that tho murder was committed. This
shanty was n one-story bovcli kept by

n pistol-shot was heard, and Enoch
Turner fell dead from a bench
on tho threshold. Immediately
the lights were put out nnd there was u
scattering of tho inmates of tbo hovel.
Somo of them camo back directly and

A llcpotltlon of Scenos tin II Street
That Woro Common Somo Wooks
Aro A Korso floated From tho
They bad another flood down about
the market and tbo 1). & P. Depot to
day. A bob-tall street car that was empty"
bad n perilous voyago from Pottr-and-n-hnlf,
around tbo depot to Ninth street.
Not baving anybody aboard, It was
light, and when it cot whero tho water
was deepest, at tbo comer of Sixth
street and Missouri avenue, just by the
depot, the car was afloat, and tbo cur
rent of muddy water carried it oft the
track. But tbo ono horse and tbo
driver stuck nobly to their posts, nud
tlio horso succeeded In towing tho float
ing car around onto II street into shnl'
lower water, and finally ll was got
safely back onto tbo track. Tho car
had n narrow escape from being skip
wrecked against the lamp-post at tho
corner of tlio depot, but tho skipper
beg piydon d river, succeeded by skill
ful seamanship in steering It clear of
tho dangerous corner.
Tho water was highest at about noon.
Tbo rainfall was about tho heaviest over
seen la Washington. Tho sowers lu
tho lower portions of tlio city wcro un
able to entry off tbo largo quantity of
water that fell and It stayed In tho
Hticcls. Tho commission houses along
Louisiana avenue wcro flooded, and tho
stands of wares out on tbo pavement
wcro Islands. Ninth street, down bv
Iho market, was also flooded, the water
covering the floors of some of tbo
saloons. It did not rlso high enough to
Hood tho floor of the market quite"; but
people who were In the mnrkct couldn't
get out and those who wcro out couldn't
get it without wading, Tho greatest
inconvenience was at the railroad sta
tion. Pcoplo who walitad to catch
trains had to pay fcab drivers quaitcrs to
gel across the flooded street to thodepot.
The water was clear up to tho tessel
lated floor of the station and an old ne
gro woman who had come up from
down In Virginia was scared half to
denth. Tlio depot was "full of pcoplo
who had come in on trains and wcro
unable to get out. Tho driver of the
Iilggs House omnibus took In tho situa
tion ns soon ns bo got there. A stretch
of water a lod wldo nnd thrco or four
feet deep separated his vehicle fiom tho
steps to the entrance, of tbo station.
When ho saw this ho drovo away and
enrno back In a few minutes with a half
do7cn big planks. With theso bo mado
a bridge to his bus and bis rivals wcro
Kvcrybody except tbo peoplo who ha.l
to lilic cabs to get across tho street to
the depot nnd the pcoplo whoso collnu
were liooucu was gooa-naturcu. tho
driver of the car that followed tho ono
thai was floated off the tracks and ncaily
shlpwieckcd had a long bead. Ho saw
what had happened, and as there wcio
no passcngets lu bis car, ho invited a
bait donloafcrs that wcro standing
on the tof..r lo get aboard for ballast.
They needed no second invitation.
When ho got thiotigh tbo flood ho put
them off and thanked them. Tlio water
enmo tqi over tbo floors of tho cars nnd
passengers, fnt women and all, had to
climb onto tho scats to keep out of tbo
water. Tho horses splashed compla
cently through tho flood and seemed
to enjoy tho novelty. Thoy became
used to It during the recent Hood and
tho water cooled them. It was almost
as good as a bith.
Tlio landlady of n big boarding houso
en Missouri avenue, near tlio depot,
just hired n man this morning to clean
tho traces of tho piovlous flood off her
diab-palnted brick bouse. The negro
bad just finished tbo job nnd got his
pay when tho downpour began. Tho
sawcis choked, tho sticet began to fill
with muddy water that lose higher and
higher ns tho rain continued, till finally
the portion of tlio Mall between Mis
souri and Maryland nvenucs and Sixtli
nnd Thhd sltccts wns a lake. After
tbo water went down this afternoon tho
bonrdlug-liouso looked about as bad as
It did beforo It wns cleaned.
All the cellars of the stores along tbo
south sldo ot the Avenue between Sixth
nnd Seventh sticcts wcro Hooded. Har
bour & Hamilton, May's and Carter's
haulwnro stores, Shea's, U. G.
Wheelei's, al Seventh and II sheets, all
lost quite heavily. Tho saloons along
Sixth and Seventh streets wcro Hooded,
too, uud when tho water went down tho
Hoots wcro coveted with sticky mud.
Tho Howard Houso kitchen, which is
lu the cellar, was Hooded, and may havo
to lo pumped out ugaln, ns was done
during tho previous flood, Atlor tho
hardest of tbo down pour was over tlio
water Mibsldcd through tho sowcis
Tho openings Into tho sowers wcro
veritable whirlpools. Thcro Is a big
manhnlo Into tbo sower In tho centre ot
Missouri arcnuo, just at Sixth street,
and tho eddy tho water mado rushing
down Into It almost tluow tlio street
car horses off tbclr feet. A man that
got caught lu it might havo been
drowned, right In tlio mlddlo of tho
street, for tlio water there wns at least
tin co feet deep. Tho street boys en
joyed tho flood to its full. Thoy pulled
off tbclr shoes nnd stockings, such as
had any to null off, and, with
their trousers rolllcd up to their
hips, they inn and splashed
about In tho water to their heart's con
tent till It subsided nnd loft tho Hooded
streets slippery with tho slimy mud.
Hy U o'clock tho water hnd tun oft the
streets tluough tho sewers, and tho
second flood lusldo of a mouth was
over. Though not so ruinous as Its
predecessor, it was by no me ins n
ti!ial nlTalr, and It mado almost as

