STATE JOURNAL, THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 30. 1891.
REFOBMJSJ FACT.
Commissioner Itoosevelt Talks
on the Ciril Service.
Reform in the Service on a Bet
ter Footing Than Ever.
CREDIT WHERE DUE.
Senators LooVa and Cockrell
Deserve Pnise He Says.
T7XEHT3T aTOir, A tig. SO. Civil Service
Commissioner RoDsevelt, in an inter
view on civil service matters, said the
commission was now on a far "better
footing1 tban ever before for efficient
work. This was due to the fact that
the commission, under legislation
pushed by Senator Lodge, of Massa
chusetts, and Senator Cockrell of Mis
souri, hereafter would 'have its own
force of clerks iistead of being1 de
pendent on clerks detailed to it by
the several plover anient departments.
The civil service commissioner de
nounced the liynam bill for the rein
statement of the Democratic railroad
mail clerks disrr.issed prior to the
classification of the railway mail ser
vice, under the ci"il service system in
1883, as a thorougaly vicious partisan
measure, saying-: "If it should be
come a lav it would be a precedent
for the enactment of similar meas
ures whenever a change of adminis
tration took place. It is introduced
purely in the in ;e rest of the spoils
inonjer and is a thoroughly vicious
bill in every way.
"Then," Mr. Roosevelt went on, "I
wish to call the recent decision of the
attorney general, which permits so
licitation for political purposes by
letter in goremuent building's. If
his opion holds, the commission must
immediately request the passage of a
law to prohibit suoh solicitation. The
commission has always insisted that
solicitation for political purposes was
illegal whether dcna in person or by
letter in a government building-.
"It was owing- to this interpreta
tion that we were able to very nearly
break up the practice during- the last
presidential camjaig-n, and as the
aftermath of that campaign, we have
procured the conviction of two gov
ernment ofiicials, one a postmaster in
Ohio and the othur a deputy internal
revenue oSicer of Kentucky, but we
have never had a case tried in the
courts where the accusation was that
the solicitation wts by letter.
'"iiie-tenths of the g-ood done by
the law will vanish if solicitation by
letter is allowed, and although the
commission will of course do all it
can to protect employes if they are
molested in any way for refusing- to
contribute, it is imperative that we
fehould be given power to prosecute
any attempt at political assessment in
a government building- either by let
ter or otherwise. 'The statute is so
broad, inasmuch as it prohibits any
person from soliciting in any manner
whatsoever in a government build
ing, that we have taken it for grant
ed that it must mean by letter, and
that, we know, wi s the meaning of
the gentlemen, both in congress and
out, who saw the passage of the bill."
The commissioner expressed the
hope there would ba a great exten
sion of the classifi ed service and that
there would be a great reduction in
number of places excepted on one
theory or another, from the civil
service rules, including not only the
departments, but the postofnees and
custom houses throughout the coun
try, and in this connection he called
attention to several instances in
which old and efficient employes had
been gotten rid of by indirect
methods.
The commission, he thought, should
have a power to interfere in these
cases of removals and require that
reasons for dismissals be given in full
and in writing.
PANIC OX A STEA3IER.il

Lake Erie.
A MHE39TBERC, Ont., Aug. 30. The
new passenger st-jamer Northwest of
the Great Northsrn railroad lina
stranded at Bar Point light on Lakt
Erie about two miles from the mouth
of the Detroit river yesterday after
noon. Dense smoke from the forest
fires obscured the lightship main
tained by the gove rnment at that dan
gerous point. The steamer ran out
ten feet forward, and as she draws
but fourteen feet of water astern her
bow is practically lifted in the air by
the tremendous siock of her strand
ing. , Instantly panic reigned supreme.
People who were able to rise to their
feet ran hurriedly around the steamer
t-houting and begging the crew to
lower the life boat. It was with diffi
culty tnat several were restrained
from leaping over the side. The offi
cers in vain tried to quiet the crowd,
and it was only when the Steamer
was seen to remain above the surface
that the more ualm and collected
helped to restore order.

