From the twelve coaches were coming the joyous cries of a thousand rooters for Purdue, clad In gay dress with colors streaming, while In the front coach sat twenty great muscular fellows trainee! to the hour, on whom the hopes of a TWENTY PERSONS PERISH IN EARLY MORNING EIRE New York, November 1.— Fire early this morning destroyed the flve-story brick tenement building at 426 Eleventh avenue. Ten bodies have already been taken from the debris and it is estimated that there are a number of others. The place where the Are originated is called the “den of many nations.” At 3:15 o'clock seventeen bodies tiad been recovered, most of them being Ital ians. They died from suffocation. Among the number were several women and children. The Are is supposed to have been of incendiary origin, and although it burned but a short time, the smoko was so dense that whole families were overcome. On the fifth floor eight bodies were found dead. The stairway leading to this had been burned away. In the dense darkness a panic prevailed among the tenements of the house, many of whom evidently had fallen over the fur niture In their apartments and met their death by suffocation. Police Commissioner Green was on the scene and the police reserves were called out, together with ambulances from mnay hospitals. The police and firemen succeeded in rescuing many of the wo men and children who had been over come In the desperate rush to the street. It is now known that twenty persons have perished. DEMOCRATS HAVE LITTLE BEST OF IT IN NEW YORK New York, October 31.—Three days be fore the municipal election of 1903, well informed men on either side of the strug gle find themselves unable to predict the result of Tuesday's election. It seems probable that the election will be very close, and that a few thousand votes will decide w'hether Seth Low or George B. McClellan will be at the head of the city’s government for the next two years. William S. Devery, who is running in dependently, is not regarded seriously as a candidate. Tonight the campaign prac tically closed with a hundred or more po litical meetings on either side. All the leaders today issued estimates of large majorities for their tickets, Charles F. Murphy claiming the election of the democratic ticket by 100,000; M. Lynn Bruce and R. Fulton Cutting de claring that Low would be elected by about 32,000, as many as in 1901, or more. EvenDevery said his election is cer tain. The existence of wholesale colonization in a number of assembly districts in Manhattan and the Bronx was revealed today by the examination of more than 1000 witnesses, who were summoned to various police stations on subpoenas is sued by State Superintendent of Election Morgan. From the testimony of these witnesses It appeared that the illegal registration amounted to several hun dred. No less than 360 cnses were S i coveted in the fifteenth assembly dis trict alone, in which six hundred wit nesses were examined by one of the su perintendent's deputies. The unusual step of summoning ill nesses for examination in several houses was taken In accordance with a plan ar ranged by Superintendent Morgan and Police Commossioner Green. The assembly districts concerned are almost wholly in the poorer districts in the east and west sides of the city, in which men can easily rent rooms for a short time without exciting suspicion. In nearly all instances the witnesses testified that the persons suspected did not live in the houses from which they were reg istered. Arrests will follow the attempt to vote of any of the persons accused. Looks Like McClellan. New York. October 31.—The Brooklyn Daily Eagle's canvass of the probable vote in Greater New York in the coming election, based upon returns received from about 25,000 voters, indicate that McClellan will carry the city by about 48.919 plurality. In Manhattan and the Bronx, and in Queens his pluralities are forecasted at 49.H43 and 1492 respectively, while Iiow, it is indicated, will carry Brooklyn by a plurality of 1349 and Rich mond by 861. Devery’s vote, according to the Eagle’s figures, will be 13,720, of which nearly all will come from Manhattan. ROOSEVELT CALLS FOR GENERAL THANKSGIVING Washington, October 31.—The President today issued his annual Thanksgiving proclamation in the following terms: By the President of the United States of America. A proclamation: The season is at hand when, accord ing to the custom of our people, it fails on the President to appoint a day of praise and thanksgiving to God. During the last year the Dord has dealt bountifully with us, giving us peace at homo and abroad, and the chance for our citizens to work for their welfare un hindered by war, famine or plague. It be hooves us not only to rejoice greatly be cause of what has been given us, but to accept it with a solemn sense of respon sibility, realizing that under heaven it rests with us ourselves to show that we are worthy to use aright what has been thus been entrusted to our care. In no other place, and at no other time has the experiment of government of the people by the people, and for the people been tried on so vast a scale as here in our country in the opening years of the twen tieth century. Failure would not only be a dreadful thing for us, but a dreadful thing for all mankind, because it would mean loss of hope for all who be