Paris. Jan. l.V No olio outside of

decision to keep the proceedings of

information divulged to olliclal state

American delegates and even Presi

lias been believed hero by persons
close to Wilson that ho would contend
for an open session so far as possible.

adopted a resolution I hut noihluc'

except what was contained in the col-

Pome of those connected with the
conference construe the resolution as
moaning that they are to be burred
from seeing members of the press.
The w hole spirit of the action taken j
is contrary in every respect to the as
surance giveu to the American peo
p'e. and already a feeling discour
agement and indignation Is displayed
among the newspaper representatives
from aiiie-1 countries. The liritish
correspondents made a formal protest,
which was barked immediately by tho
A merles n correspondents.
Outside of this new and most seri
ous cause of complaint ihe American
corrwiKndenis feel that they ure not
netting a f.mare deal in obtaining in
formal ion from the American delega
tion. The dally conferences between
the correspondents and members of
the delegation are unproductive In i
every way, and the conclusion h.i
been forced upon the correspondents
that tho only source of news concern
in i? American participation in the
peace negotiations is the President,
who is inaccessible.
In rpite of condemnation whil the
war was on the secret methods pre
vailing at Hie Congress of Vlenua, he
ccnc'nsion is being forced upon ob

Paris.- Jan. 13. Tho question of
whether the Peace Conference is to

and ears of the wrrUI, the settlement
of which has been long awaited, was
brought to a fof;iis today when it was
announced that un agreement had
been made to eonline the Information

agreement prevailed among the dolu
gatcs not to discuss or in any way

Eight Bodies Removed From

,Po6sible Cause Is Fermentation of Mo

Huston. Jan. l.V Several persona
were killed by the explosion of a
tank of molasses at the plant of a dis
ti ling company on Commercial street
today. ,
Hoston, Jan. 15 Probably a dozen
people were killed and fifty injured by
the explosion of a huge tank of mo

cial street, near Keany. Kcpiaro loday.
A large numner of the' Injured were
taken to the lelief hospital. The tank
was owned by rhe i'urity Distilling

States Industrial Alcohol company.
A mutlled roar gave but an Instant'

The greatest morta'ity apparently

The intervening elevated railway
undoubtedly prevented further de

The causo of the explosion had not
been definitely determined tonight
Walter I.. W'edaer, explosive expert
of tiie state po'he, said that he was
not prepared to give a final opinion

that Ii resulted from gas fumes gem-rated
by fermenting molasses within
