He had abandoned tho bench that ho might devote  his attertion to rich clients. He prospered as did no other attorney in Des  Moines. His prosperity was his undoing. Whilo on the crest of the wave he  became a "good"fellow," from which  he progressed rapidly on the downward road to oblivion and disgrace.  One by ono the corporations took their  business from him "and ultimately no  was reduced to the extremity of trying  an occasional case in the police court  in oider to eke out a miserable existence. Gradually he became unknown to  his former friends and little had. been  heard of him feu- years until his arrest.  His dramatic plea not to be put in jail  has touched the hearts ct many old  citizens who remember the splendor of  his former days.  Caillard's Squadron, Off Mitylene.  PARIS.

The Edinburgh Scotsman, a very  reputable paper, estimates the utmost  possible enrollment of the Boer forces,  from, first to last, at S5,000, and believes  there are not oyer 10,000 now in the  ���field. If. general Pearson's larger estimate of 30,000 men still fighting is correct it m earis that Dutch rcc-rui ts from  Cape Colony and Natal havo reinforced  , the republican armies to the .extent of  20,000 men or more. * r --;-,, - ,:  The Boers have never officially stated  their own losses. Kitchener has reported  nearly 12,000 men deducted from the  fighting"strength of the Boers'��� for the  nine months that ended on September  30th. last: The British government  claimed to hold about ,30,000 Boor prison ers a t th e end of -the first: fif teen  months- ot the war. According to British military reports about 1500 Boers  were killed in action, 3000 died of camp  diseases and 100G wore taken prisoners  hy. the Portuguese and sent to Lisbon in  the same fifteen months of fighting. This  accounts for -17,000 fighting Boers in all,  without allowing any to have been disposed of by voluntary surrenders, which  British reports put at 3000 un to January  1st, 1901. If there" are 10,000 Boers still  in arms, as the Scotsman estimates, the  total enrollment of the republican armies  from first.to last has been about 60,000  men. If the*Boer quartermaster-general  is correct in his larger estimate of 30,000  Boers still fighting, the total number  engaged in the conflict up to the present  time is 80,000.  The total population of the Transvaal  and the.Orange Free State when the war  began was 423,000. A liberal allowance  of capable fighting men would be one in  five of that total, which would give not  quite the S5,000 fighting total which the  Scotsman estimates. But the Dutch population of Cape Colony and Natal is at  1 oast 200,000, givingjinother .0.000_pos^  %i BI e���recri 1 i ts"f or"tlie~Boer ar mi es. Itls~  not therefore impossible that general  Pearson's larger estimate of 30,000 fighting Boers still in the field is correct.  elected seators, which, combined with  the 10 who hold over in the senate, assures the friends of Mr. Gorman a total  of 03 on joint ballot. The Republicans,  it appears, have elected 49 delegates and  G senators, which added to their 3 holdover senators gives them a' total of 5S  on joint ballot. These figures indicate  that the Republicans will be able to organize the house of delegates.  PHILADELPHIA, November 6. ���  Practically complete returns from the  state give Harris (Republican), for state  treasurer 52,260 plurality and Potter  (Republican) for supreme court judge  47,930 plurality. The. official totals  from the few counties in which the vote  is imcomplete tonight will not materially alter the foregoing pluralities. A  number of counties have not yet completed the returns of the vote on tho  proposed, constitutional amendment?}  providing for changes in the ballot law,  hut the figures received from two-thirds  of the state indicate that the amendments carried by a large majority, although the aggregate vote on this question fell far below that cast for the stat-3  candidates. The total vote cast in the  state will approximate $S50,000. The total vote last year was J.,173,210.   s:  MADE OFFICIALLY  CHANGE OF MANAGERS AT  THE LE ROI,  Carter to Have Rehearing.  CHICAGO, November 6.���Oberlin M.  Carter, now a convict in the government  prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas,  and formerly a captain in the United  States engineer'corps is to have a rehearing of his.-case in a civil tribunal.  He now has the assurance of the government authorities that all the evidence  is to be reviewed before judge Kohlsaat  in the United States circuit court in this  city, the hearing to take place probably  within a few months. Captain Carter  ���will be called on as a witness in his own  "behalf and for the purpose of testifying  in.court. He will be released temporarily from his place of confinement. This  is the result of suits brought by the government some months ago 111 the federal  courts for the purpose of recovering  .<?722,582> which it was proved at the  court martial Carter had embezzled from  the United States.

