probably unseen schooner. The night was

Seven minutes later both vessels were at
the bottom of the sea, and with them sank
sixty-eight of their passengers and crews.
In those seven minutes n collision and
death struggle with the waves had taken
place, a scene had occurred which even tho
dozen survivors cannot give tho details of
without stopping to make sure that it is
not all a horrible dream.
, Fourteen of the Dead.
Tlio entlro lot of passengers of the Viz

Juan Pedro, a partner ot tho firm of J. M.
Ceballos & Co., of this city, and one of the
owners of tho lost steamship; M. A. Calvo,
wife and son; M. Purr And two children;
Mr. A. Hulz, Jose Ac&lbla, Ramon Al

Twelve of the crew of seventy-seven wero
saved from tho steamship. The fate ot the
crew of the schooner Is still unknown. Tho
.first news received of the disaster in this
city was when the steamer Humboldt, from
Brazil, arrived at her dock in Brooklyn

catastrophe, which sho had picked up at

Cnpt. Black, of the Humboldt, said that
at daybreak his ship was oft Barnegat

camo a cry for help. Peering in that direc
tion through the mist of the early morning
tho officers of the Humboldt saw threo
masts sticking out of tho water, and cling

seen. Quickly a boat was lowered and rowed
to the unfortunate people. There wero

CAPT. ALLEN'S DEFENSE.
He llellevrs There Was No Lookout on
PillLADELTniA, Pa., Nov. 4. Capt, John
Allen, of the 111 fated coastwise coal
schooner Cornelius Hargrave, whoso collis
ion with tile Spanish passenger steam
ship Vizcaya off Barnegat Thursday
night resulted in the sinking of both
ships and the loss of many lives, denies
that he did not do his full duty as the
commanding officer of the Hargrave. "I
think my first mate's accounts of the
cause of tho collision Is mainly correct,"
he said, "but I can't say that I agree with
him regarding the action of the Vlzcaya's
officers. My opinion Is that there was not
any lookout on tho Vizcaya at all. The
disaster was due to tho carelessness of the
officers ou the Spanish steamship. So far
as I am concerned, J Adhered .tOiBiaritlmo
law and did my duty to the letter. If
there had been a lookont on tho Vizcaya I
really don't see how there could have been
"We saw tho green lights of the steamer
several miles away about at half hour be
fore tho disaster occurred. Our red lights,
which were in perfect order, were burning.
When Perrlng informed me that astcaraer
was in sight I went on deck. The steam
ship was running at twelve knots an hour,
and we were going along at about seven
knots. Being u sailing vessel nnd on the
starboard side, we had the right of way,'
The steamer pressed down upon us. Feel
ing that something was wrong, I took an
extraordinary precaution of having a torch
waved, but tho steamer kept bearing down
upon us. Then I jumped for the steam
whistle and sounded it. Here the Vizcaya
people seemed to realize the danger and
the steamship's course was changed, but
it was too late. Both vessels were so large
that neither could veer about in au instant.
Wo struck her amidships. That's bow it
all happened. It was gross carelessness on
board the Vizcaya. I hear that I have been
nccused of having deserted Second Mate
Walker and lookout Hurry Gainer; that
I Intentionally left them on the sinking
vessel. That Is not true. Walker was or
dered to take charge of the boat so that
the Spaniards could not steal It. When
we pushed oil from the sinking vessel
neither Walker uor Gainer was around.
"It was their fault that they did not get
Into the boat. After we had left tho Har
graves I neard Walker yelling to me, I
yelled back for him and Gainer to jump
overboard, and we would pick them up.
You see, If we had gone back to the sink
ing schooner the Spaniards would have
made a rush to get Into the boat, and un
doubtedly all of us would have been
drowned. If Walker and Galuer had
jumped overboard then we would have
picked them up. I think I did what was
Capt. Allen will remain In the city for a
couple of days an then will start for his
home at Fall River, Mass. The Cornelius
Hargraves had somo twenty owners, of
whom Capt, Allen is one, They claim
that their total loss will be fu4,000, the in
surance on the vessel being very light.

