ISrECIAL TELEGBAM TO THE DISFATCH.1
San Francisco, September 18. Prov
ince Kii, in the southwestern part of Japan,
has been visited by the greatest disasters in
the history of the country. Probably more
than 15,000 people have been killed. Sev
eral towns have been wiped out completely,
and others have been nearly demolished.
The catastrophe was occasioned by the
floods in the western partof the province, and
by the crumbling of a mountain which
buried six villages under a huge mass of
rocks and earth.
In eastern districts the early part of Au
gust was remarkable for its rains, and the
rapid rise of the rivers soon became alarm
ing to the people along the banks. The.
Kinogawa river, a stream over 100 miles in
length, broke near the town of Yokohama
on the 19th instant, and
A MOUNTAIN OF WATER
like that which swept through Conemaugh
valley when the dam above Johnstown
burst, rushed out upon the fields and towns,
wrecking houses, bridges, fences, temples
and all things in its path. In this district
200 bouses wer- carried away and 5,000
ruined by the water leaving 30,000 people
dependent upon local officials for food.
Lower down, the embankments of the
Hidakagawn werealsiTTlestroyed, flooding
the cultivated fields and adjacent towni
Out of GO houses at Wakanomura hut two
remain standing, and more than 50 people
lost their lives. An official of the Nishi
mura district office who arrived at Waka
yama on the evening of August 22 reports
that at about 4 P. m. on ths 19th an inroad
of water took place at Sanabemachi, and in
a few moments the floors of buildings in the
vicinity were covered. Many houses in tbe
district were carried way, and about 300
persons are said to have lost their lives.
SCOEES OF TOWNS OBLITERATED.
All villages within an extent often miles
are more or less submerged. In Cboraiho
mura several hundred honses were washed
away, leaving only 11 buildings standing.
Many persons are reported to have lost their
lives in this district also. The volume of
the river Kinokuni, an adjacent stream,
swelled to an extraordinary extent, the rise
being in some places from 13 to 18 feet above
the normal level. No bridge over the
stream could withstand the force of this
The river steadily rose from about 6
o'clock in tne evening, until at last, near
midnight, it began to overflow the embank
ments, and about 4 miles from the city
of Wakayama the bancs at the village of
Iwabashi were washed away. Immediately
the village and its whole neighborhood, in
cluding about 48 other hamlets, were
covered bv the raging waters. The depth
of the flood is stated to have been from 5
to 15 feet. The neighborhood of Osaka has
also suffered very severely.
THOUSANDS LEFT DESTITUTE.
From a telegram received by the Home
Offi:e from the Governor of Osaka it ap
pears that in the districts under the laiter's
' authority relief is being given to several
thousands. QJhe embankments on the Yodo
gawn and Inkedapaigawn were broken at
. several places on the 21st ult, and consider
able damage was caused to farms, while
many houses were swept away or otherwise
injured. In Hongumura 180 houses were
washed away and 30 persons drowned.
In Higashipmurogori and Neship-Maro-gori
several hundred "louses were demol
ished and considerable loss ot life is re
ported. In Hidakagon 380 houses were car
ried away and 70 houses were more or less
damaged, while 120 persons lost their lives
and 50 others received more or less severe
injuries. About 5,000 persons narrowly es
OTHEK DISTRICTS DEVASTATED.
A. telegram from Wakayama dated the
25th of August, states that many houses in
Tschigawara and Shikiya (Higasha Mura
gari), which are situated close to Kumana
gowa, were carried away and many lives
lost. All the buildings of the Knmano
shrine, except one or two small temples,
were swept away, but the sacred image was
saved. According to the report from Je
xtinu, in Higashi Muragari, about one
fourth of the buildings there (over 500) and
100 persons were swept away. The Hikawga
rofe 28 feet above the ordinary level, and
villages close to the river were flooded, in
consequence of which about 150 honses were
washed away, many persons being drownad.
Seventy-eight honses and the Miwake
police station at Shusan were also carried
away. Owing to several landslips, which
occurred close to the source of the Hida
kagawn, a vast number of trees, some of
which were very large, were uprooted and
swept into the fields where several thousands
are now lying.
STARVATION NOW THREATENS.
Inquiries as to the conditian of the various
villages along the river have not been com
