Is Said That Such Is the Decision
of the Northern Pacific Eepresen
Che News Said to Have Been Sent
a Cipher Dispatch From St.
Text of the Resolution Introduced
by the Chairman of the House
TACOMA, Wash., Feb. 6.—Cipher ad
vices from the chiefs of the federated
Northern Pacific employes at St. Paul,
indicate that a strike will be ordered
Tuesday, if there be no change in the
situation at that time.
A man prominent in organized rail
road circles, who claims to be in receipt
of the cipher dispatch, says:
"There is no question in my mind
that a general strike has been ordered,
and that as soon as General Manager
Kendrick and Receiver Oakes return to
St. Paul from Milwaukee the ulti
matum of ths railroad men will
be laid before them. Should the
Northern Pacific men go out I
am satisfied that the Union Pacific
system would at once declare a strike
and a war would be inaugurated that
might prove fearful in its consequences.
"The employes have been notified
from St. Paul that the order secured by
the receivers restraining the employes
from striking, is, according to the best
legal advices, unconstitutional and ille
gal, and the company will be wholly
responsible for whatever results may
follow an attempt to enforce the order."
The Labor Committee Wants Judge
WASHINGTON, Feb. 6.—The resolution
for which Representative McG-ann,
chairman of the labor committee of the
house tried to secure consideration, has
has been printed. The resolution proper
is as follows:
Resolved, That the committee on
judiciary of the house be, and is hereby
directed to make such investigation into
all the matters and things herein alleged,
and to report to this house whether or
not the Hon. Judge Jenkins, judge of
the United States circuit court for the
seventh circuit, has therein abused pow
ers or process of said court, or oppres
sively exercised the same or
has used his office as
such judge to intimidate or
restrain the employes of the Northern
Pacific railroad, or the officers of labor
organizations to which said employes or
any of them were affiliated, in the ex
ercise of their rights and privileges
under the laws of the United States, and
if they shall find that said judge has
ubr.red the process of said court, as
alleged, or oppressively exercised the
powers of his judgeship of said court to
the injury of the employes of said railroad
and others, then to report whether such
act or doings of said judge warrant the
presentment of articles of impeach
ment therefor and to further report
what action, if any, should be taken by
congress to prevent a recurrence of the
conditions now laid by said order, and

the said Northern Pacific road, those

HOW THE HOMELESS ARE CARED FOR
Municipal Lodging Houses Minus the Sting
of Charity—No Chance For Politics In It.
The Saturday Night Entertainments and
How They Are Conducted.
One Saturday in Glasgow I tramped
about the poorer portions of the town
till midnight, first in company with the
head of a- municipal department and
afterward with an estimable bailie who
is renowned in the town for his opposi
tion to all things alcoholic. My tour be
gan soon after dusk, which comes aston
ishingly early in these northern lati
tudes, giving one hardly time to salute
the sun between dawn and dark. Our
points of call in the earlier half of our ex
pedition were the municipal lodging
houses, those places of agreeable refuge
which the city established 30 years ago
for the purpose of selling decent shelter
to the tower elements of its floating pop
On Saturday night in winter time
some form of entertainment is devised
for the 2,000 municipal lodgers. The
entertaining talent volunteers for the
performance. It is part of the duty of
the city committee having in charge
these hotels for the poor to secure on
Saturdays the assistance of amateurs
who can sing or dance or tell a story or
give an athletic show. There are seven
municipal lodging houses, and in the
recreation rooms of each these Saturday
night pleasantries are conducted. Every
concert, or magic lantern show, or what
ever it may be, is presided over by a
chairman, who volunteers for the pur
pose from the members of the city gov
The gentlemen so presiding are not
municipal politicians, because, as I have
previously explained, they have in Glas
gow no municipal pontics, but merely
an administration. Mr. Chairman, there
fore, is not in quest of votes, and if he
were his services in a lodging house
would ill requite him. Nor is there any
appearance of charity, condescension,
nor any other untoward thing in this
business. The entertainment is carried
on very much as a concert is aboard an
Atlantic liner—with this exception, that
no collection is made. The municipality
is put to no expense in the matter, and
it may be assumed that the chairmen
are put to no inconvenience. They are
usually men who devote a large part of
their lives to philanthropic work.
A Saturday night's audience at one of
these municipal lodging houses comprises
a wide assortment of characters and a
considerable distribution of race. There
are sailors who have got hard up in port,
soldiers recently discharged. There are
poor devils who are spending their last
pennies for shelter and food, which will
take them over to the Monday morning,
when they may be able to pick up some
where somehow pennies enough to last
them over another night. And there are
laborers in regular employment, arti
sans, too, who are not hard up, but who
are lodging here while they are at work
in the town. There are of course men
who have seen better days and men who
by no possibility can ever see any worse
ones. Some are here from necessity,
some from motives of economy, and all
of them are fairly comfortable while they
The Saturday night entertainments are
voluntary altogether. The entertainers
give their services, and the audiences are
not asked for a penny. There were from
200 to 350 men in each of the recreation
rooms which we visited, and hearty ap
plause gave evidence of the delight of
the men, who appeared to enjoy them
A municipal lodging house is a large,
well lighted and well ventilated build
ing. At the entrance there is an office,
where the applicant for lodging pays his
3£d. or 4|d. and receives a ticket en
titling him to the privileges of the house.
On the ground floor there are three large
apartments, one used as a sort of eating
room, another as a sitting room, another
as a kitchen. The lodgers supply their
own food and cook it themselves, having
the free use of the kitchen fires and the
steam heaters for this purpose. The house
is in charge of a superintendent, with
At 8 o'clock in the evening the dormi
tories are opened. These dormitories are
spacious rooms divided by partitions 8
or 9 feet high into small compartments,
each compartment containing abed ar
ranged in the fashion of a stateroom
berth on an Atlantic liner. The only
difference between the threepence half
penny and the fonrpence halfpenny ac
commodation is that the higher price en
titles the lodger to an extra blanket.
Lodgers are admitted to bed until about
1 a. m. They must arise not later than
8 o'clock in the morning. The premises
are kept scrupulously clean by the staff
of assistants. A well fitted laundry at
tached to the place is constantly at work
washing the bedding.—Cor. Boston Her
Ancient Preservation of the Dead.
Herodotus gives a good description of
the manner in which the early Ethiopi
ans preserved their dead. Having thor
oughly dried the corpse, they plastered
it over with a paste made of gypsum and
then painted the face and exposed parts
so as to make them look as natural as
possible. Dead bodies served in this
manner remained intact for hundreds of
years.—St. Louis Republic.

