A Disastrous Cloudburst in
The Village of Loveland Swept

the World's Fair.
Sad Drowning of Two Young Ladies in
Colorado—Vandalism at Har
Coßtfdtt Bluffs, lowa, June 2.—A
special to the Nonpareil from the Mis
souri valley of lowa, tells of the almost
total destruction of the village of Love
land, yesterday, by a cyclone burst or
waterspout. Loveland is located in a
gully in the Boyer valley. A terrific
storm passed over the valley, and near
the upper end a cloudburst occurred, the
water sweeping down through the fated
village, leaving hardly a house intact,
and destroying several lives. Among
the bodies identified so far are those of
Mrs. Sayles and son. One family passed
all night in a tree top, and were rescued
this morning. Several persons are miss
ing, and their bodies have not yet been
found ; tliey are supposed to have been
carried down the valley by the water.
Advices received late tonight from the
scene of tbe Loveland disaster, indicate
that the first reports over-estimated its
magnitude. Mrs. Sayles is the only per
son known to have been lost, so far. The
village is a small one, and the pecuni
ary damage, therefore, is not very large.
Tbe river has subsided to its usual chan
nel, but all day's search failed to reveal
any more bodies.

Washington, June 2. —Tbe report ex
tensively circulated that a lawyer had
unearthed a decision made by the
United States supreme court a few years
ago, in which the court took exactly op
posite ground to that held in the "orig
inal package" decision, turns out to be
incorrect. There is a very obvious dis
tinction between these two cases. The
case decided several years ago arose out
of the seizure by a state officer of a cargo
of coal brought into Louisiana by a ship ;
but before it was taxed, part of it had
been sold, so it was no longer an original
package. Moreover, it is erroneous tbat
the supreme court appears to have over
looked its decision in this case. The
Louisiana case was brought to tlie atten

THE HARDIE MURDER
General Grierson's Theory
Indians Proved to Have Been
Their Trail Followed to tlie Mexi
Signs That Seem to Indicate That They
Were Indians From San Carlos
Associated Press Dispatches. I
San Francisco, June 2.—The Chroni
cle's Tombstone, Arizona, special says :
The assertion of General Grierson that
no Indians were out, and that Hardie
had not been killed by Apaches, was
disposed of today by the arrival of
Lieutenant Fitch from the Mexican
line. Fitch said: "I was ordered to
Rucker canon after Hardies murder,
and arrived there to find that Lieuten
ant McGrath, of Bowie, had been there
before, and was on the trail of the
Apaches. I followed him, and camped
the same night with him, near Lei lie's
ranch. Next day we came up to a dead
mare and colt. The latter had been
skinned and all the flesh packed off.
Both animals had been stabbed to death,
no doubt to save ammunition. Nine
animals had been stolen. We followed the
trail to within four miles of the line,
where a heavy sand storm covered it.
Remained there till yesterday morning,
when orders came from Bowie by helio
graph signals for Lieutenant McGrath
and myself to return to our posts. There
is no question about the murderers of
Hardie being Indians. The trail indi
cated that there were at least five of
them. They have gone into Mexico. I
do not know why we were ordered back
to our quarters."
A special to the Chronicle from Pha;
nix, Arizona, says: A report received
here today from Tombstone says that
Friday night between 12- and 1
o'clock fires were seen in the
Whetstone mountains, which, from
tbe way they were handled, were
undoubtedly Indian signal fires, prob
ably to communicate with another band
in the Chiricahuas. Tbe fires were on
the highest peak of the mountains, and
were allowed to blaze for a short time,
when they were suddenly extinguished.
It is evident that this is a fresh band,
direct from the reservation, who also
will make their way into Sonora on the,
other side of the Huachucas, and when*
across the line, join those already there.
James Price arrived in Tucson last
evening from the eastern part of Cochise
county. On the Friday preceding the
killing of Hardie, he struck the trail of
the band that did the killing, and
the trail, instead of leading to
ward the reservation, was lead
ing away from it, and toward
Sonora, snowing that the murderers
were not the band that bad been raiding
along the border, but a fresh lot direct
from the reservation. After killing
Hardie. they stole nine head of horses
from Frank Leslie, an old rancher. Will
iamßeynold,who had charge of the ranch,
missing, the horses, started in search
of them, and found an Indian trail,
which be followed some distance, com
ing to a place where they killed a colt
and roasted it. At this place was a small
fire, and judging from it and the size of
the trail, it is presumed that there were
at least six Indians in the party. They
abandoned at the ranch an Indian pony
broken down, which is another evidence
that they were direct from the reserva
It is also reported that Indian bucks
have been seen in the middle oi a pass
of the Dragoon mountains.
It is further reported that the Indians
have fathomed the mystery of heliog
raphy, and wit h looking glasses are using
the stations for their ow.x purpose, and
to mislead the troops, thus further com
plicating matters. It is possible, how
ever, that it is American bandits who
have mastered the heliograph system,
and are using the knowledge for their
WITHOUT HIS PRISONER.
An Officer's Excuse For Lotting a Crimi
San Francisco, June 2. —A dispatch
from Portland a few weeks ago stated
that Fritz Schwartz, alias F. Stolnay,
had been arrested in that city by Gov
ernment Detective William Baumgart
ner. It was charged tbat he deserted
from the United States army in San
Francisco two years ago, and went to
San Diego. A few months later he re
turned to San Francisco and married
Miss Emily Jacobowitz, lived with his
wife a short time and with her money
opened wine rooms on Mission street.
Last December he sold out and went to
Portland, leaving a number of creditors
here. Detective Baumgartner has re
turned from Portland, but did not bring
his prisoner with him. It seems that
the detective, besides drawing pay from
the government, has been liberally paid
by the wife. On reaching here without
his prisoner, the detective told the lady
that after he had effected his capture,
friends of his prisoner bound and gagged
himself and set his prisoner, Schwartz
or Stolnay, at liberty.

