NEW YORK. Jan. 27.— Hundreds of
persons witnessed the death yesterday from the center span of the new East River bridge of Patrick McDermott. an iron worker. McDermott fell 156 feet. He had been working on the iron work on the Williamsburg side of the bridge, and with his fellow workmen had Just raised a large iron girder. While standing near the edge of the iron work he lost his balance. The men on the bridge thought they saw McDermott swimming for the shore, but they evidently were mis taken.

"The faculty regards the action of the sophomores at the theater in the light of an offense and we decided that the offenders owed It to the Institution to make an apology. 'When they refused we suspended them from classes Tor the rest of the semester. They may return to their classes if nothing further develops at the expiration of their terms of sus pension, and the same Is true of the others." The students are determined to "get even" with Pratt, whom they accuse of having caused all the trouble, and they Intend at least to cut his hair. A meet ing of all the students in the university, outside of those in the preparatory and normal schools, was called for to-day, but President Kingsbury would net allow the gathering to be held in any of the uni versity buildings. The meeting was con sequently postponed until to-morrow, to be held in a building off the campus. Strike resolutions will be voted then. President Kingsbury said to-day: GENERAL STRIKE LIKELY. The entire student body probably will be at the trial and there is a prospect of a "rough house." Sheriff Emery said l..ere was not room for them and he did not want to bother with them, so he released them on their own recognizance to appear in court to morrow. They are charged wjth assault.

SAX RAFAEL, Jan. 27.— A landslide oc curred early this morning on the Califor nia Northwestern Railroad a few miles north of. this city. The Bide of the moun tain caved In and many tons of earth and rock were precipitated upon the track, en tirely covering It for a distance of 150 feet. The slide occurred at the northern mouth of the Puerto Suello tunnel and Is supposed to have taken place just after the ncrth-bound passenger train from San Francisco en route to Santa, Rosa passed through the tunnel. The up-coun try train was crowded with passengers this morning and that there was not a catastrophe Is surprising. Had the slide occurred a short time before it did, thu locomotive of the Santa Rosa train would have surely run Into the obstruction, as the track through the tunnel Is on a down grade and the train could not have been stopped in time to avoid disaster. The cave-In Is about 100 feet from the mouth of the tunnel up the mountain side and the earth was torn away for a width of sixty feet. The entire mouth of the tunnel was blocked and travel was de layed up to late this afternoon.

The strikers, after learning that the Mountain Copper Company would not in any way recognize the union, waived that demand and only asked "that there be no discrimination as against union men. At a conference held in this city last week it was agreed that should the company publicly agree not to discriminate the strikers would return to work and the strike would be declared off.

