The Herald LOS ANGELES, SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 3. 1894 DESTRUCTION AND RUIN. No Improvement in the Co lumbia Flood. Portland's Water-Front Ware houses Flooded. A Missouri Town That Is Melting Away. The "Big Moddjr" Hp Wlnthrop and Its Waters Now Flow Through the Main Btreat. By the Associated Press. Portland, Ore., Jnne 2.—The flood continues to c rue, and there is no indi cation oi an improvement in tbe situa tion. At 6 o'clock this evening the water atood 3U'„ feet above low water mark, and the meagre reports received from the Upper Columbia show that the river and all ita tributaries are still ria ing. Telegraph wirea ate prostrated all along tbe Columbia, which makea it im possible to get at thetrueatateof affaire. Tbe loss wili undoubtedly foot up into the millions of dollars when reports from all tbe flooded dlatricts are received. Hundreds of people living on the low lands have been driven from their homes, and scores of bouses can be seen floating down to the ocean. The Union Pacific tonight sent out the ateamer Harvest Queen, which will at tempt to ascend tue falls at The Cas cade*. The railroad on both eidea of the river at Tbe Cascadeß ia under water, and communication with tbe upper river ia entirely cut off. In this city thiß evening a violent thunder and rain etoim, accompanied by high winds, adds to tbe demoralized condition of things. Tbe first floors of hundreds of busi ness houses are covered with water, and many concerna doing business on Front, First and Second atreeta have opened temporary offices in tip-town streets. False sidewalks on elevated platforms have been built up and down the flooded streets, but owing to the necessity for keeping the etreet crossings clear for tbe passage of teams, it ia impossible to reach many stores except in boats. Gam boots are of no avail in a large part of tbe submerged diatrict where tbe water is too deep for wading. In many places there is a ationg un dertow which rendera pedestrianiem dangeroua, even where the water baa not such a great depth. Frequently lnlsbape ul an aupleasant character have been caused by careleaaly con structed platforms dropping persons off iute the water, or tbe jostling of the crowds pushing them off the platforms. The overturning of boats and the step ping of gum-booted wadera into too deep water have not been uncommon occasions for merriment on the part of the bystanders who are lounging about tba flooded districts. The good nature with which the pop ulace take tbe inconvenience of the flood ia surprising. Business men smile at the rapid submerging of tbeir stores and appear to see n humorous aide to it, not withstanding the consequent loss by damage to their stocks. Free boata be tween convenient points and Front and First atreet stores have been provided by tbe proprietora for the use of their customers. Large forcea of men are kept busily engaged in removing atocka of merchandise to higher elevations, raised platforms, eto. Boatmen, expreßsmen and many labor era are reaping a much-needed harvest, from the high water calling them into employment. Every boat baa been called into aervice. Many of them are making regular trips over specified routea; otbera are picking up passengers wherever found and taking them to their desired deatination; aome are de pending upon aight-Beera for remunera tion, while still others are regularly em ployed by boaiueas men. For half an hour tonight thia city and vicinity ware viaited by a severe elec trical storm and a heavy rain, accom panied by high winds. Lightning flaahea were frequent and many pereona were badly frightened, ttorma of thia char acter being of rare occurrance here. A number of trees near tbe city were atruck and knocked into splinters by the lightning. No eerioua damage in this city haa been reported. To tbe north tbe Btortn is said to have been more severe, but telegraph communication ia abut off. Tacoma and Seattle are en tirely abut out co far as telegraph ser vice is concerned. WIPED AWAY. The Spring Rlaa In tha Mlaionrl Wrtiki tha Village of VTlnthrop. St. Joseph. (Mo.) Jane 2.