In the javelin throwing contest there were seventy entries, but fol lowing the example of the half dozen Americans who put th.-ir names down for the event, ar majority withdrew when they realized that they had no chance of beating Lemming and other cracks at this form of sport. While the throwing was going on the bicycle track was taken by the competitors in the 100 kilometers cvcle race which brought out a big field.

Thomas X Jordan, formerly comptroller of the Equitable Life, dropped dead of heart disease last night in the Wall street- station of the subway. It was during the course of the Armstrong committee insurance in vestigation that Jordan's name came strongly before the public. It was brought out that the then Comptrol ler Jordan had secured loans of $685,0(10 for himself and James W. Alexander, former president of the Equitalde, from the Mercantile Trust company, and that thse loans had been covered up on the looks of the company. This $6N3.(MiO came to be known as the "yellow dog" fund. A desire was expressed by the Armstrong committee that Jordan appear before the committee and ex plain the financial management of the Equitable, but the process serv ers were unable to locate him. His son was called before the committee and asked to tell where his father was. The young man said he did not know, and when further ques tioned said he did not know whether 'his father was dead or alive. It wan after the investigation had come to a close that Jordan put in an appearance. It was then learned that he had been to Europe. As a result of the disclosures made lief ore the Armstrong committee the grand jury found eighteen indictments for forgery and one for perjury against Jordan. Only recently Jordan ap peared before Justice Goff and plead ed not guilty to the indictments. Since his indictment Jordan re mained before the public eye as little as possible. He attended the meet ings of the directors of the compa nies In which he was interested, but kept in the background. Those who saw Jordan die say' he apenred to be in good health as he walked down the subway stairs. Jordun purchased a ticket and had walked about fifty feet from the ticket taker's window when he was seen to throw up his hands fall for ward on his face Justo is a Phoenix colt, the prop erty of Mrs. J. C. Adams. A year ago last fall she accompanied Mr. Adams, who went to Kentucky to look at another horse, and Mrs. Adams seeing this one at Paris, de termined to have him. He was brought to Phoenix, put Into training on the Adams farm and was chris tened Justo, Spanish for "just right." He is of royal blood, the son of Jay Bird, --the greatest of sires and the father of Allerton, the great trotter. Justo's dam was East more by Baron Wilkes. A sister, Alcesta, broke the record at Peoria, III., last week in 2:n-i. Like most Kentucky foals, Justo is a futurity colt. His dam was en tered in races to be trotted this year for stakes .or purses aggregating more than $100,000. He is in fact in all of the prominent futurities for three-year-olds this year. . Among them are the Kentucky Futurity for $14,000, which will start on Oct. 1. Others are: The Horse Review Futurity, $12,000; the Horse Breeders' Futurity. $10,000; the Ken tucky Stock Farm Futurity, $10,000. The Horse Review Futurity will be trotted at Columbus, C, in Septem ber. The total purse is $20,0no. of which the winner will earn $14,000. Justo has a record of 2: 14 and it is expected that before the close of the season he will reduce it to ':10 or better. The last half of his 2:14' mile was trotted in 1:05'4 and last week he made a quarter in :?,Vt, or at the rate of 2:05. This colt has never broken but twice and in all respects he has the manner isms of the old campaigner.

St BURNING OIL FIERY DELUGE Loss of Life and Property In Santa Maria Field Rivers ot Destructive Flume Swept Over the Adjacent Country. Santa Rarbara, Cal., July 15. Two men are dead and property valued at $100,000 was lost as the result of a fire in the Santa Maria oil fields at Orcutt, the principal pumping and shipping station of the Union uil com pany of the Standard Oil company. The fire is still raging but it is be lieved this evening that the town can be saved from the flames. Four huge tanks, holding 35.000 barrels, each have been consumed. In the explosion of one tank, two workmen employed in fighting the fire to keep it off the pumping station were overwhelmed with boiling, burning oiL One was instantly killed and his body was consumed by the flames. The other was dragged out, but crazed with pain and blinded, he broke from his rescuers and rushed madly back into the burning oil. The dead are: L. L. Stevens and Frank Curtis, both em ployed by the Union company The Fire started at midnight last night from crossed electric wires that ignited a shack near the tank. Soon the oil was boiling over and one ex plosion followed close upon another. The tank parted at the seams, throw ing the scalding oil many yards abrtut. For five hours the fire fighters kept the flames confined to the first tank, but soon the burning oil began flow ing over the other tanks uid four were on fire. The river of oil spread to the pump ing plant which has been damaged to the extent of $20,000. A tank car of the Pacific coast railroad caught fire, and the flames spread along the track. the ground being saturated with oil. until the ties and bridges were all burned out, and the rails warped and broken by intense heat. Soon the boiling oil entered the pipe lines and underground explosions followed. Many thousand barrels of the oil in the pipes were destroyed. Embank ments v now being thrown up to prevent a further spread. The fire will seriously interfere with shipments of oil from the Santa Maria field as it is estimated that it will take three months to reaplr the damage to the pipe lines and pumping station. GRAIN.

