GEN. CLARKSON IN THE CITY.
The Noted Republican Warmly Greeted. Hlf on Silver and National • Politics. Member! or ni« Party and Resident* Fnii,i Bis State Give Him a Pleas ant Grueling—lncidents of His Reception. Yeaterday afternoon at 1:40 o'clock there arrived in thia city from Santa Barbara one of the moat "widely-known Republicans in the country, and who registered at the Weetminster hotel Bitnply as J. S. Clarkson of lowa. His arrival was not signalized by any special or elaborate reception, but a number of tbe leading local Republicans and lowa people welcomed him to Los In the morning Hervey Lindley and Judge V.. H. Lamme proceeded to Sau gus, expecting to meet the distinguished Republican on the incoming San Fran cisco train, but when it arrived they discovered that Mr. Clarfcson wbb not on board, and so returned to tbe city. Upon tbe arrival of the Santa Barbara train at the San Fernando depot in Los Arigeleß the cars were boarded by Dr. Cochran, Dr. Maynard and Judge Lamme, who paid their respects to Gen eral Olarkson. At the Arcade depot they were met by another committee, composed of some of the members of the Union league and some lowans. Tbis committee was as follows: Hon. B. F. Allen, Hon. J. Q. Tufts. Col. A. B. Neidig, John Beckwith, F. J. Oressey, S. V. Lants, C. L. Byam. The party was escorted to the West minster hotel and were at once shown to their apartments. Besides General Clarkson his party consists of Major Isaac Trumbo of San Francisco, a prominent California Re publican, Mr. Clarkson's son, C. F. Clarkson, a member of the senior class of Harvard, and Mr. Wm. E. Hills, a young lawyer of New York. After lunch General Clarkson held an informal levee nntil late in the after noon. His apartments were crowded continually by personal friends, prom inent Republicans and a goodly number of lowans. To all General Clarkson gave a hearty welcome. He is not unlike tbe political cartoons wherein he is pictured, garbed as the chief and blood-thirsty herdsman; the only exception,however, being tbat hia features aro not so feroci ous as pictured. He is rather a short man and is stout. He appears to be enjoying excellent health. The most noticable characteristic of the man is his wide-awake air and hiß general alertness npon all top ics. There is something decisive about him which immediately impresses those about him that he understands what be is about and proposes to sea it through. His manners are those of a western man, hia conversation is easy and his general'demeanor is perfectly natural. A Herald reporter called upon Gen eral Clarkson at the Westminster hotel in the afternoon but found him busily engaged in receiving callers. He ex pressed himself ac being well pleased with bis trip and thia section thus far. "I am charmed with your country. This being my first visit to Southern California. I have been in the northern part of the state several times and had always thought tnat I would prefer to visit the aouthern section during tbe , winter. However, when I found myself in San Franciaco this time, I decided to come on and take a ahort view of the country. It ia my desire this section and devote more tirno to .tho "To eastern persons it is certainly a hot house wonder. When corn and orange blossoms are Eeen flourishing Bide by side, and where the lemon and fig and all of your other fruits thrive, it certainly shows a country with many rones. "I am traveling entirely for my own private recreation. The impression that prevails that lam touring ror tbe purpose of forming Republican cluba or working in politics ia incorrect. lam no longer president of the Republican national committee, and my preaent trip ia in no wiae connected with its in terests." In speaking of national affairs General Clarkson etated that at present the Democratic party had no definite pro gramme. President Cleveland thought tbat he bad, but did not know whether it would be followed by congreee. The silver men insist upon a satisfactory substitute in case of the repeal of Uie Sherman silver act, but it is doubtful, however, if the extreme silver men can advance any proposition that will be passed. The general desire is to get bullion into circulation, and tbe plan may comprehend that followed by the French in withdrawing bills and making an issue of email ailver coin below 20 franco, and in the case of this country about $5. The $5 plan would add about $200, --000,000 to the circulation. Silver ia not a western question, but is one that affects the whole country. However, the tariff has had more to do witn the present general depression than silver. The future ia full of hope for the Repub lican party. Mr. Clarkson, however, thought that now waa the time to refrain from giving any extended expression upon national affaire. Shortly after 4 o'clock the party were driven about the city by Dr. Cochran and Judge Gordon. THE RECEPTION. In the evening General Clarkson wae entertained by tbe Union League, tbe principal Republican organization of the county. The large assembly room was decor ated with flagß and palm leaves. • Over the back of tbe platform waa arranged the national colore in excellent design, while tbe front of tbe stage wbb hidden