The Successful Sub-marine Boat Built Recently at Baltimore. Constructed for Exploring Ma rine Depths and Getting Sunken Treasure. Similar Boat Being Built for The United States, for Torpedo Work. Washington, Deo. 25: In his latest story, culled "The Great Stone of Sard is," Praok Stockton tells of an extraor dinary steamship which was invented by his hero to be used in a voyage to the north pole. It was so constructed that it could be submerged any given depth into the sea. Fresh air was famished to theooouDants on the same principle that a fish breathes through his gills. The voy age was successfully made with a crew of several men and one woman, the ves sel passing under the ice and reaching the open polar sea. That extAordinary boat has a parallel in the Argonaut,which was recently con structed by the Columbian Iron works of Baltimore. It was launched Aug. 19, and made a successful trial trip a few days ago. This vessel was invented by Mr. J. C. Lake, and it is so arranged that it can sail under the water at any depth required as long as the oaptain de sires. The trial trip was made with a party of friends numbering about twenty Most of the time the vessel was run at the rate of five knots, with her upper deck from eighteen to twenty-two feet below the surface of the water. The hall may be lowered or lifted according to the will of thepaptain by receiving or disouargiug water ballast. The iru mediate object of the construction of this strange craft is to search for wrecked hulls at the bottom of the sea along the Atlantio coast. She has already gone for an exploration of the hull of the New Era, which was lost off Asbury Park in 1854, and is known to have 830,000 in bullion aboard. There are several other submerged wrecks along the New Jersey and Delaware coasts which are supposed to contain money, and M. .Lake proposes to search for them fo his own benefit. The great advantage of the boat for such business— and it is equally valuable as a torpedo boat or a torpedo catcher—is that the captain will be entirely inde pendent of tenders on the surface. She can be sunk to a depth of fifteen or twenty fathoms and anchored or made fast alongside a suukeD hull and remain there indefinitely, while thecrew in diving saits can search for treasure or place or remove torpedoes. Fresh air is furnished at the rate of several million cubic feet an hour by ingenvis machinery, which extracts it from the water and oompres ses it into steel tubes and reservoirs. The construction and operations of this boat have been studied with great care and interest by naval architects, as it is the first of the kind to be built outside of the novels of Jules Verne and Frank Stockton. The Columbian Iron company of Balti more, which built the Argonaut, now has under construction for the United States navy a similar vessel, the Plunder, to be used for placing and removing torpedoes and similar submerged work. She is built of steel, eighty-five feet long, and for surface sailing has twin screws driven by triple expansion engines that will carry her fifteen knots an hour. While under the water she will be propelled by a single screw, driven by storage batter ies, and will be able to maintain a speed of eight knots an hour for six consecu tive hours. Air is furnished for her crew by condensers and storage reservoirs. While this sort of vessel only appeared in the realms of wildest fiction a few years ago, and most of tbe readers of Mr. Stockton's story will consider the feat a?c«mplisbed by his expedition a preposterous impossibility, nevertheless a submerged cruiser is considered prac tical by naval architects and engineers, although it must be said that it has not passed beyond the experimental state.— Chicago Record Washington correspond ent. By Decoy Letters. Fargo and St. Paul police profess to believe that tbe man, Jno. Lanterman now in a St. Paul jail,is one of the Moor head train robbers. Lanterman was located in a small town in North Dakota By a series of decoy letters he was induced to return to Fargo, where the original plot was batohed. Here he was closely watched. From Fargo he was decoyed to Moor head, where he was arrested by tbe local police. While in Fargo, Lanterman worked it, a hotel as a blind, and familiarized biiu Belf with the situation. He engaged Fargo and Moorhead local talent, who weakened at the last moment. Their arrest is now assured. Big Fee in Prospect. The Fessenden Advertiser says tbat a contract was made between the county board and Attorney J. E. Robinson of Fargo where by the latter is to get 50 per cent of all taxes collected by him in litigation from th# Northern Pacific road. The sum of $80,000 is said to baa probable