The work of ccnatructlon of the United
atatcs nsh hatchery at Spring Ilrnncu , In
Delaware county , la. , noir Manchester , was
bccun In 183C , and has been continued ever
since. Tliu bulldlngn are now nearly all
completed and the first hatching was done
tnoro than a year ago. The Manchester
News gives the following account of Iho
methods In use at the hatchery :
"Thcro are forty-two ponds which will be
tlscd for rearing the fish at various stages
of their development. Of these t'Jreo arc
largo ponds , situated at the south cod of
the grounds , and will contain the grown
fish , which are keyt .for . breeding. Next
north are elcht nsnilu 80x20 feet In nlze ,
called the largo rearing pcuds. North of
thcso are yet smaller ponils which will re
ceive tlio young flHh from the butchery. The
eight ponds are three feet deep and con
tain about thirty Inches of water ; thu
smaller ones have about eighteen Inches of
water. The ponda are lltied with two-Inch
hemlock olank , are sodded about the edge ,
and walks nnd driveways border all of them.
The grounds are leveled p and brought tea
a gentle elope from t'.io base of the blurt
westward. The brushwood and many of the
trees were of neceiwlty sacrificed , but as
much as possible of the natinal was pro-
flcrved. When the entire plans are com
pleted , the landscape , with Us srnclous
driveways , well kept lawns nnd sparkling
f'uiitalna , will be a picture which will de
llKht the eye to rest upon.

while the architecture Is always of the
latest and best , the misslveness and solidity

of this rapidly devckvcd western country
are but makeshifts In comparison.

Already several consignments of trout hsve

Manchester people may be pardoned for
taking a good deal of pride In the nsw
hatchery. It lias reached a point In com
pletion now where the full plans are re
vealed and the enterprise 15 of much greater
magnitude than It was at llrst generally sup
posed. The appropriation of $ ' . ! 7,000 so far
provided by roiigres ; has been carefully ex
pended , but It will of necessity1 require ad
ditional sums to bring the system to a
degree of clllclcncy and completion which is
contemplated. There is still more work to
bo expended upon the grounds and the ad
dition of ponds , but congress will ' without
doubt liberally supply the- funds for'the pur
pose , more especially that It Is being con

wolves which 4iJd been disturbing ranchmen
for several years , taya they must for the
prestot cou t en a certain per cent of loss
from this source every year , and that the
per cent Is becoming greater each year. Ho
considers the ridding of the range country of
these pools cne of the scrlo'.H problems which
cattlemen have 10 deal with. The Jlfllcuttlcs

only cat of t'niwo they have killed , and vo-
fuse to touch the same carcass the second
time. Thin trait of thelru only makes them
the more destructive , as they kill whenever
they uro hungry , and , after eating what they
want , leave the rest of the animal lying on
the prairie. So far hunting tiicm with dogs
boa not been a success , as the hounds which
can tatch them , even If sighted , either can
not or will net kill them , and the heavier
dogs which , foulj lundlo them are not swift
enough to go. up to them. Agalti , they are

Ho has been out several times this winter In
sections where ( ho wolves have been at
work , cciJ so far hag not been able to get a
sight of one of the animals , all.hough trace
of their work wa to be found and they could
bo heard howling at night.
While they arc destructive to all classes of
stock and arc likely to pull down full grown
horses and cattle , they do the most damage
among colts and next among calves. Those
who bavo seen them at work say they will
get among a bunch of horses or cattle and
allay the fears of the animals by playing
around them In the most friendly manner

While the prairie wolves are not dangerous
or destructive to live stock they take advan
tage of the work ofthe grays , and after the
larger wolves have left thu carcass , fill them
selves with what is left , and as a result arc
repotted to be fatter than usual for them at
this season of the year , when their food is
generally scarce ai d hard to get.
It has been estimated that the destruction
by gray wolves in the range country Is over
$100,000 a year , and as they are increasing
In numbers the loss from this source .becomes
greater. So far their work Is confined to the
west side of the river , but an occasional one
Is seen on the cast side. They occasionally
rros. < nn the Ice but have never remained on
this side for any great length of time.
While 'they aie so destructive to stock , they
are very shy In regard to human beings , and
keep well out of the way , but It Is possible
that they might attack people If It were not
that they can secure all the food they want
from the beards and not get Into danger
which they would encounter In
Gencial wolf hunts have "been " tried as a
means of getting rid of them , but without
any great degree of success , as they keep
themselves well hidden In the day time , and
If closely hunted on one section of the range
only move 'to ' some other section where they
are not so closely pressed. This satisfies those
who were losers by their presence , and some
other section Is worked1 over , leaving the
damage they do just as great as before the
hunter drove them out.
The question is becoming a serious one -to
portions of the range country , and unless a
breed of dcgs can be secured which will
clean them out , the stockmen will be at a
loss to know what method to use in getting
rid of them.

