Mo Delay In llullilliig Jlllim-noto'* Slate Capitol—'The Condition* ken tin 11y tlic Same a* in tlnrCair —l ow I'rlre* of l.abor and Mate r ial a Ureal Advantage. The following from the St. Paul Pioneer-Press is pleasant reading to the people of that State, and shows just the business reasons why con struction at this time is good business policy. Gov. Clougli yesterday signed the bill designed to facilitate the construc tion of the new eapitol by authorizing the issue by the eapitol commissioners of certificates of indebtedness to the aggregate of $300,000 to anticipate the tax levy for eapitol purposes. The hill does not contemplate any increase in the indebtedness of the State nor of the total to be expended for the new eapitol nor of the tax levy of the State. It simply allows the eapitol commissioners to anticipate in part their income, so that advantage may be taken of the present low prices of labor and material. It is a fact, susceptible of mathematical proof» that by this procedure the small in terest charge that will result can be saved several times over. The certificates arc to draw not to exceed -1 per cent, and arc to be sold after advertisement to the highest bidders for not less than par. They will be issued in denominations of s3l) and upwards, ottering an opportunity for secure investment by tlie people of the State. Tliey will be issued only as needed in the progress of the work. Attorney-General Childs gave Gov. Clougli an opinion on the constitu tionality of the bill before it was signed. lie approves it on tlie strength of Judge Williston's decision holding that the law of 1893 is valid. "We had a ease before Judge Williston only a few days ago," said Gen. Childs last night, "in which action was brought to restrain the State eapitol commission from pro ceeding further with the work of erecting the building, on tlie ground that the law of 1893, under which it is acting, was unconstitutional. The court held that it was constitutional, and I am of the opinion that this law rests on the same footing. Inasmuch as the matter will come before the Supreme court anyhow. I thought it best to have the bill signed and let the whole subject be passed upon at once." Corruption of ibe Dlepeuearjr Ltw, A Charleston graml jury, in a re cent report to the court, presented an exposure of the workings of the South Carolina dispensary law and charge it as a source of many vicious and degrading corruptions. The Port land Oregonian jnstly says of it: The favorable report alleged to have been sent by the Governor of South Carolina to the Washington legislature relative to the dispensary law, is not borne out by the facts as they appear to the view of the Charleston grand jury, whose report, just filed, scored the dispensers and the methods em ployed by them. The jury accuses the dispensers of uniformly disregard ing their rules, and asserts that sales are made to minors, to people who can't sign their names, and, in fact, to all and everyone who will buy. The jury also says that cases presented to them were supported by most flimsy evidence, and reference is made to an important case which was not brought before them. They ask significantly for the reason for this. Marshal Mar tin and Sergeant Alexander are ac cused of furnishing money to con stables with which to make cases. These arc well known incidents of the dispensary system, and Washington is entitled to hearty congratulations for having escaped it, despite Governor Rogers and his ambition for a State liquor machine. - a Even (he Humble match Will Have to " €»o." The electric match is the next im portant invention promised. Before very long the phosphorus-tipped wooden splints now in use will be replaced by a handy little tool that may be carried in the pocket or hung up conveniently for striking a light when wanted. Twentieth century people doubtless will speak of the "hell sticks" of the present day as primitive and absurd, just as we are deposed to look with scorn upon the flint and steel of our forefathers. Already there is on the market a gaslightcr which affords more than a suggestion of the electric match of the future, a twist of the handle generating sufficient elec tricity to accomplish the purpose. Also there are several styles of cigar lighters, for their sup plies of electricity upon storage bat teries. For some years past the gas jets in theaters and public buildings have been lighted by the electric "Hew to the Line. Let the Chips Fall "Where they May." spark. Indeed, most persons have seen the curious experiment of light ing the gas with the linger after a shuttle across the carpet to generate the electricity needed, savs the Wash ington correspondent of the Boston Transcript. The portable electric lighter is bound to come. NATURE'S LANTERNS. The tilgaiilic »I rr (-'lie* lon ml lii Mexico. Milo F. Dillman, of Denver, has been telling a reporter for the San Antonio Express about the giant iire tlies of Southern Mexico. " Tlie part of these giant flies in which the light glows," he said, " is ordinarily tlie size of a baseball, but whan angered or excited tlie part grows to the size of a toy balloon. The light shed is continuous and steady. "In Morelia one night I noticed several young men on bicycles, to which were attached several of tlie blue and green Dies that lit up tlie pathway before them in a glare of beautiful light. " Tliese large Hies are only found in ilie depths of an almost impenetrable forest. I was with