F.uuhost, W. Va., July 10.?A heavy ;
rainfall prevailed throughout a largo aR
ficojK} of country in Central West Virginia
from Sumhty evening until late w]
Monday night, which caused a freshet ro
in both the Valley and West Fork jv
branches of the Mouongahela river, such \\
as was never before known. The Mon- tei
ongaiiela at this point was fully two feet, Be
some ?ay three feet, higher than it wan
| in IS.VJ, when it was higher than at any va
other time within the memory of the
I oldest inhabitant. The destruction to aj,
f property is beyond present computation, &
bat enough is known to warrant the fit
declaration that nearly every house and J|
most ?)f the fencing on nil low lauds ny
In'tween this point and Clarkshurgon tho njj
West Fork, and as far, at least, as Graf- ti<
ton on the Valley river, have been swept
away. From early dawn until about 4
p. iii. tin* Monongahela continued to rise,
and during that time the channel was s?
constantly filled with houses, fencing,
steam timber, saw logs, shocks of wheat, ^
parte ui bridges and othor debris, denoting
the havoc of the rushing waters. io
Some ten or twelve houses were
SWEPT FHOM THE TOWN
of Worthington, one n large now frame
that had just been completed. It is re- ?l
ported also that the public bridge that ir<
spans the river at that point on the ^
Fairmont and Shinnston turnpike was
taken out, together with a flouring mill. *a
The tiitfton mines, just above Fair- w
niont, were flooded, while tho company's
track was submerged and its locomotivo
was for a time half under water. The u,
large county bridge near Gaston and the
exnoti.m'vn rnilrnint Itriikm nrnctod n ulinrf.
time mnee by Mr. Henry Y. Attrill for
the New England, Fairmont and West- U(
iTii Coal Company, were both destroyed. nI
One-luilf the houses in Johnstown, one JJJ
mile above this place, and many in
Itivesvillc, four miles below, were sub- ca
merged.
The Jackson mill, one of ^
faiumont's oldest landmarks, 0j
that withstood the Hood of '52 was cnrried
out about 11 o'clock to-day and
lloateil down to the Kaiimont, Morgan- T<
town ik Pittsburgh railroad bridge, one
mile below, where it Went to pieces,
with almut one thousand bushels of
wheat in its upper stories.
The Harnesvillo Manufacturing Companv's
new buildings and costly ma- jj,
chinery were badly damaged by the over- in
How from UuHalo creek. Joseph M. d"
Fleming's saw mill at Johntown suffered JjJ
great damage from overflow; also six or w
seven flouring mills, located at different jr
joints, were washed away. The factory g
and store lmu.se of the Palatine queensware
pottery were j,
ENTIRELY UNDER water, hi
and, of course, suffered heavily. el
The West Fairmont shaft mines wore ^
flooded by back water from the river, .)(
notwithstanding every exertion to close |j
the opening. These mines have heavy w
contracts and 100 men are thrown out of
employment till the mines can be freed
from water. The loss in this section will
probably reach $300,000, possibly $400,<Hn),
ami will fall largely where it ean be 1
least easily borne. * ,

I'l.AKKsm uo, W. Va., July 10.?The d
most devastating tlood in the history of a
this comity occurred to-day. The thickly e
settled part of Clarksburg was entirely j
cut otr from railroad and telegraphic t
communication for twenty-four hours, ?
the greatest excitement prevailing. Be- 1
*i<lo twenty houses having been carried ,
away bv the maddened waters, an ines- e
tiiuable amount of property has been t
uuii-u. auoui o o ciock ounuay even- j
ing it began to rain and continued to do t
?o almost incessantly until this morning j
at 1 o'clock, but the streams being com- I
paratively low, no one thought of the
?reek and river rising so rapidly, and
those living on the low lands had made I
no preparations for moving out.
At the midnight hour
tii* alarm was oivew
l>y the lumbermen who were engaged in
catching logs, but the rise was so rapid
tio goods could be moved, and those who
were awakened barely escaped with
their lives. It was a night of terror,
never to l>e forgotten. The water
reached its highest stage at 1 o'clock today,
and by those who remember the
tlood of '52, it is conceded that it en*
rely surpasses it. The loss to the
>wn and county cannot even be esti- ,
iated.
Every bridge, both iron and wood,
as swept away entirely. No mails (
ave arrived since yesterday. R. T.
owndes, C. M. and J. B. Hart, J. F.
sborne, B. F. and N. A. Shuttleworth, 1

