STRIVE TO EXCLUDE
FINN ATHLETES
Russian Government Proposes to Elim
inate Tbem From Competition in
, ' Olympic Games.
' 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.

reading to Dr. Frederick T. Simpson of

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. Those conversant with the
American viewpoint, however, bel'eve
President Wilson i determined that in
asmuch as there .could not be pacifica
tion in Mexico unless the constitutional
ists accepted any plan that might be
adopted here, the interests of peace
would not be conserved by a continu
ance of mediation negotiations.
Dickering in Washington.

department for a long conference with

tango, and I would tango, only the music
puts me out and the girl gets in my

Joseph Deaton of Groveton, K. H., Paid
$453 to, Court at Island Pond.
Island Pond, June 20. 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.

St. Louis, June 20. The river steamer
Majestic, the largest excursion boat on
the Mississippi river, struck the cribbing
of the waterworks tower near here this
morning and sank within 10 minutes. Oi
the 43 persons on board the steamer at
the time 24 have not been accounted for
and they aw believed to have been
drowned. All of the 24 were members

ton, 111., and headed for M. Ixiuis, 20
miles down the river, .
, The boat struck squarelj' against the
cribbing of the new intake tower of the
St. Louis waterworks and went to the
bottom. The Majestic carried six life-
boats, in one of which 19 of the crew and
others escaped to the Missouri shore.
Six of the ships officers remained on
the upper deck and were rescued an hour
afterwards.- The water did not com

WOMAN'S BODY TAKEN
FROM MOHAWK RIVER
Authorities About Schenectady N. Y,
Are Engaged in Efiort to Fined
Clues to Probable Murder.
Schenectady, N. Y., June 20. A part
of the body ot an unidentified young
woman, wliom authorities believe had
been murdered, was raised from the bot
tom of the Mohawk river late yester-
dey by fishermen. The upper part of
the trunk from the thirtj lumbar ver
terbrae and the legs from about midway
between the knees and thighs had been
hacked away. The rest of the body had
been wrapped in oil cloth, securely
sewed in a burlap sack, and weighted
down with a twenty pound slab of con
crete.
City and county officials hope that
white overskirt and the bottom part
of a jetticoat which were found in the
sack, may help to establish the vio-
ms identity. A minute description ot
these articles will be sent broadcast im
mediately. -
Coroner E. Holcomb Jackson, who is a
physician, said that his examination in
dicated that the woman was about 25
years old and weighted 150 pounds. He
Iso said he had found a sliirht scar on
the right side of the abdomen and that
t was not the kind of a mark an op
eration for appendicitis would have left, i
Officers dragged the river in a futile
attempt to locate missing parts of the
body. 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. He declared the
body had been cut to pieces by one-un
familiar with anatomy.
The river is not navigable at the point
where the body was found except for
motor boats and smaller eraft.

dence in Heifer Shooting Case.
Rutland, June 20. The shooting of a
valuable registered yearling Holstein
heifer, belonging to Charles Fish of Mid
dletown Springs ,the carcass of which
was lugged away, called State's Attor
ney B. L. Stafford and Deputy Sheriff
D. A. Barker to that town yesterday.
and although they found no elews in
this case they discovered the carcass of
a young buck deer, illegally killed, at
the home of Koy W right in the town
of Poultney. Mr. Wright waa absent
and no arrests were made. ,
The skin, head and legs of Mr. Fish's
heifer were found last Sunday ia the
pasture which ia located about a mile
and a half southwest of Middletown
village by Fred McLaughlin. The ani
mal had been shot through the head with
a large calibre rifle and from the trail
of blood it is thought that it travelled
some distance after being wounded It
was skinned where it fell and the car
cass caried away.
The affair had been kept quiet in the
hope that some clew might be found
but yesterday the state's" attorney de
cided to mske a search. Accompanied
hv IJemitv Hurlcer he went, to fh hmian
of Roy iVb ite one room structure
sbuot three quarters of a mile from
the travelled highway over the line in
the town of Poultney.
The men found Mrs. white at home
and after they had announced that
they were going to search the premises
she feigned illness and lay down on a
mattress which was spread on the floor.
This made the searchers suspicious and
after pulling the mattress aside they
found some loose boards in the floor.
These when removed revealed the car
cass of n young buck - deer which had
been cut up and packed in jars, set into
the earth for cooling purposes.
Mrs. White refused to offer an expla
nation as to the presence of the deer
meat but later she showed the officers
where the skin of the animal was bur
ied outside the cottage. Before they left
the woman had sufficiently recovered
from her illness to smoke a cigarette.

Vienna Proposed to Improve Street Con
veyance System.
Vienna, June 20. The city council of
Vienna is proposing to float a loan of
$73,000,000 at once, to be expended main
ly upon the development of existing
municipal ownership undertakings. It is
proposed to spend $:)0,000,000 on sub
ways around the congested districts of
the inner city, where up to the present
there has been only an indifferent ser
vice of horse omnibuses. Yhe 'bus busi
ness, which the city purchased at about
fifty cents on the dollar from a bank
rupt private company, has been run at
a great loss each year. ienna's ex
periments in ether fields of municipal
ownership, however, have been more suc
cessful. The electric light and power
plant has paid a clear profit of two mil
lion during the past year, a return of
about II per cent, on the city's invest
ment, but it has been done in the face
of the general complaints that electrici
ty is dearer 111 V icnna than in almost