a party that worked two days chopping into the wood, and there we waited for the coming of night. I shall never forget the first sight I had of the fire-flies. "A pair Hew directly above us—two fiery globes that glowed in the dark ness like suns aflame. Then others came within our limited visions, and others and others until tens of thou sands of them lit up the forest. We watched through the entire night. It was simply impossible to realize that they were Hies. They seemed like Chinese lanterns or beautiful globes of lights moving magically through the air. When they would see us the fires would glow more brightly and greatly increase in size. "This, we were told, was one of nature's provisions for the protection of the flics, it being a well-known fact reptiles and beasts arc afraid of fire. The fire of the male is hluc and that of the female green, and each changes to a flaming red as the fire ball en larges. They fly in pairs and the sight of innumerafllc blue and green fire globes, changing suddenly to im mense spheres of red light floating hither and thither, amid the chatter ing monkey and the restless moving of tropical birds, is beyond description. "Itoften happens that other insects attack the flies and the fire globes swell up to such a size that they fre quently burst with a report like a pis tol. "The uses to which these (lies may be put are many. Ten thousand had been gathered when I was there for the Cinco de Mayo celebration at Urauapau and Coalcoman. The flies wero tied by strings, which, when pulled, would irritate them, causing them to change from the blue and green lights to red lights as large as cannon balls. Rlr. Ilanna'a Aaaurauce. Tacoma Union. Mark llanna's agent has been or dered out of the capital of Kentucky. What a fortunate thing it would bo for the country if the Kentuckians would make an example of liirn by stringing bis carcass up to a tree- The sooner llanna's methods are re pudiated the better it will be for the country. There is no doubt but our politics reck with corruption and rottenness but the assumption of the millionaire manager that all men arc corrupt and that lie can bribe and buy whom ho chooses should be resented. The success of Hanna in the Presi dential campaign was a shame and disgrace to the nation, for he made no secret of the fact that he relied on the money of tho trusts, bankers and brokers to win, yet there was a saving feature in the knowledge that thous ands of honest, well-ineaning voters were mislead and deceived. However, when Hanna presumes to inaugurate a permanent system of bribery and carry it into every State in the Union, it is time to call a halt unless we are to acknowledge ourselves a nation of knaves and fools. llanna's success in the national campaign, followed by the case with which he stepped into tho United States Senate, has no doubt led him to believe that with the use of money the government and the people can be brought to a state of absolute sub serviency to the will of the money power. We do not believe the peoplo of the United States, as a rule, are willing to admit that the nation can be ruled by organized wealth, yet their conduct in the past has no doubt greatly en couraged Hanna and his ilk in the be lief that such is the case, and that the only thing necessary to their success is the judicious use of money among the people. OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, APRIL 30, 1897. MIIS. M'KINLEY'S KAti-ItAG. What is the use of making over this old dress, when I might just as well be making over a $3,000 dress? I have only to send for Mrs. McKinley's rag hag. It is not at all likely that she will wear tlie inaugural dress more than once; wo know those grand peo ple never wear a party dress but once, and by this time her rag-hag must be about full. I hear that those fine ladies always, or nearly always, wear full dress, and I should think a $3,000 dress must, of course, be extra full; most likely it is fuller than any dress I ever saw. I ought to make five or six dresses for myself out of one of hers, for I am very small and do not like full dresses either, while Mrs. Me- Kinley is quite large and docs, judging from the pictures I have seen of her. I might wear the $3,000 dress just as it is, until warm weather. Very likely I will have to take a reef in the jib—l meant to say a tuck in the skirt and a few in the waist, before I can wear it. The people of Washing ton, I). C.,will not come out here these hard time, and if they should, some of her near neighbors even, is not likely they would recognize the dress. A lady that can afford a $3,000 dress will not bother to make over or turn, so it looks to reason that nearly all of her dresses would be good, but even if they are faded a little; I can fix them up and with a little diamond dye they will look just like new. I have not a doubt but what Mrs. McKinley will give her rag-bag to the first person that asks for it, so I think I'll send right away, I always want to be first. I shall use every thing that I find in it. What was good enough for the the first lady in the land is good enough for me. lam not at all proud, even the pocket handkerchiefs will come handy. How the people of the M. E. church of Olyinpia will stare, when they see ine sail down the aisle with so full and beautiful a dress. They will never guess that it canic out of a rag-bag. To one who never had more than three dresses at a time (one for work, one for common and one for