Navahoe, the first big yacht designed
5jy Nat Herreshoff, and fourteen other
German and English yachts.
Since King Edward's arrival at>
Kiel there has been a distinct change
in the management of affairs. The
American millionaires, for example,
who had previously been included in
tne Kaiser's list of guests have been
excluded from all official festivities
since Edward reached Kiel. They are
much annoyed Uy the slight. It is
understood that the British King objects
to them. Sir Thomas Lipton
is also excluded on the ground that
Emperor William objects to his presence.
King Edward has also upset the Emperor's
arrangements for His Majesty's
entertainment. Edward has refused
to review the German fleet, and
has also declined to race on board the
ft Meteor. The King dlsliltfes' yachting,"
his dislike dating back to the time of
htw narrow escape by the falling of
the mast of Sir Thomas Lipton's
yacht Shamrock several years ago.

?With fair skies, a delightful atmosphere
and a genial company of enthusiastic
visitors, West Virginia
day at the World's Fair is a notable
occasion.
Governor White and family, part

THE THREE NEGROES ACCUSED
OF HOUSE-BREAKING ARE
STILL IN JAIL.
The three negroes. Frank Royster,
Sam Drayden and Charles Laster,
who were arrested at Monongah by
Chief Finley and brought to the
county- jail by hint and Deputy Watson
last evening, were given a hearing
before Justice Bennington this
morning. They were charged with
breaking into the houses of Fasqua
Morrow and Frank Alevadia at New
England yesterday morning. One of
them claimed that he entered the
houses for something to eat but did
not get it. Another testified that
the one who went inside got nothing
to eat but did get five razors and a
gold watch. The evidence was
strong enough to hold them for the
grand jury. Their bond was fixed at
$500 in default of which they were
sent back to jail. Too many robberies
are being committed around
here and this way of dealing with offenders
may put a stop to them.

IS THE RESULT OF A RAGING
FLOOD?ROBINSON RUN VALLEY
IS A PLACE OF DESOLATION.
PITTSBURG. June 2!*.?One body
recovered, a number of men. women *
and children reported missing and
property damage estimated at close
to a quarter of a million of dollars
is the record of a cloudburst along
Robinson run, between Carnegie
and McDonald, on main line of the
Pittsburg, Cincinnati Chicago and St.
Louis railway, shortly after five
o'clock yesterday afternoon.
'ine nrst victim recuv ei cu ?aa
unknown Italian. The body was
found at McDonald and removed to
an undertaking establishment at two
o'clock this morning.
From McDonald to Carnegie
houses are washed from their foundations
while Oakdale, where several
lives are reported lost, was entirely
cut off from telegraph, telephone
and railroad communication.
At 5:30 o'clock this morning a reporter
arrived at McDonald, after ;
making a thorough inspection of the
damage at Fort Pitt, Walker's Mills, ;
Iffley. Gregg. Oakdaie. Xoblestown
and Sturgeon by the storm of last
evening. On both sides of ftobinson
run at Oakdale ' houses were partly
under water. At least forty
houses were wrecked, sotne being beyond
repair. There were rumors of
several lives being lost, but no bodies,
except an unknown Italian at
McDonald were discovered. At Oakdale,
which had been for hours cut
off, inquiries were made regarding
the missing Coyle family, but no one
seemed to have any definite information
as to their whereabouts. The
water was still several feet deep on
many streets. Houses were found
wedged against the wrecks or bridges
and into this wreckage, the volilnteer
firemen of the towns which suffered
from hte cloudburst started
with the morning dawn searching
for possible victims.
Every bridge across Robinson run,
from McDonald to Carnegie has been
carried away. At six o'clock the firemen
of McDonald started searching
three houses wedged into the remnants
of a stone bridge in McDonald.
There is some danger from
fire, owing to the fact that every oil-'
pipe of Forest, South Pen and "Wheeling
Oil Companies, which are located
along Robinson run were
broken and the fluid flowing on top
of the receding waters. Those seen
by the reporter seemed confident
while there may be several victims,
the loss of life will be small, but
that the property damage will be
very large.
In McDonald alone the damage
was conservatively estimated last
night at $30,000. A partial list of
those who suffered at McDonald follows:

WOMAN
CAUSED
ALARM
CLERKS FLED FROM LADY RE- j
PORTED TO BE FROM HOME
INFESTED WITH SMALLPOX.
A woman -created a great deal of j
excitement at some, of our leading j
stores yesterday. Some one thought
her to he Mrs. Lake Frickett, whose
husband has smallpox on Jackson
street. The next report was that she
was a woman from Monongah and
that there was smallpox in her family.
The report soon spread and at a
couple of the stores the clerks ran
from her and others started on
the run for a physician's office to
he -vaccinated. Some are not over
the scare yet. and to-day at noon they
were still looking for a physician.
Upon investigation we find that the
woman was from Monongah, and that
there has been no smallpox in- her
home for three weeks. But it you
don't want to get uuo tiouuie, juu
must not mention it to the clerks.

Last evening after going to press,
we investigated further the story- of
little Maggie Morris and the woman
from Murray. We found that a woman
by the name of Florence Swisher
lives there and upon talking to her
we find that she brought the little girl
to Fairmont and put her on the train.
She said that Mary Ott was to meet
her at the train at Benwood Junction.
The girl was to go to the home
of Charley Ott, a railroader at that
place. Upon being informed that no
one had met the girl and that she had
been sent to Wheeling,' she said that
she did not understand it, that they
were supposed to meet her. She
