The total Import of mutton and lamb Into the United Kingdom from all sources, in 1896, was 5,717,937 carcasses. Seeing that each steamer is able to make about two and a half trips In the year, it is evident that the sup ply of insulated space has more than overtaken the present requirements of the trade. There are sixteen frozen meet stores in London., which alto gether can hold for an Indefinite period over 1.000,000 carcasses of mutton; five in Liverpool to hold 325,000,. one in Manchester to hold 120,000, one in Car diff to hold 75,000, one in Glasgow to hold SO,OOO, one in Newcastle to hold * 16,000, one In Bristol to hold 24 000 These are being added to by the erec tion of cold storage warehouses in other large towns.

A* a Result of the Br«*k Mrs. Mathews and Her. Child Aro Drowned—Gr«t Dnmafc Done by the Flood. Denver, July 10.—A special from Ward, Colorado, to the Republican says: The reservoir of the Left Hand Ditch Company went out at noon to day, causing the death of two human beings and the destruction of consid erable property. The reservoir was located at Loft Hand park, four miles west of Ward, and its waters were used for the irri gation of many fine farms in the val ley around the mouth of Left Hand canon. The first Intimation that the banks of the reservoir bad succumbed to the great quantity of water stored there in, largely augmented by a heavy rainfall of the past twenty-four hours, was manifested to William Lowrie, an employe of the Dew Drop Company. Lowrie, on going to his dinner, sud denly saw a little silvery mountain stream that flows past the Dew Drop mill transformed Into a great rushing torrent. The first rush of the water came In billows six feet high and Increased in volume, forming a mountain of water at least twenty feet high. The higher water was preceded by a wall of rocks and other debris borne and tossed by the Irresistible force behind It as so much chaff before the wind. The roar of the oncoming flood of water and debris was thunderous in tone. Mr. Ixiwrie rushed so far as jmsslble In advance of the flood to warn the people In the little homes along the banks of the stream. The first family to hear his warning cry was that of Thomas Haudly, con sisting of himself, his son, Mr. and Mrs. Major and six children, all of whom had just sat down to dinner. It required but a minute for them all to rush up the precipitous hill behind tbelr residence, and a moment later their house, with Its entire effects, was borne on the crc«t of the wild waves and dashed to pieces. There was S3OO In cash on hand In the house, which was swept away with the other property. Near Hnndly’s house was the little home of James Mathew. Mrs. Mathew heard the warning and grabbing her little 5-year-old daughter. Myrtle, her only child, she rushed frantically out of the tottering house. She attempted to cross the then rapidly rising stream, and In an instant herself and child were engulfed in the mad flow of wa ter and quickly carried to their death. Their house followed them down stream for about thirty feet and grounded on some huge boulders. This is the only fatality so far known. The two new boilors recently re ceived by the Dew-Drop Company and standing near their stamp mill, were picked up and tossed about like toys on the crest of the current, and. car ried several hundred yards along. These boilers weighed eight tons each. The news of the dam's breaking was quickly carried to Ward, and hun dreds of men, women and children went to.the creek. The search for the bodies of Mrs. Mathew and child was at once taken up. The body of the drowned woman was found 800 yards below the point where she was picked up by tile water, lodged under a big pile of boulders and logs. The body was tnken out with great tllffl culty, divested of all clothing and badly bruised. Up to 8 o’clock this evening the body of the little girl had not been found. Mrs. Mathew was married in Den ver eight years ago to James Mathew, who survives her. She was 27 years of age, and has two married sisters. Mrs. Katie Woods and Mrs. Marie Ewing, living In Altman. Colorado, and a brother, Albert Smith, in Fort Lupton. Every bridge between the head of Hand creek and its mouth except the one at the foot of Ward gulch, is believed to have been washed out. The roads along the creek are com pletely destroyed In very many platvs. The earth is washed away around the foundation stones of the Dew Drop mill, and the water came within a few inehs of entering the electric power house at Camp Brainurd. A large numl>er of eastern visitors stood on the hill above the Ded Drop mill, awed by the magnificent specta cle of the death-dealing flood. The roads to the reservoir from Ward are completely washed out, and up to this hour it has been impossible to reach the site of the washed-out dam. The reservoir was a lake of almut thirty acres In area. The officers of the company cannot lx* reached from here. The president is Samuel Arbuthnut, at Altoona. Col orado. Tlie Colorado Telephone Com pany’s poles along the creek are washed out, breaking the communica tion between Ward ami Boulder. Terrible Hall Storm In Germany. York- July 9.