One of the encouraging signs of the times is the wonderful growth of popular interest in forestry, and the intluence which the wider knowledge of the Importance of the subject is having upon the movement to preserve the great natural forest wealth ol the country against the inroads of waste, carelessness and wanton destruction. When President Cleveland issued his order ex tending the ar?*a of the national forest re serves the protest made by cattlemen, mitr ing interests and lumbermen, who were wasting th?* forests of the national domain, was so strong that it seemed likely to stay the progress of forest preservation. In the meantime information about forestry hns been diligently and persistently spread abroad, and the people In the districts from which formerly the strongest protests came against preserving forest lands are now said to be among the most eager to get bills through Congress extending the area of parks and reserves. The change is also apparent In Congress. The popular demand for safeguarding the national forest wealth Is so atrong that senators who were formerly Inclined to take the view of the mining camps, oatUe kings and voracious lumbermen, do not llnd ft expedient to oppose the popular opinion. With the beginning of the present fiscal year, July 1, 11* >1, the forestry bureau of the Department of Agriculture went Into operation for the first time, and will here after do the work previously confided to ? division. Year before last the congres sional appropriation for forestry was $28,520; last year It was $K8,520, and for the new fiscal year the sum Is $185,440. Three years ago the working force in the forestry division was eleven, while the forestry bu reau now has 125 employes. There are now about ?47,000,(X*) acres In forest preserves, and the work of extending the domain will undoubtedly go forward with rapidity. The annual consumption of lumber In the United States amounts In value to about IHOrt.WW, 00M, or as much as the total mineral pro duction of the country. The object of the forestry bureau is not only to preserve certain tracts of forest land, but to teach the Importance of intelligently safeguard ing the forest wealth. Within recent years 20 per cent of the merchantable timber of the state of Washington has been burn'*!. As It Is estimated that lH.OOOjWW.OOO fe?t are standing, enough has been wasted through carelessness to supply the whole United States for two years. Bin Storm on Lake Hnroa. A dispatch from Port Huron, Mich., Sun day night says: Tonight witnesses the result of one of the worst disasters on Lake Huron, owing to the severe gale which has been blowing for twenty-four hours. Piled up on shore are many thousand dollars of vessel property, and the chances for getting them off are slim, unless many thousand dollars arc ex pended in dredging. Strange to say. In connection with this great calamity there is no loss of life. The life-saving crew took off thirty-eight peo ple during last night, and the others were beyond' danger.

Experienced of a Washlngtonian Dar in* the Civil War. Among those from this city who expect to attend the eighth annual reunion of the survivors of the 43d Battalion, Virginia Cavalry (Mosby's men), at Warrenton, Va., Saturday next, is Mr. Robert M. Harrover, who had a memorable experience during the civil war. On Thursday. October 22, 1863, Lieut. Frank Williams, with Charles Mason, Dr. Ed. Stratton, John H. Barnes and Mr. Har rover, were scouting inside the federal lines in Fairfax county, Va., when they discov ered a number of United States horses grazing in a field near a federal camp. They attempted to drive them ofT, when they were seen by a citizen, who reported their presence, and a detachment of about forty men of the California Battalion and Baker s Rangers were sent out to capture them. The federals approached through a thick woods and were within flfty yards or the Intruders before they were observed. Lieut. Williams and his party attempted to escape, but their horses being tired out by a march of forty miles, as well as by sev eral lively races from pickets during the night, they were soon run down by the federals. Charles Mason was killed and Dr. Stratton, Barnes and Harrover were taken prisoners. Lieut. Williams alone es caped, but lost his horse. Mr. Harrover was brought to Washing ton and tried by a military commission for leaving Washington city after he had been enrolled, and attaching himself to a band of guerrillas." The result was that he was sentenced to be shot. This sen-' tence was afterward commuted to impris onment in the Albany penitentiary for ten years. He had been confined for eight months in the Carroll prison and two months In the old Capitol, and as the time approached for his removal to Albany he determined to make an effort to escape. He and a fellow prisoner named Harrison, a Mississippian belonging to the Jeff. Davis Legion, made a rope of their bed clothes, an<i ?n the night of August 1?, 1*64, low ered themselves from an upper, window to the pavement, when the sentinel's back was toward them in pacing his beat, and escaped in the darkness. As they touched the ground and ran off in opposite direc tions the guard turned and snapped his gun at them. Harrover sought the house i ia ^r'ent^' where he was furnished with civilian clothes and passes out through Georgetown. Near Rockville he .overtook a party of young Marylanders on their way south. He joined them, and crossing the Potomac, was soon safe within Mosby's lines. After the close of the war Mr. Harrover applied for pardon, and his application was at first rejected, but afterward being fa vorably considered he received a notice of pardon and that he would be paroled on the same footing with other confederate soldiers. DR. PARK'S VIEWS. He Connlder* the President's Condi tion as Very Satlitfactory. Dr. Park gave his views of the Presi dent's case as follows: "If in such a case (cases analogous to that of the President) the patient is in good condition at the end of the third day the attendants are justified in regarding | it as having passed a most critical period. If now the public chooses to apply that statement to the particular case of the President It would probably make no mis take. "We have seen nothing to justify any alarming rumors, and I don't know how they should have obtained circulation. "Sunday the President slept like a child, and yesterday morning was as cheerful as could be desired and as communicative as ? artten<3?nts permitted him to be. ^ cannot allow him to talk yet. or per mithim to tire himself in any way. Mrs. ?McKlnley is the only person, other than the professional attendants In the case who ia allowed to see the President. ' *'Is " true," the doctor was asked, "that the physicians expect to make pufcllc a Statement giving a description of the oper ation and other interesting data regarding the case?" "Perhaps." Dr. Park answered, "in due time, as soon aS circumstances will permit a detailed report probably will appear in a medical Journal. But don't you think it is rather early to talk about that?" Dr. Park's manner throughout the inter view Indicated that his Impression of the prospects of the President's case, based upon the conditions as they now exist was hopeful.

