Over Two Hundred Clerk* Undergo the Ordeal To-day* At an early hour this morning the steps of the High school, on O street, between 6th and 7th northwest, were crowded with anxious clerks from the Surgeon General's Office, War Depart ment, awaiting their examination by the Civil Service Commission. When 9 o'clock came the two large "study halls" on the first floor were comfort ably filled. In one room were 113 of the clerics of class one, and In the other were the remainder, 39, of that class, and all of the $1,000 class, 60 In number. Thus 212 were In attendance. No ladles were present. Of those who should have re ported 13 were missing. According to the rules of the commission each clerk first lllled out a blank, giving his name, resi dence, class, place ot appointment, Ac-., which was then placed In an envelope and sealed, with a dls tlLgulshlng number on the outside. The clerk signs all of his papers by this number. The sub jects of to-day's examination were, first, penman ship, ortnography, punctuation, &c.; second, arithmetic; third, correction of false syntax; fourth, letter writing; firth, office questions. The examination to-day will finish up tlie surgeon General's Office. 1'he clerks will get through be tween 2 and 4 o'clock to-day. In one ot the rooms a clerk was discovered whose name did not appear on the examiners' list. Upon Investigation It was found that he was merely a temporary appointee, and consequently not In cluded in the requirements. On being asked to leave he tried to gel hold of the questions, but was peremptorily refused. Then he asked for a list of the subjects, and he fared no better. At last he left, grumbling at the meanness of men. A vendor of fans, calculating on a perspiring crowd, had stationed himself at the doors with a large stock of "palms." Thanks to Gen. Greeley and the cold wave the thermometer did not justify his expectations, and the speculator retreated. The examination of the clerks of the Adjutant Gen eral's Office will take place In about a week. The examinations of clerks In the Adjutant General's office, It was stated at the Civil service rooms to-<lay, will take place next week. The clerks of the second and third class will be ex amined Monday. Clerks ot other grades will | probably be examined Wednesday. This will finish all of the large bureaus of the War Deparu menu A British Vessel Seized* THE REVENUE CUTTER RUSH MAKES TWO CAPITEES IN ALASKA SEALING WATERS. By the Alaska Commercial Co.'s steamer Dora, which came to San Francisco Monday from Oun alaska, information Is received of the seizure of two vessels for sealing within the limits prescribed by the United States Government. The crafts are an American schooner, challenge, of 30 tons, from Seattle, and the British steam schooner Annie Beck, hailing from Victoria. Both seizures were made by the United Slates revenue cutter Richard Rush, and the vessels and crews were sent on to Sitka. The Challenge was taken July 1 In Ekeston, Oneksion Islands, when overhauled by the Rush. No seals were to be seen, but there was blood on deck, and other evidences that the crew had been engaged In seal ing. The Rush took charge ot her, In spite of the protest of the captain, who urged that every skin that he had was obtained In the open waters of the Paclilc. The rush took the prizes to Oun alaska. Two days later the Annie Peck was seized near St. George, which Is not far from Ounalasko. As In the case oi the Challenge there was blood on deck, and the crew appeared as If they had been hard at It. Her captain sent up a pro test, and threatened to seek redress from the British government. He was likewise sent off to Sitka, where he as weil as the American captain will be tried. When the Dora departed from Ounalaska there was a fleet of twenty sealers hovering off Sanack under the espionage of the Rush. Others were reported at U nge, and the officers of the Rush were In need of assistance. The Bear has gone to Arctic waters. Obio Democrats. Q088IP AS TO THE OUTCOME OF THE CONVENTION WHICH MEETS TO-MORROW. The Ohio State Democratic Convention will as semble at Cleveland to-morrow morning. Ex-Sen ator Thurman having declined to be a candidate, It is expected that the choice of the convention will fall upon one of the three Congressmen, Thos. G. Powell, M. A. Foran or J. G. Campbell. Foran has gone to Duluth. and his candidacy Is ln tne hands of his friends, who are leaving no stone un turned to improve his prospects. The nomina tions to be made are for the office of governor, lieutenant governor, two Judges of the State Su preme Court, state auditor and treasurer, attorney-general and one member of the I board of public works. The eighty-eight counties will be represented by six hundred and fltty-elght delegates, and nearly that number of alternates will also be In attendance. For minor offices there is the usual avalanche of candidates, and the un expected development of the Foran boom Is likely to create some animated dickering and wire-pulling to-day. Mr. Blaine in Scotland. INVITED TO THE LIBERAL BANQUET TO THE PARNEL LITES?OUT IN THE FOUR-IN-HAND. Mr. Blaine has been pressed to attend the Par nell banquet at London to-morrow. The letter In viting him to attend Is signed by seventy-three Gladstonlan members.

Mr. Blaine said he thought he would leave his family in sscotland and run down to London to-dav.

