There were 12 bids in All that of a Chicago firm being accepted. Its offer was to raise the Maine at its own Cost and give the United states government 3 per cent of the proceeds. All the contractors agree that the Maine could he raised but that the Job would be difficult. A cofferdam must be built entirely around the wreck. It will be constructed of Long pollings and then embarked with dirt making it water tight. Then the water can be pumped ont of the enclosure leaving the wreck exposed in the mud. Derricks and powerful lifting machinery will then be brought into use and the Hull lifted from its bed of mud. If it can be patched up so that it will float that will he done. If it cannot be raised it will be torn to pieces while the cofferdam keeps Back the water. The divers found that the wreck had settled some 40 feet in the soft mud the Bottom of the ship being 60 feet below the Low tide Mark. The Cost of raising the vessel is estimated at from $200,000 to $300,000. Its value when raised cannot be estimated but some of the contractors thought it might be Worth $400,000. One of the contractors thought that if the vessel could be floated it would be Worth $1,000,000. The general impression was that it could not be floated. The divers found two magazines id the vessel containing 300 tons of powder intact and uninjured.

Meteoric career of Alexander Hamilton Patriot and fighter. Fortunes of an immigrant boy in the american loonie so a War hero la he Teena and a Ripe statesman at thirty Duel with Burr. Copyright 1901, by g. L. Kilmer n a bit of crude Doggerel written to commemorate the tragic meeting on the Weehawken dueling grounds july 12, 1804. The victim of the fatal idiot was held up for Public venera ton As a martyred hero and the Man who fired it was Eor a e s p o n dangly exec rated. The verdict of the rhymes ter reflected popular sentiment at the time for the nation instantly caught the spirit of the opening lines of Aaron Burr what hav. You done you be killed great general Hamilton and drove the scheming adventurer into exile. Hamilton was canonized and his name enrolled among the immortal few a not born to of the two men Burr and Hamilton if blood counts for anything in shaping human destiny Hamilton should have been the adventurer and Burr the High minded statesman. One account of Hamiltons birth and parentage states that lie was the legitimate son of a divorced frenchwoman who had married a Scotchman and another that he was the natural son of a Young English woman. Whatever his parentage it availed him Little in life for lie was thrown upon the world at 13 years of age and began his struggles As a merchants clerk. The boy Hamilton was ambitious but not a dreamer. He worked hard in a counting House in the Island of Nevis West indies. Having the scribbling habit he one Day wrote up a Hurricane visit which devastated the Island and with that bit of literary Success to speak for him sailed for the american colonies. He was then 15 years old and with the Aid of a private Tutor entered Kings College As Columbia was then called. Two years later the immigrant Stripling leaped unasked to the platform of a Patriot meeting and made a burning speech for colonial rights. That was the debut of Hamilton the statesman and one of the authors of the american Constitution. The actual outbreak of War found him equally ready for the work of the hour. While the colonists were talking Young men of military spirit began to get ready to fight. Hamilton the Schoolboy formed a company of artillery among Liis Fellows and when the troops were needed la the Field the new York convention accepted the body for Active service with its Hoy Leader As Captain. The Battery was a Model of discipline and attracted the attention of Washington. his Retreat from Long Island he gladly took it along to swell his Little army. Fortune favors the bold. The troops were drawn up at White Plains to fight a hopeless Battle. Swarms of British attacked the patriots hut when their main column attempted to climb the slopes where the americans Lay in trenched Hamiltons guns swept them away by platoons. General Greene told Washington of the boy Artill Erist and Hamilton was transferred to army Headquarters where he became that confidential