MADKII), Nov. 0.-Copyrlght, 160.1, by
tk Associated Pres. The torrlblo dlias
ter which hiu wrecked the port of Santam
4er and destroyed hundred of liven, Iiai
cnt thrill of horror throughout Spain.
The story of this great dlnnntcr In brief
it ai follows: The Cabo Mnchlchaco, n
Spanish stcatiuhlp belonging to Bilbos,
caught Are Friday nfternoon while Iho
learner was alongside tha qimy dlschnrg
lug part of her cargo, which comprised
nearly 11,000 ton of merchandise, though
the main part of thin cargo was ironoro
and a number of aacks of Hour, barrels of
wine, many ousts of petroleum and srer
BOO caiea of dynamite, of which only twen
ty casta wero declared on the steamer's
manifest. The remaining 460 enscs of dyna
mlta were contraband, nud to tho shame
of the shippers of this contraband dytm
niltr it has caused Immense loss of life
nnd vast damage to property,
i Flame broke out from the con I bunkers
aud noon raged so fiercely ns to be beyond
control of the ship's crew.though the latter
promptly took steps to smother tho Unities.
They failed and called on the local nttthor
Hies for help and the flro department nud
civic guard responded, bended by local
municipal ofllcUls. Tho provincial gov
rrnor, whowns one of tho first to reach
the spot, displayed tho greatest activity
in directing tho operations, nud upon
learning that tho ship's manifest showed
that there were twenty cases of dynamite
ou board had It nil taken ashore.
Crowd Throng the Scene of l'erll.
A tug was then summoned nnd ordered
to tow the vesiiel out of danger of suiting
Are to the wharf and buildings thereon.
Meantime thousands of pcoplo had
gathered at the quay and on tho streets
contiguous. The flro from tho ship's
bunkers spread quickly nud ignited tho
petroleum which formed part of the cargo
which the authorities had for some reason
or other failed to rcmovo when tho twenty
cases of dynamite were taken ashore. At
about 4:30 p. in. a dotonatlou on board
a .owed, as it afterwards turned out, that
tho boilers had burst, and soon after thcro
was another terrible detonation hoard.
The steamer seemed to open in half,
(sending a blate of flro sky wa rd, over which
a crown of smoke rested for several min
utes. A report of such awful intensity
was heard that it shook the earth for miles
nround, caused houses to totter, smashed
every window within thu radius of nrlllu
shot, filled tho air with a mass of flying
iron, burning wood, blackened timbers,
aud scorched beams, which soon after fell,
a death-dealing hail, upon tho neighbor
ing houses, scattering death and destrue
tlon wherever it crushed downward.
The force of the exploding dynamite
caused such a concussion that In addition
to shaking hundreds of buildings off their
foundations it actually rank n huudred
mall crafta lu tho harbor in addition to
setting fire to n largo number of other
vessels nud slnrtlnu t-onlluL'ratlniis unon
several of tie larger ships, Including tho
Alfonso XII, which vessel caught lire ho
y suddenly nud burned so fiercely that foity
of her crew lost their lives on board of
i One Hundred l'coplo tio Mark Mud.
J For a moment after tho disaster the peo-
pie were positively stunned with dismay
,v nnd horror, uud then followed n panic
'h during which 10H people aio reported to
have gone stark mnd.whilo tho vast major
ity were so paralysed with fear and shock
thnt they were Incapable of moving to thu
assistance of tho d) lug or of making any
, effort to extinguish tho flames which
! sprang up from n mass of buildings. Tho
quay nud promeiiadu c lose to tho scene of
the explosion presented the most sicken-
iug sight ever witnessed. Mangled und
' blackened corpse wero scattered hero nud
there or were in heaps in many cases
upon the wounded aud dying, whoso fear
ful shrieks of agony filled the air aud
truck terror into tho hearts of those who
after a tiiuo summoned sulllclent courage
' to venture near thu carnage ground.
Over 100 people nro said to have been
precipitated Into tho sea by the explosion,
,.md th?re beneath tho hail of blood, wood
- and iron they met de.ith with tho crown of
' ' the unfortunate steamer nud the tug boat
r' which was about to tow Iter into tho bay.
On board the tug boat wero many citl.ens
