GANS & KLEIN ONLY A BUCKET BRIGADE. Sand Coulee Has a Big Fire and Has No Fire Apparatus to Fight It. The Losses Were Heavy and There Were Several Narrow HEoapes. Meatana Press Aeelocateon Winds Up a Pleasean Time at Aaeonda With a Banquet-Other State News. Special to The Indoependent. GQaAT FALLS, May 18.-The business por tion of Send Coulee was visited by a dis astrous fire early this morning, which de stroyed between $20,000 and $25.000 worth of property. It was discovered shortly after two o'clock, when flames and smoke were seen issuing from the rear of E. O. Ferrell's store. The alarm was Riven and everybody torned'out, but as the town has no water works little could be done to star the on ward march of the fire. A hastily organized bucket brigade, by drenohing the sides of the buildings on the opposite side of the street from the Afe, managed to save them. The entire row, consisting of saloons, stores end livery stable, was entirely cleaned out. The buildings were all one.-tory frames, with the exception of these oeoupied by Pat Foley's saloon and Higgins' restaurant, which were two-story frames, and Volk Brethers'. a two-story brick. Higgins' wife was lying ill in bed in the second story, suffering from confinement, and she came near perishing in the flames. The fire had reached the building in which she was before any one in the excited throng thought of her. Sam Dean, the postmas ter, ran upstairs and finding her in a help less condition, called for assistance. Strong bands came to h:s aid and the poor woman, frantic from excitement, was carried from the burning building to a plasce of safety. It is feared her mind may become unbal aneed from the terrible strain. The family of Pat Garrity were living over his saleon and barely eseaped with their livee. A few barrels of whisky and some bar furniture comprises about all that was saved from any of the. buildings. James Anthony, president of the Bank of Sand Conlee, owned a majority of the buildings, which were partially insured. Following are the losers who earried in surenes: B. 0. Ferrell, groceries, $2,600. insurance $500; Pat. Ferry, saloon, $$,000. partially insared; Tom Wheeler, livery stable. $2,000, insurance, $1,200; Volk Bros., $7,000, insurance, $4,800. The en sured were H. .I Higgins, restaurant, $1,600; Finlander's saloon. $1,000;' Club saloon, $1.000; Nuns' shoemaker and bar ber shop, $800; Pat Garrity's saloon, $1.900. The postolflce was in Ferrell's store. The mail on hand, the sacks, keys and a few stamps, were destroyed. There was $185 worth of money orders and some currency and stamps in the safe, which now lies in the cellar under a pile of ashes. Postmas ter Dean has wired the authorities at Wash in~ton for instructions, as he has not even a key with which to open the sacks. The origin of the fre is shrouded in mystery, though there are rumors of inoendiarism. STATE FREBS ASSOCIATION. A Banquet, a Visit to the Works, and Elee toon of Oicers. Special to the Independent. ANACONDA, May 18.-With sprays of wit and a torrent of eloquence the annual meeting of the State Press association closed a pleasant gathering in the elegant dining room of the Montana. The ban quet was elaborate and elegant.

