D., suf fering from tuberculosis, In tho excite ment following the flre, dropped dead in the street, but was not a guest of tile hotel, and there is no connection except the shock through excitement. PHOENIX, May 17.—Early this morning the employes of the Hotel Adams daahed through the corridors shouting to the 100 sleepers the information that the house was on fire. The guests grabbed what per sonal effpets they dared to take time for and escaped from the hotel scant ily clad. Elevators and stairways were choked by flame and smoke and nearly all of them escaped by ladders, emergency devices and other sensational means of departure. No lives are thought lost. Before the conflagration was repulsed the hotel was destroyed and contigu ous property damaged. The loss is Mtlmated at a quarter of a million dollars—the hardest blow that Phoenix has ever suffered. One-half the loss is covered by Insurance. The Hotel Adams was the largest and best In the city and was regarded almost as a public utility. It being a central r>"int rendezvous for the polit ical, commercial and sociu.l life of the city. There was no wind: that Is believed to have been the only thiug that pre vented the destruction of the entire business district. Heroic deed.l; of rescuers and spnsa tional escapes from death marked the disaster. ■AVBU GOVERNOR'S DAI'OHTKIt The 9-year-old daughter of Governor Sloan was saved by Xight Clerk Henry "Willey, who, after rousing the sleepers on all four floods, with the aid of a bellboy, fought his way through the smoke and llame with the little girl in his- arms. Governor Sloan and his wife escaped by a ladder. The flre started from an unknown cause in the hotel near the office. It gained such headway that the build ing was soon a roaring furnace. The flames spread in all directions and the flre department abandoned all at tempts to save the hotel and bent their efforts to checking the spread. Build ings In the vicinity wer<! blown up by dynamite. Structures near Central avenue and Adams street caught fire and were saved only by the herculean work of the firemen. Tenants of nearly all houses in the vicinity gathered up their personal ef fects and fled. The postoffiee, half a block north, and intervening property were saved by a brick wall of the hotel, which remained standing until the fire was extinguished. Then it fell, crushing the realty office of Greeno & Griffin. A standing wall at the other end of the hotel, blown by dynamite, demol ished the Utley building, from which thousands of dollars' worth of auto mobile stock had been removed; NO DKATIIS REI'OKTKI) There Is believed to have been no loss of life, but the fact baa not been definitely established, as the hotel reg ister was destroyed. There were about 150 persons in the building. By means of lists made from memory by the management seventy-one persons have been accounted for. J. M. Jamison, a resident guest, dropped to the glass roof of the hotel lobby and caught in his arms a woman employe of the hotel. Dropping from an adjoining window, both escaped down an outside stairway. Scores had narrow escapes, and few were attired in anything more than night clothes, some saving their grips. Half of the guests had close calls, ns the elevator and stairway were both in the center of the building and were near the fire. Nearly all came down ladders. J. C. Adams, owner, announces ho will build a new hotel. The building cost $140,000. TROOPS EXCHANGE SHOTS WITH STRIKING WORKMEN HANNIBAL, May 17.—Aside from oc casional Jeers and drunken shouts by striking workmen of the Atlas-Portland Cement company, order appears to have been restored at Ilasco today. The presence of state troops has helped the situation, though an out- Invak is considered possible by Col. C. C. McDonald, in command. Company A or St. Louis this after noon drove thirty-five of the strikers away from a saloon, while the saloon keeper, R. Jemmy, and his bartender were placed under arrest for violation of the closing orders. Strikers today fired from ambush on the troops guarding the dynamite store houses.