Calling down the maledictions of the most high upon the Roman Priesthood and shouting in Italian, "Long live Italy: long live the protestants." Giuseppe Alia, the murderer of Father Leo Heinrichs, was carried to the death trap at exactly 8:30 o'clock tonight. and paid the extreme penalty of his crime. Pernaps a more sensational and thrilling scene was never beheld by iny of the sixteen persons present. than the execution of this misguided Italian murderer, whose cries and screams were only hushed bv the lutoniatie springing of the mechan- l which forever silenced the tongue that cried for vengeance against those whom Alia considered the de stroyers of his home and happiness. At 4 o'clock this afternoon Warden Cleghorn of the state prison, through the interpreter, Antonio Sasso, a prison guard, read the death warrant to Alia. Contrary to expectations,! the prisoner exhibited no emotion, not even moving a muscle. When the reading was finished he said: "All right: I am ready to die now." At 6 o'clock supper was served ttie prisoner, it being the regular meal of the officers of the prison. Before eating he divided it into five por tions, saying one was for his wile, one for himself and one each for his three children. lie then ate with apparent comjiosure and relish. At 7 o'clock Guard Sasso came to him with, the information that within one hour the execution would take place. Alia again assented and said he was ready at any time. He further said he felt no sorrow what ever for having killed Father Leo. Ho was certain Father Leo was the man that he had been searching for for many months and claimed that he recognized the priest as his tor mentor by a scar on the side of his face. Alia said he had worked for Father Leo in Portugal and was sure he had killed the right man. Alia said he did not believe there was a God, for if so, he would not have Ix-en permitted to be in his present predicament. He said he found no fault with the law, but that the priest did wrong in breaking up his family. Shortly before 8:30 o'clock every thing being in readiness the warden's assistants approached Alia's cell and led the condemned man to the execu tion house where the black cap and noose were adjusted by a deputy warden. During the procedure Alia became frantic and rent the air with yells and curses against the priest hood, shouting, "Long live Italy; long live the protestants." Alia was placed upon the trap and Chaplain Blake of the orison ntt.r.l a short prayer. The dropping water ot ttie automatic mechanism released a great weight and exactly at 8:30 the body was jerked into the air. Unfortunately the neck was not broken, owing to. the slipping of a rope, and he died of strangulation. After nineteen minutes, Alia's laxly was cut down and he was pronounc ed dead. o ANGLO-RUSSIAN PLANS MACEDONIAN REFORMS Second game R. II.

TELEPHONE MAIN 194 An intimation That They Will Not Ul timately Be Approved by Germany. Berlin. July If,. The Suddeutsch Reichs Korrespondent, the usual ve hicle for Canceller von Buelow's semi official declarations, says today that Germany must await the receipt of the Russian note regarding Macedonia be fore taking under consideration the proposals for reforms in Macedonia, made by Great Britain. This is because the question of the constabulary is closely tied up with the matter of fi nancial administration. British-Russian suggestions will rest on a firmer broader basis after they have been submitted and adjusted to the views of Austria-Hungary. Germany will discuss the subject with statesmen of Austria-Hungary and Italy. As in the past. Germany's attitude will bo mostly that of an observer. Germany herself has problems in, Macedonia and for this reason never has been the first-to propose a course of action. General Nikyforoff, 'the Bulgarian diplomatic agent at Berlin affirmed to day that it is not necessary for th porte to ask the great powers to ex ercise pressure upon the Sofia govern ment to put a stop to the raiding bands as the relations today between Constantinople and Sofia are excel-" lent. Furthermore, he said, t'ae Bul garian government is observing a most, loyal attitude. The reason for the dis orders in Macedonia, he said, was the miserable administration of Tur key. It is generally feared that the Russian scheme for reforms when ex amined will prove to be nothing more than a palliative wRhout a fundamen tal value. ;Htiii!ni!if!iiiuiiuiniiiiniiiiiiinuii!i;K3 1 Buy a Home 1 I Now I is Avoid the Fall Rush We Have , Desirable Houses For Sale in Good Location j DWICBT B.
