FREELY.
WASHINGTON, July 8.?It Is ex
pected within a few days Preslden
Roosevelt will announce Just what hi!
preferences are In the carrying oa
Df the' plan of the war board for send
Ing a monster battleship fleet to thi
Pacific. The President talked ver;
Freely of the Japanese situation to hi!
advisers and close' friends before hi
left for Oyster Bay. He felt that hi
had accomplished much In his ad
lustment of the school question In thi
Golden Gate city and made It cleai
that he could not understand the antl
American feeling wblch had manifest
ed itself In Japan and which appeared
to be on the Increase.
The number of diplomatic ex
changes, which had taken place be
tween the two governments had al
most got on the nerve of Secretarj
Root. It is known that he feared com
plications. He Anally took the mattei
pp with the President and thi situa
.Ion was carefully canvassed. It Is
paid that the President told Root and
lis other cabinet advisers tbat lit
vould not permit the Japanese tc
Force this government to a position ol
rritatlon: that Japan had been push
>d forward prominently among the
tovernments of the woild by the wai
vith Russia, so they let the "Jingoes'
lave their, way until It was a ques
ion of national honor with the United
States, that when that time came it
vould mean war.

THRILLING EXPERIENCE OF
' MOUNDSVILLE MAN ON
STONE BRIDGE.
WHEELING, July 8.?Struck to the
ground, badly burned about the face,
shocked nearly ' to death, and then
chased ten teet by a broken, squirming
cable, charged with several hundreds
of volts of electricity until he
sank unconscious from exhaustion,
was the experience Saturday afternoon
of C. E. Bailey, a pharmacist of
Moundsville, on the stone creek bridge.
Withal, Bailey Is able to be out and
seems not much worse off.
Bailey was walking northward
across the bridge on the western side,
when at 2:46 o'clock he was felled to
the ground by a oable which had been
broken by a derrick of Contractors
Hoover & Klnnear, doing the Improvement
work for the Baltimore & Ohio
Railroad Company. The moment the
cable struck Bailey's face, bis left
cheek was burned black.

Picked Up As Dead.
The cable, hissing and squirming
ibout, just like a snake, and emlt:!ng
sparks, was only two feet away
vhen the unconscious man was pickid
up and carried to safety.
An examination showed that bis left
aw bone had been fractured, bis face
errlbly burned and his nervous sysem
partially shattered. For many
ninutes he was unable to move, but
air an hour later found him walking,
ip Main street with a reporter.
The cable, which had fallen across |
