' New York. March 14. Nineteen
persons dead, fifty seriously Injured, I
,sonie so seriously that they may die,
and nearly 200 persons temporarily
homeless, is in brief the story of New
York's latest fire.
The victims of the disaster were
typical East Side people. The scene
was a typical tenement,and the inci
dents attending it were in many ways
peculiar to that cosmopolitan quarter.
To the apparently reckless display
of heroism shown by firemen, police
men and volunteer rescuers is alouo
due the fact that the number of dead
is not greater.
Two hundred persons herded v in a
big five-storied double-decker tene
ment house were sleeping when the
flames from an overturned kerosene
lamp in the basement spread through
out the structure and wrapped the
entire building. in flames, almost be
fore an alarm had been sounded.
Even when the sleepers awoke at
the .first cry it was almost too late,
but hardly more than a moment was

DEPORTEQ MB WAIT
HEAYV DAMAGES IN SUIT
Denver, March 14. Six claims
have been filed against the state by
as many citizens of Colorado, who
suffered deportation at the hands of
General Sherman Bell and the militia
during the turmoil last year in the
mining camps.
They were presented to State Audi
tor Bent. Each asks for damages In
the sum of $5,000.
These claims are merely the van
guard of 250 others to be presented
by the miners who were deported un
der the despotic rule of Peabody.
The aggregate amount that the
state will be asked to pay in damages
is $1,250,000.
Affidavits are now being prepared
by the deported men, who will file
them as basis for their claims. Al
though the six, claims were filed over
a week ago, they were not made pub
lic nntll yesterday.
It has been charged that State Au
ditor A. E. Bent suppressed mem for
political ,purposes, fearing that the
publicity might Injure Peabody's
Mr. Bent, however, declared that
there had not been any disposition to
suppress them for political reasons.
In fact, he stated that he could not
see how they" could have any bearing,
necessary to show them that their
troubles had scarcely begun. The
long, narrow fire escapes wtilch ran
down the building on each of its ex
posed sides had been made the recep
tacles for rubbish of all descriptions,
and in many cases they were little
better than useless. it was also
found that every Are escape platform
on the building had in it a "blind," a
squace piece of board which fits into
the opening through which the ladder
passes in the grated floor.
The result of these obstructed es
capes was evident when it was found
that nearly all of the dead belonged
on the top floor of the building and
were roasted before they were able
to reach the; ground. Another case
of negligence which was responsible
for the loss of some lives, was an im
movable skylight at the head of the
ladder leading to the roof. Batten
ed securely and partially covered by
ice, this skylight resisted all efforts
to force it, and a pile of dead bodies
lay under it when the horror was
over.

Between Capital ancT'Labor Neville's
Response Weak Asylum Declared
in Bad Condition by Examining
Committee and Change in Manage
ment Demanded.
V. KKKK K KKKKXItRtt
Phoenix, March 14. The
house today witnessed the
most sensational encounter
that has occurred during Fho
present session of the legisla
ture. In its course Bailey ar
raigned Neville in the most
caustic manner, sparing him
at no point, and driving home
at frequent intervals thrusts
which must have penetrated
deep beneath the skin of the
Cochise member who has
made a record at the present
session as a cheap notoriety
hunter.
The encounter was brought
about by reflections cast upon
Bailey by Neville, who insinu
ated that the former was the
tool of corporations and con
trolled by them for their uses.
The response made by Neville
to Bailey's arraignment was
foreign to the subject as it
originally came up, taking me
form of an attack on the Re

can. George H. Kelly and the

Phoenix, March 14. For two hours
today the house listened to excited
repetitions of sterotyped charges by
Neville and a cool arraignment of the
latter by Bailey in a cutting answer
to insinuations cast by Neville. Bai
ley put his man on the rack and held
him up to the contempt of his col
leagues as an impostor, insincere to
his constituents, his county and to
the Democracy he posed as represent-1

to tho end of making strife between
capital and labor. In endeavor to
make reply, Neville wanderedi to

Bailey's charges of malice.

