Fifteen Llvcta Known to Have Keen Lost in the Disaster—The Number of IV i- sons Killed by the lleccnt Jnitnr.r>> • Earthquake Now .Estimated at 10,OO-'). i Casualties, NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 80.—Steamer Oliver Beirne, from St. Louis, burnt';! Millikens Bend, twenty-five miles n'- •. "Vicksburg, shortly after 3 o'clock ». i Fifteen lives are known to be lost i-. more are thought to have perished. V- boat was on her way to New Drier.;;She had 110 passengers on board. The Beirne, after getting into f:> Mississippi river, accepted freight on ];••;• way down, and when she reached K:l- likens Bend she had aboard several hundred bales of cotton in addition to u, quantity of miscellaneoxis freight. She reached Milliketis Bond during the evening and landed there, intending to resume her trip down the river at daybreak. Most of the passengers and crew were asleep when at 3:30 o'clock an Alarm of Fire- AVus Sounded, and scarcely before any one was awake the boat was aflame. The blaze originated on the lower deck, from what cause no one has yet been able to learn, and communicating to tho dry cotton was soon burning with great iierceness. The crew, lo^ctlier with the passengers who were awake, gave the alarm to those who were asleep. „ A rush was immediately made for ;he forward part of the boat and many got off in safety, but that avenue of escape and others were soon cut off and the unfortunate passengers and crew were forced to plunge into the water. The crew of the boat displayed commendable coolness* and every effort was made to rescue those who had not readied the shore. Kitlier Burned or l>rowiiod. Chief Engineer Birdbi \v launched the yawl of the boat, arid he with other men succeeded in picking up many of the struggling unfortunates in the •water. Some, however, were beyond reac:: 1 and and were either burned to death or sank beneath tli 3 waters to rise 110 more. The alarm \vas communicated to the people of Millikens Bend. and the bank of the river was soon crowded with the villagers who assisted in tho work of rescue and hospitably threw open their homes to survivors of the disaster. TEN THOUSAND DEAD. A VILLAGE IN RUINS. The Town of Clinton, N. «f.t Vlilted fcy » Mo»t Difiaitffbttii Conflagration. GLUTTON,,N.J>, Qct. 'Sl.-^this Village wa? visited during the night by the most disastrous fire that has ever occurred in its history. It is impossible to say how the fire started but it ia supposed to have been the work of an incendiary. There is no fire department in Clinton, but the inhabitants worked all night long battling with the flames and it was not until morning that the fire was gotten under control. Nineteen buildings were burned in all. The total loss will foot up about $100,000, there is some insurance on this, but the exact amount is unknown. Business is almost suspended and the people of the village are out gazing ruefully on the ruins. The homeless have been provided for by neighbors. ALL HANDS WENT DOWN. nnd UNCLE SAM ANSWERED, CHILI MAKES A TEft REPLY EOAN. TO MINIS" A Four-Masted Sithooner Founders Not a Soul Kacapes. BOSTON, Oct. 28.—The schooner Seraphine has arrived. Her captain says that on Saturday last he saw a four- masted schooner founder thirty-five miles south of Matinicus. All hands went down with the vessel. Very severe weather prevailed but the four- masted schooner seemed to bo in good condition. About 4 o'clock in the afternoon her distress signals were displayed. The Seraphine bore down to aid her but had only covered about half the distance separating the vessels when the stranger gave a sudden lurch and disappeared beneath the waves. Tlie Seraphine cruised around for several hours but found no one to aid. The captain describes the lost vessel as being of about 800 tons capacity and a black hull. CYCLONE IN OHIO. Thirty Houses Destroyed by Wind at Coiineiuit—Vessels 'Reported Wrecked. CONNEAVT, O., Oct. 27.—A terrible cyclone struck this city shortly after G o'clock p. m., destroying about thirty houses and causing a loss of $100,000. The terrific wind storm was accompanied by very little rain. Record's butter tub factory, worth $50,000, was completely wrecked. The Lake Shore depot was also demolished and wreckage strewn upon the tracks for half a mile rendering them impassible for several hours. Both the Nickel Plate and Lake Shore telegraph wires are tangled up on the ground. Many fine residences were unroofed and otherwise damaged. The Chilian Minister of Foreign Affairs Snys the Demands Made Are Not Ac- ceptable—fae Will Ilncogulzt) 'Oiity tho ' Authority of His Own Co tin try to Judge the Offenders. WASHINGTON, Oct. 30.