RAIN 1 DAY AT CHICAGO
It Kept Many People From tie World's
QUARREL AMONG THE MUSICIANS
Exhibitors Arc Rushing Things to Fin
ish Work and Decided Progress
Is Being Made.
Chicago, May 11. Lowering skies
and downpouring rain this morning had
the effect of keeping many persons away
from the world's fair grounds; but as
the day wore on the clouds thinned, and
the prospects seemed better for a good
attendance. The committee investigat
ing the charges of favoritism by the de
partment of music, under the chairman
ship of P. Lammon, of Salt Lake City,
resumed its work this morning. It is
not known what the result will be.
Lammon said this morning that the
committee would make a report to the
national commission this afternoon.
The question as to whether the council
of administration or the national com
mission has jurisdiction is unsettled.
The former claims the commission has
no power in the premises, while many
members of the commission say that
body not only had jurisdiction, but will
exercise it. Under sharp orders from
the chiefs of the various departments,
exhibitors are furiously at work putting
their exhibits into shape, and decided
progress is being made.
BREAK IN THE LEVEE.
The Mississippi .River Is Again an the
Greenville, Miss., May 11. The
break in the levee at 1 o'clock this after
noon on the Arkansas side was over 700
feet wide. That portion of Arkansas is
under water. It is reported that Ar
kansas City will be under water by
night, as the levee there cannot hold.
Memphis, Tenn., May 11. Early this
morning the levee on the Arkansas side
gave way. There is a break 200 feet
wide, increasing hourly.
New Orleans. May 11. The levee
broke today at Lakeport, Ark., and
water is filling up the Tenas basin and
Black river. Both are said to be low
and able to hold the water.
A Famous Lost Mine Found.
Chihuahua, Mexico, May 11. News
reached here today that the famous and
marvelously rich lost mine in the Chi
huahua mountains has been discovered
by Martin Lanier and Frank Fonda,
two Americans who have been searching
for the property for several months.
About twenty years ago Lanier and his
father and brother were traveling
through the Chihuahua mountains and
camped on the reservation of the Chi
huahua Apache Indians. A member
of the tribe showed the Laniers a num
ber of gold nuggets and directed them to
the spot from which the wealth was ob
tained and worked it for a few weeks,
taking out several hundred dollars'
worth of gold with pick and shovel.
The Indians one day made a raid on
their camp and killed one of the broth
ers, and took the other brother and
father prisoners. The two survivors
were released upon promise to leave the
reservation immediately. The father
of the boys drew a diagram' of the loca
tion of the mine, which he kept in his
possession until a few months ago, when
he died. His son immediately fitted
out an expedition in Texas to search for
the lost mine, and found it without any
Chicago, May 11. The Columbia
Navigation bank of this city failed this
morning. It had a capital of $1 ,000,000,
and deposits of $1,400,000. Rumors that
it was in trouble have been current
nearly a week. It did business with
small country banks mostly, and was
not in esteem among the other city
banks. It is said the cause of the fail
ure was poor collections on loans. This
collapse and that in Indianapolis caused
a break of 2 cents in the price of
Wilmington, Del., May 11. The an
nouncement of the failure of R. R. Rob
inson & Co., bankers and brokers of this
city- 'today created a profound sensa
tion. Rumors of the failure of this well
known firm have been on the street sev
eral days, and' business circles were
excited. The liabilities are estimated
at $300,000; assets not to exceed $100,-
000. The sherifT seized all property of
Indianapolis, Ind., May 11. The
Capital National bank of this city has
suspended. The state bank examiner
is in charge. The failure was caused by
that of the Chemical National bank of
Chicago, which owed the Capital Na
tional $100,000. The Capital also car
ried a large amount of the Premier steel
works paper. The latter went into a
receiver's hands Friday. The officials
of the bank have made a statement in
which they say the capital stock is $300,
000. The bank has done a profitable
business. It was run on a conservative
basis, and there was nothing in the
bank's condition to cause uneasiness till
Tuesday, when the failure of the Chem
ical National of Chicago occurred.
Governor of New South Wales.
London, May 11. Lord Jersey's sue
cessor as governor of New South Wales
is the Rt. Hon. Robert W. Duff. He is
the first untitled governor of that colony
under the present
dates back to 1855
Premier Dibbs has

colonists care about a title per se, but
that they prefer to know that the social
functions at government house will be
administered by one who is a person a
grata at court. It is therefore not cer
tain that Sir George Dibbs' opinion will
concide with the opinions held by the
people of New South Wales.
