Fairly satisfied with the graft they worked
upon the weather so far this week , Uncle
Sam's weather men were content to settle
down yesterday to transact the business
for which they assembled In tbo city. They
seemed to bear an air of relief , finding them'
selves sitting In comfortable choirs at the
Commercial club , after the push and jam
and squeeze of the day before at the expo-
nltlon grounds. There was a good attend
ance , fully fifty representatives of the
bureau , covering all sections of the country ,
being present. Prof. Willis L. Moore of
Washington , chief of the bureau , called the
meeting to order , and the esteem In which
ho Is held by his co-workers was shown
partially In the hearty greeting accorded
him yesterday morning.
After felicitating the weather men upon
the work they are accomplishing , and the
Interest they arc showing In the Improve
ment and advancement of their profession.
Prof. Moore came to matters closer home ,
and talked briefly of management of offices
and qualifications of officials. In the course
of his remarks on this subject ho said :
We have n man at the head of the Agri
cultural department who demands endorse
ment by the weather officials of any measure
ho In called upon to recommend for the
bureau. Wo are fortunate In having nt
the head of the weather service a man who
holds the friendship of every officer In the
bureau and who Is personally Interested In
every one of his subordinates.
I would call particular attention at this
llrao to the Importance of maintaining dls
clpllno In your office. Do not permit any
assistant to como to you with complaints
of the work of others. 1o not allow your
wives to be drawn Into the -fight between
subordinates. It Is not necessary to be
harsh with vour men or to have stiff rules ,
but a dlsclollha can bo maintained which
will bring harmony In the work to be per
U Is necessary for those In the weather
service to bo students. Wo have outlined a
course of study at the central office which
It Is cxnccted the officials will pursue. The
local forecast official Hbould be well versed
In metaphysics and mathematics and br
capable of making his reports In good
English , that the standard of the bureau .be
kept at the highest point.
Trof. Cleveland Ahhe PrcHldcn.
I'rof. Cleveland Abbe , who has been con
nected with the weather bureau slnco 1
was established , being now a member o
the Mlentlflc staff of the chief , was called
to the chair. Ho was heartily cheered , bu
declined to make a speech , calling at one
for the first paper on the regular pro
"Relation Between the Weather Bureau
and the Public" was the subject of a dls
cusslon opened , by P. J. Walz of Baltimore
"Tho mental and social qualities of th
local official and his assistants , " ho said
"largely gauge the standard of the bureau
In the community. Under the present regu
latlons the weather official may bccomi
Identified with the community In which hi
lives , and he should strive to become an
honored member of society. The locar
office should bo centrally located that 1
may bo readily accessible to the public ,
The official should visit the public school
anil encourage the study of meteorology
that pupils will be able to read the weathe
maps for themselves. "
O. N. Salisbury of Seattle , Wash. , , fol
lowed on the same subject , and said : "Th
weather bureau service IB now looked upon
with moro confidence by the public than
ever before. To the uninitiated the slg
nal service was for a long time a mystery
but the public learned that signal officer
could bo like other men. While ridicule o
the service still exists , confidence has grow
rapidly. It grow when hundreds of ; shlpi
were saved at sea on the prediction of
coming storm , nnd when n killing fros
was successfully forecasted. Under the
liberal policy of the present administration
the bureau Is widening Its work and I
coming In closer touch with the public am
particularly ore the ngrlcutural classes be
Ing drawn nearer to the weather service
although there always will bo men who wll'
farm according Co their own Ideas and not
to those suggested by Jho government. "
Prof . Moore took up the reference to the
signal service and mentioned the repeal of a
law at the last congress which gave the
chief signal officer the right to step In nnd
take charge of the weather bureau under
certain conditions. This statement was
applauded , as was -the further statement that
General A. W. dreeloy , chief signal officer ,
endorsed the repeal.
By a rising vote the convention passed n
resolution congratulating General Greelcy
and his corps upon the excellent work during
the late war.
Wind on the InUcs.
Mr. Palmer of Chicago read a paper by II.
J. Cox of Chicago upon the value of the
weather service on the great lakes. "Navi
gators , " the paper alleged , "havo now
reached n period where they depend upon
the warnings Issued by the bureau. The
accuracy of these warnings are most essen
tial , especially as to direction of the wind.
