Wild Scenes Caused by an Earth
quake in New York and Other
Women Shrieking:, Children Bawling:
and Men Both Braying: and
So Casualties, but the Greatest Scare and
Scenes of Confusion Witnessed for
New York, August 10. — About 2:05
o'clock this afternoon residents of this vi
cinity were startled by a severe shock of
earthquake lasting about ten seconds. At
this hour (6 p. m.) the particulars received
at the Wester Union ollice here show the
shock was widespread. The first reports
were received from the following points:
The Atlantic Highlands, near Sandy Hook,
Long Branch, Philadelphia, New Haven,
Boston, Elizabeth, Plainfleld, Spring Lake,
Cottage City, Martha's Vineyard, and Port
land, Maine. At the last point it was slight.
Reports were also received from many of the
sub-offices about New York.
Reports as toils duration are diverse, but
tin- average seems to be about ten seconds.
The operator at Providence was vaguely
questioned as to whether he had heard or
seen anything unusual, and he promptly re
plied he had had his hand on the steam pipe
ami that it had trembled violently. He had
been looking up and down tiie street to dis
cover the heavy team, which up to the time
of inquiry he supposed was passing. The
question made him suspicious of an earth
quake. This suspicion was promptly confirmed
by various people rushing into the street and
Bflßce, asking for an explanation. At 2:15
O'clock the Atlantic Highlands experienced

bricks on the boards were shaken off and

was reported from Seabright, N. V., where
the depot was .shifted to one side, shaking up

At 2:30 p. in. an Ineffectual effort was
made to raise the Long Branch office, which

AT CONST ISLAND.
The telegraph manager at Coney Island
promptly ;;sk"d for particulars of the ex
plosion supposing some oil refinery, powder
mill or dynamite factory had blown up. A
few minutes later, however, the fact became

thoroughly shaken by vibration anil that the

tlie shock was plainly hut slightly felt. In
the main local telegraph office the hundred
people present felt a serious movement of
their Boor in the seventh story, but there was
no electrical phenomenoL with it, and no
[he first impression which seemed to take
possession of the inmates ot the houses in
\ v fork, was that the building was about t<>
fall, a_d the people ran into the
streets only to discover their neighbors rush
ing out, amazed like themselves. Then as
there were no evidences of a catastrophe the
people returned to their homes, realizing
th re had been an earthquake. As a rule
the people n rnatned in trout of their houses
a few minutes, apparently trying to get at
tome solution ot their (ears, and watching
the facesand manner of others. The women
and children, a- they regained some decree
ot confidence, returned to tlie houses. Tlie
men remained in groups on the streets d;.-
cu-sing the occurrence so unexpected aad so
startling. An earthquake is a thing so un
locked forln this part of the world that the
cause and history of the most terrible oues
became a topic of paramount interest.
Above all the people were eonnenied in try
ing to find out from those they talked with,
whether a second and perhaps subsequent
ibocks were likely to follow. At the observ

