PHIL. A. HAFNSm, PuHlsher. .lt'rT!ON' n YBAI- 14. lH. M fyond-clm mall matter. BUILDINO Of CITIM. The conference of national interest n the aubjectot the building of cities,. i waswngton, baa taken up a big subject, says the Buffalo Express. Just what progress It can make with an Important problem remains to be aeen. We all realize that almost no cities are built aa they should be. Al most no cities are built In clreum stances that will permit them to be built as they should be. The few ex ceptions are cities like Gary, lnd.. which Is built from nothing to a full frown community at once. Most cities are merely a matter of growth. They have small beginnings, and as the community grows It provides for Us Immediate needs as they arise. The small community canot afford to look very far ahead. A comparatively few years at the most Is all that can be considered. So when the community outgrows the needs for which It pro vided a few years before, it has sim ply to do the work over again on a little larger scale. If the modern city could be planned and built at the out set on a scale which would probably provide for its needs many years ahead, then it would avoid many of the evils from which the average city suffers. And It could safeguard Its own rights and have the enjoyment of many improved conditions which would be very difficult and very costly to obtain at the present time. FOUR UNDER FIRE OLAVIS CRITICISES SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR AND FIRST ASSISTANT EENNETT. PRESIDENT ORDERS REPORT Cunningham Claims Cases In Alaska Will le Fully Investigated Now in the Interior Department. Washington, D. C Richard A. Balllnger, secretary of the interior; Frank Pierce, assistant secretary; Fred Bennett, commissioner of the genernl land office, and Henry H. Schwartz, chief of the field service, are the four officials whose actions in the Alaska coal land cases are so se verely criticised in the report submit ted to President Taft at Beverly by L. R. Glavis, chief of field division In the service of the Interior depart ment. Notwithstanding the sincere efforts which have been made to keep the Glavis report a secret, information ob tained indicates that the criticism or charges preferred by Glavis were com munlcated officially to the Interior de partment Wednesday by President Taft. The president's message con tained a demand for full Information concerning every step that has been taken by the department In the ad ministration of the Cunningham claim case. Commissioner Bennett of the land office is busy preparing a reply Now in Interior Department. Some of the officials who have been Amid many complaints that profes- slons are overcrowded and trades i over-supplied with workmen, it is re- drawn into the Balllneer-Plnchot con freshing to learn that there are educa- ' test expect the developments to be of tlonal branches badly undermanned 1 a sensational character.

