I ( THE CITIZEN, FRIDAY, .JULY 22, 1010. W1LLAVERT STRIKE Pennsylvania Railroad Sit uation Is Clearing. REACH PEACE WORKING BASIS Result of Conferences Between Repre sentatives of Employocs and Offi cials Gives Promise of Early Ending of Wage Dispute. Philadelphia, July 10. The Pennsyl vania railroad strike cloud is beginning to clear. After the Joint committee of the con ductors' ami trainmen's unions on tlie Pennsylvania lines cast of Pittsburg had held conferences with General Mnnagcr Myers of the railroad com pany It was announced by both sides that a working basis of settlement had been agreed upon, many mlsunder Rtnndings cleared up and the probabil ity of n walkout in all likelihood averted. Olilcers of the railroad company de clared that the company had not yield ed nn Inch from the position which It has right along maintained. The union leaders of the conductors and train men likewise claimed that they had been entirely successful In getting the company to adopt such working condi tions as the men had been contending for. The crux of the dispute, as explained by n Pennsylvania railroad oUlcial, was: "Whether the company would pay for n ten hour day what It now pays for an eleven hour day, namely 54.04. This the company absolutely re fused to do, but agreed, as it said all along It would agree to do, to pay $3.03 for a ten hour day, allowing all higher rates for longer days stand as they are now. This has been the principal bono of contention right nlong, and the com pany long ago signified its entire will ingness to accept the $3,63 for a ten hour day, according to the new awnrd of the eastern federation of the train men." The trainmen explained that the mis understanding to which they have re ferred for the past two days concerned this very provision, and they said It was because of the misunderstanding on this iolnt that tlK?y requested the further conferences. They said that the railroad company had misunder stood them and that they had never fought to le paid $4.01 for a ten hour day. The union meu contended that all they had sought was the consent of the company to make a ten hour day the minimum itfisls of paying wages, thereby abolishing the present system of paying its men a fraction of n day's wages for a fraction of a day's serv ices. The men feel that they have won a substantial victory In getting the com pany to agree to make n ten hour day the minimum lmsls of a day's wnges. Grand Trunk Strike Begun. Montreal, July 10. A strike of all the conductors and trainmen on the Grand Trunk railway system went in to effect last night. The strike is the result of the failure to arrive at an amicable settlement with the company. Over 4,000 men are involved In the strike. DEOUGHT HITS CORN. Oklahoma and Kansas Crops Suffer From Heat. Chicago, July 10. Advices received from Oklahoma and Kansas told of serious damage to the corn crop by drought. Guthrie told of a total loss as a result of the fiercely hot weather. Klngtisher reported not better than half a crop expected, and Ponca City messages told of serious damage by hot and dry weather. Toukawn ad vices said the mercury was up to 104 uud the lle'ls burned. In northern Kansas the prospects were fair, but hi the central and southern sections rain Is needed, and the corn crop prospects have been ma terially lessened. NOW FEAR FOUL FLAY. Missing New Theater Paymaster May Be Victim of Robbers. New York, July 10. Olllclals of the New Theater have asked the police to search for Walter J. Uullwlnkel, act ing paymaster, missing since Friday afternoon. Bullwlnkel, who enjoyed the full contldence of his associates, had near ly $l,0Ofl of the theater payroll with him, ana It is feared that this fact be came known and that ho became the victim of foul play. FOREST FIRE HAVOC. Millions of Dollars Loss Threatened fn Alberta. Gnlgary, Alberta, July 10. Forest fires uro assuming alarming propor tions.

