CORPORAL ALBERT WON TOO Ho Took Fourth in the Individual Drill Washington Roys Were Only Seven I'olntu llehlnd tho Champions in tho Maiden Contest Chicago's Crack Zouave Company Xot in It. St. Louis, Mo, July 7. Between 3D.O00 and 40,000 people were at Camp Hancock to-day to see the windup of the interstate drill and encampment. Tlie progrinmio consisted mostly of sacred concerts by the bands in camp. In the afternoon the last contest or the encampment took place. It was the in dividual drill for four prizes aggregating in value $175. "When the drill commenced twenty-five men, representing each of the companies in camp, were in line, but soon all were dropped out but four. The competition between these was close, the drill being verv risid. The rirt man to be caught was Corporal Albert, of the National Riiles, or "Wash ington, D. C, then Sergt. Charles Purfee, of the "Walsh Zouaves, of St. Louis, fell out, followed by Private "W. F. Thompson, of the Branch Guards, of St. Louis, leaving Corporal Arthur E. West, or the Phoenix Light Infantry, or Dayton, Ohio, as the winner of the first prize. ANNOUNCING THE PRIZE "WINNERS There were many surprises when at the dress parade toon after the winners of prizes weie announced. In the free-for-all infantry content for five prizes the con tent waclotest between the Branch Guardr, of St. Louis, and the Belknap Rifles, of San Antonio, Tea.., v. Inch won the lirst and second prizes, respectively. One of .the judges said the latter company lost points on its inspection becauie of the condition of the riHes. while its drill was nearly equal in excellence to that of the Branch Guards. The first prize of $3,500, with a $1,000 cup, which went to a hcn.e company, was declared by one of the judges to be entirely oMt of nroionion to the other prizes of this class. Tne medal offered for the captain making the best pergonal score during the drill ws awarded to Capt. Sinclair, command ing the Branch Guards. 'the Bullenc Guards, of Kansas City, won the first prize in the maiden infantry Mass. with the National Iblles, of "Wash ington, a close tecond. In the artillery contest, in which four crack batteries were entered, Indiana commands carried off the two first prizes, with the Dallas Battery but a few points behind for third prize. SURPRISES IN ZOUATE CLASS. There were the most surprises in the Zouave class, where three prizes were of fered and four companies competed. There was considerable disappointment that the famous Chicago Zouaves did not get a mention. This command has justly been called the first Zouave company in the country be cause of its having won more than twenty fust prizes during its lifetime and many lesser ones. An analysis of itB score card showed where it failed to come up to the standard of the other companies In the point of accuracy it was perfect, while its mark for inspection was as high, if not higher, than in the cases of its competitors m thib drill It, however, came far below tlie other companies m the number of move ments and in the quickness of their execu tion, wiiiie its mark for work that was dis tinctly Zouave was considerably lower than that received by the winners. The Neeleys, of Memphis, were the win ners of the fint prize, with the "Walsh's of St. Louis second, and the Hales. of Kansas City third There was considerable sur prise that the "Walsh Zouaves, who have been out of commission for the past two years, should win iece-nd prize DRILL MASTER'S GOOD "WORK. But that they did so was the result of the good work of theirexcellentdrill master and Capt "William B Heyman, at one time a member of the famous Busch Zouaves of this city. Not a member of his company had drilled before for two years until only two weeks ago when Capt Heyman called the men together and through the hardest kind of work, brought them up to their old point -or excellence and within three points of taking the first prize. Several of the companies left camp im mediately after dress parade and the others will take their departure on the early trains to-morrow. Following is the list of prize winners, percentages: Free-for-all infantry, six entries, first, prize. $3,500 in money and national drill association St. Louis cup, valued at $1,000 Branch Guards, St Louis, with a per centage or 1.159.D0, out of a possible 1,220 points.

