For the Lives Lost in the Coliapsec
The coroner's jury which has been investi
gating the collapse of the Ireland building
corner of West Broadway. and West Thir<
streets. New York. three weeks ago, were or
Friday charged by the coroner and retired
at 11:45 o'clock a. m. to consider their ver
diet. The coroner concluded his ctarge a
"The question for you to decide is, wha
was the primary cause and could it have
been avoided and the lives of these meE
saved? If it could have been, then it is you:
duty to designate by name every person wh<
you may deem culpable of either negligence
earelessness. incompetency or indifference.'
The jury held the following men respon;
sible for the death of those who were killed
in the collapsed building:
John Parker. Thomas Walker, Charles R
Behrens, Thomas Murray, Edward J. You
dale and Dennis A. Buckley.
Joseph Guider and John E. Selleck were
exonerated by the jury.
The collapse, the jury says, was caused b)
insufficient foundation, and that the middli
column was weakened by being above the
old eistern. The iron work of the old build
ing was defective.

EX-SENATOR JARVIS' SPEECIt
AT MORIGANTON, N. C,
Advised His Auditors to Study the
Question and Join Whatever
Party They Might Believe
Would Give Them
Ex-Senator Jarvis spoke in the cottt house
at Morganton, N. C., in the interval between
the morning and afternoon ?essions of ludge
Governor Jarvis said his presonce wi
due to repeated pressing invitatious for
him to speak in 3organton from a distin
guished citizen of the town. le said he
would speak with kindness and good will to
The pcople of the United States are all
powerful: they are the real sovereigns, and
hey, ultimately, must determine the finat=
cial policy of this country, No matter wha
the attitude of the great men of the day diu
these questions of governtnent and political
economy, the people must finally settle them
at the ballot box. where the carriage-driver
of the Preside:t stands an equal ehoAt fith
that dignitary. and th hoot-bli-ek of the
Secretary of the Trea-suirY 'ith him.
H, to(Ia~v would address himself to the
of a subject which touched every
home, every inilustry. every individual. "I
care not how grand a man you are, on tha
question I discuss to-day the situation iS tho
same in the hunblcst fIre'iio as with that of
the riefiest man in the land. I need not tell
you it is the great money question-what i4
to be the dinancial policy of this great edua=
try of ours."
He said he was speakiujig tC. those only who
did not know more about the finan'ial.ques
tion than he did.- H: did not know all
about it, and he doubted if any man did.
Vut he hal convictions n the question, thn
resuit of much reflection and tudy, Vo0l
merly the papers wrr full of talk of "thd
I:,rjf.' but now yta 'naTnot pick tip It 10
litical pape (and soimeti'mesa religious jour
nal) without seeing something about two
wor-is: bi-m'taism" and "mono-metal
lisa." Th speaker proceeded- to give hi3
ideas of the tw.) terms: "A bi-metallist is a
man in favor of the free nnd unlimited use
of both gold and silver, as the money of the
peolle." O: the othor hand, "a mono-me
tallist is a man in favor of disearding one
metal and simply using the, othler, generally
gold. and always gold in the "United States."
"Nor.' continued the speaker, "1 want to
lay down this proposition: M.ney may and
ought to be d~vided into two great classes:
First, primary or redemption money; and
seond, redcemable or secondary money.
The first is always metallie, gold or silver, or
both. Take a silver or gol coint No prom
is- to redeem is stamped on it, It is re
demptio , money itself. You will see written
thereon these four memorable words: -In
God we trust.' Iow you or I shall interpret
them makes no matter. but as for me I can
say 'Happy is the man who trusts in the
living God, for all alon- in the history of the
world we see the evidences of IIis benefi
cenee." This over-ruling providence was
maimfested in God's putting gold and silver
into the earth, and allowing enough of it for
.,ll the needs -f commerce.
Then again take a Treasury note. If it is
a $5 "ote you see on it a promise that the
ITreasury or government will pay to the
holder. wh~en presented at the proper place
S 5 in coin, It is redeemnable because of the
nromise to r~edoem in coin."
'Another proposition: redemption or pri
mary money ahvays measures the value of
iproperty. This is a proposition which can
inot be disputed. A yard, and inch, a pound,
-are standards of measurement or weight.
So a dollar is a measure of value. The value
-of anything is measured by something whichi
by comnmon consent has been established ty
Up to 1872l, when silver was demnonetize'd,
a dollar's worth meant anythin;, worth 371%~
-grains of pure silver or with the alloy 412%
grains of standard silver. An act of Con
gress early in the history of this country
said that must be the unit of value ma this
* oumntry by which all the property of this
z ountrv should be measured,
Another proposition still, was that re
deemable money, paper, wais simply used as
a medium of exchange. Here .the speaker
went into an explanation of credits ulti
miately redeemable in coin. He illustrated
by showing how a check might pay many
iebts before being presented at the bank.
The cheek didn't measure value; it was
simply a mnedium of exchange. '
One more proposition the specaker said he
wished to make: "JTust as~ von reduce the
stock of redleemnable mo)ney you re duce the
Kvalue of all prope'rty,'so that when Congress,
in 187;3. struck dlown silver as redeemable
money, it redued the value of property,and
iil valuos have since declined about one
half. Your wheat, corn, cotton, lands and
prodlucts of the soil have been reduced by it
about one-half in value."
Then said Governor Jarvis: "If I'm cor
Srect in that statement. what ought we to do'
as an intelligent, liberty-loving people? It
is the bounden duty of the American people
to restore silver to its position before 1873."
* il nther proposition: the ideal money
for the use of the people is that money
- which is fixed, invariable and permanent, in
its measure of values. If I exchange my
-note with you for $100, payable in three
v ears. it is important that I should know
w hat that note should require when it be
-conmes dlue-to know how much- of land, or
wheat, or iron, etc., etc., it is going to take
to pamy that note. If it takes twice as much
to pay as when the note was given, I am
Ihurt; if only half, then you are hurt.
"But I will show you that the best stand
ard of value is when you have both gold and
silver. Together they form the most sta~e
money in value the 'world ever yet tried.
But wh-len you take a single metal, as a stand
ard of value, just as you make it plentiful,
its purchasing pioweur goes dlown; or scarce.
utp..: .A single standard. therefore, is a vari
I ble measure of value,
-In 1s;:3 gold was made the standard of
lvalue, and to-day it ta'kes twice as much of
the produets of the soil and of labor to pur
chase $100 ais it dlid prior to tue demonetiza
tioni of silv'r.
"Oumr friends." said the speaker. "who an
tagoizea free silver say the reason lands and
produ'ts have gene down is (Iue to other
en'uses. mlui not t'' the applreciation of gold,
Thiev talk ab'.ut th~e honiest dollar. Some

