The periodical war scare is again affecting
Europe This time, however, the situation
seems more than usually belligerent. Only
a little break is needed to send all of the
nations flying at each others' throats. Rus
sia seems to be back of the present disturb
ance. Gladstone has been making a large
number of speeches, and has aroused great
enthusiasm for the Liberal cause. Great
preparations are being made for the visit ol
the Shah of Persia.
Los-DOS', June 15 Copyright. A new
war scare has been born this week, and just
now it appears to be a remarkably fine
healthy infant of its kind, but to me, despite
its present vigor, the chances seem in favor
of its dying youDg, like its predecessors.
But at this mome it Europe is taking it very
seriously indeed, and the war scare is the
only talk. The Standard, which makes a
specialty of alarmist news, is quite hysteri
cal with worry, and the Daily Xevos and
other papers follow suit, all in a very dole
ful pessimistic tone.
Russia has shown an unusually pro
nounced desire to gobble up the little Balkan
States which act as a buffer between Aus
tria, Turkey and Russia, and hence the row.
The Servian repents, instead of looking
after the interests of their nominal master,
King Alexander, Milan's little son, have
been openly coquetting with their real mas
ter, the Bussian bear, and listening favor
ably to Bussian proposals for a military
convention. A military convention in this
case would mean military annexation of
Servia by Bussia, the control of Servian
troops by the Czir, the elevation to the Ser
vian throne of Karageorgevich or the Prince
of Montenegro, the deposition of the Abene
vitch dynasty and a very uncomfortable
state of things for others whose interests de
mand Servia's independence.
Austria is the chief of these, and the
alarmists are predicting that she will have
to pick a row with Bussia directly, or march
into Servia and thrash that little nation
until she shall promise to remain neutral
aud independent. It is, of course, no trick
at all to prove how a little scrimmage down
in the Balkan peninsula mustsetall Europe
blazing. The demonstration has been made
so often that it is now as simple as the rule
of three.
Austria alone can't stand her ground
agt.inst Bussia, so Italy and Germany, as
members of the triple alliance, must turn in
and help Austria. Prance seeing Germany
in trouble would vigorously remember 1870
and her missing territory, and we should
eee bi? and little continental powers at it,
hammer and tongs.
The British Hon is meanwhile borrowing
a leaf from the back of his friend, the
jackal, and prowling about waiting to pick
the bones of the vanquished. Beside this
Balkan trouble there are others. Germany
is bullying little Switzerland because she
won't give up Socialists and other trouble
some characters to be put away where they
can't worry Bismarck, Bussia, fora wonder,
agrees with Germany, and abuses Switzer
land also because of her protection to the
Xihilists, and the poor little hilly republic
is so worried one would think it would
feel inolined to retire to the top of Mont
Blanc and pull up the ladder.
Tfio Shah, too, has had his lesson. After
being fed and pampered in Russia he was
dismissed with a stern warning to be care
ful about showing too great friendliness to
England, which seems to have made him
thoughtful. That other semi-civilized high
mightiness, the poor, sublime Turk,
always comes in for his share of anything
unpleasant. Row he is being worried and
bullied, too, because he has not discharged
his obligations toward Armenia, aud the
fact that he is bankrupt and in trouble with
his wives has stirred np so pity in the re
lentless Bussian.
"With all these complications on, and big
armies everywhere waiting to fight, it seems
as though the explosion ought to come some
where soon, but somehow or other these
things calm down, and perhaps this one will
too. The most serious feature is the tre
mendous effect which this scare has on
European bourses,, an effect such as has not
been produced by any of the many recent
All the markets of Europe are affected.

men of Europe, who possess a large per
centage of Europe's brains, believe trouble
is coming, and that after all the false cries
of "wolt," the animal is here at last.
As opposed to war rumors it may be said
Herbert'Bismarck has gone for his holiday
as usual, Emperor William is going to rest
and fish on the Xorwcgian coast and the
Danish King is making his usual yearly
preparation to receive nis son-in-law, the
Czar, with all his family. An individual

