Say the Dam Was
BY MEREST NOVICES
Any Practical Engineer
Have a Hand in the
Building of It?
HOW THE WORK WAS DONE.
TBT ASSOCIATED TKESS.:
.New Yobk, June 11. The Engineering
2scics will publish in its forthcoming issue
the following results of a survey and exam
ination of the Johnstown dam, and of in
quiries in Johnstown and Pittsburg, by
hich various facts not yet made pnblic
The first break in the dam occurred in July,
1S62, and was caused by a defect in the culvert
through which two-feet discharge pipes were
carried for letting out water from the bottom
of the reservoir. This break did comparatively
little damage, the discharge having been quite
slow, wholly from the bottom, and choked from
time to time by the fall of material from above.
It carried out only about half as much material
from the dam as the last break, or about 50, WX)
cubic yards. Enough of the dam remained to
make a little pond about eight feet deep above
the dam. which stayed unused until in May,
1S75, the property, consisting of somewhat over
BOO acres, was sold to Congressman John Eeilly.
The lake Itself was 400 acres in size, not aslarge
as has been reported.
When the CInb Took Hold.
After holding the property unused until 1S79,
Mr. Reilly offered it to the late Colonel B.F.
Buff, an old and successful railroad and tunnel
contractor and the originator of the South
Fork Fishing and Hunting Club, for the sum
of $2,000. Colonel Ruff interested two other
fc Fittsburc gentlemen in the project, and stated
9r ... .l.w .1,... .1,,. tlM a.M.li4 tut ,..........,..
for not over $1,500. and that he would take the
contract to do it for $1,700. We have this and
the following facts on the most unimpeachable
authority. On this basis the club was organ
ized, and for some time these three gentlemen
were the only persons in it. No one of them is
now connected with it. Colonel Ruffs idea had
been to reconstruct the dam much lower, only
40 feet high, but it soon appeared that to cut
down the spillway or waste weir, which is
through rock, would cost more than to recon
struct the dam to its original height, and, by
the time this had been done, the total expendi
ture, as shown by the pay rolls, had been
slightly over $10,000. or abent 20 cents per cubic
There still remained the work of riprapping
the slopes and other miscellaneous worn, as to
which our information is less precise, being
only that it "may" have cost $7,000, but not
more; fringing the total cost up to the very
small figures of $17,000, which havo been
given on other authority in newspaper dis
patches. This work was all done in the summer
of 1SS0. The original dam was estimated to
cost $183,000, and actually cost nearly 240,000.
Not a Practical Engineer nt All.
Colonel Ruff engaged as foreman and super
intendent for this a Mr. Pearson, a cousin of
the present Mayor of Allegheny City. It is the
general impression around Johnstown and
Pittsburg, among those who know anything
about it. that Mr. Pearson was the "engineer"
of the repairs, but this is incorrect. He has
never been an engineer, but after 1880 was em
ployed in the local freight department of the
Pennsylvania Railroad, at Pittsburg, until be
formed his present connection, which is with
the firm of Haney & Co.. general teamsters for
the Pennsylvania Railroad freight department.
we were aiso torn dv some tnat joionei uutt

So far as we can ascertain by diligent inquiry
he not only was never an engineer,
but he had never been engaged be

