The work of the Central Union Telephone Company operators has been heavily in creased as a result of the wave of pros perity. It has been necessary to employ three extra telephone operators for local business. The number of calls has in creased to an unusual extent during the last few weeks. It has gradually grown better for the last three or four months, but the increase has been more marked in the last few weeks. All the operators are kept busy up to 10 o’clock at night. Coun try business, Manager Hill says, has in creased very largely. This is shown by the fact that 1,31X1 more messages have been sent from Indianapolis to country towns this month than during August of last year. MR. LEiGHTY IN CHARGE. Little Formality in Transfer of the Pension Office. Mr. Leighty, the new pension agent for Indiana, assumed office yesterday. The for malitivs were very meager. The new agent walked in and receipted for $2,600,000 in vouchers on hand. He was introduced to the members of the office force, there was a little handshaking as Mr. Spencer, the re tiring agent, said farewell, and the w-ork of the office went along. Now that he is out of office, Mr. Spencer feels fr.-e to fell his troubles, lie decl ares that when he entered the office there were 500 applicants lor places and that in order to get sleep at night he had to have his door bell taken off. Like most Democrats just now, he regards the civil-service law as a good thing. Injured on .Yew Journul Building. Amos Remler, a workman at the new Journal building, fell through the elevator shaft yesterday afternoon and fractured several ribs. He had gone to the top of the building to cover a scuttle hole during the storm and stepped into the shaft, which had been left open. It was feared he had suffered Inn rnul injuries in addition to the fracture of the ribs. He was taken to his home, at No. Li Elk street. The I’lown Watt Fined. Claude Duvall was lined in the Police Court yesterday for disturbing the peace. The complainant was Paul Mascari, a fruit dealer at Virginia avenue and South street. Tuesday night Duvall dressed up like a clown and with a painted face went about the streets advertising a picnic to be given by. a society. The Italian claimed Duvall hud frightened his child by running after it. Brasu and Iron Bcdateads.—YY’m. L. Elder. A GALE-SWEPT CITY ♦ TIIE WIND REACHED A VELOCITY OF SIXTY-FOUR MILES AX HOUR, * Annlnea, Treea, Roofa and Pole, Scurried About the Street* of Indianapolis Yesterday. # LITTLE INJURY TO PEOPLE V BALL PARK GRAND STAND, FILLED WITH SPECTATORS, THREATENED. ♦ A “Local” Storm at 2:10 o’clock In the Afternoon—Telephone Serv ice Crippled. A windstorm, the fiercest, perhaps, that has been witnessed in Indianapolis, swept over the city yesterday afternoon- It be gan about 2:10 o’clock and continued with great violence for a half hour. At the Weather Office it is said that the wind reached a velocity of about sixty-four miles during the fiercest blasts. After sand and dust had been blown for ten minutes the rain came down in almost solid sheets. It gave the asphalt pavements the best clean ing they have had for weeks. Although the rain poured down as if the clouds had been rent apart, there was not much of a precipitation, as the storm was of short duration. It is estimated by the weather officials that 28-l(D inch fell. Much damage was done while the storm lasted. It came at a time when the streets were crowded with afternoon shoppers, most of them without umbrellas. People scurried in every direction to get under cover. Awnings were avoided, as the wind whisked iron fastenings loose and tore the canvas into strips that flapped into the faces of hurrying passers by. Many apprehen sions of a cyclone were felt, but they were groundless, as the weather man says that there was nothing cyclonic in the storm, and that it was simply a thunderstorm, lo cal in its beginning and extent. The first blast broke out windows, up rooted trees, leveled telegraph poles and played havoc generally before people had time to realize what was happening. In the Lombard block, on Washington street, the skylight wa3 blown in, glass falling into the court below with a wild rattle. Fortu nately no one was hurt. A man in the block said that he had to use an umbrella when the rain began, to get from his oflice to another on the same fioor. Windows were broken in the top lloors of the new twelve-story Stevenson building, but ten ants well up toward the roof say that they did not feel any vibration. A young wom an was frightened at the appalling appear ance of the storm frum one of the twelfth story windows, and could hardly be induced to stay m the buiiding. Below' her the dust anji sand surged up Washington street like a howling, muddy river, ob structing all view of the sidewalk for a few moments. This was the first storm of any consequence that has passed over the Stev enson building, and tenants felt even more secure than ever after it was over. At the courthouse one of the heavy oval plate-glass windows on the third story was broken into a thousand, pieces, but no one was hurt. Recently the courthouse yard has been graded, preparatory to sodding. The days of sunny weather had dried the soil. When the storm began it was but a few moments until the basement of the courthouse was filled with a driving bank of sand. A clerk in one of the offices esti mated that eight wagonloads of dm sifted through the windows, w'hleh were closed as soon as possible. A number of ludicrous incidents hap pened. A man driving his sprinkling wagon around the Monument place lost his hat In the gale. A moment afterward the rain fell in torrents. He drove by the Journal office at a fast trot. “It