STREETCAR TICKETS 10 Moscow,May 31^The disaster on the^Khodijnskoje plain yesterday Is con^^stantly gaining In proportion as the^Investigation continues. Many addi^^tional deaths of the injured who were^carried away are occurring, which aire^only added to the enumeration after^some time. It Is now said that the fa^^talities will amount to between 2.000^and 3,000. An official statement this^morning places the. number of dead^recovered at 1,338, and the seriously^Injured at 286. But In contrast with^the official statement, there are 1,282^corpses lying this afternoon at t h ^^cemetery, besides the many dead and^dying that are known to have been re^^moved from the Ill-fated field by^friends. Lastevening, after receiving deputa^^tions, the czar and czarina attended^and danced at the brilliant ball at the^French embassy. Preparations had^been made on the most elaborate scale^for this ball, and It Is asserted that^$70,000 was expended on the supper^alone. The csarina was not Informed^yesterday of the disaster owing to her^delicate condition. While the dance^In the French embassy continued amid^all the accompaniments of luxury and^gaiety, disconsolate friends and rela^^tives wandered over the desolate plain^among the dead, the suffering and the^dying, looking, often In vain, for toe^missing. To-daya requiem mass was MM In^the chapel of the Kremlin, which the^czar and the czarina and all the mem^^bers of the imperial family attended.^The city is filled to-day with grief-^stricken crowds. It Is a striking evi^^dence of the vast multitude who took^part In yesterday's fetes, that there^were large numbers who were totally^unaware of toe number'of lives tnat^had been crushed out among them, and^who proceeded with their merrymaking^throughout the day without having^grasped the fearful proportions of th^^disaster. The work of identification Is^most difficult, both on account of sjfle^large number of victims and the tram^^pled, torn and mutilated condition, of^many of toe corpses. The majority of^the killed were peasants from outlying^places. Allday yesterday the full force of^police and firemen worked among the^dead, pulling bodies from heaps of the^killed and Injured and ranging them^on the ground, which was covered for^hundreds of yards, with groups of 10^and 20 begrimed and disfigured corpses,^among which the agonized friends of^the missing wandered in a painful ef^^fort to identify them. The work of^carrying the bodies to the cemetery,^where it Is Intended to Inter those who^fall of Identification, continued all^night and day. Thismorning the forces at work on^the plain discovered the mouth of a^disused well In the middle of the field,^| the plank covering of which had given^way In the mad rush. In the well there^were 30 bodies and wedged In among^them and held down by their weight^were found two me,n alive and evident^^ly unhurt physically. Hut the terror^and the hideous surroundings of the^night had proved too great a strain on^their minds and they were raving ma^^niacs. There are many incidents of^special pathos, one case being that of^a pnrty of 55 humble peasants who had^oome together from a single village for^the merrymaking at the czar's feast.^Of this party 53 were killed. Variousversions as to the origin of^the stampede and crush are current,^but the account to which the most^credence is attached is that the wagons^laden with the 500,000 souvenirs which I-.. - wereto be distributed among the peo- i It I V P II A \ h H A R RflR^pie were proceeding to Khodijnskoje 111 ^ Ul\ rlLMJ Hr\l\U\Jl\^plain, followed by a multitude of eager^peasants, when the attendants, with a^view to pleasing the people, threw a^number of the souvenirs among the^crowd. There was a wild scramble to^^wards the point where they fell and^the news spread like wildfire up and^down the throngs of expectant peas^^ants that the distribution had com^^menced. This resulted In a headlong,^pellmell rush for the booths where the^distribution of souvenirs was to have^been made later. The arrangements^which it was intended to make to keep^the crowd in order during the distribu^^tion not being completed at that early^hour, the foce on hand waa powerless^to stem the tide of the crush of human^^ity. What added greatly to the disas^^ter was the fact that these booths were^surrounded by ditches. The foremost^person In the Incoming crowds fell^prostrate in these ditches and the peo^^ple following them spesdily trampled^them to death. Others stumbled over^their bodies and met the same fate.^And so the horror grew. There were^no English people or Americans among^the victims. HverywhereIn the city are excited^groups of people discussing the disas^^ter, the significant proportions of^which all have aj last come to realize.^The streets present some saddening^contrasts In the coronation decorations,^very few of which have been removed,^and the gaily dressed populace who,^having escatied with their friends, con^^tinue their holiday merriment, while^' every few yards men arc carrying cof^^fins on their shoulders. The police and^a force of soldiers with fixed bayonets^! have been keeping order all the day^at the cemetery, where an unending^stream of people have 1.. -n passing all^day. All day there were most affecting^scenes, relatives and priests praying^! here and there Inside the dead ranrred^upon the grass surrounded by still^larger numbers of the unidentified^dead. People came on the ground look^^ing for missing one*, only to find other^relatives engaged in dressing the bod^^ies of the loat. while others were sit- I^tine, sobbing and eppar^ntly helpless |^btside their dead.
