Philadelphia, June 10.—The Republican
convention city o£ 1900 has everything In
readiness, praticaily, for the quadrennial
gathering of the Republicans of the Unit
ed Stales, ten days in advance of the date
fixed for the opening session.
The city is beginning to dress up to re
ceive its guests. The magnificent conven
tion hail on the west bank of the Schuyl
kill river is complete in every detail. De
sirable hotel accommodations for the
next two weeks will be extremely hard to
find, as all the larger hostelries and the
exclusive apartment' houses have been
booked to their capacity. Quite a num
ber of state delegations have rented
houses entirely for all of next week.
The storm center of the convention be
tween the sessions will be the Hotel Wal
ton at Broad and Locust streets, where
the National Committee will have Us
headquarters. The meetings of the Na
tional Committee will begin next Wednes
The Walton also will be the stamping
grounds of the Maine, Connecticut, New
Tork. Ohio. Michigan, Wisconsin and Mis
souri state delegations.
The vice presidential booms of the sons
of these.states will also find lodßmeni at
the Walton. National Chairman Hanna
and Secretary Dick will occupy suites of
rooms at the Bellevue, a block from the
Walton, along with Senator Lodge of
Massachusetts, and other leading Repub
At the Lafayette Hotel will be quartered
the delegations from Alaska. Indiana,
Idaho, Minnesota, New Jersey. Rhode
Island. South Dakota and Virginia, while
the Continental Hotel will house the Ala
bama, Florida. Illinois. lowa. Kentucky,
Kansas, Maryland. North Dakota. Texas
and Wyoming contingents. The Stenton
will care for the Colorado, Delaware,
Massachusetts and New Mexico delega
tions. West Virginia and Nebraska have
engaged rooms at the Stratford, and Ten
nessee, California and Louisiana will hold
forth at the Bingham House. Other
state delegations will be quartered al
various smaller hotels and boarding
The A'onvention Hall.
The convention hall is located in West
Philadelphia, close to the University of
Pennsylvania's group of buildings, and is
•ne and one-half rgiles from the National
Committee headquarters and the hotel dis
trict. Transportation to and from the hall
is ample, the facilities in this respect hav
ing been thoroughly tested time and time
again last fall during the National TCx
port Exposition, on which grounds the
great hall is located and to whom it be
The auditorium has been pronounced by
Republican national leaders and the news
paper correspondents who have attended
many national conventions to be the most
magnificent in appearance and the most
complete in every detail of any structure
built in this country for a similar purpose.
The seating capacity of the place is close
to 16,000. The main floor is provided with
thirty-four entrances. The press stand for
500 working newspaper men is directly in
front of the stage, and is four feet above
the main floor. In front of the press stand
is the space for the delegates, which is
actually in the center of the hall.
On all four sides of the hall running from
the main floor well tip to the rcof are
banked row tiler row of seats. There is
only one gallery, which runs the entire
width of the hall at the rear. The ban i
will be located in the center of the gal
Back of the stage and away from the
noise of the crowd are located numerous
committee rooms. The telegraphic tacil -
ties ate ample.
There are nearly 200 wires running into
the hall. The exterior view of the hall is
beautiful. For months the city's forest-r
and landscape gardeners have been at
work beautifying the grounds surround
ing the hall. The main entrance to the
building stands back COO feet from the
gate of the fence which surrounds the
ground. The approach to the hall, known
locally as the Esplanade, is well cov. r and
with fine shrubbery and young trees.
The building will be turned over to >he
National Committee this week.
I'll 11 mle I pilin'* Hard Task.
The committee of citizens having charge
of the arrangements has raised nearly $1,10.-
nm for the convention. One hundred
thousand of this amount was for the Na
tional Committee and the remaining $30,-
000 is for the expenses of altering the hall.
Out of the 16,000 seats in the hall Phila
delphia will get 4.000.
The Mayor will turn the tickets over to
a secret committee of five persons to be
divided pro rata among the subscribers
of the $130,000 fund. Absolutely not one
ticket will be given by this commiitee to
a Philadelphian who did not subscribe.
No eommltttee has had a harder task
than that assigned to the Press Commit
tee, which practically finished its labors
the past week. It had seats in the
press section at its disposal, which, under
the agreement wdth the National Com
mittee, were to be awarded "to newspa
per men actually doing work for the daily
papers and using the wires.”' More than
2.000 applicbiions were received, and the
work of cutting this number to 500 with
ihe least possible friction was difficult.
The N'allonal Committee will hold iis
first session In this city on Wednesday,
when every member is expected to be
present, with toe exception of G n. James
H. Wilson of Delaware, who is in Cuba.
The organization of the convent) n in 1 nil
likelihood will be taken up and final y
passed upon. The greatest task as-igneJ
to the National Committee will be the
matter of contests. The committee is ix
peeted to take such action as will make

