I Notary Public
The growth of The Times' circulation
Indicates that the public is quick to eom
prthend that it Is better to read the latest
news twice a day than to subscribe for
the old-fashioned dally and get it only
once In every twenty-four hours. The
novelty of having half of a rewspapcr
dillvcred in the morning before break
fast and the other half after work is over,
in the evenrg is provinfr extremely popu
lar. Kach half of The Times delivered in
this way contains the latest news up to
the moment of going to prebs, and none
of it Is over twelve hours old.
The Times also publishes a Sunday
edition that Is complete and Interesting.
In addition to Its special matter, 11 fur
nishes the news, foreign, domestic and
local, up to 3 o'clock Sunday morning,
and is therefore much more desirable than
a newspaper that has only six editions a
week. For CO cents a month, or 1 " 3 cents
a day, The Times will supply readers
with a morning and evening edition of
eight pages each and a mammoth Sunday
edition of twenty pages. No oilier news
paper In the world ever offered so much
news for so little money.
FOR A IlETTER SEWUII STSTEIL
The executive committee of the Hoard of
Trade has been prompt in calling the at
tention of the Commissioners to the In
crease of t j phoid fever in certain sections of
the city, at d the apparent necessity of a
better sewer system. The Times has on
several occasions insisu-d that tlio subject
should be thoroughly" investigated But
there are economical as well as sanitary
reasons Tor urging that tins question be
handled with prudence, and the Ccmmis
Eioncrs should be careful how they make
recommendations for improving streets and
increasing our sevrer capacity.
The growth and extension of Washing
Son demands belter sewage system. This
Is conceded by all clatEes of citizens. It Is
necessary to preserve tLe health and well
oeing of tLe public, and after carefully as
certaining how far such an improvement
can go without entering into the sclieni -s
af speculators the Commissioners should
act accordirgiy. During the last Congress,
when the District bond bill for street and
lewer improvement was up for discussion,
the impression prevailed that about half
tbe amount demanded was forthe improve
ment of private property. If the then
current rumor Is true tuch an attempt to
divert public fin ds to private uses should
he prevented, and for that reason the sub
ject of a Lord lean should be thoroughly
The entire community will unite in in
dorsing all legitimate improvements In
Washington. They not only make property
more valuable and Improve its appearance,
but they belter the condition of the public,
nils agitation for Improvements, however,
bbuld not be made to conceal the disignof
chemlng sj collators. Tor that reason the
Commissioners should be careful.
In concluding his reply to the welcom
ing address of the Hon. John W. Douglass
yesterday Mayor Warwick said: "God
rrant that this bell may be the means of
Bringing Georgia nearer to I'cnnsvlvanla
and I'cnitsvlvania nearer lo Georgia and
South Carolina." This was evidently,
in eloquent paragraph from his Atlanta
lddress, or the sentiment would have been
juade to apply to the North and South In
, iteadof torcnns)IvanlaandGeorgla.
The word "liberty,," connected with the
old bell that announced the birth of a great
nation, always awakens patriotic thoughts
andjnsplrcs a feeling that as a people we
have much to be thankful for. Compared
to the rest of tbe world we not only
"Joy great freedom through our excellent
form of government, but arc also more
abundantly blessed with natural te
iourues,whlcb should give each industrtru
person a comfortable living. It will require
patience and good Judgment, however, to
prepare tbo way for all to prosper, and
Instead of trying to bring States nearer to
each other, as Indicated byiltyor Warwick,
we should unite In leveling social conditions
and In bringing our abandanco within tho
teach of tbo struggllrg masses. That
should be the popular, patriotic sentiment.
Time and business enterprise will bring
both States and communities nearer to
each other. It requires no liberty bell to
ring the way to closer trade relations when
there is wealth in sight and mines and for
ests to conquer. The hum of factory wheels
and the chink of dollars are more potent In
establishing friendship between opposing
sections than the sweetest note of freedom
that ever greeted the down trodden, tor
money, money, is the ruling power. It is
that power whteh grai-ps our opportunities
and puts off iremascawlihthccrumbs that
arelefc, and lo find a way to more nearly
equalize conditions should be the subject
of our patriotic efforts.
