Siloam Springs, Ark., Oct. 25. Mrs.
Benjamin Sapp, the young wife of
Shoemaker Sapp, created a sensation

Morris of the Bank of Siloain. with a
cowhide. The shoe shop adjoining the
bank was the scene of the episode.
Sforris had been invited there by the
woman's husband, supposedly on bus
iness, and had scarcely entered when
Mrs. Sapp darted at him, repeatedly
wrapping a rawhide, which she held
concealed by her side, around the
banker's neck and shoulders. She
was excited and struck wildly, hitting
an innocent by-stander a couple of
bard raps. Morris is married and
Mrs. Sapp claimed Morris insulted

"The Spanish press unanimously
support the attitude of the govern
ment, which it calls eminently sober
and dignified, but the impression is
that the controversy with the United
States has reached a critical stajre
which may be the prelude U a rupture.
I spoke with three members of the
cabinet to-day (Sunday), who, in al
most identical words, contended that
Spain has the right, after her tremen
dous sacrifices in Cuba, to demand the
observance of international neutrality
by other nations. One of them added:
" 'The gordian knot is the United
States, without whose help the rebel
lion would long ago have been sup
pressed. We do not want war, but
every European nation will approve
of our defense of our international
"The Spanish naval forces in the
Carribcan sea will be strengthened on
the pretext of a necessity for increased
vigilance on the Cuban coast. Gen.
Weyler has cabled a denial of the re

ent of Black and White was robbed.
He said Hughes died of syncope and
appeals to the testimony of the British

Spain Cannot Continue Her Forbearance
Toward the L'ulted state.
Madrid, Oct. 25. There is no doubt
that the government's reply will repre
sent the deep feeling of the nation.
The note dwells at length on filibus
tering and "other material and moral
assistance which has chiefly contribu
ted to the rise and duration of the re
hellion and which in turn has dam
aged American interests."
It clearly intimates that Spain can
not coutinue the "forbearance shown
by Senor Canovas del Castillo and the
duke of Tetuan during the past two
years," and that she now calls upon
the American government "to fulllil
more strictly in the future the rules
and duties of international law," be
cause the success of the new home
rule policy and the speedy pacification
of Cuba chiefly depend upon the con
duct of the United States.
El Imparcial publishes a cablegram
from Key West asserting that there is
a strong party in Cuba, "fiercely op
posed to Marshal Blanco, and the new
regime," and that it is feared his task
will be very difficult.

Lugard, British officer in command In
the Kalahari desert, south central
Africa, who was for some time in com
mand of British east Africa and later
was connected with the Boyal Niger
company, has just returned to London
from central Africa. In the course of
an interview as to the difficulties be
tween the British and the French in
the Hinterland of Lagos, in west
Africa, Capt. Lugard said to the corre
spondent: "Beyond the fact that the govern
ment has telegraphically summoned me
for special service in east Africa, I
know nothing as to my future move
ments. With regard to the French
claims, however, the case is quite
clear. Borgu, of Kilckiis, the capital,
indisputably belongs to England, by
virtue of a treaty concluded with the
king prior to any- so-called treaties
with France or any European nation.
We have also treaties with Ilesha and

Great Damage Wrought at Denver On

Miles of Wire Jo Down Under
the Weight of Sleet.
Denver, CoL, Oct. . 25. Aside from
.be tremendous inconvenience caused
to the public and to private interests.
the storm of last night and to-day has
wrought an intrinsic damage in the
citv of Denver and its suburbs that is
conservatively estimated to be in ex
cess of 3100,000. Of course, should the
storm continue several . days, the
amount will multiply many times.
The estimate of damage includes only
the semi-public concerns, such as the
electric light, telegraph, telephone and
street car companies. It is to the
wires and poles that the greatest harm
has been done. Electrician Stearns
said this afternoon that probably 1,000
poles were down in Denver alone and
upwards of 4,000 miles of wires.
General Manager Field of the Colo
rado Telephone Co. estimated the pres
ent damage to its system at $20,000.
It would be greater, he said, but for
the fact that in the central portion oi
the city the company has recently
placed mauy of its wires underground.
With the exception of the Bock Is
land, the Kansas Pacific, the Colorado
Central and the Julesburg & South
Park branches of the Gulf road, rail
roads leading into Denver have been
completely blocked all day. Snow
plows have been brought into active
service on all lines, but the tracks be
came covered with snow again soon
after they were cleaned.
The storm was most severe and the
greatest trouble was experienced by
the railroads between Denver and
All freight trains have been annulled

