lower story, was conscious for a moment,
nnd said that about 8:80 a terrible explosion
occurred on the south side of the elevator,

men at work on the seven floors of the

beyond recognition, and Harold, the third
child, has nod been found, being either
blown to atoms or cremated. All over
Toledo houses were shaken by the explo
sion as by an carthquuke. and windows
were shattered for blocks around. Very
soon afterward flames burst from all sides
of the elevator. Tt was but a few* minutes
till the fire department began the work of
rescue, which was rendered difficult by the
terrific heat of the fire. Tho river cut off
escape on one side, nnd there the flame?
gsentd to bo less tierce.
The families of a dozen men who were
known to he at work within rushed to the
scene, and women calling for their im
prisoned husbands, lirothers and fathers,
made a scene indescribable.
It was learned that a force of twenty men
had been In the building, their purpose
having l>een to load 80,000 bushels of grain
during the night. No one of the entire
number could be seen in any part of the
building, nnd lt was impossible to reach
them In any way. "William Parks was
found first. He was 2" feet from the build
ing, frightfully burned, and his clothes al
most entirely torn off. He. had been hurled
from his place in the main room through a
window. Another employe, John Carr

the door. She walked down the elevation
on which the building stands and dropped
down, to be carried away unconscious.

cannot recover.
John Smith was fatally burned.
The missing man are doubtless all dead.
No trace can tie found of any of them, and
as they were employed at the top of the
elevator their chances for escape were but
The heat became so Intense that twenty
cars standing on the siding near the build
ing were added to the loss. The lire de
partment had a hard struggle to save
other elevators and property.
Mr, Paddock, a member of the firm own
ing the plant, Bald there were between
500,000 and 600,000 bushels of grain in stor
age at the time, the most of it being win

A Real Leader of Men Is Not Needed
to Do Garrison Duty in
KANSAS CITY. Sept. 20.—A spe- al to
the Star from Jacksonville, Fla.. says:
Colonel William Jennings Bryan of the
Third Nebraska Volunteers will shortly re
sign his commission In the United States
army and resume the discussion of publto
questions. Ths statement is not made on
the authority of Colonel Bryan, however,
When asked to express himself on ques
tions of public Interest, he said: "You may
say that I refuse to discuss any matters
connected wdth politics, the army or my
self, except that I see no reason to change
the views In regard to the expanding of
terltory of the United States I expressed
In my Omaha speech made before entering
upon this army life."
This was all Colonel Bryan would say,
except to add:
"You might also say that I am not so
enamored of camp life that I would at the
close of war apply for a commission In the
regular army."
The Third Nebraska Is slated for Cuba,
and unless Colonel Bryan resigns, will,
within a few weeks, go south. While he
Will not say what he Is going to do or when,
there is no question that Colonel Bryan Is
going to do something and do it soon. That
he has determined upon a course which
will require some action In the near future
means that he Is going to resign his com
mission. Issue a statement as to why he
does this, und enter the discussion of pub
lic questions on lines somewhat more ex
tended than In the past.
Colonel Bryan is looking and feeling well,
but is undoubtedly suffering from the re
straint he has placed over himself.
"If you knew." he said to a reporter for
the Star, "what lt cost me to keep still
"lien there Is so much to say about things
of importance to the people and of life
long interest and moment to me you would
appreciate the strength of my will.'
When asked If he would talk freely on
all subjects when he has broken loose, he
I "The country knows how it is when a
dam breaks; there is no telling when thet
j flood stops."
I When his candidacy for the presidential
nomination was suggested, he said:
"A man may say things and express
| opinions upon public affairs which will no:
j meet public approval. These results are
not always favorable to himself. An idea
is everything to me—far more than any
office, I shall go down to defeat wdth an
Idea as gracefully as any man you even
Colonel Bryan would not talk of the con
dition of his regiment or the possibility of
Its being mustered out, ns it has a direct
j hearing on his oplltlcal and personal af
fairs. He refused to name the date when
ho will finally announce his decision to
resign his command. He seems to have
fully made up his mind, however, to his
future course. He said:
"I shall do what I think Is right, regard
less of any temporary advantage or disad
vantage which may result from that action.
That is what a man should do. and the only
motive which shotild control his actions."

