The Discoverer of Argon PROFESSOR RAMSAY IN HIS LABORATORY, LONDON, Em., April 18, 1895.— 1f you will walk in at the gates of the University College, London, and take the first path to the left, push open the huge oaken doors, turn sharply to the right and open the first door to the left you will find yourself in the private laboratory of Professor William Ramsay, one of the two authors of the re cent important discovery that h\ addition to the long familiar oxygen and nitrogen, the atmosphere contains a third element which the discoverers have named "Ar gon." The large bottle that stands close to the retort, with a glass tube leading out of its neck, is the one. The bottle is half-full of water and half of argon. The argon is the half that looks as though it contained nothing. Any one can see for himself that it is argon insomuch as he cannot see any thing. When I walked in I found the professor in charge of a photographer. The discov erer of argon was trying, in response to many f...

CONFIRMATION AT PETALUMA. St. John's Episcopal Church Dedi cated—Odd Fellows Organize at Vacaville. VALLEJO, Cal., May s.— The cruiser Olympia is back at the yard again, looking as wrill as the day she started on her short cruise. Apparently the crew is as well con tented as on board any man-of-war. The date for again leaving has not been finally determined, but it is an actual fact that the Olympia will be made the flagship of the Pacific Coast, with present head quarters at Honolulu. But little is to be done to her while at the yard. She will coal up, and for this purpose requisitions have been made for large quantities of fuel. The monitor Monadnock and the crane bcow are both in the drydock, the former to be painted and the latter to be repaired, the work being carried on in an expeditious manner. The new...

2 INCOME TAX HEARING. Reargument Will Begin in the Supreme Court. MONDAY NEXT THE DAY. Only Two Attorneys Will Be Allowed to Talk for Each Side of the Case. OLNEY IS NOW INTERESTED. He Has Intimated That He Would Like the Opportunity of Pre senting Facts. WASHINGTON, D. C, May 0.-It is not known what time will be given to the re argument of the income tax cases, which are to be begun in the United States Su preme Court on Monday next. The order of the court granting the rehearing did not specify as to time, and the Chief Justice is quoted as having said since the order was made that the argument would be at length. On the first argument, about twelve hours' time, equivalent to three Supreme Court days, were given to the subject. Then three attorneys were heard on each side. The Chief Justice's order in the pres ent instance provides for the hearing of only two counsel on each side. It is there fore probable the argument will be extend ed over at least two days, and it is possible co...

Fears That the Blaze Will Cross the Clarion River and Wipe Out the Little Town. BRADFORD, Pa., May s.— The most de structive forest fires known in this section for years have been raging for the past week. About 3 o'clock this morning a fire started between Glen Hazel and Keltners. Dolliver's sawmill, located between these points, was soon destroyed, together with 10,000,000 feet of lumber, an engine-house, railroad switches, sixteen cars of lumber and coal, eight dwellings, an oil well and several thousand acres of timber land. A special train, consisting of a steamer and a large force of firemen, was sent from here to the scene of the conflagration. The firemen were unable to do anything but divert the course of the flames. Every thing in the woods is very dry and the leaves and underbrush furnish a...

RIVAL COMPANIES SHOOT Co. D. Fifth Infantry Regiment N. G. C. Again Defeated by Cook's Men. CRACK SHOTS AT SHELL MOUND. COOK Says He Will Put Up a Higher Soore for the San Rafael Warriors. Company D, Fifth Infantry, N. G. C, Captain William Elliott commanding, was again beaten yesterday at the Shell Mound range by Company B, First Infantry, Cap tain Irving B. Cook. The contest was the event of the day at the 200-yard range and attracted many spectators. Last December the friendly rivalry be tween these two organizations culminated in a challenge from the San Rafael com pany. Elliott somehow got it into his head that he had several crack shots in Company D and was given to boasting of the general high average of his men at Tine-shooting. Cook, though usually one of the most modest men that ever sported two bars, wished for an oakleaf, and was also prone to extol the valorous deeds of liis own command in putting out bullseyes. 60 it happened that in course of time the rival captains g...

LIVERMORE, Cal., May 6.— California has many fertile valleys and natural sani tariums, but none better than this section of Alameda County, known as Livermore Valley.