—The department of state has received a telegram from Minister Egan dated Santiago, Oct. 28, in which he gives the following as the reply of the Chilian government to the president's telegram of Oct. 28, asking reparation for the recent murder of American sailors in the streets of Valparaiso. The minister for foreign affairs replied that "the government of the United States formulates demands and advances threats that, without being cast back with acrimony, are not acceptable, nor could they be accepted in the present case, or in any other of like nature. He does not doubt the sincerity, rectitude or expertness of investigation on board the Baltimore, but will recognize only the jurisdiction and authority of hia own country to judge and punish the guilty in Chilian territory. He says the administrative and judicial authorities have been investigating affairs; that judicial authority under Chilian law is secret and the time is not arrived to make known the result, although he does not recognize any other authority competent to judge criminal cases than that established by the Chilian people. Until the time arrives to disclose the result of the investigation he cannot admit that the disorders in Valparaiso or the silence of his department should appear as an expression of unfriendliness toward the government of the United States which might irnpe~il the friendly relations between the two countries. ,X W'kEk'8 NEWS, KtAfttft of : Mlhor Imponaftdo Briefly .'"••• Ch*anlcle«l« ; Typhoid fever is raging at Hatkveaj Iowa. > : Colonel i Hewett, the last surviving Waterloo officer, is dead.

"A —A private dispatch recei-.-•.; here from- T apaa says that the loss c-i iit'ti by the recent earthquake, which s.'iook the Island <jf Hondo and other i-luces, is estimated to be very great. Over 2,000 persons were killed and about 18,090 houses were destroyed in the Province of Nagoya', on the Island of Hondo, the capital of which is Nagoya, a city of 130,000 inhabitans. In addition to the foregoing 5,000 houses were destroyed and 5,000 persons were killed by the earthquake at Gifu. The towns of Kano and Kasamatsu are also reported to have been destroyed tOjjfdier with fifty miles of railroad. It is presumed that the lire which started among the wrecked buildings at Nagoya, as already cabled, may have had a great deal to do with the great loss of life which is announced by the private message mentioned. As loss of life at Kano and at Kasamatsu is not mentioned, and as these towns are said to lie destroyed, it is estimated here that the tatol loss of life may eventually be shown to bo over 10,000. Additional advices confirm the news that there have bee n many wrecks about the Island of Honf o, as one of the consequences of the terr'ble disturbance. The severance of c communication with the death visited districts continue to prevent the ace irate details being gathered as to tho extent of the calamity. ACCIDENT ON THE SOO. The Editor of Tho Western Watchman KxpresHes His Views 011 the Matter. ST. Louis, Oct. 26.—The Rev. D. S. Phelan, editor of The Western Watchman, who keeps up a correspondence with Rome that places him in possession of facts that might be considered almost official, was questioned as to his views on recent rumors concerning the state of affairs now existing there and the talk that the pope might leave: '-A similar agitation," he said, "was at white heat when I was in Rome two years ago. It was all arranged for the pope to leave for some haven of refuge. At the last moment, however, the pope abandoned the scheme. "But the circumstances which led to a discussion of the abandonment of Rome two years ago have become more imperative with time. There is no telling at what instant the mob may storm the Vatican, assassinate the popo and desecrate the papal possessions." BIG STRIKE IN SIGHT. AUTHORITIES DEFIANT. From Chilians I>o Nat Intend to liccede the Attitude Assumed. NEW YORK, Nov. 8.