Thirty Injured in Trainwreck
on Great Northern. -
On Way to Medical Convention, They
Hasten to Aid of Fellow-Passengers
Seven Cajrs Burned
and People Scorched.
ST. PAUL, July 6. AJbout 30 people -were
injured, one seriously, in the wreck of the
Great Northern westbound flyer at Spring
Brook. 21 miles east of Williston. N. D.
Seven cars were burned by a flre which
broke out immediately after the wreck,
presumably caused by the explosion of a
gas tank under the smoking-car. The
mallear and the special car Jollet, con
taining Dr. Frank Billings, of Chicago,
and a party of physicians on the way to
Portland, did not leave the rails and were
unharmed by the flames.
The officials of the road here say that it
was a miracle that numbers were not
killed, as the train was running at a
high rate of speed when it left the rails.
According to their report, there was no
spreading of the rails, and they are un
able to accdunt for the accident. As the
cars left the track they partially up
ended, but did not break In two.
Most of the injured suffered from burns,
the flames spreading so rapidly that many
were scorched before they could be re
moved from the wreckage. Dr. Billings
and the physicians in his party at once
took charge of the Injured and dressed
their wounds, pending the arrival of a
relief train from Willlston.
All of the Injured were able to resume
their Journey today except C. H. Strieker,
who is reported to be in a serious condi
tion. He was in the baggage-car, on his
way from St. Paul to Boise, Idaho, and
was badly cut and bruised. All mail and
baggage was saved.

Linievitch Claims Crushing Victory
and Capture of Positions.
ST. PETERSBURG. July 6. General
Linievitch. in a telegiam to the Emperor
dated July 5. and confirming the defeat
of the Japanese .at Sanvantse. when a
Japanese battalion was annihilated, says'
that after the capture of the position and
the flight of the Japanese, the latter were
reinforced and resumed the light, but all
their attacks were repulsed.
The Russians captured considerable
quantities of supplies, and held the posi
tion until ordered to. retire. The Japanese
losses. General Linievitch says, were enor
mous. Many Russians were wounded in
such i manner as to prove that the Japa
nese were using dumdum bullets.
Captain of Garonne Puts Them in
Irons and Threatens Shooting.
SEATTLE, July C Russian Tefugecs
being taken from Shanghai to Odessa on
the Seattle steamship Garonne became so
riotous between the Chinese port and
Singapore that Captain Robert Lawe.
master of the ship, was forced to place
the ringleaders in Irons.
Upon arriving at Singapore. Captain
Lawe appealed to the Russian Consul to
have the more turbulent of his passengers
taken from the ship. His request was
refused, and he promptly purchased
enough rifles and ammunition to arm his
crew. Then he clapped more of the dis
turbers In irons, and. subduing the rest
by a show of arms, continued on his voy
age. Reaching Odessa, the Garonne found the
town in a state of siege, and accordingly
went to Theodosla, where she arrived in
safety, according to a dispatch received
today from Captain Lawe by Frank Wa
terhouse, owner of the Garonne. '

Japan's New Demand.
ST. PETERSBURG. July 6. General
Linlevitch's telegraphic report to the Em
peror charging the Japanese- with using
dumdum bullets will probably be made
the subject of a communication to the
powers protesting against the violation of
the Geneva convention.
Among the Liberals a story is being in
dustriously circulated and believed that
Japan, at the Washington peace confer

if concluded, shull be submitted for the
ratification of the Russian people. In order
to insure, its observance In case of a

TOPEKA. Kan.. July 6.-The Standard
Oil Company has filed an answer in the
Supreme Court to the ouster suit brought
against it by the State of Kansas. The
answer denies everything alleged by the
state against the Standard, and In addi
tion, as its main argument, attacks the
validity of 'the Kansas anti-trust law.
If the court again declares the law to
be valid the case will be appealed to
the United States Supreme Court.
Hezcklah Hall Finally Captured for
Murder in Virginia.
CHEHALIS. Wash.. July 6. (Special.)
Hezeklah Hall, a Virginia murderer, was
captured at Toledo today by Marshal
Charles Lyons, of that place, assisted by
two townsmen. Hall is wanted for kill
ing John Grubb. at Jonesville. Va., June
23. 1P91. He admits his Identity and says
he shot Grubb three times, alleging the
latter was attacking him. Sheriff Urqu
hart and Deputy Schllttlcr drove to To
ledo and returned with the xjriwner at
midnight. "
Hall came to Toledo last July and had
been about there and at The Dalles, Or.,
since dodging officers, as he knew he
was being shadowed. Today he and a
relative named Dave Smith went into
Toledo and got drunk. Marshal Lyon
watched them, and after they went out
into the edge of town and lay down to
sleep, he captured his man. One hand
cuff was slipped upon Hall before he
awoke and a big 38-caliber revolver taken
from him. Then he made a desperate
fight for liberty, but was overpowered
and an eight-Inch knife taken from him.
While driving here Hall, who if 50 years
old. told the officers he had killed eight
men. but three were Indians in Oklahoma
and he didn't count them. He wa? a
guerrilla during the Civil War. Sheriff
Urquhart regards the capture as one of
the most Important ever made in the
West, owing to Hall's criminal record.

