July "We are (Working on the case along all. lines land will continue our investigation 'until the facts have been obtained. The explosion w as due in my opinion j to a bomb placed in the reception I room under the old telephone switch- board by a crank to create a sensa ition." ! This statement was made early to day by Elliott Woods, superintendent of the capitol, alter several hours of examination of the damage done to the reception room of the senate wing of the nation's law-making temple by an explosion shortly before midnight. The damage was contined to the re ception room and will be less than $1,000 according to an estimate to day by Supt. Woods. None of the employes of the building were near at the time of the blast and no one vasi hurt. A thorough examination was made by Mr. Woods of the foundations and other portions of the senate side of the building, but he found no struc tural injury. Damage is SiirrfH-ial. Mr. Woods added: "The damage is superficial and can. I believe, be re paired at a cost inside of a thousand dollars. Just what the motive for this crank was or what he hoped to accomplish by the explosion of the bomb in the room at such an hour is only conjectural." Capt. Iaughton, chief of the cap ital police, agrees with Supt. Woods that the explosion was caused by a bomb placed by a crank hours before it went off. The reception room was open to visitors during the day out was closed early in ihe evening. Of ficials stated that it would have been easy for some one to have entered the room with the crowds of visitors and placed the infernal machine be hind the telephone booth. Capt, .Iaughton stated that six months ago a man in St. Louis wrote u letter to Vice Pres't Marshall while congress was in session, threatening to blow up the capitol unless legisla tion favorable to organized labor was enacted. Tiie cai tain paid -ho mad'1 an Investigation f.L the time- "when tho letter was turned over to him with the assistance of the poj.ofhee in spectors. "We finally arrived ;it the conclu sion that it was the work of a crank who had no connection with organ ized labor." he said. lMit Ilmttn 1'iuler Guard.

As soon as we could recover from the effects of the shock we started an investigation. "We quickly saw that the explo sion had been on the upper or main Moor of the senate wing. "There was smoke coming from the direction of the senate chamber; through the reception room. When t we reached tho reception room w here the explosion took place, it was tilled with a black, blinding smoke with the smell of powder clearly indicating that the explosion was due to that cause. "After the smoke cleared away, we entered the room and found the wreck of things in there, as you have seen. A short time after we enteied the room, Supt. Elliott Woods, who had been in his otneo making some exper- ' intents, came hurrying to the scene ol the wreck with several members of his staff.

S. and Currency Falls to Unprecedented Level. Ni:V VOItK. July 3. Several of America's must notable flnancicrs. have this vpf k become ,o impressed by the demortlU 'tion in lairopean money that they predict a general collapse not far off. They question whether American bankers will be justified in linancing unlimited additional shipments of mer chandise to belligerents unless some means can be devised for securing pa nients. There is not enough gold in all Eu rope's central banks to pay for the supplies already contracted for here. The currency of every belligerent has fallen to an unparalleled level of depreciation. itussian monev compared with the American dolhir has lost L'o per cent in value. uerman money is uo-u more than 1 per cent. Austria and Italy arc mueh worse off. French currency is down fully live per cent and now l-hiuland's is on the toboggan. It has declined upward of two per cent and payment for her gigantic orders placed here h;ts not yet begun in earnest. Can't Induce Sab. European governments cannot in duce holders of American securities there to sell them and subscribe to the colossal war loans being lloated. England's stock of gold in Ottawa, it is stated, has been depleted to al most nothing, so tiuit no further assist ance can be looked for from that quar ter in settlimr accounts. The bank of England's reserve has fallen to near the alarmingly low level recorded after the lirst big war i scare alumst to j percent. it useu to be 4J. The great English institu tion, once the strongest pillar of tho world's financial structure, does not today contain enough gold reserve to pay for one month's merchandise ex ports from the United States to for eign countries. It is well recognized by interna tional bankers here that Britain. France, Germany, Kussia, Austria and Italy are all on a bankrupt basis al eady and that every week the war continues will aggravate the position. International exchange is expected ! to become much more demoralized within the next few months. Can't See Way Out.

AUSTRIAN HEADQUARTERS IN G ALICIA, Via Vienna, Berlin and Amsterdam. July ?. Rapid strides by the Austro-German forces along the Vistula river have brought them to a point only 33 miles from Ivangorod. The Russian defense appears to be growing steadily weaker and the in dications now are that the great Rus sian fortress on the Vistula will be beseiged within a short time. After they captured Josefow. the Teutonic troops pressed forward toward Ka mien, on the east bank of the Vistula, while other forces are moving north ward on the west bank. Josefow was taken in a night .at tack after the Austro-German troops had crossed tho Wysnica. That Ivangorod will fall without a great struggle was the confident pre diction made today by Austrian of ficers. Reports have reached Austrian headquarters that tho Russians have withdrawn practically all their sup plies from Ivangorod and sent many of their guns from there to Warsaw, keeping only enough to delay tho Austro-German advance while the czar's troops are concentrated for the defense of Warsaw.

