By the Associated Preva. San Francisco, Aug. 31.—A1l the banks of San Francisco and many busi ness houses had arranged to close tbeir doors on Monday in recognition of Labor day, as n legal holiday. There may be a change In the programme, however, the superintendent of the United States mint and other federal officials who were in doubt about the law telegraphed to Washington for instructions. They have been informed that the act of congress applies only to the District of Columbia and tbe territories, and their instruc tions are to opeu their doors for busi ness as usual on Monday morning un less the day has been declared a holiday by the etaie legislature. The etate law recognizes a day in October as Labor day. The bank* have withdrawn their notices and will keep open on Monday.

If tbey did not complete their daily tasks a proportionate amount of money wns deducted from their wages. The men asked the manufacturers to abolish the system, hut (he latter re fused. The contractors said that the men were able to earn about $14 a week. The men declared that thuy could make only $9 a week.

The Limbert & Bishop wire mill, a branch of tbe Consolidated Steel and Wire company, which has been closed since last June, has given notice that it will start up in 10 days, but with alO per cent redaction.

The Illinois steel mill of this city will also take a hand in the reduc tion of wagee. The rod department, which has been closed for three months, will start up next week under a new scale oi wages, which ie from 15 to 20 percent loner than the old scale. NON-UNION MINERS.

