General Lew Wallace eald to an la^ dlannpolla Journal reporter Saturday concerning "Trilby:" I admire the book Immensely. 1 think It a delight- ul story. 'I don't find anything bad iboutlt. His true the girl is an artist's model, and sits with her feet inoovered while the students put the outlines on tho canvas. But all the while there Is an innocence BO sweet n its childish simplicity about the girl that it robs the character of anything offensive to me. I like the style of Du Maurler, and consider •Trilby' one of his best creations." Concerning the talk of dramatizing his famous novel "BenHur" General Wallace eaid that the novel IB a dram, atlo itrposslbility. •I am aware of tho difficulties that would present themselves in an effort to dramatize 'Ben Hur,'" he said. Alexander Salvinl, the younger, talked to me several years ago about putting the story on the stage. He thought It could be dramatized successfully. L» ivrence Barrett wanted to stage It also, but I could not permit it. It would be an absurd spectacle, that of ihowlnj? the chariot race with native figures. It could not be done. Then another dlSoulty would bo In giving the crucifixion. You can readily see that It would not do." FREMONT MONUMENT It Was Designed by Mrs. Clio Hinton Huneker. Beantlfnl Statue of tbc PathUncler to B« trectod on the D»nfcs of the Hud»on at n Cost of Ten Thou- The Associated Pioneers of the Territorial Days of California, who recently solicited competitive designs for the Gen. Fremont statue, have selected as most appropriate and artistic that submitted by Mrs. Clio Hinton Huneker, of this city, says the Sew York Herald.. In specifying as to the nature of the design the committee requested that the story of the great rock on Fremont peak, where Gen. Fremont enfrraved the cross as a symbol of the Christian faith, should be told fti an artistic and impressive manner. Designs were submitted by several well-known sculptors in various sections of the country, and the subject matter of the 'design was expressed in various ways, but none was as simply and at the same time as artistically carried out as Mrs. Huneker's. The figure of Gen. Fremont is to be of bronze eight feet in height, and mounted on a stone pedestal of naturally roueh rock, fourteen feet in height, with a bronze panel, twelve feet long, at its base. On the panel is a bas-relief of the exploring party, headed by the "Pathfinder," making their way to the spot whore Gen. Fremont carved the cross. This scene commemorates Fremont's first expedition across the continent in 1S42, when the explorers made the ascent of what has since been no.rned Fremont peak, now in Wyoming-, and which by act of legislature has beem reserved as a state park. Returning to their camp of deposit near a great, rock Gen. Fremont wrote: "Here, not unmindful of the custom of early travelers and explorers in our country, I engraved on that rock of the far west a symbol of the Christian faith. I made on the hard granite the impression of a large cross, which I covered with a black preparation of iudia rubber, well calculated to resist the influence of wind and rain." The remains of Gen. Fremont were interred in Rockland cemetery, near Piermont, on the Hudson river, on November 2:3 of last year, under the aus- tiices of the Associated Pioneers of the MUS.

C., member of parliament for Carlisle, elected to succeed Sir Arthur \Vellesley Peel as speaker of the bouse of commons, was born in London in 1S35 and was educated at Trinity college, Cambridge. He was president of the Cambridge Union and was called to the bar at the inner temple in 1SOO. He became queen's counsel in 1S77 and bencher of his inn in 1S79. He was appointed recorder of Wigan in 1SSG and unsuccessfully contested Whitehaven in 1SSO and Highest of all in Leavening Fowcr.—Latest U. S. Govt Report AFTEK three days' deliberation the jury In the famous Morrison will case Richmond yesterday afternoon found for the plalntilfs. The finding gets aside the will. Owing to tbe length of: time the jury remained out it was feared that a disagreement would be the only result of this celebrated trial lasting more than four months. The Richmond Item in commenting on the case thus refers to.ek- President Harrison, one of the counsel for the plaintiffs: "The public as well as professional career of Benjamin Harrison may or may not be at an end. There are millions of people In this republic who will regret it If it shall now close. But whether it does or not, it is true that this great hearted, simple, earnest and honest man never was BO near the hearts of the citizens of Richmond he ia today—as he leaves for his old home at Indianapolis, to take up again a Ufa made lonely by that dread word "p«tea."

