Dalrymple Throws Wet Blank
et on Public Ownership.
Glasgow Man Tells What Ho Thinks
of Chicago Mayor's Pet Scheme,
but It' Is Received Coolly.
Cause of Coolness.
CHICAGO. July 10. (Special.) Mayor
.Dunne has heard from James Dalrymple.
The Glasgow traction manager, who came
to Chicago a month ago at the request
of the city executive to advise iirregard
to the municipalization of traction lines,
has sent a preliminary report, and his
views as to the compatibility of municipal
ownership with politics in Chicago are
said to be depressing to Chicago's
municipal-ownership Mayor. In fact, it
Is admitted, that the report is in the
nature of a "wet blanket."
Mr. Dunne does not call it a "report."
He styles it a "communication," and
shows no enthusiasm over Its receipt.
In view of the parting remarks of the
Glasgow man, in which there was so
little solace to the immediate municipal
ownership advocate, the Mayor has de
cided to be cautious in making public
any letter from him. "While he himself
has abandoned the immediate municipal
operation plan for one of municipal con
trol through a private corporation, he de
clines to take any chances on handing
out a letter which might prove a boom
erang until he has carefully studied Its
The unobtrusive entrance of Mr. Dal
rymple's "communication" into Chicago
and the Mayor's office had an exact par
allel in the equally unobtrusive exit of
Mr. Dalrymple himself out' of Chicago
arfd the Mayor's office.. The Mayor wel
comed Mr. Dalrymple to Chicago with a
loud fanfare of trumpets. He went to the
depot to meet him, he personally con
ducted his guest to the Auditorium
Hotel and he placed the Glasgow expert
on bis -right hand at a banquet the night
after that much-advertised man's arrival.
Afterward Mr. Dalrymple became well
acquainted with T. E. Mitten, superin
tendent of the Chicago City Railway
Company; with Marshal Field and with
other magnates closely connected with
the traction companies. The Mayor then
developed a .sudden frigidity toward his
guest, and, when Mr. Dalrymple cut his
three weeks' visit short and went home
at the end of ten days, there was such an
enormous amount of pressing business at
the City Hall about 6 o'clock in the after
noon, when Mr. Dalrymple's train was
due to leave for the East, that the Mayor
was unable to go to the depot to bid him
farweli. Mr. Mitten, as It happened, was
on his way to Buffalo, and he supplied
the Mayor's place in speeding the parting
here, whose awakening from the sleep of
fancied security is the Imperative need
of the hour."
Hedin's description of the apathy of the
people seems only slightly overdrawn. The
King and the Crown Prince are said to
have succeeded in inspiring the aristo
cratic and military personages who have
hitherto made up the war party with the
conviction that there must be no war,
except in the event of a wanton a'ttack by
Norway. Surprisingly little Interest is
manifested in the forthcoming report of
the Riksdag commission, on which hinges
the question of war or peace. The report
is expected this week.
Norway Offers to Make Prince
Charles Her King.
LONDON. July 11. The Standard's
Chrlstiania correspondent says that
the Norwegian throne has been offered
to Prince Charles of Denmark, second
son of Crown Prince Frederick. Prince
Charles is the husband of Princess
Maud Alexandra, of Great Britain.
Denver Offices Handed Over, but
Treasurer Holds On.
DENVER. July 10. The Supremo
Court today denied the petitions for
a. rehearing in the cases of the Demo
cratic county officials ousted by a re
cent decision of the court and moJI
fia.lits original order so as tt ullow
judgment to issue from the Supreme
Court at once in all the cases.
Later Bailiff Watson, accompanied
by the successful Republican contest
antr for the county offices, appeared
at the Courthouse and demanded that
the Democrats vacate. All complied
without protest with the exception of
City and County Treasurer Elder, who
sail he could not. In justice to his
bondsmen, surrender his office and
possession of the books and funds
until the court order was made by the
Supreme Court separating the city
funds from the county funds, as he
maintains that he is still City Treas
urer. Tomorrow, contempt proceedings
will be Instituted against him for the
purpose of securing a guiding order
from the court.
Governor Hoch Seeks Way of Re
moving State Treasurer.
TOPEKA. Kan., July 10. After an
all-day conference with his advisers.
Governor Hoch has not yet decided
what to Jo about requiring State Treas
urer Kelley to vacate his office. The
Governor's legal advisers told him
there was no law under which he
could require the Treasurer to give a
bond of 5500.000 to repay the old bond.
