a cable dispatch from San Salvador.
which say a the details of the terribl
earthquake shot k, of which I cabled 70a
Wednesday, pre res it to have been more
disastrous than supposed. In this city
about forty persons were killed and six
teen more or less seriously injured
There is no telliDg 'o what extent the
mortality list will reach, but judging
irom .tne feanul results in San Halvadar,
tlie number ot killed throughout the
country will be somewhere in the hun
dreds. While the alarming reverbera
tions were going on it was an utter im
possibility lor any one to keep a footing
From all the houses tho unfortunate
dwellers issued on all fours amid clouds
of dust, wbie showers of tiles and plaster
kept tailing ail about them. The air
was filled with agonizing shrieks. Mer
chants lost heavily through the destruc
tion of the fragile goods. The panic has
now pretty nearly subsided, although
iamilies are sleeping in tents in their
houses or puolwks, or streets. Earth
quakes, by turns feeble and violent, con
tinue at irregular times. Everybody
expect 8 a climax to come on September
21, on account of the equinox, as ex
penence shows that exerts great influence
on the local earthquakes. It is not un
likely this city will be made a total wreck.
The government has sent 300 men to
deepen the outlet to Lake Hopongo in
order to diminish the amount of water in
it, and reduce the violent shocks. Some
workmen engaged In digging the outlet
were carried away by a wild torrent of
warm, ill smelling water and drowned
The details of the ruins of towns in the
axis ot the earthquake are very meager.
Of 320 house at Comasngua, only eight
remain standing. The iocs of life there
is great. News came bv telegram yester
day that the waters of the lake were
growing warmer and had fallen three
feet up to 9 A M , when thev rose again,
reaching-by C p. m, seven feet above the
normal level. Nobody slept last night,
as all were expecting another violent
shock. Fortunately nothing nnnsuaL
Athens, Sept. 11 A collision has
taken placer off . Cape Colon Da, the most
Southern point oi Attica, Greece, between
the Italian steamship Taromina, ot the
Italian Messageriea Company, and the
Greek steamship Thesaalia. The Taro
mina sank soon after the accident, drown-'
iog ber captain, several of her crew and
large number of cabin passengers.
The second officer of the Taromina and
nuinbe. of passengers standing on the
bridge at the time the collision occored
were saved by boats of the Tbessalia,
The damage done tho Taromina by the
collision was so great that she sank a tew
minutes atter being struck by the Greek
steamship. Most of the Taromintt's pas
sengers were in their berths at the tim
the vessels collided, and the latest - esti
nation is that 100 persons were drowned
The Tbessalia was badly damaeed for
ward, but by keeping her pnmps going
succeeaea in reaching ftialeron.
Rome, Sept. 11. In an interview with
correspondent of tbe Tribune, CaptaiD
Pi nin?, of tbe steamer Tbeasads. said:
Tiie Taromina's captain must have been
mistaken in bis course. I did evervtbins
possible, but could not avoid running
nto tbe Taromina." The crew otbe
hessalia gave a statement to the effect
hat the pnmps were not started until
three hours after tle collision, but tbey
agree that tbe Taromina's people bad not
a chance, as she sank immediately. Tbe
General Navigation Company's report
says tbe Tbessalia cume on full steam and
ignored tbe Taromina's repeated whist
ling. A terrible scene of panic followed
the collision. Many passengers were
pitched in tbe hold through tbe open
hatches by the shock. Some leaped
aboard tbe Tbessalia, which resumed ber
course five minntes afterward, heedless
of tbe signals of distress.
An Election to be Held In Chill Ikext

Colonel Stepan. who with twenty-five
cavalrymen was supposed to bavegoneto
tbe Argentine Repuolic to act as guerril

