4 ON GUARD. _H_ STORY OF LITTLE ALLEB AKD HER WAYWARD HEART. The Fate of a Sluice Robber Among the Mountains of Ne vada County. [Special Correspondence of Sunday Union.] Nevada City, Jan. 21,1891. It was a warm, still night. The earth, tnade hot by the blistering rays of an August sun, was not yet cool. Ten o'clock had struck, and the little town had become quiet. Here and there lights were shining, and from the open doors of a groggery came the muffled, half intelli gible vaporings of an inebriate who was delivering a lecture to the furniture upon the evils of intemperance. Now and then a sullen boom rumbled up from the mines, a mile away, and echoed through the hills. I sat in the dry house, waiting for Fred. Fred and I were detailed to guard the long sluice, and sec that thieves should not succeed in taking from it a portion of the gold it contained. It was not a pleas ant, task. Not hard work, sitting in tho shadow of ;a bowlder or pacing up and down the sluice, with a heavy sho...

6 QUEEN LOO'S SUBJECTS. [Written for the Sunday Union by Lynn Lubin.] Some people have a strange capability of remaining long in ono position in per fect repose, and Kingsley makes it one of the chief charms of his little, bright-eyed heroine, Eleanor, that she possessed this art of sitting absolutely still for any length of time with the most perfect grace—a most difficult and rare accom plishment, he affirms, and also a most useful one. Now Loo—"Queen Loo," her brothers called her—possessed this, to me, more provoking than useful faculty. In certain moods—generally when in trouble 'or doubt, or upon the point of a decision— she would seat herself in the large arm chair,' and, clasping her white hands together, remain so for an hour, and some times longer, in perfect silence. It was useless to attempt to arouse her by comments or questionings; brief monosyllables—usually evasive of the purpose—were the sole results; argu ment and scolding proved equally as use less. This morning sh...

Phe "Wretched Abode of "Smlko" and "'Nicholas Nickleby," as Pictured In Dickens' Great Novel of "Nicho las Nickleby." [Regular Correspondence of the Sunday Union. Copyright, IS_l.] York, England, Jan. 8,1891. Probably the greatest immediate and lasting good ever done any nation by a single work of fiction was effected by the "Nicholas Nickleby" of Charles Dickens. During the early part of the present century the private schools, and particu larly tiie boys' schools of England, with a few notable exceptions like that of Rugby, were the most infamous in the world. If there can bo superiority in in famy, Yorkshire stood first and best. Dickens himself said of its private school masters: "Traders in the avarice, indif ference or imbecility of parents, and the beiplessness of children; ignorant, sordid, brutal men, to whom few considerate persons would have entrusted the b...

THE ELK GROVE SHOOTING. Morrow's Assailant was Thos. English, His Stepson. Morrow Thinks English Is Insane—A Complete Statement of the Affiilr. It has now been positively ascertained that Thomas Balz, the man who shot and came near murdering Joseph Morrow, near Elk Grove, on Wednesday last, is Alorrow's stepson. And his name is not Balz, as he gave it to the authorities. His name is Thoma3 English, or Thomas Rudolph, as he is sometimes called. Whether the young man is really a ma niac, or whether he is only feigning in sanity in order to escape justice, remains to be seen. He will probably be exam ined by one of the Superior Judges and several physicians to-day. MORROW MORE TALKATIVE. A Record-Union reporter went out to the County Hospital yesterday and bad a long- talk with Morrow, the wounded man. Heretofore Morrow has been very reticent and could not be induced to say imich about the shouting, but yesterday he was in quite a .-onimunicative state and talked freely. Dr. White, the...

BEHRING SEA. Questions of Jurisdiction Gov erned by Consent. Sidney Webster Explains the Pending Controversy Between Our Govern ment and That of Great Britain in the Matter of Seal-Killing. "Doos the President's special message on the Eehring Sea controversy, recently sent to the Senate, show that the diffi culties of last summer have any of them been removed?" I asked Sidney Web- Bter, says a writer in the New York Her ald. ■ "The answer must depend," ho replied, "on your view of the situation last sum mer. Oue phase of the pending contro versy," he added, "is a natural outcome of rivalries in a money-making industry. The Canadian and the American owners of sealing vessels have a common interest against the Commercial Company, which holds a monopoly of seal-killing on the Pri byloff Islands. The Commercial Com pany naturally wishes our Government to prevent seal-hunting beyond a marine lectio from those islands. And yet neither the Government nor the people of the United States can...
