hotels, and it is
clear that tho
CAPT, H. O. KANE, OF big ShOW will not
H. M. e. CALLIOPE, be a bad thing for
this cubital, for most of tho visitors tarry
for days or weeks.
As to tho exhibition I am under the
Impression there has been some mis
management or rather lack of manage
ment. Tho whole staff of tho University
of Commerce and tho immense number
of special agents appointed for the exhi
bition devoted themselves to tho erec
tion and organization of this show for
months, or rather for years. Time,
to be wanting. Yet, when the opening
day came, ue exhibition was not ready.
Every paper i .d letter relating to this
gigantic work was beyond doubt written,
sent, received, noted, answered, indorsed
and filed, but the object for which all
this ink and energy had been oxpended
was not attained. Tho ceremony of
opening had been workod out with equal
minuteness on paper, and with a similar
result. The program broke down at
every point ".more a strain came. It was
a simple ceremony, hut it could not be
carried through. The organizers of it
allowed for everything but human na
ture. They dealt with human beings as
if they were so many machines. The
president, his staff, his ministers, the
delegates of the senate and other great
bodies of state were to walk in proces
sion through the exhibition or part of it.
The publlo were to stand and look on.
The public deollned to do anything of the
sort. As soon as they saw that the
paper program was of paper only they
tore it to pieces, broke up the procession,
joined it and laughed in the horrified
faces of the solemn ushers, whoso silver
chains wore the disregarded symbols of
That shows one weak sido of the ad
ministrative system, as applied to this
single day of organized pageantry. Others
were not loss visible. It will be agreed
that an exhibition without exhibitors
would hardly be a greater success than
Thier's republic without Republicans.
But so great was the desire for symmetry
iu the official mind that on the opening
day it was not found possible to distin
guish between the exhibitors and tho
general public. The doors of his own ex
hibition were closed in his face. The
whole red-tapo system was summed up
all unconsciously in the answer of a po
lioeman to an innocent exhibitor vainly
seeking admission to look after his own
goods. "On n' expose pas aujourd' hui."
These gentlemen were not thought en
titled to any courtesy ; thoy came within
no official category. The fact that their
property was left at the mercy of an ex
cited multitude in no way concerned
tho officials responsible for regulating
the details of the ceremony. Up to the
time of opening exhibitors had pusses.
Then these passes ceased to bo vallid. In
the caspf American exhibitors, applica
tion had been made by the American
commission to the proper authorities, and
it is supposed that tickets for the open
ing of the exhibition will be sent before
tho time comes to close it. Meantime,
the feeling among exhibitors is that they
have been treated with scant courtesy.
They have suffered in their feelings, and
suffered as they think, in their business
interests. It is not to be supposed that
the officials of the University of Com
merce or of the exhibition itself meant
them to suffer in either. The fault is not
in the men; it is in the system they ad
minister, which does not permit them to
turn to the right or left; which has no
flexibility, no power of adaptation; makes
no allowance for circumstances; expects
circumstances to make allowance for it,
and to bend, ifWfflfc
while the system
preserves all its W
•rigidity unl m- Mf-' J

have already seen. Even journalists have
turned. X have heard many complaints
from the most long suffering of the hu
man raoe to whom frequent contact with
officialism of every sort has made all
minor ills easy to boar.
Still the fact remains that Paris has a
great show and that it is going into rap
tures about the Eiffel tower, which is one
of the greatest successes as a wonder of
the world that the world over wondered
at. Ido not at all admit that it is an art
heresy. It has the characteristics of ad
equacy and slncority. The outlines and
arches of the lower story are not seen ad
vantageously either from the grounds of
the exhibition, or from the neighboring
avenues. A great beauty of the tower is
the light boldness with which It springs
heavenward. One fancies that one almost
eees It shooting up. Then it stands so
firmly on ita feet, and it gives so strongly
the impression of strength. When lighted
.tip on tho opening night, and having a
three-colored lamp around one of the vast
are lights that shone on tho summit, It
was a grandiose symbol of tho march of
progress since 1789, when Paris was
'almly lighted at night with oil lanterns
'that hung over the middle gutters in the
streets, there being then no sideways,
and the middle channel nearly always
full of unsavory fluid. One cannot help
fseling when one looks up at the tower,
Or down from no matter whleh of its
platforms, that, as M. Chevreul cried the
last day he saw It, "Great 1B Sclenoe." It

There was not a single lady admitted
to Witness the ceremonial at Versailles.