A speed of thirty-flvo miles from Che north
after a few hours on Lake Superior will
make navigation Impossible , while a speed
of fifty miles from the south will cause no
interference. Send out no warnings un
less the conditions warrant the belief that
the coming wind storm will bo daugeous to
marine Interests. Wo are BO fitted
In Chicago that wo can get the ?
warnings to 100 points In the
city within a few moments. "
N. B. Concer ot Detroit asked "leave to
print" for bis paper , and only gave a synop
sis of U , bearing upon the Importance of
determining the direction from which the
wind comes , holding with Mr. Cox that n
high speed from ono direction which would
be destructive on the lakes would not cause
alarm If It came from another direction.
Mr. Conger also gave an Interesting sketch | |
ot the Important work ot the bureau along
tbo great lakes In furnishing ship masters
at all Important points along their journey
with the latest conditions ot the weather.
The value of warnings on tw ! Atlantic
and gulf coasts was discussed by John W ,
Smith of Boston , who salt ! the present serv
ice by the bureau on the coast was satis
factory to ship owners and they had no Im
provements to offer. They had , however ,
heartily commended the service , and ad
mitted U had saved an enormous amount of f
property and countless lives. He advocated
the substitution ot conei , drums , spheres ,
etc. , for flags for coast signals , as they were
more readily seen by the men at sea.
Prof. Moore at this time said the
local officials were encouraged to
telegraph the central office In
quiring ns to forecasts. This was to apply
especially when there were conditions ap
parent that the forecast would not conform
to the facts as to the weather.
Alex Q. McAdle of New Orleans thought
there were too many signals , Ha said the
red and black flags were good ones , but | t
the white was not. The hurricane signal j
was also a good one. Many other signals > ,
" lie felt , might be substituted by * the use ol f
the Information signal , which notified ship ,
owners that the office bad Information ol
value to them , and they should come and
, get It.
Other sUoal men alone the coast tool
part In the discussion , urging the Impor
tance of an accurate direction signal , which
will correctly and promptly Indicate any
coming change In the direction ot the wind ,
and glvo on Idea ot the probable velocity
of the coming wind. The adoption ot the
cone and drum signals In place ot flogs also
found moro advocates.
Immediately upon reassembling the con
vention voted to have a picture of all the
weather men In a group , from the front of
the court house building.
1C. A. Beats of Cleveland , 0. . dealt with
the relations of the Weather bureau with
the press. Ho said there was no calling
so exacting as that of the weather service
because ot the publicity given by the press.
"No prediction of fair weather , " he said ,
"could be knocked Into a cdcked hat by a
hard , shower without each drop of water
bringing a sting to the sensibilities of the
forecaster. " Ho said the weather office was
a fruitful Odd for news , but that the local
official too often failed to understand the
public value of the material ho possessed ,
nd thereby misses an opportunity to further
ic work of his office.
Prof. Abbe regretted that BO much Bcnsa-
lonallsm was allowed to find Its way into
lie press with so little truth for a founda-
Ion , bearing upon weather matters.
Prof. Moore said there was much In pro-
enttng weather news In a readable manner ,
nd added that the central office was now
rylng to prepare Its reports In a newsy
manner , avoiding as tar as possible all that
The following resolution was adopted by
rising vote , with applause , and tele-
_ raphed to St. Louis , where Secretary Wll-
011 went with President McKlnlcy :
The Weather bureau officials of the De-
lartment of Agriculture , ki convention as-
cmbled at Omaha. October 13. express
ncli ; official appreciation nnd personal affec
Ion for him whoso excctlvo ability nnd
nate kindness of heart have done so much
o extend the usefulness of the Weather
Bureau and to raise the standard of Its per
sonnel. Wo extend greeting to Hon. James
Vllson , secretary ot agriculture.
A. F. Sims of Albany , N. Y. , read a paper
advocating the teaching of meteorology In
he schools , and the discussion of It by bus
ness men at their luncheons and at the
clubs , all of which would tend to improve
he service of the bureau and bring It nearer
o the people.
Vnlac to Ilnlntii ( Jrowoi-n ,
W. II. Hammon of San Francisco Intro
duced a paper on "Possibilities of the
Weather Service on the Pacific Coast , " which
10 did not read but asked that It bo referred
.o a committee ot three for Investigation , as
the paper treats on long range prediction ,
and the speaker said If there was anything
u his theories It was of great importance
Mr. Hammon then , at the request of Prof.
