sands of panic stricken Americans , Kngllsrf

jumped out of tlio railway carriages still
wearing tlio costumes they had worn nt tlm

AN A.MinucAN iiuruonn's RTOIIV.
1 saw Mr. Leonard Jeromu this morning ,
llo said the panic was frightful and that ho
lind gone through the most exciting experi
ence of his life. Tlio rush to get places on
the tialn was simply nwful.
1 asked him If any Americans ho knew
were hurt and he replied''no , " that all were
frightened but nobody was hurt. Mr. Jerome ,
who sccmod In first-rato health , left at 11 this
morning for London.
Mr. John Lowery thus describes his Im
pressions :
"Mis. Lowery and myself were staying nt
the Hotel Westminster at Mce. Our apart
ments were on the ground floor. I went to
the hotel after the great ball and , In accord-
nnco with my custom , went to bed leaving
two caudles burning on the table near the
bed , ns 1 Intended to read. But 1 fell asleep
nud when I woke up I saw one of the candles
just going out. 1 looked nt my watch
it was hall past 5. 1 blow out the other can
dle nnd turned ever to go to sleep , but soon
I hoard a nolso over my head just as If an
Iron safe were being moved. I said to my
self , 'My gracious , can that bo burglar ? , or Is
It still pcoiilo from the masked hall continu
ing the festivities.1 A few seconds later I
heard a noise such as might have boon
caused by ton thousand creat Iron safes all
moving nbout nt the same time.
This noise culminated In the most
diabolical crash Imaginable. I was tossed
out of bed with a sudden jerk , and I said to
inysolf , 'my gracious ! this must be an earth
quake. ' I ran across tlio sitting room to Mrs.
Lowery'snpartmontand explained that an
earthquake was going on nud there was no
time to lose.Vo jumped ont of a window
and , rushing across the promenade des
Anglais , took possession of the bathing
machines , and lived In them till j ester-
day morning , when wo managed
to get places In the train for Paris. No
Americans were hurt except Mr. Hatliaway.
But It Is wonderful there were not more
casualties. Just ns wo left the hotel West
minster the hotel cracked open nnd the upper
stories came down with a tremendous crash.
The house noxtto the American consulate
also tumbled down. "
A niiArino ACCOUNT.
I also saw nt the Lyons railway station Mr.
O. F. Sloan , his wife and child. They were
all clothed In very prlmatlve garments , partly
concealed beneath fur and ulsters.
Mr. Sloan said : "My wife , my child nnd
myself only arrived at Nice a few days ago.
Wo stopped at tlio Terminus hotel , All of
us were sound aslecp.whonearly onWednes _
day morning , wo were aroused by 'n fearful
rumbling noise nnd a motion like" the swayIng -
Ing of a ship in a heavy rolling
sea. Then came a tremendous luich ,
nnd wo were all tossed out of our
beds on the lloor. The wardrobe nnd
rest of tlm furniture all tumbled over and the
clock slid from tlm mantelpiece on to the
lloor. I exclaimed : 'My God , this Is nn
earthquake. Our time Is come. Let us all
co together. ' In a few seconds the swaying
motion ceased , and wo ran Into the streets.
Just as wo had escaped down came the whole
.hotel. How nobody was Injured seems a
miracle. Tlm sight of the panic-stricken
crowds In tlm streets is one I shall never
forgot. Wo waited all day at the railway
station whore people half clad were lyine on
the platforms. Tlm rush nud crush to got
Into the trains Is Impossible to describe.
People were kept two days waiting to cej
Into a train , sleeping on the platforms with
the tickets In their pockets , nnd whenovei a
train came up , crowds of men would ru&h
right over the people , walking upon and
trampling down women and children , caus
ing many Injuries. ( Soldiers , however , were
on duty and me now keeping order. "
A NKW YOIIKHR'S ixt'iiuii.\CE.
Among the earthquake refugees who ar
rived here to-day is Mr. Charles Klnsteln , of
Now Vork , who occupied room > o. 1 In the
Grand hotel nt Nice when tin- earthquake
came. He thus describes his experience" :
" 1 wont to bed at half patt 1 on Wednes
day morning after enjoying mybolf nt the
grand masquerade ball. 1 n bed 1 read the
Now York Heralds ot February 10 and 11 ,
which weip received In Nice on Shrovn
Tuesday , nnd dually I took one of Kola's
novels to read myself asleep
with. The Hist bhosk aroused mo and 1
thought It was another of those storms that
lately rajjed along the llvh > ra. Then the
second shock came. AlthoiiKli It lasted only
thirty seconds It seemed as If it would never
stop. 1 felt Just ns It 1 were hca sick and
tossing In it berth. Soon 1 board piercing
ahricka from all parts of the hotel. 1 rushed
out of my room nnd found the long corridors
filled with ladles In nil sorts
of deshabille. Soiuo were In night dressi-s
only and a vciy largo proportion were with
out their wiga. They ull made a despot ate
charge for the open nlr and boon reached the
place Mnssena. None of them dared lo-enter
tbolr hotel , but sout back their sotvaitts for
their clothing and dressed tliemsehes nt
best they could In the open square.
I tiled to get away fiom the town but touml
no Immediate chance of success. Thostatlon
nud all its appioaches wuio ciowded with
toullieil iiu-n , women and children equalling
on their trunks. Of ( ha 4V ) poisons who
\\uio In the hotel on Tuesday , not ID per
cent returned to their rooms. All thn
length of the piomonade dvs An.
glaiM ) carriages , converted for the occasion
Into sleeping apartments , were drawn up
into line. ISathlng machines cost 200 fiancs
apiece. I think the authorities are greatly
to bluim for having all the public gas lights
extinguished , thus leaving the town In total
1 darkness except where the shops were
lighted. 1 nUo L-tontly blame the manage
iimnt of the ( iiait'l hotel , xvhlch made cot the
pllghtest attempt to provide for Its guest ;
during their eviction. Not even a drop ul
\\ater could bo obtained , -and on Wednesday
night , In spite of all remonstrances , all the
lichts In the hotel were turned out , leaving
the corridors in total darkness. 1 managed
to get away from Nice on Thursday , when
the crush wa , If anything , greater than on
Wednesday. "

