Milwaukee. April "20. - Fourteen
workmen lost their lives today in the
fierce storm which lashed Lake Michi
gan. They wore employed in the con
struction of tne new waterworks in the
lake tunnei, being encaged in bricking
up a shaft in the cut 3,000 feet from the
shore. The hurricane swept away
the frail structure which had been
built upon the top of the cut
to shelter the men, and dashed
them into the see ing lake. Through
the heroic efforts of the life-saving crew
James Miller was saved. He is the only
one vf the fifteen workmen who escaped
with his life, lie is lying at the Emer
gency hospital, too weak to tell his
his awful story. The work was in charge
of Shailter & Schneiglon, Chicago con
tractor::, whose loss will be about £10,
--000. Work upon the tunnel will be de
layed several months. The list of the
drowned is as follows:

A terrible sea has been raging since
yesterday morning. Last night the
swell increased, and toward 11 o'clock
the sea became so furious that the shed
built on ihe crib began to tremble. To
ward 12 o'clock the timbers supporting
the house gave way and the planks be
gan to wash ashore. At 4 o'clock this
morning the last rafter of the shed fell
from the top of the crib, leaving the
men at the mercy of the waves.
At 9 o'clock (.'ant. Peterson and the
life-savins crew arrived at the water
works. The sea was running high.
Waves fifteen and twenty feet were
washing over the piers and the crib.
He said it was impossible to reach the
crib with his life boat. If a tug could be
obtained there might be some hope of
landinir. The Starke was secured and
T!te DaßgeroHi Trip 12:>i£iui.
The tug cleared the harbor, but was
obliged to turn back, as she could not be
controilt-i: in the raging sea. When the
news tliat the crib could not b^ readied
was announced at the water works,
ureat excitement prevailed. Relatives
ot the missing men volunteered to at
tempt the trip it the boat could be se
cured. There was; no boat to be had,
how ever. An attempt to reach the crib
iv a small boat would have resulted in
sure deatu for its occupants.
At 9 o'clock about :,'■>< people had as
sembled on the shore. The scenes were
the most path< tic witnessed in th;s city
since the Newiiall house lire. Wiv^s
an! children of the victims patrolled the
shore for the bodies of their loved ones.
No bodies were found, however. Shortly
after '.• o'clock, the wife of JacK Mc-
Bride, appeared. .She was almost heart
bi'okcn and oitifuliy gazed out toward the
crib. Shortly afterward another woman,
supporting an aged man. slowly came
down the step- leading to the pumping
works. Both were neeping bitterly.
They were tlie wife and lather of Mike
Dwyer. Tne aged man couid be com
forted. He insisted on staying on the
beach and watching for a sign of his
son. Mrs. Dwyer was taken to the office
in the water" work-. Another pitiful
scene was a group of Polish women.
The husbands of two.of the women are
among the io-jt.

At .) o'clock the beach was crowded
with weeping women. Some were
wives, others sisters. Children were
moaning for their father. At 10 o'clock
every hope for the safety ot the men
had vanished, when suddenly a figure
was seen creeping out of the shaft.
Then came another. In a few moments
six men were on the crib clinging to the
engine, which is still intact. With
the aid of a powerful field
glass the movements of the men
were plainly discerned. The men
must have "suffered fearfully from
the cold, as their actions signified. They
huddled together closely and tried bard
to warm themselves. They remained
on the crib about fifteen minutes, when
one by one they disappeared. The dis
appearance did not worry the spectators,
who now thought that the men were all
safe. It was thought that the men on
the crib had t:o:ie back Into the shaft,
where, it was suuposed, their comrades
were in safe refuge. The news that the
men bad been seen cheered the women,
who now had hopes for the safety ot
The sea became calmer, and CapJ.
Peterson, of the lite-saving station, noti
fied the officers at the pumping station
that another attempt to reach the crib
would be made. At 11 o'clock the tug

minutes and then dove into the water.
Everybody "11 shore Knew what the
man's actions meant. There was no
longer any doubt that the men were
lost, and that some of them had died
while the lielpless spectators on shore
were look i on. When Olsen was
drawn bade to the lioat it was seen that
the helpless form of a man was strapped

