The second Pnttl concert given yesterday

were In the house than it bad ever held before.
Fvery aisle and every foot of standing room In
the balconies was occupied, whllo below men
and women were packed, like herrings in a
box. Into the rooms at tho sldo of tho parquet,
and the aid of policemen was sought by tho
nearly distracted ushers to keep uuruly pcr

and front blocking up tho entrances.

The complicated case of Dr. Briggs.the Union
Ths'ologlfcal tiomlnary. nnd the General As
sembly ot the Presbyterian Church came up
again yesterday for a settlement but no set
tlement was arrived at, and after flvo hours of
conference and lintd wrostllng with the mat
ter; the caso was adjourned until to-day.
The questions at Issno are 'important both
to Union Seminary and to tho whole Presby
terian Church, and the outcome Is awaited
wllli Intense Interest by Presbyterians all over
the country. The questions Involve the future
relation ot tho seminary to tho Presbyterian
Church and. It Is thought by many Presby
terians, even the continuance of any relations
at all between the two.
As Is well known, tho General Assembly,
claiming n veto power over appointments of
professors In the seminary, by virtue, of an
agrcemont with the somlnary. vetoed the ap
pointment of Dr. Brlggstotho chair of lllbll
eal theology. Tho seminary refused to ac
knowledge the right of the (lonernl Assembly
to oto the appointment, contend ing.t hat It was
a transier, nnd not a new appointment. The
lieneral Assembly appointed a committee to
conferwlth the dliectors ol Union Hemlnary
with a view of dotermlninc Just what the com
pact tnoant and what tho relations between
the Assembly and tho seminary were. Dr.
Patton. President of I'rincoton University, Is
Chairman of the committee. ,,
Two conferences between the two bodies
were held last October, but no settlement was
urilvod at. Finally Dr. Patton's committee
made certain propositions which hve since
been under consideration by the seminary di
rectors. A conforeneo was arranged for J
o'clock yesterday alternoon In the seminary.
All the members of the Board of Directors. In
cluding tho President, Dr.Butlor.who Is over W.
wero present Ho also were tho members of tho
eommltteo ot theUoneral Assembly. The eon
foronce lasted until 0 o'elook, and during that
time Dr. Patton's commlttoe several times ad
journed to another room to oonfer among
themselves. At six o'clock there wer no signs
of an agreement and the conference was ad

nnd driven out of Both. They woro hurried
westward to Clean Point then tho head of

Helm was then discovered by Lucas and Ills
wifo among the kidnappers. There was no
lint boat ready at the point to take tho fam

Hiid Lucas began proceedings against him on
tho charm- ot kidnapping, nnd it is tho only
case of its kind ou record in tho criminal his

tho charge, but do not show what punishment
was Indicted upon him. Old residents ot the
county sny that ho was fined and imprisoned.
Ho died a town pauper some years later.
Marcus F. Lucas was ono of the children kid
napped, and saved from a llfo of slavery In tho
Houih by the escape of his father and mother
from Holm at Olean Point Ho was then only
M years old. but lias a distinct recollection of

The Erection or a Frelclit f.oeomottTe In

A remarkable foat of rapid work In looomo
ttve building, which. It la snld. eclipses any
previous performance ot a like nature In the
history ot mechanics. Is described In interest
ing detail by London Enginrrring. It was the
erection, in loss than ten working hours, from
tho driving ot tho first pin and rivet to the ap
plication of the lat coat, of varnish, of a
htandnrd freight locomotive of tho six-coupled
type, weighing more than thirty-seven tons
and able to haul a load of 000 tons. Tlio workwas
doneat the Stratford works of the Groat Enstorn
Hallway of England last month. Tho work thnt
held tho rucord until last month was tho erec

Pennsylvania Bailway Company, of a freight
locomotiveofthofour-eouplod typo In 10 hours
fiO minutes. It Is said that it It Is not fair to
compare Hie latter performance with the
former, because the frames had been erected,
with nil their cross connections, the cylinders
fixed, tlm motion parr set. mid Hie crosshead.
the wnlghbai. und othor parts put in Place.
In the recent work at Ktratlord absolutely
not n stroke of the work of erection iiad been
begun. The various parts of the locomotive,
as made to standard unugo and dimension",
wero gathered together, but not a rivet wns In
place, nor wore any two pieces together.
The start was made nt 0:03 A. M nnd eleven
minutes afterward tho first rivet was put into
the frames. The olinderc were sot und fixed
In one hour ami hoventeen minute. Pour
hours and seventeen minutes from the start
the boiler wns In place, und an hour nnd
twonty minutes later tho engine was wheeled.
The wheels wore supplied just as they left the
wheol shops, and thn eccentrio sheaves had to
be fixed, and the axle boxes, connecting rod,
nnd coupling-rod binssos tltted by tlieerectors.
r.lght hours and twenty-two minutos from
tho start the valve Hotting was com
pleted, aud tho painting of tho engine
vns commenced lllieeii minutes later, lu
uiuo hours and forty-suveri minutes from
tlio Mart Hie oiigino nnd tender were
completed In every detail. Ono hundred mid
thirl v-r-oven men were ouipioynl in building
tho locomotive, divided ns follows: On the en

