trial Condition.
Berlin, Dec. 4. Official investiga
tions made by the municipal council
as to the number of unemployed in
the various Industries of Germany, re
veal a rather worse condition of af
fairs than had already been intimated
by the German press. These investi
gations have resulted in showing that
only 20,600 men are employed in the
metal trades today as against 73,100
employed in these same trades in the
month ot October, 1900. The working
hours have been reduced in half of
the factories. The unemployed in the
larger towns amount to from 7 to 10
per cent of their populations, and the
aggregate of unemployed in Germany
reaches 500.000 men or 4 per cent of
the total number of artisans in the
country. -9

the stakes. It seems that in tne
original ajrreement the placing of the
stakes was indicated.
Later on the company made sonw
changes in their plans, and desired
the stakes set according to these
plans. The engineer did not feel

asked that this plat be regularly filed

gated this authority to the regular
railroad committee. At the meet
ing yesterday an agreement was
reached and the stakes driven; and
the plat as approved by the com
mittee was filed in the engineer's

next session. The preliminary work
for the new station may now be said
to have been done, and actual work
may be expected at any time.
At the meeting yesterday a full
agreement was reached, acd the mat
ter of these approaches was left in
the hands of Messrs. Weber and
Worthington. engineers for the com
pany and the city.

ing room, the kitchen being well
equipped. The living room has a
table in the middle which when not

The Traction Lines to In
troduce a Great Conve
nience for Farmers.
The Marion papers state hat the
interurban lines there are, putting in
the "Bonner rail, "and of curse that
will be introduced on the Richmond
lines when they are in full bloom, if
it proves a success there. By this
system, which is for freight service,
the farmer is provided with a wagon
with broad tires which is loaded and
drawn bv horses to the side of the
track. Here the wagon bed slides
off the wheels on a truck that runs
on the rails and is coupled right to
the train. The advantage is that
long hauls by team to the depots are
avoided and there is no expense of
reloading. The corn, wheat, even
live stock, is shipped on the rail in
the same wagon bed in which it was
originally loaded, saving time and
trouble. By this arrangement the
farmer living many miles from
town can . rcaeh . the market
at the same time as : one living
nearer the market. . The wagon bed
slips off the truck wheels. to the wheels
lor ordinary use, or on to toe trucks.

It proposes to do for freight trans

There is no second handling of the

Commission Favors Nica

Washington, D. C, Dec 4. The
i report of the isthmian cacal coiamis
j sion was sent to cocgress todv. It
; favors the Niearasruan route and
estimates the total ecst at $lSt.S"4,--0ti2.
The estimated cost of the la
jama rcut is only $141 233,35$, but
f the commission sars it would cost
$109,141,000 to obtain the Panama
concession, while the work dose is
valued at $40,t00.000. The Panama
route is feasible as a sea level
iline, but the Nicaragua route
requires locks for which l.ake Nica
ragua will supply at. inexhaustible
quantity of water for the canal.
There are do natural harbors on the
Nicaragua terminals, but harbors
may be constructed. The Pacama
route has harbors at each end. They
estimate the Nicaragua canal can be
completed in six years, while it will
require ten years to complete . the
Panama. The Nicaragua route save
one to two days to vessels goicg to
the Pacific. It is better for sailing
vessels and has better hygienic con
ditions. Closed for Lack of Fuel.
Pittsburg, Pa., Dec. 4 -The Steel

the same reason.
