LONDON, Nov. 12.—Another furious southeasterly gale is sweeping over the British coasts and is causing an im mense amount of damage. From a number of points already the news has been telegraphed that ships are ashore and. that their crews ore in danger of drowsing or already drowned. Following so closely upon the many recent storms which kave spread death and destruction on the coasts of England, Ireland and Scotland, and which have done an immense amount of damage to the crops besides flooding whole districts and destroying railroad embankments, this latest storm is really more than the most sanguine of British farmers can pass through without despondency. To give an entire list of the wrecks reported would be a difficult and lengthy task. A dispatch from Hythe Kent just received, says that the French schooner Edirimihas foundered off that place, and that the vessel's captain, his wife and son were drowned in spite of the efforts of the life savers, who were enabled to take off the rest of the crew. uowen, »2 years old, home in Peorift, His.; George Richards, 26, home at Lincoln, Neb.; David Elmore, Otto Helbin, St. Louis.

Over a thousand anarchists or anarchist: syaipathisefs had crowded into the West Twelfth Street Turner hall to commemorate the day, Nov. 11, 1887, on which their fellow anarchists were hung. It was the' most decisive demonstration of the ki»d since the eventful evening of May 4, when scores of police went down in blood.

The crew of the band«i^e lifeboat station made every effort possiule to launch their boat, but without success. When the crew of the Bienvenue saw the futile efforts of the life savers they gave way to dis- pair, pitifully moaning for aid and imploring help from the crowds of people lining "the shore. The situation of the men in the rigging of the Bienvenue became more desperate at every moment. One by one, the numbed, weakened sailors dropped from the Bienvenue's rigging and were swallowed up by the angry waters surging around the doomed craft. At noon only five of the crew were left in the rigging. The Remainder Rescued. No braver struggle for life has been •witnessed on this coast than that which resulted in the rescue of the remaining members of the crew of the British ship Bienvemie. About 4:30 in the afternoon, the Bienvemie began to break up, but the masts, with the unfortunates clinging in the rigging, still held together. The storm abated somewhat as darkness grew, and another attempt was made to launch the Sandgate lifeboat, fccores of volunteers assisted in the launching and amid the shouts from thousands that must have sent a hopeful echo across the stretch of foam to the weary hearts and numbed limbs on the wre'-k, the lifeboat started. It Beemed doubtful for a while whether the task could be accomplished, but at length, after a tremendous struggle, the brave life savers brought their boat up to the rigging of the Bienvenue and * _ J.1 . - A. -. „.„« n * v. nrt ' Plm center of this city. It originated in the Standard Bottling works and soon spread to surrounding blocks on Frankfort street between Bank and Water streets. The flames spread rapidly and attacked the large printing establishment of Short & Forman. A five-story block to the east of the structure where the fire began was reached by the flames. It was filled with a number of small manufacturing establishments file, to the express car. One of the robbers rapped on the door at the side and ordered Messenger Murphy to open it. This the latter refused to do. Then a bomb was thrown through the window and the demand WETS renewed. Still- the plucky messenger refused to open the door. Another bomb was .thrown, tins time square at the door. A Terrible Explosion Followed, the force of which can be imagined; when it is known that the heavy timber and the grease and oil added fresh fuel to the blaze. It looked as though the entire corner was doomed, and the guests in the Johnson House and Weddell "House began to move out with their effects. By good work the firemen succeeded in keeping the fire within its original bounds, and it was extinguished after .three blocks had been gutted. When the fire first began the men of Engine Company No. 1, were ordered into the-burning building. Without any warning an upper story suddenly fell'in-and Captain John Grady was cut off from his comrades and burned to death before their eyes. Fireman Ward, who was with him, was rescued with a broken leg. Fireman Howley was crushed internally by falling walls. The total loss