POUND IN THE RUINS
Several Bodies Recovered
From Tarrant Fire.

NEW YORK. Oct SO. All the efforts
of the authorities are now directed to
cleaning away the debris of the Tarrant
and other buildings wrecked by the great
explosion of yesterday in the desire to find
out how many bodies are buried in them
and to ascertain the cause of Jhe explo
sion. The efforts of the searchers for the
dead were rewarded tonight by the flnd
v insr of the remains of H. C A. Schmidt,
of Brooklyn, and the discovery of what
seem to be the bodies of three other peo
ple. Schmidt was an engraver, and had
an office on the first floor of 101 Warren
street. The body could be seen pinned
down under a mass of twisted iron, but
could not be cotten out tonight. The
identification was made by a nephew of
At the .northwest corner of the Tarrant
building, at "Warren and Greenwich
streets, a mass of clothing and indiscrimi
nate articles were found, said to be the
bodies of three people. The firemen went
to work with a will to dig out the mass,
csvd at ID o'clock tonight brought to light
a portion of a woman's foot and the top
of a crushed skulL The skull had long
brown hair attached, and is supposed to
be that of a woman. During the day
Superintendent Dooner had a very large
force of men working as hard as possible
tearing down piles of debris and .removing
it The fire burned all day, and toward
night was practically to the end of the
debris at Washington and Warren streets.
The fire extends back for some distance,
and is burning fiercely.
One hundred and eighty patrolmen under
Captain Wcstervelt and Inspector Brooks
were stationed at the ruins at 6 o'clock,
rollevlng the day foroe. Both Inspector
(Brooks and Captain Westervelt were
skeptical over the reported large loss of
life. They both said that they did not ex
pect that more than four or five bodies
would be found in the ruins. Playing on
the still burning ruins were four engines,
and they kept their streams going con
tinuously. A revised list made up to 10 o'clock to
night shows 34 persons still missing.
At 10:30 o'clock a portion of a human
trunk, probably the abdomen, was dug
out, and a little later a brown canvas
coat There was nothlmr in the pockets
but four quill toothpicks. StilL later the
firemen found another portion of a skull
and a portion of a human back. Dr.
Cromer, of the Health Department who
examined the remains, said they were
probably all from the same person, as
were the foot and a portion of a skull
found earlier. The remains were all
found in the Tarrant building.
Superintendent of Buildings Dooner had
1000 men at work as soon as daylight ap
peared. He declared that a dozen build
ings would have to be torn down.
"The force of the explosion has Im
paired many buildings in the vicinity," ho
said. 'I cannot think of letting men work
in them while there is a possibility that
they may come down- 1 believe the
buildings along the south side of Cham
bers street from Greenwich to Washing
ton streets, -end on Washington street
from 'Chambers to Warren streets, have
been made unfit for occupancy. Forty
buildings were damaged by the explosion.
I place the property' loss at $2,000,000.
Dr. Feeney, chief Inspector of the Health
Department was at the scene of the ex
"This havoc was never wrought by ben
sine or naphtha." he said. "I believe K
"was nitroglycerin. It is used very
largely nowadays by physicians as a heart
stimulant, and Tarrant & Co., as wholesale
druggists, would have had to supply it
If Tarrant & Co. had 25 pounds of nitro
glycerin in their place it would have
blown a building like theirs into frag
ments." George E. Hurray, Inspector of combus
tibles, gave out the following state
ment: "It is my opinion that the explosion was
due to chemical action which took place
during the compounding of drugs. Just
what the exact cause was we cannot tell
Tintil we can get the formulas used In com
pounding, and can get the employes on the
witness ' stand before the Fire Marshal.
The company had a permit to store collo
dion, ether and phosphorus in small
quantities, & barrel of alcohol, two gal
lons of benzine, one carboy of sulphurltlc
acid, and ione carboy of nitric acid. If
all these should blow up together I do
not think it would make such a terrific ex
plosion. I am of the opinion that the
-explosion was due to chemical changes."
President Thomas F. Mayn, of Tarrant
&. Co., said today;
1n our own stock we had no ether, or
et most not more than a few pounds. We
had no benzine and no collodion. When
we needed any of these articles to fill or
ders we bought them from dealers. We
had very little alcohol in stock, notwith
standing the fact that we use a consid
erable quantity in making our perfumes.
We had absolutely no nitroglycerin and
"All our employes but two have been ac
counted for. We employed 20 men and
IS women. William Moorehouse, a ship
ping clerk, and a boy who was employed
on an upper floor, are missing."
The damage to the Ninth-Avenue ele
vated road is largely superficial, and can
be readily repaired. All but five of the-
Injured who were taken to the Hudson
Street House of Belief were discharged
"this morning, and those who remained
were reported out of danger. The seven
Injured at Governeur Hospital are still
there, but are out of danger.
Just before midnight a workman found
a black cheviot coat in the exact spot
where the human remains had been found.
In the pockets were 4 cents and an appli
cation for membership In the West End
Republican Club. Shortly afterward. In
the same place, an unrecognizable mass
of human flesh was found. A half coat
was also found in this place.

