New York, June 2.-David Barrett, a young ex-convict, was standing on pier 37, East river, almost ready to jump into the river and end his life because he coixld not get work. Ho would not go back to his old thievish life, for he remembered the words of his mother, who recently died, and with her last breath begged him to live an honest life. While Barrett was musing ho saw little 8-year-old Charles O'Connor, who �with other boys, Wiia fishing on the pier, fall into the water. Barrett jumped after the boy, who was in a dangerous place between a canal boat and the pier. He was being sucked imder the boat by the current when Barrett reached him. Barret caught the b6y's clothing with his teeth and swam with him to the end of the dock, where they were rescued. Both were taken to Govemeur hospital. Barrett told the story of his life, and how he had tried to live right since his mother died. He said he had made up his mind to starve rather than steal. He learned the iron moulders' trade while serving a ten years' sentence in prison, but no one would emi)loy him. People who know the yoiing man said that he lias Tcs;cued ten jierscms from drowhing. MPK'S SACUIinCE. Tlie X r]nf; Palaco Developed a Hero. Fort Worth, Tex., June 2.-It is almost impossible to form any satisfactory estimate of the losses in the fire, as the owners of the exhibits are not on hand, but $100,000 is believed will cover it. The valuable historical fruit and mineral collections, as well as numerous artistic designs,can scarcely be estimated in money. The palace was irisursd for �tl 5,000. The Eight Band's loss 'will reach $10,000, as about one-half of their instruments and sixty uniforms which had recently been purchased at a cost of more than $5,000, and their baggage were-all consumed. The chief loss was manuscript music containing all of Prof. Hecker's recent compositions. A. l. Hayne died a noble death. When the fire broke out he carried women and children to the window and dropped them to the ground. His last charge was a helpless woman, and with her in his arms he jitmped from the window, when he fainted, Hw clothes were on fire, and before they conld be put out he was so badly burned that he died, at about 1:30 a. m. Mi\ Payne was a railroad conductor and an Englishman by birth. Testing; lowa*s Railroad l^aivs. Des Moines, la., June 3.-Attorney General Stone notified the attorney of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern railroad that he would present to Judge S. H. TTairall, at Iowa City, June 19, the motion of the .Iowa railway commisssoners to dissolve the temporary injunction granted by the judge to the Burlmgton, Cedar Rapids and Northern restraining the commissioners from making or promulgating joint rates between the plaintiff company and any other line of the road. The motion to dissolve denies that the law enacted by the last general assembly is unconstitutional; declares that plaintiff's petition does iiot show that the company is entitled to any relief, and that the commissioners were only about to per-fonn an official duty under a valid statute. Much interest is felt by the jobbers in the outcome of the case. Ti-.T ..rl'l- ____I];,:-, I'.IMII .('.I'll't ABOllTfPSiCO. The Work of the Eleventh Census Begins To-day.

Milwaukee, Wis., Jime 2.-Quite a sensation was created in Republican circles by the announcement that at the recent conference of Wisconsin Republicans at Chicago Governor Hoard offered to retire at the end of his present term,if. the party leaders deemed his candidacy for a second term inimical to success on account of his strong advocacy of the Bennett law. The governor had iDrepared a letter of withdrawal, but after calm deliberation the piirticipants in the conference decided that the interests of the Republican party, demanded that Governor Hoard ^houUl stand for re-election. The party will therefore renominate him and place him dn a favor of t: jlatfoim wliich will declare iii le removal of the obnoxious disti'ict provisions in the Bennett law. St. Paul a Craxeyard. St. Paul, Minn., June 3.-The May festival, which began here Tuesday night under the auspices of the Gounod clubj collapsed because of the poor attendance. A crowd of 1,000 people, mostly women, were outside of the Pe'jple's auditorium clamoring for admission, and beside Emma Juch, Clementina Devere, Emil Fisher, Signer 'Perotti and seven or. eight otlier noted singers were labororing with the mailage-ment for the amounts promised them for coming here. Half on hour later an oflicer put in an appearance with an attachment for the box receipts, and spectators and slncers went. away in a high state of wrath. The loss will fall upon ! the guarantees of the festival, mostly wealthy people of St. Paul. , Kescued Seamen. New York, June 3.-The steamer Exeter City,which anived from Bristol, brings Capt.

