fl Rotable Example of Gool Goange
Commendable Action of the Crew of the Burned Ship Delaware
Coolness and Bravery Saved Many Lives.
New Yobk, July 9. The burning of
the steamship Delewaro off Barnegat
Inlet, Friday, furnished a striking con
trast to the story of horror, death and
cowardice connected with the going
down of La Burgogne. While the vessel
burned rapidly and fiercely in the open
eea, still through, the courage and
bravero of the officers and the splendid
discipline and devotion of the crew they
brought off all hands without the loss of
a single life, there being in all seventy
five paesengers, nine women and three
It was 11 :45 when the officers passed
from state room to state room, rousing
the passengers. In each case the officers
after knocking, said, "Get dressed and
come on deck as Boon aa possible. There
is a fire on board the ship. Do not be
alarmed, there is plenty of tinfie and no
danger. Boats will be waiting for you
1 as soon as you reach the deck."
Under these clear and calmly-delivered
directions the passengers came out
frightened, but orderly, and assembled
on deck, where some of the women
broke down. Captain Ingram and bis
officers walked up and down assuring
them there was no cause for alarm; that
boats were being prepared; that the
sea was calm and the land only a short
distance away. While the officers were
making the rounds of the state rooms
for the second time, Stewardess Hill
came up with an arm fall of life-preservers,
which sLe distributed among
the women. One of them half hysteric
ally dropped hers on deck. "Oh I can
never get it on," she wept. "I'll fix it
for you," said Miss Hill cheerily, and
having bundled up the trembling wo
man, she went on to the next.
"All women to the first boat I" ehout-
ed Captain Ingram.
With encouraging words the sailors
detailed for the duty passed women and
children along into the boat, but when
the boat was being lowered one young
woman remained on deck. "Get in
Madam," cried the captain. "There's
plenty of room." "I'll stay with my
husband, sir," she replied : "I'm not
afraid." She was Mrs. J. D. McClassen,
of Charleston, S. C, a bride of three
weeks, with ber husband. ' She was
lowered into the next boat.
Captain Ingram was the last to leave
the burning ship, and he did not go un -til
be had satisfied himself by the enum
eration of his passengers that no one
could have been left on board.
Not a person was lost ; not even one
McKinley Has Ordered Shatter to Ac
cept No Other Terms.
Washington, July 9. At 12 o'clock
tonight President McKinley wired Gen
eral Shatter at (Santiago to accept noth
ing from General Linares but uncon
ditional surrender. If the Spanish com
mander refuses this demand it is con
fidently believed that the American

Santiago up to this hour. The time of
truce Las passed and news of a bombard
ment is expected at the war department
at any time.

ing the Flag on Hawaii.

WASHINGTON, July;5. It was authoritatively
announced today that no peace overtures would be
made by the powers of Europe. For some time in
tervention on the part of the European governments
was feared, but the English, German, French and
other ambassadors and legations have openly denied
the validity of any such statements, and they are,
therefore considered groundless.
London reports received here today give color
ing to the rumors that Spain will sue for peace in
the near future.
Articles of Agreement to Be Signed
Next Monday A Purse of $20,000
a Side Put Up.
New York, July 9. A battle between
Pompadour Jim Uorbett and Kid Mc

JIflY SAVE AT THE
ItEAST TflHEE SHIPS

Admiral Sampson states that three of Cervera's warships
may be saved. The Cristobal Colon is considered in good
condition, and the Infanta Maria Teresa and Vizcaya may
be saved also.
Europeans Will Have Nothing to Say
Concerning American Possession
After the Courage We Have Shown
in the Present War.
London, July 9. -The great victory
of Admral Sampson's fleet has firmly
convinced the great powers of Europe
that the American navy is far greater in
actual force than the powers credit its
theoretical strength. Sneers at the
American navy and army have given
place to commanding respect. The
cowardice of the French crew in La
Bourgogne disaster makes France's situ
ation pitiable and humiliating.
After the attitude of the press and the
people in the present war there is no
fear of any great power trying to rob the
United States of the fruits of its victory.
The foreign powers may expect the con
cession of naval etations in the Philip
pines, but there will probably not be a
word of protest if even this is refused.

TO BE EXTENDED
It is Expected That the Road Will Be
Built from Coulee City to Chelan.
Kendrick, Idaho, July 9. The corps
of surveyors recently at work along the
Clearwater, laying out a route to the
Camas Prairie country, were taken off
last week and ordered to the Wateryille
country, where they will begin at once
surveying a route for the extension of
the Central Washington railroad from
Coulee City to Chelan, via Waterville.
It is said the work of building the ex
tension will begin soon. If possible, it
will be finished this fall. This will re
quire the building of about 100 miles of
road, which, it is thought, will eventu
ally be the main line of the Northern
Pacific railway to the coast, as it will
develop a country rich in agriculture
and mineral resources, which his com
paratively little waste land within its
borders that is adjacent to the route the
road would take.
