People on the Mexican side in this
town are still alarmed, and many of the
Mexican families sleeo on the United
States side to-night. While everything
seems quiet here now, and nothing
startling occurring, the Mexicans are very
restless and uneasy. The Yaqui tribe is
very powerful and they fear a general up

been many skirmishes between the Yaqui
Indians aud Mexican soldiers in the past
several months that have not been made
public. The Yaquis who live in the
Yaqui River country claim to have
grievances, and have not been in a good

SOUTHERN INDIA FLOODS,
Thousands of People Rendered
Homeless by the Overflow
of the Kistna.
Two Hundred Refugees Go Down in a
Boat That Is Sunk Near
LONDON, Eng.. Ausr. 14.— A dispatch
from Bombay to the News Agency states
that disastrous floods have been caused in
Southern India by the overflowing of the
River Kistna. The damage to property is
immense and thousands of people have
been rendered homeless, their houses
being swept away by the floods. It is
feared that many lives have been lost in
the overflowed district. The water has
■washed out the railway of the Nizam for a
distance of seven miles and it w^ll have to
De almost completely rebuilt.
The worst disaster yet reported in con
nection with the flood was the sinking of
a boat crowded with refugees near Tatta,
a town iiity miles southwest of Hydera
bad. Two hundred persons went down
with the boat and were drowned.
Tns residents along the course of the
Kistna expect an overflow twice a year.
They depend on it for the irrigation of
their fields. But the present flood was
much greater than they wanted or were
prepared for. All the land in that part of
India needs irrigation, so that the densest
population and the most highly developed
part of the country lies along the river
banks and makes the loss so much the
greater when a flood takes place.
XAVAIj .EXGiyiSERS COLLAPSE.
Twj Officers of the Indiana Succumb to
WASHINGTON, D. C, Aug. 14.— News
received yesterday at the Navy Depart
ment tells of the physical collapse of
Chief Engineer Georee E. Tower and
Passed Assistant Engineer Andrew McAl
lister, both of tbe battleship Indiana. It
gave rise in the minds of naval officers on
duty here to the question whether in the
care of our warships the danger line had
not been crossed iv the attempt of the
overworked naval engineers to carry on
the exacting duties required of them.
The North Atlantic squadron has now
had only eight days of grand maneuvers
and during that short period the efficiency
of the most powerful battleship of the
fleet has been temporarily impaired, two
o* the four naval engineers attached to the
vessel having been condemned by medical
survey and ordered to the Naval Hospital
"It is not surprising," said a prominent
official, "that this repeated tale of the
prostration of naval engineers is heard from
our warsbips. In the British service there
are one-half as many engineers as deck
officers, wnile in our navy thero are only
one-fourth as many engineers as there are
officers of the line. The physical history
oi the corps of naval engineers during the
past years is a sad one, and it emphasizes
the fact that not only must the number of
engineers be increased, but their condi
tions improved in order to render the
ships efficient for the day of battle. The
engineers are now working under an or
ganization which was founded upon the
necessities of wooden snips, but which is
not adapted to vessels of steel."
COUNT PALLAVICINI'S DEATH. .
Cared Not to Live Without the Love of\
Ethel Barrison, the American Actress.
BUDA-PESTH, Hungary, Aug. 14.— 1n
social and other circles little else is talked
of to-day than the romantic suicide and
funeral of Count Arthur Pallavicini, lieu
tenant of hussars, who was buried yester
The lieutenant, a handsome young
fellow, 21 years of age, became greatly
attached to Miss Ethel Barrison, one of
the five Barrison sisters, well-known

at Berlin has brought upon them the
order of expulsion from Germany. Count
Pallavicini sougnt in every way possible
to induce Miss Einel to return his love,
but she only laughed at him.
On Tuesday Count Pallavicini was found
dead, having committed suicide by shoot