Aid of the commander in chief. For a youth of 20 Hamilton s Swift Rise to place was enough to turn his head. In five years the poor Hiraml Grant had reached the top. He was not Only the Aid hut the spokesman of the greatest Man in America. Washington used Hamiltons pen not As an Annalise merely but As an advocate. Talent and dash Are not so rare in Young men that Hamilton can he set up As a Marvel in this respect. But his courage was timely his capacity sex Haus less. One of the times that tried Washington s soul was after Saratoga when the american army in the North bad no foe to face. But the British Sudec Howe were marching up tin Delaware. Washington had Given Aid to Gates at Saratoga and now that Bis own depleted Many was hard press etl he sent one request upon another asking him to return the troops with others As he could spare them. Finally Hamilton then a colonel went to a Bany to urge Gates to act. The Gnu eral proposed to return Morgan s corps to Washington along with a few worn out brigades but Hamilton refused to he put off with that. He was Ludig mint and talked Hack to Gates in terms which brought the re on Forcemeats. the Way Down the Hudson the column crossed the lines of Israel Putnam a Semi Independent commander who was ambitious to recapture new Yolk. Put num actually detached part of the Washington re enforcements to help on his plans. Once More the Young Aid took the matter la his own hands. Said he to Putnam a i now sir la the most explicit terms by his excellency s authority give it As a positive order from hint Washington that All the Continental troops under your command be immediately in arched to re enforce the army under Veteran though he was a major general and a personal Power in the colonies Putnam dare not oppose the beardless boy. Because the boy had right on his Side. Hamilton s physical bravery was equal to every crisis. At Monmouth when others were shaky and doubt Hung Over the leaders he Rode to the Side of his chief and erred out a let us die Here rather than Retreat a that was the spirit for Monmouth hut on another occasion he did Retreat and that in the company of one so Gallant As Light in curse Harry Lee. After the Battle of Brandywine Hamilton and Lee were sent across the Schuylkill with a few troopers to destroy a Quantity of stores and Rob the British of so much plunder. In the midst of their work the British appeared. Light horse Harry Aud four troopers leaped Luto their saddles and Rode for their lives across a Bridge while Hamilton with the rest of the party escaped by a boat exchanging volleys with the British who thronged the Hank until out of Range. In All the dramatic incidents of Washington s career As commander Hamilton figured. He was with Washington at the time of Arnold s treason and it was from his lips that the general first Learned the terrible Story of guilt. He pointed out to Washington the disaffection in the Patriot army which endangered the cause and finally resigned from the staff when he thought his personal rights were ignored. The courtship of Hamilton with Eliza Lieth Schuyler was an incident of his Busy life in Washington s Camp. He met his Fate while on the Mission to Albany securing troops from Gates for Washington. Afterwards the Schuyler lived at Morristown when Washington made his Headquarters there. Hamilton s personality was his Strong Point. His weakness Lay in an irascible temper. Washington once accused him of want of respect for his chief. A i am not conscious of it a said he a but since you have thought of it we although Washington tried to heal the breach the Young Aid remained firm. Hamilton s figure was not commanding. He was Light but Well made. A Little lion Quot was a name which suited and which Clung to him throughout his career. A Fine shaped symmetrical head eyes deep set and full of Light and fire a Long Sharp nose above close set lips these gave to the advocate his a penetrating features a to the searcher of hearts his a piercing socially a the Little lion was a favorite. Open hearted hospitable helping any one in need with both Money and labor declining heavy fees from tie wealthy clients and taking none from the poor the Man who had made the nation Rich left Only name and Fame to his family.

