VI FOR POLICEMEN IN BOXES. ii ' . Ai 1 M'CULLAGH WOULD HATE THEM yfi I BTATIONED EVERT JF1VE BLOCK (v Caald Bo Fanna When YTaatea-TeUfaoaM I C litllin mi Htndsnartero Cnnn f L mlM la Ibe Detrctlre Baroan-Cnpt. U MeTrnoon'a Rtlaelatrment Conallrfo'. Chief McCullajih put bcforo the Police Board yesterday a, plan for tho reotranliation of the detective force and for tho establishment of a J police squad system. A Blgtial ayitcm of Borao J I ' sort ha boen wanted In Now York for twontr j- I i rears. Successlro boards have tested man? ' wit plant and adopted none. As a result It Is onlr the annexed district that'has any kind ot n sis- A 1 nal serrlce, and that, the Chief sayi. Is both in ly t adequate ana antiquated. f 'In this city." says tho Chief, "there is and al ways has been tho universal complaint that no one knows where to find n policeman when Jl wanted. This U really truo, for. excepting on Jl Broadway in tho daytime, whore stationary posts are established, tho finding of n policeman its Terr uncertain, nor can ono bo sure of finding one eren if he Is familiar with tho patrol sys- torn, except he mode a study of that particular post, and even in spite ot Ithat a cltlien living In tho centre of that post would bo llnblo to take ate wrong direction, and might have to walk tho entire length of the post and half way bock bc I (ore finding the policeman, though tho pollce- i man was faithfully patrolling his post." I The Chief would establish sovoral boxes on s-iVs I ach post, eventually about 400 in the present il I city. They should be large boxes, sub-stations, I ') In fact, built of iron, with room in each for i'J'i aeoessary telephone connections and for a f policeman, who should bo always there. They i i - should be never more than five blooks opart, if , A and should be connected with the station house ' ', by wire. If a citizen or the policeman in the v 1 neighborhood wanted help, ho would know 5 jf A where to find it quickly, day or night. Ho ' ' would nerer be moro than two blocks and o half t- ( from a policeman. In times ot strikes or dls f I turbance the Chief in his odlco at Headquarters ', J , would be in instant communication with tho ' f man in evory box. On an urgent call the man v.- I In the box would go. notifying the station first. f The force need not be increased to provide L .5 the 400 men. The posts could be rearranged. ZZ-I, The Chief asked; that his plan bo tried by 5 f establishing twelve such sub-stations In tho llt Tenderloin precinct, where thcro aro subways. Ifl'll I " f1 experiment would cost $(1,000. 1U 11 "I would consider," ho wrote, "that the adop- VtltJ tlon of this system, with all its simplicity and JlMy lta'absolute thoroughness, would bo of greater timl value as a promoter of tho pollco service than At aa tho addition of 1.000 men to the force, and that 'ill to snpplT all precincts with such a system it I would not exceed one-third the cost of Install- " I'M 'nr ny of the signal systems In operation at Vs W: the present time." MB,' The Detective llureau. the Chief says. Is not 1 I 7"t np to the standard ho wishes to see, but ho ' thinks It qulto possible to attain It. Cant. & I'; McClusky has done much in threo months. The '' . - 1 1 conspicuous snag upon which all efforts to f . Ii bring the office up hnvo stranded Is the lack of '.v I concentration. tA I J This was Bymes's favorite argument. jl I I "I found tho detectlvo force,' says Chief BIc- ' Tullagh, "nothing more or less than thirty-eight fS l tub-divisions of n whole, working against lt- I self. To each precinct wero attached three or ,1 four detectives whoso hours wero so regulated 1)?l tiat often a station house would bo without WtyJ any, and when a caio occurred that required flW tho immediate services of a detective, tho otll- wrl. I cer in command was forced to send a uniformed (a-i I patrolman and perhaps one Inexperienced in '7, I lotectlvo work. Tho remedy for this Is through k I aroorg-onization of tho entire system. "In August-1 found 47 detective Sergeants f. 1 ,80 detectives and 125 precinct detectives In tho .