Direct Primary nnd the Scnntorship.
SALEM. Or., July fl. (To the Editor.)
In The Oregonlan this morning there Is a
discussion of the probable effect of the di
rect .primary law upon the question of elect
ing United States Senators, and it is sug
gested that the Legislative candidate who
pledges himself to vote for that man for
Senator who receives the man votes at the
primaries will be sure of success.
Let us suppose that there are two candi
dates for the Legislature from Multnomah
County. One candidate pledges himself to
support that man for United States Senator
who receives the largest vote in the state
at the Republican primaries. The other man!
says. I am not answerable to anybody out
side of Multnomah County, and I shall sup
port for Senator that man who carries th
l&rgest vote In Multnomah County without
reference to the vote in the state at large.
Other things being equal, does anyone sup
pose that the man who takes the latter po
sition will not be elected?
The direct primary law will not obliterate
factional lines. Multnomah County may
strongly favor a man whom Clackamas
County bitterly opposes, and the represen
tatives of the two counties going to the
Legislature to represent their constituents
cannot harmonize upon the favorite candi
date of either county. Thus, working at
cross purposes, these two Representatives
will be faithfully representing their re
spective constituents, and either one. or
both. Is safe In defying the sentiment of the
state at large, so long as his own constitu
ents Indorse his course.
Whatever effect the direct primary law
may have In other ways. It has not, ap
parently, made the Senatorial problem any
Jess complex, C S- 3.

and pensions of public school teachers
reported as follows:
One of the most striking development! of
recent years In connection with city schools
is In the exacting nature of the requirements
for teachera. Such requirements are becom
ing more and more- revere. The idea that
any high school graduate can teach school
has quite generally been succeeded by the
conviction that no person, however well edu
cated generally, can properly teach without
special preparation for that duty. The high
er standards which are being InMsted upon
for the teachers must lead logically to better
compensation. The Inadequacy of the sal
aried in eame cltlta, after the training that
la . necestory to secure the positions, has
been usfd successfully as an argument for
their Increase, and In some cities it has been
admitted where financial reasons have stood
In "the way of granting the advance.
The fact collected relating to salaries rep
resent c5 per cent, of the cities and towns of
SOCK) or more Inhabitant.
uch cities and towns In the United States
number 547 and employ nearly 1CO.OOJ teach
ers. From 492 of the, or 00 per cent, salary
data more or les complete were secured,
and for 467, or k5.4 per cent, complete reports
were received.
The total number of teachers and supervis
ing officers in the 467 cities and towns was
92.S02. Of this number, 70.230 or 75.0 per cent
were teachers (not Including principals) in
elementary schools, and all except 15ou of the
latter number were women. That i to nay.
the women teachers In the elementary schools
constitute 74 per cent of the enttte number
of persons employed either as teachers or In
supervisory positions In connection with the
schools of these 467 cities. High school teach
ers (not Including principal!) make up SC25 or
8.6 per cent of the whole number, and prin
cipals of elementary schools 6213 or '6.7 per
The average salary of high school teachers
(not Including principals) was 41046. the aver
ago for the women being $?03 and for the
men (1303. This large difference Is due to a
considerable extent to the fact that such a
large per cent of the men are In the cities
of 200.000 population or over, where salaries
are high an compared with those In the city
of average size.
The average yearly nalary of principals of
elementary schools was 11163. the average for
women being ?970 and for men $1542. The
greater percentage for men is to a considera
ble extent due u the fact that such a large
portion of the cutlre number of men are In
the lrer cities.
The average yearly salary of the teachers
la elementary schools was $061. the average
fc-r the women being $650 and for the men
$1101. More than one-half of the men teach
ers In elementary schools are In the three
largfrt cities, with population of 1.000,000 or
over New Tork, Chicago and Philadelphia
where salaries are relatively high.
The average salaries of all the classes of
teachers for all the cities decrease steadl'y
with the decrease In the size of the cillra.
The tendency of rec-nt jears has been to
make the requirement for teachers In city
ochoota more and more ievere. The candidate
without experience, unless a graduate of the
city normal or training school, stands small
chance of securing a cit position. At the
same time the salaries offered are low, but
to offset this In a measure provision bi made
in many cities for a regular Increase with
each year (or perhaps two or three) of service
for a definite period, the increase with satis
factory service being practically guaranteed.
The school authorities can unquestionably
hire teachers for country schools for ?25 to
f30 a month, or even less, and pay by the
month for only the lowest number of month
desired, but such a policy is a sacrifice,
not of the Inteicsts of the teachers primarily,
but of that of the pupils. Experience In a
teacher add as greatly to the value of the
services rendered as In any skilled occupa
tion. A movement towards establishing a minimum
.fttlary law by state enactment has had up
port In several states, and in Indiana. Mary
land. Pennsylvania and In WVst Virginia,
such a law haa already been adopted and put
Into operation.
The teachers of long service, from Informa
tion gathered by the committee, constituted
a considerable portion of the total number.
3 5 per cent of the men and .6 per cent of
the women having taught 10 years w over,
while 10 per cent of the men and 4.5 per cent
of the women had taught 30 years or over.
Of all the teachers In 333 cities of 8000 popu
lation or over. 51.7 per cent had taught les
than lo years.
Hardly a beginning ban as yet been made In
the United States towards creating a system
of pensions for teacher. In making this
statement the committee desires to emphasize
the distinction between a pension system prop
erly so-called, and all the various arhemes
of mutual aid. Including retirement funds
and old age stipends that have been organ
ized, and are maintained primarily by the
teachers themselves, and at their own expense.
In this matter the United States, which might
have ben expected to go far In advance of
other countries If 'the general Interest In
public school education alone had been made
the basis of prediction, has In reality fallen