I The Work of Reconstruction Careless.
I Information gathered for us by Mr. T. S.
1 Miller, M. R, of the Lidgerwood Manufactur-
!ing Company, corresponds with that gathered
by us from other reliable sources, that the work
of reconstruction was done with the slight care
which these facts make -probable. The old
' material which had caved in was left un
touched; the top of the dam was worked down
onto it; the old pipes and culvert, which still
remained in a somewhat injured condition,
were covered over with earth and permanently
closed, a double row of hemlock plank sheet
piling being driven across the old channel.
There was no careful ramming in watered
layers. Leaking during the process was great,
and some tons of hay and straw were filled in
to stop it. The dam was finally made fairly
tighr, but always leaked at the bottom, and
of late years the leakage had been in
creasing. The original crest beight of the
dam was decreased from 1 to 3 feet, and
the spillway was shortly after obstructed, with
gratings to'retain fish, and a trestle bridge built
across the opening. The spillway was ob
structed (1) by a sill about 2 inches high; (2)
by an iron nshcuard 18 inches high, composed
of half-inch rods 1J inches apart, or Jiiuch in
the clear, or close enough to readily catch
leaves and fine brush; (3) by an 8 by 8 inch
stick floating corner wise, sliding vertically on
a rod at each end, and armed with closely
driven nails to keep fish from jumping over;
(4) by the posts o'r the trestle bridge closing
about 6 per cent -of the opening! and (5) at the
time of the break by a ragged piece of drift 10
feet long and 2 feet in diameter.
Slight flare Averted the Dinaster.
Had the bridge and all its obstructing at
tachments been cut away in time, the disaster
might possibly have been averted.
We have investigated carefully the various
specific reports that the dam was periodically
o'r occasionally inspected by engineers, but find
no evidence that it was ever inspected and ap
proved, even once, by any engineer commis
sioned for that purpose who by any stretch of
rharity wouldbe regarded as an 'expert. A
few inspections by local or Junior engineers
have from time to time been made, spme ap
proving' but none of either kind came from
sources which would command much weight
111 the profession. The Teport that certain
Pennsylvania Railroad engineers reg
ularly inspected the dam is de
nied by a number of officers
who should know, and is unquestionably with
out foundation. The dam was a contractor's
aam. Engineers baa nothing to do either with
lis construction or its maintenance. Mr. J. 8.
Parks, it is trne, who was in charge of the
efforts to save the dam, was an engineer by ed
ucation, but he is a very young man, only a
year or two out of college, and did about all
that could have been done except to clear away
Tovalse the whole area of the lake ten inches
per hour, which is the reported rate before the
flood, required an accumulation of only 4,023
feet per second, and that much more spillway
capaclty-wpuld bave saved the break. Two
feet pioj-e height of crest would have given it.
Tnengln the crest was therefore the immedi
ate destroying agency."

