One of the most distressing shipwrecks
recorded for years occurred last night,
Ihe Kteamcr City of Columbus ot the Sa
rannah steamship line went ashore on
Devil's Bridge, Gay Head, and was totally
a-recked.
The City of Columbus left Boston at three
j'clock Thursday afternoon carrying eighty
passengers and a crew of forty-five. At
J:43 a. m. Friday, Gay Head Light, bearing
outh half cast, the vessel struck on the
xitsi.le of Devil's Bridge buoy. Tho wind
was blowing a gale from west by north.
Ihe vessel immediately filled and keeled
rver, the water breaking in and flooding
he port side of the saloon. All the passen
gers excepting a few women and children
sune on deck, nearly all wearing life-pre-lerrers.
All the boats were cleared away,
jut were immediately swamped. A ma
jority of the pas-enters were washed over
soard. Seven passengers left the vessel on
1 life raft, an.1 about fortv more took tc
the rigging. At W:30 a. ml the G ly I'ead
life-boat put off and took seven persons.
Another life-boat put off between twelve
ind one. The revenue cutter Dexter c amc
llong about 12:3) and sent off two boaU.
Twenty-one persons, one of whom was
lead, were placed aboard the Dexter, and,
1 ter all the persons were taken from the
resel, the Dexier proceeded to Jf ew Bed
ford. Three person died after going
1 board the Dexter.

I stepped into my room to warm

ras working welL After being below a
ihort time. 1 heard the second-mate, wbc
was in the pilot-bouse with the mate, sing
int to the quartermaster to port the helm.
I jumped out of my room, thinking we had
xme across a vessel bound down the
Sound. I then cried out, 'Hanf aport, not
mowing but it wasavesseland in the moon
light I saw tbe buoy on Devil's Bridge on
the port about two points forward of the
Beam and about 300 yardsdistant. She im
mediately struck. I ordered the engine re
versed and she backed about twice her
length. The steamer immediately stopped
ind I ordered the jib hoisted and endeav
sred to head her to the north, but she filled
forward and listed over to port so the
nlankshire was aboutfourfeetenderwater.
I went ait and told the passengers to keep
rool and get .lfe-preseners. I next told
Ihe officers on deck to get the boats ready.
Uie steamer settled down aft and righted.
It was blowing very hard and a beaw sea
was running. We launched port io. (
boat, which immediately capsized. Tbe
ea was breaking over the steamer's deck,
ind, the stern being under wafer, we were
forced to go up on top the house. I stayed
here awhile, but we were finally oLliged
to take to the rigging. The mate, second

A FIEUr RIDE TO DEATH.
A. Passeccer Train Knveloped In Burning

A stream ot waste oil flowing from a
tank across the Bradford, G 01 dell & Kiu
cua Railroad caught fire this morning. A
passenger train from Wellsville for Brad
ford ran into it, and the train was imme
diately enveloped in flames. The trace for
a distance of one hundred yards was cov
ered with oil. It is believed that gas, com
ing in contact with the fire box of the en
gine exploded, firing the oil, which spread
on the wind, and enveloped the doomed
train in an instant in a mass of flames. So
Intense was the heat that the windows
cracked and fell In. In less time than it
takes to write it, a passenger coach and
baggage-car were converted into a seeth
ing, hissing cauldron ot fire. It was a ter
rible moment. Tbe coach was filled.
There was a rush for the doors;, but the
heat was so intense that tbe panic-stricken
passengers were driven back, and forced to
jump through the windows, landing in the
mow.
A relief train with surgeons and cots
was dispatched to the scene. Upon arrival

over the rails. The moment the gas came
in contact with the fire-box it exploded,
firing the oil. In less than one minut tbe
engine and cars were enveloped In flames.
Great black pillars ot smoke ascended
heavenward. The driving wheels of the
engine, which was dashing along at the
rate of fifteen miles an hour, scattered the
oil over everythliig with a rush and .oar
which might have lieen beard for a mile.
Tae flames leaped fully 230 feet nftead of

