Uoaoburst on Asotin While a gentle shower of rain was fulling in Asotin Thursday between one and two o'clock a destructive cloudburst occurred in the mountains at the head of one of the tributary i branches ot Asotin créés, sending a laid y of water 15 feet high down into the va'ly that swept almost every movable object before it, destroying homes and farms and drowning stock. At lids time it is impossible to esti mate tile loss hut it is safe to say that $100,000 could not repair the damage. Five wagon bridges across Asotin creek were swept out excepting one span of the bridge near the Asotin park. The noise made by the rushing tor rent was heard fully five minutes tie fore it reached here which was about four o'clock. At first it sounded like tiie low moan of the wind and grad ually increased to the noise made on a still night by a train of curs passing er a high trestle or bridge. In an other instaiit, a big muddy wave ten feet high, carrying tiees, timbers, fencing and trust! cuine rolling down the stream spreading out over its hanks. Then came another swell fol lowed still by another, until the water as fully 15 feet deep. So fur as leagued no humun lives ere lost but some miraculous escapes \ are recorded. Mr. and Mrs. Green ere on the banks of the stream In | their orchard and Mr. Green hearing j the noise made by the approaching water remarked to lus wife that that sound;d liken cloudburst. His wif» laughed at the idea of a cloudburst hile the sun was shining hut in an-! other instant the huge wave was with-j in sight. Mrs. Green was so scared she could not move. Her husband made a ru sh for her and grablied lier and just then the water swept them iiotli down, tumbling them over twice.

The hall was beautifully decorated with the class colors aud tlie stage hanked with fragrant flowers, taste fully arranged. It was evident from the crowd and the profusion of flowers that the class of '1*7 was a very popular one. Their friends were all out and many were t urned away for luck of room and extreme closeness of the ut- i mosphere. The programme was an excellent one and every number upon it hlglrly creditable to the manage- j ment. The orations were well deliver ed and evidenced much careful thought and preparation. The contest for tlie prizes always adds zest to the occasion and this year even more than any other the judges were puzzled to choose among contest ants so nearly equal in strength of thought and grace in delivery. 1'rof.

When I ar i rived In Danville, I was met by a pale faced fellow who advised me not to j make a speech. He said there hud j been no Republican campaign speeches ! made there since 1883, when twelve negroes were shot. Malione losl the State on that account. Having cam paigned in the West against Populists ami Democrats for a number of years, I was rather pleased witli the idea of having trouble. I told the Chairman that 1 desired the prelude to my speech to lie without music or a biographical sketch. The Chairman looked at me as if IM gone crazy, hut yielded to my wishes, anti the meeting started. "I had spoken hIhiuI live minutes when u well-organized hand of young fellows, in the center of tlie theatre where toe meeting was held, shunted in concert,'Itits.' The negroes, who were not allowed on the lower floor, were narked in the galleries. I paused a moment, and waving my hand at the gallery, said: 'Wait« r take the Chinamen's order.'
