the matter, but at the next opportunity un
folded to the other Justices his wife's rlew
of the matter and asked them to seek domes
tic counsel on Uieease and reportaithe next
consultation of the court. When that
conciliation came round the Justices hav
ing taken feminine counsel, all reported
against their original view that the article
Involved in the case should be classed ns
a sauce, and accordingly the Justice origi
nally charged with the task of preparing
a decision In faor of the go eminent was
now instructed to prepare one in tat or of
the New York lawyer's client. It thus
happened that the lawyer won his first
case before tho Supreme Court because
tlie wives of the Justices knew more than
the court Itself.
Borne curiosity is expressed In naval'
circles as to the destination of the Minne
apolis. This speedy cruiser, the sister
-ship of the Colombia, which recently
made so successful a run across tbo Atlan
tic, Is now atNorfolk, where she is being
fitted out as a flagship.
She will not M assigned to tbe North
Atlantic station, for the armored cruiser
New York la the flagship of tbet squad
ron. It Is not expected that she will relieve
the Ban Francisco, which is now In Euro
pean waters, or" tyie Newark, which It
the flagship of the South Atlantic squad
ron. The Olympla, on tbe other hand, has
been ordered to tbe China, station as flag
ship, and It is believed for this reason that
tbe service which tbe Minneapolis will
perform will be of a special character.
There Is a probability that she may alsc
be sent to the East Id order that tbe offi
cials of China and Japan may Judge for
themselves the quality of tbe ships that
this country is now building. As the Jap
anese government purposes to largely In
crease Its navy. It is probable that If tbe
Minneapolis Is sent to that station, she
may prove so Instructive an object lesson
as to result lu some of tbe contracts of
tbe Japanese government being given to
American shipbuilding firms.

OYERKULED MY THEllf WIVES.
A Cnno Whore All the Justice of tbe
It was a matter of some surprise that
Justice hhiras. of the United States Su
Upreme Court, should hao changed his
mind within a few weeks upon a matter
of law, but it is not many months since
the whole cojX, (ranged Its mind on such
a matter, and that in the course of a few
tiays, says the New York Sun.
The case lwfore the court was one aris
ing out of a curiums decision at this port,
and the counsel arguing against the de
cision of the cus-lorus house was a New
York lawyer, then for the first time be
fore the Supreme Cojrt. The case turned
mainly upon the question whether an ar
ticle of Importation should or should not
be clasid as a sauce. The custom bouse
had called it a sauce and taxed it accord
ingly. The Government maintained this
contention, and, of course, the New York
lawyer sought to show thnt the article
should not lie classed as a sauce.
When tl e Supreme Court came to consult
upon the case their unanimous opinion was
favorable to the contention of the go em
inent nnsc one of Uic Justices was instructed
to preptre a decision in favor of the custom
bouse The Justice, on rilurnlng home,
told bis wife of the case and indicated the
ground of the declslou, whereupon the lady
told hlra in plain words that the Justices
pt the Supremo Court did not know what
they were talklug about and had agreed
upon an unjust decision The lady was
entirely clear that the article In dispute
could not properly be called a sauce and
openly ridiculed the court. .
The perplexed Justice, Instead of prepar
ing the decision in accordance with the in
structions of his brethren, did nothing In

Perplexing rolntH In tbe Fire Escape
Law Need Definition.
In his efforts to enforce tbe requirements
of the fire escape law Building Inspector
Brady meets with many perplexities.
His assistants are examining all build
ings that are supposed to require tbe
equipment, and in some cases notices have
been served that will in all probability lead
to a suit in court.
The owners decline to comply upon tech
nical points, but the Inspector insists that
if the decision upholds tho objector Mr.
Brady's responsibility ceases.
Tlie building Inspector's 's idea Is that be
should be git en discretionary powers, and
it Is pot at all unlikely that Congress wjll
be asked to amend thelaw with that end In
view. Should fire break out many build
ings of three stories, though much less In
helgbt than Is prescribed, Mr. Brady con
tends, it would be attended with very great
danger to the occupants, and be believes all
such structures should be brougbt within
