being caught by the heavy beams.

Is Cases of Yellow Fever Deveo In New
Orleans Many Town Veclare a, Quaran
tine Agalnut the C re cent City.
New Orleans, Sept 18. Shortly be
fore noon Sunday the board of health
ifficially declared six of the suspicions
cases of fever on St Claude street to
be yellow fever. A couple of hours
subsequently the board announced an
other pronounced case of yellow fever
at Miro and Esplanade streets, also in
the lower part of the city, but a mile
away from the infected square. No
general alarm has resulted here, al
though the news raidly spread through
the city. The authorities do not be
lieve that the situation is materially
worse than it was four or five days ago
and they in Btill confident of their
ability to successfully quarantine the
infected districts.
Of the original 12 cases, all of which
originated from-a case that came from
Ocean Springs, the six other than those
reported Sunday as yellow fever weVe
announced to be practically welL Of
the six pronounced yellow fever, four
are convalescent and two are critically
Among the suspicious cases reported
Saturday was that of a boy named
Roy, living at Miro and Esplanade
streets; Three doctors were sent to
observe the case. Yesterday they pro
nounced it to be unquestionably yel
low fever and as having its origin in
Scranton, Miss., or near that town. As
soon as the report was received the
board of health took charge of the
house, quarantined the inmates, placed
guards so that no one might come close
to the premises, and set to work to
disinfect the neighborhood.
President Oliphant, soon after he got
the report of the experts, wired Gov.
Foster, who is co-operating with the
board. The news was generally spread
through Louisiana and the southern
states, and it is probable that most of
the towns that have not quarantined
New Orleans will now refuse to have
any communication with this city.
The situation in this respect will not
be much aggravated, for the Crescent
City has already been bottled up for
several days.
Hazelton, Pa., Is Held by 3,000 Militia
Sequel to the Massacre of Miner by
Sheriff Martin and His Deputies.
Hazelton, Pa., Sept. 13. The situa
tion is graver than it has been at any
time since the bloody affair on Friday
afternoon. There is strong reason to
fear a conflict between the strikers
and the military and there is an indi
cation that from 5,000 to 7,000 more
miners will join the malcontents.
Feeling continues high against Sher
iff Martin and his deputies, and the
intensity of the situation is such that
a sudden turn of the head or a word
spoken above the ordinary tone brings
a running crowd. The 3,000 soldiers
here under the command of Gen. Gobin
are ready for any emergency, and the
people of the town are in a state which
may easily become a panic.
To all intents and purposes Hazelton
is under martial law. Gen. Gobin de
clared last night that in spite of the
warrants issued, no constables nor any
civic authority will be permitted to ar
rest the deputies. He said that the
sheriff is an executive officer whose
duty is to preserve the peace, and that
he, Gobin, and the troops, are really
suoordinate to the sheriH at this time.
being engaged in helping him to per
form that duty. Under these circum
stances he will not permit interference
with the sheriff's officials so long as
the militia is here. In spite of this
fine distinction the commander s de
cision on this point is accepted as su
perceding the civil authorities by the
military power.
The events of Sunday .were the
death of another of the 40 men wound
ed, an 18-year-old boy wh was shot
through the head; the announcement
by the hospital doctors that six more
will die, and the funeral of four of the
23 victims. Ten will be burled to-day,
and here trouble is likely to occur.
Dr. H. P. Lewandoski, of New York,
representing the Polish societies of
that city, arrived here Sunday. He is
empowered to assist the strikers in
every possible way; to help them to
gain their demands from the operators
and to arrange for the prosecution of
the sheriff and deputies.
A Scientist Returns from a Trip to a Fa
mous Spot In New Mexico HI Discov
Washington, Sept 13.-F. W. Hodge,
of the Smithsonian institute, has just
returned from an expedition to the En
chanted Mesa of New Mexico, which
has excited the Interest of scientists'
and the daring of exploring parties. It
was brought into prominence a few
months agq by the expedition of Prof.
Libbey, of Princeton university, who
took rope-throwing mortars, huge
kites, balloons and tons of apparatus
to scale thiB hitherto inaccessible table
The purpose of the investigations has
been to determine whether the Bum
mit of the mesa was at one time in
habited by the prehistoric Acoma In
dians. Prof. Libbey reported-no evi
dence of early occupancy. Mr. Hodge's
explorations have brought different re
mits, however, for after scaling the
mesa he spent some time on the sum
mit, found a number of fragments of
pottery, arrows, shell bracelets, stone
axes, etc., , establishing exclusively
that the top of the mesa was at one
time inhabited.