will amount to $2fiO,000. Five rescued every one that remained. The poor fellows were almost unable to help themselves. They had clung mechanically for hi.urs in their perilous position ana they were utterly exhausted. A Bark's Crew Snved. Ten minutes after the Sandgate crew had succeed-sd in saving the crew, the Dover lifeboat arrived. The bark T. P. Pfluger from San Francisco for Bremea, •was wrecked at Hastings. Her crew of seventeen and five passengers remained in the riggiug five hours, while the life savers sent rocket after rocket, with line attached, to the rescue. Several rockets fell short, but at length a line reached the vessel. Thousands were assembled on shore, their sympathies more aroused by seeing a woman's form among the shipwrecked. A tremendous cheer want up when it was seen that the line was fastened. The crew behaved nobly, and the woman was the first to be sent on the perilous journey to safety. Nearly half dead, she was hauled ashore. Then followed two boys, and after them the men, the captain coming last. The Dungeness lifeboat in making an effort to reach a vessel, was overturned, and five of the crew were drowned. The men from the stranded ships lost their lives in trying to swim to the shore. The schooner John P.oberts, of Modoc, Wales, went ashore during the afternoon near Brighton. Rockets failed to carry lines to th* vessel. The crew were in the rigging and the vessel eeeuied about to break up. The shipwrecked mariners leaped into th« eea, and battled their way to the shore with the assistance of volunteers. WILL REACH 200. A FAMILY CREMATED. Blackened Bodies Found in tue Kuius of a Tenement House. COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 14.—One of the most disastrous fires in years, from the fact that an entire family were consumed, occurred here early in the morning in a row of tenement house on North High street. The exact origin of the fire remains a mystery, but on the first alarm flames were seen shooting from the roof, licking up everything within grasp. The firemen endeavored to reach the rooms, but the dense smoke made it useless. One of the captains did get partially inside the building, but was pulled out again nearly suffocated. Two hours were consumed in gaining control of the flames and long ere that every person was supposed to have escaped. Such, however, was not the case. It was nearly 4 o'clock p. m. running along the side of the car as the foundation upon which it is built, was cut completely in two. A large hole was made in the door, and before the echoes of the explosion had died away, and amid the smoke and dust, one of the robbers sprang 'into the aperture and covered the messenger and his 'assistant with revolvers. Both men had been thrown down by the terrible concussion. Even then it was some time before Murphy would, consent to- surrender the keys to the safes. Two of the three safes on the train were thrown oiit of the door and dragged off a short distance, when, after a delay of. about half an hour, the train was allowed to proceed to this city. The express car on reaching Milwaukee was unloaded and taken to the/ shop= for repairs. Among the goods taken out, a bale of cloaks were fairly blown into ribbons, having the appearance of being put through a threshing machine. A number of hats, known among ladies as "shapes," were torn and riddled 'into a shapeless .mass. Messenger Murphy's clothing was stripped into threads, and it is a miracle how he escaped with bis life. Several holes in his hat and. coat sleeves were probably made by stones in the dynamite bombs, as there are a large number of them sticking in the sides of the car, where they had penetrated half . way through the Robert N. West, John Sagg and Ferdinand M^ck, three murderers, each serving a life term in, .the penitentiary at Waupum, made their escape Wednesday afternoon through a tunnel, which they had dug under the walls of the prison. Mrs. James Kines, a widow, and her three children were murdered in their house in Fauquier county, Va., and the house was fired to conceal the crime. The bodies were badly burned before the fire could be extinguished by neighbors. Allen G. Thin-man was 73 last Saturday.

James Charleston, a mechanic, fell nineteen stories from the top of the Masonic Temple in Chicago and was smashed all out of shape. Contractor Whelan, who built the new court house at Quebec, claims that he paid $115,000 to officials of the Province of Ontario and city of Quebec in order to obtain the contract.

