APARTMENT IN FLAMES POLICE BLAME PYROMANIAC FOR TENEMENT HOLOCAUST. CHILDREN LEAP TO DEATH WHEN BUILDING IS BURNED. New York. Fifteen persons, most of them children, lost their lives in a fire believed by city officials to be the work of a pyrouianlac. The flumes swept with murderous suddenness from cellar to attic of a five-story brick tenement at Lexington avenue and One Hundred and Tenth street. In the thickly populated East Side. The blaze apparently started In a baby car riage under the stairs in a lower hall under almost identical circumstances as the recent incendiary fire In an up per West Side apartment house, which resulted in seven deaths. So quickly did the flames shoot through the build ing that a number of the dead were found in bed, burned or suffocated without the slightest opportunity to es cape. In the confusion that followed '.he cry of "fire" there were many thrilling rescues. Families were separated as they ran from their rooms and chil dren were forgot ton in the general panic. Norman Goldfarb, who lived on the first floor with his wife and two children, got them out of the burning building. He then returned and brought out several women and children, who had beeu overcome by smoke. Many others were rescued by fire men, who ran ladders against the front of the building just in time to prevent them from throwing themselves from windows. The sleeping occupants were awak ened to find escape by the stairways cut off and the halls filled with flames and choking smoke. Several were hurt jumping from windows. Nathan Silver and four of his chil dren were among the victims. Mrs. Silver escaped. Mr. and Mrs. Abru-! ham Matilsky and Sidney and Catli 1 erine Sugarman, brother and sister of Mrs. Matilsky, also perished.

When lie returned the whole building, the ground floor of which is occupied by stores, was a mass of flames, and exit by the stair ways was cut off. Most of the per sons on the second floor made their way down fire escapes, but those on upper floors had to struggle through smoke and flames pouring out the windows. Several tenants, perched on upper story windows, threatened to jump, but were prevailed upon by firemen to remain until ladders could be raised to take them down. One aged woman, Mrs. Mary Inglass, disregarded the warning and leaped from the fourth floor, receiving injuries which prob ably will cause her death. While the firemen were at work on the second floor and preparing to ; fight their way to the third floor, this floor collapsed, but not before a warn ing roar had sent the firemen to safety.

It is noticeable that Lord Carson's name does r.ot appear in the new min istry. Viscount Cave becoming lord high chancellor. The attorney general, Douglas Mc Garel Hogg, is new to his office'; he was formerly closely associated with Lord Carson. His wife Is the daughter of Judge Trimble Brown of Nashville, Tenn., and widow of the Hon. A. J. Marjoribanks. The new cabinet was officially an nounced as follows: Lord president of the council.

EX-PREMIER ON TOUR WELSHMAN IS WELCOMED WARM LY IN ALL CITIES VISITED. CARLTON CLUB IS ASSAILED BY DAVID LLOYD GEORGE IN ADDRESS. Leeds. England. A great crowd wel comed David '.oyd George and his party on their arrival here by special train. Mr. LI-vJ George delivered five speeches at various railway sta tions on the way here from London, and everywhere was greeted warmly. At Wellingborough the retiring pre mier compared himself to Lord Chan ning, who once represented that con stituency. Channing, lie said, had fought similar battles for liberty and fair play. 'T invite your support in a battle fjr national interests," Mr. Lloyd George told nu audience at Kettering. At Leicester he said : "You probably have heard that the..' don't like me at the Carlton Club. The fact seems to have added to my num ber of friends, not only at Leicester, but all along the route. I have never witnessed such remarkable demonstra tions. "We won the war together and peace was being helped by all sections. We were pulling through together, and now the new Carlton Club orders 'par ty first.' " "No wonder some of the ablest and most experienced leaders of the Con servative party protested against that order and declined to carry it out." The Liberal association at Notting ham presented Mr. Lloyd George with an address, to which the little Welsh man replied that lie was standing for national unity, while at Sheffield lie told the crowd that gathered about his car that the Carlton Club had delib erately wrecked the organization which won the war. London. In the still highly specula tive political situation, only two facts stood out as definite that there will be almost Immediately a general elec tion and that parliamentary ratifica tion of the Irish constitution is safe ly assured.

BONAR LAW WINS VOTE OF PARTY LLOYD GEORGE TAKES LEAVE OF KING NEW PREMIER AND AIDES INSTALLED. CABINET BACKS TREATY NEW CABINET TO BACK TREATY FOR FREE IRELAND PAR LIAMENT DISSOLVED. London. Andrew Bonar Law. in the traditional phrase of the court circu lar, "kissed hands upon his appoint ment as prime minister and first lord of the treasury," and thus became England's first Canadian-born premier. One day was devoted to the formali ties necessary in a monarchical coun try to a change in the government. The king gave audience to and took formal leave of the outgoing prime minister, Mr. Lloyd George. Then came the Unionist meeting when Mr. Bonar Law was unanimously elected leader of the party. This was followed by an audience at Buckingham palace, when Mr. Bonar Law, at the king's invita tion, undertook to form a new adminis tration. The king held a privy council for the swearing in of the new ministers. The king on the advice of the prime min ister proclaimed the dissolution of Parliament and, according to present arrangements, elections will be held Nov. 15. Mr. Bonar Law is understood to have liis cabinet list almost complet ed, and it is expected the composition of the ministry will be announced soon. It is the almost universal opin ion that lie succeeds to a most diffi cult and onerous task and many mis givings are heard as to whether his health will stand the inevitable strain, but he has made it quite clear that if he finds his health unequal to the task he shall be allowed quietly to step aside. The situation is unique in the an nals of British election politics, inas much as only a short time before the election date none of the leaders has yet announced his policy ; each side appears to be waiting on the other. Mr. Lloyd George's opponents are making merry with the suggestion that the sword he announced himself as brandishing when he left London re cently must have been lost somewhere on the way to Leeds. The only real question before the electorate is whether they wisli to be governed by a coalition. But that cannot properly be described as an election plank, because, except in the quite anticipated result of a tremen dous landslide in favor of one partic ular party, it is almost certain that no party will be returned strong enough to form a government without the co operation of some other party. Mr. Bonar Law confirms that Ire land is an t.greed question, nnd he fur ther intimated clearly and frankly at the Unionist meeting that tariff reform or protection would not form an item of his policy. And since Mr. Lloyd George lias announced himself as a free trader, this question cannot come to the front, as both the Liberal and Labor parties are in favor of free trade. The prime minister promises' to define his policy in his coming speech at Glasgow, but judging from liis remarks it will not be of an event ful character. Previous to the breakdown of his health, which forced him temporarily to retire from politics, Mr. Bonar Law was a very close friend of Mr. Lloyd George and was identified with the en tire coalition policy. It therefore is practically impossible that he can in any important measure reverse this policy. Thus, unless Mr. Lloyd George should take a strong turn in his policy, there will be little difference between the policies of the two men. The contest seems likely to be one of personalities of men, rather than measures, so far as these two parties are concerned. The Free Liberals and the Laborites have, of course, well de fined policies, and, according to pres ent indications, are opposed resolutely to any co-operation with Lloyd George, even should the former premier seek reconciliation with either of them. Weeks Warns America. New York. Fear that America is "drifting back to its shortsighted, care less and happy-go-lucky attitude of the early days of the European war toward the 'vitally important' matter of preparedness," was expressed by Secretary of War Weeks in an address before the New York post of the Army Ordnance Association. "I have no pa tience," he declared, "with the groups of silly pacifists in this country." Liquor Injunction Sought. Washington.
