RocKroiti), III., Juuo 14. At least half a
million dollars' worth of property was destroyed
In this city and vicinity last night. Never since
1S57, when the watois rose, and oveiwhclmcd
nearly all the city of Rock ford, has such a dis
astrous Hood visited this section as that of last
evening. For three hours the lain fell in tor
leuts, vivid lightning played and following each
Hash camepeals of thunder. The stoim com
menced at 8 o'clock and in a surpiisingly
shoit time every street was a tuibulent
liver. The crceeks swelled, and. in a moment
devastating iloods were sweeping through the
Kent and Keith Creek valleys. Each creek
drains an immense area of territory, and from
every side came contributions to the wateis,
until the creeks had become destructive tor
1 ents. The banks of the creeks were powerless
to confine the mad waters, and they spread over
the low lands, filling cellars and creeping up
into first stories of residences, driving the occu
pants of houses from their beds. While the fire
department and police wcie woiking in Wood
luff's addition it waspexceived that people liv
ing around. Kent's Creek weic in distress. A
ljoat was loaded into the patrol wagon and was
soon at the water's edge. On Cedar stieot the
scene was awful. Men, women, and children
were out in the lain, many seeping and wiing
ing their hands, and all excited. It was a min
iature Johnstown Hood and somewhat similai
in many lespects. Bcfoie the people weic
haidly aware of it the watei came lushing down
the cieek and ciept into their homes, chiving
families out into the darkness and
rain. The Majoi's paity did some valiant
work in taking the people fiom their homes. All
the lower parts of the city were Hooded and
hundreds of people leudeicd homeless. The
spectacle this morning piesented a scene of
desolation and. ruin. The Steele of the Mil
waukee road presents the worst appearance.
For nearly half a mile the hack has been lifted
bodily and canied from thirty to forty feet to
the east. The rails under Ihe caisaie twisted
and bent into achclc. All the railway com
panies suffer heavily and eveiy bridge over
Kent and Keith cieeks was swept away.
Joliet, III., June 14. The heaviest and most
damaging rain ever known heie fell steadily
all last night in torrents, commencing with a
deluging water-spout, which completely inun
dated the northern, eastern, and southern por
tions of the city. This moraine people in the
southern portion of the city moved out In boats.
Out-houses are floating around, and men and
boys are sailing about on rafts and in boats.
Ten Persons Hurt in a Smash-Up in North

mail tiain on the Richmond and Danville Rail
load, which left heie at 4:25 yesterday after
noon, was derailed two miles west of Marshal.
Ten persons were hurt, some very seriously.
Information of the disaster is meagre, owing
to the reticence of the raihoad authorities. A
special train, conveying surgeons, has gone
from this place to the scene of the accident.

" Christopher Oolumhus."
A large audience greeted tho first production
of "Christopher Columbus; or, The Discoveiy
of America," at this theatio last Wednesday
evening, The success of tho play was assured
after the first scene, and became more pio
nounced as tho performance progressed, until
the enthusiasm of tho audience becamo un
bounded. Tho play succeeded because it was
well written, was a literaiy treat, was interest
ing at all times and exciting In places, was
highly dramatic, wa6 sparkling with comedy,
aud was well staged. Tho acting deserves
special mention. Mr. Edmund Shaftesbury and
Mi6s Maudo Beckwltk were tho stars, assuming
the difllcult roles of Columbus and Beatrix hi
a most satisfactory manner. Tho other charac
ters wero well enacted, especially Bobadilla by
Mr. Richard Raymond, and Wanita by Miss Ada
L. Tounsend. Tho comedy of the latter was
delightfully pleasing, aud she received an

