IN NAMtLESS  GRAVES
Victims   of    Boyertown   Horror   ��    rned
Beyond   Recognition���Only   C.a-
Fifth Identified.
Hoyortown, Jan. 15.���Of tho more
than inr* person crushed or burned tn
death in Monday night's theatre dlsas-
ter, it is probable that more than half
will bfl laid away in nameless graves.
The morgues in which tbe bodies were
placed for identification were opened to
the public today.
So far as physicians and undertakers
could be certain from t he charred remains ami plot-lag only ten of the dead
were women antl girls and 4.{ were men,
and boys. So badly burned were the
other bodies that the sex could not be
determined ami it is probable they will
all be hurled in one plot in Union cemetery. Up to noon today thiny bodies
had been identilied by means of jewelry
or clothing.
Iloyortown. Jan. 15.���Most of the
bodies being recovered are in such condition thai few of them will be recognized hy the features alone. In nearly
every case the upi>er portions of the
bodies were burned to a crisp. Because
of the difficulty of identification and the
attendant confusion the coroner decid
ed to keep the morgues closed until today and during the morning the doors
of the buildings were thrown open.
Hundreds of people are waiting al each
place (o get a look at (he bodies in
_Opfi of finding the remains of loved
ones.
Jacob JohnBon, who wuh burned In tbe
made rush for exit from the burning
building,  died   this  morning.
Coroner BtffcUttQ is making an investigation preliminary to the official inquest.
"It wus the saddest pldtura I over
looked upon." he said. ".No living soul
can depict the scene. II was simply
IndMOribable. 1 shall make a thorough
investigation leading up to what 1 consider the most horrible event that ever
occurred   in   eastern  Penn lylvania."
Tho coroner's attention vah called to
tho fact that oil lamps were used for
foot lights iu the opera house In place
of a stationary illumination. lh< said
he  would  make a thorough   Inquiry.
Henry W. B_Mber, Of Curlyle. the operator of tiie machine, which was the
original cause of the terrible disaster.
was severely burned.    He said:
"The accident to the calcium light
was caused by a cap In one of the tanks
blowing out. This caused a sharp report, and a flash which started the people in the audience, i stuck to my apparatus, and Anally got the leak repair
ed and succeeded in quieting the alurm
ed people. Just us I hnd them calmed
the foolish action of some thoroughly
frightened person on the stage caused
the over-setting of tho foot light lamps
and the consequent spread of the II a me.*;
which nothing could avert. Not until
than illd I desert my poat and seek my
own safety  in  flight."

