CARTE AND TIERCE. Interest in the Art of Fencing Revived in This City. A Democrat and Chbosicle reporter last evening indulged, for once, in a 1 ttle personal pleasure. In accordance with an invitation from Captain Smith, lie witnessed in the new Walbridge Block an exhibition of fencing, according to the French school, between Captain Smith and an advanced pucil. Although the repor er's wrist bad been chiefly exerc sed in wielding the lead penc 1 ins ead of the foil, the exhibition re-Call d vividly exercises of h s school-boy days, although the methods were somewhat ditfereut. Captain Smith is vtell known in this city, having served as captain of Company A in the Fifty-Fourth regiment, and during 1861-5 on the Uniiel States man-of-war Eolus. While in the navy ha acted as instructor in sword practice. He acquired the art of fencing accord, ng to the French acuo-il under the ce.ebrated masters of fencing, Saranac and Uordou, of New York. He has had mjcb experience in New York, Buffalo, Detroit and other cities. The exhibition laet night was in the nature of instruction, but it demonstra'ed tiat Captain Smith is an adept. His thrusts, parades and demicirchs were executed with lightning-like rapidity, sUowiug that he would be a dangerous adversary in one of tu se combats by which the mercurial Frenchmen set tlo their points of honor. It is understood tfciat a number of young gentlemen are forming a class and have secured the services of Captain Smith as instructor. It is also int imated that a class of young ladies will be formed. During Captan Smith's residence In Buffalo he instructed the officers of Fort Porter in the art of swordsmanship. From the Interest already manifested, it is probable that tbe healthful exercise will become as popular in tuis oity as elsewhere. Those desiring in formation concerning the proposed should address postollice box 470. school A MEXICAN A8TRONOMER. Professor Felipe Valle a Visitor at the Warner Observatory.

TWENTIETH ANNIVERSITY. Veteran Fire Laddies Keunue for Thoroughly Good Time. The twentieth anniversity of the Exempt Firmn'i association was celebrated last evening by a musical and literary enter tainment and supper at its quarters in the Front street City Building. There was a lr' attendance and all went merry as any cumber of marriage bells. Recitations were clven by jo.eptt M. Ueia- vaux and Da Laccy Cr.ttenden in their usual ly excellent manner; the Jo Jo Hocial Clud rendered several gives and choruses, and Joseph B. Praumbuck gave some especially itood zither selections. Ihe supper, whicn was more than good, was aerved under tbe surerintendance of W. Bayer, one of the members. The officers of the association for the en suing year are as follows : President. George W. Aldridse; first vice-president, J. r. Kiilinirbury : second vice-president, Patrick Welch; recording sei're'ary, V. a. w est bury: financial secretary, E. A. Jaquith treasurer. Si.

His Injuries Were Fatal. vTm.Green. the young colored man who fell from ascatlol't at Washington R ok Monday night while taking part in the Corpus Cbristi Church entertain uirot, and was carried to the City Hospital, died at that institution at 8:30 o'clock yesterday morning. He did not regain co sciousnesa after the fall. His in juries developed into paralysis of the left side. Coroner Kleindleust was notified and will hold an inquest at the City Hospital this morning. An autopsy was made on Green's body at tbe hospital last evening. It was found that tbe ku 1 was fractured. A large blood clot was found on his brain. This probably ac counts for tbe paralysis of true left side and his death as well. A Jury Impaneled. Coroner Fharpe last evening summoned a jury to inquire in o tbe circumstances sur rounding the death of Margaret Kra mer, the 1 months old child of Carrie k miner, which occurred Tuesday morning in the Walbridge lilotk on Allen street. After viewing the remains at Kosenbach & Kling- ler's undertaking rooms, the inquest was adjourned to this morning. Coroner bharpi had an au'opsy made, and will exert all his energy and well-known skill to discover ii tbe child's death resulted from other than natural causes. The Burns Anniversary.

