Awful Work of the Flood at Other Points.
Eight Persons Perish at Soearro
sad Fifty Buildings
Are Destroyed.
Casper. W'yo., Aug. 1. A. terrible
cloudburst occurred south of this city
on Cuaper nuHintaln. at the head of
Garden creek, last night.
The creek is about sevftx miles long
from mouth to source, and la lined with
campers. Near the he d of the creek
Is a summer tfsort. frequenttd by local
picnio parties ad l credited with being
one of tho most beautiful spots In cen
tral Wyoming.
The nret thlivg the flood reached wjs
the pleasure reaort at the head of Gar
den creek. At this point all tha build
ings were crushed and swept away and
the original site of the hotel at this
point to burltd beneath debris tworxy
or more feet Utp.
From here the water followed the
course of the creek aavd demolished ev
erything In Ha path. Judging from
waiter mark volume of water forty
feet high and thirty rods wUle must
have passed a narrow detl'.-e abtut two
mlk-s from the mountain proper.
Without warnlr. this great Hood of
water In its ruste down the side of tlw
mountain found many camper up ad
kr.Ma the creek eltlwr sUeplng or Juet
ready to retire for the night.
Fate of Nowby's Fmnily.
8. Newby and his family had retired
for the night, when all at once they
were surrounded with water and a race
for life commenced. Newby says that
he heard his wife scream for help; he
grabbed for her, but missed, and in
the next second he was being carried
on by a great rush of water. That was
the last he saw of his wife and baby.
Newby grabbed the limbs of a floating
tree and after floating about forty rods
was thrown on a bank. Mrs. Newby
was found this morning beneath a pile
of debris twenty feet high. The boy
has not been found.
Near the Newby camp was camped
Samuel Harlson, lately of Alliance,
Neb. Hacrlson's two children were
caught In the flood and carried away
by the mad waters. The bodies of the
children were recovered this morning.
Some idea of the force of tha torrent
can be formed from the fact that In
the first two mile of Its course five
ledges of rock are to be found. These
ledges are twenty-five feet high. In
the first one are boulders torn from the
mountain side that will weigh fifty
tons. These two feet In diameter were
torn -op and carried down the stream.
The tents and wagon of all the camp
ers up and down the creek were de
frayed and st least fifty persons es
caped with nothing but their sleeping
garment. Food and clothing Is being
sent to the unfortunates by the citizens
of Casper today.
Eight Person Perish.
Socorro, N. 'M., Aug. 1. The excite
ment attendant upon the flood Is over.
The list of dead Is eight, six of whom
are the Duran family, and the other
two, children that were rescued from
the flood awd died yeeterduy. Fifty
buildings In the city hive been warned
away and contents destroyed. About
100 buildings are more or less daimagftf,
and a large portion of the contorts
damaged and destroyed. To these
lozses 'must he added the total destruc
tion of gardens and vineyards, and
these looses fall upon the poorer class
of people.
The Magdafena branch of the Sunta
Fe railway Is washed away for about
five miles, and their loos will run Into
the thousands. The water washed niway
the main track Jut b!w the dpot
yard and covered the tracks ta the
yards about four Inches deep. The
lower part of Manzanare aivcnue la a
total wreck, bridges and sidewalks be
ing wasted away. The waiter covered
the whole valley from (the vkrlnHy of
the Windsor hotel to the depot and for
several miles above and below the city.
The Array, that did the damage,
comes Into the city at the southwest
corner from the mountains on the road
to MajrdaW-na, jut as It strikes the
city It divided Into two channels, one
going down Spring street to the river
bottom and the otJier to the west,
emptying to the north of the city and
swinging around passes to east of the
city, mtaailng Its waters with the one
coming down Spring street. The floud
came In two big waves, one ftllii.-.K the
Arrays, over bank full and the Oliver
pouring out over every street In the

They See Signs of Success for the
More Progress by the Rebels la Five
Months Now Than In Five Years in
the Former I'prlsing-Spanlsh
Show Signs of Weakness.
Now York. Aug. l.-.WMh the enthu
siasm which Is the natural Inheritance
of those Yn whose veins flow the blood
of tho Latin race, ithe Cubans In New
York were still Inclined today to cele
brate the landing of the patriots In the
ptwlnce of Santa Clara, new of whoh
they received Tuesday.
It would be difficult now to find a
Cuban In this city who does not be
lieve that the revolutkmlnts will ulti
mately win. This belief U t-aaod not
ln!y uion the success which atU"nld
the latent expedition, ai.vdi upon the
nim,ber and con'JItlon of the revolu
tionary troops, but alfo upon the fact
tihat the first Sparolsh reserve -has been
called out. The Cuib..ini reason that,
If there were available regular troops,
tho reserves wouM not now be called
for. Ths lust continued for tern
years, and the reserves were not called
for until the war was more than, half
over. During the Ave months that tho
present' revolt has conlttaned, the Cu
bans, It la eald, have made as great
progress as they did In Ithe flrs five
years of the revolution of 1SG8.
Rensls Stronger Than Ever.
At no time during the former struggle
were the Cubans as numerically strong
as they are today. The largest number
of men which they had In the field at
any one tlnfe during that conflict was
12.000. and these were poorly armed.
There are said to be 25,000 patriots In
the field today.
If the city of Havana Is considered a
province, there are six provinces In
Cuba. Of these the Spanish forces are
In possession of the three most west
erly ones Plnar del Rio, Havana and
Matanzas. The central provinces of
Santa Clara and Puerto Principe, es
pecially the latter, are In almost com
plete possession of the Cubans. Santi
ago de Cuba, the extreme eastern prov
ince. Is the scene of the most active hos
tilities. It Is in that province where
Captain General Campos has his head
quarters. In all the territory occupied
by the Spaniards there are only about
125,000 troops, as compared with the
250,000 men General Campos had under
him during the last revolt.
Then It is asserted that the pre
judices of the Inhabitants of the Island
favor the success of revolt. It Is In only
the three western provinces that there
Is anything like loyalty to the Spanish,
and even In those, U Is said, if there
were experienced leaders tft go there.
It would be only a short time before
they would be In open revolt. The peo
ple of Santa Clara, the center of the
wealth and the sugar plantations, and
of Puerto Principe are said to be heart
and soul with the revolutionists.

