BOYS IN BLUE AT BOSTON Still Pouring Into the Gay and restive City in Great Crowds. PRESIDENT HARRISON'S  WELCOME Williasi K. Vanderbilt on Thursday handed his check for five thousand dollars to Charles Myers, a young man who while � in Mr. Vanderbilt's employ was terribly bitten by his employer's favorite mastiff. In addition Mr. Vanderbilt paid the expenses of the young man's illness, aggregating over four thousand dollars. Tbo vast numbor of applications for pensions under the new act is chiefly the result of the zeal of pension attorneys, who bavo been stimulated to extraordinary ardor by the certainty of obtaining a fee of ten dollars for each case from the Federal, Treasury.  There are now not less than ^�haD5!�f flIimate BD.d .wator' 300,000 of these cases, with a probability that thorn will be 200,000 more. One of the costliest investments connected with coal mining is tho coal breaker. Where the mine is a large one a large breaker is needed, coating anywhere from 550,000 to $150,000. These expensive structures, built of woud mainly, are, as a matter of course, liable to be burned down at any time, entailing heavy loBsea upon the mine owners. The wonder is that large mine operators did not long ago construct these breikora of iron, thus rendering them comparatively fire proof. It ia announced that the large mining firm of Coxe Brothers & Co., are building the largest breaker in the anthiaoite coal region and entirely of iron, rendering it virtually indestructible by fire.

The Distinguished Party on Board the Flagship BaltimoTtt Taken In Charge by the Bay State Governor and Enthnsl astically Greeted by the Mnltltndes-Other Late News. Boston, Aug. 11.-The flagship Balti more of the Atlantic eq uadron, with President Harrison on board, arrived this afternoon, the other vessels of the squad ron firing a salute. President Harrison landed about 5:40 p. m., amid the thunder of oaunons, at ROwe's wharf, and was es oorted to the Hotel Vendome by tho First Battalion of Cavalry. The sidewalks and windows along the lino of march, which was nearly two miles in extent, wore packed with an enthusiastic multitude who greeted the President with hand clap ping and oheers. The President rode with Governor Brsckett in a oarriage drawn by four dark bays. He carried his hat in hia band and bowed right and left at the greetings of the throng. Behind him rode Secretariea Husk and Noble, and in a third oarriage were Private Seoretary Halford and members of the Governor's staff. President Harrison occupied the state suite of rooms at the Vendome. opening op the camps . At 10 a, m. to-day the meeting of the National Counoil of Administration was held at the Vendome. Tho proceedings of the Counoil aro secret. At this morning's Besaion General Alger presided. Camp Philip B. Sheridan In Mechanic's Fair Buildings, was formally opened this morning. Six comrades hare been sent to the city hospitil suffering slightly from From 1,200 to 1,500 veterans will bo eired for in this oamp alone. Religious services have been arranged for. The arrivals of veterans are inoreasing every hour. Camp Murdoak, with accommodations for 350 men, and the camps at tho new armory with accommodations for 1,200 men, were also officially opened this morning. THE BIG PATtADE TO-DAY. The great day, that of the parade, is twenty-fours off, and thanks to the rail* road strikers, scarcely half of the visiting postB have arrived yet; but notwithstanding this, the oity is filling up with via'tors who are pouring in from all parts of New England. Ono family, a husband, wife and three ohildreh, with a trunk in a hand oart, arrived yesterday from the wilds of Maine, after a week's tramp. Tbe hotels are full and many business houses have decided to close up all business for a week, letting out their entire establishments at fabulou9 prices for lodging and eating purposes. All tbe big publio buildings have been transformed into immense barracks, especially the big Mechanios Fair building on Huntingdon avenue, where, spread on the floor and galleries, are cots for five thousand. The announcement of the trouble on the Vanderbilt lines oreated something akin to ooneternation, but to-day trains have been coming through all right. All day long the streets have been blooked with people, and carriages went up to the exorbitant prioe of 10 for a few hours. It is expected that fully 35,000 members of the Grand Army will be in the parade to-morrow. THE OFFICIAL PROGRAM. The official program for the week's doings is as follows: Tuesday morning- The fJKnd parade, in which 35,000 members of the Grand Army and large delegations of military, naval and Sons of Veterans organizations will participate. It will be reviewed by the President, Governor, Mayor and General Alger. Tuesday evening-Grand jolly reoeption of the G. A. R. and Women's Relief Corps in Exhibition Hall.

