There were many narrow escapes,
but only one life was reported lost.
A cloudburst north of Sioux City is
believed to have been the cause.
Leon Bethschider, aped twenty-one,
an employe of the ftevins Van com
pany, was precipitated into Perry
creek by the bank giving way. He
lout his life, being unable to swim in
the raging current.
It 1b estimated that in the densely
populated district along the creek 5it
homes are surrounded by water. The
plant of the Sioux City Traction com
pany was Hooded. No cars are run
Ding and thousands were compelled
to walk.
In the wholesale district near the
Missouri river front water from tho
creek ran along the streets and flood
ed cellnrs, causing heavy loss. At
Fourth and Water streets there was a
foot of water on the first floors of the
Mores.
The gas mains to the West Ride
Wire broken by the flood and thou
sands of people were forced to eat
OOld breakfasts.
Farmers up stream telephoned to
this city at midnight news of the
coming Hood. As quickly as possible
all available steam whistles here were
blown and residents in the threatene
districts were aroused by police and
firemen, but the flood came so rapidly
tfefit many persons had close calls.
The damage done in Sioux City is
(•need at more than $250,000. The
fltty's loss in damage to bridges will
f*n Into the thousands.

Hope to Make Faster Progress
on Tariff Bill
Washington, July 18.—All of the
conferees on the tariff bill were pres
ent for the first of the many sessions
that mtiBt be held to harmonize tin
differences between the house and the
senate. Before proceeding with the
bill a motion was adopted admitting
to the conferences the clerks of the
house and senate committees which
framed the measure originally. It is
customary in conferences relating to
tariff legislation to take up first the
amendments of a character not likely
to provoke serious conflict, but this
procedure has been varied. It was
agreed that many of the more impor
tant provisions should be submitted
to sub-conferees and other subjects
will go to members of the committees
on ways and means and finance who
were not named as conferees. Assist
ance will also be given the conferees
by members of the senate and house
who had no official part in framing
the bills in committees.
Of course, where important work
has been apportioned in the manner
suggested, it will be nocessary for the
entire conference committee to ap
prove the findings of the sub-confer
ees. Following the plan of dividing
the work the conferees were able to
plunge immediately into the consid
eration of the most vexatious ques
tions in the bill.

THINKS DEED PATRIOTIC
8layer of 8ir William Wyllle, Ar
raigned In Court at London, Defends
His Action by Reciting the Alleged
Wrongs His Country Has 3uffered
at the Hands of Qreat Britain and
Her Officials.
London, July 12.—Madarlal Dhina
grl, the Indian student who on the
ni^ht of July 1 shot and killed Sir
illiam Hutt Curzon Wyllie and Dr.
Cawas Lallcaca, was committed for
trial at the Old Bailey for murder.
The court proceedings lasted the
vhole day. The prosecution placed
i. ore the court documents contain
ing the prisoner's handwriting, which
eeem to show conclusively that the
crime was long premeditated and in
revenge for alleged wrongs to India.
The prisoner in a brief statement
said:
"I do not wish to say anything in
defense of myself, but simply to prove
the justice of my deed. As for myself
I do not think that an English law
court has any authority to arrest and
detain me in prison or to pass on me
a sentence of death. That is the rea
son why I have not employed counsel.
I maintain that if it Is patriotic for
Englishmen to fight against the Ger
mans, if they occupy this country,
then it is much more justifiable and
more patriotic in my case to fight
against the English. I hold that the
English people are responsible for the
murder of
Eighty Millions of My Countrymen
during the past fifty years and that
they are also responsible for taking
£100,000.000 every year from India to
this country. I also hold that thoy
are responsible for the hanging and
deportation of my patriotic country
men, who do just what the English
here are advising their countrymen
to do. If the Germans have got no
right to occupy this country then the
English have no right tu occupy India
and it is perfectly justifiable on our
part to kill any Englishman who is
polluting our sacred land."
After expressing surprise at the
"hyprocrisy with which the English
are posing as champions of the op
pressed In the Congo and In Russia"
Madarlal continued:
"In case this country is occupied by
the Germans and if an Englishman,
angered at seeing the Germans walk
ing about with the insolence of con
querors in the streets of London, kill?
one or two Germans and is upheld as
a patriot then certainly I am a patriot,
too, In working for the emancipation
of my motherland."
IN BANKRUPTCY PROCEEDINGS
Question of Thaw's Sanity Raised In
Federal Court.
Pittsburg, July 12.—Objections to
the discharge in bankruptcy of Harry
Kendall Thaw were filed in the United
States district court by J. G. Graham
of this city, who claims to be a cred
itor of the bankrupt. For the first
time during the bankruptcy proceed
ings the question of the sanity of
Thaw Is raised, It being alleged that
he was Insane at the time of the filing
of the petition and that he is insane
now. For this reason, it Is averred,
the petition should have never been
considered by the court.
Hitherto the United States court
has not had the question of the valid
Ity of the bankruptcy proceedings un
der consideration. Tho question of
sanity will probably now come up be
fore Judge Charles P. Orr for his de
cision.

AUTOS START IN
THE GLIDDEN TOUR
Contestants in Reliability tost
L*2VB
Detroit
Detroit, July 12.-With all the cere
moiiy that befits so notable an event
in automobile history the sixth annual
GUdden tour, known officially as "the
annual reliability contest of the Amer
ican Automobile association," was
started today from the Campius Mar
tius in this city. A large and enthusi
astic assemblage, headed by the city
officials, was on hand to see the forty
machines begin thelT tour of 2,637
miles.
The tour, which is primarily an en
durance test of the cars engaged, will
go by way of Chicago to Minneapolis,
to Omaha, thence to Denver and re
turn to Kansas City, where it will
disband. The distance must be cov
ered in fifteen days, exclusive of two
days' rest in Minneapolis and two in
Denver.
Owing to the rigid tests applied to
the machines the Glldden tour Is
really a contest of manufacturers.
They compete this year for three
trophies—the Glidden for touring cars,
the Hower for runabouts and road
sters and the Detroit for the minia
ture tonneau type of car. In addition
there are a few noncontestant partici
pants and the two official cars. An
exceedingly close watch is kept on
each contestant by all the others and
every flaw or default in the construc
tion or running of the car is noted
and penalized.