with a profusion of potted plants. The room waa crowded with members of the organization and its guests, the gathering comprizing the representative Republicans of tbe city. Shortly after 8 o'clock, Judge M. T. Owens, who presided, introduced in a few remarks tbe gueet of tbe evening, General Clarkaon. He was warmly re ceived and proceeded to address the au dience. _ He did not enter into any de tailed discussion of the varioua issues, but gave a brief, running talk; highly laudatory to the Republican party and Itrongly against the administration. He first paid a high tribute to Cali fornia and to ita people, both lor their love of their atate and for their love oi country. In referring to tbe sentiments of James G. Blame towarda this atate the apeaker deacribed them as being of the most kindly charaoter. When the trouble with Chile arose Mr. Blame's .first thought was for tbe safety of San Francisco and the Pacitic coaat. It bad long been Mr. Blame's wiab daring hia latter yeara to viait thia section. Referring to the present condition of the country General Clarkaon said that tbe cauae of all the abutting down of factoriea, cloaing of mines, panica in banka and general demoralization of trade waa due to 'uncertain knowl edge rb to wbat action the Democrats would take towards the tariff and other vital issues. The only way to relieve the present demoralization waa to return tbe Repub lican party to power In 180(3, and a good move towarda this would be for Oaiifor nianß to vote together and send a solid Republican delegation to congress next year. The speaker thought that con servative Democratß would also vote with tbe Republicans in reatoring the protective tarl 11° and relieving the prea ent poor condition of the country. At the conclusion of General Clark son's remarks he was heartily applauded, and, upon motion of Dr. MacGowan, the audience arose and gave him three cheers. Judge Owene then called npon Mr. James McLachlan, as one of the young Republicans, to speak. Mr. McLachlan delivered a few remarks scoring the Democratic and extolling the Republican party. Mr. J. A. Donnell was called for as one of the old Republicans. - He spoke for a few minutes. A Bhort flowery talk by Major Isaac Trumbo of San Francisco followed, and General Clarkson's party closed the speech making of tbe evening. The meeting then resolvotj itself into an in formal gathering, the varioua gentle men present being introduced to Gen eral Clarkson. Refreshments, were alao served. , Today Dr. Cochran and a number of invited frienda will eacort the party over Prof. Lowe'a mountain railroad to Hotel Rubio, returning to Pasadena in the afternoon, and tomorrow the committee of lowans will take the party on a trip to Santa Monica and the Soldiers' home, and poßaibly to Redondo. THE CITY BANK. RRCRIVKK BHO DTI! KG X FILES HIS FIRST RtSPORT YHBTKBDAY. He Show* a Not Very nappy Condition or Matters— M r. Chlldre** Ha* Done All ln Hl* lii iv c r to Make the. Depositors Secure. Mr. Otto Brodtbeek, receiver of The City bank, filed his preliminary report late last evening. It is accompanied by schedules giving aH details as to each item of assets and liabilitiea. The re port ia not intended us an appraisment of tbe assets, but in all cases the receiver baa indicated the value of the securities where his information justifies it. The report aleo containa a Hat of property which has been conveyed to the receiver by Mr. Childreaa and others connected with the bank aa additional security. The total assets are placed at $263, --524.21 of which amount $172,111.14 are claesed as worthless or donbtfnl. To secure this last amount the property conveyed to the receiver may realize in two or three years time $80,000. Tbe remainder of the assets, claesed as good or not classed, amounta to $91,413. It is evident that under the moat fa vorable circumatancea nothing more than claims oi depositors can be paid, and that result will depend largely upon the expected advance in the priceof real estate iv this and San Diegocounties, as also upon tha result fjnf \tigation in which the title to'some ol the property is involved.

The Advent*** of HaaatrWßK* at Santa Friday night a number of Loa Angelea high rollers, who not only are leaders in sporting circles but also in the political world and prominent in the Seventh ward, and who have made and unmade many public officiate, concluded that they would go to Santa Monica and en joy the ocean ozone (that ia what they call it there). After visiting their frienda, luxuriating in the enrf and par taking of one of Eckert & Hopf's fish dinners they went to tbe beach and spun yarns about politica, etc., until the music of the waves had no further charms for them and they concluded to retire. They hied them to the Jackeon house, concluding that only tbe best was good enough lor them, and finally suc ceeded in reaching tbe office, which was vacant, tbe night clerk evidently having left duty to Bee hia beat girl. Not find, ing anyone, they rang the fire alarm, which speedily brought the entire household* to the office, and they presented the appearance, of the famous Mother (loose melody, some in rage, aome with bags and some with velvet gowns.

