Nothing in re Kard to the United States battleship Kentucky Is coming direct from Smyr na. The authorities there are evident ly censoring all dispatches. CONSTANTINOPLE, Thursday, Nov. 29. The opinion is expressed in diplo matic circles that the American claims arising from the Armenian massacres " -."may now be regarded as practically . ' settled, as an irade providing for the building of a cruiser in the United States is officially promulgated." The question of the consulate at Har- poot remains open, the porte persist . lng in its refusal to grant an exe quatur to Dr. Thomas H. Norton. The moral effect, uowever, created by the presence of the United States battle- .ship Kentucky at Smyrna in support of '. the representations of the American . : legation, taken in conjunction with the settlement of the other claims, leads the legation to nope for an early ar rangement of all outstanding differ- . ences. 'LONDON, Dec. 1. A Reuter dis ,. - patch from Constantinople says t is suggested that Russia is prompting the . ""porte to refuse to grant an exequatur " to Dr. Norton. The dispatch adds: "It is an open secret that they dislike the . .foreign consuls in Asia Minor, espe " cially the Americans, whom they sus pect of aiding the American mission work in Armenia." . WASHINGTON, Dec 1. No propo - .Sit ion haR come to the United States y government from Turkey looking to . the payment of the missionary claims .under the guise of an order for a war - -: ship to be built in the United States. . "-.While it is hardly expected that any . . 'formal proposition of this kind will be ' I "forthcoming, it is, of course, beyond the power of the state department to :. prevent or interfere with any arrange ment with American shipbuilders and . individual claimants. The point is, after all, to have the claims paid and ,. the state department officials are not . Vr particular as to the form in which the ' .payments are paid. Perhaps they are indifferent in this respect because of "Knowledge of the fact that the Turk- ish government might be terribly em barrassed by the pressure of Euro- .. pcan creditors were the United States government to instst upon certain forms of procedure in this case. There are no developments in the ne gotiations respecting the exequatur of Dr. Norton, who would be United 0 States consul at Harpoot. The matter is still one of correspondence and the authorities here are confident that the . Turkish government will, in the end, . yield on this point. BOLOMEN TO BE HANGED.

FlfTY INJttfl e Victim Keaat ea Faraaees ia Sight ef Friends Beef Gives Way trader Frcesare It Wat Ket BalU te Wlthttaad. SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 30 By the collapse of the roof of the San Fran cisco and" Pacific glass works at Fif teenth and Bryant streets about sixty persons were more or less injured, some of them fatally. At 3:15 o'clock the number of dead was-reported as ten. The victims were watching the foot ball game between the Stanford and University of- California teams when the rooTbeneath' them gave way, pre cipitating them to the floor of the fac tory. Some of them fell upon the fur naces and one man of unknown iden tity was burned almost to a crisp. The crash of the falling roof was heard a great distance away and thousands of people hurried to the scene. Mes sages were sent to the city receiving hospital and the morgue and all the available ambulances were hurried to the spot. At the Central receiving hospital at 1 o'clock five of the Injured had been received. At the time of the accident there was but one doctor on duty at the hospital and he was totally unable to attend the cases at they came in. A summons was sent out immediately calling upon, doctors in the neighbor hood to come and render assistance. Owing to the confusion existing at that time the name of but one of the injured has been learned. That one was Al BBsmann, who was frightfully cut about the head and face. The crowd was gathered upon the roof of a building directly over the furnaces of the glass works. When the roof collapsed evry occupant wa precipitated upon the heated top ana rolled off. Fully forty were injured, nearly all of them seriously. Seven of the dead are boys ranging in age from ten to fifteen years. They were found lying in a row and most of them were badly mangled. There were at least 200 people on the roof when, it collapsed.and of these at least sixty went down. Those who were fortunate enough to be on a solid section of the building scurried down and helped remove the injured. The heat around the furnaces was so great, however, that to many no assistance could be rendered and they slowly roasted to death. Not 200 yards away were 20,000 people watching the foot ball game and when the news became known there was intense excitement among them. The ushers went through the crowd calling for doctors and many surgeons hurriedly left the game. The living victims from the disaster were taken to various hospi tals. The Southern Pacific hospital, within two blocks of the glass works, was soon overcrowded and many wounded had to be turned away. They were hurried to St. Luke's, the city receiving hospital and nearby drugstores. So scattered are they among the various institutions that it is impossible to tell exactly how many were hurt or how seriously they were injured. The coroner did not have enough wagons to remove the dead and they were taken away in express wagons. Many elegant private carriages were waiting outside the foot ball grounds and they were pressed into service to take away the wounded. A high fence surrounds the glass works grounds and thousands of people attempted to get inside. They were restrained with difficulty by a large force of police. tJulted States Farther Criticised. BERLIN, Nov. 30. The papers this evening resume their criticism of the course of the United States govern ment, based upon the latest news from Washington. The Berliner Neueste Nachrichten says: "The United States, with Russia, is China's chief defend er." The Freisinnige Zeitung infers from Ambassador White's visit ao the foreign office and Dr. Von Holleben's call upon President McKinley and Sec retary Hay that serious differences of opinion exist between the United States and Germany. Ambassador White re-asserted today that in hi3 recent interview with the secretary of foreign affairs, Baron Von Richhofen, he did not present the new American note, but only made informal sugges tions which did not require an answer. He doubts that Germany will give an answer to those suggestions. His in sructions from Washington, directing him to seek the inerview with the for eign secretary, were not, he says, a repetition of the Conger instructions. Utah Forest Lands Withdrawn. WASHINGTON, Nov. 30. Commis sioner Hermann of the general land of fice has ordered the withdrawal from public entry of 250,000 acres of va cant, unappropriated public domain in Utah, that constitutes the watershed, from which the domestic water supply of Salt Lake City is derived.

