h. was a tart led by the appearance of a
big, vll lalnoue-look trig man, who demand
ed that the lights be cut off. Kelly Is
a amad but nervy man, and ordered the
fellow out of th. elation. Instead of
going the vlaltor reau hrd for th. it. am
valve, and was turning It when the elec
trician stunned him by a heavy blow on
Ih. Jaw. II. then made a signal, which
waa responded to by three dark-viaaged
pale, who bad bean crouching behind th.
dynamo. Aa they attempted to croaa
the room the eeement interfered as If by
magic. A heavy gal. of wind brought
two wires together, sending th. current
bark Into tho smaller generator, which
Instantly waa converted Into a motor
and reversed lis motion. A streak of
lightning flaahed about the room, while
a blu. light aw mad to come from every
part of th. building, and tongues of fir.
struck terror to tho hearts of th. visitors.
Th. big fellow nod precipitately, but his
compauilona lost th-lr beatings and
begged for merry. Kelly had seen th.
cut runt playing at rang pranks, hut never
anything like that , After getting th
three men out he brok. the switch and

plalna that the wire became crossed by
the wind, and whan the switch was
broken the tvtulon was again released,

A Oood Oouttook for a Firm Money Mar

New Tork, March IL Th. Financier
The statement of the associate banks
of New York City for the week ending
Marrh tl reflects Ih. prevailing shrinkage
In th. money market. Th. loan expan
alon for the week was not quite 11 no.-nn
The outward movement of currency still
continue., and It la the prevailing sen
timent that th. return tide will not set
In until April or per ha pa later. Thee,
are eigne, however, that this flow Is
nearing Its end and while there has been
a fair demand from western centers, ex
change rates are easing slightly. The
outlook, however. Is for a nrm money
market for some time to come. The
government depository banks Isst week
turned over four millions Into the treas
ury In response to th. call for the S)
per cent payment and as the sum remain
ing lo lie paid la a very larg one, the
amount of payments to be made has an
Important bearing on the general situa
tion. The execes reserve Is down to 20.
000,000 and a call for the balance of the
government deposits would hav. an em
barrasring effect on the market as th.
reserves of the banks are In many rases
at a low point. The treasury Is, how
ever, treating th. banks liberally In this
matter, and no fear It Is said may be
apprehended from such a causa.

