SWEPT OVER A DAM.
Seven Persons Drowned In
Philadelphia, June 3. A rowboat
containing a party of eight young
peoplo was swept over I ho Flat Rock
dam, in the Schuylkill river, and
seven of them, five girls and two
boys, were drowned. One young man
The party, with a large number of
others, organized a picnic. They em
barked in gaily decorated wagons
early in the morning, and pitched
their camp at Rose Glen, along the
Schuylkill river, on the northern
outskirts of the city. The party split
up after dinner for a row on the river.
Heavy rains during the past week
hail made the muddy stream quite
high, and the current was much
swifter than usual. However, the
unfortunate party immediately struck
out for midstream. All the girls
were huddled in the stern, one of the
Ikivs was rowing and the others were
sitting in the bow of the boat. After
getting in tho middle of the river,
and finding tho current too swift for
comfort, tho boat was rowed in to
ward the shore. During this time it
was being carried slowly down stream.
The boy doing tho rowing decided
to go through the locks, and as he
approached tho dam ho was warned
by tho lockkeeper not to approach
any closer. The warning was not
heeded, and tho young oarsman kept
on rowing until he found that the
lock was closed. Ho attempted to
turn the boat, which was then about
50 feet from the dam and 25 feet
from the shore, but ho turned the
wrong way. A moment later and the
bout was in the swiftly moving cur
rent. Swiftly it was carried toward
the brink of the falling waters, and
just as it reached the breast of the
dam, over which 30 inches of water
was pouring, tho entire eight stood
tip and the boat went over stem first.
The drop to tho rocks below is ap
proximately 12 feet. The boat
struck tho water bottom up, and as
it disappeared the whole party was
under it. Nothing more was seen
by the few persons who saw the acci
dent for almost a minute, when the
boat reappeared with one boy cling
ing to its keel. Then another young
man was seen to come to the sur
face and make a frantic effort to
reach shore by swimimng. The six
girls never rose to the surface.
Investigation of Charges of Bribery In the
Honolulu, May 20, via San Fran,
cisco, Juno 3. The special grand
jury called to investigate the charges
of bribery in the legislature has raised
the biggest sensation Honolulu hae
had since the days of revolution and
agitation for annexation. It has had
as witnesses Gov. Dole, Attorney Gen
eral Dole, Secretary of the Territory
Cooper and other high officials, and
on the refusal of some of them to
answer questions, the grand jury
has had them brought into court to
show cause why they should not
In the absence of S. B. Dole, who
is indisposed, Secretary Cooper is act
ing governor. The jury began its
investigation on a letter from the
governor to the legislature, refusing
to extend the session because he had
information that bribery was taking
place. Governor Dole appeared be
fore tho jury and it is said told all
that ho knew. The other heads of
departments were summoned to
testify, and all refused to tell what
they knew, on the ground that the
information they had received was
in the nature of a "privileged com
munication," having been given to
them as government officials.
Acting Governor Cooper, Attorney
General Dolo and L. A. Thurston,
president of the Gazette publishing
company, were sumomned to appear
liefore Judge Humphreys and show
cause why they should not tell the
grand jury what they had learned re
garding bribery in the legislature.
Judge Humphreys sustained Dole as
it was shown that he had told the
grand jury the names of the men
from bom he bad received evidence.
Thurston had told the jury that tin
had heard that legislators had ap
proached a corporation with solicita
tions of bribes, but ho declines to
give the name of the corporation on
the ground that as attorney he had
a right to withhold it as given in
confidence by a client to an attorney.

