SKINNED ALIVE.
Negro Died in Awful Agony At Hands of

Roanoke, Vat., Special.--Several
days ago a young white girl, living
at Dovon, in Ming county, WV. Va.,
was mysteriously .kidnapped and
all efforts to find her were vain
until Thursday night. A searching
party found her three miles from
the town, tied to a tree in the
woodls. She told the meon'that she
had been kidnapiied by a burly
negro, and carried to this point,
r where she had been since Tfues
C (lay.
After hearing the girl's pitiful
story, theu meon left her as they had
Sfound her, tied to a tree. They
bid in the bushes close by to await
developments. After some time
the negro returned, bringing with
him some food for the girl to eat.
When she told him that her friends
had seen her, he threatened to kill
her, and was in the act of doing so
when the men rusbed forward
from their hiding place and caught
the brute, lie made a desperate
fight for his life, but it was vain.
He was skinnued alive from head to
foot by his captors, and died int
awful agony. .

Tld public genertally wil wvatcb with
kcet interest the experiment In the I
municipAl ownersiip and operation of
traction .lines provided for by the P
Muller stroet ' railway act passed by n
the laSt Illinois legislature and now to a
be put in operation In Chicago..
t Briefly the Muller act empowers
any city in Illinois to own, acquire,
construct, maintain and operato street
railways, or to lease them for periods t
1 not longer than twenty years, upon a
popular vote accepting the act- and a
two-thirds vote authorizing the imnic- C
Ipal authorities tq buy or construct and
operate. a - street. railway, and also
two-thirds vote providing for bonds or
other cortificates of indebtedness to f
pay for such road, whether by pur
chase or construction.
As to fares and terms of leases, the c
aet leaves all to regulation by the city
council, except that leases or grants of
d franchises must not run more than
1 twenty years. The council may mako
n all rules and regulations, including 4
a fares, when the city operates the road I
Itself and may Incorporafo into leases 8
and grants of franchises such terms
g as It deems for the bot Interest of the
e munIelpality. The act provides also
,t that the street cars may be used to
carry parcels and mail as well as pas
-songers. Provision is made for the
payment of bonds and for the publica
g tion of accounts of municipal rail
e ways.
t Naturally the act was 9pposed by
the existing street railway tompanies
in Chicago, but It passed both branches
of the legislature by an overwhelming
voto and was favored by both the can
didates for mayor in the last Chicago
election. The Chicago corporations will
0* probably fight to retain their present
privileges. But litigation is discour- t
aged by the fact that the Muller bill
was carefuly drawn by prominent at
torneys employed by Chicago and that
the legality of its provisions was pro
0 nounced valid by the attorney general
of the state.
This is the beginning of perhaps the
most important experiment in the
municipal control of street railroads
yet undertaken in this country, and its
success or failure will unquestionably
have a marked effect upon the question
in other cities.
r Deerease In Railroad Building.
According to the figures given by the
Railway Age, the record of railroad
n building during the last half of the
fiscal year lately closed Is smaller than
was expected, the total mileage being
only 2,221 miles.
Doubtless this was largely due to thte
f high price of steel rails and other ma
terial used in construction. With such
g prosperity as the country has been en
n joying tbpr- *-as reason to expect a
great deal of railroad building and to
d see soe'n of the lines needed in this
d country completed, but owing to the
high price of steel railroad companies
evidently concluded to postpone build
Ing for another year.
The work done was mainly in the
way of connecting completed lines and
in the far wvest andi southwest. Rail
hroad building has practically ceased in
the east. There were only two and a
half miles of railroad built in New
.York. and only seven and a half miles
in al~l New -England. Now Jersey,
Maryland and Delaware did not lay a
mile of track. It is somewhat surpris
11nlg to find -that in the northwest, No
'braska, South Dakota aud Wyoming,
also inot a mile of new rails was laid.
Oklahoma and Texas lead in new
mileage. Louisiana added only seven
d ty miles, less than expected and less
than it should have done when the in
vducemxents held out by the state in the
way of exemption from taxation are
considered. It is expected that the
last half of the year will make a better
return.
It Is stated that the extra appropria
tion of $15,000 for tihe bureau of sta
tistics of the department of agriculture
at Washington is nowv available, and
tihe field force of crop inspectors wvill
be Increased at once. There has been
much. complaint irr some quarters re-'
0garding the crop zseports of the bureau,
nit being alleged that the reports were
largely the' resultzof the views of cor
f respondents who:.wereibiased by local
needs. -With the Increase in the ild

. Lesson of Oakford Park Disaster.
d. The collapse of the dam at* Oakfor
r. Park, Pa., resulting inl a disaster i
which more than a score of lives wer
ce lost, was reported to have been cause
;y by .a cloudburst. This is a conventer
a. hypothesis. It permits 4hose respoi
d sible for the calamity to take refug
behind "an act of God'! and gives su:
k9 'viviug friends and relatives such, coi
ht solation as may be derived from th
es conviction that. the visitation wa
,. sointhtug not to be averted by huma
le, agebey
n. The impression seems quite generall
at to prevail that clouds are constructe
to somewhat like water bage, which pe:
m. mit their contents to exude harmlessl
he through their porous envelopes, but I
tail these envelopes ro torn or so dan
he aged as to permit them to empty the
ar contents all at once nothing in th
lee way, of ar enq teering structure ca
me stand the disdolving and displacin
,as action of the escaped water. As
nd matter of faet, there is no such thin
>n- as a cloudburst. Normal conditior
Ege may and sometimes do produce a sud
ue den precipitation of great volume, an
ces the outpouring may be paroxysmal an
Ith suggest the descent of floods from t1
iu. upper air, but it is only rain, after al
10. and nothing like a cloudburst ever do<
ad or over can occur. The causes pr
us ducing exceptional precipitation a
ed various and not always recognized; bi
of they are liable to become operative '
of any moment in the mountain district
ir. and when they do the gullies ar
ter quickly congested, not being l4r4
ic- enough at the bottom'to carry awa
ng a great deal more tain than they ord
ias narily have to dispose of. Thus dam
die are swept away.
'oil The reason that Oakford Park dai
uo. gave way, as has been the case <
to many like disasters, can be easily an
let briefly explained. It wds either nc
re- built strong enough or it was not kel
he In repair. For this condition somebod
was responsible, and the matter is or
for the searching inquiry of a-grar
jury. There are,'no 4oubt, many sue
ille dams throughout the country, and th
it lesson of this catastrophe applies wii
av- particular force to those who at
re. charged with their maintenance. The
rn- ough examination of these structur<
should be made as a precautk
at against the recurrence of Such disast,
Ia as that in Pennsylvania. "Clu
ish bursts" aio likely to be as frequent
'ro- the future as- in the past, and t1
hat older the dams t1ir greater the ril

Antitreating Law In. Vermont,
d There is one phnso of the new Vor.

I Is a clause' whidh provides that "no

tnished to a person or any number of
persons, to drink on thojeensed prom
Ises, -in the way commonly known aq
'treating.*'
When the bill was before the legis
lature this provision was apparently
ignored, or at least formed no part of
n the rather voluminous discussion of
the measure, and was not brought.to
Y public notice until the authorities in
d license towns warned saloon men that
- they would forfeit their llcenses by
Y violating it. In consequence a serious
f blow has been struck at the American
- habit of treating, which is responsible
r for much of the drunkenness that
* curses the country. In Vermont gt