pleted. In Coto there are still two feet of
muddy water. About 1,200 houses of the
villages close to theTomitagawa were swept
away. Other villages suffered much loss by
the floods, and (he number of dead cannot
be accurately determined, but for the prov
ince of Kii, it will not fall below 10,000.
Bloated bodies and wreckages of all
description covered the fields for miles
around, and it will be months before the
survivors can proceed with work. The loss
in money is roughly estimated at $6,000,000.
Belief has been Eent to the ruined districts,
but inadequate facilities for collecting and
distributing provisions will make the suf
fering intense, and in the outlying districts
many will die from starvation.
MOUNTAINS CRUMBLE AND FALL.
The same rise which ruined the western
part of the Province of Kii by flood also
wrought a most singular and ruinous dis
aster in the eastern section of one village.
The Kansei Mppo, published atOsakagvsa,
in a clear account says: "Since the 18th
inst Totsuguawa-Go district has been vis
ited with very heavy rains, and at dawn on
the 19th it was discovered that the rivers
were rising rapidly. People in lhe neigh
borhood of Amano Gawa, fearing an inun
dation, made preparation for the emergency.
"While they were thus employed the
mountains suddenly crumbled away, ob
structing communication between the
Tsujido-Mura and Sakamoto-Mura, and the
waters from tbe rivers, which rose in conse
quence, covered the houses in Tsukido
Mura, the people fleeing to the temple
situated on an elevated piece of ground.
There, however, they were not fated to be
safe, as Sugi-Tama, which is situated at the
back of the temple, suddenly came down
on the village in an avalanche, burying
the entire village under ground, only half
of the temple being left."
WHOLE VILLAGES HELPLESS.
A special correspondent who made bis
way laboriously over the ruins'says: "The
villages of Nagato-No-Mau, Tanise-Mura,
TJvenoike-Mura and Hayashi-Mura, along
the course of the Totsugawawoc. were all
buried underground by the crumbling away
of the TJmiyabara -Mountain. All the vil
lages of Ui, Nagatouo, Numata-Hara and
Asahi, at the entrance of theTotsugawa-Go,
face each other and can be seen across the
river, but there being no boats between
these places no help could be rendered. The
villages of Uyeuo-Chi, Takatsu, Kawatsu
and several others were all either swept
away or buried under ground.
"The number of deaths in these villages
has not yet been ascertained, but, as all out
lets were blockaded, the number must have
been considerable. The villages of Kasea
haya, Uchihara, Takigawa, Xojiri, Yama
saki and Taana were also entirely swept
away or buried by the overflow of the rivers
and'the crumbling mountains. The damage
along the lower course of the river and the
villages skirting it has not yet been ascer
tained, but it is supposed that out of 50 vil
lages, comprising Totsugawa-Go,
ALL HAVE SUFFERED
more or less from disaster, and it is a
mooted point if one has escaped. In all
these villages, (arms, rice fields and houses
are supposed to have suffered. The exact
number is not vet known, but the district
officials place the number of deaths at be
tween 3.000 and 5,000. The colleries at Ta-tezato-Mura,
Yoshino-Gori, also caved in,
and 40 miners are missing. In Shiono-Mura
a landslip occurred, crushing to death eight
persons, beside which 40 are missing who
are supposed to have been buried alive.
"While the-extent of the territory is not
so great the suffering in this district is ap
palling. It is impossible to furnish aid to
many, and they must die of hunger and
thirst. The losses in money will never be
known, as families and even towns have
been wiped from the earth, with no sur
vivor to tell the tale.
NINETY MILES OF WRECKAGE.
"As an instance of the disaster, it may be
mentioned that the Portuguese gunboat,
Eio Lima, on her voyage along the coast,
was greatly obstructed by wreckage, roofs
and timbers of houses, etc, so that on sev
eral occasions she had to stop to prevent
damage to her screw. This debris extended
at least 90 miles along the coast. These are
the greatest disasters Japan has known for
centuries. and further details can only
bring stories of more desolation and more
suffering than has been related."
Another telegram from Wakayama, dated
August 26, announces that according to in
vestigations made up to that date the total
number of houses carried away in Nishi
Murogori was 1,092, while 508 others were
demolished and 440 houses were more or less
damaged. The number of deaths there