WHAT CHANGE PORTENDS
London  Opinion of  Late  Acquisition of
Times   by Tariff   Reform
Advocates.
London, Jan. 15.���The announcement
that the Times Is about to change
hands has fallen like a mighty bombshell on the British nation. It is no
exaggeration to say that it is regarded
as a matter of almost national concern.
The Times, which has so long been
a national institution, has been obtained
by the Imperial Tariff Reform League.
with Mr. Charles Arthur Pearson, first
chairman of the league, as controller.
The Times has recently been sitting on
the fenee, and occasionally coquetting
with the Tariff Keform Leagues and at
times tipping a friendly wink tu the
free traders. The followers of Cobdeu
have made efforts to capture tne Tbund-
eiei, as the T���nee has ever been known,
but they showed timidity.
The tariff reformers have decided to
hotd their banner high at the next general election, and believing that the
hulk of the electors will come to their
standard, have captuied the greatest of
Knglish  newspapers.
It Is known that some monies ego
the counductors of the Times were in
negotiation for political and finaiicial
support of some distinguished free
trade Unionists whose^jiames are as
familiar as household words. The tariff
reform section of the Unionist pai y
heard of these negotiations and romped
in with QfVera which have resulted in
the situatlou in which "The Asylum ot
the World," aa Kinglake finely described the Thunderer halt a century ago,
passed into the hands of the league,
with the establishment of Mr. Pearson
as controller, although Mr. A. Walter
will for a while continue as the titular
head of the paper.
In September last the Times commenced to sprinkle cold water on the
proposals for tariff reform, but in November the douche was quite copious.
The editor said that however great may
be the importance of tariff reform, it Is
not urgent in the same sense us the
other questions.
A leading member of the Tariff Reform league remarked that great statesmen are all greater when they have the
ass stance of the press in promulgating
their proposals. Without the press no
enterprise requiring the cooperation of
large bodies of people, necessarily scattered, could over be undertaken, nor
could political institutions whose stabil
Ity depends on tho wide consensus of
public opinion  endure.
It is well known that In recent years
many British manufacturers have trans
ferred their factories wholly or in part
to foreign countries in order to escape
tmgQrt duties and to obtain the advantage of cheaper foreign labor. The effect of this migration Is that British
capital and skill and the Inventiveness
snd commercial energy of British em-
|.:>vers ure now used to provide employment and wages for foreign instead of
for British workmen.
Mr Pearson Is a great believer In
the streiuious life It Is one of his say
tugs that his success is due to the habit
he cnntr;:eted when young of never
wasting time.
In LSOfl the office of one of his papers,
the LeUvstei Kvenlng News, was burn
ed down, and while the building wns
HtlH In flames the Leicester Kvenlng
News was sellim* in the streets as usual
With his invariable resourcefulness and
energy. Mi. Pearson had rented a paper
ln a town thirty miles away and sent it
down by train It continued to appear
without interruption. What will happen
to the staff on the Times when this
champion hustler goes among them"
Cnill now to get an appointment on the
Times staff was like getting a position
In the Bnnk of Kngiand or in a govern
ment department, but there Is no flxlt>
'if tenure nu an\ of Mr. Pearson's papers, so thut the feeling of the Oh!
Brigade In Printing House Square can
be better imagined than described.
Nearly all the managers of the staff are
barristers-al law. and the hulk of them
ate shivering tn their shoes tonight.
Thev feel tbat the internal revolution
which lad I'J the establishment of Mr.
Pearson as controller meuns bitter bus!
ne-ss foi- them.
Sir Alexander Henderson, who i-*
ohietly associated with Mr. Pearson In
thin Important deal, was a member of
the TarirT Commission. He ulso was
assoelateil with Mr. Pearson In the put
Qhase of the London Standard and the
amalgamation Of the Kvenlng Standard
and the St. James' Gnaette.

JAPAN'S
More Ministers Resign
Portfolios
MAY FORCE DISSOLUTION
Premier Saionji and Remaining Colleagues in Minority���Changes
of Ambassadors.
Tokio, Jan. 15.���An accurate prediction concerning the probable life of the
.Marquis Saionji's cabinet Is difficult. The
problem of the cabinet Is to avert a
climax and the resignations of the ministers of finance and communication has
created a sensation approaching a po-
lit.cal crisis. The opposition and even
friends of the government are apparently determined to force Uie government
to appeal to the country. With an unpopular budget the counstitutionalisls
lack nine votes of an actual majority in
the lower house.
Honolulu, Jan. 15.���Viscount Aoki, the
retiring Japanese ambassador to the
United States, and Governor Hear, of
Hawaii, arrived here yesterday from
San Francisco on the steamer Manchuria.
Honolulu. Jan. 15.���A local Japanese
newspaper printed an Interview with
Viscount Aoki, late Japanese Ambassador to America, in which Viscount Aoki
says as follows:
"I do not approve of manual laborers
g<;fng to America. They cannot expect
after Japan's long isolation, to establish
themselves in any western country. The
destiny and opportunity of Japan are in
Asia, in Korea and  Manchuria."
Viscount. Aoki also expressed himself
as opposed to Japanese seeking naturalization in America for the reason that
citizenship is only needed by those
who contemplated permanent residence.
Tokio, Jan. 15.���Na kasha ko. vice
minister of communications, resigned
today. He will be succeeded by MuzuUa
of  the  railroad   bureau.
Home. Jan. 15.���Islaron Kerogo Takahira, who will succeed Viscount Aoki
as Japanese ambassador to the United

