GENERAL GARCIA IS EN ROUTE TO CUBA. The Veteran Leader Will Command an Army of Patriots. EVADES THE SPANIARDS. He Leaves for the Island at the Head of a Formidable Expedition. ARMS, AMMUNITION AND MEN. An Invaluable Addition to the Re sources of the Struggling Insurgents. PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Jan. 26.-A tnorning paper says to-day: General Cal ixto Garcia, the most distinguished Cuban general now outside of Cuba, has escaped the watchful eyes of Spanish agents and Bailed from this port last Thursday, it is said, on the fruit steamer Bernard, bound for Cuba. General Garcia goes to Cuba at the head of the most formidable expedition that has ever left this country, of which he will take command on the high seas, where he ■will meet another fruit steamer, the Jasof, with over 300 men on board and a large quantity of arms and ammunition. From those familiar with General Gar cia's plans it was learned that the expedi tion will make for some port near the boundary line of the province of Pinar del Rio and the province of Havana. General Gomez is thoroughly informed of all the plans for the expedition, and at the point agreed upon for the landing of the expedi tion he will have a strong body of troops. Owing to his great popularity in that district, it is expected that General Garcia will at once place himself at the head of a strong body of men in the province of Pina del Rio. Among Cubans in this country great hope is placed in this expedition. One of the drawbacks of the Cuban cause has been the lack of commanders who com bine both bravery and military sagacity. Should any misfortune befall either Gen eral Maximo Gomez or Generals Jose or Antonio Maceo, the Cubans' cause would, be in a rather embarrassing position. General Garcia, however, is fully com petent to take any of the generals' places at a moment's notice, and when news of j the successful landing of his expedition I reaches this country, there will be rejoic- | ing among the Cubans. CAPTURE A TRAIX. Rebels Destroy the Coaches After Alloxe- ing the Passengers to Depart. HAVANA, Cuba, Jan. 26.— insur gents, despite the Government assertions to the contrary, appear to be doing just about as they please in the neighborhood of Havana. This afternoon a band of rebels stopped a train that was running between Guanajay and this city. They ordered the passen gers, who were in a state bordering on panic, to leave the train, which order was obeyed with alacrity. The passengers feared they would be maltreated by the insurgents, but their fears were groundless, as the rebel leader courteously informed them that they would not be harmed, nor would their per sonal effects be molested. They would, however, have to pursue their journey on foot, as it was their intention to destroy the train. The commander then gave orders for the torch to be applied to the cars, and soon nothing was left except the iron work. The train was captured about a mile from San Antonio, to which place the passengers walked and informed the authorities of what had occurred. Troops were immediately dispatched to the scene, but when they arrived the rebels had disappeared. The train did not have one of the armored cars which are used. on the railroads for the conveyance of troops to guard the passengers and the railway company's property. A car for this purpose is being built on the Havana and Guanajay line and as 6oon as it is finished, which will be shortly, it will be placed in service. Pass engers on the line will then be able to travel in security, unless the insurgents take to removing rails, loosening fish plates or adopting some other method to wreck the trains. It is, however, not believed that they ■Kill do this, as their efforts are not directed toward harming passengers on the rail wrys. but to destroying railroad property when it can be done without risk to pas sengers. ♦ MINOR ENGAGEMENTS. i General Munoz Encounters the Rands of Rabi and Rios. WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 26.—Min ister Dupuy de Lome to-day received tele grams from Havana giving . accounts of several engagements between the Spanish troops and insureents, all but one of which are of minor importance. In that case General Gonzales Munoz encountered the bands of Francisco Rabi and Rios in the Mula Pass and succeeded in putting them to flight. The casualties were not given. It is explained that the importance and significance of this encounter lies in the fact tnat whereas Rabi and Rios were re ported to be approaching Havana to re enforce Gomez, they were encountered by Munoz in the most easterly portion of the island, several hundred miles distant from Havana. .

