AN APPEAL FOR AID
In Behalf of tho Public Schools

BEAVER'S IDEAS ON BUILDINGS.
A Rotable Day at the" Grangers' Picnic at
ALL THE KEWS F01I HEAEBI TOWKS
ISPICIAI. TILEQRAM TO TBI DISFATCH.1
Johnstowit, August 27. There are
hundreds ot school children here, bat no
means of aflording them an opportunity to
attend school, as the people are not able to
provide house, books and teachers. As it)
has been decided that none of the general
relief fund could be applied to that purpose,
a meeting of the directors in all the flooded
districts was held to-day, when it was re
solved to appeal to the school boards of the
State and to the beneTolent everywhere for
funds to carry on the work, and newspapers
tbrosgbout the country are requested to note
It is addressed to the Superintendents and
School Boards ot the Ktate of Pennsylvania.
and tbe charitable and benevolent people of
tbe country, in behalf of tbe school c
tbe Hooded districts of the Cooemaueh Valle'
led districts of the Cooemaueh Vallev.
To show that it is hopeless to expect the people
to provide for tbe wacts of the school
children. It is stated that tbe beautiful boroucn
of WoodTale was entirely washed away and
ine 5iu,uuu wortn 01 rcnooi property aestroyeu,
the only thine that was recovered being tbe
bell from the building.
Conemaugh borough lost all its ouildings,
books and apparatus to tbe value of 126,000,
and three-fourths of the taxable property was
destroyed. Cambria borough lost property to
.the value of 15,000, all it had. and three-fourths
of tbe taxable property was swept away. In
tbeso three boroughs there is neither school
nor books with which to begin school, nor
means of providing the same. Other districts
have been badly crippled.
After reciting tbe needs of tbe different dis
tricts, the appeal concludes; "Trie world can
see our extreme need of help. This appeal is
our last remedy.
The State Superintendent has advised ns to
challenge the tnends of education. We hope
the appeal will not be in rain. Let each teacher
and pupil do something for us. remembering
thattbeytbat give quickly give twice. If we
can tide it over this winter we will De able to
establish ourselves on a permanent basis."
Tbe appeal is signed by the representatives of
11 school districts in the washed-out territory,
and it is directed that all contributions be sent
to E. E. Higbie. Superintendent of Public In
struction, Harrisburg, by whom it will be ap
portioned to tbe different districts. The Board
of Trade held a meeting here this afternoon,
at which the following resolution was adopted:
"That this board appoint a committee of 15
persons to meet with the Councils and citizens,
of the several municipalities, and that said
committee counsel with Senators Cameron and
Quay and with Congressman Scull, and pre
pare and provide proper matter to procure aid
from ournational or StateUovernmentln dredg
ing our rivers and protecting their embank
ments. A letter from Governor Beaver to the Presi
dent of the Board of Trade was read, in which
the Governor takes tbe ground that the grade
ot tbe whole town should be raised, andadvisoi
that people should build on the hill tops. The
members of the board did not take kindly to
tbe Governor's idea, and the letter was filed
with but little discussion. The question of
building permanent bridges will be discussed
at a special meeting of Council to-morrow, and
something will likely result from the agitation.
GRANGERS OCT IN FORCE.
An Ideal Day at the Great FIcnIe at Will
(SrXCXIX TELEGRAM TO THE SISFXTCB.l
Williams' Grove, Pa August 27. This
was an ideal day for tbe Grangers to do tnelr
picknlcking and bartering. Tbe mornlng&pened,
cool and cloudy and the 2,000 campers In the
grove were fearing a rainy day. but about tho
time the early trains began to discharge
their loads of visitors the sun shone
out brightly and the day turned out Js.t
what all had been praying for. The attend
ance to-day was fully np to last year, the most
prosperous dav of the exhibition, bnt was
composed mainly of farmers and buyers from
tbe West and South. The rush from nearbv
points and from Central Pennsylvania never
"comss until Wednesday and Thursday. The
traA and private conveyances added fully
I0.W) to tbe regular population of the grove.
All, the machinery na in. full operation, and
the exhibitors report sales already.
Outside ot machinery the two most interest
ing features are the displays of agricultural
products from Franklin county, Kan., and
from Oregon. The latter exhibit was sent on
bv tbe State Board of Immigration, and com
prises more than 1,000 specimens of cereals,
fruits, wool ore, eta, and is daily visited by
thousands. The opening exercises of the week
were held in tbe big auditorium at 2 o'clock
this afternoon, and attracted a large audience.
Atanager K. w. Thomas, in making his addresr
vi welcome, apoKe oi the important position
now held by the farmers, and said that their
opinions were now so much respected and their
adverse vote so much feared, that before mak
ing any move the politicians now ask. "What
will the farmers think of itT"
He was followed by Hon. Leo Rhone, of
Center county, Worthy Master of the Bute
Orange. Mr. Rhone Is rpnvrinr. fmm
seveie spell of sickness, and made only a few
remarks congratulating the grangers and
farmers upon their progress, but promised to
be heard from further during the week upon
State finances and taxation. 8tate Senator
Girard C. Brown, of York, occupied tbe rest of
the afternoon session with an address to what
he termed an Agricultural Congress, dealing
mainly with matters of our State revenue. Hi
rapped the politicians of ooth parties over tbe
fingers harshly tor their failure to listen to tbe
demands oi the farmer for an equalization
of taxation. He said that out of the
W0,000,000 raised in Pennsylvania by taxes of
5S kindj- f uIIy lW.OOa.000 was from real estate.
Xbe farmer pays double his proportionate share
and the corporations only one-filth of their
share. The farmers in the audience loudly ap
plauded the speaker. To-night a R. Downing,
of M est Chester. Past Lecturer of the State
Grange, spoke upon woman's work in the

