It Is probably safe to assume the for mer figures as Is-ing more nearly correct than the latter. The damage to property will amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Miles of railroad track nre washed out and Kient gulches have been created. The devastated section covers an area of alsnit Jit miles west of Rlue- held. It is a very narr)r valley, not much wider than-a hroud strts-t in some places. I onl mines nre scattered all nlong the rond.

There is a cris'k which runs through the town, over which most of the houses art- built on piles nnd rock work. This creek runs in a xigxng way through the narrow village and has a gradual full. The mountains on either side liHitu up for hundreds of feet nnd the town Is so narrow in places that one is obliged to go into the middle of it to see the sky. Persons familiar with t lit- situation of the town said it would Is- a deathtrap if the HimmI was as heavy ns reported. Yet hey reason that occuring In the daytime there was no reason why ninny people should have lsen taught in the onrush of the lunihicncd waters. All reports agree that between J and ItlNI houses were swept nway in the Elkhorn valley, but of course not nil tin occupants were ih-owucil. The railroad people are rushing inntcr- inl and supplies to the Elkhorn. One j hundred and fifty lalKirors came la over the Roanoke and Southern railway nn an extra train and went west, and nearly nil the work trains on the rond have been scut to the Elkhorn vicinity.

Falhsr Frustrated by tirtef Gloom Aineug Yale students. NEW HAVEN, June 21.-Ailclliort S. Hay, sou of Secretary Hay, and former consul to Pretoria, was found dead on the sidewalk outside the New Haven House at 2 ;M1 a. in. yesterday. Hay retired to his risnu at 1 o'clock after spending the evening with friends ill iippari ut excellent spirits. At 2:;!(l n passerby noticed the Isnly of a prostrate mnii laying on tlie sidewnlk on the ('Impel street side of tlie hotel. The night clerk of tlie hotel was iluiu" dintely simnuoiicil and recognixed the young man as Adellicrt S. Hay. There was considerable excitement about the hotel ami n large body of students and graduates, who are here for the com mencement exercises, soon gathered. A number of Hay's former clnssmiites nt Yale positively identified the young man. It is believed that Hay became ill ami went to the window for air, wns over come by a fit of dizziness and fell to the ground below. l'r. IV.irtlett, the medical examiner, stated that the young mull undoubtedly AOKUlKliT 8. HAY. enme to his death by nil accident. Tlie clothes in the bed had been turned, show ing his intention to go to bed. His clothes had been folded. On the ledge of the window was found a partly burned cigarette. This discovery leads to the belief that Hay had lighted n cigarette Is-forc retiring ami went to the window to smoke it. Whether he was seined with a lit of di'.iiicss or fell asleep on the window ledge cannot 1m- determined. Hon. .loh'i liny, secretary of state, ar rived in New Haven from Washington yesterday afterniMui iu response to the dispatch auiiouiicing tlie sudden dentil of his sou, Adellicrt S. liny. Mr. Hay was unaccompanied and gave signs of grc.it grief. He entered a carriage ami was driven immediately to the residence of Seth Mosely, .'Hi Wall street. Worn out with. the long trip from the national cap ital and once within tlie walls of die hotiH- that sheltered the remains of his dead sou, the secretary collapsed. His prostration was so complete thnt medicnl uid was deemed necessary ami Ilr. Sam uel l. Cilhcrt was summoned. Adellicrt S. Hay wns the eldest son of the secretary of state and wns bora while the latter mis living in Cleveland, about 2."i years ago. His second name is Stone, which he ls-urs in memory of the Inte Ainnsa Stone, his maternal grumlsire. He was educated iu the pri vate schools of Cleveland nnd prepared nt St. Pauls academy in Concord, N. II., for Yale. At the university he wns a popular scholar. He was appointed consul to Pretoria early iu l!Kl to suc ceed Charles MeCruin of Ohio. He arrived nt his post of duty March , 111, nnd after serving during the critical period of hostilities in South Africa he resigned his position and re turned to this couni ry reaching here About the beginning of March. No suc cessor has yet been appointed and the cousuhite is in charge of Einiln 11. Van Ameriugen. tlie vice consul. Since his resignation, Mr. Hay had entered into no regular employment, though he hud devoted himself in part to nssisfing in the conduct nf his father's personal business. However, there had just come to him one of those goidcti op portunities that he had seized upon gratefully and was about to apply him self to it when his untoward end came. It hnd been the proudest n-collcction of John Hay's life that he had served Abra ham Lincoln as his assistant private sec retary. So it was to be tlie lot of Adel licrt Hay to serve William MeKinley in a like capacity. He had been offered nud had accepted the position of assistant Secretary to tlie president, a iduee nn.r held by Major Pruilen. The latter, after many years set-vice nt the White House has been made n paymaster iu the I'nited States army. He was under or ders to report to the paymaster general for reivice July 1 next when .Mr. ll.iy was to have siicci-eded him. Distressing- Conditions In t.osin. MANILA. June 2."

June 22-Hrudstreefs review of trade says: The situation is one of sustained strength ill some Hues and of further im provement in others. The crop situation of course remains tin- main subjis-t of in teicst. and tiiis on the whole is a good one, although tm, much rain in the South Atlantic states and tisj little iu Texas, with the lack nf warm weather for corn in the Northwest, have constituted ex ceptions to otherwise favorable advices. Stock speculation, though ipiiet, shows few symptoms of weakness despite the fuel that large dividend requirements on July 1 have tended to burden money rates. Cotton good-, notably print cloths, blenched gisals and a iiumlH-r of kindred products, have been advanced this week and nn increase in the price of the raw material is as much due to the better trade advices nt home and abroad as to the crop damage reports from the South. Hides and leather, long threatening nil advance, have ut Inst siiccis-ded In this respect, and in addition corn and outs among the cereals, lard among the hot, products, cheese umong dairy products and coffee ami tin are all higher on the week, the only important reduction being in win at, due mainly to liipiidntioii of the July option us much as to continued good erop advices. European advices favor the idea that the continent of Eu rope will be a heavy buyer the coining ci real j enr. Iron and steel loses nothing in strength ns the turn of . the year approaches. Uiiildcrs' hardware is iu enormous de mand the country over and wire and nails nre specially scarce. Cotton goods agents report nn active Inquiry for nearly all classes of cotton goods, but stocks are small and this lim its business. Raw cotton is 'ic highei and .Inly option is again reported cor nered. Crop advices on tlie whole have favored the hulls. Woolen goods tru lc advices are quite do erf ill.
