j FLOODS IN NEW JERSEY. !
Many Cities and Villages Damaged by RagingWaters. Seven Dams Burst and Sweep Away Houses and Bridges. The flood gates were lifted during the late heavy rain in New Jersey, and, since the -TnVinefnwn riicncfor w*s frwh in the minds of all, it would be hard to gauge the amount of terror that existed in some parts of that State for a few hours. The streams were already running full, and a succession of deluging showers in the afternoon and tev.ening caused them to overflow. The rainfedl was especially heavy on the Orange Mountains, and the result was that cities like Newark, Plainfleld and Elizabeth on the low land which received the mountain's streams suffered from floods. Bridges, dams and houses were washed away, trains stalled, and other damage done. The greatest flood Plainfleld, N. J., has ever known followed this heavy downpour of rain, and wash-outs and broken dams were the result. At 4 o'dock Codington's dam, on Stony Brook, cave way, and the large body or water thus freed carried away Codington's icehouse and threatened the Green Valley Mills with destruction. The damage along the course of this stream was heavy, for many barns and other buildings were washed away. At 4:30 o'clock the great dam at Feltville gave way, and the rush of the water down the valley proved too much for the little Green Brook, so that the torrent divided and part of it made its way to Cedar Brook. This brook flows through the choicest resident portion of Plainfleld, and the elegant houses there were badly damaged. An area in the town covering three square miles was entirely submerged. At 5:40 Tier's dam in Green Brook gave way, precipitating a great body of water through the center of the town. This brook divides the two counties of Somerset and Union, and where it runs through the town is built entirely over. When the water, in a great torrent, rushed down the stream and found its way blocked by buildings it turned Into the street. Somerset street became a raging flood, and where the brook was bridged the street was washed out badly. Many small wooden buildings were washed away and demolished. Several houses situated along the brook were flooded and the inhabitants compelled to move in short order. Frenche's mill and carriage factory were threatened with destruction. All the cellars and first floors of the stores in Somerset street were flooded and the damage to property was great. Host of the houses were occupied when the water came rushing down, and the greatest alarm prevailed among the occupants, who felt sure that the fate of the people of Johnstown was about to overtake them. The creams of the women could be heard above the noise of the torrents, and scenes such as have never been witnessed in that part of the country before were enacted. So far as known, at least seven dams were carried away. The last one to go was that neav Cadmus's mill below Plainfleld. The mill was reported to be wrecked. Bloomfleld, N. J., especially its business centre, is a wreck from the great flood. The second river dam at Fritz Mill, near the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad Depot, has given way and the land for two miles around was submerged. Stores and residences were flooded and thousands of dollars'worth of property destroyed. John P. Scherff, druggist, lost $3000 worth of drugs and other trticles; Robert M. Stiles, feed merchant, is also a heavy loser, while nearly all on the north side of Glenwood avenue have lost from $500 upward each. One or two lives were reported lost. The breaking of Fritz's Dam on Parrow Brook, near Orange, flooded and entirely destroyed Eppley's Park, which was recently laid out at a cost of $40,000. The damage in Essex County will amount to over $100,000. Reports from Morris County intimated that even greater damage lias been done there. The worst effects of the storm were felt in the Orange Mountains, however, and in the towns and villages lying at their eastern base. All the ponds and brooks on the mountains contained moro water than usual at this time of the year be cause of the unprecedented rains or 41m past few weeks. This downpour overflowed them and atone time early in the evening disasters were feared in Milburn, M"plewood1 Wjoining and South Orange, as the reservoir of the Orange "Water Works was unusually full, and it was feared it would burst. In this reservoir the waters of several mountain streams are dammed up for futuro use, as drink water in Orange, East Orange, West Orange and South Orange. lis is 300 feet above nigh water mark, and about two zxiil as and a half west of South Orange, the elevation of which is about 175 feet. <: In South Orange several buildings, includ, ing the postoflice, were carried away, and 350 barrels of flour were washed out ? of one storehouse. In Orange Valley the water was up to the second-story windows, and great damage has been dono to the stock in the numerous hat factories there. People were compelled to paddle around on planks and to swim in order to reach places of safety on high ground. Rutherford, N. J., was flooded badly and large portions of three of the prominent streets were washed out entirely. Several prominent stroets at Cailstadt, W.J. ,* were turned into mill-raoe3 and will be impassible until repaired, targe portions of the sidewalks were carried away. Passaic also came in lor her share of the cloudburst. At Hackensack many of the prominent thor?Tlghfares were entirely washed out and, made impassable. The Hackensack River had risen considerably and many of the cellars in the lower portion of the town were fi6oded. . to. ij. :ii? T>? V V Ulttgo Ul IWU^C W WU A (U A Itti WU badly. The finest streets in the town were totally ruined by the torrents. Cellars were flooded and great holes and ditches made in several private gardens. The storm, on the whole, was the heaviest that has visited those points for twelve years. Landslides and washouts occurred on nearly all tho main railroads in New Jersey and tie movement of trains was stopped. TWO MURDERERS HANGED, Dramatic Scenes On a Scaffold in the ( Louisville (Ky.)