The fact that violent measures, such as mutilation, ^o  extort ransom were riot taken indicates  that the brigands are under the impression that the longer they wait, the better  will be the terms obtainable. This attitude is regarded as being partly due to  the publicity given lo the subscriptions  .towards the ransom, and it is increasing  the difficulties experienced by consul  general Dickinson in his efforts to reduce the brigands' demands.

The Westminster Gazette remarks:  "The New Yorker sei-ms at last to have  grasped that he has a citizen's responsibility for the good government of his  city. With a president who has declared  against tho spoils system, and a de-  Tammanyizeri New York, tho administrative outlook for tbo United States is  brighter than for a long time past."

PEKIN, November: C.���The doctors,  who visited Li Hung Chang last night  at 10 o'clock found him in good spirit.,  though extremely weak as the result or  sitting up and working in defiance ot  their instructions. When they called on  him today they found him unconscious-  and sinking rapidly. .It was annc-iini-i-l  at neon that Li Hung Chang could  hardly .live three hours longer.  PEKIN, November 7.���Li Hung Chang-  died ,at 11 o'clock this morning.    The  burial clothes had already been put on.  The courtyards of the yamen are filled  with life-sized paper horses and chairs  with  coolie bearers  which his  friends--  are sending in-accordance with Chinese- -  custom to bo buried with him iri ordor  to carry his soul to heaven.   Several of  the ministers of the powers have called  to express sympathy.   The Chines-, officials are somewhat uneasy concerning  the effect his death"will have on the populace, and to guard against a possible. ~  anti-*for.Ign demonstration the Chinese  generals   have   disposed   their   troop1?  about the city in such a way as to com-_  mand the situation.    Trouble, however,  is extremely probable.   The wife of earl  Li and his two sons and daughters wera-  with him.   Thoy are distressed. Chinese  ���  officials throng tho yamen.    Telegrams,  have been sent summoning prince Chine,  who is now on his way tc meet the court,.,  and Chou Fu, provincial treasurer, from-  Pao Ting Fu.    The former will, assume  the formal charge of govermental affairs,  and Uie latter will act as governor of  Chi Li until Li Hung Chang's successor,,  who will probably be Yuan Chi Kai, is  appointed. >'  Robert Coltman, an American, who  was one of Li Hung Chang's physicians,  told the correspondent of the' Associated Press that when he was called to  act with Dr. Velde of the German legation, No\ ember 1st, he found the patient  M-ey weak from severe hemorrhages du-.��  to ulceration of the stmach. "Tho .hemorrhage v as readily controlled," said Dr.  Coltman, "but owing to tho underlying  condition of chronic gastritis with poisonous rauspa only the mildest liquid  food could bo digestert. Yesterday he  was cheerful and without pain, but at 2  o'clock this morning he became unconscious and wsvs no longer able to get rid  of the collection of mncous which he hart  freely expectorated. Death was expected, "  owing lo the symptoms supervening  upon gradual carbonic acid poisoning."  Throughout the evening digitalis was  frequently administered. Earl Li's persistent refusal to refrain from attending  to government business aggravated his  malady, while,the refusal of his family  to permit certain measures customary  in western medical practice fe:r relieving  tho stomach contributed to hasten his  end.  =WASHINGT(0Nt=D=e^November-'3. ���  A cablegiam has been received at.the.  state department from minister Conger  at Pekin stating that Li Hung Chang is  dying. Tho death of this distinguished  Chinaman will not. it is believed he"-.*.,  affect the executions of undertakings  imposed upon China in tbe protocol.  Certainly the United States interests  will not bo involved directly, for all  that remains to be done at Pekin in  which our government is interested is  the preparation of trade and commercial treaties and their lines have been  so clearly marked that tlm. work-to be  dono Is almost mechanical and it is not  1'kely to be retarded by Li Hung  Chang's death.

