Tim Ihlp Vonttvltia Equally I'p to Speci- Illustrated by Kecent Re- Newt from the Nntloniil CupllHl. May The report of the lioard of officers charged with con- ducting the trials of the three pneumatic guns, of the dynamite cruiser Vesuvius, was made public by the navy depart- ment fegsforCluy. In summing up the insults- or the board says: iTullj Hpeakiug. the vessel as a gun plat- form behaved very satisfactorily. There many details concerning the steer- ing gear and conning tower which i on It I very much improved. AH to the iietiiftl efficiency of the vessel for offensive purposes, the board has little data on vvhich to base an opinion. May 30 three shots were fired at a target towed by the at a siieeil of ten knots across the line of lire, the vessel steaming seventeen knots. One of these would undoubtedly have struck a vessel. This the board con- sult is a favorable showing under fiicitmstances. Tlie board considers thHt the tittmgH nnd application for loading and lirmg the guns as fitted are very crude and capable of great improve- ment. "The Iniard would recommend that tlio nuns should be carefully ranged in some suitable locality where the ball of theproji'i tiles can be accurately deter- mined trom shore stations, ttiat some simple and suitable sight should be titled, and such changes made in tha meclmii'Mu for the loading and firing the guns MS may be found advisable, and that the vessel be then subjected to such further tests as well as to fully deter- mine her efficiency as a torpedo throw- er." In view of the statements by the board tliat the range of the guns were not accurately determined and that tiricnt data, was not secured to ascertain the defensive value of the cruiser. Secre- tary Tracy has ordered the board to re- convene and conduct another trial to settle these questions. Ordrrrtl Hack to Clermnnjr. WAMIHNUTOS. May Sec retary Nottletou yesterday ordered that Mrs. Janna Hinnick. a German immi- grant, 71 years old, who arrived in Bal- timore on the 30th mst., per steamship be returned to Germany, under the terms of the immigration law, which excludes all aliens afflicted with a loathsome or a dangerous contagious disease. This immigrant is suffering from an ogirrnvnted form of lupus or tu- bercle of the skin, which the examining snrgeon pronounces both loathsome ana contagious. Her eyelids are eaten away by the disease, and upon her face are a number of horrible ulcers. Her son. who resides in Illinois, offered to give bond that she should not become a public charge, bnt the treasury offi- cials tlecide that such a bond cannot guarantee people against contracting this djseawe. Lupus is reported t.o be spreatnng rapuny m. aontnera einrope, where, until recently, it was almost un- known, or confined to narrow bound- aries. Assistant Secretary Nettletou has informed Mrs. Hinnick's son that if he wishes to test the case in the courts he may do HO, in thu meantime the re- turn of Mrs. Hinnick is deferred until June !3, to allow her son to avail himself of legal advice.

A Call Will Me taaneil for a Third Party Convention, to Be Held In SprlngHold. Other State COI.UMBUS, 6., May more than 200 delegates were present when the meeting of the Ohio Fanners' union was called to order Wednesday morning. It was a representative gathering, how- ever, ariii included delegates from the Alliance, Grange Patrons of Industry and several other fanners' societies. S. H. Ellis, who is master of the Ohio state grange, presided, and the session was spent in perfecting an organization, ar- ranging for the appointment of the com- mittees on credentials, resolutions, etc. The representation was arranged with regard to congressional districts, and committee membership was distributed equally. The morning session adjourned until p. in., pending the completion of the credential committee's report. Conversation with the delegates leaves little room to doubt that a call will be issued for a third party convention to place in nominatoin candidates for all the state offices. A printed call issued from Cincinnati convention by Joshua Crawford and the other Ohio delegates, which asked for a state convention to be held in Springfield, O., Aug. 5 and 0, will probably come before the conven- tion for endorsement. It is not thought, though, that it will meet with much favor. There is a strong sentiment among the delegates in favor of haying this meeting to assume the responsibili- ty of issuing the call. The call issued by Crawford is not considered sufficiently official, and therefore, would luck the weight of u third party movement, which is directly fathered by the con- vention. TAX EVASION, A Startling Exposure of on Affair In Tax Collection. TOLEDO, O., May back tax cases against ex-Governor Ashley, prove an immense exposure of tax The inquisitors had their case well worked up, and when Mr. Ashley ap- peared in Toledo last night to deliver n lecture, the papers were ready to serve. The governor was cited to show cause why the sum of should not be placed on the tax duplicate for sev- eral years past. The most of this prop- erty consists of bonds in the Toledo and Ann Arbor railway. Mr. Ashley has had a mixed residence for a number of years. For several reasons he 1ms at various times claimed a New York residence; at other times a Michigan residence; but last fall when the Republicans nominated him for con- gress in this district, he declared that Toledo was hia home. It is believed this circumstance first put the big tax inquisitor, M. Morganthafer, on his track. Ashley says the suit will not amount to much. Another man whom the in- quisitor is after a bond broker, A. L. Spitzer. Other capitalists are on the rack, but the Ashley matter promises to eclipse everything of the character in Ohio.________ Collided With an Engine.

