Paris. Oct. 28. Marshal Joffre
has returned from a visit to the oc
cupied territory of Germany 'where
he was received with the .greatest
enthuslusin by the Belgian. Urltlsh,
American and French soldiers. The
Germans rendered to him the honor
which heretofore had been reserved
for the former emperors when the
Marshal and Madame Joffre attend
ed a performance at the MaVence
opera house.
It waa one of Wagner's operas, so
repugnant to .Parisian civilians, that
the first Marshal of iFra'nce honored
with his presence. There has been a
long established custom In' Germany
that whenever the emperor attended
the opera, no applause should begin
until royalty gave the signal. The
Germans awaited the marshal's good
pleasure bofore manifesting their ap
proval. Joffre did not applaud un
til, the second act and the artiste'
rendition of the iflret act was elven
amidst complete silence.
On the train returning to Paris,
Joffre summoned the newspaper cor
respondents who had accompanied
him on his tour and one of them, a
financial reporter 'broached the sub
ject of exchange. The marshal list
ened gravely while the expert ex
plained to him why the dollar was
worth nine francs and the nnund

"It Is peculiar. During the war.

Paris, Oct. '28. After all. , the
Rhelms cathedral has not suffered
from German bombardments and
fire so much as was et first sup
posed. Cardinal Uicon has told a
representative ot the Paris Jntransi
geant. The cardinal announced that
divine service would he resumed In
the cathedral from November 1 but
the holy office will toe restricted to
the altar of the Virgin and the am
bulatory around It. These ,wlll ac
commodate only about 1300 'persons.
The Interviewer describes how he
met the cardinal at Rhelms In a
simply furnished apartment of the
archleplscopal palace, with a shell
hole In the wall. Cardinal Lucon,
despite his 77 years, is a till hale and
alert, and he Is en optimist.
"Destroyed, my cathedral? Why,
no," he said. "The damage is much
more easily repairable than is gen
erally believed. A few ancient parts,
it is true, cannot Ibe replaced, but
the beauty of the . cathedral lay,
first. In its stained glafes; secondly,
In Its sculptures', and thirdly, in Its
statuary. ' 1
Screams of the Women 'Add to the
Confusion During Attempts at
Muskegon, Mich., Oct. 28. The
number of dead as a result of the
sinking of the Crosby liner, City of
Muskegon, formerly the. City of Hol
land, may never be known, but it is
now placed anywhere from 12 to 30.
The vessel struck the south pier at
the channel entrance While trying to
make the harbor, and was so badly
damaged that she went down In four
minutes. A gigantic wave caught
the steamer unexpectedly, dashing
her against the pier, following;
stormy night upon- the water. The
passengers were caught in their
staterooms, and the screams of the
women added to the confusion while
attempts at rescue were being made.
Some of the passengers escaped from
thi sinking ship as she lay against
(be pier, but how many went down
may never ibe known as the passen
ger list was lost with the ship. A
number of members pf the crew are
among those missing.
Brussels, Oct. 28. The Belgian
steel industry Is greatly handicapped
by lack of transportation. About 20
blast furnaces which have been re
paired since the withdrawal of the
German forces could start work
within the next six weeks if the ne
cessary coke could .be obtained. .The
taking over of 400 American locomo
tives is being negotiated with a view
to relieving the situation. '
Belgium Is supplying Rumania
and Switzerland with coal in ex

with Argentina for the shipment ot
50.000 tons of coal to that country

"Of the stained glass, nine-tenths
has ibeen saved and brought to Paris.
The remaining tenth can be restored
by specialists, with the aid of much
patience and a great (lumber of col
ored photographs we have. As re
gards the sculptures, we shall use
the numerous moldings we have of
them. Many have had to be restored
anyway in the course of centuries,
such as for instance, the large .piece
representing the Assumption. That
was restored In 1875.
"As for the statuary, we have so
many moldings that It will be easy
to reproduce the damaged parts. The
pillars, with their ornamented capi
tals, have suffered little: only the
two side doorways have been badly
damaged by fire."
"Was there not some talk of leav
ing the cathedral as It was?" the re
porter asked.
"If the evidence ot Teutonlo bar
barity have to be preserved, let them
be kept In a private museum," re- '
plied the cardinal gravely.
