Four Dead, Many Insane, 50
Prostrated Hot Wave's Toll
in New York.
Xo Cooling Breeze Relieves Suffer

cury Climbs to 100.
NEW YORK. Juno 21. (Special.) Four
deaths, three of them In Brooklyn, many
persons driven insane and 50 or more
prostrations, marked today the hottest
as well as the longest day of the year.
The thermometer registered "88 at 6
o'clock. Every park In the lower part
of the city was crowded, and Central
Park and Riverside Drive were the goals
of swarms of sweltering men, women and
At Coney Island, it was estimated that
at least 10,000 eprsons slept on the sands.
Captain Galvln had 35 patrolmen detailed
to watch over them. Coney was crowded
all day long, the number of visitors be
ing estimated at 150,000.
In the city the recreation piers had not
a foot of spare space. Entire families
left their stuffy homes to breathe the
air which was fresh, if 'not cool. Along
the North and East rivers the residents
of the lower East and. West sides, which,
because of congested conditions, suffered
more than other sections, thousands spent
the night on roofs or fire escapes. The
penny ice cream and lemonade vendors
did a thriving business.
But New York City was not the hot
test spot on earth, according: to the
Government Weather Bureau. In Wash
ington, Senators and Congressmen were
sweltering with a temperature of 100.
Cincinnati was the next hottest spot In
the East, the mercury there mounting
to 86. St. Louis and Boston suffered
with the thermometer registering 84
and 82 respectively. In all these places
the weather was cloudy and. because of
the high humidity, there was much suf
fering and many prostrations. It was.
74 in Atlantic City and, with a clear
sky, was Just about the most comfort
able spot in the East.
Comrade, Half Drowned, Held
Above Water Until Police Come.
NEW YORK, June 21. A prosaic
police report told today how the cour
age and endurance of 18-year-old An
tonio Teleso, an East Side rlewsboy.
saved the life yesterday of Dominick
i'redo, 8 years old, as the boy was
drowning in a water tank on the roof
of a six-story tenement house where
he lives. .
When playing on the roof with the
other children, the Fredo boy climbed
to the top of-the water tank, which is
12 feet high. Sitting astride the edge,
he .lost his balance ..and- fell into the
water. "
When the-, policemen, hurriedly sum-'
mcned, reached the roof,; they beheld
a hand tightly gripping the edge of
the water tank. The policemen
scrambled to the top of the tank and.
found that the hand clinging to the
edge was that of young Teleso, whose
other hand clutched In an unbreakable
grasp the collar of little Dominick,
thus keeping him above the water.
Leaning over, one of the policemen
picked up the smaller boy and then
dragged out Teleso, who was almost
To all appearance Dominick was
dead, but the policemen finally resus
citated him.
Milwaukee Road to Guard Against
Congestion In Chicago.
CHICAGO, June 21. The Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad Com
pany has begun work on one of the
largest freight yard terminals in the
Chicago shipping district, to be located
between Mannheim and Bensonville, on
the Council Bluffs division of the road.
The location Is about 15 miles from the
Union passenger station of Chicago.
The purpose of the company in es
tablishing a mammoth outside terminal
is to prevent the repetition of traffic
congestion such as was experienced
in Chicago by all railroads last Winter
and which cost the loss to the St. Paul
road of nearly $500,000 revenue in a
single month.
The cost of the present improvement
will be approximately $600,000. In
time, however, .the freight terminal
facilities at the new location, it is
said, will cover four times , as much
ground as the present improvements.
The St. Paul company has purchased
in the vicinity of the two towns named
S00 acres or land, at a cost, of more
than $1,300,000.
As the present plans of improvement
contemplate the development of only
200 acres, 600 acres will be left for
future enlargement. :

ship as did President Roosevelt, is
under $1000 cash bail, pending exam
ination before the United States Com
missioner in Hoboken, N. J., as to
why $3000 worth of Jewelry found on
his person by a customs Inspector was
not declared. His explanation is an un
usual one. He says there were exciting
times on the steamship all the way be
cause of Roosevelt's presence on board

he forgot to declare the Jewelry.

