THE OMAHA DAILT BEE : FKTDAY , OCTOBER 14 , 1898.
I Prof. Moors and His Assistants Hold Counsel on Their Work. PUBLIC INTEREST IN THE SERVICE HOTT to Secure nnil Ilolil the Confi dence of the 1'eoiilr Value of to Mariner * on I < aken nnd Ocean * . r-J Fairly satisfied with the graft they worked upon the weather so far this week , Uncle Sam's weather men were content to settle down yesterday to transact the business for which they assembled In tbo city. They seemed to bear an air of relief , finding them' selves sitting In comfortable choirs at the Commercial club , after the push and jam and squeeze of the day before at the expo- nltlon grounds. There was a good attend ance , fully fifty representatives of the bureau , covering all sections of the country , being present. Prof. Willis L. Moore of Washington , chief of the bureau , called the meeting to order , and the esteem In which ho Is held by his co-workers was shown partially In the hearty greeting accorded him yesterday morning. After felicitating the weather men upon the work they are accomplishing , and the Interest they arc showing In the Improve ment and advancement of their profession. Prof. Moore came to matters closer home , and talked briefly of management of offices and qualifications of officials. In the course of his remarks on this subject ho said : We have n man at the head of the Agri cultural department who demands endorse ment by the weather officials of any measure ho In called upon to recommend for the bureau. Wo are fortunate In having nt the head of the weather service a man who holds the friendship of every officer In the bureau and who Is personally Interested In every one of his subordinates. I would call particular attention at this llrao to the Importance of maintaining dls clpllno In your office. Do not permit any assistant to como to you with complaints of the work of others. 1o not allow your wives to be drawn Into the -fight between subordinates. It Is not necessary to be harsh with vour men or to have stiff rules , but a dlsclollha can bo maintained which will bring harmony In the work to be per formed. U Is necessary for those In the weather service to bo students. Wo have outlined a course of study at the central office which It Is cxnccted the officials will pursue. The local forecast official Hbould be well versed In metaphysics and mathematics and br capable of making his reports In good English , that the standard of the bureau .be kept at the highest point. Trof. Cleveland Ahhe PrcHldcn. I'rof. Cleveland Abbe , who has been con nected with the weather bureau slnco 1 was established , being now a member o the Mlentlflc staff of the chief , was called to the chair. Ho was heartily cheered , bu declined to make a speech , calling at one for the first paper on the regular pro gram. "Relation Between the Weather Bureau and the Public" was the subject of a dls cusslon opened , by P. J. Walz of Baltimore "Tho mental and social qualities of th local official and his assistants , " ho said "largely gauge the standard of the bureau In the community. Under the present regu latlons the weather official may bccomi Identified with the community In which hi lives , and he should strive to become an honored member of society. The locar office should bo centrally located that 1 may bo readily accessible to the public , The official should visit the public school anil encourage the study of meteorology that pupils will be able to read the weathe maps for themselves. " O. N. Salisbury of Seattle , Wash. , , fol lowed on the same subject , and said : "Th weather bureau service IB now looked upon with moro confidence by the public than ever before. To the uninitiated the slg nal service was for a long time a mystery but the public learned that signal officer could bo like other men. While ridicule o the service still exists , confidence has grow rapidly. It grow when hundreds of ; shlpi were saved at sea on the prediction of coming storm , nnd when n killing fros was successfully forecasted. Under the liberal policy of the present administration the bureau Is widening Its work and I coming In closer touch with the public am particularly ore the ngrlcutural classes be Ing drawn nearer to the weather service although there always will bo men who wll' farm according Co their own Ideas and not to those suggested by Jho government. " * Prof . Moore took up the reference to the signal service and mentioned the repeal of a law at the last congress which gave the chief signal officer the right to step In nnd take charge of the weather bureau under certain conditions. This statement was applauded , as was -the further statement that General A. W. dreeloy , chief signal officer , endorsed the repeal. By a rising vote the convention passed n resolution congratulating General Greelcy and his corps upon the excellent work during the late war. war.Wind Wind on the InUcs. Mr. Palmer of Chicago read a paper by II. J. Cox of Chicago upon the value of the weather service on the great lakes. "Navi gators , " the paper alleged , "havo now reached n period where they depend upon the warnings Issued by the bureau. The accuracy of these warnings are most essen tial , especially as to direction of the wind. A speed of thirty-flvo miles from Che north after a few hours on Lake Superior will make navigation Impossible , while a speed of fifty miles from