As a natural result each War has its collection of state and National heroines. Emily Geiger was South Carolina s heroine of the revolution Ami her claims to respect and remembrance Are set Forth below by in the Spring of 1781 general Nathaniel Oreene attempted to capture the most important Post in upper Carolina but being advised of lord Lawdon s rapid approach with a Large British Force lie withdrew Neross the Saluda River and was pursued by rav Dou to the Enoree River. Gawd on a forces were reported divided Ami Greene considered it imperative to communicate with general Sumter who was stationed on the Wateree River 60 thut United the two might make a attack on the British general. General Sumter was Over 100 Miles away with Many Rivers and forests intervening. M re formidable than these were tin British soldiers guarding every Road leading to the South and the tory of the country Between the two Patriot forces. There was some Dit i to in finding a Man willing to undertake the mis i ii. Hut a Rirl of 18 came to general Greene and offered her services. She was Emily daughter of John Geiger an an lit Patriot who was crippled and unable t it hear arms Aud she begged an Epport nne to to do something for her country. She was a Good horsewoman and knew Tom a it. Is for Many Miles. General arc Etc hesitated to Send this a vet it less i l on so perilous a journey but finally in r insistence prevailed. To gave her a written message to Sumter which she memorized before beginning her journey. to e evening of the second a Lay after she had crossed the Saluda River and was hug the Broad Conga Reo near Columbia three of Rawdon a scouts appeared in the Road in front. As she came Frota the direction of the enemy and gave evasive answers Emily was taken into lord Rawdon a presence. He was Ivious Ami sent for two tory ring three Miles Distant to Gehe Kal Alexander Hamilton Flor and the statesman. As he had rebuked Putnam so he rebuked the Senate fur useless demands for information and that August body took the lesson meekly. He forestalled an outburst of scandal by issuing a pamphlet which was at once a confession and an Appeal Aud the american Public accepted it. The self Confidence of Hamilton was not born of audacity nor conceit but of conscious Power. Impartial contemporaries said that he was the Superior of Webster in creative Force. As an advocate before juries or As an orator on the platform Hamilton won by direct attack upon the intellects mid hearts of his hearers. He had no Silver Tongue but drove his own deep conviction Home to the heart by the spirit he put into words. Burrs Bullet was aimed not so much at a personal enemy As at a Public Nemesis. Hamilton had denounced the Arch intrigue again and again la the course of the fierce political lights following the adoption of the Constitution. He tried to make peace with Burr and finally fought As a Public duty to vindicate his dignity ills Honor and his prestige As a Leader of men. Lieu the Challenge was Given Hamilton asked for a delay of the meeting la order to Settle important affairs for his clients. Burr used the time in practising with his pistol. Just a week before the Duel Hamiltou presided at a fourth of july banquet of the society of Cincinnati. During the convivial ties of the evening he was called upon to sing a favorite Ballad which he did with spirit Burr being one of the company. The Naglit before the encounter Hamilton wrote a protest against the code ending u with a statement of his reason for fighting said he a the ability to be in tie future useful whether in resisting evil or jul effecting Good in those crises of our Public affairs which seem Likely to happen would probably be inseparable from conforming with Public prejudice in this a Bero in War a master la Council Ami a Prince in debate he could not of Ford to shirk a affair of Honor. He made no Effort to kill his antagonist but coolly stood at a disadvantage to meet burrs fire. Ilis own pistol was discharged As he fell Forward and the Bullet went la the air. George l.

Setting out again As soon As it was prudent Emily continued her ride through swamp and Forest where the darkness was intense until Daylight when with the exception of the time lost at British Headquarters she had been 24 hours in the Saddle. At 3 of clock on the afternoon of the third Day the Brave girl Rode into Sumter scamp and although almost fainting from fatigue and hunger delivered clearly the message from general Greene. It is said to limit in one hour Sumter was ready to March Aud soon after joined Gene ral Greene. In consequence of this Union of the american forces Rawdon was compelled to Retreat to Orangeburg Aud later despairing of Success he sailed for Europe. Two weeks after her ride Emily Geiger returned Home. General Greene presented her with a pair of earrings and a brooch that Are still in existence As is a Beautiful silk shawl presented to her by general Lafayette on the occasion of big last visit to thi9 companion.

