The library building, which has for years serve! the puri^'.. of the people, is no longer adequate; \here wl'.l be a new BbraiT building, and a BBOdern courthouse will replace the old one. All these fchtaes are actually under way. For pome of them i"Dtles.ns have been flchting for years, and it co J happens that all Of them will be carried to com fpletlon in the neat two or three years. Correl Humphrey, secretary of the Otlca Chamber ■of Commerce, has compiled a table in which the in fclastrles of the city, the capital, the yearly sales. *he number of hands employed and tha yearly pay iroll are Fet forth.

The Utica Chamber of Commerce fosters lndus- Jtries. A larp«- number of the smaller concerns hay freccived substantial ssalstaaes through the Cham ber of Oassaseroe, and the list has bean extended through iht- c.'forts of the organization. In the first Bye years of the organization, the Chamber of Commerce was Influential in establishing nine new .Industries in Utica, which ar« all In a flourishing condition at the present time. These nine diversi fied industries started vith about 150 employee. These were increased to 600. who received on an average £ 50 a day. making a payroll of $270,000 a year. Another hundred thousand dollars should lie added for the salaries of the men in charge of thfr-fc concerns. A large amount of money was expended in the c-ttablishment of these plants, for the construction of building*, and for machinery •Lr.d supplies, all of which was distributed among Hie trades In the city. While the direct influence of the Chamber of Commerce may not have been necessary for the promotion and enlargement of many of the larger concerns, it cannot be denied that tho organiza tion has been of great benefit through the efforts of its individual members encouraging with brain ■work and x iUreP the accomplishment, of tho pur poses desired. The very fact of the existence of an organization representative of the best business jnen of the city Is of great value, r.nd. -while much of the result of Its work in the upbuilding of the cltj^e interests In at once in evidence, its influence vi'l be appreciated more and more in the future. The moTt notable enlargement!! of existing plants In the last two years Slave been the Utica Steam Cotton Company, the Moha-wk Valley Mlils. the Ehenandoah Cotton Company, the Onelta Knitting Mills, the Utica Cotton Company, the Standard Harrow Company and the Foster Manufacturing Company. These «>st.i.blis.htnents have added large- Jy to their facilities and tlvir working forces. The Ttiverside Manufacturing Company and th« Utica Pipe Foundry Company ha.ye also enlarged thetr plants, and tlie New-York Mills have made exten elve Improvements. Among the larger <nterprises established are the Eavage Arms Company, the Utica Heater Com pany, the Mohawk Valley Packing Company, the THlca Dyeing Company, the Central Maccaronl Factory, the Utica Excelsior Company, the Lathrop X f:«rturin|r Company, the Utica Knitting Corn pan>, the Koyal Textlla Company, the Avalon Knit "Wear Company, th« Seal Back Underwear Com pany, the adham Cycle Company, the Kmpire Shaft Manufacturing Company, the Utlca. Brass Work*, the Fisher Knit Goods Company and the 3t«n:ington Automobile and Motor Company. The passenger facilities committee and the rail roadf and transportation committee have been ac tive in their endeavors to Improve railroad facilities for the city, In addition t« improved train *»»rvic« t!he Chamber of Commerce has secured* a switch through Broad connecting: the New- York Cen tral and West Snore railroads. Through the efforts of the public gatherings and conventions committee the following conventions have been socurc-d for Utica: State Chamber of Commerce, State Butchers*. New-York Department, Sons of Veterans; State Teachers' Association, the Grand Lodra. Knights of Pythias; the Society of th 2 Army <-,f tho Potomac.

In the last year many of our mills have Jncreaseu their capacity, makinsr larpe additions to th.-ir r.iantp, and with the new Industries started there has brrn an increase of about twenty factories, employing a large number of men. Correl Humphrey, tho secretary, in the course ot his report for the jear, says: The industrial activity noticed In the reports for tho last two years has been continued. Utlca has become a great centre for the textile Industry, and as tho knitting and cotton mills necessarily employ to a large extent wonvn, the great need has been t.. foster the organization of Industries employing mostly men. We have received many applications and proposals from promoters of manufacturing enterprises, but after thorough examination and Investigation by the nv-mbers of our committees, very few have been found desirable. It would seem that the polution of the problem lies in the estab lishment of manufacturing enterprises by the in vestment of home capital. Many of the enterprises established since the incorporation of the Chamber of Commerce have proffered to the extent that it has become necessary to enlarge and Improve the plants. Among these industries is that of the Utlca Knit ting Company, which has enlarged and practically rebuilt tho mill formerly occupied by tho Utica. Steam Cotton Company, at Columbia and Schuyler sts.; the Capron Knitting Company has erected a new building, the Avalon Knitwear Company has purchased property at Mohawk and Broad sts. and will erect a new building Immediately, the New-York Radiator Company, a new corporation, WtO erect a new building in East Utica; Clark, Horrocks & Co. will soon begin the erection of a factory for the manufacture of flshins rods; the Fisher Textile Company, organized for the manu facture of knit goods, will begin operations In North Genesee-st., and an immense addition to the Crous=e tt Brandegee establishment will be com pleted the coming summer. In the last year the Remington Automobile and Motor Company, which was brought to I'tlca from Illon through "the efforts of thf- members of the Utica Chamber of Commerce, has outgrown its location and a. new building has been purchased at Broad and Ontario sts. ... M The m.mbers of the railroads- and transportation and passenger facilities committees have been busy with applications from railway*. The tawn of Fly Creek, in Otsego County, asked for aid in securing the right of way between 'oopersrown and Rieh fleld Springs for the extension of the ei.vtric rail way from Oneonta. to rstown and to Klchfield Springs A sum sufficient to meet the require ments of the promoters was secured and the ex tenfion will be completed between Cooperstown and Richneld Springs by July 1. At Rlchaeld Springs connections are made with the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad for Utica, It is aleo proposed to construct an electric railway from Rlchneld Springs to Herkimer or Mohawk to connect with the lines of the Utica and Mohawk Valley Railway. Representatives of the Unadllla Valley Railway have appeared before the members of the Chamber of Commerce in the Interest of a railway which th*y propose to construct from Brldfrewater through the Sauquolt Valley to Utlca, and this line, with the connection* already in progress, will plve tha city of Utica an outlet through to tide water at Kingston by way of Oneonta and the n»t«r and Delaware Railroad. It is desired that th«» Chamber of Comnvroe assist in procuring the right of way between liridgewater and Utica.

