housed flames were seen rising from the

Main street, in front of the Benton
County bank. It was soon extinguished
and cotton and rags saturated with coal
oil were found. This raised tho indigna
tion of the citizens, and immediately a
meeting was held on a street corner. It

reward for the arrest and conviction of
any person caught in the act of incen

Sadie Brantner's Confession.
Seattle, June 17. The Wickersham
case developed another sensation this
morning, when the attorneys for the
defense filed affidavits in the district
court, which will likely clear him of
the criminal charge of which he was
convicted at the last terra of court,
and those still hanging over him for
The chief aifidavit is sworn to by
Sadie Brantner, the prosecutrix.
About tera days ago she was allowed,
by her friends here, to go to Tacoma to
visit her mother, onicondition that she
would return last Saturday, Nothing
has since been heard of her uutil this
rooming, when her affidavit was pro
duced in court. In this paper she
clears Judge Wickersham of the charge
of seduction and says that Steal Baker,
of Tacoma, held relations of criminal
intimacy with her as far back as 1885,
fully two years before she met Wicker
sham ; also that she held like relations
with several prominent merchants of
Tacoma, whose names-are not given,
although she intimates that she has
told Wickersham who they are. She
says that the affidavit made in the
Denny block, in Seattle April 30, excul
pating Wickersham, was true and made
of her own free will and accord, although
two days after that time she made
affidavits that Wickersham had enticed
her into the Denny .block, and had
obtained the statements from her by
threats and personal violence.
In lile manne: she retracts every
word of the testimony she gave at the
famous trial, and m subsequent affida
vits for the prosecution. She abuses
Mrs. Handsaker, who provided a Lome
for her here and stood by her through
the trial, accuses the prosecuting officers
of forcing her to testify against Wicker
sham, and closes the affidavit by saying
that it is made to clear her conscience
and to clear an innocent man.
Other affidavits, sworn to by Sadie
Sevier, a female detective. A. J
Lucas, a detective, and Harry Searles,
a negro detective, are also filed. They
tell how Sadie Brantner met Wicker
sham at three several times after the
trial, for tho purpose of making .a con
fession, exculpating him, and how she
signed such statements in the Denny
block on April 30, of her own free will
Wickersham's motion for a new
trial in the seduction case is now pend
ing, and it is likely he will get it on the
strength of these affidavits. If a new
trial is allowed, the prosecution will
dmibtleRS drop the case, as they will
see it will be useless to continue the
prosecution under the circumstances,
although they believe Wickersham to
The general impression here is that
Wickersham has secured control of the
girl through his detectives, and induced
her to make this retraction.
The Kansas Storm.
St. Louis, June 17. Additional ad
vices about the disaster in Kansas from
the wind and rain Btorm are that Union
town, fifteen mjles west of Fort Bcott, is
swept away, and two women and four
children drowned. UniontoWn is a

houses. The part of Fort Scott known
as Belltown is entirely under water and
the railroads are inundated and washed
IN other sections.
. Iola, Kas., June 17. Allen county
has suffered severely during the past
thirty-six hours from floods in the
Neosho river and its principal tributar
ies. The streams have been unusually
high all the spring, and the heavy rains
Saturday night brought them out of
their banks, flooding the bottoms for
miles on either Hide. .
There has been no loss of lifo or live
stock, and those living on the lowlands
were warned in time, but it is feared
that hundreds of acres of wheat, which
was just ripening and promised a very
large yield, will be almost a total loss,
while the submerged corn and other
crops will be greatly damaged.
LOSS OF LIFE.
Eldorado, Kas., June 17. The upper"
valley of the Walnut is flooded lrom
excessive rains, and the streams are
higher than for years. Saturday night
the river came up so suddenly that a
family named Graham started for their
home to the highland, but the mother
and a babe were drowned. The father
and one child escaped. Grain fields are
flooded and much damage must, result.
A portion of the Missouri Pacific track
is washed ' away. There have been no
trains in over the Santa Fe since yester
day. It is surmised that a number of
people are drowned in the lower valley.
The water is receding this morning.
A later rumor reports the drowning of
O. Beaver and a man named Cassidy.
Sunday at Johnstown.
Johnstown, June 16. In the few
churches remaining, services were held
today, but the largest meetings of. the
day took place in the "open air. The
weather was fair and the men seemed

age is burning fiercely for 200 yards.
The debris was searched previous to

London, June 16. Michael Davitt,
the Irish leader, in an interview as to
his opinion on the question of the com
plicity of Alexander Sullivan in the mur
der of Dr. Cronin, said : "I have read of
the arrest with the greatest astonish
ment. I have the highest opinion of the
character of . Sullivan. I think the
charge that he has been implicated in
any way in the assination of Dr. Cronin
is absurd. I also think that the allega
tions that he ever misappropriated one
penny of the funds of the national
league are groundless. I believe him to
have been the very soul of honor. So
far from having enriched himself out of
the lunds of the league he had to my
own personal knowledge drawn on his
own resources for the aid of that organi
