At Fumtauls & Elsewelre - -- - •- Uloata MuLKn TRAIN IS BEATEN BY ATWOOD DARING AVIATOR RACES WITH LOCOMOTIVE AND IS NOT ONCE HEADED. Swanville, Pa., Aug. 1.--What he called one jump, brought Harry N. Atwood, the Boston aviator, from Cleveland to Ewanvllle, Pa., this after noon and landed him 84 miles nearer his destination In his flight from St. Louis to New York. Atwood was to have flown to Erie, but a lack of gas oline forced him to land 11 miles west of Erie. He came down without ac cident and glided into a cornfield In the twilgllllht. Starting from Cleveland after much delay, Atwood went through the air at terrific speed. A fast mall train, which left Cleveland 20 minutes after him, failed to catch him/ Atwood even gained until he was 30 miles ahead of the train, his actual flying time for the 84 miles from Cleveland being two hours, seven minutes. He is now 727 miles from his starting point in St. Louis and 658 miles from New- York, having been In the air, since he Iftt last Monday, 15 hours and 2S minutes. BURIAL AT BUTTE. Friends of the Austrian miner, Kristo Wukjlovich, who fell dead on the street In this city last Wednesday evening, came over from Butte yester day and took the remains to Butte last night for burial. ADJOURNMENT COMES EARLY NEXT WEEK (Continued from Page One) with unabated fury until the close of the polls in November, 1912." This was the signal for such an out burst as seldom has been known in congress. It was a genuine demonstra tion fromi his fellow-democrats. Again and again as he continued, the demo crats applauded, cheered and pounded their desks until Democratic Leader Underwood, who occupied the chair, almost despaired of maintaining order. Continuing, Mr. Clark said: "Mr. Underwood and myself never advo cated this tariff board. We never voted for it. I will tell you what we did ad vocate and what we did vote for, and that is to make that board responsible to the house of representatives in gen eral and to the ways and means coin mlttee In particular. "I am not going to say anything de rogatory of this tariff board, but I am oling to say what I think, as I always do. But any member of the ways and means committee knows more about the tariff than that entire tariff board rolled together." The speaker challenged the state ment that the wool bill had been "un considered" and referred to the demo cratic caucus of members-elect on January 10, which lie said had been called "My crazy scheme, but It worked Illke a charm." He defied former Republican Leader Payne to state that his- ways and means committee ever spent three months on any tariff schedule. "The president made a speech at Winona. The only part of that speech that was any good was that part of it in which he said the wool schedule was too high and ought to be reduced. "I was so certain that the presi dent would sign the bill cutting down the wool tariff that I lost the best hat that can be made In the Unlta. States on that proposition. I took him at his word. I never did believe he would veto it until the last two or three days." Then the roll was called. The 22 insurgents who stood on their former record and voted to pass the wool bill over the veto, were: Anderson, Davis, Lindbergh, Miller, Hterenerson and Vol stead of Minnesota; HIanna and Helge son of North Dakota; Haugen, Hub bard and Woods of Iowa; Kent of California, Norris of Nebraska, Jack son, Madison, Murdock and Young of Kansas: IAIn'ollette and Warburton of Washington; Lenroot, Morse and Nel son of Wisconsin. Akin of New York, independent re publican, also voted to override the veto. The eight insurgent republicans who voted with their colleagues for the conference retport last Monday, but who deserted them to buppurt the veto, were: Nye of Minnesota, 'sacih, Kopp and Davidson of Wisconsin; lees of Kan sas, Stephens of t(aliforltia; hloan and Kinkald of Nebraska. No sooner had the result been an nounced than the assistant secretary fronl the White Ilotase arrived with the president's veto of the free-list bill. After it had been read, Mr. Undeitr wood moved that it ,ie passed, not withstanding the veto. l'ullowing 20 minutes discussion, led by Represen tative Payne and Mr. Underwood, the roll was called, the vote being 226 uyis and 127 nays, much less than the necessary two-thirds mnajojrity. Of the free-list bill, the republicans who voted to override the veto that did not so vote on the wool bill, were: French of Idaho, Kincaid of Ne 'braska, Lafferty of Oregon and Mor gan of Oklahoma. Republican Leader Mann preb.ented a privilege resolution. It proposed to send the cotton bill amended by the senate back to the rsenate, submitting that it was in contraventlion of the constitution, which provides that all revenue legislation must originate witn the house. Democratic Leader Underwood's mo tion to table this resolution was sus talned, 185 to 141. "rCaloriculture" is a word that has deal nate a new system destned to rephawe in. IV t "a.