hand was a photograph of Miss Ethel and
a slip of paper, upon which the unfor

JEFFERSON'S ANCIENT IDEAS.
What the Pecple Need Is the Oppor
tunity to Earn More Money
of any Kind.
NEW YORK, N. V., Aug. 13.—Ex-Gov
ernor Alonzo B. Cornell of New York has
written an open letter to William J. Bryan,
the Presidential candidate on the Demo
cratic ticket, in the course of which he says:
When you went to Chicago last month and
by your individual eloquence captured the
National Convention of the great Democratic
party and compelled It to award to you its
Presidential nomination, you were hailed by
many as a possible Messiah, who could lead
the people out of their political difficulties.
Hosts of Democrats and Republicans, long dis
satisfied with the internal conduct of their
respective party organizations, prayed that it
might be so and they have awaited in patience
and hope for a full presentation of your views
and mode of relief. How great ia our disap
pointment to find that your message of de
livery is simply an ingeniously abbreviated
presentation of the various arguments we
have read in Congressional debates during the
past twenty-five years. The only advantage
you possess over the threadworn arguments of
"Nevada" Jones and "Windy" Stewart, with
•which tons of Senatorial reports have been
weighted, is that you make your dissertation
somewhat briefer than theirs.
You were born after Lincoln made his Cooper
Institute speech. You were a babe in arms
when secession fired its cannon upon Su#nter.
What good is it for yon to tell us about what
Jefferson and Jackson thought about finance?
They knew nothing about the financial con
ditions and necessities of the American people
of this generation. The general merits or
otherwise of bimetallism or monometallism in
abstract are not the vital questions that afflict
us to-day. What might have been properly
considered in detail tn the coinage act of 1873
or the resumption bill of 1875, is one thing; |
but what is wise to consider now in view of j
the present surroundings and conditions is |
wholly different. The present sufferings of our j
people are caused by events that haye occurred i
j within the past twenty years, and need to be ,
j treated irom the present standpoint and
I wholly with reference to tiie future. We need
a safe and smooth road from our existing
wilderness of difficulties to a future of pros
i perity and consequent contentment.
Our ordinary currency is abundantly good
for present purposes, and the only thing
needed immediately is a condition of confi
dence in financial affairs that will set the mill
! wheels ia motion and increase the employ
j ment of labor. Give us only that and every }
I other good thing will follow.
Industry is the basis of our National pros
perity, and nothing is more certain than tnat
general prosperity of the people . prompts
the generous employment of labor. These
questions are governvd by natural laws just
as certain In their operation as those which
cause day to follow nignt and sunshine to fol
Your failure as a physician and healer of
the public sore is your mistaken diagnosis of
the disease. You have gone back of the pres
ent difficulty and attempted to tell us how to
make a better kind of a dollar. What the peo
ple need Is to be permitted to earn more doJ
lars which are good enough for the present ne
While you arc constructing a new financial
condition the people will continue to suffer
from lack of employment and their present
sufferings will be vastly enhanced. They
want immediate relief and that can best be
accomplished by the most favorable oppor
tunities to earn wages payable in oar present
Xorm of money.
My excuse for addressing you in this man
ner is the sincere belief that the approval of
your views by the people at the approaching
election would bring upon us the most serious
calamity which it is now possible to appre
hend. No foreign war would begin to do our
country so much harm as the acceptance of
your views by the electors of the United States.

dered on tbe sensational. One of the most
important world's records, the one-mile
competition, was broken. The one-mile
National championship was decided so far
as tbe present progress of the circuit is
concerned. It was won by Tom Cooper.
Arthur Gardiner did the record-breaking
in the mile open, paced by John S. John
son and J. W. Parson, the Australian
champion, with thirteen starters in the
race. Gardiner rode the mile in 2:ol,beat
ing the record of 2:01 4-5, established by
Bald just a week ago at Buffalo. He won
by a phenomenal sprint in the stretch,
which he entered ten lengths behind
Sanger, who led $he field. Chairman
Gideon stated afterward that it was the
most wonderful burst of speed that he had
ever seen or heard of.
In the mile National championship
Cooper, who won, had the closest call of
the year. He beat Owen Kimble across
the tape only half the diameter of his front
wheel. Bald was a third of a length be
hind Kimble, the others being bunched
behind. The first serious accident of the

