Accident in a Sawmill.
A heartrending accident occurred at
the Big Creek Lumber Company's mill
at at Pollock, Saturday afternoon at 1:;30
t- o'clock. Henry Taningham, aged
2d twenty-twa years, an employee of the
te company, was instantly killed. His
x. post of duty was on the log deck, roll
)y ing logs down into position to be
ug placed on the carriage. One of the
Ie logs was difficult to move, so he placed
a book partly in the log and swung
back to turn it. The hook slipped
and he fell over three loge into th.
4 carriage track. As the carriage was
3 coming back with great rapidity tht:
Sesawyer was unable to stop it and it
k ran over Taningham, crushing the
n upper part of his body. Seine time
1e ago he was knocked from the elevator
1e and fell, thirty-five feet, and was twice
t. before thrown in the same p?.ce whore
a he met his death, but the sawyer's
rapid actions saved his life. HIe was )
worthy young man and the only r !:
port of his sister and widowed mother
Fatality at. Cincinnati.
The first fatality attending the high
water ocourred at 4:15 o'clock on
Saturday afternoon at Cincinnati.
Three of the floors of the five story
stone front warehouse on Front street,
near Vine, owned by Hinkle, Wilson &
Kreis, wholesale grocers, caved in at
that hour. The building is surround
ed with several feet of water. A.out
1,000 barrels of sugar went down with
the wreck, which carried with it several
men. All of the front and rear walls
and part of. the side walls are still st
standing. Eleven men were at work p:
in the building but all escaped serious
injury by jumping from windows into
tbe water, except Jabob Schmalbaoh,
aged 50, of Covington, Ky., who is
missing and was doubtlessly crushed
to death. Mr. Coleman, another of the
men, was struck on the head by a fall
ing joist. Mr. Wilson one of the pro
prietors, was in the front of the build
ing when the callapse came and was
thrown into the cellar. Hie was not
struck by any of the debris and suc
ceeded in escaping. The high water
doubtless weakened the foundations of
the building. The lose is about $55,000.
A Cuban Conference.
An important conference of the
Cuban leaders in this country will be
held within a few days after the in
auguration of President McKinley, for
the purpose of formulating a policy to
be conducted toward the new adminis
tration with reference to its dealings
with Ouban affairs. It is the intention
of the promoters that there shall be
present delegates from Chicago and
other points west, from Boston, New
York, Washington, and Florida towns.
Minister Estrada Palma will be present
and preside over the proceedings.
Among the other prominent Cubans
who will give advice and take part in
the conferance are Dr. John Guiteras
of Philadelphia; Gonzalo de Queslds,
charg8 d'affairs of the Ccban legation
at Washington, and CGen. Julio San
guilly a few days ago released at Ha
vana. The date of the conference has
not as yet been fixed, nor has the place
of meeting been decided upon. It is
likely that it will be held in Philadel
phia.
Transvaal Inquiry.
The inqury of the parliamentary
committee into the Transvaal was re
sumed Tuesday, in Westminister hall
London. Tie witness, Col. Rhodes, re
iterated again that he assisted in the
raid and revolution in the Transvaal,
but he added the next time he would do
so legally. Col. Rhodes was then asked
why he had not accepted the respon
sibility of coming to Dr. Jameson's
asesistance during the latter's trial, and
be replied that his appearance would
not have benefitted Jameson, becanse
he would have been obliged to say that
he did not authorize the raid. "I sent
