Rain is a very nice thing in its way, but when
it descends upon Pittsburgers 17 out of 19 days
in June; when the male -population has to arm
itself with umbrellas to the total exclusion of
canes, and when the ladies take to wearing
waterproots and mackintoshes, it will occur to
the average citizen that the weather clerK is
having altogether too much fun with the wet
Weather has been of the profoundest impor
tance during the month of May and in June
down to date on account of the Johnstown dis
aster, the damage to Western Pennsylvania
crops, and last, but not least, that City Hall
bugaboo, the Red Pond, of Soho. A resume of
the weather features during the last month and
a half must, therefore, prove of absorbing In
terest to the readers of The Dispatch.
FILING A TEOTEST AGAINST WETNESS.
In the hope that an indignant protest would
'in a measure curtail the amiable propensity to
humidity in the atmosphere that has distin
guished the Signal Service of late, a Dispatch
representative ascended yesterday to the den
in which Pittsburg weather is doled out, and
catechised Observer 0. D. Stewart in regard to
Old Probs, past, present and future.
Mr. Stewart had just received a polite little
missive from General Greely which contained
a modest request for a full hydrostatic account
of the Johnstown disaster. The uibane ob
server groaned in spirit but resignedly re
marked that whatever General Greely said
"went," and that the report would be im
mediately prepared, al tough the work involved
in its preparation would be very severe. As to
comparisons between the present wet spell and
the observations of preceding years, the figures
required by The Dispatch were very oblig
ingly furnished by Mr. Stewart.

GENERAL STATISTICS OF INTEREST.
"This has been a very wet year so far," said
Mr. Stewart. "The general average of annual
rainfall in 18 years past is 1G.20 inches.
Since January 1 20.57 inches have fallen. You
' will sec that the first sixmonths of the current
year have exceeded the yearly average 137
inches. It bids fair to be the wettest year on
record, although at the end of June, 1SS7. 1883
and 18S2. more rain had fallen than up to the
- present time in this year. In 1871 the amount
of rainfall here was eight inches less than
. , average of the succeeding 18 years. We had
inside of 21 hours ou the evening of last May
10 and the morning of May 11 an extraordinary
precipitation, 2.86 inches, and at one time the
rainfall exceeded an inch an hour. That this
-was an nnusual occurrence, tbe following table
, of days upon which the rainfall exceeded 2U
inches inside of 24 hours will show. The com
putation covers a period ot 18 years:

"AVe don't and can't indulge in long range
predictions, and experience proves that the hit
or miss prophets who obtain a momentary no
toriety by a successful forecast which is only
another name lor tool iuck at guessing finally
lay down beaten by Old Probs. AVe have made
99 per cent of onr Jnne predictions already. As
to chances of abnormal rainfall for the bal
ance of the summer, I can only say that the
tendency has been to conform to a general
average in past years, and yon see that the
figures are now far beyond tbe usual annual
rainfall, and it is far moro probable than other
1M that there will be a deficiency daring the
balance of the year. It does not follow neces
sarily that this will be the wettest year on
record because we have had so much rain al
ready. Our indicationsf No farther ahead
than 24 hours."
MEASURING THE RAINFALL.
At 8 p. at. last evening a Signal Service
young man, emerged from the interior of the
Schmidt building carrying a lantern and a tbin
stick with inch marks and decimals thereof In
black paint on one end. He proceeded to the
rain gauge, which is securely fastened to the
roof, with nothing near it to deflect either
wind or rain. The gauge is much In the shape
of a round-topped funnel, contracting gradu
ally to a tube, the measurement being so made
that the interior of the tube is one-tenth of
the lineal surface of the widest part of the or
ifice. The Signal Service man stood over the
gauge and thrust the marked stick into the
central tube. Withdrawing it he held it up to
the lantern. There were marks of water on
three and two-tenths inches of the length of
the stick, showing that thirty-two hundredths
of rain fell during the 24 hours ending at the
hour the test was made. This method of meas
urement is in duplicate of a very cunning
electrical register which runs by clockwork.
The electric register, at every decimal amount
of rainfall, forms an electric circuit and makes
a mark on a pad exactly in the same manner as
the anomctcr, or wind measuring machine.
The pluviameter. or rainfall measurer, is made
of galvanized iron and is manufactured by the
Government for the Signal Service.
CROPS AND FEUITS IN DANCER.
