Twenty-Five Deaths Caused
by a Texas Cloudburst.
Crop« in tne Inundated District Will
Prove a Total Loss — H und red a of
Cattle and Hogs relished.
Austin, Tex.. June 10.—The cloud­
burst of yesterday, which swelled the
rivers of this portion of the state out
of their banks, and oaused a great loss
of property, was much worse than te-
ported last night. Many people are re­
ported to have perished, meager reports
tonight placing the number at 25.
Today reports came from San Saba
and Manardville, small towns, 90
miles north of here, in the mountains,
saying that both towns had been swept
by the taging floods, and were devas­
tated. In San Saba, eight people w’ete
drowned and ti e entire town is repott­
ed under water tonight. The river at
that point is one mile wide and run­
ning like a millrace. At Manardville,
13 houses were swept away, and this
morning several more gave way into
the swirling torrent and started on
their voyavge down the stream. The
river is reported as rising at other
places, and grave fears are entertained
that the entire country in that neigh­
borhood will be laid to waste.
San Saba is located in a valley, and
vast tracts of wheat fields are under
water. These crops will prove a total
loss. Many persons, according to re­
ports received here today, had diffi­
culty in getting to high land before the
rise came. The situation at Manard­
ville is even more serious. A small I
town located to the right and in the
bend of the river in the valley, it
proved an easy prey to the raging tor­
rent. Seventeen people are known to
have been drowned tiiere, and there
may be others. Of those drowned, two
were young white girls, Lydia and
Ama Wells. The others were all ne­
groes, who were living in cabins close
to the river front, and were caught in
the flood before they could make their
way to safety, owing to the darkness
of the night.
All the surrounding
country is inundated.
This additional flood has not yet
reached Austin, but it is expected tiers
some time during the night. A 45-
foot rise is expected. The big dam
and power-house at this point has been
under a heavy strait) since yesterday,
owing to the terrific force of the flood. I
The farming lands below the city axe
under water.
Owing to the fact that all telegraphic
communication with San Saba anc
Manardville was interrupted i|t an
early hour tonight, no additional de­
tails have been received fiom these
points. It is known, however, that
the property damage will exceed
$100,000. Livestock suffered severely,
hundreds of cattle and hogs having
been swept away by the resistless tor­
rent. The river, running, as it does,
through a mountainous region to thi.
point, rises very quickly and falls as
rapidly. This particular rise was an­
nounced by a solid wall of water 10
feet high, which swept everything be­
fore it.
Reports from Bastrop, 80 miles south
of Austin, state that several bridges
have been wrecked by the rushing wa­
ters. The loss to the farming land»
south of here will represent another
<100,000.______________ _

London, June 10. — The morning pa-
pers are beginning to talk seriously of
the possibility of war in South Africa.
Mr. Chamberlain, secretary of state for
the colonies, in his speech in the house
of commons yesterday, announced that
his reply to the petition of the Uit-
landers, which had been held back
pending the result of the conference at
Bloemfontein, would now be presented
to the Transvaal.
This reply is senii-offleinlly described
as “explicit but conciliatory,” but it is
believed to be in the nature of a prac­
tical ultimatum.
The resources of
diplomacy are regarded as exhausted
with the failure of the conference.
Nothing is left, it is felt, beta recourse
to force. ________________
Firework» Exploded.
New York, June 10.—Thirty-six
buildings comprising almost the entire
plant of the Nordiinger-Cliarlton Fire­
works Company, at Graniteville, Rich­
mond borough, were blown up thia
afternoon, and the entire fireworks
plant practically wiped out of exist-
ence. No lives were lost and but three
peisons were injured, two of them seri-
ously. The property loss will not ex­
ceed <35,000.

New York, June 10. — A dispatch to
the Herald from Havana says:
uel Yribas, manager of Caidenas-Jtnoca
railroad, who arrived in Havana today,
says brigandage continues uninterrupt­
ed in Porto Principe province and
Western Santiago He says the coun­
try around Puerto Padre, Nuevitas,
Gibara and Holqiun is completely at
the mercy of bandits. Cattle have
been stolen from the farms and other
outrages have been committed.
Most of the fanners have suspended
cultivation in San Manuel, and a sugar
estate near Puerto Padre, owned by
Mr. Pla, has been obliged to shut
Cuban soldieis, mostly ne­
groes, hang around the villages, but
won’t work, and the robberies are as­
cribed to them, but no attempt i9 being
made to prosecute them. A strong
feeling exists there that the United
States should send soldiers to protect
property. Juan Potous, Spanish vice-
consul here, says the Spaniards are re­
ceiving no protection from the United
States. There is no recognized consul
in Havana nt present, and he cannot
put the claims before Genera) Brooke.
He lias made a statement to the Span­
ish minister at Washington.
It is learned from towns in the coun­
try that Spaniards are suffering many
oruelties, but make no complaint
through fear of beinfc killed. In Cai-
mato three were killed a month ago,
but no notice was given by the authori­
ties. On Sunday night four black Cu­
ban soldiers showed where they killed
the Spaniards in a cafe, boasting of the
deed. These men are sacking the coun­
try in the vicinity.
American cattle-dealers have stopped
shipping stock to points any distance
outside of the large cities and ranch­
men who can get into Havana come
every night. Americans who have in­
vested money are urging the military
authorities to put small garrisons in
all the towns. The feeling outside Ha­
vana is growing stongei every day
that a permanent military force or an­
nexation is the only thing that will re­
build the country.
Kansas City, June 12.—Forty-eight
passengers were more or less seriously,
three perhaps fatally injured by the de­
railment of train No. 4, soulj* bound
on the Kansas City, Pittsburg & Gulf
railroad, two miles south of Gianview,
Mo., at 9:30 last night. The injured
were brought to this city this morning
and the seriously hurt weie taken to
St. Joseph’s hospital and others to the
Savoy hotel. Those considered fatally
injured are Mrs. C. B. Chandler, Jua-
don, Mo.; A. J. Gorgnesou, news
agent, Kansas City; G. 1. Crawford,
Drexel, Mo. Nearly all the injured
ure Missouri people.
The wrecked train left Kansas City
last night at 8 o’clock. Two miles
south of Kansas City, the train was
derailed by spreading rails, tlietraik
having been damaged by recent severe
rains. The smoker which contained
most of the injured, and the chair car
immediately following, were turned on
their side into a ditch. The Pullman
left the track, but remained upright.
The engine and combination baggage
and mail ear remained on the track.
The accident occurred during a
heavy downpour of rain. The crew
went to work with a will to rescue pas­
Women and chihlien were
dragged fiom the windows of the chair