From all we know now such communication is limited to short distances, but that is no reason why the distance should'not be increased. "The fact that thought may be commu nicated from one brain to another with out material connection Is a vital fact to consider. Two men in the same room may communicate their thoughts to each other by telepathy, or whatever you may call it. This is well known, as Is the fact that - longer distances have been covered in the same way. How long it will be be fore we will be able to think across great distances is a mere matter of specula tion at present and great minds are giv ing much attention to the question." NEW TORK, Jan. 27.— Since Rev. Or. Charles H. Parkhurst voiced his belief in telepathy he has received many letters from persons who agree with his views and some of the instances of "thought transference" which they recite are In the realm of the wonderful. "One of these is most peculiar," said he to ,The Call correspondent to-night. "A gentleman told me that one night he had a very vivid dream in which he thought he had broken off one of his teeth. So much did it impress him that he remem bered it . in the morning and the first thing he ud was to feel in his mouth to see if the tooth was gone. It was in its place, however, but before the day had passed he received word from his son, who was in Washington, saying he had broken a tooth while he was at dinner and he in closed the part which had been broken off. It was the same identical tooth which the father in his dream believed he had lost." Dr. Parkhurst paid in a sermon re cently: "When we had a thought years ago ¦which we ¦wanted to convey to a friend in Europe we put it aboard a steamer in the form of a letter. Then, thanks to Cyrus Field, who was a member of my church, a fine electric line was substi tuted for the steamer and now Marconi is thinking across the ocean by aid of a medium a million times finer than even wire. By and by, probably, we shall be able to think across the water without going to the trouble and expense of set ting up apparatus at even short -ends of the route. For telepathy Is already a demonstrable fact when exercised by cer tain individuals. Special Dispatch to The Call. Dr. Parkhurst's Views on Possibilities of Telepathy. BRAIN MAY FLASH THOUGHT OVER SEA . "It is substantially true,' he said. "I do not remember all the details. I did not read the letter as I stated. I did not refer to the question to Mr. Nicholl, who seemed to know all about It. I did meet Mr. Roberts in Statuary Hall. Whether I said: 'Oh, my God,' and the rest of it I do . not remember. I did say to Mr. Roberts that I would like to have the thing stopped, and, just as he stated, voluntarily made him the proposition that if, in his judgment as the advocate here of' the Holland torpedo-boat, I should sign the statement showing I had made no accusations of anything between them I would do so." The committee then went into executive session. "Mr. Lessler," he said, "declined to sign it because it was addressed to the Hol land Company." Wheeler interrogated Roberts as to his connection with the Holland Company, finally asking: "Have you not been a very ardent, avowed and aggressive adherent of the Holland submarine boat proposition?". "Yes, I have been and so I have avowed." Lessler was recalled and corroborated what Roberts had stated. At this point Roberts produced the let ter, which was to the effect that it was not L«essler's intention to connect the Holland Company directly or indirectly with an offer of a bribe. LESSLEE REFUSES. TO SIGN. The statement I had prepared I submitted to Lessler In this room the next Monday. It was the mornlnff when the sub-committee was to report to the full committee and I handed Lessler the paper. Mr. Lessler thereupon volunteered, without any suggestion from me — It came from him — that' he would make any statement regarding the matter that wax thought to be fair and reasonable. lie paid that when lie made his flrst statement In the committee he did not intend to injure the Holland people and I re marked to him that If he did not Intend to Injure those people the only thing he could do. as an honest and upright gentleman, was to make some such statement. He said if I had one prepared lie would sign it. He »ald further that he would not Blgn such a state ment to be published. 1 gald to him that I did not suppose the Holland people would cara to publish any such statement: that I did not think they would make any use of It what ever, unless their Interests were to be Jeop ardized by the use of his original statement and then in self-defense they would be enabled to use any statement that he mlghi make. On that understanding he had me make the state ment. * The thing he referred to was the proposed investigation which we had authorized to bs made by the sub-committee. I said to him that the investigation was not of my seeking and I had no benefit to gain by pressing it. So far as I personally wag concerned. I did not care whether it went on or stopped; thai there were other parties besides myself in this mat ter. The statement having gone out to tho country that the Holland Submarine Company had attempted to Influence his action by the offer of money — and 1 did not know whether tbe Holland people would be willing; to have ths thing smothered — that phase of the ques tion would have to be considered. % WASHINGTON. Jan. 27.-When the House Committee on Naval Affairs re sumed the investigation of- the bribery charges to-day, Representative Lessler took the stand and denied the statements made yesterday by Philip Doblin. "I desire to deny," he said at the out set of his detailed statement, "absolutely and unequivocally as false the statement made by .the witness Doblin here yes terday as to any collusive scheme or any of the substantial details sworn to by him. here, and desire to reiterate that the facts as originally told by me are true." Attorney Roberts made the following statement to the committee:' Mr. Chairman, I have learned during th« re cess that a wrong impression has gone out, arising from the incident alluded to by Lessler in his examination of a meeting he had with me (In Statuary Hall). 1 desire now to state fully my recollection of the entire transaction, not with any intent or purpose of Injuring Leesler or prejudicing him in the minds of the committee, but merely that it should be In the record. On the forenoon of January 21. while I was going through Statuary Hall on the way to my committee room I met Lessler going in the opposite direction. He spoke to me and said: "Can't we stop this thing? My God, I can not stand it; it is killing me." AGREES TO A 'RETRACTION. Says He Was Eager to Re tracb His Accusation of Bribery.

It js rot because Pyramid Pile Cure is so expensive that many people decline to give it a trial, but because they find it too great a tax on their credulity to believe that the published letters bearing testi- mony to the merit of this remedy are genuine and bona fide; especially to those who have realized the suffering incident to piles is it incredible that any one who has been afflicted twenty-five and thlrty years with the worst forms of protrud- ing and bleeding piles should be cured by the application of a simple remedy, when their physician has assured them that the only relief is in a surgical opera- tion.