and rivet boys. Ac 44; on the tender. O'J: lit

The work was done In seven hours of one
day with a recois for dinner, und 'i hours nnd
forry-seven minutes of tho following morning.

Forecaster Dunn, on a warm day recently,
wnsenllod (o tho telephone to listen to tills
message: "lam a wine Impeller. Iluivean
order from Montana for a iiuantltv of cham

will remain warm enough to make it safe to

"Piom present iinlluitloiis I Miould advise

will reach Itn destination before i'rlday, Whllo
there is no cold wave In night tlio vventhur out

When Mr. Dunn returned to his dek he
said: "I saved that mni: a good many dollnis

Whoever Imagines that the Signal Service

A rarealat Beaeol to ha Organised y the iT-i
Boston Bohool Board. 'IllH
Bosto. Jan. 20. Tho olty of Boston it about fl
to try ft new and novel method ot disciplining ' HJfl
refractory school children. Although Boston 'H
well deserves the reputation for oulture and '-'Tlfll
superiority In Intellectual attainments which Tljfl
her people enjoy. It must be confessed that '11
some ot her school children about a hundred Lefl
out of a total ot C5,19." who attend publla ilH
schools-will "hook Jack" every little while. i
Some ore Incorrlglblo truants, and they have )&--!
been disciplined in the Truant School at Deer ,:'! lfl
island, the city's dumping ground fordrunk- j ID
nrds and criminals whose offonoes are termod 5
misdemeanors. The prisoners are assorted ao- ' lH
eotdlng to the nature of the orlraes for which I M
they have been committed, and Ihe truants M
are classed with vicious and Immoral young t lH
reprobates who have been sent to the Reform
Bohool as a punishment for petty crimes. j !
This association ot mischievous boys with liH
really bad boys has worried the members ot f
the Bohool Board, who eonld see la It only a !(-!
great and permanent Injury to the'rouageters. j H
whose only offenoe was. perehanoe, a greater i B
fondness for baseballathan for oomplejt frao- !l H
tlons. The Influence was all one-sided. Tha i
School Board needed no statistics to eonvlnoa llfH
them that the sohoolboy's oharaoter was ltfl
smirched by his association with the criminal- $!!
ot Deer Island, that his solf-respoot was lost - kbH
and that his downward course was almost eer-
tain to follow his reloase. The Judges hosU i
tate to send tho mischievous youngsters to lll
the Hand, nnd the boys are smart enough to H
see the advantage which the situation holds lH
out to them. A 11
B-jt thero Is to be no more temporising. H
Trunnoy Is to be eliminated from Boston ' H
schools nn far as it Is possible to secure sueh m H
result The boy who "hooks jack" Is to be i H
punished, but In such a mannor that the pun- H
Ishment will bear good fruit InBtoad of bad. H
UeIom the boy Is absolutely depraved he will H
bn bonofltod by his stay nt the Truant Bohool. ' B
Ho will be surrounded by Influences that will y H
tend to make a man ot him Instead of ft erlm- H
Inal. Tho now institution Is to bo a parental B
school to prevent crime, and not a reform J H
school to ouro crime. The name "Parental ', H
Bohool " Is. In itelf, auggostlvo of the char- 'Ji H
actor ot tho Institution. It is to bo a home for . B
the boy whero ho will bo under absolute) . BJ
authority and. at tho snmotlmo. his surround- B
logs will bo elevattntf. Almost every out- ' B
ward form ot restraint la to bo abolished. . 3B
There will bo no bolted doors and grated '
windows: no guards to remind the boys con- t'.DI
tlnunlly thnt they are In prison. $H
Tho Parental School Is to be on the oottage ip BJ
system, which has been triod so suocessfully iitB
In connection with othor publto institutions. '1H
A tract of land is to bo purchased In an outly- 'nH
ing part of the city on which are to be ereoted '11
two largo buildings and as many cottages aa )aH
tho necessities may roan Ire The School 'f1B
Bonrd has In mind an estato of about eight 'Ifjl
