The -Fatal Disaster at Haltanoy

Causa of Men 'Work All XlEkt, nnt
Vnll to Hecover the Ilodlcn of the
Ileml llurleil Under Torn, of Culm.
Horn the Accident Occurred Scl
eral of the Workmen Injured.
MAHANOY PLANE. Pa., Nov. 6
Searching parties have failed up to this
morning to recover all of the bodies of
the unfortunates who were crushed to
dcath-in the Lawrence mines last night.
Details of the disaster obtained this morn
Ins show that four men were killed and
sceral others were Injured. They were
crushed beneath rushing culm, which had
worked its wa through crevices from the
surface and then burst the thin shell of
rock and timbers which separated -It from
the workings below. So heavy was the
f&ll and so completely did it nil the gang
way that the men were caught like rats
Jn a trap. Without a second's warning
they were hurled Into eternity, and as
jet, although as many workmen as could
crowd into that section have labored for
more than twenty-four hours, all the
bodies- have not been recovered.
The dead are: George Boxshes, of Ma
hanoy Plane; Michael Bonisky, of Malze
vilie; Joseph Boxshes. of Mahanoy Plane;
Michael Drabig, of Maizevllle.
The injured are John Curry, back and
legs bidly crushed: John Hansas, Internal
ly lnjfred and recoery doubtful.
TneoLawrence mine has been very ex
tensively worked and in consequence nu
merous rVive-lns have occurred in and
aboutrJdahanoy Plane, making large gaps
In the surface along the hills and roads
leading is Frackvllle. For some time past
the company has been running the refuse
from the mine Into these branches for
the purpose of filling them up.
Last night a large quantity of this culm
worked its way into a gangway on the
first lift, and miners were sent to remove
it. About 10 30 o'clock, without any
warning, there was a crash, and hundreds
of tons of dirt fell, completely covering
the four men and throning the others
against the Jagged sides of the gangway.
Michael Wolff, a driver, alone escaped
Injury. He was thrown by the force of
the cave-in into a mine-car which was
standing near by, and this was sent living,
along the gangway out of harm's way.
Wolff at once sent In an alarm and in a
short time a large gang of men was at
work endeavoring to sae the lives of the
miners who were Imprisoned beneath the
culm.
The men worked steadily all night, and
a relief gang was put at work this morn-

for scleral days, so heavy was the fall and '
so hazardous the undertaking of the
rescuers.
COMPLAIN ABOUT A SCHOOL.
The vnnltntlim of the Miner Hulld
lnK Belnsr Ins eatlirnied.
The question of the sanitation of the
Miner School building, which has been un
der discussion by the District authorities
for about four jears, was again brought
to the attention of the Commissioners a
few weeks ago, bj a request from the
Board of School Trustees that the building
be repaired immediately.
This building is not the propertj of the
District, but is rented from the board of
trustees of the Institution for the Educa
tion of the Colored Youth. For some time
past complaints hae beeen received from
various quarters regarding the antiquity
of the sanitary arrangements of the build
ing, and It has been charged that numer
ous cases of contagious diseases among
the pupils tan be traced to the defective
plumbing.
The request of the school trustees was
referred to the inspector of sewers for re
port, which was submitted to the Commis
sioners early In October. He stated that
the plumbing was all of an ancient variety,
and that It would cost at least 4.000 to put
the building in proper condition for the
reception of pupils.
The Institution was notified of the report
of the superintendent of sewers, and re
quested to take steps toward having the
place repaired. A letter was received from
Treasurer Bond shortly afterward, in which
It was stated that the institution did not
have funds at their command to the
amount necessary for the repair of the
building, and therefore they could not
make the alterations suggested by the Dis
trict Inspector who had visited the build
ing. The question of abandoning the building
was then called to attention of the school
authorities and the papers which bad ac
cumulated In the case were sent to the
Health Officer for his opinion of the im
mediate danger to the pupils from the pres
ent condition of the school. A report was
received yesterday from Dr. Woodwaul in
which he stated that he did not think there
was any Immediate necessity for the aban
donment of the building. There were a
cumber of defects In the plumbing, he said,
that should be attended to, but It would
not be necesasry to give up the building on
their account.
MANY HOTEL ABBIVALS.
ThroiiK" In the City Ahead of the
Uannl Time.
The winter guests of the hotels and
boarding houses are commencing to arrive
before the regular time in large numbers,
and the lobbies of the former present a
scene of activity. This season has inva
riably been dull in former years, and the
sudden appearance of the many visitors is
unusual ..and Indicates that Washington
will soon,,be. remarkably busy.,
ThehoieIkeepers -are gratified with the
sudden increase In their business, and
state hat It rooms are not engaged before
long (hey will be difficult to obtain. Tha
real ostate agants are renting numerous
desirable residences.
A manager of a leading apartment-house
said to a Times reporter today that the
city Is growing too fast for the builders.
He stated that building material has risen
la price, deferring the erection of houses
that would have been ready for occupancy
this fall.
THE DISTRICT WINS.
the Suit of Mrs. Catherine Iloth for
KlEht Thousand Dollars.
In the case of Catherine Roth against
the District of Columbia to recover JS.O00,
Justice Bradley today directed the Jury to
render a verdict for the defendant. Mrs.
Roth Is the owner of premises No 1228
Fifth Street, and conducted a grocery
store. The District authorities erected a
police station and stables adjoining her
property, and she sued for the amount
named as damages, alleging that hy the
erection of the police station and stables
her property became valueless for business
purposes and had otherwise depreciated in
value.

