Terrific J-umbllngs and reports startled tha citizens of Bingamon Creek, somo distance from Shlnneton, at D o'clock yesterday. They lushed from their homes, to find thehill pide caving in. and great avalanches of earth, stono and coal falling toward tho creek. It teemed that tho crust of the whole earth was being broken by somo subterra nean force, and tho spectators feared an earthquake with dire results. Ths.firsr. an.djSTcatcstcfaU o ter :r occurred at 5 o clock, making a most- terrific noise. At daj light it was seen that Jlie coal mines in that vicinity had been Vtterly destroyed. The strata of limestone above the coal had been rent, and the Muff, or hillside, a half mile long and twen ty lest deep, was precipitated into Bmg pmon CreUc below, a distance of 100 feet, forcing' the stream out of its natural courso Cumo distance. Many of tho bowlders in tho avalanche lucre thirty feet long and ten feet thick. 'containing S.WO cubi; feet. The falling of Stones after the general bnak sounded like tho bieaidng up of icu in a largo stream. Jlany largo trees came aown with the 'Socks.

' Quite a number of miners employed in the knlnes that wero destroyed were on their jvay to the mines, when the awful disturb fcance occurred, and were fortunate in such , narrow escapa from death. The destroyed jnines had been working a great many 'sears, but were properly propped and In xcellent condition. . The cause of the disruption is unknown. The owner of tho property is out of tho eity, and it is impossible to estimate the ioss, but It is said it will reach about $300,- 'tM, besides throwing many men out of em- tloyment.

Old Orchard Residents Meet and Take First Steps to Contest Su preme Court's Ruling. THEY WILL RESIST TAXATION. Webster Groves Officials Threat ened With Prosecution Under Injunction Issued by Judge Hirzel. Residents of Old Orchard, who are fight ing tho annexation of the village to Web ster Groves, met labt night at Franke's Hall and took the first steps to contest the decision of the Supremo Court, as it Is con strued by the city officials of Webster. Citizens of Old Orchard claim that the decision of tho Supremo Court did not cover the auestion of annexation; that it merely confirmed tho legality of Webster GroveVs charter as a. lourth-class city., and that tho carUffnat-ilurUiciioTi of. tie eburt-dia:no extend to; th question of the city's right to annex any territory- About 4 persons were pres ent and 200 new members were enronea, ana ti&M was raised to carry on the fight. Tho Anti-Annexation League of Old Orchard promises to make much trouble for the city officials of Webster Groves. Old Orchard is fighting the annexation because it deems Webster's taxes too heavy. An effort Is being mado by City Collector Farrlngton to collect all taxes assessed sinco tho fight began In the courts. In IS97, and, consequently, the amounts in each case are considerable. Before tho fight began many residents, who are now on the side of anti-annexation, were willing to pay their taxes if the city of Webster Groves would drop the three years' assessments when the annexation was in doubt. But by order of tho Board of Aldermen, City Col lector Farrlneton was compelled to Inform delinquents that they would be sued In the County Court If their taxes were not forth coming. In a speech last night to the members of tho league C S. Beber, who is Its attorney, said that he had notified the officials of Webster Groves that he would have them cited for contempt before Judge Booth if they persisted In filing suits for the collec tion of the taxes. Reber holds that as tho question of annexation is not admitted to be finally settled by tile Supreme Court tlie injunction that was iebucd against Web ster Groves last year by Judge Hirzel, pro hibiting the bringing of suit for unpaid taxes, i" still In fore. George It. Iyockwood. who Is the largest real estate owner In Old Orchard, also mado on address in the same tenor. While the primary reason for the fight Is taxes, tho antls arcue that geographical obstacles make It Impossible for sewer Improvements In Webster Groves to be of any benefit to Old Orchard, and that police protection for Old Orchard is not commensurate with that of Webster. J. D. Wilson presided last night, -with John L. Spanage as secretary and William S. Spiniclce treasurer. Mayor Fleming sas that Webster Groves Is not worrylns as the only true construction -which can be placed on the decision of the Supreme Court settle- the annexation question definitely and finally. He points out that the large taxpaers of the annexed district have paid their assessments. As the case !s settled finally. Judge Hlrzel's Injunction Is no long er in force and the city officials will file their fcuit after the time-limit has expired.

