event since the death of Pope Leoi
Fires in Rome are exceptional be
cause of the heavy stone and brick
construction of the . buildings, and
t he outbreak of flames in such a con
spicuous place, wherein were many
celebrated treasures, brought out
great numbers of anxious people in
spite of the heavy rain, which had
be en falling thruout the day .
The safety of the pope was the first
thought in every one's mind, but this
was soon assured. When the pontiff
arrived at the scene he ordered th at
the,firemen of Rome be -.cjaljigd^^.,
This was done by telegraph. The
firemen arrived in about ten minutes,
and althd they brought |$ur ^engines
with them and were at oftce ready to
begin operations* it took some time to
find the best way to get sufficient wa
ter supply with which to fight the fire
In the meantime the flames had be
gun'to break out of the windows and
were destroying the roof. The flames
lighted up the entire district and gave
t he impression that nothing could
their fury.
When the fire engines began work
ing, three rooms were alrea dy entire

extending to the other apartments.
The pope withdrew as soon as he saw
that everything possible was being
done to fight the fire.

for the first time since the fall of the
temporal power of the Vatican, the
mayor of Rome, the prefect, police of

newly appointed minister of justice,
entered the Vatican in their official
capacities. They gave orders direct

and participated personally in the

by Fire Marshal Freel, who said to
day that after investigation he had
come to the conclusion that the cause
was accidental.
H e said that he learned that the
tenants were in the habit of going to
the woodshed, where the fire started
at all hours ot the night to chop wood,
and that it was customary for the men
to smoke while they chopped. This
led the fire marshal to think that the
fire was probably caused by some one
accidentally dropping a match into
some inflammable material.

New York, Nov. 2.Sensational al
legations of willful misstatement and
falsification, swindli ng and. fraud in
the organization arid flotation of the
United States Shipbuilding company,
of attempts to misle ad and deceive
the, investing public by erroneous
prospectus statements and of a delib
erate plan to wreck the. company by
withholding the earnings of the Beth
lehem Steel company are contained in
t he report of. Receiver James Smith,
Jr., of the United States Shipbuilding
company, just made public.
The report concludes with the re
commendation that suit be brought
against all persons who received full
stock of the company without paying
full value therefor, including the pro
moters of the consolidation, the vend
ors of the constituent plants, and
Charles M. Schwab, to recover from
them such amount as necessary to
pay the debts of the company i h full.
Receiver Smith also recommends
t he sale of the Crescent shipyard
plant in New Jersey, and the Harlan
& Hollirigsworth plant at Wilmington,
Del., subsidiary plants not now in op
eration, to avoid further loss by depre
ciation, and the enforcement of a re
ceivership for the Bethlehem Steel
company, to insure the payment of
dividends in the Bethlehem stock held
by the United States Shipbuilding
company. I n the words of the report,
t he organization of the company is
characterized as an "artistic swindle."
Receiver Smith states that the value
of the plants, their earnin gs and
working capital, given In alleg ed
tho ro reports of expert accountants,
vary so muoh from actu al figures "a s
to Impel the belief that the figures
were wilfully misstated " th at it is

and, just as had been anticipated, all
the games were close.
In fact, the games broug ht out strik
ingly the most noticeable and encou r
aging feature of western football this
autumnthe high class of a large

perhaps, have six teams in the west

and th at a s far a s the Beth

"its earnings have been withheld in a

The report deals freely with the
name of Charles M. Schwab, and the
nature of the Bethlehem transaction,
sa ys Mr. Smith, is such as "to justify
him in saying th at he did not sell the
Bethlehem Steel company, but took
over the United States Shipbuilding

"straight football," the badgers were
the ei**al of the -maroons^ Chicago
won because, besides playing Wiscon
sin eveii,rtt
had Eckersall to drop kick.
Wisconsin has a very strong team,
and'one, that has great .possibilities of
development. Vanderboom,- Bain and
Wrabetz have few.equals in the west
as aggressive line plunge rs and run
ners. The Wisconsin style of play is
adapted to their peculiar abilities, and
it will be a wonderful ly good line th at
denies them a score.
When Curtis succeeds in strength
ening the right side of his line and
improves his kicking department Wis
consin will be a dangerous foe for any
team. Wisconsin is not thru by any
means. The badgers ought to win
from Northwestern, and they have a \ lived happily and several months ago
first-class fighting chance against the
two leaders, Michigan and Minnesota,
both of whom they play.
They are game losers at Madison.

