Vesuvius are in a condition toi derir.g on panic, says a cablegram from Naples. Many homes have been abandoned for the open air, although there has been a thick fog all day and the atmosphere has been dense with volcanic ashes and the fumes of subterranean fires. | The churches are crowded day and night ' with people praying for deliverance from ai | impending peril, manifestations of which | are heard and felt In explosions which re ! seinble a heavy cannonading and in the tremblings of the earth, which are con ' stantly recurring. The main stream of lava proceeding f:om j Vesuvius ii 2j0 feet wide, and it advances at times at the rate of twenty-one Ceet In a minute, the intense heat destroying vegeta tion before the stream reaches it. The peasants of Porticl, at the we.it foot of Vesuvius, cleared their grounds of vine yards and trees in the effort to lessen the duriger from tire, and resisted the progress of the lava to their utmost. The population of Boscotrecase, on til* southern declivity of the mountain, has sought safety Ui flight, aad Bosco lJoale, to tVie eastward. 1s also threatened. Women of this village, weeping with frigid, c.ir iled a statue of St. Anne as far a:} they could go to the Mowing Java, imploring a miracle to stay the advance of the consum ing stream. The cemetery at Boscotreease has been Invaded l>v lava. The snene at night is one of mingled grandeur and horror, as from the summit of Vesuvius there leaps a col umn of lire fully a thousand feet in height, the glare lighting the sky and sea for many miles. Occasionally great masses of r.jlten stone, some weighing us much as a ton, are ejected from, the crater. The viilag j of Torre del Greco, which has been eight times destroyed, atwl as often rebuilt, Is again threatened, and tlie inhabitants are In extreme terror. I *? $10,000 SUIT AT NORFOLK. Heirs of the Late Louis Zanier Seek Damages. ! The trial of the *10,000 damage wilt of the lieirs or Louis Zanier of Wash ngton. who, while at work on the I.aw building at Norfolk, fell through an elevator slia,i.t and was killed, began in that city yesterciay be | fore a jury of seven, this now being per 1 thlssible in the trial of civil suits in Vir ginia. The action is against E. Tatterson, contractor for the new building, and under whom Zanier was working as a subcontrac tor. The defense la that the Washington man was guilty of contributory negligence in that he attempted to ascend to the top or the building on an elevator wh'ch was used for freight only, employes having been warned against using it for any other pur pose. Zanier started up in the elevator with a heavy load of cement. The bottom gave way and Zanier fell through. John Zanier. brother of the victim, in whose name the suit was brought as administrator, js at Norfolk prosecuting the case, having ar rived last night from th'H city. The Zaniers live on New Jersey avenue southeast, and John Zanier Is In business at 338 Pennsyl vania avenue. Col. Wallace's Recovery. Col. William M.

Tbe Rev. William Elliot Griffls In tbe North American Review. Every law-abiding Japanese still rejoices that the liberal provisions of the funda mental law. put Into writing in 1KS9, are so full and explicit. All the world was amazed at the emperor's enormous limitation of his imperial prerogative. Though I speak with the furnace of Japanese party politics in near view! I can recall that when in Bos ton in 1889. with the faces of Japan's mighty dead, of the fifty-five of IS'jS, in memory, I first read this august text, every line of which seemed to me written in mar tyr blood. I wondered why meetings were not held in Faneuil Hall and the bells of the nation rung In sympathy with this Asian people. So wonderful ah event, tak ing place in Asia and within a hundred years of the Philadelphia instrument, seemed a political miracle. One almost ex pected the Independence bell to heal its crack and ring out congratulations. To im pugn or threaten that Constitution, or even to insult or lampoon the elder statesmen in the privy council, whose loyalty has been tried In fire, and whose patriotism grew in a field of swords, stems to me, an alien outsider, to be the height of folly ? the committing of national hara-kiri in the wrong age of the world. "No sensible Japa nese can go back of the text of the consti tution. Let him rather light the condition:! if he wants to, agitate for extension of the franchise, and strive for the political educa tion In duties even more ihan rights, of the fifty million of his brethren. Make the upper house of the diet a true senate with treatv-making power like that in