570 RECOVERI
AND
WAKING TOTAL OF EIGHT HUN-'
DRED AND THIRTY-THREE.
ARE THE LATEST FIGURES.
-r-wc FIRP |N THE slocum was:
-PROBABLY DUE TO AN EX- j
PLODING OIL LAMP.
NEW YORK, June IS.?To-day. the
'first funeral day for the victims of
the General Slocum saw the stricken,
the- east side district thronged
with people. Many were mourning
friends and relatives of the dead; the
others were attracted to the scene by J
that morbid curiosity so prevalent in
.human nature.
The total number of victims recovered
up to this morning is 570
The total number of missing is 203,
indicating total death list of S33. Of
the bodies recovered 522 have been
identified, a remarkable showing for
such a general catastrophe. Two
hundred and eighty-six of the recovered
dead are children. 253 are women
and 23 men.
A. large number of the missing are
"believed to he wedged in under the
buljc of the Slocum. which is lying in
the mud on her side off Hunts Point.
r Some question has arisen as to w ho
shall move the hulk. The wreckers
nave asked for $11,000 for the task.
The Knickerbocker Steamboat Company
claim that the removal of the
hulk is the duty of marine under writers
but others claim that as the
disaster occurred when the boat was
"the property of the steamboat company,
they should spare no expense
in recovering the dead. The city authorities
have intimated that if something
is not done to-day steps will
he taken to compel those legally responsible
to remove the wreck.
The Coroner's Inquest into the
cause and responsibility lor the disaster
will begin on Monday. A witness
turned up to-day who declares
that the fire started below ninetieth
street.
If tliis is so. it shows that Captain
"Van Shaick ran the burning vessel
tor nearly two miles before he bea<?h ed
her. River men have pointed out
*"U^UL piCtVCS UCLtvctll ?twv
street and Oak Point, all nearer the
place where the fire is supposed to
have originated than North Brothers
Island, where the hoat could have
lieen beached and possibly many
lives saved.
The witness is John Engelniann,
who came to the morgue this morning
"to look for two sisters who were lost.
He says that he jumped overboard
with his wife in his arms at Ninetysecond
street, and that the fire broke
out several blocks below that point.
He saved his wife and himself but
could not help his sisters.
The preliminary investigations
have established the fact, it is believed,
that the fire started in the
"forward hold 011 the steamboat in a
compartment known as the lamp
room. In the room was stored a barTel
of kerosene oil and some benzine.
The fire was probably due to an exploding
oil lamp.

Foralter said: "I do not think
there is any doubt about the nomination
of Fairbanks."
The Hitt boom does not appear to
be taking hold. His illness is unfortunate
for his boom, since his age, and
the attendant possibility of infirmity
is one of the strongest arguments
used agaiust him.

FOUR TIMES J:
? ?.
WAS THE CURRENT TURNED ON ,
BEFORE MOSE JOHNSON
WAS PRONOUNCED
DEAD.
THE CRIME FOR WHICH HE
PAID THE PENALTY WAS
A MOST BRUTAL
ONE.
OHIO PENITENTIARY. CO HUMBUS,
Ohio, June IS.?Mose Johnson,
colored, was executed at 12:110 Saturday
morning. The victim was in
the chair for Is minutes, and during j
that time the current was turned into
liiin four times. While the electrical
apparatus did not cause death instantly
as in cases prior to the execution
of Schiller Thursday night, the scenes
enacted then were not repeated. The
doctors profited by their experience
of Thursday night, and rather than
be compelled to place the prisoner
bach into the?chair after he was declared
dead, they waited a sufficient
length of time to prove conclusively | '
that there was not a spark of life in 11
me uoc]y. mereLuiure, tut; lJ y-y 1 <?
iiave relied alone upon their ears to
learn if there were heart beats, but
on this occasion the stethoscope was
brought into use and after the first,
charge that instrument revealed faint
pulsations. Xo one can give an adequate
explanation of the failure of
the' current to do deadly work in
the first charge, as is usually the case,
and the only cause ascribed is that
the men were of strong , resisting
power.
Mose Johnson was convicted of the
murder of Edward Test, an insurance
agent in Portsmouth, Ohio, on the
night of October 17, 1903.
Test had gone to the residence of
Mrs. Sarah Galium to collect the premium
on an insurance policy when !
Johnson and a man named Rufus
Burcham, mistaking Test for a friend
of Mrs. Cullum, broke into the house
and attacked him. A fierce struggle |
ensued, during which Test was stabbed
five limes and was hogging his
assailants to spare his life when John- ,
c/xn r-\\-ri t;Virxtc Intn "Hid hflfU and ,
left him to die. Burcham is serving <
a life sentence.

