San Salvador. Sept. 10. Millions of j
dollars worth of property and many lives
were imperiled in this lepublic by an
earthquake yesterday. Whole towus were
wiped out, and, so far as advices re
ceived here indicate, hardly a city ia the
country, except those along the coast, es
caped the awful effects of the convulsion.
There have been indications for several
days past a that seismic disturbance of
more than usual violence might be ex
pected. The volcanoes of Sau Salvador,
San Miguel and Isalco have been unusu
ally active, and deep subterrauean rum
blings and slight earth tremors have been
Fled to the Open Country.
Such things are not uncommon here,
however, and while there was a feeling of
uneasiness in this city Tuesday night '
there was no great alarm. At just five
minutes before 2 o'clock yesterday niorn
the earth began to shake. The wave had
a strong vertical aud oscillatory move
ment. People rushed iuto the streets in
their night clothing, and while the shock
lasted only twenty seconds, before it had
passed away there was a panic-stricken
mob making its way to the open country
outside of the city.
Dreadful Scene of Panic.
The scene wa3 terrible. Men, women,
aud children were shrieking and praying
in the streets, walls of houses cracked,
tottered and fell; there was a deep, con
tinuous rumbling as if of heavy thunder;
t he sky was overcast, and the air was filled
with a fine, penetrating dust. While the
shock lasted the earth rose and fell in loug
waves, and men were unable to keep their
feet. The panic-stricken people flocked
to the open ground outside of the city.
Temporary shelters were thrown up
whereverpossible, but nearly all the men
and a great many of the women aud chil
dren had only the sky for a cover.
The Populace Camped Out.
All through yesterday morning there
were slight shocks, but none approaching
in intensity that which was so destruc
tive. The inhabitants are afraid to re
turn to their houses, and are making
themselves as comfortable as possible in
their temporary camps until the commo
tion subsides. President Ezeta is doing
everything he can to stop the panic and
care for tbe homeless people until it is
considered safe for them to go back to
Six Towns Shaken to Pieces.
The towns throughout the country have
suffered more than the capital even.
Analquito and Comasogua have been com
pletely destroyed, Cojutepeque, Santa
Tecla, San Pedro and Masahuet were so
badly shaken that they are practically
ruined, while the shock was plainly felt
and damage was done by it at Santa Ana
and Susimtepeque, fully sixty miles from
Only, Two Known Fatalities.
It is impossible at this writing to form
any idea as to the number of lives which
have been lost. Two people were killed
here, though there were many miraculous
escapes from death. It is feared, however,
that there haue been people killed in the
smaller towns. The loss of property will
run well into the millions. This is tbe
third time within less than forty years
that San Salvador has been visited by
The Disasters of '84 and '73.
In April, not a single house was
left in the city fit for habitation, and over
300 lives were lost. Tbe dust and debris
from the falling buddings filled up all
the wells and drinking plaes. Again
in March, 1373, the city was shaken
to the ground. Over 45,000,000 worth
of property was destroyed then,
and upward of fifty lives were lost. So it
seems that destructive seismic disturb
ances visit the country at intervals of
TRIPLE TRAGEDY IN GEORGIA.
Friends from Childhood Engage in Fa
tal "Gun Play."
SAVANKAH, Ga., Sept. 10. A terrible
tragedy occurred at Pembrooke, in Bryan
county, Tuesday, ia which three young
men were mortally wounded, two of whom
were the sons of Hon. J. B. Erown, ex
ordinary of Bryan connty, and the other
Mr. P. H. Patrick, a highly respectable
young man. Tbetrouble arose about a
armll settlement between the parties,
tfjilch brought about a dispute bet ween
tffe young Browns and Patrick. Tjtiey
came to blows, and the youngest of the
Ilrotfns interfered, trying to separate the
9 he Ready Revolver in Action.
Patrick, mistaking his motive, drew a
pistol aud shot him. Then all three drew
pistols and began to shoot. When they
had emptied their pistols, fifteen shots be
ing fired, there lay on the ground three
young men w'.io had been Iriends from
childhood up to the time of this horrible
tragedy. The physician iu attendance
soon after the allair occurred gave it as
his opinion that ail the parties would die.

THE DEATH OF MAJOR BUNDV.
