In a Washington special to the Rec
An understanding has been reached
finally between President Roosevelt
and Senator Hanna in regard to the
presidential nomination. It is an ar
rangement highly satisfactory to both
and has an important bearing upon
the political situation.
The understanding is to this effect:
Senator Han na is not a candidate
for the presidential nomination and
will not be a candidate. No ef
fort Is to be made to work up a move
ment for him or to secure delegates
friendly to his nomination. Senator
Hanna is not to make any further an
nouncement of his attitude. He is not
to declare himself for the nomina
tion of the president, nor to announce
that he will not be a candidate under
any circumstances, nor to say any
thing else in regard to the situation
He does not favor instruction, and
doubtless will see to it that no in
structions are given the delegates at
large elected from his own state.
Mr. Hanna's attitude is that the
convention should be left free handed
as far as possible, able to deal as a
deliberate body with the problems as
it shall appear next June, not as it is
While this Is the course Mr. Han na
will pursue, so far as his own state
is concerned, he is not to manage a
campaign in favor of uninstructed
delegates from other states.
Meanwhile there is considerable
anxiety as to Senator Hanna's health.
He has been ill most of the time since

he was again attacked by his old

from this new assault when his ill
ness took a turn for the worse. In ad
tlon to the grip, he is suffering with
an ulcerated tooth.

J. W. Blythe of Iowa, prominent in

to have pledged loyalty to Roosevelt,

position to him within the republican
party of Iowa.
Blythe will be one of Iowa's dele

also will be delegates-at-large.

Both cars were traveling in. a dense
fog. The accident occurred while the
front car was stationary, owing to a
quarrel between the conductor and a
passenger over a fare. Th second
car was coming at high speed thru the
fog, the motorman, Christopher Juer
gin, ringing his gong. When less than
a hundred feet away the front car
loomed up thru the fog.
Juergin stuck to his post, but it was
useless to try to avoid a crash, and tl"/

The dozen or more passengers on
the rear platform of the front car
were jammed together under the rear
car. Th attacking car could not
withstand the force of the impact and
for half its distance it was crushed
and the passengers inside were thrown
about on the floor and under wrecked
seats, while showers ot broken glass
fell upon them. Juergin was cut and
crushed and his back was broken.
Those of the passengers who had
not been too badly hurt to struggle
began a fight for escape. Children
and women were trampled on and the
weaker ones were beaten against the
wreckage by their stronger fellows.

Special to The Journal.
Chicago, Jan 27.The contract of
the Great Northern railroad for the
use of its Sioux City terminals, which
are owned by an independent corpora

For some time it has been supposed
that the terminals would be purchased

Pitifully Mangled Bodies of Har
wick Miners Are Brought
to the Surface.
Work of Identification Is Difficult
and May Prove Impos-
Clothing Is Torn from the Bodies
and Features Are Unrecog-
Pittsburg, Jan 27.The Harwick
mine is giving up its dead. The burned
and mangled bodies of .the men who
went to work on Monday eiorningare
being brought up to the surface and
taken to the temporary morgue, where
they are being prepared for burial.
As fast as they are taken from the
cage they are placed on bobsleds,
which stand in line, waiting for their
gruesome loads. Th sleds are manned
by two or three attendants and slow
ly the sad burdens are hauled up the
snowy road to the schoolhouse on the
i hill. Into this they are carried and
laid on the floor. Already there Is "a
heap of them there, a literal heap,
for the coroner's assistants realize
that soon there will be little room
even in this large building for this
dead, and so are having them laid
closely together and even piled one
on the other.
Every body so far brought up is
bruised and cut and crushed into
shapelessness, and not one so far has
the arms raised and the hands spread
out over the face, showing that the
doomed men foresaw their fate and
tried with their last conscious efforts
to ward it off. The fact that the legs
and arms are broken and disjointed
indicates that the force of the ex
plosion must have been terrific. I
is presumed that it caught the men
and hurled them like straws before
a gale, battering them against the
jagged walls of the mine and crush
ing them one upon the other. Scarce
ly one of the bodies has any cloth
ing on it, and all are more or less
burned, some to a crisp.
There will be great difficulty in
identifying them on this account, and
about the only way it can be done is
by the weigh checks found on most
of them. These are small circular
brass checks bearing a number, which
each man draws upon going into the
mine. A man known as the check
man hands these out and keeps a rec
ord of the number given each miner.
The coroner's deputies are hurriedly
hunting for the check man now and
as soon as he is found and can get
his list the work of identification will
Full identification of all the dead
may prove impossible, as some of the

Prince Ching says the suggestion
that he should invite mediation came
from M. Lessar, the Russian minister
at Peking. Such a course appeals
strongly to the Chinese. They employ
intermediaries in every transaction of
life. Thus Russia proposes to gain
an advantage with the Chinese by ex
pressing a desire for mediation which
Japan cannot accept, and which she
