Lookout Mountain, Tenn., Nov. 13.
Thus far the Governor's excursion has
been a supreme success. The entire
party seems like one big family. Peo
ple Introduce themselves to each other,
muke excursions Into the Governor's
car, chat, laugh, exchange Jokes, con
fectionery and flowers, and conduct
tnemselves in general like a company of
merry picnickers. The meals In the
dining- coach are an achievement that
is truly mnrvelous; such excellent ser
vice Is seldom seen In a first-class hotel
and the menus are elegant In the ex
treme. We have game, and the rarest
and daintiest made dishes Imaginable,
and. meal-tlmes are really most enjoy
able In a social way.
We loft Harrlsburg at 4.30. There are
about 152 persons on board this mag
nlHcent train of Pullman palace ears.
The appointments are gorgeous anil
most elaborate and consequently every
one Is good natured, as there is nothing
to find fault about.
Mr. and Mrs.Willlam Connell are hon
ored In being provided with a handsome
stateroom In the apartment car set
aside for the justices of the Supreme
court. Colonel Ripple Is with the staff
ofllcers, who, as one of the members re
joices In the name of Epworth, are
dubbed Epworth Leaguers. They have
a very jolly time, and many tales are
told of the merriment in their car.
We passed through Carlisle, received
an ovation from the pupils of the Sol
diers' Orphans' Industrial School at
Scotland. and in the night passed Cham
bersburg, Hagerstown, Md., Antictnm,
Hiverton, Front Royal.Luray.Va.. Shen
andoah, Basic, Kuena Vista, Natural
Bridge and Roanoke. Here we stopped
for a long time. The Norfolk and West
ern engine was unablo to move the
heavy train except by sections and we
were delayed four hours. However, as
we were asleep during the standstill we
didn't worry. One thing we are im
pressed with or rather two things the
fine hotels and the fine school houses
along tho route.
Hope for tho South.
' There seems to be great hope for the
South, in that they build perfectly im
mense structures of both kinds. Per
haps they don't have quite so many
giddy terra cotta frills, fancy towers,
or anacreontic adornments on as aro
seen on Scranton school houses, but
they do build them big enough for the
enforcement of the compulsory law.
At Bristol, Tenn., where we stopped a
short time, the municipal conditions are
peculiar. The main street Is on the
state line, consequently many compli
cation arise In Judicial matters. Crimes
committed in Tennessee may be evaded
by a step over into Virginia. There are
two court houses, two Jails, two munici
Johnson City, Tenn., Greenville, Mor
rlstown, Knoxvllle, Lonuon and Cleve
land were passed and wo arrived In
Chattanooga at 7 p. m., four hours late.
We took electric cars for Lookout
Mountain, and if some of our party
could have seen the route we should
probably have heBltated to attempt It.
At least, Mr. Connell declared this
morning as he drew a long breath after
landing safely at the foot of the plane,
that it was a temptation of Providence
and he hoped ' to be forgiven
for trusting life to a suspicious looking
cable. However, as It has been In
operation for eight years and as one
of the engineers remarked. ' Nebber
killed nobody yet," tourists seem to
feel reasonably calm In riding down
the frightful grade, where almost over
hangs the precipice, hundreds of feet
below. , ., .
Lookout Inn is situated on the tip top
of the great mountain, and has ac
commodations for 600 persons. It Is a
magniflclent spectacle from every
point of view. The rooms are of the
loftiest description. The governor held
a reception last evening In the groat
hall, where the scene was brilliant In
the extreme, although none of our
party were In evening dress. The Clm
tanooga ladles were handsomely, at
tired, and splendid roses and chrysan
themums were seen everywhere. That
hall Is finely adapted for rfuch an af
fair. It Is broad and spacious and ex
tends far In every direction Into wide
corridors. Over one entrance Is a battle
device of a collection of crossed arms.
There Is much beautiful carved oak
and fret work, and handsome furnish
ings. Not Particularly Sunny.
But talk about the Sunny South! Tho
thermometer registered 36 degrees
above sero last night, and tho big,
huge bedrooms were freezlngly cold.
But few are steam heated, and al
though radiators are In the halls, cor
ridors and reception rooms, the private
apartments aro. furnished with grates
where a rousing fire of fat pine and
soft coal is started, which soon burns
out to blackness. The management
was not prepared for the big influx of
visitors as the Manufacturer's club of
ninety-eight members arrived too, and
some of our party were obliged to go
back to our cars for the night. One
member of the commission went to
bed and was fast going to sleep under
nice, heavy blankets. Just then a per
son, who announced that Bhe was a
maid, tore Into his room, as he had neg
lected to properly fasten the door,
grasped the blanket and rushed away
with them. The bereaved and startled
victim managed as best he could
through the chilly night, but was sur
prised the next day to discover the
vandal to be not a maid but a guest of
the house. He now wonders If she Is
a new woman. .
Our governor Is the biggest man
we've yet seen. He towers head and
shoulders above everybody and his
commanding and dignified appearance
seem fitting as appertaining to the
chief executive of a great state. Mrs.
Hastings Is also stately In appearance
arid her charming personality, and nf
fablo manners always attract those
who meet her. ' .
She looked very lovely this morning
as we left Lookout Inn. She wore a
gray tailor-made gown, a heavy long
sealskin cape, with full capes and huge
collar, and a big black velvet hat, cov
ered with plumes.' Bhe had a great
bunch of American beauty roses
gainst her face and they heigh ted the
pretty collor of 'her cheeks and her
smiling Hps. -
I forgot to say that as we arrived
at the plaza fronting Lookout Inn last
night, the governor and our party were
greeted by two lines of Pittsburg cadets
In gray uniform, - who played a drum
and fife salute, . a