—Ass, direct result of the high water in the Missouri river, which will not begin to recede for some time, the once prosperous village of Wintbrop, 40 miles south of St. Joe on the Rock Island, Hannibal and St. Joe, Missouri Pacific and Kansas City, St. Joe and Council Bluffs railroads, will aoon be wiped oil the face of the earth. Tbe Miesouri river, when it first began its spring rise this year started to cut tbe bank at the edge of the town and adjacent to it, and today half of tbs place melted into tbe river, together with half a dozen farms of 160 acres each. The channel of the river was half a mile west of Wintbrop last year, but today that channel ia a sandbar and the river now occupies what was once the main atreeta of the village. The water is now withiu a few rods of the tracks of the four companiea which are parallel with each other at that point and it ia rapidly eating ita way into the right of way. All four companies are preparing to abandon their road-beda and enter Atchison from a point further north. In such an event the $100,000 railroad bridge connecting Wintbrop and Atchison will be abandoned. r> Wintbrop, which was a town of 1300 inhabitants, has already lost half of its popnlation, and as the houses cannot be sold, tbey are being torn town and car ried into the country. The work of de moliehing the Methodist chnrch, a strnotore which coat $10,001) a year ago, is now going on, it having been sold to a farmer for $60, who will aae its material to make a barn. Tbe river is now within a few feetof it and unless lie can finish it before tomorrow it will be carried away. Ranobera who owned farms valued at $10,000 two months ago, •re without an acre of ground today. TBAGBDT IN DAKOTA. A Married Man Attempt,* BeTeral Mur der* and Then Snleldee. Abrtom, S. D., June 2.—William Shepard attempted to murder bis wife, her father and mother and Mrs. John Stevens and Jobn Sebris. Shepard'e wife bad left him to live with her pa rents.

Train No. 17 wcs stopped at Tipton by orders from division superintendent and retnrned to Fresno and will go down via Porterville. The announcement of the capture was made from tue stage of the opera house in this city during au entertainment and great excitement prevailed for some time. The second gang of industrials did not bave a band in tbe hold-np, and are now on the road between jpixley and Delano. The special carrying the posse arrived at Pixley about 12:30 a.m., and the officers are awaiting daylight to come in.

At 2 o'clock twenty men arouaed Alexander Kerr, the jailor, choked him, and taking tbe keya, went to McCurdy'a cell. He waa dragged to the lawn in front of the building and mutilated in tbe aame way he had cut Berry.

Everything .Remains Quiet at Cripple Creek. Striking nuil Rioting Coal Miliar* In Tn dlana to Be Sappresned by Means of Mllltla and a Oat- Hng Oan. By the Associated Preii. Colorado Springs, 0010., Jane 2. — Conference between Governor White and the mine owners will, in all prob ability amount to nothing. The confer ence began at 3 o'clock this afternoon and reassembled tonight, and at this hour (10:30 o'clock) ia still in progress. Governor Waite demanded that al Btrikers should be granted immunity from prosecution for past acts, and there ia no likelihood that the owners will con sent to this propoeition. John Gaidar wood, president of the Miners' union, is here bnt sat in a separate room in the Colorado college when the conference was held. While here, Deputy United States Marshal Wise approached him and thrust a document into Calderwood'a banda, bat neither would divulge its contents. It is believed the paper ia a citation from the federal courts issued at the instance of the Ravens Mining company. Citizens swarmed about the college daring both the day and night Bessione. The people did not barm Oal derwood, but hia arrest or worse was prevented by police interference. The mine owners have consented to pay tbe wages demanded by the strikers, but refuse to employ none but uuion men, When informed of this. Governor Waite said; "When the mine-owners appoint a man to arbitrate, then I am ready to do ao. I would not arbitrate with every damned lawyer in Colorado Springs." Sheriff Bowers aerved the governor with official notice, calling for troops. Waite replied, shaking his fist: "If the G — damned mine-owners want peace, they can have it in live minutes." Cripple Cbeu, Jane 2.