ment ot liabilities Is given.
President Burrows, of the unfortu

the alleged fact that the banker's dol

value of the manufacturer's dollar has
decreased, and ns a consequence de

It Impossible for him to meet liabilities.

In Plsin English Senator Hayes Predicts
the Defeat of Senator Gorman and
Uls Followers and the lcmo
cratlo Party of the State.
Baltimore, Aug. 1. The sensational
Interview between United States Sena
tor Gorman and State Senator Hayes,
which took place Just before the state
Democratic convention met, and which
was briefly outlined In these despatches
yesterday, has excited wide Interest and
has all the city politicians agog.
The News, a Democratic afternoon
paper, today prints what Is claimed to
be an accurate report of the stormy
Hcpslon. According to the report, Mr.
Gorman sent forOdr. Hayes, and asked
him, in view of the grave crisis which
confronted the Democratic party In
Maryland, to withdraw from the gub
ernalional contest. As a reason for his
request Mr. Gorman stated that "Free"
Rasln, the Baltimore leader, was un
alterably opposed to him (Hayes), and
without Rasln's votes nothing could
be accomplished In the way of defeating
the nominee of the Cleveland Demo
crats, Judge Fisher.
Senator Hayes Is quoted em replying
to tS.'irator Gorman, in fheso words:
"Do you think you can fool the pe!e
Into bellwlrsj this, Arthur Common?
Do you think that they wtll believe for
a momcmt that you could not do as you
wlched wMh this convention, and have
had me or any oth-r tmm nominated,
as well as John H. Hurst, who haa al
ways been against the k?eue on which
we have fought and won this cam
paign? Do you imagine for u moment
that atvy one will believe that you have
been doing anything but deceiving
them all the tkme? Why. you know
that at lta"t 4gWt of the city delegates
will leave Rasln tind vote as you order.
You U-.ow this 4 all true, and yet you
bow to RaS'ln awl allow him to sell the
nomination and. defy the popular will.
You repudiate the Issue on whhh you
have won an'J expect to delude the pen
pie agi'ln, as you have deluded them
btifore. Yeu will nOl 4e warned. You
have made mistakes before, ai'.J have
recovered from their effects. From rhls
you can siever recover. You will drag
down the party and 'bring tt to defeat
by your trachery. The party can re
cover from ll defeat, but you inever
Gonnau Becomes Livid.
Here Senator Gorman, who toad be
come livid with rage and pale in turns,
attempted to Interrupt Jdr. Hayes, but
the lai;tr dn tinned :
"No, I will hear nothing from you. I
would believe nothing you could say,
even If you swore to it. Arthur Gor
man. I have stood up for you and de
fended you for years, when you were
attacked. I am one of the few men
who have always believed you to be
true. When some of my friends even
hinted at possible treachery on your
part I have spurned the very thought
and would not believe It. Now I know
that no deceit, treachery or baseness
is too great for you. Tou have crowned
at last a long career of double dealing,
treachery and falsehood by this act of
infamy. By your course today you will
bury yourself beyond resurrection. I
am only sorry that you will bury the
party with you. But the party can live,
while you, overcome by your treachery
and falsehood, will meet with the fate
you deserve. I am no tool, no puppet
to be fooled and trifled with, and I
want nothing more to do with such a
man as you.
"You have posed as hi favor of re
assessment and have used me for your
base purposes. If you had given me a
few more hours to expose your nefar
ious schemes I should have let the peo
ple of Maryland know of your decep
tion. I despise your methods, and do
not fear you or your henchmen. I nm
determined that If I can prevent It that
your grip on the Democratic party shall
end with your nomination of Hurst."
Mr. Hayes Is said to have shaken his
fist at Senator Gorman, ns he stalked
rrom the room saying: "We this day
part forever, and my life's work shall
be to help dethrone you from the dic
tatorship now held by you over the