HE VIEWED IT AFAR OFF A Reporter's Method of Examining' a Special Hospital CONVENIENT BUT NOT GAUDY Past and Present Conditio of Hope Hospital For Small-pox Cases But Little Used in Later Years Owiug to Vaccination. It may be stated, as a general rule, that when a newspaper reporter i9 assigned to Jo a bit of work be does it, ana usually wnn-out asking superfluous questions regarding the nature of tbe work. For instance, if lie should find an allotment to investigate the natural and acquired resources of a certun unmentionable p aca as a suitable location for a powder manufactory, he would exhibit no surprise. He might, perhaps, take a stroll through Murderers tiow ror the purpose oi taking a few lessons in the vernacular, aoa devote an hour or two to a close examination of the blast furnace at the mjtith of the river with a view to becoming acclimated to a certain extent; but sooner or latr he ould accomplish his object and mute an intelligent, report. There are, however, assignments which suggfSt caution, ana one ol ttiom is lt:e in vestigation into tbe condition or a smaii-pox Not that the average newspaper reporter would not, after innoculating himself with virus from the gentle and youthful Jersey cow, proceed to tbe hospital with as much or more nonchalance than ha would 10 some of the dives of the city; bu'. a deference to tbe feelings and safety of others demands an investigation on tbe lines of "judicious inquiry. ' ' On these lines, therefore, a Democbat AND Chroxiclk reporter yes terday ascertained some facts about Hope Hospital, which has lor several years oeen devoted to the shelter and care of smaii-pox patients. This hospital if situated on tne Kiver r.oaa. south of the city, and between ML Hope Cemetery and the river. It is sufficiently remote from lines of travel to render its situation safe, so tar as communicating. contagious disease is concerned. Un il within tbe past few years, Hope Hospital seems to have merited the name of pest bouse. It was composed of but one room for both sexes, ana tue accommoaauons in m mut ter of bedding were wretched. During the term of Dr. Hovey. as Deal n omcer, ins hospital was materially changed (or the bet ter. Partitions were butit proviaiug lor tue care of male and female patents in different apartments, Bnd providing also a room for tendants. Provision was maae ior pre paring beds for from six to eight patients in each of Its two apartments, and the place mad- habitable. Proper ventilators were also provided, and the hospital placed in charge of a competent keeper. During the past six years there has been com 8' allveiy little occasion to use nuo Hospital, and it is nnderstood that it has deteriorated somewhat, although its present condition is a great improvement over that of former times it has now but one patient. It is evident that the present method of dealing with smaii-pox has much to do with the state of affairs alleged to exist at the hospital. It is now the settled and approved policy or the health authorities to stamp out the epidemic, by means of general vaccination, before it can obtain a foot-boid. So ellicac ous has this treatment been, that the hospital, which was formerly of frequent usi, is now, ior tne reason given, mn- lively tenantless. To this cause pnjstcians ascribe the seeming neglect. From all that could be learned by the re- port-r it would seem that, wane nope Hospital 13 by no means an attractive place of residence, it is adequate for its purpose, so long as cases of small pox are as infrequent as they have beea in later years. in case .the epidemio should obtain afoot hold, however, and it should be found necessary to care for any considerable number of patients, it would be absolutely necessary to provide other and more extensive accomo dations. In the course of inquiry among several nhvuir-inna it was learned, incidentally, that they do not fear an epidemic or tne areaaeu dii.. It has been aemocsrratea mas t varcination will stamp it out. and the remedy has already been applied sjsti- maticaliv. C nseqaently they think that there is little need of employing the hospital to any extent. MORTUARY MATTERS.

WHY DON'T IT FREEZE?" That's What Quite a Number of People Want to Know. The burden of the skating rink man's song just now is with considerable reason, ' Now is the winter of our discontent. ' ' For whan the thermometer persists in registering away up in the "rolling forties" ice-skating is at a heavy discount, and the proprietor of the rink, usual y so urbane and smiling, at this time of the year looks exceeding glum, as he feels in his pocket untrammeled emptiness. There's no use tryin j. has been in readiness for weeks. Tbe steps to the water level, the bouse in which to retreat from the too emphatic pinches of Jack. ' ' whose other name is ' Frost, ' ' the dams to keer in the water, all are there. But one thing is lacking the icy blasts of winter. The proprietor sits iu his office, reads the weather predictions and looks out upon the degerted rink. The white flag, with the teli-fcalii blue square, has been Aunt: aloft from the top of Powers Block, but it has served only to awaken false hopes. There has been skating, tut it has been or deceptive character, aud the lack of good, solid ice baa made it but a poor pleasure. A day or two ago the ice was in fair condition and gave promiue of becoming better. but tbe promise has not been f mulled. The skat ug rink people are not the only ones who are "in tue soup a soup or slush and mud resulting from the mild wintar. The pastime has become popular In this city and there was every evidence that it would hs ' all tbe raga' ' this season. The sales of skates predicted this, and many are the disappointed ones who are longing for a good skate. The proprietors of other amusements have reason to be thankful, however, for the ' 'spiking of the guns' ' of so well sustained an opponent. WHERE IS SAMOA ? Something a Reporter Didn't Know, Found Out, and Thinks Worth. Telling. Two wrecks were stranded upon a bar. They were human wrecks, and the bar was in Exchange Place. The flowing tide bad come in several times, and its effects were unfavorable to equilibrium. The flowing tide had in one case consisted entirely of beer, in tbe other of whisky. These tacts proclaimed tbe nationalities of the wrecks. betier than their colors, which were prom inent, but simitar. One was uerman, tne other American. They were firing broadsides luto each other on tbe subject of Samoa. It is a pity that Prinoa Bismarck and tiecre ary Bayard could not have heard their verbal salvos. They would have gained many valuable points. A reporter in search of an item beard tan row, and went, in looking lor a murder. 'Where is Samoa, anyhow ?' asked one of the interested auditors. A fine sneer of contempt curled tbe reporter's chiseled lip at this display of ignorance, and deigning ijO reply, he hastened back to the office to hunt up a encyclopaedia. There he dis covered that thebamoan islands are the group formerly known aa the Nav. gators islands. That tli j include nine inhabited islands. That they lie about 430 tnile N. E. of the Fiji Islands in the South Pacific ocean. in about latitude 14, longitude liU. in other words, a steamer suiung directly from San Fraocucj to Australia, would reach tbe i-amoan Islands when its voyage was two-thirds over. As the reporter always had a vbkus idea that tiain. a was somewhere in the neighborhood of the ' 4 still vexed Bermudas, " and as Le is firmly convinced that the majority of the publio is as hazy as be was ou tbe subject he has seen fit to print the result of his researches.