Mr. John R. Murdoch, of the well-known
florists firm, was asked yesterday to give his
opinion as to the likelihood of danger to grow
ing crops by the excessive rainfall of the last SO
days. Mr. Murdoch said: "Unless dry weather
comes within a week, the effect will be dis
astrous on growing crops, vegetables and flow
ers. Fruits are already rendered tasteless and
insipid by the lack of sunshine and excers of
moisture. The aroma of Western Pennsylva
nia berries is absent. Potatoes are rotting in
tne ground, ana cabbages are sadly auectea
with bugs, and the beauty of the flowers has
been all washed out. Roses open prematurely
and rot quickly, and seeds do not germinate
properly. Only lately grass seed has picked np
a little. It is too early to judge what the effect
will be on grapes and apples. Cereal crops are
in great danger af rust, and corn suffers by
lack of cultivation. Plants enjoy a modicum
of water, but can get a surfeit very easily. I
think that agriculture in Western Pennsylva
nia andOhio is eoing to suffer bythe thousands
of dollars unless the wet weather ceases within
a week. As it is a great deal of damage has
THE MARVEL OF THE TIME.
Roilwny Reconstruction That Bents AH
Records The Pcnniy's Work Beyond
All Ordinary Comprehension,
Owing to the fearful loss of life in the Cone
maugh Valley, the enormous losses of the rail
roads, and of the Pennsylvania in particular,
have been to a degree overlooked: but the
rapid manner in which the great trunk line
was put in running shape once more, is now the
universal subject of comment.
During the first few days of the flood Super
intendent Miller, of the Panhandle, estimated
the losses of the Pennsylvania from the floods
at $20,000,000; but these figures have been mate
Not only did this road suffer between Johns
town and Lilly in the mountains, but nearly
every bridge in the Susquehanna and Juniata
valleys was washed away. The writer has been
over the main line to Harrisburg, and the
Northern Central to Renovo, and can speak
Scarcely a week had elapsed after the flood
when the Pennsylvania was running its trains
over the Allegheny Valley and the Philadel
phia and Erie. The most serious break in this
line was the bridge over the Susquehanna at
Montgomery, which had been washed away.
Vico President Frank Thompson personally
superintended the construction of the tempo
rary structure at this place.
In the same rapid way temporary bridges
were built through the Juniata Valley. Where
the road had been washed out the rails were
replaced in remarkably quick time.
But it was between Johnstown and South
Fork, of course, that the most serious damage
was wrought. Scarcely a vestige of the road
remained. The big viaduct near South Fork
was a perfect wreck, and here is where the
most wonderful piece of engineering was ac
complished. The timbers for the trestle were
cut all along the road and soon put in. The
bridge as it stands now is 85 feet high, with a
yawning chasm below. It is constructed on a
curve, ana is marveled at by everybody who
The Pennsylvania officials have practically
uum, mure man an ordinary railroad witmn
the past few weeks, and it only indicates the
wonderful resources of the great corporation.
Superintendents .Pitcairn and Tramp looked
after the construction of the road in Western
Pennsylvania, and Division Passenger Agent
Colonel Thomas E. Watt did gallant service in
caring for the living.
Colonel Watt is still out on the road. He an
nounced yesterday that the Chicago limited
would be resumed next Monday. Between Al
toona and Harrisburg the trains are almost
able'to make schedule time. Between Altoona
and Pittsburg the trains lose a few hours; but
they keep moving. Seldom are they held for
any great length of time. It will be a long
time before the world will witness such rapid
railroad building as the Pennsylvania has re
IT WAS MIXED.
Democrats and Independents Got a Bnlce
on Council Elections.
Though covering less area, the contests for
Council seats made vacant by resignation, and
alluded to in brief results yesterday, were not
less exciting than those to determine whether
the State shonid be wet or dry. Dr. Barchfield
is said to be the happiest man m the Twenty
sixth ward. The doctor thinks he hasn't had a
fair show in politics, and so decided to rejoice
with them who rejoice. Various reasons are
assigned for Mr. William Bradley's defeat.
One is that his brother, the prothonotary. gave
the contract to build a house to people who
were not en rapport with the trades, and this
contributed. Generally speaking, the result
was unexpected. Bradlev's vote was 672, and
Herman F. Steinecke's 6oT. The election was
to till the vacancy in Common Council caused
by Rnhlandt's resignation.
A. T. Watson, Chairman of the Democratic
County Committee, was eiected to Select Coun
cil to fill the vacancy caused by M. D. uwyer's
resignation. Watson got 142 votes to S3 for
Simon Garrard, Republican.
