Mr. Gathmanu Explains Why Vegetation i 1'ossible On That Uody. Chicago, Sept 23. Before a company of twenty-rive or more friends and neigh bors, who met at his residence last night, Loup Gathmann exhibited a model of his sectional lens telescope. He aUo ans wered the objections mada by Astrono mers Hale aud Burnham to his an nouncement that he had discovered what seemed to be signs of vegetation on the moon. In answer to tha objection that astronomers with excellent telescopes had never seen a green spot on the moon Mr. Gathmann Sitid: "There can be but two reasons for this fact First, no flrst-class talescopes were in use for making observations the night I saw the spot. Second, if observations were made the telescopes were inferior to mine." Mr. Gathmann said his sectional lens had been examined by Prof. Colbert, who said it had excellent definition and would prove of 'great interest to the whole scientific world. Many eminent engineers had pronounced the sectional lens instrument superior to any instru ment of the same size. "A twenty-inch built-up lens," Mr. Gathmann said, "with clear glasses of even density would be equal iu power to anv telescope that has a forty-inch solid lens." He then spoke of his observation of a green spot on the moon as follows: "Aliout 9 o'clock in the evening of Aug ust 12. in sweeping with my telescope over the face of the moon, I saw a spot of vivid green in the midst of mountains in the valley of S:nus Roris. Greso is a color hitherto unknown to me among the shades of the moou. I thought there might be an error Bomewhere, but after changing the eyepiece six times it was there as a well defined space of green, The idea of it being an error of the telescope is out of the question, because when allowing the moon to pass through the whole field of the glass the strange spot kept stationary on tho moon with every magnifying power used. Seven persons besides myself saw it, and it is not to be supposed that ail of us were color blind. "If Luna haa a flora it must be far dif ferent from ours, because the conditions on the moon are vastly different from ours on earth. Science has not progress ee so far as to know that atmospheric air prevails on the moon. In ftict, the ele ments of the earth's atmosphere are not positively known. To way that vegeta tioa cannot exist on sucli a large planet is to make an assertion which cannot be proven. "Lunar vegetation must be very differ ent from that of tha earth. That Luna should be without animal life I cannot understand. On eirth, in the arctic region, where the cold is intense the year round, they find the polar bear, and the whale and other animals suited to the climate and conditions. If men had never known of the existence of these animals, and if we, common men were asked if such animals could exist there, we would say: 'We do not know. 'But ' most scientific men graduated from our universities would simply say -no,' because scientific men did not know of their existence they would conclude that such animals could not exist That there is vegetation on the moon is highly probable, but it does not follow that the color should b green. The greenish tint observed August 12 may have been a rare exception." In conclusion Mr. Gathmann said he believed the inhabitants of Mars were making signs to the earth, and he thought communication between neighboring planets by means of signals would event ually be established.

They Are Well Satisfied Witli tlie Nomina tion of I lot kin. The nomination of Rev. J. D. BDtkin for congress in the Third district by the j .Populists nas made necessary a change of his dates for other meetings over the state. Between 5 and 9 o'clock last evening Chairman Breidenthal cancelled all of Mr. Botkin's dates outside cf the Third district, and had supplied most of them with other speakers. II. B. Kelly will fill some of them. Mr. Botkin's nomination is received with satisfaction by the Populists about the state house. When Rev. J. D. Botkin went over to the Populists every candidate had been nominated and there was no indications that he could possibly be given a nomi nation during this campaign. Jeff Hud son's resignation, which was altogether unexpected, alone maia it possible for the Populists to honor their new convert. The Beeeiver Iicliarsed. Judge llazen today discharged C. E.

