night's disaster presented no feature yester
day calculated to lessen its horror, and tha
vast pile of broken rock, demolished houses,
and dtthri of all sort, stretching out for

devastation. Willing Latvia were not want

rookslide. The fire and police departmenta,
reinforced by the officers and men of tba
Royal school of cavalry, labored vigorously
tbmelves In the work, as well as directing
tba labors of a large force of men. In view
of tbe tremendous amount of rock mingled
with tbe ruins tbe progress was very slow,
and the Wreckage has lieen largely increased
since the first slide by falling fragments of
Katcaed from the Wreck.
Four more persons were rescued yesterday
morning They were Mrs. Mary Caldwell,
Thomas Kerrigan, a boy named Berrigan,
and Mrs. Klack. All were severely bruise-i

THE SCENE OF DESTRUCTION.
Desniiptloft of the Work of the Landslide
It was not until morning dawned yester
day that the full extent and nature of tbe
landsJiiie calamity became apparent. Tbe
rupture of tbe electric light wires extin
guished the lamps in the vicinity, the disas
ter having occurred about an boar after
nightfall. A howling tempest throughout
the night that washed into fury tbe water of
the river, with a thick intermittent rain,
went to make up one of toe most dismal ot
times. Locomotion through the afflicted dis
trict was impossible without the aid of
torches, and was even then exceedingly diffi
cult. The one street that winds around tbe
base of the citadel was piled with millions of
cubic feet of rock of all siiws, some nearly as
large aa a bnuaA.
Might Have Occurred Long Ago.
When daylight came the enormous cavity
from which the destroying avalanclte had
fallen, startled everybody. It bad left a
plain, smooth surface behind it, showing
that a very visible section of the rock
might nave bean detached long ago bad tbe
ti vity m 4maS2i2, jrer-
under the foundation wall ot tbe southeast
corner of the terrace. This part of Quebec's
ravoriM resort bas been closed to the rublie.
and apparently not a day too soon, as a large

piatrorro. la other neighboring masses of
overbsngmg rock large seams also exist, and
men who worked all night under tbe shadow
of the tureat'jning evil sbnddered yesterday
morning ai me nrstsigntoC the danger which
had overhung them.
Plenty of Time to (let A war.
George II ay den waa standing near Berri
gan s door for some time before the fatal
rock descended. "It is useless for us to deny,"
be said last evening, "that we had ample
warning given us of the disaster. I was
standing talking to poor Nolan and Farrell,
who are now dead, and with Perry, when
portions of tbe rock fell at intervals of
about five minutes, first in small quantities,
then more profusely. After the second slide
occurred I said it was time for us to move,
and managed to get away. Nolan might
hare dime tbe same, but ran into bis bouse
to call his wife."
Hotee of the Diaaator.
It is thought tbat tha King's bastion of
the citadel will have to be removed, as it is
now too near tbe edge of tba rock, with un

Detroit, Sept. 2L Seven hundred panio-

Detroit passed through a period of peril
Thursday night whiO they will never for

terror as the water poured through openings
in tbe ship and rose with fearful rapidity,
and all tied on life-preservers in anticipation
of a desperate battle for life in the angry
waters. When the boat left Cleveland for
this xrt Thursday evening there w as but
little sign of tbe terrible storm raging over
Attack of the Mad Waters.
No sooner had tbe boat passed the break
water than she was struck on the port side
by a heavy wave that fairly lifted the great
cra't out of water. A moment later one of
the windows on the port side of the main
deck was battered in bv the antrrv waters.
and the paddktbox bulkheads bad begun to
spring and a small stream oosed in around

later, a scene of terror followed
The IVrka Flooded.
Tbe water was forced into the boat with
every motion of the paddles, and rose rapid
ly in the after saloon on tbe main deck. The
officers' apartments and tbe ladies' saloon
was quickly flooded. Very soon after this
tbe starboard paddlebox gave way, and the
hetgbt of tbe water increased materially. AI
though holes were cut in the gunwales to
let tbe stream run oat, it was impossible to
stay on tbe main deck. The water rone un

swept back into the after cabin in a solid

During tbis terrible situation the passen
gers were cluktored in tbe saloon panic
stricken. One man rushed up and down the
cabin shouting at tbe top of bis voice: "We
are lost; tbe boat is sinking." This made
the passengers even more terrified, ami tbe
officers of the boat were finally compelled to
oonnne tbe excited man. Tbe male passen
gers seemed to be more frightened than tbe
women, but many of the latter lay about in
swoons on tiie cabin floor.

time when the water would reach the fires,
and we would be at tbe mercy of tbe storm.
Tbe boat plunged and groaned horribly , and
one passenger, a large man, went crazy with
fear, and ran hither and thither yelling, and

Every One for Himself.
"Every man and woman had on a life-preserver,
and in some cases persons would put
on two or three of them. Many of the pas
sengers lost all self posa.-wi.Hi, and did noth
ing but walk up and down tbe cabin, sobbing
and crying. Every one seemed looking out
for himself, and gave no thought to his
neighbor, except in isolated cases, where twe
persona might be seen in each other s arms,
with their faces blanched with fear. Tbe
officers did sll they could to quiet the pas
sengers, and if they were themselves afraid
tbey did not show it much beyond set lips.

of his trip. He said: "The boat's crew be-

An enormous pressure ia being brought to

is determined tbat Maj. Warner shall ac
cept tbe position. Thursday night he re
