Buffalo, N. Y., Xov. 8.—The following are the names of sixteen of the nineteen men who lost their lives on the steamer Idaho, which sank during the gale on Saturday morning above Long Point, on Lake Erie: Alexander Gillies, captain; George Gibson, first mate; William Clancy, chief engineer; John D.

The names of the two saved are Louis Laforce, Jr., second mate, and William Gill, a deck hand. Went Down lu Kight Fathoms. The captain of the ill-fated steamer Alex Gillies, was one of the most widely known lake seamen. He was 41 years old and knew the lake waters like a book. His brother, Donald Gillies, is captain of the steamer Harlem. The Idaho was of the Western Transit line (New York Central) and foundered in eight fatnoms of water at 4:30 Saturday morning off Long Point on Lake Erie. This point juts out into the lake from the Canadian shore about sixty-five miles west of Buffalo, and its vicinity has been the scene of many disasters. The Idaho left Buffalo Friday afternoon laden with package freight for Milwaukee. A strong southwest gale was blowing at the time, and the weather office had storm signals up for the lake. Nineteen Went Down with Her. Captain Gillies thought he could weather the gale and headed straight up the lake. Shortly after passing Long Point he discovered his mistake and tried to run for shelter. The sea was running very high at the time, and in turning the Idaho shipped a big sea which quenched the fires in the engine room, and the boat was helpless in th? trough of the sea. The captain and ' ;iv were lowering the life boat when the steamer gave a lurch and went down on her side, stern first. Only two of th& crew managed to reach the top ol a single spar that stood above the water There they clung until eight hours later when they were discovered by the outlook on the Maripoea, of the Minnesota line. How the Two Men Were Rescued. - The effort of those on board the Mariposa to rescue the two men involved the greatest possible danger. The sea was running very high, and life boats could not be launched. Lines were thrown to the two men, but their arms and legs had stiffened around the spar and they could do nothing to help themselves. The Mariposa ran as close to the spar as possible and efforts were made to grasp the men while passing. This was repeated several times, and with success at last. The two survivors were brought to Buffalo. Both were in an exhausted state and unable to give a connected story of the wreck. The Idaho was an old boat, having been built in 1863. She was 220 feet long and had a gross tonnage of 1,110. QUESTION OF THE SEALERlfeS. What trie Canadian Statesmen Are Coming; Men? For. Washington, Nov. S.—A dispatch from Ottawa, On:., confirms what was said in these 'dispatches Saturday about th« purpose of the visit to this city of Premier Laurier and Minister of Marine Davies, of Canada, and their probable connection with the seal conference. Minister Davies said, regarding the visit spoken of in the foregoing: "The facts are these: When it was arranged in London between the American authorities and Lord Salisbury that this conference should take place I promised to attend the same in person. The meeting- is to be one of experts, and nothing more. We will be present and may ask questions during the progress of the meeting, if we see fit, but we will take no other part. When the convention is concluded we will return to Ottawa and will be in a position to advise our col leagues whether, according to the evi dence submitted, any changes in th« regulations would be desirable." The dispatch adds: "There seems, however, to be another motive underlying the visit of Premier Laurler to Washington. It is understood that th< purpose of his visit in company with Sir Louis Davies is to confer with the American authorities upon the possibility of arranging a basis for reciprocal trade relations between the two countries. When questioned upon this point Sir Louis Davies frankly stated that the American government shows any disposition to discuss trade matters premier a.nd himself were prepared t« enter upon an Informal conference in. relation to any proposals looking toward reciprocity." The sealing, treaty signed Saturday by the United States, Japan and Russia, is acknowledged to be deficient and lame on account of the refusal of Great Britain to join in the convention. Colonel Foster, chairman of the commission, still has hopes that Great Britain will come In. but the strong point of the play IB that when three neighbors agree on a line for the best interests of four, as the three believe, the fourth neighbor, that holds out, is in an uncomfortable position. CONTRACTS MUST BIND BOTH. KILLED BY EXPLOSION AND FIRE. Three Men of -Whom but a. Piece of Hu« man Foot Could He Found, New Martinsville, W. Va., Nov. 8.—At Pine Fork, this county, Saturday William Conn, of Cuba, N.(T., drove to the nitro-glycerine magazine with a two- hor.'?e wagon to get twelve gallons of nitro-glycerine to shoot some oil wells over which he had supervision. While he was inside another two-horse wagon with two men who have not been identified drove up. Before these strangers alighted the magazine blew up with a report heard ten miles away. The only thing found that ever was human was a piece of a man's foot. All else—three human beings, four horses, two wagons- were as if they had never existed. Where the magazine stood was a.deep cavern. Windows were broken in every dwelling within a radius of half a mile. Texarkana. Ark.. Nov. S. —Fire Saturday morning destroyed four steam lumbers kilns, five lumber sheds and one and a quarter million feet of lumber, the property of the Central Coal. Coke and Lumber company. The aggregate loss is over S100.000. The roof of a shed fell in while about, forty men wen? under it, and it is believed several bodies will be found in the ruins. Several men were taken out injured, three of whom will die. Charles Korn, a white carpenter; Edwin Barren, an employe of the Southern Furniture company, zmd a negro laborer are the fatally injured. When the fire was hottest a whirlwind was created and another large shed that stood nearby was struck and torn into kindling, as if a destructive cyclone had struck it. Galena, Ills., Nov. S. —Andrew Kislley, over SO years old, who lived in East Galena a number of years, is supj>osed to have been burned to death Thursday afternoon.

XOT. 3. — Effward Hamilton, employed at the Worcester National back, killed his wife ud daughter and then shot hims«lf tcrdaj-. State Supreme Court Decision of Vo*t Interest to Organized Labor, Little Rock,' Ark., Nov. S. —The supreme court of Arkansas Saturday handed down a decision which is of the • greatest interest to the public in general, as well as to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers in particular. It is well known the locomotive engineers are ail employed under a contract by which seniority of service gives priority of right to employment, so that when slackness of business demands that one or more engineers shall be discharged the last engineer employed shall be the first dismissed. One of the senior engineers having been discharged he brought suit on the ground that he was discharged without cause and in violation of his contract of employment. It was conceded that his contract gave him the right to quit at pleasure, and the court denied his right to recover, on the ground that no contract can be valid that gives only one party thereto the right to terminate it. The court holds that the right to rescind or terminate a contract must be mutual. The decision is far-reaching, affecting as it does organized labor of all classes working under contract agreements.

He and Engineer McCarty were on the platform, but ran and caught the train as it was moving out, the fireman, Henly Abe!, being Compelled at the point of a cocked revolver to pull the train up to the stock yards, about two miles distant. The conductor left the train at the stock 'yards where the robbers had ordered the train stopped, and ran baclc to the station, telegraphing the news to Division Superintendent Hubbard s.1 iallup and Sheriff Hubbell.

They helped themselves to a •jumber of packages containing gold and ilver coin, which they placed in a sack ncl then left the car. going in the di- ection of the Malpoi ricks, where their I horses were picketed. The express car was on fire and Abel thoroughly frightened, and after seeing the robbers at a safe distance he backed the engine and express car into the other portion of the train left standing at the stock yards, and in consequence the. express car, flay coach and chair car were telescoped, and all three destroyed by flre.
