Fall RivKn,Mass., Feb. 29. A fright
ful catastrophe occurred at the Casino
rinlc Friday night. The balustrade of
the gallery gave way and 150 boys and
men fell headlong into th'u rinlc, a dis
tance of 30 ,feet. Over fifty were in-
and one is reported dead,
attraction was a game of
between New Bedford and
River.. A liltlo rivalry ex
ists between tho two cities and the rinlc
was crowded, about 2,500 persons being
present. Tho game was hotly contest
ed and the players f recently came to
gether, roughly handling one another.
There wore about seven hundrcd.men
and boys in tho gallery. At 0:35, threo
minutes before 'tnc dnd of tho gamo,
Curly, tho Fall River goal tender, and
Dunning.tho New Bedford rusher.camo
togethor and exchanged blows. They
were parted by Capt. Cotter, but again
rushed at each other. At tills juncture
there was a loud crash and a most
horrible snectaclo petrified tho assem
bled throng. A section of the gallery
rail, 30 feet in length, gave way and a
mass of struggling humanity tumbled
to tho floor. There was such a pressure
from the rear that five rows of specta
tors were carried over, in all about ono
hundred and fifty people. Tho peoplo
scarcely realized what had happened.
Capt Cotter warned them to remain in
their seats and his presence of mind
saved a panic. The crowd surged upon
tho ring surface and a squad of polico
which had been summoned had diffi
culty in clearing tho building. There
were sovcral doctors present and in a
remarkably short space of time
fully twenty medical men xwerc
on tho scene. An improvised
hospital was made t of tho rinlc
"floor. At first it was supposed
that many were killed, but after a
careful examination it was found that
Narcisse, Menard, of St. Mary's street,
was tho only one seriously injured.
His legs were, broken, his head cut and
he suffered internal injuries which re
sulted in death a short time after his
removal-to tho hospital. It is difficult
to estimate the number injured. All
who fell were moro or less hurt.

London, Feb. 20. Tho Chroniclo says
Saturday: "If President Cleveland de
cides to act upon tho resolution of con
gress, his action will bo one that hpain
will perforce regard as hostile to her in
terests. Whatever the rights or wrongs
of the case, no power would tolerate a
request from another power to givcin
dependence to a rebellious colony. Doing
so would involve abdicating all position
of sovereignty. That Spain will do so
is inconceivable, yet it is difficult to seo
what effective opposition she could offer
if the United States is determined to
follow their good offices by action. Tho
American government, however, is en
tering upon a thorny road. It must
be assumed that it realizes all tho re
sponsibilities it proposes to incur."
