AETNA, Ind., July 9.?Thousands of 1 ghtning bugs caused terror among work men employed in the poyder mills here laet night, folowing a thunderstorm. The little insects, driven from the Kankakee marshes by the storm, settled down upon a tank containing several hundred gal lons of nitroglycerin. The employes saw the brilliantly illuminated bugs near the fcreat tank, arvd immediately scattered, running terror-stricken in ail directions In the fear that the tank would explode. It required nearly an hour for foremen of the mills to dispel the fears of the employer and induce them to return to Work. Ot;car F.

NEW YORK, July 9.?Alexander Sa j vanrjo, who was a fireman on tlie steam I er Montclssa on her arrival at the South I Brooklyn docks, but since that time has been a striker, is a prisoner in the Ham ilton avenue police station, held to await the result of revolver wounds inflicted by him on four men at 10:30 o'clock last night. Three of his victims were police men; the fourth was a seaman who, al though a union man, had refused to go on strike. Policeman Patriot Hanley, the second of the men shot by Savanno, is hi the Holy Family Hospital and is likely to die. Hanley was on post in the Red Hook district, when the sound of a shot made him whirl about in tlm* to see Savanno directly across the street from him with his revolver in his hand. Hanley started toward the Spaniard with a cry that drew his attention for the first time. Savanno seems to have paused for a single look only before he fired. Hanley had taken but two or three steps from his post when he went down with a bullet through his right lung. Witnesses the Shooting. To blocks up Imlay street Policeman Williams heard the shooting and saw Hanley go down. He ran for Savanno, who had started for Bowne street, and kept steadily on in spite of the fact that Williams fired twice at him. At the corner of Bowne street Savanno turned and sent a bullet into Williams' right leg. As the policeman fell Sa vanno fired a second bullet into his left shoulder. Policeman William J. McMillen had in the meantime taken up the chase from which Williams had been compelled to retire, and when Savanno backed up against a lumber pile McMillen closed in on him. Once more the Spaniard used his revolver, the bullet grazing the policeman's right ear. Balancing his night stick for use, McMillen had just got witihn striking distance of Savanno when Policeman William . Kenna joined him. The two policemen had a long fight be fore Savanno was overcome. When he had given in the policemen found that their work was only beginning. The shooting had attracted a crowd that blocked the surrounding streets, and into the lumber yard itself a steadily increas ing number of seamen and longshore men was coming as Savanno's captors made their first movement toward the gate. Policemen at Bay. As the crowd hemmed them in closer and closer the policemen gave over their effort to get away with their prisoner. They backed to a pile of lumber, and with Savanno behind them, fought off re peated efforts of the seamen to take Savanno away. The attempts had grown so bold that hands had been laid on the Spaniard when Capt. Hussey arrived with the reserves from the Hamilton avenue station. Even with the reserves the taking of Savanno to the station house was some thing of a task, for the crowd followed close at the heels of the officers. Ancietto Gonzales, a fireman on the steamer Grenada, was brought In with a bullet wound in his left leg. He identified Savanno as the man who had shot him, and before Hanley lapsed into uncon sciousness he, too, had identified the Spaniard as his assailant. Hanley, Williams and Gonzales were all taken to the hospital. Glass Pavements. From the Youth's Companion. Seven or eight years ago a plant was established near Lyons, France, for the manufacture of paving glass. Numerous descriptions of the new paving material were published and a brilliant future was predicted for It. The city authorities of Lyons permitted the manufacturer to lay u specimen section of glass pavement in the Place de la Republique, a center for heavy traffic. The glass bricks failed to stand the test of wear. The edges of them were soon broken and splintered and many of the blocks split in two, so '.hat within two years it became necessa y to remove the widely heralded innova tion and substitute stone or wood. The city officials are agreed that glass pave ment can.be used under favorable circum stances tor sidewalks, but not for the middle of streets. Rev. T. W. Lamb, who has been called to the First Baptist Church of Crisfield, Md., preached his first sermon there Sun day. Mr. I>amb is a student of Beddle Institute, Hlghtstown, N.

