rainstorm of yesterday afternoon rapidly
grew into a storm which was esneclaly se

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

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

which accompanied the visitors. Tha Earl

don Company, marched at the head of his

a detachment of Minute Men, under com
mand of Col. M. A. Winter, awaited the
Honorables, and escorted them to the Arl

governor of Massachusetts.
The Ancients will spend the afternoon
seeing the sights of the national capital
hey will go to Mt. Vernon tomorrow
morning, and will be received by the Presi
dent in the afternoon.
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.

of the thirty-second annual meeting of the

cations. A badge, similar in design to the
seal, is worn by the members.

Match Play on Columbia Golf
'm Course.
? u.
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

Mr, Pyle vs. Mr. David Weaver. Mr. Lan

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

The Afternoon Play.
After a light luncheon the pairs faced
the wind for the second round in the fol
lowing order:
For the governor's cup?Dr. Lee Harban
vs. Britton. Dr. Gray vs. Dr. W. S. Har
ban. Andrews vs. E. P. Brooke, Carusl vs.
L W. Weaver.
Consolation matches?McCammon vs. Du

vs. Waggamnn, Pyle vs. Lanston.
Capt. Lee Harban's Fine Score.
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
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.

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.

Stock Market Was Weak
Again Today.
Rally in the Latter Started a Buying
Movement Later in the
NEW YORK. October 9.?The stock mar
ket showed considerable weakness soon
after the opening today. New low records
were made In I'nited States Steel common
and Amalgamated Copper. The former,
which closed yesterday at 13, opened down
at 14%. declined to 14%, then rallied a little.
The previous low record for this stock was
14%, which was made yesterday, and also
several weeks ago. The sales were not
heavy. Steel preterred opened 1% down at
<11% and reacted % further, rallying later
above (S2, after which It ran oft again.
Amalgamated Copper, which again was the
most active issue for a time, opened with
large sales all the way from 30% 10 33%.
and after temporary steadiness declined to
34% by the end of the tlrst hour. The previ
ous low level before today was 35-'>s. yester
day. Various other industrial shares also
were weak.
Most of the leading stocks touched their
lowest price in the first hour of the opening
dealings. Full recoveries were made by
some of the sj>ecialties, and Atchison. Hal
timore and Ohio. 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. General Electric de
clined 2 points and Westingliouse Electric 3.
The market continued heavy and sank to
a somewhat lower level. Reading, ('nion
Pacillc, Wabash preferred, St. Louis South
western preferred. Southern Railway pre
ferred, Brooklyn Transit and a number of
others fell 1 to 1% below last night. Read
ing second preferred dropped 4. and Ameri
can Agricultural Chemical 3%. There was
a slight improvement before noon.
Bonds were heavy.
A halt In the liquidation of the low-priced
specialities was followed by a rather gen
eral recovery of the ground lost in the
morning selling. A few railroad stocks
rallied substantially, notably Union Tat-ilic,
Pennsylvania and New York Central.
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.
Speculation was quite dull and the market
followed the fluctuations of Amalgamated
A rally in that stock to 35Va caused buying
of other specialties and recoveries of 1 to 2
points were numerous. Some of the western
stocks ruled a good fraction above yester
day's close. Including Atchison, Missouri
Pacific and St. Paul.

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.

Compromise Effected, Strike Ends.
A compromise was this morning effected
In the strike of the union upholsterers In
the employ of the firm of W. B. Moses &
Sons by which the workmen will return to
work tomorrow morning. The upholsterers
demanded a reduction In the hours of la
bor on the ground that It would humiliate
them to toil nine hours for $3 per diem be
side onion cabinet makers and finishers
who are working but eight hours per day.
It was agreed that the hours of labor be
reduced, but that they shall only receive a
proportionate amount of pay. This agree
ment is binding until November 1 next,
when the union will demand $3 for a day's
work of eight hours. It Is said the em
ployers favor such a schedule.
