Danville, 111., April 27. Several persons were injured and property is damaged to the amount of several thousand dollars when eight bulls and one female elephant of the Ringling show stampeded here today. As the animals were being unloaded one of the bulls made a break for liberty, bowling over the keeper and escaping. He was followed by several others. .Later, while the entire force were en gaged in the unusual sport of hunting elephants in automobiles, the female escaped. For several hours the elephants were at large, despite the fact that the entire force of police reserves was called into action and gave chase. After escaping, the elephants moved Jor some time in a bunch, then separ ated. They stopped for nothing ex cept brick and stone buildings, and small frame structures, coal sheds, fences and trees in their path were pushed aside, turned over and up rooted. At the home of Wm. Miller, three elephants were found there was not. sufficient room, for them* td pass be tween the summer kitchen and the residence, so they pushed the kitchen aside, badly frightening the persons therein. At the nome of Joseph Peebles, af ter overturning a shed and killing a horse, one of the animals attacked the man, hurling him against the side of his residence. He is now in a critical condition. Barney O'Neil, liveryman, was thrown from his wagon when the herd dashed in front of his team. F. Krabbe, one of the keepers, who was helping to cage three of the bulls after their capture, was hurled against the side of a nearby barn and badly injured. Other persons were slight ly injured by frightened horses. Late this evening it was estimated that more than one hundred homes were visited by the elephants and the damage probably will aggregate $10,000. Truck gardens, orchards and many buildings were ruined in the out skirts of the city by the elephants, while shade trees and residences were said to be greatly damaged. Late this evening one elephant was still at large two or three miles north of the city. PAULHAN WINS W O O PRIZE London, April 28.—Louis Paulhan, the French aviator, has won the 160,000 prize donated by Lord North cliffe for the first aeroplane flight from London to Manchester, a dis tance of 186 miles. The winning of the prize involved one of the most sensational contests that has ever been seen in Great Britain. It was a race between Graham White, the English aviator, and Paulhan., White a few days ago attempted the trip, but was compelled to descend at Litchfield, after covering 115 miles. Paulhan then appeared on the scene and the two aviators made hasty preparations for the flight, each striving to be first at the start. Paulhan stole a march on the Eng lishman, asending from Hendon at 5:20 a. m. yesterday. White, who was sleeping at the time, was apprised of this act, and made a quick start from Park Royal at 6:30 p. m. Paulhan, flying high and fast, cov ered 117 miles before he landed, making that distance in two hours and fifty minutes. He descended at Litchfield at 8:10 m. and re-ascend ed at 4:09 a. m. to complete the journey. White succeeded in reaching Reade, a distance of about 60 miles, descending on account of darkness at 7:55 p. m. He managed to over come some of the handicap by mak ing a gain on the long journey to Manchester at 2:50 a. m. He land ed, however, at Polesworth, which is about 60 miles from Manchester. 4 4 .« 4. 4 22 STORY BUILDING TO BE 1 TORN DOWN TO MAKE ROOM FOR ONE 42 «8 STORIES HIGH. •mm** New York, April 27.—"That's a nice, neat looking building," remark ed a stranger as he gazed at the Gal lenger building, 1 Nassau street, cor ner of Wall street. "Yes," replied the guide, "but on May 1 a thousand workmen will be swarming over the twenty-two 'stories, and in record breaking time what you call a nice building will be torn down." It may sound foolish for an owner to destroy a twenty-two story building just be cause it is not big enough, but such is the case in the Gillenger building. New York wants a bigger building— in fact. Wall and Nassau streets are to have the tallest office building in the country, a giant that will tower forty-two stories in the air. The own ers wanted to start destroying the building April 1, but three tenants had leases until May 1, and notwith standing the fact that they were of fered a bonus of $1,000 each for the extra month, they refused to move. But they get out May 1, and then brick by brick, down comes the struc ture to make way for modern pro gress. The Gillenger is across the street from the office of J. P. Morgan & Co.. and the United States sub treasury. P. M. AT TURTLE LAKE. Washington. April 27. Chairman Haas was today appointed postmaster at Turtle Lake, N.

This action means Dr. Hyde must remain in prison until he is de clared innocent by a jury, or is per mitted by the court to furnish a new bond. The action of the court was due to the nature of the evidence present ed by the state against Hyde. With out notifying anyone of his intention Judge Latshaw summoned County ved, and testimony thus far 0 given in the trial, the court is con strained to say that it amounts to a presumption that, under the law, de prives the defendant of the right to go on bond, and he is hereby remand ed to the custody of the marshal."

Later, when she met Mrs^ Hyde standing with an attorney in the hall, sobbing, she passed quickly back, boarded her automobile and went home. Scarcely had the court ceased speaking when Attorney John Lucas, representing Hyde, had the following statement entered into the record: "The defendant maintains and al leges that the remanding of him to the county jail, pending the trial of his case will have the effect of prejud icing his right before the jury, it be ing construed as a declaration on the part of the court against his interest and leading the jury to believe he is guilty of the offense charged, and asks the court to rescind the order upon that ground."

New York, April 27.—After a scathing opening address by U. S. District Attorney Wise, the govern ment began in earnest today the prosecution of its case against F. Aug. Heinze, the Montana copper man who is charged with misappli cation of funds of the Mercantile National bank, of which he was the former head, and with over-certifi cation of the checks of Otto Heinze & Co., which he and his associates dominated. To the Heinze opera tions the prosecutor referred to as "flim flam" and "bunco games," while he charged that the Mercantile National bank had been reduced to the level of a gambling institution. When counsel had concluded their addresses, the government began the introduction of evidence, the most important of which was a letter of August 1, 1907, "O. K.'d" by the de fendant and addressed to the Mer cantile National bank as follows: "Please deliver to bearer from col lateral you are holding, the follow ing securities: 100 shares Louis ville and Nashville, 100 shares Southern Pacific common, 100 amal gamated copper, and receive in ex change 1,000 united copper common."