CASTORIA rorlcfiatxiadCh-iTa
Slow Work In the Auditor' Office of
the War Department.
For the last few months' there has bees
incessant complaint by soldiers and widows
of inability to get tbelrclaims against the
Government settled. The Secretary of
War and the Secretary of the Treasury
looked 'into the matter and found the Au
ditor's office of the War Department three
years behind In the work of many of 'its
departments. In August last the pre:sure
grew to be so great, that Secretary Root
and Treasurer Roberts asked that Auditor
Frank H. Morris, ofthe Navjr. Department,
whose office was up to date, be assigned
to duty in the Auditor's office of the War
Department. The exchange Immediately
took place.
Of course Mr. Morris "has"1 brought the
usual volley of abuse upon his head by
trying an innovatlonlrr the omce mat is.
to have the office turned Into a workshop
for seven hours every week day, instead of
headquarters for drawing pay. Interspersed
with a little work for a pastime, and a
rushing business In desk calls, hall con
sultations, and debating societies about
social, business, and family affairs.
"I expected the abuse," said Mr. Morris.
"I should be surprised It no complaint was
made against me. That Is always the way
when there Is an Innovation In an office,
and especially when the working capacity
of the clerks Is Increased. We are three
years behind In some branches of work in
this office, and there Is a reason for It. It
is urged thai r"the. force Is inadequate for
the work and would have to be greatly In
creased. I looked into the matter and
found that most of the tardiness was not
from lack of sufficient force, but from an
Indisposition to work on the part of a
large number of the clerks. With the as
sistance of Mr. Brown, chief clerk. I be
gan to gradually Increase the work of the
force.
"He made a note of the amount of work
done bv the best clerks: from this he made
an aerage amount that should be required
from each clerk. It was sucn a startling
Innovation that I lowered it several de-
grees. Tha clerks who dawdled through
their work and managed to write 45 or ou
ranis a. dav are now reoulred to write 160.
and the number will be gradually Increased.
A weman who formerly wrote on an aver
age of 23 cards now writes from 200 to
212. Others keep very much higher. There
was no reason why the clerk who now
writes 200 cards should not hae done it
before. It was simply a lack of of applica
tion to business during business hours. The
clerk who formerly managed to do any
where from 10 to 20 lines a day of schedule
work was at -first required to get through
with 43, and this Is rapidly increasing. This
aerage was gotten at Just as the other
was, and then lowered from 13 to 43 lines.
Many clerks hae done twice the work and
not complained."
"Is the movement more against women
than against men clerks?"
"In this case, yes; though an Increase In
work is also required from the male clerks.
They arc less likely to loaf and talk during
business hours than women. They depend
more on their work and less on their 'pull'
or Influence, as they call their political
backing. We hae In this office, as in all
offices under the Government, several wom
en who actually pride themselves on the
strength of their 'pull' and the weakness of
their work. Men understand better that the
work or an office has to be kept up than do
women, and as a general thing stick closer
to It. I like women. 1 think tbejiours and
pay of a Government position suits them
and I think they should have the positions
that are best adapted to them; but they
should be made to realize that only
through their work can they retain them."
"What about those who fall short?"
"Their removal is Imperative. It Is not
a mere fancy that the work be gotten up.
It is an urgent and Just demand of the
people, and one that can no longer be
