A GREATER UNION FORESEEN
Secretary ClimulierlninH Address nt
the Dominion Day llniiiiuet
LONDON JuKl Secretary Chamber
lain was oneii the speakers at the Do
minion Day banquet this evening He
made the friendliest and most apprecia
tive references to Canada In the course
of his remarks on the Dominions advance
since federation he incidentally said that
the advantages derived from federation
furnished a suggestion of the possibility
and advantages of a still greater union
In which the sister nations should be held
together by common interests and com
mon aspirations
Alluding to Sir Wilfrid Lauriers whilom
suggestion that the colonies be called in
to the motherlands councils Mr Cham
berlain said he belleed the movement
in that direction was progressing The
movemsnt must emanate from the colo
nies but if thry showed a desire for a
closer connection and were willing to as
sist not only with arms but in councils
he believed there was nothing in this
country that would be more readily wel
comed
Much of the speech was taken up by
by an appreciation of colonial help in the
South African war ami in connection with
this subject Mr Chamberlain recalled
thaT a political opponent lately said they
roust look to the opinion of civilized Eu
rope for a verdict or their policy He had
great respect for civilized Europe but he
looked with greater confidence to the ver
dict of posterity to the unbiased opinion
of the colonies than to the unlnstructed
prejudice and envy of foreign nations
who greedily nwallow ed ever He foisted
upon them by enemies abroad and trai
tors at home

PEKIN July 1 The installation by
Russia of a civil administrator in Xleu
Chwang Manchuria has caused the
question of the occupation of that prov
ince by the Russians to become promi
nent again Some of the Powers have
already recognized the administrator but
the Ministers of other nations are doubt
ful as to the course to be followed In the
matter and are awaiting instructions
from their home Governments Among
those thus awaiting instructions is the
representative of the United States
It is understood the British and Jap
anese Ministers will recommend to Li
Hung Chang some plan for opening Man
churia to the world in such a way as to
constitute an effectual barrier to Rus
sian aggression and to avoid trade and
other complications that are otherwise
bound to follow a Russian occupation
The matter has not yet been presented
to the Court
Li Hung issued a proclamation some
time -ago regarding the treatment of con
verts in Chou Fu It was addressed to
all the magistrates of the Province of
Chi li who were instructed that all of
fenders were to be considered equal with
out regard to their religion The proc
lamation enumerated charges of overbear
ingcondtict and persecution on the part
of converts at Chou Fu and says that
the charges are almost wholly against
Catholics
It is understood the edict for the de
struction of records and the dismissal
of clerks was suggested by the secretary
of Jung Lu the former generalissimo of
the Chinese forces who is said to be in
high favor at the Court It is agreed by
everybody that great difficulty will be
experienced In carrying out the edict as
a large and corrupt body is affected

