VICEROY CURZON
RESIGNS OFFICE
EARL OF MINTO APPOINTED
HIS SUCCESSOR - >
TROUBLE WITH KITCHENER
Plssatlsfaotlon Comes to Head Upon
Government's Refusal to Maka
MaJ. Gen. Barrow Military
Supply Member
By Associated Press. .
LONDON, Auk. 20.— The resignation
©f Lord Ciirson of Kedleston as viceroy
of India and the appointment of the
earl of Mlnto as his successor was an*
pounced at the Indian office today. Ac
cording to the 'correspondence which Is
issued in the form of a white book it
appears that Lord Curzon's resignation
iwaa cabled to that office on August 13.
The correspondence shows a decidedly
bitter feeling between Lord Curaon, the
Indian office and Lord Kitchener, com
mander in chief of the forces in India,
over the new plan of army administra
tion in India. Lord Curzon's dissatis
faction came to a head with the refusal
of the cabinet to appoint MaJ. Gen. Sir
Edmund ' Barrow on Lord Curzon's
recommendation, military supply mem
ber of the council. Replying on August
2 to the refusal of Mr. Broderick, sec
retary of staff of India, to make this
appointment, Lord Curzon requests
that the government reconsider its de
cision, "in order to enable me to accept
the responsibility which I infer his
xnajasty's government still desires me
'to assume."
v Mr. Broderick again refused to com
ply with the request for the appoint
ment of MaJ. Gen. Barrow, and Lord
Curzon replied as follows:
"It is apparent that his majesty's
government denies me that confidence
which alone can enable me to serve it,
and attaches a fundamentally different
interpretation from myself to the modi
fications,'upon the acceptance of which
alone I consented to remain in office.
The situation,' therefore, remains where
It was when I resigned in June, j If the
government f ls^unable 5 to accept my
views jI • request the j premier to place
my,, resignation in the hands of hl»
majesty."
■ .... Refuses to Reconsider
:.-,."■ To 'this .Mr. ; Brodrlck replied that
there "was a request from Mr. Balfour
that Lord." Curzon - reconsider . his de
termination. : In a final dispatch, how-
e ver, ; dated August 12, Lord Curzon
Bays: '-. •• :•'„.•■,"'
; 7"The main question Is not the choice
of an individual, but one of the princi
ples underlying a future change in our
administration. I am driven to the con
clusion that the policy of his majesty's
government Is based on principles that
I. could not conscientiously carry into
execution. In the interest of the new
organization it is desirable that I should
be relieved of my duties with as little
delay as possible."
■r.^To this Mr. Balfour himself replied
that he had "with the most profound
regret submitted Lord Curzon's resig
nation to the king."
/Supplementary dispatches, after the
receipt of the resignation, show, firstly,
that Lord Curzon and Lord Kitchener
were unable to agree over the details
of "the reorganization; and, secondly,
that Lord Curzon at the time he left
England expressed his entire disagree
ment with the plan.
;'y.''But,V,he says,\"l loyally commenced
'the undertaking and resigned only when
I. realized that conflicts were certain to
arise between the commander in chief
i and the rest of the government of
India." ... ■
His concluding sentence reads:
By"! reflect with sorrow how little Justi
fication , there has been for the claim
that you have rendered me your con
stant support."

