WAS IT SPITEWORK?
Second Explosion of the
Two More Men Seriously
Fifteen Dead as the Result of the
Many Others Missing—The Cause of the
Explosions Remains a Mystery.
Crooked Work Suspected.
Associated Press Dispatches I
Chicago, July 12. —Tonight another
terrific explosion occurred on the big
freight steamer Tioga that was wrecked
last evening by an unexplained concus
sion in its hold. Fire again broke out,
and for a moment It seemed as if the
huge vessel and cargo were doomed. The
lire department, however, were promptly
01? the scene, and soon got the flames
under control. Two men were injured
by tonight's explosion, Hans Christian
son and Thomas Johnson, members of
the wrecking crew. Both were taken
out alive, but are seriously burned and
The second disaster puts out of ques
tion all attempts to learn to a certainty,
now, the number of victims in the first
Up to nightfall thirteen burned and
mangled corpses had been taken'from
the fatal hold, and one of the wounded
in the county hospital has died. Con
servative estimates put the probable
fatalities at the total of at least twenty.
What caused the explosions was late
tonight the disputed question. One
theory was that a new supply of explo
sive vapor had gathered in the hold.
Captain Phelps expressed the opinion,
however, that something else besides
oil or its gases was in the hold, but what,
he would not venture to say.
The coroner's jury has adjourned until
This was Captain Phelps's first trip on
the vessel, and there are rumors of spite
work cutting a figure in the terrible
affair, hut such gossip is impossible of
Just how many were killed may never
be accurately learned. The list of labor
ers who were on the vessel at the time
of the explosion, in possession oi the
officers, is admitted inaccurate, and
many may have been blown into the
river from the adjacent docks.
The revealing glare of daylight showed
how terrific was the force which wrecked
the powerful steamer. The entire after
part of the boat was a mass of charred
timbers and distorted iron, piled in two
huge masses, one directly in the stern
and the other around the smokestack.
The vessel had settled till her keel rested
in the soft mud of the river
bottom. Water flowed over the
main deck to a depth of a
foot. The surface of the water was
covered an inch deep with a dark green,
greasy oil. The machinery was not
much damaged. The eccentric rods
were bent, the covering was torn from
the cylinders, and some of the steam
The Tioga was one of the largest
freight hoats on the lakes, her dimen
sions being 312 feet in length and 3!) feet

was built for the Erie Railway Company,
at a cost of a quarter of a million dol
THE YSLETA AFFAIR.
The Trouble Not So Serious as at First
Eh Paso, Tex., July 12.—The sheriff
from El Paso reached Ysleta at 3 o'clock
this morning, and succeeded in stopping
the battle between the two belligerent
municipal factions by persuading the
forces of Mayor Alderete to withdraw.
The party headed by Gaal, who resisted
arrest, is in his house, which the sheriff
has surrounded. It is now believed
there were but three men and seven
horses killed, instead of six men as at
first reported. It is learned that the
trouble originated in this way : Benigno
Alderete, as mayor of Ysleta, has charge
of the acequia and had several men
cleaning it out, when Gaal sent a posse
of armed men to drive Al
derete's men from their work.
Gaal claimed that he was mayor,
and put his own men to work,
and refused to discontinue when ordered
by Alderete to do so. The mayor then
secured a warrant for the arrest of Gaal,
to place him under a peace bond and
deter him from further interference with
the acequia. Gaal summoned his armed
followers around him and refused to be
arrested, and the fight followed.
Later—The fight at Ysleta terminated
in a peaceful surrender at daylight to
the sheriff's posse. Gaal, who resisted
arrest, cannot be found. Sixteen men
have been arrested and brought here to
the county jail. It turns out that only
one man is killed—a Mexican of Mayor
Alderete's posse, who tried to arrest
Gaal. Another has a slight wound in
the head. Twenty-two Winchester rifles
and pistols were seized and brought
here, because no Ysleta merchant was
willing to store them. No further
trouble is reported by the sheriff.
The First Ground Broken at Browns
Brownsville, Tex., July 12. — The
first practical step towards the great
Pan-American railway from North to
South America was taken here, when
ground was broken for the Corpus
Christi and South American railway, to
day. The first division is 150 miles
long, and extends from the Rio Grande
to Corpus Christi, at which point
it connects with the railway systems of
the United States. The Rio Grande is
to be bridged from here to Matamoras,
and the line extended first to the City of
Mexico over a route several hundred
miles shorter from St. Louis, Chicago or
New York, than any existing line.
From Mexico City it will continue south
to the Guatemalan line and beyond.