Moore , told of the rain warnings In the
raisin Industry In California. He said they
sent these reports out from six to twcnty-
'our hours In advance ot the rain and only
once In five years has a shower como with
nut warning. He nald the raisin growers
have their plantations connected by wires
and that within an hour after the observer
Ratlsfles himself the rain Is comtcrj these
growers all have that Information , and so
reliable has It been In the past the growers
iavo come to rely upon It entirely , admitting
that It saves them $1.000.000 a year.
Prof. Moore scld'lt had been the dream
of the , meteorologist to bo able to success
fully make long range predictions , but ho
declared there was no ono at the present
tlmo who courd do EO , and these who pre
tended to do It were frauds and charlatans
If It over did como to bo a fact , ho said
It would bo through study and Investigation
along scientific lines by men engaged In the
weather service. He said Mr. Hammon hoc
given mud. attention to this work and he
olntcd as a committee to study.the paper

B. S. Paguo of Portland , Ore. , said tha
they have been making seasonal predictions
In the northwest and for five years had no
failed of verification. But the conditions
there were more favorable for such work
than clsowhero In the country. Ho die
not think general long distance forecasfins

ot that city from $100,000 to $500,000 a year
Coiicc-rnliiir Cold AVnvo.
On the matter of giving warnings o
northers F. II. Brandenburg of Denver Bah
It was difficult to give these warnings long
In advance , owing to changing conditions
If the observer waited until definite sign
appear , the cold wave travels so fast tha
rarely over twenty-four hours' nollco can
bo given of Its approach. He gave a fe\
conditions upon which an observer might
forecast a cold wave some time In advance.
B. J. Glass ot Helena , Mont. , Bald the
most dangerous cold wave In that st'ito was
that Immediately preceded by abnormally
warm weather , which usually was accom
panied by severe loss of sheep , but the
growers were so situated they could not
derive much benefit from rhe warnings.
J. Warren Smith of Columbus , O. , thought
transportation companies should bo In
formed In advance ot the condition of snow
upon the ground , whether It Is full of water
or composed largely of Ice and whether the
ground Is frozen , that they might be pre
pared to decide whether a light or heavy rain
would be required to produce a flood and
T. S. Outram
of Minneapolis read a paper
on this same subject' ; J. n. Sago ot DCS
Molnes and H. C. Tate of Nashville told of
what classes are moat benefited by the
forecasts ; Prof. H. A. Hazen of Washington ,
D. C. , nnd Patrick Connor of Kansas City
discussed long range forecasts ; F. p. Chafteo
of Montgomery , Ala. , and G. M. Chappel of
DCS Molnes read papers on the distribution
of the forecasts , and U. J. Hyatt of St. Louis
presented a paper on the river and Hood
The convention then took a recess to have
a group photograph taken of the delegates.
\VeatIirr Men nt Table.
The weather men partook of a banquet
at the Millard hotel , which was a very pleasant -
ant function. Previous to entering the ban
quet room Mrs. Willis L. Moore , wife ot
the chief of the Wcathsr bureau , held , an
Informal reception In the parlors , which all
The tables were ranged on three sides of
the dining room , ths special guests of the
evening and these assigned to toasts occu-
' I'ylng the ono acres the west end of the
room , facing the others In attendance. Prof ,
Willis L. Moore , chief of the Weather bu
reau , occupied a place at the center of this
table. At his right was Colonel J , H. Brig-
ham , assistant secretary of agriculture and
president of the government exposition commission -
mission , and at his left was Senator Thurs-
ton. Other guests , aside from the weather
officials , w re : B. Hoaewater , ex-Governor
Packard , formerly ot Ioulslana ; Congressman -
man D. H. Mercer , S. F. Woodbrldge , who
was a schoolmate and old-time acquaintance
of Prof. Moore , and E. W. Caldwell of the
Sioux City Times.
In the middle of thli principal table , rest- ;
lt' Ing upon a marble slab , were two Oregon j |
salmon , eerved whole , and embellished with
a skill betokening an artistic chef. The fish
weighed thirty-four and thirty-six pounds
renpectlvely , and were brought on for the
occasion by W , S. Pague of Portland. The
tables contained tokay and muicat grape i , ,
apples , peaches and plums , which were also '
brought from Oregon by Mr. Pague.