J LatitiranA1 fUla rallway w rkqrL SCORES OI THOUSANDS, ON STRIKE THREATEMNG TROUBLE IN ENGLAND London, Aug. 18.-Scores of thou sands of railway employee throughout the United Kingdom mae on strike to night and traffic everywhere is bad V disorganised. The leaders of the Amalgamated Boclety ot Railway servants declare that 320,000 men, or nearly half the total employes of the railways of EFngland, Ireland, Scot land and Wales, have answered the call to stop work. Managers of the railways say these figures are greatly exaggerated. Never before have the ministers of a British government made such earnest efforts to ward off a great labor war, yet tonight they have been unable to stay a movement that promises to en. tall inconvenience, probably misery, to nmillions. An Armed Camp. London has the appearance of an armed camp. On all sides are seen. soldiers, rifles In hand and leaden bullqts in their belts, while from the dome of St. Paul's cathedral the en ineers are keeping in communication with the general staff by electric flashes at night. The whole of today was spent by Premier Asquith, David Lloyd-George, chancellor of the exchequer, and Syd ney Buxton, president of the board of trade, in fruitless conference with the leaders on both sides. An official statement Issued at the home office late tonight says the strike has devel oped all over the country and pro duced a widespread, though only par tial, dislocation of the railway service. It adds that as far as present In formation, goes, over two-thirds of the railway men remain at their posts and the companies are receiving numerous applications for employment. FLATHEAD CITY IS CHOSEN BY ELKS (Conlinued from Page One) specials will be required to accommo date the Montana delegation. ' A very graceful speech was made by Dan J. Heyfron of Missoulat, who withdrew the candidacy of the Gar den city for the ho~qr of entertain ing the next convention, and spoke in favor of Kallspell as the chalce of western Montana. He said that Mis soula hoped to see all of the state Elks gather with them on the occa sion of the dedlcationoft the Elks' new building, a handson a structure in progress of erection their city, and that would be honorl enough for Mis soula. The business session this morning was disposed of in 4ystematic order. The reports of the officers showed a healthy filnancial condition of the or ganization with 4,000 members in good standing .In the state. The Parade. The Elks'iparade tdnight, the crown Ing event of the cotyentlon of the Elk lodges of Montana, eclipsed anything over shown in this state from the standpoint of a society pageant. The procession, unique, grotesque and novel, stretched out a mile and a half and wound its way through streets lined with humanity, immense crowds being brought down from Butte on the evening trains to witness the parade. A feature of the procession was the Great Falls drum corps, whose stirring martial music attracted general atten tion and to whose lively strains the Elks from northern Montana stepped high and marched with military pre cision. The antlered ones from the Bitter Root had the most unique display in the line of march. They had a mock drum corps, organised by Paul Grad berane, 50 Elks drepsed as "rubes" and made up to match with whiskers and goatees. They wore linen dusters, straw hats and white bands, smoked corncob pipes and carried bundles of oats with purple and white bands. All along the line this evoked a laugh and a cheer that was as long as the parade Itself. One of the splendid appearances was made up by the Butte Elks. They wore the regulation Montana Elks' uniform and were headed by the Bos ton & Montana band. All the mem bers of the delegat'ion were harnessed together in bonds of red, white and blue festooning. The Helena Elks wore white Prince Albert coats, purplo chrysanthemums in boquets andl trousers with broad purlple stripra. high-topped hats and carried purple and white parasols. Tlheir showing aroused continued ap plause. The (lOate (i'lty band of Livlngetan, with its gigantic drulm major, led the eastern Montna Elks. The Kalislupell Elks, victorious in the quest for the honor of entertaining the next Elks' coi.ventlon, made the streets fairly ring alth their shouts. . They wore 'blure ;erge suits and white duck Ipantalon andlt they had a banner whleh read, 'Kalispell In 1912; bring lyour wives." The Anna,. nda band was the escort for the home division, who had in the place of honor tile drill team com posedl of 16 young ladles. "General" Harold Blake was in command of the corps. Robert Dunn and Peter Som erilauser were his lieutenants, The Iyoung ladlies were the flower of Ana conda, dressed In natty uhiforms of white with purple trimmings and ear rled staves tipped with purple pen nants. They kept step with the pre clision of veterans and performed marching evolutions as they pro gressed along the street. The ovation given them was spontaneous from the