Tribute to Htt tVatsllnrs by an Appre
ciative Virginia antlentan.
He woo a magnificent typo of tho
real bluo blooded Virginian, and
when a member of tho littlo party
with which ho wan chatting in n cor
ner asked him, 4,What of tho Virginia
girl?" a delicious flush of prideful
color warmed his faco, and ho mado a
reply striking and beautiful.
"Tho Virginia girl is now as hor
mother and grandmother wero be
fore hor. Sho is fitted by nature and
trained by education to bo tho wife
of a strong and bravo man and a
mothor of Bturdy boys and virtuous'
girls. Sho is not mado up of watery
elements, though her voice is over
soft, gontlo and low. Sho says
'father' and 'mothor' in dutiful tones,
and yesternight when, liko tho Lady
"Her genUe limbs did she undress.
And lay down in her loveliness,
sho said 'Our Father who art in
heaven' reverently, confidingly and.
trustfully. A Christian sho is, with
no more doubt of her faith than that
tho sun shines. Chasto sho is, with
out knowledge or suspicion of evil.
Simple sho is, and ignorant and heed
less of tho great world, whero wealth
and position aro the guinea stamp
that makes effulgent hearts as false
and as black as hell, and when she
marries, as marry sho does, she will
do her husband good, and not evil,
all the dayB of her life.
"Slender sho is, with tho correct
line of beauty, litho and graceful.
Her hand is "not exactly small, for it
has wiekled the rolling pin, Neither
is her foot small, but it is an honest
foot a foot light enough and a step
trim enough to dash tho dew from
heather flowers; a foot eloquent, not
liko Cressida'8,but eloquent of surety ;
a foot to twirl in any schottischo or
cotillon, to cut tho pigeon wing or
tread tho mazes of the reel or oxe
cutetho shuffle of tho Irish jig.
"Nor has her education been neg
lected. She was a Staunton and
Vassar a year or bo, and her father's
library contains some Btorling books,
as does nearly every homo in old
Virginia. Thero is a piano, too, and
tho Virginia girl is perhaps at her
best when, with voico liko a night

simple ballads hor grandmother

San Francisco, July 28. A thirty

tonight by the arrival of the British
ship Cedar Bank from Newcastle, New
South Wales. The vessel started March
3d and was laden with ooal and had a
fair voyage until Juno 20th, when her
cargo was discovered on fire. Prompt
efforts to extinguish the flames proved
unavailing and It was decided to Jetti
son a part of the cargo. Two hundred
and sixty tons were thrown overboard
and then, owing to the extreme heat
in the hold and the great difficulty In
handling the burning coal, It was ne
cessary to desist. Large quantities
of water wero thrown into tho hold, the
pumps part pf tho time going day and
On July 10th two explosions occurred
and the flames burst out and ran all
over the hold. The hatches were kept
battened down as much as possible.
The crew were obliged on account of
the heat to abandon their quarters in
the forcastle and go aft. The boats were
provisioned and towed astern for an
emergenoy. Ono day another boat hove
In sight but passed without seeing the
Cedar Bank's signals of distress. The
fire continued to make headway and