-A dispatch to the world from Berlin says: A Stntt (tart dispatch received here brings the news of a deutrnctlvc hall storm which raged for hours In southern Wurtem burg. causing the death of thirteen [tersons and damage to crops amount ing to more than f4.00n.000. Such a meteorological phenomena in the hottest month of the year has never before been experienced in this part of the fatherland. Before the storm the weather was extremely aultry. Gradually the clouds began to darken and within a few minutes af ter was a sudden darkness fol ,l} ruehing torrents of raJn, which almost submerged the villages. Thirteen persons were killed out right and many were fatally injured. Running Short of Coal. Cleveland, Ohio, July 0.-The situa tion in this city over the coal strike is becoming desperate. The Cleveland rail roads are growing bolder in confiscat ing coal and those who depend upon a regular supply are becoming anxious The schooner W. B. Parker of Detroit has been delayed in Cleveland since Sunday owing to the action of the Erie railway. The boat was loading coal at the Erie Ship Building Company’s works. An Erie engine backed on the high trestle which loads to the car dumping machine and carried away thirty care of coal which were to have been loaded into the Parker. The boat Fill bqve to go light. Bevfttn>tjK*r fufttog Arms have near ly exhausted tlieir supply. The Pennsyl vanla and Ohio Fueling Company has suspended business altogether in Cleve land. There is consilerable fuel in tht uppor lake region and some of It may have to be brought down here. It is generally admitted now that the coal dealers and mine operators were very poorlv prepared for the strike. Unions coal begins coming from Cleveland in a few days the situation In the !ty will be serious. The light ing companies fear the city may be left in darkness. The director of public works is alarmed over his ability to keep the water supply g«) ’ig. The street railway companies fear a suspension of travel and manufacturing concern with orders to fill are fearful lest their plants will have to shut down for want of fuel. A SUCCESSFUL FINISH. The International Mining Congress Will Meet at Sail Lake Neat Ve .r Denver, July 10—The gold couven tion finished its labors yesterday and adjourned. In the morning the im portant matter of next year’s meeting place w'as voted upon, the ballot stand ing 100 for Salt Lake City to 47 for Omaha. President Prince appointed the fol lowing committee, under a resolution w'hlch was adopted on Thursday, 'for the puriH»se of endeavoring to secure the establishment of a Department of Mines and Milling: Lafe Pence, Colo rado, chairman; M. D. Herring, Texas; I. It. Hedges, Pennsylvania; William P. Beeliel, Nebraska, and E. V. Sum 1 ley of St. Paul, Minnesota. The com mittee will report next year. N. E. Ouyot of New Mexico offered a resolution, asking that the free coinage of silver at a ratio of 10 to 1 be en dorsed, and the motion was seconded by F. A. Reynolds, also of New Mexi co. It has been especially agreed that no political questions should be intro duced Into the convention, and when this objix-tlon was raised the author of the resolution declared it was a plain, simple proposition. Without further ado the question was put to vote nnd the resolution defeated by a most over whelming vote, the Colorado delega tion voting almost solidly against it. Indicating their sincerity in declaring that the convention should be non-par tisan. President Prince appointed the fol lowing committee to report at the next convention upon the advisability of adopting a code of mining laws to ap ply to the mining states: Delegates Moore of Colorado, Reynolds of New Mexico, Penrose of Arizona. Lyman of Utah and Todd of South Dakota: At the opening of the afternoon ses sion President Prince offered a resolu tion inviting all mineral producing states and territories to make exhibits of tlieir resources at the Trausmissis sippi International Exposition to be held In Omaha next year. The rules were suspended ami the resolution adopted. Charles J. Moore of Cripple Creek rend a paper on "The Cripple Creek Formation.” which proved very inter esting to the delegates. Mrs. Minnie A. Shinn of Leadville was the next speaker, giving an inter esting talk on tlie Leadville district, which she said was “the greatest sil ver mining camp on earth." Her re marks were confined to a history of the camp from the tinTe 11. A. W. Ta ilor opened the Little Pittsburg mine, in 1877, to the discovery of gold sul phides on Breeee hill in 1804. She gave the total mineral output of the LcndvUle district since 1877 as $220.- 000,000. Professor S. W. McCallle, assistant state gindogist of Georgia, contributed a paper on the gold fields of Georgia. After a lengthy discussion of the question tlie name of the permanent organization was decided to be the In ternational Mining Congress. Several other papers were read, after which the convention adjourned. MANY INVALID LAWS. Idaho Supreme Court Given a Derision Which May Require the Re-F. iartmrnt of Law*. Boise, Idaho, July 9.