Walsh, the gold and silver mining klnc and
financial advisor of Leopold, king of the
Belgians, seems disposed to surpass the
record of fastidious entertainment set by
himself at the time of the Parle exposition.
When Mrs. Walsh was thanking Bouguereau
for coming to her dinner last Wednesday
the artist replied: "The trouble. Is,
madame, that you never give a dinner, they
always srb banquets."
Baron Coubertln once said: "When the
Walehs haven't sixty people dining with
them they feel lonely."
After each banquet Mr. Walsh always
provides a short variety show in which the
most expensive opera stars, ballet dancers
snd music hall specialists take part. Mr.
Walsh varied hla program this week. Once
he took his guests to Barbison, a famous
resort for artist's in the forest of Fon

the metropolis of the klns of Munster,
where It was known as the 'Lla Fall.' or

'Traditions say that In 513, Fergus, a

There is a Lack of Es
LONDON, July jM. The preparations for
the coronation of King Edward have been
reaumed with full swing, but it is Impos
sible, of course, to rearouse vivid public
enthusiasm In the postponed event. It has
now been decided that the whole route over
which the royal carriage is to pass will
be flushed, dried and then sprinkled with
sand, thus forming a carpet which will re
duce the vibrations of the vehicle. The
barriers will not be re-erected at all the
cross streets Intersecting the coronation
route. Otherwise the ordinary police regu
latlons will be carried out.
One of the saddest features of the post
ponement of the king's crowning from the
viewpoint of the speculator is the great
slump tn the price of seats. A conspicuous
example of this is the fine stand at -St
Margaret's, Westminster, where the best
seats were sold for ten guineas. Tbeee
prices have dropped 20 per cent, while at
many ot the beat places along the route
at from one to three guineas secure seata
previously held at five and eight guineas.
Some smart clubs on St. James street aud
Picadllly bars their own troubles. When
the members balloted for seats in ths club
stands the winners cheerfully paid ten
guineas each, and now many of the club-
men want their money back, but the club
committees Insist on the thrifty-minded
members enjoying the pageant at ths orlg-

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. July 26. (Speclsl Tele
gram.) Notwithstanding that the irrigation
bill has been placed In the hands of the
secretary of the Interior for the disposition
of the money to be used for the purpose of
establishing Irrigation work, reservoirs and
s canals as provided for by the bill, the De
TA I psrtment of Agriculture is determined te
insist upon its right to direct where cer-
tain reservoirs and storage basins are to
be located. Under the .bill. Secretary
department snouia control the sunject ot
irrigation In Its broadest field and that the
department which he represents should
locst reservoirs, run laterals snd other
wise provide means of watering the country
contemplated in the bill.
But there are other forces at work. The
Agricultural department has projected itself
Into the field as having something to ssy
about the location of the irrigation work
and' its ' chief Irrigation ' expert, Ellwood
Mead of Wyoming, is reported to have said,
as appearing In a Washington paper this
morning, that "the Interior department
people have evidently the idea of proceed
log along broad lines regardless of legal
complications which may ensue. My Idea
Is that until some satisfactory solution of
the various water rights problems hss been
reached the proceedings of the Interior de
partment are rather premature. Matters
lare as yet entirely in an experimental
stage, In my opinion
Ssys Criticism Is Jealousy.
It Is stated now by the geological survey,
into whose hands the question of the loca
tion of reservoirs is to be placed, that
Mr. Mead's criticism is based upon Jealousy,
for the reason that the Irrigation bureau
over which he presides haa not been, called
upon to participate in the preliminary work
which the secretary of the Interior has
outlined for the geological survey during
the next few months and for which he haa
set aside 1260,000 out ot the $5,000,000 avail
able tor the purpose of Irrigating the six
teen states and territories included ia the
general irrigation bill.
Report of Missouri xrirmmtaalaa. .
The final annual report of the Missouri
river commission, which waa legislated out
of existence by congress, waa filed with
the chief engineer of tha War department
today. The report la suggestive of a dirge,
going Into detail aa to the plans tor perma-
nnf ImnrAwmniit nf the rtvur whlph failed
of realization by reason of the refusal ot
congress to conmue the appropriations or
allow the money appropriated to be de
voted to permanent projects.
The report shows there was available on
July 1, 1901, funds for the improvement ot
rivers in the commission's Jurisdiction as
follows: Missouri river, ' $14,359.46; Osage
river, $9,985.87; Gasconade river, $1,488.
With such a limited fund the commission
did not undertake extensive improvements.
I Dut confined Ita efforts to the protection
of the Improvements already made. The
commiaslon reports that aince 1884 there
has been appropriated $7,150,000 for the
Improvement ot the rivers. Of this amount
$240,000 was expended above ' Sioux City,
$216,364 was expended in opposition to the
wishes of the commission in detached lo
calities which could not aid either naviga
tion or commerce, $380,082 waa apent tor
nag boats, work which on other streams
is taken from the general fund; $855,765
went tor plant, office expenaes and salaries
of the commission and $469,685 for gauges
and surveys. This left but $380,201 for
permanent Improvement of the river, and
this was extended over a jperlod ot eighteen
yeara. The commission reports that a '
I strip of the river forty-five miles long, near
I the mouth of the Osage, was Improved and
a channel alx feet deep established and
I maintained. The commissioners express
regret thst this work could not be eon-
I tlnued. It Is recommended that congress
I make an appropriation of $1,000,000 a year
for at leaat three years for ths permanent
Improvement of the river from Its mouth
to Jefferson City, Mo. The members of the
I commission up to the time when legislation
I cut them off the pay roll were Colonel
I Amos M. Stlckner of the War denartment.

The recent order providing for the re
demption of uncanceled poatal cards Is held
up, pending the decision .of the attorney
general as to the legality ot aucb a course.
This order was to go Into effect August
1 and directed postmasters everywhere to
redeem all uncanceled postal cards at 75
per cent of their face value, paying there
for In stamps. But ths attention ot th
postmaster general wss directed to an old
law, which says: "No poatmaster shall
sell or dispose of stamps in sny manner
except for cash, under penalty of a fine
According to - thla law, redemption of
postal cards In ths manner prescribed by
the recent order appears to be Illegal. It
was aaid at the Poatofflce department to
day that the entire -question of ths le
gality of the order ia being looked into
by the attorney general far tha Poatofflce
department and the ruling Is expected
from that office Tueeday or Wednesday
next It la estimated that if the redemp
tion order is uphsld, the government will
be compelled to pay out not leas than
$1,000,000. for uncanceled postal cards.
