DENVER Col Nov 24 A co-opera-tie
colony for consumptives planned to
be self supporting In which patients in
the first stages of the disease can livo
In tents and work outdoors in the dry
health Firing air of Colorado has made
a start In a ten acre tract of frjit land
near Darnum It Is backed by several
men prominent In business in this city
and about twenty physicians of hish
standing are watching the experiment
with interest
If It is a success the colony will oho
the biggest problem that the sanitariums
of this State hae to face and it will
probably save the lives of thousands of
men from all over the country who dis
cocr the disease while it is still In an
Incipient stage but cannot afford to come
lo Colorado and remain here In idleness
Iiiiiplnj mrnt the Problem
The great problem with the majority
of consumptives who tome here is how to
stay in Colorado and to support them
selves by some healthful occupation dur
ing the long period In which the wasted
lung tissues are repairing In the moun
tain air
Hundreds come here each year effect
a partial cure and then because their
money has given out und they cannot
uffxrd to live any longer without work
ing return to their old homes and un
fcealthful occupntiens only to succumb to
the disease In a tew months Hundreds
more go to work here in offices and stores
with the result that they derive little
benefit from their change of home and
only succeed In deaving the end for a
little while
Tor these two classes of patients the
colony is founded It has been Incorpo
rat d as the Rocky Mountain Independent
Sanitarium Its present quarters are
oniv temporary Thty would not give the
colony a chance to expand and the dream
of its directors is to see it occupying
about 2000 acres self supportinc and in
dependent of outside labor
Chnrlty ot the Ilasli
It is not a charitable institution nor is
It a money making concern Its constitu
tion is framed with a view to prevent it
from becoming the latter
It has been started and got under way
- by a few local business men as their con-
trlbution toward solving the tuberculosis
problem and their idea Is simply to help
consumptives to help themselves
Onl patients who can do outdoor work
or have money enough to pay for their
r iard for the present and are likely to be
able to join the able bodied workers before
tha money is spent will be accepted at
this time They will have a good medical
treatment but it Is upon the outdoor life
that the principal reliance is placed to ef
fect a cure
To ensure the patients being In the open
air all the lime they will sleep in tent3
nnd will een eat their meals outdoors
This Is the plan followed in the temporary
quarters at Barnum and the results have
be n most satisfactory
Tuciii CoiiHUUiiiti en Tlicrc
There are now about twenty consump
t ts there Among them are a carpenter
and a shoemaker but the majority find
work on the fruit lands which now corn
in se the homes territory
The Institution will stay near Barnum
until next spring Hen It will seek larger
quarters When it Is well established it
Is expected to make it capable of living
entirely by Itself its inmates suppljing
ail its wants The Idea is that men of all
trades will go there and ply their trades
si that the home will not need to buy
n tch of anything but materials
Even in the winter the patients will con
tinue the tent life That is the pivot on
which the whole system hangs
Some of the present patients have been
at the sanitarium for about six weeks and
hey find that their condition has been
very perceptibly Improved by the life
outdoors They say that it Is uncomfort
able to go Into heated rooms since their
lungs became accustomed to the cold air
War ure the Superintendent

LONG BRANCH Nov 24 The large
three masted ship which was in distress
dent to her rudder went ashore about the
same time as the ship at Long Branch
and was smashed into kindling wood
against the iron pier the pier itself be
ing demolished later by the waves
All of the crew of the tug except the
mate were rescued in the nick of time by
some volunteer life savers The mate
was washed overboard but managed to
swim to the beach
The Flottbek left Plymouth October 3
and had good weather until some hour3
after she passed Barnegat on Saturday
morning When off Barnegat the tug Rob
ert Haddon came up and offered to tow
the ship into New York for 5150 but the
captain refused the offer
Captain Zlngier sajs it began to blow
hard soon after When the wind shifted
to northeast it began to blow a gale The
sails were reefed but when 4 oclock came
the German skipper made up his mind to
accent the offer of the tug Signals were
made which tho Haddon promptly an
swered and then an attempt was made to
put one of the ships hawsers aboard the
tue
The hawser w as too heavy to manage in
the heavy sea and a lighter one was
strung from the tug to tho ship After
half an hours towing in the teeth of the
gale the tugs rud ier was unshipped by
fouling wih a shad pole
Captain Stark signaled that he was dis
abled and Captain Zlngier let go his
anchors About 1030 they began to drag
and the big ship drifted broadside toward
the sho e Captain Zingier as soon as he
saw that the anchors had parted ordered
bombs and red lights to be set off In
setting oie of them off himself it ex
ploded and the captain was severely
burned about the face
The life avlng corps la charge of Cap
tain Mulligan saw her signals of distress
so that whea the ship was about 700 yards
off the beach an attempt was mado to
throw a line across the vessel Finally
on the fourth attempt when the ship was
about 300 yards off shore the life sav
ing crew managed to get a line over the
vessel that those en board could see and
the breeches buay was then quickly rig
ged and all were taken off safely
When the tide receded this morning the
Flottbek was left high and dry on the
sand It Is believed she can be saved
Captain Zingier expects to have wreckers

