The colonel Was not anxions to talk touch on the business \vhioh took him to the East* tout allowed, in teply to a question ft pm the reportef, that it Was in connection with the Kotthern Pacific deal. He said that thete was little that could be said at this time. He finally consented to tell the reporter all that was ready for publication. "The Northern Pacific is trying to get Mr. Hill, and not Mr. Hill the Northern Pacific," said the colonel. "The Northern Pacific stockholders have put the road into bankruptcy and the bondholders are trying to put it on its feet again. They have decided that Mr. Hill is the man to do this, and have made certain overtures to him." Are you at liberty to state what tjhere overtures are?" he was asked. "No, I am not," was the reply. "All I can say is that they have reached an agreement with Mr. Hill, and both sides are satisfied." "Then yon think that in time Mr. Hill will have entire charge of the road?" "I certainly do." "How soon will the change made?" "That I cannot say now.

Judge Hnnford Refuses to Cite Northern I'aclflo Receivers. SEATTLE, Wash., Aug. 17.—In the United States circuit court the attorneys for the receivers of the Northern Pacific gained a point and lost a point in the fight against them by Silas A. Pettit, representing President Brayton Ives and the American stockholders. As indicated there was filed a motion that T. F. Oakes, H. C. Payne and H. W. Rouse, receivers, William H. Cromwell, general counsel, and J. W. Kendrick, general manager, be cited to appear in court Aug. 82 and produce telegrams, books and other documents necessary to petitioner, in order to sustain his charges of collusion between the Adams men, the receivers, Judge Jenkins and J. J. Hill, and also to es tablisb. the fact that the circuit court for the Eastern district of Wisconsin Had No Jurisdiction of the case. Judge Hanford denied the motion, leaving counsel the privilege of renewing it later if the case should warrant. The other motion was to amend the answer filed two years ago. In the original bill the 15th paragraph alleges that the Northern Pacifice railroad has property in Judge Jenkins' district and the answer admits the allegation, while the affidavit filed a few days ago alleges there is no property of the company in the district and never been. Counsel wished to correct this incompatibilty of terms. This motion was vigorously opposed by ex-Senator Spooner, but Judge Hanford held that the parties had the right to define the issue and granted the motion to amend. The application to oust the receivers and appoint new ones is -set for Aug. 23. STRONG LANGUAGE Sow Natives o* the Bark Continent Stake their Spirituous liBtetages. To tho natives ot Africa of tho present j time beer prdinwd from malt and hops is ( unknown. Tot ihorn exists no lack of in- i toxicating*among th«so:w<>f the I durk continent. They aro not ryqttired to wait for tho Uro watt* of tho Europeans to be sent to them. They understand how to prepare spirituous beverages of their own, and they also become intoxicated by thorn. Tho Africans make wino and boor, but neither grape juice is used for the former nor malt extract for tho latter. Palm loaves of different kinds, bananas and millet furnish the raw materials. Palm wine Is inado from tiio sap oozing from the cut off blossom stems of the oily palm tree and of tho cocoa tree. It is n pleasant, refreshing beverage and sufficiently known. From the fruit of the banana tree a beverage is made in Africa which they drink there as wino or boor. Banana beer is chiefly used by tho natives of Uganda, a country bordering on Lako Victoria. The pe.oplo there arc fond of such beer, and when Emin Pasha went to Rubaga to meet King Mtcsa he wrote in his diary, "This is a real beer trip, from village to village, or rather from boor pot to beer pot, we aro marching oh." In that country tho manufacture of the banana beverage is very extensive. Ur. Fclkin, an English physician, who former- i ly livod there, describes tho different kind? I o'f the banana beverages. Ho makes a dis- ! Unction between banana beer and bauan.-i wine. According to his description, "mubisi, a cooling banana wine, is manufactured in tho following manner: A big hole is dug in tho ground, lined with banana leaves, filled with unripe bananas and kept covered by mats and earth until tho fruit has become completely ripo. Then the bananas aro slit, mixed with flno hay and placet! in a large, boatliko, wooden trough, which at one end has an emptying pipe. After tho addition of some water tho whole is thoroughly mixed by the.ham! or by short wooden sticks. Thereupon the trough is covered with banana leaves, and tho mixture is left standing for about one or two hours. After tho expiration of that time it is taken out, and through gltis? sieves poured into large calabashes. It ii then ready for uso and represents a sweet agreeable and not Intoxicating beverage But if tho "mubisi" is left standing fo three days it undergoes a fermentation and becomes a slightly acid, refreshing beverage, which is strongly intoxicating. —Chicago Times-Herald. OF THE MANUFACTURE CF THE WHITE KIND. A BOWL OF KAVA. tip to a <><*l;mj Point the Proper is Jnst the Same :M la M.