Yesterday's Session of the School at Long Beach. The Addresses and Music Found to Be Very Attractive. The Cooking School—Nr. Sillier* I,re turn-Lent Kvenlng'a Concert—A Number or Religious Service* Arranged ror Today. Tbe Chautauquana at Long Beacb and the many visitors there enjoyed one of the best programme's yesterday that has been given during the assembly. A par-, ticuiarly interesting and instructive ses sion was held when tbe star entertainers of the assembly took part. Tbe attend ance is gradually increasing. HORNING SESSION. The morning session was opened witb devotional services, led by the Rev. A. J. Frost. At 9 o'clock the normal Bible class resumed its studies, under the direction of Dr. Charles Kent. Tbe sub ject was Micah, the Countryman. Dr. Kent is winning much admiration for bis ability in the teaching of the scriptures. The remainder of the morning was taken np by the various departments, which met in their respective places, pursuing the studies taken up on tbe opening day. TUB COOKERY SCHOOL. Probably tbe most enthusiastic, and one of the most important departments of the assembly is the school of cookery. It is indeed an attractive spectacle to witness the students who so earnestly endeavor to learn the mysteries of the culinary art as they should be learned. The menus prepared under the direction of Mies Whlttaker are well worthy of emulation in many a household. The menu to be prepared tomorrow consists of Victoria cornbread, apple rolls, cold meat patties, rough puff pastry, "eggs' nest," and other palatable dishes. This menu will be the perfect delight of the 40 eager culinary students. The other departments have progres sed equally well under their very able leaders. An especial feature of these is the well-drilled chorus in charge of 0. Stewart Taylor. The music is unexcel led. MR. MILLER'S LECTURE. In the afternoon a most interesting lecture waa given by Jahu De Witt Mil ler. His subject was Our Country; Its Possibilities and Ita Perils. As thia wae Mr. Miller's laat lecture the tabernacle was crowded with eager listeners. He prefaced his farewell ad dress by saying that ahould the govern ment fall in the future it will be tbe fault of the people. Thia country ia valuable for what haa been put into it. Note the cost of the late war; to defend an idea it coat the country many mil lions. The war took tbe beat men, phyaical and mental material in the country and coat blood and braine. Three hundred thousand men it cost to maintain one idea —tbe idea of a repub lic. Oar geographical location ia a matter of hopefulness ior tbe future of onr country; we are hopeful on account of our territorial extent; hopeful on ac count of progress. Oar condition now haß put unreat in the breaat of every monarchical nation. We are hopeful on acconnt of progreae; on account of the love of the north for the aoutb, and of tbe south fer the north. Here Mr. Miller attempted a eolntion of the race problem, asking as to what shall be done for the negro. The south will never, he said, accept the black man as a social equal; we cannot live with the colored race on equality, either in the north or south. He favored colonization of the negroes aa tbe only solution of the race problem. Aa to tbe ballot, almost everybody may vote, bnt every voter who leaves home to deposit the ballot should con scientiously realize why, how and for what purpose he disposits the ballot. The peril of our county depends on the manner in which our law is enforced. It should be dealt to <>ach who needs it regardless of sex. In after years will be known by our successors by the work we have done and the history we have made. Following tbe lectnre came tbe ronnd table exercises at 5 o'clock. These were probably tbe most enjoyable oi any dur ing the assembly, and were led by Prof. Josiah Keep, director of conchology study. The afternoon programme was most heartily appreciated. TIIH EVENING CONCERT. A concert was the feature of rtio even ing. It was given under tbe direction of O. Stewart Taylor, ably assisted by Misses Stevens, Fowler, Park, and Mr. James K. Logic. Tbe opening selection was a chorus of 100 voices entitled No Shadows Yonder. The chorus was led by Mr. Taylor. The selection was magnificently sung and eiicited hearty applause. The two bolos, Polly and I and The Daisy, were sung very acceptably by Miss Marie Park, She responded to an encore. Miss Neally Stevens, the noted pian iste, made a decided hit in her inimita ble piano selections. She played The Last Koee of Summer as an encore. The bass soloist, J. K. Logic, sang a selection in such an attractive manner that he was com pelled to respond to applause. He haß a pleasant style and his good voice won bim many admirers. On ti< tbe Field of Glory, a vocal duett by O. Stewart Taylor and J. R. Logic, was one of the best selections of the evening. Misses