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.

BEARER OF HISTORIC
NAME ON TRIAL TODAY
Calhoun, Grandson of States
man, Accused of Bribery.
8ms Francisco, Jan. 11.—-This city
witnessed today the unusual spectacle
of the calling for trial on a criminal
charge of a grandson of a vice presi
dent of the United States and the
bearer of one of the greatest names
in the history of American statesman
The accused man is Patrick Calhoun
of New York, San Francisco, Cleve
land, Pittsburg and other cities, grand
son of John C. Calhoun and probably
the most prominent figure in the
street railroad world of the United
atates. The charge against Calhoun
is bribery In connection with the
granting of a franchise to his San
Francisco company by the board of
supervisors. The case was called be
fore Judge William Patrick Lawlor in
the superior court.
Calhoun is president of the United
Railroads of San Francisco. The brib
ery with which his name is connected
has caused the conviction and sen
tence to imprisonment of Abraham
Ruef, former "boss" of San Francisco,
and Eugene Scbmitz, former mayor
of the city.
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. The basic idea Is sound,
whatever Is to be said for the state
farm detail of the plan, says the Bos
ton Advertiser. The only way to meet
the tramp evil is by making the tramp
work even If he is detained but twelve
hours. It Is a problem in Massachu
setts quite as much as in New York.

Tassel Earrings a New Freak.
This is a freak season for Jewels
Quaint, old fashioned rings have been
as popular as the old fashioned pend
ent earrings, which have been gener
ally worn, thoticrh they seem to add
years to the most youthful face. Now
the craze for fancy jewelry has taken
the form of tassel earrings. These are
seen usually as seed pearls in tassels
at drop an inch or two from the
ears. They are even more barbaric In
effect than the pendent pearls and
diamonds and also tend to rob the
wearer of the appearance of vonth.