the south will cause no interference. Send out no warnings un less the conditions warrant the belief that the coming wind storm will bo daugeous to marine Interests. Wo are BO fitted In Chicago that wo can get the ? warnings to 100 points In the city within a few moments. " N. B. Concer ot Detroit asked "leave to print" for bis paper , and only gave a synop sis of U , bearing upon the Importance of determining the direction from which the wind comes , holding with Mr. Cox that n high speed from ono direction which would be destructive on the lakes would not cause alarm If It came from another direction. Mr. Conger also gave an Interesting sketch | | ot the Important work ot the bureau along tbo great lakes In furnishing ship masters at all Important points along their journey with the latest conditions ot the weather. The value of warnings on tw ! Atlantic and gulf coasts was discussed by John W , Smith of Boston , who salt ! the present serv ice by the bureau on the coast was satis factory to ship owners and they had no Im provements to offer. They had , however , heartily commended the service , and ad mitted U had saved an enormous amount of f property and countless lives. He advocated the substitution ot conei , drums , spheres , etc. , for flags for coast signals , as they were more readily seen by the men at sea. Prof. Moore at this time said the local officials were encouraged to ' telegraph the central office In quiring ns to forecasts. This was to apply especially when there were conditions ap parent that the forecast would not conform to the facts as to the weather. Alex Q. McAdle of New Orleans thought there were too many signals , Ha said the red and black flags were good ones , but | t the white was not. The hurricane signal j was also a good one. Many other signals > , " lie felt , might be substituted by * the use ol f the Information signal , which notified ship , owners that the office bad Information ol value to them , and they should come and , get It. Other sUoal men alone the coast tool part In the discussion , urging the Impor tance of an accurate direction signal , which will correctly and promptly Indicate any coming change In the direction ot the wind , and glvo on Idea ot the probable velocity of the coming wind. The adoption ot the cone and drum signals In place ot flogs also found moro advocates. Immediately upon reassembling the con vention voted to have a picture of all the weather men In a group , from the front of the court house building. 1C. A. Beats of Cleveland , 0. . dealt with the relations of the Weather bureau with the press. Ho said there was no calling so exacting as that of the weather service because ot the publicity given by the press. "No prediction of fair weather , " he said , "could be knocked Into a cdcked hat by a hard , shower without each drop of water bringing a sting to the sensibilities of the forecaster. " Ho said the weather office was a fruitful Odd for news , but that the local official too often failed to understand the public value of the material ho possessed , nd thereby misses an opportunity to further ic work of his office. Prof. Abbe regretted that BO much Bcnsa- lonallsm was allowed to find Its way into lie press with so little truth for a founda- Ion , bearing upon weather matters. Prof. Moore said there was much In pro- enttng weather news In a readable manner , nd added that the central office was now rylng to prepare Its reports In a newsy manner , avoiding as tar as possible all that s technical. The following resolution was adopted by rising vote , with applause , and tele- _ raphed to St. Louis , where Secretary Wll- 011 went with President McKlnlcy : The Weather bureau officials of the De- lartment of Agriculture , ki convention as- cmbled at Omaha. October 13. express ncli ; official appreciation nnd personal affec Ion for him whoso excctlvo ability nnd nate kindness of heart have done so much o extend the usefulness of the Weather Bureau and to raise the standard of Its per sonnel. Wo extend greeting to Hon. James Vllson , secretary ot agriculture. A. F. Sims of Albany , N. Y. , read a paper advocating the teaching of meteorology In he schools , and the discussion of It by bus ness men at their luncheons and at the clubs , all of which would tend to improve he service of the bureau and bring It nearer o the people. Vnlac to Ilnlntii ( Jrowoi-n , W. II. Hammon of San Francisco Intro duced a paper on "Possibilities of the Weather Service on the Pacific Coast , " which 10 did not read but asked that It bo referred .o a committee ot three for Investigation , as the paper treats on long range prediction , and the speaker said If there was anything u his theories It was of great importance to California. Mr. Hammon then , at the request of Prof. Moore , told of the rain warnings In the raisin Industry In California. He said they sent these reports out from six to twcnty- 'our hours In advance ot the rain and only once In five years has a shower como with nut warning. He nald the raisin growers have their plantations connected by wires and that within an hour after the observer Ratlsfles himself the rain Is comtcrj these growers all have that Information , and so reliable has It been In the past the growers iavo come to rely upon It entirely , admitting that It saves them $1.000.000 a year. Prof. Moore scld'lt had been the dream