Tbe Prsesdest is streagly Urged Net to Agree to It. Considerable opposition has been developed to the extradition treaty recently concluded with Russia. and the pressure on the President and the Secretary of 8:ats Is so great that there is more than a probability that the proposed exchange of ra;&a.one which 1t was espected would take place at St. Petersburg within the next two weeks will he postponed in ordsr to allow the pre cut ademistration more time to consider the question before the compact Is an accomplished fact. A petition addressed to Secretary of State Greham s now being circulated in New York and other cities, the object of which is to pro tes agamnst the clause in the pending treaty be tween the United 8.ates and Enussia. which reads substantially that an attempt upon the head of either government, comprising an act of assmmination. kii.xrg or poisoning, shalt not he considered a political offense and hnee shall he extradi table. The signers of the petition maintain that the injasnee of this clause in the treaty is manifest as sections 241.242 and 248 of the Russian Penal tode make any person guilty cf the *-accomplished crime" of attempting the life of the czar, and there for eubjeot to capital punuahment. who may join any snciety whose aim is against the hi.. person or dignity of the czar. } airther, by stion 128 of the Rusasa ecde, any person who gives shelter to a father, mother. huisband or wife or any near relative of any me~mber of such a society shall be sub ject to the came punishment as the principal offender. The protest of the signers of the New York peti ion against the ratifica~icu of the pending treaty concluded with the udecaration that the consumma'ion of such a treaty would he con trary to the traditions of American freedom. Aamong those who have signed' the petition are channesy N. Diepw. Fellx Adler, Daniel Ap-. leton. Lioyd M.Garrison. Robert Collyer M E.Dodge, Thomas I. Gahroy, Richari Watson Gilder, Wilham R. Grace, Horace Porter, W. D. Howells and other well-known persons. Is is said that Felix Adler, Charles Stayer. Carl Sehurz and Pr.

Gen. Banm, the late commisioer of pn. slais, en the 14 isamat sat the fallowing lhttere geSeiry miths I think 4 proper. in the ntered of the pub lie servlee, that I should invite year attentios particularly to the effect which the seet the pension eIes building for the esremeniss of the reception to the President and the ina gural bell on the night of Maroh 4 had upon the badsnes al the burau. It is proper to state that after the hoenrable Secretary of the Interior granted permission to the inauguration committee to use the buld ing every feellity was glated to the cpmmittee and its employes and etreetors to fully pe pare the bene for the ceremonies. The active work of decorating the building began about the 15th of February and con tinned, with a constantly increasing fores, until the work was completed. Four divisions on the Arst door vacated their quarters on the 29th of February, and the work at removing the S fie eses from the court, and re moving the dese from the rooms of the mail division, the southern division the middle division and the eastern division, began on the morning of the lst of March. The decorators had already been given pos session of the commiseioner's front room and the rooms of the appointment division. On the 2d of March the commimioner vacated his quarters and the work of the offiee was practi cally suspended, but the entire force of the office was not dismissed until noon of March 3, and the committee had control of the bnilding until the morning of March 8, when the work of removing the decorations began and was continued without Interruption until the 11th, when the house was practically cleaned. From the time the decoration of the house began until the material was removed there. was a constant pressure of sightseers to enter the building. The effect of all this was to seriously interrapt the business of the office. The salary account of those immediately employed in the bureau is about 18.000 per day. I lave carefully esti mated the lost time as the result of this use of the building. and have decided that it was not loss than eight fuli days for the entire oficIal force. amounting to-say 164.000. The receipts of the committee from the sale of tickets of admission to the reception en the night of the 4th of March and to the various concerts which were given on Monday and Tuesday following amounted to something over 648.000. These receipts constituted a fund sufficiently large to cover the entire expense incurred by the committee for the inaugurataon ceremonies. While it is true that the pension ofce build ing is the only house in Washington city well adapted to the accommodation of an assemblage of 12.000 or 15.000 on an occasion of eeremony, it seems to me that each disturbance of the public business as the result of such use would hereafter cause the honorable Secretary of the Interior to decline the use of the bu ding for such purposes. It is proper to sy that the inauguration committee ard its emploves and contractors were exceedingly considerate in the perform snce of their work and produced a minimum amount of disturoance. and nothing occurred from first to last of a disagreeable character. I venture to bring this subject toyour atten tion now, so that the question of providing a building for great meetings and occasions of reremony at the national capital shall be taken prising people of this city.