only •survivor, who was half-dead from

Vi .N(i. that is, net any farther than to
see that it is properly done. 1 do not
think thata building could have been
erected on the crib that could have
withstood such a storm, Such accidents
are unforeseen. Chicago had one with
her crib, when it was being built."
Miller tave the following account of
the accident tonight:
"It was ;» o'clock in the morning when
we toumi that water wad entering the
air tight compartment of the shaft
whore we had taken refuse for the
night.'"We took a vote to decide whether
we wounl risk leaving the shaft. It was
decided to leave. Only five of us suc
ceeded in reaching tne outside. The
nine men who were not strong enough
to net out. were drowned by water com
ing into the shaft, and tour out of the
live who got out were mangled or
drowned t>y the tremendous floods
which were lashed over tr.e crib. At
what hour the house was washed away
1 do not know. It had disappeared
when we get out of the shaft."
Wftnr mind the !>«>«.t ruction.
From her station in the light house at
North Point Mrs. G. 8. Stebbitis wit
nessed the destruction of the house
which occupied a position on the top of
the crib. She says it was washed away
about 5:30 o'clock, and that it disap
peared in some huge waves which
seemed to swallow it. For some time
before the waves could be, seen
dashing to the top of the house, and
lor several minutes at a time not a ves
tige of the crib or top building could be
seen. The waves eair.e with great fre
qaency and force, as was apparent by
the manner in which they could be seen
dashing against the break water and
crib, striking which they would appar
ently explode with terrible force
and the spray would leap lnsrh
into the air. Just before the
house disappeared, Mrs. Steb'oins saw
several boards from the side of the
building torn loose and shoot upward
with the waves. The opening thus
made seemed to give the angry wind the
opportunity it sought in its work of de
struction, and, as though with one
mighty effort, the entire house was
lifted into the air, and a second later a
mighty wave engulfed the entire build
ing.and it disappeared as if swept away
by an avalanche. When the wave had
spent its force, Mrs. fctebbins saw the
machinery and other heavy articles
aloue remaining upon the spot
Where tlic House Had Stood.
The waves would frequently cover
and hide these from her sight, and in
less than twenty minutes after the
house was wiped out of existence, the
entire machinery and whatever else
that had been left was lifted bodily into
the air apparently by the combined force
of wave and wind, "and everything was
hurled into the raging sea, feet below the
level of me crib. The destruction of
the bouse and machinery was the work
of but a few minutes. Mrs. Stebbins
was able to discover no evidence of life
or activity about the place before or
after the house was taken, and she was
inclined to think the men had long be
fore that time gone below to escape the
frightful waves and awful wind, which
sho declares to have been tiie most
terrible and severe witnessed from
her place of observation in
twelve years. She declares that the
waves rose much higher, and came with
more apparent force and frequency than
has b'.-en noted by her in that time. She
was on duty nearly all night, and thinks
that it was the most awful night on the
lake possible to imagine. The roaring
was something beyond description, and
unlike anything ever before heard.
Nothing could be heard in or about the
light house except the dashing of the
waves, and the long, awtul moan of the
wind as it swept along at an eighty

Tho Sole Survivor Tells of the Ex-
perience of the Men.
Milwaukee, April 30.— Miller, the
man who was rescued from tlie crib by
a life-saving crew, was able this
evening to give the story
of the tragedy. He said the
crib house was so dangerous
that all hands, fifteen in number, went
down into the air lock. They were quite
comfortable thtre until the house was
blown away. They knew it was gone
when the air pump stopped working.
This was about 6 o'clock. When the
pump stopped, the air kept growing
worse until 8::J0 o'clock, when it be
came so bad that it was proposed by
some to leave the lock and take chance's
outside. The subject was discussed for
some time and finally all agreed to it, us
it was found they could not live
much longer where they were.
Accordingly the air lock was
opened and the water allowed to come
in. Mcliride. Dwyer, Gregg, Johnson,
Leikowitz and Miller succeeded in get
ting out of the lock to the surface. To
do tiiis they had to clim'j up through
ten feet of water. The other nine,

