A I5KIDGE PKOM KNGLA5D TO FEAXCE. rwKITTCr rOB THE IPATCH.J EG EXT experi ments in Leeds, England, appa rently give some new and important information con cerning the treat ment of sewage. The plan of the treatment is to car- KonlTA Iit firi nil riS 'le animal and vegetable matter in pits, using the material so treated to filter and purify the fluid ele ments in the waste. The advantages of this treatment consist ia-the following features: The process of burning rids the solid part of the fluid of its noxious quality, and affords at the same time in the burnt waste an admirable substance through which to filter the contaminated waters. Further more, the ashy material becomes an excel lent manure through the materials which it takes up in the filtering process, and can be delivered to the farmer in shape fit for use in his fields, the water of the waste going forth, it is thought, in a condition free from all poisonous properties. The comparative purity of the water is shown by the fact that fishes will live in it for weeks. It is mnch to be hoped that this treatment of the sewage waste of cities may prove as successful in a large way as it has claimed to have been in the preliminary experiments. Although the modern system of domestic water supply diminishes the dangers which beset towns,'its effect is to contaminate the river system whence the water of other places must be drawn. Even in the case of seaboard towns which dis charge their efflux directly into the sea, it is not easy to escape the evils which the sewage matter brings to the neighboring shores. Thus, in the case of the London system, which 20 years ago was deemed one of the greatest triumphs of ecginecriiig skill, the best authorities now condemn it, for the reason that it is bringing great and apparently irremediable evil upon the coast line district ot the lower Thames. The problem of sewage treatment is more serious in the valley of the Mississippi sys tem of waters than elsewhere in this coun try, for the reason that, during the summer season, even, great streams like the Ohio frequently have but little moTement or vol ume. The towns built about their banks will, as they grow larger and have a better water supply, pour a great tide of filth into the main channels. The effect of this poi soning is already marked in certain seasons of drought throughout the length of the Ohio river, and in anothergeneration it will be necessary to deal with the problem in an effective manner. The great advantage of the system now on trial in Leeds is to be found in the fact that it gives promise of retaining for use on the soil the invaluable elements of fertility which are now poured forth by sewage channels to the rivera and the sea. Refer ence has alreadv been made to the fact that the search for phosphates and other mineral manures has become necessary through the exhaustion of our soils. The reason for this exhaustion is found in the loss of the ex creta of man and domesticated animals. If in the treatment ot the sewage this material can be returned to the agriculturist, we may to a great extent stop the waste which now bids lair in another thousand years to ruin a large part of the tilled fields of the earth. Great as is the store of our mineral manures, that supply probably cannot stand the grow ing Wi upon it for many centuries to come. Tnerefore we see that the sewage problem is not a matter of convenience or of health alone, but one which touches the most per manent interests of man. Cremation's Claims. A recent treatise by Dr. Hugo Erichsen on the cremation of the dead has once again brought the matter under debate, and this time as a serious inquiry. So far,the principal claim which has been made for this sum mary method of disposing of bodies has rested mainly upon sanitary considerations. A few years ago, when it was still common to have cemeteries within the walls of cities, or even to bury the dead beneath floors ot churches, the argument for cremation was stronger than it is at present, when, save in a few European towns and one or two in this country, the burial places have been re moved to sites remote from large centers of population. At present the evils arising from, the decomposition which takes place in our cemeteries are among the least of those which afflict men. J?rom a sanitary point of view it seems hardly worth while to debate the question; at least, until we have remedied the other far greater ills. "Where bodies are placed under five or six feet of earth, there can be little doubt that the surface of our burial places would be, upon the whole, more salubrious for dwell ings than the soil of our cities where the earth is poisoned by sewage waste. . There Is another "aspect of the problem, however. The burial of the dead leads to the construction of costly monuments and to the long continued care of their resting places. The expenditure of money in many of our great cemeteries is mostunreason able, and constitutes a serious tax on the resources ot the people. The capital in- vested in ML Auburn cemetery, near Bos ton, amounts to many million dollars. In the several cemeteries about that city this expenditure has probably exceeded all which has been given to the plant of educa tional and charitable establishments. In the country, as a whole, it is probable that the decoration and care of the burial places exceed in cost the expenditures made for the schools and other public care for the moral and intellectual development of the