PARIS IN DARKNESS
LAXTERXS IX STREET.
CAXDLES IX HOUSES.
Thousand* Saved and Fed—
Many Looters Shot — Seine
Sloicly Falling.
Ttsif. Jan. 30.— "While the most immi
nent peril is over, the fall of ••• Seine
since yesterday morning has measured
only fifteen and one-half inches. At this
rate, it would- require .1 fortnight for
the river to reach its normal level. Fort
v.natcly, tiding? from the flooded sections
y.bove Paris sive hope of a more rapid
subsidence after to-morrow.
In the mean time the situation in
Paris and in many places throughout the
country fhovs little improvement. in
deed, the ravages of the flood within the
city seenif^d actually to increase to-day.
The water was higher in pome of the
streets, while the situation at the inun
dated towns between Paris and St." Ger
mam was cistinctlv graver. A stream of
water twelve feet deep was rushing
through Gennevilliers and Colombes,
n-.&kin* the •work of rescue and succor
more difficult even than yesterday. Sev
eral of th* houses collapsed, "and many
persons were taken from the roofs of
their homes, ■where they had been cling
ing for days.
Hundreds are reported without food or
•helter. and all day an army of troops
a.nd civilians worked ceaselessly in the
flooded territory, bringing succor to the
distressed and distributing- provisions by
hoe.tr la the thousands of victims sur
rounded by water who refused to quit
their homes. "Within the city itself great
throngs of sightseers in the bright sun
'•hii» j besieged the cordons of troops
«-hich fring-ed the flooded districts or
rlimbed to points of vantage, from which
they could purvey the wide vistas of
■^•ater stretching on* in every direction.
On account of the danger of cave-ins
from the pressure of the boiling waters
beneath, hundreds of points were rigor
ously guarded. Pumping engines, belch
ing forth smoke and sparks, added to the
thrill and grave an impression that a
universal conflagration was raging. The
« lty -was plunged in darkness to-night,
relieved only by the campfires of the
«FolCler3 at the water's edge, or the flick
ering torch of come floating sentinel, re
jected weirdly in the water covered
areas which once were streets or ave

A PLAT BY CANDLE LIGHT.
Th* Champs Elyee>s, ordinarily a.
pathway of brilliant light, had hand lan
tern? strung along the curbs to-night.
The usually gay boulevards were
"Tapped in silence and darkness. The
restaurants and cafes were reduced to
dim candles and Venetian lamps.. Most
of the theatres were closed, but the
Comedis Fr&ncaise. with both its elec
tricity'and heat gone, was open, Jules
Oaretie, the manager, explaining: to the
meagre audience before the curtain rose
that he considered that the national the
atre of Franco should not close its doors.
■ - We will give a performance," he said,
"«ith candles, as in the days of Molierc,
snd show the world that Paris can be as
heroic as in the time of revolution." t
Although there is no intention on the
part of the government to declare mar
tial law. the completely submerged dis
tricts, such as Javel, are in the hands
of the military to prevent pillaging. The
soldiers have orders to give short shrift
to criminals caught in .he act of looting.
Thus far there have been no such cases
within the city, but the danger is great,
-s th* French usually keep their money
and valuables in their homes.
Ourtide of Paris, however, many de
plorable instances of looting have been
reported. A regular band of thieves ha.-
been at work In the vicinity of Charcn
ton, but the soldiers have been shooting
them at sight. The Zouaves last night
killed two of the pillagers at Ivry and
two at Brie. The ghouls have now
transferred their operations to the de
vastated region below Paris, many at
tempts to loot the deserted villas and
homes being reported. The papers re
count many deeds of heroism by priests
?< AlfomilJ*. who continued the work of
refceue between midnight and daylight,
"hen the soldiers, sailors and firemen,
• fter several days without rest, had be
•ome exhausted. Sisters of Charity
rowed to houses, giving assistance in
several ca«s of starvation.
Besides the aid distributed directly by
the government and the municipality,
nora than $250,000 from the fund raised
by (be newspapers has been handed over
so the various relief societies and the
local authorities of the various town*
*nd linages near Paris. The press re
fers gratefully to the spontaneous help
crnijlig from abroad, and makes partic

pathy in the United States.
PLIGHT OP THE RAGPICKERS.
A pitiable feature of the flood in Gen
nevUHers i. the plight of the colony of
6.000 ragpicktrs. a fourth of whom are
children. They are the poorest of all the
Paris poor, and early each morning they
cross th» Seine to sort the refuse barrel*
of the great city. Their village was a
cluster of miserable hovels of plaster
ac«j earth, flanked with heaps of bones,
rags, iron .. n-l odds and ends. On th«:
bursting of the dam the torrents of the
Seine swept away everything. Tho*e of
the iCpeeken who had remained in the

scantily clad. They suffered bitter!?