acres in area In tho extreme wostern part ot jiltH
tho city, on tho Cliarloa Blver. near the Ded- .Ufl
hum lino. It is about olght miles from tha 7 flea
City Hall. The section is the country dlstrlot liflea
of the city, and is built upon so little that all IkI
tho temptations and lnllueneesot city life are 13I
distnnt. SH
lf tlio plan be approved by the Mayor and ;ilH
tlio edy Oovornntent and It is believed thnt ,8i
there will bo no furthor opposition to It build- ;SIH
liiirlstobo begun ns soon us the nooeBsary ni
led tapois unwound. Tho plan aa now draft oil IjH
calls ior in expenditure of S12.r.000. Tho SH
largot building is to bn ot brick, called the cen- fl
tral admin istratlon building, for the onioes and 1tI
rooms of tho Superintendent and the assist- W-i
nnt nnd the kitchon. laundry. Ac It is to be Jf, II
largo enough to accommodate 200 boys, al- itWi
though the nverago number at the Truant !di
bchool hns been only nbout 100. lt!Ei
The other large building is also to be ot 'iiffH
brick fortheschoolroomt. and workshop. The mCM
committee recommend tour schoolrooms. lit Brail
oacli ;J'x8, thus ullowing classlOcaUon. Tbe '9i
workshop Is to occupy most of one floor and in !H
to bo tltted up as a complete manual training j H
school. In the building Is to be a small halt l!?U-i
tor general exercises. isri
Grouped around the two central buildings ttM
nro to bo the cottagos which are to be used aa fi gj-'g
dormitortos. By the cottage ptan. so called. iHi
the boys can be graded better according to st1l
ago. character, etc. The more obstinate boys ,! H
ar not to be placed with those lesB forward In ifi
wrongdoing, and it i expected that better re- ".ii
aiilts may be obtained thereby than by mass- JJBM
lug the boys in one large building. Eaoh cot plH
tngncan accommodate about thirty boys, and 'fjjH
eacti little homo is to iiave Its own house- ;1?H
keeper and n teacher. It has not been de- I'rtH
rlded yet whether the boys will eat in a com- At MM
mon dining room, or whether each cottage la V;UM
to have its own room supplied with food to bo 11 wM
cooked In ono kitchon and carried by the boys vl
to the buildings. BVi
Thn boys will do all the work at the Instltu- i'&jri
lion. Indoors, and out of doors. There will be fiVM
enough land to supply the sohool with vege- rafti-i
tablo". nnd tho boys will thus get a praouoal liSiiH
knowledge of farm work as well as of the varl- iWfl
ous lu unches of mechanical work which mar IkaB
be taught in the' manual training School. R-
There will bo plenty of hard work, and no 9hH
shirking will bo allowed. While the proiectors fii
of Hie schonio lntenjl that tha boys shall have iKoH
ngood home, they tlo not intend that It shall 'fjfljfl
bo so attractive that the youngsters will play IWfM
truant for tho sole purposo of bolng sent to isH
tlm institution. Tliuio will be no lux- iltpJI
tiries to tempt thorn. The school life ?S8I
i to bo a penalty and not a reward. tVPW
Hard, unceasing work ot body and cKfli
mind is to be reuulred, and up to thn limit of ISiM
tlm strength ot the bovs from the minute they Vwrfl
enter, it is tho purposo of the School Board Inimi
that the boya shall look to tho coming with J'VmJ
dread, and to tho dischargo with pleasure: f.ffljJI
tliat they shall carry a report to their regular 5S3W
schools that may deter other boys from going (Wifh
astray. Jt is hoped that the school will thus (jfi'l
nerve as a proventivoof evil; that it will suvo .SS fal'v
hoys who ure commencing to go wrong, and -rrirK
mn-nthnm solf-rebpoctlng citizens. To this SiVfeL
nd tho boys will, In a measure, be put upon t'ras'
theirhonor. Tliero will be neither fences, nor s'-VJ-i-i
liars, nor bolts. Kxpurienco has shown thnt fsSviT?
that is the best way to prevent such boys from ?"!!
running away. They aro to bo saved by being Pit'fvi
trusted to thut extent iffiKS
The system ot truant Industrial schools has t'itfr