An Increase of Over 13,000,000 Since the

Aealn In Population The Various States
and Ttiolr Iucrease Since 1880.
Washington, Nov. 1. The census office
has announced the population of the United
States, as Bbown by the first count of per
sons and families, exclusive ot white per
sons In Indian Territory, Indians on reser
vations and Alaska, to be B2,4S0,540. These
figures may be slightly chauged by later
and more exact compilations, but such
changes will not be material. In 18S0
the population was 50,155,872. The abso
lute Increase ot the population In ten years
Intervening was 12,324,757 and the percent
age of increase was 24.57. In 1870 the popu
lation was stated as 38,558,371, According
to these figures the absolute increase In the
decade between 1S70 and 1880 was 11,597,412
and tho percentage ot Increase was 30.08.
The bulletin announcing these figures Is
addressed to Secretary Noble and signed
by superintendent Porter. It says:
Superintendent l'orter Kxplalns.
"Upon their face these figures Bhow that
the population has increased between 18S0
ond 18U0 only 727,245 more than between
1870 and 1880, while the rate of Increase has
apparently diminished from 30.08 to 24.57
per cent. If these figures were derived
from correct data they would indeed be
disappointing. Such a reduction In the
rate ot Increase In the face ot the enormous
immigration during the past ten years
would argue a great dlmtnuatlon in the
fecundity of the population or a correspond'
lng Increase In its death rate. These fig.
urea are, however, easily explained when
the character of tho data used is under
stood. R is well known, the fact having
been demonstrated uv extensive and thor.
ough investigation, that the census of 1870
was grossly deficient In the southern states,
so much so as not only to give nn exagger

