These alternating spaces and partitions

New Yobk, July 4. A dispatch to the
Herald from Berlin says: Prince Herbert
Bismarck's visit to Travemunde is eager
ly discussed. His enemies say that the
kaiser refused to receive him. The
Klein Journal, which pretends to have
special court information, says the audi
ence was prolonged : that Princi Bis
marck refused the Washington embassy,
for private reasons, but said he would be
willing to accept the London embassy.
The truth is that the audience took
place behind closed doors and the kaie"r

Washington, July C The order for
the enlistment of ten new regiments ol
infantry was isFiied today by the secre
tary of war. Daily instruction of both of
ficers and men will be a special feature.
Applicants for commissionf, except of
ficers of the regular army, will be re
quired to pass satisfactory examinations,
and must have had service during the
Spanish-American war. Enlistments
will be made for the period ending June
30, l'JOl, uiiIcbs sooner discharged. Ex
cept in special case", only unmarried
men will be enlisted for these regiments.
Regiments will be enlisted accordiug to
the provisions of the act of March 2, 18!W,

Among the districts for recruiting the
designated regiments are the following:
Thirty-fourth regiment rort l.ogan,

Vancouver Barracks Will Probably Be
One ol the Recruiting Points.
Washington, July 3. The war de
paitment calculates that the trip fiom
Manila to San Francisco by transport
takes just thirty days, which should get
the Second Oregon regiment there July
14. No record Is kept at the depart
ment of arrivals of transports at
The call for the 10,000 additional vol
untoers for service in the Philippines
will not be made as was the call of over
a year ago, by etates, but certain points
have been selected by the war depart
ment at which the regulars will be re
cruited. The names of these place sare
not yet published, but are supposed to
be the largest and most convenient mil
tary stations spread all over the country.
Vancouver barracks is very likely one
point, as it is highly favored by army
It is certain that some of the ofllcers
will be chosen from among the officers
of the Second Oregon regiment, as those
who have seen active service are to be
given the preference. It is likely that
what officers of tho Second Oregon are
chosen will be assigned to the regiment
raised at Vancouver barracks.
Brigadier-General Harrison Gray Otis,
in an interview today, said that it will
require a force of 50,000 men successfully
to terminate the rebellion in the Philip
pines, and that evec then it cannot he
accomplished before the end of the next
dry season, which ends in April of next
ar. He savs that our force in the
islands now can successfully cope with
the insurgents in battle, but a larger
force is needed for garrison duty to hold
captured ground. Speaking of the
soldiers who have fought against the
Filipinos, he said: "Better soldiers
never lilted a musket. They are the
best ever went in battle."
Sickness and Death May Follow Sub
siding of Waters Flooded District
lias a Length of 500 Miles and Is
so Miles Wide Telegraph Poles
Hoi,HTON, Tex., July 5. A correspond
ent has just returned from a eoyaje
through the hViod district. The hail has
not been told of the havoc wrought. The
disaster id so appalling that description
is not possible. After tins flood will
ome sickness undoubtedly. What a
week ago wa9 the fairest part of Texas is
now almost a God-foreaken wilderness.
The waters of the Brazos have for six
days covered its valley to a depth of
from six to thirty feet. Whore a week
ago there were on every hand fields of
cotton and corn and thousands of aeies
of watermelons and contalonpes, today
there is slimy mud over all the vegeta
tion, the carcasees of cows, muljs, pigs,
dous and cats, mayhap, humans, for
ninny are missing.
Our party left Bryan at uirije yet-
terday morning, going to NuVieoto bot
toms, and to a point about three miles
from Millican. Everything is undir
water from two to seventeen feet. I.
looked on all sides like a great lake and
the water was so high that for a vast area
it completely submerged the telegraph
and telephone poles along the line. In
