sel. REPUBLIC 8PECIAL.
Philadelphia. April 9. Efficiency of the
new high-pressure fire-main servico was
established at tho official test held in front
of the pumplns station, at Delaware ave
nue and Race street.
The test was witnessed by Chief Ed
ward P. Croker of the New Yorlc lire
There was a cry in
the streets. People
rushed from their
doors and strained
their eyes on the
fighting for life.
Even the poor, pant
ing sufferer in the
aick room was for
eotten while the fam
ily gazed breathless at this strange
tragedy of the air. Then they went back
to the sick room to tell of the terrible
struggle for life they had just witnessed.
It did not occur to them that under their
very eyes a more terrible, more pathetic
struggle was going on daily.
'There can be nothing more pitiful
than the struggle the consumptive
makes against disease. The greatest
help in this struggle is gained by the
use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery. ' It cures obstinate coughs, weak
and bleedjng lungs, emaciation, and
other ailments which if neglected or
unskillfully treated find a fatal termina-
tion in consumption.
"In X89S oncof my daughters was suffering on
account of a aefcie cough, hectic fever, wasting
of flesh and other symptoms of diseased lungs."
writes Rev. Joseph H. Fesperman, of Banum
Sprints, Iredell Co. If. C "I promptly gave
her Dr. R. V. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
with gratifying success, and she now enjoys
excellent health. This being true, I heresy
heartffy endorse your medicines.1

ical Discovery." There is nothing "just
as good" for diseases of the stomach,

Department. Mayor Henry M. Doremus of
-gwark. X. J., and more than a score of
officials from other cities. Mr. Croker
was there on account of the expected In
troduction of the system In New York.
The only thine that marred the success
of the test was the fact that the tempo
rary couplers which connected the Are
hos,e with the pipes running from the sta
tion to tho wharf could not stand the high
pressure, so that the hose became discon
nected repeatedly and fell Into the river.
It was Impossible to raise the pressure
above XO pounds.
A large hose was thrown from the con
necting pipe. and. falling into the river,
writhed about like a huge serpent, lash
ing the water Into a fury. George Match
insky of truck No. 7 dived Into the river,
and, at the risk of being struck by the
heavy nozzle, seized the hose and brought
it ashore. v .
Nearly a. hundred firemen were lined
up along the wharves, controlling four
2-Inch and twelve lV4-inch hose. When
the big engines In the station were started
the sixteen streams shot high in the air
under the moderate pressure, of 139 pounds.
The streams reached an estimated height
of 120 feet. A Mrong eastern breeze in
terfered with the strength of tho streams,
although the test was primarily for ihe
strength of the engines.
While the sixteen streams were being
played over the river, the New York
Jireboat. the Goorge B. McClellan, with
Fire Chief Croker and his partv, steamed
up tile river and docked opposite the
pumping station. The fireboat has Just
been remodeled at tho yard of the New
York Shipbuilding Company in Camden.
The boat left on Its trial trip this morn
ing and steamed down the Delaware fqr
about twer.t-five miles, maintaining an
average speed of twelve knots an hour.
It will be taken to New York to-morrow.
A test was made of four 2-Inch hose
soon after tho arrival of the McClellan.
A pressure of 250 pounds was used, and
Chief Croker expressed himself as greatly
gratified at the demonstration.
The pressure was then concentrated In
one of the large 3-inch deluge sets, and
the stream was thrown to a height esti
mated at about 200 feet.
When the test was completed the hose
on the deck of the McClellan was tried.
A pressure of 153 pounds was used, and
the stream from the New York fireboat
was thrown across the roof of Recreation
pier, an approximate distance of 200 feet.
After the .McClellan had shown Its ability
the Philadelphia fireboat Stuart gave a
similar exhibition with a hose of wider
nczs'.e. and succeeded in covering jn equal
Chief Croker was slightly cut on the
head by striking against an iron bar on
the McClellan. The wound was prompt
'I jm most satlbflcd with the test." said
Mr. Croker. "I. am convinced that high
pleasure is the only thing, and we have
all got to hare it,"
Accompanying Chief Croker on the Mc
Clellan were secretary A. M. Downes of
the New York Fire Department, Fire Com
missioner Haves. John H. O'Brien, secre

provements will bo the building of a young
men's den, to be attached to the Idle Hour
mansion, for the exclusive uso of the
"boys" who are always found among the
Invited guests at all Idle Hour social func
tions. This addition to the mansion was decided
upon by Sir. Vanderbilt on the occasion of
his las big party, when in the midst of
the evening all the young men of the
party were suddenly missing. Anxious in
quiries wero made by Mr. and Mrs. Van
derbilt for the missing ones, and finally
tearching parties were dispatched to scour
the place for them. The party cf runa
ways was found out in the coachmen's
building, having a. stag party.
It is said that Mr. Vanderbilt was great
ly grieved that any portion of hla guests
were obliged to retreat from his hospita
ble mansion to a barn to find real enjoy

young men's den. which is already In
course of building, and will be in point of
exterior -architecture as imposing as any
other section of the mansion.

