Jersey City, 2s. J., Dec, 2. A fright
ful disaster involving the death of six men
and the infliction of mm ions injuries to
thirteen others was reported this evening
upon the ariival of the steamship Western
Laud. On Saturday evening, .November
27, a huge crois rea was suddenly encoun
tered and it fell with terrific lorce on the
forward deck of the steamship. The
Western Lund was then seven days out
fiom Antwerp The deck was crushed in
and buried the unfortunates beneath a mass
of wood and iron debris. The next in
stant the water swept along the gangways
of the main deck earring sever.il persons
The crash was terrific, but before the
appalling nature of the accident was real
ized b the passengers the officers of the
ship had all the men available engaged in
the work of rescue. The injured were
carried into the intermediate cabin, which
wa3 transformed into a hospital. Four sea
men were found to have been killed out
right. They were:
ibismus Sandgen, aged G7. of Antwerp;
his skull was crushed to a jelly.
GiiNtave Durrett, aged Si, of Antwerp,
crushed to death beneath a heavy iron

Th vail volume of water utrcck th
, whals back about fifteen feet from the
stem, and crushed a section twenty-nine
feet in length, and extending the full width
of the steamship.
The second officer mide tho following
statement: We left Antwerp on Saturday,
Novembe. 20, with sisty-nine cabin and
574 steerage passengers," and a full cargo.
At 2:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon,
November 27, we were in latitude 5-i c ,
degrees 49 minutes, longitude 43 degrees
57 minutes. I was on "the main bridge
when I noticed an enormous wave on the
starboard bow. The next minute another
towering wave joined it from the port side;
they seemed to leap into the air as they
mingled; they must have been nearly forty
feet high as I saw their united mass" above
the lower j-ard of the foremast. Then
came a crash of the water upon the deck.
It sounded louder than a dozen canons
fired at once. The water swept from one
end to the other of the main deck carrying
everj'thing before it.
The disaster was not met with in a storm,
merely a good, strong breeze wa3 blowing
from the southwest with a chopping sea.
The vessel was steaming at half speed
seven knots an hour, The day was clear;
most of the cabin passengers were below.
A group of sailors were on the upper deck
under what is known as the forward "tur
tle back." Moving around among them
were several steerage passengers who were
idly watching the sailors weaving "sennel,"
a material for matting used for sails. The
first officer was below: it was the starboard
watch and the captain and second officer
were on deck, the latter being on the
03WKGO, N. Y., Dec. 3. Word has
been received that an unknown schooner
has gone ashore iu Mexico bay, about
twenty-five 'miles from here, and that her
crew are in the rigging. She is supposed
to be the Ariadne.""
The vessel reported ashore in Mexico
bay proves to be the Ariadne, Captain Mc
Ka', with a crew of five men, bound from
Toronto to this port with a cargo of barle'.
When off this harbor last night she lost
her mainmast and drifted down the lake
till 4 a. m. today, when she went ashore.
The captain was soon afterward washed
overboard and drowned, and during tho
day two of the crew were frozen to death.
The remaining three took to the rigging
and were nearly perished when taken off.
Their recovery is considered doubtful. The
vessel was an old craft and was valued at
$S,500. She had a cargo of 10,000 bushels
Wateutowk, N. Y., Dec. 2. An un
known schooner went Jashore at 2:30 this
morning off Stoiuy creek, about three and a
half miles from Woodville. She lay on
the rocks with the waves breaking over
her and is rapidly going to pieces. Three
men and a woman are on board. The life
saving crew from Big Sandy station have
gone to the rescue.
"Women, Wine and Ruin.
Chicago, II!., Dec. 2. The Inter-Ocean
this moiniug bays the most sensational as
well as the heaviest defalcation which has
taken place in Chicago in many years,
probably during its commercial "history,
ha3 been brought to light. Miner T.
Ames, a millionaire coal merchant, is the
victim. Theodore S. Mize, hio confidential
bookkeeper and cashier, and secretar3' of
the Chicago 5c Minonk Coal and Coke Co.,
is tho perpetrator ; of tho robbery that is es
timated at 0100,(J0, and may exceed that
amount. From Jus position as bookkeeper,
cashier, confidential clerk and secretary of
the coal company Mio had ubsolute con
trol of the money of the company and pri
vate funds of Ames.
Mizc is one of the most well known men
in local business and social circles. He is
handsome, styliih iud talented, but the
case is the old story, wine, women and
ruin. His employer, Ames, has known
him from infancy, being an old f rien I of
the 3'oung man's father. He has been i,i
the employ of Ames, since 1872. Within
a couple of years from the time he entered
Ames employ he lcgan a systematic course
of robbery, covering up his dLhonesty by
false entries upon the books. About a
week ago Ames discovered that something
was wrong with his money accounts. Brief
investigation convinced him that large sums
were missing and it is said he then taxed
Mize with dishonesty and declared
he would engage experts to go over the
books. Mi.e at once weakened, broke
down and confessed that he was guilty and
had been robbing ln3 employer lor many
years. He begged fjr mercy, and prom
ised restitution -i far as lay within his
)owcr. Since then all his property has
been turned over to Aimcs. HeidC-j the
extravag.tnt manner in which he and hi-
wife lh ed, it is asserted that iiizc at vsri in

