By the Associated Press.
Wahuixoton, Jan 20 —Dr. AinßWorlb,
who by a special bill in congress bas
been placed in charge of tba record and
pension division of the war department
with the rank of colonel, aud who ia en
truetsd with the entire admiuiatration
of pension mattera, as far as tbey relate
to the army recordß, waa examined yes
terday before a sub committee of the
house on the question of transferring
the whole pension system to the war de
partment. His evideuce waa racy.
Speaking of the suggested tranafer, he
said: "So far as I am personally con
cerned, I am opposed to it. It quad
ruples the labor and responsibility, but
whether you make the change or not,
one of the firßt thinga you ought
to do is to straighten out the
affaire of the pension office.
There ie an office, which of all others,
ought to be conducted aa nearly like a
private business concern aa possible. It
has most unbusinesslike methods and
there ia one very good reason for it. No
commissioner, whether the present one
or a new appointee of Preaident Cleve
land's, can bring order out of chaoß j
there, because he has no authority to
keep order and discipline refractory or
worthless employes. You can set this
down aa the rule with few exceptions,
that the more worthleaa a public em
ploye is, the greater amount of influ
ence he possesses. A good man ia uau
ally a man without influence; but a
drunkard, loafer or insubordinate
triiler is a man who haa so much influ
ence that the chief of his bureau cannot
get him out."
Congress Again Adjourns as a Mark of
Keapect for Hayes.
Washington, Jan. 20.—The senate
and house paid an additional mark of
respect to the memory of ex-President
Hayes by adjournment today, without
transacting any miscellaneous business.
In tbe house the general deficiency
appropriation bill was reported and
placed on the calendar.
Warner (Dem.) ofNew York, from the
committee on manufactures, presented
a report on the sweating system, and it
was placed upon tbe calendar.
De Armond (Dem.) of Missouri, from
the committee on election of president,
etc., reported a bill to repeal the sec- |
tions of the revised statutes concerning ,
supervisors of election.

however, that the opponents of the
measure do not hope very strongly for
succbbb. A conservative view of the Bit
nation leads to the conclusion that the j
CJeorKe amendments will bo voted down, i
The house committee on manufactures t
today adopted the report of the sub
committee detailed to inquire into the
"sweating system" of labor. The re
port is a voluminous document, embrac
ing all the testimony taken by the com
mittee, and a careful analysis oi the
various suggestions looking to the cor
rection or amelioration of the evils. The
committee inclines favorably to the use
of tags on all articles of clothing by
which they can be traced to the place of
manufacture; prohibition of interstate
commerce in goods made under un
healthy conditions, and the definition
of such conditions. But as it is only
by further careful consideration of de
tails of any legislation proposed that
can be intelligently drafted to meet the
requirements, the committee, in view of i
the early expiration of congress, simply
submits the report, with the recom
mendation that such legislation be had
by congreßS as, with the leaßt interfer
ence with the buaineas of citiz?ns, and
the least exercise of federal jurisdiction,
will eventually prevent interstate com
merce in articles of clothing or personal
wear made under unhealthy conditions.
The bouae committee on banking and
currency today ordered a favorable re

ANNEXATION OF CANADA.
A Special Message Forthcoming Touch
ing tut, subject,
>'ew York, Jan. 20.—A Washington
special says: President Harrison will
eerd to congress within a few days a
special message which may have au im
portant bearing upon tbe possible an
nexation of Cnttada to the Uuited States.
The massage is ia response to a resolu
tion presented by Congressman Hitt, on
behalf of the "committee on foreign
affairs, July 19, 1891 The message will
also deal with another form of tbe ques
tion, which will prove embarrassing to
the eubsidy military railroad of Canada.
The president will declare that thia
government haa a right to require in
spection by its customs officers of goods
received from foreign territory at any
American port for transhipment. For
example, the greater bulk of silks aud
tens 6ent in English bottoms from the
Orient for importation into thia country
are delivered iv bond at Snn Francisco |
then sent by vessel to British Colombia
whence, under eeal, they aro carried
over the Canadian Pacific railroad;
tbence across the border to either New
York or aomn other United Statea port.
President Harrison will take the view
that such importations would hereafter
receive examination by Uniied States
j custom officials upon arriving at San
Franciaco, and duty upon them be im
mediately levied and collected. The
effect of thia would be to cru?b their
transportation across the continent on
American railways, insipid of the Cana
dian military line. These will be the
chief points of the much heralded retali

Serious Casualty at a Fire hi
A Large Storape Warehouse Burn
ing- Thia Homing.
Fir. met! Csught Under a Falling Wall
and Frightfully Injured—Three
uf Xhttm Fatally—Lima
By the Associated Pre* 1
New York, Jan. 21—Story <% Co.'s
five-story warehouse, Washington and
Main streets, is on fire at 2:30 this
morning. Three alarmß have been
turned in. Ths building is used by the
merchants of the vicinity for the stor
age of cotton and rice. One wall
of the burning building has fall
en in and buried 15 men in
the ruins. Other firemen have been set
at work digging them out. Fifteen men
are supposed to be deader badly burned.
It is impossible to give the names of the
killed as yet. Those known to havo
been seriously injured are Pipe
men Coyle, Roburtaon, Ronald aud
McCarren, all of truck No. 8.
When the men were removed from the
ruins they were instantly placed in am
bulances and hurried away to the hos
pital. They presented a horrible right
and if appearances count for anything
it is very doubtful if any of them will re
cover. A score of firemen are working
with all their might to rescue those still
under the debris.
At the time the wall fell a large num
ber of firemen were fighting the flames
on that side of the warehouse to pre
vent their spreading to an adj lining
soap factory. When the wall began to
crack some one ehouted to the working
firemen to run for thoir lives. The
warning came too late, for before
half of them reached a place of safety,
an awful mass of brick and timbers
cams crushing down on them. A call
was sent for more firemen to aid in dig
ir.g out the unfortunate men. Soon
they succeeded in rescuing four of truck
No. S's men and at thie hour are still
engaged in making every efl'ort to rescue
the buried men. It is believed 11 men
are still under the ruins, and in all
probability they will be dead before
they can be rescued. The loss is esti
mated at $300,000.
Later —The report that 15 firemen
ivere under the ruins proves to have
oeen exaggerated, but nine firemen had
i narrow eßcape from instant death.
They were all painfully injurad aud
hree are likely to dis. The injured
vcro all removed to St. Vincent's

procession today. The Socialists bad
much if not all to do with the proces

began to bawl Socialistic songs. The

Btopped in front of a large bakery and
attempted to take the place by storm.
A number of police were quickiy on the
scene and prevented the looting of the
shop. The police allowed two men to
enter the bakery and ask for broad
from tbe proprietors, but ti.ey
were met with a prompt and
decided rafusal. Finally the mob he
came so disorderly that a body of 200
police attempted to disperse them. They
resisted, and a desperate melee entujd.
Several gendarmes were quite badly in
jured. Che police with drawn Bwords
repeatedly charged the crowd aud in
flicted many sword cuts ou the rioters.
The procession was finally broken up,