An Organlsatien Formed as the mesmet etthe Westing Yestedar. As mentioned in yesterday's STA3, an inter eating address was delivered before the gathe tug at Miss Clara Barton's house yesterday by Mrs. Virginia T. Smith of Hartford on kinder garten methods. The meeting was called "in the interest of neglected children of the poor, with regard to kindergarten instruction for Mrs. Smith was introduced by Mrs. John G. Walker, and spoke effectively of the measures adoptedin Connecticut for the incorporation of kindergartens into the public school system of that state. Dr. William T. Harris, United States com missioner of education, described the intro duction of public kindergarsens into St. Louis, Mo., and argued that the kindergarten was more needed by the children of wealthy parents than by those of the slus, showing that a greater proportion of the former than of the latter became the enemies of society from lack of early moral education. Carroll D. Wright, United States commis sIoner of labor, was called to the chair. and ad dressed the meeting upon the superior benefits to the community resulting from the support of kindergartens at public expense as compared with the maintenance of free or charity kinder gartens by private munificence. A resolution was adopted to form a kinder garten association. A committee, under the chairmanship of Dr. Harris. prepared a plan of organization for such an association, where upon the name of Columbian Kindergarten Association was adopted and Commissioner Carroll D. Wright was elected first vice presi dent and Mr. B. Pickman Mann secretary. The office of president having been tendered to Mrs. Cleveland. who expressed her inability to accept it, and then to Mrs. George D. Hearst. who declined for the reason of her present engagements in kindergarten work in Califoruia. it was left temporarily unfilled. Miss Clara Barton, Mrs. John 0. Carlisle, Mrs. A. W. Greely, Mrs. Teunis Hamlin, Mrs. Louisa Mann. Mrs. Louise Pollock. Mrs. S. E. Stevens and Mrs. John G. Walker were named as hon orary rice presidents. A constitution was adopted in one clause de claring that "the object of this association is to secure tae adoption of kindergartens into the ubc school system of the District of Colum A membership roll was opened and was signed by persons present. ler. Dr. Rush R. Shi pen outlined ia a brief address the work that y before the associa tion. Mr. B. Pickman Mann, being called upon, stated what progfress had been made already in establishing tree kindergartens in the Dis trict at private expense. Vo:.es of thanks were tendered to Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Cieeland, Mrs. Stevens and Miss Barton. and the meeting was adjourned subject to the call of the vice president. EAINS OF A PIREHISTORIC WAL. A Curious Pile of Crumbling Massary on the Wild Plains of Texas. A Texas correspondent writes to one of the scientific dq. artments of the government of a strangely interesting prehistoric wall discov ered on the frontier of the lone star state. This marvelous ruin surpasses in interest all the other wonder;nl !emains hitherto found of the people who once inhabited the whole Mexican plateau and attained a high state of civiliza tion. It passes through Milano and has a total length of about twenty miles. It is built of solid masonry, ten to fifteen feet high and as many feet thick. Its height and thickness are thus almost as great as the famous Chinese wall on the north of China. Its direction is north east and iou:hwest. It is for the most part underground, and this is one of the curious things that pnzzie those wise men wao are supposed to know all about prehistoric remains. It is undoubtedly very old. one might suppose it to be the sure founda tion of a gigantic fortress which rose above the ground many feet. The towers and other mean' o. defense with which it might have been provided have had time to crumble away in the years that have passed. The long fortress may have been pulled down by the conquering in vaders. As the people died out from the land the debris of the old wall would in either case cover its foundation. PRonABLY BUILT nY aTucs. The Aztecs probably built this wall. They have left some inscriptions on it, but since their language is entirely lost no scholar can ever hope to decipher them. One covers a space eight feet square. The characters are kindred to indian inscriptions, but not so closely allied that their mystery can be penetrated. There was updoubtedly a populous village or city in the