I were drowned in tne wreck near
I I Dover on the Rock Island at Cim

the cars except tbe Pullman went

weakened bv the stream and swol

It is reported that the 100 pas
sengers in the chair cars were all
drowned except Floyd Zeist. Many
passengers aie more dead than
alive and are being treated at the
Cim rron Bridge, via Kingfish
er, Oklanoma, Sap. 19. Contrary
to yesterday's report, it developed
today that 20 pereons who were
known to have occupied the smoker
on the northbound Rock Island
train that went into the Cimarron
river, near Dover, yesterday morn
ing, are unaccounted lor. Efforts
are being made to locate the smoker
which is at a point ten yards below
the site of the bridge. A strong
eddy is believed to mark the spot
where the smoker sank. The water
has fallen five feet from the high
mark of yesterday, but neither the
engine, baggage car nor the Etnoker
can be seen.
When the train went off the
bridge the baggage car, smoker and
day coach broke loose and toppling
on tbe wrecked bridge swung down
stream. Immediately the baggage
car sank. The smoker half floated
with one end above the water, the

coach broke ana submerged it was
cartied down tbe river for a die
tance of over 100 yard?. None of
tbe persons who escaped saw any
one leave tbe smoker except four
persons who stood on the roof of
that car when it was struck by a
portion of the wrecked bridge. They
were knocked into , the water and
rer-cued finally several miles down
the river, clinging to debris.
An additional death was added
to tbe lif-t of known victim? today

Salem, Or., Sept. 18. "Gentle
men, this is no execution; it

words of John C. Barnes, who wa

today for the murder of William

About 4U persons witnessed the
execution, which took place in ; the
state execution chamber at the oris
on. Barnes conducted himself very
coolly. He waved the reading of
the death warrant.
When be ai rived upon the scaf
fold andwas asked if he had any
thing to say, Barnes stepped for
ward to the front and began a hur
ried and uneasy search of the faces
of the audience beneath him, as it
looking for somebody he knew, and,
seemingly disappointed, he began
to speak. In a voice that trembled
with the emotions he was straggling
so hard to conceal he spoke a few
As he stepped back toward the
trap Barren motioned for a green
book which Warden Curtis was car
rying for him and opened it. It
proved to be a copy of the Gospel
Hymns and he epened it and hand
ed it back to the warden with the
request that somebody sing tbe song
for him. Warden Curtis called for
volunteers, but nobody ventured
forward. Barnes smilingly waved
the ceremony and stepped back to
bis position on tbe trap saying he
No time was lost in adjusting the
death mask, straps and noose and
the only words that were spoken to
the officers during the interlude
were: "Don't be in a hurry, boys;
take it cool." Scarcely a moment
after this the trap was sprung.
Milwaukie, Wis., Sept. 19.
Fleas, millionfa of fleas, big Rus
sian importations, and not a reme
dy in sight. That is the situation
Not content with invading the
second district sehool and putting
the teachers and pupils in need of
first aid to the injured, almost con
tinuously the pestiferous insects,
with no fear of leee majeste before
their eyes, are said to have Btrolled
across the city and, after a look
over the aristocratic residence dis
trict of the East Side, invaded the
sacred precincts of society at the
Country Club. There, it is stated,
they took up quarters in the club
house and wren tired of causing
trouble, strolled across to the golf
links and made their presence man
lfest. How many foozles were
brought about by the sudden man
ifestation of the pest will never be
known. But it has come to be e
complete defense for a poor score.
Up in the school-board quarter
oi tbe City Hall is a eign:
Wanted A Flea exterminator
No reasonable off rs refused."
Secretary Harbach has neglected
bis duties to put in bis time study
ing methods of exterminating the
pest. He is becoming ao authority
on neas, tbeir baoits, metnous p&a
the number of pounds they can lift
to the equare inch when they get
down to business on a he avy-weigbt
but fo far not a word as to relief
Mr. Harbach's discoveries have
led him to the discovery, however,
of what will not do. He has found
that sulphur, which was recommend
ed as a sovereign remedy, has the
same effect on a flea as an icecream !
Sunday on a Summer cirl. Insect
powder, said to be infallible, simp
ly adds pugnacity to the flea until
he could rout Gans or Jack O'
Brien in one round, all holds allow
ed. Even Paris green has none but
a fattening effect.
After much r( search the secreta
ry's worried lock disappeared today
under the feeling that be has found
a remedy for tbe trouble. He gave
it out as a fact that common kero
sene oil will land a flee quicker
than a soltr blow will a pugilist.
Saturday Mr. Harbach with a force
of assistants from the health de
partment will make a trial of this
sovereign remedy. They will spray
the interior of the school house un
til It looks like a section of the
Standard Oil Company. If this
fails but that the secretary says is
something too dismal to contem
plate. If it succeeds of joy will be
sung by teachers and scholars.
Meanwhile tbe members of the
Country Club will await tbe result
of Secretary Harbach's experiments.
Even if they succeed, the remedy
will be almoet as bad as tbedisease.
To fay nothing of the 6mell, it
would mean a disruption of club
ties for a time until the carpets and
furniture could be removed and the
spraying gone over. But if it is to
be a case of scratch or smell, tbe
latter is preferred. Toilet water
can be purchased, while "dope" is
Let it not be understood that the
Country ClubiteB object to the pres
ence of active and energetio insects.
Not for a moment. They insist that
no flea with any pretensions to re
spectability would think of doing
so ungentlemanly an act as to in
vade the hallowed precincts of the
club house. Their sporting blood
nas been aroused and members are
offering $5 a flea for any fund. To
prevent ringers they will insist on
such an inspection of investigators
as would make a customs inspector

