Spring Wheat Needs Bain. Washington, D. C.?The latest -weekly crop report, prepared by the Weather Bureau follows: While still too cool in the districts east of the Rocky Mountains the temperature conditions of the week were somewhat more favorable in the central valleys and Southern States, but over portions of the lake region and middle Atlantic States and in New England it was colder than in the pre ceding week. Heavy rains in the two last-named districts interrupted farm work. Rain is now needed in the Dakotas, northern Minnesota, and in portions of the central and east Gulf districts. A general improvement in the condition of corn in the central valleys Is indicated especially over the western portions. In the lake region. New England and middle Atlantic States little or no improvement in this crop is noted. In all northern and central districts corn continues very late, but it is in good state of cultivation, except in the middle Atlantic States. Winter wheat harvest has made favorable progress and is now general in the central portions of the winter wheat belt, while disappointing yields, -?!_ ?_ a.\. -i.1 especially m me suuuiem (juiuous v*. Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. In the middle Atlantic States a general improvement is indicated. Spring wheat Is suffering for rain in North Dakota and portions of South Dakota, and Is affected by rust quite generally In Nebraska. In the two last-named States, however, the crop, as a rule, is doing well, and in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa continues in promising condition. The outlook for oats is less promising in the Dakotas, Nebraska, northern Minnesota, Missouri and southern Illinois. In Wisconsin, Kansas, uplands in Iowa, and in northern Illinois a good crop is promised. An Improvement is reported from Michigan the Ohio Valley and middle Atlantic States. Recent rains have caused a marked improvement In grass in New England and the middle Atlantic States, but the crop will be light in these districts, and also in the upper Ohio Valley. A good crop is being secured in the central valleys. In Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois. Indiana and Pennsylvania apples are unpromising, but the outlook continues favorable In Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan and Kentucky. The following statements have been telegraphed by State section directors of the Climate and Crop Service of the Weather Bureau: 1 New England?Cloudy, rainy weather; grass, grain and pastures benefited; potatoes uneven, but Improving; ap- ! pies uneven, growing well; corn poor.

The discovery was made after the convicts, who had attempted to cscape on the previous day, had been put through the sweating process. The explosives were concealed in the wall of one of the shops.