Tho Austrians have been driven back everywhere with se vere casualties, losing strong positions at Plava and east of Sagrado." Another correspondent reports the capture of Austrian positions and nu merous prisoners on the Gorizia Plava road, the Austrians desperately resisting but failing to stem the Ital ian advance.

Kirby or New i oik, held secretary of the National Retail Dry Goods association, in an hour's talk at the Chamber of Commerce luncheon Saturday noon, gave some expert pointers on efficiency in store management. "It is the lack of cooperation and organization in business," he declared, "that causes business to be of tho mercy of politcians and the victim of adverse legislation by those who, having no business interests, do not hesitate to legislate to tho injury of business." Continuous and aggressive coopera tion he said is necessary to save busi ness from the continued onslaughts by municipal, state and national legis lative bodies. As an illustration ho pointed out how labor had improved its conditions by organization. "Coop erative organization." ho said, "means growth in prosperity and influence, both of which are necessary to busi ness interests." Discussing store efficiency Kirby scored the extravagance of borne mer chants in their overhead charges and said too much Ls spent on fixtures and equipments. Delivery systems caiuo in for one blow. "In delivering goods there is un necessary expense in display and extra trips. Each merchant tries to outdo his competitor," he said. Ho also declared against trading stamps and the placing of coupons in jacKages or manuiacturea goous as; being injurious to good busim s and adding to the higher cost of com modities to tht Consumer. One medium af improving business he pointed out is to educate employee in salesmanship. Overdue accounts should have in terest charged he said, after dates set for payment. "The merchant who lends his goods lends his money." was his way of patting it. Discussing tho use of coupons to further sales he said they only at tract persons who buy for others an 1 not those who pay their bills.

Declar ing that J. Pierpont Morgan, the fa mous banker, is responsible for the continuation of the European war, a man believed to be, insane, shot tho financier at his summer home here today. Two wounds were inflicted, both of which were slight, one in the side and the other in the kg. The prisoner is believed to be of tjcrman nationality, although he claims to 1k an American citizen. He speaks with a marked Cerman accent. Tho prisoner was brought here and locked up pending his removal to the county jail at Mineola. After his ar rest he raven about the war, declar ing over and over that Mr. Morgan could end the war if he wanted to. After his arrest the police declared that the would-be assassin had brought, besides two reolvers. a satchel containing six sticks of dyna mite, a bottle of nitroglycerine and several fnlminatimr caps. The man arrived upon the t:r.o train upon the Long Island railro.-Jil and approached Mr. Ford, who operates a taxicab ser vice in Glencove. "I -want to bo driven to the resi dence of J. P. Morgan." said th man. "1 want you to take me there ijuickly for I am In a bi hurry." The man w a.s well dresse.j and Ford's suspicions were in no wise aroused by the request. I J hies to Morgan Home. "Fare" got into the taxicab and be gan to read a newspaper. The. dis tance to "East Island," tile Morgan place, was quickly covered. When the Morgan 'dace was reach ed tho stranger got out of the cab and. as ho paid his fare, he remarked to the taxicab driver: "This Is the man who is responsible for the European war." at tho same time pointing toward the palatial man sion nestling among the trees. The chauffeur believing from tho man's apcamnce that ho v.c.i a bus- ines; acquaintance of the banker, thought nothing of the remark and made some commonplace reply ns ho drove away. Pacing up tho driveway, the. visit or rang tho bell which was answered at once by a butler. "I wish to sec Mr. Morgr.n at once," said the man. And an nfter-thought he added, as though to insure hi seeing the banker, "It is very import ant." Tho servant disappeared, but after a moment returned saying: " I r. Morgan regrets to Fay that he eannot see you because he is very busy." Draws Itoyolvcr. This aroused the stranger's anger. "Won't he see me," he .snarled, drawing' a oS-culibre revohtr from his pocket. "lie will so? me. He n responsible for this war and it ha.i got to stop. He is the man who can stop it." The butler, upon feeing tho weapon, gave a shout of fear, and Mr. Morgan, who was reading in his library at the time, hurried out to aseertain the cause of the commotion. As Mr. Morgan appeared, the but ler, mastering his fear, grappled with the assailant, who was shouting: "I eannot help it: I mut ?w; Morgan, his war has got to stop. It has gon too far now. I've "ome here tv) serve my country." In the seuflle the weapon was drop ped, but the would-be .xssas-'in. break ing the other's grip, drew another pistol, a ol'-calibre weapon.