Fort Worth, Texas, July 12.—Great
excitement prevails here over the mar
riage of Mayor Pendleton with a pretty
young telephone girl, after a sudden and
inexplicable divorce from his wife, said
to have been obtained surreptitiously. A
meeting of citizens tonight denounced
his action in the strongest terms, and
resolved that if it was learned to be true
that his divorce from his wife waH se
cretly obtained he will be forced to re

THUNDERING TO DEATH.
A THRILLING RIDE ON THE NORTH
The Engineer of An Express Train Over
powered by His Maniac Fireman—A
Narrow Escape from Destruction.
Janesville, Wis., July 12. —Passen-
gers were thundered toward death on the
Chicago and Northwestern through ex
press north of this city today, over
switches shut barely in time to keep the
train from destruction. Along the track
the train flew, while other trains
were rushed into sidetracks and out of
danger by the frightened trainmen. On
the floor of the locomotive lay Engineer
Steve Hotelling, a man of massive build,
powerless in the grasp of a maniac. The
insane man brandished a wrench which
he had clutched from the engineer's
tool box. Both his arms were in
the grasp of the almost despairing
man beneath him, but the men on the
depot platform at Clyinan, one of the
towns through which the train passed,
could see he had nearly freed himself,
and in another moment, unless
help came, the murderous blow
of the wrench would, fall. The
maniac was Engineer Hotelling's
fireman, C. L. Hastings. Near Water
town be stepped from the cab to the
tender to coal up. He did not return,
and Engineer Hotelling reached back
from his seat and pulled aside the cab
curtain and looked out. As
the curtain moved aside Hastings
bounded in from the tender. He
clutched the engineer about the neck
and threw him headlong to the swaying
footboard. Here the two struggled as
the train dashed on under a full head of
steam. At one time the engineer all
but dropped to the rails beneath the
engine, which, left without fresh fuel,
was slowly losing steam but still
rushed on at a rate that could
mean nothing less than a fearful
tragedy at the first switch left unturned.
As the train swept past Clyman with
out stopping, the passengers and train
crew realized that something was wrong,
and a party hurried forward.
AVrithing and struggling among the
blocks of coal on the tender
they saw the engineer and his
maniac assailant. Hastings was over
powered and'taken to the baggage car.
A moment afterward he fainted. Con
sciousness did not come until twelve
hours later. Intensely hot weather,
made more trying by the temperature
of the cab, is given as the cause of his
insanity, and there are fears that he
INVESTIGATING A CLAIM.
Is Mi-Bride's Tacoma Mineral Property
San Francisco, July 12. —A Chronicle
special from Tacoma says: The county
commissioners put a force of men to
work this morning in school section 1(>,
to investigate the mining claims made
by John G. Mcßride, as ground to get
possession of the land. It is also in
tended to investigate the charge that
the claims are "salted." The property
is worth $2,000,000, as it is right in the
city. The men in the employ of Mc-
Bride and others were disposed to cause
trouble and prevent the investigation.
The men in the employ of the county
were afraid to continue work, and ap
pealed to the sheriff. Six deputy sher
iffs, all armed, now stand guard over
the spot while the investigation pro
gresses, and there is great excitement
in the vicinity. Crowds of people sur
round the place.

The Crew of the Charleston Deserting
Affairs in the Islands—The Fourth of July
Associated Press Dispatches. I
San Francisco, July 12.—The United
States steamer Ranger came down from
Mare Island today and anchored in the
stream. She has been ordered to Guate
mala on account of the unsettled state
of affairs there, to look after the inter
ests of Americans.
While getting under way to proceed to
sea this afternoon, the Ranger took a
shear with the tide and ran into the
Lombard-street wharf, breaking some
cross-beams and the corner of the wharf
shed. The Ranger had her cut-water
carried away about ten feet below the
knight heart, and also had her martin
gale stays carried away. She then
steamed away from the wharf at full
speed, and in doing so smashed the bow
oi her port steam launch and her port
midship boat, which were hanging from
the davits. Notwithstanding the mis
hap, the Ranger proceeded to sea on her
way to Guatemala.

Advices from Honolulu state that
there have been wholesale desertions
from the United States steamer Charles

the sailors, and all but eight were re
taken. The sailors charge that the offi
cers are altogether too severe. They
say they were kept below decks the en
tire time when not needed on deck, and
were not permitted the use of the li
brary presented to them by the citizens
of San Francisco. A man who went
with the ship as electrician, and was re
duced in rank to assistant machinist,
seems to have been the ringleader of