—The Herald's dispatches from Santiago say the Chilian authorities show no disposition to recede from the defiant attitude which they assiimed in the answo.' *.o the communication from the United states in regard to an assault on members of the crew of the United States steamer Baltimore. Pedro Montt, the representative of the provisional government at Washington, sent a dispatch Friday urging the junta to adopt a conciliatory policy and to move with great caution, but his advice has apparently had no effect. While the American and other foreign residents fully realize the gravity of the situation and are fearful of other and perhaps graver complications, the Chilian public appear to have no conception of it. Beyond the meager facts which have been published in the local papers they are as a rule ignorant of what h;is occurred. WILL NOT RECALL EGAN. Two Persons Killed and Seven Injured at Thorson, Minn. GLEXWOOD, Minn., Oct. 23.—A rear end collision occurred at 9:80 p. m. at Thorson station, ei^lit miles east of here, between the regular west-bound freight and an extra following. The regular train, in charge of Conductor Copeland, wan switching at the time the accident occurred. The extra came on at full speed, completely telescoping the caboose, and killing five persons and seriously wounding seven others. The dead are: O. E. Holmes, traveling salesman for Seabury & Co., St. Paul; Fred Renn, Conrad Prince, Brasil Lyle, John Coffin. The last named four were threshers from Monticello, Minn. Mr. Holmes' body was very. badly torn to pieces. Fred Renn was probably roasted to death, as was found in the debris on top of the boiler. SHIPS COME TOGETHER. Fourteen Persons Killed by a Collision iu the English Channel. LONDON, Oct. 2Q— The bark Cherl- wood, from Atwerp for Valparaiso, was sunk in the channel off Eddystone by collision with the steamer Boston, from London for Cardiff, and four of the officers including the captain, six of the crew, the captain's wife and son, and a governess and servant in the captain's employ were drowned. The captain's daughter and six of the crew were rescued and landed at Falmouth. Business I'ortiou liurue* 1 . BLOOMFIELD, Ind., Oct. 31.—The busi- nesp portion of Newberry, ten miles wuih pf here, together with ten dwellings, wiw burned. The fire was the work o| »n uMj«i4iary and originated ia a Railroad Miners to the Number of 13,000 Will Quit Work. PITTSBURG, Oct. 26.—Delegates representing all the railroad coal miners in the Pittsburg district now on a strike, met in convention here and decided to continue the strike for 92 cents per ton. Three thousand railroad miners at Latrobe and Irwin, who mine coal for the Eastern trade, will be called out at once together with about 900 men working at the advance price in the Pittsburg district, making in all 13,000 railroad miners on a strike. The railroad operators have issued a circular stating that they would not pay more than 79 cents a ton for mining coal. The fight will now go on with much bitterness as both sides seem very determined. The miners say now they will not compromise and wiU hold out for 92 cents a ton. Harrison Said to Have Declared Ho Would Prefer to Abandon His Office. NEW YORK, Nov. 3.—A Washington special to The Mail and Express says that at a cabinet meeting President Harrison insisted on an immediate conclusion of the Chilian negotiations and laid before the cabinet Chili's demand for the recall of Egan as a condition precedent to a successful settlement of the difficulties. The president declared that before ho would submit to the humiliation of a minister's recall under the circumstances he would prefer to abandon his office. The result of the meeting was a cablegram instructing Minister Egan to insist on an immediate reply to last note and to inform Chili t'.iat delay would not be tolerated. The same dispatch says that a communication was received from Minister Egan indicating no abatement of the ill feeling tawards this government and reporting that his efforts to hasten an investigation have been fruitless, and he does not think the junta is disposed to give satisfaction. He has prepared to leave the country and thinks-his retirement may be essential for the preservation of the lives of the Americans. OPEN TO SETTLEMENT. Forty Thousand Acres of Land In Minnesota Subject to Entry. WASHINGTON, Oct. 31.