TOULON, France, Nov. 25.— The
torpedo school ship Algeciras, sta
tioned In this harbor, was totally de
stroyed by fire at a late hour this
There were 500 men on board when
the fire broke out, but it Is believed
thnt most of them were saved.
The Algeciras was a ship of the line
and for a number of years she had
been doing duty as a harbor vessel
and employed an a torpedo training
ship. She was of 6047 tons displace
ment and was built in 1855.
The burning of the school ship cre
ated the greatest alarm throughout the
city. News of the fire was first con
veyed at about 11 o'clock by the fir-
Ing of a cannon in the harbor.
The people hurriedly left the cafes
and theaters and rushed to the docks,
whence they could see the Algeciras
a mass of flames in the harbor. The
burning vessel stood out brilliantly in
the encircling: darkness and the glare
of the flames lit up the other shipping
and the coast and wharves.
Anxiety Over Men
There was terrible anxiety concern
ing the fate of the 500 men on board
until the authorities announced that
everybody had been taken off in boats
and saved, with the exception of three.
Those men did not answer the roll
call and It Is presumed they were
burned to death.
The entire garrison here was called
out to render assistance and the crews
of the warships of this division hur
riedly launched their boats to go to
the rescue of their comrades who were
on board the Algectras for purposes oT
instruction. Tup boats and fire boats,
as well an several steamers lying in
port, slipped their anchors and like
wise went out to help.
As soon as the men had been taken
oft the flaming vessel the efforts of the
authorities were directed to safeguard
ing the other ships anchored in the
vicinity of the Algeciras, including
the new battleship Patrle and the tor
pedo gunboat La Hire. These two
warships were towed to places of
The authorities came rapidly to the
conclusion that the Algeciras was
doomed and she was left to burn her
The discipline maintained on board
the Algeciras was excellent. A ma
jority of the men were cool and col
The small boats of the Algeciras
were launched, filled with men and
rowed away while those who could
not leave In this manner awaited the
arrival of their rescuers. A few of the
men, however, were forced by the
flames to jump overboard and swim
away. Six torpedoes on board the
school ship exploded while the men
were leaving the vessel.
There was much fear during the
height of the fire that a torpedo maga
zine on shore would be ignited, but
this was prevented by deluging the
magazine with heavy streams of
water from powerful flre boats.
It is not known whether the fire
originated from an explosion of pow
der or broke out among the stores on

It is thought that the flre which

passengers on eastbound Chicago &
Alton passenger train No. 24 near Glas
gow, Mo., shortly after midnight.
He was arrested before he could leave
the train and was taken to Glasgow
and placed In jail.
The robbed train is known as the
"Early Bird." It left Kansas City at
9 o'clock Sunday night and was due
at Slater at 12:27 Monday morning. At
Slater the robber, wearing a mask over
his eyes, bonrded the rear car as the
train was pulling out.
After the train had Increased speed
the man, revolver In hand, entered the
car and began a systematic robbery
cf the passengers. Fifteen of them
were made to disgorge.
As the train passed through Glasgow,
at which point it doeß not stop, the
man was seen at work by the station
agent, who wired the chief dispatcher
of the fact.
Armstrong, the next station east of
Glasgow, was notified and officers were
at the station there to meet the train
when It pulled' in. No stop Is made

which runs on the Alton tracks, and

NEW YORK, Nov. 25.— 1t was stat
ed tonight at the manager's office of
the Metropolitan opera house that En
rico Caruso's voice, which was affect
ed, has improved to such an extent
that the tenor would positively appear
Wednesday evening, unless an unfor
seen illness appears. Caruso himself,
It was said, was disposed to fill his en
gagement and was unaware of any
reason why he should not.
Caruso is billed to sing "Rudolfo" in
"La Boheme" to Mme. Sembrich's
Since Caruso's conviction for annoy
ing" women In Central park there have
been persistent rumors that he would
not appear in public at present. It
had also been said that Adreas Dippel,
another tenor, had been rehearsing
"Rudolfo" in anticipation of being as
signed., to take Caruso's part. These
reports, as well as others to the effect
that the management feared an un
friendly demonstration against Caruso
should he appear that might seriously
mar the performance, have been re
peatedly denied by Director Conried.
It was admitted, however, that the
singer's voice had suffered severely
during his experience in court and that
this affection, unless corrected, might
interfere with the program planned.
Tonight's assurance that Caruso was
quite himself again, seemed to dispose
of this contingency. It was given out
at the opera house that only the usual
police arrangements would be made for

burglars, were arrested in a Hill street
lodging house by Detectives McNamara

after Cloud and Smith had been ar

About $300 worth of cheap Jewelry
was stolen from Über & Über's store.
Jusechke said that he went inside and
took the stuff and passed It out through
the window to his confederates.
Cloud and Smith, say the police, con

Saturday night. George Papageorge, a
Greek peanut vendor, was held up in

Captain Auble stated last night thai
the capture of the three men was in
