most of the time. It is said that no
American sii ca the time Daniel
Webster paid his memorable visit
to the Euglish capital has had as
many honors showered upon him
or been as favorably received.
"This is due largely to the fact
that Mr. Bryan may bs the next
president of the United S ates,

Cartagena,. Spain,. Aug. 5. A
terrible . marine disaster . occurred
last evening off Cape Palos. The
Italian steamship Sirio, from Genoa
for Barcelona. Cadiz, Montevideo
and Buenos Ayres with about 800
passengers on board, was wrecked
off Hormigas .Island. Three hun

Italians and Spaniards, were drown

committed suicide. The remainder
of the passengers and the officers
and crew got away in the ship's
boats. A number of fishermen who

The Madrid correspondent of the
Daily Telegraph describes the Sirio
disaster as one of the worst on
record. The Italian 'emigrants,
with knives -in their hands, and
without regard Li women or chil

tality for the possession of lifebuoys
and boats. Many were killed or
wounded . including eeveral mem
bers of the crew who were attacked
by the emigrants.
When the captain saw that the
vessel wa? lost and that the emi

committed suicide by shooting with
a revolver. The other officers then
lost their beads and there was no
bedy to direct the work of rescue.

of the situation. They completely

numbers and this in spite of the of

Dallas, Ore , Aug. 1. The pre
liminary trial of j. H. Flower for
alleged assault on the 7-year-old
daughter of James Ross. wa3 held
before Justice Holnian. . The: evl
dence was not considered sufficient
to bold the prisoner and he was
discharged, after which he disap

started , for his house, but Sheriff
Grant prevailed on the leaders to
withhold their action until mid
night, provided Grant would have
Flower out of town , by that time,
which he did, and he was sent away
never to return to Dallas. ,

The closing exercises of the South
Jersey camp meeting at South Sei

bonfire of tobacco and cigars.
A. M.' Woolston, a storekeeper,
of Fishing Creek, attended the holi

"new light" on the sale of tobacco.
Sending word to his wife, who was
attending the store, to nail up a
sign, "no moie tobacco sold here,"
he had his stock brought to the
meeting and soaked with kerosene.
He himself applied the mater,
