Communication la still obtainable with the

The bill was passed without further com
ment. The house failed to concur in the senate's
action, preferring to let the matter go un
til Monday to obtain more comprehensive
details of the disaster.
The United States government Is willing
and anxious to do anything within its
power to aid the survivors of the terrible
calamity on the Island of Martinique. The
difficulty la to ascertain Just what can be
done and the extent of the needs. Then,
too, there are limitations upon the power
of the executive to proceed In such mat
ters. Secretary Moody and Secretary Hay have
been deeply Interested in the subject and
while the former already has sent to the
commandant at San Juan authorization to
dispatch the United States steamer Po
tomac to Martinique In bis discretion, Sec
retary Hay has empowered Assistant Sec
retary Hill with the duty of conferring
with the Navy department to devise other
plans of relief. Potomac ta nothing more
than a large sea-going tug of very limited
carrying capacity, either of passengers or
freight. About the only useful purpose It
would serve. In the opinion of the naval
officers, Is to make a quick trip to Mar
tinique or to the nearest approachr.blo
point and ascertain from personal Inspec
tion the precise needs of the survivors,
which may afterward be satisfied by sup
plies dispatched on merchant vessels.
News also is awaited from Cincinnati,

Captain McLean reports that the normal

Captain McLean of Cincinnati has re
ported to the Navy department the arrival
of that ship at San Domingo this morning.
It Is possible that If the political situation
on the Island warrants it the ship will be
sent over to Martlnque to afford aid to the
aurvlvors of the catastrophe.
The secretary of the navy found, after
consulting with Assistant Secretary Hill,
that it would be safe to take Cincinnati
away fromSan Domingo. The reason for
this belief was the following cablegram
from Consul Maxwell at San Domingo City:
"The situation In San Domingo is im

been announced at the seaports and for the

VAST RICHES ARE LAID WASTE
Northwestern Realon of Guatemala Is
Reduced to Rain by the Re.
SALT LAKE, May 10. In a letter to the
president of the Mormon church, dated
April 23, from Paul Henning, elder and
representative of the church In Guatemala,
further details are given of the disastrous
earthquakes In that country. Mr. Hennlog
The whole northwestern region, one of
the richest in Central America, la In ruins.
On the evening of April 18 about 20 min
utes after 8 o'clock the first shock was
felt.. This lasted from thirty to forty sec
onds and caused the wildest panic. There
was no loss of life In Guatemala City, and
the property dmae was less than at first
feared, though walla were cracked all over
the city and many old houses were tum
bled In ruins. Ever since then the shocks
have continued with more or less violence.
The worst damage was done In the City of
Quexaltenango, the second largest In the
country. Here It la estimated that from
6, woo to t.OoO people were killed.
At the time of the first shock a violent
thunder and rain storm was raging. The
electric lighting plant of the city had been
disabled, and when the ' people, panic
stricken by the rumbling and shaking of
the earthquake, rushed from their houses,
it was only to meet death. Stumbling and
falling. In the narrow, winding streets .in
total darkness, save when the lightning
lit up the crumbling city with an unearthly
glare, the people died by thousands under
the falling walls, while other thousands
were caught like rats only to die of suf
focation or drowning.
The quaking and rain kept up continually
for three days. This made It almost lm
possible to do effective relief work, and as
a consequence, now that the hot weather
again prevails, the stench from the thou
sands of bodies burled In the ruins Is un
bearable, and fears are entertained of an
epidemic. Hundreds of bodies probably
never will be recoverd.

