RoanoKe and Scotia in Avoid
ing Collision Ran on
Eureka, Cal., Oct. 15. Tho steam
er3 Roanoke and Scotia are on the
south spit. Inside tho entrance to
the bar In Humboldt Bay, destined to
remain there until morning, if not
longer. There is no danger to eith
er vessel unless tho weathei changes
and tho bar becomes rough, In which
event they ore likely to be wrecked.
There could bo no loss of llfo, ns
the passengers could bo taken off
with safety. The life-saving crew in
Its boat is now aligned alongside, nl-
I so tho federal gasoline launch, nnd
they will remain thcro until morn
ing. Tho Scotia, lumber ladon, loft port
about, half an hour before tho Roan
oke. She went out to tho bar, but
finding It choppy, turned back to
the harbor for tho night. Tho Roan
oke left port nt G o'clock, and pnss
Ing tho south Jetty wharf, turning
into tho channel outward bound, dis
covered the Scotia right ahead.
In order to avoid a collision, both
vessels turned out of tho channel
and landed on the south spit. Tho
Scotia, by reason of her lighter
draught, wont 50 feet farther than
the Roanoke. Tho Roanoke got out
of the channel just n length, her
stern remaining in tho channel,
whllo her bow was on tho sand.
Tho distress signal being blown,
tho tug Rnnger responded and a line
was thrown to the Ronnoko and
made fast. At 10:30 last ovonlng
all effort to move tho big vessel
proved unavailing. In fact, the
efforts drove the steamer higher on
tho sand, and now Bho Is hard and
fast, and will provo a heavy lift. v
All tho passengers on tho Roanoke
are orderly, the captain assuring tho
passengers of their safety. It Is ex
pected that the floodtldo will shift
the vessel, and permit tho tug to pull
her off. No difficulty expected In
getting tho Scotia into deep water,
once the Roanoke Is out of tho way.
Eureka, Oct. 15. Both tho Sco
tia and Roanoke were hauled off at
high tide. Tho Ronnoke Is not dam
aged, but tho Scotia Is leaking badly.
Washington, Oct. 15. The su
preme court today refused to grant
a rehearing or tho caso of senator
Burton, of Kansas.
Ho was convicted of practicing for
pay beforo the postoftlce depart
ment whllo in tho united States
senate, and now must Borve six
months in Jail In Iron county, Mo.,
and nay a fine of $2500. Tho sen-
tenco was imposed by the federal
court of St. Louis. Tho denial of tho
rehearing removes all possibility of
Burton's legally escaping punish
ment. Abilene, Kan., Oct. 15. When
Burton heard the decision of tho su
preme court at his homo, ho said:
"It is not my time to talk." Ho noti

In the Steerage
Hongkong, Oct. 15. Tho British
steamer Hankow, from Canton, was
burned at 3:10 o'clock Sunday morn
ing, while lying alongside hor wharf.
Hundreds of Chinese passengers wero
'burned to death and a valuablo car
go was destroyed. All tho European
passengers nnd crew wero, saved.
? The steamer Hankow, with 2000
Chinese passengers, men women and
.children, and seven Europeans, and
acargo Including 3700 bales of mat
ting, 560 bales of raw silk and "400
bales of waste silk, arrived from
Canton at 3 o'clock this morning,"
nnd was shortly afterward moored
at tho wharf.
Her chief officer reported to Cap
tain Branch that tho ship was nflro.
The captain then directed tho chief
engineer to turn on tho water
through the fire hose. This was Im
possible, for tho reason thnt within
five minutes nfter tho alarm was
given the Hankow was ablaze fore
Hundreds Hum or Drown.
Captain then awakened the Eu
ropean pnssongers, who rushed down
tho gangwny, the ladles In their
nlghtclothes. Tho crew was com
pelled to lenvo the ship, which by
this tlnio was a veritable furnace.
The Chinese steerngo passengers
wero thrown Into -a frightful panic.
Horrifying shrieks nnd cries to savo
their lives wero heard, but escapo
was Impossible, owing to the inflam
mable nature of the cargo. Hun

others Jumped Into tho harbor and

Responding to signals, tho British
cruiser Flora and tho naval dockyard
dispatched contingents of engines
nnd nsslstnnts. The floating brigades
of firemen, made heroic efforts to ex
tinguish the flames, which leaped to
n height of over 60 feet.
The British steamer Pow An,
which was berthed at tho same wharf
was towed out to save her from de
struction. A neighboring pier, 100
yards distant was burned to the
water's edge. Governor Nathan, ac
complished by his nld-do- camp, ar
rived at tho scene nt 4:15 n. in., and
suggested scuttling the ship, but tho
suggestion was found to bo imprac

Tho remalder was totally destroyed.
Boycott Mny Ro Cut.o.
There are many theories as to the
cause of tho flro. The first is that
it was caused by the overturning of
a lantern of a Chinese boarding
house runner who camo aboard seek
ing customers. Tho second is that
an opium-smoker accidentally set
fire to matting, the third la that it
was caused by the crossing of electric
wires. A fourth theory, and one that
Is considered most probable is that
the fire was Incendiary and was an
outgrowth of a boycott against river