nlultitude. An immense flag that well filled thle street was carried by a score of the Anaconda delegation and the marchers each and all were dresed in the natty tate uniform' nd carried canes 'with Saqr~ers. ~e tn tm came the sar. atng faretOwplth an "l~Egyptian" dancer and. A psweii w L.o .4uranlshh-e4 m The statement notes the absence of serious disorders and says the mill* tary authorities have the situation thoroughly under control. It also is tere to the settlement of the London dock strike and says there will be a renumption of the unloading of cqr goes tomorrow. According to the best information, what Jeopardises the negotiation for a settlement of the railway trouble Is not so much the .obduracy of the strike leaders as the Intractability of the strikers themselves. The archbishop of Canterbury has Issued a special prayer for a cessation of the strike. In Setland. The situation in Scotland is uncer tain. Only a few of the Irish railways have trouble, but the strike is most effective In the north of England and in the south of Wales. On the whole there is much less disorder thin expected. Prices of food, as far as London is concerned, show little change and a resumption of work tomorrow by the dockers in unloading 60 ships that are waiting to discharge their cargoes will tend to bring the situation to normal. Should the strike continue, a serious question will be the milk supply, for which London Is wholly dependent on the railway service. The strike is throwing a large amount of extra work on London's tramway service and there are serious fears of a strike of these employes. Tonight the railway companies an nounced that all excursion trains had been annulled. This will nmake the usual week-end trips to the country by the populace impossible. the edification of the spectators along the curb. A hundred autos under slowest gear chugged along, all of them decorated and loaded with elks and their fami lies or trlenjs. CONVICTS ESCAPE. Bolling'him. Wash., Aug. 18.-Over powering two guards and seising their rifles, three convicts broke away from the state rock quarry at Deception pass today and are hidden somewhere In the tangled brush of the island. Every avenue of escape is guarded and launches are patrolling the shores to prevent possible friends of the fu gitives from taking them off by boat. Four posses have been organised in Anacortes, and a battle Is expected. POISON IS TAKEN BY MYRTLE REEO (Continued from Page One.) and a porrespondence that ensued for a number of years was opened. In 1906. Miss Reed and Mr. McCul t lough, who had by that time made S Chicago his home, slipped away quietly to Grand Haven, Mich., and were mar-I rled. Mrs. McCullough entertained original ideas on the subject of tha, s "Sterner Sex" and It had been her de light to poke good natured fun at mop. For instance, she had written: "Is the average man only a little better than the mushroom? At his best a delicacy; at his worst a poison?" "Most wives are expected to run a porterhouse steak establishment on a mutton stew allowance." "Men, the married kind, are thb greatest gold-brick artists in the world-their wives are easy marks." An inquest into the death of Mrs. McCullough was begun today by Deputy Coroner Spear. James Sidney McCullough, the husband, who left home early yesterday and was away when his wife was found deed, is f sought as a witness. Annie Larsen, the maid, today said Mr. McCullough left home, saying he was going to take a trip to Michigan and expected to be gone several days. She had been In the service of the fam Ily four years, she said, and during that time she had never heard the Mc Culloughs quarrel. The coroner's jury returned a ver dict that Mrs. McCullough "committed suicide by taking an overdose of a sleeping powder while temporarily in sane from insomnia and delusion." E. Reed, a brother of Mrs. McCul Slough, testified that he had heard that Shis sister did not get along well with her husband. He said she was subject to fits of despondency. Annie Larsen, the maid, testified that Mrs. McCullough's health was good, but that she frequently complained of having the "blues." The witness said Sher mistress suffered from insomnia and had taken sleeping powders con tinually for four years. S "The last tine I saw her alive war r at 11:30 o'clock Thursday morning, Swhen she came to me in the kitchen, put her arms around my neck and kissed me," said the witness. "She s aid: " 'Dear Annie: I Inclose a check for $1,000, which I want you to have In ap Sprecdation of over four ye's of faith ful service, If my husband had been Shalt as good to me as you have been, I would not be going away now. You Sknow how he hlas treated me ever Ssince we were married, and how I tried to bear up against it. But it's no good. There is no more use. I hope the next 2world will be kinder to me than this. Everybody has been good to me but my Bhusband and I cannot bear It any more.'" ' EXPLQO1ON KILLS POUR.
