Somber oT learned Earanti Enrolled Amorc
Arrangements are now made for the expe
dition of American scientists who will go to
Africa to witnesj the great eclipse in De
cember. It will be fully equipped in every
respect. October 1 is set as the probable
date of departure.
fgrECIAX, TSLEORAM TO TIIE OtSPJLTCn.1
Washington-, Aucnst 29. Prof. David
P. Todd, of Amherst Colleje, is here mak
ing the final preparations for his expedition
to Africa to observe the total eclipse of the
sun on the 22d of December. It is still un
certain what vessel will convey the party to
the observation, and this makes it impossi
ble to decide just how many are going and
who they will be.
It is hoped that the new ship-of-war
Baltimore, which is undergoing her first
tests, will prove satifaciory and be placed
at the disposal of the expedition. Her size
will enable a large number of scientific
scholars to go along not simply astrono
mers, but naturalists, anthropologists,
ethnologists-andJihysicists, who can im
prove the opportumtjjto- collect specimens
and data in their several departments of re
search. As the Baltimore will have to make
a long sea cruise anyway, this will afford
. our Government a chance to kill two birds
Twith one stone.
ALL WILMS G TO GO.
In regard to the composition of his staff,
Prof. Todd is in correspondence with as
tronomical experts all over the country, as
well as with leading men in other scientific
walks. The disposition manifested by these
gentlemen is encouraging in the extreme.
Some of the brightest and best of them are
willing to make large personal sacrifices for
the sake of taking part in the expedition,
but few are in such circumstances as to be
-able to p:y their own expenses entirely.
The institutions with which they are
connected are willing to spare tbcm for a
season and allow their salaries to continue."
Their maintenance on the long trip, how
ever, will involve a considerable expense,
and Congress appropriated 5,000 for the
pnrposo of the eclipse only. It is hoped
that private liberality will supply another
fund of like amount, and efforts are now
making in New York to raise this money.
The party will sail from New York, it all
goes well, about the 1st of October. A
straight course will be laid to the Cape
Verde Islands, some 3,000 miles, and a brief
stop will probably be made at Si. Vincent.
Thence there will be another continuous
voyage to St. Paul De Loaudo, on the south
west coast of Africa, 250 miles below tbe
mouth of the Congo river. A railway now
building, and which is expected to be fin
ished by the time the observers arrive, will
carry them CO miles in a generally southeast
direction to Minima, in about the middle
of the path of the eclipse.
In case it proves impossible toga all the
way by rail, it is hoped to have a steam
launch or a local transport bolt, to carry the
. men and instruments uphe Quanza river to
their destination, hugeiojrthe north shore,
and thus keeping out of the clutches of the
"hostile natives who infest thecountry on the
other side of the stream. Indeed, it is the
fear of annoyance foom these savages that
.'r-'Jirevents the observation from being taken
on the coast, because the only district in the
path ot the eclipse is peopled with them.
- ?" A BAD TRADITION.
The only reluctance shown anvwhere to
accompanying the expedition is manifested
by a lew of the naval officers here who
stand a fair chance of being detailed for
this service. Their feeling is due to the bad
' name which naval tradition gives to St.
Paul De Loando, where tbe man-of-war
Hill make her headquarters while her
scientific passengers travel into the interior.
It seems that a number of years ago our
Government kept a squadron in the waters
thereabouts to co-operate with squadrons of
other civilized powers in the suppression of
the slave trade.
It was a most unattractive spot, to which
officers could not bear to be assigned, and
the anthorities of our navy acquired a habit
ol sending men there when it became neces
sary to discipline them. The Botany Bay
atmosphere has clung to the neighborhood
ever since, and its depressing associations
have certainly not been relieved by the cir
cumstances that any indulgence in dissipa
tion is liable to expose a man to a very ma
lignant local iorm of malarial fever, nhich
makes short work of its victim. The ob
servers who go to Muxima have little to
fear irom this source, as that town is near
iheedge of the fever belt.
The apparatus carried by the party will
he as elaborate as the accommodations on
shipboard will permit. A very important
part of it will be the instruments con
structed for observing the eclipse of last
Jtfew Year's Day in California, and lent by
the observatory of Harvard University. A
small outfit will come from Prof. Todd's
observatory at Amherst College, and some
pieces will be furnished by the Government
from its collection in Washington.
A JOINT AFFAIR.
It is expected that the American party
will meet at St. Paul de Loando. ST. Trou
Yelot, of the Pans Observatory, has applied
for a place in the American expedition, and
"if it is decided to grant his request he will
join the party probably at St. Vincent. As
Jar ns is known, no other Governments have
made any independent movements to secure
observations. The English will send an as
tronomer the Ilev. Pathcr Perry to Cay
enne on the northeast coast of South Amer
ica, where he will witness the eclipse about
two hours and a half earlier than the ob
servers at Muxima.
Scores of photographs will be taken of
tbe partial pbases of the eclipse, with very
'Jarge cameras, and these will add materially
to our knowledge of the motion of the moon,
find so help the cause of accurate naviga
tion; but most of the apparatus will be em
ployed during the total ecliDse, in investi
gating the corona, an appendage of the sun
visible only during totality. A full knowl
edg e of the corona is important in
the study of solar phvsics. Some of
the appan.tus will be specially de
signed for tests of a theory of the" solar
corona newly elaborated by Prof. P. H.
Bigelow.i and which appears to explain
many things about the corona not under
stood before. Prof. Bigelow will himself
pc one of the astronomers ot the expedition.
Prof. Todd and his staff will remain in
Africa for a week or two after the eclipse,
and then return home by the quickest route.

