With the Alumni of the Bie: Eastern
Polytechnic Institute.
And Bide Through the Famous Iron Tun
nel, Feasting on the Train.
Cinders to the right of them, cinders to
the left of them, cinders in their eyes, ears,
hair and nostrils, cinders all over them, held
in place by a thin scum of oil; while in
their heads yet rang thj sounds of steam
whistles, heavy hammers and the muffled
roar of the rolling mill. Nevertheless the
victims appeared thoroughly pleased. Such
was the experience of the members of the
Bensselaer Polytechnic Institute alumni
as they concluded a second day's sightseeing
among the leading industrial establishments
in and around this city.
The excursion party left the Pittsburg
and Lake Erie depot yesterday an hour
earlier than on the previous morning. One
hundred and seventeen persons were on
board the train, which was in charge of
Captain Erwin when it puffed out of the
railroad yards. The air was rawand chilly,
and, as quite a number had got up a little
before breakfast time, they were about as
happy as Mugwumos.
Breakfast on board train restored their
serenity, and, when the first visit of the day
was made at Chambers' glasshouse,
of wisdom-seekers that was suddenly poured
in upon the window glass workers. The
various parts of the house were duly visited
and admired.
The train then ran to the American Iron
"Works (Jones & Laujjhlin), where a second
stop was made The shafting department in
this mill created the most interest. No
souvenirs of the inspection were carried
away by the members, except a few daubs
of grease on long winter overcoats.
The iron tunnel on the P., McK. & Y. E.
It., through which the party was traveling,
was a source of much interest to the engi
neers and railroad men on board. Thi3
uniqne tunnel is under Jones & Laughlins'
mill, and has already been described in The
At Homestead a visit was paid to the
mammoth steel works of Carnegie, Phipps
& (Jo. .Lunch was served on the train,
while the run between Homestead and
Braddock was made. It was ample and de
licious; all that was required in that part of
the programme.
At 2 o'clock the party arrived at the
Edgar Thomson Bteel "Works, in Braddock.
Its ponderous machinery and wonderful
mechanism, strange sights and sounds, were
even a surprise to men who are daily accus
tomed to expect anything.
"It is certainly a strange and wonderful
place, your city." said an Eastern railroad
official to the reporter, as he left the mill.
Captain Jones, with his genial smile and
little hat, met the party here, and insisted
on honoring the occasion. He varied his
duties by first driving a cart drawn by an
objecting mule and then offering to give the
party a iocomotive. A photographer bobbed
up serenely, and pictures had to be taken.
The only sun of the day even enjoyed the
sight and beamed down upon the faces of
the group until tears ran down their cheeks.
These tears were neither of grief nor of joy,
but of necessity. The little man with the
photographic apparatus, who has a contract
to take 100 pictures, even if the last five
have to be his own, pressed the button on
the weeping throng several times before he
was noticed.
At the National Tube "Works, in Mc
Keesport, the various departments were
visited, and the process of pipe making was
demonstrated by practical examples. The
last stop of the "day was made at Oliver &
Roberts' wire and "rod mill, on Tenth street,
Southside. The works, one of the party said
(he was sober at the time), reminded him of
an aggravated attack of Old Monongahela.
The party arrived in the city at 5 o'clock.
The Rensselaer Polyiecbniclnstitnfe Alnmnl
Give a Succetaful Banquet at the Itlonon-
enhcla House.
The winter reunion of the Rensselaer
Polytechnic alumni was closed last evening
with a banquet at the Jlonongahela House.
One hundred and ten members and guests
were seated at a table arranged in the form
of a horseshoe. Toast Master "William
Metcalie, of the class of '71, occupied the
seat at the head of the table. On his right
hand was seated Mr. James Hall and on his
left, Mr. "W. H. Body, the patriarchs of the
At the conclusion of the supper the grad
uates for a time amused themselves by
singing old-college songs and giving their
class yells and the Rensselaer Institute yell.
Order was finallv secured, and Mr. Edmund
Yardley, of the class of '56, made an address
of welcome. Mr. James Hall responded to
the toast of the R. P. I. He was enthusi
astically cheered when introduced, and his
health drank by the guests. In his re
marks he said he became a student
at the school in 1830, just eight years after
its organization. The institute was the first
mechanical school established in tbe coun
try. It also ranks among tbe oldest agri
cultural schools. Mr. Hall said bis life
work as a geologist bad lead him away from
following the history of the graduates of
the school and he now regretted tbe fact
The summer session of the institute was the
foundation of the now popular summer
school of sciences. He closed by thank
ing the gnests for the honors which had
been couierred upon him by the graduates
Mr. J. Becker responded to the toast, A. S.
C. E., with a few pleasant remarks. Otfer
toasts were responded to by Mr. J. H. Peck,
President of the school; Mr. "W. P. Mason,
of '84; Mr. C. "W. H. Searles, of '60; Mr.
George A. Just, of '81; Mr. E. Holbrook,
Mr. V. Doughty, of '88; Mr. E. J. Jarrett,
of '89. and Mr. "W. A. B. Starr, of '69. Mr.
Clark Fisher, ot '58, formulated the resolu
tions. The banquet concluded at an early hour
this morning, and the reunion was ended.
Slick Schemers Who Were Ready to Slake
. Brazilian Bills.
New Toek, February L A man named
Charles Miller came from Brazil to Brook
lyn some months ago, and pretended that
his object was to purchase some machinery.
He had in his possession Brazilian bills
which could easily be counterfeited, and
Miller's plan, as alleged, was to make all
the money necessary and flood Brazil with
the bogus stuff. Miller formed the ac
quaintance of Asa A. Packer, a wall paper
manufacturer, and he let him -into the
scheme, as he could purchase the proper
kind ot paper without exciting suspicion.
They made the acquaintance also of John
Simpson, a printer, and a man named Mar
shall, a photographer.
These men held secret meetings in South
Brooklyn. The police learned of their
plans, however, and kept a sharp watch on
them. The original bills of tbe Brazilian
Government were photographed,, and fine
negatives were taken, so that everything
worked well ior the counterfeiters! The
police, fearing that thev would get away
with their outfit if further delay was made,
arrested allo them late last night. The
entire outfit, consisting of negative, plates,
bills and paper, were seized.

