The park site Injunction case was put
over until Wednesday of next wefek for
the reason that the olty waa not ready.
The special j counsel had not been hired
to defend the case at the hearing-, which
waa set for yesterday afternoon. It Is ex
pected that Lambert & Winters will have
charts of the case, although a current
rumor also eaya that T. J. Mahoney of
Omaha will conduct the defense. He Is also

' Repatrlac l Street Vladnet.
Extensive bracing is now in progress
der the Q street viaduct, which has .been
closed for the last week on account of Its
dangerous' condition. The bid stringers
had rusted and -the 'strain 'of the heavy
cars had cracked them In many places,
so that it was counted extremely danger
ous to longer use the viaduct without re
pairs. The work now In progress Is what
la called shoring up the structure. When
thJs temporary work Is completed .it . Is
thought the viaduct will be strong enough
to bear the. weight, of ordicary traffic AS
soon as the new steel for the replacing
of the two- dangerous spans arrives It will
be put In place and It Is the Intention to
accomplish this work If possible without
Interrupting travel. It Is likely on this
account that the railroad will not look
with great favor on the repair or recon
struction of the L street viaduct. No con
ferences have as yet been held on thli
structure. It is obligatory on the Union
Pacific and the Union Stock yards to keep
this viaduct in repair, but whether they
can be prevailed upon to build a . new
structure Is a mater of sotoe doubt.

books of tbs last year. ' The Interest ex
cited by them is Indeed scarcely less In
England and America than In Germany.
Everywhere they have been looked on as
historical documents of the first Import
ance; while they have also been greeted as
a semarkable contribution to the literature
of intimate revelation, taking; their place
with the diary of Pepys as well as with the
Orevllle memoirs. The late chancellor is
said to have revealed very frankly the in
side history of the kaiser's dismissal of Bis
marck, and other secrets of German diplo
matic and political history. It waa In con
sequence of the publication of thla work
that the chancellor's son was compelled to
resign his post. The nearness of publica