lieve in the power and the righteousness of liberty. Therefore, In thanking God for the mercies extended to us in the past, we beseech Him that He may not withhold them in the future, and that our hearts may be roused to war steadfastly' for good and against all the forces of evil, public and private. We pray for strength and light, so that in the coming years we may with cleanliness, fearlessness and wisdom do our allotted work on the earth in such manner as to show that we are npt altogether unworthy of the blessings we have received. Now, therefore, I, Theodore Roosevelt, president of the United States, do hereby designate as a day of general thanksgiv ing, Thursday, the 26th day of the com ing November, and do recommend that throughout the land the people cease from their wonted occupations, and in their several places of worship render thanks unto Almighty God for his mani fold mercies. In witness whereof I have hereunto ! set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington, this, 31st day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and three, and of the independence of the United States the one hundred and twenty-eighth. THEODORE ROOSEVELT. By the President. JOHN HAY, Secretary of State. brilliant victory on the gridiron were con fidently placed. Around a curve at the Eighteenth street. Engineer W. H. Schumaker found directly in front of him the freight engine and coal cars moving slowly from a switch lead ing to a gravel pit. He reversed his en gine and jumped. The crash hurled the passenger engine and three front coaches against the steel freight cars loaded with coal that plough ed their way through and buried under a pile of wreckage weighing many tons fully sixty human beings. The first car in which were the players was completely demolished. The second coach, containing the band of musicians, was partly telescoped, while the third coach was overturned and hurled down a fifteen-foot embankment. The other coaches did not leave the track. College President Aboard. President Stone of the university, with his family, was in the fifth coach and was not injured. Immediately after tho shock, the passengers, men and women, began the frantic work of tearing away the wreckage and pulling out dead and dying classmates and fraternity broth ers. The young women dressed in bright colors for the holiday, performed heroic work. Though the bodies were in sev eral instances horribly mangled, one com pletely and one partially beheaded, they took up on their laps the heads of the dying and injured, and soothed their sufferings as best they could until the surgeons arrived. Their blood-stained and grimy garments were gloomy wit nesses of their heroism. A general alarm was sent out, and phy sicians came from every direction to the scene, a distance of three miles. They came in every kind of vehicle, private and public, and even delivery wagons were sent to carry away the dead and injured. While these were being carried to the morgues and hospitals, the work ofi tearing away the wreck and rescuing these pinned beneath went on, hig muscu lar students wept aloud as they stood over the bodies of their dead friends and felftw workers, or gazed helplessly upon the remains of their college mates. To add . to the horror of the scene, the wreckage caught afire, but the flames were extinguished by the students after a hatd fight. The injured are in at least twenty cases ,in very serious condition. A dozen or imV-e have broken bones, and in several cases there are compound frac tures <y two and even three limbs. The death %st is expected to grow considera bly. \ Two the injured died after being taken ti the hospitals. While ^he work of rescue was going on \ there arrived in the city over 900 cheering followers of the red and white of Indiana university at Bloomington. Banners waved, college yells were being hurled from the windows and streamers were displayed from the windows of the car* bearing the university football team. As the happy students poured from the train, news of the tragedy to the black and gold of Purdue was received. Instantly all was sadness and sympathy. The throng melted into sorrowing groups that separated to search for the morgue and hospitals for friends or took cars for the scene of the wreck to give any possible aid. No Colors Are Displayed. All day the streets have been filled with silently moving hands of students. But no color were displayed. They were pinned beneath coats or quietly put away. No music sounded from the bands that came to help celebrate. This evening bore them back, leaving behind the dead and injured. Surgeons are still working over the in jured. It 1b believed the death list will be swelled to twenty. President Stone of Purdue has estab lished headquarters here and is answer ing hundreds of anxious inquiries from all parts of the country. The work of getting the home addresses of the in jured is difficult, as the only record Is the university register at Lafayette. After the announcement of the aban donment of the game today, it was sug gested that the money collected on ad vance sale be given to families of the In jured who happen to be in need. Gov ernor Durbin started a subscription. The governor and other state officials hur ried to the wreck this morning and have been busy all day assisting in the relief. President