New York, June i2 President New man of the New York Central and lake ( Shore railroads said to-day that the tw?nty-hour schedule of the Twentieth) Century limited train on the New York Central-Lake Shore line will he restored at once in place of the eigh-teen-hour Schedule on which the train ihad (been running for only a few days. President Newman said: "Since the sad accident which had happened on the lake Shore, I have had a consultation with the operating officials, who have explained that the accident was - caused by a misplaced switch, and was not due to the speed of the train, and they assure me that the present schedule can be safely and easily maintained. While I agree with the operating officials that there is no physical reason why the -schedule should .toe continued; nevertheless. In my judgment , te time of the Twentieth Century limited should be restored to twenty hours, and it will be done at once. Until the new schedule can be arranged the Twentieth Century limited train will leave New York at 8:30 p. in. and Chicago at 2:30 p. m., as at : present, but will run on a twenty-hour schedule, arriving at either terminal two hours later than at present-" ) , NINETEEN DEAVk Railroad Officials Declare Switch Was Maliciously Locked Open. f.' Cleveland, O., ' June 22. Nineteen dead and a dozen slightly Injured to night comprise the revised casualty list made by the wrecking last night at "Mentor, Ohio, of the east .bound Twen- ( tie'tn"'Cenury limited, the Lake Shore's eighteen-hour train, which ran into an open switch, crushed the Mentor depot and partly burned it up. scorching sev eral of the mangled corpses. The sur- j viving injured are not much hurt, al- i though several of , the dead lived '. to reach hospital ibeds before expiring. The Twentieth Century limited, ac cording to .announcement from New York, will hereafter return to a twenty-hour schedule, although none of the railroad officials ascribe the wreck to excessive speed. It is still maintained hy railroad of ficers that the switch was thrown open and locked and the switch light ex tinguished by some person, either a maniac or some one seeking revenge. i It Is still unknown to the police who this person is. A careful examination of the switch' to-day showed that it rwas in perfect condition. , Detectives are working on the case. Trainmen are of the opinion that' the engineer of the' Twentieth Century was deceived by the light of a switch Just beyond the open switch, the light of which, is said to have been out. v W. H. Marshal, general manage of the Lake Shore, says the speed of the train was .; not con tributary to the iwreck. He said that other Lake Shore trains travel through Mentor at a speed equal to that attained by the Twentieth Century last night, which ,i was not, Mr. Marshall said, above six ty miles an hour. The schedule for the train called for a speed of fifty seven miles an hour at Mentor. Coroner York of Lake county an nounced this evening that an iquest ; iwould begin next Monday in Paines iville. It Is possible that Investigations to morrow will develop that a boy med dled with-the switch at Mentor last night and caused the wreck of the Twentieth Century Limited. William Usher,, ticket agent of the Nickel Plate road, and James Barnes of Willoughby, reached the wreck twenty minutes af ter it occurred. On the way to the wreck they met a boy carrying a Ian tern. ; The boy said that he had been flown to shut a switch. The men went on, the the wreck and found the switch open and, locked., The men are of the opinion that the boy thought that there was a freight ahead of the Twentieth Century and opesed the switch to let it through' to take a siding. H. S.Storrs, general superintendent of the Lake Shore, said that the clew iwould be investigated to-morrow, al : though he is Inclined to doubt the story that a boy had possession of a key and could turn the switch. ; Dollar Extra for Expert Riflemen.

A press telegram of Tues day's date speaks of a "rear-guard ac tion," and there are rumors in the city that the Russian army Is retreating; but the latest dispatches received from Lieutenant-General Linevitch, bearing the same date, declared briefly that the Japanese advance had paused. A dis patch from Gunshu Pass of Wednes day's date says that the operations of the Japanese apparently ended after the last fight, and they appear to be merely clearing their immediate front. It is probable that the Russian ad vanced lines are crossing the railroad and will continue their retirement more or less hurriedly in order to avoid being flanked'and pocketed until the positions at Slpinghal are reached.
