Doxey'a (at the Sign of the L,ark, New York) announced a volume of verse, "the like of which has never been ventured in this country."'. It Is called "The Hook of Jade," and its author's name is not made known. That it is a remarkable production is evident from these assertions by the pub lisher: "Ills verse is Oriental to a degree; it Is redolent with strange perfume:-. Occa sionally it is lurid and fiery; sometimes it is chill with the damp of death; it is always original. A tirst perusal will lead to a second, and it will then dawn on the reader that ever.

Ward will publish in March, through Houghton, Mifllin & Co., a story entitled "The Light of the World." In con ception it is very daring equaling, in its quite different way, some of the Ideas of Mr. II. G. Wells, while in its religious sen timent it is of high quality. The author seizes upon some recent scientilic discov eries concerning the nature of light, and. amplifying them for the purposes of his story, brings them to bear ujon the resur rection In an entirely novel way.

Crowell & Co. call atten tion to the fact that fiction Is not the only form of literature that finds the ready pur cnaser. To Illustrate th!s they refer to tho success of the works of Ualph Waldo Trine, whose "In Tune with the Infinite" has reached its thirty-seventh thousand, and whose other books are selling in the same proportion. It is only a few years since toe Messrs. Crowell published Mr. Trine's first book, "What All the World s a-Seek-lng," the instantaneous success of which proved a field for just such char and prac tical teaching as it contained. Following this came "In Tune with the Infinite and three booklets entitled "The Greatest Thing Kver Known." "Every Living Teacher" end "Character Building and Thought Power." tiil: fiction avi: ii i: vi. Americnu . Writers Are nt Present Taking; the Lend. Springfield Republican. One Interesting fact that appears in the recent monthly lists of the bet-stlling books is the extent to which the American novelist is regaining the market from which, for a time, he seemed In danger of fceing crowded by the Imported novel. In the February list given in the World's Work for March, of the thirty best-selling books, seventeen are of American author chip. Only one European book figures "L'Alglon." by Rostand, which rather cur iously finds a place in the list in two forms, the translation ranking thirteenth and the original French version seventeenth. The ether books are all English If the anony mous works are correctly credited to Eng land. It Is worthy of note also that two books of poetry find a place "Home Folks," by Riley, which is twenty-third, and "Herod." by Stephen Philips, which ranks twenty-ninth. While fiction, of Course, strongly predominates, eleven vol umes out of the thirty are not fiction: one of them. "Napoleon, the Last Phase," by Lord Roseberry, Just following the first half-dozen, where the prize winners are to be found It Is interesting to note the varied char acter cf these first half-dozen "best-sellers." Four of them. It Is to be said, are American, only two Erjllsh. which em phasizes the Increasing demand for Ameri can fiction. All of the favorites of a little while ago have dropped out "To Have and to -Holl," "Richard Carvel." "When J.niKnthood Was in Flower." "Janice Mer edith.' "L;vi,; Harum." and tho llk( Tlu market for these, it may be supposed, is measurably supplied. Tin mw ivigning fa vorite is "Eben iloMen." a book with no literary pmu n-ions. but. like "David Ha rum," appealing to great numbers of peo ple by Its homely quality and its exhibi tion cf human nature. Turn comes a book almost as different as possible, Mrs. Hum phry Ward's "Ele -tnor." an elaborate . os tentatiously literary book, exotic in sub ject, ornate in description, and devoted to culture" ami tine art. Even In pite of the American heroine, whose character H depicted with amusing lnaccuracv. it l doubtful whether "Eleanor" would have found a plar In the 11--1 but for "Robert Flsmere." Mr. Ward still his a trr:; huld (i tho serious-minded, who outnum ber th i''V.itt'i'i .f itliet!( tMll. Third comes Maurice Thompson's "Alice of Old Vine enr.es," wh! h riKal::. i. alinovf as dif ferent as possible from the other two, and Is a creditable specimen or the American historical romance, with the advantage of a r.ew anil interesting Mol! in placi of the overworked battlefields of the revolution. The fourth is aatu abruptly difft rent Marlon Crawfoids "In the Palace of tho King." Here we have the work of a cos mopolitan American, tieatiror a themo of hp-inlh history in a melodramatic stylo and writing hi novel, Indeed, with his eyu on the stage. It 1 doubtful whether "In the Palace of the Kirs' would have beer so popular but for the notoriety given by the it?e verslou, wüljli Illustrate th in 9 i:xcli'sivi:ly.) creasing interdependence of literature and the theater. We lind still another vastly different vari ety in the fifth book, Rooth Tarkington's "Monsieur Reaucaire," a neat and clever little comedy of English life In the eigh teenth century, by a young American col lege graduate. And most different of all Is the sixth, Maurice Hewlett's brilliant, arti ficial, hyperesthetlc