WATER FRONT - ITEMS. . Belated Steamers Foylemore and Grecian Get In. One Day the Former Made but St Miles and the latter Onlv 26. Dancer of Famine in Coal Relieved by Several Arrivals Yesterday. I The belated steamer Foylemore, Cart Kills, from Hull, ling, and the Allan Ilnur Grecian, Capt Hamilton, from Glasgow, reached port yesterday morning after a severe encounter with tho ' elements. The Foylemore was expected here 10 days ago, and according to her sailing schedule she should have left for Lon-don, the first of last week. She came across in ballast and being quite high out of water presented a good mark for the tiemendotis seas Capt Fills reports that from the time of leaving the river Humber he encountered a succession of northwesterly and southwesterly gales and heavy seas. 1erhaps the worst weather was met with Thursday last, whin the vessel ran Into a fiulous bllxzard. The wind blew with huirloane force for a period of 10 , hours, during which time it was Impossible to keep the ships prow to the wind and sea and she fell otT repeatedly and was forced astern. Home idea of the severity of the storm can t Imagined when it Is known that during that 24 hours the Foylemore made only 34 miles, w title ordinarily she reels off about 2V miles. Several other , days during the passage the log showed that less than 100 knots had been traversed. The Grecian had a similar experience. but being loaded she In better trtm for rough weather. She sailed from Glasgow Jan 13. and was six days late In arriving. During last Thursdays hurricane she made only 26 knots in S hours steaming. On reaching her berth at Mtauc wharf her hows were hvtlv encased In ice. which also extended Into the rigging and capered the forward decks. Although both steamers had a very rough experience neither sustained the Slightest damage. The big German steamer Bethnnta Capt Schmidt, arrived late in the afternoon, after a 15-das passage from Hamburg. She also had a boisterous I passage, hut despite this fact, she made fairly good time. , Another good-sized fleet of pehooners and barges brought in a large amount of coal yesterday, so that the danger of a coal famine no longer exists. Among , t ha .vessels arriving were the flve-ntast-- ad gchooners Gov Ames, Capt Hart, from f Baltimore, and. the Jennie French Rotter, tSipt Potter, from Newport News. Tha latter brought 4n her first cargo. , amounting to 311s tons of coal. She left the bult-lers yard at Camden, Me, a x month age. She made the run from Newport New' in 6s hours. The Gov Ames is the pioneer five-master. She , was detained at Baltimore over a month awaiting her cargo, and earned something like V000 in demurrage. Mall advices received from Barbadoes announce 4 he death of Capt Geo. 1 Slnds, the commander of the American irk Edward L. Mayberry, now on a passage from Buenos Ayres to New York, and which called at Barbadoes , last month. Capt Hinds died suddenly Jan and his remains were burled, at mem. the following day. He was 49 years of aga and was well known In shipping circles In this city. He was a native T of Calais, Me, where a brother and several sisters reside.

This carving was a table top, which represented ail of the wild flowers of Tennessee in a large bouquet In its center. M:ss White carved the wooden petals and stamens and stems from living .flowers, and as the table was to be presented in the Tennessee exposition building, the design was particularly pretty and appropriate.

