By Kxvluslve Wire from Tin- Asioculcil Press.
San Francisco, Nov. :!. The volcano
Santa Maria was In violent eruption
when the Pacific mail steamer. City of
Panama, left Champorico for this port
nine clays ago.
The City of Panama arrived from
Pailama and way ports today, bringing
late news from the devastated regions.
While the steamer lay at Champorico,
the mountain far away was spouting
ashes', and smoke and pumice stone,
the flakes falling in showers ail over
the country.
The city of Quesaltenango has been
visited by ruin. Tills place Is located
at the base of Santa Maria, on the east
ern slope and no fears hotfitofore have
been entertained for the Iowa's safely.
All the damage reported has been on
the western side, reaching from the
mountains to the seashore, thirty wllefc
That the damage has extended across
the mountain is evidence of the terrilllc
activity of the volcano. Hefugees are
making their way to the seashore, trav
eling either to Ocas or Chumporioo and
from the ports proceeding south by
steamer. From the officers of the city
of Panama. It was learned that some of
the planters are of the opinion that, the
ashes may be benetielnl to the soil, and
tlmt the damage to the Tineas may be
oilly temporary.
Ruin Threatens Planters.
Absolute ruin threaten. many of the
planters and the livelihood of thousands
of natives for many months to tome
has been shut oft' by th" destructive
work of the volcano. The work of ro
habitatlng the Fincas probably will be
tlmt of others than the present owners
for so great has been the damage that
the majority of the plumeiv; may never
recover from their losses.
M. S- Otis, of New York, was a pas
senger on the 'ity of Panama, having
come through I rom New York. Mr.
Otis gives a vivid description of the
appearance of the laud and sea in the
neighborhood of the spouting mountain.
"As far as the eye can reach, from
Champorico," said he, "there is noth
ing to be seen but ashes and pumice
stone, AVe sailed for miles through a
sea of ashes. From the sea to Santu
Maria, the country looked like a boiling
Caldron. At short Intervals, the vol
cano vomited smoke and ashes-. At
"" times the discharge would bo carried up
n short distance Into the air and then
it would spread out like an umbrella
and fall to the earth, covering trees,
hushes and hills with a whip! sluoud.
"At other times the discharge would
seem to leap high Into the n!r as If
propelled by a shock that could be felt
all the way to Champorico. Karlh
qunktis were frequent and the people
felt that their country rested on a
very uncertain foundation. The pen

any estimate of the number of lives lost
but they all agree that the wot It of de
vastation an far as the coffee nhintu-
tlons are concerned, Is complete, With
out having familiar knowledge ot the
country. I should say that, this state

light weight championship in his con
test with Young .llmuiie Brltt. of this
city, who knocked Erne out In the sev
enth round at the Mechanics pavilion
tonight. The contest was the fastest
ever witnessed In this city. Brltt, while
not so clever as the Duffumlun, was
tlie more aggressive and landed the
most telling blows. The men went at
It from the sound of the bell in tlie first
round and for nearly eight rounds It
was a nip and tuck contest. Brltt
proved himself far the cleverer in the
clinches ond never missed a chance to
use his right or left to advantage. The
eastern lad showed his superior gener
alship in many tight places and kept
Brltt off with straight lefts during tlie
early part of the battle and later in the
contest discovered that he could upper-
cut the Callfornlan .successfully. On one
or two occasions he had the San Fran
cisco boy at a disadvantage. Erne was
in a bad plight several times, but fought
back with superb gumeness and suc
ceeded In hoping the Callfornlan off at
the most critical periods, in only one
run nd did Erne have a decided advan
tage, the fifth. Erne In this round land
ed a straight left on Brltt's Jaw and
followed It up with a terrllfle right to
the heart. He continued to play for
the Callfornlan's heart and at the close
had his youthful adversary In an al
most groggy condition, lu the sixth
round both men fought furiously, Brltt
trying to regain the ground he lost in
tlie last half of the preceding round
and Erne endeavoring to secure a, de
cided lead over llrltt. The latter played
for the nuffalonlan's stomach mid heart
and during the last half minute of the
round placed his left one on the solur
plexus. llrltt fought fast and hard,

