were made widows a few hours after
their weddings were performed In the

YEAR'S EXPENSES
FOR GOVERNMENT
ARE $648,000,000
Secretary MacVeagh Estimates
Customs Receipts for Twelve
Months at $326,567,420
DEFICIT WILL BE SMALLER
Panama Canal for Year Has
Cost the United States
$33,910,040
rAnsoclßted Press!
WASHINGTON, June 26.—Four days
remain in the government's fiscal year
which ends with the close of business
on June 30.
Uncompleted figures, and estimates
available at this time lead Secretary
MacVeagh to express himself as well
satisfied with the operations of the
treasury department for the fiscal year
now closing.
Mr. MacVeagh regards the new tariff
law as having Justified Itself as a
revenue producer; internal revenue re
ceipts have exceeded the estimates by
approximately $10,000,000, and the year
may end with a surplus in the ordinary
receipts and expenditures, Instead of a
deficit of $34,000,000, as was predicted.
«83,010,040 ON CANAL
During the year the government has
expended on the Panama canal $33,910,
--040. This has been a drain on the
regular working cash balance, there
being no special fund from which pay
ments for this purpose can be made.
Congress has authorized the issue of
bonds to meet canal construction ex
penditures, but Mr. MacVeagh has
balked, on the basis on which the law
provides the bonds shall be Issued.
If at 3 per cent, as now proposed, the
secretary believes they would have a
much bettor national bank circulation
privilege than the outstanding 2 per
cents, and their Issue would therefore
constitute a. discrimination against the^
twos.
BANK TAX REFUSED
Congress refuses to graduate tli'e tax
on national bank circulation secured
by bonds, and the bonds remain unis
sued. The amount of Panama threes
authorized but not Issued aggregates
$290,569,000.
In his annual report to congress In
December, Secretary MacVeagh esti
mates that the ordinary receipts of the
government for the fiscal year 1910
would be $648,000,000; to date they have
aggregated $641,355,532. He estimated
the ordinary disbursements at $682,075,
--620; at this time thoy are $615,510,835.
CUSTOMS RECEIPTS
Customs receipts this year have been
$326,562,420, the treasury estimate for
the year being $335,000,000. Now the
prediction is they will not reach more
than $330,000,000, thus falling below the
estimates.
There has been a material reduction
from the. estimates in expenditure- in
the civil, war and naval estimates and
a decrease of $7,000,000 In the estimated
postal deficiency.
Whether there will be active surplus
at the end of the year, officials say, de
pends upon the amount of corporation
tax money received.
ESTIMATE »15,000,000
Secretary McVengh estimated it
would reach J15.000.000. The prosepeots
are otherwise. The money is paid di
rect to Internal revenue collectors, and
frequently several days elapse before it
reaches the treasury here.
Corporation taxes paid* to date
amount to J3.238.153. If $15,000,000 more
from that source be in the treasury by
the end of the fiscal year the prediction
is made that the dally treasury state
ments for next Friday will show a sub
stantial surplus for the year In the
Items comprising the ordinary receipts
and disbursements.
The total deficit for the year to date,
Including that on account of the Pan
ama canal, the ordinary transactions of
the government and those incidental to
the public debt, is $44,415,940.
CHARLTON BREAKS DOWN
IN HIS PRISON CELL
Prisoner Suffers Collapse in
Hudson County Jail
NEW YORK, June 26.—Porter
Charlton had a nervous collapse In his
cell at the Hudson county jail to
night.
"Willie" Burke, the- safe robber, who
is his cellmate, sen} for the warden in
fear.
"That fellow's sure crazy," said
Burke. "He's moaning and going on
like fits. I'm afraid to stay in here
with him."
The warden found Charlton sitting
on the edge of the bed, his face in his
hands, moaning and Jabbering. A
spasm seemed to seize him and he
shook as with the ague. The warden
sent for Dr. William J. Arlltz, the city
physician of Hoboken, who has been
retained by the Chp.rltons as an alien
ist.
"I found him In a terribly nervous
condition," said the doctor after his
visit. "He would close his hands with
such force as to dig the nails into his
flesh. Then he would laugh in an ab
sent-minded manner and shows every
evidence that he Is not in his right
mind."
The doctor says Charlton has tuber
culosis. One lung seems to be badly
affected.
AGED AUTHORITY ON
INDIANS PASSES AWAY
WASHINGTON, June 26.—Prof. Cyrus
Thomas, one of the most eminent
authorities in the United States on the
history of the North American Indians
and for forty years connected with the
bureau of ethnology, Smithsonian Insti
tution, died at his home today, aged 85.
He had written many books in regard
to Indiana, most of the works relating
to the prehistoric aborigines
His first wife was a sister of the late
John A. Logan. He was a native of
Tennessee.