WITNESS ADMITS FAKE POOL RACES Man Serving a Sentence at San Quentin Declares Flannery Ignorant of Swindle SAN RAFAEL* May 17.—The prose cution's case in the trial of Harry P. Flannery, former president of the police commission of San Francisco, accused of grand larceny, was con cluded early in the afternoon session of Judge Lennon"s court here today, and most of the afternoon was devoted to the examination of witnesses called by the defense. It was announced tonight that Flan nery will take the stand in his own behalf tomorrow morning, and it is expected all the testimony, except that in rebuttal, will be in by noon tomor row. William yMacSherry, the member of the Sausalito pool room gang who pleaded guilty two weeks ago to a grand larceny charge, and who is now serving a sentence of a year in San Quentin prison, admitted he had made ail the arrangements in Sausalito for the operation of a fake pool room in tl.at city, but declared that Flannery had known nothing about the plans. McSherry asserted that Joseph Ab bott, who gave damaging testimony against Flannery, had admitted to him that he had lied in doing so to save himself from prison, and that Sheriff Taylor of Marin county was a party to a conspiracy to "railroad" Flannery to the penitentiary. Mac Sherry also said that Abbott had been drunk while in the San Rafael jail, and that it was while drunk that he was "persuaded to turn informer." Mac Sherry, who was brought from San Quentln to testify, put himself In contempt of court by refusing to an swer a question put to him on cross examination, after he had been in structed by Judge Lennon to do so. The court threatened to assess punish ment for this act, and asked that Warden Hoyle of San Quentin be present in court tomorrow with Mac- Sherry. The prosecution established through Chief of Police John Martin ol San Francisco that Flannery had sug gested John L,. Farrell be made a da» tective, but had done nothing toward securing his assignment to the "bunko detail." Captain of Detectives Wall of San Francisco declared that some time be fore he was appointed to the head of the detective department Flannery had asked him what he knew about Farrell, md said he wanted him put with some good detective.

CLAIMS $1,500,000 LOST THROUGH COTTON FRAUD Bankrupts Alleged to Have Used Bogus Bills of Lading to Get Money NEW YORK, May 17.—A receiver's complaint filed in the federal courts in New York today seta forth what pur ports to be details of one of the recent so-called cotton bills of lading frauds through which firms in this country and abroad are said to have lost mil lions. In this instance alone the receiver es timates that cotton operators in the United States, Germany, France, Spain and Russia were out from $1,000,000 to $1,500,000. The defunct firm involved is Steele, Miller & Co. of Corinth, Miss., thrown into voluntary bankruptcy May 6. G. A. E. Pyle was appointed receiver, and he now directs proceedings against Stephen M. Wells & Co., cotton brokers of this city, and against the New York Dock company, to whom he alleges fraudulent preferential payments have been made.

EARTH AND COMET WILL MEET TODAY Effect on World to Be Same as an Elephant Running Into a Spider's Web The 25,000,000-mile tail of Halley's comet will be about 2,000,000 miles' from the earth when The Herald read ers get up this morning, provided, of course, they do not remain In bed too long. If they are late sleepers the comet with be fifty miles nearer each second they Bleep, but astronomers in all parts of the world declared last night that it was probable that few phenomena of interest to the layman would be observed. Some time today or tonight the earth will pass through several million miles of the tail. The exact hour at which the heavenly vagabond will wrap its fluffy appendage about the planet is a question on which astronomers make different guesses. Those at the Car negie observatory have fixed the start- Ing of the heavenly collision at 1 o'clock this afternoon and figuring the rate at which the two bodies are mov ing at fifty miles an hour they have decided that by midnight the wanderer will have unwound itself from about our planet. Observers at Columbia university have decided that the aerial collision with the stellular joy rider will not begin until 11:20 o'clock to night and that it will be over before 2 o'clock tomorrow morning. Observa tions made at the Unive-sity of Cali fornia in Berkeley last night show that the transit will begin at about 5 o'clock this afternoon and last until 11 o'clock tonight. Other astronomers guess thnt the filmy tail will be met about 7:30 o'clock and that within an hour it will have Its tail clear of the earth. The most authoritative statement so far made comes from Sir Robert Ball, the royal astronomer of England, who declares that the earth will suffer from its mixup with the comet to the same extent that a charging elephant would if it ran into a spider's web. Sir Robert has made calculations which show that on May 12 the planet passed through the tati of Halley's comet and that in 1861 the earth passed through the skirts of a wanderer and that no one knew ,it. Further, he de clares that during the hundreds of millions of years the earth has been a planet comets have approached it at the rate of five a year and that hun dreds of them have wrapped their filmy flowing draperies about it without leaving a trace of it. NEW OBSERVATIONS SHOW TRANSIT IS NOW VISIBLE California Astronomers Fix from sto 11 o'clock for Passage BERKELEY, May 17.—The first part of the calculations on Halley's comet undertaken by the astronomical de partment of the University of Cali fornia at the request of the Astronom ical and Aatrophyalcal society of America was com plated teday.

