ThoBcuno of thu terrible disaster Is being
visited by thousands who block Single
street , making it a dlfllcult task to move any
where. A largo force of men are engaged In
the , work of searching the ruins , but the
work Is not under any head , nnd consequently
quently not much headway is made. The
shipping oflleo of the dominion government
building has bcon turned Into a temporary
morgue and over twenty bodies arc lying in
it. It is diftlcult to identify 'some bodies.
BO much have they bcon disfigured
and crushed. Several persons reported
missing have turned up , but it Is thought
there will bo ten or more victims to be added
to the list.
The city council is now holding n special
meeting to consider the best course of action
to complete the work of recovering the re
maining bodir-s. It is feared a largo part of
the rock adjoining the site of the slide will
como down , as largo crevices Imvo appeared

The site of the landslide of last night is
almost identical with that of one which oc
curred In ISll , when eight buildings were
crushed and thirty , two persons killed. The
houses destroyed last night all stood on the
other side of the road nnd wcra not thought
to bo in danger , but the mass of rock swept
clear across the roadway and over the brick
buildings , demolishing them. Uoughly
speaking , the mass of earth and rocks which
moved last night had a frontage of 000 feet
by eighty feet in depth. Some of the pieces
of fallen rock must weigh nearly twenty
tons , nnd there are so many huso blocks that
It makes the work of clearing very difficult.
The working parties this afternoon aru
better organized and are making moro head
way. In addition to the list of killed given ,
the bodies of Richard Leahy , Airs. Heady and
Miss Lane have 'been recovered from the
Preparations are being made for the fu

Among those burled by the rocks are n
young couple named Nolan , who wcro mar
ried u few weeks ago. Nolan could have es
caped , but ho lost his llfo trying to got his
wife out of the house.
It Is thought that King's bastion on thu
citadel will havoto bo removed , as it is now
near the edge of the rock with unsafe crovj
ices In front of It. As a precautionary moan-
ure all communication with the bastion has
been cut oft and tlio morning nnd evening
guns will bo no .longer fired from It ,
About 00,000 persons have visited the sccno
of the disaster during the day. Thousands
crowded into thu morgue and seized on every
point insldo and outsldo of the building
where a glimpse could bo had of the bodies
of the victims. Many women who obtained
nn on trance had to bo removed in a fainting
condition , the mangled bodies being a sight
to try the nerves of the strongest men.
It has been decided to USD small charges of
powder to break up the hugo boulders cover-
hit ; tha.roadway , as It is certain there can bo
nothing living beneath them.
While the workers wcro busy cleaning
away the debris of the crumbled buildings ,
faint groans weru heard at intervals from
under the hugo piles of rocks. Thooffoits
of the volunteers wcro concentrated to that
point , and after thrco hours' work the bleed
ing body ot Joe Kcniu was extricated from
tlm mass of rock. The man Is in a most
iilllablo condition. Hoth of bis legs are
broken ut thu knees , his loft urm fractured
nbnvo the elbow and several rib * fractured.
Ho cannot live many hours. Two hours
later his wife's body was taken
out of the wreck. Her head was almost
severed from her body. Farther away an
other hideous spectacle wan offered to the
night by the corpse of a young woman ( Mis ,
Lauton ) , who hud been admired in lifo for
her beauty , Her body hud boon crushed
almost Hat. Her abdomen had bcon ripped

notion is being taken by these employed
in the cotton industry to defeat the Liver
pool corner which has succeeded In buying
up the great bulk of the Cotton which will bo
on the market at the end of September , as
the now crop in any quantity will not bo
hero until the middle of October. The cor-
ncrcr , who is a Dutch Jew , will have thn
market to himself for three weeks , and if his
move is successful ho will bo able to run
prices to his own figures. Both employers
and employes have agreed on joint action in
order to defeat the rinc. Two-thirds of the
mill owners have , decided to run on short
time and the remaining third will bo unable
to work at nil , as the operatives of the union
will call out the spinners nt all mills where
short tlmo is not run. This will enable the
masters to make their present stock last out
until the now cotton comes into the market ,
and so leave the cornercr with the whole
purchase on his hands.