Uow the opposition of the Regent is so
potent that he dare not go back to Belgrade
as he was about doing lrom a fear, which
appears well founded, of imprisonment or
assassination. The circulation of disquiet
ing rumors is most industriously carried on,
and even the official Berlin paper prints
such rubbish as the tale about Russia having
ordered 4,000,000 pairs ol boots to be ready
in two months, an order, by the way, which

London, June 15. Copyright A
Belgian murderer named Hoybs, now un
dergoing trial at Chantilly, will .live in the
annals of crime. Fourteen years ago
he insured his wife for $12,000. A
few weeks after she was killed by a
horse's kick, Hoyos, said, but it was proved
he had just previously bought a horseshoe
and fastened it to the end of a mallet. He
was a man of enormous physical strength,
and there is little reason to doubt that he
killed the woman with the strange weapon,
but Hoyos was acquitted in the absence of
actual proof.
2The following year he killed a Belgian
judge, but again escaped punishment, owing
to imperfect evidence. After a term of im
prisonment for forgery he went to Prance,
where for years he lived a mysterious life,
constantly changing his name. In 18S5 he
returned" to Belgium, was convicted of
swindling and sent to prison for two
years. At the expiration of this
sentence he returned to Paris with a young
lady whom he had persuaded to elope with
him. He finally deserted the girl, became
a land steward and was dismissed for at
tempting to strangle a gamekeeper. Then
he advertised himself as a childless
widower, strong, handsome, amiable, well
connected, having 150,000 Jrancs and seek
ing youth, beauty and good means.
Failing .to obtain a well-dowered brjde
Hoyos resolved upon the crime for which
he will jjrobably lose his head. He insured
his life in various offices for a quarter of a
million dollars, found a man naraedIouis
Barron physically resembling himself,
killed him and placed his body on a rail
way line, where it was found mutilated
beyond recognition. Jn the murdered man's
pockets were various documents belonging
to Hoyos and a will drawn up by the mur
derer, "leaving everything to Louis Barron.
The victim Mas buried as Hoyos, and then
Hoyos, under the name of Barron, at
tempted to collect the insurance money.
Fortunately he did not prove as effectivean
actor as a murderer, and suspicions having
been aroused, Hoyos was arrested.

A Chance for an Enter- .
prising Burglar.
London, June, 15. Copyright. The
Shah of Persia is about to arrive here, being
due July 1. Society women have already
begun their innocent little intriguing with
a view to securing him as a curiosity at
their social functions, and the Government
and private individuals are preparing
amusements for him of every kind. The
two stories told about him Are sufficiently
remarkable to keep tbe papers busy for a
long time. He is probably the best living
type of the absolute boss, as we have been
accustomed to him in the Arabian Nights.
When he is at home he can cut off any
body's head, change a prince into a beggar
or a beggar into a prince, and his idea of
luxury and disregard of expense may be
gathered from the fact that the throne on
which he sits is nearly altogether composed
of precious stones, which are imbeded in it,
to the value of about 530,000,000, a wonder
ful opportunity, br the way, tor some tal
ented American burglar to make himself
rich at one blow and retire from business.
Among the Shah's hosts while in Eng
land, of whom I have mentioned several,
must be included Baron Ferdinand de
Rothschild, who will receive him at his
country seat and at his house in Piccadilly.
The Festivities Attending the Marc-lace of

London, June 15. The EmperorofRus

married in St. Petersburg to Princess Alex
andra, of Greece. In honor of the event
there will be goings on here In London and
all over Europe. Last night tbe young man
entertained all the unmarried officers of his
Hussar Regiment of Life Guards at a fare
well bachelors' party which Russians call
malchisni. The heir to the throne was
there, and 70 gipsy men and women sang in
the park, which was lighted w'ith electrici
ty, and the affair seems to have been very
successlul, especially as regards the amount
drank by the loyal and enthusiastic officers.

