Toulon, France, March 13. A
terrible naval dlnatT, which sur
paHsea In lti frightful reMilts the de
struction of the Ilcniilnnton In San
Diego harbor, Cal., occurred here
yesterday, when 300 men and officers
of the French battleiihlp lena met a
horrlblo death In the explosion of
the magazine of the veseal.
The lena wag lying at 'he arsenal
dock In the harbor. An Inspection
had been ordered of the machinery
of the magazine. While the officer
were making their rounds, there
came a frightful explosion, followed
by others In quick succession. The
great plates of the Teasel were torn
asunder and fragments of the armor,
the decks, the superstructure
small boats and mangled human
bodies were hurled high In the air.
The explosion was due to a com
pressed air torpedo which was be
ing adjusted In the magazine.
So terce were the flames which
burst out In all directions on the
stricken ship that telegraph and tele
phone wires about the arsenal dock
to which the vessel was moored were
fused. Scores of bodies of the vic
tims were Incinerated. For a Urn
It seemed certain that the big govern
ment arsenal would also be des
troyed. The lena was scheduled to sail In
4 8 hours. All of her fires were out,
pending the Inspection and a party
had Just descended below deck whan
-the defective torpedo exploded, fol

Wild scenes on deck followed the
shocks. Scores of men Jumped In
to the harbor, and It Is believed that
many were drowned. The explosion
was felt all over the city.
While scores of persons of the
dorks were watching the disaster de

exploded and many watchers were

forced to helplessly stand by and see
dozens of Injured, unable to drag
themselves off the Bhlu, roasted alive,

Oil King's Hrother Puld Too Much
for "Crystal Palace" Effects.
St. Louis, March 13. Frank
Rockefeller took the witness stand In
his suit against Henry Cross for the
restitution of $25,00 spent for a
sine mine In southwest Missouri. Mr.
Rockefeller said that he Inspected It
previous to buying.
"I went down In a shaft," he said,
"and my attention was constantly
called to bodies of ore. In the center
room of the mine was a pillar that
appeared to be practically solid zinc
ore. The walls of the room had the
same appearance. The lights carried
by the party raado It look like one
great crystal palace. The floors
seemed to be of solid ore."
Rockefeller alleges n was Induced
through misrepresentations to buy
tho mine and will endeavor to show
that the "crystal palace" effects wit
nessed by bltn did not faithfully por
tray the worth of the deposit of ore.
He said he paid $:i)0,000 for the
mine and spent $ii'.,000 in Improve
ments. PRICES WILL ADVANCE

Chicago, March 13. Ine general
ly congested condition of the rail
roads throughout the country and
the resultant shortage of cars will
cause an advance of prices on manu
factured products of the American
Paper and Pulp Association for 1907
and 190S. This was the result of a
meeting of the Eastern and Western
members of the association hold here
The manufacturers expressed the
opinion that as business Is now active
and prices of manufactured articles
are firm, the price Is likely to be ad
vanced because of both the scarcity
of raw material and the existing car
shortage. The greatly increased
price of production during the last
year was alio given as a reason for

for the construction of a torpedo fac
tory at Newport News Naval Station,
and he expects to advertise at once
for proposals. This will be the first

work. Tho new factory will give

STANFORD WHITE'S HHOTHER-IN-LAW
CALLED AS A WIT
NESS FOR THE STATE.
Trial Is Now Famous as Exciting
More Interest Than Any Mur
der Proceedings on Record.
New York, March 13. James
Clinch Smith, brother-in-law of Stan-
ford White, was recalled to the stand ,
when the Thaw trial opened yes- j
Both Delmas and Jerome were in ,
their places early. j
When Smith took the stand, Del-
mas and Jerome immediately began ,
an argument over Smith's testimony, ;
Jerome making a flat-footed request (
that Smith he made the witness .u
chief for the State.
Judge Fitzgerald ruled, admitting
the evidence of Smltn as a witness in
chief for the State, scoring a victory
When Jerome scored he called to
the stand Roundsman Howe, who
aided in the arrest of Thaw. He tes
tified that Thaw seemed rational.
Dr. Carlton Flint was called. He had
met Jack Barrymore
New York, March 13. The trial
of Harry K. Thaw for his life for
,v, rnnrHur of Stanford White has
realized the predictions made at Its
beginning that it would become the
most famous In the history of crlm
inai trials In America. The long
trial has been a record-breaking one
In many respects.
One of the most interesting side
lights on the famous case is af
forded by a comparison of the
amount of publicity It has received
with the amount of newspaper space
given to other history-making events
of recent times.
Since the date of the beginning
of the trial, January 23, the lead
ing newspapers of New York City
have devoted more than 5,000
columns to the case. The estimated
number of words ranges between 6,
000. 000 and 6.000.000. Placed end
to end the columns would stretch I
over one and thrse-fourths statue
miles. The columns of space devot
ed to accounts of the trial by the
dully press of the entire country, If
the columns were pieced end to end,
would for n a band of paper long
enough m stiercli from New Yoik
City beyond Philadelphia.
One h'.mdre 1 rid forty. two pic
tures of Kveiyn Nesblt Thaw ap
peared In the daily newspapers of
New York in a single woek. The
number prltoed in New York during
the entire period of the trial runs
into the thousands, while for the
country at l.Tgo the total can be fig
ured only by tens of thousands.
The Thaw trial at its most sensa
tional stage attracted as much at
tention from the newspapers of Eu
rope as did the war between the
I'nited States and Spain.
The space devoted to the case by
the American press greatly exceeds
in amount the space given to the
assassination of President McKitl
ley and the subsequent trial and
electrocution of the assassin.
More space has been given to ac
counts of the Thaw rase than tho
total amount devoted to accounts
of the ten most famous murder trials
that have taken place in America In
! Is believed that the entire cost
of the trial for botn sides will total
nearly $ I .:.",0,000.

cross this gronnd, proved by diamond drills and surrounding
workings; in fact there are six producer! closely adjaoent.
Another lease is on the SILVER PICK, adjoining and end
lineing the fauions Januarv claim of the GOLDFIELD MIN
ING CO , now onn of the properties of the FITY MILLION
DOLLAR CONS JLIDATION. The January has produced
more than a million. This lease alone is sufficient guarantee
The third lea.'e is on the 0. 0. D. which adjoins the At
lanta Milltowo and is on the trend of the MOHAWK,
FLORENCE, COMBINATION FRACTION and JUMBO ore
zones. Several neighboring leaBes are already in ore.
The compnay also owns four full claims, 80 acre9 of
gronnd, adjoining and being the extension of the GOLD
FIELD MONTEZUMA where there is a shaft down 200 feet
and npoQ which a complete hoisting plant is being erected.
Surface assays run from 4 to (16 per ton.

Ulork in Progress
Work is already nuder way on one of the leases and will
be prosecuted more vigorously as soon as the hoisting plants

with rapid speed in order to get to the known ore bodies and
at thj same time the property of the company will be worked.
