GREAT DISASTER
Fonr Hundred Prisons Perished
by the Wreck of the
Salier,
Which Went on the Corrobodo
Hocks, Off the Coast of
Spain,
En Rente From Bremen to Bt e

Ay res—Mostly
Steerage
Passengers.
LONDON, Dec. 13 A special dispatch
front i.'.'.im, says tln.l ihe North C»tr»
man L.oyd steamer Salier, wa
wrecked on the night of Dec. 7, four
nines north of Vil.ugareia, Spain, and
214. nii.es from land. The dispatch
further says that she must have broken
up almost immediately, .s parts of the
steamer have already washed ashore.
She ha.l on board '^10 passengers,
mostly steerage, and a crew of tt5 men.
All on board were drowned.
The Corrobodo rocks, on which it is
believed the Salter was lost, are situ
ate" oil the southwest coast of Cor
cnna. and should have been given a
v:de berth before the steamer headed
last ward and then in a northeasterly
direction for the bay leading up to
lllagerisa.
CORUKNA, Spain, Dec. 12.—The Sai
ler, which was lost off this coast Dec.
7, was commanded by Captain Wempe.
The steamer had a general cargo. The
disaster occurred during a dense fog
and very heavy weather. The Salier
had a fearful passage from Bremen to

this port. Two of her boats were
swept overboard by the heavy seas
which beat over her, and she sustained
other damages from the same cause. It
is believed that about 400 persons per
ished. The steamer struck during the
night of Monday last on a ledge of
rocks about two and a half ntiles off
Cape Carrubedo. on her way from this
place to Villagarcia, bound for Buenos
Ayres. A large amount of wreckage is
reported to have washed ashore. The
search made for possible survivors of
the wreck has so far been without
result, and but little hope is
entertained of rescuing any of
of the passengers or crew. The Salier
was an old vessel, which the North
Lloyd company had agreed to sell to
an Italian firm, trading between Italian
and American ports. Imt owing to
some slight disagreement as to the
terms, the deal was not conipletod and
the steamer was sent on r. not her voy
age. She was consideied to be in
every wny seaworthy. and the only
reason the North l-erni.n Lloyd com
pany had for selling the Salier, was
that there were more modern boats of
the same line in miciiness to take her
place. Her last trip across the Atlantic
Was n.ude in iast September, when she
left Baltimore for Bremen, arriving
there sately on Sept. The Salier
was of 3,000 tons gross register, wa«
S51 feet long, brig-rigged, and had a
wngle propeaer.
Of the steerage passengers, there
were over 100 Russians, about 25 Gali
cians, some Germans and about 'i00
Spaniards, according to the estimates,
all on their way to the Argentine Re
public, looking for ndw homes for them
selves and families. If the disaster had
occurred after the Salier touched at
Villagarcia, the loss of life would have
been much greater, as it is understood
there were nearly 100 more passengers,
men, women and children, awaiting at
that port to embark on board the Salier
for Buenos Ay res.

AGAINST THE iiKAlI\i.
Attorney (ietiprtil of r*nii»jrl**ni» May
tiring Action.
HAKKISBIKO. Pa.. Dc?. 12. Attorney
General McOormick may bring suit
against the reorganized Heading raii
road to determine whether it is a bona
tide corporation. The Reading com
pany claims to act under a charter
grauted by special act of the assembly
in lbTl, with large and unlimited pow
ers. By the constitution, which be
came operative Jan. 1. 1S74, all private
harters under which lona lide organ
izations had not been effected and busi
ness commenced at that tiui^, were de
clared void.
The attorney general has been led to
believe that the charter of flte Reading
company fell under that provision ot
the constitution ami that possibly an
attempt was being made to avoid an
other provision forbidding joint owner
ship or control of mining corporation*
and railroad corporations.

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 12.—The unex
pected arrival of ex-Queen Liliuokalani
from Honolulu evoked much interest
and'gave rise to no little speculation as
to the object of her trip. Her only at
tendants were a man and woman serv
ant. and even het Sah Francisco agent
and former chamberlain. Colonel Mac
Farlai:e.
did
not know of the ex-
queen's arrival until he received a sum
mons from her on the arrival of the
steamer.
Liliuokalani declines to be inter
viewed ami will give no information
regarding tli-* length of her visit here,
nor her future plans. Her feliow pa—
senycrs ou the steamer gathered the
idea that she wi.l go to Washington
and call upon President Cleveland
the hope that the United States wih
take some steps looking to the rettora
