He Says There is Ho Longer Iny Doubt of the Complete Success of the Enterprise. CAUSE FOR PAST SECRECY. Tlie Company Desired to .Get All of the Ponderous Machinery In Proper Shape Before Pnblic Tests Mere Made. ; SPECIAL TO THE EVENING NEWS. Niagara Falls, June 26. The success's ful test-of the big dynamo made yesterday afternoon at the power house I was the theme of conversation among I the electrical engineers here last night, j and is a! ill "being talked about today, f All of the , visiting electricians freely t expressed themselves as being confident i of the full success of the work. They say the test given yesterday was sufficient to prove beyond any further question of doubt that the Niagara Falls power will prove to be, and to do all that has been claimed for H. i Dr. Louis Duncan of Johns Hopkins' University and president of the Ameri-cn Institute of Electrical Engineers now Irs convention here, said last night: "The demonstration of the success of the work was complete In every way. All of the machinery worked to perfection and there is no doubt whatever that the enterprise will be carried to completion as has been mapped out. It is certainly the greatest work of the world in this direction." . "What do you saj as to transmission of the power?" he was asked. "That has been demonstrated to be quite possible and practicable In other countries and will be done here. The only question Is as to the matter of cost, and there is little, If any, doubt that power will soon be sent from here to neighboring points as cheaply, or cheaper, than It can be produced locally by-steam." ' Other men who gave similar opinions were Prof. William A. Anthony of New York. Dr. F. B. Crocker of New York, W. F. C. Hassen of San Francisco, A. E. Kennelly of Philadelphia, Dr. M. I. Pupin of New York and many others, any one of whom might be considered as an authority on the question. As one of these men said: "What ground Is there for questioning the certain success of this work when we have seen today power enough generated by one great dynamo to furnish all the power and light necessary for such a city as Utlca and with only a little more than half the capacity of the dynamo utilized at that? Think of What the result will be when we know that there are the facilities for 20 such dynamos on the American side and 40 on the Canadian side. "What we have seen today marks what might be termed the beginning of a revolution in the Industrial world. This demonstrates what may be accomplished all over the world In the way of producing and transmitting power. It means that a mountain cascade may be converted Into power that will give life and existence to a great Industrial - city miles away on the plains." Yesterday the officers of the Construction Company for the first time released the official reports of the officers and engineers. These reports and a complete history of the work from Its Inception to the test of the dynamo yesterday; have been printed in a special number of Cassler's Magazine of Engineering. All of the matter has been reviewed by the company and much of it is written by the engineers themselves. The publishers have been anxious to put It out for several months. but the company has held It back until now. This Is very slgnfloant, as It shows that there Is no longer anything tOTionceal-ana thafthe company , is ready to declare to the world the cer tain success or tneir undertaking. It was explained yesterday to the visiting engineers why there had been so much" secrecy as us What has been going on inside the power house for the last six mortths. It has been a very difficult and very slow task to get all of the ponderous machinery In proper "shape and the company preferred to have nothing said until everything had been thoroughly tested and the ma- :L chlnery could show beyond the possibility of a question what it could rtn . For example, the main shaft connect ing tne water wneei with the dynamo Is 140 feet long and with all of the massive , wheels that are attached to It and with the mighty weight of all this machinery It has been the work of months to get It In proper shape. Now, as the en-. glneers say, all they have to do is to go on wun me construction or additional dynamos In the great tunnel. Two of the 5000 horse power dynamos are nearly ready to be used and It Is only a question of time when there will d iu times as many m lull operation The large dynamo yesterdav was run. nlng most of the afternoon and some of the time produced upward of 3000 horse power. It was Indeed Interesting last night to listen to the talk of the electrical experts as they sat about the hotels and discussed what the great Falls power would do In the future. One of the New York men said: "When they get ready to take the 20,000 horse power to Buffalo It will be conducted over three wires probably of less than an Inch In diameter each. These little wires stretched through the country will not make any disturbance and but few people will have any Idea of the immense- power they will be - silently carrying along. They will have more power than 40 railroad locomotives and will have sufficient force, If properly applied, to break 10 of the wire cables such as are used on the Broadway cars tn New York. There Is al-. most no limit to the power that can, and In my opinion will be, produced at this point." - N, A Heat Wall Pocket. The NEWS has Just had printed some very neat wall pockets for newspaperi, etc. The face of a lovely child looks over a copy of an EVENING NEWS which she holds la her hands. It Is one of the neatest pieces of work in its line ever designed. Call and see them at the NEWS office. The price of the pocket Is only 10 cents. THEY HAYE BOUGHT THE YACHT.

