Wilkes J17. The appearance of the daughter
of Almont, Jr, was the signal for a loud shout

favor to cither. Harry got a lead ol a nose,
but he lost it and took Belle's dust to the -wire.
Neither made a break. At the eighth the mare
was three-quarters of a length in the lead and
going easily. At tho quarter there was no
change, but between there and the half Harry
Wilkes lessened the space of daylight between
himself and the mare. Coming up the hill it
was neck and neck, but in the stretch Andrew
let the mare out and she won the heat and race
in a jog. Harry Wilkes was under the whip in
the finish, but ho was no match to-day for
Belle. Time, S3, 1:06 1: 2i

Boston, October 11. The Traveller
prints, under date of Seoul, Korea, Septem
ber 3, a letter from Mrs. Hattie G. Heron,
wife of Dr. Heron, of Tennessee, who was
reported to have been sentenced to death by
the King of Korea for teaching Christianity.
Mrs. Heron says she has just passed through
a long and dangerous illness, which
has left her a mere ghost of her former self.
She asserts that the King of Korea wonld
not do what has been charged against him,
He is a man of great strength of character,
kindness of heart and noble ambitions. More
over, the King and Queen have been most
cordial and generous in their personal treat
ment of Dr. Heron and myself. They will do
all in their power to protect us. Our only
danger Is from the ignorant and superstitious
lower classes, who, if aroused, might kill us
before the King could rescue us from them.
Bnt as Dr. Heron has with his own bands
treated about 30,000 sick Koreans, who are very
grateful to him. it is not likely that they will
rise up against him or .his family, whatever
they may do to others.
Mrs. Heron recites several incidents to show
their friendly relations with the royal family,
and concludes her interesting letter as follows:
"Let me say positively that Dr. Heron and I
are not now preaching or teaching Christianity
except by an example which we earnestly pray
may be worthy of the name of Christian. The
laws of the land forbid it. and through the
United States Minister abont a year ago the
American missionaries were absolutely for-.
uiuue-u w Leacu reiiiun; uui. wo lung lur bus
time when our treaty shall be revised and free
dom of religion allowed. Until that time we are
doing all in our power to gain the confidence
and respect of the people, with what success
you may judge from my letter."

THE LEAGUE'S PLANS.
President Day Sara That tho Rales Will be
New York, October 11. There is no doubt
that the League is now ready to concede any
thing in reason that they may ask. When
President Day was asked abont the matter yes
terday, he said that he had no doubt that the
Brotherhood bad made some move, but that it
would not come to anything.
"The players," said he, "may, of course,
have some fault to find with the present rules,
and, for my part, I think that there can be one
or two changes made that would be beneficial
to all. The classification rnle. if lived up to,
would be a good thing, but as it is, it can be
dropped and neyer missed. In the case of
Bowo and White, and similar cases, I don't
think that it was right. No man should be
compelled to play with a club that be did not
want to join, and the rule was never made with
the idea of sheltering such an evil. It is one of
the things that has crept into tho rules that
were never intended."
There Is no donbt that the League is willing
to do what it can for harmony, notwithstand
ing that some of the managers are in for fight

that wo want a share in the purchase money."
Mr. Kecfe said that the Brotherhood would
hold a meeting before tbe League meets and
would probably appoint a committee with fall
power, which would appear before the League
at its meeting to find out what It intends to do
for the players. When asked if the Brother

