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.

Leader of the Socialist Party
Makes His First Public
Speech Since His Release
From Prison
Chicago, Nov. 26. (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.
"I spok3 at Canton from a deep
sense of conviction, and, after all,
ten years have very modest sense
for having an opinion of your own
in the United States."
Ignoring the fight of the social
istic party leaders against the I. NV.
V communism and the Russia
soviet government, Debs, declared
himself a citizen of the world and
embraced all three In tho ranks of
"the defenders of free speech."
"Out ot trio war," he said, "one
great good came, quite unexpecteJ
to the ruling classes ot the world.
That was the soviet republic."
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. He attacked
"governm-nt by injunction" and
said that if ho had been in Chicago
when the recent rail strike Injunc

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, .

PRE-WAR CATTLE TRADE
Orsk, Russia, Nov. 20. Efforts

as 30.000 head of stock, cows,
steers horses and sheep, and the
entire country was given over to

But today these herds have been
so reduced that the owner who has
even a hundred head considers
himself fortunate. The Orsk tan
neries, In the old days, used to turn
out hundreds of thousands of hides
annually, but this industry today

3 REVERSALS
Harvard's Comeback After
Being Defeated by Brown
and Princeton Is the Most
Conspicuous
New York. Nov. 26 thy the As
sociated Prt-SK). Three startling
reversals in form stood out today
in an analysis of Saturday's grid
iron events, as the climax to a sea
son already conspicuous for its up
sets in the dope.
Harvard, coming back brilliant
ly after reverses at the hands of
Brown und Princeton, otit-gen-e.-Mleil
Its traditional rival. Vale to
I A . i 3 uf.nr the P.llle had
been established generally tis a
favorite.
Less prominent but equally s
sensational wero tho victories of
Detroit university over Washington
and .lefferson, 20 to 9, avid Dart
mouth over Brown. 7 to 0, at Bos
ton. VV. and J., regarded as one of
the strongest elevens In the east,
outplayed Detroit in nearly every
department of the game, only to
lose as tlle alert westerners profit
ed by intercepted forward passes
and fumbles.
Two other outstanding games in
the east camo close to increasing
the list ot upsets. Army the fa
vorite, struggled desperately in the
last quarter to snatch victory from
the Navy, 17 to 14, on Franklin
field, Philadelphia, while La Fay
ette, beaten but once since late in
tho fall ot 1920, met unexpected
opposition from its traditional
rival, Lehigh, and won by the slim
margin of a field goal.
The Harvard-Vale and Army.
Navy games, two of the cast's
greatest gridiron spectacles added
new glory,, from a playing stand
point, to the traditions surrounding
them. Both were spectacularly
fought, thrilling contests with
triumph for tho crimson and the
gray due largely to tho superior
field tactics
Harvard, as had been expected,
was outrushed bv Tale almost two
to one.' The Blue also uncovered
the most clever aerial attack of Its
history, but when within scoring
reach of the Crfmson goal. Its
punch" failed. Once, in the first
period, Harvard checked Tale's
rush within five yards of Its goal.
On the other hand. Harvard, dis
playing Princeton's characteristics,
soized its opportunity. Halfback
Owen -islng to heights of fame in
the first period by scooping up a
Yale punt and racing 47 yards to
Eli's three-yard line, from where,
a few moments later, he dove over
for a touchdown. Field goals by
O'Hearn, for Yale, In the second
quarter, and rtnffman, for Har
vard. In the final period, completed
the scoring,
ArWg victory over Navy came
after a slashing see-saw encounter
in which George Smythe, cadet
quarterback, furnished the out
standing Indlidual achievement
with a 50-yard run In the final
quarter that paed the way for the
winnlnr touchdown. Navy, which
outrushed the Army more than
two to one, took the lead In the
flnnl period, to w-ifi after the navy
had again forged to the front.

HOLDING UP WELL

Out in Month of October
New York. 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.
In otton, a government report
of November 3 4 places the total at
Hint date at 8,S70,Ooo balest. wliic.lt

as, a result of this conclusion th"
market was forced to absorb a.
largo volume of liquidation which
originated in speculative quartern
and tho prlnetpat futures fell below
25 cents. 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

a tendency In some quarters to re