London, Nov. 2.Mr. Massey, the Brit

confirmed previous reports of the terribly
destitute condition of the 20,000 Mace
donian^ refugees in that district.
He estimates that there are altogether
60,800 refugees along the Bulgaro-Turkish
frontier, and says that relief, and especial
ly blankets, is urgently needed, as a rig

The disturbance first manifested it -
self about 1:80 Saturday morning and
it continued until late in the after
noo n. The climax of the first "storm"
came at 8:30 o'clock in the morning
and telegraph men in Chicago agree
th at it was the worst in years. To
ward sunset the waves became less
frequent and in some parts of the
country nearly ceas ed for a few
hours. During the evening the second
"storm" began and it continued all
- The Third "Storm."
A third severe disturbance was felt
early this morning. Telegraph lines
coming into Chicago from the north
and northwest were most affected.
Lines coming from southern points
were barely affected. The current
came in pulsations, gradually becom
ing strong and then diminishing to re
turn at intervals of a few minutes or

Scientists have recently agreed that
somewhere in the universe is a great
fund of electrical energy. Occasion
ally this energy brea ks loose, and
centering itself on the earth indulges
in freakish antics.
Professor E . C. Freeman, a head of
t he department of electrical engineer
ing in Armour Institute, believes that
t he disturbance is due to the aurora
borealis, and th at as a result the
nprthern lights will be visible In Chi
cago for several nights.
What Might Happen.
:'"The auro ra borealis is now gener
ally conced ed to be caused by elec
trical discharges in the higher atmo
sphere." said he , "and it is known to
be, in some, way connected with the
sun spots. Just what the connection
has not been determined. Theoretic
ally jsuch a disturbance as that of yes
terday if intensified might extermi
nate all life on the face of the earth,
but there is little likelihood of this.
Had the currents been more contin u
ous and of a slightly higher volta ge
they would have been perceptible to
the human body."
A Storm In the Sun .
Professor C. G. Comstock, director
of the Washburn observatory at Mad
ison, Wis.,, says the cause of the cur
rents probably is a storm in the sun .
, "Probably the real cause is severe
disturbance on the face of the sun
produci ng heavy, electrical currents
which affect the,earth," said he . "At
least this is the belief of the scien
tists." Professor Comstock said that
a series of eruptions or disturbances
occur on the surface of the sun In cy -
cles of eleven years.
"These disturbances," he said, "are
much like thunder storms on earth."

Ehrenreich had three children, two
daughte rs and a son . None of these
children lived at home, as their father
abused them. The eldest daughter,
Matilda, aged 18, is in Portland, Ore

lives at Osseo, Minn. The youngest
daughter, May, aged 14, has made her

Commissioner Richards of tHe Gen
eral Land Office Makes a
- Startling Report.i!-
Washington, Nov. 2.The annu al
report of V. A . Richards, commission
er of the general .land office, which
has been made public, says that there,
is a large increase in the total num-'
ber of supposedly fraudulent land en
tries over the preceding year.
H e attributes their discovery largely
to an order of the secretary of the
interior, dated Nov. 2, 1902, directing
the investigation of all entries made
under the timber and stone act in the
states of California, Oregon and Wash
ington. Und er this Order alone 10.000
entries have been suspended and there
are now fifteen special agents of the
land office in that field engaged in fer
reting out the fraudulent entries.
Commissioner Richards also states
th at during the year there were re
ported 125 unlawful inclosures of pub
lic lands, covering an area 2,605,390
acres. Seventy-nine of these inclosures
have be en removed and proceedings
are pending to compel the removal of
t he remainder. H e says, however,
th at the total number here mentioned
is only a fraction of the inclosures
maintained in violation of the law, the
special agents having found it Impos
sible to give attention to many others
vestigatlon of the entries under the
because of the order for a special in
tlmber and stone act.