- 1 1 various station houses, under the command of 'i , ) I Captains ot products, or n total of 258 on the f. II detective forco of this city. Under tho pro- 'J'fJ I I posed reorganization there will be required )lf I I lllty detectlvo Sergeants, not less than flfty de- 'II f tootlves at the Central Office, and also in addt- I tlon to these, from tlie Detective Bureau, and 1 1 under tho command of its Captain, three dotoc- fi HI Uvea to be assigned to detectlvo duty In oach it J J precinct, and their hours for duty so regulated ?' jl that! one in turn would be continuously at each f station in reserve duty to answer any calls, t I while the others would bo attending to such J . duties as would bo required of them in their precinct. This would be working on the same J plan as the stationary posts, having a detective J, V always on hand when wanted. There shall also f; be, 1" addition to those threo detectives, one j- I,. precinct detectlvo, under the direct command fi, I) ot the Captain ot the precinct, to perform such ts, I duties as the Captain may require from time to $M-tl'4 time. flj' 1,1 "These changes in assigning detectives to " It precincts establish thirty -eight sub-detective ''? i bureaus and meet the requirements of an effl- 5,5 1 dent detectlvo service by securing promptness Sell i and cooperation under one head, beside furnish- fi II lng ono detective to each precinct commander. ; W This can be accomplished with 218 detectives, 'l II which is ten less than wero in the department jl, I) on Aug. 24, when I was appointed to command V l'l this department." B -' v A The matter Is to receive consideration. ft V. 1 T hoard took up the question of reinstating Kf i Capt. Stephenson, who was tried on Lexow lV . charges and dismissed In 1891. He was aftor- ' II ward convicted in Oyer and Terminer, but the M.3 111 conviction was upset on appeal. Corporation Kv y Counsel Scoit advised the board to reinstate b.i'- , him at once, declaring that he could find no WkS i' argument on which the courts could be asked UK tl 1 nstain his dismissal. President Moss was mtf; I In favor of Immediate reinstatement. Com M?l I 5 mlssloner Andrews remarked that tho J9.000 .' back pay due to Capt. Stephenson would have mty' i to come from the pension fund. Commissioner nBVr.'U 1 Parker wanted the matter referred to a com MJ,'3 mlttee. K-av 'T " want to savo any of tho Lexow com- SIttee's work." he said, glancing at President , oss, "we had better try now." T W "It Isn't a question of saving the Lexow com- Wtf M i t ittee'a work," said Sir. Moss testily. "It has mlr I nothing to do with theso cases. After the com- U t I mlttee adjourned a special Grand Jury was t ! I appointed and made its own cases." i, I, ( Col. Hmlth opposed immediate reinstatement i I because Mr. Scott had advised it. He did not Si I I want to do a thing just because Mr. Scott said HAl he would have to. He wanted the matter rc uV V 1 ferred to the Commlttco on Itules and Disci WX 1 pllne and this was done. Mlfii 1 Commissioner Parkor got angry. A mes- MfUf-l.i tags had .been sent to the State Civil Scr- l( Tic Board In explanation of a desired chango in I the age limit as to the admission of police sur- fl peons. The threo Commissioners hod Bent it in I the absence of Mr. Parker. They brought it up W$ i for formal conflrmatlon by tho board. Mr. & ' Parker objected. Mjg I "It is perfect balderdash," he said, "vbtlng. . i to dp something that has already been done. I IB Fi I protest against tho farco ot three ot you getting Mi! I ' "to a cornor and transacting business and i- tbenlbringing it up here to be voted for." il f$T . Mr. Parker voted "no" alone. A moment mm later he voted "ayo," reluctantly on a rcsolu- l?- lion to pay the Chief his salary, which Mr. Parker had held up on the ground that ho was not legally Chief. As a matter of fact the Chief hod drawn his pay tho day before, but Mr. Parker did not know It. Mr. Moss pro duced tho department's "roll of honor." It is kept In a shabby old account book in which Is also recorded the appointment of Commission ers, Superintendents, and Inspectors. In threo pages aro contained tho names of the police men who have been killed In tho discharge ot their duty. In the rest thoso who bavo dis tinguished themselves by saving life or other wise since 1872. Koch has a lino to himself. "This Is not rlitht." said Mr. Moss. "It doesn t insplru either respect or ambition. Something better ought to be done." I Col. Smith sucgested that the roll be printed nd distributed to tho force. Commissioner Andrews added that a moro suitable record should bo kept at Headquarters. Both sug gestions wero adopted. Mr. Parker turned w , theleavosof tho book. ft il T1 8ce" DB 'M' "that the names of nil tho MqVX f.li Police Commissioners are hero. Shall thoy -" all L'l ..' - snapped his threo colleagues, sharply.

