Madrid, Nov. s.—The terrible disaster
which wrecked the port of Santander
and destroyed hundreds of lives sent a
thrill of horror throughout Spain.
Kvery piece of news which reaches
Madrid not only confirme the most sen
sational reports, but pictures the dis
aster in more vivid colors than hitherto.
The story of the great disaster, as gath
ered for the Associated Pi ess, ia as fol
lows :
STORY OF THE DISASTER.
The Cabo Machicbaco, a Spanish
steamship belonging to Bilboa, caugnt
tire about 3 o'clock Friday afternoon.
The origin of the lire is unknown, but
it was soon beyond control of the ship's
crew. The local Are department and a
detachment of the civic guard were sent
to the scene, and the leading municipal
authorities aided in the effort to cave
the steamer. In tha meantime thou
sands of people crowded to the quay
and thronged the 'promenades contigu
ous to it. Tbe fire quickly ignited the
petroleum which formed a part of the
cargo. Twenty cases of dynamite,
which were registered on the Bbip'B
papers, were carried ashore, bat the
ship also had on board 480 caees more
which did not appear on the papers and
of wbicb the authorities bad no
knowledge.
AN AWFUL DETONATION.
Abont 4 :?0 p, m. the ship'B boilers
burst with a terrific report and aoon
after there was another terrible detona
tion. The steamer seemed to open in
half, sending a blaze of fire skyward,
over which a crown of smoke rested for
several minutes. Tbe report waa of
such awful intensity that it ehook the
earth for milea around; caused houses
to totter; smashed every window within
the radius of a rifleshot; filled the air
with a mass of flying iron, burning
wood, blackwted timbers ar.ti foorcbeti
beams, which aoon aftsr fell upon the
neighboring bouses, scattering death
and destruction wherever it crushed
downward. The explosive shot tons of
iion ore, which composed part of the
ship's cargo, into the uir, where it
mingled with the burning fragments of
the steamship, a tag and the wooden
quay, as well aB with the mangled bodies
of hundreds of unfortunate people who
were hurled upward, and the falling of
this horrible mass can be better imag
ined than described. Flaming splinters
set fire to hundreds of buildings, caus
ing a frightful panic.
FORCE OF THE EXPLOSION.
The force of the exploding dynamite
caused euch a concussion that it actually
sank hundreds of small crafts in tbe
harbor, in addition to setting tire to a
large number of other vessels and start
ing conflagrations upon several of the
larger ships, including the Alfonso XII.,
which vessel, as already cabled to the
Associated Press, caught fire so suddenly
and burned so fiercely that 40 of her
crew lost tbeir lives op board of her.
Tbe damage to foreign shipping ia said to
be very great.
For some time after tho disaster the
people were positively stunned with
dismay at the horror, and then followed
a panic during which hundreds of people
are reported to have gone stark mad,
while the great majority were to par
alyzed with fear and the shock that tbey
were incapable of moving to the assist
ance of tbe dying or making any effort
to extinguish the flames which began
to spread with moßt threatening ra
pidity.
MANGLED AND BLACKENED CORPSES.
Along the quay and promenade man
gled and blackened corpses were scat
tered here and there, or in heaps, in
many caees upon dying persons, whose
fearful shrieks of agony filled the air.
Over 100 people are said to have been
precipitated into the tea by the explo
sion and there met their death. A train
just arriving waa wrecked by the explo
sion and Bet on fire, and the majority of
its passengers were burned to death.
Soon after tbe explosion whole blocks
opposite the quay were blazing and
other portions of the city were aiao in
flames.
MEASI'RICS OF RELIEF.
In the midst of the horrible panic a
few men retained presence of mind
enough to ride to the nearest railway
station** and send telegrams to the gov
ernment and the authorities of other
cities imploring succor. The cities of
Valladolid, linrces, Bilboa and Barce
lona immediately took steps to assist the
stricken city. Fire engine?, physicians,
medicine and food were soon sent to re
lieve the distress. Large forces of troops
were also dispatched.
LOSS OF LIFE AND TROPERTY.
The monetary loss sustained is enor
mous. The loss of life has not yet been
determined, but Borne hundreds of
bodies bave been identified, while
others will never be recognized from
among the mass of blackened trunks,
heads and limbs which bave been gath
ered together in a heap.
A man was killed by a piece of iron
falling at Pena Caeille, two kilometers
distant from where the steamer blew up.
The steamer's 1 anchor fell 800 yards
away from where the explosion took
place.
Many details of the explosion and
fire are still lucking, owing to the fact
that telegraphic ami postal communica
tion is not renewed.
Santander wae lately among the pros
peroua towna of Spain, tut tho diaaster
which baa overtaken it will take many
years to repair.
(WrVli CRIMINALITY.
The whole country ia iridignant at the
criminal conduct of the captain and
j crew of the Cabo Machicbaco, as well as
j the criminality nf those who shipped
the contraband 480 cases of dynamite,
the general opinion being that the gov
| eminent must take immediate steps to
I punish the people who shipped the dy
j namite,aa tbe death of the captain and
! crew of the ateamer is but a poor com
pensation to the thousands of victims
and the destruction caused by their
i criminality.
IDENTIFIED VICTIMS.
London, Nov. 5. —The Madrid cor
respondent of the Timee says: Up to
1 the time of sending this dispatch, 125
' bodies have been identified and buried
I at Santander.
BRAZILIAN REBELS,
Minister Mendonca Makes Light of tho
Revolution.
New York, Nov. s.—Dr. Salvador de
Mendonca, Brazilian minister at Wash
ington, is in the city. When seen,
Mendonca epoke disparagingly of tho
rebels' effort to overthrow the govern
ment and diecredited many assertions
made by Senator Ruy Barbosa, a Brazil
ian exile, who represents tbe revolu
tionary party. Minister Mendonca
stated tbe fleet which the government
had gathered in this country wouid sail
about November 17tb.
UN THE BANDITS' TRAIL.
ROBBERS PURSUED BY BLOOD
HOUNDS IM ARKANSAS.
Two of the Ollphnnt Gang In Jail and
Four Still at Largo, but Their
Capture Only a Qikestlon
of Time.
Batbrville, Ark., Nov. s.—Thia town
has been in the midst of moat intense
excitement all day. Two of the Oli
phant train robbers captured yesterday
are in jail here, and the posse in pursuit
of tbe iour men still at large came upon
them at an early hour thie morning two
miles from Jamestown and a lively run
ning fight ensued. The bandits were
forced to abandon six of their horses
and take to their heels. They also
abandoned several overcoata, pistols
and a lot of jewelry. Towards noon a
telephone message waa received from
Jamestown stating that the bloodhounds
were within riftt-shpt of the robbers,
and they were firing at the hounds. - At
5 p.m. another skirmish took place be
tween tbe opposing parties, but no one
waa hurt. The bandita are making for
the White river bottom a on fool and
hiding in the caves along the banks of
tbat stream. Hundreds of men are out
and it is thought to be impossible for
the bandits to escape. Jack W. Wack
erty, who was suspected of knowing
more about the robbery than he would
admit, waa put under arreet today.
Fresh bloodhounds aie on the wav hero
from Memphis and will be put on the
track in the morning.
AN fKUK.NCV MEASI'KE.
Congress Likely to Issue Greenbacks to
Relieve the Treasury.
Washington, Nov. 5. —It is poasibl9
that the first thing the ways and means
committee will be called upon to do
when congress reassembles, will be to
put through some urgency measure for
the treasury. Thia may be done by in
creasing the internal revenue taxes for
the time being by the issue of bonds or
by issuing treasury warrants. The war
rants would have to be authorized by
congress, and although called warrants
would aimply be another name for
greenbacks, and the warrants would bo
redeemable in gold. Tbe advisability
haa been discussed of authorizing the
payment of bonds in these warrants,
thus putting more money in circulation
and at tbe ea.ne time relieving the equ
ation in the treasury to a considerable
extent. Another subject discneßed by
some membera of the committees ia the
proposition to authorize the issue of a
certain amount of greenbacks to supply
the deficiency in revenues which the
tariff reduction will make.

