Power House Is Wrecked.
New York. Twelve persons were
killed, two of them women, and 30
were injured In a double explosion of
gas and dynamite in the new electric
power-house of the New York Central
Railroad Monday morning.
The power house, which Is built of
stone and brick and Is six stories
high, took fire after the explosion and
the interior was practically burned
out. Fortunately for the thousands
of commuters on the New York Cen

Ottawa, Ont. The delegation of
9,000 Canadian farmers presented
their demands to the Canadian gov
ernment and received their answer.
The reply made by Premier Sir Wil
frid Laurler did not come up to the
expectation of the delegation.
The farmers asked for the immedi
ate revision of the tariff downward;
for free, trade on agricultural imple
ments, cement, lumber and natural
produots of Canada and the United
States; for a larger measure of pref
erence to Great Britain and a pro
gram that would lead to free trade
with England in ten yean, and finally
to direct taxation.
They asked for government owner
ship and control of terminal eleva

the establishment by the government
of a oullled meat industry in western
Canada; for amendments to the rail
way law which would tend to lower
rates and compel companies to pay

Lockjaw Case Puzzles.
Salem. After baffling physicians
for three days with an aggravated
case of lockjaw, Ray Brondell, 13-year-old
boy, died. Mystery as to
where he contracted the disease and
how be contracted it has made it dif
vcult for those In attendance to fight
agalnBt its ravages.
There was not a scratch on the
I boy's body, and his parents have no
: satisfactory explanation to give. One
of the attending physicians believes
that the disease may have entered
the boy's system through a decayed