amount of the company tax involved io tbe suit now pending before the supreme oonrt. If the above is true tbe Fargo lawyer will make a neat fee. 1 '£i'f 1 v".. -V 1'JM. ASSAILS CHURCH SOCIALS ChlcnKu llvnoici'll'l Caimca Cuiumo* (ion nt licnanec. Not for years, have religious circles at Kowunee, 111., been so agitated as they were the other day because of an address delivered in the M. E. church by Evangelist Liudfield, of Chicago. Church suvialsund entertainments have been given by the religious organiza tions of the city, so many, in fact, that the evangelistic services held by Mr., Linil field have not been well attended. In the pulpit he took clippings from the local newspapers giving the reports of such socials and read them aloud to tbe congregation, after which he made most scathing remarks about the Christianity which tolerated them. In the newspaper reports there were the names of many prominent ladies of the various churches, and their sincerity was questioned by the speaker, with the result that the address has aroused much feeling and antagonism. "When a real Christian wishes to give 25 cents to the cause of the Lord," ••Id Mr. Lindfleld, "he has no right to demand that an oyster supper be thrown in. The church social and kin dred entertainments are only* means of extorting money from unwillingpeo ple, and I put them in a class with the saloon and the gambling den. They are a form of robbery, and the church which accepts money from such sources Is full of the works of the devil." Especially bitter was the speaker against a Klondike social to be given the coming week at one of the large churches, and he openly ridiculed the promoters, who are among the most prominent people of the city.

We show our best manners in shops, in hotels, in crowds, as well as in the most unusual circumstances of society, declares a writer in the New Orleans ficayonie. Haw few of us show amy real courtesy to shop assistants, who yet have to maintain a smiling-faceand an unruffled demeanor, insulted aa they may be half a dozen times a day. We march in with the air of conquerors annexing all that pleases our fancy. We make our desires known with short. sharp words of command, with never 0 "please" to soften tne verbal asperitv we affect. We toss things about the counter with disdain that expresses itself as acrimoniously as if colors and patterns were moral offenses which gave us righteous cause for anger. We give all the trouble we can, with out a thought as to the time to be em ployed in putting awav the failures we so contemptuously discard, and then we stalk out of tbe shop, where we have not expended a shilling, and we carry our heads as if we were the in jured party, not they—those poor 6ntibbed and badgered shop assistants. This is no fancy portrait. We can see it realized in good substantial flesh and blood any day we like to go into a large shop and watch the throng passing to and fro. Whether it be from pride, or shyness, or downright boorishness, it is none the less reprehensible, and he would be a true benefactor to his coun try who should substitute for our pres ent bearing something more gracious and more genial, more courteous and more considerate. IRON DISSOLVED BY WATER. Flald Con til In I as More It LLfa posed to the air ferric oxide separated, and^S°da |1t was Carbonic Aeld Than lilme Does tbe Work. Some interesting experiment® and re searches into tbe ability of water to ex ercise a destructive influence on iron pipe, which have recently been made in Europe, have yielded results not gen erally expected, reports the Philadel phia Record. It has been ascertained that waters containing Tittle lime, but an appreciable quantity of dis solved carbonic acid, were observed to exercise a solvent action upon the iron, and the course of the action was traced. A known quantity of iron filings was placed in each of three vessels, which were respectively filled with ordinary river water, and the same waiter after carbonic acid has passed through it for few minutes, and after the addition of sufficient lime to just neutralize the carbonic acid. The vessels were sealed by mercury from contact by the air, and after the lapse of a certain time the Iron dissolved in each case was deter mined. In the first ease the water had dissolved about 0.0003 per cent. in the second, 0.02 per cent., while in the third only traces of iron could be discerned. The water in the second caae was clear, but on standing ex- therefore inferred that waters containing carbonic acid and very Uttle lime dissolved iron as ferrous carbon ate. Tbe latter is then decomposed by the oxygen of tbe air, and ferric oxide It deposited and carbonic acid formed. Tbe