ignored."
"Has the work of the clerks materially
increased since the new regime?"
"Verj materially. I am getting more
work out of ninety clerks, under the new
rule, than was formely gotten out of 300,
and not working out of hours, either. We
arc Just simply asking them to work to
their full capacity, giving the Government
the full benefit of their intellect and energy
during office hours."
"I used to believe that civil service was
the best and most Just thing, both to the
Government and the employe, but I am
more and more impressed with the Idea
that it is a poor criterion for Judg ng of a
good -clerk. He may pass high In every
branch of English, and from that stand
point be an excellent clerk, but there Is
a part that the civil service does not, can
not, look to. and that Is his capacity and
intelligence for general office work. An
other feature of civil service that stands
much In the waj of beads of department
in the progress of their work is the secure
feeling that it gives one. The clerk who
has passed high too often feels that that Is
the only requisite, and when combined
with a "pull' their removal Is Impossible.
They may have capacity for passing ex
aminations, but not for work. They may
have sufficient intelligence for the work,
and also the capacity, but it you wou'd
hunt up their previous record you wou'd
find that they never would work. There
is a lot of material of this kind in Govern
ment offices, and it ought to be gotten out.
"Take it all In all, I think the clerk does
the best who gets into office by good man
agement and hard work and who strives
every da) to make a record that will keep
him In. There are now too many old peo
ple In the offices who are conscientious
enough, but who really are unable to work.
It Is cheaper for the Government to pension
them, after they have given the best of
their lives to the service, than to allow them
to remain as an impediment to official
work."
Asked when he thought the work of the
Auditor's office would be brought up to date
Mr. Morris said he thought it would take a
year.
All of the heads of departments sustain
Auditor Morris in his steadfast decision to
have no loafing In his office, end In many
of them it has caused a small-sized revolu
tion. The women clerks, who formerly
promenaded the halls and visited outside
of every door, who found it convenient to
have a headache every day or so and lay
off from work, have begun to cast stead
fast glances about to see If authority is In
sight. There is a steady watch kept upon
their office record, not only in Auditor Mor--rls'
office, but in every department. And
the time has come in other offices, as well
as In this, when the Idler must depend more
on work and less on influence.
CHABQES OF CHTJELTY.
Alleged Keslect of Troops on the
Transport Tartar.
The Secretary of War Is daily expecting
the report of the military, board appointed
by General Shatter to enquire into the
treatment of sick soldiers on the transport
Tartar, which arrived at San Francisco
C tober 20. Press despatches from San
Francisco state that the board in Its re
port severely criticises Major Rafter, of the
Twentieth Kansas Volunteers, who; as
chief surgeon of the Twentieth, is charged
with not having properly locked after his
sick men. Forty soldiers on the ship are
said to have suffered from dysentery dur
ing the trip, and three of them, John
Fablsak, John A. Logan, of the Fourth
Cavalry, and George W. Mills, of the Twen
tieth Kansas, died a few days aft:r reach
ing land.
Colonel Ward, who is Acting Adjutant
General In the absence of General Corbin,
said the report of the board bad just beei
received, and that as the Twentieth Kan
sas had been mustered out he did not s3e
what could be done regarding Major Rat
ter's alleged neglect of duty.
General Funston was on board the Tar
tar, but simply as a passenger.

