nlth his promise, District Attorney UeortroB.
tjirabsui lirotmlit clearly before tho publlo to-
it evidence to dhow that bribery was commit
ted in 11)0 Chambers of City Council by aconts
tf the Sihuylkllt Valley Water Company. Bo
t to the proceedings, which are In the form of
an ex parte hearing1 before the Judges of Uia
rrlnilnal Court, tiro terminated, It, Is Bald the
lrlo3urcs trill bo more sensational than they
were to-day, for a mombor of Counolls from
one of tho upper wards of tho olty Trill go upon
the stand voluntarily and directly Implicate
men upon whom more than a shadow of sus-pi-
Ion now falls.
' The procoodlnps to-day woro before Judges
llrogT and liordon In nu open courtroom
thronged with listeners. At noon l'ctcr E. Smith
was arraigned on the iliargcs of brlbory, at
tempted bribery, and solicitation. In offering
ComtnonCouncllmnn Walter N. Sterenson a con
sideration ot fti.OOO for bis voto in favor of the
Schuylkill Valley water ordinance. There
was a brief hearing of the evidence, which was
unshaken by tho rross-cxntnlnutlon of Smith's
attorney, and tho Judges, at the request of
District Attorney Grulium to bind the defend
ant over lor trial at tho prcsont term of court,
readmitted him to $10,000 ball. Mr. Graham
announced that ho would call the case up for
trial on Tucsdsy morning noxt.
Then came an unusual proceeding In the
form of an Investigation by Uie Judges. Prior
to Smith's hearing the District Attorney
called tho names ot about a dozen members of
Counolls, all but trto of whom responded.
H Seven, four of vthoni voted for tho Schuylkill
t Valley Water bill and throe opposod It, were
placed on tho stand In succession. The first
jo man, A. Raymond Itaff, became confused, al
ii most hopelessly bo, under the rapid firo of in
H terrogatlonB from the Judges and the exomlna
Ij tlon of Mr. Urahaui, but he managed to adhere
B to a stubborn denial of any direct or Indirect
B knowledge of bribery. At ono point It seemed
B M though he would breakdown, but ho cot
H The second mnn. Louis J. Walker, a photog-
n rapber and member of Soloct Council, came to
I the stand with an air of confidence, llo dented
I that he had bten bribed. lie denied that he
! hd hoard of any one else being bribed, lie
Then followed a soene. Mr. Oroham left bis
chair and, walking slowly up to the witness
stand, keeping his gaze fastened upon the occu
j pant ot it, suid:
I "Walker, are you telling the truthl"
IB The man protested that he was.
"How much were you promised to vote for
this bill!" persisted the District Attorney.
Tell me the truth. It will be better for you If
Mr. Graham never once raised his tones above
the pitch of ordinary conversation, lie put his
band on the rati of tho witness box and kept
looking intently at the witness. Walker
turned daIo. The District Attorney stood like a
, statue. The Judges loaned forward to oatoh
K the sounds from Walker's lips, which had faded
IS Into whispers. The man lu the end completely
K collapsed, and facing the Judges be made a
N clean breast of everything, the District Attor
fi ncy's queries bringing out every detail of the
m Itcy- He said that Helrct Councilman J.
w Emory Dyram came to his house and promised
E to pay him S.1,000 if he voted for the passage ot
1 tho Schuylkill Valley Water bill. With reluc
6, tance bo admitted tnat sums of money ranglnir
B from $10,000 to $1:5,000 had been paid for favor
$ able action on tho water ordinance In commlt
w tee. Of this sum he received MOO, ho sold. It
js was given him by Select Councilman Charles F.
t Beirer. in Bcger's office. Common Councilman
I Edwin B. Smith was with him, he said, and
also received 500 from Soger. Seser was ono
ot,tho men who, to every appooronce, acted as
Kelson U. Green's agents on the floor ot Coun
cils. The witness, af te iclllne his story, wo token
I vnder the core of the Judges, and later made
affidavits based on his testimony, upon which
1 warrants of nrreat will be issued.
Common Councilman Smith was called to the
j stand and donied point blank the testimony of
i Walker. The District Attorney merely gave
htm the opportunity to make the denial for the
J present under oath. Thero Is other corrobora
' live testimony in the case of Smith.
1 Henry Clay, a member of Select Council, said
be was present when Nelson G. Green, who had
charge of the legislation, said In his presence
that it cost him ir-5,000 cash to get a favorable
(report on the Schuylkill Valley water bill In
Common Councilman John Dougherty, who
signed a favorable report on the bill In sub
committee, could not tell anything about the
jrator bill, could not remember who his col
leagues were on tho sub-cammlttec, could not
ren remember the Chairman of the sub-committee.
He did not remember what the report
contained or who else signed It, only that he
signed It without being asked or Induced to do
so by any ono. lie could not give the slightest
reason why no voted for the bill. Ho only
know that no one paid him or promised to pay
him. and to that ho stuck.
lha statement of tho Chairman of the sub
committee, whom Dougherty had forgotten,
v.a.1 equally Interesting. Tho Chairman was
Arthur It. II. Morrow, ne denied that Nelson
o Urten drow up tho report, or that bo drew lr.
up at Green's dictation in Green's office. Ho
swore that ho drew It up at his own home, and
that it was si gned by tho otbor members of the
sub committee Just us ho presented It to them.
There was no discussion. Tho report was
merely read and the others Just signed it.
After a consultation with tho Judges the Dis
trict Attorney allow od Morrow to leave the

