A COLORADO STORM
Two and. a Half Inches of Rain In
Half an Hour
DENVER, Col., June 11.—A special to,
the News from Ouray, Col., says: The
morning light reveals the extent of the
devastation of yesterday evening's
storm, and reports have been coming
from the country all day, so that we are
able to tell pretty nearly how far It ex
tended and the amount of damage done.
Two and a half Inches of water fell in
less than half an hour over a territory
estimated from five to ten miles wide
and ten to twenty miles long. The whole
country had the appearance of an in
land sea, and the angry waves came
down the valley In a furious torrent,
sweeping everything before them. The
crest of one stream that was running
only a few Inches became a torrent 20
(feet deep, filling the valley, flooding the
.yards, cellars and houses, and washing
out and carrying away fences, crops,
gardens, shrubbery and trees. From
every valley and canyon floods came
pouring, swelling the flood and increas
ing the terror. Hall drifted, and today
It Is piled in heaps four feet deep. Noth
ing like it ever was known here. Dead
slock is being gathered up and carted
away in great loads. People are shov
eling the drifted hail out of the buildings.
Fortunately little wind acompanled the
storm. Otherwise, windows and houses
would have been riddled and much
greater destruction of stock would have
occurred. This point seemed to be the
center of the storm. Estimates of dam
age are placed at from $1000 to $25,000.
IN INDIANA
INDIANAPOLS, Ind., June 11.—A se
vere thunder storm came up this after
noon at 5 oelock,. and William Owens
and Miss Ida Alyea were killed by light
ning.

reports from the northern, eastern and
central sections of New England tonight
show flooded rivers and'lakes. The two
days' record will Include nearly a dozen
lives lost and great damage to railroad
and mill property, aggregating at least
$500,000. distributed over a small terri
tory. Its equal In June has not been
known for a great many years.
Froze Him Out
4 *AN FRANCISCO, June 11.—M. H.
>*rossmayer, a bond broker, commenced
suit today against the San Francisco
stock and bond exchange to recover
damages In the sum of $25,000 alleged to
have been sustained on account of a
conspiracy on the part of the members
to drive him out of business. This.sult
Is the outcome of the recent fight be
tween the rival exchanges, the. stock ex
change adopting a resolution to th';
effect that no member of the stock ex
change should do business with those of
the rival board under pc nalty of fine and
suspension. Grossmayer violated this
rule, and being unable to pay his fine
of 81000, was compelled to sell out.
EUROPEAN ENTENTE
Russia and France Will Conclude an
Alliance
LONDON, June 11.—The Times' Paris
correspondent telegraphs: I am in a
position to affirm that a definite treaty
of alliance will be signed during M.
Faure's approaching visit to Russia by
the Emperor Nicholas, President Faure,
Count Muravieff, the Russian foreign
minister, and M. Hanotaux, the French
foreign minister. The treaty, whose
terms have already been settled, will be
one of the most laboriously constructed
instruments of its kind.
Ever since 1889 It has been in process of
construction. Two czars and three
French presidents, with their respective
ministers, have been working upon it,
the negotiations often being suspended
owing to deaths, resignations and simi
lar causes of ltnerruptlon, A military
convention was carefully considered and
the instruments exchanged were settled
on the basis of an alliance between the
two nations and signed in the early part
of 1884. This has been the sole docu
ment hitherto binding the two countries.
A Rancher's Woes
SAN FRANCISCO, June 11.—Robert
Flint of San Louis Obispo has brought
suit through J. J. Raver against C. T.
McDermott and C. C. Clark to recover
$14,000. In November, 1894, Flint found
himself In financial straits and he feared
that he would lose the San Juan ranch
of 80,000 acres-in San Louis Obispo
county. To protect himself from a
threatened foreclosure by his creditors,
Flint alleges that he gave McDermott
and Clark a deed to the ranch on con
dition that they would advance him
$82,000. Another deed was made trans
ferring the property to Flint and It was
placed! in escrow, the agreement being
that it should be delivered to him within
a year upon returning the money ad
vanced and spent on his account. On
November 15, 1895, he made a settlement
with the defendants who claimed that
he owed them $82,000. Flint has since
then received information that leads
him to believe that Clark and McDer
mott did not expend over $68,0p0.
Brewers' Convention
BUFFALO, N. Y„ June 11.—The con
vention of the Brewers of the United
States concluded work this afternoon
with the election of the following offi
cers: President, W. C. Berler, Phila
delphia; Vice-Presidents, Rudolph
Brand of Chicago; Isaac Dananburg of
New York; Treasurer, William Ringler,
New York; Secretary, Richard Katzen
meyer, New York; Trustees, Joseph
Theur, Chicago; Henry Nlcolaus, St.
Louie; Charles Class, Philadelphia; J.
W. Brown, Brooklyn. -The report of the
vigilance committee, which was pre
sented, referred to the "steadily prog
ressing decline of what In certain States
might in time have been styled the pop
ularity of prohibition." The defeat j>t
prohibition at the polls in thirteen
states was reported.
A New Firearm
NEW YORK, June 11.—A dispatch
from Berlin to the Journal says: Fol
lowing the equipment of the German
field artillery, the celebrated gun manu
facturer, Manser, has denied that he has
perfected a new and remarkable small
arm. His new invention embraces pistols
and carbines, six-shooters, ten-shooters
and twenty-shooters, all of which are
self-loading after the first shot, the sol
dier having nothing to do but aim and
shoot. Including the time consumed in
the consecutive loadings of the maga
zine, a practiced marksman can make
sixty shots per minute with the six
shooter, eighty with the ten-shooter, and
ninety with the twenty-shooter. Trials
with both guns and pistols have proved
surprisingly successful.
A Heavy Failure
NEW TORK, June 11.—A special to
the Herald from St. Pierre, Martinique,
says: Intense excitement prevails here
In commercial circles, owing to the fail
ure of the house of C. Arles>& Co., which
has suspended payment, with liabilities
amounting to more than $1,000,000, There
are large assets, but unavailable at
present. The failure carries In its train
the stoppage of six or seven sugar fac
tories, which have been supplied with
funds by this Arm through the sugar
making season, and will throw several
hundred persons out of employment. The
British Colonial Bank has ceased selling
drafts on New York, and the general out
look Is gloomy.