Lord Durham Will Not be Able to Make Ills
Folnt Against Sir George Chetwrnd.
LONDON, June 15 The great turf
case has been going on a whole
week, and is likely to last a fortnight
longer. The question to be settled, as you
know, is whether or no Lord Durham was
right in accusing Sir George Chetwynd of
having his horse pulled and cheating on the
tnrf in various ways. Thus far Chetwynd
appears to be coming out ahead. He has
proved a good witness in the box, and came
up each day prepared with an apparently
sound answer for all the questions put to
He produced his betting and bankbooks
in court, admitted that he made money out
of the turf, actually got a fine income out
of it, but thought that was no
body's business. Sherrard, the trainer, had
said that no one could teach Sir George
anything about horses, and he appears to
beright. There is very little doubt that
Lord Durham has got right on his side, but
there is very little doubt as to his being
able to prove it.
A Tarn In tho Trial That Is Favorable to
the A censed
London, June 15. Copyright The in
vestigations in relation to the poisoning case
in Liverpool, in which 'Mrs. Maybrick, an
American, is charged with killing her hus
band with small doses of arsenic, are this
week favorable to. the accused woman. It
is shown quite clearly that Mr. Maybrick
at one time poisoned with arsenic several
troublesome dogs in the neighborhood,
which would show that he had arsenic
about with him.
A Liverpool druggist has admitted that
he had made up doses of arsenic for Mr.
Maybrick, sometimes 40 grains at a time.
Mrs. Maybricfc's mother, the Baroness
Boque, is working with wonderful energy
on her daughter's behalf, and has aroused
universal sympathy in her efforts to prove
the accused woman's innocence.

An Attempt to Establish ay.MemorIaI to
Father Damlca Meets With Decided
Opposition The Need of
Science A Distrusting
LONDON, June 15. The latest scheme
for honoring the memory of Father Damien
is the establishment of a ward for leprous
patients attached to one of the Lon
don hospitals and named after the
heroic priest. The scheme has aroused
much opposition, especially among physi
cians, who are busy proving in the newspa
pers that its only e'ffect would be to attract
a swarm of lepers to London.
At present there "are only 20 known
lepers in England, and these are isolated
and will be cared for. Foreign lepers are
told they had much better remain each in
his own country, and the argument that
the proposed ward would enable
doctors to study the disease, is
declared worthless, inasmuch as there are
books from which students can learn all
they can possibly require to know. A lot
of learned men met the other night in the
rooms of the Epidemiological Society here
and gloated over a couple of lepers who
had been induced to make an exhibition of
themselves in the interest of science.
One was a lady, whom the awful disease
had made quite blind, and the other was an
old man, who, to a casual observer, looked
like any other old man, but he has already
lost several fingers and is in a palsied con
dition generally. The poor creatures were
pulled about, their spittle examined under
the microscope, while the learned ones
talked in their hearing of the hopelessness
of curing the disease. Altogether the ex
hibition was not a pleasant one, and an at
tempt to repeat it will evoke a decided pro

Ten Thousand Philadelphia Working
Men Declare Their Sentiments
Sixty Per Cent of the Entire Number Posi-
tively Affirm That
Sewspaper Estimates That Indicate a Big Majority
for the L'quor lien.
A systematic canvass, made among 10,144
workingmen ot Philadelphia, illustrates in
a striking manner the popular sentiment on
the amendment question. Sixty per cent
of the voters polled are against prohibition,
20 per cent favor it, 6 per cent are donbtful,
and 5 per cent will not vote at all. Basing
its calculations on reports received from all
parts of the State, the Record estimates
91,325 majority against the amendment.
Philadelphia, June 15. During the
past week the Record has made a careful
poll of the voters in many of the large in
dustrial establishments of the city on tbe
prohibition amendment, and to-day it gives
the result of its work to its readers. Ten
thousand one hundred and forty-four voters
were polled by the Record reporters. OI that
number 2,034 declared in favor of the
amendment, 6,966 said they would vote
against it, 619 are doubtful and 544 will not

