to postpone action for a short time.

AMERICANS IN ENGLAND.
Consul Ilnlsteutl Define Their I'rlv
Ilefjef I'mler the I'resent Lnivs.
The status of American citizens in Eng
land is a topic of general interest and is
quite elaborately treated by Consul Mar
shal Halstead, of Birmingham, in a com
munication to the Department of State.
Consul Halstead, in introducing the sub
ject, says: "Americans establishing agen
cies and living here have at times asked
me what rights, as aliens, they have under
English law. In response to my request,
F. M. Burton, my vice consul, who is an
English solicitor, has prepared the follow
ing statement on the matter:
An Amrriran citizen, whether naturalized or
not, may now result- in Ktiidjntl anil enjoy ulnm-.:
equal privileges with a llritish-lioni subject, the
policy tit Knglantl being to encourage foreigners
to settle here for the purpose's of trade, a well
as to afford them a safe asylum in times of
All persons who are not fahjeets of the Crown
arc called aliens, and the laws affecting them
were formerly cty harsh. They could hold lands
neither by purchase nor dc-ccnt; they could not
take a seat in Parliament or hold office under the
state: and b an act, passed in the reign of
Jsmes I, it was laid down that "all Mich as are
to be naturalized or restored in blood shall first
recehe the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper and
the oath of allegiance and the oath of suprem
acy." They were al"-o subject to taxation, from
which British subjects were exempt. This, liow
eer, has all been done away with, and the disa
bilities of an alien aie now- very few. If he be
comes naturalized, they, are almost entirely re
moved. Should war break out between Knghrnd
and the state to which an alien belongs, he would
be permitted to continue his residence in Kng
land so long as he conducted himself peaceably.
The laws affecting aliens were settled under tilt
naturalization act, 1S70, and subsequent statutes,
which enacted that
"Keal and personal property of every descrip
tion may be taken and acquired, held and dis
posed of by an alien in the same manner in all
respects as by a natural-born British subject;
provided, that this shall not confer any right on
an alien to hold real property situate out of the
United Kingdom, nor shall it qualify an alien for
any office, or any municipal, parliamentary, or
An American, therefore, may still remain a citi
zen of the United States and live and carry on
business in England. He has the right to acquire
property, and to sue and be med; and he is liable
to the bankruptcy laws in the same manner as a
An alien becoming naturalized under the above
mentioned act has all political ami other rights,
power', and privileges, and is subject to all obli
gations of a natural-born British subject in the
United Kingdom, with the qualification that he
shall not, when within the limits of a foreign
state, of which he was a subject before being nat
uralized, be deemed a Brtisli subject, unless he
has ceased to be a subject of that state in pur
suance of the laws thereof, or in pursuance of a
treaty to that effect.
Naturalization is usually obtained by certificate
of the home secietary, which is granted on ap
plication, subject to the following conditions, viz:
Residence in the United Kingdom or service
under the Clown for the jears in all during the
preceding eight years.
A memorial to the home secretary, with lequircd
Statutory declaration verifjing the memorial.
Declaration by four British subject", vouching
for loyaltyand verifying memorial. .
An oath of-allegianee.
Under the United States regulations (contention
with Great Britain May 13, 1S70), naturalizetl sub
jects of either country are recognized as such, and
citizens of either country renewing their residence
in those countries' may be readmitted to the char
acter and privileges of citizenship, on such terms
as the respective governments may think fit.