time of the earthquake and its duration were

the shock was entirely impsjrceptible on the
AT POLICE HEADQUARTERS.
Immediately after the shock had been felt
at the police central office, considerable con
fiuAm was occasioned, and the impression
at iir*t urevailed that a violent explosion had
occurred in the neighborhood. A little in
vestigation, however, led Acting Superin
tendent Sanders to the conclusion that
the cause of the disturbance was a real
earthquake. He at once sent out a general
dispatch to all precincts, asking for infor
mation regarding the shock in the city.
Answers soon began to pour in,
the operators were kept busy for two hours
writing out reports from different captains.
It appears the shook was felt with about the
same intensity all over the city, although it
produced more alarm in thickly settled tene
ment districts on the east side. A telegram
from the Yonkers police said the shock had
been felt there also.
THE GREATEST EXCITEMENT
Prevailed ln the Jewish and Bohemian quar
ters on the east side. The houses, which are
mostly high and lightly constructed tene
ments, were violently shaken, and the ter
rified inmates rushed out into the
street carrying with them what
ever of their household effects
they could move. Children screaming with
fright were borne out by their parents, who
were hardly less panic stricken, and while
the population was was soon massed in the
center of Ludlow street, between Hester and
Canal, the panic was at its height. The
k streets were swarming with people. Men,
women and children were huddled together,
evidently thinking the last hour had arrived,
and expecting every moment to see the walls
of their dwellings fall upon them.
Women were shrieking aud children
bawling, while the men were either swearing
or praying. This was kept up for nearly half
an hour, when the commotion finally sub
sided and the police pursuaded the people to
return to their houses. Similar scenes were
witnessed in Mulberry, Jersey and Mott
streets, where the Italians have their colo
nies. The fright, however, was not so in
tense, and after a little thier loud shouts and
wild gesticulations, ceased. A few minutes
after the shock a gray-haired man rushed
into the Madison street police
station and shouted that several
houses in Monroe street had tumbled down.
Ambulances were called and a reserve force
sent out by the sargeant. On arriving at
the place indicated, they found the street in
front of a large tenement was crowded with
an excited throng of people, but there was no
indication of any accident. The panic was
caused by an excited man, who rushed
out into the streets shouting, "The
house is falling!" Many other instances of
a similar character were reported in the ten
ement house district, but as far as can be
ascertained no damage was anywhere done.
In many houses
DOOR BELLS -WERE SET JINGLING
by the shock. Its cause was the matter of
much speculation, especially among the
more ignorant classes, and it was a long
time before many understood the real na
ture of the occurrence.
The shock was more severe than in sur
rounding region. There were large crowds
on the mall who were thrown into a state of
violent excitement by the strange rumbling
in the ground, which was distinctly heard.
The animals in the menagerie were fright
ened by the shock and many of them were
seen to tremble as if iv fear, while they re
mained perfectly still for some time after it
Operator Hoffman, at the arsenal, was
thrown from his chair, but was not hurt.
The globes of the lamps in his office were
cracked. The ceilings of the tenth precinct
station house were badly cracked, and a
frame Douse, No. 137 Lewis street, was
cracked iv several places, and one of the
women who lived in the house became un
conscious from fright.
A street ear in avenue B was lifted from
the track several times, and several houses
are reported thrown down. At the drug
store, 90th street and Tenth avenue, several
bottles were thrown from the shelves. Po
licemen on the
Report the shock was distinctly felt there,
ami the great towers at either end oscilatcd
visibly, while the bridge itslf rocked. The
shock of the earthquake was felt generally
along the river front, and the piers were
shaken as if by heavily loaded trucks passing
over them. At the iron steamboat pier, a
structure of soiid masonry, the motion was
so violent the ticket takers rushed from their
offices to ascertain the cause.
AT CONEY ISLAND.
Late this afternoon boats brought back
crowds from Coney Island. There the shock
seemed to be much more violent than in the
city. The piazzas and the dining rooms of
the great hotels were well filled when the
rumbling noise was heard, followed by a
roc km? of the ground, which made the win
dows rattle and shook dishes aud wine
glasses from the tables. There was
a general rush for the open air, and for some
time great excitement prevailed. At the
new pier there was a similar shock, aDd even
the chairs rattled about. There was a gen
eral rush toward the main entrance, the peo
ple being under the impression that the
structure was giving way. As the shocks
did not recur the apprehensions ou this
score were soou allayed.
The earthquake was felt very generally
throughout the city. Along the river front
aud iv the eastern district the shock appears
to have been heavier and of longer duration.
Everywhere people abandoned their houses
some in terror, others to learn of the calam
ity that had befallen their neighbors. At
Greenpoint the people started upon a ruu for
the immense oil works on the shore of New
town creek, thinkiug an explosion had oc
curred there, while the fire companies har
nessed their horses to respond to an alarm
which they thought was soou to follow. The
sensation experienced on board receiving
ship Vermont, of the Brooklyu navy,
yard was similar to those felt when broad
sides are discharged from the ship at some
distance. according to the story of one sailor.
There was a distinctly felt jar, noticed by all
ou board. Persons traveling in the street
cars felt the vibration, and in many instances
the wheels of the car seemed to leave the
track, producing the same effect as when
they pass over a loose switch.
Tlie bell of the Presbyterian church in
Greenpoiut swayed back and forth and rang
several times loud enough to be heard by all