JACKSON CITY DRY AS DUST AllSnloon-keopers.Notiried That They iluht Keep Their Places Cloved on Sundays Hurry Cnndler Soured on the "World Even Evangelist Mntcli- ott Deprived of Ills Hull. Scarcely a week has elapsed since Sheriff Palmer, of Alexandria couuty, took the oath of office and entered upon his duties, and already his work or rcronn has begun. Saturday evening, accom panied by one of hia-deputies, ho vi&ited the saloon keepers or Jackson City, and in a terse, business-like wny, notified them that when the first slanting rays of the Sabbath sun gilded tlie old Potomac, every saloon in the town must bo tightly closed. He further announced that he expected this condition of arralr6 to exist through out the day, and even to keep up Sunday night. Tho sheriff didn't act or look as though he made these modest requests in a Joking way, so the rum sellers thought it best to obey. As a result an atmosphere of parch ing dryness hovered over Mud street, Jackson City's only thoroughfare, and the regular contingent who lounge there on Sundays were going around with disgust and a choking sensation. NOTHING BUT ICE WATER. The front door to Harry Candler's place was the only oue not locked and barred, and tho reporter eutered the reEort made famous by Eddie Desmond and others of his ilk. Harry Candler and his brother Lee were there, and several male and female frequenters were upstairs. There was no evidence of outside busiuess.bowever, and as Harry provided the reporter with a glass of ice water he politely regretted that he could accommodate him with nothing stronger. EddieDesmond.bytheway.haEdeparted gone to hunt up a more salubrious clime. Saturday night the victory of the safe burg lars was celebrated in great shape, Des mond taking partintheblow-outpreparatory to saying good-bye to the fertile safes of "Washington A great many visitors from the city took part in the celebration, male and female admirers of Candler and his ac quitted friend, goiug over by tho hack full. Perhaps Saturday night's entertainment accounted for the sloppy conditiou of the bar yesterday. narry Candler himself has experienced a change of heart toward all the world since Marion Brandon , his colored cook, was sentenced to ninety days in jail by Judge Cole for contempt of court. His once cheerful disposition seems soured, and he no longer greets the reporters with a smile and asks them in. MISSIONARY MATCHETT SHUT OUT. He has even gone back on Matchett's mission, and when that enterprising evange list knocked at the door yesterday fore noon, expecting to be admitted in order to deliverhisusualsermon, the only answerwas an echo of his knock. He gazed around and saw that the brilliantly painted sign board that has for several weeks past her alded Matchett's Mission to the world, was missing. Then he walked sadly up the rail road track to where the freight cars threw a shadow on the mud, and with only his bald head between him and the sun, he preached the gospel to the crowd ofloafers, half of whom were asleep. Mr. Matchctt has also started Sunday services at "Waterloo Station, about a mile the other side of Jackson City, and every Sunday in the future he and his helpers will hold forth in true Methodist style. A Sunday-school will also be started next Sunday, as several of the colored families in the neighborhood of the brick yards have requested his aid in this direction. Mr. Mntchett said that one of his converts, Lee Candler, Harfy's brother, will join church on probation this week. He has almost given up hopes of converting Harry, to be brought into the fold. His gentle ways and winning smile have deserted him; he thinks he has been treated badly, and he doesn't believe in religion, anyhow. REFORM AT ROSLTN. Sheriff Palmer's reforming influence was felt at Roslyn yesterday, as well as at the railroad resor'tat the end of tho Long Bridge. The saloons were closed, the gambling-houses were cloeed, tho beaten track leading to the policy dens were untrod, and altogether tho decent inhabitants of the place experienced a day of peaceful rest. There were no drunken brawls such as frequently disturb the Sunday quiet of the place, no shouting negroes staggered through the streets, and no fleeced victims of the gambler's wiles wended their way sadly down thej'otomac side as they wero wont to do in Sundays gone by. The boats running to Dixie's landing did a good business, but their loads were composed of pleasure seekers of a different sort. Few "were seeking to buck the tiger rHAtmiFT'VTED OF WATER-h Jj "- -' - l- - II S or acquire jags, and those few were dis appointed. Of course liquor could be procured, and it would take weoks of earn est effort on the part of the uew sheriff to bring things to such a state that it cannot be procured, but, altogether, the day was freer from drunkenness and disorder than it has been for many Sundays past. Sheriff Palmer has evidently started out not to disappoint tlie element that se cured his election and defeated Veitch. That his good work may go on is the de vout prayer of every respectable citizen of tho county. ULTIMATUM OF I'CORKLE If 'Operators Can't Resume Work To-day He Will Order Out Troops. Labor Lender Lawless Telegraphs That lie Has Ordered' All Strikers to Cetifee -Carrying Guns. Charleston, "W. Ta., July 7. Gov. Mac Corkle staled to-night that he would try to induce the operators in the Elknorn and Blucrields regions to make an honest ef fort to resume to-morrow, and if they said they could not, he would at once order troops out to protect all men who wanted work. The governor says he is confident troops will have to be ordered out to-morrow. However, telegrams received at the State house from the Elkhorn region to-day in dicate that there is apparently no cause for immediate apprehension of trouble there. Dispatches were received from Lawless, the local labor leader in that section, stat ing ho had ordered all the strikers to cease carrying guns as per order of the governor, except two or three who will act as his body guard, as hlTiays his lire has been threatened by some of the guards em ployed by the company Tho governor replied by saying he was glad to hear of tho decision of the leaders and warning him tha turbulent demon strations must cease or troops would be called out to suppress them. A telegram from the Governor's private secretary, Capt J. B. "White, at Elkhorn, says that a passenger train on the North Fork branch of the Norfolk and "Western was derailed last night by someone throw ing a switch, but that no one was hurt. The dispatch states that the men are all quiet to-day and few are moving about. The Governor said this morning that he had been advised that United States Mar shal Garden and eight deputies arrived at Elkhorn to-day and took possession of the railroad property. Tills was the fir.st news Gov. McCorkle or Ad)t. Holly received that the federal authorities were taking a hand in suppressing the trouble. Lick Branch colliery will try to start to morrow with twenty new men. The sheriff and deputies will bo on hand to guaid them. "Whether their services are needed depends upon how much sineienty thcre was in Mr. Lawless' professions of a desire to prevent disordei. RIOT VICTIM JVURXED.

