KOUROPATKIN ACCEPTS" COM
MAND OF FIRST ARMY.
In Spite of Reverses He Is Considered
the Best General and Foremost
Strategist Changes Positions With
St. Petersburg, March 22. The Huh
a I an tiiiny in Muueliurlii Ih still to
auvo the services of Uunernl Kouro
patklti, who Is considered by many, in
pilo of his series of reverses, the
best general and foremost strategist
ef the Russian army. Sinking nil feel
ing or personal bitterness because of
lis stipercesslon and all the old time
enmity between himself and General
Lincvltch In a patriotic desire to bo
or service to the fatherland, the form
er conimnndor-ln-clilcf volunteered to
remain In nny capacity with the army
which ho hnd so long commanded.
The tender has been nccopted by 13m
juror Nicholas and grntefully received
ly the new leader of the grand army.
The change exactly reverses the old
order of affairs, when Kouropatkln
was the supremo loader and Llnevltch
directed the First army.
Authoritative news of this, remark
alilo step was known in Manchuria
aiuch earlier than In St. Petersburg.
General Kouropatkln, having pauscrt
en his homeward journey at Harbin,
started southward tho afternoon of
Starch 20, amidst a most remarkable
iarcwell from residents of Ilnrbln and
soldiers who nro on tho way to 1111 out
tho ranks of tho depleted army. The
send-off was a mere foretaste of what
awaits General Kouropatkln at tho
front, and his self-sacrificing deter
mination and the equally patriotic
course of General Llnevltch In accept
ing tho services tendered are bound
to do wonders for tho relnsplrntlon of
tho emperor's legions and glvo prom
ise of union nnd harmony at tho coun
cil table which that army has hitherto
Retreat Progressing Uneventfully.
Tho retreat is apparently progress
es uneventfully. No dispatches of
moment were received.
Little weight Is plnced here on tho
deduction drawn nt certain European
flapltals from tho dispatch announc
ing that ennnonading had been henrd
nouth of Tie pass, that General Rcn
aenknmpff's corps, endeavoring to re
join the mnln army, had been Inter
cepted south of Tie pass. Tho dis
patch In question undoubtedly was
erroneous and It may bo pointed out
that several correspondents nt tho
front have mentioned the orderly ro
tre.at of General LInevltch's army
iml asserted that It effected a concen
tration at Tie pass with scarcely a
straggler missing, but made no men
lion of the absence of so well known
a fighter as Itennenkampff. In addi
tion tho Associated Press correspond
ent. M. Tolsukoff. who wns with Hen
acnkniupff's commnnd during tho bat
tle, has arrived at general hendquar
lers, slightly wounded.
Preparations nro now mnklng for
Oic mobilization of a number of now
detachments, not, however, on a gen
eral scnle, the preliminary orders af
fecting but twenty-two districts In tho
governments of Odessa, Warsaw and
Renewal of Agrarian Troubles.
Recurrences and extensions of
tgrarlan troubles are noted nnd near
Llbau workmen and peasants are mak
ing common cause. The Caucasus Is
already tho scene of armed resistance
to the forces of civil authority and In
tlie region around Kieff, where tho
Beasants are Increasingly bold, thero
Mavo been ninny cases of violence.
The labor leaders in tho great Indus
trial centers are plainly planning to
synchronize a general renewal of the
strike with tho climax of the peasant
disorders and with tho action of tho
troops In mind have been serving no
bee by anonymous letters and other
warnings on guard officers hero and
officials In other cities that ir another
"red Sunday" comes and they order
the troops to fire they will be held re
sponsible therefor and tholr lives bo
Biade tho forfeit.

Drocklon, Mass., Mnrrh 21. This
city Is in mourning for r.t least three
Ecoro of her citizens, whoso lives were
blotted out by tho explosion of a
boiler in a large shoe manufacturing
establishment, in the Cnmpcllo dis
trict, conducted by tho R. 11. Grover
company. The explosion was Imme
diately followed by a Hash of ilame,
which consumed the factory, a long,
four-story structure, as If It were n
house of cards, and Incinerated an
unknown number of men unil women,
who were unable to extricate them
selves from a mass of tangled wreck
ngo formed by the torrlflo upheaval
in tho boiler room. Moro than 100
of tho employes In tho building were
mnlmed, burned or bruised by tho
tlmo they had reached safe ground. ,
Some had jumped from the rooff,
eoino from windows and others had
been injured in the mnd rush to es
cape from tho doomed factory, which
from nil parts cmL.ed tho Intense,
awful heat of an Inferno, driving back
tho band of heroic rescuers, who In a
few brief moments had performed gal
The lire extended from tho factory
to seven other buildings In the vicin
ity and destroyed them. One of tho
buildings was a three-story wodlen
block, owned by Charles F. Dahlborg.
tho others being cottages of small
value and a blacksmith Bhop. The
wooden dwellings near tho engine
room were practically demolished by
tho ilylng boiler, but nono of the oc
cupants was seriously Injured. Tho
total financial loss is estimated at
$250,000, $200,000 of which falls on
tho R. B. Grover company. Tho mon
etary losses aro nearly covered by
Many Unaccounted For.
It may never bo known just how
many persons perished in the wreck
age. No ono knows exactly how many
persons wero in tno factory. Tho
number has been estimated at 400, but
Treasurer Emerson said ho doubted
whether thero wero so many at work.
Two hundred and fifty survivors have
been accounted for and tho remains
of fifty-live bodies have been recovered
from tho ruins, tho search being con
tinued all night. Fragments of human
frames, which possibly might belong
to bodies other than those enumer
ated, havo also been found. Few of
tho remains have been Identified. Tho
head in nearly every Instance is miss
ing and, except in rare Instances, it
wns impossible to distinguish tho sex.
Chief of Pollco Doyden expressed
the opinion that some of the em
ployes hal not reached tho factory at
tho time, of the explosion and that un
doubtedly a number of those living in
nearby places wore Injured and had
gone home without reporting their In
juries. Ho thought that many of
those unaccounted for, upwards of
100 In number, were among these.
Thq disaster was attended by many
harrowing scones nnd thrilling res
cues. For hours hundreds of tho rela
tives of tho factory operatives be
sieged the ruins and the fire and po
llco stations In quest of missing ones.
Some in their violent grief nnd ago
nizing stress of mind, collapsed.
Several of the rescuers and search
ers fainted as they beheld tho dis
tressing scene. Thero was no trace
of the body of David W. Rockwell,
engineer of tho plant, who wns not
seen nftor the explosion. It is sup
posed that ho perished at his post.
