In answer to the question what book Has

The narrow path, straight as a rule could
make it, was plain to my eyes as the foot

under the apple trees. I hung entranced
over every step in ;the marvelous journey,

was Beautiful, and it stood by the highway

Delicious to imagination were the good
things the travelers had to eat by the way.
The raisins and pomegranates, the cordials,
wine red as blood and those wonderful
grapes that go down so sweetly as to cause
the lips of them that are asleep to speak.
The feasts almost made up for the fights
with scaly dragons and terrific shapes coming
ont the burning pit, terrors that made
hideous the road through the Dark Valley,
and satisfied my juvenile love ot the myste
rious and horrible.
Sweet to childish fancy were the rarities
and fair shows of the Interpreter's Honse;
the letter of the king which smelt after the
manner of the best perfumes; the orchards
and vineyards of the Delectable Mountains
(then I had never seen a mountain), and
the loving shepherds atBeulah who strewed
flowers before the feet oi the pilgrims bound
for the city of their Prince.
Here and there I had to spell out hard
words, many things were puzzling, but the
Tery wonderments added to the charm of the
story. "What was a qnagmire, what was a

how conld one grasshopper burden a man,

exultant feeling one has in cathedrals re

It was winter time, and the pleasanter for

New Yobk, June L Patrick Fitzger
ald, who keeps boats to hire at the foot of
Bast Eighty-ninth street, stood under his
shed just before 1 o'clock this afternoon
watching three men who had come up the
East river in a row boat The stiff breeze
had roughened the water, but one of the
three men sat in' the stern with his hands pn
the gunwales aiding the rocking motion of
the boat by swaying his body from side to
side. The man at the oars, too, was appar
ently trying to capsize the boat, or see how
much tipping it would stand without actually-going
over. Finally he lost his hat.
He pulled up close to it, but before he could
get it the boat went over, spilling its occu
pants in the river about 100 feet offshore.
1 Jfitzgerald shouted to Alonzo Jerolomer,
who was on a float near by, and Jerolomer
and another man put off in a boat to rescue
the three men. Two of them had struck out
for shore, after clinging to the capsized boat
for a few moments. The third was drifting
down stream. He was the man who had
sat quietly inthe boat. His head appeared
above the water two or three times, and
then he disappeared. The others were res
cued. They were taken to the police sta
tion and there gave their names as Osborn
Mackay and Peter Linden. They said the
man who floated down the river was Corne

The police sergeant thought they intended
to capsize the boat, and they wcreield on a
charge of homicide.

AKnmberof Tonng West Enders Enjoyed

On Thursday, Decoration Bay, a number
of young people who called themselves- the
Social Brigade of "West End enjoyed them
selves in a grove several miles beyond
The brigade was organized under the
management of Messrs. George Phillips and
Stewart Horner.and consisted of 30 persons,
ladies and gentlemen. The brigade was
taken to the grove, at which it arrived
near noon, in two four-horse wagons. Sin
ner being sooi? prepared and over, the party
indulged in numerous games, and pleasure
seemed to be at its height, when all were
forced to seek shelter from the rain which
came down Abundantly. The gentleman
who owned the grove kindly invited the
party into the honse, and at his consent
they took fuH possession.
Sapper was soon prepared and those who
so desired ate and drank freely, and at 7:30
the wagons were re-loaded and a start was
made for home, where all seemed anxions to
be. The rain fell continuously all the way,
but all melancholy feelings were driven
away by singing, the music of which seemed
to charm and stimulate even the horses. At
9.30 the tired party arrived near the place
from whence they had left more than 12