HUNDKKDH OF POOR PEOPLE 1
re entirely without homes. R. T. I
owndes, who operates a saw-mill, ?
oolen mills and grist mills, besides J
eing an extensive dealer in lumber, <
iti mutes his loss at about $05,000. No ,
ims of life is re)>orted as yet, although
>me itersons state that they saw u boy .
a a lot of drift wood, which was float- 1
ig down stream at the rate of fourteen i
tiles an hour, and that all attempts to <
tve him were futile. Over live thous- .
id logs were lost on account of the 1
igh stage and rapid moving of the 1
ater. Those homes that escaped the c
I'vastating effect of the flood were (
irown open to the unfortunate ones r
id every effort is being made to alle- t
ate the suffering. i

Guafton, W. Va., July 10.?The rise 1
1 the Valley river last night and this J

lys was unprecedented, and the result *

At about three o'clock this morning ?
1 e Valley river boom, in which thous- a
ids of logs had lodged, gave way, car- s
ing destruction in its path. The plan- t
g mill of Morgan & Magill was swept J
vay, as was the Fetterman bridge. E
lout two miles below this town. At 7 5
clock the river had risen fully twenty ?J
lit, and was twenty-nine feet in the
tannel. It was momentarily feared 0
at the railroad bridge at this point a

joils continue and destruction to pro- i
?rty all along the Little Kanawha and 1
hio rivers is greater than in 1884, when
iu great Hood came. The farms are t
joded and hundreds of acres of growig

wift aud the greatest difficulty is be- I
ng experienced by the river men in

of a Hood here, however, as
he Allegheny river is not contributing
inything to prevent a rise. It is prol>jbfe
that the highest point will be

A the Grievance Committee of the

Murphy, occupying the same
position in the Firemen's Brotherhood,
were arrested at the rooms in the National
Hotel this morning. The prisonjrs
were taken completely by surprise.
Both men were taken to the police headquarters
and locked up. The two chiefs 1
vere charged with conspiracy. The
nuch talked of circular in which Hoge
s alleged to have requested Brotherhood ,
nen to hire themselves secretly to the
'Q" road and then disable the engines

igainst Hoge. Chairman Murphy is
'barged with being an accomplice. Gen- <
tral Manager Stone swore out the warants
last night and they were given to i
he officers to be served early this inorn- t
njj. Attorney Collier, of the "Q" road, <
aul this morning that the prisoners J
vouJd bo arraignea ueioro a justice anu <
i continuance taken, as the company i
vos not yet ready to push the case. He J
isserted, however, that the evidence in ]
josscssion of the company was coniusive.
Hoge and Murphy were taken before t
Justice K. H. White, but asked fur a
hange of venu. Upon the prisoners
>eing brought to Justice Lyon, the rail- i
oad attorneys demanded a continuance. t
'he Justice was about to lix bail at
-1,000 apiece, when the company's lawers
protested, and after some parley the a
mount was increased until Saturday.

