that rate was increased. The govern

is now only eleven inches below the
high water mark oi 1888, which was the
highest point reached Hince in 1HM.
There are HO inches of water on
the office Boor of the Diamond

in at the windows of many buildings
along the levees. The Burlington boat
club's tine house is entirely surrounded
and the waler can be seen spreading out
over the low lauds in Illinois. The
river at this point is now nearly :i8
miles wide in places and boats can run
to Gladstone, Illinois, 12 utiles iniaiul.
The current of the river is taking a Bhort
cut through these low land and
considerable apprehension is felt by
property ownors for the safety of
their submergeJ buildups Tlie current
which rushes thro".Bu the long slough
bridges or; '.he Carthage branch of the
liurlington road greatly endangers their
Mtahility. There is only 11 inches of
space between the water and the rails of
this branch for Beveral miles between
here and Carmen, Illinois, and
if that is overcome, by the rising water,
it will block all trallic between this city
and CJuincy and St. Louis. All trains
on the HI. Louis, Keokuk & North

through passenger trains which are now
running via Quincy and Carthage.

New York, June 27 It is believed
among those who should be able to ar
rive at conclusions that strenuous efforts
are being made to effect a reconciliation
between Mr. and Mrs. Drayton. Tim is
looked upon as a fact. It is said that
Mrs. Astor is most anxious to bring
this about and is using every effort in
her power. She is depending largely
upon her lawyers, it is said, and there
fiave been a number of conferences be
tween them and Mr. Drayton's lawyers.
besides, Mrs. Astor has her strong so
It is thought Mrs. Drayton is not par
ticularly anxious to become reconciled
to her husband, nor has John jacoo
Astor any great personal desire to see
this brought about, but Mrs. Astor feels
that it is absolutely necessary, and her
strong will dominates the whole family.
The impression seems to he general that
Mrs. Astor couhdently expects ttiat a
reconciliation will be effected, and this
s the reason why she le:t her daughter
when she went to Europe.
The gossip includes the fact that Mr.
Drayton is very obstinate. At first he
would not hear of the matter at all. He
Baid that a reconciliation was not to be
thought of for a moment, but now, it is
said, he is being persuaded to look upon
the affair in a different light.
Club men say Mr. Drayton has little
to gain by a reconciliation from a am
terlal point of view. While he has no
money of his own, he has at his disposal
the income of money left his children
by William Astor.
No one who Knows anything about
the trouble has the least doubt that it
was upon Mr. Drayton's representations
that William Astor disinherited his
daughter; but it is whispered that
there may bti a change in Mrs. Dray
ton's financial aftairs. Her share in
estale should have been $1150, 000. Now
the story goes that hor brother, John
Jacob Astor, will give her this amount
and that ho will even increase it to a
But one man said: "If this is done.

Pauls, June 24 A duel was fought
yesterday between the Marquis de Mores
mid Captain Mayer, in which (be latter
was seriously wounded. Ihe duel grew
out of the anti-Semitic campaign.
Captain Mayer died last evening from
the wounds received.
Marquis De Mores iB deeply grieved at
the fatal outcome of the duel and says
that the comba was fought under con-
litions which ought to have prevented a
fatal termination. Mayer belonged to
the engineer corps and was regarded by
friends as a brilliant olHcor. Mayer was
a Hebrew and the duel arose from a re
mark of DeMores, that no Jew ought to
bo a member of the army. The duel
was fought with swords. The terms
were that ihe duelists were not to come to
thecloso-t quarters, and cease when one
received a wound, placing him in a posi
tion inferior to his adversary. When
the duelists hud taken positions the
usual signal "Allez" was given and
the Marquis made a direct thrust
which was parried by Mayer.
The Marquis again made a rapid
lunge, tho sword passing through
Mayer's guird and piercing his bidy
oeiow tho armpit. Ihe marquis im
mediately disengaged his weapon and
leaped back on his own ground. The
marquis advanced to his prostrate an
tagonist and bending over him asked:
Captain Mayer, will you allow mo to
shako hands with vou?"
Captain Mayer held out his hand,
V surgeon attended the wounded man.
As soon as he was made comfortable
and circumstances permitted he was
placed in a carriage and removod to the
hospital, where he died at 6 o'clock
Captain Mayer had carefully concealed
from his relatives all knowledge that he
was to light a duel. When the news of
his sou's death was broken to his
father his grief was extreme.
He went to the hospital and
the body of his son was given to
him he conveyed the remains home,
where the dead nisn's mother was dis
tracted. When the body was taken into
flu house Mine Mayer threw her arms
about it and covered his face with kisses.
Tlie alfair is deeply regretted at Ecole
Techneque where Captain Mayer held
a professorship. H was greatly esteem
ed by his fellow ilfiotra was a splendid
fencer and had aipearel in numerous
assaults at arms, iue representative of
the Associated Press had an interview
with De Mores today. He expressed
much sorrow for the death of Cap
tain Mayer and added : "I am
aware that the authorities will las us a
warrant lor my arrest. What does
it matter? The magistrates will not
prevent the prosecution of the work
we have undertaken. The personal
question is nothing, the principles are all
in all. We are but at the beginning of
a evil war."

