history of tlie city, resulting in the loss of
kt leust eleven lives nrvl the total K-,truc-

Tlie atregate loss is not far from tTv,noo.

of water into the stream. Hlliriir their
banks iu an in-t.int. The polii-c nn.l tire
departments immeliateiy disputc-hed
mounted messengers to warn the dwellers
in the low I y i n 5i portions of the city of the
Keseueil from Itttofs and Treen.
The raving waters tore their wr.y
through the ievee on the north side of the
river near the Main Street bridurc and
spread over many blocks of ground.
KescutTs manned boats r.nd rafts and hast
ened to the relief of the unfortunates wr.o
had sought shelter on the roofs of their
houses and clum to tlft- branches of
friendly trees. The wnters ro-e higher
and hinher until they lapped the floors of
the river bridges, standing on which were
many hicht-seers. The bridges swayed
frightfully and at times it seemed that
they must certainly be carried away. The
basements of all of the lower lying parts
of the city quickly filled, doing great dam
age to valualde stocks of goods.
Loss of Life That Is Known.
As to the loss of lifo it is kno-vn that
eleven were victims of the flood. Two
corpses of men were seen floating down
the Arkansas, but could not lie recovered
owing to tne turbulence of the water. A
Union I'acifie frt-ifc-tit .train plunged
through a weakened trestle near this city
and Knginecr Henderson und Fireman
Nye were drowned. An. immigrant ami
his wife and live ehihben were camped in
a tent on the Fountain bottoms and they
were drowned by the rushing wall of
water which tore down the U-d of the
brook currying everything before it. A
number of persons are reported missing
by their relatives and friends and it is
altogether likely that when the waters
subside sufficiently to permit a careful
search the bodies of many will lie discov
ered in the ruins of their homes.
Tw Thousand lVrson llomeleHs.
Fully 2. ful jiersons have been rendered1
homeless, nearly all losing everything they
had in the world. The rise was so unex
pected and so rapid that it was impossible
for the rescuers to do more than to save
life, no opportunity beingg:ven to attempt
to remove personal Ix-longings. These
losses, while small individually, will ag
gregate n great many thousandsof dollars.
The carcasses of all kinds of animals float
by dozens in the waters.

Wednesday of paralysis of the heart.
About ten days ago Mr. Mellen started for

Cincinnati, July t!,. The distillers of
Cincinnati and vicinity who will by law
be called upon Aug. 5 to pay their share of
about SVM.OOOof taxes on whisky distilled
in May and June, l5), have unanimously
addressed a request to Secretary Carlisle
to instruct collectors to delay the collec
tion for ninety days. They say the preseut
financial situation is abnormal, and that
to withdraw that large sum of money from
banks and from circulation at this time
would heighten the present distress.
No Foreign Inference, Says France.
Paris, July 28. Lord Dufferin, the Brit
ish ambassador, had a conference with M.
Develle, the foreign minister. The follow
ing semi-official statement was issued
later. "It may be taken for granted that
France intends in the first place to settle
the questions of treaty violation and na
tional dignity which have been created by
Biam's attitude. France's rule of action
will be no to allow any foreign interfer
ence in this matter."
Good fur Crop In Kansas.
Topeka, July 28. Dispatches from Tari
ous points show that a storm has been gen
eral throughout western, central and
northwestern Kansas. Everybody is jub -lant,
and now it seems almost certaiu that
Kansas' will produce a larger and better
corn crop than for years.
cr. ?e r.?:uxo's HtsTw.-ir ii at
held in Music hall, where the speeches
were ful. of praise of Scotchmen and their
country. The Americans were told that
all that 'ves wanted to settle the financial
question was a few Scotchmen in charge
atWashngton. There was a procession,
music, and Scotch dances. A claim that
Scotland was the only country that never
had bowed to a foreign yoke brought the
protest f:-om Judge Uryan that America
made th same claim.
At the meeting of the national commis
sion an a'tempt was made to pass a reso

GREAT BRITAIN'S POSITION.
She Will Take No Hand in the riniif-o-Si-umcse
Loxro. July S. In the house of
lords the government was questioned as
to the situation in Siaru with relation to
England's interests, and also as to what
progress I,ord Dufferin was making at
Paris. L ird I lose berry, foreign minister,
assured the home that he had no re
luctance to take the members in;o his con
fidence, b it he could not give the desired
informati n solely because M. Develle
had not b;en able to receive Lord Dufferin
until Wednesday. He added that it might
be desirat le to again define the attitude of
the gover-iment. From the outset of the
trouble G -eat Britain had ref used to in
tervene in the dispute upon the merits of
which the government did not feel called
upon to express an opinion.
It had t lereforo confined itself to pro
viding for the safety of British lives and
interests in Bangkok. It was to Ik- re

