Interviews With tientlemen Fruiu the |
Stricken fit).
Washington, September a—The first
passeugers coming north from Charh-ston, !
S. C., arrived this morning. They were
unahle to leave Charl«*ston until yestenlay '
moruing, ou account of the interrupted |
railroad communication. Thomas H. Fol-1
soli, of Baltimore, oue of th«*** passengers,
gave a reporter an account of his experi
ences:
"1 was st«>ppiug at the Charleston
Hotel," he said. "I was in my room, which |
was on the thir«l floor. When 1 lit my gas j
1 heard a noise and supposed I had broken
something but could find nothing broken, j
I went to place luy hat ou a bureau ami j
just then the slux-k caiue. I would have!
falleu if 1 had not thrown my hands out î
and clung to the window. It secmetlasj
though the hotel was liftc«i up aud
S WIN«; BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS,
a distance of fifteen or twenty inches. At |
each vibration I was terrified. At the first I
sh«M-k the lights iu the house all went out. |
Theu the plastering b«>gan to fall. It flash- i
ed on my mind that I should endeavor to i
get out of the house, and I got out into the
corridor and groped my way iu utter dark-1
ness and aiui«l falling plaster. The other '
people in the house were likewise groping I
their way ont. The air was filled with |
plaster dust. All around was a terrible
roaring ami moaning sound, ami the «lin j
was heightemsl by the tailing of tiniherx.
1 tbund the front «l«*>r of the house closed—
a fortunate thiug for me, as it
SAY El» MY LIKE.
it took me a moment to find the knob an*! |
as I was looking tor it, tons of brick tell •
down from the upper part of the house, in •
front of the door. I ran out through the j
heaps of lallen bricks and fell twice in I
getting to the middle of the street. There
I remained terror-stricken. Two shocks
come alter 1 reached the middle of the
street—a faint one seven minutes alter the 1
tint, and another, more violent, nine min
utes later. The three shocks occurred ;
within sixteen minutes. I remained in |
front of the hotel until 1 o'clock. I did .
uot know what to do. I was so unnerve«! (
that 1 could scarcely staud. As it became ;
quieter, uo more shocks occurring. 1 went
up the street to au open space and re-,
uiaincd there until 3 o'clock. There we '
had
ANOTHER SLIGHT SHOCK.
At 3 o'clock I went to the Battery Park
and tound it crowded, several thousands ;
of terrified people having assembled then1. 1
There I remained during the remainder of
the night. At 5 o'clock another faint
shock was felt. At daylight, I, like others. |
felt more eucouraged and 1 moved around
to see what destruction had been done.
I found at the Battery front some of the "
most costly houses in the city cracked |
from the ground to the top, and some por
tions of the buildings were destroyed com- j
pletely. The terror among the people ;
during the night was iuteuse. Tbey j
rushed through the streets
FRANTICALLY CA LUX« ON IK)I>
to have mercy on them. People who, [
perhaps, never praved before, then prayed
aloud. The greatest tem>r and confusion
reigned everywhere. The people, when
the shock tame, ran men, women and:
children, out into the streets in their night
clothing and rem:tined in that way during
the night huddled together in the street
None would venture luck into the houses."
Mr. Foison said that be thought the :
published estimate of damage was too low, '
and that three-fourths of the city would
have to be rebuilt. The people killed j
were killed while leaving their houses, by
the tailing of debris. All who could leave
the city were leaving yesterday.
Mr. P. T. Beunett left Charleston yes
terday on the first outward train. There
were five cars
PACKED WITH BEFTOEES.
For the first two miles the train moved
very slowly. The rails were twisted. As ,
the train wetft aloof the people in the car
noticed another shock. This further
twisted the rails. It was, however, possi
ble to proceed slowly. The people are at
work digging in the ruins for bodies, and
an til that work is completed it will be im
possible to tell, or even guess any way ac
curately at the number of casualties."
"Have the reports of the disaster been
exaggerated?' '
"Not a bit of it. It would be impossi
ble to put into words any description ol
the disaster and its effects. My wife and I
spent two night« on the commons, as did
thousands of other people. To depict
THE DBKADFII. SCEN'K
would be beyond any man's powers. There
is not one tionse in ten that will not have
to be rebuilt. There was a peculiar differ
ence in the manner in which brick aud
frame bnildings went under. The walls of
the brick buildings swayed and fell over,
while the buildings buiit of wood simply
collapsed."
"Were there any peculiar conditions pre
ceding the shocks?"
"Yes. It became terribly hot about
twenty minutes before the shock. It was
a peculiar scorching heat that I never felt
before. I saw people on the streets taking
off their coats and vests as they walked
along. Then there was a rumbling noise. It
was like a train of cars pasBing under a
tunnel on the top of which one stands.
This rumbling and roar were followed by
the shocks and the terribly swaying move
ments and then the falling of walls.
On Wednesday all you could get to v«t
was some canned goods. All the stores
were closed and all the hotels. No one
wanted to go iuto the houses to cook."
In leaving Charleston Mr. Bennett no

