LIVES CHOKE OU SMOKE PASSENGERS THROWN INTO WILD PANIC IN STRUGGLES TO ESCAPE. EIGHTY-TWO BODIES RECOVERED MANY MORE BODIES ARE BE- LIEVED TO BE IN HE TUNNEL. Paris, Aug. 12. A catastrophe oc curred last evening on the Metropoli tan Electric railway, which runs most ly underground, in which at least 90 persons are believed have lost their lives. Up to 3 o'clock this morning seven bodies have been recovered and the search continues. One train broke down at Menilmon tant station, which is in a poor and populous Quarter of Paris. This train was promptly emptied, and the train following was ordered to push it to the repairing sheds. On the way these two trains caught fire but the em ployes succeeded in escaping. Mean while a crowded train reached Les Couronnes, the preceding station, and the officials seeing smoke pouring out of the tunnel, gave the alarm. A panic ensued, the passengers Struggling to Escape from the station. Amid the increas ing smoke many attempted to re turn along the line toward Belleville, and they were suffocated. The of ficials seem to have lost their heads and are unable to say how many pas sengers went out. The firemen for several hours were unable to enter the station or the tunnel owing to dense smoke which poured out black clouds. Meanwhile thousands of anxious people gathered about the sta tion. All the police and fire officers were on the spot. The excitement was intense. Finally the firemen flooded the burn ign mass and shortly afterward they entered the tunnel. They brought up the corpses of eighty-two persons. The total number of dead will probably reach ninety. SHAW WILL NOT HELP. Condition of Money Market Does Not Call for Government Action.

AR E NO W I N TH E EIGHT O STAY MACEDONIANS WILL FIGHT UN- TIL THEY ATTAIN THEIR OBJECT. Sofia, Aug. 12.The delegates here of the Macedonian committed ad dressed the following appeal to each of the representatives of the powers: "Your Excellency: The delegates of the Macedonian committee have the honor to bring to your notice the fol lowing declaration with the request that you communicate it to your gov ernment: "The Mussulmans' systematic perse cution ha* compelled the Christians Tn Macedonia and the vilayet of Adriftn ople to institute a general rising. They have had recourse to this extreme measure after exhausting all pacltic means to secure the intervention of Europe to enforce the provisions of the Berlin treaty. At the present mo ment intervention is the only mean* of remedying the evil and Stopping Bloodshed. The sporadis efforts of the powers to secure reforms have failed they re sulted merely in a recrudescence of Turkish fanaticism and government oppression. "It is evident that reform measures to he efficacious must include the ap pointmpnt of a Christian governor gen eral of Macedonia, some one who has never held office under the porte, and who must be independent of the Turkish government in the exercise of his functions, and the further ap pointment by the powers of a joint, permanent administrative board, with full powers to deal with any disturb ance. "Having published the foregoing facts to the civilized world and made known the causes which have driven the Macedonians to despair, the com mittee for the Macedonians, now in arms, propose to continue the fight till the object of their uprising hag bean attained." Provoked by Tcrkey. London, Aug. 12.The Times prints a dispatch from Sofia which says it is believed there that the Turkish gov ernment provoked the present Mace donian rising "for not only has Turkey failed to execute the promises made to the Bulgarian government for the amelioration of the condition of the Bulgarian Macedonians, but she has increased her persecution and mal treatment, thus exasperating them. If the Turks should try now to sup press the rebellion by the mansacre of Innocent people the Bulgarian govern ment would be obliged to intervene." Powers Exchanging Views. Rome. Aug. 12..
