Sec retary of War Dickinson and Secretary Nagel, of tho Department of Commerce adn Labor, whose departments are di rectly interested in the country's water ways, will be associated with the presi dent on a most extensive program. MISS ELKINS CAUSES HITCH Denied That Italian -Royalty Is Objecting to the Match. Paris.—A high personage, in touch with previous preliminary arrangements regarding the marriage of the Duke of the Abruzzi and Miss Katherine Elkins, says the real hitch was not due to ob jections on the part of the Italian royal family, but to the attitude of Miss Elkins herself. "If Miss Elkins would accept the duke," said this authority, "there woulfi be no obstacle placed in the way of the marriage by his family. I know that the king and the royal family have offered to grant their consent, not to 'a morganatic union, but to a marriage which would include the privileges and rank for Miss Elkins to which the duke is entitled. The duke's fate rests with Miss Elkins herself. If she should say the word, the duke would be at her side tomorrow, and the marriage would not long be delayed." GREATER THAN NIAGARA Monterey Had 21.61 Inches of Rain in Ninety-Eight Hours. City of Mexico.—James D. Schuyler, the well-known American engineer, who recently accompanied President Taft on a tour of inspection of the Panama canal, declared in an interview that the rush of water in the recent Monterey flood which destroyed millions of dol lars' worth of property and 1,500 lives in that city alone, was greater in vol ume than that pouring over the Niagara Falls. According to figures furnished him by competent engineers, the volume of wa ter of the Santa Catarina river on the night of Aug. 27 exceeded the flow of Niagara by 48,000 cubic feet per second. Mr. Schuyler said: "To give an idea of the rainfall in Monterey, just be fore the flood, I can tell you what the figures are. As much as 21.61 inches of rain fell in ninety-eight hours from Aug. 26 to Aug. 29. A-few days before that time 14 inches fell in forty-two hours, making a total of 34.16 inches in 140 hours. The mean ranifall there for Au gust in any .year in twenty-one years has not exceeded 3% inches." TEXAS LOG PONDS ARE DRY Drouth Oloaes Lumber Mills—Will Raise Lumber Prices. Galveston, Tex.—The unprecedented drouth in Texas, especially in the east ern part of the state, closed five saw mills today. This brought out the state ment that unless East Texas received a heavy rain within the next ten days, fifty other mills will have to close down.
