NEW HAYEK, CONN., MONDAY APRIL 9. 1906.
VOL. LXX NO. 82 THE CARRLNOTON PUBLISHING CO. PRICE TWO CENTS. MORE VIOLENT. Mt. Vesuvius Actively In creases and Thousands of Inhabitants Are Fleeing. NO TRACE OF BOSCOTRECAZ COMMUNE OF 10,000 SOULS COM PLETELY OBLITERATED. People Escape to Naples to Which Place Panic Has Spread Two Heavy Earthquake Shocks Shatter Windows and Crack Walls People Rush to Streets Crying "the Madonna Has Forsaken'Vs) the End of the World Has Come" Lava Almost Surrounds Torre Annunzlnta Its 30,000 In habitants Evacuate Town by Hall and Steamers Observatory Destroyed A Terribly Magnificent Sight. Naples, April 8. The hope that Mount Vesuvius was becoming calm was dis sipated to-day, when the volcano be came more active than ever. The panic has spread to Naples. Two strong earthquake' shocks, which shat tered window panes and cracked the walls of buildings, were experienced to-day. The entire population rushed to the streets in terror, many persons crying "the Madonna has forsaken us; the end of the world has come." No ' trace, remains of Boscotrecaz, a commune on the southern declivity of the mountain, where up to forty-eight hours ago 10,000 persons lived, and Torre Annunziata, on the shores of the Gulf of Naples, o'ne mile to the southward, 19 almost surrounded by the Invading lava, and has been evacuated ' toy Its 30,000 inhabitants. The people were brought to Naples by trains, street cars, military carts and steam ships. Similar means of transportation are being used to take the people out of Torre del Greco. The police and carbineers are guarding the abandoned houses, and several members of the government also are there. A telegram from the mayor of San Sebastiano, a village near the observa tory, on the northwest declivity of Ve suvius, says the lava is approaching rapidly, and that the people are terror etricken. They have ibeen for nights without sleep, he says, and are desti tute and beg for assistance. The work of succor is hampered ow ing to delays to the, railway service, which Is Interrupted by red hot stones falling on the tracks. As yet it is im possible to count the craters that have opened, and from which streams of lava have flooded the beautiful, prosperous and happy land lying on the southeast chores of the Gulf of Naples. The atmosphere is heavily charged with electricty and now and then th& flashes of lightning are blinding, while the detonations from the volcano re semble in sound a terrible explosion. The churches of the city were open all Saturday night, and were crowded with canlc-stricken people. Members of the clergy are doing their utmost to calm their followers, but 'the effects ot their arguments go almost for naught when renewed earthquake shocks are experienced. With the danger and horror on the southern side, Vesuvius presents one ot the most splendid sights imaginable. The mountain of Are, whose speech in by detonation, whose acts are destruc tton, seems like an enraged giant de itermlned to make the pigmies of earth feel the might of its wrath. Here and there on the mountainside stand the blasted trunks of pine trees, their bare branches outstretched as though In protest against the devastation of the volcano. The duchess of Aosta, who is always to be found where misery exists, Is not sparing herself in her efforts to alle viate distress. The people call her an angel of mercy. To-day she took sev eral children from their weary moth ers, and in her carriage conveyed them to the royal palace, where they will re main until conditions are brighter. The observatory has been destroyed and Signor Mateucci, the director, and the employes had narrow escapes. They passed last night in the darkness save for the frequent nasnes ot ligntning, as the gas works and the electric light ing Dlant also were destroyed. The restaurant of the Funicular railroad. too. has been obliterated. Prisoners In jail on the mountain side went mad with terror and mutln led, and were only partially quieted by being brought here- But their fears have been communicated to the prison ers here, who may rebel at any mo ment. The situation is critical. Breathing is momentarily becoming more difficult, because of the poisonous fumes and smoke, while the hot ashes which are still falling tend to make life a burden. Contrary to expectations, the sea has not shown signs of being affected by the phenomena; but fears are enter tained that tidal waves may yet come, and many craft have put to sea. Visitors to Naples are avoiding the hotels on the sea front, and the people living there are beginning to leave for higher altitudes. Though there is much misery, up to the present time there have been no fatalites, except at Portica, where an old woman died, supposedly from fright. (Continued on Third Page.) POPE GREATLY DISTRESSED. Calamity of Vesuvius Makes ttis im prisonment Irksome, Rome, April 8. Pope Pius is greatly distressed by the calamity wrought by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. In talking to his secretary to-day he said: These are moments when my impris onment is irksome." His holiness personally will not be able to go to the scene, but he has sent a letter to Cardinal Prisco, archbishop of Naples, expressing his grief for the sufferers by the disaster and instruct ing him to distribute relief among them and to send to the Vatican particulars of the eruption. He also gave the apostolic benediction to the faithful. .ZVt.Tr CRUISER IIASHIXGTON. Arrives Off Rockland, Me., for Her Spep Trials. Rockland, Me., , April 8.

