The Society for the Prevention of

Cruelty to Animals, which has lately

assumed the management of the public

ponnd, and John Partridge, who is the

officiating poundieeper of this city and

county, are in trouble. It is all over a

pig—the pet of a man who walks the

streets followed by the animal, which

wears a blanket and tamely answers its

master's call whenever it is given.

Neither the pig nor the man apparently

knows that they are the subject of

a much mixed controversy, but such is

the case. Questions concerning that

pig are pouring into the office of the

poundkeeper and the Society for the Prevention

of Cruelty to Animals daily and

are becoming more complicated as the

time goes on. Here are souse of them:

If a pig assumes the manners and

privileges of a dog is it not also compelled

to take upon itself the same responsibilities

the dog has to carry?

Why is this pig not regularly registered

and licensed, and why does it not

have a tag attached to its collar, which

puts it on an equal footing with a dog?

What right has this pig to the freedom

of the city?

What legal standing has this pig in

case it gets itself into any trouble?

What is the difference between a dog

and a pig from a legal point of view?

How can a man take out a dog license

for a pig, and would not a pig traveling

with such a permit be liable to be arrested

for false pretenses?

If Mr. Partridge or his deputies seize

this pig for not being licensed, will not

The village of Bay St. Louis was a

favorite dueling ground in the days when

an appeal to swords or to pistols was

thought by southern gentlemen to be the

only honorable way of settling personal

grievances. Those days are past, and now

there is not a more peaceful and certain-

ly not a more beautiful town in all the

picturesque coast country.

If ever you shall be going to New Or-

leans by way of the railroad from Mo-

iile you will find it well worth while t»

stop and spend a few days at this lovely

suminer resort.

If you will take a carriage and a driver

who knows the place you may spend a

day or two delightfully in exploring the

ins and outs, by highway and byway, of

a settlement that dates back to the time

when the Spaniards and the French were

playing battledore and shuttlecock with

all our rich and salubrious gulf-coast

country. Even now in the streets and

picturesque little shops of Bay St. Louis

you hear the soft accents of Spain and the

polite intonations of Paris.

The people have soft voices and gentle

manners, and it is hard to imagine, much

harder to believe, that it was ever true

of them that they stood ready, on the

strength of the slightest insult, to fight

to the death as a matter of honor; but

so it was. There are men living now

who saw many duels in the days of the

"code." One charming old gentleman

informed the present writer that he had

witnessed twenty hostile meetings with

sword or pistol.

Before the days of the railroad which

now makes Bay St. Louis but one

hour and thirty minutes from New Or-

leans, the only approach was by water,

save from the interior of Mississippi.

This rendered the place one of the most

secluded nooks in America, and, as a

matter of course, a considerable number

of refugees from justice or from mis-

fortune or tyranny fled thither; but the

larger part of the population was highly

respectable; some of it was made up,

especially in summer, of the wealthiest

and best French families of New Or-

leans, who came by steamboat to spend

the hot season in elegant cottages on the

breezy bluffs.

Nearly all the duels ever fought at

Bay St. Louis took place in one or an-

other secluded spot in the lonely woods

behind the town. These woods are now

dotted with Creole and negro cottages,

the homes of poor people, who find an

easy if not luxurious life where the fish

in the bayous and the fruits on the trees

are to be had with but the smallest out-

lay of labor. Ever since the place was

first settled, and even before, these

woods have been a maze of crossed and

tangled roads, paths and trails first

made by the Indians. You can ride or

drive everywhere and in every direction,

and yet the growth is thick, often ob-

structing the sight on all rides. Now

and again you come upon little natural

glades or openings set in wild grass and

surrounded with a wall of trees. These

are the spots that were chosen for tho

dreadful work of the duelists.

