LONDON- TIMES-SEW YORK TIMES Special Cablegram. Copyright, iso-4. THE NEW YOKK TIMES. TANGIER, Morocco, May have received letters from Mr. Perdicoris and the brigand Kaisuli. Mr. Perdlcaris states that.he and Mr. Varley are well -treated, while Raisuli assures me that he is doing everything possible to his prisoners comforta- ble. Mr. Perdicaris -XVe are both in good health. Raisuli his best for us. It is very encour- aging to know that you and other are acting- on our behalf." I do not know what demands Raisuli is making, but he asks nothing pe.rson- r.lly of us. ar.d my impression is that he wishes to make it a purely political busi- ness and means that no harm shall come to us." In another letter Mr. Perdicaris that he "and II r. Varley are confined in j one room and only allowed out a short time in the evenings. Mr. Pc-rdicaris's ,pluck is "much ad- mired, lie is elderly and his health is iielica'.e. It is sincerely and universally hoped that the American Government not" treat the outrage with the same npnthy as has been exhibited by Euro- pean powers in regard to similar, occur- r-rnces. American ships were expected before ncvv, and their non-arrival increases the feeling: of insecurity Here. Several peo- ple have received warnings of future out- and until some measures are taken the Europeans -will the- mercy of the tribesmen, police of any kind exist.

W3LKESBARRK, May telegram received at the Sasquehahna Coal Com- pany's office, in tnls city, this evening, states that ten miners were suffocated by gas and sulphur fumes .from-a loco- motive this afternoon in the workings of the Summit Branch Coal Company at Will- iamstown, Dauphin County. The accident was one of the most peculiar in the history of the anthracite mines, and no reason for it can be assigned by the offi- cials. The dead are: Michael Golden, gen- eral inside foreman of the company, .and nine miners and laborers. The tunnel In which the disaster occurred is a mile long, and is used to convey the coal mined in 'the workings -in the Bear Valley to the breaker in the Williams Valley. About 4 o'clock this afternoon Golden and about fifty miners boarded cars which were about to "be hauled 'from Bear Valley to Williamstown. When the journey was half ended some of the men attracted the atten- tion of the engineer, who at once stopped; and it wns found that nearly every man in the party had been overcome by the gas and sulphur which emanated from the stack of the locomotive and floated back over them. Tho engineer at once crowded on all steam possible, and the unconscious men were hurried to the Williamstown end of the tunnel, -lere physicians made every effort to resuscitate them, but aid came too late for Golden and the other victims.

The unit rule was put in force, nnd an overwhelming majority of the del- mako him give in. He said the New Haven Road might discharge him from the Gen- eral Managership, but until then it would' no; yield to the strikers. The condition of the strike to-day. In brief, is as -follows: The New Haven Rail- j road, having lost its old force of about 350 freight handlers from its New York .piers, has substituted the same number of non- union laborers, whom it is boarding on the piers or .transporting to and from_ the piers on carefully guarded tugs. The company has lost-several .hundreds ,-of" firemen oilers -from its.-b9ats aromid possibly as many'a'sfiXUncludlng some from big Sound boats, taut it has .filled their_ places )n and managed to transfer up and down the rivers yesterday many of its freight cars. The striking freight handlers and firemen, having found that they could not get the teamsters to help them, are playing what Mr. Curran calls a.waiting game. Along both waterfronts of the.city many policemen continued to keep guard yester- day. There was no" sign of violence from I the groups of strikers aongregated on all I neighboring corners. All the boats that ar- rived or departed oh the different New Haven Sound lines were loaded or unloaded without difficulty.. After a meeting of strikers at Hudson Hall, in Spring Street, Agent Healy of the Freight Handlers said the order lor a gen- eral strike had been sent out by President Curran. He was sure" it had been sent. He was surprised to hear that Mr. Curran had denied having" sentjt. At the offices of the company it was stated that Mr. Curran had sent the orders, but that the men had re- minutes. An hour after the ar rival at assistance it seemed that the fire. was. almost under control, but shortly after noon it broke out afresh at the cal- umet Club, destroying that structure and moving thence to the--Magnolia Inn Every white church in town, odist. Baptist, Episcopal, Presbyterian, and Catholic, was burned; both .telegraph of- fices, the Cumberland Telephone. Exchange and the Yazoo and Mississippi Valley pas- senger depot. The four banking institu- tions, the Elks Club, the express offices, and Post Office were swept away. The only building of consequenee-direct- Iv exposed to the holocaust which escaped were the Court House and the Fannie J.

"NEW HAVEN, May as'sauit, similar to the ,two. previous ones that have created a' great stir-In. this city, occurred' to-night. A well-dressed unknown young woman was attacked in a dark street by a. man supposed to be a negro. The assault was committed In Car.al Street, near Prospect Street, and not many blocks from the places where the daughter of Prof. Richards ot Yale and Augusta Peterson, the domestic, were attacked. In the assault to-night almost exactly the same methods were employed by the assailant .as marked the other two cases, the man grabbing the; woman from behind, putting his hands over her mouth ami throwing her to the ground: .Her shrill cries were1 heard for blocks around and tho man beco'ining frightened, fled. Detective Dunlap and Policeman Murphy were a fe> blocks away, and hastened to The scene! The woman refused. absolutely to -ive her name or to tell where she lived, and would give no aid to the police, .except to tell which way. the wan went. Two women near by saw the. man run and told a policeman, who caught sight of him and followed him for two blocks. The police- man came back to the scene of the assault a lew minutes later, the man having place where the woman was assault- ed is near the Sheffield Scientific School buildings, and the outcries of the woman attracted hundreds of Yale men, who joined in the hunt for culprit, but without success.
