Haverstraw, N. V., Dec. 5. Twelve
barge loaded with brick, in tow of the
tug Townsend, of the Cornell Towing
Co.. were upset when opposite Croton
Point last night, and thirty persona are
supposed to have been drowned. The dis
aster was caused by the heavy awash of
the ryer, which compelled the tug to
rounrtrto, causing the barges to ride each
ether and the high tide washed over them
until they upset. The men on board,
sixty nil told, took to row boats, five to a
boat, but up to a late hour only thirty of
the men have come ashore, and it is fear

ST. rArt; Dec. 5 At 1 o'clock yester
day afternoon thundering crash was
heard In, the center of the wholesale dis

the ruins clearing away the debris.
Came on Them Without Warning.
There was not the slightest intimation
that tere was danger of such a catas
trophe. No one had anticipated bnt that
the supports would hold it from the side.
The crash came without warning and
simultaneously the screams and groans of
the dead and dying were heard. About
dozen- men who were at work on Third
street ran to the scene and began search
ing among the ruins. Fifty others, de
spite the fact that men were dying among
the rnins, stood aloof, afraid to venture
within Teach of tbe remaining walls,
which now tottered menacingly.

A general police alarm was turned in.
and in a few minutes all the police dis

and erces of extra men. Police Chief
t'iark, with Fire Chief Jackson and his
assistant chief, made an attempt to or
ganize the laborers and set them to work
remoVing ibe dead ami injured. The
men were wild with excitement, however,
and it was a long time before more than
half ft dozen could be induced to go at the
work. The others ran back and forth
around the building shouting to each
other and uttering imprecat ions against
the contractors, or stood gnzing blankly
at tin- ruin.

The fire department, under Chief Jack
son, arrived almnvt a soon as the police,
and tbe men of the latter department
rendered invaluable aid. In less tbaa

After this the Indians began a series of
tortures and his life was only saved by
the timely arrival of , iatachaient of
soldiers, who drove ol the lavages.
Sanderson was taken to the fort with the
soldiers and remained ".here until he had
recovered his health. Then he took a
solemn oath to be revenged in a manner
that would make his name a terror to the
Indians. He supplied himself with a rifle,
revolver aud ammunition and started out
on his tour of extermination.

and bad killed at least HJ Indians and
seventy ponies. He made no distinction
between men, women and children, but

attention to the Indians, a treaty was
made with the Comanches, and it waa
stipulated by the Indians that r-'anderson
should be called away from the country.
