BOARD OF REGENTS.
Tn*n*i»cted Coualderable Bu#lnf<« Hn
lnteroHtlne anil Important Nature.
Special to the Register.
Morgantown, \V. Va.. June S.—The
Resents have created a very favorable
impression by the manner in which
they are applying themselves to the
study of the needs of the University.
A meeting of the Board was held last
Thursday, and a second meeting was
held to-day. the interval being given
up to committee work. The commit
tees appointed were as follows:
On Reports of Presidents. Instructors,
and Director of the Experiment Sta
, tion—Messrs. Brown. Campbell and
Powell.
On Reports of Auditor and Treasurer
—Messrs. Kunst. Campbell and Mc
Mahon.
On Mechanical Department and j
Grounds and Buildings—Messrs. Lee,
Atkinson and Sturgiss.
Reports were rereived to-day from
each committee but the second, and all
the recommendations made by com
mittees were concurred in by the Board.
The Dean of the Agricultural College
recommended the purchase of another
farm for experiments in dairying and
cattle raising, and the Board took ad
verse action. This was done for the
two-fold reason that the funds are in
adequate and that the Pennsylvania
experiment station is working upon
these features. As it is a contiguous i
State. West Virginia may profit by the
experiments in Pennsylvania, and this
State will devote more attention to ex
periments in grain, and sheep and
fowl raising. There were so many oth
er recommendations in the report of
Dr. Myers that it was referred back
to the Board by the committee.
The Board takes the position that
the limited funds at its disposal should
he expended in elevating the standard
of the University proper, along the lines
of scientific and classical courses rath
er than the agricultural. Provision
was made for an additional chair in
the department of applied sciences. The
Chair of Psychology. Logic and His- ,
tory has been divided into Psychology, i
Logic and Ethics, and History. Polit
ical Economy and Social Science. The
recommendation of President Good
knight that the Commercial School he
made a department of the University,
was not approved. Judge Campbell of
fered a resolution providing for an art
school, for instruction in painting and
music, which shall not be a distinctive
department of the University. Both
the Commercial and Art Schools will
eventually be made departments.
\n appropriation of $7,500 was mad'
for an addition to University hall, and
provision whs also made for certain
improvements to the building and
equipment cf the mechanical hall.

A Match Carelessly Dropped in M.
Shure’s Fireworks Factory, in
Chicago, Does Immense Damage.
Rockets, Candles and Other Ex
plosives Set Off — The Shock
Broke All the Glass in the Square
and Hurled Missiles in All Direc
tions—List of Injured.
Chicago, June 8.—A match carelessly
dropped by one of the workmen in the
tire works factory of M. Shure, at the
corner of West Van Buren and Hal
sted streets, caused a terrific explosion
a few minutes after •! o'clock to-night.
It was shortly after the closing time
of the factory and many of the work
men had gone home, otherwise the loss
of life must have been very heavy. As
it was, a number of the employes were
badly hurt and the flying rockets and
candles struck several people who
were passing on street cars and on the
sidewalks. Following is the list of the
injured:
Mrs Maggie Kenny, struck by a run
away horse, bruised and cut: Miss Min
nie Theuey, bruised and cut; M. Shure,
proprietor fireworks factory, badly cut
by glass; Georgio Grant, cut by glass:
Mrs. Kate Grant, cut by glass; Obin
Lemper, cut on head by falling beam:
Fr d A. Stiles, motorman on passing

being thrown from his car: Andrew
Lawson, conductor on same train,
bruised by being thrown from car: C.
N. Smith, cut by glass while walking
on the street: Philip Shohard, struck
in back by sky rocket while on the op
posite side of the street: unconscious
and badly hurt; J. F. Harris, cut hv
glass: Edward Hayes, passenger on ca
ble car. head cut by falling glass;
Samuel Brasnik, tailor, jumped from
Balcony, leg broken: John Beckwaret,