Friday-Excursion of all hands to Plymouth, with clambake accessories. Saturday-More receptions, excursions, clam bakes, etc., by Stite and city governments. ^ The weather outlook ia favorable. Thin afternoon two heavy thunder storms, rolled up iu the northwest and southwest horizonB, but over tho city they separated, and, while tho suburbs were deluged with rain, tho skies oloured off bright, with Boston's decoratioufi only s'.ightly dampened. LIVING BY THEIR WITS. Schemers of all Kinds Flock to Washington -Ways of the Lobbyists. Tbero are porhaps in the oity of Wash iugton moro schemes and devices for making money in a way that barely comes within tho bonnds of legality than in any other on the continent. One soheme which has been successfully worked for yoars is tbe office brokerage, and the numbor of people pursuing that catling, is a great deal larger than is ordinarily bus peoted. Only those who have it in their power to give positions or those who have influcnoe with such people can tell of the work done by these office brokers. One Arm employs several women, who are considered the most effective agents in that sort of work. Suppose a mania in searoh of a Government position. If the placo he Is after comes under the olvil service restriotiona ho prepares for and passes tho exmaination, but knows very well that hia chance of obtaining a position then is very little better than it was before. If be is posted on the system of aeonring a place he at once visits one of these "brokerage" shops. There he learns that by the payment of a bonus, whioh may be a good round cash advancement or an agreement t�. pay so much from his monthly salary in oaae he secures a position, that the influenoe and praoticed assistance of tbe brokers will be given him. The man la anxious to get on TJnole Sam's piy rolls, and usually accepts the terms offered. Then begins the work of the broker. A nice pathetic story is usually evolved from the man's history, no matter how common-place his life may have been. The oase, nine times out of ten, la placed in the hands of a woman, who oan accommodate beraelf to oiroumatancea and appear as tbo man's wife or sistor, as the details of the cooked-np story would suggest. Putting on a dress that will accord ith tbo condition of life she assumes sho sallies forth on her business. The Capitol, of course, ia the first place she visits. If tbe man is a citizen of the District ebo selecta some member of the District of Columbia Committee whom sho thinks would be most easily persuaded to espouse hia cause. She sends her card to the member, who, seeing a lady's name, gallantly responds. He la drawn ioto tbe recess of a convenienlent window, and thus subjected to all the disoreet blandishments these slick lobbyists have learned, tf the woman assumes the role of the applicant's wifo, she is usually dressed in mourning, every article of dreas being neat and in good taste. She tells the atory of her husband's miBfortunea and tho aervice ho haB done his country, expatiates upon his wonderful abilities, and hen winds up with a sad picture of their present condition-how the wolf of poverty is hanging about the door and the only possible hope of relief seems to lie at the hands of tbe Government. Generally the woman is successful and secures the indorsement of the Congressman, armed with whioh sho invades the other end of the Capitol. These agentB are "persistent," and when they swoop down into a Senator's committee room, there they stay until they have an interview with the Senator himself.! They do not place any confidence in the statements of the private secretary that the Senator is busy, and that he (the private seorettry) oan attend to the business imself. No, they want assurance from first sources, and the much-annoyed Senator has to listen to the pretty tale of woe and, often, to get. rid of tbe unfortunate, 1 ndorsos the application and sends his clerk with the woman to the Chief of Department under whom the position ia sought. The brokor has done his or hor work: tho applicant has been provided for and willingly pays over the cash agreed upon. The income of some of theae flrjns is said to be something handaome each month, and thousands of olerks in subordinate positions are working under this somi.legal blackmail.

