SPARE IT, MR, MAYOR,
Central Park Observatory Is Dear to
tho Hearts of Gjlliamltes.
Sorvicos of Prof. Draper's Bu
roau to tho City.
IU'iisons Urged Against tho Aboli
tion uf tho Meteorological
Mayor Giant's efforts to f ecure economy
in the cily goernnicnt, which devolopod
at Iho last meeting of I bu lioanl of Esti-
; mulo nnd Apporlioiilnent iu a very
tuiphntlo anil pronounced kick against
maintaining any ltngor tho Central Park
Meteorological Bureau, has tbiown thn"
ancient specimen of nrclueology into a
stnto of unwonted aclivity and oxcito.
It eosls the cily nboiit $6,000 a year to
keep ttji tho Meteorological Bureau,
which is situated in the upper regions of
tho Arsenal at Central Park. It has been
presided over for twentv-ouo years past
by Prof. Dnuiol Draper, Ph. 1).. who
prides himself on hl relationship to the
famous family of sciculists of thn samo
Prof. Draper is a mild. mannered,
plcnuut-Rpokeu gentleman of perhaps
fcrty-elfjlit Summers. Ho wears gold
illumed eyeglasses and airy.ilroopiug side
whiskers tinged with gray, and i" always
icady to reccivo occasional visitornwho
wnuder up into bis aerial sanctum, and
explain tho mystcrios of Ills wonderful
contrivances which measure and record
tho motcoroiogicnl changes for ocry
second of eycry day in tho yenr.
Iu n word. Prof. Diaper has grown gray
in tho servicc.aud thcio arc many grown
un nnd married people living in New
York who remember being takon up to
his observatory when Ibey were children
and listening to the fame voluminous mid
daintily worded explanations of the coin,
plicated machinery of tho weather that
thoir children would now hear if they
ever happened to drift into tbo Pro
fessor's liii'liw ick.
In tho'tu days the Moteorologicol Bureau
wns a popular aud f.isbiuuahlo resort, and
every ono who enmo to see tho menagerie
visited it as a matter of course.
Of lalo years the Profu.sor has been
allowed to prosecute his studies in mete-
loiologieal science without thoso inter
moth us which (oustautly disturhad him
in former yeiuv.nnil hois now on Ihu very
vergoot perfecting a goriu-ciiloher nu.l
iiilcrobo-dotector, which may entiroly
chnugo tho methods of sconce.
Suddenly, nnd without warning, Mayor
Grant fixed bis eiiglo eve on this innocent
and e.ity.going Utile department, way tip
in tho uttiu of tho Arsenal, and putting
his loot down very hard savs ho will wipe
itout of existence.
Nutnrally tho Professor is agitated by
this bombshell, and ho and his two a sist
ants were fluttering about in thoir little
eyrie this morning when an Evemno
Would reporter called, for all the world
like tho pigeons in their cots iu tho yaul
below, when tho bold bud bov throws a
stick into tho cage just to stir them up.
"1 don't understand it ull." said tho
.Professor, "nudlnm sure Mayor Grant
has novcr visited tho observatory or be
would unver waut to. abolish it so ruth
lessly. Why, it's older than tho Signal
Sen ice, and where they tnko observations
only two or threo tiinos a day, we hove
ban them here continuously for twenty
The ProfoSRor took tho roportor around
tho observatory where the instruments of
his own invention were nt work. One
registered the direction of tho wind, un
olher its lone aud velocity; a third
showed tho tempcraturo in the simile, and
next to it was a machine for measuring
the intensity of tho nun's ravs.
The ruin gauge showed just when uverv
sloiui began and eudul, how muih mill
or show foil aud the into at wirch it enmo
down, 'ihe biirometiicalciiiiditious wero
nlsn legistered with equal exactness, aud
ail tho instruments worked auloiiiaticull.v
by means of clockwork.
Eveiv mouth Prof. Drnper gets out his
it'l ott, aud onco a yc.ir he publishes u
printed voiurao containing thn statistics
lor every day during that period. This
is part of tho exponso of tho doparimcut.
AlUho instruments' nro 'patented, and
uro in use m ouiy on- or two of the gnat
obton stories ot tho country, ono of these
being the Lick Ohsena'ory, in California.
Tho value of these reports, the Profes
sor says. Is shown by tho Uso which tho
city lias made of them in severnl impor
tant lawsuits, In ono suit nlouo $30,000
(lepeudod oil tho question of the statu of
the weather at a certain time. The only
l wnv this could be determined was by
l coiisnlt.ugtho rrprrts ot thoCeu'ral Park
i Obsenntory, and the cily was enabled to
i win ho suit in oouscqueuco.
j Iu other nistauces they have boen found
of incalculable value, uud are lueful and
inlorestiug at all tunes, according to Prof.
Draper, who says that all tho Park Coin-
' lnissiouersnro witli him in favoring the
continuance of the City Oborvntory.
When ho wni fir-t appointed to the
position, iu lKlir), by Waldo Hutchiiis.who
wns then Commissioner, Prof. Draper re-
I ceived a silary of H.000 year.
About sovou years ago tbo Park Com-
i luissioucrs themselves talked about abol-
' ishiug tho bureau becuusu thn uniiioprin
tiou wni short that vear. Thoy didn't do
it. however, because the Professor oou-
I seuted to continue his services at n saiarv
i of :J2,500 a year, with thu understanding
that this was to be only a temporary nr-

i TLe Park Commissioners aro reported
to bo making strenuous oflorts to induce
! Mayor Grant to chnnpo his mind nbout
annihilating the observatory up in the
top of the Arsenal.
When asked ns to Ills objection to tbo
1 nppropnuth n of mouty by the city for
thu Meteorological Bureau, Mayor Grant
' Tho Board of Estinuito at ono timo
considered thn prnprioly of abolishing
tbo Bureau altogether, and of dopondiug
upon thu uictoorolocical statistics of tho
Mfiii'vnl Government, which were, in my
opinion, ample. I desired meiely to
i open the question of Iho policy of con
tinuing this homewhat expensive Buieau,
"If it is the prrpor thing to continue
it, all right. I hnvo no personal feeling
in tho matter, and certainly polio, as

whoso hlch slniiillnu in the scientific
world is gencially acknowledged."

Why. tho very thought of thoso hun

Mr. Palmer wus to have charge of tho
