The exact number may never be known, for many bodies were blown into, fragments. There remains little or no doubt this afternoon that the holocaust was the work of plotters. Every Indication points to this as tbe five separate investigations into the cause of the disaster proceed. Alba B- Johnson, president of tl)e Baldwin 'Locomotive works, today changed his mind about the origin of tbe explosion. It was a plot, he declared. Previously be had ridiculed the idea of a plot.

The origin of 'the blare at that time was attributed to the furnace as the damage done'was In proximity to this, while the blaze of last evening was In a part ot the room remote from the furnace. The thought now is that the former fire may have also been of Incendiary attempt. The outcome of the state Investigation will be awaited with interest. Numerous Pires Over Stste.

Under the direction of the new state fire marshal, Rev. T A.

"The situation in Ohio has become most grave within the psst three dsys." declared Plemmlng, todsy. "From every part of the state have come reports of the burning down ot grain elevators, mills and fires ln plants that are closely connected with the manufacture of munitions.

C, April 11.—President Wllsou In conference wtth house leaders, at the capitol today received renewed assurances that there is decided opposition in tbe lower branch ot congress to the army conscription bill. Mr. Wilson went to thn capitol unexpectedly to sound out tbe sentiment ot legislators on his war measures. He conferred for an hour in Speaker Clark's office with the speaker and Majority Leader Kitchin. The latter assured him that there would be no difficulty over the war revenue bills. A half hour before the President's arrival at the speaker's roam, the house way and means, committee had recommended the pU«,*a*laf^the.tZ,pfi»,- 000,000 band iasuaS-BBr-^-WMHta *m fhe prtsM4Rt tha *M. *sms-*m*A** tje Bouse Friday wlth*'tii«inMlfli Of ftpHo- alt Ion. r?\ While he was at the cipitol the house adjourned until Friday. The president urged the importance ot the army conscription bill to both the speaker and to the Kitchin. He made lt plain that a compromise on thb? measure would not be acceptable to the administration. Kitchin, who personally ib opposed to the general staff's plan ot universal, compulsory service, did not commit himself on the conscription bill now before the house committee. He told the president he had not conferred wltb house committee sufficiently to determine whether opposition to the measure would include a small percent or half tbe membership of the house. It Is understood that Kitchin wilt not withhold his support from the conscription bill lf a provision ls written into the bill llmltng its applcston to the present emergency only. His fiieqds declare, however, that he will not vote for a measure which puts compulsory military service on the clibfns of the country permanently. Members of the bouse military affairs committee, opposed to conscription, declare that there is nothing ln the bill as sent to the committee from the White House to limit Ks application to the present emergency. Much of this opposition could be overcome by a plain declaration that the bill ls for tbe duration of the war only. While congress prepared to speed up passage ot tbe "war loan" legislation tbe XTnitod States took up the question of it* distribution. Secretary of the Treasury McAdoo waa In touch with the heads of the finance department of tha entente by cable. It ia expected that he will be able to explain. If called on so to do, exactly wbere the money ts to go. Under present arrangements, the lions share of the $3,000,000,000 which la to be set aside to assist the Allies wlll go to Franc*. Russia and Italy also will receive large sums. Whether, howover. aiy part of the loan will go to Great Britain haa not been decided- Officials here say it is .very likely tbat with the United States taking care of her Allies, Britain will be able to finance an of ber own operations. Representative Kitchin said today that he expected speedy action by the bouse.

The endorsement by tbe national agricultural society of the plan to conserve all food pro* ducts extend the vacant land cultivation, and the creation of a federal food commission to be clothed with plenary powers and to be authorized during the period of the war to supervise marketing and distribution of all foodstuffs and eliminate speculation absolutely and, for the most Hfrt the "middle man profits" has gjeatly'.pleased President Wilson. It had beien realized by thn President. —* Ws advisors that the greatest opposition could be expected to coma from tha farmers to any proposition Halt. carried with it the question of scientific marketing. ' Now that thn national association has endorsed tha plan it is expected that the fear of opposition will not materialize. This will permit the President tn urgn im* mediate passage of legislation which will permit the scientific handling of the entire problem. To Overcome Draft Opposition. The ' administration continued ita efforts today to nullify the general opposition ln congress to the selective) conscription by which lt is expected to raise a real army for action where- ever lt may be needed. It ls realized that the opposition is growing. Ona of the chief sources is ihe national guard. The matter of state pride hdn been very strong In many places and officers wbo have anticipated promotion should the new army be raised under the jurisdiction of their states, and under the usual apportionment plan have brought all of their influence to bear to have their senators and representatives op'pone the conscription plan which would give thn war department exclusive control of tbe naming of officers. The President believes that it will be possible tn get the conscription bill in the shape wbich the general staff has outlined. He personally will appeal In senators and representatives and try torecon- die their views with the desires ot the army. The question of whether the United States shall have representation at the big war council which Is to hn held in Paris next month will shortly be decided, ll Is generally expected that this country will participate and that there will be sent to represent the United States a representative of the president and two army and navy officers of flat rank. The suggestion has been made that Col. K M. House probsbly will act for the President Inasmuch ss he already has made two trips to Europe to consult government heads tbere. Can Uss Ships Seized- Offlclals are pleased with reports that many of the seized German snd Austrian ships ran be made serviceable within a short time. It Is expected that they will be turned over to the shipping board which will operate them, ln this connection thn cabinet at last has decided tn ask that all future publication ot steamship movements, coastwise or trans-ocean, shall stop. Heretofore publication nf arrivals bad been permitted, but tt has beea decided that this too, bas its element of danger.