A Hapoy Crowd. *
A happy crowd was seen coming 1
ip Jefferson street to the Court- 1
louse this morning. Any person who 1
saw them could easily tell that there ^
vould be a wedding shortly. There '
vere about half a dozen of them and 1
he.v were all talking and laughing in *
nch a degree that the worthless '
:tirs that gnaw bones on the Court- '
muse lawn forgot to growl. The s
irowd wended its way to the County 1
Klerk's office, where the license was 1
ssued. The smile that played on 1
hat young man's face when he saw 1
he picture at the top of the license, 1
s still flying through the air in the
ilerk's office. After obtaining the '
icehse the procession moved off to 1
unit a priest, where those two hearts c
hat have been beating as one for the f
last few months, were welded to- 1
jether so that they can never beat '
my other way.

A STRONG FIGHT ?
1
Is Being Made In the Blackshere- ]
Bfeatty Case. <
PARKERSBURG, June IS.?(Special.)?Nothing
new has developed
n the Blackshere-Beatty trial here,
vol. A. Howard Fleming was on the
witness stand last evening and again
his morning. He will probably be
called again Monday. The government
is making a strong fight. The
defense will probably have its wit
aesses on the stand Monday or Tuesday.
From present indications the
trial will last several days Into next
week.
Beatty is taking the trial very cool- '
[y. He does not show any signs of i
fear and is apparently confident of
his acquittal. 4 ., ^ ;

THE COMMITTEE WILL ACQUIESCE
IN WHATEVER
THE PRESIDENT DESIRES.
1
rHERE IS NO PERSONAL OBJECTION
TO MR. CORTELYOU? !
IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF
HAVING AN EXPERIENCED
MAN.
CHICAGO, III.. June 1 K.?If Cortel- ,
/on is to bo elected Chairman of the 1
National Committee it is absolutely )
jssential that he come to Chicago at :
>nce.
Thai, is the substance of a telegram 1
hat has been sent to President ,
Roosevelt by Congressman Littauer, .
>f New York, after a careful sizing ?
ip of the strength of the opposition
;o Mr. Cortelyou's selection. This j
iall for assistance is stemming the ]
ide of antagonism in itself shows
he intensity of feeling among the
nemhers of the national committee
vho believe that a practical man 1
honld be chosen to run the cam- *
)aign. Mr. Cortelyou is now in Mass- '
ichusetts. It is possible that he may
ome here before convention assern- 1
des. Senator Lodge, of Massachu- ''
?etts, and Cornelius N. Bli^s, who is *
o be treasurer of the national com- }
nittee, both of whom fully approve
he President's choice of Mr. Cortel- 5
on, are expected here to-day or to- 1
nor row.
Their arrival oil the ground may
create a change in the present sen- *
iment. As personal representatives j
>f teh President, they will be able to ]
jive definite assurances to the mem- ]
jers of the national committee as to j
>f the President, they will be able to
'f the President is determined ? to
lave Cortelyou, it is certain that the
national committee will acquiesce.
The committee will not fight the
President on this question, whatever ^
ts members may think of the wislom
of his choice. '

The Monongah Gfass Company's
Plant Is Nearing Completion.
The Monongah Glass Co.'s plant
which was so exhaustively described
in the West Virginian some. weeks
since, is nearing completion. The
floors, some of stone ad some of

The most serious thing they have to
contend with is the absence of city
water, which the Board of Trade is
now endeavoring to get for them.