The Tribune has outlined a plan, ol  redistribution of the seats in the provincial legislature. TI_�� plan as outlined  does not increase the present membership of the house, and it gives cities liko  Vancouver, Victoria,. New Westminster, j  Nanaimo, Rossland, and Nelson*a mem-i  her for each 5000 of 'population. This  would leave Victoria's representation as  it is (4 members), New Westminster and  Nanaimo as they are (one member each),  give Rossland and Nelson tiie representation of New Westminster .and Nanaimo  (that is, one member c;_.ch), and increase  Vancouver's represent-'.tion by one (that!  is, raise it from.foTtr to five.) This is  treating aU cities- on an equal basis,'  which cannot be. nnfair. Por farming  and mining districts lil<*e th ose on Fraser  river and on Vancouver Lslanvl and for  mining and farming <d_stri cts lilts those  of Kootenay and' Yale, the representation would be on.a basis o f one .member  for each 3500 cf: population.. This would  leave New Westminster di strict with its  four members and wculd g;ive Vancouver  Island a member for Victoria district,  one for Cowichan. one for Nanaimo, and  one for Comox. Yal-2 distri ct would have  five members, instead of three as .at  present, and East and'West Kootenay  would have six memo ers (besides  tho t.vc members frorr i the cities  of Nelson and Rossi: unci), which  would be a grain of !t.*wo. Tho  sparsely settled -and nnd .evoloped districts of tlie province, li: ica the West  Coast of Vancouver Islaa d, .Cassiar, .Car  iboo, and the Liillooets, would have representation on a basis of one member  .for each 1500 of population.   This would  leave   the   West   Coast   of   Vancouver  Island with one member, as it is at pres .-  ent; leave Cassiar with two members, as  at present; and leave three membc-.s for  Cariboo and the Lillooets, which would  be a loss of one.   This would give the  cities .18 members, the fraser farming  districts 4, the Island farming and mining districts 4, the farming and mining  districts of Yale 5, the mining districts of  Kootenay C. and the sparsely settled and  undeveloped   mining   districts   of   the  Island and the North 6. :.This would appear to he an equitable'redistribution of  the seats, as it would give all sections of  the, province, and all interests fair representation in the legislative assembly.  The ridings should be so bounded that  the people' of the riding would have as  near as possible identity  of interests.  It would be difficult .to make ridings in  Kootenay   and   Yale   districts   sc.   that  each' and   every' one   would   have  the  same population; but it would be unfair  to give 1500 people in one section a member, while another  section  would  only  have one member for 6000 people.   That  certainly would be-no fairer a basis of  representation than the present one, but  it ��� is  the  basis  that  some  people aro  clamoring for.   These people do not want  anything that is fair; but, instead, they  want something that is  unfair.    They  have .howled wildly for years, against the  unfair   representation   given   Esquimau  and  Victoria  districts,- and,   now  they  are howling just-as wildly-for unfair  representation for themselves.' One of  the wildest- of these howlers is ... M.  Keilie of Revelstoke; "who- was   West  Kootcnay's flrst member in the provincial legislature.   He was a member of tho  assembly whon the Semlin government  was dismissed.   He was one of tho members who signed that tripartite agreement with-Z'Joe" Martin, by which the  latter pledged himself to vote with tho  government, until a redistribution measure was passed.   Before that agreemenp  was signed, Mr.. Keilie insisted that .the  Boundary section of Yale dis'trict should  get a-member and that the additional  member for-West Kootenay niustigo to  the; Revelstoke riding., which would -be  divided into two ridings.   "Joe"' jumped  the traces and the agreement was worthless.   But had it been otherwise, Revelstoke riding with its 300?. peoplo would  now be represented in the provincial legislature by two members, while ridings  like southeast Kootenay and the' Slocan,  with 11,283' people would have had but  -_the=same_num beiuoLmembers.^^  is J. M. Kellie's idea of fairness,   Revelr  stoke and Golden ridings, had Mr. Kellie's scheme, been   carried   out,'-' would  havo had three members in the legislature to care for the. interests of 4941  people, while the 18,385 people in south-  past Kootenay, in   the  Siocan,   and  in  Nelson riding would have to be content  with three members.   Mr. Keilie cannot  claim that either Revelstoke or Golden  ridings havo undeveloped resources of  greater importance than the undeveloped  resources of either southeast Kootenay,  the Slocan, or Nelson ridings.   AU theso  five ridings are much the same in their  main   characteristics   and   natural   rc-  3 sources.   Outside of a few timber limit-  held for speculation,   on   which   not  a  soul lives, and the Big Bend mining district, in which there is less than 50 peo-  iple,   that   portion   of   East   and   West  Kootenay north of the main line- of tho  Canadian Pacific railway is an uninhabited' wilderness.    The towns and hamlets on the main line of the Canadian  ���Pacific from the summit of the Rockie3  to the summit of the Gold range are almost entirely dependent on lumbering  andJ railway work.   Their interests are  identical. The population of these terras  and .villages will not number 3000 in all.  Then why should   they  be  givon  two  members?    The towns and camps in the  I_ardcau and Trout   Lake and Windermere mining divisions have no identity  of interest with the towns and villages  on the main line cf the Canadian Pacific.    Their interests aro like those of  the towns   and   camps   farther  to tho  south.    And what is true of  East  and  West Kootenay   is   true   of Yale.    The  towns and villages along the main line  of the Canadian Pacific have nothing in  common with towns   like   Vernon   and  Princeton and Greenwood and Phoenix  and   Grand   Forks.

