STILL THEY COME.
Powell Clayton, of Arkansas, Would
Like a Cabinet Position.
HIS FBIEXDS ARE SOT SANGUINE.
Jndje Berkshire, Who Named the Ticket,
HE IS STRONGLY OITOSED TO BLAIXE
rr-GoTeraor Torter and General tew Wallace Dont
Three Arkansas travelers visited Harri
son yesterday to boom Powell Clayton for
the Cabinet, but thay arc doubtlul of suc
cess. Judge Berkshire also visited the
General. He is for Elkins and against
Blaine. Ex-Governor Porter and General
lew "Wallace are emphatic in denying that
they are after Cabinet positions.
tSTECIAl TELEGRAM TO THE OIsrATCH 1
Ixdiaxafoms, Januarv 9. The South
and the storm swooped down upon General
Harrison to-day together. Kansas, Mis
souri, Louisiana and West Virginia, repre
sented the South, and snow, wind, rain,
hail, sleet, and all imaginableclemental un
pleasantness were mixed up in the storm.
The most important delegation was that
from Arkansas. It came hereto enter a new
man for the race a new man for the race,
that is, though rather an old one for the
Itepnblic.in party Judge John A. "Will
iams, or Pine Bluff, who s iys that he is one
of the only two Kepublicin Judges in the
State. Judge Lafayette Grigg, of r.ivette
ville, and Henry M. cooper, ot Little Rock,
were the delegation, and Powell Clayton
was the man whose Cabinet boom they came
It is said Clavton had already been sug
gested for a place in letters sent from vari
ous parts of Arkansis, but this was the
first formil representation of his claim be
sides their own words. The Arkausans
brought written indorsements of Clavton
irora Texas, Kansas and Arkansas. Mr.
Cooper is a business man and not a politi
cian, and according to him 'the business in
terests of Arkansas are fairly crvmg for
"The Kepublicans down our way are
unanimous for Clayton," Mr. Cooper S3vs,
"he has the confidence of everybody as to
integntv and ability and his business inter;
ests in the State are" larre."
All this and much more, the three Arkan
saw travelers said to General Hairison in
the short interview tnat they had with him
this morning, and jet as they sit around the
hotels this evening, there is a look of cank
ering doubt upon their faces as though they
thought that ina be President-elect wouldn't
apiioint CI ivton alter all.
Judge Berkbhire, the West Virginia Re
publican, whose presence here was noted
yesterday, called to-day upon General Har
rison under rather embirrassing circum
stances, the papers having printed a story
ol his mission which made him out a sort of
a great mo'ul from the land of the Kan
awha, come hre to tell the President-elect
th it Steve Elkins must go into the Cabinet
and that General GolT would not have a
Cjbinet place at any price. As a mat
ter of fact. Judge Berkshire is a pleasant
old gentleman, who came here to visit
Ins cousin, a Judge or the Indiana Supreme
Court and incidentally wanted to tell Gen
eral Harr son what he thought he knew
about tl e situation in West Virginia. He
is a friend of Henry G. Davis and o! Mr.
Elkins, and he does think th-it Mr. Elkins
would m ike a good Cabinet officer, and that
General Goff oujht to stick to the Gov
ernorship until he can swap it for one in the
United States Senate, but he doesn't pretend
to be in an wav the spokesman for General
Goff or Mr Elkins.
HE .ASIED TIIE WIXXEES.
Jndge Berkshire enjoys the distinction of
having mined the Republican ticket nearly
CO das prior to the Clucago convention.
He was a delegate-at-largc irom West Vir
ginia and iupported General H irnson
throughout. He savs his visit is largely
social, but he ulked over the political situa
tion m West Vuginia with the President
elect. He savs General Goff told him re
cently that he should be Governor and did
denies that he is here pressing his name, but
says that should President Harrison put El
kins in his Cabinet it would undoubtedly
grituv the Republicans of West Virginia,
but it was erroneous to say there was any cf
frt being made for Elkins. While Judge
Berkshire would personallj like to see Mr.