ISrECIAL TXLKGBAX TO TUX DISPATCH.!
Habrisbcbg, June H. Governor Beaver's
plan to raise $1,000,000, if necessary, for the
purpose of clearing the streams and abating
public nuisances which threaten the health
and safety of the people in the districts devas
tated by the late floods Is receiving hearty In
dorsement To-day he was in receipt of numer
ous telegrams from prominent men offering to
become his sureties in the sum of $5,000 each,
and he can just as easily have 2,000 names on
the guarantee bond as the 200 specified. Mayor
Fitler telegraphed to-day that at least 90 gen
tlemen in Philadelphia had called uponhim and
signified their cheerful willingness to attach
their names to the honorable mil of 200.
Telegrams were received from A. Louden
Snowdeu, of Philadelphia; General Wm. Lily, of
Mauch Chunk; Senator Delamater, of Craw
ford: Rev. 8. L. Flood, of Meadvllle; Samuel
femall. of York; S. L. Brown, of Wilkesbarre;
S. C. Hollar, of Sbippensburg, and others,
whoso names the Governor could not recall at
the time. William Potter, of Philadelphia, not
only signified his desire to be one of the 200, but
sent his individual chock for $5,000 as bis share
of the loan. Thus the Governor is encouraged
in his plan, which he now proposes to carry out
without any unnecessary delay.
A Possible Illicb In the Plan.
Among those who signed the bond to-day
were Attorney General Klrkpatnck, Secretary
of the Commonwealth Stone, Colonel Thomas
Potter, Colonel Alexander Krumbacher and
General J. P. S. Gobin, who happened to bo at
the capitoL '
State Treasurer Hart, who is under bond of
$500,000, is reported unwilling to make any ad
vances, nnless fortified by an opinion from the
Attorney General. It was learned to-night
that he has asked Attorney General Klrkpat
nck for an opinion as to bis power to advance
the money of the State as proposed in Gov
ernor Beaver's'plan. He fears there may be a
constitutional hitch somewhere, and wants to
be perfectly sure that he is right before he
goes ahead. He particularly desired to know
whether the bond in question can be enforced
against the signers in the event of a failure on
the part of the Legislature to make an appro
priation. Subsequently it was stated that the
Attorney General had called upon the State
Treasurer and talked over the matter with
him. It is not known what assurances were
given, but it is intimated that there will be no
serious trouble in the premises.
Some changes were made in the original
draft of the bond to-day to meet the views of
the State Treasurer. The third condition,
which prondes that the liability of each signer
snail do lor a pro rata snare 01 woaiever
amount may be expended by the Governor,
was amended to read thus:
Amendments Have Been AddeJ.
"Except in case of the death, insolvency,
inability to pay, or removal from the State of
one or more of the guarantors. In which event
all shall bo severally liable for their pro rata
share of such deficiency as maybe created
In the fourth condition, which binds the
sureties in case the Legislature should fail to
make an appropriation, the obligation is further
extended by this insertion: "Or in case the suc
cessor of the said William B. Hart should re
fuse to accept the said bond and guarantee for
so mnch in money as shall have been advanced
Governor Beaver is not at all concerned about
anjpossible miscarriage of his plan, and said
to-night that the decision of the Attorney Gen
eral would make little difference; that if the
bond scheme wonld not work, then another
would. He is giving himself no uneasiness on
that score. To night the Governor said be had
not yet made up his mind regarding the ap
pointment of a commission for the distribution
of the relief fund, but will announce the names
to-morrow. He is waiting to hear from several
gentlemen. It is-reported here that William
H. Kemble, of Philadelphia, has assured his
willingness to assume the entire liaDility of the
SI, 000,000 bond.

Many Families Too Proud to Join the Line
of Applicants for Supplies.
JonxSTOWK, June 1L Quartermaster Baker
started out four men to-day to canvass Johns
town proper, in order to classify those needing
provisions. To-night the men turned in 1,187
names, and the city was not nearly all visited.
Quartermaster Baker says a surprising amount
of need was unearthed. Clothing is needed
very generally. A great many ladies were found
whose families were really suffering, who had
failed, through a sense of delicacy, to apply for
aid. The humility of seeking aid is removed by
the svstem now being introduced. The expec
tation is that the food and clothing which has
been going in large lots to undeserving persons
will now go to the more respectable and retir
Chief Gagley was stationed at the Commis
sary Supply House, near headquarters, to-day.
He found whole famtlins in the line of appli

T. J. Oliver, ot Philadelphia, represented the
Pennsylvania Grocers' Association, and is in
charge of tho storehouse established in the
German Catholic Chnrcb. Twenty carloads of
provisions and clothing were unloaded there
today. '"There can be no further scarcity of

JonuSTOWlf, June 1L Superintendent
Krebs, of the Gautier Works, said this morn
ing that the works would rebuild at Conemaugh
on condition that the borough grant them cer
tain concessions. The company wants Portage
street, which faced tne works, and which they
claim the town does not need. If this conces
sion is not granted the works will rebuild in the
Cambria yards. The impression is current that
the borough will not object The people real
ize that if the plant is not rebuilt the town will
be at an end nnless other works are started.
Secretary McLam, of the Johnson Company,
is authority for the statement that their loss
will be about $50,000. The plant will be rebuilt
at Moxham, in connection with their works
there, and wben completed, Mr. McLaln claims,
it will be the finest street railway plant in the
United States, if not in the world. The ma