SCORES DIE II NEW YORK
Seventy five Fatalities From the
Heat in Three Boroughs
Within Two Decrees of the Highest
Temperature Known in the Citj
A Heavy Mortality Anions Horse
Slight Relief Given by it Breeze
NEW YORK July 1 The highest
cial temperature on record in New York
since the organization of the Weather
Bureau thirty years ago has been 100
degrees This was on September 7 1SS1
Todays temperature was just two degrees
below that figure
In the three boroughs of Manhattan
Brooklyn and the Bronx seventy five
deaths frcm tho heat were reported to the
police between midnight Sunday and mid
night tonight In Manhattan and the
Bronx there were fifty one deaths and
In Brooklyn twenty four The li3t of pros
trations numbered hundreds in Manhattan
and the Bronx alone
Today was the hottest of the present
hot spell and the hottest July 1 on rec
ord and It came within one degree of
touching the high mark of heat for any
day in any entire month of July since
the Government Weather Bureau was or
ganized
At ten minutes after 3 oclock this af
ternoon the oliicial thermometer in the
weather olfice nway up on the twentieth
greatest heat of Sunday
From 310 oclock the mercury dropped
until at 4 it was at 93 which was just
the record of the hottest July 1 that of
1S72 since the Government began looking
after the weather The highest tempera
ture recorded for July since the weather
observations began was on July 9 1S70
when the thermometer marked 89 degrees
But the oliicial temperature of 93 de
grees today was not by any means the
temperature in which New Vorkers lived
and moved and did their work The
htreet thermometers of course varied
according to their varying degrees of ac
curacy und also according to the places
where they were exposed There was one
that recorded as low as 92 degrees when
the oliicial teroiterature was 95 With
this exception however there was not
a street thermometer noted that was not
marking anywhere from 103 to 107 at 3
oclock
So far as the Weather Bureau here
and at Washington can see there is not
a peg visible all around the wide horizon
of their observations on which So hang
a hope of relief The best comfort to
be had from the weather observers is
that this thing cannot last forever you
enow there is bound to bc a change
sooner or later
There is not even a tramp thunderstorm
to be heard from and there is nothing
like cooler conditions anywhere this side
of the MIssisMppi River
The one saving grace in todays terrific
temperature was the fact that the humid
ity was not in keeping with the thermom
eter Coupled with this there was a steady
sweep of air up from the South veering
now and again to the southwest in a uni
form even blow that now and again rose
to the dignity of a distinct breeze This
doubtless saved many lives and averted
many m jre prostrations
Yet with all these more favorable con
ditions the number of prostrations ana
deaths was startling Todays record in
this respect did not fall far short of the
worst list of heat casualties known on a
single day in New York
The mortality among horses was vastly
fatalities is two dead six prostrations
and one attempted buiclde while crazed by
the heat
BALTIMORE July l Six deaths and
fifteen prostrations is the heat casualty
ture for the day was a record breaker
for this time of the year The thermome

morning At noon the report at the bu
reau was 102 which Mr Fasslg said sur
passed all precedents for the time of year

SENATOR KYLE DEAD
Succumbs o Miilnrln Combined With
11 on it T ouble
ST YAUL July 1 United States Sen
ator James H Kyle died at his home In
Aberdeen at G oclock this evening Sen
ator Kyle was stricjkeii at his home at
Aberdeen about ten -days ago His trou
ble was of malarial origin and resulted
in a functional affection of the heart A
consultation of physicians was held and
his case s oon took sifturn for the better
the heart action growing stronger and
the general condition much more en
couraging
One of the latest bulletins from his
bedside last week was to the effect that
he had passed the danger point and that
his recovery would be certain He had a
similar attack in the East some time
ago and was liable to a recurrence of
the trouble His health has not been
robust for a year or so His relapse to
day was not expected however
The death of Senator James II Kyle
removed one of the most striking charac
ters In the West His second term would
have expired in 1908 When he was first
elected to the United States Senate he
was a member of the State Legislature
The Democrats and Republicans were
deadlocked There were factions in each
party and none would yield Kyle was a
Congregational missionary preacher he
was little known and inward the close
of the session he was named for United
States Senator and elected the same day
He was called a Democrat or Independent
often voting with the Republicans
In 1S37 after forty five days in deadlock
with the Republicans and Populists the
latter bitterly opposing him the entire
Republican vote was swung around for
Kyle and elected him This was largely
Hoor of the American Surety Building due to the attitude he had taken against
scored SS degrees and that was he top Senator Pettlgrew whom the Republicans
notch of heat for the day just a little
less than one degree hotter than the
nad dropped Kyle came out squarely for
the Republicans rtnd supported the Ad-
ministration in everything He and not
Senator Pettlgrew became the dispenser
of Federal patronage
Senator Kyle was a man of convictions
I could continue a Populist said he ln
good party standing but -the corporate in
fluence and he powerful machine In
stalled in the party in my State have
regardless of party welfare sought to
drive me out This I deny their right
to do and I shall continue to advocate
my convictions on all public questions ind
on minor matters I trust I shall not
prove ungrateful to the Republicans to
whom I am indebted for my re election
James Henderson Kylo was born ln
Ohio near the town or Xenla February
U 1S54 and was but forty seven years of
age He tntered the University of Illinois
in 1S71 taking a course in civil engineer
ing In 1S73 he took the collegiate course
at Oberlln College and was graduated in
1S7S He prepared for the bar but later
entered Western Theological Seminary
Allegheny Pa During these years Sena
tor Kyle taught mathematics and engi
neering After his graduation in 1SXJ he
engaged In educational and ministerial
work in Vtah and South Dakota At the
time that he entered political life he held