Had Been Out With Family to Visit Daughter Wife and Stepson Had Returned Home in Buggy Jennings Starting; Later They Upturned to Meet Him and Discovered Him Lylug ' In Road a Quarter Mile from Home With Two Bullet Wounds Coroner Mix Summoned. Suspicious circumstances surround the death by shooting last night of Joseph Jennings In East Haven. Jen nings was found by his wife at 9 o'clock last night in the road about a quarter of a mile from his home, which Is on the New Haven side of Mansfield Grove, with two bullet wounds In his body. He was very weak when found and could only gasp that he had been shot. His wife and step-son plac ed him In a buggy and carried him to their home. Dr. C- W. Holbrook was sent for, but before he could arrive Jennings was dead. The fatal bullet entered the body near the second rib on the right side. A second bullet wound was found below the ribs but this merely grazed the body- Both bullets were fired from In front. The dead man had very little money upon (his person, so that robbery could not have been the incentive. It is not known that he had any enemies. There wa3 much less cause for suicide. The stepson, whose name is Taylor, stated that Jennings owned a revolver which carried bullets of the size of those which inflicted the wounds, but tihat he did not know where it was kept. Questions put to Mrs. Jennings and Taylor brought out the fact that they and Jennings had been visiting daughter, Mrs. Charles Brockett, who lives three miles beyond. When it came time to return home and care for the live stock, Jennings sent his wife and step-son home In his buggy, saying he would come later. Mrs. Jennings and Taylor, on arriving at home, did the necessary work, tak lng care of chickens and cows. Tuen they decided to drive back and meet Jennings. They had gone but a short distance when they found him wounded and In the middle of the road- Jennings was about fifty-five years old. He was apparently well and had no enemies. Coroner Mix was notified by Dr. Hoi brook of the affair and shortly after midnight he left in a carriage with De tective Donnelly to Investigate the case. Coroner Mix and Detective Donnelly returned to police headquarters in this city at 3:30 this morning and continued the investigation there. Mrs. Jennings and the stepson, Herbert Taylor, who is about twenty-two years old, arrived a quarter of an hour later and were closeted with the coroner at once. The latter would not say anything concern ing the result of his Investigation thus far. The Jennings home Is a small house in the woods, the only light avail able being a small kerosene lamp. Such conditions were not conducive to an ex amination of witnesses In so serious a case, so he ordered Mrs. Jennings and her son to this city. The coroner would neither deny nor affirm whether any re volver had been found. ' TRIED TO SATE HER. Policeman Attempts to Catch Girl Who Jumps from Window. Pittsburg, Pa., April 8. During a fire at Grlener's bakery, No. 1433 Fifth avenue, early to-day, Miss P. C. Fitiz- gerald Jumped from a third story win dow and was probably fatally injured, She fell on Policeman Charles Hays wno tnea to save her and he was sri ously hurt. Miss Pearl Carr, another occupant, made a thrilling escape by crawling along a narrow lejge to the adjoining building with an Infant In he arms. The damage was small. ANSWER OF OPERATORS WILL BE IDE TO-DAY PRESIDENT MITCHELL IS PRE PARED FOR A COUNTER PROPOSITION. Report That They Have Decided to Ac cept Arbitration but In a Radically Different Form From That Offered by the Miners May Ask Coal Workers to Agree to the , Strike Commission Reopening the Case to Take Up Ken Differences Some Members of Latter May Not Serve if Asked. New York, April 8 Some of the members of the Shamokin scale com mittee of thirty-six, to which has been entrusted the work of conferring with the anthracite coal operators in the matter of the differences that exist be tween the mine workers and their em ployers, returned to this city to-day, and to-night they informally discussed plans for to-morrow. The remaining members of the committee will be here to-morrow in time to receive a report from its sub-committee in case the lat ter finds it necessary to submit one. The sub-committee will meet the oper ators Monday afternoon to receive the answer of the mine owners to the ar bitration proposition made by the men last week. President Mitchell and his associates now in the city have taken cognizance of the report that the operators may refuse the miners' offer and present