Ornithological puzzles nro the pen guins with their curiously shapod winds suggest that the penguins nro descendants of birds which used their wings rather than legs In the pursuit of prey under water, and as the strug gle Intensified between the competing individuals the most expert at this sort of swimming would get the most food and oust their less successful rivals. The winners gained advnn tago over their neighbors In propor tion as their wings improved as swimming organs, and inversely and of necessity became less stilted to per form the work of flight. In all other birds the feathers though shed annually are more or loss gradually displaced; but In tho penguins the new feathers all start Into being at the same time and thrust out tho old feathers upon their tips so that these come away In groat flakes. Whereas In all birds save penguins the now feathers as they thrust their way through the skin end In pencll-llko points, formed by In vesting shenthB, in tho penguins theso sheaths are open at the tips and at tached by their rims to the roots of tho old feathers, and hence these are held to their successors until they have attained a sufficient length to Insure protection against cold. The curious device for retaining the warmth aff6rded by the old feath ers until tho new generation can fill tholr places Is apparently due to the fact that penguins nro natives of tho antarctic regions, although some now Inhabit tropical seas. A Rothschild Anecdote. Baron Rothschild was onco caught In a predicament that many people experience dnlly, and that Is getting Into a conveyance of some kind and then not having tho money to pay tho fare. The driver of the omnibus Into which Rothschild entered demanded his fare, and the Baron, feeling In his pockets, discovered that ho had no change. The driver was very angry. "What did you get In for, If you have no money?" "I am Baron Rothschild," explained the great capitalist, "and there Is my card." The driver scornfully tossed tho card away. "Never heard of you be fore," said be, "and don't want to hear of you again. "What I want Is your fare." The banker was In great haeto, "Look here. I've an order for a mil lion," ho said; "give me the change." And he preferred a coupon for that amount. Tho driver stared and the pas sengers laughed. Fortunately a friend of tho Baron entered the omnibus at the moment, and, taking In the situa tion, inrmodlately paid the fare. Tho driver, realizing his mistake and fool ing remorseful, said to the Baron: "If you want ton francs, air, I don't miod lending them to you on my own account." Buffalo Courier. Electrc-Cheslcal Colors. The preparation of mineral and artificial organic colors by tho air of electricity has recently made consid erable progress, and It Is suggested that tho products of this now Industry may eventually replace thoee derived from coal-tar. Among the colors now produced In commercial Quantities by the employment of the electric cur rent are vermilion, Scheelo's green, cadmium yellow, Japanese red. cerise, or cherry red, Berlin green and zinc white, besides a number of organic colors. Tho process consists essenti ally In sending an electric current through a solution containing tho ele ments required for the production, by precipitation, of the coloring matter desired. A Vanishing Lake. Fresh evidence of tho disappear ance of Lake Tchad In Central Africa has lately been accumulated. Cap tain Tllho of the Anglo-French Bound ary Commission says that the form and area of the lake have undergono groat changes since the explorations' of Barth and Nachtlgal, 40 or 50 years ago. It Is now navigable only In cer-1 tain places, and boats frequently run aground. Tho tendency seems to be toward tho development of a vast marsh on tho site of tho lake, although half a century ago Its great waves In stormy weather gave it tho appear ance of an ocean. The Power of Niagara. In a paper read before the Institu tion of Electrical Engineers at Man chester, England, recently, the maxi mum output of tho live power-stations at Niagara Falls was stated at 320,000 horsepower, distributed over a dis tance of 150 miles. This distance will soon bo increased to 250 miles, nnd then, said the authors of the paper, such a system of distribution will bo In operation as would, if It were In stalled In England, supply the whole country with the electrical energy it required, from one central station. Another Element In the Stars. Sir David Gill recently communi cated to tho Royal Society a paper by Joseph Lunt, In which tho author shows that tho rare chemical element europium Is represented by strong lines in the spectra of tho light from tho stars Arcturus and Pollux.

DAVIS IS ATHLETICS' STANDBY Mack's First Backer One of Best Players and Field Generals. There Is Just one Individual of Mack persuasion, not even excepting tho In comparable Eddlo Collins, whom the Philadelphia American league team cannot spare without Irreparable loss. That man Is Harry Davis, Mack's captain, who today is one of the best all around first basemen In the fast set. Hal Chaso of New York Id sprier and younger In years than Davis, but for actual good to a team Davis Is tho king of all fast basesmlths In the big Bhow. The oldest man on tho team, Davis is today one of Its leading pacemakers in batting and run getting, while, In addition, ho Is tho whip of tho club. Davis' worth to the Athletics cannot be found In the batting and fielding statistics Issued each year by Presi dent Johnson. Ills value does not end in driving a brother Mackman homo with a baso hit, although he performs this office as much as anybody else on tho team. It was Davis who aided Mack In tu toring tho young players Into stars and IIABRY DAVIS. who is keeping them on their toos all through the game. He Is to tho team on tho field what Muck is to them on tho bench. Mack on fljo beach cannot get Into the play as It comes up. In Davis ho has a man who carries oat Mack Ideas on the field. Mock on tho bench and Davis on tho field form tho combination that has put the Athlet ics where they