A» this critical period the utmost care Is neceaaary. Tho making of contracts Involving a quarter of a million of dollars is not child's play. The work should be in the hands of the beet business men in the city. Tho directory has the confidence of the public and tbo selection of President should be mado solely with that in view. Tho man who is Impulsive or hasty, who Is not accustomed to weigh every cent of expenditure or who has enemies who will use his promotion to defeat the project has but one duty and that Is to decline all offers of promotion. This is not a personal matter; it is a public matter and tho whole public should be con, sldorod. There is another duty. Tho man who is called upon to take upon himself the work yet to be done owes a solemn duty to tho public which he cannot avoid. This is the situation today. The Journal has urged these subscriptions; it has urged their payment and Its duty is clear and plain no matter who for a tlmo falls to recognize it and DO matter what enemies it may make. It can not remain quiet and allow mistakes to be made. It has no personal feelings in the matter. It Is a warm friend to every subscriber. There is no politics in it for it will tavor a man the people want regard- loss of politics. It is simply performing its duty to the public and it asks those who in their haste are advocating ono man only over the objection of scores of citizens to stop and reiloct a moment. It asks thorn to consider that it is tho whole people who must be considered, not one man, and it asks thorn to come out tonight determined to drop their personal fight and to unite in an effort to make a Great Britain's LHtait Acquisition In th« Kouth (if ATriuii.

He was originally a newspaper reporter and corresponded fur the London Times during the Uusso-Turkish war, but subsequently abandoned journalism for novel writing, u-hich he found to be more profitable. One o f his most widely siiccossltil efforts was "Coals of Fire," n collection of short stories published in 1SSI. Perhaps Mr. Murray could now adit an interesting- chapter from his own experience. milaud. It is a country of rich valleys and hills and is well watered, the principal river being that called the Um- Zimvuha or St. John's river, which rises in the DrakeTisbcrg. This river possesses an excellent port, which was annexed to Cape Colony in 188-1. The Pondoraosi are divided into numerous tribes, of which the principal are tho Ama-Koriffwe, the Ama-Kong- •wela, the Ama-Kobola, the Ama- Kwera and the Araa-Xogati, etc. They live in villages in the fruitful valleys of their country, and, thanks to the distance which separates them from Capo Colony, they have been able to maintain themselves in a comparative state of independence. The total population is estimated at 200.000 persons, The Ptindomosi tribe under the chiefs Undetshwa and L'mhlnnhlo and some of the most powerful clans, in alliance with the Tembus, took up arras at the outbreak of tlie Jiasuto war against the government of Cape Colony. The insurrection was eventually suppressed and a resettlement of the country was effected. Sir J.artlc Krero in 1S73 is- Bued a proclamation in which Umgikela, the paramount chief of the Pondos, for breach of his treaty engagements, ceased to be recognized as such, and the port of the St. John's river was vested in Cape Colony. ITmgikela, however, was permitted to continue as chief of Eastern Pondoland, and a resident was deputed to aet us the rep-, rescntative of the government o£ Cape Colony in that country, Umgikela died in the autumn of 1887. aud in the following spring his son Sigcan, the present paramount ebieftain, was elected as his successor. The port of St. John's is said to be destined to become tho prcat emporium for trade between East London and Durban, The river at its mouth is nearly 700 yards wide. JOSEPH W. MEDILL. Tho Gr<vit f.'lilr.i^i> Killtur [n Now a Cltl- 7.cn of Cullforuhi. Joseph Medill, known all over the world as the editor of the Chicago Tribune, is not a native of the United States, lie was born of Irish parents, April 0, !S'j:j, in St. Johns, N. Ii. In 1831 his father arid mother removed with their family to northern Ohio, At Mo-Bsillon. the homo of Crank Coxcy, he studied law, and in November, iy-I(!, was admitted to practice at the bar at New Philadelphia, O. Upon Ills admittance ho formed a partnership with tleorp-e \V. Mcllvane, after* ward chief justice of tlie Ohio supreme court. Law, however, was not to Mr. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report y Baking — Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE Mcdill's taste and did not satisfy his longings. So in ls-;0 he moved to Coshoeton, O., and began publication of the Weekly Republican. This was so successful that be begun to desire a larger field. Accordingly in IS~>2 he moved to Cleveland and established a daily paper which lie called the i'orcst City. This is still in existence under the title of the Cleveland Leader. About this time Mr. Medill helped to found the republican party. In 1K55, he, together with Dr. C. H. Ray, of Galena, bought the Chicago Tribune, then a struggling, unprofitable- daily, j successive stations, men stood to guide their glistening- shoulders and cast strong shadows oo their rugged faces, as with suspense magnified by ignorance and unrelieved by excitement they did their part. The main engines worked with steady rhythmic stroke. On tlie platforms, at the reversing gear, at every valve and throttle, were stationed men to make immediate response to every command, to meet an emergency with appropriate action. The oilers moved here and there, filling-cups, feeling- and CMimining- every journal, rod, and crank. Cadets were placed at the voice-tubes and annunciators to remain in constant communication with the conning- tower. Everywhere, and in charge of all, the veteran chief engineer moved, a priucipal assistant in charge of each engine, and another in charge of the fire-rooms. Upon him was tlie responsibility of maintaining seventeen knots until the issue of battle was decided, and his sharp critical eye, as it fell upon his engines and his men, was tilled with tlie gravity of tho I occasion. The eng-ineer'sdivfsion wasprotected j from shell, but not from two other i dreaded weapons—the ram and torpedo. A Whitehead striking below the armor belt might burst with tremendous force through double bottom and coal-bunkers, or a grinding steel prow, backed by tiie momentum of thousands of tons, might crasli irresistibly through armor, beams and machinery to the very heart and vitals of the ship. These were possible disasters, which might not even be threatened, and which, if threatened, might be avoided by coolness and skill in mancuvring; but they would be destructive, perhaps overwhelming, if they did occur. The men at the guns were sure to have a certain proportion of death and wounds from bullets and shells. Those below would escape this danger, and probably other dangers; but there was always the chunceof a catastrophe. The "powder division" provided ammunition and controlled the hoists which conveyed shell ami powder to the guns of the battery.