Harry Jaanasa af the tUnth Bays Well Kaawa TsaderUla ReMrt. Tralnor's Hotel, at Thirty-third street and Broadway, changed hands yesterday. Its pro prietor, James J. Trainor, told out to Harry Johnson, who formerly kept a place on the Bow ery. The stated price was $32,500. Ever since the Raines law went into effect the profits at Tralnor's have not been what they were in tht old days. Closing at 1 o'clock in the Tenderloin naturally resulted In a great falling off as com pared with the time when that hour was the shank of the evening and high revelry kept up until daybreak. Trainor became dissatisfled. A few days ago he was telling his troubles to a party ot friends. " I'd sell out for 8330,000," he said In disgust. "If you want to sell, I'll get you a purchaser," announced one of the pair, and Trainor told him to go ahead. The result was that Johnson was found, and agreed to buy. The papers were signed yestorday afternoon, and Johnson im mediately took possession. When it was too lato to back out Trainor offered Johnson $1,000 to tear up tho papers, not that be regretted the bargain in a business way, but he hated to go away from his old standi- In 1880 Trainor left the Bowery and opened n saloon nt tbe present site. In 1883 he got control of the little restaurant next door, and branched out as a hotel proprietor, fitting up tho threo upper floors ot tho building for men only. The restaurant grow In fame, and with the hotel niado Trainor rich. He now owns n saloon In Brooklyn, at Gates and Held avenues, and he will In the future devote his attention to this. Johnson, the new propristor, has been In the saloon business for twenty-five years. Ho used to run a saloon on the Bowery and another In Hanover square. For eight or ten years he has spent much ot his time in Europe. Last night ho was entertaining his friends at the bar of bis new place. "Yes," he said to Tnc Sun man as he gazed around the room admiringly, "I've been in this buslnoss all my life. I wrote a book about it that you'vo probably heard of." "And what was tho book!" asked the re porter. "'Harry Johnson's Barkeepers' Manual,'" replied the author proudly. bix Bconanma oTEitTAKr.it.

All of them wero going at a twenty-mlle-an-hour pace, and Whitley, shouting to them to stop, started down tho avenuo after them. Thoy had a clear road, and tho pace was kept up until Fiftieth street was reached. There the tandem with the man and woman on it was obliged to turn out to avoid a pair of horses leaving tho barn. Tbo tandem was going so fast that Its rldors could noOstop It, and it ran into tho car barn wall. Tho riders were thrown, but were not injured. Tho raco continued down the avenue, and at Forty-second street the men ridlng.blcylcs fell out, winded by tbelr efforts to keep up. Whit ley followed the tandem ridden by the men to Thirty-fourth street, where he overtook it as its riders tried to turn to the east. They wero arrested. They said they wero William Brown of 20 East Thirty-third street and Edward Le vin of 10 East Thirty-third street Both aro members of the Riverside Wheelmen, and Brown is a pacemaker for amateurs.