Cincinnati, Ohio, June 28 The work
of the national convention of the prohi
bition party was practically opened
today with the meeting of the national
committee. Chairman S. T. Dickie, of
Ann Arbor, Mich., presided. Tlie pri
mary object of the meeting was the se
lection of temporary otlicers for the con
vention, but the committee did not con
fine itself to this and the meeting was
largely in the nature of a caucus to
shape as far as possible in advance the
proceedings of the convention. Atten
tion was drawn to tlie coincidence that
ttiis 1 1 test and most promising conven
tion of the party was held in Ohio, a
State in which the first presidential can
didate of the prohibitionists was named.
All sorts ot pleasant auguries were
drawn from the fact. The leaders ex
press confidence that this will be the
largest convention ever held and are
making preparations to give the move
ment a boom.
The Music hall in which the conven
tion will be held, the place in which
Hancock was nominated for the presi
dency, has a seating capacity of nearly
five thousand. The building is decor
ated with bunting, Hags, coat of arms of
the various State , inscriptions suitable
to the prohibition convention and a lew
not complimentary to the leading polit
ical parties. A hundred and fifty dele
nates are in town. Several special
trains are on the way. Foii'teen car
loads are expected from the Pacific coast
and far west. Tne southern ueiegates
are scattering and some of the far South
ern States will not be well represented
All sorts of ideas are bruited about
among the delegates present for pres.
entation to the convention. The presi
dential nominatian at present seems to
lie between General fiidwell and Mr,
Demorest. The former is the choice
of tho leaders who are putting
him forward to oppose Demo
rest. The principal point urged in
favor of the latter seems to be that he
will subscribe liberally to the campaign.
But the leaders want a man who will
take well as a speaker, and they say it
Demorest is nominated it will be neces
sary to send him away until tlie cam
paign is over so he cannot make any
speeches or be interviewed. A sensa
tion was create ! in the beer and music
halls over the Rhine last night by visits
from ex-Governor St. John, of Kansas,
his wife, Kev. M. C. Lockwood, Mrs.
Helen Goudar and other prominent pro
hibitionists. They saw the actual
workings of these places, but made no
attempt at missionary work among
Miss Frances E. VVillard has an

ilar arrang ment a year ago in order to
get better terms Irom the Pennsylvania
company for the terminal system. He
succeeded in his purpose and at the
same time made the Pennsylvania share
the terminal's traffic with the Balti
more & Ohio, That is the present con
dition of things.
A gentleman lamiliar with the affair
said the Reading and Baltimore &
Ohio were anxious to make an exclusive
alliance with the Richmond Terminal
system, but the latter company would
lose and not gain by breaking faith with
the Pennsylvania. It now gets business
from both the Pennsylvania and the Bal
timore & Ohio.

Ansonia, Conn., June 28 News of a
whitecap outrage in the village of South
lord, 12 miles back in the country,
reached here today. The name of the
victim is not known, even by the men
who perpetrated the outrage. He has
resided inSouthford some time, but has
kept aloof from the villagers and is only
known by a nickname. For some
months there has been talk about cer
tain women here who have visited his
house at night. This led to a call being
quietly issued and the meeting was
held Saturday night at which it was
determined to wipe out the scoundrel.
At a late hour, a party of men dis
guised as whitecaps, silently marched
to the man's home. He was awakened
and ordered to come into the yard,
where the poor fellow was stripped.
Then the whitecaps tied him to a tree
and whipped him with switches cut
from the birch trees in the woods near
by. He writhed and trembled under
the terrible punishment and had almost
fainted when the leader ordered the
gang to stop.
One of the crowd suggested tar and
feathers, but the poor man broke away
from his captors and escaped into the
woods. Where he is now no one knows,
but as he is without clothing it is proba
ble he has made his way to Oxford or
Middleburg and has been cared for by
some hospitable farmer.
Southford is a small station on the
New England road and news does not
travel beyond its borders. Tue story ol
the outrage was brought here this after
noon by the stage driver. He says the
town is greatly worked up over it, a few
strongly condemning the proceeding.