"1TITE EARTHt TREMB11LED."1
And Shook Up the New York and New
An earthquake shook Chester, Pa., about
six o'clock Sunday morning and startled
many people. The vibration did not con
tinue longer than several seconds.
At Easton, Pa., a very perceptible tremble
of the earth was felt in the e stern part of
that city shortly after 6 o'clock Bunday,
At Atlantic Highlands, N. J., Sunday, the
erth quake was accompanied by a low
tumbling sound that resembled thunder.
Many people arose from their beds in terror.
The shock lasted about 45 seconds. At En
glewood, N. J., the wave seemed to pass
north to south. Mirrors were swayed on the
walls of dwelling, clocks were made to strike
out of time and people in bed were awaken
ed bythe vibrations of the earth.
At Brooklyn, N. Y., three distinct earth
quake shocks were felt about the same time.
The shock was severe in Coney Island and
many people were awakened from their
sleep. Pictures, crockery and even furniture
in many houses were dislodged from their
positions and their owners who were not
awakened by the earthquake wondered how
it came to pass. The shake was felt at many
other points in New Jersey and eastern
Pennsylvania. In New York State, Tarry
town, Pocanticohills, Irvington, andl Scar
borough, were in the path of the earthquake
'early Sunday morning. Buildings in the
different villages trembled perceptibly.
Glass and china rattled on their shelves, and
in several instances was broken to pieces.
Suspended objects swayed for some time af
ter the vibration had ceased. The seismic
disturbance occurred at 6:10 a, in., and the
general direction was from the southwest.

