X 44 s WEATHER REPORT OPENED J TAR Seattle Exposition Started by Pressing Button. KEY MADE OF ALASKA NUG5ET Buildings Completed and All the Exhibits In Place on Opening Day, Beating All Pre vious Records. Seattle, WnHh., .June 1. The Alaska Yukon-Pacific exposition Is open. Al 12 o'clock. Scuttle time, President Tuft pressed the button which set the ma ehlnory in motion, using for the pur pose u key formed of Alnskn nuggets As the 'wheels In the various building began whirring nnd the latest of the world's fairs was declared official! opened one feature that excited the -enthusiastic comment of the great crowds present was that the manage ment had lived up to Its motto of "the show that will bo on time." Not only were the buildings completed and the grounds covered with grass and flow ers, as though they had been planted for years, but every exhibit was In place. It Is the first time any exposi tion has actually opened on the open ing day, and the departure has proved most welcome to the visiting thou ands. The ceremonies on the grounds be gan two hours before President Tuft PISHKIDKXT J. 13. CniLREUG. on the other side of the continent, pressed the button that made the great fair a living tiling. The scene present ed carried out Charles Dana Gibson's verdict after visiting the grounds that the A.-Y.-P. is "the most beautiful exposition ever planned." Situated be tween two fresh water lakes in a for est, of great trees, w.lth one open colon nade showing a background from dif ferent angles, the natural setting to tho picture Is ideal. There are the usual buildings seen at expositions, with the advantage that many of these are to lie permanent and after the fair is closed on Oct. ir will be turned over to the University or Wash ington, on whose campus the fair is held. The fact that the exposition grounds belong to a college Is the cause of a third novelty, which Is that this is a "dry" show, no Intoxicating liquors being sold in the vicinity. Still a fourth unique feature Is that this exposition did not ask I'nclo Sam for a cent. The .$000,000 which was spent on the governmeiifbuildings was giv en voluntarily. The A.-Y.-P. is commemorative of no past event. It Is hung upon to morrow rather than yesterday, a prophecy rather than a niemoVial. It exhibits what are unknown and untie veloped, the potentialities of the Pa cific northwest, Alaska and countries bordering on the Pacific. Otherwise stated, it is an exposition of what is very largely unknown rather than of the highest development. Alaska has re uml ned first In the title and Inspira tion of the exposition. This territory, for which we paid $7,200,000, produces three times that amount every year In gold alone. In the last forty years It has produced, besides its gold. $S0,. 000,000 worth of furs, nnd Its fisheries have handled a product valued at 000,000. The exposition serves to show Americans that Alaska is an em pire of agricultural nnd forest wealth as well as a treasure box of minerals. The far eastern countries bordering on the Pacific, including the Philip pines and Hawaii, have the most elab orate exhibits at Seattle that they have ever attempted anywhere. Here it is possible to find out what these coun tries need as well as what they pro duce. Japan perhaps more than any other eastern nation has grasped the commercial Importance of the exposi tion. For the amusement street of the ex position a novel name nnd many novel ' features have been found. What was the Midway at Chicago, the Pike at St. Louis, tho Trail at the Portland ex oosltlou and the Warpath at James- town Is called the Pny Streak at Seat tle. The administration of the exposition has been in the hands of various de partments, each backed by a commit tee of the leading business men of the northwest. J. E. C'hllberg. a pioneer of Alaska and head of the Scandi navian American bunk. Is president. Little Girl Killed by Auto. Loekport. X. Y., June 1.

Financier Sails For Europe, Saying That There Will Be a Big Rise In Stocks and Crops Will Be Good. New York. June 1. Edward II. ijjlar rlman before sailing today for Kurope on the Kaiser Wllhelm II. gave out an optimistic Interview, In which he de clared that prosperity Is surely at hand, that the effects of the panic of 11H)7 have bien obliterated, that there will 1k n big rise In prices of stocks and that crops will be plentiful. lie said: "The business situation is on n very substantial basis. . All It needs is it realization on the part of the farmer, whose Ultcrullty for labor and the pur chase of material will contribute; to ward sound conditions. 'The producing and consuming pow er of the country is responsible for re hahllltatlon of Industry, and no special financiers cau be credited with this condition. "I do not think the outcome of tariff legislation is of so much importance ns the outcome of the crops. Good weath er will do more for us than anything. "I believe that the prosperity of the country depends more today than ever before on tile crops and the liberality with which the farmer treats his ground that Is to say. the liberality with which lie purchases his supplies and employs laltor. "I ant glad to note that confidence Is eturnlng. I saw evidences of that everywhere on my last trip out west. There had been a change of sentiment "" ""( ive husino.s men who believe that railroads Help develop a country. The feeling Is now rather I widespread that the panic of 1!I07 was wilhnut any real reason. It will be , ,, , ., . , , ml-v " l"c.s1ion of time when business "will lie restored to its former basis. Now we have a great deal of Idle luonev been use Ininrovenioiit hns not ! yet reached all avenues of business. The dancer of having too much idle money Is just as great as having ton many Idle men." "Do you share Mr. Hill's views that the people are not planting enough wheal and Hint we may in the next few years have a wheat fanilneV" "There Is plenty of land which will grow line wheal crops that lias never been touched. Much of it is to our north, and there are thousands of miles In Siberia that will some day grow wheal. No I do not think there is any cause for Mr. Hill's alarm about a wheat famine."

