Every piece of news which reaches Madrid not only confirms the most setisa tional reports but pictures the disaster in more vivid colors than hitherto portrayed. J IBe by Cvutrabaud Ilyoautite.

A report of such awful intensity way stations, where they caused telegrams to be sent to the government and to the au thorities of other cities imploring succor for the wounded aud asking that Ere en gines be promptly despatched to the scene. The cities of Va'ladolid, Burges, Bilboa, and Barcelona quickly responded. Fire engines, puvsioans, medicine and food were soon setit on, and nothing was left undone to relieve the distress. Large forciS.iif troops were also dispatched in Satitander, the soldiers rendering most valuable assistance in the work of salvage nd rescue. The !os sustained by property owners and by .;x.r people, who had lost their all through the explosion and fire, is im mense. The loss of life is not yet deter mined, but some hundreds of dead bodies have been identified, while others will never be recognized from the mass of blackened trunks, heads and limbs which have been gathered together in heaps around the fatal spot. Mauy of the vic tims, in addition, are unknown and there seems to be no way of telling how many met their death in the water. The shower of iron from the dynamite- laden steamer thrown into the air bytbe -explosion fell upon nearly all parts of the town find injured buildings at a remarka ble distance from the place where the steamer actually exploded. Some idea of the force of the' explosion can be formed from the fact that a -. man was killed bv a piece of I-on from the Cabo Macbichaco at PenaCasillo, two killometers distant from where the steamer blew up. Ko correct estimate can hs formed of the ioss of life, some oilicials claiming that thousands lost their lives, while oth ers hold that the loss ot life will not be over 500, and mnv lie lower. was heard that it shook the earth for miles around, caused bouses to totter, smashed ; every w icdow within the radius of a rifle : shot, filled the air with a mass of flying iron, burning wood, blackened timbers, ' and scorched I emus w liicu soon after fell, ! a dea h-dealing hail, upon the ceighbor !iag hou-cH, s altering death and destruc- i tion wherever it crushed downward. MANGLED BODIES HURLED UPWARD, leenr-rensibly t'riglitlul ERirt f the Tcr rnl liutliimt The scene following the blowing up of tbe steamer is almost indescribable, and the effect of the explosion of these 4S0 cases of dynamite will hardly be believed. The power of the explosive shot tons of iron into the air where it mingled with the burning fragments of the steamship, tug and wooden qnay, as well as with the mangled Ikm lies of hundreds of the unfor tunate teople who were burled upward at tbe same time, liver tbe adjoining build' ings fell a shower of iron, followed by huge pieces of wood and the remains of human bodies, and above all dropped naming spiiuters wnicn set fire to bun dreds of buildings causing a scene of panic similar, one would imacine. to the one which would have succeeded t be burst ing forth of a volcano at the w liter's edge. Forty I a Vessel's Crew Cremated The force of the exploding dynamite caused such a concussion that in addition to shaking hundreds ot buildings off their foundations it actually tank a hundred email crafts in the harbor iu addition to setting fire to large number of other vessels and starting conflagrations upon several of ti e larger ships, including the Alfonso XII, which vessel caught fire so suddenly and burned so fiercely that forty of her crew lost their lives on board of bar.