of the , meteorologist to bo able to success fully make long range predictions , but ho declared there was no ono at the present tlmo who courd do EO , and these who pre tended to do It were frauds and charlatans If It over did como to bo a fact , ho said It would bo through study and Investigation along scientific lines by men engaged In the weather service. He said Mr. Hammon hoc given mud. attention to this work and he olntcd as a committee to study.the paper introduced by' Mr. Hammon the following I'rof. Abbe and Prof. H..A. Hazcn of Wash' Ington , J. Warren Smith of Columbus , 0. : H. J. Cox of Chicago and Q. N. Salisbury of Seattle , Wash. B. S. Paguo of Portland , Ore. , said tha they have been making seasonal predictions In the northwest and for five years had no failed of verification. But the conditions there were more favorable for such work than clsowhero In the country. Ho die not think general long distance forecasfins would como about before a caMe line hue been laid from the United States to Honolulu lulu , Japan , China , along Siberia , across to Alaska and down to the United States again He closet ) by saying that the , rlver fore casts In Portland saved the business men ot that city from $100,000 to $500,000 a year Coiicc-rnliiir Cold AVnvo. On the matter of giving warnings o northers F. II. Brandenburg of Denver Bah It was difficult to give these warnings long In advance , owing to changing conditions If the observer waited until definite sign appear , the cold wave travels so fast tha rarely over twenty-four hours' nollco can bo given of Its approach. He gave a fe\ conditions upon which an observer might forecast a cold wave some time In advance. B. J. Glass ot Helena , Mont. , Bald the most dangerous cold wave In that st'ito was that Immediately preceded by abnormally warm weather , which usually was accom panied by severe loss of sheep , but the growers were so situated they could not derive much benefit from rhe warnings. J. Warren Smith of Columbus , O. , thought transportation companies should bo In formed In advance ot the condition of snow upon the ground , whether It Is full of water or composed largely of Ice and whether the ground Is frozen , that they might be pre pared to decide whether a light or heavy rain would be required to produce a flood and cause washouts. T. S. Outram of Minneapolis read a paper on this same subject' ; J. n. Sago ot DCS Molnes and H. C. Tate of Nashville told of what classes are moat benefited by the forecasts ; Prof. H. A. Hazen of Washington , D. C. , nnd Patrick Connor of Kansas City discussed long range forecasts ; F. p. Chafteo of Montgomery , Ala. , and G. M. Chappel of DCS Molnes read papers on the distribution of the forecasts , and U. J. Hyatt of St. Louis presented a paper on the river and Hood service. The convention then took a recess to have a group photograph taken of the delegates. \VeatIirr Men nt Table. The weather men partook of a banquet at the Millard hotel , which was a very pleasant - ant function. Previous to entering the ban quet room Mrs. Willis L. Moore , wife ot the chief of the Wcathsr bureau , held , an Informal reception In the parlors , which all attended. The tables were ranged on three sides of the dining room , ths special guests of the evening and these assigned to toasts occu- ' I'ylng the ono acres the west end of the room , facing the others In attendance. Prof , Willis L. Moore , chief of the Weather bu reau , occupied a place at the center of this table. At his right was Colonel J , H. Brig- ham , assistant secretary of agriculture and president of the government exposition commission - mission , and at his left was Senator Thurs- ton. Other guests , aside from the weather officials , w re : B. Hoaewater , ex-Governor Packard , formerly ot Ioulslana ; Congressman - man D. H. Mercer , S. F. Woodbrldge , who was a schoolmate and old-time acquaintance of Prof. Moore , and E. W. Caldwell of the Sioux City Times. In the middle of thli principal table , rest- ; lt' Ing upon a marble slab , were two Oregon j | salmon , eerved whole , and embellished with a skill betokening an artistic chef. The fish weighed thirty-four and thirty-six pounds renpectlvely , and were brought on for the occasion by W , S. Pague of Portland. The tables contained tokay and muicat grape i , , apples , peaches and plums , which were also ' brought from Oregon by Mr. Pague. The dining room wsa decorated opproprl- ately for the event , the- wall * being draped with flags , all of which arc used as weather and temperature signals by the bureau. At 0 o'clock the doors of tbo dining room were opened , and the gucstn filed In , and an oven hundred took places at the table. After duo justice had been done to the menu , at 11:05 : o'clock Prof. Moore called for or der. In his Introductory remarks ho drew a parallel between the conditions of today and three centuries ago. He referred to the exposition as a copy ot the World's Fair , and said oil nature had conspired to make the enterprise a success. Ho referred , to the late war , and said the American people were now casting their eyes upon foreign Islands without a view to widening out their benefi cent civilization. Ho drifted to the depart ments of this government , which led him to the weather bureau and Its work , and the value of the property gnved through the warnings Issued by this