No. li. 4 DIE III FIRE Blaze Follows Explosion While Victims Are At tempting to Get Truck Out of Hay-Filled Room, TOURIST, WHO TRIES TO RESCUE, OVERCOME Dead Are Julius Campre d o n, Henry Chambon, Jose Crespin and Cornelio Crespin; Loss Is Heavy, Kpecinl In The Journal j Socorro, X. M.. Nov. 10. Four j r.re dead and a fifth may have lout his life in a fire today thiit de stroyed tho largo storage barn of the Chambon estate, near the heart of the city shortly after noon to day. The dead are: JULIUS CAMPREDON, manager of the estate and former county commissioner and . county treas urer. HENRY CHAMBON, nephew of Campredon. JOSE CRESPIN, an employee of the estate. CORNELIO CRESPIN. son of Jose Crespin. The fire was discovered during the noon hour, while the large barn, in which was stored 500 tons of huy was entirely deserted. Ju lius Campredon rushed into the barn accompanied by the Crispins, and made an effort to drive out a large truck which was heavily loaded with baled hay. When the men entered, the flames were con fined to one corner of the barn, but apparently an explosion oc curred, as the- whole structure burst into flames. Julius Campredon appeared near the door of the barn, his clothing in flames, and fell to the floor. A tourist, whose name has not been learned, dashed into the barn and tied a rope around Campredon and dragged him out. Ho was dead when he reached the outside. His clothing wau . burned from his body, which was badly charred. Nothing more was seen of the Cresplns. It is believed that young , Chambon went to his uncle's res ' cue, and was caught in the flames. Some persona thought they saw - hint -ctawL-through a window, and others say they saw him rush in t'trough the front door. The tour ist, who was overcome with smoke, stated when ho was able to talk, that ho was within a few feet of young Chambon when ho was Criven out by the flames. A fifth man, whose identity lias not been established, is believed to have been caught in the flames. Several theories are advanced as to the cause of the fire. Ono is spontaneous combustion in the new hay. Another is that a camp fire in the rear of the barn may have burned through tho wall. Ashes and a hole in wall were discov ered. The explosion may have been caused by dynamite stored in the barn and belonging to the state highway department, though high way officials say a check of their materials Bhows that nothing ot the kind was in the structure. An other theory is that the gasoline in the truck was exploded, by the heat. Still another theory is that the fumes from the gasoline had filled the structure and the sparks ignited them. A large barn belonging to the Winkler rooming house was de stroyed, together with an automo bile and other property. The loss has not been estimated, hut will run into many thousands. Besides the hay, several wagons belonging to the highway depart ment were burned. The fire was still burning last night, but was un der control. The buildings were located about a block from the large Chambon mercantile store. Jose Crespin, one of the men Who lost his life, only a few min utes before the fire, had Just drawn $100 from the bank with which he Intended to send his wife, who is ill to the hospital in Socorro. He went directly from the bank to the ham and shortly afterwards was dead. , Henry Chambon was 22 years of age. Both he and his uncle were unmarried.

Washington, Nov. 10. On the faco of practically complete but unofficial returns from Tuesday's elections, the exact line-up by par ties in tho Sixty-eighth congress will be: lTniise Retmblloans, 225: dem ocrats, 207; socialist, 1; independ-j elit, 1 : farmer-labor, 1. j Senate Republicans, tu; dem ocrats, 42; farmer-labor, 1. Tho republican total in the sen ate is predicated upon a victory for that party in tho senatorial contest in North Dakota. Should final returns show the election of K. T. O'Connor, the democratic candidate, tho republicans would huve 52 ami the democrats, 4 3. in tho present senate the republi cans have 60 members and the democrats 36,,, a republican ma jority of 24. In the house the republicans, on the basis of the unofficial return:?, will have a majority of 10 over the combined strength which could be mustered, against them by the democrats and others, and a plu rality of 1 8 over tho democrats as a party unit. In the present house tho republicans huvo a majority of 165 over all, and a plurality of 166 over the democrats. ! Besides these changes, all of which will become effective after J tho Sixty-seventh congress expires! on March 4, next, there will be some immedlalo shifts in the to- j tals through the filling of vacuu-; cios at Tuesday's elections. There, were eight vacancies in the prcs-, ent house, duo to deaths and reals-; nations, and the unofficial returns, show that of these eight teats, 1 lie republicans captured six the Sixth California, lllinois-at-large. tho Sixteenth Massachusetts, the First and Sixth Nebraska, and the Eleventh Pennsylvania while democratic nominees won In the Third North Carolina and Seventh Tennessee. There were no upsets, in tho result, although the seat of former Representative Reavis, re-1 publican, First Nebraska district, went to R. H. Thorpe, republican, i for tho remainder of the present term, while John H. Morchead, democrat, will represent the dis trict In the next congress. Filling of tho vacancies will make the house line up at the start for the forthcoming special session on November 20, 302 re publicans, 132 democrats and one socialist. Dupont May Be Seated.

