Crowing Sentiment for ?in
POWER OF COMMISSION
It Has Never Been Discharged and Can
Go Ahead and Expend tho Sum
Set Aside by the Leg?
While there Is strong opposition from
the older element of the people, there
is n growing sentiment among ' the
younger generation that the State ought
to bulid a new Capitol, Instead of spend?
ing any lnrge sum in ah effort to repair
and renovate the old structure so dear
from Its historic associations. Tho Capi?
tol Commission, It la understood, nre
rather embarrassed ns to what should
be ?lone. There Is now available about
187,000 of the ?1O0.OOO appropriated by the
General Assembly nearly two years ago,
but It wns appropriated for a sp?cifie pur?
pose, and under such conditions that It Is
not practicable to expend it to advantage
The sum Is not sulliclent to reconstruct
tho building along the lino outllnod by
th? architects in tho plans originally
drawn. Every cent of tho money can be
spent putting the Capitol In good repair,
ilre-prooflng, stuccoing and painting nnd
putting on tx metnl roof, vtltli other In?
terior change. In fact, the sum available
was found Insufficient oven for, this pur?
pose, for when bids wore asked for on tho
plnns agreed upon, n?>t one was within
the sum at hand.
COMMISSION HAS MONEY.
The commission, consisting of the Gw
ernor nud members of tho Sonnte and
House, hns never beon discharged, and
still has power to go on and expend the
sum appropriated within the limitations)
prescribed In the Joint resolution creating
the body and clothing It with power.
Composlto plans embracing features of
those submitted by Nolnnd anal Bnskcr
vill, of this city, and Fry? and Chest or?
inan, of Jjynchburg, wore accepted by tljp
commission, but sinre tho 'bidders on the
contrnct under those plans did not bid
low enough to warrant award of tho con?
tract, nothing hns been done. There the
matter stands. It would seem, that, hav?
ing accepted tho plans of these architects,
they have first call upon tho work, nnd
If tho State is under obligations to ac?
cept any plans^for the use of tho 1100,000.
It would seem to bo thos? of the archi?
tects named. The only action taken by the
General Assembly at the session Just
closed wns to recommend tho immediate
construction of a new roof, hut this was
passed only by the Senate. Tho House
declined to concur In the resolution.
Just what. If anything, the commission
will do. Is In great doubt. Certainly It
is expected to put n now motnl roof on
the structure, but whether It will nt
teinpt to do mo before the General As?
sembly reconvenes Is not announced. In
the event tho present roof worn removed
nnd the architects deemed It Inadvisable
to expend any largo sum on the build?
ing, it might bo necessary to expend
something moro thnn for tho provision
<af n roof.
A KKW Til'n.TilNO.
There nre those who boldly cast nsiflo
?sentiment nnd say Hint what the Slate
really needs Is not Iho repair of the old
structure, but a now Capitol; modern In
construction and adequate to present
needs and those for another century to
come. The old one miiibt he patched up
nnd kept for n museum for tho snko of
Its glorious past and as a concession .to
the sentiment that would preserve It.
but It is estimated that a new Capitol
could be constructed without Issuing a
dollar of bonds nnd merely using a por?
tion of the normal revenues ns fast as
tho building progressed. , Those ? who
boldly urge the building of n new Capitol
point to t??o fact that tho Corporation
Commission has to secure rooms In the
City Hall now. nnd that a new court?
room for the Court of Appeals nud bet?
ter quarters for many of the officers in
the Capitol nre already needed,' not to
mention larger nnd better ventilated
bal?n for the two houses of the General
'Assembly, offices for the Governor nnd
On the other hand, thr-ro Is a strong,
though by no moons universal, senti?
ment against the relocation of the pres?
ent Cnnhol to/.tho category of museums
and r'tiieS!' Rom? contend that It Is cood
enniurh for the present; ns If hns befii
for the past, nnd that It will be years
lw?tore any other will be neeflefl. They
oven deelnre that the present structure
Is entirely He.fo nnd good for years lo
come. As to the future, they do not at?
tempt, to look so far ahead n? to nntlet