William Finnegan Charged With Taking Mr, Boyce's Outfit at the Iroquois and Judge Kin; Tined Him $50, William Finnegan was arrested at his home on Main street near Northampton street last night by Detectives Walsh and Grassell of the Main Street Station on a charge of petit larceny. Earlier In the evening Finnegan had been at the Iroquois Hotel and was said to have stolen a satchel and umbrella belonging to G. W. Boyce, a traveling man. He was arrested on a description. When he was arraigned before Judge King this morning he was fined $50. FELL INTO A BARRELL Frederick W. Bosworth Bays the Atlas Be- fining Oompany Was RssponaiV.a "and" Wants $25,000T)amagea. Frederick W. Bofvworth is suing the Standard Oil Company before Judge Child and a jury In the Supreme Court today for J25.OO0 damages for personal injuries. lioa worth was formerly employed by the Buffalo Creek Railroad as a switchman. He was putting some cars into the Atlas Refinery in October, 1M4. High, beside the Buffalo Creek track at Frenatt street the oil company had sunk a large barrel lntr the earth. This barrel waa kept filled with water. Boaworth fell into it striking his stomach on the shimes of the barrel and rupturing himself. He claims that hla fall was due to the negligence of the company and that he will never Ije fit for work again. TO TRY THE BOSTON SYSTEM; It is Said the Mysterious Conference! of List Week Wtrs on a Change of Patrol System, One day last week the NEWS stated that Sunt. Bull had called all the police captains into his room one afternoon and had a long conference with them. What the talk was about no one would state. It was learned this morning that the Superintendent has for some time been figuring on an Improvement of the three-platoon system and to that end wants to try the Boston system, which consists in having the day men work 10 hours and the" mgnt men seven. -rms wouia nu out me 24 hours of the day very nicely. Whether It will be adopted remains to he seen. Horore tms system can te cnang-ed it will be necessary to change the law as now existing. Supt. Bull was seen regarding the statement that he was figuring on Introducing the Boston syBtem of patrolling the city and said there was nothlne at all in it. On July 1 the new Main Btreet squad of big men will go on duty. They will compare with the famous New York Broadway squad In point of size and emciency. . EMPIRE STATE ALL RIGHT.

