The HRf- specifications have not. yet been made, bat the ST plan for the new building were submitted to vyr the Commissioners of Charities on Wednesday, i$t and provisionally approved br them. The ; new morgue will be built on pUea la the East S River, at the foot of Twenty-sixth street. The Sf . exact position Is not yet determined. It will be (ft raised to a considerable height abore the rlrer g$,' so as to admit of a free draught of air under- i;- neath. ,Kr The morgue will be a one-story structure, ygj and will have attached a ch. pel and a museum. i where pathological ipeclmens wUl be preserred. jfe The morgu proper will consist of a large clr fjf cular room, surrounded with alcoves contain GM tng shelves In which the bodies will be kept. 'Jt- The means by which the bodies will be nre-'im- tenred has not yxt been decided on. There are E several exports now at work on the problem. fe Freezing In some form will be adopted, pos "W. tlbly the ammonia process, as less cumbersome JK than layers or Ice. Too building t'self will Je be comoaratlvely lofty. It wilt be surmounted S- by a dome.so arranged as to admit of a free cur 'Jr.' rent of air posting through, ff Oen. O'Uelrne. who Is the Commissioner of s Charities most Interested In the subject, said nk' to a reporter the other day: ;i "I am very anxious that this city should bn HE - supplied with a proper morgue. I think that 3f we nay far too little attention to the housing jfi of the friendless dead. The nw morgue will ). be an perfect as modern science can males it, ar but It will nor. he a puMto sliowala:e. When & first ronslderlng the question. 1 had the Paris gf. Morgue in my mind, out. hen It was suggeat 3E d that the methods adopted In Paris are such M as to encourage morbid tastes among the peo & pie, I cbanired my mtud. We hope that the MK. New York Morgue will be, so far as use ml. SSS, ness Is concerned, vastlly superior to that In IK, Paris. I cannot tell when It Is Ukrlr to be W finished, but the work will be hurried on as - much as possible. The present Morgus Is very Imperfect In many wars." W There have been many complaints made of agf the physicians who bare to operate la the pres jff ent Morgue. Tne chief grievance Is that It la if not supplied wltn running water, what la used fls having to be brought In buckets from a disss-, tance. The other day Deputy Coroner O'Han-jw- Ion cut his finger when conducting a post-mor-w tern examination. The case was one which E rendered an accident of the kind extremely V dangerous, but Dr. O'ilanlon had to wait for ViV fully ten minutes before be could procure water in order to wash his blinds. f According to Dr. O'ilanlon. the present Morgue Is not only dangerous to those wLo -,, have to work In It. but a menace to the publlo jfc. at large. Ue says that owing U. the want of a ? supply cf running water and of a proper svs- Jfr tem of sewerage the place cannot be properly .v;. cleaned of unavoidable refuse, which Is liable '&.; to cause an outbreak of typhoid fever. After M his accident Dr. O'ilanlon complained to (Jen. m, O'Belrne. The latter directed that a system of ;: India rubber pipes be laid until something bet- f. ter cnuld be devised. The reason the present Hi Mc.ri.ue Is not properly supplied with running -,, water is ;hat when it was shifted from the old ja, i site, whlnb Is now being occunled br a pavilion ft, for the treatment of contrclous diseases. It was 'xt found lmposs'.ble to arrange the water pipes to K-" suit the new situation.

Attempts that are made In certain quarters to establish a connection betwocn tho present operations and fluctuations on the Block Ex change and developments of gonoral tntorest, such as tho progress of events In the Levant and tho international movements of money, are ridiculous; for it must bo obvious to the least experienced observer of tho stock market that dealings aro restricted to tha smallest kind of professional traders. They may devote n good dent of thought to current happenings of irapor tance. conjecturing as to their effect upon values; but the operations based upon their conclusions barely cause ripplos upon thesurfneo of tho mar ket. Those tt ho hold largo amounts of securities and tho publlo ouUlde of Wall street, two elo mtnts that might either demoralize tho market for securities or carry It rapidly to nhlgher levol, maintain an attitude of stolid indifference. They aro apparently hopeful, but not sanguine, con tent to hold what they have, and wait patiently for clearer skies and more farorablo circum stances than exist at present. The London market for securities was described to-day as showing a better tono than for some time past, nnd prices for American securities indicated that the description was accurate. The Improvement was said to be based upon a belief that the powers are likely to Intervene In tho Qrajco-Turkish conflict. Tho Improvement In London was not, however, reflected In the local markoU It did not Interfore with the suc cess of a fresh attack upon Jersey Central, nor deter realizing sales In Sugar Refining and In O., IJ. and Qulncy. Tho company last named modo 11 good trafllc return for March, but Its publica tion was promptly followed by n selling move ment, bocauso the figures reported did not fully meet the expectations of room traders. Chicago appeared to bo very bearish on Chicago Gas In tho early dealings, but later closed some of Its short contracts. In consequence Chicago Oas was one of the fow stocks that closed fraction ally higher than yesterday. The remainder of tho list, with tho exception of Jersey Central, which sustained a net loss of 14 V cent., made no ppccial progress In either direction. Cover ing of shorts In Western Union checked the do clino In that stock. The only engagement of gold to-day for ship ment was of $500,000 that will go forward early next week. Efforts to sell bills to advantage against contemplated exports of specie on Satur day prevent the rates for exchange from return ing to figures recently quoted. Among tho Inter esting statistics made public to-day was a compi lation of thoexports of manufactured goods dur ing tho first quarter of the prrsent calendar year. They were valued at S07.000.000. or nearly S5 V cent, of tho total exports. The ex ports of manufactured goods for March were nearly S!t).O0O,OOO, which Is $2,000,000 more than for any one month In the history of the country.