"The lesson taught them at the parish prison has hnd the most excellent effect, and I do not anticipate that we will have any other further trouble with them.

Kennan, whose home is siipposed to be in St. Joseph, Me. The letter is dated March 18, and assigned "Frank It was en- closed in an envelope from ftie United States consulate at Cape Town. 'The British ship Neptune, Capt. Saunders, master, of London, was re- iently driven ashore off the coast of Natal, adjacent to the free states, and all but five of the crew of fifty-eight perished. The escape of the five oersons was in itself a miracle. They were the chief mate, named Adams, a Greek; A. B. Leaman, an Englishman, W. A. Kennan and Jeff. Allen, two young Americans. Allen was acting in the capacity of purser, and had shipped from Calcutta, India, while Kennan had shipped from Rangoon, Burmah. ''When the ship was wi-eoked the crew took to the bouts, which were capsized. F6ur of those named managed to swim ashore, while Kennan secured a life buoy, and floated to the shore, with a petmonkey in his anus, but the monkey perjshed before reaching land. The party stopped nine days at the scene of the wreck and interred all the bodies that floated ashore. During this time suffered greatly, as they had to sleep in the open air and subsist on mussels and wild fruits. Tlie five men started on foot to Natal, 170 milea distant. "On the way they were captured by a band of Zulus, who stripped off thoir clothing andproceeded to torture them by tying them to a tree and beating them with the jagged club made of rhinoceros hide. While the fiends were in the midst of this barbarous pastime they were surprised by ft party of Boer hunters, armed witli with mus- kets, who charged upon them and put them to flight. But three of the surviv- ors of the shipwreck were already dead, the Zulus having butchered them with assegais These three were Jeff. Allen, the Greek and Leamen, Ken- nan and Adams were the only ones who survived the torture. "It is heart-sickening to hear Adams relate the way the poor men plead- ed for mercy. It seems he be- came unconscious after the first two strokes with the shambock. Kennan, he soys, received three strokes, and, from what Adams could under- stand, the chief wanted to spare his life and take him captive to his kraal, while the others he ordered killed. "Kennan apd Adams were safely con- veyed to Natal aud thence to Can6 Town. Kennan is still insane from his suffering." ________ Kennan Known at St. Soaoph. ST. JOSEPH, Mo., May Wilfrc4 A.

As soon as the verdict was ex- plained to the pretty little Italian, she burst into n violent fit of weeping. Later she left the court room with her mother, and the crowd followed them for some distance. Ban Into a Rock.

A Sadden and Indecent Baste for tbe Burial Cnasd a Postponement of Interment nnttl a Mortem Kxnminatlon can be Made. Mrs. Mary Cross, formerly Mary Wentz, of doubtful repute, died this morning at her home on East Third street and arrangements were made to hold the funeral at this afternoon. She was George Cross' fourth The people who live in the vicinity suspected that Mrs. Cross did not die from natural causes aud they reported to that effect j to Prosecutor Bell who made a prompt investigation. Mrs. Cross in her time had been afflicted with venereal ail- ments and the symptoms, in death, are similar to symptoms of poisoning. It wasrumored that Cross was rather too friendly toward another woman which coupled with unseemly haste to have the obsequies over, aroused suspicion. Prosecutor Bell thought the circum- stances were such as would warrant holding a post mortem examination and he appointed two physicians to proceed to-make such examination. George Cross, the woman's husband, strenuously opposes the post mortem examination, but the authorities insist that it shall be made, even if it be necessary to place Cross under arrest. jDrs. Reed and Baughman were ap- pointed to take charge of the autopsy and will perform it some time this aft- ernoon or evening. The deceased wo- man was 34 years of age. Reduced lluten.