when the government Issued Its note of
Wednesday last, saying that the proposed

Th. wording of this not Is now sad

Much Interest Is manifested In legal and
other circles In tha bill Introduced at
the Instance of LcrJ Salisbury, for th.
suppression of Indecent evidence. This
measure waa read for th. secon time In
the house of lords yesterday. By Its
provisions th. Judge 1 empowered to
order evidence which he thinks will be
prJudlclal to public morals not to be
published. The lord chief Justice, Baron
Russell, of Killoween, Is known to be
opposed to the bill, and It Is quoted that
the master of rolls. Baron E'her, presi
dent of th. divorce court. Is of the opln
In that the law Is already strong eoouRh,
and that If the pi ofjosad measure b
come, a law. It will practically establish
a censorship of the press.
Lord Clenesk, proprietor of th. Morning
Post, contended that th. tendency of
the press was against the publication of
such details, and asserted that he had
read more offensive things in recent nov
els than had ever been found in news
paper. Although the bill had been read
for th. second time in the house of lords
It Is doubtful If It will be adopted by th.
house of commons.
The Field continues Its opposition to
the presence of the Tals crew at the
Henley regatta, and prints a letter urg
ing the most stringent Inquiry Into the
amateur standing of members of that
crew who Intend to take part In the
race at Henley, "without being desired
to do so," as the writer says, and sug
gesting the passage of a rule excluding
all foreign crews from participating In
the annual regatta at Henley.
Another letter to the FIHd contends
that racing for money by public sub
scription, as has been done In the United
States, prejudice! the status of members
of the Tale crew and amateurs.
Henley. On the Thames, March a. Un
usual attention Is centered upon this
year's regatta from the fact that more
than ever It will partake of an Inter
national character. In addition to the
entry of the Yal. crew, there are entiiJs
from rowing clubs from Holland, France,
and Germany. It Is also hoped the fa
mous Argonaut Club, of Toronto, will
again cross the Atlantic and compete.
In consequence, the officials are making
preparations for what will undoubtedly
be the record year.
J. F. Cooper, secretary of the regatta
committee, said: "Nothing could have
given the committee more satisfaction
than the entry of the crew from Yale
They are so well known to English ath
letes, by reason of their contests, that
they will be welcomed with open arms."
Not Thought Likely the Cannerymen
Will Effect a Combine.
Portland, March SI. Saturday night
finds the cannerymen still talking, with
no solution of the vexed questions con
fronting them yet provided. They are,
if anything, more at sea than at any time
during the session, and It Is not at all
without the range of probability that a
combination will not be formed at this
time. Some of th. members left for
home this evening, but those remaining
are holding another session tonight. From
the present outlook, It will result as all
others have. Ther seems at this tlmu
no way to harmonise the various clash
ing elements sufficiently to allow a suc
cessful combination to be made.
The meeting of packers adjourned to
night to reconvene In the parlors of
the Portland Tuesday. Many matters of
Import have been settled, but nothing
tending to a realization of the primary
object for which the meeting was called.
Tho meetings have been exciting, in that
almost each one had an idea of his own
to introduce which he .strenuously sup
ported, but the result has always be n
the same. It Is understood other con
solidation schemes are In preparation for
Tuesday, and that at that time the de
sired combination will be formed. Mem
bers absolutely refuse to divulge any de
tail of the matters considered In the
meetings already held.

Safe In Port After a Tempestuous Pas
sage from Newcastle. .
The old colonial trader Balochmyle
came Into the harbor of Astoria yester
day, after a passage of 76 days trora
Newcastle. N. S.W. Captain Talt, her
commander, reports a rather unpleasant
voyage: this and an accident which
occurred four days after leaving New
castle has bad, no doubt, a good deal
to do with the length of the passage.
At about 9 p. m. on January 8. l.v,
while the ship waa In latitude 12 south
lil9 east, she encountered very severe
weather and was dismantled, her main
topmast carrying away about five t.'et
above the lower cap. The wreckage fell
paruy on uecK ana partly over tn. siae,
and, In order to save the ship, the gear
and rigging had to be cut away. After
almost superhuman efforts the decks
were finally cleared and the ship' was
once more headed for Portland, ur.der
Jury rig. The heavy Iron topsail yards
were broken like carrots, and h.r imwer
ful pitch-pine topmast splintered like
matchwood. The loss of canvass and
ropes was great, particularly on the
Captain Talt and his crew, hower.r,
did not remain Idle: every available soar
and plank was used up In making new
masts and Ashing yards that were brok
en. Hawsers and hauling lines were
utilised In making rigging and when '.he
vessel arrived here yesterday she did
not look as If she had passed through
such an ordeal: but to the practical sea
man she appeared a sort of nondescript
craft, for, while she had double topsails
on the fore, she carried the old-fashioned
single topsail on the main, with double
topgallant sails on the fore, while the
main was minus both upper and lower
topgallant yards. The ship, as sketched
at the time by one of the officers. Is a
truly marvelous sight.
The vessel will take out part of her
cargo here and then proceed to Portland.
The damage to the vessel's rigging, while
serious, has In no wise, however. Im
paired the hull, and Captain Talt ex
pects little detention. If any, on account
of the mishap. Captain Talt deserv.-s
great credit for bringing his vessel safely
into port. Many a shipmaster would
no uouoi nave run his vesael Into some i
N;w Zealand port and re-tltted her. All ;
the world likes a plucky man, and it 's I
to be hoped Captain Talt will have his I
reward from the proper Quarters.
