AN EARTHQUAKE SHAKES SALVADQR.
Heavy Loss of Life With Great Destruction of Property. ! Several Small Towns Wiped Out by the Seismic Wave—The People Rushed From Their Homes In Terror. Cablegram to the New York Herald. San Salvador, via Galveston, Tex., Sept. 9.—Millions of dollars' worth of property and many lives destroyed in this Republic by quake to-day. Whole towns were wiped out, and far as advices received here indicato hardly a city in the country, except those along the coast, escaped the awful effects of the convulsion. There have been indications for •everal days past that a seismic dis turbance of more than usual power might be expected. The volcanoes of San Salvador, San Miguel and Izalco have been unusually active, and deep •ubterranean rumblings and slight earth tremors have been felt. ' Such things are not uncommon here, however, and while there was a feeling of uneasiness here last night there no great alarm felt. At 1.55 o'clock this morning the earth began to shake. The wave had a strong vertical and oscillatory move ment. People rushed into tho streets in their night clothing, and, while the shock lasted only 20 seconds, before it had passed away there was a panic stricken mob making its way to the open country outside of the city. The scene was terribly sublime. Mon, women and children were shrieking and praying in the streets; walls of houses cracked, tottered and fell; there was a deep, continuous rumbling heavy thunder; the sky was overcast « and the air was filled with a fine, pene ' trating dust. While the shock lasted and fell in long waves, wero earth if of the earth and strong men were unable to keep their feet. • The panic-stricken people flocked to the open ground outside of tho city; temporary shelters were thrown up wherever possiblo, but nearly all the and a great many of the women and children had only the sky for a cover. All through the morning there have been slight shocks, but none approach ing in intensity that which had b destructive. The inhabitants are afraid to return to their houses and are making them selves as comfortable as possible in their temporary camps until tho commotion subsides. President Ezeta is lie can to stop the panic homeless people until it is considered aafe for them to go back to their homes. The tow doing everything c ana care for tho throughout the country have suffered more severely than the capital even. Analquito and Comosagua have been completely destroyed. Gojutepeque, Santa Tccla, San Pedro d Masahuet were so badly shaken at they are practically ruined, while the «hock was plainly felt and damage --'done by it at Santa Ana and Susim tepeque, fully sixty miles from here. It is impossible at this writing to form any idea as to the number of lives which have been lost. Two people here, though there were many almost miraculous escapes from death. It is feared, however, that there have been many people killed in the smaller towns. of property will run well "• 8 The 1 Into the millions. This is the third time wlthin lcss than 40 years that San Salvador has been de stroyed by earthquake shocks. In April, 1854, not a single house was left in the city fit for habitation and over 300 lives were lost. The dust and debris from the falling buildings filled up all of the wells and drinkiDg places. Again in March, 1873, the city was shaken to the ground. Over $5,000,000 worth of proporty was destroyed then and upward of 50 lives were lost. So it seems that destructive seismic disturbances visit the country at inter of 19 years. of 19 years. express train, , Célébrât os the numbers and Democratic Victory in Newport. Newport, R. I., Sept. 10.—The city election yesterday resulted in an almost complete overturn and the first victory for the Democrats on strictly-draw it party lines achieved in municipal affairs In many years. The Democrats elected their mayor, full board of six aldermen, tond oight of 15 coancilmcn, with one failure to elect. This majority of three, and possibly five, on a joint ballot gave them control of all city offices whose election is by city council. Colonel Honey's majority for mayor is 237. FATAL CARELESSNESS. ItCauned the Death of Five Men and the Wounding of Many Other». Glasgow, Sept. 10.—A terrible acci dent, due to somebody's carelessness, occurred here to-day. A number of iailroad laborers were pairing a railroad track, along which a number of trains were constantly pass ing. As usual in such cases the drivers of all passing engines had been warned to keep a lookout for the laborers at work at the point referred to, and to whistle when This warning seems not to have been given to the driver of or else he forgot his instructions. In any event, the express train dashed into the midst of the working trackmen, killed four men upon the spot and seri ously injured a number of others.

