His ''income Is estimated to foot up $840,000 a year. The city engineer of New Orleans an nounces that an immediate expenditure of $40,000 Is necessary and requisite to place In safe and proper condition the courthouse and parish prison of that city. "It Is mere commonplace to say," remarks the Times-Democrat, "that the construction of these buildings, from the moment the work began, furnished one of the most blazing illustrations of political jobbery ever known even in a. , city that has often been the victim of Jobbers In the public rights." M. Berthelot, a French savant, has discovered platinum in Egypt. Exam ining a metal box, once the property of an Egyptian queen in the seventh cen tury B. C, he found a plate supposed to be silver. Closer examination show ed that the plate is made of an e.Uoy o platinum and gold. The box itself Is otherwise interesting, its sides being covered with inscriptions and designs in gold and silver. It hails from The bes. The platinum probably came from the alluvial deposits in the valley of the Upper Nile. Concerning the abuse of handshaking, it is recalled that when Mr. Gladstone 'used to visit Midlothian he avoided the handshaking ordeal by having some body else endure it. Crouching behind the great man and thrusting his arm into Mr. Gladstone's Inverness cape, a muscular policeman gave each comer in turn a grip that had no lack of .cordial ity. VThe auld man's uncommon Vecg jorotft athis time o' life," observed one liinaiiiiiwtlnsr Scot as he stroked his fingers, "He is that," concurred anoth er bf the policeman's victims, "but did ye notice his nails?" ' vsns Fon in k skw oit. : Just now there Is so much oft gushing out of Texas that nobody seems to know what to do with it except to make it the basis for stock that will give fabulous wealth if it acts ac cording to the advertisements. But there Is a constant effort to find new uses for oil, and in time consumption may be somewhere in sight of supply. Progress Is being made in the -work of utilizing and shipping the product of the wells which are held under control against waste. The oil Is being tested as fuel for locomotives, the smelting of iron ore and for all purposes where coal is now used. The latest practical test which has proved successful Is as fuel for cotton gin boilers. The sugar plant ers of Louisiana look forward to it as the coming fuel for boiling their cane juice and getting rid of the expense of first cost transportation and handling coal their chief dependence for fuel. Already it has found extensive use in southern towns for sprinkling unpaved dusty streets. ' , . Perhaps by and by oil will have some effect on the price of coal. And perhaps It wont. The "black diamonds" seem to hold their price quite as) well as the white and the yellow diamonds do. Rear-Admiral Schley's retirement . from the navy active list means quite a financial difference to him, although he Is better paid than are Read Admir ' als Ramsay and Benham, who were re tired before the present navy pay law went Into effect in 1899. Schley re ceives three-fourths of the sea pay of a rear-admiral, ranking with a major general In the army, which Is $7,600 per year. When Admirals Ramsay and Benham were retired their sea pay was $6,000 yearly, so they receive but $4,500 when off duty, against Schley's $5,625. A rear admiral receives, besides his yearly pay, monthly allowances for quarters and fuel. ! United States Consul Miller of New cbang writes: I would emphasize the value of a careful study of Chinese ideas and prejudices in matters of advertis ing; -for Instance, in condensed milk. The Chinese have the Idea that milk revives the youthful powers and that It has Bpeelal virtue as winter food for old people.

