Boti! vessels were sunk. The fate of the crew of the schooner is unknown. The chief officer, second officer, surgeon, one engineer and eight of the crew of the steamer were picked up. 80 far as known these are the only persons out of tile crew and passenger list of <“ghty-six of the Vizcaya and the crew of the unknown schooner that have been saved. It is feared ail the others are lost and that tho list will number up to eighty if not more. Details are meagre. The Vizcaya left New York yesterday afternoon for Havana with nine regular passengers and a crew of seventy-seven. It is thought there were some others on board not on the list. At half-past eight Thursday evening a large four-masted schooner tune in sight and immediately bore down on the steamer, striking on the st.ar-board bunkers, carrying away the bridge aud captains’ cabin, and instantly killed seven inmates. Later both vessels had sun!-: and the passengers and crews were struggling in the water. The steamer was a staunch vessel and Captain Cli nill was one of tile most trusted employes of the line. One of the passengers, not on the regular list was Juan Pedro, a Cuban millionaire and a director in the steamship line. The other passengers on boa'd a- far as learned were M. A. Caivo wife, son and maid; Mr. Peirr and three children, A. Ruiz, ,lo-e Acaibasi, Ramon Alvarezi, .Juan F. Hedm&nsi, Oscar Ulanar, Luigi Pellion. Jo'O Garcia. Surgeon Rico says at the time of the collision he was in the cabin talking to Mrs. Calvo, suddenly carne an awful -hock and the steamer roiled well over on her port. Everybody in the cabin wa' thrown down and immediately a scene of the wildest confusion ensued. Mrs. Cal vo begged mo to save her son and I w. ut up on deck to find him. There a terrible -cene met my eyes. The bridge, deck house and fore rigging were all torn away. There was a great gash in the starboard side just abaft the coal bunkers, and through this the water was rushing. Close by tin- on the star-board beam was a four-ma-ted schooner with her bow-sprit and fore-rigging gone and her beam stove in. Men were running about wildly on our deck shouting all kinds of orders and I remember seeing the crew of the schooner doing the same on their vessel. The next thing I knew the water was washing over our decks. With a wild idea of -axing ourselves several of us clambered up tho port fore-rigging. Down went the steamer and up we climbed. We reached fur the top gallant yard and just then the hull reached bottom. This left ii' just above the surface of the water but each swell dashed over our limbs. Twelve survivers were there. Some of our cit w tried to reach the schooner but she went, to the bottom almost as quickly a-the Vizcaya and as far as we could see there was not a sail in sight. One of the men in the yard -aid while diming the rigging lie had seen a boat lowered from the schooner and seven men gct in and row away but we could not see anything of it, although it was a bright moonlight night. Then, in hope of attracting attention, we cut tarred ropes on the yard and, lighting them, swung them in the air, t ut in vain. All through the long night we clung to that yard, growing colder and -tiff‘*r each hour. Toward daybreak one of the men thought he heard a steamer passing and we all shouted as loud as we could. Then a boat made its appearance and we were taken on board Hie Humboldt. We eould not have lasted much longer.” The collision is inexplicable in view of j the statement of Dr. Rico that the night j was bright moonlight and the sea smooth. A dispatch from Lewes, Delaware, tonight says the tug Hercules arrived this evening and reports that the schooner was the Cornelius Hargraves. Ten men from the Hargraves and seven from the Vizcaya were picked up by the schooner Sarah L. Davis and transferred to tile Hercules. The latter proceeded for the wreck to render assistance but at midnight met the tug Butler which had been to the scene and found both vessels sunk and all hands gone. They picked up the body of a woman. The survivors report nearly a hundred people were clinging to the wreck at one time. The schooner Hargrave- cleared from Lewes oetober 27 with coal for Fall River. Ma—achu- Telegrapher* Arranging to Bult Work on Pr«**i<lentiul Flection Day. New York, Oct. 31.—It is rumored, that the operators of the Western Union !

The men are -aid j to have already organized throughout \ the west, and several well-known operators said this morning that the men in i New York are prepared to go on -trike I at a moment’s notice. The men think j that by going out on a presidential election day they will prevent the company i from getting other operators to take j their places.

