Terrible Tale of Cruelty Re
lated by the Sailors of
the Ship Hecla.
Seriote Political Riot, in Which

The Famous RawsonJ Case Set
tled in Chicago—Minor
TACOMA, W. T., NOV. 0.—Sixteen sail
ors of tlie ship Hecla, which arrived here
yesterday, loaded with wheat for Great
Britain, entered suit in the district court
against "apt Snow, of that vessel, for
cruelty. They allege that the Hecla
.started Cor Cardiff, Wales, with a crew
of sixteen nu n. After she had been out
but a short time the captain began feed
ing his men on rotten meat and potatoes,
which were not fit to eat, and both Capt.
Snow and his mate shamefully abused
the sailors. While near Cape Horn Capt.
.Snow attacked the carpenter, breaking
Lis jaw and knocking out many teeth.
A few days later he nearly killed one of
the men. AVIien debilitated by the poor
food they were unable to work and every
sailor was put into the hold and tied in
such a manner that he could neitlier
stand nor sit nor lie down, and in that
position was kept for forty-eight hours.
One of tlie men was tied to a stanchion
four days without food. During t^is
time his scant rations were placed within
sight, but out of his reach. When the
Hecla reached Acapulco the men were
weak from ill treatment and insufficient
food. The brutal captain, with the aid
of Mexican titops, cast them into a dun
geon and kept them coniined until the
vessel was ready to sail. The men ap
pealed to the United States consul at
Acapulco, but were unable to obtain any
assistance from that quarter. The case
will come up to-day. The captain re
fuses to pay the money due the men for
their services on the trip from Cardiff,

Insane Through Fright,
BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis., Nov. 6.—
Ignatse Kilcic, a Russian about 20 years
of age, has been committed to the insane
asylum at Madison. Investigation shows
his insanity to have been caused by
fright, occasioned by being waylaid by
highwaymen. Kilcic about one month
ago left the camp where he was em
ployed with $100 in gold, which he was
going to use to purchase a ticket to his
Russian home. It was at this time he
was waylaid and robbed. Fright and
disappointment caused his insanity.

SaekvlU* Letter Genuine
Son of St. George
He Think* the
LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 6.—Hon. Patrick
Egan, ex-president of the Irish National
League of America, said to a State
Journal reporter: "I am convinced that
the reason Lord Sackville gave liis ad
vice so candidly in reply to the Murch
ison letter is this: There is extending
all over America a society of recent for
mation called the Sons of St. George,
bound together by an ironclad oath, and
having for its objects the promotion in
this country of English interests, the
maintenance of friendly relations with
what they are pleased to call the mother
country and the most watchful and
malignant hostility towards everything
Irish on this continent. I have seen the
constitution, ritual and oath of the Sons
of St. George and I perceive that the
Murchison letter conveys distinctly
throughout its phraseology that it comes
from a member of the society. The
British minister of course recognized
this and felt that he was communicating
with one of the brotherhood who—as the
letter clearly conveys—wanted the in
formation for the special guidance of the
members of the society on the Pacific
slope. He had, therefore, no hesitation
in writing fully and frankly his own
sentiments and those of his government
as regarded the friendliness of President
Cleveland and his administration toward
British interests. I have no knowledge
of Mr. Murchison or of the authorship of
his letter, but I have good reason to be
lieve that what I have stated is the true
explanation of Minister West's reply."
Seventeen Men Killed by Gas
Explosion in a Pennsyl
Forty Bodies of the Eighty Vic