glass wind aw into a saloon, badly cut.
'I'he following were slightly injured
by flying glass, but all are expected to
recover: Nellie Burke, Peter Bullett,
Ludwig Zisow, Frank Ilicke, Charles
Cardiff, Alpha Jones.
The force of the explosion w.s so
great that nearly all the windows in thp
block were demolished and the Shore
building, which is a four-story struc
ture. was badly damaged. Immediate
ly following the explosion the building
was ablaze from cellar to roof, and the
tire department had a desperate strug
gle before it succeeded iii extinguish
ing the flames. The building was al
most entirely destroyed by the fire,
however, and such portions of the large
stock of fireworks as had not been scat
tered throughout the neighborhood by
the explosion were destroyed, causing
a heavy loss to Shure.
The explosion caused a wild panic in
that portion of the town for a time,
a d the wildest stories were current re
garding the number of killed and
wounded. It happened at a time when
the streets were crowded with people ‘
on their way to their homes, and the !
street cars which pass the front of the
building every minute, were densely
crowded with passengers. 1 hey flyi.ig
missiles* from the factory struck a
number of people on the cars, and one
n who was gazing into a store win
dow fully 400 feet distant, had his at
tention suddenly attracted to other mat
ters by a rocket which hit him square
ly i.i the back. He fell to the sidewalk
unconscious and was carried to the hos
pital before he was able to give his
name. The majority of those injured
have received but trifling hurts and will
be around within a day or two. The
loss to the building and consents is es
timated at $60.b00.

Thorough Organization.
Chicago, June 8.—Thirty-two States
were represented at the first meeting
of the provisional committee of the
National Silver Republican party,
which met in executive session at the
Leland Hotel to-day. Besides the
committeemen of the various States
represented over a hundred silver Re
publicans were present from all parts
of the country.
The States represented were: Ala
bama. Arkansas, California, Colorado,
Connecticut. Delaware, Idaho. Illinois,
Indiana. Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Lou
isiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Min
nesota, Missouri. Montana, Nebraska,
New Jersey, New York, North Dako
ta, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsyl
vania, South Dakota, Utah, Washing
ton. Wisconsin, Wyoming and West
Virginia.
Promptly at one o’clock the commit
tee was called to order by ex-Congress
inan Charles A. Town#, of Minnesota.
Chairman Tov.ne in calling the com
mittee to order, said in part:
I give you greeting upon the aus
picious opening of this conference, and
congratulate you and the great cause
wherein we are engaged that so numer
ous and representative a body of men
has gathered from a large majority of
the States and Territories to participate
in the first general council of tho silver
Republican party of the United States.
We are happy also to welcome the in
spiring presence of a delegation rep
resenting the bi-metallir organization
of the women of the country whose
sympathies are enlisted as ever in be
half of justice and humanity.
After referring briefly to the circum
stances attending and the motives in
stigating the inception of the move
ment he spoke of the organization of
the provisional national committee at
the suggestion of the Republican Sena
tors and Congressmen. Continuing he
said:
“Our motives were these: We de
sire above all things else of immediate
political concern the speedy re-estab
lishment in the United States of true
bimetallism; the same privilege of free
coinage at the mint for both gold and
silver and absolute equality between
them in all money power, when coin
ed. with the option to every payer,
whether the government or an individ
ual. to choose what coin shall be the
basis of payment in every instance. We
wished to do all in our power to ad
vance this happy consumation. and we
realize that if this great cause is to
succeed in the elections of 18flS and 1000
it can do so only through the addition
to the allied armies of C.000.000 that
followed the banner of the joint stand
ard in ISO*; of at least some hundreds of
thousands of the Republicans of that
contest.
“We have other plans or may have,
and we believe in other things also;
but the restoration of silver as basic
or primar\‘ money along with gold is
the first and engrossing object of our ,
activity, and shall remain so until the
crescent of promise sha.l have rounded
into the full orb of success.
RAW COTTON
Plared Upon the Durable List for
First Time in Tar ff History.
Washington, June 8.—By the deci
sive vote of 42 to 19 the Senate to-day
adopted an amendment to the tariff
bill placing raw cotton, the great pio
duct cf the South, on the dutiable list
at 20 pei* cent, ad valorem. It is the
first time in the history of tariff legis
lation that a duty on eofton has been
incorporated in a bill.
The amendment Vas proposed by Mr.
Bacon (Dem., Ga.,) on his individual
responsibility and without the appto\al
of the finance committee, which thus
far has been requisite to the success
of every amendment except a minor
one. which went through by default.
The amendment led to a spirited de
bate. Democratic Senators disclosing a
wide difference of views and at times
exchanging sharp personal criticisms.
On the final vote six Democrats. Bacon
and Clay, of Georgia; McEnery. of Lou
isiana; Mcl^aurin and Tillman, of South
Carolina, and Rawlins, of Utah, voted
with the Republicans for the Bacon
amendment, while the negative vote
was solidly Democratic, with one ex
ception. Kyle. Populist. The debate on
cotton took up most of the day and but
little progress was made on the bill.
Early in the day the sugar schedule
was passed over and the agricultural
schedule taken up. The paragraph on
cattle went over, but the balance of the
agricultural schedule up to and in
cluding paragraph 22S, was agreed to
as reported, all amendments except |
that of Mr. Bacon's being rejected. |
THE NEXT QUESTION.
If llulz Was Murdered, What Will the
United States Do About It?
Washington, June 8.—Assistant
Secretary Day said to-day that the re
port of Consul General Lee upon the
results of the investigation made in
Havana in the Ruiz case had not yet
been received at the State Department.
Consequently it was not possible to
learn whether the publications pur
porting to be copies of the report were
accurate. Assuming, however, that
the Consul General's conclusions are
correctly set forth, in brief that Ruia
died while in jail in violation of his
treaty rights, the question before the
department of the largest importance
is. what shall be the next step The
wife of Ruiz has filed with the depart
ment a claim for $1.10,000 for the death
of her husband. The Spanish conten
tion has been that he was not killed
and that he was not treated harshly.
THE SPANISH MISSION.
The Cabinet Spends Several Hour* DUciis
mIub It—Calhoun May Accompany McKln
lev in Xurtlivtlle.
Washington, June 8.—The cabinet
meeting to-day lasted longer than us
ual. The Cuban situation was discuss
ed in a general way, but the mest im*
portant subject presented was the Span
ish mission. The availability of three
men for this important post at Madrid
was carefully canvassed, but no decis
ion was reached. One of the cabinet
officers said after the meeting that the
selection was still open and will now
go over until the Presidents return
from the Nashville trip. It may be
that the non-appearance of Mr. Cal
houn may have had something to do
with postponing action to-day. If Mr.
Calhoun does not have an opportunity
for a talk with the President before
Mr. McKinley’s departure at noon to
morrow, lie will be invited to accom
pany the President on his trip. A
berth has been reserved on the train
to lie placed at his disposal in case
he joins the Presidential party.