Everything on Deck Had to he Douhlv Lashed. RAIN IX TORRENTS. Lightning, Wind and Rain Made a Terrible Voyage. Passengers Were All Sick and Had a Sorry Time. New York, Sept 28. The Morgan line steamship Eldorado arrived from Jiew Orleans yesterday afternoon, was announced eight hours overdue. Her delay was caused by a struggle with the tornado, into which she ran Sunday night off the southern coast of Florida. Capt. Percy had been warned of the ap proaching previous to leaving pore by a sudden drop in the barometfc , but de cided to chance it. Sunday night the wind hon-led through the rigging at a 50-kuot clip and every thing movable on deck had to be doubiy lashed. The rain fell continously and in torrents. Capt Percy never changed the vessel's course aud at daylight on Mon day he found he had weathered the storm and was on the edge of the tornado. At this point however the wind veered to the northward and followed along iu the wake of the flying steamer. "It kept right along with us, though," said the captain, "and followed us right up to the Highlands. We kept on the verge of it. however, and it simply flirted with us all the way up. The torrents of rain continued to fall throughout it all. I have been iu storms before where the velocity of the wind was as great, but never before experienced suGh a contin uous fall of rain. It was like a cloud burst. "Just before reaching Hatteras the lightning commenced to flash aud streak after streak chased each other across tho sky for 43 hours. Some of the flashes were so cloaethat I thought we should be struck. The passengers had a sorry five d lys trip of it They were housed most of the time and many were sick the greater portion of the passage." Capt Percy says that any steamers whicn were twenty-four hours behind him must have fared very badly, for they would be in the very center of the storm. The Ward line steamer Ceinfugos, which went to sea yesterday afternoon, only ventured as far as the light ship, and then put about and dropped, anchor in Gravesend bay. Encountered Heavy Storms. Savannah, Ga., Sept. 23. The steam ship Kansas City, from Nevv Y'ork, and the Dessong, from Philadelphia, arrived here this moruing. They caught very heavy storms of Hatteras, encoun tering heal winds that retarded them several hours. Ihe masters report pass ing several schooners "hove to" on the way witn water dashing over them. CORBETT IS" INDIGNANT. lie Abuse Sullivan for Hit Accusation of Him. Portland, Me., Sept. 2H. Pugilist Corbett was indignant today when shown the dispatch sent out by John L. Sullivan last night accusing him of beating about the bush. Corbett said iu substance : These people don't cut any ice with me. Sullivan had always more mouth than courage. He is a quitter from the word go aud I do uot want to have anything to do with him. lie is out. of it. but there is one thing if I ever meet Fitzsimmons in the rinr I will make him a better fight than Sullivan did with me. Of course Jake Kilrain, Sullivan and Jackson are sore aud I know it, but it does not make any difference to me. "The Olympic club does not want a fight; they want to make money out of me. Now I am not inclined to humor them until I have proof that Fitz simmons is somewhere in my class, aud this lie can demonstrate by knock ing out O'Donnell. I am making good money now, and am not taking any risks to please any number of soreheads." Corbett became excited as he talked, and plainly showed that he is deeply touched by the numerous stories which have been circulated within the past few hours. TAKEN TO LANSING. SHerift" Burdge Taltes four Topeka Hurfj lars to the State Ienitexitiary. Sheriff Burdge took four burglars to the state penitentiary at Lansing this morning. They are: Fred Tulip, Wm.

With the exception of Preston the convicts are from 21 to 23 years of age and home talent, having grown up with the Fourth street gaug.

There may be' a legal contest over the action of the Democratic congressional committee which on last Tuesday decid ed to put Congressman Jerry Simpson's name on the Democratic ticket There is a question whether the committee had a legal right to do so.

I am not a lawyer, and you had Letter eea the attorney general." ASHES TO ASHES. Tlie Fun pal of t fiarles C. Martin is Large -.ly Attended. The funeral of Charles C.

Associate Counsel Edwin Walker made the closing speech for the prosecution, finishing at the afternoon session. Mr. Erwiu interrupted Mr. Walker once during the speech. The old lawyer had just said that the president of the United States had recoc;ij;zed the neces- ' ssity of compelling the A. R.

