FRIDAY, JULY 12, 1889.
Important Meeting nt Crennon Yterly.
Au important meeting took place yes
terday afternoon at Cressott. at which our
local affairs were represented by James
McMillen, Cyrus Elder. W. C. Lewis, A.
J. Moxltam and John I). Roberts, officers
and members ot the Finance Committee,
and the State was represented by General
Hastings, Governor Beaver attd others.
A committee from Wllliamsport was on
hand to represent the interests of that
section of the State that was also the vic
tim of a flood.
What the outcome will be is not fore
shadowed, or at least not wired to Johns
town up to a late hour last night. Report
says that a Mr. Reeves, one of the Gov
ernor's Commission, said yesterday " that
he knew there has been no suffering in
Johnstown on account of money not be
ing paid out, and that the Relief Commit
tee at Johnstown has #150,000 in its pos
session now " that it does not know what to
do with" And further that the distribu
tion of the remainder of the money "will
depend on Mr. McMillen's committee at
Johnstown agreeing to our plans laid
down at Harrisburg."
In view of these statements we shall
await the result of yesterday's meeting
with no inconsiderable impatience and
anxiety. That there are #150,000 in town
lying around loose because there is no
place for it, sounds rather funny.
Startling Statement by Governor Heaver
Yesterday— 5T, 500,000 Already Expend
In speaking of the work done for the
relief of the people here, Gov. Beave
yesterday made the remarkable statement
that #1,500,000 had already been expend
ed for the relief of the sufferers. Gov.
Beaver ought to know what he is say
ing, but we venture the assertion
that if one-third that sum has been
expended, the sufferers in this val
ley did not get it. A million and a half
dollars is a large sum and if that much
has been paid, the expenses of running
things have been very great. Our people
arc suspicious of the actions of Governor
Beaver, and if he tries to make the country
believe that even one-half this sum has
been legitimately spent here for the re
ief of the people they will want to see the
9500,000 to I>© Paid Out at Once—So Sayn
tlie Governor's Commission.
Mr. Tom L. Johnson, Chairman of the
Board of Inquiry, James McMillen, A. J.
Moxharn and W. C. Lewis of the Finance
Committee, ami others who hud gone to
Cresson, returned about 10 o'clock last
night. Messrs. Johnson and Moxham
were seen while on their way home, and
it was learned that the Commission had
practically agreed to the recommendations
of the Board of Inquiry as printed in ful
in the DEMOCRAT on Monday. This will
provide for the immediate payment of al
claims in classes 1, 2, and 3 and will re
quire an even #500,000. Judge Cummin
will be here to-day, and if lie is satisfied
with the registry, as it is, he can begin
paying out the money at once. It is to
be hoped that this will be much more
quickly done than the payment ot the #lO
a head has been.

v x~77 WAS early In my seat, for
flVio, /[ ' I like, above all things, to
tlffl . Bee th® motley crowd of
y sun-burned Spaniards come
#■ V 'jj trooping to their national
ly . game. I was not tn the
VL sorabra or shady scats, for
I prefer to take my place
v \ among the crowd, one of
whom I almost am now, and, moreover,
what right has a penniloss young artist
to spend a dollar on seeing a bull fight?
How noisy and hot and dusty they all
looked us they trooped In and took their
seats around me! I was surprised at tho
crowd, there was no great matador going
to kill bulls to-day, yet all the cheaper
seats were filling.
I asked my neighbor, a peasant lnja
Hat black hat, trousers, and highly
decorated gaiters and a bright waist
coat, and wearing his coat slung from his
"Senor," I said, "can you tell me why
so many people are here today?"
Ho looked at me a moment with an ex
pression of surprise.
"You do not know!" He spoke with a
strong Andaiusian accent. "Sebastian
will kill the bull."
"Sebastian?" I said. "Senor, do not
think me ignorant, hut I know no bull
fighter of that name."
He laughed.