are today. There Is only ono first baseman who excels him In fielding. Hal Chaso is tho greatest fielding first baseman of the ago. Davis Is the equal of Chanco nnd tho Buperiou-of all others. When his batting ability nnd generalship aro added to his mechanical ability it Is easy to see why ho is often called tho j king of them all. For nine consecutive years Davis has batted hard and conscientiously for j tho cause of Mack. Not one season In i tho nine has ho failed to show uncom- i mon ability. If tho Athletics win the championship this season it will bo mainly due to this reason Mack on the bench and Davis on the field. SAY OUR HORSES CANT STAY Englishmen Admit Their Speed, but Deny They Havo 8tamina. Commenting on tho poor perform ance of tho American colt Sir Martin in tho Gold cup at Ascot, where ho finished nowhere, tho English critics say again that Yankee racers have great speed, but can't stay. Sir Mnr tin's rating last year was a most pe culiar one. In tho Derby ho fell Just before reaching Tattenhain corner nnd not only put himself out of tho run ning, but It has been thought ever Blnce that ho actually prevented Wil liam IV. from winning. How much thero Is in tho theory cannot now bo determined, but It Is n fact that William IV. was Inter fered with by Sir Martin, nnd yet ho finished In third place, only half a length away from Minora, tho winner. Tho subsequent running of Sir Martin as a three-year-old gave ground for a calculation that he should have beat en everything In tho Derby except Baynrdo. In last year's Cambridge shire Blr Martin ran a fine raco when, having tho worst of tho weight by long odds, he was third to Christmas Daisy and Mustapha. As tho raco came off In very heavy ground It was probably not to his liking or ho might havo dono better. Tho day following, when tho ground bad dried up and was much better for going, tho American colt put up a rec ord performance In tho Durham hand icap. He won with tlio top weight, but was not seen In public again un til ho won tho Coronation cup at Ep som. This event was over tho mile and a half course, and Sir Martin pat up a capital performance. Commenting upon tho quality of American horses, Vigilant In tho Sportsman says: "It Is rcmarknble, however, that horses bred In America have generally been distinguished for speed rather than stamina, though tbcro havo been notable exceptions." Secret Marriage Leads to Arrest of Lowery. WILL BE ARRAIGNED TODAY. After Successfully Eluding Detectives For Three Months Alleged Embez zler of $144,500 Is at Last Run to Earth. Utlcn, N. Y., July 10. Romnnco nnd crime went hand In hand In the cnreei of F. Howard Lowery, former assist ant cashier of the Utlca City National bank, who has been brought back to Utlca from Philadelphia, where he wa captured, to answer to the charge of having looted the bank of $144,500 by a series of embezzlements extending over years. While Lowery was Juggling the bank's cash he was courting Miss, Bessie II. Sanderson, a pretty young stenographer In a law office in the same building ns the bank. He married Miss Sanderson three weeks before his Might. Tho marriage was kept a secret by both. He con tinued to occupy the old Lowery fain .lly house nlone, nnd she kept to her small apartment. It was through watching Lowery's bride that detectives were able to cap ture him. She was unconscious that she was being watched. Lowery will be arraigned In the city court hero to-day on a charge of grand larceny In the first degree. Vice President James S. Sherman Is first vice president of tho Utlca City bank. Caught In Philadelphia. Philadelphia, July 10. J. Howard Lowery, the Utlca young man Indicted for embezzlement of $144500 from the Utlca National bank, was arrested here yesterday after a three months' search in which he outwitted detectives who followed him all over tho United States. He was caught through tho I efforts of detectives employed by the American Bankers' association, which discovered that Lowery, whose wife lives in Utlca, had secretly married a Utica girl since his tllght. M0R0S ATTACK AMERICAN. Three Would Be Assassin's Shot Down by Worcester's Bodyguard. Manila, July 10. Deun Conaut Wor cester, Amerlcun secretary of tho in terior for the Philippines, was sot upon by renegade Moros on the Island of Paluwuu and escaped assassbiatlon only through the alertness of his body guard, who shot down tho outlaws, killing three of them outright. Secretary Worcester was touring the island, which Is tho most westerly of the larger of the Phillpplno group, bounding the Sulu sea on tho west, and was present at the Installation of the new governor. In anticipation of ids coming n band of Moros planned his death. Armed with boloK, carefully concealed, they laid n trap for the secretary, who sud denly found himself the object of a siivnge rush. Captain Moynlhnn of tho scouts was tho first to recognize the hostile move ment, and In the nick of time ordered the scouts to fire. At tho fusillade three Moros who led the nttack dropped dead In their tracks, while several others doubled up with more or less severe wounds. The rest of them took to their heels. IN T. R.'S HONOR. Jackson Hole Cowpunchers Plan Wild West Welcome. Cheyenne, Wyo., July 10. Former President Roosevelt will get a real hair raising wild west treat upon the occasion of his visit here next month. Tho welcome will rival any of his Rough Rider experiences If tho plans of the Jackson Hole cowpunchers are carried out. It Is tho purpose of tho cowboys to hold a celebration and con test for the roping and riding cham pionship. More than 1,000 punchers are expected to gather hero at that time. NEGROES SHOT. Further Trouble Feared In Louisiana Town. Fraukllnton, La., July 10. A mob of white men set upon the olilcers In charge of four negroes nt tho railroad station of Rlotal, near here, and one negro wns killed outright by bullets. then hanged to a tree. Two other ne groes were fatally shot nnd the fourth escaped. Further trouble Is feared, as Uio ne groes In tho surrounding country nro arming. SAW OUT OF JAIL.