A Man Who Made His Mark Both East
New York, Sept 10 A cablegram from
Minister Reid at Paris announces the
death of Major Jonas A. Bundy. Major
Bundy was one of the western journalists
who have made their mark and place in
the metropolis. Born in New Hampshire,
bis family moved to Beloit, Wis., when
be was but a child. There he was edu
cated, graduated from college and studied
law with Matt H. Carpenter, of Milwau
kee, and completed the legal course at
Harvard. He published in 1860 a pam
plet defending the national power of the
federal government as against the Cal
bounistic "state rights" views held by bis
own party. This pamphlet was so effect
ive as to prevent the election of a chief
justice and saved the state fron being
committed in 1850-61 to the doctrines on
which South Carolina seceded.
Hound To 15 e a Journalist.
With an irrepressible tendency to news
paper work he obtained a reportorial po
sition on The Evening Wisconsin, aud
afterward rose to the editorship of The
Milwaukee Seutinel. After nearly five
years' army service he went to Xew York,
spent two years ou the editorial staff of
the Xew York Evening Post, and in 1808
accepted the position of editor of The
Evening Mail, which he had retained
since, ami admirably managed through
its consolidation with the Express. The
mj;r'a powerful attacks on the Tweed
ring iu Xew York caused his appoint
ment as a member of the committee of
seventy who ruled the city until its gov
ernment was reorganized.
. DISREPUTABLE MATRIMONY.
An Alabama Couple Who Practice Free
Love Under the Form of Law.
AXMbTOX, Ala., Sept. 10. Mr. and Mrs.
John Dickson, after living together a
couple of years, obtained a divorce. A
few mouths later John married a young
and fascinating widow. Mrs. Dickson
followed suit with a widower, aud ia two
weeks she was Mrs. Thompson. Mrs.
Dickson Xo. 2 lived only a year or so, and
after her death Dickson made overtures to
his former wife, who deserted her second
husband and came to Alabama and settled
with Dickson in 1SS8. -They had only
been living here a few months when they
again separated and were divorced. Both
married again, Dickson taking a youu?
girl not then out of her teens, while Mrs.
Dickson was married to a Mr. Baker.
Last year Baker died.
Swore the GirTs Reputation Away.
Again Dickson and the much married
woman made up, but to get Dickson's
wife out of the way was the question.
For several weeks they puzzled over it
aud planned to uo effect. Finally the op
portunity came. Trumped up charges
were brought against her, and so plain a
case did they make against the unoffend
ing girl that Dickson was again granted
a divorce. The decree was made last
spring, aud a few days ago Dickson and
Mrs. Baker were married for the third
time. How long theywill live together no
oue can tell.
The Interstate Ride Match.
Springfield, Ills., Sept. 10. The sec
ond preliminary contest of the interstate
rifle competition closed yesterday with
the Illinois team 66 points in the lead.
The entire day was devoted to skirmish
ing, each team making two runs of twen
ty shots each. Illinois made an aggregate
of 1,107 points, which gives a total of 2,600
for the two days preliminary. The other
teams closed the day with the following
scores: Wisconsin Skirmih, 1,033; total,
2,624. Minnesota Skirmish, 1,023; total,
'J.454. Iowa Skirmish, 90; total, 2,434.
Prisoner in Bis Own House.
London, Sept. 10. The Standard pub
lishes a Constantinople dispatch con
firmatory of the report that the recently
deposed grand vizier, Kiamil Pacha, is
a virtual prisoner in his own house. Ki
amil is not allowed to leave his bouse or
receive visitors therein. The British am
bassador at Constantinople, Sir William
White, some days since dispatched a vig
orous note to the porte, demanding an
apology for affronts offered to British
merchant vessels in the Dardanelles.
Sensation at Madrid.
London', Sept. 10 The Times' corre
spondent at Madrid telegraphs that a
profound sensation has been created in
that city by the probable truth of a rumor
that the reserves are to be called out and
a new army corps formed and forthwith
mobilized. This, added to the fact that
tbe republican agitation in Coruuna has
become so grave in character that the
mob now defies the civic guard, causes
even the most optimistic to be appre-
ueusive tor tue tuiure.
Well Done, Montgomery.
Benton, Ills., Sept. 10. Thomas Mont
gomery, a prominent and well-to-do
farmer, while returning from Tamaroa
Tuesday night, was stopped by a man
armed with a knife. The highwayman
demanded Mr. Montgomery's money,
when the latter sprang from his wagon
and seizing a board nttapked the ruffian,
killing him. Mr. Montgomery received
several knife wounds.