never touched me,” he yelled, turning his face up into the rain. “Whut’s the matter with the sprinkiin cart?” Down at the corner of Illinois and Georgia streets a fruit stand was blown over. Fruit went rolling in every direction. Street gamins who witnessed the occur rence rushed out on the sidewalk after the rolling apples and peaches. The boys were whisked oft their teet and piled up in the gutter. Dripping with water they crawled back to shelter. Four piano covers that a man was carrying into Carlon & Lennox’s place, opposite the Journal building, were whisked out of his hands. He rushed after them. One, a costly silk, wound about a telegraph pole on Pennsylvania street, half-way up to the top. In downtown offices and business places business practi cally ceased. Young men and women crowded to open doorways and windows to gaze out on tha storm. Umbrellas would have been of no use in the face of the gale. Several people were blown off their feet. A colored woman, Linna McClelland, from Jeffersonville, was driving on Market street. The buggy was turned over, she w’as thrown out and was only saved from injury by a man who was himself clutching a telegraph pole. He was near enough to break her fall. The woman was afterward carried into a drug store. She was pretty badly injured. On South Capitol avenue a telegraph pole w r as blowm down near the Allen bicycle factory. Out at the City Hos pital grounds a large tree was uprooted. Branches of trees fell across the Senate avenue car line and blocked traffic for some time. Trees were also blown down on North Meridian street and Talbott avenue. A show’ window at the Badger furniture store, near the Arcade, w'as demolished, as was one in a jewelry store at the same lo cality. The storm seems to have passed over the entire city. In West Indianapolis residents of River avenue, near Gus Rahke’s old re sort. were surprised to see the beer garden blown into the roadway. The belfry of the sehoolhouse on the corner of Reisner and Howard streets was blown dowm. Shea’s Hall, on the “hill,” on Belmont avenue, was badly damaged, a number of window’s being blown out and the building being in jured in other ways. The front of Walter P. Hoss’s hardware store was blown out, the building wrenched around out of posi tion and plastering falling off in great patches. The top of Pray’s livery stable was blown off even with the roof. At the corner of Senate avenue and Garden street the wind “lifted” the roof off a building owned by Win. E. English. In spite of all the damage done, no person was fa.ally In jured, so far as could be learned. CUT BY FALLING GLASS. Nathan Morris, of the firm of Morris, Newberger & Curtis, attorneys In the Com mercial Club building, had his hand quite severely cut by broken glass from a win dow that blew in. Louis Howland, an edi torial writer on the News, was standing with his back to a window when the storm broke. He had his arm up to his head. A window suddenly crashed, a large piece of broken glass failing across the back of his right hand. It was severely cut, the wound extending to an artery. Dr. F. W. Hays at tended to the injured member. An express wagon was standing in the alley back of the Stevenson building. It was blown over, striking against a large plate-glass window' in the rear of the Progress clothing store. The window was shattered. W. F. Christian, who has several farms east of the city, went out into the country after the storm. He said that no damage was done to growing corn, as the wind pre ceded the rain. F. YV. Flanner, who came in from Brightwood, reported that much damage had been done to corn in that vi cinity. There was an amusing incident at the Park Theater corner. A man and woman met close to a telegraph i>ole as the wind began blowing. The woman was about to be carried off her feet when the man grabbed her with one arm. throwing the other arm about the pole. With some diffi culty she obtained a hold on the pole. They swayed buck and forth und were about to be blown away together when two other men who had witnessed the incident rushed to their assistance. The four persons, by hugging the pole between them, managed to keep their feet on the ground. In Irvington the most damage was to trees, which were blown down across streets and sidewalks. On the South Side of the city many roofs were blown away, tin roofs curling up like THE INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1897. the shaving from a carpenter’s plane. There was something of a blockade of traffic on Broadway from fallen trees. CRIPPLED TELEPHONE SERVICE* Break In n Lead Throw* 150 Instru ments Oat of Use. Telephone service in the southeast part of the city was very seriously crippled yes terday afternoon as a result of the storm. The South Delaw’are-street lead was down for quite a distance, five of the poles being broken and twisted out of shape. The cable itself fell acioss the Big Four tracks, where it laid until a train came along and cut it in two, thus cutting out wires leading to 150 telephones. As soon as the storm sub sided a large force of men was set to work repairing the damage. The cable will not be put up again, but the work of placing the wires in underground cables will be rushed as rapidly as possible. The return wire from West Indianapolis was also dam aged considerably. The return lead, made of copper wires, hangs below the upper iron wires. The upper w'ires were not in jured. The return circuit: was torn to pieces and there was considerable inconvenience from crossed lines during the afternoon and night. A large section of a tin roof on In diana avenue was blown across the In diana-aveuue lead, but no serious harm re sulted. A peculiar accident