Tlie conference then considered means
of relieving Kelley of hie office.
Governor Hoch may bring action in
the courts, but this would be a. long
process. There is some talk of calling
a special session of the Legislature to
bring impeachment proceedings.

Sven Hedln Says Norway Is Prepar
ing to Attack Her.
CHICAGO. 111.. July 10. (Special.) The
Daily News' correspondent at Stockholm
cables as follows:
War between Sweden and Norway, with
the Norwegians as the aggressors, is de
clared to be an imminent danger by Dr.
Sven Hedin. the well-known explorer, who
has addressed a strong appeal to Swedes
in America to come to the rescue of the
fatherland by raising a naval-defense fund
of $5,000,000. Hedln asserts that the peo
ple of Sweden have fallen into unbearable
apathy with regard to the union crisis,
and require urgently to have aggressive
patriotism preached to them by Sweden's
sons and daughters across the sea.
Norway, according to Hedin. is realizing
Sweden's indifference and unpreparedness,
and is preparing for attack. It has made
all Its plans for falling upon Sweden when
it deems the psychological moment has
"Fellow-countrymen In America," says
Hedin's appeal, "Incredible as It may
sound, received my solemn assurance that
Norway at the present moment is our
country's single enemy. It is armed to
the teeth by lana and sea with borrowed
foreign capital, secured on the pretense
that it was wanted for railway construc
tion. An alliance with you, an alliance of
sympathy and substantial support. Is the
only alliance Sweden needs. No matter
how light your financial contributions,
your -vigorous initiative would have a
powerful effect on your drowsy kinsmen
Three Saloons at Iola Blown Up by
Explosion Which Is Heard,
for Miles Around.
IOLA, Kan.,Jjily 10. Three saloons in
West street were wrecked with dynamite
early today. Much damage was done to
other business property in the vicinity,
and the loss is conservatively estimated
at 5100,000. J. E. Thorpe, the owner of
one of the saloons, was injured, but not
seriously. The dynamite was exploded
apparently by some temperance reformer.
No arrests have been made.
The wrecked saloons were known as the
Red Light, the Blue Front and the Eagle.
There were two distinct explosions, each
of terrific force. Besides demolishing the
three saloons, the explosions damaged the
Palace shoe store, the drugstores of Camp
bell & Burrell and Cowan & Ausherman,
across the alley in the rear, and shat
tered dozens of plate glass windows- in
the business section. The explosions were
heard at Humboldt, nine miles distant.
The Mayor has offered a reward for
the perpetrator, and called a special meet
ing of the City Council to consider the
situation. There has been much agitation
in Iola recently to close the saloonB.
which have run openly in violation of the
prohibition law, and Governor Hoch had
been appealed to to aid In closing the
He AVrltes to Newspaper Betraying
That He Is Dynamiter.
IOLA. Kan.. July 10. Iola Is quiet
again tdfflght after a day of the most
intense excitement as the result of
the blowing up of three saloons here
last night. Conservative estimates' of
the damage resulting from the explo
sion place it at $100,000.
The Mayor has sworn In a largo
number of deputies, wno xne patr tiling
the streets tonight.
That the outrage was committed by
an irresponsible person wis maJo
clear tonight, when a number of Iot
ters were received by a local newspa
per from a man' signing the name C
L. Mclvln. who is in hiding in this vi
cinity.; The tenor of the letter indicates
that the writer is Insane, and that he
blew up the saloons here last night.
Accused of Inflammatory Utter
ances, He Fights Policeman.
IOLA, Kan.. Jul 10. E. H. Funston.
ex-Congressman and father of Brigadier-General
Fred Funston. was ar
rested here tonight charged with In
flammatory utterances. Mr. Funston,
in talking or the explosion which blew
up three saloons here last night, said
the occurrence would have been avoid
ed if the officers of the law had done
their duty in enforcing the laws.
Funston resisted the policeman who
attempted to arrest him and a fight
resulted, in which the policeman
struck Funston, strapped him to his
buggy and took him to Jail. Later
Funston was released and he swore out
a warrant for the policeman.
The policeman charged that Funston
came to town with a Winchester and a
revolver, that he bought some cart
ridges and had them in his buggy
when arrested. Funston is a radical
au enforcement man. His hearing was
set for next Saturday.