thousand were drowned in a ty
phoon which struck this city at 2
o'clock this morning. Immense
damage was done to shipping, many

of life following all along the China
shore. Thousands of houses were
demolished, burying many in their
ruins. Hordes of natives are with
out Bhelter. All business in the
city is suspended.
Ihe storm lasted two hours and
came suddenly, without warning.
Tbe disaster is the worst in the his
tory ot the city. Scores of vessels
were swamped and beaten againet
their pieis, crashirg and mashing
both boats and piers. The count
less junks and the native , crews
were drowned like rats in a trap.
The American sailing vessel P.
Hitchcock is among the veesels

steamers foundered in the harbor.
Nearly every vessel which was lost
went down with all hands aboard.
Among the vessels wrecked is the

Seattle, Sept. 18. In answer to
the question as to whether or not
she was willing to undergo punihe
rnent for the murder 1 of George
Mitchell, Mrs. Maud Hurt Cieffield
made the following reply to tbe al
ienist examining her this morning:
"I am acxious to pay the penalty
of the law. I would be glad to give
up my life for the murder of Geo.
Mitchell. I have fulfilled tbe pur
pose for which God placed me In
this world and I care not what hap
pens to me."
Mrs Creffield's testimony was as
"After the killing of my husband
I was so disturbed that I could not
receive a message from God. After
I prayed I entered into a etate of
prayer that God might witness to
me what I Bhould do. When I be
came composed, it was witnessed
tbJougb my spirit tb&t it was the
will of God that I ehould kill Geo.
Mitchell. I feared that my desires
and not tbe will of God was spaak
ing to me, so I again entered into a
state of praye Again God's word
came to me that I should kill Geo.
Mitchell. There could be no mis
take that it was God's will.
"My husband's spirit also spoke
to me telling me it was his wish as
well as that of God that I should
avenge his death.
I was to fulfill tbe word of God
tbat I would be eubjected to the
penalty of man's law. But then I
never considered the laws of men
when the will of God has bsen
made known to me."
After making this statement the
medical commission inquired if she
had been commanded by God to
kill George Mitchell, why she let
Esther Mitchell do the slaying.
She said: "It was God's will that
the Bhould do the slaying."
The examination of Mrs. Crefheld
closed at noon. Esther Milchell is
being examined this afternoon.
