Kern and to those who know the inside of the situation at the national capital it sounds like a tocsin of war. It derives its sig- nificance from the fact that a virile1 and influential element of senate pro- gressives has decided to try to force a general revision of the tariff at the present session of congress and, in the language of General Grant, will hold congress here to ''fight it out along that line if it takes all sum- mer." There is now a determination to open up the tariff revision ball at this session to the extent of forcing the senate to remain in this swelter- ing atmosphere until it votes on all of the tariff measures that the house sends over to it, including the farm- ers' free list bill, the bill to revise the fvoolen schedule, the bill to re- vise the cotton schedule, etc. This determination took fixed and hold WOODEN STANDS BUILT IN LONDON FROM WHICH CORONATION PARADES WILL BE iGF IS Governor Signed Bill Providing Insurance Against Death And Injury. committee on finance had voted __COLU.MBUS, O., June Govea-n- 01 Harmon's signaiuie made a law of the Green bill crating a state insur- ance fund tor the compensation of in- jured employes.

Special to The PORT CLINTON, 0., June grade crossings are to be eliminated here by the Lake Shore railroad com- pany, under the terms of an agreement that has been i cached between repre- sentatives of the railroad and the vil- lage council. Because a new route through the town is to be followed, re- quiring entirely new construction, no expense falls upon the village. Some time ago the right of way was secured for the new route which Is tn- tended to eliminate the S curve, cross- ing the Poitago river some distance above the piesent bridge. People of the village have been divided on the question of permitting the laying of the tracks, at street level or an eleva- tion, some opposing the latter plan on the ground that it would divide the town as by a wall. By agreement now reached, the will oe considerably elevated, and ore will be three subways, one at Fulton street for pedestrians and teams, one at Madison street for pe- dfbtiians onlv, and a third which is yet to be located.

At a conference with Western Traffic Manager Constans, of the B. O., it was made plain that the removal of the division freight office from this city would mean a big loss to the railroad company. At the same time'it" was reported that the Lake Shore and the Lake Erie Western are considering the plan of establishing a joint Sivis- ion freight office here for the ac- commodation of shippers. CLEVELAND, 0., June 16. The wireless came out in Lake Erie, of the passenger steamer Western States late last night after the steamer had become disabled through the blowing out of an engine cylinder. The steamer s wireless op- erator sent out a call for help, which was responded to by the passenger steamer City of Cleveland n-hich was 45 miles off the South EC i Skoals in Lake Erie opposite VermilicJ, eiiroutL to Buffalo, The accident occurred shortly aft- er the Western States hsd left tlie mouth of the Detroit river, bound for Cleveland.

They are still hopeful of having' the removal order rescinded. It is pointed out very plainly that the B. O. has. taken about enough away from San- dusky and that if it proceeds any fur- ther the line will be regarded as little nore than a sidinsr. The shippers had figures showing that the B. 0. -would ;ain decidedly by retaining the office here. A final decision has not yet beea announced. Nothing definite has been announced with reference'to the proposed joint of- fice of the Lake Shore and the Lake Erie Western. The new Lake Shore train operation plan, however, seems to be already under way. Trainmen were informed Thursday that abont seven runs would be changed so that the crews would run through from To- ledo to Colliflwood, leaving but about four Sandusky trains. Heretofore ten to a dozen trains have been made up hpre. the crews running to Toledo and return or to Collinwood and return. Should the change become permanent the men would be compelled to move either to Toledo or Collinwood. The men say. however, that the plan not be found practicable, especially in the winter season, and they are confi- dent it will not be permanent BOY BANDIT ESCAPES FROM 200 ARMED MEN VALLEJO, Cal, June Mel- ville, 19-year-old boy bandit, today succeeding in escaping from 200 armed men comprising three posses who wera Iiim on a iiilHop where fie had been defying them for two days OPERATION CURES MANIA. most transformed within the next few past.
