WASHINGTON, March 28.—Eight men were killed by
an explosion on the protected cruiser Charleston at Olon
gapo yesterday, according to a dispatch received today at
the navy department.
The vessel was at target practice when the accident oc
curred. A breech plug on a three-inch gun blew out, kill
ing the greater number of the crew.

The men were buried at Cavite.
The report of the accident was made to the department
by Commander in chief Hubbard of the Asiatic fleet.
An official investigation has been ordered to investigate
the circumstances of the accident.
Hubbard expressed the belief that the explosion was the
result of a premature discharge of the gun. He said that
it was possible that the firing pin in the breech lock be
came jammed and that after a shell was put in place the
breech lock was set hastily and the jammed pin exploded
the cartridge prematurely.

LETTER TO THE CITY
A copy of a letter sent by Presi

WASHINGTON, March 28.—A story that Roosevelt is
"putting his house in order" so he will not be hampered
if he should decide not to endorse the Taft administration
created much comment here today. The story is based on
the statement that Representative Nicholas Longworth,
the former president's son-in-law, has refused to serve
again on the congressional committee in response to a let
ter from Roosevelt stating that he hoped his family need
not be placed in a position which might make it embarass

deny the rumor.
The story, which is the sole topic of conversation in
political circles here has brought to front again the "back

Friends of a city market should be out in force at the meeting of

market question has been made a special order for that occasion,
when two propositions from private parties to build and conduct a

planned a market building for the southeast corner of Second and

years. The other is from Schwartz Bros., commission men. who agree
to invest $10,000 in a market build lng on the city's ground at Sinto

The mayor has recommended that a municipally owned market be
erected, at some point convenient to the business center, and this
