German Training: Ship Founders Near Malaga—Fully 100 Are Drowned. Madrid, Dec. 17. —The German -train ing- frigate Gneisenan has foundered off Malaga, 65 miles east-northeast of Gibraltar. Private dispatches say that 40 persons were drowned. A large number of the cadets can be seen from the shore clinging to the rigging. They are shouting and sig naling for help. The captain and many of the cadets have been drowned. It is believed that 40 who left in one of the ship's boats and have not been seen since are also lost. The total loss is now thought to be no less than 100; some dispatches say 140. Forty of those saved are badly hurt. The training ship had been at Mal aga since November 1, practicing with guns of large caliber. She had been previously at Megador, Morocco. At ten o'clock Sunday morning a review of the cadets was in order. The wind was extremely violent, and instruc tions were given to stoke up as rapidly as possible. Put already mountainous waves had struck the ship, snapping the anchor chains. She was driven helpless toward the port and sank. The crew threw themselves into the sea and clung to the wreckage, but the majority quick ly disappeared. Capt. Kresthmann died at his post. The Malaga lifeboat made heroic efforts and rescued 15, but the weight capsized the boat and 12 were drowned. The other three were saved by means of ropes thrown to them. The port authorities saved many of the sail ors. A LAKE TRAGEDY. Two Women and n Man Meet Death on Lake Michigan—Story of Terrible Experience, Manitowoc. Wis., Dec. 17. —Adrift on Lake Michigan for 22 hours, lashed to a small boat with the dead bodies of his wife and her niece, was the terri ble experience of W. H. Shields, light house keeper of Squaw island, with his assistant, Owen McCauly. They ar rived here in the steamer Manhattan Sunday morning, having been picked up by that boat in the north channel of the island Saturday afternoon. Keeper Shields told the following story as he lay at Holy Family hos pital in this city: "We closed the station on Squaw Island Friday morning, and soon after I, with Mc- Cauly. Lucien Morden, the helper, Mrs. Shields and her niece, Mrs. Mary Davis, with a few belongings, embarked in a small sailboat for the mainland seven miles distant. When out but a short time the boat capsized. By hard work we all managed to reach the boat and lash the women to it. McCauly and myself also succeeded in doing the same, but Morden, who had become delirious, refused to do this and was soon afterward washed off and drowned. About ten hours after the capsizing my wife and her niece died from exposure. We drifted around the lake for hours, and at one time was within 50 feel of the mainland when the wind shifted, carrying us again into the lake. In this manner we passed Friday night, suffering untold agony, drifting and tossing around with high seas breaking over us until we were finally sighted by the steamer Man hattan. bound for Manitowoc.” A TOWN LOOTED. Five Men Lock Ip Town Marshal of Brighton, 111., Rob Fonr Stores and a Dank. St. Louis, Dec. 17. —Five unidenti fied men, garbed as tramps, who asked shelter in the calaboose at mid night Friday, overpowered the village marshal of Brighton, 111., locked him in a cell, and then broke into a bank and two stores. They attempted to get into the vault of Blodgett Bros.’ bank, in which there was a large amount of money, but were unsuccess ful, although the strong box was partially wrecked by several explo sions of dynamite. Failing there, the robbers entered the general store of E. Butler, where they broke into the safe and secured SIOO. Soon after en tering another store, Butler’s store was discovered on fire. Before the flames were subdued a loss of several thousand dollars resulted. The rob bers then escaped on a hand car. When the marshal was liberated he organized a posse and started after the robbers with bloodhounds. Brigh ton is a village of 1,000 inhabitants, northeast of Alton, 111. A POISON MYSTERY.

There they go!’ “Ten minutes later we stepped out to find one man lying on the ground with two bul lets in him and some people carrying away a second with half a dozen. “ ‘Dog fights are bewtiful affairs,’ said the colonel, as we walked away together, ‘but the safest way to see one in Kentucky is to wait till it’s all over and the dead carried off.’” Time to Go Sonfit.