HOT BEARDED AS SERIOUS
Steel Men Yiew the INew Strike
as Unimportant
Unlikely to He KxtciiNire They Sny
as eitlier the Carnegie Companies
Xor the Tube Works Are Union
Seotdnle Men Refuse to Go Out
NEW YORK July 1 Officers and di
rectors of the United States Steel Corpor
ation did not appear today to regard the
strike ordered by President Schaffer of
the Amalgamated Association as serious
In the stock market there was some sell
ing of United States Steel common and
preferred shares each of which suffered a
net loss of U point - compared with the
closing price of Saturday last
A reporter who called at the office of
the Executive Committee of the United
States Steel Corporation received the fol
lowing statement concerning the labor
troubles
The United States Steel Corporation is
simply a stockholding company and docs
not in any respect direct the management
of any company in whose stock the
former is Interested Information has
been received from the American Steeji
Hoop Company and the American Sheet
Steel Company respectively that the
questions which have been discussed by
them and representatives of the Amal
gamated Association grow out of the ef
forts by the latter to extend union labor
into the mills where it has not hereto
fore existed that the officers of the two
companies above named have expressed
a willingness to promptly sign the Amal
gamated Association scales for mills in
which their unions have heretofore exist
ed but not for other mills No question
of amount of wages is involved
A well known officer of the United
States Steel Corporation made the fol
lowing additional statement
We do not regard the strike of the
Amalgamated Association of Iron Steel
and Tin Workers as of very serious im
port In the first place neither the Car
negie companies nor the tube company
Is union and only about half the work
men in the sheet steel plants belong to
the union
PITTSBURG July 1 The difficulty
between the Amalgamated Association
and the officers of the American Sheet
Steel Company and the American Steel
Hoop Company took on a new phase to
day when it became known that the two
mill3 in dispute Old Meadows at Scot
dale and Saltsburg are claimed by both
parties Speaking of conditions at Scot
dale John Jarrett Secretary of the La
bor Bureau Sheet Steel Company said
Tho Amalgamated people have no
claim to the Old Meadows and Saltsburg
mills The men in Scotdale arc work
ing under special agreements with us
These agreements have been extended to
January 1 1903 They left the Amalga
mated Association of their own volition
We did not urge them to leave It Presi
dent Shaffer can order out his men but
the question Is can he stop the mill
With regard to the mill at Saltsburg I
can prove that prominent members of
the Amalgamated Association said there
was no lodge there and they wanted an
independent agreement
The whole thing in a nutshell Is this
The Amalgamated Association seems anx
ious to have us force the meaat Scotdale
and Saltsburg Into their fold again This
wo will not do
Word comes from Scotdale late txmlght
that the men have refused to strike and
will continue at work especially as they
were notified that the sheet company
would pay the scale asked by the Amal
gamated Association an increase of 10
per cent over last years rate
MACHINISTS GIVING IN

the striking machinists of this city have
lost their fight This evening those em
ployed at the Cliff Works of the Dickson
Manufacturing Company held a meeting
and after a protiacted discussion decided
to return to work tomorrow morning at
tho old scale of wages
The men were moved to do this because
a great number of men were returning to
work as indiviuuals This has demon
strated the strike to be a failure and the
men who are yet out are feverishly anx
ious to get employment

