Tuns of Earth Crash Down Upon tha
' Houses, Without Warning A Score
of Injured Persons Taken from
A tremendous landslide has just occurred
la Qu bee; several thousand tons of rock slid
from Cap Diamond, at the end of Duffer in
Terrace, to Champlain street, three hundred
feet below, demolishing it its course seven
dwellings. . : ' .
Six bodies have been taken from (be ruins,
viz. : Thomas Farrell and two of his children,
also two children named Burke and one un
known child. Farrell's mother-in-law, Mrs.
Allen, and her husband are still in the ruins.
About twenty-five persons bave been re
moved from the debris, t adly injured. Some
have broken arms and legs, and others are
badly crushed and mutilated.
It is supposed that at least fifty persons are
yet under the ruins.
All the wounded removed from the ruins
were conveyed to the Marine and Fisheries
Department, where madical men and clergy
men looked after them.
The debris covers the roads in a solid mass
some 300 feet in length, and from flftedu to
twenty-five feet high.
I'. :' impossible to say at present how many
are deid and wounded.
Later The mass of rock detached from
tlie clid's side left a vacant t pace of extra
ordinary dimensions under Dutferin terrace,
and that great promenade is now unsafe. Tttu
corpses and sixteen wounded bave now baen
taken out It will take several days to re
cover all-the bodies. The damage will ex
ceed f 100,000. The bouses in that locality
were built of stone and brick and inhabited
by ship loborers, etc
The officers and men of tne Royal School
of Cavalry are coming to the rescue with
ropes, picks and shovels. About six hundred
men are now at work. Three more bodies
bave been taken from the ruins. The bodies
are covered with coagulated blood and dut,
aud are, a bickening spectacle to behold. The
Redeinpionst father are among the rescuers.
Crieof "Holpl hel pi" are beard from be

Very little progresj is made in recovering

FATAL CRASH ON THE RAIL.
Two Persons Killed and a Score of
About 7.05 P. M. the train from Elralra
south , carrying seven coaches, ran into a Fall
Brook engine at Tioga Juuct.ion,Pa.,causing a
fearful wreck, Killing and injuring in all
about twenty-flye persons. The train was
coming down a heavy grade, aud, owing to
t ie slippery condition of the track and the
refusal of the air-brakes to work, the engi
neer was unable to stop the train at tae
station, and it rusbed by, crashing into one
of tbeFallBrook heavy Jumbo engines, com
pletely demolishing both. The engineer and
fireman jumped, and escaped with s ight in
juries, 'iha Bmoker and three passenger cars
were smashed into kindling wooJ. The
wrock caught fire, and it was with difficulty
that some of the passengers could be rescued
from the burning wreck. The flames lit up
the heavens for miles around, and rople
rushed in from all pirts to render what aid
they could. A message was sent to Eimira
asking for medical aid, and a train was made
up in a very short time. In the meantime,
doctors from L wrenceville and Tioga had
arrived and given all possible assistance.
Stretchers were quickly provided, and the
wounded were carried to neighboring houses.
The names of the dead are:

SCANDAL OF A DISASTER,
Misappropriation of theSpokane Falls
Itellef Funds and Supplies.
Councilmen Sidney D. Waters and Peter
Dueber and Policeman William Gillespie, of
Spokane Falls, Washington Territory, are
charged with having formed a conspiracy
to appropriate tbe funds and supplies fur
nished by contribntion for the relief of those
who suffered by the recent disastrous fire.
Robert Ioglis was arrested at Chlco, CaL,
several weeks ago on O'charreof having sold
provisions and other supplies and appro
printed tbe proceeds. Ha was suspected bus

being brought back be made the startling
statement that a conspiracy existed among
tbe officials and others for tho appropriation
of the relief supplies on a lare scale.
Inglis was examined and admitted to ball,
but bus since disappeared. The supposition
is that be was bought off. A partial investi
gation bas been made. It shows that several
thousand dollars' worth of goods have been
stolen and converted iato money. A report
has been made which seriously Implicates
Councilmen Dueber and Waters, and war
rants bave been sworn out by A. M. Cannon,

tbe fact that both whites and negroes have

county, says that a justice of the peace in
that county went through a number of thu
larger negro, settlements last, week asking
the blacks to declare themselves for peace or
war. He carried two papers with him, one
for peace the other for war, and asked the
negroes to sign on or the other, but they ail
refused to sign either paper. He returned
with a wild report that a general uprising
of tbe negroes was about to begin.
His story created considerable excitement
in places and caused a number of white peo
ple living in tbe country to hasten into ihe
towns wuh their families. All the Win
chester rifles to be obtained in that section
bave been purchased and there is consid