A COSTLY BLAZE.
nnrnlng ot the Montezuma ITotrl at Lai
Vegas Hut Sprinc. Jiew Mexico Sixty
two Guests In the House, Bat all Eseap
with the Loss of thttr Effects Ineffective
Fire Service.
Las VrcAS, X. 5I-. Jan. 17.
The Montezuma Hotel, situated at tit
springs, six miles from the city ot Las
Vegas, one of the grandest boteleries in
point of furnishing end surroundings, was
completely destroyed by fire to-day. There
was no loss of life, but there wai of course
great excitement among the guests and
many narrow escapes to people endeavor
ing to save their property at the risk of
their lives.
The fire was discovered about noon by a
servant who was cleaning up one of tha rr
cepl ion-rooms on the second floor to the lah,
of the main entrance. He saw smoke com
ing through the floor near the steam cotL
He first ran out into the hall and shouted
fire, anl then running back into the room,
tore tha radiator from its place. As be did
this, the flames burst through and be had
to run for his life.
The tiro must have been burning some
time, for almost at tic same Instant fire
was d-scovcredbyene of tbe guests, who
also shouted fire at the tap ot bis voice.
The panic that ensued was almost inde
scribable, and mot fortunate was it that
the fire occurred in the day time and not at
night. As it was, the hallways and rooms
quickly tilled with a dense volume of black
smoke tliat cnvelojied the entire interior of
the building in almost midnight darkness,
and the utmost confusion prevailed as the
guests and employes rushed madly through
the halls and endeavored 10 drag their
trunks and other poscssions from their
rooms. This confusion lasted for only a
short time, owing to the fact that the peo
ple nere soon all out ot the burning build-in-.
Tbe hotel was not half full, there being
only sixty-two guests, but there was a full
complement ot servants and employes.
Some of the guests probably one-lourth
succeeded in saving a portion ot their pos
sessions but the employes lost everything.
Of course while all this was goin; on el
forts were being made to stop ihe progress
ot the flames. Tbe fire was so rapid that
the means of fishting fir provided in the
hotel could not be got to work. The fire de
partment of the Spriugs was unable to dc
anything to save the hotel. A special train
lett Las Vegas in ten minutes alter the
alarm was given with the fire department.
Tee six miles were covered in nine minutes,
and the engines ready for action. It was
found the plugs were an inch smaller than
tbe city hose, so no effective connection
was made lor some time. Then tie only
hope was to savo the boiler-bf-use ju; com
pleted at a cost of "tO.'XIO and batn-housc
that cost ?70JM. Tho latter's cornice
blazed up several times, but was saved.
The former escapod only because the trail J
ing betn een it and the hotel was torn down.
The Montezuma was first opened for bus
iness April 7, 11. and was conidered the
equal of any and the superior ot most
places of public entertainment to be found
at aur of the popular resorts in America,
both on account of the completeness of its
appointments anil the elegance end taste of
its furnishings. The house conld comfort
ably accommodate three hundred guests.
The building was of framo. Queen Anne
style, three stories high, gable roofed.
There were 2J0 rooms, all furnished in a
costly and elegant styie. There were la
dies' and gentlemen's reception rooms and
general parlors on all the floors, but the
principal ladies parlor was on the second
floor. This was lumUbed on a scale of ori
ental magnificence. The bridal chambers
were elaborately furnished and finished.
They wefe furnished respectively in blue,
red and ecru, the latter with dark garnet
trimmings. In the upper stories were the
sewing rooms. In the basement were the
billiard-rooms and bowling alleys, all fur
nished in native mountain pine. The ladies'
billiard parlor was in the cupola of the
building. AH around the front and sides
Of the building extended wide balconies.
The fire service was supposed to be per
fect, and complete reliance was placed on
it. There were stand-pipes and hose-reels
on every floor, and it was considered al
most impossible for fire to gain any bead
way in the building. Tbe servants were
completely drilled In the use of the appar
atus, but all this seems to have been 01 no
avail when the real test came. J. iL Barr,
manager, and his wife, recen'lv married,
lost all their personal affects. He deserves
great credit for his presence ot mind and
conrage.
The loss is estimated at SSVWO; insur
nnce, a little over 100,000. The guests, it
is estimated, losa J),OJ0. Everything pos
sible is being done to make them comforta
ble. The hotel was the property of the Atchi
son, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad Compa
nv, and it seems to be considered as a mat
ter of course that it will be rebuilt.
AX0TI1ER HOTEL FIRE.
Burning ot the Sowanee Snlphar Springs
Hotel in Florida Two Lives Supposed tc
be Lost All the Cnesta Escape.
Jacksonville. Ful, Jan. 17.
Xews reached this city this afternoon
that the Siiwaneo Sulphur Spriugs Hotel,
probably the finest structure of the kind in
the State, burned at Suwanee, Fla., early
this morning. Ihe nearest station is at
Live Oak, fully twelve miles from the con
flagration, and accessible only by a car
riage road. The first news "at band reports
that the fire suddenly broke out en the
second floor of the Luilding, directly over
the kitchen, about 4:30 o'clock this morn
ing. Its origin is a mystery. A
strong draft in the halls and high winds
on the outside carried the flames along
with great rapid-ty, and the whole building,
a magnificent lour-sided, flve-turreted
wooden structure, with a great open square
In the center and 1:5 rooms, was quickly
converted Into a roarin; furnace. Fully
100 guests were asleep in the house when
the tl ames burst forth. Many of them were
Invalids and nearlv all from Xorthern
States Nearly all the guests were forced
to escape by leaping from the windows and
verandas, end several suffered broken
IimlM, but no more serious injuries. A Mr.
Palmer, said to be from Xew York, was
badly singed by tbe flames, but
his injuries are not dangerous. A
colored servant girl and a negro
buy are reported missing, and it is
feared that both perisheiU Xo search ol
the ruins has yet beeti possible. Xone o!
the guests saved any of their property, anc
the Io to the owners of the hotel was alte
total, nothing but a small fraction of the
office furniture being saved. The village
possessed no conveniences for coping with
such an extensive conflagration, and had
other buildings lieen near the wnole town
would undoubtedly have been swept away.
The hotel and its iurniture were valued at
SiVUt; the insurance aggresatessrl,00.
The effects of the guests were, of course,
uninsured, and their loss is total. A special
train was sent from this city to their relict
this afternoon.

