The lava bids were too hot and clouds of poisonous fumes too dense to allow a complete exploration of the Island by .sailors from the warshi', in Kagoshima bay. but it v.a.s concluded that no human beintr could have es caped the deadly fusilade from ratrrs. The eruption? of the volcano abated Friday although lava was t he had still flowing from the mountain. The phy sical aspects of the Island have been completely hanged. Examination of the city of Kagoshima which was overwhelmed by earthquake fire ami tidal waves show that many corpses are still beneath the ruins and vigo rous sanitary precautions must be taken to prevent an epidemic of dis ease. The thirty-three persons, men and women, who were rescued Thursday from a cave. were nearly starved when found by a band of sailors from a Japanese warship. So far as is known these are the only persons caught on ?akura when the volcano burst into eruption who escaped death. There were 15,000 inhabitants. Five thousand of them escaped to the mainland during the day of January 12 before Eukura shima burst into full eruption. A few hundred are supposed to have es caped in small boats In the first nouns of the disaster, although many of these boats were swamped. Early this morning one of the war ships which arrived in Kagoshima. in the night with provisions for the starving nnd homeless persons of this city, lowered a small boat to .skirt the Island looking for possible surviv ors.

There was no sign of human dwelling or vegetation, nothing but a desolation of smoking ashes and molten lava covering the isla nd. At noon the searching party was attracted by the waving of an impro vised Hag-. The boat put to shore. Three hundred feet inland could be seen a group of survivors beckoning for help and calling faintly. The sailors dug and wailed their way to the cave's entrance. They bad to earn' the men and women back to the boat because they were exhausted and weakened from lack of food and water Among them was a school master who had taken with him from his school a portrait of the emperor. There were also the village policemen wha had saved the records ef the station house, and the postal elerk with a small bag of mail. Taken m Ship. The rescued were taken on board the warship and provided with food and drink. From them came the first graphic stories of men. women and children overcome In their at tempted Might. Many persons, they said, were struck down by falling volcanic rocks and hundreds of per sons were caught In rushing streams of boiling lava and seen no more. They themselves had taken refuge in the cave until the rain of ashes and lava had ceased. They were then unable to venture forth, being ma rooned by half cooled lava and ash?s. Many of the people of Kagoshima have returned to tind their homes de stroyed and the cit.v without provi sions. They are being" cared for by the amiser squadron. Camps have turn set up in the open spaces for the survivors to sleep in. Th" general volcanic activity on th Island of Kiushiu is gradually abating.

Mac Donald of the Twelfth Michigan dis trict with a "traitorous insult" to the state. Gov. Ferris' telegram was as fol lows: "Sen. Ashurt is reported to have quoted the Michigan congressman from the. Twelfth district a saying: " 'District the Twelfth of Michigan is a part of the U.