About the year 1834 two young men

of New Orleans were lovers of a beauti-

ful girl by the name of Marie de Noyant,

whose father had a summer place at

Bay St. Louis. Of course, Marie could

not accept the attentions of both if she

loved either, and as Honore Chauvin

had captured her heart, there was noth-

ing for Pierre Maton to do but to chal-

lenge his successful rival to mortal com-


The three families—Noyants, Chau-

vins and Matons—were of the best in

New Orleans, and had always been on

the most intimate terms socially. Honore

and Pierre had known Marie from her

childhood up; they had been her play-

mates, her friends, and now they were

her lovers. Both were handsome, Vich

and honorable, as honor was understood

at the time and place. If Marie hesi-

tated to choose between them it was not

because of any doubt in her heart. She

knew that she loved Honore, and quite

as well she was aware that under no cir-

cumstances could she ever love Pierre.

Still it was very hard for her, when

Pierre came to her home on the bay and

asked her to be his wife—it> was hard to

break in on his passionate appeal with

the truth that must crush him. She

begged for time to consider, and thus

put off the unpleasant, nay, the tortur-

ing, duty that she owed to herself and

to her lovers. But the moment came

when she could no longer procrastinate.

Honore, doubtless aware that his rival

was besieging the citadel of his lady's

heart, came also to Bay St. Louis and

urged his suit.

Gently, kindly, sweetly as she could,

Marie put an end to Pierre's hopes; but

it was not in her power to blunt in the

least the terrible point of her refusal.

Love is not to be set aside with polite-

ness, nor can it be assuaged by generous

friendship and tender kindness. Any-

thing short of love is a stab to love.

"Then it is Honore Chauvin that you

care for, Marie?" said Pierre, rising

to go.

Marie arose also, and they stood look-

ing at each other. They had been sit-

ting on a vine covered veranda, with the

waves of the bay tumbling in against

the beach in full view.

"Yes, Pierre," she said presently, "I

will not deceive you or evade your ques-

tion. I do love Honore, and I promised

him today that I would be his wife."

Pierre stood dumb for a while. There

was nothing for him to say; words were

not mada that could in any way serve

his turn in this moment of utter defeat.

"Oh, I am so sorry, so grieved, Pierre,

to see you feel like this!" cried Marie.

"You know I love you as a brother is

loved, very, very much, and"

"As a brother!*' muttered Pierre, with

bitter, desperate emphasis—"as a broth-

er!" And he turned and left the girl':

presence without another word. '

She made a movement as if to follow

Viim, but he had passed down the steps

and out of the gate with long strides,

like some actor in a melodrama.

Her first thought was of danger to

Honore Chauvin; for in those days the

hot French blood rarely cooled without

festjbaviag boiled over in deadly fight.

What Pierre Maton did was to go

straight to his friend Honore Chauvin

and slap him in the face.

"That for Marie de Noyant!" he ex-

claimed, still choking with "the desperate j

choler excited by his sense of defeat.

"That for you!"' he went on, repeating

the insulting blow. Then he turned and

left Honore, well knowing what would


The challenge was promptly sent aud

as promptly accepted.

The following morning at a little past

sunrise the combatants, with their sec-

onds and surgeons, met in a saiull open

space where two or three little wild wood

roads, dim and straggling, crossed each

other in the forest part of what was then

known as the Toulme plantation. They

were to fight with swords.

The weapons were measured, positions

chosen, the word given, and the fight to

the death was begun by a thin, keen,

far reaching clink of steel crossing steel.

Many a time had these young men,

now eager for each other's blood, fenced

in manly play, and well did both know

how equally were they matched, and

how doubtful was the outcome of the

struggle they were beginning. Both

were pale, but cool and war)-; in their

eyes burned the hateful fire of unforgiv-

ing anger. The seconds stood aside, si-

lently but intently gazing on; the sur-

geons, a little farther away, held their

bandages and instruments ready.

Honore Chauvin, to do him justice, did

not wish to kill Pierre Maton, but

meant, if he could, to disable him. This,

however, was not so easy, for Pierre,

eager to slay, and burning with rage of

disappointed passion, was fighting like a

mad tiger, and yet with supreme vigi-

lance and art.

