The New York Herald, of Nov. 2.1d,
editorially says: The man who doubts
that John lloaoh is the real power le
hind all congressional committee that
havo anything to do with our nnvhoitiou
laws has not yet learned much of the
true inwardaess of things, but it is nev
ertheless startling to find him openly
bullying the euiuuiission as he did Tues
day. It was quite natural that he should
treat tho commission as his own, for al
though he may not be ablo to control
each individual member, his experience
with different congresses justifies him iu
feeling that tho commission us a whole
was appointed solely to protect and ad
vance his interest. Nevertheless when
he insisted upon knowiug who Captain
Codiiun was aud what business he had
before the commission, we think uo
made a mistake. Hoach would naturally
prefer that every mau who kDows any
thing that conflicts with Roach's views
of American maritime felicity, should
be either kicked from tho door
of the commission room or tossed
out of the window if he succeeds in
smuggling himself in. But unfoitun
ately some trilling concession mast be
made, lloach should not allow himself
to bacorae angry without a cause. How
ever he needs only to hold his tqngue
aud temper until the commission makes
iu report. Then he will probably find ,
that he is still boss of what is left of
American shipping. '

The history of the Gloucester fisheries
bows that the industry is one of the
moBt perilona in the world. A table of
the losses for the past fifty-two years
shows that during that time, 419 vessels
and 2210 lives have been lost. The total
value of the vossols lost was $1,810,710,
and on this loss there was an insurance
of $11,35,118. The greatest number of
vessels lost in any one year was in 1873,
the number being thirty one. The next
greatest numbers are twenty-nine in
1879 and twenty-seven in 1870. The
greatest numbor of lives lost in one year
was 219, in 1879. In 1870 the loss of
lives was 212, and in 1M73 it was 171.
Gloucester has a largor proportion of
widows and orphans in its population
than any other city or town in the
United States, and their support is a
heavy public burden. A fishing
schooner, ronnding Eastern Point with
her flag set at half mast, telling that
some one, or more than one, of those
who went out with her on that trip will
never return, is a very common and mel
ancholy sight, setting hundreds of
hearts ashore a quiver lor fear it may be
their dear ones who are lost. Many and
thrilling are the stories of disaster, death
and marvelous escape from death told in
the annals of the fisheries. It was a ter
rible night off Cape Cod, that of January
2, 1878, when five vessels were lost in a
snowstorm, and from tho two largest not
a soul was saved- The crew of the
schooner Powwow, of Proviacetown, en
durod terrible sufferings. At 1 o'clock
a. u. tho flshormen found their vessel
drifting hclploBsly to tho lee
shore of Wellfleet. As their
cable parted they tried to run the
vessel through the surface, but she
struck in the outer breakers. Their
signal ot distress was soon extinguished.
They then set tho kerosene afire, and un
answering signal was soon beard from
the life-saving station. In the courso of
half an hour they saw a horse and cart
moving along tho beach, bearing the
patent rescue gun. A long hour passed
and no other sign of succor appearing,
their hopes fell. They were drenched
with icy water and so benumbod with
cpld that they could hardly cling to tho
rigging. Ono mnsoular fellow was three
times washed away from the vessel.
Twice' ho regainod his hold, Kbnt the
third time his strength failed and he was
lost. One poor boy named James
Downling, whoso homo was in Boston,
succumbed to the cold. "I can't stand
it any longer, captain," slid ho; "I am
going to dio." When last seen by the
survivors he wns lying in the lee scup
pers, his bead hanging listlessly to one
sido, his hair matted with ice, and his
arms clutching in their death grip a coil
of frozen rope. At Inst tho captain
whispered hoarsely, "Good-bye, boys, I
shall try for the shore. May God keep
me for my poor gwifo's sake." A dory
was got over the side, but was instantly
crmhod. Captain Caton then tore off
the cabiu skylight, and heaving ,it over
board, sprang after it. It was soon
wrenched from bis grasp, but he strug
gled aud reached the shore; twice ho
stood erect on tho sand, but tho under
tow was too powerful, and he was drawn
under the surf. The ten men who re
mained on the vessel were rescued by
the life-saving mon, who bad vainly
bocn trying to save the crew of the other

