TALE OF SPANISH CRUELTY.
Deported Prisoners In Transit Are Bru
New York, Sept. 15. The Press
says: Two passengers who reached
this port on the steamship Scandia tell
tales of Spanish cruelty to prisoners.
Their names are Juan Vivo and Albert
; Vivo says that he and 125 others
were deported in December, 1896, from
Havana as political prisoners by order
of General Weyler. They were to be
confined on the Chafarinas islands and
were shipped on a steamer for Cadiz,
On the voyage Vivo declares the treat
ment they received was brutal in the
extreme. They Were huddled together
like animals in the lower hold of the
steamer, and were heavily manaoled.
Scarcely any food, and that not fit for
human beings to eat, was given them,
and only two pails of water a day were
allowed for the 125 prisoners. Their
thirst in the hot and reeking hold was
torture. One of them objected to such
starvation and was beaten so severely
by the guards that he died the next day
and his body was immediately thrown
Vivo was pardoned on the last birth
day of the king of Spain and was re
leased on August 2. He was sent to
Malaga and from there made his way to
Gibraltar, where generous merchants
bought him passage to this city.
, Lopez was a suspect in Cuba, and in
order to save himself from being thrown
into prison he evaded the vigilance of
the Spanish officers, went to Europe and
reached Gibraltar, whenoe he took
passage for New York. He corroborates
Vivo's tales of Spanish cruelty.
HAWAII'S PART DONE.
Annexation Treaty Probably Ratified
New York, Sept. 15. A speoial'td
the Herald from Washington says: The
senate of the national legislature of the
republio of Hawaii has by this time
ratified the treaty of annexation of the
Hawaiian islands to the United StateB.
This assertion was made to your corre
spondent by Mr. Lorin M. Thurston,
charge d'affaires to the United States.
Mr. Thurston said that the senate of
the Hawaiian legislature had. been
called to assemble on September 8, and
that it is unanimous for annexation.
He has no doubt that it has ratified the
convention without a dissenting vote.
Both the senate and house of the"
Hawaiian legislature are pledged to an
nexation, according to Mr. Thurston
Just before the adjournment of the two
-houses last year, a joint resolution was
adopted declaring it to be the sense of
the legislature that the interests of Ha
waii demanded , her annexation to the
United States., This resolution was
adopted, unanimously. As the com
plexion of the senate and house has not
changed since the adoption of the reso
lution, Mr. Thurston has no doubt that,
so far as Hawaii is conoerned, all the
steps possible have been taken.
- Tt i. hpliAVAd in administration nir.
cles that the effect of the ratification of
the treaty by; the Hawaiian senate
will be to influence some of the mem
bers of the United States, senate now
in the doubtful column to vote for the
convention next session. All that is
now necessary is the approval of that
body, and it is not believed that many
members will be willing to shoulder
the responsibility of defeating annexa
tion and ' thus throw Hawaii into the
hands of Japan. '
The authorities would naturally be
pleased to have the controversy pend
ing between Hawaii and Japan settled,
because such settlement would tend to
remove any objection which might be
entertained by senators to bring into
the United States a nation which has
diplomatic differences with any ooun
try. It is their opinion, however, that
the 'matter will not be adjudicated
until after annexation is accomplished.
New York Wants the Grant Relics.
New York, Sept. 18. A proposition
has been made to obtain from the fed
eral government the collection of Grant
relics presented to the National mu
seum by Mrs. Grant, and deposit them
in the large room in the northeast cor
ner of the mausoleum. Architect John
H. Duncan' intended the room for
Grant relics, but everything which
would appeal to visitors as having been
owned by the general at some time in
his career is in the National - museum
Before Genearl Porter sailed for
France Mr. Duncan discussed with him
the possibility of the government relin
quishing the mementos, but nothing
has been done. ':'''.'
Mr. Duncan said:
"It was ordered to hold a meeting
recently, but there are not enough
members in town to hold it. Of course
the work is practically completed. It
would be a good thing to have the
mementos as Riverside, but I know of
nothing at this time to warrant the
hope that they will be brought here."

Seven Cases of Yellow Jack
in New Orleans.
TWO CONSIDERED SERIOUS
Several Other Suspicions Cases Reported
Authorities Take Prompt Steps to
Isolate the Sufferers.