KPXCXAL TELIOHAM TO TSX DISPATCH.!
Chicago, Jnne 1L The eighth successive
game won or lost by the Chicago team by one
ran was played at the Congress street grounds
this afternoon. This time the Plttsburgs, other
wise known in Cook county as the "Jonahs,"
grabhed oft the mutton pie. The game was
full of ginger. Gumbert and Staley pitched in
fine form, but the latter received the better
support. There was not much hitting, but
such as there was was terrific
MADE A MAEK.
The Chlcagos scored in the first inning on a
single by Van Haltren, bis steal to second and
two errors by Smith. After Carroll and Miller
had been doubled on a rare double play in
Pittsburg's half of the inning, Beckley dropped
the ball against the Harrison street wall for
two bases. A passed ball let him to third, and
Maul's vicious drive to right sent him over the
plate. Maul scored a moment later on a
fumble by Ryan. Neither team scored in the
second, the feature of the inning being a
double play by Anson, Burns and Pf effer. The
Chlcagos took the lead in the third on singles
by Gumbert, Ryan and Van Haltien, and an
error by Knehne.
THEY JOGGED ALONG.
The Plttsburgs jogged along without much
luck until the fifth inning, when they tied the
score on triples by Carroll and Maul. The
game from here until the finish was intensely
interesting. For four innings neither team
could get a man over the plate A lightning
double play by Pf offer, Anson and Ryan In the
sixth spoiled the visitors' chances of smashing
the tie. A remarkable catch by Van Haltren
of a line fly in the soventh sent Beckley to his
seat when it looked as thongh his mighty hit
would carry him around the bases. The Chl
cagos could do nothing with .Staley In these
four innings. Not a safe hit was made off his
delivery, and only two men got as far as first
In the ninth, after the Chlcagos bad been re
tired in the order in which they came to tho
bat, "Pop'' Smith banged the ball almost to
the engine house for three bases.
with nobodt out,
it was dollars to pebbles that the visitors would
win the game. The spectators had begun to
walk out into the warm sunlight of Congress
street. But Gumbert was not ready to give up.
He rubbed the ball in the sand of the box and
began to pitch with all his might He fielded
out Staley and Knehne and held Carroll down
to a high fly which Van Haltren caught amid
one of the wildest demonstrations seen on the
rounds this year. Old "Pop" Smith twisted
is long mustache and smiled contemptuously
at his colleagues as they went out in the field.
The tenth inning began with a rattling round
of applause from the stand. Ryan, Van Hal
tren and Duffy, the three great sluggers of the
Chlcagos, made frantic lunges at tbe'batl, but
not one of them could knock it out 01 the dia
mond. WHERE THEY WON.
The Plttsburgs now resumed business where,
it left off in the fifth inning. Little Miller was
first at the bat. He drove a slow ground ball
to Burns, who threw the runner out at first,
despite his headlong slide. Then the brawny,
sinuous, double-jointed Beckley, the North
Sea whale ot Kansas, came to the bat. There
was one strike on him when he drove a furions

Thins or Two About the
ISPBCUL IELIOBAM TO TBI DISPATCH.l
Hew Yoke, June 1L The races at Jerome
Park to-day were well attended, the principal
attraction being the meeting of Captain Sam
Browh's Reporter and Mr. Withers' 'Major
Domo, in tne handicap race 13-16 miles at
106 pounds each. The Dispatch correspon
dent predicted In Sunday's paper that it would
take a Reporter to beat Major Domo, and
Captain Brown's great 3-year-old just did it by
an eye-brow in the last jump.
A great many thought it ought to have been
a dead heat. Reporter was tho 'favorite In the
betting of 0 to 5, but should they meet again
iajor Domo will bave a strong following, as a
good many claim he would have won had not
'Taylor, bis jockey, lost his whip 100 yards from
They meet again on Tuesday next, suburban
day, in the tidal stakes, one mile each, to carry
118 pounds. Diablo,Longstreet.Seephurus,Fav
ordale are also among those that are entered,
and it should prove ono of the greatest 3-year-old
races of the season. Maj6r Domo got three
lengths the best of the start to-day. and Re
porters friends claim that will more than make
up the difference caused by Taylor losing his
whip 100 yards from the finish". Reporter, if as
good next Tuesday as he was to-day, should
beat Mr. Withers' colt. Prince Royal is lame,
and Mr. Belmont will have to depend on Race
land to win the suburban. Mr. McClelland,
owner of Badge, says Raceland is his most
dangerous opponent. There will only be about
a dozen starters. June.

