Yesterday's session of the committee •was devoted. exclusively to the insurance eiod of the investigation, with Willis O. ■Robb. the manager sC the New- York Fire Insurance Exchange, as the chief ■witness.

Mrs. Rex returned to find a crowd in front of her home. "There's a bull in there, bustin" your house to smithereens:" yelled a young ster, and the noise verified it. Mrs. Rex and neighbors, who entered by the front door, were almost smoth ered by gas. They found the bull had wedged itself between two doors leading into the narrow kitchen.

WOMAN'S CABIN RAMMED No Loss of Life. Though Many Are C*t and Bruised. While Other Are Sufferers from Shock. The ferryboats Cincinnati and St. Louis, of the Pennsylvania Railroad, crashed together last night off the slip at Exchange Place. Jersey City, and threw the hundreds of passengers, many of whom uvri> women, into a ranrir. One woman was badly cut on the right side, while two others were also slightly in jured. Many were badly shaken up and suffered from shock. The Cincinnati was starttas f °r New York, while the St. Louis was on her way from New York. The tide was run ning strong, and the pilot of the Cincin nati was having trouble making for the slip. It was just as the boat was about to enter, and at the instant when it was completely hidden from the St. Louis, that the crash came. The freeboard of the Cincinnati struck the forward side of the women's cabin of the St. Lo:;is and stove a hole in it. Both boats were well loaded with pas sengers, who ran about wildly, ready, many of them, to leap overboard if their fears wore not quickly allayed. The women passengers who were in the cabin were huried across the r<n>m and began to shriek in fright. Mr^. Nester Eltine. of No. 194 York street, Jersey City, was tossed up against the side f the cabin with considerable force, badly injuring her right side. She was taken to St. Francis's Hospital, Jer- Bey City. Three other women were hurt badly enough to require treatment.

They were a!l at tended by the physicians who were sum moned and then went to their homes. Many other passengers were slightly cut or bruis> d. According to the pilots' stories, both gave the signal to back, hut it was then too late to avert th" -rash. The <"in cinnati escaped without damage. WOMEN LESS BEAUTIFUL English Artist Says It's Difficult Now to Find Good Models. IBy Telegraph to Dmj Tribune..] _ Chicago, Dec. 1. — A London cable dis patch to "The News" says: "Yes." says Marcus Stone, the eminent Royal Academician, in an interview this morning, "the English woman's figure, like that of her American sister, is be coming- less beautiful. Excessive athletics spoils the forms of American voraen, and all will look like rail splitters by and by. The English woman's figure, once, so exquisite, because so natural, suffers from corset distortion, and it is almost impossible for an artist to find a gx>od model any more among our women. "We artists are students of anatomy, much the same as are surgeons, and we know how the figures <>f women are dis torted. Women's necks used to be extraordinarily graceful, but the normal woman's neck has disappeared. All are too short, owing to the shoulders being held so high by corsets. The square ap pearance of the shoulders of the women of to-day is due to the constriction of the waist by the corset. The flat chested women seen everywhere also show the results of wealing corsets. "My figures for painting are taken from the women at the beginning of the last century, when high waisted gowns v.'ere worn without corsets. The young v.-omen who sit f«>r me cannot pose in these gowns properly. They always sit as if they were wearing corsets. They have lost the knack of bending nat urally and gracefully."

WOMAN m STARVES PAINTING OWN PORTRAIT Miss Finley Gave Thirty Years of Life Emulating Example of Whistler. RECOGNITION DID NOT COME Found Dying Before Mirror in Philadelphia Studio, with Smile on Face — Had Rich Relatives. [By Tel«?praph fea The Tribune. 1 Philadelphia. Pec. L— Miss Ella Fin'.ey, an artist and sculptor, died in the Ger man Hospital to-day from starvation, after giving thirty years of her life to emulate ihc example of Whistler and force more public recognition than the public wa? willing to lavish. Was Finley s last work, and it lasted f,, r W p°k?. was to pose before a mirror in her studio and paint a water color of herself, forcing a smile on her once pretty features that her friends might remember her as she was. The death of Mi-s Finley is one of the saddest that ever occurred in this city. Occupying a handsome studio 'at No. I€l3 Chestnut street, surrounded by every luxury from friends to furniture, but without food, she labored for years painting and moulding inanimate clay into works of art. Her entire life was consecrated to art. It was her deter mination to reach the goal of her ambi tions, even though it cost he-- life, which it did just as she had reached her fiftieth Twice during the last thirty years Miss Finiey had neared the goal of her ambitions. This was years ago, when she exhibited several small pieces— both paintings and sculpture— at the local Academy of Fine Arts. Her efforts were praised, were sold and brought good pries. Then she aspired to higher things, refusing absolutely to become a dauber, and as a result she died, the only eatable thing- in her studio being a mouldy crust of bread. The artist friends of Miss Finley did not become aware of her condition until last Sunday, when Dr. D. Chullis Faust v.-rnt to the studio to pay her a friendly visit. He found her sitting before the mirror and the finished painting of her self. He also noticed her pallor, and in sisted on making a professional exam ination. Within three hours she had been sent to the German Hospital. There her case was diagnosed as "peri tonitis, brought on by starvation." An operation was deemed necessary to save her life, but she was unable to rally, in her weakened condition, and died this morning. >lisss Finley was the daughter of James Finley, a painter. She began the study of art at the- Academy of Fine Arts in this city- about thirty years ago. She continued until ISOB. studying sculpture most of the time, but eventually was forced to give up her studies owing to the cost of !nstruction and of materials. It was th<n she took up painting, but she was best known as a sculptor, most of her best figures being in miniature. Until her brother, who was an Arizona State Senator and a wealthy mine owner, died in 1898, life was comparatively easy for Miss Finley. Her brother regularly sent her a monthly remittance for .Sl<K» and with this she was enabled to follow lier art bent. She also had a wealthy sister, wife of a prominent San Francisco attorney; f>ut the sisters drifted apart and the dead woman seldom heard from her San Francisco relative. For the last five years close friends of Miss Finley have been endeavoring to get her to give up "her art." Her answer invariably was. "My work will be recognized some time. I am working along much the same lines as Whistler. He waited twenty years before recognition came, as was due him. I may wait longer, but eventually I will come." Only l;tPt week one of her women artist friends endeavored to persuade her to enter the commercial illustrating field. She became indignant when In formed that she could make much money with which to enable her to continue her higher studies. She answered the friend ly advice with: "I would rather starve to death than do thf trash you are doing."'

