XBW YORK, July 24.—Capt. Peter C.
Halm, shut up in Sing Sing for eight
year8 for killing William E. Annls, has
just perfected an invention which may

Jle has made improvements on hand

of the work and cost of cleaning streets.
So highly does the warden regard the
Idea that he has given the captain free
hand and all the men he needs to go
ahead nnd build carts and hand wagons
1 i the absorbing interest Inspired by his
new work the health of the prisoner Is
improving, and he ban lpss lo 'worry
Nothing wa* known of the invention
until Kugcne V L. Young of Long
Island City, counsel of the prisoner,
went to pee him yesterday. The purpose
of the visit was to go over the ques-

Mr. ^ oung found that the prisoner had
been placed In charge of the draughting
department of the sheet iron works in
which the carta and wagons used in trie
street cleaning of various cities of tho
Ftti e were made. This place was given
to him because he is by far the best
engineer now in the prison. In fact, he
wax an engineer of standing In the army
• years aao. and had invented h qoqi rate
mixer, now known as the. Hains con-
crete mixer, for which he has received
a royalty of about J5.000. So he gladly
turned his attention to the improvement
of the articles turned out by th. sheet

iced by the at rest cleaners nnd the wa-
gons used In hauling off the refuse from
the streets. In a short time he had
made improvements that surprised the
warden. New cart.; were made in the
lliif a of his drswir&s. and they were
fourd to b* a 1 hi claimed fir then;, it
is said. Then the warden, realizing
what had been accomplished, gave him
a free hand ind ail the men he wanted.
Soon these enrts will be turned out and
offered for *sale to those cities which
have bought their street cleaning ap-
paratus from the prison. They will
no only lessen the expense of keeping
streets clean, hut will add greatly to
the efficiency of the old methods.

WASHINGTON. July 24.—The hid
'jue&tion was settled and unsettled to
day and while there seems little doubt
that eventually hides will fall among
the unprotected articles on the tarifl
hill, the contest over their status can-
not be regarded as closed. When the
conferees adjourned for luncheon

cided that hides should go on the

Most of the time has been devoted to

could be no reduction on boots an<t

callers that he would insist upon a re-
