RIPLEY RAPS T.R.; SAYS INSURGENTS ARE DESTRUCTIVE Santa Fe Executive Hopes Next President of U. S. Will Not Be Progressive E. P. RSpley, president or the Sanla Pc, who spent yesterday In Los An geles en route-: in his winter homo In Santa Barbara, hopes that the next Sent of the United States will not be . "progressive." Wiiil. gh vi.v Indlrei t expression to that fervent hope, Mr, Riplej called the Insurgeni element in both the pal - tics by quite a. different name. ■■[ call them 'destructive,' " he said. "The ppople who are boasting of the so-called progress In government, th«? people who aru behind thi new move ment in both parties', are destruction- Ists nothing else. "Their work is not building up. riut tearing down. W< are struggling un der .1 burden of too much legislation of all kinds, bid particularly ol tin so called progressive stamp. ' Mr. Ripley had just finished hia Chrlptmas Bhop(ping In Loa Angeles All afternoon he had trudged around with his son, Frederick <'. Ripley, ol the oil department of tho Santa F<\ buying presents to delight the heart of his little grandson, who is with his private car party, and for his daugh ter, Mrs. Nelson Willard; Mrs. Ripley ;uiii others, tt had been a wet and murky afternoon, and maybe Mr. Rip ley hadn't thoroughly enjoyed is. not knowing that ho had struck an oft day on the T.os Angeles weather calendar. Or perhaps someone had sprung the original Joke on him that II was "very unusual." At any rate. Mr. Ripley felt In ;i steam roller mood, and he let both the parties, their leaders, their laws and proposed laws, Mr. Roosev< It and his now nationalism Included, be caught im.lcr tho roller and pressed out flat for his pleasure and the edification of the public. -( OBBH BOTH PARTIES "The railroads have nothing tn r\ pect from either party. As between Republicans and Deinoi rat-, at pres ent, there is nothing to choose," lie said, "Both an controlled by the de structive factions." The election of a Democratic con gress promised no change for the bet ter, as far as he could sec. While eschewing politics, Mr. Ripley £,"i\ <■ his opinion "i Mr Roosi ■ ■ i 1912 presidential candidate in these words: ■■j ,i.i not think thn railroads would view him with equanimity." The word "equanimity" was pronounced with a smile which showed that Mr. Ripley whs careful as to bis choice of un ad lectlvo, and thai lie knew it. If he had hen discussing the matter with another railroad official it is not dif ficult t" understand the synonym he would ha\ c used. As in Taft, Mr. flipley thought tho country didn't know enough about him tin yet, although I ■■ thinks the rail roads would be n lot better off with out that last bnti h of legislation imaged by congress al tij - ■ president's dli tation. "The most unobjectionable feature of it all is the commerce court," said Mr. Itipley. "The railroads have wanted a body that would devote, all its time to , railroad matters and would bo a court of appeal from the Interstate commerce commission's decisions. TALKS OF COMMKRCK i 1)1 I!T "Hut the railroads will have to pay fur the education of the court, which is composed of politicians instead of rail road experts. This method of passing on the interstate commission's act*- ■will be more satisfactory to the rail roads than the former plan of taking th.'in to the district courts. I listrict judges an not equipped to decide Im portant railroad points" Eliminating Roosevelt and Taft as 1913 presidential possibilities, Mr. Rip li-y did not say whom the railroads would favor among i lie Republicans, and as reticent as to Wilson, Harmon or other Democrats. Rut '■*■' says the railroads re to ho extremely cautious in the immediate future; they are tired Mi" the ■'progressive 1 ' agitation, new na tionalism anil Insurgency and all that smacks of it; the railroads are not co- Irig to take a chance while this spirit mis abroad in tho land, In declares, but are hoping that out of ill "i it. will i mil., and soon at that, that lull which follows as well us precedes the storm.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNIMJ, DECEMBER 20, lfoO; NEW YORK SHAKEN BY GAS EXPLOSION THAT KILLS TEN i Shock from Blast at Grand Cen tral Station. First Thought Dynamite, Felt 2 Miles f.\Fsoi-iatcd Press] NEW YORK, Pee. 19.—The heart of Manhattan island was shaken this morning by a terrific explosion of U : lumtnating t;as in the auxiliary power i house of the (iraini Central station. !

