This, adds the minister, may be re garded as a sign of a liberal attitude to ward foreigners. CASTOR I A ForlnfjrtSMd Children. Tkfi Kinif Vm Ha6 AlWijfS Bondlt A Big Sale CASTER u TOILETS. TEETH SHvh on Thirty-first Street nml on Arthur I'Iiici, Opposite tlic Capitol. Sr-iinrnte Sj Ktciiiw, on the Xrw York lMim. AVI1I Give M(lri Huplil 'er Iee Cost of the Improvements. The Potomac Telephone Company is ar ranging to establish two sub-stations one in Georgetown and one on Capitol Hill in the near future. The ground has been se cured and the buildings will be erected as i soon as possible. The Georgetown station will be on Thirty-Iirst Street between 11 and X Streets, opposite the Custom House, and the Capitol Hill station in Arthur Place, off B Street, opposite the Capitol Grounds. The new stations will be arranged with separate systems of numbers as the Xov York telephone service is. There will be a "Georgetown" series and a "Capitol" series. The division of the service it is thought will facilitate Its working and make it much more rapid than at present. These new stations with extensions of thp conduits and lines in various direc tions that the company will make if it can i secure authority from Congress, will re- I quiie the use of large part of the cash I realized from the recent sale of the new bonds by the company. A million dollars of the bonds have been issued, of the $1,- I 500,000 authorized. Half or this amount J are held to take up the old bond issue of j the company, and the other half were sold ! recently to provide cash for these improve- J ments. There remains in the treasury of i the company unissued ?r.00.000 of the full amount authorized, but these will not be issued at present. There has b?en much misapprehension regarding the status of the Chesapeake and ! Potomac Telephone Company with relation to the Bell Telephone Company and the American Telegraph and Telephone Com- , pany on account of an article recently pub lished in a local paper in which it v as J slated that the American Company had sc oured the control of the Chesapeake Com- j pany by purchasing stock in the local mar ket. This is not what has o:euned. As ' far as is known the American Company has not purchased a share of stock from any t Washington holder. The American Com- , pany. as is well known, has bought out the . Bell Company, which has been always the I controlling interest in the local concern, i In this way it has simply taken over as one of the assets of the Bell parent com- I pany T per cent of the Chesapeake Com- ' pany stock. . I It is said to be probable that the Ameri can Company will soon go further than this by issuing its own itock to Bell Company stockholders', lit flSce, of old Bell Company sto?k. thus securing a more direct control j of the parent concern vand of the hramhes. the Chesapeake Company among them In lime this plan will, it is said, lead to the disappearance alijiost entirely of the iden tity of the local concern. j THE WORLD'S COMMERCE.

America remains practieallv stationary, i about ihkhaFnceJ tion 11.1 to S.3 per cent. The statistics also show though the German mercantile m al! rine is far from approaching that of Great Britain, it stands second in the list. The total number is about the same as that of America, but German possesses about twice as many steamers. DIVORCE DECREES GRANTED. J In I'lircc f I ! t'Ki" llii!iniut Vi -r- l"-t it toner.