In addition his shooting snita lerritofal Days of California, after which that association, in cooperation with the companions of the military orders of the Loyal Legion of the different states, took measures to provide a suitable monument to his memory. Bear Admiral R. W. Meade, president of the pioneers'association, and John D. Townsend are of the committee having the monument in charge. The location of the plot in which it will _be placed is one of the most commanding and beautiful of any along the entire stretch of the Hudson river. It is situated on a plateau five hundred feet above Tappan Zee, and the monument to be erected will be visible from Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, Tarrytown, Sing- Sing and other points far up and down the eastern bank of the Hudson, and -will be plainly in sight of the old Fremont borne, near Tarrytown. Mrs. Huneker will receive SIO.OOO for the work. The talented and fortunate young , uci _„ _, sculptress, Clio Hinton Huneker, whose '. queen) aa first great work this statue will be, was . a pupil of St. Gaudens. although before she advanced to his class she had for years been under the tutelage of her mother, Mrs, Howard Hinton, from whom she inherited her talent for modeling. She was born at Rhinebeck-on- the-Hndson about twenty-four years ago, and is the wife of James G. Huneker, of New York. In her studio in Carnegie building a grand piano will be moved into a corner and the chandeliers removed entirely to make room for the immense work tho sculptress will build to the ceiling, and which she expects to complete by next fall. "I bcran to model when I was two years ofd," said Mrs. Huneker in an interview, "and well remember the little cherries I patted in my hands and then stuck steins into them, I could take a plaster mold of my nurse's face, as I had seen my mother do in her work, and later at" six years I attempted to model a doll on what I deemed more natural linos than the regulation doll of my childhood. When an arm or a leg broke off I could patch it on with fresh clay. I cannot remember a time when I was not modeling, and I went to St. Gaudens prepared for an ad- mnced course by my mother." •WILLIAM COUTVT GULLY, Q. C., SVEAXER OF TITE HOUSE OF COMMONS. 1S85. He has sat for Carlisle since 1SSO. Mr. Gully is a liberal, supporting Mr. Gladstone's Irish policy. Mr. Gully will get an annual salary of £5,000 (820,000), a pension of £-1,000 (820,000) afterward, even if he occupies the chair only an hour, and a peerage, with precedence meanwhile as "the first commoner iu England." The little known story of his antecedents makes his advancement romantic. Itis grandfather, the New York World correspondent is informed, was in youth a well-known prize fighter, but by his innate ability he recommended .himself not only beyond the prize ring but in later life to parliament. His son, the father of the present member, was a distinguished physician, but became involved in the celebrated Bravo poisoning case of twenty years ago. Mrs. Florence Bravo, young and handsome, was tried for poisoning her husband, n rich and elderly barrister. The prosecution suggested that her motive was a desire to marry Dr. Gully. The doctor died only a year or two ago, but he retired from practice after this trial. His son had a large legal practice. Ho is greatly esteemed for his lofty character, and has the dignified, imposing presence considered indispensable in the speaker of the house of commons. ^ ____ TO MARRY_W1LHELMINA. S»ie-CnburB'» Heir Likely to Wed Hol"""' .-•— land's YounR Monarch. The young Queen Wilhelmina of Holland is likoly to be betrothed to Prince Alfred of Saxe-Coburg-Gothfi, eldest son and heir of the duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (more generally known as the duke of Edinburgh), according to the New York World. ' The little monarch of the Dutch is not yet fifteen years old, and a very bright, intelligent girl, merry-hearted ••.end fuU of mischief. She is the last scion of famous house of Orange, •founded by the great William of Nassau. Her father was William 111. and her mother, Queen Emma, is regent during her daughter's minority. Prince Alfred, the reported bridegroom-elect, is twenty years old and _a handsome, intelligent youth. He is Queen Victoria's grandson, his father, the duke of Edinburgh, being the second son of the English monarch. In May and June the young queen is to bo given an outing in England in order to introduce her to her "aunt" Victoria is called by the Important for Some curious details bnve been published regarding the wardrobe of the prince of Wales.

