Rome, Sept. 9. The effects of the
earthquake were more disastrous
than at first reported. Dispatches
frcm the south gives increasing lists of
dead and injured.
The numbers are now running into
thousands. Martiarno alone shows
?200 casualties. "While at Parghelia
the number of dead is estimated at
300 and Lappolo 200.
Many persons are still entombed in
the ruins in these and other district,
and touching scenes are enacted when
bodies are recovered and identified by
grief stricken relatives.
In some cases whole families have
been wiped out.
Slight shocks of earthquake are felt
occasionally, and subterranean rumb
lings are still heard. Those persons
still possessing homes refuse to enter
Rome. Sept. 9. There will be a
meeting of the cabinet tomnTcw to
consider measures for the relief of the
sufferers in yesterday's earthquake in
Calabria. Already King Victo: Emau
uel has donated $20,000 for the relief
of his people, but millions will prob
ably be needed.
Later reports indicate that the
earthquake was greater rlmn at first
thought. All the railrm-l stations
from San Giovani to Santa Eufomia
are filled with the populace, who,
driven from their homts, which were
wrecked, demand succor from the po
lice and -shout their iuteition of hav
ing it The spect'da is terrifying
and much trouble is feared.

Los Angeles, Sept 9. The Mexican
consul at this point is making a thor
ough investigation of the abduction of
Elolse Rodriguez from her home in
Chihuahua and her incarceration in an
immoral house in Los Angeles ana
her subsequent sale to a Mexican for
$75. It is the opinion of the consul
that there Is a system by which a
regular traffic in young girls is carried
on, and he hopes, with the assistance
of the local police officers, to ascer
tain if his suspicions are true, and
with the co-operation of the ' federal
government to break it up if it exists.
In the case of the Rodriguez girl, it
is said that she was unwilling to sub
mit to the indignities put upon her,
and for her refusal was branded on

Rifled Wetis-Fargo Money
Chests Found at His Cabin
Gcldfield, Nev., Sept. 9. Hidden far
under a huge pile of rocks and sage
brush, smoothed into as close as possi
ble a Resemblance to undisturbed na
ture, and within a few feet of what
has been positively identified as Wai
ter Scott's home, sixty-five miles south
of the Funeral Range, there have been
unearthed three of the ponderous mon
ey chests of the Wells-Fargo compa
ny, broken open and rifled of all con
tents. Now excitement runs high in
the Bullfrog district.
John P. Poe, a famous football play
er of the Princeton team, made the
discovery, and upon his return to Rhy
olite confided it to John T. Overbury,
a prominent and well known mining
Poe, while prospecting on the desert,
met Zeifie, who is one of the first dis
coverers of Walter Scott's hidden
home. Zeifie and Poe went In search
of the mine. They reached Scott's
cabin, and began prospecting. Through
out the immediate neighborhood were
pieces of broken boxes, and at the bot
tom of a pile of sagebrush and indis
criminate rubbish were three great
boxes. One, which appeared to have
been recently opened, lay uncovered in
the sun. The boxes gave evidence of
having come from the Santa Fe rail
road, and were evidently too large to
have been used on a stage route.
Broken bits of the boxes were found
collected in a pile and buried. Over
bury stated that Poo seemed to be a
man of his word, and added that his
story was accepted as bonafide in
Bullfrog. Poe left Zeifie in the can
yon near the scene of the find and re
turned for supplies to Rhyolite. He
will rejoin his companion at once.
Ruffle Session of Mail Carriers-Balk
on Federation
Portland, Ore., Sept. 9. Charges of
dishonesty against the association pre
cipitated a fight in the convention of
the National Letter Carrier's associa
tion today. Delegate John Hermer
waddle states he resigned from the
executive committtee for this reason
and made charges that papers of au
incriminating nature had been stolen
from his grip between Vancouver, B.
C. and Portland, while he was en route
to this city- to attend the convention.
President Keller replied that the
ch mad asainst Secretary Cant
.. ... ... .
wen, ot tne association, were uniouna-
ed and disgraceful and that his admin
istration had been honest President
Keller tated that because of the
charges he would withdraw his name
as a candidate for the presidency.
The debate was participated in by
delegates in all parts of the hall, there
being several on the floor during the
entire discussion, seeking to be recog
nized. Matters had hardly quieted
down when another uproar was creat
ed by the question as to what the ex
ecutive board meant by not reporting
the fact that Hemerwaddle had resign
ed, and the accusation was made that
the board was attempting to conceal
something. The discussion was brok
en by the adjournment for luncheon.
The convention by practically a
unamimous vote refused to consider
affiliation with the American Federa
tion of America.
Mrs. B. J. O'Reilly came to the city
last evening from Naco.