CAME TOGETHER IN A CUT.
A Frightful Accident on the
Central Pacific.
Two Freight Trains Meet at
Fall Speeii.
A Terrible Smashnp Is the Result of
the Collision.
Two Trainmen and Four Tramps Killed*
Two Other Train men and a Fifth
Tramp Hnriously
Injured.
By Ihe Assoc! sled Press.
Reno, Nev., Nov. s.—One of the
worst railroad wrecks that ever hap
pened on this division of the Central
Pacific occurred at 8:30 o'clock thia
morning, between freight train No. 10,
westbound, and No. 7, eastbound, about
a mile west of Salvia, a email station 18
milea east of Reno, resulting in the
death of Fred Leach, brakeman, west
bound, and Charlie Uivens, fireman,
same train, and four tramps not yet
identified, and injuring three others,
namely: Jamea Bird, engineer of No. 7,
left leg broken at ankle, very badly;
Tom Morehead, hia fireman, cut about
head, and a tramp named William E.
Vcb, who says he iB from Chicago and
haa a wife living there. Vos has a very
severe scalp wound and it is feared hia
brain is injured and hia recovery ia
doubtful.
Tbe trains came together in a cut on
a eharp turn, going at full speed. Tbe
engine pulling No. 10 mounted tbe one
going east, co that they nearly changed
poeitions. Fourteen or fifteen freight
cars were smashed to atoms. Leach waa
on the engine of hia train and waa
caught between the boiler-head and
tank, both of hia lege were crushed to a
pulD and caught in auch a way that it
wae impossible to get him out. He
lived two hours after the collision, per
fectly conscious all the time, and begged
his companione to kilt him and end hie
suffering. After death it waa found
necessary to cut off hia legs cloee to hie
body in order to extract it from the
wreck.
The tramps killed were in a box car
cloee in front of train No. 10 traveling
west.
Tbe cause of tbe accident was a mis
understanding of orders. It will take
an official inquest to fix the blame where
it belongs.
The bodies of fonr trampa ware
lirousbt to Reno tonight. An inqueat
will be held tomorrow. The body of
Leach waa taken to Trackee, Engineer
Bird will be taken to tbe company's hos
pital at Sacramento aa soon aa tho road
ib cleared. Vos, the injured tramp, will
he brought to the county hospital at
Keiio, if bo lives. The company sent
surgeons to the i cene as eoonaa poeaible,
and used every means at their command
to care for the dead and injured.

