Palais Royal Wisdom
WE LIVE AND LEARN.
Good in Co"d Air.
From Good Health.
"As the result of sedentary habits,
there is not sufficient oxygen taken
Into the lungs. The lungs do not ex
pand as they ought to, so enough air
1? not taken in. Then the overheated
air is diluted, anil one must breathe
Seven times to get as much oxygen
as in breathing six times out of doors,
and so, breathing only imperfectly
and slowly, because not active, the
amount of oxygen taken into the
body Is insufficient. One exercising
vigorously in the cold a!r out of doors
breathes more rapidly, obtains a
larger supply of oxygen, and the rub
bish of the body?the uric acid cinders
?is burned up, and the whole system
Is kept clear."

Foreign Secretary Defended Govern

TO *???
and Russia were brought out In the
the nrlvlleges given to Russian secret
agents on thls side of the frontier. The
socialists gave notice some time ago tha*
at the reopening of parliament they would
question the government on the subject
Herr Ernst Haase was put forward by
the narty today to make the attack. He
asserted that Russia maintained a chief
of spies in Berlin, named Tardlk. who re
ceived $9,000 yearly and enjoyedthe Utle
of his excellency. Her H^-e then mm
rr
SSTSSLVr^t to uVtM?
s^uSS &??
to Ttoe spies made domiciliary visits
?n the homes of Russian students or other
residents, occasionally Retting at the P?3***
officials and opening mail addressed to
Russians The deputy accused the spies of
u=in* the methods of housebreakers, seem
ingly without editing police vigilance, and
?Syth? forged a power of attorney to re
ceive the ml* of asocialist member of the
reichstag suspected of being In correspond
ence with Russians who were under the
disapproval of the Russian government.
Herr Haase then asked the ministers if it
was not true that Russians were conducted
across the Russian frontier at the request
of the Russian government without extras
dition proceedings or the bringing of spe
cific charges. ?The principle laid down by
the German government, the deputy added,
seemed to be that any Russian residing in
Germany who was obnoxious to his own
government became thereby Immediately
an undesirable resident, and instead of be
ing allowed to cross any frontier he pleased
he was put across the Russian frontier.
Baron von Richthofen, the secretary for
foreign afTairs, answering Herr Haase, de
clared the German government was aware
that the Russian embassy employed an
official to watch over Russian anarchists
in Germany, but the government was not
aware that German subjects were likewise
under observation. The government also
was not aware that Russian agents had
committed crimes or attempted to persuade
others to commit crimes. The chancellor,
continued the foreign secretary, did not in
tend to interfere, but he regarded It as ad
visable that foreign anarchists should be
observed by agents of their own country.
Baron von Richthofen further said that
the Russian government maintained a simi
lar bureau in Paris, and the Italian gov
ernment had one in London. The socialist
press, the secretary asseFted, had become
the organ of the Russian anarchists. The
government had Inquired Into the alleged
burglarising of the house of a German
physician, living in Germany, by Russian
agents, but had been uqable to discover
proofs. The secretary suspected that the
other allegations made rested on equally
flimsy evidence.
The secretary did not answer the com
plaint regarding the violation of the postal
laws, referring the questioner to the direc
tor of the post office, when the postal esti
mates are discussed.
Continuing, the secretary said Herr
Haase had reproached the government with
lending assistance to Russian agents. This
he admitted. The government had no rea
son to proteot the revolutionary subjects of
a neighboring, friendly state. The common
interests of civilization demanded watching
over anarchists. The government had no
other course than -to. deliver Russian an
archists to the Russian government. Other
states would not be thankful for Russian
anarchists. The prpcedure was not, prop
erly speaking, extradition, since the Rus
sian government did not formally demand
their extradition. The German government
simply put troublesome foreigners over
whichever frontier it regarded as most suit
a>?terr Bebel, who opened the debate, said
that a well-informed Russian had assured
him that what Germany regarded as an
archists did not exist in Russia at all. Herr
Bebel characterized the delivery of Rus
sians. whose only crime was discontent
with the reigning political conditions, to the
Russian police to be transported to Siberia
and Indefinitely imprisoned as being bar
barism.
Such a conservative leader as Count von
Limburg (a member of the reichstag) would
undoubtedly be deported to Siberia If he
undertook to advocate in Russia what he
advocated in the German parliament, ^he
German police, Herr Bebel asserted,
searched the house of a Russian living at
Charlottenburg, on suspicion based on
forged letters. , .. .
Herr Norman, conservative, declared that
his party thoroughly indorsed Baron von
Richthofen's answer, and said he hoped the
government would continue In Its present
path. The socialists greeted this statement
with derisive laughter. Herr Richter, radi
cal. said it might suit the conservatives to
see Russian conditions introduced into Ger
many. "and Baron von Richthofen's
speech." he continued, "shows that we are
In a fair way to this end. The spy system
permitted here must fill every German with
disgust."
Dr. Sattler, the national liberal leader,
expressed the wish that the government
had given explanation of the several cases
mentioned in the debate. The reichstag
then adjourned.
GOVERNOR HUNT'S MESSAGE
Recommendations to the Legislative
Assembly of Porto Rico.
Special Correspondence of The Evening Star.
SAN JUAN, P. R? January 13, 1904.
Governor Hunt's annual message was
read yesterday at the opeuing of the second
and last session of the second biennial legis
lative assembly of Porto Rico, and was
well received. It Is deemed here a strong
and able state paper.
The message opens with words of encour
agement and urges the people to have cour
age for the future; it also tells them that
recent events have attracted attention to
countries about here, and that Porto Rico
leads in demonstration of the fact that
American government will uplift a pa
triotic people.
The governor advises the people of the
island to go ahead and further commend
themselves to the .people of the United
States. He urges strict economy, with no
increase In taxation except in excise taxes
on liquors and tobacco. He earnestly recom
mends that the islajiid adopt an American
code of civil procedure arid advises ways
and means lor better municipal service.
In view of the faCOthai |jy l'ar the greater
number of deaths in Porto Rico are from
tropical aensmia, tbe governor asks for a
special appropriatfmi tor' the study and
eradication of the disease, thus hoping to
benefit the entire tropic il world.
Touching on the coming biennial elections,
he urges fairness and aavlses the creation
of election inspector* and * closer approach
to American systems. i
One of the most important recommenda
tions is that there shall he^a prompt settle
ment by a special tribunaf of all questions
now pending between the Catholic Church
In Porto Rico, and the government. This is
a delicate but vitally essential problem in
the Island.
The governor declares against road con
struction by contracts and calls for a re
peal of the law under which such work is
now being done. He recommends a tr.al ot
the contract system for ma'ntalning ro.ids.
He advises leases, rather than sales, ot
government lands, the income from such
leases to be devoted partly to education.
He recommends, among "other things, sur
veys and Torrens' system of land registra
tion. laws against carrying weapons,
strongly favors Industrial schools and asks
for an Increased appropriation for the ex
hibit of Porto Rico at the St. Louis expo
sition. He declares that this is no time for
lagging or for local partisanship which in
terferes with progress. The entire message
is couched In forcible, e-irnesi and scholar
ly language, and is intensely American in
spirit.
The Vine street school building at Kala
mazoo, Mich., burned yesterday afternoon
and the loss will be about $20,000. Five
hundred pupils, trained by the fire drill,
left the building inside of a minute without
accident to one of them.

