IS STRICKEN AGAIN
TEXAS VISITED BY A TERRIFIC
FLOOD WITH LOSS OF LIFE.
CIoBdbnrt\ Rcinlti in a Flood and
a Larse Amount of Property la
Dntrored Forty Italians Are
Drowned in One Place and All
the Ranches iliramped Wire
Communication Is Cut OS and
Authentic Information Cannot Be
Obtained—One Town Surrounded
by Water.
Dallas. Tex., Sept. 25.-»A. cloudburst
In the Neuces river country, ninety
miles west of the Southern Pacific road,
resulting in a terrific flood and much
loss of life is reported. Meager details
have, been received, but it is claimed
that from* thirty to forty Italians em
ployed on the sheep ranches were
(frowned andd all the ranches were
swamped. Many flocks of sheep have
been lost and a large amount of prop
erty destroyed. From the most reliable
Information obtainable last night ex
tensive storm damage has been in
flicted on the upper Colorado and the
Chonco river valleys, particularly at
and near Brownwood, Blanket and San
Angelo. Wire' communication with all
these places are cut off and the rail
road lines damaged so that no trains
can reach them. Reports indicate that
the heaviest damage is at Sap Angelo,
although many bridges in Brownwood
have teen
Wrecked or Injured.
It is also feared many livfes have been
lost. The last telegram sent but from
Brownwood was at about 10 a. m. yes
terday, and stated that the town was
flooded and entirely surrounded by
water and that people and goods were
being removed to places of safety in
rowboats and rafts. Bulletins from
Temple state that the tracks of the
Gulf, Colorado & Santa-Fe railroad are
under water to the depth of fifteen
feet south of Brownwood, and that
nothing can be heard from places up
the line. The rain is pouring down and
streams still rising. The country dis
tricts cannot be heard from. It is
raining hard for approximately 100
miles in all directions from Brown
wood, and as the streams in that part
of Texas are now very treacherous In
the matter of sudden rises, a disaster
is feared.

commerce, creating labor councils to
settle disputes between labor and cap
ital. The councils are to consist of an
equal number of workmen and em
ployers, but the workmen must belong
to the recognized labor unions. This
clause is likely to create difficulties, as
the majority of French laborers do not
belong to unions.

Waterville, Minn., Sept*. 26. The
town of Morristown, just east of this
city on the Minneapolis & St. Louis
railroad, was visited by a cyclone about
6:30 yesterday afternoon. Seven people
were killed outright and many wound-
The storm struck the town from tlie
south, blew down a barn on the out
skirts of town, passed up the
street, taking everything before it. A
barn in the center of the town was
lifted from its foundation and swept
away, leaving three horses intheir
stalls unharmed. The brick

sa,0°
owned by Paul Gattske was completely
demolished and Henrjr Wait, a resident
of Morristown, and F. Pitman, a farm
er who lives a few miles south of this
place, were killed in the saloon where
they had gone to take refuge from the
storm. The killed are:
NELSON, boy living on a farm
a few miles south of Morristown.
The latter is the only casualty report
ed from any of the surrounding coun
try, and the loss to- property is not
thought to be great to the farmers.
Part of the town was destroyed by
flre a short time ago and the storm
fortunately struck that section mostly,
otherwise the loss to property and life
would have been much greater.
The seriously wounded so far as
known are Paul Gattske, proprietor of
the saloon -Frank Wilder, porter,
white, and a boy named Pitman.
The doctors oY Waseca, Faribault and
this citv have been called to the scene
of the disaster. Of the seven people
killed, Six were killed in the saloon,
there being eleven people in jt at the
time it was struck.

wrecked, and from which the bodies
of eight men were taken. The report

done to property there.

Olivia, Minn., Sept. 26.—The county
commissioners of Renville county met

removal of the county seat from Bea
ver Falls to Olivia. This petition was
filed Sept. 3, and is the largest ever se
oured, containing 3,365 names, or over
SO per cent of the voters of Renville
county. There have been six or seven
contests for removal prior to this one,
but though the groat majority of the
people have desired the removal, some
technical error has prevented it in
each case. Beaver Falls was made the
county seat about thirty years ago.
Little improvement has been made
sln'ce that time, as there is no railroad
and no hotel accommodations.
Boy Lost In the Woods.

rain occurred yesterday followed by a
genuine cloudburst at 6 o'clock. This
will delay all threshing for a full week.
Heavy pelting rains are knocking
millions of flax pods on the ground,

GERMAN PROPOSALS
EUROPEAN POWERS WANT HER TO
ABANDON THEM.
Russia Practically Disapproves the
Proposal of Germany by Suggest
ing That Peace Negotiations Be
Opened First and the Punishment
of the Instigators of the Outrages
Be Made the First Subject of Dis
cussion—Prince Tuan's Ascen
^dency Creates a Very Grave
Danger.
London, Sept. 26.—A semi-official an
nouncement has been issued in St.
Petersburg that the European cobinets
are engaged in an endeavor to induce
Germany to abandon her demand for a
surrender of the instigators of the anti
foreign outrages as a preliminary to
peace negotiations.
The Vienna" correspondent of the
Standard states that Russia's reply to
the German note is friendly, but al
though it appears to consent to Ger
many's proposal it practically disap
proves by asking whether it would not
be best to open peace negotiations first
and to make the punishment of the in
stigators of the outrages the first sub
ject of discussion.
According to the Berlin correspon
dent of the Daily Express Germany
Will Make a New Proposal,
namely, that the great powers form an
international court to try the Chinese
officials accused of complicity in the
outrages.
The Morning Post has the following^
from its Shanghai correspondents dated
yesterday: "The Russians reently or
ganized an expedition toward Mukden,
which has already reached Liao Yank,
about' midway between Niu Cliwang,
and Mukden. It will probably enooun-'
ter opposition. Prince Tuan's ascen
dancy creates a very grave danger.
The only hope for foreigners is that
the pro-foreign viceroy of Nankin has
not yet been removed. Tuan's emis
saries are working hard to get him out
of the way by murder or suicide."
The bulk of the continental press
Is Still Discussing
America's reply, which is generally re
garded as encouraging Li Hung Chang
to delay negotiations. Gen. Gribsky,
military governor of Amur, has pub
lished elaborate regulations placing all
the regions along the Amur river now
occupied by the Russians entirely un
der Russian law and authority. The
Chinese are forbidden to return to the
/eft bank of the stream. He also Is
sued a proclamation declaring the an
nexation of Manchuria to be a punish
ment for the attack upon Rlagoves
tchensk, and exhorting the inhabitants
hereafter to respect Russia's power
and to live in peace and quietness on
their fields.
A semi-official communication to the
Cologne Gazette disavowing any de
sire on the part of Germany to
Execute the Iiistljsatoi-H
of the outrages on the strength of the.
testimony of the foreign missionaries,
and says: "The international court of
justice would look upon the question of
their guilt and would pronounce sen
tence. To look' on with complacency
while a mockery of justice, such as the
United States demands was being en
acted, wouid mean a renewal of the
massacres."
Commenting upon the reproaches
which the Cologne Gazette and other
German papers have leveled against
the United States, the Berlin corres
pondent of the Times says: "What
ever may be thought of the attitude of
the United States, it hardly seems wise
from a diplomatic point of view to
hurl these taunts at another nation
which- experience has shown is by no
means in (the habit of pocketing or
forgetting such attentions."