It has been | said that the press operators will also go out, but the experienced men -ay that i- ' not likely. The objects of the strike are j to make the company pay by the hour, instead of by the day, and to establish the j claim of the women operators that they should receive the saute pay a- the men. | The hour system of payment would increase the salaric' of the good men and J lower those of the poor ones.

London, Oct.. 31.—There ha- arrived j in thi- city a young Russian, named j Kelcho-ky, who made his escape from Siberia after having been imprisoned in that country for fourteen year-. When he was but eighteen year* of ace he wa- ; arrested in Vitna on suspicion of having ! revolutionary document- in hi- posses- I sion, and of being identified with a ! conspiracy of the time. Many hardships aud peril- attended his flight from Siberia. Fear that by so doing he may endanger the safety of comrade- left behind will restrain Kelcho-ky from at present publishing Iii- narrative of his exile and escape. Ho represents the exile- a- 'deriving much encouragement from the expressions of sympathy with them in their -ad fate by the people cf the United States, arid asserts that tin* Russian authorities an* much disturbed by tb>* same cause. The O'Hciiil Missnujer. of St. Petersburg, stated recently that the reports circulating iii Russia to the effect that American- and others were severely commenting on the management of Rh— sian prison- were mere invention- "f the nihilist-. According to M. Kelcho-ky two exiles, named respectively Pesheke-roy and Makarento. who were arrested at Ou-hour. have been sentenced to solitary confinement, pending official investigation. The men ar** charged with having in their keeping certain elipping-from American newspapers bearing upon th** feeling existing in that country because of the alleged cruel treatment by Russia of hei lea prisoners in S I ' ria.

This has been an extraordinary campaign. When it began the democratic leaders were overflowing with confidence. They boasted that their majority would be at least one hundred. This confidence only rested on altogether flmsy grounds. There were twenty-six district- in the south in which the republican party had a clear majority of from one to ten thousand; bul over the electorial machinery the democracy held absolute control. From each of these di'trict- the democratic managers expected to return democratic congressmen by a process which can only be properly described a- a downright steal. Recent gerrymander- in which Kentucky, Tennessee, Maryland and Indiana were relied upon a- a second -ource of illicit gain. In the-e -tate- the boundary lines of nineteen districts had been so altered as to wipe out republican majorities and create democratic majorities in their stead. Thus from forty-five districts properly republican our opponents calculate to extract by theft and sharp practice forty-five democratic representative-. Their -(heme rendered voting superfluous and the popular will impotent. These were the chief Nature- of their campaign. Supplementary to then, however, wa- another not less .nfamous. It was a grand conspiracy to raise the values of all the neces-arie- of life and to charge that inflation to the new republican tariff bill. In order to enjoy the spoils of office they undertook to create a condition of the market whereby the people would uo -hainelessly -windled out of hundred- of thousand- of dollar-. Thi- conspiracy ha- failed and it' failure has doomed the democratic party to defeat in next Tuesday- elections. The manufacturers and merchant- of America were too wise and too honest for the -ake of tem-dorary gain- to allow them-elve- to serve as the tool of th*- democratic party in inflicting upon the people such a coilosal outrage. It - the reaction against thi-conspiracy that has confirmed to the republican party its title to public confidence. The people have found that the democracy, through its various agent-on the stum and in the public press, wa-lying to them about the new tariff bill, it- provision- and it- effects, and they have been studying the bill for ihem-selve-. They have found that tho prin- I ciples which governed it- construction i are those, and those only, to winch th*; country i- indebted for the unparalleled prosperity it ha- enjoyed since the war. They have found that the new law simply extends these principles to industries which they have not heretofore applied, withdrawing from the dutiable list practically everything that we ( annot largely produce with our own resource-. The j people have discovered that the new law ; i* not going to ' arise a rise of prices or any bii'ine-s disturbance and they perceive that it is going to create larger and better markets for our farmers to build up many industries to give emp’eyment to thousands of workmen now idle or insufficiently occupied and to maintain th** present high rate of American wages. We urge the people to consider carefully the significance of a vote next Tuesday in favor of a democratic candidate for emigre-- above everything else, it will mean that the man who cast- it wishes SPORTING NEWS.
