Tweaty Miles er tbe Great Sfortbera'a Main line VTasbed Out Olb.r ftoaas Damage. TaooMA, Wash., Nov. 21. Lost week's floods In Snohomish and Sultan River valleys washed out twenty miles of track on tho Great North ern's main line between Snohomish and Index. Tho large bridge at Skykomish has gone out. and tho one at Index Is partly in tbe river. It will tako at least four weeks to put this plcco of mountain road In shape for regular trains. It la probable that In the meantime tho Great Northern will turn Its business west of Spokane over to the Northern Pacific, which Is open from end to end. Superintendent Foster of the Everett and Monte Cristo Railroad, owned by John D.Rockn feller, report heavy damage on that line. About the only evidence remaining ot the ten miles of road built through Stlllaguamlsh cation is tbe six tunnels. The water in this canon was many feet higher than ever known before. This section of road will be entirely rebuilt next spring by a longer route, avoiding the canon. The road will not be operated this win ter east of Granite Falls, preventing shipments of ore from tbe Silverton district and John D. Rockefeller's Monte Cristo mines. The largest mines will close down. Skagit Valley, lnoludino; Mount Vernon and other towns, has been flooded, the water break ing through twelve-foot dikes. Twenty miles of farms between Mount Vernon and Puget Sound were under four to seven feet of water yesterday. To-day it Is falling some.

Charles Schaplro of 00 Canal street, a young Russian Jew and a clothe pressor by trade, shot and klUed Louis Lelberman of 123 Henry street Just before 0 o'clock last evening. Ho had previously shot at his sweetheart, Yetta Gordon, a cousin ot Lelberman, and at Mrs. Yetta Silverman, also of 123 Henry street, but missed both. Some six months ago Bchaplro was Intro duced to Yetta Gordon. She U a good-looking girl of 20 years, and Schaplro toll In love with her at once. Yetta has Uved with Lelberman since she come to this country from Russia two yoars ago. Schaplro went often to see Yetta, and In less than two month he had gained her consent to marry hor. He bought a diamond engagement ring and called on her oftencr than ever otter that, coming by day aa well as night. That awakened the girl's sus picions. She asked him how he made his living, how ho would support her In the event ot her marrying him. Ho repUed evasively. Ho did not dress very well, and at last Yetta told him point blank that he must work or she would never marry him. She did not discard him Im mediately, but two weeks ago there cams a climax to his courtship. Tho girl cried, and Schaplro wrote out an agreement calling the engagement at an end, and giving Yetta per mission to marry whomsoever she wished. He nroto the agreement under protest, and trem bled when the witnesses signed tho document. One ot theso witnesses was Louis Lelberman. Yetta did not return the engagement ring. She said tbat sho had lent Schaplro 923, and tha. sho would not give up her only security untU this had been refunded In full. Bcbapiro did not deny this, and went away. He went back once or twice, but was received coldly. He Is said to have passed the house whero Yetta Uves many times during the time that elapsed between than and but night, bchaplro came that way about 5 P. M. yesterday. There was a great crowd beforo the tenement at 123 Henry street. The people of the crowd had the word "wedding" on their Ups and It waa plain to Schaplro that somebody was going to be married there. He still loved Yetta, and who elsen that bouse but Yetta would bo marry lngl Ho hod: a revolver, 32-calIbre, a cheap one. In his pocket. He would stop Yetta mar rying, so he elbowed his way through the mob Into tho bouie. Tho marriage was tbat ot Miss Katio Rubenstein to Mr. Rudolph Goldstein, and it was a great event in that locality, as the contracting parties were well known. Schaplro pushed his way into tbo apart menta of Lelberman on the first floor, and found himself in a room with Mrs. Silverman and Yetta, who was dressed very charmingly In red, for the was ono of the wedding guest. Schaplro, the women say, began to beg Yetta to marry him. Sbe refused emphatically, and Schaplro struck her In the face, blackening her eye and knocking her down. He shot at her as she lay on the floor, but didn't hit ber. Mrs. Silverman ran Into the rear room, picked up her baby from the bed. and, screaming "Murder I" started to run cut in tho boll. He fired at her when the door was between them, tho bullet breaking the gloss, but doing no harm to the woman. Lelberman, who had heard the shots, set out to seize Schaplro as he tried to cseapo through the haU. Tbe clothes presser fired point blank at bis would-be capturer. His bullet penetrated tbe abdomen and Lolberman sank to the floor gnwinlng.-.Yettaflordon and Sarah Lelberman. o cousin of Lelberman, Jumped for Schaplro and were on bis back in a moment. Tbe re volver was knocked from his hand. Through a nearby door came a dosen of the wedding guests who leaped over the wounded man to get Scha plro. First of all came Meyer Lelberman, a son of the wounded man: then Mrs. Silverman and the bridegroom. Schaplro was soon on his knees and a dozen pairs of hands reached to claw htm and as many pairs of shoes to kick him. Schaplro screamed for mercy as blood poured all over bis face. In the crowd outside were flvo of tho'Madison streot station detectives. They hod been sent down by the Sergeant to look after the crowd. Tbey were scattered all through the mob when they heard tho shots and the screaming ot tho women In the house. They pushed everybody aside and forced tbetr way into the tenement. There they found the hall so Jammed that they had to go over people to get to the shrieking Schanlro and his victim. An ambulance was called at once from the GouTerneur Hospital and Lelberman was taken there. He died at 12:15 A. M. All those Involved in the row were taken to the Madison street poUco station. bergeant Brown, titer examining tbe wit nesses, tent Schaplro to the hospital to have him Identified by Lelberman, who was con scious until a short time before his death. Schaplro said be went to the bouse to get bis diamond ring and that Yetta refused to give it up. He declared be didn't owe her a cent, and that, when he shot. It waa In self-defence. MRS.