the Lives of Several People.
ISrECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1
New York, September 18. A wild-looking
man created great excitement to-day,
appearing on the street in ragged clothes,
with one foot bare, and rushing after car
riages and peering into them. He sprang
upon the steps of a Fifth-avenue stage and
looked curiously in at one of the windows.
Belore anyone within had time to observe
the threatening look on his face the man
had dropped to the ground. He approached
other carriages and stages in like manner,
frightening women and annoying men.
Policeman Horn saw him finally and saw,
too. that he had a pair of shears onen in
one hand and some sort of sharp instrument
in the other.
After a struggle the police overpowered
him. The man said that he was Thomas
Maguire, and that he had landed from Ire
land only three days ago. Alter having
fallen on the pavementand prayed, Macuire
was got into a grocer's wjgon and carried to
the station. On the way he told Policeman
Horn that he had meant to find some one on
Filth avenue who was rich, kill him and
take his money. Maguirewas a woe-begone
spectacle. His account of himself was in
coherent. Justice Gorman committed him
for examination as to his sanity.

Cleveland, September 18. The steam
yacht Leo left the port of Lorain, 28 miles
west of here, for this port on Sunday after
noon, between 2 and 3 o'clock, having on
board the following named gentlemen: John
B. Tunte, I. b. Lawler, T. P. Ettter, Benja
min Kline, S. D. Knight, D. A. Dawler,
Captain Sam Boot, Fred Pelowand an engi
neer from Detroit, whose name is unknown.
Nearly all of them were prominent and well
knownbusiness men of Lorain. The weather
was fair and the party of excursionists
looked for a pleasant run down to Cleveland
with the intention of returning by rail in
The yacht had been purchased on
Wednesday at Detroit for ?550. It was the
intention of the purchasers, three of whom
were among the party of excursionists, to
use her for pleasure purposes at Lorain.
She was of but 17 tons burthen, and was un
fitfora heavy sea. A second object in
bringing her here was to have her undergo
inspection at the hands of the local Gov
ernment inspectors. About 5 o'clock in the
afternoon a stiff blow came up from the
westward and the yacht was seen to with
stand it off Avon point, a few miles down
the shore, by a fisherman at work in the
neighborhood. The weather moderated
somewhat and the excursionists, after put
ting out airain lor Cleveland, weie met a
short distance east of Kock river by Dan P.
Eels' yacht Winnifred, about 7 o'clock in
the evening. Captain Williams; of the
Winnifred, says he saluted them and re
ceived an answer with cheers from the
party. The weather was moderate then.
Shortly afterward the wind shifted to the
Northeast, and it is thought that with this
unfortunate change the Lorain people lost
their lives. The shore to Eocky river, with
the exception of butone short strip of beach,
is a mass of din's and is very dangerous.
Nothing wasjheard of the yacht until this
morning, when the bodies of Eitterand
Lawler were found by the life saving crew
floating in the lake. The remaining
bodies are being searched for, but the work
is slow and dangerous on account of the
roughness of Lake Erie.

ISFECIAL TELEGBAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Dubuque, September 18. A sensational
elopement occurred here to-day. William
M. Bradley, Jr., son of one of the leading
real estate agents and capitalists of Dubuque
and a member of the wholesale firm of
Glasser & Bradley, quietly went to West
Union to-day with Miss Lydia
Withers and the two were mar
ried. Miss Withers is a young
brunette, handsome and attractive, the
daughter of a widow residing at Turkey
Creek Junction Some time ago the firm ot
Glasser & Bradley opened a rigar stand in
the Lorimer Honse and Miss Withers was
placed in charge. Young Bradley became
enamored and longed to make her his wife.
The girl was willing, and so was her mother,
but both knew that Bradley's parents, who
are exceedingly aristocratic, would never
give their .consent, so the elopement was
planned and the wedding took place.
It has proved to be a great sensation in
society circles, for Bradley moved in the
highest sets and was regarded by the mar
riageable ladies of Dubuque as a valuable
catch. His firings known all over Iowa.
The young lady is comparatively nnknown
here, but is respectable and worthy of the
man she has wedded.