From the Xew York Sua. 1 f Prof. W. H. Pickering fcas made observa tions to decide between tfce theories which ascribe the phenomena ?f Nova Persel to first, a collision between^ two stars moving In opposite direction^' nearly in tj,e 1Ine of sight, and. secondly, to the explosion of a single body. On thef latter hypothesis the gases sent out fror* the body would be sent out In all directions; and, therefore, would be moving toward the observer in the nearer hemisphere of the body, away frcm him In the body's fq&her hemisphere. As these gases cooled! la their advance into, space they would cause dark line absorp tions superposed on a bright line spectrum due to emission. Relative to the observer the gases com ing from the body's nearer hemisphere would displace the dark lines toward the violet and would be cooler on the side turned toward him, while the bright lines would be displaced oppositely for the fur ther hemisphere and the gases would be hotter on the side turned toward him. If the appearances are due to a collision the relative velocity of the sources of dark and of bright lines should be greatest at the time of the Mar's maximum brilliancy and less afterward. If they are due to an explosion the relative velocity should be least while the heated gasM ate forcing their way through a resisting medium, and greatest whan the crust hats given way un der the strain. Observation made to dia V? ????weoce. land Prof. Pickering to favor the explo sion as against the collision theory. Tomorrow's Sale.

Measnre* Taken for Protection of Ac cused in Case He 1* Tried?Con stable Charged With Assaalt. Evening Star Bureau, No. 701 King Street, Bell Telephone No. 1W, ALEXANDRIA, Va., September 10, 1901. The action of the special grand jury which has been called to meet In the cor poration court tomorrow morning to in vestigate the charge against Willis Petty of attempting to commit a criminal assault on Mrs. Roberta Payne is awaited with much interest by citizens generally. It is stated that the trial of the case before a petit Jury will follow soon after if an Indictment is reported. Judge J. K. M. Norton will preside, and the prosecution will be conducted by Attorney Samuel G. Brent in the absence of Commonwealth At torney Leonard Marbury. It is probable that the court will appoint counsel for the prisoner. There has been considerable speculation as to the probability qf any attempt being made to lynch Petty when he is produced in this city. It is assured, however, that the officers of the law will use every means of protecting the prisoner. The alleged crime was committed the evening of Au gust 22. The next day Petty was taken to Fairfax Court House for confinement in the jail there to protect him from threat ened mob violence. Just where he is now is not generally known, although it has been stated that he was taken to Char lottesville. Charges Against a Constable. Constable Grady of Jefferson district will appear before Mayor Simpson in the police court tomorrow morning to answer" the charge of assaulting a colored man named Howard Bradshaw. The same charge against the constable has been made at the police station by another colored man named Jack Beach. The case was to have been heard this morning, but the accused officer asked for a postponement In order that he might produce witnesses. The af fair grew out of an attempted raid on a gang of crap shooters just beyond the old canal baain Sunday last. Constable Grady, who is a colored officer, endeavored to round up the gang and seemed about to succeed when the players became aware of his approach and hastily dispersed. Jack Beach mounted a bicycle and attempted to speed away out of danger. He was fol lowed by the constable, who, after com manding the fugitive to halt, fired toward him several times with a revolver. Beach continued his scorching, but his flight was interrupted by a ditch into which he fell headlong. He succeeded in escaping, but his wheel fell into the hands of his pur suer. Grady saw Bradshaw standing near the scene of the crap shooting, and charged him with having given the signal of his approach. A contention followed, during which Bradshaw alleged he was struck by the officer. General and Personal. Funeral services over the remains of Wil liam C.