London, July 1, Tho Oluonklt has re
ceived a dispatch from Its Durban corre
spondent, lu which ho sajs ho thinks that
the reports ot tho Delagoa Bay disturbance
havo been exaggerated aud that tho gen
eral opinion thcro Is that Portugal will buy
tho lallway, which Is tha cause ot tho
Tlio Now ArrniiKonicnt or tlio Metro
liolltmi nnd Columbia Linos.
Tho Metropolitan and Columbia
Street Car Companies began this morn
ing to transfer pnsscngcrs f rcu from one
to tho other line. Lois of pcoplo took
advantage of tho new concessions to
tho public's convenience, and already
travel on both roads has becu much In
creased, Not only the number ot pas
sengers Is Increased, but tho mtmbor
of fares token in by each of tho lines
has been slightly greater. By tbo now
arrangement passengers cither on New
York avenuo or Ninth street can got
transfers by nsklng tlio man In tho natty
bluo cap, with "Transfer Agent" across
lis front in silvered letters, that will en
title them to n rido on the other Una in
cither direction.
r.vcrybody Is pleased, but a few
hundred families arc
ulcnscd. Thcv Hvo out In the north
eastern district, about midway between
the H street cars and the East Capitol
street cars. They can come In on ono
line, secure transfers, attend to their
business and go out on lho other line,
nllTc-r ono fare. Pcoplo work this sou
of n scheme now on the Sovcnth
street, the Avenue and Pouitcenth
sheet lines. The eonccsslou to the
nubile is mutual by tbo two companies.
President Claggctt said this morning:
"There is no money consideration in
volved In the nrrnugement. This com
pany and the Metropolitan Company
meiely agrco to carry each other's pas
sengers from the coiner of Ninth street
niiiTNew York avenue. Tho expense
will bo about evenly balanced and It Is
expected that each company will expe
rience enough increase of Unfile to
more than compensate for tho Increased
expense of hauling tbo transferred pas
sengers. Tho two companies mo In no
way connected or consolidated. They
occupy tho same relations to each other
they aid before, only, for their mutual
benefit, they transfer passengers. The
arrangement is, so far ns I know,
"Wo have six new two-hoise cars or
dered and they will bo running In a
short while. The Johnstown disaster
has delayed tho relaying of tho track.
Tho rails wcro being mado by the
Johnstown Steel Company. But I ex
pect lho rails will airlvo during this
weekend tho work of iclnvlng lho
hack will begin nt once. When It Is
dono our road-bed will be as fine as any
In tbo city."
People out In the northern part of the
city nro very much pleased with
the new transfer scheme. It enables
them to go almost anywhere for one
fnic. Ueforc, they could hardly get
about tho city nt nil without paying two
fares. It will Increase tho tiaillo on tUu
Nlnlh-slrcot line, because jicoplo going
out northeast from tho mmket used to
rido up Sovcnth Bticct to tho Now York
avenuo line nnd nav two fares. Now
they will all go up Ninth street and tha
Metropolitan Company will get lho
tares. Under tho new airaugcincnt tho
company lho faio in paid on keeps tho
whole of it, and tho line tbo passenger
transfers to carries him for nothing.
Hut It Is expected that nbout as mayy
will transfer one wnv as Art l e other.
WuX, It IcViM v the Columbia Ihrj:
liad n h llio tlio best ot it. Hundreds ot
pcoplo who work In the Treasury, War,
Slate and Navy Dcpaitmcnts Hvo In the
fcctlon of tho city reached by tbo
Ninth-street cars. They used to ride
down P street to Ninth nnd transfer up
Ninth sheet to go homo. Under tho
nriangcmcnt that went Into effect this
morning they will get on Now York
avenuo cars at Fifteenth street, rido to
Ninth and get transfers up that street
homo. Tho Columbia Hue will cany
these passengers six squares nud put
their fines lulls pocket, and tho Ninth
street line will haul them tho rest of tho
way for nothing, ns under tlio nirango
ment tho company that gets tho fare
keeps it all. Of courso tho people
coming to woik In the morning will go
far toward cnualllug this, but as more
people walk in the moinlng tho Colum
bia people w 111 bo a trifle ahead on tho
Hut the people out northeast aro tha

