VICE PRESE HOBART'S
:.RIENDS ARE UNEASY
His Condition Is Such as to
Cause Grave Fears.
A CHANGE FOR THE WORSE
Ret!cence is Observ 1 by "Members of
the Distinguished Patient's Family
With Respect to Alarmlug Reports
Now Current.
PATTERSON, N. J., Oct. S0.-There
was considerable anxiety among the in
timate friends and neighbors of Vice
President Hobart over a report that Mr.
Hobart, who has been in poor health,
had taken a change for the worse in the
last 24 hours. It was said that the vice
president passed a tad night and was
quite weak today.
At the Hobart residence the usual re
ticence was observed by Mr. Hobart's
secretary and the servants. The only
information that could be obtained there
was that there had been no alarming
change in the vice president's condition
in the last day or two.
The representative of the family who
answered the calls of newspaper men at
the house, speaking in a guarded way,
said that he did not consider there had
been any material change in Mr. Ho
bart's condition and that he was quite
comfortable today.
Brigadier General Congdon of the
National guard of New Jersey and an
intimate friend of the vice president
said today that Mr. Hobart's condition
was such as to cause grave fears in the
family.
At 2 p. m. Mr. Hobart, though still
conscious, was believed to be sinking.
Dr. William Newton, the family physi
cian, Mrs. Hobart and the nurses are
constantly at the vice president's bed
side.
INSURANCE AS COMMODITY.
Supreme Court Fixes the Negotiable
Status of Life Polices.
ATLANTA, Oct. 30.-The commercial
value and negotiability of life insurance
policies were the subjects Saturday of
decisions in the supreme court of the
state.
In one case it was decided that, "while
a valid contract of insurance cannot
lawfully be taken on the life of another
by one who has no insurable interest
therein, yet, as one has an insurable in
terest in his own life, he may lawfully
procure insurance thereon for the bene
fit of any other person whose interest he
desires to promote. A contract so en
tered into is in no sense a speculative
one."
In another case in which the assign
ment of an insurance policy was at
stake, the supreme court held that a
creditor of a person having his life in
sured, who takes an assignment of the
policy to secure his debt, is only enti
tled to retain, after collecting the policy,
such an amount as is sufficient to pay
the debt, together with all advances the
creditor has made to keep the policy in
force."

BIG VICTORY FOR KNIGHTS.
They Obtain Control of the Walker
County, ANa., Mines.
Bl.MINGHAm, Ala., Oct. 28. - The
Knights of Labor have scored a signal
victory over the United Mine Workers
and have practically obtained control of
the Walker county coal mines, among
the most important in the district. The
fight was in reality a contest for recog
nition at the hands of the big operators
and proved a battle royal, in that its
loss to the United Mine Workers meant
a slau in the face for that organization.
which heretofore practically controlled
all the coal mines in the state.
The test was made at the mines of
the Galloway Coal company, which by
reason of its capacity fixes the scale for
the smaller operatives. Demands for
recognition were made on the company
by the officers of both orders and after
a conference with the officers President
Galloway addressed a communication
to Uaster Workman A. J. O'Keefe of
the Knights of Labor recognizing his
men.
The Walker county mines employ be
tween 1,200 to 2,000 miners and is an
important factor to the labor situation.
UNIVERSITY FACULTY MET.
Prayer of Teachers For a Summer
School Granted.
ATLANTA, Oct. 28.-The prayer of the
teachers of Georgia that they be given
an opportunity to secure summer in
struction at the state university has
been granted, so far as it is possible for
the trustees of the university to grant it.
At a special session of the board of
trustees held in this city yesterday, a
report of the faculty, with plans and
courses of instruction for university
summer sessions, was unanimously
adopted, and all that is necessary to
make the summer school a reality is a
small appropriation by the legislature.
Under the plan which has been
adopted, the first summer session will
be held next summer, beginning July 2
and endmg Aug. 25, eight weeks in all
The courses of instruction which have
been given the approval of the trustees
are especially designed to meet the de
sires of the teachers.

