of preserves, which were distributed
araon; the strikers. They remained
there that night, and on the following
day, sent some of their leaders on to Xegrei
ros. There more men were to be collected.
Suddenly, however, a train ■arcd loaded
with government troops, under Martin Lar
raine. Without balling or parleying these
troops opened lire on the defenseless work
men, women and children. Shortly after
wards the forces marched forward and kiiled
till the men. Meanwhile the men from the

these deeds nad been committed, some a-.rj
men were arrested, aud of this number eight

Ihe Lima Uiario said March 16:
'The Chilian government and the Chil
ian rebel authorities have both shot
several peisons. Among the number
was Anibal Naranjo, a government ofli
cer, who was shot when the rebels re
tired from Ovalle. It is Lted that
when the government forces retired
from Pozo Almonte they shot all the
prisoners they ad, and destroyed all
the nitrate iishments they passed.
The number of men who took part in
the fight at Pozo ilmonte March 7is
estimated at 4.000, and nearly three
fourths of this number were under the
orders of the government leaders. The
contest was i». iguinary one, and more
than 1,000 killed and wounded was the
result. The Balinaceda forces were
routed with the loss of all their artillery
and the greater number of the infantry.
The avairy, which took no part in the
combat, joined with the few infantry
soldiers, who lied towards the west, and
with the head of arbosa's column,
which arriv at the . upa ruter the
action, immediately retired toward
Camina. The revolutionary rmy com
mitted a number of astro'cities, "which
the commanders and officers could not
prevent, at Pozo Almonte, the center
of the nitrate trict. and where there
were about 1.000 inhabitants, and of
whom many perished. including women,
when the dispersed roops were fol
lowed up. and when the victors com
menced to plunder drinking shops and
provision stores. 1 ' A cable message re
ceived in Callao on March 31 reads as
follows: "The revolutionary squadron
has left Iquique for Valparaiso, after
receiving on board the men-of-war and

writing from Moche, Tern, on the 26th,
said: "Torrents of rain fell last night,
and as the houses were not built to re
sist rain, they soon commenced to fall,
while roots and walls fell in many or
the streets. The square became an im
mense lake. More than twenty-two
kilometres of the Chiama railroad have
been damaged. Provisions are very
scarce. Thursday, March 12, it com
menced to rain in Sayan, and soon the
streets were riooded. The water rushed
through them with the velocity of
a torrent, and the strength of " the
current was augmented by the
waters which soon came pouring
in from the higher outskirts.
The wind blew with such force at iiuau
aqui, twenty-four miles from Supe, that
large trees were blown down, and in
some cases torn up by the roots and
raised high in the air. All the planta
tions and farms have been more or less
damaged. Respecting the floods in the
department of Libertad, a correspond
ent writes that the losses exceed £2,000,-
O'M, The splendid and cosily iron
bridge across the Lurin river has been