What if to-day we're parting time shall but prove us true: Though absent we 11 be loyal to the blue. 'Round Learning's shrine devoutly we're gathered year by year Where may be found rich treasure by those who persevere. The many that have faltered along the nanow 0, had theyonlyconqueredand learned to fight and stay! Though we might wish to linger 'mid scenes which have grown dear, Hope's star shall ever guide us to brighten and to cheer: And never shall the motto of this day be forgot, When right shall prompt our fight not. The commencement exercises of the high school giaduating class of 1S91, at the Congregational church this after- noon, were attended by a large audi- ence. The Bev. Dr. H. L. Wiles in- voked Divine blessing, after which "Hail! Smiling was sung by the school chorus. The salutatorian, Miss Florence Au, who won second honors, welcomed the audience and read an interesting essay on "The Intensity of Modern Life." The salutatory is published in full and the accompanying extracts from the essay are worthy of care'ful reading: SALUTATORY. It is right, it is a pleasant duty to make some public expression of our gratitude to our many friends whose appreciation of our labors and interest in our welfare ia shown by their pres- ence here this afternoon. We have been carrying on an intellectual eon- test with tongue, pen and brain for twelve long years. Now the contest is over and we are filled with the strang- est of bitter-sweet feeling of comminglea joy and to have reached our graduating exercises, sorrow to enter into a class perform- ance for the last time. However, we graciously give to the world a speci- men of our thought and eloquence "Mid the sweet inspiration of music and flowers." We aim at life's success, fierce monster of opposition ever eared its head in the path of a human "That wound not shrink and cower Before the dauntless power Of a fearless human will." INTENSITY OF MODERN LIFE. Such is the impetuosity and intense nxiety with which we of the present ay pursue every object capable of at- racting our attention that the thing, loderation, is all but unknown among s. The word itself seems in danger f being obliterated from our vocabu- ry, for in all our undertakings noth- ng appears to stop us, nothing .satisfy us short of a grand onsummation or a stupendous failure. 'he merchant, banker and speculator re each so intensely devoted to the usiness of increasing their wealth, of dding thousands to the thousands al- eady accumulated, and have become o absorbed in their respective oeeupa- ions that everything else seems lost nd swallowed up in the one idea of multiplication. Nor is the student rimming his midnight lamp scarcely ess intent on securing a conspicuous seat in the temple of fame. The am- >itious politician is straining every nerve to advance himself to some en- iable place, some exalted station, vhence his name shall descend to fu- ure generations in his coun- ty's history. But what of the unknown poor, wrapped n the mantle of poverty and fed with he unsatisfying crumbs of desire? Can you think for a moment to com- >are them with the great and rich of he world? Is there aught of intensity n their obscure lives? Yes, the high- est degreefof intensity of uffering, of want, of privations in all ts forms. The necessity of toiling hat others may grow_ rich by their abors. This is intensity such as men f the world know nothing of; it is so unheeded, so invisible to the eye of the world's vast majority that its wail of suffering goes by unheard, its deeds unrecorded, its history unwritten. But o return. What the coming noon and evening may disclose no one can now foresee, much less foretell. It is a mysterious problem of small portion each day can be truly solved ind no more. And, therefore, weclose without so much as venturing to pass :he threshhold of this vast temple ded- icated to the labors and energies of every-day life. It would be impossible to give a sat- isfactory synopsis of all the literary productions delivered by the graduates an account of their being so brief that nothing less than the entire discourse would be interesting. As the NEWS has not the space to devote to publish- ing all in full, which would require at least one whole page of this paper, tbe titles of the essays and orations with the names of the authors, except those of the salutatoriaa and valedictorian must suffice and they occur hi the fol- lowing order of the programme: "The Good Old essay, by Jennie Bloor; "Capital and oration, by Boma A.
