the swallows which have migrated at
the outbreak of the pestilence have not
yet returned and there being no spar-
rows at all In the city Is adduced as
evidence that the atmosphere Is still
vitiated. This migration of birds made
a deep Impression upon the publlo and

one ticket tegular Democratic. The
county eleotion Is exciting much Inter-
est as the tickets running are straight
out Democrats regular Democrats and
Kepublicans. Some scratching Is In-
dulged In and the contest Is eagerly
watched. It looks as If the regular
Democrats will be successful owing to
the defection of negroes who' are ex-
pected to vote solid with tho Independ-
ents but who are rallying strongly and
support their own candidates on the

stove In and she keeled over and sunk
In two minutes. Those laved rushed on

Into the United States at more eastern

Canada do not permit the Importation of
distilled spirits In packages of less ca-
pacity than 100 gallons and as domestic
spirits are. put up In packages of less

personating Captain Lewis the dead
master of that vessel was' to-day ar-
raigned before Commissioner Locke on
a charge of running away with the
Yessel'ahd'dlsposlng of the cargo. The'
testimony proved that the master was
sick when the vessel sailed and con-
tinued so for six days. On the sixth
day the man at the wheel saw the Cap-
tain fall from bis chair In the cabin. He
was pjoked up byj tile Mate and Steward
and" laid on' matrcsse's In the cabin.
They then administered something to
bin) front a bottle but l e expired in a
few moments. Mate Walker then
changed the vessel's course so as to
reach the Bahama Island. He was
originally bound for Trinidad Arriving

deck load of lumber and went to Inanua
whorp.'he sold some flout' and bread!'

The 'Buhset Employes Clamoring
For some time past there have been
Indications of dissatisfaction among the
employes of the Sunset railroad at this
place on account of failure to receive
their pay growing so great that a strike
was Imminent and was only averted by
the positive assurance that the pay-car
would be In to-day. It has been three
months since the employes In this city
have been paid and many of them are
really suffering from the consequences
of the failure of the company to pay
them. It has become almost Impossible
for them to secure credit for the neces-
saries orilfe the condition of the road
A I.imrr reporter this morning went
out to the Sunset shops and circulated
with the boys to some extent and while
they were very reticent having assur-
ance that the par car was on the way to
the olty. havlngleft Columbus last night
yet sufficient was learned to Indicate
that If the car had 'not arrived to-day
there would have been a big strike on
the end of this road and no engines
would have went out from here to-
morrow. The men were desperate and
they would have had good reason for
taking measures to force the company
to recognize their needs and pay them
their Just dues.
It Is believed that all trouble will
be averted by the arrival of the
pay car unless as has been Intimated
the company has been paying Its men
off In certificates of Indebtedness in
which case there will be trouble and
the business of the road be greatly re-
tarded. The employes however nave
been as patient as could be expeotcd
and if harsh measures are resorted to. It
will only be In case of necessity. The
Light trusts the boys will receive their
pay and all trouble will pass over.
Colored Citizens Hold a Meeting to
Obtain Educational Advantages.
A large meeting of our colored breth-
ren was held last night In the Recorder's
court-room. The assemblage had for
Its object the consideration of the best
means to adopt In order to seoure larger
and better educational advantages for
the colored youth of this city. The
ltev. Mr. Henderson was elected Chair-
man W. W. Grimes Secretary. Appro-
priate remarks were made by Parson
Henderson Parson Jordan W. W.
Grimes J. It. Davis Mrs. Grimes and
others. Many of the arguments ad-
duced by the speskers were forcible and
true all of the addresses being marked
by an :earnestness which showed bow
deeply Impressed they were with the ne-
cessity of education and the fact of the
number of colored children who are de-
barred from educational benefits owing
to there only being ono schoolhouse Is a
striking argument that larger facilities
are required and should Immediately be
obtained. A oommittee was appointed
to prepare a memorial and address the
Ssn Antonio School Board with a view
of procuring the necessary Increase In
colored schools. The foUowIng'gentlc
men compose that committee: Wnf.
Logwood. Parson Henderson J. It. Dai

The lirst tiny drops which were the
precursors of yesterday's refreshing
shower seemed like "angels' visits"
few and far between but the downpour
soon grewlieavler showing that Jupiter
riuvlus was In earnest) the clouds
loomed up from all the cardinal points'
and poured out their volumes over the
greater part of the county. Although
the city was only favored byra compara-
tively small shower the reports from
other sections of the country1 show'that
It was of a heavier character. At ttnut.
ton the cotton crop Is assured owing to
the copious rainfall. Bastrop was fav-
ored with a refreshing shower being
the first rain In eight months. It was
general In the eastern portion of McLen-
nan county. From Georgetown also the
report of a good rain fall oomes and
from Taylor similar news Is received. It
Is sincerely to' be honed that we have
not seen the end of this change. Al-
though.lt rained heavily the crops will
require another good rain or so. But
like "AutoIycus'r In Winter's Tale we
must be thankful for small blessings
and certainly the washing of the trees

and n roar of welcomo went up when at
11 o'clock Greely was discovered with
a comrade coming towards the
landing In the admiral's barge.

