Kai.h hour to-day added to the toll of

was not In sight. liodlcs of sailors of

fouml on the shores of the lake; wreck
age from two other boats still missing
Was cai't up by the sea, and no tracu
lia<l been found *? f two vessels or their
crews. totallMK more than forty men.
Never In maritime history has Luko
Huron been th?* sreno of such aucces- ?
Mon of th? disaster.? Conservative es
timates of the loss of lives fix the to- j
tal at 1 f>0 at l?-n?t. The damage to
vnssels and cargoes will bo. several ru 11
Hi iib of dollars.
Lying In various morgues itlong th??
Canadian shores are bodies of sailors
from tho steamers James Carruthers,
Hegina; John A. McOean, Wexford, and
Charles S. Price. It is practically cer
tain those vessels went down with all ?
on board. There are also a number of
unidentified bodies. Perhaps these
were of sailors on the unidentified
fr"lghter. which lies bottom side tip
In Lake Huron, thirteen miles north
<?f here. Many still think she is the
Hegina; others still cling to the theory
t'nat she collided with the Itegina and
Hi- latter Bank.

lieved to be a total loss.
Kog and a heavy sea to-day pre
vented marine men from mnklng a
fourth attempt to learn the namo of
tlie overturned freighter which, toss
ing helplessly in a rough lake, has be
come r serious menace to navigation.
Greatest among to-day's tragedies
was the confirmation of the loss of the
steamer Jcvhn A. McGean, a 423-foot
freighter. Twenty-eight bodies of her
crew have been washed ashore. The 1
steamer Crawford, badly damaged In j
the Btorm on Lake Superior, passed

Paris, November 13.?Tlio threatened ?

ncxro will rocelve added Impetus when
Princess Nathalie, daughter of Duke
Constantino of Russia, begins her suit
for divorce against Prince Mlrko. of
Montenegro, second son of King Nlch

announced that she will not live with
I'rlnce Mlrko again, and is now con

she 1ms tho support of her family, as i
well as prominent members of the j
Husslan nobility.
Iflng Nicholas la doing all in hla

objoctlon, as announced, being that an
Crown I'rlnce Danoll has no children
I'rlnce Mlrko will one (lay occupy th?>
Montenegrin throne. However. tho
real reason for thw monarch's opposi
tion Is that the royal family Is in ex- '
trernely bad standing, owing to the
falluro of tho King to gain anything '
by his defiant/stand during tho iialkan
War. and on account of the recent
exposure of stock exchange deals. In
which King Nicholas was heavily In
volved. A political overthrow Is
threatened, and the monarch does not j

DIFFICULTY CLEARED UP
Durenu TCxplnloa One Section of Income '
Tax I,n tt.
Washington, November 13.?Internal
revenue officials this afternoon cleared
up one of the 'difficulties In the way j
of a clear comprehension of the income .
tax law among foreign Investment
brokers and banks, in regard to tho
procedure necessary in the cane of an
alien who holds Investments In Ainer- I
lean securities.
In a circular letter to collectors tho ?
bureau polntB out that while coupons
or orders for registered lntereut pay
able In the t"nit?-d States representing
Interest on bonds owned by nonresi
dent aliens must be accompanied by a
certificate to this effect, the certificate
may be signed either by the owner or
in his behalf by a reputable bank or ,
collecting agency.
In the opinion of Treasury officials
this explanation may do much to
lighten the troubles of European In- ]
vectors and clear a situation which
foreign financiers are quoted as saying
would lend to a falling off In alien '
Investments In American stocks.

man antitrust act.
"The local phone company is doing

New York," said Norrls. "Its stock is
owned by another corporation, whose
stock in turn is owned bv still another

ow j.s the stock of several other com
panies. It is a perfect mass of cor- ]
poratlons." i

of Living.
[Special to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.]

ent-day high cost of living was traced |
to-day to a lack of tillers of the soil i

Inhabitants to the rural districts' one. |
Ninety per cent of the population in t

cent to-day. This decrease in farmers J
and tho consequent decrease In farm j

A broken rail is said to have been
the cause of the Accident. As tho
crowded excursion train rounded
a. curve, the threo cars at the rear,
literally packed with passengers, sud
denly left the track and, breaking away
from the others, dashed down the steep
embankment. The wrecked coaches
were practically demolished.
Occupants of tho two coaches, which
remained on the rails immediately bent
their efforts to rescuing the hundreds
caught In the t tngled wreckage. Word
of the disaster quickly reached Clay
ton, Ala., threo miles away, and re
lief trains bearing surgeons and nurses
were quickly dispatched from Ozark !
an I F.ufaula, where most of the dead
and injured later were taken.