directions that the turbulent and raging
waters should not sweep away the

the Explosion.
The Most Valuable Relics in

Church Destroyed.
The Vatican Did Not Escape
the Damaging Effects of
the Explosion.
The Accidental Explosion of
Shrapnell Shell Capsules
Caused the Wreck.
Rome, April 24.— The explosion of 265
tons of gunpowder yesterday in the
powder masrazine at Pozze Pantaieo.
which caused serious damage and loss
or life, created great alarm at the Vat
ican. All the windows of the pope's
library were broken, and a number of
precious relics were destroyed. In ad
dition many valuable panes of colored
glass in the principal windows of St.
Peter's Basilica were smashed to pieces.
The handsome stained glass window
over the chair of St. Peter was
also broken. At St. Paul's church
all of the stained glass windows
were damaged. In fact the damage
done ac this church was so great that
the building has been closed to the pub
lic, while the debris is being cleared
away and the work of temporary repair
inaugurated. Much ot the destruction
wrought by the explosion is irreparable,
as the valuable works of art which have
been destroyed cannot be replaced.
Many of the stained giass windows
which have been shattered are the
works of celebrated artists who flour
ished hundreds of years ago,
aud though, in some cases,
the windows can be replaced, in
many other cases their historic and
artistic value is destroyed forever.
Many most valuable relies in the mon
j astery of St. Paul have also succumbed
to the force of the explosion. As al
ready stated, some time must elapse be
fore the full amount ot the damage will
be known, as it will require a personal
I visit to and inspection of tens of thou
sands of artistic relics before the full
story of the disaster can be recorded.
It now transpires that the pope had
just concluded the celebration of a
low mass, and was engaged in
prayer when the explosion shook the
Vatican building. So severe was the
shock that his holiness tottered and
would have fallen had not one of the
i servants in attendance sprung forward
j and caueht the venerable prelate in his
arms. His holiness has now recovered
from the shock he experienced through
the explosion. The investigation made
by the miiitary authorities into the
origin of the explosion, shows that it
was caused by the accidental explosion
of some shrapnel shell capsules. A few
of the people who were injured at
the time of the explosion and who
were taken to the hospitals have
since died from the effect of the injuries
they received. King Humbert to-day is
calling at the hospitals and visiting the
wounded people. The king's sympa
thetic action in conveying some "of the
wounded in his carriage to the hospitals
j yesterday, and \a visiting the wounded
to-day, is hi-ihiy appreciated by the
j popuiace of this city. Among those
who were hurt by the accident was Bil
lot, the French ambassador. M. Billot
was slightly injured by falling glass.
Three Surveying Parties Investi
gating; Its Feasibility.
WASHEfGTOJf, April 24.— Three par
ties will soon be in the field, encaged in
: the work of a preliminary survey for the
proposed intercontinental American
railway. The party sent to Ecuador
will begin work in about a month, and
the Central American expedition must
now be very near its destination, while
the third party will also be at work be
fore a creat while. Having completed
all that could be done for the present,
the intercontinental railway commis
sion has adjourned until the Ist of Feb
ruary next year, by which time it is ex
pected the three surveying parties will
have secured valuable data upon
which the commission cau base its
future work, and online a more definite
line of location for the proposed road, if
its construction is found feasible and
practicable, physically and financially.
Meantime, the delegates on the commis
sion will return totiieir respective coun
tries, in order to gather information for
use when they reconvene. There is an
executive committee, however, with
full power to act. that will attend
to any business coming up during the
absence of the commission, whose office
in this city will remain open all the
year, to receive any A^gestions and in
formation that may be proffered. Even
should the reportsof the surveying i>ar
ties be adverse to the construction ot an
intercontinental railway, it is expected
that much good will come of their work,
through the increased knowledge ob
tained of the countries traversed, as the
surveyors will travel through a great
deal of territory never before explored.
The Detroit Strike to Be Settled by
Detroit. Mich.. April 24.— At a late
hour tiiis afternoon the secretary of the
city railway company addressed a letter
to Mayor Pingree accepting his sugges
tion of arbitrating the present trouble
between the company and its employes.
The letter, which is ambiguous in word
ing, has thrown considerable oil upon
the troubled waters, and it is thought
the strike will be a thing of the past
within the next forty-eight hours. The
strikers are jubilant at the turn matter?
have taken, and the city rings with
their shouts as one of their impromptu
busses passes from time to time. Public
sympathy is entirely with the men, and
liberal concessions have been taken in
the various parts of the city for them
during the past two days. No trouble
is anticipated this evening on a::yof the
lines. It is not thought "that any at
tempt to run cars will be made till the