SOME BOLD CHALLENGES.
C. J. Hamlin Calls miller and Bibloy to
C. J. Hamlin, of' Buffalo, makes tho follow
ing plucky propositions in a letter to the
If Chimes is not the best member of the Beau
tiful Bells family 1 want to know it Nothing but
s practical test will satisfy the breeding, nubile.
Messrs. Miller & Sibley decline to trot St. Bel
against Chimes in 1890, because they say the- book
of their staUlon Is full at fSJtt The fee of Chimes
is also 1500, and 1 will agree to cover as many
nares with him as St. Bel covers or outside
mares that season, and then trot in the autumn
for a purse or a reasonable stake. As St. Bel lttwo
years older than Chimes, he should be able to stand
the strain better than my horse. St. Del. it is also
claimed, has trotted an eighth at Franklin in IS
seconds. This is taster than Chimes has gone, but
Jam perfectly willing to shoulder the handicap.
Solar as matured powers and speed-rate go, St.
Bel has the best of it on paper. The fairness of
my proposition, therefore, cannot be questioned.
The only troo way to fully test the capacities of the
firogeny of the three brothers Is to confine the track
est to them, w o do not want the colts ofother
stallions In the way to protract the scoring and to
otherwise interfere. My offer to trot in 1891 one
colt and one filly, each three years old, by chimes,
against an equal number of eolts and fillies
the same age, the progeny of St. Bel
and Bell Boy, Is renewed. This offer
Is not renewed for advertising purposes, as
baa been insinuated, but to show my willingness
to submit to a test which sooner or later will be
demanded by gentlemen who pay the generous
stallion fees of SoOO. But if we foot at the matter
purely from the advertising standpoint. It seems
to me that all fair-minded men will agree that St.
Bel, wltnhls4-year-oldbrotner, gets as much or
the booming from printer's ink as Chimes. Tho
offer to trot chimes against Bell Boy stands as
originally and courteously made. TheSIre Broth
ers, J notice, have been shaking a little red flag at
ree. ir they mean business I will accomodate
them.. I will trot, over a good mile track to-be
agreed upon. Belle Hamlin against Harry Wilkes,
the fastest of their horses by the record, mile

The TJoulnnglst Members Cause Trouble In
the Chamber of Deputies If Any
Store Meetings Are Suppressed,
There Will be Some
Paris, June 11. M. Gellibert des
Segnins interpellated the Government in
the Chamber of Deputies this afternoon in
relation to the suppression of theBoulangist
meeting at Angouleme on Sunday. He
said the violence used by agents of the Gov.
ernment had aroused a strong feeling in tho
country and be protested against further of
ficial interference with the rights of
tbe people. He said that things had
come to such a pass now that the
instant "Vive la Republic" or "Vive Bou
langer" was cried the officials began to make
arrests. The people were indignant at such
arbitrary action. He warned the Government
that it was vain to attempt to terrorize the
masses. They would persist in exercising
their liberty notwithstanding tho efforts of tha
government to deprive them of it. Applause
from the Right
M. Constans, Minister of the Interior, replied
to M. Gellibert des Seguins. He stated that
the Government had ordered a display of mili
tary forces at Angouleme because the people, in
receiving certain political leaders, had ob
structed the highways (interruptions from the
Right Demonstrations like that of Sunday
were generally the work of paid agitators. At
Angouleme agitators had even been summoned
from adjoining departments. Here there were
protests on the part of Bonlangist members, and
M.Lanr was called to order. M. Constans
continning said that M. Deroulde, one of the
persons charged with rlotine". bad seized a com
missary ofpolice by the collar and hacOinjured
his foot. Tbe commissary had only performed
his duty in arresting him andthosewhoassisted
him. The Minister then declared that the
Government would Bend more policemen to
Angouleme if such a meeting was again at
tempted. Mr. Laur shouted: "Just try and I will blow
the brains out of the first one who approaches
me." The President again called M. Laur to
order, and also M. Cuneo D'Ornano, who had
joined M. Laur in resenting the minister's
M. Constans. resumintr his sneech. said the
government bad to deal with a flagrant offense,
and not merely with isolated cases. Similar
scenes to tnose at Angouleme had been enacted
on the same day at Lyons and Correze, and by
tho same political party. Here another uproar
occurred on the Right, and the Marquis De
Bretenil had to be called to order. M. Constans
in conclusion said it was impossible to tolerate
such provocations any longer, and the Govern
ment in the future would deal severely with
those who were responsible for tbem. M. Con
stans was greeted with prolonged cheers from
the Left as he resumed his seat.

