Russell Harrison has suddenly become a
very distinguished man. He has dined
with the Queen and slept at Windsor Castle
one night; has taken luncheon with the
Prince of Wales and his family at Marl
borough House, and is spending to-day with
' the Marquis of Salisbury, at Hatfield
House, in Hertfordshire.
These lofty honors have much enhanced
the popularity of the son of the administra
tion among his countrymen over here, as
anyone would realize who saw simple Bo
publicans rush up in the hotel corridors to
shake the hand that grasped that of His

tor he has been pursued relentlessly by the
reporters of iKe metropolis, who desire to
knowhis opinion of the royal family, and
obtain his views as to the domestic economy
of the imperial household.
"When seen by your correspondent this
afternoon he was engaged in packing neck
ties, silk under clothing, silver-mounted
perfume bottles and monogramed tooth
brushes into a series of beautiful pew Rus

for the Prime Minister's country seat, where
lie spends the night.
Advised Not to Talk.
Harrison said that court etiquette forbade
his going into details concerning his recep
tion at "Windsor Castle and Marlborough
House, and Minister Lincoln, who was with
him during his visits, had advised him not
to talk about them. Harrison did not hesi
tate to say, however, that he was treated
with the utmost courtesy; that the royal
cuisine, while differing from that of his
home in Indianapolis, was fine, and that the

Harrison goes to Paris, after taking leave
of the Marquis of Salisbury and his family
on Monday, and will probably be honored
there as here. One of his regrets at leaving
London so soon lies in the circumstance
that he had been compelled to decline an
invitation from the Lord Mayor and Lady
Mayoress to meet Her Majesty's Ministers
at dinner next "Wednesday.
John Jnrrett Given a Whirl.
It would be interesting to know, in view
of young Harrison's enthusiastic reception
over here, whether he has, by any chance,
been indulging in such twaddle as John
Jarrett, of Pittsburg, the new Consul at
Birmingham, is credited with" in the
Birmingham Times. Jarrett starts off by
saying that President Harrison's last in
structions to him before he left America
were to seize every opportunity of removing
any impressions that Americans dislike
England, or wish to be on other than the
most cordial terms with her. These in
structions so fully accorded with his own
views that he had the greatest pleasure pos
I sible in repeating them.
"Of course." he continued, "I know some
of our people are very fond, at election
times, of performing the operation known as
Twisting the Lion's Tall.
"Mr. Cleveland and the Democrats did it
pretty freely in the last election, but it
made their defeat all the more crushing.
The Sackville incident, as I suppose
everybody over here knows very well now,
was only an election trick, and a very
shabby and stupid one, too. There is not a
respectable American in the States that
does not sincerely regret the incident, and,"
with a meaning smile, "I should think those
responsible for the episode are more sorry
than anyone else."
If Mr. Jarrett is fairly qucted, he may
fearlessly claim to be the most thoroughly
rounded specimen of the driveling idiot
ever sent to attend to the business of the
"United States in this country, and that
is saying a great deal. Lord Salisbury, at
the Mansion House'dinner, declared that