historical romance of Richard I. "The Life and Death of Richard Yea and Nay." Now, from such a list as this one may infer anything or nothing. The only sound conclusion, perhaps, is that the individuals who read one of these books are not the same as those who read tho rest. One person might be eclectic enough to choose both "Eben Hplden" and "Ricn ard Yea and Nay," but the great average of Mr. IJacheller's readers would think they or their author had gone suddenly crazy If confronted with the bizarre history of Richard and Jeanne of the Fair Girdle. No special "tendency" apiars in the list, except the tendency to read whatever seems pleasing. Realism or romanticism, Amer ican history or European history, or con temporary life, a labored conceit of style er no style at all none of these things seems to affect the result. On the whole, thi choice might have been much worse, and !t Is to be said that all of these books, and. Indeed, the whole thirty, are eminently clean, wholesome, profitable books, without a touch of degeneracy or moral taint. The tone of current fiction has improved vastly in the last half dozen years, and the hys terical women of the "Keynotes" period, the coarse-minded women of the Saran (J rand period and the Women who Did have alike disappeared from the pages of the contemporary novel. STRUGGLE IS PROBABLE OPERATORS nriTEUMIVED NOT TO RECOGMZE THIS MINERS' l.MOX. Strike Predicted Iy OrffnnUer Dit cher, If Employe I era 1st In Refun iog tu Attentl u Joint Conference. SCRANTON, Pa., March 17.-President John Mitchell denied himself to all Inter viewers to-day. He said he had no state ment tamakc, but National Organizer Fred Dllcher said: "I am only giving this as my personal opinion, but If the union is not recognized before April 1 there will be a strike." The operators here say they are In no position to say anything on the situation. The general opinion among superintendents is that the presidents of the nine big coal roads will never consent to a recognition of the union. The United Miners must be met and vanquished some time, the superin tendents say, and the present Is an auspi cious time because of the large stocks of coal the companies have stored away In anticipation of such an emergency. Opinion is so divided among the miners themselves as to the wisdom of striking for recognition that no general statement will apply in depicting it. The meeting of the national and district officers of the Mine Workers' Union, sched uled to take place in this city to-morrow, has been changed to Wllkesbarre. At this meeting it will be decided what course Is to be pursued. SLEEPING CAR BURNED CAVCillT Fl KB W1IILK RLXMXG FROM T A 31 PA AT JACKSONVILLE. Uotli Filled -tvltli Tourist. "Who Lout All Their Clothe nnd Valuables No One Injured. PALATIvA. Fla., March 17. The Pullman sleeping cars Tabita and Elmer, on a Plant System train from Tampa to Jack sonville, were burneel early this morning at Buffalo Bluff, seven miles from this city. The sleepers were filled with sleeping tour ists and so quickly did the flames spread that there was practically no time for sav ing clothes or valuables. At the time of the discovery of the flames they h id gained such headway that it was impossible to extinguish them and the train was run to Buffalo Bluff, where the burning cars were shoved into a siding. Tho seventeen passengers, Including sev eral women in the burning cars, were hur ried Into the other sleepers and made as comfortable as possible. Several lost their clothing and personal effects. Blankets wer loaned to those who had lost their clothing and they remained wrapped In these until Jacksonville was reached, where riant System and Pullman officials provided for their wants. One man lost his trousers and several men were minus their coats. The women lost the majority of their wearing apparel. The realroad officials had the measures of the passengers taken for cloth ing, dresses, shoes, etc., and they were sup plied within a half hour of the time of the arrival of the train in Jacksonville. The passengers were then sent to hotels. The loss in money and jewelry is, ac cording to the statement of the passen gers, between $10.U" and 513.000. The total loss is estimated at JfiO.Cn). SENSATION RECALLED. Marriage of John T. Shaynp nnd Mr. Mrrtlm K. llnrnniond. CHICAGO, March 17. Announcement is made here of the marriage of John T. Shayne, the wealthy Chicago merchant, and Mrs. Martha K. Hammond, former wife of Harry II. Hammond. Mr. and Mrs. Shayne are now In New York city. Th?y v.-ere married on Thursday last, at Pittsburg, Pa., at the home of ex-St.ito Senator Robertson. The wedding recalls the sensational shooting of Shayne by Hammond, nearly two years ago. In the cafe of the Auditorium Annex. In this city, where Shayne was dining with Mrs. Hammond, who was then separated from her husband. Shayne, though supposed to be fatally wounded, finally re-covered. Hammond, who is a merchant tailor, was subsequently tried on the charge of at tempted murder, and uequitted after a sensational trial. The Japanese House of Peers has passed the taxation blils of tho government, but the hostility felt toward the Ito Cabinet fehows no abatement.