SEW Tilti HT OS THli 1001'. The "evidence" against Admiral Schley is in, and the witnesses called by him have begun to testify. Captain Cook, who was summoned by both the Navy department and Admiral Schley, and who was commander of the Brook lyn during the Spanish war, testified yesterday, and hla evidence was decid edly Illuminating. Especially interest ing was what he said about the famous "loop." He gave the order for this maneuver, and he considered it emi nently successful. He said he had di rected the helmsman of the Brooklyn to keep Btralght for' the Spanish fleet. It seemed to him that they wanted to pass between the Texas and the Brook lyn. All American ships were heading for the harbor entrance. The Brooklyn was well to the westward and headed to the northeast. He ported the helm perhaps half way over, when he saw that the Spaniards were coming straight for the interval described. He saw the enemy evidently put helms hard aport, and they were turning to the westward. "We were then turning very rapidly to the starboard with port helm, and we had turned, I think, almost to the east," continued Captain Cook. "The Texas was well on our starboard side. I then gave the order 'Hard aport,' and ran to see our relative positions.-, Quicker than I could tell it the commodore called to me 'Hard aport, or Is your helm aport?' I answered 'The helm is hard aport, turning as rapidly as possible.' As 1 watched the Texas the bow of the Brooklyn seemed first to point to her port bow. I never saw the starboard bow of the Texas, and, changing her bearing very rapidly, the bow of the Brooklyn passed along the port side of the Texas until there was a clear open ing between us and the stern of the Texas. We made a complete turn, a very quick turn, with helrri hard aport, until we came around and paralleled the fleet on the other side." This seems to dispose of the absurd talk that Admiral Schley showed cow ardlce In, making the loop. Now If It can be proved that the gallant Admiral didn't use quite as big a "D" as ha has been credited with he may be allowed to enjoy his well-earned honors in peace. world. Take, for example, he said, Lieblg's discovery of the method of producing superphosphate of lime, Thirty years ago the production of this material in Germany was equiva lent to about a thousand tons, but now it approximated annually to more than three-quarters of a, million tons. The invention of aniline dyes, coming from coal tar, had revolutionized In dustry. Thirty years ago, In France alone, 25,000 tons of madder were grown for dyeing purposes, but now practically none of that vegetable pig ment was produced, and manufac tured substitutes for Indigo were grad ually driving that dye out of' the mar ket. German chemists have reduced the cost of producing that widely used article, vaseline, to about a sixtieth of its former price, and liquefied carbonic acid, which only a few years ago cost to manufacture about twenty-five cents a pound, can now be profitably sold at two cents a pound. These improve ments have been brought about by the close attention which the Germans have paid to scientific education. The German dye works alone employ about twenty thousand men, acting under the direction of over five hundred aca demically trained chemists. This is a department in industry for which long preparation has to be made, but when Industries such as these have been built up In a country they not only pay large returns to those interested in them, but also afford the highest re muneration to the large number of in telligent men to whom they give employment. It will not be long before all civilized countries will be following Germany's lead In technical training, and the world will be a great gainer from the work that will be done. i Rice culture Is regarded as no longer i an experiment in Southwest Louisiana and Southeast Texas. Although all records for drought and heat in those eeotions have been broken this season, more than an average crop of rice has been saved by the irrigation system. The average yield per acre has been i increased, the average quality has been greatly improved, and new varieties have been developed. Many yields are phenomenal, while a product of ten to twenty barrels per acre is common. Domestic Japan, the outgrowth of sow ing imported Japanese rice In local soli, developed an improved seed, tak ing the first place In the American market. Lands two years ago were Belling elowly at $5 to $15. To-day such land Is selling much faster at $20 to $50 per acre, and Immigration to the rlfce belt is cuite active. The growing of rice is regarded as the safest and surest cereal production, as it is also the most profitable, rice having the largest use and market of all the grain. CAN Ai'tOKJl lO L.OSK IT. Kansas is Bomewhat less picturesque than she used to be, but she is much more prosperous. She Is too prosperous and too busy to be as foolish as she has been.v The change In things there is Indicated by the fact that there will be no Populist ticket In the field this year. By a law passed last winter no name can appear on an official ballot more than once,, thus making fusion on the old basis impossible. For several years two complete tickets, one headed "Dem ocratic" and the other "People's Par ty," have appeared on the ballots, each having exactly the same names as the other, the object being to deceive the voters. This being ruled out, the two parties have been endeavoring to agree on a basis by which both could unite In working for the same ticket. The Populists proposed to go into a new party, preferably the "Union" or "Al lied" party, but the Democrats refused to give up their organization. They seem to have won, for in many coun ties of the State the county ticket will be called "Democratic" and the Popu lists have failed to make any nomina tions. The result will be that the lat ter cannot get on the ticket next year except by petition, and will probably go Into the Democratic camp without any reservations except a division of the nominations. If Populism In Kansas continues to decline until It ceases to be noticeable It will be a good thing for the State. Kansas can well afford to do without the advertising Populism has given her. A I'OWKMFVt, istri.vnsci-. What technical training can do was Impressively set forth by Lord Ave- bury the other day at the laying of the foundation stone of a new technical school in England.

