PANIC IN ADJOINING HOTEL.
Wild Excitement In Morton House.
Three Hundred Guests Flee In Their
Nlghtclothes Women Saved From
Death Starts In Storage Room.
Now York , Jan. 2 , Flro was dlscov-
cred early this morning In the storage' '
room of Keith's Union Square the
ater. The flames were first seen by
the engineer of the Morton house ,
which adjoins the theater , and ho
gave the alarm. There were 300
guests In the hotel , who were hurried
ly notified and made their escape to
the street , clad In their night gar
ments. The halls and corridors of
the hotel were filled with srnoko and
the guests on the upper floors wore
compelled to grope their way to the
The excitement In the hotel was
ndded to by the firemen dragging
long lines of hose through the halls
BO that they could get the streams to
play on the rear of the theater.
There were wild scenes In the hotel
na the guests , porters , waiters nnd
maids ran screaming to the street.
Many of the women fainted and were
carried out , but a search of the hotel
eeomcd to satisfy the police that all
were able to roach places of saftoy.
Within 20 minutes after its discov
ery the flro had eaten Its way to the
stores adjoining on the east. The
Morton house Is on the west. The
clothing store of Benson & Co. was
eoon destroyed , as was the cigar store
of Manuel Diaz. The rapidity with
which the flames spread through the
theater was because of a quantity of
oils , paints and a huge mass of scen
ery , which was in the storage room.
The fumes and gas from this inflam
mable stuff hampered the firemen In
their work , as they were repeatedly
driven from the b'asement to the
While the department was trying
to overcome the blaze in the basement
a number of flremen went into tuo
main portion of the theater and from
the stage carried out the tanks con
taining 17 seals , comprising Wood
ward's troupe. Meanwhile lines of
hose were carried to the stage arm
held in readiness should the flames
break through the floor from the base
ment. This basement Is called fire
proof. It was one mass of flames
from end to end and on the strength
of Its fireproof qualities depended the
eafety of the theater proper.
At 3:30 : a. m. Chief Croker an
nounced that he thought he had the
fire under control. A rough estimate
of the present damage Is $250,000.

San Francisco , Jan. 2. Five of the

cipal part. On Tuesday morning the

hospital. The two who died are Ed
ward L. Canfleld and William Michael.
The officers in charge of the island
military post made efforts to keep the
facts of the death of the prisoners
from becoming public , but the story
leaked out through the gossip of sol
dier guards at the prison. Hospital
attendants said that one of those in
the hospital was so affected by the
poison that his sight had left him.

MICHIGAN SHUTS OUT STANFORD
Ann Arbor Team Outclasses the Cali
fornia Devon ,
Pasadena , Cal. , Jan. 2. Hy the dc-
: lalvo score of 4'J to 0 the Michigan
university football team yesterday de
feated Stanford university. The score
Is quite In proportion to the general
euporlorlty of the eastern men at the
game of footlmll , It does not , how
ever , toll thd story of Stanford's des
perate , but futile , efforts against de
feat. Michigan's superior knowledge
of the game showed In every play. At
kicking , general team work , running ,
tackling and bucking the line , the
Michigan men excelled. Perhaps the
strongest , feature of their playing was
the phenomenal punting of Swoolny ,
Michigan's right end. In every ex
change of punts Stanford lost ground ,
which she could not regain.
Three times In the first half Michi
gan succeeded In sending a man over
the line , but once falling to add a goal.
The first half ended with the score :
Michigan. 17 ; Stanford , 0.
The second half was an exhibition
of fast football. Michigan wont at
their opponents with all the knowl
edge of the game luid the weight of
their plavors. They hit Stanford's
line In the middle and they went
around the ends. They advanced then
15 to 20 yards on a play on fake pass
es , fake kicks nnd every other known
football device. In fact , so fast and
furious was their pln.y . that Stanford
was bewildered and know not how to
stop the encroaches upon her goal.
Once or twice the Callfornlans hold
the conquerors for downs , but the
arrested progress of the Ann Arbor
men was extremely brief. Again and
again Snow for Michigan went over
the line for touchdowns and Shorts
kicked goal until 49 points were scored.