THE OAKLAND DISASTER.
THE CORONER'S JURY RETURNS A
Engineer Dunn Held Responsible and
Charged with Manslaughter—The Rail
road Company Censured.
San Francisco, June 2.—The coroner's
inquest in the matter of the railroad
catastrophe in Oakland on Memorial
day, began this afternoon. Charles
O'Brien, fireman of the wrecked train,
was the first witness. He testified that
he had never seen Engineer Dunn in
liquor. The drawbridge through which
the train went at the time of the acci
dent could be seen from witness's side of
the engine at the shipyard, and he felt
sure it was closed when the train left
there. The engineer was on the train
when witness jumped, which was not
until the engine went down. He had
been running with tlie train only'occa
sionally, and could not say at what dis
tance the danger signal could be discov
ered. The engine had hardly any speed
on when they went through the draw,
and if they could have run ten yards
further the train would have been
Bridge-tender Dunlap testified that the
train was not in view when he opened
the draw, though it could have been seen
at tbe mole. He thought it was coming
at a high rate of speed about 150 yards
distant. He had been on the bridge
about fifteen months, and thought the
engineer could see the signal about 300
feet away. He was closing the draw
when the accident occurred. The signal
flag (which was produced in evidence)
was placed about 2«0 feet from the edge
of the draw. Tbe engine approached
the draw at the rate of five or seven
miles an hour. Tbe bridge was within
sixteen feet of being closed.
Conductor L. A. Davis testified that he
knew nothing about the draw being
open, until the engine and car went into
the water. He did not think the train
was running more than two miles an
hour at the time.
The jury rendered a verdict late to
night, and found that the victims of the
accident came to their death by drown
ing, caused by criminal negligence on
the part of Engineer Dunn. The ver
dict further recites: "We find
Engineer Dunn guilty of man
slaughter. We also find that
the railway company does not take
sufficient precaution to signal trains
when approaching the drawbridge."
Funeral* of the Victim*.
Services in memory of the victims of
the Oakland disaster were held in this
city today. The solemn high requiem
mass was celebrated for the repose of
the soul of Mrs. Mary B. O'Connor.
Similar services were held at St. John's
church in memory of the Kearnes sisters,
and at St. Dominick's church in memory
of the late assistant chief wharfinger,
Martin Kelly.. The funerals of some of
the victims were held in Oakland yester
day. All were largely attended.

He TelU a Strange Story About the
Murder of OouftTe.
New York, June 2.—The Courier dee
Elals Unis has from Havana an inter
view with Murderer Eyraud. He said
in part: "One morning in speaking with
Gabrielle, I told her I intended going to
Germany or some other country to work.
Gabrielle begged me to waite a while,
on the assurance that she had some
thing in view which she intended to un
dertake. She made an appointment for
me for 6 o'clock in the evening, and I
was at the rendezvous promptly. She
handed me a key leading to a secret
door to her house, telling me to return
at 8 o'clock."
"But she has declared that you killed
Gouffe," interposed the reporter.
"I never killed him," replied Eyraud.
"When I left the house at 8 o'clock I
heard a great deal of noise and laughter.
Bottles of champagne were being opened.
Pretty soon Gabrielle came to look for
me. She gave me some keys and sent
me to find some papers belonging to
Gouffe. I could not find them,
and, hearing a noise, left Gouffe's
house and returned to Gabrielle.
I looked everywhere, I told her, but
without success. I could not find the
papers. Then Gabrielle, raising her
arm in the air, said to me: 'Look.' I
turned my eyes to where she pointed
and saw Gouffe suspended by tbe neck,
with his tongue hanging out of his
"'Who strung him up there?' I
"'I will tell you later,' replied Gab
rielle. 'In the meantime, help me to
put him in a trunk.'
"It is impossible to describe," con
tinued Eyraud, "how difficult it is to
place a dead body in a bag. We cut
down the body of Gouffe and tried in
vain to place him there. We then raised
his body in the air, and when it
was suspended it was much easier for
us to put him in tbe bag. It was still a
difficult operation to put the sack in the
trunk. We lowered the body gradually
until we got it in a horizontal position
above the trunk. On the sides his legs
and arms rested. I pushed him into the
bottom by pressing on him until the
body touched the bottom of the trunk,
but his legs and head remained out
side. Then Gabrielle proposed to
cut the head off in order to close
the trunk. I continued in my efforts,
and using extra force succeeded'in push
ing the head, inside. We locked the
trunk, and Gabrielle told me she would
take care of it. We placed it near his
bed and I returned to his house to
"And you did sleep?" asked the re
"Soundly," was Eyraud's reply. "I
was very much tired by the work I had
done. I then returned to Gabrielle's
house, and we took tickets for a station
near Lyons. We carried the trunk
to a neighborhood where Gabrielle
was acquainted, and left it
there. We then took extra
tickets for Marseilles. In the latter
town we purloined 7,000 francs, of which
2,000 belonged to an Englishman who
admired Gabrielle. Then we returned
to Paris. In regard to Gouffe there was
some prospect of getting 5,000 francs out
of him, but there M as the hitch."
"And what about this accomplice to
whom Gabrielle refers in Paris?" asked
"About that I cannot talk at present.
