"DRYS" LOST BIG FIGHT Illinois Legislature Kills Bill by Ad journment at Dawn. Springfield, 111., June 21. The drys lost one of their big fights in the Illi nois legislature when they failed early j today to get the "residence district op tion" bill off the speaker's desk in the lower house. The measure, which would allow voters to establish anti saloon territory in districts containing 800 to 5,000 ballots, was fought bitter ly but passed both nouses. Then It was found that the senate had amended the measure slightly and that it could not go to the governor unless the house concurred in the changes. Efforts of "dry" leaders to bring the bill up again in the house failed just before adjournment at dawn. No further business is to be trans acted by the legislature at this ses sion.

According to O'Donnell, union men in cities throughout the country are awaiting his word to walk out, and tie up the construction work of the nation. "All that is necessary is Just the word from Chicago." said O'Donnell. "I have heard from the leading unions and they have offered co-operation. They feel as we do that we have been badly treated, if the word goes out work will stop from San Francisco to Maine. "We are hesitating her. Tying up so much work would cripple the country. We will hold out until the last minute before taking such drastic action."

Said That Progressives Are Worrying About Matter. MAY SUPPORT W. WILSOF Henry Allen Did Jfot Get Bris tow Stuff Across. Lively Congressional Fights on the Card. The Progressive leaders of this state are disturbed over a Tumor ' brought from Washington by a Kansas man to the effect that the Kansas City Star is making plans to support President Wil son .in the next campaign. The Star began acting "suspicious" a few weeks ago when Senator Bristow was making vigorous assaults upon the president's tariff policy! At that time, Henry J. Allen was in Washington as the Star's correspondent. Mr. Allen who is a warm personal friend of Senator Bristow, obtained from the senator a statement ripping the Wilson tariff policy up one side and down the other. But the Star turned it down, greatly to the surprise of Mr. Allen, Senator Bristow and other prominent Bull Moosers. It is reported that when Mr. Allen inquired into the "why of it," he was advised that the statement was not in accord with the Star's policy. Prior to this time about anything Senator Bris tow said "went" with the Star. Short ly after the Bristow statement was cut out Allen left Washington and return ed to his own newspaper, the Wichita Beacon. It is understood that Mr. Al len did not leave Washington on that account. He left to look after his own newspaper mainly and Join Charles F. Scott in a series of debates on the side. The Progressives pinned their faith to the Kansas City Star in the last campaign and that is why the story from Washington makes them uneasy. They figured that the Star would stay with them at least through another campaign and help them reform the standpatters or force them to the wall. If the rumor that the Star Is holding itself in readiness to support the Wil son administration is true," the Pro gressives will lose a strong ally. The Star, it will be remembered by the old time politicians gave loyal sup port to Grover Cleveland during the entire period of his political activity. The Star, therefore, could go Demo cractic without much of a strain on its conscience. Kansas will see some lively congres sional fights next year. Already there is evidence of trouble in the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh districts and proba bly in the First and Fourth. Guy T. Helvering, who defeated Rol lin R. Rees for congress in the Fifth district only last November, has al ready accumulated enough trouble to insure difficulty in his re-election. Hel vering "messed" the postofflce patron age and in less than 0 days after his election some of the strong Democratic leaders of the district were laying for his political scalp with a meat ax. It Is now probable that Senator A. B. Carney of Cloud, Senator Harry McMillan of Ottawa county and Al exis Andreen of Saline county will enter the primaries to contest Helver Ing's right to a re-election. With this trouble in the Democratic ranks, it is rumored that W. A. Calderhead, dean of the Kansas delegation in Washing ton until 1910, may again enter the running and become a candidate to regain the seat he held for years. Cald erhead is a strong man and should he (Continued on Page Two.) nushneM. u REAL LIQUOR BILL Constitutional Amendment Is Proposed by Senator Works. Prohibit Manufacture and Im portation of Booze.

I manufacture and importation of dis ' distilled liquor containing alcohol "ex cepting for mechanical, scientific and medicinal purposes'" was purposed to day by Senator Works.

GIRL SAVESTRAIN Child Stops Iron Mountain Flyer in Arkansas. Waved Her Sunbonnet Near a Burning Bridge. Hot Springs, Ark., June 21. Pas sengers on the fast Iron Mountain train running between Kansas City 1 and Hot Springs owe the fact that they are alive to Bertha Key, 14 years old, who with her parents, lives on a farm two miles from Lonsdale, ten miles from this city. Shortly before 2 o'clock Friday aft ernoon. Bertha and her little sister took a walk down to the creek. Ar riving at the stream, the child was horrified to see the bridge in flames. She saw the rails were twisted and bent and realized the Kansas City Hot Springs Flyer would be along in a few minutes. Telling her sister to return to their home, a short distance away, and summon her father. Bertha ran up the track, climbed a high em bankment and awaited the approach of the train. In a few minutes it came around a nearby bend. The child frantically waved her sunbonnet and the en gineer applied the brakes. When the train stopped the engine was within eight feet of the bridge. When the passengers learned who had saved them they took up a col lection for the little heroine, who was very modest. It is said $100 was raised for her. "I don't think you should give me this money," the child said, "for what I did. It would have been awful If the engine had gone on the bridge, and I didn't want to see any of you hurt. Any girl would have done the same thing." A man whose name could not be learned accompanied the child back to her home. He had his camera with him and took a picture of Bertha and her parents. "I intend to see that' the Carnegie hero commission hears of this," he declared. Weather Forecast for Kansas. Showers tonight and Sunday; cool er tonight. THE NEW LAWN SWING PROBE RATE CASE Commerce Commission In quires Into Late Request. Will Consider Application of 52 Eastern Railroads. OPEN ON ITS OWN INITIATIVE Interstate Body Acted Without Railways' Demand. Question to Be Determined by Testimony Argument. Washington, June 21. On Its own initiative the interstate commerce commission today began an inquiry into the application of the 52 eastern railroads for increased freight rates. The commission denied the application of the roads to reopen the old "ad vance rate case" of two years ago. Hearings for railroads and shippers will begin this fall. Announcement of the commission's purpose was made today in the form of two orders based on the petition of the railroads five weeks ago seeking per mission to advance freight rates both class and commodity five per cent. In an effort to avoid the necessity for new tariff which would have cost the roads at least $250,000 officials requested the committee to reopen the old advance rate case that they might have an op portunity to demonstrate the necessity as they view it of the proposed increase of five per cent. This application was denied because the commission prepar ed to consider the present application as entirely new. In the old case only class rates were affected by the proposed advance; in the pending application it is proposed to increase all rate five per cent hori zontally. The questions involve are quite different. As the proposition stands it is a ques tion to be determined by testimony and argument. The roads petition that they are prepared to show the necessity of the expenditure of many millions of dollars for many purposes, "among which are enlargement of yards, and terminals, additional tracks, block sig nals, additional shops improvements in stations, changes and eliminations of grade crossings, new locomotives, new passenger and freight cars and other equipment; that these large expendi tures of money are demanded by exist ing future transportation conditions, and must be made if your petitioners are to satisfy the needs of the public for Improved and additional facilities."