Provisional Leader Defeats Ma

ISSUE CUSTOMS HOUSE ORDER
_—,__'
Double Duty to Be Imposed and
Americans May Refuse to
Obey Decree
■ [Associated Press]
BL.UEFIELDS, June 26.—A column
of the provisional forces under Gen.
Arizona Cruse has captured La Llber
tad and Juigalpa, Important towns In
the department of Chotanles. This
column is part of General Mena's
army, detached to occupy advantage
ous points within reasonable distance
of Acoyapa. General Mena, with the
great body of troops, Is within gun
shot of Acoyapa, which is garrisoned
by several hundred of the Madriz
forces. . i . '
General Celon, another provisional
leader, has taken San Übaldo, one of
the chief ports of Lake Nicaragua. He
defeated 200 Madrlz troops, who were
on their way to reinforce General
Vasquez.
Further reports state that Vasquez
Is entirely surrounded and that the
threatened attempt by General Mena
against Acoyapa has been delayed in
the expectation of the surrender of
Vasquez.
General Mena intends to occupy all
the surrounding towns. He reports
that General Vasquez is now unable to
get provisions through the lines. As
Vasquez refused permission for the
non-combatants to leave Acoyapa it is
probable General Mena will abandon
his plan of bombardment.
Dr. Julian Irias, Nlcaraguan execu
tive delegate to the Atlantic coast, has
issued a decree that the custom
house for the coast is now in posses
sion of the Madrlz government, and
hereafter any merchandise attempting
to pass without examination by prop
erly appointed customs officials shall
be subject to seizure. This would
mean that a double duty would be en
acted at Blueflelds. It is probable the
American naval officer in' command
here will refuse to recognize this de
cree.
Reports have reached here that Nica
raguan steamers Venus and San Jacin
tp have bombarded one of the coast
towns, Prinzapolca, where a few Es
trada men were staitoned. Heavy gun
and rapid flrers were employed and
much destruction to property was
caused. It Is stated also that no no
tice of the bombardment was given or
any call for surrender.
ACTRESS GOES CRAZY
OVER BIG PRIZE FIGHT
CLEVELAND, Ohio, June 26.—In
sane over the Jeffries-Johnson flght,
Kate Blancke, well known character
actress, was committed to the state
asylum at Newberg today. Since her
arrival in Cleveland last Thursday
Miss Blancke has been sending tele
grams continually to Jack Gleason and
Tex Rickard. the flght promoters, beg
ging them to take her to the contest.
Her actions finally became so peculiar
that her relatives were appealed to,
and after medical examination she was
adudged insane.
Miss Blancke, who has played with
Vaughn Glazer and other companies,
had been recently engaged at a stock
theater in Toledo. Attention was first
attracted to her behavior when she in
sisted on repeating her lines In Ger
man. She left the theater and came to
Cleveland, apparently for the purpose
of persuading a local man who is ar
ranging a special train to go to Reno
to include her among the passengers.
CHIEF WITNESS AGAINST
BURKE WILL NOT APPEAR
SAN FRANCISCO, June Lou
Etta Smith, who was the principal
witness against Dr. William P. Burke
of Burkes sanitarium in Santa Rosa,
is ip Japan and is not expected to re
turn to this country, according to in
formation gained yesterday by Sheriff
John K. Smith of Sonoma county, on
the docking of the steamer China.
Miss Smith has been missing for
months. It was learned from a stew
ardess on the boat that she and her
infant son sailed for Japan April 19.
The woman had charged Dr. Burke
with being responsible for the attempt
made to dynamite the tent house In
which she and her child were sleeping.
The aged physician is under Indict
ment foi this charge. Miss Smitli also
accused him of being the boy's father.
As there is no charge against Miss
Smith nothing can be done to bring
her back to this country. The case
against Dr. Burke, which is set for
September, will, it is said now, be with
out foundation.