No one knows hotter than the Journal who have done efficient work. Some men have raised thousands of dollars of subscriptions, some have contributed money freely. These things out no figure. Tho question is what man by his safe, careful, coolheaded business methods is best qualified to oversee the contracting and expenditure, having tho unanimous public confidence and friendships so that all the subscriptions will bo paid promptly. Tho Journal has been sadly misrepresented and misjudged in this matter and it appeals to the fairmiDdcd and unprejudiced citizens for approval of its course. It has no tmmity toward any ono and socks only the best interests of the public. NOVELIST IN TROUBLE. The of Domeltlc Trluls nnd Sorrow* I>nvlil ChrlNtlo Murray. It isn't an uncommon thing" for novelists to appwir in police courts—as spectators. A police court is an excellent place in which to study the searay Bule of human nature, and Charles Dickens, Charles Rondo, newspaper reporters and other brig-lit writers of fiction have often availed themselves of its advantages. It has remained for the British novelist. David Christie Murray, however, to take an active part in police court proceeding's as a principal in a pending case. Mr. Murray was up in jiow street the other day to answer a complaint against him broiig-lit by his wife, who charged him with nnanclonmcnt and non-support.

Under tho MoHugh law It ia claimed that there will bo no vacancies until the flret Monday in September and that thp.present officers will hold until that time. ThiBquee. tion remains to be settled. Those elected, D. H. Chase, City Atttornoy; C. D. Sellers, Chief of the Fire Department and Rudolph Bercdt are well known to the citizens of Logans* port. George K. Jamison, though long a resident, is not so well known on account of his strict attention to his work. He is an employe at the Pan Handle shops and was Indorsed, W. B. Rea came gansport three years ago as glneer on tho Chicago Pipe Lice. He located hero and platted and laid off tho Woodlawn addition near tbo Pan Handle shops. Tho nominees are all (food men.

