People watched with much inter
est the stringing of the big cables of
the Independent telephone company
Monday and yesterday. The cable
line is on Jeffeis'on street, where the
big poles were put in position. Dur
ing the process of stringing it, line
men were at the top of every Alternate
pole for moie than half the length ot
the street. Tbe cable was unwound
from i eel, whence It passed over tbe
top ot the pole, and then ran through
pulley devices near the top of each
pole. At the far end, a horse was
bitched, supplying the necessary pow
er to move the long and heavy cable.
The latter contains over 100 insulated
wires, all encased in an outer coating
of lead. The cable is one of the large
items of expense in the construction
of a telephone system, tbe one now

Chicago, July 29. Declaring the
Lord had commanded him to end
the packing house strike by killing
all the strikers, John A. Leed, a
negroj caused much excitement at
the stockyards today. He was ar
rested alter a struggle and fouud to
be carrying a loaded revolver. The
police are in doubt whether he is in
sane or only shamming.
Eighty negroes beii g transport
ed from the stockyards in two cars
on the Lake Shore road, were

Chicago, July 29. If the Freight
Handlers Union should attempt to
enforce an order forbidding all mem
bers from handling consignments
to and from the stockyards, the ac

! the Federal authorities will be ask
led to intervene. So asserted Dan

was adop'.ed by its 'council, and
then suspended pending a call from

HEAT WAS FIERCB.
For Webfoot yMercary Spared High
Hottest Day of Season.
The hottest day of the present
summer was last Sunday. Ther
mometers soared during the day as
they have not soared before in a
long time, and fat people perspired
and mopped their brows as they
don'f want to do again. The high
point in the' temperature for the
day was about three o'clock in the
afternoon. Thermometers on Main
street at that time were lingering
around the ioo mark The one at
Greffoz's registered ioi, at Rose's,
ioo, and at other places 98 and 99.
The big maximum thermometer in
the weather office at the college
shows that the highest point touch
ed was 98, which is high enough.
At three, - however, a welcome
change in conditions came, such a
change as is only usual in favored
Corvallis and contiguous territory,
a sea breeze, fresh from the ocean
set in, and before the evening was
passed, it was cool enough for an
overcoat or wrap.
