was ,-naoled to accomplish what the French
firemen, inadequately equipped but equally
Plucky and well disciplined, could not «ven at
tempt At first the Oennao salvage corps in
their Preplan mlforms were somewhat coldly
received by the French mining authorities at
Courrterea. hut soon the Frenchmen appre
ciated the spirit in which they had come. Tho
enthusiasm that began in the mining district
extends to-day throughout France, and gives
a stirring impetus to the friendly feeling to
ward Germany. Bubecriptlons from Uerman
towns are pouring into France In aid of the
victims of the Courrieres explosion, the West
phallan mining syndicate alone forwarding
125,000. The Westphelian salvage corps, leav
ing eight of its members at Courrler for
unexpected emergencies, departed amidst in
describable enthusiasm. Handkerchiefs and
hats were waved and shouts resounded of
"Long live the German salvage corps!" The
Parisian firemen on duty at Courrier^s gave
their Prussian colleagues hearty cheers, and a
btg French soldier exclaimed: "In spite of Mo
rocco we are downright good friends and com
rades." This supplies the keynote of the situ
ation In Paris and throughout France.
ONE CAUSE FOR GREAT MISF DISASTER.
M. Curlot. professor at the Central School of
Mines, whose authority Is recognized In scien
tific circles in Europe and America, anticipates
the result of Judicial and technical inquiries
by stating that one of the causes which In
creased the extent of the Courrlerefl disaster Is
the new conception of the organization of pits.
T:.. Higher Board of Mines in order to obviate
the danger of Inundations decided that several
pits shouid be united. In this way the drainage
of water could be more easily effected In case
of inundation. The Board, however, did not
foresee everything, so the explosion of last Sat
urday, Instead of being localized in one pit,
spread to the others and quadrupled the num
ber of victims. Professor Curiot severely hlarrxis
the companies owning the collleri* for unpar
donable neglect In failing to keep level with
the efficient measures prevailing in Westphalian
mines fnr salvage and rescue in coal pits. Pro
fessor Curiot states that the German organiza
tion for such purposes is superior to anything
yet realized in Europe or America, and urges
that it should be adopted at once in all French

In other words 1t is the result of a temporary

REPRESSION AT POLLS.
PROTESTS SENT TO CZAR.
Reactionary Party at Court Still
Strong — Refugees Shot.
St. Petersburg. March Charges of inter
ference on the part of the local police officials
to prevent free expression of the will of the
peasants in the Preliminary elections are In
creasing. The "..I^ha Shlsn says that at rural
elections in the St. Petersburg province tha au
thorities everywhere forbade popular meetings
called by Liberals, but did not Interfere with
meetings called by priests and other reaction
ary elements. In many places the peasants
were afraid to vote on account of the police at
the polls. Hundreds of representatives of the
Liberal parties were arrested, and In some cases
there were military demonstrations. The gov
ernment agents, openly threatened repressive
measures if certain cersons were elected. The
peasants from thr>»e districts have sent telegrams
of protest to Emperor Nicholas. One of the
peasant districts drew up Instructions to its
delegates to vote for the expropriation of crown
and state lands and a part of the private lands.
The "Nasha Sllisn" charges that the Conserva
tive results of the elections wire dae solely to
repression. While the returns generally show a
large proportion of priests and village elders
elected, in some of the provinces, especially In
the West, the peasants displayed greai Inde
pendence at their meetings and talked only of
a division of lands. Their hostility toward
the noblemen and big landlords was intense,
and they defeated all the priest3 and village of
There Is already evidence that only a check
and not a defeat has been adminlsiered to the
reactionists who are conducting the anti-semi

forced the Cabinet to decide to sn

leaders to inform him whenever thj Jewish in
