A fresh out-ireak of bubonic plague has come to :aracas as the result of the negligence if the Castro government In not prop-rly stamping out the disease during he epidemic last year. President jomez has realized the responsibility ipon him, and it Is generally conceded hat If the measures decreed, during he last few days are carried out with mnesty the plague will soon be a luestion of the past. The Hygiene Commission advises he government to purchase and de-troy the rats which spread the dis-ase; to construct a special hospital or the plague patients, so that real solatlon of the patients can be had; o organize companies of men, directed by honest leaders, who shall Imme-iiately proceed to clean up not only :be public streets and squares but also he interior of the houses, and to im-nediately order from abroad statlon-,ry and movable disinfecting appar-.tus, Clayton apparatus, Tersin's erum in great quantity, and Haffkin's ymph in great quantity ajso. The commission also calls the at-ention of the government to the ne-essity of organizing sanitary com-nissions in the ports, especially In La luayra and in Puerto Cabello. Each iassenger who arrives at those ports rom Caracas should be under medical urvelllance for a period of seven lays.. All the measures recommended by he commission have been adopted by 'resident Gomez, who also has issued tiree decrees of the- utmost Impor-mce. The first is the compulsory accination decree of last week, which nposes, under a penalty of fine or mprisonment, vaccination on forelgn-in and natives alike throughout the rtrale territory of Venezuela. Small-ox has been endemic in Caracas and Jiroughout Venezuela for. a great nany years. In striking refutation of General Jastro's recent statement that Vene-uela would be bankrupt in six nonths Is a paragraph from President iomez's message to Congress which hows that, notwithstanding the sup-ression by the new government of Bmberless ' oppressive taxes, the eficit in the Bank of Venezuela left y Castro has been transformed Into credit.

Ohio Aviators ReceiYe Congratulations from High Officials and Drstinguisbed Scientists and Medals from Aero Club Washington, June 10 The achievement of man flight, for which men have striven for more than 4,000 years, will be celebrated In Washington today. After having been given homage by the rulers of Europe, Wilbur and Orville Wright of Dayton, O., will today receive their first public recognition by their fellow countrymen. . In the east room of the White House at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon President Taft will present to the Inventors the gold medals awarded to them by the Aero Club of America to commemorate the invention of the first successful flying machine. The event is Intended to be one of national interest and to carry out this Idea the Aero Club of America invited the leading newspapers throughout the country to print editorials today appropriate to the occasion. The Governors of the various States have sent laudatory messages congratulating them on their" success. These, together with the resolutions adopted by the numerous scientific organizations and letters written by prominent scientists have been put In book form and will be presented to the Wrights. The Wright Brothers, after being entertained at luncheon by the Aero Club of Washington, will proceed to the White House. They will be presented to the President by Representative Herbert Parsons of New York, who will tell of their great achievements. In presenting the medals. President Taft will speak briefly. More than a thousand invitations were sent out for the White House ceremony. At its annual meeting last year the Aero Club of America, the pioneer aviation club In the United States, elected the Wrights to honorary membership and decided to award them each a gold medal. These were provided at a cost of $2,500, secured by subscriptions from its members. The medals bear the likenesses of the Wright brothers on one side and an inscription on the reverse side. A local committee was on hand to meet tha Wrights who were taken to the Cosmonic Club, where they will be entertained during the day. The letters written by govern ors of States and scientific bodies, which were presented to the Wright brothers today in book form at the same time that they received the Aero Club medals. Indicate the widespread Interest in the work of these two inventors and the views of public men regarding the future of aerial navigation. Some of the letters show a remarkable familiarity with the scientific problems of flight. The letter from Governor Noel of Mississippi, follows:: "Until very recent years the navigation of the air was limited to balloons filled with gas, which were subject to no control as to direction of flight, drifting with the air currents. Of late years, experimenters of the leading nations have devoted much time and thought to the problems offered, of being sustained In the air and of controlling and directing flight. The result of these endeavors has CHARITY WORKERS MEET IN BUFFALO Interesting Topics Scheduled for Today's Sessions Buffalo, June 10. The annual conference of the National Conference of Charities and Correction, which convened here last evening continued its work this morning. The topics for the dav are Immigrants' Children," and "Families and Neighborhoods." The conference will continue until Wednesday next, with morning and evening meetings. The afternoons will be devoted entirely to the entertainment of delegates. Today's conference was opened by C C Carstens. secretary and general agent of the society for the prevention of cruelty to children, Boston, in an address on the breaking up of families.

