them in training under the direct supervision
ol Captain Anson, with a view of developing
a base ball team, supplying emergencies and

a club can reserve ti men, will make unen

there she wou'd get justice. "Jems Lover o(

Mobile, Ala., October 19. Three counter
feiters, Thomas II. and Oliver llohannon and
James Hallowell, alias Sprague, who was
shadowed from Louisville, Ky., by Govern
ment detectives, were raided this morning in
the suburbs by detectives and police. Italian
non attempted to escape, but was wounded
and captured. The other two were secured in
the house together. At the same time were
captured plaster moulds and a battery, etc.,
all in use; also 114 counterfeit $1 pieces.
Oliver llohannon is supposed to be an ex
convict. He was formerly a telegraph opera
tor, llefore the arrests a great deal of money
was uttered by the gang.
New York, October 19. Edward Hovey,
the slayer of bit sister-in-law, Mrs. Fanny
Vermilica, was hanged in the Tombs prison
this morning. Notwithstanding his physician's
treatment and the efforts of his spiritual ad
viser, the murderer spent a restless night. Two
Deputy Sheriffs kept constant vigil. Ilovey
looked more dead than alive when he arose
to dress hlmsell. When his breakfast was
brought him Hovey dragged hit chair toward
the table upon which the meal was placed and
seated himself in the chair with a heavy sigh.
He hesitated, drew back from the table and
said he would eat nothing. Father Dureoguet,
the Rev. Mr. Gilbert and Deputy Warden
Finley prevailed upon Hovey to sip the coffee.
Soon after arising, he had been given a dose
of chloral, and he now wanted whisky. It
was agreed that he should have some stimu
lant before being led out to the gallows. He
presented an awful picture of despair and
woe. The moment he was placed under It his
legs were tied, the black cap was drawn, the
noose adjusted and quicker than it takes lo
tell, the rope was cut and Hovey lunged.
Washington, October 19. The Secretary
of Stale his addressed a letter to the Secretary
of the civil service commission in reply to an
inquiry as to whit qualification! are necessary
for service, saying that the bureau ol the Stale
department will require a special examination
for admission. He says, quoting cx-Secreliry
Flih, that the clerical force of that department
Is small and should have the personil confi
dence or the head of the department. A
knowledge of international law, practical
familiarity with many foreign languages, and
a power of reticence are also requisite, Ihe
presence of which qualifications Is to be as
certained by the test of cipeiience, or intimate
personal knowlege of the nitty which can not
be determined by any examination by a
llotn! The Secretary then goes on to say
that It is necessary that most of the clerks of
the department of State should have at least
sufficient knowledge of one or more foreign
languages to read them In original document.
"Nevertheless, it Is not absolutely necessary
even that a clerk should have this qualifica- I
lion, as nis aiiiiny in niner uirccilons may
more than compensate for its lack, but it is
always necessary that the employes of this
department should hive a fiir knowledge of
French, German, Spanish or Italian, Under
these circumstances I suggest that special ex
amination be given lo all applicants who may
wish to enter the departments, which shall
confirm in some measure the examination
heretofore, at one time required In the case ol
applicants for certain grades of consulates
and now required in case of applicants for

would bo Justified la rnonoimllliiK tho wholo
of tho work In tho Slate, but they
aro Itbcruland otrer licenser! to oory other
contractor to uo tho patent 1111 fair terms- In
othur words, they have paid tor tlio uso ot tho

tho same. Tho utility of the Mchilllnircr patent
has been fully proved, and. If as aomo contrao
torsasncrt, ono of lis many tcnturcs uro uso

reasonable, nnd It will rrlvo tho city better

Into Vo Any Public Streets?
Inasmuch as contractors for building houses
aro using tho streets, plazas and pavements as
stono yards, for sawing and dressing stone,
greatly to tho Inconvenience and annojanco
or the public, I deslm to call tho attention nf
tho "City Fttthenr" (step fathers would seem
tho most appropriate title) to tho decision In
City of Waco vs. Powell, ft! Texas, 218; tho
court said: "Tho streets of n city do not bo
long to any ono man of tho city, but to tho
publlo at largo, and every person has a right
to uso tho streots of a city, In convoying his
person or property from ono place to another.
This Is tho only right ho lias In tho streets. Ho
has no right to uso tho land set aiurt tor
streets, for a hubltatlon, for a pasture, or for
anything else, except to travel on and over,
than ho has to uso any other person's land for
that purpose, and for the like reason, becauso
It Is not his property." "The slrecU being tho
property of tho public, whoever represents
tho public, not only havo a right, but It Is
their duty, to wo Unit these streets shall sub
serve tho Interests or tboao who with to uso
them for their designed purposes," Ita man
can not lit hla halltallon In a street, or uso It
for a pasture or for anjlhlng elso but a
thoroughfare, what right havo contractors to
uso streets for stone )ards,ln which tn dress
and saw stone? Tho streets aro blocked
up, narrowed and Impeded by thus being
turned Into stone yards. Foot passengers, be
ing unable to walk on the pavement, are
rorccd to travel In tho street, where thoy nro
In constant jierll of bolng run over by ve
hicles recklessly driven.
Tho Bupremo court says It Is tho "duty of
whoever represents tho publlo (too city
fathers and Recorder) to see that the streets
subservotbe Interests of thoso who wish to
uso them for their designed purposes" as
thoroughfares for travel nnd transportation.
At least ono-fourtu of Alamo plaza Is now
usod as a stono yard; Comtnerco stroct Is used
for a similar purpose, and Houston and Bole
dad, at their Intersection, aro turned Into stono
yards, greatly to tbo Inconvenience and dan
ger of tho publlo. Houston street Is blocked
up almost to the street railway track, and foot
passengers and vehicles can scarcely pass along
the obstructed stroct. When foot passengers
quit tho pavement thoy aro momentarily lu
danger of being run over, crippled or killed by
vehicles. It la no small danger. Havo con
tractors tho right to anpmprlato tho publlo

differenco Is made Is a mailer for publlo
Merchants cannot possibly receive nnd ship
goods without using tho pavo In front or roar

attously reiiorted, much less arrested, for
frivolous things which cannot be tortured Into

purposes of legltlmato business belongs, of
rlaht. to nersons whose nrcmlaca abut nn tlm
street, and they should not bo molested for
such legitimate uso of the adjoining pavement.