THE AQUEDUCT TUNNELi.
Gen. Casey Tolls the SVuiato "What It alight
Cost to Complete It.
The auswer of Gen. Casey, Chief of Engineers,
to a lesolutlon of inquiry adopted by the Senate
some days ago, respecting tho Washington
Aqueduct, was laid before that body yesterday.
The tunnel, as will bo remembered, was being
constructed to connect tho reservoirs, and thus
inciease the water supply of the city. An in
vestigation, after moie than two millions had
been spent on it, lcvealed the fact that, owing
to the failure of the engineer in chaigc to exer
cise the necessary supci vision, the construction
was so faulty that work was stopped.
Gen. Casey says it is feasible to complete the
tuuuel according to the oiigiual plan, but
he lecommends that a test bo flist
made, coveilng a peilod of nine months or a
year, to detei mine whether or not the leakage
of water into or fiom the tunucl is sufficient to
be a source of impunty or danger gicat enough
to make its successful use questionable.
To complete the tunnel, Gen. Casey says,
would require $500,000; to complete the lcser
voir, $110,000; total, $G40,000. Of this amount
$3G2,027 is now available.
To put a three-foot it on pipe through tho
tunnel would cost, Gen. Casey says, $04ii,300.
Besides the objection of increased costtheie
is also that of inexpediency in using pipe at
the pressure to which it would be subjected and
the depth at which it must be placed.

Tho Question Hoeidcd at a Blf? Planting or
the Club Last Night An Animated,
Hut fiood-Tcinpored Debate llcfoio tho
Mr. John L. Sullivan will not spar with Mr.
Joe Latinon for tho edification of the members
of the Columbia Athletic Club on Tuesday
evening next. This important question was
decided last night at a meeting which was at
tended by about tluee bundled members of the
club. It was a question which had agitated
the membeis for a couple of days to an extent
which no other question had agitated them
since the magnificent new club-house was
opened In a blaze of glory. As with
nearly all other questions, theie wero two sides
to it, and the members wero pretty evenly
divided, pro and con. Scdeep was the Interest
aroused that scores of members who had not
been In the club-house since the opening recep
tion made it their business to attend the meet
ing called for that night to speak and vote for
or against the appearance of Mr. Sullivan. The
more elderly membeis, who arc seldom seen
there, were iu foice at tho meeting, and, as a
mle, it is said, they voted to forego the pleasure
of John L.'s appearance.
The meeting lasted about two hours, and
while the debate ou tho question was lively, it
at no time became acrimonious or ill-tempered.
Some amusing and impassioned (lights of
oratoiy were Indulged In on both sides, but
when the lesult of the vote was announced the
defeated side accepted it with good nature, and
there is no danger, all friends of tho club will
heai with Dleasuic, that the haimony of the or
ganization will be distuibed in the least by the
Theie was a lively exchange of opinion be
foie President Hood rapped for older, but
when the gavel fell eveiy "one quieted down to
await developments. After a tew pralimlnaiy
lcmaiks fiom Mi. Hood, Secretary Howard
Peiry took the floor and i elated how the invita
tion came to be extended to Sullivan by the
board of governors. From the statement it
appealed that on Tuesday Sullivan anil his
tiainer, Barnett. wero in this city, eu route
home from Pittsbuig. The champion was seen
at Cliainbeilain's by a number of membeis of
the club, and after a pleasant chat the subject
of coming to Washington to give a sparring ex
hibition was bioacheil, and Sullivan agieed to
do it. When this was made known to "the gov
einois they quickly met and, without a dis
sentiug voice, agieed to ask him to come, be
lieving fully that it would be a tieat to the sev
eial bundled members who take interest in the
manlv art. Secretary Perry made a very good
speech and his points in defense of the'gover
Following tho speech of Mr. Berry, there
were about thirty otheis, on botii sides. The
debate was cairled ou in a spiiited manner,
though the be6t of feeling picvailed, and
nothing was said that leflccted on the gover
nors. The following lesolution was Anally in
tioduced: 'Hesohed, That while we believe that the
action of the board of governois in the matter
of the pioposed Sullivan exhibition was
actuated by a desire to promote the best inter
est of the club, nevertheless we believe that it
is inadvisable that nermission bv given for this
This was adopted by a vote of 157 to 134, the
announcement being hailed with cheers by
those who were an ti-Sullivan.
Of course, it is recognised that this action
places the board of governois in a 6omewliat
embarrassing position, and naturally there wero
conjectures as to the possibility of resigna
tions. It is believed, however, that the goverc
ois will take a sensible view of the actiou of
the club aud let the matter drop, as it seems
clear that the sense of tho meeting was in no
wise hostile to them. The governors made a
mistake, with the best intentions in the world,
thiough not fully understanding the sentiment
of a large number of membeis.

As an eye-witness I know that lecent

convention. Excepting a fov gentlemen,
