DEATH TOLL IN MINE DISASTER REUS AT 7; 13 ARE irJJURED Mass Funeral For the Men Killed at Madrid Last Saturday Afternoon Will be Held This Afternoon CAUSE 0FEXPL0SI0N IS NOT DETERMINED One of the Victims Had Ar ranged to Bring His Wife and Children From Ireland Early Next Spring Special to The Journal Madrid, N. M.. Nov. 2G. Bodies of the seven minors, killed when gas ignited in tho Albuquerque and Oerrlllos mine, here Saturday af ternoon, are to be buried here Mon day afternoon at a mass funeral. Five of tho dead miners were re covered from their 4000 feet deep tomb Saturday and -the two others were recovered Sunday, following )' an ail night working of rescue crews oaiuruay iiifciu. The dead are: ALLOC BROWN, foreman, aged 35; survived by a widow and two children now in Belfast, Ireland. ROBERTO BARRKltAS, aged 44; survived by a widow and four children, FLORENCIA MARTINI, aged 4S; survived by a widow and four children. GEORGE ALEXANDER, aged 2S, survived by a widow and two children, GIL UUIKGO, 30; survived by a widow and one child. JACK O'l'KY, aged 28; single. ANDREW KLASS, aged 52; wid ower. Families of all of the dead, with the exception of Brown, lived in the mining camp of Madrid. Brown, who Is a native Scotchman, had been in America for a couple of years, working to save enough money to bring over his family. Last week he made final arrange ments for the arrival of his wife and children from Ireland In the early spring. Thirteen other miners, working in the sume mining section in the anthracite mine number four, wer.. hurried to Albuquerque and all were expected to live. Ta major ity ot them wero goveroH- burned . by the explosion and one miner was thrown against a coal car and had both hips broken. The injured men, now in Albu querque are: GriKweldo Rodri guez, Rutilo Cassias, Flnrenclo Pcrea, Thomas Knybal, Esequel Carriilo, li. II. Self, Solomon Bal donado, Daniel Garcia, Joso de Luz Campa, Soloman Narvaiz, A. G. Armijo, Juan . I'erca, Thomas Mares, Charles Liesse. The explosion, which caved in a 75-foot passage in the sixth of tho seven underground levels, was scarcely heard outside the one pas sage. Uno of the less severely wounded men managed to get to a telephone and 'called the main office before anv news of tho disaster hud reach ed tho .'surface. Rescue crews were immediately sent down and the inino ventilation restored within ten minutes after tho enll, accord ing to Superintendent lluber. The injured men wero rushed to first aid help find then sent on the mine's private ruilway to Waldo, where train No. 1 was flagged. They were all being treated In Al buquerque hospitals by 8 o'clock Saturday night. The explosion caused no panic in the community. Before fami lies of tho miners l)ad learned of the disaster, practically the men and bodies had been recovered and identified. Although news spread quickly throughout tho four mines of tho camp that there had been an accident, the majority of the mon underground kept stoically at work until quitting time when the "man car" came down for them. There was so little damage done to the mine proper that work will be resumed Tuesday morning, fol lowing the funerals. While there was a feeling of deep sympathy among the miners and officials for the bereaved fam ilies, old timers in Madrid and veterans of many other mlno disas ters, casually referred to the acci dent as "the quickest, cleanest ex plosion" they had ever ' known. Attempts were being made Sunday to determine the exact cause of the gas ignition but no theory had been substantiated. It was thought possible that a flint-like spark may have been struck, thus Ignit ing the gas. The Saturday explosion was the first disaster in Madrid since the White Ash mine explosion when ap proximately twenty men lost their lives, nearly twenty years ago.