ROCKVILLE AND VICINITY.
Board of School Commissioners Debates
Conditions at High School.
Special Correapouiience of The Evening Star.
ROCKVILLE. Md., January 19, 1SXM.
A special meeting of the board of public
school commissioners for this county was
held here today for the purpose of provid
ing means for the relief of the crowded
condition of the Rockville High School. It
was represented that the building is inad
equate to comfortably accommodate the
large number of pupils enrolled, and quite
a number of children have been re
fused admission because, of lack of room.
It is claimed that under the existing con
ditions the teachers are unable to do jus
tice to either the pupils or themselves be
cause of the vast amount of work required
to be crowded into the day. It was de
cided by the board to appoint a vice prin
cipal, and Prof. S. A. Lehman, principal of
the school at Galthersburg, was chosen for
the position. It was also decided to rent
additional quarters, apart from the high
school, for the primary grade. The changes
mentioned are expected to afford tempo
rary relief, but the opinion is general that
the erection of a new and up-to-date higli
school building for Rockville cannot be
much longer postponed.
The question of closing the colored
schools of the county was also considered.
The slate appropriation for the mainte
nance of these schools has recently betn
greatly reduced. The sentiment of the
board was in favor of closing the colored
schools in March, but definite action was
deferred until the next meeting, which will
be held February 4.
William Douglass and Bronson Smith,
yoftng colored men of this place, w<ere be
fore Justice of the Peace John B. Brewer
here today upon the charge of disorderly
conduct on the streets of Rockville. Each
was lined ?1 and costs. Smith going to jail
In default of payment.
Mr. Robert B. Peter, the recently elected
state's attorney for this county, took Iho
oath of office before Judge Henderson a
few days ago and entered upon the dis
charge of the duties of the office. He im
mediately resigned as auditor of the court,
a position he held for eleven years.
The new state's attorney is one of the
younger members of the Rockville bar,
and one of Its ablest. He was educated at
the Rockville Academy and Hampden-Sid
ney College, Va. For several years he
taught in an Indian school at Crow Creek
agency. South Dakota, and while there be
came proficient in the Sioux language. He
later became issue clerk at the Crow Creek
agency, which position he gave up to ac
cept an appointment as clerk in the otflcc
of the clerk of the circuit court at this
place. He attended night lectures at the
National University Law School, Washing
ton, graduating in 1S03 second In his class.
He was admitted to the bar the year pre
