BUILDINGS IN RADIUS OF BLMMAGED Another Mysterious Explosion Occurs at Chicago. Chicago, June 29.—The cause of the explosion which wrecked a telephone exchange in the business district, did J100.000 damage to property, Inflicted Injuries which may be fatal to one man and slightly wounded fourteen others, is still unexplained. After hours of careful investigation the po lice were unable to determine whether the detonation was the work of per sons desiring to harm the telephono company or another of a series of bombs which have marked the prog« resH of what is known a9 the "gam« biers' war." A number of employes of the telephone company are on a Btrike. The principal damage was to the conduit through which the conveying cables of the telephone company pass to tho Central Exchange. The Chi cago Title and Trust building, sixteen stories high, next door to the tele phone exchange, was among the build ings damaged. Fifteen cables, which control 25,000 telephones, were torn and twisted by the explosion. One of the theories on which tho police ar working, although they are inclined to believe that the telephono strike has some connection with the outrage, is that the refusal of the telephone company to permit its wires to be used in the transmission of bets on races has brought It under the ban of persons connected with the gambling fraternity. Assistant Chief of Police Schuettler declared that dynamite was the ex plosive used. Few ot the buildings within a radius of a block escaped severe damage. "Broken windows for two blocks around testified to tho force of the explosion. TAFT ACTING AS THE JUTCE Hears Arguments on What Consti tutes Whisky.