Rev. Dr. Willis 0. Crate, of MeC.rmick University, Elected Moderator Anti-Sunday Opening. WASenrntro, May 16.-The Presbyterian general assembly met in one hundred and fifth annual session in the New York ar enne church this morning. The church was Unable to contain the throng which wished to witness the prooeedings. Among the notable figures in the assemnbly were Rev. Dr. Brxiggs, of the Union Theological seminary, whose hearing on questions touching his orthodoxy will again come no at this session, and Rev. Henry Preserved Smith, of the Lane Theological seminary, recently convicted of heresy by the Cinci. nati Presebtery, and whose case has gone on appeal to the synod of Ohio. Rev. Dr. C. W. Young, the moderato-, took his set on the platform at 11 o'clock. nEY. o. W. YOUNO. BniilRGo MODERATOL. Dr. Young delivered his annual address. The most notable portion of his discourse was that relating to the inerraney of the scriptures and upon that subject the doctor said: "Our own beloved church again and again expressed the firm and settled con viction that no discrimination as to truth fulness can be made between the different parts of the Bible; that from the beginning to the and, from the opening sentence in Genesis to the last verse In Revelations, the Bible is the very word of God. Of the same purpose, and that this should be a conclu sion. i clear, Is the positive testimony of Christ. From end to end he placed the seat of his royal assent upon the books. Upon no other theory or belief can we, as it seems to me, claim a divine, infallible, perfect constitution for the church. No apprehension should be felt as to the safety of the bible. No possi ble harm can befall it. Here to doubt is disloyalty to God; to fear is to sin. It courts the most searching investigation. It welcomes the sharpest criticism. From the flaming ordeal through which it is now passing it will come forth as it has from all other fiery tests, in its full integrity, with out so much as the smell of fire about it. And when the very names of those radical foreign rationalistic critics who are seeking to destroy its historical truthfulness, its perfect infallibility, with their widely her aided productions, shall have been buried in common oblivion, the bible, the whole bible history, biography, prophesy and doc trine, shall, by increasing millions of be. lievers, continue to be received, read and prized above all ea thly possessions as the very work of Almighty God." The assem bly then took a recess until this afternoon. At the afternoon session came the eleo tion of moderator. The nominations were as followse: Rev. Dr. Charles A. Dickey, of Philadelphia; Rev. Geo. Baker, of Phila. delphia, and Rev. Willis G. Craig, of the McCormick university, of Chicago. Rev. Alexander Adair. of Walla Walla. presented the name of Rev. Calvin Stewart, D. D.. of Washington, president of the Whitworth college, first as a home missionary, second as the pastor and president of the college I combined, and third as entirely free from any entanglement arising out of the controversies respecting the eastern educational institutions. During the nominations D'. Dickey was endeavoring to got the floor. Later he was recognized and said: "I will make what contribution I can to the harmony of this body by with dnawing my name. I know I am misun derstood, but if the Lord spares me through the assembly I will try to be understood." Considerable objection was made to grant ing the request, but finally the doctor was permitted to have his way. Dr. Stewart then withdrew his name and the assembly r roceeded to veto for moderator with Dras. liaker and Craig the only candidates. The I result of the ballot was announced as fol lowe: Crnig 324, lRiher 198; total 522. The announcement of Dr. Craig's election was received with slight app'ausne. Then the election was made unanimous. Moderator Craig's appearance was the signal for vigorous hand alapping. He wee Introduced to the reatring moderator and presented to thie general assembly. Dr. Young spoke of the unusual pleasu'e It gave him to welcome D)r. Craig, and in yoked God's bles-ing upon the labors of his unecesso anti commended him to the good granoes and kindly forbearance of the as sembly. Dr. Craig responded in a few words, exressing his profeund thanks for Sthe confidence reposed in him. Dr. Bartlett, pastor of the church, was introduced and made an address of wel. Scome. J. T.

NEW Yong, May 18.--The Methodist For elan Missionary society hia decided to make a final appeal to the president against the immediate enforcement of the Chinese exclusion law. The appeal, as formulated, says: "We earnestly beseech the president to use all means within his power to meet the just wishes of the Chinese government, and if it be yet possible to secure through diplomatic action, such an agreement be tween the two countries as will secure peace and harmony." The following was also issued: "In this time of peril to our missionary interests in China and of dis honor to the fair name of America, because of unrighteons and oppressive legislation, we deem it of the utmost importance that the whole church look to God for his divine guidance and hell,. We therefore recom mend that Sunday, May 28, be observed as a day of special prayer throughout the country, that our government may be led to just and right action in this emerg enoy, and that each a solution of the poend ing question may be reached as shall save missionary interests in China from disaster and secure just treatment of the Chinese in this country." 