The above ticket was nominated to
day by the prohibitionists national
convention, both men being chosen
unanimously. The full endorsement
of the convention was hot however
given to Chafin until after three bal
lots had been taken.
On the first two ballots Chafin did
not show much strength, receiving but
I'.ir, out of 1UK7, and 379 on the second
ballot. His nomination was practically
assured however when the roll call be
gan for the third ballot. His own
Mate, which voted largely for Daniel
R. Sheen, of Peoria. Ill . and the New
York delegation, followed by those of
Indiana ami Wisconsin came over to
Chafin on the third ballot and he re
ceived a total of fiSfi votes. The strong
est competitor of Chafin was Rev.
YVni. 1!. Pal inure of St. Louis, who re
ceived 274 votes on the first ballot. 41
on the second ballot, and a compara
tively small vote after it was evident
that the nomination of Chafin could
not be prevented.
The convention up to this time had
run smoothly, without the slightest
friction. It was decided to make Pal

and pi rsisted in that attitude despite

. ON RAISING RA1ES
Some Officials Believe Whatever the
Necessities the Time Is Not Now.
New Tork, July 1C. The conference
of the railroad presidents extended
through the long morning and af
ternoon sessions today in the offices
of the trunk line association here on
the subject of the proposed raising
of freight rates. (
Considerable divergence of opinion
appeared in the discussion as to the
policy of raising the schedule of rates
at the present time, owing to the
dullness of trade and the opposition
already displayed on the part of
shippers to the proosed Increase.
On the one hand it was argued that
the necessities of the railroads were
urgent. On the other hand the effect
of raising the rates before any mark
ed Improvement of general freight
traffic set in may be to retard the
flow of rising business expected with
the fall. It is reported that the -officers
of the Pennsylvania who had
hitherto advocated an early raising
of the scheduled rates had now
changed their opinion in tNe matter
together with the Iickawanna, Read
ing and Lehigh Valley and were op
posed to an immediate advance. This
attitude was decidedly at variance
with the policy advocated by llarri
man and the lines allied with him.
The matter of a reduction of wages
was not discussed by the conference.
At the close of the conference the
statement was given out that no
definite conclusion had been reached.

A Powder Magazine Explosion by
Which Nine Were Killed.
Tacoma, Wash., JuV 16. A special
to the Ledger from Cleelum. Wash
ington, says: . The explosion of a pow
der magazine of the Northwestern
Improvement company near here at
5 o'clock this afternoon killed at least
nine persons and seriously Injured a
number of others. The dead are:
tleorge Mead, manager of the Improve
ment company store; Cilford McDon
ald, a clerk in the store; Andy Gnu,
a clerk in the store; Mrs. Peter ilof-
fatt, -wife of a brickmaker; the Infant
child of Moffatt; Joe Rossi, a miner;
Joe Pogriappi. a miner, and two min
ers, names unknown.
Shortly before 5 o'clock Manager
Mend and the clerks of the store went
to the powder house to assist, in un
loading a carload of powder. How
the accident happened is not known.
The magazine w as three-tpiai ters of
a mile from the center of the town
and the explosion shook the town like
an earthquake. The windows for a
mile around were shattered anil rocks
and brick from the powder house were
thrown hundreds of feet.
Mrs. Peter Moffatt, the wife of a
brickmaker, was living in a tent near
the magazine with her two children.
The tent was blown to pieces and Mrs.
Moffntt's body was not yet been found.
Muffled cries were heard soon, after
the explosion but they died down.
Fragments of bodies were scattered
for half a mile from the magazine.

to bring forth a piece of flesh or
bone to fill anything larger than a
shoe box. Three Italians, not far
from the powder house, were killed
instantly. Rossis' she was blown off

