Gates and Judge Gary do not agree. Former President Roosevelt and Senatoi Root may be called as witnesses soon. The cabled interview with Andrew Carnegie in London has created a profound impression. He wrote the following: "Judge Gary's statement, as report- ed this morning, embraces_and settles the whole matter.

Here Mr. Carnegie stopped writing, looked up and remarked: "The 25 'and" 50 per cent, profits will: be no more. People will have to be content with 5 and 10 per cent. Multimillionaires will then be very scarce." he added, with a chuckle. Then he resumed writing as follows: "It will deal liberally with capital, but also justly with the consumer. At last, we shall have peace and con- tentment in the wide range of produc- tion and this new plan will be far more satisfactory to both parties than any the world has yet known. "Judge Gary knows that the meet- ings held of steel manufacturers had no aim other than to maintain prices and that the people would never tol- erate such monopoly. He proves his greatness by boldly meeting the sue. He bridges the chasm and de- serves great credit for going to the root of the disease and adopting tW only remedy.

The most significant thing he declared was the growth of the progressive movement in every state he visited. At Washington, Governor Wilson re- ceived a call from Representative Cox of Ohio, who suggested that Harmon and Wilson would be a good ticket in 1912. The governor laughed. "Governor Harmon is a mighty nice ma.n and a good said Gov- ernor Wilson. "Give him my regards when you see him." That is all he had to say concerning Governor Har- mon, regarded in Washington as one of the three leading possibilities for the democratic nomination.

Sandusky and vicinity was swppt by two terrific wind and rain storms Sunday, the first coming about 12 o'clock and the other shortly before 10 o'clock in the evening. Although surrounding cities and villages reported great loss of property and death, this city appeared Monday to have escaped the effects of the lightning and the wind. At Xorwalk one man was fettled, by lightning, street car lines were tied up and the property loss heavy. It was the worst storm experienced there in 25 years. Although there were many small craft on the bay and lake Sunday was morning, all had ample time to run into shelter before the storm broke. The steamer Arrow was on the lake bound for Toledo with a party of 300 Sandusky excursionists aboard when the morning storm began to 'threaten. The staunch steel vessel just made Maumee bay when the storm broke in its full strength. Although some of the passengers were frightened, the vessel weathered the nicely. Re- turning to Sandusky Sunday evening, the Arrow had just tied up at the Co- lumbus avenue dock and discharged her passengers and cargo when the night storm broke. The maximum wind velocity at- tained here was 3S miles an ,hour at Sunday pypning. The total rain- fall since Saturday morning has been 1.10 inches. Captain Griesser of the Marblehead life saving station said that he ex- pected his crew would receive a num- ber of calls as the result of the two storms but up to noon Monday, no word of any boat in distress or ot any accidents of any kind, had been the station. Captain he believed the wind received at Griesser said attained a velocity of close to 50 miles an hour during a part of Sun- day evening's storm. For a time Monday morning it was thought that possibly the drowned man whose body was found floating on the bay Monday morning was victim of Sunday's storm, but it was the opinion of Coroner Knoble thai the man had been dead at least 48 hours before his body was found. In- asmuch as no boats have been re- ported missing, it is unlikely that he was lost during either of the storms. Struck by lightning, it is believed, the fish house of the Heyman Broth- ers' Pish company at Huron. was burned to the grdund Sunday nighi. The structure had been built recent- ly and the loss is estimated at The Huron fire department respond- ed to the alarm, but its efforts were useless, as the flames had gained, too much headway. The fire was dis- covered shortly after ten o'clock, and within an hour its work; had been finished. Fatality At Norwalk; Storm Losses Heavy NQRWALK, 0., June Stanford, 22, was killed and Joseph Lindenberger, 20; Fred Van Buren, 21, and Grank Timmons, 22, were in- jured by a bolt of-lightning that flash- ed during the worst electric, wind and rainstorm that has visited this city in years. The storm came with terrific force from the northwest and brotee- lan street ball grounds, one of quartet, Van Buren, being member of the local team which was to have played the Kofron All Stars of Cleve- land during the afternoon. When tha storm came up the quartet took shel- ter in the grand stand. A gust of wind took off the top of the stand and the young men then sought shel- ter beneath a larg elm treet taoin, ter beneath a large elm tree near-by. The bolt struck the tree and passed from the trunk of the tree to tha men. Young Stanford was killed otit- right and without a mark being left on his body. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. George Stanford. The three companions of Stanford were rend- ered unconscious, all being more of less burned. Of the three injured Bnron ig carinngly hnrl His body is burned in streaks and he was unconscious for several hours, it requiring the persistent efforts.of two physicians to Lindenberger and Timmons were less seriously injured and were revived without great difficulty.. Great damage was done by the wind, immense trees being uprooted in all parts of the city, in several stances being thrown with great force against houses and barns, doing thou- sands of dollars in damage. An im- mense elm tree, three feet in diam- eter, was torn up by the roots and thrown across the end of the hand- some new dwelling of A. S. Preritiss, breaking in the room. Another large tree fell across the porch, at the Hinde residence, tearing it from' the house.