punches administered by Brltt was not

and rushed at his man landing terrlfiio

cess of Their New York Trip.
That tlie miners' representatives ara
decidedly piqued at tlie experience they
encountered in AYashington can bo
gathered from the following statement
Issued yesterday afternoon by Messrs.
Darrow and Lloyd.
Tlie commission adjourned for ten days
lu pursuance of an arrangement between
the parties to give opportunity for con
ciliation on account of a telegram which
we understand was written by George K.
Baer in the presenco of and with the con
sent of every railroad concerned and wan
falgned by Wayne MacVeagh. Tills tele
gram was written after a careful read
ing of tlie lenatlve agreement which hud
been prepared and written by counsel of
both parties and which had been submit
ted to the commission. At the rniiuest of
Mr. MacVeagh, Mr. Mitchell, Mr. Darrow
and Mr. Lloyd went to AVashlngton to con
sult upon some minor details of tho agree
ment. There was no friction or Impor
tant disagreement between the parties at
tho meeting in AVashlngton. Later In tho
day and after tho conference In New
York with the independent operators, Mr.
MaoA'eagh received a telegram calling oft
nil negotiations a'nd advising that tho
matter bo settled by the commission in a
regular hearing.
The man who wrota. tho telegram to
.Tiulvo Ciay stating that the main fea
tures of tlie coiltiact were acceptable,
was tlie same man who signed tho tele
gram to AVayne MacVeagh three or four
days later stating that negotiations must

Mr. AVIlleox, of the Delaware and Hud
son company; Carroll D. JVrlght and
probably Mr. Baer.
AVe can see no reason for the expression
of any opinion, the facts speak for them
selves. AVe have been leady at all times
to consult with any ono in Interest and
make any reasonable adjustment, but
we have no anxiety whatever over the
case or Its results and shall be ready for
business when tho commission meets.
Clarence P. Darrow.
Henry D. Lloyd,
The best explanation of the sudden
and somewhat surprising turn which
the negotiations took Is given by u
frank member of tlie independent op
erators' committee.
An Operator's View.
"Mr. Morgan was influenced by
Wayne MacVeagh to believe that an
amicable adjustment of the contro
versy was desirable. Mr. Morgan, prob
ably had not given the subject a half
luuir's consecutive thought, and, ot
course, wus easily Influenced by tho
well-meaning, but too enthusiastic; Mr.
MacA'eagh. When, however, the coal
road presidents nud Mr. Morgan came
lo consider the thing soberly, they were
not long lu arriving at the conclusion
that whatever authority had been given
Mr. MacA'eagh lo negotiate a settle
inent (out of court) had better ho held
In abeyance.
"Accordingly whwi our independent
operators' committee arrived we found
the coal presidents ready to agree with
our lino of reasoning. There was really
no controversy between the coal pres
idents and us after Tuesday morning.
How much power, If any, they delegated
to .Air. .MacA'eagh, 1 do not know, but I
know that whatever that power, If any,
was, it was withdrawn for the very
reasons we had to off or.
"Tho public does not want the con
troversy settled out of court, tho Inde
pendent operatois would never consent
to settlement out of court, und the besl
thing for the' big companies is that It
should not be settled 'out of court.' For
the best Interests of all concerned,-th
miners Included, the commission should
hear the whole case and render a de
cision. The question of wages could ho
adjusted amicably, no doubt, but the
question of wages Is not by any means
the main question at Issue. There
should a manifesto from the commis
sion and a strong manifesto, at that
on the matter of boycotts, on the mat
ter oC an employer's right to hire and
discharge and the matter of "workmen
having the right to sell tils labor when,
where and bow he chooses without let
or hindrance from a labor union.
Can Prove Assertion.