March . 17. During the progress of a tire, to-day at the corner of Duquesne way and P"ort street, one man lost his life and three others were badly hurt. The property loss will be fully ÜU0, well insured. Dead. WILLIAM MILLER, driver No. 3 hose company. Injured. GEORGE J. SNYDER, hoseman, same company. IIARKV GRIFFITH, ladder man, Truck C. H. E. SHECKLER, hoseman. Company SO. The injured, who are in the hospital, will recover. The fire broke out in the boiler room of the Hiram W. French Company's hair felt factory, just opposite the Exposition main building. Through some misunderstanding no alarm was turned In for some time and It was fully fifteen minutes after the fire was discovered before the engines reached the scene. From the felt factory the Harnes Jumped across the street, and in a very short time the Exposition building was burning fiercely. All the firemen could do here was to prevent the Harnes spreading. After hard work this was accomplished, and Machinery Hall, with its valuable con tents, was saved. The main building was a complete wreck. Two lumber yards ad joining the felt factory soon succumbed. Gallagher & Banker lost one million feet of lumber and Henry Henk 350,000 feet of valuable hard wood. Three small dwell ings near the lumber yards were destroyeel, but so far as known all the inmates es caped. William Miller and his fellow-firemen were victims of a live wire. The intense heat melted the network of wires running in every direction and one of them in fall ing struck a trolley wire, the other end crossing the brass nozzle of the hose held by Miller and Snyder. Both men fell as though they had been shot. Sheckler and Griffith, in going to the rescue, were also caught, and both were badly burned. When the prostrate men were reached Miller was dead and two of the others un conscious. The loss on the Exposition building will reach IHW.OUO, fully insured. President Tor rance says the structure will be rebuilt at once and be ready for the fall engage ments. Hut Tho Bodies Found. . ST. JOSEPH, Mo., March 17.-Search of the ruins- of the Noyes Norman factory fire resulted in the finding of but two bod ies' that have been Identified. They are Miss Nora Bates and Louise Blondeau. A portion of another body, believed to be that of a woman, was found, but there U no telling the identity of the victim, says, the coroner. It was learned that there was but one fire escape from the seventh Uoor of the building. There were at least twenty-five girls on this floor. One of tho girls, who says she was the last to leave this floor, says there were probably five or six other ?irls left behind. She thinks all perished. THE PRESIDENT. (CONCLUDED FROM FIRST PAGE.) studied , by the students of literature, the Jurist and the statesman as long as our form of government continues. General Harrison was, in my opinion, for these and many other reasons, one of the most clear headed, sound-minded, independent, vigor ous and growing men that America has yet produced." GEN. SHIELDS TALKS. General Shields said of General Har rison: "I regardeel General Harrison as one of the leading American statesmen. I think his administration was one of the best in our history. His whole course in reference to our foreign relations was dignified but positive, and always to the honor of the American flag. This was shown In the Behring sea complications with England, and the difficulties with Italy arising from the New Orleans riot, and in the incident at Valparaiso, t when our sailors were attacked by the police and a mob of Chilians and brutally mal treated. All these diplomatic difficulties were amicably settled, and the rights of the American peoples upheld. I think Gen eral Harrison was one of the best equipped statesmen we have ever had. Ills Industry and clearness of thought and power of analysis enabled him to go to the bottom of every question, and he was thoroughly familiar with the details of public matters arising In his administration. IBs power of concentration of mind enabled him to make hundreds of speeches in which he did not repeat himself, and no political opponent could mlstrue what he said to his disadvantage. His Christian charac ter was very marked. He was not afraid of responsibilities, and when he once de cided a thing was right he would do it and let consequences take care of them selves. His loss to the Nation is very great, and his councils in public affairs will be sadly missed." GOV. YATES, OF ILLINOIS. He Attended the Funeral nnd Talks of General Harrison. Governor Yates and wife, of Illinois, at tended the funeral of General Harrison yesterday, returning to Springfield last night. Governor Yates paid the following tribute to the dead: "Lawyer, orator, sol dier, statesman, senator and President sucn was the career of Benjamin Harrison. In each and every capacity his attain ments were remarkable and afford a high incentive and inducement to American manhood. As a public speaker he had no superior in his time. I have heard him many times and every time had the impression that I heard a master at work. His diction was simply elegant. IBs accu racy and facility of expression were mar velous. His polished sentences usually ended with exactly the solitary word which alone could properly finish thf phrase. That word never failed him. His numerous short speeches were signally simple and superlatively forcible. lie was a ready great President and has done as much as any man to maintain the dignity of the presidential office. Most men have om; standard for themselves, and an other for their erfficlals. lie held highly to the highest of oi'leial standards. A statesman he was popularly conceded to be while he was yet alive. This Is un- uual. "Tom Reed once said 'a statesman is a successful politician who is dead, meaning that a statesman is. after all. a politician, but If both successful and dead he is en titled to the title of statesman because he is beyond the reach of criticism, de traction or envy. It is significant that Ben jamin Harrison's statesmanslike qualities were recognized before death. He was a lawyer of tho first magnitude. I remem ber hearing him argue n case lefore the United States Supreme Court a court th-3 majority ol whose members, if I am not mistaken, he had himself appointed, it was a thing that could not have happened in any country on earth other than ours. Yet he took no advantage and showed Loth his greatness and his legal thorough iess by working just as hard to captivi tate this court of his own creation as if he were trying the case before any other tribunal. "The people of Illinois have had an abid ing faith !n the patriotism and ability of Benjamin Harrison, ami the fragrance of his memory will long endure in th Prairie State." 31LRAT IIALSTEAD A SCHOOLMATE. He Talks of tho Early Day of Benja min Harrison. Murat Halstcad, of Cincinnati, an old school friend of General Harrison, was here, yesterday, to attend the funeral. Yesterday evening, at the Denison Hotel. Mr. Halstead related some interesting rem iniscences of the days when he and Gen eral Harrison were schoolmates at Col lege Hill, near Cincinnati. "Our seats were arranged." he said, "according to the way our names were spelled, and there fore we sat near each other. He was a slender boy, with a pale face, but was studious as to his habits. He never talked about his grandfather, William Henry Har rison, but one day, when some fellow said some insulting things about 'Old Tippe canoe, Benjamin resented the imputa tion. He was exceedingly sensitive of the fact that he was a poor boy, but was not ashamed of it. He was spurred Into the knowledge that he had to be a hard student all his life. The charac teristic that most distinguished him was that from the day he came to school to the close of his life, he was a hard stu dent. The work he did when he was Pres ident was monumental in its quality and quantity. It would be hard to ovcrestl mate it. "The boys In our class got the notion that 'lien' Harrison would some day be President. One thing that inspired the idea was a sort of feeling that the Har risons had not had a fair show, one hav ing been e-lected President, and died a month after taking office. Nothing indi cated that Benjamin Harrison ever thought of this, but it looked as if he had an am bition to restore the fortunes of the Har rison family. They had had honor and glory, but had not accumulated great wealth. 'Ben Harrison knew that he had his own future to make, and he there fore studied with great intensity and made rapid progress. Harrison has been charged with being a wintry, chilly, forbidding sort of person. Those who knew him best and longest never thought of him in this way. He was as warm-hearted as any body. Instead of being a wintry sort of man he was like a wholesome summer." Wisconsin Party Govs Home. Ex-Governor Peck, Lieutenant Governor Stone and State Senator Roehr, of Wiscon sin, represented their home State at Gen eral Harrison's funeral. They were ap pointed as a committee by the Governor of Wisconsin to perform that duty. Sitting in their sleeper at the Union Station last night before returning home, they were dis cussing the sad event. Ex-Governor Peck, whose genial face at once identified him with the humorous incidents in "Peck's Bad Boy," whicli originated in his min i, said: "I am a Democrat in every sense of the word, but I was always an admirer of General Harrison, although