Awiul Destruction of the I
Burning Oil Can Not
be Estimated.
d
Fifty-one hours have passed d
spince lightning set the Jenaings
oil field on tire, and the destruc- tl
tive tire is still raging,and hotterI(
than ewer. No efforts have been d
made during the past twenty- S
four hours to quench the fire, S
although big preparations have h
been going on, wvhich takes lots
of hard work, to make .a supreme
attempt to subdue the tlames.
A carload~ of chemicals arrived
from New Orleans this morning, t
consisting .of saltpetre, alum, t
borax, etc.
This is all that could be se
cured in New Orleans, but more
has been ordered from Houston g
and Galveston and is expected a
here this evening.. Teams have
been hauling the material out to
the well today, and it is expected
that the work of extinguishing
the fire will begin some time to
morrow, as it will be a day's t
work to mix the chemicals. Six
or more steam Oilers will be
brought into requisition to force d
the chemicals and steam onto the d
fire, which it is confidently be- g
lieved by the owners of the well
will have the desired effect.
Immense numbers of people
t have been visiting the scene of E
e the fire all day yesterday, all s
- night last night and all day to
day. The tire draws a bigger t
i crowd thian wiLs ever seen at a e
"(gusher exhlioition. It is truely c
-i a gre at sight, the flatle:; shooting s
upward 50 to 10(0 feet high, being
at times entirely hidden by great 1
rolls of black srmoke And the
roaringof the tire, and the awful
hissingo of the escaping gas is
something fearful. F
The pro j:ertydestroyed by this tl
fire was valued at nearly $10,000 i
and the value of the oil destroyed d
can not be estimated, but will run
into many thousands. d

she leaned forward he grabbed
her ankles and pulled her to the
ground and assaulted her.

By Union Associated Press.

sum is double its present pro
portions and a joint conference

for the purposeof drawing up an
agreement to keep coal out of
the strike districts or closing
down the bituminous mines at

RICE TO DIE.
Pays the Penalty of his Crimes oatbe
Gallows Tomorrow.
Special to the Record.
Toronto, Ont., .July 17.- The
cabinet having declined to inter
fere, Fred Lee Rice. one of the
most desperate criminals with
which the Canadian authorities
have had to deal in many years,
will pay the penalty of his mis
deeds on the gallows tomorrow.
The condemned criminal is an
Illinois man, a former resident
of Champaign and a student of
the University of Illinois.
The crime for which he is to
be executed was the outgrowth
of a less heinous offense, the rob
bery of a bank, for which Rice
and three confederates had re
ceived sentences of 21 years im
prisonment-. Rice and his com
panions formed a gang of the
most notorious and daring porch
climbers on the continent.
Wherevel there was opportunity
for plunder they went. They
did not confine their operations
to porch-climbing. Highway
robbery, burglary and forgery
were among their accomplish
ments, and for many years they
baffled the efforts of the police to
effect their capture. Originally
the gang was composed of Rice,
Frank Rutledge, a Canadian, and
Frank Stewart. All were des
perate characters, shrewd in their
methods, skilled in the arts of
the confidence man and utterly
without fear. They made their
headquarters at Chicago, but con
ducted their operations princi
pally in o;thJer cities, returning to
Chicago t~, dispose of and divide
their plunde~r at stated intervals.
Thle crime fr which Rice is to
pay the (death penalty is the kill
ing of an ,fttic.r while being taken
to jail after conviction and sent
ence to the penitentiary.
