A DREADFUL CALAMITY
Collision Between Two English Battle
ONE SANK WITHIN A FEW MINUTES
Nearly Five Hundred Lives Lost in
the Disaster Flagship Victoria
London, June 23. A frightful calam
ity has befallen the British battle-ship
Victoria, flagship of the Mediterranean
squadron, and hundreds of Uvea have
been lost. The Victoria which flew the
flag of Vice-Admiral Sir George Tryon,
K. C. B., was run into off Tripoli, Syria,
by the British battle-ship Camperdown,
also belonging to the Mediterranean
squadron, and under the command of
Captain Charles Johnstone. The' Vic
toria had an enormous hole made in her
side, through which the water poured
in torrents. The immense hull of the
Victoria at once began to settle, and
before those on board could cast loose
their small boats she went to the bot
tom, carrying down with her nearly all
on board. Some of the officers and
crew managed to get out of the suction
caused by the sinking vessel and were
rescued. Among those lost are Vice
Admiral Tryon. The first reports of the
disaster stated that about 200 men had
been drowned, but later dispatches
show the loss of liie is far greater, not
less than 400, officers and crew oi the
Victoria having gone down with the
ship. The Victoria was a twin-screw
battle-ship of 10,470 tons and 14,000
horsepower. She mounted 15 guns.
The Camperdown is also a first-class
twin-screw battle-ship, 10,600 tons and
11,600 horsepower, and carries 10 guns
Admiral Sir George Tryon was com
mander-in-chief of the Mediterranean
Rear-Admiral Albert H. Markham, of
the Trafalgar, the flagship of the rear
admiral in the Mediteraanean, has
telegraphed the admiralty from Tripoli,
Syria, under date of today, as follows : -
"I regret to report that while maneu
vering off Tripoli this afternoon the Vic
toria and Camperdown collided. The
Victoria sank in 15 minutes in 18
fathoms of water. She lies bottom up
permost. The Camperdown's ram
struck the Victoria forward of the tur
ret on the starboard side. Twenty-one
officers were drowned. Two hundred
and fifty-five men were saved. The in
jury to the Camperdown is not yet fully
ascertained, but is serious, and will
necessitate her going to the dock for re
pairs. I propose to send the survivors

June Crop Report.
Wheat. The report ot June 1st, based
on returns to the department of agricul
ture, makes the acreage of wheat as com
pared with that of last year 87.8 per
cent, being a reduction of 12.2 points.
The states in which the principal de
crease has occurred are Illinois, Missouri,
Kansas and California. The reduction
of the area in the states of Kansas, Mis
souri and Illinois was caused in the main
by the long continued drought and ex
tremely cold winter. A vast amount of
the acreage sown has been plowed up
and put to other crops. The decrease
from the acreage of 1892 is, in the state
of Illinois 24, in Missouri 16, and in
Kansas 39 points.
The percentage for the country of
spring wheat area is 94. The percentages
of the principal spring wheat states are :
Minnesota, 90 ; . Nebraska, 100 ; South
Dakota, 95 ; North Dakota, 96.
The condition of winter wheat has im
proved but slightly since the last report,
being 76.5 against 75.3 for the month of
May, the percentages of the principal
Btates being, respectively, Ohio, 90;
Michigan, 72; Indiana, 81; Illinois, 67;
Missouri, 74 ; Kansas, 47.
The condition of spring wheat presents
an average for the entire country of 86.4,
and for the principal spring wheat states
as follows : Nebraska, 65; Wisconsin,
89; Minnesota, 88; Iowa, 95; South
Dakota, 89 ; North Dakota, 92.
The average percentage of acreage for
both spring and winter wheat for the
whole country is 89.8, and the condition
for same, 78.8
Special Wool Kate Cancelled.
Chicago, Juno 23. Chairman Midg
ley, of the Western Freight association,
has telegraphed to the Great Northern,
Northern Pacific and Union Pacific rail
roads, calling attention to the special
wool tariff from north Pacific coast ter
minals to the Atlantic seaboard at the
rate of $1.05 per 100 pounds, and sug-
eested that as eastern lines will not
accept less than local rateseast of this
city, there is no alternative left for the
Western Freight association than can
cellation of the tariff.
SHE DEFIED THE POLICE.
