CRIB FIRE DEATH LIST MAY REACH A TOTAL OF ONEJUHO According to Latest Figures 175 Men Were at Work When the Powder Exploded. CRIMINAL SUIT PROBABLY FOLLOWS Effort Will be Made to Aiurtaln Who Was at Fault and the City Officials to Blame Will Face the Court. Chicago, Jan. 21. President D'An cirea, of the Sewer and Tunnel Miners' association, expressed the fear today that the death list in tho fire which destroyed an Intermediary water sup ply crib a mile and a half from the shore In Lake Michigan, may reach 3 00. He said there were 17i men working in the crib and gave the opinion that probably many of them were at the bottom, of the lake and their bodies would never be recov ered. Tho organization will investi gate. The possibility that the death list may reach 60 is expressed by the loroner. There are 47 bodies at the morgue, which corresponds with the number reported missing by the Jackson Construction company, which had charge of the work at the crib. But the company's payroll Is incomplete and inquiries have been received for many whoso names are pot on the roll but who are said by relatives to have been wcrklng at tho crib. Of the 3!l injured who were rescued yesterday, 13 remain at the hospital today. The condition of five of them is serious. The hodlrs of the dead are unrec rgnizable because burned and black tneu Dy the names, in many cases portions of the bodies are missing. What remains of the bodies ore en cased in sacks nt the morgue and it has been decided to hold one big fun eral and bury them all together. The responsibility for the accident nt the crib Is being shifted from one municipal department to another but it Is certain that criminal prosecution will follow and tin effort be made to determine who is responsible for the accident. Among the charges made by the survivors are the following: very little fire apparatus was kepi on hand. The fire extinguishers about the place were useless. The dynamite was carelessly hand led anil on several occasions explo sions were narrowly averted. The building was poorly construct ed and was a veritable fire trap. The only method of escape In case of fire was an aerial tramway which rallied but a few persons and was slow iti action. Efforts were resumed at daybreak tn ascertain whether anv men were still living in the tunnel beneath the crib. All the air pumps have been kept working and it Is believed that some of the men will be found alive. Ocorgo W. Jackson, of the con struction company which built th l ih. Informed the coroner today that I would be impossible to give the complete list of dead for several days.

In making timber sales the forest service seeks small In preference to large tales, and aims to safeguard a Mipply for futur needs rather than to swell the Immediate receipts. Were It desired, the present receipts from titnbr sales could be quickly doubled. Ituring the year it was found neces sary In the interest of a continued supply to restrict sales on many for ests.

ANDREWS IS APPEALING FOR 1ST LIBERAL The Statehood Bill Is Before Republican iMembers of the House Committee. FAVORABLE REPORT TO BEMADE MONDAY There Is No Opposition In the House and Probably None In the Senate Worth Men tioning. Washington, Jan. 21. As the day for tho introduction of the statehood bill to admit New Mexico and Ari zona approaches, the sentiment In favor of Immediate admission grow. It Is believed that there will be ab solutely no opposition In the House and that any opposition In the Senate In the past will not have the effect it haa had when previous statehood bills were mentioned. The statehood bKl was ready to re port to tho House today, but Delegate Andrews spent the day with Repub lican members of the committee, lighting for tho most liberal bill pos sible. There is a disposition vtn the part of some members of the com mittee to cut down the provisions of the bill, and the nemoeratlc mem bers would undoubtedly light -it if It granted too much to New Mexico. CHhvrwtee there is no contention and tho IlepubMean members will be ready to report the bill to the full committee tomorrow. This will ne- celtute a delay in reporting to the uou. e. as ine iienvxTjtrr ember f the- CfWimlttee will want' to" go over the bill carefully.

Speaker Cannon has -withdrawn ull objections and la now willing that the bills may be reported to, and passed by, tho H um This Is an Important gain of Itself for the territories. Chairman Hamilton of the House committee on territories, has been willing to reiHirt the bills to the House for some time, and has only been waiting till certain objections had been withdrawn, so that when the bills were reported they would go through practically unanimously and without Incurring any opposition. It Is believed that this time, hut now ar- rived. The former serious opposition in tho Senate Is rapidly disappearing, and It 1s believed that when it comes to action there that it will be report- ed out of the Senate committee nnjtl,e plan una securing support for h. territories, und ikiss tho Senate by practically an unanimous vote.

Gray Proposes Gi gantic Plan ;to the New Mexico Law Makers. INITIAL COST WILL BE SMALL He Plans to Support Institution With Endowments and Will Make New Mexico the Center of Education for Women. To establish a national university for women, modeled on Old worid In stitutions and which shall be the cen ter of education for women in th United States, Is the gigantic plan of Hev. E. Mcguccn Gray, of Carlsbad, who is spending the day in Albuquer que, and whose bill for the establish ment of , the university has already ben Introduced in the legislature at Santa Fe. Tho plan ut first amazed and then pleased th various legisla tors to whom it was explained, and Hev. Gray today says that ho ia sure of the active support and votes of a nuntber of 'prominent members of the Council and House, as well as the support of various luads of the ter ritory, Including Governor Curry. ,. An appropriation of J 10,000 Is aked of the legislature. This ia in tended merely as a fund for starting the project. Rev.. Gray believes that once it Is established he will "bo able ( to secure the eupport of prominent men and women throughout the na- tion and the university will bo endow- ; euiflclenUy within a short time to : enable Hini -hk.l jernent of thu in. structora and the equipment of the university for all purposes. Some of the reasons advanced by ii-ev. uray are mat there Is not a similar institution in the world and "constantly growing; Xew Mexico Is j tn'- b st location because of climate . an,i surroundings, possesses sufficient ' railroads to nmke in easily reached ' f rom "' Prt of the country nnd Is romoved from women's seminaries, u, university there; co-education hus i "1"t proven a success because, the i courses of study are nrranged for the needs Hf men and women are not given on equal chance; the school for women existing now do not us a usual thing pay attention to the needs or women who are forced t.j enter business to live. The university Is to be modeled on universities of the Old World, and Hev. Gray says that section three of his bill suniis up the who'e obJe:t. It Is to he a teaching and examining organisation, not a boarding school. Such colleges a3 may be desired cuu bo established In proximity for the care of .students, ond these must con form to certain rules and regulations. Hut the university itself will be de- voted to teac hing and inrt to the du- tics which the usual university In tho . Uniti d Stales undertaes. Hecause of the support prom'sed him,. Hev.