be said: "You bad better wait until the League

rSPECI.lL TELIOEA1I TO TUX DISPATCH. 1
Trenton, N. J., October 11. The Dis
patch correspondent has succeeded in get
ting an interview with Mrs. Eva Hamilton
through a series of written questions sent to
her, sufficient space being allowed beneath
each qnery to allow her to answer. These
answers are in her own handwriting and
show considerable care in their composition.
The handwriting is plain, showing no signs
of nervousness or agitation. The first of the
series of written questions sent to Mrs. Ham
ilton was: "What do yon think of your
sentence?" In reply she wrote:
This whole case has been a cruel plot I do
not blame my husband for tho part he has
played in it. He has been compelled to do it
by his family and friends. I think he is very
sorry for me, and ho alone can speak and tell
how I have been wronged in this matter.
Will you employ counsel to look after your
interests in the divorce proceedings Instituted
by Mr. Ray Hamilton?
I shall, if I can get a good lawyer to take
charge of it for mo. That charge is all false
and Mr. Hamilton knows that if I was at liberty
I could prove that Beatrice is my child, and I
will do this for ber sake as soon as I have mv
liberty. That is why I was sent here, so I
could not defend myself.
What do you now think of the action of your
lawyer in placing you on the witness stand and
his couduct in the whole caseT
1 think and know that he has been working
for Mr. Hamilton and not for me; I always did
think so, but they took everything I had. They
could not allow me to have my own money, to
go to my baby, and they would not let me nave
any money to do anything with.
Is there any statement you would like made
public? If so, write it. Each and 'every
answer you may make to these questions will
be published just as you may write them.
I wish this published: Mrs, Swinton, ber son,
Joshua Mann, and a grandchild, Carrie Swin
ton, I have known some six or seven years. I
bave as good as supported tbe whole family all
this time, and since they found out that I was
married to Mr. Hamilton they have threatened
money out of me all tbe time. A thousand dol
lars at a time was nothing. I could explain the
cause for this action on Mr. Hamilton's part,
but will not at present I do not want to blame
Mr. Hamilton too much, because, as I bave
said, it is his friends, but he ought to be a man
and do his duty to his family. He will regret
when it is too late. I ask the public to help me
out of here and give me a chance to defend my
child and myself. This is just a rough way
that I have answered yonr questions. 1 hope
you will fix them up so that you can get the
drift from them. Write me up a nice article.
I hopo you will help me all you can through

rate ot $2,000,000 per rmonth and
may purchase as much as" 4,000,000 per

Secretary Windom has all along been disin

It is of no practical importance whether the
number of silver dollars in the treasury is
decreasing or not, as there is plenty of gold

