BOYD PA1 BUILDING
IS If UD Bf FIRE
Serious Conflagration Averted
by Prompt Action of Fire
men; Loss Is $3000.
Fire which broke out In the Bell Sam
ple Shoo parlors, on the fourth floor of
the Boyd Park building, 162-1G4-16S
South Main street, at I2;30 o'clock last
night, threatened a serious conflagration.
Great volumes of Btnoke rolled against
the front windows on the fifth floor and
seemed to be the forerunner of a mass
of flame. .This situation continued for
twenty-five minutes, while the firemen
worked Inside tho building to subdue,
what little. Are. tliey discovered on thV
.The flro was made spectacular by the
fact that three thousand persons from the
various resorts, waiting to catch tho last
cars, crowded around the apparatus and
the automobiles that assembled from all
directions. Meantime, the late cars were
held up for five or six minutes at a time
before being allowed to proceed.
Intense Interest was displayed by the
crowds In tho modern methods of fighting j
fires. Several firemen ran up the stair
way at 162 to the fourth floor and found
themselves In a gas-laden atmosphere,
which made progress difficult. One of
them ran to a front window and called
for a light and an electric searchlight
attached to a dynamo machine was j
hoisted to him. This made It easy to
explore the fourth floor and th fire was
localized In tho vicinity of tho Bell Sam
ple Shoe parlors.
Meantime the ladder truck was placed
In operation and eight men with a hose
climbod to the fifth floor. Tho ladder
broke a window and the first fireman
kicked away tho remaining glass. Six
of the firemen climbed Into the building
with the hose and searched for fire, but
found only smoke.
The loss, as ostlmated by James C.
Paul, acting chief of tho flro department,
will not exceed $3000. Almost the entire
stock of the shoe concern was destroyed,
either by fire or water. The doors and
fixtures of tho shoo store wero de
molished by tho firemen In gaining en
trance. A large act of shelves against the door
In the factory of the Boyd. Park Jewelry
company on the third floor was knocked
down and several broakablc articles wero
demolished although the exact loss there
has not been estimated. Two llneB of
hose were U3ed In stopping the blaze at
the fourth floor, whllo a. third line was
run Into the fifth floor but was not used.

mits Spending $20,000 An
nually at Washington.
ARE HIS FRIENDS
Reed of Missouri Asks to Be
Left Out of the Category;
Hostilities Break Out
WASHINGTON, June 1.4. Henry T.
Oxnard, tho millionaire vice president
of the American Beofc Sugar company,
testified today before the senate lobby
committee that ho estimated he had
spent on an averago of $20,000 a year
in Washington for tho last twenti'-thrce
years in behalf of the beet sugar in
dustry. Ho declared that not a cent had been
6pent illogally. Each year, when he
was at his home in Washington, he
declared, ho camo to the capitol to
watch legislation and see his friends
among tho senators.
Senator Eecd demanded that tho
witness give the names of senators who
were his friends.
"Most all the senators," replied Mr.
Asks to Be Left Out.
"You need not include me in that
list."' declared Senator Beed.
-w"Well. I call Senator Overman one
of my friends, and Senator Cummins
"there," and T don ?t know so much
about Senator Nelson," said the wit
ness. Senator Overman promptly asked Mr..
Oznard if he had ever called on him
at his office or house, or if he had ever
attended any of Mr. Oxnard's enter
tainments. Mr. Oxnnard replied in tho nega
tive. Tho committee adjourned until Mon
day without finishing the examination.
Mr. Oxnard Informed the committee
that "Havemeyer or some other per
son connected with the sugar trust,"
informed him that "the sugar trust"
spent $750,000 in the Cuban reciprocity'
fight. When asked how it was spent,
Mr. Oxnard suggested some it may
have been spent "in subsidizing news
papers." John H. Carroll of St. Louis, attor
uew for the Hill system of railroads,
in tho lobby investigation, testified to
day that his own tariff activity was
tho filing of a brief for tho Groat
Northern and Burlington roads, deal
ing with creosote oil.
"I want to say that the so-called
Hill railroads havo no ono in Wash
inton trying to influonce legislation,"
said ho. Mr. Carroll added that James
J. Hill and possibly other officials of
tho Hill Tonds had boon in Washing
ton rocontly, but that they did not
come in connectidn with legislation.
Printing Clerk Called.
Anselm Wold, tho Benate printing
clerk, testified about the ordora for
printing "Sugar at a Glance," an anti-free
sugar argument prepared by
Truman G. Palmor, representing beet
interests and circulated free in the
mailG by hundreds of thousands of cop
ies under the franking, privilego of
Tho committee has developed testi
mony on whether Palmer was per
mitted to change tho document after
the senato had ordorod it printed.
Wold told of the procodure of print
ing a public document and, turning to
Senator Overman, referred to a pre
vious conversation about tho incident,
"I told youthen somebody had been
monkeying with orders here, and I still
think so." ,
Wold could not throw much light on
the situation, and other senate em
ployees may be called.
Nelson Gets Angry.