Attempt of a Woman to End Her Husband's Life Foiled by a Servant Girl. ERIE, Pa., Jan. 26.— A sensation oc- c urred this afternoon at Girard.this county, when Mary H. Nellis was arrested for I poisoning with intent to kill her husband, Peter 11. Nellis, proprietor of the Nellis ; House, and Edward Gardner was arrested as an accomplice. The prisoners were brought here to-night and lodged in jail. Nellis is wealthy and his wife is a hand- some woman. Last summer Mrs. Nellis spent some time at Lilydale and brought home with her for a bartender Edward Gardner, whom she had met at the spirit ualistic resort. Nellis carried a $10,000 policy on his life in favor of his wife. Sev eral weeks ago he was taken sick. He has since been in declining health, and his brother-in-law, Dr. Rogers, of Connaught, Ohio, became suspicious and set Maggie Hulbrook, a dining-room girl, to keep watch on events in the hotel. Saturday at noon Nellis got a dose of j tartar emetic in his coffee. Saturday night tne girl caught and saved another i dose which Nellis was to have taken. j Nellis got another dose to-day, but was re j lieved with a stomach-pump. The arrests i followed and created great excitement. 1 The feeling was so strong in Girard against j Gardner that only his timely removal by ! the officers saved him from probable j lynching. 7Y: - MASSACRED BY YAQUIS.

The Measure Is Certain to Pass the Senate, but May Run Aground in the House. FRANKFORT, Ky.. Jan. 26.— Senator Goebel's bill repealing the charter of the Southern Pacific Company has not yet been returned in printed form, but will probably be to-morrow, when it will be re ferred to the Committee on Railroads, of which Senator Goebel is himself a member. The bill is likely to be advanced rapidly, and may be put upon its passage in the Senate early next week. It is said the road will make a strong fight to defeat the repealing measure, but indications are that it will pass the Senate easily. The difficulty it is most likely to encounter is in being run aground in the House on account of overshadowing politi cal complications in that branch. DIES IN A POORHOUSE. Benjamin Folger, Once the Beau Brummel of Memphis Society, Passes Away in Poverty. CHICAGO. 111., Jan. 26.— A special from Memphis, Term., says: Benjamin Folger, a nephew of the late Charles Folger, who was Secretary of the Treasury under Ar thur's administration, died in the poor house here yesterday, aged 60 years. Ben Folger, as he was familiarly known, was at one time one of the most promi nent bankers and financiers in the coun try, but he took to speculating a few years ago and his fortune speedily disappeared. He went from bad to worse until he finally landed in the poorhouse. Ten years or more ago he was recoenized as he Beau Brummel of Memphis society, and was the king in all social affairs.

He subsequently went to Axenstein, Switzer land, for the purpose of " taking -an after cure. '7*;i7'7> ...■ ■ -..-. Since that time, however, he has mani fested great activity in the' discharge of the duties of his olfice, which have been more than ;. usually onerous on account of the complications :in European ■ affairs, which have more or less demanded the attention and care of the diplomatic repre sentatives of ail nations. v . 7 Embassador Runyon's death will- come as a great shock to official- and social cir cles here in Berlin, where he was a great favorite. . . . - The Hon.

The St. Paul Dragged From Its Cradle in the Sand. CHECKED BY THE TIDE. Considerable • Progress Is Made Before the Ebb Stops'-: the Work. EFFECTING ITS OWN RESCUE. The Greyhound Draws Itself Seaward by Means of Hawsers Attached to Anchors. LONG BRANCH, N. J., Jan. 26.— thousand visitors from the numerous re sorts north and south of this place, as well as from New York, Philadelphia and the larger New Jersey towns, flocked here to day and repaired to the beach to watch the efforts made to pull the steamer St. Paul, the famous ocean greyhound, over the bar -into deep water. The ship was moved 170 feet seaward, but the flood tide was not of sufficient duration to enable the crews of the steamer and the wrecking companies to haul her into water deep enough to float her. There were fifty pow erful tugs opposite the St. Paul ready to render assistance, but they were not utilized. Six immense anchors were planted in the sea about a thousand yards from the stranded vessel. Fastened to the anchors were several steel hawsers, which were connected with the powerful capstan on the -,' stern of the ship. This capstan was rotated by steam power furnished by the steamer's boilers and engines. Everything was in readiness for the haul and soon after midnight the engines were started. The hawsers ' tightened, the capstan creaked, and inch by inch the big ship was pulled seaward. When the tide turned to ', the ebb the boat had been moved nearly one-third of her length and placed in a more advantageous position, as at low tide she was only six feet in the sand and in eleven ! feet of water. The strain on the hawsers. was kept up moder ately during the day in