A Pathetic Reminder of the Death of
the Young Officer.
A pathetic lemlnder of the recent
death of rirst Lieutenant Isaac Iirown
of fdmpnny IC, was received yestor
tlay by (.'aptaln P. 1!. Atherton, adju
tant of the Thirteenth regiment. The
1'ito ottlcor was elected llrst lieuten
ant only a few weeks ago, and when
Captain Atherton opened bis mall yes
terday mottling ho lound In It tho
commission of Lieutenant Urovvn.

Plenty of Itoom in Federnl Bulldlnf
to Accommodate New Couit.
It Is not anticipated that any very
great changes will have to bo made
at tho local government building to
uooommodate the olllceis for the new
Kedaral court for the now district
which has just boon created by congress.
There are sufllelent looms on tno sec
ond floor at present. It Is believed, to
accommodate the olllcars of tho court,
who may come from this city and who
may accordingly desire to establish a
permanent headquarters in the local
government building. If there shall bo
a, lack of room on the second floor
there are several rooms on the third
now used as storerooms for tho In
ternal levonue department, which
might be utilized.
