LOEB, Manager. april 23-d;im Denvto, Col., June 3 A cattle round-up camp ou Frenchman creek, Nebraska, just over the Colorado line, was entirely de stroyed last Wednesday by a flood, and eloven cowboys belonging in Colorado and Nebraska were drowned. The flood was caused by a cloud-burst on the creek, which runs through southwest Nebraska and northeastern Colorado. The party, which consisted of Charles Hall, W. J. Pel ton, William Carson, William Fergu n, Ixu Witherbee, John Smith, Fat rick Lynch, Robert Fowler, Robert R Eddy, and J. l.iudsey, with a rouud-up camp outfit from district No. 10, of Colorado, arrived at Frenchman creek Wednesday. Meeting other parties they joined forces and camped near "Cooper Camp." About two hours after an awful rush of the waters in French man creek occurcJ, but was unnoticed. It gathered strength and violence and rose rap idly until shortly after miduight whou the cli.u.l burst occured. This swelled the little creek to a mighty torrent, which burst over the bauks and came rushing dowu on the cowboys' camp in a wave which swept away wagons, animals, and men. The camp at once became a sceue of indescribable ter ror, the shouts for holp from the tents, the neighing of drowning horses, and the cries of Hiving cattle filling the air. To increase the terror of the moment rain began to fall in torrents, accompanied by thunder and light ning, making the night one of fearful horror. Two camps near the one upon which such destruction was wrought had narrow escapes from the flood. Although the water came into the camps they were too far from the creek to be seriously damaged. When daylight came the banks of the steam were seen to be strewn for miles with fragments of wagons, tents, tent-poles, and blaukets, while here and there was a body, the face depicting the terrible agony under gone iu the struggle for life. Five bodies were found some distance down the creek. They were those of William Ferguson, Will iam Carson, Charlos Hall, W. J. Peltou, and one which has not yet been recognized. Thi six who are still missing, notwithstanding i continued search has been made up to the present time, are J. LI miser, Lon Wither bee, John Smith, Robert Fowler and Patrick Lynch. The fall of the water where the cloud-bnrst occurred tore great holes in the ground, car ried down tons of soil and rock to the creek, and left no chance of escape to the men in the camp, which stood directly iu the path of the slide. The flood came with such rapidity that the men in the other camps do not know whether the camp was destroyed by the torrent from the clood or whether the water emptied inself into the creek, swelhug it, and thus causing the flood. Waco, Tex., June S. Information is re ceived from Shackelford county that Friday night last a huge water-spout fell, covering several hundred acres, and doing great dam age. One ranchman lost 860 sheep out of a Hock of 900. On the same day a water-spout burst near Cisco, at the head of Battle creek, aud caused the creek to overflow in a few minutes, covering the bottom lands, aud drowning some cattle, and washing every thing before it (Several farms were ruined, but no lives were lost ground of ill health, stating that bis strength ', not equal to the excite.nent and harass ing c ares of a campaign. Governor Cleveland's mo3t iutimata friends this g.'iitieuiiin states, say that he is not in the race. Mr. liana recognizes this fact and his paperexpi'esses its regrets. Cleveland is not favored by Tilden, who thinks he cau not carry New York, because John Kelly and his friends are bitterly opposed to him. The probabilities are, in his opinion, that Flower will have the delegation, and Mr. Tilden Iwing out of the way by his own declination, blower will bo a fonniJabla candidate at Chicago. Washington Citv, June 2. The Wash ington Post has the following editorial: "The Democratic voters ot the United States are aiitiliod to know thut Samuel J. Tilden is t an aspirant far presidential honors at their hands. Ho will not 1 a candidate b-'fore tie Cnie:io convention, and will not accept the nomination under any circum- .tnnces. 7 he convention will meet to de liberate and to select tho strongest mau, and whether this man is Bayard, Cleveland, Field, Morrison, McDonald or Carlisle, it is for the convention to determine." Per contra tho following is iriven: Con gressman Broadhead aud Senator Wise have returned from New York, where they called on Mr. Tildeu at his country home on Satur day. They found him in appar ently quite good health. Ho welcomed them warmly, remarked to Col. Broadhead that ho (liroadhead) had grown ?oiiiewhat heavier since he last met him six years ago. He showed thorn aln.nt over his place with a grout deal of pleasure, apiear- lug to be in quite vigorous health. pt as to his voice, which is Hiite weak. Political subjects were talked of iu a general way only, but whilo nothing was said to indicate directly whether Tilden would or would not lie a candidate, the visitors came away with the firm belief that he would accept if the nomination were ten dered him. RIDDELL'S STATEMENT. Mclntire & Co., I' Say the IHrv tor are KcMnoimible lor I'eiiu Bank Trouble.. Pittsburg, June 3. Prosident RM.lt'11, uf the I Vim bank, has made a statement tho su I stance of which is thut the batik was iu ;.kh1 conditio!! in llibl, when he was taken sick. 1 Miring his illness I lie first overdraft uf ijwiw,000 was matlen ith the consent of the directors. Kiddell went to Now York to on deavor to get parlies to "bull" the oil market and make good the shortage, but was misutxvssful. He says tiie directors borrowed more money from the bank tiian the surplus aud capital amounted to. Congressman Hopkins, A. Hutchinson, R. Kounedy, S. Severance, and others interested in the bank, heavily en gaged in oil speculation. The bogus firms of v ilson dc la, Hill tNi Co., eta, were com posed of M. McMullen, oil broker, and the Poim Ittink. Ho assorts that the directors used the hank's money in risks despite his protest. The statement, if true, shows that the directors are responsible for the condi tion of the bank. Kiddoll is very low.

