She Gorernment is urged to pay more at

islands. A wealthy woman, whose tether

this region. In one island the curious
practice of caging girls until they are mar
ried is practiced.

"Washington, July 9. A report just re
ceived from United States Consul Griffin,
of Sydney, Hew South Wales, urges upon
the United States greater attention to the
importance of the islands of Bismarck
Archipelago, because our commercial inter
ests there are larger than those of any other
country. One passage of his report savors
of the romantic
llrs. Emma E. Forsythe, a daughter ol
Mr. Jonas M. Coe, formerly Consul at Apia,
Samoa, and his wife, who was the daughter
j(,(ifa Samoan chieftain, owns a plantation of
120,000 acres, employs SO Europeans and
several hundred natives, owns several
Steamers and is building others, and con
ducts a business larger than the combined
business of all the civilized residents ot the
island of Ifew Britain. Mrs. Forsythe is
tow 36 years of age. She received her
education at Sydney and San Francisco.
Besides being highly accomplished she is
& lady of very prepossessing appearance and
of remarkable energy and intelligence. At
the time of her marriage she was acknowl
edged to be the most graceful and beautiful
Xromaa in the island. She made such an
impression upon Lord Pembroke that he
sketched her portrait at length in the char
acter of Coe in his work entitled "South Sea
A EEMAKKABLE 'WOMAN'.
Although married to an Englishman,
llrs. Forsythe never renounced her nation
ality Alter the death of her husband,
which occurred in the year 1872, she took
up her residence with her uncle, Mr. E. H.
Coe, in San Francisco, Cal., and at a later
period joined her father's family at Apia,
Samoan Islands. She rendered assistance
to her father in keeping the books ot the
She is quoted as an authority on native
languages and dialects, and during Consul
Griffin's term of office as Consul at Samoa
the, on various occasions, acted as his
amanuensis and interpreter, and translated
nearly all his correspondence with the
Samoan Government. She has always taken
great interest in the trade and commerce of
the South Sea Islands, ana is, perhaps,
better posted on the subject than any other
citizen of the United States residing south
of the equator.
In 1879 she removed to the island of New
Britain, and, having purchased lrom the
natives several large tracts of land there,
Ehe formed a partnership with Mr. Thomas
Farreil, and in the same year she established
One of the most extensive business enter
prises in the South Sea Islands under the
name of Thomas Farrell & Co., planters
and trading merchants.
A BIO FARM.
The headquarters of the firm were estab
lished at liaaluan, near one of their largest
plantations, which now includes 11,600
acres of the choicest land in New Britain,
on which are raised, among other products,
"vast quantities of cotton. Her property and
that of the firm within the Imperial Ger
inan protectorate is estimated at 120,000
acres, and that outside of the protectorate at
80,000 acres, makinc a total of 150,000 acres,
nearly all of the landed estate being owned
by Mrs. Forsvthe.
Consul Griffin says in conclusion: "Mrs.
Forsythe rendered very effective aid to me
n the preliminary steps which secured to
the United States for a period of ten years
the use of the harbor ot Pago Pago as a
coaling station, and not long since she
Jnade an offer to the American Government
of 20 acres of ground on her own property
in the Island of Malnlu for another coaling
Elation. The Island of Malnlu is outside of
the German protectorate, and as no nation
las as yet set up a claim to it, she is qnite
anxious that her offer shall be accepted."
In another part of his report Consul
Griffin tells of a remarkable custom of the
inhabitants of New Britain as follows:
The inhabitants, it is said by "Wallace,
have a peculiar custom of
confining their girls
In capes until they are old enough to be
Onamed. This custom is said to be peculiar
'jto the people or New Britain. The cages
faro made of twigs of the palm tree, and the
J,-ds are put into them when only 2 or 3
Jpreaxs- of age. The Bev. George Brown es
mlablished a "Weileyan mission in New
KBritain in 1876, and I learn from
9him that these cages are built in
pide of the houses, and that the
Tglzlt are never allowed to leave the house
under any circumstances. The houses are
closely fenced in with a sort of wicker work
Jtnade of reeds. Ventilation under the cir
cumstances is rendered very difficult. The
feirls are said to grow up strong and health
Sul in spite of these disadvantages."
j The Bismarck archipelago consists of two
large islands, New Britain and New In
land, and a number of smaller ones, begin
ning at the equator and extending to the
8th degree of south latitude and about the
248th degree of west longitude.

