Dr. Arrehenius, who won the Nobel prize in chemistry in 1903 because of his oleetrolitio disassociate theory, is re garded as the world's greatest cosmog onist. Dr. Arrehenius declared that two causes are operating to bring about the extinction of life on the earth. Loss in heat generated by the sun is one of the dangers that threatens, while diminu tion of carbonic acid in the atmosphere is the other menace. However, Dr. Arrehenius explained that the sun will probably continue to give out the same amount of heat for at least a billion more yeara. not I a So for at so hue up is Cotton Paper Maker Held.

Porfirio Diaz Sun day issued a manifesto to the people of Mexico declaring his intention to resign the presidency as soon as peace is re stored. In this manner the president has virtually acceded to the demand of Francisco I. Madero, Jr., the rebel leader, that he make announcement of such in tention. As to when peace it actually restored Gen. Diaz reserves the right to be the judge. In the words of the manifesto, it will be "when, according to the dictates of my conscience, I am sure that my resignation will not be followed by an archy." The president declared that his deter mination liot td relinquish the presi dency at this time was not due to vanity love of power, because, as he pointed »ut, power at this time had no attraction, accompanied as it is by tremendous re sponsibilities and worries. Ue said he was prompted solely by a desire to con serve the best interests of his country. The president made it clear that he does, not propose to abandon the presi dency while his country is at war and that he would not do so at any time under compulsion. was or j LEGISLATURE FAILS TO ELECT to -Deadlock Took Ninety-Two Ballot!

New York.—Journalism must return to Christ and the Ten Commandments, if the daily newspaper would remedy its defects, according to Bishop McFaul.

In accepting the medal, Mr. Carnegie told if his feelings in being informed of the honor conferred upon him by the Pan-American conference at Buenoe Ayres. "Truly, my friends," he said, "I never before felt so completely overwhelmed and crushed as it dawned upon me that the honor which the conference had voted to coufer was without parallel, 160,000, 000 of people, forming twenty-one sover eign nations, bestowing upqn poor me an honor the like of which hail neyer be fore been bestowed upon a human be ing." ous bill, the was In offering thanks to the nations, through their diplomats present, for the honor bestowed upon him, Mr. Carnegie asked them to accompany the expres sion with, the ardent wish on his part that prompt action should be taken by the twenty-one republics to establish a reign of pence, by adopting President Taft'B policy of submitting all disputes to arbitration. WORKMEN SHARE IN PROFITS Geo. W. Perkins Speaks for Betterment of Workingmen. New York.—George W. Perkins, form erly partner of J. P. Morgan, addressed the People's Institute in Jersey City "Get Together Times" Sunday. A large audience was present to learn what Mr. Perkins had to advance in the way of suggestions for the betterment of the country and the betterment of the work ingman. Mr. Perkins said he believed in the system whereby the workman chared in the profits made hy capital.

Taft Has Gone the Limit—Troops Will Make Attempt to Keep Americans From Danger Zone. C? takes Washington.—Unless congress a hand in the situation, the United States forces oil the Mexican border are powerless to protect Americans within range of bullets falling in and around £1 Paso from Mexican rides. ''All we .can do," said Maj.-Geu. Wood, chief of staff of the army, "is to keep our people out of the danger zone as far os possible and protest to the bel ligerents against firing in our direction. Without authority from congress the army cannot cross the border, no matter what happens." Administration officials are watching the constantly changing situation with deep and anxious interest. News that hostilities had been resumed was re ceived at the W T hite House with obvious surprise and disappopintment. The nouncement that President Diaz would resign upon the restoration of peaco followed immediately by the recall of the revolutionist vanguard on a march for the City of Mexico had given ground for hope that the worst was over and peace was at last in sight. The president's attitude as to inter vsntion is just what it w T as after the troops were sent to Texas. Without ac tion of congress there can be no inter vention. Though the state department received practically no advices, the war depart ment is keeping in close touch with El Paso through the army officers. However, nothing can be added to the introductions which were given when it became known that another battle was imminent. The only orders were that Americans were to be kept as far as possible away frem the firing line.

Washington.—Nine hours of continu ous pounding at the hands of the Re publican minority of the house of repre sentatives failed to make a single change in the first Democratic tariff bill, that placing on the free list agri cultural implements, meats and many other articles. The bill passed the house Monday by a vote of 236 to 109, the Democrats voting solidly and mus tering twenty-four Republicans with them. Thia came after the Democrats hail voted down or ruled out of order more than 100 amendments and had demon strated again that the Democratic ma jority was a compact and smoothly working machine for the enactment of legislation. Minority Leader Mann threw amend ment after amendment into the debate, ranging all the way from free rice to free lead and ,pig iron, but those that were not ruled out of order were voted down by an almost solid Democratic vote. by a DRAGGED AT ROPE'S END Spanish Mill Manager Narrowly Escapes Death. Mexico City.—Dragged through the streets of the little town of Mitepec, Puebla, at the end of a lariat tied to the saddle-horn of an iusurrecto, Faus tino Diaz Caneja, a Spaniard, escaped death by the merest chance. Risking his life, a workman in the employ of Caneja ran forward before a band of rebels and cut the lariat. The injured man was taken to Puebla for treat ment. Caneja is the manager of a textile mill at Metepec. A band of some hun dred rebels appeared at the mills and demanded money. He gave them $1,500, all there was in the safe at the time. The insurrectos rode on, but later in the afternoon another band attempted to negotiate a forced loan. Angered at his reply that there was no money, they decided to drag Caneja to death at the end of a lariat. A way the the in out peo of Collided With Horse. New Orleans.—Theodore M.