HE IS A BOY AGAIN Millionaire Will Produce Circus Free to Kids. Edward Tilden Remembers Boyhood Disappointment. Chicago. June 21. Edward Tilden, the millionaire packer, will produce a circus today for "all the children within walking or riding distance" of the Til den estate at Lake Delavan, Wis. This is the way the advertisements which have appeared in newspapers near De lavan have read and upwards of 2,000 children are expected. The huge entertainment will cost $10,000 and has been planned for 25 years by the host. It has grown out of a painfully vivid recollection of a circus that had come to town and gone away again without his getting inside the tent. It was fresh in his mind when he left Delavan a quarter of a century ago to come to Chicago to "make his fortune." At the train Edward Tilden told friends. "I'm coming back some day and buy the town and give every one a good time and let every boy here go to a circus." HE LOOKS TO TOK 10 Aguinaldo's Son Quietly Slips in to Japan. Rumors of Freedom From American Reins. Tokio, June 21. The newspapers here report the arrival in Tokio of John Aguinaldo, son of Emilio Aguinaldo, the Filipino revolutionary leader. They say he wore Japanese dress and came to Tokio secretly, being followed later by a suite of three Filipinos. The newspapers reflect the Impression which obtains in some quarters that Aguinaldo has come to Japan to take advantage of the negotiations between Japan and the United States to secure the liberation of the Philippines from American rule. A dispatch from Tokio June 17, said reports from Kobe announced the ar rival of Aguinaldo in that city on his way to Tokio. It added that in Kobe Aguinaldo conferred with several Jap anese and that in some quarters it was believed his visit had to do with a movement for the independence of the Philippines. The foreign office at Tokio said it had no knowledge whatever of Aguinaldo. HIS HANDS TIED. TT. S. Attorney Resigns Because of Government Restrictions. San Francisco. June 21.

FELL 1,600 FEET Nayy Ariator Able to Tell of Escape From Death. Clung to Wrecked Aeroplane as It Hit Water. Annapolis, Md., June 21. After a fall of 1,600 feet in a hydro-aeroplane Lieutenant John A. Towers, chief of the navy aviators, was able last night to tell of his miraculous escape from death. His companion, Ensign W. D. Billingsley, was drowned when he fell from the machine in Chesapeake Bay. Lieutenant Towers clung to the wreck that followed his comrade's course from the sky to water. Al though at times his body swung clear of the rapidly falling airship, he main tained his hold with hand and arm almost wrenched apart. Afater falling about 900 feet the biplane turned a complete somersault and for a moment the force of the fall was broken. Striking the bay it carried Lieutenant Towers beneath the water, but rose to the surface almost immediately. The aviator feared that he would lose consciousness before he could be rescued and tearing loose the lashings of one of the planes, bound himself to a pontoon. Within a few minutes he was taken oft by B. L. Bronson and S. Kellar, who were watching the aeroplane's movements from a motor boat kept on the bay by the navy aviators for emergency. Tens His Story of Fall. At the Naval Academy Hospital Towers, in a state of nervous collapse, told the story of his fall. "Just before the accident. he said, "I looked at the altitude dial, and it showed that we were running at a height of about 1,625 feet. Just then a gust of wind seemed to come up from below. It struck the aeroplane underneath the rear planes and the machine lurched violently and took an uncertain dive forward. This threw Billingsley across the steering gear and the lateral rudder planes went out of business. With another forward plunge the biplane dropped down at express train speed. "It all happened in a minute. Bil lingsley went out of his seat and clear of the planes. When the ship started to fall I had one hand around the up right between the planes, and I locked it there. I knew that was my only hope. I was torn loose from the seat, but held on to the upright. I swung clear of the planes and the gearing. The strain on my arms and fingers was awful, but I clenched my teeth and held on. I tried to kick the steeling gear back Into order, but I could not mr.ke it go. "I looked down and saw Billingsley turning over in the air." TODAY'S GAMES. Western. Denver at St Joseph, cloudy. Lincoln at Des Moines, cloudy. Wichita at Omaha, cloudy.
