It is learned on what a number of
people call good authority that a de
oision has been reached by the su
preme court Judges in the board of
public works case, and the decision will
be handed down some time this week.
Judge Collins is said to be the member
of the bench to whom has been dele
gated the writing of the decision and
the opinion of the court is that the
law creating a commissioner of public
works is unconstitutional. The deci
sion will not in the least surprise mem
bers of the bar who have given the
case any attention. At the time the
politician? urged the mayor to take
up the matter and appoint John Cope
land as commissioner of public works,
a. number of prominent Republican at
torneys, not prominent because of their
legal abilities explained to the mayor
that the law was clearly unconstitu
tional. Other politicians, who cared
only for what they could get out of the
law in the way of appointments, pooh
poohed the opinions as to the uncon
stitutionally of the law, and in the
meantime they would have a chance at
the city treasury.
The mayor, who according to the
morning; organ, will be a candidate
for re-election, decide dit would be a
good thing either way the case might
be decided, ain-i acting on a strictly
partisan theory had the old board
ousted, not only from their position as
members of the board of public works,
but also from the court house. The
position which the mayor will be placed
in by the rumored decision of the su
preme court, will be a peculiar one, al
though the unconstitutionality of the
commissioner of public works law will
give him a chance to fill two vacancies
on the board next March, the terms of
two members of the old board expir
ing at that time.

About tfti 1,000.000.
The remarks which we recently made
in Modern Society concerning the pri
vate fortune, landed estates and specu
lation of the queen have caused no lit
tle flutter in court circles, where the ac
curacy of our information is recogniz
ed, says Modern Society. The truth is,
that such a lot of nonsense is now writ
ten on this subject before we took it up
that the public is now in a complete
fog. It was. for instance, said, some
years ago, that the queen owned some
600 odd houses in various parts of Eng
land, not royal residences, but rent
yielding property, and that about 6,000
houses had been built by crown les
sees on building leaseholds held by the
queen. This is sheer nonsense; that is,
the figures are absolutely incorrect.
Her majesty owns nothing- like so many
houses; and, in fact, she is following
the general craze and selling her bricks
and mortar fast; advised to do so by
her beloved Macduff.
The income of her majesty is about
£5*5,000 per annum from the state, and
her private income is very nearly £260,
--000 per annum, making a nice total.
Her official salary cannot be said to be
enormous, when one takes into consid
eration the fact that she is an empress
queen, rules over more people and a
greater extent of country than any hu
man being has ever ruled over before,
and that the twopenny-halfpenny, and
comparatively unimportant King Hum
bert of Italy is paid exactly the same
salary by his very impecunious sub

Faure -will hav^ been severely tapped
by the czar's visit this year, and lodgers
at the Elysee palace (notably M. Jules
Grevy) generally succeed in putting by
a very nice "magot." It is. indeed, a
well-known fact that Marshal Macma
hon, who was a poor man. managed to
save the small fortune which alone en
abled his eldest boy, the present duke,
to form a royal alliance. And yet no
more honest man ever lived than Mac
mahon, only he saved; and the enter
tainments given at the Elysee while he
was president were the reverse of
sumptuous, the tipple being the poorest

Our miserly and speculative friend,
Leopold, of the Beljums, receives, £126,
--000 per annum from his people, and his
private income is very nearly the ra:r.e
iigure— that is, it ought to be, though
his unfortunate mucker in Congo has
somewhat impoverished his majesty.
Many sovereigns get bigger pay than
does our queen — notably the czar, the
sultan, the emperor of Austria and the
tinman kaLs:r. The young Russian em
peror is popu'arly credited with having
a salary which represents about £250
per hour, or £8.200.000 per annum. But
this is pur° phantasy. Far rrore than

A BIG PILE.
The World's XewMpnpern Would
Make a Stack 500 Miles IHkli.
A statistician has learned that the
annual aggregate of the circulation of
the papers of the world is estimated to
to be 12,000,000,000 copies, says the Rich
mond State. To grasp the idea of this
magnitude we may state that it would
cover no fewer than 10,450 square miles
of surface; that It is printed on 781.250
tons of paper, and, further, that if the
number (12,000,000,000) represented, in
stead of copies, seconds, it would take
over 333 years for them to elapse.
In lieu of this arrangement we might
press and pile them vertically upward
to gradually reach our highest mount
ains. Topping- all these, and even the
highest Alps, the pile would reach the
magniflcent altitude of 490, or, in round
numbers, 500 miles. Calculating that
the average man spends five minutes
reading his paper in the day (this is a
very low estimate), we find that the
people of the world altogether annually
occupy time equivalent to 100,000 year's
reading the paper.