order to keep the ship from again moving toward the beach. No attempt was made to float her while the afternoon tide was at the flood. Those in . charge predict that to-mor row's high tides will be higher than that of ; to-day, and- with favorable conditions they, expect to complete the work begun so auspiciously last night. The sea was almost as- quiet to-day as the proverbial mill | pond. This state of affairs caused the life-saving crews to remove from the ship the line thrown to her when strand ed, which - was ' used ; , to run the breeches buoy to and from the liner. Messrs. Clement A. Griscom, senior and junior, of Philadelphia, president .and manager, respectively, of the Interna tional ': Navigation Company; "William Cramp, a member of the firm that built the St. Paul; Marine Superintendent Shockford and other high * officials of the American line visited the unlucky ship and spent hours in consultation with Cap tain Jamison and his 'staff. 7 They gave out no ] official ■■ statement for publication, but the petty • officers strongly deny that the St. Paul - was engaged iln a race with the Campania prior to the accident. This story is not generally believed, as Captain James Mulligan of life station No. 4, who was - the first ] to 7 board . the ship in the breeches buoy on Saturday morning, states that 'the first question • put to him by "the passengers when he stepped foot on the deck was, "Where ■is the Campania?" ' All the passengers of the ' St. Paul , were taken to I New York in tugs late yesterday afternoon, but the entire crew, numbering 400, including 7 many women, remain ■_ on THE SAN JOSE LOCAL WRECKED NEAR BADEN board, and have not come ashore since the St. Paul struck. , ? . * The steamer carried a cargo of fruits, nuts, gold and general merchandise. Early this morning the ligbter John Hag gerty was floated to the shoreward side of the vessel, and the crew of the latter, as sisted by the wreckers, transferred hun dreds of tons of tbe cargo from the steam er's side to the lighter. The baggage and perishable goods were first moved. These were taken to New* York. The large amount of the precious metal was not dis turbed, but remains in a strong box on board the steamer in charge of a^guard of picked men. ; ' * The officers of the St. Paul deny the re port that the vessel was injured when she struck. They say there is no water in her hold and her plates are just as intact as th« day she was launched. . One of tne novel features of the day was the rigging of a telephone on board the boat to connect with the shore. The shore end is connected with the local tele phone system, and by this means the ship* s officers are able to communicate with their agents in the city. The scene on Ocean avenue in front of tho beached steamer resembled a county fair; improvised lunch rooms, cigar stands and traveling "speakeasies" furnished food and drink to the multitude. On the portico of one of the big summer hotels, now closed, was a large sign read ing: "Seats to Let," and the enterprising man in charge reaped a harvest of shekels. The local railroad from Asbury Park to Long Branch carried thousands of passen gers. Farmers from a distance of twenty miles drove to the scene of the accident, and mingled with the fashionably dressed visitors from the city. ".>•';' At 9 o'clock to-night Custom-house Of ficer Patterson telephoned from the St. Paul that a determined effort would be made at 5 a. m. to-morrow to pull the ship from her cradle in the sand. Mr. Patter son said the attempt would doubtless be a failure, unless a wind from the east was blowing that would make the tide extra high. | REPLACED BY THE ST. Z.OUIS. The Sister Ship to Make the Rxtn for the Stranded Greyhound. PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Jan. 26.— ■St. Louis, sister ship of the St. Paul, will leave Cramp's shipyard at 7 o'clock to morrow for New York and will take the St. Paul's place for the present on the American line. | The St. Louis came here Tuesday night to have her smokestacks enlarged. Considerable progress had been made in the work necessary to remove the stacks when orders were received early Saturday morning to stop the work of alterations, followed by directions to put the vessel in condition for sea at once. By keeping large forces of men at work Saturday, and Saturday night j the * partly , dismantled stacks were ; put in proper shape by this morning and what remained to be done to put the vessel in order - for ' sea was ac complished during the day. WRECKED OFF SEABRIGHT. The British Ship Foyte Crashes Onto the Rocks and Fills. NEW YORK. N. V., Jan. 26.— The British ship Foyle of London, from Cal cutta September 23 for New York with a general cargo, lies aground in the Horse shoe, directly off the old railroad dock at Sandy Hook. She has about six feet of water in the hold. She struck upon the Shrewsbury rocks off Seabright about 9 o'clock last night, but finally floated off and was towed in by the Merritt Coast Wrecking Company's steamer and beached in the Horseshoe. The crew had • been at the pumps for fifteen days. The wreckers will take out some of the cargo and pump her out. ABYSSINIANS ARE ACTIVE King Menelik's Force Meditating an Invasion of the Tigre Country. Humbert Signs a Decree Declaring Erythrea to Be in a State of War. v ROME, Italy, Jan. 26.