mated in this country, In Congress, fa an Amer

to prevent tbo loading of vessels on (bo inkoa

from being ao overladen, and human lives uro

Jnno Miller, which arrived here at noon today
from Club Island, Imd on hoard four of the crew
of the lust schooner llcgitm who survived tho
wreck.' She picked them Up at Lion's Hoad,
whore they had been located for several days.
Tho mute, John Young, gives tbo following par
ticulars of tho schooner's loss: Sunday last, tbo
wind south ami light. It freshened somewhat
at u p. m„ with frequent squalls from
tbo southwest. At 8 p. m. wo sighted Covo
Island light, hearing north by cast, the wind
shifting to westward and blowing n gale. At It)
p. m. tho davits were curded away by tho boat
undewung tothopalnteruatcrn. AtDUO we made
the reef of the mainsail to. clour tho light.
Finding tuo vessel laboring heavily and making
water fust we boro up and run fur Cove Island
beach. As she made water so fast she got be
yond control and was sinking, tho Captain gave
orders tor tho men to lake to the
bout to save their lives. All hands
succeeded in reaching the :huut except tho Cup*
tain, who was at the wheel. As ho caught the
main boom bo hung to it, but tho ilfu*buat being
half full of water, and having only one oar, we
were unulilo tu render him any assistance or
reach him. Wo chon ran tho yawl for Capo Hurd
Passage. Thu Captain when last seen was cling
ing to tho wreuk and culling for assistance, wo
made Flower-Pot Island at DlkJ Sunday morning,
und lay down In tbo bush to rust tilt daylight.
About 8 a. in, n vessel passed, but was
tuo fur itwuy lo bo signaled.. At oa. tu. wo
started to meet another boat with tho yawl, but
tho signal was not answered. Wo then made for
tho mainland, which was reached about H a. m.
Sunday, Finding no Inhabitants, wu made for
Cabot's Head, wuore wo arrived at 0 p. in., hav
ing then to travel to I,bin's Head, where wo took
the propeller Juno Miller, Tho names of tho
saved men aro Lawrence, tho cook; John
Young, tho am to: lly Haight and William Ver
non, seamen. Thu vessel now lies about four
miles otf Covo Island, with her topmast above
water. Mr. Foster loft again this afternoon for
tho scene of tho wreck and entertains slight bones
that ho may be able to raise tho vessel. Tho
Captu.ii, Amos Tripp, Is now the only missing
omi, and sotnu Ilshenmm who arrived hero today

United dtutee Kuglnoer Corps. In charge of Uov
eminent Harbors on bakes Superior and Michi
gan, arrived on the Manistee Wednesday even
ing from Ontmmgon. MaJ. Uobort spent Th urs
day examining tho docks and harbor, gaining by
personal observation such Information us he
requires to settle tho 'ideation of dredging bosldo
solid and pile docks. Ho was greatly pleased
with what bo saw, and gives It us his opinion
that all the water necessary for any purpose
can be bad any wboro In tho harbor by building
proper docks mid by dredgmg a übiumul
to the shore. Theta uro many harbors on
Duke Michigan where tno drift la greater
than in Ashland Harbor whore the
experiment of dredging channels has been suc
cessfully tried fur years and nmeliually demon
strated. The ere docks at Gsuauuba all curry
urtiliulnl channels, made by dredging. This Is
also true at Cheboygan, Manitowoc, Ahnupeo,
us well us many uf tho ports on the oust shorn
of bake Michigan. Maj. Hubert bus uo hesi
tancy In saying that Ashland has unu uf tho
Hue*t harbors on (he chum of lakes, and unu
that will nuud but lltllu improvement to make
It perfuel. Hu does not think there need be any
fears but wbut the channel system by dredging
will prove successful, and that ducks can bo
built cheaper man on almost any otbor harbor
on the lake. MaJ. Hubert was at (he opening of
the new look at tho Bault Hie. Marie Cauul,
watch ho speaks uf very highly."