Weissman, sartor of the New York Baker, a German trades paper. Inspector of Police Hubbard and a squad of officers in citizens clothes were- seen to quietly approach the stage. They Ordered an American Flag placed among the flaming crimson banners, which were conspicuos everywhere. Instantly there was a profound sensation in the motley audience, and the police were hissed from all parts of the hall. Mrs. Lucy Parsons, who occupied a chair against the rear wall, shrieked out: "Hang the murderers of myhusbandl" In a second pandemonium reigned, hundreds of excited men pushing forward, cursing the officers, and seemingly only wanting a leader to precipitate a frightful .spectacle of carnage. Nevertheless Inspector Hubbard unflinchingly ordered a suspension of the meeting until hia commands were obeyed. Through the din the half hundred police flould be seen placing their hands on their clubs and revolvers preparatory for a fight Which Seemed Inevitable. It was fully ten minutes before order was restored. The flag meanwhile had been reluctantly hoisted to a place over the stage, a proceeding only accomplished when the officers were found ready for action. The meeting had been taken completely by surprise, else a more tragic result might have followed. The first the crowd knew of the police being present was when Inspector Hubbard came through a side door, having come up by a private entrance. When he ordered the hoisting of the American flag, the tension was something almost unprecedented. Hiss after hiss and when a little girl living in the neighborhood, with childish curiosity ran through the ruins, which led to the discovery of Fiye Blackened Bodle*, burned to a. crisp and beyond recognition. The entire family of Charles Bethers was destroyed while sleeping in a little 8x12 room in the second story. They were Charles Bethers, aged 80 years; Elizabeth, his wife, aged !28; Carrie, aged «; Myrtie, aged 6, and James, aged 3. The clock on the mantle had stopper at 8:35 a. m., indicating the hour of the fire. In fighting the flames, two of the pipemen stood in a window, sending a stream into this room without discovering the dying occupants, who were unconscious and unable to utter a cry. The fire is supposed to be of incendiary origin, as two suspicious characters were seen leaving the as the damage was started. A NOTED MAN GONE. heavy boards at the side of the car. The report that he had been shot at;by the robbers is probably without foundation, as the only reports heard, aside from the two explosions, were those of the,pistol shots fired in the air before the assault was made.

Captain Hattie, Smith, of the Clinton (la.) Salvation Army corps, was shot and killed at Omaha by Cadet Clara Beadle, of the local Army. The murderess then killed herself. yell after yell frantically roso until the whole audience seemed like a thousand demons instead of human beings. . The leaders of the meeting say that the gathering was only to show regard and reverence for the men who perished while laboring for the benefit of humanity. ' ONCE MORE THE RED MAN. Loss of I-if»- by the Andaman Island* Cyclone Greater Than First Reported. LONDON, Nov. 10.— Further particulars received here from Calcutta show that the cyclone which swept over the Andaman islands, a British convict settlement, in the Bay of Bengal, on Monday last caused a very much larger loss of life than was at first reported, and that the damage done was far in excess of the amount of the first report. In addition to the drowning of nearly all of the crew of the Enterprise, the government steamer engaged in conveying the convicts to and from the settlement, by which seventy-eight out of eigjjty-tbree men lost their lives, it is now officially announced that the total loss of life is nearly 200, and that about JdO people in addition were severely wounded. _ __ Bonn Piatt PMSOS Away at His Home in Logan County, Ohio.

They were picked up by a freight train and carried toward Chicago until a passenger train was met, to which they were transferred and brought to this eityi The \ only plunder the robbers secured •was contained in what is known as the messenger's private safe, of which he carried the key. In this he deposits money packages picked up at stations along the road and at times has a few with him when he leaves Chicago. There are often times when' this safe comes through to Milwaukee empty, as the midnight train only stops three times between the two cities. Offered a Big Reward. CHICAGO, Nov.

A Band of Cheyenne Indians Leave Tlielv Aceocy for Pino Ridge. PIERRE, S. D., Nov. 14.—A remnant of Big Foot's band of Indians under Red Cloud, numbering some sixty families, is in open revolt against the authority of the agant »t Cheyenne agency. The particulars as learned from Indian Allotting Agent McKean, are: This band of Indians has been living on the south side of the Cheyenne river on ceded lands, as ao Indian can live off from a reservation without taking land in severalty and declaring his intention •of becoming a citizen. McKean went up to allot their Indian land. When he got there he found that they had a few days before sold off all their stock, which amounted to considerable, packed up their effects and left only a trace of their foraaer camp. He notified the agent, who dispatched half a dozen Indian police after the band to bring them back to the Che3'enne ngency, as they were under the agent of that agency. They overtook the band near the edge of the Pine Ridge agency and endeavored to persuade them to return. All but one Indian refused, and stated that they were going on to Pine Ridge agency to reside there in the future. The Indian policemen returned to the agent, and when McKean left he had Many new residences are being bnilfc fctCreston. Bhelby cotuaty voted bonds fot a aett ;S cotit t nouse.
