Reynolds, Redfleld,. .Lane, Burleson,
Wilson, Heuston, Garrison, Daniels.
Not until President Wilson sent the
names to the senate for. confirmation
was his family of advisers officially
made known. The cabinet follows:'
Secretary of State William Jen

Secretary of Treasury William G.
McAdoo of New York.

Secretary of the Interior Franklin

Secretary of Agriculture David E.
Houston of Missouri.
Secretary of Commerce Represent
ative William C. Redfleld of New York.
Secretary of Labor Representative
William B. Wilson of Pennsylvania.
The Taft cabinet was composed en
tirely of conservatives. The Wilson
official family presents strange contra
dictions. McAdoo, secretary of the treasury;
Burleson, postmaster general, and
Reiltield, secretary of commerce, havo
long been recognized as conservatives.
Bryan and Daniels, secretary of the
navy, have trained together for years.
They are stout advocates of the "new
idea" in politics.
Lane, secretary of the Interior, is a
Roosevelt Democrat. He was appoint
ed to the interstate commerce com
mission by Roosevelt and has never
made any bones of his admiration for
Houston, tecretary of agriculture, is
unknown In a political sense.
McReynolds, attorney general. Is

for all White House statements to be

with Mr. Wilson. He handed out a
typewritten slip in the first person an

net If he had so desired.
BERRY A CANDIDATE
Former Pennsylvania Treasurer Would
Be U. S. Treasurer.
William H. Berry, former state
treasurer of Pennsylvania, and the
man who made the unsuccessful fight
as the Keystone candidate for gover
nor against John K. Tener, will, in all
probability, be the next treasurer of
the United States.
He is being strongly urged for the
place by National Committeeman A.
Mitchell Palmer and the Pennsylvania
Democratic organization. His name
ha.-i been presented to President Wil
son and Secretary of the Treasury
William G. McAdoo.
Palmer says that Berry made an
enviable record as state treasurer of
Pennsylvania and is entitled to recog
nition. He also points to the fact that
Berry, as an independent candidate for
governor in 1910, polled almost 400.00D
votes with a regular Democratic and
Republican candidate In the field. If
the treasurership does not come to
Berry it can be stated that he w!U
lerlve some substantial recognition
from President Wilson.
Hand Worth More Than Life.
That a left hand Is considered of
more value than a human life was
shown by verdicts returned by Juries
in Washington county. Pa. Stella
Rybosky was awarded $1,200 for the
loss of her husband, who was killed in
the mines. The widow has eight chil
dren. Another Jury returned a verdict
awarding Henry Stephenson $1,230 for
the loss ot his left hand while at work
in a mine.

CUP CHALLENGE ARRIVES
New York Yacht Club May Depend
on Old Defender Reliance.
Sir Thomas Upton's challenge for
America's cup was delivered to G. A.
Curmack, secretary of the New York
Yacht club, last week.
It is no secret that the members of
the club do not look favorably on the
challenge. These members would
liave preferred some other British
yachtsman, but no Britisher seems dis
posed to challenge as long as Sir
Thomas is in the game.
If the challenge is accepted it is pos
sible that the defending club will rely
on the Reliance, which in the opinion
of many has not yet been pushed.

TO RESCUE TWO
Gallantry Swells List ol Victims
in Dynamite Disaster
IH1RTY ARE DEAD; MANY DYING
Fire Aboard Steamer Lying Off Balti
more Causes Explosion of .300 Tons
of Dynamite Men Torn to Pieces.
By a curious irony of fate it was the
Instinct of mercy and brave men's
gallant responses to the appeal of two
of their fellows lu imminent and
deathly danger that swelled to such
great proportions the list of killed and
injured by the explosion of 300 tons
of dynamite aboard the British steam
ship Alum Chine off Fort Howard,
. Thirty are known dead in the
disaster, more probably whose bodies
are 'burled in the icy waters of the
harbor, and scores are injured, over
many of whom death hovers. The loss
probably will total $600,000.
Of the injured a score are frightfully
maimed, their skulls fractured, arms
and legs torn off and their bodies
lacerated. At least fifteen are expect
ed to die.
Curling smoke from the Alum Chine
Showed the crew, the stevedores en
gaged in loading her from a barge and
the crew of the tug Atlantic lying
alongside that death was in the air.
Every "man knew In an instant the
coal bunkers were on fire and that
within a fe.v minutes the heat and
flames would reach the dynamite.
There was a rush to the ship's side.
The crew and stevedores tumbled
aboard the little launch Jerome. Most
of the other seamen and the steve
dores leaped for the decks of the At
lantic. Hurriedly the two small boats
sped away from the doomed ship.
The Atlantic wsb rapidly reaching a
place of safety when t.vo figure were
seen claniboring from the hold of tha
Alum Chine. They were two sailors
who had been left behind. They
reached the sides of the vessel and
sent up piteous appeals for help.
Despite the danger that menaced
him and his vessel Captain W. K. Van
Dyke of the Atlantic heard and heed
ed the call. He gave the orders that
turned the Atlantic's nose again to
ward the doomed steamship.
With the two sailors aboard the At
lantic again sought safety, but sought
it too late. With a roar the dynamite
exploded. For a moment a dense pall
of smoke covered the waters. When
It cleared away ship and barge had
disappeared and the Atlantic, a dis
mantled hulk, had become a human
Death In a dreadful form had de
scended from the sky. The Alum
Chine had been torn into shreds and
boxes of dynamite mingling with the
flying fragments of steel and timber
filled the air. These fell on the packed
decks of the Atlantic, the dynamite
exploding as it fell and sweeping those
on board as a charge of shrapnel
levels charging troops.
Men's heads and limbs were torn
from their bodies. Blood was every
where. From ships and launches near
by watchers saw dismembered bodies
slung across and tumbled about the
A half mile from the scene of the
explosion is the quarantine hospital.
There are about twelve patients there
and not one of them escaped injury.
The hospital was battered and scarce
ly a pane of glass left. Mrs. Richard
son, wife of the quarantine physician,
was severely injured by the concus
Blon. The damage was enormous.
Near by lay the I'nited States col
lier Jason ready for her trial trip.
After the explosion she resembled a
battered practice ship. Four men were
killed outright and twenty-seven In
jured by the explosion. Captain
Thompson, in charge of the special
crew of the big collier, had a wry
narrow escape. He was tossed Into
the air fully six or seven feet by the
force of the explosion.
The shock was felt as far away as
Reading, Pa., 100 miles from Balti
more. It was recorded also at Atlantic
City. People at first thought an earth
quake had occurred.
Baltimore Itself was shaken as If by
a powerful trembling of the earth and

70 DIE IN NAVAL DISASTER
Cruiser Ram Torpedo Boat and Sends
Small Boat to Bottom.
Different versions are given of the
Herman naval disaster which occurred
when the cruiser Yorck rammed and
sunk the torpedo boat destroyer S1T8
off the Island of Heligoland in the
Two officers and sixty-eight men of
the smaller vessel were drowned. The
torpedo boat went down so quickly
that only fifteen of her crew of eighty
five were saved. Lieutenant Pies, the
commander of the sunken vessel, was
among those lost.
Night maneuvers were going on and
the vessels were operating without
lights. The cruisers and battleships
were running along at full speed in
single file. S178 tried to pass through
this column between the Yorck and
another cruiser. It appears that he
miscalculated the distance, for the
cruiser came down on hi vessel and
sent her to the bottom, cutting her in
two. This Is the genpfally accepted

Galbreath In which he refused the

It provides for an automatic distri
