LIFE IN COMPRESSED AIR
WHEHR HORrtHRBM OP WORKMEN
TOILKI FOK YKARS.
Tnefteeret nrVanlh-KTerrlbltiff Lire
It' may surprise Borne of oar
readers to learn that for three
years hundreds of workmen have
been living in compressed air,
eaoh carrying a hundred-weight
of air to every square inch of
their bodies, while we, on the sur
face, have borne but fifteen pounds
to the square inch. This has oc
curred in making the tunnel be
neath the Thames at Black wall,
which is desoribed by Mr. J. M.
Bulloch in a vivid article in a re
cent number of the English Illus
trated Magazine, aa the greatest
feat in subaqueous engineering.
You may understand the process
better (writes Mr. Bulloch) if I
describo a journoy I made into the
compressed air. Having half
stripped and equipped myself
with a rouch woollen shirt. Luce
jack boots, and leathern jacket
bo that I looked like an old
fashioned pirate my guides and
I sailed forth from Kent and
trudged along the entire paBBage,
through mud and mire, noticing,
en route, an army ot men engaged
on all sorts of work. Along
the roof ran a line of elec
tric lights, while in tho dark
corners the men used pink color
ed candles. A little north of shaft
2, in which a lift was tearing up
and down, taking the excavated
soil to the surface, we came on
the 12 feet briok barricade, which
effectually corked np the com
pressed air, and which, of course,
had been moved several times as
the work proceeded. Through
this barricade ran two narrow
passages about the height of an
ordinary man; these were the air
looks. A little air-tight door, just
like the door of "a safe, opened
the air, of course, being let out in
the process and wo entered.
The door was closed after us, and
we were left for some minutes in
the lock to become acclimatised
to the new atmospheric conditions
of the tunnel beyond. To this
end certain valves were turned
on, and the compressed air from
the inner tunnel poured invwith
the deafening roar of a steam
nozzle. Then followed a curious
little pantomime. My guides,
holding their noses between their
fingera,began swallowing vigorouB
ly,and signalled me to follow their
example, speech being almost im
possible, as sound depends so
much on atmosphere. I felt a
oraoking in the drum of my ear,
and little wonder, for the 600(1
cubic feet of air which whb being
pumped in every minuto wiib
curving the memhrauo inwards;
so that I had to swullow in older
to clear the eustachian tube and
got tho pressure on oach side of
tho tympanum equal. Then I bo
gau to feel distinctly exhilarated.
The increased amount of oxygen
pumped in was intoxicating me a
trifle. The journey aloug tho
tunnel had been a little tiring, but
now I folt sprightly. Hete was
tho secret of youth; hero was a
practical demonstration of Jekyll
itnd Hyclpisrn. But at what an
oxpense! 1 was living ever bo
much quicker than tho man at
tho surface obovo. Everything
waB living quicker. My cigar
burned to ashes with tho rapidity
of a cigaratto. Whon tho process
of acclimatisation was complete
wo omorged through tho safo-liko
door at tho opposite ond of Uuh
murvullouB chamber of youth, to
find oursolvcs iu the oeo
tiou of tho tunnel which

strange, uucnrthly npponrunco.

found ourselves. Black darkness
all round, save for the line of elec
tric lights running along the roof;
a strange, deathly chill; a touch of
clamminess infecting everything.
Our voices piped shrill and strange
and ghostly. A long caravan of
mud-laden trolleys from the shield
were running down on rails to be
emptied on the other side of the
barricade, and here and there the
shadowy figures of the mud
splashed workers were just visible.
Three hundred feet farther on we
came to the shield working as I
have described. In that little
journey from the barricade to the
shield pne saw in exaggerated
operation a series of physical laws
that ordinarily escape one's atten
tion acoustic, pneumatics, hy
draulics, in snort, the entire
rango of physics.
AN UNTAIH DKVISION.
Exception Taken to the Actios of the
.Editou Evenino Bblletih:
The decision rendered by the
League yesterday iu the StrXiouis
Star gamo of Monday was, in the
estimation of all fair-minded peo
ple, not a fair one. If mutters of
this kind are to be referred to the
League for final decision, we
would Uko to ask who compose
the League. The League, as far
as baseball in this country goes, is
composed of the players thorn
selvos that is, the captain ot each
team and one delegate from each
team. In the decision rendered
yesterday the League members of
tne otar club naturally voted for
themselves and the Regiment fol
lowed suit, simply to keep
down the average of the St. Louis
team, thereby giving them- the
Regiments a better chance to
win tho pennant. The decision
as finally given was called a tie.
This it could not possibly be, as
allowing the Stars the two runs
tha,t, the rules state they are en
titled to would simply make the
score even, but the St. Louis
Olub then must certainly be al
lowed to play their half of the
This matter should not go to
the League for final decision, as
every member of the League
would naturally vote for the bost
intorest of tho club to which he
belongs. Capt. Thompson has
filed papers today in which ho
states that he is willing that tho
two rune should stand to the
credit of tho Stars, provided his
clnb is allowed to finish half of
the ninth innings.
If matters of this kind are to be
left to the League we will always
have trouble, as the League is
composed of members of the clubs
and would in most oases, regard
less of equity, vote for the best
interest of their respective clubs.
This suggestion is offered, that
tho League seleot a committee of
three and the three to soloct two
more, making fivo in all, who
shall act as an arbitration com
mittee, and no member to belong
to tho Association or Leaguo, and
thoir decision to bo final on all
mattora referred to thorn. No ap
peal should bo allowed to go to
tho committee except on tho strict
interpretation of tho rules.

