Is the toll of disaster evented bj an avalanche Which tore dowi tlio
mountainside near Wellington toi.lght. '
The two trains wero passing ench other nt the went entrance to
tho Cnscndo tunnel, when the Mi.it mass' of snow,' loosened by the
early tlmw, enmo thundering down upon them. The cars were crushed
tud towed from tho track like paper shells. Two hundred feet ocr a
prt'clulco tho doomed trulns ent, landing at tho bottom under a crush
ing weight of snow.
Passengers Asleep. ' .1'T , ,
Tho passengers vere asleep nt tho time, nnd the first Intimation
they hid of Impending disaster was when the coaches which the) oc
cupied were filmed Wolently oor and pitched down tho mountain side.
The mine nwilnncho picked up sccn locomotives which were hous
ed nt tho station and swept them down Into the mass of mangled hu
manity, twisted steel and genernl ruin. The railway station wns also
caught In the lotlathan grip and, with Its occupants, pitched to Its doom
on the rocky ledgo beneath.
Darkftess Increases Horror. i
The hon'or of the disaster was Intensified by,Ue darkness, while
tho snow made It nil but Impossible to' carry on the rescue work.
Twent)-threo dead bodies were taken from tho ruins, while n score of
mangled BUffcrers were rescued bo fore It was too late. Though tho
rescuers worked with feverish haste, they wero unable to account for
twentj-flye of the passengers. Tlicso are thought to bo biiddd under tho
rocks and other debris which tho snowsllde brought down.
As soon as the news of the disaster reached 'Everett, two rescue
trains were dispatched posthaste to the fccono of tho horror.
Unprecedented conditions prevail In this section as the result of tho
thniv Induced by continued rjjlns nnd warm weather. (The cntlro north

Floods In Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Nevada are car

the destructive force of the loosened storm waters.

WASHINGTON, February 15. In
nu Interview In tho Washington Post,
F. E. Thompson, of Honolulu, dis
gorged hlmscrt of a fow Ideas concern'
Ing Hawaii and particularly with rcf
oicuca to tho liquor Question. Tho
I'ost's story Is as follows:
Congress will meet with much op
posUUrti If it attempts to legislate
morals Into the people of Hawaii, ac
cording to F. E. Thompson, a lawyer,
of Honolulu, who is at tho Wlllardi
Tho pcoplo of Hawaii, Mr. Thompson
tsays feel that lunsnluch as Hawaii
becamo a part of tho United States on
Its own volition, and not bocauso of
any overtures or conquest by this
country, tho legislature of that coun
try should bo permitted to niako Its
own laws for Us moral conduct. There
havo been Introduced In the Senuto
and Hbuso bills prohibiting tho salo of
liquor lit Hawaii, and this proposed
legislation has aroused a )ot of oppo
sition among tho pcoplo of tho Island,
it is said.
"Tho Chamber of Commerce of Ho
nolulu, which corresponds to similar
bodies In the mainland, and other or
ganizations In Hawaii havo memoral
Izcd Congress to Icavo tho matters of
local legislation, -.Including that of the
salo of llqiior.Tjftlth the. local leglsla
ture," said Mr. Thompson last night.
Tho commercial bodies of Honolulu
laso their opposition, to such proposed
Federal legislation not so much uiKI"
tho ground that It maj or may not be
test that HawatlMiavo a prohibition
law, but uppij the1 broader ground
ihat tho Icglslaturo of Hawaii Is, bet
ter able toijuujgp of 'the necessity ol
legislation whRh'hffectB tho moral
of her' pcopleMJrhcy bcllovu that Ho
wall Bhould havo tho privilege of de
termining whether tho people -of tlji
Islands dcslro sumptuary legislation
"It is tho opinion of many pcoplo of
Hawaii that only one sldo ot tno que
tlon has been presented to tho men in
Congress who are actlvo in this, mat
ter. ThoiCurtls bill It Is bollovcd, was
brought about by agitation occasionci
by nubtlcallonsr1n sensational nevvspa
pers and magazines. It js not based
upon (rue conumuns in mo isianu anu
a largo majority of tho pcoplo ot Ha
wall, I bcliovc, nro of tbo opinion that
the people ot the Inlands ought to be
consulted before Congress attempts
to pass a lawiuffcctlng the personal
conduct of tho residents thereof,
, "Hawaii Is prosperous," added Mr.
Thompson. "Our last crop of sugar
was tho largest ind best wo havo had,
and wo received hlghor prices for U
than over before, which was large!)
duo to tho falluro of tho beet produc
tion In this country, and the additional
fact that the 'price of grain mado It
advantageous for tho fanner to piinf
grain instead ot beets,
"Tho people of HuWall do not fear
that the Japanese over will becomo
n menuco to tbp Americanization of
tho islands' addcdiMr. Thompson,
"Tho Japanfcso nro useful and law
chiding Inhabitants. Dccauso of their
inability to becomo citizens they will
never have anything to Bay la regard
to our laws."