living. It s, of course, not to be denied that this love for the memory of the dead has a beautiful side. It is linked with all which is best in human kind. Respectable and, indeed, noble as is this sentiment, its com mon method of expression in our burial places is far from being satisfactory. This clinging to the bit of earth which once held the soul of man in a way denies our belief in immortality, and in a measure shuts the way to our better hope. If the process of cremation would serve in any way to separate the love of the living from the mere dust of the dead, it would do a great work for humanity. A Commercial Discovery. Another very human interest is afforded by the recent discovery of a new fiber-giving plant, which promises to be of great com mercial Jmportan6e. The discovery was made upon the shores ot the Caspian se4. The plant is known by the native name of kanatt It is said to grow to the height of ten feet in a summer. A certain Blasken bourg is authority for the statement that the plant yields to a simple treatment a large quantity of silky fiber that can readily be pun into a strong thread, which can be -Meached without lots of strength. The weight of the material to a given . ttrength of fibre is considerablv less than that of hemp. It dyes,resdily, tattnzti wide range of colors. As yet, nothing sat isfactory is .known concerning the yield of fibre per acre, or the cost of it production. From the scanty information now at hand it appears, however, to be a sufficiently promising plant to warrant experiment with in this country. The climate of the Caspian is such that, if the plant is of real value, one may expect it to succeed in the inland parts of the "United States, ewn in northern stations. Figbling Jcc. A large part of the navigable waters of the United States, the great lakes, the northern tributaries of the Mississippi, much of the basin of the St. Lawrence, the bay of St. Lawrence and the northern ports of the United States, suffer great loss from ice obstruction in the winter season. Many efforts have been made to keep the waters open to a later time in the winter, and to open them at an earlier season in the spring by means of extemporized iceboats designed to rend the ice into fragments, and so per mit it to float away by the tide or currents, or at least afford an apportunity for tow boats to drag their barges to their destina tion. Ho thorough-goine experiment in the construction of an ice-breaking ship appears to haTe been made until the steamer known as the St. Ignace was con structed in order to keep open the way be tween the railway system of Northern Michigan and that in the lower psninsula of that State. An earlier experiment for this same purpose was unsuccessful, but the SL Ignace seems to meet the needs. This vessel built, of course, of unusual strength has n well defended propeller worked by ft separate engine in the bow, acting to re inforce the work of the usual propeller in the stern. The statement of the work done by this wonderfnl craft is surprising. "On hpfway to the Straits of Mackinaw, she traversed 250 miles of ice, on the average two feet in depth, but occasionally packed to the depth often feet. Through this a pass age was made without difficulty. A more serious task was encountered in approach ing the wharf at Mackinaw City. Here the ice for a width of 1,000 feet was" packed to a depth ol 20 feet. In the apparently im possible undertaking of breaking through this mass, the vessel appears to have suc ceeded beyond expectation. The front screw broke up the ice, permitting it to be sucked away by the strong current produced by two propellers. The essential novelty ot the ship appears to consist of this double system of propellers, which not only much increases the ramming power of the craft, but serves through the action of the forward screw to break up the ice in a very advantageous manner. There seems reason to hope that navigation may be general in these North ern waters through the use of snch ships for a considerably longer period than hitherto. Tclcernpblne Fhotocrnplif. There have been projects for transmitting photographs by telegraphic methods. If one may trust recent reports, this scheme has attained success and been brought into' practical operation by the French police. Photographs, though of small size and in outline only, appear to serve the purpose for which they are intended, aud fleeing; male factors have been identified by these electrically transmitted photographs. Some years ago plans for a tunnel under the British Channel were put before the public and the vast project would doubtless hare been executed but for tho caution of the Government authorities, who leared the dangers of an invasion through such a road war. Now comes a project, which seems to be well reckoned, for a bridge about 23 miles long from Cape Grisnez to Folkstone. The estimated, cost for a bridge 100 feet wide, with four lines of rails and a carriage way, is 572,000,000. Even if the cost should be several times this amount, it is likely that the traffic would justify the expendi ture. Pkof. N. S. Siialer. MILITARY GOSSIP. Company A, of the Fourteenth, turned out fn full uniform last Sunday afternoon to at tend the funeral of Contain Hill. PBrVATE HOBGAirr of Company A, Four tcentu, was presented with a medal, Ian week, by Captain Schmidt, for his ability in hustling for the company. The attendance at company drills during the past ten days lias been rather slim, as