A report from tho United States
naval station at Tutulln, Samonn
Islands, uniler ilato of November 24,
says: On November 1 '.ho Samonns
at tho western extremity ol the group
nt tho Island of Savall were atartled
by severe nliocks of earthquakes
which lusted throughout th6 night and
mqrnlng. Some of tho shocks were
severe enough to thir.w aown a con
crolo church nnd v:cok scvornl oth
ers. Then tiro was seen to burst forth
from sovernl of tho tuoiintnln peaks,
and tho people lied In teiror to places
they considered safe. These extinct
volcanoes, now active, aie toward tho
west of S-ivnll. Tindltlon speaks ot
a violent eruption about 150 years ago,
when lint poitlon of the country wna
a Mowing stream of molten lava, and
travolors l.uvo wondered at the extent
of tho eruption when they havo had
to walk over tho (leldo of waving lock
chilled no it llowod dowr. tho mountain
Bides towuul the sea.
Tho ill oh at jnesfiit nro observablo
at four pt-aku ot tho mountain rlugu
which form the backbone of tho
Island, and so long as tho disturbance
Is confined to that portion of the coun
try little harm can happen. It Is
stated that the other parts ot Samoa,
being of moro recent origin than Sn
vail, will not bo affected by tho out
burst. PiovIoiik to tho present outburst
tho only eruption known to tho peoplo
now living occurred between tho
Islands of Tan nnd Olocscga. tn tho
Manua portion of Snmoa, about thirty
flvo years ago, whon tho sen became
greatly agitated, sand and locks wero
thrown up, and tho Islnnd of Olocscga
became devastated through thn vapors
arising from tho ocean where tho dis
turbance took place. At tho same tlmo
millions of fit.li wero destroyed, but
tho bank then formed which has a
depth of water over It of thirty fath
oms, aud Is a favorite fishing ground
for tho peoplo of Mnnua now.

Thomns Brnckctt Heed wos born Oc
tober 18, 1839, in Portland, Mo., and
rocclvcd his cnily education In tho
common schools of that city. In 18C0
ho was graduated from Ilowdoln col

llsh composition, The next four years
woro spent by Mr. Iteed In tenching

mission to tho bar ho was appointed
acting assistant paymaster in tho
United States navy.
After his dlschnrgo In 18C5 Mr.
Hood returned to Portland, passed tho
bar and entered on tho practice of
his profession. Threo years later he
was elected as a Republican In tho
legislature of tho state of Maine. In
18C9 ho was re-elected to tho houso

In Soptember, 187G, ho was elected
to tho Forty-fifth congress of tho Unit

enmo prominent through n speech, one
of tho few formal ones over delivered
by him, In which ho argued against
tho paylment of damages bv tho Unit
ed States for Injuries received by
William nnd Mary collego at the
hands of United States troops durlnii
the wnr. Tho subsequent policy ot
the government In relation to wai
claims wns largely determined by tho
defeat of this measure, to which Mr.
Reed signally contributed. Ho wnn
also ono of tho minority members ap
pointed to Investigate tho election of
President Hayes In the famous Hayes
Tlldon controversy. Ills skill as n de

lnfluonco becoming more strongly
marked each year, tho leadership of
his party was finally conceded to him,
and In tho Forty-ninth and Fiftieth
congresses tho complimentary Bare

In tho Fifty-first congress, that par

A special to tho Salt Lake Herald
from Aspen, Colo., says: Tho rccont
slump In price of silver Is virtually a
disaster to this onco prosperous , city,
and has brought great distress to for
merly happy homes. At tho present
prlco of tho white mctnl not a mln
In tho camp can bo worked nt a profit,
nnd almost tho entire population ol
tho town must give up old associa
tions, many of thorn of a lifetime nd
seek other places to mnko n livelihood.
In this exodus, sons, daughters, par
ents and children must necessarily bo
separated, and there Is grcnt dejection
over tho prospect. Every outgoing
train carries peoplo who havo for
saken their homes hero, being unnblo
to soil them at any price, to seek
work or make a now start in lifo In
other sections of tho country. Aspen
has been known heretofore as the
greatest silver mining camp In tho
United States, and nt ono tlmo tho
greatest in tho world. Tho city Is sit
uated in a pretty valley surrounded by
threo huge mountains, which abound
In tho white metal which may novcr
boo the light of day. During tho bust
ling days of 1SS7 to 1893 Aspen
boasted of a population of 15,000, but
today scarcely 1,500 remain. After
tho panic of 1892-93 nnd until a fow
weeks ago, all of the largo properties
havo been worked under lenso and tho
miners mado a llttlo bettor than
wages, whllo silver was between GO
and CO cents an ounce.

has no deslro to unnecessarily hurry

Tho arbitrators aro dally receiving let