Jan--41jr One of the Victims of the Late Balti more Disaster. Baltimore, Juue a. The body of Jaine? Kelly, one of the clerks who was killed in the fall of the Hooper building on Friday, has been unearthed. It was conclusively nr.iven by physicians that Kelly was killed by firemen who were tearing down the walls of the ruined building, and not by the original disaster. The body was found with one foot crushed beneath the closed door of tbe heavy iron safe. Aero his chest was an enormous beam, which had remained in position on an upper floor until twenty hours after the disaster. This beam the ilrenien dislodged in tearing down the ruins aud it fell with a terrible crash. It was this that caused Kelly's death, beyond all doubt, as the doctors are positive that he did not sustain any original injuries save the crushing of bis foot in the safe door. A singular fact in connection with the case if that a sister of Kelly's was on the scene ol the disaster imploring the firemen to make haste iu rescuing her brother. She was wild with grief, aud stated positively that she was sure her brother was alive in the ruins. Her singular premonition proved to be correct. There is do doubt now that seven men were killed by the wreck. Presidential Alraiit Receiving Ken uf I he Situation at Culms". Washington City, June .

Ad April Fool Trick liscovered Three very nice ilowu town dudes thinking it rutliiT too expensive to buy button hole bouquets every time they went mashing, detci mined to raise their own. A. down town gentleman, who likes to encourege voting men, kindly gave them some tube rose bulbs. It was the first of April, but the dudes forgot it, or perhaps they would have examined their bulbs more carefully. As it was, how ever, they planted and carefully tended them until a few days ago, when they dis covered to their disgust and the neigh bors' amusement, that their supposed lube rose bulbs were garlick bulbs. The way the flower pots flew around the back yaid made folks think that another cyclone had struck the town. The gentleman w ears a sore head, and the poor dudes are minus bouquets. Biver Kiplete.

The June rise will amount to nothing. There was a strike instituted on the steamer St. Paul while near Hannibal on Sunday. The bauds refused lo work with out an increase of wages, but on the promise of C'apt. Thompson that their demands would be acceeded to, they re' mained on duty, and no violence was re sorted to. Police Court Harry Isrown and James Wilson are not yet of age, but they are old enough to know how to behave if they want to. But Ihey didn't chose lo act iu an orderly manner yesterday, and besides using naughty language, they threw stones around in a promiscuous manner. Officer Mctsch landed them before Cropper, who gave them $5 each. Pat Rooney, who was taking a pleasure ride in J. D. Stringer's boat Saturday night, without the permission of that gentleman. was taken before the police magistrate yesterday, who put him under f 100 bonds for trial. Pat decided to acknowledge the corn, and he went before Judire Adams and plead guilty. He was fined $10 and costs, and the Judge agreed to give him twenty days in which to scrape together enough lucre to liquidate his debt to the county. If Pat does not skirmish around pretty lively and earn the money, iu the time stipulated, he will be put into the county bastile to dream the idle hours away, in pounding stone or some other exhileratitig exercise.