was observed at the telephone exchange on Illinois street. A large trapdoor leading to the roof, which w'eighed forty or fifty pounds, was blown into the street. It grazed a passing cab. Had it fallen another foot or two farther toward the center of the street someone might have been killed. The Postal Telegraph Cable and Western Union Telegraph Companies suffered but little Inconvenience from the storm. The call circuit of the Postal Company was somewhat damaged and interrupted the lo cal call service, but this is easily remedied. The Postal Company has its wires in un derground conduits and therefore escaped. The Western Union had a few wires broken, but they w’ere repaired before dark and business was practically uninterrupted. ♦ STORM AT THE BALL PARK. Shriek** from the Lntlies—A Crahing; Fence Scared the Horse*. It was ladies’ day at the ball grounds and several hundred of them were in the grand stand when the storm came along. As the wind whistled through the rafters of the big stand its fair occupants began to look uneasy, and as it blew harder and harder many of them rose to their feet as if to make a break for the outside. It did not look particularly promising in the street, however, as the wind was blowing great clouds of dirt and dust about and the view was almost obscured. The entrance at the ball grounds afforded shelter for twenty or thirty of those who feared to stay in the stand, and when the wind was at its height there were a number of shrieks and scared exclamations, but, all in ail, tue big crowd behaved with much coolness, considering the conditions, for the storm raged around ten or fifteen minutes befQre it showed any sign of letting up. One man was blown through the big car riage gate up against the fence and had his wrist badly sprained. A street car con ductor was caught up by the wind and twisted around at a pace that made him think a Kansas cyclone had struck In dianapolis. His cap w r ent sailing off to wards the Catholic school, but he was glad to hold himself on earth and did not bother about the cap. Y\ hile the storm was doing its worst about fifty feet of the west fence crashed down and came near causing a stampede among a number of horses that were hitched there. One horse was nearly crushed by the falling fence, but was dragged out in time, while the others were looked after by a number of men near at hand. There was no other damage done at the ball grounds, the grand stand, ticket office and clubhouse weathering the storm without the loss of a splinter. There was much incentive for a panic in the stand while the storm was at its height, the out look being forbidding. Fortunately noth ing about the structure gave way. Had anything of that sort started the crowd there would have been a rush for the street. The crash of the falling fence and the racket made by the wind slamming the carriage gate against the fence made many people nervous, but they didn’t lose their heads. The street cars near at hand af forded shelter for a large number. Lonesomeness of the Main Street. The wildest woodland depth can hardly be as “lonesome” as the street of a great and busy city under some circumstances. At 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon Washing ton street was crowded with a busy stream of people and noisy with the clang of street cars, the rattle of traffic wagons and the clatter of horses’ hoofs. Five minutes later the sudden ominous darkness and the first fitful gust of violent wind cleared the street as if by magic. In another five min utes the wind was blowing a hurricane and the rain w'as swishing around the corners in sheets of spray and filling the street with billows of foam. The street that had pre sented such a busy scene a few r minutes earlier seemed absolutely deserted, except for a stormbound street car that had stopped still, with its passengers huddled into a frightened group, waiting for the storm to pass. There were faces at every window, it is true, some blanched with fear, others watching the play of the storm with a stolid curiosity, and still others reveling in its fury; but these could not be seen by one who looked lengthwise of the street, and the effect of the scene was one of ab solute loneliness and desolation. Meridian Street Blockaded. Many complaints were made by bicycle riders and others who used the roadway of Meridian street last night at the care lessness of property owners who made nr efforts to remove broken trees and limbs from the roadway. Meridian street is al ways a dark roadway owing to the dense shadow- of the la’-ge trees. It was difficult last night to cee branches that had been blown down. In some cases they w-ere even not removed from the sidewalks. The cement w-alk contractors carelessly leave piles of dirt on the street over night, and in a number of instances without red lights. This added to the blockade last night. At the County Institute. TV. A. Bell, of the Indiana School Jour nal, addressed the teachers’ institute yes terday morning. He talked on general school work and was followed by Professor Bergstrom, who presented to the teachers lines of work for mental training. He was of the opinion that children remember more by association than by mere memoriz ing. Professor Juergens then gave an ex ercise in vocal music. In the afternoon Professor Mcßeth concluded his talk on geography. He called particular attention to the physical features of the extreme northern country. He especially spoke of the glacial formation. Professor Berg strom during the afternoon gave a talk on John Amos Oomenius, who was referred to as the father of school methods. Died Under the Chloroform. Mrs. Grace Laferty, a patient at the City Hospital, died