ances these have all been drowned with
the excerption of the twenty-si.v. The liv
ing will be scntnortli as soon ns possible,
and seventeen have already taken pass
age for San Francisco. The accident is
j.he most .frightful in its loss of life which
Jias occurred in Mexican waters, and the
Golima is a complete loss, unless some
uf its cai'go can be recoverod by divers,
wliich will pre hard ybe attempted. Tho

SAN" FRANCISCO, May 31. —An Exam
iner special from the City of Mexico
Official dispatches received today bear
out the main tacts of the sinking of the
steamer Colima, as in the special dis
patch to the Examiner from the city of
Colima, via this city, with but the ex
ception that the wreck occurred below
Uio port and/m'tho south.hound journey,
Instead of at the harbor entrance.
Up to today the difficulty of getting
messages ovor the wires from the west
coast was unprecedented.
George Herbert .manager of the Manza
nillo and Colima railroad, wires your
Correspondent tonight that it is thought,
the passengers rescued by the Romero
UiLbel.i belong to tbe family of S. Frol,
and that the Pacific Mail continues its
efforts to rescue all possible, and do
every humane service within its power.
The Romero has found at scene of
the wreck the body of an unknown
woman, wlro is apparently of Mexican
origin. Mr. Herbert says the ifaracouta
sailed yesterday from Acapulco to do like
service under orders from the govern
ment. All mail for Colima has been
lost. Mr. Herbert's dispatch says:
Later reports place the scene of the
wreck thirty miles southeast of Man
zanillo and ten to lifteen miles off the
shore at Boca de Alica and is now so lc
ported. One woman, a Guatemalan, was
saved and returned to San Francisco by
the San J nan.
Many Inquiries have been received in
this city regarding the safety of individ
ual passengers, hut all the saved appear
to be in tho list heretofore sent.
Professor Whiting of California is ev
idently among the drowned, as diligent
search has revealed nothing of his where
abouts Up to tonight.
The forebodings of friends of tho pas
sengers and crew of the Colima were ex
ceedingy gloomy this morning and few
cherished any hope of the survival of
those hitherto unaccounted for. The Pa
cilic Mail Steamship company declared
that it had rcceivod absolutely no word
from the scene of the disaster. Mrs. C.
H< dishing, mother of tho two young
men who were passengers, received a
message from the son ptckid up by ihe
San Juan dated Mazatlan, as follows:
"Am here returning on San Juan."
Later in tho afternoon it message was
received by Mrs. Peters, whoso son Louis
was a passenger for Guatemala. Tho tol
cgram was dated Guatemala, and is un
signed and it is presumed! to bo from
Mrs. Peters' husband, who resides in
Guatemala. It was as follows: "Louis
ia safe on the Barracoota." A nothcrn
dispati'h to a private shipping linn from
Guatemala states that Ihe steamer Bar
racouta, woich has been cruising about
the scene of the wreck in search of sur
vivors, has picked up a rait with nine
passengers from the Colima, Teters being
among the number. Tho Barracouta has
not yet put into port, but the Pacific Mail
Officials suggest that the steamer probably
signaled a smaller vessel which put into
port to convey the news of the rescue to
the nearest town and thence telegraphed
to Guatemala. The latest details received
here up to .', o'clock are contained ir. the
following message:
COMMA, Mexico, May .11.—Six surviv
ors of the steamer Colima have arrived
here. They'aie John Thurtton, J. K.

They are said to have reached shore on
a raft, and another raft with live men is

ors stale that the women and children
wore ail in tho state rooms and all went
down with the steamer. Tho survivors
also report that Purser Waiter was seen in
a well-manned boat pulling away from
tho sinking steamer towards shore. It is
supposed that this boat is still afloat.
SANTA CP.UZ, May 31.—1 iis thought
hero that C. L, Colridge.who is reported
among the missing from the Colima, was
a former lesident of this city. Ho is a
printer and was for years employed in
the Sentinel oflice.
Pacific Mail Steamship company is
severely censured for overlooking loading
and bad placing of the .largo on the Col
ima, to which is attributed the rapid
sinking of tne steamer.