ohn 11. McGillivary. " *
A MIDNIGHT CONSULTATION J1
f the officers of the company led to the
rrests. Two or three detectives, Man- g
ger Stone, l-reignc Agent ram aiorwu,
nil Attorney Collier were working all J
ight on evidence against the alleged
onspirators, and it was not until an t
arly hour this morning that they do- I
ided to arrest Hoge and Murphy. Then 1
be little party broke up, the warrants t
rere procured and the officials retired i:
>r a Jew hours of rest. Then they arose a
3 watch the result of their work. C
"Well, we've landed our men," said t
'aul Morton to a reporter soon after the v
nnouucement of the arrests were made, e
" What do these arrests signify ?" o
"They mean that Mr. Iloge and Mr. ii
lurphy have been arrested for criminal
onspiracy in connection with that cirular.
and I think we can prove that the
ircular came from them."
No more arrests will be made in this
ity, it is said, but it is hinted thatsevral
strikers in other places will be I
ehiud the bare before long. {,

"What is wanted?" ho asked.
"Mr. Hoge," was the reply.
"That's my name."
"Then I have a warrant for your nrest,"
said the oilicer.
"All right, I'll Ik) with you in a moaent."
Hoge expressed no surprise but hastiy
dressed himself and joined the ofQcer
a the hull. In the meantime the other
Uicer had gone to room 27, which he
;new was occupied by Murphy, who ,
ame to the door in response to his rap.
ilurpliy was very drowsy and had eviientlv
had little sleep.
"Whose room is this?" asked the
illiccr.
"Charles Thomas'," was the reply.
"I thought Murphy ocotrpied it.
"Well, bo he does; that's my name,
>ut unless your business is of great irnlortance
I am too tired to talk now."
"But it is of importance; I have a
varran t for you r arrest."
Murphy was awake now. His face
;ruw pale" as the night robe he wore, lie
itaggered back, grasping the door frame
or support.
"A warrant," he gasped, "what for,
or God's sake?"
"Itcliargesvou with conspiracy against
he Chicago, Burlington&Quincy road."
Lud the warrant was road to him. Mur>by
dressed himself slowly. He was?

leisurely as did Hogc. A light alpaca 1
oat and vest aud a straw hnt completed

tut iuto the chill morning air. Hoge ,
(poke to him cheerfully, but Murphy 1
vas not in a mood to respond and little
vas said uutil the two were placed in j
:ells behind prison bare. Frank Collier, \
he tttt'orney lortue umcago, isurungion
k Quincy road, was there before David,
ind so was Inspector Bon field and the
)Uicers who made the arrest. A moment
ater Alexander Sullivan entered.
"I actually don't know a thing about
t," said he.
"I am counsel in civil cases for the
Brotherhood and have been called in by
oge's friends."
"Will the Brotherhood take up their
lefenie?"
"I can't say as to that. My presence
tiere does not signify that it will. I
really have not had an opportunity to
uilk to my clients and can say nothing
ibout the case yet."
TUB RAILROAD'S ATTORNEY.
"This case," said Mr. Collier, "grows
Dut of the circular sent out to the
Brotherhood lodges asking that Brotherhood
men bo sent to take places on the
'Q,' and suggesting that they bring a
good supply of sal soda and emery with
them. The sending of these circulars is
deemed prima facie evidence of a share
iu a concerted conspiracy and we have a
sure thing against too prisoners,"
"Then they are not to be arraigned
for the dynamite alleged! to have been
found in Hoge's room at the Grand
Pacific."
"Well, we will not at present charge
them with direct implication in that."
"And the sending oi the circular is
the only chaise against them ?"
"Is not that enough ? Now don't ask
me more than I can answer."
"Are you going to show that they h?u
the circulars printed?"
"We are going to show enough to
prove a clear case against them. A sure
case. If you want to know anything
more ask lionflcld. He has bad charge
oi the case all the time. You see, you
tellows don't know everything."
Inspector; Bonfleld was appealed to,
but he replied that lie knew nothing
about the case. "Mr. Stone swore out a
warrant and we served it. That's all I
know." '
"But you know something of the evidence
In the case. It is said on good au

