MITCHELL FOR SECOND PLACE
Indiana Delegate Favors Nomination
of Labor Leader.
Lincoln, Neb., June 30.—W. H.
Bveroad of Columbus, Ind., who was a
Caller at the Fairview residence of
William J. Bryan, declared that he is
fibt for John W. Kern of his state for
Srice president. John Mitchell should
be named, he thought, to prove to the
lafcor unions that the Democratic party
the true friend of labor.
"The Democratic party has always
been the friend of labor and with a
bttong anti-injunction plank in the
Jplfiftform and John Mitchell for vice
president there could be no doubt
about this in the mind of any man,"
Baid he. "1 love Mr. Kern, as do all
the delegates from my state, but we
Relieve that Mr. Bryan would have as
many votes from Indiana without him
BS with him on the ticket."
Booming Woodson for Chairman.
Denver, June 30.—The friends of
Urey Woodson, secretary of the Dem

as a member and as an official of the
committee well qualifies him to act as
Its head during the coming campaign.
POISONED ALE BY EXPRESS
Unknown Parties Cause Death of
.Philadelphia, June 30.—The police
this city hope to be able to make
an important move shortly in the case
Dr. William H. Wilson, who died
suddenly after drinking a bottle of ale
and who is believed to have been poi
Boned. It was at first thought that
the doctor had died from natural
fcauses, but there were so many sus
picious circumstances surrounding his
death that the coroner investigated.
This resulted in an expressed opinion
that Dr. Wilson was poisoned and
that he did not administer the poison
Anticipating a murder verdict by
the coroner the police soon after the
of Dr. Wilson began an investi
gation into his life and habits. At the
North Seventh street house where Dr.
Wilson had lived for about ten years
jthere was no sign indicating that a
physician lived there. He did not do
a general practice in the neighbor
hood. He had patients, however, and
they are said to have been principally
women who were able to pay well for
his services. The line of practice the
doctor had was highly remunerative,
for he was noted as a "good spender"
and he had a summer home at Corn
wells, near Philadelphia, a steam
launch and an automobile.
New Head of Women's Clubs.
Boston, June 30.—Mrs. Philip N.

Of the 906 votes cast Mrs. Moore re

MAY GET A JURY TRIAL
Court Seems Favorabl0 to Granting
New York, June 30.—Justice Dow
Hng of the supreme court, who pre
sided at the second trial of Harry K.
Thaw, denied Thaw's application to
be removed from the asylum for the
criminal insane at Matteawan to some
other institution on the ground that
thaw is a dangerously insane person,
hot to be punished, but to be kept un
der restraint so that he may not in

In another phase of Thaw's effort
for freedom Justice Mills heard argu
ment at White Plains after issuing a
writ of habeas corpus on Saturday on
Thaw'B application for a jury trial to
determine his sanity at the present
The justice adjourned the case until
July 13, when further argument will
be heard, ordering Thaw returned to

Unlike Justice Dowling, Justice
Mills seemed distinctly to favor a
trial by jury to determine Thaw's
sanity. Justice Mills said after the

FAVORS PROHIBITION PLANK
General Weaver to Lead Fight
for It at Denver.
Denver, June 30.—The fight over
the anti-injunction plank in the Demo
cratic platform is not the only strug
gle in which the committee on reso
lutions and possibly the convention
Itself may be involved.
It has developed that the prohibition
question is to be brought to the front
and that a desperate effort will be
made to have a plank declaring in its
favor placed in the platform. The
prohibition movement will be headed
by General James B. Weaver of Iowa,
who demanded of the recent Demo
cratic convention in that state that
It declare in favor of prohibition. Gen
eral Weaver and his followers were
not successful in their efforts in their
own state, but nothing daunted by
their failure, have made arrangements
to bring th$ matter up before the na
tional Democratic convention. They
claim, moreover, to have strong back
ing from a number of the Southern
states, which have recently passed
prohibition laws, and it is declared
confidently by General Weaver's ad
herents that if the Democratic nation
al platform does not contain a prohi
bition plank it will only be for the
reason that the hardest kind of fight