Honolulu, March 10, via Ban Francisco,
March 23. On tho summit ot Mauna Loa, the
crater ot Mokuaweowoo shows, for the first
timo in fourteen years, signs ot activity. Hun
dreds ot coffee and sugar planters around the
base of the mountain have become greatly
alarmtd over the prospect ot an eruption that
will be attended by a flood ot red-hot lava, de
stroying everything In Its path.
For several months the crater of Kilauea,
which Is at an altitude ot 4,000 feet, east ot
Mauna Loa, has been aotlve, but it Is only
within a week that the summit of the moun
tain, which is 13,000 feet high, has begun to
smoke. Old natives eay Mauna Loa never
mokes without lava flowing. In thetgreat
eruption of 1680 the lava stream came down
within two miles of Ullo.
Drs. Guppy and Frledlander, two German
sclentlflo men, recently modo studies ot Mauna
Loa's crater. They say that KUauea's activity
has ceased altogether during tbe last. fort
night, and only a bluish vapor Is rising. In
the mtantlme steam Is pouring from the sum
mit crator ot Mauna Loa.
All previous flows of lava from Mauna Loa have
burst through tne sides of the mountain at an
elevation of from 10,000 to 12,000 feoU With
out warning tho stream of lava breaks through
the rent In tho mountain side, and flows down
Into tho fertile valleys, carrying death and de
struction with It.
There are no records of any other volcano
that has equalled Mauna Loa in tbe volume of
lava discharged In the principal eruptions. In
tho eruption of 1855 tho lava flood reached
the outskirts of llllo, covering 200 square
miles, with an average denth of 100 feet. Tho
volumo of tho flow would nearly have built
Vesuvius. In 1858 the Inva stream flowed
west to the sea.and half filled the Day ot Kiholo,
The eruption ot 1880-81 poured forth a river
of lava for nine months, whloh ran fifty miles,
with a varying width of three miles to a few
hundred yards. It paused finally on the out'
skirts of Ullo, when all tho citizens thought
their town was doomed. Tho volcano was also
very octlvo in 1888 and 180'J. When quiescent
Mauna Loa Is a favorlto resort for tourists.

Lubell wont to his office on tbe third floor of
tho building Tuesday evening and remained
until 0:30 o'clock. Then he went Into the hall
and rang for the elevator. When It finally ap
peared a stranger was In charge.
"Who nre you I" asked Lubell. "What are
you doing In there, anyway 1"
"Don't you sco I'm runnln' the elevator I
What did you suppose I was doln', rldln' a

