over forty dead were said to have
been seen along the track between
Michel end Prank. In one lumbet
camp eltcht dead are reported.
Wires' are Mill down In the burning
area, and the only authentlTnews Is

Families were separated, and children,
having no one to guide them, wander

were cut off. Shortly after the fire

of flame ran through the west town to
the bridge, cvttlng off this avenue ot
Tales Told by Survivors.
Many harrowing talcs are told. One
woman of West Fernle had Just
emerged from her home, which was
on tire. She dropped dead of heart

her garden and I hen ran for their lives.

children Two other children, as he
supposed, bad gone ahead with his

had Ihhmi cut off and had perished.
Woman With Baby Lost.
In another Instance, while the bridge
was burning, a woman rushed to the
bank of the river with a child In her
arms The woter nt that point was
turbulent, the current being broken by
rocks. She tried to slgial those on
the east bank and. falling, started to
wade across. Hut the current threat,
ened to sweep ber off her feet, and
she was forced to return. She wept,
tore her hair and prayed till she fell
exhausted. Shu lay for a time on the
ground till a burning cedar fell uear
bur, rouslug her Again she ran to
the wutor, holding her baby up to
those on the othur bank There being
no sign of sld, she finally hunted up a
log, tied the baby on It with a sbnwl
and then pushed It out Into the stream
with n iole, In the hope that an eddy
would carry It across. Hut the log
rolled over anil over and the shawl
came loose and tho child disappeared.
As the fire came nearer the mother
wnded Into thn stream again. When

IN HAZERS' CASE
President Issues an Official
DAS NOT SENT THEM BACK
Denies Announcements Made by 8scre
tary Loeb and Secretary Wright Con
cernlng Eight Cadets Dismissed From
West Point For Hazing Underotaes
Students Reported Action In Matter
Had Met With Criticism as Sub
versive of Military Discipline.
Oyster Hay, N. Y Aug. 4. Whether
the dismissal from West Point of the
eight cadets who had liocn found
guilty of hazing Is to be made perma
nent or the young men reinstated
through congressional action or execu
tive clemency. Is still undetermined.
This attitude of the government Is set
torth In nn official statement Issued
by President Itoosevelt through Act
ing Pilvute Secretary Iludolph Foster.
The president characterizes as er
romsms contrary announcements made
earlier by Secretary Loeb aud Secre
tary of War Wright. He explains
that the president has not ns yet heard
finally from the secretary of war ns
to the hitter's recommendations 111 the
matter and that therefore the execu
tive has reached no final decision. By
Secretary Lisdi the president had boon
represented ns approving the dismissal
of the cadets. Subsequently and fol
lowing it i-onferenee with Mr. Itoose
velt Secretary Wright told the news
Uor men that n decision to tvlnstute
the nITctiilltig cadets had lieen reached.
The following statement by the pres.
blent at Sagamore Hill follows:
The President's Statsment.
"No action whatever has been taken
by the president In the cases of the
cadets, the statement that they were
originally nnlcnsl dismissed nnd that
the) have liocu ordered kept being
"An appeal was originally made to
the president to Interfere. He declined
to take nny action or to Interfere In
nil) way until the secretary of wnr
had ovpressiil his opinion, the view
of Ihe ilcp.ti uncut then being seeming,
ly thai the emlels should be turned
out, the secretary not having come to
nny final ibi Won.
"The sistvtnry then notllicil the pres
ident that Instead of making any re
port he would like to illseiiss the mai
ler with the president lu ieison. He
accordingly came on, nnd the discus
slon was held, but no final decision
was reached, the secretary stating
that he ts not able to make n final and
definite recommendation ns to all of
the cases nnd profcired to make none
ns regards any until he could do It as
"The president has not yet beard
finally from the secretary and there
fore, of c-ourso, has come to no final
"This Is the first announcement that
the president has made In the matter
at nil. nnd he has never nt any time
come to nny decision one way or the
other, excepting lo slnle that he would
probably follow the views of the de
partment." -Loeb and Wright Contradicted.
Secretary Lis'b statisl that Mr.
Itoosevelt had et his approval upon
the findings of the Inwril of Inquiry,
1lu report of which had Ihnmi for
warded from the war department In
Washington for his examination. Sec
retary Loeb iidibsl that this action was
final and explained Hint the cadets
niuld lie reinstalls! only by net of con
gress. The president, the secretary
inade clear, had strongly approved the
papers, which had then lieen returned
Two days later dispatches from
Washington stated that Secretary

Following the publication generally
of Secretary Wright's unequivocal
statement that a decision had lsnn
reached thai the cadets should be re
Instatisl. there has been criticism of
what was represented In some In
stances as n weakening of military
discipline, and a disposition to set the
matter light is mppiwisl to have call

president had reached no conclusion
In the matter and that hs views hail

Mr. llarrlman seemed to favor a

rather than a general Increase, lie
believed that many rates were too low
and should be Increased, but he was
opposed to a straight Id per cent In

"How can I tellT" was the reply, ac
companied by a despairing wave of

"I don't care to talk about wages,"
said Mr. llarrlman. "But the railroad

that lies In him."
Questions Asked and Answered.
Ur. llarrlman was asked this ques

"Simply because they are after