Ex-Senator Vbnn Tells Inside
Coal Strike History.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune]
Pittsburg. Jan. SO.— That the anthracite
coal mines of Eastern Pennsylvania twice
during the great miners' ?trike of 190 i! nar
rowly escaped passing into the hands or
the national government or the state was
the declaration made last night by ex-Stat«
Senator William Fllnn, in a speech at the
Tariff Club dinner.
Senator Flinn told for the first tim# the
inside story of the events leading up to
President Roofevelfs intervention and th©
settlement of the strike.
Mr. Flinn intimated that if the footl mer
chants cannot be made to serve the people
at reasonable figures "some such remedy
as this— seizure of their plants— must be
applied by the nation or th© state. 1 " Refer
ring to the coal strike, Mr. Flinn said:
"In 1902 Governor Stone asked me to vibit
him at Harrisburc to confer with him on
the anthracite coa< strike. By his request,
I visited Xew York to ask the head cf ths
anthracite coal combination to give ehe
miners another hearing. The request was
refused.
"I returned to : Harrisburg to give the

What I would do if I were Governor of the
state. 1 said T would call the Legislature
together an d recommend that it take mines
and pay for them, this betngr within the
province of the state, and there is no dif
ference between coal and food.
"Governor Stone went to see the Presi
dent. Mr. Roosevelt asked if he as Gov
ernor would give entry into Pennsylvania.
for a division of United States troops. The
Governor replied he would. The President
said:
' 'I will give the anthracite operators ray
ultimatum, either to open the mines or I
will take possession of them and settle for
the coal taken next summer."
"The President sent his messenj-r to
Now York. He delivered hid message. It
was denounced as anarchy, with the state
ment that the President would be im
peached. Aftsr a time one of the wisest
men in the combination said: 'Yes. but
there will be no votes to convict him.'
"The Gray Arbitration Commission was
then appointed."

REFORM OF LORDS
LXIOXISTS PROPOSE
JO IXT CABIXET.
Abolition of Hereditarjf Pnn
ciplc Accepted -Legisla
tive Outlook.
L«nd<?n. Jan. 30.— With* Premier As
qulth on the Continent and Chancellor
Lloyd-George closely following him. trio
politicians are all resting on their arms,
discussing what lines of battle will be
taken up in the new Parliament. The
moral generally drawn from the elections
is that the country does not want radi
cal changes in the House of Lords or m
the government policies. The spirit of
conciliation, therefore, is .broad, and
schemes for a compromise are* being de
bated.
The Conservative papers propose the
most interesting plan, that a joint Cabi
net be chosen from the most moderate
men of both parties to carry on the gov
ernment for about two years, and that
a truce 'be declared on party questions
in the mean time. A royal commission
to investigate the country's fiscal- policy
and to make recommendations regarding
tariff reform is proposed.
The newspaper schema of coalition
government is not taken seriously by the
Liberals, who, having won a victory,
even if it Is a very narrow one. object to
having their opponents dictate the pro
gramme. Lord Rosebery's name is put
forward for the Premiership in the com
promise Cabinet, but Rosebery has for
a long time refused office, and his pop
ularity now Is at a low mark because of
his course on the budget issues.
The reform of the . House of Lords
seems to.be the one thing assured.. Both
parties support it now. The Conserva
tives and the Lords themselves are will
ing to adopt moderate changes immedi
ately, lest reforms which would knock
the foundations from the upper house
be carried. The result Is likely to be the
abolition of the hereditary principle, and
that the second and succeeding, genera
tions shall, no longer have a vote, -with
the exception of those who shall prove
their fitness to legislate, by service . in
the House of Commons, in civil office or
in the army or navy. The Conservatives
are willing that the Lords shall be de
prived of the power to hold up taxation
bills If the plan be adopted nothing
which could be considered new legisla
tion shall be included in those. bills.
The Liberals want to deprive the House
of Lords of the power to veto any bill
whatsoever. Their favorite plan would
be to compel the Lords to adopt any bill
sent to them for the third time by the.
Hoiuse of Commons, which, while making
the House of Commons consider a re
jected bill carefully, would give that
body the power to pass any legislation,
on vrhlch it had determined, in one ses
sion.
It is taken for granted that the House 1
of Lords will pass the budget, since the
country has decided against the Lords
on the face of the election returns, but
the Cabinet may be obliged to erase the
whiskey taxes in order to get. th* votes
of the Irish- members.— • •
Beyond the reform of .the House of
Lords and the passing of* the budget
Parliament Is not likely to get far with
anything. The Irish members probably
will obtain the introduction of a Home,
Rule measure, but the Conservatives
will oppose that solidly, and a number
of Liberals are pledged against . Home
Rule also. .Several Cabinet changes are
probable when the new government is
formed. . Reginald McKenna. who has
been unpopular as First Lord of the Ad
miraJty. will probably be dropped. He
may receive, a peerage. Richard Burdon
Kaldane. Secretary of State for War.
may' become head of the navy. John
Burns, president of the Local Govern
ment Board, .will probably succeed Her
bert J. Gladstone as Home Secretary.
"Winston Spencer Churchill will take the
place left vacant by Mr. Burns, and they
will each receive $25,000 instead of $12.
£OO as salaries, both places having been
raised by the last Parliament, with the
provision that the occupants should
draw the increase during their tenure of
office.
