SHOWERS OF BALLS OF GOLDEN FIRE FALLTHROUGH DARKNESS Castries. Isiand or St- Lccla. British TVest ladles. Sept. L The British steamer Korona arrived here yesterday evening from Fort Ce France. Island of Martinique. The reports that a terrible eruption of Most Pelee occurred at 3 o'clock Saturday eight, and that persons who arrived at Fort de France, at the northern part of the. Island, report that the village of Morse Bonce, near the district previously devas tated, had been entirely destroyed, and that 2 Carbet. a village on the coast that was destroyed by the other, eruption, had keen swept away by a tidal wave. About SO persons lost their lives. DETONATIONS THE LOUDEST EVER HEARD. A sloop from the Island of St. Vincent which arrived here this morning reports that Mont Pelee's crater Is now quiet, but that the Catenations Saturday night were the loudest heard up to that time, and that the inhabitants were terribly alarmed. Mont Pelee has been In constant eruption since August 15. There was an enormous fall of ashes from the volcano the night of August 25. There was a very severe erup tion the night of August .5, when the vol canic rumblings were heard at a. great dis tance. The mountain burned fiercely that night and out at sea passing vessels were cov ered with ashea. The night of August 33 i there were three separate eruptions. IMPOSSIBLE TO REACH ST. PIERRE. It Is Impossible to approach the mined town of St. Pierre from the sea. The people of the village of Le Carbet. on the coast, are terror-stricken and flying to the Interior. Hot water Is pouring down en Lorraln and Basse Points, villages to the northeast of the crater. Horrible detonations" were hard. the ground rocked and quaked and articles on tables were thrown to the fioor. The Governor of Martinique has ordered every available beat to remove the people from the coast villages to Fcrt de France. At S o'clock In the evening of Saturday. August a. the sky was cloudless. Suddenly one-half of the horizon was ob scured by a pitch black cloud of dust. Thfc cloud as the center of most mag nificent electrical effects, the flashes of light surpassing the mot elaborate fireworks. Flames and flashes continued to burst from the cloud until nearly midnight. 8HOWEF.3 OF GOLDEN FIRE FROM CRATER. Columns of flame shot out of the crater of Mont Pelee to escape about the cloud In showers of balls of golden Are. which fell through the darkness in myriads of sparks. Three large aureoles were seen In the sky ever the opening of the crater. A tidal wave rushed upon Fort de France and the terrified Inhabitants fled in large numbers to the Interior. The wave was not severe and did but slight damage. At midnight of August 3) Mont Pelee was quiet. Shortly after this hour there came another shower of ashes, accompanied by vtvid sheets of lightning. In addition to the 200 perons reported to have lost their lives at Le Carbet and Morse Rouge, many other persons are said to have been killed aU over the northern districts of the Island. The Governor of Martinique Is believed to have started for the scene of destruction. "When the steamer Korona arrived here yesterday she was covered with ashes and scoriae.

REPUBLIC SPTCIAL New Tork, SepL L Ctterances of James R. Keene on the ngwMi situation last week recall those mads two years ago while In London. A comparison Is made: July 2S, 1S00. American railroad stocks are not, in my opinion, low; In fact, I consider most of them quite high In price. Here Is one fact which must never be lost sight of in Tnavtnc investments that is the enormous overcapitalization of American railroads so far beyond the ac tual cost of their construction that at a moderate estimate 33 per dent of such capitalization is absolute water. The necessity Is always rresent for fresh capitalization, which comes frequently enough to warn the observing investor that his dividends come from this new tAUKA. fid nfit fnwn TiH!ma.t Hti.'ts. In two years that have gone by records show that fully three billions of new securities have been created. Prices have advanced from SO to 300 per cent above those that prevailed when Mr. Keene thought rallrcad shares were too high. Angust27. ISCt The fundamentals of the market are good. Although prices may work high now In contrast with past quotations, I believe prices are relatively lower and stocks Intrinsically more valuable than they were sir years ago. I know of no false dividends, but I do know of railroads that have been earn ing 13 per cent and paying C per cent. outsico or gome great and unexpected calamity I can see nothlne which mleht disturb the upward trend except a possl- bio money stringency.
