Stop Work On
New York, Mav 26. One of the
Pennsylvania Railroad's tunnel tubes
has unexpectedly been advanced to a
clear body of water in the East river,
where it was supposed to be far un
der the river bed in rock and mud.
The original survey of the river bot
tom for the tunnel gave no hint of
such a situation. The discovery of
the clear water, which really marks
a gully in the river bottom, was
therefore a great surprise to the en
gineers. The work in two of the four tubes
is stopped, and one tube will have to
be inclosed. How the difliculty will
be met has not been revealed by the
engineers. They are said to be limi
ted to two methods, the construction
of a cofferdam or construction of sec
tions of tunnel above the surface, to
be followed by the lowering of them
into place. A blow out in one tube
of the tunnel at. the foot of East
Thirty fourth, street occurred when
clear water was struck. The blow
out occurred when there was no ferry-boat
in the slip, which wasfortun
ate. It caused a geyser ten feet
high to appear suddenly in the slip.

Looking For A
Sir Chontung 'Liang Cheng, the
Chinese Minister from Washington,
came over from' Oakland yesterday
morning, May 22, where he has been
staying at the Touraine with the first
secretary of the Washington Lega
tion, Chow Tszchi, for the purpose of
investigating the different sites which
have been proposed for the rebuilding
of Chinatown. They were accom
panied by Mayor Mott and President
Benjamin Ide Wheeler, of the State
University, and were met on this
side by William F. Herrin, James D.
Phelan and A. Ruef of the Chinatown
committee. The party took two au
tomobiles and were accompanied by
Police Lieutenant JI, J. Wright.
The Minister, who was educated in
this country at Phillips Andover
Academy and Amherst College, is a
genial diplomat, and he expresses
himself as well pleased-with what has
been done for his countrymen since
He did not speak definitely on the
subject of the change of the location
of the Chinese colony here. He evi
dently realizes that it is a complicat
ed matter, involving vested interest?
that will have to be treated cautious
ly. He said: "Wherever the Chinese
residents rebuild I am in favor of the
new village being tree from the
squalor which characterized the form
er locality, and I hope that every
thing will be done with the grace and
beauty that would be followed if it
were being built in China. At the
same time tne sanitarv conditions
should be perfect.
"There are forty Chinese mer
chants who owned property in the old
Chinatown and who would be able to
rebuild there. Of Course this would
be to no purpose if the Chinese peo
pie who were their customers should
be compelled to locate elsewhere."
Before the party started on the
tour of inspection the Minister visited
the Mayor at his oflice in the Cen
tury Club building. The Mayor indi
cated that the situation near Tele
graph Hill might be the one finally
decided upon. S. F. Chroicle.

Hums tells of the difficulties encoun
tered by a darky preacher in Missi
sippi in endeavoring to "snatch a
brand from the burning" in the shape
of one Mose Baker, who steadfastly
refused to attend devine service.
The preacher's arguments were
met by a discouraging silence on the
part of Mose. Finally the latter con
descended to speak to the extent of
asking a question. "Wot are we' all

"We is heah tohelpodders, Moses,'

Lack Of Stamps On
Letters An Annoyance.
Berlin, May 26. Wholesale charg
es of "criminal carelessness" are be
ing preferred against business
houses and private correspondents
in the United States by Germans, as
well as Americans, resident in Ger
many who receive heavy transatlan
tic mails. It is declared ..that fully
25 per cent of the American mail
arriving in Germany bfars insuffi
cient postage, entailing expensive
penalties at this end.
Letters have come from American
consulates in this country and from
German business men asking that
widespread public attention be called
in the United States to "a practice
which is inconsistent with the Ameri
can reputation for efficiency."
The annoyance has become so great
that German firms are now in the
habit of asking American consulates
to reimburse them:
The German postal people take
delight in weighing incoming foreign
mail because the penalties exacted
provide a handsome source of revenue.'
Louisvi'.lo (Ky.), May 27. Scores
of corner pumps, with . the handles
removed, and signs derisively an
nouncing "Closed; it's sinful to drink
on Sunday," brought home to early
rising householders in many sections
of the city the fact that Louisville to
day was for the first time in many
years dry as" Tophet. As the day
wore on it was seen that the State
and city authorities were in dead
earnest about putting on the lid.
The streets and cars were filled with
aimless Sabbath loungers drifting
from one point to anothpr vainly sefck
ing the amusements and conveniences
to which they had been accustomed.
The absent-minded once were easi
ly discernible by the growth of beard
which t'.iey had expected to have re
moved, not thinking to find the bai-
ber shops closed.
Every place in LouisVille and Jeffer
son couniy where intoxicants are sold
was, with one exception, closed tight.
The exception was a park conduct
ed by a Hebrew, who observed Sat
urday as the Sabbath. He was ar
rested and will be tried, but was al
lowed to continue selling throughout
the day, (doing a roaring business as
the news spread.
Four other places where liquor is
sold had been designated ly the Re
tail Dealers' Association to test the
law. The proprietors were not only
arrested, but the places were kept
closed v thereafter. Besides the
saloons, all barber shops, bowling
alleys, billiard halls, theaters, gro
eery stores and, in fact, everything
except hotels, drug stores and rail
road and street car lines, were clos
ed. Two free "sacred concerts" at
the largest amusement parks in
Jefferson county were not molested,
but one of the employes were per
mitted to work.
The ball park was crowded with
spectators when the game between
Louisville and Toledo was called, but
after halt an inning bad been played
the police arrested Presidents Tebeau
and Grillo and all players and em
ployes. Although bond was promptly
given, the park was ordered closed
and resumption of play was not per
The validity of the statutes and or
dinances under -which the arrests
were made will be thoroughly tested
in (lio courts, but the authorities de
clare that in the meantime all places
coming under the provision of the
laws will be kept tightly closed.
