Pleasure Launches Imperilled,
but Reach Shoro Safely.
Salt Lake, July G. A wind storm
swept over Great Salt lake last even
ing, dashed the heavy water in huge
broadsides against tho Saltnir pavilion
and threatened tho oxistenco of two
small pleasure boats cruising off shore.
After a struggle with tho wind and
tho waves in which tho voyagers were
drenched with salt water, tho launches
regained the pavilion.
In making; a landing, ono of tbe
boats was dashed against tho ' pier and
badly damaged. No one, however, was
injured. Tho gale, though of brief
duration, was one of the most violent
n tho history of tho lako. Rumors
that ono of tho boats had gone down
with GO passengers reached hero and
thcro was great anxiety until the out

nto today passed tho Philippine tariff
bill, and the bill automatically contin

nominal resistance was offered by the
minority to tho measure An amend
mont to tho Philippine bill by John

tion of the United States oventually to
grant independence to tho Philippines,
was rejected.
Washington, July 9. Tho tariff bjl
is now in tho hands of tho conference
committee1. After an hour and a half
of debate tho house today, by a voto of
178 to 151. disagreed to tho senate
amendments. Eighteen Republicans

torfight by a voto of 45 to 34. Ten
Republicans voted with the Democrats
against the bill and ono Democrat vot
ed for the bill.
As it passed the senate, the bill con
tains almost 400 paragraphs. Tho

today. Consequently the enrolling
clerks oro finding tho preparation of
tho bill for tho house an arduous task.
They hayo been following as closely
upon the heels of tho Benate as was
possible, and have tho work well in
hand, but say they probably will not be
able to complete their labors before
late tomorrow.

reaches the house. It is expected that
the bill wiil be sent to that body by the
senate la to tomorrow. Tho house will

ffell is expected to offer a resolution by
which tho house will disagree to the
senate amendments en bloc and agree
to a conference.

ral understanding that the final vote
on tho tariff bill should be taken by 4
o'clock tomorrow afternoon, the senate

The arrangement for a voto tomorrow
was arrived at as an alternative for a
.session tonight. Tho income tax ques
tion, including tho corporation tax
provision and inheritance tax, received
much attention in the senate today
and the Straight income advocates were
afforded the opportunity to cet a vote
in favor of the income tax as opposed
to the corporation tax. Tho income
tax was defeated by 48 to 7 and with
the corporation tax provision securely
established as a part of the bill, there
was considerable effort to amend it.

The French people, as well as tho Ger
mans, but tbe latter to a less obnoxious
extent, fearful of tho progress of tho
American manufacturer, have been
raising item after item, bo it was ex
plained today, until now American
goods are almost prohibited from enter

There remain 17 other administrative
features of the tariff bill to dispose of
before it goes to the house. The report
is tonight that tbe senate will- have
each of them out of the wsy by Thurs

Work Suspended at Messina on Ac
count of Hot Weather.
Rome, July 5. Thousands of bodies
of the victims of the December earth-
auake that devastated Messina are
still in the ruins of that city and will
not be dug out to receive burial until
winter. In an effort to convince King
Victor that it is doing every possible
thing toward the ends desired in Mes
sina, the interior department today
submitted its first comprehensive re
port. It is understood tonight that the
king, though not doubting the honesty
of the officials, was angry that there
had been so much delay, and bad de
manded speedier work.
In reply to tbe accusation that no
excavation bad been made in the ruins,
the Interior department declares it has
been found necessary to suspend all
work of this nature during the warm
weather. Up to that time 30,000 bod
ies had been recovered. An average
of 300 bodies were removed .daily in
April and 900 bodies were awaiting
burial lor lack of grave diggers.

A fact that adds romantic interest
to the gold discovery ia that the region
18 adjacent to tno deserted city, which
is aupnoseti to have been Snanish and
which is known as Rran Ouivnrn.
There are legendary stories of old Span-
isn mines wnicn are supposed to have
been productive hundreds of years ago,
but which were abandoned. Now that
gold has been discovered in the region
tnese stories are being revived and
manv are flookiner into tho mnnntnina
and are.Btaking out claims every where.
ino discovery of gold is Iarcelv due
to one or tne engineers of the com
pany, who ia located at the general
offices in Chicago. Not along ago this
engineer waa walking track between
Belen and Willnrd and while in n deep
cut he nicked un a chunk- of hniinat
which had a chemical Btain upon it.
The stone was brought to Chicago, and
it was found to be highly infused with
gold. Some of the ballast: toTiiVTi nna

Annual Patriotic Carnage is Greatly
Chicago, July 6. With three days'
celebration of the nation's birthday
this year, the remarkable fact Btands
out boldly that the annual carnage baa
been decreased to a great degree. Ad
vices from all points up to midnight
show that in all large cities new rules
and their strict enforcement have
checked the customary slaughter of
In New York there were but four
deaths for the three days. In Chicago,
usually drenched with blood under the
guise of patriotism, there was not &
single death for the three days. In
"Washington there were no deaths and
no injuries, and only the smallest fire
crackers were permitted.
Five deaths are reported from the
state of Massachusetts, one each in
Boston and other large cities. One
death is reported from Philadelphia.
The entire state of Oklahoma reports
but two deaths and nine seriouB injur
ies. Small citiea in New Jersey and
Pennsylvania and Far Western locali
ties Beemed most patriotic in casual
ties this year. In every case this can
be traced to lax police regulations.
