The Village of Loveland Swept Away. Cleopatra's Bones for Exhibition at the World's Fair. Sad Drowning of Two Young Ladies in Colorado—Vandalism at Har vard College. Coßtfdtt Bluffs, lowa, June 2.—A special to the Nonpareil from the Mis souri valley of lowa, tells of the almost total destruction of the village of Love land, yesterday, by a cyclone burst or waterspout. Loveland is located in a gully in the Boyer valley. A terrific storm passed over the valley, and near the upper end a cloudburst occurred, the water sweeping down through the fated village, leaving hardly a house intact, and destroying several lives. Among the bodies identified so far are those of Mrs. Sayles and son. One family passed all night in a tree top, and were rescued this morning. Several persons are miss ing, and their bodies have not yet been found ; tliey are supposed to have been carried down the valley by the water. Advices received late tonight from the scene of tbe Loveland disaster, indicate that the first reports over-estimated its magnitude. Mrs. Sayles is the only per son known to have been lost, so far. The village is a small one, and the pecuni ary damage, therefore, is not very large. Tbe river has subsided to its usual chan nel, but all day's search failed to reveal any more bodies. A WORLD'S FAIR FAKE. An Enterprising Egyptian Digs Vp the Bonn of Cleopatra. CHICAGO, June 2.—Alexander Taglia ferro, of Alexandria, Egypt, writes the directors of the world's fair, that he is in a position to furnish them an interesting exhibit.

When the sar cophagus was opened, the contents fell in ashes, with the exception of the skel eton, which is still preserved. Taglia ferro says he is prompted to negotiate with the exposition authorities from notices which he has seen in the news papers announcing that tbe kbedive of Egypt had been asked by the directors of the exposition for the mummy of Barneses. His price is $(>O,OOO at Alex andria.

NOT A CONTRADICTION. It Was a Mare's Nest That an lowa .Lawyer Discovered. Washington, June 2. —Tbe report ex tensively circulated that a lawyer had unearthed a decision made by the United States supreme court a few years ago, in which the court took exactly op posite ground to that held in the "orig inal package" decision, turns out to be incorrect. There is a very obvious dis tinction between these two cases. The case decided several years ago arose out of the seizure by a state officer of a cargo of coal brought into Louisiana by a ship ; but before it was taxed, part of it had been sold, so it was no longer an original package. Moreover, it is erroneous tbat the supreme court appears to have over looked its decision in this case. The Louisiana case was brought to tlie atten tion of the court in the argument of counsel, who showed wherein they dif fered. Vandalism at Harvard.

TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 3, 1890. THE HARDIE MURDER General Grierson's Theory Exploded. Indians Proved to Have Been the Murderers. Their Trail Followed to tlie Mexi can Line. Signs That Seem to Indicate That They Were Indians From San Carlos Reservation. Associated Press Dispatches. I San Francisco, June 2.—The Chroni cle's Tombstone, Arizona, special says : The assertion of General Grierson that no Indians were out, and that Hardie had not been killed by Apaches, was disposed of today by the arrival of Lieutenant Fitch from the Mexican line. Fitch said: "I was ordered to Rucker canon after Hardies murder, and arrived there to find that Lieuten ant McGrath, of Bowie, had been there before, and was on the trail of the Apaches. I followed him, and camped the same night with him, near Lei lie's ranch. Next day we came up to a dead mare and colt. The latter had been skinned and all the flesh packed off. Both animals had been stabbed to death, no doubt to save ammunition. Nine animals had been stolen. We followed the trail to within four miles of the line, where a heavy sand storm covered it. Remained there till yesterday morning, when orders came from Bowie by helio graph signals for Lieutenant McGrath and myself to return to our posts. There is no question about the murderers of Hardie being Indians. The trail indi cated that there were at least five of them. They have gone into Mexico. I do not know why we were ordered back to our quarters." A special to the Chronicle from Pha; nix, Arizona, says: A report received here today from Tombstone says that Friday night between 12- and 1 o'clock fires were seen in the Whetstone mountains, which, from tbe way they were handled, were undoubtedly Indian signal fires, prob ably to communicate with another band in the Chiricahuas. Tbe fires were on the highest peak of the mountains, and were allowed to blaze for a short time, when they were suddenly extinguished. It is evident that this is a fresh band, direct from the reservation, who also will make their way into Sonora on the, other side of the Huachucas, and when* across the line, join those already there. James Price arrived in Tucson last evening from the eastern part of Cochise county. On the Friday preceding the killing of Hardie, he struck the trail of the band that did the killing, and the trail, instead of leading to ward the reservation, was lead ing away from it, and toward Sonora, snowing that the murderers were not the band that bad been raiding along the border, but a fresh lot direct from the reservation. After killing Hardie. they stole nine head of horses from Frank Leslie, an old rancher. Will iamßeynold,who had charge of the ranch, missing, the horses, started in search of them, and found an Indian trail, which be followed some distance, com ing to a place where they killed a colt and roasted it. At this place was a small fire, and judging from it and the size of the trail, it is presumed that there were at least six Indians in the party. They abandoned at the ranch an Indian pony broken down, which is another evidence that they were direct from the reserva tion. It is also reported that Indian bucks have been seen in the middle oi a pass of the Dragoon mountains. It is further reported that the Indians have fathomed the mystery of heliog raphy, and wit h looking glasses are using the stations for their ow.x purpose, and to mislead the troops, thus further com plicating matters. It is possible, how ever, that it is American bandits who have mastered the heliograph system, and are using the knowledge for their own purpose. WITHOUT HIS PRISONER. An Officer's Excuse For Lotting a Crimi nal Escape. San Francisco, June 2. —A dispatch from Portland a few weeks ago stated that Fritz Schwartz, alias F. Stolnay, had been arrested in that city by Gov ernment Detective William Baumgart ner. It was charged tbat he deserted from the United States army in San Francisco two years ago, and went to San Diego. A few months later he re turned to San Francisco and married Miss Emily Jacobowitz, lived with his wife a short time and with her money opened wine rooms on Mission street. Last December he sold out and went to Portland, leaving a number of creditors here. Detective Baumgartner has re turned from Portland, but did not bring his prisoner with him. It seems that the detective, besides drawing pay from the government, has been liberally paid by the wife. On reaching here without his prisoner, the detective told the lady that after he had effected his capture, friends of his prisoner bound and gagged himself and set his prisoner, Schwartz or Stolnay, at liberty.

