NO EVIDENCE HOW
GAS WAS LIGHTED
Coroner's Inquest in the Johnstown
Mme Disaster Elicits No Light
on the Beal Cause.
By Exclusive Wire trom The Associated Press.
Johnstown, July 21. The second day
ot the inquiry Into the Rolling Mill
mine disaster of July 10, being held
under the direction of Coroner Miller,
established the fact conclusively that
the explosion was caused by some one
lighting gas which had accumulated,
but was not at its highest explosive
point. In what manner It was ignited
or by whom will probably never be
known. Among the eight witnesses ex
amined today were Mine Foreman
Henry L. Rogers, Assistant Foreman
Thomas L. Foster and FIreboss Grif
fith Powell. They were unable to ex
plain how the gas became ignited.
Witnesses testified today that of the
600 men employed In the mine about 10
per cent, are practical miners, In which
the mine officials could place their con
fidence. Miners were Instructed to
leave their open lamps at tho danger
signals, but no one was positive this
rule was strictly obeyed. There was
gas In pillar work at all times. Fire
bosses examined the mine each morn
ing before the men went to work. Men
were 'not supposed to work in gas in
any condition, but were given safety
lamps as a protection in case gas came
on them. Miners found in dangerous
places with open lamp3 were dis
charged. Tomorrow Chief Mining Engineer M.
O. Moorp, Al. G. Prosser, his assistant,
Superintendent George T, Robinson and
other officials will be called to the
stand. Coroner Miller said today that
ho expected the inquest to continue
through Saturday when the state mine
Inspectors will testify.

The defense admitted all of the specifi
cations In the first charge, taking excep
tion only to tho word "unlawful," and
pleaded Justification under general order
100 and the conditions prevailing (n Tay
abaB province. Tho defense also pro
duced a telegraphic order from General
Chaffee, ingliig the location of Cabellas,
regatdless of the measures necessary to
do so, The desire to shift responsibility,
tho defense disclaimed, and said the tele
gram from General Chaffee was produced
to show the urgent necessity for locating

at the Gardener Inquiry testified that the
third man riled from lnjuiles, that he was
not ducked and that lie was not molested.

