KANSAS CITY, Mo, July 5. Late to
day the creditors' committee of the C.
J. Devlin estate, drafted an address which
was immediately forwarded to all creditors
of the Devlin properties, asking that they
meet at Kansas City on July 31 to con
sider the situation, and urging that in
the meantime no legal action be taken.
Alexander New of the firm of attorneys
for the creditors, who today filed bank
ruptcy proceedings at Topeka, said that
the situutlon was so complicated that It
would be Impossible to make any intelli
gent forecast of the final result. It was
absolutely necessary, he said, to take some
step to preserve the asset and prevent
preferences by attachment or otherwise,
and for this reason the bankruptcy pro
ceedings were brought.

SUMMARY OF CROP CONDITIONS
Corn Is In Good ghane Except Where
the Halns Have Retarded
WASHINGTON. July O.-The weather
bureau's weekly bulletin summarises crop
conditions as follows:
The northern districts of the country
experienced temperatures too low for rapid
growth, but In the southern states the tem
peratures were highly favorable. Ex
cessively heavy rains from the central and
west gulf districts northward over the
western portion of the central valleys,
while relieving the drought in Missouri,
were injurious in places and Interfered ex
tensively with cultivation. Tho conditions
on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts were
generally favored. Rain is much needed
In the southern plateau region. Corn has
made excellent progress over tho greater
part of the corn belt and, except in the
upper Missouri and lower Ohio valleys
where rains have retarded cultivation, the
crop is clean and well advanced. Consider

belt and Is practically finished In Illinois,
Missouri and eastern Kansas. Rain has
caused Injury to grain in shock In Texas

CREW ISSUES MANIFESTO
Mutineer Declare that a 8tate of Ciril
War Elista in Russia.
FOREIGN SHIPS WILL NOT BE MOLESTED
Knlaa Poteinklne Visits Theodoaia
and Levies Tribute of Coal,
Provisions and Medi
cines. ST. PETERSBURG, July 6.-2:15 a. m.
Whlus no official confirmation is obtain
able the Associated Press has been In
formed by an authority usually reliable
that the authorities has received reports
that the Knlax Potemklne, ' after shipping
coal, medicines and provisions. Is again at
largo in the Black sea and her destina
tion Is unknown. Whether tho report of
the sailing of the battles. ,lp is true or not,
the crew took a remarkable step when,
with all the solemnity of a provisional
government. It Issued a manifesto to the
powers announcing that civil war had been
begun against tho existing regime In Rus
sia and pledging tho Inviolability of for
eign shipping und foreign ports.
This action doubtless was taken to quiet
the apprehensions of foreign power and
to leave no excuse for the sending of
warships through the Dardanelles to ef
fect the capture of tho battleship, which,
until now, Russia's Ulack sea tleet has
not dared to attempt. It Is considered a
shrewd move on the part of the mutineer
and stamps tho commander of the crew
as a leader far above the class of tie
ordinary sailor and strengthens the opin
ion that he Is not a member of the original
crew, but one of the revolutionaries who
went on board at Odessa.
Manifesto Lends Olanlty.
The issuance of the manifesto lends a
certain dignity to tho mutiny and proves
that the crew and their commander have
no desire that the world should believe
them to be mere outlaws, but that they
should be looked upon as men seriously
raising the standard of revolution.
Nothing has been received to confirm
the supposition that tho request for a doc
tor at Theodosla Indicated a struggle for
supremacy on the warship on the way from
KusenJI. According to a rumor printed
In an afternoon paper the ship's strong
box contained $375,00O and the mutineers
would therefore be well supplied with
In circles closely In touch with the revo
lutionists It is regarded ns a foregone con
clusion that the commander of the Knlas
Potemklne, knowing the situation In the
Caucasus, will head for Poti or Batoum,
where the revolutionists are exceedingly
strong, In the hope of producing a general
rising. With the authorities in the Cau
casus almost powerless to prevent it, such
a'contingency Is by no means impossible.
General Strike In Tint.
Dispatches from Tlflls received last night
say that reports of the rioting at Odessa
and the action of the Knlas Potemklne
have aroused the most Intense Interest
and the wildest joy among the revolulon-
The receipt of the report was followed
immediately by a complete strike, even
the lamplighters quitting work. The city
is In darkness and the Inhabitants gen
erally are fleeing to the northward.
Tho Emperor Nicholas II., crew of which
Is reported to have mutinied at Constanti
nople, Is a Russia nmerchantman.
Considerable anxiety is felt because the
cruiser Chernomoretz, which was due at
Sevastopol Monday, has not yet arrived.
Order has not been restored at Blelostok.
A censored telegram received last night
reports that shooting, has beo heard; that
crowds are fleeing and that wild excitement
prevails, but no details are given.
Criticise arsl System.
With publication In the official Messenger
of the official account of the tragedy at
Odessa tho hand of the censorship Is raised
and all papers are filled with columns upon
columns of accounts from the foreign pa
pers. Leaving aside the machinations of
the revolutionists the press with one voice
declares that the mutinies on board ships
of the Black sea fleet were the result of
the rotten system In vogue In the Russian
navy, the bluejackets being utterly neg
lected and the officers living ashore except
during the brief cruises. Captain Clado
In a long review affirms that the question
of food was a more pretext,, the real cause
being deeper, in the complete lack of sym
pathy between the men and their officers,
most of whom, he says, are disgust
ingly Incompetent. Owing their positions
to Influence at St. Petersburg, they
care nothing for good service or the well
being and contentment of the men. Other
writers, some of whom evidently are high
In the service, but who write under as
sumed names, in a most savage fashion
declare that the bureaucratic regime in the
navy Is only reaping what It has sown
and plainly Intimate that slmlar condl
tlons exist in the army.
"Fear," says thj Slovo, "Is the sole
basis of discipline in the army and navy,
and it will prove as poor an Instrument
for keeping the rank and file loyal to the
throne as It has In the suppression of dis
content among the people. The govern
ment should learn the lesson that the sol
diers and .sailors are beginning to awaken,
as the people have already awakened."
Cossacks IJlaper.e Strikers.
Cossacks fired on the Putlloff
works' strikers this morning. The
trouble was Btarted by the ar
rest of a youth who was entering the
works. The policemen who took him Into
custody suspected the young man of having
dynamite In bis possession. The latter, on
being made a prisoner, drew a revolver and
killed the policeman and was himself
wounded by a bullet fired by another po
liceman. The strikers quickly congregated
on the Peterhoff road and Cossacks were
ordered to disperse them. The soldiers
charged, using their whips, and then fired
a volley, causing several casualties among
the strikers. The excitement in the dis
trict 1 intense.
An Independent investigation made by
the Associated Press show that the sol
diers did not fire on the Putlloff work
men, but there was more or less riot
ing, during which some of the strikers
fired revolvers and officers were stoned.
Revolutionary proclamations were scat
tered broadcast among the crowds and
many arrests were made. At ( o'clock this
evening Cossacks and infantry patrols
were about the works and the men were
In an ugly mood. The managers of the
works threatened to close them Indefin
itely if the men do not resume work to
morrow. Crew Proclaims Revolution.
THEODOSIA, Crimea, July 6. Summoned
by the Knlas Potemklne, representatives
of the town council went on board the bat
tleship and were received in the admiral'
cabin by the commission commanding it.
The commission demanded the delivery of
6"0 tons of coal and provisions of various
kinds within twenty-four hours, and
threatened that in the event of non-compliance,
after the warning to the inhab
itants, the town would be bombarded.
The commission also proposed that the
mayor should transmit to the population
a proclamation demanding the termina
tion of the war, a convocation of xcmatvos,
Learning of these demands many In
habitants fled the town. The workmen
Insisted that the demands be granted.
A special meeting of the municipal coun
cil wu sailed aad the council consented
to deliver the provisions, but refused to
ccmply with the demand of coal, for the
reason thnt the town had none.
Tho mutiners of the Knlas potemklne