The shocks of the explosion was dis
tinctly felt in Connellsville, twenty
miles away, buildings being wrecked
on their foundations.
At L'niontown hundreds of panes of
glass were broken. In the town of
Fairchance there is scvcely a house
that did not suffer damage. Hay
stacks were toppled over in fields and

Then the packing house, pressing
room and magazine blew up, followed
by two cars of dynamite, standing on
a nearby track, which were set otf
by the concussion from the powdtr
mill explosions.
Many of the survivors had thrilling
experience. Orrville S-afaney was
working in the glazing room, and had
gone out for a drink of water. He was
just outside when the mixing mill
went up. The explosion thrsw him
high in the air, but he landed on his
feet in a network of fallen wires.
Dodging them, he sped arounc the hill,
and was fifty feet away when the sec
ond explosion threw him on his face.
He lay there stunned and knew noth
ing of the terrific blast that came
ihen the storage magazine went up.
Half an hour after the explosion he
was picked up and carried to a place
of safety. .
All day at short intervals Searchers
would bring in bits of bodies or cloth
ing. Some of these finds were carried in
cishpans or damaged powder cans
with which Ihe ground is strewn for
acres. The majority of the dead men
were single, although several of them
leave families.
A passenger train on the Baltimore
and Ohio, northbound from Morgan
town to Connellsville, was passing the
scene at the time the explosion oc
curred. The train was jarred tremen
dously and every window broken and
many passengers were cut by the
showers of glass.
The concussion was like an earth
quake to the country around about
and caused great excitement.

and the members of both houses of

the peace negotiations.
Baron Yammamoto, minister of the
navy, said that a heavier sacrifice
would have been necessary to take
Vladivostok than that involved in the
capture of Port Arthur, besides the
heavy monetary outlay. It was ad
visable to be satisfied with the pres

M. Oishi, the leader of the progress

should resign after concluding peace
upon such unsatisfactory terms.
Singapore, Sept. 9. In the Straits

with three guns and a store of ammu

of cartridges. 10,000 hungry working-
men control Baku today and have dis
persed the soldiery sent against them,
from whom they tool: the cannon.
When the Tartars' finished with the
town they had taken everything worth
stealing and then set it on fire. The
machinery of C00O oil wells has been
destroyed, the burning oil is flowing
in. the ..streets and is being used to
throw upon the soldiers, who cannot
face the mobs, 'who demand that the
soldiers leave the place.
In capturing the cannon the mob
rushed out of falling buildings, into
which the shells had just been fired,
killing scores of their companions, and
demand for revenge for this slaughter
is a howl such as was never heard on
the worst wolf-ridden Siberian steppe.
Every man in Baku capable of bearing
arms is well provided and shoots at a
uniform on sight. It may be said that
Baku is lost to the present force of
soldiers, and when recaptured will not
be worth the powder burned in the
endeavor. It is stark revolution, the
mob having tasted blood and gone
wild for an orgy.

calves are lower this week. The
supply for three days amounts to C8,

week, 15 to 25 cents below a week
ago. Killing cattle are selling steady

Battling Nelson Winner
of Great Fistic
Britt Fought ail the Way hut
Never in it With the Dane
Intense Interest
San Francisco, Sept. 9. In a fight
that will long stand in a class ot its
own in the history of ring contests.
Battling Nelson knocked, out James
Britt this afternoon.
The end came in the eighteenth,
round and was a fairly won victory.
The story of the battle furnishes i
thrilling narrative. No element that
goes to give a fight the superlative ti
tle of "greatest" was missing.
The surroundings, the crowd, the
known bitterness of the men towari
each other, the uncertainty as ta
whether there would be a fight at all
up to within a quarter of an hour
befcre It actually begun, the clever
ness, gameness and endurance display
ed by the two boxers, these are what
made the fight a great one.
It was the story of many another
ring contest, the success of the strong,
sturdy, enduring fighter against a clev
er, cool boxer. This in brief is a de
fccription of Nelson and Britt's ring;
From the first noraent of the fight

of ten. Nelson forced tho fightiag
Though battered by innumerable bruis

times very tired, Nelson never for one

times, but never was he able to beat
him back and change the aspect of the
Only once, in the third round, di4
it appear to those close enough io
judge the end of the battle, thai Britt
might win. In this round he reached
the most vulnerable spot on Nelson's
muscle-armed body, his stomach, with
two terrific right hand blows that car
ried punishing force behind them. Nel
son faltered for a moment and doub
led over. Quickly turning his atten
tion to Nelson's face, Britt sent in a.
terrific right cross that dropped the
Dane to his knees.
' There was a great shout from Britt's;
friends, but tho elation was short
lived. Nelson got up before the timer
could reach tho count of two, anJ
fought in tho way he knows how ta

The tireless persistency, the most
discouraging thing to the opposing;

physical punishment, won the fight for
Britt, had he never achieved victory,
