BURNED TO A CRISP
Awful Fate of a Young Salem
THIS ONE WAS IN MISSISSIPPI
Details or the Wreck of the Steamer
W alrarapa Suicide of tbe Cleric
of Jollet, 111., Prison.
Salem, Or., Nov. 1. George Hansen,
a young engineer at McCrow & Steua
lofFs paeat market, was this morning
electrocuted in the cold storage room by
a live crectric wire. Hansen was in the
cold storage room at work, and by some
means came in contact with the wire,
and was dead before the discovery was
made. When relief went to him the
current was still running through the
body,-which was burned in places to a
crisp, his clothing being on fire. It is
not known exactly how the accident
He was about 25 years of age and has
no relatives in this state. ' He was a
member of the Knights of Pythias of
this city, and they will probably take
charge of the remains,
A. Successful Xrain Robbery,
Birmingham, Ala., Nov. 1. Passenger
train No. 3, of the Kansas City, Memphis
& Birmingham railroad, was held up at
1 o'clock this morning a few miles east of
New Albany, Miss., by three masked
men, and the express car looted of its
contents. Conductor W. B. Leonard got
into Birmingham at 6 o'clock this morn
ing. He said :
"My train pulled out of New Albany
about 1 o'clock this morning. Shortly
after getting under full headway I began
to slack up, and was soon at a standstill.
As I afterwards discovered, three masked
men had boarded the tender of the en
gine at New Albany, and covring En
gineer Campbell and Fireman' Alexander
with pistols, compelled them to stop at a
designated point in the woods, a few
miles east of New Albany. When the
train stopped I was in the baggage car,
Ik went to the side door and opened it,
only toe greeted with several pistol
shots from one of the robbers. I shoved
the door shut, but turning around, I saw
two robbers already in tbe baggage car
with pistols covering me. The engineer
and fireman were made to dismount,
and an unsuccessful attempt made to un
couple the engine. Express Messenger
Jeannette's car was forced open, the
robbers covering me with pistols all the
time, and we were forced to give up the
contents of the safe. Putting the booty
in a bag, the robbers backed off into the
woods with pistols still pointed at us,
and disappeared in the darkness. We
did not see their faces at any time."
The officers of the Southern Express
Company give it out that only a little
cheap iewelry and vouchers constituted
the robbers' booty. It is suspected, how
ever, the expresB company is lying low
on this subject. The general belief is
that the robbers were amateurs, although
they did things up in shape.
Death of tbe Cist.
Lividia. Nov. 1. The czar died at 3
o'clock this afternoon.
Immediately after the body of tbe czar
has been prepared it will be laid upon
an incline table preliminary to being
placed in the temporary coffin. The
priests will then enter tbe bedroom and
will chant a lequiem. This will be re
peated three times daily until the burial
takes place. All the members of the
imperial family will be present at the
ceremonies. It is expected the body
will be removed tomorrow to the, private
chapel, where special prayers for the t
pose of the emperov's soul will be
offered, and where once a day the litany
will be sung, in addition to chanting a
V requeim as previously stated.
It is understood tbe czarevitch will
V! immediately issue a proclamation de
claring himself czar, and all Russian of
ficials throughout the world will take
the oath of allegiance as soon as pos
Alexander III (Alexandrovitch), e
peror of all the Russians, who succeeded
to the throne on the murder of his
father by nihilist conspirators, March
13, 1881, was born March 10, 1845. For
Highest of all in Leavening Power.
some time after his elevation to tbe
throne be seldom appeared in public,
but lived in tbe closest retirement at
Gatschina, being in constant dread of
the machinations of the secret societies
of socialists. His coronation took place
at Moscow, May 27, 1883. He married
in 1866, Mary Feodorovna, formerly
Mary Sophia Fredericka Dagmar,
daughter of Christian IX, King of Den
mark, and sister of the Princess of Wales
and the King of Greece. Tbe principal
concern of tbe czar has been to put
down nihilism ; to develope tbe military
power of Rnisia ; to organize her Asiatic
and Caucasian provinces, and to keep a
steady eye upon Constinople. The czar
never forgave his cousin Alexander Jo
seph of Battenberg tor acting indepen
dently of Russia in the crisis of 18S5.
