Tacoms. Avar. V —Special.— Attor
ney John P. J idson is a free talker. Not
being fully satisfied with the two decision*
of Judge Pritchard last weak, by which
.Mayor Orr's election to the office of mayor
was determined and Mayor Fawcett's com
missioner of publi:' work* was fired out of
oflV e when the invalidity of the charter
amendments was settled by the court, he
gave vent to his feelings in an interview
in the Ledger, in which he cast serious
reflections on the board of public works.
The attention of Arvld Rydstrom wnd R.
B. Mullen, of th* board, was called to the
interview, and the following open letter
was sent tonight to the Leiger:
"John F\ Judson—Dear Str: In the Ta
coma Da 'y ledger of August S appears
what purports to be an Interview with
you. in which, among other thl'igs, you
are quoted as making the fallowing state
ment: 'The old board of public works is
the most expensive and useless institution
that we ever had, and to my certain knowl
edge, there was not a purchase made by
them but what they had a rake-off.'
"The undersigned have been for many
months and are now members of the board
of puMle works of the city of Tacoma.
and we desire to inquire whether you made
the statement quoted, and if so, whether
you had reference to the undersigned, or
either of U9? If you made the statement
and had reference to either of us, we now
publicly brand you as a willful and ma
licious liar and as a scoundrel, and chal
lenge you to place all the information you
have concerning th* matter referred to
in the hands of the prosecuting attorney
of Pierce oounty, or take such other action
as may speedily cause a Judicial deter
mination of your charges.
"No honorable man can make tha
charges that you have made without being
wS'lirg to ha k up his assertions with
proof, and if you refer to us we demand
and challenge you to the proof and the
facts. If your charges are true, the crim
inal laws of the state ought to and will
afford r ill ani complete pun.tfcment for
the guilty parties. In common fairness
ans ii-n">n~y you should substantiate the
truth of your charges by a criminal prose
cation or other Judicial de-armlnation. and
we hereby and now request, demand and
challenge you to the proof.
Mr. Judson't utterances are plainly
libelous in character, if they are untrue,
and It is understood the board, which Is
waiting to be asraln pla ed In office by the
courts, has retained counsel and will bring
a suit for slander against the city attor
ney, if not also a rimlnal prosecution.

Tacoma. Aug. 10.—Special.—At a special
meeting of the city council tonight a res
olution was passed directing the city at
torney to prepare an ordinance funding
th* outstanding warrant Indebtedness,
amounting to Th" ordnance
leaver out about n«2,'"*>o of general fund
warrants which the committee appointed
to pre par* the ordinance has reportod
w ~r « once paid by Treasurer Porks. They
».«re redeem*! out of the order of their
issue, and afterward deposltel in banks
to the city's credit. The banks failed, and
the city will endeavor to avoid payment of
them again.
It was expected that the council com
mittee, composed of Norton and Whltty,
would b« i'.ile to find evidence establish
ing the illegality of over J3*VWO of war
rants which h id b- rn treated in the same
way by Treasurer Bopps as the others.
Thf c- mm * is not as «>:<- -essful as
•as expected In digging up the evidence.
Many of the councilman are strongly op
posed to exchanging the cash received
from the s .le of the bonds for the war
rants. and there will likely be a fight over
the ordinance.