FORT WAYNE, Ind., Aug. 14.— The
feature of the meeting here to-day was the

people were present. The weather was
hot until 3 p. m., when a cold wave swept
down from the northwest, causing the j
mercury to drop about 20 degrees in a few
This chilled the crowd and the horses,
and had a marked effect on speed. In
view of this drop in temperature and the
stiff wind which prevailed thereafter, the
performance of Robert J was a great exhi

track record of 2:03%, made by himself

day's protest on the sinele-scull race be
tween Hanlan and Kogers was withdrawn
to-day and the race given to Rogers.
Hanlan now offers to row any man in
America from one mile to five for $1000
The water this afternoon was rough and
in the professional, single-scull dash,
three-quarters of a mile, all declined to
contest except Hanlan and Durnan. The
ex-champion won by several lengths. The
startere in tbe amateur senior double
sculls, three-quarters of a mile with a
turn, were Russell and Ryan of the
Torontos and Greenwood and Marsh oi
The former crew pulled a very fast
stroke and soon got the lead, but the boat
filled with water and they were forced to
retire. Greenwood and Marsh finished at
their leisure. The final race was a pro
fessional four-oared mile and a half, with
a turn, between tbe English and Canadian-
American crews, and was rowed in rough
water, the wind facing the oarsmen on
their return. The English crew led from
the start, turned a short distance ahead
and after a desperate struggle finished
thirty-two seconds ahead. Time, 18:50.

WASHINGTON, D. C. Aug. 14.-Gov
ernors Island, the military reservation in
the harbor of New York, has been select
ed as the place of meeting for President
Cleveland and Li Hung Chang. The de
cision of Mr. Cleveland with regard to this
feature of the programme now being ar
ranged for the Chinese diplomat's recep
tion has just been reached. Notification
of this fact has been received at the Chi
nese legation, and it has been officially
communicated to Li Hung Chang. The
President and he will clasp hands on this
historic island on the day tbe steamer St.
Louis, bearing him, arrives at the port of
The President has been in communica
tion with Secretaries Olney and Lamont
on this matter. Tbe officials have held
that Li does not come to the United States
as a private personage, but as an envoy of
the Emperor of China; and in proof of
this contention thejr point to a letter
which he is bringing from Peking bearing
the royal signature,
Co mine: as an official representative of
the Emperor to this country, the officials
are anxious to do him honor, hence the de
sire of the President to receive him as be
coming one of the rank and mission of the
There was some talk of the Dolphin con
veying Li from New York to Gray Gables,
the President's summer home. No such
thought was entertained by the digni-
taries of European countries who went out
of their way to meet the former Viceroy.
The President determined to do likewise.
Emperor William of Germany arranged
his plans so that he was at Kiel upon Li's
arrival at that place from Russia. Wash
ington is too warm during the dog days
for holding an audience such as it is pro
posed shall be given Li. New York was
therefore the most central and most con
venient point, and the authorities thought
it would be looked upon as a courteous act
for the President to meet Li immediately
upon his arrival.
So far as the programme has been ar
ranged, it is understood that the dispatch
boat Dolphin will be used to convey the
President from Gray Gables to Governors
Island. The Dolphin has been ordered to
Newport, where she wi'l probably receive
instructions from the President and will
then proceed to Boston, where she will
participate in the trial of the cruiser
This is to occur several days before Li's
arrival, so that upon her relief from this
duty she can return to New York, stop
ping en route to pick up the President and
Secretary Olney. The Dolphin will also
probably be used to transport Li, with
some of the members of his suite, from the
St. Louis upon her arrival at quarantine,
to the island, where the President will be
Besides the President and Secretary
Olney, the receiving part/ will, it is ex
pected, consist of Assistant Secretary of
State Rockhill, who was acquainted with
Li during his residence in China in a
diplomatic capacity ; Secretary Lamont;
an admiral; one officer of the lower rank
of the navy, and a general of the army.
General Ruger, cammanding the depart
ment of the East, is stationed at Gov
ernors Island. It may be, however, that
the authorities will desire another general
officer to form a memoer of the reception
party, and this officer may be Major-
General Miles, commanding the army.
There is some talk of sending additional
troops to Governors Island to parade upon
Li's arrival. If this be true the probabili-
ties are that troops in and about New
York City will be ordered to the reserva
tion. Three companies of the Thirteenth
Infantry are now stationed on the island,
but these would not make the imposing
display the authorities desire.
1^ is expected that the army will also
participate in Li> reception by firing
salutes from thd forts as the Dolphin
passes on her way to Governors Island.
The North Atlantic squadron will, in
pursuance to tbe programme prepared
some weeks ago, be stationed at Tompkins
ville about the time of Li's arrival. It is

