MONTREAL, Jan. 10. - Seventy-
seven victims of the fire and stampede
in the Laurier Palace moving picture
theatre yesterday, most of them
children, are awaiting burial. All the
dead have been identified and of the
30 injured the majority have recov-
Bred sufFiciently to be removed to
their homes.
A general mass will be sung in the
Church of the Nativity, Hochelaga, to-
morrow morning, by Mons. le Pailleur,
Dr. Within the church the bodies of
many of the children repose. They
are of the poorer classes of the city,
and the celebration of a general mass
will save their parents the expense of
a funeral-service.
An inquest began by Coroner Mc-
Mahon was postponed until Thurs-
day after two witnesses had given
their testimony. The fire, court will
hear the case tomorrow. The proprie-
tor of the theatre, Amen Lawand, and
three of his employees, are under bail
pending the investigation.

Special Miessage To C'ongress Takies
Stand Oni Central Anmerican (Crisis;
L ays Bare Facts
(By Associated Press)t
WASHINGTOsN4, Jan. 10.-In a spe-
cial message to Congress today,
President Coolidge minced no words in
telling where he stands on the Nica-
raguan crisis.
Laying bare the facts which underly
the government's policy, the Presi-
dent told House and Senate that he
was acting not only to preserve
American life and policy, but to pro-
tect the interests of "this govern-j
ment itself," whether assailed by in-
ternal strife of "outside interferences."
And he made it plain that the gov-
ernment is convinced the "outside in-
terference" comes from Mexico.
The President detailed how the
Sacasa faction, seeking to upset the
Diaz government, which has beenf
recognized and supported by the
United States, has been armed withj
munitions from Mexico, some of
which bear evidence of having come
from the Mexican government itself.
Throughout his message, which was
sent to the Capitol by messenger and
read by clerks in both houses, the
President emphasized the inclusive-
ness of his policy to protect "all"
American interests. Americans, with
their lives and property; the rights
of the United States government in its
treaties providing for a Nicaraguan
canal route; the rights of a naval base
in the bay of Fonseca, and the stabil-
ity of Central America all are includ-
Taking direct issue with Chairman
Borah of the Senate foreign relations
committee, who contends the Sacasa
group is a legitimate constitutional
government of Nicaragua, if there Ibe
any, the President detailed the event,
which led to direct recognition of
President Diaz, to show why the
'United Etates considers it the con-
stitutional government of Nicaragua. "
The reaction of Congress was one
of grave attention. In the house, Re-
publicans rose and applauded and
there was some applause on the'
Democratic side. The Senate listen-
ed in silence and it fell to the lot of '
Senator Borah, as committee chair-
man, to move for the printing of the
message as a public document. Mr.j
Borah had no comment to make, he
said, since Secretary Kellogg is to ap-
pear before the foreign relations com-
mittee Wednesday.

Would Have Campaign

Finds Committee .5ake Tnvesti-
gation of Pennsylvania Scandal

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 10.-A thor-
oughgoing investigation of the sen-
atorial election in Pennsylvania last
November by the special Senate cam-
c paign funds committee, is proposed in
a resolution introduced today by Sen-
ator Robinson, the Democratic leader.
The resolution was referred to the
committee on audits for a recommen-
dation as to the amount of money the
campaign funds committee may spend
and when that report reaches the
Senate, friends of Senator-elect Wil-
lam S. Vare will open their fight to
have the inquiry conducted by the
elections committee as is customary.
The investigation into the election
of Vare, who already is under Senate
fire because of the heavy expenditures'
in his primary campaign, will be on
the basis of charges of fraud and !
j corruption, charged by his Democra-
tic opponent, William B. Wilson, in a
petition of contest filed with the Sen-.
ate Sautrday.
After the Robinson resolution was
introduced, Vice-President Dawes sub-
mitted to the Senate a letter from
Governor Pinchot, of Pennsylvania,
saying that he could not certify that
Mr. Vare had been duly chosen sen-
ator by the qualified electors of the
state because he was convinced that
"frauds committed in his interests
have painted both the primary and the
general election."
Poth Senator Reed, Democrat, Mis-
souri, chairman of the campaign funds
committee, and Senator Reed, Repub-
lican, Pennsylvania, who is leading
the fight for Vare, declared that such
a certification of an election by a
governor of a state was void.
The Pennsylvania senator added
that Governor Fisher, who takes office
this month, could give Vare a new
France Fears Influx
Of U. S. Automobiles
(By Associated Press)
PARIS, Jan. 10.-France is dread-
1ing what is termed the "coming in-
vasion of American automobiles." It
is generally taken for granted that
this year or next, American car man-
ufacturers will start in earnest to sell
their wares over here.
There are many signs in America
that are interpreted here as "presag-
ing the evil day." One of these is the
sharp competition between makers of,
i small cans. The French feel that
I some or all of the light car makers
will need to expand their markets in
order to maintain the low cost of pro-
duction and that with lowered. prices
I American cars probably can outsell
the French in their own territory, re-
gardless of the high tariff.