New Orleans, Sept. 14. Shortly be
fore noon today, the board of health
officially declared six- of the suspicious
cases of fever on St. Claude street to
"be yellow fever. : Two hours' subse
quently, the board announced another
pronounced case of yellow fever atMiro
and Esplanade streets, in the lower
part of the city, a mile or more away
from the infected square. ' t
The announcement of the six cases of
yel low fever : was not .unexpected, al
though it was hoped from the delay on
the part of the experts that these cases
were simply of bilious malaria. No
general alarm was felt here, although
the news rapidly spread through the
city. The authorities do not believe
that the situation is materially worse
than it was four or five days ago, and
they are still confident of their ability,
with modern sanitary appliances, suc
cessfully to quarantine the infected dis
tricts. The official bulletin of the board of
experts, declaring the St. Claude-street
cases to be yellow fever, was received
by President Oliphant soon after 11
o'olock. Dr. Oliphant immediately
sent for members of the press and gave
out the report, which was signed - by
Drs. Lemon ioe, Touatre, Bickham,
Pettit and Parham, of the board of ex
perts, and Dr. Devron, the attending
physician. The report was as follows:
"We, the undersigned physicians,
whu, from time .to time, have exam
ined the 12 cases of fever on St. Claude
street, find six to be yellow fever, four
of whom are convalescent. There are
no other cases. "
Of the 12 original cases, all of which
had their origin from a case that had
come from Ocean Springs, the six,
other than those reported today as yel
low fever, were announced this after
noon to be practically well, 'up and
walking about their homes. Of the six
pronounced yellow fever, four are con
valescent, and two were declared to be
critically ill, one of these having suf
fered a relapse since yesterday.
Among the suspicious cases reported
yesterday was that of a boy named
Roy', living at Miro' and Esplanade
streets. Three doctors were sent to
make a careful observation of the case.
This afternoon, ! they pronounced it to
be unquestionably yellow fever, and as
having apparently had its origin in
Scranton, Miss., or in the vicinity of
that town. -' ? . ' '
As soon as the report was received,
the board of health took charge Of the
house, quarantined the inmates, placed
guards so that no one might come in
close proximity to the premises, and
set to work to thoroughly disinfect the
neighborhood. A brother of the pa
tient, who had left the premises some
time before the official announcement,
was given a permit to return, but or
ders Were issued under no circum
stances to let him or any member of
the household again leave the premises.
A Georgia Desperado lias His Revenge
After Three Years of Waiting.
Macon. Ga.. Sept. 14. A special to
the Telegrapli from Valdbs, Ga., says:
The story of killing Sam Parker, a
well-known citizen of Ceoil, at Hahyra,
this morning, by Shelton Dampier,
shows it to have' been one of the black
est crimes that has ever stained the
criminal annals of this country. Par
ker was on His way to. church, and had
stopped on the street to talk to some
gentlemen, Dampier being in ' the
crowd. After a few minutes' conver
sation, the crowd began to break up,
and Parker, Dampier ; and the town
marshal were left alone. ; Dampier drew
his pistol at this juncture, and, put
ting it against the bosom of Parker,
fired one shot. Theball passed through
Parker s heart, an he sank to the
ground without a word, dying instant
ly. . Turning to the marshal, Dampier
waved his pistol in his face and defied
him, threatening to kill him if he
moved. The desperado then turned
and made his escape. Every effort
will be made to capture him.
The cause cf the tragedy is said to
date back three years, when Dampier
was prosecuted for stealing some meat
from Parker. Dampier?, was convicted
and sent to the chain gang. He swore
vengeance at the time, declaring he
would kill Parker on sight, and today
was the first time they have met since.
Australian Mine Afire.
Melbourne, Sept. 14. A fire has
been discovered in , the Broken Hill
mine, between Jamespn's and the
Broad Ribs shaft. Two hundred men
who were engaged in efforts to extin
guish the flames were overcome by poi
sonous fumes. Fifty have been brought
to the surface, and of these three are
dead. Efforts to subdue the fire are
being continued from the top of the
mine. . - .
TROUBLE NOT ENDED.
An Alarming Condition of Affairs at
. Hazel ten, Pa., Sept. 15. At this
writing troops are marching on the
mines of Cox Bros., at Eckley, which
lies in a valley about 18 miles from
here. Telegrams to brigade headquar
ters late this evening indioated an
alarming condition there. The re
moteness of the situation will' make
difficult the seouring of definite news
from the scene before morning. "
The superintendent of ' the Eckley
colliery telegraphed General Gobin for
troops, but later the request was with
drawn, the superintendent notifying
him that the . strikers had stopped
marching. At 4 o'clock this afternoon
Genera Gobin received telegrams that
these miners had again assembled, had
marched on the Eckley mines and forced
the miners to quit work. ': It was stated
in this dispatch that the miners had
been roughly handled. General Gobin
has ordered the city troops of Philadel
phia to the scene of the disturbance.
The start will be made shortly after
midnight, or just after daybreak. The
troops will ride across the mountains, a
distance of 18 miles, to Eckley. Eckley
is a small mining village, and lies in
a valley. There are, a number ' of col
lieries there, and fears have been enter
tained for the past 48 hours that trouble
would break out, as the- men had been
acting very ugly. - .'-.' ' '
The situation tonight in Hazleton
district is one of unrest. The collieries
in this district are apprehensive of
danger, i Requests have been pouring
in to General Gobin from the various
mines, asking that he send troops to
the places in order to prevent any pos
sible outbreak. The general states that
he will not send troops to any point
unless an outbreak does occur. The
general declines to give the names of
the collieries, as all the men in them
are still at work. The operators, how
ever, are apprehensive of a strike, and
want to be prepared for an emergency.