Washington, September 18. General
Goff, of West Virginia, arrived to-day, and
this evening a number of his friends met
him at the Ebbitt Honse, and talked over
the prospects of the appointment of Attor
ney General Miller to the Supreme Bench
and Goff to the Attorney General's office.
It is said that the power that is opposing
Goff is Steve Elkins, who has taken it into
his head to run West Virginia politics, and
whose proximity to the President at Deer
Park gives him great influence in that
quarter. This influence, with that of the
Wood faction in Indiana, which wants
Judge Wood elevated to the Supreme
Bench, may result in a final deathblow to
thcarrangement tor Miller and Goff, which
was positivelv made some time ago.
However, friends of Goff in every part of
the country are advocating his cause, and
of course Miller's also, and the pressure
may be too strong for the President to with
stand. THE FIREMEN 0DT IN FORCE.

rSFECTAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Chicago, September 18. Four jurors
have finally been secured to pass judgment
on the guilt or innocence of ex-Detective
Coughlin and his four colleagues now on
trial lor the murder of Dr. Cronin, Tbey
took the formal oath at 3:45 o'clock this aft
ernoon, and ten minutes later they were es
corted from the jury box into Judge Mc
Connell's private room, where they will be
kept under the surveillance of a bailiff un
til their eight colleagues are found.
The names of the jurors are John Culver,
Charles Hicks, James Pearson and Frank
Hall. All four are Americans. Three of
them came from suburban towns. One hun
dred peremptory challenges were used, over
400 veniremen were examined, and the
county spent nearly $0,000 in securing this
quartet. Pearson is a young farmer, with
bright eyes, but an expressionless face.
Culver is a real estate dealer at Evanston.
He is tall and slender, with a grim melan
choly looking face.
each side is satisfied.
It is said that he has queer opinions
about certain things. Each side thinks it
got the better of the bargain when Culver
was chosen. Hall is a pale faced, slender
draughtsman, who is highly recommended
by his employers. Hicks is as slender and
as pale as Hall. He is a clerk in an insur
ance office in La Salle street. With the ex
ception ot Culver the four men do not ap
pear to be of great depth. Four more men
were held for the night. They wiil proba
bly be dropped to-morrow by the defense.
Eapid progress was made in the examina
tion of veniremen during the four hours and
a half the Court was in session in the after
noon. Judge McConnell dropped a weight
on Attorney Forrest while the latter was
pouring a torrent of psychological questions
upon an innocent-looking juror from the
country. Judge McConnell, growing
weary, said: "Forrest, your questions are
nt'erly inconsistent with human nature."
HIS LACERATED FEELINGS,
Mr. Forrest took this" bard:
around at the loungers grouped about him
and then gracefully fell back into the old
groove about Coughlin and the white horse,
and Burke and the Carlson cottage. There
was another outburst during Mr. Forrest's
examination of venire men. The leader of
the defense was endeavorine to draw from a
juror an admission that he would not -believe
a Clan-na-Gael man in the present
case under oath.
State's Attorney Longenecker madea vig
orous objection to this line of questioning,
on the ground that the State and the Court
were not presumed to know that there would
be Clan-na-Gael witnesses on the stand.
Judge McConnell sided with the public
prosecutor. Mr. JBorrest was badly rattled.
He declared time after time that the de
fense would place Clan-na-Gael men on the
stand, and maintained that his clients
would not get justice if the jury jvere com
posed of men who would place no" credence
in Clan-na-Gael testimony. Judge McCon
nell again ruled that the Clan-na-Gael was
not on trial.
"Then." shouted Mr. Forrest, with out
stretched arms, "then where's my defense?"
Nobody could answer the question, and the
monotonous examination was resumed.
A SENSATIONAL STATEMENT.
The lawyers for the defense claim to be in
possession of -evidence showing that
the murderers of Dr. Cronin were
paid representatives ot the English
Government, who had been duped
by Cronin, who was supposed by the British
authorities to be one of their American
The form this evidence has taken and in
which it will be presented at the trial on
behalf of the defense area number of letters
written by Miss Le Caron, daughter of the
notorious witness in the Parnell case, to her
affianced husband, who is a well known and
prominent young Irish-American of Chi
cago. These letters have been written by
Miss Le Caron from London at brief inter
vals ever since she joined her father in that
city fast winter, after he had appeared as a
witness before the Parnell Commission.
The letters from Miss Le Caron after the
disappearance of Dr. Cronin alluded to
him frequently, and intimated that the
writer knew that the doctor was a victim of
a vile conspiracy, of which she knew the
WARNED BY THE SPY.
But she never gave any detailed account
of the information, which she left to be
inferred she had obtained from her father,
till after the arrest of Coughlin, O'Sullivan
and Beggs. Then she became more definite.
Le Caron, after his arrival in London-, had
warned Cronin, and advised him to save
himself by complying with what was ex
pected of him.
Le Caron was cautious. In hiR letters he
did not indipate from whom this danger to
Cronin was to come. Miss Le Caron, in her
confidential communications to her lover,
was not so discreet. In one of them she
writes: "There is one man who got away
and whom they should have arrested. Why
didn't they arrest Burlingham? They
might have learned agreat deaj from him."
The story outlined in tbe scries.of letters,
of which there are very many, is to the
effect that Le Caron and Burlingham were
both British spies; that Dr Gronin, in his
intimacy with them, soon learned their real
character, and in order to obtain from them
fuller Insight into
THEIR FLANS AND'DUPLICITY
and the designs of the English Govern
ment, he permitted them to think that he
also was venal, and could be hired by their
employers. They made the proposition
that he enter the American branch of the
Secret Service of Spotiand Yard He ap
parently accepted. He obtained, all their
information without giving any in return.
They became suspicious and sought to ob
tain from him certain papers which they
had given him in his supposed character of
spy. He refused to give them up. Mean
while LeCaron was summoned to England
to testify, against Parnell. It was sug
gested to Cronin that he would be called on
later forthe same purpose.
Burlingham. the other representative of
the British service in Chicago, was told to
look out for Cronin and obtain at any price
the documents which would have revealed
the close connection between certain high

