ROME. Oct 24 At 6 o'clock this
evening about 200 bodies were taken
from the earthquake ruins in Calabria. 1
It is now estimated that the deaths
; will surpass 500, but it is impossible
to get accurate information on this
[subject, as many villages are still cut;
off by the floods and the destruction;
of roads and telegraph lines, and no
word from them can be had.
' The earthquakes continue; but they
j sj-e slight. The people arc still in a
condition of apprehension, which is in
j creased by each tremor. In spite of the
torrential rain that is falling, they ab
solutely refuse to remain under any
cover. They have made their beds in
the open. Mattresses have been spread
about the squares and the fields sur
rounding the stricken villages, and the j
• people are covering themselves and
I their children as best they may.
Many thousands \r:ll pass the night
In this manner. The only huildings |
that the frightened people will consent
to use are the church-.:?, and even there j
they will not stay lonjr. Facred relics
have been exposed in the r-^tbedral of
Catanzaro and this served in a measure
to calm the population. \u25a0 _

The details received here during the
day regarding: ttic earthquake in Cala
bria yesterday -in every way tend to
sho-w that the damage done was much'
more extensive tTian at first estimated.
The first shock' fortunately brought'
s^ the entire population of the " villages
'Into 'the 'open, many succeeding in^
making ' their escape* to the hills or!
To Bd*s to *hw desolation csiuFrd by'
the earthquake it was raining in tor
rent? v^Fterday,' which grcatlv in- 1
creased the suffering among the home
less rr-ople.
Half the bouses at Fcruzzano and
Brane&leone. collapsed and many per
rons were buried in the ruins and at,
ESnopoll and Stellario more lives are!
said to have been lost. Panic pre
vailed ever> where.
Half the bouF"»s of the village of
Gerace are 1n ruins and similar condi
tion* prevail in a numh«r '<if other]
points in ' Calabria. T"jrlng the con
fusion, caueiM by the first earthquake
the prisoner* in the jail at Catanzaro!
mutinied and jrere only subdued with
grreat difficulty* The female prisoners
Were particularly alarmed, screaming.
ehoutlrg and beaming the door* until
the whole place was in a terrible up
roar. The prison officials did every
thing possible to calm the inmates, but
they broke .out afresh every time an
other earth shock was experienced.
The. cathedral at Towre Dl Ge Race
\u25a0web thrown down, as was an ancient
tower which had withstood all the
earthquakes for centuries. The con
fusion caused by the earthquake was ;
Increased by a mutiny of the prisoners
in the Cstanzaro jail, which was sub
dued "frith, difficulty. The troops sent
with the relief trains to the scene of
the disaster bad a calming effect on
the population.
Only two days ago the finance min
leter inaugurated two entirely new
villages in Calabria, which had .been
built by the relief committee of Milan
for the victims of the < earthquake of'
IPOS. These villages withstood the
chock, which was to severe in the,
southern end of the peninsula that half
the houses at Ferruzzano and Branca
leone collapsed and buried many per- ;
aons in. the ruins. At Sinopoli end Sti- ;
lario sevefLl 'persons were buried and !
everywhere panic prevailed.'.*;
Rocolla, Reggio, Cosanca. Baraodio,
Cittanova, Palmi, Gerace, Marina and
other towns suffered, but not severely.

"I stand to lose, $1,000,000 in tlie
state.: of " Nevada* as "a result of tlie
financial \ stress.'' ,said , Thomas B.
Rickey yesterday, -"but ; I do not be
lieve I will lose a single dollar. I don't
believe anybody is going to lose any
thing unless the entire country; goes
plumb to smash. All we ; want _? is ra
little time to ' adjust : our : affairs and
realize on. our securities.'. The trouble
lls t purely- : psychological. Confidence
has been k withdrawn and" the banks
got pinched, buf the money is in the
mines; the stocks .we have as securi
ties are worth' many times the \ sums
loaned on them, ..and unless' we are
forced to peddle our. securities, and al
most give them, away we .will be run
ning again in due time." ' ' ' '
. Rickey, who is president, o? the State
Bank and Trust company , of /Xevada,
whose branches in Carson City, .Tono- ;
pah, Goldfield. ' Blair and' Manhattan
have suspended paymcijt.^ spent yester-*

"The .only authentic' information : 1

what I read in The Call." 'he said. r
"From; my personal knowledge .of "the
situation Ido not see* ho,w. a single : de
positor could lose a cent. Tlie banks are
solvent: "the "securities "they, hold are
ample, and..it:.wiirrequire,,'only 'a little
time to adjust the present trouble." I;
\u25a0 President Rickey said" that unceasing
labor troubles were mainly responsible
for the financial depression in Nevada
mining camp?.

turbances," he said, Vw«s noticed |a
gradual .withdrawal of ; funds ;by^ de

.Lessors of mining properties, unable