Trading was very well distributed at the

was little in general conditions over Sunday
which attracted much attention.

The stock market this morning opened
off fractionally and continued to decline
1 during the first hour steadily. This was
fhat had been .generally expected. The
very oau siaiemeui 01 mc cunuiuuu ui
the New York banks last week caused de
clines on Saturday, and It was believed
that many of the smaller traders vou!d
wish to sell out this morning also. Dur
ing the latter part of the forenoon there
was noticeable a tendency to buy stocks
at the loner prices and to support the list
against any further operations on the part
of the bears, and many believed that the
lowest prices of the day had been reached.
The careful people In the Street are still
believers in higher prices In the near fu
ture, for the very good reasons that have
been enumerated in this column hereto
fore. They know that he great financial
interests are buying stocks, and have been
buying for several months, and they judge
from this that the people that- make rrlces
are expecting a fine advance. The monej
situation does not yet, perhaps,- warrant
the leaders In forcing a boom of prices,
but the tendency from this time will be
toward Improvement, and the best advice
given Is to buy stocks carefully and with
good margins.
Leather, common, the meteor of last
week's trading, was active again this morn
ing with an opening above 36 and a quick
advance to 37. It declined from this price
to 36 again in a few minutes, and few
traders were hardy enough to pred ct
what would be Its next movement. The
preferred continued to decline to a lower
price than any reached on Saturday, and
It received very little support, apparency.
Pacific Mall was weak this morning, get
ting below 39 in the early trading. Gossip
regarding the big earnings of the com
pany and a rumor that it Is trying to se
cure control of a concern now in competi
tion with it bad no apparent effect.
The earnings of -Norfolk and Western
for the fourth week of October were of the
same highly satisfactory nature that other
recent reports have been. An increase In
gross receipts for the week of $46,000 Is
shown. The increase for the month of Oc
tober was $151,791, and the Increase for
the four months of the new fiscal year
was 1741,240. The Norfolk: and Western Is
earning at the rate of 4 per cent on the
common stock in addition to the 4 per cent
on the preferred, or, putting It the other
way, It is earning enough In three months
to pay the dividend on the preferred stock
for an entire year. The price at which
both the preferred and the common are
selling at the present time is apparently
absurd under the circumstances. The
same may be said with almost equal trut'i
regarding the Southern Railway securities.
1 ' tiO Ji
Southern Pacific was strong again this
morning and it is very evident that the
clique In the stock is not yet through with
its operations.
Manhattan tumbled somewhat rapidly
this morning to around 108, but there was
a disposition to believe that It would be
bought before the end of the day. Tomor
row's elections may put a quietus on the
Rapid Transit proposition for the present
time and this would be good for Manhat
tan. The earnings of the Brooklyn Rapid
Transit while not as large as many had
hoped to see, are certainly fairly satisfac
tory in showing a steady gain for the
month and the year to date. The Street Is
bulllshly Inclined regarding the stock.
Union Pacific, common, was strong this
morning and the Idea that this stock la to
be taken up by the bulls this week Is gain
ing ground.
The Stock Exchange will be closed to
morrow on account of election day.

OTIS' ATTITUDE CONDEMNED.
An Army OtTlcrr Saya There Will Be
.Vo Peace While. He Comanda.
A private letter received here from an
army officer la the Philippines confirms
fully all the reports la relation to the con
duct of General Otis and his administra
tion of affairs. The writer says that Gen
eral Otis, Immediately on assuming com
mand, installed himself In the governor
general's piiace and surrounded himself
with all the pomp and ceremony of Span
ish official custom.
He has maintained this policy all a'ong,
never comes out to mix with the other of
ficers, gives his orders as a military des
pot, consults with no one, knows nothin;
of the Intrigues going on around him. and
is constantly mixing up and Interfering
with racial and political condit'ons which
should' not be disturbed. He says co mat
ter what success' the army may achieve,
there will be no real peace while Otis 13
kept in command.