CHICAGO , Sept. 20. The Journal this af
ternoon prints n story to the effect that the
bloody cotton which was found In the Carl
son cottage basement was put there by two
reporters of that paper who had been sent
there when it first became rumored that
Crouin had been murdered in the house.
Fearing the rumors might not materialize
sufficiently to furnish a good , ghastly story.
the reporters obtained cotton batting and
smeared it with beef blood and put it in the
basement. This was found by the police
nnd is held as part of the evidence against
the prisoners. It is also said the defense has
snmuof it ; that they have had it analyzed ,
the analysis showing it to bo beet blood , nnd
that they are calculating to spring the fact
on the prosecution as u surprise.
The work of getting a jury In the Cronlu

Nothing of Interest developed and no addi

CHICAGO. Sept. 3J. [ Special Telegram to
THE BEE. ] Mrs. tVunlo L. Helfonstoin be
gan suit for S10.000 damages m the superior
court to-duy against' Ifonry Alioth , of the
Now York jewelry ilrni of Ubry & Alioth.
The charge against Mr. Alioth Is assault.
The complainant is the wife of Charles B.
Helfenstein , a traveling salesman.
Since last May ho has buon employed by
Uhry & Alioth , manufacturing jewelers of
Now York City. For some reason the Urm
suspected his honesty and a few days ago
Henry Alioth , the junior partner , came to
Chicago to look after a quantity of stock
valued at several thousand dollars that
had been shipped to Helfenstoin. The latter
was not ut homo when Alioth llrst called nt
his residence , 050 Washington boulevard ,
but last Wednesday ho returned to the city
and at once went to the Palmer house to
look up the eastern jeweler. Ho found there
a card from Mr. Alioth asking hlui to wait
until he got back to the hotel. In the mean
time Alioth , accompanied by several men
said to bo Pinkerton detectives , armed with
a search warrant , had gone to Hclfetistoin's
residence and ransacked it from top to bottom
tom for the Jewelry. Mrs. Ilolfenstein took
hold of Alioth's arm ana ordered him out of
the house , but instead of obeying , she claims
that he struck her nod pointed n revolver
at her head. She also says that ho brought
a couple of women to the house nnd she was
compelled to submit to the indignity of a ,
personal search. Tbo Jewelry was not
found und Mr. Alioth and his mon had to
leave etnpty-handnd. Mr. Helfonstoin , who
says that the whole trouble uroso through a
mistake , returned tlio jewelry yesterday
morning , and his wife to-day brought suit
against Alioth for $10,000 , damages for as

