Smashes Machine,
Auto Passenger Car With Eleven Per
sons Aboard Caught in a Deep Cnt
?fcy. a Southern Passenger Flyer.
Birmingham, Ala., Special.-Two
were killed outright, three fatally in
jured^and two others may die as the
result of an accident, in which a
Southern Railway passenger train
near Westlake crashed into a large
automobile below Bessemer Sunday
The automobile maintains a regular
passenger schedule between Bessemer
and Westlake and it was carrying
eleven passengers Sunday to the lake
Sunday afternoon. The machine was
struck by the fast passenger train
shortly after. 4 0 'clock and was almost
?omple?ely demolished. '
There is a steep grade leading
down to the Southern tracks just be
fore Westlake is reached and' as the
highway is in a cut it was impossible
for the chauffeur to see the train or
.for the engineer to see the automo
bile. Those of the automobile pas
>esnger5 who escaped with injuries
'state that the locomotive whistle wa3
not blown for the crossing.'
The front wheels of the large au
tomobile had just run on to the rail
road tracks when the engine struck
it. .The passenger train was running
at a high rate of speed and plough
ed its way through the forward end
of the machine.,
As it was but one and one-half
miles from Bessemer ambulance? and
physicians were quickly summoned
from that city. The injured vere
all taken to the Robinson hospital in
Bessemer. /
"Down With the Pope."
'.San Sebastian, By Cable.-The gov
ernment's rigorous measures and the
formal renunciation by the clerical
junta of the threatened demonstra
tion ? in this city insured comparative
tranquility Sunday and a largely at
tended bull fight was the chief in
cident of the day. From daybreak
the streets were patrolled by cavalry,
infantry and gendarmes, while heavy
bodies of troops were held in readi
ness in the barracks at Miramar
palace, where the queen mother and
the royal children are in residence.
The gravest incident occurred last
evening when groups of clericals as
sembled shouting "Death to Spain!
Lom? live the Pepe!" Thousands of
indignant people rushed towards the
manifestants and only the personal,
intervention, of the Governor at the
head of a platoon of p?lice prevented
fi.n attack." Nearly one hundred and
?fifty arrests were made.
Many 1 amusing scenes were- wit
nessed. Priests leading trudging
hands of. peasants took to th?:r heels
when they found tho city in the pos
session of the military. The peasants,
?( ail their courage gone, were dis
v armed and easily persuaded to re
turn to their homes. In some cases
the soldiers were compelled to supply,
with food the poor people who had
come into the city to rail at the gov
The local authorities are convinced
that the clerical demonstration
masked a ?arlist plot. Clericals are
extremely indignant at the govern
ment's repressive measures.

Boycott Proclaimed Against Ameri
can Goods by Chinamen.
Canton, China, By Cable.-A boy
! eott of American goods and mer
I chants, on similar lines to the onb
; which several years ago caused mil
I lions of dollars' damage to American
trade in China, has been proclaimed
here in response io complaints of the
treatment of Chinese in America.
The specific cause of complaint this
time is ihe objection of the Chinese
of San Francisco to the detention
sheds on Angle Island in San Fran
cisco Bay. They have been endeav
oring for some time to have them re
moved to San Francisco proper in
order to secure better treatment for
arriving Chinese.
The boycott is proclaimed by the
Chinese self-government society of
Canton, an organisation conducting
a propaganda of "China for the
Chinese," and for governmental> re
form to which Chinese in San Fran
cisco ?appealed by letter.
An appeal has been issued to
Chinese abroad asking them to co
operate in the -boycott.
?Virginia Mayor Killed Himself.
Roanoke, Va., Special.-A special
from Ridgeway, Va., says Detective
Joseph Funk of the Baldwin Detec
tive Agency of Roanoke, who has
been investigating the dynamite explo
sion which caused the death of May
or A. H. Bousaian of Ridgeway on
the night of Sunday, July 24, is satis
fied that he-has solved the mystery.
His inquiries have convinced him that
the case was a peculiarly horrible one
of self-destruction. He has so re
ported lo the town council of Ridge
way and the report has been accept
ed officially and is universally be
3i>ved to be correct even by Bous
man's closest friends.

Bottom'Seems to Have Dropped Out
Notwithstanding Boosting Efforts
of Manufacturers.
New York, Special.-Indications
point to the bottom having fallen out
of the automobile business. The
manufacturers, it is reported in trade
circles, are making strenuous efforts
to keep up a show of continued pros
perity, but it is also said that they are
not selling their product, but are stor
ing machines throughout the country
at their various agencies to, prevent
the public realizing the tnie condi
tions of the market.
Several large concerna are laying
off men and giving all sortii of rea

or three of the largest factories re
cently closed entirely, 'ostensibly for
the purpose of taking inventory, but
the workmen were not given any d?fi
hite time at which to again-report for
work, and it is not expected; that
these factories will again be in oper
ation this year.
A well-known automobile agent of
this city said Friday that all cars
would undoubtedly be, selling at from
25 per'cent,to 50 per cent less than
present list prices within the next
two or three months. Ha added:
"The trouble with the automobile
business is that the farmers and peo
ple of the smaller cities and towns
have not taken as kindly to the idea
as was anticipated. The farmers find
.that the. cost of keeping them in re
pair and operation is more than the
cost of keeping horses to perform the
same work, and while there was, for
a time, a tendency among the farmers
to invest in the machines, the demand
for cars from this class of buyers has
practically stopped, and I venture to
say we will not again sell to the farm
ers to any extent until prices are ma
terially reduced. "
Ohio Lawyer Assassinated.
Cleveland, 0., Special.-A body
identified as that of William L.
Rice, one of the wealthiest and most
conspicuous attorneys in Cleveland,
was found in the street near the Rice
mansion on Euclid Heights shortly
after midnight Friday. There were
two bullet wounds in the head and
the right hand was shot off. A hasty
police examination led to a belief-that
he had been murdered.
Congress for Deaf Mutes.
Washington, Special.-A congress
of deaf-mutes which is soon to be held
in Kansas City has invited most of
the diplomatic representatives of for
eign governments in-Washington to
address them.
Among the invitations received was
one at the Chinese Lesration here. It
is said in diplomatic circles that
China would probably not be repre
sented, as the legation was finding it
.difficult to secure an. interpreter who
could turn Chinese into signs which
the congress mhrht understand.
Tramps Tin Big Battle.
Cumberland, Md., Special.-Ar.
abandoned coal mine on the outskirts
of Fairmont was the scene of a fierce
battle between two factions of a
score or more of tramps, who have

as James Hines and says he comes
from Charleston, W. Va., died ak the
Miners' Hospital, and it is believed
another tramp, "Jim" Sullivan, was

Destructive Forest Fires in Northwest.
Request has been made for troops
to protect national forests in Mon

to assist in extinguishing the flames.
The most serious situation exists in
Montana and Idaho. The forest ser

officials in these States where the
flames have swept over nearly 200,000
I acres, entailing losses which it is
known already have reached nearly
$500,000 and which m.iy amount to
millions when tho Idama?re can be
more clearly estimated. \