She ran screaming to the next room
and lay on the bed in the hopes of ex
tinguishing the blaze from her flaming
clothing, but lying down only served to
spread the flames.
The 3-year-old baby girl, who was in the
room at the time of the explosion, was
laved from death by the bravery and
presence of mind of Mrs. Johnson's 12-year-old
daughter, Selma, who ran Into
the kitchen, where the flames wero then
spreading, and got the child and carried
her to a neighbor's In safety. It was only
a few minutes after the flames caught to
Mrs. Johnson's clothing that she died In
great agony. There was no one nt home
nt the time of the accident except the
baby girl and Selma. Neighbors who saw
the fire turned in the alarm.
Edward Morgan of 1618 North Seven

Preceding the festival by an unanimous
vote a telegram was ordered sent to Rev.
Francis E. Clark, who Is 111 at his home
in Maine, pledging loyalty to the Chris
tian Endeavor movement and praying for
tils speedy recovery.
A proposal originating outside of tho offi
cers of the I'nlted society has been made,
looking to the establishment of a memorial
fund to aid the society to accomplish still
more In the future and especially In loving
honor of Dr. Francis E. Clark, the founder
of this world's movement for the religious
training of the young.
Tho suggestion Is that the fund bo known
as the quarter century memorial fund and
that it be made up of contributions to
average 5 cents (1 cent for each year of
the life of the society, reckoning from
next year) from each member of the or
ganisation. As the membership Is in the
neighborhood of 8,000,000 a fund of about
$2,000,000 would be realized. It Is suggested
that the best plan for the Investment of
such a fund would be the erection of a
building part of which would be for tho
use of supplying income, and part used
as international Christian Endeavor head
quarters. At the meeting of trustees toiiay
this plan was, by vote, heartily approved
and the executive committee was requested
to appoint an International committee to
take charge of the matter.