Many of the victims were cared for
at Clayton, where the citizens turned !
their residences Into emergency hos- '
pi tain. Rvery physician within a
radius of many miles hurried to the 1
scene of the wreck.
Hocauso of the isolation of the place
where the wreck occurred ldentifica- 1
tion of the dead and wounded was slow, j
Not until to-night were tho names of
a majority of those killed known with !
certainty.
To-night many of the Injured were i
brought here from Clayton, those suf- ,
ferlrg moat being rushed to local hos- i
Pltals by a special train. A majority ;
of the Injured sustained painful
scratches and bruises from splintered !
woodwork and cuts from flying glass.
There were inany. however, who suf- j
feied broken bones and similar in
juries of a dangerous nature.
Railroad officials to-night issued a
statement here in which they ascribed 1
tHe. wreck to a broken rail.

in Bankruptcy.
PETITION FILED
IN FEDERAL COURT
Liabilities Estimated at $5,000,
000, With Assets, Mostly Bank
Loans, of From $2,500,000 to
$3,000,000 ? Morgan and
Vanderbilt Once Iden
tified With Concern.
New York, November 13.?The fail
ure of II. Ll. Hollins & Co., an old es
tablished banklnK und brokerage
house, with international1 connection.1*,
was announced simultaneously to-day
on the Slock Exchange and In the
United States District Court. An In
voluntary petition in bankruptcy
against the Arm had been filed in tho
court. Inabilities are estimated at
55,000,000, With asst-t;, mostly hank
loans, of from $'-'.500,000 to $3,000,000.
The firm was established over twenty
years ago, but recently underwent sev
eral changes in personnel. Harry 13.
Hollins, the perilor member, was a busi
ness associate of the lata J. J'. Morgan.
William K. Vanderbilt also was at
one time Identified with the firm In
outside enterprises, Mr. Ilolllns'a part
ners JncluVle Briton N. Buscli, the board
member, and Walter Kutzleb. for sev
eral years the manager in ihls country
i of the ltusso-Chineso Dank.
According to the firm's lawyers, the
failure was precipitated by the with
drawal of Home large deposits, which
seriously reduced Its working capital.
At one tinie Hollins A. Co. had exten
sive Interests In Mexico, and repre
sented in tills country Uie National
Bank of Mexico, and the International
Mortgage Bank, or Mexico City. These
connections were severed several years
ago. Tho firm also was interested in
some of tiie former subsidiaries of the
American Tobacco Company, including
the Havana Tobacco Company.
Hollins & Co. participated In the
preliminary negotiations of tho so
called six-power group of bankers
which several months ago contein
> plated the Issuance of a largo loan to
tho Chinese government.
Beginning of Dinicaltiea.
The difficulties of tho flrrn are be
, lleved to date back to tho panic of
I 190?, at which time it was burdened
J with a number of unprofitable proper
( ties. Including the Cincinnati, Hamilton
; and Dayton and Pere Marquetto Hall
roads and the Chicago Hallways Com
pany. Tho railroad properties] were
later taken over by J. P. Morgan & Co.
On the Stock Exchange It was under
stood that the firm had closed out its
few remaining contracts or commit
ments a few days ago. Some of tho
recent liquidation In certain high
class securities is believed to have been
for the Arm's account. Its principal
banks were the Hanover National and
the Bank of the Manhattan Company.
These Institutions are said to be fully
secured, as also aro some other banks
which are supposed to have made loans
to the insolvent firm. All told, tho
rtt m s bn nk loans are said to aggre
gate between $3,000,000 and $4.000.o00.
Harry B. Hollins is a director In
numerous financial and Industrial in
stitutions, Im-luding the Equitable
Trust Company and the International
Steam Pump Company, and is promi
nent in social circles.