THE HflftTOfl EULES
In Uie' Republican1' County Commit
tee delayed Awhile. '
IT WILL COME A MONTH HENCE.
Home .Signs of the Expected Tussle at
PEAIS1 FOB THE BETIB1HG OFFICERS
There was just the beginning of a battle
over the rule question' at the meeting of the
County Republican Executive Committee
at City Hall yeerday afternoon, when it
was cut short and the gttns of oratory were
spiked by an adjournment for four weeks.
The organization of the committee had been
an event anxiously looked for since, the
primaries, as it was expected that then the
Magee, or rather Fllnn, and Quay forces
could be seen in the flesh and not on the
tally sheets as made out by either faction. ,
The Flinn claims of a majority were ap
parently well founded by the appearance
of the committee as it gathered itself to
gether in Common Council Chamber.
There was qnito a different scene than that
which usually characterized former meet
ings. The membership and attendance were
not so large by .nearly 100 and the membeiB
were more easily handled. In consequence
of this the committee got down to. work at
330, with President Von Bonnhorst in the
chair. The roll of membership was read by
"W. H. McCleary, Secretary Berry being
weak as regarded his' voice. The attend
ance was rather large, but the Eighth dis
trict showed up with but orie member.
The lob'by was filled with some City Hall
officials and others interested, but to the
many who usually attend outside the rail
'there was more to be seen about The Dis
patch bulletin board.
THE NEW 0FFICEE3,
Chairman Von Bonnhorst announced an
election of officers as the first business, and
to begin the business "William Flinn, he of
"home-rule" fame, nominated "W. D. Porter,
Esq., of Allegheny, for Chairman. John
N. Neeb, of Allegheny, wa3 nominated for
Vice President by Wiljiam Langhurst, and
Bobsrt Berry for Secretary was proposed by
"William McCleary. The gentlemen were
all elected, and Mr. Potter being absent
owing to illness, Mr. Neeb grasped the
gavel and assumed the dnties of Chairman.
The first resolution offered was by A. O.
Bobertson. It was to the effect that the
sufferers by the flood be tendered tho sym
pathy of the committee, and that each mem
ber use his best efforts to do alj that he can
in the way of tendering relief. The resolu
tion was unanimously adopted.
Then the rule question arose. It arose in
material form in the person of Mr- Flinn,
who offered a resolution that the active
chairman appoint a Committee of Bules,
consisting of nine members, each Legisla
tive district to be represented, and that all
propositions as to rnies snonid De submitted
to the committee without debate.
This didn't strike Walter Lyon as being
proper, and he moved to amend by having
the chairman appoint the committee, Mr.
Flinn said that it didn't matter who made
the appointments. "There's been a good
deal of talk about these rules," said Mr.
Flinn, "and I want to see them changed,
and as soon as possible.
Mr. Lyon This Committee on Bules will
have 'a great deal of work to do, and the
Chairman should be held responsible.
After some small talk Mr. Lyon's amend
ment was put and defeated, and the commit
tee was appointed as iouows:
First district, W. D. Porter: Second. C.
"W. Dahlinger: Third, John Gripp; 'Fourth-
r Ji. jucvieori xtitu, it imam Jiiinn
and A. C. Bobertson; Sixth, Dr. E G. Fos
ter; Seventh, "Walter Lyon; Eighth, "Will
Mr. Flinn then moved to reconsider the
vote under which the so-called obnoxious
rules were adopted.
Mr. C. "W. Bobison, of Allegheny I sec
Mr. Flinn Did you vote for the rules?
Mr. Bobison No, sir, I
Mr. Flinn I thought you couldn't sec
ond the motion.
John F. Cox thought the reconsideration
of the rules would dissolve the" body, as it
would then have nothing to authorize its
existence. He said that every rule pro
posed by this new committee be rejected
and the presentrules would then be adopted.
ILLEGAL ADOPTION ALLEGED.
Mr. Lyon said that at the time these rules
were supposed to have been adopted there
were other rules in force. "If we refuse
these rules the others will be in force. The
present rules were never legally adopted.'
The chair ruled that the only way to get rid
of the rules was to reconsider the vote.
Mr. Lyon took exceptions to this by saying
that only 80 members at present could not
undo what 180 had done last year. How
ever, Mr. Flinn's motion to reconsider was
passed, and then John B. Henricks moved
that the rules be referred to the committee.
Mr. "Flinn moved to amend this by adopt
ing all rules except No. 23 relating to any
John S. Bobb This committee is abont to
antagonize every Bepnblican in the countv
who voted at the last primaries with the un
derstanding that the rules were to be
changed. They voted to wipe out the rules
and here we are abont to adopt them. If
we adopt them the committee may not make
a report for a year.
"While this was going on "Walter Lyon,
Mr. Flinn and others were consulting, and
as a result Mr. Flinn moved that when the
rnmmittee adiourn it do so to mnet in fan
weeks to hear a 'report from the Committee
on Bules. Tbis was adopted with a good
grace by all.
The following resolution was introduced
by Mr. Flinn and then adopted!
Besolved, That the officers and members of
the Republican County Committee or 1888 are
entitled to the thanVs of tho Bepnblicans of
Allegheny county for their efforts which re
sulted in maKin
more than zo.ouo
Mr. Bobertson then paid a tribute to ex
Chairman Von Bonnhorst, after which the
meeting was adjourned.
It was the sentiment of many of the com
mittee that the rules should be changed so
as to allow each election district a
member in ,the County Committee, which
wonld place the membership at the same
number as before the operation of the much-talked-of
Cramps of the Mnicles Cnred.
John L Wood, of Stratford, Ont, "was cnred
of cramps in the legs by wearing Allcock's
Porous Plasters. Mr. Wood says:
"Some three months ago I was taken very
sick with severe pain m the small of my back
over the kidneys. Tne pain was excruciating.
I applied an Allcock's Porout Plaster over the
affected region and had relief almost within an
hour. At the same time, in conjunction with
this trouble. I had very great nervous disturb
ance, affecting my legs with cramps so I conld
scarcely sleep. Meeting with snch success with
my back I applied a plaster under the knee on
each leg, and In three days was completely
cnred, and have never been troubled in either
way since." su