the works Is about MM

A RECEIVER TAKES CHARGE
HitlTnlo City Xntionnl Bank Direc
tor in Conference
BUFFALO July l Mr Vaughan the
temporary receiver took charge of the
City National Bank today William C
Cornwell the President arrived home
from Washington and summoned the di
rectors to a meeting which lasted most
of the day The clearing house commit
tee also held a session and conferred
with representatives of the bank and
other financiers
Neither tho representatives of the
Comptroller of the Currency nor the bank
dliectors would furnish any Information
as to the character or amount of loans
classified as bad by the Comptroller Mr
Cornwell gave out this statement
I did not know anything about thW
until Friday afternoon when a meeUng
of the board was requested by a repre
sentative of the Comptroller which meet
ing was held at 10 oclock in the even
ing Wo were then notified that the
Comptroller considered some of our assets
doubtful and that the bank would have
to go into a receivers hands on Monday
morning We hoped to nake these good
before that time but were unable to
do so
1 believe the assets of the bank ample
to pay tho depositors In fulland hope
that we may resume before long 1 saw
the Comptroller In Washington on Sunday
and he will extend every help possible for
fair realization on assets in the -interest
of depositors and stockholders
As to the loans disapproved by the
Comptroller the directors are making
earnest efforts to have these promptly
taken up and the meeting this morning
was in reference to this
The Fresh Air Fund for the Children
is tied up in the bank It amounts to
1900
Mr Mason the bank examiner to
night denied that the loans made by the
City Bank on Pan American enterprises
had induced the Comptroller of the Cur
rency to determine to appoint a receiv
er The loans of this character are not
very large and the bank Isas well pro
tected as possible where the Investment
is so largely a speculation
This report became current because
Mr Cornwell is a stockholder in some of
the enterprises notably the Streets of
Cairo backed by a Rochester clothing
firm and three or four Midway shows
promoted by E S Dundy of Omaha
who Is credited with dropping 50000 at
the Omaha Exposition It was stated
tonight by an official of the defunct bank
that had Its other securities been good
the City National could have stood a total
loss on ai its Pan American loans with
out the solvency of the bank being af
fected
The City National has a smaller inter
est in exposition ventures than most of
the Buffalo banks The paper of that
class is pretty well endorsed as most of
the business men of Buffalo are in
vestors in show or hotel properties
The loans to which the Comptroller ob
jected are to large manufacturing con
cerns which have renewed again and
again and seem unable to reduce their
liabilities and to business men
of speculative tendencies who have de
posited collateral of question lble value
To evade the national banking law
which puts a limit on loans to one indi
vidual one of these manufacturers has
borrowed the notes of his clerks and
bookkeepers which he has endorsed The
Comptroller ruled that he was the real
borrower

of IMxtolf
RICHMOND Va July 1 The lynch
ing at Lawrenceville this morning of
Joseph Walton the negro charged with
attempted criminal assault on Miss Kate
Clarke the pretty daughter of J H
Clarke of that place has caused a great
deal of talk here this evening
Governor Tyler said tonight that if he
had known that there was any idea on
the part of the citizens of Brunswick
County to lynch the negro he would have
ordered out the militia as soon as the
prisoner was arrested
The lynching was a quiet affair there
being no noise save the occasional tiring
of a pistol Many of the men It is un
derstood wanted to fire on the negro be-
forehead The lynching took place a
short distance from Lawrenceville on the
Meherrin River The negro is still hang
ing to the tree from which the mob swung
him
The crime for which the negro lost his
life was committed last Thursday morn
ing near Triplette which is a small ham
let Walton was living with J If Clarke

tion about 2 oclock screams were heard
from the room of Miss Kate Clarke a
young lady seventeen years old The ne
gro who slept in tho house was found
missing from his pallet A ladder had
been placed against the window of the
young ladys room and tracks leading
therefrom to a cotton patch fitting the
negros feet were found After a thor
ough search Walton was found hiding In
the cotton patch
The negro would havo been tried in

