MESSINA STRAIT DESTROYED

AND BOATS IN HAEBOE
All Nations Extend Condolences and
Offers of Assistance to Stricken
Cities Eye Witnesses Tell Terrible
Stories of Death and Suffering.
ROME, Decombor 29. Tho govern
ment is' sending troops with tho utmost
dispatch by land and sea to tho sceno
of the earthquako disaster. Tour thous
and men frem tho garrison at Homo al
ready aro on tho way. Tribuna pub
lishes an interview with a refugee who
mado his way into Monteleonc, in Cala
bria, who says the entire country side
is crowded with victims of desolation.
Those who escaped death, many of
whom arc badly wounded, are making
their way by thousands to tho nearest
place of refuge. Their sufferings even
now must be intense, ns they aro with
out food or .clothing.
Stunned at tho magnitudo of the
calamity which has overtaken their fel
low countrymen, all Italy mourn to
night for tho stricken province of Cala
bria and tho Island of Sicily. Accus
tomed for centuries to earthquakes,
Italy stands over in dread, bu none
was .prepared for the disaster which in
a fraction of a minute yesterday de
vastated cities and towns and caused
the death of thousands.
Messina, whoso tragic history has
been marked by tidal waves and war,
and which was tho center of yester
day's terrestrial maelstrom, was
shaken to ruins.
Flashes of lightning burst forth to
complete tho city's destruction nnd to
turn alivo untold numbers helplessly
pinioned boncath fallen walls and
broken timbers. Tho strait of Messina
was shaken and twisted by tho trem
bling, for tho mariners report the chan
nel to bo altered beyond recognition.
Ports nnd villages on both tho conti
nental and Sicilian sides were wrecked
and inundated and nil lighthouses along
the coast were swallowed up. Naviga
tion now is dangerous and in somo
places impossible, In the Calabrian dis
trict, which was only beginning to ro-
cover from the effects of the earthquake
of 1905, Rcggio was the eenter of the
The seaport of Rcggio is reported as
uo longer existing and tho city proper
is in ruins. Tho loss of life on both
sides of the strait and in eastern Sicily
Ono of tho refugees from Kcggio,
who was tho first to bring tho news of
tho city's destruction, tried to make his
way to Sicily in a sailboat, but was
compelled to return and finally found
safety at a peninsular port. I ndescrib
ing his experience he said:
"Tho sea was strangely, mysterious
ly agitated and tho heavens wero
ablaze. Ncaring Sicily tho clearing
smoko revealed mystery Messina was
in flames. In a frenzy of despair, I
turned my boat back to Calabria."
Starving, bleeding from injuries, and
almost insane from their terrific experi
ences, Messina's survivors are fleeing
in all directions. Tho spectacle pre
sented by the mined seaport is de
scribed as terrifying. Tumbling build
ings' both killed and mutilated many,
whilo hundreds of tho injured, imprison
ed in wreckage, wero abandoned to
thoir fato by the fleeing population.
Ono of these who escaped, said:
"Tho earth seemed suddenly to drop
and then turn violently on its axis. Tho
whole populace, who wero prccipitatod
from their houses when they were rent
in twain, wero spun, around like tops as
they ran through tho streets. Many
fell crushed to death, and others, be
wildered, took rcfugo besido tottering
walls, where they soon met tho fato
of thoir companions."
Already British and Russian squad
rons have arrived at Messina. Sailors
and marines havo been disembarked
and they havo performed courageous
acts in rescuing tho injured nnd remov
ing tho wounded. Alargo number of
survivors Jjas cfortr'ansfcrrednto the
warships, which are transformed into
great floating hospitals. Steamers with
doctors, druggists, firemen nnd work
Catania and other placos.
Special dispatches received hero from
Calabria confirm tho destruction of Reg
gio. They roport the situation there is as
bad, if not worso, than at Messina.
Tho hands of all nations havo been
extended to Italy in hor affliction. From
tho rulors havo come messages of con.
dolcnco a8d from the peoplo spontane
ous promises of aid which brings tho
world closor togethor in tiuio of cnlam
ity. Great Britain, Franco and Russia sent
warships ds quick as the flash of tele
graph could carry orders to lend assist
ance to tho stricken cities. Relief funds
havo already been started and hundreds
of ships nnd trains are on their way
carrying supplies and reiuforcomonts
td tho south. Romo, Milan, Florence,
Naples and othor cities are sending
physicians, polico and firemen.
Bourses and tho theaters havo been
closed throughout Italy aud dispatches
of sympathy continuo to pour in from
all quarters of tho globe. At tho time
of tho earthquake the torpedo boat
Sappho was lying in tho harbor at Mes
sina and one of her officers told of tho
Occurrenco vis follows:
"At half past fivo in the morning,
the sea suddenly became terribly agi
tated, seeming literally to pick our boat
up and shako it. Other craft nearby
wero similarly treated and tho ships
looked like bits of cork hobbling about
in a tempest. Almost immediately a
tidal wave of hugo proportions swept
across the straits, mounting tho coasts
nnd carrying everything beforo it.
Scores of ships wero damaged and tho
Hungarian mail boat Andrassy parted
anchors and went crashing into other
vessels. Messina bay was wiped out
and tho sea was soon covered with
masses of wreckage, which was car
ried off in th6 arms of the receding
Eight sailors from tho Sappho wero
landed and took up the work of rcsuce.
Officers and men from Italian and Brit
ish steamers also went ashoro ns soon
ns possible, the Britishers saving a fam
ily of fivo who wpro imprisoned in a
burning house. Many of the prisoners
from the jail mndo their escape and
looted right and left. Hundreds aro en
gaged in tho work of robbing banks
and business houses. In the opinion of
tho officers of tho Sappho, half tho pop
ulation of Messina perished.
King Victor Emmanuel and tho
queen, who left for tho scene of the
calamity, reached Naples tonight and
proceeded at once to Sicily.

the grand jury on a chargo of counter

plices, who were arrested in Cochise
county for coining bogus $20 gold
pieces, wero tried at tho last term of
court at Tombstono and each drew two
years in the territorial penitentiary. It
appeared that tho only connection which
Neaman had with the affair was that ho
had agreed to arrange a place in which
tho operations of tho counterfeiters
could be carried on in this vicinity. He
had selected an old tunnel north of
town in a Bccludcd spot in which ho
thought tho coiners of bogus money
would bo safe from tho vigilance of tho
law. Neaman win arraigned yesterday

tenco to begin from August 1, 1908, the

Tho caso of Cclso Cabrarft, who was
charged with having taken n letter
from tho postoffico at Clifton which
did not belong to him, was passed over
to tho next grand jury on account of
the Graham county authorities having
failed to forward tho necessary papers
in the case. Cnbrara was roleased on
his own recognizance.
Harry Woods and Mina Bond, who