the way through." .
The Inspector looked a trifle worried.
"Whoever told you that," ho said,
"must have been crazy."
Attorney David was running around A.
the station in an effort to find out where p0
the prisoners were. Attorney Sullivan . r
stood in quiet dignity, apparently oblivious
of all that was going on. Inspector
Bon Held was carrying on a miscel- foi
laneous conversation with a host of otfi- El
cere, and the two prisoners were in their
cells down Btalre. u.
The cases were on Justice II. White's {
docket, and at 11 o'clock the prisoners
were brought up stairs by officers and ttook
scats in the court room. Just then
Attorney Donohuv came in, and he and Hj1
Attorney David had a long on
.TALK WITH TIIK PRISONER*. d?

food naturedly when the reporter ap- no
iroached. " dw
"Yes, I was surprised," ho said, th<
'greatly surprised, but they had no bu

"Anything to say ?" to"No,

No sooner had the warrant been read 8un

ibout her and attempted to console her, ?tu

'It will break her heart."
The chief at ilrst declared that they
nust go, but filially consented that they an<

laid he would kill me. Friends came 1
Hit of the house and said he was flour- 8j1(

did not "have as much to say about the re|

When the officer inquired what led to in
the elopement, Moore said he had noth- by

" Mr. Hoar then took the floor and de
J livercd a long and carefully prepares
g speech on the treaty. Mr. Hoar said:
e I make 110 apology for entering earl]
l(; upon this discussion. I have seen witl
,f deep regret that the President of th<
ir United States, or some person upor
n whose advice he had acted, seems t<

? ENGLISHMEN CONSULTED?AMERICANS 10
KOUED.
n Before calling attention to the treaty'
d terms I wish to make one other observe
11 tion. This is, that the Administratioi
f seems to have consulted nobody. I can
' not learn that the progress of this negc
*} tiation any representative of the inter
> ests to he affected has been admitted t
j its confidence.
J* During this whole negotiation, as dur
J* ing that which preceded the llalifa:
" award and this which preceded th
Geneva award, the leading statesmen c
uanaoa were conauuiuy consilium u,
j the representatives of Great Britain
Arbitrators proposed by us were rejecte
in deference to Canada s objection. On
of the British commissioners is undei
stood to have repaired to Canada durin;
>y the discussion, which was intermitte
for that purpose. Yet neither my col
league nor myself, neither of the distin
, guished Senators from Maine, no reprt
sentati ve of a (lulling district in the othi'
re House, no member of this body, th
le constitutionnl adviser of the Presider
l(j and the constitutional depositary wit)
c> him of the treaty-making power, is ad
jj mitted or consulted in this importan
j8 matter until the concessions to Canad
,(j are all made and the President and Se<
c. retary come before thG public with tliei
,e declaration that wo have got all by thi
j treaty that we are justly and equitabl
entitled to demand.
ia.NORA.VCK OF THE ADMINISTRATION.
The pending negotiation has to d
with a good many separate questioni
n They relate to four principal subject* c
^ differenco: The extent of territory i:
8t which the United States possess right
01 of fishery, including shore rights; th
g. treatment due to our vessels on th
a- coasts and in the ports of the Britis
le North American dependencies; the clait
ie for indemnity for past grievances in th
at treatment of our fishermen; the abar
*s donment of our established protectiv
ar policy for the benefit of British fishe:
d, men.
re In regard to each of these, the Sccri
tary of State seems to have dealt wit
the subject, 1 will not say in total i)
noranee, but in total disregard of th
n" American position and the America
tio rights. He says, in his letter to gentl
tie men in Boston, that "the sole diflicu
question to which the treaty relates
tnat of the fishery rights of ono natio
'r in the jurisdictional waters of another.
This is the statement of the America
case from the British point of view. M
. Bayard's letter and the utterances of
u' few other supporters of the treaty a:
? the first and only statements of th
pJ: character ever heard on this side of tl
Atlantic south of the Canadian bordi
since the continent was settled. M
have always held,mid there is abundai

