She confirmed the report that the

entirely destroyed at 8 o'clock or
Thursday morning by a volcanic erup

inhabitants of St. Pierre were killed
that the neighboring parishes werE
laid waste and that the residue of the
population of St. Pierre is withoul
food or shelter. The British roya
mail steamer Esk, which arrived a1
St. Lucia.this morning, reports havini
passed St. -Pierre last night. The
steamer was covered with ashes

not a single person residentEin St

colony and his staff, colonel and wife
were in St. Pierre and presumably per

cannot be imagined.

Whole City Destroyed.
St. Thomas, D. W. I., By Cable.
British steamer Roddam, Captain Free
man, which left St. Lucia Wednesday
for Martinique, returned - there at 5
o'clock Tuesday afternoon, bringing a
report that the town of St. Pierre,
Martinique, has been totally destroyed
by volcanic disturbances in the Island.
Almost all the inhabitants of St. Pierre
are said to ha.ve been killed. The Rod
dam reports that all the shipping in
the port.has also been destroyed.
A correspondent of the Boston Tran
script, commenting caustically on the
proposition to erect a statute of Benja
min F. Butler in Boston, says that
"the least we can do is to have a little
:ing of celebrities of this sort who
have been conspicuous as malefactors
standing up in the common." He adds,
"I shall be pleased to head a subscrip
tion list for this purpose. I will sub
scribe $25 for statute of Satan, $5 for
Benedict Arnold, $10 for John Wilkes
Booth, 30 cents for Aaron Burr, $5 for
Guieteau and $5 for Czolgosz." The
writer also suggests the addition of
horns and a tail to the Butler statue.

A movement is on foot in the town
of Loughrea, in the diocese ~of Clon
fert, in Ireland, to erect a cathedral,
which, It is the idea of the promoters,
shall be built and adorned by the best
builders and artists available. Theirs
is a sort of Ruskin ideal that every
brush and chisel stroke shall be made
by a genuine artist. Father O'Dono
van, the leader, is now in New York.
"We are going to make an attempt to
bring back real art -into the church,"
he said last night. "Many hundreds
of thousands of dollars have recently
been spent' on the construction of
churches. but the work has been
'sweated,' and hence, though costly,
-inartistic. The church we will build
up is already partially built, so its
style, Gothic, will be followed. We
-would if building anew, choose some
more native style, perhaps a Celtic
Ronanesque. The stained glass will
have real artistic merit, and the sculp
ture will be executed by John Hughs,
an Irishman, now engaged in Paris
with the Irish memorial to Queen Vic

-ble, will be done by native artists in
a spirit of love and reverence."

KILLED BY BROTHER
Paul Leicester Ford, the Novelist, Was
Shot to Death.
BOTH A MURDER AND A SUICIDE
Sad Tragedy That Resulted in the
Immediate Death of two Prominent
New York, Special.-Paul Leicester
Ford, the novelist, was shot and killed
Thursday by his brother, Malcom Web
ster Ford, writer and athlete, who im
mediately sent a bullet into his own
breast, dying instantly. The abooting
occurred at 10:20 a. m. in the hand
some new mansion which Paul Leices
ter Ford had built at 37 East Seventy
seventh street and had occupied for
one year. At the time of the shooting
there were in the house besides the two
brothers, Mrs. Paul Leicester Ford,
Miss Elizabeth R. Hall, the novelist's
secretary, and the servants. The nov
tlist was sitting at his desk in one
corner of his library; a large attrac
tively appointed room at the back of
the house on the second floor. It is sup
posed he was busily engaged at some
literary task. Miss Hall was at- her
desk in another corner of the room
about 30 feet from Mr. Ford. Mrs. Paul
Leicester Ford was in her own room
at the front of the house on the third
Malcom W. Ford called, as he often
had done, and went to his brother at
his desk. Words were exchanged in a
tone so low that Miss Hall could not
hear what was said, though she says
that possibly she might have distin
guished the words if she had been pay
ing any attention to this pkrticular
meeting of the brothers. , Suddenly
there was a revolver shot and Miss
Hall jumped up and darted from the
room. Then, accordin to the state
ments of the police, hMss Hall said to
herself that she must be more brave
and re-enter the library. Meanwhile
Malcom Ford had called her. As she
turned towards him, he placed his re
volver to his heart, fired and fell, dying'
instantly. When Miss Hall turned to
look at Paul, he was. still standing, at
his desk, but rapidly losing stren'gt

Dr. Emanuel Baruch. In less than five
minutes Dr. Baruch arrived and the
dying man, still conscious, was carried
up to a room beside his wife's and
placed on his bed. He spoke to his
wife, and asked the doctor for his opin
ion, showing that he expected death
and was going to meet it calmly and
bravely. A few moments later, about
20 minutes after he was shot, Mr. Ford
Mr. Kidder refused to make any
statement in regard to the shooting
except a brief memorandum which was
given to the police. in this it was said
that the cause of the shooting. could
only be surmised. Information from
other sources makes It appear that
Malcom Ford called to get money from
his brother, and meeting with a re
fusal, shot him.
Dr. Baruch said that the murder was
the result of temporary mental aberra
tion on the part of Malcom Ford, due
to nervous exhaustion.

DEATH OF SAMPSON
Retired Admiral Expires After Long
HIS DEATH WAS NOT UNEXPECTED
He Had Been Sinking Gradually But
Surely Ever Since the Close of the
Washington, Special.-Rear Admiral
William T. Sampson, retired, died at
his home in this city at 5 o'clock Tues
day afternoon. The immediate cause
of his death was a severe cerebral
hemorrhage. He had been in a semi
conscious state for several days and
this afternoon suffered a severe cer
bral hemorrhage. At the bedside when
the admiral breathed his last were
Mrs. Sampson, Mrs. Lieutenant Cluver
ius, the admiral's two young sons,
Ralph and Harold Sampson, Dr. Dixon
and the attending physician and nur
ses and attendants. Mrs. Sampson had
broken down under the severe strain,
and was quite i.ll all during the day.
But for the critical condition of the
admiral she would have been confined
to her bed.
It had been suggested to Mrs. Samp
son that the Naval Cemetery at Anna
polis would be a proper place for the
last resting place of the remains,
while other friends have -represented
her that he be buried in Arlington
Cemetery, near this city.
Mrs.-Sampson suffered a slight acci
dent four days ago while attending to
the wants of the admiral and has been
in bed since. She probably will not be
able to attend the .funeral services. A