NEW HOME FOR MONKEYS
Latest Addition tu Iliilldlnci in Acvr
Vorlc Zoo
NEW YORK Nov 21 The latest addi
tion to the buildings In the New York
Zoological Park is the Primates House
which will be completed and ready for the
reception of the animals about December
1 It is tio first of the series of large
buildings for tropical and sub tropical
animals It will undoubtedly be known
as the Monkey House although Its of
ficial crme for the sake of scientific
accuracy will be Primates House In
explanation of thi3 term William D Horn
aday the director of tho park says
Primates is the name of the zoological
order which Includes the apes babooes
monkeys and lemurs Possibly until the
new word becomes well known and estab
lished the building will be popularly
known as the Monkey House Meanwhile
the inscription in cut stone over each
doorvay will serve as a perpetual remind
er that the great apes the gibbons and
the baboons are net monkeys any mora
than horses and burros The comprehen
sive accuracy of primates is worth to the
public all it will cost to bring the word
into general tse
The building like all the others in tho
group is one story high the material
being buff brick grey granite Indiana
limestone grey terra cola red slate and
copper It is 162 feet long and 74 feet
at Its greatest width including the out
aide tages which have a maximum width
of 24 feet
The collection which will be placed In
the houie consists of 103 specimens rep
leseutlng thirty four species For the ac
commodation of these animals and those
which will be added to the collection
there arc cages of various sizes and styles
including one jungle cage arranged to rep
resent a tropical grove
The south hail of the house will be oc
cupied exclusively by the monkeB of the
New World The main hall will be given
over to the baboons monkeys and lemurs
of the Old World The north hall will be
occupied by anthropoid apes orang cu
tanea chimpanzees gibbons and goril
las The ground plan and cage arrange
ment of the Primates House were de
signed by Mr Hornaday In 1S95 and the
aichilcctural work was done by Helns
La Iarge The terra cotta ornaments
winch were modeled after studies mado In
the Zoological Park are by A P Proc
tor The total cost of tho building is

In the current number of the Zoologi
cal Society Bulletin which is a hand
somely illustrated pamphlet devoted to
the intercuts of the society reference is
made to the odious nicknames often ap
plied to the Zoological Park Tho officials
of the park know that it will be a long
time before the public will adopt the
name Primates House for tbo new build
ing but they see no good reason why the
good name New York Zoological Park
should be displaced by such nicknames as
Zoo Zoological Oarden Bronx
Zoological Garden or Bronx Park Zoo
Zoo says the Bulletin Is a term
for small and Inexpensive collections and
despite tho pernicious example of the peo
ple of London no well equipped zoological
gardtn should be called a zoo any more
than a clipper shp should be called a
smack