A Gay Young Man's Sorrowful
I TOLEDO, 0., Sept. 20.-(Speclal to Tho
Herald.) P. a. A. Thompson, alias E, E. *
King. ,i smooth swindler, who victimised
a number ot leading Los Angeles business
men, among them the firm of Kingaley &
Karnes, was arrested here for trying to
beat a board bill at the Jefferson House.
Thompson claims to be a newspaper man.
His scheme is to make a pretense of writ
ing up cities, firms and prominent citizens,
get them to advance sums of money and
disappear. Papers found In his room prove |
that he has been engaged in a number of 1
schemes of a speculative nature in many
cities, 11c has contracts signed for writ
ing up Los Angeles business men. Chief
Ulass of Los Angeles learned that a man 1
named L". K. King, whoso description an- 11
sweted that of Thompson, was wanted fori,"
embezzling $13t)0 from Kiugsley it Lames. |,
Thompson was fined $r,o in the police court I)
yesterday, in order to give Chief Glass aj 1
chance to get the necessary papers for tak- |'
ing him back to Los Angelese,
Thompson is a handsome young man,
about 28 years of age. He has black hair
and eyes, ruddy complexion and line ad
His Local Record
The local record of Thompson is quits a
roseate one, which is often characteristic
of a person with a champagne appetite and
a beer salary. He cume originally from
New York, but stopped at Chicago, whence
he came to this city. His relatives are
r, ported to he prominent people in the
east, and his appearance indicated this re
port. He had evidently been well brought
up, and his claims to have once been the
possessor of $3nu.ouo were accredited. He
came to l.os Angeles about a year ago and
secured employment wdth the bookbind
ing and printing firm of Kingsley, Huriics
& Neuner, on South Broadway. He was
an expert bookkeeper and made himself
a valuable employe. His principal work
consisted of collecting.
From Frank Barnes, a member of the
firm which formerly employed Thompson,
it was learned that the man's embezzle
ment. Instead of being $1600, as stated in
the dispatch, was a much smaller amount,
being between $200 and ?3(""i. Thompson
left the city on Labor Day, the fith of this
month, anil had he not been favored by
this holiday occurring at the time of the
week it did, he would not have been able
t'j secure so large a sum. Thompson col
locted various of the accounts belonging
to the firm on Saturday, the 3d, and Mon
day, tho 4th, getting in two days together.
He should have made the return on his
collections the next day, Tuesday, but in
stead of reporting for duty he left the city.
His failure to appear Tuesday morning
was thought strange, and after a little In
vestigation his operations, so Mr. Barnes
asserted, were discovered. It was also
learned thnt in addition to the bills he had
collected on Saturday and Monday he had
failed to turn In the money he had received
earlier In the month. A visit was made to
his residence, en Temple street, where It
was found that Thompson hail decamped.
Mr. Barnes states that Thompson will be
brought back here and prosecuted. Thomp
son Is said to have bilked other people In
the city. He led quite a rapid existence
for some time pre vious to his departure.

Garrison Forces
NEW YORK. Sep;. 20—A special to the
Herald from Washington says:
General Miles, when asked how many
regiments would be stationed with the vol-
unteerj at the different garrisons, replied:
"About 12,000 regulars In Cuba, 1000 in Hon
om!u, 3000 In the Philippines and 4000 In
Porto Rtco."
General Miles said he expected that Cuba
wjuld be garrisoned with about 50.000 men,
:hc Philippines with about 25.000. Porto
I Rico about 14.000, Honolulu about 4000. All
the regulate who were at Montauk Point,
with the exemption of the Twenty-fourth
Keglment, Twenty-second Cavalry nnd
Ninth Cavalry will be sent to Cuba and
Porto Rico, and the Fifth and Seventh were
ti'day added to the Eighth, and the Seventh