The dining room wsa decorated opproprl-
ately for the event , the- wall * being draped
with flags , all of which arc used as weather
and temperature signals by the bureau.
At 0 o'clock the doors of tbo dining room
were opened , and the gucstn filed In , and an
oven hundred took places at the table.
After duo justice had been done to the menu ,
at 11:05 : o'clock Prof. Moore called for or
der. In his Introductory remarks ho drew
a parallel between the conditions of today
and three centuries ago. He referred to the
exposition as a copy ot the World's Fair ,
and said oil nature had conspired to make
the enterprise a success. Ho referred , to the
late war , and said the American people were
now casting their eyes upon foreign Islands
without a view to widening out their benefi
cent civilization. Ho drifted to the depart
ments of this government , which led him
to the weather bureau and Its work , and
the value of the property gnved through the
warnings Issued by this bureau.
Colonel J. II. Blnghnm , assistant secretary
of agriculture , was Introduced and salil this
department was created as the result ot a
long-continued fight made by the farm or
ganizations of the country. H was Intended
.s n means Indirectly ot securing a practical
ducntlon for the boy who desired to fit hlm-
clt for n successful agriculturist. It was
Iso deemed Important that this Important
ndustry should have a place In the cabinet
ounclls ot the nations. The Importance of
.his Industry was shown by the fact that the
aluo of the cropn of this country for one
car multiplied by twelve would pay off the
lational debt of every nation In the world ,
lo said the weather bureau was an 1m-
jortantj part of the Agricultural department

Thiirnton Talk * .
Senator Thurston spoke on "Nebraska
Weather , " and said ho come to the banquet
distressed with an awful drouth , but by the
graclousness of the weather man ho had
absorbed BO much moisture that he did not
know what prediction to make for tomorrow ,
Nebraska , hd said , was placed In an unfor-
unato position on the map , for It was
bounded on three sides by dry states. The
state has been afflicted at times with hot
wlndw which usually come under political
ondlllons. Give the state good weather and
t will furnish everything ) else. It will pro
duce enough corn to supply the world , nnd
have enough surplus left to make whisky
'or all our people. Wo have had bad years ,
but that was before the weather men had
become accustomed to their places. It was
d weather when William McKlnlcy be
came president of the United States ; It
was good wmthcr when De\ty sailed Into
ho harbor nt Manila ; It was good weather
when Schley and Sampson pursued Cervera
along' the Cuban coast nnd sent his fleet
ivlth greetings to the Maine ; It was good
weather when the American soldier , regu
lar and volunteer , white and black , charged
the hill at San Juan ; and there Is good
weather wherever the stars and stripes flut
ter in the breeze.
The senator closed with a brilliant pero
ration and the banqueters arose to their
feet nnd waved their handkerchiefs , closing
with three cheers for the speaker.
"Tho Press and the Weather Bureau" was
the toast assigned to E. Uosewater , and ho
said he 'was the first weather observer west
of the Missouri. In 18C3 he was requested
'by ' Prof. Henry of the Smithsonian Institute
to make reports on the weather conditions
n the territory between Omaha and Salt
Lake City. Being manager of the Atlantic
and Pacific Telegraph company the task was
not so great as It might seem. Weather
observers now days are more sensitive than
their barometers. When the press says any
thing their temperature rises until some
times they become Intemperate. The press
tries to be fair and glvo weather bureau
notices a place at the top of column next
to reading matter , and will do so as long
as the weather officials continue to draw
thor | salary , The charge Is sometimes made
that Jho press Is like the wcathomlbureau
n that it misrepresents matters. This Is
not true , because you never saw a lying
newspaper ; but the work of the two is so
similar that both have frequently been
classed asfakirs. - . However , when the
weather men make their next observation
they will find that the press Is their friend.
John U. Sage of Des Molnes then talked
of "The Weather Bureau and the Press. "
He said ho had been Impressed today by the
beauty of the day , but ho fcareed tonight
that the people living In the Millard , and
trying to sleep , would think It peculiar ,
with the weather men In the city , that
the beautiful day should be followed by
such a squall. The press Is only mentioned
once In ocrlpture. That was when the Di
vine healer was among the people , and the
lepers , the lame and the halt , sought to
get to Him to touch the hem of Ills gar
ment , but could not because of the press.
