AND NOW THEY LIE
A Mexican Dissected While
THE BUTTE DISASTER AFTERMATH
Railroad Men Knew Powder Was Stored
in the Burning Building--Insurance
Was Yerjr Small.
City o Mexico, Jan. 18. The peo
ple of Mexico are greatly excited over
the dissection of Antonio Vangose, while
till alive. The supposed corpse sprang
to its feet shouting, "Don't kill me!"
whereupon the dissector endeavored to
put back the pieces of flesh and sew up
the incisions. The man was a genuine
corpse in two days.
The Butte Disaster.
Butte, Mont., Jan. 18. Hour after
hour the disaster has been putting on
more distressing proportions. The real
weight and extent of the terrible calam
ity will never be know. The list of the
known dead has swelled to 53, and there
are at least four in the1 hospitals who
cannot recover, John Sloan, Charles
Ashton, W. L. Miles and William Bow.
Others were fatally injured. To the list
of missing Charles Hoffbauer was added
today. A few hours before the explo
sion he was up town and purchased a
new pair of shoes, and on his way home
he evidently Btopped at the fire. One
of the new shoes, which he had under
his arm, has been found a quarter of a
mile away from the scene of the catas
trophe, but not a fragment of Hoffhauer
has been found.
Including the list of 53 today are four
otthe missing firemen Dave Moses,
Samuel Ash, P. J. Norling and Ed
- Sloan, but not Hoffhauer, nor any other
of the missing.. No doubt many were
blown to atoms who will never be heard
Among the debris was found a number
f letters addressed to William Moffett,
463 Tremont street, Boston. The letters
were from Canada, and were signed Am
brose Allen. It is supposed he is among
the victims. A number of bills from
the lumber company to T. Mackie were
also found. Another letter found was
one from Portland, Or., signed E. C,
.Smith. Only a portion of the letter
, was found, and the letter closed with :
"If you see P. C. W. give him my best

fire marshal, but the identification is
not certain, there being nothing to dis
tinguish it but a belt which was exactly
similar to that worn by the assistant
chief, whose body was also unrecogniza
Every hour brings additional reports
of the injured. Fully 100 have been
heard from, many being in a serious
condition. Evan Evans was on the
scene directly after the first explosion
and started to assist in removing the in
jured. When the second explosion oc-
cured he was picked up and carried
some distance in the air, and far from
the scene. All hia clothes were torn
from his body, but the only injury he
sustained was a punctured right cheek
and a cut in his left side. The flash
was seen and the concussion of the-ex
plosion severely felt at Belgrade, on the
other side of the mountain range and 85
miles from Butte.
Coroner Richards had impaneled
jury, but County Attorney Wines was
not satisfied with its complexion, and
ordered it discharged and another, made
tip of representative business men, is to
be impaneled. The dead bodies were
viewed and an inquest of them post
poned until Monday, owing to the un
settled state of public feeling. Funerals
of the dead firemen will be held tomor

and the public officials and military and
civic societies will participate. lne
work of relief was set in progress today
and nearly $12,000 subscribed
It is significant, in looking for the
cause of the explosion, tnat nearly ail
the railroad men who were employed
about the Montana Central yards, fled
when the fire began. Most of them
knew there was a large quantity of pow
der stored in the neighborhood, and
they informed everybody they met to
that effect. There was but $6,500 in
surance on all the property destroyed,
outside of that owned bv the railroad
companies. Although the owners of the
warehouses where the explosions oc
curred state they had less than 150
pounds of giant powder in their build
ings, it is estimated by mining men wno
are familiar with explosives that at
least twenty tons of powder were in the
house. The law limits the storage of
powder within one mile of the city limits
to 150 pounds, but the penalty for its
violation is only a nominal fine. The
citizens of Butte, however, are deter
mined to fix the blame where it belongs,
and the investigation ai the inquest will
