Mr. Powderly said: "U is fitting
that labor's voico should be raised for

this hat come through the leadership
of Samuel Gompers."
Samuel Gompers said: "It takes
more courage today to engage In tho
silent, patient sncrlllco of life than It
docs to go Into tho carnage or war.

CHINESE FAMINE IS WORSE
Five Thousand Dying Daily and Graves j
Are Being Rifled for Food. j
Shanghai, April 13. Telegrams re
ceived here from twenty points in the j
ramine district report that the con
ditions are growing worse.
The Chinese government and people '
up to date have contributed over $!, ,
000,000 for famine relief, and the j
sums received from all lorelgn sources '
total $500,000. i
The members of the committee at
the front report that they find tho
bodies ol the sun'crers bloated and
that their faces turn green or black us
the remit of starvation. The people
arc pulling up the greying crops lor (
tood. Wliole families have been
louud di-iul in their houses, and
corpses are been lylnj
her of dead beyond tho fact that ho
had seen nbout n dozen dead bodies
and know of about thirty wounded.
A disivatch to El Pals, tho organ of
tho Catholic church here, from the
bishop of Chllapa confirms the roport
of the total destruction wrought In
that neighborhood. Fourteen are re
ported to havo been killed in ono
bouso and tho number of wounded Is
given at thirty-nine.
Twelve Killed at Tixtla.
In Tixtla it is reported that twelve
dead bodios have been taken from the
ruins and that twico that number of
wounded aro being cared for. The op
erator at Cliilpaneingo reports that
the stato government has provided
tents lor tho homeless.
Up to 4 a. in. tho shocks continued
with more or less severity In tho vicin
ity of Cliilpaneingo, doing some dam
nire tn nubile bulldiuKs. The hos
pitals, schools and tho jail aro in
ruins. The prisoners from the jail
were placed under guard by the
rurales. Up to this timo tho total
number of deaths reported is thirty-
eight and the wounded ninety-three.
However, in view or Inter reports, it is
thought thcE-o figures will fall fur short
of the real number or ratalities.
It is tepoited that Acapulco is part
ly submerged by great waves. On the
night or tho first, shock the barber
took on tho appearance of a typhoon
swept ocean. Just how much of tho
port has been submerged is not
known. A vague message says that
j "the houses as far as tho church are
I under water." A number of ships wero
in the harbor at the lime, but, it Is
I said, all escaped.

had made the filings that they could
make $300 out or the proposition on
final proof. Tho government attor
neys brought out the admission from
Hull that ho had been solicited by
Huntington to seeuro old soldiers to
make filings In the grazing country
and that good money was to bo made
out of it, and that the ranch owned in
nart by V. G. Comstoek would be the
direct beneficiary of these filings and
entries, and stood back of the general