Davenport of Oneida county In a letter to Lieutenant Gov ernor White declines the appointment to serve on the joint legislative com mission appointed to investigate the quest Ion of direct nominations and re port to the next legislature. Senator Davenport was the only di reet nomination advocate selected for the commission. Ho assisted in draft ing the so called Hinman-Green direct nominations hill, embodying the plan of Governor Hughes which was de feated In both houses of the last legis lature. He says In his letter: "I am on record In the satiate In op position to the appointment of this commission on the ground thnt all the information needed by any body has either been gathered already or Is . easily accessible. "I think still that the proposed in- 1 vcstigatlon W a waste of the public funds. It seems to me a time for re treuchment and not for profligacy of expenditure which can serve no use- fill purpose."

Increase Ordered In Import Tax on Stout, Ale, Beer and Porter. Senate Finishes Agricul tural Schedule. Washington. June 1. Agreements were reached In the senate upon many sections of the tariff bill, and the par agraphs relating to agriculture were til disposed of. Mr. Thieon opposed the proposed ln reases over the rates of the house illl In duties on bacon and hams, lard, fresh beef, etc.. and Mr Aldrich sur prised the senate by withdrawing the committee amendments, saying that he believed the house rates, although be low those of the Dlngley law rates, were protective to those Industries. The committee on finance had rec ommended an increase from 4 to i cuts a pound on bacon and hams, and Mr. Itacou opposed these amendments. After Mr. Itacou had declared that the proposed Increases on bacon nnd hams, lard, fresh meat, veal, mutton, pork, etc.. would endanger the welfare of the Republican party Mr. Aldrich smilingly declared that as "he had the welfare of the Republican party at heart" he would withdraw the com mittee amendment. This action came as n surprise to many senators, and Mr. Aldrich ex plained that he had taken this, action because he wanted to curtail the de bate and did not believe the lower duty provided by the house on these irtieles would nlfcct the importations. "If I believed." said Mr. Aldrich, t that every item of tills bill raised the , price ot the article nucctcd then I hould cease to be a protectionist." "1 have no question whatever Hint the rates on these articles are protec- live." said Mr. Aldrich. "I am not ! failing in my duty as a protectionist in I mauing tins change. At 4 cents a pound there is no danger of any large Importations of bacon and ham in this country. When the Wilson bill was In operation with a duty of 3 cents a pound there were no Importations. There is no possibility that there will be large Importations of lard under a duty of 1L. cents a pound, as fixed by the house. There was no increase in those Importations under the Wilson bill. "It Is not possible," Mr. Aldrich In sisted, "to say that in making these l eductions we have abandoned the pro tective principle.'' Obtaining permission to reconsider the action of the senate in adopting the finance committee's nmendmauts Increasing the duties on bacon, hams and lard, Mr. Aldrich formally with drew the amendments, and the lower duties of the house bill were agreed to. Mr. Itacou of Georgia moved to re consider the paragraph on fresh meat and game, but the senate refused to do so by a vote of 40 to 32, nnd the paragraph as amended by the fiunnce committee was accepted. Stout, ale. beer and porter were giv en an increase of duty from 40 to 4." cents when in bottles, etc., and from 20 to 25 cents per gallon when in bulk.

