Washington Swelters Under the

For 121 hours yesterday Old Sol with
bright and sKiriing face unveiled by either
cloud or mist from his lofty elevation In
J e heavens looked down upon Mother
J2arth and smiled his warmest smile It
was a smile unminglcd with either sigh
or tear for until evening not even a gen
tle zephyr was wafted through the green
leaves of the trs to kiss the perspiring
brows of suffering humanity and not a
drop of rain fell to moiten the blistering
concrete of the city streets
As early as C oclock in the morning the
smile measured 73 degrees Fahrenheit
and as the day progressed it stretched to
91 degrees at 4 oclock in the afternoon
-when It was little less than uproarious
laughter That is It was probably all
very funny for the glittering orb of day
hut it was mighty hard on sweltering
In fact yesterday was the warmest day
of the year thus far experienced The
downtown thermometers registered 9C and
87 degrees a Blight increase over the offi
cial record at the Weather Bureau It
was a day which made people long for a
trill of the robins note and a whiff of
the new mown hay for a shady nook and
an interesting book for a hammock and
a big tin can for repose at some moun
tain resort or seaside inn for a cooling
breeze and a great deal of ease Yet de
spite the fact that all outgoing trains
were crowded with comfort seekers there
wete some thousands who were left in
to n over Sunday to endure that which
t c mot wciri void - -
iUat erratic individual known as the
official forecaster of the Weather Bureau
whise dally histories of climatic condi
tions so far surpass in point of accuracy
his prophecies promised that rain would
fall n Washington yesterday Some peo
ple were otherwise enough to take this to
mean that there would be showers yester
day but they do not understand the jokes
of the professional meteorologist As was
to be expected there was no here
yesterday Having perpetrated this play
ful prank upon the public the weather
man said last night that there would be a
continuation of the elevated temperature
for Sunday and Monday over the District
of Columbia
But we were not the warmest people by
any means yesterday This statement Is
literally true although It should not be so
stated figuratively There were others
just as warm as we For Instance what
was once bleeding Kansas was perspiring
Kansas yesterday for the temperature In
the Sunflower State ranged from 100 to
162 degrees Missouri kept pace with her
sister Commonwealth and registered an
equal amount of heat
There are no indications of a break in
the present hot wave which inundated
practically all of the region east of the
ltockies even In those sections along the
Jakcs and in New England where there
have been local showers the eonditlons
favor a rise in the mercury today and to
morrow If it doesnt get warmer on Sun
day the prognosticator says It surely will
on Monday lot he Is determined to get
the warmth in somewhere
Horss suffered a great deal from the
heat yesterday and looked with envy
upon the ttlilzzlng and steaming automo
biles and speeding electric cars as if to
welcome the day when all etnoines might
be relegated to the paddock and pasture
Two cases of heat prostration were re
ported yesterday fromtne Emergency
Hospital Those overcome Dy the ex-
years of age whose honre Is at 620 Fitz
gerald court northwest ana Thomas
Noonan about thirty years old who lives
at C6 North Capitol Street While at
Fourteenth and G Streets northwest dur
ing yesterday afternoon McFadden suf
fered greatly from the heat He was
overcome and wa3 sent by the police
to the hospital In the ambulance Under
treatment he revived and last night was
able to go home in a carriage
Nooruiti is a driver employed by the
ICnox Express Corapa iy He was mounted
on his wagon late In the afternoon when
he was overcome by the heat It seems
that Xoonan was about to pick up a box
to remove it from the wagon near Ninth j
street anu iennsyivania Avenue norcn
west when he reeled and fell In the ve
hicle Several people saw that something
was the matter ana went to his assist
ance The ambulance was summoned and
Noonon sent to the hospital for treat
ment He Is thirty eight years of age
TorUn Fntalitiea for the Day
Ten in Number
NEW YORK June a The hot wave
continued here today In full blast and the
city was like a bakeshop The maximum
temperature of the day before was rot
attained hut the heat was nTorc even aid
really more oppressive than on Friday
The figures however give only a faint
ida of the heat that stifled and oppressed
the whole city It was fortunate that It
was a half holiday allowing thousands to
save themselves from the heated walls
and riavements by a hasty departure from
the city Otnerwise the number of deaths
and prostrations must have been much
As it was there were ten deaths andj
tnirty tnree prostrations recoraea as aue

A number of the Important local real
estate brokers are discussing the feasi
bility and desirability of a real estate ex
change or real cstato mens association
for the furtherance cf legitimate busi
ness methods and the protection ofrecog
nized brokers against curbstone men
It is said to be probable that some such
organization will be formed during the
coming summer or autumn
The increase of activity in real estate
during the past few months has been
notable and brokers generally are of the
opinion that the better business is only a
beginning It is figured out that some
thing very like a boom Is due ns busi
ness in almost every other line has been
prosperous xor two yeare or more now
und it is generally not until general pros-
treasurer of Wesley Chapel M E Church 1 perity is well started that real estate be
TUU 1 os4tion lit accepted about ten years J gins to reflect It The prospect of good
ago when the parish was in an impover
times makes brokers doubly anxious to
reap what they consider their fair share
of the rewards It Is stated by a number
of prominent brokers that recent in
stances of unfair if not dishonest meth
ods in the business have een numer
ous and flagrant
The objects of the organization if It Is
formed will be several but they will bo
chiefly along thq in indicated It will be
the endeavor of the association to make
every recognized broker in the District a
member Sundown brokers who sell
real estate as an adjunct to Iiotdfiig office