opposed to him In politics. He was a man of great ability and was certainly a great statesman. He was the most capable man the party had, and, In my mind, had the strongest non partisan prestige of any Republican since Abraham Lincoln." During th? conversation Lieutenant Gov ernor Stone said: "Harrison was certainly a geat man, but I do not believe he was fully appreciated." "I don't know about that," replied Sena tor Roehr: "he may have had opponents in politics, but they recognized his superi ority as i statesman. Even some of the men in th? party may have borne him 'ill will, but if they did it was because they could not influence him. You know poli ticians sometimes want men they can 'use but Harrison was a man of his own mind." BETRAYED BY A FRIEND CIIAnLES. A. JOHNSON, OF- NILES, MICH., ARRESTED AT COLOURS. Cashier of the First Nntionnl Bank v Who In Chanted with Wrecking that Institution. COLUMBUS, O., March 17. Charles A. Johnson, cashier of the First National Bank, of Nile, Mich., was arrested here to-day on a charge of wrecking that insti tution. He was placed in the emergency hospital at the police station because of his physical condition. He is badly broken in health, much emaciated and very ner vous. He expressed a willingness to re turn to Michigan at once Johnson is said to have come to Columbus immediately after leaving Niles, about two weeks ago, when the examination of the bank af fairs was begun. Shortly after his arrival here Johnson wrote to a friend in Niles rc eiucstlng that he send him a number of articles, and instructing him to address them in care of J. B. Elliott, the alias which he assumed on his arrival here. His friend gave the letter to Thomas I. Porter, a secret service officer, and Mr. Porter came to this city this mornin?. He enlisted the services of Detective Fos ter, and together they sent Johnson a decoy letter signed with his friend's name. The letter asked Johnson to meet his friend in West Goodale street, and receive the articles for which he had written. Johnson fell into the trap. He was greatly surprised when he thus fell into the hands of the oflk.ers, but quickly consented to return to Niles. He declined to talk about the affairs of the bank. On the prisoner's person wero found certificates of deposit lor $1.300 in the Hayden Clinton National bank, of this city. Papers found in a pock ttbook disclosed the lact that he had de posited J10U with two local brokers, and was playing the markets here. Johnson is held pending instructions from Judge Thompson, of the United Stales District Court at Cincinnati. PAN-AMERICAN CONFERENCE. Representatives of Republic to 3eet in the City of Mexico This Fall. WASHINGTON, March 17. Responses have now been received from practically all of the South and Central American repub lics accepting the invitation to participate In the conference of American republics, which is to be held In the City of Mexico next October. The preliminary work of the congress has been directed from Wash ington, as the United States government has taken great interest in the meeting, and has had the co-operation here of the representatives ef the southern countries. Tho personnel of the delegates from the United States Is beginning to attract at tention, and in South American circles there is an earnest desire that at least one of the delegates from this country shall sustain some official relation to the State Department. In the former con ferences held in Washington Mr. Blaine was a conspicuous figure, and the Southern republics are desirous that there be like prominence at the coming congress. Little attention has yet been fciven to consid eration of particular names, jet among thos; Informally mentioned are Assistant Secretary of State Hill, director Rockhlll, of the Bureau of American Republics, and John Bassett Moore, who was assistant secretary of state during Judse Day's ad ministration of the State Department. Mr. Moore's nam has come up in connection with the researches lie has made on the subject of arbitration, which promises to be one of the most interesting themes be fore the congress. Besides arbitration it Is expected the congress will deal witi commerciaraffairs of interest to this coun try and the other republics, developing means for thorough co-operation and mu tual expansion of trade. To some extent also the gathering will have a broad po litical aspect, indicating the fraternity wldch exists among the republics of the western hemisphere. EXPLOSION OS A SHIP SERIOIS ACCIDENT ON THE AMER ICAN LINER NEW YORK, Which Also Limped Into Port nt New York with Shaft Broken Near Propeller on Port Side, VALVE rORCED OFF A TANK PORTION OF THE STEAMSHIP FILLED W ITH FL'MES