" I don't know where be is. He told me to run

" Oh, that's oneof me tools," said the stranger.
"The elevator is out of order, an I'm tryln' to
Not satisfied with the man's explanation, and
noticing that his hand was badly cut, Lubell de
cided to have him arrested and undertook to
catch him. The other, suspecting this, startod
the elevator down.
Then there was a race for the ground floor,
with tbe odds against Lubell. Taking u Hying
start, the latter rushed down stairs throe steps
at a time, yelling nt tho top of bis voice: "Tom,
Tom, stop thlof. Help! Fire! Polled"
At tbe second floor tbo race was about an
oven thing, and McDonald would have got away
had not Lubell cleared the last eight steps on a
Jump. Seeing his passage to the street cut oft,
the man In tbe elevator started the car up
again. Lubell, Instead of summoning assist
ance, followed In hot pursuit. When the two
had reached the fifth floor, McDonald started
down again, and, bis pursuer being exhausted,
won out easily. Just as be shot through the
door to the street a crowd, collected lu response
to Lubell's continuous calls for. help, started
after the prisoner, who bad Jumped on u cable car.
Policeman Welch arrived upon the scene Just
thon, and placing the fngltlvo under arrest,
brought him back to the building, wbero bo was
identified by Lubell. TbomaB Dillon, tbe ele
vator man, was also arrested, and tbe two were
taken to tbe Mercer stroct station.
As ono ot the windows on tbe ground floor
was smashed, the nrlsonor was held In $1,000

Brooklyn publlo school ttaehers are muoh In
terested In a unique bicycle tour whloh Mrs.
Emma F. Pettenglll has projected for tho com
ing summer vacation, Mrs. Pettenglll is one
of tho flro women members of tho Board ot
Education appointed by Mayor Wurster in
1805 and is an enthusiasts bicyclist. Among
Brooklyn's 2,000 school teachers are many
scorchers and centurions, and it occurred to
Mrs. Pettenglll that a wheeling tour through
England and Franco would prove to these a
wolcome physical and mental vacation tonic
As the party Is to be limited to fifteen, compe
tition to be among the ohoscn few Is keen, and
many are the noontime talks on 'tbo subject.
For what qualities will the members bo ohoaen
should tho applicants be largely In oxcess ot
that number t Will success In teaching marks
manship to the young Idea oount or will cen
tury records be held of more value! How many
of tbe fifteen will be of the sterner sexf How
many unappropriated! Those are tho questions
that are agltatli.g tho fair srhoolma'ams. Tho
party will start Saturday, July 2, on tho Win!
freda of tho Wllson-Furners lino and will be ab
sent sixty-three days. Southern England wilt
be visited first and Its roads compared witn the
good roads of Long Island. Twenty-eight miles
Is to bo the limit of a day's run, loavlng plenty
ot timo for sightseeing and for test
On Tuosday, Aug. 0, the party will start for
Paris, After ten days in Paris, whoro thoy will
have an opportunity lo vlow tbe sartorial ec
centricities of tho Parisian bloycllonne, the
party will wheel through northern Trance
They will visit the cathedral at ltouen and Joan
of Arc's house. Returning to London, tho
party will sail on Aug. 25 and roach homo In
time to resume their pedagosical labors in Sep
tember. A noticeable feature of the prospectus Is that
the Sundays of the English part or tho tour are
set apart as "days of rest" nt Kly and nt Oxford,
Vfhllo thoie occurring durlui; tho trip through
France are, presumably In deference to Conti
nental customs, put down with tho weok days
as dates tor rides and sightseeing.
"The party will bo chaperoned ty mo over
Its entire route," Mrs. Pettenglll announces In
her circular to the teachers, "and I will bo
assisted by a gentleman conductor, not a com
monplace courier, perfectly acquainted with his
duties and routes.
"This will bo my first wheeling tour In Eng
land." said Mrs. Pettenglll yesterday, "al
though I have visited that country and the
Contlnont, My wheeling has boon confined to
my own country, and for the last two sum
mers I have made long tours through New
Mamihlro and other New England States.
I anticipate n very enjoyablo tour with tho
teachers. We havo baa a good! many laupllca
tions so far, and will soon havo tho desired
number of members. When I was In England
tho July and August weather struck me as ideal
for wheeling, and tbo roads there aro certainly
among tbe tino.it I have ever soon. The daily
wheeling runs will bo so short that those wbo
aro not strong enough for prolonged riding
will have amplo time and strength for sight
seoing. The wheeling routes aro so nearly in
lino with tho railroads that if persons for any
reason prefer to tako tbo train on any doy they
can do so. and meet tho party at tho objective
point for tbe day.
"This party has boon planned solely for ro
creation, and without an Idea of profit what
ever." concluded Mrs. Pettenglll. "All charges
havo been made on the co-operative plan.and tbe
oast for tbo sixty-three days'Hour is only f!300."
Mrs. Pettenglll, besides being School Com
missioner, is a member ot several Brooklyn wo
men's clubs, and Is very proralnontly identi
fied with tho King's Daughters. In common
with her four sister members of tbo Board of
Education, Mrs. Pettenglll Is montlonod as a
eandldato for reappointment to that body In
July, when their terms will expire. If bicy
cling schoolma'ams have any influence with
Mayor Van Wyok, sho at least will be retalnod.
Central Superintendent William H. Max
well Is said to regard his wheel as second only
to his educational duties, and it is rumored
among the teachers that be may Join the party.

