A THOUSAND-FOOT ICICLE.
Its Fall Ctnae a Commotion in a Wiih-In-toa
Sumas City, Wash., May L One day
recently a loud noise and shaking of the
earth caused no little wonderment among
residents near the hills. Investigation
proved the cause to be an ice slide. A
small and lDQocent spring issues from the
side of one of the mountains, its waters
spreading and flowing over a steep in
cline of rocK. During the past winter
months ice formed against this wall of
stone, increasing in siza until one vast
icicle, fully twenty feet in thickness and
1,000 feet in length, projected into the

tion of occasional similar occurrences in
previous years, but on a grander scale.

cages or animals were overturned. A

Repartee In London's Streets.
It is always amusing to listen to the sul
phurous exchange of compliments between
cabby and a 'busman, who is often suffi
ciently clever at repartee to cause cabby's
attempts at ridicule to recoil on his own
head. Here is a case in point. One after
noon a westward going 'bus picked up a
lady and gentleman right out of the hands
of cabby in Ficcadilly.
In pulling up the 'bus very nearly came
to grief against a heavy van. Thi3 was the
Jehu's chance. "You're a nice sort of par
ty to 'ave charge of the 'eds of families,
you are!" he shouted at the 'bus driver.
"Why didn't ye bring yer mother out to
'elp ye 'old the 'osses on their feet?"
Like a lightning flash came the retort:
"Bring my mother out, indeed, while
there's such faces as yours knockin' about
the streets! Not me!l I don't want to 'ave
the old 'ooman frightened to death. She's
been too good a mother to me." London

A Transaction That Meets with No Fa

Ex-Assistant Secretary Upton.
Washington Cut. May L Bankers
and others herd were not slow yesterday
In expressing their opinion of the state
ment made by Secretary Foster that the
$1011,000,000 gold reserve could be used to
meet government obligations "on a pinch."
One banker said: To conservative finan
ciers, who regard a reserve fund created
by law to partially secure the payment of
a debt as a sacred matter, Mr. Foster's
declaration that he will use it 'on a pinch'
for another purpose has a harsh sound.
Never before have such loose
financial ideas emanated from a secretary
of the treasury."
Thinks It Incomprehensible.
Another said: "What Mr. Foster is
quoted as saying about trust funds and
the gold reserve is incomprehensible and
indicates that he is not familiar with the
laws governing these funds, or, if so, that
he holds-very loose and dangerous opin
ions in regard to them. 'Because no one
would bo able to get together enough
greenbacks to take all the gold out oi t!io
treasury, therefore they do not take any.'

Its Use Never Authorized.
J- K. Upton, formerly -assistant secre
tary of the treasury, after controverting
Mint Director Leech's statement that
there was a balance of $250,000,010 in the
treasury, and insisting that there was
not more than $54,000,000, said of the
reserve: "This amount was accumulated
by the sale of bonds under the resump
tion act to provide a reserve so that the
goverument might resume specie pay
ments on Jan. L 1S79. Congress has
never authorized its use for any other
purpose, but on the other hand, by ex
press enactment, has once declared that
no certificates should be issued against
the amount. Any secretary of the treas
ury who should use this amount for cur
rent disbursements would be guilty of a
high crime or misdemeanor, for which he
can be impeached."