RACE RIOT IMMINENT.
Trouble la South Car-olios Over Price
Charg-ed for Cotton Picking,
Columbia., S. S., Aug. 30. Governor
Tillman received information yester
day afternoon that a race riot was
imminent at Harlem City, a small
town in Orangeburg county. He or
dered the Santee rifles of that county
to put themselves at the disposal of
Trial Justice O. B. Whetsel.
The negroes in that section
have formed a combination not to
pick cotton for less than to cents a
hundred for white farmers and 40
Cents for colored farmers. An old
negro who violated this agreement
and picked for a white man at 40 cents
per hundred was taken out of his
house by a mob of negroes and se
verely beaten. Several negroes were
arrested for the crime and this un
doubtedly incensed the negroes.
Owing to the poor telegraphic facili
ties there nothing further can be
learned. A company of militia could
quickly put down the trouble without
bloodshed.
WISHES FUlt ANNEXATION
Chief Clarence Wantj Mexico to Take
the Mosquito Shore.
Mexico City, Aug. 30. It is reported
here that Chief Clarence, of the Mos
quito reservation, who is now in
Kingston, Jamaica, will shortly pro
ceed to Mexico for protection for him
self and his allies in Nicaraugua.
The plans of the Indian chief are kept
very close, but it is thought he may
make a definite proposition to the
Mexican government to annex his
country and thus put an end to Cen
tral American troubles. The proposi
tion for Mexico to annex all these
warring republics has been often
broached in the past and has aroused
much opposition from England and
other nations.

tion of Abbe Bruneau, formerly vicar of
the Church of Entremmea, convicted of

for mercy and arrived here last night.
The people of Laval were bo indignant
at Maitre Dominique' action in appeal
ing directly to the president, that it was
feared that he would be attacked and
consequently he left the train at a ela
tion outside of Laval.
Abbe Bruneau waa awake when the
pu -lic prosecutor, the examining magis
trate and other officials entered hia cell
this morning in order to inform him that
hia last hour had arrived. Unaided the
condemned man donned his black
trousers and then put on his shirt, stock
ings and ehoes. When dressed, Abbe
Bruneau was led to the chapel of the
prison where the representatives of the
press were already seated.

abbe dipped his lingers, knelt and
crossed himself fervently. lie was then
led to the altar, where he prayed for a

prison chaplain, retired to a corner
where the latter heard the prisoner'a last
confession. This lasted ten minutes,
after which mass waa celebrated. Abbe
Bruneau following the prayers with
great devotion. He waa led away to a
breakfast apparently deeply penitent.
After breakfast the prisoner again
communed the prison chaplain, and
asked that the clergy might pardon him
for breaking hia vowa of chastity. He
then informed the attendants that he
was ready, and showed great caolness
until he arrived at the foot of the scaf
fold, when his fortitude seemed to desert
him. Upon the guillotine platform
Abbe Bruneau kissed the crucifix
held up before him by the chaplain,
murmured a shrt prayer, with his eyes
turned towards the sky, and then at a
signal from Diebler he was uveriurned
upon the bascule, thrust rapidly forward
and at 5:05 a. m. the knife fell and the
priest's head dropped into the basket,
Ihe death of the priest was the signal
for loud cries of "Bravo" from the as
sembled crowds.
Abba Bruneau was found guilty of the
murder of ALLe Fricot, cure at Eutrem
mes, by stunning him, throwing him into
a well, pitching blocks of wood upon the
old priest as he struggled for life and
finally pelting him with a long pole until
he was dead.

NEW ORDER OFTrOS UALL.
The Outgrowth of the Indianapolis Order
In Session at Cleveland.
Cleveland, Ohio, Aug-. 30. The con

Hall, of Baltimore, an outgrowth of
the defunct Indianapolis Iron Hall, is
in session in this city. The district
comprises the states of Ohio, Michi

order was formed shortly after the
original Iron Hall passed into the
hands of a receiver. About 10,000

out so unsatisfactorily.
The convention has elected E. E.
Deeming, of Kansas City, as a repre-
sentative or trie aistrict in the su
preme commandery, which will meet
in Philadelphia on September 4.

