Frank paid 82,500 for them, and
S400 duty at tho New York Custom
House. They arrived yesterjday, and
in the presence of officers of the pub
lic museum, he opened the box which
contained the mummies.
Then Mr. Frank began to remove the
cloth that covered tho face of ouo
of the mummies.
The gentlemen present beat over
the box as tho cloth was beinc re
moved. As tho last fold was taken
away they saw tho semblance of a
head crumble and decrease in size
until nothing but a tablespoon full of
impalpable dust met their gaze.
The covering to the rest of tho body
was then taken away, and tho same
transition occurred. Tho other mum
my met with a similar fate.
The gentlemen aro nuzzled to know
whether the United States climate
affected tho mummies, or whether
some shrewd mummy manufacturer
in Egypt sold Mr. Frank a fake.
Mr. Frank will do his utmost to
collect tho duty he paid the Now

is no duty on dust, and that is all he
has to show for S2.500.

A Night of Horror.
Special by The United Press.
Sax Francisco, Sept 12. The
schooner Louis arrived from Thin
Point, Alaska, tlm morning with 7,500
cases of canned salmon and 250 bar
rels of fish. Captain White brings
further intelligence of the loss of the
bark Oneida. He asserts that the
drowning of the seventy-eight Chinese
was due to the criminal negligence of
the captain and crew.
In speaking of the matter, Captain
White said: "The night was calm
and the sea smooth as glass. When
the bark struck the captain and crew
got into the boats and pulled about
500 yards away from the vessel.
From 10 o'clock at night until day
break sailors lay off the bark and
listened to the howls and shrieks of
the poor frenzied devils on board.
Many of the Chinese were washed
ashore in the water butts. A large
number of these were standing on the
deck and the Chinese crawled into
them only to bo caught like rat3 in a
holo when the ship broke in two."
In tho hold cf the vessel there were
dories enough to have saved every
life on board! AU that was necessary
was to take off the hatch and four
men could have launched every dory
Thero was plenty of time to do the
work as the Oneida did not begin to
break up for over twelve hours after
When daylight came and the sailors
saw where land lay they pulled away
and left the Chinese to their fate.

President Cleveland has decided to
abandon New York as a place of resi
dence, and seek a home in Massachu
Efforts to get something definite
from Cleveland himself, have proved
unavailing, but those who are near
him intimate that with the rank and
file of the party in New York, more or
less dominated by Hill, he would have
much better prospects in 1892 if the
plan of the campaign were mapped
out among trusted friends in Massa
chusetts. The Democratic party is with him
solidly and the Democratic leaders
are hopeful of his coming, although
Mr. "Collins says he should think
Cleveland would rather meet him on
his own ground and achieve the pres
tige such a victory would give him.
If ho comes Cleveland will scarcely
live in this city, but rather in some
convenient suburb. Several excellent
opportunities for a business partner
ship are open to him here.
