Highland Light, Mass., Jan. 10-.—
The worst disaster the life guards of
the storm lashed coast of grim Cape
Cod had seen in more than a dozen
years occurred today on the treach
erous sandbars off Peaked Hills.
The surfmen stood on the beach
with their apparatus unable to render
assistance, while three caol barges
were battered to pieces and all on
board, 17 men, lost their lives in the
breakers.
The barges were the Treverton,
Corbin and Pine Forest, valued to
gether at $125,000. With the ex

Cincinnati, O., Jan. 10.—Entailing a loss of more than one million
dollars, this city sustained its second great fire within three weeks
this morning when the Chamber of Commerce building was destroyed.
A dozen firemen were Injured and others are unaccounted for. Though
members of the fire fighters' force are missing, early reports of the fa
talities among firemen and spectators caught in the wreckage of the
collapsed roof up to a late hour had not been confirmed. Whether* or
not there are bodies in the wreckage canot be definitely ascertained
tonight. There were a large numae of employes at work at the time
in the Cincinnati stock exchange and the Louisville & Nashville Rail
road office. Both offices contained valuable records which were con
sumed completely in the conflagration.
Only bare skeletons of the walls of what was pronounced to be
Cincinnati's most magnificent building remain. The building was valued
at $1,000,000 and the fixtures in the various offices were valued at $50,
000.
Fully five thousand persons were crowded directly outside the fire
lines when the roof fell In. Smoke and flying sparks completely filled
the streets for two squares and a panic followed as men and women
fought to escape. When the smoke lifted, it was found* that many had
sustained bruises and cuts. No one was seriously injured. Nearby
office buildings were turned into hospitals and shelter places.

(By Associated Press.)
Washington, D. C, Jan. 10.—Declar
ing that the fight for progressive legis
lation will go on, Representative Nor
ris of Nebraska, who led the big rules
flght in the house last March, issued
a statement today characterizing yes
terday's proceedings in the house
when Speaker Cannon's decision was
sustained as looking "very much like
a frame-up, brought about by the
speaker and his friends for vindica
tion," Norris said that in yesterday's
rule flght the republican insurgents
with a few democrats showed them
selves to be consistent, but were ap
parently overriden by the majority
combination of republicans and demo
crats. Norris added that the reforms
that insurgents instituted in the house
have not been abrogated. Norris said
that yesterday's attack on the prece
dent set last March and the various
attacks on new rules formulated at
that time including the fillibuster
against the motion to discharge the
comimittee—a rule framed by demo
crats—are typical instances of the
operation of the nous*3 machine.
"There is no doubt," said he, "that
they were inspired by a certain ring
in the house with the purpose of dis
crediting the result of the flght. of last
March."

HETTY GREEN,
WORLD'S RICHEST WOMAN.
Mrs. Hetty Green is reported to be
seriously ill and on account of her
advanced age it is not to be expected
that she will recover rapidly. She
was at one time reputed to be the
wealthiest woman in the world and
at the present time holds the repu

woman in the country. She inher
ited considerable wealth and by ju
dicious investment and careful bus

the real big fortunes in this country
of immense wealth.
Attorney Robb says: "I did not ex

of any person, but I behove that a
murder was committed. Indeed, I
am sure of it. I hastened the inquest
merely to clear the air of a lot of

OIL CASE IS
Standard Oil company of New Jersey,
with its increased capitalization ex
changed its ctock for stock of nine
teen other oil corporations, which
controlled in turn a great many more
such corporations. It is claimed that
this amalgamation resulted in a
monopoly. In support of its case,
the government will claim that fol
lowing the action of the court in the
Northern Securities case it must dis
solve the Standard Oil company of
New Jersey as a holding company
suppressing competition. In urging
upon the court the proposition that
the Standard Oil is fonopoiizing, the
government will argue that the evi
dence must be considered by a court,
of price cutting to drive competitors
out of business, rebating and preying
on competitors by secret organiza

DROP PROSECUTION OF
DEFENDANTS.
Only One Case Will Be Continued—
That of Architect Joseph Huston,
Who Is Under Sentence and Who

—Restitution Will Be Forthcoming.
(By Associated Press.)
Harrisburg, Pa., Jan. 10.—Restitu
tion to the amount of $1,300,000 and
the surrender of warrant aggregating
$200,000 upon which payment had
been stopped, were made in Dauphin
county court today by men convicted
or otherwise implicated by the state
of Pennsylvania in the capitol frauds.
The comonwealth agreed to drop all
criminal action against the defendants
with the exception of the case of
Architect Joseph M. Huston, who is
under sentence and who has an ap
peal in the superior court. Thus ends
one of the most important criminal
prosecutions ever brought by the
state and which has stirred Penn
sylvania from end to end. The new
state capitol, a magnificent structure,
with its rich furnishings, cost approxi
mately $13,000,000. Of this sum the
state alleged that it had been defraud
ed out of about $5,000,000.

he had made some report to the coast
