Valparaiso, Chile, Aug. 20.—At
7:15 last Thursdy evening Valparaiso
experienced an earthquake of great
severity and during the night 82
shocks were felt.
Most of the buildings of the city
are either burned or damaged. The
loss will be enormous, probably
reaching 8250,000,000. Two thous

a fair estimate of the casualties.

Santiago, Chile, Ang. 1*.— Tha
latest news brought in here by refu
gees from Valparaiso contradicts
some of the first exagerated state
ments from there, but shows, how
ever, that the catastrophe was unusu
ally severe. Senator Or or, one of
the refugees, relates that the first
shock in Valparaiso was very prolong
ed and threw the entire city into in
describable panic. People crowded
the streets and the squares crying and
lamenting. The first shock also
threw down a number of buildings.
The second shock was mo.e severe
and resulted in the crumbling of
most of the buildings in the Almen
dral quarter.
Immediately after the second shock
the entire city was plunged into ter
rifying darkness. This, however,
did not last long, for the scene of
destruction was soon lit up by the
flames that broke out in this quarter.
The light from the flames, Senator
Groz continues, came as a welcome
relief to the darkness. The people
were in a state of terror, many be

A Well Played Game Is Lost by
Coeur d'Alene
The locals were taken In by the S.
A. A. C. yesterday afternoon for the
third time, with a score of 10 to 5.
The game was an exoiting one for the
first six innings, the locals making
four scores in the first inning, to the
delight of the tans, and not until the
fourth Inning did the visitors tie this
score, when the boys went wild, al
lowing the Spokaneites to win four
without much opposition.
Daring the fifth end sixth innings
neither side scored, but in the seventh
the visitors brought two more tallies,
making the score six to four in their
favor. The locals came to bat with
good intentions and for a while it ap
peared as If they would tie the score
again, bat they only m&nagsged to
make one score, leaving the visitors
in the lead by one, and in the eighth
inning they netted three more, and in
the ninth one more, making their to

Evidences are gathering in force
to show that the people of Idaho
intend to make a square issue with
the Mormon church to roe which are
to control in that state—American
citizens or the polygamous apostles.
The contest does not arise too
noon. While this self-respecting cit
izenship of Idaho lias been gathering
force to make this fight, the hierarchy
have been invading the stale with
crime, with grafting, and with politi
cal corruption. Polygamists have
been protected in their offenses; they
have taken new wives since the mani
festo; they have continued to live
and beget children in the polyagmous
relation. The church has caused ap
propriations of money to be made
from the publie treasury to sustain
its commercial enterprise. Wherever
the hierarchy have had the power
they have degraded the public offices
and the politics to such a state of
corruption that, for some of |bsr lo
calities at least, Idaho stands ar
raigned before the nation.
The last assertion is a strong one,
and yet one single instanoe will
prove that it is a moderate expres
sion: William Budge, who testified
in Washington that he was the chief
Mormon of Idaho, and was living
with three wives, procured the elec
tion of his own sou as judge of the
district in which William Budge re
sides. Another son was district at

court and its offices, William Budge

The work of Tracy, pitcher for tha
8. A. A. C. was good, inasmuch as
the locals failed to find the hits, bat
Plummer did the better work of the
two. Tracy allowed three men beans
on balls, and has but two strikeouts
to his credit, while Plummer has sev
en stirkeouta and did not allow any
bases on balls. During the eighth
inning when the visitors were doing
some heavy hitting, Captain Middle
ton took Plummer out of the box and
did tbs twirling himself, much to the
disgust of the fans, for tbs Palouser
was working steady, his curves and
balls were breaking even, and while
his work waa not exceptional, he waa
playing good ball. In the ninth inn
ing, Middleton allowed on 1 man base
on ball, and struck ow out. The
locals have a total of ten errors for
the game, which is something unusu

The method which is now proposed
is to make effective the constitution
of the state of Idaho which prohibits
any polygamist, or adhereut of a
