also crdered that the tncmlx rshin of the
federated labor unions be confined to
wage-earners In the strictest sense. The

should be submitted to the affiliated or
ganizations, which report was adopt

prices show bu a slight shading In face
of the current Immense production. The

from a week ago, while corn, oats and
sugar are additions to the list of the
products showing advances. The un
satisfactory outlook for cotton goods it
reflected In reductions in bleached goods
to the lowest point ever reachel.
At the east trade in wholen lie lines Is
quiet, but retail trade has b on stimu
lated sufficiently to allow of t fair rec

who drowned his little daughter by ty

Into the Mirsourl as he would a dog
while the poor little one was looking
with child-like trust into his face and
asking him what he was going to do.
It became known here that a thrifty
photographer had been admitted to the
enclosure with a cinematograph ma
chine, and that he had been permitted
to photograph the closing incidents of
this revolting tragedy in all Its horrible
The machine was In operation from
the moment Carr appeared in the en
closure until the body was cut down,
and it Is claimed that on a film 1.000 feet
