Blocks on the surface lines were fre quent during the morning on the upper west side. At 42d street and Broadway the water flowed Into the excavation for the new Times building, making a lake fifteen feet deep nnd doing considerable damage. The subway excavation from 42d street to 104th street was flooded, and In many places the contractors sustained heavy damage by washouts. The tracks of the New York Central along the Hudson river were covered with water. Pine street from Broadway to Beaver street, one of the busiest parts of the finan cial district, was almost undermined through the washing away of a newly con structed sewer. Parts of the sidewalk and street sank perceptibly, and because of a series "f breaks In the steam pipes of the New York Steam Heating Company the broken street surface gave out steam like an active volcano.

Steamers Beaching Norfolk This Morn ing Report Rough Experiences. Swliil Plwpatrb to The Krenlng Star. PORTSMOU TH. Va., October ft?A ter hiflo g>le struck this coast last night, and Is still howling out at tlie capes. All arriv ing vessels are late, and their passengers half dead with fright and seasickness. The rainstorm of yesterday afternoon rapidly grew into a storm which was esneclaly se vere on the usually tranquil Chesapeake bay. The sixty-mile gale lashed the waters of the bay into fury, however, and at 2 o'clock this morning, when the gale was at Its height, some of the passengers on the Incoming l>oats became almost panlc stricken. The favorite fashion In evening dress aboard the Washington steamer Norfolk about that time was white, with life pre servers. The officers of the steamer state that there w;is not a time during the gale when she was in any danger. The rough seas which she encountered In turning Smith's Point at the mouth of the Potomac were what did all the mischief. Some of the freight got loose and shifted about with terrifying noises.- Much of it was broken open The violent rolling of the boat frightened the passengers badly. The screams of women and loud demands regarding the whereabouts of the life pre servers created fear among those who would otherwise have been cool. Mr. Wil liam Linn and wife of Norfolk, who were among the passengers on the Norfolk, 6tat?d that they never had such an ex perience. The crashing of the freight bo low and the pounding of the waves against the boat's side was terrifying they stated. Nobody slept and every one was early on deck, some wearing life preservers. One excited lady put hers on about her neck. Crockery and glassware, the wines and liquors In the cafe and everything else breakable was broken. The furniture flew about the decks, and It was almost Im possible to sleep. Similar experiences were encountered by every boat coming down the bay this morning. Nobody was hurt, but the boats were all pounded and tossed terribly by the storm. Danger at Pater son, N. J. PATERSON, N. J., October 8.?Unless the rain soon ceases there is danger of an other destructive flood in this city. The river district Is again partly- flooded and the river is .' till ri3ing rapidly. Before noon the water was about a foot and a half from the Arch street bridge approaches, and it is feared that if it continues to rise it will be forced back by the bridgework as if by a ilam, anil will flood the business section of the city. Water, River, Bergen, Arch, Straight, Main, North Main and Clinton streets were all flooded. In the factories along the river front the operatives were dismissed and are being taken from the buildings in boats. The bank ol' the canal in South Paterson gave way and all the territory in the vicinity ?was flooded. In lower Paterson the water in the canal ?was shut off and allowed to run into the river. LONDON, October 9.?The heaviest rain fall of tire year is causing enormous damage in the north of England. The roads are lm passal.le. railroads are being interrupted, bridges are down and the valleys of the Dee and of the Tweed are like Inland seas. All kinds of animals and wreckage are floating seaward.