a counter-proposition to the effect that a board of arbitration be appointed ao as certain if there are any new questions on which the mine owners and the men differ. The union leaders have been looking into this phase of the question and are preparing to meet such a coun ter-propositlon, If made. The miners claim there are many new grievances which arose out of the award of the anthracite coal-strike commission, and which have not been settled to the satisfaction of the men. It is quite- certain, however, that the miners' committee will insist upon a settlement of old grievances, along with any that may be found to be new. No Information was obtainable to day to accurately indicate what stand the operators will take to-morrow. It is known they have carefully gone over the arbitration plan proposed by Mr. Mitchell, and it is said they have decid ed to accept arbitration, but In a radi cally different form from that offered by the miners. That the operators will ask the coal workers to agree upon the strike commission to reopen the cast or take up new differences is not Improb able. If the commission is again askPd to take up the dispute it Is not likely that all the members will consent to serve. SUNDAY ELECTIONS IN MOSCOW. Culmination of a Veritable Whirlwind Campaign. Moscow, April 8. The Moscow mu nicipal eloctjon, held to-day, was the culmination of a veritable whirlwind canvass. The result Is not yet known, as the votes will not be counted until to-morrow. 'Last night meetings were held in all the available public halls and in the streets. The best orators of the constitutional , democrats, including Professor Paul M. Miliukoff, M. Hessen and others, came from St. Petersburg and hundreds of speeches were made, The Octoberlsts made a fervid appeal to the voters not to choose constitu tional democrats, a majority for whom, they declared, would mean the ruin and division of Russia. The vote to-day was the heaviest ever cast here. Up to 3 o'clock over 30,000 of the 50,000 regis tered electors had voted. There was much excitement at many polling places, orators making speeches throughout the day. The monarchist workers, pointing to the crosses on the churches, appealed to the voters not to convert the churches into' synagogues by electing Judophiles. Many women peddled tickets. The constitutional democrats appear ed to have the better of It in the voting and claim a victory, but the Octoberlsts and conservatives made a desperate fight.

Beeson, of the Meridian college, prevented the lynch ing of a negro who shot Branscombe Farmer, a street-car conductor, early this morning.

Deposed "First Apostle" Called a Spendthrift, Liar and Traitor None Show More Approval of the Denun ciation than Mrs. Dowle Six Thou- 1 i sand Promise to Stand by Vollva Dowle Will Arrive "Home" To-day. Zlon City, 111., April 8. With the ap proval of thousand of Dowieltes In open meeting to day, General Overseer Glenn Vollva denounced John Alexan der Dowle as a spendthrift, liar and traitor and was in turn promised sup port as leader of the Christian Catholic church of Zlon to fill the place of the founder of the otiurch now deposed and on his way from Mexico to fight for whata he considers his rights. When after denouncing Dowle, Over seer Vollva suddenly demanded a de clslon of the audience which crowded Shiloh tabernacle as two who should be their future leader, the 6,000 persons In the auditorium rose 83 one person and signified their willingness to follow Vo llva to the end. On the platform with Voliva were Mrs. John Alexander Dowle, Judge Barnes, head of the law department of Zlon City, and Overseers Spelchcr, Ex- cell, Cantel and Granger. At the con clusion of a short prayer the new lead er of Zlon, clad in a robe of simple wbite and black, an, decided departure from the gaudy raiment assumed by the first apostle ori similar occasions, stepped to the front of the platform and in a slow, calm and studied volets made the announcement that he was going to take advantage of to-day's meeting "to toll a few trutita about the man whom they had so faithfully fol lowed for several years." Vollva then told the audience of tho "deplorable'' conditions he found at Zion City when he arrived a month ago from Australia and took up the man agement of Zlon's interests at Dowie's command. The speaker did not mince words but spoke bluntly of the "perfidy of John Alexander Dowie." when most bitter in the denuncia tion of Kris former master there was no one lnthe tabernacle who showed more (Continued, on Third Page.)