A throe of the heart.
He Was Satisfied.
The old boarder, after an experience of
20 years or more, at last got into a place
which seemed to him to be as near the
ideal as he cared about. When he had
been there a week, he went one night to
a religious service, and one of the work
ers approached him.
"Are you a Christian?" was the first
"I hope so," he replied humbly,
"though I don't belong to the church."
"Ah, my friend, there is where you are
"Possibly 1 am."
"Don't you feel that you area sinner?"
"Well, I'm not perfect, I suppose."
"Don't you want to go to heaven?"
The old boarder braced up.
"If you'd asked me that 10 days ago,"
he said, "I should have answered 'yes'
promptly, but now I'm in a boarding
house where they don't have stewed
prunes, skimmilk, hash, paralytic coffee,
dried apple pies, soiled napkins, tough
meat, a piano on each floor, gossiping
boarders and a lot more discomforts, and
I'm afraid to take any risk in leaving it,"
and the worker gave him up as hopeless.

Blunders of Painters.
Tinoret, an Italian painter, in a pic
ture of the "Children of Israel" gather
ing manna, has taken the precaution to
arm then* with the modern invention of
guns. Cigoli painted the aged Simeon at
the circumcision of the infant Saviour,
and as aged men in these days wear
spectacles the artist has shown his sagac
ity by placing them on Simeon's nose.
In a picture by Verrio of "Christ Heal
ing the Sick" the lookers^ on are repre
sented as standing with periwigs on
heads. To match, or rather exceed,
this ludicrous representation, Durer has
painted "The Expulsion of Adam and
Eve From the Garden of Eden" by an
angel in a dress fashionably trimmed
with flounces. The same painter, in his
scene of "Peter Denying Christ," repre
sents a Roman soldier very comfortably

calcareous and magnesic, with organic
matter, chlorides and a little sulphate of
of lime. Each boiler is allowed to go on
working for about 500 hours before
being cleaned, when it is stopped,
with the water in it, and allowed to cool
down for about a week. The masonry
is allowed to become cold, and then the
tap is opened, also the safety valve, so
that the water runs naturally out of the

not only necessary for the drawing of
his plans, but also incidentally that
which may aid him in the case of any
other survey being made later on.
"This data, you see, really constitutes
a sort of capital or stock in trade, for if
the party owning the land ever wishes
another survey of it for any purpose he
will naturally apply to that same sur
veyor, who, having these old memoran
da, can do the work easier and more
cheaply than any other surveyor. Often
times, after many years have elapsed
and old landmarks have passed away,
those minutes become very valuable.
"Consequently a civil engineer always
wishes to keep these in his own hands,
and men in his employ are not allowed
to make copies of minutes of surveys
which they make while in his employ.

and setting up in business for himself,

ployer's business."—New York Herald.
This method has been in use some five
years and seems to show £hat the ordi
nary hardening of deposits in boilers is
due to the absence of water in them
heated by the brickwork when the boiler
has been emptied by the ordinary meth
od under pressure. It is necessary, how
ever, under this system, to be able to do
without the particular boiler for some

The Sense of Sight.
Like every other sense, that of sight
the greatest exercise of their vision in
the open air under the light of the sun
have the best eyesight. Generally speak
ing, savagetribes possess the keenest eye
sight, acquired through hunting. Natives
of the Solomon islands are very quick at
perceiving distant objects, such as ships
at sea, and will pick out birds concealed
in dense foliage some 60 or 70 feet high.
Shepherds and sailors are blessed with
Eskimos will detect a white fox in the
snow a great distance away, while the
Arabs of the deserts of Arabia have such
extreme powers of vision that on the
vast plains of the desert they will pick
out objects invisible to the ordinary eye,
at ranges from one to ten miles distant.
Among civilized peoples the Norwegians
have better eyesight than most if not all
others, as they more generally fulfill the
necessary conditions. The reason why
defective eyes are so much on the in
crease in this country, and in Europe
lies in too much study of books in early
life and in badly lighted rooms.—Brook