Murphy, the facts came out as to why Mr. C P. Huntington bought the Colton mansion on NobHiU. Huntington seldom spends more thsn four or six week In San Franolsco every spring. His custom wo to rent a suite of rooms at the Palace Hotel. Six year ago he was occupying, with his wife, a suite of rooms on the sixth floor ot tbo Palace Hotel, when a severe earthquake occurred. Mrs. Huntington was greatly alarmed and thought the hotel waa going to fall. When the shock was over sbe told her hus band she would never come to San Francisco again unless be would buy her a private resi dence buUt ot wood in which sbe would feel safe. So Huntington commissioned Joe Rea ding, now in New York, to look for a bouse, and Redding chose the Colton bouse, which many regard as the handsomest residence on Nob Hill. The price paid was 8270,000. It is vacant during tbe greater part of the year, as the Uuntfnglons never use it more than two months. Now Mrs. Colton is suing Murphy to recover 52,500. which, she says, be retained for a fee." lurphy said this money was paid to Bedding, while he got nothing. He sued Mrs. Colton re cently for 98,000 commission, but lost on a technicality. .Now he declares he will bring an other suit for V 16.000.

Horace Payne of the Mis souri Conference baa been conducting the meet ings, and he has worked up such great interest that all the ministers of the county agreed to assist at the services last night. The big meet ing was thoroughly advertised. The subject announced by the Rev. Mr. Payne wast "The In of greed and tho certain damnation of blm who appropriates that which Is another'." The large meeting bouse Is tn a grove near th edge ot town. Seven preachers were present, and the farmers from all over the county at tended. They hitched many fine teams to the trees around the church. The minister spoke eloquently, and, strangely enough, all ot them referred to horse stealing and the evils of horse trading as practiced by many simpers a suuot g the worst evils of the W est. After the meeting was over It was discovered that a raid had been made on the fine horse hitched around the church. Sixteen ot the most valuable horses In the county were stolen, together with two fine buggies, Tho raid was cvidontly arranged in advanco and partici pated in by several skilful horso thieves. No trace of the gang has been found, though a num ber of armed posses have been beating the ravines along the river to the north.

THE "ICOXOCLAST" DEXOUA'CED. Tbe Bsv. Barvey Carroll Cbaraelertioa tbe Paper Bitterly at a Paaeral. Waco, Tex.. Nov. 21. Funeral services were held to-day over the remains of W. A. and J. W. Harris, the newspaper men who wtre killed on Friday in a street light with Col. Gerald. A great concourse of mourners attended. The Rev. Harvey Carroll, who preached the funeral oration, created a sensation by denounc ing In unbridled language the cause of the i tragedy. He referred to tbo bad blood which has been engendered by W. C. Brann' Icono eltut, and Its assaults on Baylor University. Continuing the narrative to the Incident of Friday, he declared that tbe Harris brothers bod died at their posta In tho discbarge of their duties. Tho card which they hod re fused to publish for Cob Gerald, the preacher sold, wss slanderous. He asserted that so long as the Iconoclast Is permitted to continue Its anarchistic course. Just so long will It be respon sible for disasters and tbe wringing of hearts. Col. Gerald's left arm was amputated yester day, and It Is feared that the wound ho received in tbe side may iaute blood poisoning. Tbe controversy which precipitated the light of Fri day had its origin about two years niro, when an Oriental girl, brought to Baylor University to bo educated as a Christian, became a mother. Sho accused tbe son of ono of tho chief function aries of the university. There were cross charges of abandonment. Editor Brann espoused the young woman's ca so and heaped tbe bitterest Invectives on the University faculty. Since then he has repeatedly charged that female students at tho university have been forced to return borne to conceal dis grace. Brann has been mobbed twice by friends of the university in the last six w eeks. IS TUE "MUEDERED" MAX AZITEt Tbey Tbtnb Be in Iowa, aad Ibe Xevak Murder Trial nee Beea Terminated. Cedar Rapids, la., Nov. 21. The Novak .murder trial ha suddenly terminated by the alleged discovery of the supposed dead man, Ed. Murray, alive. There is little donbt tbat the man whom Novak waa being triod for killing Is alive and in Seattle. The local authorities have been notified that Charles Wood, recently of Vinton, la., walked Into the Seattle police station and said that he had met and talked with Murray. Wood said there could be no mistake about It; that ho not only saw Murray, but met and shook hands and talked with him In a saloon. They hod talked only a few minutes together, when Murray stepped to the doer as If to call a friend, went out, and failed to return. Though Wood searched all over town, be could find no trace of tbe man again. Wood Is a man of high standing, and his word Is believed. The Novak caso would nave been submitted to the Jury to-morrow.

It will be a badly emaecu , lated edition of tbe Paunccfote-Olney treaty, , and valuable only as recognizing the general j i plan ot arbitration, and perhaps as tending to I allay excitement in case the relations bar, -S tween the two countries become strained; By express stipulation all questions affects I ing the national honor, the national integ- rlty, or the vital political Interests of eltheC a country are not subject to arbitration. By tha J f phrase 'national Integrity 'is meant all qucs-n '?. tlons relating to national domain or territorial ' -' rights, so that the Alaskan boundary dispute ' could not be arbitrated under the general treaty. . Tbe phrase 'vital political Interests' refers to . the Monroe doctrine.