Mr. Kellie's ideas are given in  the appended letter:  REVELSTOKE, November 4.���To the  Editor-of The Tribune: A close scrutiny  of your forecasts of a redistribution  measure shows tip many startling, and  objectionable features. When you advocate 14 members for Yale-Kootenay district we cordially support the proposition, but when you propose throwing the  Revelstoke and Golden "ridings into one  will* one representative, and favor tbe  amalgamation of Kamloops and' West  Yale ridings with only ono re-presentar  tivei we have no hesitation "in stating  that, it is the supreme essence of unqualified double distilled gall. Following ou.  another theory advanced by The Tribune  that' 3154 of a population- should constitute a riding in Kootenay and Yale districts (outside of the big centers of population), thait principle applied to Lillooet,  Cariboo and Cassiar would only entitle  those; ridings to two members. ��� If "it  takes 3154 of a population to constitute  a riding in thickly set.cied portions of  Kootenay, the same should be applied  to Cariboo, Cassiar, Lillooet and Vaacou-  ver'Island. It is a poor rule that cannot  be universally applied to all sections of  the province. Cassiar, Cariboo and Lillooet with that principle in vogue would  lose four representatives and West Yale  and North Kootenay two, a loss of six  sctats north of a line drawn across the  mainland from east to west 100 miles  north of the boundary line, only leaving  four members to represent that enor4  mous area.

That section has  been coddled nnd nursed and have had  all the resources of the provincial and  dominion governments at tlieir Deck and  call for years to the neglect of other portions just as promising, just as rich in  mineral and destined to become just a3  populous when favored with transportation   facilities.

It is not  so long ago that tho whole of Kootenay  elected a member with 13 votes; West  Kootenay only polled 157 votes in 1890.