HIS MOVEMENTS YESTERDAY?MORE INVITATIONS TO VISIT OTHER CITIES. When the Presidential party reached Canastota yesterday, 2,000 people had gathered and were awaiting the distinguished party at the depot. When the t rain came to a standstill Postmaster Bartow Introduced Mr. Cleveland to the people and an Informal reception for the next fifteen min utes was held, 500 people shaking hands with the President. Mrs. Cleveland stood In the doorway of the car and acknowledged the salutations of the crowd. THE RECEPTION AT CASENOVIA, on the arrival ot the party there, was a hearty one. A procession was formed and escorted the p.irty to Mrs. Lmcklaen's residence, which is also the summer home of Secretary Falrohild. her son in-law. The town was everywhere gaily decor ated with national colors. The place never betore saw such crowds of people. At 4 o'clock a gen eral reception began at the Lincklaen mansion. The attendance was large and represented the Im mediate localliy, adjacent towns and the city of Syracuse, from which place special trains came. Volunteers from Knowlton Poat, G. A. It, acted as ushers. The party dined at the residence of Sid ney T. Falrchlld, rather of the Secretary. On the way there from Canastota Mrs. Roscoe Conkling sent a basket of flowers, which was presented to Mrs. Cleveland. just betore the reception began Mrs. Cleveland was presented with a solid oaken box, silver mounted, containing a teacup and saucer, one of a breakfast sel used oy George Washington. The box was made from the wood of a white oak tree under which the flrst settler of cazenovla pitched his tent. Tlie gilt was from Miss Llzzle'Murray Lelyard. The crowd passed through the house at the rate of thirty a minute, and many of the peo ple were presented by name. The President and Mrs. Cleveland and secretary and Mrs. Falrchlld dined with Mrs. Lincklaen at 7:30 o'clock, and at 8:30 were driven to the Owayhena Boat club house, on the shore ot the lake, where they wit nessed the pyrotechnic display and Illuminations, which were on a grand scale aud thoroughly en joyed by the Presidential party.

MORE INVITATIONS. yesterday the city council of Milwaukee invited President and Mrs. Cleveland to pay a visit to Mil waukee during the present summer or coming autumn.

Drake, D. C. Cregar, and M. W. Fuller, in the Interest ot having the city council extend an Invitation to President Cleveland to visit the city during his proposed Western trip, and at the time of the soldiers' encampment In October, If possible. The mayor fell in with the suggestion at once, and said he would lay the matter before the council and also give the move ment his hearty support. ?o? The German crown prince's throat affection is being rapidly cured. _ Christopher A.

