Physicians say the mortaltiy rate among infants will mount higher every day now until the heat wave is broken, as the little ones are breaking down under the strain.

San Francisco A t least six |iersons were killed and 42 or more Injured by the exploeiun here Saturday of a timed bomb in the midet o f a throng viewing a preparedness parade. The police ar rested Frank Josephs, a lodger In a sailors' boarding-house, but said he had not been charged with the crime. Chalrvs M.

The parade waa not Interrupted. Lists of dead compiled by the police are: Mrs. Howard E. Knapp, Alameda, Cal. Dr. George Painter, Berkeley, Cal. O. H. Lamborn, printer, Alameda. George I.awler, Mill Valley, Cal. The «•»plosion took place at Steuart and Market streets, two blocks from the Ferry building, on San Francisco's main thoroughfare. The bomb, c«m- rcaled in a suitcase (tacked with cart ridges, bullets, marbles, bits o f glass, iron pipe and scrap iron, blew a gap through tEie crowd, hurling men, wom en and children to the ground. The holiday throng, cheering a con tingent o f veterans o f the First Cali fornia Infantry o f the Spaniah-Ameri- can war, and memEters o f the Grand Arm y o f the Republic who were form ing in Steuart street, stood in a path which became a shambles.

C.— Contributions to the treasury's “ conscience fund, ” for the fiscal year ending June 80 amount ed to $4,923.15, making a total of $498,763.64 returned by persons whose consciences were uneasy over frauds against the government. Returns were much larger during the past year than ever before, chiefly because o f two unusual contributions, one for $30,000 and one for $10,000. It was in 1811 when the first $6 was sent in. It is an unwritten law of the department that no effort shall be made to learn the identity o f the con tributors, and even in cases where the writer has confessed to theft no effort is made to prosecute. 8 6 0 0 0 Reward O ffered. San Francisco— Mayor Rolph offered a reward o f $6000 Sunday for the ar rest o f the person who placed a Eiomb Saturday among the crowds watching the preparedness parade, the explosion o f which killed six and wounded 40, and the police department established a separate bureau for the single pur pose o f running down the culprit. As the result o f police investigation, several possible clews to the perpetrator of the outrage were obtained. W illiam Taylor, an aged cripple, who frequents the waterfront, told the police that he saw a man leave a suitcase on the spot where the explosion occurred a few minutes later. L o st in O fficsrs Huge. London— Casualty lists issued by the war office show that during June the British army lost 423 officers killed, 1032 woundedvand 46 missing— a total o f 1619. These figures bring the ag gregate losses to date to 29,424, of which number 8997 have been killed or died, 18,456 wounded and 1971 miss ing. Heavy fighting around Ypres caused losses among officers in the Canadian contingent o f 109 killed, 304 wounded and 51 misaing. Of the Australians 14 were killed and 32 wounded. Shakespeare Wins Suit. Chicago— The closing chapter o f the Bacon-Shakospeare controversy in the rourts here was entered Saturday when Judge Smith dismissed tho suit o f Col onel George Fabyan and disa«>lved the injunction granted him by Judge Tut- hill, who decided that the works cred ited to Shake*|>eare were in reality written by Bacon. To prevent Fabyan from publishing a code which he con tended would show Bacon waa the au thor o f the Shakespearean plays, Selig brought injunction proceedings and Colonel Fabyan filed a cross-bill. Boni Has New Evidence. Rome— On behalf o f Count Boni de Caatellane his attorney In the suit be fore the H oly See fo r the annulment of his marriage with Anna Gould has presented to the Pope new evidence which, according to the attorney, will prove that Miss Gould married Count de Castellane with the intention o f di vorcing him if later she became dis satisfied with the marriage bond. This is sufficient to annul a Catholic mar riage, the attorney says. Millions to Be Burned. Mexico C ity— F ifty million dollars in Mexican paper money w ill be burned within the next few days in the court yard o f the National Palace, according to an announcement by the government Saturday. This money is o f the old Vera Cruz issue and has been supplant ed by a new issue made in the United States. It is said that $225,000,000 In paper money w ill be disposed o f In this way during the next few weeks. Prudential Insurance Company Agents Called Out on Strike New York — Agent* *nd collectors employed by the Prudential lnaurance company were railed out on strike Monday by a union recently organised among them and known as the Inter national Insurance Agenta’ Protective association, with a membership of 6000. Although assertions of the com pany and the union were conflicting, it appeared Monday night that at leant 600 men in the district have rea|x>nded to the strike call thus far. The men demanded more pay, recog nition o f the union and “ more reason a b le " working hours. Telegrams from branches o f the union in different states in the territory east of Chicago, leaders here declared, indicate that un less the demands of the men are met *11 the 6000 w ill follow the lead of those already out. About 13,000 agenta and collectors are employed by the company. Lack of sufficient collectors to see that premiums arc turned in at the proper time, the strikers assert, will result in the cancellation of thousands o f policies. The company announced that none o f the men who walked out would be reinstated. Sixteen in Tube Thought Dead. Cleveland— Imprisoned in a new wa ter works tunnel under Lake Erie aa a result of a terrific explosion o f gas in the tube, 16 men are believed to be dead. The blast occurrred shortly before midnight Monday and lifesavers and the crews of the flreboats rushed to the outer crib five miles from shore with lung motors, prepared to enter the tunnel and rescue the victims alive. That any survived the gas explosion is considered hopeless. A t 2:30 a. m., G. O. Van Duzen, with eight members of a rescue party, were overcome by gas in the tunnel trying to rescue the 14 men trapped in the water works tunnel. Tw o others in the party were saved. It is report ed that the rescuers were near death from the gaa.