affect very materially the rate of increase

Now Yorki '
. WisniKOTOH, Nov. t, 1890.
lion. DarU n. Hill:
VtXK Sib Your communication of tho Slat ult,
was duly recelred. There had slroady been dellv.
ared to me a letter from th mayor of the city
of New York on tlio same subject the claim of
that city to a recount ot lta population by tho
United States cenmis authorities While you
hare added Uie weight of the governor's onlce
to the complaint, you have fulled to add to
those already presented by the mayor a single
suggestion of the slightest value. It was wholly
unnecessary for you to remind mo of tho pro
visions of the constitution of the United States
relating to enumeration and apportionment of
representatives or the doctoral college) or that
provision of the census law allowing amend
ments and recounts. All of this was Very fami
liar law to me. and your quotation of It might
hare been copied from my lost opinion delivered
to the mayor, and which you stato you had read
In the newspnjicrs.
No Kxhortntlnn Needed,
Neither did I need any exhortation upon the
subject of fair apiortlonmenU, as an equal ap
portionment throughout the United Btates, and
the perfect freedom and equality of tho Individ
ual elector Is a reform to which I have gUen my
earnest supjiorc, and which Is worthy that of
eiery public olllcer and every Individual cltlteu.
Had you read the corresponce with the mayor,'
whose tmmediMo concern this business has been,
you would have fouud )our topio already ex
hausted Bucb app trtlonment you may, how
erer, be reminded would cert-Mnly ond perma
nently promote the success of tho iarty to which
you incorrectly say all the enumerators of tho
city or Itew otk belong.
Tho Imputations of Trnud,
It Is much to Ik) regretted that In a letter to me
when acting upon a purely onlcial matter you,
as governor, should speak as a partisan and im
pute a corrupt purpose to the census enumera
tors to secure party advantage by diminishing
the count of the city of New York.
xour Imputation against the enumerators and
the census work Is so entirely gratuitous and un
founded as to be slanderous, as you should know
mat your abusive course could not tend to pro
mote that fair and judicial consideration I have
been disposed to giro to the application of the
mayor. Your charge lmputiug frauduleut mo
tives to others rather suggests that as your party
thinks an Increased population would Inure to its
advantage tho count of the police (taken as it
has beeu since the police board or New York has
been made partisan) neods the very closest scru
tiny and analysis The charges now being made
in New York against the city government by
Lvmocrats are not ot a kind to relieve any work
done by It from tho gravett suspicion of reckless
lie Hulds tho Governor Hcsponslhle,
Your accusations, heretofore coullned to In
terviews and stump speeches, began even beforo
the enumeration was announced. Some of tbe
Democratic newspapers lu New York and else
where made the ceiuus enumerators' work very
difficult by exciting the prejudice of Ignoranco
against it, and it is to be remarked thut you, as
early as the 1st of July last, made au mtdreta
before the lleudrlcks club, at Indianapolis, ia
which you bitterly assailed the census ofllco and
its work, and asserted, without any knowledgo
whatever, the same evil purpose you now send to
me officially. You then repeated the newspaper
criticisms and spoke of the "great army of in
quisitors sent prying into our bouses asking im
pertinent questions, making false records," etc.,
and you did not fail to notice tho possible cfTect
of all this In raising popular distrust and disin
clination to respond to tbe enumerators. You
did not succeed In these efforts to any consider
able degree, but you are largely responsible for
any Inaccuracies that may exist.
"Continuous and 1'nrtlsnn Assnnlts."
You set the example by denouncing a law of
congress, and thus suggested Its violation by
your less acute political followers. Your early
and continuous partisan assaults ujion tho census
nave had necessarily a motile which is easily dis
cerned. That motive points to au unjust end
which I certainly shall not prOinoto. It is but
just that there Bhould be no delay In completing
the ceusus that tlio purposes for whicii it Is in
tended may be accomplished.
xou further asserted hi the speech mentioned
that '-it (the ltepublicau party) will not repu-
diato that even more plainly declared policy ot
uroamng tne power or tne sona souin lu presi
dential as welt as congressional elections by de
liberately Ignoring tho vast increases of popula
tion in that section of tho country during the
last decado." The truth is, no complaint what
ever has been received from any southern state,
as a state, ngainst the census; and the only
serious claim or nn erroneous diminution of pop
ulation and representation by a state camo from
the Republican stato of Oregon. Out of the
2,781 counties in all the states and territories,
there has been no complaint whatever, savofroni
Muttnonah county in Oregon. There has not
been a complilnt from any southern city that
has not been promptly nnd satisfactorily adjust
ed without a recount, save at Columbus Go, and
there was found an increase of 1,188 only.
A Question of l'utronuge, lie Savs.
You seem to bo against a census to be taken
even by your own state, for you vetoed a hill
passed by its legislature lu IttSS, and which was
required hy Its constitution. It is reasonable to
suppose that the patronage you seem to think so
Influential lu political affairs would not have
fallen In your hands, or, judging you by tho
standard you apply to others, your official action
would have been just the opposite ot what it
As I have demonstrated, the great body ot the
people of the United Stales are content with the
census, and aro uninfluenced by partUan assaults
such as yours.
Sorry Ho Had to Do It.
Sustained hy their confidence, I shall proceed
witli the discharge of my ofllcial duties In this
and all other business coming before me, care
fully and justly, correcting what I may be con
vinced Is wrong, and fearlet-aly adhering to what
1 believe to be right. I regret the necessity of
addressing tlio chief magistrate of the leading
stato of tho Union in the terms I have employed,
but I find my Justification in the reckless intem
perance of language you have seen lit to use,
language which Is lacking as much in truth as it
Is In the dignity befitting your great office, which
in the past has been filled by eminent men of
both political parties of New York. Upon tho
merits of the ma) or's application I shall reply to
him. Yours truly, John W, Koblk. tseris.i---
FOUR WERE KILLED.
A Fatal Smash up on the 1)., L. and IV.
Syracuse, N. Y., No. 4. The Philadel
phia and New York express on the Dela
ware, Lackawanna and Western railroad,
while descending tho steep grade near
Ilock cut, threo inilt'S from this city, last
evening crashed Into a coal train standing
on a switch and waiting for the track to
bo cleared for Its passage southward. Both
locomotives wero completely wrecked and
tho baggage and mall cars were crushed
to pieces. Of tho other cars on the passen
ger train, four in number, three were
thrown from the track, the force of tho
collision hurling them into a position al
most at right angles with the rails. The
single Pullman car, which was next to the
mail car, kept its place.
Michnel Burke, of this city, engineer of
the passenger train, and J, W. Doyle, of
Great Bend, Pa., engineer ou tho coal
train, wero killed outright with their fire
men, Jerry Lee, of this city, and Morton
Fernau, of Great Bend.
Tho four men wero burled under tho
wreck. Doyle was dug out by the train
hands, with the assistance of somo ot tho
passengers. The other three remained in
the wreck nil night.
As by a miracle none of the passengers
wero killed and only one of them, Mrs.
Thomas Corcoran, of No. 21 Myrtle ave
nue, Bultalo, was seriously Injured. Mrs.
Corcoran was on her way homo from Cort
land. Sho had two ribs broken nnd her
right wrist was dislocated, She also sus
tained severe Injutlos to her spine and her
left, shoulder was badly bruised. She Is
now at St. Joseph's hospital in this city,
aud her chances of recovery are very doubt
ful. Michael Tiernoy, of Great Beud, Pa.,
head brakeman on the conl train, was also
badly Injured. Atthetlmoof tlio collision
he was In tho cab with Doyle and Fernan,
waiting for the passongcr train to pass.
He was burled In the wreck, but was got
out In a few mltmtos. Tiernoy was so
badly scalded that the skin peeled oft from
his right side and hip. 1IU face and head
were bruised aud his right knee was seri
ously injured. It is thought that lie may
A. K. Kimball, of Oswego, N. Y a
brakeman ou the passenger train, and
Baggageman V. II. Coimcruall, of tho
same place, were buried under the baggage
car, but neither was seriously hurt. C. C.
Darby, of Cortland, N, Y., a postal clerk
of Syracuse, president of the State Liquor
Dealers' association, sustained slight In.
The wildest excitement prevailed for au
hour or two after tho news of the disaster
reached this city, owing to the fact the
railroad authorities telephoned that tha
cars had taken lire, and asked the assist
ance of the fire department. This Infor
taatlon happily proved to be erroneous.
Among tho passeugers was Henry Wes
ton Kdwards, of Imilon, Knglund, the