Butte, Mont., June 25 This commu
nity is again thrown into excitement by
another foul murder. At daybreak yes
terday morning Police Olhcer William F.
Jordan was shot and instantly killed by
two Durgiars, who made .good their es
cape. The murder occurred in an untre-
quented portion ot the city. Six shots
were exchanged by the policeman and
his assassins. it is believed that the
men were in the act of committing a
burglary, when they were surprised by
Jordan, and ir, resisting arrest killed
him. One btille! entered Jordan's
heart. A number of people saw two
men fleeing and scaling backyard fences.
Over 100 mounted and armed men are
engaged in the search for the murderers.
Jordan was a brave and fearless man,
and recently dirarmed and arrested
three notorious safe blowers. He had
been on the force nine years. He leaves
a wife an 1 four childr n. The mayor
today ottered a reward of $5,000 for the
capture of the murderers.
Recent events have wrought popular
feeling to a high pitch. Just a year ago
VV. J. Penrose was foully assassinated
and his slayers are still at large. Last
week two men attempted to murder
Henry Williams, a wealthy and influ
ential mining man. They took three
shots at him through a wire screen door
after calling him out to talk with them.
Fortunatoly they did not hit him. A
reward of $25,000 is offered for the arrest
of these men. Holdups, burglarieB and
robberies have been of daily occurrence
for several months. The authorities
seem unable to cope with the evidently
organized band of criminals. The county
and city jails are filled with criminals.
During the week twelve have been Bent
to the penitentiary, but the town is still
overrun with them. No man goes about
the etreet at night unarmed and many
hire policmen to escort them home.
During the month 27 convicts wore
liberated from the penitentiary, and
most of them are now in Butte. At the
request of citizens the newspapers have
been announcing meetings of the vigil
ance committee with a view of scaring
the criminals off, but it has been of little
avail. The a i nation has reached a point
where tho citizens will surely organize
into a committee. Talk is very strong
and earnest in this direction today.
There is a determination to strike a blow
now, and in the wrath of the people
some innocent men may sutler. Four
men have been arrested on suspicion
and will be held to await develop
ments. The hills west of the
city presented an unusual scene of
activity and life this afternoon. From
noon people walked over that way, at
tracted by curiosity to the place where
the murderers are supposed to be se
creted. Many sworn deputies and offic
ers have beer, hunting along the aban
doned shacks on the flat west of town.
At 3 o'clock this afternoon the hills were
black with people. Many were armed,
and if the murderers should be found they
would be shown little mercy. Between
this city and Burlington gangs of men
are searching every crevice, cabin and
mine in the hope of locating the fiends.

Rochester, N. Y., June 28 This city
and vicinity was visited today by a very
heavy thunder storm. The rain felt in
torrents, the total fall amounting to two
inches. In the surrounding country the

storm waa even more severe. Trees
were uprooted, electric light and tele
graph wires were blown down and other
aerious damage was done.
In O.-sian, DeWitt Van Scoter entered
a burning barn and tried to remove

Puyallup, June 28 In the early hours
of this morning an affray occurred here
which came very near being fatal.
Health Officer Mitchell, while in the
discharge of his duties, was examining
the rear of the bakery of Charles Miller,
on Stewart street, and after concluding
his examination, told Mra. Miller that
the alley would have to be cleaned or
the legal consequences would be in
curred. Mrs. MiLer misunderstood his
remarks, and applied them as an insult,
and reported the same to her hus
band, who last night got very
much intoxicated and went on a hunt
for the Doctor. Alter a long search he
at last found him in his office and pro
ceeded to chastise him. But the Doctor
was not intoxicated and so had the best

with an ugly gash over the eye, which
some say was inflicted by a blow with
the butt of a pistol, but which the Doc
tor says was caused by violent contact
with the railing of the stairway. Mider
is in jail.