Engineer Dunn Held Responsible and Charged with Manslaughter—The Rail road Company Censured. San Francisco, June 2.—The coroner's inquest in the matter of the railroad catastrophe in Oakland on Memorial day, began this afternoon. Charles O'Brien, fireman of the wrecked train, was the first witness. He testified that he had never seen Engineer Dunn in liquor. The drawbridge through which the train went at the time of the acci dent could be seen from witness's side of the engine at the shipyard, and he felt sure it was closed when the train left there. The engineer was on the train when witness jumped, which was not until the engine went down. He had been running with tlie train only'occa sionally, and could not say at what dis tance the danger signal could be discov ered. The engine had hardly any speed on when they went through the draw, and if they could have run ten yards further the train would have been stopped. Bridge-tender Dunlap testified that the train was not in view when he opened the draw, though it could have been seen at tbe mole. He thought it was coming at a high rate of speed about 150 yards distant. He had been on the bridge about fifteen months, and thought the engineer could see the signal about 300 feet away. He was closing the draw when the accident occurred. The signal flag (which was produced in evidence) was placed about 2«0 feet from the edge of the draw. Tbe engine approached the draw at the rate of five or seven miles an hour. Tbe bridge was within sixteen feet of being closed. Conductor L. A. Davis testified that he knew nothing about the draw being open, until the engine and car went into the water. He did not think the train was running more than two miles an hour at the time. The Verdict. The jury rendered a verdict late to night, and found that the victims of the accident came to their death by drown ing, caused by criminal negligence on the part of Engineer Dunn. The ver dict further recites: "We find Engineer Dunn guilty of man slaughter. We also find that the railway company does not take sufficient precaution to signal trains when approaching the drawbridge." Funeral* of the Victim*. Services in memory of the victims of the Oakland disaster were held in this city today. The solemn high requiem mass was celebrated for the repose of the soul of Mrs. Mary B. O'Connor. Similar services were held at St. John's church in memory of the Kearnes sisters, and at St. Dominick's church in memory of the late assistant chief wharfinger, Martin Kelly..

He was sure, he declared, that the officers in both the English and French services could be depended upon to preserve a conciliatory attitude pend ing tne arrangement of the Newfound land fisheries trouble.

New York, June 2.—The Courier dee Elals Unis has from Havana an inter view with Murderer Eyraud. He said in part: "One morning in speaking with Gabrielle, I told her I intended going to Germany or some other country to work. Gabrielle begged me to waite a while, on the assurance that she had some thing in view which she intended to un dertake. She made an appointment for me for 6 o'clock in the evening, and I was at the rendezvous promptly. She handed me a key leading to a secret door to her house, telling me to return at 8 o'clock." "But she has declared that you killed Gouffe," interposed the reporter. "I never killed him," replied Eyraud. "When I left the house at 8 o'clock I heard a great deal of noise and laughter. Bottles of champagne were being opened. Pretty soon Gabrielle came to look for me. She gave me some keys and sent me to find some papers belonging to Gouffe. I could not find them, and, hearing a noise, left Gouffe's house and returned to Gabrielle. I looked everywhere, I told her, but without success. I could not find the papers. Then Gabrielle, raising her arm in the air, said to me: 'Look.' I turned my eyes to where she pointed and saw Gouffe suspended by tbe neck, with his tongue hanging out of his mouth. "'Who strung him up there?' I asked. "'I will tell you later,' replied Gab rielle. 'In the meantime, help me to put him in a trunk.' "It is impossible to describe," con tinued Eyraud, "how difficult it is to place a dead body in a bag. We cut down the body of Gouffe and tried in vain to place him there. We then raised his body in the air, and when it was suspended it was much easier for us to put him in tbe bag. It was still a difficult operation to put the sack in the trunk. We lowered the body gradually until we got it in a horizontal position above the trunk. On the sides his legs and arms rested. I pushed him into the bottom by pressing on him until the body touched the bottom of the trunk, but his legs and head remained out side. Then Gabrielle proposed to cut the head off in order to close the trunk. I continued in my efforts, and using extra force succeeded'in push ing the head, inside. We locked the trunk, and Gabrielle told me she would take care of it. We placed it near his bed and I returned to his house to sleep." "And you did sleep?" asked the re porter." "Soundly," was Eyraud's reply. "I was very much tired by the work I had done. I then returned to Gabrielle's house, and we took tickets for a station near Lyons. We carried the trunk to a neighborhood where Gabrielle was acquainted, and left it there. We then took extra tickets for Marseilles. In the latter town we purloined 7,000 francs, of which 2,000 belonged to an Englishman who admired Gabrielle. Then we returned to Paris. In regard to Gouffe there was some prospect of getting 5,000 francs out of him, but there M as the hitch." "And what about this accomplice to whom Gabrielle refers in Paris?" asked the reporter. "About that I cannot talk at present. I will tell the prsoecutor on my arrival in France." MB. BLAINE'S BECOMMENDATIONS Suggestions to Congress Growing out of the Pan-American Congress.