Fowler and Park and Mr. Tay lor eang a trio entitled Oh ! Memory. The rendition was almost faultless. Caprice Espagnol is the title of a piano selection played by Mies Stevens iv a very artistic manner. The selection was dedicated to Miss Stevens by tbe author, Moezkowski. Mies Nellie Fowler eang a selection from the Holy city. She has a very rich contralto voice, and is one of the best musicians in attendance at tbe assem bly. After a solo by O. Stewart Taylor, a song was rendered by the chorus. This concluded the programme, TODAY'S EXERCISES. The exercises of today will be devoted more particularly to religions services. After the devotional services from 8 to 9 o'clock, Sunday school will be held. The Rev. A. J. Frost oi San Bernardino will preach a sermon at 10:45 o'clock in tbe tabernacle, in which all the services of the day will be held. The vesper service will be conducted by tbe Rev. Chas. Winbigler at 5 o'clock. At 7 o'clock a praise eetvice will be held. Rev. A. W. Lamar, D. D., will preach a 1 ' aermon at 7:30 o'clock. It was the in tention to have a yonng peoples' meet ing in the afternoon, but aa the day is almost wholly occupied by other exer cises, tbe meeting was postponed. An elocutionary and musical enter tainment, consisting of eoloa, duetts and quartettes and piano eelectiona by Misa Neally Stevens,'will be given tomorrow evening. Mr. Taylor will conduct the entertainment. THE COURTS. Case* on Trial Ye*terday—New Suit* filed. Mrs. E. L. Guerin was granted a decree of divorce by Judge Shaw yesterday from her huaband, P. F.

On hearing the evidence, the commissioners discharged the de fendant. B. Ainchimo was arraigned before tbe United States commissioner yesterday on a charge of having herded sheep on government land. His examination waa set for July 29th. THE ANAHEIM DISEASE. A Breaded Vine Pest Bald to Be Again Appearing. A report has come to the viticultural commission that the dreaded Anaheim disease has again appeared in the vicin ity of Anaheim and Loa Angelea, saya the San Franciaco Examiner. Clarence J. Wetmore, the atate viticultural com missioner, ia going down there at once to investigate. The Anaheim dieeaae, so called be cause it first appeared in tbe vicinity of that section, is one of the most destruc tive and at the same time the moat in explicable d ieeaee that has ever appeared in the vineyards of California. It ia eeveral years since it made its appear ance, and then it was at first sup posed to be a bad case of sunburn. The leaves of the vines turned yellow, and then grew brown and withered. The dead leaves dropped off, tbe half-formed grapes drooped and fell to the ground, and in spite of all that the vineyard man could do the vines died by hun dreds. Microscopical examinations re vealed nothing. All the teata tbe agri cultural chemiat could apply revealed nothing, and for two seasons the disease raged practically unchecked. The vines would bud out, grow luxuriantly until midsummer, and then in a few weeks they woHld droop and die. That is all that is known of it to this day, and for want of a better name tbey called it the Anabeim dieeaae. A Frenchman named Viala said re cently that the disease was something analogous to the cabbage blight of Eu rope, a kind of fungoid growtb which is not found here, but thia report was never verified. The report ia causing much uneasiness among the vineyardista iv Loa Angelea county, for the disease spreads almost as rapidly aa phylloxera, and it kills the v ines even more quickly than that pest. The reault of Mr. Wetmore's investiga tions will therefore be watched with the keeneet intereet. Mr. Wetmore haa another mission in bie trip aouth. He will investigate the phylloxera patch diecovered in Orange county last March by Wiufleld Scott, secretary of the viticultural commission. Stringent means were taken te stamp out and prevent the spread of the pest, and Mr. Wetmore will Bee to what de gree of aucceaa they have arrived. RECKLESS DRIVING. Two Men Thrown from a Buggy on Main Street La.l Night. A report came to the police station at 9 o'clock last night that two men and a horse were killed by colliding with a pepper tree near Fifth street. The patrol wagon waß sent out and brought the two supposed dead men to the receiving hospital. On examination by Drs. Ainsworth and MacGowan one man was fonnd to be dead drunk and the other one ditto, with the addition of a severe scalp wound. An eye witness stated that the two men were driving down Fifth Btreet at a reckless rate of speed, and on turning into Main street their cart collided with a pepper tree, throwing both men clear across the road on to tbe opposite sidewalk. The horse disappeared in the dietance and tbe buggy remained in ruins on the street. Both had a fortunate escape from Beri cms Injury, if nothing worae. Tha Concord at Gibraltar. Washisgton, July 22.