Surely thc mellenniuru ?8 uear at
hand. Vox thc lirst time in iifty year?
thc Democratic party last week elect
ed their candidates for Mayor in sev
eral cities in thc State of Maine.
If Conipti'ollcr (iencral Jones en
forces the law penalizing corporations
failing or refusing to make returns and
pay thc license tax, there is lots of
trouble ahead for thc small corpora
tions in South Carolina.
There are just now seven men
under sentence of death in this State,
with the strong probability that four
of these will bo hanged within thc
next few months. Four out of thc
seven aro white men, aDd two of those
arc men of means aud influence.
California senators accused of ac
cepting bribes have been expelled
from thc legislature of that State.
For some occult reason or other, thc
way of the transgressor is unusually
hard this season. Maybe thc public
conscience is rousing from it.s apathy.
It begins to look that way.

St. Petersburg, March 20.-While

without honor. Ag tho victor on land
and sea, Japan can afford to remember,
as Bismarck ?lid at the conclusion of tho
Austro-Prussian war, that two coun
tries which must live through tho long
future as neighbors may need each
other's friendship, Japan may consider
tho time propitious, on account of tho
situation in European Russia, to try
and crush us. Suppose, for the sake
of argument, she succeeded in finally
forcing a humiliating peace, it could
not bo moro than an armed truce. Rus

With tho urmy nnd navy reorganized,

Brockton, Mass., March 20.-Thia
city ia in mom muir tonight tor ut least
three?score people whose lives wore
blotted out early today by the explo
sion ot ii boiler "in n large shoe manu
facturing establishment in the ("am
pollo district, conducted by tho ll. li.
The explosion waa immediately fol
lowed by a Hash ot' Hame, which con
surued the factory, a loriK. four-story
structure, na it it were a house of carda,
and incinerated an unknown number
of ni'-n and women who were unable
to extricate themselves trom a mans of
tangled wreckage formed by the terri
lle upheaval in the boiler room. More
than half a hundred of the employes
in the building were maimed, burned
or bruised by the time they reached
safe ground. ?Some had jumped from
the roof, some from windows and oth
ers had been injured in the Lind rush
to eacape from the doomed factory,
which from all parts emitted thc in
tense, awful heat of an inferno, driv
ing back the band of heroic rescuers
who in a few brief momenta had per
formed gallant service.
It may never be known just how
many persons perished in the wreck
age. No one knows exactly how many
persons were in the factory. The
number has been estimated at -100, but
Treasurer Charles o. Emerson Baid to
night he doubted whether there were
so many at work. Two hundred and
fifty survivors have been accounted I
tor and at midnight tonight the re
mains of 50 bodies had been recovered |
.vrom the ruina, the search being con- |
tiuued all night. Fragments of hu
man frames which possibly might be
long to bodies other than those enu
merated have also been found. Few
of tl e remains have been identified.
The bead in nearly every case is mia -
mg and except in rare iustaucea it
was impossible even to distinguish the
Chief of Police Boydon at a late hour
to-night, expressed the opinion that
some of the employees had not reached
the factory at the time of the explo
sion and that undoubtedly a number
of those living in nearby places were
injured and hat; gone home withont
reporting their injuries. Ho thought
that many of those not accounted tor,
upwards of 1(H) in number, were among
An inspection of the wrecked boiler
by tho ?State boiler ?inspector Bhowed
that there was a auflloient supply of
water in it. The cause of tho explo
sion is at present a mystery. The dis
aster will be further investigated b3r
the State authorities.
The explosion occurred shortly after
the operatives had settled down to
Wuik tor tho ?lay, and without warn
) ing. Suddenly tho air vibrated with
I the roar of an explosion. At tho same
i moment the larger wooden frame of
Hie factory, a four-story structure,
quivered and then the rear portion of
it collapsed., In a fraction of a second
this section of the great building had
been transformed into a mass of iron
and wood wreckage, in the midst of
which human beings were pinioned.
In another moment tire had broken
out iu the debris and denth by fire and
suffocation became the fate of scores
of tho operatives.
When the boiler exploded it passed
upward almoBt perpendicularly, tear
iug a passage as it went, killing many
on the way. After rising high in the
?3 air, it descended half the distance and
3 then swerving northerly, cut its way
f like some huge projectile through a
r dwelling house 50 feet away and pier
ced another dwelling further along,
* I demolishing the latter structure. Here
?J I its course waa stopped.