the boys are staying at homo at night and trying to coax the rheumatism out of their bones. TrtK much-postponed election fer Second Lieutenant in Company H will be held at the barracks on Per.n avenue next Tuesday even ins. The successful candidate will probably be Private Lindsay, The Board of Control of the Eighteenth Regiment met last night and audited and paid several bills that were presented. It was more of an experience meeting than anything rise, and talcs of the late unpleasantness were passed around the board. If all the pieces of flag brought back to this city from Washington are parts of the flag President Harrison rested his hand on while taking tho oath of office, as claimed, then the President not only has a remarkably able fist, bnt reclined it on a drygoods store during the ceremony. Tee latest advices from Washington state that the local regiments were encamped at Ben nings' station for two days, and that everything in the vicinity suffered accordingly. At the present rate of increase the future historian will chronicle the fact that tho inauguration of President Harrison was followed by a civil war which lasted for several years. Two weeks ago every guardsman in the city was eager to take in the New York trip next month, but about every second man you meet now is a little dubious on the subject, and thinks private business would prevent nisleav inc just at that time. There is no use talking, the Washington layout was a, soaker, especial ly for the enlisted man, and rather placed a damper on a great deal of military enthusiasm. First Sergeakt James Big gee, of Com pany G, of the Eighteenth, made a heroic dis play of himself by offering Governor Beaver 875 men for the purpose of defending the Stars and Stripes in case of any trouble over Bamoa. The Governor was no donbt highly gratified at the patriotism of Sergeant Blgjrer. but tho lat ter should not have forgotten the fact that in enlisting in the National Guard, he had f nlly covered that point. The Washington Infantry resumed drill last Friday night, with a large attendance present. Captaiu Shannon is going to drill the -men pretty hara this spring, and will then tike a back seat for no company in the State. There 18 some talk of the Washies being the tenth company for the Eighteenth Begiment, but it is mora probable, however, that an en tirely new company will bo recruited, should the reciincnt receive permission. l!f The Washington Centennial Celebration next month, in New York City, the autnonties do not propose to allow the State troops any latitude whatever, but merely want to show the people how the men can conduct them selves as soldiers. They will be brought into tbe city the morning of the parade and Im mediately after it is over will be hustled back to resuective homes. They are to receive the regulation pay allowed for their servioes, and will not be pven anv opportunity to see the elephant that night. It is intended to prevent any shirking by having a strong provost guard patrol the city and any stragglers in uniform will be placed under arrest at once. The subjeot of permanent encampments was pretty thoroughly discussed during the past year by prominent members of tho Na tional Guards in tbe different States. In this line, the report of Inspector General Brandt, of Minnesota, is interesting, Irom the fact that be states: "Our Guard has never had any field practice, and would bo found unprepared should any emenrcpey unexpectedly call it Into active service. The supposed blessing of a permanent camp is our greatest curse. The soldier of luxury is not the soldier for war. Abandon tho permanent camp and put the troops in tho field In tho proper manner." The commissions of three commandants in Second Brigade will expire this year. Colonel Kreps ol the Fifteenth Begiment in August, Colonel Smith of tbe Eighteenth in September, and Captain Hunt of Battery B in May. Colonel Kreps will hare strong opposition for re-election in bis Lieutenant Colonel. William A. Ru pert, ot C onneautvilie- The fight bctwem the two has been growing for some time, and lines have already been drawn, with the chances slicbtly In favor of Rupert, who Is pretty gen. erally liked by tbe officers. In the Eighteenth, Colonel Smith will have everything hta own wav. as his officers would elect him President, if their votes settled tbe matter. Affairs in the Battery will probably be decidedly interesting when tbe proper Time cornea, for while the members of tbe organization are non-committal on tbe subject, It is pretty gcneeally understood that Lieutenant Lew Brown will give Captain Hunt a tussle for tbe two bars. Lieutenant Sheppard has also announced his intention of stepping down and out, ashUT commission ex. plres at the same time. THE A BAID-OH ELECTEIC That Palls the Price pown' a Cool Fivo Dollars a Share. SOME MISTAKES OP CAPITALISTS. A Countryman Learns the Difference Be tween Houses and Farms. fllCKEL MIKING AND DEAD PATENTS The sensation of the week in business cir cles was a break of ?5 a share in Wfesting house Electric stock. Several reasons were offered in explanation .of the depression, tbe most plausible ef which was that the phe- rnomenal advance of the stock induced heavy realizing, with a view of loading up again at the decline. The raid was well organized, made at the right time, and did its work effectively. Friends of the company, how- erer, hare as strong faith as ever in the stock, and say the check it has received is only temporary. Oil