showed the value of alertness on the part ot
observers in the region extending from tha
north shores of South America to latitude
32 north , In the United States , In antlclpat- j

canes have their birth an-3 It Is of the utmost - !

It was a singular thing that this year nu
hurricanes passed through that region until
several weeks after their usual time. Provi

the right : Providence seemed to have been
on the side of the men who fought against
the oppressors of humanity. Our fleet was
able to leave those waters without encoun

Soon after came a most destructive storm ;

A point I want to call attention to In con
nection with the warnings Issued In advance
of that great storm Is this ; The morning
survey of that region showed a "cry slight
shadlng-oTf of pressure toward the Wind
ward Ulands. Hut the barometric gradient
was very slight , not enough to Indicate a
hurricane , but enough to put the forecaster
n llttlo on the alert to look for
something later. Now the. observer at
Hnrbadocs , four hours nnd forty minutes
after the regular observation had been '
made , detected the barograph making n llt
tlo drop. His trained eye detected It nnd '
ho Instantly took a special observation and
sent It to the forecast center. Now his ob
servation dl not convcv so much to him ,
It mlgl't ' have been duo to a local dis
turbance , but to the forecast official who
had before him the chart made nearly four
hours before , this sudden dropping of pres
sure at that point , which was the very
center toward which the lines of pressure
showed a shading off , Indicated the de\cl-
opment within a few hours or n few days
of a destructive hurricane. It was the
alertness of that observer ( and for that
alertness he received promotion ) that en
abled him to place those hurricane signals ;
nnd If ho had waited until the storm had
passed bo could not have placed them to
better advantage to warn mariners. Every
nation having \eP6elB In those waters , no
matter what , received benefit from those
warnings. There were certain countries
that were a little backward In giving us
the facilities needed for the service , but to
day would all like to get It.
J. C. Tlercy of North 'I'lattc , Neb. , and C.

observations. The latter thought smaller

Bright and fresh after the banquet of the
evening previous and with their faces evi
dencing nothing of meteorological disturb- ,
nnce , the weather observers resumed their i
dlscusslona In the Commercial club rooms !
promptly on the hour yesterday morning.
Prof. Cleveland Abbe of Washington , who
presided , suggested that as this was the
wind-up of the convention , the business
might bo expedited. The discussion of the
Townscnd rain gauge nnd the mailing stamp
was dispensed with , theeo matters being left
to a committee.
Apparatus for printing wenthor maps by
means of a special typewriter was discussed
by A. 1 \ Slum of Albany , N. Y.
A resolution of thanks to the Omaha Com
mercial club for Its courtesy was adopted.

I summed up the discussion as generally

thu newspaper was a good criterion to go |

Tbe relation of tbe Weather bureau to the

DISPUTE DECIDED BY LOT

( > U the Job.
Luck , pure and simple the flop of a silver
coin yesterday gave the contract for the
jiavlng of Maeon street from Thirty-first to
Thirty-third street to the Grant raving com
pany and demonstrated that of the duo , John
Grant and Hugh Murphy , the former Is the
favorite of Mistress Fickle Fortune.
The Board of Public Works some time ago
received bids for the paving of the street
and when they were opened It was found
that Murphy and Grant had submitted the
lowest and exactly the same flgurcu upon
every portion of the work. It was a cordian
knot that the board did not feel able to solve
and the settlement of the matter was. left
to the two contractors. For several days
the pair of paving caputs wrestled with the
problem together , but with no results and i
finally they agreed that Dame Fortune
should settle the matter through the medium
of a coin , which was to bo flopped by Secretary -
rotary Coburn of the board.
In consequence of this plan , the contractors
yesterday visited the otllco of the board and
explained the situation to Secretary Coburn ,
who agreed readily enough to act as the dl-
