Terrible Tale of Rapine, Murder
and Wanton Cruolty.
A Policy of Extermination Pursued by
the Government of Japan.
Such Barbarous, Cruelty and Defiant Vi
olation of All Ethics of Civilization Has
Few Parallel! la History Even
of the Saraee Races.
Victoria, B. C, Aug. 13. Prom far
Formosa, where for upwards of a
year Japanese troops have been vainly
striving to crush out the seeds of
ppst bcllum opposition to Japan inno
vations, comes a story, which, for bar
barous cruelty and defiant violation of
all ethics of civilization, has fortunate
ly few parallols inlilstory even of tho
savage races of the world. The terri
ble tale of rapine, murder and wanton
cruolty reached hero by tho steamer
Empress of Japan and fully bears out
tho statement on tho situation in For
mosa given publicly by Rev. Dr.
, Macltay on his return to that island
six months ago. Other equally credi
ble correspondents are now tfio wit
nesses against Japan and tho burden
of their arraignment is that, seeing
neither fame nor profit to be gained in
the subjugation of tho Formosans by
tho arts of modern warfare, recog
nized as legitimate by civilized na
tions, tho Japan troops sent- to tho
island have embarked in a crusade of
blood, their object being to crush out
all signs of discontent, by as far as
possible exterminating the native pop
ulation. In this campaign there were
no foreign powers to make protest, no
foreign press representatives to her
aid to tho world tho atrocities, tho tell
ing of which would bring upon Japan
tho contempt of all enlightened people.
Says tho Tainanfu representative of
the China Mail:
"As a result the policy of exter
mination has been zealously pursued
from the beginning of the campaign
and what with tho destruction of their
crops, tho burning of their villages,
the desecration of tho graves of their
loved ones, tho violation of their
wives and daughters and the butchery
of their innocent children, tho people

Mahpa, Tex,, Aug. 12. Sheriff
Knight has just received information
from Ojiniga, opposite Presidio, giving
an account of the robbery of the mail
between Chihuahua and Ojiniga, about
40 miles from Presidio, by a large band
of Mexican bandits and revolutionists.
The mail rider and a boy about 13 years
old, who were coming from Chihuahua,
wero taken prisoners and the mail sacks
burned. It is said the uprising
is 500 strong. Tho governor
of Chihuahua was notified by a ranch
,man and he has started 100 men in pur
suit of the bandits, but it is doubtful
whether they will fight or run. If
they run, it is naturally supposed they
will cross into Texas between Spencer's
ranch on this sido and tho settlement
of Ruidoba. The telegraph lines to
Chihuahua and to Juarez have been
cut and great excitement prevails at

Many Thrilling Escapes Number of Per
son! leaped From tbo Windows to the
Elevated Tracks and From There to
tho Ground Wrapped In Flame.
New York, Aug. 12. What at first
was reported as a most terribly disas
trous fire, broke out in tho big six
story building at Nos. 465, 4C7 and 409
Greenwich street, shortly after 2
o'clock Tuesday afternoon. Late Tues
day night it was pretty well proved
that not mora than five lives at the
most had been lo6t, if, indeed the num
ber of the dead would finally reach
that total. The financial loss was fixed
at something over 3100,000.
A. K. Warren & Co., electrical repair
shop, occupied tho major portion of
tho building, they having the first,
fourth, fifth and sixth floors. Julius
Cohen occupied the second with the
California Distilling Co. Over tho iloor
occupied by Cohen was tho firm of
Plaut it Co., jewelers. Other firms in
the building wero Alexander Finker
steln, .lohn Lnrney, candies', Kclsal !:
Co., canes; Samuel Flcischmann, glass;
Nelke & Co., lithographers, and James
Tho fire broke out in tho lower part
of the big building. The flames, how
ever, wcro first seen issuing from the
windows on the fourth floor. They
were preceded by an explosion of what
seemed to be a barrel of highwines or
something of an equally inflammable
nature. ThoEC who wero in a position
to know declared that it hardlysecmed
an instant before the entire structure
was enveloped in flames, and people
were scon at almost every window of
tho building. Numbers were seen to
leap from the windows to the tracks of
the elevated railroad and from there
to the ground with their clothing in a
Not for a long timo has a fire oc
curred in which there was so much of
tho tragic and horrible. Ono dead
body was removed from the firo escape
ufter it had lain there for hours in the
full view of a horror-stricken multi
tude. Three young men said they
had escaped to an adjoining room,
where they were attracted by
the figure of a man on the plat
form of tho fire escape on the
fourth floor. They ran back and
cutting a piece of telegraph wire threw
it over tho edge, hoping to aid him.
Hut the flames rose over the cornice,
and they wero compelled to leave him
to his fate. It seemed an age to the
crowd waiting below before the body
was taken down by the firemen and
laid on the pavement at Greenwich
and Dcsbrosses streets
Many other stories of horror were
told by the people who worked in the
buildings near at hand and witnessed
tho outbreak of the fire. One young
girl, it was said, was seen to approach
one of the w indows in the burning
structure. Before aid could reach her
she had fallen back into the seething
mass of flames waiting to swallow her
up. It was com nratively a short
time, considering tho fierceness with
which tho fire burned at first, but tho
building was cooled off sufficiently to
enable observations of the interior
to be made by tho firemen and some
estimate tho number of the dead could
bo arrived at. It was, however, short
ly before 8 o'clock boforo thu first bod
ies were recovered. They were those of
two men, supposed to bo those of Wm.
Gray, tho foreman of A, K. Warren it
Co., and J. Mueller, a mechanic in the
same establishment. Gray was tho
man who had perished on the fire es
cape. Tho firo which destroyed tho three
buildings at 405, 4G7 and 4f! Greenwich
street, proves not to be so fatal regard
ing tho loss of life as was supposed at a
lato hour Tuesday night. Tho number
of lives lost was three.
