It whs a moment of exultation for the Cubans, and the fact that the stars and stripes Hunted from its customary fla jstalf beside the Cuban Hug over the castle did not lessen their enthusiasm. When the smoke of the Julia was Been in the di lection of MatnnzRa the flag was hauled up.

Killed by His brother. Thiii1:! ay, .May 0, Paul Leicester Fo.d, the novelist, was shot and killed by Ills brother. Malcolm Webster For i, writer and athlete, who Immediately sent n bullet into his own brta.-l, dy ing Instantly. The shiotlng occurred at a. in. In the handsome new mansion which Paul Leicester Ford had built at 37 East "7th street and had occupied for about a year. It is faid that there was enmity be tween Hie two brothers, and conve nient bitterness, and that it was of 11 years stiuidins; that never since the death cf their father have they been in Intimate or brotherly terms. This al leged eamity on the part of Malcolm Is said to have been brought about by the fact that the father of the boy 3 disinherited Maledm and that thU action u the father's part was because he did not wi-h Mnleohn to devote himself to an athletic career. Police Captain Brown faid that Mal colm W. Ford had been causing much uneasiness, to the family fcr some time because of evidences of an un balanced n'ind. He declares that, in his opinion, he attacked his brother during a period of temporary insan ity. "The cause of Malcolm Ford's ac tlon." said Captain Hrown. "can b? explained by Inference. For some time past his financial affairs have been pressing him and he has re peatedly asked assistance from his brother. It is presumed that his im portuning had been such and his de mand so excessive that his brother had been forced to refuse further aid." Paul Leicester Ford was 37 years bid. a novelist of note. "Janice Mere dith" and "The Hon. Peter Stirling" being hla best known novels. He was the son of Gordon Lester Ford of Droolilyn, who died 11 years ago and left an estate of some J2.00fi,0o0 dl Tided between his children, with the exception of Malcolm W., who was disinherited by the will.

Impossible to Approach Town For Hour After Eruption Frencn Cruiser by Heroic Effort Rescued Some 30 Survivors Some of Whom Afterwards Died Fled to Hills. Fort De France, Martinique, May 11 Advices received from St. Pierre contain detcils of the terrible vol canic upheaval which resulted In the utter destruction of that town and the death ot nearly all Its inhabitants. The crater of Mont Pelee had been wearing its "smoke cap" since the 3d of May, but there was nothing until last Mimiay to indicate that there was the least danger. On that day a stream of bulling lava burst through the top of the crater, plunging into the valley of the Kiver Blanche, over whelming the Guerin sugar works and killing 23 work people and the son of the prcpiletur. A commission was appointed by the governor to investigate the outbreak and it returned a reassuring report on Wednesday evening. But about 8 o'clock on Thursday morning a shower of fire rushed down on St. Pierre and the coast from Le Carbet. which had a population of G.Ooo, to Le Precheur, which had a population of 4.000, burn ing up everything in its path. Throughout Thursday the heat In the vicinity of St. Pierre was so in tense and the stream of flowing lava was so unremitting that It was impos sible to approach the town during the early part of the day. As evening approached the French cruiser Suchet, after a heroic battle with the heat, .nfTocation and sulphur fumes, suc ceeded in making a dash toward the shore, nearins the land close enough to enable her to take off 30 survivors of the disaster all of whom were hor ribly burned and mutilated. St. Pierre at that time was an ab F.;dut.ely smoking waste, concealing 30.000 corpses, whose rapid decom position necessitates, In some cases, Instantly completing their cremation which was only partially accomplished by the lava. The Inhabitants of Fort Be France were panic stricken, the morning of the disaster, when (he sky suddenly blackened until it was as dark as at midnight. The sea shrank back r.O yards, hot rain began to fall, while gravel the size of walnuts poured down on the town. This lasted about 15 minutes and then the town began to resume its normal aspect. The work of relief Is progressing here on the most extensive scale pos sible, but in anticipation of disturb ances the treasury building and the warehouses are guarded by troops. The Intest reports received hero showed that lava continues to pour down the slopes of (he mountain, slowly engulfing the whole north sidij of the Island while fresh crevasses are continually opening. "All the hills surrounding T.e Car bel and Le Precheur (near St. Pierre), are covered with refugees, to the number of about 5,000, who are belnj taken away gradually. In the mean while provisions are being conveytd to them. "Of the So persons who were orig inally rescued by the French cr.llscr Suchet the majority were fearfully burned and nine died while on their way to the hospital. "The corpses which are heaped In the ruins of St. Pierre are not only completely naked but are frightfully mutilated." The minister of marine, M. DeLnnes san, received a cablegram from the commander of the French cmiser Suchet, dated Fort De Fiance, Martin ique, saying that he conducted a search at St. Pierre Saturday. The captain reports that the town Is now a mere heap of smoking ruins under which the victims of the catastropho are burled. The Suchet was able to convey some of the Inhabitants of Le Precheur tc Fort De France, but could not reach the northernmost part of the island on account of the dense rain of ashes which was falling. The captain of the Suchet further reported that the Mont Pelee volcano still had a threatening aspect. Subter ranean rumblings were still heard, flashes of flame frequently belched from the volcano and stones were thrown out with Immense force. A dispatch received at the colonial office here from Fort De France says there Is no doubt that Governor Moiit tet and the commander of the troops at St. Pierre, Colonel Daln, are dead. Other dispatches confirm the re ports that the American and British consuls and their