THE ItEVEREND DOCTOR GEOnGE CIARK HOUGHTON,
Pastor of "The LJttlc Chuicli Around the Corner."
nminuc f peciau
New York. April 9. It is not as easy to
get married at the "Little Church Around
the Corner" as some persons think.
Moreover, If the plans of tho Reverend
Doctor Georgo Clarke Houghton, rector of
the parish, do not miscarry it will be still
At a moat conservative estimate at least
1,000 persons yearly are Joined together in
the bonds of wedlock by Doctor Houghton
and fully one-half that number are turned
As to why somo couples are made man
and wife and others are refused Dootor
Houghton has some Interesting reasons.
Ho also has some Ideas that he wishes to
put into execution, and for this purpose
he and the vestrymen of the parish have
undor consideration tho purchase of two
houses' Immediately adjoining tho parish
house on the east.
Stepa also have been taken looking to
the acquisition of other property at Twenty-ninth
street and Second avenue, and
the site will bo used for a bulhllng that
will be made a home for Impecunious
young women who havo taken up soma ar
Tho "Uttlo Church Around tho Corner"
Is more famous in hymeneal lore than any
other sacred edifice In the world.
Its ecclesiastical designation is the
Church of the Transfiguration, but doubt
less thera are thousands who have been
married there who do lfot know It by this
It is one of the historic spots In New
York. There is not a driver of a Fifth
avenue stage who is not compelled by his
Inquisitive passengern to tell them some
thing about It as they bowl post Twenty
ninth street and sec the modest little
btructuro nestling unprettntlouply among
the houses between Fifth and Madison
So well known is it that It Is not neces
sary to tell how It got its name cr even
to repeat tho half contemptuous! remark
that made It the Mecca of all actors and
actresses, whether for worship, marriage
ccremonv or the last rites over some de
parted member of the profession.
MAGNET FOR MARRIAGE.
But it is for its marriages that the "Lit
tle Churoh Around the Corner" is most
noted. Ask a cabman where is the best
place to get married, and nine chances
out pf ten ho will tell you the "Little
Church Around the Corner."
It is known all over the world. Coupleo
who have met one another and fallen In
love abroad have mado a weddlrg at tho
little brawn stone church the climax of
Couples have been known to have come
from the Riviera. Liverpool. Hamburg and

Corner" the minute they landed on Amer
It has seen many a consummation of a
love affair that had its inception on a
homevtard vojage on a line, and the drive
to the church has been made even before
the baggage was sent to the hotel.
One thousand marriages a yeir Is well
within th limits of conservatism. Last
January Doctor Houghton performed the
ci remonv for IIS couples.
He rejected sixty couples. But these fig
ures do not Include the marriages per
formed bv his curates, and it Is rate to
assume that at least two score for Jan
uary alone might be added to make the
total of marriages performed In the
Not a day passes that from live to ten
couples do not call to see Doctor Houghton
about performing a marriage ceremony.
These are not all "sudden affairs." and in
many cayes arrangements are made wteks
ahead. The rector himself cannot see all
He has not the time, for it must be
borne in mind that his parochial duties
rtre nLmberlecs and exacting.
Doctor Houghton is a man of great bod
ily and mental igor. He has a com
mindlm and magnetic presence. His large,
durk brown cyts aro Keen, but kindly.
He looks iust the man to give counsel
to jcuthful lovers or to detect nnd sternly
denounce fraud or folly on the part of ap
plicants for marrHge. He if tall and fine
ly proportioned, and from app aranres
weipht: a little mora than a hundred and
AVRITING CHURCH HISTORY.
At present Doctor Houghton is writing
a history of the Church of the Transfig
uration, which will be dedicated to his
uncle, who founded the parish and was un
til his death Its rector. In this book, the
manuscript of which will soon be reidy
for tho puDlishers. there will be much to
Interest friends of the church. The pro
ceeds from the sale of the book will be
used for charitable purposes.
Doctor Houghton's Income from wedding
fees should net him a very handsome sum.
Once he was asked what this source of
revenue would amount to in the course of
"I nn't tell vou that." he replied, with
a smile. "Somo persons give J10S, some
give $10 and some eive 15."
Nevertheless, it is thought he receives at
least NO.OOO a year from wedding fees, and
It is also said that practically every cent
of it gfs to the charitable enterprises in
which he takes such a deep Interest.
The purpose for which the two houses
adjoining the parish buildings will be used.
In case they aro purchased, is unique in
the historv of modern philanthropy. In
spite of this fact. It will be seen that the
consummation would co far to combat
Kome of the most peculiar conditions that
lead to hastv and HI considered marriages.
This lendR up to the question of why Doc
tor Houghton refuses to perform the nup
tial ceremony for so many couples.
"Perhaps the most harrowing rart of
my duties is refusing to marry persons
who call here." said Doctor Houghton re
cently. "I ought to be proof against tears
p.nd pleadings, and I think I am where my
duty is plain, but nevertheless such scenes
are nerve racking In the extreme.
"I have ben kept in the parish office for
hours listening to the appeals and heart
rending entreaties of those, whom I could
not consistently unite In the bonds of mat
rimony. Sometimes they get down on their
knees and plead both of them together
and no matter what indifference the man
iray show, it Is a foregone, conclusion
that a refusal will bring tear from the
PATHOLOGY AND LOVE.
"Why do I reject them? There are
many reasons consumption, for Instance.
I reserve to myself the right to Judge
whether persons who come to mo are fitted
by health or otherwise to marry. I have
had others come to mo where the man or
the woman did not ieem to be mentally
strong, and I have unhesitatingly turned