-.Uinpr Whisky—Why Uncle Sam Doesn't All<vi* "Worms" to Be fsecl In Vinegar Factories. Vinegar is of two or three different kinds. Thn most expensive is made from fed wino and is of a deep purple color. It Is strong in ac iti_ S o strong, indeed, that it fairly bites the tongue. It costs about 40 cents a gallon. Then there is the cider vinegar of farm fame, and it is the most popular of any for general household use. It retails at from 12 to 10 cents a gallon, and it; may bo said in passing that some disreputable concerns make a variety of "elder" vinegar that Is wholly guiltless of apples. Great quantities of white wine vinegar arc also made, usually from corn and rye. It Is perfectly colorless, very sharp to the tasto and Is usually used for making pickles and condiments of various kinds. The process of manufacturing this white wino vinegar is most interesting. In the first place, the manager starts out just as if he were going to make genuine corn whisky, but when ho gets part way through with the work ho suddenly switches off, and the product is vinegar. The corn and rye come to the side of the factory in car; and are elevated to the top floor, where they go into big bins. In the morning, when the superintendent gives the word, o workman pulls the slide from a spout that leads down through four stories and intc the top of the cooler, a huge iron boilei holding 100 bushels. The corn comes rattling down, and it is soon boiling away under n steam pressure of 00 pounds. At the end of two hours it has been reduced to mash—a well known whisky term— and is quite toothsome enough to tempt any cow homo from a Juno pasture. It is now blown through a pipe leading up stairs to the great mashtubs holding 8,000 gallons each. Hero about 50 bushels of malt, fresh from the maltsters and ground to a pulp in a little mill on the next floor, is dumped in, and two awkward paddles begin to revolve, churnine the mass until it looks like tho surface ci a geyser. The cooking of the corn separated the starch, and the addition of tho malt, together with a temperature of 148 degrees, turns tho starch into sugar. At this period of tho process tho mash has a really sugary smell, like molasses candy on the back ol tho kitchen stove.

CHICAGO, Aug. 19. —Another sensational chapter in the Northern Pacific receivership case was opened in a decision by the United States court of appeals, This is the court of final jurisdiction. The opinion was prepared by Judge Caldwell and assented to by Judges Sanborn and Thayer, Referring to the original appointment of Northern Pacific receivers by Judge Jenkins, the opinion says; "It is obvious that if an individual or private business corporation had conveye4 its property to another for the same purpose and upon the same trusts that the court was asked to take this property and did take it, the law would have stamped the conveyance as one made to hinder and delay creditors, and fraudulent and void for the reason," Ai4» the Iveij Interest. Under any circumstances this would be strong language, 'When used by the court of highest jurisdiction in we United States it will undoubtedly b§ the basis py tbe Ives interest m the Northern.

Kava is tho native drink, and its use and tho manner and ceremony of its preparation being among tho most ancient customs of Polynesia it merits, I think, a short description. Kava is an indigenous tree, moro or loss plentiful throughout the South Sea islands, tho root of which is employed in tho manufacture of the drink. When visitors aro present, much ceremony is observed in its preparation. A beautiful round bowl of dark colored wood is produced, its interior shining with a blue enamellibe coating, caused by the deposll of the root. Generally speaking, the best bowl is the property of tho village,' and much care is taken and time spent in polishing and preserving the enamel in the interior. Throe young girls, with shining white teeth, chosen usually from tho "belles" of the village, scat themselves around the bowl, each having a piece of tho kava root. This they proceed to break up into small pieces, and putting them into their mouths chow tho dry root till it is reduced to a pulp, which is placed from timo to time in the bowl. A sufficiency haying been thus prepared, water is poured in and the whole mixture stirred up. Bunches of fine fiber are then drawn through tho liquid to strain out any small pieces of she root which'* may remain. Tho drink is now complete and is passed around' in cups oi coooauut shell to the chiefs and principal people of the assembly in order of rank. On my first attempt at drinking kava I was strongly reminded of soapsuds, but this unpleasant idea wore off after a timo. A refusal to driuk or even not to drain the cup is considered a grave impoliteness. The solution of the kava root is nonintox- ioating; but, taken in excess, produces a loss of power in tho lower limbs. Many of tho European residents drink it regularly, but of course it is then prepared in a different manner.