ence by King Victor Emmanuel today

PROVING THE OBVIOUS
Many Witnesses Called to Testify That
Harry  Thaw's  Conduct   Was
Irrational.
Lull in ComUat.
London, Jan. 15.���The fact that late
last night the Cunard Steamship company had not responded to the White
Star's further cut in rates leads to the
idea in some quarters thnt the former
nut) be considering the advisability of
agreeing to a compromise, based on
slight differential rates with itspcnt to
the Lusltanla aud Mauretania. It h.
noted that the White Star circular does
not affect the Canadian rate. This la
supposed to have as Its object the avert
ing of a cut In rutes by the direct Can-
udlan linos which is sutd to hnve been
contemplated.
Irish Regalia Mystery.
London, Jan. 15.���The Tribune honrs
from a source which It regards us trust
worthy, that the missing IrlHh regali;
is held intact for a large ransom and a
guarantee of immunity from punish
ment. It says that the mystery of the
disappearance can, however, only be
solved hy a public inquiry, which would
reveal   amazing and   lomuntlc  features.
New York, Jan. 15.���Dr. H. C. Wood.
Philadelphia, was called to the stand as
the first witness fn the Thaw trial today. Dr. Wood some years ago made an
examination of Harriett Alice Thaw, a
reiutlve of the defendant. District Attorney Jerome objected to t he physician's testimony but was overruled by
the court, as the relation of attending
physician aud patient did not exist in
this case. Dr. Wood said that Miss Thaw
was of unsound  mind.
New York, Jan. 15.���Many witnesses
entirely new to the case, testified at the
trial of Harry K. Thaw today and told
stories of his eccentricities during the
years Immediately preceding the killing
of Stanford White. They all declared
he impressed them as being irrational.
The most interesting testimony was
that of Christopher Kgan of the New
York Whist club, who told of Thaw's
doings tbe day of the tragedy, and who,
under cross-examination hy District Attorney Jerome, gave amusing details oi^
a whist game in which Thaw and several men of prominence participated.
Miss Mltalda Stein, who was a telephone operator at the Grand hotel In
PjOsI when Thaw was a guest there, was
file next witness. She said she knew
Thaw under the name of Farr. " She had
often seen him and his eyes were always staring und bulging. His manner
was irrational. One morning Thaw put
in 75 telephone calls ln less than three
hours. One morning he ordered his
breakfast three times in twenty minutes.
Here District Attorney Jerome objected.
He said a man did not have to live long
at a New York hotel to know that he
had often to order his breakfast more
than three times before he got it.
In cross examination Miss Stein s-aid
Kvelyn Nesbitt was also a guest at the
Grand, under the name of Miss Farr.
"Waant It the morning after she left
that the 75 culls were put In?" asked
District Attorney Jerome.
The witness was sure it was not because Miss Nesbitt put In several that
day herself, one, the witness Bald, was
to  Burr  Mcintosh.
Mrs. Carolyn Lowery and Wm. A.
Johnson, newspaper writers, who witnessed the tragedy, declared in turn
upon the stand that Thaw impressed
them as decidedly irrational. Lionel
Straus, a portrait painter, another witness who testified at the ltisi trial, ulso
Characterised Thaw's actions aa irrational.
Francis McGuiness, who wus a member of the coroner's jury which con-
dueled tiie inquest on Stanford White's
death, testified that Thaw at the inquest
appeared  Irrational.