President Dole was visited in
Iris office this morning.by a Bul
letin representative, who desired
to know if there was any now
phase of the Jopaneoo quostion
for publication. The President
said at once that it was the inten
tion of the Executive, ns soon as
could be done, to furnish tho
press with an epitome of tho cor
respondence on the, matter.
"The public has a right to the
information.'ithe 'President said.
' i -spy .
Continuing, President Dole ran
over the list of communications
that brtd passed between tho two
Governments. After the Hawaii
an Government had auswered the
first letter of the JapanesH Min
ister containing the complaint of
his Government, it reooived a long
letter that had also been auswered
as previously reported. Tho an
dwer, it will bo remembered, wna
promised to bo forwarded to his
Government by Minister Shima
Afterward there was presonted
by the Japanese Minister Resi
dent a letter from Count Okuma,
Minister of Foreign Affairs at
Tokyo. This had been written of
course before the Hawaiian reply
to the second letter that asking
for explanations of the first reply
could have been seen by tho
"No;,this letter of Count Okuma
was not modified in tone from tho
original complaint," tho President
said in answer to a question.
"Thorn wos also a letter refer
ring to tho discrimination in favor
of Chinese immigration, where
the planters were required to take
two Chinese for one Japanese in
their labor importations. The
answer to this complaint was that
it was a matter of public policy
to rostoro an equilibrium between
the two nationalities. That end
having been accomplished there
was an end to the discrimination.
"Anothor noto complained that
there wore more Chineso in the
Hawaiian Islands now than in
188G, the date of the labor con
vention with Japan. Although it
is not in the convention, it is iu
the correspondence relating there
to, that tho number of Chinese in
these islands should not exceed
that at thu time tho convention
was ratified. It appears that there
is now a slight excess in the num
ber. Tho letter on this point is
not yet answered."
Minister Cooper was not iu the
Foreign Oilico when tho reporter
called beforo applyiug to the Pre
sident for information. From un
unpublished iuterview of a few
days a;o, however, tho Minister
of Foreign AlTairs is known to bo
avorso to hooping tho peoplo un
necessarily iu tho dark.
Attorney Gonoral W. O. Smith,
who was seen aftorward upon
affairs in his own department,
was asked incidentally if tho Ha
waiian Government had backed
down from its position in tho dis-
nuto witu ilanau. '
"There has boon no backdown
whatovor," was tho conoifio reply.
Mr. Smith iB iu favor of giving
tho publio, at tho earliest oppor
tunity, information on tho status
of tho controversy.

A Chicago correspondent early
in June put tho following on the
wires: Frederick Hawkins of De
troit and T. Laphago, a mechani
cal engineer of London, Eug.,
who built every iron furnace in
Birmingham, Ala., with the ex
ception of four, are to demon
strate to an English syndicate
that thoy can procure ingots from
which steel is made at a cost of
two thirds of that now charged.
Lephage said last night that he
had already made tho experiment
twice at Birmingham and
only eamo to Chicago at
the invitation of Messrs.
Greene Bros., who are the finan
cial auents iu this city of an En
glish syndicate of which A. F.
Bowen of London is at tho head.
Bowen is now en route for the
United States, whero it is said he
will immediately lot contracts for
more than twenty of the biggest
factories jn the country. It wbb
said hero last night that the Illi
nois Steel Company has offered
Hawkins tho immonso sum of
$00,000,000 for his patent and that
tho offer was promptly refused. It
is positivoly known that Hawkins
has refused $500,000 for an eighth
interest in tho plant that is to be
constructed iu Chicago.

Probably the most interesting
thing in tho paper, especially on
this baseball day, is tho following
report of a match of the American
"Last'Saturday, the proposition
of closing stores a2 o'clock p. m.
met with very general consent,
and some who were not up to the
times, found that they were too
late upon going down town after
thnt hour to transact business. A
spirited baseball gamo commenced
on the Esplanade, near tho Cus
tom House, soon after tho closing
of tho stores, where according to
theory at least, health, that article
more desirable than wealth, was
sought by a large number of our
young men, who engaged in the
"More enthusiasm than skill
was displayed by the sportsmen
on this occasion, but aB this was
tho first meeting, we will not pub
lish tho scores made, but wait a
little before sending a challenge
to the older baseball clubs
abroad. However, there was one
episode in the game now to ub,
and which may possibly striko old
players with admiration, as
developing a new application
of the laws ot the game. A
runner, who was unable to reach
one of the bases without -being
'put out' by being touched with tho
ball, put out gallantly on a bee
line up town, followed by his an
tagonists in full cry. It was n
stern chaso, and threatened to bo
a long ono, but by a happy
thought ono of the antagonists
mounted on a saddled horse,
standing nenr by, which soon sot
tlod tho contest, and tho crowd re
turned to first position, with tho
football play or 'out' according to
rulo. Mem., a saddled horse handy
is an excellent thing in baseball
i "L'hoday was rather un favor

novelty was enough to keep up n