DIA GXOSIXG II YDROrnOBIA. RECENT EXPERIMENTS WITH SUSPECTED DOGS-BRAIN TISSUE EXAMINED. There are few maladies that puzzle physicians so much us hydrophobia in Its early st:igrs. There can be no doubt that th- r.- is such a disease, and that it is communicated to human beings by the bite of a mad dog. Tmwa la mm dUßcutty, how ever. in determining, In the case Of an attack upon a person, whether the dog Is really a \ietim of this disorder or not. v.-ry often Urn animal escapes capture. Thoae who witness its behavior ar.- apt to be excited and to exaggerate their descriptions. A dog will not Infrequently be irritable and snap pish when aomethtag is wrong with its Ulgetfcm or from other causes, but without being affected with true rabtea. When a doctor is called in. there fore, he Is usually unable to judge whether or not there Is any danger from the bit* For th!s reason it la in tho highest degree de sirable that ■ dog which gOea abOUl biting people should be captured promptly. If it has been shot without any preliminary inquiry t.y an expert the body should be saved for examination. If the ani mal is still alivo. it may be decided to kill it event ually, because the only evidence of real value can bo obtained only after death. Rabies, i i k , ■ lockjaw. Is a nervous malady. It at tacks the spine, brain and nervous system. Ah yet the bacteriologists have not been able to detect any microbe which is characteristic of the disease, and hence there la no use in looking tor one In Ui saliva, tilood or tissues. When a ease is so fir ad vanced that the canine victim dies from it a cer tain portion of the brain— t lit* medulla oblongata— is found to be congested, and very often some of the nerves are partially broken down.

ACTIVE AT ATLANTIC CITY, TO nOLD HORSE SHOW IX JULY-FIRE EVIDENCES PRACTICALLY GONE NEW YACHT CLUB HOUSE. Atlantic City, April 19 (Special).— Although It Is early la talk about what entertainments are to take place In this city In the summer season, the At lantic City Horse Show Association has besr-.n to make arrangements for th« annual exhibition. There was a meeting of the association held at the Hotel Windsor this week, and it was decided that the show be held In July. instead of September. The show this year wfll be better than in yean previous, and every effort will be made to bring it tip to .1 high standard. At the meeting the follow ing board of directors of the association was elect ed: G. Jason Waters, Joseph Thompron. Frederick Hemsley. J. mmwm Lippincott. Henry W. Lee<}3. P. 3. White, jr.. Edward 3.

There hav> been more devotees of golfing In tha city this week than in any previous week this spring, and they have taken advantage of every minutP of th*« fine weather. Early and late the links has been in use, and every player had worda of hit,-h ankl for the excellent condition In which the course and the grounds about the clubhouse were kept. By the last of next week all th" evidences of the fire that occurred In this city a couple of weeks ago will be removed, with the exception of the vacant lots alon? the board walk. All IBM debri3 will have been clf.arfd away by that time, and If the orders can be filled some of the material for the pros pective hotels that will occupy the sites of the former structures will be carted upon the grounds. As a result of the flre Mayor Stoy Is nearly buried with schemes that arrive in the mail daily from persons who have plans whi they are will ing to sell and give away for the prevention si any further conflagrations In this city. Some of them are schemes that will extinguish a flre a.i soon as the preparation touches it. and others are In the nature of building regulations or building materials that are guaranteed not to burn. All of them, or at least nearly all of them, are carefully consigned to the waste paper basket by the Mayor's secre tary, while some few that ar« believed to bear some trace of m-rit are kept and answered. A restraining order has been obtained by tha City Solicitor which will prevent Captain John , Young from replacing the burned portion of to , pier unless he will use steel pilings to replace those destroyed by the flames, and erects a steel building to take the place of Marine Hall, which also fell a prey to the fire. The City Solicitor has taken the srai.'i that the easement deeds atjasd by the beach front property owners, giving the feSßjel front to the city for a public park, form a contract with the property owner 3 that nothing save steel con struction can be erected on the ocean side nf the board walk, and he will restrain everything that Is attempted to be built out of anything else. The work of maklnsr the repairs to the damaged Hotel Windsor has already been begun, and a larsa force of men has been placed on the job. in order that it may be expedited aa greatly sa possible. The fire had hardly ceased burning when G. Jason Water 9. the proprietor of the hotel, had given hl3 orders for the rebuilding, and before the charred timbers had cooled sal the orders for the ISBSS for the new buildings ha 1 been given. The lumber was being delivered before all the debris had been cleared tm from around the hotel, and as fast as a place was cleared men were set to work on the new portion.
