Hundreds of l'ooplo l)rlcit l'rum Their llcilti mill Rendered Homeless Roelc forili 111., Vlsltcil by a Disastrous Tlocul Exciting Scenes. RocKroiti), III., Juuo 14. At least half a million dollars' worth of property was destroyed In this city and vicinity last night. Never since 1S57, when the watois rose, and oveiwhclmcd nearly all the city of Rock ford, has such a dis astrous Hood visited this section as that of last evening. For three hours the lain fell in tor leuts, vivid lightning played and following each Hash camepeals of thunder. The stoim com menced at 8 o'clock and in a surpiisingly shoit time every street was a tuibulent liver. The crceeks swelled, and. in a moment devastating iloods were sweeping through the Kent and Keith Creek valleys. Each creek drains an immense area of territory, and from every side came contributions to the wateis, until the creeks had become destructive tor 1 ents. The banks of the creeks were powerless to confine the mad waters, and they spread over the low lands, filling cellars and creeping up into first stories of residences, driving the occu pants of houses from their beds. While the fire department and police wcie woiking in Wood luff's addition it waspexceived that people liv ing around. Kent's Creek weic in distress. A ljoat was loaded into the patrol wagon and was soon at the water's edge. On Cedar stieot the scene was awful. Men, women, and children were out in the lain, many seeping and wiing ing their hands, and all excited. It was a min iature Johnstown Hood and somewhat similai in many lespects. Bcfoie the people weic haidly aware of it the watei came lushing down the cieek and ciept into their homes, chiving families out into the darkness and rain. The Majoi's paity did some valiant work in taking the people fiom their homes. All the lower parts of the city were Hooded and hundreds of people leudeicd homeless. The spectacle this morning piesented a scene of desolation and. ruin. The Steele of the Mil waukee road presents the worst appearance. For nearly half a mile the hack has been lifted bodily and canied from thirty to forty feet to the east. The rails under Ihe caisaie twisted and bent into achclc. All the railway com panies suffer heavily and eveiy bridge over Kent and Keith cieeks was swept away. Joliet, III., June 14. The heaviest and most damaging rain ever known heie fell steadily all last night in torrents, commencing with a deluging water-spout, which completely inun dated the northern, eastern, and southern por tions of the city. This moraine people in the southern portion of the city moved out In boats. Out-houses are floating around, and men and boys are sailing about on rafts and in boats. RAILWAY DISASTER. Ten Persons Hurt in a Smash-Up in North Carolina. Asiievilli:, N. C, June 14. The westbound mail tiain on the Richmond and Danville Rail load, which left heie at 4:25 yesterday after noon, was derailed two miles west of Marshal. Ten persons were hurt, some very seriously.

A large audience greeted tho first production of "Christopher Columbus; or, The Discoveiy of America," at this theatio last Wednesday evening, The success of tho play was assured after the first scene, and became more pio nounced as tho performance progressed, until the enthusiasm of tho audience becamo un bounded. Tho play succeeded because it was well written, was a literaiy treat, was interest ing at all times and exciting In places, was highly dramatic, wa6 sparkling with comedy, aud was well staged. Tho acting deserves special mention. Mr. Edmund Shaftesbury and Mi6s Maudo Beckwltk were tho stars, assuming the difllcult roles of Columbus and Beatrix hi a most satisfactory manner. Tho other charac ters wero well enacted, especially Bobadilla by Mr. Richard Raymond, and Wanita by Miss Ada L. Tounsend. Tho comedy of the latter was delightfully pleasing, aud she received an ovation. Not Asiatic Cholera. Maduid, Juuo 14. The Board of Health is making an inquiry regarding tho pievalenco of cholera in Fuebln do Rugat. In tho opinion of local phjslclaus tho disease is not of tho slatic type. THE AQUEDUCT TUNNELi. Gen. Casey Tolls the SVuiato "What It alight Cost to Complete It. The auswer of Gen. Casey, Chief of Engineers, to a lesolutlon of inquiry adopted by the Senate some days ago, respecting tho Washington Aqueduct, was laid before that body yesterday. The tunnel, as will bo remembered, was being constructed to connect tho reservoirs, and thus inciease the water supply of the city. An in vestigation, after moie than two millions had been spent on it, lcvealed the fact that, owing to the failure of the engineer in chaigc to exer cise the necessary supci vision, the construction was so faulty that work was stopped. Gen. Casey says it is feasible to complete the tuuuel according to the oiigiual plan, but he lecommends that a test bo flist made, coveilng a peilod of nine months or a year, to detei mine whether or not the leakage of water into or fiom the tunucl is sufficient to be a source of impunty or danger gicat enough to make its successful use questionable. To complete the tunnel, Gen. Casey says, would require $500,000; to complete the lcser voir, $110,000; total, $G40,000. Of this amount $3G2,027 is now available. To put a three-foot it on pipe through tho tunnel would cost, Gen. Casey says, $04ii,300. Besides the objection of increased costtheie is also that of inexpediency in using pipe at the pressure to which it would be subjected and the depth at which it must be placed. THE SENATE YESTERDAY. 3Iany Measures on the Calendar Dis posed or. All of yestei day's session of tho Senate was spent in the consideration of measures on the calendar, aud, under the wholesome operation of Rule S, many bills wete disposed of.

