TERRIBLE EITECTHOI' DYNAMITE.

IH8of between two and three hun
dretl lives, with serious Injuries also
to wver-l hundred other perscm, and

called the Machlchajo, witli a cargo

dynamite, was unloading at the mole.
Some portion of the Inttamable cargo

tug were blown to pieces, scatteretl
over the harbor and quay, and at least
sixty houses, as well as several
vertsels lying near, and a train at the
railway station, were set on Are by
blazing fragments. The governor of
the town and several other official
iersons of rank were among those
Dynamite, as most of our reader
know, is a preparation of nitro
glycerine, which hitter is made by
treating glycerine with a mixture of
nitric and sulphuric acids. Nitro
glycerine Is an oil and poeesses the
remarkable quality of violent ex
plosion when subjts-ted to slight
presHure. It Is therefore very dan
gerous to handle. To diminish this
danger, and also to present It iu a
form of a powder, an absorlient
substance Is mixed with it, which
holds the liquid nitroglycerine with
in it pores and acts as it cushion
that prevents the nitroglycerine from
exploding under light prvsure, such
as ordinary handling.
Dynamite 1 the name given to
nitroglycerine when thus protected
by an absorbent. I'orous microscopic
shells, known as infusorial earths,

material is ustsl in the manufacture
of dynamite. When dynamite is
subjected to sufficient pressure, by
concussion, for example, when con
tained in a bomb which is allowed
to fall upon the ground from a suit
able heighs, it explodes with terittc
force. The explosive power of dyna

for some kinds of blasting, particular

gunpowders are preferred.
The most authentic history of gun
powder attributes its discovery to a
German chemist named Bert hold
Schwarx, sometime during the cen
tury beginning with the year l'KKt;
and this remained for more than "o0
years the explosive most commonly
used, until the Invention of gun

