There are other strikes which must be settled of the sheet metal workers, lathers, painters and structural iron workers. SLATON ENDS TERM AS GOVERNOR OF GEORGIA ATLANTA, Ga., Juno E, Harris today was inaugurated gover- nor of Georgia, succeeding John M.

Slaton arose- in the hall of the house of representatives to make a short farewell address and hand over the state seal to his successor, there was a hostile demonstration in the galleries. It was .'luickly suppressed. As he handed over the seal with the remark that "during my administra- tion this seal has never been abused." Gov. Slaton was cheered from the gal- leries as well as from the floor. HUDSON JUDGE WILL HOLD CIRCUIT COURT HERE WASHINGTON, D. Official advices today report a smash- ing defeat of-Gen.

HEBBLETHWAITE IS GUILTY, JURY SAYS Late this afternoon George Hebble- thwaite. on trial "In municipal court in< a largely attended hearing yester- day in -the executive offices, when both sides presented arguments on the Stemper bill amending the Baker law, Gov, Philipp announced that he would, veto-the billif it is not amended to apply to Milwaukee only. The gov- ernor made the following statement: "I shall decline to sign the so-called Stemper bill in its present form. The only.condition upon which I will.sign it is that it shall be amended so as to apply only to the city of Milwau- kee. I am guided in this by the fact that the Baker law has become the settled policy of the state after eight years, and there is no sentiment, so far as I know, for its repeal or -its general modification. I would suggest to the friends of the bill that they.re- call it to the assembly -for the pur- pose of amendment. "I would suggest that the bill be so amended that whenever the city wishes to close an undesirable saloon it may substitute one that operated under color of license in 1913. The bill must, however, provide that the chief of police shall be 'the Judge of. the character of the saloon as well a? the one to take- its place. "I suggest this change for two rea- sons: First. In the interest of better saloons inx.Milwaukee; second, to give to the people who sustained losses on account of advice of the attorney gen- eral in'1907 an opportunity.to reopen their places. "I believe it to be the 'sentiment of the people of Wisconsin that there should be fewer and better saloons. I heartily concur in this view." All through the hearing Gov.

The mayor said that he would not have come out to speak for I it. were it not that it was likely to bring about better saloon conditions. He said he was informed that under the bill the council would have the power to weed out the undesirable saloons. Council Failed in Duty "Speaking of weeding out, the council has that right said the governor. To this Mayor Bading re- plied that the council had always fol- lowed the report of the chief lice. Gov. Philipp said he could not un- derstand, if the council had the power to weed out such places, why it was necessary to come to-the legislature.

C. Johnson wielding the trowel. The big stone, decorated with bunting, was swung into place by three masons selected for the occasion. As the stone dropped into the place where it will rest-as long as the building stands, there was a cheer .by the assembled crowd. Following a dinner at the Young Men's Christian association building the captains and their assistants who solicited the funds for the new building marched to Fourth and Wisconsin streets, headed by Schulte's band. After the opening prayer by Rev. John Fedclers, pastor of Holy Communion Lutheran church, the audience sang "All Hail the Pow- er of Jesus' Name." The singing was led by C. B.

Alberta, June 26 rough estimate of the damage wrought in Redcliffe by the tor- nado of last night fixed the total today at No lives were lost. Twelve persons were seri- ously injured. The storm seemed to strike the town from all directions. Build- ings were leveled, roofs lifted, telephone poles blown over and when the storm had subsided the towh was almost a total wreck. Almost every, large building was damaged and several private houses were wrecked: A mill, a planing mill, a cigar factory, a depart- ment store, a hotel, a warehouse and an ornamental iron works factory were among tures unroofed of otherwise dam- azed. his family and working in his study on correspondence with Charles Swem, his stenographer. He planned to take a long automobile ride In the afternoon. He received no word from Washington. A cold night which made blankets necessary allowed the president to get a good sleep. Baby Sayre, his young grandson cried several times during the night but Mr. Wilson was not dis- turbed. His usual routine of playing golf in the morning was not followed today. Monday night the judiciary com- mittee of the city council will holdxa meeting. City Attorney. Burgess and Mayor Thiesen will be present. The so-called jitney ordinance will be giv- en consideration and it is expected the legal representative of the Jitney as- sociation will be present to look after their client's interests. The city attorney has received a copy of the Milwaukee ordinance as submitted by Chief of Police-Janssen of that city. It is said to be a very drastic measure, much stronger than would'be desired in .Racine. It has. been said and-'it js true, that the losses.to the street car- company due to. the inroads of jitney have been enormous, running on several systems as high as twenty per cent on the former gross earnings. There is a wide difference of opinion as to whether' jitneys can be operated at a profit under the most favorable condi- tions, but the immediate concern of electric rail ys, especially here in P.acine, is the loss while the jitney promoters are finding, it out. Many of the jitney drivers admit LONE JITNEY TIES UP cm: CAR LINES I jitney about tied up the entire 'street car system for more than 20 minutes this morning. Four- teen cars, twelve locals and two interurbans, were stalled directly in front of the Hotel Racine.

Of course the big car came down on .the tracksvand caused the that they are barely paying expenses and the railway people claim that the jitney craze has been due to the fact that receipts have been greatly .over- estimated, earnings in general having been reported as being or per day, and in some Instances to a day. j Comprehensive reports have been compiled by the street railway people and others to show that these claims are not true.