It la Said, Though, That Officers Goaded Them to Shoat "Long Live the King"?Gayety Id Belgrade. Belgrade, Servia.?King Peter, on bis arrival here, was received with great enthusiasm. The King, who wore the uniform of a Servian general and looked grave and almost nervous, descended from his car amid a fanfare of trumpets. He shook hands with Premier Avakumovitch, who ended a powerful speech of welcome with calling for cheers for King Peter, to which the crowd responded with enthusiasm. The King read his answer to the Premier's welcome in low tones, thanking him and promising to do his utmost for the good of the kingdom. Replying to an address of welcome delivered by M. Paulovitch, a member of the Communal Council, King Peter said tie would see to it tiiat ceigraue became a worthy centre of Servian life. The only foreign representative who participated in the reception were the Russian Minister. M. Tcliar.vkoff, and the Austrian .Minister, Herr Duinba. After the mass the Metropolitan made a 9hort address. He said God's guidance was evident in everything, and prayed God to grant King Peter the flower to rule wisely and well. A special prayer for the King was offered, and the choir chanted the old Gregorian "Kyrie Eleison" ("Lord Have Mercy.") The King approached the Metropolitan and kissed his hand as a tribute of the temporal to the spiritual power, and the congregation burst Into hearty cries of "Long live the King!" It was evident the new monarch was affected deeply by the ceremony, and his manner as he left the church conveyed the Impression that he "nad come to some momentous resolution during his self-communing before the altar. The King's procession moved at a brisk trot to the new palace. The King entered the state ballroom, where the mejnbers of the Skupshtina presented him with an address of welcome. In reply King Peter remarked that he could only repeat what he had said at the railroad station?that he would do his best to rule In accordance with the constitution. King Peter advanced to the Deputies and shook hands with each of them, but he did not utter a word. After luncheon the King held a conference with the Ministers and discussed the situation. He dined quietly and witnessed the torchlight procession in the evening. Tiioro nr*> no lack of nersons convers ant with the inner life of the Servian capital who say the apparently universal enthusiasm was a cleverly "stage managed" demonstration, and that many expressions of regret were uttered privately, and that except for the mounted officers who circulated among the crowds, commanding the people to cheer for King Peter, much of the outward signs of rejoicing would have been absent. FORCED RELEASE OF CORWELL Five Thoaund Delawareans Demanded Alleged Lyncher's Discharge. Wilmington, Del.?An angry mob of 5000 persons, threatening to storm the ?lty jail here, forced the authorities to release Arthur'Corwell, who was under arrest charged with the leadership of the crowd which burned at the stake George White, the negro, who brutally assaulted and killed Helen Bishop on June 15. The verdict of the Coroner's Jury, svhlch found that White died at the bands of persons unknown, made possible this release, and Just as soon is it was known that this verdict held ao person responsible for White's 3eath Attorney-General H. H. Ward caught at the straw and ordered Cornell's release on $5000 bail. It was immediately forthcoming, and Corwell was freed just as the mob began getting desperate. This speedy action undoubtedly averted bloodshed, for the mob was arrowing more threatening each minute. As it was, there was great disorder and the Police Department had all it could do to preserve order. Crowds of men and boys numbering from fifty to 200 each marched here and there singing and cheering, celebrating the release of Corwell and the popular verdict of the Coroner's Jury. The helief la crowinc here that no ane will ever be punished for the lynching of WTiite. Certain prominent citizens, although they deplore the oc-. currence, stand ready to raise a fund for the defense of.any one who should be prosecuted for the offense. Officials and leading citizens seem to be agreed that the best thing to be done in view of the volcanic condition Df the public mind is to let the matter drop. CHILDREN RIDE WITH DUMONT. Foong American Flrat to Go Up From the Pari* Flaj Ground. Paris, France.?Santos Dumont made another ascent in his steerable airship and visited a polo club during a children's fete. He offered to give the children a ride in his balloon, but the mothers refused their permission. A ten-year-old American boy, however, begged so hard that his mother consented to allow him to ascend in the balloon, and Santos Dumont took the boy for an aerial trip above the trees in the Bois de Boulogne. On their return several other children, encouraged by the young American's example, also claimed the privilege of a ri6i, and, with their mother's consent, Santos Dumont took two others in the balloon car and made anoth er ascent, returning safely to the polo grounds. FLEES FROM KENTUCKY FEUDISTS Leading Witness For the Prosecution Warned of Assassination. Lexington. Ky.?Captain B. J. Ewen, the leading witness in the trial of Jett and White for the murder of J. B.

MUST SPARENOGUILTY1AH President Orders t(ie Vigorous Prosecution of Postal Offenders. AN EX-CONGRESSMAN INDICTED Edmund H. Driggs. of Brooklyn, Pleads Not Guilty to Two of Four True Bill? -Attorney-General Annonncea the Api polntment of Special Coanael to Assist In the Prosecution?letter to Knox. Washington, D. C.?President Roosevelt has sent the following letter to Attorney-General Knox: "P. C. Knox. Attorney-General. "Sir?As you know the charges in connection with the Postoffice Department are now being investigated by Fourth Assistant Postmaster-General Bristow, who has had placed nt his disposal by the Postmaster-General every resource of the department, including the services of Sir. Robb, whom you detailed from the Department of Justice to the Postoffice Department Immediately after the removal of Mr. Tyner. As a result of this investigation a number of indictments have already been had, and it is probable that other indictments will hereafter be asked for. "There can be no greater offense against the Government than a breach ' of trust on the part of a public official or the dishonest management of his office, and, of course, every effort must be exerted to bring such offenders to punishment by the utmost rigor of the law. "The District Attorney's office of the District of Columbia has faithfully and zealously seconded the efforts of the Postofflce Department in this matter, but the amount of work In the office Is such as to make It difficult, without neglecting other importantpublicduties, to devote all the time necessary to the prosecution of these cases. I suggest, therefore, that if you cannot detail some of your present staff, you appoint special assistants in these postoffice cases, not oniy to tase up tne cases in which indictments have been found, or hereafter may be found, but to examine into all charges that have been made against officials in the postal service, with a view to the removal and prosecution of ail guilty men in the service, and the prosecution of guilty men, whether in the service or not, where the cases are not barred by the statute of limitations. Sincerely yours, "THEODORE ROOSEVELT." It was in consequence of these instructions that Attorney-General Knox designated Charles J. Bonaparte and Holmes Conrad as special counsel to assist in the postal prosecutions. Brooklyn. N. Y.?To the surprise of Edmund H.