THE COLUMBIAS VICTORY
Fnvored by Fortune in Her Enco
With the Constitution
Slovrncss at the Lnttern Crevr One
of the Causes Thnt Kctnnlcd the
Nciv Cup Uexender Her Defeat
Ilinmed to Her Untried Condition
NEWPORT R I July 1 The Consti
tution sailed her first race teday and
the old champion of IKtt the Columbia
was her competitor The race was sailed
in a wind that at the start was rather
light but toward the end of the race it
freshened considerably It was a fifteen
mile beat to windward and return and
the Columbia won by forty eight sec
onds elapsed time The Columbia has
not been measured this year but taking
her last seasons measurement the Con
stitution will have to allow her one min
ute and twenty two seconds so that on
corrected time the Columbia won by
about two minutes and ten seconds
This result was rather a surprise to
many who had expected to see the new
yacht sail away from the older one and
these yachtsmen were at a Ios3 to ex
plain how it happened There were many
things to explain the defeat of the new
yacht and it Is generally conceded that
when the Constitution Is In proper shape
she will beat the Columbia by about five
minutes In the race today the Colum
bia got the better position at the start
It looked very much as though Mr Dun
can purposely allowed the Columbia to
get across the starting line with tho
Constitution under her lee In order to
show just how the new yacht would go
to windward thus handicapped A very
pretty struggle followed The Constitu
tion was given a hard pull and romped
oft her course while the Columbia was
pinched and worked to windward- In rare
style
The Constitution footed so fast that she
soon drew clear of the Columbia with
the older boat pointing much higher than
the new one It was impossible to tell
whfch was doing the better work They
each made a long tack to the southeast
and the Constitution tacked to port
This It was thought would bring the
yachts together on opposite tacks and
show just what each had done after aa
horns sailing but Captain Barr who was
sailing the Columbia refused to accept the
challenge and tacked to port a few sec
onds after the Constitution had come
about After sailing for a few minutes
on this lack the Constitution pulled the
crinkle out of the clew of her jib Thr
jib llapped in the wind and had o
taken in
A new sail was hoisted and t
ten minutes after the accident
the new sail was drawing T
riously hampered the Constitutlc
the Columbia made quite a gain
the outer mark was in sight theO
mnde a short turn and then was uo lu
fetch the mark The Constitution at the
same time made a hitch and stood on two
minutes longer than the Columbia This
was two minutes lost and she came down
to the line with started sheets In spite
of these errors and the accident the Co
lumbia only beat the Constitution one
minute and fifty seven seconds to the
windward mark actual time
Then it was a run home The Columbia
broke out her spinnaker in less than three
minutes after rounding the cuter mark
It took those on tne Constitution six min
utes to get her big sail hoisted and draw
ing The Columbias crew was only five
minutes and twenty five seconds getting
the balloon jib topsail drawing whMe
those on the Constitution were more thin
fourteen minutes In spite of this tne
Constitution ran back in less time than
the Columbia gaining one minute and
nine seconds on the run
These delays will soon bs avoided after
the crew has hail more opportunity to
fore he was Hwunir tn the tree he I drill and If the sails had been handled no
- w r -
was lnched he was shot seveYal times quickly on the Constitution as they were
by the mob One ball hit him in the i n the Clumbi there Is no doubt that
the gain would have been greater Some
think the Constitution was favored a lit
tle on the run home by the wind freshen
ing and coming in with the starn boat
but impartial judges thought that one
boat was not favored more than the other
The Columbia was in fine trim She had
a suit of sails that were far superior to
those that she carried in the Cup race
of ISM The mainsail of the Constitution
appeared to have a little more fullness
than that of the Columbia There were
a few wrinkles at the head of the sail
which however will stretch out It did
not trim as flat as that of the Columbia
This fullness however enab the Con
stitution to foot faster than the Colum
bia but the old boat laid a little closer
to the wind
While the members of the Nw York
Yacht Club would have llketl the Consti
tution to have won the first race the gen
eral opinion Is that the new boat acquit
ted herself very creditably She gave
promise of a great turn of speed and of
being able to beat the Columbia handily
She Is not in trim yet nnd the crew have
not had a fair chance to get familiar
with the yacht
After the race had ended the Columbia
ran on and took In her light sails
Then she gybed her boom to starboard
in order to reach up the harbor to get to
her moorings In gybing the turn of the
sheet flew off the eleat and the boom
went ovur so hard that it snappeel and the
end dragged in the water The sail was
hauled on board the club topsail lowered
and then the malns all tent down and the
tender of the j acht the Park City towed
the Columbia home
It Is expected that the extra spar will
he here tomorrow and that the yacht will
be ready lo soil again on Wednesday