Bryan of Indiana university has also been helping. Purdue officials announced this afternoon that the uni versity would engage in no games this year. Superintendent VanWyek of the Big Four said this evening he had no time to investigate, as his time had been de voted to hi Iping the Injured. Both en gineers say they had the right of track and knew nothing of the other train. The coal cut was backing northward to a | company switch. C. A. Paquette, superintendent of the I Chicago division of the Big Four railroad, and General Superintendent VanWyek of the company have been busy all day help ing care for the injured. Mr. VanWyek said tonight: “We have not yet had time to investi gate the cause of the wreck. This will be done tomorrow or Monday by Mr. Pa quette.” SEWANEE CRUSHES AUBURN IN OVER WHELMING DEFEAT SEWANEE FOOTBALL TEAM. At No Time Did the Once Famous Orange and Blue Striped Tigers Have a Ghost of a Show and Werer Tossed About Like Chaff Before a Wind—The Expected Reversal of Form Did Not Materialize, and if Anything Auburn Was Weaker Than Ever. Montgomery, October 81.—(Special.)— 8ewanee had an "easy thing” In Auburn today. By the one-sided score of 47 to 0. one of the feature football games of the south went to the mountaineers. The once powerful and stalwart Auburn tigers were as babies in the line against their opponents. They never .even car ried the ball sufficiently, near to their opponents’ goal to m«ike the game inter esting. On the other hand, It is mooted question if Sewanee could not have made the score greater had they desired. The wearers of the purple went Into the game with the 1 Intention o£ preventing a score by U ’ !r antago nists and they found their game an easy one. The locaUsupporters of ihe Auburn squad had hoped for a score against Se wanee by virtue of the hard work <lone by the Auburn team since their unex pected defeat by Tuscaloosa a week ago. This work did not count for anything to day, ahd really the team seemed weaker than when they met the Alabamians. The reversal of form predicted never came into evidence. Sewanee Played Snappy. Sewanee, on the other hand, played snappy, fast ball. They practically kept control of the ball throughout the game. When they needed a gain It was secured, and whenever they charged their oppo nents. apparently It was a weak point. Phillips, the Idg Sewanee guard, was the star of the game. He scored more gains for his team than was made by all his opponents. The Auburn boys could do nothing with him. Whenever he hit the Alahamn line there was a break, nnd only onee during the game did his opponents hold him from a gain. Shaffer, half-back for Sewanee, also played a brilliant game, as did Colmore and the two Klrhy-Smiths. Auburn had two stars, Captain Paterson and Allison. They were equal to their opponents in every play, but unfortunately for Au burn there was no others like Ihem. The detail of the game Is uninteresting. Details of the Game. Sewanee kicked off, and securing the ball on a fumble, scored a touchdown hy fierce line bucking within the first five minutes of play. Colmore failed to kick goal, the only failure of the eight op portunities presented. Auburn then took a strong brace, and for fifteen minutes they played their op ponents to a standstill. Finally securing the ball, Sewanee hpgan to send Phillips against the line, and It was rare when he failed to get a live-yard gain. The first half ended 23 to 0, and In the second 24 mor" points were piled up. Phil lips making seven of the touchdowns. There was a fair crowd In attendance, about 1100.

Cambridge, Maas., October 31.—In an Intensely exciting and sensational foot ball game, Harvard defeated the Car lisle Indians today, 12 to 11. The, closeness of the score was made possible by one of the most unique tricks tried on a football field for many years. Dillon at tho start of the second halt received the Harvard kickoff on his five yard line, and then hiding the ball un der his Jersey behind his buck, ran the length of the lield empty handed for a touchdown. There Is apparently no rule covering this trick, so tho play stood. Yale 25, Columbia 0. New York, October 31.—With the score nothing to nothing at the end of tho first half, Columbia's eleven was crush ed beneath the irresistible attack of Yale at the I’olo grounds this afternoon, and was defeated by a score of 25 to 0. Endurance was the quality that won for Yale. Her men from start to finish showed no let up in the magnificent at tack that sent Columbia a badly beaten team off tho field. In the first half Co lumbia held Yale to no score. That ef fort taxed all her power and when the second half opened Hlie was already beat en for lark of strength. Time after time the Columbia players were unable to rise after a play and very often they were laid out with injuries, Princeton 44, Cornell 0. Princeton. N. J.. October 31.—Princeton defeated Cornell today 44 to 0. Princeton gained at will through the center of the line and seldom failed to work end runs for substantial gains. Cornell was help less when she tiad the ball, and succeeded in retaining It only until the second down. During the first of the game. Cornell gained her downs hut five times, while Princeton was held for downs twice In the second half, the task was still easy for Princeton. Tennessee 10, Nashville 0. Nashville.