KOSTENDIL, Bulgaria, October !>.?A bnttallon of Turkish troops occupying a post at Karamanitza yesterday crossed the Bulgarian frontier and attacked a Bulga rian blockhouse. In consequence of the Turkish superiority in numbers the Bulga rian detachment retired, tiring on the in vaders. The Turks subsequently attacked the vil lage of Guvesevo and looted a number of houses, but on the approach of Bulgarian reinforcements retired. Three Turks were killed. END NOT IN SIGHT. Probability That Strike of Marble Cut ters Will Be Protracted. There is said to be not the slightest probability that a settlement will be reached soon in the national and local sympathetic strikes among the marble workers. The majority of the local marble workmen who went out on strike about ten days ago In sympathy with the mem bers of the craft who were locked out In all the principal cities by the national aas-M-i.'.tlon of marble contracting firms have left Washington for New York and Chicago, the only two cities of any size not affected by the dispute. It Is estimated that the local sympa thetic strike will mean a great loss of money and delay in operations to both the workmen and employers of Washington. The local union of marble workers is said to have a membership of about 100. The rate of union wages is J4 per day. Since the contractors iiavo found it Impossible to rontlnue their marble work they have been considering the advisability of alter ing the plans of all buildings affected to the extent of installing hardwood instead of stone Wills Piled for Probate. The will of Julia F. Howison. dated Sep tember .1, ISKXt. was tiled today for probate. Her estate Is left to her husband. Robert B. Howison. who is named executor.

Regarded as Discourteous. Considerable adverse comment was caused among the spectators of the parade by the fact that a minstrel brass band was al lowed to follow on the heels of the distin guished military visitors up Pennsylvania avenue. It was generally regarded as a discourtesy that should have been pre vented by the police. AtlSth street and Pennsylvania avenue the line of parade crossed the car tracks. I he electric cars, regardless of courtesy were driven through the ranks of the marchers. This was also the subject of un favorable criticism. Reception at the White House.