—Westminster Keviow. 1 s churned for three or four hours cold water is turned Into a coil of pipes iii the bottom of tho hugo tub to cool tho mash. In the meantime sorno workmen have been preparing tho yeast in a little room at one side. Malt and ryo aro boiled together in a copper lined kettle holding 300 gallons, and a little of tho yeast ferment being added tho plant begins to grow. When the process has gone far enough, just tho right proportion of the yeast is taken anil "planted" in the mash tub, where without moro ado it begins to make itself felt. Now the mash is allowed to slide down through a pipe to tho fermenting tanks, where it sizzles and bubbles away for 72 hours, hard at work fermenting. Tho al coholic .spirits.aro being • slowly extracted by the "working 1 ' of the sugar. Thus fa*- tho process has been almost Identical with, whisky making. A busy chugging link pump now sends the mash up stairs to tho still—real whisky stills, except in the use of "worms', 1 01 coils of pipo for collecting and condensing the alcoholic spirits. A "worm" would be used in vinegar manufacture, but Uncle Sam is afraid that some day a very well meaning charge of corn might by some mistake turn to whisky instead of vinegar. Uncle Sam always looks after such things in a prompt and businesslike way. Tho alcohol is forced out of the mash and into tho still by means of steam, which rapidly vaporizes it. Tho pipo in the still is surrounded by cold water, which quickly condenses the alcohol and collects it below In a receptacle. All the rest of thomash—"slops," as it is known to the vinegar man and tho whisky man—is carried off to one side, whero it is stored up ready to sell to the stock raiser for cattle feed. It contains all the corn except the alcoholic parts, and it therefore makes very rich food. The spirits aro now pumped to the gep- erators, tho only distinctive vinegar ranking devices in tho whole process. .These consist of tall, cylindrical tanks made of whito wood and bound with iron hoops, Speaker, consisting of selections in poetry, and prose suitable for recitation, whicn,as the author says in his introduction, "are not chosen on account of their newness, an t from theit 1 Intrinsic merit and their adaptability as exercises."

As showing the peculiar danger from water hammer in tho caso of high pressure steam pipes, a Gorman engineer reports that ho experimented with, a view to determining the relation of the two, A pipe 13 inches in diameter, one-fourth inch thick and 21 feet long, blank flanged at one end, was for this purpose partially filled with water, and at tho other end steam was supplied through a 8 inch pipo, while three pressure gauges at equal distances were screwed to the pipe and on to the blank flange. When steam of five atrnos' phpres, 73 pounds per square inch, was ad* mitted suddenly above the water, the pros- sure gauges indicated respectively pressures of 486 pounds, 114, 199 and 114 pounds per square inch, When steam entered slowly again above the water, hardly any concussions and abnormal pressures were noticed. Steam was then admitted through a valve of 3 inches diameter, and the steam, at ft pressure of'five atmospheres, now entered below the water, and the concussion was so violent that the threads of four of the nuts were shorn, off, the fourth gauge placed there was prushoa, while tho other gauges indicated pressures of 488, 886 a.nd 933 pounds per square inch,. They extend from floor to ceiling, with an appliance on top for allowing/ the alcohol to trickle in and a cook at tho bottom through which tho vinegar may be drawn off. \ Several floors are covered with these generators as thick as they can stand, atod the visitor who goes among them is compelled to sneeze in -deference to the pronounced acidity of tho atmosphere, \ The tanks inside are filled from top to bottom with beach shavings—nothing more. When the alcohol drips in at the top, it spreads over the shavings, where the air has ready access to it. The oxygen, pounces upon it and changes it without^ wore ado into ascetic acid, or vinegar, in\ which condition it runs out at tho cook and into a trough that carries it down to the next floor into a huge storage tank, The shavings in the, generators are merely for the purpose of providing a great amount of surface over which the spirits must flow. / ' x s ., . ,, After having seasoned for a'time in the tanks the vinegar is pumped out into, ^barrels, Jabeled and sent all over tho country,, to the pickle manufacturers, Every bushel pf porn makes about four gallons of white wino vinegar, which sells all the way from 7 to JO cents ft gal}oq,--rOftioago Record, find it more convenient to pay subscription at their home bank, All business coming through these banks! will be given prompt attention.