Keinmic Does Up Scully With
Great Ease.
Charley Kemmic, of Minneapolis,
whipped Jimmy Scully, ot Woesisocket.
K. 1., so quickly last night in Minne
apolis that he can get backing for any
amount against any 140-pound man that
breathes. Kemmic entered the
ring at 9:10 followed by his seconds.
Dannv Needham, Johnny Van Hust
and Charley Johnson. Twenty min
utes later Scully appeared. Behind him
were Denny Kelliher, Jim Kelliher and
Tim McCarthy, The timekeepers were
Jimmy Manninir for Kemmic, Georse
Harris for Scully, and F. A. McAvby
for the club. Henry Seelye officiated as
referee. Kemmic weighed 141}^ and
Scully half a pound more.
As the men shook hands the differ
ence in height was apparent. Scully
was taller and had a greater reach.
Kemmic looked every inch a tighter.
Both appeared in excellent condition.
Kemmic, however, is more compact
built, and looked the stronger. As they
faced each other there was a death-like
stillness. "Time," said the referee.and
at it they went.
Round One— For half a round there was
light sparrins. Dut no punehins. Then Kem
mic led with the lef for Scully's body, but
fell short. Scully landed a 'hard "rieht
hauder on Kemmic's ribs. Kemmic came
back: with a hard nunch on Scully's neck.and
rushed, doins little damage.
Round Two— Scully got in several light ;
ones on Kemmic. He tried to rush, and re
ceived a facer that stopped him. He landed i
two light blows on Kenunic's ribs. Kemmic
rushed, and Scully tried to unper- i
cut him twice, but failed to iand.
Scullv went alter Kemmic and received a ,
6mash in the ribs for his trouble. He return
ed a lisht one on Kemmic's head. Kemmic
shot out his left, cutchine Scully in the neck.
Scully motioned as if to leave. A terrific ■
right-hander on the Doint of the jaw sent
him to the floor. At the expiraiiou of ten ;
seconds he was on his hands aud knees, but. •
too weak to rise, He did not recover until j
fifteen seconds bad eiapsed. . Kemmic was
carried from the ring ou the shoulders of the
As to length, the fisht was a disap
pointment, but in no other way. Kem
mic showed such fighting qualities that
admiration for him overshadowed the
.regret of those who expected a ten
round contest at the least. Scully was
something of a disappointment, but no
man couid have stood up under the
swinging . blow which settled him.
Scully is a clever boxer. He seems to
have a good head, too, but lacks in pun
ishment-iufiicting qualities.
Flowers and Talk; Showered Upon
the President.
Santa. Barbara, Cal.. April 24. —
After leaving Pasadena, the president's
train stopped tor a few minutes at San
Bernanidino, where the president was
introduced to a crowd at the station by
William H. Hawks, formerly of In
diana, and made a short speech. A
beautiful arch of evergreens * had been
erected over the railroad track in
his honor, and the ladies loaded his car
with Spanish bayonets and other flow
ers. The next stopping place was
Santa Paula, where the president was
cordially received. Here was displayed
the lanrest solid fioral piece the party I
lias seen since it left Washington. It I
was in the form of a sign board,
twelve feet long and three feet wide,
and was made entirely of caila
lillies. Across its face was the word
"Welcome" in large letters of red
geraniums. The committee of citizens
boarded the train and presented the
president with a five-foot model of an
old derrick niada of cnoice flowers. A
speech was demanded, and the presi
dent addressed the crowd.

noyer. when asked last nisrht about his
remarks resarding the etiquette of the
presidential receptions and the position
he will maintain in the recep
tion to be tendered President '
Harrison on his visit here, said:
"I wouid not have had that interview
appear in print for the world. 1 express
ed my opinions in strict confidence, and
did not give them for publication. The
interview would make it appear that I !
expected the president to hunt me up.
I wished to convey no such idea. I will
receive President Harrison with ail the
courtesy due his exalted position. I see
that on this presidential trip all the
governors are receiving the president at
the state line. This was never done be
fore, and I doubt its propriety." •

Quicksilver and Gold.
Special to the GloDe.
Rapid City, S. D., April 24.—Will
iam Wilson, one of the miners of the
Bad Lands, was in the city to-day. He
says that twenty miners are now at the
fields, and will begiusiuicing as soon aa
the water lowers jn the creek. Gold is
found with quicksjlver, which surprises
old miners, who are also puzzled by the
fact that the coarsest gold is found at
the mouth of the creek. Experts here
discredit the existence of. quicksilver
with gold, and say that formations of
the Bad Lands give no indications of
cold, though it may be of glacial origin
or wash from the hills.
Found Guilty of Publishing Lot
tery Advertisements.
Sioux Falls, S. D.. April 24.— T. 11.
Ayers. editor of the Yermiliion Plain
Talk, has been convicted of publishing
lottery advertisements. Mr. Ayers was
indicted by the grand jury April 17 for
publishing in the Ver million Plain Talk
during the month of December and ud
to Jan. 16 lottery advertisements, one
for a Yermiliion jeweier and one for
M. A. Dauphin, of New Orleans. Post
office Inspector Clement was directed
by the department to investigate
and see if there were any violations,
which he did, and found that Mr. Avers
had been violating the law. During
the montn of December there was pub
lished in the Plain Talk an advertise
ment of a jeweier in Yermiliion, who
offered prizes to his customers, tickets
being given to those who purchased a
certain amount of goods. Postmaster
Kidder. of Vermilliou, informed Mr.
Ayers that he could not accept the
Plain Talk with the lottery advertise
ment in it, and that if they were pre
sented they would be thrown out. Mr.
Ayers, however, persisted, and the
result was just as Mr. Kidder pre
dicted. Mr. Avers appealed from
Kidder's decision to the postmaster
general, who confirmed the act of his
subordinate. This did not abash Mr.
Ayers in his effort, and after repeated
trials to run his paper through finaily
gave it up. He added to his various
acts another which the inspector re
ported, and that was publishing an ad
vertisement which, iv effect, stated that
M. Dauphin, of New Orleans, would re
ceive money for investment. Dauphin
is the head and front of the Louisiana
lottery. One of the tickets used by the
jeweler was secured and used at the
trial. This is the first case of the kind
under the new law. and is one of great
interest to the country at large.

