This will be accompanied by tne

anntinn of west-bound Snnta Fe train
Kn 91 was atODoed two miles west of
Daggett early tbifl morning by men ee
rti in the tender oi tne engine.
Bunnell was confronted by
iw s.Caliber revolvers and ordered

another mile and was then biougnr, to

Yaonlna. Or.. Nov. 21. Tbe British
shp Atalanta, onrryng a crew of 27 men
and loaded with 2,800 tons oi wneai,
from Tacoma for South "Africa, was
wrecked near Alsea bay yesterday
morning, and so far aa known there are
but three survivors.
The cause of the wreck of the Ata
lanta and tbe circumstances attending
It, produce a tale most harrowing. Tbe
mtumanaffflment of the vessel by its
officers is ascribed aa the cause of the
disaster, and tbe crippling of the Ya
qnina life-saving station by a penurious
policy of that department oi ice gov
ernment, adds horror to the situation.
The only three survivors aver tnat
some of their comrades on board tbe
(hip may yet be alive. While the
members of the life-saving crew are in
sight of the wreck, they are so fat
powerless to render assistance, owing
to the want ol apparatus, jneanwniie
couriers scoured tbe beach and conn
try adjacent for 10 miles, to procure
horses to bring up tne iiieooac ana
beach cart.
The Atalanta lay about a mile oH
shore, In a field of furious breakers.
Every swell passed over her works.
Each hour section of the vessel was
seen to fall away, and the timbers float
toward the shore. A strong and steady
south wester aided the current from tbe
same direction to bear the wreckage
rapidly to tbe beach. It waa this pow
er and agency, and this alone that en
abled the three sailors who survive to
escape tbe fate of their brethren. In
a lifeboat filled with water, partly dis
abled with wreckage, and without oar
to direct their craft, they were borne to
Washington, Nov. 21. The cabinet
oseion today wss devoted to a large
extent to consideration ol complaints
that have reaobed tbe war department,
alleging that a state of practical an
archy prevail in Porto Rico. These
complaints asserted that tbe lawless
element are committing depredation,
ol the gravest character, and the seri
ousness ol the situation Is Increased
by the fact that United States troop
likewise have been guilty ol groe mis
conduot. Secretary Alger ha cabled
General Brooke, inquiring as to the
accuracy of the complaints.
The most serious allegations are
against brigands and lawles element
in the smaller towns away from the
coast. It is said that taking advant
age of the unsettled state of the coun
try, due to the transfer of the govern
ment from Spain to the United States,
band of men have organized for rob
bery and rapine, burning bouse and
plantation and levying tribute opon
tbe people wherever possible. In ona
ease, it is aid,- tbey made a raid on a
small town of about 1,500 iniiaoiianu,

One man, who was clad In simply a
