New York, Sept. 16. Greater
New York and its environments for
several miles in all directions was
visited today by the fiercest wind
and rain storm known hereabouts
in years. The day began with rain
which increased with the wind,
and for about two hoars about mid
day the combined fury of the ele
ments wrought damageon land and
water amounting to many thous
ands of dollars, The gale culmin
ated at noon in a wind velocity of
54 miles an hour. .
Apparently solid sheets of water
drove across the city, drenching ev
ery unfortunate caught without
shelter, and the guage at the weath
er bureau registered 1 '60 inches
precipitation in two hours. I Then
the storm subsided. By the ' mid
dle of the afternoon the . wind - had
dropped to a mere breeze and the
sun broke through the clouds.
: The gale was especially severe at
sea, causing havoo to the ebippipg
down the bay, where many, vessels
were sunk or wre ked. The worst
of the damage was reported from
Staten Island. The entire fleet of
the Staten Island Yacht Club at
anchor was either sunk or wrecked.
The pilot boat Hermit , was driven
ashore and there was a collision be
tween a schooner and a barken tine.
- A tugboat was wrecked in Hell
Gate. . The hurricane burst wth cy
clonic force on the .'center of the
city, loosening the 250-foot spire of
St. Bartholomew s Protestant Epis
copal church in" Madison aveniie."
; The teeple of the South Congre
gational church in Brooklyn also
was loosened. Trees were .torn op
aod the streets of the city were lit
tered wiib Bigns and umbrellas of
unfortunate pedestrians who hap
pened' to be out in the fury of the
si orm.' Telegraph and telephone
wires above ground were broken in
all parts of the Metropolitan district.-...
:' v'V:?;'": . ".
The tugboat James Kay was blown
on Hog? Rock in Hell Gate . and
com pi etely w recked . The captain
and crew saved themselves by swim
ming towards the island. The streets
of Manhattan borough were strewn
with broken signs and other debris.
Scores of plate glass windows along
Broadway were broken, the vicini
ty of the Flatiron building at Twenty-third
street suffering severely in
this respect. ": -" ' ,'.
sIn the Flatiron itself 40 windows
were smashed. Occupants of the
building said they felt the huge
structure sway in the gale and , ma
ny were so badly scared that they
left the building. i '-'
An express wagon was blown ov
er while turning the Flatiron cor
ner and the driver and James Bil
lings, who were crossing the aven
ue, were both seriously hurt. Sev
eral cabs on Fifth avenue were also
blown over. A score of others were
more or lesa injured in this neigh
borhood. ' Arlington, Or., Sept. 17. "Hold
up your hands.'f was the startling
summons to the men in the Arling
ton saloon, run by A. J. Coe, about
12:30 this morning. -.. Intent on va
rious games the seven men had not
noticed the entrance of two masked
robbers. But 14 hands went up
simultaneously and were held stiff
and straight in the air:
The intruders were very method
ical in their actions. First the "21"
game roll was taken. That amount
ed to $160. The "bookmaker's'.'
wheel yielded about $130. The
barkeeper moved over while one of
the bandits took about $25 from the
cash register.
"Open the safe,'.' said the short
man. The bartender hesitated, but
a glance into the muzzle of the gun
held by the tall man was sufficient
and the safe was looted of its con
tents; even checks were taken.
One of the checks was for $45 and
payment will be stopped in the
morning. In all $500 was obtained.
' "Good evening, gentlemen," said
the short man, who seemed to be
the spokesman. Then the pair
backed out through the - rear en
trance, and disappeared. .
London, Sept. I5. The Times is
in receipt of a dispatch from its
correspondent in Sofia that Bulga
ria will not wait longer than sun
rise tomorrow for some satisfactory
information that the powers of Eu
rope, will intercede and save thous
and! ot helpless ones in Macedonia

So intense has become the situa
tion that private citizens in the
Bulgarian capital, when compelled.
to go upon the streets, appear ac.
couteied as soldiers.

houHy and there seems little doubt
that the crisis of war is at hand.

Portland, Sept., 15. The Journ-j
ai Says: A party composed of J.
Crahdall, Wilson A. Pearson 1. and
Timothv Paarson of . Portfandat
Collin Hot Springs last week had
an exciting experience. 1 - J-A f':
' "Last Thursday while one of the
cripples at the springs Was walking
around doing nothing," said Timo
thy Pearson, "he saw a monster
cinnamon bear across the creek.
f he man was a little way from the
camp at the time he saw the , ani
mal and became so excited that he
forgot about having a crutch ..and
actually ran into camp. "'' y:
"Arriving there he told the par
ty what he had seen- and J. Gran
dull, Wilson A. Pearson and myself
took a row boat and began to- eross
tbe stream. We took along several
rifles. : ' ' , - , t-:
"We had rowed about twp-ibirda
of the distance across the . stream
when the bear espied us and Instead
of making away. in the timber, set
out to meet the boat. We were'row
ina at a very fair rate of Speed -and
just as the bear was to get into the
boat the skirl shot suddenly- for
ward. . . -
"A. Pearson who was in one end
got hold of the boat's large chain
and managed in some way to get it
around the animal's body. Anoth
er man looped the painter around
the bear's neck. JEhough he was
struggling with all his : might; we
finally managed to tow the bear in
to camp. We boxed him up and
took him to the springs.- Dur
ing the night he chewed the box in
to several pieces, but in trying to
get away got his chain wound a
round the base of a large tree where
we found Mr. Bear securely tied
next morning.
"After this incident we concluded
that he was entitled to his libertv
and consequently let him go and
amid tbe yells of the crowd be start
ed on a run from Camp. Finding
that he was not gaming very fast
on his pursuers he climbed a large
tree and scrambled up on a high
branch. The women of the party
thought that as we had been feed
ing him for some time we would
never get rid of the animal until be
was sbov so Jailer Jackson, who
happened to be -at . tbe springs,
tumbled Mr. Bear off his perch
with a bullet,
"It was the largest cinnamon
bear I ever saw snd I think it is
the largest ever caught alive . by