he arrives n special train will bo mndo

Boiilh, Among thoso who left lust
night wcro James Porrcll, Joo Coburn,
Jim Wakcly, Charles Johnson, Phil,
Lynch, Jnck Cussack, Prank Moran
nnd Harney Mngulrc. A, special from
Hclfast reports Sullivan as In the
very best condition. Ho now weighs
SOI pounds, nnd It Is expected that ho
will Inciensc In llcsh fourorfivo pounds
whllo en route to tho fighting giouiid.
Ho attended services nt tha Catholic
church ycstcnlaj morning.
.HAt.TiMoiiti, July 1. Jako Kllraln
reMed quietly ycstculay, with tho ex
ception of a tcu-mllo carlv walk.
Mitchell lcturncd fiom Now Yoik on
Saturday night, and Informed Kllraln
of the place selected for tho fight. Tho
exact location is kept n scciet, but
Mitchell and Kllraln both say that there
will bo no Interference, nml that tlio
ground chosen Is In every way thor
oughly suitable for the purpose. Kll
rnln looks In perfect trim. Tlio pickling
process his bands nnd face havo been
subjected to has given his skin on those
parts of his body a peculiar brownish
color not unlike Inn, but which In n
man of KUrnln's complexion, which Is
naturally dark, Is not displeasing, but
underneath his clothes thu skin Is as
whlto as tho fairest woman's, and the
beautiful play of tho muscles when the
pugilist Is nt work can plainly bo scon.
Ills llcsh Is hard and firm, tbo muscles
flexible, nnd his stomach as tlnl as
can be.
When nsked how ho felt tho pugilist
smiled confidently and said: "I was
never In better condition than I nm now
In my lite. My bonds and face ate as
hard ns nuts and I am ns strong ns I
possibly could be. To day I weighed
180 pounds nnd I expect to fight nt
about 185, but If I do not succeed In
getting down to that I will bo nil right
anyhow. A matter ot two or tlneo
pounds nbovo Hint won't mako any dif
feicncc. Whnt will tho result bo? Well,
ot course, I can't answer that. Nobody
knows, but both 'Charllo nnd I nro con
fident ot my ability to beat tho big fel
low. It w 111 bo a hard battle, but I am
determined to win."
Kllrnln and his friends will lcavo
Haltlmoic to-morinw foi Now Orleans,
and on the trip tho pugilist will con
tinue his dally cvcrclso In a car es
pecially fitted up for the purpose.
Mitchell will cook every bit of food his
man cats, and a plentiful supply of
water will be taken along In a lot u'f big
(lemi)onns, tup vr.iirr win do Hwai
the spring nl which Kllraln hn3 been
drinking since ho has been training.
Tommy Williams, n well-known local'
sport, who has been up to Hclfast nnd
seen Sullivan, still stakes his confidence
and money on Klltaiu. Ho says ho has
seen both Sullivan and Kllialn fight
and, whllo tho former is tho harder hit
ler, lie llies pcicciillbly after four
loumls, whllo Jako husbands his
strength nnd strikes evenly with effect
throughout. He expects to sco Sulllvnu