TiiECOLinciuA athletic cluh wilt., NOT SEE SUI,T,IVAN SlWlt. Tho Question Hoeidcd at a Blf? Planting or the Club Last Night An Animated, Hut fiood-Tcinpored Debate llcfoio tho Vote. Mr. John L. Sullivan will not spar with Mr. Joe Latinon for tho edification of the members of the Columbia Athletic Club on Tuesday evening next. This important question was decided last night at a meeting which was at tended by about tluee bundled members of the club. It was a question which had agitated the membeis for a couple of days to an extent which no other question had agitated them since the magnificent new club-house was opened In a blaze of glory. As with nearly all other questions, theie wero two sides to it, and the members wero pretty evenly divided, pro and con. Scdeep was the Interest aroused that scores of members who had not been In the club-house since the opening recep tion made it their business to attend the meet ing called for that night to speak and vote for or against the appearance of Mr. Sullivan. The more elderly membeis, who arc seldom seen there, were iu foice at tho meeting, and, as a mle, it is said, they voted to forego the pleasure of John L.'s appearance. The meeting lasted about two hours, and while the debate ou tho question was lively, it at no time became acrimonious or ill-tempered. Some amusing and impassioned (lights of oratoiy were Indulged In on both sides, but when the lesult of the vote was announced the defeated side accepted it with good nature, and there is no danger, all friends of tho club will heai with Dleasuic, that the haimony of the or ganization will be distuibed in the least by the incident. Theie was a lively exchange of opinion be foie President Hood rapped for older, but when the gavel fell eveiy "one quieted down to await developments. After a tew pralimlnaiy lcmaiks fiom Mi. Hood, Secretary Howard Peiry took the floor and i elated how the invita tion came to be extended to Sullivan by the board of governors. From the statement it appealed that on Tuesday Sullivan anil his tiainer, Barnett. wero in this city, eu route home from Pittsbuig. The champion was seen at Cliainbeilain's by a number of membeis of the club, and after a pleasant chat the subject of coming to Washington to give a sparring ex hibition was bioacheil, and Sullivan agieed to do it. When this was made known to "the gov einois they quickly met and, without a dis sentiug voice, agieed to ask him to come, be lieving fully that it would be a tieat to the sev eial bundled members who take interest in the manlv art. Secretary Perry made a very good speech and his points in defense of the'gover noiswere applauded. Following tho speech of Mr. Berry, there were about thirty otheis, on botii sides. The debate was cairled ou in a spiiited manner, though the be6t of feeling picvailed, and nothing was said that leflccted on the gover nors. The following lesolution was Anally in tioduced: 'Hesohed, That while we believe that the action of the board of governois in the matter of the pioposed Sullivan exhibition was actuated by a desire to promote the best inter est of the club, nevertheless we believe that it is inadvisable that nermission bv given for this exhibition." This was adopted by a vote of 157 to 134, the announcement being hailed with cheers by those who were an ti-Sullivan. Of course, it is recognised that this action places the board of governois in a 6omewliat embarrassing position, and naturally there wero conjectures as to the possibility of resigna tions. It is believed, however, that the goverc ois will take a sensible view of the actiou of the club aud let the matter drop, as it seems clear that the sense of tho meeting was in no wise hostile to them. The governors made a mistake, with the best intentions in the world, thiough not fully understanding the sentiment of a large number of membeis. THE NEW ARMORED CRUISER. A Deep Srj story as to tho Identity of the Successful JSidder. No decision has yet been leached as to tho award of tho contract for tho new armoiecl ciuiser, for which bids weio opened at the Navy Department on Tuesday, but it is expected that the Secretaiy will make known his conclusions to-monow. Theio are many varjiug opinions at the Dcpaitmcnt as to tho probabilities in tho case, nd tho identity of the successful bidder is a matter of deep mystery. Theie is a belief that tho Secietaiy does not want to ciowd up any of the yaids with work so that they will bo Indisposed to bid on tho foithcomlng battle ships. In other woids, that he wants to Insure an open competition en tho vessels, and in this view tho theory has sprung up that lie wants to divldo tho woik on the two vessels re cently proposed for between tho two largo es tablishments. If this is done the Cramps will get the contiact for tho 8,100-tou cruiser and tho Union lion Woiks that for tho 5,500-ton cruiser. I . 9 I The Grant and Dee Monument. Louisville, Ky Juno 14.