New Orleans, Aug. 31.—The steam ship Kover, which arrived from Blue fields today, brought the latest advices from Nicaragua, forwarded by the As sociated Press correspondent. The pris oners took their departure on the Yulu without interference from either the English or American authorities, and there was a general feeling of disgust among the foreign residents, who did not then have knowledge of tbe reasons lor inactivity. At Monkey point lay the British cruiser Mohawk, but ehe too was silent. The Englishmen did not act for lack of instructions. Captain Sumner of the C ilumbia stated afterwards that his rea son for Bilence was his knowledge of Nicaraguan character, feeling that tbe lives of the prisoners would have been sacrificed by an act of interference, and feeling also that no naval victory or the destruction of regiments would compen sate for the loes of American lives. Tie Nicaraguans feared to leave with 'hs prisoners from Bluefields, owing to tne threatened interference, and de manded a guarantee from the comman der of the Yulu that he would not signal to the warship. The captain visited Captain Sumner of the Columbia about tho matter. He advised that the Yulu sign no paper and make no promises. This delayed matters, but after three days General Reyes, in command of the soldiery, decided to take chances and set sail. He was prepared to tlow np the ship as soon as any attempt at rescue was made. Tbe voyage was quiet and the prison ers were lunded at Greytown, where they were placed iv a hotel and given considerable liberty until tho boat for Managua arrived. As soon as tbe voy age was at an end both the American and English authorities took action. Captain Sumner, recognizing that an outrage had been committed, wrote a strong letter to Madriz, warning him that no more such acts must be com mitted without tbe expectation of pun ishment. He said tbe Nicaraguan oc cupation was due to American forbear ance, and based upon tbe solemn promise that Americau liberty or prop erty . wonld not be jeopardized. This promise had been violated, and the friendly policy of tbe United States mnnt 'soon have an end. After telling Madriz that he would be held responsible for future misconduct, the Cor.nubin sa}led to Port Eiraon for coal and instructions from Washington. The Marble Head returned as the Columbia was leaving, and Captain O'Neill, called on Madrid at once with similar protests and warnings. Then the Mohawk cajuo to port and also filed a protest and reproof. Madriz has ordered a aearub for weapons and am munition in Bluefields stores, at I made several arrests of negroes for CO Dj icity iv the revolution. FLOOD AND EARTHQUAKE. Prof. Falb's Tidal Wave Far Inland. A Terrible Catastrophe in Texas. The Earth Rent and Floodgates of Heaven Opeued. Many People Drowned at TJralde and 91,500,000 Damage Done to Railroad and Other Property. Bj the Associated Preis. Uvalde, Tex., Aug. 31.—A terrible catastrophe befell this thriving town last night, and today there is mourning in many households. The treacherous THE PICTURE THAT WAS TURNED TO THE WALL. The result of the action of discriminating citizens at Thursday's pri maries. \ Leona river, swollsn to a raging torrent by recent rums, rushed without a moment's warning down upon, the town, submerging and wrecking many houses and drowning a numbsr of people. In this section much destruction by the elements has been chronicled. It is not definitely known how many have been drowned. Among tbe bodies that have been identified are those of Mrs. Joe Hatch, Miss Mattie Edwards, a child of Mr. Maley and two Mexicans. It was about 2 o'clock in the morning wh»n the flood came. The weather bad Lieen threatening and there were omin ous clouds to the north and east of the town. The atmosphere had bees olose early in the evening and predictions of a storm were freely made. During the night the dark clouds rose higher and higher. Just as the storm broke out over the city in all its fury, a torrent of water rushed down the Eeona river, overflowing its banks and flooding the lowlands on either side to a depth of several feet. The east eide of the city is built on low ground and was directly in the patli of this water. All the houses in that part of the town were submerged and in the darkness and throughout the downpour of rain that was falling cculd be heard the cries of distress from the illfaied inhabitants in their wild efforts to save their lives and those of their families. There were a number of miraculous escapes, and the rescuers and the res cued performed many heroic acts. As soon as those in the higher part of the town were made aware of the terriblo flood, the work oi rescue was begnn and carried oat as rapidly as possible in the darkness. Great apprehension is felt for tbe peo ple living on the ditch south of here, wli9re 76 to 10U families live. One Mexican family living on the ranch of T. rjebwartz, below town, are supposed to have been lost, no vestige of the ranch being left. News this evening reaches here that three families living below town were drowned, whose names have not yet been learned. According to reports received at tbe Southern Pacific oflice this evening the terrible flood was augmented by an earthquake. A shoes: of some seconds' duration was distinctly felt during the night. At one place near the city heavy cracks appear on either eide of the river, having apparently no bottom. The track walker of tbe Southern Pacific, alter wading through water up to his neck, succeeded iv intercepting a west bound train. The loss to the Southern Pact lie is enormous, 40 miles of its track and mauy bridges having been washed away. A thorough but sate estimate as to the loss of property, including that of the railroad, will, as far as known, reach a million and a balf dollars. Over 100 carloads of material and :SOO laborers left Ssn Antonio for tbe scene of the wreck this evening. Later —While reports are incomplete, it is estimated that no less than 20 or 20 people have been drowned and the loss to property will exceed 12,000.000, San Antonio, Texas, Ang. 31. —Ad- vices from Waldo, 90 miles west of here, state that a settlement of 75 families, a few miles from that place, was washed away by the terrible Leona river flood, yesterday, and it is thought all were drowned, as nothing has been beard from the plaoe, end it was on low ground, directly in tbe path of the raging torrent of water. Three Mexican families and six other people wero drowned in the flood at Uvalde. Thirty miles of Southern Pacific trick is under water. St. Lot is, Aug. 31. —Dispatches from Southern Texie report heavy rains. Three bridges on the Southern Pacific over the Ssgo river were swept away. Several washouts occurred. Several miles of the Mexican International and the Monett and Mexican Gulf railroads are washed out. The city of Diaz is badly flooded. Three children were drowned. IN THE BKBAKER9. The Bark Glencalrn Ashore at Point Adams. Astoria, Ore., Aug. 31.—The British bark Glencairn, with cement, is in tbe breakers abreast of Point Adams light. The main portion of the crew came ashore in a small boat. Tbe O. R. &N, tug will go out at once. Two tnge have been wired for from Fort Stevens. It is raining hard and a heavy swell is on from the northwest. It is thought im possible to save the vessel. The captain and a part of the crew are still on board. She is a vessel of 1540 tons, and sailed from Antwerp for Portland March 19th. Tbe vessel struck about 5 o'alock this evening. At the time of striking all sails were set and a thick fog and smoke prevailed. A boat was lowered and the first mate and four sailors started for shore to secure assistance. They suc ceeded in reaching tho shore without •ay mishap other than a good drenching and the mate started at once for Port Stephens to telegraph for tugs to go to her assistance. The Point Ad ams life-saving crew were promptly on hand with their surf boat, and immedi ately pat oil" to tbe ship, bringing in nine of her crew on the first trip and five on the second. The captain, second mate, the ship's carpenter, the sail maker and one sailor refused to leave tbe vessel. Those brouget ashore were oared for by Mr. Hogart, superintend ent of the jetty works. It is doubtful if tbe vessel can be saved, as ebe ia bumping on the bottom heavily and sand is filling up astern ol her. Tho master of the vessel is Alex ander Kerr. She carries a crew of 24 men and is 18 days out from Redotido, with a partial cargo of inarM# and cement for Portland firms. BiK INTO CATTLE. 11l ' Resort Flyer Wracked M the W«st Mieelgau Koad.