Those selected will prove efficient servants of the people and will meot'wlth gen. eral commendation. Shortly before the expiration of his j its membi-rs were comiilctoly protected by tilt; ship's heaviest armor, and upon the berth-deck thoy were partially protected by the lighter sido armor extending above tho bolt. Tin; t-n-pedo rooms, four in number, were protected by li£ht armor. Ono of tlicni \v.-is n.ft und one forward, with fixed tubes, dis- char^-ing- their torpedoes in line with the keel. The other two were on the quarters, their tubes ranging 1 forward to threaten any ship attempting- to ram. A crew in eaeb room adjusted the torpedoes, put on its ii^litin£ hea.d, and upon placing it in tho tube attached its percussion fuse. Tho torpedoes could be discharged from the several rooms or from tile connina- tower. Tlie ship carrieil twelve; three for each tube. With a speed of .hirty knots these torpedoes would run .'>()() yards—the limit of distance at which they would be employed between moving vessels— in thirty seconds. Tho crews of, tho eight and twelve- inch rifles were assembled in the turrets, grouped about their j^iins, and straining 1 their eyes at the approaching foe. Time and ay-aiii their glances were cast upon every prep:ir.-iUon ami every fittiiisr to render doubly sure the assurance that the moment of need would find nothing nnhecdod or forgotten. Cutlasses and revolvers were; belted on, riiles were placed no:ir a", hand, and the silence was unbroken term he resigned and went abroad to restore his shattered health. Since then he has held no public oillee. For nearly live years past Mr. Medill has lived in southern California. READY FOR ACTION. A Mnn-oT-Wftr Just Prior to an EnffRff«« ment with tho Enomy. Every man was at his station for battle; every preparation was made. Although several minutos would still elapse before the action began, bustle and movement had ceased In silence and suspense, with quickened breath, the onset was awaited. A contingent of firemen, water-tenders and coal-heavers in each lire room performed its duties with a precision unvarying and mechanical. Stripped to the waist, with muscles knotted on arms and shoulders, these grimy, stalwart men luindied slice-bar, rake and shovel, or dragged from the bowels of the bunkers fresh supplies of fuel. They were safe from shot and shell, but they also were denied ail knowledge of passing events. Tlie battle might rage over them and about them without conveying- any intimation of tlie fortunes of tho day. Shells might shriek and tear through the decks above, dismounting R-nns, maiming and killing scores of men, yet nothing would reach them except muflled and tain on the""bri'.l^-e. On one of the flats below the. protective deck tho surgeon's amputating- table was laid, his glistening instru- 7ncuts arranged in neat precision: buckets of water, spong-es, and bandag-es at hand, all spotless and clean, but soon to be deluged by red blood then flowing^ through the veins of vigorous men. Tourniquets were distributed through, the division to men instructed in their use, and in a hatchway were rig-ffed a cot and tackle to gent.ly lower th«wounded men below. In hospital garb, with white coats and aprons and bared arms, the surgeon and his assistant* awaited the beginning of their labors. Now pacing the bridge with rapid, nervous stops, studying his antagonist through his binoculars, the captain of the Farragut seemed absorbed in anxious thought Doubtless ho was rehearsing lessons long- since studied, the varying tactics and opportunities of a marine duel, and wondering what unforeseen situation the one now openingf might present. The timo had not yet come to enter the conning tower, and perhaps, indeed, tho gallant sailor would scarcely enter it at all, preferring, in tlie fierce excitement of battle, danger and a broader field of" vision to comparative safety and a restricted view. It had long been doubted if a captain within the conning tower could properly fight his ship. Tho navigator was in the tower, quartermaster at the wheel petty officers at tlie engine signals. In the bullet-proof turret at each end of the bridge a 3 T onng oflicer kept the telescope of the riwige-finder directed upon the approaching ship. The ranges were recorded in the conning tower and a dial in each turret and division, keptgun captains constantly informed. —Lieut. S. A. Stauuton, U. S.

No agreement was arrived at, however, nnd the ease was again called later for formal hearing. Shin-ay being called to the witness box, said hi: was obliged to leave his home on account of tho habits of his wife, who lind become a confirmed inebriate. In leaving her he had left a once happy home, taking nothing but his clothing with him. He had been forced to witness almost daily the most distressing scenes, us tlie rc*«lt. of his wife's drunken habits. During one of her debauches she had tried to commit suicide anil was only prevented by the timely arrival of the police, who took her into custody. Incidentally Mr. Murray admitted that after leavinghis -wife he had rented a villa, where he still lived with a woman wtio passed as his wife. Questioned as tr> his ability to contribute to his wife's support, he said he had formerly received about £2,500 a year from his writings, but bit Income has become so much reduced that he hap recently, been obliged to distorted sounds.

Even, alter the call to stations for battle vague and undecided rumors found their way to tho regions below: but after the forced draught wns put on, and all hatches closed, they were cut oiT as effectually from all further knowledge as it buried in the catacombs. Silent and intent they toiled, tho blazing furnaces in front of them, a. tangled mass of pipes and connections over their heads. Tho whir of the forced-draught fans make a monotonous accompaniment to tho metallic clash of furnace doors and shovels, the electric light fell upon speed of the enemy, her vnlnerable points. At the lighter guns stood the s:iilor» in smaller groups. A pat-L of the marine guard was stationed here, the re maiiider assigned as sharp shooter.' All men not actually needed for service or tne guns engaged wore to remain in the shelter of tho barbettes and turrets. There was to be no dramatic sacrifice of life. Keforo tho fight was many minutes old there would bo vacancies enough to givo every man a chance to show his nerve and pluclc.