The Scotland Yard people grew desperate.
It was resolved to.rob him of the papers,
and it was in that attempt that the Doctor
was killed, the conspirators believing that
he always carried the much wanted papers
on his person. Burlingham, who it is al
leged in these letters should be watched,

In opposition to the above it is claimed
that at the proper stage of the Cronin trial
the prosecution will produce as witnesses'T.
J. Kirby, Thomas Le Caron and Patrick
Coonev. This, it is said, has been made
nossible by the efforts of Messrs. Hvnes and
Mills, or counsel for the State, with the aid
of the Pinkerton detectives, Kirby, as
agent of the British Government, was in
Chicago for months before the murder of
Dr. Cronin, prying into the secrets of the
Clan-na-Gael. He was very successful and
returned to London full of information not
only about the workings of the order, but
with full particulars ot the plot against Dr.
Cronin and the manner in which it was car
LE CAEON AS A WITNESS.
It was the intention of the British au
thorities to put Kirby on the stand" in the
Parnell case, but it was concluded that the
evidence of Le Caron would be strong,
cuuugn, ana mat no good would come ot
disclosing Kirby's identity and the nature
of his errand to America until absolutely
necessary. By keeping Kirby off the stand,
the British authorities would be able to use
him to good advantage in other cases.
After the trial Kirby went to Canada, and
was lost sight of until located a few days
ago by the detectives. He was told what'
was wanted of him, and for a long time re
fused to have anything to do with the case.
iFinally the matter was nut to him in such
a light that he consented to come to Chicago
and appear as a witness for the prosecution
Le Caron has revealed to the American
detectives the names of certain men on
which suspicion has not heretofore rested,
and, like Kirby, will be on hand, ready to
testify when wanted. It may be well to
state that, in order to avoid any mistake
about Kirby and Le Caron showing up
when wanted, they have constant compan
ions in the shape of some of Pinkerton's
most argus-eyed employes.