New Tork. Aug. 10.—The number of
deaths osused by the heat m Greater New
York today is 131. and additional victim*
are be.ng reported hourly. The p: ytra
trona are almost innumerable, and no ac
curate statement of tht-m can be male.
Ambulances and patrol wagons have be«n
running about ail day, the soun-.i of thesr
gongs becoming tam.iiar. Street car
horses have dropped in their tricks by
score*. Out-of- ioor work has been large
ly suapeaded. and factories are tempo
rarily closed. Last night was the hottest
of the summer, the ciimaJt of the present
torr.d spell and one of the hottest known
ia tiia city for years. Morning brought
no relief, anl a: S a. m. the thermometer
stood at KJ. 5 degrees higher than at tha
same hour on Sunday, but aa the humid'
ity was iesa intense than on the preced
ing day, there was less discomfort. Kar.y
in the mormng there was but 30 per cent,
of humidity, which is rather below tha
normal. The maximum temperature, SO
degrees, was reached at 4 p. m. These
r.ai.njfs are taken on top of one of the
highest buildings In the city. The street
temperature, taken in the shade at a
point near the center of the citv, waa S6
«i » a. m.. y; at 11, 99 at 1 p. m.. 108 at 4.
». at 7 and 89 at 9 p. m.
The suffering has been most Intense in
the tenement »• Mion. where poor people
are unable to get breathing sj>ace. In
these sections the charitable organiza
tions have had the r han.fc full, many in
fants atid children succumbing to sun
stroke. Tiie hospitals were obliged to call
on the pobce department to aid them in
resi>onding to calls, as their ambulances
could not cope with the number of cases
reported. So the olice patrol wagons
were pressed into service to carry heat
victims to the hospitals. Many other
wagons were used to carry away dead and
d sabled animals.
At midnight there was no relief from th®
strain of the past week, and on thousands
of roofs in the city dwellers are trying to
get sleep.

At Bi>ston and other cities in New Kn
gland there are the same conditions as ex
ist here. Providence. R. 1., reports three
deaths and two iro»tration3.
Chicago. Aug. 10.—The continued heat
has greatly affected police patrolmen and
lettet carriers. About fifty of the latter
hav#been compelled to (jult work, and two
or tMTee may die. Some of th« big depart
ment stores have, during the last few
days, practically been turned into hos
pitals. girl clerk 3 have fainted by
doxen* at their counters and hundreds of
th«m have quit work on account of the
heat. Forty-five persons have died today
from heat. Lust Week "77 deaths were re
ported to the department of health, which
is the largest for any week in many years.
It is estimated that over 1,000 animals,
killed by the heat, are lying in different
parts of the city, and the authorities ad
mit that they are unable to remove the
animals promptly.
It b- gan to grow uncomfortably
warm here at early dawn. A steady
hot wind blew over the city from
the marshes beyond the southern limit.
The heat la terrible, even on the lake
front and the quarters where wealth and
plenty abound, but In the poverty-stricken
tenement districts the agony is awful to
contemplate. Ambulances and patrol
wagons were on the run all night, bearing
victims of the heat to hospitals. The first
death from the heat reported today was
that of Fred Rafter, a laborer. Herman
Ashe and Thomas Wonabonb were report
ed as having died of heat during the night.
The coroner's off! ~e was never so busy.
The total list of victims of heat prostra
tions on Sunday numbered sixty-flve. Of
these twenty-two are dead, ten are ex
pected to die and three w re driven insane
by the heat. Of the. three driven Insane
by the heat, one ended his life
by poison »ni another attempted
to slash his thror.t with a raz>r.

Washington Ctty. Aug. 10—M.aJ. Dun
woody. the w cather forecaster, scanned
tha map tonight in vain for a prospect of
relief from rhe terrible heat under which
the country has ben sweltering for the
past week. It was slightly cooler in tha
< »hio valley, and the lower lake region was
given a slight breathing tpcll by thunder
s 1 arms. The temperature has also fallen
slightly in the Mississippi valley, the mer
cury today registering but 95, as agiinst
<« at St. Louis and Chicago yesterday,
p. it on the prairies of Nebraska an 5 Kan

humanity struggled to exist at lO) de-
grees. The Atlantic coast, as far *s Bos

tha latter place it was «. whi' h was also
the maximum at Atlantic City. The same
temperature existed at Albany. There is
no prospect for relief in this locality to

