Violence Feared at Cherry, 111., When
Dead Are Recovered.
Cherry, 111., Nov. 17. Troops have
been called to prevent any untoward
demonstration at the St. Paul coal mine
when bodies of the 300 men entombed
by Saturday's catastrophe are brought
to the surface. Sheriff Skoglund, ot
Bureau county, with authority from
State's Attorney Eckhart, telegraphed
to Springfield late .yesterday, asking
Governor Deneen to send several com
panies of state militia. So far no vio
lence has been displayed and State's
Attorney Eckhart hopes by the pres
ence of a small guard to prevent any
ill-advised move on the part of tbe
miners, whose feelings have been
wrought up by the loss of their com
When the bodies will be brought to
the surface is doubtful. Xone of the
oflicials believe any of the 300 en
tombed men are alive. I he subter
ranean fires yesterday were more in
tense than when tho men were en
trapped and no efforts could be made
to enter the mine.
Fire Chief lioran, of Chicago, arrived
with a supply of hose and chemical
fire extinguishers. The seal over the
mouth of the shaft was perforated and
it was intended to force water and
chemicals down through pipes. A ther
mometer in the sand on top of the seal
showed a temperature of 110 degrees,
indicating that heat in the interior of
the mine was itense. Chief Horan
shook his head.
"It's no use," he said, "to lift the
lid, as it would mean that the whole
mine would blaze up and there would
no possibility of recovering even
bodies. The coal deposits would
take fire and the timber supports wouid
crumble. Perhaps another shaft will
have to be dug to recover the remains

Hawaii Naval Station to Be Greatest
In Pacific' Ocean.
Washington, Nov. 13. The president
has approved the recommendation of
the joint army and navy board for
making Pearl harbor, In the Hawaiian
Islands, the greatest naval station in
the Pacific. In doing this, it was con
sidered that a temporary naval station
only would be constructed at Olongapo,
and that the proposed improvement in
Manila harbor would be abandoned.
This will leave the protection of the
ports to the army.
The determination to minimize the
fortification, in the Philippines and to
make I'eurl harbor a great naval sta
tion was not because of any intention
of withdrawing American control from
the islands. It was purofv strategical,
it was said. For years a fierce contro
versy has been waged as to whether
tho principal fortification in the Phil
ippines should be located at Olongapo
or lavite. lue naval onicers favored
Olongapo and tho army Manila bay.
The big floating dock is now at Olon

be retained there.

on each acre in 40 years and these will