Washing ton, faiid demand that the imperial ministers be responsible to tl.e diet ind not to the throne?but hardly yet. it is as certain as tlmi the sun rose this morning that because of the victories in Manchuria, a great ex tension of political privileges in Japan is to be looked for. Nevertheless, the very ex periences of the Japanese people since tho late war began, show that they are not yet ready for universal suffrage. Better, a thousand times. Count Okuma's policy of steady agitation and solid education than a single hour of mob demonstration! Lust of War. For, without denying the satisfactory plde and same noble features, war 13 little more than incarnated lust. Its moral consequences reveal hell's crop, as of poisonous toad stools. Nothing Is more ultimately disap pointing than success in many battles. To this effect Count Okuma had already sound ed warning. The inevitable aftermath is social plague and mora] pestilence. Twice hits the Japanese populace been deluded by the deceltfulness of war. In 181M-5, to tho Occident ignorant of the real organization of that amazing racial agglomeration railed "China," there was a war between Japan and China, in which Japan won first glory, then humiliation, and again money indem nity?with the certainty of having to spend it all quickly and of entailing an awful debt in fighting Russia. In reality, there never was any war between Japan and China, because Here is no such thing In ex istence as a Chinese empire In the sense that there Is a German, British or Russian empire. What southern Chinaman cared for what went on In Chili, or Shing King? It was "only north man's pidgin." What did happen was a war between all Japan and Peking, backed by but four or five out of the twenty-one Chinese provinces. And with what results to Japan? After the mobs and newspaper outbreaks against the treaty of Shlmonoseki. wild financial spec ulations led the nation into extravagance, neglect of real education, awful moral de terioration. and the necessity >f wasteful military and naval expansion, with exhaust ing outlay in getting ready for the care fully prearranged v tr with ltusiia.. How has it been in 1!W>? Even more de ceitful was this war w th its victories. The nation girded for the fray In January and February, 1904. At once followed Jie post ponement or jiaralysis of internal Improve ment. deterioration of education, and self-denial of the poor almost to starva tion. The land was drained of its youth, and the old men and women worked In the fields, widows and orphans uttered no cry. For a while, modesty, self-control, sacri fice, made the Japanese not only admirable, but models. But continued success made millions of them drunk of mind and imagi nation, while the statistics of loss were suppressed or manipulated with a secrecy that was horribly misleading. Forgetting that, with their leaders educated by Brit ish, German and American instructors, with modern machinery and forces borrowed from the most advanced nations, and near their base of supplies, they ought by all calculations to have won?for their enemy, not only the most backward of Europe and far behind In training, experience and science, fought at the fag end of his at tenuated empire?the populace failed also to realize that, "compared with European and American development, Japan's has been a mere bagatelle." These quoted words are not the cold decision of an alien, they are those of the elder statesman, Count Okuma. Again, as the same level headed wise man, who has all along given ccomonlcal and moral warnings to his coun trymen, made vivid in his article on "Mili tarism and the Hlse and Fall of States," he warned against bloodthlrstiness, and scouted the old popular worship of hara kiri, the sworded bully and the theatrical assassin. "Violence is the rul* of Bushldo (the warrior's code), and on violence It has been nurtured. It is out of touch with civilization." Popular Exultation. In H>05. especially after the Mukden vic tory, the moral tension of the nation was dangerously loosened. Rampant, degener ate, and over-fat with Russian blood, vis ions of the great mulct, so confidently ex pected. intoxicated the less wise among the Japanese. After Togo's victory they felt already the clinking of the Russian roubles in their hands. Again the atro cious proverb of the rebel reactionaries of 1S77, who refused to lay aside the sword, pay taxes and work, came into vogue: "Though the eagle be starving, it will not eat grain." After so interrupted a feast, during nineteen months, on (double-headed) eagle, Great-Bear pie and war jam, the peace milk of Portsmouth