The czar struck the , prince's name off
the Russian army list and forced him to
sign his abdication. Prince Alexander
soon retired to his estates. In October,
1888, the czar, with his family, narrowly
escaped death by a railway accident on
the Transcaspian railway. Of late years
his life has been a little more tranquil,
but etill the ever recurring plots of the
nihilists and socialists have rendered
his life one of care and watchfulness.
The Wairarapa Disaster.
Auckland, New Zealand, Nov. 1.
Additional details regarding the loss of
the Wairarapa have been deceived from
passengers arriving here. The steamer
struck at midnight during heavy wea
ther and when a rough sea was running.
The passengers were aroused by the
shock and rushed in terroi upon deck,
where life belts were, served out and
preparations were made to lower the
boats. Several boats capsized while
being lowered. The crews then set to
work constructing rafts, and ran a line
ashore with great difficulty. With the
aid of a sort of breeches-buoy they suc
ceeded in rescuing a number of people.
Many pathetic and heartrending scenes
were witnessed, especially between bus
bands and wives and parents and chil
dren, but there was no panic. It was
with the greatest difficulty the boats
were launched, as heavy seas were con
tinually breaking over the .vessel, which
was soon partly submerged, thus inak
ing tbe rescue ot those on board more
difficult than ever, The life rafts were
cut adrift, and by means of them many
were saved. "Others clung to the i en pro
vised rafts until rescued from shore.
When the passengers rushed on deck,
many sought refuge on the bridge of the
steamship until the heavy seas swept a
number overboard and caused those un
able to find places in the boats or on the
rafts to escape to the rigging, where they
remained until daybreak. . There is no
doubt that many more passengers would
have been drowned had it not been for
the gallantry of two seamen, who swam
ashore with a line, by means of which a
stout rope, which was used later in the
work of rescue, was hauled ashore,
Nearly all the survivors reached shore
in tne scantiest ciotning. some re
mained on the rocks thirty hours, sub
sisting on oranges which washed ashore
from the wreck. When the disaster be
came known to the Maoris on land,
these natives launched small boats and
succeeded in rescuing a number of people
Assistance was finally obtained from
Port Fitzroy, and the survivors of the
Wairarapa were brought here. Eleven
pasEengers and twenty-three seaman
His Last Hours.
Lividia, Nov. 1. The following bul
letin was posted at 10 o'clock this morn'
ing: "The czar passed the night with.
out sleep, rne activity or nis heart is
diminishing rapidly. His majesty's
condition is very dangerous. His res pi
ration is very difficult." This bulletin
is by far tbe gravest yet issued, and the
general belief here is the death agony
has begun and tbe czar cannot last
through the day. It is understood his
majesty has not slept at all during ' tbe
night, and the difficulty be experiences
in breathing makes every movement a
Lapsed Into Unconsciousness.
Vienna, Nov. 1. A Yalta dispatch
says that at noon the action of the czar's
heart began to enfeeble rapidly. About
1:30- unconsciousness supervened, and
the action of .the heart became inter
mittentand scarcely preceptible until
its pulsation ceased altogether.
The Chronicle prints tbe news.
Latest U. S. Gov't Report
. His Last Public Message.
St. Petersburg, Nov.l. It is an
nounced that the last public message
issued by the czar was a telegram, to the
troops of the district of Moscow, thank
ing them for tbe congratulations sent
him on the occasion of the anniversary
of his escape from death in the railway
disaster at Borki.
Marriage May Be Postponed.
Washington, Nov. 1. From remarks
dropped at the Russian legation when
the minister was informed of the death
of the emperor it will cause a postpone
ment of the marriage of czarevitch and
Princess Alix one year.

vate dispatches received by the queen of
Denmark, mother of the czarina, the