Elkins in the Cabinet, he occupies the
nnique position of being unfavorably dis
posed toward Mr. Blaine for a Cabinet
THEY tVOULDX'l TAKE IT.
A close friend of ex-Governor A. G.
Porter is autnonty for the statement th it
the Governor very recently said he had no
desire or expectation of going abroad as
a Minister, and would not accept a foreign
appointment. Some of Governor Porter's
friends, who are cognizant of this expres
sion, interpret it to mean that he would ac
cept a place in the Cabinet if tendered, but
others say it means that Porter, like
"Wallace, desires nothing, both having
enough literarv work mapped out to employ
them congenially for several years to come.
Gf nernl Lew Wallace to-day bought a lot
in this citv and will begin the erertion of a
residence. He authorized the statement this
evening that he is not an aspirant for any
office and under no circumstiuces would he
accept a C ibinet place. He was tery em
phatic in this.
Mrs. Pratt, of Chicago, representing the
Illinois Woman's Press Association, called
upon General Harrison this afternoon and
invited him to attend the next annual meet
ing or the association He gave her no en
couragement that he would accept.
TASTOR HAINES OK HAKP.ISOS.
Pastor Haines, of General Harrison's
church, has been writing an article about
his distinguished parishioner for the current
issue of the Methodist magazine pub'ished
here. The article contains some state
ments that will be news to most of
the General's associates, as lor instance, the
one that he "lacks that quality of a politi
cian which makes one expert at pulling
wires and laing pipes."
This statement of General Harrison's po
sition upon the tempera-ice question can
probably be taken as ofhcial

Other interesting paragraphs of the article
are the following:

In speaking of the habit of some people

Taxes Office, said vesterday: "It is against
the law to receive any money for taxes hut
that handed over the counter to the cashier,
and it is distinctly printed on each bill; but
in spite oi this people are being duped and
pav money to people while in line, repre
senting themsches to be connected with the
department, and are given receipts. Of
course, the entries are never made on our
books, and when placed on the delinquent
list and a bill sent, the property owners
complain, but are compelled to pay the bill
tw ice for their carelessness. As an act of
courtesy we receive bills at this desk when
the parties inclose the bill and check, not
the money, in a scaled envelope. But
some of the more excited people, and those
willing to run every risk, rush into the
office, and to the clerk's desk, ana throw
down an envelope, which, when opened,
is found to contain money. Ot course, we
have to take it and hold the receipt for
them, but if in any way these envelopes
should become misplaced, and the money
lost, they could not hold the department re

THE TRUST IS DEAD.
Judsio Barrett Killed it by His Opinion
in llio Suit Against the
K0RTB EIVER SUGAR COMPANY.
He Declares the Sugar Trust an
Combination, and Says
THE LAW IS ABLE TO PROTECT ITSELF
ijalnst Abuses of the Pririleges It Grants Without
Judge Barrett, of the New York Supreme
Court, yesterday decided that the Sugar
Trust is an illegal combination, and declared
that the charter of the North Eiver Sugar
Refining Company, which had joined the
trust, was forfeited.
New York, January 9. Judge Barrett,
in the Supreme Court Circuit to-day, ren
dered a decision in favor of the Attorney
General against the Sugar Trust. The suit
was brought by the people of the State of
New York against the North Eiver Sugar
Refining Company by Attorney General
T.ibor to forfeit the charter of the North
Eiver Company, of this city, on the ground
that it had virtually passed out of existence
bv selling out all its stock to the Sugar
Trust combinations and closing up all its
The action was brought by Attorney Gen
eral Tabor for the forfeiture and dissolution
of the charter of the North River Refining
Company because it had exceeded its power
and franchise in becoming a member of the
AX IMrOBTANT OriNIOS".
