Miljx Merlin;: Car.
The books of subscription to the
capital stock of the connecting
railroad anil warehouse construc
tion company were opened last
Monday at the office of McDow
ell Bros. & Co.Nos. Tt and 7 Court
landt street, and last evening over
'2,OQO,000 of the 4,000,000 capi
tal authorized had been subscribed.
The plan of the company is to
provide such facilities that the
commerce of New York by vessels
aud 13' railroads can be brought
together at a point where all ships
can discharge and load their car
goes and most of the railroads will
converge. Fr so much of the
merchandise as shall not pass im
mediately from thecars to the ves
sels, or vice versa, the company in
tends to provide warehouses, in
which it can remain while waiting
Mr. 1ui. O. .llrDovrrll.
Who is at the head of the enter
prise, said yeserday: "We have
secured control ol 150 acres of
land on the water front on the
New Jersey shore between liavone
and Greenville, and contracts have
already been made for the building
of the docks upon the property.
We shall be able to accommodate
vessels of any size or class. As to
the railroad connections, we pro
pose either to purchase the Hud
son connecting railway line from
the Midland railroad company,
from the point where it now con
nects with the west end of the
tunnel being built by the Ontario
and Western company to Weeha
lmwkcn, or else to build a sepa
rate line from the same point.
The Hudson connecting line now
runs from this point down to a
junction with the Pennsylvania
railroad to Marion, crossing the
New York. Lake Erie and "West
ern, at the west end of the tunnel,
and the Delaware, Lackawanna
If This Hudson Liar Is IScri
It will be extended from the point
of crossing of the Delaware, Lack
awana and "Western under the
Pennsylvania and Newark and
New York railroads, and thence
following the line of the Morris
canal around Fidlers elbow to the
water front. You see that we
shall thus bring the Western rail
roads and the ships together. Of
the wholesale business of New
York ninety-five per cent is with
the country west of the Hudson
river, and in the handling of this
business the commerce of New
York is taxed manv millions of
dollars yearly in cartage, lighter
age and other charges that we pro
pose to do a.ray with. For light
erage alone it is estimated that
$39,000,000, directly and indirect
ly, ate added yearly to the ex
penses of handling New Yorks
commerce, and the total expense
to be done away with by direct
connections between the railroads
and ships has been put by a good
authority as high as 90,000,000 a
year. The average cost for the
transfer of a ships cargo to cars is
$800, of which enough will be
obviated by our facilities to pay
three-fifths of the freight charges
front Xcw York to Chicago.
"When does your company begin
operations?" "We have already
begun. Our charter allows us to
begin when 2,000,000 of the stock
is subscribed for, and more than
that amount is already taken. Ye
start with a number of favorable
contracts besides those for the
building of the docks. With the
various railroad companies we will
take contracts on terms agreed
upon to build and deliver to them
such docks and warehouses as they
want, taking in payment their se
curities, out of which our profit is
to be made." "How does it hap
pen that something of the sort has
not been done before this?"
"That suggests quite a long story.
New York owes her great com mer
ctal growth to the building of the
Erie canal bv DeWitt Clinton.
At that time she was second in
commercial importance to Phila
delphia. "When the canal boats
came down the river it made no
difference t them where they met
the sea-going vessels, whether on
the Jersey shore or at New York,
or at Brooklyn. The Brooklyn
people very promptly built ware
houses to attract the business, and
they cot it. When
Thr XtnilroaiU :il Iil Cntur
They fell in with the arrangements
the canal boats had made, incon
venient and expensive as it was
to them to have to u?e lighters
and trucks and to handle and re
handle their merchandise. Now,
at Philadelphia, Boston and Balti
more the railroads found no es
tablished warehouses, and so they
built them at the proper places.
The result to-day is that the ter
minal expenses at those cities are
far less than they are here, and
New York has not maintained such
a lead a her other advantages
have warranted. The plans of our
company when carried out will en
able New York to handle her
commerce more cheaply than any
rival city, and being the greatest
city, it is not extravagant to expect
that then she will concentrate to
herself nearly all of the commer
cial growth upon the Atlantic sea
board. While we will do much to
take the lighters from our harbor
and the drays from our streets, we
will do more to increase the profits
of our merchants. "We will, I
think, do much towards making
New York more than ever a city
of merchants aud bankers, aud
less a city of draymen aud lighter
men."" Unhappy Peru.
The Chileans are shooting all
the Peruvian guerrillas they can
lay their hands on. "What a pity
they failed to get hold of Pierola
before he skipped the country.
