Pittsburg, July 1. Fifteen plants
were crippled or entirely tied up at

plate mills of the United States Steel
corporation, according- to tho claims
made by the officials of the Amalga
mated Association of Iron, Steel &
Tinplate workers. Tho number of men

Tho strike is the outcome of tho open

Defeat for tho Amalgamated associ
ation, it is said, virtually means the

A wage agreement has been reached
by the Amalgamated Association of
Iron, Steel & Tinworkers and repre

Chicago, July 1. Two hundred and
twenty new laws passed by the last
Illinois legislature went into effect to
day. Some of the big measures are
not operative before next January,

chief laws effective today are:
Forbidding women to work in fac
tories, or any place where machinery
is employed, more than 10 hours a day.
This does not apply to mercantile es
Permitting automobile drivers to de
fend themselves in court under law
permitting "reasonable speed."

Making it a felony to detain any
woman in a resort on charge of debt.
Providing for the examination and
licensing of barbers.
Inheritance tax law, which will add
millions to state revenue.
Punishing landlords who bar children
Creating forest preserves.
Pawnbrokers required to hold all ar
tides a year and cutting interest to 3
per cent a month.
8300,000,000 FOR NAVY.
They woro accompanied by a roaring
sound, and aro said to have had a
stronger and moro undulatory move
ment than tho earthquake of last Do
comber, which destroyed Messinn, Rcg
gioand other cities; laid wnBto many
villages in Calabria, and killed 200,000
Although tho shocks today had no
such terrible consequences, tho 25,000
residents of tho city were thrown into
terror. They ran into tho Btreets panic-
strickon, and last night nearly tho en
tire population encamped in tho open
places, fearing to return to the struc
tures that havo served them as homes
sinco the city was destroyed. Tho
broken walls of the old ruins wero
thrown to the ground, and Messina was
for a few minutes smothored in a cloud
The casualties wero few, and tho
only persons killed, so far as known,
were a young woman and her child.

The first Bhock was followed quickly
by a second shock, and tho people fled
pellmell to tho American quarter,
which they seemed to feel was their
safest place of refuge. So great was
tho rush to the American houses that
the authorities wero unablo to check
The Boldiers soon drew a cordon
around the square and a guard was
mounted at the bridge leading to it,
Many of the panic-stricken people were
driven off, and orders were issued that,
pending further instructions, no one
should be permitted to occupy the
All commerce ceased in the city and
tho places of business along the sea-
front wero closed.
JReggio suffered almost as severe a
shock as Messina, but no -casualties

Taormina, but no damage was dono
there. Within 24 hours the shocks at

BIG COLONIZATION SCHEME.
Land Opening by Deschutes Irrigation
Company Must Walt.
Salem After listening toon oxtond
cd argument by C. E. S. Wood, repre
senting A. M. Drake, of Bond, tho dot)
ort land board decided to hold up tho
application of (ho Doschutos Irrigation
& Power company for tho opening to
salo of 2,320 acres of land, embraced
in its latest Caroy act project on tho
Deschutes until tho board can find time
personally to inspect tho projoct at its
forthcoming visit to Eaatorn Oregon,
within n month.
Wood made an exhaustive argumont,
charging that tho Deschutes Irrigation
& Power company is not complying
with tho plans and specifications for
tho reclamation of the arid lands under
its Carey land contracts with tho state;
that it is wrongfully diverting tho
water taken from tho Doschutes for
tho reclamation of one segregation for
the temporary reclamation of lands
listed under another contract so it can
placo tho land on tho market; that tho
company is heavily burdened with fl
nancial difficulties and has mortgaged
tho settlors' rights to cover its defi
ciencies; that it can never insuro the
settler a perpetual water right under
tho circumstances which now exist and
are in prospect; and charging the des
ert land board with open violation of
its obligations to tho state and the Bot
tier undor tho provisions of the Carey
act and tho irrigation laws of tho Btato
in granting the irrigation company in'
creases of lien and other privileges.

Expenditure Necessary to Save British
Empire, Says Beresford.
London, July 1. Advocating a plan
of naval expansion, already submitted
to the admiralty, which practically pro
vides the doubling of Great Britain's
immense sea force, Admiral Lord
Charles Beresford today declared the
national situation was more serious
than was generally known. Ho said
there was no use in precipitating a
panic, but it was best to be on the safo
Ten dreadnaughts in addition to the
four provisional ships already provid
ed for, will be built before March 81,
1914, under the admiral's plan. The
scheme also includes 16 second class
cruisers, 18 commerce protecting cruis
ers and 20 ships of a new type similar
to torpedo boat destroyers, but larger.
His estimate of the cost of this plan
is about $300,000,000.
Slot Machines Barred.
San Francisco, July 1. With the
coming of midnight last night the
whirr and rattle of nearly 4,000 slot
machines in this city was stilled and
nickels will be a drug on the market.
The ordinance placing all manner of
nickel-m-the-Blot cigar and drink
gambling devices under the ban went
into effect July 1, and the police have
received orders to rigidly enforce the
prohibition. It was estimated when
the supervisors were considering the
ordinance that $12,000,000 has been
placed annually in these devices.
Orvillo Wright Handles
Washington, July 2. Calm and con
fident, Orvillo Wright late last night
encircled the Fort Myer drill grounds
time after time in his. aeroplane in
three separate flights. Ho was seen
Shortly before 8 o'clock the aero
plane was wheeled from its shed to the
starting track. Previously the field
had been cleared by a troop of cavalry.
After the motor had been tested, the
propellers wero cranked and Orville
turned on the motor and released tho
machine. As it neared the end of the
starting rail., Orville turned up the
forward horizontal rudder and the
machine arose into the air. It was a
Down the field the aeroplane sailed,
curved gracefully about the lower end
and back up the east side of the field
along tho edge of Arlington cemetery.
The first round was made in 50 sec
onds. Five times the machine circled
the field, attaining a height that varied
from 15 to 30 feet On the sixth
round Mr. Wright came to earth with
in 100 feet of the starting point, com
pleting the flight in exactly five min
The landing was perfect, the ma
chine swooping down in successive
glides until within a few feet of the
earth, when Orville pulled the string
that stops his motor and the aeroplane
glided smoothly over the grasR on its
skids until it came to a stop. Again
the aeroplane was placed in position on
the starting rail, the motor started.
and again the machine encircled the
field with ease and grace. Mr. Wright
approached dangerously near the start
ing tower and flew within a few feet
of the stables that line the field. It
was noticed that at times the motor
skipped, but this seemed to have no
effect on operating the aeroplane.