uish nt Kllialn like n bull during the
fust few rounds nud then when ho Is
winded thinks Jako will take his tlmo
lo Hnlsh tho big fellow.
Kllraln's friends still think thcro will
bo considerable houblo In selecting n
icfcrce and that this Important person
age will not bo chosen until tho day of
the light. Mitchell, In sneaking of the
outlook, icgards tho lesult as n loiegono
conclusion nnd refuses to beliovo that
thero will bo any Interference, cither
fiom tho local authorities or from thoso
who will bo present nt tho fight. Kll
i alu's friends nro of tho opinion that
tho reports about Sullivan's superb con
dition nto exaggerated, though they
hopo bo will bo In prime health, ns thu
vlctorj", should It como Kllraln's way,
will bo all thu greater. Tho betting In
this city Is anything but lively, but It Is
predicted Ibat it will pick up during tho
couiso of tho next few days. The dele
gation lo go from this city will com
prise moio than fifty well known
spoiling men.
New Oiii.iians, July 1. New
Orleans Is wildly excited over tho com
ing Kllialn-Sulllvnn prize fight, and It
Is lho only subject of discussion here.
Fiank Stevenson, who Is now backing
Kllrnln, nnd who was until icccntly nn
anient supporter of Sullivan, explains
why ho deserted Sullivan. "I bet ou
him till after tho Mitchell fiasco." he
said. "I was certain Hint Sullivan
would w in, ns I knew Hint ho worked
bard for it and that ho did not drink a
diop lu England. Sullivan's special
qualifications are for a tight under tho
Marquis of Quecnsborry lilies. Ho Is
tho gicalest Qucensbcrry fighter tho
world has ever seen. No living man
enn beat him In n four-round glovo
fight, lint In battles to a finish, whero
gciictnlship nnd slaying powors nio
needed, Sullivan Is not gi cat as Kllraln.
I have watched Kllrnln nml I sec Hint
ho is lho greatest of ring tacticians.
What fits him especially for a ring

London, July 1. The city of Naples,

pn a scale never beforo paralleled In tho
histoiy of municipalities In nny imt of

demolition of 17,000 houses nnd slxlv
Ivvo churches lu the most thickly settled
nnd most squalid parts of tho city,
where tho nariovv streets, filled with
pcicnnlnl filth, breed pestilence and
death. It Is proposed to erect lu tliclt
stead well-built houcs, and In lay out
fine, broad streets that will let in thu
nlr and tho sunshine to lho Inhabitants.
Naples Is lho most thickly populated
city In Europe, and the quarter to bo
thus icnovated contains now n poiilu
tiou of 108,000, or 000 to tho acic. It
Is proposed lo reduce this population
Just one-half. All the people now re
siding lu these slums have received
notice to quit, and when the work hat
been completed (he new buildings will
probably have an cnllicly new set of
occupants. A new sheet a ml lo and

lho width of any existing sheet lu
Naples, Is to bo uiu tluough tho dis
