Chinook which melted the snow to the top
ol the lower mountain ranges, to which
was added the heavy ralnfail of Wednes
day night, sent ail the smaller streams
over their hanks.
Whan this overflow reached the Skyko
mish, the havoc it wrought was terrific.
The water in the river rose rapidly and
soon i assed all previous high-water marJts.
Leaving the channel it came down the
valley, sweeping everything before it- In
one place it rushed through a railroad cut
that was supposed to be above high water,
fuily twelve feet deep. In all places be
tween Sultan and Wellington where the
road runs near ths river bank it is more
or less washed awsy.
The breaks range from fifty to tWO feet,
and In depth from three to twenty feet.
In one place near Index there are mora
than 400 feet, with a All of twenty feet,
srone. West of Skykomish there is one
washout 1.200 feet in length, and several
others ranging from 100 to 300 feet. Near
Salmon Is another break of I,WO feet.
The bridge over Miller river near Sky
komish is gone. This bridge was supposed
to have buUt high enough to be above
all damage.
Near Wallace there is a break of 1,100
feet washed out to a depth of four feet.
Near Index there are two slides, one about
fifty feet long and five feet deep, the other
about twenty feet long and twenty-five
feet deep.
All the cribbing In the valley is more or
less damaged.
Only the larger breaks have been noted.
Wherever the river reached the roadbed

way from Sultan to Wellington, a distance
of fifty miles.

SPOKANE, Nov. 24.—Word has been re
ceived at the local land office that the sec
retary of the interior has approved the ap
praisement of the sbandoned military post
at Colville and ordered the sale of the same
February 9. The property consists of
twelve lots and eighteen forty-acre tracts
lying about tiyee miles north of the pres
ent town of Colville. The appraised value
of the tracts ranges from 13.10 to 1120
apiece. The total acreage is 1.0*5.41. The
appraisement was made in August by Fred
Harrington. S. F. Sherwood and Jacob
By this sale one of the pioneer military
posts of the Northwest is wiped out. For
years the fort and surrounding settlement
contained the largest population of any
town in the Inland Empire. District court
was held there, and the town was the out
fitting point for many miners and trappers.
In IS&4 the troops at the old post were
transferred to the new barracks at Fort
Spokane, on the Columbia river. Since
that time the town has fast been passing
away, and a few years ago the last house
was destroyed by fire. Where once was a
prosperous, bustling community is now a
wilderness of deserted ruins and young
pine trees.

Tfcers and In. Xaek Exhibited to
tie Jir>—The Defease Will Try to
Prove the Wonaa the Hartere-.
NEW YORK:. Nov. SL—The trial of Mar
tin Thorn for the murder of William Gul
denauppe. waa continued today. The gal
leries of the coun room were most'y occu
pied by women, for whom the trial has an
extraordinary attraction. A fortnight ago
Mrs. Nack creaiad a. sensation by going
on the stand and accusing Thorn of hav
ing Wiled her former lorer. Guldensuppe.
Since that time the defense has chansed
its base, and, as Mr. Howe said in court
today, the defendant's lawyers will now
endeavor to prove through Thorn as the
principal witness that Mrs. Nack herself
committed the crime.
The early part of today's proceedings was
entirely tafcen up with evidence to prove
the corpus delicti.
Coroner Tuthill during his examination
stated that the cause of death was a stab
between the fifth and sixth ribs, which
penetrated the heart.
Later in the day the prosecuting attor
ney, through a fellow barber of Thorn,
connected htm with the possession of a
stiletto, the blade of which was over six
inches in length.
Some of the witnesses examined today
reside In Woodslde and they told of the
visits of a gaily dressed woman, who ap
peared In the vicinity of the cottage with
a man In light clothes on the day of the
alleged murder, June 25. They had also
wen a man wearing dark blue clothes
about the house and on the day in question
he was seen by one witness to go in and
out of the house frequently. Three of them
identified Thorn as the man in dark clothes
and two of them identified photographs of
Guldensuppe as being representations of
the man who wore the light suit. None of
them, however, had seen any traces of the
latter after he had entered the cottage on
that Friday morning.
Lawyer Howe requested the court to have
Mrs. Nack produced in order that she
might be Identified by the witnesses. The
request brought about a great deal of ar
gument, and finally Mr. Howe was com
pelled to swear out a writ compelling the
-heriff to produce her. Mrs. Nack was
brought into court after the noon recess,
looking much paler than when she ap
peared two weeks apo in the same court.
The morbid curiosity of the majority of
the spectators was gratified in the after
noon session by the production in court of
* piece of bone of one of Guldensuppe's
thighs to which was attached some shreds
of flesh. This ghastly exhibition was in a
slass jar. Dr. O'Hanlon explained that
he cut this portion off to show how minute
ly it fitted Into the corresponding piece of
bone, which protruded from the stump of
the lower part of the trunk.
Police Capt. O'Brien, formerly in charge
of the New York detective bureau, was on
;he stand for a considerable portion of the
afternoon, and told a great deal of what
Martin Thorn had said to him when the
prisoner was beirij? put through what is
known as "the third degree." Thorn at
that time denied all knowledge of the kill
ing of Guldensuppe. Capt. O'Brien also
'aid that when he was questioning Mrs.
Nack when she was arrested, four days
after the murder was alleged to have been
committed, she said: "Guldensuppe did
not treat m? rijrht. I love Thorn and
would die for him."
Tt was at that time that Mr. Howe said:
"We say right now that we will show
Mrs. Nack committed the murder and
what she said to the captain will bear us
out." The adjournment of court was until
Sentenced to Be Hangred.
