Premature Explosion of Dynamite
Causes Death In New York.
CITY OF ALBANY FEELS SHOCK
Preparations to Fire 8,000 Pound of
Exploslvo Had Been Made When
Albany. N. Y May 13. At least
20 men were killed today by a prcma-
ture blast of dynamite In a stone quar
ry operated by the Callanan Road Im
provement company near South Bethle
hem, 11 miles southwest of Albany.
One thousand pounds of dynamite
exploded and the bodies were hurled
hundreds of feet. As darkness was
falling a wagon drew up to the engine
house loaded with bodies that had been
picked up back on the quarry hll.
Tho preparations for today's blast
had been going on for six weeks.
Thirteen holes, 75 feet deep, had
been drilled at points about 25 feet
back of the big quarry and the explo
sion of tho dynamite, with which they
were to be loaded, was expected to dis
place 40,000 tons of rock.
More than 8,000 pounds of dynamite
wero to have been used. The workmen
had placed 600 pounds in six of the
holes and wero working on tho seventh,
when a percussion cap was discharged
A terrific explosion followed, throw
ing tons of rock into the air and scat

The explosion was distinctly felt in
this city, and many people thought the
shock was one of earthquake. As no
second shock followed, the alarm soon

Omaha, Neb., May 13. Lighting by
electricity without tho use of wires
was successfully accomplished by Dr.
Frdcrick H. Milliner at tho Electrical
exposition now in progress at the Oma
ha auditorium. Tho doctor is with the
Union Pacific as experimental electric
fan, and is working on n cab wireless
signal for the control of trains. This
is to be worked in connection with the
block signal system.
One year ago, in tho Union Pacific
shops in Omaba, Dr. Milliner construct
ed an electric truck to travel about the
yards by wireless. This truck is start
ed by wireless and goes four speeds
ahead and four speeds back without
any power other than the wireless. By
an apparatus similar to that used with
the truck, the switch at the Omaha au
ditorium is opened and closed.
The lighting of the auditorium is
something that is beyond the power of
any person to explain. Through the
a courtesy of Colonel Glassford at Fort
I Omaha, the wireless annaratus there is
put in operation, then at the auditor
ium, six miles away, by an instrument
constructed by Dr. Milliner, the elec
tric waves are gathered, brought into
the auditorium, where, after the elec
tric power from the lighting plant has
been cut, they pass to the switchboard
and out over tho wires and through the
hundreds of lamps. This wireless
power can be thrown off or on by
simply pushing a button in the little
machine constructed by the doctor.

Baltimore, May 13. Tho Consoli
dated Coal company today announced
that negotiations had keen completed
or merging the Piedmont Coal com
pany, tho Somerset Coal company, the
Clarksburg Fuel company, the Pitts
burg & Fairmont Fuel company and

Grand Junction, Colo., May 13.
Tho weather observation tonight pre

Interstate Commerce Commission Al
lows Protest to Stand.
Washington, May 14. Because It is
2,300 miles from St. Paul to Spokane
over tho Hnrrimnn railway system and
only 1,900 miles over tho Great North.
cm ami Northern ractiic. tno Inter
state Commerce commission today
modified its recent decision in tho Spo-
kano rata case, exempting the Hnrri
mnn ronds from adoption of tho rates
fixed by that decision ns to St. Paul
truffle. This decision was made possi
ble only by the fact that no direct line
from St. Paul to Omaha was n party to
the Spokane case.
Tho commission, however, is unwil
ling at this time to grant similar ex
emption to tho Hnrrlman system on
freight from Chicago to Spokane, be
cause the Northwestern and Burling
ton roads, which connect with tho
Union Pacific system at Omaha, wero
parties to that case. However, tho
commission temporarily postpones its
order ns to Chicago-Spokano rates over
tho Union Pacific, giving thojlarriman
roads opportunity to establish new
rates from Chicago to nil territory be
tween Pendleton and Spokane.
California Enters Protest.
San Francisco, May 14. Believing
that tho reduction of freight rntcs to
inland distributing points ordered re
cently by tho Hill and Hnrrimnn lines,
in accordance with tho decision of tho
Interstate Commerce commission in
the so-called Spokane case, will seri
ously injuro Pacific coast cities to
which no corresponding reduction has
been made, William R. Wheeler, traffic
manager of tho Merchants' exchange,
wired to tho commissioners today ask
ing for a stay in their approval of tho
proposed rates until tho coast cities
havo had . an opportunity to show tho
injustice of tho new tariff.

OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
French Deputies Show Confidence
Paris, May 14. A turbulent session
of the chamber of deputes today result
ed in a victory for Premier Clemen
ceau, when the government's policy
with regard to the postal strike was
emphatically indorsed by a vote of 454
to 59, including also tho government a
insistence that the postal employes and
other functionaries havo no right to
Immediately afterward tho chamber
passed a vote of general confidence in
tho government by 365 to 75.
The strikers received tho chamber's
rebuke with a shrug of tho shoulders,
declaring it only served to bind closer
their forces, which would soon startle
the country by a big increase and a
rapid extension of the general move
ment. On the other hand, it is inti
mated that the government has other
plans in view.
Up to midnight there was no change
in the situation. If anything it was
in the direction of a weakening of the
strike sentiment. Tho general con
viction is that if the movement does
not make vast strides tomorrow it is
almost certain of complete failure.
FEWER RAILROAD ACCIDENTS
HAS RECORD CLIP. "
Over 3,000,000 Pounds of Wool Ex
pected In Malheur County.
Ontario Tho wool clip in Malheur
county this year will be much larger
than it wns a year ngo, or for several
years, as the tleeco Is in much better
condition, and thero nru also more
sheep in tho county than for several
years. Tho clip last year totaled about
2,750,000 pounds and was considered
very large, but this year it will bo
moro than 3,000,000 pounds and it will
bo cleaner and much thicker per sheep
than it wns last year.
One and one half million pounds hnvo
already been sold here, for May and
June do! Ivory, and buying continues nt
a rapid rate, so rapid in fact that there
will be very little public selling this
year, as tho sales days for Ontario I nve
been set so late. They are Juno 7 and
21. There has been very llttlo bad
weather this year, which is the partic
ular reason for tho fine condition of tho
fleeces. Tho sheep have como through
tho winter with lss loss than for sev
eral years previous.
Prices this spring range from 20 to
21 cents. Last year they wero about
12 to 1CH cents. Very llttlo of the
wool in this vicinity Is going to tho
Chicago warehouse. Most t it will bo
sent to Boston, ns in former years. A
number of wool growers throughout tho
vicinity joined the warehouse plan, but
the majority continued in tho old way,
as tho prices in this part of the coun
try havo always been good.
Much of tho shearing this year will
bo done by machine. Some complaint
of tho machines havo been heard, tho
complaint being that they shear too
close for the bost health of tho sheep,
but this does not seem to bo credited
by many of the growers.
Tho annual meeting of tho Malheur
and Homey Wool Growers association
will meet in Ontario on June 22. At
that timo all the wool grow or of the
two counties will bo here.
Hawallans Refute Japs.
Honolulu, May 3. All the planta

Year I0O8 Was 40 Per Cent Safer
Than Was I0O7.
Chicago, May 14. Not sinco the
business prostration of 1895 and 189G
has travel on American railroads been
so safe as it was during 1908. In a
pamphlet issued by the bureau of rail
way news and statistics, it is stated
that there were 1,932 fewer fatalities
to passengers and employes in railway
accidents during 1908 than there wero
during 1907, which is a decrease of ap
proximately 40 per cent. The greatest
decrease was in fatalities resulting
from train accidents, and the following
conclusion is drawn:
"All things considered, tho conclu
sion Is unavoidable that tho diminution
in fatalities was due almost entirely to
the recession in freight traffic, which
took the strain off every department of
service and substituted an orderly ob
servance of rules by passengers and em
ployes, Instead of their violation in tho
feverish rush of prosperity."
Few Japs Are Coming Now.
Victoria, B. C, May 14. T. Naka-
mura, the new consul general to Cana
da, who arrived today, in an Interview
said Japan will strictly adhere to tho
immigration arrangements made with
Canada and tho United States, the re
strictions being now strictly enforced.
Thero are few applications for pass
ports and few Japanese aro going to
South America, Emigration from Ja
pan now is mostly to Corea and Man
churia. Mr. Nakamurn was formerly
secretary at the Washington legation.