Duke of Marlborough provement of the English Service. The following interesting and instruc tho condition, past,present prospective of the telephone service London, appeared in the London Time» of September 8th : Having made a special study of the telephono for many years, both from its connection with pure science as well enormous possibilities letter a boon to public, 1 venture to crave your in dulgence for the following remarks. The paper which was read at Cardiff by Prcece on the Paris and London telephone, and the < paper that followed a complete scheme for the telephon of a large town like London, mark era in the history of this invention, before qually from interesting Mr. Bennett which is destined important a factor in domestic life as the telegraph itself. The reasons why this wonderful in vention has so slowly developed England are probably not entirely known to tho public, and, on the eve of great development which is now likely to tako place, it may be interest ing to some of your readers to know what these causes have been in the past and what the progress is going to be in the future. When the telephone was first started England, and the post office pro ceeded against the United Telephone Company for infringing the telegraph acts, it was decided by the courts that a a telegram long to be business and telephone message within the meaning of thoso acts, and had a right to vention save the postmaster-general. The post office, however, came to terms with tho telephone company, and, on consideration of a 10 per cent royalty on tho gross receipts, the post office granted to the new telephone company, and subsequently to other telephone companies, licenses of 26 years' dura tion. These licenses were of the form of all England licenses, and were not applicable only to particular districts, and the only reservations contained in them wero that the postmaster-general should not bo debarred from entering the telephone business himself, and that the post office should have the right to buy up the telephone industry at a valuation at every septcunial period. The first septennial period in the license of the present national company occurred last year, and I brought the matter to the atten tion of the House of Lords, and pressed the government to exercise the power they had and undertake the teleph» work of tho country as a branch of the post office. I had many interviews with the late postmaster-general matter, but it was decided that the required to establish the industry on a proper and complete system would bo so large that the post office did not see their way to undertake the work, be sides the fact that, owing to the am ding of the purchase s impossible to say whether served a notice ntional," would this in biguity of the clause, it government, if they of purchase on the "Na not have been obliged to pay that company the whole three millions which their share capital had amounted to under the various schemes of amal gamation they had carried out with other companies. As matters aie to-day, there Is a small development of tho tele phone going on in some of the large provincial towns of England, but the sys tem is interior and the cost prohibitive. In London the total number of sub scribers does not exceed a few thousand, and these aie almost entirely in the city. Practically, no development of the telephone for social or business pur poses exists, while the price is above the means of the many. In some towns the telephone enters largely into public use. In a small place like Christiania, for instance, the whole business of the place is done on the telephone, as also is the cose in Stock holm. A report from the consular ser vice, dated 1890, gives a count of the E very full ac se of the telephone in Norway and Sweden. The price does not exceed £4 to £4 10s. subscribers. In a town like might fairly expect that one in 60 at least would bn subscribers among offices, shops and residents. ear to r:j on we One insuperable difficulty, however, has existed besides the large cost of £20 a year which the National Company have been charging to subscribers—viz., that tho system has been a single-wire system of overhead wires carried ou polos above houses, and the return rent between subscribers has been taken by the earth. The consequence has been that the telephone has tried the patience of everybody from its inaudibility, while the primitive system of exchanges and the fewness of these exchanges have mado the delays in "getting through," as it is called, on the telephone simply intolerable. Every one who has got a telephone in his house to-day is in open revolt against the, instrument, count of its irritating bell and its subse queut failure to make itsolf efficient a means of conversation. Now all this is changed when we come to the Paris and London telephone. I have heard the tick of the watch of the person I speaking to in the Rue de Grenelle from the London General Post Office, and I could have cor liad been in the respondent. This telephone is a complete metallic circuit with no earth return, The same result is arrived at wherever the twin wire is used, and Mr. Bennett's plan was interesting