A Jersey Mother teeared Hla Discharge After He Had Pleaded Gntltr ta Basaasslemeat. A poorly but neatly dressed elderly woman with pinched features went up to Court Officer William Wise lntae General Sessions Court in Jersey City yesterday morning, and, handing him an envelope, asked him tj deliver It to Judge Hudspeth. The Judge, finding that it contained money, called the woman up and asked her what it was for. " For my son," she replied, the tears starting. " Who la your son t" "Frederick Semple," the woman answered. "Please, Judge, let him go. He's a good boy, and never didany thing wrong bofore. Judge Hudspeth made inquiries and learned that Semple had pleaded'guilty to embezzling 87 from a milkman by whom he waa employed in Hoboken. The money in the enrelooe ws to make restitution to tbe milkman. Judge Hud SDCth suspended sentence on payment of costs, which amounted to 821. Mrs. Semple had only $17, but Officer Wise passed the hat and soon raised the balance. Semple was brought over from the county Jail, and after tbe Court hod given him some good advice, his mother took him away, her face beaming with happiness. AIT XNDIOHAXT OOItXETlST. Hr.

On Sunday evening his wife and 0-year-old son Charley waltod for him at tho close ot the church services. There had been a baptism, and through the neglect of some one the cover ot tbe baptismal foot was not replaced. The lights In the church wereput out immediately after the congregation bad left. In the darkness Charley fell into the tank. His father, who heard his cries, found him strug gling In the water and badly frightened. Mr. Weber was very indignant. He said, however, that there were other reasons which moved him to send in bis resignation. DAUNT WASN'T CLUBBED. to Magistrate Denel Daeldas Danat Itleha ta 111 Btsry. After an examination in theYorkvilleCourt yes terday Magistrate Deuel decided that thcro was no truth in tho statement made by Joseph Daunt on Tuesday that he had been clubbed in a cell in the East Thirty-fifth street station tho night before. Capt, Martens and acting Doorman McIIugh were In court, and Mcllugh told the Magistrate that he visited Daunt In his cell every half hour, and the prisoner was so drunk that he fell from t ho bench on which bo was lying to the floor several times, and struck his head against the iron door. Daunt repeated his story. He said at first that ho could not Identify his assailant, and then accused tbo acting doorman. Capt. Martens said Mcllugh was a very quiet man, and not one to assault a drunken man. The Magistrate said be did not believe Daunt'a story and committed him to tbe workhouse. BROOKLYN TItOi.LET FJIAXCIIISES. These Grauted to Flyan JTat (.Ihelr ta Be Per fected Prlar to CanMlldallaa. The papors In two injunction suits to stop the granting of tbo franchises for several new trol ley routes to the East River and A tlantio Ocean Railway Company wero served yesterday on tbe Brooklyn city authorities, and tbe bearing will take place before Justlco Smith In the Su- Jiremo Court on .Monday. Tho temporary in unctions were granted by Justice Oaynor. It scontendoi) that the Aldermen were probiblted from grunting such franchises by n special pro vision of the new charter. It Is thought that the usual delay in court proceedings of this kind will nrcvunt any final action by the Alder moil, should Muyor Wursler voto the resolution passed Monday, as it is expected he will.

