THE DISTRESS IN SPAIN.
STILL SHAKEN BY EARTHQUAKES.
Two Thousand Persons Killed Fifty
Five Towns Destroyed Great Suf
fering and No Medicine.
Maikii, Dec. 31. Reports received thii
morning from the ditricU in which the
earthquakes were inot severe further in
crea. the number of fatalititts and the
amount of damage done. Albuquerque, a
town of h,00U inhabitants in ltremadura,
ha. been completely destroyed, and 15J0
bodies have been taken $roin the ruin. At
Nerja, a town of 5,0m) people, 27 miles east
of Malaga, the earthquake was followed by
a hurriciine which completed the destruc
tion of many houses. At Malaga the
patient in the hospital were so terrified they
forgot their maladies and tied
to the open air. The couvicts in
ihe prisoner refused to enter their celL and
remained all night in the court yard. The
wall of every church in the city were cracked.
Many persons were killed at Cauillas. Ihe
old Moorish town of Alhama, of the "warm
baths," in Andalusia, twenty-six miles sooth
west of Granada, and which had a popula
tion of 7,0tA) people, and the adjoining town
of Santa Cruz, are completely destroyed.
Soldiers are clearing up the ruins in search
of corpses, over 1U0 of which have been
found, many of them horribly disfigured.
The numln-r of persons killed is unknown.
The search for bodies in the ruins
of Alhama is proceeding slow
ly, owing to fresh earthquake
shocks, which cause the men to fieo from
their work and seek open spaces. Other
joints report earthquake shocks, and the the
telegraph service has been reieatedly inter
rupted by them, causing the news to come in
very slowly. At Albunuelas 200 persons were
injured. From the ruined houses 100 bodies
have been recovered. Sixteen houses were
destroyed at Laujaron, Granada, and numer
ous houses demolished and lives lost in other
villages. Fifty corpses have been found at
Ventas de Tain Arranza. At Zatfaraya fifty
jKLTSons perished. At the old Roman
town of Loja (lf,000 pop.) twenty-six miles
from Granada the barracks were ruined.
At the ancient Roman and Moorish town
of Pri ego, 30 miles from Cordova, the shock
came while the theater was crowded with
people. A terrible panic followed. Many
persons jumped from, the galleries and
from windows upon the crowd below. Two
were killed and forty more or less seriously
injured. King Alfonso has subscribed $4,000
for the relief of the sufferers. The -Madrid
newspapers have opened relief subscriptions.
Dispatches received this aftsrnoon from
many points in Spain report that earthquake
shocks are still felt at intervals. The indi
cations now are that 2,000 persons perished.
People who fled from the towns to the coun
try upon tho reenrrance of the earthquake
shocks, 6till refuse to go back to their homes.
A very distressing feature of the calamity is
the Jest ruction of almost all medicines,
making it impossible to give proper treat
ment to the sick and wounded. For this
reason and for lack of food the mortality
among the sufferers is frightful. The total
number of towns reported nearly or wholly
destroyed is fifty-five. The university,
prison and hospital are greatly damaged.
The river Jorbena has disappeared from its
JUD CROUCH TESTIFIES
Concerning His Experience at Hol
Jackson, Mich., Dec. 31. Jud. Crouch
took the stand yesterday afternoon. Wit
ness slept with Foy at Dan Holcomb's house
on the night of the murder. All went to bed
early. About half-pa.it 9 o'clock he and Foy
were disturbed by a cat,, which they drove
down stairs and out of doors, hav
ing nothing on but their shirts.
When the boy Bolles came and told
of the murder he insisted on Dan
Holroinb going to town with Hutchins.
Picked up two shells at the Crouch hoase,
but did not know anything about the mat
ter of calibre. Neither did he know anything
about bloody clothing behind a chest, as
sworn to by Klla Shannon. He denied all
the conversation sworn to by Harrison
Snow, when the latter was on the stand, as
to the ill feeling between witness and his
fathe and White and wife. Everything was
entirely friendly all around.
Daniel S. Holcorab sworn: Am fifty-one
years old; am a farmer and own fiOO acres;
bought a revolver in Lansing October 2;
took it to William's and lost it in the woods;
I didn't know what calibre the revolver was:
shot it up there where Baker and William
found the shell; never saw the witness
Frank Mason till on the stand here; was up
to investigate a noise at e o'clock that niht;
Mrs. Holcomb heard the news of the murdar
from Nettie Snyder; I came to the city at
Hutchins' solicitation, and supposed the vic
tim had their throat cut and didn't want
my wife to go there.

Charles Engelhardt and George Stein-
bracher Have Trouble.
Charles Fngelliardt is a youthful Teuton,
fetill in his teeiu,and works at Kusterer's brew
ery. So did George Steinbracher, another
German, until Tuesday, when for some suf I
ticient caue he was given the grand bounce.
Though Cliarles is tili a callow youth, he
has learned enough to know that there is
nothing in life half to aweet as love's young
dream. Consequently he called for Katarina,
who helps to manage the kitchen depart
ment at the Bridge Street Houe, la?t night,
and with her took a walk over to No. JQ
West Broadway, where her mother and "sec
ond father" live. Now, it ho happens that
George Steinbracher and his bride., whom
he made las own by permission of the Police
Court a short time eince, reside in the
rear part of the same building. Dur
ing the course of the evening jCharlee and
George got to talking brewery matters over,
and it is presumable tliat George in some
way connected Charles with the grand bounce
he got the day before. At all everfts, the
meeting of these two Teutons, came very
near bringing on the tug of war. Charles
said, the more be talked with Steinbracher
the madder he got, until he finally drew a
revolver and threatened to shoot him
(Engelhart.) As that wasn't what Charles
had taken Katharina walking for, he jumped
out of the back window and ran to police
headquarters for an officer to arrest Stein
bracher. He told Clerk Hurley all about it,
how he had taken his girl out for a pleasant
time, was disappointed and how as he ran
when a quarter of a block away, Stein
bracher fired his revolver. When told he
would have to come in the morning and get
a warrant, he declared he woald have to go
back for his girl anyway. It is to be hoped
he got safely through the dangers of the
night, win his Katarina and teach Stein
bracher better manners than to spoil an

cluding Deaths of Prominent Men
- Ghastly Catalogue of Crimes.
Another leaf in the book cf Time lias b-tu
turned, another whirl of the wheel of Pate
has been made, the old year is dead and a
new one born. The old year wits one of
Ieace within our borders and with other na
tions. Houutiful harvests blessed tlii land
with abundance, and although speculators
were not specially prospered, the year
lM will be calendared in the
Book of Ages, as one of plenty. The -newborn
year come freighted with brighter
hoiies and fonder anticipation of greater
advancement and blessings, than 'has been
realized during the existence of any of its
predecessors. Hut befo the battle of life
is renewed it is well to pause and cast a short
retrospective glance at some of the events
the past twelve months brought to the sons
of men. Many sad dieters by fire, Hood,
storm and earthquake, make up the mishaps
and misfotunes of the year, and tho benefits
and blessings realized, it is fair to suppose
were proportionately greater. Of the long
chapter of the year's events ome of the
