Washington, D. C., Juiy 2.—Mr.
.Charles A. Gibson, clerk to the house
committee on agriculture, returned on
Monday last from a trip to England.

day that the Nelll-Reynolds report on
the Chicago packing houses wa^ pub

..'papers (even including the one time
ti conservative London Times) were
fllled with all sorts of sensational re
ports "as to the alleged' unsanitary
conditions in every American packing
"The English meat packers (though
really packers of American grown
meat in most cases) were prompt to
seize the opportunity," said Mr. Glb
son today, "and they are working upon
the prejudices of the people for all
they are worth. In Liverpool the re
tail stores or shops display placards
in which attention is conspicuously
called to the alleged fact that 'no

etc., are used on other days. Candor

pens where live cattle are kept are
beyond reproach and have no super

Lindroth Made a Gun and Shot
Himself With Weapon is
Special to The Evening Time*.
Warren, Minn., July 2.—G. Canna
han, assistant superintendent of a
Minneapolis detective agency, has ex
ploded the verdict of murder returned
by the coroner's jury in the case of
Andrew Lindroth, who was found dead
in a blacksmith shop three weeks ago.
All the, suspects have been released by
the authorities and the grand jury ad
journed today after returning a report
of no' bill.
Lindroth became despondent over
his debts and the fact that he could
not stop .drinking, and told several
persons that he was not going to. live
long. Mr: Cannahan found a piece of
gas pipe about five feet long, which
gave evidence of having been fired
off" and' it was taken to Minnesota's
state chemist, who found therein
traces of burnt powder.
The theory is that Lindroth took
this pipe, plugged one end with putty,
placed a fuse through it and after
loading with powder and a large bul
let held this Improvised weapon to his
breast and fired it.
This clears up the mystery which
has caused no end of excitement in
this town. The county attorney and
sheriff have been blamed and ridiculed,
and proceedings threatened to secure
their removal from office, because it
was said they desired to shield a sup
posed guilty person.

luMlateiTKM to The Evening Time*.
Oyster Bay, L. I., July 2.—Whatever
official business President Roosevelt
transacts today will be done over tele
phone between Sagamore Hill and the
executive offices at Oyster Bay. This
means that the president is to have as
complete relief from the cares of his
office as the circumstances will permit,
and unless some important demand is
made upon him through official chan
nels he will spend the day undisturb
ed. The president is to have many
such days throughout the summer, and
visits from statesmen and politicians
are to be made "as scarce as can be,"
according to Secretary Loeb.
The secretary will not begin his
daily visits to the president until to
morrow. An echo of the slight dis
turbance at the station when the pres
ident arrived yesterday came today
when Clarence Le Gendre, a photog
rapher for the New York World, swore
due a warrant against James Sloan of
the president's secret service staff at
Oyster Bay. The war'rant was served
when Sloan returned from Sagamore
Hill. McQuaid, a village constable,
placed Sloan' under arrest. He was
taken at once before Squire Franklin
and asked for a continuance of the
case. The squire released Sloan on
his own recognizance, telling' him to
appear next Monday to plead to the
warrant which charges him with as

The two men rescued were discov-

TO LIVE TO SEE ISO
Paris. July 2.—M. Jean Finot
has written a book in which he ex
plains how to live 150 years. All
that is needed, says the author, is
the will to do so.
The reason people do not live
longer is because they don't take
proper care of themselves and
economize their forces, he de
clares. People get the notion that
they have got to die at a certain
age and as soon as signs of failing
strength are experienced they do
nothing to combat them, but just
give up. This is absurd, says M.
Finot, for with a proper observ
ance of the rules of hygiene, and
above all the firm determination
to live, there is no reason why
everybody should' not live to be 100
or even 150 years old.
Beer and tobacco are inimical to
longevity, according to M. Finot.