WILDEST HOPES OF LIBERALS REALIZED TREMENDOUS VICTORY OVER OTHER PARTIES IN RUSSIAN ELECTIONS. Constitutional Democrats and Other Progresslvists Prnetlenlly Every where Successful So Far as Known Now Not a Single Reactionary Can didate litis Pulled Through Another Crisis Confronts Government Czar Must Issue Constitution or Disperse Parliament as Soon as It Convenes. St. Petersburg, April 8. The elector al colleges in twenty-eight out of the fifty-one provinces in European Russia to-day elected 178 members to the na tional parliament about one-third of its entiie membership and returns re ceived up to midnight indicate that the wildest hopes of the liberals have been realized, the constitutional democrats and other progressivists practically everywhere having gained a tremen dous victory over the Octoberlsts and other conservative parties. As far as is ascertained not a single reactionary candidate pulled through, and nowhere did even the' Octoberlsts score a tri umph. The majorities obtained by the radicals clinch the character of the vic tory. From the Volga to the frontier of Poland and from the still Icebound coast of Archangel to the Black sea the story is substantially the same. One of the astonishing, as well as hopeful signs for' the future is too character of many of the peasants elected. Before the electoral college began to elect the members alloted a province the peasants separately chose one of their number as a candidate. This provision was designed to appease the peasants and also was regarded by the government as insuring a conser vative nucleus; but this calculation has been sadly upsets for In almost every Instance the peasants elected not only were progressive but the most highly educated among their class, the major ity of tJiem at least having a high school education. A peasant In Sim- brisk named Aliadln was educated In England. , Zn the Volga district and the central provinces where famine and agrarian disorders have been the greatest the peasarit vote was most radical. In Sa mara by a vote of 86. to 8 they chose M. Guttandonta, a socialist, while the members elected by the college were a doctor, four zemstvolsts and five pro gressive peaEants. In far-away Ufa, the border territory, the Orenburg Cossacks returned a solid progressive delegation consisting of four Russians and six Mussulmans. Tho effect of the revolutionary out breaks at Sebastopol was reflected In the results In Taurida,' which Includes the whole of the Crimea, where the peasants chose a social revolutionist. In the province of Grodno, In the Jewish pale, a solid progressive dele gation was chosen, Including among It being two Jews. Tver, where Governor-General Slept, zoff was assassinated Saturday, - was swept by the constitutional democrats by an overwhelming majority. Ivan Petrunkovltch, the leader of the con stitutional democrats, and against whom the opposition was concentrated, and MM. Rodlcheff and Kuzmlnkara VlefE were triumphantly elected. Among other prominent persons elect ed are Prince Balataltoff, the well known zemstvolst worker of Simbrlck; Prince Shakeffsky of Yaroslav, and Pro fessor Maxlmkovolsky of Khrakoff. While no definite results of the mu nicipal elections held to-day are known they seem also everywhere to have gone In favor of the progressives. In Minsk province the radical Russians and Jews and Poles formed a coalition and decided to put up a joint ticket comprised of four Jews, two Poles and .one Russian. To-day's results prove beyond ques tion that the calculations of the gov ernment have been rudely upset and baUt the opposition elements will con trol the national parliament by a deci sive majority. Premier Witte's ef forts to induce Emperor Nicholas to proclaim a constitution should now be greatly reinforced. Another crisis confronted the govern ment, for the sweeping character of their victory undoubtedly will encour age the liberals to push the government to the wall, and It would seem that the emperor must yield to the entreat ies of those who counsel a final surren der by issuing a constitution to Wie people or dispersing the national parlia ment as soon ns it assembles. There seems no alternative except the choice of one of these two courses. RUSSIAN L.OAN ARRANGED. French Financiers Again Give Credit to Their Country's Attorney. St Petersburg, April 8.