closed dull and weak. Iron was firmer, with more inquiry and some good sales. Honey was in better demand and discount rates were firm at 56 per cent. Real estate was active. Forty-nine building permits were Issued, the estimated cost being JOG.OZ. All branches of the retail trade were active. Capitalists are generally safe leadors in busi ness affairs, but tbey sometimes make mis takes. In proof of this a few instances may be given. Eight or nine years ago the English block, on Fourth avenue,the lot having a front ago of 100 feet, was offered at 870,000. Several wealthy gentlemen critically examined tho property and became interested in it, but they lacked the nerve to take it at the price. A -short time afterward tbe figures were raised to $75,000, The same people who had refused to purchase tho property at $70,000 then changed their minds and offered to take it at that price, but the owners stood out for $75,000, and tho deal was broken off. Again' the price was raised, this time to SSO.000, at which tbe property was purchased by the late Thomas Donnelly, of the Fourth National Bank. To day it is valued at 5150,000 to $175,000. Tho property adjoining the English block went a-begging in 1877, at 520,000, but it Anally changed bands at that price. Six years later it was sold for 32,000. Now it is worth every cent of 80,000. It has a frontage of 40 feet. These values were looked upon by capitalists ot that day as exorbitant, but now they are considered to have been very reasonable. Tho properties in question are not in the market, but they wonld readily bring the prices at which they are held. There is moro reason now for ad vances in real estate in the location cited than there was six or eight years ago, when moneyed men were in doubt whether real estate values would go up or down. They haye gone up, not only in tbe old city, but in the newer parts and in the suburbs, and display staying qualities that will keep them, up. Capitalists have learned something in the past few years. They bare a better opinion of real estate, 2nd are putting large amounts of money in It. This makes good, stable values and an active mar ket. A countryman entered the office of a Fourth street real estate agent yesterday afternoon to place a mortgage of $2,000 on his farm in tho upper part ot the county. He expected to get tbe money at 4 or 5 per cent and all expenses paid, but he had to pay 6 in addition to the legal fees. He couldn't understand it. He pointed to an advertisement ot money to loan at 4 per cent. In his explanation the agent said: "That refers to city property, and not to farm land. Capitalists consider city property a gilt-edged investment. It is worth from 53,000 to $5,000 a foot, according to location, is right under their noses, as it were, where it can be examined without trouble and-looked after If necessary, without loss of time or expense. Its value is fixed. It Is always in demand aud can be sold at any time. This gives it a great advantage over conn try property, and is the reason for the difference in rates. Your farm Is worth the money, of course, and more, too, but its dis tance from the city puts the capitalists to con siderable trouble to look after it And then, If the necessity should arise, it could not be turned into cash so readily as city property, as there aro comparatively few who want farms. This is the view capitalists take of the matter, and, of course, we must follow their instruc tions." The nickel industry of the world is a most pe culiar one. It has only been about 60 years since it first camo Into use as a mineral, though it has been known toJapan and the Eastern na tions for centuries. There are nickel mines in France, Germany and Wales, in Pennsylvania, Nevada and Oregon. Nickel is not, as is gen erally supposed, a mineral that is mined like silver and then smelted and reduced from an ore. It is a chemical element which is extract ed from arsenides, cobalt and sulphides. Tbe yield from these substances as found in France and Wales is only about 2 per cent nickel, but the yield of some mines in Nevada, not yet de veloped, is fully SO per cent of pure nickel. . About 80 years ago there wag discovered in New Caledonia, a French penal colony, a won derfully rich deposit of nickel. A French com pany was immediately formed, and this company to-day almost controls tbe trade in this country. It also almost controls tbe nickel trade of the world, and it has frequently de clared its intention to ruin every other nickel manufacturer and run them perpetually out of the business. - Several patents covering devices of more or less Importance to the public expire this week, and may bo appropriated by any one so dis posed.

A raid was made on Westingbouse Electric stock yesterday, and the pj-ice broke from 87K on Tuesday to 52K, a decline of $5 a share. The raid is supposed to bare been the outcome of a well-organized plot on tbe part of its enemies, presumably the Edison clique, to break the stock. A short time ago the public was selling Philadelphia Gas and buyinc Electric. Now tbe situation Is reversed, and Philadelphia has the call. Tbo recent advance in Electric was too great it was phenomenal and, of eourse, it brougbt out the holders of tbe stock to realize. Friends of the company have no fears for the future of the stock. Its reeoTerjr,tney say. is only a question of a little time. Phila- 3j delnhla nas strouc and active. advancinC from 36 to 88 Central Traction was firmer but dull.