His cruelty to the anti Balmacedists who
fell into bis power has aroused intense
feeling against him. He will be very
summarily dealt with. Tbe feeling
against the government of tbe United
States and its people is calming down
bere. Official recognition of tbe junta's
government by the United States bas
been made by both Minister Egan. and
Admiral Brown. The United States flag
ship Sanfrancisco yesterday saluted the
Chilian flag by the discharge of twenty

manner by the shore battery.
Fight to ihe Death.
Purcell, I. T, Sept. 11. A fierce
flight occurred near bere yesterday, in
wbicb a United States marshal and party
captured two noted desperate outlaws,
alter mortally wounding them. A poase
in charge of Deputies Swayne, Cook and
Eikins, have been on the trail of William
Carley and Ross Riley several days.
Tbey cornered them t. -day in an nnoccc
pied bnt, and demanded their surrender.
Tbe outlaws responded with a volley from
tbeir revolvers. Tbe posse returned tbe
fire. A fasilade was kept up for some
time, tbe outlaws finally surrendering.
Tbey bad both been shot, it is thought
fatally. None of tbe posse were injured.
Carley is a horse thief, who escaped from

Attempt to Wreck a Train. .
Philadelphia, Sept. 11. Last eve
ning a diabolical attempt was made to
wreck a Lehigh Valley train at
Kennedy station, near Pbillipsburg. A
quantity of dynamite was placed on tbe

it tbe explosion was forcible enough to
throw tbe engine off tbe track. No one
was hurt. No cine to tbe perpetrators.

PERILS OF THE RANGE.
Fierce Encounter Between a
Sheepman and Bear.
HIS DOG A VALUABLE ALLY
An Example of Sootoh Grit that Would
Assault Even the Gates of Eades
Under Certain Circumstances,
Which Are Earned.
i he sheep business in Eastern Uregon is
subject to many yicissitudes, not the least
of which and of freaaent occurrence, is
when tbe owner of flocks of sheep mast
take his life in his own hands in caring for
and protecting bis bands from the wild
animals that infest the mountains in the
Cascade range. Durintz the fall months
the bands of sheep are driven into the fast
nesses of the Cascades, where green grass is
abundant, when fted on the lower altitudes
is eaten out. Every season sheepmen
drive tbeir flocks to these ranges at great
expense and labor, and on the nutritious
grasses the sheep thrive and prosper.
Mr. Michael King, for several years past
has followed this plan, and during this
time has had several conflicts with wild
animals. On various occasions he has
killed bear, panthers and coyotes, wbicb
were enemies ot his flocks; bnt the most
desperate fight he "has yet had with moun
tain animals was on September 1st. On
that date, about dusk, he heard the bleat
ing of a lmb. and, with bare feet, crawled
out to ascertain the cause. He soon heard
an ominous growl, which be conld just dis
tingnish in the growing darkness proceeded
rom a bear. Patting his rifle in rest he
fired two shots at brnin and started back to
camp to pnt on bis shoes and reload
Walking slowly onward, parting the bushes
as he passed, his left hand was suddenly
seized by a bear, and was only released
when his faithful dog attacked him in the
rear. Jumping back, and at the same time
dealing the animal a terrible blow in tbe
nose, he managed to stnn the bear for a
moment, but his paw scraped his left thigh,