British Awaken to Tales of Horror
Through Workings of Aborigines
Protection Society.
LONDON. June 18. (Special.) Though
the public has grown accustomed to tales
of horror in Congo rubber districts, a sen
sation has been caused by the allegations
made about Soutl American methods in
the correspondence between Foreign Min
ister . Sir Edward Grey and the Anti
Slavery and Aborigines' Protection So
ciety.' The society has for some time been in
possession of sworn information pointing
to practices of a particularly revolting
and barbaric nature, and all. other meth
ods having failed, they have felt im
pelled to appeal to the Foreign Secretary.
Nearly 18 months ago a protocol was
signed between the, Peruvian and Colom
bian governments, agreeing to the ap
pointment of an. international commission
for 'inquiry into the practices- alleged to
be . rampant in the. Putumayon district,
but-the .commission has not yet been ap
pointed. . . ,
What the society now desires, In view
of the information in . its possession,
which Implicates a Brtisrti syndicate and
affects several British subjects, is that
the Foreign Office, in- conjunction with
the United States Government, - should
press for the commission and get to work
and for a British representative to be
appointed on it. - '
.The Indians; of the valley are alleged to
be under conditions of slavery, compelled
to produce rubber without" pay and It
is further alleged that murder, flogging,
torture and other atrocities are common
in the exploitation of the district for rub
ber. It Is known that the British For
eign Office is not without information
and It is believed that Sir Edward Grey
is impressed with the necessity for ac
tion. . Anyway he will be closely ques
tioned in the House as to his Intentions.

At Tekoa, Farmers' Union Makes
Visit Occasion for Safe and
Sane Celebration.
TEKOA. Wash.. June 21. (Special.)
The Oregon Railroad & Navigation
Company's farming demonstration train
was one of the principal attractions to
day at an early and safe and sane
Fourth of July celebrations at Fair
field, attended by 1000 adults and about
as many more children: The celebra
tion was given under auspices 6f the
Farmers' Union and was In the nature
of a picnic with horseraces, athletic
sports, including baseball, as additional
features to the demonstration train.
The train was the center of Interest
for more than two hours Just after
lunch and was met at the depot by the
combined Fairfield and Rockford bands.
The demonstrators were entertained at
an elaborate picnic dinner, at which an
excellent orchestra was in attendance.
Notwithstanding the attracitons fur
nished to the countryside at Fairfield,
big crowds of farmers also visited the
train at the nearby points of Rockford
and Latah. At the former place 350
listened to the lectures and went
through the train, and at the latter
400. Tonight the lectures and exhib
itions were given at Tekoa, where 250
were In attendance. In all the train
showed to 2000 persons today.
At Latah and Tekoa the milking
machine attracted especial attention by
reason of the bringing to the train of
cows that had never been milked by
machine to take the place of the ani
mals carried on the train. At Latah
it was discovered that someone had
been tampering with the machine and
clogged the valve. The trial was aban
doned there but was successfully per
formed at Tekoa.
Attempt to Grab Young Roosevelt's
Watch Meets With RebuffCom-
' motion Attracts Crowd.
LONDON, June 18. (Special.) While
Colonel Roosevelt distinguished him
self as the guest of the Corporation of
the City of London, his son Kermit
scored a little nearer the East End in
quite a different capacity.
Every American knows that Middle
sex street or, as It is more popularly
known. Petticoat lane Is one of the
most extraordinary places In the world
on Sunday mornings. It is the great
emporium of poor Jews. Thither thou
sands of working men and women flock
from all over London on Sunday in the
hope of getting cheap second-hand
clothes and other articles of domestic
utility. Better class people, prompted
by a spirit of curiosity, also come along
many leaving the scene wiser if sad
der men.
It is notorious that the "Lane" is on
these occasions the resort of all sorts
and conditions of men whose mission in
life It is to find pigeons to pluck. All
the sharps and toughs of the racecourse
make the "Lane" the scene of their ac
tivities, and the stranger with a. watch
chain exposed is lucky If he escapes
their , attention and comes away with
his property intact.
Kermit Roosevelt with two friends
venured into the crowd the first Sunday
spent in London, but they had been
warned as to the composition of the
mass of peculiar humanity which one
would meet. So Kermit carefully left
his valuable gold watch at home and
provided himself with a common one,
worth about a dollar or so.
He was not more than a few minutes
In a crowd which was admiring the elo
quence of a dealer in spurious Jewelry,
when a light-fingered operator made a
scientific effort to annex his watch
chain, which was, like the watch, of a
common pattern.
Quick as a flash Kermit caught the
intruder on the point of the Jaw and
sent him Bprawling in the roadway. The
commotion attracted the attention of a
number of plain clothes- constables who
are always on the lookout for thieves
on Sunday mornings, but Kermit re
fused to proceed to the police headquar
ters to prosecute the thief. He was
heard to remark as he walked away
that he had been In tougher corners
than Petticoat lane and had no wish to
spend valuable time in a London police

