BODIES RECOVERED BADLY MUTILATED Twnly-OM Men Perished !n Illi nois n'iiie Erosion. Duquolr., 111., Jan. 12.—With the re oovery of additional bodies it is thought that all of the victims of the explosion at tho Letter mine in Zelg ler have been accounted for. Most of the bodies are so mutilated that iden tilication is difficult. Four of the vic tims wero negroes, four were Amer icans and thirteen were foreigners. Of the twenty-four men at work In the mine only three escaped. Efforts to establish the cause of the disaster are being made, but thus far few of tho theorists agree. Experts who had inspected the miue after the recent fire in it declared it safe and full preparations for a resumption of mining had been made. The men killed were cleaning up the last of the debris left by the tire fighters. The most widely accepted theory re garding the explosion regards it as the result of ilredamp leaking from the sealed portion of the mine and coin ing in contact with a spark from an electric trolley. There was but little damage to the workings and it is like ly that operations will be resumed as planned at an early date. Field's Estate Worth $83,000,000.

Making Tramps Work. state farm for tramps is proposed by Joseph C. Baldwin, Jr., of the New York state board of charities, and he Intends to place the matter before the legislature. IJis plan is to have tramps detained for a long period and made to work, rendering the institution self supporting. Baldwin believes tramp9 will eventually leave the state rather than work.
