Explanatory Note: The above map shows the weather conditions prevailing over the
country at 8 o'clock this morning. Eastern time. Solid lines are Isobars or lines of
equal air pressuro, drawn for each, tenth of an inch. Dotted lines are isotherms, or
liuesof equal temperature, drawn for each ten degrees. Shaded areas are regions
where rain or snow has fallen during the preceding twelve hours. The words
"high" and "low" show location of areas ofhlghaodlow barometer. The symbols at
the stations show the state of the wcatherand'UirecUou of the wmd. Small arrows
fly with the wind ..
Tbe most Interesting point on theabovc map is the development of the gulf storm
or West India cj clone. These Btortns must not be confused with the very much smaller
and more destructive "tornado" of the West, very frequently called "cyclone" by
mistake. The "cyclotw" shows a marked depression of air pressure at the center and
often a diameter of 1,000 or 1,500 miles. They are generally attend
ed by severe electric dlsturban ances, heavy downpours of rain
and most violent and destructive winds. These winds blow around the storm
from right to left, or In the way one would turn clock bands backward, counter clock
wise, ir a ship passes through tbe ccn ter"lt finds a calm and clear skies at the
very center, but Immediately after the 1v ind shifts to an opposite quarter and blows
with even greater violence. The sea Itself Is tremendously agitated. These
storms frequently form In the Wlndwardlslands, and at the beginning move toward
the northwest. They recover In Florida or the east gulf, and move up the Atlantic
coast, frequently causing serious disas ters to shipping.
The present storm seems to have taken Its origin In the central gulf, and has
thus far shown very little violence win d twenty-eight miles per hour from north
at New Orleans. Signals are hoisted on t he middle gulf coast and cautionary Infor
mation signals on the Florida, Georgia a nd South Carolina coasts. The storm will
probably take a northeast direction, an-d If so there will be a heavy downpour
of rain within the next forty-eight hours In this city and tbe Middle Atlantic States. ,
The map shows a ridge of high pressure extending from the Florida coast
to Ontario, and as this moves Into the At hurtle opportunity will be given the gulf
storm to develop. Bains have fallen In the South Atlantic and East gulf States.
The northwest storm has moved from Alberta and Sooth Dakota. An Interest

TOCSSAI.VJ GETS HIS LICENSE.
Old CaaeFluaPy.Settied by tlie Excise
The' excise board to-day authorized a re

at No. "1249 Seventh street northwest.
There has been some controversy over this
case. License was refused In January for
the same premises, upon somS'obJccllou
being filed, and the owner ot-the building,
Charles Mndcs, thereupon had the building,
torn down and a new one erected.
He also opened communication between
tbe new structure and an adjoining build
ing, throwing the two together for use as
a hotel. Upon completion of these arrange
ments the application for license was re
newed. An Inspection of the hotel by Assistant
Clerk Woodward showed that tlie two
buildings had a .total of twenty-six rooms,
one more than the law requires for the ac
commodation of guests, bat Toussalnt's
family consists, of four persons, and 11 was
a question whether the buildings were still
of sufficient capacity.
In order to obviate this, still another
room was added as a guest chamber, and ns
It was reported by Lieut. Tecple that a ma
jority of the residents, forly-three'out of
seventy-four, had indorsed the application,

HltlHHT FOR HEAL ESTATE.
Market Taken On a Good Tone and
Sulea Are Brisk.
According to real estate men , Washington
is rapidly recovering tone in that line of
business. They renerally report a bright
ening ot the market, a sure sign Ufa brisk
winter. In conversation with a Times -reporter
Mr. A. P. Farduu iald to-day:
"In regard to real estate I have not lost
confidence in either urban or suburban
property. While there is a large number
of vacant houses In this city owing to dull
ness of tbe times, Washington In this con
nection compares favorably with other
cities. Washington, as Is well known, is
tbe lat tn feel the bad effect.) ot business
depression, and is the last to recover.
The District of Columbia, above all other
places, should necessarily feel early the
effects of tbe revival ot business, from the
fact that It is tbe seat of government.
"The sales of real estate in this District,
like those everywhere else, bave been
slow the last few years, but then there
has been far less sacrifice of property
here than in any other portion of the coun
try. Persons who may desire to buy in
the city or suburbs will be disappointed in
obtaining it at prices less than its real
value, or, In other words, at a sacrifice.
"In fact. I bave known in tbe last few
months of the sale of city lots, especially
In the northwestern and immediate sub
urban property, at an increase over prices
of three years ago. There-Is no reason for
our people to become discouraged. It
may be a little while yet before tales will
be am brisk as heretofore, but no holders
of good real estate should feel that they
have not So. 1 investments. Within the
next year or two this fjet will develop itselt
and the holders will be agreeably sur
prised at the profits realized from their Ju

Tbe first member of tbe firm is Post

tbe attorney, was appointed receiver.
This action was taken to-day as a result
ot a bin in equity Hied yesterday after
noon .by Mr. J. J. Darlington, counsel for
Mr. Buoff , asking for a dissolution of the
"We filed the bill yesterday afternoon
and requested that it be withheld from
publication,'' said Mr. Darlington, 'be
cause of tbe prominence of tbe parties to
Mr. Darlington declined to talk on the
matter, lie said the attorneys on both sides
appeared before Judge Cole yesterdayafter-
noon and tbe contents of the bill were
stated to him , though no formal reading
of it was made The court announced that
a receiver would be appointed to-day, as
Mr. Job Barnard, of Barnard & Edwards,
refused to tell why it was sought to dis
solve tbe partnership.
A significant feature in the case lies
In tbe fact that nn attachment for $31C'13
unpaid store rent was yesterday evening
Issued on the law side of tbe court against
the firm on the petition of Mary J. Mark
riter, owner of the property.
