EXPECT VICTIM TO GIVE STORY But at Present , John C Slavin of New York Is Still Unconscious JOHN McGRAW KEEPS SILENT But Lambs Club," ..Where .Slavin Was, Hurt, May Suspend -McGraw , i' lTew York, Aug. 11. Several wit nesses have been summoned by Dis trict Attorney Swann to appear to day in his office to testifly concern ing the incident in the Lambs club last Sunday morning when John C. Slavin, well-known comedian, received a frac tured skull and other injuries. Mr. Slavin has since been unconscious m St. Luke's hospital, and so far the manner in which he was injured hag remained a mystery. Physicians at the hospital early to day expected that Mr. Slavin would rally, sufficiently to give an account of the alleged fracas, from which John J. McGraw, manager of the New York giants, is reported to ' have emerged second at fistcuffs with a fellow club member. A. O. Brown, head of the house com mittee of the Lambs, said the ques tion of suspension of Mr. McGraw from membership would be. considered at a meeting of the committee to-morrow. Hf said Mr. McGraw had just been re instated, after a three month's sus pension. Mr. McGraw has not yet made any statement regarding the incident on Sunday morning.

Tha eon dition bf th Aroostook cbunt, Ma. potato crops is now 90 per cnt of nor mal and forecasts 23,895,000 ouahels, against 24,480,000 bushels last year, ac coring to the New England crop ie port issued to-day by A. Sanders, field agent of the bureau of crop estimates of the United States department of agriculture. The five-year average is given at 23,300,000 bushels., The crop elsewhere in Maine and Aew England, with the exception of Khode Island and eastern Massachu setts, has grown well. July drought in the latter section and too much rain in Rhode Island hurt the crop in these sections. Ivew England s commercial apple crop is Teported heavier than last year in all states but Maine. Peaches are reported a failure in Xcw Ilamp shire, fair in Massachusetts and pro duction very small elsewhere. Pearl are light in Maine, average crop in Rhode Island and good in other New England states. Connecticut valley onions forecast yield of 02 per cent, with excellent growth continuing. Tobacco in the same region has grown very ooorly because of cool and wet weathej, but the crop is reported as capable of rap id improvement, and, with favorable weather, good yields may result. Hay in Maine and Vermont is bet ter than forecast earlier but still be low average, while elsewhere it is near ly a full crop. Oata in Maine, Xew Hampshire and Vermont, .improved during July and are near a full crop, but are only fair in the other three states. Com is about an average crop in northern New- England, but is a very poor prospect in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut. - WILL PASS OTTO HISTORY. A E. F.

Upon roll call only two officers were absent, Ruth and sen tinel, whose seats were ably supplied. Judge Stanley Wilaon and his wife and Sylvia Corns tock were initiated into the mysteries.

Delicious ice cream and cake were served and the supply of cake being in excesa of the demand, the surplus was auctioned off by Judge Wilaon, which enriched the treasury several dollars.