in showing that it is easy, at a very moderate cost, to tele the whole of London on the system, aud, with the system of exchange appliances, to do away with all. the delays in getting through from one person to another. Moreover, it is demonstrable that this can be accomplished at a remunerative profit for a £10 n year subscription for the whole of the London district »>f five millions of inhabitants. It is much to be feared Unit the NfUional Company will never Le able to reduce their rate to a £10 level, as all tho money they paid for patents should be written oil tills year, their last important patents having expired. Further, their system being entirely single-wire, with over head connections, and with scheme for dividing L< centrai exchanges, it would he for them rersed for hours as if with my : general don up into tssary relay the whole of their d exchanges from end to end before they could extend their system or improve their service to any prac tical extent. Another matter of vital importance is trunk wires the air onstrosities, but also bo able to establish sufficient lines be tween central and sub-stations. In order to obtain this object it is necessary to go to parliament for powers for lay ing their wires underground. This is about to be done, and a new company, a license from the post master-general, is about to promote a bill before parliament next session with the object of establishing a complete twin-wire telephone service for the whole of London on the basis of a £10 to be able get all Set ground, and*not only f these black fr< r hielt posses year rental, and with a system based i the plan worked out by Mr. Bennett, so that the telephone will be available to everybody for their business, their shopping, and their social needs. The scheme is a most interesting if , and with the poslbility of getting trunk lines underground, the darkening of the air by large cables will be com pletely obviated and done away with. We may, therefore, hope before long to realize the plans set forth at the British Association meeting, and be able from writing-tables to speak with a friend in his country home, or even discourse with a friend in Paris as to his doings, and also convey our social invitations abuut town without having to write interminable notes and make numberless cab journeys, often to avail. I remain, sir, your obedient servant, Marlborough. 3 CAKLTON-nOtTSE-TERKACK. THE AMERICAN WHEELMEN. Defined at Hartford-The Race»--Records Broken.

European Market Is Overstocked DnsIneM Is The Philadelphia Record the following : Tho export trade in wheat has come to a dead halt. After nprecedented activity there is a complete subsidence demand. Within tho last week ex porters havo offered September right and left in European markets without mooting with satisfactory re sponse. There Is no halt in the outward movement, which represents previous sales, but thore is no new demand. Sev oes cleared last week from and New Orleans that .1. i.. .I . : I«] Friday A several months of carg Montreal evidently unsold in Europe, as they were consigned to Cork for orders. It costs three ponce per quarter equivalent of I of a cent per bushel more to ship wheat to Cork for orders than it does to ship it to a direct port, and the inference is fair that wheat thus shipped is still unsold in Europe, or tho shipper would save that difference in cost by sending his cargo direct to the point of its final destination. The causes that havo led up to this condition of affairs are easily traced. is a bad case of indigestion in Europe. Tho shipments of new wheat from the United States ports did not amount to much until August, when they reached total of about 32,000,000 bushels. The exports for September to date and the business assured for this month, accord ing to most conservative estimates, will not fall short of 25,000,000 bushels. In addition to these clearances there have been sales of exchange and ocean freight engagements and other details perfected the shipment of fully 50,(100,000 bushels of wheat during October and November. This enormous aggregate 107,000,000 bushels shipped and to shipped during the four months end iug with November 30th has been sold exclusively from the winter wheat crop that was harvested The big spring wheat crop of the north west—that will not fall much short of 200,000,000 bushels, and that has just been harvested—has contributed scarcely more than 2,000,000 or 3,000,000 bushels the total, and it is now coming into Duluth and Minneapolis at the rate of about 4,000 carloads per week. 1 1 ! 1 1' in June and July.

Railroad Exit d F urther Dovelop " ! i Easton, Md., Sept. 10.—It is re ported, on what seems to be good thority, that the Pennsylvania Railroad Company will build a road from Showell station, Maryland & Virginia road, by them, to Ocean City, crossing the Bynepuxent considerably further north than the present railroad bridge, and about where the Goldsborough cottage located. The distance from Showell to the Synepuxcnt Beach is about six miles, and this new route will consid erably shorten the Philadelphia, Wil mington A Baltimore travel, which now reaches Ocean City via Berlin.
