Galveston, Texas, April 16. For
a whole day- the Mexican coast
cable lines were silent aa the ; result
I of the seismic disturbances through
lout Southern Mexico. The cables
' 15- 1.31 :' ' .5
are sun worKiug naaiy, anu oper
ators report the wildest rumors
from outlying districts to the south
of Vera . Cruz. .;, The .natives are
panic stricken and report great loss
Along the coast below Tampioo
one severe and three light shocks
were recorded between 11 A. M.
and 1 o'clock Sunday night. Ves
sels arriving at Vera Cruz and Coot
zacoalcos report a terrible upheaval
in the southern gulf 'early eunday
evening." ' Shipmasters declare the
gulf rose like a mountain, and then
sunk ia the'icenter like a volcano
and that treacherous seas were run
ning after this. The sky was clear
but the gulf was greatly agitated
Colima, the ancient volcano in
the state of Colima, has been vio
lently active for the past three
days, according to dispatches from
the interior. The natives are flee
ing from the valley fearing tbfc
downpour of lava.
Earthquake shocks continue at
intervals of about half an hour all
over the affected territory. The
towns of Chilpancicgo and Chilapa,
farther down the coast, are reported
to have been totally destroyed by
the earthquake shocks. The death
list in these two cities is placed at
500. Reports from, smaller towns
throuchoat the southern part of
Mexico indicate great damage and
loss of life from the quake.
The entire southern part of the
republic, from Mexico City south
and from coast to coast, has tell se
verely the effects-of 4he earthquake
The people of ' the destroyed towns
are living in the open. and many of
them have appealed to the Govern'
ment for teote. . ,, .. t
Telegraphic communication has
been partly restored in many places
connections being made by the lo
cat operators wherever they can
find the fallen wires and establish
a circuit. Many Of the lower towns
in the ' earthquake belt have not
been heard from.

ed by Misb K. E. Taylor aged 26
at 124 Broadway, was in love with

that above all others it is . the de
sire of Mr. Heney to direct the fire
of the prosecution against. Calhoun
and the men who occupy the eeate
of the mighty in the councils of the
Southern Pacific. Harriman's rep
resentative on thej Pacific, W. F.
Herrin, is one of the .chief objects
of Mr, Hehey's investigation. Mr.
Herrin has always refused to come
to the open and even ' now, with
public attention centered upon him
he remains in the back ground.
