' Helsingfords, Finland, June 20. The Russian government has determined to use "all its power to prevent Finland from competing in the Olympic games at Berlin next year as a nation. Gen eral Steyn, the governor general, win soon' issue a decree dissolving the Fin nish Olympic committee and if Russian officialdom has its way the Finnish ath letes will not be able to appear at Ber lin unless they enlist under the Bus ; sian flag. This action is partly due to the gener al Russian policy of supressing national aspirations, partly to a desire to have Russia make a better showing ,at Ber lin than she did at Stockholm in 1912. All who attended the games at Stock holm will remember the contest between the splendid delegation from the little Baltic province of Finland, and the far inferior representatives of the Russian nation. The Finns appeared under their own flag as a separate body, with a great assemblage of athletes, gymnasts, and swimmers, while the Finnish wom en who took part in the two last branches of the sports were, like the ladies from the other Scandinavian countries, one of the most attractive features of the occasion. . Among the eighteen prize-winning na tions Finland stood fourth with- fifty two points only Sweden, the United States and Great Britain beating her while Russia ranked only fifteenth, with six points to her credit. . Throughout the meeting there was constant friction between the Finns and Russians. The Russians resented the appearance of the flag of Finland among the others as though she was an independent nation. The trouble culminated in a scene in the royal box at the stadium during an evening concert of ' singing societies, when the Finnish choirs sang one of their national hvmns which contained "references to Russia as the "oppressor," and a Russian grand duke with his otn cers felt called upon to leave the box with ostentation. - Whether the Russian government will be able to prevent the rinns from run ning their own show at Berlin remains to be seen. M. Isyolsky, the Russian ambassador at I arm, is said to have re quested the Olympic committee to re fuse to recognize Finland, or to receive the Finnish delegate. Baron von Willo brand, but his arguments were without result. The only way by which Russian officials can carry their point would be to prevent the Finns from going to Berlin. If they could induce them to go . tinner the Kussian banner Russia would be one of the formidable competitors among tne nations. The President Tells Majority'Leader Un derwood That the Trust Plans -Must Be Pushed. ' Washington, .Tune 20. President Wil son and Majority Leader Oscar W. Un derwood,' after more than an hour's con ference yesterday, found they were still far from an agreement on- the neces sity for forcing trust legislation at this time. , Mr, ' Underwood 'went .to the White House and frankly told the president that there were many Democratic mem bers whose continuation in office was be ing ..endangered by their being held in Washington. They cannot go home to "mend their fences," even though there is no big legislation before the House. He told Wilson that it would be a great help to thesfe members if Congress could quit as soon as the appropriation bills are out of the way. The jiresident repeated his argument that business conditions demand that the uncertainty regarding 'trust legislation be disposed of at once. He also stated that the leaders in the Senate had promised to expedite mat ters, and lr. Underwood was forced to leave without any assurance other than that. , There- is a distinct possibility that the", president will find himself facing a re volt in Congress shortly. The member of the House are chafing under his in sistence that they remain here.

V WALSH CONFIDENT. Niagara, Falls, Ont., June 20.- Justice Lamar's memorandum to Emilio Rabasa, head of the Mexican delegation, announe ing that the United States "must insist on the acceptance of its plan for the pacification of Mexico is an ultimatum Unless the HuerlA delegates yield, me diation will end to-day or perhaps Moo day. , This is the firm determination of the L'nited States as it was conveyed to the mediators vesterdav. Ambassador Da Gama of Brazil and Minister Suarez of Chile asked the "American delegates If their position had changed in view of the Carranza-Villa split, and the reply was in the negative. it was an informal talk, but served to advise the mediators that the published statements o( the American and Huerta delegates, 'with tbeir opposite views on the type of man to be selected for provisional president defined clearly the unalterable attitide of the American government. Just what the policy of the United States would be in the event of the fail ure of the mediation or what disposition it would make of- the American trirops at Vera Cruz is unknown even to the American delegates. .The Huerta 'com missioners say they do not know wat course of, action General Huerta may pursue.

For having 1SI short trut in jwisseBsion, Joseph Deaton of (Jroveton, N. H., paid to the municipal court a hue of He and Joe Mc Laughlin, both of Groveton, fished Paul stream, one of the noted trout waters of Essex county. They came out of the woods with one fish basket containing six trout of lawful length. They left one basket in the woods; this basket contained 181 short trout, which had been dressed and the heads removed Deaton went back for this basket the following morning and was then appre hended bv the wardens. Some of the fish were not three inches long. State's Attorney Powell, in prosecut ing the case, exhibited wild trout exact Iv six inches long, and Iso secured some of the same length from the state hatch ery in order that the court might see fish of this length before they were mu tilated. From Deaton's basket he sorted out all trout, concerning the length of which there might be any question. All of the fish on which the fine was paid were less than five inches long. ,To re place these fish would cost the state not less than 100. Paul stream has had attention from both federal and state hatcheries. This fine is the latest of several that have been contributed to the state treas ury within a comparatively short time. Mayo Higgins of St. .lohnsburv paid f35. ("lemons Lamont of Guildhall $19, Henry Motiltrope of East Haven was fined $275 and costs of $.".n0, W, D.. Barnard and W. H. Stevens of Derby peid $20.04 each. Under the present law , none of these fines are available for use by the fish and game department, but go into the general fund. The fine paid hf Deaton is presumably the "largest ever imposed in Vermont for violation of the short trout statute. New Hampshire Ias been imposing heavy penalties for the past few years, having assessed a resident of Lyndonville some thing over $300, and a couple of citi zens of Essex county, angling near the base of Mt. Washington, contributed sum in the vicinity of $700 Upon being interviewed, Commission er Tjteomh said he would like to find 'Some less objectionable method of pro tecting the young trout to give them a chance to breed before being caught, and has under consideration a limit as to number that may be taken in one day, and continuing the maximum weight limit. Such an arrangement would en able the angler who is desirous of get ting a good basket of fish to keep a sufficient number of good ones, say 20 to So, and make it to lus advantage to restore the short ones to the waters. He also thinks that with an angler's license to furnish the fund to operate hatcher ies in every county it would be feasible to repeal the six-inch law provided the number limit is enforced.

Holcomb Jackson, who is a physician, said that his examination in dicated that the woman was about 25 years old and weighted 150 pounds.

Other officers will seek to learn whence came the concrete weight. It n pears to have been removes from a roadbed. The sutrjrestion that medical students might have dropped part of the body nto the river or fastened the sack to the fishermen's set lines was ridiculed by Coroner Jackson.