Massed behind double lines of sol diers they watched with strained eyes and bowed heads the passing of th» gun carriage that bore the coffin of the monarch. In Westminster hall, where the Eng lish monarchs down to George VI gavo their coronation festivals, whera Charleg I was condemned to death, where Cromwell was saluted lord pro tector, and where George IV waa crowned, the body of Edward VII will He In state until Friday. Then it will be taken to Windsor castle, there tr> be placed temporarily in the vault be neath the floor of St. George's chapel and later in the tomb that will be pre pared in Albert memorial chapel. Brief services, attended only by th« members of the royal family, wer» conducted at Buckingham palace in the morning by the bishop of London. The, archbishop of Canterbury received the body at Westminster hall, where it waa borne on the shoulders of soldiers and placed upon the purple catafalque. A white and gold embroidered pall, with the royal ensign, covers the coffin and above all are the orb, crown and sceptre. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon the doors in the hall wero thrown open to the public. Already 50.000 people were* in line waiting for admission. They were composed mostly of the middle and working classes—men, women and children. A steady stream began pass ing through the hall at tho rate- of 6000 an hour, and at 10 o'clock tonight, when the hall was closed, there was a line extending through the streets for nearly two miles. The first intimation that the crowd, which had been waiting for hours for tlie approach of the funeral cortege, had was the booming of the first of sixty-eight minute guns, which were fired nt St. James park, followed by the tolling of "Big Ben," the great clock bell in the tower of the house of commons, which heretofore has been heard only as it struck the hours, and by the roll of muffled drums. Then a guardsman with sword re versed came down the mall at meas ured tread, two other guardsmen fol lowing close behind. Then came the officers of the headquarters staff, tho army council and the board of ad miralty. As these appeared the troops came "to a half salute with reversed guns and remained thus until Field Marshals Lord Roberts and Lord kitchener of Khartoum, the admirals of the fleet, the Indian orderly officers In black uniforms, and the aide-de camp of the late king passed. SOIJUERS* HEADS AIX BOWED "With heads bowed the soldiers kept their eyes on the ground while the body of their late king passed, coming to attention again for the royal stan dard, which was carried immediately behind the casket and in front of Kins George, who, like the officers and other members of royalty, was afoot. Tho d\ike of Cornwall and Prince Albert, two little figures in the natty uni forms of naval cadets, followed their father. King Frederick of Denmark; and King Haakon with the duke of Connaught between them came next, and then followed the other members of the British and foreign royal fam ilies in ,gorgeous uniforms, the only touch of mourning being the black bands on the sleeves of their coats. An array of officers of the late king's household, nearly all of them in bright uniforms, but a few of them in mourn ing dress, followed. The greatest interest of the crowd was aroused with the approach of the. first carriage, for in this rode the queen mother. Her majesty, wearing the deepest mourning, had lifted her veil and the people reverently raised their hats to the pathetic figure who, even in her hour of her greatest grief, acknowledged the silent testimony of sympathy by bowing repeatedly. The queen mother was accompanied by her sister, the Dowager Empress Marie of Russia, and by her daughter, the Prin cess Royal and Princess Victoria Queen Mary occupied the second state carriage, having for the occasion surrendered the first place to which, as queen, she was entitled. Her ma jesty was preceded by the sovereign's escort, the only mounted troops par ticipating with the exception of a few stationed along the route. Queen Mary was accompanied by her daughter. Princess Mary, and Prince Henry. Seven other state carriages, gold be decked and drawn by heavily capari soned horses, carried the women of the royal families and the suites of the queen mother and the queen. Arrived at the palace of Westmin ster, where a dense throng had gath ered, the gun carriage stopped, tho palls were removed and the bearer company, composed of life guard;, lifted the casket and carried it into the hall.