Not While Park Su-per-in-tend-ent Mc-MU-lan's Wild Cat Is at Large. That little primer lesson tells the experience of William Morrison . and his dog on the Military Road yesterday afternoon when the dog saw a cat and started In to chase It. The dog did not know a wild cat had escaped from the park menagerie, nor did Mr. Morrison or he would not have tried to kick; the shape out of the cat when the wild animal patted his dog and sent him yelping Tonawandaward. The cat is a Pennsylvania wild cat. It Is young, but it is business-like. It was received In Buffalo on Monday, a gift from Mr. Charles Goodyear to the Park Zoo. When it was turned over to Superintendent McMillan he had prepared for It a nice wooden box with bars 2V4 inches apart. . He looked at the cat and he looked at the box and decided the bars were too close together for the cat to escape. That Is where Mr. McMillan erred. He knows a whole lot about wet hay, but when It comes to taking care of a wild cat and making allowances for the ductility of Its body he Is somewhere near the foot of the class. - .-- , The cat wa put into the cage and- admired by -Mr. McMillan, who left the animal" securely and safely housed. Tuesday morning Mr. McMillan went to look at the cat and found the cage empty. Only a hair or two on a couple of bars told the story of the cat's squeeze for freedom. The police were notified and orders were sent out to every police station to watch for the cat and kill It If necessary to capture It. It is safe to say that when the policemen learn of Mr. Morrison's experlence.the cat will be killed without any parley or pow-wow as to the method of its capture if it Is ever caught sight of. The park attaches have been searching through the park ever since the disappearance. The fact of the escape Is a joke on Supt. McMillan, but it is no joke to have a wild cat roaming through the park or around the city. The Pennsylvania wild cat Is an ugly customer. A full grown one will attack a man. This Is a young cat, but old enough to be dangerous to children. While the park attaches were scouring the park for the escaped animal and the police were keeping their eyes open for wild looking cats, William Morrison found the brute on Military Road and lost him again In very short order. The cat showed fight. Morrlsen lives in Tonawanda. and came to Buffalo yesterday to look at a piece of real estate on the Military Road which had been offered him. He brought his dog along with him. The dog is a mastiff of pedigree, but thekit-ten from Austin, Pa., took the fight out of him in one short round and the dog started for Tonawanda on a gallop. The dog saw the wild cat about the same time- the wild eat eawthe-dogi Now, no self-respecting dog, even a Tonawanda dog, would think for a moment of attacking a wild cat in the open. "But this dog didn't "know, you"kn6W, He hadn't been In Buffalo long He thought he knew a thing or two, But he didn't know right from wrong. So he tackled the wild cat. The cat made one strong, grand-stand play and caught the dog on the side of the jaw. The dog departed. Then Mr, Morrison went at the cat. He would kick the hide off Its back, but he didn't. Instead of that the cat ripped Mr. Morrison's trousers and scratched his leg, and was hunching down ready for more serious business when Mr. Morrison, seeing his mistake, followed the dog. No one knows whether the eat Is on Military Road yet or not, or whether It has gone back to the nark. It is more than likely, however, that It has gone back to the park. That 1 where it will likely be found now. There are trees and underbrush In the park which are congenial to the cat. So If you are walking in the park this afternoon or any other afternoon before the cat is captured or killed and something drops on your back from the trees above or Bprings at your throat from the bushes, don't wonder what It la, It is the cat. There are all SMfs of cats In the world. Out among the Polish people they are talking about the escape of the kocsar, while the few Russians here speak of It as the koshka. French refer to the animal as chat and the Italians as gatto. Of course everybody knows cats came originally from Egypt where they were the whole thing, so to speak. They were petted and made much of In the temples of the devout and the palaces of the rich. A man who didn't have a cat didn't cut much of a figure In society, ecclesiastically, politically, socially or morally. They embalmed their cats In those days and a man who killed a cat got the worst of the argument from a legal point of view. From Egypt oats went to Italy and so they were spread all over the world until they got to the United States, Just like the organs. They came over about the same time, too. Scientifically