GETRID OF^THE MUD Bitte'sPrUelptl Strut. Staid Bs^PifddTUi Tmt. MR.BLACKFORD'S OPINION ThoCity tnllnMr Cons Mars Sand-^stone Bloeks Bast For Butta-^Tha Oradss ara Too Staap^For Aaphoit-Tha Cost. Bern,April 14.^Several member* of^the city council and a number of city offl-^ciaU ore takinjl a Itva Interest In the sub-^Juct of street paring at the present time.^It ia absolutely certain that the only way^to (ret rkl of the mud la to pave the streets.^Probably there are no ^treats in America^that need patriae WOfsO than dot be streets^ot Butta. Tho mortar baa been delayed in^order to gitre tin water company an oppor^^tunity to lay all It* mains. If the streets^wcro pared before the water mains were^laid, it would be necessary to tear up tho^pavement. Now that the savors and water^pipe* are laid, the time baa arrived for t he^long-needed street paving, and it la likely^that, during the present year, active steps^will bo taken toward paring the principal^streets of the city. Fortunately,toe city of Butte has in Mr.^Blackford an engineer who baa devoted^much study to the subject of paving. A^year ago. sir. Blackford, at bis own ex^^pense, took an extended tour through the^cities of the Bast, He investigated the^matter of street paring in many cities,^and particularly in Washington, Omaha.^Chicago, Denver, Duluth. Columbus and^St. Paul. Naturally the opinion of Mr.^Blackford ia the most valuable opinion to^be obtained on Ibis subject in the city. Mr.Blackford to a Standard reporter^this afternoon spoke of the various styles^of street paving and the advantages and^objections of each. Mr. Blackford baa^not yet fully made up his mind as to the^best style of paving for Butte, but his talk^on tbe subject is of interest and value. He^said: Ihave been figuring a good deal on^sandstone blocks. I am afraid there are^no suitable granite blocks in this part of^the country aud probably It would be^cheaper to ship the sandstone blocks from^Colorado. There is no quarry in Montana^that is getting out paving atones, while in^Colorado there are ledges of sandstone in^thin layers, quarried easily and cheaply.^Tbe expense of freighting from Denver^to Butte ia the chief thing to be consid^^ered. Yet the stone was freighted from^Denver to Omaha. Thechief objection to granite blocks^and sandstone blocks is tho fact that^grades are so much higher on one b.iIo of^me street than on the other. On Park^street, at the corner of Main, tbe grade is^lour feet lower on tbe south side than on^the north side. Tbe atone blacks are not^only noisy, but slippery. In turning^the corner of Main and Park^stieets. It would be almost^impossible to prevent heavily loaded^teams from swinging against the Savings'^I auk building. There is a difference of^four feet in the grade, while the beat en^^gineers in the country state 1 y. feet to ho^the highest iieriiiisaible grade in the cross- ,^ing ot a street, if an attempt was made^to make the grade uniform, there would^1k^ lots of kicking. The iieople on tho^north side of tbe street and tho people on^the south side would alike object to liav- '^ing a change made. A curb might obviate^to u rertain extent the trouble that tbo^grade would occasion. Woodenblocks are doubtless the^cheapest for pavement that we know of.^But this pavement Is unsanitary. It be^^comes saturated with excrement and re^^fuse, and the boards underneath become^wet and filthy and remain so. There ia^crested a sort of fungus growth under^^neath. I couldn't guarantee this pave^^ment to last more than two years anyway,^without serious defects. Big holes would^form in tbe pavement. If watched atten^^tively and repaired, this pavement might^last a few years longer. In Detroit the^wood pavement'pas been condemned by^^ he health department. In Omaha, tbe^engineer states he would as soon have^mud navementa as any more wood. TheColorado sandstone affords a good^footing for horses. The chief question is^as to its durability, tn Omaha, heavy^traffic shows a tendency to gradually^round the edges. *Jkf Berber asphalt,tbe only really good^asphalt, is controlled by a mouoiraly.^I onsequently It is very expensive, and the^company will not fulfill its contracts in^the matter of repairs. In Denver better^public work ia being done then in any^fit her western city. They are using Barber^asphalt and Colorado sandstone. Axto macadam, titers Is no material^so far as I have examined ia this vicinity^that is exactly suitable. Our granite is^too full of mica to be suitable. It grinds^up rapidly under traffic. The slog from^tho smelters I think is very brittle. It^would be an experiment at the best. I am^told that there is some limestone in Silver^How canyon and in Big Hole canyon that^would be suitable, but I nave not exam^^ined It yet. Asto brick, there is no factory in this^section which makes vitrified brick, and I^do not believe we have any clay that^would make the proper brick for this pur-^pose. I do not believe brick, anyway,^would stand our heavy traffic. Ifit is decided to pave, there should^he n largo area paved at one time. Other^^wise tbe mud from the nnpaved districts^would be carried onto the paved districts.