A DlfToronco in Frolchts.
CHICAGO , May 21. [ Special Telegram to
Titr. Bun. ] What bids fair to cause n rupture -
turo between the Central Truffle and Wes
tern Freight associations , was embodied In
tbo report of n committee to the Central
Trafllo association at the recent meeting.
The report showed that the AVcstorn associ
ation had made proportional rates materially
less to the lake nnd rail hues than to the all
rail linos. For Instance , the llrst class pro
portional rate from Chicago to St. Paul Is 50
cents from thn all rail lino. From the lake
and rail lines the western roads nccept n pro-
iwrtlonal rate of 38 cents. The difference in
the rates of the live other classes is as
marked , amounting to 20 per cent less from
the Inko and rail lines. Ono result of these
rates Is that freight from St. Joseph , Mich. ,
is tnkcti through Chicago and to St. Paul 8
cents cheaper than the same freight could
bo taken from Chicago , cither as local or
through all rail freight. aTho committee re
ferred the settlement to Chairman Blanch-
ard. with u request to adjust the rates if
possible. _

Since the school bond proposition for the
Issuance of (300,000 for the erection of now
school buildings , nnd fortho purchase of now
school sites , has boon defeated by a vote of
the electors , nothing will bo done at present
by the board of education townrd Increasing
the accommodation , turthor than renting
buildings , nshas been done heretofore.
Many of the members of the board nro dis
gusted with the defeat of the bonds. They
claim thnt the defeat was duo to the inalffor-
cnco of people who nro not fully nllvo to the
needs of the city , aud also to the present
plumbers' striuo.
Some think thnt if the $75,000 proposition
for tbo addition to the high school hnd not
been submitted , the gcneinl proposition
would have carried , nnd then the board
would hnvo secured the other necessary new
buildings the coming season. As it is now ,
public educational facilities are inadequate ,
nnd the members of the board mnko this
statement without hesitancy.
Sneaking to a reporter for TIIK Ben , last
night , Sheriff Coburn , who is one of the
members of the board , stated that the bond
Issue would bo dropped for awhile , at least ,
Ho doesn't think the High school addition
proposition had anything to do with
the defeat of the bonds. After the elapse of
u few months , it is thought that the question
will bo taken up nguln , for the reason that
more school room U needed and must bo had.
About all the money the board bns ou
hand is $18,000 , which is the balance in the
slto nnd building fund. This amount Mr.
Sholes wants to appropriate to the erection
of a temporary building nt the Paul school
site , to relieve the overcrowded condi
tion of the Long school. Ho offered u
resolution to thnt effect at Monday night's
meeting of the board , but action was ro-
torred fqr two weeks.
The members of the board say that the
people will bo anxious for bettor nnd more
adcquato facilities betore the proposition is
put to them again to vote upon.

7,000,000 CANDLE POWER.
The Ijl htat St. Catherine's Point the
Alou Brilliant In the World.
A correspondent of the London Times
Dalle attention to the light now shown
from St. Catherine' : ; point lighthouse
in the Isle of Wiffht. Prior to Mny 1
of Inatyear ; the light oxhihitod nt this
btiition was described in the admiralty
list of lights as.iixed , Dioptric , of the
lirst order. That is , it was u steady
light produced hy means of a six-wick
concentric oil burner and refrnctiiiir
lenses , tno intensity of the naiced
Iliuno being equal to about 730
candles. At the present mo
ment ( in electric light IB being shown
at St. Catherine's , the full power inten
sity of which was recently stated by
Ciptain , Snyder Webb , the deputy muster -
tor of the Trinity house , to bo equal in
illuminating power to rather more than
seven million candles for the light
now rovolvcb a mighty Hash of live
seconds'1 duration sweeps around the
wen and is visible at distances that seem
incredible , To elTcct this improve
ment a cammpdious engine-room has
been added to the establishment , con
taining three steam engines of twelve-
horse po\\orenoh andtwomiigneto-olec-
tric machines of the Do Mcritons
typo. Two of the engines are
intended to work for lighting
purposes , the third being meant
to work the fog signal , As a precau
tion agninsL broiik-down. everything is
in duplicate at least , with an oil
light in reserve as well. The only
other lighthouses on the coast of Eng
land nt which the light is produced by
means of electricity are Soutor point ,
on the coast of Durham , botwoeu tbo
mouths of the Tyne and the Wear ; the
South Foreland , and at the Lizard , on
the Cornish coast. But the St. Cathe
rine's ' light is ton times more powerful
than the best of thorn the ono on
Soutor point , It is , in fact , one of , if
not , as is believed , actually the most
intensely brilliant' light in existence ,
and one which the country , us a mari
time nation , may certainly feel proud
to sue on its shores.
Tlio Komurkiible Find of Two Vomit ;
Men in Missouri ,
On Saturday , April 27 , James Mc-
Cnlun , a young nmn residlug on Wal
nut crook , near Index , Mo. , was squir
rel huntin/r. /
Noticing his dog barking furiously ,
ho wont forward. Tlio object of the
dogs attention was an enormous black-
sniiko , which , when killed , measured
fourteen feet und nine inches.
The reptile stood perfectly erect for
about four feet of its lengthuud seemed
unable to move the middle part of its
body at all.
Although somewhat abashed by the
formidable appearance of the reptile ,
snys the St. Louts Republic , Jim way
not slow to observe that it could not
raovo from the spot where its body
soojiicd bound to tlio earth , so Jio picked
up u btout club and striking the monbtor
several blows upon its head , which it
WUB weaving ubout in the uir , soon dlB-
nutchod it.

They took from its body an old bootleg -
log thonged together at each end , and
containing something 6 ° cavy they
cquld scarcely lift it. Great was their
aurpriiso and joy when , upon cutting
open the boot log , it was found to bo
flllod with gold coins frorU $1 up to 320.
The only plausible explanation ia
this : It is well known by parties living
here that during the Into war n , party
of bushwhackers burled n bootleg full
of gold somewhere on Walnut Crook.
The monslor was found near a. small
rnvlno , where It is supposed the gold
waa washed out of Us hiding place mid

able to imagine how lie managed to
swallow It , wo can't concolvo why ho
attempted it unless to his race belongs
the greed for gold which Is a prominent
trait in human nature , since man
yielded to his ancestral tomptor.
At any rate the snake got It , then
Jim , who IH now the hnppo possessor of
$3,810 in gold. Wo Jiopo ho will Ulvldo
with Ed and prosper. The snake that
swallowed the canoe and nine Indiana
was a much larger ono than this , but
for actual value this ono takes the cake ,