latter can again attack the iron, and thus water containing little car bonic acid may have a powerful ac tion upon Iron plpea. net try luc. oo* ot o»eoar*te,tbe fin I «t liver and bowel regulator ever mad*. •A 7 W WEALTH IN THE VATICAN. The Papal Residence Full of Costly Treasure Wanted l»y Anarchists. Dispatches from Rome eay that the prevailing bHrd times Htid misery in Italy, seen uot only among the poorer class but niuoDi! the impoverished uris tocraoy, have greatly increased the num ber of Italian socialists, and added Io tbe anarohists some powerful and des perate leaders. Tbe taxes are higher than ever under tbe new ministry, and popular discontent is rising. The police claim there has been a steady stream of arrivals of suspicious strangers nt Rome for some time, and tbe belief is that they are not political opponents of tbe new cabinet, but bave designs upon tbe treasure of the Vatican. These arrivals are from Spain, Germany and Austria where the sooialist movement is growing fast. There is no place in the world, not even Klondyke, where jewelB and pre cious metals are gathered together in such enormous quantities and in so re latively amall a space as in the Vatican. During a period ot six centuries, and possibly for several hundred years pre viously, tbe popes have been accumu lating gold, gems and treasures of every conceivable character,tbe present pontiff alone having received in 1888. on the oc casion his jublee, offerings mostly iu gold,silver and jewels and coined money, to tbe extent ot $20.000,000. Scarcely a prelate visits tbis city without bringing offerings of gold from his diocese, tbe most magnificent gifts of this kind com ing from tbe new world. When it is re membered that this has been going on not merely during the reign of tbe present pontiff, but throughout thosn of biB many predecessors, it will readily be realized to what an extent the ten acres of land occupied by the Vatican are crowded with treasures vast beyoud the dreams even of a Monte Gristo. Naturally they excite tbe cupidity of those step-children of fortune who. ren dered desperate to tbe point of madness, by the sense of tbeir own want snd misery ns compared with the wealth and luxury of the will-to-do, constitute the most untiring and bitter enemies of luxury and great wealth.

Postmaster's Compensation Cannot Taxed by State or Municipality- The issue as to whether a state or municipality can levy an income tax on the salary or compensation of a post master, a subject of broad interest to the federal service generally, was de cided/ in an opinion rendered by Acting Assistant Attorney-Oeneral Harrison J. Barrett for the poet office depart ment. The case arose on an inquiry from the postmaster at Gastonia, N. C. It held that a state has no authority to tax the emoluments paid.- to any officers or agents which the United States may use and employ as necessary and proper means to execute its sovereign power. Mr. Barrett says: "Tbe government of the United States is supreme witlhin its sphere of action and any act of state or municipality which attempts to tax the emoluments paid to the officers of the government JS unconstitutional and void. If the powers existed in a state to tax the officers or agents of the government It could thereby impair the power of the United State® in the execution of its sovereignty. The postmaster at Gastonia, therefore, cannot be required to pay a tax upon the income of his office, either to the state of North Caro lina or to the municipality of Gastonia." WARSHIPS AS CLUB HOUSES Practice of Loaning Them to Naval Mllltla la Denounced. In a report to Assistant Secretary of the Navy Roosevelt on the naval militia. Commodore Francis Dickins, assistant chief of the bureau of navigation, de nounces the practice of loaning war ships for militia cruise in summer. "The natural consequences," he says, "has been that the training of the of ficers and men of our national vessels and fleet maneuvers have been seriously interefered with, just at a time when they should be engaged in those drills off our coast, as that season furnishes the best weather for maneuvering.' He points out that naval militia's prac tical value in war will be in coast de fense work. As such it is really apart of the military, and its drills should be in alliance with tlie army, not the navy. "The vessels," he says, "bave been more or less used as clubhouses for the naval militia. I would suggest that their training be confined to such work along the coast as I have indicated. I. would also recommend that each state maintaining naval militia battliona erect an armory on ahore, where boat* and equipments of all kinds shall he kept" J. A.
