Vienna, Feb. 6.—The present ses

to an end aft?r a scene of turbulence
extraordinary even for an assembly
where violent outbreaks are compara
The trouble, which arose from the
•Id racial feeling between the Ger
mans and the Czechs, broke out ihir
log the debate on a government bill,
the object of which was to reconcile
those difforences. The radical Czech
obstructionists, who have been hin
dering the debate on this measure
for several days past with a conttnu
ous din from drums and tin whistles,
so exasperated the Germans that the
opposing deputies came to close quar
ters and a fierce scrimmage ensued.
One of the radical Czech deputies, a
man named Speczek, who has been
particularly violent in his obstruc
tion. was captured and whipped until
he howled for mercy. Another Czech
was bitten by a German on the cheek
and sustained an ugly wound and
black eyes and sore heads were nu
merous. The premier. Baron von
Bienerth, seeing the useiessness of at

The departure of the ministers was
followed by another free flght in

In the panic that ensued when the

from which the girls had to Jump,
directing them how to make their fall
as easy as possible and actually catch

Kansas Professor Experimenting
With Explosive Gases.
ONE CAUSE OF EXPLOSIONS.
Mine Disasters Can Be Prevented,
Erasmus Ha worth Believes, by
Eliminating Carbon Monoxide, a
Deadly Deoxidized Gas—Most Ex
plosions Due to it, He Says.
What causes explosions in mines
thnt have been tested nnd are suppos
ed to be absolutely safe? Professor
Erasmus Hnworth. head of the geo
logical department of the University
of Kansas and state geologist, has
f)ecn experimenting for the last three
months in Kansas mines and has
reached many interesting conclusions.
To aid in further experiments a bill
appropriating $3,0)0 was recently in
troduced in the Kansas legislature.
Professor Haworth believed it would
"It's the big problem cf the coun
try," Professor Ilaworth said the other
night at the Union depot in Kansas
City. "A mine explosion has become
so common that a hundred or more
lives have to be sacrificed before the
public will pay any attention to it. It
Is noticed, too, that the explosion gen
erally occurs in mines that have been
"Last summer I came to the conclu
sion thnt we could make experiments
In Kansas Just as well as elsewhere.
The laboratories at Lawrence offered
excellent opportunities for carrying on
the work. We have been experiment
ing ns to every conceivable way that
an explosion could possibly occur, and
the results of our experiments will be
received with interest all over the
The problem of financing the experi
ments caused the Kansas professor
some worry at first. But mine owners
became interested. The Central Coal
and Coke company of Kansas City
alone contributed $500 for the experi
ments when Professor Ilaworth ex
plained his plans. Then some funds
which had been appropriated for geo
logical experiments were added to the
subscriptions of the coal companies.
That made enough to begin operations.
Professor C. Young of the geological
department was sent to the Pittsburg
coal fields. He collected coal dust,
coal gas in bags, marsh gas, natural
gas and all forms of gas that contain
ed explosive elements. Experiments
demonstrated beyond doubt that car
bon monoxide la the cause of most ex
"The queer thing about it," said
Professor Ilaworth, "is the fact that
no one has noticed the effects of this
deadly gas In mines. At the mining
congress in Pittsburg last December I
was unable to find any scientist who
realized that carbon monoxide might
be the cause of the great disasters.
Carbon monoxide is a deoxidized gas.
At Lawrence we have found that the
gas will explode when a current of air
strikee the cavity In which it is con
"The Importance of the discovery
cannot be overestimated, for I'm con

KNIVES FOR ROOSEVELT.
President's Hunting Outfit Had to Un
dergo Remarkable Tests.
A special outfit of four knives has
been made in Boston for President
Roosevelt to use while on his hunting
expedition in Africa In the spring.
There are two hunting knives—a heavy
brush knife, for cutting through dense
undergrowth, and a skinning knife.
They are made of the highest grade
American steel and are razor tempered
and razor edged.
The knives were ordered for the
president by United States Civil Serv
ice Commissioner John A. Mcllheuny.
One specification was that they must
stand the test of cutting through at
one blow a quautlty of beef and a beef
bone as large as the upper arm bone of
a man and that the one cut must go
clear through without turning the edge
of the knife and chipping the bone.
The knives have passed the tfst.
ASTRAL BODY'S LONG TRIPS.
Woman Said She Visited Wales Thrioe
While Remaining In St. Louis.
Mrs. Jordan W. Lambert, wife of the
millionaire chemical manufacturer of
St. Louis, recently related one of the
most remarkable stories of psychic
phenomena ever told. She said she
Journeyed to Wales from her own
home three times to bind up the in
jured arm of a boy hurt in the slate
mines there. She also gave him money
for the relief of his needs. This was
in United States coin, and the boy ex
changed It at the steamship offices in
London for English coin. The ex
change was proved in London later.
All of this time Mrs. I^unbert was
In her own home and she thinks en
tirely conscious throughout. She her
self relates the experience, prefaced by
spirit communication between Joe
Wentwortb, a spirit guide, and herself.

NAVAL COMMISSION MEETS
Expected to Recommend Change* in
Washington, Fob. 6.—Perfect effi
ciency In military action is President
Roosevelt's idea of what the organi
zution of the navy department should
provide and which, in his opinion, it
now lacks. Undei his call for that
purpose a commission of eight men
of wide experience in naval matters
met here to consider needs of the
navy. The commission consists of
two former secretaries of the navy—
Paul Morton of New York and Asso
ciate Justice William H. Moody of
the supreme court of the United
States: Judge A. G. Dayton of West
Virginia, formerly of the house naval
affairs committee, and five retired
rear admirals, S. B. Luce, A. T. Ma
han, W. M. Folger, R. D. Evans and
W. S. Cowles, The president explicit
ly stated that he desired them to con
sider and report, first, the fundamen
tal principles of a system of organiza
tion and execution that will provide
and maintain an immediate prepared
ness for the battle fleet for any hos
tility in time of peace, and, second,
to specifically recommend changes
necessary in the present naval organ
ization that will accomplish this re
sult. The commission is to consider
strategic needs of the fleet and num
ber, location and facilities of navy
This commission met at the invita
tion of the president on Jan. 15 and
discussed naval administrative re-j
forms and approved Secretary New-'
berry's plans of administration, though
not considering that the present or-'
ganlzation of the navy department
provides that efficiency which should
at all times be maintained.
RACE QUESTION DISCUSSED
Warm Debate in Lower House of Mis
Jefferson City, Mo., Feb. 6.—After a
warm debate on the race question as
It affects politics in Missouri the
lower branch of the general assembly
disposed of a resolution providing for
the discharge of most of the negro
employes of the house by referring It
to a committee. The vote was 61 to
52, the balloting being on strict party
The resolution was caused by the
allegation that a negro employe of
the house had insulted a white em
ploye of the senate. Representative
Jesse J. Duncan presented the resolu
tion, which asked for the discharge of
all negro employes of the house ex
cept those whose duties Included the
cleaning of spittoons. A wide discus
sion of rave equality followed and
then a motion by Mi ram Lloyd of St.
Louis, referring the resolution to the
clerical force committee, prevailed.

A New Back for an Old One
How it Can Be Done u
The back aches at times with a dull,
indescribable feeling, making you
weary and restless piercing pains shoot
across the region of the kidneys, and
again the loins are so lame to stoop is
agony. No use to rnb or apply a plas

cannot reach the cause. Exchange the
bad back for a new and stronger one.