Talk With the Lender
The conference now being held in Typo
graphical Temple in this city between the
representatives of the National Cash Reg
ister Company of Dajton Ohio and the
Selegafes arpointed by the striking em
pfSyvS of the company was adjourned
shortly after 5 oclock yesterday after
noonLaffer a three hour hesslon and will
1 be resumed at 10 clqck this morning
jLlio pres eni uimcuiues are oems
adjusted to -the satisfaction of both
the Federation of Labor and the com
panys representatives
In speaking of the matter to a Times
reporter Immediately after the adjourn
ment of riie conference Frank Morrison
Secretary of the American Federation of
Labor stated that the Dayton difficulties
had been fully discussed during the meet
ing and excellent progress toward reach
ing an agreement satisfactory to both
sides was being made Further than this
Mr Morrison refused to dlfecus the work
accomplished so far stating that as yet
no definite action had been decided upon
The Dayton difficulty has been one of
several veeks duration and grew out of
the refusal of the officials of the Nation
al Cash Register Company to allow their
employes to labor nine hours per day and
receive compensation for ten hours work
lTpon the refusal of th company to grant
their demands the machinists at once
declared a strike and since that time the
factories of the company have been Idle
In order that the present state of af
fairs might be satlsfactcnly adjusted to
suit both sides it was finally decjfled to
appoint delegates who would ome to this
city for a conference with the American
Federation of Iabor officials to adjust
matters more quickly
In the opinion of many of the parties in
terested in the difficulty the sessIon may
continue a week before a final settlement
wili be reached
Among those who attended yesterday s
session were F H Blckford and A J
Lanver representatives of the National
Cash Register Company E J Lynch of
the Metcl PolUhcn Buffers Platers and
Bras Workers Union of North Ameri
ca John Mulholland President of the
Internatu nnl Association of Allied Metal
Meehanifs S Do iclas Wilson of the
International Association of Machinists
and 1 raiiK Morrison Secretary of the
American Federation of Labor
James OConnell President of the Inter
national Association of Machinists was
to have attended the conference in thib
city but was called to New York yester
day for the purpose of conferring with the
officials cf the Delaware Lackawanna
and Western Railroad toward settling a
strike which has for the past three
weeks bren In progress on that road by
the machinists of the company Mr
OConnell Is represented at the local con
ference however by S Douglas Wilson

the errors have all been corrected and otlw expenses and In many cases even
the outskirts ofthe business
and under no expense cut commissions
below a living limit and steal business
from each other and the legitimate
brokers with no regard whatever for the
ethics of the prpfesrion
A particularly flagrant method of the
curbstone artists Is to offer property hap
hazard to a possible buyer without the
consent of the owner or knowing that the
owner has placed it In the hands of a reg
ular broker Having found a customer
the curbstone man then sounds the owner
and sometime makes aatle by offering
to accept half the usual commission
Sometimes and frequently of course the
owner refuses to do business except
through his regular broker
Another object of the association will
be to secure a law upon the coming ses
sion of Congress against all such curb
stone methods Of doing business The
State of New York has Just adopted such
a law to go into effect on September 1
and its provisions have been Rtudled care
fully by a number of the local fraternity
The law reads
Section CSPd In cities of the- first and
second class any person who shall offer
for sale any roal property without the f j
written authority of the owner of such
property or of his attorney in fact ap
pointed in- writing or of a person who has
made a written contract for the purchase
Of such property with the owner thereof
f shall 1 guilty of a misdemeanor
it has been suggested that with the Im
portant firms of the District as an association-
asking for such a law Congress
would probably pass it While the individ
ual efforts of brokers acting separately
might not secure that result In years

The clerks employed in the internal
revenue office 707 G Street northwest
were kept very uusy yesterday on ac
count of the renewal of all kinds of li
censes issued by the Internal Revenue
Bureau Nearly all the brokers In Wash
ington appeared In a body at the local
office to renew their licenses bo that they
could continue business tomorrow with
out interference from the internal rev
enue officials Many of the local brokers
paid their license fee for next year many
taking out licence s for brokers No 2
which Is known us the bucketshop license
The leading brokers however who have
connection with the exchange refused to
he classified as brokers No 2 and re
frained from taking out the required li
cense 4
Under -he recent ruling of the In
ternal Revenue Commissioner said a
well knoVn broker any firm or broker
that in not a member of an exchange
comes under the bucketshop head The
leading brokers do not regstrd this ruling
as fair or Juit as it would include such
firms as Lewis Johnson Co Crane
Parrls C Bachman Co and others
who have no seats on the New York ex

No 2 or bucketshous Hence brokers of
this class did not take out licenses