Judge Barrett's opinion is a most ex
haustive one, and is probably the most im
portant that has ever been written upon the
subject of trusts and monopolies. Judge
Barrett to-day summoned the counsel on
both sides before him and a juror whose
duty it was to merelv formally render a ver
dict in accordance with the decision of the
Court. Counsel for the defendants took an
exception to the ruling of the Court. In his
decision Judge Barrett says.
It did not require the astute mind that pre
pared this most original instrument to conceive
thatan aggregation of pirtnerships with the
dangers resulting from death and the exercise
of individual power would never effect S3fe and
permanent cohesion. Accordingly, wo find as
one of the first provisions of the deed and as
the basis of the so called trust structure, a con
dition in substance that the partnerships shall
all be turned into corporations. This, in fact,
was done, and thus several of thecc corpora
tions were organized for the express purposo of
crcatins the verv shares of capital stock
through which the combination was to be
formed. Partners took on corporation garb,
became shareholders, and thus fitted them
selves to enter the combination within the
terms of the deed.
A TECULIAK FEATURE.
Regarding the profits arising from the
business of each corporation to be paid
over by it to the board hereby created, and
the aggregate of said profits or such amounts
as may be designated for dividends, shall be
proportionately distributed by said board at
such time as it mav determine to the holders
of the certificates issued by said board for
capital stock as hereinbefore provided,
Judge Barrett says:
It will be seen that these dividends are not to
be declared or distributed upon the aircregate
capital stock of the corporations, which is to
turned over to and held by the trustees, but
upon what might not inaptly in view of these
peculiar facts, be termed the trust boards'
f-ipital stock, namely, the trust certificates.
Thus we have a series of corporations existing
and transacting business under the forms of
law without real membership or genuinely quali
fied direction mere abstract fragments of
statutory creation without life in the conceit
or underlying association. Every sh re of
stock has been practically surrenderee; and
vital membershp resigned. With the transfer
to the 11 trustees the shareholders cease to oc
cupy the position of "ceistius que trustent"
with regard to the directors of the various cor
porations. A "WIDE SCOPE.
Speaking of the scope of the combination,
the Judge says:
But thev did not stop there. Provision is
made for the gathering in of every other exist
ing efinerv (in every instance to bo incorpo
rated), and in fact four others have joined the
combination sii ce the deeyi was signed by the
original partnerships and corporations, and the
evidence shows that in the entire country but
five sugar refineries of the character in ques
tion remain outside of the corporation.
The Judge discusses at length the legal
question, ''Wasthisa combination of corpo
rations or merely a combination of stock
holders?" and decides that it was a corporate
combination, and says:
This combination having asked and accented
the favor of the law it cannot complain that it
is taken to task for grossly offending its letter
THE JjAVT ABLE TO PROTECT ITSELF.
Fortunately the law is able to protect itself
agiinst abuses of the privileges which it
grants, and while further legislation, both pre
ventive and disciplinary may be suitable to
check and punish exceptional wrongs, yet
there is existing, to use the phrase of a distin
guished Enclih Judge in a noted case, "Plain
law and plain sense" enough to deal with
corporate abuses like the present, abuses
which, if allowed to thrive and becomegeneral,
must inevitably lead to the oppression of the
people and ultimately to the subversion of their
political rights. Again the legal results justly
follow forfeiture and dissolution.
Jndge Barrett says in conclusion that it
would quite unnecessarily belittle the dis
cussion of this momentous question to con
sider the minor charges presented by the
people. The judgment should rest upon
the broad and main issue. There it rests
with a sense of fitting proportion, and there
it should be left
After the opinion was rendered the single
juror who served on the case, gave a ver
dict for the plaintiff by direction.