Petroleum Continues to Recedo From tho Dollar Line Two Theories. There was a bullish feeling at tbe opening of oil market yesterday, but heavy selling quickly turned the tables. Hilton is reported to have dumped 100.000 barrels. In the last four hours the market was both weak and dull. Tbe in itial quotation SSJi was the top price of the day.- The lowest was 89. The range being of a cent. Various opinions were expressed as to tbe course of the market this week. Some dealers claimed that it was firm at tbe core and would open up on Monday at an advance. Its weakness being attributed to sympathy with the depression in Btocks. Others main tained that it was being manipulated by tbo Standard and was more likely to recede than advance. The evident scarcity of certificates was pointed to as proof of the correctness of the former theory, while the lack of outside support was urged in support of the position of the bears. From the standpoint of an outsider litis as likely to go one way as tho other. As the Indian said to tbe white man the future of the market is very uncertain. Concerning the depression StowelVs Reporter says: The failure of the market to advance, in view of the constant reduction in stocks, is probably due to two causes one. the great production in the Lima field: though this oil is at present comparatively valueless for illumi nating purposes, there Is no doubt that were tho market to advance materially some way would bo found to refine Lima oil so that it could be used for illuminating purposes. The second cause that operates to prevent, ano yance is the holding of the 5,000,000 barrels of oil. It is true that there is an engagement that this shall not be sold at less than SI a barrel, but that means that the market cannot reach $1 without the danger of tho unloading of this oil, and unless some agreement is reached to advance the minimum price at which this oil is to Be sold, some fieure above $1 it is probable that "dollar oil" will not be reached until these 5,000,000 barrels are sold.

The well brought in this, week by the Berea Grit Oil and Gas Com pany, of this place, promises to be abont a ten barrel well. Tbe drill was stopped in top of the sand, and the well was closed in for a few days, awaiting tbe arrival of a tank, consequently wben first opened it made a big showing.whlch accounts for the extravagant telpgrams sent to the daily papers. The tubing is now on the ground and the well will bo finished and put in shape to flow in a few days. In tbe meantimo the company is building a rig for another well a short distance from this one.

During the short session to-day tho market was again active, but a better toco prevailed than yesterday, and some stocks closed higher. London brokers bere bad large selling orders, aud from Chicago there were also heavy orders In the Granger stocks, while tho regular com mission people wore doing almost nothing. The transactions throughout had a most decided professional aspect and the tem per ol the room especially in the early trading was "bearish to a high degree. The opening transactions were mado on a very active mar ket with first prices down all over the list from X to per cent, but while tbe offeiings were large tho local bears and traders took tbe op portunity afforded by the selling by London and Chicago to get in a long line of shorts put out In tbo past few days and the offerings were absorbed sending prices up slightly. When the first demand slacked off, however, there was a decline to fractions below tbe open ing figures, and Cotton Oil and Tennessee Coal displaced marked weakness, the former yield in? 1 per cent. Tho buying began again shortly, however, and was especially noticeable In the Urapgers, all of which mide material advances over their lowest, figures. Rock Island. St. Paul, Atchison and Northwestern were most promlnept, whilo the remainder of the list moved over a fractional range. Phila delphia Gas, however, recorded again of 3 per cent on light trading. The news of the day was not of special im portance and bad little effect upon prices one way or the other. Tbe market finally closed aotive and strong at the best prices of tbo day, after having been onco started. Tbe final changes aro about equally divided between gains and lasses, but are for fractional amounts only except to Pullman, which rose 1 per rent. The railroad bond market was very quiet, the sales of all issues aggrecatlng only $622,000, and the trading was absolutely devoid of feature of Importance.

Chicago A very fair business was trans acted in wheat to-day, and the feoling'was firmer with prices ruling above the closing figures of yesterday. The opening was just a shade easier, but from the start showed firm ness, and with some fluctuations prices for May wero advanced 2c, receded Jc, fluct uated slightly, and closed about lc higher than yesterday. June also showed considerable strength, advancing lc, and closed about ljvc higher. July ruled steady, advancing lc, clos ing aboutc higher than yesterday. Local influences again controlled the market, and tho firmness was attributed mainly to the free buying of a prominent local trader, though at the advance operators found the speculative offerines quite large, whichTcsulted in develop ing a weaker feeling. A fair trade was reported in corn early in tho day, after which the pit became very quiet and inactive. The feeling developed was generally weaker and transactions were at a lower rango of prices. Tbe easier tone was attributed largely to tbe receipts being considerably m excess of expectations. Tbe market opened a shade lower than the closing price of yester day for a time, then declined c, reacted H I4fi and closed c lower than yestorday. L1Y ST0CE MARKETS.
