STUDENTS HKftdK .0
On the tenth floor of the building
adjoining the burning structure is the
law department of New Tork univer
sity. Here M odd students were lis
tening to a lecture by Frank H. Som
mer, former sheriff of Essex county, N.
J. He saw the smoke and saw the
girls tripped on the roof. He led his
crass * to the roof of the university
quarters, where they found two lad
ders. The boys seized these, bore them
down two flights to the roof of an In
tervening building, swarmed out of
the windows-and raised them to the
roof of the burning structure.
Forty girls were brought down to
safety. Hyman Mezcher, a cutter, slid
down the elevator cable 10 stories and
was found alive at the bottom, stand
ing in water up to his armpits. His
hands .were lacerated and his forehead
was cut, but otherwise he was unhurt.
Just how many trips were made by
the elevators will never be ascertained.
There are varying reports of heroism
at the elevators, but it Is impossible
tonight to learn If the elevators were
operated up to the last possible mo
ment.
INVESTIGATION TO FOLtOTV
City officials announced that the
usual Investigation which fbllows such
a disaster would be started at once.
Said Fire Chief Croker:
"This calamity 19 Just what I have
been predicting. There are no fire es
capes on this building. I have been
agitating that fire escapes be put on
buildings Just such as this. This large
loss of life Is due to this neglect."
The police say that today's fire Is
the sixth or seventh in the building
within 12 months, all of which, they
say, occurred ln the shirtwaist factory.
The others were trifling. The factory.
Incidentally. is said to be the first in
which the operators struck during the
widespread strike, settled several
months ago.
By today's disaster the total of shirt
waist operators who have perished in
New York and vicinity recently Is
raised to nearly 200.
Many weeks ago 25 girls met'death
under somewhat similar conditions In
Newark, N. J.
EMPLOYER IS MYSTIFIED
Max Blanck, one of the proprietors of
the Triangle waist- company, said to
night:
"How or where the fire started I
have no idea.. There was no explosion,
of that I am sure. We who escaped by
the roof saw nothing of what happened
below us. Probably we were the last
persons to get out of the building alive.
"I can not understand why the people
on the eighth floor could not have es
caped had they not been thrown Into a
panic. They could have made their wav
out by the fire escapes in the rear. This
means of rescue, however, was cut off
to those on the ninth and tenth floors
by the flames."
CHISHOLM TAKEN
TO SANTA ROSA
Physician Held as Fort Ross
Slayer Refuses to Reveal
Home Address
Dr. Lewis C. Chisholm, who is charged
by Sheriff Jack Smith of Sonoma county
with the murder of John D. Powell,
the young painter whose body with
two bullets through the head was
found March IS in Coleman gulch, near
Tort Ross, was taken from the city
prison yesterday morning and removed
to Santa Rosa, where he was formally
booked for murder.
On his way to the ferry building
Chisholm admitted to Sheriff Smith and
Detectives James McGowan and George
McLaughlin, who had the prisoner in
charge, that he would not reveal where
he had been rooming In tilts city, as he
wanted to protect a woman. V
"I'd die first." said Chisholm, "be
fore I would reveal this woman's
name. She Is now In my room and 1
want to give her a chance to' get away
and not become Involved In this case.
She comes from a good family. Sho is
a single woman, but she has been a
good friend to me, and I will not drag
her name into this case."
All of yesterday the efforts of the
detective department to locate Chjs
holm's room were redoubled, but up
until an early hour this morning they
were unsuccessful.
At Santa Rosa Sheriff Smith put
Chisholm through a course of ques
tioning lasting all afternoon, but the
pseudo physician revealed nothing.
At the close of yesterday's work on
the case the evidence against Chisholm,
was far from complete enough to bring
about his, conviction on a murder
charge, but the detectives handling the
case hope to draw their net close
enough within a day or so to complete
ly enmesh the accused man -by the
strongest kind of circumstantial evi
dence. One of the most important
points yet established Is that the T>o<*y
of the man found murdered Is really
that of John D. Powell. While Chis
holm has been identified as the man
who accompanied the <murdered man
about the Fort Ross* country, no one
who knew Powell has yet identified the
body.;. : > , :■; r "\
There is little doubt that Miss
Venire Dean, the nurse whom Chisholm
asked to act as Powell's widow so as
to collect the. $2,000 life Insurance he
was supposed to have carried, knows
more about the case than she has been
permitted to Rive toy the newspapers.
it has developed that ■ while Miss Dean
was nursing Mrs. ].. A. Hughes, whose
husband conducts a store at 1664 Eddy
street,' Chisholm'called on her ' several
times just after the.discovery of the
Fort Ross murder. The murder is sup
posed to have been committed March
9. On March 11 Chisholm called at the
Hughes store to:see Mies Dean. lie
wore a three weeks' growth of beard
ami stated In Hughes' presence that
he had Just come -.from the country.
Chisholm appeared, very ' nervous "and
paced up and down the store'contin
uously. Later he called on Miss Dean
and , took her to the sidewalk, where
they engaged, in. an animated discus
sion for nearly half an hour. :
I George Call, who lives near Coleman
I gulch, and who frequently saw .the
murdered man and his companion,
picked * Chisholm"; out 7of . a line _of -20
prisoners, at the; city prison yesterday
and identified the physician as the com
panion* of the dead man.

