Damage in Gotham Two Cases
Chicago, Jane 29. In spite of occa
sional storms, there was no let-up yes
terday in the killing heat that has held
the whole Eastern section of the Unit
ed States in its grip fur the past week.
Ten deaths were reported in this city,
due solely to the heat; in New York
there were two deaths from heat and
one from a thunder storm that swept
over the city late in the day. Pros
trations were almost without number,
here, in New York, in Philadelphia
Here there was some relief afforded
late last night, when a cooling breeze
swept in from the lake. It was not
regarded as a permanent break in the
hot wave, however, and emergency or
ders were issued by the police throw
ing open the parks and playgrounds to
men and boys. Many took advantage
of this, and crowds from the poorer
sections of the city sought a breathing
space for the night in the open.
During the day a man named Car)
Summers became demented from the
excessive heat, and rushed into the
waters of Lake Michigan for relief.
Though he was rescued the shock prov
ed too great fpr him, and he died later
in the hospital.
The Salvation Army will take 2,500
poor children on a lake trip today.
TWO DEATHS IN NEW YORK.
Thunder Storm Does Great Damage
and Cools Air Somewhat.
New York, June 29. The second of
a series of cooling thunderstorms broke
over the city late yesterday. There
was a sudden drop in temperature.
The storm was responsible for the death
of one man and injury of several. At
the Polo grounds the game between
New York and Brooklyn was about to
begin when lightning struck the flag
pole in center field, smashing the upper
portion of the staff into splinters and
tearing down the pennant flat; which
the New. York team won in J9D5.
liefore relief came two death were
added to the long list of temperature
victims. There were a score of pros
trations. The maximum temperature
was 86, but the humidity was great.

in his weekly mortality report today
noted an increase of nearly 200 deaths
over the corresponding period last year.

Horticultural society, who las bten

the apple situation, both as to produc

day with Secretary Wilson and other
Agricultural department official!1. He

DYNAMITE STOPS PHONES.
Heavy Explosion Jara Butinets Part
Chicago, June 29. An explosion
supposed to have been caused by dyna
mite did great damage in the business
district tonight, injured two or three
persons severely, and wrecked stores
and windows for a block near Clark
and Washington streets.
The exact nature of the explosion is
unknown, because of the great amount
of debris thrown about the alley where
it occurred. The police think it an
other in the series of gamblers' war
bombs that have mystified detectives
for more than two years.
The scene of the explosion was in
an alley in the rear of the central tele
phone exchange. The Chicago Tele
phone company was unable to do any
more business during the night. Two
restaurants facing on Clark street
were blown practically into the streets,
food being scattered over the car
In this alley also was the rear en
trance to Powers Lambert's saloon,
headquarters for Martin B. Madden
and his associates in the building
trades. Madden and bis men are figur
ing largely in labor disputes at pres
ent, and have been the subject of grand
Another place opening into the alley
which was badly damaged, was the
cash register store of Mont Tenness,
who is alleged to conduct several gamb
ling places. Tenness' place has been
raided frequently by the police. An

IMPORTANT RULE MADE.
Canada May Control Roads Starting
in United States.
Ottawa. Oct., June 29. An import
ant judgment has been handed down by
the board of railway commissioners fot
Canada. By this decision Canada may
rule railway systems originating in the
United States. The case decided was
that of the Dawson board of trade,
which complained of excessive rates on
the White Pass & Yukon railroad. The
company replied as only a part of its
system was in Canadian territory the
Canadian board had no jurisdiction.
The chairman of the board, ex-Judge
Mabee, in a carefully drawn judgment,
disposes of thi theory altogether..
The conclusion reached is that the
board has jurisdiction over the tolls
the company or companies .may be en
titled to charge on through traffic re
ceived at Skagwsy or that district to
White Horse or any other intermediate
point between the international bound
ary between Alaska and British Co
lumbia and White Horse upon the rail
way lines, ard upon through traffic re
ceived at any point upon the railway
line between White Horse and the
boundary, destined to Skagway.
ALASK. ROAD OPEN I9IO.
Big Rush to Interior Predicted When
Travel it Easier.
Seattle, Wash., June 29. S. W. Ec
cles, president of the Copper River &
Northwestern railroad, arrived here
last night, and will sail for Cordova,
Alaska, July 1, to look over the rail
roxd construction work and the oth r
property of the Morgan and Guggen
heim interests, especially newly discov
ered copper deposits.
"The Copper River & Northwe-tem
will be opemd in 1910 for traffic,"
said Mr. Kccles "and I predict there
will be a great rush of people to the
int rior of Alaska, as the hardships of
the trail that many have had to face
and that have deterred countless num
bers from going into the interior, will
be removed by the opening of the new
road. The same vegetables and agri
cultural product that can be ra Bed in
Norway and Sweden can be raffed in
Alaska. The country will be fully ex
ploited once the new road is in opera
tion." Mr. Ecclea says that his company
will build a 50-mile railroad to open
gold fields as soon as title to the land
is received from the government.