In Brazil.
London, Nov. s.—Official confirma
tion is received here by the naval au
thorities of tbe death of two seamen and

tain a supply of sand for
holystoning the decks. During their
stay ashore the Britieh party approached
an old Brazilian government powder
magazine which waa protected by n de
tachment of President Peixoto'ssoldiers.
The latter, seeing a number of seamen
digging, believed tbey belonged to the
rebel warships und consequently, acting
under orders, tbe Brazilians blew up
the powder magazine and killed and
injured the British soldiers referred to.

poaition officials. Tbey bave eeenred
half rates from all the railroads for ex
hibitors of freight and bave got tbe

licane renominated Governor McKinisy

tbe Democratic nominee for governor is

Kinley's connection with the present

platform, the campaign haß been almost
one of national issuea. Tbe Democrats
do not concede the state, bat they are
by no means so confident of carrying it

ans expect at least 25,000 plurality for
McKinley. Tbe Probibition party and

A PERSONAL ISSCE IN NEW YORK,
New York, Not. 5. —The whole iisne
ol the campaign in this state which cul
minates Tuesday seems to have been in
the nomination of Isaac 6. Maynard) for
associate judge for the court of appeals,
by tbe Democracy. The opposition to
Judge Maynard has been of such a) na
ture that alt else was lost light of. In
1891 several legislative seats werercon
tested aud tbe returns from the fif
teenth congressional district were re
ceived at the office of the secretary of
state by order of the supreme court. It
is claimed by hie opponents that Judgo
Maynard, in hia official capacity, un
lawfully removed from tie office ol the
secretary of state the electaon return.
It is charged tbat the motivator tbia
waa to prevent the counting of the re
turns by the board of state oanvaeairs
until a new return could he made out
and forwarded. The result ot theco.i
---■ test in the courts practically sustained
! Maynard and gave the Demrcrtitioparry
j a majority of one in the Btate senate,
• giving them aleo complete control ol
! every department of the Btate govern
| ment. Many predict that Maynard
' will be defeated. Sanguine Republicans
claim a sweeping victory for the wb >!e
ticket. The Democrats seem to have
little fear of the logs of the legislature,
and while the Republicans niay again
secure control of tlie senate, the more
conservative of both parties believe the
Democrats will have a majority on joint
ballot.
COMPLICATIONS IN lOWA.
Dcs Moines, la., Nov. -5. —M»ny com
plications on account of tbe Prohibition

cast of the probable result of Tuesday's
battle in tbia state more or let s uncer