Terrific Explosion of a Nitrogly
cerine Factory—Daily Work
of the Grim Reaper.
LOCK HAVEN, Pa., Nov. 6.—There was
an explosion Saturday night in the
Kettle Creek Coal Mining company's
mines, thirty miles west of this city,
which were but recently opened. The
explosion occurred in anew drift in
which twenty-one persons were at work.
As soon as possible after the explosion
the mine was entered and fifteen bodies
were carried out and four others badly
injured wefe found, one of whom has
since died and the othei'3 are likely to
die. The cause of the explosion is un
known, but it is supposed to have been
the striking of a fissure or pocket of
gas. Sunday afternoon the naked and
disfigured body of a miner was found
fifty feet from the mouth of the air
shaft, througli which it had been blown.
Many rumors are going the rounds as
to the cause of the explosion, and among
them is one that the direct cause of the
explosion was the inexperienced use of
dynamite in ftie mines. In a blacksmith
shop near the scene of the disaster laid
the charred and unrecognizable remains
of August Pierson. who was blown out
through the air shaft fifty feet in the
air, and some of his clothes can be seen
hanging to a limb of a large tree near
by. Next to him is Mike Currens, who
was blown 200 feet out of the mouth of
the mine and was found dead in a ditch
still clinging to the handle of his shovel.
Beside him lay P. F. Donley, who was
also blown out of the mine. Then in a
row are Samuel Killinger, Charles
Almon, John Carlsen, John Anderson,
Peter Plutoo and others, whose names
can not be learned.
A NITRO GLYCERINE EARTHQUAKE.

Shaken ly the Kxplosion of the Shaun'o

PITTSBURG, Nov. 6.—A terrific explo
sion of nitro glycerine occurred about
4:30 a. m. in the Delaware-Torpedo Com
pany's store house at Shannopin, the
well known oil and gas field, some seven
teen miles southeast of this city. Three
men are said to have been killed, but
later reports do not confirm this. The
telegraph and telephone lines were torn
down by the explosion and details of the
affair are difficult to secure. It is re«
ported that quite a numbar of well
nouses were destroyed, besides some
shanties occupied by well-drillers.
The force of the explosion was terrific,
being felt in this city and Alleghany and
for twenty miles around. At points
along the Ohio river, including Sewick
ley and other boroughs there was a panic
among the people and many of them
rushed out of their houses in their night
clothes under the impression that they
had experienced a shock from earth
quake. In some instances glass was
broken in houses ten or twelve miles
distant from the scene of the explosion.
The explosion was caused by a tramp
trying to force an entrance to the maga
zine at a door. The tramp was blown to
atoms and only the smallest fragments
of his body have been found.

South Windham. It was soon learned
that the powder mills at Gambo, about
two miles distant, belonging to the Ori
ental Powder company, had been blown
to atoms. There were four buildings,
one kernel mill and three wheel mills.
The explosion originated in the kernel
mill, but how is not known. There was
only a fraction of a second between the
explosion of the kernel mill and those of
the other three. There were only two
men in the mills at the time, and bath of
them were fatally hurt.

meagre until after midnight and as the

For treasurer and register of deeds the
contest is very close and the official vote
will probably be necessary to decide the
latter. The democratic ballots were thick
er than ever before known in Stutsman
county. Gilford's majority of 212 two
years ago will be replaced with about 1(K)
democratic majority this year. Hender
son for the council,has received 202 votes
so far. These votes were nearly all
drawn from Glaspeil and are about the
number he falls behind Farrell. For
members of the house, the democratic
ticket will carry the county by a majori

In the darkness over head is now
heard each evening the clamorous cries
of the late Mr. Hiawatha's wa wa. The
confused sounds and their varying direct
ion indicate plainly enough that the
usual self possession of the birds has
been badly wrecked. The electric lights
of the city no doubt, tend to disturb and
dazzle the ansers optics, for their flight
is marked with much shrill wonder
ment expressed in their voices.
The Canada goose is always a level
headed bird, besides being one of the
most elegant in feather trappings and in
form. He is graceful and confident on
the wing and even on land his move
ments are easy and dignified. His long
trumpet like neck, black and slender, the
well proportioned head with throat latch
of white adds to his high bred carriage.
The white brant, the most numerous
in this vicinity, is a scrub and dotard
besides its aristocratic relative, although
his apparel is equally fine in its
way. The jet black tips of the wings,
the only shade of color in th* fine white
plumage of this bird, are very curious
and striking. But the head is lumpish
and coarse and indicates instantly the
inferiority of its feathered possessor in
bird intelligence. The white brant re
sembles the common domestic goose. It
winters in the extreme south along the
shores of the gulf and in the warm
waters of the rivers and ponds there. On
its migrations it seldom or never stops
in the interior of the country. The
Canada goose travels more|leisurely, how
ever, and is to be seen feeding at all
points on its southern trip. They return
to their breeding haunts in the far north
early in the spring.