Process to Is Introduced
$200,000 CAPITAL TO BB IHYESTED
Mr. Charles Spannagel, of Berlin, Ger
many, is now in the city negotiating for the
Introduction into this oountry of the manu
facture of a cement, of different chemical
constituents, but the same In effect to Port
land cement which is now wholly imported
from Germany and England. Dr. Ludwig
Preu&sner, a member, of the, Geological
Society of Berlin, is expected here from the
latter place next Tuesday to work in con
nection with Mr. Spannagel. Dr. Preuss
ner Is a practical chemist, who has discov

out of common limestone, clay and some
other constituents obtainable many places in
WHY THEY CAME HnHEB.
When fold by Mr. Spannagel qf the pros
pect lor the new cement and the great de
mand for it in America, which country had
been visited before by the informant, Mr.
Preussner decided to visit this country and
Mr. Spannagel came over ahead of him in
his interests. .
Mr. Spannagel said he had visited St.
Louis, Indianapolis and various other cities
in different parts of the United States, but
found in no place the natural resources so
well adapted to its manufacture as in Pitts
burg. Several local capitalists have already sig
nified their intention of joining in the en
terprise and it is the purpose to establish a
cement works as soon as possible near Pitts
burg with a capitalization of abont 5200,000.
An exact location has not been decided on
yet, bnt it will be within a short distance of
The limestone, clay and other ingredients
nsed in its manufacture are found in abun
dance in and about Pittsburg, and
THE CHEAP ITTEIi
will make it possible to manufacture it very
cheap. Dr. Preussner will arrive Tuesday
and make a close analysis of the materials
at different points, and the location will be
decided on accordingly.
It is estimated that the cement can be
easily manufactured for $1 SO per barrel,
while the Portland cement, which has to be
imported, costs $3. The duty, ocean and
inland freight on the latter cost about $1 per
barrel. There is now 2,000,000 barrels of
cement" imported into the United States, so
there seems to be no danger of a market,
and should the new departure prove a suc
cess in every way the saving to builders
will amount up into the millions.
The process will be patented as soon as
possible, and it is proposed to enlarge the
works or establish others as soon as its man
ufacture is introduced into this country.
A WOMAN PHYSICIAN ARRESTED.
Charged With Malpractice nod tho Killing
of Hospital Patients.
rSFXCni. TELXOBAM TO Till DISPATCH.l
Brooklyn, June 1. The Kings county
grand jury for a week or more has been in
vestigating the management of the "Women's
Hospital on Greene and Sumner avenues.
It not only brought in indictments against
Mrs. Dr. Mary Ann Dixon Jones, and her
son, Df. Charles Dixon Jones, who are in
charge of the hospital, for manslaughter in
the seconddegree, bntrecommended District
Attorney Bidgway to take immediate steps
to have the charter of the hospital revoked
on the ground that the transactions in that
institution are a disgrace to the city.
The charges against Mrs. Jones and her
son are based on the oirenmstances attend'
ing the deaths of Ida 1. Hunt, last Febru
ary and of Sarah T. Bates in June last, after
they bad been under treatment at the hos
pital. In the case of Mrs. Hunt it is averred
that an unnecessary operation was per
formed and that the woman was hurried out
of the hospital on a, cold night while almost
in a dvinz condition. Mrs. Bates died at
'. the hospital, and it is alleged that the un
dertaker had been summoned ana tne aeatn
certificate made out for one honr at least be
fore breath had left her body. "While the
certificate assigned malignant blood poison
ing as reason ot death, the antopsy, it is
said, clearly showed it resulted from mal
practice. Mrs. Jones and her son were arrested and
arraigned before Judge Moon in the Court
of Sessions. Through their lawyer, Bichard
S. Newcomb, a plea of not guilty in each
case was entered and a demand made for a
speedy trial. Bail was-fixed at 57,600 and
55,000 respectively, and was furnished after
a delay of several hours. Mrs. Jones says
that the charges have been trumped up
against her by some neighbors who object
to the hospital as a detriment to the real
estate in the neighborhood.

