A Rotable Day at the" Grangers' Picnic at Williams' Grove. 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 tbe appeal. 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 children in tbe Hooded districts of the Cooemaueh Valle' led districts of the Cooemaueh Vallev. To show that it is hopeless to expect the people here 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 iams' Grove. (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 ti range. COLD WATER CRAZV. A Disappointed Prohibitionist Goes.Insane Over the Reiatt. ISrXCIAI.

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.

Senator InfalU Take a Tland la on Blec trlclty-Gaa Campany Flgnt. 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. Sir. Batcbeller Sara This Administration Won't Allow Any Hard Times. 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 u unuuuiiu panic uuaer mis administra tion."
