THE DEADLY LIGHTNING
Struck Tree Where Party Sought
Shelter, Killing One and Injuring
All the Others.
Chicago, July 15.—A very severe
wind and thunderstorm struck Chica-
go today and as a result one person
was killed by lightning and six others
were so badly injured that their recov-
ery is doubtful The storm which
raged for over half an hour came up
suddenly out of the west and caused
destruction in all parts of the city.
There were a number of persons fish-
ing in the lake at the foot of Oak
street, when from out of a cloudless
sky rain began to fall. The fisher-
men made for the shore from off the
pier and sought shelter tinder a large
oak tree that stood about 150 feet
from the lake. Suddenly a bolt of
lightning struck the tree, killing one
and injuring the five men who had
sought, shelter under Its branches.

SIX TRAINS EACH DA^
Will Be Run on the Chicago & North
western by Way of Omaha—Reg-
istration Begins Today.
Shoshone, Wyo., July 15.—Every-
thing is in readiness here for the open-
ing of the big land lottery, the big-
gest of recent years and perhaps the
last big one. Uncle Sam is giving
away 1.150,000 acres of which, appar-
ently one-third are suitable for agri-
cultural purposes and susceptible of ir-
rigation, while the balance is graz-
ing, timber and mineral lands. Two
railroads have built, over a hundred
miles of track each in order to bring
in the homeseekers, who are already
arriving in large numbers.
Commissioner Richards, of the gen-
eral land office, who will take charge
of the proceedings of the next two
weeks, has arrived and the registra-
tion of names will begin Monday morn-
ing. One special train from Denver,
with five hundred homeseekers on
board, came in this evening and adds
to the already large crowd. Many are
coming from eastern points and are
scheduled to arrive about midnight.
The Chicago and Northwestern,
which has the direct line from the east
by way of Omaha, will run six trains
daily to accommodate the crowds which
are expected and the railroadmen say
that they look for from fifty to one
hundred thousand persons to reach the
registration points between now and
the close of registration on July HI.
Shoshone is a town of mushroom
growth. Its first building, a hotel, was
erected less than ten months ago. A
month ago It had a population of 700.
Now it has a first class depot and two
good hotels, while, notwithstanding the
big crowds that are expected, accom-
modations will be provided for all.
Modenfte prices prevail for necessi-
ties, but luxuries are not to be had.
GAMBLING ON ISTHMUS.
Canal Zone is Said to Have Become a

Washington, July 15.—The canal
zone across the isthmus of Panama is
a rival of Monte Carlo, according to
James E. Smith, who has just reached
this city after a six months' residence
"The canal strip is being turned Into
a veritable Monte Carlo." he said,
many of the employes are taking to
gambling as a means of passing the
time. Police officials in charge of the
stations throughout the canal strip
have instructions to not Interfere with
friendly games of chance. This has
caused gullibility games to spring up
in every town along the ruilroad or
TAFT AND PRESIDENCY.
Infliionce of Or^ nized Labor is
Ksiirca if He Should Btcomc
Washington. Julv 15 —Secretary of
War Taft's announcement that he
hoped to visit the Philippines next
summer has occasioned much gossip
among politicians here. It is held to
involve the vital auestion as to wheth-
er or not the secretary is an active
candidate for the nresidential nomina-
tion. The taking of the journey to
the Phllionines will be^ construed as
equivalent, to the declaration that he
is a candidate, as going there would
eliminate him from consideration as
a candidate for the vacant place
the supreme court bench. Mr. Taft
has alreadv nermitted the statement
to be made that he will do some spell-
binding for the republican congression-
al campaign committee during ap-
proaching contest for the next house.
He has promised Chairman Sherman
that he will make a series of speeches
in Ohio and he will undoubtedly ex-
tend his Itinerary to other states.
While making no specific utterances
on the subject it is known that Mr.
Taft is not over-anxious for the pres-
identfal nomination. He realizes that
his numerous decisions on the bench
against organized labor would cost the
party enormously in the campaign. It
is doubtful whether he could be elect-
ed if aiven the nomination because of
organized oonosition from the organ-
—New York Herald.