An AeroQanVli Fata." seattle, WftSh'j;)?/""'-''^'*"^^' 'well knp^JTftd" jumper,:::^ Washington, June2-Tht.xaachinery for taking the censtu fo:- 1890 will be put in motion to-day t.;l over tho United States, and as it will be pushed as expeditiously as possible, Superintendent Porter anticipates early returns to his office so that the work of tabulating can be entered upon and complieted within a reasonable pei;iod. All the preliminary matters have been arranged, blanks prepared, enumerators instructed as to their duties, and all that remains to be done is to collect the data Jwhicli it has been decided shall become a part of the census. It requires 44,000 men as enumerators to gather the requisite informa-tion,and each of these is either employed m a definite locality or upon fsome special topic. This,however,does not include the additional thousands of clerks employed in collecting and tabulating the returns made that will come bade from all over the country as the result of the labors of the enumerators, sp it can be seen at a glance what a coriis of men it requires, and Tmiiiense Sum of Money must be expended to accomplish this undertaldng. Mr. Porter has accepted and confirmed the supervisors' selections of enumerators except in a few instances, where the fitness of the appointees was questioned, and, if it was shown that they were incompetent, others were substituted. In the south, in some places, objection was made to the appointment of colored men, but the supervisors being held responsible for their men, he concluded to teust to their discretion, and declined to interfere upon that ground. It is known, however, that appointments of this kind are few, and even in the case ot a colored supervisor nearly all the enumerators designated by him are white men. It is not anticijjated that much trouble will be experienced in obtaining Answers to the I'i^ucstlons that are to be propoundfed, 'but where refusals are met with they will be at once reported and steps taken to enforce. The supeiintendent is not given any dis-cretion-in the matter, but it is made obligatory upon him to report each and every person who fails to comply -svith the requirements of the law to the proper persons, who will institute a vigorous prosecution against the violators of it and they become liable to a fine of $100. It is thought that some trouble will be experienced in securing answers to the inquiries Kegarding Moi'tg.uges, as well as those concerning special information in relation to disease, about which physicians have recently given opinions, and declined to furnish it. No exceptions wUl be made in propounding the questions, or harsh measures resorted to in enforcing the law, but where it becoines plain that the provisions of the law are intentionally being violated, the parties so offending will be called upon to take the consequences. Superintendent Porter, in response to telegi-aphic inquiries, heard from more than a hundred of the census supervisors in various sections of the country, saying that everything was iu readiness to begin the work. He has no doubt but what all are ready and that the work has begun in each and all of the 17o districts without hitch or obstacle. Assistant Chief Clerk Wardle of his office has gone to New York city to watch the beginmng of operations there and in Brooklyn, where the population census will disclose more than 2,000,000 jieople. ._ The'ltlver and HarliOr Bill. WASmNGTON, June 3.-The absence from the city of Senator Frye, the chairman of the commerce committee, has delayed the consideration of the river and harbor bill on the senate side of the Capitol. The delay is not all serious, as, with the silver bill and the taidfl b'Ul hanging fire, it is not likely the river and harbor bill -will have much chance of being considered within the next month. Senator Frye will return to,the city on Tuesday of this week, and the committee will then begin in earnest the consideration of the bill. It has been determined that no shearings will be given to the representatives of., the different interests affected by the bill, but members of the senate will be given hearings on the improvements asked by their states; .The bill will be taken up in the order of the appropriations, and the first week, wU probably be consumed in debating the appropriations for New England. The Pacific coast comes at the bottom of the list, and it will be last considered. There is very little doubt that the bill will pass the senate; probablj; with the appropriations materially increased.,, It will be in conference for some time,but will doubts less go the president before the adjournr mentof congress. .,- ; Bro^v;j, tho Htatl^liciun, Tiikcs Strong Grounds Against the McKlnley 11111. Washington, June 3. - Henry A. Brown of Massachusetts, tho well-known sugar expert and political economist, has addressed an open letter to Senator Morrill, chairman, and to tho members of the senate finance committee, taking strong grounds against the house tariff bill stxgar schedule. Mr. Brown fortifies his statements with official data, and facts and deductions which he presentB concisely and with great force. He shows that instead of only 8 or 10 per cent, of the sugar annually consumed iu this country being produced here, as some have claimed in congress, that nearly 17 per cent, was produced in the Jnited States last year, and that the proportion of Ameiican sugar is rapidly iiicreasing. Mr. Brown claims that the consumption of sugar as an article of human food in this country is greater than in Great Britain, where low gi-ade sugar is fed to cattle; anil tlmt considering the money disbur.sed for producing and re-limng sugar in this country, which equals the duty paid, sugar is cheaper here than in any other country. Mr. Brown claiins that raising the color lino from 13 to 10 Dutch standard cannot cheapen sugar to consuuior.s, but will benefit foreign producers only; and argues that four-ttntlis of a cent is no protection to American refiners, and if a bounty tax is to be forced on the people it should apply to every pound of sugar of any grade and every kind produced in this country. He says that not less than one million wage earners depend on our su.gar industries for the svipport of four times that number of men,women and children, among whom are quarter of a million of negroes, who wi\l be driven to starve or steal if the industry is destroyed. There is no evidence, he says, that any large body of consumers ot sugar in this country have asked, or desire congi'ess to abolish the sugar duty and destroy one of the grandest and most extensive industries in this coimtry in order that they nia3' save a few cents per annum on their sugar bills, "in their minds' eye;" neither is there anythnig to be gained by "mokeying" with the growing sugar industries of this nation, to any political party or .section of the Union, except disaster. He suggests an experimental reduction of 25 per cent, of the present duty us reasonable and safe. The Congressional^oreeast. .Washington, June r3.-The senate will resume to-day the.