Their swords cut the air with hissing

swiftness and filled the space with a

clangor and shower of spiteful sparks

that might well have stilled all the wild

songs of the birds in the woods round-

about. Once the keen point of Pierre's

rapier barely touched Honore's throat,

etting the least show of blood. "In turn

Pierre felt a tingling scratch on his own

breast, but this exchange of touches

only shot into the fight a new access of

energy. As the exercise began to steady

their excited nerves and lend suppleness

to their leaping muscles they redoubled

their efforts, and Honore forgot his re-

solve to only wound Pierre, while Pierre

felt his desire to kill swell into a steady,

deadly tempest of passion.

Again and again each of the combat-

ants received slight wounds, mere

scratches; but neither appeared able to

break the other's guard or to find an un-

defended point, such touches as they

had given and received being more the

result of close fighting than of advantage

either way. But no matter how young

and strong they were, or how expert,

this could not last very long. The tre-

mendous strain was sure to tell. Who

would fail first and permit the other to

make the fatal pass?

They were panting now, and the white

foam was gathering on their purplo lips.

Their eyes, starting and glaring with

concentrated fury, were fixed and ter-

rible in their animal expression. It was

as if these two men, so lately friends

and almost brothers, were ready to man-

gle and devour each other like savage

wild beasts.

Happily the time when such things

could be has gone by, but it is by keep-

ing record of those strange acts that we

are able to understand the growth of

our present civilization. The duel lin

gered longer in the south than in the

north, and especially in the low country

did it last without much sign of passing

away till some time after the close of

our great war. Looking back now we

can scarcely realize that only half a

century ago it was a common occurrence

for two men to do what we are witness-

ing between Honore Chauvin and Pierre


So much was dueling a part of the life

of the people in the early years of the

present century that in some parts of our

country to refuse a challenge was to in-

vste social ostracism, and not to give and

not to give one on fit occasion was sure

to attract contempt.

The seconds and the surgeons stood by

so wrapped in contemplation of the even

handed fight, so engrossed in watching

the leaping blades, and so forgetful of

everything save this play of death, that

they did no*- hear the sound of wheels

and the rapid beating of a flying horse's

feet. As for the principals, they would

not have heard if a thunderbolt had

fallen at their feet. They were now

fighting in tae last spurt of strength be-

fore one or the other must fail. Each

felt that if his antagonist held up a few

minutes longer all would be over. The

reflection of this thought set a terrible

light in their drawn and haggard faces.

The muffled sound of wheels in the

sand and of the furious flight of a horse

came nearer and nearer. The seconds

leaned forward as the intensity of their

sympathy with their principals seemed

to shrivel them, as if with heat; the sur-

geons unconsciously drew closer to the

panting, laboring duelists.

HoQore Chauvin at this moment made

a lunge; Pierre avoided it by a supreme

effort; the movement caused them to ex-

cfiange positions, and as they did so

Pierre shot out a quick thrust that

pierced Honore's sleeve without touch-

ing the flesh; his point hung a half sec-

ond, and Honore was just in the act of

running him through when he tripped on

a small root and staggered back. Now

they both rallied and renewed the con-

test with a momentary show of ro-twn-

The horse, after falling and rolling

over, struggled to its feet, and, with

parts of its harness still clinging to it

and trailing and whirling about, ran

frantically away through the woods in

the direction of the town.

Overcome for a moment, the seconds

and surgeons stood staring and motion-

less, but they were men of nerve, and

needed but time to take a breath and

pull themselves together before spring-

ing forward to the assistance of Honore

and Pierre, who lay as if dead on the

ground where the shock of the collision

had flung them.