—Over 40,000 acres of land are thrown open to settlement in Renville, Chippewa, Swift, Big Stone and Stevens counties, Minn. Following the decision of the interior department disallowing the claim of the Manitoba to indemnity lands on its main line for losses on the St. Vincent extension, the secretary of-' the interior has decided the conflicting claims of the Manitoba and the Hastings and Dakota railroads for about 76,000 acres of land in the western portion of Minnesota. Both companies will be dissatisfied, because there are about two-thirds of these lands thrown open for settlement. There were two classes of lands —those in the granted limits of the Hastings and Dakota and west of range 38, and those within the indemnity limits of both grants. The- former lands are adjiidged to the Hastings and Dakota because the line of the Manitoba was not definitely located west of range 88 until after the location of the Hastings and Dakota route. The other lauds within the indemnity limits of both roads are judged to Belong to Neither of ThesG'Rbac&k and are open for settlement. This conclusion is reached because, in the application made by both companies to select the indemnity lands, they did not designate actual losses in the granted limita, a procedure which the department determined was necessary. There are already some settlers on these lands whose titles have been hanging fire for many years, as both companies claim, them. There will probably be a rush for tlie lands which are within the indemnity limits of both companies,, as. these- are thrown open for settlement. The amount supposed to belong, to -the- Hastings and Dakota under this decision cannot bs estimated, but it is thought to be about two-thirds of the 76,000 acres. , oefemonied marked the' (tensec'ration of the 1 Rev. ttftae'Leii Meholsaitti S;'ff, D., to the bishopric of Milwaukee. The event took place in the Episcopal church of 8i. Marks on Locust street, to which parish the newly made bishop has ministered for many years. The doors were thrown open as early as 5 o'clock, and at 6, 7 and 8 o'clock there were celebrations of 'the holy communion, which were participated in by large numbers of communicants. The regular meeting prayer of the Episcopal church was also said at 9 o'clock. The hour fixed for the opening ceremonies of the day was 10:80, but many of those that participated in the 9:30 services held their places and before 10:80 o'clock the edifice wsw Filled to Overflowing, while hundreds of people were unable to gain admission. Promptly on the appointed time the procession moved from the parish building and entered the church. Over two hundred clergy from all parts of the country were present. The sermon was delivered by Bishop Grafton, of Fond du Lac, Wis. Tho oath was then administered to Bishop Nicholson, while the choir rendered the litany. The ceremonies concluded with tho choir and congregation joining in the singing of the hymn, "Praise to the Holiest." The procession of clergy and bishops then reformed and passed out giving tho signal for the dismissal of the congregation. The formal enthronement of the new bishop will take place in Milwaukee next month. -^ WILL STAND TOGETHER. Jerry Simpson Says the Alliance Men Will Have a Candidate for Speaker. WASHINGTON, Nov. 2.—If. Jerry Simpson is to be the oracle of the Alliance congressmen, the representatives of the third party in the next house of representatives will not go into Democratic caucus. Jerry Simpson, who has stopped here on his way South to continue his campaign, says: "The Alliance men in the next house will have their own candidate for speaker. We have finally decided upom this step beyond question, and if our Democratic candidates are figuring upon our participating in their caucuses they are reckoning withoiit hopes. We are going to keep house for ourselves." But, if what Jerry Simpson subsequently admits is correct, they will have it very small house to keep. He acknowledged that he does not know whether the Alliance congressmen strictly so- called in the next house of representatives will be twenty or fifty, and he says: "Of course we do not expect to hold the balance of power. We realize that the Democrats can. organize, whether we have our candidate for speaker or not, but, nevertheless, we will stand together."

QUEEN CITY, Tex., Oct. 26. —Lee Green, the young negro who murdered the family of Farmer Lowe, seven miles west of this city, has met with terrible punishment. He was arrested Sunday night and placed in jail at Linden. A crowd of between 500 and 1,000 went to the jail in the sheriff's absence and forced his wife to give up the keys to Green's cell. They then took him out and placed a chain around his neck and fastened him in a standing position to a tree. Whites and negroes then piled fagots high up around him and an old negro touched a match to it and his soul passed into eternity just fifty-six hours after those of his victims. Married a Colored Widow.

Louis, Oct. 31.—The grand jury in its final report to the criminal court returned two indictments in the case of the jail delivery on Oct. a.
