Today flames from the fire in the second iein, 310 feet below the surface, bad swept fifty feet up the main ebaft. Then the fire was forced back. Mine Manager Taylor declared that the destruction of the main shaft Is at all times imminent, and with it the only possibility of removing bodies. . That no men survive in the mine now is gen-e rally conceded even by the most optimistic of the Cherry miners.

Practically all: of the todies 6f inese that perished in the ' disaster, were, found- this niornihg on a staircase at the mouth of the third or lower level. One hundred and slxty-. eight bodies were discovered, leaving a little more than a score to be accounted (or.

The bodies were in a great tangled ! i mass, : completely DiocKing- .tne- rtairtase S leading from the third to the second vein, and were scattered along the vein hre4Jey had dropped before reaching the stairway. Black damp was the cause of death, all means of escape having been blocked by debris falling and covering the' top of the staircase. The men had died as they tried to push through the obstructions or in waiting vainly for rescuers. Death evidently did not come to many for hours if not days'. Dlaaer Falls C'oaialaed Food. ' Two rude wooden ventilating Vans, fashioned after the same manner as those found two days ago with the dead in the second gallery, were affixed to the shaft wall anil stairway. The men. bad turned these by hand in their frantic struggle for air and in the hopeless effort to brush back the slowly covering black' damp. The hands of one of the dead miners were found grimly gripped about the fan as he had died. The fans were made of pieces of wood hastily nailed together and whirled about with the handles of the miners' picks. The dinner pa lis of scores of the men were found in the mass. Many of them were partly tilled, showing that the men did not suffer from hunger and that death must have come shortly after their escape from the depths of the. level. One of the bodies waa badly burned. - Messages scrawled on wood and the natural late cropping from the walls placed the number of dead at 1(0 or 168. One message read: ' - ' "We are all here to die together." This is accepted by-mine officials as indicating that many men whose escape from the second vein Tako Off fho Fat Vhcro li Shows Most women suffer much humiliation- because of great quantities of fat, so located that, no matter how they dress, everybody Bees that they are abnormal. This Is the day of -the slender figure, and fat women are simply not tolerated, either In business or social affairs. Women may oot know It. but men, when they see g fat woman pass them ' on the street or in public places, make all manner or sympathetic remarks about her. They do not mean to he unkind or to seem unmanly, but it Is natural for a, man to dislike fat on a woman. Where fat shows the most there Is where U must be removed, and as quickly as possible. This season's dresses seem to be made for the fat woman's misery ; and the slender woman's delight. They expose all the charms of woman and her ugliness as well. Exercise and diet will not remove fat. This has been proved.

Fire Inspector William McDonnell, accompanied by his driver, John La Salle, departed last night for the grief-stricken town to assume charge of Chicago firemen at work there. . Fire Marshal James Horan. who feels personally responsible for the firemen, and who sent them there for humanity's sake, has been uneasy over-their safety, and from his sick bed directed the departure of the fire inspector. Additional apparatus was also sent to Cherry. Many distressing stories were related by firemen who returned yesterday, after fighting the flames for six day. The sudden reversing of the fan In the air shaft, several said, nearly resulted in three members being suffocated. - The blistered, peeling cheeks and hands bespoke the heroic efforts, made by the fire lighters to extinguish the flames in the levels.-- - ;...- Chief Horan was at the mine on the first day of the fire, and when official! of the Chicago.

