An investigation is being made of the

Edward Walker, ol Chicago, a speival
attorney to represent the United States
in the case of the suit against the com
missioner of Yew South Wales to the
World's Fair. Among the exhibits of
New South Wales were a lot of gold
nuggets. These were attached by a
traveling circus company which liad
recently been in Australia and alleged
that throiiiih the defective quarantine
arrangements of that country the circus
company hud lost many valuable horses.
They sought to recover on the nuggets
of the New South Wales exhibit. An
examination of the law here discloses
the fact that a foreign government can
not be sued in a United States court
without its consent. Even if this point
were not conclusive, the government of
New South Wales in the circumstances
is a guest of the United Staies and en
tilled to immunity, even if the allega
tions, so far unsubstantiated, were true.
The case will probably be dismissed if
Commissioner of Pensions Loehren
has issued the following iuiportantorder,
simplifying the practice ol the burden
in the adjudication of claims under the
famous act of June 27, 1800: "Pension
certilicates issued under the second sec
tion of the act of June 27, 1800, will no
longer specify particularly the disabili
ties. In such certificates, where the
maximum rating of $12 per month is
allowed the certificate will state it is for
inability to earn support by manual
labor. Where less than the maximum
rating is allowed the certificate will
state it is for partial inability to earn a
living by manual labor. Whenever, in
the case of a pension granted under the
said section at less than the maximum
rating and a higher rating is subse
quently sought, the application for such
higher rating shall be considered and
treated as a claim for an increase, and
not as a claim for a new disability, and
the increase, if allowed, will commence
from the date of medical examination
showing an increase of disabilit)."
Between adjusting the accounts of the
North American Commercial Companv
with the treasury department, and the
claims of the treasuiy department for
$((,802. 000 against the North American
Commercial Company, the natives of the
seal islands in the Arctic ocean stand a
good chance of starving this winter. The
North American Commercial Company's
accounts to the extent of $24,000 $4000
for coal supplies to the United States
revenue cutters, and $20,000 for supplies
furnished the natives are held'up. The
commercial company is seriously con
sidering the advisability of withholding
further supplies to the natives unless
the account already presented are
passed. The whole matter, as previously
stated, has been referred to the attorney-general
for consideration, and it
will probably find its way into the
courts. In the meantime much solici
tude is felt for the fate of the natives,
who entirely depend upon the supplies
furnished by the North American Com
mercial Company for subsistance.

For those lout koiiIh) the aoft, tweet chime
Of the Forrabury bella.
The mowi creep over Holt ream church.
Where rings no vexper lay;
Still waits the tower iu blessed bella.
And silent stands today.
For low beneath the Cornlnh wave.
Where tangled wreck He deep.
The Forrabury bells are hid
And lueir sweet echoes keep.
But ever 'gainst the billows to.
And storm winds shriek in glee;
Their muffled chimes be blessed belli
Still ring beneath the sea.

FOURTEEN MILES OF FEAR.
A Ride nark End Foremost Over a
Strange Railroad Track by Night.
"Funny, isn't it. what daredevil acts
railroad men will often do?" asked a
little traveling man of a few friends as
he dropped into one of the Grand Pacific
"Yes, something like trying to run
two trains on the same track or trying
to see whether the rails or a man's leg is
the hardest," suggested a fellow drum
mer. "No, I mean in the ordinary course of
business. The other day I started for
Washington and I h:; I a premonition
that the trip was n,t to be of the best,
for on the way to the depot 1 purchased
a pocket comb of a street vender, who
gave me a quarter too much change.
We got as far as Aubnrn Junction and
it was awful dark, when the station
agent informed us that there was a
wreck between us and Defiance. O.
Later he said there were two wrecks
and that three men had been killed. The
debris was piled so high upon the tracks
that it would take the wreckers hours
to clear them. 1 saw our conductor and
engineer in close conversation.
"Suddenly the conductor said. 'Bill,
there is nothing left ns but to run around
on the Wabash tracks to Defiance.'
" 'But the Wabash has no operator
here to give ns orders." answered the en
gineer. " 'Oh. I'll cnt you off and we'll turn
the engine around nt the nmudhimse
table and make our way over the four
teen miles of strange track As lung as
your headlight shows up you can creep
over the road, can't yon?
"Tho knight of the throttle was a
careful man. but he knew that the
United States mail was being delayed
and a couple of hundred passengers were
angrily demanding that the trainmen do
something to hurry them on. 'I'll go
yon,' hi said, and the engine went down
to the turntable to turn around. Upon
coming back it was discovered that it
would be impossible to couple her to the
hind end of our train, as the sleeper draft
irons were of a different pattern and
higher than the coupler of the engine.
Another pause for deliberation.
"Finally the conductor advised the
engineer to go back, turn around and
couple on in the original position.
'We'll just cross over on the spur and
back up the fourteen miles.' And we
did. That stretch of fourteen miles on
a night as dark as pitch, over an un
known road, without a headlight and
with 200 passengers unaware of the risk
the trainmen were running to accommo
date them and well. 1 tell you it was
exciting. No orders, no nothing, as you
"1 stood on the hind end, which was
then the fore end, with the conductor
and four brakemen, as we slowly dragged
our way through the darkness. The
flagmen carried red lanterns and torpe
does to run ahead and flag should a
train be heard approaching, but it was
dollars to butternuts that had a head
light appeared around one of those un
known curves no one of our train could
have reached the approaching train in
time to prevent her from crashing into
our train. I've done a little railroading
in my time and have taken a train over
some risky places, but that fourteen
miles of backing up without orders,
without a headlight to aid our progress
and on a strange track, is about the
most squeamish ride 1 ever traveled.
That shows you how many risks a rail
road man will take to please the travel
era." Chicago News.
American and English Women.
The average American woman, it has
been repeatedly said, suffers from nervous
exhaustion caused by the hurried, spas
modic way in which she does her work.
She lacks the cool, systematic method of
her English sister and the phlegmatic tem
perament of the German woman.
In the southwestern islands of Japan the
women are the laborers. Their hands are
tough and tanned with heavy work, while
the hands of the meu are delicate and
white. The men play the samisen while
the women dance, but it is considered a
disgrace for the women to play.