In the Second ward Mr. Getty's place was
filled by the election of John McAlasters King,
Republican, over Robert J. Hemlngray, Inde
pendent, bv a vote of 422 to 227.
in tne una ward, John c. Kelily. Democrat,
had a walkover, laying out his opponent, M. J
Price, more than two to one.

THEYOUNS IDEA BIAS
The Lutheran, Synod Debated the
Feasibility of Following
THE CATHOLIC PLAN OF GROWTH,
Attaching Toulh to the Church, But no
"Definite Action Thereon.
AKNITBRSABX EXERCISES 1AST NIGHT.
The Lutheran Synod was mainly .occupied
yesterday in the discussion of educational mat
ters. General Secretary Jev. M. F.. Troxell
read the biennial report of the Board of Educa
tion, and Rev. Dysinger, President of Carthage
College, Illinois, gave a statement of the status
of that institution. Hon. Amos Miller, of
HUlsboro. D.I., reported that the Board of Ed
ucation had acquired during the past two
years property worth over $60,000. This in
cludes a gift of 25 acres of college grounds and
building lots at Atchison, Kan.; the Midland
College, buildings and appurtenances and the
academy grounds at Wayne, Neb., and a culti
vated farm in Kansas.
The resolutions recommended bythe Board
of Education were considered, and some of
them energetically debated. Rev. F. W. Con
rad, D. D., of Philadelphia, urged the formative
power of academies and colleges to raise up
Christian teachers, and held that the church
ought to outstrip the munificence of State and
friends of secular education to furnish cham
pions of the faith to wrestle with educated
At the afternoon session the Treasurer was
authorized to pay out of the regular Synod
treasury the expenses of the Board of Educa
tion In attending its meetings during 18SS and
1SS9, and it was decided that expenses be here
after paid by the Board. The Treasurer was
authorized to borrow $500, tbo amount of these
expenses, from the Board of Publication.
The Synod ratified the official acts of the
Board of Education.
Dr. Orth wanted to know the relation sus
tained by the Board nf Trustees of Midland
College toward the Board of Education, and
which board had control of the college prop
erty. Dr. Rhoades replied that the Board of
Education could not transfer the property to
the Board of Trustees until the college was
thoroughly established, and that it was not the
intent of the Board of Education to hold the
property permanently. The people of Atchi
son, Kan., had subscribed over SoO.000 to. the
support of the college.
Prof. Ehrenfeld asked if the Board of Edu
cation was at any expense to sustain the
academy at Wayne, Neb., and whether it was
the policy of the board to found academies as
feeders to the Midland College. Dr. Rhoades
said the Nebraska Synod had donated seven
acres of land and a $5,000 building for the
academy. The property is to be deeded to the
General Synod after ten years. In return the
Synod is to sustain the academy.
AS TO PAEOCHIAL EDCCATIOIT.
Prof. Ehrenfeld thought that at present the
public schools were better qualified to fit
students for college than were academies, as
the former had the best apparatus, ana he
stirred up some discussion by his remarks.
Dr. Conrad wanted children taucht positive
Christianity, wanted academies where they
could learn the doctrines of tjje Lutheran
Dr. Ehrenfeld didn't want the Lutheran
Church to follow the example of the Roman
Catholic Church in taking its children by the
nape of the neck, if necessary, to put them into
Rev. Barnltz reported the wealth of the
Lordsburg College, in tne Santa Fe Railway
between Los Angeles and Ocean Grove, Cal.,
to be $75,000 in property and an endowment of
President Dysinger, of Carthago College
asked for $4,000 to help clear away a debt of 88,
000. The request was granted. President Dy
singer stated that the college property was
valnedat over $38,000. It has over 100 pupils
and has graduated over 30 ministers during a
few years past.
At tha avontip cocelnn tt,A Rav T R riaf-
weiler, D. D of Omaha, Neb., delivered an ad
dress on "xne cnristian college. Among
other things he said:
Christian education Is a necessltv. In manv of
onr public schools the- Bible cannot be even
properly read. It would be a sorry day for
America were all educational Institutions free en
tire! v from the control of the Church. The world
needs no education different trom evangelization.
Colleges must hare vthe expansive missionary
spirit. The richest of our colleger has only 00.
000 endowment. Money is not the only endow
ment. A corps of teacbers working for Christ is
a great endowment. The Bible should not be an
optional etudv, but should be necessary for
rradaation. The aim of the Board of Education
s to organize tbe scattered educational forces we
possess. With this organization we will make
great progress in the next 25 years.
