SEW Y"»K, Jan. 10 —At the confer
ence to-dav between the bankers and
presidents of railroad lines west of
Chicago and St. lx>uis. which lasted
about three hours. Charles F. Adams
William B. strong and Frank H. Bond
who were appointed a committee at
the last meeting to perfect a plan of
organization and confer with tha inter
state com merce com mission .submit ted
a report and plan. In the report the
committee says it ha- considered that
in the matter of tr;. "c it wa« best to
adhere strictly to the agreement known
a« tti" agreement of presidents ut J*e
! l't of January. W. They have not
sought to extend the provisions of
that agreement or introduce into the
; pre-cut plan features likely to excit
discussion. They have sought to in
troduce. in tha suuple-t po--iblef'>rm. ,
the machinery necessary to secure the
i inter-stale. otuuitrcr act and at the
' same time to make the agreement of
January 1 effective. In order more
effectually to set-tire the results, it jj
proposed that the association should
tie an association of presidents, to the
end that the highest officials of the
various companies may 1* made rc-;
sponsible one to another.
THE cLEAmso-aotrsK PLAS.
The plan appear-, to be in its entire
ly very similar to that of the proposed
: clearing-house, which created so much
l comment a short time ago. It is -üb
| -tantially a- follows: The object of
' the as-ociation i the enforcement of
the provisions of the inter-state com-:
merce act and the establishment and :
| maintenance of public, reasonable,
uniform and stable rates in conform-'
ity with the provisions thereof, also to
; secure complete retorts of competitive
traffic, subject to the provisions of the
, interstate commerce act, and ni'h
| other (traffic as is seemed advisable
. The board of managers 'hall consist
j of an accredited representative of each
| company, the president of which is a
member of the association. The rate
; com m Ittee- appoivted by the board of j
managers for the freight and pas-en-,
|g» r departments, shall be constituted
' whose province it shall be to consider
j all proposed changes in rates, rules
j and regulation- of traffic, -übject to
I approval of the as-ociation. Their :
conclusions, when unanimous, shall
l>e made effective when they ,-o order , !
j but if they differ the question at issue
shall be ri ferred to the board of man
' ager-, and if they disagree, it «hall lie ;
• arbitrated by the executive board as ;
hereinafter provided. A provision of
through rate- is provided for.
One officer of each company the
! president ol which is a member of the
1 association shall In - held responsible
j for the strict maintenance by his com
i tony of all the rates and rules estab
lished by the a-sociation. The U>ard
i of managers -hall hereafter establish
such rules and regulations a- it may !
, deem eipedient. to limit needless out
lay and reckless striving for business
through separate agencies or the pay
' ment of commissions; <>r they may, if
! they deem proper, totally abolish and
forbid the same in whole or in part, or j
j cau-e joint agencies to !>e e-tablished,
I the expenses of which shall lie paid by
I the as-ociation. The auditor »f the
j association shall have authority to ex
! amine and check any and all accounts
jof each company. N'o vouchers or
: other form of concession which would
j decrease established rate- or influence
I the routing of business -ball lie pai l or I

the executive board. ' nuptroller- or

their re-|iective presidents *■> pa.-- no

i different from those duly authorized.

tion -hall certify to their correctness,
and in < i-c Irregularities are cbargul
may be examined under oath by the
! executive Iniard.
When a charge is made to the ex-'
ecutive board that any provision of
the inter-state commerce act ha- lieen
violated or any rate, rule or regulation
\ established by the association disre
garded, the accused shall lie given 10
j days in which to reply, and if after

Hfituii, Pa. Jan. 10.—There is
mourning and sorrow in many a
household in Reading Uvday. The
pall of death hangs orer the city. Fa
thers, mothers, brothers, sisters, rela
tives and friends are grief-stricken
over the wreck of last night. Perhaps
one hundred spirits are bushed for
ever in death as a result of the wreck
and ruin wrought in this city by the
The cyclone left the entire t ity in
darkness, relieved subsequently by
electric light* and huge bonfires which
shed a lurid glare over the scene of
death. AU night long brave and will
ing hands wwM in the work of res
cue. The disaster was fully as bad as re
ported last night. The hospitals ami
undertaking establishments are filled
with the victims. The physicians are
all bu«y. and many private houses
have been opened for the accommoda
tion of the injured.
This morning everything was di
rectly in contrast with the l'ury of last
night. All was again bright "and glo
ri.n.s in the heaven-, as though mock
ing the work of last night. The I'oli-h
ehurch disaster ef several months ago
a" one of the most herrible accidents
that has sUrtied tin- oemraunity. but
the kiss of life of that fatal cave-ir. \
sinks into comparative insignificance
when placed ia parallel with the awful
vi itation ef last evening.
Mayor Kennev at 10 o'clock thi.-
uiorning issued the following procla
mation : "I hereby earnestly appeal to |
the professional. business 'and other
citizens who may 1-e able to favorably
respond to meet at the courthouse this
afternoon at 1:30 o'clock to devise
wa\ s and means to aid the injured
and .1 ,-t the families of tho-e «ii®
pen-bed last night in the fall of the
silk-mill at the Philadelphia Head
ing railroad paint-shop. The fearful
cyclone that struck this city at 5:31>
lsi-t evening has brought sorrow and
want to many of our |ieoplr who are
in such circumstance- as to l>e unable
to meet the emergency, and the occa
sion calls loudly for immediate action.
Quick to respond to others in distress,
do not fail to do speedy justice to out
own grief-stricken people."
The work of rescne was greatly re
tarded from the singular manner in
which the silk mill collapsed. It did
not fall, but was bodilv crushed down,
turning in upon itself in one mass.
Not a vestige of the walls remain
standing above the stone foundation.
The rafters and titulars of the flooring
project in all directions. As the build
ing was steam-heated the ruins did
not take fire; otherwise not one of the
unfortunates could po-siMv hwvi es
caped death in the most appalling
The only eye witness to the disaster,
as far as known, was Mrs. Gimmill.
residing near the mill. "About 20
minutes of fi o'clock," said she to an
Associated l'res- reporter, "I heard
an awful crash. Thinking it was a new
house bring put up alongside us. I ran
to the frontdoor. A great cloud of dust
hung over the silk mill and I could
hear the crashing of timbers and the
roar of falling walls. The next mo
ment 1 -aw the mill a great heap of
ruins, from the midst of which came
such an awful moaning, groaning and
terrible cries as I never want to hear
again. Not a soul could I see coming
out of the mill, and it seemed many
minutes to me before anybody came
to the spot."
Teams of every description, omni
buses. coaches, fire wagons, ho-pital
van- and private vehicle- werepres-eil
into service at>d were running rapidly
to and from the scene of the di-asttr
all night, bearing the bodies of the
wounded, dying ami dead to their
homes or hospitals. From the -tate
nient of some of those who escaped
from the building, it apjiears to have
gone down in an instant. There was
a loud crash of breaking timbers in the
mill. All rushed toward the main
door-. A good many succeeded in
getting out. Four girls saved them
selves bv jumping fiom the second
story windows. The tir-t rumbling
noise was followed instantly by the
falling of the building, the upper
stories going first with its human load
Had it not been for the fact that but
few of the hands were on the third
and fourth tloois at the time, scarcely
a life would have been saved.

with his life, having received several