PRESCRIPTIONS COMPOUNDED. your family, say your parents or grandparents before you, ever draw or carve? No, was the answer. 'I dont know how I Came to do it. My father is a steamboat cook, and I never heard of any of my relatives caring much for this sort of thing. The questioner pondered upon this statement. Here was a sporadlo case of negro talent. Miss White was born in New Richmond, O, "Just a mile and a half from Gen Grants birthplace. she said with a touch of pride, "but we moved to Cincinnati when I was almost a baby. Here again was something to think upon. Not in the picturesque south nor the cultured north have our specimens of negro talent In art come, but from tho rude, vigorous, hurrying west! Paul Iawrence Dunbar, the negro poet and novelist, is a native of Dayton, O. Edmonla Lewis, the sculptress, whose work is famous in America and In Paris, where she now lives, waa born In Ohio, while other western localities have lately produced negro talent also, though In less marked degree. There seems to be ample proof to sustain the theory that the negro, under certain conditions, can achieve remarkable results in art and literature. In the case of Adina White, the small, coffee-colored wood carver, there Is a strain of Indian blood, but no perceptible strain of white with the African. In her case there Is merely the racial temperament, intellectual and emotional, of tropical Africa, tempered by several centuries of American civilization. Adina White has, beside the artistic temperament, the genius of industry. Separated from all of her kith and kin. this brave girl is working here among strangers to earn enough money to "study in Boston, "If only I could make enough to study here and then go abroad, was the reiterated cry of of the girl artist as she spoke of her future, and It seemed as If there must be some way that might be opened fur her toward that goal. Miss Richards, who Is her teacher at present, is anxious to have her pupil attend the life class of the Boston school of art. and is making efforts to accomplish this, hut in a great city like this there are always so many applicants for every place, that it may not be easy to do. Wood carving is inded a rare gift and one that appears to the beet traits in the artist patience, perseverance, stability of effort for wood is not plastic and it requires a strong imagination to evolve dainty fancies out of Its hard, unyielding substance strong imagination and firm, steady fingers. There is a sort of moral education in such life work. We can fancy certain corresponding characteristics growing and developing in the artist as his fingers dav by day. hour bv hour create with mallet and chisel bud and leaf and flower, delicate tracery of vine and cloud and lineaments of face nd figure, out from the unresponsive block of oak or cedar. As Adina White stood over her work, her dark face uplifted and looking outward as if to catch some fleeting Inspiration. the Idealizing Influence of her work was revealed. NO CONTRACT SCHOOLS.

Laws Have Become Complicated With Decisions and Constructions. Spanish War Claims Not Held Up but Were Advanced bj Order. WASHINGTON, Feb 3-C?omml!onef of Pensions Evans was heard today by the house committee on invalid pensions relative to pension legislation. In view of recent hearings of Grand Army delegations ajid others interested In pensions the hearing attracted more than usual interest. Mr Evans expressed the belief that the time had come for a revision of the pension law. The two general laws had become complicated by so many decisions and constructions that he believed It to be essential to have ft general revision in order to get at the real meaning of the law and the desires of congress toward the pensioners. He had, therefore, recommended committee to revise the pension law, and he believed such a body could do its work and report to congress by next December. Mr Evans was asked as to charges that had been made that some special examiners who investigated widow' claims asked insulting questions of these widows. The commissioner vigorously denied these charges. He read from the regulations of Commissioner Black and Tanner on tne subject of inquiries and his own Instructions to examiners to avoid any indiscretion. In connection with a charge that improper questions had been asked an aged widow, Mr Evans read the report of the examiner, denying the charge and -declaring that there was not a word of truth In it. The commtss loners said it was impo slble to frame any law without having some special cases arise which might cause difficulty. He was asaad why the the local medical boards told pensioners a favorable report would be made, ana yet favorable action did not follow at the bureau. . , The commissioner explained that tn local boards are forbidden under tne rules from making known their findlnx But their member, are human and rut urally swayed to tom extent by lO1-" feeling. Moreover, he said, the ft Itself caused difficulty by requiring not only the medical diagnosis but a Kr'neJ, estimate of conclusion and these an not always agree. ,,,.nce Mr Evans spoke of the intelllgeh'jw and ability of those In charge of R- work. As to delays in appeal cases, ne said about 4tr0 were passed on lart year and of these only about 300 resulted a reversal of the original ruling. . Some of the delay had been caused cy the wholesale appealing of printed blanks. Mr Evans personal advocacy of Just and ir,rre pensions. He rernaiked also that usually there were 10 mistakes against tn government to one against the PP' cant, that th latter was quick to tan attention to the mistake in his case. There waa absolutely no truth. ' commissioner said. In the rharge Spanish war claims were being held ui as he had given special instructions advance them. . ,, Th hearing brought out much other detailed information on the admini' lion of pension affairs. At , sion the committee u na n S rn curly X vote of thanks to the coin ndwslonert and in atknowledgin this Mr L j, said he was "always , have sunlight shed upau the working of to pension office. c I '? 1 ,s 1 1 !