THE SMALLPOX SITUATION.
Health OIHec OHleluIs on the Alert
for Further Climes.
The experts of the local Health Office
yesterday discovered two smallpox sus
pects. One of them lives in the north
west and the other in the southwest part
of the city. Each case has been practi
cally quarantined and is being very close
ly watched by the health inspectors.
Dr. William C. Woodward, the Health
Omccr, is personally directing his assist
ants in the cases of the suspects as well
as the two vfctims who were removed to
the isolating hospital yesterday. He will
not give publicity to the names of the
suspects unless they develop genuine cases.
Dr. Woodward is not anxious to conceal
the names of the suspects, but believes
that, in view of the excitement caused
some people by the appearance of the dis
ease In their vicinity, it is best to withhold
the names of all suspects from the public.
The young negro, Frank Newman, and
the colored woman, Annie Williams, who
was found suffering with the disease in
Georgetown, are both confined at the Iso
lating hospital and are attended by at
taches cf the Health Department.
The Stoek residence, at 3336 O Street, at
which the woman was round and the
house at 12 Wunder's Court, where the
negro youth was living, were thoroughly
disinfected. The places have been quar
antined and special policemen are on du
ty in Wunder's Court, where It is feared
other negroes will carelessly enter the
Newman house and cause the contagion
Neither of the two persons who are un
der suspection lived with the victims which
were located yesterday. As far as Is known
they did not live in the same neighbor
hood, and this is one of the worst fea
tures of the matter.
Dr. Woodward has oflicialLv citified Sur
geon General Wyman, of the Marine Hos
pital Service, of the discovery of two genu
ine cases of the disease in this city Mon
day. Dr. Wyman will notify his officers
at Norfolk, Ya., and other infected places
to maintain the closest quarantine round
those places. His men have been vigilant
and alert and have been doing their level
best during the past two weeks to pre
vent the disease leaving either Norfolk or
Alexandria. It is almost next to impos
sible to establish a perfect quarantine
round Alexandria. Persons will manage
to leave that city unobserved and as
Washington is only five miles distant it
is quite easy for such persons to spread
the disease to this city.
As it is, the three cases which are at
the isolating hospital, including that of
Kev. Dr. Milbanks, have all been traced
Dr. Woodward is arranging to increase
his force during the present emergency
and will ask the Commissioners to allow
him several additional men.
POULTRY IN BELGIUM.
Consul Hoosevelt Describes the
Methods of Ilreetliiij? Employed.
In compliance with instructions from
the State Department, sent at the instance
of a poultry breeder of the District of Co
lumbia, Consul Roosevelt at Brussels
makes a report regarding the poultry in
dustry in Belgium. He says that the
science of breeding all kinds of domesti;
animals for profit or pleasure was for cen
turies more advanced in Belgium than in
any other European country. Poultry is
bred throughout Belgium in some locali
ties for eggs and meat; in others for meat
The breed most in favor there for gen
eral purposes is known as the "Land Van
Oelst." The hens, resembling somewhat
the penciled Hamburg, are prolific layers.
The eggs are large, of good flavor, and
produce the earliest "poulet au Ia"t,"
I which is marketable when six weeks o'.d.
or, when grain red, at three months. The
young cocks mature early, are meaty in
six weeks, and take on fat befora three
months; or they are caponized and kept at
liberty on the farm until after the new
year and sold during the months of Janu
ary, February, and March at high prices.
Large quantities of egggs and young fowls
are exported to the cities of northern
Tho breed par excellence for the table
is the "Conconde Malines," better known
In trade as "poulet" or "poularde de Brux
elles." When the chicks are about three months
old they are put in coops of special con
struction, preparatory to fattening for mar
ket. The coops or cages are 24 inches high,
20 Inches .wide, and stand upon four legs 3
feet in height. The top is an adjustable
board to allow the free circulation of air.
The front consists of laths placed at a dis
tance of from 2 to 2 1-2 inches apart. The
receptacle for food is a triangular-shaped
wooden box. Each coop accommodates
about twenty chickens. After the fatten
ing period expires the coops are thoroughly
cleaned and exposed to the air for not less
than fifteen days before receiving other
chickens. The length of tirne necessary
to fatten varies from four to five weeks.
Tho best age for fattening is when the
chicken Is from three to three and a half
months old. Younger than this, they can
not endure captivity, and when older they
cannot become accustomed to it.
Tho food consists of ground buckwheat
mixed with milk, forming a kind of paste,
not too liquid, which is fed to them twice
daily, very early in the morning and at
about 4 o'clock in the afternoon. About
noon pure milk or milk mixed with a little
water is given them. If the fowls refuse
to take the food they are not forced to
eat, but are removed from the coop and
killed; otherwise they grow thin arflose
their market value.

Promptly at half past nine we opened the doors and started to do a land
office business. Didn't havo any too -much time to get this great Clothing
stock into shape. But strenuous efforts on the part of firm aijd employes fin
ally succeeded, and the most important clothing sale of '90 started In as per
schedule. Values like we offered you today and which we will duplicate to
morrow seem so miraculously low that it didn't seem possible for such a con
dition of low prices to exist. "We couldn't offer such leaders under any other
conditions. But this time we bought at less than we ever did In our career.
Women make bad managers, anyway, and when we secured the magnificent
stock of the late Boston merchant, Jonas H. Kohn, from his widow, we pur