WORKERS' SCORE IS BIG Total of 856,000 Exterminated Germ Carriers Reported. FITZGERALD WELL IN LEAD Makes 43,000 Points on Nearest Competitor in July Contest. Girl Slayers Active. Two new records were hung up In The Star's anti-fly war yesterday. More than i three-quarters of a million insects were turned in at the campaign headquarters in the municipal building, while Lawrence Fitzgerald, alone, delivered approximately a third of this number. The contestants brought in a total of 856,000 exterminated germ carriers, ex ceeding the record of the best previous day by about 300,000 points. Lawrence Fitzgerald, by turning in 200,000 flies, gains the distinction of having captured more insects in a single day than any con testant since the crusade began. Former ly this distinction belonged to Lavton H. Burdette, who in the June campaign de livered In one day about 224,000 flies. With two-thirds of the campaign yet to be waged, the total slaughter of flies to date is 2,304,400. At the present rate the month's activities will result in the extermination of 7,000,000 of the Insects, but Dr. Murray, supervisor of the cam paign, believes that at least lO.OOi'.OOO ol the dread disekse spreaders will have been wiped out of existence by August 1. Surprise of July Campaign. The big sufprise of the July campaign is the remarkable record being estab lished by Lawrence Fitzgerald. This contestant, unaided, is spreading ruin among the enemy to a greater extent than whole armies of youthful "swat ters." He is relying exclusively on the use of traps. The keenest competition in the May and June contests was between Fitzgeraid and Layton H. Burdette, the latter win ning first prize both months. Burdette yesterday delivered 217,000 flies, but Fitz gerald's showing for the day was .about 43,000 points better, which, added to his previous score, gives him a lead over Burdette of 230,200. Yesterday's deliveries were the follow ing: Lawrence Fitzgerald, 280,800; Lay ton H. Burdette, 217,000; J. Mark Trice, 134,400; Charles Watts, 00,000; Annie Lis ton, 50,200; Walter Trougnt, 39.2J0; Gil lian Porton, 20,600, and Francis Corby, 10,200. Standing of Contestants. The relative standing of the contestants anfl their scores to date^ire the following: Ijawrence Fitgerald, 765,000; Layton W Burdette. 523,800; J. Mark Trice, 228,800; Walter Trought, 180,00; William Steiner, 157,000; Lillian Porton, 133,20"; Francis Corby, 98.000; Charles Watts, 00,000; An nie Liston, 78,400; Michael Thomas, 28,800; tBenjamin Abbott, 10,40?>; Lena Goldman, 800, and Ji>hn Biglow, 600. Charles Watts of Anacostia made his first appearance in the contest yester day, delivering yO^OOO flies and going into eighth place. There are three girls in the campaign, holding sixth, ninth and twelfth posi tions. Lillian Porton, with the score of 133,200, is the leader of the female con tingent. J. Mark Trice, by delivering 134,400 in sects, jumped from sixth to third place. Several changes in the standing of the contestants occurred yesterday. The campaign is on in earnest, and Dr. Mur ray expects it to be the most closely con tested of any yet held Activity in Good Hope. Lillian Porton and her sister Sophie, active participants in the campaign against the fly being conducted by The Star, are killing and trapping flies in such great quantities near their home at Qood Hope, D. C., that they have con verted their attractive cart into a fly de livery wagon. Though not the first girl to enter the campaign, Lillian is the first to organize a band of girls to fight the fly. Her chief assistant is her sister, and the pri vates in the army of killers are several girls living in the neighborhood of the Porton home. The girls have three traps, taking turns in baiting and cleaning them, and each is armed with a swatter. Good Hope is located in the Anacostia district of the campaign, and with the exception of Ralph Lucas the girls have no competition for that district prize. Lucas captured the district prize last month and both he and the girls are working hard in the campaign for July. The war on the fly is of much interest not only to the children actually en gaged in ridding the city of the pests, but it is learned that many of the men and women of the city have tried various experiments to prevent the flies invading homes. Ammonia as Exterminator. It was found the other night in one household that hundreds of flies can be asphyxiated in short order by the fumes of "strong household" ammonia. Early in the evening, when hundreds of flies had retired for the night, a glass of am monia was placed directly under them and immediately the pests took the death drop into the glass. This method