WASHINGTON. March 25.—President
Taft and the state department were
officially , notified by telegraph from
Mexico of the resignation of the cab
inet. .
At the war department it was said
that the resignation of the cabinet

Major General Leonard Wood, chief
of staff of the army, said that 16,000
additional troops could be rushed to the

Diaz Chooses Ministers
CITY OF MEXICO, March 25.—
though no. official announcement has
been made, it is known thai five of the
new members of President Dlas' cabi
net have been selected and it Is almost
certain Jose Llmantour will remain as
minister of finance. Other selections
besides Senor de la Barra as minister
of foreign relations are:
Demetro Sodl, Judge of the supreme
court, minister of justice, succeeding
Justlno Fernandez.
Norbeto Dominguez, postmaster gen
eral, succeeding Leander Fernandez.
Manuel Maroquin. well known civil
engineer, department of fomento
(promotion of colonization and indus
try), succeeding Olagrio Molina.
Jorge Estanol, an attorney, minister
of education, succeeding Justlno Sierra.
IGXOHA.NCE AT CAPITAL
So x far as announcement are con
cerned, Mexico City is as ignorant to
night as it was yesterday. Officials
expected to be aMe to give out the
names of the men appointed, but at 7
o'clock tonight it was said that the
administration 'would make no an
nouncement before next week. - It Is
barely possible that changes may then
be made in the list of those now se
lected. For the departments of war
and Interior nothing has been given
out.
General Bernardo Reyes, now in Italy,
who by many was believed to be slated
for the post of secretary of war and
marine, is returning to Mexico, but not
to serve In that capacity. According
to a high authority, he will return to
serve in the army.
DIAZ TO NAME REFORMS
With the exception of General Diaz
himself, there is no man; in Mexico
whom the Mexican people credit with
greater military genius than General
Reyes, and It is believed the mere
knowledge erf the fact that he is to be
sent Into the .field will do much to break
the spirit of .the revolution.,' "•".'•'7
With the changes in the cabinet, re
forms will be enacted, which will in
clude changes in the electoral system,
effective suffrage in the election of
state governors and a " reformation of
the powers of the- jefes politico.
It Is said a full program of these
reforms will be given in the presi
dent's message -next Saturday at the
opening of congress.
That the administration's policy of
reform now has am excellent chance of
being carried out successfully is cur
rently believed, and it is believed that
there will be no alteration in its atti
tude toward .the rebels so far as the
war Is concerned. „
"I hope and earnestly trust that the
j present differences wfill soon be solved
j In the best interests of the country and
jto the satisfaction of all reasonable
j and patriotic persons,'* said Senor Ll