WASHINGTON , Jan. 1. The story of the
dispossession of a party of Americans from
CMpporton Island by n Mexican war ship , as
reported by an Incoming steamer at San
Francisco , as yet has had no offlclal conflrma-
tlon. All that Is known at the Mexican le
gation here Is that vague rumors were afloat
that the British had taken possession of the
Island and that , with a view to ascertaining
the sovereignty of ( Mexico over It , a war ship
was sent there to maintain her claim. The
Department of State has nothing at all on
the subject , hut Is not disturbed over the
news. The law permits an American citizen
to locate upon any guano Island , such as
Cllppcrton , solely for the purpose of taking
Dfl the guano , but It must bo alllrmatlvely
shown that the Island Is not part of the terrl-
lory of another nation at the time of loca
tion. As to Cllpperton Island , therefore , It
Is simply a question as to the prior right of
Mexico to the title and tlio Impression Is that
Its title Is as good as was that of Brazil 'to
the Island of Trinidad , which was bought by
the British for a cable station. U Is recalled
hero that In two cases the United States gov
ernment relinquished Islands lying In the bay
of Honduras to 'Mexico ' under similar cir
cumstances to those presented lu this case ,
upon proof of Mexican title.

The year 1S93 was welcomed at the rooms
of tlio Young Men's Christian association ! ii
tfcls city In a most auspicious mnnner. While
the eicrcd features of the work of tlio or
ganization were not lost eight of In the ex
ercises of the day , social intercourse and ath
letic cctitcsts were made much more promi
nent. The Raines were well contested , and
worn enjoyed not only by the participants
but by a numerous crowd of spectators.
The event of the day was the basket ball
game between teams representing 'the Young
Mcn'fl Christian i-e-soclaUcno or Onietin and
Chicago. The game waa ployed In the even
ing under the glare of the electric light , and
was 'Witnessed ' by about 100 spectators. Tfte
victory rested with 'the team of Chicago ,
whoso men evidenced longer experience with
the game. The final score was twenty-three
goals for the Chicago team and nlno for the
Omaha tram. Tiie Chicago team roiks as Olio
of the llrst four basket ball twins In the
country. Though the work of some of Its
playaru was at times brilliant l sl evening
the general work was not up to the team's
high standard , as stated by some of the play
ers themselves after the game. On account
of the hard ride from Chicago the Chicago
men were iot lu the best of trim for their
guino hero.
The work of the Omaha boys was good ,
fully as good an was to be expected of u team
or so brief an existence. Stllls : < i's work tit
left forward was by long odds tlio beat for
the Omaha ! sldo nnd that of ( inn Miller at
right forward and of Captain lledfleld at left
guard was such us to merit especial commcn-
ilattua. After the game Ocooh Uarncs of the
Omaha ttam said that ho felt perfectly sat-
Lsfleu1 with the result and that the b&ys had
acquitted thcuiEOlvcd Ui a praiseworthy and
credltablo matticr. The players of the Chicago
cage 'tram who deserve montlco for brllllont
playing tire Captlan Ocorgo Scllar , whose
quick work at left forward helped out his
team wonderfully ; II. Haumsartner , whoso
work at right guard was very fast and meat
olTeoMve. and William French , left guard ,
whoso gcul throwing was well worth the
prlco of admission to see.
In the llrst half of the game the Chicago
: > oys outplayed the Iccal boys , going at them
In hammer and tongs fashion from the
start. The result of the first halt was : Chicago
cage , IT ; Omaha , 0. In the second half Omaha
picked up wonderfully and scored 9 goals ,
while Chicago secured hut 0 , making the
llnal score : 'Chicago ' , 23 ; Omaha , U. If Chicago
cage outplayed Omaha In the first half the
reverse of this was true during the second
liaU. 'Good ' training on the part of the
Omaha boys showed to good advantage In
that they were able to outplay their op
ponents In the second half after having been
outplayed themselves In the llrst half.
John Latto and \V. III. Jefterlu of Chicago
acted as scorers and W. ai. Van Arnam of
South Omaha served as umpire. After the
game the members of both teams sat down
to a supper of many courses. In which the
utmost good fellowship prevailed. The Chicago
cage boys were made to feel thoroughly at
home during their entire stay In the city.
They were met at the Union depot l the
morning by a delegation of the Omaha asso-
clatlo.i , all of whom were attired in suits
typical of the western plains and were seated
astride the best bucking bronchos that
could be found in Omaha. During the morn
ing the visitors were escorted through the
exposition grounds.
Between the two halves of the basket ball
game Herbert Whlpple. 'Roland ' Klnney and
W. 01. Van Arnam gave a fine exhibition of
tumbling1. Whipple'd work on the irlngs and
Flnney's handstand work were Iboth excep-
tloi ally good. The running high jump was
won by Ollphant , five feet three inches. Wil
liam French won the 'high diving contest ,
five feet three inches. Ollphant won tke
polo vault , eight feet. The Indoor base ball
game between < the Omaha and the Chicago
teams was played In the afternoon and won
by Chicago. Score : 36 to 1. This contest
was witnessed by about 150 people.
In the evening there was an Interesting
musical ami literary entertainment , given
under the direction of T. G. Iladley. Hech-
told's orchestra furnished line music. Carl
Tuneborg rendered a couple of excellent
piano solos. There were vocal solos by iMrs.