RAMSEY EXPLAINS TROUBLE
Wabash Haa JJo Intention to Deprive
Colorado Road of St. I.oula
BT. LOUIS. May 10. President Joseph
Ramsey, Jr., of the Wabash, after a con
sultation with bis general counsel, Colonel
Blodgett, hae given out an official state
ment in respect to the reported shutting
out ot the Colorado road from the use ot
Wabash terminal facilities. He said:
The statement that the Wabash company
hss tied Up the traffic of the Colorado and
shut that road off at Forsyth Junction,
thereby violating the trackage contract. Is
without foundation In fact.
The Colorado road is running all of Its
trains and rocelvlng and handling traffic
and cars to and from other connections In
Mill Creek over the Wabash tracks, and
there la no intention on the part of the
Wabash to prevent them from doing so.
The Wabash has simply declined to con
tinue to handle and switch the Colorado
cars In the Wabash company's own yards
and on Ha own tracks, outside of the
tracks, sidetracks and ngnt-of-way cov
ered by the contract. We have no desire
to interfere, with the Colorado company's
traffic, but are forced on account of the
crowded condition of our own yards, and
In order to take care of the Wabash com
pany's Interest, to restrict the use of our
yards and facilities outside of the right-of-way,
for our own traffic. This Is all there
is to it.
As far as the Rock Island Is concerned
that company has not been taken Into con
sideration. Notice was served on the Colo
rado road over a month ago to the effect
that we would cease to do business for
that company In our yards after May 1 if
they did not pay for the services performed
lor tnem nuring tne positive or six montns,
In referring to President Ramey's state
ment, George S. Sands, president and gen
eral manager of tbe St. Louis, Kansas City
4V Colorado road, cited a decision of the
supreme court, decreeing that tbe Colorado
bad a right to the use ot the Wabaeh
tracks, the terminal facilities and all other
agents and employes for switching between
Forsyth Junction snd Eighteenth street.
. "Our contract with the Wabash people,"
said Mr. Sands, "Is a yearly one, and we
have paid up regularly. The last payment
for 1901 was made December 31, 1901.
"The Terminal association notified tbe
Missouri Pacific some time ago that it
would not handle freight for our road.

FIGHT ON SPECIAL EMBASSY
Bailey Protest Against Sending Delegate
to King Edward's Coronation.
QUESTIONS AUTHORITY OF PRESIDENT
Hoar and gpooner Aaree with Prin
ciple, bnt Persnade Traaa to
Withdraw Amendment as
Matter of Conciliation.
WASHINGTON. Msy 10. A lively debate
occurred In the senate today upon an
smendment to an army appropriation bill
offered by Mr. Bailey ot Texas, providing
that no part of the appropriations by the
measure should be used In defraying the
expenses of the special embassy to the
coronation of 1lng Edward VII of Eng
land. Mr. Dalley contended that the I'nlted
States should not send a special ambassador
to the coronation of England's king or to
the coronstlon of any ruler, when the coun
try thus honored did not extend a like
courtesy to the I'nlted States on the in
auguration of a prealdent.
After considerable discussion the amend
ment was withdrawn and the bill passed.
Subsequently Mr. Bailey offered a resolution
which will be discussed later, covering the
point made In his amendment.
To Aid Martinique offerers.
A bill authorised by Mr. Fairbanks of In
diana, appropriating $100,000 to aid the
sufferers of the Martinique Island disaster
A bill for the sale of sites for Industrial
plants In the Indian Territory was passed.
In connection with the bill Mr, Bailey of
Texas regretted that It vested authority In
the secretary of the Interior, "for," said he.
"If there is an officer of the government
who does not know anything about the In
dian Territory, it la the secretary of the

Courtesy Not Reciprocal.
"If It be true that we have sent em
hassles to the coronation of European
rulers I ask if special embassies ever have
been sent to the Inauguration of tbe presl
dent of the United States? Are they en
titled at our hand to what ' they do not
give to us?
"What I protest against," said the Texas
senator, "Is this: That the greatest re
nubile In the world shall perform for a
monarchy what monarchies do not perform
It wss pointed out by Mr. Lodge tbst the
no act of tbe president to send a special
agent waa established 'thoroughly by prac
tlce. It was clear that, be had such au
The president had appointed a special
ambassador to the coronation of the king
of Spain. There had been other cases of
ths appointment ot similar representatives
of the government.
Mr. Hoar said he sympathized with the
statement that the I'nlted States should
not pav a tribute to any nation, which
that natlsn did not pay to us. That argu
ment, he thought, was unanswerable. But
In this Instance the special embassy had
been appointed, and If any obstacle now
were laid In the way of It that action could
be considered as an affront.
Withdraws His Amendment.
Mr. Spooner ot Wisconsin, while he felt
the president had no authority to send an
ambassador to any foreign country without
the consent ot the senate, thought It would
be a mistake to adopt the proposed amend
A vote was taken on the amendment,
which resulted 15 to 26 Leas than a quo
Mr. Bailey then withdrew the amendment
and the bill was passed. Mr. Bailey then
offered the following resolution:
That It is contrary to' the policy of the
United States to accredit to any forelan
government any ambassador, minister or
otner nipiomatic nmcer or agent to especi