Court Decision Is Cause Judge Holds That Company Cannot Is Forced to Arbitrate, Pittsburg, Pa. Following the court decision that the car works strike could not be forced to arbitration, deputy sheriffs, for the first time since the strike began, are carrying loaded repeating riot rifles. A commissary wagon leaving the car plant to bring provisions for the troopers was also guarded by a heavy detachment of men to prevent attack by hungry strikers. Deputies report that they were fired on repeatedly late Tuesday night by a party on Norwood Point, a quar ter of a mile from the plant. The searchlight was turned In that direction, but when the troops arrived the men had fled. Car Service to Plant Stopped. The Pittsburg Railway company stopped running cars over O'Dono. van's bridge, and employes said ser vice to the car plant would be aban doned until the strike Is over. At noon the state troopers started a house-to-house search among the strikers for firearms. With the strikers In their present state of excitement, it Is feared the decision of Judge McFarlan will act as a veritable bomb among them and cause a fresh outbreak of rioting. HURRIMRN STILL ILL WIZARD SAYS HIS RETURN FOR A CURE AND NOT FOR WORK. It TALKED FHEELY ABOUT HIMSELF Qenlus of Finance, With His Usual Optimism, Discusses Things Trivial and Pertinent 8atlsflsd with Trip Abroad. New York City. Edward Harri man, genius of finance, leader of men and master builder of railroads, cams back to the United States, while the financial world stood on Its tlp-toe-i tn anxiety and expectancy. He came back as he left, on June 1 last, a sick, tired man, seeking health. Surrounded by his family and physl clans at his magnificent, though un completed summer home at Arden-on the-Hudson, he has began the "after cure" which he needs after the enerv ating baths and dletion treatment he underwent at the Austrian resort, Bad Gastien. How long he will remain In seclusion, how long It will be before he resumes the active direction of his vast railroad Interests, depends solely upon his health. He arrived feeble, face gaunt and nurses, supervisors and directors of t tion of the government's side of the physical education, supervisors of in. struction for playground work and for instructors In athletics was Increased steadily until now It far exceeds the supply. The overturning of a motor boat was the cause of the drowning of four persons at Coshocton, O. Small power craft have become so popular that "landlubbers" are in need of warning concerning the dangers of fast going on the water. Motorboats are mere cockleshells which sink under the weight of their machinery when they capsize; and their lightness make's them extremely sensitive to sudden alterations in weights. There should be air chambers at the bow and stern to provide buoyancy in emergencies, after the manner in which metal row boats and sailing boats are con structed. Bolivia is said to have assumed a defiant attitude, refusing to apologize to Argentina for the affronts offered to the iatter's diplomatic representa tive because of the boundary line de cision. Is Bolivia acting the part of a spoiled and sulky child, or is it the prevailing idea down there that the only arbitration which "goes" is that in which the finding is on the Bolivian side? Extreme summer heat is a very hard thing to bear and entails real suffering, but the number of deaths and prostrations from the beat bear a very small proportion to the total population. This is a fact which ought to encourage people to cultivate en durance, which really lessens the at fllction as much as worry and dwe'. ling upon it increases suffering. Alaska cases has removed the field of nctive hostilities to a zone entirely within the interior department. Hi's appeal for a postponement of the hearings in the Cunningham case un til more evidence can be gathered to protect the government's interests is exactly in line with the efforts which nave been made by the forest service for several months. As Glavis is a subordinate official of the general land office and thus in the service of the interior depart ment, the open fighting now seems to be limited to the confines of this de partment. There is no doubt that Glavis will have all the support that Forester Pinchot and his assistants can give, but they will not appear in the controversy until the case reaches a stage where their testimony will be demanded. The visit of Glavis to President Taft marks the third official protest ho has made asalnst the interior de partment's plan of having the Cun ningham claims brought to a decision. In June and acaln in July he urged the officials of the land office not to press the claim case. Mr Bennett paid no attention to the complaints, but Glavis was not charged with in subordination. This action led to the report that the land office did not care to antaconlze Glavis. Later, however, Glavis was removed from the supervision of the Cunnine ham cases and they were put in the charge of Special Agent Sheridan. He is now actinc for the government In these cases and is proceeding with the collection of evidence against the Cunningham claimants.

Michael Law less, who was stabbed In the heart Saturday night, and who underwent an operation In which 19 stitches were taken In that vital organ, still lives. The remarkable operation was per formed early Sunday morning by Dr. Walter C. O. Klrchner, superintendent of the city hospital, after the patient was nearer death than lsually comes to one who survives. Monday the patient was still living and, while Lawless' condition is pre carious, hospital physicians say that ne has a chance for his life. In the fight he was stabbed in the chest with a pocket knife. A physl clan made an examination and tern porarlly bound the wound. Tho pa tlent was hurried direct to the city hospital reaching that institution at 12:45 o'clock Sunday morning, nearly an hour after the wound was in Dieted. Dr. Klrchner took charge of the case. He made a careful examination While the patient had lost a great amount of blood anil was much weak ened, the doctor noted his robust and perfect physical condition and thought there was a chance to save his life. Sections of Ribs Removed. His examination revealed that the knife blade had penetrated the heart itself and had made an opening nn Inch and a half long, With every pulsation of the heart blood spurted from It. An opening above the heart was made by the removal of sections of two ribs, and the action of the heart was plainly visible to the surgeon and his assistants. It was seen that the knife blade had penetrated the peri enrdium, the fiber that protects the endocardium, known to laymen as the heart sack, and the endocardium, or Inner heart Itself. Owing to the pulsations of the heart, Dr. Klrchner used an lnstru ment called a tenaculum, with which the heart Itself was seized and held while four stitches were made In the endocardium. Then eight stiches were taken in the pericardium, or the outer wall, and the heart was dropped back into the cavity. THRU BUSINESS BLOCKS IN THE - HIART OF CITY DISTROYS.D IN CONFLAGRATION.

With the prospect of Indian rebel lion seeking expression ot hated rule in assassination, Great Britain can now sympathize with Russia in that country's terrorist agitation by the onarchlsts. Hitherto England has been safe from attacks by this .class, on ac count of the comparative asylum af forded them. Now the danger has come from another source, and the nation has awakened with a shock from Its dream of immunity from po litical assassins.