Kissing may he fatal. This is, of  course, the belief in a general way of  many modern enthusiasts in-the.field of  hygiene. At more or less regular intervals .the cry goes up that kissing is barbarous and unnecessary, that, a hand-  shako ought to satisfy "every exigency  of. human affection, and that the poets  ought to be deprived of the chief stock  in trade of the conventional sonneteer.  These campaigns, however, are usually  the outgrowth of theory. There are facts,  it now appears, which adorn the tale  with far more startling emphasis.*  It is not so many weeks ago that a  Chicago girl died from a kiss. Her lov.r  had an attack of scarlet fever. While  convalescent she went to see him. The^e  was little prudence in their manner of  greeting, and the next week the girl herself fell ill from the malady that had  been transmitted .to her through her  lover's lips. It was a tragedy in the end.  And tho girl's-parents successfully sued  ' tho incautious lover for heavy damage.?.  A single kiss has been known to cause  not one death alone, but many. A ley  years ago a whito woman, a waitress in  a restaurant at danger', near Salt Lake  City, permitted a negro to kiss her puo-  licly. Witnesses of the episode were so  *.-.* enraged that they commenced a five-  days' campaign against all the negroes;,  in the city, who,'of course, look the part,  of their colored comrade: Thirty-six  white men were either killed or wound-  nd, to say nothing of eighty-negroes,  and at the end of that time the waitress  astonished everbody by marrying her  colored lover., This by no means settled  matters, for the inegroes thereupon  joined forces with the white men, and  the newly married couple, only just succeeded in escaping from the city with  their lives.   ..  On two occasions kisses have cost the  lives of many brave soldiers. The beautiful duchess of Gordon in 1794 raised  the famous Gordon Highlanders by giving a thousand recruits a kiss and a  golden sovereign apiece. This method of  recruiting proved so successful that tho  . regiment was raised to its full strength  in a few days, and the duchess placed  her son 'in command. The men were  then sent out against the French, and  ���in-tlip-vpr-y-first-_l*iat.tle^in--which_-they_  took part more than 250 fell either killed  or wounded, so that it can be truthfully  said that they paid for the duchess's  kiss with their lives.  But prior tc this, in '171., a war was  brought about by a thoughtless kiss on  the part of a young Bavarian prince of  somewhat reckless character named  Ferdinand. During a visit to a neighboring state he inadvertently kissed a  beautiful member of the royal household, princess Thyra, ignorant of the  fact that she was already affianced and  that her betrothed happened to bo stand-  ing near and witnessed the incident.  High words ensued, followed by blows,  ..and a duel was arranged, which led i.o  diplomatic relations between the. two  nations being discontinued. Ultimately  a war broke out which, although ;t only  lasted barelv six weeks, resulted in the  demise of more than 1,000 men before  peace was finally declared.  One of the most fatal kisses ever  known was that given by a young Spanish sailor to his fiancee nine years ago,  for it brought about tne decimation of  si town.' The Madonna, a Spanish vessel, put into tho little seaport of Can-  tlalo, on the coast of Florida.-flying tho  yellow flag, and was accordingly ordered to remain in-quarantine, for more  than one member of the.crew exhibited  symptons of bubonic plague. But the  sailor in question disobeyed orders and  nut off in a boat for the shore one evening where, having sought out his fiancee ' whom he had not seen for some  ���vli'rs  he embraced her.  A fW davs later the effects of the  -ki��s becan:e painfully evident, though  Sf S"t returned to lus sh,P by  stealth the game night The girl sue  -cumbed to the plague J^c�� spread  through the town po rapidly tnat moie  than 200 persons &ffd out of a total  population of 3,500.  Secretary Long on McKinley.  Secretary of the navy Long writes' Jj)  ���-.the November Century of the persona).  ���charar.tetis.ltes of president McKinley,  with whom his relations were v?.y intimate. Mr. Long-says of the late president that he had no enojni.es. because  "he would not cherish enmity .>r mako  letilution.*"  "I   never saw  a  man  wilh  such aw  -even and unruffli-d temper. iDnring -tli-*  years in which 1 was with him, under  the strain of war, iu heat of the congestion of. closing congresses, under the*  pressure for place, .1 never heard him  utter an impatient word. He never  scolded nor whined. He never showed  irritation i-either at the cabinet board  nor, so far as I know..in separate conversation with its members."  Mr. Long likens the late president to  his great predecessor Lincoln in'many  ways. Lik& Lincoln ho was, he tells us,  accustomed to preface tho serious*  business of. the cabinet meetings with,  humorous anecdotes of fine quality. His  personal habits were extremely simple,  and uiiriHsiimiug. Mr. -Long r.poaks , of  him as tho "very ideal of serenity and  deliberation," and says that only once.  did-he see him in a state of nervous  excitement. That was during the events-  leading up to the Spanish war, which '  he mado every effort o avoid. His ex-;  citement manifested itself in his repeatedly sitting for a -moment then rising and sitting again.  It is Mr. Long's opinion that Mr. McKinley   met   greater   problem?,   of   ad- :  ministration than any other since Lincoln's time, and that on the -whole ho  was more fortunate  in  escaping bitter;*J  criticism   than   his   predecessors,,  a-ndi  notably more so than Lincoln. But we  must* no fcrget that Lincoln was at' th*  head;of a nation divided against itself,,  while "McKinley  was  the  chief magistrate of  a  united   people  waging war  of liberation   ..gainst   a   foreign   foe.���������  New York World.  Presidential Limitations.  For a president to accept an invitation to dinner is an impropriety. This  was the rule respected by Washington.  Adian.s and perhaps the other early  presidents. Frequent informal call:,  upon members of the cabinet were* only  deemed perfectly proper. But lat-jr  presidents have called upon and dined  with whoirisc.'Ver they have seen fit  For each member of the cabinet to  formally entertain the president and his  wife at dinner each winter has now become an established social custom.  The prtsident must not leceive any  but intimate -friends on Sunday. This  was another rule of the early days.  =Even--=today^=reasonable=eonsideratton.=  for the chief executive forbids disturbance of his Sabbath rest, and few officials pay him a Sunday call unless they  be upon tlie most intimate terms with  him.  The president never pays a first call  except upon the arrival of the head or  v. foreign slate in Washington. When,  president Dole of Hawaii and president  Iglesias of Costa Rica visited the capital a few years ago. president McKinley paid the first call upon each. Happily they were quartered at hotels Had  they been guests at legations of their  countries a social complication might  have arisen.  The president must not nr-t.pr any foreign embassy or legation. This is au-  ether unwritten law. The official residence of an ambassador or minister accredited to Washington is foreign territory, technically if rented, but actually if owned by its government.  It is considered improper for the  chief exfcutive to go aboard a foreign  warship, even when anchored in our  harbor, and flying tlie colors of a  friendly state. Every nail and splintor  of such vessel is considered foreign  territory.  A president of the United States  must not make a formal call upon any  one except a president-elect, an ox-  president, a president, of a foreign state  or a reigr.ing monarch visiting our capital. This is an ancient law laid down  in Washington's* time.  .  Carnegie Declined a Baronetcy.  LONDON, Nov. 6.--Th<!