^] would have Main street from Copper to^Mercury; Park, Broadwar and Granite^Mreels, from Montana to Wyoming; t'tab^mid Academy streets; and Wyoming^street from Granite to Mercury. Approximatelythe cost of tho various^styles of paving would be as follows:^granite or sandstone blocks, not less than^^15 per front foot on each side. Asphalt^w ould cost fully as much. Wood would^raet probably one balf that. The^macadam would cost probably 15. In^Duluth, a city as billy and cold as Butte,^tin-blocks were found to be best. The^n'phnli is good only where the grades and^the truffle are light. It shrinks in extreme^i old. Tlie estimated cost given abovo in^^cludes catch basins at the corners and the^carriage of the water to tho storm sewers. Ifthe street paving is paid for at one^t hoe, the city a* a whole may assume one-^I a If the cost. If the payments are .dis-^trihuteil over a period of three years, the^property owners must pay the whole. ITWAS A BLUFF. AblwardtFailed ^^ Frisdut-s His seasa-^'Isfjgf Doeassea-a Bt;itt.:N,April 14.^There was a crowded^attendance at the opeuing of tbe reicli-^s:ag owing to the interest excited by the^statement that Herr Ahlwardt would to-^^lay present the documents he promised^to produce, implicating high German offi^^cials in corrupt conduct. Upon opening^the proceedings, Herr Ahlwardt presented^a written statement which tbe president^rcHiiucd and returned to Ahlwardt, an^^nouncing amid general laughter that the^IsOMS would proceed to ordinary business.^It is understood Ahlwardt withdrew the^documents of w liich lie had spoken, al^^though the general hubbub and laughter^rendered it difflcut to ascertain w liether^Ablwardt had really doue so or not. ANADROIT LIAR. TeaagWells Is a YerlteMa Astral^De4g^ r la the Matter ^f Esperieaee. Bum,April 14 -Roy Wails, tho boy^burglar, and bis mother were arraigned^before Judge McMurpbsy this morn ng,^the boy on a charge of burglary and his^mother for receiving stolen goods. Roy^waived examination, and waa remanded^In default of 1600 bonds. Mrs. Weils^pleaded not guilty and her examination^was set for Monday. Tbe scene presented^when she was arraigned wrs sensational^to a high degree, and would have beau^quito affecting end touching, hsd not the^Judge and tbe officers of tho court believed^tbe woman to be shamming and ^pulling^It on,^ as one of them expressed it. Mrs.^Wells cried and sobbed aud worked her^^self into hysterics, which so alarmed her^attorney, Mr. Duffy, that be requested tbe^court to send for a physician. The re^^quest was not complied with, his honor^holding it to be unnecessary. As she was^unable to give bonds, she was taken back^to Jail, where she has been since her ar^^rest yesterday morning. Tbeboy is as accomplished a liar as be^is an adroit thief, slid so hardened'that^bo appears to be well nigh beyond re^^demption. I-ast night he said tiiat bis^statement to Detective Khoades yesterday^morning that his mother had taken charge^of the goods alter be had stolen them and^taken them home, was false. This morn^^ing lie reiterated bis first statement, and^again said bis mother bad taken the stuff^and that she had dis|iosed of tbe proceeds^of some of bis former robberies. His ar^^raignment to-day was the sixth time that^the boy has been before Judge McMur-^phey, charged with stealing. '1 liree times^he was let off off on account of his youth^and three tunes he has been held. Once^he served 60 days in the county Jail for^petty larceny, to w Inch bo was allowed to^plead guilty by order of Judge Pembcrton,^before whom be was arraigned on a charge^of burglary, committed last fail when he^and several other boys broke into the Bee^Hive store. Before lie waa impritoned he^was released under a auspension of sen^^tence on the promise of bis mother th.it^she would send bim away to school. In^^stead, she sent him to Hoiena, w here he^remained a short time and then returned^to Butte, and soon afterward was arrested^for stealing and was committed to serve^out the suspended sentence. The Jewelry^which be obtained by bis last burglary baa^all been recovered, as be accompauteu^Chief Gray last night to where he had con^^cealed it and turned it over to the officer.