— A dispatch from Massowah says that a 7 messenger has arrived at the camp of General Bara tieri, the commander of the Italian forces, bringing letters from Menelik, King of the Abyssinians, jto King Humbert and General Baratieri. Colonel Galliano, commander of the Italian forces recently compelled to evac uate . the town of Makelle, after a long siege by the Abyssinians, has not yet ar rived at General Baratieri's camp. It is reported that \ Colonel Galliano exploded the magazine and blew up the fortress at Makelle upon leaving the town. It is reported that the Abyssinian chiefs are angry at the release of the garrison by King Menelik, as they believe they would have eventually forced the Italians to sur render unconditionally. It is said that the Abyssinian array is disposed to march on in the State of Tigre. King Humbert, signed a decree this morning declaring the province of Erythrea to be in a state of war. . It is not expected that a peace can be arranged with King Menelik without giving him battle. The dispatch to Massowah ; of reinforcements, munitions, cannons and shells continues.

Train No. 19, which runs to San Jose and way stations, left this City at 's:3o o'clock on time and ran at its usual speed to Baden station. Here a red lantern the signal of danger — was swung in front of the speed ing engine to warn the engineer that some thing was wrong down the road, but though the train slowed down to some extent it did not do so sufficiently to avert a disaster and ' the engineer's life went out in the flood that filled the basins on each side of the track. The fireman and conductor of the train were also badly hurt. The terrific rains of yesterday afternoon sent torrents of water down the little valley that leads from Colma to Baden, each canyon adding its volume to the flood until the flume recently built by the Supervisors of San Mateo County to pro tect the county road was filled to over flowing and the lowlands were covered many feet deep. : Below the pumping station at the Baden artesian wells the flat that in the morning had been merely a marsh, covered with an inch or two or water, became a river six or eight feet deep, rushing with terriffic force toward the bay, carrying fences and bulkheads away and driving the cattle to the higher ground. The railroad at this point is built on an embankment, which crosses the marsh to South- San Francisco station and divides the flat into two parts. The culverts were totally inadequate to carry away the water and it gradually in creased in volume until it overflowed the embankment and began undermining the track. Once the water crossed the rails it ate its way into the foundations and carried mud, stone and even ties with the ••oaring torrent that rushed down the north side of the embankment. • The train from the south, which passes South San . Francisco at 4:30 o'clock, crossed the dangerous portion in safety, but within an hour the roadbed was so in secure that even a pedestrian could not pass without picking his steps carefully for fear of falling into the rushing waters on either side. • V, -.-•". ■:;/.- The employes at Baden and South San Francisco knew nothing of the danger until the train had plunged into, the water and the roar of the escaping steam warned them that something had occurred. Then messengers and danger signals were sent both ways to warn approaching trains of the disaster. • The scene on board the wrecked|local was almost indescribable.

Most women do not understand their own bodies, or the things that make them weU or sick. The most frequent cause of sick- ness in women is the cause last looked for. A women will go to a doctor when she has a severe cold, or some acute digestive dis- turbance, but she hesitates and procrasti- nates when the trouble is with the distinctly feminine organism. And yet the latter is infinitely more serious. It is the most seri- ous sickness that any woman can have. It is the most dreadful— the most dangerous. Its consequences are always serious, and serious right at the beginning because it is debilitating. It saps the life and strength and works on th-: nerves to such an extent that the whole body is disturbed. Appetite leaves, the color goes from the face and hollows sink into the cheeks. Irritability succeeds good temper and fretfulness takes the place of contentment Little by little life becomes . more and more miserable. The woman is killing herself with neglect just as surely as if she were taking deadly poison. Perhaps her husband cannot per- suade her to go to her doctor, because she naturally dreads the inevitable examina- tions and "local treatments." He can per- suade her, if she needs persuasion, to take Dr. : Pierces Favorite Prescription. This truly wonderful medicine has cured hun- dreds of women after the best physicians have failed.
