ALBAST, May Hill signed the capitol appropriation bill and Hied the following memorandum with it: -This bill appropriates a total som of for work upon the capital, and creates a commission consisting of tbe lieutenant governor and the state engineer and surveyor, who is associated with the capitol commissioner. Perry, in tbe con- trol of the work. There is no objection to the amount appropriated, except that it is insufficient. By the terms of the bill a large share of the money is required to be used indispensable repairs, in furnishing parts of the building already completed, and in effecting necessary alterations in portions constructed yean ago before Commissioner Perry was erer appointed, leaving only a balance of 175 toward the legitimate progress of completion of the capitol. The amount ia only applicable towards the construction of the western staircase from the second to the third floor and for work npon the corridors adjoining that staircase on the first and second flours. "It will be seen that tbe amount actually appropriated ia wholly inadequate towards accomplishing very much towards the substantial completion of the capitol. The construction of a single staircase, and only one story of it each year, is an unbus- inesslike performance, and it is character- istic of the methods which have been pur- sued by the legislature ever since IS84. The capitol should be completed at the earliest possible time. The needs of the state, in the interest of true economy, and the natural pride of our citizens, all unite 'n demanding chat the capitol of our state ihould no longer remain in an unfinished condition. No good business man would conduct his own private affairs as the leg- islature has managed the work upon capitol during many years. The selection again of a commission to be associated with Commissioner Perry is to be regret- ted, and that portion of the bill is re- garded as objectionable. There is no ob- jection to the personnel of the commission, bat any commission whatever is unneces- esaary." The Valkyrie Will Not Ram. _NEW YORE, May New York Yacht club has just received a letter from the Earl of Duaraven, the owner of the English yacht Valkyrie, which sets at rest all speculation with regard to an national race for this season. He gays tt is absolutely impossible to race for the America's cup under tbe present deed of gift and expresses regret that the New York Yacht clnb refuses to recede from position taken in the matter. Lord Dunraven in another letter declines an in- vitation extended by Stephen Peabody of this city to bring the Valkyrie here and enter her in private races. He saya he annot afford to give up the racing at home to engage in private matches here. President Andmoa'i Will. ROCHESTER. N. Y.. May will of .he late President Anderson of the Univer- sity of Rochester was admitted to probate yesterday. After providing for an annuity of tfiOO a year to Joseph G. Gilbert and (600 a Euretta D. Gilbert of Newton, El., the will bequeaths the remainder of the estate if to the University of Rochester orporation, "for the sole use and benefit Df said university forever." The instru- ment is dated Feb. only a few days efore the testator's death. For several weeks Tim Smith noticed a large alligator, whose i back was filled with and I long green mots. The alligator was never known to demonstrate any fear, and would not get out of waj under any consideration, allowing him to row rather close toward him. Becently, when Smith started for town, he put a Winchester rifle in his boat for the express purpose of giving his 'gatorehip a load of cold lead. When opposite Buzzard Island the al- ligator reappeared, and, rowing to within easy range, Smith fired five shots at the saurian, all of which seemed to take effect, for the alligator made a terrible flutter in the water, and turned over on its back. Three days later Smith found the dead alligator Coating near by, arid, tying a rupe about its head, lowed it to the Edgewater grove, when the alli- gator was found to measure 16 feet 3f inches in length, two bulk having en- tered thfe skin just back of the head.

Bill and tbe LJM Both A large lynx made a visit to Bill Kelts cabin on the Emerald and made a lengthy fact, Mr. Lynx U there yet The animal was attracted by some meat that was hanging out side the door of the cabin. There was no lock or bolt to secure the openilfe-. and while it was climbing up to reach the meat the door swung open and al- lowed the lynx to UouiiUer in. where he proved a genuine surprise party to BilL who was whiling awav the hours by reading tiger stories. It was hard to tell which was the most surprised the lynx or the man. but the former evidently thought Bill meant business when it saw him reach for the ax, aud at once made a spring. For several minutes they fought at close quarters, and at last Bill broke away from the beast aud climbed up on the sleeping buuk, where he could get elbow room to swing his weapon On came the lynx, but missed his footing This was Bill's time. As the animal made another spring for the bunk, the ax was swung aloft and the pole was brought down on the skull of the ani- mal with the usual -dull, sickening thud." The lynx dropped in a heap and Bill came down from his perch to find that his blow had smashed the skull. The animal was stone dead. Keffs clothes were torn to tatters, and he says the lynx weighed 150 pounds.