R_\3. 3 , total .$2s7,070,000 the combination of these concerns 1 forms a substantial monopoly of the Iron Anil steel Industry of the United states. It need have no fear of successful rivalry since it possesses extraordinary facilities for crushing Competition. Its tag Aizers Are the men whose names Are identified with recent operations of magnitude in the Railroad world by which a a Community of interest a has been established Between important transportation lines. There gentlemen Are also extensively engaged in the Coal business Aud besides control vast deposits of Iron Ore. They hold in their hands the raw materials tie facilities of manufacture Aud transportation and the control of the markets. If in their capacity As Railroad men they should kindly Accord to themselves in their capacity As producers of Iron and steel the favor of discriminating rates or if through their control of Coal production they should lend to their Iron and steel business a helping 4handt any attempt at Competition would be futile. Probably the worst capitalistic abuse of the present time is the secret rebate and it is a matter of Public concern to know whether tie organizers of the United slates steel company feel a just Abhorrence of that illegitimate and pernicious practice. Since legislation has been quite unable to Check it in lesser and comparatively insignificant corporations it will be difficult indeed to reach this colossus if it chooses to use its vast opportunities to the Public detriment. If it be Content to do a legitimate business in a legitimate Way giving labor which is the most important Factor in its operations. A just and equitable re Ward and Selling its products to the consumer at a fair and reasonable margin of profit above the Cost of production and transportation the Public can have no special reason for quarrel with this greatest of All Industrial combinations though there Are Many who w ill decry As harmful to the Public interests the centralization in a single corporate body of such vast elements of Power and influences As Are embodied in the United states steel company. Testimony of handwriting experts. The refusal of Justice Fursman to permit a handwriting expert to give to the jury his opinion As to the authorship of certain papers submitted by the prosecution in the Kennedy murder trial in hl9 court in new York raises an important Point in criminal jurisprudence and bears upon the whole question of expert testimony As Well As the particular form of testimony covered by the ruling. In the present instance it was sought by the prosecuting attorney to identify the defendant a9 the murderer by proving by comparisons that he was the writer of certain signatures found on the person of the murdered woman. This method has heretofore been generally permitted by the courts. Justice Fursman however held the writings offered for comparison were not disputed writings that they were not in Issue not in controversy and that expert test irony As to their authorship could not be admitted unless they were in dispute. The effect of this ruling if it should be sustained by the court of appeals we ill be to place much narrower limits on expert testimony in new York state courts than now surround it. Indeed it would practically eliminate the testimony of handwriting experts from the majority of cases in which they have been a considerable Factor at least in the matter of occupying the courts time and the expenditure of the Public a Money. In so Many cases have these experts apparently possessing equal qualifications been found to flatly contradict each other regarding any Given exhibit of penmanship that the Public and even the courts themselves come to look with More or less discredit upon this sort of testimony. Frequently the expert witnesses whether in the matter of handwriting chemistry Medicine or surgery Are imbued to give purely sex Parte testimony Lulu half of the party by whom they Are employed. Unquestionably there Are times in criminal cases when tort it opinion of men trained in specialities is vital but it would seem that in the interest of Justice Aud Public Economy some change or limitation might be put upon the prevailing system of sex Parte employment of experts. As Jug tire Fursman apparently brought up the matter for the purpose of having the court of appeals pass upon it the final decree of that tribunal will be awaited with interest. In View of the recommendations sent to Congress by the president for rewarding the naval heroes who destroyed cer Yeray a Fleet in Santiago Harbor there is special interest in the publication just Ina la by the editor of the naval service Gazette of a conversation which he had with rear Admiral then Commodore Schley on braid the Brooklyn the Day after the Battle. When congratulated on the thoroughness of his achievement As evidenced by the smoking wrecks along the cuban coast the Commodore disclaimed his right to any special credit for what he called simply the performance of his duty but lie did not hesitate to express his Joy at the Chance which had brought him the