SNAKE CilASES A JUDGE.
His Uonor Leaves tho Court-Room via the
Owosso, Mich, Nov. 15. A vicious rat
tlesnake, five feet long, caused a lively
scene in Judge Uyerly's court room to
day, and even forced the dignified judge
to make his exit by the fire escape: - A
traveling museum man, George Steven
son, accused Robert Hldsworth of steal
ing a racoon and rattlesnake from him
and selling them to saloon proprietors.
Stevenson's show could not go on with
out the raccoon and rattler and he In
sisted that the two be produced In
court. The police had no trouble In lo
cating the property, but In getting the
box containing the rattlesnake Into
court they loosened some of the bars,
although they did not know tt at the
time. The raccoon was perfectly at
home In the court room, but the rattler
seemed to be a little annoyed and
finally enlivened the heated atmosphere
of the judical chamber by crawling out
of his box and becoming very demon
strative. The sheriff attempted to kill the
snake by heaving the statutes of Michi
gan at him, but his aim was bad, and
the sheriff retreated with the lnwyers
nnd the rest of the crowd. Judge Hycr
ly appeared to be the particular object
of the snake's hatred, and It miule for
the bench. Although Judge llyerly
was Hip lighting cuptaln of the famous
Fifth Michigan cavalry all through the
war he had no taste for a fight with a
snake, and rapidly climbed for the win
dow, with the rattler In hot pursuit.
The Judge managed to get outside, and
climbed down the fire escape. After an
hour of cautious work on the part of the
police the rattler was secured wlthou..
having done any serious damage, nut
all the parties to the suit were too much
shaken to continue, and the. case went
over until tomorrow.
STATE B0ABllif HEALTH.
Questions Considered at tho llarrisbnrg
Meeting - Plans to Prevent tho Overflow
of tho Susqiichnnnn.
Harrlsburg, Pa., Nov. 15. A special
meeting of the state board of health
will bo called In a few woeks to con
sider several Important mutters which
were temporarily laid on the table at
the meeting today. Secretary Lee's re
port embodied so many suggestions
that the board found It Impossible to
act upon all at the regular meeting.
The one question which deeply con
cerns the members la how to Becure the
co-operation of local authorities in en
forcing sanitary regulations. A resolu
tion was adopted today providing that
where ther are no health authorities"
Infected places shall be placarded un
der the suiervislon of the county med
ical inspector of his deputy. A regula
tion was also adopted requiring graves
In populous district to be six feet In
depth nnd In rural communities four
feet. Complaints came to tho board of
corpses being unearthed by dogs owing
to the graves not being over two feet
deep. The responsibility of tanneries
for creating nuisances nnd endanger
ing human life will be Investigated. As
sociated boards of health In each coun
ty as in Lackawanna are commended.
The plan of John A. Fulton, of Johns
town, for preventing tho destructive
overflows of the Susquehanna at Wlll
iamsport Is endorsed by tho board
which will call tho next sanitary con
vention at Wllliamsport to arouse in
terest in the project. Tho plan pro
posed Is the raising of the bunks of
the river to the highest water mark
thirty-three, feet by changing the rail
road tracks and removing obstructions
In the bed of the stream. Bridges
would have to be raised and new em
bankments mnde. The estimated cost,
exclusive of tho expense of the railroad
changes. Is 550.000.
The board is particularly Interested
In protecting the water supplies of the
state nnd legislation will be urged at
the next session of the legislature.
WILL BORROW MORE GOLD.
New York Hankers Will Probably Re
Colled I'pon for S2S.OOO,flO(.
New York, Nov. 15. It In rumored
that the treasury department has com
municated with New York bankers
with a view to making nn arrangement
for the restoration of tho gold' reserve.
The propsltlon Is that when the reserve
falls to $75,000,000 the banks slinll fur
nish SL'u.OOO.OOO In gold, for which they
will receive 4 per cent, bonds on a 3
per cent, basis.
The Idea Is regarded with favor by
the banks, as they would rather supply
gold than experience unother financial
Thomas B. Reed, who Is slated for
speaker of the house of representatives,
has spent some time In New York re
cently discussing currency questions
with bankers. He, It Is said, has In
timated that he will oppose the pro
posed retirement of the greenbacks by
an Issue of bonds. He found that bank
ers as a rule objected to the wiping out
of the greenbacks if there is to be no
other form of money to take their place.
While the treasury statement shows
$346,0(10.000 of greenbacks outstanding,
experts estimate thnt the amount In
netual circulation Is less than $300,000,
DISRUPTION IN A COLLEGE.
Faculty and Students Clnsh-Prcsidcat
Lansing, Mich., Nov. 15. The state
board of agrlcultiire.the faculty and the
students of the state agricultural col
lege seem to be vying with each other
to bring disaster to the college. Two
weeks ago a number of students left the
college because a fellow student was
suspended by the faculty for an Infrac
tion of the rules, and now President
Gorton has been dismissed by the board
upon his refusal to resign.
The president waB told that he lacked
discipline and the necessary tact to
produce harmony In t'.io faculty. C. J.
Monroe, of South Haven, a member of
the board, was temporarily Installed as
president of the college.