THREE DEATHS TOLL
OF STEAMER FIRE
Escape of Nearly 1500 Persons
from Doomed Mississippi
River Boat Miraculous
[Associated Press]
■ LA CROSSE, Wis., June Three
persons lost their lives and almost
three-score were injured in , the j de
struction by fire of the Acme Packet
company's excursion steamer J. S., be
tween Victory and Genoa,, tweuty-f our
miles south of La Crosse on the Mis
sissippi river, late last night. The
dead are:
.MRS. EMMA RANDALL, New Al
bion, Iowa; drowned.
JOHN PLANE, Waukon, Iowa;
burned to death.
Unidentified woman, drowned.
The seriously injured are: Joseph
Coyle, Lansing, lowa, both hands
burned and severe injuries about body;
Mrs. Meyer, Lansing, leg- broken; Mrs.
Conn Joseph, Desoto, seriously Injured
about head and shoulders and possibly
Internally injured; Archie Bailey, Vic
tory, ankle mashed; Mrs. Gus Kaep
pler, Victory, ankle sprained, severe
bruises about body; fltty persons re
ceived cuts and bruises of a minor
character.
ESCAPES MIRACULOUS '
The escape of all but a handful of
the 1500 persons who thronged the,
decks of the big boat when the flre
broke out is regarded as the greatest
miracle in the annals of the upper
Mississippi.; Prompt work by the crew
and by cool-headed passengers in con
trolling the frantic passengers is all
that prevented hundreds of people from
jumping into the river in midstream.
Mrs. Randall was the only one who
broke through the guard on the edge
of the decks, and twenty men had arms
outstretched to grasp her when she
plunged into the water. Her body has
not yet been recovered.
♦ LOCKED IX HOLD
John Plane was locked • in the hold
for disorderly conduct, and in the ex
citement no one thought to release
him. His body is undoubtedly in the
( river bottom with the steamer, which
'sank after burning to the water's edge.
It was late this morning before the
last of the stranded excursionists were
removed from Bad Axe island on which
the boat was beached ten minutes after
the fire broke out.
Norman Fox of Victory, Wis., who
was thought to. have been burned in
the boat's jail, was located in La
Crosse today. He had missed the boat
here.
The loss to the Acme Packet com
pany is estimated at $60,000. , All pas
sengers on the steamer lost clothing,
money, jewelry or other valuables, and
1 it is estimated that this combined loss
will aggregate $10,000. . •
It is still possible that other excur
sionists are missing, although all pas
sengers thus far sought by relatives
have been accounted tor. . .
Unusual circumstances marked the
injuries received by those -who were
most seriously hurt.
Joseph Coyle of Lansing, lowa, was
badly burned about the hands by slid
ing down the burning stanchion from
an upper deck. .
Mrs. Dr. Meyer of Lansing and Mrs.
Kaeppler of Victory, whose ankle was
sprained, were hurt in the rush of
women when the . flre was first dis
covered, i
Mrs. John Joseph of Desoto was in
jured in a strange manner. She had
jumped into the shallow water from
the second deck and Just as »he started
to wade ashore a heavy woman Jump
ing from the third deck struck her
head and shoulders. Mrs. Joseph, It is
feared, is internally Injured.
Mrs. Archie Bailey caught her foot In
the,gang plank and the crowd, push
ing to escape, threw'her down, break
ing the ankle.