truth, portions of the bottoms are even
now a perfect sea, extending four or five
miles wide at certain points.
All the planters slated that the out-
shlu world has no conception of the floods
or Iowa incurred by the destruction of
crops, stock and buildings. Nearly every
nlanter has built boats and sent tnem
through the flooded districts to render
asslstaiie-e to the people, and if possible
save some of their drowning stock. The
fl wd district has a length of over ."-CO j
miles, a breadth of probably fifty miles, j
nd in all this vast space damage incal
culable has been done.
The loss to life will never bo fully
known. To show the damace done, the
following estimates have been made by
men who are in a poeitiou to know : Lives
lost, from 100 to SIX); loss to farmers, in
cluding crops as well as livestock, from
7,000,000 to $13,000,000; to railroads and
country bridges, I2.000.COO to $4,000,000.
These estimates are taken on the whole
One Claim Furnished All the Treasure
Eleven Horses Could Carry Klon
dike Cleanup Is Coming.
San Francisco, July 5. A special
from Seattle says : Gold dust was pour
ing Into Dawson when the Humboldt's
passengers left. They allege that on the
morning of June 20 a pne'e train of
twenty horses, each animal carrying "00
bounds of gold du9t, arrived from Eldor
ado creek. There were two tons of it,
worth fully $1000,000. It is said that
e'even of the horses were weighted down
with dust from oue claim.
Another Dawson party" baa arrived
from the north today on tho Dirigo.
Joseph Putrau and Henry Berry had
jointly 700 pounds of dust. Aside from
this, no ono man had to exceed fifty
pounds. The total on the vessel was
about $150,000. Tho City of Topeka is
close behind the Dirigo with considerable
more treasure.
Richard Fmuions, J. Ostium and O. W.
Jackson sought to reach the Copper river
country from Dawson and came near
Btarvlng to death. They were making
the journey for the North American
Transportation & Trading Company.
Their Indian guides deserted, and the
men were left for ten days. The men
have reached Dawson from Copper river
without gold. They say they explored
the rivers as far north as Helisland, in
the Arctic ocean, but found nothing.
A copper vein, outcropping) of which
have been traced a distance of sixteen
miles' has been located at Williams
point by a Sau Francieco syndicate.
People Hang in Trees Three Days:
Then Fall From Exhaustion.
St. Lofis, July ft A special to the
Post Dispatch trom Dalla", Texas, says:
At 11 a. in. today a short dispatch was
re '.eived from a lineman at Dewey, just
across the Brazos river from Sealey. It
read :
"River falling slowly tince 3 o'clock
yesterday afternoon. Conditions here
Bre terrible. Everything in the country
is swept away. A laruo number of lives
lost in the bottom, and it looks like
starvation for those left. Situation is
not exaggerated. It will bo several days
before line repairs can be made with
anything like system."
This telegram was received over a wire
spliced from tho Missouri, Kansas &
Texas Railway and Postal ' Telegraph
Company's lines, and was the first that
had been working into Sealoy and Dewey
for three days. Tho wire only worked
five minutes and was then loit. Efforts
to connect it since have failed. Shortly
after this information was received by
wire, Deputy SherilFSwarenigeratSealey
said over tho long-distance telephone:
"There is no improvement in this sec
tion of the flood district. If anything.
the situation is growing worse. No re
lief boats havo yet reached here from
Houston or Galveston. Sealey md the
neighboring tonus have about exhausted
tneir resources lor relief. Another negro
family wnseeen from here drowning, cut
off from laud about two miles, this morn
ing. Several lives havo been lost
last nu'tit among tho lefugees on the
mound near Old San Filipe. A number
of negroes fell into tho water from the
tree tops from sheer exhaustion, after
hanging three days and nights.
"A rumor is current here of an awful
disaster near Richmond, below here in
Fort Bend country. As we are cut off
from all that southern section, we can
not tell definitely what has happened,
but the situation naturally must be as
bad thore, if not worse."