wero present at HI o’clock, when tho body was
to have been called to order, they decided to do
nothing until others arrived.
Tbo convention reassembled at U o’clock with
President Stoddard in tho .chair. ,
An address of welcome, very brief, was road
by Mr. Donald J. Avery, of Chicago, in
which duo attention was paid to tho praise
worthy objects ut tho association and to
tba great uoss of Chicago. The expres
sions of grouting wora very hearty, and
uttered hi a pleasant and entertaining stylo.
Mr. Avery told tho visitors that thoy would bo
taken to tho fair, theatres, exposition, and va
rious places of Interest In the city, and also that
they would bo shown through tbo Town of Full
Tllo President made n short speech, in which
hosutntesied certain Important questions to bo
consMvred by tho convention, x'ho questions
were referred to a committee composed of
Messrs. Uimlnur. Wilson, and Stvnnutt.
While the committee were out Soorotary

The committee appointed to consider (be
President's suptfesUous made n report, which
recommended that tho questions sutfifeslcd bo
taken up one at a time, nml discussed by tho
convention, Thu report was adopted, and the
first question discussed was that of
associations. prevailing most oxf cnslvoly fu Obfo
and Pennsylvania. Mr. Movena bhUI there wore
a number of thuso! fraudulent insilniUonscar
rled on In Ohio, and mat tbclr plan of work was
to have some very old umu, who whs likely to
ale In unhurt tlmv. sign a number of blank Hppll*
cations for membership In duioront associations,
senurou policy In each ono for * .VKM or f W.UdJ,
and then sell those policies to persons who worn
willing to pay M«0 or *iM upicco for
them, clio blanks first being tilled
out so ns to mako thy purchaser tbo henollulnry
of tbo Insurance. The Attorney-General of
Ohio, Mr. Stevens said, bad turned bis attention
to tbo mailer, and announced that bo would
break up tbo business us soon us passible.
Among too most prominent of those robber
companies, tho gentleman said, was tbo Norm
Lewisburir Association of Ohio.
The President stated that It was also tbo prac
lieu of the ofileersef fraudulent associations to
gut men who wore within a few months of tbo
gmve to Insure thonwelvcs, und mako
tbc ollloers tbo beneficiaries. the olllcers
being willing to pay llburnlly for tho
vobeios, knowing that tnoy could collect thorn
by bleeding the innocent members by means of
assessments In (ho usual way,
Mr. I’oarson thought tbo convention should
pass emphatic resolutions denouncing fraudu
lent Insurance associations and warning citizens
against having anything to do with sucu organ
Mr. Avery said that thoro vrero ninny dlfllcul
ties surrounding too mutter of abollsulug such
organizations, Tbo laws were in many respects
mu sutllclontly sirliigetit to make It possible to
dotnvay entirely witn the sw'ludliugscoemos.
Mr. Plessner thought tbo regular associations
should all udnnt tho plan of not paying any In
surance policy wherein tbo bcnoilcUry Ulu not
in tbo premises—(hut Is, tbo beneficiary should
bo one who hud depended on tbo de
ceased fur euro or support. If this plan whs
carried out and tho public advised of It. than
people might know what kind «f association to
connect themselves with. Mr. Wilson asked how
It was that tbo fraudulent UHsuclatlons could
maintain ,u suillctunt membership to pay noil
deles, when tho olllecrs and rmgholdors wbo bled
tbo Innocent members carried on tbolr guilty
practices so openly mid boldly?
No one could answer this question satisfac
Tao President said that something should bo
douo at oueo to do away with those outrageous
practices. The fraudulent associations were
doing Immense injury to tbo legitimate ones,
peojilo arguing that thoro was nothing to pre
vent tbo olllcurs of any Insurance association
from bleeding members in tho manner described.
After some further discussion u committee
was appointed to draft resolutions and suggestn
remedy In tbo premises. Messrs, titevens, Gard
ner. mid I’lessnnr were appointed as tbo com

TUo regarding tuo endowment plan
of collpemtive laxurauco-wus it u proper plait?
—was next in order. No one wus ready to
speak ou ilio question, and It was (aid over for
tue time being. The iiuestioa of health In
surance followed tho same course. The fourth
question, “Should the lives of those who are
tar beyond tho age of 50 years be Insured on the
assessment plan except nt u very high rule}’*
wun not discussed. Thu few who participated
In tho discussion of this question agreed that
when mi old person was received Into
an association such n person should pay mi
assessment much larger than the aver
ages but there was some disagreement
regarding (ho matter of gradually Increasing
tho rate In proportion ns members grew older.
No dotlnU.actlon was taken by the convention
hi the premises.
At d o'clock tho convention adjourned for an
hour and a half.
Tho President staled before adjournment that
the members of tho convention had been In
vited to visit the Town of Pullman today, two
paiueo curs having been placed at their disposal
by Mr. Pullman. Tho start would bo mado