THE WOMEN'S MISSIONS CLOSING DAY OF THE BALTIMORE BRANCH SOCIETY. Reports of Officers and the Committees ?Choice of Delegates to Baltimore Meeting. The session this morning of the closing day of the thirty-second annual meeting of the Baltimore Branch, Woman's Foreign Mis sionary Society, convened at 9 o clock. Ihe program called the gathering for 9:30, but the amount of business before the body ne cessitated the meeting at an earlier hour. The devotional exercises were in charge of Frederick district. Reports were submit ted by a number of committees, among which were the publication and finance committees. The publication committee's report showed that $231.70 had been expend ed in literature during the past year. The committee recommended that 2,000 copies of the proceedings of this meeting be printed. Another feature of the report was the an nouncement that the badge of the society had been adopted for the Baltimore branch. The design of the seal is a cross upon a globe surrounded by a blue band, on which are the words; -Woman's Foreign Mis sionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church." The seal is used upon all publi cations. A badge, similar in design to the seal, is worn by the members. The finance committee reported appropri ations for the next year amounting to $10, 000 for the Baltimore branch, an increase of over JUVK) appropriated last year. This ap propriation is to be devoted to work in In dia China, Japan, Korea, Italy and Mexico. "Our Periodicals," a paper read by Mrs. J R. McKenney, showed that 1,000 copies of the "Woman's Missionary Friend" were taken by the members of this branch. Following these was a drill on Lux Christl conducted by Mrs. J. C. Ockerman, secretary of literature for the Baltimore branch. Lux Christi is a book on the reli gions and education and political conditions of India, which has been studied during the past year by members of the society. Among those who responded during the drill were Miss Amy Lewis of Japan, contrasting Buddhism, and Mrs. S. A. Hill, for many years a resident in India, on the rule or Mahomet in India. During the coming year Rex Christus. a book on missionary work in China, will be studied by the society. Result of Election. The election of the remaining delegate to the Baltimore meeting of the general ex ecutive committee was next held and re sulted In the selection of Mrs. E. H. Zelgler of Frederick district, Hagerstown, Md. The following alternates to the committee meet ing were chosen; Miss Mary Jump of Wil mington conference and Mrs. James Clark of Frederick conference. Following the announcement of the fore going elections Mrs. A. E. Bovee, In behalf of Washington district, presented Mrs. S. M. Hartsock. the retiring district secretary of the local organization, with a gold watch as a mark of esteem. Mrs. Hartsock re ferred appropriately to the presentation address, and assured the donors that the gift would ever be cherished as a most happy reminder of her associations with Washington district. A paper, entitled "Missionary Literature the Key to Success," was read by Mrs. J. Finney Engle, followed by the reading of the report of the bureau of supplies. This paper showed that during the past year supplies and literature to the amount of $374.8(1 were sold, and with the balance on hand at the close of last year of $59.82 made a total of 1434.68. The disbursements for the same period .amounted to $315.03, leaving a balance on hand of $110.65. Mrs. S. A. Hill made an" appeal for the literature table, and urged that the dele gates patronize It, so that the report of the sales would show an encouraging Increase over former years. At 12:45 the session adjourned, to meet at 2 o'clock. Asks for Appointment of Trusts*. In a bill In equity filed this afternoon by Arthur S. Arnold, Joseph E. Straus and Samuel F. Nordllnger, through Attorney Jesse E. Potbury, against E. Welsh Ash ford and Messrs. Luttrell and Richards, in their capacity as executors of the estate of George J. Johnson, the court is asked to appoint a trustee in place of Ashford. who has left this city, for the purpose of I carrying out the terms of a trust. i ; ? r ? ft Match Play on Columbia Golf 'm Course. ? u. HIGH,WIND BLOWING ANDREWS OF PRINCETON DE FEATS TATFERTY. Dr. Lee Harbon Wins From Mr. Mal lory and Dr. W. S. Harban From Mr. Reynolds?Afternoon Play. The gale that swept over the course of the Columbia Golf Club today was almost as bad as the rain storm of yesterday. With rain for the opening day of Its fall tournament, a gale for the second and a snow storm among the possibilities for to morrow, the Columbia boys can be said to be having hard luck. When the group of golf enthusiasts gath ered at the club house this morning for match play they found a gale which to the inexpert seemed to be blowing fully a hun dred miles an hour, and it made things very uncomfortable for everybody. Drives were given up from the start, the players en deavoring to ground the balls so as to get good lies for tne approach shots. Several of the more reckless cut loose with the hardest sort of drives, the ball sailing up into the air to great heights, where it was caught on the wind and carried off the course into the woods, lies resulting that probably occasioned a lot of unspoken pro fanity. This was particularly noticeable at the home tee, the wind from the northwest coming directly into the face'of the players. As the course lies down hill from this point the wise golfers were the ones that partially topped their drives and as a re sult the balls would roll considerable dis tances into good positions. About the only good thing that can be said of today's gale is the fact that it dried up the course well, making it more comfortable for the play ers in walking over the turf and not stop ping the balls as in yesterday's play. Dur ing the rain yesterday the balls would hard ly Jump more than two yards after striking the ground from hard drives, but today they skimmed along the ground like swallpws. The playing of Dr. Lee Harban and Mr. George Lafferty in yesterday's qualifying round was the chief topic of conversation this morfling at the club house. The doc tor's exhibition was most pleasing to the home players, as he Is depended upon to keep at least one of the trophies from going away, while in the case of Mr. Lafferty it demonstrated-4hat ha has overcome the hoodoo that has followed him over the Co lumbia court* lh past seasons. About the only disappointment yesterday was the playing.of Mr. Ormsby McCammon. He was going well last spring, and even while abroad hi* play on the foreign courses was up to: the -standard, but yesterday he went back with a rush, landing in the sec ond sixteen. Some of Mr. Mo* aminon s friends account for the off strokes as a re~ suit of thte' atmosphere. It being his iirst game since tais return. Pairing for Today. After tl$ closing of the 30-holes qualify ing round yesterday, the committee got to gether antf In a few minutes had paired the players for today's match play, as follows; First sixteen?Dr. L. L. Harban vs. Mr. Mallory, Mr. .