IOWA DEMOCRATIC TICKET; Reaffirmation of Sllrer Plank of Platform of 1000 Defeated. Des Moines. Iowa.?The struggle for control of the Democratic State Convention ended In a victory for the antisilver wing. The Issue was the reaffirmation of the Kansas City platform. The Committee on Resolutions voted down the proposition seven to four, and the convention when its turn came stood by the committee voting 4G3 9-10 to 354 1-10 against adopting a minority report which recommended indorsement of the National platform of 1900. The convention nominated a full State ticket as follows: Governor. J. B. Sullivan. Creston; Lieutenant-Governor, D. B. Butler, Iowa City; Judge of Supreme Court, John R. Caldwell, Tama; Superintendent of Public Instruction, R. McCook, Howard; Railroad Commissioner. W. S. Porter, Harding. ' The fate of the silver forces was sealed at the district caucuses held in the forenoon, when the Committee on Resolutions was made up. Seven out of eleven districts chose gold men for the committee, the division standing: Against reaffirmation: First, Second, > Third, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth and Eleventh. For reaffirmation; Sixth, Seventh, Eighth and Tenth. The platform adopted demands tariff revision and the regulation of trusts and self-government for the peoples of the Philippine Islands and Porto Rico, calls for a thorough investigation of the Postoffice Department and a sufficient volume of money to meet all the requirements of the business of the country.

London.?The Moat House murder trial, which has created more sensation than any in recent years in England, ended with the passing of the death sentence at the Chelmsford Assizes on Samuel Herbert Dougal for the murder of Miss Camille Cecile Holland, a worn an with whom he lived at the Moat j House, near Saffron-TV alden, Essex. | The prisoner maintained an immovable i stoicism almost to the last stage of the j proceedings, listening apparently un- | moved to the accumulation of circum- j stantial evidence which was brought | against him. The evidence presented was simply a repetition of the testimony at the inquest, after the finding of the body of Miss Holland in a ditch near the moat four years after her mysterious disappearance. To the surprise of everyone, counsel for the defense announced that he would not call any witnesses, not even Dougal, who had previously asserted that he intended to testify in his own behalf. His counsel, in His address, dwelt upon the alleged incoilcluslveness of the airtdonM hilt ?-Vio lnrTT a f fpp an flhsPTlfP - of fifty-five minutes, brought in a verdict of guilty, and the Judge, assuming the black cap, sentenced the prisoner to death by hanging without commenting on the verdict. Dougal, who was pale, remained silent when asked if he had anything to say. Miss Holland was the aged and wealthy owner of Moat House, SaffronWalden, Essex. About four years ago Dougal, who was supposed to be her husband, appeared upon the scene accompanied by a woman whom he Introduced as his sister, but who afterward proved to be his wife. Shortly afterward Miss Holland disappeared. Dougal was subsequently arrested for cashing a check purporting to have been signed by Miss Holland. This created suspicion, and a search was made for Miss Holland's body. It was found last April in a ditch on the grounds. A bullet wound in the head showed the cause of death. DUMONT SAILS OVER PARIS. Goes to Breakfast In,Airship No. 9 and Return* to Longchamp. Paris, France.?Santos-Dumont made his first appearance in airship "No. 9" over the centre of Paris. He maneuvred over the Arc de Triomphe and descended at his house in the Champs Elvsee. The aeronaut started at 4.30 a. m. from Longchamp, going in the direction of the Place de l'Etoile, followed by many cyclists. He executed skilful maneuvres over the Placedel'Etoile, made a tour of the Arc de Triomphe, and, turning down the Champs Elysee, brought his airship down at the door of his house, No. 114, where he breakfasted. In the meanwhile bystanders and mechanics held down the airship, which was surrounded by a curious crowd for half an hour. Santos-Dumont reappeared, smoking a cigarette. In order to avoid the trees the airship was towed to the centre of the Champs Elysee. where it rose and returned to Longchamp. There was little wind. The ship maintained an altitude of about 100 feet and answered its helm perfectly. "No. 9" is the smallest airship SantosDumont has constructed. It measures 1 about 8300 cubic feet, has a three-horse power engine and resembles an elongated egg. SERVIAN CONSPIRATORS PROMOTED King Peter Rewards Those TVho Placed Him on -.lie Throne.