Four workmen who are missing are believed to have perished, ami of the 126 Injured M were removed to hospi tals, Of those right may die, An In vestigation by the police is under way. Traffic on the New York Central railroad ceased entirely fur sumo hours and was disorganized for the rest of the day, but the new Station itself, j now Hi process of i instruction, was | not damaged The dead: NICOL.I GALUCCI, laborer. PATRICK JORDAN, laborer. ]•:. B. I.iYKKMORK. Pullman car In spector, C, McMARROW, laborer. EDITH OFFNER, stenographer. MARY POPE of Boston, M.is:<. CHARLES ROBERTS, expressman. FRANQ BTAGG, watchman. JOHN RYAN, laborer. GUTHER JOHNBTONE, electrician. The Injured Include laborers and other employes of the railroad, pedes trians, bystanders and others In the \ Iclnlty of the accident, c\K THROWS on AUTO A passing surface ear. carrying seven passengers, was lifted from its trucks and huiled on an automobile running alongside. Four of the seven I passengers were killed outright, but. | the chauffeur of tlie motorcar was only | cut and bruised. For some hours it was believed dynamite alone i ould have wrought such Instantaneous and demolishing havoc, but late in the afternoon Fir*. Chief Croker said ho was convinced the explosion was due to a mixture of air and Illuminating gas, used in light ing railroad ears, touched off by an electric spark. The yas had acciunu lati 1 In the auxiliary power house from a broken pipe snapped off. by a runaway passenger ear. The force of the explosion ran north and south from one to two miles along the rocky ridge that is the backbone of the island and oast and west later ally for a mile. Foundations were jarred. Trails were shaken out of plum, windows were blown in by the thousands,, ceiling* came crashing down on the heads of those beneath and the pavements were littered with pulverized slasn. The loss to, shop keepers and prop erty owners in the vicinity will spread over a wide range of items. < 'hrlstmas displays were blown backward into the shops, sucked Into the street or cut to ribbons by dying glass. Whole fronts of buildings were left without a v> Indow. HOW DISASTER OCCURRED As nearly as can l" N determined this [a how the accident occurred; A train of empty passengers cars hauled by an electric motor, in charge of Albert Heagroatt, -A«t out "f con trol, crashed into a steel and concrete buffer post, snapped it off anil remmed a pile of lumber behind it Into a gas main connecting with the gaa from which the tanks ot passenger cars are charged. In the Interval before the ex loslon the broken main had ample tinm to pour high pressure «as into the low er levels of tii> auxiliary powerhouse. When workmen set to clearing away the lumber it is assumed that one of them dropped a steel tool across the third rail, there was a flash of electric ity and the great reservoir of accumu lated K'is exploded. What happened then will neve- hr positively known. The roof of Ore house No. 2, directly across the street from the powerhousn, lifted like a magic carpet A shower of glass, brioks, mortar and splintered timbers began to fall "ii tip- pavements and In an in stant Hi. streets were filled with pros trate men and women blown Hat by the Hhock and the rush of the air. They sat dazed where they fell, picking Blivera from their flesh. Tho tenements to tho cast of Ixxing ton avenue poured thousands into the streets. Whole houses were emptied In a twinkling, the tall facades of tlic many fashionable hotels in the neighborhood were spotted with faces of half-dressed guests, Hhaken from their sleep, peering from broken windows. FIRE COMMISSIONER SAYS GAS CAUSED DISASTER Motorman of Train That Broke Main Held for Homicide NEW YORK, Doc. 19.—Fire Commis sioner Waldo, who reached the Bceno of Una expli lon within twenty-five minutes after ii had occurred and or dered the heads of the divisions of the di i department to make « thorough in vestigation; Issued a statement tonight. "All the Investigators from this do- I partment agree in the general state- I merit that the explosion was caused by a train backing Into the bumper and I breaking the two-Inch supply main car ' rying the gas to tho various points in the .ml-. ' It- Bald. ' '!'!i' i! ■ aping gas permeated iln' powerhouse until it formed .mi explosive mixture by com bination with the air." lie adds that the leak was discovered about fifteen minutes after tier- break occurred by William A.