A BRIEF DAILY REPORT ON
THE WORK OF CONGRESS
Tuesday, June 29.
Washington, June 29. With the
tariff schedules disposed of, the senate
today began consideration of the pro
posed income and corporal ion taxes.
The question of taxing incomes re
ceived attention while the tea provis
ion was under consideration, and it
was 'hen that the most interesting, oc
currences of the day took place. This
was the announcement of the real atti
tude of Chairman Aldrich, of the
finance committee, toward the corpora
tion tax provision, which he had intro
duced at the instance of the president
He said that he ad-oca ted the corpora
tion tax as a means of defeating the
income tax. He also said V.e thought
for the next year or two there would
be a deficit in the treasury receipts,
which he was willing to have made
good by the income from the proposed
corporation tax. He thought that the
tax could be materially modified, if not
repealed, within a year or two.
Monday, dune 28.
Washington, June 28. The end of
the tariff schedules was reached this
afternoon and adjournment was .taken
to tomorrow, when the corporation tax
will be considered.

free lint today by the senate.
Metal strips with which cotton bales
are bound, known as cotton ties, were

ments. The duty on zinc blocks, pigs and
zinc dust was increased to 1 t cents a
Saturday, dune 28.
Washington, June 26. The senate
today failed to conclude it j debate on
the schedules of the tariff bill, though
several provisions were disposed of.
A motion by Bacon to place agricul
tural implements on the free list was
rejected by a decisive vote of 26 to 45.
Davis offered an amendment placing
lumber on the free list and in the face
of a protest from Aldrich, a vote was
taken. The amendment was lost, 18
A duty of 5 cents a square yard was
placed on tracing cloth. The duty on
borate material was increased from

of ammonia was placed on the free list.'
The wood pulp provision also re
Today's amendments were in lieu of
sll previous senate changes in the
schedule. They provide for the free
importation of meel aiically ground
wood pulp except from countries which
place obstacles in the way of the ex
portation of wood or pulp to the United
States. In such caes, upon proclama
tion of the president, a duty of one
twelfth of a cent a pound may be im
posed. Friday, June 26.
Washington, June 25. This was an
other of the senate's active working
days and by the time the session closed
at 7 o'clock tonight so many schedules
had been considered . and disponed of
that Aldrich freely predicted that by
tomorrow night all would be out of the
way, leaving the senate free to begin
consideration of the corporation tax
and inconie tax amendment. Begin
ning the session with an increase of 5
per cent over the houne rate of 35 per
cent ad valorem on harness, the senate
marched steadily along throughout the
nine hours of its sitting, indulging in
little rpeechmaking and acting upon
many important provisions. Among
the changes made were :
An increase of duty on scrap iron
from 50 cents to $2.50 per ton, thus
placing it on the same level as p;g
iron; an increase of one-fourth of a
cent per ound over the house rates on
wire nails; an increase of from 4 to 6
cents pr pound on monazite sand and
other articles used in making gas mun-
Una; and the substitution of specilic
for ad valorem sates on files, ranps, etc.
Thursday June 24.
Wthin:ton, June 24. A short time
before ad jiiurnment at 7 o'clock to
night the cerate returned to the con
sideration of the tariff rcheduies after
devoting tie greater part of the day to
lintening to pri pared speeches.
Amendments were adopted "increas
ing the duty on shoes from 15 to 20
per cent ad valorem and iricrvaa'ng the
duty on sole leather from 5 to 10 per

Defers Visit to Malheur.
Washington, June 30. Secretary
Ballinger, on his way to Seattle, will
not stop in Ma'heur county to look

Wednesday, June 23.
Washington, June 23. In unexpect
edly short order the senate today dis
posed of the lumber schedule and then
agreed upon the rates of duty on pine
apples. Aldrich asked that the lumber sched
ule receive first attention. He had no
sooner taken his seat than McCumber,
who has been a persistent advocaUi of
free lumber, presented an amendment
reducing the finance committee's rate
of $1.50 per thousand on sawed lumber
to the house rate of $1 per thousand.
This was recognized generally as a test
proposition, as saweJ lumber has been
the bone of contention from the begin
ning. The North Dakota senator did
not find it worth while to enter into
i he result was another triumph for
the Aldrich rates, the vote standing 24
for and 44 against the reduced rates.
It hsd been expected that the coal
schedule would be debated at great
length, but it was passed after little
more than an hour's discussion. A
new schedule was presented by Aldrich
as chairman of the finance commitee,
reducing the house rate on bituminous
coal from 67 cents per ton to 60 cents
and eliminating the house reciprocity

retary Ballinger that settlers on the
Klamath irrigation project, whose
lands are crossed by public roads, must
pay for water for the roadways includ
ed in their farms, though exception is
made in the case of lands crossed by
railroads or big irrigation ditches. The
secretary also advises Representative
Hawley that no serious difficulty can
arise from the fact that the govern
ment surveys and plats of the uniu on
the Klamath project fail to coincide
with actual charts of the farms.

Washingtin, June 26 Representa

Navy department that the figurehead

Governor Benson to ascertain whether
the state is in a position to pay the
cost of transporting the figurehead to
the capitol at Salem. He expects re

$8,700 is to be erected by the United