It  seems that the postmaster is not at fault. ���  as the following letter goes to show; \  but his letter shows that the officials,'  who make the postal arrangements for.  this country are a set of blockheads:  To the Editor of The Tribune: My"  attention has been call'ed to an-article  in your issue of the .th instant, in .vhich .  you make charges regarding ' the' for-'  ���warding of mail from this office to Nel-.  son, Avhich are not founded on facts. This  office makes up a direct pouch daily for  Rossland but for no other point in British Columbia, in which is placed mail  for Nelson and air other Kootenay  points. The only other way we can  ���send it is? to place it on the south-bound  pouch of the Northport & Spokane Railway Company, in which it would be carried to Spokane, and there pouched  back on the return trip the following  <iay, causing a delay of IU hours, according to your statement of arrivals of  tiairis in Nelson. The railway postal  clerks do not go north of this place, but  return to Spokane the samo day. Had  you made inquiry of the postmaster ax.

As Mrs. De  Wet seemed unable to understand hint,  tho officer placed a dozen egg's in a circle on the table with a half crown in the  middle. The eggs, he explained, pointing to a portrait of De Wet on the wall,  was her elusive husband. It was an excellent object-lesson and it was perfectly  successful. "I see," said the simple  Dutchwoman, in excellent English. "But  where is De Wet?" And the half crown  had disappeared!���London Chronicle.  BRIEF   CANADIAN   TELEGRAMS-  TORONTO, November 6.���M.

A Slot Machine Restaurant  Tho automatic buffet at Earl's Court  seems to be the first step toward the  disestablishment of the barmaid and tho  v/aiter. Hebe is replaced by a wonderful contrivance, tlie ne plus ultra of the  penny-in-the-slot system, which takes,  your money and fulfils your order with  neatness and dispatch. It does not smile  or thank you, and you cannot flirt with  it; but, on the other hand it docs not  expect a tip. All the customer has to do  is to propitiate the gold in thc machine  witli the requisite penny or pennies, and  straightway he gets the cup of tea or  coffee, the lemon-squash, the sandwich,  the slice of cake or the bread and butter,  or -whatever else ho may want to cat out  of the dozens of eatables and drinkables  that are displayed for his choice. If ha  prefers some!..tea-!'brewed to his own  taste he puts,.fourpence in the slot and  takes out a little tray with a supply of  sugar ahd cream and dry tea in a pot  ready for infusion with the boiling water  from an adjacent tap. For the present  the buffet is conducted on teetotal principles, but the invention can also be relied upon to measure out strong liquors  with the steadiest hand. ��� London  Truth.         ���_  Almost 30,000 Majority.

MONTREAL, November 6.���At the  morning session of the Manufacturers'  Association it was decided to ask the  government to make changes in the tariff giving increased protection to woolens, shirts, collars, lumber, oatmeal and  agricultural, implements. The association also decided not to continue subscriptions to the Labor Gazette published by the government, as its tendency  was against employers in favor of employees. The association decided to recommend to the government that tho  publication be modeled on the plan of the  United States labor bulletin and that it  only be issued quarterly.
