Richmond. Tex., July ".?Never in the
history of Richmond were such scenes
?witnessed as are depicted to-day. Busi?

plantations are under water. All trains
eave those on the Southern Pacific West
have been abandoned. Provisions are
running low and unless something is
done quickly there will he great suffer?

lieved there will be, at the very least,
from 3,000 to 5.000 persons to feed from
this place within a week. Stories of
drowning and disasters are coming In
constantly, but they cannot be verified,
although It la probable that many of
them are correct. The water hae
reached the river bridge and is clash?

It and for the lirst time the railroad
company has stopped all trnfllc over it.

"The rumor that the Southern and

the two great systems would occur

SAN FRANSCISCO MAKES BIDS
FOR, THE EIGHT,
(By Telegraph to Virglnlan-Pllot.)
San Francisco, Cal., July 7.?No soon?
er had Champion Jim Jeffries landed In
this city than local promoters began
working to secure the fight between
Jeffries and Sharkey. The first offer
came from Charles Newman In the
shape of a certified check of $5,000, de?
posited with a morning paper as a
guarantee of his sincerity in the af?
USE OF $40,000.
Newman, acting solely In his own be?
half, offers a purse of $40,000, the con?
test to be held in this city at theVello
drome, which was built several years
ago for bicycle race meets. It has a
capacity of 15,000 persons. It is the
purpose of the promoter, should he be
the successful bidder, to bring off the
match during the day time.
Upon the heels of the first hid came
one from the Glen Park Company, with
conditions Identical with those made
by Newman?viz.: A purse of $10.000.
the tight to take place some .day in
September, between the hours of 9 a.
m. and 5 p. m. A check for $5,000 will
be deposited to-day by the party mak?
ing the second offer.
Jeffries has this to say about fighting
in S.iu Francisco: "California Is my
home, and 1 would rather Qght Tom
Sharkey here than any other spot on
earth. If there is any possibility of
bringing off the bout in San Francisco
I will do all in my power to encour?
AN EASTERN MAN.
WILL WIN THE GOI.F CHAMPION?
SHIP FOR 1S00
(By Telegraph to Virglnlan-Pllot.)
Onwentsia Golf Course. Halte Forest.
HI.. July 7.?The golf championship for
lS'.'U will be won by an Eastern man
H. H. Harri man. of the Meadowbrock
Golf Club, of Hcmpstcad, E. 1., and the
present champion, Flndlay S. Douglass,
won the semi-finals in the amateur golf
tournament at Onwentsia to-day. and
to-morrow will meet in the deciding
struggle for the championship, it will
bo a Scotch golfer against a native
American. Hnrriman, who formerly
played football and baseball at Prince?
ton, won so ItnDressively to-day from
his opponent, Charles 13. McDonald, ami
displayed such good form In every
phase of the game that to-night many
of the golfers, who have followed the
play of the two nun throughout the
week, are of the opinion that Douglass
will be pressed harder In to-morrow's
game then in any he has had during the
present week, and will have to be at
his best to retain the championship.
The general belief is that the game
will not be won by more than two or
three boles by either man.
McDonald's defeat by Hnrflmnn re?
moved the last Westerner from the list
of contestants. This game, because on
it depended whether or not a Westerner
would contest In the finals, proved a
lodcstonc to the enthusiasts who ennio
out to view the final struggles, and an
unusually large gallery closely followed
the play both during the morning and
afternoon. McDonald's work was a de?
cided disappointment to his friends.
Harriman played consistent golf
Champion Douglass had nn unexpect?
edly hard struggle to win from W. J.
Travis. These two met last year in the
semi-finals. Douglass securing a deci?
sive victory. To-day, however, al?
though Douglass finished the fust is
hoi- s four ui>, tin; game was not de?
cided until the 35th hole had been nego?
Douglass, apparently confident In his
ability to win, played carelessly, and
to this fact was duo the close score.
CANCER ?F ARM
TO THE SUFFERING PUBLIC:
For llio benefit of those In doubt, I wish to say In behalf of Dr. J. Sills Daniel
ami tho Dr. Daniel Remedy Company, or Richmond, Va., 1 went to them as a last
resort. 1 had given up all hope of ever being cured. 1 was afflicted with Cancer of
my left arm, near my shoulder. I had It cut out three times at Intervals of twelvo
mouths. Bach time it returned larger and grew more rapidly. 1 took S. 8. S., three
IVa and other blood remedies without relief. The best surgeons In Baltimore.
Washington nnd Roanoke, Va., operated on me, with results enumerated above. I
was in the Daniel Sanitarium seven weeks. They REMOVED MY CANCER
WITHOUT CUTTING, or WITHOUT LOSS of BLOOD and VERY LITTLE PAIN. THEIR TREATMENT IS WONDERFUL
and when it becomes better known will make Dr. Daniel and the Company not only rich, but as famous -as Koch, Pasteur
I am cured, permanently so, and will gladly reply to any letters of Inquiry regarding myself and the operation 1 have
undergone If writer will enclose stamp.
My advice Is to go to theso people If you are a sufferer with malignant blood troubles.
Yours very truly,