Miirie de Noyant had arisen early that

morning to keep a promise she had made

to visit a sick and extremely aged creole

woman who lived in a small house back

in the woods on the road to .fordon

river. Feeling oppressed with what had

occurred between her and Pierre, she or-

dered her servant to fetch her pony and

and cart and drove away alone before

the rest of the household were up. She

left the servant behind, wishing to be

entirely free to commune with her heart

and to devise if possible some means of

softening Pierre's disappointment. Whi.e

she feared that something dreadful

might come of the terrible passion of the

young man, she did not dream that,

even while .she drove slowly along the

dim road under the trees, a duel was in

progress between him and Honore

Chanvin. Her pony, a stout, gentle ani-

mal, jogged quietly forward in the sand

between the tufts of Spanish bayonet

and thickets of bay bushes; overhead

the pine trees moaned and the grard

magnolias rustled their stiff, glossy


Suddenly threo or four goats, part of a

herd thai had bees turned out to graze

and browse in the woods, leaped out of a

little tangle of tall wild grass hard by

and dashed across the road close in front

of the pony. ,M;;rie at tho time was ab-

sorbed in thought and held the lines with

a slack hand. The pony took fright, as

the gentlest horse sometimes will, and

whirled about and, almost upsetting the

cart, ran away through the forest as fast

as his legs could carry him. The move-

ment whisked the lines out of Marie's

grasp, and so she lost control. Discover-

ing his freedom, and crazed with fright,

the hitherto gentle little animal now be-

came a savage and terrible beast, reck-

less of everything, giving no attention to

road or direction.

The read.r will understand at once

how the catastrophe came about at the

dueling ground, for the pony, accident-

ally heading itself that way, ran madly

and. blindly upon the combatants. It

was found dead a half mile from the spot,

with Pierre's rapier sheathed to the hilt

in its breast. It had struck the weapon's

point just as it was about to dart into the

heart of Honore Chauvin.

The strangest part of the whole adven-

ture was that Marie escaped without

even the slightest hurt.

The young men were borne to the

nearest house, where for many hours

they lay side by side insensible. Honore's

hurts were nearly fatal, and Pierre was

crippled for life. In the course of their

convalescence they both received the

gentle and untiring care of Marie, and

before the 1 * wero able to leave the horse

their friendship had been restored.

Aunt Clothilde, a very old colored

woman, who speaks nothing but the

French patois of the creole country, is

the only survivor of the slaves owned by

Marie de Noyant's father at the time of

the duel. You may, if you will visit

her in her little house on Hospital sHeet

in New Orleans, have the story, that I

have here sketched, told to you in the

most picturesque way, and it always

ends with a minute description of how

beautiful Marie looked in her white

wedding gown when she and Honore

Chauvin were married.

In the course of frequent and long

sojourns in the old French region of the

south I have made note of many roman-

tic, odd or otherwise interacting stories

of dueling, but none of them seems to

me more strange than this told me by

Aunt Clothilde.

Last winter I visited the spot where

the duel was fought, and while I tried

to imagine the scene as it was sixty-six

years ago a mocking bird quavered its

incomparable flute score from a wax

myrtle bush on the edge of a flowery

thicket har'l by. What a peaceful spot

it was!—Maurice Thompson in New

York Ledger.

Results of Thirty Years' Agitation

in England.


Trades In Which the Time Has Been

Curtailed and Some in Which the Old

Day Still Oktains—More Trouble at

the Chicago World's Fair Site—Five

Hundred Laborers Strike for Bight

Hours and 91. 75—The Contractors Declare

They Will Fight.

LONDON, April 81. —There was laid upon

the table of the house of commons yesterday,

in response to a motion by Henry

Broadharst, the representative of the

London workingmen, a return showing

the number of hours worked per week in

the chief trade and manufacturing circles

from 1850 to 1890, as well as a resume of

the effects of the restrictive measures

adopted by parliament at various times.

The blue book opens by saying that iu

Lancashire the hours of the agri

cultural laborer have fallen form

sixty to forty-eight hours per week,

though it seems this applies to winter

work only, for in summer sixty hours a

k is the rule. From sixty to fifty in

summer and winter may be taken as the

average hours of a laborer ou land in England.

Labor About the Docks.

The return as to the dockers is very

curious. In 1850 the Liverpool docker

worked from forty six in summer to fortythree

hours in winter. Last year the

hours are given as fifty-two and a half

and fifty three, and the men are not alloweu

a half hour for dinner on Satur.

days. In London the doub laborers work

fifty-seven hours per week, the lightermen

from ninety-six hours to seventy-two. The

wharfingers, who in 1S50 worked seventytwo

hours per week, only do that now in

winter time, when ice chokes traffic and

business is correspondingly urgent. Otherwise

the tale of work is reduced to fiftyfour

hours a week.