vicinity, for on a high hill near Mtilano the remains of a mighty temple of wor shin are found. This was supporsed by more than 200 lofty pillars. Some of them are still ..andmng. They were made of clay, which was well burned.. This gave them the appearance of stone. In this temple were placed many idols, broken prts of which are preserved: one, shaped like an owl, is preserved entire. Human sacrifices were made to these as well as sacri fices of birds, beasts and reptiles. Skulle and bones have been preserved In the clay. Some of these belonged to very large animals. Some are petrdied and it is thought that these early Aztecs may have understood the art of ptrifaction and thus preserved the bones of thir sacrinices. 3Many of the skulls show maras of violence, which was doam perhape when the human victimq were slain, Strange to say, none of these skulls are larger than the head of an infant and they have molar teeth. CUNlOUSLY xanxzn Inote. The Idols are all curiously marked. Around each pillar small stones are piled up in circles or squares, and inside each circle, underneath the pillar, there is a center or foundation stone, fashioned to represent the Godhead. Near the wall there also furnaces, in which the natives smelted iron. The locality and direetion of the wail are not essily accounted for. Perhaps it marks the boundary of certain tribal territory which was exposed to the attacks af the enemay. An enormoes amount of labor and material must have been required for Its construction, if built aboes the ground on the mss gigantie plan as the fouedation. Although there were toward a millio people then living in that vicinity the work must have extended ever a consider able pe~dof tins. Unless this was some apoint itles disfcult to understand how but w houandcould be intsrestes in its Gaws or a Asuaan An old tradItion says that the Astecs were -n of seven powerful tribes that emasrged from seven eaverns in a magic. called Astla, or place of the heron, They wandered away from their fellows after a great senfustem of touguss and settled in bhe regin they ase hnow to have Int= tedm This taiis h fabuious, hut it ure that te T ss the sountry before e eleventh or twelfth AUth tribeeled in p fe ore esmesMe time unt S trong e.

Ha has pl-ed the matter eatirly in the hands of Bear Admi ral Oberardi, and has give. him wide dso* tion in the arrangemeut of all the details. He had a long conference with Admiral Gherardi em the subject in New Yort this week, and arranged for another eonference at the Navy partment next week. The selection of A ril 27 an the date of the review in New York a ban made it neossmary to hasten the prepara tions for the event. It was at first thougat de sizable to have the pageant at a later date. so as to permit the participation of some of the vese sis now neering completion. particularly the New York, which was origtnally selected. as the flagship of th e American feet. But the act of Congress authoriming the review dxed th, month of April as the time for holding it. and besides many people may like to be present both at this great international display and at the opening of the world's fair. This can now be done under the arrangement made by Secre tary Herbert. The guests can see the greet show in New York harbor to their hearts' con tent and et. have plenty of time to catch the train for Chicago. It is now certain that the naval review will be in a very thorough bense international. and the failure to obtain as many American ships a" had been hoped will simply bring the foreign ships into greater prominence. It may be as samed that about forty war ships, including our own, will take part in the drills and maneuvers. while many naval, revenue and merchant craft may be onlookers, escorts and perhaps par ticipants in come portions of the ceremonies. The U. . S. Philadelphia. now at New York. will be used by Admiral Gherardi as the fdag ship of the American squadron. TE nRITISE YEsELs. Of the foreign Beets Great Britain leads of with the flagship Blake of her North American squadron, now at Bermuda. The Bike is a 9,000-ton armored cruiser, having four vertical triple expansion engines in separate compert ments, with an average speed of 1P.28 knots under natural draught. Her armament was designed to consist of two 9.2-inch 24-.on guns in bow and stern in armored towers: ten 6-inch rapid-rn ns, six on the spar deck and four on the ain deck, in casements: sixteen 3 pounders. seven Nordenfeldt machine guns and four 14-inch Whitenead torpedo tubes-. She has a curved steel protective deck, from three to six inches thick, and above it the top of the machinery has 8-inch ste-l protection. Thei casemates of the main deck guns have 6-inch steea on the outbloard sides and two inches in board; the ammunition tubes and tubes from the conning tower have 8 inches and the con ning tower itself 12 inches. Next in importance is the Australia of the Mediterranean squadron. She is a belted cruiser of 5.600 tons displacement. carrying an armor belt about ten inches thick for a dis tance of 190 feet ainidshins. 