Charles Francis Buckley, son of the
proprietor of the Home Made Hotel, said ;
toaay tnat wnen tne explosion occurred.
18 men, and women, known as the "night j
shift," were asleep on the top floor of
the hotel. There werealso many men and
women "who live out of the city who
registered at the hotel. No one knows
whether these patrons escaped, because
few if any of them have relatives or
friends here. Of the employes who were
asleep, the womeri were mostly Irish and
German girls, who have recently come
to this country. They have no friends
and no home outside of the hotel, and
there is no one to Inquire for them if
they are missing.
Far Into the night, while the work of
digging continued, hundreds of men,
women and children with anxious faces
pushed against the police lines and begged
admittance. The bureau of information
established at the Leonard-street Station
was nothing to these anxious folk. The
promise made them by the Sergeant to
let them know when there was news,
either good or bad, did not satisfy their
grief. All through the tfay and into the
night these anxious men, women and chil
dren stood, growing more anxious as
JACK KANE KNOCKED OUT.
Kid Parker Brought the Fight to an
End in the Fifth Round.
DENVER, Oct 30. Before the Olympic
Club tonight "Kid" Parker, of Denver,
knocked out Jack Kane, of San Francis
co, in the fifth round of what was to
have been a 10-round go. The fighting
was fast and furious after the first round.
Kane went to the floor for nine seconds
in the fourth round, and again in the
fifth round before the finish came. He put
up a wonderfully game fight- In the fifth
round Kane came up weak, and Parker
started after him with right and left
swings to the chin, nose and head, with
an occasional stiff right straight to the
heart Kane went down again for nine
seconds. With blood all over his face and
breast Kane rose slowly to his feet and
shot his right to Parker's head, following
it -with leflts and right to the body and
head, dazing the Denver boy. It looked
as though Kane had secured a new leaso
on life, and the crowd went wild with
excitement but the Kid began again to
make a punching bag of Kane's head, and
gradually wore him down so that ho
could not hold up his arms to defend him
self, finally falling over on to the mat,
where Referee Cullln counted him out
Kane got up and dragged himself to his

The Nenv Cup Defender.
NEW YORK, Oct 30. While the per
sonnel of the syndicate formed to build
the new defender of the America's cup
Is still withheld, the syndicate Is com
plete. No difficulty was found in obtain
ing the amount of money necessary to
build, equip and maintain the yacht, and
very few obstacles of any character have
been encountered up to this time. Vice
Commodore August Belmont and Cornel
ius Vanderbllt will be among the syn
dicate members, and the others will bo
also prominent In the yachting world.
There Is good reason for saying that the
Herreshoffs will scon start the new ves
sel, and, unless something unforeseen
occurs, the new boat will be in the water
the latter part of April and soon after
be ready for a trial. This will give those
in charge more than three months to put
.her In the perfect condition she should
be for the international races.

