' 2 TIIE SCRANTOIN" TIUBTJ25T3 TTJESDAY MOBSINn, DECEMBER 20, 1890. THE DISASTER AT CAHABRA BRIDGE List of the Dead Dally. la lucreailof MORE BODIES YET IN THE RIVER The List Is Now l p to Twenty-three. It I Thought That the Victim Were Cremated AliveExamina- tioa of the Ilridno Hevegds a Dc liberate IMot to Wreck the Train. TlrmlnKham, Ala., Dec. 8. Few fur ther details are obtainable than those (riven In yesterday's dispatches as to the terrible railroad wreck at the Caha ha river brldue yesterday. The rail road otliclals have a list of twenty-one dead, that number of bodies having been taken out of the river, but the belief gains ground that there are more dead bodies yet In the river, or else some were entirely constimd by fire. It seems Impossible to ascertain how many uassngcrs were on the train. Nearly all had round-trip holiday tickets and had been away from home to spend Clirlstmus. It develops this mornintr that a man named Llbbs and his wife ot on the train at Uulners, six miles this side of the wreck. They are missing, and It Is probable that they were burned in the wreck. This runs the list of known dead up to 2S. Others to the number of six who were supposed to be missing have been accounted for. LIST OP THE DEAD. The corrected list of dead and mlss- lncr now stands as follows: Itullruud employes Frank White, en Rlneer; Juines Howling, express mes senger; Ovuw Carney, HuKliiun; A. P. Comiell, conductor; Tom Sstreeter, por ter; ll. Webb, bridge watchman. Passengers Itruce Phillips, L. W. Martin, Mrs. Henry Hanbury and two children. Kev. It. II. Mount. Miss Ada Towers. D. J. Powers, Mrs. Kminu low era and two children, Mrs. K. Little, James (lordlier, mother and sister, Mr. Llbbs and wife. The Injured are: Henry Hanbury, will probably die; Andrew Bryson, will die; E. H. Eckels, Will Gurdn. r. Miss Hoth, Sam Stuart, fireman; child of Mrs. Powell and Mrs. Walker, ell slightly hurt. The only persons on the train to es cape unhurt were three little children of Mrs. Walker. It is thought that fully half the dead were cremated alive. A further examlnutlon of the bridge shows that the spikes on one side had been drawn for a rail length, which In dicates that a rail was moved out of place to deliberately wreck the train. W. 1). Koss, a bridge carpenter, who was hurt In a collision at the scene of the disaster between two relief trains died today. Another bridge carpenter, named Kstes had both his legs cut off In the second wreck and will die. SISTERS' HEROISM SAVES LIVES. A Church Panic. Calmed by Several lirnvn Worn n. Paltlmore, Md., Dee. 28. The pres ence of mind of several Catholic sisters of the Order of St. Francis tonight prevented loss of life at a Christinas entertainment In the hall of the Holy Itosnry church. The hall Is on the third lloor of the school building. Over SOO persons, mostly Polish women and their children, were crowded into It. On the stage fifty or more children were taking part in the tableaux. Illus trating scenes in the life of Christ. One of the little girls thoughtlessly pushed a gauze curtain too close to a gas Jet. In an instant a ilame shot up wards and across the top of the stage. The children screamed. A panic fol lowed, and death would have resulted but for the sisters, who, stationing themselves at the narrow exits, held back the children and excited women and guided them slowly out the door ways. Some of the frightened people rushed for the windows, but the sis ters again prevented any rash attempt at escape. The lire was quickly subdued and many of the people left the building by means of the lire escupes. Several wo men fainted from fright, but no one was hurt. ASTOR A SUBJECT OP THE QUEEN. The Millionaire Said to Hare Fore sworn His .Native Land. Xew York, Dec. 28. A letter was re ceived here yesterday from London to the effect that William Waldorf Astor has foresworn his native country, w here he made his millions, or, rather, where his millions were made for him, and has taken the oath of allegiance to the queen. People who know Mr. Astor has given expression to the Idea that Amer ica Is not a fit place for a gentleman and of his family