More equal conditions would result In
more general prosperity. Therefore we
should endeavor to bring the extremes
of society nearer to each other instead of
troubling ourselves about the different
States. The more general this desideratum
becomes, thesooner It wlllbe brought about,
and the text of every liberty bell sentiment
after this should be the ringing out of the
extremes of society and the bringing within
reach of all tho great opportunities thl.
THE MONROE DOCTRINE.
It is confidently expected that the ulti
matum sent to England by Secretary OIney
on the Venezuelan question will finally
decide tbe cxisti ncc of the Monroe doctrine.
That widely-talked of instrument has
been much Interpreted and little understood.
It is generally supposed to ben mortgage of
South America and Central America held
by the United States and to be foreclosed
only when a foreign nation undertakes to
collect a debt or to take possession of terri
tory lo satisfy a claim It also has a sort
of a liberty bell attachment that jingoes
every time a little Ilrc-eatlng republic gets
into trouble, and in contequenee Uncle Sam
Is kept busy warning Europe that he has a
Monroe title to ever thing south of the
United States except real estate and per
sonal property, which, however, mubl not
be Interfered Ith.
Wlmn Great .Britain has time to fully
masticate the diplomatic pill Secretary
OIney has administered she will find It
an extremely bitter doe. Bat, In order
not to make her swallow It all at once, he
has given- It In two parts, of whiili she
t.he can take her choice. Secretary OIney
declares It to be the belief of this govern
ment that Great Britain Is attempting V
seize territory on the American continent
to which she has no legal right, and lays
the question before her in tho following
First It the qunrrel with Verezuela
Li an ordinary boundary dispute, having Its
origin lu faulty description, hniwrfe-ct
surveys or other misunderstandings, a
refusal to arbitrate the i.ame Is contrary to
pre-edents set by Great brltain her..lf
ard contrary to the practice of all civilized
be.-ond If, on the other hand, asappears
to b2 the case, nnd as Is the Ix'lief of the
President or the United States, tliedlsputo
as to the location of a boundary line is a
mere disguise under which Gre-at Britain
Is attempting by superior for-e to extend
her territorial possessions in America,
this Is directly loI.uiu of the Monroe
doctrine, and will neer be submitted to
by the United States.
The question now for Great Britain to
consider is whether it shall be a Dcn
raven fluke, an arbitration of tbe bound
ary dipnteor ironclads and coffee.
Meantime we are finding out that the
Monroe doctrine is a species of a trust
deed on everything in sight but Canada,
for which we neither give nor receive an
The people of Snutli Washington have
gotten cold comfort from the Commis
sioners In the matter of the garbage
crematory. They have been politely, but
none the less decisively, informed tliat
their protest amounts to nothing, and if
that does not salt them they can go to
court and try tlulr luck nt law.
Terhaps they will do so, perhaps nft;
bt cause litigation of this sort Is quite an
expensive luxury. But they will probably
reason, as they have set forth in their
remonstrance, that the crematory would
deteriorate the value of their projierly,
and chat It Is worth the while to make an
effort to prevent this.
It would seem that In arriving at their
decision the Commissioners have consulted
the convenience ot the contractor rather
than the property Interests and com Tort
ot the people of South Washington. Yet
one would think that it matters far less
to have the contractor's carts go a some
what longer distance than to Injure the
property values of a whole section of the
city. The decision ot the Commissioners
Is the more unfortunate because, as The
Times recently poicted out. South Wash
ington has been heretofore ami under the
different forms of local government
treated In a sort of step motherly fashion.
In spite of all assurances given by the
Commissioners that the crematory will
not prove a nuisance, either to the health
or the comfort or the people in that
neighborhood, there is a strong suspicion
that they ore entirely too confident on
this point. At any rate, as The Times has
already suggested, there are plenty lo
calities on the confines of the District
where the objections to this establish
ment would be reduced to a minimum.

TO TEST SHIPS' MODELS

A subject that has cngageil the attention
of naval experts for a number of years. Is
the testing ot naval vessels In advance of
their construction. Experimental tanks,
as they aro called, have been established
In almost every country in Europe, In which
the models of both war and commerce
ships are subjected lo preliminary trials
as to their Bpecd, stability, friction, and
turning qualities before tbe work of actual
construction Is begun.
