ON RAISING RA1ES Some Officials Believe Whatever the Necessities the Time Is Not Now. New Tork, July 1C. The conference of the railroad presidents extended through the long morning and af ternoon sessions today in the offices of the trunk line association here on the subject of the proposed raising of freight rates. ( Considerable divergence of opinion appeared in the discussion as to the policy of raising the schedule of rates at the present time, owing to the dullness of trade and the opposition already displayed on the part of shippers to the proosed Increase. On the one hand it was argued that the necessities of the railroads were urgent. On the other hand the effect of raising the rates before any mark ed Improvement of general freight traffic set in may be to retard the flow of rising business expected with the fall. It is reported that the -officers of the Pennsylvania who had hitherto advocated an early raising of the scheduled rates had now changed their opinion in tNe matter together with the Iickawanna, Read ing and Lehigh Valley and were op posed to an immediate advance. This attitude was decidedly at variance with the policy advocated by llarri man and the lines allied with him. The matter of a reduction of wages was not discussed by the conference. At the close of the conference the statement was given out that no definite conclusion had been reached. o SHOOK THt COUNTRY FOR MiltS AROUND A Powder Magazine Explosion by Which Nine Were Killed. Tacoma, Wash., JuV 16. A special to the Ledger from Cleelum. Wash ington, says: . The explosion of a pow der magazine of the Northwestern Improvement company near here at 5 o'clock this afternoon killed at least nine persons and seriously Injured a number of others. The dead are: tleorge Mead, manager of the Improve ment company store; Cilford McDon ald, a clerk in the store; Andy Gnu, a clerk in the store; Mrs. Peter ilof- fatt, -wife of a brickmaker; the Infant child of Moffatt; Joe Rossi, a miner; Joe Pogriappi. a miner, and two min ers, names unknown. Shortly before 5 o'clock Manager Mend and the clerks of the store went to the powder house to assist, in un loading a carload of powder. How the accident happened is not known. The magazine w as three-tpiai ters of a mile from the center of the town and the explosion shook the town like an earthquake. The windows for a mile around were shattered anil rocks and brick from the powder house were thrown hundreds of feet. Mrs. Peter Moffatt, the wife of a brickmaker, was living in a tent near the magazine with her two children. The tent was blown to pieces and Mrs. Moffntt's body was not yet been found. Muffled cries were heard soon, after the explosion but they died down. Fragments of bodies were scattered for half a mile from the magazine. Among the Injured were Michael Evans, an electrician, struck on the head by a flying brick and will probably die; Mike Zuall, a laborer, hurt seriously; Mrs. Robert Simpson, injured in the wreck of her home, not fatul; second little daughter of Mrs. Moffat, seriously hurt. The three men working in the storehouse.

Three Italians, not far from the powder house, were killed instantly. Rossis' she was blown off and In it was found $ir0 in money. The windows of a bar not far from the scene of the disaster were broken Into small bits and the casings and bar fixtures were destroyed. Several men were hurt.

A BETTER DAY FOR AMERICA In Spite of the Miserable English Weather -Two Systems of Counting to Determine the Olyin lie Championship. London, July 10. This was Amer ica's day in the Olympic sports at the stadium, both big events which reach ed their finals, throwing the discus, free style, and putting the shot, being carried off by Martin J. Sheridan, of the Irish American A. C. and Ralph Rose of the Olympic A. C. of San Francisco, respectively. The United Kingdom captured the third final, the 400 meters swimming event, in which II. Taylor added a score to his country by beating Kenurepaire, the Australian crack, and Schcff of Austria. The final was also reached in the 1000 meter cycle race, but this proved such a fiasco through the attempts of tlie four participants, Schilles of France; Jones, Kingsburg and Johnson of England to force each other to make the pace that the judges declar ed the event off, it not being finished within the time limit. Italy got her first gold medal today in the team gymnastic competition, receiving the greatest number of points against a great array of competitors. This system awards one point to each winner, ignoring seconds and thirds and Includes all sports carried out under the auspices of the associa tion whether within the stadium or outside of it. Following th.s method of counting points, the countries will bi placed in this order: The United Kingdom 21, the United States S. Sweden 3. Norway 2. Canada. France, Ee'gium and Italy, one each. The United Kingdom's poinfr, ae rerdins; to th:. computation is mado up as follows: Men's doubles and !n g'e, aud ladies' singles in both the lawn tenn:3 and covered court tennis competitions: pole competition: sin gles and doubles racquets; individual rifle competition: individual miniature rifle competition at disappearing tar gets; tain and individual competi tions: miniature rifles at ordinary targets; t-am competition at clay birds, and the following wins in the Kt.nlium: the 300 meter walk; the L'tl kilometer cycle race: the three mile team race; the inm yards cycle race, and the 400 meter swim. The l'nited States score is made up of the fol lowing wins: rifle team compe tition; revolver competition; individual dou ble shoot at running deer; J. OoiiM's victory in the court tenuis competi tion; throwing the hummer: the 1"00 meters flat race; throwing the discu. and putting the weight. The Swedish points are scored by wins at team and individual competitions at running deer and throwing the javelin. Nor way won the team and individual rifle shooting at 300 meters. Canada won the individual competition ;lt flay birds; France the 200 kilometers tandem race; Belgium ttte individual revolver competition and Italy the team gymnastic competition.

