Now York, May 18.

San Francisco, May 8. In the gray mist of the rainy morning, the Atlan tic fleet sailed out through the Golden Gate today on its way to visit various ports on Puget Sound. On the way up the coast the fleet will sail close in shore at certain points in order to give the people of northern California and Oregon an opportunity to view the long line of fighting vessels under way at sea. The ships will arrive at Puget Sound on Thursday, the Minnesota, Missouri, and Ohio dropping anchors af Port Los Angeles; the Illinois and Kearsarge anchoring at Port Town send the Connecticut, Louisiana, Kan sas, Vermont, Georgia, Virginia, New Jersey going to Bell Ingham; the Wis consin, Nebraska, and Kentucky going to Bremerton navy yard. Reassembling at Port Townsend on May 23rd, the fleet will proceed to Seattle that afternoon for a three days visit. Then the siips of one squadron will sail for San Francisco for dock ing, while the others will return to Bremerton to be docked there in prep aration for the resumption of the world cruise which starts from San Francisco on July 7. The anchors were lifted from San Francisco bay at 11:15 today and he fleet gftt underway for the first time under command of Rear Admiral Sperry. The ships Maine and .Ala bama, units of the long cruise from Hampton Roads were missing from the line today, their places being filled by the Nebraska, a ship of the Georgia class and Wisconsin, a sister ship dis placed the Alabama. The Maine and Alabama will set out for the east by the way of the Philippines and the Suez canal on June 15, sailing as a special sen-ice squadron. The sailing of the Atlantic fleet left only two ships of war anchored here, the Alabama and the cruiser South Dakota, the latter being busy with the grimy work of coaling after a success ful three days trial trip which ended on Saturday afternoon. The Maine is at Mare Island. The performance of the South Da kota steaming 22.36 knots for four hours under a forced draught and 20.36 knots for 2 hours, is attracting much attention In naval circles the big cruiser displacing 1,100 more tons of water than when she underwent the builders trial. Her total displacement was just short of 15.000 tons, more thon 1,000 tons weight being on board in excess of the planned displacement of cruisers of this type. CLtVFLAND STREET. CARS 5L0WN UP BY DYNAMITE Otherwise the Strike in the Forest City is An Orderly Disturbance. Cleveland, May 18. A Broadway street car was partially destroyed by a dynamite torpedo tonight, while twenty-five passengers were in the car, but no one was seriously Injured A panic followed and a mad rush for exits was made. A Madison street car was also damaged by the explo sion of powder on the track. The floor of the car was broken through and ohe woman was seriously Injured. Trivial rioting, a deadlock in arbi tration proposals, the car service largely restored and ,the refusal of the traction authorities to do anything until disorder and violence ceases, marked the third day of the strike of the men on the Municipal Traction lines. The company succeeded In operat ing all Its lines with but slightly im paired service considering the diffi culties. While no special efforts were made to send cars to the suburbs, in the city proper cars were run on an average schedule of nine minutes, which is but four minutes below nor mal. There was a marked decrease In disorder and violence reported until tonight's explosions. In several in stances car windows were broken by stones, cars were stopped and non union crews assaulted. o THE OUTWARD TIDE OE GOLD TO EUROPE There Are Signs That the Bankers Have no Apprehension for the Fu ture. New York, May 18. hTe steamer Kron Prlnz Wilhelm. which will sail I tomorrow .for Cherbourg and Bremen, will carry $8,350,000 In gold.. Of this, $4,500,000 will go to Germany and $3. 850,000 to France and is shipped by Ntw York banks. This is about as large a shipment of gold at. marine underwriters care to Insure by single vessel, although larg er amounts have been carried. The LAIWSON BUSINESS COLLEGE Phoenix, Arizona, All the gold will go in the form of bars, except $1,000,000, which will be in couble eagles for Berlin. Today's engagements virtually ex haust the assay office's supply of gold bars, so that bankers will be forced to send coin until the government is able to secure new supply of bars. The opinion prevailed that the American banks would ship considerably moro gold before the week ended. NEW DEMOCRATIC LEADER. Rises to the Surface in California Politics. Fresno, May 18.

GUNNESS Identified Yesterday Autopsy on Seven This Circumstance Indicates That in a Single Kight in September, 190G, the Murderess Added Three io Her Horrible Private Cemetery. La Porte, May 18. Autopsies held today on the remains of the seven unidentified bodies exhumed from Mrs. Gunness' private burial grounds were completed this evening and re vealed the fact that one of the seven was a female. This has aroused new Interest in the story of Kmil Green ing of Oklahoma, who was employed by Mrs. Gunness at the time Jennie Olsen disappeared and his story was to the effect that on a Friday, in September, a jnan and a woman came to the house and that night Mrs. Gunness asked Greening to sleep in the barn as the couple, who she said were a professor ond his wife from a Los Angeles college which Jennie was attending, would spend the night at the house and would require Greening's room. In the morning Greening saw nothing of Jennie nor the man nor woman, and was inform ed by Mrs. Gunness that they left on an early train, taking Jennie along. This body, which is now declared to be that of a woman, was taken from the same hole as that of Jennie Ol sen. In that hole were also tne bodies of Ole Budsberg and the re mains of a male person. All the bodies were dismembered, but the trunks of four were such that it was possible to identify the bodies of Jennie Olsen and Budsberg, and it was also possible by today's autopsies to determine that one of the other was a female. The theory now advanced is that Mrs. Gunness, on the same night that Greening slept in the barn may have murdered not only Jennie Olsen, but also the man and woman. To Coroner Mack, Sheriff Smutzer and Prosecu tor Smith this seems almost incon ceivable, but considered in the light of recent developments, nothing ap pears impossible for this arch-mur Is Your Grain Insured?

The stomachs of the four victims in this hole have been remov ed and their contents are to be anal yzed for poison. The disappearance of Jennie Olsen, as well as the cou ple, occurred in September 1906, while Budsberg was disposed of in May 1907.

The numbers of the watch corresponded with the numbers in Moe's possession. Lamphere said Mrs. Gunness gave him the watch.
