LovnoN, Oct :!.-- Dispatches received
here from Iliogo, Japan, say that the
earthquake which occurred in that
country on Wednesday last destroyed
the towns of Xagoya, Gifu and Ognki.
All of the public biildings and most of
the smaller structures in these places
wero thrown down. A lire which
started among the wrecked buildings
in Xagoya completed the work of de
struction in the most crowded quarter
of the place.
It is estimated that the total number
of persons who lost their life by the
disaster exceeded 3,000. Many vessels
are reported to have been wrecked in
the vicinity of Iliogo, and during the
seismic disturbances the waters in the
lakes in the surrounding country were
The nrious wagon roads are block
aded 13" the immense heaps of debris.
Traffic on the different railroads is sus

entirely prostrated, thus shutting off
almost all communication with the de
vastated places. In consequence full de
tails of the catastrophe cannot le
learned for several davs to come.