Opportunity to fight and win a great Battle. A i am thankful a a he added a that it fou us a us prepared and that we did our work so Well that there can be no dispute As to where the Victory a moment later the visitor said a a you la get a substantial Reward for yesterdays work a Aud then inquired a if you could name your own Reward what would you have from tin president and Congress a after the Commodore had declared that it was not for him to measure the value of what had been d one he continued a i would suggest this As a Good and sufficient Reward let the president or Congress have struck off Bronze medals commemorating the Victory. I it one be Given to every officer and Man who participated in tie Battle one of these medals to go to me. I would value it highly. You know. I done to believe in special medals of Gold and Silver. Just Plain Bronze medals f r All alike. Then there is one More Reward which i would like. It would moan much to me. It is a the thanks of Congress by that s All 1 expect All 1 Hope for. With it and my own consciousness of duty done i shall be the editor of the naval service Gazette asserts that Admiral Schley has not changed his views Siree that Day. We never knew a Man to have very Good Luck with the Mammoth Clover As a Hay crop. It is too coarse and is Apt to Lodge when the big stems become mildewed and unpalatable. As a fertilizer the Green crop to be slowed under it is better than the medium Clover and is All right for a pasture. So great is the fertilizing value of fhe Clover Plant that we had As soon have a Field in Clover two years removing the crops of Bay and seed a a to have 15 Good loads of manure spread on each acre of the Laud. And there is besides the added Fertility a better condition of the soil secured with the Clover than is possible in any other Way. We have a Friend who makes a pee Salty of buying Good calves and feeding them High till they Are 1 fear old then Selling them. He tells of he can make an average gain of $23 per head on them the secret being that the ration fed them will make nearly twice As Many pounds of meat at this age As it will on the 2 or 3 year old steer. Delaware does not seem disposed to part with her unique Mode of punish intent the whipping Post and Pillory Early in the present session of the state legislature a movement was made to reduce the scope of their use. And certain Bills looking to that end were passed through one Branch of the legislature but these efforts have ultimately resulted in an enactment in precisely the opposite direction. Not Only has the other House refused to pass the Bill abolishing the Pillory but both houses have now passed a Bill which awaits the governors signature prescribing Public whippings for wife beaters who Are to receive from 5 to 30 lashes. By a general consensus of judgment wife beaters Are among the most despicable of characters and ought to receive severe and humiliating treatment. Imprisonment is hardly a fair penalty for the wife suffers from the Lack of the husbands services. Fines scarcely reach the evil for the vicious Man is Seldom cured by a Mere stroke at his pocketbook and often the Fine reacts upon the wife. Public humiliation and physical suffering giving to the offender his own Medicine used to be found just effective in the Days of drastic treatment in the name of the Law. A Friend of ours bought a Well bred but untrained and unfitted horse not kit no since for $75. Lie kept Tho horse for 70 Days and fitted him up to a rive then sent him to Chicago where be was sold for $345 to a scalper trip the next Day matched him up and sold the team to a new la Ork Nabob for $3,000. There is a lesson in the foregoing for men who have Well bred and untrained horses. A Reader wants to know what to do with the red ants which ruin his Strawberry bed. We would move the bed for we know of no Way to get rid of the ants. An old Hen Turkey with a lot of Little turks will if cooped near a ant Bill clean them out the quickest of anything we know of. In certain parts of Mexico and Central America Are caves of Large dimensions which for Ages Bovy been the roosting and Breeding places of millions of bats whose excrement have accumulated to such an extent that a most valuable fertilizer is available. One Man owning such caves has sold 1,700 tons of this fertilizer at $48 per ton. A a Mann line maid. A bostonian while exploring the flle9 of n paper printed in Bis town a Century ago came across this rather startling advertisement a is Rogers informs those ladies who wish to be dressed by him. I he on Assembly or Ball Days to give him notice the previous Day. Ladles who engage to and Don t dress must him half in cd inn. The censorship is a very real thing in China. There any one who writes in immoral Book is punished with 100 blows of the heavy Bamboo and banishment for life. Any one who reads it is also punished. We came across one of those tree paddlers a few Days ago who Are Selling fruit Trees to Farmers at More than twice the Cost at which they could be obtained from Ady Home nurseryman. Don t such prices.