PHILADELPHIA Pa Nov 24 The
courts of Pennsylvania will soon be called
upon to settle a case which willluive an
Important bearing not only on possible
future litigation but upon public work
of all kinds inasmuch as it will define the
rights of aliens notwithstanding acts of
Assembly and ordinances of councils pro-
vidiug that no laborers but citizens shall
be employed on public work within tho
Commonwealth or city
The question of the unconstitutionality
of these acts has been raised by Eugene
Raymond who as counsel for the city of
Philadelphia to tho use of Joseph MacFar
land assigtee of twenty nine Italian la
borers has brought suit against the Union
Surety ami Guaranty Company the bonds
men of James McLinden who it is
charged defaulted in tho payment of
wages to the aforesaid tvventj nlne Ital
ipn laborers Under the ordinance of
councils when a city contract is entered
into the contractor must execute a penal
bond for each contract respectively that
he will promptly make pajment to all per
sons suppljing him with labor Tho ordi
nance further provides that in case of de
fault in payment for tho said labor or
materials persons wishing to suo for such
default may procure a certified copy of
the contract and bond and shall be au
thorized to bring suit in the name of the
city of Philadelphia for his or their use
That is what has been done in this suit
Demand for Ill me lit Refused
In his statement of the suit filed in
court Mr Raymonds client sets forth
that McLinden v ho had been engaged on
the grading of Stenton Avenue and Wy
oming Avenue having refused payment of
the claims a demand was made on the
surety company which was refused on
the ground that a balance of the funds
appropriated by councils for this work
remained unexpended and should be ap
plied by the citj for the payment of these
claims The defendants also filed an affi
davit of defence in which they set up
mat the assignee nor any
of the assignors had furnished any labor
and materials and that the assignors
were only general laborers that only
citizens of the United States could be
protected by such bond as by the act of
Assembly of 1S93 none but citizen of the
United States were entitled to be cm
plovcd as laborers workmen or contrac
tors upon the work in question
Act of Council Involved
In fact while the defendant alBo claims
that it demanded from the city the money
it then had on hand and which was due
said McLinden to be applied to the pay
ment of said claims and that the city
declined and paid the money to McLin
den the real Interest In the case centres
on the act of Assembly and ordinance of
counciU whereby the assignors or Ital
ian laborers who seek to recover their
wages are barred from collecting Inas
much as they are aliens and not citizens
of the United States In support of this
claim they set forth the art of Assembly
of June 25 1893 which provides that none
but a citizen of the United States shall be
employed on public works provided it
does not apply to work paid for in part
from payment of assessments and which
requires a stipulation in the rontract to
that effect by tho contractor The ordi
nance of councils of December 1696 pro
vides practically the same as the act of
Assembl with an additional clause fix
ing a penalty of to per day for every alien
so employed by a public works contractor
Lawyer Raymond has taken the broad
stand that such defence is invalid Inas
much as such laws while they may have
been well meant are unconstitutional
and In fact have been so declared by the
United States statutes and courts There
fore he has gone into court with a rule
for Judgment for want of a sufficient affi
davit of defence

it may seem the man whowroto the fa
mous Chimmlc redden stories and who
has turned out several novels and plays
recently Is in part responsible for this
new movement of Richmond capital
Edward W Townsend the author and
piajw right has been In the city for a

of tho lirra of Townsend Reed of Chi
cago tho task of looking up oil prospects
in the Old Dominion and organizing a
company to work them
Mr Townsend expects to leave the city
some time next week He came here pri
marily to get a rest Just having finished
a new novel but his brother heard of his
presence in Virginia and being something
of a capitalist himself begged him to
look over the field and buy up a few thou
sand acres of Virginia land where oil was
likely to be fqund
Ileforo I pot into the newspaper busi
ness and Ions befcre I became a novelist
and magazine writer he said I was a
civil engineer You see I have something
real worihy in my past
My brother has been to Richmond and
advised me in fact that there was no
spot on earth where a man could find so
much delightful recreation as here I came
and I am now trying to get down to the
task of writing him a letter a brotherly
letter telling him that he was right He
came here to try to get the franchise for
the electric railroad to Petersburg and got
left But he stayed over for awhile and
has never forgotten Richmond
hen I came ho asked me to look over
the land In southwestern Virginia and I
have done so and wo think there is oil
there We have taken ail the necessary
steps lo form the company here and I
have just turned the matter over to a
lawjer who will see that ever thing is
iione according to the formulas necessary
The company has been formed and we
will develop many acres of Virginia land
Into oil fields Things look very promis

City N J at an uptown hotel on Satur
day nght left Washington yesterday in
charge of a chaperon
He enjoyed but a brief stay at the Cap
ital returning last night to the city of
boarding houses in the land of the mos
quitoes to patrol the boardwalk beside
the bounding billows of t e broad At
lantic
Yesterday morning Lis host sent the
following despatth to the owner of the
canine Charles R Myers Hotel Rudolph
Atlantic City N Just arrived bird
dog wearing collar with your name in
scribed He has no baggage and could not
pay In advance He awaits your pleas
ure
A reply was promptly received which
said- Hold the pup at my expense
Brother will call to conduct him home
Many thanks Charles R Myers
How the dog got here whether he beat
his way on railroad trains whether he
walked or swam is not known He had
no good cause for leaving home no do
mestic troubles or feline embarrassments
to tempt him to abandon his well kept
kennel and run away He left Atlantic
City about three days ago without saying
where he was going or when he would be
back It is surmised that being an ex
pert bird dog he might have pursued a
feathery creature all the way to Wash
ington before capturing his game or giv
ing up the chase
Wagging his caudal extremity In appre
ciation of the favors shown him at the
hotel he left for home on a late train
last nisht