dolman, or a simple fur-lined circalsvr.
The preference in such stuns is for solid
colors of light brown and gray, sach
tho new eolden brown, ecru, cuir aad
French gray, and a contrasting color is
often added to these to brightest the
up. The fabrics most Hsed for the
dresses are camel" s-hair, bison cloth
and fine cashmere, either the Bicast
?;uallties made in France, orthegeawiava
ndia cashmeres with very fine twHia,
or that woven ia the xig-zag cEaddah
lines- The vest, the high-standing- col
lar, small turned-over cufls, and a slight
baylavcuso plaiting art the plactaloc
introducing a contrasting color, and
the new fancy is to have this fabric of
wool alio, though velvet is still used for
such accessories. A postilion basque. ad
a plaited skirt wdh draperies that art
short and full on the hips and long be
hind, are the directions generally gtvea
for such a dress- A more aovel ar
rangement of the skirt, seen ia imported
dresses of this d-scriptioH. has very
short bouflact drapery in the back, with
the lower part turned under to fall likf
a soft puff on the three wide box pUk
that finish out the skirt to the foot.
The front of such a dress may have s
braided panel down each .side breadth,
and either four or six plait dow& the
front breadth: or there may tie two side
breadths wider than panels, usually
made of figured tapestry wool, or of
cashmere like tho (Ikss, trimmed with
drooping loops or pointed ends of
chenille. Long straight effects are
songht after in the elrapcry of such
dresses, and in the lines of the frost
and side breadths; they are also very
bouffant, but the tendency now is to
use ptds of hair and springs across the
back of tho foundation skirt for enlarg
ing the size, instead of adding volumi
nous breadths of cloth. Here are
very simple and stylish ways cf making
loose, slender and bouffant drapery ol
a singltr breadth of wide stnffs, but this
full width needs to be firmly fastened
along all the edges, leaving nothing to
hang or get out of order. To do this,
the Tower end is first sewed across t
the foundation skirt; the material hi
then turnzd up to the belt, and sewed
there in two very full box plaits. The
draping is next done by a cluster ol
plaits folded closely together rather low
on each side, with their edges sewed
underneath quite out of 'sight; higher
up in the middle of the breadth another
full thick bunch of folds is taken,
tacked permanently, and hidden in f s
fullness of tbe double box plaits of Uie
top. Some modistes add two or three
rows of plaited wigging ins'de the belt
to serve as a bustle, while others prefer
the pillow-shaped pad filled with hair.
Ihe draperies aenws the front and Up
of dresses with plaited skirts or wka
panels are necessarily very short, and
may be made straight across in a
wrinkled apron, or they may be paniers
that are lappM across the front, or else
they may be continuations of two
single breadths used for the tack drap
ery, extended along below the belt,
covering the hips, and meeting in fropt.
where thev are ornamented with
rosettes or jlol bows of velvet or satin

