Many Building Operations Have
IMPROVEMENTS IN NEW YORK
Millions Doing Spent at Brooklyn
Navy Yard and Remarkable Change
Dclng Made Getting Ready for
the Tiger's Reign.
Now York , Nov. 13. Now York has
had trouble of Its own in the matter
of getting up now buildings because
of the strikes from which tbo city
has been suffering for tbo past sev
eral months. Despite all this , however -
over , there nro several Improvements
under way that will , within the next
two or three years , add greatly to
the magnificence and Importance of
the city. Fashionable apartment and
tenement house operations have
been the most pronounced feature of
the building activity since the settle-
mentor the strikes , but there are
several elegant now office buildings
In prospect , with a few palatial pri
vate residences In the faslilonablo
\ districts and another theatre or two
Across the bridge millions of dollars
lars are being spent at the Brooklyn
Navy yard and within the next few
months a remarkable change in tbo
appearance and efficiency of the yard
will be noticed. Among the Improve
ments will be a new dry dock which
will cost $1,200,000 and which Is ex
pected to bo tbo largest and host
equipped dry dock In tbo country
for repairing battleships. Although
tbo improvements will make possible
the more rapid construction of ships
and greatly faclllitato repair work ,
the fact remains that tbo area of
tbo yard Is entirely too limited for
the growing needs of the navy-
It Is doubtful If there Is a nuslcr
man In New York today than Dis
trict Attorney William Travors , le-
romo. If plans which ho has on foot
carry , any Impression that may have
been formed that Now York Is to bo
a 'wide open" town after January 1
when Tammany Hall takes possession
of the city again may bo removed
Immediately. That Mr. Jerome will
bo a thorn In tbo side of the Tiger
administration in case of policy of a
"liberal enforcement" of the laws Is
already apparent. Mr. Jerome as
serts that he will keep nfter the
gamblers and dives and further an
nounces that a number of Now York
i millionaires have confidentially pledg
ed whatever financial support bo
may need for the success of his work.
After the horse show tonight so
ciety will run down to Lakewood forever
over Sunday. The season , which
promises to bo very lively at the
fashionable resort , opens tonight and
awag'gor people from all parts of the
conntry have been flocking there for
the past few days. The Now York
contingent will bo large and fash
ionable. Ono of Lakowood's attrac
tions that appeals not only to Now
Yorkers , but to strangers as well , Is
its accessibility to New York. An
hour and a half on the fast trains

It has been a long time since so
many cases of pneumonia have been
reported at the various hospitals In
this city. A very prominent physi
cian informs your correspondent that
Vbo majority of such cases at this
"time of year may bo traced directly
to the poorly heated fiats and apart
ments. Landlords and agents put
off the heating of flats to the last day
and the result is that many cases of
pneumonia are developed. The resi
dents of the west side seem to suffer
most and It is expected that the
board of health will bo called upon
to take action In the matter.
Long Beach , L. I. , which It Is re
ported that the United States govern

submarine station Is one of the pret
tiest spots around Now York. It
has many natural advantages , being
located on Gardiners Bay where al
most every year the warships are
stationed for practice. It Is about
three miles in length.
Much Interest has been aroused
among Now York militiamen over the
possibility of the mllltla regiments
of the United States being placed up
on a basis of pay In a manner whlcl
would comply with that allowed by
the United States government to
men In the regular army. It Is under
stood that a bill will bo Introduced a

will embrace the proposition to do
this. The local guardsmen are unanl

A keen observer of things foml

The discovery that the channels In

nit surely blocked by tbo tons of
llrt and refuse that are being dumped
nto the water daily by scores of
scows , is not pleasing to the shipping

adius of three-fourths of a mile

seven fathoms of water , where there

For example of how men may live
and act according to precedent there
can be no bettor reference than to the
lord chamberlain's office in London.
There In quiet rooms day after day
men learned in state etiquette , court
dress and royal functions reach down
heavy volumes to see what was done
on such and such an occasion. Beauti
ful pictures showing with minute ex
actness tbo details of the court costume
under various circumstances are ready
to their hands.
Is the shah of Persia coming ? Is the
kaiser soon to arrlv6 ? Is the king go
ing to receive the monarch of Slam ?
Is one of the royal prlnccst es to be
married ? Whi'ii any of these events
happens , the officials at the lord cham
berlain's office know exactly what to
do. And if some point should crop up
which has not been raised for a cen
tury or more they have the faithful
official records as to what was done on
the hist like occasion.
A CtirloiiN Clock.
In one of the chief watchmaking es
tablishments in Xurlch theie is to be
seen a remarkable curiosity in the way
of watch or clock making. The time
piece is In the form of a ball , which
moves imperceptibly down an inclined
surface without rolling. Tin ; length of
this Inclined surface , which is sixteen
Inches long , Is accomplished from top
to bottom in twenty-four hours. Then
the ball only needs lifting to the top
again. This extraordinary timepiece
has no spring and therefore needs no
winding. The hands are kept In mo
tion by the sliding along an Inclined
plane. London Globe.