SHOE SEWERS ANXIOUS A General Reduction in the Prioa Pair Per Pair. AFFAIRS SOMEWHAT STRAINED A Shoemaker's Opinion of the Proposed Reduction and Its Results Hopes of Averting a Strike or a Lockout. It is now nearly one year since the long struggle between the shoe cutters of this city end the manufacturers came to aa sna. For some reason the spring trade is lata aBj many of the shops have been working os three-quarters time. For the past two dayi it bas been apparent that the relations b. tweeu the employes in certain branch, 0j tbe trade and tbe manufacturers have agtd become strained, and last evening a Dkuq. crat and Chuonicle reporter was detailed to investigate the matter. It was Boon ascertained that the troub'i is between the hand-sewers and th pre. prietors of two of the manufactories. Th price for sewing shoes has ranged from 17 cents to 20 cents per pair. It is claimed bj the operators in this particular branch ot tin manu acture that notice bas been given la one of the shops that a reduction ot 3 cent per pair wid be made at once, and in tin other that the reduction will be much greater. This reduction, it is claimed by th sewers, will have the effect of reducing the weekly wages by from $2 to $4. Reprj. sentatives of the sewers stated to the reporUr last night that, in the two shops referred to, the alternative had been given to the met to accept tbe reduction, or the manufactur. ers would replace the sewers by machines. A well informed operative stated to thi reporter last night that it was understood that similar reductions would be mads It the remaining manulacturiea. He said thtt at that hour It was undecided whether tat men would accept the reduction, but thsrs was a strong probability that they would not. He said that it was true that many et the operatives had not recovered from tin effects of the strike last winter on acooanl of being obliged to work on short lira. When asked what the effect ot the redactioi would be, be said : "I think, if the sewers accept ths redo, tion in these two shops, tbe orders which have been, if I am correctly informed, beid back, will then be dumped into the .bops. It the reduction "goes" in these two shopi, then tbe other shops w 11 follow suit A'Ht the bulk of the orders for May delivery ban been gotten out.then a still further reductlt will be made. It is certain that tbs ma cannot make wages at tbe reduction low proposed, even if they work longer boors," Will the men submit!" was aeked. That is rather a pointed question, " r. plied the man of needles and waxed-sodi, It seems to me that much will depsad on what the men think the motive ii. Many of them, and myself among tbem, think that the reducti n is a matter of retaliation for the strike of last wint r ; that thi manutacturers want to 'get even,' asttiey say. I don't think the men will accept tbi reduction. I don't see how tbey can, and live. Many of tbem are already in debt." Now, " he cont nued, "don't go and quote me as advocating striken. 1 don't want a strike. But what are you going tudof This reduction is almost as bad as no work, and if It is accepted it . will only lead to another reduction, under ths sales threat of putting in machines. " ; 'How many would a strike aSsctl" ! 'Ton know as well as I do it would aflecl tbe trade of tbe entire city. If all branch at the trade sustained the sewers, it would of ooursa throw thousands ot men out if work. " Well, let ns get back to my question-will tbe men take the reduction I' ' Frankly tben, 1 do not believe tbt; will. You understand, I do not spesk bj authority ; you ask my opinion and I giv it to you" straight. If this threat of putting in machines in these two shops is inaaat for a feeler ' from the other shops, with t view to a general reduction In other depsrt-ments, or for retatiatiou, then I should oppose accepting the reduction. ' ' Would that mean a strike I ' Not necessarily. The manufacturer! might go on and put In machines ai tie threaten. ' ' Well!" Of course that would throw the swn in those shops oat of work. Again, well!" Then if the sewers in these two sbopt were supported by the operators In all otb' shops and all other branches, there would certainly be a strike. As I say, there ares good many things I can't tell you about urn business, but I'll give It to you ssraiu., The manufacturers don't want to pu m machines. They can't make fcaod-se" work with machines, and their trade wt haad-aewed work. 1 think it is mersij feeler. and I goess its done as mucfl m get back on us as anything else. ' ' Other members of the trade were last night but were very reticent regar wi any action taken. Enough was learned ever to demonstrate the fact that, if tP are not taken to adjust the dithculties, i breaoh will widen rapidly. The suggestion made to each one interviewed last nigm that the matter be placed in bands of the State Board ot Arrow tion, was variously received. The Dope -generally expressed that a strike or lockosl ould be avoided. Ihe idea ot ar.iw-- in the manner suggested, did not meet w. an enthusiastic reception generally, aim"", it was admitted by some that it was won trying. There are many cool-Deaatw conservative men among the operaw.- it is evident that no steps will B " without careful consideration. PURELY PERSONAL.