great care, and only those who are
entitled to vote are included in the tables
which follow. Another excellent feature
of the poll is that it covers a very wide
range. It takes in steel workers, iron
workers, carpet weavers, cigar makers, car
drivers and conductors, rope makers, boot
and shoe makers, sugar refiners, clerks and
salesmen in wholesale houses, and the
workers in many other industries and
branches of trade. It is without doubt the
best indication of the sentiment existing
among the people upon the prohibition

This shows that 60 per cent of the work
ingmen polled are against prohibition, 20
per cent are for the amendment, 6 per cent
are doubtful, and 5 per cent will not vote at
all. If this ratio were to hold good on elec
tion day, and 100,000 votes are polled in this
city, the majority against the amendment
would be 49,000." Giving the Prohibition
ists the benefit of all the doubtful voters and
those who sav they will stay at home, the
majority would still be 33,000 out of 100,000
votes. There were
in connectionwith the canvass. Perhaps
the most striking of all was the remarkable
unanimity with which foreign-born citizens
announced their opposition to prohibition.
It was the exception to find a man who had
come from a foreign country favor the
amendment Perhaps 2,000 of the 10,000
men polled are naturalized citizens, and not
more than 40 of the 2,000 said they would
vote for prohibition. Another singular fea
ture was the great number of temperance
men, or rather teetotalers, who asserted that
they did not believe in prohibition and
would not, therefore, vote for the amend
ment. "I don't drink a drop myself never did;
yet I don't believe in prohibition," is an
expression that the reporters who made the
canvass heard very often during the week.
These men say they do not think prohibi
tion will prohibit, and if the amendment
were adopted they
than at present. They also hold that it
would be interfering with the liberties of
their fellow-men to deprive them of their
drink. That is how the teetotalers in the
mills and factories look at the question. On
the other hand, there were a great many
men who make a practice of drink
ing' some who neglect their work on
account of drink, who asserted that they in
tended to vote for prohibition as the easiest
way of putting temptation out of their way.
The great majority of those for and of those
against the amendment are, however, men
who are sincerely for prohibition and men
who like to take a drink when they feel
like it. In going through the rolling mills
and dye works it was a noticeable fact that
the men who worked close to fires and over
steaming vats are solidly against prohibi
tion. ''Any man who works as we do needs
a little stimulant now and then," was a
common expression. The men who favored
prohibition about these places, as a rnle,
were macninisps or carpenters.
estimates carefully made.
In order to make this poll as valuable as
possible the leading business places in the
city were selected. The proprietors of sev
eral large establishments said their rules
woiild not permit a poll of the employes
during working hours. They said a
stranger going through the works was
sure to create confusion, and they had a
cast-iron ruie mat no one should do this
for any purpose. Among the firms who
have this rule ere Thomas Dolau & Co.,
Allison Manufacturing Company, Baldwin
Locomotive Works, William Sellers Com
pany, James & George Bromley, Harrison,
Frazier & Co., Powers & Weightman,
Quaker City Dye Works, Isaac Sheppard
& Son and James Kitchenman.
Several of 'the proprietors made their
own canvasses, and in one or two instances
estimates were made by the superintendent.
The poll of John T. Bayley & Co.'s works
was made by the superintendent of the
works, while John B. Stetson's superintend
ent made the estimate for his works.
An Estimate Based on Reports From Nearly
Every .County Shows a Probable
Majority of 91,333 Acalast
Prohibition The Phila
delphia Record's
Philadelphia, June 15. The Record
to-morrow morning will print the estimates
of a large number of correspondents -and
newspaper editors in all parts of the Stale'
as to the probable outcome of the
prohibition election in their respective
counties. Several strong prohibition coun
ties, such as, Warren, McKean, Susque
hanna and Tioga, failed to respond
but their majorities would have no effect
toward overcoming the State's majority
against the amendment. Cameron, Center,
Clarion, -Clearfield, Clinton, Montour.
Potter and Sullivan have not been heard
from. Some of these will vote against pro
hibition, and thereby nearly counterbalance
the prohibition counties not heard from.
It will be noticed that prohibition is
strongest in the western counties, and in the
northern tier, east of the Susquehanna, and
in the southern counties, the sentiment
against prohibition is strong. In the center
of the State there is much diversity of opin
ion, and the result will be nearly a draw.