Chicago, June 23. A granddaughter
of the famous Lady Watson, of London,
was arraigned at the Desplaines station
court yesterday for violating the ordi
nance prohibiting the gathering of street
crowds. She is Mrs. Margaret J. Rice,
and all over Canada and in some cities of
the United States she is more familiarly
referred to as "the wife of the cowboy
preacher." Mrs. Rice's offense consisted
in obstructing the corner of Pearl and
Madison streets by addressing a crowd
which was attracted there by the fervor
of her preaching. She is very young,
not being yet 18 years old, and both she
and her husband are among the most re
markable people the police have had
dealings with in a long time. Mrs. Rice
is the daughter of the late Hop. F. W.
Shields, of Toronto. The cowboy
preacher has been arrested 70 or 80 times
for obstructing the streets, and his wife
has likewise been a prisoner in different
cities for the same reason, and it has
been their practice to pay no fine on such
occasions. Kice says the present arrest
is the result of spite. In court Mrs.
Rice's dress was of fashionable cut, and
a nobby sailor nat, with a stand-up
collar and necktie, completed her attire.
On her fingers she wore several diamond
rings. "Not guilty," was her answer.
A small fine was imposed, but the justice
remitted the fine and Mrs. Rice was
allowed to go. Her friends have secured
Luther Laflin Mills to push a criminal
case against the police for false arrest.
Mrs. Rice preached from the same
corner, and the police were dened.
Will Be Bnilt to Withstand the
Camden, N. J., June 23. The house
in which Lieutenant Peary and his party
will make their winter quarters is now
almost completed, and will be taken
apart and stowed on the Fajcon after
she leaves Philadelphia next Monday.
It will be used on the east side of Ingle
field gulf, Greenland. Particular atten
tion has been given to protection from
the cold. The dwelling affords room for
the 12 men who are to comprise the
the party. It will be 13 feet from the
ground to the top of the glass dome, 35
feet long and 16 feet wide. To keep off
Arctic blasts, Lieutenant Peary has de
cided to construct a stone wall live teet
high and two feet thick around the
house. Corrugated iron plates and hot
bed sashes will be placed alternately
from the wall to the roof of the house all
the way round, thus forming a corridor
and compelling those desiring to leave
or enter to pass through three doors.
Tar paper between the floors, and an
electric light plant and photographic ap
paratus will be among the features of
' Excitement at the Fair.
Chicago, June 23. There is a model
of her majesty's ship Victoria, which
sank in the Mediterranean sea, in
the transportation building. As soon
as it became noised about that the Vic
toria, with her crew, had gone down
the world's fair visitors flocked
around the model by thousands. The
crowd Anally became so great it became
necessary for the guards to clear the

A HUMAN VAMPIRE
Public Sentiment Against Thomas
Henderson Boyd of Seattle,
WHO WAS MURDERED BY HIS WIFE
Testimony Developes That He Tried
to Force Her Into Compromising
Situations for Blackmail
Seattle, June 23. Special. Great
interest is exhibited here at present in the:
trial of Mrs. Boyd, nee Ursula Junietta
Unfug, owing to the fact that she has
deliberately acknowledged the killing oi
Thomas Henderson Boyd, her husband,
who was editor of an Olympia newspaper.
The court room of the criminal depart
ment is crowded, and the judge has been
obliged to order the court room doors
closed after the court room is filled to
avoid the jam which would follow in case
such an order was not made. Startling
revelations have been made by letters
written from Thomas Henderson Boyd
to Mrs. Boyd, in which he has laid deep
schemes for blackmailing a great many
prominent men of the state of Washing
ton. Prominent among these parties
are bankers and business men of Seattle,
Tacoma, Olympia and Spokane. The
general plan was to have his wife, who
was formally of unchaste character, but
who has been, since her marriage, true
to her marriage vows, go to these differ
ent men and entice them into com
promising positions with her, and then
extorting money from them in order to
save their reputation. This he urged
with such persistency and she resisting
it with the same earnestness, caused
them both to become desperate, and one
night, when Mr. Boyd endeavored to
force his wife into one of these inhuman
acts, she became desperate with anger,
and shot him four times, killing him in
stantly. The sympathy of the people
was somewhat against her until this
revelation, and it has been established
to such a degree of certainty that an
immediate acquittal is almost certain.
The revelations which seem to be well
proven establish the fact that Thomas
Henderson Boyd was one of the most in
human , immoral vampires whose life has
ever been investigated.
Seattle, June 23. Mrs. Boyd was
cleared at 1 :30 this morning by the jury.
Five hundred persons waited for the
verdict. It is said the defendant has
promised to become a missionary among
