lieved morning prayer would work a won
derful change in the speake*.
"1 know a Japanese count," he said, t
"who, when congratulated upon his suc
cesas as a legislator, said his success was
~due entirely to his habit of baring his u
head and praying every morning.
"Since arriving in America," continued
Dr. Dearing, "'ve wondered whether
many problems would not be solved if a
Uncle Joe Cannon be brought around to a
give the same testimony. I

KENTUCKY JOINS VIRGINIA.
Wants Money From Uncle Sam for
Ceded Lands.
Frankfort, Ky.-Stirred by the sugges
tion from a Virginia state official, Ken
tueky probably will join its voice to that
of Virginia in denlanling reimbursement
from the federal government for the land
ceded for the crelation of the states of
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, \isconsin and a
part of Minnesota. It is claimed that
the condition of the grant lhas been vio
lated, that the pareehd land was put to
local purposes instead of being "for the
use and benefit of the other states of the
federation," as was o iginally intended.
Kentucky was a pact of the Old Do
minion at thi time, as was West Vir
ginia. The information reaching here is
that each of the states woubl be entitled
to about one-sixth of the amount claimed
by Virginia, or $2,000,000.

committee that a new dry dock was
needed at Norfolk at a cost of two mil
lion dollars; that the New York dry
dock would have to be enlarged at a cost
of one million; that the one at Pearl
Harbor, which is being built at a cost or
two millions, should be enlarged at a
cost of $425,000, and that the (lock at
Puget Sound should be widened at an
Sadditional cost of $325,000.

Montgomery, Ala.-While desperately

clothing of her 4-year-old daughter, Mrs.
F. P. Williams, wife of a carpenter, was

EXPLOSION IN MINE
HEARTRENDING SCENES AS MU
TILATED BODIES COME UP.
Force of the Explosion Was Ter
rific; Many Bodies Were
Unrecognizable.
I)rakesoro, Ky.-\\ith crepe hanging
onl (\(ry other door a long the two stlrag
gling streets of the little minining town of
lrowder and mot ley funeral eorteges
headed by all sorts of improvised hearses
movinlg toward tl:( c(metery, \Vednesday
was largely given over to effacemelnt of
death's work in the Elk Valley coal mine.
There was no attempt at holding divine
services over the mangled bodies.
Rescue parties were going up and down
in the mine all day, but no further finds
were made durinig the afternoon, the
last body being irought up at 12::10 p.m.
This brought the count of the dead to
thirty-four, with one man, Foreman Peter
Kelly, missing. The count made by mine
officials this afternoon definitely tixe
the total as above stated. Fifty-fi\( men
were in the area afflected by" the (ex).:(
sion and of the twenty who got out aline
scarcely one was lllunlhult.
As a result of the disaster, all of the
mines in the v'icinit v closed down to hlay,
the men offering their services in I-cuee
work.
The news of the explosion spread rap
idly and in a few moments the people of
the little mining town were crowding
around the shaft wildly. Women and
children, a!nlost crazed with grief, plead
ed with those in charge of the mine for
news of their loved ones, anti it was al
most impossible to keep the mouth of
the shaft -'S- Fortunately the fire,
which Fth ,ed by the explosion, died out
quickly, and the fans were at once set in
motion. A few nmoments after the disas
ter a relief party, headed by Andrew
Hogg, vice-president and general manager
of the Elk River Coal Company, ant
composed of the men who had escaped
from the mine, as well as numbers of
miners from other workings, entered the
wrecked shaft.
The rescue party found a scene of de
struction that left no doubt as to the
fate of the men. The first bodies recov
ered were in fairly good condition, the
men having been smothered to death and
not mangled by the explosion, but as
the party pushed on they found bodies
so mutilated that they were unrecogniza
blo. Cars and debris of all descriptions
had been scattered about the mine by
the terrible force of the explosion.
BIG PACKING HOUSE FAILS
Had Exclusive Right to Slaughter
Cattle in Mexico.
New York.-The Mexican National
Packing Company, a New Jersey corpora
tion, controlled by English investors, and
operating a string of slaughter houses
and packing houses in the Republic of
Mexico, under concessions from the Mexi
can government, failed Wednesday, with
liabilities, including stock, of appproxi
mately $37,0000,000.
The assets were not announced, but it
is estimated that they are in excess of
the liabilities. The company will con
tinue to operate its plant as usual. IHenry
De Kay was apl)lointedl receiver I)y Judge
Lanning in the United States Circuit
Court in New Jersey this afternoon.
The appointment of a receiver was not
brought about by any conditions in the
live stock market, but the tying up of
part of thIe company's funds in the
U'uited States Banking Company in Mex
ico ('ity, which suspended recently, was
responsiible for the trouble.
Among the concessilns held by the
company is an exclusive right to slaugih
ter cattle in Mexico City until 1926. Its
share of capital is $22,500,000, and it has
a bonded debt secured by, mnortgage of
about $12,500,000, and a floating debt in
the neighborhood of $2,000,000,
