Soldiers have started the work of reacue, but their progress must neoessarily be slow because of the bloi king of the roads. Here in Naples many houses collapsed. This was due to subsidence of the earth due to the recent volcanic erupiiuis and the in habitauU of the city are in a state of panic. The disaster was due to the combina tion of torrential rains, and cloudbursts simultaueously with an outbreak of Mount Vesuvius, The coasts of tlu Island Ischida, si\ teen miles southwest of Naples, in the Ifediterraneau, wereswepl by amouu" taiuuous tidal wave. Thccxtcnt of the damage from this source cannoi be learned because of the destruction of the cable between Naples and the Island. A telegram received from the mayor of Casamicciola says that that city has been very badly damaged and that help is urgently needed. It is possible that the lossof life there may be beavy, s there are rumors that the extinct oieano Mount Epomeo is again active. The entire slopes of Mount Veauviui .rere swept by cloudbursts, and tho tbousands of tons of lava and aahefl Becumulated along the crests of the inountain since the last serious erup tion were swept down into the adjaeent. alleys, leaving death and desolatiou in their wake. Floods are reported at Catara, Amal fi. Salerno, and in other places. Th amage is estiinated in the niillians. Oaptains ol vessels that anchored in the Bay of Naples during Sunday night say there must have been a BUOtnarine earthtjuake. inasmuch as their vessels heaved violently and in several in Btanceedragged their anobors.

He realizes tbat be has a hercuh-an task on his hands, but Chance Hkes a fight as well as the next one, and is al ready planning his 1911 campaign. It b taken for granted that there will be several new hoea in the Cubs line-up next year and it is probahle tbat tbe cbanges will be most apparent in the pitchers' box. The great work of Schulte, Sbeckard and Hofman in the outfield during the aeriea with the Athletics makes this triolook good for another season, but it would surprise no one if eitherSheekard or 8chulte were passed up for a young er player. Certain it is that Chance will try out more new outfielders next year than for several years. Harry Steinfeldt will undenbtedly give way to a new man at third aud this man will in all probshility l>e Heine Zimmer man, who, in his trial at third this year, played great ball. Zimmerman fell down in his bctting in the champion ship series, but Chance still has great faith in him. If Kvers' leg recovers, little Johnny will, of course, be at second baaa again, but there is much doubt as to wbether his broken limb will ever permit him to shine as in former years. Several new men will be trained for Evers' place. Brown, Reulbach, Pfeistar and Over all are all on the downgrade, and Chance will have to work overtime to prevent a eollapse of his piHiing strength.

'rlppen's Companlon Plead* Not Guilty la Ik-lngan Asaessory A Her the Part to the Murder of Belle I. lnmre. London, Oct. 23.?Tale and tremb ling and apparently utinerved by the death sentence meted out to her com panion, Dr. H. H. Crippen, Miss l.etieve, Dr. Crippen's former steno jrapher, today pleaded not guilty in >)ld Bailey Court to the indictment harging iier with being accessory af ?er the fact in the murder of Mrs. Belle Elmore Crippen. Her trial is in the same court that found Crippen guilty, and Kings Coun sel K. 1?. Muir, who so mercilessly. prosecuted Crippen, showed in his opening statement to the court that the fair prisoner, deapite her delicate condition, neod expect little morcy from the hands of the prosecution. Miss Leneve's appearance was sueh as to excite the sympathies of the crowd that packed the court room. Her former debonair bearing has van ished, aud she answered the court's questions in a startled voico that was hardly audible ten feet away. The gist of the prosecution's argu? ment, as disclosed in Mtiir's statement, is that as Miss I/eneve was the inspira tion for Crippen's crime, she must have known of ita commission; there by becoiuing an accessory after the fact. "It is inconceivable," Muir de? clared, "that Crippen should have killed his wife in order to be free to live with the prisoner without reveal ing to her the crime." The jury retired at 3:54, and within a few minutes, il .-:.s announced to the court that an agieement had been reaehed. Three minute.: later, the jury returned to its bor, and handed the lord chief justice, its verdict. When the acquittal was announced, there was an attempt at applause in the court room, which was quielely sup pressed hy the court bailiffs. Mis.i Leneve was almost ovetOOBM with joy, and wept and lr.ughed hyster cally. Her aged father and mother were the first to reach her, and their motion was as marked as that of the girl. The jury was only 19 minutes. Im inediately after the verdiot was received the court ordered the release of Miss I. aere. In order to escape the great crowd that waited outside the Old Bailey, Miss Leneve remained in the building for nearly an hour by which time the police had sueceeded in dis persing those without. Another Strike Immlnent.i 8t. Louis. Oct. 25.?Affairs of the Missouri Pacific and Iron Mountain Railroad reaehed a crisis today. All members of the Order of Railroad Trainmen, composed of switchmen and brakemen of both passenger and freight trains, will decide by ballot within tweive hours whether they will defy the management of the roads and refuse to haul non-union men who are imported to take the places of 2,500 machinista, boilermakers, blacksmiths and sheet metal workers now on strike. Qeueral Manager A. XX. Sulliviin has issued aa ultimatuin to the union otli cials that if the men refuse to obey orders they will bo dismissed without notiee. Should the men decide to refuse to haul the strike breaker and be dis lissed for disobedieuce, it is couaidered probable that a sympathetic strike of all conductors and trainmen will be ealled._ New tJersey Haptlsts.