Appointment of a committee to
make an investigation into the first!
two years of instruction in the Uni-
versity and the consolidation of cours-
es requested recently by the Board of
Regents was made yesterday by Pres-
ident Clarence Cook Little. Dean Al-
fred H. Lloyd of the Graduate school
was named chairman temporarily and
Registrar Ira D. Smith will act as,
The committee will make a special
investigation into the present require-
ments of the first two years of college
work, and the possibilities of reor-
ganization to eliminate too frequent
presentation of courses taken by only
a few students and also to eliminateI
duplication in the courses given. A,
general survey of these two years will
be made by the committee with this
in mind.
Wisconsin has attacked the prob-
lem by establishing an experimental
college in connection with the univer-
sity, under the direction of Prof.f
Alexander Meiklejohn, which will give1
the students for one year a complete
course in ancient civilization and for
the second year a course in a modern
civilization, without other academic
work. The students will then be given
full junior standing. President Little
feels that a thorough investigation
will be more fruitful of results here.

PEKING, Jan. 10.-Agitation againt
foreigners is'spreading rapidly over
interior China and their condition has
become precarious.
Dispatches from foreign officials at
Hankow received today stated that the
British were removing their mission-
aries from all places they could reach
j in the provinces of Huteh, Hunan, and
Se Chwan in the Yangtse river basin
and from Fukien province along the
Concessions Taken Over
The nationalist government has
taken over tmeporarily the adminis-
tration of the British concessions at
Hankow and Kiukiang, cities on the
Yangtse where coolie mobs incited
by anti-foreign speeches and propa-
ganda a few days ago tore down Brit-
ish concessions barriers and swept in
riots over the foreign section. Amer-
ican and British women and children
placed aboard river steamers to es-
cape jeering have arrived at Shanghai
to receive the protection of White res
idents there.
The Canton soldiers of the national-
ist government, unpaid for months,
have become surly and foreigners ex-
pressed little confidence that they
could be controlled. Transportation
was sought to Hankow to convey more
American women and children to
Shanghai, following those who de-
parted last week.
Urge Foreigners To Return
Officials of the Cantonese, or na-
tional government, which began its
drive for a unified China last spring
from the southeastern provinces of
Kwangtung and Kwansi were endeav-
oring to induce foreigners to return
to their concessions and resume busi-
ness, but with little success. The
Cantonese were reminded t h a t
throughout their successful campaign
over a large portion of China, they
had secretly, under Russian tutelage,
issued official proclamation of intent
to abolish all foreign concessions.
Business at Hankow was at a stand-
still. Foreign men declined to reopen
their business places until develop-
ments gave theta more faith in the
promises of the Cantonese to pre-
serve order.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 10.-Furthe
precautionary moves by the Wash-
ington government to insure readi-
ness of its naval forces to protect
American lives in China, should the
need arise, were disclosed today at
the navy department.
The cruiser Huron, recently reliev-
ed as a flagship of Admiral William
commanding the Asiatic fleet, and en
route to Puget Sound navy yard, to
be decommissioned, was held at
Guam, in readiness to pick up the
marine detachment there for service
in China, should it be called for by
Williams on his arrival in Chinese
waters from Manila.
Is Precautionary Measure
It was reiterated by Secretary Wil-
bur and Major Lejune, commandant
of the marine corps, that the Huron
was diverted purely as a precaution-
ary measure on the initiative of the
navy department itself. This was
confirmed at the state department
where it was said that no request for
naval forces had been received from
the American consul at Shanghai, the
point where attention of various pow-
ers is now centered due to the size
of the foreign population and the
fears, exprssed in press dispatches,
that the anti-foreign demonstrations
might spread to Shanghai.
To Reorganize Battalon
Steps taken to reorganize at San
Diego, California, a marine battalion
available for instant movements in
any direction have formed another
element of the precautionary meas-
ures taken by the navy department.
It was emphasized, however, that
mobilization of the battalion was or-
dered for the purpose of having ready
a force for quick transportation, eith-
er to Guam, or direct to China.
