FROM_ ESSEL LLOY' L1N. STEA"MER GROUNDS NEAR KEY WEST BUT NO LIVES ARE LOST. Key West, March 9.-One hundred and sixteen passengers, all of whom were immigrants, bound from Spain to Cuba, with the exception of two first-class, passengers, were taken off the British' steatner Lugano, ashore on the Ajax reef off the Florida coast, by th)e tug Rescue this afternoon. Tonight the grateful passengers were landed here by the tug. All have been housed In buildings along the ducks. Trankter of the passengers from the ill-fate.i Lugano to the Rescue was effected by small boats. Of the passengers rescued, 12 were women, 15 children, and the remainder, 89 men. The Lugano struck the reef at 1:30 this morning. Distress rockets and ,wireless calls remained unanswered for hours. Finally a message was picked up by the United States ,wireless station here. At the same time it was inter cepted by the tug Rescue, bound for this port. The latter vessel immedi ately set out for the Lugano and had succeeded in taking off her passen gers before additional tugs sent from here arrived at the scene. Captain Penwill of the Lugano has wired officials of the Lloyd line, to which the Lugano belonged, notify ing thepi of the accident and asking that aid be sent at once in an effort to safe the ship. When the tug Rescue left the ship this afternoon she had 18 feet of water in her first hold. Complete explanation of the acci dent to the British steamer is not given. It is reported that the waters of the Gulf of Mexico were quiet last night and early today. DEATH OF RECLUSE RECALLS TALES EDWARD CONNOLLY OF SPO KANE HAD DISTINGUISHED RELATIVES AND HISTORY. Spokane, March 9.-Edward Con noblly, recluse, pioneer homesteader, civil war veteran and enthusiastic stu dent of Shakespeare, who was pro nounced "dead" by the superior court of Spokane county six weeks ago, really died in this city this week. He had a brother who was killed In the Indian mutiny at Calcutta, and his aunt was the famous Ann Devlin, who suffered a bayoneting from Eng lish soldiery rather than reveal the 'hiding place of the Irish hero, Robert Emmet. An eccentric, apparently sour-tem pered old man, beneath the surface Connolly had a sunny disposition. From his rough log cabin on his homestead south of Spokane. taken up in 1873, and retained as a. home ever since, many a wanderer departed fed and warm. To the few he permitted to enter into closest friendship with him he revealed a rare and apparently inexhaustible fund of anecldotes of travels all over the world, of battles on Union gunboats, of early trials in the western wilderness, of long months of roving. Connolly came to the. United States In 1863, and the following year be came a fireman In the United States navy, serving on the United States steamships Potomac, Hartford and Richmond. To the end he was the proud possessor of a prized letter 'from the executive officer of the Hart tford, Lieutenant Commander L. A. Kimberly, dated United States flag ship Hartford, Mobile Bay, Novem lber 26, 1864, and reading: "This is to certify that Edward ('onnolly was attached to this ship at the time of the capture of the forts, ironclades and gunboats in Mobile Bay, August 5, 1864." Connolly never married and has no relatives surviving him so far as is known. The funeral was held in ;Spokane, and the eccentric character's remains now rest In Fairmount ceme tery. EMPLOYES' FAMILIES BARRED FROM CANAL Panama, March 9.--After the first 'of April the Isthmian canal commts alon will place obstacles in the way of employes intending to bring their families to the isthmus, by withdraw ing the present reduced rates of trans portation. This action is rendered tnecessary by reason of the serious congestion in the employes' quarters In towns in the canal zone and also by the prospective speedy abandon ment of the quarters at Gorgona. An executive order signed by Pres Ident Taft on February 24, prohibiting the entry into continental territory of the United 'States from the canal zone, or other insular possessions, of skilled or unskilled alien laborers, has beenl received here.
