JOHN SCHLAT- TER KILLED BY FALL- ING FROM A TREE. BETTER THAN THEMULIET. TWO DOWNIE PUMPS SHOW GRAT- IFYING RESULTS. Wife of Well Known Allen County Farmer fleets With a Tragic Death----Her Neck Broken. .Mrs. Barbara Scblatter, wite ol John Schlatter, living two anil one- lialC miles northwest of Leo, was in- stantly ktlled.br falling from a tree at her home Thursday afternoon. She. was on a ladder picking'apples in iler own orchard when the accident oc- curred. -Mrs. who was above medium weight, was about twenty feet from the ground on a lad- der propped against a limb of a tree. .On the ground below her was a little (laughter of Mr. Depew, a Neighbor. Suddenly a movement of the limb caused the ladder to turn over, and the unfortunate, woman, unable to re- gain her balance, was thrpwn to the ground below. She alighted on her head 'and (he ladder toppled over on top of her. The little Depew girl, badly fright- ened, ran to a nenrby Held, where her father was working and called him to the scene. When lie arrived he found Mrs. Schlatter dead under the tree. Mr. Schlatter was absent from home, having drix'ea t'o the city in the morn- ing with a load of .hogs. A messenger was dispatched, who met him on the road and imparted the terrible tid- ings. Mrs. Schlatter was 51 years of age and a member of the Araish church. She was well known and greatly loved among a large .circle of friends, and her tragic death has cast the entire community into, gloom- Her husband is one of the best-known farmers in the northern part of Allen county. Coroner W. Barnett was sum- moned and drove to .the Schlatter home, where he examined tho remains. He found that the fall had brolten Mrs. Schlatter's neck and that death in all probability had been instan- taneous. She had struck on the ground on (lie side of her bead. The funeral arrangements have not been made. UNION PICKETS DARE NOT SPEAK TO NON-UNION WORKERS. Steady and Large Production From Two Official Test More Water at West Side Station.

Ot the mllla of the United Steel corporation that were by the strike of the Amalgamated associa- tion, stated to-day that they arc re- ceiving many' applications from for- mer employes for work. The an- nouncement that the company would start their mills non-union has, the officials believe, caused a weakening in the ranks of strikers and many arc setjklng cover. The Amalgamated officials, how- ever, claim that their ranks, arc strong as ever. -One of the steel ofll- claisi said to-day that a general mis- take was made as to the time it would take to train inexperienced men to, operate mill machines. It is now determined, he said, to have new men 1 placed in positions that will give them a chance to learri the skilled woric and many ot the men who held menial positions in the union mills are'to bo taught skilled work. It is asserted that in a feyir montlis new men wili be at work in all the plants now Idle. The strikers say it will take years to accomplish all this. Reports from all the" iuills ot the enrporatloli show that steady gains are in the force ot non- union men. The strikers claim to have induced; six non-hnibri men to desert--the 'Slar'InlHs" to-day and to go liaclc 'to Chicago.. Superintendent Piper, of the Star plant, announced that he is nearly ready to start up the other mills in the plant, and the men arc now waiting for the improve- ments to he completed, in the mill. In the Painter mills the work is pro- gressing smoothly and no desertions are reported. New men are being se- cured though tlie company officials any that on Sundays the strikers make tin active canvass ot the homes of the men at work and seek to in- duce remain away from tho plant.. The last two mills in the Painter plant, worn to have been started to-day but it .was found im- possible to have them ready and tho stalling was postponed for a few days.

