Fears for The Bermudas Washington, Sept 4. The hydrographic office has received a letter from Capt. Leo Voegel of the steamer Citv of Palatka, briefly describing the effects of the earth quake at sea. He had just left Charleston and was twelve miles off the harbor at Port Royal in eight and a half fathoms where he expereinced a terrible rumbling sensation which lasted one and a half min utes. Some anxiety was felt with regards to the possible effects of the earthquake at Bermudas, i he islands lie directly in what is now supposed to be the path of the most violent agitation and their physical features are such as to warrant the fear that they experienced a severe disaster and were per haps annihilated. The Strike Settled. St. Louis, Sept 4 The strike of the coal miners at Bevier, Mo., has been settled.

Larned Republicans. Larned, Kansas, Sept 4. Thhe republi cans of Pawnee county met to-day in dele gate convention. The proceedings were harmonious and enthusiastic and atten dance full resulting in the following nomi nations : Representative W. C. Dwares ; Probate Judge, W. P. Peters ; County At torney, Nelson Adams ; Superintendent of Public Instruction. A. H. Lupfer ; Dis trict Clerk, D. M. Rose. A Scientific View. Charleston, S. C, Sept 4. Professof W. T. McGee, of the United States geological survey, went to Summerville on Friday to investigate the immediate or remote causes of the recent earthquake. He stopped at Ten Mile Hill station around which the earthquake was particularly active and paid special attention to the matter which was thrown up from the craters, which are numerous through the belt of country ex tending from a distance about forty-seven miles and from Ten Mile Hill north and south and likewise east and west for an indefinite distancealong the sea coast Prof. McGee collected specimens of the soil and mud which had been thrown up and samples of the waters which flowed from the fissures, taking particular note of the cavities onthe farm of Mr. Chan. Lee the largest of which is at out nix een feet square and sixteen feet deep. At Summerville Piof. McGee continued his investigations and talked freely with geutlemen there, One of thesse gives the Aew and Courier a sketch of Prof. McGee's statements. Prof. McGee said that the orn amental ork and ginger bread work in Charleston was in many instances oat of proportion to the size of the building and these parts would be apt to fall and carry away portions of the general structure. He said that when he left Washington he thought that he would have very little dif ficulty in determining the approximate course of the earthquake, but confessed to having been much puzzled by the observa tion. Contrary to expectations, he found that the fissures were .not uniform in their direction, some extended from north to south, others fmm east to west and on this accoun he would hesitate to give any sci entific declaration. He did, however, give the opinion that the shocks were the result of local land slides. By the term local he does not mean that the shakes can be traced to any particular pi are at Summerville, Charleston or elsewhere and remarks that there was no connection be tween the shakes and the suppressed vol tanic action. His impression is that the area covered by the land slide theory has been from forty to one hundred miles under the bed of the sea. He was couti dent, morever, that tne worst was passed. This statement however, was made prior to the shock at 11 o'clock last night He left Summer ville this evening for the phosphate district where he will continue his observations. Prof. McGees remarks have had an excel lent effect L'p to yesterday about 1,000 people or one-third or the whole popula tion had left Summerville and it is expect ed that Prof McGees statement will stop any further exodus. Mr. Simuel Ham mond, who was reported as dangerously injured, and dying is now doing well, Ml leg, ' however, is fractured and he has ynany severe contusions, iiie leeling is nlecidedlv more cheerful and a better tone naturally prevails in the community. The workmen are at work upon the in jured buildings putting them in order and as much as possible is being done to pro tect the interiors from the rains which are expected. Another element which increas es confidence is the organization to-day of a strong relief committee which will take entire charge of the provision of food, clothing and quarters as far as necessary for those who have suffered from the earthquake. A considerable number of tents have been received from the government and others are expected to-morrow. The orphan house, alms houe and the catholic orphan asylum have been provided with sufficient shelter. An encampment for other refugees in military style is now being formed on the sou h battery. There will be an en campment for colored refugees on Marion Square. More Shakes; Charleston, Sept. 4. At 9:30 to-night another earthquake shock of about five seconds duration, the first of the day, start led the shook up people. It was not nearly as severe as the -hock of last night AT OLI MBI A.

An exciting shooting ! affair between Andy Johnson and Thomas Scott, two well-known farmers living a few miles south of here, occurred last evening, which may result in the death of Scott The alleged facts concerning the cases are these: Scott has missed some calves from his farm, and while huntiog.them learned that Johnson had poscessic of them on his farm a mile distant Scott, accompanied by his ton and another boy, all on horse back, rode upon Johnson's land looking for the cattle. Johnson appeared on his black stallion and claimed damages by Scott's cattle. A dispute arose and the men agreed to settle the'matteratthe house. Both men rode rapidly, Johnson to get his self-cocking revolver and Scott to escape. Johnson jumped fences with bis steed, and procuring his pistol met Scott near the house. A- he turned to break for the road a few yards distant, Johnson yelled, "I you; what are you doing here ?" and rap idly emptied his revolver, lodging three balls in Scott's anatomy and two in the horse. An old feud between the men is be lt ind the tragedy, and as Scott refused to prosecute by law, more trouble is antici pated should he live. A BIG BLAZE.