rhe Worst Railway Disaster In th Bl

to Death la, th Burn
Ins Wreckage, '
New Castle, Col, Sept 11 The
worst wreck in the history of Colorado
occurred at 12:25 Friday morning on
the track of the Denver & Rio Grande
and the Colorado. Midland railways, one
and a half miles west of here. After 12
hours' work by the wrecking crews in
clearing away the debris and rescuing
the bodies of those who perished, it is
yet impossible to secure more than an
estimate of the loss of life, and not
even those known to be dead have been
identified. Many of the unfortunates
will never be known and it is possible
that the number killed will always be
in doubt From the best information
obtainable now fully 80 persons are be
lieved to have perished, while 185 were
taken out of the wreck suffering from
serious injuries.
The wreck was caused by a head-end
collision between a Denver & Rio
Grande passenger train running at the
rate of 40 miles an hour, and a special
Colorado Midland stock trafn running
at a speed of probably 80 miles. So
terrific 'was the concussion that both
engines, baggage and express cars,
smoker and day coaches and two
stock cars were totally demolished and
the track torn up for rods ia both di
rections. To add to the horror of the
scene, the wreck caught fire from an
explosion of a gas tank on the passen
ger train and burned so rapidly that
many passengers pinned Deneatn tne
debris were burned to death before
help could reach them. , '
The most generally accepted theory
as to the cause of the wreck seems to
be that Conductor Burbank, of the
Midland special, anticipating the time
of the passenger, undertook to "steal
a station" and beat the passenger into
New Castle. Burbank escaped unin
jured and has been placed under ar
rest by the sheriff. Midland Engineer
Ostrander is missing and a thorough
search all about his engine fails to re
veal any vestige of his remains.
General Superintendent Sample, of
the Denver & Rio Grande, soon reached
the scene, taking charge of the work
and removing the bodies. Ten bodies
were found in the ruins of one car and
four in another. The charred remains
of two women, apparently clasped in
each other's arms, were found. Their
heads and lower limbs were burned
off. In the dress bosom of each was
found a ladies' gold watch, upon one of
which was inscribed "From mother to
Mamie." . '
A Cry of Distress Come from Dawson
City, Where Hundreds of Adventurers
Are Face to Face with Famine.
Otter Point, B. C, Sept 11. The
steamer Cleveland has arrived from St
Michaels, bringing with her from the
Yukon gold fields a story of distress
and disaster at Dawson. The winter
has set in at the mining city and the
two great stores of the place have
closed their doors, for they have noth
ing to sell. Those who have Deen
seeking gold now must seek food or
Famine threatens the men and wom

flocking to Dawson. Threats of vio
lence are being made on every side.
Indignation meetings, heavy with
threats of vengeance, are held at St
Michaels by those with little hopes of
advancing up the river and less of get
ting bock to civilization.
The first signs of winter are appar
ent on the river Yukon, which is be
ginning to freeze and in a few weeks
will be closed. Enormous prices are
being paid for food at Dawson and it
is impossible that more than four ves
sels with provisions can reach Dawson
before the river is a mass of ice.

St Michaels, where they went to con
struct boats. The story of the fabu
lous wealth of the Klondike, Eldorado
and other mines tributary to the Yukon
is reiterated by the miners, but the
warning to stay away from the gold
field this - winter is emphasized by
every one on board. They say that
hundreds of people must go hungry
