Where is the business activity proph

Republican newspapers and orators last
fall repeatedly predicted that the busi

thing of the past if Clevelsud was re

into voting for Harrison, and what is the
result? The railroads, which are the
business barometer of the country, show
a large shiinkage in receipts during the
six months ending June 3D. Purine this
period eight railroads, comprising a total
length of 2,690 miles and representing an

There are queer rumors about Kilrain.

Albany, N. Y., July 10. A special from
Johnstown, N. Y., last evening reports that
heavy rain has been fulling since early
yesterday afternoon. The downpour caused
the Cayudotta creek to become a raging tor
bent, which soon burst its bounds. Two
dams gave way, being unable to withstand
the enormous pressure. On swept the tor

along its banks, valued at many hundreds of

There was another bridge crossing the

AN EXTENSIVE DISASTER.
Heavy Rains Near Amsterdam but the
Telegraph Wires Down.
Saratoga, N. Y., July 10. Amsterdam,
N. Y., reports an exceedingly heavy rain
storm iu that section just before communica
tion was cut off. Aiken is on the New York
Central, and a creek which furnishes pow-er
to several mills runs through the place. In
the bitter case it is just possible that the
heavy cloud-burst reported may have so
swollen this stream as to cause a disastrous
overflow. Other reports assign the reported
disaster to a cyclone, but the heavy rain in
that sect ion aflirms lieyond doubt that the
visitation has been by fl.xl. Efforts to com
municate Kith any point within the localities
are unavailing. But what has been learned
so far leads to the impression that the acci
dent is of the most serious character, involv
ing extensive hisses.
Schenectady Hears of It.
Schenectadv, N. Y., July 10. A cloud
burst washed away the New York Central
railroad tracks between Aikens and Tribes
stations, about five miles west of Amster
dam, yesterday afternoon, causing another
delay to all trains. The wreck of a freight
train, which blocked all four tracks in the
morning, bad just been cleared, nnd de
layed trains had begun to move both east
and west, when some of them were caught
by this new mishap, and a second blockade
occurred, more serious than the first. It is
impossible to learn here how bad the break
ia, or how long it will take to reair it. Some
of the trains hurrying to make up lost time
narrowly escaped the cloud-burst, but al 1
did escape it. One house was partially
washed away, but no lives have been hsU

THE LATEST RELIGIOUS SECT.
A Regular Net of 8cra-Doctrlnalres Very
Proline of Iamns.
Columbia, 6. C, July 10. The Southern
Christian Advocate describes a new religious
sect wbich has appeared in Sumter and ad
joining counties in the eastern part of this
state. It was formed some years ago by a
former Methodist, named Boyle, his follow
era calling themselves "Truelight Baptists.'
They are, however, now known as Boyleites.
Their ranks are recruited from among the
most ignorant classes. They are not very
numerous. It is bard to tell just what their
belief is, but one of its features is that there
must be no paid ministry, but all members
who feel called on to preach do so voluntar
ily, including women.
A Dnil Bare Thins; on Doctrine.
They believe that they alone are God's true I
followers, and that they alone will be saved.
Tbey reject the Old Testament and such
parts of the New Testament as fail to sup
port their doctrines. They do not olnerve
the Sunday, declaring that it was abrogated
along with the LeviQcal law. They believe
in social equality of the races, in immersion,
and in the damnation of infants of non-1

London, July 10. The difficulty between
Costa Rica ami Nicaragua is of considerabls
interest in Paris because the Panama canal

Costa Rica has been provided with arms and
money from some source, and thsre is open

A former power on the bourse who has
been almost completely wrecked by the
collapse of Panama canal shares says: "From

"It cannot be expected that we will sit
with foldtsi hands and see the results ot our
labor and expenditure rendered nugatory,
as it would be by the completion of a canal
through Nicaragua. The company formed

it of conciliating a jealous p -ople and brib

"We bave had dealings with the class, and

war for the benefit of a private company

which she had never as a state surrendered."