French. !t was hardly necessary to state
that the British government had" from the
beginning sedulously avoided givwig any
advice to Siam beyond occasionally
when she had asked for it. But Great
Britain hud urged her to make terms as
quickly us possible with her powerful
Nevertheless t he British government whs

had first p ace in the great commercial in

IT WAS ALL TRYON'S FAULT.
The Court Martial at Malta Ajrree Wiih
'lie Ill-l uted Admiral.
Vai.KTTA. Malta. July 28. The court
martial on the collision between the Camp
erdown an 1 the Victoria has concluded
its labors a id made up its decision, which
is that the nceident was due entirely to
the order g ven by Vice Admiral Tryon.
Not only w is Captain Bourke, but all the
other survivors were acquitted of all
blame. Ca;tain Bourk", whose sword
had been si rrendered pending the investi
gation was probably the happiest man
present, w'len Vice Admiral Seymour,
president of the court, returned the wea
pon amid goneral congratulations.
The court expressed regret that Kear
Admiial Murkham. who on the day of the
disaster won on the Camperdown in com
mand of the port column, did not carry
out his orig nul intention and ignore the
signal disp ayed by the Victoriu, in at
tempting to obey which the Camperdown
rammed and sank the Victoria. The court
added, how ver, relative to Admiral Mark
ham, that it would be fatal to the best in
terests of the service to nay that he was to
blame for currying out the directions of
the commander-in-chief, who was present
in person. - -

Tramps and Thieves.
Denvek, July 2S It was feared that
the lynching of Arata might have the
effect of making the lawless element . f
the city bolder in their operations, especi
ally with so many unemployed men about,
so Mayor Vanhorn has issued a proclama
tion calling upon. "All citizens of Denver
who prize the good name of our city and
state to refrain from congregating on
the streets and elsewhere: and speakers
are requested to nbvain from addressing
all assemblages f laljori g men and oth
ers. The state, county an I city are doing
everything possible to help the needy. Let
us have no unnecessary excitement "
National Guards as Patrolmen.
Officers have been stationed in all the
tough sections of the city who promptly
report any suspicious gatherings. The
Italian section especially is carefully
watche i. Sheriff Bnrchinell quietly
slipped Naori, accessory to the urder of
B. C L'ghf foot, who was killed by Arata,
to the penitentiary at Canon City to avoid
a repetition of the mob outbreak. It had
been ru morel about the city that an at
tempt would lie made to lynch him. De
tails of the National guard wore put on
duty unarmed watching the gun .stores of
the city to s;-e t hat no suspicious quanti
ties of ammunition might be distribute !
among ths mob.
Alleged Mob I-e.ul.-rs Arrested.
J. Brennen, an ex-convict who has served
two terms in the Canon City penitentiary,
and Jim Willis, a negro and ex-convict,
have been arrested as ringleaders in the
mob which lynched Arata. A number of
other arrests will follow, and vicious char
acters either run out of the city or placed
behind the bars.
Trying to Lay It on Walte.
It is general opinion that no steps will
be taken to prosecute any of the ringlead
ers of the mob, though a few of them will
probably be indicted. The coroner began
an inquest on the body of Arata, but it
was secret and nothing has lcen given
out. Governor Waite has been criticised
severely because of his well-known antip
athy to capital punishment. It is claimed
that the certainty of a reprieve t-hould
Arata be convicted and sentenced to death
had much to do with the friends of the
murdered man taking the law into their
Afraid of an Attack on a Hank.
A company of Colorado National guard
is on doty in the People s National bank.
It was feared that in the present excited
state of the public mind the developments
in the affairs of the bank might lead to an
attack on that institution. President Law
rence aud his family left the city early in
the morning, and the case against him was
continued to Saturday morning. The po
lice have their hands full. Several thou
sand men swarm in the lower sections of
the city, though without any definite pur
pose in view. Whenever they attempt to
congregate or orators attempt to address
them the gathering is promptly dispers- d.
I he National guard is on duty at t:.e ;t
ruory, and any attempt at disturbance? will
be promptly suppressed.
CITY SWARMING WITH TRAMPS
And Kobbory Rampant Attempt to Loot
the Connty Treasury.
Lkaycworth, Kas., .Tu y 2S. Three
masked men made a bold but unsuccess
ful attempt to rob the county treasurer's
office in the court house here. About 2 a.

noise, and with a big revolver in baud he

When within ten or fifteen feet of the

The robliets after firing through the
