Chief From Arizona Appeals
to Taft to Abolish Schools
and Teachers.
Washington, D. C., March 27. Chief
Yukeoma, a thin, dried up looking 'lit
tle Hop! Indian from the Moqui reser
vation In Arizona, clad in the trappings
of his tribe and -stubbornly protest-
ing against the march of civilization,
appeared at the white house today, to
tnake a plea to president Taftin behalf
of himself and several hundred tribes-
men to be left alone. The aged little j
Indian s speech interpreted as follows: !
"Oh the Great White Father, my
people want to live as In the days of
old before the pale faces- took from us j
land that was ours. "We don't want
schools and school teachers. "We want
to be let alone and live as we wish, to
roam free without the white men al
ways there to tell us what we can do
and what we cannot do."
Yukeoma's beady little black eyes
were sadder than ever when he left
the white house, for the president told
him the schools could not be abolished
and the teachers must continue their
work on the reservation.

The New York Fire Horror
Was Started, by a Gigaret
Thrown Under Table.
New Tork. N. Y., March 27. Eighty
six oodles of the 141 victims of the
fire in a ten story loft building ia
Washington Place Saturday have been
identified. Sixteen of the bodies were
men. ,
1 District attorney Whitman has
started an official investigation to fix
the responsibility for the horror. The
building department has been called
upon for a report on the "burned build
ing and every other department in any
way concerned will be required to
make a detailed report.
It is now definitely known that the
r? oo-oi rm fh(t plsrhtli floor under
a cutting table in a scrap heap and
is thought to have been started by a
cigaret. N ,
Great crowds assembled at -tne
morgue this morning to view the
bodies, 52 in all. At least half of the
corpses are unrecognized and only -a
small trinket or a shred of clothing
will help to show who the unfortunates
were. Some bodies may never be
claimed. ,
The fact that there was onlj one
fire escape on the building wall be
rigidly investigated. Relief contribu
tions are pouring in. They are beaded
by mayor Gaynor with 100. In the
midst of all this comes the ominous
declaration of fire chief Croker: Give
us not merely fire proof, but death
'proof buildings."
Greater Disasters Feared.
This is the slogan started hy him
and which bids fair to become a mu
nicipal issue. "I do not hesitate to
say a more appalling loss of life m

ment, because -of lack of safeguards.
Fire Insurance men are inclined to

the number of lenqwn dead at 141,

Dead Are All Removed
Careful counting still 'rates the fe
male victims, young and old, at ap
proximately 10 to -every one malo.
With all the dead removed from -he
building, the coroner "began an inves
tigation into the disaster one of sev
eral inquiries which will be conducted
by city departments aided by agents
from the district attorney's office.
District attorney Whitman announced
that those responsible for the loss of
.life would "be rigorously prosecuted.
On Thursday night a mass meeting
will be held at Cooper Union to agi--ate
for more adequate protection of
o-called fireproof buildings.
Will Relieve Distress.
The United Hebrew charities and the
Hebrew free burial societies have an
nounced that they were ready to re
lieve any distress caused "by the fire.
The Independent Order of B'Nai B'ritfc
has opered a subscription fund
throughout New York, Massachusetts,
Connecticut, Rhode Island and a por
tion of Canada for the sufferers. Di
rectors of the Metropolitan opera house
have offered the building free for a
benefit performance. Dr. Geo. M. Price,
chairman of an investigation commit
tee .appointed by .the Cloak, Suit and
Shirt industry of New York, last Sep
tember, to investigate and remedy un
sanitary and protective conditions af
fecting members of that union, gave
out a statement with a long list of
factory buildings which he says fall
to comply with fire regulations. -.
Disaster Was Expected.
"What was expected 'happened," says
the statement. "Those who knew of
the flimsy fire protection iri the loft
buildings of New York Iqng .ago pre
dicted such a disaster as occurred in
Washington Place- If, however, this
huilding was the only one of those un
protected the situation would not be
so terrible. But the fact is there is
hardly a large loft building In New
York which is better protected aaginst
fire." . x
In -a statement to the press, borough
president McAneny said that 300 fire
men, recently detailed by fire commis
sioner Waldo for the purpose, reported
3500 buildings' lacking adequate fire
escapes. The building department has
already investigated 700 of these 3500
cases and reported that only 10 per
ont nf them wer in violation of the
huilding code. The Asch building,, in
which Saturday's disaster occurred,
had not been reached among the cases
reported by the fire department. Mr.
McAneny urged a thorough revision
of the code, leaving the provisions rel
ative to fire escapes to a commission
of building and fire experts to be ap
pointed by the city.

