Two Steamers Wrecked on tlie
Equinoctial Gales and Fog Cuune
Losh of Reckoning and Marino
St. Johns, X F., Sept. 18. The equi
noctial gales and dense fog sent to de
struction two fine steamers near here
last night. The first to go abhore was
the Rhodora, fifteen days from Boston,
England, vto Philadelphia, in ballast
She had been enveloped in dense fog since
Mondav, unable to get observation and
steering by dead reckoning. Capt. Flawn
supposed himself well beyond Cape Race
nnd was driving her at best speed with
fore aud aft canvas set, "when at dusk last
night the lookout sighted land. Then
her rnglnes were reversed, but they had
no effect, She ran on Homhead, eight
miles north of Cape Race, and the seas
speedily pounded her to pieces. Tier
engine crew barely eEcaped with their
lives, for. the machinery collapsed and
the engine room was soon a mass of
broken iods and plates.
The sailors launched the two starboard
boats, as the port boats were smashed by
the falling masts, and into them the'
twenty-five men crowded, each grasping
a life buoy and not waiting for food or
effects The haste was rendered impera
tive because the bunker of coal had taken
fire and the hull wab rapidly breaking
Scarcely had thej left the side of the
boat when the boilers blew up, tearing
the decks to pieces and breaking the hull
into two parts, the stern portion sliding
back int-j deep water and sinking to the
bottom. The boats kept together all night.
The 111-cltfd stokers and seamen suffered
severely from the ex posure, and it was with
difficulty that the boats krpt afloat, as
they ix ere filled by the seas, constantly
kcepingallhandt busy baling out the water.
This afternoon the Coast Mail steamer
sighted and rescued them. They were
drifting seaward. and, had they misted her.
would probably have perished.
At 7.30 last night, at Great Island,
thirty-five miles north of the scene of
the Bhodora disaster, the steamer Eugenie,
a Norwegian tramp, sixteen days from
Shields to Louisburg, in ballast, also went
ashore, running into a break between the
cliffs 200 feet high. Had che gone fifty
yards either way she would have shat
tered herself against the sheer wall and
sunk with all hands in deep water, but
as it is, she lies in a natural cradle,
her bottom punctured by numberless roefcu
and her bows stove in.
Her boatbwaln, at great risk, made his
way up the steep cliff with a slight line
attached to his body- To this a heavier
one, was bitched, and by it the crew or
twenty two and Capt- Hansen's wife, whj
was on board, were got to the top. All
night was spent on the cliff, without food
or shelter, but this morning the castaways
sigrfaled the mainland and were taken off
Much alarm wab felt here this morning
when reports arrived of the boats being
found broken iup. It wab feared the Bho
dora's crew had periahed, and the British
warship Buzzard was about to sail for
the scene, when it was learned that the
crew had been rescued.

The Sultan, too, hopes and intends to
gam a rewaid for this afternoon's act
of c mplalsance In the shape of conces
sions in the matter of Crete. This he
plainly showed In an Interview yesterday
with SIgnor Pansa, the Italian ambassa
dor at Constantinople, when he said that
in return for Turkey's yielding in the
matter of peace, he expected that the
powers would show leniency concerning
Crete. To Signor Fansa's surprised re
mark that the autonomy of Crete, to
which Turkey had consented, had already
been agreed upon, the Sultan replied with
a gesture expressing "We shall see."

LEE GOING BACK TO CUBA
President Requests Him to Re

SEES NO END OE THE WAR
The Consul GenerulLfJer a Long
Conference "With Ir 3J"eKinty
Consents to Return? tosQlls Post
Crisis Believed to Bd"senr and t
Change Not Desired.
The conference of Consul
the President jesterday'settled oue ques
tion that has been a subject of discussion
for some weeks. T-here will be no change
in the office. Geii.'LeeT-watTasked by the
President to return to -his post and remain
there until -the crisis wasover, and he
intimated that he shoufd prefer to havo
him remain during the' remainder of the
present Administration:. .Gen. .Lee agreed
to the request of the President, and aftei
a seasou t f rpst at. his home in Covington,
Va., he will go back, starting for Havana
on the 20th of next n:onth.'
The fact that tho4P,rhideht has signi
fied his desire for Gen. Lee, who is
thoroughly familiar 'with the subject, tu
remain in Cuba, points strongly to the ex
istence of the belief in the mind or Mr. Mc
Klnley that a crisib Is approaching and
that it would not do tcfla-Ve a new man
on the ground at such"-ajcrltlcal moment.
Another thing connected wjth this inter
view is also of significance. -Gen. Lee has
fretted long under the inactivity thnt has
been shown by both the. Cleveland and the
McKinlcv Administrations" Srld has told
his friends that he would noli stay in Cuba
unless there were some positive steps taken
by his Government. That jtie has been
persuaded to return indicafes that Gen.
Lee is satisiied the Administration at
last intends to do more tlikn engage In
the exchange of diplomatic ifptes that may
pass between the two governments for
years without settling the trouble in Cuba.
With a continuance of present conditions
it is said that Gen. Lee w'quld not have
acquies-ced in the PrcsIdent'Sfrequest.
Geu. Lee wab with the President for an
hour and forty minutes, and.dunng that
time the President would not be disturbed.
Secretary Alger, who has taken a lively
interest in Cuban affairs, was also at the
conference, and asked many questions.
Gen. Lee submitted his report verbally and
went thoroughly over the w'hole situation.
He pointed out to the President the rea
sons for his firm belief that it was Impos
sible for the Spaniards to subdue the rebel
lion. That they were succeeding in de
spoiling the island was true,, but that was
all they were accoiupiishlng. The Cubans
were as numerous as ever, and were con
ducting the war wlthEUCcess to their arms.
The present wrt -ot thing, with the
Spaniards evading battle, and their men
dvlng off or sick, would never, Gen. Lee
told the President, put down the war be

It is understood thatjie urged the active
Interference of thlsr Government to bring

The President evinced the liveliest in

questions, particularly as to details, where
they had been omitted by Gen. Lee. While
he sought to bring out the fullest possible