The Police Have a Good Des
cription of the Murderer
to Work On.
Netv York. April 24.— Now let the
police of New York prove their boasted
superiority over the police of London.
Jack the Kipper is here. He has done
his unspeakable work. His victim,
mangied as he mangled her predecessors
in the grim list in London, lies now as
he left her in the garret where the deed
was done. Further than that, the
weapon used has been found and is in
the hands of the police. But. more than
all. Jack the Ripper himself was
seen before he did his bloody
work The girl who saw him
is able to give a close
and clear description of him, and if
brought face to face with him can iden
tify him positively. The story of the
crime is horrible in its simplicity and in
its familiarity. Under different sur
roundings, and with modifications inci
dent to those surrounninsrs. it is an
exact repetition of the horrible atroci
ties of Whitechapel. The scene is in a
little dirty squalid room up on the fourth
aiid topmost rioor of a wretched lodging
house, known as the East River house,
and kept by one James Jennings.
The house is at the cor
ner of Water and Catharine
streets and is designated as 16 Catharine
Slip. The entrance proper is on Water
street. The door here opens into a
short hallway. At the end of this pass
age a flight of narrow, worn wooden
stairs goes up to the tioor above. Here
a book is kept called a register, and in
this register Edward Fitzgerald, the
clerk of the house, writes such names
as persons seeking rooms for the uisrht
choose to give him. Through this
Water street doorway and up the flight
of stairs there came, at 10:45 last night
two persons. One was a woman who
could not have been much under
Sixty Years of Age.
Her hair had passed the iron gray
stage and was almost white. Her feat
area were small, irregular and stamped
with the mark of drunkenness and the
gutter. She wore an old black skirt
and waist, and on her head was riun<r a
shawi. Bfee was a cynical specimen oi
the drunken old harridan of the slums.
Her companion, the man whom the en
tire police force of New Fork is now
bending its energies to capture, was
the opposite in nearly every respect to
the woman. In point of years he
might have been her son. " He was
not a day.to all appearances,over thirty
one or thirty-two years of litre. In build
he was slisht. and he was not over live
feet eight inches in height He had a
light complexion, a small blond mus
tache and blond hair. The woman.
when she came in, was in a cheerful
.md apparently under alcoholic
influence. She laughed at the very
tirst. and asked her companion to buy
her beer. To this he made no reply, bin
handed a 10-cent piece over to the worn- j
an without a single word. She asked
him if she might get the beer,
and he simply nodded his
Clerk Fitzgerald asked them what name j
he should put upon the register. To
this the man replied with what sounded
to the clerk like C. Knicio, and so he i
wrote it upon the hotel register. In all
probability the stranger endeavored to
give tiie German name Nicolal— C. Nic
olai. Whether or not tliat is his real
name remains to be seen. That the
horrible butcher deliberately set out to
tind a victim seems beyond question, just
as it is apparently equally sure that the
only motive forthe deed was sheer brute
thirst ror blood and horrible mutilation.
At all events, with a sputtering candle I
in his hand, be led the way up three
nights of stairs above the tioor where
the so-calied office is kept and reached i
the fourth or top floor of the house. The
room assigned to him was No. 31. It is
the coiner room and. like all the other
rooms of the house, it was a mere
Style ola Hole.
On a narrow bed next the partition
wall was a erimy. greasy mattress and
pillow and a few wretched bed clothes.
There was one old wooden chair in the
room, and a dirty, rickety little wash
stand. Into this little den. which was
soon to be turned into so horrible a
slaughter-pen, the gray-headed, half
drunken woman and the young pale
faced man were siiown. The price de
manded for the accommodation was 50
cents. The man paid it and said
nothing. Not a soul in the house
heard him speak. At 10 o'clock this
morning a boy whose duty it is
to rouse the tardy lodgers, pushed open
the door of No. 31. and there beheld such
a scene of horror as he will not forget
to his dying day. Stretched out on the
bed, naked from the waist down, lying on
her rizht side, with botli arms twisted
and bent under her, her head enveloped
in fold after foldof cloth,the old woman
lay stark dead on a mattress soaked
with her blood. She had been com
pletely disemboweled, and the terrible
result of the operatiou was drawn
out and scattered over the
entire lower part of the bed.
The boy. after one glance at this ap
palling spectacle, flew away and gave
the alarm. Police Capt. O'Connor "and
two roundsmen made a careful search