George Cooper In The Independent. The llnfti-ltou.e illntfer To the Editor of the Journal and Courier: Concerning the communication of your correspondent "H. T. B." In last Friday's Issue, kindly allow me to make the following observations: 1. As to whether we shall have a bath-house or not, the question Is no longer open for discussion. The people asked for It and the city government granted it and appropriated the money. If the bath-house is not erected it will be because a few men array themselves against the city government and the people. 2. Concerning the suggestion that the city help the factory owners to put up shower baths for the worklngmen, would eay that If the city owned the factory It might work very well, but If the factory owners who have water and heat at hand do not care to take as good care of the men as they do of their horses I am not in favor of helping them financially. 3. The article quoted from the Phil adelphla medical journal contains some good points, but as a whole It Is stupid and behind the times. Who does not know that alongside every swimming pool there are spray baths to obviate the very difficulty described by this medical expert, who has the temerity to tell us that "the city poor Is a small part of the whole body of citizens?" No date is given the article. How old Ir this opinion? When was it written? For ovpr one hundred years the city of Liverpool has given Its citizens public baths and the scheme has been com mended all over the world by the best men in the medical profession. Pliny may not haVfe- been a medical expert, but he was a keen observer, and he said that for six hundred years Rome needed no medicine but her publlo baths. The drug business could not have been very prosperous In those days when the swimming pools of pio- cletlan accommodated between three thousand and four thousand bathers at one time and In a structure which ri valled the Parthenon In beauty. With the same precautions being taken there Is no more danger of spreading, disease Indeed, not nearly as much as there Is in the sulphur te.ths of Bale IiKe City or at Lemlngton Spa In England. For twenty-five years municipal ex perts and medical authorities In Great Britain have agitated the matter of baths until, there Is not a city of the size of New Haven In the British Isles without a public bath-house. In the public baths of London the public school schildren are taught to swim, and about ten thousand certifi cates are given yearly, swimming les sons being In the regular curriculum. The bath-house movement in Amer ica Is only about ten years old and has had practically no opposition. The op position In New Haven is purely one of apathy. Tour correspondent "H. T. B." quotes an obscure publication, or a writer who Is still more obscure. I have in front cf me a bibliography of one hundred and thirty-three books, pamphlets and articles advocating the public baths and covering the agitation of all civilized countries. I will quote one article, not at all because it is the best, but because It is right here at home in New Haven. From an article In the Yale Review of May, 1897, I quote: "By a public bath Is meant an establishment where a hot or cold bath may be had the year round. One must refer to the experience of baths in England or Europe, because there la practically no guide In this country, at least on a large scale. It has never occurred to our critics that It is civic economy to give a person an opportunity to wash; that it is also morally better to give a man an oppor tunity to wash the outside of his body with water rather than the inside with whiskey. If persons could be clean in their persons they would insist on cleanliness in their homes; hence the tenements with their disease and dirt would go. Clean bodies In cities repre sent the earlier stages of an emergence from urban barbarism to civic civiliza tion. "In spite of all the above facts the student of the modern city Is confront ed with the stupendous apaViy and In difference on the part of public officials, and a thousand times more apathetic Indifference on trie part of the people who might have Improved sanitation for the demanding of public baths. If the public baths of London should be arbitrarily closed by the municipal au thorities a revolution would result un less they should be opened at once." It is like threshing over old straw to argue for a bath-house. I wish some official -would braVely tell the people why progress Is so slow In the erection of the bath-house advocated by the en tire press of New Haven, voted for by councilmen and aldermen, signed by the mayor and the money appropriated by the board of finance?