? ARE WOMEN CONSIDERATE? %
W Written by the Late MAX O'REEL. 9
SIM'Nli so much of my timo
singing tlie praises nnd extoll?
ing tlie virtues of women that I
set myseir to thinking the other
day, and Said to tho sumo self:
"Now, surely women have not
the monopoly of eaverytblng that is good
uiida-r the sun; Is there not some virtue,
at least, some tiuallty, which we mon
possess offener than women?" And I
thought hard and finally succeeded, I bo
llcve. In discovering one. l.ndles, I ntn
of opinion that wo mon, ns a rule, nro
more consid?ralo than you of the feelings
of others. Tliat consideration is tho
characteristic and host trnlt of the per?
fect gentleman. Some women possess It;
those whom I called, in an article pub?
lished soma timo ngo, gentlemanly wo?
Rut let us examino the case for women.
?Women nre not so punctual Ha men,
and punctuality In keeping nn appoint?
ment and engagement of nil sorts is the.
best proof of one consid?ration for the
feelings of Other people.
All hough they may be members of the
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals, women will not get out of nn
omnibus when It slops ba>fore No. 52; they
will let M slnrt again nnd then call on the
conductor to stop at No. 64, which is their
destination, "Women aro terrible," once
said to mo the conductor of a I/Ondon
omnibus. "Why, sir, some of them won?
der wo can't lake them to their bed?
Women will go In n shop, wondering
what, it is they want, oftener wondering
whether they want anything at all. They
will settle down at n counter and make
tho ?insistant spread before them, one af?
ter the other, all tho goods ho has In his
department, loaVk at them, turn up their
noses nt them, nnd go away without any
apology, without even expressing the rrr
gret they did not find anything they
wanted, much less say to the poor man:
"I nm sorry to have made you waste your
time." Way bo, before leaving the
premises, they will buy a yard of half-nn
Inch -wide ribbon for ten cents.
Now, I havo always admired my box
making a purchase In a shop. They ato
simply great. "I want," they will say,
"a dozen pnlrs of socks, of such color, of
such size, and the best you havo Rot?
Oood?You are sure they are'tho right

But see the women. Although they havo
found th? exact nrtlcle they want, you
must not ?upposo that they are satisfied.
They know they could not get anything
more to their taste, anything more suit?
able, but they will let tho poor shop
girl go on showing lier goods that havo
to be untied, unfolded and afterward re?
folded and rotled. That's not I heir busi?
ness. They enjoy looking at the Uilngs.
They have nothing else to do. it does not
enter their bends that they are maklnn
tho shop girl wnsto her time nnd tire
herself, that if they would only go awn.y.
that girl might make money with an?
other customer. They will not talto all
that into consideration.
It Is Uio custom In France, when you
ask a street car conductor for tliu changa
of a five frano piece, to give him ono or
two sous for his trouble. Men very Beldam
fail to give him a tip for this little ser?
vice rendered. But I havo senn women
ask for tho change of a twenty franc
piece, receive it without saying "Thank
you," much less giving a tip to tho con?
ductor, who had perhaps emptied his
money bag of till bis slWer to oblige them,
but count nnd recount that change with

No doubt tho lack of consideration for
oilier people's feelings which we often
notice in women's Character comes from
'tills notion, with which they generally
go through Ufo, that "you could not re?

Indorse from the bottom of my heart,

Gleanings in the World of Science.
What most excites our wonder at the
present day Is, perhaps, the extreme sen?
sitiveness of man-made Instruments. Tho
bolometer of Dr. .Langley amazed us
twenty years ago by measuring tempera?
tures to the ouc-hiindredth-thouHandth of
a degree, but as now Improved it records
easily the one-liiindrcdth-mllltonth of a
degree. The coherer responds to electric
waves Incalculably reduced by scattering
to all parts of a'sphere having a radius
of X000 miles. The most delicate balance
may weigh a millionth of a gram, and
the spectroscope may show a billionth of
n gram or less of some substances, but
the electrometer Is now dealing with the
, even more inconceivably small. Wo aro
told, in fact, that If 1,000 grums of thorium
gave out the, thotisandoth of tt gram of
emanation In n million years, the radia?
tion from one gram In one second would
be sufficient to affect tho electrometer.
Some bacteria, large fungi and rotten
wood are known to glow In the dark,
but shrubs and flowering plants are not
usually credited with the property of
phosphorescence. Dr. .H. Beckurtz. how?
ever, has lately discovered an old record
of phosphorescnco In an Indian grass
known to the Brahmins ns "dlotlslimnti."
The account Is of much Interest to boton
Ists, but, while the plant has not been
Identified with certainty, it Is concluded
that the observer was led Into error by
phosphorescent bacteria on the grass.