yesterday morning, a few minutes after chloroform had been adminis tered to her for the purpose of a physical examination by Dr. L. H. Dunning. The examination was to determine the character of a tumor from which the woman was suf fering. Dr. Dunning was of the opinion that death was duo to cardiac paralysis, following the anesthetic. When it was seen that the patient was sinking the usual re storatives were applied and every effort made to save her. She was thirty-nine years of age and had been married two years. Her husband has been in the county jail since the day after his wife entered the hospital. Mrs. Laferty had been employed as a domestic by a West New York-street family. Riot in a Juvenile Theater. An incipient riot was checked in Hezekiah Clark’s theater, in the rear of the White Ribbon House, Tuesday night. Asa result several boys were in the Police Court yes terday morning. Arthur Meyers was fined for shooting a revolver inside the city lim its. He used blank cartridges. Louis Em ory, a colored boy of fifteen, was sent to the workhouse for throwing stones. The case of David Harris, also charged with throwing stones, was continued. The Mayor Officiated. Mayors of Indiana are authorized to per form marriage rites, under a law passed by the last Legislature. Yesterday Mayor Taggart consented to officiate for the first time under the law-. A1 Austin, son of E. A. Austin, former member of the Board of Works, asked the mayor to officiate at his marriage to Miss Mable Fletcher, daughter of David Fletcher, of Haughvijle, last night. Mayor Taggart consented with some reluctance. )\ hite Cycle Club’s I’lenic.

No goods will be sold. .... B(jsSj gwain & C() iti FIRE BUGS DOWN TOWN * . TWO BLAZES A HALF BLOCK APART OX EAST WASHINGTON STREET. . One at No. 253 and the Other In the Brandon Illoek—Suspicious Circnnistances. It is believed by the fire department that fire bugs were responsible for two fires that occurred on Washington street near the courthouse about 8:35 o’clock last night. Fortunately both w-ere discovered in time to prevent any serious loss. The damage in both cases will probably not exceed S2OO. The first occurred in a portion of a build ing belonging to the Indiana Trust Com pany, at (new) No. 253 East Washington street. The buiiding waa vacant. The ground floor was formerly a restaurant. In the second and third stories families lived until recently. The upper floors are reached by a narrow north-and-south stair way, leading up from the sidew-alk. Mid way back of the narrow hall on the second story was a stairway, facing east and west, that led to the third floor. At either side of the stairway were doors opening into the second-story rooms. The fire burned in the second room from the street and under the stairway. It had made such progress be fore it was discQvered that it burned down through the floor into the ground-floor room. While the firemen were fighting this fire Martin M. Hugg, who has an office in the Brandon block, corner Washington and Del aware streets, happened to go into that building. His main office fronts on Wash ington street. He entered without discov ering anything suspicious, although he de tected an odor of smoke and burning wood. He supposed that this came from the fire half a block further east. On going into his private office, in the rear, however, he happened to glance through a window that opens on the broad stairway leading to the story above. His attention was attracted by a very bright light. Hurrying out into the hall, he saw that fire was burning in a room used by the janitor of the building to store old furniture, brooms, mops, etc. Mr. Hugg knew that John C. Brough, a veteran newspaper man, had a room on that fioor, next door to the lumber room. Mr. Brough is partially helpless with rheu matism and has to walk with a cane arid crutch. Mr. Hugg called to him to warn him. Ho then hurried downstairs and has tened to the other lire. No one paid at tention to his cries that the Brandon block was on fire for some time. Finally, how ever, he was able to find Chief Barrett, who ordered part of the apparatus to the Bran don block, where he went himself to look after the handling of the tire. Lines of hose were carried up the stairway in a jiffy and the fire was goon quenched. Meantime Mr. Brough had been assisted down to a place of safety by two men who were attracted to the building by his shouts for help. Mr. Brough says that he was a little excited on account of his inability to get up and down stairs readily. He believes that the place was set on tire by an incen diary. A half hour before the fire broke but he heard someone go into the janitor’s lumber room, but paid no particular atten tion to the circumstance, as he supposed it was the janitor. The latter’s assistant ap-i pared shortly afterward and said that the janitor left early in the evening. Neither of them had been back until the alarm was sounded. An immense crowd of people, hundreds of them on bicycles, rushed to the court house when Box 82 was pulled. The first fire filled the air with a dense, stiffing smoke that concealed the firemen going up the ladder from the crowds. When Mr. Hugg gave the alarm for the Brandon block fire the crowds broke Into a run in that direction and a number of people narrowly missed being trampled under foot by the department horses. The Brandon block is owned by Judah and Jameson. Most of the third floor is vacant, although Messrs. Mes- senger and Baldwin have apartments near Mr. Brough’s. Neither was in che building at the time. RIG FOUR ROUTE. Y. M. I. Excursion to Lafayette, I ml., and Return, Sunday, Sept. 12, 1897. sl—round trip—sl. Train leaves Indianapolis 7:30 a. m.