Bakers and Brickmakers.

The bakers in London used to work seventy-two

hours a week, summer and winter.

They now have fifty-four hours a

week. In Birmingham the bakers in 1880

had to work eighty and ninety hours a

week. Now they have managed to cut

their hours down to from sixty-five to seventy,

and in some cases only from ninety

to eighty. In the brickmakiug business

sixty hours was reckoned a week's work

ten years ago; now the working week

ranges from forty-eight to fifty-four. In

Scotland the hours in the building trades

are from fifty-one to fortyjfive.

Men Who Build Houses.

Sixty hours a week was not thought

too hard for carpenters in 1880.

Now in London the working week with

them is reduced to fifty-two and one-half

hours alike in summer and winter, and in

no case do carpenters work more than

fifty-six and one half hours a week, except

in Ireland, where at Sligo they work

sixty hour* per week. In the painting

and decorating trade in London thirty

years ago sixty honrs a week was the rule

all round. That was also the rule with

plasterers, who now work only fifcy-two

and one-half hours in summer and fortyseven

hours in winter. Slaters used to

work sixty-one hours a week; they now

work fifty hours. Stone masons

vary in their hours. In London their

work consists of fifty-six and on«-half

hours, but stone carvers work only fortyseven


Hours of Labor at Mines.

The coal miners vary very much. In

Northumberland the hewers used to work

sixty hours a week; they now work thirtyeight

hours. The boys have reduced their

hours from seventy-two to thirty-two and

one-half. The pumping engine men work

sixty-six hours per week, but, then, in

1850 they worked seventy-two. The firemen

still work eighty-four hours a week,

as in 1850; in fact, the hours of surface

men at collieries seem longer than in any

other trade in the country. In Lancashire

the miners since 1-450 have reduced their

hours from seventy two par week to fifty;

seven and a half; in Staffordshire from

sixty to forty-eigli'^ In Yorkshire sixty

hours used to be the rule. These miners

now usually work only forty-eight hours

per week.

No Relief for Railroaders.

In Wales the hours are fifty-four aweek,

and the same holds good of Scotland. In

the printing trade the hours have been reduced

from sixty a week iu 1850 to fiftyfour

In 1S90. But among railway men

no progress is recorded. Drivers still

work sixty hours ,a week and signalmen

in "twelve-hour boxes" seventy two hours

a week. Among shipbuilders forty-five

hours a week seems the usual thing, only

the hours vary in the different shipbuilding

trades. In the textile industries the

hours have fallen in the last forty years

from sixty per week to fifty-six and a



Five Hundred Laborers Demand More

Money and Less Hours.

CHICAGO, April 21.—Five hundred laborers

struck work at Jackson park yesterday

after McArthur Bros, had refused

to accede to their demands of $1.75 per

day for eight hours' work and payment

every two weeks instead of once a month.

Early yesterday morning the committee

appointed by the men at their meeting on

Sunday night, waited on McArthur Bros.,

and made their demand.

The Trouble Begun. .

Fred McArthur was the only member

of the firm present, and he asked the men

if they had any other grievance except

their wages, and, on receiving an answer

in the negative, said that time checks

would be given to all the men who wanted

them as fast as they could be made

out. When the 1 o'clock bell rang all the

teams went to work, but none of the laborers

moved. A handbill was got out

during the afternoon and spread broadcast

over the city warning laborers to

keep away from the World's fair site.

Will Not Pay the Increase.

In speaking of the situation in the afternoon

Alan McArthur said: "We will

not pay more than $1.50 per day and we

never promised to pay $1.75 per day at the

men say we did. There is nothing to

cause dissatisfaction. We are paying the

same rate of wages that is paid by all

the contractors for the same class of

work, and we work exactly on the same

system. We pay more than the railways

pay their section hands, who, in most instances,

only get $1.35 or $1.35 per day.