leaving a wound an inch and a half deep.
This was too much for our Scotchman, and,
procuring a supply of cartridges from
his camp, he followed the bear, in
his bleeding and seriously wounded
condition until he fell on the ground hors
du combat. As he expressed himself in his
broad Gaelic dialect, no bear was ever made
that conld conquer a Scotchman. Mr. King
skinned the animal, and now has the hide
as a trophy. He particularly warned us
not to give too much laudation to this act
of his; but from the complexion and stam
ina of the man we know that if it was nec.
essary to charge on Hades and take Satan
prisoner Scotchmen would do it, especially
so if Queen ictoria would give the order.
Honest, brave and industrious, these men
have impressed their acts on the history of
the world, and in whatever country tbey
reside they will always be found supporters
of the laws and institutions of the country,
From the wounds inflicted by tbe bear mor
tification began on Mr. King, and it was
only by, the akilfnll surgery of Dr. Snther
land of this city, be is able to be around.
A Sad Case.
Dofuk, Orn Sept. 12, 1891.
A month or more since Mr. E. S. Al
baugh and Mr. D. R. Carmicbael came
to Dufur, the latter to work at his trade
as jeweler, and tbe former to re
main with bis fnend until sucb time
as be .was able to go to work. Both
came from Fresno, Calif. Mr. Albaugh
was a model physically, being about 5
feet, 10 inches in height, and weighing
195 ponnds. He claimed to be but
slightly ill, and was around among our
citizens making friends wherever he
made acquaintances. He seemed to de
cline rapidly, though still able to be
among us, and unwilling to grant there
was anything serious tbe matter. To
tbe inquiry as to why be did not have
medical attendance he reluctantly said
be would "if he did not get better soon,
Some days ago he went to tbe Central
House, kept by Mr. E. D. Aohna, and,
though he still staid on his feet most of
the time, his friends became alarmed as
to his condition, as Mr. Bobna said be
ate no faod whatever. Dr. Vanderpool
was called, who pronounced it a case of
typhoid fever in its worst iorm. Inward
bleeding had set in and the patient was,
he thought, beyond tbe reach of medi
cine. Mr. ttohna and wile, Mr. Car
micbael and others did everything possi
ble to be done for the suffering man and
bad his nearest relations been present he
con d not have been better provided for.
He was conscious to the last, and five
minntes before death be insisted upon
being placed in a rocking chair, as "tbe
bed hart him." This was done and he
quietly passed away.
Though only a short time among os,
the citizens of Dufur appreciate the no
ble character of tbe man, as displayed
during his illness, and the funeral will
be largely attended by those who knew
him but a short time, but knew him only
as a perfect gebtleman in health and an
uncomplaining sufferer in sickness. The
funeral will take place from tbe U. B.
church, and Rev. Ira Overtnrf, of Mist,
Nebalem valley, will officiate at tbe bur
Tbe deceased waa about 27 years ot
age, and has relatives and friends in
Fresno and in San Luis Obispo. ' A tele
gram was sent to a sister in the latter
place by Mr. Carmicbael, who stayed
with his friend as a brother. He will be
buried at tbe Odd Fellows' cemetery at
this place. M.J. A.

