The delegates to the Interna. jr tlonal Conforonoo mar as well take It tor i grantod. without seeking a further test of the '1 meteorological capacity ot tho metropolis, that a perfeot type t a dr in almost any ot tho world's great capitals ean bo produced here at ! short notice. Hesrlr ail th gentlemen ot tho party took ;. earrisgos at 10K A. M.. and, escorted by a 1 platoon ot mounted police, drove to the Nor- ,f mal College at Blxty-elghth stroot and Park , avenue. President J. Edward Blmmons of tho I Board of Education and the Professors ot tho I Institution thero weloomed them. They were , eonductod first to tho larse hall ot tho upper department whoro 1,700 of the young women assembled. The sight In Itself was an lusplr- Ins one, and It awoko tho enthusiasm ot tho entire delegation. Many of tho students woro I small American flags pinned upon their dresses, and tho national colors wen freely I displayed upon desk and walls. Tho visitors listened to tho usual morning 1 eaerolws end singingofpatrlotio songs. Then was given a series of brief recitations in Eng- lith. German. French, latin, and Spanish by various young ladles, the selootlojas being from . the words ot patriotio loaders In each nation. The SpanUh address, given by a young woman of Spanish descent, tfas especially appreciated br the visitors, and It was heartily applauded. One ot the English selections recited was an extract from Andrew Carnealo's " Triumphant Democracy." Mr. Carnegie himself was upon j the platform, and when tho rouna lady had I . taken ber soothe jumped to his feet and sold 1 with deep foellng: , , H - Mr. President, permit mo to. say that this Is T the proudest moment of my life. That any words of mlno should be thought worthy of being taught in tho Now York Normal College . h ithe grandest compliment thatoould bo paid The students save Mr. Oornegto art enthu- rflwtiq round of applause. Resident Simmons In a brief eddross cx- I plalnod to the young women iho. origin and $ purpose of the International Conference, and assured thorn that their visitors comprised the most dlsUnguianoa body ot mon who over sat upon the platform ot tho ooUpgo. For the benefit oi th delegates ho made a forcible demonstration ot too scope and plan of tho American public school system as7 illustrated, lathe Institution before thorn. A response to Mr, Bimmons'a remarks was Sade by Nlcanor Bolet Porozo, tho Venezuelan inlstor. I must eayoneo more." he said, "that I admire tho marvellous lnaonulty of the American people. Wohave seen too natural wonders of your groat country, but our admi- ration rises to a higher point when we see hour your people Jiavo developed In humanity new forces for the realization oi great things In I civilization, aoro than all you novo discovered II that woman ios more than halt: that she has I a oleor lnteUlgonee that Is endowed with that ' -' divine light hioh God. put Into the human i soul, and you hove called that almost unknown being to net share of honor asSUi)rty. -An- ,;-.. cient nstiona may ba prond that thny nave dla, '' covered new countries. You have surpassed ;' them, because you have discovered aaow force V In humanity, yen have completed man upon rti the globe. A1 bave discovered tho real pur- " pose of God In humanity.' Presldenf Simmons called up Mr. Oarntoie i. again, and bo remarked the significance of tho fact that the delegates from the othor Ameri cas nil represented republics now. The allu sion brought out loud acclamations from the visitors and tho enure school. " They . Jve ! been shown all tho wonders of our land." con- f tlnuod Mr. Carnegioi " but these havo all Men ; but tho outward signs ot Our power. They 1 havo come here to see the cause of It alL , ! BSIgoor Oaamono, the Minister from Ecuador, ; made n brlpf .address Of acknowledgment la 1 Bponlsh. and then the visitors wero conducted H to the othor end ot the building, where 1,100 H children In tho kindergarten and primary do- ' partments oasembled. The exercises In that department wero of oven greater Interest than r those in the .upper grade. It was the poet VVblttlera birthday, and it is the custom to ob serve this and similar occasions by appropri ate literary exercises. The little ones were wonderiolly intelligent and well trained. Pros ldcnt SlmmonB cut short the regular order of exerqises. and Insteaa tested tho knowledge of the cblldran by calling at random for Informa tion abont the gentle Quaker poet. The chil dren told him promptly not only the names of the poet's principal works, but on being asked ; recited selection after selection from" Bnow- Kflnd.' "Mand fuller, "'Barefoot Boy," ''Freedom In Brazil." Ac Tho mention of the last named poem called forth en entbuslastlo demonstration from the Brazilian delegates .1 and their colleagues. . (Senator Henderson and Beflor Zecarro spoke briefly to the children, the latter declaring that ho undorutood now the sourceof the happiness and prosperity of America. Nothing which he had seen had given htm such pleasure and profit as this visit. ' On leaving tho room tho visitors wero treated to a genuine surprise, and one whicn most In evitably Impress Itsolf upon the minds ot them all beyond effacing. Two thousand young women hod assembled in the long corridor ; etrotchlng through the oollego building to give tho visitors an ovation such asonlyontbuel- astlo girls can give. The Tiarty ran the gauntlet of a great tumult of merry, greetings, hand shakings, flag waving, and cheers. Everybody In the party became Infected with the merry spirit of tbo occasion and responded with jolly greetings. Andrew