WORTHY OF IMITATION. Innovations in American Courts Recom mended for Germany. Berlin, April 8. Judge Adolf Hart mann of Berlin, who was the German representative at the St. Louis con gress of lawyers and who spent fifteen months traveling in the United States in order to study court proceedings and American legal Institutions, has just published an exhaustive treatise on American law wlub practical sugges tions for the reform in German court procedure which is scheduled for the next decade. Judge Hartmann says he found many innovations in the United States of which he recommends limited imitation in Germany, like conditional sentences delayed during good behav ior and children's courts. He also found that American laws sometimes anticipate ideas which German reform ers have been vainly striving to real ize. UHAKEMAN liEHEA DEP. Victim Believed to be Charles Nichols of Bridgeport.

After getting from under the lee of the Nova Scotia shore, a succession of heavy northwest squalls were encountered, as well as a heavy sea. Thursday afternoon a squall consider ably harder than the others struck the vessel and burled her to the rails. Before the helmsman could put the wheel down the vessel was too far over to right herself. One of the crew ran for an axe, but before he oould reach the weather rigging the Tuck was flat, and the masts and sails were In the water. The entire crew of six men found themselves struggling in the water, but were- greatly surprised when, as ths squall went iby, the Tuck was seen to rght herself. The men hauled them selves aboard but found ther vessel waterlogged, and they were unable to obtain either food or clothing. As the vessel was in great danger of being thrown down again by a squall, the men decided to take the long boat. In that little craft they remained for -two, days without food, water or any thing to protect them from the biting wind. Steward Wilstead, who was in the galley at the time the vessel went over, wore less clothng than any of the others. Every effort was mae by his companions to keep him alive, but he died late Frday nght, after many hours of intense suffering. Saturday afternoon the new steam 'trawler Spray, which had left Boston early in the day, sighted the survivors, The rescue was accomplished with considerable difficulty, during which Captain Milnell of the Spray was bad ly cut, Ib-ut pluckily remained at his post until all the five men and the body of the unfortunate steward were safe ly on 'board. The accident to the Tuck took place ninety miles southwest from Cape Sa ble, and from a dispatch receive here to-night from Boston, stating that the vessel had been sighted by the steam er Mystic, It is evident that the dere lict is drifting rapidly to the eastward- Coalition Programme Stands.

District Attorney Moran announced a few days ago that he had gone over the record's of the state committee, and in no place could he find any contri butions credited to either Bestgen or Proctor.

CHURCH FRIEND OF LABOR Bishop McCabe Makes Declaration Be fore Conference. New York, AprU 8. In the course of his sermon before the New York East conference in the New York Avenue M. E. church, Brooklyn, to-day, the Rev. Charles C. McCabe, D. D., presiding bishop of, the conference, referred to the attitude of the Methodist church toward labor. Telling of the building of Solomon's Temple by 80,000 men, the bishop said that 3,600 of these were overseers. "They were the right kind of walking; delegates," he said. "These men were walking delegates who saw that their companions did a proper share of their work. How would it have been had these walking delegates told the other 76,000 that If they 'did not join the union they would have no hand in rear ing the great temple"? "I received a letter this morning from a man who wanted to know whether the Methodist Episcopal church was a friend of labor. I want to answer that question fairly. We are the friends of labor of every man and woman who earns his or her living by the sweat of their faces. And any one who is not a friend of one hundred per cent, of the working people is not a friend of any of them. I say this for the church, be cause it has said nothing for itself." EOMBAATA EkCAPJiS.
