.Viewers for Seventh Street Made
Too High an Award.
City Solicitor Watson will send In n
communication to common council to
night advising that an appeal be taken
from tho award of the viewers who
agreed upon the valuation of the land
condemned by the city for the widen
ing of Scranton street at the corner of
Seventh. These a're the snm viewers
whose bill caused such a protest In the
auditing committee on Monday night.
Tho award which they made was
$700. Assistant City Solicitor Davis,
who repreented the city at the hear
ings, contends that $3.'0 would more
Ulinn compensate J. M. Helm, the
owner, and bellsvcs that an appeal
should be taken.
The argument Is advanced that Mr.
Helm should only be allowed a suffi
cient amount to build n retaining wall
and lay a sidewalk, as the widening
of tho street will greatly enhanc? the
value of the rest of his property.
Weather Observer Clarke Will Read
Paper at Milwaukee J. Jj. Dart-
lett to Assist Him Here.
Weather observer Frederic II.
Clarke will be In Milwaukee, Wis.,
during next week, In attendance at
the fourth annual convention of Uni
ted States weather bureau officials.
Mr. Clarke will read a paper during
the session.
The conventjon Is to be on Import
ant one. as many questions of the
utmost Importance will coino up for
discussion. Among these will be the
suggested advisability of having the
managers attached to stations resi
dents of the city, Instead of successful
ilvll service applicants.
The position Is a minor one and
mote or less difficulty Is experienced
In finding out-of-the-city men who
will leave their homes nnrl travel hun
dreds of miles to strange cities, when?
the living expenses will completely eat
up the salary, whereas, no trouble
would be experienced In finding desir
able young men living In the cities,
where the station Is located.
It Is likely that the convention will
adopt resolutions In favor of the resi
dent system. During Mr. Clarke's ab
sence, James I.. llartlett will have
charge of the local station. Mr. Hart
lett's last post was nt Havana, Cuba,
but at present he Is on leave of nh
senee. He will continue here, as Observer
Cl.uke's nssltant, on Mr. Clarke's re
turn from Milwaukee. Mr. Clarke has
been doing double duty lately, as the
result of the absence of an assistant.
Halsey Dtinwoodlo, who formerly
acted in that capacity, but Is now a
"plehe" nt West Point academy and
will take the full course at the mlll
tarv institution.
He left hero last month on a short
leave of absence and wont to West
Point, where ho took nnd passed the
entrance examinations and physical
Instiictli.'is. He was nppoiittol alter
nate some months ago, and his prin
cipal failed to pass the physical ex

sons, laboring under the delusion that
ho wns a deserter from the t'nlted
States navy, gave himself up to Pn
trolman Connery early yesterday morn

and swum nshnre. He had his clothes
on a board which he pushed In front of
him, but they fell overboard nnd when
he rt ached shore ho wns obliged to
don nn old pair of overalls and a coat
which he found on the docks. At tho
tlmo of his escape he was under Im
prisonment for running uwny a short
time before.
Superintendent of Police Holding
wired the authorities nt the navy yard
that Parsons wns locked up here and
asked that some one be sent for him.
He received a reply to the effect that