Fc-t Meade, have, however, been ordered
to Huntsville, Ala., whither most of the
regulars from Cuba will go. The Second
and Ninth Cavalry, now at Montauk Point,
Will go to South Dakota and Colorado.
, It is r.ot expected that the troeps will
[be ordered to Cuba before the first or middle
ol October, when the details of the evacua
tion will have taken shape and the dangers
from fever will have become less menac
ing. In addition to the Seventh Army
[Corps of about 30.000, lt Is planned that the
r?tna!r,ing six Immure regiments, also now
in this country, will go to Cuba. Four of
the Immune regiments are now In Santiago,
namely, the Second, Third, Fifth and
Ninth, the first three being white and the
Ninth colored. There are three other col
ored Immune regiments, namely, the Sev
enth. Eighth ard Tenth, now atLexlr.gton.
IV others are white, namely, the Fourth
a' Jacksonville! Sixth, at Annlston, and
First, at Galveston.
General Miles said there would be plenty
of soldiers for the program, as there were
left, he said, one hundred thousand volun
teers and 60,000 regulars. Those regulars
not need< d will he distributed at army posts.
Tie volunteers not needed will remain, If
it is needed, In the camps.
Cuban Conditions
NEW YORK, Sept. ao.-Major Benjamin
Giberga of the Cuban army, who arrived
here from Santiago on the transport Victor,
was at the headquarters of the Cuban
..Tnntu last night. Major Giberga went to
|Cuba in Apa-U last and for a short time
Served as secretary to the president of the
I Provisional government. He then joined
j General Garcia anil became his scout. Ma
jor Giberga left General Garcia on Sep
tember I, after the latter's resignation
from the Cuban army. Garcia was then
at Baire, with a few members of his staff.
Balre Is about fifty miles from Santiago, in
the Interior of the Island, and Is the town
where th" present revolution started on
February 24, 1895.
According to Major Giberga, the resig
nation of Gene ral Garcia and its accept
ance by General Gomez was a complete
surprise to the civil officers of the Cuban
republic. It was known that there was
some friction between the two officers, but
no one thought Garcia would resign from
tho army, and even if he should present
his resignation they did not believe Gom"ft
would accept it. The whole affair of the
resignation and acceptance was carried
on without the knowledge of the olvll au
thorities, as General Gomez, as oommnnel
er-ln-chlef of the army, promptly accepted
it without consulting the civil authorities.
Major Giberga was Inclined to believe that
Oarcla'o resignation would cause no dis
sension, although if it had been tendered
prior to the cessation of hostilities lt
might hnve, Injured the Cnbnn cause. In
speaking of they condition now existing In
th? Interior of the Island, the Major said:
"The Cuban soldiers are suffering for
lack of food. Before peare was declared
they oould obtain food hy foraging from
the country, but now they cannot do this.
As a reHiilt the men, who have not boon
paid since they joined the. army, are suf
fering from starvation. They havo no
money with which to purchase food and
cannot take it from the field. The troops
Should be paid off as soon as possible and
allowed to return to their homes, where
they can once more engage In peaceful
pursuits. The payment of tho troops Is,
however, a serious problem which will
have to bo solved at an early date.
"I do not believe that lt will be necessary
fcr the I'nited States to send a large army
to Cuba. In fact, I think 10,000 men would
suffice to look after the island. There Is no
danger of a contiict between tho Cubans
and Spaniards."

The contest of the evening was advertised
as a coast championship battle between

The men were In good form and a hot contest
was looked for, but there was a disappoint
ment as far as Lawler was concerned. Hi
was not In the contest, figuratively, at any
stage. Maxwell lighting him to a standstill
In almost every round. The Scotchman
surprised the crowd by his cleverness and !
hard hluing. He used both hands with]
equal effectiveness, and for thirteen rounds j

bring particularly effective. At ":hn be
ginning of the fourteenth round Lawler
Seemed to regain strength and evened mat

other out. but the bell rang with matters
In Maxwell's favor. Referee Jack Stelzner
announced Maxwell the winner, whioh de

The Duke of Tetuan Starts a New
Movement to Oust Sagasta
From Office
MADRID, Sept. 20.—The workmen of
Bllboa, where the cruisers which belonged
to Admiral Cervera's fleet were built, have
decided to go to Santandcr In order to
make a demonstration against the defeated
Stiunish admiral on his return to Spain
The government, however, has taken meas
ures to prevent the plan being carried out,
and the ministry has forbidden demonstra
tions welcoming Cervera home.
Captain General Blanco cables from Ha
vana that be is not in accord with the
Cuban colonial ministry, to which the gov
ernment hero replied that while Spanish
sovereignty existed In Cuba, he must apply
autonomy, and therefore he could not turn i
out the colonial government now In office
and appoint a new one.
The Duke of Tetuan, who was minister
of foreign affairs In the cabinet of the late
premier, Canovas del Castillo, Is quoted as
saying In an Interview:
"Senor Canovas, If he had lived, would
never have accepted war witty the United
States. Canovas and myself were con
vince I that the war would lead inevitably
to the ruin of Spain."
Continuing, the duke blamed tho Liberals,
who, he said, could havo averted war either
by accepting tho proffered good officers of
the United States minister, Gen. Stewart L.
Woodford, by treating with the Insurgents
on the basis of Cuban Independence, or by
selling Cuba.
Senor Sagasta, the Duke of Tetuan de
clared, in responsible for all our disasters,
and must be ojected from power.