RELEASED FROM PENITENTIARY.
After Nearly Five Years of Confine
ment the Uncxplrcd Remainder of
His Twenty-Year Term Is Com
muted and He Goes Free.
Lincoln , .Ian. 1. Former Treasurer
Joseph 11. Hartley , Bonloncod In 1807
to 20 years' Imprisonment lor the cm-
bozzlement uf public Hindu , last night
walked out uf thu state penitentiary a
frco man. Uito yuutonlay tifturnoon
his sentence was commuted to llvu
years , seven niontliB and eight days ,
which term expired yesterday , and at
7 o'clock lust night the official dls-
charge , signed by tho. governor , waa
delivered by Private Secretary Clan-
coy to Mrs. Dartloy , wife of the prison
er , at her home , 1C4D C street. A few
minutes later Mies I ml a Hartley , the
prisoner's daughter , took the papers
to the penitentiary and upon their
presentation to Warden Davis her
father was Immediately released.
In commuting the sentence the gov
ernor made allowance for the time
Hartley passed In the Jail of Douglas
eounty , which amounts to about one
year. Good time was also allowed
from the day the man was placed In
confinement. Hartley was brought to
the penitentiary July 0 , 1898.
Governor Savage's Statement.
Governor Savage says In part :
"My action In the Hartley case Is the
fruition of careful Inquiry and mature
deliberation. After 1 became gov
ernor of this state , among the cases
calling for executive clemency was
this one. Such preliminary examina
tion as I was able at the time to make
Inclined mo In favor of exercising
clemency in Mr. Hartley's behalf. I
believed at that time and conceived
the Idea that his rcleaso could bo I
turned to the advantage of the state , j
With this end in view , on the 13th
day of July , 1901 , I released Mr. Bart-
ley on parole for a period of GO days
with the Intent during that period of
completing my Investigation of the
case and final determination whether
I should , or should not , exercise exec
utive clemency In his behalf.
"On Aug. 28 , before I had my plans
perfected , the Republican state con
vention adopted a. resolution requestIng -
Ing the Immediate roturrt of Hartley to
the penitentiary. Though I felt keenly
the discourtesy and was amazed at
the Intrusion upon the constitutional
rights of the chief executive I forth
with obeyed the mandate of the con
vention , and that same night Mr. Bart-
ley was again behind the prison
walls. Since that time I have carefully
Inquired Into the facts and merits of
the case to the best of my Judgment
"It has been frequently remarked
that Mr. Hartley's sentence , rendered
as it was at a time of high political
excitement , was something more than
an unbiased application of the law , |
and It has been not infrequently urged
that the personal equation entered i
Into It In a marked degree. In the
name of the Republican party , I hope
that It may never be truthfully said I
that for the sake of office , party su-1
premacy , or political preferment It
trafficked In human liberty , the one
great prlnci lo to whoso protection
and conservatism it has dedicated Its
Intelligence , Its energies and best ef
forts of Its 1 : e.
"While my action In the premises Is
based entirely upon my own conclu
sions , I am mindful of the fact that in
taking this view of the case I am sup
ported by thousands of the best citi
zens of this state. "

prayer and song , with tolling of bells

Another Discovery Announced by Pro
fessor Jacques Loeb.
Chicago , Jan. 1. 1'rofusHur Jacques
Loeb of the University of Chicago
yesterday , In a paper read before a
section of the American Society of
Naturalists convention , made the an
nouncement that ho had discovered
the physical processes that accompany
life and that electricity and not heai
energy Is the basis of life. Ho does
not claim to have solved the problem
of "what Is life , " but to have proved
a theory which overthrown a funda
mental portion of the teachings of text
books on physiology.
"Tho energy of foodstuffs , " Pro
fessor Loub said , as a conclusion , "tnid
the motions of heart , are not , after
all , due to the production of heat , butte
to the chemical energy In electrically
charged molecules , " and again ho put
It this way : "A part of the chemical
energy of foodstuff IH transformed Into
electrical energy , which , In turn , gives
energy to the muscles and organs of
the body. "

Havana , Jan. 2. The Indications
are that the entire I'alma ticket will

colvo the unanimous vote of the elec

tolomo Maso , the democratic candl
date , who recently withdrew from the

candidates , but refused to go to the
polls. A romairkably light vote was
polled throughout the Island. La
Discussion described this Indifference
to the certainty on the part of the
Palmalsts of being victorious and
that consequently the majority of
them did not voto. La Luchla says
that this light vote can bo taken as a
protest from the Cuban people
against the Imposition of otllclal can
dldates. The Dlaro do la Marina says
that t'.io result Is an Indication that
the Cuban democracy may look upon
American policy as Inevitable.