Ezoll, who was nominated for AttoinoyGoncial on tho Republican State ticket, has wiitten tho follow ing letter of declination: I wish to make it public that I cannot accept tho nomination for Attorney General ten dered me by tho recent so-called Republican Convention. I am a Republican and 1 would feel it an honor to accopt a nomination made by a convention of tho Republican party. As an eye-witness I know that lecent meeting at Montgomery was not such a convention. Excepting a fov gentlemen, (who weio there by mistake,) it was a meeting of negio politicians and deputy revenuo col lectois. An Instantaneous photograph of that meeting would bo a political education to thoso in power who mado 6iicli a meeting possible. If a time comes when such assem blages are not recognized as representing tho party, a convention could and would assemble in Alabama that would at least command tho respect of the couutry. Vevations Annoyance to Americans. Paius, Juuo 14. The recent debato iu tho German Reichstag ou tho continued exactions of passports from travelers in Alsaco-Loraino Bhows that no relief from this vexatious an noyance to Americans can bo expected. Tho severity of the rule enforced on tho fionticr has within the last year or two more than doubled the passport business of tho Amoiican Legation here. Americans who havo for a long tlmo been residents abroad, and who are unablo to swear to any fixed iutentlon of returning homo wljthin a reasonable number of years, continue to find difficulty in getting passpoits under tho instiuctlons issued by Mr. Bayard wheu Secretary of State, which aro still in force, Presidential Pardon Refused, Tho President has denied tho application for a pardon in tho caso of L.

Some Now Ideas Aro Dawning Upon tho Unfriendly Crltles "Who Instigated He ports Ahotit tho Emperor's Threats Against the Venerable l'i lnee. Copyright by New York Associated Picss.l BnitLiN, Juno 14. The hostile reports to tho effect that tho Emperor is becoming moic and more enraged over the levclations made by Prince Bismaick In inteivicws and that ho in tends to muzzle the ex-Chancellor aic laughed over in the Piincc's ciicle. Another idea is dawning upon tho unfriendly ciitics; that is, whether the statements made to special cone spoudeuts weic not ananged with the picvious knowledge and concurrence of Chancellor Von Caprlvi. Pi Ince Bismaick's studiously unstudied confidences have already assisted the Forelgu Office to a clearer view of the tendencies of for eign opinion, and have also helped to harmonize Caprlvi's relations with several foicign minis ters. A deputation of Conservatives from tho Fourth District of Potsdam, which is uow un represented in the Reichstag on accouut of the death of Heir Wedell Malchow, went to Fricd richsiuhc yesterday to ask Piince Bismaick to accept the candidature. He promised to givo the pioposal his favorable consideration, and this is taken to mean that ho will stand. The members of the Reichstag already foiscc that the Piincc's presence will pi oduco the group ing of a new party under his lead, composed of Conservatives, old National Llbcials, and a small section of the moderate Frcisinnigo paity. This gioup will piomincntly rcpiesent the small land owners, mauufactuicrs, and baukeis who aro opponents of the pro-Socialist policy, and is ceitain to secure the support of a num ber of Centitets, thus formiug a stiong com bination.

Hkklin, June 11. The semi-official an nouncement in the North Gtrman Gazette that Chancellor Von Caprlvi will accompany Em peror William ou his visit to the Czar couveits the meeting of the sovereigns fiom an ex change of imperial courtesies into a diplomatic event. Herr Von Schweinitz, the German Am bassador to Russia, ai rives hero fiom St. Peteisburg to-moirowiu connection with the interview, which has been fixed foi tho 2d of August. Emperor William, escorted by a squadron, sails from Kiel to Cionstadt, aud will lemaiu with the Czar three days. Piior to tho visit Signor Crispi, the Italian premier, is expected hero for a conference with Gen. Von Caprivi. He will seo Count Kalnoky, tho Austro-llungarian premier, en loute to Berlin. These movements havo a distinct i elation to a renewal of the negotiations fot a settlement of tho Bulgaiian question. This time tho nego tiations weio initiated at St. Pctersbuig. The Russian government persists in lef using to recognize Prince Ferdlnaud, but offcis to lecog nizo M. Stambouloff, the Bulgarian premier. The government, after the departure of Prince Ferdinand, will end a Russian com missioner to Sofia to offer the people as alternative candidates forthetlnouo tho Duke of Leuchtenberg, or Prince Kail, son of the King of Sweden. The Duke of Leuchteu beig, having maided a Montencgiain princess, has lees chance of acceptance by the European powers. Prince KarlJ Is sure of the English government's support. After tho election of a Prince tho Stamboulofl Ministry will bo dis solved and replaced by a StamboulofT-Zaukoff coalition. M. Stamboulofl' is ready to sacrifice Frinco Feidinand if his own position be assuied as a result of the airangement. Whatever may be the issues of the meeting at St. Petersburg they will not involve a change or iclatlons in the Dicibund. THE FRENCH ROYALISTS Havo Abandoned Hope of Khtahllshiug a Monarchy.

The speech of the Count of Paris at Richmond ou Thursday evening prais ing tho actiou of his son, the Duke of Oileaus, in ictumiug to Fiance In spite of the dccieo of exilo against tho Orleans family and seeking to servo his time in the French aimy provokes no feeling here, not even iu government cficles, neither has it aroused any enthusiasm among tho Royalists. Some of tho Royalist papeis of the widest chculation and influence go so far as to say that, for tho piesent at least, all hope of tho establishment of tho monarchy must be abandoned. The duty now Incumbent on tho Royalist paity, they uigo, is to tiy and adapt Itself to tho Repub lic, to lncieaso its influence in politics, and to gain contiol of tho government.
