GREAT DAMAGE TO PROPERTY.
Factories,' Bridges and Bouses Des
troyed by Angry WatersA Cloud
burst in Minnesota.
Milwaukee, Wis., May 16. The tor
rent of water sweeping down Blac'river
valley b truck the river falls at 6 o'clock
this morning. Fir alarms were rang,
and the people harried from their homes
to aid those living in the lower part of
the city. The dam of the prairie mill
cbecku J the rush of water for a few min
utes, bu' it finally gave way. Two big
bridges wore swept from their fasten
ings, and several small bridges followed.
Meally's starch factory was swept down
stream. Another large" bridge went
next. All the families on the lowlands
were rescued at Bloomer.
At Chippewa valley several dwellings,
a large planing mill, the city pumping
bouse and fire engine-house are gone.
The immense dam across Black jiver,
near Black river falls, was in danger,
and tbe west wing was blown down to
save the remainder of the structure.
This sent a great flood down the valley
on Black river falls.
The big dam and "sluiceway of the
Glenwood Manufacturing Comany was
carried away with . several hundred
thousand feet of logs. Every bridge on
Tiffany creek is gone. Many dwellings
in the lower part of the village are under
water. The Wisconsin Central Chicago
train is cut off by washouts in the woods
about 1 miles from town. A 10-foot
rise is promised at Eau Claire, where
the water is now very high, before 10
tonight. Advices at the railway offices
at Milwaukee report washouts on all
the roads north and west of tbe city.
No trains are arriving today from St.
Paul and Minneapolis. The extent of
washouts could not be learned by offi
cials here, as the telegraph wires are
down or badly crippled.
Cloudlnrst at St. Paul.
St. Paul, May 16. A severe storm, in
the nature of cloudbursts, extending
over 25 miles, with St. Paul on tbe west
ern edge, did terrible damage last night.
Mrs. William Brennan of Erwiu Prairie
was killed, and others severely injured
by lightning. All the Chicago roads
suffered severely. No trains are arriv
ing on time. It is still threatening, and
it is feared the worst is not over.
Zealous Deputy Sheriffs.
Ottumwa, la., May 16. As one of
Kelley's boats was coming -down the
river the citizens of Eldon - called it
ashore for tbe purpose of giving the men
buttermilk. Deputy sheriffs employed
by the Ruck Islaud road rushed down to
prevent a landing.' Some one threw a
stone, breaking the rib of one of Kelley's
men and rendering. another unconscious.
The K jck Island deputies endeavored to
prevent a landing yesterday, and a
battle ensued. Conductor Charles
Martin was struck on the head with a
club and his skull fractured. - Two
Kellyites were arrested.
A Gang of Mnrdrrers.
Gate City, Va., May 16. Some 10 or
12 self-appointed regulators with dark
ened faces, Monday night, went to clean
out a house of evil repute near here.
The women, being warned, bad fled.'
Not finding them, the gang went to the
house of Sam Woods, colored, and ac
cused him of harboring the women.
This he denied, and upon his refusal to'
let the posse search his house, a voI!ev
was fired at him, killing him instantly.'
Three of the regulators have been ar
rested, and the others have fled to the
Hose Dwar. Secured Her Money.

the Taeouua woman, who came down

IIRIBEBT IS CHABGED.
Two United State. Senator
Washington, May 16. Lodge intro
duced in the senate a 'resolution author
izing the appointment of five senators
to investigate ""the i ""charges of the at
tempted bribery of senators in connec
tion with the pending tariff' bill, and
also the charges published in the Phila
delphia Press Monday morning contain
ing allegations relating to the influence
of the sugar trust upon tariff legislation.
. At the requeBt of Cockrell, tbe resolu
tion was laid upon the table until to
morrow. Rumors of the use of money
to influence aeion on the tariff bill
have been circulated, but heretofore re
ceived little attention. It is- learned
definitely today that intimations that a
money consideration could be secured
for votes against the tariff had been
made to the clerks of Senators Kyle and
Hunton by a North Dakota lobbyist,
formerly a member pt - congress from a
Southern state, and who was identified
with the carpet-baggers. It was repre
sented Kyle was to receive $14,000 and
$10,000 would be retained by the go-be-tweeen
as a commission. McFarlane,
Kyle's clerk, promptly informed Kyle,
who is now in South Dakota and will re
turn to Washington Saturday. It is
scarcely possible any syndicate control
ling tbe money necessary to attempt to
purchase votes' would intrust it to a man
who approached clerks..
Senator Hanton says be never saw
the man who offered the bribe, the ne
gotiations being carried on through bia
son. The briber offered $75,000 for
Hun ton's vote, and the senator is satis
fied $100,000 would readily have been
given. It is understood that Kyle has
a record of the briber's conversation and
proposition. The person to whom to
the description of the corruptionist ap
plies is Mijor J. A. Bultz of Baltzville,
N, D., once a member of congress from
South Carolina, and now a farmer and

Kansas City, May 16 In the Mis
souri democratic state convention this
morning a motion was made to recon
sider the vote H? which the previous
question was ordered on the report of
the resolution committee. This was

Pendleton, Or., May 16. The Na
tional bank of Pendleton closed its doors
this morning. Bank; Examiner Charles
Cleary is in charge, by order of the
comptroller. The failure caused no
surprise here ; in fact it had been ex
pected for some time. The troubles of
the bank are of many months' standing,
mostly brought on by the depression of
last year. The deposits" are not large,
and the failure wilt have no effect on
the business of. the community. The
bank's business will be settled up. The
depositors' money is quite safe, but the

There was a crowd on Fourth av

was gathered about a little girl and a
dog. There were a couple of police- j
men, a half-dozen women and a dozen ;
men. The little girl' was lost. The!
policemen knew it, the women knew I
it, the crowd knew it and the little girl
herself knew it. Now the problem '
everyone, was trying to solve was

'Where do you live?" asked a police
The little girl looked up in a fright

Not only the medical world, but the
laity also, have been highly, interested
by the evidence .. adduced by ' Prof.
Horsley in a lecture the other day, prov
ing that prehistoric man in the stone
age frequently performed the : danger
ous and delicate: operation pf trepan
ning. , He had found sixty skulls in
collections of these relics, on which
the operation had undoubtedly been
performed. In one case it had been
done by drilling a series of small holes,'
probably with a bone implement, and
then breaking small partitions and so
releasing a piece of bone. JCnother
operation seems to have been, per
formed with a fflnt saw. A 'third
method was scraping. This' discovery
is the most important proof yet dis
covered of the high intelligence of the
unrecorded races, . . ' . ' .
Leoncavallo, the composer of "I'
Pagliacci," has been requested by Em

from old-Brandenburg history, and the
Elector Frederick .II. is the. principal
personage in the story. Leoncavallo
has laid asle all his other work to ful
