Sh valuep uponatheir servtices, and,

at :;marked degree, opening negoqta
ions with a view to the building of a'
cupyacht meaqs a fee that in some
iotherprifession would be Jooked upon

,1.makers, while finally the skip

.. ie- rather starting statement was
madie by Sir Th as Lipton four years
,ago that the ere cost of ~tlth . ~4f ,lA
r9ck I. was tween $400,000 and $b00,
00,,while e expense of bringing "the
oficers and crew were extra. That
Sseems Ibig lot to pay for the vessel,
but ir Thomas should be the best
- ority on the subject of the cost of
-tke yacht.
SIf ,he expended a sum approaching
half a million dollars four years ago
,o,. his challenging yacht the nmoney
'.the present trip is costing him must be
a iruin excess of the figures named. The
Lipton fleet now here is proof of that..
It is easy to believee that the Shamrockl
iiI. cost quite as much to build as the
sihmrock 1., and it is quite ,pure the
1"bringing over of three crews, those of
-the Shamrocks and of the tender
SOruazer, must stand him in a 'bigger
-amount than the single crew of four
years ago and the additional assistance
he obtained in` the United States,
So, if $550,000 or more represented
the challenger's outlay the first attempt

Treasury officials are permitting and
encouraging sompe experiments on the
east front of the treasury department
with walit is claimed to be a preserva
tive for sandstone and other materials
out of which the east front is con
structed. It is hoped that the experi
mtents may prove ::successful, ,as the
huge sandstone pillars of the east fronit
have; been disintegrating for aninumber
of years, and it is only a question of
time when. they will have to be re-.
.moved unless some other way out of
the trouble is found.
The hlige pillars of the east front of
the treasury are the-.only ones in the
building of sandstone. The others, on
the 'south, west and north fronts, are
of 'granite. The disintlgration of the
sandstone has been'. noticeable for a
good while, and efforts have been made
to stopl.it so far without :success.
Coulidn't Bribe the Colonel.
Thb secretary of wir recently sent
to the treasury' deparitment a box of
cigars and $100 received from the de
partment of Texas. It appears that
Colonel 'Clem, chief quartermaster in
th at state, found the cigars on his .desk
and upon 'opening the box discovegld
that it-was from a contractor who was
doing some work undier-his supervision.
In the box was the money. The colonel'
was indignant and referred the matter
to 'General. Fred Grant, commanding
the depiartment.
The contractor acknowledged sending
the cigars by a messeniger boy, but
said he did not know anything about
the money. General Grant thought
that under such cirhumstances nothing
could be done by proseiithig the man
for attemipted bribery, and so he sent
the cigars anha money to..the war de
partment, whence they were trans
ferred to the treasury, like all other
unclaimed funds. The ,cigars subse
quently were sold tor the. sum of $3,
which was added to the $i00,
