Fire at 8:80 last night abruptly terminated two dances in Sailer's hall building, and only , by the best1 or luck, did many persons escape t seri ous injury in the mad "rush made for the exits : when the fact that the building was ablaze' became known. Altogether there were aDout i people in the building, 200 at. the dance of the Wheeler & wnson mcs Benefit association on the first floor in Germania hall, and over ouu at the sociable of the Ivy Leaf sociable club in the main hall on the second floor. ' . . ' The fire originated In the Cloak room on the first floor, directly un der the stairs leading to the second, probably from matches in a --coat pocket. When discovered by the 'at tendant at the cloak room, Mrs. Smith, the blaze was already well un der way. Special Officer Keenan on duty at the hall sei to work .to clear the buildings and- many got safely and quietly ' before ' fright, seized the dancers. The frenzied crowd pouring from both halls met at the top of the first stairs and men and women" were thrown , violently down the stairs. Capt. Madden wa& overcome by smoke and had to be ; carried out. : The fire was subdued after . an hour's -hard fighting and the loss is estimated ' at . $1,600, : covered by in surance. Among ; the girls who lost their hats and coats were: Misses Essie and Kate Burgess, f Nellie Sul livan. Mamie .

Giovanni Glolittfc the former premier, is ' making an effort to discredit reports that he has agreed with Prince von Buelow, the German ambassador, that Italy must maintain its neutrality at all costs. To this end a letter written' by Slgnor Gdolitti to. a deputy has tbeen published here. In which the former says ,he. has known Prince von Buelow many years and has high esteem for his talents and character. He always found the dis tinguished German a friend of Italy, although, naturally, placing the inter ests of his own country .first. When the prince lived In Rome as a private' individual .the former premier says. he went to see him often. Since he has been here as ambassador -they have exchanged visits - but discussed the war only academically; - without touching upon the attitude -of Italy. In closing his letter Signor , GiOIittl says he regards war was a misfortune to be faced only when necessary for the honor or great interests of the country. . H does not consider it per missible to drag the country into war because of; setnment toward other countries. In the present condition of Europe he ibelieves it - might be possi ble for Italy to obtain enough without war. ' - GET-DIVORCE-EAST : WljNOTG IN NEVADA Feb. !

Judge Rejects Charge That Mother's Real Son Died and Infant' Was Substituted, Noting Resemblance - to Parents. London. Feb. 4 The Probate Court decided today that the son of Charles R.- Slingsby is the legitimate heir to the : $500,001) baronial propertyof the Slingsby family in -Yorkshire.1 The case has been , before the courts al most two years.' " Charles R. Slingsby, formerly r a. lieutenant in the . British navy and afterward a resident of San Francis co, is in posseession of the property Which was devised to. his offspring. When he . asked the court to confirm the succession a younger brother pro tested on the ground that the child was not a ' legitimate son, but ah in fant substituted by . the , lietenant's wife when her own child died. Since the case .has been on trial evidence has been taken in California and records produced there to prove the child the legitimate son and heir of the Slingsbys. v , ' Substitution Charge Untrue , The Probate Judge said that after an - exhaustive review of the evidence he had come to the conclusion that Mrs. Slingsby had given birth to this child or- September 1, .1910, in San Francisco, and that the -statement that 'she had put forward another child was untrue and invented 'for the purposes of the cases.- ' The 'judge in reviewing ; the case censured the manner in which: the m- quiry was handled, and depositions taken in San Francisco, and he laid emphasis upon his impression of the utter unreliability, of the - witnesses opposing the claim ,of the Infant Slingsby. , -.; ; -v ' . ' The Judge declared: ' i "There is another matter in " this case which is conclusive. I have watched the little boy in court, and I have been much impressed with the extraordiainry likeness of- the. boy to Mrs. Slingsby. Moreover ( It is dif? f icult to speak of Mr. Slingsby in his presence), but he "has a full, round face and a peculiarly shaped jaw,, and the boy is a counterpart of his father in these respects. I felt so strongly on these matters that I called in a personal friend, a well-known artist. Sir George Frampton. I did hot tell him my view. I merely asked him to come into court .and. watch. , ... '. Artist Notes Hesemblance . .' -.- "Sir George immediately noted the extarodinary' resemblance of the boy to his father. , -i "The mother .was not' present that day,", the Judge continued. "Sir George said he would like to see her, as he had noticed an odd shape of the boy's left ear, which did hot resemble that of his father. Accordingly Mrs. Slingsby was brought to - my room and introduced to the artist, who im mediately observed the extraordinary similarity between, the left ear of the mother and the left ear of1 the son. So far as I know the child could not have these pecularities . unless they were congenital." Regarding the San Francisco des positions the judge said: "It is impos sible not to be struck with the fact that we have very unscrupulous peo ple to deal with in this case." - . t "' Mother An American. " : San . Francisco, Feb. 4 Lieutenant Charles Henry Reynard Slingsby, for merly of the British., Navy, married an , American girl, Dorothy .Cutler Morgan.. The couple lived for some years on the Pacific coast Teddy Slingsby, ' their son, today declared heir to the Slingsby fortune, was' born here in the fall of 1910. Three years latere it became known that the birth certificate had - been altered at the direction of the board to read: ("Paul Colvln, father?, Lillian Anderson, mother." ' At the same time there came Into evidence an advertisement Inserted in a San Francisco morning newspaper within a few days of the time of the birth, and purporting to be, in the handwriting of Mrs. Slingsby calling for a new-born male infantv THOMAS TELLS WILSON RAILROADS ARE GAINING Chicago, Feb. 4 That Israel San- dock was a remarkable dresser was justified from', his ' petition In bank ruptcy, filed 'today in the Federal Court.

Thomas of the Lehigh Valley Rail-, road told . President Wilson yesterday business conditions showed ! an im provement ; and that- the railroads were gaining from an increase in traffic -' The roads needed less regu lation, he told the President.. - V. ; "When I say' the railroad ' with which i I am connected made 25,000 reports last year , to the: Interstate commerce commission and - different commissions and boards in the three States through which it runs, you will see what I mean by the need for less regulation," Thomas said. "We need constructive legislation." The proposed , amendment to the Hepburn law, prohibiting railroads from owning stock in coal companies, Thomas told - the President, was a measure which would greatly hurt some railroads. , Thomas said his road and others had plans for extensions and improve ments, but were waiting to get money. The increased freight rates granted recently had helped, he said, but other assistance was needed. : : ff. STEEEIj PMMT BT3BNED. .