(by the Asso ciated Press) Eugene V. Debs, leader of tho socialistic party, made his first public speech since leav ing Atlantic penitentiary here today and was given an ovation that de layed the start of his address for more than an hour. Hundreds stood outside tho hall for hours after fire guards had limited the audience to 4,000 peo ple. Jean Longuet, French socialist in whoso honor the meeting was held, was overshadowed by the demonstration accorded Dtbs. "I am Just recovering from the effects of a speech I made almost four years ago," Debs told the audience. "It was a record-making speech. I began it at Canton, Ohio and fin- ished it at Atlanta penitentiary. ' Nothing to Regret ''But there is nothing to regret. I opposed tho war and I still op pose war. "I would not go to war at the command of any capitalistic coun try on the face 'of this earth, i would have saved the lives of 60, 000 American boys who perished on the battlefields ot France to create 30,000 new millionaires in this country.

Praises Communists He praised tho lit communists including William Bros Lloyd, whose conviction under the Illinois-anti-syndicatlism law was upheld a few days ago.

ARE LIKELY TO BE ACCEDED TO Position of the United States On Turkish' Capitulation - . . Is in Line With France and England Ijausanne, Nov. 28. by the As sociated Press-. The position ot the United States on Turkish cap itulations will probably be found j to be not essentially different from the French and English positions, particularly tho French, when the time comes to discuss that deli cate topic. All the great power undoubt edly will follow America's lead in insisting that foreigners accused of crime 'shall still come to trial before foreign courts In Turkey and that foreign, or at leasSt mixed tribunals, shall have Jurisdiction In property dispute involving for eigners. It seems likely that France will propose the establishment of Juri; dlcial guarantees as a substitute fo rcapitulatlons touching on Jurl dlcial privileges elijoyed for eign residents. Franco has a large Moslem pop ulation In her North African col onics, who were loyal to France In the great war, and she had logical reasons for Inslst'ng upon equitable trw'ient . f he Mo hammedan po, ilation at this mo ment when Turkey's polMlcal stat us In the world Is definitely fixed at Lausanne. Like the United States, however, France probably will not submit to having her cit izens tried by Turkish courts, which ure essentially founded on Moslem laws. When it comes to the taxation of foreign property and the fix ing of tho customs tariff, France probably also will be found ranged beside the American position. France 'will undoubtedly propose some plan whereby foreign prop erty In Turkey will be obliged to contribute some revenue to tho Turkish state and an Impartial International examination of the Turkish customs tariff problem, like that accorded China as the outgrowth of the Washington con ference, .

Nov. 20. (by the As sociated Press) Sibils have not been wanted during the pant week that the usual November i-lacken-ing in Industrial activity is under way. Railway car loading for the week ended November 1 1 showed a further frilling oft in traffic, al though the total number of cara loaded, !)54,000 exceeds the move ment in the corresponding weeks of 1!)21 and 1920. Ono result of the Improved car situation has been further gains in soft coal production, which is well established nt a rate appreciably abovo 11,000,0111) tons a week. It is considered that the danger ot a fuel famine is past. Steel production continues t.i hold up remarkably well. The country's mills are working at a rate not far (jhort of 8 per cent f)f capacity and the trade reports that Pig Iron Prices Pig Iron prices, along with those of coal, are still tending lower, but this is merely a natural sequel to the abnormal scarcity situation produced by the strikes. Prices of finished steet snow little change. This is due largely to the fact that buyers feel apparently tlit prices may go lower. Automobile output also Is high. Some 217,000 passenger cars were turned out in October, an Unusual ly largo number for this seaspn ot the year.

Before the week closed, however, trade buying again np piared and prices rallied material ly. Wheat C.ivcs War Wheat, alter early firmness, gave way moderately, parlly In response to apprehensions lest an easing In the car situation might have an unfavorable effect on prices. I: Is realized that Inability to mors grain has been delaying market ing and that more cars are likely to mean more grain at C e central markets, with corresponding de clines In prices. Foreign buying, meanwhile, con tinues light. Corn at around "0 cents a bushel Is approximately 50 per cent abovo the price of a year ago. Banking reports confirm tbn.ft from industrial sources and point to the conclusion that tho, peak of seasonal demand has been passed. Rediscounts with the federal re serve banks fell rather sharply nn.l the reser-'o ratio of tho system an i a y-hole rose from i.i.2 pep cent to 76.7 per cent.
