The report of the fires in tho Nixon
warehouses cannot be confirmed. A
telegraph operator said he could not

water, but that the fires wero burning
in the vicinity of the big warehouses.
The floods in the Carolinas and Geor
gia culminated in the breaking of the
big dam six miles from Augusta, which
diverts the water from the Savannah
river into the canal at that point. The
great flood of water let loose soon

Japanese Public Clamoring Against
Toklo, Aug. 27. Tho unpopularity
of President Kaneko, of the Tokio ex
position, has caused difficulties which
may result in the postponement of tho
great exposition, which is now set for
The people are clamoring against the
methods of Kaneko in spending great
sums of government money and tho re
ports of the postponement have been
bo frequent that today the minister of
agriculture and commerce found it ne
cessary to issue a formal denial. Ho
said the exposition would be held at
the time set, but even this assurance
ts not sufficient to quiet tho reports.
The strained industrial and financial
situation in Japan is the matter upper
most in the minds of most of tho peo

that the government chose a poor timo
to go to the enormous expense of hold

Bordeaux, Aug. 28. An extraordi

ambulance corps, Camille Marquet,
who was charged with attempting to
blackmail President Roosevelt. Ac
cording to the evidence before the

on January 9, demanding on behalf of
"my society," without other specifica

rendered during the presidential elec

Receiving no reply to this demand,
Marquct wrote again on March 9,

safe on their shoulders; look at Portu
The president handed the letters to
tho French consul general, who com

CARPET WORTH THOUSANDS
Floor Covering of U. S. Mint Filled
With Gold Dust.
San Francisco, Aug. 28. The car
pet floor of the adjusting room at the
San Francisco mint ia about worn out
and after tho old covering has been
taken up it will be handled with far
more care than the new one. It will
be many times more valuable, because
it is literally lined with gold. The
old carpet will be burned and from tho
ashes the Treasury department officials
expect to realize about $5,000.
In the adjusting room files are used
to trim surplus gold from the coins
ufter being stamped. It frequently
happens that the overweight filings
thus taken ofT fall to tho floor and be
come imbedded In tho carpet. The
very best carpets are purchased for
this room, so that tho closely-woven
material will hold securely tho scat
tered particles of gold.
It is nothing unusual for tho govern
ment to get $5,000 worth of gold dust
out of the ashes resulting from the
burning of one of these carpets.

household goods ami preparing to move