—The gunboat Concord arrived at Gibraltar today, 18 days from Norfolk. She ia on her way to China aud will probably require two months' time to complete the voyage, if ehe doea not atop at Bangkok. POOR OLD PRINCESS ANGELINE. 'Hie Royal Personage Who Lives in Seattle. The Last Descendant of Seattle, the Indians' Ruler. Souvenir Spoons Hear Her Profile and Her Credit at the Stores Is Qood—Some Traditions or Her Career. Everybody on this side of the water seems te be talking about royalty, dukes, carle, princes and lorda of high degree in general coming over to attend our great fair and our still greater coun try, aays a Seattle correspondent of the New York World. It may, perhape, therefore, be opportune to call attention to an American princeae, a direct de scendant of the forest kings who for so many centuriea roamed undisturbed through the country. Thia princeaa waa born somewhere in the wilda of tbe northwest nearly if not quite 100 years ago. She paddled fearlessly about in the dancing waters of Puget sound, and said her prayers to the snow-capped peaks that crown it, long before moat of the readers of this letter had opened their eyes to the light of an eastern dawn. It ia safe to conjecture that nine out of every ten persons visiting this city will become interested in "Angeline" and her history. It could hardly be otherwise, when ber pictures are dis played through the town in every mer chant's window. She is photographed in all sorts af attitudes, in all sizes, upon every conceivacle object of üße or ornament. Her wrinkled face looks out frou a huge, gaudily-covered lithograph, proclaiming loudly that no tobacco in the world equals this particular brand. It smiles in a particularly modest way from the gold bowls of souvenir Bpoons, the covers of silver match-boxes, bon bonnieres, old coins, etc. In fact, it is impossible to turn in any direction with out being confronted by Angeline inan imate or Angeline in the fleah. For this honored individual is not a peraon ege of the past entirely, but "lives, moves and haa her being" through the atreeta of Beattie today. And what a quaint figure she ia to be aura! Her age—wbo knowe? though all agree that it ia somewhere near the century mark. Princess Angeline'e father wae the last of the great chiefs, and it wae after this warrior tbe Queen City was named. There ia a copied photograph of Chief Seattle to be found in moat book stores, and it shows a kindly face; that of tbe i princess, indeed, being not unlike it. Before he died he wae a friend of the littler band of white settlers that found ita way into the northweat, although it ia not at all by a reflected light that Princeaa Angeline shines. She eeema to be a connecting link between the old daya and the new, and ahe ia much beloved by tbe early aettlera here. Among the many romantic stories told of the princeßs there is one that no living person preeumea to question. It is, indeed, on tbe facts it contains that Angeline'a popularity rests. Thia happened moons and moons ago, when tbe tribes were powerful and the white men but a handful in comparison. An geline'a father had been a friend of the whites, and she resolved to be a friend, too. So, one night when ahe beard the other Indians plotting a maeaacre of all the settlers ere another sun, she stole from her wigmam, running miles and miles to warn the white people of their danger. She thought nothing of her bleeding bare feet and torn banda, nor could boo wait to have them taken care of, but got safely back after giving the warning before sne waa missed. When the attack was made, of course, tbe whitea were prepared, and although the Indiana ware two to one, tbey wore badly defeated. The red men vowed vengence on the head of the one who bad betrayed tbem, but Angeline waa never euspected. Princess Angeline is beloved, too, by her own people. Owing to tbe favors she receives from tbe whites, she is en abled to give them many articles of clothing and provides them with com forts they could not bave but for her. The reeidenta of Seattle were most anx ious to show their appreciation of her servicee, their affection for the daughter of the good old chief, by providing boun tifully fbr her. They would bave built her a small houee, given her enough to live upon and taken the beet of care of her, but tbe old habits were too strong, and she preferred a tent to a cottage, a life among ber own people to the civil ization among strangers. So they finally decided it waa beat to let her have her own way, and they adopted on other means of insuring her against want, succeeding so well that many of your New York swells would be glad of her unlimited credit. She can go into any of the stores and get whatever ahe wantß. It makea no difference how big a bill she runs up, every one ia willing to fill her order. Theae orders are charged to the