00M PAUL IN " EUROPE
KRUGBR WIM, BEJ TREATED CIV
rJLIr WHEREVER. HE GOES.
Bnt the -Powers Will Take Pains Not
to Give Offense to' En gland
PARlSv Oct SO. Foreign Office officials
believe President Kruger will travel in
cognito during Mb visit to the European
capitals, relinquishing it in each city only
long enough to permit an exchange of
visits between Mr. Kruger and the head
of the nation. His stay In Paris will not
exceed 48 hours, and possibly only 24. Tha
French Government will not offer Mr.
Kruger any formal function, though it
is expected the city will tender him a
demonstration which, will be a scene of
enthusiasm. The government will not
take part in the reoeptlon, but will not
put any obstacles In, the way of private
plans of welcome. In short, the govern
ment will not take any steps likely to
be construed as an offense to Great Brit
ain, though It is certain President Dou
bet and Mr. Kruger will exchange visits.
The same proceeding, it Is believed, will
be followed at each European capital vis
ited. Disposition of American Prisoners.
LONDON, Oct 30. The report that Lord
Salisbury has notified the United States
Ambassador, Joseph Choate, that the
British authorities will release all tbe
American prisoners In Ceylon, South Af
rica and St Helena is incorrect. Mr.
Choate has not been notified of their
approaching release, nor have any rep
resentations been made to that end by
the United States Embassy here. All that
has been done consists In an exchange of
communications regarding their Identity
and the destination of American civilians
deported from the Transvaal and sent
home at the expense of the British Gov
ernment Destruction at Dothaville.
CRADDOCK, Cape Colony, Oct 30. The
Dutch Church Is the only building left

BRITISH FOREIGN OFFICE.
Salisbury Will Turn the Secretary
ship Over to Lansdowne..
LONDON, Oct. 31. The following im
portant announcement appears thlB morn
ing in the Dally Telegraphy
"We understand that, after mature con
sideration, Lord Salisbury has decided to
resign the Foreign Secretaryship, which
will be transferred to the Marquis of
Lansdowne. Although the health of the
Prime Minister gives no cause for anxi
ety, we believe that he is largely Influ
enced by the counsels of his medical ao
visers." ' ,
Referring editorially to the appointment
of the Marquis of Lansdowne to the
Foreign Office; the JDaily Telegraph ap
proves It, j:esjeclally In view of. the fact
mat j-.ora Salisbury's Influence will still
preside over the foreign policy of Great
Britain." , .
Lord Salisbury came to London yester
day and paid a long visit to the Foreign
Office, where he received Lord Lansdowne
and, after him, the Duke of Devonshire.
In the afternoon, he held the customary
reception of members of the diplomatic
corps, among those present being M, De
Staal, the Russian Ambassador Paul
Cambon, the French Ambassador; -Count
Von Hatzfeldt-Wildenburg, the German
Ambassador, and Mr: Choate, the United
States Ambassador. He remained until a
late hour at the Foreign Ofllce, and then
went directly to Hatfield House.
There is little doubt that the Daily Tel
egraph's information" is correct. The ap
pointment of Lord Lansdowne," whose
control of the War Office -has been so
severely condemned, will probably cause
some dissatisfaction, The Times con
llrms the statement of the Telegraph that
Lord Salisbury will give up the Foreign
Office portfolio, but it does not name his
LONDON'S WILD NIGHT.
Morning: Papers Express the Utmost
LONDON, Oct. 30. The morning papers
all express the utmost regret for the
reprehensible scenes, which, as one jour
nal puts It, "threaten, to lower the repu
tation of England In the eyes of foreign
ers and to earn for the British people
unenviaoie characters of taking their
pleasures brutally rather than gladly."
Most of the papers throw the chief
blame upon the authorities for their fail
ure to anticipate what occurred with a
sufficient force of poMce, and above all
for their failure to bring the police upon
the scene early enough.- The Standard
"It is monstrous that a young girl
cannot see bunting or Illuminations -unless
she agrees to submit to the rude
ness of any chance comen Possibly most
people come out for fun and go home
sober; but the majority of brutality is
conspicuous enough to compromise our
reputation as a nation of self-control and
. Others like the Dally Mall frankly de
precate the rowdyism and drunkenness.
and asK whether such demonstrations is
"hoolylsm or patriotism."
A Falling Ministry.
NEW YORK, Oct. 20. A dispatch to the
Times from Parjs says:
"The greater part of the French press
is very hostile In its criticism of Premier
Waldeck-Bousseau's speech at Toulouse.
It Is regarded as too radical and socialistic
In tendency. Papers like Le Temps and
Le Figaro, which represent the great body
of moderate opinion, are especially hostile
and it Is evident that the Premier has
against him many who heretofore sup
ported him. The fall of the present Gov
ernment Is anticipated in a week or two
and the vclose of- the exposition seems to
indicate a period of considerable politi
cal unrest Lively times are anticipated
when the Chambers open November 6.
The universal feellngis that the Govern
ment will not last long."