The Great Wells and Lofty Tunica That
Serve Tovnii Throughout the West.
Gbeensbtjkg, Kxx., February 1. One
of the freaks of "Western enterprise
ts the city water works 4 for the
new-born city. "Whenever a county
seat is definitely located in a new
county there is a great dash for public im
provements. They must have a grand
schoolhouse, a grand county building, and
then they must'have the town supplied with
water at"public expense. A description of
the system in this place will show how hun
dreds of villages are supplied on the plains
of the "West.
There was, of course, no stream or lake
suitable for the purpose, andthe sole re
course was in a well. Accordingly a well
was dug. It is 30 feet across and 102 feet
deep. It was sunk through alternate layers
of sand and clay to that depth belore a suffi
cient stream of water free from alkali was
reached. It was then walled up with stones
laid in cement.
Having obtained the water, the next
thing was to distribute it. To do tbis a
huge derrick was erected above the well,
and on ton of the derrick was placed a tank
holding 78,000 gallons. The surface of the
water in the tank is ordinarily about 112
feet above the surface of the prairie on
which the town is built. Two steam pumps
of 80-horse power each were put into an en
gine house on the ground, two being pro
vided so that an accident to one would not
leave the town helpless.
The village thev call it a city here is
said to have 1,500 inhabitants. The people
do not exaggerate more than 50 per cent.
The daily consumption averages about
16,000 gallons.
To dig the well and provide the plant, in
cluding the mains in the streetscost $47,000.
The annual expense is about $2,400, or 41
cents per 1,000 gallons of water for operating.

Poet Towusend, Wash. T., February
1. The steamer Aucon has just arrived
from Alaskan ports, with letters and news

A Bible School That Sends Collections
HI ore Than Compass Points.
The Fourth Avenue Baptist Church Bible
School presents the following highly grati
fying report:
The report for the four months ending De
cember 30 shows an average attendance of 214;
largest attendance, 264. The Treasurer's report

mission, $25; associatirmal missions, (64; home
missions, 63; Baptist Orphanage, 20: publica

It Was Shot as a Ghoat and Then Mistaken
for a Dead Man.
Chicago, February 1. City Treasurer
Herman Plautz has lost his menagerie,
which, as told exclusively in TheTJis
fatch, he drew in a raffle about a month
ago. It will be remembered that when Mr.
Plautz took his prizes home. in a back there
was a circus as well as a menagerie.
Most of Mr. Plantz's olothes were forcibly
removed by the bear, and the monkey, es
caping up the front ot the building, caused
a cry of burglars and the calling out of the
patrol. Afterward Mr. Plauts tried to give
his bear away, and several times it escaped
from his house and terrified the neighbor
hood. Three nights ago the bear escaped again,
and then the region of Hyde Park, in which
Mr. Plautz lives, was disturbed by stories
of another ghost wandering around streets
and vacant lots. Monday night a police
man saw the ghost and shot at it. Yester
day afternoon an excited resident of Hyde
Park rushed into the police station and an
nounced, that a corpse was lying in a vacant
lot not far from the Stobey mansion. The
police hastened to the spot in a patrol wagon.
Sure enough, under a big oak tree, wrapped
in a white sheet, lay what was apparently
the corpse of a man, with only a little
bunch of coarse black hair sticking out at
the top of the head. The police turned the
bouy over, and, to their astonishment, un
covered a dead bear. Around its neck was
a large leather collar, with a silver plate
bearing the name of Mr. Plautz. The officer
who shot -the ghost on that eventful night
killed Plautz's bear, which in foraging
about had managed to get the sheet off a
clothesline. The monkey is also dead, the
poor little beast having caught pneumonia.

Great Inventory
We shall commence our laborious task of stock-taking February 1
and as this seems to be a season for reductions we intend the few days
remaining to us before stock-taking to
by offering everything, yes everything, at a price which will not only
astound' everybody but beat anything within the "recollection of the
oldest inhabitant" We intend that our customers shall every day this
week reap the richest harvest of bargains ever known. The reductions
we have made are greater than anyone outside our store has any idea of;
we have not marked down prices in solitary or isolated places, nor yet
on any particular grades of goods, but wherever the eye can see, in every
department, will be found Teduced prices, reduced to such an extent
that nothing whatever remains of anywhere near the original figures. If
some sales are greater than others then this sale of ours is the greatest
of 'em allj We've marked down every article and garment to a price
which you'll wonder at, to a price which will cause everyone who ascer
tains them and finds out the quality of the goods offered to be astounded.
We haven't a single thing in our store but what is a bargain greater even
than you think. Now, if you want anything we offer and want it cheaper
than you've any idea of come and. see us as early as you can.
