WASHINGTON, Jan. 4. A new animal
haa been discovered In British East Africa
by the Smithsonian African Scientific ex
pedition, which, under the leadership of
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt; has been In
that region securing jpecimens of fauna
and flora for the national museum of this
city since last April. This new animal,
the first announcement of whose discovery
was made at the Smithsonian Institution
today. Is a hitherto unknown species of
otocyon, to which officials of the scientific
organisation have given the name of Ver-
gatua. It Is a small carnlverous mammal
closely resembling a fox.
The otocyon vegatua Is generally buff in
color, and It has been found by Mr. Ger
rltt Miller of the museum staff to differ
slightly from the otocyort megaiotls, which
la found farther south In Africa, especially
In color and In the characteristics of its
teeth and skull. The otocyon Is peculiar
to Africa and is not represented In the
United States. The skull of thla new form
closely resemble that of th gray fox of
our native fauna.

ALL COWS MUST BE INSPECTED
Another Meetlaac Arranged with
Street Hallway Company la Effort
to Rrsaee Grade oa
The city council last night decided not to
appeal from the decision of Judge Snyder
of the superior court in the pure milk
ordinance case, In which the court held
that tiie city had not the right to require
dairymen and milk dealers to pay for a
license from the municipality to sell milk.
It was shown that the expense of taking
the case to the supreme court would be In
excess of the revenue derived from such
licenses. City Solicitor Kimball, on mo
tion of Councilman . Morgan, was directed
to draft an amendment to the ordinance
eliminating the license feature.
Although the council decided to eliminate
the license provision of the pure milk ordi
nance, dairymen and milk dealers will bu
required to secure a permit from the city"
clerk before being permitted to sell, and
this permit will not be Issued to any
dairyman or dealer who does not comply
with tho other provisions of the ordinance,
such as having his cows given the tuber
culin test and hla buildings and equipment
kept in a sanitary and cleanly condition.

Your engineer and solicitor believe, how
ever, that there are some matters that can
perhaps be agreed upon between the city
and the company which will simplify such
action and perhaps render the same un
necessary If the company will act upon

mat tne committee of the whole fix a time
for meeting tho representatives of the
company and having a conference with
tnem upon tne matter connected with the
change of the tracks to grade. . There are
some places In this grade where It would
appear that a modified grade for the tracks

and there are other matters which vour

upon to tne advantage of Doth the city
and the company.
We therefore request that the committee
of the whole meet such representatives
some time during th coming week and go
over the situation.

compensation, the) council ordered the bill

a warrant for the amount.

munication to the council claimed royalties
of $769.20 on the North Eighth street bridge
and $500. on the Benton street bridge, claim
ing the use by the city of its patents in
the construction of these bridges. The
claim was referred to the city engineer and
Fearing that In the event of a sudden
thaw the present Ice gorge at the Eighth
street bridge over Indian creek might re

was directed to'notIfy the contractor for
the new bridge, E. A. Wickham, to remove
the present structure at once In case of
danger from this source.

MUST PRODUCE RESULTS
Secretary Wilson Make New Order
In Reference to Outside Work
of Clerk. v
WASHINGTON. Jan. 4. "Produce results
for the government before devoting part
of your talents to outside Interests," was
the direction given by Secretary of Agrl
culture Wilson today at a conference of
the buerau chiefs of his department. About
1,000 of what are known In the service as
htudent employes, mostly located In Wash
ington, but many scattered throughout the
country, are affected.
Secretary Wilson says he has no dispo
sition to interefere with the heads of the
bureau thernselves, for he holds them di
rectly responsible for high standards ex
pected from their bureaun. Nor does he
intend to stop the low salaried employes,
uch as -those who receive say from $003
to $.-:09, but he feels that when the govern
ment spends time and money training em
ployes In Its eclentlflc work and advances
them to salaries of $1,400, $1,600 and up
wards, it should have full return.
It Is to these that the qrery "has a
clerk the right to do as he pleases in work
after his regular hours?" will apply.
Secretary Wilson appointed a committee
to consider and report on the subject.