been made to have the estimate correct, so

text of the Berlin compact, now on its way
to Washington in the custody of Mr.
Phelps, is not yet published, its basis has
evidently been allowed to become known as
if to ascertain the popnlar opinion upon
it. Alike in Germany, England and
the United States, this opinion shows
that our country has achieved
a great success. This result is more due to
the firm and inexorable attitude of Mr.
Blaine than to, any political leanings 'of
England toward tbe power which it
is her highest aim to conciliate.
The Germans, accustomed to the
Chancellor's autocratic control of their
foreign policy already console themselves
with the assumption that a settlement of the
diplomatic controversy, even at a loss, will
yet leave them free to further augment the
commercial preponderance which they un
questionably now have at Samoa.
The main feature secured by our com
missioners in the new plan for governing
Samoa is a recognition of the, independence
of the Samoan nation. This recognition Mr.
Bayard, had unsuccessfully sought to ob
tain in the Washington conference of 1887,
as his letter of January 17 followinz to Minis
ter Pendleton shows. Hisprececessorsin'the
State Department had always insisted upon
Samoan autonomy, and Mr. Cleveland's
administration had received that policy by
inheriteuce. But the German representa
tion in the conference insisted that Germany
should have sole control of Samoa on ac
count of -the weakness of the native Gov
ernment. N
The" present, recognition of' the right of
the natives to antonomy with the free
choice of their King and Vice King, must
therefore be considered the main fruit of the
Berlin conference. The report of the Ger
man special commission Mr. Travers made
to Prince Bismarck December 8,
1886, had insisted that the govern
ment of the country must be placed in
the hands of but one of tbe treaty powers, by
the consent of the others, and that Germany
must be that power. America and Ger
many will now stand on a level, while'JEn
gland will act as arbitrator in case of dis
agreement or give the casting vote.
The Bnsy Chnlrman Kept In Washington
Until tho President Returns.
Washington, June 15. Senator Quay
did not succeed in getting ready for his de
parture this evening, as was expected. The
exodus of President and Cabinet officers
prevented him from attending to many
matters which he had left unfinished. .The
President and Secretaries Blaine and Win
dom started early for their sail down the
river to salt water in Editor Singerly's steam
yacht , Restless, and will not return
till Monday. Mr. Wanamaker left last
evening for New York and will return Mon
day. As Mr. Quay desires to see all of these
gentlemen before leaving, he is forced to re
main until Monday evening, when he will
go direct to Beaver.
Chairman Andrews, of the Republican
State Committee, spent a considerable por
tion of the day in company with Senator
Quay, and toeether they visited a number
of minor officials of the departments, but
nothing more was accomplished than a
further discussion of a number of applica
tions for office. Chairman Andrews left for
home this evening,and the Senator indulged
in a drive.
Against a Railroad for Alleged Violation of
Phillipsbttrg, June 15. Sixly-three
suits will be entered against the Beech
Creek Bailroad, Monday, for work done on
the flooded parts of the line between " Phil
lipsburg and Snowshoe. The men claim
they were 'promised 15 cents an hour, and
to-day, discovering that they were being
allowed only 12 cents, demanded their state
ments in accordance with the contract.
The demand being refused counsel was
engaged to prosecute their claims. It is
possible the trouble will extend to other
portions of the road.
Joseph Bane, of Clmrtlers Borough, Placed
In Jail for n Hcnrlog.
Joseph Bane was sent to jail in default of
$2,000 bail, by Alderman McMasters yester
day, on a charge of arson, County Detective
Langhorst being the prosecutor. The
charge is based on information received.
The indictment alleges that Bane insured in
the Germania Fire Insurance Company, of
New York, a two-story frame dwelling for
51,000 in policy 26,411. The house was
located on Main street, Chartiers borough.
The policy was to run for three years, from
June 13, 1888.