The Story of Romaics and Reran Ke-En-
octcd In Texas A Wild Beast Steals
and Nurses a Negro Child.
Sandy Point, Tex., August 29. Some
20 months ago a negro woman living on the
banks of tbe Brazos missed her 3-months-old
baby from the pallet where she had left
it lying during an absence of a fewminutes.
Search was made for the infant, but no
trace of it could be discovered, and the
whole affair was wrapped in profound mys
tery until a few days ago. A party
of gentlemen were riding through
a somewhat unfrequented portion of the
thick woods that border the river, when
they were startled by seeing a strange object
run across the road. Thinking at first sight
that it was a wild animal, several of the
party were about to fire on it, when the one
who had been nearest it called to them not
to shoot, but to ride it down instead. This
was done with difficulty for the underbrush
was thick, but at last the creature was over
taken in a dense copse. It was half run
ning, half leaping, first on all fours and
then nearly upright.
The gentlemen dismounted and attempted
to lay hands upon it, but ch ottering fright
fully and savagely biting and scratching it
broke away from them. They could see that
it had a human face, though the brown body
was covered with long, tangled hair, and the
nails of the feet and hands so long and
curved as to be claws. It ran with incredi
ble swiftness, getting over fallen trees and
dense masses of creepers at a rate that
obliged Its pursuers to exert themselves to
tbe utmost to keep it in view. It
finally ran into an immense oak tree that
lay uprooted in the ground and the hollow
trunk of which formed a yawning cavern.
By the dint of poking in the tree with
sticks the party succeeded in driving out
an old wolf, which immediately took to its
heels. It was not pursued, as it was not the
object sought This, too, was finally dis
lodged and lassoed with a lariat made of
hides. It bit and scratched so fiercely that
it was thoueht advisable not to apnroach it,
so it was half dragged, .half led home with
the lariat about its neck, howling and yelp
ing like a wolf.
The fact of the nesro woman's child hav
ing disappeared was well-known to all and
it was decided that this must be the child.
The old wolf had evidently stolen it and for
some reason adopted it as its own. The
mother declared that this conjecture was
correct, claiming that her child had had a
malformation of one ear which peculiarity
was found in the monster. It is kept tied
up in her cabin, suffering no one to lay
hands upon it, and is fed on raw meat, as it
reluses to touch any other food. The woman
has hopes that she may yet reawaken the
human in it, but in the meantime she is
reaping a harvest from the crowds who come
daily from all parts of the county to inspect
the strange creature.
AN OLD POINT EAISED AGAIN.
There Will be a Dlspnfe Over the Dyna
mite Crnlacr Vesuvius.
"Washington, August 29. It appears
to be probable that when the point of, settle
ment is reached between the Navy Depart
ment and the contractors for furnishing the
dynamite cruiser Vesuvius some intricate
legal questions will have to be disposed of.
Although built by the Cramp", the vessel
was contracted for by the Pneumatic Dyna
mite Gun Company, which sublet the con
tract. Before Secretary "Whitney retired he
accepted the vessel so far as speed, range
and accuracy of fire were concerned, but re
quired proof of rapidity of fire. This last
requirement has never been met owing to a
series of unfortunate accidents to the ma
chinery. It is understood, however, that the con
tractors will claim that the vessel was ac
cepted, and that they are thus relieved from
the heavy penalties (now 200 a day) which
would be due if it should be held that the
Government has never accepted the "vessel.
A point resembline this was made early in
Secretary Whitney's administration respect
ing one of the Roach vessels which had been
accepted by his predecessor, but Secretary
Whitney held that the vessel had sot been

ISrECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE BISFATCII.I
Kansas City, August 29. E. "W.
Thomas, of New Yort, arrived in tbe city
to-night. Sir. Thomas is the agent of an
English syndicate, of which the Barings
and the Lubbocks are the head, and which
Sir. Thomas says will invest more money in
this country than is being put in breweries.
The investments will include all sorts of
Western mortgages, except listed mortgages.
The syndicate will be fully organized by
November 1 next and expects to place
58,000,000 the following year. Each suc
ceeding vcar $15,000,000 will be invested by
the Englishmen in the West. Mr. Thomas'
visit to the West at this time is to ascertain
how much mortgage papers can be secured.
He will remain here three days, going from
here to Denver, and thence to Washington
Territory, and coming back east via St.
Paul and Minneapolis. Mr. Thomas says
to insure safety all paper bought by the
syndicate will first be passed upon by a
board of auditors in New York. He says
they will bay everything they can get in
the wiy ot a mortgage on Kansas realty.

israelii, txlxobah to the dispatch.!
New Yobk, August 29. There was a
fatnily row up in Harlem to-day, in which
the late anti-Chinese bill was the main
factor "and Ah Chung, a young and pros
perous laundryman.was the principal. Five
years ago Chung, then a mere boy of 14,
was betrothed to tho pretty 13-year-old
daughter of a well-to-do neighbor in China.
Ah Chung told his prospective bride's rela-.
tives that he was going to visit his father,
who was then in San Francisco keeping a
big laundry, and that he would 'return in
two or three years to get married. Soon
after Chung's arrival at the Golden Gate
his father sold out his washing business and
the two came to New York, where they
started a laundry on Third avenue, near
Seventy-second street.and recently removed
up further in Harlem, between Eightieth
and Ninetieth streets, where the father and
son are making a good living.
THEY WANT THEIB BOY.
In the meantime, Chung's father-in-law
and mother-in-law-in China are kicking
fiercely because Chung has not kept his
promise of becoming their actual son-in-law.
Besides, the daughter, who is now a
full crown and handsome young lady,
threatens dire vengeance on both families
by committing self-destruction unless her
early-betrothed mate should come over to
her and apologize by becoming her husband
The crisis arrived this evening, when an
important messenger, in the person of the
anxious-to-get-married-girl's uncle, who is
also a" New York laundryman, appeared at
Ah Chung's washhouse. He held in his
hand a voluminous document, said to be an
ultimatum from the irate Chinese father-in-law
at Canton. It contained the important
information that Ah Chunc must either go
to China immediately or withdraw his claim
to the yonng woman in question and pay
damages to the tune of the price of several
landrils for keeping her waiting for him so
DOESN'T WANT TO GO.
Chung's old father was willing to let his

Unhappily, this is not Hhe only case in
which Chinamen are in this peculiar pre
dicament, owing to the new law against
them. There are scores, It not hundreds, of
young Chinamen now in New York who
are anxious' to go home to-get married to
their youthful spouses, but for fear of not
being able to come back they take their
chances of losing their brides rather than
to give up the chance of living
in America, where they say it is
not onlv a better place to make a
living, but they rather enjoy the peculiar I

DtntHAir, N. C, August 29. A roman

C, Female college, a few days ago. Ed
Heilig, of Mt. Pleasant. N. C, was a suitor
for the hand of Miss Mattie Kindley, of the
same place, and objections seemed to have
been interposed by the young lady's parents,
who dispatched their daughter off to the
boarding school, hoping to break off the
attachment Young Heilig went to Greens

girl's window and In the darkness of the
night carried' her off and took her to Salis

Tbe last Legislature of this State granted
this institution special police powers for the
preventing of such disturbances and making
it a misdemeanor to enter the grounds for
the purpose of interfering with or inducing

a Westside woman whose ticket in a lottery
company is about to be confiscated by tbe
State, seems to be unknown to Frank W.
Bawlson and his mother, Mrs. Bowena
Bawlson. This mornings they secured an
injunction from Judge Jamieson restraining
. Wells, Fargo & Co. from paying f 10,000
derived from a Mexican lottery to J aeon
Baar. Bawlson is the son and Mrs. Bawl
son is the widow of Eugene Bawlson, of
Hillsdale, Mich. Eugene Bawlson bought
ticket 23,902 in the Loteria Dela Bcnefioi
enca Publica of Mexico. The ticket drew
110,000 August 11.
A notification was sent by the lottery in
the City of Mexico by mail to Bawlson in
forming him that he held the lucky num
ber, but before it reached him Bawlson
died. His death occurred August 16. It
is charged that tbe notification tell into the
hands ol Jacob Baar, who had possession of
Eugene Bawlson's papers. Baar sent the
ticket to Wells, Fargo & Co., who collected
the money and were about to pay it over to
Baar whenT enjoined by the Superior Court.
Mrs. Bawlson lives in Hillsdale, and Frank
W. Bawlson lives Jn St Paul. They noti