S Shipments of Cattle From This State Go Across Border Accompanied Only by Foremen. The meeting of the livestock and Agricultural Loan company of New Mexico and the New Mexico Loan agency, which was to have been held here yesterday, was post poned until today because of the absence from the city of officials of the loan company, who were on the border superintending the shipment of cattle to Mexico. The following dispatch from El Paso gives information regarding the shipment: El Paso, Tex.. Nov. 10. Four teen hundred head of cattle, the first of probably as many as 70,000 to be shipped into northern Mex ico to pasture lands, crossed the border at Columbus, N. M.. today. Movement of cattle from the drouth stricken ranges of the southwest will be the largest made since the days of the early west, El Paso cattle men say. Forty thousand head of cattle will bo shipped or driven to the Santa Barbara ranch owned by William Randolph Hearst, which is west of the Corralitos ranch, where the first 1,400 head are consigned, it is said. The two ranches have a total of about 1.500,000 acres, but both are already partially stocked. W. 1). Murray of Silver City, N. M., representing the Agricultural and Livestock Loan company of Albuquerque, said shipments made to California and other states to pasture will also reduce the total to bo taken to Mexico, which has been given at as high as 160,000 head. W. R. Morley, of Magdalena, N. M. and C. E. Bigelow, of Albuquer que, wee here today with Mr. Murray closing up deals for the Mexican land. They, represent the Albuquerque company, which is under tho wnr finance corporation. Bccatiso of protest that followed the report that many American cowboys will he taken to Mexico with the cattle, only American foremen will be taken and Mexican cowboys employed, it was said. Few cattle will be shipped out north of Clovis and Albuquerque. Shipments will come chiefly from the lower Rio Grande valley, south central New Mexico and tho Pecos valley west of the river. Because of the shortage of stock cars on all railroads running into El Paso, as many of the cattle as can stand driving will bii driven across. Most of the eattlei will be unloaded at coiumpus.

Mr. Hull said that the president "presumably acted on the advice of men like Daugherty and I-asker." and has decided to "flaunt public sentiment by nsking a repudiated congress to sanction repudiated measures and policies." The administration, Mr. Hull continued, should "preserve the true spirit of parliamentary gov ernment" by asking adoption of a legislative program, which, he said should Include defeat of the mer chant marine legislation, repeal of the Fordney-McCninbor tariff bill.

For the first time in more than four By Increasing Their Propor tion in the House, Minor ity Members Enjoy Great er Privileges. Washington, Nov. 10. By cut ting down the republican majority in the house, the democrats hi tho next congress will obtain larger representation on all of the big committees by which the most im portant legislation is framed. Lead ers of both parties began figur ing today on tho new alignment. As it now stands, the ways and means committee, which reported the revenue, tariff and bonus bills, consists of 25 members, 17 repub licans and eight democrats. As the line-up is determined by the size of the house majority, democrats, It was stated, will insist upon a division of 14 to 11. Retirement of Chairman Fordney means that Representative Greene. Towa, rank ing republican, will become chair man, under the seniority rule sys tem. Because of the large number of sub-committees which prepare the supply, bills, the appropriations committee, consisting of 23 repub licans and 12 democrats, is ex pected to stand at about that ratio. But all committees now composed of 15 republicans and six demo crats, probably will go on a 1 2 to 9 footing. The rules committee, all powerful of itself, generally stands 8 to 4, regardless of the majority. Defeat of Cnarman Volstead of the Judiciary committee will make Representative Graham, Pennsyl vania .chairman. AU bills relating to prohibition are considered hy the judieiaity commttee. Mr. Graham was among the few members who refused to vote one way or the other when the Volstead" measure was put up for passage some years ago. Representative Grist, Pennsyl vania, stands in line for chairman of the postoffice committee In place of Chairman Steencrson, de feated. Only two big committee chnlrmen wero defeated Volstead and Steencrson and both come from Minnesota. Under the seniority system, Rep resentative Snell, New York, will be head of the rules committee, succeeding Chairman Campbell, defeated in the Kansas primary. ,I. A. II. FOrXPF.Ii 1)KAI.

The nressiiiiEr nt" svcrnl imnnrinni it, v revision proposals in the Sixty ! eighth congress was forecast today jby some leaders ot the "Progres sive" republicans and tho demo crats on the basis of the sharp J changes in tho size- of the major- Hies and minorities in the house and senate us a result of Tuesday's1 elections. 'ihey suld revision ; propositions would como from both' the majority and minority sides. Chief among the tax plans of. the republican "progressives" is a-n ; impost on the undistributed sur-! Pluses of corporations, affecting also stock dividends. Such n lav' 'also is favored by the democrats, in the view of Representative Oldfieldl of Arkansas, the minority "whip.": Mr. Oldfleld expressed the opin- ion tnat the democrats would fa vor re-enactment of the excess profits tax; but in a modified form; Increased inheritance taxes on a graduated scale, and the im position of a gift tax in an effon to reach those of wealth seeking to avoid the payment of high sur taxes through gifts of money to relatives. Theso faxes have been opposed heretofore by administration offi cers who have made it plain that they have not now in mind any general revision of the existing rev enue law-, which was enacted late last year and which became gen erally effective last January 1. Proponents of the proposed changes expressed confidence to day, however, that with the change in the house membership In the new congress, they would have more than an even chance of suc cess. "Progressive" republican leaders, in their estimates of strength, count on almost solid democratic support for their pro posals and likewise the democrats look to the left wing of the ma jority purty for support of their program.