bureau. Colonel J. II. Blnghnm , assistant secretary of agriculture , was Introduced and salil this department was created as the result ot a long-continued fight made by the farm or ganizations of the country. H was Intended .s n means Indirectly ot securing a practical ducntlon for the boy who desired to fit hlm- clt for n successful agriculturist. It was Iso deemed Important that this Important ndustry should have a place In the cabinet ounclls ot the nations. The Importance of .his Industry was shown by the fact that the aluo of the cropn of this country for one car multiplied by twelve would pay off the lational debt of every nation In the world , lo said the weather bureau was an 1m- jortantj part of the Agricultural department nd the best farmers depend absolutely ipon It Thiirnton Talk * . Senator Thurston spoke on "Nebraska Weather , " and said ho come to the banquet distressed with an awful drouth , but by the graclousness of the weather man ho had absorbed BO much moisture that he did not know what prediction to make for tomorrow , Nebraska , hd said , was placed In an unfor- unato position on the map , for It was bounded on three sides by dry states. The state has been afflicted at times with hot wlndw which usually come under political ondlllons. Give the state good weather and t will furnish everything ) else. It will pro duce enough corn to supply the world , nnd have enough surplus left to make whisky 'or all our people. Wo have had bad years , but that was before the weather men had become accustomed to their places. It was d weather when William McKlnlcy be came president of the United States ; It was good wmthcr when De\ty sailed Into ho harbor nt Manila ; It was good weather when Schley and Sampson pursued Cervera along' the Cuban coast nnd sent his fleet ivlth greetings to the Maine ; It was good weather when the American soldier , regu lar and volunteer , white and black , charged the hill at San Juan ; and there Is good weather wherever the stars and stripes flut ter in the breeze. The senator closed with a brilliant pero ration and the banqueters arose to their feet nnd waved their handkerchiefs , closing with three cheers for the speaker. "Tho Press and the Weather Bureau" was the toast assigned to E. Uosewater , and ho said he 'was the first weather observer west of the Missouri. In 18C3 he was requested 'by ' Prof. Henry of the Smithsonian Institute to make reports on the weather conditions n the territory between Omaha and Salt Lake City. Being manager of the Atlantic and Pacific Telegraph company the task was not so great as It might seem. Weather observers now days are more sensitive than their barometers. When the press says any thing their temperature rises until some times they become Intemperate. The press tries to be fair and glvo weather bureau notices a place at the top of column next to reading matter , and will do so as long as the weather officials continue to draw thor | salary , The charge Is sometimes made that Jho press Is like the wcathomlbureau n that it misrepresents matters. This Is not true , because you never saw a lying newspaper ; but the work of the two is so similar that both have frequently been classed asfakirs. - . However , when the weather men make their next observation they will find that the press Is their friend. John U. Sage of Des Molnes then talked of "The Weather Bureau and the Press. " He said ho had been Impressed today by the beauty of the day , but ho fcareed tonight that the people living In the Millard , and trying to sleep , would think It peculiar , with the weather men In the city , that the beautiful day should be followed by such a squall. The press Is only mentioned once In ocrlpture. That was when the Di vine healer was among the people , and the lepers , the lame and the halt , sought to get to Him to touch the hem of Ills gar ment , but could not because of the press. Ho had been engaged In the work of the press In the years past , but had since re formed and was trying to lead a better life. It requires education , knowledge and reading to be n good editor , and after serv ing In the field for years some of them take a step higher and enter the weather service , while others step downward and go to congress. Seriously , bo said , the only marvel' Is that the people have done so long without the service of the weather bureau as It Is developed today. "American Citizenship" was1 assigned to Congressman I ) . II. Mercer , , and ho said It was embarrassing to have a toast of such India rubber characteristics. This subject had been exploited diirlng the past ninety days In two directions and no ono could tell where the ends wculd meet. Ho predicted that It the supply of McKInleys , Doweys , Sampsons and Schfeys would hold out Amer ican citizenship would discover the north pole and melt the south pole. Ho compli mented the weather officials on having given Omaha moro kinds of weather on President's day than ho had ever seen before , but prom ised to do good work. Whenever they wanted an appropriation' they could call on him. Prof. Cleveland Abbo of Washington re sponded to "Science , Pure and Applied , " and after him'others spoke. The clock Indicated the hour of 2 before the banquet was called to a close. Buy your exposition tickets down town. In another column see dlsnlav advertisement of the places where tickets are on sale.