United States Soldiers Will Endeavor
to Prevent Any Violation of
the Neutrality Laws.
Washington, June 30.—By direction
of President Roosevelt, Secretary of
War Taft has issued orders to the
commanding general of the depart
ment of Texas at San Antonio, to send
a sufficient number of troops to Del
Rio, El Paso and other points in
Texas to aid the civil authorities in
preserving order. This action was de
cided upon as a result of the request
from the Mexican government that
the United States do its utmost to
prevent any violation of the neutrality
The request of the Mexican govern
ment was referred to the attorney gen
eral by the department of state, and
the governor of Texas in the mean
time has been asked to aid in com
pelling obedience to the law. The or
der of the president sending troops to
the border is understood to have been
made upon the recommendation of the
TROOPS HURRIED TO SCENE
Mexican Government Fighting Insur
City of Mexico, June 29.—The inter
nal troubles in Mexico, which devel
oped several days ago along the north
ern border of the republic, have de
veloped serious features. The storm
now centers around the city of Tor
reon and in the country between that
place and Jaral, where bandit bands
are operating in conjunction with the
insurrectionists. Government troops
are rushing to the scene. Already
1,500 federal soldiers have reached
Torreon to reinforce the garrison
there, 200 more have reached Juarez
and in Chihuahua soldiers are patrol
ling the streets and the public houses
and jails are heavily guarded. In view
of the latest developments Ambassa
dor Creel, who has been here on what
promised to be a long leave of ab
sence, has been instructed to return
to Washington without delay.
It is the belief of the Mexican gov
ernment that the revolutionary move
ment now in progress was fomented
by a band of agitators who long have
made their headquarters in the United
States. On this ground, it is believed,
Ambassador Creel will appeal to the
United States authorities to assist in
apprehending some of the revolution
ists, particularly those who were con
cerned in the attack on Las Vacos.
The request will be made also that if
any of the ringleaders in the move
ment are captured in the United
States they are to be tried in the
courts of that country on charges of
violating the neutrality laws.
At Las Vacos, where the first seri
ous attack was made, the government
has gained the upper hand. Troops
are now in complete control of the
situation in that city, the rebels and
bandits who composed the attacking
force having been driven back to the
mountains. They will not be permit
ted to rest there undisturbed, how
ever, as the government purposes to
make an example of its foes as an ob
ject lesson to others who might join
the movement in other sections. To
this end a large force of cavalry has
been sent into the hills on the heels
of the fugitives and the chase is now
It is the view of the Mexican gov
ernment that Mexican citizens who
were concerned in the recent raids
are common criminals and that the
contention to the contrary on the
ground that their acts were committed
in furtherance of a revolutionary
movement will not hold.
M'CLELLAN'S TITLE CLEAR
W. R. Hearst Loses Contest in New
New York, June 30.—Justice Lam
bert has directed the jury to find a
verdict for Mayor McClellan in the
election recount suit, upholding Mr.
McClellan's election. The court's ac
tion followed the completion of the
taking of evidence. After a recount
of the ballots cast in the mayoralty
election of 1905 had shown a legal plu
rality of nearly 3,000 for McClellan
Clarence J. Shearn, counsel for the
contestant, asserted that the ballot
boxes were stuffed. Mr. Shearn of
fered evidence in an effort to show
that Mr. Hearst was defrauded of
6,053 votes. Mr. Shearn then rested
Counsel for Mayor McClellan then
offered in evidence the official returns
of the election inspectors and the
poll books and tally sheets from the
county clerk's office.
Bishop Potter Very III.
Cooperstown, N. Y., July 1.—Reports
from the bedside of Bishop Henry
Codman Potter of the Protestant
Episcopal diocese of New York, who
is critically ill here, are somewhat

apparent both from the statements of
the physicians and the other hews
from the sick room that the bishop's