Milling; Company Was Customer of
City Power Plant to Extent of
$20,000 a Year.
Kenora. Jan. 15.���The magnificent
new mill of the Maple Leaf Flour Mills
Company valued at over a million dollars, was burned last night. Only Uie
wall is left standing. It is said the
lire originated by a live wire. The Maple Leaf mill was one of the lina.-i mills
on the continent and had a capacity of
five thousand barrels a day. The mill
has only been completed and was a
laoon to the town as It employed a large
a,umber of men.
Kenora, Jan. 15.���A lire which directly and indirectly caused a loss of one
million dollars last night, destroyed the
newly completely and equipped Maple
Leaf mills hurt- including elevator and
warehouse. The flra was first discovered on the roof of the main building
about half-past nine but, backed with
wind, the work waa hopeless at .first.
The tank at the top of the building,
which should have been full, was found
to be empty. Shortly after 11 o'clock
the north wall of solid concrete fell and
the south wall followed shortly after.
The heat was Intense and the sight was
spectacular tn the extreme. The brigade
was forced to concentrate their efforts
on saving neighboring residential property. D. C. Cameron, of Winnipeg, president of the Rat Portage Lumber company, who left the city for the Pacific
coast last night, ls president of the company which numbers many Kenora
shareholders. Tlie mills were only
formally opened on December 12th. The
mill whs under contract to take municipal power to the extent of $20,0(10
annually and the loss of this will seriously cripple the municipal power plant.
The amount of Insurance cannot be ascertained at present.
NEW USE FOR BALLOONS.
European    Doctors    Recommend   Dally
Ascension  for Consumptives.
Munich, Jan. 15.���The knell of Davos
and other Alpine resorts frequented by
consumptives Is sounded by an evergrowing band of continental medical
men. who are advocating th-* "balloon
cure" for tuberculosis.
Go up in a balloon every day, Is the
udvlce of these doctors to consumptives.
The cure has many advantages. Lack
of expense ls one of them. It Is far
cheaper to keep a bullnon In your back
garden In tlie suburbs and take your
dully two hours up above the clouds
thun to have to go away und live in expensive hotels foi- mouths at a time.
It Is also claimed for the "balloon
cure" that such ��� wide range af altl-
tuale ls obtainable lay moans of a balloon
that It makes It far superior treatment
to that of ordering a patient away to
some Alpine village, whore, oven with
hard exorcise, he cannot vary his altitude by more than a few hundred feot
a day. fl
ln a paper he road recently before
the Academy of Science, M. Christian
ltt'ck, a well known scientist, declare*
that the balloon treatment could be carried on In conditions Impossible of attainment ln any muuntatn resaart.
In a ballaion. he Bald, the patients
could lae convoyed In a few moment*
into a:, atmosphere where neither mineral nor vegetable particles were present In the air which would also he hac-
terloluglt:ttlly pure.
The dose can euslly be rogulated. the
patient being able to breathe air at any
altitude the physician thinks beat for
him.
Kvon on the foggiest London days
he can ascend thranmh the clouds Into
an atm.asphere of perfect purity, and,
sitting well wrapped up tn the car. a.n-
joy the keen, pure ulr and bright sunshine denied to his unfortunate fellow-
creutures below.

American   Cities   on   Pacific   Waking   to
Possible    Danger.
Washington. Jan. 16,���Calif orn ians
are becoming somewhat alarmed over
what they believe to be the lack of proper defence of their seacoast, and the
alleged failure of the governmenl thus
far to make adequate preparations to.
protect coast cities In the event of war
with Japan. An evidence of the alarm
which is felt and the demand for better
protection is contained in a petition in
the form of a set of resolutions hy the
San Francisco Chamber of Commerce
presented to the house by Representative Needham. The resolutions nsk for
legi-slution which will provide for the
construction of u number of submarine
torpedo boats of the most improved
type "for the defence of the harbor of
Sun  Francisco und  other Pacific  coast
ports."
A similar fellng exists in Seattle,
and representatives form thai state ure
se. king to have similar boats built, to
in- Btationed in Pugel Sound. At present there are only two submarine torpedo boats on   the   Pacific  cojust.

Lawlessness   Due   to   Agitation   Led   by
Ambitious   Politicians.
"Never Indeed,** -says the Westminster
Review, "were the prospects of a peaceful and contented Ireland more dark
than they are today." Those who have
read about Mr. cftiuell and the cuttle-
driving movement., now happily checked,
will understand that in many Irish districts law has In-en defied for months.
Cattle have been stolen and in at least
one instance roasted alive. Attempts
have been made to dynamite the residences of persons obnoxious to the Irish
League; boycottlngs of the most cruel
description have been enforced, and
tyranny has prevailed. There can be
no doubt that, this condition is due not
to any depravity to which Irishmen
are particularly disposed, but to polities.
This is tbe view the Westminster He-
view takes, and it urges the necessity
for the present NatlonuliBt party to be
wiped out of existence, and room made
for another set of public men, who can
do no worse, and may do far better than
their predecessors. The present outfit
ha.s no mandate to speak for Ireland as
a nation. Some years ago the Nationalists were returned to power to see that
the tenants of Ireland received justice,
and were secured on their holdings.
Now their mandate is exhausted. Indeed, it is charged by a part of the
moderate   Nationalist     press     tha*  the