England, France, Germany nnd Italy
test their mode-Is in this manner, and these
experiments have been found to be of
The construction department of the navy
ot this country has been trying for several
years to secure the establishment of such
an experimental tank at the Navy Yard
here, where the models otivarshlps could
beglven a trial, tosettlelinixirtantqucstlons
In connection with the construction.
A recommendation was first made by
Chief Constructor Wilson, who asked for
an appropriation ot SGO.000 for that pur
pose. Congress has so far never been
"induced, however, to consider the question.
Chief Constructor FJillip Hlchborn, how
ever, the successor to Constructor Wilson,
has made detailed reports to tbe head of
the department, and the next Congress will
bo asked for an appropriation of $100,000
for the purpose of buildlug an experimental
tank at the Washington Navy Yard, lu the
slip between the old shlphouse and the main
branch of the Potomac.
COST OF THE TANK.
In an interview Willi Chief Constructor
Hlchborn, he said that Hie Bureau de
sired to renew niwt earnestly previous
recommendations In relation toltlie es
tablishment of an experimental tank.
"One ot the greatest obstacles cn
cosntired by this Bareau In designing ves
sels," said that gentleman, "is the de
termination of a reasonably exact pced
which can bo obtalued with a ship of
known displacement, horse-power, and
underwater form. At present our only
data for such puriwes is derived from
more or less Inaccurate reports of the
performance ot foreign vessels, and is
nccessaril very unsatuf.ictory.
"The Bureau in the liast has not even
had the Iwuefit of experience gained from
thorough and cxhauntlve speed trials of
our own ships, exigencies of the service
usually preventing a complete series ot
jirogre-ssive speed trials, such as have
Yen found ot so much value In other
services. Tho lack of reliable data, which
can only be accurately obtained from these
two sources, his bamiiered the Ilurvau
in Its previous design work, and placed
it at a decided disadvantage In fixing
upon the approximate speed to be ex
pected from any glve.i design.
tank," continued the chief constructor, "has
a private establishment on the Clyde,
which has had ono inope ration for ten years.
Aside from the scientific value of the In
formation derived, they claim that it lias
been tho m'-arri ot saving them thousands
ot do'.la rs by enabling them to determine ac
curalely the best form of ship to attain a
certain speed, the dimensions of the ship
being determined by certain definite con
siderations." BEGAN IN ENGLAND.
Expcruii-els to determine the resistance
of ship3 in advance of construction by
towing models of the pre posed ships, were
nmimoM-vtl by the late I)r Wlili.im Kroi.dc,
in 1872, In a lai'kbJilt by hliuat Torquay.
Tins tank was 2e0 fe.'tlong, 3G feet wide,
and lOfcetdeep. andliiltexperiineiitSTi-ere
carried on for tl.e Adm-fllity, and in con
nection with the towing exiiernicnts of
the Greyhound, certain laws and deductions
were established beyond question.
Since the death of Dr. Froude in 1S70
tlio work has been carried on by his son,
R. E. Froade, and many useful and valuable
results have been obtained. The designs
ot many proposed ships have been altered
after model trials, notably in the case of the
Polyphemus and the Medway class of gun
boats, the deductions being afterward
verified by the performance ot the vessels.
In 1882 a tnnkof atout tie tame dimen
sions, and with practlcajly identical ap
plianccs, were constructed by Denny Bros.,
ot Dunbarton, in which many thousands
of experiments have been conducted -with
both engineering and commercial euc
cess, the tank having cnubled tliem, as
the case in point, lo successfully construct
a high speed vessel for the Belgian gov
ernment under cordilions so rigid, that
under ordinary circumstances surety ot
fulfilling them would have been impos
sible. The establishment of an experimental
tank would not only benefit the naval
service, but would greatly promote the
shipbuilding interests ot the country at
large, by furnishing reliable information
as to tbe future performance of new types
of commercial vessels, that would aid
American shipbuilders to compete on more
equal terms with foreign yards In which
similar information is already available.
MADE A LAUGE OUTLAY.