(One saw nothing but mn, some of whom
wero girt with tri-colored soar fs, others
with tri-colored badges, all wearing the
clawhammer oout and wfalte necktie
(Which la the evening suit of a gentle
man and the working salt of the under
taker and the coffeehouse waiter. All
the honors wore for the politicians.
Madame Carnot and her personal friends
and relatives were placed In a gallery
round the circular hall In which M. Car
not and M. Tlrand delivered the inaugu
ral speeches. M. Carnot was In black,
but the broad red ribbon of the Legion of
Honor gave* a little brightness to his
figure. Madame Carnot had a tri-colored
dross so well oontrlved as not to look
staring. The national colors were, how
ever, softened with pink, sky blue and
the creamy white of old point lace.
Her coat was of blue brooado, her gown
of pink, Sevigne satin, and her hat of
white lace, trimmed with delicate pink
and blue spring flowers. The parasol
was made of alternate pieces of blue and
white satin, over which there was a
softening veil of lace, which was fes
tooned with old point at the edges. The
daughter of tho president was in pale
pink and blue satin, with a white cloak
of Nottingham lace.
M. Carn.ot Is a shy, gentle-mannered
man, though very firm in the discharge
of duty, whether disagreeable or agree
able. He looked another person at the
exhibition. There he displayed a sweet
dignity which showed that while lie
understood the greatness of his position,
ho kept his head level. Tho four horses
which drew his carriage were greatly ad
mired, and while the carriage was wait
ing for tho president, they were stroked
and otherwise caressed by all who could
got within stroking distance. Beautiful
creatures they were, of a light chestnut
color, and full of "go." The flattering
notice of which they wore the object
appeared to please them. They had tri
colored ribbons on the head parts of
their harness, and rosettos at tho blink
ers. The postillions and men servants
who sat in the rumble were in blue
jackets and coats, faced with red, and
white breeches. Tho caps of the postil
lions were white, facod with red and blue,
und the valets had tri-colored cockades on
their hats. Large tri-colored boquets
were thrown into the carriage as the
president passed under tho viaduct lead
ing from the grounds of the Trocadero to
those of the exhibition.

attained was not altogether from the
public subscriptions; but in a town like
Cheltenham support could be given not
only by money, but by books, whioh could
not be always bought. He did not ob
iect to novels, and would not refuse them
to the working classes, instead of the
vicious literature whioh prevailed.
W. L. Wyllie, the artist, has been made
an associate of the Royal Academy.
Among his best-known works, by means
of whieh he has steadily won his way to
the front rank among the artists of the
day, may be mentioned "Northern
Lights, "Tracking in Holland," "A Dutch
Canal," and others, in which his sympa
thy with Dutch scenes and Dutch skies
is displayed with considerable effect. A
more important work, "Sea Birds,"
which was exhibited first at the Royal
Academy in 1875 and afterwards at Paris
in 1878, attracted much notice. His
"Port of London," was exhibited at Bur
lington House in 1882, and in the follow
ing year he created a sensation with his
rendering of a part of the Thames, under
the title of "Toll, Glitter, Grime and
Wealth on a Flowing Tide." The picture
was at once purchased by the council of
the Royal Academy out of the Chantrey
liequest, and was thereby recognized as
one of the best pictures of the year. In
similar spirit, Mr. Wyllie painted "King
Coal," "The River of Gold," and other
works, in all of which the dignity ol
labor is recognized and realized.
