Carnia and Port Huron Celebrating the Event. The Great Tunnel Opened. Tort Huron, Mich., Sept 19. The greatest sub-marine tunnel on the North American continent was formally opened to traffic this afternoon with simple but impressive ceremonies. According to the original program k had been intended to make the event a brilliant one by the presence of President Harrison, the governor-general of Canada, and the governors of many of the American states. Owing to the fact that nearly every one of these distinguished people had previous engagements for to-day, however, a change in the program became necessary. The day was observed as a general holiday, both in this city and at Sarnia, on the Canadian side. Each city .was gaily decorated, and thousands of , strangers added themselves to the regular population to take part in the festivities. Shortly after noon, Sir Henry Tyler, president of the Grand Trunk railway, accompanied by the board of directors and a large number of invited guests, left Sarnia and passed through the tunnel on special trains. Upon their arrival in Port Huron, an adares3 of welcome was delivered by Hon. William Mclllwain, mayor of the city, to which responses were made by Sir Henry Tyler and others. Shortly after 2 o'clock the party, reinforced by the American guests, returned to Sarnia where a luncheon was served. The tables were laid across the boundary line. There were six toasts having special reference to the tunnel and the international interests it represents. During the banquet the Thirteenth Battalion band of Hamilton rendered "God Save the Queen" on the Canadian side, while the band on the American side filled the air with the strains of the "Star-Spangled Banner." After the banquet the tunnel was thrown open to the public. The tunnel, which was formally opened to-day, passes under the St. Claire river at the toot of Lake Huron, and is intended for the purpose of superceding the ferry-boats, which have heretofore conveyed the trains of jthe Grand Trunk route across that. river. It will afford im-jnense advantages to passengers and for freight traffic in avoiding the inconveniences of a ferry; it saves two hours of time and shortens the distance over six miles. It extends from Port Huron in the state of Michigan to Sarnia, in the i anadian province of Ontario, and the :ompaay by which it has been constructed was organized under special act oi the Canadian parliament. The lenrth of the tunnel from portal to portal is 6,025 feet and the length under the river bed 2,290 feet. It is lined throughout with solid cast-iron plates bolted together in segments, the whole line weighing 28,000 tons. The bolts and nuts for connecting the segments together weigh 2,000,000 pounds. The permanent way through the tunnel is laid with steel rails weighing one hundred pounds to the lineal yard. The interior diameter of the tunnel is twenty feet, and ample means have been provided for thorough ventilation and for lighting it throughout with electricity.' The total cost of the tunnel has been $2,700,000. Toward which the Dominion government granted a subsidy of $375,-U00. The work on the preliminary drift was commenced in October, 1886. The tunnel owes its existence to the enterprise of Sir Henry Tyler, who conceived the idea, projected the work, and was instrumental in securing the money for its construction. The whole responsibility for carrying out the work from its inception to completion has resided with Mr. Joseph Hobson, chief engineer; while Sir Henry Tyler has been ably assisted and seconded by Sir Joseph Hickson, formerly general manager ot the road, and Mr. fcsargent, present general manager. Besides possessing the interesting honor of being the first international tunnel between the United States and Canada, it is a noted engineering triumph and the rapidity oi its construction and its successful completion will prove a powerful factor in the controversy which every now and then agitates the marine and railroad shipping: interests on the subject of throwing bridges over the Detroit river for railroad use.

He Seems to Thoroughly Understand Nature's Secrets, Without Exploding Dynamite or . Back-a-Kock. He Brings On Three Gentle Bains at Cheyenne, Wyo. Cheyenne's Three Rains. Chicago, Sept 19. Lester Kabris, a wealthy cattleman of Cheyenne, Wyo., now in this city, talked to a reporter of the recent rain-making experiments of Frank Melbourne at that place. 'I was present during Melbourne's experiments recently at Cheyenne," said he, "and the results were certainly startling. "Ex-Governor Baxter, of Wyoming, a large ranch owner and President Man-chrey, of Melrose bank, were present during the performance of Melbourne. They were skeptical when they came on the ground in the Cheyenne suburbs, from where the rain producer was to carry on his communication with the clouds. There was a hearty laugh from the people when Melbourne came out of his barn attired in nothing but a pair of trousers and flannel shirt, and said: "Ladies and gentlemen we will have a shower at 12 o'clock.' This was at nine o'clock and he added: 'You will not laugh so hard at noon. You will be wishing for umbrellas about that time.' Young Melbourne then disappeared inside the barn. We took a look at the clear sky and pronounced Melbourne a fraud. "At 10:43 there was not a cloud visible and indications for rain were as far off as ever. The weather bureau for that district had predicted continued fair weather. "Slowly about 11 o'clock clouds began to creep up over the horizon. They came from both east and west and met directly above us. At 12:05 it began to drizzle and at 12:30 ram was coming down steadily. At two o'clock or two minutes before that hour the rain had ceased the clouds had disappeared and the sun was shining as brightly as it was at 9 o'clock. Melbourne came out, his face was flushed and the clothing on him was wringing wet with perspiration. He said to Ex-Governor Baxter, 'Governor, I will give you another shower at 3 o'clock.' Melbourne disappeared and soon after 3 o'clock the clouds put in an appearance the same as before and rain began to fall. It came down quite hard and at 4 o'clock when it ceased there was mud and little pools of water in every direction. - -"At 4:30 the sky was as clear as eve r, and for a second lime Melbourne put in an appearance, and said: 'The next shower will be at 6 o'clock' 'For heaven's sake call him off or he will drown us out,' said a man who had witnessed the remarkable performance of the Ohio man. Gov. Baxter did call him off. He informed Mr. Melbourne that he and his associates were thoroughly satisfied with the experiments."

The peo ple's party rallies are having a very poor attendance, and the managers ot the cam paign are feeling decidedly downcast At the rally here last night, quite a good- sized crowd listened to Mrs. Anna Diggs, of Kansas, speak, but after Seitz had been speaking two-thirds of the audience got up and left, leaving only about sixty-five to hear the balance of the speech. As Springfield is supposed to be the head quarters for the People's party, and the hall where bertz spoke was the hall where ne was nommaxea, tne Deggany attend ance is a significant sign of the small interest taken in the People's party here. The interest is growing leS3 as the cam paign progresses. A meetmjr was held at South Charles ton yesterday, wrhich was likewise a grand fizzle. John Seitz, candidate for governor, in company with Mrs. Anna L. Digga, the lady orator, wasthere,and Seitz spoke for about two hours to a "crowd" of twenty-seven persons. Owing to the small number, the lady orator did not speak, and all are feeling blue over the outlook. SANTA FE ACCIDENTS The List of Casualties During the Week at the fcanta Fe Shopi.