mated that the' ticket tax will yield $125,000

POWERS CONVICTED ON
Flnley Anderson, a Witness at the
Trial, Declares He Was Paid
to Swear to a Lie.
LOUISVILLE, Ky Oct. 30. The Even
ing Post , today prints an affidavit of
Flnloy B. Anderson, a telegraph opera
tor, who testified against Caleb Powers,
in which Anderson denies certain im
portant statements that he made on the
witness stand in the Powers' trial. An
derson tellB of meeting Attorney Camp
bell, in Cincinnati, and continues in his
"Colonel Campbell told me that Joe
Owens had told him that I said that
Caleb Powers, at the hotel in Barbour
ville, prior to the 25th of January, had
used these words speaking of William
Goebel: 'If we cannot get him killed ana
,it' is necessary, I will kill him myself.'
I said to Mr. Campbell that I had told
no one any such thing, and that Powers
had not made such a statement to me.
Campbell and Owens insisted I had made
such a statement and I afterwards, upon
Campbell's suggestion, sat down and
wrote out a statement, In whloh I in
cluded! the foregoing statement of Pow
ers, which was untrue in every particu
lar, and upon -the trial of Caleb Powers
I swore to it as a fact, when in truth
It was not a fact

conversation with Mr. Campbell, and some
time after that Mr. Arthur Goebel, In his

bourvllle In January, said to me in sub
stance these words, referring to William
Goebel: They say he wears a coat of
mall, but it won't do him any good or
something similar to that. I told Mr. Ar.
thur Goebel that Powers had never said
anything of the sort, in my presence to
my best knowledge. He told me to think
and seb If r could not remember. I couta
not remember such a remark, and I know
that Powers never did make such a re
mark, or anything resembling It In my
presence, but, being urged by Arthur Goe
bel, I Anally concluded to state that he
did make such a statement, and so swore
upon the trial, which testimony was false.
"Before making my statement to Camp
bell, Wharton Golden told me to make It
fis strong as possible, as they (referring
o Campbell and Goebel) would take care
of me and protect mo. I desire now to
say that I never had but one conversation
with Caleb Powers, and that was In rela

the men on the 25th of January, and at
no place was the name of William Goebel
mentioned or referred to in any way or
in any .connection by Caleb Powers.
"I desire furthermore to state that either
upon the occasion of the first conversa

received from him $10 In cash, and since
that conversation I have received from
him, both before and after I was a wit

various sums of money, and I have, since
such conversation with Campbell and Ar

various sums, aggregating about $300, and
upon one occasion ?10 from Justus Goebel.
The last sum I received was on Tuesday,
October 23, 1900, which was $3 given to me
by Colonel Campbell at his office in Cin

Campbell had telephoned to Arthur Goebel
to come to his office, wmlch Goebel did,

Five Men Lost Their Lives and Six
Were Badly Burned.
WILKESBARRE, Pa.. Oct 30. A Heavy
explosion of gas occurred on slope No. 3
of No. 1 shaft of the Kingston Coal Com
pany at Edwardsvllle at 3 o'clock this
afternoon, in which five men lost their
lives and six others were badly burned.
Five of the six Injured are In precarious
condition and it is doubtful if they can
survive. The names of the dead are:
Those believed to be fatally injured are:
Michael Gatorskl, Adam Lotosko, Andrew
Ratouklski, John Bucho and David Evans.
When these men were brought tt the sur
face by the rescuers their skin hung In
shreds from their bodies. The work of
rescue was dangerous as after-damp had
accumulated. . The first rescuing party
that went down the mine was driven
back and two men in the party had to be
carried out The force of the explosion
was so great that, It blew down a great
section of the roof. The accident was
due to an employe who diverted the air
course unwittingly and allowed the gas to
accumulate in the place where the men
were at work.