space of time, persons of a billons habit are

DISTANCES IK ALASKA.
Ton Can Go West From Sitka Farther Than
East Withont Leayins; the United States.
Detroit Free Press.
"When I sat at my desk in Sitka," said
Governor Swineford, "I was further from
Attn Island, the westernmost part in Alas
ka, than I was from Portland, Me. This
may serve to give some idea of the prodig
ious distances of Alaska. But I can furnish
n more striking one. If the capital of the
United States was located in the center of
the United States that is to say, at a point
equidistant from Quaddyhead, Me., atfd
Attn Island, Alaska it' would be in the
Pacific ocean, some 600 miles north by west
of San Francisco."
It isindeed, an almost boundless empire
that Mr. Swine'ord has ceased to govern and
that Fred A. Maynard has lost. Few peo
ple appreciate the colossal size of the Alas
kan dominion of the United States. Even
prominent Dublic men are apt to regard it
as a little fringe ot the frozen zone, quite
unworthy of their attention. William S.
Holman once had this idea of Alaska. A
couple of years ago, when Governor Swine
ford was urging the House Committee on
Territories to report favorably on 'a bill to
give Alaska something more than a sem
blance of Territorial Government, Mr. Hol

Swineford was mad in a minute. He
promptly advised the great objector to go
and buy some primer geography, and He
never had the patience to discuss the matter
with him again.
It has .ong been said that the sun never
sets on the British Empire. But it is not
generally known that it is equally true that
the sun never sets on the domain of the
United States. It is shining on the Aleu
tian Inlands while it is the dead ot night on
Martffc's Vineyard. The United States laps
nearly half way around the world. It ex
tends from 67' west longitude to 169 east
longitude. Alaska has between 800,000 and
900,000 square miles of land surface, and a
great water area. 'It is nearly as large as
tne Uplted states east ol tne Mississippi.
Governor Swineford took a journey last
summer of more than 10,000 statute miles
without leaving his domain as Governor.
He went on the United States steamship

the Secretary of the Navy. The Journey oc

THE TRUE TAILOR SYSTEM
Why Not Draft Ladies' Garments the

They are drafted the same, but only a few

busy to look after their own interests, and
having been fooled, persuaded and deluded
so many times Into buying "pasteboard
charts," "models," "graded scales" and ma
chines called "tailor systems" of cutting of
some kind, that they have lost confidence in
all, good and bad, and only think of it.
"Who can blame them?" Not I. for to-dav
the same story is being told them by parties
in this city who are trying to sell them a
"pasteboard arrangement" and giving them
some English or French name to delude
Dressmakers should remember this and
saVe their money. The moment you buy
pieces of pasteboard filled full of holes, that
moment you are buying a chart. No mat
ter what name it is called Smith's, Brown's,
Clark's, English or French tailor systems,
they are all alike, for a "chart" is a paste
board arrangement. Now, if you want a

37 cents each, or $1 SO per dozen, but I
would much rathergive you a knowledge of
cutting the same as a tailor for $10. Some

Dr. "Woods has had a large practice in
this branch of his profession without any
public advertising, bnt as many who might
have been useful and ornate members of
society, fill untimely graves, whom he might
have cured by seasonable treatment and

felt it a dnty he owes to the afflicted to step
aside from the restrictions of so-called med

neglected class of diseases.
Many years ago Dr. Woods went through