Another Veteran Mole. Dauphin county now comes to the front with a veteran mule that is a mate for the one owned by Mr. Shaffer of this oity, and of whioh mention was reoently made in the Express. Tbe West Chester Sews says the Dauphin county mule is 47 years old, but notwithstanding his age, showsa groat deal of enduranoe whon driven by his owner, B. F. Balsbaoh. This ancient mule was in the servioe of the United States daring the Mexioan war. When the rebellion broke out be again entered the service of Uncle Sam, but before the war was over he was captured by the rebels and made to do duty for them. This i� why the letters "C. S. A.," as well as 'U. S," are yet plainly viaiblo whorothoy were branded on him more than a quarter of aoenlury ago. Tho Rlnohart filfeters. Manager Farnaworth Bays ho has aeourod one night from the management of "Tho Kinohart Siatcrs." The date will bo announced later on. It will be a month or so at least. A little enorgy of this kind, 'if pursued, will bring to our town a hlghor standard of companies. Weighing the Stone-P. o. 8. of A. l'lenio-A Place (or the Coaehes-Will Dance at Mippeno-Low Water-Br. Kean's Office No Longer an Experiment-Another Veteran Hole. A special meeting of City Counoil was held last night at whleh all the members wero present. President Smith stated the meeting was called to hear the report of the Finance Committee and the Water Committee in reference to laying iron water pipe on Peaeb, Jones, and Fourth streets, and also for the tranBaotion of general business. The report of the committees was read, reoommending that the iron pipe be laid and that water certificates be issued to raise funds to meet the expense. The report was adopted as read. The petition of oitisens of the Third ward asking that the orossing at Church and Fourth street! be repaired was referred to the Committee on Streets and Bridges with power to act. Mr. Kistler offered a resolution which was adopted authorizing tho Water Commissioners to purchase Iron water pipe for extending tbe water system on Peach, Jones and Fourth streets. On motion of Mr. Seld the Fintnoe Committee was authorized to advertise for bids for water certificates in sums of (500 each to the amount of $5000, the money so realized to be used in extending the iron pipes of the water system. A communication from citizens of the First ward asking that a nuisance In the shape of a mud hole on East Bald Eagle street be abated, was referred to the Committee on Streets and Bridges. The petition of citizens of the First ward for a lamp on the north side of Bald Eagle street at Jail alley was referred to tho Police Committee with poworto ao*-� Mr. Haberstrob called tha attention of Counoil to the bad condition of East Park atreet and urged that it receive immediate attention. Tbe matter was referred to the Committee on Streets and Bridges. Mr. Scheid stated that a crossing on Henderson street waa in bad condition and the matter was referred to to tbe samo committee. Mr. Eistler called attention to the fact that when Counoil passed the ordinance relating to dogs at the last meeting a similar ordinance was already In existence, and on his motion Counoil voted to reconsider the vote on the ordinance. On motion of Mr. Beid the ordinanee adopted at the last meeting was repealed. Mr. Kistler then exhibited to Counoil a blank bond for the sum of one hundred dollars whioh tbe Treasurer had found in tbe vault or safe in the Counoil room. Several coupons had been clipped from the bond, tho matter was referred to tbe Finance Committee and City Solicitor. Mr. John Hoonan was present and permitted to make a statement in regard to a certain street back of tbe basin whioh he Claimed waa impassable for (earns. The Streeta and Bridges Committee was requested to look after the matter complained of. Mr. Herr, tho contractor .'who furnishes the crushed stone, made a statement to Council in regard to tbe weight of the stone as deoided upon by tbe special committee, and offered to compromise. The whole matter was then referred back to tho Special Committee. On motion Counoil adjourned. Deaths. James Fulton died Tuesday, AuguBt 5th, at his residenoe near Hubleroburg, Centre oounty, aged 73 years, 5 months and 7 days. The deceased was a brother of Councilman Samuel Falton, of this oity.

