Naaskl.It is feared that the Casualties in Tokyo will exceed even those of the great disaster of 1856, when more than 100,000 were killed in Yeddo alone. It is reported that Fuji spinning mills, near Mount Fuji, collapsed and that 8.000 of the operators perished. At Hakone, a famous mountain re, sort, it is said to be easier to count the living than the dead. A number of volcanoes are reported to be active, The cities of Tokyo and Yokohama were described by one Associated [Press informant, the superintendent of he Japanese government wireless station at Tomioka, which operates via Radio Corp0rattont as "like hell." Buildings were falling, fire was spreading every'where; dead and dy- ing were on all sides ; there were cries of horror and fear by the panivtrick- en populace. What quake and fire did not de. stroy on land tidal waves are re- ported to have crusimd or sunk at sea. The fate of the ships in Yokohama barber and what ships were there still remains to ,be determmed- aaatai.Death and destruction aave reared themselves a throne over the empire of Japan, and their joint ru o horror aod pandemonium holds sway from end to end of the Jap- anese nation. Tokyo and Yokohama are b]ok. ened heaps of ruins, as the result of toe err]flc earthquake and fire which struck the island with horrible con- sequences Saturday morning. Loss of life exceeds IOLI)O0, The devastated district covers an area of at least 100 square miles. In ! this district are included the capital city of Tokyo and the great seaport of YOkohama. , Earahquake, fire, tidal wave and I typhoon combined in one horrible al- liance to produce one of the most ap- palling disasters since the dawn of history. Thousands upon thousands of fear-crazed men, women and chll. dren were entombed a,,e in the fear, some mountains of debris caused hy the crumbling of thousands of build. lugs. Yokohama, In addition to th earth, quake and tYphoon horrors, was at. tacked by a huge tidal wave. which swept up the tarbell, carrying away all water front buildings and engulfin all shpping. Fears are felt for the safety of crews ana passengers of vessels in the port at this time. One hundred thousand peop'.e are dead. Thousands and thousands of bodles are lying in the streets, while hum, berless people Were buried alive and then burned to death. All city wards at Tokyo excep Shiba are devastated. All newspaper offices and plants, leludlng the building of the Japan Advertiser, were destroyed. Fegr are felt for hundreds of fo signers in Tokyo and Yokohama at the time of tae catastrophe. , No definite information' a to the fate of any foreigners iS available.

Mr. Cantrill, who was operated ou for a ruptured appendix and periton, ttls, was said by his physicians to be improving all week. hut at 11:30 o'clock Saturday turning he suffered a relapse. Mr. Cantrill went north for a rest immediately after the primary ec- tion of August 4, in which he defeated Alben W. Barkley for the Democratic nomination for governor. He re- mained at a summer resort until last Monday when he ws brought hack to Louisville, and an operation was performed that evening. Bllbtins ssued by his physicians after the eration and continuously until Satur day said that he was doing well, ann Mr. Morris predicted h recovery within a few weeks ume. Under the Kentucky laws it now becomes the duty of the Democratic stats executive comraittee to name a candidate to take the place of Mr. Cantrlll on the ticket. The ehalrman of this committee had already issued a call for the comm|ttee to meet her next Saturday. It was not stated on the call that such a procedure wa. contemplated, but in view of Mr, Can- trill's d,ah it i. flow expected that the commltco will take such action. Several names have been suggested for the place, but sentiment apparent ly has not crystaUzed around any one man. Nothing definite in the way of annouacments or making plans will, be done until after be fu- neral of Mr. Cantrill. The question of the eligibility of Alben W. Irkley, whom Mr. Cantrill defeated In the! Democratic primary, has been raised. and appears to be still isettied, el- though the consensus seems to be that Mr. Barkley Is not eligible.