teen homing pigeons, owned by H. J.
Baumgartner, President of the Mil
waukee Common Council, have finished

less than a minute for each mile. The

National Federation of Homing Pigeon
Fanciers.

BLACK GOWNS
Sole Vestment of Reformed
Episcopalians
A CHURCH WAR THREATENED
THE FIRST OTJNS ARE PRETTY
HEAVY ONES
Bishop Cheney Resigns All His Offices
and Kiss Benson Ceases to
Contribute
Associated Press Special Wire.
NEW YORK, June 11.—At today's
session of the general council of the
Reformed Episcopal church a resolu
tion of congratulations to Queen Vic
toria upon the completion of her six
tieth year'of reign was passed. After a
long debate the council adopted the mo
tion of Bishop Campbell to make thu
black gown the vestment to be used
on all occasions.
Bishop Cheney of Chicago then an
nounced that he would himself read a
letter which ordinarily should be read
by the secretary, but which, under the
peculiar circumstances, he should prefer
to read to the council.
The letter, addressed to the presiding
bishop, began by saying: "As you are
aware, I have kept Bilence during the
debate upon the vestment question, not
because I had profound convictions, but
because It seemed to me useless to waste
words when I forsaw they would have
no effect with the majority."
The conclusion of the letter was as fol
lows: "Such a destruction of the larger
liberty which this church has enjoyed
from its birth hour and such a departure
from the solemn pledges of Bißhop Cum
mins, compel me to enter my earnest
protest.
"I cannot with good conscience hold
any office In the gift of the council,
which I am convinced has 'laid the ax
at the root' of all Christian liberty In
this church.
"I therefor© most sadly but positively
resign my position as a member of the
special church extension trust, as trus
tee of theology seminary, as member of
the committee on doctrine and worship
and any other place which I may hold
by the authority of the general council.
"Without the slightest question of the
conscientiousness of the majority talcing
the action of today, and with profound
affection for yourself, I am faithfully
yours,
"CHARLES EDWARD CHENEY,
"Bishop of the Synod of Chicago."
Bishop Letans, with an expression of
regret at Bishop Cheney's action, had
hardly secured the acceptance of the
resignation by the council when C. A.
Morton of Philadelphia announced to
the council that Mlssi Harriet S. Benson
had-delegated him and William Tracy
to state that on account cf
the action of the council In relation to
the vestments she would withdraw, until
further notice, the Income from her con
tribution to the special church exten
sion trust and the spcelal synod trust.
These trusts provide an Income to the
church of $15,000 a year. A hush fell over
the council'at this announcement. It
was followed quickly by the resignations
of a number of prominent clergymen and
laymen from Important committees. R.
W. Hare of Chicago resigned from the
commute on Sabbath schools. Rev. Wil
liam Parley, professor In the'theologlcal
seminary at Philadelphia, resigned from
the committee on constitutions and can
ons. Rev. P. J. Waltmer left the board
of trustees of the publication society.
James Van Epps of Cleveland resigned
from the committee on constitution and
canons.
The old presbyteries of the council
showed their concern in their faces.
The proceedings of the council were at
a standstill for fully fifteen. minutes
while men left their seats and gathered
together to whisper to each other.
Finally Bishop Fallows called for an
Immediate meeting of the general com
mittee of the church and an adjournment
of the session. A member of the council
moved that the secretary do not put the
announcement of the withdrawal of the
trust funds on the minutes. He said that
the council should refuse to receive any
such notification, except over Miss Ben
son's own signature. The Rev. Dr. Tracy
said that he was in favor of leaving the
announcement off the minutes. It had
been made until further notice, only as
a notice to certain parishes who had
made application to the fund that they
would be unable to draw from it this
year. It would be best to wait for fur
ther communication.
The council then adjourned.
Bishop Fallows was asked what the
prospects of the church were under the
crisis. He was Inclined to take a hope
ful view. The trouble was serious, he
said, but he did not apprehend the break
ing up of the church.
THE LUTHERANS
MANSFIELD, 0., June 11.—The
Lutheran synod got down to business
today, and as soon as the opening serv
ices of the morning session were over
began raising $10,000 to cover a deficit
that had been troubling the board of
home missions for the last year. It took
almost the entire morning session and
part of the afternoon session, but It
was Anally accomplished.
Sunken Treasure
MILWAUKEE, Wis., June 11.—If the