THE GREENBACKERS.
GEN. GUFF'S HENCHMEN CUNNINGLY AC
COMPLISH THEIR PURPOSE.
The Third Senatorial District Greenbackers Are
Asked to Pall the Chestnuts Oat of the
Fire for the Republicans.
Special (brrcspondciiee of the Register.
West Union, W. Va., September 3.—
A few of the Greenbackers of the Third
I Senatorial District met iu G. W. Fair's
law office at this place, August 31st,
pursuant to a call of thu Chairman, and
effected a sale of the party, principles and
all, to the Republicans, iu the nomination
ot M. S. Riley, of Clarksburg, as the can
didate whom the Republicans will indorse
and a henchman of General Gotf. The
convention was composed of the fol
lowing delegates: J. C. Johnson,
Lott Bowen, Sell Ogdeu, Joseph Noble,
and old uncle Ben Clemen«. The Hon. E.
G. Taylor looked in at the august body,
shook his head and departed. J. W. Gat
rell aud C. M. Tate feeling aggrieved over
the Buchannou sellout, were not present.
I. C. Hoopes and L. M. Fleming, t wo dele
tes from Ritchie county, were in town,
hut found it more agreeable iu a Demo
cratic mass meeting which was in progress
at the same time in the Court House. The
Hon. Judge Edwin Maxwell, the defeated
fusion candidate for Governor, and an
other henchman of General UofF,
was present, closeted with the Chairman,
J. C. Johnson, Lott Bowen and Sell
Ogdcn, who made the sale anil will at
tempt to deliver up the goods to Judge
Maxwell in the interest of Gen. Gofl' for
L'. S. Senator. The honest Greenbacker
will have a hard pill to swallow, when he
votes directly or indirectly for Gen. (lot!
the President of a National Hank at
Clarksburg. If the Grceuhaekere would
succeed, they must sup|)ort the
Democratic ticket, as the principles of the
two parties are one and the same. The
Greenhackers have simply followed the
ideas of the Democracy in the presentation
of what they claim to be their distinctive
financial views. The democratic party
has always favored the idea that taxation
should be equal and uniform; that each
oue should pay taxes in proportion to the
property he possesses, whether that be
large'or small. The Journals of Congress
show this.
As early as Juno 'J*, 1862, the question
of concurring in Senate amendments to the
act creating bonds, etc., was before the
House, M. Holnian, a Democrat, offered a
provision: "Thatnothing in this act shall
impair the right of the State to tax the
bomls, notes and other obligations issued
under tins act." Sixty-three Democrats
voted for this amendment and not one
voted against it. Only eight Republicans
voted for it and seveuty-seven against it. j
Thus the Republican party defeated the J
proposition. That was an early action o! I
the Democracy in favor of the people. In
Hi;:; the Democrats voted against Nation
al bank charters. In April, lSil, they
voted against the supplemental bank bill, j
Liter on, while the Republicans voted
against taxing the banks, the Democrats
voted for such taxation. In H70 Dem
ocrat!) voted against funding the
greenbacks into coin ltouds. It was
claimed that this act rohlied the people of
ueailv $.">00,000,000. The Republicans
were solid for the funding. The Democrats
were always on tin- side of the people. The
Republicans were always on the side of the
mouo]M>lists. There is no hope for the
Greenhackers to have a single one of their
principles carried out by voting with
the Republican party, that issued the
bonds and exempted them from taxation,
that made those bonds payable in currency
when lirst issued, then in violation of that
contract made by the people with the I Kind
holders, made the bonds payable in coin. ■
Not satislied with this, legislated still fur
ther in the interest of the bondholder, by
making those bonds payable iu gold.