C ' I j A WORLD'S FAIR IN 1892. Four-hundredth Anniversary of the Discovery of America. . -. , Important Action Taken by the Citizens of New York City. Successful meetings of the Chamber of Commerce, the Mayor's committee and the Spanish-American Association took action In New York city to formulate plans for holding a World's Fair there in 1692 to celebrate the four-hundredth anniversary of the discovery of America. At 8:15 o'clock the gentlemen who had been Invited to confer with the Mayor began to assemble in the Governor's room, and by 3:S0 there was hardly standing room. Chairs to the number of 110 had been provided, but these were inadequate to accommodate all those present. It was a big gathering, and it was unanimously in favor of having the biggest fair the world has ever seen in 1893 in New York. All the banks wore represented by their Presidents and directors. Railroad Presidents were as abundant as at a meeting of the Trunk Line Association. Merob if f.lia full roll ULLCUlbO AiA/UUUW ^ row AMM - ^? of the Chamber of Commerce were present to answer to their names. There were workingmen representing as many trades and industries as a national convention of the Knights of Labor or the American Federation of Labor. There were representatives of all the industries, professions, businesses and trades of New York city. They were all there, the heads of firms, the men whose names are as well known in London and San Francisco as they are in New York. Billions of dollars of capital were present in the men who control the railroads, the steamboats, the real estate, the hotels, the manufactures and the trade of the city. The assemblage proved the unanimity and enthusiasm of all the citizens of New York about the World's Fair which is to be held in 1892. The Mayor, in opening the discussion on the subject of the proposed quadri-centennial in 1892, said: "I have invited you to this meeting in order that you, as representative citizens of this great metropolis, may consider the desirability of commemorating the discovery of this continent Dy holding an interactional exposition in this, the chief city of the WWern Hemisphere. This event which we intend to commemorate is the discovery of a new world. Its importance is not to be measured by a mere addition to the sum of geographical knowledge; its fruits are observable in the happiness and prosperity of a nation which has maintained free institutions while it has acquired boundless wealth, and in the general improvement which the success of one government has wrought in the condition of mankind throughout the world. "The city of New York is the capital of this new world, whose achievements are but a Tyromisa of a still more glorious future, and in this, the most powerful and populous of the cities of America, I think it eminently desirable that we celebrate the triumph of Columbus by a World's Fair, which will eclipse all former industrial expositions." Mayor Grant was then unanimously made Permanent Chairman and William M. Spear Secretary. Mr. Charles G-. Haven suggested tJiat the name of the committee bo the Committee for the International Exposition of 1893. The matter of the appointment of committees was immediately taken up. Controller Myers offered the following: Whereas, It is fitting that there should be a suitable recognition of the four-hundredth anniversary of the discovery of this continent, such anniversary occurlngin 1892; and Whereas, Public opinion indicates that an international exposition will most satisfy and meet the requirements of the occasion and afford a desirable opportunity for foreign countries to testify to good will in our national regard; and Whereas, In its location, through which it holds the key to commerce, through its many and varied industries, through its resources of capital, through its unlimited facilities for the reception and entertainment of visitor^ through Its liberality in me promotion ux all that constitutes national success, through its acknowledged supremacy as the metropolis of the Western "world, New York is indisputably the proper site whereupon such an international exposition should be held; therefore, be it T Resolved, That it is the sense of this meeting that an international exposition shall be held in the city of New York in the year 1892 and that all present do pledge themselves to devote their best energies to the promotion of the success of such exposition; and Resolved, That a general committee of twenty be appointed by the Mayor, whose duty shall be to formulate detailed plans for organization of such an exposition and report at a public meeting to be called by the chairman when the committee shall be ready to report. Charles S. Smith offered the following substitute for the closing resolution: Resolved, That the chairman appoint the following committees, namely,one on finance, one on legislation, one on permanent organization ana one on site and buildings, each to consist of twenty-five members; and that the chairman be allowed such reasonable time as he deems proper to select and name such committees. Mr. Smith's motion for the appointment of the four committees was earned unanimously. The Mayor and Secretary Speai were made ex-ofncio members of the foui I committees, and the meeting adjourned subject to the call of the Chair. The New York Chamber of Commerce, at its meeting the same afternoon, appointed a j | committee of sixty membsrst o co-operate < with the National, State and city authorities . in regard to taking measures for the holding of a World's Fair in 1892.