of the room, and on the floor close by
the bed. with its haft and blade still
wet with blood, lay the knife with which
the deed was done. It was a cheap, or
dinary table knife, with its olade
broken diagonally off about half its
length and ground down to a sharp edge
and point. This and a small cloth reti
cule in gay colors Capt. O'Connor car
ried to the station house. Coroner
Shultz, at 2 o'clock, went to the room
of the tragedy. The body lay precisely |
as it had been found. The coroner
shoved it irently over on its right aide,
revealing fully
The Awful Nature
of the mutilation. The cut extended
from the middle of the abdomen down
through the length of the ab
dominal cavity. The entrails were
scattered over the lower portion of the
bed. It looked as though they had been
furiously dragged out in a wild frenzy
of blood. Whether any of the parts are
missing, as was the case with the Lon
don murders, has not yet been fuily
ascertained. The woman was either
stone dead or insensible at the time the
mutilation was inHicted. She had
XO. 115.
been strangled to death. Tightly
knotted about i>er throat, so
that it left two red welta
when removed, was a portion of tha
wretched creature's chemise. The knota
were tied so tight that the coroner had
to cut them to get them loose. Over
this and about the head was found a
portion of a sheet, and over this still
was tied the woman's own blue checked
apron. When thu coverings were re\
moved ttie face was seen to be turned
slightly upward. The eyes were
tightly closed. The expression on tha
face was one of agony. The old wom
an, slight and weak as she was. had
evidently strangled hard. Her gray
hair was all undone, and hung in tangleY
about her ghastly tace. The deed must
have been well niirh noiseless. Tne ad
joining room is only separated by a thin
board partition. It would be* almost
possible to hear a whisper through it,
let the man who slept there heard not
a sound. The assassin did his work;
stole quietly away, and Jack the Kirj
per s
First Bloody Mark
had been made in New I'ork. Nobody
had heard the man leave during the
night or morning. He might do it with
out disturbing anybody, as the front
door unlocks easily from the inside.
The murderer, when he had done his
foul work, locked the door as he went*
out and carried the key away, with its
tag 31 attached. An examination of tha
registry book showed that almost
every room on the top floor where the
couple slept had been occupied oven
night. The witness described the man
as wearins a brown coat, a turn
down collar and a derby hat.
A doctor who saw the body before it
was removed says: "Whether by
chance or skill the cut was made so a'a
to effect the object aimed at by the Lon
don Jack the Ripper, namely, the re*'
moval of the uterus. The incision was
begun near the termination ot the back
bone, and carried from below upward 1
in an oblique direction, to a point halt
way up on the right side of the ab
domen. Then, apparently, the knife
was carried around the perLnaeum,butch
er-fashion, and the uterus, rectum and)
bladder pulled out together. The bladder,
is still lying on the bed carefully sepa-j
rated from its -surrounding attachments.,
The rectum has likewise been divided:
off from adjacent structures, and a su-i
perficial examination did not tind thoi
uterus, although it may stili be Lying]
underneath the corpse. "One thing is
certain, the uterus must have been in:
the murderer's hands whether he knew;
it or not. for the presence of the other:
structures without it proves that it!
must have been withdrawn from'
the body. The resemblance be-'
tween this murder and those cred
ited to Jack the Kipper in London is
thus strong enough to warrant the pre-!
sumption that the obiect aimed at was
the same, although the procedure was
sliehtly different." inspector Williams ;

Kaxsas Cut, Mo., April 24.— The
police late to-night received from
Archie, Mo., the details of a horribie
crime— the murder by E. B. Soper of his
wife and two children. Last Tues
day night Soper bought a ticket and
left tor Kansas City on a Missouri

bodies of Mrs. Soper and another child.
Mis. Soper's head and face were
chopped nearly to pieces, and the head
of child was split in twain. An ax
standing in the corner of the room,
the blade covered with blood and
matted hair told the method *ot
the murder. A letter on a table in tho
sitting room was addressed "To the au
thorities or whoever may nnd these
bodies, present." In the letter occurred
this passage: "It was best for me thus
to act rather than desert them. I
have slain them. What could
they have done for a living?
They would have lived miserably.
The letter wns signed by the husband
of the murdered woman and the father
of the children. Soper was a butcher.
He went to Archie from Clay county,
and, although poor, was regarded well
by the community. No motive for tha