RETURNS OF OVER
MILLION DOLLARS
MADE TO SANTA FE SHIPPERS
DURING ONE FISCAL
YEAR.
Such Admission Is Secured In Kansas
Investigation Now in Progress Ef
fort Being Made to Compel Road to
Display Its Books.
Topcka, Kan., March 14. During
the year ending Jun. 30, 1902, the
Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Rail
way company paid back to shippers
the sum of 31 ,198,352. This fact was
developed In the examination of W.
J. Healy, freight auditor of the Santa
Fe, before the attorney general, who
is taking depositions In the case he
has instituted to ascertain whether
or not the Santa Fe is violating the
anti-trust law of Kansas. Mr. Healy
said that this amount constituted the
total of overcharges made for the
year. It Is the theory of the state
that these overcharges are in reality
rebates, and .that an examination of
the vouchers will show that the great
er portion of the payments have been
made to the Standard Oil company
and othc- concerns.
There Is a clash between the attor
neys for the Santa Fe and F. S.
Monett over the Introduction of the
Santa Fe's books and records as evi
dence in the suit against the Santa
Fe for violation of the anti-trust law
In the examination of W. J. Healy,
auditor of freight receipts, Mr. Monett
made a demand for the production of
certain tariff and classification sheets
in Mr. Healy's department.
Mr. Healy said it would take some
I time to get them.
Mr. Dunlap of the
Santa Fe wanted two hours to de-
'n a skirmlBh between counsel for
both sides, Mr. Monett trying ,to get
the tariff sheets and the Santa Fe's
lawyers evading.
Healy was asked about transcontl
nental freight bureau methods, but
proiessea ignorance.

(Associated Press Summary.)
By delay in pressing his
pursuit of Russia's defeated
and demoralized army to Tie
Pass, Field Marshal Oyama
has afforded General Kuropat
kin time to set out disorgan
ized units of his command and
restore his forces to a sem
blance of order. So far as
known there Is no considera
ble force of Japanese nearer
than eight miles of Tie Pass.
The council of war summon
moned by Emperor.. Nicholas
is reported to have decided
yesterday "that the war must
bo carried forward. The all
important question of financial
means, however, is said to
ihave reached no solution, the
situation, being complicated by
the reported decision of the
French capitalists not to nego
tiate the loan recently offer
ed by St, Petersburg.
n v. . n . . v. k k n k .
London, March 14. The revolt of
the French bankers is considered by
London newspapers as the most
hopeful and important news of the
day, promising an early conclusion of
peace between Russia and Japan.
Apparently the proposed loan has
not been absolutely refused, but only
"postponed." This is regarded here
as being tantamount to refusal, and
is expected to speak louder to the
Russian war party than even Kuro
patkin's reverse at Mukden.
It is the general belief that by the
death of M. Germain, late governor
of credit, Russia lost her strongest
financial friend in France, and that
had he been alive no difficulty, would
have been experienced.
i With American and English mar
kets closed to her, it is thought Rus
sia can only turn to .Germany, who 13

BBOHE TESTEHDAY AFTER IMMENSE DAMAGE
THROUGHOUT SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA-ESTIMATE
OF LOSS IS MILLION DOLLARS-LIVES LOST
Los "Angeles, March 14. Today
dawned clear and cool in Los Angeles,
and It is apparent the great storm
that has raged almost incessantly
along the southern coast for the past
forty-eight hours is over. -It has
been the most disastrous storm expe
rienced in this region in a decade.
The total damage, scattered over
a wide stretch of territory, is con
servatively estimated at an amount
in excess of a million dollars. This
includes damage to streets, build
ings, bridges and other property in
this city and along the coast.
The total fall of rain varies in the
different localities, ranging from "2
inches to 5.40 Inches.
The storm was accompanied by a
most unusual phenomena in the
shape of a strong southeastern gale,
continuous rolls of heavy thunder,
flashes of lightning and occasional
showers of hail. The wind, which
at times attained a velocity of 3
miles an hour, did Immense damage
all along the coast.
At Santa Monica the loss is esti
mated at $200,000. Two piers and one
wharf were ruined, and extensive
beach improvements in course of con
struction were pounded to pieces.
At Long Beach boats were pulled
from their moorings, driven ashore
and completely wrecked. New piers
built of stone ond concrete wore also
damaged. Loss at this port is esti
mated at $20,000.
At San Pedro the government

