A bill to that effect is being drawn today and will be passed Immediately. A large number of aviators had announced tfieir in- tentions of witnessing the corona- tion procession from aeroplanes. PARIS, May 22 Henry Mau- rice Berteaux, the minister of war, was almost instantly killed in yester- day's aeroplane accident, those in- jured, including Premier Antome Monis, his son. Antoine Monis, and Henri Deutsca de la Mourthe, aged pa tron of aviator, are expected to recov- er. All France has been stunned by the affair. President Fallieres called the cab- inet together and Mr. Cruppi, minister of foreign affairs, was designated to fulfill the duties of minister of war, pending further developments, and temporarily to act as head of the cab- 'net. Various reports were circulated to the effect that Premier Monis might resign and the ministry be re- organized. The accident occurred on the avia- at Issyles Molineux where persons had gathered to see the start of the race M. Train was piloting the monoplane that wrought such havoc. With him in the car was M. Bounier, a passenger Neith- er of the men was injured. The ma- chine was wrecked. Minister of Wai Berteaux has hor- ribly mangled. The swiftly revoiv Ing propeller cut off cleanly his left arm which was found ten feet away from the spot where he was struck the back of his head was crushed in his throat gashed and the whole of his left side cut and lacerated. Premiei Moms was buried bene'ath the wreckage of the monoplane He taken out as quickly as possible and examined by military surgeons, whs found that he had sustained compound fractures of two bones in the right leg, that his nose was biok- en, his face badly contused and that there were bruises on the breast and abdomen.

When the senate convened Senator LaFollette was pre- pared to call up his resolution order- ing the new investigation and every- thing had been prepared for its pas- sage. It provides for .he probe being conducted by the committee on priv- ileges and elections. Efforts of Lorimer's friends to block another investigation have apparently failed. Lorimer steadfastly refuses to dis- cuss his troubles with any but his most intimate confidants. However, the report, based on high authority, is in circulation that Lorimer insists he will fight to the finish. Progressive democrats including Pomerene of Ohio, Lea of Tennessee and Kern of Indiana, considered the advisability of an amendement to the LaFollette amend- ment simply (hanging the personnel of the investigating committee. The point to the amendment is that it is proposed to substitute a committee made up entirelj of the members of tbe privileges and elections commit- tee, thereby meeting the argument that the LaFollette resolution is a di- rect slap at the elections committee. The new investigating committee, as proposed by the progressive demo- crats is made up of Senator Dilling- ham, Vermont, chairman of the privi- leges and elections committee; Suther- land of Utah, Kenjon of Iowa, Kern of Indiana and Lea of Tennessee.

If the court should hold that there was error sufficient to in- validate the decision, Cox's case may be brought before a. subsequent grand jury and he may be reindicted.

For five jears he has been unable even to leave his home in his wheeled V HVIE OF US HURRY HOME THESE chair. But his smile never left his wan, pinched face. For years Danny has sat in his chair by the window of his parents' residence. Passers-by on the street never failed to greet him with a wave of the hand or a nod of the head. Old school chums called regularly to visit with him just as they started to do ten years when they first realized his condition. Several times his friends have arranged benefits for him. On birthdays and holidays they never forgot to send Danny a postal card shower. They were indeed warm friendships which Dannyi possessed and these together with the tender solicitations given him by his mother and other members of his family, lift- ed to a great extent, the burden cast upon him by ill-health. Last November when it ed that the late Mrs, Rosa Baubach, a second cousin of Danny, had for- gotten him in her will, theie were many who were disappointed because they expected Danny would be gen- erously remembered, for the young sufferer had often been referred to as her favorite relative. Dannv himself expressed no regret other than that the aged woman had denied herself so many of the pleasures of life order to hoard her savings. He ._ alized that a bequest might have aid- ed him in his fight for life but he said the bequest to the hospital was for good cause. His cheerful nature not desert him at this time. He was still rich in friendship.

The test will be in the nature of a mandamus proceeding before Judge Reed The iprosecuting attorney takes the stand thac the law requires the publication of the report, and that the auditor has no right to refuse to take such action. Prosecutor Hart. Monday morning, intimated that the matter would be carried to the state supreme court, if necessary to obtain a favorable de- cision. In his suit against the audi- tor, the prosecutor will have the backing of John Bragg of Parkertown, and Edgar Montgomery, the county examiners. The report was signed by the prosecutor and the examiners. According to the contentions of the auditor and the commissioners, a large part of the report should not be published, as it included matters not coming under the scope of the ex- aminer's work The report was filed in the office of the county clerk, April 5. and covered the financial transact- ons of the commissioners, and charg- ed irregularities on the part of the auditor and the commissionera and others. Judge Reed will be asked to decide just what, if any, portion of the re- port should be published. The case will be of interest not only here, but in other counties.

Business Men's Association Of- finals flrp Visitors Coming With several propositions pending, one of which has been pretty well gone over and which would probably bring here three factories, officers of the Business Men's Association are busy. A new proposition brought Chicago men here Sunday and they were properly entertained and shown what could be offered1 them. The pro- position, according to offlcialst looks good, but nothing can yet be made public. Members of the Elyria Chamber of Commerce, making a two swing around a circle, are expected here Tuesday morning and will be properly received by local business men. They expect to arrive at a. m. and leave at 10 30 a. m. TJnfortunatelr no details of their plans have been received and so little could be done in the wa> of preparation to entertain them. They are visiting a number of cities in this vicinity. NOT QUITE SO BAD.

This was the announcement of the weather bureau Monday, following the failure of cool- er weather to arrive. A "low" which was central over Illinois Sat- urday night simply disappeared in- stead of traveling eastward' as all regulated and "lows" should, and now wea tner sharks are up tlM tit. Sunday's maximum was three de- I grees lower than that of Saturday, 1 and Monday seemed likely to equal if not eclipse the figures. The weather men are completely puzzled. West of the Mississippi it is cool although "loV conditions prevail which usu- ally mean heat weather. East of the Mississippi there are "high" condi- tions and here it is excessively not. What's the answer? While Ssndusky had a temperature of 73 at 7 o'clock Monday morning, Milwaukee reported but 52. The high- est temperature here Sunday was and the lowest during the night but 68. While there has been no deaths di- rectly due to the extreme heat, phys- icians say the effect of the hot weather is bad and has doubt hastened the' deaths of sereral pie.