One thousand men under the State con

look quite presentable.- Nearly all traces of
the overflow have been removed in a great
portion of the plate. Three thousand three
bundred people are fed every day by tbe
Belief Committee, but there is always
enough on hand to go around.
Kebnville, June 15. This borough of
Johnstown is rising up out of the debris as
fast as the united efforts of 1,000 men under
the State contractors can clear away the
wreck. Clean streets and repaired houses
here and there show the rapid progress made
in the past week, bnt it will take some time
before the town will look anything like it
did before the flood. Prom the upper part,
called Grubbtown, to South street, nearly
all traces of the overflowhave been removed,
and every place is easily accessible, but
below that section the streets are impass
able. The heavy rains of the past two days
have played sad havoc with some of the
thoroughfares, and turned the huge piles of
dirt, bricks and stones into pools of slush
knee deep.
A Few Weeks More to Work,
Colonel Douglass, chief engineer, speak
ing to-day of the work going on in Kern
ville under his direction, said: "All ave
nues of communication willbe opened about
Wednesday, and in a few weeks everything
will "be in good shape for the residents to
get about with ease and comfort. The
probable cost, in my estimation, will be in
the neighborhood of $2,000.
The dynamite discharges at the stone
bridge are shaking up things, and caused
one house which had been condemned to
crash to the ground. Minor wrecks from
similar causes are reported, but none are of
a serious nature. Corpses are hauled out ot
the mass oi fallen buildings every day, and
up to date 124 bodies have been taken to the
morgne at the corner of South and Napoleon
streets. Some were claimed by relatives
and friends, while the unknown are in
terred at Prospect Hill. William Park
and tamily ot five were all found in the
ruins of Swank. Son & Co.'s large brick
hardware building, which was carried by
the flood from the corner of Main and Bed
ford streets, in Johnstown, to Kernville, a
distance of three-quarters of a mile.'

Admirable care has been taken oi the sick,
and the Bed Cross Society is doing noble
work in its tents, pitched at the top of the

physicians. The number of cases is happily
decreasing, and the past week only three
diphtheria and one measles patient havebeen
treated, and they are-all reported to be on
the fair road to recovery. There is no dan
ger of an epidemic and the fears of the peo
ple are set at rest. This morning Drs.
Bacon, W. C. Lott, James Mitchell and two
nurses, all of Philadelphia, arrived in Kern

Johnstown, June 15. Street mains and
pipes were terribly torn and twisted by the
terrific force of the flood and the water has
been escaping in torrents from the openings
every day. Superintendent of Water
Works Williams djrected his attention to
the matter to-day and made a personal in
spection of the condition of the pipes.
A force of over 300 men was employed to
repair all the breaks and stop the wasteful
flow of water. By plugging the openings
the water will be forced back, the pressure
causing a greater flow from the mountain