Fathar Lacombe, who returned frost Rome a short time ago. is in the city, on his way to his mission field in the' Canadian northwest When told by a reporter that alarming news had been received from Rome regarding the pope's condition, feather Lacombe said: "Yes, the end is very near. The holy father's health was very poor when I saw him a few weeks ago. He received me as usual and questioned me concerning my mission, in which he seemed to take a great interest, but I could not help observing that a great change had taken place since last I saw him. "He appeared thin and emaciated and his voice had a hollow ring. He was very feeble, so feeble in fact that he could not move about without as sistance. The audience continued for upwards of a quarter of -an hoar and at its conclusion the holy father bless ed me and those whom I might bless on my return. As ne left the audience chamber I felt that I had seem the pope for the last time." TURKEY VVUUNGTO SETTLE. Imperial Irade Issued Ordering- a Craiaer la the Ualted States. CONSTANTINOPLE, Nov. 30. The arrival of the United States battleship Kentucky at Smyrna has so shaken up the palace that indications are ac cumulating of a desire to hasten a settlement to the savsfactlon of the United States. An irade has been is sued calling for the purchase of a cruiser at Philadelphia, the price for which Is to include the $90,000 Arme nian indemnity. This is regarded as a subterfuge designed for local con sumption, in order to save the face of the Porte. Nevertheless it is now believed that Turkey will find the money and order a cruiser in the hope of propitiating the United States. De spite the dispute the relations between the Unitd Saes legation and the Porte continue cordial. Fatare Leeks Dark for Chlaa. LONDON, Nov. 30. "The represen tations of Prince Ching, Li Hung Chang and other to the Chinese court, that the powers are dissatisfied and are threatening action on the Yang-Tse-Kiang to stop supplies," says the Pekln correspondent of the Morning Post, wiring Tuesday, "are reported to be having an effect, and it is said that the court is likely to have measures to meet the powers. An American corre spondent reports from Pao-Ting-Fu that 3,000 Germans under General Ket tler and 2,000 French troops under General Bailloud concentrated there recently for the winter, with the inten of making frequent expeditions north to punish Boxer villages. Prince Uk tomski is in daily conference with Li Hung Chang, and occasionally meets Prince Ching. He regards the outlook as dark, even if the powers agree, for, says he, China may reject the terms, and then will come war, rebellion and famine. Three Crashed la a Bex Car. CHEYENNE, Wyo., Nov. 30. A dis astrous wreck occurred at Castle Rock, a few miles west of Evanston, on the Union Pacific yesterday. A car in a freight train loaded with steel rails jumped the track and ditched five other cars. An Ogden boy named Thomas F. Wheelwright and two un known tramps occupied the car that first jumped the track. They were sta tioned at either end and when the crash came they were pinned down by the ends of the rails and horribly in jured. Began Is Still Saspeaded. WASHINGTON, Nov. 30.

WIRE CONGER FOR TEXT Stats Department Wishes to Inow What ... Wat Agreed at Pekin. rOWEIS MAY MOMfY OR REJECT iwhlle, the American Ceasals Are CeUcctlar Damage for alisslen hy ! Diplomatic, hat hy Mere Direct Methods. WASHINGTON, Nov. 29. The state department cabled Minister Conger t forward the text of the agreement reached by the ioreign ministers at Pekln. Meanwhile he will withhold his signature until the president has had an opportunity to satisfy himself as to this important document and to make such changes as will bring it in laccord wlthjrar policy. It is safe to jircuici iuai uiis particular agreeiseui will not become effective in its pres ent shape. It appears that upon inquiry directed to the powers themselves their ministers at Pekin have not correctly reflected their present views as to the basis of the peace negotiations. This statement certainly is true as to a ma jority of the powers interested, and the fact is regarded as warranting the pre diction that the agreement must be modified or abandoned. It Is learned at the state depart ment that while these negotiations are dragging along at Pekin some of the American consuls in China are achiev ing gool results by individual efforts. They are interesting themselves in cases appealing directly to the viceroys of the great provinces, where American property and missionaries have suffer ed, to procure indemnity and repara tion, and in most cases they are suc ceeding very well. It is surmised from the latest Chinese advices that the English consuls are doing likewise, and are collecting many claims, and the moneys are being turned over to the mission Interests which suffered. If this movement continues it is entirely possible that neither the United States nor Great Britain will be obliged to concern themselves with the prosecu tion of individual claims for indemnity through the slow moving agencies at Pekln. TAKE ALL 0E RANK'S MONEY. Bobbers Bind Citizen and Allow Him te See the Job Done. EMDEN, 111., Nov. 29. Four masked men wrecked the Farmers' bank of Em den early today. It is stated that they secured all the funds of the bank, be tween $3,000 and $4,000.

One of the robbers was on guard in the street. He seized Alberts, who was bound hand and foot and dragged into the bank, where he witnessed the gang drilling into the vault door, making ready a second blast. When the fuse was lighted the robbers stepped outside and left Alberts lying in the corner when it went off. He was not seriously injured, however. The second blast un hinged the doors and the robbers made off with all the cash. Securing a hand car, they pulled in the direction of the Delavan.