-Peter vs. Mr. Britton. Mr. Lard vs. Dr. Gj;ay. Dr. W. S. Harban vs. Mr. Rcyitold^ Mr. Lufferty vs. Mr. An drews, ? Mr. Bronke"vs. Mr. Sefton, Mr. Carusl vB. Mr. Hongh. Mr. L. W. Weaver vs. Mr. jfraftingly. Second Sixteen?Mr. McCammon vs. Mr. Delano, Mr. Duvali vs. Mr. Lynds, Mr. Talcott vs. Mr. Eynon. Mr. George Weaver vs Mr. Sullivan, Mr. Davidson vs. Mr. Lea veil, Mr. Waggaman vs. Dr. Sterrett, Mr, Pyle vs. Mr. David Weaver. Mr. Lan ston vs. Mr. Harding. The Start. Messrs. Langston and Harding were the fir??t to start the day's play today, driving off promptly at lO:."#), the time specified In the program. Both started off with good drives, the latter getting a good lie. al though the ball was slightly sliced. Messrs. Talbot and Eynon were second away, the former's hard drive carrying into the woods to the right of the course, but a beautiful recovery followed. Dr. W. S. Harban and Mr. Reynolds was the first couple of the leading sixteen play ers to get away, both gentlemen getting nice drives through cleverly grounding the balls from the tee. The bad weather kept down the gallery to small proportions, but the few spectators who gathered at the club house mustered up enough courage to face the wind and follow Dr. Lee Harban when he started off with Mr. Mallory. Weather conditions ap parently have no terrors for the doctor, as he captured the iirst three holes right off the reel, taking four strokes for each hole? L-xactly par golf. On the first hole Dr. Har ban partially topped his ball, but his second shot landed him on the green, making a four somewhat easy. Mr. Mallory sliced his ball over into the grass to the right of the course and his ipproach shot was poor. On the next try he sailed over the green and finished out on six strokes. On the second hole both players got good drives as they went with the wind, and muscle and accuracy counted tor a great deal. On the approach Mr. Mal lory fell short, while Dr. Harban got on to the green, but took two more to get jut, while his opponent missed a two-foot putt and took five..On the third hole only i few yards separated the two balls after the drives, both being good for about 170 yards. The approach shots were good, andlrig the ball on the green, but again the ioctor crept up close on the third try and :iad an easy putt for the fourth, while Mr. Mallory again took five. The cool weather appeared to fill the players with energy, and all the contest mts appeared anxious to get down to work. The result was prompt starts In >oth slxteenB, and by 11:15 all the con stants were out on the course and bat tling with the wind and their opponents. 5ood scoring Is not looked for today, but, >f course, 'several players may be favored with great! good luck and turn in cards :hat will create considerable discussion. Tomorrow's handicap will probably be a arge affair, as already fully twenty-five lames harve been entered on the black <oard, and these are without the well mown golfers from the different local clubs iTho are sure to take part. These handl :aps are populW, as every one has a chance or the trophy.,if favored with good luck >acked up;yltt? good playing. LaABtob Defeats Harding. An allowance of about two hours to cover he course proves a good guess, and It was ibout 12:55 when the first couple turned n their c^d^^r. Lanston defeating Mr. larding by 6 up and 5 to play. The former vas particularly fortunate with his drives, lever once leaving the course, and this >roves very advantageous In getting good ipproach shots. The second pair to turn In were Messrs. Talcott and Eynon, the former winning by ' up and 5 to play. These good margins enabled the players o cut out the last holes and quit on the ourteen green, which is close to the club louse. Mr. Talcott missed several drives n pulling or slicing, but his recoveries were of the startling sort and winners. Mr. Eynon Is a new player, but did well for the first half dosen holes, when the strain old on him and he dropped to the rear. The fourteenth hole was the stopping >lace for many of the couples, and It was jj-45 before a pair went by to the higher loles. This was Messrs. Britton and Peter, he gallery of players and spectators rais ng their hats as they went by, the former >eing 3 up at that point. Close on their leels came Dr.. Lee Harban and Mr. Mal ory, and they too went by as the former ras only 4 up. which left still a chance for he Baltlmorean to tie up tue score. Mr. Pyie^eecured an easy match (n the second sixteen, as his running mate, Mr. David Weaver, defaulted. Dr. W. S. Harban was the flrst to turn in of the flrst sixteen, he having worsted Mr. Reynolds by 6 up and 5 to play. Another easy match was that between Mr. Ed. Brooke and Mr. Sefton. The latter got a bad-start, and although he made several beautiful recovery shots the former out played him and won by t> up and r> to play. Another one-sided score showed up when Messrs. Carusl and Hough handed in their cards, the former winning l>y 6 up and S to play. Andrews Defeats Lafferty. Big scores were the order of the first round of match play, the only close con tests developing in the first sixteen, where two pairs had to go 19 holes to settle the controversy. Andrews, the Princeton boy, beat Lafferty 1 up on the nineteenth hole, while Dr. Gray won from Lard by the same score on the same number of holes. The first of these matches proved a big surprise, as Mr. Lafferty had been going splendidly, but the wind proved his undo ing today. A large gallery watched Dr. Gray win his match on the extra hole. The other matches resulted as follows: Dr. Lee Harban beat Mallory, 4 up an 2 to play: Britton beat Peter. 2 up and 1 to play: Louis Weaver beat Mattingly. 8 up and 7: McCammon beat Delano. ?t up and 4; Duvall beat Lynds, 7 up and 5: Geo.

