IVASIIIXGTOX XOT ADVISED. Washington, Aug. 28. The inference to be drawn from a reference to Minister Wu Ting-fang In a Victoria dispatch that his term at Washington has been extended for another three years cannot be explained by the officials of the Chinese Legation here.

Beaumont Is Unable to Supply the Demand. REPUBUC SPECIAL. Houston. Tex., Aug. 28. From all parts of the country, Texas Included, complaints are being made of the nondelivery of fuel oil from Beaumont. Many firms and enter prises have made costly changes in equip ment In order to use oil for fuel, and now find that they cannot get the petroleum with the regularity required to Its econom ical use. The Texans are the greatest sufferers, but the people of New Orleans and Mississippi points are the loudest In complaining. The oil men assert that the railroads are re sponsible, while the roads say that there Is a disposition on the part of oil men to dodge contracts, and that the supply is not sufficient to fill the demand. The oil yield has been unequal to the de mand, which grows constantly since gushers stooped. Work of Installing cnmninu- ma chinery was necessarily slow, and until pumps could be put in place many wells were not yielding at all. A shortage In cars has also caused trouble In meeting the demand. The pumps are going in rap idly and the yield now is increasing. To-day's report of shipments shows a to tal for the mentb. In spite of handicaps, of L0S7,SS.j barrels, a greater number of bar rels than for any previous full month ex cept June. There Is no sign of diminution of the supply of oil. Delnj-ed IVeddlnc Supper.

OBJECTS TO PICTUR OF mm FIGURES rolico Asked to Remove Sirin From Wall Adjoining -Mrs. Alex ander's Residence. SERGEANT MEYERS AS CRITiC. Painting Is Declared a Work of Art by the Officer, a Former Sign Painter. Font to In vestigate Complaint. The Police Department has been ca'led upon to act as censor in a oontroversj . which, as it hinges upon a cjupstion involv ing the c.moiis of art. may yet be taken Into the courts for final decision. Mrs. J. W. Alexander conducts a rcomirg house at No. 1121 AV.-.shington avenue. The premises directly west Z her at No. H20 are occupied by the Scott & Wolf Taint ing Company. The building u"cutie! by the painting company is Hush ith the building line, and the house ocup'ed by Mrs. Alexander and her 'oomTs 5ts back about twenty feet from the building line. When the painters moved into the building about a month ago they lost no time in ad vertising to the community, through the medium of their own handiwork, the fact of their presence and the nature of their business. The spacious dr.id wall of the building extending from Mrs. Alexander's front door to the gate offered unexceptional advant ages for decorative advertising purposes, and they immediately proceeded to embel lish It according to their ideas of decorative and advertising art. coxsi'icLOL'.s l'ncn cuoj-nx FOR I.OCATIXG Tisn SICJX. Vpon the center of the dead wall they displayed the firm name and business In letters large enough to -attract the atten tion of tedemrians a block away. As a finishing touch and additional attraction the artists painted two figures of heroic size, one at each side of the sign, form ing a framework for the whole. The fig ures were destitute of clothing. Mrs. Alexander entered a dignified protest when she sw the work in progress. She fys the painters promised that they would drape the figure?, in deference to her pro test, but when thev were completed there was nothing to shield their nudity from the gaze of the multitudes that passed on the sidewalks and in the street cars Mrs. Alexander numbers among her room ers manv young women, as well as men, and these werf wont, en warm eenings, to sit on the front steps or the lawn to enjoy the ccol bretzep. The presence of the I i e- SERGEANT HENRY MEYERS Who declares sign objected to by Mrs. Alexander as indecent Is a work of art. painted fiqures on the wall embarrassed these ounR ttomen, she sas. and. to add to their humiliation, passers-by. observing the picture, made coarse and Insulting re marks to the young ttomen In alluding to the ticn. The boarders complained so frequently of this that Mrs. Alexander asked the painters to obliterate the objectionable fig ures, or at least to modify some of the fea-ture-5 of the picture Mrs. Alexander says they told her flippantly that when cold weather came they would paint a wrap or ttto around them to keep them from catch ing cold. PROTntiTS TO IMCTL'KK OX ;itOL.M)S OF DKCU.tCV. In thls extremity Mr?. Alexander com plained to Chief of Police Kiely of the sign, declaring it was indecent. The Chief asked Captain Reynolds to Investigate the matter and make a leport. Captain Rey nolds assigned Sergeant Meyers to make a personal Inspection of the offending sign. Sergeant Henry Meyers was once a sign painter himself, and ttas. therefore, be lieved a competent critic. He viewed the sign from every angle of observation, and then asked the painters tthat the figures were suppled to represent. The painters told him that the figures were a reproduc tion of two of the figures In one of the mast celebrated works of a French artist of rcnottn. and they considered their ef fusion a work of art. Sergeant Meyers took the same view of the matter. He saw Mrs. Alexander and told her that there could be no real objec tion to the picture, since It was a reproduc tion of a work of art. and. therefore, and In reality, a work of art in itself. The Iilshet critics and the courts, he said, had held that there was nothing indecent in ex- nosing to view a work of art. even If It dealt with the female form divine and nude. With thH judgment and ultimatum Strgeant Meyers reported to Captain Rey nolds that there was no ground for tho complaint against the painters. Mrs. Alexander, however, is not satisfied with the opinion of Censor Meyers, who. sho bellcvt-s, may havo had his Judgment warped by the fact of his having been at one time in the sign-palntlng business, ir she does not obtain relief within a few days rhe threatens to take the matter Into the courts for a Judicial opinion as to what constitutes indecency In a picture publicly displayed. PROOf.CED WORK OF ART DY SEROKAXT MttYERS. "If the picture was smaller and on can vas I would be willing to hang it In my parlor." said Sergeant Meyers last night. "Why. it Is a regular work of art." He described the picture as being that of two figures In the nude with uplifted arms, their bodies hein:r craccfully poised, while immediately beneath them Is a body of lim pid water. "Of course." explained the Sjrgeant. "the picture Is painted on a brick wall, and is not as finished as one would expect to find on canvas, but the figures themselves are artistic in contour and conception, and not the kind that would shock the sensibilities of the most refined art critic" "RICHEsfrVHNE IN THE WORLD."