A Tornado Sweeps Or»-r Milwaukee.
Milwaukee. Aug. I«>.—At midn last
night a tornado passed over the city, com
ing from the west. There was little warn
ing of its approach. The storm s» lit
down on the city with an awful ro*\r,
blinding flashes of lightning and tern.lc
rolls of thunder. The wind carried in its
wake signs and awnings, and there was
a rattling of falling glass and cries from
the people rushing along to escape its
fury. Those in hgh buildings saw .he
force of the storm in all its Intensity. '»n
the bay the excurs on steamer Bloomer
Girl, which piles between here and WhHe
fish bay. was believed to have foundered,
as it was known she had started on her
return trip Just before the storm broke.
There were 300 men. women and children
on board, and they were pan c-strickt?n.
many of the women fainting. The fact
that the steamer wns packed undoubtedly
prevented a disaster, for the passengers
were obliged to remain as they were. If
the crowd had been smaller there woull
have been a rush to either side, and the
steamer would have capsiite i. The wav.»s
dashed high over the vessel, but she
plowed her way piu-kily into port, arriv
ing at midnight. The wnd swung one of
the budges in the river open, and a street
car pretty well fille 1 narrowly escaped g >-
ing over into the draw Alarm is felt for
a number of small boats that were on tha
bay, and as soon as the storm had spent
its force several tugs started out. but were
unable to see any vessel or boat in dis
tress. The glass in many buildings was
blown out, and several structures were un
roofed in the outskirts of town. Numer
ous cellars were flooded, and much prop
erty was damaged.

To Be Completed and Operated by an
Ktigili-di syndicate.
San Francisco. Aug. 10.—Information has
Just been received which is of the greatest
interest on the Pacific coast from Its re
lation to the problems of freight and
transportation. An English syndicate, at
the head of which Is Sir Wheetman Par
son, M. P. for Colchester, his just con
cluded a lease with the Mexican ««»V' rn
ment of the Tehuantepec Isthmus railway.
The term* of the lease include an agree
ment on the part of the syndicate to finish
the works already well advanced for th©
improvement of the harbor of Coatzacoal
cos. at the Atlantic terminus of the road,
and to construct the harbor works at Sal
inas Crui. the Pacific terminus, which will
be built on the original plans, but which
the Mexican government has been so far
unable to execute.
The road Itself will be greatly improved
and put In the condition of a first-class
line. A line of ships plying between Sa
linas Crui and San Francisco will be put
on and deliver freight to tha many lines
plying in the Gulf of Mexico. A deter
mined effort wdll be made to secure the
freight and low-priced passenger traffic of
San Francisco. On the o'her side of the
1.-thmus it is expected to get the bulk of
the European fine freight, such us dry
goods, which now come hy steamship to
New Orleans and by rail to San Fran
That the syndicate means business is
shown by the fact that it intends to speni
Jarga amounts in harbor improvements.
<>n the gulf side the Mexican government
has constructed Jettbs simitar to those
at the mouth of the Mississippi, by
the entrance to the Coatxaeoalcos river is
Kraduaily deepened so as to admit the
largest ocean vessel#. Comparatively lit
tle' will be required to complete
works. The syndicate contract caiis for
the expenditure of $l5O,Wk». On the Pacific
s da the port of Salina Crui Is nothlnsr
but an open roadstead. There was an Iron
pier extending to twenty-seven feet of
water, but the storm in which the Colima
went down destroyed it. and all freight
has to be lichtered. often under unfavor
able conditions. The character of the
coast and bay is such that a commodious
harbor can be created artificially, but the
expense will be great. The syn lic.ara h*s
undertaken this expense, and aspects to
spend IJO.rtAO.fIW bo d breakwaters,
wharves, do'ks and warehouses. This
even more than the original design, ma la
when the railroad was completed, called
for. But the understanding is that th*
works to be created shalt make this tit*
harbor on the P-ac.flc coast outs! 1*
of San Francisco.
Just what concessions the syndicate fets
In return for these expenditures ts not
known, but it is not believed that they ars
unfavorable to the Mexican government,
which built and owns the road ar i h»»
been operating it since it* completion, be
cause President Dlax has steadfastly re
fused offers to lease it from various corpo
rations He *'as not given sufficient assur
ances that it would remain an independent