Superintendent ltrnngard Says There lias Been a Growth In Kdimitlooal Matters. Since my last annual report there baa boon a steady growth in educational matters throughout the county. I find muoh to commend and notalittlo to censure. If there is one thing more than another that merits tbe care and attention of tho American oitizen, it is our systom of public schools. They are the underlying atruoture of our government. By properlv eduouting the coming citizen we. strengthen and perpetuate the boon of free government as handed down to us by our patriot fathers. Tbree new school houses were built during the year, one in Allison, one in Colebrook and one in East Keating. They were all furnished with patent seat! and desks. There are still twenty-seven rooms with out suitable furniture. We trust these may soon be supplied. Modern improve menta are just as necessary in tho school room as anywhere else. Slate surface, in a number of instances, were made to take tho place of the old blackboard, which was oftentimes unfit for use and a souroe of discouragement to teacher and pupil. Maps, charts, and dictionaries were purchased in a number of districts. A piano was purchased for the Renovo High Sohool and an organ for the Loganton schools. The necessary apparatus should be placed into every sohool room and tho teacher required to nse it. Our school yards should all be surrounded with neat and durable fences. The school grounds should be planted with trees. These things would add ma. terially to the welfare of every community, The teaobing foroe iuoluded thirty-four Normal graduates besides fifty-four who havo had more or less training at our State Normal sohools. This we consider praiseworthy as well as noteworthy. The State incurs great expense in maintaining these schools and our young people, especially thoae who expect to teach, should avail themselves of the advantages whioh they offer. A more direct benefit results from the work of the trained than tho untrained teacher. It is true, many are failures with all suoh advantages, but it is equally true that without the trainingthey would be still greater failures. A few of our teaohers are fairly well paid. The mass ol them are not Twenty or twenty-five dollars doet not, mil not, and can not secure efficient teaching aervice anywhere. With the assistance the State gives, teachers' salaries should be increased and more' apparatus provided for our schoo.'s. Any other disposition of this fund is virtually in violation of the spirit sf the law. There should also be somo discrimination in fixing tbe salaries of teachers. It is not good economy, and is practical no where else, except in fixing teachers' salaries, to pay the novioe as much as the tried, faithful teaoher, with an experience of from five to twenty years. In almost everything else skilled labor roceivee due consideration and recognition. Neither should the numerical size of tbo sohool have anything to do with the grading of salaries. It requires as muoh time, and teaching ability to teaoh ten pupils as forty pupils. Oce district had the two-term system thus virtually not according to all of school age tho benefit of the minimum form. In rural districts many ot the larger pupils are necessitated to labor on the farm, and schools should be kept open that they too, may have the advantage of as muoh of the wbolo term as possible. The greatest good to tbe greatest number should be made tbe rule invariably. A number of local institutes were held, and with one exception, well attended. Bad roads and inolement weather hindered a few from being in attendance. The County Teachers' Institute was held at Look Haven, Dec. 17-21. Nearly all the teachers were enrolled. The instructors wore Dr. Edward Brooks, Profs. F. V. Irish, D.,B. Simpson and D. C. Murphy. Evening lectures and entertainments wore given by Dr. Edward Brooks, Trot. S. T. Ford, and John R. Clarke. Tho teaohers' reunion was held on Monday evening. The music was directed by Prof. E. E. Adama. One of the pleasant features of tho institute-day and evening- was the very exoellent singing of Miss Jean Glenn. Thus has ouded a year of hard and incessant toil-a striving to lift sohool and sohool work to a higher plane. While our aucooss in some departments of the work did not measure up to expectations we believe that even failure after long striving is grander than succeas without striving. Much has been done iu the past but wo bolievo that even more has been left undone. May God aid us all-directors, teachers, and patrons to livo and labor in tbo development of tho coming niau and woman. May tho [standard of exoellonce in all that ia good, and useful, and beauti:ul fully muuBUre up to the intelligence wc claim. Iu conclusion, I wish to thank tho Department for counsel received: tho local press lor publiahipg educational matter; the direotora aud teachers for their co operation; and to patrous and pupils for many kindnesses bestowed.