Lawrence , a showman , made an un successful attempt lastvnlght to commit sui cide In his room at the State hotel , 1312. ' , Douglas street. Lawrence came to Omaha i from Now York and moro lately frora Chicago - cage and has been leading n more or less precarious existence In the city for the last four months. For a week he has been drinkIng - Ing heavily and upon the exhaustion of his funds became partially sober and entirely despondent. Ho had an empty revolver In his room and from some unknown sourca borrowed a single cartridge which ho placed In the chamber. Lawrence went to his room about C o'clock and a tow minutes later the guests of the house were alarmed by the report of a revolver. The clerk made an In- vcstlgatlon and found Lawrence lying on the bed with his face covered with blood and the empty revolver beside him. | The police station was notified and a sur- gccn was at once In attendance. It was found that Lawrence -endeavored to press the nozzle against his temple , but either from accident or lack of nerve bad directed the weapon obliquely and the bullet had struck a glancing blow. The ball entered near the right ear and emerged above the eye without having done serious damage. After dressings had been applied Lawrence was removed to St. Joseph's hospital. Lawrence would give no explanation for the attempt upon his life except that he was MARIAM WINE The World-Famous Tonic.

DEAD BODY FOUND IN MANGER Unknown Mnn Crntvlx Into the Plncc mill Dion Sonic Time Uur- Injr the Dny. Doubled up In a manger In a stable In the rear of 1108 Farnam street the body of an unknown man was found yesterday. The man. was dead , but Just how long It had been alnco he expired Is not known. He was not there yesterday morning when the driver for J. IlaUliberg , who owns the stable , took out his team. Later In the morning some boys discovered the man there and reported the fact to a policeman , who sup posed from appearances the man was simply drunk. Later It was found the man had died , and the coroner was summoned and the body taken to the morgue. There were no marks of violence on the body or anything to indlcato the cause of death. The dead man' was apparently a laborer about 45 years of ago , and the only thing which affords a clew to his Identity la a small book In his pocket on which was written the name , 0. Hawn. The remains were identified last evening by George Hoffman , a livery man who con ducts a stable at Eighteenth and St , Mary's avenue , as those of Curtis Hawn , a hostler who had been In his employ for' ' three weeks prior to last Friday , when ho was discharged for drunkenness. Nothing Is known of Hawn'a antecedents. An In quest will bo held on the remains .today. HELD FOR SHOOTING TO KILL nick VVar.llovr , Who Wantonly "Wounded DriiKKlit Ornliiini , IN , Ilouml Over to Ulntrlct Court. "Dick" Wardlow , the young man who shot and almost killed .Howard B. 0 rah am. the druggist , In his store , Twenty-fourth and Farnam streets , four weeks pgo , durlug the daring holdup of the druggist , was given his preliminary hearing yesterday afternoon. It resulted In his discharge on the charge of robbery and his being held to the dis trict court In bond ? of $2,000 on the charge of shooting with Intent to kill. Wnrdlow's discharge on the robbery charge was duo to a faulty complaint. Druggist Graham on the witness stand testified that the money stolen waa taken from the cash register and not from his person. On this testimony Attorney Drltt for Wardlow asked for his client's discharge on the grounds that ! ho had not committed robbery Inasmuch > as' ' I hp took nothing of value from Graham's person. County Attorney Herring admitted the complaint bad been wrongly drawn and i Judge Gordon discharged Wardlow. I ' Resides Druggist Graham five other wlt- | ' nesses were examined. They were Officers M. J. Sullivan and J. Barnes , who cap- , I tured Wardlow after a running light ; Meyer Klein , a citizen who had seen Wardlow running with a companion ; Jailor Marshall , who Identified Waidlow'a revolver , which' ' I he took from him after his arrest , and Cap-j tain Mostyn , who "sweated" Wardlow. Druggist Graham's wound has entirely' ' healed. A long scar across his chin from the left side of his mouth and extending half way along h ! right Jawbone marks the furrow made by the bullet from Wardlow's revolver. From the witness stand ho'posi tively Identified Wardlow as the man who shot him. CoiiMtnlilcH After IJiich Other. Conrtables Alvln R. Hensel and Charles W. King are on the warpath for each other.