Tho slart was made, ac- cording to the officials, with a full crew and the mill will be run .without ntcrrupllon. The rumor that the steel workers' strike would affect the opening ot tho window glass .plants this fall, was said by a prominent manufacturer to-day to be absurd. The building trades, he said, have not been, affected by the strike. The American Tin Plate company has announced that it will start the Dcinmler mills of the company Mon- day ot next week. Police protection has been asked from Mayor Black, of McKeesport. Officials ot the Amalgamated asso- ciation will not discuss the report of injunction being served against their members at Canal Dover, 0-, until they .hear officially from their district officers. It is -believed by many ot the lay members ot tho association that somo effective way will be found by which injunctions can be .circum- vented. Reports to-night from outside points indicate no change whatever in tho strike situation. The report from to-night is that the steel hoop mill will resume with full force on next Monday, ac- cording to the plans made at present Enough men have been secured, it is claimed, to operate the- plant both turns, and the strike here will be practically' broken should this be car- ried out. The tin mill is running with its usual regularity and present indi- cations do not point to any approach- ing trouble.

The board ot public works is up against one ot the toughest'proposi- tions of recent years in the levying ot assessments for the intercepting sewer. Last night was the time fixed for the confirmation ot the as- sessment rolls, but the board was uot able to satisfy the people who called to know the reason for what they re- garded as excessive assessments, and after straggling with the kickers for two hours the board took a recess until 2 o'clock this afternoon, without having transacted auy business. From the first it has been realized that the levying of satisfactory as- sessments would be a difficult job. 'he board has been at it for more ban a year, and has had Deputy City "ogincer McKendry and an' as- istant, ITcnry Lichtslnn, at work uring nearly all ot that time dividing be city into plats for the purpose of rrlving at a correct basis ot assess ment. All lots were assessed on the ot value and ot benefits derived rom the construction of the sewer, n making the assessment the board IBS taken into consideration the lo cation, value, and uses ot every lot In he city. The assessment falls heav- cat on down town property and light- est on lots in the outskirts. The char icter ot business carried on bag also factor in determining the mount lo be paid, and hotels, which have the heaviest drainage, are as- waited higher than any other species it property. occupied by groceries, saloons and other bnal- ICUSCB entailing heavy drainage, are Ino more heavily assessed than oth- TB wlilcli are calculated to put less it n burden on the newer system. It took the board six months to ar- rive at an equitable estimate ot bene- fits'" to every lot In the and about mttfrh longer for the Inents to be fixed. Now the board will In many caites have to go over the whole ground agnln to satisfy property owners Hint assessments nrc just. Many property owners will want, a full description ot the entire of assessment before agreeing lo the levy, ami there will no doubt be many remiinslrHiiceH. night. A. J. Vesey on behalf of W. J. and Maggie Veiiey, filed a. ro- monslrance against the assessment ..t certain lots on South Broadway. Mr. Volney Parks wanted. 10 Know all about tho assessments on his lots, which are scattered In various parts of town and all of which, ol course, are assessed differently. A number of others called to learn the why and wherefore ot assessments on their property differing" from those oh prop- erty throe or four blocks away, and the explanations occupied the time ot the board for very nearly two hours. Other business which was to come up could not be considered, and the board finally decided to take a recess until 2 o'clock this afternoon, when the as- sessment roils will be- taken up City Pay Day Changed. The city employes will be paid oft on Aug. 31. instead of on Sept. 1, on With not a drop of rain, nor the appearance of it. with all bud and un- kindly winds packed tight in the weather bag ot Boreas, with the air tempered 'to a gentle mildness and with a big yellow glorious moon shining over all. Venetian night at Rome City was a success far beyond even the most sanguine wishes of the- thousands who laughed in. the joy of their hearts and shouted gaily in the city ot dreams and by the painted lake. The earnest labors ot the cot- tagers had not gone for nothing; the time and money spent on the beauti- ful festival was not without full re- ran! and every lucky man and wom- an who was thrilled by the fairy splendor of the night feasted eyes and ears lill they could feast no more, and then went' their ways, thanking their lucky, stars that they had been permitted to live in a scene from fairyland. Mere words, the plain unpoetical words ot the English language cannot begin to tell of the beauty and bril- liancy of It all. It would take another language. Spanish, or better, the Ital- ian of old Venice to halt describe the scene that sent the cottagers ot Rome City to bed last night with proud fccarts and beauty- wearied eyes.
