In digging the foundations of tho new county hnll tho London county
council on the south bunk of tho Thames at Westminster has discovered a
relic of Roman days, n long oak b'urge, pressed flat by the weight of Thames
mud nliovo It. When this burge sailed the Thames the river was n pellucid
stream with u clean sandy bottom. Tho barge was cunningly contrived with
u stout keel perhaps Ufty leet long, side ribs set twelve inches apart nnd an
UiBide beam measurement of sixteen feet to eighteen feet. It wns clinker
built, with two inch flanking boards and neatly rouudwl dowl pins holding
everything together. Not a piece of raetnl went to Its making. It was all
flne oak. Its black ribs are bare to the sky, sodden with water and soft to
the touch. The covered portion is still under three feet of compressed Thames
mud, above which ngain are the concrete foundations of the old Crosse &
Blackwell warehouse. So rotten are the black timbers, waterlogged for cen
turies, that preservation Is almost out of the question. In the days when the
bout sunk the stream of the Thames probably touk a couise 100 yards to tu
Btnwurd of its t)i'psuit line.

Colonel Roosevelt Refuses to Com

Oyster Bay, July 28. Colonel
Roosevelt received the news of tho
Ohio contest without a word of com
ment. As soon as the convention
wires flashed the results of the tan

the colonel what had happened. Al
ways a good listener, Mr. Roosovelt
asked for what details were obtain
able and he drank them in without
passing any comment. It was difficult
to tell just how ho felt.
"Well, colonel, what do you think
of it?" came the first question. "1