U tgured tapestry is used for the
front breadth or for side panel it also
forms a vest. The favorite shape for
such vests is a single piece in liretoB
fashion that laps across the lining when
it meets in front, and is buttoned on one
side; a row of buttons and of button
holes is placed on the opposite side pre
cisely like the one that is made uso oL
A standing collar of the material of the
vest is at least an inch and a half high,
and there is a rolling collar below this

have said before, the cuirass, or Jersey
basque, which is straight around the
hips. lias lost favor, anil the postilion is
used instead: this is shaped like a riding-habit
waist, but is ampler, with two
lonscr sloping points in front, and is
vcrv much broader across the plaited
square that falU below the waist in the
back: the sides are very short, indeed,
scarcely extending beyond the waist
line. When a vest if not inserted such
a postilion may be made dressy by a
standing collar of velvet, and a rolling
collar, also of velvet, that may be
lengthened into revers. Orifbra:dis

Irrepressible as Ever.
There was a great commotion oa
Washington street the other afternoon.
The na-s of snow which had been held
by the frot immovable upon the root
of a high building, relaxed bv the sud
den thaw, began to slide and fell in a
white and smothering c ascade upon the
crowded sidewalk. By leaping wildly
into the middle of the'street and dodg
ing into the doors of convenient shop
nearly everybody escaped the ava
lanche, but one unfortunate man wa;
caught by it and completely buried
front sisht. Immediately thc peoplt
who had avoided a share in his mis
fortune rushed to his assistance. One
man groped into the snow and caught
him by the leg: another gt a purchase
on his arm. and others gripping him by
clothing and body, in due time he
was brought to his leet again. He pre
sented a sorrowful spectacle, however.
His bat looked like a half-inilated ra
certina, his coat was torn, and his cel
lar hung only by the button on the back
of his shirt, 'and wherever he disclosed
a lodging place for the snow ia his rai
ment or person, there the chilling cle
ment had established itself. He was
apparently lifeless also, aad a great
crowd coll.-cted. with every manifesta
tion of svmpathy. The stranger soon
revived, he sighed and opened his eyes,
the flush of life returned to his ashen
cheek. He saw the concourse about
him and smiled, opening his mouth to
speak, and as ache people crowded
around to hear him. said: - 1 h! that