PEARY'S STEAMER KEADV.
Soon lo Start on Her Trip Totvnrii

St. Johns. X. F., June 10 —The Pea y
Arctic steamer "Windward - ' is ready to
come out of dry dock, having fully com
pleted the extensive repairs which have
been in progress tor several months, . nd
will shortly leave for Sydney, C. H.. in
command of Capt. Samuel VV. P,arcleit,
to take on coal and supplies .or her voy
age to the North.
W hile the new engines desited have not
been obtained, in consequence of the ut
ler inability of manufacturers both in
Great Britain and in America to take up
the contract, anew shaft and propeller
have been supplied, the old engints tlior-
I oughly overhauled and put in the h.st
possible order, so that al least a knot til
one-half an hour in speed ha< been gain
ed, bringing the “Windward” up to the
■'Kile" of tlie 1891-1892 and 1895 expedition :.
In addition, the hull has been thoroughly
rebuilt, strengthened both within and
without, and the Windward, as a whole,
is in far better condition than she has
been for years, new boilers having been
installed by Mr. Hurmsworlh shortly be
fore he turned her over to Mr. Peary in
The Windward" will this year sail as an
American ship, so far as her nation ! i y
is concerned. The necessary legislat on
by Congress having been approved by
President McKinley, though not hav ns
entered an American port, the formal
register has not yet been issued. Capt.
Bartlett has, however a copy of the
act, certified by the Secretary of ih?
Treasury, upon which the United States
consul and foreign authorities of any por:
will permit the Windward to fly the S.br
and Stripes. The rebuilt Windwaid w 11
be, therefore, the first Artie expedition
steamer to carry (he Stars nnd Stripes at
the peak since the ill-fated Polaris left
the Brooklyn navy yard in July, 1871, un
der command of Capt. Charles F. Halt,
and who died on board a few months
The expedition will sail from Sydney
about July 1, and proceed dlrelHy. with a
call at Disco, to Etah, North Greenland.
Mr. Peary's winter quarters, where in
structions from him will doubtless be
found, or If not. will be awaited. The
Windward will take with her the maxi
mum quantity of coal which she can carry;
additional lumber, oil, sugar, arms, am
munitions, provisions, scientific instru
ments and everything which is necessary
for Mr. Peary’s work. The Windward
also lakes two new whaleboats, buib at
New Bedford, for the Peary service, thor
oughly equipped in every eletail.
It is, however, quite possible (hat Mr.
Peary may have attained the Pole ibis
spring, in which case he will, of course,
return with the ship; if not. the additional
equipment, with what remains of the forty
tons of supplies left at Etah by the Diana
last year, will be ample for the remainder
of tlie time which he will devote to his
work. Upon the arrival of the Windward
at Etaii. Mr. Peary will assume command,
and her further movements will be sub
ject to the Conditions of his work and
to his Instructions. No passengers will
be taken on the Windward, the Danish
government having qualified their permis
sion to land at the Greenland ports, with
the conditions that tourists should not be
carried. Mrs. Peary and Miss Peary, how
ever, will go North on ihe steamer as far
as Etah, a'd it Is probable that the Wind
ward, if she returns, will bring home the
Robert Stein party, landed near Cape Sa
bine by the Diana in August last.

A noise-proof house has been provided

The doctor has thrown his house open
for inspection, suggesting that many peo
ple, contemplating moving on account of
intolerable noises might remain where
they are by emulating his plan.
The apparatus whi h admits air into
the doctor's house, but which, he gays,
excludes noises, is an invention of his
own, resulting from months of effort to
iind means to procure quiet in his home.
The plan, as described by Dr. Jones, is
merely the stuffing up of all cracks and
apertures in the house which might admit
sound, with a material so constructed as
io afford access of air while shutting out
noise. The material w hich Dr. Jones says
discriminates between noi-e and air is in
the form of stripe of rubber perforated
with zig-zag holes. Through this the air
is admitted, while the noise, It is said, is
softened or compleiely deadened, the
sound waves dying ou in repeated reflec
tions in the crooked passages. These
strips of rubber Dr. Jones has placed
ov**r all cracks around the doors and win
dows of his house, and two months' ex
perience with the plan has convinced him,
lie says, of Its practicability.
Dr. Jones explain'd that In his efforts
to procure n residence impervious t<>
street noises he had moved so frequently,
wkhout success, that he finally decided to
construct a noise-proof house.
"Now, after my family has gone to
bed you couldn’t heart a steam whistle
blowing in front of my house," said Pr.
Jones. "The house Is as quiet as a grave
yard. 1 experienced some difficulties at