New Tobk, August 27. Helen Dauvray
isn't going to star alter all. The printing
and lithographs for her tour had been con
tracted for, and a part of them had even been
finished. The route had been booked until
alter the holidays, and Harry Miner, who
had arranged to send Hiss Dauvray out, had
engaged people for her support. Two
days ago Miss Dauvray, who is Mrs. John
M. Ward off the stage, visited Miner with
her lawyer and stated very frankly that Mr.
"Ward was opposed to her contemplated re
turn to the stage, and that she now desired
to respect his wishes. She came to Miner
prepared to make a financial settlement in
retnrn for her release, as an offset to the ex
pense he had incurred already.
Manager Miner found himself in an un
comfortable position, but he looked at the
matter sensibly, and at once informed Mrs,
Ward that he would release her, and with
out compensation either. He had rented
the Union Square for three weeks in Ooto
ber, at $2,900 a week, bnt he will try to dis
pose of the time to some other manager.

ISrECXU. TXLXQHJLM TO THS OtSrATCS.1
Washington, August 27. Senator In
galls, who is chief of the Senate Committee
on the affairs of the district 'of Columbia, to
day took a hand in the fight between the
Electric Power and Heat Company, of
Pittsburg, and the gas company by inform
ing the Commmissioners that they had best
go slow in granting to a foreign company
the privilege of tearing up the streets to lay
wires. The Senator oould not explain,
however, in what way it was more injurious
for a foreign company to do this than for a
domestic oompany. The troth is, the gas
company is principally composed of Phila
delphians, and there is hardly a corporation
doing business under a charter in this city
which is not as foreign in its composition as
the Electric Heat and Power Company,
which has several prominent gentlemen oi
'Washington in its membership.
Before making the contract with the elec
tric company the Commissioners laid the
whole matter before Attorney Biddle, coun
sel for the District, who 'decided that the
Commissioners could proceed as they have.
M PANIC FEARED.
Batcbeller Sara This Administration

ISrXCIAI. TXLXQBAM TO TIU DISPATCH.
WASHlNGTOir, August 27. At the
Treasury Department the report that specu
lators have bought $20,000,000 worth of
bonds for the purpose of cornering the mar
ket and forcing the Secretary qt the Treas
ury to pay a high premium is a subject for
amusement. "All we know about it," said
Assistant Secretary Batcheller to-day," is
that wo are getting all the bonds we wanl at
our own figures. If there has been any such
attempt as described it has failed. We got
2,000,000 of bonds yesterday at 128, our
own price, and already this morning we
have oilers of 52,000,000 more at the same
price. This is better than we have done be
fore. We can get all the bonds we want at
onr own price.
"There is no danger of a stringency in the
money market. There is now an abundance
of monev. With 52,000,000 a day going
into the Danks, I imagine no one expects a
stringency. Ton can depend upon it, the
TreasuryDepartment is not going to permit
