WANAMAKE AND THE KEY5J0NE.
Tha Charge That lT Tfcaa a Stockholder
Agaia Brooght Vp Hi Denial
WAsin!t(rroy, June 25. A re legrva from
Philadelphia says that the councils com
mittee investigating the Ky?tone bank
failure yesterday discovered ttat be-a ies
the 2,516 shares of bank stock that Waua
maker held as collateral, a block of 2,3
shares wai. in his tame, aiid that he had
signed some of the transfers of tte latter
atock. This wa brought out in the exam
ination of Receiver Yardly, and the
bank's books were produced to prove it.
As Mr. Wacamaker stated before the com
mittee some days ao, as printed in tbee
di-spatche. that his sole connection with
the bank.was that c depositor, and that
be had never been a director, officer or
stockholder, he was asked last night what
he had to say to the alleged development.
Itoclares the Statement Ridlculon.
. Mr. Wanamak.tr said the statement was
ridiculous, and added: ' I do not exactly
know what took place at the crtnmittee
meeting to-day; but 1 hope they will
probe to the uttermost everything about
the reported overissue of the Keystone
stock. I never owned a share of Keystone
stock by purchase or gift, nor did I ever
find a share of it, and the books of the
bank will prove that I was never re
corded as a stockholder, if they are prop
erly kept. It is possible, however, that if
the bank could overissue stock, it could do
queer things in bookkeeping. I am not
responsible for that. Some of the certifi
cates I first held might have been in my
name and then transferred to the names
in the certificates I surrendered.
How It Might Have Ocrurred.
The same stock i frequently so trans
ferred. On one ooeak.n I obtained a loan
for Mr. Luca on his stock from a trust
company of which I was director, which
loan was paid off by the Lucas estate after
his death, as its attorney will attest if
called. These certificates were ia my
name, bat I did not own them nor have a
ceut of lnteaes in the loan, which was
purely an act of friendship, in my testi
mony before the cmiaittee I cos Sued my
self to the stock held by me in tbe Read
ing operation, which was the only stock I
bad interest in then only as collateral, and
the fact remains exactly as I stated it. I
never owned a share of stock at any time,
and the stock ledger of the bank ought to
PRODUCING RAIN EY CONCUSSION.
Initial Experiments with Hydrogen Gas
Washisgtos, June 25. Some interest
ing experiments were made near this city
yesterday in the way of carrying out the
provisions of the agricultural appropria
tion bill, to ascertain the possibility of
producing rain in tbe arid regions. Pro
fessor Dyhrenf urth, as special agent of tbe
agricultural department, exploded at a
high altitude several balloons inflated
with hydrogen gas. " Tbe concussions were
of great force, tbe first balloon being ex
ploded at a height of Wu feet. The bal
loons were held by wires, and when they
reached a sufficient height a battery was
applied which- fired fuses in tbe neck of
the balloon and exploded tbe gas. It is
tbe first time that hydrogen gas has ever
been manufactured In any quantity.
Object of the Experiment.
The object of the experiments was to de
termine tbe a vail ibility of the apparatus,
both for manufacturing tbe gas and ex
ploding it. The machinery is still ciude
and imperfect, but its success is assured.
Whether the purpose for which it was de
signedthat of cawing rain will be ac
complished remains to be demonstrated.
The balloon used yesterday held 525 cubic
feet of gas. Tbe appropriation is small
and will not go beyond the experimental
xa.g hot after July 1 a larger app roprla
tion will f available and somecsusfac
tory results may be reached.

New London, Conn., June 25. There
were thou-sands of spectators along the
course rowed by the freshmen crews of
Yale, Harvard, ahd Columbia colleges yes

of the Necessity of the w Inspection
Profeor .Michel Comment.
Chicago. June 25. Trichin have been
found in the meat of the hogs killed at the
stock yards. Professor Mkhtls and his
corps of trained microsccpists, who are
making the federal inspection of pork in
in the big rooms of Nelson Morris's build
lag on Uaistead street, began finding the
parasite yesterday. All day long seven
teen pretty women and fifteen men were
bending over glistening microscopes and
peering through powerful glasses at infin
itesimal pieces of meat which had been
cut from the diapraghms and tenderloins
of bogs just killed in the abattoirs in tbe
A Big. Fat Trichina Foand.
Of a sudden the object for which the
government instituted the inspection was
discovered. It was a big, fat trichina
lying dormant in his cyst and ready to
burst from his "shell" the instant the
juices of the human stomach attacked it.
The discovery showed that the parasite is
in some of tbe hogs killed at the stock
yartu. ibe finding of more trichina dur
ing toe day proved that many hogs were
Xeattj for Inspection.
All this clearlv shows that the onicker
the microscopic inspection of pork is ex-
lenuea so as to embrace everv norker slain
at the yards, the better it will be for the
persons who eat the meat of the bog in al
most any form. I'rofessor Michels and
his force of expert microscopists worked
hard all day. Little tin cans containing
the speciniers from frvshiy killed hogs
were piled up on table and scores of wood
en ca m- in v. hich were packed microscopes
ior oiner experts yet to be chosen were be
ing packed away in a spare room.
Destroyed the Infected CarcaMc.
As each operator became satisfied with
the healthy icmdif ion of the animal whose
flesh was under inspection a blank was
filled out to liiat effect and handed to Pro
fessor Michels. Then the hoc was readv
for the hungry people of the world. But
the trichina stricken meat was classified
as dangerous to health, and with
in a few moments the carcass
was destroyed. A powerful micro
scope stood npon a stand in Professor
-Micfcels room. Its locked classes held a
piece of meat in which a trichina was
coiled up like a snake. Although only an

strument revealed an anatomical speci

More Trichime Than Expected.
"In one way,"' said Professor Michaels,
"the announcement that we have found
trichinae may be unpleasant to packers,
and prove a source of alarm to the people
who e.t jiork. but it should also be re
membered that the discovery proves the
necessity of microscopic inspection of pork
and the thoroughness with which we ae
conducting our work. My assistants are
wtsking with enthusiasm, and some
of the plates prepared by the
young women are so neatly
and scientifically executed that it
is doubtful if I could have done better
and you know that I have been a micro-
scopist for t-enty-five years. Three days
of inspection of pork under the microscope
have revealed more trichinae than I ex
pected to find. I do not care to inform
the press the number of hogs we have
found, to be infected. It might cause
alarm'. We have foand the parasite in
Chicago pork, and wherever it has been
discovered the meat of tbe hog has been

A VICTORY FOR CAMPBELL.
Tlie Ohio Democratic Committee Knocks
Oat Cincinnati Primaries.
Cincinnati, June 25. The Democratic
stite convention will be held in Cleveland
July 14 and 15. The state central commit
ter has decided that the ratio of delegates
a portioned to each county must be made
on the vote of 1390, and not that of 1S89,
wl.ich was the Campbell vote. This
knocks out the primaries of the Hamilton
county Democrats, which were held last
Sa turday, and makes legal the primaries
of several other counties which have al
ready indorsed Governor Campbell. The
coiamittee also decided that no mass dele
gation will be recognized. Allen W.