From the New York Herald.
The old-fashioned language of flowers
has acquired anew significance. The
time has come when it is necessary to
make a study of the etiquette of flower
giving. Not on y do the flowers convey
i message to the recipient, bu* the man
ner in which they are sent—in boxes, bas
kets or bouquet*—ha** a deep meaning. The
woman who is favored with many flora!
gifts lias learned to read, as from a let
ter, the sentiments which prompted the
generosity of the donoi.
All the fashionable florists are conver
sant with this language, ami know what
is the correct thing io he presented under
.my and all conditions. These florists are,
perhaps, the only members of the sterner
sex who arc entirety familiar with the nu
merous slgnifionnci s which the’.r stock of
flowers, baskets, vases, boxes, ribbons,
cords and tassels, crepe papers and gauze $
are capable of suggesting. Every day or.
tiers are received. comprehended nnd cor
rectly fulfilled at the leading floral em
poriums of this city which would draw the
verdict "that customer is crazy" from the
uniiinted, unlearned florist.
There seems to be tacit understanding
between florists and their male customers
for the latter do not go into detail and
say, "1 want to compliment n lady I have*
recently met, the hostess of last night's
dimer. What shall I send her?" or "I
was bored nt dinner last night, and want
to pay my dinner debts in flowers." The
actual and entire meaning of "an order"
is never discussed, in the generality of
cases n florist knows considerably more
of the affairs of his patron than does the
doctor or minister. In a litt’.e time he
knows the names and addresses of the
friends of n customer, and also in what
esteem they are he’d. The history of
many love affairs is written out in the
ordet hooks of florists. So. though all
flowers are charming and acceptable, em
barrassment and misunderstanding may
result from a thought!' ss. though geneio s
The meaning of flowers varies according
to the circumstances under which they are
presented. A red rose can mean nothing
or signify. "I love you," or it can plead.
"Please give me your love." But every
rule is subject to one condition. That
flower which is generally known o be a
person’s favorite, even though it be "a
red, red rose," is a’low.ible under any cir
cumstances w’here a gift is .t all accept
Occasionally a flowering plant in a (pret
ty jardinb re may he sent to the married
woman whose hospitalities have been fre
quent and informal. In such a gift may he
read 'astlng appreciation of her kindliness
On the occasion of this old friend's giv
ing a formal reception or dinner, a hand
some basket of flowers or group of or
chid- sent before the affair conveys the
donor's compliments and sincere wishes
for the success of the entertainment. If
sent aftei ward it means. "Your affair
was the success of the season.” A young
man should be careful nowadays in select
ing flowers for a young married woman.
Flowers should never he spnt to her on
regular days or without a card. He should
avoid red roses, except American beau
ties. The combination pink -40*es and or
chids is tabooed. An ordinary florist's
box of mixed roses Is allowable, as Is any
growing plant. In springtime gieat mass* a
of early bl'ossoms are deemed the prettiest
possible compliment to any one. Huge
high baskets, fitted with tin. nnd high,
slender jardinieres are provided for the
long, scraggy branches of dogwood, cher
ry. apple, p°ach, japonic and locust blos
When a young man falls in love with a
girl at fiist sight" and sends her a costly
basket of orchids semi-weekly, she expects
to be called upon to answer an important
question In the immediate future. And if
the girl wears a few of the orchids it im
plies. "I am happy." The flowers place.)
in th* 1 drawing room mean, "1 ipfuse to
see any significance in your gift." If the
orchids are not in sight when the donor
nils it Is to be presumed they are In the
girl’s own room, and that signifies. "I
shell keep you guessing awhile."
The girl who receives a weekly box of del
icate pink roses, realizes tT).t she is much
admired by the sender. The admiration
increases in proportion as the color of the
roses deepens. When ihe deep, drooping
Jacqueminot arrives it means. "I love
you." But not until a few delicate or
• hids nestle amid file swept rod roses Is
the man ready to speak of what is in his
heart—love and marriage. If the semi
weekly box arrives and contains earn i-
Hons. daffodils and narcissuses instead
of pink roses, then the fair one realizes
that her friend admires but eherlshe* h*r
wi ll a purely platonic affection.
Lilies of the vaMey, rosebuds, narcissus,
jasmine mignonette, any delicate, costly
flowers are sent to debutantes as tokens of
admiration and t.s plead the raufe of
Amiclta. The florist usually knows when
tlie young man has arrived at a satisfac
tory understanding, because he leaves n
standing order for violets. The purple
flowers continue lo shower upon the happy
girl until lilies of the valley, orchids and
Ini ltd roses terminate the floral wooing.
If a man receives a bunch of margue
rites with no card, it means that some girl
suggests that h< ask himself a few ques
tions: "One I love, two I love, three f
love; I say. four T love with all my heart.”
etc. If the bachelor unexpectedly receives
several boxes of flowers at cn e. it signi
fies that several ladies of his acquaintance
do* m it high time he gave one of those
delightful afternoon affairs in hi* bachelor
apartments, and the married lady (usually
and old friend pressed Into service by ihe
girls) who sends a box of tea ro es offers
to act as hostess.
It is remarkable how many flowers are
being presented to men. They even send
them to each other. But the bachelor
apariments of almost any favored "lady's
man" frequently have the appearance of
a bower. Of late flowers ore to be found
even In business offices. And h I- rigid