If Mr. William Black wero an Irish
man, I should feel ' inclined to pay
tribute to his nationality by saying that
ho is most at home when he is out; which
is an easy way of saying it, nil tho same.
It is difficult to toll where be is most at
homo on the deck of a yacht in tho
Northern seas; tramping the cliffs ut
Brighton: studying character in the
United States and ustronomy in Egypt;
brooding over a favorite landscape in an
artist's studio; talking politics at the
Ueforni Club; or doing the honors of
Paston House. 1 have seen him under
most of these conditions, and havo al
ways found him the same pleasant, sym
pathetic compunion, tho same thought
ful, unostentatious, quick-witted gentlo
muu. Tightly built, lithe of limb,
Btroug in the arm, capable of groat phy
sical endurance, tho novelist is neverthe
less below tho medium height. Short
b'iek hair, a thick brown mustache, a
i. -ik hazel eye, a firm mouth, a square
forehead, Black gives you tho idea of
compact strength a Binall parcel, so to
speak, well packed. You might soonor
take him for an artillery officer who had
Been service, a yachtsman, or a man who
(-pent most of bis life in out door sports
and pastimes, than set him down us an
author, and particularly as a novelist.
Black might pass for a momber of any
profession except the clerical, or for au
ordinary gentleman of the time, until
you came to know i im well enough to
talk to hnu familiarly, and then you
would find, as vou nlwavs do in men
who have mado a mark on tho current
history of the times, iu whatever direc
tion, something extraordinary iu his talk
aud iu his appearance. You would first
be impressed with the bead-like bright
uoss of his eye, and its steadfastness;
and then you would probably be strucK
with the fact, if you wero traveling with
him, that every bit of natural phenom
ena uoiiiir on around him is an object ot
constant interest to him; that ho knows
the names of the birds you soo and their
habits; if you aro at a sea-port, that he
knows every class of craft, aud the name
of every rope in its rigging; if you are
talking of art, or literature, or politics,
that ho has strong, well-formed opin
ions, and that ho is perfectly frank and
open in expressing them; and, moreover,
that if you do not want to talk, he can be
silent as an oyster;
It is iu these moments of qniet that
lilock is busiest. His Muse is reflective,

"My method of work, he says
in answer to my inquiries, "is, I
think, a pernicious one, and
I should Im? sorry to have it mentioned if
it were to lead any young aspirants for
literary fame to adopt it. Every man
has his own way ot working, and mine, I
repeat, is most objectionable, and a way
I warn young men to avoid. From now
on until October in every year I write
nothing, hardly put pen to paper except
in the way of a private letter, or to make
an occasional note. But I ana at work on
my next novel. I put it into complete
shape, even to the very construction oi
some of my sentences. I often keep
these in my mind for two or three
months. I am thus always ahead
ot my writing to the last. Of course
the method has this advantage: ' You
can 'work in' any incidents or circum
stances occurring in the interval that
may suit yon, and yon get familiar with
your characters; they become, as it were,
part of your family, part of your daily

of the business; working in this way,

"Do you make a summary or precis of
your story before you begin to write?"
"Not on paper."
"Do you make notes of scenery, local
ities, atmospherio effects?"
"Yes, often very elaborate and careful
notes, and especially in regard to atmos
pherio surroundings. If one does not
completely frame a character or incident
with all the ciroumstances of tho time
and place, one gets only a blurred page.
For exumple, one may say: 'It wus a
beautiful day.' But whut kind of a beau
tiful day? It must bo described, so that
the picture shall be truthful and finished.
Every human being in real life has a
background, and must have in a novel it'
the story is to appear real to the reader."
"There is nothing more charming in
fiction or in essay writing," I feel im
polled to add, "than the artistic uso of
natural effects in the illustration of char
acter, and the development and exhibi
tion of incident i, tragic or otherwise; the
pathos that may belong to a gray morn

with a sad thought or tender episode,

Joseph Hatton, in Harper's Magazine for
The felf Helping Baby.
An English gentleman, who passed
many mouths hunting among the Rocky
monntains, says his first genuine im
pression of the west came while he was
riding over an arid plain and from a
squealing baby. It revealed to him the
ingonuity with which a western woman
adapts horself to circumstances, and
makes the most of her limited resources,
"There was nothing," he says, "very pe
culiar about the appearance of this baby
that I buw just ahead of mo. It was not
overburdened with garments, and was
strapped in Indian Lshion to a board
about two feet long and one foot broad.
"The bourd and the baby were lean
ing against the log wall of a frontier
shnnty on its shady hide. There was no
body near. Tho baby seemed very hap
py. Its little arms were free and kept
up constant movement.
"As my horso came nearer, I saw that
some strings were dangling about the
baby's neck, and that one was tied to the
big toe of one of its rosy little feot.
"I was puzzled. Dismounting. I had
tho curiosity to examine the tape arrange
ment. The child was sucking at a bit of
raw pork, about tho size of a large wal
nu. This was tied to ono end of the
string, while the other end was fastened
to the child's feet. A second pieoe of
twine, knotted to the board over its head,
prevented the pork from falling to tho
ground, should tho child drop it.
"Suddenly the baby grew very red in
the face. Then its eyes filled with toars,
and its little arms beat tho air with frun
tio energy. At that moment the mother
mado her appearance.
"'That baby is choking, madam,' I
" 'No, he ain't, and he can't,' she re
"At this instant the infantile legs be
gan to work. One kick, two kicks, and
there on tho bib lay the piece of pork,
jerked from tho baby's throat by the
string tied to the big toe.
" 'Ain't you ever ssen this aforo mister?
asked tho mother observing the English
man's surprised looks.
No oo,' he answered slowly.
" "Tlisjn kind o' remembrance it. May
haps yerwifo won't go back on it.'