in CAU8K FOR WAR.
Mr. Hoar discussed at length tl
m. treaty and British insults to the Ame
can flag and continued:
Secretary Manning declares that1 tl
Dominion of Canada brutally exclud
y's American fishermen from Canadi;
ass ports," and says that ho "hopes the
le- never will be such passionate spite d
oil played in the offices of this Governme
or as has during last summer been exhib
of ed in the Dominion of Canada towa
ion well meaning American fishermen."
ted These are not sentimental grievana
Voyages broke up, vessels condemn
cencies of hospitality denied, refui
even to replace the food that had be
riven to their own perishing seamen;
Canadian sea-wolf would have had mo
gratitude to the man who had succor
!l) her young; the American ting haul
down from an American must-head bj
Canadian officer. Why, in the old da
here would have been matter for a hu
dred wars.
I It is not too much to say that, whi
"8 this administration shall exist, there w
neither be redress nor hope nor expc
tation of redress for any outrage coi
mitted by Great Britain upon an Amei
can anvwhere.
Mr. lloar then shows that 110 Amei
,n can vessels were seized by Canada la
year because of alleged violations
treaty rights. Continuing, he said:
This treaty is not the road to bono
to safety, or to peace. It is not the roi
I to the respect of Great Britain, or eve
1(1 of Canada. Where it removes one caui
of discord it will produce ten. We cj
never have commercial reciprocity ti
reciprocity of justice and courtesy a
first established.
The Am??rimnn ar? not a minrrclson
i people. When we remember wlioi
11 children we are, we have always show
a surprising readiness to yield our ju
rights for the sake of peace. We ha\
little left to us even of that rash huin<
which our mother gave us. But we ca
0 never live iu peace with Canada if vi
allow her to think that the methods sli
has taken for the last three years are th
ways to gain concessions from us. W
can never live in peaco with England i
we permit her, without prompt and ir
slant protest, to try once more tho ei
0 periments on our forbearance which pr<
ceded tho Revolution, which precede
the war of 1812, which accompanied th
war of tho rebellion.
THEN AXI) NOW.
At the close of the war of 1812, Johi
Quincy Adams, and Gallatin, and Claj
and the elder Bayard met tho represen
tativcs of a power that had one-half o
the world for her allies and the othe
e half at her feet. England had just ovei
thrown Napoleon on land, and swep
11 the natives of Europe from the face o
' the sea. Yet we came from the cont?
- of war, and of diplomacy, with ever
3 right and liberty unimpaired; our hono
without a stain, with added glory to ou
flag, and the pretension for which Eug
-1 lnnd hud irono to war with ua never t<
1 be heard of again.
We had another war within our owi
recent memory. Our foes were of ou:
f own household. Our ancient enemi
J and our ancient ally sat at their gates
b gazing across the Atlantic, to see if the]
j could discover any pretext for thro win;
their weight into the scale of rebellion
a England gave us provocation enough
- But you remember the sublime i>atienc<
I with which Abraham Lincoln waited un

8 giving notice that he should insist upon

eminent tiien refused his proffer and
[j will undoubtedly again refuse to accept
it when the resolution shall come up

1 This refusal, in order to be understood,
q must be compared with the effect of such
action in the Congress of the United

r has been assailed by newspaper clmrgus
, has ever been refused a personal investig
gatiou where the offenued member prej
fere such a request. It is no answer to
L. say that Mr. Parnoll has a remedy in the
. English courts. The Times has already
. spent from 15,000 to 20,000 pounds in
' making the case. It would take at least
0 a similar amount, and much time, to
1 contest a case in the courts where, in the
.. present condition of the English courts,
0 the Nationalists claim, no satisfaction
r could bu secured.
If the Government thought it had n
,1 case against Parnoll that would satisfy
e the honorable members, it would have
r seized upon the opportunity to have a
