Anticipating the next question , which was that ot aerial observations , Prof , Mooio 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 Ing hurricanes. In this region these hurrl- i canes have their birth an-3 It Is of the utmost - ! most Importance to commerce and niarino , Interests that their approach can bo pro- | dieted. Ho said : i The West India region , taking In an nrea as large as the United States , Is today | brought twice dally under an atmospheric service that will cnabo ! in in iho future , ns It has In two cas-M rcce-illv , to doten the | development of the most destructive storms ' that visit our continent : to measure them I In the inception , to keep puce with them as they come across the Wind\\nrd Islands and up the Caribbean sea to the Oulf of Mexico , and to do what has been the dream of the meteorologists of England nnd some of Its countries for n great many years tj wain the commerce of all nations in that great region against these dcstfu > ; . ; ve clemeiitb. It was a singular thing that this year nu hurricanes passed through that region until several weeks after their usual time. Provi dence poeuied to have been on the side of 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 tering a storm that even Incommoded It. Soon after came a most destructive storm ; one In which it seemed that all the force , ot all the storms that should have developed In I the preceding vceks was gathered and cen tered.

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. Aerial Olmi-rviitlonx. J. C. Tlercy of North 'I'lattc , Neb. , and C. n. Wurtz. of 1'lerre , S. D. , gave their aerial observations. The latter thought smaller Utea would be required for certain purposes.

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. Prof K'A. A. Hnzeu of Washington offered a resolution for annual meteorological conven tions to bo held subject to the call ot the chief ot the weather bureau. AfUr some re- inarkn on ft , mostly In Us favor , action was deferred. The question , " -hould Not Certain Impor tant Weather llureau Starions , the Duties of Which CON or a Wide Range of Work , be Designated Stations ot Instruction for Newly Appointed Observers ? " was then taken up. On this J. Warren Smith of Columbus , O. , r. K. n. Wnppenhaus of Indianapolis , Major H. C. IJat'o of Knoxville , Tenn. , nnd A. J. Mitchell ot Jacksonville , Fla. , each gave his views , being nil In the affirmative with the exception that It was manifest that observ ers at the moro imporrUnt stations are averse to having them turned Into kindergartens for embryo forecasters. Climate anil Crop Scrvlc-e. A very important subject followed in the discussion of the climate nnd crop service Ha weekly bulletins. It was presented In the question : "Should Remarks of Corre spondents He Published as Supplementary to General Discussion ? " Also , "Should Weekly Reports of Temperature Ho Tele graphed to Section Centers from Selected Voluntary Stations ? " This subject was dls- , cussed by A. U. Hackett of Columbus , Mo. ; [ J. H.

Chairman Abbe I summed up the discussion as generally j agreeing to n wider use of the telegraph and moro details In the publication of the 1 crop reports. Messrs. Cllno and Sago said thu newspaper was a good criterion to go | by. What the newspaper considered Im portant enough to publish should bo re ported by the correspondents. Tbe relation of tbe Weather bureau to the Department ot Agriculture was handled In a brief paper by K. 11. Calvcrt of Washington , D. C. The three essentials of a nation's prosperity , climate , agriculture and mineral products , combined to form the basis of any nation's prosperity.

Sec M'lilrh ( > 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- rcrto. general of the gambling bout A coin Klen's Winter \\'u have- Just innde a purchase from uno of the most celebrated mills in New York of all the odd cases that they had on hand we bought them so cheap that wo can give you tomorrow the most extraordinary bar gains ever heard of In line underwear.