Given livening.
Last night the last of this half year's
concerts by the Philharmonic Quar
tette took place. A representative au
dience was present and added interest
to the excellently rendered programme.
It was the introduction of the coming
violinist. Henry Weiler, aged 13. whose
talent has been developed to its pi«s
ent stage by Prof. Hermann Schockey.
To the family of Rev. Gustav Weiler,
pastor of the German Methodist Church,
to Prof. Schockey and to the Philhar
monic Quartette does musical Wheeling
extend congratulations for this discov
ery and bringing to public notice that
Henry Weiler has genius. His playing
of the 6th Air Varie. by De Beriot,
proves it. and his career from now on
will be watched with sincere interest.
The other soloist of the evening was
a member of the Quartette, Prof. Ed
ward Blumenberg. who as usual dis
tinguished himself. The selection was
a “Cavatina.” by Hollaender, for viola,
and it was so rendered that two recalls
were the awards. Apart also from the
quartette work proper was die “Inter
mezzo Symphony.” violin, cello and
piano trio. It was exquisitely played,
and an encore given by a really enthus
iastic audience was responded to with
a second rendering. Three quartettes
made up the remainder of the pro
gramme. and aTl were most intelligently
and beautifully interpreted. The time
will hang heavy for the lovers of these
delightful chamber concerts during the
interim, but when October comes a
most enthusiastic greeting will be given
the performers and the originators of
this series of concerts. _^_—

AN ECCENTRIC MILLIONAIRE.
.Joseph Richardson Dies Worth Twenty
.Millions—Lived in a House Five Feet
Wide.
New York. June 8.—Joseph Rich
ardson, an eccentric millionaire, died
here to-day. He made his fortune in
railroad building and was closely asso

Ho constructed large sections of the
Union Pacific, Missouri Pacific, Iron
Mountain and Mexican Central rail
roads. He came as a poor boy from
England. Mr. Richardson’s fortune
has been estimated at $20,000,000. He
dressed more like a tramp than a
wealthy man and lived and died in a
house which was only five feet wide.
This place lias been called the “spite”
house. It was built because the sur
rounding property owners refused to
meet Mr. Richardson’s terms for the
narrow lot. He afterwards refused fab
ulous sums for the little piece of ground
on which his house stood amid the tall
houses on the best part of Lexington
avenue.
His greatest aversion was to seeing
his name in print.