Occupant Is- Identlifed as Russian
Millionaire, Who Always Drives
Standing, Chained to Hood.
MUNICH, June 18. (Special.) Bavarian
papers have of late had a first-class
mystery, with which to stir local inter
est. Correspondents have been writing
to tell of a strange carriage that has
been seen, with mysterious occupants.
In the park of Furstenreid. The carriage,
they declared, was the old coach In which
the mad King Otto II used to be given
the air at rights. But an official denial
came along with the declaration that
the King has not left the castle of
Furstenreid for years. Within its con
fines, he drags out his lamentable ex
istence. Still, the coach was real, so investi
gations were continued and now the ex
planation is available. One who. has seen
it more than once says:
"For many years this carriage has
rolled through the shady avenues of the
royal park and all . those who saw it
had a shiver of terror, easily understood
when it realized how weird it seemed.
I was coming home through the park
with my children, on bicycles, one even
ing recently, and we were ta'.king of the
phanton coach when one of my sons
cried suddenly: 'Look, papa, here it
"I heard the sound of hoofs, then the
rumble of a heavy carriage and sudden
ly out of the fog loomed up a somber
and mysterious equipage which passed
at a trot directly by us. It was a very
simple, old-fashioned - landau, with the
hood at the back raised. In the car
riage, standing up, was a thin man with
a long beard. It was impossible to dis
tinguish his features but he was cer
tainly attached to the hood of the car
riage by his collar or he could never have
remained standing like that with the
vehicle lurching as it was.
"This strange traveler gazed at a tat
tered may which a lackey held before
him and afterwards extended his hands
as if to say: 'All this Is mine!' The ser
vant showed the map with the listless
and weary gesture of a lunatic's guard
ian, obliged to repeat interminably the
same explanation.
"The aspect of this poor lunatic sus
pended in his carriage, and the silence of
the forest, gave me a lugubrious Im
pression which I have never been able
to shake off. Upon Inquiry, I found
that the mysterious traveler is a Rus
sian, possessor of an immense fortune,
who has been treated for a number of
years at the lunatic asylum situated on
the outskirts of the park of Furstenreid.
One of his whims is never to sit down
while driving in his carriage. That la
why he is attached to the hood."
Two Tramps AV1II Begin Loading
Lumber and More Due in July.
Another siege of lumber activity ,on
the river is prospective through yes
terday's arrivals, while the Norwegian
tramp bark, laden for Dalney and Japa
nese ports, cleared with a cargo meas
uring 2,416,695 feet, valued at $30,722.
She was dispatched by the Pacific
Export Lumber Company, which will
load the tramp Glenlee next month.
The tramp Saint Dunstan arrived int
from Honolulu and will load at St.
Helens and St. Johns, for J. J. Moore
&. Co.
The Norwegian steamer Eir arrived
from Victoria and went to the Port
land Mill to load for Hind, Rolph &
Co., which firm will dispatch two car
goes in July.
Alarm Proves Efficiency of Drills on
River Craft.
Fire broke out aboard the river
steamer America at 2:30 o'clock yes
terday afternoon, while she was
berthed at the foot of Alder street,
ready to leave for lower river points,
and for a short time it appeared as If
the blaze would attain serious propor
tions. It was quenched through prompt
response to the fire, whistle and assist
ance rendered by other craft.
The America's fireman had attempted
to relight the oil burner, but failed,
and without turning off the flow of
fuel rekindled a torch and tossed It
into the -firebox. Immediately there
was a "kickback" that ignited a pile
of oiled sacks. The fireman made brisk
scramble for safety.
. The fire whistle, a device attached
to the boiler and used solely for alarms,
was sounded and the crew of the Iralda,
lying alongside, had the pun.p working
and a hose aboard the America in less
than a minute, while the Tahoma's
company lent a hand and before the
passengers had reached shore the lire
was subdued. The damage was nom
