General Clncinnatus Leconte, president of
tho republic of Haiti, perished today in
a fire which destroyed the national pal
ace. It was caused by an explosion of the
powder magazine attached to the palace.
Lf.tcr Investigation showed that the
casualty list !n dead and wounded
p mounted to 400 persona.
Tho explosion occurred at 3.15 o'clock
this morning and the shock shattered the
palace.' Fire followed quickly and the
palace, R wooden structure, was con
tained within half an hour. There were
a great number of explosions of muni
tions of war which had been stored in
the cellars below.
All the houses around the palace were
greatly damaged, but as the palace itself
was isolated, the firemen succeeded in
their efforts to localize the fire.
The members of the family of the presi

the time, were saved, but President Le

When the regime of Nord Alexia was

Leconte went into exile in Jamaica.
While there he Intrigued against the new
president, Simon, and in January, 1911,
started a revolution against him, which
was, however, short lived. The Insur

refuge in the German consulate at Cape

Jewelers Want the
Time by Wireless
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Aug. S.-Here-after
the purchaser of a gold plated
watch takes tho chances. The old In
scription, "guaranteed for twenty years"
became entirely too common, and so
far as the American National Retail
Jewelers association is concerned Its
virtue now Is nothing. A resolution was
adopted at the convention of the as
sociation today, abolishing the time
guarantee on gold plated watches and
The guarantee stamp, Jewelers say had
gradually come to be placed on all
plated ware by responsible and Irrespon
sible Arms alike. If the gold plate did
not last the full time limit, which usually
is the case in the cheaper grades or
watches and Jewelry, the retailer had to
stand the loss.
Following an address by II. E. Duncan
of Waltham, Mass., a resolution was
adopted providing that a committee ar
range witn the United States government
for wlieless time service for the Jewelers.
The plan Is that every Jeweler shall have
a receiver to catch the time flashed from
the new government wireless station at
Arlington. More accurate setting and
regulation of watches than now Is com
,mon would -follow, It was said. ,
The convention planned to elect officers
this afternoon. -

A. V. Johnson, president of the club,
would have nothing to say today, "but
Intimated that ho would say many things
at th cnext meeting of th eclub.
John M. Devlne, when seen, only smiled
and quoted Scripture. When Devlne be
gins to quote Scripture It means that he
Is thinking Komethlng entirely different
and more explosive.
i Colonel John G. Maher, vice president
of the club, had a whole lot bo Say. "If
Mr. Bryan desires to prevent all those
democrats who ovted for Harmon and
Clark at the Nebraska primaries from
participating as democrats, any club be
might form in Lincoln would be a mighty
small one," said he.
"There Is a strong suspicion," continued
Colonel Maher, "that Mr. Bryan does not
want to sec the democratic state ticket
elect?d and that he would not feel bad
If the democrutlc candidate for the United
States senate was also defeated. It was
tho talk at the democratic state conven
tion In Grund Island that If Byrnes was
elected chairman, or if Bryun was turned
down, that he would not support the
slate ticket. It was also stated that a
telegram had been received from George
W. Nortls, republican candidate for the
United States senate, that If tho conven
tion failed to endorse the action of Mr.
Bryan, or if It elected Byrnes chairman,
that Norrls would go out over the state
and talk Bryan stronger than any other
man in Nebraska. While many demo
crats at the convention felt like scorching
Mr. Bryan for his treachery In the Champ
Clark matter, they felt that Bryan was
only looking for an excuse to go out and
fight the democratic state ticket and that
such action would give him the oppor
tunity he wanted."
Trouhlr In I.anvasler.
In all probability tho ambition of Frank
P. Corrlck for so long to be chairman of
the icpubllcan state committee, which
was denied him when Chairman Kelfer
was elected a few years ago, ' will be
gratified when the state committee meets
next Tuesday. The opposition which
showed itself In the state convention
when Paul Clark attempted . to steam
roller the convention Into a proposition
of endorsing Corrlck for the Job, seems
to have not amounted to enough to work
any serious objections to the choice.
Corrlck has the backing of both Con