expected that the ships will all be paraded,
and that they will also participate in Li'»

the Navy McAdoo positively declares that
he has done nothing in any way looking to
naval participation in the affair.
The report from San Francisco that Li
was deterred from going to that city on
account of threats made against him by
Chinamen there, is ridiculed in official
circles here. It is stated that Li was com
pelled to alter his plans on account of in
structions received from China six weeks
ago. He was on the European continent
at. the time, and cut his tour short there,
hurrying to En.-land, where he is now
making a short visit and advising the
authorities here that he was required to be
at his home earlier than he had antici
pated. He nad selected September 18 as
the date for his arrival in the United
States, bnt advices received from China
compelled him to change the date to
August, and to make his tour in this
country a brief one. Had he the time, it
is stated, he would visit all the principal
cities in the United States.

State Department Officials at Wash*

LONDON, Esq., Aug. 14.— in the House
of Commons to-day Sir William Harcourt,
the leader of the opposition, asked, in re
gard to the Venezuelan situation, if the
proposal contained in the dispatch sent to
the Foreign Office by the United States
Government on June 2 iast had removed
the difficulties, and further inquired
whether there were any prospects of a
speedy submission of the question to arbi
Right Hon. R. J. JBalfonr, First Lord of
the Treasury, said that the Government
was still considering the proposal made
by the United States Government, which
was regarded as opening the way for an
equitable settlement of the difficulty. The
Government had every expectation that
the pending negotiations would lead to an
Sir William Harcourt said that the
House would regard Mr. Haifour's state

papers on the subject prepared to be pre

Mr. Balfour replied that the Govern

House as soon as might be consistent with
WASHINGTON, D. C, Aug. 14.— The
dispatch of Secretary Olney to Sir Julian
Pauncefote, British Emba3sador, referred
to in the House of Commons debate to
day, was considered by many the most
important document in the arbitration
correspondence between the two coun
tries. The dispatch was devoted to a dis
cussion of proposals submitted by Lord
Salisbury for the settlement of the bound
ary dispute, and .concluded with counter
proposals which Mr. Balfour said to-day
"were regarded by the Foreign Office as
opening the way for an equitable settle
ment of the difficulty."
State Department officials are highly
gratified with the tone of Mr. Balfour'i
reply to Sir William Harcourt's query as
to the effect of the dispatch. During the
absence of Mr. Olney, who is exclusively
in charge of the negotiations, nothing
definite can be learned on the subject.
California Fruit Abroad.
LONDON, Eno., Aug. 14.— The latett
consignment of California fruit, consisting
of 1026 cases, arrived in fine shape. The
fruit, owing to abundance of English and
French fruit in the market, sold at lower
prices than the last consignment. Large
lota were taken by German and Russian
buyers. Dealers express belief that the
September and later arrivals of peaches
and pears will fetch better prices.

that the Governor has had to terminate
his vacation ia order to investigate the