"He has nevor killed a bull before: to
day Is his first. He comes from this
part; that is why every one is hero."
Then he added: "I will tell you his story.
Sebastian is only a muleteer who once a
week drives a caravan of mules from his
mountain village to this town. Once a
weok he comes with his burden of fruit.
But ho Is poor; tho mules are not his;
he only works for another." He paused
for a moment and he added: "You aro
a stranger here?"
"Yes," I said. "I arrived yesterday."
"Then you do not know Juanita—La
Bella Juanita we call her?" He did not
wait for mo to answer his question, but
continued: "Every one falls In love with
Juanita, and Sebastian, like the rest, did
too. He prayed and besought her to
marry him, but she is proud and would
not look at tho humble muleteer. But
after u time his handsome face and oft
repeated tale impressed her; so slio told
him she would marry him if he would
kill a bull in tho ring at today's fair.
But hush! Hero sho is."
I turned in the direction in whioh he
was pointing, and gazed with astonish
ment at one of tho most lovely creatures
it has ever been my lot to see. All eyes
were fixed on hor, yet she was as Impas
sive as if she woro alone and unnoticed.
Her light, golden hair —not uncommon
among tho Spaniards—was bound up high
upon her head, and surmounted, by a
dark crimson rose, which held in its place
her mantilla ofblack lace.
It was time the bull fight commenced,
and already tne impatience Spaniards
were shouting and calling, but yet tho
qobernador had not taken ids seat in the
box reserved. I was all impatient to
see Sebastian, and his was the first bull
he killed. I gazed hastily round the ring;
what an anomaly it presented. Near me,
but in the bettor seats, wero a lady and
her two little girls, whom she was feed
ing on chocolate and whose tiny hands
were all ready to clap tho victorious ma
Behind and around me were the jaunty,
dusty crowd, among whom passed anil
repassed the sobers of water, with their
shrill cry of "Aqua, aqua fresca," and the
vendors of biscuits and uuts. Below is
the arena with its burning yellow sanil, a
miniature desort. Suddenly tho band
commenced to play. I turned, and saw
that the administrator's box was no longer
empty. A small man in a black coat and
u silk hut hud taken his seat, surroundeu
by half a dozen officers in full uniform and
a lady or two. One by one the spears of
the picadors were handed to them, and
he measured the points to see that none
were beyond tho prescribed length—suf
ficient to slightly wound and enrage the
bull without endangering its life or injur
ing it seriously.
Four of the matadors were profession
als; the fifth —to whom was given tho
place of honor in the center and slightiy
ahead—was Sebastian. All eyes were
turned on him.
A gate is open in the arena. With a
roar, uiid a -iiout from - the people, the
bull rushes from his darkened cell into
the ring. He looks around him; for a
moment he paws the ground; then, led
on bv the moving cloak of one of the
matadors, he charges. A graceful bend
of the body and a slight movement to ono
side, and iHo bull has passed his quarry,
who stands untouched and smiling be
hind him. Again he charges, three times
in quick succession, but. his horns touch
Homing moii' solid than the crimson
cJouk, which waves above ids head each
time as he passes the matador. For a
moment "toro" stands as if stupefied ;
then espies a larger and safer foa.iL, rani
with a fearful rush lifts horse and
picador into the air, hurling them to the
ground in a heap. The matadors are
quick, however, and while the picador is
being helped I o his feet and the attend
ants are u -addling the horse, fast bleoo
ing ' > death fiotu a wound in its side,
they 'Mi, off the Hull by waving their
cloaks and keep his attention lixed ou
tliemseive... He is n good bull. The
people are delighted. "Ilrnvo, toro!"
they cry. "I'ruvissimo!"
Another horse falls dead, the third is
.rounded and let out, tlio fourth killed,
but the Spaniards are not satisfied iu
Hi dr love of blood.
