"&ILER'S HALL 1TBB.
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

Ex-Premier of Italy .
Denies Neutrality Talk
Rome, Feb. 4. 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. ' -

SLINGSBY CHILD, AMERICAN
GIRL'S SON DECLARED HEIR .
1 TO $500,000 IN ENGLAND
, ' i ; i r i i i !
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
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." -