Two mine superintendents in this
immediate vicinity have asked Gen
eral Gobin to place guards around their
houses. This will be done. General
Gobin will not make public the names
of the superintendents who made the
requests. ',:'.- '.
Two actresses who are playing in a
theater here overheard a conversation
on the main street of Hazelton today
to this effect; They Were passing a
group of miners, and overheard one of
them remark:-"I've got the material,
but I don't know how to'piix the stuff.
If I did, I would blow them up to
.This information was sent to General
Gobin, and as he had already heard
mutterings from other sources, he de
cided to send guards to the houses of
the two superintendents. The guards
were nof placed on duty until after
Today has been regarded as the turn
ing point of the situation, because of
the prohibition issued by General Gobin
against the funeral demonstration. A
compromise was effeoted this morning,
however, and the day passed off with
out disturbance. ,' In the meantime the
Cox collieries were being watched with
intense anxiety. It was known that
the 2,000 men employed at No. 7 had
made a , demand for a compromise,
which was to be submitted to. the
operators today, with the alternative
of "strike." From 5,000 to 10,000
men are employed at all the collieries,
and such a movement would bring
them all out.
General Gobin said: . '
"The rumor that martial law has
been declared has been started by some
vicious person. There is martial law
only so far as a state of war exists.
We are here solely to assist the sheriff
in maintaining peace and order. Men
come and go as they please, ,80 long as
they behave themselves. If there is
the least infraction of the'peace which
the civio authorities are uunable to
handle, then we will render assistance."
The commander added that neither
Sheriff Martin nor any of the deputies
would be arrested while the troops were
here. - a , -
f. WIRE IN HIS AORTA. ! "
Novel Means Employed to Save Adrian
' Hehortoge's Life.1
. ; San-Francisco, Sept. 15. A surgical
operation remarkable in itself and
wonderful for its so far successful re
sult, has been performed upon Adrian
Hehortoge, a veteran and skillful ma
chinist of this city. ...
Fifteen yards of silver wire, as large
around as an ordinary hypodermio
needle, have been introduced into and
coiled within his arota, the great . arte
rial channel leading directly from the
heart. Those 45 feet of wire have
been in there for three months and
they have saved his life. They were
inserted at a time when death seemed
certain because of complications result
ing from a severely injured aorta.
" Technically the patient's trouble was
aneurism or saculated tumor of the ar
terial wall, and its development to a ;
rupture of the aorta was only a ques
tion of time with certain and instant
death, as the result. The wire was in
troduced into the aorta in order partly
to fill it and form there a clot that in
time would contract and be absorbed,
thereby restoring the channel to itB

LIVES CRUSHED OUT.
Six Victims of a Train-Wreck in the
' Indian Territory.
. Memphis, Sept. 14. A special to the
Commercial-Appeal from .Hanburn,
Ark., says: A most disastrous freight
wreck ocourred on the Iron Mountain
railroad, at Hanson, I. T., a small sta
tion 20 miles west of Van Buren, at 2
o'olock today, resulting in the death of
seven men and the serious injury of
six others, two of whom will die. The
dead are: Will Frame, Charles Frame,
Douglass Anderson, John Johnson, Bose
Henderson, Frank Hamilton and H. A.
Of the wounded two suffered inter
nal injuries. All of the dead and
wounded were sent to Vian, with the
exception of Walton's 'body, it being
brought to this place, where he has rel
atives living. None of the trainmen
were hurt. ,,
While the train -was running at a
speed of 20 miles an hour, the forward
trucks of one of the cars near the en
gine broke, wrecking 15 cars with wal
nuts and baled hay. - With 'the excep
tion of two cars in front and three in
the rear,' including the caboose, every
car of the, 20 in the train was ditched.
The middle of the train was a oar load
ed with heavy machinery, and it was
in this car that 18 men were stealing a
ride. The occupants of the wrecked car
were a party of men and boys living in
Vian, who were coming to Van Buren
to find employment in the cotton fields.
When the machinery car left the rails,
it fell on its side, nearly all of the men
being caught by the heavy beams.
1 Kansas City, Sept. 14. A special to
the Times from Hanburn, Ark., says:
'Many sad scenes were enacted at Han
son. One of the dead, whose name is
unknown, was found with his head
mashc to a pulp between two heavy
logs, his brains oozing out. Others
were crushed and mangled in a horrible
manner. Two of the dead were brothers,
Will and Charles Frame. Will was
found on one side of the track and
Charles on the other, both crushed al
most out of all semblance of human
beings. - -' -v
The scenes at Vian, when the dead
bodies of those who had resided there
arrived, were affecting in the extreme.
The parents and other kin of the de
ceased were at the depot when the train
came in. It will probably be several
days before the wreck will be cleared
away and the full extent of the dis
aster revealed. Three men are still
missing, accroding to statements of
some of those who esoaped. A large
foroe of men is at the spot, clearing
away the wreckage.