The Choir of tbe Enst End Episcopal Church
Calvary Episcopal Church members are In
dulging 'in considerable co'mment upon some
recent changes in the personnel of the mem

Miss S. H. Killikelly, the well-known
musician and mstrnctor, who has for
21 years presided at the organ a largo
part of that period witbont compensation,
and who has been nnremittlng in her
labors in the church and Sunday school, ten
dered her impetative resignation to the vestry
of the church. It was accepted at a
meeting of that body, and it is under
stood that Prof. Carl Better will temporarily,
perhaps permanently, sneceed her. It is
due to Messrs. H. P. Smith and John L. Gar
ner, who aro in charge of the music at Calvary,
to say that they protested emphatically against
Miss Killikelly s action when apprised of her
determination to sever her musical relations
with the church.
Miss Killikelly stated yesterday that her
duties had become so onerous in conjunction
with her literary and, educational work as to
necessitate her action. Tho congregation
seems considerably divided upon the questions
that have arisen in tbe condnct of tbe music,
and it is possible that the feeling engendered
may lead to further changes. It is understood

places in the late Prof. Friend's chain

bare to the pitiless world to-day on the trial
of Prof. Friend's right-hand man, the ex
Rev. William Howard, in the general ses

was dropped down through the chutes in
the Brooklyn factory to the mystification
of tho venerable Lawson N. Fuller and others
came from, and where it was pnt into the big
cases that were alleged bv Howard and Frjend
to contain machinery, were revealed for the
first time. Then two of tho men who helped
the Professor and Howard send the refined
sugar down the chutes at the factory and down
tbe heater hole of tbe Professor's dining room
in Sixtieth street told what they knew, to the
evident consternation of the defense and the
delight of the audience.
Next to no cross-examination was at
tempted, and the force of the overwhelming
array of testimony remained unbroken.