and banquet" for the benefit of'the newsboys
and bootblacks of the city last night was a
big success. Crelghton hall , 'whoro ' the 'ball '

masquorate costumes.
The newsboys and bootblacks had plenty
of opportunity for enjoyment yesterday , for
they had no less than three spreads. Be

SALT LAKE. Jan. 1. ( Special Corre
spondence of The iBee. ) 'A reproduction of
the Mormon tabernacle will bo one of the
novel and attractive features of Utah's ex
hibit at tho. Transmississlnnl Rxnnsltlnn. The
material used In the construction of the
model of this famous building will be Utah
onyx , which varies In color from pure white
to all shades of lemon and orange yellows.
The roof of the miniature tal > ernaclo will
be hollowed flrom a solid block of onyx. The
material Is found in ledges and may be ob
tained from the quarry In any size dcalrcd
singularly free from flaws or Imperfections.
The forty exterior pillars , which will sup
port the root and contribute to the massive
solidity of the building , will afford ample op
portunity for displaying the mirrorllkc sur
face of the polished onyx , and electric lights
on the Interior of the building will reveal the
transparent properties of this beautiful ma
terial , which has only recently been discov
ered within the boundaries of the new state.
The work of the building will > be done by
Olaf Nllson of Salt Lake City , an expert
marble cutter who made the onyx casket
to contain the Book of Mormon 'which was re
cently presented to King Oscar of Sweden.
Silk culture , -an - Industry which was Intro
duced Into Utah by 'Ilrlgliani Young almost
forty years ago , 'has ' been given a new 1m-
pems by the appointment of a state silk com
mission and by the payment of a 'bounty of
25 cents for each pound of cocoons raised In
the state. Efforts are being made to have a
complete working exhibit at the Transmls-
stsaippl Exposition , which will demonstrate
the development attained by this Industry In
Utah during 'the last five years. The women
of Utah who have engaged In this work have
not only succeeded In raising cocoons of extra
good quality , but have added to their knowl
edge -tlii ) art of reeling the silk from the
cocoons with marked success.
A silk flag formed part of the decorations
of the tabernacle last July when the pioneers
celebrated 'their ' entrance Into the valley.
This flag , iwhldh was two yards long and
weighed a pound and a quarter , was made
from silk raised , reeled and woven In Utah.
Silk culture Is an Industry which Is yet In
Us Infancy In the United States , and ono
which offers a now and broad field for women.
The task of reeling 'the ' silk Is particularly
adapted to women , as It requires a light yet
accurate touch , and the Utah exhibit will beef
of extraordinary Interest , as It IB proposed to
show the process of silk reeling as carried on
by Mormon women.
