NEW TORK. Hoc. 20 Investigation of
the mute of the explosion In the Nw
York Central power house yesterday,
which resulted In ten death, the Injury
of more than 100 person and a money low
estimated at upwards of 12.000 000, was con
tinued with eeal today by city and county
Although the exast source of the disaster
haa not been determined. It may be found
that a handful of sand or the different
plnc'riK of a timber pile would havt saved
the city from the shock and tremendous
damage of the explosion. It Is generally
conceded that the first cause of the up
heaval was a runaway train of electric
cars In the Central cut near Fiftieth street
and Lexington avenue, that crashed over
a bumper against th power house, brol'e
a feed pipe and caused a large quantity
of gas to accumulate In the power house
This was detonated, possibly by an elec
tric spark from a short circuit. The mo
torman of the train. Albert Seagroett, was
unable to. stop the ears in time to avoid
their disastrous crash Into the bumper.
Investigation by Coroner Holtzhauser and
the other authorities, who are making In
dependent, inquiries, Is proceeding with a
view to dve'.ormc the circumstances of
the first hmk lh'the feed pipe, the time
which elapsed between this 'rupture and
the explosion.1 thei preventive means em

All during the night hund.-eda of laborers

The authorities believe tne number of J
deaths will not go over elevto. Ten ar
known to he dead. The officials think thai
perhaps one man may he dead in the
ruins. This man, whose name cannot be
' learned. ' has not been accounted for. and
he Is supposed, to have been working near

Charles Bills has one In his neck aa the
result of the marksmanship of Editor

Kdltor Treadwell Is In Jail at Cando. The

from him the return of the whisky.
Igglna denied taking the liquor. Tread

to art as peacemaker. Treadwell then fired
at Pig-gins, but hit Bills. The second
bullet lodged in Dlgglns' lung. It is thought
both men will recover.
OMAHA MEN REACH CAPITAL
(Continued from First Fage.) ,
aa strongly as they know how to President
How President Ferls.
.Senator Brown, who has had a number
of talks with the president regarding
Judicial places to be filled, said today that
I ho president was looking for fitness
primarily and that he desired to promote
Judges who had distinguished themselves
by their decision, by their broadness of
culture and by their Judicial attainment
to higher places, which accounted most
largely for the promotion of Judge' Van
Devanter and others of clroult or district
benches. Where' the president could not
find a judge who measured up to the re
quirements that he laid down he would
seek In a distinguished lawyer those qual
ifications that would make for an up
right and Impartial Judge, the appointment
of Mr. Justice Hughes being an example
Of Mr. Iearned. Senator Brown spoke
In most enthusiastic terms. Hs said he
had all the requisites of a great jurist
and that In event Judge Calkins would
not be considered In connection with the
Van Devanter vacancy, he would pull
i rung for Myron Learned, because hs re
garded him as one of the very best
equipped men In the whole commonwealth
f Nebraska for such an office.
The Iowa delegation are split up, which
Is not In any wise presented as new and
startling news, Into two samps, Individual
members of the delegation urging upon
the president the appointment, of Judges
Deemer and MacLean for the vacancy on
the circuit bench.
To add to the embarrassment of the sit
uation growing out of the vacancy In the
Klghth circuit. Judge Frank R, Aitkin of
Sioux Falls, B. IX, who Is a candidate to
succeed Judge Van Devanter, Is In Wash
ington for the purpose of furthering his
own candidacy, and this Is only the begin
ning of what the president will be up
against In the next few weeks, for It Is
understood that nothing will be done to fill
the vacancy until alter congress is again
In session on Capitol HUI.

Long and Hard Fall.
MASON CITV. Ia.. Dec. 20.-(Speclal-A
good deal of Interest Is manifested over
the injury to Oscar Myhre. which occurred
on Saturday. He was riding his motor
cycle In the vicinity of Fertile, and as
nearly as can be learned, was going at a
slxty-mllo-an-hour clip, when he struck the
culvert. By actual measurement from the
point where he left the bicycle to the place
he struck, It was sixty-four feet. While
he has 'been unconscious for hours, his
mind Is slowly clearing up and chances for
his recovery are more favorable. Now the
contention Is made that It was the distance
he was thrown that really saved his life.
Had he Immediately struck the ground
when he left the wheel, It is stated that
he was going with enough force to have
broken every bone in his body, and the
distance he traveled In the air reduced the

FORT DO DOE. Deo. 20. (Special.) New
excitement In the saloon fight here Is
aroused today In a dispute over the length
of time that Is given for securing with
drawals. Borne contend this privilege' Is
extended only ten days after the petition
Is filled and others maintain withdrawals
can be made until the board of supervisors
canvasses the petition. Mr. Wright of the
Anti-Saloon league, holds a supreme court
decision gives only ten days from the time
of filing. The mulct law has no stipulation
concerning this matter, Ic Is asserted.
If only ten days are allowed, the Civic
league has only four more days for ac

of the anti-saloon cause. On the other
hand, If they can work until the petition
Is psssed upon, they have until January 14,

day for the canvass. The question is being