k '.!l)03SlllERB, PLANT.
In a corner of the grounds of the
Columbian exposition, in the part
called the 'buck yard," stood one of
the most curious exhibits at the fair
the plant of an illicit distillery.
The plant of an Illicit distillery, or in
cant phrase "moonshiner," Is very
seldom preserved when captured.
F.lther the still is destroyed before
the seizure or it is destroyed l.y the
revenue officers, as in many cases the
distillery is located on the top of
rugged mountains, which make the
transportotion of the seized articles
There is very little of the romaniv
of crime left in America. The gentle
art of holding up a coach la now
practically a thing of the past. So
that there Is little left in the wav of
exciting adventure except the fre
quent train robberies and tlie -caslonal
disturbances of the half
nomadic jasiple of Kentucky, Ten
nessee and some other states, who
gain a precarious livelihood by the
illegal distillation of ardent spirits.
Though the literature in regard to
moonshiners Is very limited, two or
three novelists have used the stills in
the mountain fiwtnessasa foundation
around which to weave their plots.
There appear to be three distinct
classes of people who engage In illicit
distilling; first, the common crlmin-.
als; second, old confederate soldiers;
and third, the diccndants of men
who engaged In the owt-revolution
whisky Insurrection, men who re
gard revenue laws as unjust and op
pressive. Hye Is one of the principal
cereal crops iu many of the states in
which illicit distilling is carried on.
Hye Is bulky, cheap, and therefore
not convenient or profitable to trans
port over the wretched roads. Hut
once converted into whisky, it tun
easily lie transported on hoscback,
and the commodity can U; readily
disposed of near home.
To men coming of a whisky-making,
whisky-loving sHpIc, the laws
of the federal government enforced
by the treasury department sts-m
tyranny. It Is staled that whisky
can le made where rve is cheap for
'M cents a gallon. The Internal
reveuue tax is now !( cents a gallon.
So that it will be reivlilv seen that
large profits may U made if the
whisky can be sold without having!
to pay the tax. When attacked, the :
moonshiners dcfei.d themselves, and j
as they are expert marksmen, tliei
pursuit of the moonshiners is ex
tremely hazardous; lint thee are not
as bloodthirsty as they are usually
painted, and (it is a significant fact
that most of the revenue officers who!
are munlcrcl are shot In the back.
As soon as a moonshine still is brok
en up iu one place another Is started
a few miles away. The bonier of
North Carolina and Otsirgia Is a very
bad sMirt for illicit stills, the people
traveling from one state to the other
The still Is in form nearly always
of the crudest sha, like the one
illustrated, which is really a very
good example of a lietter class still'
Some of the make-shifts resorted to
by some of these curious people are
really amusing, and many of the
stills are made of common wash
boilers. The grain Is, of course,
hand-mashed. The market is gener
ally lwal, seldom lieing outside of
the state. The moonshiner is a
curious outgrowth of the revenue
laws, and his history forms a very
curious picture of the primitive
condition of border life.
Oorht We to Visit llert
A lady belonging to one of the
old New York families elected to try
suburban life with her young chil
dren, and, as it hap'tcned, her next
neighbor, a very rich parvenu, w ho
considered herself one of the fashion-
able autocrats of the village, and who 1
was not particularly well up in the
stK'ial pedigrees of New York, chose
to Ignore for some time the modest
establishment which was so close to
her own rather pretentious villa.
Finally, however, after alout a
year's knowledge of each other's
names and faces, the woulJ-he great
lady rustled up to her somewhat
astonished nelghlior as she was scat-
ed on the deck of a fcrrylxmt en
route to town. She introduced her-!
self In rather a patronizing fashion,
and, explaining that she really hail
no time to make visits, said in a
manner Intended to ls gracious : "I
hoe you w ill consider this it call."
"Thanks, s very much," replied
the scion of the Kniekrtockcrs, very
quietly. shall le very happy to
do so, and I also hope that you will
consider it returned. New York
The Astonan reports that during i
the past November, rain fell on i'i
day, and the total precipitation
amounted to 17.21 Inches, w hich
amount is greatly in excess of any
previous Novemlier rainfall, and was
, . . , '
only exceeded once during any
month of the year since January,
Inst. This fsYurred during Janu
ary, lss7, when the total precipita
tion was 11.11 IncheV.
A striking parallel tojhe Hawaiian
case, so far as the circumstance at
tending the change of the form of
government are concerned, is fur-ni-hed
by the record of the establish
ment of the republic in spaiu in IsTJ.
In that instance, it Will Is' remem
bered, (ilis'n Isal-ellii II., who
sembltsl I.lllioukalanl In point ol
moral delinquency, had been le
lsed and banished four years Iteforc,
and an ehs-tive monarchy hud inter
vened, but had not proven satis
factory, and so the Cortes proclaimed
the republic, fieneral Sickles was
on - minister to Spain at that time,
and he was in open sympathy with
the rcpubliniu movement, and con
sulted frequently with its leaders.
In other words, he did all he could to
promote the sinttsis of the anti-monarchical
party for months prcctssting
the event, and was fully advised as
to everything that was Is'ing done.
The authorities at Washington were
well aware of the course that he was
pursuing, and they approved and
encouraged it. (ieneral Grant was
president then, and Hamilton Fish
was secretary of state; and it did not
oxvur to tt-eni that it w.s any part
of their duty to sustain a monarchy
and to antagonize a projected repub
lic. Sickles reported several weeks
iu advance that a republic could mhii
lie organized, ami lie was instructed
to recognize it at the earliest oppor
tunity. The I'nitcd States was not
only the first nation to nt'ognize the
new government, but the only one
with the single exception of Switzer
land, and the people were entirely
satisfied with the proceedings.
If tirant had looked at the matter
in the light that Cleveland views tin
Hawaiian situation, be would have
hastened to espouse the cause of the
monarchy and to recommend the
restoration of Isabella. There was
far more justification for such inter
ference in that case than there Is in
the present one. The action of
Sickles was much more offensive
than that of Stevens, It is not to be
doubted that the former co-os-ratfd
directly and effectively with thf
revolutionists, w hereas the latter, at
most, was only a passive sympathizer
with that element. Moreover, tin
new government of Hawaii has Us-n
recognized by all of the nations hav
ing intercourse with the country,
while the Spanish government was
treated w ith general contempt l.y the
F.urois-an powers, lint (irant's for
eign policy was an American one.
It did not include the idea of re-
pudiating the philosophy of our
political system, ami giving aid and
comfort to ilethroiKsl mouarchs.
Fish, unlike (iresham, did not have
any grudge against a successful rival
to make him an attorney for a disso
lute woman who had Iss-n deprived
of rulcrship liccause of her vices ami
her unfitness in every respect to
exercise authority. The republican
party was in control of the govern
ment, and it was not then, any more
than it is now, a party w illing to
take sides against an attempt to ex
tend the principles and blessings rep
resented by our institutions. It Is
true that experience proved that the
Spanish eopie were not ready for a
republic, and it is questionable if
they ever will be; but the fact re
mains to the credit of Grant that he
did not try to prevent them
from having one and did not
undertake to place the I'nitisl
States in the attitude of subverting
a republic and restoring a monarchy
on the plea of righting a wrong and
causing Justice to Is done to a dc
K)ed and disreputable queen.

