SONOHA, CaL, May 17.—The snow, rain aud wind storm that prevailed in the Sierra Nevada foothills during Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday •was most fatal to sheep. The road from Sonora up to Strawberry Station, a distance of :>2 miles, is lined with dead sheep. The. storm was unusually severe for this time ot the year, and the shocp having been sheared were in au unfit condition to meet the wintry blasts. In the ravines and beside the bowlders along 1 the road the dead iwimals are piled two and three deep, up to this date some 40,000 sheep have entered this country en route for the mountain ranjres, and as all of them were cautfht in the storm It is a low estimate to say that one-third of them have perished. FKKBNO, Cal., May 17.—-The loss to sheepmen on account of Monday's storm is far greater than first stated. At one place 4,000 sheep were found frozen to death in one heap, where they had tried to find shelter among the trees. The snow was 2 feet deep on top of them. There are thousands of sheep farther back in the mountains and they cannot be reached on account of the snow. There is hardly a possibility that they can be saved. If they were not frozen to death during the storm they will die of starvation before the snow melts. ., ,.

PART 14 NOW READY. NO SETTLEMENT. Miners and Operators Unable to Agra* as Cleveland. CLEVELAND, O., May 17.—The conference of the miners and operators is as far from a settlement of the big strike as ever, and will probably adjourn without reaching any agreement on the questions in diapute. In fact, many of the operators have gone home leaving their proxies. Not even a modus vlvendi, whereby the country can be supplied with coal and the question of wages discussed at another time, ia expected. ' t The convention waa called to order at 0 o'clock, and Chairman Serbe called for a report of the conference committee. Every delegate in historic Case hall knew just what it would be—that no agreement could be reached—and there were no surprises In that After the joint conference committee had reported that they could not agree, Operator H. L. Chapman, of Ohio, and a member of the conference committee, made a brief address. He »a'd that In view of the present depressed condition and the strained condition of manufacturing interests, the operators could not concede the advance asked. President McBride said he was will- Ing to have a vote taken on the compromise offered by the operators, but be would guarantee that the miners would be unanimous against it Col. W. P. Kend, of Chicago, urged both sides to make some concessions and said that the 85-ceot and 56-ceut basis for mining was too low and proposed a compromise of CO and 6D cents. He scored the Miners' association for refusing to permit miners to work in the mines where operators had conceded to the demands of their men, and said that the czar of Russia would not dare to issue such an arbitrary ukase. Vice President Penna, of the Miners' association, then spoke In their behalf, making an able argument to show that the operators were in a position to pay living wages now as at any time in the past After some further discussion a recess was taken.

Widely ribbed pique is one of tbe cotton fabrics French modistes are using for summer gowns. This is is in various colors, yellow, robbin's-egg blue and pink, as well as white. Instead of following simple and severe tailor models the Paris dressmakers make very fanciful dresses of pique mounted over silk and trimmed with heavy bice and ribbon. Thus a pale yellow pique skirt is plaited in eight gored breadths over a yellow silk petticoat, and is trimmed with six points of creamy guipure lace hanging from the belt of black satin ribbon amid the plaits on the back and sides. A round pique waist gathered ona fitted lining of-yellow taffeta is decorated with a large bertha of guipure, and has large mutton-leg sleeves; also a collar and wristbands of black satin ribbon. Vests of yellow pique are in beautiful crepon gowns.as-one of dark green crepon with ;a yellow vest cut low, and the crepon akirt draped to show yellow pique at the foot trimmed with heavy insertion. —Harper's Bamr.
