Washington G, Johnston, member
of tho Board of Public Works, said
to a reporter for the Dkmocuat
"Tho talk that the Ohio Canal will

Is all foolish speculation. Business
on tho canal was never bolter and It
looks as though there would bo no
trouble In securing an appropriation
to assist In conducting canal nlfalrs.
"Although It would bo but a drop
in tho bucket, It Is presumed that
$40,000 may bo secured for tho North

Regarding tho mnttor of appolnt

Mr. Johnston said: "I'll not cross

A very rctnirknlilc Instance of (he
tracing of a criminal by lueaus of a
dream occurred In Ht. Louis. A wotnnu
named Mary Thornton was detained
hi custody for a month, charged with
the murder of her husband. A neck
or so ntur her arrfst she requested to
hco oik! of the prison nlllolals and told
hi id nlie had dreamed that an Individ
ual named George lluy had murdded
her spoute, chine the ofilelul at the
samo tlnio full details of the tragedy
as witnessed hi her vision. The man
Itay uas not suspected at tho time,
hut the prison uuthurltles were so
much Itnpnssed by the woman's ol
vlous earnestness that n search was at
once made for him.
After some delay ho was traced and
charged vilth tho crhne, the details of
the Bainc as sun In the dream helug
rehearsed to hhn. Overcome with as
tonishment, he then and there con
fessed that ho had committed tho
crime. Curiously enough, the woman
had onlj met the murderer once and
believed him to he on the very best of
terms with her husband.
Almost as remarkable was the ease
of a wormm named Dicw, "ho dream
ed one night that her huihaud, a re
tired sailor, hod hoen murdered hy a
peddlir nt a tiravesend tavern, ivhcre
the said husband was In tho habit of
putting up when visiting the town In
question. The llrst news that awaited
her on rising In the morning was that
her spouse had been assassinated at
the very tavern she had been In her ex
traordinary vision, whcicupon she
hurst Into hysterical tears and cried
out that her dream had come true.
Hho calmed down somewhat after a
few hours and then handed the police
ojllclnls an exact description of the
ped'dler'of the vision, giving a minute
account of his dress, which Included a
blue coat of a very peculiar pattern.
Marvelous as the fact may appear, a
m-iu wearing such a coat and follow
ing the occupation of a peddler was
discovered two days later at an Inn
some six miles from Gravcseud, and,
on being taxed with the crime, he at
once nihultted that he was guilty and
that robbery had been tho motive of
the outr.ie. lie waB hanged soon nft

Instance of a crhno being traced by a

member of the mala sex comes from
Rennes, In France, A worthy mer
chant, having quitted his offlco one
Saturday evening, proceeded home to
dinner and after enjojlng a substan
tial meal lay down on tho couch and
fell Into a light dose. A very vivid
dream thou cauio to him wherein he
saw two men of tho burglar type en
gaged hi rifling the safe In his office,
nnd so much Impressed was ho by tho
vision that ho resolved, upon nWoken
lug, to at ouco go to the office and see
that everythlngwasunderlock and key.
Ills amazement may he Imagined
when, on arriving there, he discovered
the door forced and a burglary In prog
ress. To summon a couple of gen
daimes wan tho work of an instant,
nnd five minutes later the thieves, who
proved to be notorious housebreakers,
weio on their way to the police depot,
where the prosecutor told his extraor
dinary story. In view of the fact thnt
the safe contained valuables to the ex
tent of somo thousands of pounds, the
duiini In .question piovcd a very for
tunate one for the dreamer.
How to explain these marvelous man
ifestations, which prove onco more
that Until la bit anger than fiction. Is a
task bejoud the Ingenuity of man to
coiniubi. Perchance the theory of te
lepathy may have something to do with
the mysterious business, hut even that
theoiy would appear rather Inadequate

A skillful forger who moved In the

affair oeetmed In Iloston nnd caused
the greatest excitement of the time.
The foiger, n young man of eight or
nine and twenty, had become acquaint

house ho became a constant guest. One
day the publisher's bankers discovered
that some ouo was forging their client's
signature to various largo checks, and
two detectives were at once Instructed
to look out for the culprit.
Their efforts proved useless, but one
evenlug thcpubllslier's oungest daugh

she saw a ninu whom she descilhcd ns

was communicated to the police, who,
though Inclined to ridicule the same ut
flit- outset, oventually promised to have
the gentleman n question watched,
with the result, that his lodgings were
milled and a complete plant for the
making of hank notes found there. It