Labor is a commodity and is our princi-

pal stock in trade. Its price is regulated

bf Uie supply and demand.

Charges It to Labor Agitators.

The men would be satisfied if it were

not for the labor agitators who come

among them, and there is no doubt they j

would ask for *5 an hour if they saw any

chance of getting it As regards their

j board, it is as good as can be given for tlie

price, and Mr. Gould and Mr. Seymour,

our two eugineers, eat at the same place

in preference touoing down to Woodlawn.

We pay on the 20th day of the month and

pay cash. If, however, a man denvinds to

leave during the mouth we give him a

time check, which he can get eisheil for 2

percent, discount at a real estate flrtn close

to the grounds, but if he is discharge.! he

gets paid in cash."

meeting of (he Men.

About 400 of the strikers met during

the afternoon, and were addressed by

William H. Kliver, of the Carpenters union.

He began by telling the men that

the sympathy of the business men of the

city and the press was with them, and it

was considered an outrage that in a city

like Chicago men should be treated worse

than slaves. In order to keep this sympathy

they must, however, be careful that

during this strike there was no violence

or misbehavior of any kind. He then advised

the men to thoroughly picket the

site, and persuade men going there to

work from doing so.

BOSTON, April 20.—Fire at 2 o'clock yesterday

morning destroyed the Chipman

building, at the corner of Hanover and

Court streets, adjoining the Crawford

house annex, and wheu the flames had

been nearly subdued, the falling of the

flaming roof buried twenty-one firemen

and oue reporter in the ruins. None of

the apparatus had left the scene, and all the

engines began at once to pour a deiuge oi

water upon the ruins, while the laddermen

went to work with axes and bars to release

the imprisoned men. The flooring of the

upper story had been little burned, and

to this is due the fact that all did not lose

their lives. The rescuers had tolerably

firm footing and the work was carried forward

so rapidly that all were rescued

alive. Among the men imprisoned in the

ruins were Chief of the Department Louis

P. Webber, District Chiefs Cheswell,

Pope and Regun, and Capts. Griffin and


The Unfortunates Rescued.

As fast as the men were taken out they

were carried to the Crawford House and

there attended by the fire department

surgeons. Chief Webster sustained

severe injuries to his back and head and

was badly burned. The most seriously

injured were District Chief Cheswell

and Captain Griffin. Both were terribly

burned and, it is feared, suffered

internal injuries which may prove fatal.

Hoseman John Long was struck in

the abdomen by a timber and will proba

bly die. At one time the fire threatened

to extend to the Crawford house, which

has just recovered from a severe fire, and

the panic among the guests was painful

to witness. The building was occupied by

Bailey & Ramkin, carpets and oilcloth,

who lose $10,000; S. C. Thompson, musical

instruments, and Burrage & Co., furnishing

goods, who lose $1,000 each. Other

losses are small.


Wreck of a Fast Mail on the Lake Shore


CLEVELAND, O., April 20.—Saturday

evening as the fast mail on the Lake Shore

railway was passing Kipton station,

about forty miles west of this city, it collided

with the Toledo express just as the

latter was pulling off the main line to let

the mail pass. Both engines, three mail

cars and a baggage car were re luced to

splinters and old iron, and the following

killed: E Iward Brown and Charles Tupton,

engineers, of Toledo; F. J. Nugent,

Toledo; Charles Hammill, J. F. Binv-rJ

The Passengers Escape Injury.

Starkey, fireman of No. 14, had his

shoulder dislocated and leg broken; Will

Danzig, son of a section foreman, was

struck by wreckage and badly hurt. None

of the passenger cars left the track and

none of the passengers received serious

injuries. As nearly as can be ascertained

there was a conflict of orders. A dispatcb

was first sent that the trains should meel

at Oberlin, seven miles east, and almost

immediately after it was followed by

another announcing Kipton as the meeting


Three More Victims of Dynamite.

ASPEN, Colo., April 20.—A frightful accident

in whicn three men were instantly

killed and two others seriously injured

occurred at the Cameron shaft of the Argentum