The British admirably considered the
results obtained so valuable that in 18S6
a new tank was constructed at Haslar,
near Portsmouth, and the apparatus at
Torquay was removed to that place, and
Installed there with many improvements
and additions under the charge of Mr.
R. E. Froude.
The latest apparatus constructed Is that
installe-d by the Russian government, at
St. Petersburg, In 1S82. To duplicate
such a plant, including cost ot all appara
tus and the necessary baildings, but ex
clusive, of ground, would cost about 585,
000. The experiment may develop the fact
that the; intended lines produce an abnor
mally high resistance, or are in some other
way unsuitable In which case the model la
easily altered or a new one made, and the
ship saved from probable failure.
In conilucting the experiments abso
lute nicety of observation and measure
ment are required. The model Is care
fully ballasted to the exact drart and
trim to cornspond with the proposed
displacement. These factors are observed
by inserting needles at Intervals around
the proposed water line projecting hori
zontally, and the model is adjusted so
that all the needles Just break the water.
In this condition the weight ot the
model, plus the ballast, should agree
with the calculated displacement. In
towihg. the change of trim is carefully
observed and automatically registered by
the machine and exact observations of
the currents, caused by the drafts of
air and by the movement of the model
are made, and the general deductions cor
The models are made of paraffine wax;

tin-America ii Article.
Valdeniar Faulovitch, a yours Ku&sLin,
who 'was recently nt a Eutfalo hotel, told
an Express reporter some interest Ins facts
about Gustav Jovanovitch, w ho owns more
do-s and fleas than any other man in the
worid. Jovanovitch is tbe cattle Ling of
the Russian steppes.
He owns over 1,500,000 sheep, and that
Is why he has so many doss. They are all
of the bhrpherd breed, and number aliova
35,0UO. Jovanovitcn's sheep and dnsrs
have descended to him from his forefathers
and, needless to say, he is immensely rich.
The dogs are all intelligent creatures,
though ota hui.dred breeds, and all perform
their offices as faithfully as tbe mo-t petted
shepherd dos of the New York faniu.
"You can imagine that it costs a great
deal of money to feed such a number ot
animals," said Mr. I'aulovitch. "They are
well kept and fed, else they would b forced
to turn on their flocks. Jovanovitch has
great barn liUe structures for the dogs"
shelter, and scores ot men to care for them.
Great core ot the brutes' health is taken,
and a dog rarely goes mad. The millionaire
sheep owner bays doc biscuit by the ton
InFrancetoguardagainst distemper. Fleas,
ot course, are a necessity anions tuch a
great number of dogs, though sulphur baths
are provided for their extrnulnntlon.
"Tbe fleas, however, not only pay the
expenses of the baths, but put quite a bit
ot money Into tbe pockets of tbe dog
keepers. In St. I'elersburK there is a great
demand nmons tbe wealthy for performing
fleas, but only the bigge-st and most In
telligent are fitted for the work. Of course,
among 35,000 dogs one has a great choice
ot fleas, and Markovitch, the head dog
keeper, has a corner ou the performing
r he big, muscular, well groomed and
Intelligent fleas which hesenilstothecapltal
are taught to perform little tricks. They
dance, too, aud I have heard that one flea,
whlchcould skip aspiderwebrope. was sold
to one of tho court ladles for 2,000 rubles.
Performln; fleas, once taken from nature's
home, become very delicate and have to bo
housed and fed with thegrcatest care.
"The Czar once went to visit Jovanovitch
at his great house on thesteppes, and joked
with him about his dogr, asking It he was
acquainted with all ot them. For answer
the sheepman led him to the door and blow
a blast on his hunting horn. Then from the
long thatched kennels that were spread
for n quarter of a mile around there arose
a howl in unL-on from each ot the 33,000
dogs, nrd before it had died out 1-10,000
feet wcie flying over the ground In the
direction ot Jovanovitch and his royal
"When they reachcil the place all lay
down obediently, so that the ground was
covered with a mat ot dogs fur a great
distance. Come, your majesty. said
Jovanovitch, 'the ground Is damp, but my
dogs have made jou a carpit." Ard the
Czar and "Ills friend walked out to tbe
kennels over the strong brutes.
"The Czar sent Jovanovitch a decora
tion," concluded Mr. Faulovitcb,. "and ho
