Washington, April 1!). The .tr
langements for the exhibits of the
state, war and navy department at the
Ifuffalo exposition aie now practically
cr mplete and these three departments
have but little more piepaiation to
make befoie the opening of the blgr
fair on May 1.
Tlie navv's exhibit promises well, on
account of a number of new featur
connected with it. Probably ttho most
inteiesting will be the piesoncc at Buf
falo during the exposition of Naval
Constt ttctor Richmond Pearson Hob
son, whose daring feat of sinking the
Mcrrimao during the Spanish-American
war, as well as his work of rais
ing the disabled Spanish vessels in
Manila harbor, has aroused great In
terest in him throughout the country.
Lieutenant Hobson recently was or
dered to the bureau ol construction and
repair for "special duty." It has been
the desire of those in charge of the
exjositlon to have this young heio of
our war with Spain connected with
the naval exhibit during the summer,
but Admiral Bowles, dblef construc
tion otlicQr, was loath to deplete his al
lcady small bureau force to allow Mr.
Hobson to go to Buffalo. However, he
has now yielded to the popular desire
nnd Mr. Hobson will bo connected with
the navy department's lepresentation
theie. Secretary Iong has authorized
the use of a company of marines, fully
equipped, who will sot up a camp at
the south end of the big government
Secretary TlooL also hos agieed to
send a company of coast artillery
about' sixty men who will set up a
camp neai the mat hies and give daily
exhibition drills. These twx organiz
ations will aim to present in the most
loalistic style the daily lound of work
of their lespectlve bianclies of the
Tlie exhibit of the state department
has been shipped and is now on the
gtound. All th" buieaus of the de
partment will be lepiesented in some

SIGNING OF WARRANTS,
Recorder Moir Explains His Position
with Beference to the Matter.
Other Side of It.
A question that Is Just now ei eating
much discussion and comment in city
hall Is, shall the city wait ants in the
future be drawn in the city eletk's
office ot in the recorders oflice?
liver since 188fi all warrants on llie
city tieasmy have been diavvn and
signed by tlie city cletk and issued
from his office. Tlie ripper bill under
which this city is now operating pro
vides that all wai rants shall be signed
by the recorder but makes no piovisiou
as to who shall eft Aw or Issue them
to the persons entitled to leceive them.
Itecorder Moir while he says that he
has not yet atrived at anv definite ton
elusion nevertheless piactlcally ad
mits that he will not sign any war
lants diavvn by the tilty clerk. The
councllmanic friends of City Cleik Ia
velle who do not like to see htm strip
ped of any of the functlonn of the office,
which he has tilled so long ami so well,
maintain that the lecorder cannot
take upon hismself the power to dtaw
anil issue warrants until the resolution
passed in 18S.1" conferring that power
on Mr. L.avelle 1s repealed. This icso
lutiou tends as follows: N

T3x-Clly Solicitor Vosbtug is autlior
ity for the statement that all tesolu
tions and ordinances passed while
Scranton was a city of the thiid elass,
lomain in foree and binding. Of eomse
tliat pot tion of the lesolutton which
ptovides that the city cleik shall sign
the wataiuts is inconsistent with the
rippei bill but il is held by Mr. T.avelle
that the tost of Ihe lesolution stands
as law until repealed by resolution,
Itecorder Moir when seen yestetd.iv
afternoon by a Tribune man and asked
lor an expireisou of opinion on the
"1 want It undeistood thai ibeie Is
no peisonal feeling in rav contention
that the dtawing and issuing of w.ir

Spectator believes lias not attracted,
thp attention It deserves. f
Admhal Cancvaio In concluding' hli
ntterane'e teg.ndlng the triple and dual
alliances having given Europe thiity
years of peace, said:
"This fact, would, peiliaps, lead Ku
lopean nations to consider tlie possi
bility and necessitv of uniting against
America, Africa and Asia, as the fu
tuto of clvilis-ation will icquire itiem
The Spectatoi does not consider this
the nash outburst en the "man in tlie
stieet," for Admit al Canevato has been
Italian minister of foreign' affairs.
"His, utterance." the Spectator will
say, "coi responds exactly with that ot
Count Coluchowski (Austro-Huiigar-ian
foreign minister) and with alt the
lecent trend of affnlts. The annoyance)
of the continent with America, which
is veiy deep, is based upon three rea
sons, the first being the dread, or rath
er the conviction, that competition
with America is neatly Impossible, her
wealth aim eneigy being too great.
Both aie employed, the Spectator
thinks, to monopolize trade and so to
contiol in the end all the wealth of
the world, an idea not without advo
cates even among ourselves."