further documents in relation to the Morier
Baz.iine and the Geffcken incidents are
about Jo be published. The Cologne Gazette
miintains that the published text of Mar
shal Bazaine's letter concerning the Morier
affair did not emanate from him. The paper
ignores everything adduced against the
probability of Marshal Bazaine's statement
to Major Von Deines. The Colojne Yolls

The Political Correspondence of Vienna pnb
lishes a semi-offlenl letter from Berlin, which
justifies Count Herbert Bismarck's refusal to
comply with the request of Sir Robert Morier
that Count Herbert causo an official with
drawal to be made of the charges
against Sir Robert, on the ground that
Sir Robert could only communicate with Count
Herbert through Sir Edward Malct, the British
Ambassador to Germany under Lord Sal
isbury's direction. This course, the letter
states, Sir Robert has now apparently fol
lowed. The same paper has another semi-official

Sternbergh's rolling mjll, and a number of
dwellings were unroofed as readily as if
their tin roofs were paper. The storni then
hurried across the property of the Beading
Railroad Company and crossed the railroad.
Here a passenger car was standing. This
was overturned as quickly as if it nad been
a toy, and its splinters scattered in every
direction. Meanwhile the rain poured down
The atmosphere became heavy anc! op
pressive, and it was almost as dark as night.
Directly alongside the tracks of tho Reading
Railroad was situated the paint shops of tbe
company. It was a one-story building about
GO by 150 feet in size. Here about 30 men
were employed in painting the passenger
cars. There were eight or nine of
these cars in the building. The
building was struck Squarely in the
middle and the bricks scattered about as if
they were playthings. The cars were
turned topsy-turvy, while the men were
buried under the debris. Some of the
bricks were carried a square away. The
chamber of each of the p.issengcr cars was
already filled with gas, as they were ready
to be taken out on the road in a few days.
These exploded one after another with the
fearful bang of cannon.
Bang! Bang! Bang! They resounded over
the city, causing the people to run out of
their houses, thinking that it was the sound
of an earthquake. There was a considera
ble quan tit) of gasoline in the building, and
this added fuel to the flimcs. A. sheet of liaine
shot upward with a roar like muskctn. Some
"0 of the men had a chance to crawl out of
the debris, but four of their companions
were enveloped in the embrace of the flames.
Their cries were heard for a moment by
the terrified workmen, and then their voices
were hushed forever. They were quickly
roasted to death, and hro from the nine pas
senger cars lit up the heavens for miles around.
It was a beautitul sight, and could have been
enjoyed but for the awful falamity which ac
companied it. In the meantime the tire de
partment was called out, but its services were
TIIE BURNED MEN.
The building and cars were consumed in 13
minutes, and nothing left but blackened smok
ing ruins, under which four human beings lay
burned to a crisp. Their names are John
Kahler, Albert Landberger, Sheridan Jones
and Georo-e Schueofcr. It was rumored that
others had been killed, but these are the only
ones who are known to have lost their lives in
this building Aaron Dewalt, another em
ploye in the paint shop, had his arm broken,
ana George Rnabbs was injured, no doubt
fatal! . The loss to the railroad company is
While all this was going on, tho storm was
traveling forward with fearful rapidity. It
must have traveled at the rate of 100 miles an
hour. It struck somo more private houses, and
unroofed a dozen residences. The huge sheets
of tin were carried half a square away and de
posited in a lot. Then the storm reached its
tull fury. Directly in its path at the corner of
First and Marion streets, stood tbe Reading
silk mill, one of the industries of the city, in
which the citizens took the greatest pride.
Here about 175 happy girls were working.
The building was a hugo structure, most sub
stantially built, four stories in height and a
nasement. it occupied an entire oiock oi
ground. The building was nearly 300 feet in
length and about 150 feet wide. It was sur
mounted by a massive tower fully 100 feet from
the ground. The funnel-shaped storm cloud
struck the building directly in the center on its
broadest side, which faced the west.
It fell to pieces as if composed of so many
building blocks. Nearly 200 human beings
went down in the awful wreck. Human tongue
cannot tell the terrible scenes ol that hour.
