Mr. Chandler said he did not know who ordered the stone, as he had recollection of it being dona in open session of the President Lynn said the stone had been ordered more than two mouths ago. He added that the Levy Court did.net k when the prisoners would he removed from the jail to tin* notice had been served upon tin* court.

McKINLEY BEARS UP WELL Canton, Ohio, Sept. 24.—If the past twenty- four hours has brought any change to Mrs. McKinley it is lor the belter. Dr. Rixey always speaks conseivatively of her, taking neither an optimistic nor a pcssi "mistic view of her condition, nor does lie overestimate the slight changes that occur from hour to hour. 1 !e said to-night: "Mrs. Mc Kinlev is bearing up remarkably well. If anything, she is a little bet ter She is gett.ug along just as well as could be expected, and is getting out a little more each day. This statement is taken to be very encouraging_ by friends and relatives. The mere announcement that she is holding her own by the doctors trout time to time has kept Ihe star of hope shining briglitiy; that there is an evidence of improve incut, however slight, is all that they have allowed themselves to expect up to litis time. The usual visit to the tomb was made by Mrs. McKinley, Mrs. Jiarber and Dr. Kixey tui; morning, and this afternoon the most extended drive yet undertaken was made into the country. Mrs. McKinley was about the house more to day than at any time since coming from Washing ton, add showed a livelier intfre .t in the affairs ol her home.

Is it another case of Independeuca over again with the .Shamrock. These questions yachtsmen were asking each other last night. At any rale, the new challenger, wa» leaking so badly last night after she was measured that her crew were forced to redock her in llio Erie basin instead of taking her down the bay, as was originally intended, and a score of men were working on her forward plates and rivets up to a late hour. it was at first stated that the tide was too low for the Shamrock to crosi the sill of the dock, and it was said slie would leave at the next high tide. However, when she was warped over the keel blocks and they begau to empty the dock again Sir Thomai and his friends finally admitted that something was wrong in Denmark. They said; "Some careless work man had not fastened one of Her for ward rivets properly, and that as soon as that was fastened there would ba no more trouble. This may or may not be so, but as a matter of fact, from about 11 o'clock yestorday morning or soon af ter she was floated the Challenger be. gan to make water rapidly, and though her pump was kept steadily going from noon time up to 4 o'clock yes terday afternoon, when she was meas ured, her crew could nut keep hei clear of water. be Designer Watson and Captain Sy. camoro were evidently worried, and after a consultation with Sir Thomai ^ it was decided to redock and plug up the loose rivets. One of the foremost yachtsmen in the country, in discussing the mattei with the writer, said, "I don't care what Sir Thomas Of Designer Watson may say, the Sham rock is badly strained, and It is not so much a missing rivet that is caus ing all this trouble as that her plates are badly warped. "It may be she was strained in com ing across the Atlantic or, what is more probable, the Challenger was badly twisted In that fifty-four knot squall which knocked heron her beam ends on September 12. "Of course, this will not prevent the Shamrock from racing for the cup, but if there is any sea on you can bet your hoots she will open up worse than the Independence ever did. In a smooth sea Mr. Lawson estimated that the Independence car ried something like three tons of water, so you can see what a handi cap the Shamrock will he under If they can't stop her leaking. ' However, high or low water, leak or no leak, the fact remains that the Shamrock did not go down to the Hook last night, as was intended, and instead is high and dry in the _ Erie Basin dry dock, where a score of men are trying to make her Hull waterproof. According to the official measure* nient the .Shamrock shall allow tho Columbia forty-three seconds over a thirty-mile course. GREAT DOSE OF ANTITOXIN.
