'Though there is u rule in the Brit
Ish Jinny noout the sustaining power
of ice," explained an army officer,
"there Is no such a rule in our aruiv
regulation, though the engineers have
a formula which covers the matter.
Their formula in brief, is that ice
three inches thick will sustain 100
pounds to tho square foot; four inches
will sustain a column of infantry and
five inches artillery. In Central Park
New York, and Druid Hill Park, Bal
timore, skating is never allowed until
the ice Is three inches thick on the
lakes. I ho same rule Is observed in
other skating parks. Ice two inches
thick is safe enough for a man to skate

1h depended upon for parks where
great crowds gather Ten inches o!
ice will told up any weight that cau
be put upon it, as far as people are
concerned. Railway trains have been
run on the St. Lawrence river on fif
ecu inches of ice wiibout the slightest
suspicion of danger. There have been
number of horse races and carnivals
on the muison river on ten-men ico,
One of the best races of the kind 1
ever saw was on the Potomac about
thirtv-seven years ago, in which a
half dozen holies engaged, and tlious
ands of persors stood along the course
and watched it, and the ice was not
over nine Inches and a half thick. In
lSf6 when the Potomac broke its freez
ing record, there were i.nndreds win
drove wagons and carnages on tno ice
from here as far dowu as Mount Ver
non, and teams crossed the river at
vnanv noints. It was over thirteen
inches thick and lasted two vceks."-
Washington, D. C. (Sic5a!). The
following dispatches have been received
at the Navy Department:
"Manila, Feb. 24, 1S99.
"For political reasons the Oregon
should be sent here at once.

Mr. Giffen is dispatch agent of the

miral Dewey asking for the Oregon was
received with surprise by the officials
here. No one knew, or at least would
admit that ho knew, the nature of the
political reasons why the admiral de
manda the immediate presence to tho
The cablegram was taken before the
cabinet and fully discussed. The ad
miral, it is said, possibly feels that the
moral euect of the presence of the big
ehip on tho insurgents themselves, and
patricularly upon the larger element
among tho Filipinos that is believed to
be restrained with difficulty from join
ing fortunes with Anginaldo, with
whom their sympathies lie, would be
good. But there is an underlying
doubt whether or not the admiral may
not be keenly sighting a gathering
cloud in tne East ana is looking to the
prevention of auy possible intervention
or interference by European powers in
the struggle now in progress in tho
neighborhood of Manila. It is believed
that in tho big fires much property of
foreign residents and business concerns
was destroyed. That these flames were
caused by the insurgents cannot be de
nied, and it ma be that some of the
foreign naval commanders in the East
aro disposed to seize upon the pretext
that their interests demand protection,
which we cannot afford them, to make
a landing, or do something obnoxious
to the United States and likely to en
courage the insurgents.
The cabinet gave some attention to
Admiral Dewey's message about send
ing the Oregon at once to Manila, lhe
Department reached the conclusion
That too much importance should not
be attached to it; that Dewey wants
tho big ship to influence the Filipinos
through fear. Secretary Long when
asked for an explanation of the refer
ence to politican reasons in the dis
patch said: "I am sure that it has co
international significance. You may
state that positively. Probably he wants
a fine ship there as the American com
missioners are about due and it will

Manila (By Cable) Thursday morn
ing the enemy commeuced worrying
tactics at various rarts of the American
line, apparently for the jnrpoe of
withdrawing attention from affairs in
side tho city. An attempt was made to
rust through our extreme left near
Caloocan, but it was promptly checked
by a hot and effective muaketry and
artillery fire. In the meantime small
bodies of rebels, evidently some of
thce engaged in the cowardly work al
londo, spread out between the city and
the outposts. Every available man was
sent to drive them away, with the re
sult that there was a desultory firing
all the morning. From 8 to 10.30a. m.
the United Slates double turrett moni
tor Monadnock joined in the engage
ment, hurling ten-iuch shells over the
American lines into bodiea of the enemy
as indicated by the signal corps. So
far our casualties are one man kiled and
ten wounded. At 11 o'clock there were
sharp engagements at the Chinese oemr

from both positions drove the enemy

retired to their apartments and did not
take part in the procession or it the
funeral ceremonies, though they heard

Freight Cars by the Thousands.
Last year the contracting car-bulld-
Ing companies did the greatest busi
ness that they have done since 1S90.
The total number of freight cars built
during the last calendar year was 09,
609, the passenger cars were G99, and
the street railroad oars 4,650, or a total
of 105,1 uS. In 1890, the best year so
far as our records show, tha output
was 103.000 freight cats, but in 1S91
and 1S92 nearly 100,000 were Tjuilt
each year. The Increase of 1898 over
1S97 Is quite wonderful. In that year
sur reports are from thirty contractors
(and five estimated) showed 43,588
freight caTs. This year our reports
are from twenty-eight companies, and
from twcuty-slx others we have made
bstiaiates carefully checked. These
are mostly very small concerns. In
1S9C the freight cars built outside of
the railroad shops amounted to 51,189.
in 1S95 to 38,100, and in 1894 they ag
gregated only 18,000. Among the cars
reported this year we find 1.6G3 built
for export; of these, 330 were street
cars. In making this summing up of
car building last year we found 2,10'

. Thursday afternoon the enemy's
sharpshooters were very active about

attention to the three gun battery u sar

provement in the rebels' marksman

and three others were wounded. One
man was killed. The fire was so strong
that during the night the headquarters
were removed to a church a few hun

The Secret of Success as a Writer.
The way to write is first to have
something to say, and then say it as
well as yon can. That is all there is
about it. If what you say is something
which the world wants to hear, an ed
itor will find it out quick enough when
you send him the manuscript So far
as "a chance to be heard" is concerned,
there is plenty of chance? The ques
tion is: Have you something worthy of
a chance? That you can only find out
by sending your manuscripts to ed
itors. "Influence" counts for nothing
in a magazine office; the only thing
that "counts" is what there is in. a
manuscript. Edward Bok in the March