DEPUTIES III MEETING CALL STATE TROOPS Sheriff of Lawrence . County, Indiana, Asks for Militia When Men Fail Him in Bedford Stone Cutters' Strike. ...... Special Dispatch to Tbs Inter Ocean. BEDFORD. Ind.. Nor. 24. The dispute between the General Union Stone Cotters oa one hand and the National Society of Cutters and Stone Mill Operators on-the other reached such an acute stage this morning that Sheriff Thomas W. Box of Lawrence county asked Governor Marshall to send state militia here to assist in preserving the peace. Frequent clashes between the General Union men and their opponents have resulted and tbe sheriff feared he would be unable to swear tu enough deputies to maintain order. Several more mills were forced to close, the employes going out In sympathy with the General Union cutters. Between 1,000 and 1.500 men are now Idle, and the General Union men predict that all the quarry men In the district, about five thousand, will strike In sympathy. Strikers Parade Slreeta. . . - The situation was intensified yesterday 'afternoon whaa several hundred - strikers paraded tbe streets. The police and sfaerilf. fearing trouble, obtained re-enforcements. Lut nothing serious developed, though the cry or "scab" was heard frequently. It Is the anger engendered by the cry of "scab" that makes the situation menacing. , The trouble between - the General Union cutters and the operators is due to posters placed in all the mill working General Union eutters that after a certain date the operators would employ only national society cutters. This caused the first walkout a few weeks ago and It has been followed by other-walk-outs Id sympathy, until cow there are estimated to be 1.500 men Idle. The General Union cutters, in- a public statement mad; to the citizens by their president., "Joe Evans, declared the' trouble was not the fault ot the General Union cutters, but that it was because the cut stone contractors would not meet them In an effort to remedy their grievances and that they der sired to work national cutters in preference to General Union because they controlled that society, their arbitration beard, he declared, consisting otaix cut stone contractors and five stone cutters. - 'V ' Raya Ceatraeten Cestrel t alow. - . This situation, he said, gave the cut stone contractors the power at any time to do just as tbey chose, regulating wages, employing help, etc., and working "scabs" as they de-slre. - - .-.:-- - . " r The statement made by President Evans of the Journeymen .Stone Cutters' Association of North America follows: - "There Is but one question Involved In tbe so-called stonecutters' stcike In Bedford, and that Is the fight of the stonecutters for an organization of their own," Governor Marshall ordered General Perry to Bedford, with Instructions to order oat the Bloomington company of mlUtla If he thought necessary. The Governor also notified Sheriff Box that unleoa the civil anthortlles-keep order he will supplant them with militia authorities. Pablle Sympathise With Strikers. ' Sheriff Box reported that he could find only seven men in Bedford on whom he could depend as deputies, owing to the great number of strike sympathisers, and asked that a com-nanv of militia should be sent at once. .-. - He was told by the Governor to send to the country for men and to press them Into service ff the 'men of Bedford would not resnond.

Hesatd: "I am quite disassociated from any party and speak from my sense of the awful gravity .-f tbe situation. This Is tbe greatest pollt- ' leal moment ia the lifetime of any man born since 1832.- r , ' Lord Rosebery admitted that by tbe letter f tbe law the House of Lords was competent , to reject finauce bills, but since 1832. to which ; time the Lords bad practical control of the House of Commons, it waa not possible that Ute Commons should send up a budget which the House of Lords should go to the length of rejecting. He considered that tbe only possible cir cumstances justifying the Lords, in exertU-. ing such a dormant power would betbedi-j it-ct authority and condonation of tbe natloj lit elf. Such a circumstance might arise It a . budget were presented which lowered tbe defenses of the country to a point which the nation considered dangerous.

"Disregard for that maxim." be said, -lout as the United States of America, and we are oot likely to offend against It again." - Lord Rosebery contended that the budget taxed tbe Lords freely and abundantly without their having a word to say or a vote in the matter. After referring to tbe budget as having spread ever tbe country like a fog want of confidence and want of credit, the worst diseases which could affect commercial nstions. he uttered a rolemn warning thst tbe pressure of greet armaments was eating out the beart and hurrying Europe toward bankruptcy. Expressing regret that he could not support the resolution. Lord Rosebery resumed bis teat, having, spoken, for fifty minutes His picturesque and glowing eloquence produced a tremendous effect, leaving his hearers somewbat bewildered. There was an Immediate exodus ot peers to discus the situation In tbe loobies, and. although the debate continued until midnight, the remainder or the speeches took rather the form of an anticlimax. ..-.' . -Lord Milcer spoke ot the abnormal manner in which tbe budget was driving capital out ot the country. He declared that all tbe proposed new taxes were bad and unnecessary. All the money required, be contended, might have been raised by Import duties, not only without Injury to business and employment, but with actual benefit to both.. Lord Curzoa will resume tbe debate tomorrow. It Is impossible tonight to judge the effect Rosebery 's warning will have. ; Roaekery Swaya tae Peera. It is known already - that a considerable section of tbe Unionist peers have held grave doubts as -to the expediency ot Lord Lansdowne's course, and there is almost certain to be a large number ot abstentions when the resolution comes to a rote. - Tbe prolongation of tbe debate . lit the House of Lords Into next week is due to the fact that there Is no machinery to bring a discussion in this chamber to a close, all tbe peers expressing a desire to speak having full right to do so. It was announced tonight that the House of Commons will adjourn tomorrow until Dec. 1. when Mr. Asqulth, the -Prime Minister, will make an important statement explaining the policy ot the government In view of tbe rejection of tbe budget, which Is anticipated. Nothing has been learned as to what the Ministers decided at today's council beyond the decision to call a party meeting.
