Los Angeles, July 21. Ex-Attorney
General W. II. II. Hart, who has been
iu this city 'for .the past five days looking
up evidence in the famous Blythe contest,-left
for Sun Francisco today. He
was very reticent as to the .discoveries
in this city of the alleged will of Blythe,
merely intimating that he had seen . a
copy of such document, y .
Aside from the will question, it is
stated, that the lawyer's Visit to Los
Angeles lias resulted in the discovery of
two important witnesses in the person
of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Cherry.
It is stated that their testimony, if al
lowed to be given, will be to the effect
that Blythe told them of his connection
with Mrs. Ashcroft, and acknowledged
Florence to be his daughter. 1 -
-Hart positively declined to state
whether or not h& had found the sup
posed long-lost Ulythe win. There
4sr outsiders, however, who declared
most positively that the original will' in
Blythe's handwriting 1 has been found,
and that almost the entire property is
willed to Florence Blythe. ' '
The Churrys ,clainh"ey;were in San
Esanwsco during the lest vears of
Thomas Blythe's lifetflufc. iVirs. Cherry
of opium were J found. . The' plat that
was bo securely bolted entainedjt about
twenty sham bolt heaas and four legiti

inch thick, was taken ol"nd forty-four
boxes were brought to lijf'it. Tbe third
bed-plate contained abiut fifty more
boxes, 'all of which wasj found in this
morning's search. ' In the neighborhood

vesrigtitions, and treated , Blythe for
heart trouble ; that in the oourse of their
acquaintance Blythe gtew, quite friendly
with'Mrs. Cherry and talked freely of
his life and affairs. He frequently men
tioned Florence Blythe, as a 'child,
and her mother, also known as
Mrs. 'Ashcroft. He told Mrs. Cherry
that while ' he ,was in Europe, he
lived very Highly ; that he had elegant
rooms where Mrs. Ashcroft occasionally
visited him J that the result, of this un
ion is the child that how appears as the
claimant of the estate, '
The conversations he had with Mrs.
Cherry continued until a short time
previous to Mr. Blythe's death. He
showed her a picture of the girl, and
said be had had a picture taken of her
every- year since she was born He
never, denied that Florence was his
child, and showed letters in which the
little girl was mentioned as "Flo.",
A Large Opinm Seizure,
San Francisco, July 9 The steamer
Empire, five and one-half days from
Nanaimo, B, C, arrived in this port
yesterday, loaded with coal consigned to
R.'D. Chandler, and was hauled into
the Pacific street dock.' Owing to her
late arrival, search. by the custom house
officers was not -commenced until this
morning, when they were set to work.
The examination has been so far con
fined to the engineers department of the
vessel, in which place the bed plates pf
the engines had been most advantage
ously used, and the compartments com-
pletely p'acked with ppium. To an ob
seryer the bed plates are the most se
curely1 fastened piece of iron on the ship,
bolts not more than a quarter of an inch
apart running around the entire plates
, The idea flashed into the minds of the
searchers that there were' too many
bolts for practical use, and an examina
tion could result in no loss. Into the
dirty, greasy apartment the necessary
tools were carried, and tne work was
commenced. Tho plates looked solid
but their true use was soon made known
when it was found impossible to turn
one of the bolts, and tneir . seemed no
way of getting it off, A cold chisel was
brought into Use, ' and the plato; was
soon in the hands of the searchers, and

Lancaster, O., July 20. One of the
most disastrous storms ever known in
the Hocking vallev culminated' yester
day in the breaking of Sharp's dam at
Sugar Grove, on the Hocking canal.
The dam held in store a large body of
water that supplied the lower levels of
the canal. Heavy rains had filled the
reservoir to its banks, when suddenly
the dam gave away, and the wa,ter went
out through the valley, taking' with it
every movable object. For twenty
miles -the soil is plowed up. Trees,
fences, crops and hundreds of head of
live stock were swept away. Ko lives'
were lost, because the houses are
rsituated on a bluff that overlooks the
valley: But the ' canal for miles is a
wreck, and thousands of feet of railroad
track are washed away. '
Wheeling, W. Va., July 21, An In-
tflligencer special from the flooded dis
trict tonight says : It is feared that the
death list will be much increased when
points cut off from the outside world are
heard from. , ' '
A later dispatch says that the village
of 'Morristown, in Wirt county, , was
swept entirely away. Great aufferinj
ex'ats among, those who lost all they
will issue an appeal tor aidl Tbeclouil-

where the five creeks have a common
source. V. , ' ' ' .
The damage to crops .was enormous,
and the farmers will be dependent upon
charity until the next season. '
Parkersbirg, W. Va., July 20. An
estimate can hardly yet be formed of
the great calamity that swept over' the
kittle JVanawtia valley, but enough is
known to mark it as the most destructive
in life and 'property ever occurring in
West Virginia.
The scene of the great disaster was on
Pond creek, in Jackson, county and
Tucker creek; in Wirt county. Pond
creek rose twenty-five feet in an hour
from the time of the cloudburst, and the
water spread from hill to hill, and car
ried all before it. '
Four men took refuge in the Thomas
mil!. - The mill was Washed away and
Edward Boss- was drowned. '
. Thomas Black and his newly wedded
wife were washed from their home and
perished. , . ,
Thomas Hughes, his wife and four
children", fled from their home, but the
water overtook them and none escaped
but Hughes. , . '!
On Tucker creek seven lives are re
ported to have been lost, but no definite
information can be got. The loss 'to
property is immense,' and will run up
into the millions. .
no appointment of a president or of
professors bad yet been made, although
a number of applications had been re
ceived for professorships. The main
building is now ready to be partitioned
into, class rooms, the engineer is now

of the leading institutions there, and the
work will go on when his plans are