Two of the matadors step to the side of
theuiviitt, leaving their cloaks and taking
i i each hand a banderillo. They step
into the "enter of the ring, and poising
the: ist lvo-> m tiptoe, holding the bande
rillos i'ur above their le ads at arms'
length, face the bull. A moment the now
.minus beast pauses, then with a charge
makes f> :• one of iiis adervsaries. tor a
second all is a cloud of du :. in which the
.jdvaiidug of bad and mun are
sen.. Ely uD.-cniibloj tie nt x:, tie bull is
bellowing round the ring with the points
of the bander ios fast in his shoulders,
and the bnmlcriiloro is smiling and bow
ing unscathed. There is no need for five
banderillos on this bull. Four times do>-s
he receive the sharp-fo-ked points, and
four times does he miss his man.
The bugle sounds.
Snbaslau who up to now lins gazed in a
care jars way at the scene, stops forward,
takes the sword uud the Hag, and with
a gallant stride marches to the ad
ministrator's box, where he swears to
kill the bull.
There is a deafened cheer as he throws
his hat among the people to be held till
lie returns victorious—or dead.
I turn instinctively toward Juanitn;
she was leaning back in her seat, slowly
fanning herself, her half-closed eyes
scarcely conveying even an expression of
interest in the proceedings.
Seflfcstlan faces the bull, the Hag in his
left hand, his eyes watching the beast's.
His hand is as steady as a rock.
The bull charges; I drew a quick
breath; Sebastian is all right; gracefully
with the ease of a practised bull lighter,
he escaped the horns, which merely
touched the scarlet ilag.
A eheor rings out from the crowd,
bringing a flush to his cheek.
Again the bull charges, again and
again ; each time Sebastian is unscathed,
but as yet he hue had no chance of killing
the bull. He is faring It now; elowly he
rateca the sword—the point never trem
bles. For one s • ond all Is dust, the
next 1 saw his manly form laid out full
length iu the sand.
Accustomed as I am to bull tights I
"Ho is killed!" cry the people; "he is
killed 1" The bull never looks at him
again, passing on to attack the cloak of
one of the matadors. I gazed at Juanita
once more. Her expression lias not al
tered to the last degree; her fan merely
vibratos a little quicker. I hated the
A shout from the people recalls my at
tention. Sobastian lias risen, picked up
the sword and flag, and is facing the bull
once more. There was silence in the
ring Jiike death. Again the sword is
raised, again all is dust, again a form lies
prostrate in the sand—but this time it is
the bull! Sebastian has killed it at one
stroke, a feat seldom accomplished by
ev< 11 the masters of the art.
Never have I heard such a shout ns
rang through and through the build
ing as Sebastian approached the
gobernador and bowed. He is paler
than ever, but a smile of victory,
lights up his lips. Then, sword in hand
iio turned, approached, and faced Juanita,
ills dark eyes gazing into her face. Her
expression is the same us over; as he
bows to her she never ulters a feature.
Tbero is no smile of encourngouieut,
scarcely a sign of recognition; she plucks
a rose, however, from her breast and
throws It to him.
He stoops and picks it up, and, with
his eyes fixed on hers, lifts it toward his
lips—hesitates—throws it to the ground
and tramples it under foot.
A deafening cheer arises from the
crowd—cheer upon cheer.
I looked for Juniata. She had left the
Five minutes later, as Sebastian passed
through the archway into the open air,
still in his deep scarlet and gold, a dag
ger was burled deep in his breast.
I saw Juanita do it, and it was the
only time I ever saw her smile.—Black

<lae,r Sculpture anil Painting on the
Kofki In Virginia.
The erection of the new government
dam in the liver near Charleston, W. Va.,
has hidden from sight the famous "pic
tured rock," one of the familiar land
marks of the Kanawha valley, and one
which has occasioned much wonder and
fruitless speculation. The rook was lo
cated near the mouth of Paint creek, und,
while tho river was in its natural condi
tion, was visible at low water every sum
mer. Some years ago a part of the stone
was removed for building purpores, an
act of vandalism which should have been
prevented at all hazards, and now the re
mainder is submerged at all seasons of
the year.