FACTS ABOUT SODA WATER.
Ko goda Is TTsed In Its Manufacture Ao
cording to Present Methods.
Many years ago a Frenchman con
ceived the idea of manufacturing a car
bonated water by mixing a solution of
tartaric acid with carbonate of soda.
The proportions used were 35 grains of
acid and 40 grains of the soda dissolved
In a wineglass of water. This was the
original eoda water.
The public knows in a general way
that marble dust is sometimes used in
making soda water, and the question is
sometimes asked, "Isn't marble dust
injurious to the system?" As a matter
of fact, there i3 no marble dusc, or, to use
the technical term, carbonate of lime,
in soda water. The part played by mar
ble dust in the process of manufacturing
soda water is simply to supply the car
bonic acid gas with which the water is
charged. The same gas generated in a
different manner gives froth to beer,
lightens bread and makes the bubbles in
buckwheat cakes. This gas can be ob
tained from carbonate of soda, carbon
ate of magnesia, carbonate of lime or
from any other carbonate by treating it
with an acid. Sulphuric acid is gener
ally used. The powdered carbonate of
lime or marble dust, as it is popularly
called, was until quite recently used al
most exclusively for this purpose be
cause it is very cheap.
To understand how the two chemicala
sulphuric acid and carbonate of lime
act when brought together the reader
may call to mind the mixing of a seid
litz powder. The tartaric acid in the
white paper, when in solution, unites
with the carbonate of soda in the blue
paper. Effervescence at once takes place,
carbonic acid gas being liberated and
tartrate of soda being formed. Although
nature furnishes an unlimited quantity
of carbonate.", almost any other acid,
strange to n:iy, will drive out the car
bonic acid und usurp its placo. This is
seen in the mixing of a seidlitz powder.
Now, this is exactly what takes place
in the manufacture of soda water, ex
cept that the gas, instead of being per
mitted to es-jape, is confineed to the gen
erator. The generator is simply an ap
paratus in which the acid and the car
bonate can ba mixed conveniently. From
the generator the gas is conveyed to one
of the portable steel foundations, the
appearance of which is familiar to the
public. Tho fountain is about three
quarters full of water. After a quantity
of gas has entered the fountain it is
well agitated. It is usual now to place
it on a cradle or rocker, and either by
hand or steam power to rock it for some
time, generally about half an hour, in
order to mix thoroughly the gas with
the water. When this is done, the foun
tain is again connected with the genera
tor, more acid is allowed to reach the
carbonate, more gas is formed, and the
same process is continued until the
pressure on the fountain shows 150
pounds to the square inch. The fonn- j
tain is then set aside, and another is
put on in its place, and the process goes on
until the supply of gas in the carbonate
has all been extracted. The refuse is
thrown away, and a fresh supply of car
bonate is placed in the generator. The
refuse is sulphate of lime. The sul
phuric acid has united with tho lime,
and the carbonio acid gas has been lib
erated.
As has been said, marble dnst has
been used in preference to any other
carbonate in the manufacture of soda
water because it is the cheapest. Quite
recently at least one firm in New York
substituted carbonate of magnesia. This
is a little more expensive. On the other
hand, the decarbonized magnesia, in
stead of being thrown away like the
sulphate of lime, can be utilized. It is
pumped or drawn np to a higher apart
ment, where it is strained and filtered
to exclude all impurities and tested. It
is then placed in large evaporating pans
and allowed to crystallize. Tho product
is sulphate of magnesia, better known
as epsom salts.
The eoda water business is exceeding
ly lucrative. The cost of manufacture
is from 1 to 3 cents per gallon, and tht
product is sold for 10 cents. Sirups cost
from 20 to 30 cents a gallon and are
sold from 45 to 75 cents. There ar
generally about G4 glasses to the gal
lon, and soda water is sold for 5 or 1C
cents a glass. Other artificial minora
waters are sold for about 35 cents pel
gallon. New York Sun.
Florida Mosquito Guards.
"You can talk about mosquitoes as
much as yon please," said C. P. Bur
dick, "but the largest, fiercest and most
numerous in tho United States can be
seen and felt in the northern portion of
Florida about Baldwin. It is the only
place I evtr saw men wear 'mosquito
guards, 'but there they are a necessity
to those who work in exposed places.. A
sort of trap or coop is made, fitting
around the neck and extending above the
head. Around this is fastened as fine a
mosquito bar as can be procured. -Of
course there is very little weight at
tached to it, and while at , first it both
ers the eyes yet it does not take a great,
while to get used to it. I wore one for
a week there, and if I should return I
certainly would not be without the pro
tection of a 'mosquito guard.' " Cin
