This makes an increase of $4,207 50. lt is prob able the county court will pay no at tention to the demand for the extra money as no way appear for the rais ing of the money. Jury Is Discharged In circuit court yesterday afternoon Judge McRride discharged the petit jurors for the remainder of the term. as there are no more jury trials set. Only a few more cases are expected to arise during the rest of this term, and Judge McBridc stated that he deemed it probable he would be through with the work by Friday. One important matter to arise is the question of the provision in the city charter which demands that each member of the water commission pay at least $25 in city taxes, and this question will arise in the two friendly suits (led last week. On Wednesday Evening The "Constellated Symposium of CIvic-Down-IIaul," or "You-Tickle- Me-And-I'll-Tiekle-You-Club," or the "Merchants' Interchangeable Protec tion Bureau," or the "Lid-Lifters' Life-Saving Service," or the "Wide- Open-Town-Legionaries," or the "DownWilh-All-liarriers' Brigade," or whatsoever the new organization is called, that met last Wednesday evening at the Court House, is due to assemble again at the same place tomorrow night. The church, press and all conservatives, politely barred. The Morning Astorian will give the news, however, though it may be a little late with it. Set a Good Example "Mine Host" Gallagher of the Im perial restaurant, has set an excellent example by tearing down the antide luvian structure from the front of his handsome eating house, .known as the 'awning". It lets in a flood of sun light (when the. sun shines), and in creases the ordinary volumne of light in the establishment about -60 per cent when there is no sun shining; besides adding immensely to the gen eral appearance of the front. It is to be hoped the notion will strike in all along the Commercial street line, including the office of the Morning Astorian; as these dismal and inter fering contrivances were better out and down, than where they are. The day is past for such things as perma nent awnings. Attention Union Men I The Central Labor Council will hold a smoker on Tuesday evening, March 9lh, in Carnahan's Hall, Tenth and Bond streets.

With the large number of additional pupil in the High School the em ployment of another instructor be came a necessity, and while at this season of the year it wis not an easy task to secure a first class teacher, the board believes in Mr. Smith they have secured a good a man as could be desired. He is a graduate of Amherst College, in Connecticut, has had a year or more in Vale, is a graduate of a business course, also, and has practical experience as an in structor. He has been in the State of Washington for a time. Mr. Smith is a young man, Mr. Law la Dead James X. Laws whose serious ill ness wa noted several tnnci recent ly, died at his home early Sunday morning, the primary cause of his death being Bright'! Disease- In the death of Mr. Laws Astoria loses one of its old and very highly re spected citizens, a man who was liked by all and beloved by many. He was only a little over 62 years of age. For a long time he has not been in good health and the past month or two had been in somewhat serious con dition, and several weeks ago a minor operation was performed in the hope of alleviating a part of the difficulty under which he labored. As a busi ness man and citizen Mr.'Laws was known to practically all of the men and women of the city, and he was of a cheerful and friendly nature and of a character that won him many friends. In 1904 he was elected a member of the Oregon legislature, though that was the only public office that he ever aspired to or held. He was a member of the Masons, the Elks and the Eagles, and the funeral today will be held under the auspices of the Elks, from the residence at 1 o'clock this afternoon. Interment will be in Greenwood cemetery. He is survived by Mrs. Laws and one son and one daughter, and a brother and sister residing in Salisbury, Mary land.

NEW YORK, March &-Dr. Alex ander Chessin of Washington Univer sity, St. Louis, gave a demonstration of the principle of the Brennan mono rail car in the physical laboratory at Columbia University yesterday. The model car has all the essential fea tures of the large car, to perfect which the British government has apropri- ated $500,000. The two opposed gyro scopes which give the car its remark able powers of balance are four in ches in diameter and are made of solid steel. . Whfle the gyroscopes revolved af ter having been set in motion at an ! initial speed of 3000 revolutions per minute, Dr. Chessin placed the car on a copper cable stretched across the room and although the center of gravity was three inches above the point of contact, the car maintained its balance perfectly. It successfully balanced more than ten pounds and did not tip until almost two thirds of the entire car's weight was "attach ed to one side. . ' ' It is Mr. Chessin's opinion that the Brennan car has great commercial possibilities and he suggests that a test be made on the New York Sub way. ' Rev. Joseph H. Fesperman, Salis bury, N. C, who is the author of several books, writes: "For several years I was afflicted with kidney trouble and last winter I was sud denly stricken with a severe pain in my kidneys and was confined to bed eight days, unable to get up without assistance. My urine contained a thick sediment and I passed same fre quently day and night. I commenc ed taking Foley's Kidney Remedy, and the pain gradually abated and tinatly ceased and my urine became normal. I cheerfully recommend Foley's Kidney Remedy." T. F. Lau- r Ji, Owl Drug Store.