PAHis,May 11. Hon. James B. Eustis,
the American ambassador, was present
today at the session of the Behring sea
tribunal of arbitration. Sir Charles
Russell resumed his argument, which
was largely devoted to the technical fea
tures of the controversy. Sir Charles
argued it was impossible that there
could be property rights in the seals in
Behring sea, and he supported his con
tention with quotations from American
jurists, and in particular from Professor
Wolseley's writings on international law.
Sir Charles dwelt on the far-reaching ef
fects upon international rights that
would ensue from conferring the power
claimed by American counsel in behalf
of the United States to seize foreign ves
sels in time of peace. Sir Charles
claimed that Great Britain represented,
in this controversy, the rights of nations.
A Life Insurance Decision.
Newport, Ky., May JH. The Ken
tucky court of appeals has handed down
a decision of great moment to insurance
companies. The court decides that a
policy taken out by a wife on the life of
her husband, without his knowledge,
cannot be collected in case of death, as
ap insurance contract is a personal con
tract. The court further holds that
where a wife has used her husband's
money in paying for such policy he may
recover by civil process.
Washington, May 10. The special
session of the supreme court today to
hear arguments upon the constitution
ality of the Geary Chinese exclusion act,
upon an appeal from the judgment of
the United States circuit court for the
southern district of New York, attract
ed an attention that more than exhaust
ed the limited accommodations of the
courtroom. The visitors included many
prominent members of the bar and a
large number of ladies.
A Drouth in Italy.
Rome, May 11. Reports to the gov
ernment from all parts of Italy show
the drouth so damaged crops it will be
necessary to import 113,500,000 bushels
of grain more than usual. It is believed
the import duty on this will cover the
deficit in the budget.

Mrs. Lease howi Her Womanliness.
Topeka, May 11. Mary E. Lease ie
president of the state board of charities,
which consists of three populists, and
two republicans. A vote was taken yes
terday for superintendent of the Sol
diers' Orphans' Home. The republi
cans voted for Falkner, the present
incumbent, and two populists for a new
man. Mrs. Lease, having the casting
vote, declared that Falkner never would
be put out by her vote. "He was a
member of the famous bucktail regi
ment," she said, "and stood beside and
cared for my two brothers who died on
the battlefield. He is a republican, but
for that deed he deserves uiy everlasting
love and support." The populists
roundly abuse Mrs. Lease.
London Stock Exchange.
London, May 11. The Bank of Eng
land today advanced the rate of discount
from 3 per'cent to 3 . The stock ex
change opened intensely excited. Diffi
culty was found in arranging the ac
counts. Union Pacific, Atchison, To
peka & Santa Fe and other American
shares declined up to 1 per cent.
Old Landmark Destroyed by Explosion of
a Oigantic Blast.
One of the biggest blasts of dynamite
that has ever taken place in a quarry,
if not the biggest, occurred the other
day at the Palisade quarries about two
miles from Fort Lee. The palisades at
this point, which is just opposite Fort
Washington, were shorn of about one
thousand feet of surface and the dis
placement extended about three hun
dred feet on an average into the rock.
"Washington's Head" has been a land
mark for many years to boatmen and
tourists going up and down the river,
the grim profile looking startlingly dis
tinct just when it came into view
through its resemblance to that of the
Father of His Country. Washington's
head is no more. It tottered and went
down in the general havoc caused by
the blast, and lies broken in a hundred
pieces at the foot of the palisades. The
blast was hardly felt at F'ort Lee, where
it simply made the earth quiver a little,
like an infant earthquake. Two miles
or more of fissured rock makes a good
buffer, and the shock was pretty well
exhausted -vhen it reached the village.
About four thousand pounds of dyna
mite was used and the weight of the
rock displaced was estimated at one
hundred thousand tons at the lowest,
A Coming Labor Leader.
Eugene V. Debs, the promotor and
president of the American Railway or
ganization which will henceforth be such
a factor in labor
affairs, is a man of
rare power with the
laboring men, and
it is believed that
in the next few
years bis name will
become as familiar
to the readers of
newspapers as a la
bor leader, as that
of Powderly or Gom
pers. He helped in
the formation of the Brotherhood of Lo
comotive Firemen, he held undisputed
sway in that organization for ten years.
However, he considers that the useful
ness of the brotherhood is over and is
being strongly censured for his criticisms
of the order. Debs has served in the
legislature, and for two terms he was
city clerk of Terre Haute, Ind. In a
quiet way he rendered the Cleveland
cause remarkable service last fall.