—Everything remains quiet upon the surface here. There is a oontinual atream of citizens making their way out of the district and business ia becoming more and more at a standstill. The miners are constantly drilling in the use of light arms and ar tillery, aa well as in regalar military tactica, under the command of General Johnson, the Weat Point graduate. Large numbers of anion miners are said to be coming in, and the minera claim to be in far better condition for a battle now than at any time before. There baa been no mail re ceived in camp since Tuesday night, and all tbe telegraph wires are down. It ia claimed that the strikers are re sponsible for this latter condition. The only communication with the outside world ia over a single shaky telephone wire, by means of which this dispatch Is sent out. At any moment this ia liable to go down. Tbe atrikere have determined to make an advance upon the deputies' camp. MILITIA ORDERED OUT. Cannelabarg Coal Minor* on a Strike Show Defiance. Indianapolis, June 2.—Fifteen com panies of the state militia and a squad of artillerymen with a gatling gun have gone to Caunelsburg and Sbelburn to suppress tbe rioting of tbe striking coal miners. Fonr companiea of tbe artillery and one company from Anderson, under the command of Adjutant General Rob bins, left here at 7 o'clock to night for Cannelebnrg. They will be joined at Seymour by other companiea. The atrikera are defiant, and trouble is expected. At Sbelburn the situation ia serious. Tbe sheriff attempted, with the assistance of a strong posse, to move coal cara sidetracked there, but waa driven away by tbe stri kers. The news of the governor ordering out the militia waa received with defi ance, and the atrikera deolare they are prepared to whip any force the governor sends. They are armed, and it is said are well supplied with giant powder, with which they threaten to blow up any train which attempts to bring aoldiera into their midst. Col. J. W. McKee of thia city has left for Sbelbnrn. He will meet companies comprising about 300 men. > Tbe feeling at Terre Hante, a point in touch with the minora' tronblea, ia that the force is insufficient and bloodshed cannot be averted. When tbe militia arrived at Oannelburg the railroad com pany began unmolested to repair dam ages done its tracks and will soon be able to run trains through. State Troops Arrive. MrrcHELt., Ind., June 2.—Five hun dred atate troops arrived tonight, under command of Adjutant-General Rob bine, and immediately went into camp, preparatory to moving into Cannela burg, 40 miles west of here, tomorrow.

He spoke for an hour and 20 minutes, and scored hia oppon ents. William Owens, be said, was never in the race, and if he (Breckin ridge) waa dead or removed from tbe diatrict, it would be just the same to Owens, since he was never at any time between Owene and Congress. He poked considerable fun at Judge Oeorge Kinkaid.whd made such a strong speech againat him at Versailles yester day, but when referring to an address of Rsv. Deering, bis old war comrade, he admitted that tbe letter's words hurt htm more than anything that had been said against him. If tbeir places could be changed, the colonel declared be would not speak of Deering aa the latter had spoken of him. He said that the anffenn B > hia old comrade's words bad caused him could not be paid for by a lifetime in congmse. He also excoriated Professor McOarvey, the preacher who has been ao bitter against bim. After Breckinridge had finished, Evan Settle, bis other opponent, took the stand. Nearly 50 ladies marched into the hall. Then Colonel Breckinridge and nearly all bia followers left the house, and Settle finished bia apeeoh to the ladies and Owena men. SENATE AND HOUSE.

Washington, June 2. —The second day'a debate in the senate on the sugar schedule was preceded by three hours of, at times, hot diacueaion of Mr. Hill's resolution to throw open the doora of tbe oommlttee investigating the method of forming tbe sugar schedule, but as it proceeded by unanimous consent, no vote waa bad at ,ts conclusion. Mr. Hill championed open session in a vigor ous manner, arguing that in all fairneaa to witnesses and others, the committee sessions should be open.