the people living in the neighborhood.
Among other evidences of the violence of
the agitation in Brooklyn may be mentioned
lhe stopping of eliK-ks, throwing down of a
high pile of brick, swinging of lamps and
pictures, and the like. Many Sunday schools
were in session at the time, and the teachers
had in some instances great difficulty in al
laying the terror of the children and prevent
ing a panic.
From the rgports received at Long Island
it appears the earthquake visited that
region in greater severity than the city.
Along the Atlantic coast of Long Island the
sbix-k was very violent, and the vibrations
mcd to increase in power as they traveled
eastward. In Jamaica the vibrations lasted
ten seconds, and the chimneys on several
house? toppled over. No serious damage,
however, is reported from any place. In
Long Island City, Flushing. White Stone
and College Point the trembling of ground
was distiuetly felt, and shaking of houses
perceptibly. Two hundred and fifty guests
at Long Beach hotel ran from the dining
rix>r.i to the beach and refused to return to
the building for some time, fearing a recur
rence of the shock.
The amount of alarm by the earthquake
everywhere was simply astounding, and was
the then e of discourse far into the night.
Preachers in many churches discoursed upon
the subject. People prayed who never
prayed before, and those who may have
prayed before oniy prayed the more. Pious
Orthotic women took their beads aud recited
a "pate and aye,'" while the men of the
faith made the sign of the cross. Everybody
confessed being possessed of a very peculiar
feeling during and immediately after the
shock, and few there were
who envied the position of
i the occupants of ten story fiats. There
t were many thanksgivings at Vesper services
ST. PAUL, MINN., MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 11,1884..
that the present visitation was not more se
rious, and prayers were offered that a recur
rence of the earthquake may not be attended
by a more serious disaster.
The reports from many parts of this state,
Connecticut, New Jersy aiid Pennsylvania,
show the shock was felt about as in this city,
and was attended with no more grave dam
age than trembling of chimneys or rattling
of dishes. Some women at different points
are said to have fainted, but no one as far as
known, died of fright.
A special to the Press from Macunzie says :
A shock of earthquake was felt here this af
ternoon. The German Reformed church
building, in which services were going on,
was shaken and rocked. A panic ensued
and the congregation fled precipitately. After
.the shock services were resumed, although
the congregation was much frightened.
Residents on the hills and highlands sur
rounding the city report that a slight shock
of earthquake was felt shortly after 2 o'clock
to-day, though in the city not perceptible.
Telegrams from Roekville, Montgomery
county, and Manchester, Frederick county,
report a slight shock felt.
The signal office reports no earthquake
disturbance here, nor in Baltimore. The vi
bration was very perceptible at Atlantic City,
New Jersey, and was also observable at the
Delaware breakwater, but to a less degree.
The signal station at the latter place is ou
the breakwater some distance from the shore.
Pittsburg, Aug. 10. — As far as heard
from, the. earthquake shock reported from
the east this afternoon was not felt in west
LATER FROM PHILADELPHIA.
Pittsburg, August 10. — For the first
time since January 8, 1817, a
very perceptible shock of earthquake was
felt in Philadelphia, at four minutes alter
two this afternoon. It was of about ten min
utes duration, and apparently extended from
the northern to the southwest, increasing in
intensity with each succeeding second, and
subsiding gradually. The strongest build
ings in the city were shaken, rickety
chimneys toppled over on roofs, and
bricks tumbled down upon the pavements in
all parts of the city. The plaster fell from the
ceilings of houses, chinaware rattled in
closets, door bells began ringing, glasses
clinked lively upon sideboards, and clocks
were set running down. In some instances
people were prostrated upon the floors of
their dwellings. Nervous people were fright
ened to such an extent that many thought
the destruction of the world
was at hand. Everywhere the
populace became excited. Every
house in the city was affected more or less,
their occupants running into the street,
thinking a terrible explosion had taken place.
A few moments later three-fourths of the
entire population were in the streets. Every
where men, women and children congregated
upon the sidewalks and street corners and
eagerly discussed the affair. This was more
noticeable in the thickly populated districts
of Kiusington and Southwork. Gradually the
impression that an earthquake had occurred
grow upon the citizens, aud each inquired "of
hi 6 neighbor if he had felt the shock. Many
timid people were scared. They hesitated
to reenter their houses, and did not do bo
until assured by stronger miuded neighbors
that a repetition of the remarkable event
was unlikely. In a short time after the ac
curance, people flocked from all parts of the
city to Chestnut street, and there
gathered around thejdifferent newspaper and
telegraph offices, etc., to ascertain news from
other parts of the city and surrounding
places. Shipping was likewise affected by
the shock. Large ships loading petroleum
iv the Schuylkill river snapped their hawsers
and were only prevented going ashore by the
united efforts of their crews. Several large
steamers were thrown strongly against the
wearves in the lower section of the city
and their crews thrown out of their
bunks. Huge waves, backed up by
the rising tide overflowed many wharves and
considerable property was flooded thereby.
Several instances where persons were watch
ing the river from the docks they found
themselves suddenly overtaken by huge
waves and were thoroughly soaked. Deeply
laden steamers lying in the Delaware trem
bled without apparent Injury during the ex
istence of the shock.
Chicago, Aug. 10 — The earthquake 6hock
which occurred in the east to-day was not
felt here or in this vicinity, and up to mid
night the associated press had received no
advices of any disturbance. It is not be
, licved that it was felt at any point in the

