in the annals of the earthquake is
the experience of the family of Pro

' great chasm in the earth in which
their home va3 engulfed.
For more than a week members
of the family have been living in
I the bottom of this abyss at least
onehundrcd and forty feet below
the surface of the carlh. Surviving
neighbors have been Icwcrlng them j
food and water at the imminent
risk of dislodging which might fall
and crush them beneath. ,
Dclicf is expressed that rain or
, new shocks will mean the deaths of j

trict indicate the eruption of the '
new crater io decreasing in vio- I
lencc. A telegram from the mayor ;
of Chalchicomula, state of Puebla,
however, states that shocks have
been numerous there sinco the first

One Writgr Doubts the Reality
of Peace Behind Act of
LONDON, Jan. 12. Regret that the
United States did not participate in
, ratification of the treaty of Versailles
Is expressed by today's newspapers.
Some editorials strike a doleful note.
"The omission of America's signa
ture to the ratifying document," says
tho Telegraph, "stands for the bitter
disappointment of the hope that glow
ed with promise for humanity a year
ago. It is true the league of nations
exists by the terms of the treaty but
the world knows that until the United
Stales adheres to the league not a
tithe of the usefulness and moral au
thority it should possess will belong,
to it."
The Telegraph also cites the ab
sence of Russia from Saturday's cere
mony and says:
"Until the 3ky in that direction
grows clearer there can be no world
peace nor any hope of It." j
Doubts of the reality of peace be
hind the formal act of ratification are
expressed by the Daily News.
"There is not a nation which cannot
if it wishes, manufacture now griev
ances out of the woes of the world,"
It says. "The occasions of offense!
aro so numerous thoy obscure the very
fact of peace."
The News says that "America which
did so much to make peace," had no
part in the final act.
The Chronicle, discussing the league
of nations", says it is much weakened
by tho action of tho American senate.
It expresses tho hope, nevertheless,
that allied governments will immedi
ately go ahead with the -league, but
questions whether Great Britain,!
France and Italy, without the support'
of America can assume a position to I
act as dictators to the rest of Europe, j
adding: J
"America's concurrence would have
made a great moral difference."

Little Excitement As
France Sets Out to
Name New President
PARIS, Jan. 12. The election
on tho coming Saturday, January
17, of the president of the French
republic, always one of the least
exciting functions in the political
life of the country, will be reduced
to its simplest form in this In
stance unless Premier Clemenceau
nhould decide not to be a candi
date, of which there is now no ex
pectation. In only a few minor details will
the election resemble tho choosing
of an American president. Con
forming to the custom, there prob
ably will not be any party con
ventions. The presidential elJc
tora themselves 300 senators and
62-i deputies were elected inde
pendently of any presidential is
sue, tho eventual candidates being
unknown when the members of
parliament were chosen.
A mere assurance by Premier
Clemenceau that he will accept
the presidency will render a pre
liminary meeting unnecessary, in
which event the occasion will be
chiefly social and gastronomical.
The day's program will begin
with luncheons in the spacious
balls of tho ancient palace of the
kings of France and in the hotels
of Vorsailles, and member? of the

I Meeting Is Opened
Want To Know Whether the
Board's Verdict Is to Be Final
and Binding
WASHINGTON, Jan. 12. Bitumin
ous coal miners will accept unreserv
edly any decision made by the presi
dent's coal commission in settlement
of the coal strike, John L. Lewis, act
ing president of the United Mine
Workers of America, declared at the
opening today of the first public hear
ings of the commission. Mr. Lewis
added that tho miners' representatives
would assist the commission's inquiry.
Mr, Lewis' assurance was given in
answer to a question by Chairman
Harry N. Robinson.
Thomas T. Brewster, chairman of
the scale committee of the operators
in the central competitive field, reply
ing to the same question by the chair
man, .said ho could make no promises!
for tho operators until the commission
had given answers to ten questions'
propounded by the operators.
Chairman Robinson said the com
mission would lake up the questions
and furnish a statement to the opera
tors. The commission then adjourned
until tomorrow.
Question by Operators
I Among me operators questions were
(whether tho commissions award would
be final and binding on both miners
and oporators; whether the commis
sion would act on matters brought up
by either side; as to its authority to
, fix wages up or down; whether it
would consider it had power to make
retroactive awards concerning wages
and prices and whether in fixing prices
to sustain Its decisions it would con
sider that the prices so made would
not hold after tho expiration of tho
Lover food and fuel act.
Mr. Brewster said tho questions
were submitted "to clarify the situa
tion." "If the answers by the commission
were not satisfactory, the operators
might some of them be unwilling to
abide by the finding finally made?"
asked tho chairman.
"We'll stnnd by tho decision on any
point. We submit to arbitration," Mr.
Brewster returned.
"I understand then lhal you will only
accept this decision so far as it touches
matters-'you submit?" continued the
votes" regarding presidential pos
sibilities are taken and the dining
rooms are as animated as those
of the leading hotels in American
cities during the national conven
tion of one of the great parties.
The proceedings of the elcctory
, meeting, held at Versailles, itself
are very simple. Antonin Dubost,
president of the senate, will call
the assemblage to order at 2
o'clock in the afternoon. He will
read the articles of the constitu
tion fixing the mode of electing
tho president and then will de
clare "the national assembly is
duly constituted and the vote for
president will take place at the
speaker's stand on nomination
and roll call." Organization of the
body will be completed with the
selection by lot of 38 electors. One
additional name then will be
drawn from the hat to decide
where the alphabetical roll call
shall begin.
Nominating speeches are omit
ted. The enthusiasm generally
comes in a single burst of ap
plause when the presiding officer
declares the name of tho candidate
who has been duly elected presi
dent. The president of the con
gress thereupon declares the na
tional assembly dissolved, as soon
as ho can make himself heard.''

ately the long column of carriages,
conveying the 'electors, files back
to Paris. I
"I shouldn't like to answer that with
out a conference with some of my asso
ciates here," Mr. Brewster said.
"Isn't it wise to -accept President
Wilson's letter of instruction to the
committee as outlining its powers fully
and assume that Its members will do j
as good a piece of work as then can?"i
asked Mr. Robinson. i
I "We assume that," Mr. Brewster re
plied. "Then we'll take the whole list of
questions under advisement and makej
a statement later," Mr. Robinson said. I
Poincaire Declares He Will Be
Happy to Represent Brave
People of District
PARIS, Jan. 12. Most of the outgo

One unified Socialist candidate was
elected. Hitherto that party had boy
cotted the senate, advocating its aboli
tion The first time in the history of
France tho presidential candidate is
not a member of either' the senate or
the chamber of deputies. This was a
result of M, Clemcnceau's refusal to
become a candidate in tho Var con
stituency, Rene Renault being elected
to the premier's seat in the senate.
M. Clemenceau will thus be unable to
take part in tho election of a presi
dent. Today's newspapers unite in felici
tating President Poincare on his elec
tion to the senate from the department
of the Meuse.
President Poincare has written to
tho electors accepting the senatorship.
Ho was not a candidate but received a
few votes on the first ballot and was
chosen almost unanimously on the

mark of faithful affection you have
spontaneously given me," ho wrote.
"At the end of the magistracy entrust

patriotic populations of the Meuse,
some of whom have been during four
years the victims of invasion, while
others have had their homes destroyed

I shall work with them for the re

Tho house measure, a combination
of Attorney General Palmer's original
bill, introduced by Rep. Davey, ot
Ohio, and revisions made by Rep. Gra

tromely stringent penalties for viola
tions of the sedition laws. Included
is the death penalty which the bill