FINDING A FORTUNE
t A Tramp's Luck and an Ener

It 1st perhaps true, as told, that a tramp,
searching a garbage barrel for scraps of
refuse food, found a fortune in good
United States currency. Such a thing
But the workman who gives up a
steady occupation, however unremunera
tlve, to hunt garbage barrels for a fort

There Is a difference between finding a
fortuno and foundlnar a. fortune. Iftewi

on a certain substantial basis. The
nature of that basis of fortune is well set
forth In the advice given by a successful
merchant to a young roan who asked,
"What is the first requisite to making a
fortune?" "The first requisite to making
a fortune," said the rich man, "Is health.
The idea that fortunes are made suggests
toll and Industry and skill. Nothing can
be made without these. But a weak man
cannot toll, and Industry is incompatible
with ill-health. If you want to bo strong
remember that all physical strength
comes from food, andi that tihe amount of
strength extracted from food depends up
on the ability of the stomach to digest
food and assimilate Its nutrition. The
man who takes care of his digestion Is,
in general, taking care of every other
organ of his body."
Success and the Stomach.
The merchant who gave the above opin
ion may not have been much of a physi
cian, but he was a good deal of a phil
osopher. He had seen men with success
almost within the grasp', break down be-'
cause of "stomach trouble." He had
theorized the saying that the "weakest
must go to the wall" into the saying
that "the man with the weakest stomach
must go to the wall," because no man
Is stronger than his stomach. The man
who will learn this lesson of success has
taken a great stride to his goal. Health
is the first prerequisite of success, and
health in general means a sound stom
ach and1 a good digestion.
Look at the logic of the matter. Food
is a roan's life, his strength. Physical life
Is sustained by food. But the fact that
a thing can be eaten doesn't make it
food. Many a physician practising In the
tenements of a city says of falling men
or women. "What they need Is nourish
ing food." Shipwrecked men eat scraps
of leather, the bark of trees, anything
to satisfy hunger. But this Is not food

"CTJLTUS MAMOOK" AGAIN.
Man Who Named the Club Rises to
PORTLAND, Oct SO. CTo the Editor.)
The Oregonlan of October 29 contains an
article on the U3e and derivation of Chi
nook words. In which the writer face
tiously intimates that the "youth" who
suggested the name for a select social
club "is in danger of getting himself dis
liked," and demands that he "bo re
quired to explain."
With permission of The Oregonlan, he
rises to say that most of the remarks are
entirely gratuitous, and many of the allu
siong very wide of the mark. Tho "youth,"
when asked by a young lady for an un
conventional name for the new club, sug
gested "cultus mamook." To this title
the club added "the" and the terminal
"s," which, no doubt, gave them a patent
on tho name, "The Cultus Mamook3."
The poetical construction, "merry-makers,"
was suggested by a young lady
friend of the club, who took a liberal view
of the Interpretation of tho word3-
"The oerson who invented tho title"
may nof know much about Chinook jar
gon, notwithstanding he often mingled
with the Indian tribes of the Willamette.,
Umpqua and Rogue River; spent some
Rye1 - 3 in contact with Bannocks, Nez
Perces and Cayuses; dwelt two years on
tho Fraser River in British Columbia and
two years fur trading with the Tslmseaus
of British Northwest Territory and Alas
ka, and the Hydas of Queen Charlotte's
Islanda However, he learned that in a
vocabulary so limited as the Chinook,
many delicate shades of expression are
contained In a single word, and that in
terpretations are largely idiomatic, in
deed, much more so than is the case with
languages scientifically constructed. Lin
guists understand how difficult it is to
render an abstract Idea and give It a
just Interpretation when translated from
one language to another; and this Is espe
cially the case when a tongue Is falling

nutrition. All food must be considered in
relation to its nutritive value. When the
stomach and the allied organs of diges
tion and nutrition, are diseased the nutri
tion contained In food is imperfeccly ex
tracted, and the body fails of nutrition
adequate to its needs. The shipwrecked
sailor living upon scraps In which there
is no nutrition Is on a level with the man
who eats abundant nutritious food but
whose stomach with its allied organs is
diseased and. therefore falls to -extract
from the food eaten the nutrition which
is the body's need.
Sound Stomach, Sound Man.
That is almost an axiom. The man with
a sound stomach and good digestfim will
in ordinary be a sound man. because the
nutriment of food Is the life and strength
of heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and every
organ of the body.
The flrst need of a weak man is to look
after his stomach and his digestion. There