TEN PAQEIS^ PRICE FIVE CENTS. POPPER AND BUCKLEY. They Are Alleged Partners in Crime. A Big Row in the Democratic Camp. Serious Charg-eg Against the State Chairman. Mr. Clotile on the Warpath—My Partner l*«Ti AnoomoM lllm.elf for Governor of Nevr Yurkt Polltloal Notee. By the Associated Frois. San Francisco, Aug. 31,—The bitter fight that has been waging among the several factions of the San Fraucisco Democracy has reached a sensational climax. Andrew J. Clunie, who is a leading spirit in Demccratie circles, has given publicity to a letter which he will present to the general county committee at its next meeting. The letter bristles with serious charges against Max Pop per, chairman of tbe general committee. It is charged, first, that Popper is the business'partner and political tool ol Chris A. Buckley, the notorious ex-boss, and that he is not a fit person, either morally, politically or socially, to preside over the Democratic organiza tion. It is charged, too, that Popper is in league with Buckley to surrender the Democratic party into Buckley's hands, and that ha lias con spired to compass the defeat of certain Democratic candidates who have op posed his plans. It is charged, too, that Ponper and Buckley have all along been and are now partners in a city street sweeping contract and a big contract for doing the government draying at this port. The most serious charge, how ever, is that I'opper has publicly con fessed to having regularly furnished the sum of .SOSO per month, which was paid, with bis knowledge, to certain members of the last board of supervisors to pro tect himself and Buckley in their street sweeping contracts. The letter closes with an appeal for tbe removal of Pop per from the chairmanship oi the gen eral committee. Levi P. Morton AnßtunCH Illuiself lis a Vaudtdate for Governor. Rhine Ciiff, N. V., Aug. 31.— Tb« following letter explains itself: Ei.leksi.ie, N. V,, Aug. 31.—1n re« eponse to the very largo nnmber of sue geationa made to me that I should de clare my attitude with reference to the Republican state conventiou, I addreeg myself to the Republicans of the etato of New York, and beg to say that while the suggestions are in themselves on usual, I venture to express tho hope that the urgency in the public journals for tbe announcement of my decision wa» not occasioned by any undue hesi tation on my part. I am certainly not seeking any nom ination from the convention, I have been absent from the country bo long and so far away that no one can reler to the sligbest movement on my part, to cause a decision in which my nam* has been need with tbe names of other Republicans who are deservedly hon ored throughout the state for their services and character. I have put my self in nobody's way, nor have I Buffered any one to do that for me wnich I dis claim for myself. And now, having been five days on American soil, after 12 months' absence, and having examined tbe situation as well as possible in that period, I beg to say that in the approaching councils of the party in convention assembled, I desire to be regarded as a soldier in tbe Republican army, ready to receive tbe commands of my fellow-citizens of likes peranaßion in public policy with myself, whether those commands involve lead ership or service in the ranks. When I left tbe vice-president's ohair, and since, I have had no thought, mncli less desire, to re-enter public life. Man ifold considerations regarding my family, which I have no right to obtrude npon the public, led me to desire to spend the remainder of my days in retirement. By the kindness of my countrymen, having held high ofhoial positions at home and abroad, I am profoundly content to let the record stand. Bnt do not under stand me to imply that I look lightly upon the office of governor of tbe state of New York. I know something of tho resources, the capacities and the needs of the Empire state, and I appreciate the importance, the usefnlnesa and tbe honor of tbe great office of the chief executive. Should I be called to fill it, I shall strive earnestly to serve-the people with steadfastness of purpose, and'to faithfully administer the public trust. Finally, I aver in the aincereat terms, if the convention shall prefer to tee any other name than mine upon the Repub lican banner, I shall accept the result withont regret or sens* of injury, and will give to the successful candidate my hearty and unwavering support. Trusting the action of the convention will be harmonious and redound to the best interests of the party and state, I remain,with great respect, your obedient servant, Livr P. Morton.