PLATFORM FALLS,
HUNDREDS HURT
ACCIDENT IN SYNAGOGUE IN
- PITTSBURG
NONE IS FATALLY INJURED
Staging Collapses and Great Throng
of People Are' Precipitated Into
a Cellar Fifteen Feet
Below
By Associated Press.
FITTSBURG, Aug. 20.— More than
five hundred men, women and children
were j precipitated fifteen feet Into a
cellar by the collapse of a platform ' to
day during the exercises Incident to the
laying of the corner stone of the Beth
David Russian'^ : Hebrew' orthodox
church on Miller street, near Washing
ton. Nearly all of them were cut and
bruised, but it is believed no one was
fatally hurt. Three rabbis were among
those who went down, and although In
jured they continued the ceremony
after the panic had subsided.
Among the more seriously Injured are
Rabbis Ashinsky, S. Graff man, A.
Bloom, and Abraham Nathanson, pas
tor of the congregation, and Policeman
Adam Lef teweskl. ...
The platform, which was fifty feet
square, had been constructed over the
foundation walls for the accommoda
tion of the rabbis, officers of the church
and invited guests. Just prior to the
corner stone ceremony a brass band,
leading 800 Zionists, arrived. When the
Zionists were Invited to pass over the
platform in order to sign their names
to the roll to be placed' In the stone a
mad rush was made by the thousands
of persons gathered to secure the same
privilege. | The policemen were over
whelmed. In a moment the platform
was packed and the frail structure col
lapsed.
The panic that followed attracted
thousands of persons to the spot and
the police had great difficulty 'in ex
tricating the screaming and groaning
victims from the wreckage.
When the cellar had been cleared it
was found that scores were hurt, their
injuries consisting of bruises and cuts
about the head and body. Some of the
Injuries were due to the panic that fol
lowed the rash, many being trampled
on In the wild rush to escape.
Rabbi Ashinsky was trampled upon
and suffered Bevere Injuries but con
tinued the services after some order
had been restored. The fact that there
were no fatalities is a marvel, as when
the platform broke It closed up like a
knife, throwing the people Into a strug
gling mass in the cellar.
The policemen had an exciting time
in handling the great crowd. A rumor
gained credence that several children
were burled In the ruins, and frenzied
fathers and mothers who could not
locate their ohlldren were restrained
with difficulty.

cell at the county, hospital. ; ; , .-•■'','
She went to Keeper, Norton early in
the • afternoon and asked to be allowed
to see her husband, but was refused
permission by order of Deputy Sheriff
Hubbard.
After pleading in vain with the keeper
the young woman turned away as if to
leave the hospital,' but stopped by the
railing of the elevated walk leading
from the Insane ward, twenty-five 'feet
from the door. Here she stood for a
few moment In plain view from the
window of her husband's cell on the
north side of the building.
When Mr. Norton saw her wave a
handkerchief as if signaling her hus
band, he stepped out of the building to
warn her not to attempt to communi
cate with him.
Before he could reach her Bide the
woman placed her hands on the walk
railing and leaped lightly over it to the
ground fifteen feet below. The shock
was so severe that it stunned her for a
moment and then, much to the surprise
of the keeper, who thought the woman
had at least broken a leg, Mrs. White
leaped to her feet and ran to the win
dow of her husband's cell, where he
stood with outstretched arms waiting
for her.
There was a hurried whispered con
versation between husband and wife be
fore the deputy sheriff could lead the
woman away. She was taken Into the
hospital office,' where she was examined
by a physician, who announced that
she had been severely bruised by her
fall, although no bones were broken.
White was arrested a few days on a
warrant charging him with uttering
worthless checks, but before he was
arraigned on this charge he was taken
from the city Jail on a warrant charg
ing him with Insanity, sworn out by his
father several months before.
It Is said that White was working In
the office of his father up to the time
the warrant for Insanity was Issued,
when he suddenly disappeared for sev
eral months.
When he returned to Los Angeles a
few weeks ago he was married and
said that he had been in Mexico In his
absence. He said that he met his wife,
who Is a Denver girl, in a little town in
Lower California and they were mar
ried by a native priest
When White was arrested a few days
ago his young wife stayed by his side
until the bars of the city jail were
closed behind him, and showed her de
votion to him again when , she risked
her life at the county hospital to see
her husband.
White is Buffering -from acute melan
cholia and never smiles except when his
wife Is present. .

this morning on hla way to Chicago,

"The giving of rebates by the rail

to be that all the roads do it. I do not
care to say anything about what
amount of money the Santa Fe or any
other roads has given In thU way."
President Rlpley'B assertion Is In line
with that of former Vice President
Paul Morton, to whom President Roose