and they did not get on the nil) and
were drowned in tne lock. When he
got on the crib. Miller wound the wire
cable, which runs from a drum to
ward the shore, around i. s arm,
and was then able to hold on until tlie
life-boat arrived. He says that Dwyer,
Gregg,. Johnson and Leikowitz held on
about half an hour, and then, one by
one, were swept a«ray. Mcßride held
on until within ten miuutes of the ar
rival of the boat, <"m\ he. too, suc
cumbed, and was washed oti before tne
arrival of tlit boat. Miller complains
bitterly of the way m which the men on
the crib were left to the fury of last
The action of tlie contractors is very
curious, to s;ty the lear-t. Not only
have they ret used to eive out the
names ot the i!:en who were mi the crib,

foreman, placed a man at the dour .it

Treasury Notes Will Continue

About $740,000,000 of Gold
Coin and Bullion in the
With the People's Aid Exist
in? Difficulties Will Be
Washington, April 90.— Secretary
Carlisle tonight made the following
statement regarding the financial situa
'•In the exercise of the discretionary
power conferred upon tho secretary of
the treasury by the act of .July 14, 18-.W,
he has been paying gold tor the coin
treasury notes issued for the purchase
Of silver bullion, and he will continue
to do so as long as lio lias goid legally
available tor that purpose. Undei
this process the govern merit has
been and is now paying gold
for silver bullion, and storing the silver
in its vaults, when it is as useless for
any purpose of circulation or redemp
tion as iron, lead or any other com
modity. The government in the first
place issues a coin treasury note in pay
ment for silver bullion, and then the
coin treasury note is presented at a sub
treasury, and the gold is paid out for it;
so that the effect is precisely tho same
as if the gold were paid directly for the
silver in the first instance. About fSOO,
--0)0 ot the gold which was
\\ illidrau :i From tiie Siibtreasury
on last Tuesday for shipment abroad
was paid out ot these coin treasury
notes. No order has been made to stop
the payment of gold upon these notes,
nor baa any one been authorized to say
that such an order would be issued.
The purpose of the government to pre
serve its own credit unimpaired and
maintain the parity of the two metals
by all lawful means will not be aban
doned under any circumstances. Iv
view of the existing legislation the only
question for consideration is aa to the
measures that ought to be adopted to
insure the accomplishment of these
purposes and upon this question
there is, of course, room for
wide difference of opinion. The
total stock of gold coin and gold bullion
now in this country, includine what is
held by the treasury, as well as what is
held by banks and individuals, amounts
to about £740,0000,000. When i came
into the treasury department on the 7th
day of March the amount of free gold
on hand bad been reduced to $957,000,
but by arrangements with Western
banks it was increased, until, on the
Ist ot April, it amounted to nearly
18,000,000. Then heavy shipments
began to be made, and two days ago we
had only about $40,000, but it now
•mounts to ?555.000, after deducting
what has been withdrawn from the
subtreasury today for shipment. Ar
rangements are now in progress by
M^r^ Hill I* to Bs Procured
from tiie West, and 1 hope (hat a suni
cient quantity will be secured to keep
the tcokl reserve intact. There is sold
enough in the country to meet all the
requirements of the situation, and if
all who are really interested in main
taining a sound and stable currency
would assist the secretary of the treas
ury to the extent of their abilities, the
existing difficulties would soon be re
In addition to this statement Mr. Car
lisle said that $SOO,OOO in sold had been
taken out of the sublreasury in New
York today for export. The class of
money paid into the subreasurv for
this gold withdrawal included £400,000
in gold certitieates, which, to that
amount, did not reduce the gold reserve,
because they themselves were practi
cally gold. So the actual gold reduction
ot the day was orly 6400.0U0, leaving the
balance as stated above. This is the
tirst considerable amount of gold certifi
cates paid into the subtreasury for gold
export for many years, and encourages
treasury officials to hope that the banks,
seeing the situation, will continue to
present gold certificates in part pay
ment at least tor gold withdrawn for