President Mc Kinley to-day paid his first vl'lt to this city since his election, and met with an enthusiastic reception. He came as tlie guest of the Union League, having been invited to attend tlie "Founders' Day" banquet of that organization. The President w-as ac companied by all the members of his Cab inet, with the exception of Secretary Root, who is In Cuba- Tho presidential party arrived here in a epeclal train over the Pennsylvania, at 3:30 o'elock this afternoon. An Immense throng was in waiting at the station, and tho ap pearance of tho President was tho signal for an enthusiastic outbreak of applause. Women waved handkerchiefs and silk flags and men raised their hats a President Mc Klnley passed. From tho train to his car riage Mr. McKinlcy carried his silk hat in his hand and bowed In acknowledgment of tho ovation extended lilin. The party was driven to tho residence of E. T. Stotesbury. and at 6 o'clock went to the Union league. As 'tlie President stepped from hl.s carriage and made his way up the steps of the building ho was- vociferous ly cheered. Insido tho clubhouse the mem bers crowded about the chief executive, who was compelled to submit to much hand shaking. Tho party then proceeded to the banquet room, where the covers had been laid for 341 persons. While the dinner was in progress Vice President elect Koosevelt arrived from New York. President McKmley spoke as follows: "Gentlemen of the Union League: An after-dinner speech is to mo always a dif ficult performance; an after-election speech, after a dinner, is a still more dilficult task, and I shall do little more than make ack nowledgment to this patriotic association for its unceasing loyalty to the Govern ment; for the earnest support it has givtn to the present administration in trying years through which It has passed, and ex press my slnce.-e thanks for the great honor this meeting and demonstration brine to me, which should bo shored by my distin guished associate on the national ticket, the Vico President elect, aa well as by those connected with ine In the conduct of public affairs. "Wo are always In danger of exaggera tion on an occasion of exultation over a political victory, and. while tho result Is mainly due to the efforts of our splendid party, there is sometimes a tendency to give too little credit to other forces, which, silent though they may have been, were none the less potential. Analyzes the Result. "Wo must not withhold generous ack nowledgment from that great body of our citizens vho, belonging to another party, powerfully assisted in the achievement of the result which you celebrate to-night, nor from that other large body, former mem bers of our own party, who. with honesty of purpose, separated from us a few years ago on financial issuer and have now returned and are home again to stay. "Nor Is any accounting for the victory either Just or accurate which leaves out of the calculation the almost unbroken column of labor engaged in mechanics and agriculture, which rejected the false doc trine of class distinction as having no place in this Republic, and which rebuked those teachings which would destroy the faith of American manhood in American character and American Institutions.

With This, It Is Believed, England and Germany Will Consent to the Plan of an Inter national Congress. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Washington, Nov. 24. As a result of the exchange of views to be made by the Pow ers, as suggested by Secretary Hay in his latest note, it is hoped that a satisfactory mothod of solving the Chinese difficulty will be adopted. It is apparent that the President wishes to supplement the work of the Ministers in Pckln by direct negotiations with the Pow ers. It Is not intended to withdraw the matter at once from the Ministers, but it is Intended to expedite their action and, fail ing in this, to seek some other method to end the unsatisfactory situation. A3 all tho Powers have assured this Government of their wish to secure a solution that China can agree to. there only remain details. Although Japan gave her adherence to tho Anglo-German agreement, tho authorities hero are sure that tho Toklo Government does not favor the execution of the Princes and Mandarins, but is rather in sympathy with the attitude of the United States, Rus sia and France. If Japan can be brought Into line, the bal ance will be so strongly against Great Brit ain and Germany that they will be forced to agree to a more moderate plan. It Is predicted by a diplomat to-dny that so long as the negotiations remained In the hands of the Ministers solution would be Impossible. The State Department under stands that Russia and France would like to use some other method of reaching an asrecment. but whether Great Britain and Germany will do so Is a question which the next few days will answer. The United fitatea have not yet submitted a proposition for an International conference to settle the Chinese question, but it Is admitted that It may be necessary to do so as a last resort. ENGLISH IIITTKll TOWARD AMERICA. London, Nov. 21. The bitterness with which the London Times attacks every move made by Washington in Chinese mut ters seems to increase dally, and is all the more surprising on account of the attitude of the British Foreign Office. The princi ples laid down in Secretary Hay's latest note were given to a. representative of the Associated Press by a British official before the reception of Mr. Hay's note us voicing tho opinion of the British Cabinet. Yet the Times comes out to'day with a vigorous protest against the idea of Mr. Hay's prin ciples being considered. Referring to the Cincinnati speech of Wu Ting Fang, the Chinese Minister to the United States, after saying that bis prom ising the United States better commercial chances when peace is restored would, in some countries, be resented as an injury, the paper adds: "But, Wu Ting Fang seems to have known his audience. All the comment an Influential American paper makes is that Wu Ting Fang knows that Americans, like all others, give their own Interests first place." Takes liny to Task. The Times then compares this attitude with that of LI Hung Chang on his trip around the world, during which, it is as serted, he acted on the conviction that pecuniary self-interest was the sole guiding principle of the peoples and Governments "which proved unsatisfactory recipients of the multitudinous promises which he failed Secretary Hay is taken severely to task tvphled by this gicat organization, were a mighty factor in the tecent contests.

According to authoritative stories current, not only in the American colony here, but likewise In smart F"rench society. Countess Botii de Castellane is at the pres ent moment undergoing religious Instruc tions at the hands of an eloquent Passion Ist Father, with a view to becoming a con vert to the Roman Catholic Church, into which she Is to he admitted with much pomp and ceremony before Christmas. Indeed, according to some, the ceremony is to take place here at the end of the next week. The recsnt action of tho Gould family In security? cuntrol of the mangement of tho fortune of the Countess and in thus ren dering the enjoyment thereof by herself and her husband entirely dependent upon the good tv 111 of George Gould naturally has had the effect of making the poltlon here of Countess Anna exceedingly unpleas ant. It therefore became incumbent upon the Countess to make up her mind Tihether she was going to throw in her lot with her brothers .and sisters or with her hus band and hlsfamlly. Apparently she has chosen the latter alter native, and with a view of giving a pledge both to the Castellane family and to soclety that she resents the action of George and Helen Gould, and that she has been in no sense of the word a consenting party to the steps which they have taken to prevent her fortune from being squandered, she Is now abandoning the faith of her family In Amer ica for that of her family In this country. The Castellanes are devout Catholics and her children have been reared in that faith. She is now joining, therefore, the church to which both her husband and little ones be long.

He declares General Kitchener meditates a reckless and ruthless extermination of the Boers, hoping to execute his atrocities amid silence. like that of the tomb of the Mahdl. He believes the British offlcera and men will nofendure this, and that Kitchener will stand revealed to this country as a scourge inexorable. Sir.