speaking, a cat belongs to the felidae family, which Is pretty large and multiplies rapidly. Any man who has a cat In the house is liable to find half a dozen of the genus fells domestics in a basket any morning. Wild cats are different from the rats whtch get the cream In' the morning. They are bigger and more ferocious. Scientists claim they are descencsvnts of the old Egyptian oats, and If that la so, the old-timers must have been holy terrors In their way and one cannot blame the Egyptians for showing them so much tenderness. In Europe they call wild cats Fells Catus. In this country where wild cats arc numerous the people call them "varmints" and "devils ". and all that sort of thing. But no matter what kind the wild cat is called, the faot remains that the animal is dangerous and a mighty good fighter. A glance at the category will show einyone that there are all kinds of cats.. In England they call a gossiping, shrewdlsh woman a cat. Then there is the cat-o'nlne-tails in use on the seas and the old time warriors used what they called a cat to defend the battlements from assault. This was a big framework of wood, full of sharpened spikes. When an assaulting party a-pronched the walls this cat waa dropped on their heads. Buffalo gentlemen who play faro or who have.heard of the game, will be In-terestdin learning there Is a cat in that pastime also. A cat in faro Is when two of the last three cards In the box happen to be of the same denomination. A cat in plastering is the first coat of mortar which Is plastered over the laths. Then there is the cat boat too. Aesup tolls a tale of the cat In the meal which has become a general saying whn one wishes to refer to one who Is hiding his Identity for a purpose. A lie told by a perwm who did not originate - its called a-cat-in-pan. Of course, you have all heard of cat-fish. They are productive of wonderful tales of fishing pn the Mississippi where they are said to grow to be eight and 10 feet in length and weigh a hundred pounds or more. "Enough to mnke a cat laugh," and "grinning like a Chessy cat." come from this passage in Alice in Wonderland: "Please, would you tell, me," said Alice, a little timidly, "why your cat grins like that?" "It is a Cheshire cat," said the Duchess. ''Thafls why." One of the most common sayings In this country is "Let the cat out of the bag." That originated in England - where - eotTntry people had a-trick of putting a cat in a bag and selling" it to young people who were foolish enough to "buy a pig In a poke." Of course If the buyer opened the bag he let the cat out and exposed 'the trick. The French have a saying which denotes sudden, change or trickery. It Is "tourner cate en peine." It means literally "turn a cat In pan." All of these facts go to show that in whatever sense the word cat Is used it tends to denote treachery or activity or evil of some character. And yet Supt. McMillan let a wild cat, and a Pennsylvania wild cat at that, escape him. THOUGHT SHE WAS NUMBER TWO. A Police Court Rom an c a in Which the , Wifs Took Back Her Husband and all Ended Happily. Non-support was the charge on which Detective Burkhardt arrested John Bond last night and hia bride of a few weeks waa the complainant. The case was heard before Judge King this afternoon and quite an Interesting condition of affairs waa revealed. The couple were married on June 5. The was Miss Mary Rowell and the e room gave his name as John R. Lvlne, Miss Howell -lived at ISfi Clinton street where she Uvea now: her husband worked ior ur. LOLireu on ii-agie street. The bride's age is 35 and the groom's 24, After they were married they went away on a wedding trip and returned only a few days ago, Mrs. La vine, as the bride, believed herself to have considerable property and there was not a thing in the way of the couple living quite hapully until a gossiping neignoor ioia mrs. ravine nai her husband had no right, to marry her as he already had a wife living. She was also told that Lavlne was not his right name. When Mrs. L&vino acoused him of hav ing a wife before he married her and of having another name Lavine denied the first charge and admitted the second. He said there were reasons why he had to be married under an assumed name. His real name is John Bond. This afternoon Mrs. Lavine or Mrs. Bond, as she properly is, asked the Judgd to auow ner to withdraw tne warrant. Hhe said she had her husband arrested because she wanled to find out whether he had another wife or not. 'I have money enough, judge," she said, "and I am willing to go with htm." "Are you willing .to support your wife?" asked the Judge of Lavine or Bond. . The prisoner replied that he was and the couple left the court room both apparently very happy.

