MANY DEATHS IN GRAVE. STARTLING STATEMENT OF THE EXTENT OF PREMATURE BURIAL. New York Physician Declares That One of Every Two Mundred People Put trader the Ground Is Really Alive trate That Existing Methods Should Be ReformedRussian's Device for a Cemetery Alarm System ' General NC WS of a Gotham Day,, NEW YORK BUREAU CHICAGO TRIBUNE. t New York. Dec. 19. Members of the Academy of Medicine were startled tonight by an uncanny declaration made by Dr. Henry J. Says One in Garrigues. " Those Two Hundred Is who have made a spe- cial study of the clues- Burled Alive. tion assert that out of every 200 coffins put under ground In this country the occupant of at least one of them is simply in a lethargice state and is buried alive," he said. The academy met to discuss the subject of premature burial and to witness the workings of a graveyard life-saving apparatus's recently Invented by Count Michael de Karnice Earnicki. Chamberlain to the Emperor of Russia. As a prelude to the discussion and general demonstration. Dr. Garrigues read a paper dealing with persons who are buried alive. Ho further asserted that decomposition of the vital parts is the only irrefutable and reliable sign of death. He continued: " Our legislation concerning burial is all in favor of the survivors, and not a thought Is given to the possibility of apparent death. It is left to laymen who happen to be present when a person ceases to breathe to declare him dead. " As a matter of fact, many physicians do not even glance at the bodies of their patients. but sign the certificates of death on the report of friends or strangers present at the supposed death. It should be made a crime to do anything to the supposed dead that would cause injury or pain to a living person before the certificate is signed." The life-saving apparatus is composed of a tube four inches in diameter, resting on the t coffin, and connected at the other end to a triangular metallic box containing signals. The metallic box alone is visible above the grave, the other parts are buried in the ground. A metal rod passes through the axis of this tube into the coffin and is placed in communication with the signals of the metallic box at its upper end. Should a movement of the burled body take place it would displace the ball, and a general and simultaneous action takes place, , the box is opened, and the signals. bell, flag. and shining ball ere placed in movement or are displayed.

The first legal battle of the day came when the defense sought to have the handwriting of Felix J.

President Sontag ' Sava the Ofilchill Was Discharged and Given One Hour to MovePoliceman Called to Insure ComplianceFormer Caton League Superintendent Declare Trouble & Mere Quarrel (3-er BustnesaStill Claims Position., Albert E. Glennie. former superintendent of the Union League club. was discharged as manager of the Grand Pacific Hotel yesterday. According to President Fritz Son MARQUIS OF QUEENSBERRY CRITICALLY ILL The Marquis was found unconscious in bed on Monday. He is in his 55th year. tag of the hotel company he was given one hour to move or be ejected and his effects thrown Into the street after him. A big policeman was called in to give a tinge of earnestness to the order. Mr. Glennie departed, but returned later and occupied his quarters as usual last night. President Sontag said of the reason for Mr. Glennie's dismissal: " Mr. Glennie was peremptorily discharged from his position under circumstances which were such that he was not giving the best attention to the affairs of the establishment." Mr. Glennie said the reason for the trouble was that too many people were trying to run the hotel and that the resulting friction led him to propose that they either let him run the house or purchase his stock. The crisis came before a money adjustment was reached. He declared that he had not resigned. A week ago Manager Glennie employed a number of private detectives to guard the office. When President Sontag appeared he was not admitted. He at once sought the services of rival private detectives. with the result that Mr. Glennie and his detectives as well were locked out of the hotel office. When the bill for the services of Mr. Glennie's cohorts was presented payment was refused. - , Sontag Says " Put Out." Last night President Sontag moved from his house, 46 Wisconsin street, to the hotel and assumed active management. Discussing the trouble with Mr. Glennie. President Sontag said: " I decided after a consultation with the other directors of the hotel to discharge Mr. Glennie. I informed him to this effect some two weeks ago. But he refused to leave and doubted my authority in the matter. He telegraphed to Adolphus Busch in St. Louis asking him to interfere. Now. I am the representative of Mr. Busch in Chicago not only in his brewing interests but also in the hotel. Therefore Mr. Busch refused to interfere, but left the entire matter in the hands of the Board of Directors and myself. " I called a special meeting ot the directors for tOday. when additional charges were made against Mr. Glennie for laxity in running the affairs of the hotel. It was clearly seen that it was for the best interests of our establishment that our manager should be ousted and a new one placed in his stead, and when a vote was taken there was not even a shadow of opposition. Mr. Glennie was called in and I informed him of our action. Furthermore, I said that it was final, and that no more delay would be tolerated in the matter. " Mr. Glennie had absolutely no connection with the financial affairs of the hotel. These are entirely looked after by our treasurer, General Fitz-Simons." Glennie Gives His Version. Glennie said the affair had been much magnified, that It was only a little quarrel, and that he had not retired from the management of the hotel. " There has been some friction for some time," he said. " It has seemed to me that there have been too many people trying to run the hotel. and matters came to a crisis today when I said that I proposed either to run the house or let them purchase my stock and get out. There has been no settlement reached as yet, and I ant not prepared tonight to give out a full statement. It has simply been a quarrel occasioned by -the reasons I have indicated. I have not resigned or retired as yet, and am not prepared to say what I shall do until I have consulted my attorney."