In the solution of this problem of aerial navigation, two Americans, Wrilbur and Orville Wright, have attained the largest success with the aeroplane. The dream of a few years ago has become a reality. The heavier-than-alr machine is now an accomplished fact. The demonstrations of the aeroplane in Europe by W'ilbur Wright have been the wonder and admiration of two hemispheres. The deplorable accident which happened to Orville Wright at Fort Meyer, when Lieutenant Thomas E. Selfridge was killed and Mr. Wright seriously wounded, causes us to realize that science claims its victims before success can be attained. "Whether aerial navigation will change the modern methods of warfare making war so terrible that nations will insist on universal peace, or will make most largely for the good and benefit of peace, as a carry power, is for, the future to prove. Certain it is that Americans should feel proud that the Wright Bros, have placed our great country in the forefront of aerial navigation. I rejoice that the Aero Club, of America has so wisely decided to present gold medals to these two who have advanced the standary of navigation of the air so far to the front and won their honors so modestly." Governor Harmon of ' Ohio, the home State of the Wrights, asserts that the people of Ohio take a special pride in Wilbur and Orville Wright because they have shown, as many others have done, that Ohio can win distinction in other ways than the furnishing of distinguished men for public life In the State and nation. "I congratulate the Wright Brothers and the Aero Club on the splendid progress which has been made In aeronautics," is the' sentiment expressed by Governor Stubbs of Kansas. Governor Davidson of Wisconsin says :"In common with the whole civilized world, I have been greatly interested in the experiments carried on by the Wright Brothers, and wish them all good things In the future." Dr. Ira ' Remson, president of the National Academy of Sciences, on behalf of that body congratulates the Wrights on their wonderful success, in which he pays tribute to their personal qualifications. "The problem upon which you are engaged is a scientific problem, and success in dealing with it can only be reached through the use of the scientific method. This method is not alone the possession of those trained in the universities. It is often unconsciously employed by those who are said to work by Intuition. One' who accomplishes great things by intuition Is called a genius. To this name you are fairly entitled." Expressing great faith in the future of the aeroplane, Governor Pernald of Maine pays tribute to the Wright Brothers. Governor Wilson of Kentucky sends greetings to W'ilbur and Orville Wright and rejoices in their achievements. A number of other letters from Governors and prominent people have been received. MERCHANT PRINCE OF PARIS IS BURIED Funeral of M. Cliauehard Makes Magnificent Spectacle Parts, June 10. Not for several years has Paris witnessed such a spectacle of pomp and magnificence as was seen today at the funeral of H. Chauchard from the Church of Madeleine. M. Chauchard was the proprietor of the Magasin du Louvre, the well known department store near the Palais Royal and died June 4, leaving a vast fortune. Since the death of the merchant prince his various legacies and his funeral have been almost the sole topic of conversation in the French capital. The church was beseiged. and it Is estimated that considerably more than half a million people crowded the streets along which the funeral procession was to take its way. While the good taste of M. Chauch-ard's friends brought about the suppression of the Gorgous Louis XV. cavalcade that was planned by the deceased, the obsequies were carried out on a royal scale. Starting from his residence in the Rue Velasquez, where the body has been lying In state, the Imposing procession, escorted bv a squadron of cuirassiers and several battalions of infantry, literally forced its way through the streets to the Madeleine.

This committee Is to report to the next Legislature. "I have declined the position offered me by the Attorney General." says Mr. Phillips in a statement. "In reaching this conclusion, I have been guided largely by what I believe to be my duty to the constituency which I represent, and which has honored me with an election to the Assembly for the past nine years. Since it has been rumored that the position of Deputy Attorney General had been oftered me, I have received various communica tions from citizens of my own district and outside of the district, urging me not to resign from the Assembly, ana many have written me requesting that I accept a renomination. I have re cently been named by the Speaker as a member of the Joint committee to investigate the question of direct nominations. This is an important sub ject, and the question whether our State should adopt It has given rise to considerable discussion and honest difference of opinion. As a Member of the Assembly.

Dr. Edward Everett Hale died In his home in Roxbury today. News of the death of the distinguished clergyman and chaplain of the United States Senate shocked Boston to an unusual degree because comparatively few knew that Dr. Hale was 111. A week ago he was present at a celebration In honor of the 90th birthday of Mrs. Julia Ward Howe, his con temporary In many of the reform movements with, which he' had been identified for more "than 50 years. To the family of the aged man It had been apparent for some time that his health was falling. In fact for- more than a month his children had been anxious. A few days ago heart weakness was noticed and his condition became alarming. His great age, 87 years, militated against him. Yesterday, however, he was up and about his apartment. In fact he had not been confined to his bed at any stage of his Illness. Dr. Hale retired at the usual time last evening, but his physician had noted evidences that led him to warn the immediate members of the family that the end was not far off. On this account he was not left alone. As the night passed he constantly became weaker until the end came, about 8 o'clock this morning. Grouped about Dr. Hale's bedside when the last feeble flicker of life was extinguished were Mrs. Hale, his wife; Philip L. Hale, his son, who Is an artist; Ellen, his daughter, and the family -. physician. The end came peacefully and quietly. It is recalled that on returning to Boston from Washington a few weeks ago, having temporarily relinquished his duties as chaplain of the Senate, Dr. Hale became ill on the train, but the Illness. was ascribed to a disorder VEILED PROPHETS IN WORCESTER Annual Convention Being Held In Massachusetts City , Worcester, Mass., June 10.