DOING BETTER THERE NOW So Complaints Lately Doesn't Know Whether They Arc Paddling', However What the Prison Authorities Snv, special to the evf.nino kews. Albany, June 26. Gov. Morton has lila eye on the Elmlra Reformatory. Although much of the shocking story of the cruelty practiced at that Institution under the Ilrockway management was told while Mr. Morton was absent from this country, he has made himself .acquainted with the salient features of that remarkable Inquiry. The Brook-way contingent know this, 'and have consequently kept their Influential friends constantly at work ott-the Governor ever since. That he would certainly compel an Investigation of the Reformatory if occasion presented Is readily seen from his remarks to the NEWS correspondent today. The Governor's attention was called to the wide-spread story that one of the Reformatory inmates had recently been returned to his home in Brooklyn dead and that fatal Injuries had been discovered on his body by an undertaker. This matter appeared to have escaped the Governor in his reading of the dally papers, but he explained that he had been away and had not been able to look at the papers as carefully as usual. He, however, expressed a decided opinion that the Reformatory had prollted by the searching process of the recent Investigation. Speaking of It he said: "I have not had my attention called to any misconduct at Elmlra since I have been In office. I have not had a single complaint about that Institution from any source. My impression Is that the agitation of the matters brought out by the investigation through the newspapers has produced a decided and salutary change in the Reformatory. If there had been any further cause for complaint about the manner in which the institution is managed, or If the practice of paddling had been continued, I would certainly have heard of it. I think that the Reformatory is now being conducted as it should be." But while thus expressing himself and Intimating that he had sources of information as to the present status of Brockwaylsm, the Governor also admitted that he had no actual knowledge as to whether the brutalizing Influence of the "paddle" had been stricken from the Reformatory course. When asked point Wank if he knew whether or not "paddling" was yet a method of punish-, ment at Elmlra. he said he did not know." His exact words were: "You understand that I do not control the institution. That Is done by the board of managers. I have1 no Information as to whether that form of punishment is In vogue now or not." The mention of the managers led to the question as to whether the Govern,, or bad taken any action toward Ailing the last vacancy In that body that temporarily occupied by Mr. Rathbone. The Governor said he had not yet given the matter his attention and that he did not know Juet how soon he should take it up. "I am going awa on a short vacation," he said, "and I cannot say now whether I shall consider thl? matter when I return or not.!' In this connection he said "I have been frequently told by representative and Influential men that the Reformatory Is under good management now and that It ought not to be disturbed by further ohanges." From this passing remark it appeared, as has been before noted, that the Brockway contingent has beer. Industriously at work to ingratiate Itself with Gov. Morton from the very outset of his official career. Their plain object has been to prevent any change In the management that would interfere with the discredited Idas of "reform" that were brought with" such ghastly distinctness before the public during the investigation. That some at least of these ideas have been for the present modified would appear to be the case, unless the unfortunate Brooklyn boy already referred toshould turn out to have been murdered at the Reformatory, as was apparently the Idea of the undertaker as reported by the newspapers of that city. 11 Nothing was known at either the Executive chamber or the Prison Department about the Brooklyn case, beyond what had appeared In the papers. As a matter of fact the Prison Department distinctly disclaimed any Jurisdiction over the Reformatory Chief Clerk Baker, who was Industriously studying a list ofrthe newly appointed State Commission of Prisons; made- this assertion and there was nobody to deny him. The naming of this commission by the Governor under the new law has apparently-made the old - departments somewhat uncertain as to who should have authority to Investigate, should it appear that the death of the Brooklyn boy casta further suspicion on the Elmlra Reformatory. Many well Informed persons here think that Brockway and his associates have a wholesome fear of what might well happen with a board that they -could not influence and for this reason have been keeping aloof from their former "reform" practices. Certain It Is that the Prison Commission of eight which the Governor has Just named has ample power to consider the propriety of the Brockway methods. The law says: "'It shall be the duty of said commission to visit and Inspect all Institutions used for the detention of sane adults charged with or convicted of crime; to aid in securing the just, humane and economic administration of all said Institutions; to Investigate the management of all Institutions made subject to the visitation of said commission and the conduct and efficiency of the officers or persons charged with their management."