Fire at Duluth Destroys Immense Ele
vator and Dock.
Over $1,000,000 in property was
consumed within a couple of hours
on Rice's point at Duluth by a fire
which razed ^levator D. of the Con
solidated Elevator company to the wa
ter's edge, destroyed No. 1 dock and
sheds of the Northern Pacific and im
perilled surrounding property valued
at another million dollars.
Valiant work by a dozen tug boats,
which aided the fire department, is
probably all that saved the bay front
at that point from being entirely
swept away. While the firemen com
batted the flames on elevator the
tugs kept steady streams on all sur
rounding buildings from the slips
within a radius of two blocks. The
beat from the flames shot in the air
high above the structure and, fanned
by 3. brisk breeze, broke across the
water and kept the docks and eleva
tors almost at the point of ignition.
The automatic pumping station be
tween the wrecked elevator and that
of and C, which is situated back of
D, worked continually and with the
aid of the tugs America and St. Clair
the elevator was kept cool enough so
that the structure did not catch fire.
For over four hours the elevator
was a raging furnace, though after
burning the fire had
spent its force and gradually abated
until eight hours after it'began only

CIRCUS TRAIN WRECKED.
Eight Men Badly Hurt in Accident at
A promiscuous heap of 100 circus
hands was pinioned under the debris
of two sleepers when a St. Paul
freight train crashed into the first sec
tion of Hagenbeck & Wallace's circus
train at the foot of Chestnut street
in St. Paul. Eight persons were seri
ously injured and twenty others slight
ly injured. Four loaded ..flat oars and
two sleepers were completely wrecked.
The circus train was passing
through St. Paul from New Richmond,
Wis., to Mankato, Minn., and was tak
ing the siding at the foot o£ Chestnut
street when the freight train came
tearing down the incline. It struck
the circus train in the middle, hurling
the four flat cars to one side. The
big mogul engine plowed through the
two sleepers, almost telescoping them.
The circus hands were thrown from
their berths and pinioned beneath the
seats and other debris. To add horror
to the moaning victims a fire sud
denly broke out in the wreckage and
for a time threatened the entire train.
The department was called and soon
had the fire under control.
The injured were taken to the city
hospital in the police ambulance and
patrol wagons. None of the men are
l,n a dangerous condition.
M'CLEARY TO ENTER- RACE
Ex-Congressman Decides to Go After
James T. McCleary of Mankato,
this state, second assistant postmas
ter general, has returned to Wash
ington from his home district,
where he has been looking into the
political situation and conferring with
his old friends. Mr. McCleary has de
cided that he will be a candidate for
the Republioan nomination for con
gress in the Mankato district, but he
will not make a formal announcement
of his candidacy for several days. It
is probable he will not resign from
his position in the postofflce depart
ment until after the primaries in the
district. He believes such a course,
the example having been set by Sec
retary Taft in not resigning from the
war department until after he was
nominated, will be amply justified.

One strange feature of this sea life
of the tropics is the regular recurrence
of migratory swarms of fish of very
small size that return in huge numbers
year after year with such absolute reg
ularity that the natives calculate on
the event on a certain day in each year
and even within an hour or two of the
day. One such swarm of fish forms
the occasion of an annual holiday and
feast at Samoa. The fish is not unlike
the whitebait for which the English
Thames has so long been celebrated,
and each year it arrives at Samoa on
the same day in the month of October,
remains for a day or at the most two
days and then disappears entirely till
the same day of the following year.
Why it comes or whence no curious
naturalist has yet discovered, nor has
anybody traced its onward course when
it leaves the Samoan group, but the
fact is unquestionable that suddenly,
without notice, the still waters of the
lagoon which surround each island
within the fringing reef become alive
with millions of fishes passing through
them for a single day and night and
then disappearing for a year as though
they had never come.—London Stand
The history of Armenia is not cheer
ful reading. With the exception of oc
casional brief periods, /the Armenians
have been almost continually under
some foreign rule. Assyrians, Babylo
nians, Medes, Persians, Macedonians,
Romans, Parthians, Saracens, Mongols
and Turks have each in turn dominated
the country, and of all these successive
foreign yokes the present one, that of
the Turks, has been the longest and
the heaviest The highest activities of
the Armenian people today are not to
be found in Armenia proper, but rather
in the marts of prominent cities the
world over. This is especially notice
able in Constantinople, Smyrna and
other cities of the Levant, where the
marked aptitude of the Armenian in
business enables him practically to
dominate the commercial situation.
One example is the oriental rug trade,
which is practically controlled by Ar

An old gentleman in a village not far