A Criminal Instigated to Commit Per
jury by His Counsel.
San Francisco, July 12. —In the su
preme court this morning Benjamin
Davis was convicted of manslaughter for
killing his wife July 6, 1889. He said
he desired to inform the court that lie
had sworn falsely in two instances dur
ing the trial, but had done so at the in
stigation of Attorney Wilson, who was
his counsel. At the beginning, he said,
he had made a false statement at first in
reference to not having entered his wife's
room after she was shot, and that he
told Wilson the truth, but the latter ad
vised him to stick to his first statement,
as there were witnesses to corroborate
such statement. The second instance
in which he perjured himself, was in
testifying that he did not go down a cer
tain alley-way. He swore falsely to that
because his attorney told him "it would
be better to corroborate the testimony
of witness Alden. The judge postponed
sentence until Wednesday.
A TIMELY PROTEST.
Should Ships With Chinese Crews be
San Francisco, July 12. —At a meet
ing of the federated trades last evening,
the bill for subsidizing ocean steam
ships, pending in congress, was dis
cussed and attention was called to the
fact that the Pacific Mail Steamship
Company, which would probably receive
a subsidy if the bill becomes a law, ein-s
ployes Chinese crews. The executive
committee was instructed to take proper
steps to see that government aid was
not extended to employers of Chinese
labor. The sentiments of M. M. Mc-
Glynn, who said the present growth of
pro-Chinese sentiment in the east made
a revival of anti-Chinese agitation
necessary at once, were generally ap
proved, and this matter was also referred
to the executive committee.
The Pacific Mail and Canadian Pacific
San Francisco, July 12.—Manager
Johnson, of the Pacific Mail line of
steamers, said today that hereafter all
steamers bound to and coming from
China and Japan would stop at Victoria,
B. C. _ It is thought by the agents of the
American line that a good proportion of
the British Columbia trade will be
secured by making Victoria a way sta
tion. The Canadian Pacific in turn is
expected to extend its incoming and out
going lines, so as to include San Fran
cisco. It follows that freights will be
materially reduced, and that, in conse
quence, business between China and
Japan and the United States will receive

THE RAISIN PACKERS' PLAN PRO
Pears and Plums Bringing Big Prices in
Philadelphia—California on Wheels
Due at Chicago—Crop Bulletins.
New York, July 12. —The Commercial
Bulletin says, concerning the plan
adopted by the California raisin-packers
in the matter of a graduated list of
prices for the new crop of raisins, that
the commission firms and jobbers here
consider the move unbusinesslike, and
that it indicates a lack of confidence.
The paper concludes by saying that,
judging from the views expressed by the
majority in the trade, it will be exceed
ingly difficult to induce buyers to take
more than a week's supply at a time,
where prices are adjusted on the sliding
scale, and some even doubt that any
business can be done here at the be
ginning of the season on such terms.
Dealers here report that California
green fruit is retailing at big prices in
Philadelphia. California plums sell
from 35 to 50 cents per dozen, California
Bartlett pears (30 cents per dozen, and
California peaches from 75 cents to $1

The Situation in the Balkans and Trouble
Z Jtwith France Demand His Presenoe at
Berlin—The Peace of Europe Doubtful.
Berlin, July 12.—[Copyrighted, 1890,
by the New York Associated Press.] —
Emperor William on arriving at Eide
Thursday sent dispatches to Chancellor
Caprivi announcing his intention, to
shorten his voyage and return to Kiel
July 21st. The gravity of the situation
in the Balkans, and the increased pros
pect of trouble with France on account
of the English agreement, makes it
necessary for the emperor's presence,
and keeps both the chancellor and Min
ister Miguel from taking a holiday.
Although the prospect of permanent
peace in Europe begins to appear doubt
ful, official confidence remains strong.
Even the probable abdication of Prince
Ferdinand with the consequent revolu
tion in Bulgaria will not be allowed to
involve an immediate European war.
The maintenance of peace, according to
the official view, is certain until after
the conference between Emperor Will
iam and the czar, when the resources of
diplomacy will be exhausted in a final
effort to harmonize the Austrian and
Russian relations in the Balkan penin
The Berliner Tageblatt has a telegram
from Rome which purports to give in
formation drawn from Prime Minister
Crispi. In this it is asserted that the
czar's advisers, considering the time op
portune, insist upon war. The chiefs of
the dreibund, the telegram says, will
make united efforts to maintain peace.
Petitions for American Pork.
Phelps, the American minister, haa
received from Hamburg a copy of a pe
tition which has been sent to Chancellor
Yon Caprivi, and which bears the signa
ture of various steamship companies
and leading firms and corporations. The
petitioners ask for the rescinding of the
prohibition against American pork.
They urge that Germany cannot produce
enough pork to satisfy her own wants.
The price of pork has risen so enormously
that the poor people cannot buy it. The
wholesale price of German salted
bacon is 130 marks per 100 kilo
grams, while American bacon can pay
the duty and be sold at 85
marks. The pork imported from the
neighboring states, although bringing
high prices, is not as good as the Amer
ican article. When the prohibition was
enacted there was no official examina
tion of pork in America, whereas the
United States government is now ready
to make whatever inspection Germany
may ask. When American pork was
allowed to enter the country, no case of
illness had ever been caused by to its use.
If the American inspection should be
insufficient there could be one made in
Feeling Against Bismarck.
Official feeling against Prince Bismarck
has heightened since the report of an
interview with him appeared in the
Frankfort Journal. Even his friends
admit that he has been indiscreet in the
revelation of knowledge obtained by him
while in office. His statements that the
emperor's labor programme, as originally
sketched, was much more extravagant
than as issued, and that his majesty
supposed his programme would tell at
the .elections, have incensed Chanceller
yon Caprivi and the other ministers, and
it is considered that these statements
will lead to an energetic remonstrance
on the return of Emperor William.