BtTTE,April 14.^Deputy Uuited States^Marshal Alex Scott, to whom has been^delegated the authority to register tbe^Chinese residents of But.e who may wish^to comply w ith tbe Geary law. is not hav^^ing his bands very full in that diieciiouss^yet. In fuct he has not registered a single^Chinaman so far and it is altogether prob-^ahlo that the new law will go into effect^on May 5, without 0110 of them having se^^cured tbo necessary certificate of resi^^dence permitting bun to remain in this^country, ^Jimmy July^ alone excepted. DeputyInternal Revenue Collector S.^H. Almon is now making his headquarters^aroiimi Missoula aud Kalispel. and is reg-^istsriug a great many of the Mongolians^in that country, but tbe pig-taile I Urol Iters^in Butte are a great deal more stubliorn.^1 be Chinese here come out Hat footed in^their opposition to the new law and state^that they will not comply with it, unless^thsy are ordered to do so by the all-power^^ful Six Companies. They have so far no^arrangements for a legal defense, but^they are depending on their bosses at^San Francisco to help them out when^tbe arrests commence to lollow tbe^refusal to comply with tbo law. ^Louie.^^the Chinese interpreter and local repre^^sentative of the Six onipanies, stated^this evening that the Celestials will do^nothing 111 regard to registering untii they^are advised by the companies, and it is^his opinion that the laws-ill be entirely^ignored, at least until a test rase has been^made. If tbe decision is against them,^the,Chinese will then comply with tho law.^Dr.'Muie Pock, who represents another^class of Chinamen, also says the law will^be ignored until tho supreme court has^liessed upon it constitutionality. If any^arrests are made In tbe meantime, he says^the Six Companies will solid a lawyer^from San Francisco to fight the cases. Neitherof tbe above mentioned leaders^seems to care anything about tbe recent^change tn tbe treasury department regu^^lations governing the registration of the^Chinese. Hereafter, no photographs will^be required on applications for registra^^tion and, in addition to this, only one per^^son, instead of two, as originally directed,^will be required to bear witness to the^lawful atatus of tbe Mongol desiring the^privilege of residenco in t be United States^after May 6. The law makes no distinc^^tion in regard to these witnesses and they^can be either white, colored or Chinese.^In tbe registertiiig of the Chinese they^^ill be divided into two classes, laborers^sod persons other than laborers. The^laundry men and women will be classed^as laborers. The certificate of residence^which is issued reads as follows: Thisis to cert f y thata Chinese Dow residing at Untie, lias made H|iRlicallonNo. ... to me for a certificate of^residence under the provisions of the set of^congress, approved Mav 5, ikk^. Hnd 1 certify^that It appears fruat the anMavils ol witnesses,^submitted with said aisjsiirailou, tliat said was within the limits of the Initeel Kt .les at the lime of the |iassage of said actsnd was then residing atand Histhe was at that time lasfullv entitled to re^^ins, n lu the f illicit states slid thai the following^Is a descriptive list of said 1'hluess Thenfollows the name, age, local resi^^dence, occupation, height, color of eyes,^complexion and physical marks or pecu^^liarities for identification. Priorto the receipt of the new order,^three face photographs of a specified de^^scription were required in addition to the^affidavit before a cert illrale could be is^^sued. The Geary law in itself includes^no demand for photographs, but as a mat^^ter of convenience and precaution the^Washington authorities saw fit to supple^^ment the provisions of the act by an order^which made it necessary for the Chinese^applicant to furnish at least three, and^generally four photographs. These were^affixed to the original certificate and to^the duplicates which remained in the pos^^session of the collector. The fourth photo^^graph, while not required by regulation,^was desired for future use In determining^whether or not a Chinese bad ventured 10^secure a second certificate by fraudulent^methods. One of the gravest objections^to tbe law as far as the laboring classes^of Chinese w en- concerned was t he re^^quirement of the photographs, and in re^^scinding this order it has evidently been^tbe intention of the government to remove^every foundation for objections of this^character. Aathe matter now stands It is merely a^rase of making an affidavit before a reg^^istration officer and thus securing evory^right of resilience without one cent of ex^^pense. Nor will there be any incon^^venience n obtaining certificate* nftir^the application and affidavit are made.^Formerly it necessitated not only an hour^in making out the affidavit but several^days' deuiv and several visits to the^bureau before the work was completed.^Mr. Scott does not as yet know what ac^^tion will bo taken w ith the ^ bitiese who^refuse to register. Before taking llnnl^action in the matter, tho local authorities^expect further orders from Washington.