Hut the yashmak is not what it
was 10 years ago, and r..s almost
cmscd to hide the face at all. Strict
as the sultan's ordinance Is, there is
not the slightest pretense of obeying
it, and in the great majority of ciw-s-s
a thin, white veil barely covers the
forehead, and is but hsisely drawn
together under the chin. The cross
band which n-ed to cover the nose
above the eyes has entirely disap.
pea red, or is worn only when ladies
appear In public at such places as the
swis t Water, or in their kaiks on
the Golden Horn and the llosporus.
u must lie admitted that with the
disuse of that old-fashioni-d veil, a
great illusion has disappcansl from
the stn-cts of Constantinople, There
was something very mysterious
about it. Hlatk eyes never looked
so black and deep and liquid as w hen
ss-n by themselves, ns it were, le-
tween two broad bands of opaque
white. In those days every yash-
mak veiled an ideal lieauty, very
different from the ugliness of the
pale and flaivid
f.-ature which its 1
abscm-e now generally discloses.

It seems that the sugar-makers ol
the country, not the sugar refiners,
but the cani-planters and those en
gaged iu the Us-1 and sorghum sugar
industry, are determined to make a
vigorous light against the sugar
schedule In the new tariff bill. They
have Iss'ii organic! for the struggle
1 for several months, and during the
tariff sciiis uf the majority of tin
Ways and Means committee they
presented their protests and argu
ments against the repeal of the bounty
iu a forcible, if not effective, manner.
They now- propose to carry the con
test in the House and to resist tin
reieal all along the line.
The sugar producers claim thai
their position is entirely different
from that of others who may Is- af
fected or Injured by the new tariff.
They insist, particularly the Iss't-
sugar makers, that Congress) is mor
ally if not constitutionally Isiuud not
to disturb the Ismnty law during the
period fixed for Its duration ; that,
acting u on the inducement held out
by the act of ls!o, the sugar pro
ducers have made large Investments,
the value of which would ! im
pairtsl by the ptpossJ rejH-nl.
The McKlnley act provides in
term that frcni and aP.er Ji:!v 1.

shall lie paid to sugar producers It
i no i niKHi .-tiaies lor an sugar ol a
certain grade a bounty of two cent.-
kt pound. This provision, a dis
tinctly protective measure, was en
acted in lieu of a tariff, and all sugar,
except that above number Hi Hutch
standard in color, whs placed on tin
free list. Sugar above the Hi stand
ard pays a uuiy oi nail a tint a
muiiiI. The Wilson bill prooses t
resnl the liounty by stages and so
that it shall cease entirely July 1,
1 !!-. The duty of high grade sugar
above it; Hutch standard is to be rt
iIuihsI from one-hair to one-quarter
cent per pound.
i ou conieuuon oi uie sugar pro
ducers, aside from their argument in
favor of the advantages to the coun
try of the protective policy, is that
the sugar paragraphs of tho tariff act
of is'.Ml amount to a contract; that
tho terms oll'ercd by the law have
la-en accepted and acted upon iu
good faith; that the repeal of the act
in this regard would disturb vested
rights and individual contracts run
ning into the future, entered Into on
the plighted faith of the government
to maintain the law until I0o.". They
insist, moreover, that the bounty
provision was distinctly intended to
operate as an Inducement to invest
ors; and that it was a promise that if
capitalists would smbark their mon
ey iu a somewhat hazardous business
the law would net la disturbed for a
fixed and definite perils. And they
then urge that congress has not the
moral right to violate its ow n plight
ed faith. And to strengthen this ar
gument they enumerate and sint
out many instances of large Invest
ments and of contracts extending
into the future which have been
made on the faith of the law which
was enactisl to remain In force until

Mr. L. GodchauxV elm hall re

of sugar recently, the production of
seven days' grinding. About SIOO
tons of cane j-r day passes through
the rollers, -lO.ntHi iounds of granu-
la ted sugar falls from the vacuum
pans every six hours, and under the
skillful management of Mr. Ivldle

with cane, and at night 600 cars are
pulled in with a thousand tons of
cane to aptieaso the ever-crying ctll
for more cane. About right miles of
railway are required to hniidln this
vast crop. A Baldwin haomotlve,

a few days; yet with nil this Im

the manager has led to the Inisirjsir
ation of about 300 acres more of new

terrible blasts of dynamite operating
with fatal effects on the stumps that
block the prognsvi of the plow. If
any one were to mention the fact
that this country was now in the