THE PLACE IS SELECTED For the Democratic State Convention. It Will Be Held at San Francisco. The 21st of August Chosen ai the Day. The State Central Committee Total ll Furor or the Admission of Proxlea—Popper'e Realg* nation Declined. By the Associated Press. San Francisco, June 2.—The meeting of the Democratic etate central cool, mittee waa called for 1 p. m. today In Metropolitan temple, but it was nearly 2 o'clock wheu Chairman Max Poppei called the meeting to order. The main business of tbe committee consisted in naming the time and place for holding the atate convention, and, as in the Re publican state central committee, quite a battle was expected. The three oitiea in the field were Sacramenco, Hants Cruz and San Francisco. D. V. Jackson on motion waa ap pointed to tbe vacancy caused by the death of Mr. Brown of Siskiyou. C. L. Montgomery and Dan Troy were appointed temporary secretaries pro tern. The following resolution, offered by Garrett Mclnerney, waa then adopted: Resolved, That tbil convention, now proceed to call a state conventio v, to be composed of delegates from tbe several counties of tbe state, to nominate a atate ticket, candidates for representatives in congress, membera of the atate board of equalization and railroad commiaaion era, to be voted for at tbe general elec tion to be held November 6, 1894, and that in arranging for the call thereof the committee adopt the following order ol business: First—Fix the basis of representation of tbe various counties of tbe atate. Seoond—Fix the date of holding the convention. Third—Fix the place of holding the convention. Fourth—Establish tbe mode of se lecting tbe delegates. Fifth—Establiah the test for voting at the primary electiona. After tbe adoption of tbe resolution Mr. Popper called the vice-president to the ebair, and then Secretary Troy rend the resignation of Max Popper aa chair man of the atate central committee. The delegates to a man refused to accept it, claiming that if San Francisco needed the aervices required of Mr. Popper, the state at large required them more. The resolution on tbe basis of repre sentation called forth about one-thiid of those present wishing a etate convention of abont 1000. One of 605 delegates waa finally agreed upon. The date of tbe atate convention wast fixed for Tuesday, Auguat 121 st. The representation of tbe several counties ia aa follows: Alameda 36, Alpine 1, Amador 7, Bntte 11, Calaveras 7, Colusa 6, Contra Costa 7, Del Norte 2, El Dorado 7, Freano 14, (ilenn 4, Humboldt 9. Inyo 2. Kern 7, Kings 3, Lake 3, Laseen 3, Loa Angeles 41, Madera 3, Marin 5, Mariposa 3, Mendocino 10, Merced 5, Modoc 3, Mono 1, Monterey 8, Napa 8, Orange 5, Placer 8, Plumaa 3, Riverside 5, Sacra mento 18, San Benito 4, San Bernardino 10, San Diego 10, San Francisco 155, San Joaquin 16, San Luia Obispo 6, San Mateo 5, Santa Barbara 6, Santa Clara 21, Santa Cruz 8, Shasta 6, Sierra 3, Sis kiyou 8, Solano 11, Sonoma 18. Stanis laus 7, Sutter 4, Tehama 5, Trinity 3, Tulare 11, Tuolumnes, Ventura 5, Yuba 6, Yolo 9. Chairman Popper announced that in determining the place of holding the atate convention only regular delegatea would be allowed to vote, thus barring out proxies. Mr. Mclnerney Baid that he opposed tbe motion. It had been made only be cause Mr. Popper found that with prox ies voted be would be in the minority. Mr. Filcher claimed that San Fran cisco was trying to dictate to tbe party throughout the stale. That city waa given more than a fair representation in the atate central committee. In addi tion, it solicited proxies and then voted them againßt tbe interests of the dele gatea who sent them. He waa opposed to the voting of proxies. Mr. Popper said he waa opposed to proxies because be waa opposed to hold ing the atate convention in San Fran cisco. He knew that certain members of the committee had loaded themaelves np with country proxies that they in tended to vote for San Francisco. He intended the vote aa a test aa to whether the convention should be held in thia city. The votes resulted in 80 votes in favor of allowing proxies and 38 votes against them. The vote waa regarded aa a test one in favor of San Francisco, and the hopea of the Sacramento delegation dropped to 30 degrees below zero. Max Popper then aroae to advocate the selection of Santa Crnz as the place for holding the state convention. It was decided to hold the state con vention in thia city August 21, The ap portionment was fixed at 1 delegate for every '200 voters or fraotion thereof, amounting to 50 or more cast for ttie Cleveland electora in 1892, provided that Alpine oounty shall have one delegate. Max Popper offered his resignation aa chairman of tbe Democratic state cen tral committee, but it waa not accepted. "Honolulu's" Unsuccessful Escape. Kansas City, June 2. —Joseph Irvine Potter, alias "Honolulu," who some time ago came into prominence becauae of hia swindling operatlona while repre senting himself aa an agent of the Ha waiian government, made a daring at tempt to escape from the iourth etory ol the county jail early today.
