Santiago, Chili, March 16. The bom
bardment of Pisagua by the revotutior ary
fleet w ill stand in history as one of the
most terrible ever suffered by a seaport.
Xhe commandant of Pisagua received an
officer o! the insurgent's cruiser Earner

The Esmeralda was then joined by the
Ulaiico, and at 1') a. m. a terrible boni
lianimi'nt began, the two cruisers k sep
ia up aa almost ceaseless fire for air tost
six hours. The Blanco's fire was mcstly
gripe and did terrible execution. A per
fect shower of shot and shell fell upon the
tovrn. On every side men and wo nen
were running wildly about. Mea tram

mad endeavors to seet safety in the up

about trying for their mothers and more
thin one was felled to the ground by the
Tin- Very Dcid Kid.lled with Shol.
U Unu n seeking a place of safety wera
s,cu to throw up their hands, stagger, and
fall dead. Dead bodies riddled with shot
lay everywhere. In three hour the lower

The batteries on the hilis kept up a con
stant but not very effective fire. About 2
p. m. the two cruisers moved in more
toward the town, and began shelling the
heights Then there was a rush for the
Nothing but Rnins and Corpse.
Like a herd of wild steers that were
anipeiled the people ran. Mothers
struggled with men and fought like
tigers. Children and babes were smoth
ered or crushed to death in the mad rush,
snd all the time the pitiless guns were
sending their shower of grape. At times
twenty or thirty people would go down at
a single volley, ome would rise and
keep on running with blood streaming
from their wounds and finally sink to the
ground exhausted from the loss of Hood
only to be torn and mangled by the con
stant hail of grape shot. When the fire
from the cruisers ceased about 4 p. m.
two-thirds of the town was destroyed and
nothing remained of Pisaqua but a mass
of ruins. From the ruins of one building
seventy-two bodies were taken out. The
number of dead has as yet not been ascer

PARNELL RUNS FROM REPORTERS.
He Makes an Appointment Which He
Takes Care 'ot to Keep.
Londok, March -6. Parnell cut a most
undignified figure Saturday in his deter
mined efforts to avoid the newspaper men
who desired to interview him in regard to
Healy's allegations that he was speeding
Li time in private enjoyment while mat
ters c.f vital importance to Ireland were
being discussed and acted upon in the
hou-e of commons. Parnell was knova to
le in tha library of the house, and at least
thirty reporters sent in their cards during
the evening, without being vouchsafed any
response; but finally their persistence was
rewarded by a promise that Parnell would
see them at a particular spot at a cr ;tain
Instead He Cot and Run.
While the attention of the reporters waa
was thus diverted for the time being,
Parnell summoned an attendant to his
aid, and wa guided to the ladies, stair
case, where he eluded the would be inter
viewers watc iing for him inside and out
side the building, and escaped to the
street. It was raining heavily and Par
nell was obliged to run quite a distance
through the storm to catch a cab. He got
a good wetting, but succeeded in iiot
facing the reporters. The press generally
express disgust at Parnell's secret tactics
and thinly disguised mysteriousness.
Disclaimed by the Leader.
While at Gal way Parnell was .-isked
about the above and said that is was
totally false. lie also took occasion to
deny that he had been at Brighton with
Mrs. O'Shea last week while Irish ques
tions were up in the house, or at any
other time. He was absent from the
bouse when the debate on the Irish relief
fnnd was "on" but it was a matter tbit
did not need his voice or labor. McCarthy
took no part in the debate, and Sexton,
Healy and all Parnell's chief opponents
were likewise absent from the house on
the night in question.
Parnell Speaks in Galway.
Parnell had an enthusiastic reception in
Galway yesterday. To prevent him from
being saluted by a band which had made
all preparations to receive him with blare
"f trumpets and beat of drum, the Mc
Carthyites broke into the band room at
Cloyne and stole the instrument. In his
speech Parnell said that Ireland was in
much the same position as in lfe!W, when
the unreasonable clement in the party op
posed him because he supported th'i gov
ernment railway measures. He believed
then in getting all the money he could
for Ireland, ;;ud acted on the belief. Par
nell severely criticised the ecclesiastical
iiuthorities lor their attempt to take the
direction of Irish affairs out of the hands
of the people, and he denounced what he
called ULidstoue's effort to dictate lx Ire
land. Death of Dr. Wlnltliort.

Mount Pleasant, Mich., March 16
The small station of Wise, eleven miles
north of here, was the scene of a terrible
crime and a futile attempt to hide it Sat
urdny morning. Dennis Burns, a labor
ing man, occupies a small cottage on the
border of the village with his wife and
three children, the eldest of which was a
girl of eight years. Burns left home
eirlyin the morning, and Mrs. Burns,
needing a pail of water, went for it to a
neighbor's well, leaving the children in
bed. She stood chatting at the well with
a neighbor until her attention was
called to her house by smoke pouring
from the door.
An Atrocious Crime Committed.
She rushed home, her steps accelerated
by the screams of the children and tbe
bursting of flames from the first-story
windows. Without stopping to count the
risk she dashed into the flame-filled house
and seized the two youngest children
from the crib, anil, hastily quenching (he
flames, attempted to get the elder one orfc.
Help arrived and the eldest one was
dragged out horribly burned, but i-he
lived long enough to tell her mother that
a big man had entered the house and.
after feloniously assaulting her, had set
fire to the bod-clothing with matches and
run out the back door.
Diabolism Almost Unparalleled.
The second child corroborated the elder,
and the doctor's examination proved it
beyond a doubt. The fiend had evidently
calculated to cremate the three children,
and thus destroy all traces of bis crime, as
it would have been nrtural to suppose
that tbe children set themselves on fire.
There is absolutely no clew to the miscre
ant, as the children, one 3 and tho other 5,
cannot give a good description of him.
The sheriff of Isabella county is s -arching
for clues, and there will be a lynching
party if he is caught.

declined to make a statement and re
fused to be baptized, dy4ng unrepentant
lie Well Deserved His Fate.
The crime for which Crawford was
hanged was the murder of Mrs. Liua

her in some way to accompany him to a
louely field and there cut her throat.

after making an attempt to kill himself,
confessed that he had killed Mrs. Matthias,
ay ing that he loved her. He expressed
willingness to die for his crime.