Carnegie fairly lost his heart upon the spot In spite of the tact I that his wife was with him, . . . . " Girls." he exclaimed, " I'd like to stop and kiss ovory one of you." . "Oh, oh. oh." came In a delighted eborus, and a hundred roguish eyes Hashed him n i merry aocoptancs ot the challonco. Borne ot J-. the visitors who do not speak English were U nltogother captivated by the demonstration. I They could find no way of expressing their 1 toolings save In tbo universal sign language, 11 and that they.employed vigorously. Their en- f tbuslasm aulminated In their kissing their flniror tips to the girls to right and to left, and. If the truth must be told, the salute was not nnroturued. Tho party next visited the Metropolitan Mu- , eeum of Art. whero seeral ladles from the bo- tot joined them. President. Henry O. Mar- nuand and Messrs. Dodge. Vanderbllt, Mills, Wales, and others of the trustees weloomed them. Lunch was servod In tho library, and the party proceeded next to the Museum of Natural History. President Jesnp and several of tho trustees ontortalnod the delegates tor on hour or more, and then they returned to tlio hotel. Onthowny down town many stopped for a few moments at the Cathedra), where Archbishop Corrlgan weloomed them. The ovsnt of tbo day, and. Indeed, the oc casion which the soolety end ot town has been preparing for with great elaboration for many (lays, was the ladles' reception, tendered by the union Lenguo Club, at Its club house on Tblrty.tiluth street. Tho architectural beau ties of tho homo of the club wero enhanced by magniflcont dvcorntlons. drawn from the i rlchoxt private treasurlusof art. statuary, tapes- trio, banner?, rugs, unl o roll I Us In tho nholo metropolis.

The costumes of the ladles wero rich and varied, ranging from slmplq evening dress to full ball room oostume. Military and naval officers appenred In full dross uniform. Whllo at tho holght of the reception about 1.000 persons were present the crush was at no time oppressive, and there was nothing to mar any one's full enjoyment ot the dazzling beauties ot the occasion. There were no formalities during the entire evening. The visiting delogntos were mado to feel informally at homo, and they mingled with the gonerat throng without exciting any of the curiosity which has been a most embarrassing feature ot their reoeptipn by the social qlroles of ono or two chips which they have visited. At abont 11 o'clook they partook ot refresh ments with tho members of the Beoeptlon Com mittee In a separate lunch room. Beginning at 11 o'olock.ond continuing until a late hour there was danolng In the largo mooting hall. Those who did not join In this feature ot the festivities to their departure, for the most. part, at midnight .Mr. Blaine .and many of the Fan-American delegates withdrew before that hour. The arrangements for tho reception and the execution of them were per feot In all details, and tho union League may congratulate itself en making the greatest social success in its history.

Not tho least Interesting elomont in tho discussion of "la grippe' yesterday was the question whether it would bo recognized In its milder forms by physicians, Tho disagree ment if suoh It may bo termod, between Dr. Edson of tbe Board of Health and Dr. Lell mann, the family phystolan of the Klamroths,' as to whether the troublo that has been afnlot ing them Is or is not tbo influenza, suoh as has ben raging In Europe, makes it seem proba ble that In diagnosing the lass violent cases physlolans will be apt to disagree. One of Mr. Elamroth's sons, who has had a mild attack, said yesterday that he did not think tho all-, mentwas anything more than a severe cold. Dr. Lellmann waslthoroughly convincod. how ever, that his patients wero Buffeting with tho Busslan Influenza. "It Is absurd," ho said, "to say that theso are nothing but severo colds or catarrh. Tho Indications and tho phenomena attending them prove this to bo Impossible. A cold comos gradually, reaches Its highest state, and thon dlmtnlshos in severity also gradually. Even when the cold comes on vory gradually, one feels somo tangible symptom beforehand. It may bo only a slight chill or a feoltng that ono is not in the very bost condition; but thero Is always something. Now In these casos it was different 'Tho first one of them, that of tho young lady who had recolved a letter from Berlin the day before aho was seized, was a marked example ot what I havo sold, Bho arose one morning and went out to moke 0 visit Bho says that she was not foellng very bright in tho morning, but did not think tbat she was Hi at all. While at tbo houso ot her friend she was seized suddonly with an attaok of vertigo. This camo upon her like a flash. Bho is not the sort ot woman who gives In easily to a physical ailment and was therefore determined to flgbt off the Inclina tion to faint; but try as she would aho could not overcome it and presently had to Ho down on a fiofo. Bho remained there until afternoon f,na then became so much worse that she bad 0 go home. Berero pains In the head followed, accompanied byjutter prostration of spirits as well as body, .with Elfrlda, tho flf toon-year-old daughter, the samo thing bappenod. Tho ?ittack waa entirely unexpected and very severe or Iho time being, llor temperature cbangod with remarkable rapidity. And hero Is, a point that Is of Importance In considering this sub Jeot In her oaso there were very few ot tho catarrhal symptoms which always aocompany a cold when there is high fever. Tho f over In herlcaeo, therefore, could not be laid to the ordinary cold. What is