parts of the vessel became very much

hatches and other crevices. Fort was

.4 HOME RULE RIOT
In the British House of Parlia
ment. UBBRALS AND CONSERVATIVES FIGHT
Then Make Up and Pass tho Bill
to Final Reading.
London, July 28. There wns a reg
ularrow in tho house of commons last
night, the scene enacted there being
unprecedented In parliamentary his
tory. Ten o'clock was the hour set for
closure of debate in tho committee on
the home rule bill. Joseph Chamber
lain aroso to deliver the final broadsldo
of the opposition. He was still smart
ing under tho lashing administered by
Gladstone Tuesday evening and spoke
with much, bitterness, giving his opin
ion of closure as applied by the govern
ment. He was frequently Interrupted
by Jeers from the Irish and cheers from
his own side. After one period of In
terruption, he preceeded:
"The prime minister oalta Blaok and
his adherents and they say It Is good.
He calls White and they say It is better.
It Is always the voice of God. Never
since tho timo of Herod, has there been
Chamberlain got no further, for with
his half finished reference to Herod
there came from tho natloullsts such a
roar of Indignation as had notjjecn
heard in the commons bIiico the time
ofParuell. T. P. O'Connor sprang to
bis feet and, leaning toward Chamber
lain, shouted, "Judus." The rest of the
Irishmen tootc up the cry and shuuted
"Judas" In chorus. Chairman Mellor
tried to put the closure hut his voice
rauld notbe he heard.
Then everybody started for the front
bench. Unionists shouted "sag."
Others struggled lu the aisles or between
the benches with radical, liberal or Irish
antagonists, Somebody smashed Tim
Healy's high bat down over his eyee
and as soon as Tim got It off ho jumped
Into the alslo In fighting posture J dot as
Hanbury was knocked to get past.
Hanbury was knocked over tho bench
by tbeforco of tho collision. A free
fight then broke out at tho gugway,
led by William Redmond. Blows were
struck right and left. Tim whole space
bolween the front benches was filled
with a struggling, maw of members,
striking, clawing nnd upsetting each
Finally Gladstone begged Major Ed
ward I. Banks, a sturdy liberal, to help
stop tho afialr, Mejor Banks dug his
way through the belligerents, aud, by
dint of appeals in the name of the
premier, succeeded iu stemming the
Gladstone, sitting upright, had sur
veyed the whole sceno with an Inflamed
face and an expression of sorrow, indig
nation and astonishment which will
never be effaced from the mlndof
those who viewed him. Cbalrmau
Mellor sent for Speaker Peel and when
that gentlemau arrlyed several conser
vatives pointed to Giudslouo and ex
claimed: "There sits Ibe author of it
all." Finally the speaker appealed to
tho party leaders to tell blm what bad
occurred. Gladstone eald bo regretted
that neither bis eyes nor hUears en
abled blm to give a very clear account
of the affair, He then gravely desorlbed
the events as related to him by his lieu
tenants and expressed the opinion that
a division should be taken beforo the
"Judas" Incident should be considered,
Balfour told his side of the story as re
lated to him by his men, he having
been absent when the row occurred.
Speaker Peel decided that tho ex
pression alleged to have been used was
the original cause of tho disorder, He
felt certain that It was used iu the heat
and Irritation of the moment and If the
geatlemau were to say be regretted it,
It would be lib (the speaker's) duty to
take no further notice of the attnlr.
O'Connor then apologised to the speak
er. Thu wai received with cheers.
The uproar began again, however,
and another riot was threatened, but
tho speaker succeeded in subduing It.
Then Mellor resumed tho chair. The
various remaining clauses of the home
rule bill were carried. Syhen the com
mittee arose and Chairman Mellor re
ported to Speaker Peel the home rule
bill as amended In tho committee there
was a graud outburst of cheering and
bats wero waved for Gladstouo. The
report stago was fixed for August 7.
More Chinese Smuggling.
Nkw Yoiik, July 28. Thenrwas an
other clash in tho custom-houso between
local customs ofllolals and Special
Treasury Agent Scbarf over the alleged
smuggling of Chinese into this port.
Tho letter of July 16th addressed by
Mr. Scharf to his immediate superior,
Col. L. M. Montgomery, and forward
ed by him to tho secretary of the treas
ury, which, with the other Information
caused the treasury department to can
cel the power of tho collector to certify
to Chinese return certificates with the
signature of his deputy and tho seal of
the collector was the point under dis
cussion. Mr. Scharf, in his report,
charged that tho whole proceeding of
examining Chinese for admission at
this port was a farce, and that bribery
was resorted to in order to effect an en
trance for bucIi as had no legal right to
land. He belloved many Chinese bad
been smuggled Into the couutry since
tho work had beon reduced to a system
by syndicates of Chinese, who made a
profit of $200 on each or their country
men safely lauded bore.
Tho world says that, In pursuing the
Investigation of the ground of discus
sion between Chinese Inspector of the
treasury J, Thomas Scharf and the
customs officers of this port, it was dis
covered that an organized conspiracy
exists to Btnuggle Chinamen Into this
couutry whoso entry Is forbidden, that
the Geary law is practically inoperative,
that scores of Chinese laborers, cigar
makers, laundrymen and gamblers
have been smuggled Into the port of
New York alone under the guise of
actors und merchants.
Omaha, July 28. For some time the
Indian soldiers stationed at Fort Oma
ha havo been lu the habit of raiding
tno orchards near the-fort. Yesterday
sixteen redskins, led by Hlgb Eagle, a
obiof of considerable famo lu the Sioux
nation, took possession of eoveral trees
In J. V. Vlokory's orchard. Ho got a
doublo-barrclled shotgun and fired
among the Indians. Several wero
struok by tho shot, and Chief High
Eagle fell, mortally wounded. The In
dians drew their revolvers and the
farmer retreated to the house. The
Indlanssurrounded tho house, prepared
to attack It In front and rear. Just
then A. N. Hanson, a well known
scout, dashed up from the frontf and,
with a revolver in each haud, called
upon the excited redsdins to quit tb
premises. Thoy knew Hanson to be a
terrible fighter and thoy scattered for a
few minutes. Before they resumed
tbelr attack, however, further assist
ance came from tho fort, and the farm
er was taved from tho vengeance of Iba
Indlaus. He was placed under arrest.
Mount Stkhlino, July 28. The