12 times, the dates of tbe purchase correspond
ing with the "Demonstrators" a.t the pro
fessor's" bouse 'in Sixtieth street when he re
ceived raw sugar from his dupes and produced
refined sugar out of a hole. Dp tr June 1GL
1885, though. Howard had made a number of
purchases of refined sugar, he had given no
name, paying cash and sending bis own truck
man f of the goods.
A (JTJEEB CTJSTOMEE.
The clerk who waited on Howard had pre
viously entered into the books the sale as made
to "a queer customer." On June 16Mr.Welde
meyer, becoming suspicious, as tbe result of
his own clerk's failure to get any name from
Howard or any information as to what be in
tended to do with such large purchases of
sugar, told him the firm wonld like to have
some name on the books for so considerable a
customer. Theri Howard said his name was
Wm. Eaton; but be would not disclose tbe pur
pose of bis purchases. Tbe clerk who usually
served, Howard testified that when he asked
Howard once what he was going to do with tho
sugar, Howard replied curtly: "You get your
money, don't you? That's enough for you to
But the clerk determined to know more If he
could, so he took don the name on the trnck
that came for Howard's sugar: "J. Sullivan,
1135 Second "avenue." Arthur Flickner. a
truckman, testified that on November 17, 1837,
Howard engaged him to take a large empty
case for the "factory" In Brooklyn to an unoc
cupied store on Sixty-fourth street near Third
avenue, in this city. Howard and Gns
Halstead met him there. He reached
there with the case at abont 11
o'clock at nigbt Howard told him to unhitch
his horses, leave the trnck stand at the side
walk, put his horses in a livery stable and
retnrn with tbem at 4.30 on tbe foilowingmorn
ing: When he returned at that hour the case
was very heavy. He carried it to the Brooklyn
"factory," Gus Halstead riding on the case.
In July, 1888. Howard called at bis house and
told him that he wished to engage him to bring
100 barrels of sugar for Apgar & Ganets', in
Dey street, to Brooklyn, and store tbem Jn
some place to be decided upon. Howard asked
mm wnetner ne xnewoi any suitaoie place
that could be hired for a week.
THEY KEPT IT QUIET.
Jeremiah Callahan, who was the day watch
man of the Hamilton avenue factory for about
a year before the exposure, testified that in the
beginning ot 1883 the Professor sent him over
to the factory to work under Howard's direc
tion. He (Callahan) was Instructed by How
ard to anow no one except "tneir own' the
Friends. Howards and Halsteads to no un to
thesecret rooms. He (Callahan) frequently
helped in the secret rooms. The only ma
chinery that. he ever saw in them was tho
crnshor and barrels of molds. A refined
sugar barrel was emptied on tin tables in tbe
strong room w here the crusher stood, uallahan
and his wife and Mrs. Howard broke up the
lumps in the sugar with mallets.
Then Callahan wheeled tbe sugar after it had
been pounded with the mallets, to tbe crusher
and the Halsteads and Howards poured it into
the hopper of the crusher. Then the crusher
was started, the' sugar passed through it to
sieves on the floor below, then through copper
chutes and was caught in barrels for the edifi
cation of the venerable Lawson H. Fuller and
the other English and American stockholders
who were putting up the cash.
This constituted Prof. Friend's chain-lightning
refining process as marked at the factory.
The only raw sugar be ever saw iu the secret
rooms came down through a hole In the roof
in bags. It was sent by treasurer Robertson of
the. company to bo rettned- At Howard's re
quest Callahan wheeled it into tho big secret
room off tbe strong room and piled it up he
hind a wall of the empty cases in which the
refined sugar had been smuggled into tho fac
tory, THE SOflO POND AGAIN.
A Cnve-lu Causes It lo Fill Up, After Pamps
Tbe pond at Soho is again causing trouble.
After it had been pumped out it was found
tbat tbe masonry of tbe sewer had caved in
and caused tbe original stoppage of the water,
the masonry was partly reconstructed; but the
heavy rains of tbe past few days caused It to
again fall in-whicli accident occurred onMon
day niebt. Tbe pond is now filled again, and as
all of tbe heavy pnmpmg machinery has been
removed, it is expected tbat it will bave to be
taken there again in order to empty the pond
sufficiently to allow the sewer to be rebuilt.
Wniiam Coates was placed in jaU yesterday
to await trial at court on a charge of surety of
the peace and felonions assault, on oath of bis
wife. Nettle Coates. of 12S Third avenue. It is
alleged Coates bit his wife and drew a revolver
to shoot her.
If you want absolute perfection
in the way of- a cocoa for break
fast or dinner, after a drive or bath
in the surf, ask" your grocer to send
you a pound or half-pound tin of
Blooker's Dutch Cocoa.
It will cost a dollar a pound but it
goes further than any other cocoa
so-called because it is absolutely
pure and made of the ripest and
choicest cocoa beans only.