moro. In tho oaso of a cola tho fovor comes perhaps rapidly but always goes gradually. In this case as in tho others, her temperature obanged In ono day from 100 to 69. Ono of the sons caught tho thing In even a more sudden manner. lie works in a law office and was joking with somo of the other persons there about the alleged induenea. when be was suddenly strlokon down and had to go right home. All of the pa tients are now doing much better, and I think OwywlfiboellrightTnadnyortwo." Dr. Lollmannmade the ostonlshlngstatemont that sneezing did not necessarily accompany a dose of the "grip." The outward symp toms, he sold, wsre not always very severe. The faoo was llkoly to bo swollen. There was likely to be more or less oatarrh, but more par ticularly the eyes wero llkelr to lose tnelr brightness. The symptoms, as far as the pa tient himself was ooncerned. were severe pains in the head and depression. Dr. Lollmann was sure that this disease hod oqme from Kuropo, and was not of native growth,. Bq thought it i'dry probable tbat it had existed in milder orms tor some time, and. after having sproad o spmeestent had Anally drawn attention to tself. lie hod no doubt that thore woro a good many other cases where the patlonts them-eolvea-and'tho physicians Were not really Iiwaro of tho nature of the complaint While a eterr instance tho patient, so far as is :nown, has recovered. Dr. Lellmann said there was danger. It the patient was Imprudent, that bronchitis would follow. One of Mr. Elam roth's sons thought himself fully recovered, having had only a slight attack, and went out into tns damp air. and tho result was a re lapse. The older Miss Klamrotb also Imagined herself fully recovered, but was again seized. Tho Board ot Health did not disouss tho likelihood of the complaint becoming epidemic for the reason that Dr. Edson waa practically convinced to tho contrary, A report on the cases In the Slamroth family was submitted to Dr. Edson. as Chief oftho Bureau ot Con tagious Diseases, by Dr. Ramon Oulteras, Tho report .rather strengthens Dr. Edson's pre viously formod opinion.

Dr. Edson said yesterday that not a single new case had beqn reported to him, but thai he thought tbo action of Dr. Lollmann in, report ing tbo Klamrotb cases would result in tho sendlngln ofa great many similar reports. "Dr. Lellmann. however, did right, nnd I commond bis action oven though I cannot at present endorse bis diagnosis. Wecnnnot yet say tbat what is termed ' la grlpne,' the con tagious influenza of Busslan origin, has ap peared here. There Is not much difference In thecharaoterlstlos In the coses reported, so far as I nave learned, and those of ordinary sevore colds In tbe head. Suoh cases occur evory winter, so tar as symptoms go. They are bad colds. These, as well as common Influenza, nro In my opinion contagious.

A gloztor on tho root of tho Lake Shore Hallway freight houses was al most lnolnerated by eleotrlo wires to-day. He was Robert B. Dalton. and he was measuring the glass for a skylight when ono ot his part ners, noticing something wrong, rushed over to him and found him lying across two eloctrlo light wires, dead. Then followed one of tbo most awful and sickening sights over seen In To ledo. Its counterpart can only bo found In tho terrible death of Lineman Fcoks in Now York sovcral weeks ago. A largo crowd soon collected on the root about the man, but no one dared to ' uch him whllo tho doadly current had Its awful bold upon tho body. He was killed Instantly. All tbo spectators could do was to stand by, hor ror strlckon, and watch tho work ot tbe death dealing fluid. Ono young man started to lilt his dead comrade, but was prevented by some cooler men ot the party. It would havo been a useless risk, and all foarod that any such at tempt would only add another victim. In about a half hour the circuit was out off and tbo body removed from tbo wires. Tho man lay on his back and the two wiros passed undor him, the current all tho while passing through tho body. At tbo points ot contact a bright blue flame would shoot from tbo body and soorch the clothing. Tho, face turnod blaok and bluo. Bright flashes darted fiom his 1 bowswbero the olothlng hud burned anay, and as tbo flesh withered tho sickening smoke droo tho spectators away, Tho bravest blanched at the terrible sight When the current was finally cut oil. what wan iett of tho body was taken down. and. after bo ng viewed by the Coroner, wai removed to nn undertaker's. It Is supposed tbat Dalton inadvertantly touched ono of tho wires while at his work, or that he slipped on tho wot roof and fell on tho wires In the position In which ho was found. It uas an alternating current In tbe Incandescent sys tem. The wires were very Iraproporly pro tected by an inferior quality ot insulation, and eveu this was cracked and almost worn out A representative of tbo Toledo Electrio Company admitted that the wires woro poor, but said tt was not supposed that persons would be llkoly to como In contaot with them at this placo. He said that tbo mon had been warnod to keep away from thorn only a few wcekn ago. The city electrician appeared beforo tbe Counall, and said that the wires used by tlio Toledo Electrio Company wore extremely dan- 601008, and tried to seouro legislation oomool ng them to put up wires with proper Insula tion, but no action was taken. The dead man's homo was In Elkhart, Indiana, where ho leaves a wife and one child. Ho was 40 years old. Ho was In the employ of the Lake Shore Hallway Company, and had never had experience with electrio wires. TUB WOMAN GOT XBB BETTABD.