CZOLGOSZ HAD MOXEY. This Makes Cleveland Poliee Think He Had Xo Accomplices. According to a dispatch from Cleveland, the police there are still working on clews which may tend to the belief that a con spiracy existed in which Cleveland an archists were involved in a-plot to assassi nate the President. It has become known that Czolgosz had $300 or $400 in ready money when he left there two months ago. His people are in fairly comfortable cir cumstances, having property worth be tween $4,000 and $3,000. In spite of the fact that they are able to lend some help in his legal defense when that time comcs. the father. Paul Czolgosz, and the two brothers declare that the would-be assas sin must meet whatever fate may await him without any help from his family. The man who tried to kill the President had made to him in the latter part of July a payment of over $300 for his interest in the farm on which the family formerly lived between Cleveland and Chagrin Palls. The farm was sold for $1,700, and the share I of the assassin in the proceeds of the sale amounted to between $300 and $400, and all I but $50 of this was paid to him in July. Members of the family say that the Presi dent's assailant had no bad habits that would have caused him to spend the money rapidly, and it would probably have lasted him for his journey that preceded the crime at Buffalo. From the first it has been thought that the clew to the club or group of anarchists behind Czolgosz, if there was such a body, was the source of the money he used. With the source of his means explained, there is left nothing but surmise on which to base the belief that the man who shot the President was the tool of a conspiracy in which a number of anarchists were in volved. While the fact that Czolgosz had money does not make it certain that he was not the active figure of an assassina tion conspiracy, it removes one of the ele ments of the proof that there was such a conspiracy and makes it possible that the would-be assassin told the truth when he said that he had no accomplices. It has been found that for a time Czol gosz worked in the Stroh brewery in the East End. In the* vicinity of Payne ave nue and the brewery It is said that anarch ist and socialist agitators of the city gath ered frequently In the small saloons, and ,11 is likely that the man who tried to kill 'the President picked up his anarchistic sentiments amid those surroundings. In a small saloon on Payne avenue it Is said that the anarchists and socialists gathered on Saturday and held a celebration for the attemot on the Presided's life. Most of the loud talking that was kept up all day and most of the night was in foreign lan guages, but an English word now and then, with the name of the President and that of the man who shot him, indicated the cause of the apparent excitement. Yester day the saloon was closed and apparently deserted. Facta la the Cane. From tbe Chicago News. "Madam," said the poor but honest ice man.

PULSE OF THE PRESIDENT WALL STREET TRADING MOVES LP OR DOWN WITH IT. Announcements of Secretary <iatce Have Been Potent Factors In Avertia? a Serious Panic. "Wall street is trading on the pulse of the President," said W. B. Hibbs to a Star reporter this morning. "When his pulse and temperature go up. the market goes down, and this will doubtless continue to be the case until Mr. McKinley is assured ly out of all danger. ' Both yesterday and today the tendency of the stock market has been upwards, ;ui<l by noon today prices had gotten back to about where they were Friday. "The two announcements made to Wall street by Secretary Gage, one that the President would get well, and the other *hat he would do all in his power to re lieve the temporary money stringency brought about by.the shipment of currency from New York to the west to pay for crop shipments, has undoubtedly had much to do with preventing a serious panic. There are several ways in which Secretary Gage can carry out this promise. One is to raise the limit on the bond purchase, and doubtless in anticipation of this move, gov ernment bonds have gone up half a point. He will doubtless keep the full limit of deposits in all government depositories. There is also ground for belief that the Secretary will pay the October interest in advance. The interest due on government obligations the first of October, makes one of the largest payments. If this should be paid now it would relieve the New York stringency in the money market to a large extent. Recent Shake-ups Prove Safeguards. "In view of the fact that the market has passed recently through several severe shake-ups, such as the Flower pantc and the Northern Pacific corner, the trading re cently has been conservative, which Is In itself a safeguard. "The market rallied under the leadership of St. Paul, which has recovered ten points in twenty-four hours on the rumor that the property warrants an Increase in the div idend on the common stock to 7 per cent. "From the fact that trading is being done conservatively, and that Secretary Gage is entirely familiar with the money condi tions in New York and is inclined to relieve the stringency, makes the market strong in spite of the President's condition and the steel strike, which is still unsettled. If It had not been for lessons learned In the wild speculation of the last few months the shooting of the President would have created a serious panic." Speaking of the local market, Mr. Hibbs said there was no business being done. Local bankers and brokers are Just begin ning to get back to the city from their summer vacations. Money Is said to be plentiful In Washington, and the indica tions are that the local market will be both active and strong a little later on. Real estate transactions are at the low ebb of the year. There are of course plans being made in this line, and several deal ers report prospective deals of some magni tude. They will not, howeyer, be culminat ed for some weeks. After the Honeymoon.
