JAY P. LUCAS. Register.
Handling of Hail for Veaaela on the
- Detroit River.
A small yacbt-llke white steamer
dances over the swells of the Detroit
River to meet and exchange messages
and salutes with every one of the pass
ing ships a litttle midget servant to
this enormous commerce. Without this
tiny steamer the lake commerce would
be as helpless as we of the cities and
towns ashore would be without the
poiftmaa and the postoffice.
The tremendous advance In shipping
facilities on the Great Lakes In recent
years has been due to tireless Ameri
can enterprise, fostered by generous
appropriations by the government in
aids to navigation; so when the need
of this little messenger presented It
self, the Washington authorities were
not slow In making the experiment
leading to Its adoption.
This method of handling United
States mall Is the only one of Its kind
In existence, and the Idea of a floating
postoffice that successfully delivers
and receives mall to and from ships at
full speed Is only another Illustration
of the wonders and far-reaching bene
fits of onr wideawake postal system.
The books of the United States Treas
ury Department In Washington now
contain the names of nearly 4,000 ships
that constitute UI Great Lakes ma
rine. The fresh-water sailors to whom
this fleet Is Intrusted would, In num
bers, make the population of a large
city. They are, therefore, fairly en
titled to some means of communication
with their homes and families In the
States bordering the lakes, and with
friends far away, and the little white
steamer performs this service as per
fectly as can be desired.
Before the establishment of this de
livery It was difficult to send letters to
any one aboard ship, although Niaga
ra's wall confined the movement of
vessels to the Great Lakes, and their
voyages back and forth were past the
shores of eight States, with a popula
tion of 26,000,000, and their ports of
call Included six cities of over 100,000
population each. This may seem
strange, but it Is raslly explained by
the tact that the greater number of
lake steamers "run wild."

Is one of Jeffrey and Cockburn that
thows In an amusing manner their ludl

The two were engaged upon a case
where the mental caliber of one of the
parties bad to be ascertained, and an
old countryman was put upon the wit
ness stand. Miss Lnnsdale cites the
anecdote In her recent work, "Scotland,
Historic and Romantic."
Jeffrey began: "Is the defendant In
your opinion perfectly sane?"
The man gazed at him in bewilder
ment and made no reply.
"Do you think the defendant capable
of managing his own affairs 7"
Still greater bewilderment on the part
of the witness.
"I ask you." said Jeffrey, speaking
with great particulartly, "do you con
ider the man perfectly rational?"
The man glowered with amazement
scratched bis bead, and remained
"Let me tackle him," said Cockburn,
then adopting bis broadest Scotch.
"Hae ye your mull wl' ye?" said be.
"Ou, ay," answered the witness, and
reached out bis snuff box.
"Noo, boo la tig hae ye' kent John
Sampson?" asked Cockburn, gracefully
taking a pinch.
"Ever since be was that height"
came the answer, readily enough.
"An' dae ye think noo, it ween you
and me," said the advocate Insinuating
ly, "thtt there's ouj thing iutill the crea- j

"I wad na lippen itrustl him wP a .

Renewal of the Drtibund by the
Powers In lu Original r'omt.
Berlin, July 2. The treaty provid
ing for the prolongation of the alliance
between Germany, Austria-Hungary
and Italy (the dreibund) has been
signed in Berlin by the imperial chan
cellor, Count von Bulow ; the Austrian
ambassador, L. von Szogyeny-Marich,
and the Italian ambassador. Count
Lansea di Buses. The alliance wag
renewed in its original form. Upon
the request of the imperial chancellor,
the text of the new driebund treaty will
be kept secret for the present, and it is
not certain whether its publication
will occur later.
The announcement of tl.e signing ot
the dreibund did not cause surprise, as
the renewal had been taken as a fore
gone conclusion since Count von Bulow
was in conference with the Italian and
Austrian ministers during the Easter
holiday. German officials have never
evinced the slightest concern at the
many reports emanating from Paris and
other diplomatic centers reporting the
prospects of a renewal or the dreibund
to be gloomy, and they knew all along
that Italy's flirtation with France was
not intended to bd disloyalty to her
Teutonic allies.
Court Martial Pound General Jacab It. Smith
Gailty of Violating; Rules of War.
Washington, July 2. It is an
nounced by the war department that
the case of General Jacob II. Smith will
not be acted upon before the end of the
present week, at the earliest. Judge
Advocate General Davis, has completed
bis review of the proceedings of the
court martial and the papers are now
in the hands of Secretary Root, who is
so busy with other matters that he has
not yet had time to give the case the
attention it deterves.
It has been generally understood that
General Smith was acquitted by the
court, but it transpires that such was
not the case, the court, it is alleged,
having found General Smith guilty of
violating the rules of war and sen
tenced bim to be reprimanded by the
reviewing authority, which, in this
case, is President Roosevelt. Inas
much as the case is considered strictly
confidential until finally acted upon by
the president, it is impossible to obtain
any official information in regard to it.

vice From New York.
New York, Jnly 2. Actual and pros
pective trade with South Africa has as
sumed such proportions since the term
ination of the Anglo-Boer war that two
steamship companies have inauguiated
service between this city and South
African points. It is the intention of
the agents to maintain a bi-weekly
service. For the last few years the
carrying trade between this port and
South Africa I as been in the hands of
a combination consisting of three lines.

in a reduction of rates.

one of the new lines, "is mainly for
lumber and building materials, for
which cable orders are coming to this
country every day, and also largely for
supplies of grain and agricultural im
plements of all kinds is very large and
is rapidly increasing."