Notwithstanding these lin j portatlons very few cars were run. ' Tlteelwefl ill tin. lirlniln- nf lint sitrtlre j breakers here, sympathizers of the striking street car men made demon strations at the barns whwe the new j men are quartered, and many arrests I were made by the police. A crowd of strikers attacked Leslie ! Snow, a motornian, who drew a re volver and fired live bullets Into the crowd. The police rescued hint In time to save him from serious Injury. One of the chief demonstrations was made at the West Philadelphia barn when the strike breakers under heavy police guard began taking out cars. X squad of mounted police had to charge the crowt repeatedly before It dis persed. Finally the cars were started, but they ran almost empty the entire length of the route, while spectators along the sidewalks made seofflrg re marks. Mayor. Heyburn stated that he would swear In 10.000 extra policemen if nec essary and keep the ears running for the convenience of the public. The public will be accommodated, the may or said. If the "city has to take over 'the rapid transit lines and run them itself with the firemen, the police nnd the extra police." At a meeting of strikers John J. Murphy, president of the Central La bor union, pledged the support of tho Central Labor union to the trolley men. "If the Rapid Transit company don't come to time by Thursday." he said, "there will be a general strike de clared by Friday. We will parade on Itroad street on Saturday and show them our strength. "The elevated and subway men as well as the power house men are ready to Join us. and as for my own union, the Melal Workers. 1 can say that If they don't get in line 1 will let the lights go out." RAILROAD TO ARBITRATE. Labor Commissioner Neill Unable to Settle Georgia Strike. Atlanta. (ia June 1. Vnalile to agree upon the terms of settlement, the oilieials of the Georgia railroad and of the l'.rolherliood of Firemen have Invoked arbitration under the Krdmau law. Commissioner of Labor Neill and Chairman Knapp of the Interstate com merce commission notified both parties to the dispute to select an arbitrator within five days. These two men will select a third. The disagreement came over the re tention of negroes. The firemen first demanded the dismissal of all negroes. This was refused flatly. The firemen then proposed that negroes now em ployed or who were employed prior to April 10 should be retained. They de manded that all white firemen should have seniority over all negroes. In addition, they asked that at no time should the number of negrooB cmpkjycd exceed Lr per cent of the white firemen on the company's pay roll. If at any time the number of negroes employed dropped below 2." per cent no more were to be employed. It is said that the Georgia railroad might have consented to this but for the opposition of the terminal com pany. All other disputed points and de- mauds were conceded except the sen j Iori.v ,,f white men and the limitation to negroes employed. BANKER ESCAPES JAIL.

GLOOM SPREADS OVER GERMANY Nearly a Hundred Feet of the En velope and Frame Destroyed When Mammoth Dirigible Strikes Tree and Falls. Goepplngen. Germany, June 1. Count Zeppelin is in despair and all Germany Is in gloom over the disaster to the. new Zeppelin airship, which crashed Into a tree here after making a record flight of S. miles in thirty-seven hours. The damage to the ship Is much more serious than at first thought. The envelope was torn, and It was thought that the Injury could be re paired and that the vessel would pro ceed toulght. A more careful exam ination, however, disclosed the fact that the prow was broken and that a considerable time must elapse before the journey could be continued. The position of the craft is extreme ly unfavorable, the ground being very hilly. The bow rests on the ground, while the stern is about sixty-five feet in the air. A strong breeze sprang up toward evening, causing no little anx iety for the safety of the airship, which It was feared would be wrecked should a storm could up. After considerable labor and with the assistance of some of those who had gathered at the scene of the acci dent Count Zeppelin was able to shift the position of his airship a little and thus give better protection from the wind. That the collision was a heavy one Is indicated by the broken and bent strips of aluminium lying about the ground and the half split brunches dangling from the tree trunk. When the accident occurred Count Zeppelin was landing for the purpose of replenishing his supply of Ix'ir.lne, which was nearly exhausted. The mo tors had already slopped, and the air ship was Hearing t lie ground on a meadow when a strong puff of wind drove the prow out of its course and against a pear tree. II struck with a great crash, smash ing the prow almost up to the front of the gondola and crushing the alumi nium stays Into a shapeless mass, which became inextricably enmeshed in Hie branches. Nearly a hundred feet of the envelope and frame was destroyed. Count Zeppelin Immediately caine to Goepiilngen in an automobile and tele graphed to l"l m for pioneers and to Friiylriclishafon for workmen t make repairs. Permanent repairs probably will re quire six weeks In order to get the ship to Mauzell. A new prow much shorter than the original one will lie constructed without the vertical steer ing planes. ROBERT T. LINCOLN STRICKEB Son of Martyr President Overcome by Heat at Unveiling. Hogdenville. Ky.. June 1. Hubert T. Lincoln, son of President Lincoln, was stricken by heat toward the close of the ceremonies of unveiling his fa ther's statue at Hogdenville. Mr. Lincoln, who is president of the Pullman Car company. Is sixty-six years old. and the tierce rays of tlie sun beating on the canvas over his head, the emotion Incident to the me morials and the fatigue of his journey almost unnerved him. He leaned heavily on the arm of Henry Watterson, who spoke at the exercises and later accompanied Mr. Lincoln to his private car. Mr. Lin coln soon was completely restored. His chief regret was that his illness pre vented his taking the three mile ride from Hodgenvllle to see the cabin wherein his father was born. TWO BOYS KILLED BY BOMB.
