lastVngbt workmen wero employed lu
removing the tons of loo^e brick and
broken timber* from Ford’s Theatre
building. This morning the old hulk
looked less hideous »bau when the
scores of dead and broken bodies were
being carried from it. A hundred or
more broken desks and tables were
piled in the rear ou each floor, and the
litter of papers and books bad been
gathered up, and such as were of any
value taken to a place of safe keeping.
By 6 o’clock, an hour earlier than
1 usual, th* old clerks began to arrive at
1 the building. Many of them with a
\ view to net losing time, knocked ou the
^ doors of the annex adjoining the ruins
and reported to the official*, but it will
probably be some days before the force
Is put to work. The Coroner’s inquiry
will commence Monday. The jury em
panelled consist* of practical business
men of high character. Investigation
at the War Department will also be had.

\ The sad results of the dewafali of the
pmc tbeatrue furnished the principal
topic of conversation all day. The
f- -opinion was unanimous that there was
blame some where for this shocking fa
tality, and many a man echoed the
words of Dr. Bartlett that he uttered at
the relief meeting yesterday afternoon,
that the accident was not one the re
. sponsib! lty for which could not be laid
k upon God. It was a preventable acci
jjldeot. This morning the clerks ware

A Col Stewart, the superintendent of
jj^P-iSiruction of the tew city p^st office
^^^iding made a careful examination of
the defective underpinning of the
building with a great deal of interest,
under the direction of Lieut Amiss.
He thought that the whole trouble
came from the weakness of the struc*
1 lure by the excavations.
' To-dav all the debris was removed,
and one could better tell the nature of
the accident. The ceilings and floors
looked too thin to support what they
were compelled to bear. 1 he con
struction is of the old style known as
cast iron construction, with the sup
porting cast Iron pillars placed one
Bfcbcve the other in direct line.
There is quite a comment over the
that not a flag on any public build
ing was half-masted to-day..
Ail the survivors unite that the crash
came with hardiy an Instant's warn
ing and that there was not time enough
1 for them to comprehend what had hap
pened and to take more lhaa the slight
est steps toward self preservation.
Secretary Lament arrived here this
afternoon. Soou after he reached the

show that the collapsed theatre
^Bjildlng was for years known officially
to be unfit for human occupancy by rea
son not only of structusal weakneas,but
also of its defective sanitary condition.
Senator Cockrell, of Missouri, Chair
man of the Committee on Appropria
tions and a Senator who has always
taken an interest in public buildings, is
quoted as saying that he bad made re
peated efforts to have the old theatre

^biUtiea Necessary to secure a Pension.
Washington, D. C., June 10.—Judge
Lochren, the Commissioner of Pensions,
with the approval of Secretary Hoko
' Smith, has issued the following import
ant order as to adjudicating and fixing
rates ^ef pensions under the act of June
27.419 J?
**1. A Cikr'no for pension under the
secend sections, of the act of June 27,
1K90, can only be Allowed upon proof of
mental er physical1 disability of a per
manent character not *he result of the
claimant’s own vicious ha>its, Incapa
citlng him from the performance of
manual labor in such degree as to .rend
er him uuahle to render support.
“2. No specifleic Injury or disability .
can, as such, have a pensionable rating
under that act or be considered other
wise than as it affects the capacity of
the claimaut to perform ordinary man
ual labor.
“3. Proof that the disability is not
the result ef the claimant’s own vicious
habits is requisite; and therefore the
causes and circumstances of the origin
of Che disability should be be shown by
the evidence furnished, In support of
the claim for pension, so far as can be
done; and by persons other than the
“4 To give the claimant a pension
under this act the disability must be
such as to incapacitate him from the j
performance of manual labor in such a '
degree as to render him unable to earn
a support: yet the act recognizes dif
ferences in the degree of such pension
able disability, giving 812 per month in
case of the greatest, and SG per month
in case of the lowest degree of such :
pensionable disability, rendering the
claimaut unable to earn a support by
manual labor. It also provides for In
terment. The proper ratings under abie
act will therefore be made in accord
ance with such rules for rating &9 the
medical referee shall prescribe, subject
to the approval of the Commi9rloner.”

