The Milwaukee and Rock Inland roads are not letting any grass grow under their feet in the matter of taking advanta age of their victory over Jay Could and the Union Pacific at Omaha. They are after the tourists and commercial travel-' era now wits announcement of the ad1 vantage? of their direct Omaha line. The Milwaukee Is running through direc', and the R'ics I-tland will do so in a few days. Allowing weeds to grow on the road side is reprehensible, and every land owner shoull be required by law to keep his front fr from weeds by frequent mowing. This would induce them to level off and seed down to tbe roadsides to white clover and blue grass, which soon covers this ground and chokes out most weeds in the northwest. On the prairie the roadside weeds are a danger ous nuisance, as they scatter the seeds for long distances, and spoil fields which might other vise be clean. The Herald says that tbe mayor of Du buque has ordered that the unlicensed dogs of that city be electrocuted instead of being barbarously shot. The experi ment has been tried and works admir ably. The machine is set in the vicinity of a lot of digs and kills every unlicen sed dog in the lot but does not injure a licensed one. The licensed dog has a me til tag oc, which acts as a shield and the electricity takes no effect. The ma chine kills t ie dog, skins him and tans the hide in less than a quarter of a sec ond. Verily, it is a great invention If Inepec'or Llcyd can be spared from the Molise avenue paving job long enough he no doubt could find his ser vices useful in seeing that the pavement is properly put down again about the curves which have been laid connecting the Milan line with the Second avenue tracks at Seventeenth street.

WASHiSGToy, Aug. 3. The committee on foreign exhibits of the World's Colum bian exposition have recommended the erection at Jackson park, in Chicago, of an exact reproduction of the old convent of La Rabida at Palos, Spain. This con vent is more closely associated with the life of Columbus than any other building in the world. It was here that he applied for bread and water for his child, and here he was furnished shelter for two years while he was developing his theory of a western passage to the Indies; and it was here that he lived while preparing for the voyage, and in the little chapel at tached to the convent he attended mass on the morning he sailed. W ill Boss the Job for Nothing. It is proposed to make the reproduction exact. It will be of the same dimensions, of similar material, and wherever there is a blemish or a broken tile in the origimil they will be reproduced. The work will be-done under the direction of Mr. Frank lin V. Smith, a wealthy and enthusiastic amateur architect, who lives in the Moor ish villa "Zorayda" at St. Augustine. Fa., during the winter aod in the Pompeitaa villa at Saratoga during the summer. Mr. Smith has had more experience in the reproduction of ancient architecture than any other man, and tenders his services without cost to the exposition.

Secretary Foster has written a letter in answer to one ad dressed him by prominent Hebrews of this city. The latter letter asks that considering that the Jewish residents of this country will take charge of Russian Jews who seek a home m the United States and see that they do not become public charges, the statutes of this country be not so interpeted as to class them with paupers. Secretary Foster, while im pressing upon his correspondents tbe ne cessity of averting an irruption of desti tute aliens, and also of seeing that those who do come be widely distributed so as to supply a real want in scattered comma ties, says he will rely ou his correspond ents' assurance that they will notify their brethren in e-urope of t he statutes affecting them in this country but reminds them that any attempt to stimulate such immi gration would be distincMy hostile to the spirit of their letter.

Dwyer's horse longstreet won the match race Saturd.v and with it (-12,000 for his owner, defeating David T. 1'ulsi fer's Tenny. The weather was cool and pleasant and the tiack iu first-class shape for the race. There were nearly 350,000 persons at the track when the bugle sounded far the race. Tenny was the first to appear for his warming-up gallop, and be pleased the critics immensely. ot so with Longstreet. He sulked at the up per turn, and then there was a great rush into the betting ring to back Tenny. After one break they were sent away with Longstreet nearly a length in front. The Jockey's Use Their Whips. The pair ran in this order, close togeth er, to the quarter, both running under a pull. Lonstreet held his lead to the top of the bill, when "Fikey" Barnes let Tenny out, and the great sway back rapidly closed on the leader. The couple ran head and head for a few striues, when Hamilton went to work on Longstreet and opened up a gap of three lengths, which he held to the mile post. Then Tenny moved up again and Hamilton went to the whip. Lonstreet began to move away under the lasn, when mrnes drew his whip, and once more Tenny gained on Longstreet.

His condition is critical. Baker and An derson live in the same houe, and the shooting was the result of quarreling be tween their wives. Both men drew pis tols when tbey met. Baker's wife was present when the fight took place and her frantic attempts to shield her husband probably had not a little to do with his getting shot. It was while she was strug gling with him that Anderson closed in, and a moment later Mrs. Baker fainted. During the three-handed struggle Baker dropped his pistol, and immediately thereafter Acdeason fired the three shots. He then walked coolly away leaving Baker and his half-crazed wife on the pavement. THE SELECTION OF JOHNSON. Another Witness as to the Republican Convention of 1S34. Xew Haven. Aug. 3. X. D.
