WHAT THE SEARCH PARTY FOUND.
CHARRED BONES AND'-BUTTONS
\ WASHINGTON, February 9. A report from Chihuahua states that nothing but charred bones and buttons were found by the rescue party, which, by the aid of oxygen helmets and pulniotors, succeeded in penetrating the Cumbra tunnel as far as tho locomotive and first two cars of tho passenger train.. The remains are supposed to be those of the fireman and engineer of the ill-fated train. It is now believed that every one of the 50 or more passengers, including the crew, are dead. Whether the train hurried into the tunnel to escape capture by Castillo's bandits, or was, sent headlong to ■destruction by the bandits, may never be known.
