ROME, Nov. 1 Fire broke out at 8:30

Strenuous efforts wore made to control
the flames and the firemen of Rome were
called to lend their help. At 11:15 the

The pope came to the scene in person
and remained 'until the arrangements to
fight the fire were made. The fire caused
a greater sensation in Home than any
event since the death of Pope Leo. The
safety of the pope was the first thought
in every one's mind, but this was soon
assured, "tt'hen the pontiff arrived at the
scene he ordered every qne to assist in
extinguishing the flames.
The first intimation of fire was had
when smoke was seen issuing from the
apartment of M. Mario, which Is located
above that of the librarian. M. Marie Is
a celebrated French restorer of ancient
-manuscripts and illuminated books. He
is at present engaged in copying a work
and his first productions have been se

the St. Louis Exposition.

doors of M. Marie's apartment and found

retired and forgot to take proper precau

ably blazed up and ignited -some near-by
The fire started and it rapidly assumed
such proportions that the gendarmes
who were the first on the scene gave
an immediate general alarm. The whole
palace awoke to instant life. The Swiss
guard, the papal firemen, gendarmes,
priests and domestics all rushed hither
and thither in ignorant confusion, asking
what was the matter, no one knowing
where or what the danger was, or what
News of the fire was immediately con
veyed to the pope, who was found-kneeling
in his chapel for his usual evonlng
prayer. He Insisted on going at once to
the scene, notwithstanding the fact that
he was begged to think first of his own
safety. The moment he arrived his mind
grasped the gravity of the situation, and
ho ordered that the firemen of Rome be
called. This was done by telegraph.
The firemen arrived in about 10 minutes
and it took four engines some time to
find the best way to get sufficient water
supply with which to fight the fire. The
pope withdrew as soon as he saw that
everything possible was being done.
The information had been sont to the
Italian authorities. They were courte

and participated personally1 in the fight.

MRS. BOOTH-TUCKER'S HTNERAL
Great Congregation Weeps In Sym
pathy With Commander.
2tEW YORK, Nov. L Funeral services
o-ior the remains of Emma Booth-Tucker,
consul of the Salvation Army in America,
were held this afternoon in Carnegie Hall.
The auditorium was filled to overflowing
and hundreds of persons who had been
unable to gain entrance waited in the
streets until the ceremonies had been
concluded, that they might file past and
look upon the face of the dead Salvation
ist. The services, which were conducted by
Colonel E. J. Higgins, chief secretary of
the Salvation Army in America, were
most impressive, and consisted of a
musical programme made up of the favor
ite hymns of the dead woman and by
eulogies of her life and of the good she
had done for mankind. The grief of
Commander Booth-Tucker was most poig
nant, and as he knelt by the bier cobbing,
the greater, part of the vast congregation
wept with hjm.
, General fijjUlington Booth, of the Volun
teers of America, did not remain for the
memorial services. According to his sec
retary he had endeavored to arrange for
a family gathering and short privato
services in Carnegie Hall before tho pub
lic funeral took place. General Booth ar
rived at the hall three-quarters of an hour
ahead of time, and waited for the family
gathering, but learning that it would no
take place he left, saying that he did not
care to stay for the public services.
Herbert Booth, his brother, who was
formerly Commander-in-Chief of tho Sal
vationists in Australia, at the request of
the General, remained to represent the
family, and If possible to say a few words
to the audience. Herbert Booth twice
asked permission from Commander Booth-
Tucker to speak, but each time it was re
fused. Commissioner Eva Booth was to have
spoken, but was too overcome by grief to
do so. At the close of the services, how
ever, she rendered a prayer. Cablegrams
were read from General William Booth
and Chief Bramwell Booth, of the Inter
national, headquarters, London, at the
The ceremonial partook somewhat of tho
character of a military funeral. Tho pro
cession moved down the aisle, led by
two standard-bearers carrying whlto satin
streamers, and followed by the members
of the general staff. Preceding the casket
was Colonel Higgins. Commander Booth
Tucker and his seven children followed
the casket. The Commander occupied tho
center of the stage during the services.
After the Carnegie Hall services the rel

barracks, where the regular Sunday night
memorial exercises were held.

WASHINGTON. Nov. 1. The following
statement of the conduct of the Investi
gation into publio land frauds in the
Pacific Coast states was prepared at the
Secretary which Indicated that
frauds of a serious nature had been and
were being perpetrated against the Gov
ernment under what Is known as the
forest reserve land act of Juno 4, 1S97,
by a combination of land speculators on
the Pacific Coast. The Information and
indicated frauds were of so grave a char
acter that the Secretary at once directed
a thorough investigation to be made.
"This Investigation was commenced last
June and had been conducted by those in
charge of the actual work with great
care and with all possible speed consistent
-vslth thoroughness. The Investigation
has proceeded step ,by step without In
termission, under the Secretary's per
sonal direction and every clew to wrong
doing has been quietly followed to Its
source, with the result that It Is the con
lidcnt belief of those In -charge that the
guilty ones will bo apprehended and
speedily brought to Justice.

Secretary from the beginning that the
dian reservations in New Mexico, have
been acquitted after trial before Judge
Halette. In the United States District

Feeling That Inevitable Conflict Will
Be but Delayed,
TOKIO, Oct. 14. (Correspondence of the
Associated Presfc.J The correspondent of
tho Associated Press has received Infor
mation from some of the leading diplo
matic authorities showing that the gravity
of the Russo-Japanese situation has not
been exaggerated in cablegrams from Jap
an. There Is prevalent, however, a strong
desire In Japan to preserve peaco If only
that course be made possible.
Without divulging the names of tho
authorities who have communicated their
views on the situation, it may be said that
the Idea of the existence of a "war party,"
so called In Japan, Is wrong, and that the
Emperor, the Cabinet and his advisers
are all In favor of an honorable compro
mise of the difficulty. But It Is argued
that the conflict between Russla,whlch has
been described as the "new America," and
Japan for the mastery of the Pacific must
assuredly come and must Inevitably leave
a greater forthcoming conflict between
Russia and the United States, unless somo
halting ground of Russian expansion be
found. Japan Is convinced that the first
halting ground should ber Manchuria, and,
falling that, that It must bo Corea.
There is undoubtedly a strong feeling
In Japan that If Russia be allowed to
overrun Manchuria and also overrun
Corea the knell of the empire will havo
been sounded. Thereupon, while willing
to compromise on a basis fxy the perma
nent open door in Manchuria, the reten
tion of Manchuria by China as an Integ
ral part of her kingdom, and tho absolute
Integrity of Corea, Japan is not prepared
to go further.
The present prospects are for continued
negotiation, but in the outlying district
the situation is liable to get out of hand
and a hostile crisis be precipitated at
any time. In the meantime disturbing
rumors of Russian movements, following
nonevacuatlon on October 8 In defiance of
the treaty, continue to unsettle trade.
The Japanese authorities have taken
precautions to be In readiness for any pos
sible contingency, while holding confer
ences with the executive departments and
at the same time refraining from such
aggresslvo action as characterizes tho
operations of Russians at the front.