OF AM.MONIA. Fifteen PerMonn Overcome, Two So Seriously They Died-One Man Still in the Hospital. NEW YORK, March 17. The steamship New York reached dock at 10 o'clock to night after a passage in which an explo sion of an ammonia tank and a broken shaft caused loss of life and much damag to the vessel. As a result of the explosion fifteen men were overcome by the fumes of ammonia Thursday morning last and so seriously prostrated that two deaths fol lowed. Both victims were burled at sea. Several others were confined to the shfp's hospital for some time, and F. Colston, a cabin steward, was still in the hospital suffering from inflammation of the lungs when the ship docked. The dead are: JOHN KENT, a steward of the vessel, who dleel of pneumonia thirty-six hours after the accident, the disease being due to inflammation of the respiratory organs caused by the ammonia. CARL ENG K VI ST, an American citizen, a steerage passenger, whose address was unobtainable to-mght. On board with Kngkvist were his three children, all of whom arc young and who will go to the home of an aunt. According to a statement made by Super intendent James A. Wright, of the Ameri can line, after he had gone on board the vessel and talked with her officers the ex plosion, or escape of ammonia, as it was termed by Mr. Wright, occurred at half past 6 o'clock Thursday morning. The bon net of the condenser on the refrigerating apparatus was forced in some manner. The apparatus is in the after portion of the main deck on the starboard side. Mr. Wright said he had been unable to ascer tain the exact cause of the escape or am monia. He said he presumed the pressure was so great that a valve was forced, thus forming an incipient explosion. Near the refrigerating apparatus at the time were eleven stewards, steerage and cabin and fifteen steerage passengers. When the ammonia fumes burst out into the com partment which is on the same deck as the main dining saloon there was a mad rush to escape. Some were overcome by the fumes and dropped to the floor. Others were able to get out of the room, and ef forts were at once made to open up the compartment and let the ammonia escape. This took some little time, however, aneT those who had first escaped, after getting a breath of pure air, rushed back Into the place and assisted those who had been un able to get out into places of comparative safety. AH were more or less prostrated by the fumes, but only a few had to g-o to the ship's hospital. The stewards, Kent and Colston, were among1 them, as was Engkvist. Engkvisfs death, according to the statement of Superintendent Wright, was primarily due to heart disease, but It was said -that it was superinduced by the shock and by Inflammation of the lungs. Engkvist had been under treatment by the ship's physician prior to the accident for heart disease. There were fifteen treated by the physician as a result of the am monia fumes being Inhaled, but all except those named are now doing well. Superin tendent Wright said, and would be entirely recovered In a day or two. The breaking of the shaft occurred at 11:45 o'clock Friday morning. The vessel was sailing In a smooth sea at the time. The shaft broke near the propeller on the port side of the ship. It did not elrop out, and a boat was lowered and the propeller lashed fast with a wire hawser. Superin tendent Wright said he did not think It would be necessary to put the ship in dry dock to repair her, but was not sure as to that roint. Experience of L'Aquitnlne. NEW YORK, March 17. The French line steamship L'Aquitaine arrived this even ing after having had a trying experience with wind and sea. L'Aquitaine left Havre March 9. On the 12th while running in a fierce westerly gale and a high confused sea, she was boarded by a wave which cerrieel away an aft port life boat. The wave seemed to break on both sides of the vessel at the same time. A heavy mass of water fell en the smoking room from over the starboard rail. When the . water receded it wa found that twenty feet of the starboard rnil hael been smashed and carried off. At 6:30 p. m. on the next day, while the vessel was geinjr on her course at good speed, the crown of the high pressure piston broke. For eighteen hours the vessel kept under way under her star board engine and then the necessary re pairs wero completed. Collision Off Great Kkk Harbor. NEW YORK, March 17. The life saving crew at Great Egg Harbor, N. J., report that at noon to-day, they saw a collision between a two-masted schooner and a south-bound steamer. From what they subsequently saw they think the crew of the schooner were rescued by the steamer, which soon continued on her course. Movement of Steamers. NEW YORK, March 17.
