Was Thrown In Lake Youth Last 8een With Girl Protests His Inno cence. Wilkoslmrio, l'a.. July 1). Miss Crls pell, tliu young woman believed to have been murdered. In connection with which Uurburt Johns, nn ardent nd inlrer, Is under arrest, hud another Bultor. Tlic iwlice learned that the two young men's rivalry had reached such n stage that they hud arranged a swim ming match across Harvey's lake, ,whre the girl met her death, to deter mine which one should win her. This Information came out through a letter written by young Johns to the girl on Sunday night, two days before she dlsiipenred. This letter, which came to the attention of the authori ties, indicates that young Johns knew nothing of the girl's death. It con tained the name of his rival, for whom the police are now searching, and re ferred to the feat of swimming across the lake. Miss Crlspell, the , pretty eighteen-year-old daughter of a prosperous farmer, disappeared from her homo on Friday night and was last seep nllve talking to Johns after 11 o'clock on that owning. The letter which was found was written by Johns to the girl on Sunday night and bears every evidence that he did not know of her death. The writer said that he was lonely and hoped to see the one ho loved soon. The letter closed wltb tho following sentence: "From the fellow who will never for get tho girl who has forgotten him." With Her That Night. Tho young man admits that ho was with the girl almost up to the time when persons living near Harvey's lake said they heard a girl screaming in terror A witness Is being sought who Is said to have told of seeing a young man clad In a gray suit running away from tho lake just after tle time the girl Is supposed to have met her death. Johns admits having worn n gray suit that evening. An nutopsy has revealed tho prob able motive for the death of tho young girl, und the case now appears to par allel that of tho murder of "Billy" Brown near Ilerkimer, N. Y., for whose death Chester Gillette went to the electric chair. Further examina tion of tho girl's body showed that she had fought vigorously for her life and makes It appear that she was beaten and choked until stunned nnd then flung Into the lake. Both Eyes Blackened. Both her eyes were blackened, there were other bruises on her head and on her right wrists were tho deep imprints of teeth. Her throat and body were marked by finger prints. Immediately after tho autopsy Dr. F. J. HIgglns, who made tho examination, would only say, "I am convinced that murder was committed." Johns was found at work In a mine by reporters, who had learned ho was tho last one seen with tbo girl before her dentil. IIo talked freely with them and was on his way to see tho authori ties when the coroner decided to order bis arrest He stoutly declares that he Is innocent of tho girl's death. JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER.

STATE TO SUPERVISE CONSTRUCTION OF DAMS, The Senate bill conferring author ity upon tho stato water supply contr mission over all dams and obstruc tions in streams of the state, except the tidal waters of the Delaware and its navigable tributaries has been ap proved by Governor Tenor and here after no dam or wall can bo erected without permission from the com mission and its approval of the plans. Tho commission Is authorizo to supervise tho construction and operation of all dams as well. This bill was drafted to ovorcomo lack of authority to prevent such disasters as tho breaking of the dam at Aus tin. The governor vetoed the G. A. Baldwin House bill extending to for eign corporations engaged in tho manufacturing of lumber tho right to hold real estate In Pennsylvania. Bills signed included: Senate 'Regulating procedure in Allegheny county courts. Authorizing counties and munici palities to make appropriations an nually to Spanish War, Philippine and foreign service veterans for Memorial Day expenses. Permitting third class cities to manufacture and sell Ice. like pimples, blackheads, acne, bar ber's Itch, etc., quickly disappear, but the worst ulcers or cases of salt rheum or eczema are cleansed and healed by this wonderful skin food. In order that any one may try Ho kara at small expense, Pell's drug store is selling a liberal-sized jar at 25 c, and in addition guarantee to re fund tho money if tho treatment does not do all that is claimed for it ITCHING IRRITATION. A GENUINE PUBLIC UTILITIES IjAAV. At last the State of Pennsylvania is to have a genuine Public Utilities law. Thanks to the untiring deter mination of Governor Tener; to the ability which Attorney General dis played in drawing tho bill; to the co operation of William Draper Lewis and to the good sense of the Legis lature itself; the old Railroad Com mission is to pass out of existence and a commission of seven members is to take its place clothed with tue powers that the existing body never possessed and without which its mis sion was only advisory. Real reforms do not come with one jump. They are the outcome of growth. Tho Railroad Commission law had its uses in paving tho way for something better. Attorney Gen eral Bell drew a bill and Governor Tenor insisted upon its adoption two years ago. It failed then, but the defeat was only temporary. It was Impossible to get away from tue movement this year. In giving this now law to Pennsylvania, Governor Tener has done his State a splendid service. The new law may not be perfect. No one would go so far to say that it is. But few laws are. Perfection if there is such a thing comes only through experience. If in a few instances the provisions might have been bettered, the fact remains that so far as can be judged tho law is onlv a credit to tho Commonweaitn, but is certain to prove immensely beneficial. If there are mistakes, they are trivial when taken in con nection with tho whole. Besides, af ter two years of putting the work ings of the commission to tho test and to the proof, it will be an entire ly easy matter at tho next legisla tive session to strengthen any weaK ness that may develop. We congratulate tho Governor ana his Attorney General because their strenuous labors in behalf of a genu ino Public Utilities Commission have brought forth excellent fruit; we congratulate the Legislature for en acting into law a bill that has re quired months of hard work ana pa tient study to perfect; and Anally we congratulate the people of Pennsyl vania upon tho fact that tho public utilities no longer will be allowed to be run without direction by pun- lie officials. There is to be super vision with direction, both positive and intelligent.