Captain Lee Harban's manifold duties in connection with the tournament prevented him starting out until late yesterday In the qualifying round, so that his score for the first eighteen holes was hung up too late for last Evening's Star. The doctor created something of a sensation at the club house when It was ascertained that he had covered the course in 77. This is two under bogey, and when the weather conditions are considered the playing of the Columbia's genial cap tain borders on the marvelous. From start to finish he displayed unerring accuracy in his putting and was as steady as a clock In driving and approaching. On the very iirst hole he g.'tve evidence of what could be expected of him, as In a driving rain he covered it in three strokes, one bet ter than the mythical "Colonel." This excellent score was something of a surprise to Dr. Harban himself, as he has not been playing up to his usual form of late, but yesterday's work is a sure indica tion that he will be a big factor in the tour neys this fall. In the second round the doctor didn't go quite so well, but nevertheless managed to turn in the best gross score of the day?160? ami win the handsome qualification prize. George Lafferty also played excellent golf, falling just one short of Dr. Harban with 101. The Qualification Bound.

Calvary Baptist Bible Club to Aid As sociated Charities. At the Calvary Baptist Church last evening at 7 oclock the Teachers' Bi ble Club devoted its entire meeting to considering plans of active co-operation with the Associated Charities and with the public playground movement which has grown out of the Associated Charities" work. Gen. William S. Shallenberger pre sided and several members of the Bible Club delivered brief addresses. Mrs. Wil liam H. Hoeke, Mr. Kimball and Mr. P. H. Bristow were among the speakers who rep resented various departments of the Cal vary Sunday school, and told what they thought the Sunday school might do to as sist the work of Friendly Visitors and Sav ings Collectors In connection with the Asso ciated Charities, and to provide personal supervision for the public playgrounds at North Capitol and L streets northwest, In which Calvary Baptist Churoh. together with several other church organizations, is taking an especial interest. The general secretary of the Associated Charities, Mr. Charles F. Weller, was caHed upon to explain the work of the association and the needs for volunteer personal serv ice among 3,500 families with whom the as sociation has to deal each year. He ex plained in detail how Friendly Visitors and Savings Collectors are introduced to the families whom they seek to befriend, and carefully guided in all their personal work. Mr. Cuno H. Rudolph, chairman of the spe cial public playgrounds committee, also addressed the meeting, explaining that the chief need of the playground at North Cap itol and L streets northwest, was for a paid caretaker, who would organize basket ball teams and base ball teams, and various other forme of play as well as to see to It that good order Is preserved and a bene ficial Influence exerted by all the activities of the playground. In conclusion, Gen. Shallenberger an nounced that next Sunday will be the rally day of the Sunday school, when a special collection will be taken for these lines or philanthropic work and an effort made to inaugurate what might be called a "City Sunshine" movement, whose purpose would be to bring cheer and wholesome Influences Into the homes where such are needed, without any thought of sectarianism or any efTort to promote the interests of Calvary Baptist Church, and without any selfish motives upon -the part of the volunteer workers who may be enlisted from the vari ous departments of the Sunday school. enters plea of guilty. Charles Contee Fined $800 for Con ducting Unlicensed Bar. Charles Contee, a colored resident of Nallor's alley, who has been In the work house since the latter part of August await ing a jury trial on a charge of conducting an unlicensed bar at his home, was brought to the Police Court today, where he with drew demand for a trial by Jury. He en tered a plea of guilty, and Judge Kimball, before Imposing sentence, heard a statement by Mounted Policeman Green of the second precinct. The officer informed the court that he visited Contee's home one Sunday in August and found thirty one-half pint bottles of whisky. Contee pleaded with the court to be len ient with him, saying that he was out ot rent money and sold the liquor to pay the rent. The court, however, decided that he must stand the conseqeunces and Imposed a fine of $800, with six months on the farm as the alternative. Mechanics' Liens. 513S?Warren A Dyer agt. Sarah G.