HER CASE CRITICAL.
McKinley'i Condition Causes Much
Washington Juno 4. Mrs. M,c
Kinlcy continues very weak. Her
condition is not greatly changed from
that of yesterday, tut each day that
elapses without a gain in strength
lessens her power of recuperation.
The complaint which camo near end
ing her life in San Francisco is still
present. It is in a slightly less
aggravated form, but gives the phy
sicians and president much concern.
Mrs. McKinley hat shown remarkable
vitality, but her illness has so re
duced her strength as to leave her
very feeblo indeed. It is feared that
unless a clmngo for tho lictter soon
manifests itself, her strength may
become so near exhausted as to
leave her without rallying power.
Tho news given out by the physi
cians in attendance today was not
reassuring, though hope of lictter
tilings still continues. After a con
sultation between tho doctors the
following bulletin was issued:
"Mrs. McKinley pussed a comfort
able night, but her condition has not
materially changed since tho report
MOST UNIQUE CLAIMS.
Government Will Be Asked to Restore Value
of Bonds Burned.
Washington, June 4. A most
unique claim will bo presented at the
next congress. It is that of certain
heirs of Joseph L. Lewis, who was a
millionaire of Trenton, N. J. Lewis
was a bachelor crank. His will pro
vided bequests of from $75,000 to
$100,000 to various relatives and
directed that after these bequests
should be paid tho residue of his
estate should be invested in govern
ment bonds, and as he expressed it,
"in ortler to reduce the public debt,"
the bonds should be burned. His
wishes were carried out, $996,000 in
government bonds were purchased
and burned. This occurred 25 years
ago. Now certain distant relatives
who were not beneficiaries of the will
are seeking to have the government
restore to the Lewis estate the value
of the bonds burned, and a bill pro
viding that this shall be done will be
introduced in the next congress.
IN A RUSSIAN JAIL.
Prominent American Confined Arbitrarily in
New York, June 3. Tho Press
this morning publishes a statement
that L. James Gordon, sales and con
trading agent in Russia of the Bald,
win Locomotiv e Works, disappear
ed in St. Petersburg last January
and that his disappearance was caused
by his arrest by the Russian authori
ties on charges unknown to the pub
lie. On the day succeeding the arrest
a St. Petersburg paper contained the
following notice: "Mr. L. J. G. ,
a prominent business man, was ar
rested yesterday. " Those who know
Gordon knew that it referred to him,
hut that ended the matter in St. Pte-
ersburg. It is only within a few
weens that it has become known that
he is confined arbitrarily in the fort
ress of the Neva. The American
ambassador has been asked to inter

Fire Raged Ten Days.
Oaxaca, Mexico, June 4. Details
of the great fire which raged on the
isthmus of Tehauntepec for sevoral
days have been received here. Over
70 people were unable to escape the
rapid progress of the flames and were
burned to death. The fire started
on a coffee plantation, and owing to
the dryness of the vegation it was
soon beyond control and wrought
great destruction to growing crops.
Many thousands of acres of coffc
trees, bananas, orange trees and othe,
tropical prjducts were destroyed.
The fire burned for 10 days and was
finally quenched by a heavy tropical

AN EXTKA SESSION
OFFICIALS FINALLY ADMIT THAT
IT IS QUITE PF.03ADLE.
It All Depends Upon Whether the President
Has Power to Impose Customs Duties on
Trade Between the United States and the
Philippines Members of Congress Have
Scattered for the Summer.
New York, .Tune 5. A sjiecial from
Wasihngton says :
Officials of tho administration for
the first time since the announce
ment of the decisions of the supreme
court in tho insulur cases, admit that
there is a posHibility of an extra ses
sion of congress in July. If Attorney
General Knox, after a careful review
of the decisions, concludes that tho
president w ill not have power under
the Spooner amendment to the army
appropriation bill to impose duties
on goods going into the Philippines
from the United States or coming
into the United States from the Phil
ippines, the president, will seriously
consider tho advisability of issuing
an immediate call for an extra ses
sion of congress. This statement is
made on the authority of a member
of the cabinet.
Attorney General Knox and Secre
tary of War Root have spout consid
erable time discussing the legal
points involved. Mr. Knox is work
mg hard on his opinion in order to
have it for the next cabinet meeting.
This meeting is expected to lie of
very great importance.
A call for an extra session would
play havoc with the summer plans
of senators and representatives,
They have scattered to the four corners
of the earth. Several are about to
start for the Philippines. Quite a
number are either in Europo or in
tending to go shortly. If congress
should be called back immediately,
the house of representatives would
have difficulty in finding a place in
which to meet. The hall is complete
ly torn up and an army of workmen
is engaged in the alterations made
necessary by the increase in the mem
bership of the house provided for .by
the rcapport moment law enacted hist
winter. If the work should lie pushed
night and day it would require several
weeks to get the hall in condition.
BUTTE AGAIN SLIDING.
Strange Phenomenon Causes
Amoung the Citizens.
Butte, Mont., June 5. The strange
sliding movement of the city of
Butte which has been noticeable at
intervals for several years has again
manifested itself by live large cracks
in the earth in different sections of
the city. The largest crevice was 12
inches wide and of considerable
length and depth. Three of theopen
ings occur on the west side of town
and two on the east side. There is no
caving, but a distinct parting of the
earth, and the granite walls can easily
be seen in them. The gas and water
companies have much trouble on ac
count of the strange movement, which
frequently breaks their underground
pipes. The city engineer says the
engineering department of the city
encounters the same trouble, as 'eleva
tions and bench marks in certain
parts of the city are constantly chang
ing. The continuance of the strange
phenomenon is beginning to cause
some alarm among the citizens of
ALLIED TROOPS FOUGHT.
British Police Tried to Prevent French From
Tien Tsin, June 5. There was a
serious affray yesterday between inter
national troops. Some British fusil
eers, who were acting as police here,
