The tires in tho furnaces had been
Started for the first time yesterday and
the vats were full of liquid glass It
was upon these that the victims fell
Some wore killed instantly and others
were slowly roasted to death The
few who missed the furnaces or rolled
otf together with the workmen in the
plnss works saved the lives of many
who lay unconscious hy pulling them
nway from their horrible resting
places The police and tire department
were soon at hand and every patrol
wagon nnd ambulance in the city was
puinmoned They were not enough
nnd express wagons and private car
riages were pressed Into service to
carry off the dead and wounded Many

stituting u provision that the guilty
Khali be punished by the Chinese in a
manner acceptable to tho powers or
that the terms of the note shall not
be irrevocable but may be modified by
negotiations with tho Chinese envoys
Russia has thus again proclaimed how