Isa't m the District Atteraer or QooaBsConntyl Ha Asks, and ghall He Thea tot Any One Tell Htm His Daly t-tot Clamor Race He BeeelvM a Charns Against the Bill Bjo. There Is llttlo doubt that Mrs. Augusta Kaok will bo permitted to plead guilty either to mur der in the second degree or to manslaughter In tho first degree. District Attorney Youngs told a Bun reporter yesterday that he conceived such a disposition ot her cose to bo in line with his duty. In that event It vt ill only remain for tho Court to accept his recommendation. While this is not compulsory, it Is the general practice so It may be safely asserted that Mrs. Nack will not dlo with her former lover, Martin Thorn, In tbo eloctrio choir. It is reasonably certain that there will bo more or less clamor against tho woman being allowed to escape the extreme penalty for the crime which she has confessed. District Attorney Youngs expects this. Mr. Howo has already rnlsod his rolce against what ho calls tho bargain wblch ended In his client's conviction, referring to tho woman's confession, although her attorney and the lawyers of the prosecution have all along denied that there was any agreement whereby she was to secure clemency in consideration of her testimony at tho first trial. If his client Is to go, Mr. Howe wants tho woman who Be trayed hlin to go, too. Mr. Youngs rests his contention on tho ground that ho cannot convict tho woman. "Let mo tell you," ho said, when it was suggest ed to him that a clamor would arlso If the wo man wero not put on trial, "William J. Youngs is the District Attorney of Queens county, and he Isn't going to let anybody tell hlra what his duty is. Ho is not going to consult any man except District Attorney Olcott. Mr. Wcller. and Mr. Davison, his associates In, this case. In my address to tbo Jury yesterday I stated that I believed tho woman to be as blood handed.aa Martin Thorn, that I wished she might bo on trial bcsldo him, and that It was no fault ot the Peoplo that sho was not, because a Bcparnto trial had been demanded. I also stated that before another tribunal she would appear, and that then 1 would do my full duty. "This duty I concclvo to bo tho acccptanco of tho highest pica that I can cet, I am positive that tho oman cannot bo convicted. Tho caso against her Is not strong enough, and tho law will not allow us to use against her tbo sworn confosslon sho made on Thorn's first trial. Neither is It probable that wo could uso Thorn as a witness against her. Ikcouso it Is uossiblo that his conviction mayho reversed In a nlghcr court and ho bo sent bacB to bo retried. "I cannoi Jill when her case will bo disposed of. Possibly It nll bo on Friday. I wish to consult with Justlco Smith, before whom sho favo her testimony, und. In addition, look Into ho statutes to dctermtno before v. hat Justice, whether Justlco Smith or Justice Maddox, she should bo arraigned." Thorn, who Is to be sentenced to-morrow morning, will bo taken to Sing Sing cither In the afternoon or on Saturday morning. Tho most recent "confession" of Thorn, as printed in tho yellow Journal, was another of the fakes nlth which this case ban abounded. The convicted man was aliened to havo told Capt. Mcthvcn as ho was led from tho court room that he bad lied whllo on tho stand and that Mrs. Nack had told the whole truth. This is absolutely false. Sheriff Doht did on Tues day night tell somebody that Thorn told Capt. Mcthvcn thnt Mrs. Nack told the trutb. Capt. Mothven Raid yestorday that Thorn, on bis way up from Jail to hoar tho verdict, said: "I hope it s either conviction or acquittal." On his return trip ho said: "I expected this." and when in tho Jail ho said: "I hopo I'll bo happier in tbe next world than I was in this," Sheriff Doht admitted that ho had not heard more than this, but explained that "somebody said" that Thorn said it. Thorn does not seem discouraged, although ho is quoted by bis guards as saying that lie doesn't care for an appeal. He ate heartily yesterday. Tho whole Jail haa been searched and everything taken from It with which the prisoner might kill himself. A guard Is kept constantly In his cell. Mrs. Nack has recovered her equanimity. She sits all day In her cell knitting. Sho is convinced that there is no death sentence In store for her, and so is ber lawyer, Manny Friend. Tbe full expense of both trials and of the collection of ail tho evidenco la said to have been a little less than $10,000. This is consid ered remnrgably small, and is naturally a matter of great congratulation among the Queons county officials. Another fart which has been commented upon Is the brevity of tho trial. It occupied but six days all told. Everybody