The steamer Palena, which arrived today
from southern ports, brings the news that
the town ' of Retalbulen, situated at the
foot of Mount Tacona, in Guatemala, has
been burled under a mass of lava, atones
and ashes thrown from the volcanic crater
and probably 1,000 of Its people have per
ished. The volcano Is about twenty-five miles
from Cbampanlco, and near the town of
Tapachulo. which. It la believed, also suf
fered severely. The eruption occurred sev
eral days before Palena arrived at Cham
paulco. The vessel's officers were Informed
by the agent of the Pacific Steam Naviga
tion company at that place that the vol
cano had shown signs of the Impending
eruption for several days previous to the
outbreak. In fact, Mount Tacona had been
restless ever sines the great earthquake of
April 18, which destroyed the city of Qu
altenango. For weeks a black pall of
smoke hung over its summit, and the
glare from the crater frequently Illumi
nated the sky. ' t

Many of the Inhabitants of Retalbulen
fled from their homea to places of ssfety
and these escaped frightful deaths. When
the eruption at last broke forth in its full
fury showers of lava, ashes and stones
were ejected and covered the country for
miles around. The Bay of Champanlco
was a mass of floating pumice and ashes.
No details were obtainable by the offloers
of Palena, but the loss of life was esti

The same ateamer brought a letter to
Balfour, Guthrie 4- Co., agents of the Pa

stated that since the earthquake of April
18 shocks had been of almost dally occur

The volcano of Santa Maria la also said

IRRIGATION BILL COMES THIS WEEK
Bonders Inform Department Keel of
Battleship Mebraaka Is to Be Laid
at Seattle on the Motion's
WASHINGTON, June 7. (Special Tele
gram.) Senator Dietrich, who has been
one of the most active supporters ot the
sugar producers ot the United States as
against the importers of sugar, when asked
today If the exponents of native sugars
would enter a caucus of the senate to de
cide the question ot Cuban reciprocity, said
that they would gladly enter a conference
to talk over the questions upon which the
republican party in the senate Is divided
but he doubted whether the representa
tives of the producing Interests would be
bound by the action of a caucus at this time.
Senator Dietrich has Introduced two bills
on Cuban reciprocity, one to secure reci
procity with Cuba by covering back Into
the Cuban treasury en average of 25 per
cent of the moneys which the United States
would collect from Imports from Cuba.
This was what was done for Porto Rico and
what the Philippine civil government bill
which recently passed the senate provides.
The other bill was to add to the raw suRar
schedule the amount of the differential
which is a special protection of refiners
of sugar, then in addition the senator by
his bill provides for 25 per cent reduction
to Cuba on all its products. The object of
transferring the differential to raw sugar,
according to Senator Dietrich, Is that the
differential Is only a protection to the sugar
trust, which is only an importers' trust
and practically employe no American labor
and gives It a monopoly for dictating the
purchasing and selling price ot sugar which
comes to the United States and enables It
to collect from the American people from
a half to three-fourths of a cent profit on
every pound of sugar that is consumed In
the United States. By making the conces
sion to refined sugar, according to Senator
Dietrich's Idea, our revenues would be
reduced materially, but on the other hand,
transferring the differential to raw sugar,
refined sugar from other countries could
be brought in at the same price as the
highest grade of raw sugar now brought
In under the existing tariff. Consequently
Instead of bringing Into the United States
the lowest grade of raw sugars, the high
est grade of refined sugars would be brought
and the power of the sugar trust weakened
Just that much. Senator Dietrich stated
tonight that bis bill was not only satis
factory to the president, but waa entirely
acceptable to the producers of sugar In tbe
United States, and he confidently be
lieved that from sixteen to twenty senators
could be depended upon to vote for bis
proposition or a rebate proposition as
against a reclproclty.bin of 20 per cent
which the representatives of the sugar
trust are urging.
The week closes with no material con
cessions made on either side and it looks
now as it it might be a stern fight be
tween the beet sugar and Sugar trust
forces, the only hope being tor a confer
ence of republican senators where the
different propositions may be talked over
and some' compromise bill agreed upon.
Irrigation Bill Thursday.
The Irrigation bill, In which the people
of the west are so vitally interested, will
in all probabilities be reached next Thurs
day, the understanding being that the Pa
cific cable bill will occupy the attention
of the house next Tuesday and Wednesday.
It is expected that Mr. Mondell of Wyom
ing, who has been one of the most active
forces in favor of an irrigation measure,
will control the time tor the friends of the
measure, while Judge Ray of New York,
who filed a minority report, will probably
direct the opposition. From a careful and
conservative canvass of the house It seems
safe to assume that the bill will pass by
a large majority, although four months ago
this would have been impossible. Among
those who will apeak In favor of the measure
are Terrell and Powers ot Massachusetts,
Llttlefleld of Maine, Cooper ot Wisconsin,
Tawney of Minnesota and Sperry of Con
necticut. From the south there will be
Underwood of Alabama and Bellamy ot
Georgia, while there is a flood of requests
from men who represent the west, demand
ing time in which to tell their story.
Representative Hepburn left today for
Iowa, going direct to Clarlnda, his home,
which he expects to reach Monday morn
ing. Monday evening he will leave for
Crenton to be in attendance upon his dis
trict convention, which meets in that city
next Tuesday. Colonel Hepburn will not
return to Washington until Friday, too
late, however, to take a hand in the Pa
cific cable fight, which he has bitterly op
posed since the Corliss bill was Intro
duced. The Navy department has been Informed
by Moran Bros, at Seattle, Wash., that
they will lay the keel of the big battleship
Nebraska on tbe Fourth of July. The
builders Informed the department that work
at their yards has lagged a little of late
owing to tbe prevalence of a small strike
and also because of delay In delivery of
ship fittings, but they state that progress
on the big vessels being built by them is
Seven Days on Philippine Bill.
A close friend of Speaker Henderson
etates tonight that the Philippine civil
government bill would be brought into the
house on June 18 and seven days' debate
would be allowed on the measure, which
would bring a vote on June 25. In the
meantime the general deficiency bill will
be reported and out ot the way, so that
nothing will Interfere with an adjourn
ment of congress except tbe Cuban reci
procity measure and this. It is believed,
will be satisfactorily settled by the time
congress is ready to adjourn.