Bosenburg had been a student at the in

for the ministry. He was very much wor
ried of late about financial and family
affairs, and from letters found on his table
it appears that on Tuesday forenoon he
meant to procure a revolver in Washington,

The letter said that tbe failure would
necessitate tbe postponement of the accom

day. It also said his intention was to go to
Phillipsourg or Easton to procure a pistol.
He went to one of those towns and came
.back this morning on the 8 o'clock train.
On his way to the institute he shopped at a
book store and purchased a copy of a work
on hnman physiology containing
charts ov ins human body,
showing the location of the brain, heart and
other organs. He went to his room in the
institute and wrote several letters to his
parents, to Dr. Whitney, the head of the in
stitute, and others. He wrote one to
the public, wherein he says he will
now make his last prayer and prepare him
self for the deed. He took off his coat and
waistcoat, collar and tie and hung them in
a closet in his room, removed his linen
shirt and then fired the fatal shot, exclaim
ing as he, did so, "Oh I my God I"

Concord, N. H., September 18. Two
little boys, aged 8 and 10 years, made an at
tempt to-day to derail the White Mountain
express because the conductor of a freight
train refused to give them a ride. Their
names are Arthur and Percy Abbott. They
were on their way to Northfield and tried
to steal a ride on the freight, but were put
off at East Concord. They then continued
their journey on foot. As the White
Mountain express, a very fast and heavily
loaded train, was passing south a short
distance above North Concord, it struck
some obstruction on the track. The pas
sengers were badly shaken up and fright
ened. The train was stopped and it was
found that a dozen or more fish plates had
been placed on tbe rails with an evident in
tention to throw the train off. The pieces
ot iron were ground np under the cars tear
ing pieces from the plank flooring.
The boys were detained when they reached
Canterbury by the station agent who
thought they were runaways, and to him
they confessed that they had placed the ob
structions on the track out of revenge for
being put off the freight and intended to
derail the train. The escape of the express
from a terrible casualty was remarkable as
it was going at a high rate of speed.

(SPECIAL TELEOUAK TO THE DISPATCH.1
Lewes, Del., September 18 The wreck
and devastation at the Delaware break
water, the result cf the late gale, have
aroused the Government to the necessity of
erecting in the place of the present
stone pile a structure of sufficient dimen
sions to protect the millions of dollars worth
ol property that annually seek reluge frcm
stcrms. A Government surveyug steamer
has arrived in the harbor for the purpose of
making surveys, preparatory to the erection
of a larger breakwater
The Delaware breakwater was constructed
to furnish a good harbor on a coast which
for abont 300 miles was singularly deficient
in safe anchorage grounds for large vessels
in rough weather. It is about a mile from
the beach, at the mouth of the Delaware
Bay, on the inside of Cape Henlopen. The
surveys by the Government and the evi
dence of the officials of the breakwater show
how utterly inadequate the breakwater has
been for the protection of commerce.

"I have not authorized any statement about
it to be made by auybody, but I take pleasure,
inasmuch as my attention has been called to the
matter, in stating as nearly as lean recall, ex
actly what I did say and what I propose to say
as often as occasion may seem to call for it.
Speaking of the claims of pensioners upon the
Government in my Sprlneneld speech, I stated
that there were two wrongs that should be cor
rected. One was the granting of the miserable
$2 a month pension and tbe other was tbe un
reasonable delay In the bearing of applications.
"I spoke of Corporal Tannor with words of
compliment and regard; as one who bad labored
hard to correct these wrongs, and m that con
nection said L in common with all old soldiers,
regretted to bear of his resignation. I was
pleased, however, to note tbe assurances that
had been given ont that nobody reflected upon
his integrity as a man or as an official; that I
did not know exactly what tbe trouble was
that called for his resignation, but that it had
been hinted that it was due to the fact that he
had been unduly expediting tbe business of
bis office. I said in, that connection I could
not think-the "President had found fault
with him on that account, because he
had told us when he was a candidate
that the claims of pensioners should not be
weighed in an apothecary's scales. This view
of the case appeared to fix the responsibility
for tbe trouble upon a member of the Cabinet
for whom I could not speak, since I had never
heard of him before he was made a member of
the Cabinet, and but very little since except in
connection with bis controversy with the Com
missioner ot Pensions.
"I then proceeded to say that in time, no
doubt, we would know the reason why be bad
resigned, as we were entitled to know It, and
that if there was no other reason than the one

office, no other man could be his successor