Dr. Hale had been a' distinguished figure on Boston streets, but his fame was worldwide. His tall figure, with Its wealth of shaggy hair and bushy beard, was a familiar one on the lecture platform and in the pulpit throughout the United States, and also In foreign lands. Washington, June 10 Dr. Hale had been chaplain of the -United States .Senate since 1893. His selection at that time to fill a vacancy was generally regarded as a high tribute to his accomplishments and Intellectual ability. Since his appointment he has been a very consistent attendant upon the sessions of the Henace and his Invocations at the opening of each day's proceedings, were so marked by eloquence, a keen appreciation of the events of the day and a warm sympathy with tha sufferings of humanity at large that few of the Senators failed to be In their seats when the gavel fell. Serious Inroads first appeared In his health about the beginning of the present calendar year. He was rather feeble on Inauguration Day and finally the first week in May he became so ill as to be obliged to cancel his engagement to deliver the Invocation upon the occasion of the unveiling of the statue or Longfellow In this city. He left Washington several days before that ceremony, never to return.

POLICE MAY HAVE PETROSINO'S SLAYER Arrests of Black Hand Gang; May 1 , Dl-K.'lose Assassin Toledo, June 10. Collogero Ficar-rlo, believed to be the leader of a band of so-called Black Hand extortionists, has been brought to jail here from Bellefontalne, where he was arrested by Postal Inspector Hosford, It is Intimated that the correspon dence captured with Ficarro connects him with a guilty knowledge of the recent assassination In Italy of Detec tive Petroslno, of the New York Po lice Department.

PRICE ONE CENT j SENATORS STILL" HOLD OUT FOR AN INCOME-TAX 'roposition to Substitute Impost on Receipts of Corporations May Fail ALDRICH SEES PRESIDENT Insurgents and Regular Republi cans as Far Apart as Ever on Tariff Bill " Washington, June 10. In the ef fort to bring together the warring elements among Republican Senators and present a solid party front in the passage of the pending; tariff bill Sen ator Aldrlch, chairman of the Finance Committee, has begun a canvass of the Senate to ascertain whether a common ground of agreement can be reached In the Imposition of a tax on the receipts or thre dividends- of corporations. The proposal for this agreement contemplates an abandon ment of the Income tax proposition. What progress has been made has not been disclosed, but discouraging pre dictions of the result of the canvass are discounted by Inside Information that has served to encourage those ' who have the matter In hand. The suggestion of this plan to bring the Senate Republicans Into harmony was the direct outcome of a conference between President Taft and Senator Aldrlch. The conference was held. It Is understood, at the Instance of Mr. Aldrlch, who explained to the President that the time had arrived when it was necessary for the Republicans In Congress, which included those of the House, to reach an understanding for the final disposition of the tariff controversy. Mr. Aldrlch, it Is disclosed, found Mr. Taft in entire sympathy with his desire that the pending tariff measure should be enacted In all its parts by a solid alignment of Republicans and not certain provisions for which the Democrats could claim equal credit with the Republicans, or, worse still, point to the fact that it was the Democratic Senators and Representatives, in co-operatton with a handful of insurgent Republicans, who had obtained Important changes against the votes of the great majority of Republican The Senate this afternoon will take a vote on the pending income tax Amendment, and it was particularly with a view to preventing affirmative action on this proposition that Mr. Aldrlch sought President Tart s aa-vice and counsel. The Senate leader's Invitation to the President to mane suggestions resulted in an expression by the President in ravor ot ine imposition of a tax on the dividends of corporations as a substitute for the income tax provision, it is understood that the President -found that Mr. Aldrlch was unwilling to father an amendment having that purpose In view unless the time for .which tne proposed tax would be imposed was limited to two years. Other plans for obtaining revenue without resorting to the Imposition of a tax on incomes were discussed, and Mr. Aldrlch began to make Inquiries as to how the insurgent Republicans, nearly all of whom are virtually committed to an income tax, view suggestions for taxing corporate wealth. As matters now stand the radical Republicans of the Senate are confronting the alternative of two propositions for obtaining revenue, either, If adopted, to be contingent on the abandonment of the attempt to write an income tax amendment in the tar-lff bill. One of these propositions is for a tax of two per cent on the dividends of corporations. The other Is for a tax of two per cent, on the net earnings of corporations of over 3100,-000. Both seem from surface Indications to have met with disfavor, but as a matter of fact each has a certain amount of attractiveness to some insurgents, and thei-e is a growing belief that one or the other or some new proposition for taxing corporations will be agreed on as a Republican measure to be substituted for the Income tax.