The Shah of Persia Very Tired of Globe
Trottlnn A Nerve Storm Prom Which
lie Suffered lie Is Credited
With a Smart Saying.
IBY CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.!
London, July 20. The Shah still goes
on sightseeing, though his unlucky Majesty
is getting very tired of it, goes to sleep more
and more, misses his engagements, and oc
casionally protests against being taken away
from something that he likes, as Lake Lo
mond, to go somewhere else, to a place that
bores him. He does not want to go to Glas
gow, or to stay at other places, but, as he is
a globe trotter, he is bound to globe-trot.
Although he is King, and keeps going
ahead, the Shah has just had a very serious
nerve storm, and some of his attendants
have had a much worse one. Four of these
dark Persian gentlemen are entrusted with
the care of the black leather bag which con
tains about 55,000,000 worth of the Shah's
best jewels. The fact has transpired that
when the Shah arrived at Hatfield, Lord
Salisbury's place, the bag of jewels was
missing, and not one of the four unlucky
attendants could find it
A Most Lucky Find.
A special train wan sent back to London,
and after a long hunt, the bag of diamonds,
rubies, etc., was found in the royal stables
in the boot of the drag which carried the
Shah's luggage to the railroad station a
wonderful opportunity for London's pro
When the four Persians entrusted with
the jewels recovered the bag they actually
kissed it and embraced it, and carried it off
to the Shah, all holding on- to it together.
Their fate on returning to Persia, if they
had lost these jewels, is not pleasant to con
template, but very easy to guess.
Confidence in the Shah's moral character
is becoming more and more undermined. It
is well known that he brought with him one
ot the young Circassian girls who he had
received as a present from his Minister in
Constantinople, and this was thought
Quito Moderate on His Parr,
and did not call forth any special outcry
from the British matron; but now it is
rumored that beside this Circassian, to which
he contesses, the Shah has cot one or two
specimens from the home harem going about
with him, dressed up in Persian men's
clothes. This information, however, is not
The Shah apparently does not consider a
long list of wives altogether without its un
pleasant points, and I have it as a fact from
the Grand Old Man's son, Herbert Glad
stone, that tbe Shah actually did say, when
informed that the Grand Old Man was on
the point of celebrating his golden wedding,
that he was not certain but that it was bet
ter to live 50 years with one woman than
one with 50 women. That remark, by the
way, is not original with the Shah, but per
haps he may have reinvented it.
In reply to a question asked by Lord
Wolseley the Shah has said that the things
which pleased him most in England were
the flowers and the conjuring hardly what
one wonld expect from a potentate from the
East, where flowers and conjuring, especial
ly the latter, are commonly supposed to

London, July 20. Lord Fife and Prin

wrangle over her dowry, are going on with
their preparations for the wedding next

reputation of caring little for jewelry,

jewelry, to Marlborough House, and the

MOLTEN METAL E0LLED.
A Wonderful Process That May Slake
Kails 810 a.Ton Cheaper and Revo
lutionize Iron and Steel Mnnufac
tare Invented by Chicago-
ans Economy and -
Chicago, July 20. A firm in this city
engaged in the manufacture of tin cans and
japanned ware has patented an invention
which competent judges say will revolu
tionize the iron and steel industry of the
world. Patents have been secured in the
leading countries of the world. It is, in
brief, a process by which molten metal may
be rolled into any desired shape, thus saving
all intermediate processes. It was invented
originally to roll molten solder into thin
plates, but the process is pronounced by ex
perts to be equally applicable to iron and
steel in its various forms of plates,stractural
iron and rails.
It is believed that the cost of manufactur
ing steel rails can ba reduced to the extent
of $10 per ton, and that thin iron plates for
tinning can be made much below the cost of
production of tin plates in Wales, thus
making a new industry in this country.
The molten metal is passed between .rollers,
which is chilled as it passes the rollers,
being kept cool by a stream of water which
passes through them.
Another advantage is that iron and steel
so rolled will be much more even and
closer in texture than that made by present
methods, being free from the airholes which
result from the intermediate processes.

Chicago, July 20. The meeting "which

absence of several Of the representatives of
important lines adjourned until Monday
next. The association has just now reached
the critical point of its existence, both the
Southern and Northern Pacific roads hav

they persist iu their intentions it would be
folly to attempt to continue the association.
Efforts will be made to persuade them to
reconsider their action, and in the case of
the Northern Pacific there is' hope of suc
cess. Traffic Manager Hannaford said to-day
that he thought the matter would be ami
cably adjusted so far as his road is con
cerned. But the grievance ot the Southern
Pacific is the competition of the Canadian
Pacific. It claims that the unreasonable
differentials allowed that road, coupled with
its freedom from legal restrictions, has en
abled it to absorb the bulk of the Pacific
coast traffic and the American lines are
powerless to meet the competition while re
maining members, of the association.
Strangely enough, the representatives of the
Canadian Pacific are in attendance asking a
still further differential on San Francisco
traffic. So the prospect for adjustment of
existing difficulties is not bright,

the character of those who hare already an

prominent leaders of the party earing even
to attend the convention. Collector
of Internal Revenue David Martin, who is

severely simple and unostentatious as was
thelife of the dead priest The bier was a
plain one, the draperies simple, and
hut three candles burned on each
side of the coffin. The body was
elad in full vestments, and in tbe hands
were placed a golden chalice and paton.
The main altar, candelebra and ornaments
were shrouded in the habiliments of mourn
ing, and though the solemn services did not
begin till o'clock, for a half hour preced
ing the organ pealed forth mournful volun
taries. Prior To the divine office for the dead,
people for at least two hours poured into the
Cathedral, and with saddened faces passed
around the caskif, looking for the last time
upon the famijiar features of the church's
eminent theologian and scholar. At 9:30
o'clocka long procession of priests, superiors
of religious orders, vicars general, bishops
and archbishops entered the sanctuary and