—The Supreme Court to-day rendered a decision in the county fee bill case that is the most far reaching ever emanating from that court. Tlie court holds that the fee bill passed by the last Legislature is invalid, and in addition practically de cides that nearly every bill passed by the last Legislature is unconstitution al. Not only that but it is a question whether the decision does not invali date the laws of other Legislatures since the organization of the state of Idaho. No one can tell at this time Just how far reaching the decision is. But it will without doubt create wide spread consternation throughout the state. The county fee law worked sweeping mimtions in the fees of county offices and it was attacked by the-latter on the general ground of un constitutionality. The Supreme Court upholds this contention, holding that the bill was unconstitutionally passed, both in the House and the Senate. Tin* court holds that any bill passed under an omnibus resolution suspending the provisions of the constitution requir ing separate readings in full, is invalid. Such suspension eau only be had in case of emergency, and then must ap ply only to the pending bill. Again the court holds that an amended bill going back to the House from which it originated must lie treated as an origi nal bill by the House. Both of these requirements were violated in the cast* of the fee bill. The decision was delivered late this afternoon and it is impossible to make examination of the records, to ascertain just how many laws of the last and previous legislatures conn* within the sweeping decision of th** law, but those familiar witli the course of legislation assert that fully two thirds of the laws passed at the last session are invalid under this decision. Lawyers are now looking the matter up. It Is safe to say that at least all the bills of the last legislature amend ed in the House opposite to that in which they originated are unconstitu tional, while a great many will le found to be void, owing to the general suspension of the provision of the con stitution respecting readings. It is possible the anti-gambling bill will be included in tlie category of invalid leg islation, while those best informed, as sert that every appropriation bill is un constitutional. If the decision is found to affect as many laws as seems now. it Is likely It will be necessarv to cot vene the Legislature in extraordinary session. State officials are dumb founded and their consternation is onljr equalled by their helplessness. AN IMMENSE MEETING. SAN FRANCISCO IS CROWDED; The Endeavor Convention Formally Open p ed-Twenty Thousand Already Preeent > ftn d More Coming—lreland Gete a Ban- i, ner. v n San Francisco, July B.—lt may now * be said that the Christian Endeavor a hosts have completed their conquest of this city. They have arrived in r such numbers during the last twenty- ( four hours as to permeate every quar- , ter of the city. All through the late , hours of the night and every hour this ( morning trains have arrived from the ( east, north and south, bearing thou- < sands of delegates and visitors. All the streets in the business dis- * trict of the city and in the neighbor- i hood of the different headquarters are i congested with the countless thousands of visitors. Everyone seems to be on the move, as if the cooling breezes from the Pacific are most welcome af ter a journey through the burning al kali plains. Rev. Francis E. Clark, father of the Christian Endeavor, made his first public appearance In California at the First Presbyterian Church in Oak land. Owing to the blockade in the railroad yards Mr. Clark could not cross the bay as soon as he expected, and yielded to tlie requests of the en thusiastic Oaklanders to hold ft meet ing In that city while-waiting to cross. 'The Endeavorers of Oak la ml turned out in thousands and gave tlie distin guished visitor a rousing reception. With the daylight this morning be gan the prayer meetings of the Chris tian Endeavorers. Services were held in all the principal churches of the city, the RubJect being the same in each—" Prayer for tlie convention.” Long before the hour appointed for the opening of the convention eveTy seat in tlie vast pavilion, which ac commodates over 10,000 people, was oc cupied, women pmlominating, and from the stage the sight was one never to be forgotten. Seldom has an audi ence equal in numbers and appearance been assembled within tlie walls of a building 1n California. After the addresses of welcome nnd responses came an event that created great enthusiasm. 'Phis was the awarding of the badge banner for the greatest proportionate increase in the numlier of societies during the last twelve months, which has been in pos session of Scotland during the past year. It was won by Ireland, and was presented in behalf of the united so ciety by Rev. Charles A. Dickinson of Boston. It was a long time before the applause subsided after the victory of tlie Emerald Isle was announced. The Junior badge banner given for the greatest proportionate increase in number of societies during the last twelve months was awardtta to Spain and was presented by W. H. Vogler of Indianapolis in a neat address. It had been in the possession of Mexico. After singing by the monster choir the Mechanics' pavilion meeting then adjourned until evening. The crowd at Woodward’s pavilion was almost as large as that in the Me chanics’ pavilion, although it Is fur ther from the center of the city. Rev. Howard B. Grose of Boston presided. A welcome by the choir preceded the >»votional exercises conducted by Rev. Soo Noo Nam Art, an Oriental cler gyman of this city. Vice Chairman J. 8. Webster delivered the welcome of the committee of ’97. Rev. J. K. Mc- Lean of Oakland that of the Golden Gate pastors, and Mayor Phelan spoke in behalf of the city, the response be ing made by Rev. Silas Mead of Ad elaide, South Australia. Secretary Baer’s report was then read as follows: In 1881 there was one society and fifty-seven members. In 1897 there are 50.780 societies and a total member ship of 3,000,000. Of the states hav ing more than 1.000 local societies. Pennsylvania leads, with 3,443. New York has 3.049.