and architecture to commemorate tho great tiro
of 1871. Tbo committee having this mutter In
charge seem Id have been remiss In tholr duty,
and for some reason there has been no general
solicitation, either of tbo people or of business
men. to contribute to this object. It would cer
tainly bo greatly to the creditor Chicago to have
such a building eroded, aside from tho intrinsic
value of such a structure fur art and cdticn
„Upu«l purposes, and bo a llttlng recognition of
tab world's sympathies and help Jti the hour of
our soro distress. 1 nave found, In conversing
with some of our business-men. u strung clcsiio
that tbo euterprlso should succeed, one of thorn
saying to mo, this morning, Hint ho had not been
asked to give anything, but would respond will
ingly If usked to do so. Ills plan, which strikes
me as a good one. Is to have a building largo
enough to eontaiu u mngniUeont library and an
art ball, with a tower hi ono corner !JUU feet
high, provided with an elevator to curry visit
ors to tbo tup, from which a complete view of
tho city and lake could be obtained, ft would
be a Hunker Bill monument of the great event
In our history. This gentleman is ready to give
fI.UUd for such a building mii/ir/ierc iu tho city,
but will give fi.OOU to have It located in Dear
born l’ark~a point most easily accessible to the
citizens of ah tho divisions of tbo city, north,
south, and west. Mr. Kdltor, don't acspulr of

give us yuur strong aid In stirring us all up to
this good work, U.

To ths Editor of Tht CMmjo Trlbunr.
Ciiicaoo, dept. H.—l do not recollect having
souq any statement recently of tbo grounds on
which Prof. King bases bis opinion Unit when bo
gets well up into the higher regions at the air
be will tlnd eastern currents which will waft bl m
over sea and land at a rapid rate, but have It lm*
pressed upon my mind from something I have
read that bo bases this supposition of aerial cur*
rents on the theory that tbocxtcrnulatmosphnrc
surrounding the earth does not move us rapidly
as tbo earth Itself; but If tills bo his theory ho
will llnd himself mistaken if bo ever reaches
these high regions.
If It be true that the outside atmosphere In those
high regions Is retarded hy J'rloiion or contact
with tbo other or any other physical substance,
on leuviug tbo earth and golug upwards Into
space ho would find himself going the samo dl*
rootlon as the earth revolves, only at a slower
pace; hence Instead of going cast be would come
down. If ho camo down at all, west of bis point
of departure on the earth. Hut there can bo no
question that tho outside atmosphere rotates
with tbo earth, and fur tho reason that after wo
pass buyuud tho cunilnus of our earth’s
atmosphere luto celestial space there Is nothing
but the ether to retard tho ntmosphcrc and pre
vent Us rotation with tho earth, and tihisu who
are familiar with these things know Aul well
that a material so elastic that It will transmit
light waves at a velocity of JM.oOtf miles in a
second of time, or that Is so nearly nothing that
It will not retard tho movement of tho earth
through It to tho extent of ji second in a thou,
sand years, would offer very little resistance to
tho rotation nf tbo atmosphere, and hence wu
may reasonably conclude that It rotates with the
earth, and with little or no retarduilon nt the
outside. 0. I*. JUmi.ux.

evening m.'iuc three pens, which bo sent In a
letter—for which ho hud to pay nlnopenco post

the Improvement, hastened to Birmingham, and
had an Interview with Mr. Mason, who from
that time onward became tho solo maker of tho
peas sold under Perry's name. Tho trmlo at
first was of very modest proportions, the old
account hooks showing that in ihim and I'M)
orders woro executed by twenty nr thirty gross at
atlmu, from which tho eonconigrow imtlll Mr,
Mason became tbo largest penmaker In tho world.
In 18M twelve workpeople were employed In
Lancaster street, and III: pounds of steel woro
thought a largo mmntlty to roll for u week’s
consumption. In IST». toward tho close of Mr.
Mason’s connection with tbo works, nearly ft
thousand persons were employed, the quantity
of steel rolled every week for pcnnmking ex
ceeded three tons, nnd nhoutslxty tons of pens
warn constantly Ip movement throughout tbo
building. In one orolhor of the many stages of
manufacture. The significance of those ilgurrs