A Pleasant Change in the Weather Victim* of Yeeterday'e Heat* The extreme heat of yesterday was tempered about 3:30 o'clock by a wind storm ot short dura tion, accompanied by a small amount of rain, and the remaining hours of the day were compara tively comfortable. The afternoon storm, which barely touched this city, was very violent In Mary land east of Washington, and did considerable damage In Baltimore. Between 2 and 3 o'clock this morning a thunder storm visited the city and there was a copious rainfall with a great and re freshing fall of the temperature, predicted by the Weather Bureau. So this morning the people awoke with the grateful prospect before them of a cool day. Yesterday's heat surpassed the record. The number of persons reported as prostrated by the heat and fatal cases of sunstroke was greater than ever reported before. A DROP or THIRTY-ONE DEGREES?FROM ONE HUNDRED AND THREE TO 8EVENTT-TWO. The predictions of the weather prophet, as announced In yesterday's Star, were fulfilled to the letter, much to the satisfaction of the entire community, who were becoming Jaded almost beyond endurance by the continued intense heat. Tlie maximum temperature yesterday was 103 degrees?one degree more than that at 2 o'clock, as announced In The star. Th? occasional thunder storms which were promised began to arrive shortly after the temperature reached its maximum, giving much-need relief. Other storms during the night had a wonder fully cooling effect upon the atmosphere, and this morning the Signal office registered only 72 degrees, a drop of 11 degrees from yester day morning and 31 degrees from the aiternoon. It was stated at the Signal ORlee to-day that the temperature fell during the past twenty-four hours all over the country, ex ept in New England and a small portion of the Atlantic coast along South Carolina and Georgia. In the former locality lower temperature was not needed, and In the latter the heat will moderate to-day, as an nounced. THE COOL TROUGH Is moving southerly, and will put an end to the heat. A Star reporter was told at the Signal Office to-day that we may look for slightly cooler weather, with occasional storms, for the next tweuty-iour hours, to be followed by stationary temperature. There is nothing, however, t ? war rant a continuance of cooler weather, and It will probably begin to heat up again gradually, although It Is not thought that the heat will be as Intense as that of the past week. A cloudy area Is making its way down from the Northwest, and If It reaches us will have a tendency to mitigate the fierceness of the sun's rays. DEATHS FROM THE HEAT. Mr. Mark Cunningham, liquor dealer at 13377th street, spent Sunday last at Fortress Monroe, and while there was sunstruck. lie partially recov ered and returned to the city yesterday morning. In the afternoon he became sick again when at his home, 700 Q street, ar_d Dr. Nay lor attended him. lie died about 5:30 o'clock Irom the effects of the heat. Mr. Cunningham was formerly of the firm of Cun ningham & Daly, aged about thirty-five years, and leaves a wife and an Infant child. Ills funeral will take place to-morrow Luther Foe, who lived on 7th street, between I and K streets southwest, while at work in rront of his residence yesterday about 1 o'clock, was sunstruck and lived only forty minutes. Lucius Leech, a carpenter, who lived at the cor ner of Oih and Boundary streets, was overcome by the heat at the intersection ot New Jersey and Virginia avenues southwest yesterday afternoon, and died In about half an hour,lu the Police ambu lance, on his way to the hospltaL Francis McKernan, ol Scranton, Pa., who was staying at the Columbia Hotel, was overcome by the heat on the steamer City of Alexandria, and died soon after reaching the wharf. OTHER CASES OF SUNSTROKE. Jno. Wesley, while at work in the coal yard cor ner of 1st and K streets northeast, was overcome by the heat about 2 o'clock p. in. yesterday and was taken to his home, 513 L street northeast, in the patrol wagon. .Jno. Blackburn, a colored waiter at Wlllard's Hotel, was overcome by the heat while at work In the hotel, but soon, recovered and went to his home, on 3d street southwest. James De Neal, a boy sixteen years old, living at the corner of 8th and Boundary streets, was over come by the heat at the corner of 10th and C streets yesterday afternoon. He was taken to the first precinct station, and was attended by Dr. Long, of the Emergency Hospital, and recovered sufficiently to be removed to his home. W. H. Baker, a clerk In the Pen&lon Office, was Srostrated a his desk yesterday, and was taken to Is home, 729 Gth street southeast. A young woman, name unknown, was sunstruck at the oih street wharf while going on board the steamer Lady of the Lake yesterday, she re covered sufficiently to be placed on board the boat, and left at o o'clock for Norfolk. THE COOL WAVE SAVES MANY LIVES. Dr. Townshend, the health officer, said to a Star reporter to-day that the cool wave that came to day probably save a great many lives. He thought that If the weather had continued to-day like yesterday that there would have been a score or more of fatal cases of sunstroke or prostration. The mortality among Infants during the past two or tlree days, he said, had been appalling. This sudden and grateful change In the temperature was more potent In the cases of sick children than any amount of medicine. DEATHS FROM THE HEAT IX OTHER CITIES. The record of the results ot yesterday's hot weather is a sad one. In Chloago, although the cool wave had arrived and the mercury only ranged between 86 and 90 degrees, the mortality was very great, Including 203 babies less than a vear old. lu Cincinnati tne thermometer ranged from 100 to 104 degrees, aud there were 26 pros trations and 6 deaths. Pittsburg showed 94 de grees, with 17 sudden deaths and nearly twice as many prostrations. In Richmond the mercury ranged between 100 and 106. There were six deaths from the heat. Other Virginia cities show a high altitude of the mercury. Petersburg. 100; Winchester, 102-103; Charlottesville, 9s; Lynch burg, 106. Augusta, Ga., recorded 104 degrees and Baltimore 102, with 25 cases of prostration, six being fataL Charleston, S. C., registered 103 and liaieigh, N. C., 104 degrees. At Jacksonville, Fla., the thermometer reached 100 degrees for the first time in three years. Thumler storms In the aiternoon and during the night were general throughout the country, and tlie backbone of the hot spell may be considered broken. Hones in Hot Weather. WHAT TO DO FOR ANIMALS OVERCOME RV THE HEAT. "No, our horses did not suffer as much as I first thought they would," said Mr. W. T. Strong, vete rinary surgeon of the Washington aud Georgetown Kallroad Co., to a Star reporter this morning "Five of our horses were overcome by the heat, I four of which recovered, but the fifth died before aid could be had." "What do you do for horses overcome by heat?" asked the Star man. "I have given the following prescription, with good effect, in many cases," said Mr. Strong: "Ounce of sulphurle ether, drachm of tlncturefof belladonna, fifteen to twenty drons of aconite, mixed hi a quart of ale or beer. Before this Is given apply chopped Ice to the base of the horses' brain, and also sponge the head with Ice water."

THE VJXKOX PACIFIC INQL'IBV. The Investigating Committee Vet Souie Information at Cheyenne. Chetenne, V\. T., July ly.?The Pacific Railroad Investigating Commission had a public sessiou here yesterday. A number of witnesses were ex. amlned, among them belDg Francis F.

In reply to a question by Gov. Pattlson as to why the I nited States Government should assist the Union Pacillc to build branches more than it should assist other roads to do so, the witness said tnat the Government should only assist, tne Union Pacific to the extent that It, the Government would be assisting Itself. The Union Pacillc should be held to a strict accountability ror its debt, but, as In the case of any other aebtor, should be as sisted by Its creditor into a position where It could pay.