Tho walls gave way, tho floors fell down, one a
on top oi tne otner, ana carrieu tneir great
mass of human beings to the bottom. The
bricks were piled up in the greatest confusion,
while amid the hurricane and whistling, rush
imr, roaring wind, terrible cries for succor were
sent up to heaven. Almost simultaneously
with the fall or the building came the awful
cries for relief. Girls with blackened faces,
brui'ed and broken limbs, their clothing tat
tered and torn, dragged themselves from the
So probably 75 to 100 escaped or were dragged
out by their friends. These, of course, worked
on the upper floors and were thrown near the
top of the debris. At somo places the bricks
were piled 20 leet deep and underneath are
Iving to-night human bodies by tbe score.
About 350 girls and young women are usually
employed in tbe mill, but at 4 o'clock about SO
were relieved from dutv for the day. They re
turned to their homes before the storm came.
The most reliable estimate ot to-night places
the number in tbe building when it went down
in tbe neighborhood of 175, and as before
stated, 100 of theo were rescued by friends or
dragged themselves out immediately after the
WORK Or RESCUE.
The call for relief was immediately sent out,
and m a short time thousands of citizens ar
rived to help the dead and dying. The sceno
was a harrowing one, and beggars description.
When tho people arrivod everything was en
veloped in darkness. Then huge bonfires were
built, which cast a dimal glare on the sur
rounding scene. The Are companies left the
burning paint shop and assisted in the rescue.
of the dead and tho dying. The entire police
force was called oat, the ambulance and relief
corps and a thousand people were in among
the debris carrying out bricks pulling away
timbers and assisting wherever they could.
Their work was slow compared with the de
mand for rescue of the victims of the disaster.
Here a young woman was taken out senseless,
suffering with cuts and bruises. One body no
ticed as it was dragged out had its head cut off.
Others were in various posture", the living all
suffering from the most terrible wound", and
some almost scared to death. The Associated
Press reporter entered what was once the base
ment of the building, and, grouping his way
through the debris, noticed five bodies of
joungglrls lying close together. He tried to
pull them out, but they were pinned down, and
it was impossible to get them out. They were
dead and beyond all human aid.
TJn to 10.30 o'clock to-nizht nrobablv the
bodies of a dozen dead have been taken out,
while tie greater portion of tbe remainder
were still under tho ruins. The work of rescue
will be pusned all nigbt, but it mav be far Into
to morrow before all tho bodies are taken out.
The rescuers still have tho sreatest hopes that
some of those inside are still living, and there
is every reason for saying that in this the per
sons who believe that way are right.
All is chaos and confusion around the mill.
The managers are missing, and the correct
number of dead is merely guess-work. It may
not be over 40, and then again at this hour there
is a likelihood that it will reach CO, or even hO,
The silk mill was built about four years ago.
The builders were Reading capitalists, and the
cost of putting it up was S&3 000. The mill n as
leased to Grimsbaw Brothers, of Patcrson, N.
J., where they also operated similar mills, and
they have been running it ever since. The
machinery they nut m the mill cost $45,100.
This is a total loss.
When the Associated Pres reporter visited
the scene of the wreck at 11 o'clock tonight
he found everything in the ere itest confusion.
At that time about a dnzen dead bodies had
been taken out. Among those who are dead
arc the following: Henry Crocker, foreman of
the silk mill and married. 23 ears old, head
crushed in, neck and arm broken; Laura
Kersher, Eva Leeds, Lillie Grow, Katie Bow
man, Kate Leas, Amelia Chri-tman, Sophie
Vtnkleman, Ella Long, Willie Snjder. Will
iam Robcon, Rebecca Ponse, Kate Reiden
auer. Rose Clemmer. These aro ail the dead
who have been taken out.
Clerk Aulenback stated at midnight that ho
believed that fully SO bodies were in tbe ruins
under the three floors. His list of emploes is
lost, and owing to the confusion in taking out
the injured he was unable to fnrnisli a list of
the killed. Bat 80 is a conservative estimate
of those who lost their lives. Among the
wounded are Geraldine Glazvr, Annie Leeds,
Bertba Knser, Ella Lamm, Emma Rauemahn,
George Neinial, Ella Karl, Minnie Merkel,
Sallie Has-son, Lizzie Ou ens Bertha Herman,
Mary Mellon, Elbe Salmon, Ellie Pflum. Kate

A GRAPHIC STORY.
