only pledges are to carry out legislation
, proposed by its predecessors. It was cer
tain I hat tha new ministry would be asafcd
by the extreme left, but the hostility of
the- right must have been an unpleasant
turpria, as up to the last moment benevo
lent neutrality had been secured on the
part of the Marquis dt Rudinl and bis fol
lowers. The life of the ministry, however.
with Its ample majority, should be safe
until after the summer recess. But much
may happen before November to disturb
that security, and its present majority is
no pledge of Ha continuance. The entrance
of the Di Rudinl group In opposition at
once suggests a possible coalition of the
conservative parties, which may prove more
attractive to the chamber than the. leader
ship of Baron Sonnlno alone. On the other
hand, the extreme 'left may be expected
to make an energetic effort to recapture
the position they have lost in the country,
and It la more than probable that their
agitation will produce its usual crop of
labor troublea and disturbances.

CAIRO, July ". tSpeclal Cablegram to
The Bee.) Many different accounts of the
attack by natives upon British officers in
volving the death of Captain Bull, have
been made. The natives, however, give tha
following account:
The officers, having been invited by a
local notable to shoot pigeons, went for
the purpose, divided Into two parties, one
of three officers and the other of two.
Captain Clarke Bull and another went in
the direction of the threshing floor about
the time the pigeons (which are the prop
erty of the natives) come to feed. Cap
tain Bull shot at a pigeon, whereupon a
native came to disarm him and his com
panion. While thla was being done a gun
went off, hitting a woman on the threshing
floor, which caught fire.
The head native went to the spot to
examine the matter. An officer fired and
hit hm. Thereupon the natives assembled
and attacked the officers with their heavy
staves. The other officers wers also at
tacked. Captain Bull and his companion
being overwhelmed, dropped their arms
and ran across a canal to the place where
the troops were encamped. Captain Bull
fell on the bank of the canal, exhausted
and dying. The head of the hamlet came
to tend him. Another officer crossed the
canal and brought a detachment, who, re
turning, attacked the native, thinking he
was the murderer. They then went to the
scene of the affray, near Densrtaway, and
wished to attack the natives, but an officer
prevented this.

Paris some years ago . went through an
absolute reign of terror. First there wai
the outrage committed by Ravarhol; then
came the terrible explosion In' the police
station in the Rue des Bona Enfant, which
waa followed by the throwing of the bomb
In the chamber by Valllant.' About
couple of weeks later the Belgian anarchist,
Talvels, blew up a hotel keeper In the Rue
Bt. Jacques, and win himself killed ten
day later at the entrance to the Madelelno
church by a bomb which he was endvavsr
ing to place behind the "swing door. Then
came the outrage at the Cafe Terminus,
when Emlle Henry threw hi bomb among
the peaceful cltlsens who were listening to
the orchestra.
It was only natural thnt a aeries of out
rages ahould spread terror in a city like
Paris. Things went so far that the public
prosecutor and the Tarloua examining
magistrate entrusted with the prosecution ot
anarchists were given, notice to vacate by
the landlords of the housea in which they
lived, as they were In receipt of threatening
letters from anarchists', and. an attempt
was made to blow one up. One . Judge

not find a landlord willing to accept him

M. Goron. the famous chief of the Paris
Detective department, hod little confidence
In the power of stamping out anarchism
by means of police - measures. He con

anarchism waa to go to the root of things
by the spread of popular education and the