Mexican President Fails to
Give Recognition to the
y Mexico City, Mexico, March
& 27. The impression is grow-
& ing today that some changes
$ are to be made in the proposed
& new cabinet. The official an-
$ nouncement will be made late
this afternoon by the sub-sec-
retary of state, who has been
& in conference with president
Diaz since early this morning.
& For secretary of the Interior
the chances are said to favor
senor Don Teodoro Dehesa,
now governor of the state of
&- Veracruz. Dehesa was candi-
fp date for vice president on the
$- Reyes ticket at the last gen-
&i eral election.
Mexico City, March 27. Although no
one has yet been selected by the gov
ernment to take the place of Gen.
Manuel Gonzales Cosio as minister of
war, there is a growing belief that
Gen. Barnardo Reyes ultimately will
occupy that post in the new Diaz cab
inet. That Gen. Reyes soon will return to
this country from Paris is conceded
generally and a semi-official statement
has been "made that he will be given
a Command in the army, perhaps In
charge of the campaign against the
rebels in the north. After the close of
the war, Gen. Reyes will be called
to the capital and placed in charge of
the war department, it is reported.
Few believe that it is the Intention
of the government to retain Gen. Co
sio permanently as minister of war.
He has an excellent record as a sol
dier, but he is an old man who has
been known to express a desire to re
tire from public life.
The New Cabinet. .
In the- -new cabinet tnere is" noman
who is avowedly a Maderista but on
the other hand, there is no new man who
has figured prominently in administra
tion affairs.
Judge Hemtreo Sodi, the man select
ed as the .head of the department of
justice. Is one of the most noted jur
ists of Mexico: He has held the chief
justiceship and is now a member of
the supreme court. Among the mem
bers of the legal profession his selec
tion ha given keen satisfaction.
Norbeto Domlnguez, the successor
of Leandro, Fernandez as the secre
tarj' of the department of public
works and communications, has been
postmaster general, and it is said that
under his direction the postal service
of the country has been improved. The
p'ostoffice department reports to the
department of communications so Mr.
Domlnguez may be considered as one
having had preliminary training for
his new work.
Manuel Marrouquln y Rivera, the
successor of Olegario Molina, as min
ister of the department of fomento,
was selected on account of his ability
as an engineer. It was he who design
ed the new waterworks system for
Mexico City, and' who has been Identi
fied with its instalation.
Jorge Vera Estanol, who succeeds
Justo Sierra as minister of education,
follows a man who has placed Mex
ico's public school system on a high
It is not impossible that when the
formal announcement of the person
nel of the new cabinet is made, changes
may be- made in the list selected, but
such is not expected.

San Antonio, Tex., March 27. Maj.
George S. Squier of the signal corps
has returned to the maneuver camp
after a week's horseback trip along
the Rio Grande for the purpose of es

Mexico City; Mex., -March 27. The
first ray of promise has occurred with
the cabinet resignation.
This action Is also 'taken as' an in

Situation Looks Grave.
Outside of these palpable inclinations
toward a cessa'tfon of reactionary pol
icy, the situation here looks very
grave. It is evident that diplomatic
pressure is being used to arouse the
government to prompt, and effective
action. The failure of Limantour to
present any definite project of peace
has caused a depression of public sen
timent. From an official source I learn that
Limantour and" president Diaz have not'
been in accord, and attempts to tell
the president, the truth about condi
tions have made little impression on

from top to bottom in efforts to secure

whatsoever; in fact, the men went

was most genteel in the search of the
premises. One of the invaders acci

apologetic to the inmates for his seem
ing awkwardness and offered to pay
for the damage, which was refused.
The men secured five rifles, ammu

The telegraph states that a boy was
sent by the rebels with a message to