He Is Ordered to Cease "Shelter-
ing" Chilian Offenders.
Washington, April — Senor Jon
Anibla Cruz, charge d'affaires of the
Chilian legation, was one of the earliest
callers at the state department today.
He held in his hands a newspaper. dis
patch announcing that Blendot Holly
and Col. Fuentes, the alleged iialma
cedists to whom Minister Esran had
offered shelter at the American legation,
and whose surrender had been de
manded by the Chilian authorities, had
made their escape from the legation;
that Fuentes had been captured by the
Chilian guards stationed in the neigh
borhood of the United States legation,
but that Holly was still at "large.
Senor Cruz had a long talk with the
secretary on this subject. Secretary
Uresham, who has heretofore declined
to give oat any information in regard to
this Chilian refagee case, subsequently
gave this statement to the press:
"A charge was pending against Fuen
tos and Holly for violating the municipal
jaws of Chili, and Minister Egan was
instructed by Secretary Grtsham that
lie would cease sheltering them."
This was all the information vouch
safed -for. Nothing was said as to when
the instructions were sent to Minister
E:. r an to cease sheltering them, or as to
whether they escaped before or after
Mr. Euan received those instructions,
or with or without his supposed con
nivance. The only information deriv
able from this communicated paragraph
not already in possession of the public
is a matter of inference only. There is
a wide difference recognized in inter
national law between admitting to
"asylum" and simply affording '•shel
ter." ••Asylum" is such a refuse as
practically rt Drives the person harbored
! rom the operations of the laws of the
country and places him under the pro
tection of. the tlag of the country shield
ing him. "Shelter" has a significance
far less important and leaves those to
whom it is accorded amenable to the
laws of the country. Fro in the word ill
of t x i i - official communication of the sec
retary of state it is evident that it was
••=iieiter" and not ••asylum" which Min
ister ilijati gave the refugees, and, as
the} were charge;! with violating the
municipal laws, Mr. Egan was ordered
to cease sheltering them.

Ireland and Moore appeared in jet
black. At the end of the tenth round
Keferee Barues declared the contest a
draw. This was in accord with
the general concensus of opinion.
The Omaha Kid and Ed Schulenbure
also had a draw. They sparred ten
pretty rounds, nnd the referee in giv
ing a decision conceded that had the
contest been tor a million dollars he
would have been forced to have given
the decision in favor of the Omaha Kid.
Still, Scuuleuburg had done handsome
work. and Mr. Barnes believed
the decision— a draw— was proper
Jack Ryan, of St. Paul, at the end of
ten rounds with Jack Stone, of Butte,
was awarded the contest. It was a good
exposition of the manly art, and the
patrons of athletics who were fortunate
enouerh to witness the entertainment
are well satislied that the Phueuix
should be encouraged.
There were several clever prelimiinar
ies. Powers, who wrestled a draw with
Peter Schumacher at the Phoenix three
weeks ago, gave an elegant turn with a
growing aspirant to catch-as-catch-can
honors, and he won three straight falls.
The clever little Appleton brothers
boxed three rounds, as did Harris and
Bodan, Curtiss and Curtiss, Taylor and
Stewart, Pease and McDonou^h, Nichols
and Bordeaux, and Rhode and Baiton.
The next entertainment will occur
about the middle of May.

Cora Taylor Captures the Stake
I.ace at Memphis.
Memphis, April 20.— The seventh
day's racing at Montgomery Park was
witnessed by about 4.000 persons. The
card was not as attractive as on the pre
vious days, but those present en
joyed the sport thoroughly. Two of
the five favorites won, the first being a
lay-down for Oliver at the very prohibi
tive odds of 1 to 5, while on Cora Taylor
they were almost as tilth t. Rally, an
other odds on favorite, disappointed the
talent badly. The track was fast, but a
stiff wind lip the home stretch kept the
time down. The event of the day was
the third race— the Mineola stakes—
which Cora Taylor won all the way,
leading from ring fall to finish. Among
the two-year-olds the winner did not