extra,) the contents of that exalted rag-bag will seem like wealth itself. Just think of the skirts, waists and aprons; jackets, scarfs aud capes; silk,satin, velvet and plush; yellow, pink, green, red, white and blue! I will have to make over, and that is one kind of work that I can can do better than any other; having such long practice, I might claim to be an expert in that line, only that I don't like to brag. I said I would use everything in that bag and 1 meant it it too; all the pieces of silk, et cetera, that are left— and making over always makes pieces. I shall piece up into beautiful crazy quilts, "Star of Bethlehem," "Irish chain," "Log cabin" and the Milky Way," and other kinds that I can think of or get a pattern off, the old silks that I have no use for, will make lovely linings for the quilts. Then I will give a series of quilting bee's. Thero may be somo old silk lace curtains in the bag, and lots of odds and-ends of ribbon and may be some old jewelry, for of course Mrs. Mc- Kinley will not wear old-fashioned jewelry, and very likely Bhe will throw it into the rag-hag and if I should wear it with the $3,000 gown the peo ple hero will never know but what it is right up to date, (the diamonds will be so dazzling.) I shall give a lawn social next June and I invite you now. Be sure and come, for I shall have lots of great, luscious, cool strawberries, such as grow no where else in the world, and cream (Jersey cream); even the President's wife will have no better; and cake, old fashioned cake; just such cake as our grandmother's used to make, that would keep for three years, and was usually baked in a ten quart pan. I will make the cake now, so it will be sure to be good by the time strawberries arc rq>e in June. I sup pose Mrs. McKinley has the recipe, for of course she had a grandmother, too, sometime or other, but rcceipes are easy to lose. Her's might have got mislaid in the confusion of moving into the White House—and right here let me say, I think it a bad plan to move in March; it is altogether too early, and when women have a voice in matters and things partaining to the moving of the Presidents out and in, they will have the moving later, say about the first of May, as that is the best time to clean up the trash in the back yards. As it is now, the Presi dent, all tired out with getting moved and settled, has to go and havo an extra session. Well to get back to the rag-bag: I hope Mrs. McKinley will not feel delicate about putting in the bag—all the old shoes and slippers not in actual use, that she can find about the White House. Besides those just slightly worn that she brought with her, there will probably be old shoes enough to last me the rest of my days, especially as I am a master hand at fixing up old shoes, if they are not to far gone; and hats— I suppose f really could make three hats out of one, for I would not want my head to look like a llower garden, or an ostrich farm, either, and another tiling, I would surely have enough gloves for once, for worn and soiled gloves do accumulate faster than any thing else. I supposo there would he gloves and mits of every color of the rainbow; I favor black myself, but it does not matter; I hope site will put them all in, for I can color them to suit myself; I only hope they are not much worn; I suppose there will be all kinds, as well as colors, long handled and short handled. I wonder if I might just hint that I would like above all things an old violin? I cannot play but. then I can soon learn. It cannot be much of a trick to draw a bow back and forth— and an old Dutch clock, and some sil ver knives and forks anil sjioons, aud a few silver mugs, (silver is so cheap now, I don't suppose those grand peo ple will favor it much.) I would not be at all surprised to find a good many silver pieces in among the old clothes, whether I ask for it or not, I hope the bag will contain some old brass curtain rings, I have a special use for them, and lots of silk stockings, I do not mind darning at all, anil some white flannel underclothes, I do not like red and I don't believe Mrs. McKinley does, but then I will use whatever I find in the bag, red or white. I am not at all proud, as I said before. Tlie little rags and scraps left over will make beautiful rugs. I will for once iu my life have all my floors covered, up stairs and down—and if there should he a cream silk morning gown that I could put on as soon as I get dishes done, and lie always ready for callers; how the people will envy me when they see mo in all my glory, (I suppose I ought to say Mrs. Mc- Kinley's glory. Now do not think me selfish, for I am not, I always remember the poor and needy, having so long been that way myself, I suppose, and all the common dresses Mrs. McKinley wears on wash day and baking day and house-cleaning days, I shall lay aside and give to the worthy poor. There is my neighbor, Mr. Populist, he shall have all, or about all of Mr. McKin ley's clothes that I find in the hag, I know they will be a perfect fit, and there may be a Coney Island bathing suit. I will give him that, but the flour sacks will make good dish clothes, I will keep tlicni. The old White House Bible that I suppose must be somewhat tarnished by the many oaths taken on it, will be thankfully received, (so likewise will other small favors,) it will look very well on my center-table and it will seem to Mrs. McKinley so pious of me to ask foi the Bible when I ask for her Rag-bay.