BOULANGER'S FALL. France's Whilom Idol Meets a Crushing Defeat at the Foils. Returns from the elections in France for Councils-General had been received from L195 cantons on the day after the election, rhe Republicans have been successful in 748, ;he Conservatives in 419 and the Boulangists in 12. There will have to be second ballots in 149 cantons. The defeat of Boulanger was more crushing and complete than even the most sanguine followers of the Government had anticipated. The most rabid adherents of the General admit that he has ceased to be a power in French politics. They are endeavoring to discover the muse for the revulsion of public feeling. It is agreed on all sides that had Boulanger stood his ground and submitted bo trial the result would have been Ear different. There is no doubt that the flight of Boulanger was looked upon by the masses as little snort of cowardice, especially so in the case of one whose whole political capital consisted of his supposed oravery and disregard for personal langer.

The Most Terrific Storm that Ever Occurred There. Nearly a Score of Lives Lost and . Much Property Destroyed, One of the fiercest storms of recent years . burst over Chicago, 111., at 6 o'clock in the ; evening. The day had been sultry, with scarcely any wind. When the sun went ' down liie sky became overcast with greenish clouds, and darkness came on with incredible speed. Shortly after 0 o'clock rain be- j gan falling in torrents. Great streams of water pourred into the basements, driving ' hundreds of people into the streets and ruin- < lng an immenso amount of property stored in the down town stores. The electrical display was appalling. Scores of objects < were struck by lightning, and the roar of the thunder was deafening. Seven alarms of fire were rung within fifteen minutes. The water poured into the Lasalle street tunnel in such volume that passengers on the i cable cars were compelled to stand upon the i Beats. In the southwestern portion of the i city it is estimated that 1000 persons were \ driven from their homes. The Wisconsin Central tracks wore submerged, the water being so deep on the tracks that it entered the nxa boxes of the locomotives. The signal service officer said that a suo* i cession of thunder storms had swept over the M4rrr TVjatT noma frnm f.ViA "WVxrfc nnH Pflrh was mora severe than its predecessor. At 9 o'clock the water was falling in blinding sheets, with an almost continual roar of thunder. Some of the big down-town gas mains were flooded, and many merchants did business by the aid of candles and lamps. On the west side buildings were demolished, trees uprooted and entire sidewalks disappeared. Garfield Park was almost bereft of foliaeo. There the wind devastated a path of 400 feet in -width. Four new brick buildings at Rockwell and Sixteenth streets were demolished, and two men who had sought refuge in the doorways were crushed to death in the wreck. Two large brick buildings on Twenty-first street 'Xillansed, fell on adjoining cottages and ' killed seven people, besides injuring six others. Two families were almost obliterated in this disaster. James Lusk's cottage on Fifteenth street was blown to pieces, but the family miraculously escaped death. It rained for three hours, and the clImaT camo at 8:45, when all elements united and the very foundations of the city were shaken. Water poured into every basement and drove thousands of poor people into the street. In the police stations prisoners were compelled to ding to the bars to escape t drowning. The fins in the Palmer and the Grand Pacific were extinguished. Three feet of water flooded the Clifton House basement, j At the Chicago Opera House much of the ; "Blue Beard" scenery was ruined. Panics were narrowly averted in the theatres where the electric lights ceased to burn. Whole blocks beyond Western avenue were under water and the wooden sidewalks floated like rafts. Both the cable railways were completely paralyzed and in theLasalle street tunnel was a surging stream. Hinman street officers saved Mrs. Chepeks and six children in a basement by plunging into four feet of water. Officer Thomas Dorgan was dangerously injured by electrical discharge and Maggie Austin was rescued from a current on Lake street. Scores of instances were reported next day of casualties mainly by lightning, and