ST! Liu FIVE O'CLOCK. Peers: They Have Been Brought Here to Take the Plnces of the Strikers. ; L. P. BEYER & C0.'S AD. It Appeared In the "Toronto Mail" and Perhapa the Alien Contract Labor Law Has Beca Grossly Violated. The United States grand jary will shortly be called upon td consider what Inspector DeBarry considers the most flagrant violation" of the alien contract labor law ever brought to his attention. It Is the outcome of the plumbers' strike, and how far It has been carried on can be ascertained only by the statement of one of the striking' plumbers, who this afternoon stated that there were many Canadians working at the trade in the city and that there were more coming into the city every day. The labor organizations brought the matter to the attention of Mr. DeBarry and for the past week he has been working up clues, and the facts he related to a NEWS reporter this afternoon were sufficient toiwarrant the assertion that the United States laws have been grossly violated. The striking plumbers have all along feared the Importation of Canadians to fill their places, and their suspicions were substantiated when they read In the Toronto Mall last week the following ad.: ...' . f WANTED Plumbers. Inquire of L," P. Beyer & Co., 231 Pear street, Buffalo, N. Y. Mr. DeBarry'e attention was brought to the matter by one of the labor men and he Immediately started out to get evidence with which to bring the gulltyj parties to Justice. The striking plumbers wr anxious to assist and theyj worked quietly with the Inspector, Wltlil the result that they have secured suf flclent evidence t make arrests, which, will follow In the course of a few days, Mr. DeBarry has prepared affidavits which he will present at the hearing before the United States Commissioner. They are of the men who responded to the advertisements appearing In the Canadian papers and will be damaging evidence against the parties Interested; In the proceedings. Among those wha have responded to the advertisements thus far and haver secured employment here are Robert Summervllle. Robert Bell, and Johro Fowler. They all hail from Toronto-and responded to the communication Inserted by L. P. Beyer A Co., hi ther Toronto Mail. - . Their fare was paid to this city, and when they arrived here, according tr the statement of Mr. DeBarry, theyl wont immediately to 1U Pearl street There they entered into a contract with, the firm of L. P. Beyer & Co., whlchi stipulated that they should receive li per day for nine hoars' work and that they would be assured employment for three years, regardless of the outcome1 of the strike, and that if the Master Plumbers should eventually give In) they would be employed as heretofore and receive the same money and work the same hours as the organized men. The arrangements were satisfactory and the men were sent to different shops In the city. Robert Somervtlle, went to C. H. Werllng. 1S34 Broadway; Robert Bell to Henry Bradley, 22Bouck avenue, and John Fowler to Candee & Bmlth. 464 Elk street. The men. were assured In taking their positions with these respective firms that their contract would b carried out to the letter, and for three years they would be assured of work, . "It Is one of the most flagrant violations I have ever come across," said Inspector DeBarry this afternoon, "These people have openly violated the laws which ar so silmple that there can be no misinterpreting their meaning. The law says tn connection with th alien contract labor taw: "It shall be unlawful for any person, company, partnership or corporation, In any manner whatsoever, to prepay tha transportation, or in any way assist or encourage the importation or immigration of any alien or aliens, any for-i elgner or foreigners mto the United! States, Its Territories, or the District' of Columbia, under contract or agreement, parcel or special, express or Implied, made previous to the Importation or migration of such alien or aliens foreigner or foreigners, to performi labor or services of any kind tn the United Btates, Its Territories, or th District of Columbia. "Now, In this case there has not alone been a violation of the Allen Contract) Labor laws, but these parties have en-! tered Into a conspiracy and the penalty, in that case is very severe, for the lew' says: - . - "If two or mora persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States or to defraud the United States In any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such parties do any act to effect tlie object of the conspiracy, all the parties to such conspiracy shall be liable td a penalty of not1 more than $10,000 or to Imprisonment f or not more than two years, or to both fine and Imprisonment In the discretion of the court." The plumbers are greatly excited over the efforts of the Master Plumbers to fill the vacancies caused by the striking men and It is understood they will bold a meeting Immediately to take some actton In the matter. They have greatly assisted Mr. DeBarry in his efforts to get the facta in the present case, but will not let the matter rvHt with the present proof. The- affidavits and proof In the ce--a have been forwarded on tn Washington and Assistant United Btates Attorm-y William F. Mackay will take some immediate action in the matter. Mr. Frank L. Beyer this afternoon declared that L. P. Beyer &. Co. had not had a Canadian plumber In then-employ for several years and have none now. "We have not hired any Canadian plumbers," said Mr. Beyer.