families perished. M. Blorh. Inspector of finance, and M. La Barthe, the colonial minister's secretary, who have been dispatched by the government to Martinique, sailed from Brest Sunday on board tho French cruiser D'Assas, which carries money, provisions and other stores for the relief of the Martinique sufferers. A French cable official who went to St. Pierre repor; that the comiauy'8 ofilce has been btirnei to ashes and that there is no trace of the start. This official adds that the cremation of the bodies of the victims has begun and that the cable steamer I'ouyer-Quertier is proceeding to repair the northern cable. The waves of lava are still reported to be flowing northward. They have extended even to Le Carbet. Tho candidates for election to the French chambrr of deputies who per ished at St. Pierre were MM. Percln and Le Clerc. The colonial minister has organized a relief distribution committee con sisting of himself and M. Decral- former colonial minister, tho colonial members of the chamber of deputies, the colonial senators and a number cf mmiceri ial men. The first meeting ol this committee will occur Tuesday. The British ambassador. Sir El rmind J. Monsen, called at Elysee pal ace Sunday afternoon and common! rated to President Loubet personally the sympathy cf King Edward. WORST NEWS CONFIRMED. American Consul at Guadeloupe Tells of Horrible Desolation. Fort De Fiance, Island of Martin ique. May 13. It now seems to be gen erally admitted that about 30,000 per sons lest their lives as a result of the ou'.biea!; cf the Mont Pelee volcano, at St. Pierre, on Thursday last. Careful Investigation by competent govern ment officials show that the earlier re ports of the pi ess were accurate. Briefly put, last Thursday morning, the city of St. Pierre disappeared with in 10 minutes in a whilring cyclone ol fire vcmited from Mont Pelee; 30,000 persons were instantly and horribly killed and the volcano, whose ancient crater had been occupied by a quiet lake in which picnic parties bathed, suddenly discharged a torrent of fiery mud, which rolled towards the sea, engulfing everything before It. Then (he last of cable communication was broken and the doomed city was isolat ed from the world. The commander of the French cruis er Suchet pave the American consul at Guadeloupe, Louis II. Ayme, the first news of tho appalling disaster the day after It occurred. Mr. Ayme has reached the desolate spot where St. Pierre stcod and confirms the awful story In all its essential features. From nn interview with Colonel Ayme, who is a trained American newspaper man, the following facts are learned regarding the destruction of St. Pierre: Thursday morning found the Inhabi tants of that city anxiously looking towards the thick clouds shrouding tho Mont Pelee crater. All day Wednes day horrid detonations had been heard. These had been echoed from St. Thom as on the north to Barbadoes on the south. During the night of Wednes day thesp had ceased, and only fine ashes, like rain, fell on St. Pierre. As this continued the governor. M. Mouttet. who was then at Fort De France, tried to stop tho panic which the volcanic disturbance caused. He declared the dnnger would not In crease, sent a detachment of soldiers to prevent a general exodus of the Inhabitants and later went to St. Pierre himself with his wife. Cyclone of Fire, Mud and Steam. The British steamer Roraima ar rived at St. Pierre some time lifter wards with 10 passengers, among whom was Mrs. Stokes and her three children and Mrs. .lalnce. They were all watching the rain of ashes, when, with a frightful roar and terrific elec tric discharges, a cyclone of fire, mud and steam swept down from the crater over the town and bay, destroying a fleet of vessels at anchor off the shore. There the stories stop. Twelve survivors only are in the military hospital at Fort De France, while 30,000 corpses are strewn about or burled In the ruins of St. Pierre, or else floating, gnawed by sharks. In the surrounding seas. Twenty cicht charred, half dead hu man beings were brought here. Six teen of tlietn are already dead and four others only are expected to recover. The press steamer, chartered In Guadeloupe, reached Martinique at 6:30 Sunday morning. The lofty hilled Island was hidden behind a huge veil of violet or leaden colored hnze. Enor mous quantities of the wreckage of large and small thlps and houses were met with. Huge trees and floating bodies, wilh flocks of seagulls soaring above and hideous sharks fighting about them, were found here and there. From behind the volcanic veil came blasts cf hi t wind, mlnglpd with others Ice celd. At T e Precheur. five miles north of St. Pierre, canoes filled with men and women, frantic to get away, were found. The city of St. Pierre stretched nearly two miles along the water front and half a mile back to a cliff at the Aase of the volcano. The houses of 'he richer French families were built of ctone. The nsh-covercd hills were flanked by the still smckln-r volcano. Frightful Odors of Burned Flesh. The ruins were still burning In many places and Irightful odors of burned llcsh filled the air. With great dlfii culty a landing was effected. Nut one house was left Intact. Everywhere were viscid heaps of mud, of biigntor ashes or plies of volcanic stones. The streets could hardly be traced. Here and there amid the ruins wore heaps of corpses, almost all the faces turned downwards. In one corner 22 men, women and children were min gled in one awful mass, arms and lege proti tiding as the haplesu beings fell In the last struggles of death agony. Through the middle of the old Place Bertln ran at ,lt stream, the remains Df the Kiver U!ive. Great trees with roots upward and scorched by Or-j were strewn In every direction. Huge blocks and still hot stone' were scattered f bout. From under otif large stone the arm of a white womai protruded. Most notable was the ut ter silence and the awlul, overpower ing stench from the thoi.uiiids of dead. A. G. Austen, the manager of the Colonial bank of Barbadoes. tended M St. Pierre with a party from the Brit ish royal n.ail steamer Solent. lie found the bank clock stopped at some mini N s before 8 o'clock.