They Express Widely Different Views of
the Philippine Islands.
CmcAcn, July 5. A special to the
Tribune from Marysviile, Mo., eays:
Ex-Scnator Peffer, of Kansas, was the
principal speaker at the Fourth of July
celebration in Marysvi'le. He said In
his address :
"Scarcaly had the smoke 'of battle be
tween Americans and Spaniards blown
from over Manila, when that part of the
earth began to show signs of American
prosperity aud order. Everything went
along smoothly until some of our soldiers
were fired upon by certain ruffians. It
immediately became our government's
duly to defend the lives of our soldiers
and the honor of our country, and to
secure and preserve peace and order.
"When that tias been doue we can
find time to dispute among ourselves
about minor questions of government
but not before. Those who oppose this
policy tell us that we are violating the
principles of the declaration of inde
pendence by forcing our government
upon people ithout their consent.
Will you opun tho doors of our prisons
and turn out all the men who are in
carcerated there ai;:einst their consent?
This country originally belonged to the
Indians. Did the white man permit
tho Indians to burn und kill? To re
strain him would be to govern him with
out his c liisent.
"We were dealing directly with Spain,
and when tho Spanish ti ;et was sunk
and Manila captured, the Philippines
camo into our control under tho inter
national code, ami we came dircct'y re
sponsible for them and th a-!s of their
inhabit ints in the eyes of the world.
ihey are e-ura to eli3pose of m much as
any territory of this nation, and if the
administration refused to put clown thai
rebellion it would be as derelict in its
duty as it would he if it failed to put
down a rebellion in Missouri, or Kansas,
or Texas.
Senator Jones' Opinion.
New Yoiik, July 5. Senator Jones.
Nevada, Is quoted in an interview as lol
lows :
"The Democrats certainly will make a
strong fight against trusts in the next
presidential campaign. Just how the
subjpct should be treated, I will confess
I do not know at present. It Is a difficult
problem. It is easy enough to shout
down with the trusts, but what are you
going to do about it?
"Tak.i the one that is most often made
the target the sn, trust. You g') to
the members and they say : 'Yes we own
all the sugar refineries; we are incorpo
rated according to law.' Now will we
pass a law that a oncern shall own onlv
so much proherly, or what shall we do?
What difference would it make to us if
there were a thousand independent re
fineries and as many middle-men?"
'Djea the anti-trust idea for a demo
cratic campaign issue meau that Bryan
will be the candidate?"
"Certainly. It will be Bryan and Mc
Kinley over again. That does not mean
that the silver question will be shelved,
either. It will be rather overshadowed
by the anti-monopoly movement. There
are many people who will never under
stand the currency question, and in the
face of semblance of prosperity the
silver issue may be submerged for a time.
It will not stay down, however."
"How is the Philippine situation re
garded in the West?"
"In California, where all the troops
have been shipped, the people have made
delicious and wholesome

money out of it, and mer want the Phil
ippines. I cannot see what any one else
can want of them. I th'n'e the question

President Scburman, of the Philippine
Commission, Makes a Very En
couraging Report to Washington.
New York, July li. A special to the
Herald from Washington says: The
departureof President Schurman, of the
Philippine commission, will leave at
Manila three members of the commis
sion Major-General Otis, Professor
Worcester and Colonel Denby. It will
be the duty of the Inst two named to
coniinno the work of establishing home
rule within the lines held by the ad
ministration troops, iu tho hope that the
example will be followed by tho Filipinos
outside of tho lines, and show then', the
beneficent purposes of this government.
Pr.f. Worcester and Col. Denby will
also aid Gen. Otis iu the conduct of any
peace negotiations which m.'.y foliow fu
ture operations ol the American troops.. .
Mr. Schunnan's dispatch is on the
whole very encouraging, and the au
thorities are very much gratified at the .
conditions be reports having found at
the points visited. It is evident from
what the officials say that Mr. Schur
man believes the suppression of Aguin
aldo's insurrection mean; the establish
ment of pence throughout tho archipel. -ago.
He is confident that many cf ttie
people throughout the southern islands
do not openly express themselves In
favor of an American protectorate sole
ly because of the fear of Aguinaldo mid
his Tagal army.
Mr. Schurman speaks well of the
sultan of Sulu, and it is evident that he
feols that there is no danger of trouble
from him in case the United States ob
serves tho treaties which exist between
him and the Spanish government. Mr.
Schurman makes a number of recom
mendations regarding home rule for
some of tho southern islands, and that
they will probably be adopted by tho