GERARD-JONES before the trophy for the champion ship in all sports can be awarded. If this method of counting points is ad mitted by the British Olympic associa tion, England will win the trophy, for there are few countries taking part in these sports outside the stadium. The American athletic team, which is devoting Its attention to events with in the stadium however, is not accept ing this interpretation. James E. Sul livan, president of the A. A. U., and United States commissioner to the Ohmpie games, said to the Associated Press tonight: "We came here as we went to Paris and Athens, with a field team, making a fight for field events, and caring nothing for the other sports. We asked that the championship tro phy be put up for field sports separ ately, but our request was not acted on. So we simply take the score in field events, counting first, five points; second, three points, and third, one point, and figure out the American score on this basis." Under the American system, the score as it stands tonight is: American, throwing the lxynmer 8, team race 3, discus 9, putting the shot C, the 1500 meter race 5; total 31. The United Kingdom, team race 5, putting the shot 3, the 1500 meter race 4, the 300 meter walk 8; to tal L'0. Sweden G, Greece 3, Canada 1, Australia 1, Norway 1. Commissioner Sullivan received a reply to a letter which he sent to IJord Iiesborough, chairman of the British Olympic Association, protest ing against certain rules governing the contests, anil referring to other matters in connection with the games. In reply Lord Desborough opens with an apology to the Americans for the failure te use a single American flag in the decoration of the stadium on the opening day. The omission to do so, he says, has since been reme died. He then takes up the com plaint of Americans regarding the conduct of the sport?. The question of the pole vault is referred to tha A. A. A., which" decided not to allow the Americans to dig a hole for the! p ile, but acctded to their request to have the pits fiLcd with sand 'or landing on. W'it'.i r gard to the question of heat ui.vings. Lord Desborough pointed out in his letter that the drawing .h it had already been made in the various heats could not be altered, elthoug'n this hnd not been asked for. The Athletic Association, he said, had Invited the . American committee to have a man in the arena during the progress of the cents in which America was interested, and llelpin, the American manager, had been p pointed to that position. After reading Lord Desborough's letter, Sullivan replied that if the drawings were already made the Americans would like to see them be fore the day on which the events we-re to be contested, .1 urivilege which has heretofore not been ac ce ireled. In addition to the discus throwing, weight putting, the 400 meter swim and the 100 meter cycle race, a number of prelimiuiiries in other events were pulled off today. These included the second heat of the 100 kilometers cycle race, two heats of the ten mile walk, two heats of the second round of the 200 meters breast stroke swim, the fifth heat of fancy diving, in which H. C. Orote of the Missouri A. C. got second: seven heats of the 100 meter back stroke swimming, in which A. M. C.oessling of the Missouri A. C. the only Amer ican entered, was beaten in the sixth heat. It was cold all day, the rain falling heavily from early morning until af ter the last event had been decided. Competitors and officials who had to be in the field were dripping with water all day long and tne wnoie scene- was about as cheerless as could (Continued on page 2.)

Canon City. July 16. A signed statement given last Sunday by Ouise-ppe Alia,, who was hangeel last night, to Antone Sassoe, an Italian guard at the prison, makes it appear that Father Leo was the victim of mistaken identity. In the statement Alia declared that the priest whom he killed was an Italian priest for whom he worked five years in Por tugal and who. he declared, had dis hohorecl his wife. He said he recog nised Father Jeo ! as the priest when he first saw him in St. Elizabeth's church. He visited the church sev- eral times before shooting him, to assure himself that he had made no mistake. As Father Leo had never lieen in either Portugal or Italy, there is believed to be nej doubt that Alia's identification of him was a delusion. 2U!iinii!itiiU!iiiiiiii!iiiiniiuuiiiiuiiin 1 Buy a Home I Now I Avoid the Fall Rush , We Have Desirable Houses For Sale in Good Location if DWIGDT B.
