Attorneys representing public service corpora- tions of the state, at a hearing hefore the house committee on railroads and telegraphs on the Vvroods public utili- ties commission bill, made it clear that they will seek to have the bill amended so that the right to grant franchises and fix rates for public service corporations will be taken from municipalities and conferred upon the proposed state board.

Professor E. C. Pickering, director of Harvard obser- vatory, scoffed a i the report from Paris that C ami lie Flammarion. tixj, French astronomer, had been quoted j as declaring that wholesale extinction i of life will follow the passing of the earth through the nebulae of. Halley's comet on May is. That the cyanogen gas in the tail of the comet is fctructive of all life is doubted by Professor Pickering. N. Hagen of Springfield was one! who said: "l do r'ot believe that. the attorneys present, and in re- F1ammarion said that. However, if, he did. it will have no weight with j porations favor this plan.

This bill j was passed by tho house last week j The bill of Representative Smith, j designed to permit the training of more apprentices in the trades, was eaved from an early death when, in- stead of being referred to the com- mittee on labor, which is hostile, it went to the manufacturers' commit- tee. Representative Shankland intro- duced his bill to abolish Jhe state levy. Each county under the bill will be required to raise a levy of one mill for school purposes, and if ttis does not furnish a per capita allow- ance of for each school youth.- draft may be made upon the state revenue fund for the dcfk-iency. Stat-2 assessment on the counties is to be made in proportion to population for the support of the universities and for the payment of interest on the irreducible state school dt'bt. D. E. Brelsford. the. Dayton printer whose memory proved.to be so defec- tive before the state graft investigat- committee, returned to Columbus and asked for a conference with Chairman Beatty. The two men were cioseieu together for nearly two hours. Chairman Beatty would only say after the conference Mr. Brelsford had asked for more time in which to look up his papers' and re- fresh his memory before going before the committee again, and at his re- quest a further examination of the witness has been postponed to Mon- day of next week. There will be no witnesses <2xa.rnined by the committee on Friday of this week, as intended. Mr. Brelsford is a former partner of Mark Slater. No Republican opposition developed passing through the comot's tail, and she is still with us. Too many of these rumors are ov.-ine to the efforts of cheap sensationalists, who desire free advertising." BUM Kll TO STORY Chicago, Feb. 'fiushbaum. Frederick and Moses W.

"Before Colonel Roosevelt sailed for Africa." said Mr. Stewart, "and while aboard ship he was asked to permit to be made for bis homecoming, in the way of some- thing- like a popular welcome. The former president did not refuse invitation, but said that he preferred to keep the matter in abeyance for a while. "In a general way I should say that the welcome will be simple and dig- nified, and no attempt will be made at elaborate displays, but rather to afford an opportunity for America to welcome a former president. Full details of the reception will, as Col- onel Roose-velt requests, be forwarded to him at Khartoum, and it is likely that a special committee will meet Mr. Roosevelt in London and perfect arrangements. It is expected that Colonel Roosevelt will arrive on date between the loth and the 21st of June. The reception will of course be national in its scope and entirely nonpolitical." Mr. Stewart denied- that the recep- tion was plan to nominate Roose- velt for the presidency in 1912. President Taft will not be expected to join the crowd and go down to the pier to shout or to get on a revenue cutter and board the incoming steam- er, said Mr. Stewart. If he consents to lend his presence to the affair ha will be escorted to a reviewing and await Mr. Roosevelt there MDfiERS BAVE CLOSE CALL.