Uniontown, July 20. Around the
tented city of Camp Rippey, where the offi
cers and members of the Eighteenth Regi
ment are located, there hang many his
toric traditions and reminiscences. To-day
the officers of the regiment put in most of
the time, when not otherwise engaged, dis
cussing tha many historical events with
which the residents of Uniontown are fa
miliar. In the first place, the camp, as has been
stated in The Disfaxcu, is named in
honor of Colonel Oliver H. Rippey,
the famous commander of the
old Sixty-first Pennsylvania Vol
unteers. Colonel Rippey was killed
at the battle of Fair Oaks. His death was
the result bf his zeal and enthusiasm to help
to save his country. One day while push
ing h'i3 regiment up to the front to partici
pate in a lively skirmish which was going
on between tbe Union and Confederate
forces, he come to a crossroad, where he met
another regiment headed toward the fight.
Ane iaiter recimenfc wu reguiariy euusieu,
and its commander did not have a lofty idea
of volunteer officers. A conflict occurred
between the two officers as to who had the
right of line. Cqlonel Rippey recognized
the fact that as volunteers he should
give way to the other regiment, but in his
eagerness to get to the front, did not par
much attention to the others. After numer
ous commands from the other officer to
oblique his regiment into the field and allow
the others the right of way on the road, he
did so. As soon as he got his men over the
fence, a race between the two regiments
then began to see who would get to the front
first. Colonel Rippey "got there" and in
less than 20 minutes from the time of the
parley with his brother officer, a rebel sharp
shooter's bullet struck him and he was
carried from the field dead,
WHERE BBADDOCK BESTED.
The quarters of Colonel Smith, 'Com
mander of the Eighteenth, are right on the
spot where General Braddock made his
stopping place while on his famous march
through this section of the country and
which finally terminated in his death. He
remained in the neighborhood foriour days,
and the first settlers of Uniontown used to
point it out, as the present .residents-now.do

gentlemen planted the pines, around his

their children how General Braddock re
fused the advice of George Washington in
regard to the Indians while on his march
westward, and was too proud to adopt their
underhand tactics. For not doing this he
was ambusned and nis men outcnered.
The immediate vicinity where the camp
is located is where the notorious Sullivan
boys, or McClellandtown gang, organized
themselves into a band, and committed
their first crime within pistol shot of head
quarters. They robbed the paymaster of
the McClure Coke Works of 56,000, and
then started on their seven years of crime.

Outside of the regular routine of camp
work to-day there were few matters of in

the first thing that greeted them was the
same old rain which had been pouring
down at intervals all last night.

After breakfast large squads were organ
ized and put to work gathering and sweep
ing up all the leaves, brush, etc., which
lay about the camp. In a few days there
will hardly be a loose blade of grass or twig
lying on the smooth, level ground. When
the latter is thoroughly dried it will be
hard to find cleaner streets in any encamp
ment in the United States.
After the camp had been cleaned this
morning a guard mount was held in the
large field to the left of headquarters. It is
the intention 'to have these mounts end with'
a skirmish drill.
The first military visitor to the camp was
Colonel Chambus McKibbin, of Pittsburg,
who was Colonel Smith's predecesr. He
came in yesterday, and this morning the
camp was visited by Mrs. McKibbin
and "the daughter of the regiment"
Marian, the Colonel's 4-year-old bright-eyed,
little girl. The title of Sanreant-Major has
been conferred upon her by Colonel Smith.
A pleasant surprise was given Lieutenant
Colonel Frank I. Rutledge at noon to-dav.
'While the staff officers were trying to make
up lost time on very large-sized appetites,
Colonel Smith pounded on the table with
his knife and ordered "silence." The few
visitors who were net in the scheme, thought
something dreadful was about to happen,
when the Colonel pulled from his pocket
a pair of gold-plated, regulation spurs
which he presented to Colonel Rutledge on
behalf of his brother officers." It was the
intention at first to present a pair to Colonel
Smith, but the gallant old commander has
a pair he carried while doing yeoman service
in the Fifteenth Pennsylvania Cavalry
during the war, and he would not part with
them under any consideration. The new
spurs are of a new pattern which was
adopted but six months ago. Colonel Rut
ledge thanked the donors, and then gave
the best appreciation he could of the gift by