"Washington, July 9. Commissioner
SCanner returned from his "Western trip to
day, and occupied his desk at the Pension
Bureau. He would not say whether the
changes in the medical division are to stop
where they left off yesterday. "I was
away," eaid the Commissioner, "and
fco cannot be responsible for the re
movals, but I want to call attention to
the fact that 17 of the 22 doctors employed
!n the medical division were appointed by
he last administration. I want to say an
other thing, that I haven't discharged any
ild soldiers on account of their Democratic
V The medical division was all torn up to
day, in its mind, not knowing where the ax
trill tall next, and all because three doctors
were dismissed yesterday. Two were Dem
ocrats, and one, a Republican, insists he
was dismissed because he has been too lib
eral in rerating pensions.
An Allegheny Man Geta There.
rsrzciAi. txxxqhax to thz dispatch. J
Washington, July 0. T. "W. Weddell,
formerly of Versailles township, Allegheny
county, has been appointed confidential
secretary of the fifth auditor of the Treas
ury". Mr. "Weddell came here in 1882 and
held a position in the House of Representa
tives and since then has occupied various
offices. He was a valuable attache of the I
National Committee during the last cam-1
AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

IIU Visitors How One Deviation
Wan DUappalnted A Few
rsrsctAi. telzobax to Tins dispatch, t
Washington, July 9. Though it was
a sweltering day the President had mors
caller than usual, but only a few of them
were of national note. Most of them looked
very hot, and but one, a Mr. Parkinson, of
Washington Territory, had the independence
to try to be comfortable contrary to etiquette.
He is a fine looking man, and wore good
clothes, but he took off his coat, unbuttoned
his waistcoat, carried an umbrella and
sauntered through the grounds and into the
"White House as though he owned them.
He maintained this dishabille until he was
ushered into the library and then at leisure
put on his coat.
He wanted to tell the President how
offices shonld be distributed in the new
State of "Washington. The President finds
it very lonely at the "White House and the
hot weather makes him rather impatient of
the visits of office seekers, and he does not
always give just the sort of satisfaction that
is wanted. For instance, a Philadel
phia delegation was here yesterday, and
called with Representative Harmar on the
President in the interest of Mr. Alonzo
Shot well, of Philadelphia, for the office of
Railroad Commissioner. The party came
away from the White House professing that
they were sure of their man, and were as
tonished and chagrined this afternoon to
find that Horace A. Tavlor, of Wisconsin,
had captured this very desirable and hon
Indiana, which never gets anything, was
presented with two nice offices to-day,
Henry W. Diederich, a prominent German
American Republican, getting the Consul
ship at Iieipsio, and Thomas C. Menden
hall the superintendency of the Coast and
Geodic Survey. The President expects to
go to Deer Park Fridav. and will probably
not return until the middle of next week.
PROTECTING THE 0ISTEE.
A Steamer Fitted Ont to Destroy In Great
rSPECIAI. TELXQKAX TO THZ DtgrATCH.l
Washington, July 9. All lovers of
oysters will be delighted to learn the nature
of the Toyage on which the steamer Fish
Hawk, of the Fish Commission service,
started this afternoon. She sailed down
the Potomac equipped for battle against the
starfish, which is the great enemy of the
oyster, and therefore the enemy of all man
kind. Especially does the starfish make
war on the oyster which lives in the saltiest
of salt water. In the fresher water it does
Last year the floods on the New York and
New England shores rendered the water
near the coast so fresh that the starfish
almost abandoned those grounds, but this
year it has returned in great force and is
playing havoc with the king of bivalves.
Commissioner McDonald has devised a
plan for raking up and destroying the star
nsn, ana with this machinery the Irish
Hawk started for the salt water bays to-day.
A EABBI'S RASH ATTEMPT.
Weary of a Life of Poverty He Trien to
Cleveland, July 9. Rabbi David
Franke, a despondent,of No. 252 Broadway,
tried to jump over the Superior street via
duct draw at 9 o'clock yesterday. He
walked to the center of the drawbridge, and
with a hoarse cry of "Here goes life," be
gun climbing over. After a desperate
struggle a policeman succeeded in prevent
ing him from taking his own life, and he
was hurried to the station house. He says
he is a Russian, and until Sunday night
was rabbi and secretary of the Bo'ruckoel
Chesed, a small congregation of his country
men who have a synagogue in the upper
rooms of his house. His salary was in ar
rears, and on the motion of a member he was
instructed to write to headquarters in New
York lor aid. The President ol the congre
gation, instead of receiving the desired help,
received a sharp rebuke from New York by
mail, which angered him greatly. He
blamjd the rabbi for having sent a clumsily
worded epistle to headquarters and moved
his removal from the pastorate of the
Rabbi Franke was not popular with influ
ential members and the motion carried,
throwing him out of employment with six
weeks' salary and the rent of the synagogue
owing him. He has five small children and
a wife to support and says no member of his
family has tasted food for 48 hours. Mon
day morning, discouraged and hopeless, sick
with the cries of his hungiy children, the
rabbi attempted to end his life. Officer
Thomas went up to his house and says he
failed to find so much as a crust within it
He secured food for the family and reported
the facts at the station. The Infirmary De
partment will care for them until the father
secures work. He was allowed to go home
on promising to make no farther attempts to
A letter was found by his wife soon after
he left home, in which he bade his family a
sad farewell, saying that he could notendure
to have his ohildren cry for bread when they
awoke. He said he was better dead than
alive and referred despondently to hit trou
ble in the church.
The City uf Cleveland to Come Ont All
night After All.
Cleveland, July 9. If a fair price can
be obtained for Axworthy's property neither
the city of Cleveland nor the bondsmen
will lose a cent by the defalcation. At the
most the entire defalcation will not amonnt
tomore than 580,000, and Axworthy has
said that he will make good whatever re
mains unbalanced alter his property is dis
posed of. The city does not need the money.
By waiting affairs can be amicably settled,
the property can be disposed of at a fair
valuation, and it will be better for the city,
for the bondsmen and for Axworthy.