PENDANTS THE BRIDAL PRESENT.
Pittsburg Beats Its Becord in the Sale
of Engagement Rings.
BRACELETS P0PDLAE WITH SWELLS
Aa Interests? Chat With a Jeweler Abont local
Thome Branch has had some interesting
talks with jewelers abont their business
and the jewelry worn by swells and fash
ionable women. The style has been set by
the Queen and Prince of Wales, and the
Anglomaniacs of New York have readily
adopted their suggestions. Pittsburg fol
lows in line with the rest of the world.
"We have sold more engagement rings in
the past eight weeks than ever in the same
length of time'in our previons history," was
what a prominent jeweler said yesterday,
and, "they have all been handsome ones,
too, solitaires of course, the stones just as
large as good taste and the financial re
sources of the wonld-be benedict allowed.
rTo, the style in the engagement, ormarriage
ring never changes. Some who cannot
afford the solitaire content themselves and
their sweethearts, I presume, with cheaper
stones, but tbe ultra fashionable have
a ' diamond, 'co matter how small.
Sometimes an inexpensive ring is made to
do duty until alter marriage, as in the fol
lowing case where a yonng Pittsbnrger, who
was going to marry an heiress, remarked
while purchasing the engagement ring:
'This small stone will do until we are mar
ried, and then I'll buy her a handsome one
with her own money.'
"The marriage ring is still a band, but
admits of slight changes. At present the
most popular Is the oval band, but whether
oval or flat it binds, for a time at least, just
The third finger of the left hand is the
elected one for the engagement ring, and the
young gentlemen who are matrimonially'
inclined do not waste much time in trying
to make an impression on a young lady who
sports a diamond on that finger. Did we
sell the engagement or marriage ring for the
famous Count Montercole marriage? Not
indeed we did not; why we give a written
guarantee with every engagement ring we
sell, warranting it to insure happiness.
The marriage ring is placed on the same
finger as the engagement ring, and good
taste forbids the wearing of any other on
that hand. v
"Among the fancy rings the marquise is
the most popular; the setting, which is dia
mond shaped, extends from knuckle to
knuckle, and consists of abont five colored
stones down the center, snch as rabies. emer
alds or sapphires, the rest of the space filled
in with small diamonds. The rings are worn
by both ladies and gentlemen, and fre
auently combined with a gipsy ring, which
is worn on the little finger. Apro
pos of the gipsy ring it may be
interesting to Pittsburgers to know
the design originated in this city. Abont
two years ago one of the prominent jewelers
brought them ont in plain, polished, gold
bands, with settings of precious stones, bnt
they were not worn on the little fingers at
first, and ladies only indulged in them.
They required some time to gain the popu
larity they now boast, and the present style
is the twisted wire instead of the plain. The
enameled rings are sold nnder the same
head and are far less expensive than the
real gipsy, bnt as a fad in all the promi
nent cities of the Union the gipsy reigns
supreme with both sexes.
''The gipsy diamond ring is also a favor
ite for gentlemen and consists of a gold
band with the stone embedded in it. The
opal is no longer an nnlncky stone, for as
the Queen of England regards it with great
favor, so do we all. A nnmber of college
men are adopting it for their class rings, as
it indicates shrewdness and aptness. The
rarest and most expensive rings are those
containing rubies, for old Diogenes might
have searched almost as vainly for a pure
ruby as he did for an honest man,
OENTLEltEK WEAK BRACELETS.
"Yes, abont 100 in this city have adopted
the .fashion imported from England, and
sanctioned by Barry "Wall, of wearing for
fall dtess occasions, a bracelet of coiled
gold on the right wrist Fashion decrees,
however, bnt one, and allows no varieties,
as is the case with the ladies. The favorite
with them at present is the knife edge set
ting, with either a large solitaire stone or
clnsterof stones resembling somewhat the
settings of rings. The band of gold upon
which these stones are set is almost invisi
ble, so delicate, it is yet the very essence of
strength and durability.
"The flexible chain bracelet is standard,
and the padlock is worn a great deal, also.
It is an old English style, and their idea
concerning it is that in presenting a young
lady with a padlock bracelet the young
gentleman gives her also the key with
which it is locked upon her arm. If storms
of jealousy, doubt or suspicion assail their
sea of courtship the yonng lady returns the
key to the yonng gentleman, and he under
stands that all is over and has the privilege
of unlocking the bracelet from tbe fair
maiden's aru. In our country the idea is
just reversed. The young man retains the
key ana the privilege ot using it to tree
himself should the course of true love not
"The bangle bracelet, which was at its
height of popularity several years ago, and
in the manufacture ot which the gold dol
lars were used so extensively, was suddenly
cut short in its career by the refusal of the
Government to coin any more dollars.
While they raged 20 coins a day was the
average nnmber ' monogramed by one
jeweler in this city, and nine out ot ten of
the love-sick swains who purchased them for
their best girls wonld have the word Mizpah
engraved beneath the monogram on the coin
which served as a bangle. They are still
worn, bnt are not common, for it requires
$1 75 to purchase a gold dollar, and they are
difficult to procure at that price.
A SCHEME OF TIIEIB OWN.
"Romantic yonng ladies are indulging
just now in a little novelty of their own
called the "concealed locket' It is a very
flat locket attached to a fine cold chain
long enough to allow the clothing to en
tirely conceal the locket, in which is placed
a small picture of the loved one. The
proper thing in the way of a wedding
present from groom to bride, is a pendant
set with precious stones, diamonds and
pearls being the favorite stoues; thisis
sometimes attached to a delicate chain,
sometimes to a narrow band of velvet, then
again it may be used as a brooch or serve as
a hair ornament.
"In brooches the solitaire diamond setting
is still in favor, next 'o it comes the three
stoue settings and then the straight cluster,
which consists of about 15 stones so arranged
that they resemble one long stone. Novel
ties in brooches are shown in a great many
designs, bnt those mentioned are standard.
Gentlemen's scarf pins are much smaller
then formerly, and are tucked in one side of
the tie, a knot in Roman gold generally en
cases the setting'of these dainty pins. It is
probable that as the season advances the
society gentlemen will adopt the style set by
the Prince of Wales regarding the stud.
His decree calls for three diamonds, and
New York has already seconded the decree.
So the death knell of onyx and enamel
studs has already began to sound.

CAMPBELL & DICK,
Freemasons' Hall, Fifth Avenue;
tleman's vest chain, with a bar to go
through the buttonhole. Dickens is the
name of the latest design in a gentleman's
chain. "Its characteristic is a large ring
that fastens m the buttonhole Instead of the
bar that'has been used so long, It is single
strand, made of platinum and gold, the
metals used alternately in the strands' of the
chain. In watches there is nothing new.
nnless ladies are wearing smaller ones and
gentlemen, have theirs more lavishly
"Earrings are inclined toward the hoop
both in plain and in jeweled designs, bnt in
either are slight and delicate compared with
those of the ages past, in fact everything in
the line of jewelry is to-day finer, more deli
cate, more artistic and more expensive than
ever in the past history of the worlds. Compare-the
artistic little watch chains worn
by the ladies of to-day with those a yard
and a quarter long that were considered
good form a few years ago, then the ear
rings of the 'past. "What large, heavy
crude ones were worn, and what fine, deli
cate, exquisite ones are now in favor. Brace
lets and rings have shared in the advance
ment, and while jewelry has increased in
value to a remarkable extent, it has in
creased proportionately in beauty,, so say
one and all the importers."