Sea Girt, N. J., July 24. No president
received a more sincere, heartfelt and
patriotic welcome than that accorded
today to President Roosevelt by the
people of New Jersey. From the time
he landed in New Jersey at tho 'At
lantic Highlands pier, at 1.13 o'clock
this nfternoon, until he left in his
launch for the war yacht Mayflower,
anchored several miles off the pier,
at 3.15, he was the recipient of a con
The president, on invitation of Gover
nor Franklin Murphy extended through
Senator Kean, visited the encampment
of the Second brigade of the National
Guard of the state at Sea Girt. Ac
companied by Mrs. Roosevelt, Miss
Alice Roosevelt, Mr. and Mrs. "W. Era
len Roosevelt, Miss Christine Roose
velt and Assistant Secretary Loeb, the
president left Sagamore Hill at 7
o'clock this morning and boarded the
Mayflower, his ofllclal naval vessel,
from a launch.
Ten thousand people greeted tho
presidential parly at the Sea Girt sta
tion. President Roosevelt and other
distinguished guests were escorted in
carriages to the governor's cottage, ad
joining the military encampment, less
than half a mile from the station. As
be arrived at the cottage a president's
salute of twenty-one guns was fired.
After a brief rest and art Informal rei'
ccptlon at the cottage. President Roose
velt and Governor Murphy and staff
reviewed the troops In camp. The
president was mounted on a magnificent
chestnut bay on which he sat perfectly.
At the conclusion of the review, Mr.
Roosevelt was escorted to a stand ad
joining the parade ground and there
addressed the assembled troops . and
the multitude which had gathered and
which number by this time nearly 13,
000. Governor Murphy Introduced the
president as follows:
"I have the pleasure and honor In
introducing to you one who is dis
tinguished nllke as a citizen, as a
soldier and as a statesman and Is now
honored and beloved as the president
of this great country. I have the honor
to present to you President Roosevelt."
After the demonstration which follow
ed had subsided President Roosevelt
spoke as follows:
A man Is of use as a National Guards
man for just exactly the same reasons as
he is of use as a citizen; and that is if
lie sets to work with his whole heart to
do his duty for tho time being, to make
himself thoroughly proficient in tho line
of business he has taken up. A National
Guardman who joins only to have a good
time pretty generally does not have a
good tlmo nnd certainly makes a poor
hand at being a guaidsman.
1 earnestly hope and believe you will
never get Into battle, but If you do It Is
going to be mighty Important to lilt tho
other fellow; and you are going to be able
to do It largely in consequence of the
way you have put In your time, knowing
your rifle until It Is Just part of yourself,
until you can handle it, take care of It
and use it, It 'has been tho pride of tho
American army In tho past that our
tioops always have used their rifles ef
ficiently. Wo have prided ourselves upon
having nn army of marksmen. Our army
has given us a just pride In it, becauso
its constant and zealous effort has been
to tako caro of Itself in the field and in
all that pertains to the duties of a soldier,
I think, gentlemen, that much help can
bo given to the National Guatds, of tho
states by the action of the United States
government. I want to see tho National
Guard armed with the best and most
modern weapons (applause), I want to
seo the Infantry with the Krag-Jorgenspn
nnd I want to see the artillery with the
three-point-two gun of the regular army.
I am happy to say that a bill has been
passed through the lower house which
will enable the national government ma
terially to aid the National Guard of the
different states. At tho next session. I
firmly believe, that we will get It through
the United StatPs senate and then 7 can
guaranten the signature of the president.
(Laughter and appluuse),
Not Always Appreciated.
I think that our people have not always
appreciated the debt they were under to
tho National Guard,' A man who gets
Info the National Guard and does Ids duty
fairly and Bquarely there puts the whole
country unde'r an obligation to him, Al
ways In our hUtory It ban been the case,
as It will be In tho future, that, If war
should arise, It la to bo met mainly by
the citizen soldier the volunteer soldier.
Wo have, In tho regular army, officered
ns It Is, and filled with the type of en
listed men we had In It, an army which
I firmly believe for Its size, Is unequalled
In the civilized woild; and I urn sure
that I can challenge the most generous
support from the National Guard or tho
regular army of the Halted Stutes. (Ap
plause), But that, army, Is and of neces
sity must he, so rjnall that In the event
of serious trouble in the future, tho great
bulk of our tioops must come, as in the
past they have come, from the ranks ot
tho people themselves; and In forming
those regiments the good dono by the
pretence In them of men who have served
faithfully In (he National Guard cannot
be overestimated. These men arc ready.
They know what Is expected of them.
They train others (o df tho work that Is
needed. And another thing, ladles and
gentlemen, the same qualities that make
a man a success, thnt make him do his
duty decently and honestly In a National
Guard regiment, are fundamentally the
qualities that he needs to make him a
good citizen In private life.
No doubt some of you were in the Span
Ish-American war. (A voice, "es, many
voice, '.jes, many
lilo wild that war
it enough war to
). (A voice, "you
of in"). The only trouble
was that there was not
go around. (Laughter)
got your slice").
"I did," continued the president. "I
was one of the lucky ones."
After relating the anecdote of the am
bitious soldier who entered camp at
Tampa, Fla., at the beginning of the
Spanish-American war nnd was set to
work digging1 kitchen sinks, President
Roosevelt continued: '
So It Is in Citizenship.
Just ns It Is In the army so It Is In citi
zenship. If you aie content to go through
lift waiting for it chance to be a hero you
may wait and the chance muy not come.
The wny to be a good citizen Is to do well
the ordinary, every-day' humdrum work
that comes to citizenship.
Don't you think soY I am sure you do.
The man who wants to wait until a bat
tle comes Is not likely to be the good
fighter; nnd tho citizen who waits for
heroic times is likely to be a mighty bad
I plead with you to do your duty as
National Guardsmen and as citizens. Do
your duty day by day the common, or
dinary duties which, when done, make In
their sum, the citizenship of the nation.
Ladles and gentlemen, I thank you.
It had been the Intention of the presi
dent and- his party to be the guests of
Governor Murphy at luncheon, but the
lateness of the arrival made It neces
sary to forego the luncheon. On the
way to tho cottage a veteran of tho
Civil war and a Grand Army man rush
ed up to the president to grasp his
hand. President Roosevelt greeted him
cordially and said:'
"One of the many good results of the
Spanish-American war Is the apprecia
tion we, of the younger generation, now
have of the value to you old veterans
of that little button which you wear on
the lapel of your coat."
At 3.15 the presidential party board
ed again the special train, and amid
the cheers of the assembled thousands
started for Atlantic Highlands, arriv
ing at the pier at 4 o'clock. At 4.05
the party left for the Mayflower in a
steam launch. As the president was
aboard his launch, ho met and recog
nized Raymond Morse, a fireman on
the preslder'lal special, who had served
as a sergeant in Troop G of the Rough
Riders when Mr. Roosevelt was col

TITLE TO AN ISLAND
- CAUSE OF DISPUTE
Japan Claims It and Sends Warship
to Enforce Claim American Cap
tain Also Claims It.
Dy Kvclusivc Wire fiom The Associated 1'icss.
Yokohama, July 24. It is officially
announced that the Jupunese cruiser
Kusagi will convey a diplomatic agent
of Japan to Marcos island, S00 miles
southwest of Yokohama. The expla
nation Is that it is the desire of the
government to reassure the Japanese
residents and convince them that the
Rosehlll claim is untenable. It is as
serted hero that tho island was an
nexed to Japan in 1898, and that it was
discovered by a Japanese subject in
Washington, July 24. The Japanese
government has served formal notice
on the state department that It claims
possession of Marcos island, toward
which is now heading an American ex
pedition under Captain Rosehlll with a
purpose of exploiting its guana depos
its. Regarding It as extremely desir
able that no collision occur, the state
department has taken measures to ad
vise Captain Rosehlll thnt he must
offer no resistance If he should fall In
with a Japanese warship, which is also
speeding for the Island.
Rosehlll landed on the disputed
Island thirteen years ago, Ho put up n
sign and deposited a bottle setting forth
his claims to the island, erecting a
flagpole and hoisted the United States
flag. Then he sailed away, leaving It
unoccupied, a fact which may vitiate
his title. Of these facts he informed
the state department, but he neglected
for many years to file In the Treasury
department the bond required by the
guano Island laws. In fact, this bond
was only filed within the last year.
Meanwhile, finding a deserted island,
sorne Japanese landed and began to
take away the guano. There are be
lieved to be two score of them now on
the island, and the Japanese govern
ment holds that their title is good.

