MANY HO IUI? BLOWS TO ATOMS

Barcelona, Nov. 25.-?A terrible acci?
dent resulting in a sad loss of life
occurred to-day at Palma, chief of the
islands of Mtljorla, 130 miles south of
ibis city. Eighty p irsons, injost of
whom were women, wer.: employed In
emptying "hi cartridges outside the
walls of the town whet: one of the cart?
ridges exploded. There was a large
quantity of powder that had been tak?
en out of the cartridges lying about, and
tliis was Ignited by the discharge of the
cartridge, A tremendous explosion fol?
lowed, which shattered Hie masonry of
the town walls, which are extremely
thick, and did considerable damage to
houses. What the exact loss of life
was has not yet been ascertained.
Tlie bodies of seventeen dead have
been found, but It Is feared that many
more were killed, their bodies, perhaps,
having been blown to atoms, as a num?
ber of those who were at work have not
have hot been accounted for. Forty
persons were seriously wounded, and
some of them will die. Many of the
dead and wounded wer.- found al con?
siderable distances from Hie scene of
the accident, having been hurled bodi?
ly through the air by the force of the
explosion. Some of the dead were ter?
ribly burned and mangled, so much
in a number of cases that Identifica?
tion will be extremely difficult, If not
Impossible. An official Inquiry' Into the
cause of the disaster will be held.

London. Nov. 25.?The light between
Billy Flimmer and Palmer at ill' pounds
for a purse cd" 1.500 pounds took place
to-night. The referee stopped the light
In the fourteenth round, and awarded
the battle to Palmer, owing to liltn
mer'S brother entering the ring. The
tight took place at the Bollingbrokc
Club; Roth men fought fast from the
beginning. The (list and second
rounds were lu Palmer's favor. The
third, fourth, and 11 ftli were pretty
even, neither man getting much the
better of tlie other. Thereafter Palmer
had the advantage in nearly every
round, und in the fourteenth round,
when the light was awarded to Palm?
er, Pllmmer was dazed by the pounding
Palmer had given him.
Another event on the programme
was a light between White and McCoy.
The latter had the advantage In the
firs! six rotllids. Then White picked up
and won the battle.

A SUPREME COURT1 DECISION;
Ttao aicniltitr of llio Wtiril* '?Letter"
null "Deposited'" ItrfliMUl.
"Washington. Nov. 25.?A definition
was given by the Supreme Court of the
United States to-day of the meaning
of the words "letter" and "Ueposllod
In the mails" as con tallied in the sta?
tute Imposing penalties for the embez?
zlement of u letter from the malls, it
was announced by Mr. Justice Brown;
in disposing of the case of George
Goode. a letter-carrier In Boston, con?
victed of abstracting a letter from
the Uoxbury branch of that city ami
sentenced to the penitentiary for three
years. From that sentence an appeal
was taken lo the United States Supreme
Court on the grounds (1) a decoy letter
with it fictitious address to a person
having no existence and to a house
that had no location, was not a letter
within the meaning of the law: and (2)
that the letter was not "deposited in
the mails" within tin- same meaning.
Upon these pclnts the court said In
their opinion that (1) a letter within
the meaning of the law was a package
that bore the out ward semblance of a
letter and came into the possession of
the defendant In his official capacity:
(2) thai a letter was deposited In the
mail, to all Leal Intent when It was
placed in any compartment ordinarily
used for holding mail at any stage of its
progress from the sender to the receiv?
er; that il did not reach III,- box from
which Goode extracted it In the regular
channel had no influence upon tlie qual?
ity or character ol the letter. Of course
.??nil the Court If It had been drop
led op the Moor of the office or laid
upon a desk it could no; be said to have
1 ei n deposited In the mail.

Th.- pathetic Incident at the dose of
Mr. justice JlK?tson'S career, referred
to by the Attorney General, his com?
ing from a shit room to attend tin re?
hearing of the Income lax cases, was
characteristic of the man. Oev >till u to
duty had marked his eourje through?
out, and he found in its inspiration the
strength to overcome the weakness of
the outward man. ns. weary and lan?
guid, he appeared In his seal for the
lasi time In obedience to the demand
of public exigency. The response to the
roll call under such circumstances
gives complete assurance-^-though, in?
deed, it was not needed-that when,
a few Wieks later, he came to the pass?
age of the river. Good Conscience, to
whom in Ills lifetime he had spoken,
met him there, lent hlni Ills hand, and
so helped him over. The resolutions