Supreme Court; but the tax on refined sugar for the benefit of the sugar trust, on wool and woolen goods for the benefit of the wool trust, and on manufacturers of iron and steel for the benefit of the iron king, is deemed by the Repuplican party constitu tional.

Hcgeut lllandford Dive* Some In formation Krgnrdlttg the I.title Known Stute Institution—lt I* l int lien 11 y Practical In It* De tall*. Wnlla Walla ITuion. "Our people should visit this insti tution," said Mr. blandford to a Union reporter, " and learn what it is doing. It is giving a living example of the modern conception of an education— one that will enable a man or woman to make a living for himself or herself. It combines the efficiency of both tlie college and the training school. It is very edifying to see tin girls and boys with big aprons on working in the biological and chemical laboratories; making "cultures" of microscopic bugs, looking for the baccilus that is to spread contagion among and kill off the ravaging squirrels, or prevent chicken cholera, or kill ntiee and hundreds of others; or forming all manner of chemical compounds. Or perhaps they are gardening, or raising fiowers, or learning to make butter and cheese; or are in the orchard pruning, grafting, budding—all under the eves of a trained scientist—or learning to farm where the 'soil' is not considered ntere earth, hut a complex substance made up of many elements and having great possibilities for plant growth 'if you only know bow.' Everything is inspired with life and interest. There is no fine social dis tinction between the man who studies Greek and him who cultivates sugar beets or bees. The plan of the college should turn out men and women— not dudes and dudiucs; workers, not drones." " We have been notified," contin ued Mr. Blandford, " that the govern ment has 200 pounds of sugar beet seeds to lie sent soon. Walla Walla should get some of them. Every county in the State has done more experimenting with them than we have. Our biologist also thinks he has isolated the squirrel bacillus, and is about ready to furnish the farmers with a remedy for this pest. Work is being pushed in orchard experimen tation, soil analysis and assaying. Several hundred varieties of orchard trees are now being tried. Walla Walla county should have her different soils analyzed; until this is done we can never know their full value or crop possibilities. Having made a great success of the farmers' school and the dairy school, the faculty is considering the advisability of a school for prospectors. "We expect to turn out some very promising civil engineers soon. While in the mechanical engineer's depart ment the boys make everything from a tool chest to a dynamo. Walla Walla farmers should try some of the new grass—the bromus inermis—it seems to thrive well on hill sides and yields a very fine crop. " The college will close for the sea son June 25, and its first class of graduates will reeeivo their diplomas and degrees. We are trying to es tablish a curriculum for all the high schools in the State so that they may be uniform, and their graduates can matriculate without passing through a preparatory class. Some timo dur ing the summer we will try to examine and report upon all the natural water powers of the State, a subject that Eastern investors are now looking up, and there arc many other lines of practical work under way that will be of benefit to the State." A FAUST RELIC GONE. Birthplace •! the lamoui Conjurer Sola tor Juuk. The house in Roda, Saxe-Alteuburg, where Dr. Johann Faust, the famous magician and soothsayer of legendary fame, was born toward the last quarter of the fifteenth century, was knocked down to a native junk dealer for $25 the other day, and is now being dis mantled. Five yoars ago, when the Chicago World's Fair Commission dis patched a small army of curiosity hunters to all parts of the globo to seek attractions and freaks, the good people of Rod a asked a cool hundred thousand dollars for the little pile of brick, wood, iron, inortar and dust that was be taken down and rc-erected in the Windy City. But the price was considered too stiff even for those squandering days, and the negotiations fell through. In order that the house might not fall down the municipal fathers of the little town ordered