CAMP HOSPITAL AND KITCHENS. ,
Up to 6 o'clock 'to-night there has been
but one patient injhe hospital and this case
was not serious. The hospital is one of the
cosiest little retreats to be found in the
camp. It is on the highest point of ground

upon the parade ground, livery movement

The hospital is in charge of Dr.Brumbaugh,

who commanded the Eighty-fifth Pennsyl

the same as that of the Eighteenth.
SUNDAY IN THE CAMP.
To-morrow a large crowd of visitors are
expected on the Baltimore and Ohio road.
Immediately after guard mount Colonel
Smith will go on his first inspection of
quarters. This will consist of a thorough
inspection of the camp and special atten
tion will he given to the tents of
the men. At 1 o'clock divine
service will be held by Chaplain
J. L. Milligan. This will consist of an out
door prayer meeting, with a few words of
an address from the chaplain. The address
is generally upon the life and duties of a
soldier. Vocal music will be rendered at
the service by the Regimental quartet. In
the evening a dress parade will be held.
Some little dissatisfaction has arisen over
the fact of meagre facilities for communi
cation with Pittsburg. Contrary to custom
there is no telegraph office in the camp, and
the nearest one is ''nearly two miles away.
A telephone has been run into the camp,
but after one gets through sending a mes
sage, his langs are in good condition to do
business as a fog horn. Two mails are re
ceived daily at headquarters.
The new regimental hand cave its first
concert to-night. The band is composed of
50 of the best musicians In Pittsourg, and
will hereafter be known as the Eighteenth
Regiment Band. Frank McKelvey, the
drum major, has secured new uniforms for
the men, and the boys of the regiment are
rerv proud of their musicians.
The veteran corps has been organized at
the camp wltn Colonel JMcilibolen as com
mander. The corps is composed of honorary
officers who do not tro to camp for work.
For this reason Colonel Smith and his staff
are barred from membership.

Washington, July 20. The Star this
afternoon prints an interview with Mrs.
Harrison, which quotes her as saying that
the insufficiency of room in the White
House has become a matter i of very serious
inconvenience. Mrs. Harrison says that al
though the household of the President
is not the lartrest ever domesti
cated in the official home of
the Chief Magistrate, the encroach
ments of official requirements of late years
upon the apartments used for family pur
poses, has reached a point where "relief has
become absolutely necessary. Even the
library has been taken up for office busi
ness, and the Cabinet room now serves the
double purpose of public ante-room for
Senators and others admitted without cards,
as well as the place for the meeting of the
President and bis advisers. In speaking of
this subject Mrs. Harrison continued:
"We are here foriour years. I do notlook
beyond that, as many things may occur in
that time, but I am very anxious to sea the
family of the President provided for prop
erly, and while I am here I hope to be able
to get the present building put into good
condition. Very few people understand to
what straits the President's family has been
put to at times for lack of accommodations.
Really, there are only five sleeping apart
ments, and there is no feeling of privacy."
Mrs. Harrison says that the idea of mak
ing an extension to the executive mansion
on the west side would not involve any loss
on account of the rcmova 1 of the present
conservatories. The extension would ena
ble tbe President's family to have a private
home where their friends can be received

recent murder in Whitechapel illustrates
the capacity of mankind to get used to al

often enough. Not nearly the usual ex

End, at least, do so in a dull, apathetic sort
of way, as a theme that has been already
discussed. No one has even had energy to
get up a new theory of any importance.
This lack of interest is partly due to the
fact that the Londoners are beginning to
look upon the Whitechapel murders as part
of the routine of East End life, but even
more, perhaps, to the wide impression that
this woman-killer is not the original White-

who turned against Gladstone and took
office with the Tories, is making a special

Reliable statistics show that on an averaga

The word poor does not describe this army

the striking things
in her life, as given by him, are these:
Smoking and drinking gin were her two
luxuries; she used to borrow pipes of some
one, and other people occasionally gave her
gin. She was in the habit of staying out all
night when she lacked the few cents neces

whom she lived also walked about the
streets at night as an ordinary thing. She
worked very hard at charring for Hebrews,