Whnt noSnys About tbe Reports of Trouble
Among the Undertakers nt Johnstown
Some Allegations Denied.
In answer to the stories published about
the trouble between undertakers in Johns
tomn, Mr. William H. Devore tells an un
varnished tale as follows:
"When we started to Johnstown there
were between 20 and 30 of us. We had a
car to ourselves in order to consult. I was
made chairman, and we decided to form our
forces into squads. Before we reached
Nineveh we intended to leave some of our
force, but vre got a telegram stating that
there were enough undertakers there, and so
we all went to Johnstown.
. "When we got there we found men at
work doing as well as they knew how. They
relinqnished the work, glad to get rid of it.
They had some bodies lying on a platform,
and two loads had been hauled away. I
suggested to the man in charge that his men
had better let the matter alone, as they were
not working on system. He said 'AH
right,' We went to work, and after some
time the inquiry was made as to wbo was in
charge. I told the questioner there was no
one in particular, but all doing the best they
could. He asked me my name and wrote it
down, and then went to General Hastings
and asked how it would do to put Devore in
charge. General Hastings replied that it
would be all right and then Dr. Lee gave
me a certificate of authority and requested
that there beno profanityinthe undertakers'
.department. Dictator Scott indorsed It and
gave me full charge of the morgue at the
Pennsylvania Bailroad depot.
"I then appointed assistants, Mr. Kittle,
burg, of Altoona, and William M. Daily
of Philadelphia. Passenger Agent Watt
furnished safes in which all the valuables
found on the bodies were placed. As soon
as the bodies were prepared they were sent
to Prospect Schoolhouse for identification.
"Everything seemed serene until some men
came from Pittsburg and said that they were
sent as assistants. Two-thirds of them
were under the influence of liquor. When
they asked for quarters I referred them to a
freight car, as our own men were short of
accommodations. I went to see General
Hastings, and when I returned I found the
new men .where mine sbonld have been.
"I asked them, to go; but it required the
Johnstown Chief of. Police and Pittsburg
officers to expel them. The first trouble was
just before Mr. Plannery went away on
Friday evening. A man came to the morgue
and said that Mr. Plannery was taking some
ofthetaen home with him. I asked Mr.
Plannery about it and he asked me for my
authority. I looked for the man, but could
not find him. I met the man soon after,
and he gave me a paper signed J. L. Green,
Kittanning. which said that Mr.' Flannery
had ordered some undertakers to quit. Dr.
Jessup and others signed the notice.
"The conduct of some of the men who
claimed to be embalmers was simply hor
rible, some being drunk and using pro
fanity. I got $245 from a corpse. The
money was turned over to Mr. Scott, ana I
have his receipt for it. When I found men
had been passing whisky bottles over
corpses I was enraged and put a stop to it.
"The statement in The Sundat Dis
patch that leading undertakers of Pitts
burg were drunk was wrong. Though Mr.
Plannery used some harsh words he did not
offer to take off his coat or to fight. As to
the condition of the morgne I had charge of,
I refer to Bevs. Hicks and Beale, Mr.
Thomas Watt, agent for P. B. B. at Johns
town, Mr. Moore, assistant agent, the chief
of police and all good citizens of Johnstown
who visited it.
I left here last Sunday morning a week
ago; wa sick in the hospital on Sunday;
came down on Monday; went back and
stayed until last Friday night, and when I
left there put a good man in my place, who
will remain in charge until I return."