vate secretary to Governor Stone:
"The newspaper talk about a contro
versy between the governor's daughter
and Miss Quay over the christening ot the
battleship Pennsylvania Is ridiculous. Tho
ship will not be launched until long after
the governor's trrm explrei. It Is entire
ly for the builder, to select any one he
pleases to perfoim' this ceremony and as
Senator Quay has been largely Instru
mental in securing appropriations for tho
battleship, It Is very proper that Ills
daughter bo selected. So far ns Miss
Stone Is concerned, she never thought
of tho selection and together with tho
governor nnd his family will be very glad
the. honor should come to Miss Quay, who
Is'in every way worthy of it."

HI Paso, July 24. A daring hold-up
took place on the Mexican Central at
2.30 o'clock Tuesday morning, just after
the train left Bermljllo. At that point
three 'Americans boarded the train, two
secreting themselves on the blind bag

Tho messenger offered no resistance.
The robbers then went leisurely through
the safe, obtaining $30,000 In currency
consigned to the Banco MInerco, at
Chihuahua. They also took what other
money packages were In the safe, and
remained quiet until the train slowed
down, when they disappeared Into tho
About the time the robbers entered
the express car the conductor of tho
train became engaged In an altercation
xvlth a passenger who refused to pay
his fare. Finally the conductor had the
train stopped and the passenger was
ejected. The robbers alighted at the
same time. The troublesome passen

cause the stopping of the train.

Nantasket', Mass., JUIy 24. In a
great tent on the shore. of Massachu

of men'and not a few women listened
to orators from various parts of the
United States as they dellx-ercd ad

lowed a banquet, the first given by the
recently organized New England Dem

mayor of Boston, was presiding officer,
and William J. Bryan, twice Demo
cratic presidential candidate; Edward x
M. Shepard, of New York, and Senator
Carmack.of Tennessee, made nddresses,
Senator Bailey, of Texas, was expected
to bo present, but he sent a lettern

was 1 o'clock and It was planned that
tho public exereises should begin an
hour later. The guests did not reach
Boston until this morning, coming on
the Federal Express nt 7 o'clock. A
committee met them, at the station and
escorted them to an uptown hotel. For

Mr. Bryan spoke as follows:
Bryan's Idea of Harmony.
In view of the numerous harmony din
ners, and the discord they have created.
It may not be out of place to consider
the basis of harmony. Jefferson laid
down the rules by which, and by which
alone, real harmony can bo secured with
in a. party. I say real harmony for that
harmony cannot be considered worthy of
tho name which, like the harmony tem
porarily existing between the confidence
man and his victim, h purposely em
ployed for deception and Injury. l
The great founder of the Demlcratlo
party said In a letter to Mr. Lee that
there xvere but two permanent parties,
the aristocratic and tho democratic; that
those two parties existed in every coun
try, nnd that where there was freedom
to think, speak and write, these parties
xvould become apparent. With the aris
tocratic party he classed "those who fear
and distrust the people and wish to draw
all power from them Into the hands ot
the higher classes." With the demo
cratic party, he classed "those who Iden
tify themselves with the people, have
confidence In them, cherish nnd consider
them as the most honest and safe, though
not the most wise, depository of the pub
He Interests." Kvery well-Informed stu
dent of history will recognize this dintlne
tlon. In every community you can draw
a lino separating tho aristocrat frum the
Thero can always be harmony among
Democrats who have the purpose that
Jefteiou had nnd are willing to employ
the methods that Jefferson employed.
There can always be harmony among
Democrats who believe In u gox-ernment
of tho people nnd aro xvllllng that al'
the departments of the government shal
be operated by tho people and for the
benefit of the people. Dtffeiences of tho
mind can be reconciled: differences of
puipoie cannot. The Republican party of
today Is aristocratic in its policies and
tendencies, for It is conti oiled by a few
ill the interest ot a few, but thero ore
many Republicans who remain with their
partv only because they do uo't under
stand the change which has taken plftca
in that party within the last few years.
When tho policy of a party is controlled
by Its voters, the party stands for the
xvlll of the majority, but when the parly
Is dominated by a small minority, then
the organization stands not, for tho will
of the majority, but for the will of thoso
who dominate It. There can be no doubt
of the democrats Instincts ot a largu
majority of the members of the Republi

controlled by organized wealth that the
