TH8 FRANKFORT PRISON. c -- i. -T Jt "'Jiijaaswas Goaoral Hewstt resttfies Before the Investigating Committee Yesterday. .Trankftrt,,Feb. 134SpeeiaL)-Tho investigating ootumittre, which ia looking Into the affairs of the Frankfort peni-tentiarynart this afternoon at S o'clock, and - spent- tw Jtoars questioning ex-.uditor Fayette Hewett. -OUT Hewett said that While he was Auditor he did not remember, hearing any complaints about bad food at the penitentiary. . The variety was sometimes insufficient. He visited the prison once a week; or oftener, and made a special duty of inspecting the food. There had been no complaint about clothing. Uen. Hewett was asked to point out the law ander which' the Commissioners of the Sinking Fond planned the authority to lease out eoavlot ander tbe present . lease, to bo- worked outside the walla. He said there was no law for it, and th Board never claimed that there was any .except the law of necessity. The prison wouldn't hold tbe men, and something had to be done wttit them until the Eddyville prison was completed. Mr. -Thomas asked why, instead of leasing the men for outside work, they had not been put to work under State officials on the Eddyville prison, so a to complete it rapidly. Uen. Hewett replied that perhaps that might have been done. The present leas, ha said, net the State nothing, but merely acquits It f all expense for caring ftr the convict. Tu!s was the best they eonld do. They had an offer informally from the gentle men wne lease the prison labor of Tennessee, to pay the same 'price that is paid in Tennessee, $100,000, If they mins nave tne labor on. too same .conditions a in Tennessee. Saeh mndi. tions would have given the lessees full control of tbe labor, without any restriction whatever. - The .Board replied. i uus oner taas is aaa no eotnuruy to make- such a lease, and would not make It if A had the authority. - He said each member of the .board had al ways been eppesed to working the con- -vicio ouuuoe one wain, ana naa oeen anxious to hasten the completion of the iddrviC pruoa.-- tie.- iiewett believed the lessee had always complied with tho law and their eontraot as to -the supply of food and elotoing. and asv to sua treatoient of prisoners at the railroad camps, if they failed, the State's only recourse 1 a suit toe damages and. nut a resci&ion of the contract. He did not think the con tract would havo been made if it had oontainea clause allowing it to be re scinded at pleasure. It had been hard to make, anyway. lie lid not think the work within tbe walls wee profliahie. He knew of no member of tbe Board of Commissioners who had In snv way been benefited by the prison contract, directly or indirectly. He believed they all respected their offioo too tnueh for that. lie himself we associated with the members of tiie leusee firm. In the State National Bank and in the e Obstruction company which is builds ing toe aventoeity aiming railroad. He did not know to what extent the- company had employed oonviots oa the road. Gen. Hewett estimated that It would eo $100,000 a year to run the prison itself, beside an outlay- of at least SlftO.OOO for machinery and material if the State carries the work within the waljs. At the times whea the prison had been thrown on the State's handa for several months, the cost of maintaining it bad been about 1 6,000 a month, wrtii no clothing to buy. H eould not account for the Increased mortality at tbe prison, in spite of the Improved sanitary condition oi too eaiMiinga. - The eommlttee will meet again morrow afternoon. - - - SENATE .PROCEE0INQ3.

Dr. IL Jones and Dr. Moses Collins, took the visitors in charge, and the tour of inspection was at once commenced, The eoounittee was' first taken through the female wards. Those memVrs who visited the Hopkins viile Asylum saw in it a model institution, one larger, but its inferior la nothing. The female wards were bright and clean. Comfortable carpets lined the halls; draperies gave a homelike alt to the wards; the beds were clean and warmly covered, sd the dining-room showed tbe patients are well fed and oared for. The patients in moat inatanoe are crowded together in small rooms, containing some times five and six bod. There was no difference in the female wards.

All powers ana en people would find themselves Obliged to bow their heads under ttw yoke of Germany, and to acknowledge her u-otversni tovereignty. iTherefore. in any strugyie with the quadruple alliance it ia th duty ot Hussi to sustain France, lust as It is tha dutr nf lance to sustain HussU. To th objection that if sn alliance were concluded between France sad Russia, a declaration ot war would be the nut. ntiad result. Mr. Tatishoff replies : - it is luot the same aa it two serauute army corps, acting against a ooncentrat-ed enemy, were advised to keep sepa rate ior tear 01 hurting the feelings of that enemy. And bow should thev bo kept thus separate f By a maneuver which aausv necessarily leaa to defeat! The absurdity of such ad rice is plain to everybody from a purely military point of view; and only half-blind and incom petent diplomacy fan to see it as a matter ot policy. To our eyes it is aa Plata as that two and two mak four that It the peace of Europe is to be as sured, it must be try an alliance frank snd sincere between France and Russia. The conditions ot such sn alliance are very simplecommon defense against the common enemy; a mutual guarantee of the integrity of our territories, and an engagement not to conclude a peace other wise than by common consent. 1 he treaty would contain nothing hurtful to navbodr. even if it was not iustified by th threatening coalition of tbe four other frrrat powers known under the name ot the League of Peace, and which, notwitli- sbabuing its name, is precisely the thiol that compromise the peace of Europe by the mysterious actions and the coa-etant armament of it members.