A Colorado Prize Fig-ht.
Denver, Col., Aug. 10. — An excursion
train this morning carried several hundred
people twenty miles south of Denver, where
a prize fight between Join P. Clow, of Den
ver, and George A. Morrisson, of Leadville,
took place for the championship of Colorado.
Both men were badly used up. At the end of
the sixth round one of the spectators
reach ed over the rope and struck Clow. This
started a general rough and tumble fight,,
thirty or forty men participating. The sheriff
had disarmed the crowd before leaving the
train, which probably prevented a terrible
fight. The sheriff and posse succeeded in
dragging th* combatants apan before any
serious injury wa£ done, meantime the ref
eree called time and decided in favor of
Narrowly Escaped Foundering.
Milwaukee. Aug. 10. — The three masted
schooner, H. W. Sage, the largest on the
lakes, narrowly escaped foundering off Point
Betsey, Lake Michigan, last Saturday. She
sprung a leak in Thursday's gale, having
opened up where she was damaged by going
ashore last season, and the crew manned
the pumps in vain. The steam barge Chaun
cey Hurlburt answered her signal of distress,
towed her here, and she went on to Chicago
with new men at the pumps, and one of her
sails over the leak.
Gas Well Purchases.
PiTTSBrRG, July 10. — George Westing
house, representing the Philadelphia Natural
Gas company, yesterday purchased a lease to
hold four-fifths of all the natural gas territory
in western Pennsylvania. The sale includes
the Butler and Tareantnm fields, and five
farms in the vicinity of Homewood, this city.
The purchase was made from and through J-
M. Guffey, and aggregate an area of 17,000
acres. Terms of sale withheld.

