What's In a Name?
The custom, of naming flats after
their builders or owner? is a growing
one and sometimes rosul s in a curious
combination. Just below me are two
new flathouses, built last summer. One
was named "Albert," and on the plate
glass front door of the adjoining one
wa9 the word "Madeira," it having
been built by a patriotic gentleman
who names his flathouses after various
wines. But the latter was sold to a man
named Hawkins, who forthwith put his
own name up. So now the combination
is complimentary to the old time and
widely known White House coachman,
"Albert Hawkins. "New York Herald.

MONEY KINGS FEAST.
The Banquet to Millionaires Recently Given
In London by Baron Hirsch.
I Baron Hirsch is a highly susceptible
millionaire who believes in royalty, who
has followed the fortunes of the Prince
of Wales assiduously, and .who is sup
posed to have "staked" that personage
on many occasions. For awhile he
dropped' out of the papers, but he is
back again now, and his genius for do
ing things that cause people to talk
seems again to be in good working or
der. The dinners of rich men have been
frequent, . but Baron Hirsch conceived
the idea of getting the 13 richest men
in London together and giving them a
dinner which would rank as the most
expensive one in the long history of that
great dinner giving metropolis.
According to a correspondent, it was
a feast of money from beginning to end.
Not a single guest was admitted whose
fortune was not estimated in millions
of pounds, and the English papers have
become delirious in trying to figure out
the exact wealth represented by the bar
on's 11 guests.
The baron himself made no pretense
of giving the dinner for a special ob
ject, except to see how good a dinner he
could buy. The chef of the Hotel Savoy
and the proprietors of that establish'
ment entered cheerfully into the baron's
scheme, and the result was a dinner
which it took four hours to eat, was
paid for in about four minutes and cost
upward of $5, 500. It cannot be wonder
d at that the Prince of Wales is fond
of Baron Hirsch.
NEW ATLANTIC CABLE.
How It Is Exported to Facilitate Commnni
cation With European Countries.
The laying of the new Atlantic cable
is not an event of the same importance
as the laying of the first cable of this
kind, but the fnct that it is expected to
raise the speed to SO words a minute in
the transmission of messages indicates
that it will revolutionize the sending of
submarine messages and draw Europe
into muoh closer relations with America
than existed before. This will quicken
the two continents in their thinking
and feeling as well as in their commer
cial relations. It is one of those subtle
yet important agencies by whioh the
whole of mankind are constantly being
brought into closer relations, man with
man. At the present time the news of
the London and Paris and Berlin papers
is transmitted tons with such speed and
accuracy that we are able to judge what
is going on in Europe with substantial
comprehension of its import, and when
this new cable is in operation news of
this kind will be much more complete
than it has ever been before. Boston
Her Peculiar Mania.
Miss Sophie " Behrens, a young lady
well connected in this city, has been ad
judged insane and taken to the asylum
at Independence. Her mania was that
she was engaged to several young men
of the city, whom she threatened with
suits for breach of promise unless they
came to time. Her letters became so fre
quent that it was decided to bring her
before the commissioners of insanity.
It is a peculiar case. She even went so
far as to have her wedding trousseau
made. Dubuque Cor. Minneapolis
A Novel Bottle.
A Skowhegan (Me. ) manufacturer of
patent medicine made an offer of $20,

him a bottle that could not be refilled
after once being emptied. An ingenious
mechanic named McQuillan has invent
ed such an article, and the firm has al
lowed him six months more to make
any improvements or changes needed In
his invention. It is a curious yet sim
ple article and will cost only a trifle
more than an ordinary bottle. Lewis