a num ber of the victims cannot recover. John Hayes's house on Oakley avenue was demolished and one son fatally hurt, three persons being very seriously injured. Ernest Blocter was Trilled on Sixty-sixth street. Fires were innumerable, and #?0,000 damages resulted from that cause. , Off at Hammond three great packing houses succumbed to flames, caused by lightning. The police report fourteen persons dead and twenty-five injured, three of them fatally. In the Chicago Tribwie office the stereotypers worked in water to thoir waiste. So much sewage was returned from the river by the back current that the Health Commissioner advised the boiling of water before drinking. The pecuniary loss was estimated at $1,009,000. The records of the local signal service station show nothing approaching the deluge. Prom 6:80 to 9:80 4 12-100 inches of rain fell. Without going into figures it may be stated that the volume of water which fell inside ol the city limits would make a lake on which could be floated the greatest navy in the world. It was impossible to estimate the damage with any degree of accuracy. Hardly a house in the city escaped the fury of the storm. THE QTTEBNAL REVENUE.

HONEY BEE KEEPEBS. j A Litigation Taken Up by the National Association. Among the *iriifain down re*, cently at the adjourned General Term of fcheFonrth Judicial Department, New York;' was One of eztraordisaFy interest and im? portance to thekeepers of boneybees throughout the country. The litigation is entirely novel in its features, and arose under the following firyrrm etjinrvx. John M. Olmstead and Robert 8. Bich have fine residence* about fifty feet apart in the village of Hobart, Delaware County, N. Y. Olmstead is a banker, and Bicb is one oC the largest bee keepers and honey producers In the country, he haying over 150 gwanna . in his apiaries. About twenty of time swarms were kept in the recur of Rich'a -. bouse, and were therefore in clofa 1 proximity to . Booker Olmstead's dwel-j Sing. In July,. 1887, Banker Olmstoack served a notice upon Rich, alleging that the' tatter's bees were a nuisance and requiring; him to remove the twenty mves from the place where they were kept to some other point where they would cease to be an annoyance. Rich paid, no attention to the warning, and thereupon Banker Ohnstead . brought an action in the Supreme Court against the bee keeper, asking $1200 in damages for the annoyances already suffered and for an injunction restraining the defendant from keeping his bees in offensive* proximity to the plaintiffs dwelling. The case came on for trial at the October. term of the Dataware County Circuit, at Delhi, before Jnstiee Douglass Bo&rdman and a jury. The National Bee Keepers' Asuocia/ tion, of which organization Mr. Rich ia a member,recognising the far-reaching, impart- ". anceof the case to the Interest it ropreseota" ?' took up the defense of the alleged insect tree? passers. On behalf of Banker Olmsteid it was claimed that defendant's bee* were vicious and offensive insectL which had caused his household great pain and annoyance by attacking and stinging any member who ventured out) of doors, and had also annoyed and injured his horses and pet stock. The defense pleaded a general denial of the alleged trespasses, and also claimed that even if the trespasses had been committed as charged, itwaa impossible for the other side to identify the . defendant's bees out of the countless swarms Kept m uie ntugnuuruuiju tut u? actual marauders. Much testimony was given pro and coo, the trial lasting several days exerting ereat interest among the bee keepers of Gengal New York. Ale couraTfought? case vigorously on both sides. The outcome of the trial was that the jury found, that the marauders came from the Rich hives^' and that his apiary was a nuisance adcharged, and awarded the plaintiff 9 cents damages and costs. Thereupon the court issued a permanent injunction restraining. ~ the defendant from further matotimBE nuisance to the annoyance of the plalritiffj The defendant appealed from thfa judgment to the General Term, which now hands down)' a decision affirming the verdict of the court below, with costs. Itis understood that the National Bee Keepers' Association will continue the fight by a further appeal to the court of last resort : ; WEST TIBGINIA FLOODS. i I v. . < y .
