Doubtless there are hundreds of did soldiers In Hie west who fed a vital Interest In ti.e it p ,se I saaitaiiuui w.iich Is to be a uait of i,. branch of the soldi t'h home at Hot Springs, S I). Last winter countess made Hti appro pi iat Inn in aid of the project. With the opening of this session Ihe house committee oo appropriations Is con sidering the architect's tentative plans for the various buildings of toe sanitarium, which contemplate a total expenditure .if half a million dollars. These plans were drawn by Thomas R. Kimball of Omaha, whose ability as an architect Is generally recognized. Nebraskans are well ac qualnted with his work at the Oma ha exposition In which he displayed & genius f"r combining architectural conceptions with pia:tlcal Ideas to meet the requirements of the case. The plans of the sanitarium met the unanimous Indorsement of the na tional board for the management of soldier's homes. Hunt. II. E. Pal mer, of Nebraska, a member of the board, submitted tne tlans to 'Uncle J.e" Cannon, chairman of the house committee on apptopriations. slated for speiker of the next house, who did not hisitate to say that lie was favorably Impressed with the unique features of the plans. To have won Uncle Joe's favor so readily within Itself speaks volumes for the adequacy of the architect's scheme. Conventional Ideas of hospital ar chltecture have been lost sight of Id this case, Briefly stated the plan de fines an elght-spoked wheel, the hub of which represents a court or plaza the diameter or which is annuo 200 feet, a colonnade through which the inmates may walk under cover to the various buildings which stand In relation to It as di spokes to the hub of a wheel. Beneath the colonnade Is a subway, affording a conduit for all plumbing, pipes and as a passage way for supplies which are wheeled upon trucks from the sotehouse. In the cenier or the court Is a fountain into which flows the hot mltuval water whose medicinal pp'petles have made famous the hot springs of South Dakota. Standing at the spoke which points toward the city of Hot Sotlngs Is the administration build ing two stories and basement, with archltectuial adornments, furnishing egress and Ingtess to the grounds. Diaiuctilcally "pposlte or upon the oilier side of the court, is the kitch en, storehouse, guardhouse, bath house, etc., which stands, of course, In the rear. Between these two main structures there are thr e hospitals buildings on either side of the wheel each taking the re aHve position or as many spokes Jutting out from the colonnade. Tnese are two story structures having a capacity of over fittv beds each. They are thlrtv feet wide and possibly 100 feet long. A porch runs al mg one side of each. Inclined planes lead from the colon nade Into these hopsltal buildings, easy of ascent, there being no stair way. There are many windows on both sides, aft rding a siipcranun danee of light The svstcm of venti lation is exhaustive and gceti.iuglv perfect, creating const mtly a fresh supply of purr air. In fact, the con triving idea of Ihe architect seems to have been to attain the maximum supply of sunshine and fresh air Up-to-date Ideas of perfect sanitation) down tot he smallest detail nave been goggested. bnoglig to tear fpproved scientific principles, ns an adbmef to the curative pr. p"itlg of Ihe min eral water which abounds, the valur of which was reeogn1.-!! hv the In dians long befoie ti.e white man found lo them a remedy for many Ills Messrs.

Philadelphia, Dec. 20. During the last seven weeks James Smith, a vagrant, wh was arrainged before Magistrate Kochersperger in the central police court, has lived in more ease and luxury thau has prob aoly ever fallen to the lot of a tramp.

He made such elaborate promises of working about the the place to the old woman who was actii.g as care taker to the house that she did not hesitate to admit him. Once inside the house Smith could nut be iuduced tu leave. He selected the choicest room in the rnausion and proceeded to lix It 1 p tu suit himself. The ocd lo his room was not to hi? liking, so he put an extra feather mattress on it. He also increased tne number of pictures In his room by car-ylng a few from other rooms In the house atd hanging them on the walls or his own room. Each day he. ate three meals. On several occasions the tramp tried to iuduce the caretaker of the house to serve bis breakfast to him In his room. Smith continu ally talked about the wor he intend ed doing about the place, but he never did any. Last Sunday Deputy Sheriff Say boldt. accompanied by his daughter aud till sister, took a trip to Belfry to S"e that good care was being taken of the house.

The latter place was thought by the magistiate to be tht best for Smith, and be was committed there for six months more. Boers are Coming to Colorado. , Denver, Coin., Dec. 20.

Disposition of Admiral Dewey's fleet during the holidays is to be made under the di rection of the secretary of the navy, in view of the increasing complica tions arising In connection with Venezuela, and the wishes of this government not to arouse suspicion unnecessarily by dispatching a large naval force to Venezuela waters. Admiral Dewev cabled toe depart ment in regard to the orders for his fleet during the Christmas holidays. Orders are now In preparation for the various vessels and will be for warded to the admiral in the next day or two. No inflection upon Admiral Dewey is intended by the navy department In deciding to give up the orders fur his snips, Instead of giving him a Tree hand In the matter as It was ex-( ected would tie done That there may be a thorough co-operation of the navy with the state department in the handling or the Venezuelan situa tion, however, It seemed that the question could be more (satisfactorily settled bete, as the navy depart ment is in possession of all the facts regarding the action of the allied powers, and danger of conflicting with the policy of the state depart ment will be averted. ' It is unlikely that men of war will be sent to La Guayra, the feeling .be ing that the presence of American men or war at this time might cuse uneasiness among the allied powers, as well as offer encouragement to President Castro to maintain blffie flant attitude. f On the other hand the sit has grown so acuta within t few days that both state ad., oavy department otlicials are iigre,,ihat it will not be umiss to rendevythe fleet in ports within easy rauge of the Venezuelan coast.

Offici als of the Heading railway company hold out no hope for relief in the an thracite coal stringency this winter despite the leports of the company to mine and ship tu its full capacity. "Under normal conditions,-' said one of ihe officials, "the anthracite production is nevei equal to the de mand duringthe winter months and the Heading and all the other an thiacite c mpanie8 have been obliged to draw upi n the stock at various storage points to help out the de mands of the trade7 ' 'i'liis year there is not a pound of coal at any of these storage points and consumers are dependent entire ly upon the daily output of the mines The big dealers in New England, who usually have in stock at thisi se;iS m of the year from 50,000 to 100,-1 duo tuns, are dependent entirely udou what is being shipped to them by the various companies. "Practically all the leading com pany's collieries are in operation. The company shipped from the mines during the last two days nearly 1.900 cars of coal. This means a daily pro duction of nearly 60,000 tons." It is stated that the Pennsylvania railn.ad has 3 000 of the Beading company's coal cars on its tracks in the western part of the state as well as 2 500 belonging to the Central Railway of New Jersey, and these; are urgently needed in the anthracite trade. Their non-delivery, it is claimed, is causing much delay in the shipment of anthracite to points west of Harrisburg. Readiiig company officials decline to discuss the question as to whether the advance of 50 cents a ton ma3e in October would hold good during 1003, but they admit that it will cer tainly rule beyond January 1, 1903, the date fixed by Mr Baer for a re duction tc the old rate. An operati r, who attended the meeting nf the operators in New York stated that the advance would be retained during all next year. Washington, Dec. 19.
