No Until in Forty-eight Huys I.or
Fixed nt hPTPiily Million.
Hostoti (Mass.), June 5 With
the exception of two or three very
trilling showers no rain has fallen
in New Kugland in forty-eight
days, and the loss to the agricul
tural interests of the entire section
is enormous. At the office of the
Massachusetts Hoard of Agriculture
today it was said that unless copious
rains and warm weather come at
once the previous estimate of the
loss to the farmers of New England
of $70,000,000 will not prove too
This estimate . is based on the
value of the agricultural products
in a normal year of $135,000,000,
divided as follows: Hay and for
age, $43,300,000; cereals, $7,500,
000; vegetables, $84,500,000. The
los on these crops is already 75 per
cent, and the probable loss on live
stock and livestock products owing
to the failure of hay and forage
brings the total up to considerable
more than $70,000,000.
Drought conditions throughout
New England are about equally as
bad. In Vermont the hay crop is
already so far gone that hay is
selling at retail in the country at
$20 a ton, an unprecedented price.
In New Hamshire the hay and
grain promise to be almost complete
failures, and in Maine, where great
quantities of potatoes are raised,
ruin faces the farmers.
In this State the tobacco crop
will be a failure and truck farmers
are already ploughing up their
crops to get the land ready to plant
agaiu when the rain does come.
Rhode Island and Connecticut
are slightly better off, owing to the
character of the soil, than Northern
New England, but their losses will
be enormous. Hay in Boston this
week jumped from $18 to $25 a ton,
and is very scarce at that.
In all sections the fruit will be
short. Added to drought losses,
the forest fires of the past mouth
have been very severe. On Cape
Cod are immense tracts of burning
woods, and Boston for three days
has been densely overhung by
clouds of smoke.
Maine and Vermont have lost
many thousands of acres of forests
and the fires are still raging. Sev
eral small villages in Maine have
been almost completely, wiped out

KiHtnirrillirClilciiKO Tribune nt '20,-1
000 n Year. '
Chicago, June 3. James Kceley '
who began work on the Chicago I
Tribune about twelve years ngo as 1
night police reporter, is now pub-,
Usher of that newspaper, having 1
graduated through the various '
positions of night city editor, city
editor and managing editor. He
succeeded Will Van Bethuysen in
the last named position when the
lattei went to the New York World
five or six years ago.
One of Mr. Kecley's first moves
after R. W. Patterson, the editor of
the Tribune, had installed him in
his new job, was to engage John T.
McCutchcon, the Record-Herald's
cartoonist, at a salary that makes
one dizzy. It is reported that
Cutch is to get $20,000 a year on a
three years' contract for one cartoon
a day. Some one has figured that
this is at the rate of $59 a cartoon.
McCutchcon will draw his last
cartoon for the Record-Herald for
next Sunday's issue. Next week
he starts on a three weeks' automo
bile tour with George Ade in the
hitter's machine, the Little Whoop
ing Cough. He will begin work on.

Croud Mocks Brooklyn Bridge.
New York, June 6. What the
police call the most peculiar crush
that has ever taken place at the
Brooklyn bridge peculiar because
there was no apparent cause for it
occurred today at the Mauhatten
end of the structure. Mobs swept
the police and guards aside like so
many straws, and up stairs, where
the passengers go aboard through
trains, the receiving boxes for the
tickets were torn up and the stout
brass railing guarding the entrance
was uprooted and cast aside.
About ten thousand persons, the
police estimate, succeeded in getting
on the traips before the entrance,
was cleared tof the dense mass of
humanity surging around it.
Probably none of the through trav
elers had bought a ticket or paid
Down below, at the trolley loops,
the jam was just as great. The
great crowd finally caused a stop
page of all trains and cars, and for
three-quarters of an hour not a car
left for the Brooklyn side. That
no one was seriously injured in the
crush is regarded by the police as
remarkable. The twenty-eight
regular police on duty were power
less and twenty-five more were de
tailed. Finally part of the crowd
was driven back into the street ond
the police mastered the situation.
Gravesend, Bath Beach, Coney
island and picnic crowds helped
make up the crush.
Irish Compromise will l'uss.
London, Knglaud, June 23. A
'careful canvass of sentiment in
Parliament indicates that a com-
1 promise on the Irish land tuir-
chase bill will likely be passed
by a good majority. The possible
changes in the bill will not impair
the general principles laid down in
the original measure, which pro
vides for the purchase of lands by
present tenants with the assistance
of the Government.
Thinks Clrll War is Threatened.
Chicago, June 6. "Respect for
civil law and obligation alone can
save this country from a civil war
in the next generation." Dr. P.
T. Chamberlain, formerly president
of the Wisconsin University and
now a professor in the University
of Chicago, thus summed up the
labor situation as seen in Chicago
and throughout the country.
"Things are transpiring in Chi
cago," he said, "which are causing
citizens grave concern. I refer to
the labor question and the right of
a man to labor where and when
and how he pleases, and the right
of a man to manage his business in
what manner he may decide."
Dr. Chamberlain was the prin
cipal speaker at the annual banquet
of the University of Wisconsin Club
held last night in the Auditorium
Hotel. He held out as a panacea
for existing conditions education as
offered in the State institution.
Threatened With Water Famine.
New York, June 5. The World
says: New York is threatened
with a water famine, and Colonel
Robert Gier Monroe, Commissioner
of Water, Gas and Electricity, has
sent a request to consumers that
they use as little water as possible.
If the drought continues for any
length of time and lavish waste is
not stopped the city will suffer
Since the 1st of May the reserve
supply of 45,000,000,000 gallons
has been drawn on at the rate of
280,000,000 gallons a day. The
effect has begun to show itself on
the reserve, as the watet is steadily
going down in the.teservoir. The
water officials have found that there
is a waste of at least 32,000,000 '
gallons a day in Manhattan.