INTO A DEATH TRAP.
PATE OF A KOREAN WHO tJODGED
ASSASSINS FOR TEN YEARS.
A Conspirator Lured From His Place of
Comparative Security by the Promise of
Money and Political Power A True Story
as Startling as One of Gaboriau'a.
Gaboriau never wrote a detective nov
el that had in it a more startling story
of criminal revenge than has the follow-
ing true story from China. The assas
sination at Shanghai of Kim Ok Kim,
the Korean conspirator, was the climax
of 10 years of sleepless pursuit of this
refugee by emissaries of the Korean gov
It seems that Kim, who was the lead
er in the Seoul palace plot of 1 884 and
fled to Japan to avoid death, recently
received letters from an old Korean exile
in Shanghai offering to pay him a large
sum that had been due many years if
he would go to Shanghai. About the
same time Kim received an invitation
to go to Shanghai from Lord Li, former
ly Chinese minister to Japan, specially
instructed by Viceroy Li Hung Chang.
This step was taken by the viceroy, it
is assumed, owing to the increasing in
fluence of Russia in Korean affairs, and
he felt the necessity of an alliance with
Japan as a Setoff against the encroach
ments of Russia. For this reason the
attitude of China toward Japan in con
nection with Korean matters has become
much milder of late, as may be in
stanced in the appointment of a much
more easy going minister in the place
of Yuan, the late representative of
China in Japan. , With this change of
policy the support given by China to
the Ming family has sensibly deolined,
and their influence has in consequence
waned. Lord Li intended to have held
a conference with Kim, with the idea
of drawing up a programme of progress
ive party politics which it was proposed
to introduce again into Korea.
Kim saw the means of gaining a
small fortune and of increasing his pres
tige with China and Japan. He saw
that the latter might lead tp his return
to power. So he ignored the danger and
started for Shanghai. Whether the as
sassin accompanied him is not known,
but the day after he reached Shanghai
Kim was killed in a foreign hotel.
The assassin, Kwo Sho, was caught
and held for trial He belongs to a fam
ily said to have held an official position
for generations in the peninsular king
dom. He came to Japan in 1888, al
most resourceless, and earned a difficult
livelihood by various devices. Never
theless in 1890 he managed to procure
money for a trip to Europe, where he
spent three years, often encountering
great hardship, but always, finding
means to live without recourse to char
ity. Returning to Japan, he showed a
keen interest in politics. Those who
know him best declare he is an adven-'
turer who would undertake any crime
for sufficient reward.
On the same day that Kim was killed
a plan was devised for murdering Boku
Ei Ko, another Korean who had solicit
ed funds for a school in Tokyo for train
ing Korean-youth. One of the students,
Tai Gen, told his fellows that he had
been ordered by Li Itsu Shoku, a Ko
rean, who claimed to have instructions
from the' king at Seoul, to murder Bo
ku. The lad hesitated because the vic
tim had been good to him. Li and the
students were arrested.
After Kim fled from Korea repeated
efforts were made by the Korean govern
ment to procure his extradition, but the
Japanese foreign office refused to enter
tain any such demand, obviously op
posed, as it was, to the practice of civi
lized nations, For a time the refugee
was prudent enough to avoid any act
that might shake the Japanese govern
ment's decision or endanger his own
privilege of asylum. .. But as time went
by he acquired assurance and began, or
was supposed to have begun, fresh de
signs against the public peace of the
country. The Japanese authorities had
then to choose between running the risk
of troublesome complications with
Korea, or ordering Kim to leave Japan,
or removing him to some place where
his machinations would be practically
powerless. The first of these courses
would have been plainly unstatesman
like, the second would have involved
Kim's death, and the third was open to
several objections. Nevertheless the
last course was chosen. Kim was sent
to the Bonin islands. Here he lived a
comfortable and uneventful life for some
Finally it was decided that the cli
mate of the Bonins did not agree with
Kim, and he went to Tokyo. An im
pression constantly prevailed among the
Japanese that Kim could never rest
without making some final attempt to
carry out the programme which failed
90 signally in 1884. It is said that in
his early days he three times dissipated
the whole of his resources in gambling,
and that his speculative tendency did
not disappear, but only took a different
direction in later years.
In his own country and in China he
was always regarded as a factor of po
tential magnitude in the oriental ques
tion. The anxiety of his government
about him was shown by repeated at
tempts to get possession of his person,
and even, it is rumored, by more than
one commission to assassinate him.
A man of considerable attainments
and wide erudition, he possessed also
the gift of winning not only confidence,
but sympathy. During his residence in
Japan where he went by the name of
iwata Shukaku, wore the Japanese cos
tume and spoke the Japanese language
fluently he made the acquaintance of
many foreigners. New -York Telegram.

PETER THE GREAT.
A Horse St Hands High, Weighing- 1,700
Pounds, Is SHU Growing.
A freak of nature and world wonder
in the shape of a horse is drawing many
of the curious to the lively stable on
South Third street just now. This spec
imen of the equine kind is unquestion
ably the tallest in the world. It is, in
fact, a colt, not yet -3 years old, measur
ing the enormous height of 22 hands 7
feet and 4 inches. In weight this horse
wonder tips the scales at 1,700 pounds.
Peter that is his name is a gelding
and was foaled in Minnesota in June,
1891. He is of Norman stock and a
beautiful dapple gray in color. What is
almost as remarkable as his huge pro
portion is the fact that his dam and sire
were not above the average size of that
breed of horses. Another colt from the
same dam and sire, a year younger than
Peter, but proportionably as large, if
not larger, died some months ago. - . ;
Peter, as evidenced by his weight is
a well proportioned animal. His limbs
are clean cut, and the. head; body and
neck of good form, He is, as is the case
with many coltg, a little bit swayback
ed, but this imperfection, horsemen say,
will disappear with age. The hips are a
little higher than the highest poipt of
the shoulders, from which the height
and measurement are, usually taken.
Should , the horse grow to maturity,
it is not unreasonable to expect that he
will attain fully 6 inches more in height
and develop proportionately otherwise,
carrying a weight possibly of 3(000
pounds. A gelding seldom attains its
full height tfntil 7 years' old, while mares
generally mature two years younger.
There is nothing of record, several
horsemen say, which equals the height
of the colt in question. Several years
ago, however, there was a horse on ex
hibition in Toronto which weighed 2, 800
Peter is physically sound and healthy.
At such an age, growing with the ra
pidity that he is, he could not retain
much flesh, though he might be said to
be in good trim for work. His carriage
is good and movement far less clumsy
and awkward than might be expected
of an animal of such proportions. Se