Deal Int Michigan Military Seipp Mei to Result la Several Changeo ift Public ServiceAlleged Preperatione for a Counter-Mova Against Court aad Grand Jury at Lansing Thought to Be Upset by Guard Scandal.. - - Lansing. Mich., Dec. 19.-4 Special.1Governor Pingree tonight asked for the resignation of Brigadier General William L. White of Grand Rapids, Quartermaster General; Brigadier General Fred IL Case of Three Rivers, Adjutant General; Brigadier General Arthur F. Marsh of Allegan, Inspector General; and Samuel IL Bickerhoff, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Michigan Asylum for Insane at Kalamazoo. Who is city salesman for the Henderson-Ames company of that city. The Governor's action is due to thily deal in military supplies which the grand jury has disclosed. The charge is that the board sold $153,000 worth of military stores to the Illinois Supply company for ;10,500, and then bought the goods back for ;00,000 through the Henderson-Ames company. The Governor will send a message to the Legislature asking for the adoption of a .joint resolution instructing the Attorney General to begin suit against the Henderson-Ames company and General White's bondsmen for the recovery of the money lost to the State through the deal made by the Military board with the Henderson-Ames company. The letters sent to the three members of Michigan's Military board are equivalent to removal from office. If their resignation are not received the Governor can remove them. In his letters calling for the resignations Governor Pingree says: " The recent disclosures in connection With the dealings between the State Military board and the Henderson-Ames company and the Illinois Supply company plainly indicate that such dealings have resulted in the loss to the State of about $40,000. It would appear that the loss was the result either of collusion on your part with the Henderson-Ames company or your failure to have exercised reasonable diligence in the matter to protect the interests intrusted to your care. " I cannot believe that you were in collusion with those parties to defraud the State, and I am, therefore, forced to the conclusion that lack of the exercise of proper diligence or judgment on your part has caused or contributed to this result. In either view, my duty seems plain. The public have a right to feel that their servants are both honest and competent, and it seems clear that in view of the developments referred to the public cannot longer have confidence in the capacity of the Military board to protect their interests. Under all the circumstances I have determined to direct that immediate and vigorous steps be taken to recover the money the State has thus lost. and to ask you to tender your resignation, to take effect immediately." The developments in the State's military affairs have wrecked the Governor's legislative program, which, it is said, was in reality an attack on Judge Person and the grand jury. Judge Person's term of office expires on Jan. 1 next and an investigation of his official work would practically suspend him at once. It is said the Governor intended to have the affairs of the court and the grand jury investigated on the claim that they were governed by improper motives in returning the Indictments against members of the Legislature. 0 NEW METHOD OF TAX VALUATION Ohio Supreme Court Hands Down Decision Directly Affecting the Bell Telephone Corapany CANADIANS READ THEIR WORKS.

Boston, Mass., Dec. 19.-1SpecialAThe Rev. Charles E. Davis of the First Church of Lynn. Mass., speaking before the Methodist Social union. spoke emphatically against the discipline of the Methodist Church against attending the theater, card playing, and dancing. " I do not defend the theater." he said. " I do not hope ever to play cards, but I do not like to have the church to which I give my life belittle itself by. pointing out the things people shall do and the things they shall not do. Let us declare for principles; let us declare against impurity and not dodge that great principle. but let us not bide behind the theater and dancing. " Let us try to get votes enough at the next general conference to wipe out this blunder that got into the discipline of the church twenty-eight years ago. For twenty-eight years we have tried it and it is a dead issue. It is keeping good Christian young people out of the Methodist Church who ought to be in it." SONS OF COLONISTS MEET. Dr. Z.