concerned In tbo caso lias been flooded with all sorts of letters of adlcc and comment. Perhaps the rlimax was capped by ono received by District Attorney Youngs from a Boston man, tbe maker of n charm guaran teed to protect the wearer from tho "evil eye," tho writer having road that Mr. Youngs stood In fear of Thorn s "ovll eye." The letter ac companied ono of the charms, and the writer said: "Hong it over your neck on tbo right side: pass your right hand through tho string and let it remain hanged.' It should bo placed between your flannel and tbo shirt. As long as you carry tho charm you ore not only safe f rom evllj cyc.""but from any kind of danger. A great success "111 bo poured on you within a very short time. A word from you will bo 'highly appreciated." Mr. Youngs will let tho charm be hanged, ono way or another. Ho is willing to taKo chances on Thorn's "evil oye," he soyn, so long ns ho is sure that tho prisoner doesn't get his evil bands on him. Uoerner Brought from sing Slag for a xw Trtnl. William J. Koerncr, who shot and killed Roso Redgate, bis sweetheart, on Sept. 2.1. 181)6, was brought down from Sing Sing yesterday and arraigned in tho General Sessions. Tbe papers from the upper court showing that Kocrner's conviction had been reversed were presented to Recorder Ooff. and Koerncr was then committed to tbo Tombs to await anew trial. Kocrner was convicted last February of mur der In tho first degree and sentenced to death. Tho Court of Appeals reversed tho conviction on the ground that tho trial Judge had erred In excluding certain testimony offered by tbo do fenco and admitting testimony tbat should havo been excluded. Tbo School IToard tooklav Out for Its Own Exlsteuee. At the regular meeting of tho Board of Educa tion yesterday Commissioner Anderson offered a resolution that tho Commlttco on By-Laws and Legislation bo requested to report as to what action, If nny, was necessary to maintain tho board, and to nrovlde for Its meetings after the last ilny of January, 18HH, until it becomes the Board of Education ot Manhattan and tho Bronx, under the now charter. Commissioner Anderson said later thnt this merely meant that a temporary Chairman must be appointed dur ing the transition period In January, Tbero was no danger of tbe board disorganizing or ceasing to exist, To Br Hnonn no the Army nad Xavy Club.

They eat rice when well off, and a coarso flour of millet ordinarily. , It was n curious fact that during tho fainino wheat did not rlsolnprlco, but what wecall 'horse feed over hero doubled. It wan n.11 thn npoule could afford to huv. "Our method of distribution was to give out grain In rory small quantities, and In money perhaps tv. o or threo pice, worth halt a cent, n day. On this rt man could keep alive, and wo hoped to tldo over as many lives as possible. All our grain was given out through Ameri cans, chiefly missionaries. Tbat was the agree ment made when it was sent over. Tho Eng lish Government also did all It could, and must have spent over $30,000,000. No one who has been in India can soy that England's occupancy has not been of benefit to the country. "I want especially to emphasizo the great ?ratltudo the English showed toward America or her gift. Everywhere wo were met by tho highest appreciation from all, cspoclnlly the otllclal class, and the natives themselves showed doep feeling. They used to visit the ship while she lay at Calcutta and Madras, sometimes a thousand a day. Ono man travelled threo hundred miles to visit our ship. Of course, what we did was small compared to what tho English Government did, but it was thoroughly appreciated. Wo kept a careful record of all our work, and can show where every bushel and every cent went." BOARD Ell CUT HIB THROAT. Alex. P. T. Andrew or Uayonne. S, J., a Vis um of Aleobollo Hnnln.

His Rons Preeeat ta the tJalvorslly tha Man sion In lihaea Their Father Occupied, to Be I'sed as a. Hospital for Ibe Itadeato. and Pravlde an endowment Pan of BIOO.OOO. Ithaca, Dec. I.