IIow to Avoid It When 8trtlg Down Swift Elevate Car. A great many people are unable to ride on elevator ears on account of the feeling that their heart and souls are being pulled out of them when the machine stan to drop, says the Philadelphia Inquirer. People with heart affections are frequently forbidden by their phyricians to ride ia tho oars, and it is disagreeable to thousand who ride in spite of it to save time and legs la the nig buildings of the city. A w ell-known lawyer, who has a very level head at most times, admits that his head feels empty wuea the elevator start down, but claims to have discovered a very simple mechanical trick by which he avoids the all-gone feeling. He i willing to have it suggested to his , fellow-mortals anonymously and la no ether way. t . I take a long breath." i sail. fust as I step on the elevator, and hold it with a tight pressure. Then, just a th elevator begins to sink, I let it out exaotly with, the motion ot the car. The quicker the car start, the quicker and harder I pees out the air, and I don't feel a if my soul had tiown out of my collar; in fact, I can avoid tiie least disagreeable sensation." -' Another gentleman, who tried th ex-perimen?. Vouched for the result in. his ease. Don't imagine that you hnv to blow so that everybody else ia the car can hear yoa. be said. All you need to do ia to hold the breath tightly and let it go noiselessly out oi the nose. I think the sensation ia du to the sudden change of pressure of blood in the heart and head, and tho compression of air ia tiie breathing organs offsets that pressure by reaction when the ear starts.

The eve ulng of my arm-al my host proposed that we sbOHld pay a visit to Kawana lpai, tae pu trior sh of the tribe, said to be HO: : xeaxs -oid,- who. I had Ix-cn told, kanr sutt about . the antiquities of the .i&hsnds .than, any other man lMny. - - Kawana Palpal himself was evidently preiinred to receive company.

ILl clouu of iron-gray hnlr w sunpt'uated by the precious white-tipped ; plBrRes "of the sacred hulit, the sign t the. chief tain-ship, and on his is? by a superb battJe-ax of guttering grccu jade, iil lace,' carved and dyed is indigo 'blue in spiral lines over Its whole surface, had t lie appearance of a frightful mask. Through which the eyes glared red and fierce and tbe sharp, white teeth gleamed wolbahy. He had indeed been a famous man-eatet in his day, and aa be sat there in the mysterious firelight, arrayed in barbarous splendor, h looked more like a cruel pagan idol thaa a human being. Nothing, however, could be less savage than his behavior tliat evening.

X quickly discerned that it was upon a subject in which X had long taken the profound rat interest,- but had never bef or been abl to get any light upon, Th point at issue was this: Tho moa, the glgauUo wingless bird . of Kew Zealand, was a most- moastrou - creature. standing twelve or fourteen feet high, oa lea as thick s a camel's, with a neck like a giraffe's; ,sud long, slender. . wiry feathers, which made its soul more like coarse fur than plumage. So much is known about ft, but beyond that all is mystery. The moa ha never been taken alive since the European: occupation of the island, fifty year ago. Solitary settler in tbe leiuotcsb part of tho country, have from tune to time reported being startled in the night by weird and fearful eryj so loud sod shrill that it echo rang from crag to erag, nntil tbe sou ad wa prolonged into tt melancholy cadence of a fog-horn. They eay that, rushing out of door, they have witnessed in the misty moonlight an object of almost incredible sue, towering above the fern-brake and stalk ing away into the uncertain, vapors of ewwouataia glens -with? the f peed" of a race-horse. i Dwelkrs in these awful solitude, however, are subject to strange hall laclnations, and the highest scientifia authorities are of the opinion that the moa ia extinct and ha been so for many centuries. - They found their belief mainly upon this: The Moors have maintained from time . immemorial a priestly caste called tobuna, who lay claim to all tbe power of prophecy ana witchcraft, but whose proper business is to preserv the genealogies and annals of the tribes, A careful study of these curious oral records has established the fact tbst they embody the history of the ppople for about POO year Yet, though they teem, with allusions to every sort ot ' natural object birds, beasts, fishes, insects, plants, flowers, fruit there is not a single reference ia them to the moa, or to any creature answering to the description of tho moa in the slightest degree. It is held, therefore, to be certain that the moat ancient to-hamra that ever beaneataed a legend to' posterity never saw or heard of a moa, "V 1 - . 1 - .1 I , 1 . v u uie sum usuu i is au obvious lacs that at one time moa swarmed all over tbe island and formed the chief diet of the inhabitants, whoever they were. Innumerable skeletons and'roneg of ,"motr have 'been discovered orle' rtrrs, enJ in place there are cave nulter tfU of. them, the birds having evidently taken refuge there by hundreds from the pursuit of man or some otner foe- Moreover, great collections of moa bones are often oome upon whioh have undoubtedly been cooked in an oven, and with them are found the burnt stones which formed tbe oven, and rude weapons of th hae and sundry utensil ol primitive cookery. Such are the two aides of the controversy as I had beard it wged in scientific eirclea and as tbe young ehiers in Kawana laipai' whare tensely and eloquently described it for my information before proceeding with their debate It was clear to me from tbe speeches and from the sign of assent or dissent among the audience that th party who put tueir faith in the negative testimony of the Tobunga's records were ax first in a large majority, but as the debate proceeded those who contended for the recens extinction of the moa if, indeed, it were ever yet extinct seemed to be (raining ground considerably and likely to sway the whole audience ia the end.