charge of unbecoming behavior in public,
and that no further action be taken in the
case or isavni CHdet James C. Kress, u,

M. C. Admiral Crownlnnhield has dinar,.
proved the opinion and recommendation of
tne court or inquiry, wnere it is adverse to
tne omcers, on the ground that the evl
dence is not sufficient.
There will be no further proceedings In
this case, according to the present Intention
of the officials. The grounds upon which
Admiral ' Crownlnshtcld disapproved the
finding, namely, the Insufficiency of evi
dence, would not, it is believed, give any
cause tor offense to tbe Italian government.
The admiral doea not find that the Italian
court erred, but he does find that, situated
as the Chicago is. It Is not possible to se
cure tbe evidence which would Justify the
assembling of a court-martial.
C0LLISI0N QUIRES MANY
Motor Car Crashes Into Engine and
,' Two Persons Are Fatally
ST. LOUIS, Mo., June 7. Twenty-flve
persons were today injured, two of them
fatally, li a collision betwen a car of tbe
Clayton branch of tbe Suburban Electric
line and engine No. 265 of tbe Missouri
Pacific at tbe surface crossing at Brent
wood, St. Louis county.
The two men fataly Injured are:
WILUAM LAYZEN, motorman of tbe
GEORGE GIBBONS, a laborer, who shared
tbe front platform with Layzen when tbe
The fireman and engineer of tbe railroad
train were both injured and removed to
the Missouri Pacific hospital for treatment
Almost everyone of those In tbe car was
cut by fljlng glasa or thrown against a
door, window or seat in such a manner as
to sustain painful Injuries. Tbe injuries
of a . majority of the passengers were
slight, however, and they hastily set about
to rercue the less fortunate.
There were no physicians at hand when
the collision occurred and it was twenty
minutes, passengers say. before the In
jured received medical attention. A ma
jority of tbe victims were able to go In
search ot doctors themselves. Residents
of Brentwood carried the others to con
venient houses or placed them on neigh
boring lawns until physicians arrived.
Inability to control the electrlo car,
which ran. into and derailed the engine,
seems to have been the cause of the acci
dent. List of Injured.
A correct list of injured, aa far as ob
tained, is aa follows:
W. D. Ewing, engineer, Emerson, Mo.,
Joseph McClure, fireman, S. Louis avenue,
left arm sprained.