Tt tTPBR Lives Lost in a Furious Gaie on Lake Michigan. SEVERAL NARROW ESCAPES Torrents of Ihiin Fell in Chicago and "Wind and Lightning Swept the City Fun-irandlo Signal Tower Bio wnOver audits Occupant Fatally Injured Reports from "Wisconsin. Chicago, July 7. One of the most furious wind and rain storms known in this vicinity. foryearjS pasged over the city about Gclock this evening, coming from tho northwest. The day had been in tensely hot and there were many people out on the lake in Eailboats, and as the storm came very suddenly it is feared that several lives were lost. The different life-saving crews have been busy all evening tracing rumors of capsized boats, people clinging to planks, etc.. and up to 10 p. m. have brought in the occupants of three capsized boats, all in a very exhausted condition. No trace ot any others has been found up to this hour and it is Loped that no more are out. The police at the Cottage Grove avenue station on the south side claim that they distinctly saw a tail boat with three occu pants disappear during the height of the gale and that nothing was seen of it again during daylight. NO TRACES FOUND. The life-savers r-nn the South Side cruised about that locality for Esme time, but round no trace3 or a wreck. It is probable that more missing persons will be reported from the various suburbs at a later hour. Up to within twenty minutesjbf the descent of the storm upou the city the sky had been clear and the sun shining brightly. Suddenly heavy black cloudsbegan toga ther in tho northwest and a few minute3 later a terrific gale or wind, accompanied by a perfect Hood of rain aud furious thunder and lightning, was sweeping over the city. Many basements were flooded all over the city and in some instances-fire engines had to be called for to pump out stores. Several houses in the outlying districts of the city were struck by lightning and seriously damaged. Two small residences were com pletely destroyed, but no one injured. At the height of the storm, a signal tower beside the Panhandle tracks, at Adce street, was blown over and the tower man, August Boedlow, sustained fatal injuries. Several others were reported painfully cut and bruised by flying debris. At 11 p.m. the police and life-savers think that all the missing boats, both row Loats and sail boats, aro accounted for, al though it is possible that a few may yet bo out. THREE PROBABLY LOST. The people in the boats which were blown out into tho lake by tho hurricane report having had an awful experience. So far tho only fatality actually verified is tho case of Charles Klein, John Ross and Chailcs L. Shook, who wero out in a rowboat when the storm burst, and of whom no traco has yet "been round. The yawl boat or tho yacht Hattio B. was picked up this evening off Twenty-sixth street, but it is thought tho yacht has weathered the gale and made some other port. The damage to telegraph and telephone wires northwest of the city was very great. Every telegraph wire was prostrated, many poles being carried away, and it was 10 o'clock before telegraphic communi cation was restored to Milwaukee. Even then it was very precarious, there being but two very shaky wires working, while the demand for service was enormous. Great gangs of repairers are out from both ends of the route. CAME NEAR DROWNING. Bob Terrell and John Fitzgerald, who were out in a rowboat when the storm came up, had a narrow escape from drowning, If the tug Success had not been near they, in all probability, would have gone down. The boatcapsizedand tho tug started to tho rescue. A line was thrown, which waq grabbed by Fitz gerald, and he was pulled on board the tug. Alec Lonto, engineer of the tug, seeing that Terrell was sinking, jumped in to save him. Terrell grabbed the engineer in such a manner that he was unable to use his arms. A line was thrown them from the tug and just as they wero sink ing, the engineer by an effortr managed to grab the line and both wero pulled on board the tug. Terrell is in a serious condition from his narrow escape from drowning. Rescued from Drowning. Cape May ,N . J., July 7. A man who regis tered at Congress Hall as Charles B. Serly, Baltimore, was rescued from drown ing to-day while bathing in the ocean, by Assislant City Solicitor A. Bertram Kelley, of Philadelphia. The man had gotten be yond his depth and became exhausted. Determined Effort to Enforce Exelse Law -Crowned with General Suc cess Boatand Hotel Burs Closed. New York, July 7. To-day in police parlance was a dry Sunday. That is,.ac cordlngto