Mr. Gillian says : "I wasarotisod by a shock
In my room nt San Homo. 1 leaped out of my

safe and sound , except , of course , limy were

the plaster had fallen from the celling and
tlm solid maiblo mantelpiece projected foi-
vyard several Inches. 1 decided to get out of

of the town Is almost wholly destroyed.
There nro ruins of fallen houses In every

"l < rein the peasants that came In during the
day from tlm country , I gathered that the

In extent and results. 1 saw n peasant In the

told mo llint Uassals , a small village
four miles oil , wns In ruins nnd

Another peasant told me that the palish

took tlm train for Vlntlmlglla acalnst the ic-

had oxpcrienccd no damage. Uut these
appearances proved fallacious , for our
train was tlm last one that got through the

They were out for two hours. The speech

It's elfeet was dulled trom the fact that tlm

alto ldo.1 In the minds ot prominent lawyers
and ofllclals about the oxnct moaning ot this
law that none worth quoting will talk foi
publication. All admit that the letter niul
spit It of Urn law are both so broad that they
may make It very oppressive or may make It
a blessing. Uosldcs this , lawyers of wel
known abilttvin this city do not care to gn
on iccord concerning this law , ns they have
not yet been retained , and do
not , as onu expressed himself to

to bo retaincd on either or both s'des. ' There
seems to bo nn equal division of opinion on
tlm proposition that tlm lallroad companies
Intend to get all tlm oppressive construction
placed upon tlm law possible , so as to aecol-
uratu the work of having It repealed , as they
consider It , as people do , but an experi
ment at bust. It Is generally believed that
tlm tendency will bo toward higher tariffs for
both freleht nnd passenger traffic. This will
be necessary on short hauls to make up the
equalization ot reduction or raise In long
hauls. In soum Instances tlm roads will
equalize by i educed short hauls , and In
others by an Incieaso ot long hauls , An ef
fort will bo made to prohibit excursion rates
on all occasions , should tlm law bo construed
to permit them only for "national occasions , "
ns announced by Senator Cnllont the other
day , In answering n question conccinlng
tales to this city during tlm national drill
next May. It is held that It would bo mani
festly unjust to give reduced rates for ex
cursions on long trips , which only the well-
to-do can afford to nationlze , and prohibit
them on small excursions. Should excursion
rates bo refused It will tend .largely to make
the bill unpopular. It has been practically
determined that passes will be Issued tlm
same as usual , except to law makei s. When
the cominissioueis are appointed it is said
tlmy will consume consldeiablu time In cxec-

struction of the law , and till they do so no