Brought Ont at Testerday’s 8e««loo of the
Burden Morder Trial—More Brldcnce
About the Hatchet.
New Bedford, Mas*., June 10.—
Tbe evidence to the Borden trial to
day was chiefly corroborative of prior
testimony and not of great value to
either side. But one witness was badly
confused on cross examination and
others admitted several facts of some
importance to the defense.
IRThe first thing was the testimony of
Officers Edson and Mahony, that they
tried last night to search the Borden
cellar for the hatchet handle, about
which Mulialy testified yesterday, but
were not allowed to enter.
Edson was carefully cross examined
by Mr. Robinson as to the
search of the cellar and barn made the
Monday after tbe murders and stated
that be saw a handleless hatchet in
Mull&ly's hands.
Lead found In the barn was shown to
the jury by Mr. Robinson. Witness
testified that Detective McHenry was
about the premises shortly after tbe
murders and at police headquarters a |
number of times afterwards, but he
would not connect him with the police
Mr. Robinson also showed by this wit
ness that most of the eflicers promi
nently connected with the case, except
Muilaly, were promoted since the mur
ders. It also appeared that witness and
other oiicers had got ever the barbed
wire fence in the rear of the premises
without difficulty.
State Detective George F. Seaver
then testified to an examination of the
handleless hatchet, corroberattng other
witnesses as to Its appearance and the
dust on it; also testified to his search for
tbe dresses in the house.
He also described the character and
location of the blood spets found In th9
roams where the murders were com
On crass-oxamlnatlon ho became bad

age of tbe break on the batchet handle
or abeut the character of tbe dresses
which he examined. The court at one
o’clock adjourned till Monday.

Coi.umuub. O., June 10.—Several days
ago tbe Warden of tbe State prteon re
ceived a tip from & trusty prisoner tbat
a conspiracy to escape existed among
the convicts and that plans had been
developing for sortie by which a large
number would secure liberty. Cure
ful search was made, result
ing yesterday in the discovery
of the mouth of a tunnel in the
cellar of the broom shop. This mouth
Is in the tqasonry, and it wasclosed by a
board daubbij with mortar ^nd made in
close Imitation of the adjoining wall, so
that its presence defied detection in the
gloomy cellar. Guards Were placed
where they coaid survey the entrance
and developments w«re awaltod. (short
ly afternoon, Charles Johnston, a Cin
cinnati burglar, made appearance
with a dozen suits of e!ti\»n’* clothes,
and was about te enter '^he tunnel,
when he was seized bp the guards. He
was hurried away and the watch
resumed with the result tbat John
Horn, a Dayton burgiar was seon a'ter
cangbl in tbe same way. They th 0
made a clean breast of the whole plan. {
The tnnnel was begun early In March
and extended under the north wall.
The Job was ripe and ready to be fin
ished at any time. At least a dozen
others would have gene out at the same
time. The schemers had a string tele
graph frem the paint room where many
of them worked, to the cellar room
where the tunnel began. It Is supposed
they took turns in digging.

The Election For Members of tfe N
Reichstag Takes Place
Parties Are Badly Divided and By
Elections Are Sure to Be Num
erous—No Well Marked Lines
ins: For 397 Placeses—A Re
ported Betrothal Denied—So
cialists Proclaim Treasonable
Bert.tx, June 10.—At the general
elections for members of the Reichstag,
to be held oo Thursday next, and at the
by-elections that are snre to be requir
ed. 397 meoibers, the full complement,
will be returned.
The present week closes with 1,530can
didates in the field. Not only new aspir
ants far seats, hut new political faction*,
appear dally and as election day draws
gradually nearer the confusion grows
more confounded.
Little can be done In the few days
that elapso before the polllag to disen
tangle this Intricate web that has been
woveu by the many factions. Instead
of the eight recognized parties In the
late Reichstag holding the electoral
fields In the present campaign, there
are about twenty sections, each fight
ing for its own programme.
It seems Impossible now that the re
sult ef Thursday’s balloting will decide
how tho Reichstag will be constituted.y
Judged frein the present ontlook It is \
thought that the vote Inuestof son- '
stitueucies will be cut up so that re
ballots will be necessary in two-thirds
of them.
The final results must depend oa po
litical combination* on the re-ballou.
Where the final ballot In any district
lies between ft Conservative and Social
ist, thsn the Centerest and Krelslnago
minorities by caalesclng may tsslsi In
the returning of the Conservative can
didate. In many districts the strength
of the factions Is so evewiy distributed
that It will be a toss up as to which
candidate will lead the poll.
All over the couatry the re-b*lk>ttlng
must lead to complex bartering and
vote-mongerlng bargain*, and the elec
tions sn the second poll will often be
decided, not on lines of party policy,
but on considerations of a private or lo
cal nature.
Everything promises that the new
Reichstag will be the most motley nar