Word has been received here of a sickening
calamity which occurred about miduight
last night live mile» and a half above
Sonestown, on the line of the
Williamsport and North Brunch
railroad. where a large numbei
of Hungarian laborers are employed on an
extension of the road. A shanty, in which
over twenty of these men lodged, caught
lire last night from the overturning of a
stove while the men were asleep. Sixteen
men slept on the second lloor. Those ou
the first floor and all on the second floor bul
seven succeeded in gettiugout. The others
were left to their fate and were roasted
alive in the buruing sliauty. Their charred
remains were afterwards found in the
ruins. The men who escaped were au
Jjanic-stricken that they made no effort t«
save their companions. The remains of the
seven dead were removed to Soncatown tc
await the arrival of the Coroner from Im
porte. The names of the victims have not
yet beeu received.
RADICAL HOl'NDS.
The Falsity of IIU Assortions Ke^anling
Appointments.
Washington, Septeuil»er —A meet
ing ol' the Democratic employes of the
Government Printing Office was hehl last
evening to protest against the published
statement of l'ublic Printer Rounds that
(hiring his administration he hail ap
pointed as many Democrats as Rcpubli
cans, and tliat the office is now equally
divided between the two parties. Iii
point of fact, lint about one-lifth of the;
employes are Democrats, and these have
been appointed to the suWdinate j>osi
tions that were far less profitable and
more arduous than those held by Republi
cans. A majority of these Democratic
appointees were given their places after
the election of Cleveland, and of them
were on the recommendation of Senator
Gorman, who is on the Senate Printing
Committee. Hounds, in his statement,
says that he never inquired into the poli
ties of applicants, hut Senator Kenn»,
Chairman of the Democratic Congressional
Committee, has in his |iosscssiou letters
over Rounds' own signature asking the
polities of parties applying for positions
under him. In reducing the lorce Demo
crats were invariably selected for dismis
sal. No Republicans were disturlasd. The
force Is now HOU in excess of the require
ment of business, simply because
Rounds has made it a rule to dis
miss no Republican. The Democratic
printers especially object to t lie w ay Rounds
is endeavoring to handicap the new Public
Printer, lie has tiled recoin inondations
extolling certain Republican employes, and
asking their retention under the new ad
ministration. In this way lie hopes to lix
his personal friends, and if they Ik* dis
missed, raise a howl over partisan action.
In connection with Rounds' retirement
there is a feature that lias on its face the
appearance of a job. Rounds was one«- a
volunteer tireniau, and « hen he came to the
office and Ii I led every vacant corner with a
U re ex tiuguisher manufactured in Chicago,
it was thought to be merely a fancy of his;
but wltliiu the past week he has adver
tised for proposals for "protecting the
Government Printing Office building with
a complete system of lire extinguishers
throughout the entire establishment."
l'he contract is to be given out September
l.'J, one day before Rounds retires. Within
the prescribed time no lirm that had not
an advance tip could make an estimate oil
such a comprehensive-job. The fact that
the office is better protected with lire ap
paratus than any other publie building in
Washington makes com men t unnecessary.
Someone who is in "on the ground lloor"
will get a fat contract for needless equip
ments the day before Roundsdisappers be
low the official ho^soii.

"Prince Alexander ha*s committed a seri

the hacks were printed in brown

the same color of inks on the back and face
as the greenbacks. The backs are engraved

The blank spaces w hich have l»een left