The waterworks appraisers in session at
Chicago liHe at Inst made an appraise
ment of the Omaha waterworks, fixing Its
value Ht KVtvl.uti. This Information was
received yesteidny by the Water board.
Engineer Alvord. the appraiser, ap
pointed by tho hoard, refuses to concur
either In the appraisement or In the valua
tion nnd lias declined to sln the appraise
nieiil, deeming It too high. Appraisers
Renxonbcrg and Mead both concur In the
above valuation.
It Is believed here, however, that the
apprnlsenient will Ik returned, though It
is an open question whether or not two
of the appraisers can fix the valuation
without the concurrence of the third one.
It Is said to be almost c6ertaln that the
Water board will not give It assent to
a valuation as high as this, and more
litigation probably will result if the re
turn is finally made at this figure.
It Is a question whether the appraisers
will make a return In which only two of
them concur or not, hut It la believed they
will do so, In which case the Water hoard
probably will find it necessary either to
accept the award or go Into court and
have It set aside.
City Engineer Rosen-ater, In an address
mnde several weeks ago before the Im
provement clubs, declared he would not
recommend the acceptance of a valuation
of $,onn,ooo or J7.ooo.ono.
End of Tedious Prooesa.
This appraisement Is the culmination of a
tedious process preliminary to the acquisi
tion by the city under a clause in the
original contract of the company that built
the water works. The plant waa built In
1881 by local capital organised by a man
named Cook. The terms provided that he
should construct the works subject to cer
tain tests and an ordinance was passed
giving him a contract to supply the city
with hydrants for fire-fighting purposes
for a period not to exceed twenty-five yeais.
This ordinance also contained a schedule
of maximum rate to private consumers
to obtain as long as the contract held out.
Another clause In this contrsct provided
for tha clty'a purchase of the plant bv
appraisement of three spprulners, tha valua
Jioii to im exiduaUca, of ibe franch.U. The
city had an option to Institute an appraise
ment after the expiration of twenty year
and before twenty-five years from the ac
ceptance of the worka as completed. The
method of appointing tha appraisers was for
tho city to name one, the water company
one and these two to choose the third.
A serious dispute arose aa to the date
on which the city's option beotme operative.
The works were actually completed In MM.
but were not formally accepted by the city
until 188.1. The company, therefore. Insisted
that the purchase option was not available
until 1903.
brouaht to Head by Bonds.
The question of buying waa brought to a
head In 1900. when the city council sub
mitted a proposition to vote bonds to the
amount of l.t.omi.Ott) for the purchsse of tl
water works. This proposition waa ratified
hy the voters, but the question of the right
to purchsse held the matter In abeyance
until 1908. when the legislature was Induced
to enact a law out of the "water bill,"
which became irather notorious because ot
the vigorous contest over it. This law pro
vided for the purchase by the city, and
the management of the plant after Its put
chase by a water board of six members
originally appointed by the governor and
elected by the people as the terms of the
members expired.
Another obstacle presented itaelf in th
course of the long-drawn-out controversy
in the question whether the city should
effect the purchase under the eauae in
tho contract or by the right of eminent
domain. The latter would give the city
the right to name all the appraisers,
while the former method would enablo
It to name but one, and to accept or re
ject, the appraisement. Just aa it liked.
The purchase clause method waa force-!
upon ths city, and now the city is told
that tha value of the plant it la to buy
is 16.000,000 and more, notwithstanding
only 13,000,000 wss tho amount of tha
bonds voted for the purchase. When tha
city council decided In favor of the pur
chase clause method. Engineer Alyord was
appointed as the city's appraiser. 1hv
water company named Benxenberg anl
these two chose Engineer Mead.
. Dclaya of All Sorts.
This board of appraisers waa suppose I
to go to work at once, hut it fiddled aionj
with all sorts of delays, putting the city
off from time to time with this and thil
exiiuse for Its failure to act.
Tho Water bowrd tried to anticipate
the purchase by repudiating the water
; rate schedule cuutiact and reducing- tha
rales to consumers. This threw the bur
den of vast litigation upon the city, jn
which the city lost. Judge Hunter of
the United States district court decid-al
th'i rMe, as promulaat-d by the Water
board, wore leg.il. They weru 25 cents.
! where the old ratca were 35 cents. But
the company appealed to the United
j States circuit court of appeals, and only
two weeks ago Judge Sanborn of r'l.
' Pal11 hnded down the oecislon of this
! court, which reversed that of the lower
, court. The Water board's attorneva then
1 j , u .1
! declared they would appeal tho case to
the supreme court.
Meanwhile another complication arose