I send also a picture of Oapt. Kane, of
H. M. S. Calliope, to whom attention was
so generally attracted in connection with
the Samoa disaster. Capt. Kane at

THE BREAKING OF THE DAM.
Unsuccessful Effort* to Save It—Story of the
' Engineer Who Saw it Go.
The following account of the breaking
of tho dam, from the lips of John G.
Park, Jr., a civil engineer who was en
gaged on the grounds of the South Fork
"On Thursday night the dam was in
perfect condition, and the water was not
within seven feet of the top. At that
stage the lake is nearly three miles long.
It rained very hard Thursday night I am
told, for I slept too soundly myself to hear
it, but when I got up Friday morning I
could see there was a flood, for the water
was over the drive in front of the club
house, and the level of the water in the
lake had risen until it was only four feet
below the top of the dam. I rode up to
the head of the lake and saw that the
woods were boiling full of water. South
Fork and Muddy Run which emptied into
the lake were fetching down trees, logs,
cut timber and stuff from a saw mill that
was up in the woods in that direction.
This was abont 4:30 o'clock. When I re
turned Co'. Unger, I lie president of the
club, hired twenty-two Italians, and a
number of farmers joined in to work on
the dam. Altogether thirty men were at
worK. A plough was run along the top
of the dam, and earth was thrown in the
face of the dam to strengthen it. At the
same time a channel was dug on the west
end of the dam to make a sluiceway there.
There was about three feet of shale rock
through which it was possible to cut, but
then we struck bed rock that it was im
possible to get into without blasting.
When we got the channel opened, the
water soon scoured down to the bed
rock, and a stream twenty feet wide and
three feet deep rushed out on that eud of
the dam, while the weir was letting an
enormous quantity on the other end.
Notwithstanding these outlets, the water
kept rising at the rate of about ten inches
"By 11:30 I had made up my mind that
it was impossible to save the dam, and,
getting on my horse, I galloped down
the road to South Fork to warn the peo
ple of their danger. The telegraph
tower is a mile from town, and I sent two
men there to have messages sent to Johns
town and other points below. I heard
that the lady operator had fainted when
she had sent off news, and had to be car
ried off. The people at South Fork had
ample time to get to the high grounds,
and they were able to move their furni
ture too. In fact only one person was
drowned at South Fork, and he while at
tempting to fish something from the Hood
as it rolled by. It was just 12 o'clock
when the telegraph messages were sent
out, so that the people of Johnstown had
over three hours' warning.
"As I rode back to the dam I expected
almost every moment to meet the lake
coming down on me, but the dam was
still intact, although the water had reach
ed the top. At about 1 o'clock I walked
over the dam. At that time the water
was three inches deep on it, and was
gradually eating the earth on the outer
face. As the stream rolled down the
outer face it kept wearing down the edge
of the embankment, and I saw it was
merely a question of time. I then went
up to the club house and got dinner, and
when I returned I saw that a great deal
more of the outer of the dam had
crumbled away. The dam did not give
way. At a rough guess I should say that
there were 60,000,000 tons of water in that
lake, and the pressure of that mass of
water was increased by floods from two
streams pouring into it, but the dam
would have stood it could the level of
the lake have been kept below the top of
of the dam. But the friction of the
water pouring over the dam gradually
wore it away from the outer face until
the top became so thin that it gave way.
"The break took place at 3 o'clock. It
was about ten feet wide at first and shal
low, hut now that the flood had made a
gap, it grew wider with increasing rapid
ity, and the lake went roaring down the
valley. That three miles of water was
drained out in forty-five minutes. The
downfalls of those millions of tons was
simply irresistable. Stones from the dam
and boulders in the river bed were car
ried for miles. Trees went down like you
might cut a mullein stalk with a swish of
your cane. It was a terrible sight to see
that avalanche of water go down that val
ley already choked with floods. Col.
Unger was completely prostrated by it
and was laid up at the club house sigk
from his experiences."