While Galesburg is Forming a Civic Federation Like the Big Organization in Chicago. New York, Sept 28. The latest cler gyman to start a moral crusade in Jer sey City is the Rev. James Parker of tho Second United Presbyterian church on Hancock avenue. This gentleman pro poses to start a society which is to be modeled somewhat after the famous Parkhurst society in New York. The Rev. Mr. Parker says, "The so ciety will be non-sectarian and non-partisan, and under no circumstances will it enter politics." Ihe main object will bo to see that the laws in Hudson county and especially those providing for a proper observance of the Sabbath be ob served. The authorities are daily in duced by powerful influences to close their eyes to certain things. We will open their eyes and give them backbone. "When the forces of vice are daily brought to bear on any official and no body opposes tliem, it is natural that he should be swayed and give way to them. Nearly all the ministers iu the county favor the society and will join it. All laymen who are interested in this move ment will be welcomed. Our movement may develop into one as grand as that of which the Rev. Dr. Parkhurst U the head." WANTS A I KDHKATIOX, TOO. ialeburg Makes a Mart Toward a Civic Federation. Galesburo, 111., Sept. 28. Among the citizens here there is much indignation over the laxity shown by the officials during the lust week: while the races were iu progress. From assurances given last spring it was supposed that Manager C. W. Williams would keep the fair grounds clear of all obnoxious features. It was on this condition that many busi ness men subscribed toward the fund to secure Mr. Williams' track. Eight or ten gambling room.3 indiffer ent parts of the city were opened aud fitted with parapharnalia for all . well knovvn games. They were owned by gamblers from Chicago, Peoria and oth er cities. Day and night they were run openly without guards at the doors. In a large room off the office of a leading uptown hotel pools were sold openly. At the fair grounds a wheel of fortune with eight tables was run in the space under the amphitheater. Iu addition to the gamblers, pick-pockets, thieves aud dis reputable women swarmed the streets. A Chicago detective here on duty said it seemed to him as if every pick-pocket in Chicago was :n Galesburg. Some attempt was made to capture the thieved. The officers seemed unwilling tn raid any of the gambling houses, so Godfrey Haas, secretary of the Young Men's Christian association, swore out warrants and they were placed in the hands of the sheriff to serve. Only one place was raided. City officials are said to have informed the others that they had to close. Outside of the one raid no arrests were made. One of the sights on tho streets Saturday was a dray loaded with gambling implements on the way to the freight house. The gamblers pro fess great indignation over this breach of faith, and claim that they came here on an understanding in black and white that they should not be molested. An investigation of the case is now in prog ress and sensational disclosures are ex pected. A start has been made toward forming a Civic Federation for the en forcement of the law.

Two men practically govern our police force because they secured the places for the police commissioners. The people pay taxes to uphold a police force which is run in the interests of a few men who have a business interest that must not be affected by police, interference. I have been looking up some of the jobbery connected with our city government and I am astounded.

A Prize Fljjlit Two Police Station Itiock From the There was a pnza light last night in a basement within two blocks of the police station. Of course the police or the county authorities did not know any thing about it and an anxious public is patiently waiting to hear of arrests. This fight was clearly within the jurisdiction of the police department. The principals were Lon Bennett, a colored fighter from Junction City and a prize tighter named Cavanaugh frmn Kansas City. All the rutlians from all over Kansas and Missouri gather here to fight because it is tha only place where such things are permitted. In Kansas City they are promptly arrexted.- The fight is described as being a vicious one. The colored man had everything his own way and would have easily put Cavanaugh out if they had fought to a finish, but the fight was declared a draw at the end of six rounds and a purse of a little mora than $20 was divided between tlie men. There wore about thirty Tope S a 'Vports ' who witnessed the tight. It was originally intended to havo the men meet tonight, and everything ws arranged accordiujrly, but the announce ment in last night's Jot rnai. that thn fight was to take place and cnlliug the attention of the oilicials to the fact, whs the cause of it being brought off last night Both men said they were anxious to get out of town, and the money will enable them to do that Two young cigarmakera had planned a fight to come off within a day or two, but they have temporarily abandoned the meeting "until things quiet down," as they express it. Everything is arranged for the biggest fight of the season to take place on Sun day. Of course County Attorney Safford is not expected to know anything Hbout any of these disgraceful violations of the law. Chief Lindsey can now put some of his men to work on last night's light, which took place in the shadow of the police statiou. If County Attorney Saf ford "can-t" perhaps Chief Lindsey can be more successful in (securing evider.co now that ho has the opportunity. It is idle to believe that tho ollieera of the law don't know about these prize fights. It is just as easy for them to find out as it is for the State Journal. Tho only reason why they don't ferret out this out fit is because they don't want to. REPU BLICAN S EXCITE I).