account of any of\a dozen wealthy men, who, in lieu of being able to help her in any other way, resort to that means. Sometimes the bills are pretty large, and a good share of the pounds of tea, coffee and sugar, sacks of flour, delica cies in the way of cakes and cookies find their way into the tents of those of her own people wbo most need them. The other day the princess's grocery bill was found to contain several charges for cigarettes. Some email boy had prob ably wound himself around her heart, for no one would ever think that an American princess smoked cigarettes. City Coiniuittoeft. Tbe regular meeting of the council supply committee was held yesterday at 2 o'clock. Considerable time was spent in looking over and passing requisitions. No action was taken upon tnem, and nothing of coneequeuce transpired. The finance committee met in tbe city ball yesterday at 10 o'clock, but outside of auditing the customary warrants for salaries, etc., nothing of importance was done. The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum. Used in Millions of Homes— 40 Years the Standard. A HORSE CREMATED. A Model Way of Disposing of Dead An imate. Yesterday at half past 12 o'clock two carriages left the city hall filled with councilmen intent on again visiting the city dumps. The occasion of their vißit this time was to be present at the cremation of a horae, and judge from the methods uaed whether the contractora were in a position to satisfactorily dispose of all dead animals which tbe city would con sign to them. The contractors, Ramieh de Marsh, had on hand a grey horse. The councilmanic party, consisting of President Teed, Messrs. Innes, Rhodes, Pesael, Munson, ex-Councilman Collins, Health Officer Powera, City Clerk Luck enbach and the press representatives ar rived on the ground about 1 o'clock. They were Bhown around the crematory and all ita different appliances explained to them. The carcass of the horse was resting in a dead animal wagon on the upper floor of the building, and when the upper lid of the furnaco was removed it waß swung into a eea of seething flame at exactly 1:25 o'clock. Tbe lid was shut down and the re mains left inside to the mercy of the de vouring element. Nothing extraordinary took place after the body bad been placed within the furnace beyond an ad ditional amount of black smoke from the chimney. There was no smell of burning flesh which could ba noticed. Naturally as the animal was thtown in there was an odor of singed hair, but when the lid sank back into its place all tbat disappeared. The councilmen wandered around and exchanged notes. They became wearied at the monotony and at last proposed that a reporter, or perhaps in lieu, one of the dogs present, be thrown in, to help cremate the horse and help make time. They probably supposed the gasees generated by each would help cre mation. The proposition was, however, overruled and some of the party are still living to tell the tale. So the minutes rolled on. Some of the party, amongst which was Health Officer Powers, strolled out to tbe dumps. They investigated thoroughly, and nowhere could tbey discover an odor. The dumps are in line condition now, having been covered with chloride of lime and are sprinkled with it three times a week, The contractors are wil ling to dig a deep trench and bury this mixed matter, if the council so orders, and cover it up completely with earth. All this time the never-ceasing flames were turning into ashen the carcass of the horse lying in the crematory fur nace. • The time approached, however, for the raising of tbe lid, and exactly at 11 minutes to 2 o'clock the interior of tbe fnrnace was exposed to view. What remained of the horse was simply a mass of blackened matter, which on the touch of a poker subsided into ashes. Ohly tbe bones remained, and tbey were so calcined by the intense heat that they were oi the consistency of chalk. The poor old horse, who day before yesterday was gaily nibbling tips of alfalfa, only remained as a blackened mass of fertilizing matter. The furnace at the city crematory is supplied with an appartus which facilitates the consump tion of all matter thrown into it. Petro leum is used instead of common fuel and tbe oil is forced in at tbe rate of from 60 to 00 gallons a day, according to the amount of garbage and refuse thrown in. The flow from each of the six injectors which at present surround the crema tory is one-sixteenth of an inch in di ameter, and tbe oil is forced into tbe furnace by a pressure of 25 pounds. Tbe draft is so arranged that it oscil lates back and forth, and by this means the burning oil, which enters in the form of a spray, is carried over and through tbe offal desired to be cremated. The conncilmen were entirely eatis fied witb tbe exhibition, and drove off' behind their pair of spanking bays in a great good humor.
