SECOND DAY OF COLD SPELL
Lowest Temperature for June 24 in
Last 12 Years.
A temperature of BO degrees, or five
degrees lower than that at tho same time
yesterday, ushered In today In the sec
ond day of a cool spelt that Is In strange
contrast with tho more seasonable hot
wave of last week.
At noon tho mercury registered 74 de
grees. Even this Is unusually low for this
tlmo of year.
Tho temperature of 63 equals tho low
record for tho date. A similar tempera
turo was recorded In 1902 and 1003. Tho
cause ot tho frigid weather that elected
to appear on tho second day of summer
Is duo to an area of high preesuro over
tho Great Lakes. What, In turn, causes
that condition, the weather man Is not
prepared to say.
Moreover, Mr. Bliss sees no prospect of
change for tho present Tho wind con
tinues from tho northwest, and there Is
little chanco of tho mercury rising until
The average temperature yesterday was
64, a mark 11 degrees lower than that of
the samo day last year and 3 degrees be

forfeited his "right to visit the Panama-
Pacific exposition at city expense.
Select Councilman, Dr. William 8.
Bacon, of the 4Uh Ward, has withdrawn
his name from the roster of the com
mittee on account of Illness In his family.
It is understood that at least four more
members have withdrawn their names,
but no Information has been given of
ficially and frenzied shifts In the person
nel are being: made to complete the rank
of the junketers before July C.
Reasons for tho remarkablo rejections
of places so eagerly sought a few weeks
age are causing considerable speculation
In City Hall. Apprehension that some
thing might happen to the bell on the trip
or that the stigma of the junket may be
injected into the political campaign this
fall Is declared to bo responsible for the
withdrawal of all members who may re
gard themselves as candidates for office
In the coming elections.
President McCurdy'a withdrawal was
expected. He has consistently been op
posed to removing tho bell from Phila
delphia and made public announcement
to that effect In Common Council when
the junket waa first proposed.
President Ransley, of Select Council,
and Chairman Connelly are understood to
be entirely "too busy" to make the trip
at this time. Connelly is an aspirant for
tho City Sollcitorshlp. Ransley la ex

Tho Jarring note that the JIM personal
assessment on committeemen injected
into the excursion Is said to have hurt
the sensibilities of some of the Council
men even more than the prospect of the
bell falling to pieces on the trip.
As Presidents Ransley and McCurdy
were ex officio members of the commit
tee and increased the number to 23, there
are now two extra places In addition to
other vacancies in the committee.