BITTER FIGHT ENDS IN ■ _ Campaign Comes to Close After Some Strenuous M TO ELECT LULL STATE TICKET No Contest Was Ever So Full of Pen sonalities as the One Just Closed In What Was Said About Hanna and Johnson. Cincinnati. October 31.—The campaign* in Ohio practically closed tonight with rallies everywhere. The election Tuesday is for a full state ticket and members of the legislature that selects the successor of Senator Hanna. For the first time in Ohio the parties have had nominees for senator. The republican state conventions of 1896 and 1901 endorsed Foraker for senator and those of 1897 and 1903 endorsed Han na for senator. The republicans in Ohio never endorsed any one for senator at their state convention prior to Foraker and Hanna, and the democrats never ob served this rule until at their state con vention last August, when John H. Clarkti of Cleveland was endorsed. Thus two opposing candidates for sen ator canvassed the state for the first time. Previously, when Foraker or Han na was the republican senatorial candi date, it was not known who would bo the opponent of either when it camo to election in the legislature. The fight in Ohio has predominated over state affairs. Clarke’s Eloquence Powerful. John H. Clarke has been known for years as an orator and his eloquent ad dresses have been directed against Sena tor Hanna, while Mayor Tom L. Johnson, the democratic candidate f ** governor, and other democratic speakers have also made lianna the target of their attacks. Senator Hanna aimed his phillipics at Mayor Johnson more than at his sen atorial opponent. Johnson was charged with being the real candidate for senator as well as for governor, and prospectively a can didate for the democratic nomination for President next year. lie is mayor of Cleveland, and has also secured tho county offices in Cuyahoga county. Tho members of the last legislature in both branches from Cuyahoga county, were democrats, and the hottest fight in tho stale this year has been for the four senators and ten representatives from Cuyahoga county, which, in the event of a close contest, might determine the sen a tors hip. Full of Personalities. No campaign was ever bo full of person alities as the one Just closed. In what was said about Hanna on the one side, and about Johnson on the other. rolonel Myron T. Herrick, the republi can candidate for governor, has never be fore been a candidate for public office. The republicans have had may promi nent speakers, Including senators and con gressmen from other states on the stump in Ohio hut no unusual interest was man ifested except at the meetings of Ilanna, who has been a greater drawing card than ever before. With the exception of Bryan, the dem ocrats have had very f* w prominent men on the stump. The Indications are that Johnson will get most of the senatorial vote, which was over 17.noo last year, but it Is very doubtful If the whole of that vote would equal his democratic losses. All predictions are that the republicans will elect their state ticket by a large plu rality and the only claims of the demo crats are for the legislature. It Is held by the democrats that the republicans might elect their state ticket by 50,000 plu rality, and yet lose the legislature at Cleveland, where the candidates for gov ernor and senator live. The result is in doubt at Toledo, where Mayor Samuel Jones is supporting Johnson/and at Co lumbus where factional tights prevail. These three places alone elect twenty flvo members of the legislature, and if the democrats carry all of these doubt ful places, they would have grounds for their claims that "Hanna will be beat en. Chairman Salen Confident. Cleveland, ().. qptober 31 Charles I\ Salen, chairman of the democratic stale executive committee, tonight Isused the following sttaement: "At the close or the (create-.! campaign ever wage,I by the democratic pariy of Ohio Ihe Issnes which Mayor Johnson »re nlr ! aar° «"n"<4er and the force, sup porting them more det<rmlned. and better sees,han it *ny •» Those republican voters who reran* dtlzenshlp above party and who rfvolt HZalnst political commercialism will east heir vote, for the democratic nominee, throughout the state. “ lu the contest for governor Mr John '™ has the Apposition of the •hoodies' of his own party. Johnson's vote will show ' (tain In every county of Ohio. I believe that he will be elected.” KENTUCKY CAMPAIGN ALSO COMES TO A CLOSE. Louisville October 31.-A flying trip from Covington Into Louisville with numerous speeches en route brought to a close the campaign of Governor J. C W Beckham for re-,-lection. His opponent! Col. Morris Belknap, who Is a wealthy Louisville business man, and a Spanish war veteran, wound up his seven weeks work by a speech at the Auditorium to. night.
