TEMPORARY HOSPITAL FOR
PITTSBURG, July 25.—" Bargains.
Men's overalls 10 oents; men's shirts
The above sign in the window of a
store on Fifrli avenue at noon today
caused a disastrous stampede of bar
gain hunters. Eight women were ser
iously hurt in the rush to secure over
alls or shirts for the men folks, and a
reserve foroe of police had to be call
ed out in the downtown district. Am
bulances and patrol wagons backed up
to the doors of the store and for a
time it lookei as though there would
be a great loss of life.
As a result of the trouble and dan
ger iuourred it is likely there will be
a rule issued by the police against
bargain day sales in Pittsburg.
Mrs. Mary Hoover was worst
-hurt of the women who'got caught in
the orush. She fainted at the head of
a stairway and would have fallen to
the lower story had the crowd not
been too dense. She was held up in
the crush apparently dead. More
than a dozen women fell in a faint
and the police had to use their clubs.
After abont 2,500 of the women had
got out of the store, which by this
time looked like a wreck, it was turn
ed into a hospital and the injured wo
men revived and sent to their homes.

Klnar Oscar 11.
History contains few parallels to the
caf-e of Oscar 11., king of Sweden and
until recently of Norway also. For
thirty-three years he ruled over
two countries, which in 1814 were unit
ed under the government of one mon
arch, but otherwise remained separate
states. The union gave rise to friction
in the matter of the consular service.
Norway desired a separate service
from that of Sweden. King Oscar's
opposition to this plan resulted in the
action taken by the Norwegian storth
ing declaring that he was no longer
king of Norway and that the union of
that country with Sweden under his
rulership was dissolved. The king is
seventy-six years old.

mined to stop the traffic in inteoted
fruit. He says that the Horticultural
laws contains a great number of let
ters, and that he is determined to en
force every one of them so that both
buyer and seller had better be on the
lookout and keep their infected fruit
at home. ,

that it is possible the Omaha man may
close a deal for an immense tract of
land in this county.
Mr. Wharton's company operates
on a large soale and should it become

000 acres is usually the minimum.

BUILD CANAL BY CONTRACT
President Roosevelt May Invite Contractors
From all Over the World to Bid for
Subdivisions of the Work
CHICAGO, Jnly 25.—A Speoial
dispatch to the Reoord-Herald from
Washington, D. C , says: '
An important ohange of polioy in
regard to the Panama canal is now
under serious consideration. It is
nothing les6 than the proposal that the
government abandon the effort to oon
struot the canal directly across
through Jits own agenc ; es, and that
the whole or a greater part of the en
terprise be let to contractors, Amer
ican or foreign. This 'suggestion has
been made to President Roosevelt, and
the President has discussed it with
Secretaries Taft and Root, and others
with whom he advises as to the canal
enterprise. Presindet Roosevelt is
about half way convinced that the
way to dig the canal is is to get the
job in readiness lor the contractors,
subdivide the work into specialties,
and then invite the contractors of the
world to submit bids.