President Decides to With

Had Been Attempted.

Washington, November 13.?United
support of tho great powers abroad for
i the American policy toward Mexico,
shown in a variety of quiet diplomatic
activities, gave President Wilson nnd
Secretary Bryan a conlldent feeling to
day that tho elimination of General Vlo
toriano Huerta as Provisional President
of Mexico soon would bo an accom
plished fact.
That tho financial blockado instituted
by the United States had effectlvely
tied tho purse-strings of Kuropo; that
diplomatic pressure was being exerted
Incessantly on all aides at Mexico City;
that close friends of Huerta wore ap
plying their Influence, and persistent
reports saying Huerta had gone Into
mysterious seclusion, raised the hopes
I of the Washington government that
! at last It was making definite progress
toward solving tho Mexican problem.
An exchange of cablegrams with
Ambassador Page; an agreement by
Great Britain to leavo tho solution of
the MexVan problem in tho hands of
the United States, and an announce
ment that no moral or tinancial sup
| port would be granted by England to
the Huerta regime, set forth in Lon
don pross dispatcher, created a favor
ahlo impression throughout official
j Washington. It waB folt that Great
Britain, France, Germany and other
nations now stood together in acquies
cence of the plan of tho United States
for the elimination of Huerta.
Statement Withheld.
President Wilson had prepared early
in the day a statement of tho situation,
reciting what had been attempted in
the communications presonted by
I Charge O'Shaughnessy and John L<lnd,
j but within a few hours such favorable
J r.dvlcos were received as to cause the
President to withhold the document
from publication.
"There are elements In tho case." said
I'resiilont Wilson, "which 1 cannot at
present discuss, but which make it look
to me very much more favorable."
The President Epoko thus of tho sit
uation to a half hundred Washington
correspondents at their semlweekly
j conference. It was apparent that he
felt decidedly encouraged by recent ad
vices. The President Is not usually
quoted after those conferences, but to
day he permitted quotation to tho ex
tent of the single sentence. This he
did to allay any tension that might
have arisen in this country over the
situation described in tho dispatches
from Mexico City. Asked about the
word "favorable" he explained that ho
meant "favorable to a settlement."
Tho President gave no details to
show upon what hia optimism was
based, but he made It clear that the pri
mary condition of a settlement was the
] ousting of Huerta and all those who
i stood for tho kind of government he
| had been conducting. it was evident
I that the Presldont had received im
portant dispatches, nut he declined to
say whether they were from Mexico
City or Nogales, tho Constitutionalist
headquarters. Later, however. It wan
learned from other high olllclala that
tho plan for Huerta's elimination was
being acquiesced in by foreign gov
ernments, especially some of those
which had previously recognized him,
and upon whom he had come to roly
i for aid.
HI* Resignation 1'rned.
i One of tho important factors in the
j situation was tho report through au
; tlioritative channels that members of
! the Huerta official family were divided,
I some of them urging his resignation to
avoid complications.
Tho situation has progressed to tho
point. In tho view of many offiplale,
where even a definite rejection of tho
| American demands by Huerta would
; not alter his future materially. Con
| thlenco prevails that ho Is drifting into
j certain bankruptcy and cannot resist
| much longer the pressuro exerted
against 111 in.
Another influence that is supposed
to contribute to Huerta'a overthrow
! Is tho extension of moral support to
| tho Constitutionalists. If pressed to
| the extremity, the American govorn
[ rnent will lift tho embargo on arms
i to aid the rebels into composing the
| situation. but there is still a hopeful
ness among high officials that such a
-step will not be necessary. /
The United States has offered no
mediation to the Constitutionalist#,
I but simply has endeavored to learn
what protection would bo promised to
foreigners and their property, and
what would be the program of action
i of the Constitutionalists if thay were
successful by arms.
Tho Washington government tealUeg
that even should Huerta announce his
Intention to retire, a competent ma
chinery of government would have to
he substituted and that negotintt'onn
for un armistice arid peace negot|a->
tlons looking toward a fair and free
election would have to be carefully
worked out. Tho United States pur
poses to help In any way it can, afford
ing means of communication between
Nogalee u nd Mexico City it desired* a&d