Sawing .ihrough two Iron bars In a window of tho county Jail, William Brown, serv ing seven years for forgery, and Charles Bcrger, serving six months for picking pockets, climbed to tho roof and slid down a rain spout to liberty. Socloty Man Beats Police Officer. Philadelphia, July lD.-Gordon Ware, a Boston society man, was arrested for stealing a red lantern nnd beating a -mllceiuan over tho head with It Prejudice Against Sleep. Why can some men sleep at will, and some "nervous" men, too, whllo others, sometimes very "heavy" men, with apparently lmraovablo nerves, nro tortured by Insomnia? Why, too, do some men aoem to obtain sufficient rest with five hours' sleep, whllo oth ers require nine? Do some men "sloop slow," as Mr. Smedley Jocularly argued In one of his amusing stories, or do they actually require more sleep? The popular prejudice against sleep works an Infinity of mischief. Thero nro plenty of sluggards even among the cultivated class, but tho sleep sluggard Is In that class a very rare specimen. The tendency of tho educated Is to wakefulness, and tho man who does Intellectual work and exhibits what his frlonds think a dis position to oversleep Is obeying a healthy Instinct. Sleep recuperates him, and ho knows It. Family Doctor. Could not Afford the Extras. Those who object, like the negro In the following story, to tho high fees of a good physician do not always real ize what they are paying for. The doctor in question, says a writer In Tit-Bits, was called out to attend an unknown patient. When he arrived he found that a decrepit negro wanted his attention. The negro first asked, "How much yo' charge, doctah?" "Two dollars a visit," said tho other, and when the negro gasped his surprise, ho continued, "That Includes, you must know, my time, experience, advice and tho medicine.", "A poor old nigger like me den't need nil dem extras," remarked his patient. "Jiet gib me ten cents' wo'th o' yo' cough med'clne, and dat's enough fo' me." Electric Traction In Sweden. The Swedish government has be gun tho electrification of the system of railroads controlled by It. A regu lar service of electric trains is first to be establshed between Stockholm and Jarfra. The trains will be light ed and heated as well as driven by electricity, but compressed air will bo employed for braking. Before extend ing the electrification to the entire railroad system, the government Is seeking a sufficient and reliable sup ply of motive power from waterfalls. It Is believed that this will be found, and if so it will result In great econo my, because coal has to be Imported to run the steam-engtnes now In use In Sweden. Bank of England Notes. When the Bank of England note returns to tho bank It Is nsver reis sued. It Is cancel'ed by having the signature of the chief cashier torn off. After the signatures are torn off the notes are pricked off In tho register and.sorted Into the dates of Issue. They are then placed In boxes In the vaultB where they are kept for five years, after wh'ch they are burned in a furnace in the court yard. Fro7en Butterflies. It is a' common experience among mountain cllmbors to find butterflies lying frozen in the snow, and so brit tle that thoy break unless they aro very carefully handled. Suc'i froz en butterflies on "ielng taken to a warmer climate, recover and fiy away. Six species of butter?les havo been found within a few hun dred miles of the North Pole. Typhoid nnd Flies. "Typhoid is an autumnal disease, appearing most frequently in Octo ber; and looking back It will be found that files were most prevalont at the time of its inception.'- So declared John B.

How the Bishop Swore. Bishop Olmstead, of Denver, tells a Thanksgiving story Illustrative of the fact that clergymen must keep very much farther away from evil than tho ordinary man. The bishop was onco talking In Olm stedvlllo with an old fisherman about a neighboring divine. "A very good man," tho bishop said. "A good man, yes," assented tho old fisherman. "He swears a good bit for a preacher, though." "Swears!" exclaimed Bishop Olm sted. "I can't bellow that" "But I hoard him," said tho old fisherman, obstinately. "I sat beside him at our Thanksgiving treat, you know, sir. We wero both hacking away at a turkey leg. His got away from him. It slid across the tabla toward me, and a lot of cranberry sauce was scattered about "I said to him, sympathetic like, for I could see ho was worked upr " 'Theso legs are d tough, ain't thej, sir?' " 'Yes, George, they certainly aro. "Now If that ain't swearing," con cluded tho old fisherman, "what Is It?" New Balloon Gas.
