MAKE VIOLENT THREATS.
Heney Warns Defense He Will Not
Take Insults in Future.
San Francisco) Feb. 20. Recalling
the attempted assassination of last
November, Francis J. Heney today
charged that Henry Ach, attorney for
Abraham Ruef, knew of the intention
of Morris Haas to shoot the prosecutor.
The accusation was flung at the attor
neys for the defense during one of the
most heated exchanges that have oc
curred during the trial of Patrick Cal
noun, and before the session assumed
its usual calm complexion Judge Wil
liam P. Lawlor had threatened two of
the belligerent atorneys with imprison
ment in the county jail. There were
references to .armed gun men, to the
use of dynamite and to the prospects of
imprisonment before the court succeed
ed in inducing both sides to lay aside
the immediate basis of disagreement
and cease their objectionable references
MANY'WIRES'bOWN IN EAST.
Telegraph Companies Expect Weeks
of. Repair Work.
Chicago, Fob. ID. In point of dam
ago dono, it wiis learned today that tho
storms of last Saturday, Sunday and
Monday were the worst oyer cxpori
tm m m 4
enced by the telegraph companies and
railroads. Thousands upon thousands
of poles are atill down, and hundreds
of miles of wires are prostrate.
Throughout tho states of Indiana,
Ohio, Now York, West Virginia, Penn
sylvania, Maryland, New Jorsoy, Doto
ware and all of Now England, tclo'
graphic servico is curtailed, and in sec
tions discontinued. One Eastern rail
road alono is said to have lost 80 miles,
of cable. Every repair man in tho
afflicted territory is still working to
the limit, but resetting polos in frozen
ground is slow work and it will bo
weeks, it is said, before normal condi
tions arc restored.
ENGULF PERSIAN HAMLETS.
Quakes Swallow Whole Villages With
Teheran, Feb. 19. Tho government
of Burujurd, a town in Southwestern
Persia, has sent out agents to investi
gate tho damage wrought by the earth
quake of January 23. The center of
disturbance apparently was two days
journoy from Burujurd. Up to tho
present time only meager reports have
reached here. The devastation was
particularly severe in tho mountainous
region between Burujurd and Luristan
province. It has been already estab
lished that 15 villages were wholly or
partially destroyed and it is estimated
that the total number will undoubtedly
be more than 50.
Only a small proportion of the inhab
itants or the area where shocks were
most severe escaped. Some villages
disappeared completely, and no trace
can bo found of tho hamlets of Bahrem
and Leben. It appears that not a sin
gle soul belonging to these communi
ties was left alive. A severe quako
was felt at Ispahan, 100 miles away,
the morning of January 23.
VON BUELOW IN CONTROL.
German Chancellor Again in Kaiser's
Favor as Advisor.
Berlin, Feb. 19. "Upon the
WAR THREATENS TURKEY.
Hostile Races Ready to Fly at Each
Constantinople, Feb. 20. The old
troubles in Macedonia threaten to
break out again as badly as ever and
strong measures are needed to restore
tranquility in Asia minor, especially in
Diarbekir, Kaisanyeh and Bassoora,
where the Mussulmans and Armenians
are about to fly at each other's throats.
One of the strange symptoms devel
oping here is the fact that naval offi
cers are holding meetings on all war
ships "to consider the attitiude of the
new minister of marine." Army ofii
cers are also holding meetings.
Turkey before long may be convulsed
with massacres and civil war, although
the pressure exerted by the menacing
external situation tends to prevent an
outbreak fof internal strife.
Nevada Dooms Gambling.
Carson, Nov., Feb. 20. By a voto
of 26 to 19 the members of tho Nevada
assembly today ordered that the bill to
prohibit licensed gambling within the
state be made a special order of busi
ness next Wednesday afternoon. The
committee on public morals reported
the bill today, recommending that it bo
amended to make the bill effective
from January 10, 1910, instead of
from September 1, 1909, The bill in
this form will undoubtedly pass.
Grove Made National Park.
Washington, Feb. 20. The presir
dent today signed the bill making the
Calaveras big tree grove a national
park. Tho pen which the president
used was handed to Representative
Smith, of California, to be presented
to Mrs. Lovell White, president of the
California Outdoor Art league.
tion of the finance problem depends the
power and Bafety of the nation."
These words, spoken by Chancellor
von Buelow, in an address delivered
before the German Agricultural asso
ciation, signalize the government's
purpose to push tho fight for the
finance bill with increased vigor, taken
with the chancellor's declaration that
he "is likely to remain in office longer
than his adversaries hope."
'Ihey are thought to mean that
Prince von Buelow is again restored to
favor, since it is improbable that ho
would make such a remark without the
authorization of the kaiser.
The forthcoming fight in the reichs
tag promises to assume an acutely
critical character, as every important
feature of Prince von Buelow's plan
for increasing the nation's revenue is
violently opposed by one faction or an
other. On the other hand, the steady
increase in the annual deficit in time
of peace is creating a situation which
the government feels to be impossible
Object to Panama Line,
Sacramento, Cal., Feb. 19. By a
vote of 43 to 30, the amendment by
Assemblyman Grove L. Johnson, of
Sacramento, striking out all references
to the report of United States Senator
Joseph L. Bristow, of Kansas, special
Panama Railroad commissioner, in the
resolution by Senator J. BrSanford,
calling upon congress to establish a
government owned line.-of steamships
between California ports and Panama
was made this afternoon by the lower
house of the legisliaturo. This places
the assembly on record as being op
posed to the proposed b plan to estab
lish a steamship line to compete with
the Harriman interests.
High Honor to Dr. Angell.
Ann Arbor, Mich., Feb. 19. Dr.
James B. Angell submitted his resig
nation as president of the University
of Michigan today and was offered by
the regents the position of chancellor
at a salary of $4,000 a year, with the
continued free use of the president's
mansion. The duties of the chancel
lorship are to be such as suggested by
the new president, and as Dr. Angell
may be willing and able to perform.
Dr. Angell recently celebrated his 80th

university since J 871.
