Subscribed and sworn to before me this nineteenth day of August, A.D. 1889. JOHX T. C. CLARK, Notary Public. Beccnt pubheationa in scientific journals o the country bare called attention to the infe riority of much of the asphalt paving at the capital to similar work in European cities, the surface of the former being in places soft or broken or gullied, while the surface of the latter is smooth and hard. The principal les son which is drawn from the comparison is to the effect that the European practice of making immediate repairs at the flrst symptoms of break or gully ahould be adop* d in America. It appears that the stitch in t. e which saves nine can be taken nowhere else with better re sults than in mending an asphalt pavement. The suggestion ia a good one. After care has been taken that the best quality of pavement is laid in the first instance, the greater the official vigilance which detects a defect and the greater the promptness in repairing it, the better the result will be for the credit of the pavements and the comfort of citizens. Tbe inspection, however, which secure* good work in the original paving, and thus avoids the necessity of numerous extensive repairs, is of course of the first importance. When a load of bad asphalt was about to be dumped at a Washington wharf a few weeks ago Capt. Symonds made a vigorous protest which drew from the consignee the statement that the material was not to be used in any work for the government. If the vigilance of the authori ties is so strict at that stage of the proceedings, it inay be expected to be still stricter, if possi ble, at a later stage, when not merely the material to be used, but the manner of its ap plication is in question. The amount of as phalt paving done in the city each year is so great that there is ample field for the useful exercise of this sort of official vigilance. The most important piece of paving for this year is the resurfacing of Pennsylvania avenue. We have in the apace before the Arlington hotel, and in some other parts of the city, examples of what an excellent surface can be given to asphalt pavement properly made. We want another illustration on Pennsylvania avenue, from Seventeenth street to the Capitol. Good work aa well as quick work must be done. Nowhere else in the world will asphalt paving of the best quality show itself to better advantage or re flect greater credit upon the men who did, and the men who inspected the work, than on this particular section of the surface of the Capital of the republic. A poor exhibit will be equally conspicuous. Tbe alien contract labor law has really been invoked and proved operative in a case where no clergyman, or college professor, or teacher of a new art. or other useful and desirable ac quisition to our society was involved. It was in Texas, where a subcontractor on an impor tant public work has been condemned to pay one thousand dollars fine for each of sixty-four offences in importing his help. The force of the example, however, is somewhat broken by a postponement of execution for twelve months, to enable the culprit to ~seek relief in Wash ington." What form of relief he proposes to seek tbe preas dispatches do not state. He might appeal to the Supreme Court, or he migbt try to get an act of Congress passed for his private benefit. Either one, as things go now, would be pretty nearly as expensive as the simple payment of his fine, if time and worry may be counted in as a part of the out lay. The best thing for contractors to do, especially when handling jobs for a state or the general government, is to obey the law literally, and not trust merely to escaping the penalties of disobedience. It is a fortunate thing that the popular fright over the possibility of poisouing by the Brown Sequard elixir has come so soon; for, as long as tbe rage was unchecked, there is no telling what damage might have been done. That any educated physician ahould make use of an elixir long compounded, as appears to have been the case in some instances, is almost be yond comprehension, for the common layman knowa that dead animal matter, after it has passed a certain stage, is poison of the worst sort; and evidently the more delicate the tissue or secretion, the greater the peril would be of letting it remain exposed to the action of the air. A good many of tbe cases of blood poisoning resultant from this sudden mania for experimentation will probably never be heard of. because the patients are persons without social influence, the inmates of almshouses and cbarity hospitals, who either cannot guess tbe cause ->f their trouble, or whose only means of making their experience known would be through the very men most interested in keep ing suen stories from the public. ??i_ Ex-President Cleveland expressed much gratification the other day, when on a visit to one of the great shoe shops of Marlborough, Mass., at receiving as a parting gift a pair of shoes which had only been leather in the sheet when he entered the building. He will retain his gratillcation till he tries to wear the shoes, and then the manufacturer had better buy a bullet-proof waistcoat. The kind of footgear turned out in an hour belongs in the curioaity case, not on a human being's extremities. There are too many of that kind on sale in the cheap stores for the good of mankind, from the point of view either of corns or of pro* faulty. .i - The almost universal regret felt and ex pressed in Washington at the departure from the capital of Colonel John M. Wilson, who has rendered such excellent service as commis sioner of public buildings and grouuds, not only testifies to Col. Wilson's official ability and personal popularity, but serves to show that the mere fact that an ofiicial whose duties touch District interests belongs to the army is not sufficient, as sometimes suggested, to put him at variance with the people of 'i eDistrict. By this transfer West Point gains at the ex pense of Washington. General Boulanger has issued a manifesto addressed to the "Honest People." as distin guished from those who side with the govern ment against him. In view of the results of the recent elections for councillors general, he must consider the honest people of Prance as ia a small and inefficient minority. The Boston Hmtid considers that the Virgiafc democratic platform "rather squints" toward the Bandall type of democracy. Merely squints, does it? What would they call a severe ease of political cross eyee up in Boston? 8CILDIXQ rinu. MOatTAB ~ COX/>R8, IM" purtarf Kirtiaud. H.