FLIGHT ENDS IN HAPPINESS Tallman" s Diary Tells of Simple Life When They Had Flap jacks for Breakfast. Beatrice Sanders and La Ver» Tall man. the erstwhile babes in the cave, were married yesterday in Newark at the home of the bridegroom's mother, Mrs. Emily Tallman. No. 12H Somerset otreet. The Rev. Dr. Lyman Whitney Allen, pastor of the South Park Presby terian Church, perforated, the ceremony, the only witnesses being the girl's father and Mrs. Tallman. Beatrice and her lover reached New- ark about '2 o'clock in the afternoon, ac companied by Mr. and Mrs. Sanders. They had gone from Tonkers. where the couple had been held for safe keeping by Captain Lent of the Tonkers police :orce to await the arrival of their par ents. "When the trair. arrived at the Market rtreet station in Newark Mrs. Sanders and a friend got off. while Mr. Sanders and the two lovers of the primitive re mained aboard until the South street station was reached. Then they went directly to the Sander- home, at No. iy*> Clinton avenue. At 4:30 o'clock Beatrice and La Vere arrived at the marriage license bureau m the Newark City Haii. Their parents were with them as the license was made out. Both gave their ag« sas arveajseaa), ;ind Tallman said he was a dr-iggist by oirupation. As soon as the Dap^r had been made out the party went to Tail man's home, wher* 1 the ceremony was performed- Mrs. Taliman and Mr. and Mrs. Sanders had made the marriage a condition on which the cnars^ of vagrancy against the two would be withdrawn. Tallman Wants to Tiura Aut-a^ No one in the wedding party would answer any questions. The young man simply said that if he were so inclined he could '•tell a great story" ahout th<Hr life in the cave. He sa.d. how.-ver. with utmost seriousness, that h<=- would write a book about it himself. The romance of "Paul and Virginia" has a modern parallel in the story of the way in which Beatrice Sanders and La Vere Tallman spent six weeks within the shelter of a i aye in the t'atskilfs. near Palenville. Flipping flapjacks and cook ing corn cakes in an underground home, while bats and smoke played hide and seek about their heads, did not dampen the enthusiasm of toe two :> oung lovers. They were at least plentifully supplied with a practical philosophy which smoothed over many of their youthful difficulties, and they viewed such things with happy eyes. Un September IS Beatrix and La Vere left their homes in Newark, stag gering beneath the weight of two heavy blankets, a small rifle, a shotgun and a meagre supply of kitchen implements. They crossed the river and missed a boat for Catskill. They stayed that night In the city and started next day. When they reached Catskil! they took the train to Palenville and found a cave which had been described to La Yen by David Kellar, a friend of his. It was an idea! retreat for persecuted lovers. hedged about by protecting trees and shielded by kindly Nature from prying eyes and chilling winds. Back to Nature In a Cave. A stone's throw from the ca\ a lay a limpid, glistening lake, and here It was that "Paul and Virginia" spent the long, crisp September evenings, snared the trout from their lair, and performed their primitive ablutions. It seemed an idyllic spot for the boy and the girl. Although they had only $30 when they left the protection of their Newark homes to avoid parental objection to their marriage. La Vere and Beatrice so economized in their cave keeping that they managed to live a life of compara tive luxury in the wilderness. When the flsh in the little lake were bashful about rising to the lure of the hooked the boy would track his way through th© silent woods and return with a rabbit, a chipmunk or a squirrel hanging to his belt. Beatrice proved to be an expert cook, according to Tallman. and. although their eyes would fill with tears as they bent over the rampflre they were tears induced by smoke, not remorse.