The cases of catarrh treated and enredby
the physicians ot the Catarrh and Dyspepsia
Institute at 323 Penn avenue, are usually those
of the most advanced stages,, and who have
spent years of time and much money treating
elsewhere, until by some friend or in reading
the papers they learn of the Catarrh and Dys
pepsia Institute, and that others have been
cured ot diseases similar to their own. The
physicians ot this institute refer with pride to
the many testimonials already published and
hundreds of others on file at their office, re
ceived from patients whom they
have cured of simple catarrh, ulcerative ca
tarrh and some cases where the lungs were
badly diseased. Dyspepsia, including ulcera
tion of the stomach and diseases of women.
The words of comment and praise received
concerning their treatment and cure of diseases
Peculiar to women are very encouraging. Mrs.
r. Crossley Is always present during office
hours to consult with ladies. "You will not
publish my plcturo or name in the paper, will
you?" is often asked. The portraits of patients
are never displayed In the papers, ana no testi
monial or. name of any patlsnt is published In
the papers without the full consent or wish of
"When is the best time to cure catarrhT" is
asked. In the summer, by all means, as In
cold weather with sudden changes of temper
ature, the patient is much more liable to colds,
thus retarding the progress of tho treatment.
Many children are badly afflicted with catarrh,
frequently developing into consumption at a
very early age. The crowds of men, women and
children that daily assemble at the parlors of
the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute is the best
evidence of the standing of these physicians
and their snecess in making cures. Remember

able Sue arestlonn on the Subject.
At the Madison Square Garden, New York,
recently, five women, for six days In succession,
rode over 100 miles each day upon bicycles, and
at the end of that time were well and strong.
This proves conclusively that women have
strength and endurance often equal to men.
Why, then, are they called a weak race! Be
cause tbey make little effort to secure strength
or retain it after It has been secured. Women
are pale, sallow, troubled with many weak
nesses, and whyf Because they do not observe
the laws of health and keep their bodies as they
should. Their blood becomes thin and beats
slowly. It should be stimulated to strong and
healthy action. Cosmetics will not do this, nos
trums cannot, but pure whiskey, taken as a
medicine, will. If the lady of society returning;
from a reception or shopping expedition will
use a little pure whiskey, Nature will be assist
ed so that instead of breaking down it will be
tided over until it can recuperate. If the
weary woman who is beset by work and cares
will do the same thing, she, too, will be helped.
Anything that assists nature helps bring health.
The Importance of using only pure whiskey
cannot be too strongly urged, but there Is little
good and pure whiskey to be had. The poly
safe one to take is Duffy's. It Is a Pure Malt
Whiskey, tree from all impurities, and has
been used by the most prominent men and
women In America for years. It Is recommend
ed by the leading physicians, chemists, clergy
men, and it merlu the great popularity it has.

Law, civilization and custom compel
man to wear Pants. The coat may be
discarded for convenience, some men,
less scrupulous, go a little further and
lay the vest aside during the hottest
hours of the day. But here the line is
drawn. No matter what the weather may
be the Pants survive. There are 150,000
men in this vicinity who wear Pants. To
them the srbject of Pants always is of
great interest This week, however, this
interest is intensified a thousand fold
We have often given our patrons some
truly marvelous bargains in Pants, but
the wonderful values we shall give them
during this sale are without precedent or
parallel Men of all classes and condi
tions in life capitalists, bankers, bro
kers, merchants, professional men, clerks,
mechanics, laborers, policemen, conduc
tors, railroad men, rier men all, all,
all are interested in tbis great and glori
ous Pant Sale. But we will let our
figures talk for us. Read them carefully.
Here they are:
The Pants we offer at this price actually cost more to
make. They are none of your "cheap, shoddy"
goods, but fairly good qualities, well made and
sewed. The patterns are light, medium and dark,
and the sizes range from the smallest to the largest.
This price will take choice from several
piles of Men's Cassimere, Cheviot and
Worsted Pants, in stripes, checks, plaids
and mixtures. They're just the thing for
"after work" and are equal to any that would cost you $2 25 elsewhere.
This price entitles you to your choice from over 1,000
pairs of neat Business and Dress Pants, made of stylish
Cassimeres, Corkscrews and Cheviots, light and dark
patterns, and every pair worth not less than S3. We have
all sizes, too, and can fit any man, tall or short, fat or slim.
Think of it! Genuine tailor-made Pantaloons for S3.
This peerless offer will be good all this week, and you
can take your choice from about 1,500 pairs, each one
guaranteed to be strictly all wool. Indeed, some of the
materials are of our own importation, and are quite equal to anything
shown by first-class merchant tailors.
