U ,v1 "Vnihlngton, Jin. G Tho Senate to
day listened to a masterly discussion on
tho truat problem by Hoar, tho vener
able locator from 2daff5.-ichutoUr.
Ho opened by Eaying that hcr.cknonl
1 oJficd hi) bill to bo imperfect and tenta
tively experimental in character. Ho
. - contended that, with tbo exception of
.. the coal strike, tho country had not suf
fered from lbs trust evil in any way yet
w to affect tbo general prosperity. Tho
condition of workmen was better than
in aiy othor period of American his
tory, but trust legicfation abould bo en
acted with a view to tho- future rather
than tho present.
r Such terrible money powers as wore
concentrated, in eome cases, wore
greater thau tbo power of many ctntes,
greater than the powor of any other
natron except ours, could mako or pre
vent wars, threaten tbo community with
a coal oi wheat famine, and execute
Senator Procter gave notice that be

When tho Housa mot, Hull succeeded
in griniog immediate consideration for
the general stall bill. After a general

, Not Such flard Sledding .
-. J. D. Laird, tho mail contractor tells
' tho Hail tbat who ever said sledding
" " 'was a failure on the Coob Bay wagon
, Ir i. ljfl wn! mistaken. On the contrary it
is proving a success, and 3Ir. Laird" is
? much pleased with the reeult of his ex-
r periment. ilo is now using eleds regu-
; . larly on the J2 miles of road between
' f Coos City and Falrview, and tbey.ro
not only easier on the borees than pack
ing the mail but the effect on the road is
--- better. r .
As an instance. Mr. Laird says that
one Jot of mail, which it required 5
horses to bripg to Falrview, hauled from
there to Coos City on a sled by one pair
of horses with eao, It is also proving
to be much eaejer on the borsee to haul
tho mall than to pack it, and more sleds
. will be UBed on the road as soon as
tsey can bo rlggtd up.

It.l lkMtU, HIM.
couuecucur, Rata tho ottter night that
for Botue tlmo tho spile drivers had ex
perienced considerable dllllculty In
driving tbo httgo spiles lu different
parts of the building site, but, while It
was known that tho obstacle coiiBlstcd
of timbers, nobody then rcnllted that
these belonged to the hull of the old
I-, moii ninp di'ruv.r. imieiHi, ttie lltt in
dlcntlou Mr. Heltlngrr had that con
siderable timber existed deep In the
soil near to the water front was when
ho attempted to lay new water mains.
As all of the excavated part of the yard
was "mndo ground" there was not
mucli surprise at tho discovery of the
Umbers. Rut when tho spile driving
engines began a strip of the building
site about 230 feet In length was found
to bo almost solid timber.
Mcautiino a very old resident of
UrooUlyu had visited the yard, and
when bo saw the laborers worklug on
tbo slto of tbo Connecticut he said that
he remembered seeing sixty years ago
the old hull of the prison ship Jersey
lying right wheru tho men were work,
lug. At that time, ho satd, tho tldo
flowed over tbat part of tbo yard and
tho ship lay half submerged. Her
masts were still lu placo, but sho was
utterly uti6enworthy and hid becu
abandoned, and when the work of fill
ing In with made ground tho part of
the yard where she lay hqyd been com
pleted the old ship bad sunk lower Into
the swamp and quicksand and hud
been covered from sight.
The aped mnn pointed out the exact
place where he bad hist seen the Jer
sey, nnd n careful Investigation re
cently completed by ttic workmen re
Ycalcd that tho two hundred and fifty
odd feet of timber lu the earth nt
which the spile driving engines were
pounding was lu reality n ship's hull.
'This hull I have no doubt." said
Mr. Uclliugcr, "Is that of tho old pris
on ship Jersey, for which patriotic so
cieties have searched so long. I be
lieve, too, that there Is more than oue
historic hull embedded near by In tlio
earth. The hull, whldh I believe Is
that of tho historic Jersey, Is nlwut
the size of the naval tug Nina tbat Is,
about UoO feet lu length."
Durlug tho Revolutionary war tho
Jersey lay off the WalJaboiit basin and
, was used ns a prison by the Itrltlsh
for American prisoners. The tortures
these unfortunates suffered were bar
barous In tho extreme. The diary left
by otic of the prisoners states that the
congestion In the ship was nbouilnable
and the. food rancid and decayed. So
full. It Is recorded, were thu bread ra
tions with mapgots that the prisoners
used to butt the bread against the
ship's sides to dislodge the vermin.
The only means of release from this
floating horror was for a prisoner to
be exchanged or to enlist In the Itrltlsh '
army or die. Hundreds of patriots
died like rats In holes. In 187'J the
bones pf 300 of them were found mold-.

holding them over a hot flatlioii. This,
will remove creases. If you coer the