gan Beet Sugar company took tho
Btand, hostilities broko out again be

Six Bodies Recovered, Two
Wounded Men Rescued and
Five Victims Still Buried
Under Tons of Rock.
MOST OF VICTIMS
Disaster Occurs at Fifty-sixth
Street and Lexington Ave
nue, New York, Eighty
Feet Below Ground.
NEW TOE-K, June 14. Eleven lives
are believed to havo been lost in a
disastrous cavein eighty feet nnder-,
ground on the new subway construc
tion at Fifty-sixth street and Lexing
ton avenue tonight, when thirteen
men of a crew of thirty-two drillers
and laborers were entombed. At 10:30
o'clock six bodies had been recovered
and five were reported still buried un
der many tons of rock and earth. Two
injured men were rescued, but one
probably will die.
Five hundred laborers were quickly
assembled at the scene in an effort
to dig out the buried men. There- ap
peared to be no hopo that any of the
entombed workmen 'escaped death.
There is a conflict of opinion "as to
whether the cavoin was duo to a blast
or tho collapse of timboring. There
are two levels to the subwaj' construc
tion at this point, the upper ono for
local trains and tho lower for express.
It was the ceiling of the latter tunnel
which caved in.
Robert Eidgway, cngincor in charge
of the public sorvice, after an inves
tigation announced that the cavein was
not directly traceable to a blast. The
rock at this point is fault', ho said,
and tho shoring timbers gave way for
a distanco of twenty to twenty-five
Firemen discovered that a rock
weighing several tons had fallen on
somo of the buried meu. It could not
bo moved by tho moans at hand and
probably will havo to bo blasted be
foro tho bodies can bo removod.
Three priosts descended into tho tun
nol in excavation buckets to adminis
ter the last rites of the church, if
any of the men were rescued alive.
Most of the dead, whoso bodies have
been recovered, are foreigners.

Whitman to Be Asked to In
vestigate Alleged Cruelty at
By International News Service
NEW YORK, Juno 14. Mrs. Diana
Belais, president of tho . Now
York' Anti-Vivisection Bocioty,
announced that she would call
upon District Attorney Whitman and
ask for tho prosecution of Dr. Alexis
Carrol. Dr. Simon Flexner and other
heads of tho Rockefeller institute on a
charge of cruelty to animals. She will
urge the district attorney to order a
John Doe inquiry into the conduct of
tho surgeons wh'o practico vivisection
at tho institution.
Dr. Carrol is on his way to Europo
and Dr. Flexner declined to discuss the
announcement of Mrs. Bolais. Rocke
feller instituto officials, however, de
clared thoy had nothing to fear from
investigation, though they did not be
lieve Mr. Whitman would act upon the
To convince fihe district attorney
that tho law prohibiting cruelty to
animals is being violated at Rocke
feller instituto, Mrs. Belais will show
a picturo of a dog operated on by Dr.
Carrel. This picturo shows what Mrs.
Belais describes as tho "torturing in
strumcnts" in use. It was taken sur
I reptitiously by an employee of the in
stitute. "Tho prosecution f Dr. Swoot, in
Philadelphia, has pointed tho way to
us," said Mrs. Belais. "Wo havo" had
evidence frequently of inhumane
treatment of animals by surgeons at
Rockefeller instituto, Columbia univer
sity and at various hospitals, but wc
always havo been informed that thoy
were' protected by the law that permits
vivisection. Apparently it has never oc
curred to our attorneys thnt wc could
proceed, as tho Philadelphia women
did, under tho statute that prohibits
cruolty to animals.
"This prosecution in Philadelphia
wipes out the argument of presont day
vivisectors that atrocious cruelty is a
thing of tho past. Tt is conclusive proof
that thcro has not. boon one bit of mod.
erntion of cruolty.
"The magistrate who hold Dr. Swoot
for trial was apparently a pro-vivisec-tionist,
but he declared such cruelty
could not bo permitted.
"This oxposurc has shown tho neces
aitj' for the 'opet door' inspection of
laboratories by humanitarians. Tho in
spection should bo made by humanitar
ians giving their fabor free. If paid
inspectors are omployod it will givo tho
vivisectors tho opportunity to bnbo and
continue their devolish work under a
system of graft and protection."

About a single battle iu the coal strike j

The eonimittoo was astounded at the f
testimony of Lee Calvin,, an ex-mine
guard, ono of the men in the armored !
train when the strikers' camp was l
fired on. Cisco Estep, a miner, was
killed and Mrs. Annie Hall wounded. '
Calvin, called by the attorneys for the
miners, told a sensational siory of the
HoJIy Grove attack. After relating i
that he had been a "chief guard'-" on )
Cabin creok, and had loft, the district jf
because of tho shootings there, he said jf
that Sheriff Hill and Quiuu Morton, a l
mine operator, had met him in Charles- j!
ton and prevailed upon him to join a uj
party going up Paint creek in the ar- J
mored train. ' 1 1
Used Machine Gun. If
"There were ten or twelve men in j
tho car attached to tho train," said ;j
Calvin, "and when wo got just above I )
Paint Creek junction, all 0f them be- j j
gan getting their rifles. The' tried to
give me a rifle, but I told them I had j i
no shooting to do. Tho br,nkemah camo ;
through the train and turned down tho li
lights. He told us not to raise win- i
dows, but to shoot right through the i '
windows. I was leaning out of an open :
window and as we camo up to Holly S
Grove, I saw a stream of fire start r
out of tne baggage car .msc anead, ;
where the machine guns were mounted. i
The stream kept up as wo went -i
through Holly Grove.
"As we passed I saw three or four J
flashes of fire from the tents."
"Wero there any shots from the "
touts before tho shooting began from

for the miners. I .
"I didn't see any," said the wit- , , '

ono of the operators, wa3 on the train. (
When the train had passed the min- 1
ors' camp at Holly Grovo on its way 1
to Mucklow. he said, Mr. Morton came $
running back through the car. k
"What did he say?" asked Belcher. h ,
"He said, 'Back up tho train and 4
we will givo them another round.' C
"He wns talking to the sheriff, and t,
I'm not sure, but I think the sheriff ; i
told him something about thore being f I

At this statement, Seuator Martino ' 1
of New Jersey, almost leaped from his J I
chair. , I I
What sort of a man is this man .i

an ordinary American citizen that he . j
