SHlilffl 'S LATEST TO T Republican A. P. Leased Wire CHICAGO. May 15 "The city with the ornamental front door" is the newest sobriquet pinned on Chicago. It dates largely from the ' erection athwart the rew Michigan boulevard "link" bridge, of a great, ornamental white office building of 3a stories nicknamed because of its eccentric lines and unequal-angled appearance the "shimmy building. The "shimmy" building is the key stone in the arch of the city's oraa mental front door. Visible for man miles, both from the harbor and from the north, south and west, it marks the convergance of the Chicago river, the water gateway to Chicago where Fort Dearborn once stood, and the famous boulevard that now connects the north and south sides of the city. Fifty thousand automobiles, it is conservatively estimated, pass the "shimmy" building daily. It is not to be wondered, then, that the plans of the Chicago plan commission un dertake to nake the spot, favorored by traffic of land and water, the mu nicipal bcauly spot of the world. Km bellishment of the bridgeheads, with treatment in historical style, is the first step authorized in this develop ' ment. Beaut.fioation ot the surround I ing propertv and of the river front itself will follow. Silver Boom Starts In Tonopah, Nevada TOXOi'AU, Nev.. May 15.

Conservatives Will Test Strength Against Radi cals In Chamber Of Dep utiesjs Belief Republican A. P. Leased Wire MEXICO CITY, May 15. The Mo relia tragedy, in which a sc ire of per"a lut their lives in a conflict between 0,itr;.s, poli?.j i radi cals, and inv;j:on of t!io legislative halls here ly protesting r.idi. a' have set the stae for a contest o strength in the chamber of deputies between the Partido Liberal constitu tionalists, dominant political party, which claims President Obregon as its leader, and the radicals, which for the moment are united. Stormy sessions are predicted this week and the battle is scheduled to start tomorrow when the Partidos will seek a majority vote for their resolutions adopted in secret caucus last night calling for the resignations of Celestino Gasca, governor of the federal district, Luis Morones, gov ernment purchasing agent, and Col onel Raygadas, inspector general of police. The Partidos have also decided to request the grand, jury to order an Investigation of Felipe Ctirrillo and Antonio Diaz Soto y Gama. radical deputies, .who are alleged to have-i been instigators of the invasion on rriday of the chamber by a group carrying the red flag of communism, For the moment the Partidos, hereto fore recognized as extremely liberal, are considered conservatives and to their ranks have come Catholics and numerous Independents, comprising, according to the Partidos, a majority. Opposed are the several radical groups. The Partidos. after caucusing last night, asserted they had the power to oust Gasco, Morones and Rayga das. Gasca, as the governor of the federal district, is an avowed radical. Morones is the leader of labor feder ation and Raygadas is described' as the tool of both." The Morelia incident of Thursday, in which Isaac Arriaga, head of a commission in Michoachan. was one of the victims, has brought to a cli max the ill-feeling apparent since the agrarian bill was introduced ten days ago. . The radical group which ' in vaded the . chamber Friday asserted It came as a protest against Arriagu's death but when the tribune was for cibly occupied the speakers Indulged in general invectives against all who opposed this program. There were frequent vivas" for Bolshevism. While the radicals were still in the chamber the Partido lead ers consulted President Obregon who. however, in general statements to the press has not indicated that he wishes to clash personally with his adversaries. The president was in clined to believe that the clash in the streets of Morelia was due to the re fusal of the Catholics to disperse af ter being ordered to do so by the police. Meanwhile, advices from Morelia show that the city is still under vir tual martial law but that the inter ment of the victims had proceeded without incident. Resentment by the Catholics is taking the form of avowed intention to force the resig nation of the governor of Michiocan.

SPOTS ON UN U AURORA BOREALiS-SAY Electrical Disturbance Will Pass Within 48 Hours r Effects Still Noted In East Republican A. P. Leaied'wireJ WASHINGTON, May 15. Inter ruption of telegraphic communica tions by electrical influences, if due to the presence of spots on the sun, will pass away within 48 hours in the belief of naval observatory officials. The present spot or group of spots, estimated by naval observatory of ficials at 94,000 miles in length and 21,000 in latitude, was nearest the earth las night and today, through rotation - of the sun was moving away. These officials said that leaving out of consideration the decreasing effect of the spots on electrical cur rents on the earth through the usual breaking up of the spots, the regular rotation of the sun would soon carry the spots so far from earth as to make their influence negligible. The theory that the aurora borealis or northern lights result from sun spots was advanced by Dr. jl a. Bra- snear. late Pittsburg astronomer. The theory has never' been definitely accepted, navaly observatory officials asserted, but the fact that spots on the sun usually are accompanied by electrical disturbance has resulted In almost general acceptance of the theory . The spots now present on the sun and which w ere visible to the naked eye today with a smoked glass, were first photographed at the naval ob servatory last Monday. The spots, according to Dr. G. H. Peters, were about one and a half to two days old. The following day the photo graphs showed the spots to be much agitated, the gazeous vapors of which they are composed resembling a cyclonic storm. Dr. Peters said. Yes terday's photograph, taken about noon, showed the spots to be near the solar meridian. Naval observatory officials said the presence of such a large group of spots at this time was most unusual. Disturbance Continues NEW YORK. May 15. Electrical influences exerted by the aurora borealis or northern lights believed to be caused by an. unusually large sun spot or spots continued today to play havoc with telegraph traffic throughout the United States. Beginning Friday night wire chiefs reported this natural phenomenon had injected extra voltage into their wires "causing earth currents" and interrupting traffic. The same con ditions continued throughout Satur day and. became increasingly intense Saturday night, causing one of the severest disturbances gnown in 30 years. For more than an hour before mid night Saturday, nearly every tele graph wire leading from New York and Chicago was out of condition. Ocean cables also were slightly af fected. Curiously, however, the dis turbance seemed to strengthen wire less signals. Intensity of the dis turbance was lessened today. Border Cities See Aurora SAN FRANCISCO, May 15. Last night's aurora borealis was visible as far south as the Mexican border, said reports today from Boulevarde, San Diego county. The display was seen at San Bernardino and reports over railroad wires said it was especially brilliant over the Mohave desert. There is no record of an aurora ever having been seen in that section be fore. 1 o Republican A. P. Leased Wire LONDON.