account: then when Anita returned from
Europe Theodore coiift&ed, turned over
hii residence to his employer, and this to
gether with what hi parents g-ive made a
balance in favor of their son.
Mize stood at the office door looking
gloomily out as a reporter entcre 1.
"I don't want to soy anything now," he
id, "until I Jiavc a talk with Mr. Ame.
There are, as you know, always two bides

Chandler's Criticisms Criticised.
PiTTSBUKG, Dec. 2. In his recent letter
to the Boston Herald ex-Secretary Chan
dler said after the presidential cleifion the
chairman of the national committee was in
discreet enough in a published interview
to impute to President Artur and tlw mem
bers of his cabinet a want of fidelity and
zeal in tiie canvass. This charge was false
and was so declared to be at the time. All
possible and appropriate a-&istniicc was
rendered. It could not have been expected
that we should supercede the chairman or
do his work, although it would have been
better if home one had done so.
A rcpoiter of tha Pittsburg Chronicle-Gazette
called on Mr. B. F.
Jones, the chairman of the national
and asked him what he hud to say iu reph
lo this paragraph. Mr. Jones said: The
statements made b' me in the interview re
ferred to by Mr. Chafflller, I then consid
ered neccss-iry and proper to make, and
no v as then know them to be true. The
purport of these statements was that if Mr.
Arthur an I mcmlx-rs of his catsint with a
few excipticiis hud been a loyal to Mr.
Blaine ns Mr Blame would Jjrac been U
Mr. Arthur, had the latter lietn
nominated, Mr. Blaine would have
been president. So far u Mr.
Chandler's reference to me ureonally
I do not feel called on to defend myclf. I
have no taste nor do I fvv any preeiit
occasion for a uitcuwion as to oliticxl
methods with one whose plana and pro
po-uls during the brief iuterrourfce I had
with him in the campaign of 1S8-I were not
such iw to commend ro those having the
success of the ItcpublicKU party at large.
His criticisms at that tunc, of men then the
most prominent in the party, do not seem
to me quite consistent Vfith hi.s prewnt ex
pressions of regrci. In regard to the feel
ing between public men, I would not like
to feel to be called upon to make public
the facts on which my opinion of Mr.
Ch andlfrr is ba'd.

Chicago. Dec. 2. The Tiraas this mora
ing ays although the board of arbitrator
submitted a scaled verdict in tho matter of
the Southern Kansas freight rate, unough
has leaked out to give an idea of their de
cision. St. Louis ii allowed a dlffenntiil
of 5 per cent, on through freight as agaiiux
freight reshipped to Kansas City, or local
rate" from Kansas City to Southern Kansas
points. Por example: When the sum. of
locals from St. Louii to Kansas City aud
Kaunas City to Wichita is $l. the hvjourl
Pacillc and St. Louii Si San Franci-wo will
bi allowed to make a rate from St. Louis to
Wichita by their direct lines of 9." cents a
hundred, and to other points and on other
classes in the same proportion.
Chicago linec through Kansas City aro
also pnwleged to make tho Mime ralo.
Slating it in a nut shell, Kansas City local
or terminal roads are debarred from using
on Kansas City hhipmenU to Southern
Kansas the proportion of through ratei
from St. Lo!ii, as will be hmm. The da
cibion is nothing nor more less than a crnn
promibi. St. Iuis demanded ten cent dif
fercntial and Kansas City contended for
equalisation of through and local rates.
Tlic arbitrators give St. Louis r$ per
cent, differental. The pool is not formed
aud it ia d'mbtful whether tho outcome
will be satisfactory to anybody.