A NST STAIDABO 0 L
Austin, Texas, March.14. At pres
ent the Texas Legislature is undergo
ing the scrutiny of representatives of
William Randolph Hearst and Thomas
W. Lawson.
The Hearst Interests are represent
ed by C. A. Walsh of Iowa, who was
secretary of the National Democrat
ic Committee last year and one of
Hearst's men In the South.
He arrived here yesterday and at
once sent for one or two of tho
Hearst men at Washington and New
York to come here and help talk
against Standard VM. It is believed
also that they will take a hand in the
Beef Trust legislation, which the
Texas Legislature Is at present engag
ed in.
Walsh savs that Inasmuch as
Hearst was the prime mover in the
war on the Beet Trust, that he can
help the legislature out in the pres
ent crisis, but It Is learned that, while
Mr. Walsh himself mav not be the
leader, he is aware of the presence
in una cny ui ou iuuuculc ma. a
planning trouble for the Standard
Oil Company.
It Is believed In legislative circles
that the desire upon, the part ot
$12,000, and other minor losses as a
result of the storm occurred on the
shore.
Los Angeles, Cal., March 14. The
Seventh street bridge over the Los
Angeles river fell today, carrying
with it into the flood of swelled xiver.
twelve to fifteen persons, two of
whom are believed to have been
drowned. These are two unknown
men, and the bodies have been car
ried down the river.
Those who are known to have fall
en with the bridge were:
Mrs. Clara Webb, 21C East Seventh
street, rescued from the flood, but
probably fatally hurt by falling Urn
hers. D. B. Briggs, 2422 Enterprise street,
right arm crushed.
Alonzo Thomas, S2 San Julian
place, head, left hand and both knees
hurt.
Leonard Carmichael and J. Bough
man, both severely Injured.
The high water in the river had at
tracted a number of sishtseers to the
bridge; The buttresses of the bridge
had been weakened by the floods and
when the sudden swelling of the wa
ters came the supports were carried
away and the bridge collapsed.
Clifford Linthal, who was on the
bridge, said after he was rescued,
that two unknown men Had been be
hind him Just before the bridge fell.
He looked for them afterwards, but
could see nothing of them. A color
ed man reported that he saw the bod
ies of two men floating down the riv
er. The man says he attempted to
secure the bodies, but was uaable to
reach them.
IRISH LOSE VOTE
Government Policy in Reinstating
Evicted Tenants Criticised
London, March 14, Last evening's
sitting of the house of commons was
occupied by the Irish members com
plaining of undue- delay in the rein
statement of evicted tenants under
the land act of 1903.
Mr. Atkinson, attorney general for
ireiana, wno defended the work of the
estates commissioners, declared that
evicted farms unlet throughout Ire
land showed a reduction of 64 per
cent since 1S94. The commissioners
now have 41,000 acres of untenanted
land, and reinstatement would In fu
ture be much expedited.
T. W. Russell ridiculed the small
ness of the work accomplished, and
said that it was Dublin Castle that
stood in the way.
Finally Kendal O'Brien's motion,
which had started the debate and
which called for remedial measures,
was rejected, 220 to 182.
C. B. Bell, J. Pearson and C. Z.
Taylor of Douglas left yesterday for
rronteras with a large amount of sup
plies. They have taken a bond on the
Bisbee Queen property and will com
mence work on It at once. They ex
pect to be gone about six months.
Walsh and others to assist Texas in
the Beef Trust investigation is in
reality an excuse to be on the
grounds to lay wires for a big fight
on the Standard Oil Company, simi
lar If not more- vigorous, than the ono
just completed in Kansas.
That these Influences are now on
the ground and at work is evidenced
by the fact that the oil question will
not down. The pipe-line men, who
have been fighting with the oil inter
ests all along, got together last week,
and it was announced that everything
was peaceful.
This morning, however, a resolu
tion was put in the Senate and
adopted, calling on the Attorney Gen
eral to Inquire and see whether any
1 corporations (have been chartered
with privileges to produce, buy, sell,
transport and refine oil. or whether
any corporations in addition to buy
ing and transporting oil have secur
ed charters to either prouuee or re- .