where programmes are secretly arranged,

Crookedness Charged in the Famous Chicago
Road Race
CHICAGO, May 31.—A mammoth scan
dal today ended tho career of the world
famous Chicago road race. Sworn state
ments made today put nearly 10 per cent
,of tho participants in tho so-called race
|on record as contemptible sneaks. How
[ many more ot the remainder of tue
"racers' will go into the same class is
yet to be determined.. It was awl olo
sale traud on a scale probably never be
foro equalled in the history of cycling
races, or, for that mattei, Li races of any
The trouble in brief is that this year
tho race was not a straieht-away.and that
! the (50 contestants literally by dozens and
I scores deliberately cut the course instead
I of going round the full turn at Evaaston.
It is claimed only thirty-one of tho first
100 to finish, among whom was tho w in
ner, Homer Fairman, were noted as hav
ing passed the limit mark at Kvanstoti,
and that no note was ever made of the
other sixty-nine men at that point. Tho
fellows not in the first handicap are sup
posed to have done even worse.
Aside from the scandal in regard to tho
race an a whole, Ileferee Thomas F. Sher
idan bad his hands full today receiving
protests from tho riders against the
Bwading of prizes to Fairman and Emor
on, the lirst prize and time prize winners,
respectively. It now looks as if neither
of these men will be given the place
which was assigned to tnem yesterday.
However Fairman may oomo out, it is
almost certain Emerson will be disquali
fied. All the testimony shows that Em
erson did not rirle the course.

out a trial at la,v. The tirst proposition
I contemplated the retirement of the four
I executors under the stolen will upon
i payment to three of them of $100,000 and
to Attorney GoodfelloW $26,000. This
| proposition, it is said, was rejected by
1 Oelrichs but the second suggested by
the executors was approved by Senator

That all contests ho withdrawn and the

Sequel to a Romance That Originated In a
Dive In the l ittle Town ol
•SAN JOSE.May 31.—Lord Sholto Doug,
las and Loretta Addis, the Bakarstielei
divu waitress, were married this after
noon by a justice of the peace, and left at
6 o'clock for San Francisco.
Lord Sholto Douglass. Miss Yda Addig
and their mutual friend, F. H. Robert
son, an insurance man of 1030 Mission
street, San Francisco, carucjto this city
from San Francisco this forenoon. Short
ly after their arrival they went to that
oflice of tho co.mty clerk, where a mar
riage license, was procured. The party
then proceeded to tho court room of
Township Justice Dwyer aud request*!
hint to perform tho cerejmny which
would unite his lordship to the littla
actress with whom he was infatnated.
Lord Sholto had.'on a cheap checked,
suit, and his appearance betokened that
the world had not heen treating him
kindly of late. He was very awkward
and very quiet, und the aff&ir seemed to
be under the managornent of Robertson,
who has been acting as both Ins banker
and adviser for some time past. He gave)
his age as L'li years.
Miss Yda Addis, however, did not
share tho spirits of her intended, anil
acted in a vivacious manner while in
court. She was attired in a plain black:
dress.and no one would have guessed.from
her garb that she wag about to niaery a
lord. She looked to be about 25 years old,
but the license stated that she was but
18. She gave her real name as Miss L.
M. Mooney, Yua Addis being v Dame
used only on show hills. She did not
come up to Sholto's shoulders, andithey,
made an odd-looking couple.
The ceremony was duly performed, and
at its close the bride turned to her newly
made husband and said jubilantly: "It ■
all over now. Kiss nae, dear," and Sholto
aw kwardly compile?!.
There Was no display erf wealth in any
way. and it oven required a reminder
from tbe justice heforo there was any
movement made toward paying tbe usual
fee. Then Douglas reluctantly drew out
his purse and orought forth $3, the open
ing of his pu.se disclosing the fact that
he possessed $00.
Tne patty wanted the affair kept secret,
Robertson ' stating that he expected tb«
couple would be pursued by policemen
and bulldogs, lor what he failed to state.
'1 be trio went from the court room to
the depot, ostensibly to return to San
