"Commissioner Ryder did not want this

Recently the police department has been
criticised for nonenforcement of the law.
A killing In a resort last Thursday night
tended to intensify this criticism.
Commissioner Kugel said he recognized
that anybody would have trouble with
the police department because "It is a
question whether or not the people of
tho city want a closed town."
"I understand it has been possible to
buy beer after hours," Kugel continued.
"No great harm, I judge, has been' done
If beer has beon sold after hours.
It has bee,n an accommodation to the

When Commissioner Ryder was criti

fourth of tho available capital In the
country. New York demands a com
manding representation and that will
leave about one-fourth of tho country' for
the other six bank's. What do you say
Mr. Forgan said that his Ideas were
subject to revision, especially as few
bankers doubted that the Twin Cities
would have a bank.

"During th night of January 14, a
loud explosion was heard, followed by n
flash of flame and a cloud of ashes, rising
many thousand feot
"Beneath the cloud of nmoko and ashes,
broad streams of lava could bo plainly
seen flowing down tho slopes to tho sea.
The fprest on tho mountain side quickly
caught fire and the flames, spread to
the houses of the numerous llttlo villages
"The. entire western coast lino of Sakura
seemed to be ablaze and a strong wind
carried smoke, gas and hot ashes stralgnt
to the mainland.

crowds, many of them ascending tho steep
sides of Shlroyama mountain and look

shocks were becoming loss violent and
soon subsided all together for a time. The
town of Kakoshlnm was filled with mal
odorous gases, howevor.
"I made a visit the following morn

but It was Impossible to reach the shore
in the small native boat, owing to the
great floating .fields of pumice stone.
"The occupants of the boat could, how

shore, with their rice fields and gardens,
had . been levelled by the molten lava,
while the surrounding forests had been
