A. i C, railroad at a point between the
coal dock and the Flavel pier, where she
was received by Captain Oscar Wicklund
of the Fort Canby life-saving station,
who with, his crew of eight, had came
up for the purpose. She is 36 feet long
and Tery heavy looking. She has
thwarts for ten men and uses 14 foot
ash oars, and is generally well equip

just what he expected of her until he
has drilled his crew with her. She was
Bent out here from the Lake Michigan

laden schooner Vriginia. lying at anchor
about 300 fathoms off the company's
pier, yesterday morning, on business,
and went out to her in a small boat
There was a bit of a chop sea playing
up the bay and the frail digny bobbed
around some to the discomfiture of cer
tain of her passengers. It id not known
that Mr. Robert was in any way ef
fected by the motion of the boat or that

Laurin, the Democratic candidate for
Police Commissioner had failed pre

nomination for that office, in other
words, that he declined to run, for rea
sons of hi own. There seemed to I
no doubt about the matter, and it was
of enough moment to put a seriew of in
quiries afoot in relation to it.
City Auditor Anderson, upon being
npealed to made the definite and ex
plicit statement that "all acceptance
hud Wn tiled at his office," and this
certainly must include Mr. Laurin's.
Asked again, in explicit terms a to this
particular afcptance the same answer
was given by the judge, towit, that "all
acceptances had been tiled," and so ru
mor is knocked out.

COURT HOUSE IDEAS

CUT COST FIFTY THOUSAND
Ideas that May Meet With Approval of
Taxpayers and Result in Completion
of New Structure Anything to Awak
en Interest in Big Utility.
A uumher of citizens have lcn talk
ing over the matter of the completion
of the Court House, and after seeing
mimic architects, think that changes
could be made in the materials and the
manner of finishing, so as U reduce the
cost of completion at )cat forty thou
sand dollars; and that the UHslilication
would not change the general plan of
Tlie plan as contracted on, call for

floors to bo tiled, stair scp to be of
tumble, and wainscoting of marble and
hard woods, all teed with a copper
dome. The contract price exclusive of
heating and wiring, to I $ 1 04 .000. Heat

The ornamental terra eotta will cost
WtJ.uOO; the dome (6300; the marble
and tiling, 12, 000, (figures are given in
round numbers) and all of these last
iU nw could be dispensed with, bringing
the cost to complete the structure to
alsMit sixty thousand dollars. Tlie
building ha already coat (43,000, so
the total outlay would be about (100,000
without lighting or furniture.
Perhaps the architects could loii)t out
further changes that would still further
lessen the cost. For instance Salem has

the basement, to be built of New berg

In Time of Peace.
In the first months of the Russian
Japanese war we had a striking ex
ample of the necessity for preparation
and the early advantage of those who, so
to speak, "have shingled their roofs in
dry weather." The virtue of prepara
tion has made history and given to us
our greatest men. The individual as
well as the nation should be prepared
to successfully combat the first cold
you take? A cold ran be cured much
more quickly when treated as soon as
it has been contracted and before it
has become settled in the system.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is famous
for its cures of colds and it should be
kept at hand ready for instant use. For