Augustus Froscop, residing, at KB North
Tenth street, was the foreman of the first and
second floors of the silk mill. A reporter in
terviewed him, and bis statement is as follows:
"It was about 20 minutes past 5 o'clock when
I went to the second story to turn on the elec
tric lights. After I had done this I stood look
ing about the room for 10 minutes. Suddenly
I heard a loud rushing noie, which I thought
was a cyclone. The building then shook. I
was standing in tbe southern end of the room,
and before 1 could look out of tbe window I
felt the building sink. Quick as lightning the
portion oi ine room mat i. Has m went down,
The rirls rushed abitut me. crvimr anu scream
ing, and calling for heln. They did not realize
wbat was taking place. It seemed to me as if
the center of the building was struck first. I
cannot describe the scene.
"It was awfull I could not do anything and
could not think of what I should do. (Our end
of the building went down first, and while tho
floor was sinking it seemed to me as if tbe girls
in the other part of the room were on top of a
hill. That was the way it impressed me.
While we were going down I saw the other por
tions ot tbe floor fall. In a mmnte all was
over. The screaming of the girls was heart
rending. I was knocked down under heavy
timbers and held fast by my foot. Iconld
move every other part of my body excepting
my leg. I reached down with my knife and cut
the shoe off my foot. In this way I became
loosened and managed to arise. Amid tho
screams of the girls and falling beams and
bricks, I succeeded in escaping. I got ont of
the ruins on the eastern side of the building,
but how, I do not know.
"I called to the gnls as loudlv as I could.
They were all terribly frightened, and I never K
witnessed anytmng so awtui lnmvine. Many
of them heard me and worked themselves
toward me. At some places it seemed as if the
floor was closed in a solid mass, and the girls
would creep around this, crawl over the ma
chines and creep on their hands and knees
until they got to the opening where I was. The
machims saved many from being crushed to
death and left a space between the floor and
debris to crawl out I believe that iully 100
persons escaped with me. I remember seeing
them run ai ross the commons in different di
rections to their homes badly terrified.
Some ran anav a, short distanco and then re
turned to the ruin. The girls came back to
look for their brothers and sisters and friends.
We could hear tho moana and shrieks of those
imprisoned in the rums. The rain was pouring
down and all around, was dark. I was badly
brnised and hurt about the body, head and
limbs, and went homo aftPr I saw I could do
nothing. Between 250 and 300 operatives were
in the bui'ding. About 4 o'clock I allowed 16
girls to go home. All the floods were in opera
tion. The report that 100 went home at 1 o'clock

AN OLD PLAN REVIVED.
The Wheatitone System Not Likely to lie.
come Popular In Amcricn Tho Plan Is
Too Expensive for Common Use.
There is a bugaboo in the world of tele
graphy as well as in every other profession.
It assumes the form of an indefinite rumor,
and appears annually. This time the old
Morse system of telegraphy is to be aban
doned, and the English heatstone system
is to be introduced, with dire results to the
many thousands of telegraph operators,
throwing them out of work and performing
their tasks automatically.
A call wa made on two of the chief
operators of the rival lines in this city, and
their attention was called to the rumor.
They smiled as if greeting an old friend.
Both denied the truth of such rumors, and
said that a "Wheatstone instrument had
been in use in the Pittsburg office for the
pjvt our years.
The system, they S3V, is an excellent one.
With it ten times as many words can be
taken than by the More in the same length
of time, with the additional advantage of
being more accurate. It is too expensive,
however, to become popular. It costs as
much to transact a small amount of busi
ness as a large volume. There is no danger
oftelegraph companies making their ex
pense accounts any higher than is absolute