Pierola escaped from his retreat in
the mountains, where he had been
organizing bands of guerrillas, on
the advance of Chilean forces to
break up the rendezvous of rob
bers and scallawags, is now re
potted in La Paz, trying to orga
nize further guerrilla operations in
the north. Monte.ro, at last ad
vices, was still up among the In
dians at Cajamarca. Neither Solar
nor Montero had force enough to
venture out of his retreat, and
merely kept up a show of resist
ance to Chilean occupation of the
country, without effecting anything
more than maintaining the stale of
uncertainty. The Chileans could
easily disperse these remnants of
the Peruvian army, but do not
care to at present. 1 1 would prob
ably be the best solution of the
situation if Chile should annex
Peru outright. The Chileans are
brave and ene rgctic. The battles
of Chorrillos and Miraflores proved
that the Peruvians are not soldiers.
They cannot further contest the
supremacy of Chile, their guerrilla
warfare will hurt friend worse than
foe, they cannot pa' indemnity for
the war, their country would be a
prey to dissension and disorder if
the Chileans withdrew. -Annexation
to Chile would mean new life,
prosperity and advancement.
A Stray Balloon Reported.
Mr. John AY. Tobias, of the
whaling brig Rosa Baker, which
arrived at this port on Friday, re
ports that on June 17th, at noon,
in latitude 27 degrees 50 minutes,
longitude G7 degrees J)0 minutes,
observed a large galloon in the
westward. It was apparently
about one mile in elevation and
about five miles distant and pro
ceediug slowly in a northwesterly
course. We set our colors but
could get no signal from it. The
aerial traveler remained in sight
until 3 p. m., when the weather be
came cloudy and it was hidden
from our view. By the aid of our
glasses we could distinctly see the
car that was attached to it sway
ing to and fro as it moved along,
but could not observe any occu
pants. The balloon seemed to be
of a white or cream color, and of
large size. It Avas proceeding in
tue direction ot -cape Uatteras, the
nearest point of .the- American
coast, distant upward of COO miles.'lthe Uulted'suna on receipt of Si 00.
The Probable Future.
Referring to the newspaper
speculations about the transfer of
the Sandwich islands to some other
power, no facts have come to light,
but the San Francisco Bulletin
says: "Just before the departure
of King Kalakua there had been
an outbreak of popular indigna
tion. It did not go to the extent
of overt acts of violence. But
the royal ruler was given to under
stand that he could not repeat
some of his experiments without
imminentdangerof losinghis place.
The king soon afterward set out
on his journev for the purpose, as
was given out, of securing a sup
ply of laborers for the islands.
Some shrewd observers there as
signed another reason, which was
that he preferred to be absent un
til the popular indignation had
subsided. The Hawaiian kingdom
at present enjoys about all the ad
vantages of an admission into the
Union, without any of its burdens.
The business men of the islands,
especially the merchants and plant
ers, are pretty well satisfied. It is
not at all likely that the king
started off by way of Japan, China
aud the east Indies, with any
definite purpose of entering iuto
any negotiations for the tranfer of
his kingdom, lie is a constitu
tional sovereign with very limited
authority. When fhe reciprocity
treaty was before congress there
was an undertone of expression
that the treaty, if ratified, would
be a step towards the ultimate
transfer of this group of islands to
the sovereignty of the United
States. But no especial desire
was expressed for any imme
diate change. It was pretty
well understood, however, that
when the native sovereignty should
cease, the transfer would naturally
be to the United States. Noth
ing has since occurred to make
that tendency more improbable
than it was when the reciprocity
treat' was pending in congress."
Syndicates or Sharpers.
The dispatches recently called
attention to the new st'le of in
surance swindling in vogue at the
cast, and instanced the case of
Robert Bell, an aged negro who
died at Westminster, Maryland,
July 10th, the insurance on whose
life was supposed to amount to
200,000. Later information shows
that the swindle was much greater.
He was over eighty years old at
the time of his death. He had
boen afilcted with rheumatism and
other diseases for many years, and
pupported himself by selling ap
ples on the streets. It now ap
pears that within the past .two
years an enormous amount of in
surance had been taken on his
life, the policies being held by
some ten or twelve combinations
of speculators, in amounts rang
ing from $1,000 to 812,000, the
whole amounting, it is said to orer
SI, 000,000, divided among various
companies. Whether this amount
can be collected remains to be
seen, it is clearly suown tnat in
Pennsylvania, Maryland and other
states, the swindling business of
procuring the insurance of old and
infirm people, chiefly in mutual
benefit associations, is carried on
very extensively by syndicates of
sharpers, who work with bogus or
disreputable doctors and sometimes
unfaithful officers of the associa
tions. The famous cafe Anglais in
Paris, has J ust completed its cen
tury of existence. Founded in
17S1 as a simple cafe, by 1 800 it
had become a favorite breakfast
ing place, and two years later was
the ,chief rendezvous of the rc
turnod emigres. This was the be
ginning of it.s aristocratic connec
tion, and in the year of Waterloo
the cafe Anglais had obtained a
European reputation. Equally re
nowned under the restoration, the
cafe then established a roulette
table, and has continued in favor