WASHINGTON. March 23.—President
Tart was gratified today to receive from
the emperor of Japan a message recip
rocating the president's expression of
good will and friendship toward Japan
made to the Japanese ambassador,
Baron TJchlda, several days ago. Baron
Uchida called at the White House this
afternoon and delivered In person the
emperor's message. y
President, Taft has been anxious to
set at rest tire reports of differences be
tween this country and Japan, especial
ly with reference to the mobilization of
troops in Texas. 7 He said recently he
was at a loss to understand the motive
behind such "malicious and baseless
stories." He sent for Baron Uchida to
express this:sentiment to him and to
ask that he convey the message to the
emperor. JThe message reads:
To the Persident of the United
States of America:
I was greatly pleased to receive
your very kind message conveyed -
to me through my ambassador ln
Washington, and I thank you for
It. I was already well convinced
that you had given no credence
to the false and wicked reports re
garding Japan, but It was especial
ly a source of profound satisfaction
to me to receive from you the as
surance that the relations of amity
and good understanding between
our two countries were never better
or more cordial than at this time.
I am most happy to be able entire
ly to reciprocate that assurance.

RUSSIA DEMANDS
DECISIVE REPLY
Answer to Muscovite Repre
• sentations Must Be Direct
and Prompt
Czar's Government Makes Open
;" Threat in Latest Notice to
Chinese Foreign Board
7 BT." PETERSBURG," March 25.—
Rsslan government is* determined - to
force China to take decisive action re
garding the Russian demand that.the
provisions of the treaty of 1881 be com
plied with.. Russia's ultimatum, which
has; been presented to the administra
tion at?-Pakln * through the Russian
minister, declares that China must
give satisfactory answer to? the Russian
note of February, 16, setting forth *In
detail the Russian claims, before March
28, otherwise it will hold the "Chinese
government- responsible " for • such ac
tion as Russia deems advisable to take.
The' Ultimatum .was contained" in '_ a
telegram from M. Neratoff, the acting
minister of foreign affairs, to M. Kros.
tovetz, the Russian minister .'at Peking,
as follows:, ' -
ANSWER "* EVASIVE
"Negotiations In recent months have
convinced the imperial government that
the Chinese are seeking by cryptic and
evasive answers to reject the points of
the note of February il6. As an in
stance, March 19, the Chinese memo
randum presented to the Russian min
ister yielded on the one hand to our
repeated representations' and?agreed
that ■ the. establishment of a consulate
at Kobde should not: be made depend
ent upon. the Introduction .of customs
treaties, while on the other hand it
remained silent ? regarding the estab
lishment of other? consulates for which
provision was made in article 10 of the
St. Petersburg treaty, and also regard
ing monopolies which," contrary to the
agreements among the powers, had
been introduced in the province of Sin
Kfang. - ' ...-. *
"It is also Intimated In the trade of
local products that -Russian tradersj
must observe the same conditions as
tile Chinese, thus entirely ignoring the
treaty provisions exempting Russians
trading in Mongolia and western China
from the payment of customs duties
and other taxes whatsoever.
"In _ view of the futile character of
such negotiations, in the course of
which the Chinese government has
sought only to restrict Russia's treaty
rights by advancing arguments which
it afterward abandoned, the Russian
government sees itself obligated to
interfere in this procrastination, for
which there Is no justification, and re
quests the Chinese government for
mally to admit that all the points in
the note of February 16 are valid and
conform t othe treaty stipulations.
"Only after such admission can the
Russian government agree to enter
into negotiations on the questions of
the introduction of customs duties/the
establishment of a special regime for
the tea trade, or any other partial
modification of the treaty of ISSI.
"If an exhaustive and satisfactory
reply, to all six points of the note of
February 16 is not received by March
25, Russia reserves to itself freedom
of action and will make the Chinese
government responsible for the obsti
nacy displayed by it."