'ew Orleans Ticket Brokers Were O
Working a Great Scheme.
The firm of Barnett & Wenar, ticket bro'
ers. doing business on Canal street, New
rleans. have for some time been giving evi- Fl
ence that the firm was engaged in a boom- m,
ag business. For months past the Southern
acifle railroad has been quietly investigat- in!
ag the travel to and from points in which st<
is interested. There was a great passen- in
er business, but somehow the reeenues did
ot compare with the number of tickets
old. Evidently something was wrong and
he company tried every plan to unearth the
ystery without success. The more it was
nvestigated the more apparent it became th
hat a gigantic fraud was being perpetrated tb
n the Southern Pallie. a I
Finally new Southern Paciict tickets were th
rinted and quickiy distributed in all see- I ,
ions where it appeared the fraud was being iw
orked. A minute eheek mark on these in
ew tickets was the only differenee between pj
hem and the old issue. The special agent of
f the cempany at this point then begun to il
ook for bogus tickets. One ticket lacking b
he cheek mark turned up and vith this clew
he special agent soon run the trail down. rn
ie conspirators offered the agent :25.000 if i
ie would simply keep his mouth shut and gr
et thin::s run along as they had been run- ri;
3ing for so long. ie figured out that whilo Ei
[e felt sure lie had his own case dead to pi
rights. a successful prosecution might fail if m1
he eviden'e of fraud were not strengthened fu
>v more conclusive proof. He asked them pi
r6r time to coi sider the offer and aid the
wheme before the railroad company oflicers. 61
With their approval he appareintly permitted M
himself to be made a party to the fraudulent t0
pratiees, but began to collect evidence of fe
the guilt 'of the conspirators. Saturday the
ase was ripe and Baruett & Wenar, ticket is
brokers, were arrested and the printers of t(
he tickets and all concerned will be made
arties to a fraud of surpassing interest and tM
col ssal proportiois. whiei can only be ad

nett & Wenar were brought before United

der $2.000 bonds for their appearance before 1,

Fiddle Spruce is Scarce.
An old lumberman just in from the
headwaters of the Allegash, above
Moosehead Lake, says there are 50,03D
hundred-dollar violins growing on two
townships of land near Lobster Lake.
Until lately, says an authority on the
fiddle spruce, about all the spruce fit
to make into violins was procured near
Lake Saranac, N. Y., and here it was
getting to be so scarce that the men
who were sent to hunt it up made poor
wages. In fact the chief supply of
"fiddle wood" has of late come from
the spruce and fir floor boards of the.
colonial mansions. It is found that
clear boards, seasoned for years under
cover, give forth a very resonant tone,
even if they are not fine grained and
"kinky," like the true violin sprace.
Boards from the under floors of aged
houses are preferred, and those which
were laid nearest the big old chimneys
are the best of all. Kiln drying spoiis
the tone of the choicest woods; but a
slow, dry heat, away from the light,
under such conditions as floor boards
are dried, seems to bring out tha
melody in stock that is worthless when
treated by the usual methods.
The true "fiddle spruce" is the
"abies rubra" of Gray's botany, and
it seems to be a fine-grained variety
of the "abies nigra," or black "beer
spruce," which is common throughout
the Eastern States. It is found on
cold hillsides at the far North, and it
is a slow-growing, close-fibred wood of
a reddish tint, and remarkable free
fromrosin. When a man discovers a tree
of this class, largo and straight and
free from big limbs and knots, he can
ventura to fell it, knowing that he
stands about one chance in twenty of
finding a fiddle spruce. If the grain
of the wood proves straight, with a
cleavage which makes toothpicks, he
has spoiled a timber tree for nothing.
If the wood is "kinky," however, and
full of dots, like a bird's-eye maple.
the tree is worth fifty cents a cubic
foot where itlies, and three times that
sum when it is sawed and seasoned.
This wool not only gives an even,
resonant sound when made into a vio
!n, but it takes a beautiful polish,
which brings out the wavy and spot
ted fibre in a way to make it admired
by all. About fifty years ago a man
in Newport, N. H., planted the cones
of a fiddle spruce in a nursery, hoping,
as he said "to raise his own fiddles."
They grew well, but out of over 200
seedlings there was not a single tree
fit to make into violins. -Springfield