was loathsome to the new baby among the nations. Hear again the far-seeing Count Okuma. who was once made legless by the dynamiter's bomb concealed in the umbrella of a cham pion of decadent Bushido, clad in Euro pean evening dress. On a like occasion with the present, in the face of parochial pat riotism and insular bigotry, he failed not in warning rebuke. In July, 1903, he wrote again: "Today Japan has entered the country of competitive nations. If she imagines that the sources of a nation's advancement do not lie in civilization, but are to be sought in the remnants of feudal ideas, and If si.e relies on armed victories which en courage militarism and vitiate popular sen timent. she will be injuring her own prog ress and sowing thf% seeds of national de cay." In a word, the elder statesmen knew Ja pan's real conditions, soil, resources and the problems awaiting solution. They had but slight expectations of indemnity or ot anything save what Japan fought for and has won. As valuable as all brakes on the train, or steel shoes on the tire, is this body of old heads, whose pure mind and aim would screen the evolution of the Japanese into modern men and keep their country In the path of sure progress una the permanent respect of the world. In 17X7 old Franklin and well-balanced Washington were bitter, while Hamilton, Jefferson, Adams and Clinton were good; so today we appraise the Genro of Japan. The treaty of Portsmouth crowns their work. How superb th?lr record: Not alone with a Bismarck's energy of blood and Iron, but with the patient, calm, exquisite balance, unremitting industry and gifts of patient adjustment, of a Washington, or a Lincoln, they swept away medieval feudal ism. then made a new nation, and finally have won a place in the world's council of leading states. Japan's Great Problems. I.Ike Washington, having given free rein to the coursers of empire, they stop the steeds firmly at the goal. All the belter off for not getting an in demnity, th?.t would tempt the nation Into extravagance, insolence and folly, Japan will now fall back on the ancient virtues of her sons and daughters, and within a decide re;!<:im her fallow land, suck abun dance from the seas new and old, redeem Formosa, settle Yezo, exploit the metallic riches of southern Saghalln, set again in motion her paralyzed industries, open the mines of Kcrea and make the peninsula a rice field, and by trade in Manchuria and 011 the five continents win solid, permanent wealth In pli.ce of slippery war spoil. Every true friend must congratulate Japan that she got no indemnity from Russia. Apart from considerations of humanity, sound economics are'the basis of history, and de pendence on cardinal virtues the only safe guards of the future. This Is the end of an era. Japan's great est and nobler problems are ahead. Let the people ponder this?her "progress so far ti bagatelle." Let her face the truth and not the flatterer. The time for Bushido is past. Tradition and mythology will nut serve her. I.et the Japanese drop the ridiculous fiction of "2.300 years of history." enforce a policy of truth in all things as the best weapon, accept the glorious fact of her youth and rawness, cease to suppress academic free dom. gradually relax that excess of secrecy which easily degenerates into deception and that has recoiled on both nation and gov-'" ernment, and allow liberty to'the individual and in the home?where It does not yet exist ?educate her fifty millions, still mostly he'.min, and make the merchant's career honorable. Asia's fertility la like eternity Itself, its mineral treasures practically un touched. its ocean's wealth Inexhaustible and the possibilities of commerce un dreamed. The old ethnic hates are les sening. and the world is slowly but Burely learning that, though religions are many, religion is one. Thus the seed-beds of war may one by one become the gardens of arbitration and reason. Japan has Honored the sword and the fighter long enough. Lot the peace-promoter have his turn. Predominant in eastern Asia and in the northern Pacific, her supreme op portunity has come to show herself what she professes to foe?"second to none." I.et the spirit of the emperor and the elder statesmen be followed, and she will surely actualize her dream. WILLIAM ELLIOT GRIFFIS. Fatal Jump From Burning Building. Fire yesterday destroyed the top floor of the eight-story Chamber of Commerce build ing in Portland, Ore., and caused the death of Homer H.

These fifteen, discovering that they would be compelled to wait on a con tingent of dominies, failed to appear, and more had to he retained.
