consisted of 12 cars jammed with peo
ple. At Mount Desert ferry, the ter
minus of the lino, tho train" is left for
the boat for an eight-mile sail to Bar
When the excursion train from Ban
gor arrived at tho ferry there was a
lush lor tho steamer Sappho. Tho first
low passengers had crossed t'" gang-
plant in safety and it is estimated" that
200 people w erejmassed upon the plank.
Suddenly they felt tho plank give waj
beneath them. The long timber sup
porting the plank broke in the middle.
The lunges held up one end and the
the chain the other, while the broken
euds of the plank dropped and a strug
gling, screaming mass of hurnanity
was plunged into the water 15 feet be
low the wharf. A few clung to the in
clined sides of the plank, but at least,
150 were struggling hi the water. The
piling of the wharf partiallv peuned
them iu on three sides and the boat
lving at the wharf closed. the outer end
of the owning.
Uopes.md life pieservcrs were thrown

summoned from all directions, but it
was half an hour before the first ar
rived. The freight house at the ferry
was turned into a morgue, the bodies
being taken there for identification as
fast as recovered. Seventeen were re
covered. Three otner persons were
taken on board the Sappho aud died ou
the way to Bar Harbor.
The exact number of dead will not be
known for some time yet, as a strong
tide sweeps under the pier, and some
bodies may have been carried away by
it. A diver, who was set to work vvitli
out delay, was engaged the in search, but
only 17 bodies were found.

Due to a Decision bj United tute Consul
Gooduow In tlie Abbey Case Most of
Their ttiins anil Ammunition Came
From Clilneto l'ort.
Washington', Aug. 7. Hon. John
Gooduow, consul general of tho United
States at Shanghai, rendered a decision
as referee in the consular com t which
will be of far nuchm? importance dur
ing the continuance of the war in the
Philippines. The caMi was in relation
to the steamer Abbey, charged with
taking arms from Canton to Luzon.
The owners of the ' e:el gave a bond
that the ship should laud the arms pur
chased at Singapore, but she did not do
so. The lond was demanded by tho
Chinese customs authorities. Mr. Good
uow held mat it limit be paid. The
importance ot the decision is pointed
out by the Shanghai Alercury, which
said in part:
"When United Stated consular olli
cials have received information that
cargoes ot weapons wero about to be
shipped from Cmua, through urgeut
protests to the Chinese authorities have
been the means of stopping shipments.
Bntwhen the Uuited States olhcials,
through want of knowledge, have been
ignorant ot such contraband runs, tli9
Chinese olliuals have likewise been
blind to these shipments, though no
doubt well aware ot sucn. It is iu this
lespectthat Air. Gooduow has scored
such an important point. On the
strength of that judgment tho officers of
the imperial maritime customs of China
must necessarily do all in their power to
stop shipments of arms to suspicious
destinations. It has been decided, on
the motion of the customs, that China
is liable for any shipments of arms
which get to the Philippines through
lack of diiiigenee or honesty on the part
ot the customs or the Cinueses officials.
"Therefore the judgment in the Drew
vs. Syl ester case will bo the means of
checking tho chief source of supply of
arms aud warlike material that the
Filipinos Ime possessed."
Most of the arms aud ammunition, it
is said, were shipped irom Chiueso
The Xorth China Daily News pub
lisher the decision of Consul General
Gooduow in lull, and comments oditon
illy upon its importance iu the matter
of presenting iurthcr shipments of
arms to the insurgents in the Philip
pines and says that it will be far-reaching
in its effects in stopping the sending
of arm.s to the Filipinos.