A Onllunto AdJtiHtiuont ,
Ciucino , Sept , 20. [ Special Telegram to
Tin ; Hiiu.j The long existing friction bo-
twcon Hues east and west bound from Chicago
cage nnd St. Louis broke out In two places
to-day. As Illustrative of the hair-spring ;
adjustment of rates among tlio Hues tha fol
lowing decision made to-day by Chairman
Walker , of tlio Inter-state Commerce KalU
way association , Is extremely interesting : )
"At a meeliug of the Western Freight as
sociation on July 11 , ttiij question of n read
justment of the existing differential upon
shipments of salt from Chicago und St.
Louis to _ , Missouri river points
and beyond was considered , und
was referred to the managers of the Inter
state Commerce Railway association. At a
meeting of the malingers on July 15 the sub
ject was ducusscd and a dilTorcnce of opin
ion was developed which resulted Iu a disa
greement , aud the mutter was referred to \ ' < $
Chairman Walker with instructions to Inves
tigate , and with full power to aay what the
difference shall bo In the rates between the
two points. A notlco of hearing was issued
for July 30 , at which time several of the
lines were present and presented their
claim ! ) . Absent lines wcro requested to
make statements in writing. After nil
the parties interested had been hoard from ,
considerable difference was found in tha
statements respecting matters of fact , nnd ,
by circular dated August 19 , precise information -
mation was requested upon various subjects
that appeared to bo involved in the consid
eration of the questions raised , Hesmmscs
have been received from the various lines
and the subject 1ms been carefully consid
ered iu thu light of all facts ascertained and
arguments presented. The situation In brlof
is this : '
"Tho price of salt at the Saginaw district
is established by an association of producers
and is now S3 cents per barrel. At points
west the prleo thereloro Is 5'J cents plus the
freight. Since July hist the rates from Sag
inaw have been 20 cents to Chicago und 1)0 )
cents to St. Louis , making tlio price of salt
to Chicago 72 cents and nt St. Louis 82 cents.
The rates from St. Louis to the Missouri
river nro 39 cents from Chicago nnd 31 cents
from St. Louis , malting the price at Missouri
river points 31.11 via Chicago nnd 51.00 via
St. Louis. In the past tno rates have been
so adjusted that thu price has been the same A
upon salt via both gateways. Tlio diiToron- 3
tials upon salt aud hard coal have J"
been treated as variable and subject
to readjustment from time to time for the
purpose of equalization. Ilio present in
equality arose from a reduction made by the
lines between Saginaw and St. Louis , the
ostensible reason for which was in order to
bring about the same rate differences at St.
Louis and Chicago in rospout to Michigan
salt that had existed for some tirao in respect
to New York salt , the rate on which is 30
cents to Chicago and 40 cents to St. Louis ,
or u differoncn. of 10 cents , to which the
present rates of 20 and 30cents , rates rospoct-
full.v from the Saginaw district , correspond.
The present west bound differential
of Ifi cents between Chicago and St. Louis
applied to tbo urico of Saglnuw nt tlioso
elites produces the result that has bcon de
scribed. St. Louis agents selling Michigan
salt are offering it at western points ut a
price of 5 cents less than Chicago agents
make on the snmo article. For cxnrnplo it
is shown that salt is offered for sale at
Papillion , Nob. , via St. Lov Is , nt SI. 12 , and
via Chicago at $1,17. Similar proof is made
In respect to other points in Nebraska ,
Kansas , Iowa and northern Missouri. It is
obvious that the price nt the point of delivery
would bo equalized by a reduction of the ex
isting differential from 15 cents to 10 cents.
"After u full examination of the subject in
the light of all the reasons adduced by the
St. Louis lines , I am unable to perceive nny
good reason why this should not bo dono.
The territory in Missouri and Kansas to
which a natural route lies through St. Louis
has of Into bcou largely supplied by salt
from the Hutchlnson district. This faot
explains in n great measured the small ship
ments now being made from St. Louis to
Hucli points ; the St. Louis lines"desire to in
crease still further the extent of territory In
which the Hutchlnson salt can bo sold , and
proceedings are now potid ng to that end.
An advance In the rate from St. Louis west
bound will bo u stop iu the direction desired
It is , therefore , awarded that the differ
ential in question should be reduced 5 cents ,
or from 15 cents to 10 cents. This should bo
effected by an advunoo of 5 cents in the ex
isting rntu from St. Louis to tlio
points in question , corresponding to the re
duction which was recently made In thu rates
to St. Louis upon the lines east of the
Mississippi river. "
The ether instance where friction caused
sparks and which , according to Chicago
cage railroad officials mutt bo Immediately
adjusted or it will causa a disturbance cn >
tlruly out of proportion to the original cause ,
was the recent quoting of n 29 cent rate in
stead of a 35 cent rate by the St. Louis com- < *
uuttc , in other words , nn ignoring of 'v |
the fundamental basis of making rates
in central traffic territory on the
percentage prinrlplo. The Chicago .
committee took hold of the matter to-dny It
and passed the following resolutions : '
Resolved , That the tunff dated August 27 ,
and taking effect September 10 , on rags and
paper stock Issued by 13. W. Braisted , chair
man of the St. Louis committee , by which
thu classification of thu articles named is re

proper committee , therefore bo it , , J
Resolved , That the tariff be referred to
Chairman Blanchard with a request that the
matter bo investigated promptly and
this committee bo informed why such
action of the St. Louis committee bo
permitted when in direct violation of all
rules und regulations of both the Central
Trafllo und Trunk Lines associations , and ,
Resolved , That pending this Investigation
and while awaiting information on this sub
ject the Chicago commllloo take no action