Bleile, of J?the Ohio state university, has been making with regard to the effects of electric shocks upon animal organism theory can v >, r ---— suits obtained. This theory is a com- '^monly.accepted. It has been supposed that the cause of death in cases of electrocution was the breaking' down of the tissues. But the elaborate experiments which Prof. Bleile has made dunn* to* last month or more leave no doubt in his mind that death results from a very different cause, fie has found byes-- perimenting with a large number of dog-s that an electric shock of sufficient intensity to cause death results in a contraction of the arteries so that they refuse to perform their functions. This throws the bloocl from the veins upon the heart, and virtually drowns the operation of that orjjan. A FORGOTTEN KING. ,0ne« He Filled » Pluce. Hot Now H« 1» Unknown. Frances II., once king of Naples, passed aivay up in the Austrian Tyrol recently, says the Buffalo Courier. It is a striking commentary on the march of events that few people of this generation remember anything about him. For thirty years he has had no more to do with shaping the course of Naples than had a citizen of the United States; for he belonged to the old order which passed away when Garibaldi fought and Cavour planned. After his overthrow in 1SC1 he attempted to org-anizo revolts against the new Italy, but success did not attend him. He became forthwith an anachronism in Italian history. Francis was born in 1S30 and suc- -ceeded his father. Ferdinand II., as kin"- of Naples in IS5S. Like the youaff czar, he bt-<?an his reign by liberating- prisoners, but hopes that he would remove the abuses of his father's reign were soon disappointed. Then came the onset of Garibaldi. The king fled before the attack of the republican soldier, and, with his queen and f amity, took refuge in the fortress of Ga- etu, which fell after a siege, during which the queen, a Bavarian princess, displayed notable courage. Francis' reign was short and tumultuous and its sud'~den termination was a deep disap-, pointment to an ambitious man. The misfortune of this king was that he appeared on the scene at the time when the Italian national spirit was ready to express itself in action, under the lead of Sardinia. Particularism had' bud a long day in Italy. The little states were extremely jealous of one another, and up to this time no cohesive force had been found. That the states of the peninsula did well in drawing- together into a more powerful kingdom there can be no question. Italy is still in a bad way in many respects, but she is far better off than she would have been had she continued to divide her strength by upholding a group of small states like Naples. BURIED IN JEWELS. The Mae nl(lcent Ornament* of «om» Dn- unrthcd Muuimlnn. The following most curious account of a remarkable discovery appears in the Academy, which says: "IT. Villiers Stuart writes to the secretary of the Egyptian exploration fund from Cairo, under date March 4, as follows: 'A few days ago there were discovered at Dashour the graves of two princesses of the twelfth dynasty intact. The coffins had moldcred away, and the mummies lay each with a coronet on her head, and wearing other jewelry. When an attempt to move tho mummies was made they fell to fragments. The jewelry is very beautiful. One of the coronets was, in fact, a wreath of forget- me-nots, and of precious stones, mounted in gold stems. At intervals occurred Maltese crosses and precious stones set in gold. This lovely wreath was as perfect and looked as fresh as on the day it was made—a couple of centuriftB before the time of Abraham—more than four thousand years ago. It illustrates a passage in the poetic epitaph on the funeral pall of Queen Is-em-Kheb: '.'She is armed with flowers every day." I visited Dashour and saw, in situ, the sarcophagus in which these treasures were found, as also that of the other princess. She also had a lovely coronet, fitted with a socket in which was inserted a spray of various flowers made in jewels, with gold etems and gold foliage. Besides these, there are necklaces, bracelets, armlets, anklets, daggers, charms, etc. These most interesting discoveries are due to the energy and .sagacity of M. de Morgan, director general of the Egyptian antiquities, ably seconded by Mme. de Morgan, hi" gifted wife.' " ^ BANQUETS AND DINNERS. -A Great D*al of Sloney Spent In Now York for The«e Affairs. No statistician has ever turned his attention to making a record of the vast number of banquets and dinners held in New York during a period of twelve months, remarks the Advertiser of that city. The amount of money expended on such affairsin Gotham would astonish even the man of figures. Thi, conclusion has been reached that New York is rapidly getting to be a community of epicures. Paris is celebrated the world over as a city whose people know better than any others how to live, but New York is making such rapid strides in Jiis direction that the gay French capital will have to look to its laurels. The figures as to the cost of public banquets given at the big uptown hostelries during a season are simply prodigious. No one who has not examined into the subject would imagine that they aggregate the vast sums they do. How many people know what one million dollars really is, and how many things can be accomplished with such a sum? This amount is.expended every year in providing- the viands and wines " -itertainments for those who like *to dine well together at public banquets. These figures do uot include. the vast number of private dinners- given by the rich and exclusive people • who find it more convenient to dine • their friends at hotels than in their- own houses. ___ A Fait Steamer. Out in the state of Washington there- is a steamboat which lets no grass grow • under her feet (if the Hibernian editor- may be allowed a figure of speech). It. is the Flyer, a screw steamboat, 200- feet long, carrying passengers on Pug«t sound. She ran 6S.C95 miles during- the- year 1S94, which is believed to bo one- of the best records ever made by a boat- ol that kind. This vessel makes four- round trips daily between Seattle and. Tacoma, 27^ miles, or 220 miles a day. The round trip of 55 miles is made in. three hours. The distance between, these two cities by rail.is.about 40 > miles, but the Flyer makes such good time and is so punctual that she is said. to be more popular than the railroad trains. The aggregate of lost time- during the year is said to have been- only 43 minutes. ,„ .~. —Tamp. The spectacle of a steamship taking a flyin" loap down a sheer descent of ' sixteen feet is an unusual one and may be fairly described as "thrilling." This is what a big steamer did on the Manchester ship canal recently—smashed its way through a pair of gates weigh- in"-three hundred tons each, sending-, one to the bottom and wrenching the.- other half off its sockets, a=d itselt took a leap of sixteen feet to the next?THE FINEST LINE OF SPRING SUITINGS To be Found in the City at W D CRAIG'S 428 BROADWAY 2nd Floor.