BEN BUTLER'S BRASS.
He Gives Massachusetts Democrats no
Credit for His Election as
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Boston, Aug. 10. — Gen. Butler was inter
viewed to-day about his impressions of last
night's Democratic rallies and his relations
with the state and national Democratic or
ganizations. He used a free lauce in his
most audacious style. "1 still live," he said,
"notwithstanding the meetings last night,
where the vice presidents who did not attend
crowded the people out."
"Did you attend?"
"Oh, no, my name was not permitted to
be mentioned there by any speaker, because,
1 suppase, that the people, having been ac
customed to cheering it, would have kept on.
If the name is such a terror, what woull
have been the effect if I had happened to te
there? But lam much pleased that the only
man who did mention it was a soldier who
swung his crutch — better in his mouth than
than in the mouth of somebody who sent
a substitute to the war. How history repeats
itself. In the old days of English rule in
Ireland it was a felony, without the benefit
of clergy, for any person in the night time
to shout 'Butler aboo' (Butler forever.) If
those who controlled the meetings last night
ever come into power, I will tell them where
they can find that old statute, so as to re
enact it that they may not. be troubled any
more with the old soldier and his crutch."
"Were you at the conference the other
"Oh, no, that was a conference of the rep
resentatives of the 'fifty-two' men who bojted
my candidature last fall. Knowing that I
was not to be there they for the first time
ventured out in force. I saw they com
plained that I had deserted the Democratic
party. There is no way of satisfying them.
The last time they complained it was that I
had captured the Democratic organization.
Be it so, I have only let my captives loose.
They seemed to think I owed a
debt of gratitude in some way
to the Democratic organization. How could
that be when they accused
me of committing - burglary to
capture it? Seriously, I owe a great debt of
gratitude to the people of Massachusetts, but
none to any Democratic organizatiou, state
or national. I bolted from the Republican
party and ran against it in 1878, and got
109,000 votes. I ran against the Republican
party with the aid of the regular Democratic
organization in 1879 and got
200 votes less. I paid my
own bills and none of that '52' subscribed
enough to pay for printing their ballots as
bolters. I advocated Hancock in 1880. I
paid my own bills again and received noth

Funeral of Serjeant Linn.
Phtladelphla, Aug. 10. — The funeral of
Sergeant David Linn, of the Second United
States cavalry, and a member of the Greely
arctic exploration expedition, took place this
afternoon from the residence of his mother.
After the services in the house the body was
taken to Mount Moriah cemetery, where the
interment took place. The services at the
cemetery comprised simply a prayer and
military salute. Many persons accompanied
the body to the cemetery.
Death of Chas. Tilden.
Locisv TLLE, Ky., Aug. 10. — Mr. Chas.
Tilden, one of the oldest and most promi
nent citizens of Louisville, president of the
Bank of LouisTiile, and president of the
board of managers of the Masonic widows
and orphans home, died suddenly at 11 :20
o'clock last night from neuralgia of the
stomach at his residence just out of the city.
Mr. Tilden was at the bank yesterday and
seemed well In the afternoon he
drove to his home on the Beardstown
road near the city, sad continued
apparently well until a few minutes before
11 o'clock, when he was attacked by violent
pains, and dying before the physician reached
him. Mr. Tilden had held many high posi
tions in the Masonic fraternity, and was at
one time grand master of the state. In ad
dition to his other business connections, he
was the treasurer of the Ohio Valley Cement
company. Deceased was born in Kent
county, Maryland, in November, 1810. He
came to Louisville when a very young man
and began his career as a bookkeeper.
Some of the Leading: Features of this
Louisville, Ky., Aug. 10. — One of the
new features of the southern exposition at
Louisville, Ky., will be a grand competitive
military drill to take place .August 26, 27 and
28. A level space, around which is a circle
of seats capable of seating 15,000 persons,
has been especially prepared for the drills. It
is known that a half dozen of the crack
companies or America will participate, and
the localities, merit and friendly rivalry will
lend unusual interest to the , occasion. The
first prize is 83,000, second $1,000, third
$500; certainly sums worth contending for.
The entire state guard of Kentucky will go
into encampment in honor of these great
drills, and it is estimated that fully 100,000
persons will witness them.
And the new feature is the introduction
of European fireworks furnished exclusively
for the southern exposition by James Paine,
of London, the recognized peer of all other
manufacturers of fire works. The conclud
ing device of the fire works display on the
night of August 21st, will be the Arc de
Triomphe, and Bois de Boulogne, (one hun
dred aud fifty feet in length), as exhibited
during the fetes of the Em
peror, and is said to be
the most successful device ever displayed in
Europe. The. famous device of the sacred
white elephant will be produced on the same
night on a grand scale. The large beast
will walk with natural and life like move