'Ihe protective, deck is from two to three inches thick and the conning tower thirteen inches. Tbe triple ex pansion engines were planned to develop 8.500 horse power and a maximum of esmhteen knots. Long after she was finished the de veloped in 1890 an average speed of sixteen and one-)xalf knots during a five hours' run in a seaway without resort to the extreme forced draught. The Magicienne of the North American squadron is of the "31" class, designed, like the Melpomene and the I Marathon. to be a nineteen anti three-quarcer knot, copper-bottomed. partially protected crui'er. The Tartar is one of the vessels of the well-known Archer class, which was the proto type of our Yorktown. They have a protective deck extending throughout their length, and carry a battery of six six-inch guns on sponsons, distributcd at each extremity and at the waist. The 'jartar on her trial develouied 2 83 horse power and a speed of 17.28 kno <. Finally. the Partridge is a composite gun ve-sel of 715 tons displace ment, anda peedof perhtps !3- knots. It is intimated that other vessels may Do added to these in season 16r the review. raRNCE's EPZEEENTATION. The French contingent is not so strong as was expected. It had been hoped that at least one or two fine modern battle ships would have been sent to take part in the affair. But of the three vesseis sent the only one of much cense quence is the protected crui-er Jean Eart, which was begun in 1837 and co- complete un ward of 7.000. 00 francs. hhe is 352 feet long. wish 43,' :ee& Unam. and a displacement of 4,16: tons, and her engines can develop nearly 8.000 horse jpuer. In a trial rather more than a year ago an aggregate o. 7.846 horse power gave her a speed of 18.65 knot#. with 116.2 revolutions. Her batter- is four 6.3-inch guns on sponsons and six 5.3-inch guns in broalside, with a secondary armament of foar 3-pounder rapid-tire guns. iK revoiving cannon and a half dozen torpedo tubes. The Arethuse is famiuar in our waters and is a wooden ship, although launched about a dozen years ago. bhe was in last autumn's. New York naval para.io. She is about 277 feet long and 43 feet beam. with a norma. draught of nearly 2= feet and a displacement of 3.400 tons. She is said to hare 4.200 horse power and a speed of 14 knots. Her battery consists of eighteen 5w-inch guns in broadside. with two guns mounted in the bow and eight Hotch kiss revolving cannon. Her gaus can be fired by electricity and are protected by shields. The Hussard comnletes tie French contIgent and, like the Arethuse, is out in she West In dies, GREAT mEPSsAN sErra. From present indicationis Russia will have the strongest delegation in power and perhaps numerically. The Russian armored cruiser, the General Admtral, which is to be one of her representatives, is not very formidable as ships go now, since she was launched twenty years ago. She is of 4.43w tons displacement, iron, wood sheathed under water and coppered. She has a radius of nearly 6.m0 miles at ton knots, and a maximumn of thirteen, and carries six Inches of armor at the water line and around the battery, with a curved j~rotective deck. More modern are the battle ships Emperor Nicholas and the armored cruiser Nachimoff and Pamiiat Azoff (memory of Asof) which will, it is thought, be likely to come. The Emperor Nicholas is of 8,04. tons displacement, with ten inches of armor on her belt and twelve inches on each of her two totrers. She carries two 12-inch and eight 6-inch guns, besides a good secondary battery. The Pamiat AxoN, of 6.600 tons, has a 6-inch belt and seventeen or eighteen knots of speed and carries two 8-inch and fourteen 6-inch guns. 'The Admiral Nachi maN is a modern cruiser of 7,780 tons, 8.000 horse power, sixteen knots sedand 10-inch belt armor. The Dimitri Dosoof 5.800) tope. 7,000 horse power, sixteen and a quarter knots speed and 7-inch armor, is expected, and also the corvette Rynda, of 2,965 tona, 8,800 horse power and fifteen knot. speed.