of killing the flies took only a few minutes, and the equipment was simple. A chair to stand on to reach the flies and the glass of ammonia was all that was necessary. Few flies are now seen in this house, and the next army of invaders will be greeted with the same medicine. Prof. Hodge of Clarke University, who has given much study to tho fly, has the following to say about the pest: "The houae fly causes 100,000 deaths a year and does a property damage of $12,000,000. The fly travels only 1,500 feet and delights in a liquid diet. When he finds something he likes better than his latest meal he disgorges. One pair of flies beginning in May will breed 143,675 bushels by September. The time will come when it will be coisidered more dis graceful to have flies in our homes than it is now to have bedbugs." x NOW IN NEW YORK MUSEUM. Painting Bought by Morgan for $600,000 Transferred. NEW YORK. July f).?Raphael's paint ing "The Madonna of St. Anthony of Padua," which J. P. Morgan purchased in Paris ten years ago for $500,000, has just been transferred from the National Gallery, London, to the Metropolitan Mu seum of Art here. The picture was in cluded in .the eleventh consignment of Morgan jjj^kobjects, which arrived re cently on liner Olympic. The picture was originally painted for the nuns of St. Anthony of Padua, who had a convent at Perugia. In 1667 they obtained permission to sell it for about $2,000. The community needed money and believed the picture to be of small value. Auto Knocks Woman Down.

Prominent democratic senators are threatening to overturn the well laid plan of many republican leaders to let the trial of the proposed impeachment charges against Judge Robert W. Archbaid of the Commerce Court go over until next fall. The republicans have taken the posi tion that Congress has been in session a long time, that senators need a rest from their legislative work, and that time should be given Judge Archbaid for pre paring for the trial. It is also suggested that the approach of the November elec tions demands the presence of senators in their states in looking after political fences. Opposed to Delay. Democratic senators, including Bailey, Simmons and Reed, are contending there should be no delay in a matter of such importance. The last impeachment trial Involving a federal judge occupied nine weeks and some think there would not be time for the trial during the short session which comes next winter. To overcome that objection, senators in favor of the postponement suggest an extra ses sion beginning a few days after the No vember elections. Playground Directors Named.

PROBES CRUELTY REPORT State Department Sends Agent Into Peruvian Rubber Country. As a result of consultation with British officials and other persons interested In the welfare of the native rubber gatherers on the upper Putumayo river, in addition to making strong representations on the subject to the Peruvian government, the State Department has dispatched one of its most trusted and capable agents into that wild country to report upon the facts at first hand. Acting Secretary Huntington Wilson re ceived information yesterday that this agent, Capt. Stuart Fuller, had arrived HELPING TO RID CITY OF FLIES. LILLIAN AND SOPHIE PORTON AXD THEIR LITTLE PONY CART, IN WHICH THEY BRING THEIR PLIES TO THE DISTRICT BUILDING. V / at Iqultes, about 2,000 miles up the Ama zon river, which port he will make his base of exploration, using steam launches for the upper reaches of the Amazon and Its tributary, the Putumayo. Conditions Similar to Kongo. The reports to the State Department in brief indicate the existence of condi tions under the equator in South Amer ica that parallel those which It is charged existed In the Kongo country in Africa, when the natives were forced by horrible tortures and mutilations to collect certain quantities of rubber for the concession aries, who, in the case of the Putumayo, Is asserted to be an English corporation. It is a curious fact that it remained for British representatives and the British government itself to disclose these charges against the corporation. The State Department, although with out direct Interest In the matter, as no American citizens are Involved, has seen fit to address the Peruvian government in the broader interest of humanity. It has secured pledges from that govern ment that through decrees which have been promulgated the obnoxious condi tions will be terminated. The State Department is now sending Capt. Puller on this rather dangerous mission to make sure that this pledge has been redeemed. OFFICER EXONERATED, Deputy Sheriff Not Responsible for Death of Mrs. Mareska. HASTINGS-ON-HTTDSON. N.