A BETTER DAY
of the Miserable
-Two Systems of Counting
to Determine the Olyin
London, July 10. This was Amer
ica's day in the Olympic sports at the
stadium, both big events which reach
ed their finals, throwing the discus,
free style, and putting the shot, being
carried off by Martin J. Sheridan, of
the Irish American A. C. and Ralph
Rose of the Olympic A. C. of San
Francisco, respectively. The United
Kingdom captured the third final, the
400 meters swimming event, in which
II. Taylor added a score to his country
by beating Kenurepaire, the Australian
crack, and Schcff of Austria.
The final was also reached in the
1000 meter cycle race, but this proved
such a fiasco through the attempts of
tlie four participants, Schilles of
France; Jones, Kingsburg and Johnson
of England to force each other to
make the pace that the judges declar
ed the event off, it not being finished
within the time limit. Italy got her
first gold medal today in the team
gymnastic competition, receiving the
greatest number of points against a
great array of competitors.
This system awards one point to
each winner, ignoring seconds and
thirds and Includes all sports carried
out under the auspices of the associa
tion whether within the stadium or
outside of it. Following th.s method
of counting points, the countries will
bi placed in this order: The United
Kingdom 21, the United States S.
Sweden 3. Norway 2. Canada. France,
Ee'gium and Italy, one each.
The United Kingdom's poinfr, ae
rerdins; to th:. computation is mado
up as follows: Men's doubles and !n
g'e, aud ladies' singles in both the
lawn tenn:3 and covered court tennis
competitions: pole competition: sin
gles and doubles racquets; individual
rifle competition: individual miniature
rifle competition at disappearing tar
gets; tain and individual competi
tions: miniature rifles at ordinary
targets; t-am competition at clay
birds, and the following wins in the
Kt.nlium: the 300 meter walk; the L'tl
kilometer cycle race: the three mile
team race; the inm yards cycle race,
and the 400 meter swim. The l'nited
States score is made up of the fol
lowing wins: rifle team compe tition;
revolver competition; individual dou
ble shoot at running deer; J. OoiiM's
victory in the court tenuis competi
tion; throwing the hummer: the 1"00
meters flat race; throwing the discu.
and putting the weight. The Swedish
points are scored by wins at team
and individual competitions at running
deer and throwing the javelin. Nor
way won the team and individual
rifle shooting at 300 meters. Canada
won the individual competition ;lt
flay birds; France the 200 kilometers
tandem race; Belgium ttte individual
revolver competition and Italy the
team gymnastic competition.

before the trophy for the champion
ship in all sports can be awarded. If
this method of counting points is ad
mitted by the British Olympic associa
tion, England will win the trophy, for
there are few countries taking part
in these sports outside the stadium.
The American athletic team, which is
devoting Its attention to events with
in the stadium however, is not accept
ing this interpretation. James E. Sul
livan, president of the A. A. U., and
United States commissioner to the
Ohmpie games, said to the Associated
Press tonight: "We came here as we
went to Paris and Athens, with a field
team, making a fight for field events,
and caring nothing for the other sports.
We asked that the championship tro
phy be put up for field sports separ
ately, but our request was not acted
on. So we simply take the score in
field events, counting first, five points;
second, three points, and third, one
point, and figure out the American
score on this basis."
Under the American system, the
score as it stands tonight is:
American, throwing the lxynmer 8,
team race 3, discus 9, putting the
shot C, the 1500 meter race 5; total
The United Kingdom, team race 5,
putting the shot 3, the 1500 meter
race 4, the 300 meter walk 8; to

Commissioner Sullivan received a
reply to a letter which he sent to
IJord Iiesborough, chairman of the
British Olympic Association, protest
ing against certain rules governing
the contests, anil referring to other
matters in connection with the games.
In reply Lord Desborough opens with
an apology to the Americans for the
failure te use a single American flag
in the decoration of the stadium on
the opening day. The omission to
do so, he says, has since been reme
died. He then takes up the com
plaint of Americans regarding the
conduct of the sport?. The question
of the pole vault is referred to tha
A. A. A., which" decided not to allow
the Americans to dig a hole for the!
p ile, but acctded to their request to
have the pits fiLcd with sand 'or

ui.vings. Lord Desborough pointed
out in his letter that the drawing

various heats could not be altered,

The Athletic Association, he said,
had Invited the . American committee
to have a man in the arena during
the progress of the cents in which
America was interested, and llelpin,
the American manager, had been p
pointed to that position.
After reading Lord Desborough's
letter, Sullivan replied that if the
drawings were already made the
Americans would like to see them

In addition to the discus throwing,

1W0 LIVES SACRIFICED
TO MISTAKEN IDENTITY
A Statement by the Murderer Alia
Regarding His Motive.
Canon City. July 16. A signed
statement given last Sunday by
Ouise-ppe Alia,, who was hangeel last
night, to Antone Sassoe, an Italian
guard at the prison, makes it appear
that Father Leo was the victim of
mistaken identity. In the statement
Alia declared that the priest whom
he killed was an Italian priest for
whom he worked five years in Por
tugal and who. he declared, had dis
hohorecl his wife. He said he recog
nised Father Jeo ! as the priest when
he first saw him in St. Elizabeth's
church. He visited the church sev-
eral times before shooting him, to
assure himself that he had made no
mistake. As Father Leo had never
lieen in either Portugal or Italy, there
is believed to be nej doubt that Alia's
identification of him was a delusion.
