COUNTRY' FIRE. a Goorgr Tnliin Home Northeast, of I Tipton Is Destroyed. • Columbus* O., April 24.—Sensational cliarges that prison officials -could have saved all the 30S prisoners who died in i'the Ohio penitentiary fire Monday night- and an admission from Warden Preston K. Thomas that no general fire precautions are taken at the institution were read into the record of the board of •inquiry today. . Charges that prison officials were lax in their consideration of the value of human life were made] by A. K. Nice. Columbus fire chief. The warden blamed the state for overcrowding the prison for almost twice its capacity. Chief Xice declared that all the victims could ljave been ^av- ed if : they had been released from i their cells as soon as the fire had been discovered. He told the board that there must have j been undue delay because the first adarm came from a box- outside prison walls. Warden Thomas, recalled to the witness stand after Nice finished his testimony, was questioned hi detail as to what precautions were taken' against fire and why he went outside the prison walls to prevent any escapes when a: serious situation prevailed inside. | He replied that he did not-provide general fire protection, at the prison because Columbus fire companies can reach there in two.minutes and that he did not go to the scene of the fire because' he had given orders and expected them to be carried out.

Washington, April 24.—Investigation by the Senate lobby committee of activities of the Association Against the .Prohibition Amendment yesterday produced charge by Senator Arthur R. Robinson (Republican, Indiana) that the organization had "lobbied 'directly with the United States Supreme court." The charge resulted from the reading o'f two letters written last year by Thomas W.. Phillips of Pennsylvania, a director of .the association, to Justice Harlan P.' Stone of the Supreme court and a third to the late Justice Sanford. The letters consisted largely of an attack on prohibition. They were read before the committee while it was questioning Henry H. Curran, president of the. antiprohibition organization, for the fifth day in.regard to its activities in behalf of repeal of the dry laws. ; Curran said he approved the letters. - "It is the most: amazing thing I ever heard of,'.' Robinson re- troted. You are lobbying directly with the Untied. States Supremf court', apparently to influence that great court on its decisions. I have never- heard of such things in a- good many years of the practice of law/' : Phillips is running for Gover nor of Pennsylvania and Is supported by the Association Against the • Phrobition Amendment. Informed at his home at Butler, Pa., that the letters had been read, Phillips described them as {"personal letters—-to acquaintances" <and said there was'no in tent to "lobby.". He added that the association had' absolutely nothing to do with it." and that as "public enemies" they are to be 1 treated as such. Ths writer 0 fj 0e ^ ral s jj 'ff, nt ; the letter, Frank J.