When whole tho surface of the "pictur
ed rock" was aboui 20 by 30 feet
in extent, and was covered with repre
sentations of animals, fish ami fowls,
carved deep in the smooth surface. On
one side were the figures of a man and a
bear, the latter being about life size.
Near by was a buffalo track, and a short
distance away was tho representation of
a largo flsh and a number of footprints,
evidently representing the imprint of a
child's foot. The work was evidently
done by prehistoric people, as the tradi
tions of the valley are that the repre
sentations wero On the stones when the
llrsi white man visited the region, and
that they then bore unmistakable signs
of great ago, being water worn smooth.
The vicinity of Paint creek is rich in
aboriginal and prehistoric relics.
At Mooreiield from the thno of tho first
settlement, tho cliff known as tho <Up
Bocks, in tho Petersburg Gap, has homo
the giguiitic representation of a common
Iczx. This picture is upon tho sheer and
inaccessible face of the rock, some thirty
feet from the top and nearly 100 from tho
bottom, and being colored a dingy yellow
in sharp contrast to the browu stone,
has been visible lor a long distance. Lust
Tuesday, the 9th inst., Glen McGill, of
Ohio, who was visiting Cell Beans, near
this place, went out to view the fox, ac
coiupanieu by Sir. Beans. After an in
spection from the bottom of the cliff the
two men ascended to the top and making
a rope fast to a tree, SlcGili lowered him
self down 1" the fox. Ho describes it us
being about twelve feet long, and painted
or plastered upon the cliff with a sub
stance resembling earthenware glaze,
whieh is as hard as the rock itself. The
surface of tho fox is quite rough, as
though the stuff was roughly smeared on
by hand before it hardened. There was
a high wind blowing at the time McGill
made his venture, and he ran considei

Tho following story of Daniel Webster,
illustrative o' his winning personal
traits, told by a leading local lawyer, is
given in the Albany Journal. fears ago
tho late Krastus Corning, of Albany, as a
comparatively young man, made Mr. Web
ster's acquaintance some what intimately.
As a result of the friendship it turned out
I'.mt tho former indorsed Mr. Webster's
bank note for a considerable sum. When
the note fell due protests came to the Urm
and they paid the note. Knowing Mr.
Webster's impeeuniosity and not wishing
to crowd him, they did not call upon him
for security.
After soino years, and when it was sup
posed that Mr. Webster's linaneial condi
tion was much improved, Mr. Corning, at
the ins'tince of the linn, wrote, asking
Mr. Weubter if he eould make it conveni
ent to pay tho claim. Tno answer was a
courteous note from Mr. Webster making
excuses thut just ut present he could not
meet the demand, and ending up by a
pressing invitation for Mr. Corning to
visit him later, when he would probably
be able to pay, or at least to secure the
claim sati-factorily. The firm advised
Mr. (Joruiug to accept the invitation,
which lie did. tin jiis return Mr. Corning
came home delighted with tM* pleasures
of his visit, and entertained his partners
with glowing accounts of tho great states
man s hospitalities and dcscscriptions of
tho charming incidents of the sojourn,
in winch he ignored the business object
which partly impelled the visit.
Finally, after ho had exhausted descrip
tion of the visit, one of Mr, Comings
friends said: "Well, I suppose Mr. Web
ster was pleased because he could pay
the noto ?" "Pleased to pay the note,
said Mr. Corning; "ho not only didn't
pay the note, but ho so charmed mo that
he got ins to sign another note for $5,000,
and I am thankful that ho didn't ask mo
to make it SIO,OOO, for I don't think I
could have resisted his roquost." Mr.
Corning is said to have had a subsequent
invitation to visit Marehfleld and to have
declined on the ground that he could not
afford so expensive a pleasure.