The previ ous low level before today was 35-'>s. yester day. Various other industrial shares also were weak.

New York Central, Penn sylvania and Rock Island gained a small fraction. l^irge selling of Amalgamated developed when It recovered to near ;?i and it fell off to 34%. checking the improve ment elsewhere and causing a resumption of the general selling.

A renewed attack on Amalgamated, which forced it down to 34%. started prices else where down again, but the standard stocks were not much affected. Tennessee Coal extended its decline to 2 points, and there was some pressure against Brooklyn Tran sit and U. S. Steel.

Some of the western stocks ruled a good fraction above yester day's close. Including Atchison, Missouri Pacific and St. Paul. New York Stock Market. Furnished by W. B.

Work has been begun on the extension of the Falls Chorch electric railroad from its present terminus at West Falls Church to Dunn Lorlng, two miles beyond. It Is expected that this additional length of roftd will soon be ready for the running of care, as the undertaking in not a large one. It Is supposed to be the ultimate intention to continue this road farther along to Vienna, but there Is nothing definitely known as to that. The patrons of this line are naturally In terested In the strengthening of the Aque duct bridge and the changing of the upper portion, which is soon to be t-egun. for then tracks can be laid on the bridge. The law which gave the Old IXimlnlon electric road the right to lay tracks on the bridge when that structure Is In readiness for It also allows any other electric road running to the bridge to make traffic arrangements so that the use of that structure is permitted to all lines. Instead, therefore, of landing Its passengers on the Virginia side of the bridge, as is now the case, they will be brought to the Georgetown side. There is some talk of the Falls Church line ultimately being built as far as Fairfax Court House, although that fs not from offi cial sources. A right of way which was secured some time ago on behalf of another company Is supposed to be available, and there Is no doubt a large number of the residents In that locality favor the building of such line. What will be done by the Falls Church road Is not known. There seems to be no doubt that an elec tric road between this city and Fairfax Court House is likely to be built In the near future. If the Falls Church people are con sidering the matter at all seriously they aro likely to find a competitor In the Held, for that Is the destination of a line that la to run over the tracks of the Washington and Arlington road as far as Brlckhaven, and then to strike across the country, passing through Vienna and ending at Fairfax Court House. Portions Of the proposed route of this road have been secured by condem nation. and the parties Interested are con fident that the road will be built in the near future. Business continued to be rather meager at the stock exchange today. There was very little demand, and brokers did not seem to be burdened with orders to sell or to buy. The situation seems to be that securities will be taken to a moderate ex tent If they are offered at low prices. An fttempt to market any large quantity re sults In pulling down prices. A lUd of llSVi was made for $1,000 In gas certificates, and $2,500 was offered at 111H? and $1,000 at lilt. Five shares of the stock were offered at GO and twenty-five at 5U1/*. For fifty shares fAVi was bid. A sale of a few shares was made at 5l'Mi Only bids for fractional lots were made for Capital Traction stock: 11SV? was bid for 2t> shares and 110 for 10 shares, while 10 were offered at lUt'V One hundred shares of Washing-ton Street Railway preferred were offered at 40, but as .'18 was the highest bid, no trading was dont'j. The same thing happened with Real Kstate Title stock, twenty shares being of fered at U0. The highest bid was 80 for ten.