DIDN'T CONSPIRE
Mrs. Craven Doesn't Remember Lots
of Things
SAN FRANCISCO, June 11.—Judge
Slack's court room was crowded to suf
focation this morning when the trial of
the Craven case was called. The exami
nation of the defendant, Mrs. Nettle
R. Craven, was resumed. Counsel for
the heirs sought to prove by witness
that she entered into agreements with
various persons by the terms of which
they were to receive part of the estate
of the late Senator Fair, in the event of
her recovering the same with their aid,
but the fair defendant denied the Insin
uations of counsel with considerable
asperity. She was, however, compelled
to admit that she had signed a "paper"
for Judge Aitken, and this document
being produced by order of the court,
proved to be an agreement that in the
event of Mrs. Craven lading successful
Aitken was to receive five per cent of the
property. Counsel for Mrs. Craven en
deavored to extricate her from her dif
ficulties, but Attorney Wheler of coun
sel for the plaintiffs was merciless, and
insisted on the right to prove charges of
fraud and conspiracy by showing that
Mrs. Craven had tried to suborn per
jury to support the case. The lady skill
fully evaded a number of awkward
questions and responded to others which
she could not evade with the words: "I
do not remember," but Insisted stren
uously that she had made no agreement
to pay any witnesses for their evidence.
A Brutal Tramp
ANTIOCH, June 11.—A man, giving
his name as Frank Hayes of Oakland,
for whom the officers and farmers have
been looking for the last week for at
tempting to assault two women near
Brentwood, has been caught. Before the
officers landed him in the county jail at
Martinez he narrowly escaped summary
punishment at the hands of indignant
farmers. He was only saved by the
prompt action of the officers, who hur
ried him out of Brentwood, where a
crowd had assembled, and brought him
to Antloch; from there he was taken to
Martinez.
Highwaymen Jailed
BBLOIT, Wis., June 11.—Two Deputy
Sheriffs and two highwaymen were shot
last night after an attempted hold-up of
a Dele.it workman. The robbers ran
through the streets of Beloit, and after
a fusllade between them and citizens,
two of the gang were captured. The offi
cers wounded were George Bltzler and
Ed Tul'ey. 'Both will recover. One of the
tramps was shot In the face and another
in the lower part of the body.
A Fatal Fight
AL.TA, Cal., June 11.—Last night Geo.
Sharon of Dutch Flat and Ben Billings
of Towles, while Intoxicated, became in
volved In an altercation in a saloon.
Words led to blows and the young men
adjourned to the street for the purpose
of settling their differences with their
fists. Neither showed any science and
honors were easy for some minutes, but
Sharon finally swung wildly with his
right and landing squarely upon Bil
lings' Jaw knocked him down. As the
latter made no effort to rise his op
ponent supposed he had simply stunned
him, but on investigation it was found
that Billings' neck had been broken by
the fall and that he was dead. Sharon
promptly surrendered himself to local
officers.
The Hoffman Murder
SAN FRANCISCO, June 11.—Until the
inquest begins on the body of Isaac Hoff
man, and- that will be on Tuesday, In
all likelihood the developments' of the
Battery-street mystery will probably re
veal little further bearing directly upon
the fate of the dead merchant, though
there will doubtless be many things
to be added to or taken away from the
first statement which Theodore Figel
made to the police and the only utter
ances of his given out by them for pub
lication. There will dobtless be further
revelations, also, as to where the money
of the firm went, and as to how its dis
position was recorded by Figel. Attor
ney Ach is still making charges of crook
edness, but the business community is
evincing a disposition to await state
ments under oath at a judicial investiga
tion.
Indian Murderers Taken
DENVER, Col., June 11.—A special to the
News from Miles City, Mont., says: Sheriff
Glggs and Stock Inspector Smith reached
this city this evening, having in custody
Yellow Hair and Sam Crow, the two
Cheyenne Indians implicated In the Hoover
murder. Agent Stouch called the Indians
all In and the arrests were made by the
sheriff, no resistance being offered. Chief
White Bull is still at liberty, but can be
arrested at any time, having expressed
himself as willing to appear in court when
wanted. The sheriff did not think it ad
visable to arrest him until matters had sub
sided a little.
Yellow Fever Bacillus
MONTEVIDEO, June 11.—Dr. Sanarelli,
In a lecture delivered before delegates from
all parts of South America, members of
the diplomatic corps and others, announced
yesterday that he has discovered the cause
of yellow fever to be a bacillus which ho
had named "Yeteroid," and which was
very rare. He explained that It infested
the blood of patients and their bodies after
death. The baccllli, he continued, could
be easily eliminated by secondary injec
tions and he hoped soon to discover a