TAFT HUGHES AND
T.R. MAY CONFER
Triangular Conference of States
men Is Thought Likely to
Take Place
[Associated Press!
OYSTER BAY, June 26.—The embar
go that Theodore Roosevelt has placed
on political news direct from Sagamore
Hill was not lifted today and in the
absence of any visitor who might be
connected remotely with politics there
was no new development in the situ
ation that Ac coming conference with
Governor Hughes has created.
There Is a persistent buzz of gossip
that the most important political
gathering of recent months is to be
held this week at Beverly, Mass., or
near by.
No positive confirmatory evidence
has been produced, but much weight
is placed on three words spoken by
Roosevelt yesterday, when asked if he
expected to see President Taft at Bev
erly after his visit to Harvard. He
said, "I don't know."
His manner showed clearly his un
willingness to discuss the question,
but he did not deny the possibility.
Governor Hughes' secretary is quot
ed as having said yesterday that the
governor would see Col. Roosevelt at
Cambridge this week. It is thought
possible that President Taft, Col.
Roosevelt and Governor Hughes may
gather together.
Citizen Roosevelt had a day of rest
today; there was not a visitor at Sag
amore Hill. The colonel spent the day
with his family, attending, with his
two younger sons, Archie and Quentin,
Christ church in the morning. Some
of his townsmen were on the lawn of
the church to receive him and he
waved his hand as he walked into the
building.
Oyster Bay has reached the conclu
sion that the former president hag
overcome at last his aversion to auto
mobiles, for he rode to church in one
today and has usen one constatly
since his return.

CALLS LEADER PLAIN BOSS
Says Stand Pat Chieftain's Sole
Hope Is Machine and Aid of
Former President
[Associated Press]
"WASHINGTON, June 26.—Represen
tative Butler Ames of Massachusetts
publicly announced his candidacy for
the United States senate today in a
formal statement embodying an ex
ceptionally bitter attack upon Sena
tor Henry -Cabot Lodge.
Mr. Ames in his statement says he
becomes a candidate after having
failed to induce anyone else to "take
up the fight against Boss Lodge and
his political machine."
The statement continues: "This ma
chine, backed by all the large cor
porations and all the state and federal
patronage at its command, has for
many years served as an efficient tool
to crush all political ambitions, en
deavors and opinions not sanctioned by
Lodge.
"His orders have gone out to crush
not only for his own political ends, but
to advance the selfish schemes of the
large railroads, banking and manu
facturing interests he serves in the
halls of congress as well as in the
Massachusetts legislature.
SEEKS AID OF ROOSEVIXT
"It is reported that in hia political
extremity, fearing to seek re-election
on his long public record in congress
and in the state, his one hope is that
Mr. Roosevelt may create new confi
dence in his behalf by speaking for
him as an old friend. It is hard to
believe that the former president
would lend himself to the political sup
port of one, even though a friend, who
has Consistently violated all the moral
teachings of which he is the great ex
ponent.
"With direct primaries it is univer
sally admitted that Mr. Lodge would
have no possible chance of re-election.
The Lodge machine and lobby .worked
in the senate (Massachusetts) success
fully to defeat the direct primary bill
which had passed the house.
"The defeat of Mr. Lodge and the
termination of this machine will lend
more than anything else to party suc
cess not only in the state, but in the
nation. It will restore confidence In
the Republican management by divorc
ing the legislature lobby from the po
litical machine and by defeating a
public official who has so long served
the private interests rather than the
public good."
Mr. Ames says he expects the Lodge
men will try to prevent pledging of

BECAUSE OF POOR VESSEL
Conditions on Gunboat Marietta
May Start Naval Reform
WASHINGTON, June 26.—As an out
come of the investigation into the con
dition of the gunboat Marietta, which
has just resulted in a very mild cen
sure of her commanding officer, Com
mander Frank K. Hill, as the princi
pal punishment, reforms in repair and
inspection of naval vessels are expect
ed to follow.
Although the court of inquiry rec
ommended that Commander Hill be
censured, its report, which became
public today, reads much like a vin
dication of that officer. It was found
that the board of inspection, which had
started the rumpus over the Marietta,
had overdrawn the facts and that th:
Marietta was such an old hulk the •■
she might have gone down at sea ha>i
some comparatively trivial accident oc
curred to her.
In this connection the court report
ed that Lieutenant Rlchtei, senior en
gineer officer of the ship in 1909, "en
deavored to get detached from the Ma
rietta and not succeeding had commit -
ted suicide on board,"
This is the first official light on the
death of Lieutenant Rlchter, who died
in Hampton Roads October 14, 1909.
Commander HIU was held partially
responsible for the Marietta going to
Ma in such poor condition, but the
court pours some hot shot into the nuvy
yards.
It appears that certain repairs were
made on the Marietta at the Washing
ton navy yard in February, 1909, and
later at the Portsmouth, N. H., navy
yard.
Although there flfty-flve days. It Is
reported not all the repairs were made
that Commander Hill requested.