The Gold Convention Will Be of Decided Benefit. Denver, July 9.—The second day’s proceedings of the International Gold Mining Convention were most interest ing and included the reading of several very excellent papers pertaining to the mining Industry. The interest in the con vention had increased most materially, as was evidenced by the large attend ance at both the morning and after noon sessions. It .was the desire of ev ery delegate present to accomplish as much in the time allotted for the con vention as was possible and but little or no time was wasted, the finishing of one subject being immediately follow ed by the taking up of the next. There is every promise that the con vention will accomplish several impor tant things and should the future see the establishment of a department of mines and mining as an addition to the executive department of the gov ernment of the United States much will he due to the labors of the convention, which is urgng most strongly this movement. And the plan seems to have met with the unanimous favor of the delegates, the greatest encouragement being given the question when called before the assembly. A resolution en dorsing the idea was adopted on the first day of the col vention and a com mittee will to-day draft a memorial to Congress urging the creation of such a department. Another important step in the ad vancement of the mining industry was given birth in the convention by tlie in troduction of a resolution providing for the codifying and simplifyng of the mining laws of the United States. The great need of a concise compilation of I all the laws pertaining to the interests • of mining lias long been felt, but this is i the first opportunity that a convention of mining men has had to urge the im • portanee and necessity of such a stop. • In all probability a r«*solution will be - sent to Congress from tlie convention - asking that something be don** toward 1 arranging the laws affecting this most r important industry. Another resolution brought before the » convention yesterday lias reference to i the conflicting of tith-s arising out of tlie old Spanish land grants which in 1 a measure hinder the giving of a clear 1 title to most valuable mining property [» in the Western states. [> The convention found another matter p that was of great interest to mining and t the Importance of the matter was rec . ognized to the extent of suspending the t rules in order to bring the matter be s fore the convention at onee. This was _ in reference to the proposed taxation of f transfers of mining stock as provided for by the tariff bill passed by the Sen f ate. A resolution petitioning against such taxation was speedily adopted and r forwarded by telegraph to Washington n last night. t Prof. Edmund B. Kirby of Denver ,) read a paper on the “Treatment of Low r Grade Ores by Concentration.” He was t followed by Vice President Julian Dern > of the Mercur district of Utah, who ad r dressed the convention upon the mining u districts of Utah. Delegate Bignell of Nebraska follow n ed with a short paper on the treatment of low grade ores by a compressed air process, which he said was valuable in . places where water was not obtain aide, and where the ore was not of suf e Helent value to warrant Its shipment. r To-day will mark tlie dosing of the convention and everything bids fair r for a propitious ending. The delegates f one nnd all express themselves as high ly pleased with tlie progress thus far jj obtained. Everything possible Is being p done to make tlie stay of the visitors a pleasant one and at the same time im i. part to them stores of information con cerning Colorado’s mining. The women , delegates accorded the men. and their wives as well, a reception at the Brown j hotel last night that was fln excellent £ indication of the hospitality and friend . ly feeling that is always held out to . the stranger hy Colorado’s women. To day. through the courtesy of the Trnm j way Company, special cars will be run . over twenty-five miles, of the scenic t lines in and about Denver. An excur . sion around the “Horn” and another to _ Cripplo Creek has been arranged and . the citizens of these districts have made prepa rat ions for the entertain . ment of the visiting delegates. An invi . tatlon lias also been extended to the convention to visit Salt Lake City upon [ the occasion of the Trans-Mississippi . Convention, which convenes there Julv ; 14 to 18. Fatal Fire in Leadville. ■ Leadville, Colo.. July B.—A eonflagra 1 tion occurred at the Big Four property, on the slope of Johnny Hill, at 6 o’clock ■ this morning, in which .Tames Galla gher lost his life and property was dam : aged to the extent of about SB,OOO tc . SIO,OOO. Just how the fire started is not a certainty, but the supposition is that it ignited from a candle. Tlie flames originated in what is known as th* “drying room.” where the men change their clothes when going and coming 1 from work. The night force left be tween 3 and 4, and the supposition is that one of the men left a candle burn ing. which in some manner set fire to 1 the building. The fire, once started spread with great rapidity and the buildings being very dry the stuff burn ed like paper. Rio Grande Western’* Record.