Under the Influence of Liquor He
Kills Three of His Children.
MAKES A BLl'FP AT SlICIDE
Despondent Over the Sudden and Alys
terious Departure of His Wife. F.lwya
Drowns Ills Sorrow In Murder.
Cuts the Throats of the Babies.
Phenlxvllle, Pa., Nov. 15, A hor
rible tragedy was enacted here this af
ternoon, at tho humble homo of Thomas
Klwyn at this place. Klwyn Is a pud
dler, aged 60, and worked In the Phoe
nlxvltle Iron mill. Last Friday El
wyn's wife left him and fulled to come
back. No one knew where she went
and her husband and five children were
left to take care of themselves. Things
went wrong about the house In the
wife's absence and Klwyn became
greatly disheartened. When his oldest
boy, Robert, came home at 1.30 o'clock
this afternoon, he was horrified to find
in the father's bed the bodies of his
father and his young brother and sister,
Agnes, aged six years, and Thomas,
aged 5, with their throuts cut from ear
to ear. The children were dead and the
father was thought to be In a dying
condition. He was taken to the hospi
tal. The other two children were away
from homo at the time. The bodler
were still warm when found. Elwyn
had been drinking hard in consequence
of his domestic troubles.
Elwynt who was removed to the hos
pital this afternoon with a terrible gash
in his throat. Is doing well. The at
tending physician this evening says the
cut Is not necessarily dangerous and he
Is likely to recover.
Couso of Trouble,
Tho children were seen y neighbors
playing about the houso as late as 11
o'clock. Although the would-be-suicide
has been drinking recently he was solicr
last night. The two dead children were
staying with friends at Norrlstown but
were brought home by Klwyn yester
day. He returned on the midnight
train on the Pennsylvania railroad and
to another passenger proposed that he
and the passenger' kill the children,
tils plan was to get on the train at
Mont Clair and batter the heads of the
children on the abuttmenta of the rail
road bridge over the Schuylkill river
and disposed of the bodies In the bottom
of the river.
Elwyn was separated from his wife
on account of another man named
Khoads who was very intimate with
Elwyn's wife. She stopped going
with Rhoads about two months
ago, but later went off with
him taking two children with
her. He went to see her at Norrlstown
and pleaded with her to return to their
home, but) she refused and this Is
thought to have decided Elwyn to com
mit the deed. The other children were
Robert, aged 13, George, aged 8, Laura,
aged 18, and Norawood, a sJpson.
aged 22. 1
NOT A FILIBISTERErJ
Coptoln llnghos, of tbe Laurada, Denies
tho Accusation Made by the Spanish
Minister Dopay do l.omo.
Washington, Nov. 13. The Spanish
minster. Honor Dupuy De Lome, hus
called the attention of the state de
partment to tho rumor that the Ameri
can steamer Laurada had violated the
neutrality laws In landing an armed
force on Cuban soil. Secretary Olney
has transmitted Senor De Lome's pro
test to the treasury department and
Secretary Carlisle toduy telegraphed
collectors of customs along the Atlan
tic coast to look out for the Laurada
and to seize her wherever found. The
department of Justice had also been
advised of Minister De Lome's com
munication and the United States mar
shals have been Instructed to co-operate
with the treasury officials In de
taining the vessel when found. Cap
tain Hughes, her commander is said to
have left his ship and his whereabouts
Secretary Carlisle Is very much Im
pressed with the evidence that has been
submitted to him by the Spanish min
ister regarding the Laurada and is us
ing every means in his power to find the
alleged filibustering vessel.
Charleston, H. C. Nov. 15. The steam
ship Laurada. Captain Samuel Hughes,
from Now York, to take a cargo of
pyrites cinders for Philadelphia, ar
rived In this harbor this afternoon. The
vessel should have been In Charleston
several days ago by her contract, but
she was delayed In Cuba by taking on
passengers. Upon her arrival, libel
proceedings against her for $10,000 were
begun by Messrs. Trenholm and Rheet
on behnlf of John 13. Kerr, of New
York. The allegation Is that a cargo of
freight was spoiled on board the
Laurada by reason of delays occasioned
by the vessel stopping to take on pas
sengers In Cuba.
If there are, or have been, any con
traband goods aboard of her, there are
no signs of It. Captain Hughes said to
night that the stories about the Laura
da being a filibuster were started by
Spnnlsh sailors with whom he had diffi
culties. KITTEN SURVIVES DISASTER