the police, the saloons were doted and tlie excise laws were being enforced entirely. This, however, was not strictly true. A stranger in New York might travel the whole city over without being able to quench his thirst, but the man who knew the bartender or the saloon-keeper or the "man at the door" had no need to go thirsty. The police, however, made a determined effort to enforce the laws, and doubtless-tlie saloons were as tightly shut as they can be cloned during the operations of the pres ent laws. Where it was believed that the laws were being violated officers were stationed at the door, and the 6aloon-keeper was either obliged to shut 2p or remain inside while no customers were allowed to enter. .Cauui iwjbos ornpooojd jo poqioui Sjiij; of them into submission, and-m congequence nearly hair or the saloons on the main avenues had their blinds drawn up and were empty. As many as one-hair of the corner saloons, however, kept the blinds down and managed in acme ways or other to serve an occasional customer. At the up-town hotels the excise law was well observed. AH of the bars were closed and guests were terved wth drinks only when a meal was served. The drug stores sold little liquor. Even the excursion steamers sailing from the city closed their bars. Altogether the determination of the police commis sioners to enforce the excire law was car ried into execution with unexpectedly rigidity. GASOLINE'S DEADLY "WORK. Husband and "Wife Killed by an Explo sion mid Home Burned. Chicago, July 7. By the explosion of a gasolin" stove to-day, Mr. and Mrs. Gnnn wald were burned to death and the resi dence burned to the ground. Mrs. Gunn wald, without extinguishing the flames, started to pour oil into the reser voir above when there was an explosion. She was covered with burning oil and in an instant every iwrtion of her clothing waa ni flames. Her agonized cries brought her mother and husband to the scene. The old lady was so overcome at the sight of her daugh ter in flames that she was iowerless to act. The husband, unmindful ot ht-3 danger, trwd, without success, to put out the flames. He then picked up the burning form of his wife and carried her to the yard. By this time his clothes were on fire and ha ran franttaally around the yard, crying for help. Finally, rolling on the ground, ho managed to pat out the flames. Mrs. Gunn wald was so badly burued that recogni tion was lmpossib.e. She was dead when picked up. Gunnwald was taken to the hospital, but thfre was no hope for his recovery and he died in a short time after being brought there. A police officer rescuetl Mrs. Meyer, the mother ot Mrs. Gunnwald. from the burning building. The old lady is pros trated by the shock. GROCER PRICE'S PAST. rolieo Believe He Hns Committed Other Offences Than Arson. Clarence Price, who was arrested in tho Fourth precinct Saturday night on suspicion ot having set fire to the build ing occupied by bun as a grocery store on the night of the Fourth of July, is still at tho Fourth precinct station-house, and will be given a hearing in the police court to-day. It is tLought by the police that Price has been mixed up in several other af fairs of a questionable nature, and yester day Mr. John A. Sis, a grocer on Four-and-a-half street, southwest, notified the Fourth precinct that some time ago he gave several hundred uoilars worth of bills to a man who claimed to be a bonded collector and said his name was Price. Some of the bills were collected and the money was never turned in. He thinks it is the same man, and will try to identify him to-day. HIS UEAD BLOW.V OFF.

Theodora Wagon tynser, aged seventy years, was found dead in his house this afternoon near Merchant villo with a portion ot his head blown off. An old musket was lying at his feet. Tho police authorities are inclined to believe the old man was murdered, owing to tho absence of powder marks on hisrface, which would have undoubtedly been the caso had he committed suicide. Wagonh,,iser, until two weeks ago, lived with a woman named Carolina Luidweler, but they quarreled and separated. TLe polico are looking for the woman. SHE FIRED AT SFARRO"WS.

The strike at the Sharon Iron Works, which has been in progress for about two weeks, for an ad vance of. wages , was complicated to-day by the arrival ot a carload of negroes, who will be put to work in the mills. Tho strikers have done their best to in duce the colored men to leave, but the com pany's representatives say the old men mj'st return to work without an advance or the negroes will be put to work.
