particularly to the effect which the seet the

the reception to the President and the ina

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

the rooms of the appointment division. On
the 2d of March the commimioner vacated his
quarters and the work of the offiee was practi

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

While it is true that the pension ofce build

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

Interior to decline the use of the bu ding for
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.

Walker, and spoke effectively of the measures
adoptedin Connecticut for the incorporation of
kindergartens into the public school system of
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.

Clara Barton, Mrs. John 0. Carlisle, Mrs. A.
W. Greely, Mrs. Teunis Hamlin, Mrs. Louisa

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
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
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

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.
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

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
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.
Italy's delegation, - ader Rear Admiral Meg
naghi, will conuiat of sma-ler vessl, including
the crnise Giovanni Bausan, Dogali and Etna,
and also, perhaps, the transport Erst-an. The
Dugali was built in l1i86. She has a displace