- Washington, Nov. 16. Claude M.
Johnson, chief of the bureau of en
graving and printing, treasury depart

Carllsila, of the operation of bit bu

of successful counterfeiting to a very
NOT READY FOR WAR.
Admiral Walker Says Wo Need More
Washington, D. C, Nov. 15. The de
fenseless condition of the American
coast, which the General of the army
has recently elaborated with much pre
cision of detail. Is for the moment the
principal subject of conversation among
army and naval olllcers.
Admiral John G. Walker, who repre
sents the progressive clement of the
new navy, regards coast defenses and a
navy as the complement of each other.
"I am a good American," said Ad
miral Walker, "but I cannot shut my
eyes to cold facts. We are not prepared
to-day to engage In war with any llrst
class Power. We are In the positon
that China occupied In her recent strug
gle with Japan. 'We have a vast popu
lation, great wealth, and boundless re
sources and Intense patriotism. But
we cannot maintain an offensive or de
fensive attitude against any one of half
a dosen foreign countries. While Gen
eral Miles says about the defenseless
conditon of our coast cities Is entirely
correct. It is true that New York and
San Francisco are better protected than
our other commercial cities, but even
they would be helpless against the as
saults of .a dozen powerful Ironclads.
So far as the remaining cities are con
cerned they have no protection what
ever." "What do you think the Government
ought to do?"
vCongress ought to make liberal ap
propriations for coast defense and for
additional ships of war. More than any
thing else, we need a strong navy. If
we had a dozen battleships of the In
diana class on the Atlantic coast we
could defy as powerful a maritime
country as Great Britain. We have
now four battleships building and two
others have been appropriated for. We
need at least seven more."
EFFECT OF THE 0LI) SCARE.
It Has Been Felt Along the l.lncs of Trade.
Weekly Review by R. G. Dun and Com
pany. New York, Nov. 14. R. O. Dun and
company will say tomorrow In their
weekly review of trade:
The scare about gold exports had no
real significance and although $2,250,000
more will go out, the stock market has
been recovering. The collapse of Kaf
fir speculations abroad has forced
many to realize on Americans held, and
the impression that our government
may have to borrow again also operat
ed to our disadvantage. Stocks aro