its immediate demolition. This historic structure stands, or stood until quite recently, on a rocky eminence near the Jenaisches Thor (city gate). It is a frame building, very rickety, and has been extensively repaired. There is a legend that it dates back to the year 1450 or 1400, as do many other buildings of Roda- That Faust saw the light in one of its dingy rooms, with Doors of trampled earth and tiny windows in leaden frames, is attested by several automatic statements in the town chronicle and also in tlie Fnnst liuch, printed in 1837, from which all later writers on the Faust legend quote, and which is their chief authority. ■ - ELECTRICITY EASY. Pciiuy-lu-tlie.Klot Device Applied to Ihc fclualvc Power. As gas has been supplied to tens of thousands of consumers in London by means of penny-in-thc-slot machines, it is now proposed to provido the elec tric lightning by similar apparatus- Several meters have already been devised to which penny-in-tlie-slot machinery is attached, and some of these have been introduced into the St. Fancras district, among other places. Indeed, syndicates and com panies have been formed with the ob ject of introducing the use of such machines on a larger scale. The pro" motcrs of these enterprises, in some instances as sub-contractor witii elec tric-lightning corporations, bind them selves to use a certain quantity of elec tric units at so much per round figure- They in consideration therefor put up meters and fittings in the consumers' premises free of cost and repay them selves by a little added charge on eon sumption through penny-in-the-slot machines. One of these London companies undertakes to supply the electric light to an eight candle-power incandescent lamp for six hours on a penny being dropped into the box. Nay, more, the consumer, may switch off or on his light, just as it is required, for if it is not burning the meter does not register against him. He could, for instance, burn it an hour a day for six conse cutive days, until he had his full penny's worth of electricity. Varieties of these machines are so made that they can be fed with thirty-six pennies dropped in one after another, with the result that the meter will work on un til the value of that amount has been recorded as usual. Of course the con sumer can repeat the putting a penny in the slot process just as often as he wishes to secure an addition or a continuous supply. The argument in favor of the intro duction of these machines is that elec tricity may bo brought within the reach of everybody, and that com mercially, they are the right thing, as thero can be no bad debts from un collected bills, and the trilling extra expense to the consumer is not felt, as the mode of paying best suits his pocket. It is estimated that there are nearly 100,000 gas meters in use in the metropolis, and the argument is that cheap electricity ought to become still more popular among the masses. Silver Gaining Strength. The ultimate prospects for silver re" monetization are not as gloomy as tlicy might be. The lessons of disaster in India, due to the closing of the mints of the rapid growth of com merical competition, suffered from sil ver countries like Japan, already have served to create a change of opinion in Great Britain on the subject of monometallism, which may soon grow to conquering proportions. The Lon don Nalioiuxl Review asserts that, in cluding Mr. Balfour, whose views are well known on this side, nine mem bers of Lord Salisbury's cabinet are ( convinced and consistent bimetallists, and all are said to be vice-presidents of the British Bimetallic League, the avowed purpose of which is to " urge upon tho British government the necessity of co-operating with other leading nations for the establishment by international agreement of free coinage of gold and silver at a fixed ratio." Four other members of the minority are either favorable to or without prejudice against remonetiza tion. Sir Michael Hicks Beach is the ono hide-bound gold man in tho cabinet, and as he is a financial mag nate and power his attitude is im portant, and will be supported, per haps, by most of the groat banking houses of the United Kingdom; but in spite of that it is fairly evident that the force of British opinion is not all one way as it was a few years ago.
