been run economically, and the result
Is to be seen In the Controller's olllce.
The city Is now starting out on a nuw
year with absolutely clean books, and
without false balances that have been
carried for years. There has been tin
entire change In the system, und within
a few months, or a year at the latest,
It will begin to be appreciated. A He

follows to the Knglc:
The largest sailing vesucl In the world
will come to Ilaltlnmre In February to
load her llrst cargo and begin her tlrst
oyage from this port. She will spread
10,000 square yards of canvas and carry
over 5,000 tons of coal to San Francis
co, a voyage of 10,000 tulles. Tho ves
sel Is tho transatlantic four-mast screw
steamer Persian Monarch of tliu Wil

don. She Is now at Newport News,
Va., being converted Into a full-rigged
four-masted sailing ship. Her musts
are Just one foot Hhort of thu height of
the column of the Washington monu
ment. From tho keel to the topmast
point of the ship's masts Is HI feet. The
musts from deck to truck measure 150
feet; the fore, main and cross-Jack
yards are !:i feet: the bowsprit and Jib
boom, 10 feet; length of spanker boom,
5il feet; royal, 5(1 feet; topgallant, I5
feet; upper topsail, 85 feel, and lower
yard, 7a feet. The lower musts and
yards nro of steel, the masts being !U
Inches in thickness at the deck. The
ship 'will carry !W sails, requiring
enough canvas to make an awning a

sail contain 11,080 feet of canvas each.
From the stern to the point of thu bow
sprit the vessel measures -111 feut, Is
lido feet between perpendiculars, III

depth of hold. If stood ou hor stem,
with her bow pointed heavenward, her

The iron hull of the vessel retains Ms
original shape, with tho exception that
the main deck has been cut down be
tween the houses. She retains her four
bulkheads and water-ballast apart
ments, but her 500-horscpowcr com
pound engines und coal bunkers have
been taken out. On deck there are
three houses, the forecastle for .'I- sea
men; a bridge-house amidships, and a
poop-deck. In the bridge-house is a
cabin measuring I- by l- feet, llulshed
In mahogany for the captain und
mates. Thu olllcers' rooms und three
staterooms for passengers are llulshed
In black walnut. Steam will be used
t.i hoist sails, load cargo and work the
capstan. Capl. Collier, formerly of
l.lnt Pros.' lines, will probably bo
master of the vessel. It Is said she
will change her llrltlsh register to an
American one, and Insure with Ameri
can underwriters. It cost $75,000 to
convert the ship Into a sailing vessel.

The Legislature has been In session
since Jan. 0, and has accomplished lit
tie beside the election of Culloni to the
United States Senate. A number of
bills and resolutions have been Intro
duced In both branches of tho Assem
bly and referred to committees not
formed. In the main they have been
unimportant and of non-polltlctil Im
port. The Senate committees were an
nounced last week, and thai body Is
ready ror work. One of the most Impor
tant committees Is the conuuitteu on
Appropriations. The bill providing for
the reconstruction of the Insane bos
ptal at Anna and appropriating ?11K,.
ooo for a llreproof building will bo one
or the llrst bills before that committee.
The appropriation was miggested by
tiov. Altgeld In a message to the Senate
and House. There Is no doubt but that
thu bill will be uihlied through, In or

selling to sixty days between May and
November, Introduced in the House,
there will probably bo other bills pro

bill was the ciiuac of the most bitter

One of the bills In the Senate which
has caused considerable comment Is
Hauler's, dellulng anarchy and llxltig

have been introduced In both branches.
These will probably be merged Into
committee bills ami reintroduced.

Mr. William O'Conuell, tho popular
State street wine merchant, was waited
upon the other day ami urged to lie
come a caudlilute Tor West Town Col
lector. Mr. O'Conuell thanked the
delegation, but assured them that as
lung us he was a business man lie would
never mix lu politics. Mr. O'Conuell
stands high with all who know him,
ami, should he ever enter politics,
would make things hum.
When we pass a chicken coop In
front of a grocery store, nud hear u
rooster crow, In spite of the fact that ho
Is as miserable and unfortunate as
rooster can well be, we wonder what
ho Is crowing about. Some men nra
tho same way about bragging; It Is In
them, nnd must como out, whether
there is any occasion for It or not.