The committee, after carefully reviewing

ties should be discouraged for the following
Because they are unnecessary In high
schools; because they are factional and stir
up strife and contention: because they form
premature and unnatural friendships; be
cause they are selfish: because they are
snobbish: becnuse they dissipate energy and
proper ambition; because they set wrong
standards of excellence; because they art
narrow; because rewards are not based on
merit, but on fraternity vows; because they
Inculcate a reeling of self-sufficiency in the
members; because they lessen frankness and
cordiality toward teachers; because they are
hidden and Inculcate dark lantern methods:
because they foster a feeling of self
importance; because high school boys
are too young for club life; because
they foster the tobacco habit; be
cause they are expensive and foster habits,
of extravagance; because of the changing
membership from year to year making them
liable to bring discredit and disgrace to the
school; because they weaken the efficiency
of. and bring politics into the legitimate or
ganizations of the school; and because they
detract Interest from study.
Secret fraternities are especially con
demned In public schools which are essen

Ehe Was Told That an Operation Was
Inevitable. How She Escaped It
When a physician tells a woman suf

that an operation is necessary, the very
thought of the knife and the operating
table strikes terror to her heart, and
our hospitals are full of women coming
for ovarian or iromb operations.

Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound after physicians have advised
operations, no woman should submit to
one without first trying the Vegetable
Compound and writing Mrs. Pinkham,
Lynn, Mass., for advice, which is free.
Miss Margret Merkley of 275 Thjrd
Street, Milwaukee, Wis., writes:
Dear Mrs. Pinkbam:
"Loss of strength, extreme nervousness
shooting pains through the pelvic organs,
bearing down pains and cramps compelled
me to seek medical advice. The doctor, after
making an examination, said I had ovarian
trouble and ulceration and advised an opera
tion. To this I strongly objected nnd decided
to try Lydia E. Pinkh&ft's Vegetable Com
pound. "The ulceration traickly healed, all
the bad symptoms disappeared and I am
once more strong, vigorous and well."

said Bishop Joseph F. Berry, president
of the Epworth League, today. "Our
church, as well as other churches, is
so permeated with the spirit of com
mercialism that the spirit of Christ Is
crowded into the background. Thirst
for wealth and social position seems to
have a strong hold on the minds of our
young people and heroic measures are
necessary to keep them from being swept
away on the great wave of commercial
ism. I am optimistic, however, and am
hopeful for the future."
The league has now about l.C0.0 mem
bers. Bishop Berry said, and Is con
stantly growing.
