London, Jan. 16.-An account of the etherization of plants, a new process by which plants naturally flowering in the spring are made to produce blossoms dur ing the previous autumn, is given in the Times. The process is simple. The plants are stored in a small gal vanized tank, then ether is poured into a small cup fixed to the top of the tank whence, after the tank is securely fast ened, the ether is allowed to evaporate for a period of 48 hours. During this time the plants shed their leaves and may be described as being in a state of intoxication. After this period the plants are exposed to the air for an other period of 48 hours. This in turn is followed by a second period of etherization, after which the plants are taken to an ordinary forcing house and within three or four weeks begin to flower freely.

RY ASS.OCIATED PI1 B, Belleville, 111. Jan. 16.--The trial of Fred Vanderberg, William C. West, clerk, and John Strycklin, commissioner of streets of the city of BIrooklyn, Ill., charged with malfeasance in office and a conspiracy to defraud the city, which has been in the St. Clair county circuit court for the last four days, came to an end last night. 'when the jury returned a ver dict finding all three men guilty as charged. Vandecrburg was given two years in the Chester penitentiary and a fine of $roo; Strycklin received one year and was fined $0o, and the punishment of West was left with the court. The indictment charged that Strycklin had carried a number of straw men on his pay roll for several months, with the knowledge and will of Vanderberg and West. Orders would be drawn on the treasury for the pay of these and Stryck lin would then, according to previous agreement, divide up the money equally with his co-partners. It was also found upon investigation that the three officials had raised warrants and by other systematic schemes had de frauded the city of Brooklyn out of several thousands of dollars. IT IS DRY AND CRISP IN DEAR OLD LONDON IlOW Say Everybody Is Enjoying Some of the Finest Sort of Weather-And Even Balfour Is Some Better. London, Jan. 16,-The extreme cold weather is proving stimulative and in vigorating from the dryness of the air and while it is impracticable to heat either private residences or club houses there are few complaints and even invalids And the crisp, wholesome weather bracing. Mr. Balfour continues to improve and his intimate friends pronounce his treat ment as unduly cautious and prudent. Several men of letters who had taken refuge in the south of England from acute attacks of influenza, are back in London, exhilarated by the cold weather. German government feels grateful to the United States for the part they have taken in advancing the adjustment that is now clearly in prospect. The Venezuelan af fair will cause no further difficulty If all the persons concerned are of the Roosevelt type. "The Monroe doctrine Is an unwritten I.w with Americans and President Roose v, lt interprets it as he has on several oc casiins emphasised to the world, as a marnwure making for peace. As regards the Venezuelan affair, I trust confidently in the president's justice and that of his eminent advisers. "i'erhaps I am more optimistic about the situation,' he adlded, "as a result of my tersonal knowledge of American char icter. I lived there a long time and my American friends tell me that I am about as much of an American as they are. "Well, I was horn in England, my mother was English-Scotch: my wife cocen from Kentucky and my father was a ;rrmnan. so I suppose that with such rela ttic n I have certain claims on America." PRESIDENT PALMA ON CUBAN TREATY RECOMMENDS APPOINTMENT OF A COMMISSION TO FRAME UP TO-DATE TARIFF RATES. sY ASSOCIAIEU rueSS. Havana, Jan. s6.-Preaident Palma has sent a communication to both houses of c,,gress, recommending the appointment of two members of each house who, with four government officials, will constitute a commission to prepare a tariftt to take the place of th etariti received by the repiub ie from the American military govern Illent. The government favors a moderate in crease in the rates of duty, but there is no probability that anything approaching the rates levied by the United States will be reached. The cctnmmtttee on foreign relations is withholding its report on the reciprocity treaty until there appears to Ie no further amendments to the treaty in the United States senate. In the matter of coaling stations, the correspondent of the Associated Press has been informally informed that the Cuban government is willing to accord two of the stations proposed by Washington. The government has no disposition, however, to concede the Isle of Pines.

This circular is regarded as a direct threat to revolt, though officials express doubts of such a probability. It is known, howver, that several prominent generals art behind the movement.
