Tollurlde , Colo. , Nov. 22. The do-
Tclopments in the Smuggler-Union
mine disaster have not served to re

the same as last night , 22 dead and
one in a precarious condition from
inhaling the deadly gas and smoke
drawn into the mine from the burning
buildings about the mouth of the Bul
lion tunnel. It is possible that a
ccarch of the ninth level , which Is still
in part inaccessible , will reveal the
bodies of other victims , but n party
headed by Superintendent Edgar Col

bodies. The unexplored portion of

length. Superintendent Collins said

Bald two or three men are raising ,
but It Is not certain , as the men are
mostly foreigners and many of them
did not report after making their escape

clearing away the debris of the burned
buildings and repairing the tramway
has already begun , but it Is said that
it will bo some time before the mine

tion asking that all business houses

review. Mr. Taggart stated the the
ory of the prosecution to bo that
Ayres was murdered by Mrs. Donlne
and that she gained admission to his
room through the window. , reaching
that by means of the flro escape. Ho

SITUATION BECOMING SERIOUS.
Growing Resentment at British Colonial
nial Secretary's Remarks Soldiers
Continue to Hold Anti-Chamberlain
Meetings London Press Alarmed.
Berlin , Nor. 22. Fresh offense
npaliiBt Mr. Chamberlain , the British
colonial secretary , has been taken In
Germany over an open letter , ropio
duced here , In which Mr. Chamber
lain alludes to the "socalled ueltntlon
In Germany , HO evidently artificial
nnd entirely based on inlsapproht'ii
nlon of my speech , " and says that ho
does not propose to notice It , bul that
"no sensible Gorman could bo af-
fionted by my wonlH justifying Bill-
Ish action In the Transvaal. "
The North Gorman Gazette , sc'iul-
official , hitherto silent on the imbjwt ,
today denounces Mr. Clmmhoiluln'H
original utterances at Edinburgh as
Inconsldcruto and offensive , but con
siders thorn to have been nuvlllled by
the letter. The paper exhorts the
army not to ho affected or persuaded
Into Joining in the agitation. Sol
diers , however , continue to hold antl-
London , Nov. 22. The fact that the
anti-Chamberlain agitation in Ger
many has at last extracted n seml-
olllclal expression of approval from
the North Gorman Gazette has hud
the effect of convincing the British
press that the situation Is becoming
serious. Now the papers are taking
the trouble to explain that Mr. Cham
berlain's comments on the brutality of
Germans during the war with France
wore not intended to Insult or offend
"Tho temper of the German public
Is dangerous , " says the Morning
Post , "nnd It behooves our people to
bo on their guard. The Germans np
pear to regard Great Britain as cov
ctous , rapacious and barbarous.
From that belief to the corollary that
a barbarous nation ought to bo sup
pressed Is a short and easy stop. "
Referring to the scurrilous at
tacks made by the Gorman press , the
Dally Chronicle says : "Unless the
authorities restrain the unlicensed
abuse of England In the Gorman press
wo fall to see how this country can
much longer Ignore accumulated In
The Standard and the Dally Tele
graph are much less alarmist In tone ,
but they recognize that "such agltaj
tlons , even when artificial , are not al
ways harmless and It Is a good thing
that the relations between the two
governments are so friendly and that
Queen Victoria's blood runs In the
kaiser's veins. "
All the papers publish long specials
from Berlin describing the public feel
Ing and declaring that the article In
the North German Gazette is proof
that the German emperor is power
less to stem the agitation , which Is In
tended , If possible , to force Count von
Buolow into some anti-British pro

London , Nov. 22. The Pretoria cor