the working classes, on the politics of the
Prince of Wales. The writer says the Prince
of Wales has no belief in the policy of ef
facement of the empire, and will not shrink,
when necessary, from the assertion or ex
tension of the imperial responsibilities,
though opposed toaggresion. He is therefore
drawn to the radicals, who have broken from
the traditions of the Manchester peace party.
The article further asserts that the heir ap
parent to the throne of England is a free
trader iv principle, and regrets the existence
of the protection policy in other countries on
the ground that a hostile tariff will beget
other forms of international hostility. He
considers that many of the ideas and plans
now identified with socialism, are
thoroughly practical, Christian and
constitutional. Respecting the forms of gov
ernment, he accepts the pope's dictum, that
what is best administered is the best consti
tutional monarchy, and is the most econom
ical form of government, because it keeps a
check upon individual ambition, extrava
gance and jobbery. The Republican idea in
the abstract is very fascinating, in practice,
delusive aDd costly through waste, and
unstable, especially in its foreigu policy,
which should be permeated by a fixed prin
ciple, common to all parties of state. The
prince believes the English monarchy will
endure, because it is the nucleus of a real
republic, and having what other republics
need, the centre of gravity apart from all
yet allied to all.
These Are "Protected" Industries.
Pittsbuho, Aug. 10. — A circular from G.
H. Hall & Co., Louisville, asking pig iron
men to join in a movement to bank up all
furnaces of the country for four weeks, in
order, if possible, to increase the price by
restriction of production, received here.
The conditions on which the plan of banking
the furnaces will be carried into effect are
that unless two-thirds of those now in the
blast agree to it, and those out agree to re
main out, the plan is not to be enforced.
The dates fixed for the shut down are be
tween September first and November first.
The project meets with favor with many fur
nace men of this city.
The steamer Jack Gumbert, chartered by
the striking coal miners of the first, second
and third polls, starts from Elizabeth to
morrow for the fourth pool. Several hundred
miners, with provisions to last a week, will
accompany the boat and endeavor to per
suade the working miners to come out for
the district price.
How Ke Lum? Was Captured.
London, Aug. 10. — Later details of the
capture of Ke Lung by the French say the
town was given up without a blow. Directly
the cannon from Admiral Lesper's flagship
gave the signal the men landed from the
various ships and the town was taken posses
sion of in the name of France. The authori
ties of the town and majority of the popula
lion fled. Four thousand Chinese troops,
recently arrived from Shanghai, retired into
the interior. The British vise counsel went
on board an English gunboat, having
previously sent a protest to Admiral Lespers
against the French occupation, and pointing
out that Ke Lung was protected under a
treaty with England. The French upon
landing seized many junks and embargoed
several steamers hailing from Shanghai, on
the ground that their papers were irregular.
Admiral Lespers has issued a proclamation
to the inhabitants declaring their lives and
property safe under the French flag. Ad
miral Corbet will attack Foo Chow Tuesday
next, unless the French indemnity proposals

THE PROUD MAN.
A CHARACTER SKETCH!
What has a proud man to do with the clothing
business? Generally very littie, as proud men,
as a rule, are too conceited to patronize a clothing
store, but pay exorbitant prices for "made-to
order goods," when if they were less blind to
their own interest they would do as the largest
portion of the best-dressed men in St. Paul are
doing, viz., patronize '-THE BOSTON." •
Our "Red Figure Sale" is, as usual, a success,
our many bargains attracting hosts of customers.
It looks now as though we should not have to
pack away a summer suit. This is just what wa
want, and is the sole reason for our "Red Figure
Sale," to clear out our summer stock, if low
prices will do it.