As the procession neared the Rocking-
ham house where Lieutenant Greely

layed several minutes. Lieutenant Uree-
ly and comrades were seated on the bal-
cony. Cheer after cheer greeted blm as
th crow of tho Tliells Hear and Alert
passed. Greely bowed very low and
seemed to look bis "gratitude to the men
who So' recently resoued him from an
Arctlo grave.- The scene was very af-
fecting. Many brushed tears from their
eyes. Greely was kept busy bowing his
acknowledgments aa the procession

" Speaking of absent-minded people"

of tlfo nibst (.careful and level-headed'

winter we went to a large party and we
both for special reasons were more

was greatly concerned about me as I am
the absent-minded member of tbe fami

carefully after I left the coat room and
before we went down stairs she was
herself all right of course andwas su
perbly dressed. We went dowq In high

A Sotith-Slder who had listened to

THE TOMBSTONE DISTRICT.
An Interesting Talk With Its Dis-
coverer. "I think the day will come when Ari-
zona will produce more bullion than all
the rest of onr territory" said Kdward
Schlcfllln to a San Francisco Chronicle
reporter Ihe other day.
"What makes yon think sot"
"There Is mineral in every place you
go. There Is no place that you can
strike without It having metal. The
trouble Is that there Is too much eastern
capital n the territory. Vou know tho
eastern people go In heavy for science
they wish to do everything hy science.
Now this will not do. Tho territory
wants practical men who will do things
properly and when it gets this clues it
will become a great mining country."
"Vou discovered Tombstone?"
"Ob I was always prospecting and In
one of these tours I came across Tomb-
stone." "Ifow did It get this name?'1
"I was up tn the northern part of the
territory In that section known as the
Wallapi ' country and while there a
company of Indians was enlisted for an
Apache hunt In the southern part of the
territory and I followed them down.
During my Journey I wasKeveral times
asked If I had ever made anything In
these prosneotlng tours and 1 used to
say that I had not discovered anything
of any great value yet but I hoped later
on to do so. I was always alone when I
made my prospects In the Apache coun-
try. This no doubt was dangerous as
the Apaches were very active about that
time. They were killing men all over
the country and had dispatched two or
three trains that summer. Well the
soldiers often used to tell me not to ven-
ture alone telling me among other
things: 'O yes jou'U find a tomb-
stone one of these days: that
Is what you will find." This re-
mark was so often made that It Im-
pressed Itself on my memory and often
when I was In these prospects It would
unpleasantly recur and at length I de-
termined If ( succeeded In finding any-
thing to give It this name. Well In the
summer and fall of 1877 I entered the
present Tombstone district and made
my discoveries but the locations were
not made till the spring .of 1878. The
delay was owing to the Indians. My
finds lay only nine miles from Cochise's
stronghold and at that time I never
built a fire In that district for fear of
attracting the Indians. I used to stay
there about a couple of days go Into
other portions of the country for a week
orsoand then come back again. That
fall I left the country went to Tucson
and tried to get tbe men there to take
an Interest in my Tombstone mines.
But they would not listen to me.
So 1 went and hunted up my
brother (by this time Cochise was
dead and the Apaches had scattered)
and he Dick Gird and I started for the
new mines where we arrived In Febni-
nry 1878 and then made a camp out of
bear grass poles wlthacanvasstretohed
across them. We stayed there aboutstx
to eight months then got some lumber
and built a house In which we lived tilt
the Spring of 1880 when I and my broth-
er sold out our Interests. Dick Gird re-
tained his Interest for anothsr year."
"Do you Intend to settle down now t"
"No; I detest city life. I am now on
my way to Nevada whire I shall pros-
pect again. If the country is what I
think it is I shall stay a few months;
otherwise I shall not."

Mr. Jake Marshall tells of a case where-
in an old lady w(th a flve'year old' child
was cruelty treated by a conductor on
the International railroad! Tbe old lady
desired to go to the second station from
town about twelve miles but not know-
ing the name of the station bought a
ticket for the first station which Is
about six miles from the city. When
she arrived there she found It was not
the place she wanted to get offat and
so Informed the conductor offering'
to pay him the fare to the 'next
station. He however with all tbe
dignity of a railroad conductor In-
formed her that she must get otr at the
station which was designated by her
ticket and she was left to walk six miles
to get to her destination or the same
distance tt get back home. Being hot
and thirsty however she went to the

to be that or MrrAke Marshal who lived
Dut from the station who kept