Ho had been engaged In the work of the
press In the years past , but had since re
formed and was trying to lead a better
life. It requires education , knowledge and
reading to be n good editor , and after serv
ing In the field for years some of them
take a step higher and enter the weather
service , while others step downward and
go to congress. Seriously , bo said , the only
marvel' Is that the people have done so
long without the service of the weather
bureau as It Is developed today.
"American Citizenship" was1 assigned to
Congressman I ) . II. Mercer , , and ho said It
was embarrassing to have a toast of such
India rubber characteristics. This subject
had been exploited diirlng the past ninety
days In two directions and no ono could tell
where the ends wculd meet. Ho predicted
that It the supply of McKInleys , Doweys ,
Sampsons and Schfeys would hold out Amer
ican citizenship would discover the north
pole and melt the south pole. Ho compli
mented the weather officials on having given
Omaha moro kinds of weather on President's
day than ho had ever seen before , but prom
ised to do good work. Whenever they wanted
an appropriation' they could call on him.
Prof. Cleveland Abbo of Washington re
sponded to "Science , Pure and Applied , " and
after him'others spoke. The clock Indicated
the hour of 2 before the banquet was called
to a close.

J. D. Lawrence , a showman , made an un
successful attempt lastvnlght to commit sui
cide In his room at the State hotel , 1312.

i from Now York and moro lately frora Chicago -
cage and has been leading n more or less
precarious existence In the city for the last
four months. For a week he has been drinkIng -
Ing heavily and upon the exhaustion of his
funds became partially sober and entirely
despondent. Ho had an empty revolver In
his room and from some unknown sourca
borrowed a single cartridge which ho placed
In the chamber. Lawrence went to his room
about C o'clock and a tow minutes later the
guests of the house were alarmed by the
report of a revolver. The clerk made an In-
vcstlgatlon and found Lawrence lying on the
bed with his face covered with blood and
the empty revolver beside him.
| The police station was notified and a sur-
gccn was at once In attendance. It was
found that Lawrence -endeavored to press
the nozzle against his temple , but either
from accident or lack of nerve bad directed
the weapon obliquely and the bullet had
struck a glancing blow. The ball entered
near the right ear and emerged above the
eye without having done serious damage.
After dressings had been applied Lawrence
was removed to St. Joseph's hospital.
Lawrence would give no explanation for

DEAD BODY FOUND IN MANGER
Unknown Mnn Crntvlx Into the Plncc
mill Dion Sonic Time Uur-
Injr the Dny.
Doubled up In a manger In a stable In the
rear of 1108 Farnam street the body of an
unknown man was found yesterday. The
man. was dead , but Just how long It had
been alnco he expired Is not known. He
was not there yesterday morning when the
driver for J. IlaUliberg , who owns the stable ,
took out his team. Later In the morning
some boys discovered the man there and
reported the fact to a policeman , who sup
posed from appearances the man was simply
drunk. Later It was found the man had
died , and the coroner was summoned and
the body taken to the morgue.
There were no marks of violence on the
body or anything to indlcato the cause of
death. The dead man' was apparently a
laborer about 45 years of ago , and the only
thing which affords a clew to his Identity la
a small book In his pocket on which was
written the name , 0. Hawn.
The remains were identified last evening
by George Hoffman , a livery man who con
ducts a stable at Eighteenth and St ,
Mary's avenue , as those of Curtis Hawn , a
hostler who had been In his employ for' '
three weeks prior to last Friday , when ho
was discharged for drunkenness. Nothing
Is known of Hawn'a antecedents. An In

the daring holdup of the druggist , was given
his preliminary hearing yesterday afternoon.
It resulted In his discharge on the charge
of robbery and his being held to the dis
trict court In bond ? of $2,000 on the charge
of shooting with Intent to kill.
Wnrdlow's discharge on the robbery charge
was duo to a faulty complaint. Druggist
Graham on the witness stand testified that
the money stolen waa taken from the cash
register and not from his person. On this
testimony Attorney Drltt for Wardlow asked
for his client's discharge on the grounds that !
ho had not committed robbery Inasmuch > as' ' I
hp took nothing of value from Graham's
person. County Attorney Herring admitted
the complaint bad been wrongly drawn and
i Judge Gordon discharged Wardlow. I
' Resides Druggist Graham five other wlt- |
' nesses were examined. They were Officers
M. J. Sullivan and J. Barnes , who cap- ,
