SOLOMONVILLE, Ariz., December
18. Tho innor ndobo walls of tho coun
ty hospital building fell last night at
D o'clock, completely wrecking tho in
!do of tho structure nnd entailing a
loss of $500. Tho building stands
close to an irrigation ditch, and tho
vatcr scoping through gopher holes
caused tho walls to' soften and fall.
I'he outsido walls aro on a stono
foundation and did not fall.
It is apparent that a considorablo
loss of lifo was narrowly avcricd. Tho
institution hns six inmates and thoy

thrco or four feet and doubtless all of
tho mon would havo been killed had
hoy not been warned in time.
About midnight fire broke out in tho
wreckage from a buried stove, and it
required quick work to savo tho build
ing from burning.
Gardener Found Dead.
Daniel Kirk, a gardener, living alono

dead in his bed last Saturday morn

WASHINGTON, December IS. In a
bulletin issued today by tho interior
department on coal mino accidents it is
said that tho coal mines of the United
States aro killing thrco times as many
men per 3,000 employees as those of
most European countries. In tho last
seventeen years 22,810 men have given
up their lives in tho mines of this
country nnd as many violent deaths
occurred in tho mines during tho last
six years as during tho preceding eleven
years. Tho number of fatal accidents
each year i now double that of 1893.
Iu 1900, 0,801 men wcro killed or in
jured in mines, tho den numbering 2,001
and injured 4,800.
Summing up tho situation tho bulle
tin says: "It is indicated that this in
crcaso in tho loss of lifo has been duo
in part to tho lack of proper mino
regulations, in part to tho lack of re
liable information concerning explosives
used in mining, conditions under which
thoy can bo used safely in tho presence
of gas and dust encountered in tho
mines, in part to tho fact that in de
veloping conl mines, not only is the
number of minors increasing, but tho
mines are cither dcopor or furthor from
tho entrance, whoro good ventilation is
more difficult and dangerous accumula
tions of oxplosivo gas more frequent."
The bulletin shows that in all Euro
peal coal producing countries tho out
put of coal has increased greatly dur
ir. g tho last ton yenrs, but tho number
of deaths por 100',000 miners instead
of increasing as in this country, has
undergono a marked decrease. This do
crcaso hns been due, tho bulletin says,
to tho effect of mining legislation in
those countries for safe guarding and
protection of the lives of the workmen.
GEORGETOWN, Ky., December 18.
For tho first timo since it Bent n bullet
into tho body of William Gocbel in
January 1900, the Marlln rifle about
which so much has been said, waf
ilaccd in evidence today when Grant
L. Roberts took tho stand in Caleb
Powers' trial. It js now in custodj
of tho court as an exhibit. When the
gun was brought into court it was
found that it had been cnrofully screen
cd in a wooden box mado for tho pur
doso of its preservation. The box wa
wrapped in brown paper and tho whole
securely tied. The steel bullet, smoke
less powder cartridges remaining in thr
magazine after ono shot had been fired
wcro removed by Roberts boforo pack
ing it and these, too, wcro fijed as ar
exhibit. Roberts would not identify
tho gun without qualifications. He wa
"pretty suro" this was the missing
rifle which was bought from Clarence
Fugazzio of Frankfort, but would not
speak with absolute certainty.
Boforo closing for the day, Judge
Morris at tho request of tho defense
issued an order for Henry Youtsoy to
bo brought again from tho penitentiary
S. S. 8hcppard, deputy marshal at
Covington, who was in the stnte audit
or's oflico in 1900, testified this after
noon tlrtit on Friday or Saturday before
Gocbel was shot ho had seen Youtsey en
tor tho oflico with a gun apparently
much excited, and said that Youtsoy ox
claimed: "Get your guns, somothing is
going to happen. Caleb Powers is a
bravo man, but if they don't let me
hnvo my way I will soon settlo tho mat
ter. I havo a good position at stake."
Sheppard said: "I was at my desk
and whon Gocbel wns shot I dropped
my work and went to tho west door, of
tho executive building, when I saw
Youtsoy coining out from the enst door
with a pistol in his hand."
BRUSSELS, Dccombcr 18. Follow
ing a careful examination of tho com
ploto text of tho Congo anncxatior
treat', which had just been published
liberal mombors of tho chamber of dep
titics voted unanimously in caucus to
day to oppose tho treaty on tho ground
that conditions set down unduly limit
the sovereignty of Belgium nnd disro
gard Belgium's rights. As tho govern
nient had counted upon tho liberals'
support to pass the bill against the op
position of tho socialists, nnd some con
servatives, there is a prospect that the
treaty will bo withdrawn and that the
government will therefore resign. De
tailed study of the complete treaty pro
duces a very different impression from
that which is obtained by tho public
from tho rosy ofliciul forecast, and it is
now plnin that King Leopold retains
his powerful interests in the Crown do
main, which is the richest nnd best
oart of Congo. More especially through
the insistence that tho rights of vari
ous foreign capitals which hold import
ant concessions should bo maintained
and recognized by Belgium, public
opinion is increasingly convinced that
tho treaty docs not sufliclcntly recog
nize tho rights of Belgium .in tho
Congo. Tho action taken by the lib
eral? is interpreted1 to menn the doom
3f annexation and tho probable fall of
Van Wngcnen makes a specialty of
'inting. Satisfaction our motto.