The lleaviest Thing in tliC World.
The heaviest thing in the world is the
metal osmium, the bluish white metal
with violet luster which Mr. Smithson
Tennant discovered 90 years ago in the
residue from dissolved platinum ores.
This metal has a specific gravity of k2.
477; that of gold being 19.265; lead,
11.367; iron, 7.79, and lithium, the
lightest, only 0.594.
The French chemist, Joly, determined
that osmium is likewise the most in
fusible of metals. It coud never be
made to yield to the oxyhydrogen flame
which makes platinum and irridium
run like water, but Joly has been sub
jecting osmium to the exclusively high
temperature of the electric arc which
Moissan has of late employed successful
ly in the manufacture of diamonds.
Under this fierce heat the rare metal,
ruthenium, which used to be deemed all
but infusible, readily melts, but osmium
remains refractory, there being ajoarent
ly only the faintest traces of fusion. On
this account osmium cannot be prepared
in sufficient quantities to make it very
useful in the arts, but its alloy with ir
ridium, which defies the acids, is of
some value, nothing better having been
found wherewith to tip gold pens. Be
ing nonmagnetic, its employment for
the bearings of the mariner's compass
has been advocated.-Popular Science

A Shower of Hats and Shoes.
Charles F. W. Mieglatz contributes
"A Boy's Recollections of the Great
Chicago Fire" to St. Nicholas. Mr.
Mieglatz says:
Once, for a few minutes, I thought it
was all over with me. The flames
sprang from the middle of the block,
on the east side of Wells street between
Washington and Randolph, to the mid
dle of the block between Randolph and
Lake streets. Here a remarkable thing
happened. At the northwest corner of
Wells and Lake streets I stopped for a
moment to catch my breath and to look
back. At the southeast corner there
was a boot and shoe shop, which had a
glass front on the rear alley, similar to
that on the street front, but not so elab
orate. The fire struck this alley front
with a force that swept the boots and
shoes through the shop and into the
street in a flash. A tongue of flame shot
out, rolled across the street and kindled
a tar kettle and a barrel, such as pavers
use, bringing with it a shower of boots
and shoes. Almost at the same instant
the fire threw itself against a hat fac
tory, a few doors east of the boot and
shoe shop. It hit the rear of the build
ing with the same impelling force, and
the bats flew up into the air like spray.
Our Immense Railway System.
The railway system in the United
States employs 36,000 locomotives, 26,
000 passenger cars and 8,000 mail and
baggage cars. These figures seem large
till the number of freight cars is stated,
which is 1,250,000. A passenger train
consisting of locomotive, tender, bag
gage and six passenger cars, with their
contents, is estimatd to weigh about
184 tons. Freight trains sometimes
reach a weight of 550 tons. An ordinary
passenger car costs from $4,000 to $5,
000 and a sleeping car anywhere from
$10,000 to $20,000. The system, with
its gigantic equipment, is practically
tho growth of a single generation. With
the additions of another quarter or half
a century posterity ought to stand and
gaze at its stupendous proportions. But
it will probably be gradually educated
out of all its capacities of wonder, as we
have been out of many of our own.

The Overruling of a Judge.
A judge the other day awoke in the
night to find his room in the possession
of two armed burglars. Covered by the
pistol of one of the marauders, the
judge watched the proceedings with
his usual judicial calm. One of the
depredators found a watch. "Don't take
that, " the judge said, "it has little
value and is a keepsake." "The motion
is overruled, " replied the burglar. "1
appeal," rejoined the judge. The two
burglars consulted, and the spokesman
then replied: "The appeal is allowed.
The case coming on before a full tribunal
of the supreme court, that body is of
the unanimous opinion that the decree
of the lower court should be snestained,
and it is accordingly so ordered." Pock
eting the watch, court adjourned.