'The Presbyterian board of missionaries has ordered letters to be written to the four missions in China, in which injunctions to caution the conservative action were en larged on, and adding. "it seems to as de sirable that while matters are in suspense all of our missionaries should be in a situas tion where prompt communication will be possible and that visits to the interior should not be undertaken unless proper precautions are taken. The chief dancer Apprehended is a sudden orrising its the result of false reports scattered among the people who may take notion before the gov ernment can interfere." WASHIN.rro'N, May 18.-Durin2 the inter view between Secretary Gresham and the Chinese minister yesterday the minister as sured the seostary that he believed the Chinese government would not resort to any retaliatory measures, and thee would be nothing dlone by his government that would disturb the present friendly relations between the United States and China. ' he minister was of the opinion that no trouble would result fiom the law. Assistant Seeretary Curtis, of the treas ury department, has been ealled upon to decide whethner a Chinese saloon keeper is a laborer or a merchant. A Chinaman en gaged in the saloon business left New Yo:k for a visit to his home in China about six months ago and has now returned. He is denied entrance and the case has come here for a final decision. The mandate of the supreme court of the United States to the circuit court for the southern district of New York, affirming the decision of that court in the exclusion cases, was transmitted yesterday. This disposes of the matter finally unless the case again comes before the court on a new question. The present indications are pointing strongly to the assumption that a copy of the majority opinion of the court will certainly forwarded to the Chinese government through diplomatic channels before any extended system of hostile cu tion under the law will he inaugurated. The probabilities seem to favor a pro longed status quo on the Chinese expulsion question. DETROIT, Mich., May 18.-Three China men who evidently rowed across from Can. ada are being held by the federal ofigerh., who have sent to Washington for inatruo tions as to their disposition. They are in doubt as to what they should do with the celestials, in view of the recent orders sus pending arrests under the Geary exclusion law. PontTLAD, Ore., May 18.-Twelve Chi nese called to-day at the internal revenue office and expressed a desire to register. They were refused. THE STORM IS OVER. aut the Rivers Ia Ohio and Pennsylvania Are /Booming. PITTSBUnB, May 18.-The sun is shining and the great storm which has prevailed over eastern Ohio and western Penneylvania for three days is believed to be over. The Allegheny and Monongahela rivers are still rising, but the waters will hardly reach the danger line and no serious damage is expected here. At Beaver Falls the town is at fever heat, as the people expect the town to be swept away. The upper dam is re ported as weakening and liable to give way. If this should ocour a body of water seven miles long, half a mile wide and eighteen feet deep would be ready to dash on the lower end of Beavrer Falls, Fallston, Bridge water and the other towns below. Strenu one, and it is believed, successful efforts are being made to prevent the break. At New Castle the situation is very grave. The water is five feet higher than was ever known before and still rising. All of last night families were taken from their houses and the work is still going on. A break is threatened in the levees west of the town at any moment, and the police and tire departments have been sent to warn the people at South New Castle to flee to the hills. A break will cover that part of the city to a depth of at least twelve feet. Over ten miles of track between here and Sharon has been washed out since mid night. A large railroad bridge went down this morning with twenty loaded cars. Several bridges and houses floated down this morning and the carcasses of dead ani mals ill the stream. Boats are plying in three feet of water in the principal streets and business is entirely evspended. At Johnstown the Conemaugh and ntony creek are booming. It is feared that great dnamage will be done in the lower part of the city. It ie estimated that the damage unstained tby railroads in the flooded districts of Ohio and Pennsylvania is over a million dollars. Railway communication is gen erally out oiy in these districts owing to the washing out of bridges and culverts, and the esubmergenoe of the tracks. CLFvvYELANIn, 0., May 18.-The rain which has bena steadily falling since Sunday night ceased early this morning, after a precipitation of tour and three-quarter inohes. As the waters recede the property losses along the banks are found to be greater than at first supposed. By noun the water had receded three feet. As feet as it retired men wore set to work in the factories and other snubmerged buildings clearing away the accumulation of mud. AL.xiANDEk Minn., May 18.--The dam holding the water from Lakes Ida and Millona has given way and a mighty flood is raging down Long Phairie river. All bridues west of town are washed out or staved with ropes and impassable. Much damage may result. A.l.utsr, Me., May 18.-The Kennebec river is on a ramrpage. Whio, es are covered with from four to ton feet of water. All eoot shedl are submerged and many cellars are flooded. TO KEEP lil FROM WRONG.

LaBlanehe was fought all over the ring in the fourteenth. McCarthy was half knocked to the floor, but recovered and LaBlanehe was nearly out when the gong struck. Both men were weak in the fif. teenth, and in clinches fell several times.

CaOthy landed a right on La Blanche's jaw, and he barely got up in time to be thrown through the ropes. La Blanche was knocked to the floor with three heavyrr rights and counted out.