the Doctor resigned, and of tho petition gotten
up at tho same time with the autographs of the
000 members who signed It, Dr. Hall, wbo was
moderator of the church meeting, looked a bit
appalled. TUen bo said:
"I fear tho house tbat the chnrch provides for
me was not mado to accommodato such a con
gregation as this, and I suggest that whatever
coremony thero is to be should bo In tho church
here. I haven't any long speech to make, I
am sure, and whatever Is to be done can be done
This didn't daunt the congregation. At'lio
conclusion of tho benediction he whole 200

signed. Ho also presented a big bunch of pinks
to Mrs. Hall, both Itoblnton hen presented
tho book of petition nnd idgnaturcs. It
was bound in red moroecc. Mr. Robin

said tbat the petition represented the rual senti

to a statement mado by Dr. Hall to tbo effect
that he would gladl accept any assistant tbat
tho church might think he needed, and begged
tbat the Doctor would accept tbo congregation

Dr. Hall replied briefly, thanking the congre

EXTENSIVE TENSION XEAVDS.
ne Ceveranseat fatd'to nave Bea Itabasd ef
100,000 In llBdo Islaatf.
PnoviDRMo, n. I., March S3. What Is
thought to be the biggest fraud in recent yean
has Jul t been discovered in this city. The
irregularities cover a period ot about eleven
yean and it Is believed that tho Oovernmont
has been swindled out of about 9100,000. Three
persona have been arrested and fourteen other
warrants are in the hands ot the United States
Marshal for sorvlce.
The first arrest was that of William A. Mun
ton, a pension claim agent, which took place
on June 11 ot last year. The caso has boon
under investigation ever since, Munson being
too sick to be broutht to trial. Yesterday two
others wero arrested, J. Garrett, a clerk in tbe
store in which Munson had his office, and Cor
nelius Draper. They are oharged with having
made false affidavits in connection with Mun
son's pension cases.
Munson was a notary public. The warrant
aralnst him was on ten counts. Five of them
charged that on five different occasions he made
a false certificate on a pension claim against
the Government, and the other flvo charged
him with uttering and transmitting forged
pension checks, lie pleaded not guilty and was
held in 90,000 ball. It was charged tbat the
alleged false certificate was made for tbe pur
pose of aiding a man falsely purporting to be
Leonard J. X. Mooy. Tbe latter In his life
time tras a pensioner of the United States at
the rate of $12 a month dating from May 0,
1801. Mooy Is said to havo died on Sent, 30,
1805, but once in three months for fifteen
months, up to the timo of Munson's arrert, bis
pension was drawn regularly.
Tbe suspicions of the Pension Department at
Washington were aroused by t e developments
In the capo of Munson and the Investigation
was continued long after it was supposed to
have been closed. L. F. Hanecom, a special
agent ot the Pension Bureau, came here from
Boston last month and bns been working here
ever since. Agent Hansom has been nsslstod
by Special Agent Albert W. Roomo ot Wash
ington. The seventeen warrants sworn out by
Agent Roomo aro all for small amounts, varying
from $21 to $30, and aro for dates within a
year. It is understood, howeverthnt the evi
dences of fraud have been found for periods
very much longer than that and that for the last
two or thren years false affidavits and false
claims have been forwarded to Washington
from this city in considerable numbers. T e
two warrants Just served aro Raid to bo tho only
ones for perjury in making fnlso witness, the
others bolng for uttering forgod and falsa
claims for pension vouchers.
Tho amount In tho nggregnto Is very lsrgo
and frauds havo been carried on in n systcmatto
manner by a few men. Tho Government oltt
oers aro no), yet ready to glvo out ths full re
sult of their labors.

opticians say that they have now discovered the

and that they aro meant to prevent thooptlclans
from prescribing glasses for their customors,
thus driving the customers to a physician or
oculist for a prescription. The Christian Sci
entists (mostly women) went to Albany lost
week and persuaded Senator Coggoshall to with
draw tho portions ot his bill which affected
them. Thero Is now, say tho opticians, no reason
for the bill at all unless It is' to hurt opticians