Railroad reports show that the storm
was general throughout the eastern
half and a section of the northern
part of this state, the southern part
of Wyoming, the northeastern part of
Utah and the western halves of Ne
braska and Kansas.
A message from Colorado Springs
stated that the snow and sleet were
blowing so furiously there that it was
impossible to see across the street.
Leadville had a slight snowfall last
night, but none to-day.
The storm came so suddenly that
ranchmen did not have an opportunity
to shelter their stock, but the fall in
temperature is not considered by ex
perts great enough to endanger the
lives of cattle.
The city is in darkness to-night, as
the mayor compelled the electric light
company to cut off all its circuits on
account of their dangerous condition.
Cripple Creek In the Grip of a Blizzard
with Drifting Buow.
Cripple Creek, Col., Oct. 26. Not in
years has there been such a blizzard
here as that which prevails at the pres.
ent time. High winds that come in
typhoon-like blasts are drifting the
enow on the sidewalks and in soma
places to a great depth. Railroad
traffic is suspended, telegraph lines
are down and canyons are choked
with snow and it is impossible to see
100 feet on account of the blinding
storm. Considerable damage to prop
erty has occurred. Mining operations
are seriously impeded by the storm,
which continues furiously, with no
sign of abatement soon. The weather
is very cold, and it is feared there will
be great suffering among the poor.

While service was in progress in the

prattling boy during the stormy. and
poverty-stricken days of reconstruc

was left, so to speak, penniless at the
close of the civil war, and, struggling
against poverty to raise his children,
young Bartow was obliged to depend
mainly on the three months' public
schools taught during the winter for
an education excepting one session at
the Greenville academy. But he was
ambitious to acquire knowledge, was
very studious, and, though frail in
physique, was often at bis books till

three years, making many friends and

FEEDING THE ARMY.
Report of Commissary General Sulli
van for the Paat Year.
Gen. Thomas C. Sullivan, commis
sary general of subsistence, has made
his annual report of the opera
tions of that department to the secre
tary of war. The total resources for
the last fiscal year were $2,798,754, of
which there was a total unexpended
balance at the close of the year of $633,
545. The total cost of subsisting the
army during the year was $1,972,703.
The sum of $75,881 was expended for the
relief of the sufferers from overflow of
the Mississippi and its tributaries and
the Red River of the North, under spe
cial act of congress. Of the total appro
priations on that account there is a bal
ance on hand of $20,639.
Gen. Sullivan says that an experi
mental trial of the emergency ration
was undertaken by troop E. First caval
ry, at Fort Sill. O. T.. upon a 12-days
practice march in May. 1897.
This march was made the occasion for
the first practical test of the emergency
ration. For the first two days the men
were subsisted on the full field ration
and for the remaining ten days officers
and men came down to the half-allow
ance emergency ration prescribed by
general order No. 49. The march was
generally across country, off wagon
roads, and the average number of miles
covered per day in the ten days' test was
21. The weather up to the last two
days of the march was exceptionally
fine, and then heavy and almost con
tinuous rains set in.
Gen. Sullivan says: "The test was
made under conditions in which the
men were not affected by the excite
ments, anxieties and fatigues attend
ant upon dangerous proximity to or ac
tual conflict with an enemy. Asa test
under the conditions given, the results
seem to go a long way toward establish
ing the efficiency of the emergency ra
tion as a means of sustaining the mus
cular power and activity of men under
prolonged physical strain; but its full
efficiency needs yet to be tested by men
situated in or moving in a more critical

that of similar losses in the previous
Supplies lost during the year for
which responsibility was fixed B mount
ed to $203.05. of which $233.91 has been
collected. leaving still to be collected
$30.04. Above shows a very large de
crease from losses of like character for
a number of years, except in 1895. when
like losses amounted to but $183.58.
During the year $8,448 was expended
on account of the Apache Indian pris
oners at Fort Sill, O. T., and $360 for the
deportation of the British Cree Indians
and their delivery to the Canadian au
thorities. Gen. Sullivan urgently rec
ommended a rearrangement of the cler
ical force of his office in accordance
with the plan recommended in his last
annual report. The estimates for sal
aries of clerks, messengers and laborers
for the next fiscal year are $42,760.