Wheat perplexes the oldest Inhabit
ant. There Is really little reason to ex
pect a yield larger than last year, but
western receipts, 8.202.SK4 bushels,
against 4,026.6.10 last year, do not mean
scarcity of wheat. Probably It is true
that the attempt to Induce farmers to
kiop back their wheat In July has end
ed, as usual, in much bigger sales at
lower prices In November, and prices
have now declined so far that the first
time In many months, Atlantic exports
exceed those of a year ago. The de
cline, nearly 1 cent Is not much but
does not mean confidence In advance.

Tho output of pig Iron Nov. 1, was
217,1106 tons weekly about 10 per cent,
larger than ever before, and continu
ance of tho same production for six
weeks more would make the half years
output 6.H50.01K) tons, about 450,000 tons
greater than any other half year. The
startling fact is that tho demand for
products of iron and steel falls off, not
withstanding the Increase In output of
pig. and though only a few concerns
have closed or reduced work or wages
on account of lack of orders, prices aro
sinking, having declined 2.7 per cent
for the week, and 6.4 per cent, from
the highest point.
The volume of domestic trade ap
pears from clearing house exchanges

earnings of rallroadn, 2.6 per cent,

The report that the Sultan Intends to
recall Shakir Pasha, the Turkish high
commissioner for Armenian reforms,
from Krzerum, and eventually appoint
him grand vizier, is not yet confirmed
by his actual recall, but It is persist

The report of a serious outbreak at
Slvas Is confirmed. The rioting was
attended by great bloodshed, but order
has been partially restored, and the
Turkish ofllclals are protecting the for

situation Is anticipated for several
days to come.

TOM J0MS0VS FRANK.

ing the Printing Bureau. '
Detroit, Mich, Nov. 15. When BBked
about tho Washington dispatch to the
New York Sun about the misuse of his
frank, ex-Congressman Tom Johnson
said, after reading the dispatch: "There
la no truth in It, so far as I know. Of
course, some one may have stolen my
stamp or may have had one made, or
my clerk may have let some one use It.
A stamp costs 25 cents only. While I
am not a member of the present con
gress, my frank Is good until congress
meets. It Is e.nsy to get up a story of
that kind, which would look bad to
those who do not understand the ques
tion of public documents and the frank
As to the agricultural department
books, Mr. Johnson said that there were
no farmers among his constituents and
he had no use for those agricultural re
ports. A Missouri congressman,' Will
iams, he thought, asked him for his
quota of agricultural documents and as
ho had a lot of documents which would
Interest his (Johnson's) Cleveland con
stituents, their clerks made a trade,
which Is a common practice. He, did
not know what became of his agricul
tural reports thereafter, .The agricul
tural department books, which he trad
ed to the Missouri congressman, have
the right to be franked and It did not
matter whether he wrote his namo on
the envelopes, used a stamp, or let his
clerks or some one else use a stamp. It
was all the same. .
Mr. Johnson said there was an abuse
of the public document system, more
thnn fifty per cent, of the books sent
out from the government printing office
being trash. He had known Congress
men to sell their documents rather than
trade them on to other congressmen for
literature that can be distributed iO
good advantage. This he considered
dishonorable, but thought the system
of trading all right. Another abuse
with the government documents is the
tons and tons of old books at the capl
tol which were never taken by the sen
ators and representatives to whom they
belonged. Mnny of the owners have
long been dead. Among them are some
really valuable publications and he pre
sumed that the most valuable are quiet
ly shipped out from time to time.
Mr. Johnson said that be had done his
share of franking. He Bald that he had
"protection and free trade" printed as
speeches In tho congressional record
and sent out 1.700,0;o copies In book
form under his frank. He worked it
knowing the system to be wrong, but he
had taken advantage of the wrong to
do what he thought would be good. -
Every speech he made In congress
was as much of a single tax essay as he
could make and he hud sent out more
than 3,000,000 of those speeches through
the mulls under hlB frank.