troubles. Mr. Astor Is but 48 years old, and gossips have made him an aspirant to the hand of one of the Prince of Wales' daughters. HORRORS OF THE WATERSPOUT. Portugese Consulate Gives Details of the Disaster of November 2. Boston. Dec. 28. The Portuguese consulate in this city has received a petition from the Island of St. Michael, In the Azores, signed by the Portuguese governor and nineteen of the principal citizens, asking aid for the sufferers by the bursting of a giant waterspout November 2 over the city of Povoacao. Opposite Wyoming House. The petition states that there is much suffering for food, clothing and shelter, and gives some particulars of the cal amity than which, it states, none has been more devastating in the history of the island. Tons of water poured down upon the city, which was of about 25.000 Inhabit ants, mounting above the roofs of the houses, ripping up the streets and car rying destruction everywhere in its path. The torrent reached down the slopes to the sea, tearing a wide chan nel through nine miles of country and carrying with it the homes of thou sands of people. The Hood also de stroyed the town of Iilberlit Quente, of 3,000 population and several outlying parishes. All along the coast the fish ermen lost their boats and the shore was littered with the corpses o those who perished In the Hoods. ACCIDENTAL SHOOTING. Elbert Tiffany Receives n Hullet That Was Intended lor a Target. Special to the Sc-ranton Tribune. Lindaville, Dec. 28. About 3 . p. m. Christmas day two boys, sons of O. L. Tiffany, and a boy from Franklin Forks by the name of Snow, were prac ticing at target shooting in the door yard. The target was a mark of some kind on a small out-building, with open cracks between the boards. Elbert Tiffany was inside the building when one of the shots was tired, und the ball from a 22-callbre rille easily found Its way through one of the open cracks, and without any apparent ob struction struck Elbert near the spine, Just ubove the hips and was driven so far Into his body thut Dr. Wheeler, of Nicholson, who probed for the ball, was unable to reach it with any In strument then In his possession. The fuct that the ball had passed the spine before It entered the llesh and that Its course was uway from the spine, and the further fact that It en tered the body below the vital organs are favorable to Elbert's recovery. The doctor says that two Inches higher would have been futal. Elbert Is not suffering much pain and hopes for u speedy recovery are enter tained. BIG MAIL TtOBBERY.

Chicago, Dec. 28. A special from St. Paul, Minn., says: Leander Hosch, paying teller of the of the suspended bank of Minnesota, has disappeared. When the receiver took charge of the bank he was in formed than an Item In the accounts of the paying teller could not be satisfac tory understood without a personal ex planation from Mr. Hosch. The dis crepancy amounts to between $1,000 and ?2.000. and is so small that the assets of the bank are not affected. The sum, Indeed, is so trivial that It Is believed Mr. Bosch could readily replace It from his personal means should the omission be not exp.amed by a rechccklng of the hocks. EXCLUSIVELY.

Stocks during the early hour of business were quiet uid heavy. Lower quotations from London and the bank troubles at the west bring the disturbing factors. The pressure to sell was not pronounced by any means. Uuiiington und Quincy scored the heaviest loss In the railway lint und fell 24 per cent. Consolidated Gas was the feature of the Industrial group and broke 4'4 Ier cent, with a 1 Ue rall to 1:19. Sugar was tlrm con sidcrlng ali the talk about a war with Arbin kles. The losses In the general list were unimportant. In the last hour of iradinf the market developed firm ness on (Hurts to cover short sales made earlier in the day. The rally In prices tanged from VA to I '4 per cent. Speculation closed quiet and firm. Net changes show gains of U'uTj per cent. In lie;. ding, Manhattan and sugar, and losses of about as much In the usually active stocks. Uuiiington was an ex ception, losing 1 on the day. Total sales were only lOl.OUO shares.