A Man Who Euns a Signal Service
Bureau for His Own Benefit.
Predictions .Which Are More Accnrata Thaa
Those of Greely.
He Derotes His Entire Time to Studying the Course
ef the Elements.
The Blue Hill Observatory, near Boston,
is furnishing weather predictions of its
own. They are said to be more accurate
than those furnished by the Government
bureau. The manager ot the concern is a
rich young student who runs the affair for
his own amusement. The observatory is
provided with the finest machinery that caa
be secured.
Boston, June 15. There are 40 odd
persons in Southeastern Massachusetts who
pay little attention to the reports sent out
by the Government Weather Bureau. Blue
Hill is the Mecca of the weather faith, and
each day they turn their eyes toward the
tower on the summit to ascertain what
nature has prepared for them in the way of
rai n, sunshine, wind orcalm. Their confidence
in the prophesies fluttering from the signal
pole on the top of this mountain is rarely
misplaced. They have found that the men...
who live on that elevated tower are on'
more friendly terms with the fickle goddess
of the wind and storm than are Govern
ment weather prophets, and it is the pre
vailing belief that sucn favoritism will
bring forth more accurate statements in re
gard to the weather.
This observatory on the top of Great Bine
Hill, as it is sometimes called, is quite an
interesting institution. It is perfect in all
its details and is supplied with all the ap
paratus necessary to spy out the secret plans
of tbe elements. The good work accom
plished in that tower which notifies thou
sands of persons of impending storm or
bright promises of sunshine and which is
superior in point of accuracy to the, vast
Government servicers the result of a young
man's hobby.
That man is Abbott Lawrence Botch.
His home is in Boston, on Commonwealth
avenue, and his wealth and social standing
place his family among the first in tbe city.
He has for an assistant a young man, H.
Helm Clayton, who is equally enthusiastic
in the work. All the expense of building
and fitting out the observatory and it ag
gregated many thousand dollars was borne
by Mr. Botch, and the current expenses,
which amorfnt to $3,200 each year, are
also paid by him. This enterprise was the
first of its kind in the United States.
Mr. Botch, ever since his boyhood days,
has been deeply interested in meteorology.
In the Massachusetts Institute of Tech
nology he was looked upon by his class
mates as a mild sort of weather crank. He
made many interesting discoveries that were
given to the public through the columns of
the scientific journals. He graduated in
18S4, and then devoted his entire time to
the study of his favorite science. Great
Blue hill is the highest point of land on the
Atlantic coast from Maine to Plorida, and
was selected as the best place for making
the investigations determined upon.
Mr. Botch sought the co-operation of the
Government Signal Service Bureau, bnt the
chief signal officer wanted to take the en
tire charge of the place, and that scheme
was dropped. Such an arrangement would
have conflicted with the policy outlined by
Mr. tfotcn.
Then he determined to take charge of the!r """
work himself, and make all the observa-'
tions with such aid as an assistant conld
render. He built the observatory on the
top ot a hill that had once been given over
to rattlesnakes, and in less than three'
years he had become such a dan
gerous rival that the Govern- v
ment was forced to recognize
his work. In the building, which was
strongly built to withstand the high winds
that sweep over the summit of tbe hill, all
the instruments known to scientists by
which sunshine, wind and rain can be
nfeasured and analyzed are collected, and
then Mr. Botch and his assistant kept their
weather eyes open for anything unusual in
the atmosphere.
It was not their intention o run a rival
establishment to the Government Weather
Bureau. Theirs was based upon entirely
different principles. The Government
weather prophet merely took the weather as
it came, asking no questions, and dispensed
it with more or less accuracy throughout the
country. Mr. Botch went further than that.
He first accepted what dame nature sent
him, and then songht to know the why and
wherefore of such weather. It was bis de
sire to become so familiar with all the
smaller details that go to make up a storm
or a cold or warm wave that in the future
greater accuracy could be secured in weather
They have a wind gauge that marks upon
a chart the direction and the velocity and
the character of the wind. Each moment in
the 21 hours is marked accurately. Another
instrument is nicely adjusted that not only
is the total rainfall recorded, but the quan
tity ot rain that falls at any one moment
is shown. A barometer is also provided,
with pen and ink, and every change in the
atmospheric pressure is recorded with
greater accuracy than human fingers could
secure. The changes in the temperature are
faithfully announced by a series of ther
mometers. In order to see what relation sunshine
bears to showers, a sunglass is so arranged
as to record every moment of sunshine dur
ing'the day. The observer at the close of
each day is able to tell just the moments
when the sun was obscured by clouds, and
when its rays again reached the earth.
The clouds are not neglected. By means
of a minor, properly adjusted, the speed of
the clouds of tbe several strata is ascertained,
and any changes in the direction of the wind
at the several atmospheric levels are takes
into account. The predictions thus made
are the result of local observations as above
described, combined with the observations
sent out from the signal station in this city.
The weather map, which is issued dailv by
the Boston office, is sent to the Blue Hill
Observatory, and the predictions made from
there are largely based upon its record.