"It the woman can return Doctor
Houghton's steady gaze and If 11 a false
hood sho must have admirable self-control.
I don't believe she can do it."
Doctor Houghton also surrounds himself
with every safeguard to avoid marrying
Eersons who are not of age. He has a
lank form thnt ho requires all to sign
under oath, and the affidavit Is so explicit
that the person making a false statement
would bo guilty of perjury.
"Our Rescue Home, as we rropoia to
call our new venture, Is not for applicants
of theo clashes." said Doctor Houghton.
"You have no conception of the number
of persons who come to get married while
under the influence of liquor, and in some
cases where one or the ether is subjected
to undue influence. I believe I may say
that the majoritv of the cases in which I
retuso to officiate spring from these
causes. I am not prepared to discuss the
efficacy of hypnotism as a means of com
pelling one person to do the bidding of
nnother. but I think I have seen some
fairly good examples of this sort.
"Sometimes the man ls tho offender, hut
more often it is Jho designing woman. Not
long ago I was called Into the parish
office, by a request from a couple. The
man wa3 more than SO j-ears old. It hap
pened that I knew him, as ho lived in a
brown stone mansion In Fifth avenue. He
was a man of considerable v.oalth and was
reputed to be worth not lev than half a

do for you?'
"The old gentleman seemed vary much

the woman helplessly.

" 'I know you do.' I said to the woman.
But I want to talk to Mr. So-and-ro.' I
asked hr to step Into nn adjoining room,
as I wished to sneak to the old gentle
man In private. She refused.
" 'Very well.' I replied. 'If you wish to

"She agreed. I turned to tho old man.
"'Isn't our home life happy nnd are
not vour children treating vou well?'
" "Yes." he replied, hanging his head.
" A man of your age doesn't need a
wife.' I went on. 'You have dutiful chil
dren and plenty of orvants.
" 'Yes. I know that.' lie replied, 'hut I'm
"I advised travel, but he demurred. I
laid the whole sublect before him. and all
the time the woman was nearly bursting
to speak. Finally the old man came
" "You are right.' he said. 'I'll take your
advice I didn't want to marry her. She
wanted to marry me."
TEUIFUL. BUT BAFrLED.
"Tho woman stormed and wept. She
said I had used influence. "Not so much
as you have." I answered. V.'e put her In
a cab, and as she drove away bv herself
she stuck her head out of the window
and said: 'I'll never forgive you."
"And many another woman who has met
tho same opposition from me has felt the
same way toward me, whether she has
said it or not.
"As I said before. I have a great deal of
trouble with intoxicated couples. They ap
pear mostly at night, and sometimes there
are as manv as three or four in a night
whose brains are so addled by liquor that
they hardly know what they are doing.
Sometimes one or the other use this
me"in3 of obtaining the consent of the re
luctant one to get married. There are
many nltlful enses of this sort. The two
mav have gone out to dinner. Tho girl
nrobablv Is highly respectab'e,- but she has
taken wine with the meal. Soon she is In
such a condition that she cannot go home.
What is to be done? Why. get married!

later he turned to me. "You have given

"Then tho girl began to weep. Soon she
was screaming. She vowed ehe woold sue

and kicked and shrieked. The night was
made hideous by her outcries. .
"She screamed after he was put Into the

even after the vehicle had crossed Fifth