The porter of this car earned great
praise by his presence of mind in cut­
ting a hole through the roof, quench­
ing the liie and rescuing several women
in imminent danger.
In the smoker, which was well
filled, the passengers were compelled to
crawl cautiously the full length to the
rear door to escape, exit through the
broken windows was dangerous, the
darkness making it impossible to Bee a

was in the woods, and there was no

Frightful Stories Couie From the City
of San Ning.
Vancouver, B. C., June 9.—Accord­
ing to advices brought by the steamer
Empress of Japan, frightful stories of
the plague come from San Ning, while
Canton and Fatshan are reported
“bad.” A Hong Kong paper says:
"The city of San Ning might cor­
rectly be named ‘the city of death.’
The plague is raging with special viru­
lence, and carrying off its victims in
laige numbers. Shops and dwelling
houses aie closed, and their inhabit­
ants have fled into the country carry­
ing the infection with them. Busi­
ness is paralyzed. The streets are
reeking with filth, and all drains are
choked with i ubbisli.

Otis Severely Criticises Schurman*« Fol-
icy—Reason for Dewey’s Departure.
Washington, June 10.—Piesident J.
G. Schurman, of the Philippine com­
mission, will resign on his return to
the United States, because of friction
between himself and General Otis.
Admiral Dewey hastened his depar­
ture fiom Manila, it is said, because of
friction in the commission. He had
steadfastly declined to leave his pest
before, and his determination to return
was sudden.
The president today received a cable­
gram from General Otis, in which he
severly criticised President Schurman’s
policy, and put himself on record as
opposed to President Schurman longer
interfering with the campaign in the
Philippines. He said Schurman does
not comprehend the situation. While
Professor Worcester and Colonel Denby
are in accord with the commanding
general, President Schurman has per­
sisted in adopting a course which they
did not approve.
The president will uphold General
The friction was caused bv

Washington, June 12.—The solu­
tion of the problem of how to reinforce
General Otis without calling for volun­
teers or reducing below the danger line
the reserve force in the United States,
was reached at a meeting of the cabinet
today. Attorney-General Griggs an­
nounced his opinion that the army re­
organization bill, fixing the maximum
strength of the army at 65,000 men,
did not include the enlistel force of
the hospital corps, and the regular
army can be increased by that number.
As the enlisted hospital corps aggre­
gate 2,000 men, the opinion of the at­
torney-general gives that many more
men to the regular army for .Manila.

to Anger Thein.
New Yoik, June 12.—The Rev. Al­
fred de Barritt, who four months ago
founded the Congregational church in
the city of Havana, 1ms returned to
this coqntry for aid in his religious
and educational work in Cuba. Dr. de
Barritt spoke today about present con­
ditions in Cuba and the possibility of
an outbreak against the Americans.
“If this occurs,” he said, “it will
be the fault of the Americans. The
Cubans aie a peaceful people, but they
are also proud and sensitive, and many
things have been done recently to anger
them. The Cubans feel that they are
being treated very much as though they
had been conquered by Us. At any
rate, the Washington authorities should
do away with the present military gov­
ernment. It is worse than unneces­
sary; it is doing an immense deal of
harm. A great many of the Ameircan
officers do not like Cubans aud don’t
scruple to let this be known, liow
can you expect the Cubans to . like
them? Geneial Brooke and General
Lee are liked and trusted, but their in­
fluence for good is nullified by the at­
titude of other officers.
"The payment of the Cuban troops
and requiring them to lay down their
arms was a mistake. The disarming
was a great humiliation to the men,
and the first thing a good many of them
did with their »75 each was to buy
new guns and machetes. There is as
vet no distinct idea in the minds of
the majority of people as to what they
really want, whether annexation or in­
dependence. But they obtain their
ideas of the United States government
from the American officers aud these
ideas are not favorable.”

To Control the Market.
There are negotiations ou foot at
Vancouver, B. C., for a very large beef
deal, which, it said, may result in a
oombiue and a subsequent rise in
prices. The sale will affect Victoria
and Vancouver, and will tend to bring
the meat business of both cities under
the control ot one o impany. The i ead
of the alleged negotiations is P. Burns,
whose headquarters are at Nelson, B.
C. It is stated by business men who
are on the inside of these iieogtiatiuii9
that it is the intention of Mr. Burns to
control the market of the coast.
Shortage of Tin.
A new phase in the salmon-cannin;
operations has just cropped up at Van­
couver, B. C., and may result in a
complication of affairs which was un­
looked for. Every indication points to
the run of sockeyes being large, but if
it is, the canuers will be unable to cope
with it, owing to the shortage of tin­
plate. Not a single box of tin plate
can be found on the Pacific coast.
Across the line it has been very scarce,
and the market is now depleted.