Saturday, September 12, 1891:
A few showers have occurred. The tem

atmosphere. In the interior counties on
the higher elevations frosts occurred.
The showers did no damage. Threshing
is in progress in some sections, and in some
counties it is nearly done. Id Wasco and
in parts of Sherman counties the wheat is
more shrunken than in the other counties. ;
Yields of forty bushels and npwards are 1
frequent in Morrow, Umatilla and Union
counties; in tbe latter county, in Baker,
Wallowa and interior counties harvesting
and threshing is well along. Reports indi

business bouses in the northwest. When
any town is niggardly about furnishing
proper appliances for fighting fire, it is
very unwise, to say tbe least.
Roseburg Plaindeakr- One of The
Dalles papers said on Tuesday, just previ
ous to the big fire: "The water has been of
so little force during the past two days
that it would not turn our Potter press or
eyen our feerless jobber. Uf ail processes
of lessoning, tbe logic of events ib the most
indisputable, and what we have told our
citizens for the past four years is being
proved true every day. 1 be only way to
procure a good water supply for The Dalles
is by the pumping system, and that is be
coming more evident as time advances.'
The Dalles didn't pump and a large part of
the city is now in ashes. A good strong
head of water and plenty of it is what
every town should have if it expects to es
La Oiande Gazette: A few years ago.
when The Dalles had about one-fourth of
its present population, the town was pro
vided with a water supply by a private
company trom what is known as Mill creek.
At the time this systeir. was constructed,
ample water was afforded for the limited
needs of the town. But The Dalles con
tinued to grow and expand in commercial
importance, end a better supply of water
was needed, in the meantime two factions
sprang into existence, and tbe spirit of an
tagonism thus engendered worked the us
ual amount of injury to all matters of pub
lie importance. When, the water supply
proDiem came up the tautiomsts were on
deck in full force. It was finally agreed,
however, that the wntef system should be
owned aud operated by tbe city. Two
plans presented themselves . One of pump
ing water Irom the. exnaanti6ss stores of the
Columbia river, the other to buy out and
enlarge the eld system. . Tbe latter plan
nnally prevailed, and tbe old company, in'
eluding a number of capitalists of Portland,
receiyed $oa,UUU tor tne plant. J he main
cause of the recent disastrous conflagration
at Ihe Dalles, resulting in the loss of a
million dollars worth of property and two
human liyes, was due to the lack of a suffi
cient water supply. The history of tbe
water question in Tbe Dalles is in so many
respects similar to that of La Grande, that
it should be presented tor tbe carelul and
candid consideration of every resident.
The Dalles water system is now finished,
with the exception of lining the reservoir,
for which sealed bids were recently adver
tised. But at the critical moment tbe
water supply was not sufficient to check
the course of the fire, and the people who
have been wheedled about and through the
phantom of "vested rights and the machi
nations of private interests, have been
compelled to pay more than an adequate
water system wonld cost, could do nothing
but watch their property go up in smoke.
Not only this loss of property, bnt the sac
rifice of two human lives, is tbe result of
subordination of publio interests to private
greed and personal jealousies. This seems
like a hard recital of tacts, but it is in the

Last week Chief Mnnger, of the fire de

To Geo. Hunger, Esq., Chief Engineer D.FJ).
Dear Sir In reply to yours of the 8th

Mr. Monger inquired at the Union Pa
cific office regarding the freight for sending

his friends until adversity overtakes him,
and then a fnend in ned is a friend in

marred by any unpleasant feature or the

that the parade haa, in addition to several

see that no horses are left alone, and to call
attention of owners, etc., to exercise a little
care with their animals, particularly if they

that the murderer asked him into a room to

Sunday Mercury: There is good reason
to believe that The Dalles conflagration
will result in the erection of a number of
fine business blocks and many elegant lesi
denes. Tbe losses, of course, are heavy,
and many homeless people, too poor now to
baud or pay exorbitant rent, will saner.
Bat the people of that littln city are noted
for aggressive energy and brave persever
ance, and tbey will make the moat of their
present unfortnnate condition. The Dalles
will be a muon better inland city when re
built. W. W. Statesman: Up to noon to-day
$600 bad been collected by the committees
appointed to raise tbe subscriptions lor tne
sufferers at the recent fire at The Dalles.
While oar citizens with their usual liber
ality cheerfully subscribed there was a gen
eral expression that tbe money should have
been appropriated by the city council di
rect. A few gentlemen who bad already
sent sums of money to The Dalles yet sub
scribed willingly again: In fact tbe major

few whom no one dare approach for fear of
an insult or lots of arguing and jaw. Bat

There were many heroes who worked on
the day of the fire whose deeds will never,
perhaps become generally known. Bat .
among them wbicb at this moment occurs
to us are the expressmen of our city. In
the great emergency they spared neither
themselves nor their horses. They hrd no
time to receive compensation in their efforts -to
hurry goods and valuables from the on
coming clutch of the fire-demon. We are
authentically told of one expressman who
refused a proffered $20 gold piece, giving
preference to a house nearer the names,
with no compensation. Another worked -
for others so faithfully that his own goods
were in flames before he waa aware of it,
saving only a portion of it. It is such in
stances ss this that stamps human selfish
ness a fable and-makes all tbe world akin.

Miller having, by dne course of law, es

be blaimed for asserting his rights. But
undoubtedly there .is a radical wrong,
somewhere. It is tbe duty of newspapers
to protect everjono in his rights, and es
pecially in tbis country where we are In