Nationalist party has done all in its
power to prevent the smooth working
of the machinery provided by tbe Land
Acts. The Irish People cites an example in the case of the tenants of Sir
Roger Palmer, who desired to buy their
land. The owner was willing, and the
EDiftates court was ready to act, when
the Nationalibt "niaclune" intervened
and the deal was stopped. In a recent
SP006_ Mr. Dillon is reported to have
said: "The Act has worked far too
smoothly, and 1 wish to heaven I had
the power to obstruct It more."
Incidents of this kind give color to
the oid contention that the Nationalists
realize that, if peace were to be restored
In Ireland their occupation would be
gone. Their scornful rejection of Mr.
UirrelPB Irish Councils Bill was the act
rather or irresponsible politicians. The
defect---in that Act, so far as the Nationalists were concerned, was its provision
for proportionate represeutation of the
minority. Apart from this clause, which
was necessary if the Protestants or the
country were to submit to the measure,
the bill contained several concessions
for which the Nationalists have been
loudly clamoring. Ry refusing the bill
the Nationalists frightened away a lot
Of English Liberals who believe in self-
government, but fear that under Home
Rule the minority might suffer. The
Birrell bill attempted to safeguard Lhe
rights of the minority, and It was rejected for this reason, what chance
would the minority have under complete
Home Rule?
There ts little doubt In the opinion
of the Westminster Review, that the
Hirrell hill would have proved very acceptable to the majority of the Irish
voters who keep the Nationalists in
power, for they are much more concerned In small and immediate concessions than in the far distant ideal of
Home Rule. For example, the Irish
tenant farmers are greatly pleased with
the Land Acts, which were denounced
by the Nationalist politicians, and are
now obstructed. It seems plain, then,
that on two of the most important
pieces of legislation that have been offered to the people of Ireland for a do-
cade the Nationalist politicians have
not represented the wishes of their con-
stiuiente. Nothing is more certain than
that to the Protestants of the country,
Conservative or Liberal. There is truth,
therefore, in the claim that they have
exhausted their mandate, and are in no
sense representative of the Irish nation.
Says the Review: "Ireland today
stands more in need of strong men to
guide her destinies and control the fanatical tendencies of lhe less educated
of the people, inflamed as they have
been for years by self-seeking politicians
and professional agitators, than she has
ever been before. She requires above
all a policy which will take every advantage of the benefit of English million which have been poured into the
country to give the people fixity of tenure on the land���a policy In which the
laborers should have their rightful
���bare; a policy of equal rights and opportunities for all and ascendency for
none���a policy of educating the country
and tackling tbe housing and sanitary
problems, aud how best to develop the
industries of the country and bring capital  into It once more."
It must be said that these things are
rarely mentioned In parliament hy the
Nationalists, who seem to prefer opening old wounds inflicted in the days of
the Commonwealth. Even the little
group (d Nationalist politicians is not
united, but is divided into main divisions���Redniondltos and O'Rrlenites���
und Into sub-di** is inm- of DilhmitcH,
llealyites and perhaps Glnnellites. Ireland could do no worse by making an
experiment, with new untried men.

Historical  Sketch.
Under the caption. "Passing of the
Made Beaver Standard," K. K. Heeston
contributed to the Manitoba Free Press
of Jan. 12th an historical sketch of the
operations of the Hudson's Hay company, of which he was an ofheer for
many years. Tlie article, which covers
a page and a half of the Free Press, besides being eminently readable contains
a vast store of interesting and valuable
information. The work required to obtain the results iu condensed form may
be judged from the fact that the
amounts ot transactions in the company's various departments during the
period dealt with in detail, run into
many millions sterling. The apeeial ob
ject of the article is to describe the
transition from an almost exclusively
fur-trading company to a great chain of
general   depart men tal   stores.