-At a mooting ot the Execu ttvo Commlttco of Cornell Unlvorstly, of which W. II. Sago is Chairman, n letter from Dean nnd William IL Sago was read, which toys: "Wo doslro to present to Cornoll University os a memorial to our Into fathor, his former resi dence on East Stato street, in this city, with part of tho grounds, tho snmo to bo forovor kept nnd maintained by tho univorslty, under such rules nnd regulations as rony bo adopted by its Board ot Trustees, as a hospital for tho stu dents In Cornell University, and to bo known ns tho Cornell Infirmary. IOs our intention to mako such additions and alterations to tho housa as shall bo noco isary to fit It for its f uturo purposes; to furnish nnd equip It in a snltoblo manner, and to provldo It with an endowment fund of $100,000. tho lncomo from which shall forever bo used solely for tho maintenance nnd needs of tho Infirmary, If this gift is accepted on the abovo conditions, we will pass tltlo to tho real cstato at once and pay over tbo endowment on or before tho beginning ot tho university year 'OS, nnd ot our option earlier, it tho Infirmary shall bo ready tor uso before that day." President Schurman afterward gave out the following lntcrvlow to tho press: "We havo long been In need of a hospital for sick Btudcnts, and efforts to secure one have been made In tho past, though unavailing. At present our students go to tho.Ithoca hospital, which Is small and greatly overcrowded by city patients. Hereafter tho young men and wo men nttondlng Cornell University will havo a hospital for their own exclusivo use, owned nnd controlled by tho university. Tho building has ono of tho best sites In tho city, and whllo derated abovo tbo city and surrounding street, it is yet costly nrcessllilo by tbo electric road ond n"t distant from tho main thoroughfares. Tho houso is of stono nnd was solidly built. It is understood thnt, with the grounds, Mr, Sago's homo orlginnlly cost over $S0.O00, and since his sons propose to mako alterations and additions to it and furnish ond equip It com pletely, it will, when turned over to tho uni versity, no doubt represent a cost not far from $100,000, which, with the endowment fund, makes the total gift nliout sp'200,000." In rcgnrd to tho endowment of $100,000 for tho matntonanco of the Infirmary, President Schurman pointed nut that Mr. Sago's sons had ndoped tho prnctlco lnvnrlably followed by their father. When he presented Sage Collcgo to tho University ho also handed over nn endowment of $100,000 to take core of It. And when nt a cost of nearly $300,000 ho erected tho library building, ho also uuvo an endow ment fund of $300,000 for tho purchase of books. Just as ho also provided $270,000 for the maintenance of tho Sago School of Phi losophy. Tho President also said: "It waa a beautiful Idea that tho homo which Mr. Sago built for himself at Ithaca that ho might bo near tho uni versity, nnd which bo had occupied whllo ho madctho greater portion of his benefactions to tbo university, should now. Instead of being sold nnd occupied by strangers, bo turned over to tho institution which Mr. Sago so much loved, for tho benefit of sick students. His sons say that tho gift is a nlemorial to tbelr fnthcr. Surely no moro beautiful or approprinto memo rial could have been conceited." The plan otorganlratlon, President Schurman said, had been under consideration for souio weeks past, but of course noolllcial action had yet been taken. It may now bo said, however, that tho hospital will have n matron, with an odoquoto staff of helpers, and probably nnlclit nnd dny nurso as permanent employees. Tho endowment will bo used to pay for tholr ser vices, nnd to defray tlio cost of heat, light, re pairs, nnd other operating expenses. Stu dents will pay for the actual coat of their board whllo in tho Infirmary, nnd it Is expected that if they occupy tho general wnrds. $1 a day mny cover nil cxiciise. For special accommo dations there would bo n hlfhcr tariff. Of course, students will engage and pay for their own physicians and also special nurses In sot ero cases of Illness w hero special nurses may bo necessary. It Is believed, bowovcr, thnt with the inunlilccnt endowment supplied by the Messrs. Sage, students who aro ailing can lite in the stately and beautiful home of tbo late Chairman of tho board and have satisfac tory provision made for all their needs at rates not In excess of thoso which aro no w charged by tho public hospital of Ithaca.

When tbe engine was started tho car travelled slowly ot first, on an upgrade, but as a love) pleco of track was reached better time was made. The machinery worked smooth ly, nnd tho wings mado 400 revolutions per minute, which gave tho car a spoed of between llvo and six miles an hour. Ono section ot the road between Mount Holly nr.d Lumberton was traversed several times, tho result being the same, or substantially so. each tlmo. Tho amount of energy dovelopod has not yet been figured out. It was stated that another trial will be mado ovor tbe same road by Prof. Lnngley In a day or two, on which occasion tho slzo of the wings may bo changed and tho pitch altered.

Tho action of tho Dominion Government In deciding to reduco tho postage rate on letters from Canada to nny part of tho British Empire from 10 to 3 cents an ounce will, it is estimated, entail an annual loss to the country of about $50,000.
