Waie of later FiYj Feet High ; Quarter of a Mile Wide. WEAK-WALLED UESERYOIK Farm llsuses Carried Away and Farm . Lands Devastated Many If u mors of Loss of Life Details Sot Obtainable. Curtis, Neb., June 8. Swelled by the heavy rains of the last few days, Curtis Lake burnt from its banks last night and the rushing waters carried desolation throughout the Medicine Lake valley. Thousands of dollars worth of railroad property In Southwest Nebraska has been destroyed, miles of meadows are a muddy waste, dotted with wrecked buildings and drowned live stock. Human life probably has been sacrificed In the terrible flood that swept across Frontier county to those In Its path. Details on this score have not yet been secured. About 7 o'clock last night the high railroad embankment, which had resisted the tremendous pressure of the lake on one side, gave way, and the (nt-up waters dashed forth. The embankment melted away like so much snow and the result was that practical ly the entire large body of water was released In a moment. Nothing, with stood the roaring flood, and the waters rolled In a wall five feet high and a quarter of a mile, wide down the valley of the Little Medicine Creek. Railroad tracks were torn up and tossed aside like straws. Hundreds of freight cars were swept out of the railroad yards and carried away like paper boats. The Curtis Roller Mills toppled over In an instant, so terrific was the onslaught of the raging flood. The mills represented an Investment of $20,000. Down the valley the flood took Its way, carrying everything before its foaming crest. It could have found no richer course upon which to wreak Its work of devastation. Miles of heavy meadows of alfalfa stretched down the , valley, on which graied hundreds of cattle and horses. Farm houses thickly scattered told the story of thrift and success. The tossing waves covered the meadows and wallowed up the houses In a twinkling. It ts known that many farmers were fortunate enough to near the roar of ' the approaching deluge and escape be fore the waters reached them, but there can be no doubt that all were not so quickly warned. Medicine Valley, which lies between the Piatt and the Republican rivers, Is densely populated. All kinds of rumors are coming In and the disaster grows more frightful In lis aspect with every fresh report. POTATO LAND NEEDED. There Were Not L'nonjh Plots to Enppljr All the Poor Paop'.e Who Are Willing to Work Them. Bo numerous have been the requests from poor people for vacant land to cultivate under Mayor Jewett's scheme that a call has been issued for more plots. People having land that they can give for the purpose are requested to communicate with Mayor Jewett. It is stated that about 250 acres are In course of cultivation now and the potatoes planted two or three weeks ago give promise of a healthy crop. At first half an acre of land was given to each family. Supt. Michael was quickly convinced that this was too much nd he cut the allowance down to one-third of an acre. He states that the poor people manifest a lively Interest in the work and believes It will be a great help to thermnext winter.

Once Cashier of the Queen City Bank, and Lost a Good Deal of His Money In Marian, Intl., and Real Estate Ventures Which Kerer Panned Out. Word has been received In Buffalo that Gue C. Hardesty, well-known In Buffalo, committed suicide at Little Rock, Ark., yesterday by taking poison. Among the letters and papers In his pockets was. an envelope addressed to his wife, Mrs. Carrie F. Hardeaty of this city. It was taken possession of by Coroner Walters. Among other things it spoke at length regarding some of his business affairs. In closing he wrote: "I leave this mesaage for two reasons: First, that if my existence was in doubt, you might have trouble with my property or settlements; the other, that it might affect . your marriage again, which I hope you will do. As to the property, the I. C. case ts a just one. I agreed to pay Osgood by & Hamll one-third of all that they got. Johnson will be all the witness you will need. He should pay you the $1000 less what he has advanced. Pelham, I hope, will do right by you. lie should let you have at least JJ-000 of stock. A large share of my notes to Mrs. Lee were unjust be cause T was forced to settle by allowing full amount of contract city school bonds. I have been to Uod much and am myself. Forgive me all my wrongs and commend the good." The Little Rock officials have com municated with the dead man's rela tives here and the body will probably be brought to this city for burial. Mr. Hardesty was well known In Buffalo and at one time was very prom inent In real estate matters, taking ac tive part In the Marlon, Ind., enterprise, and In the Catling Town Site Company which was floated and the bulk of the property sold off on the understanding that the Oatllng Gun Company was going to locate Its immense worka on the property which had been laid out for it. He was an investor, not an origina tor, In the Catling deal, and, it Is said, he lost a considerable amount of his fortune when the bottom dropped out of the two big deals. He was unfor tunate In getting In and getting out of the deals at the wrong time. For a considerable length of time Mr. Hardesty was cashier of the Queen City Bank, which he helped to organize, and remained in that position until the bank had a streak of hard luck and went to the wall one day last July. The temporary failure of the bank welshed on his mind and he was Involved In considerable litigation, which was a natural result of the failure. His busl ness troubles began to weigh on his mind and a year ago he went West for his heahh. At that time he lived at 187 Fourteenth street with his wife and rlve-year-old son. Since then he has been traveling about the country at tending to his reaJ ett- business. which in spite of his reverses here were quite large In other cities. For two or three weeks past hi rela tlves In this city have not known where he was located and have been very much worried over his whereabouts and condition, because they knew his mind had been weakened by his business en tanglements, and they feared he mlglit make away with himself. Five weeks ago he left Buffalo to go to Detroit where he has real estate interests. From there he went to To.-ledo, where he remained until three weeks ago. From that time up to yes terday his whereabouts were unknown to any of his friends or relatives. Mr. Hardesty was a brother of ex- Judge L. Q. Hardesty, who defended the Robinsons recently. Judge Har desty, since his brother's disappearance from Toledo, has used every means at his command to locate him. "Ever since Gue left Toledo," said Judge Hardesty this morning, "I have sent inquiries to every city where I thought he might be to get some trace of him If possible, without success. feared he would kill himself because of the peculiar way In which he actei. While he was cashier of the Queen City Bank, you will remember, he had a very bad attack of nervous prostration which I believe affected his mind to such an extent that recovery was a! most impossible. His health, mentally and physically waa destroyed by that attack. A short time ago he began an action against the Queen City Bank to recover $35,000, which he alleged the bank owed him. He had advanced money for some of the stockholders, but he never received any of that back." Mr. Hardesty was born in Eastowns-end. Huron county, O., in 1860. When he, reached manhood he practiced law for a while, but later went to Kansas City ana engaged in the banking business, Then he went to New York and organized the Bank of Angelica. Six years ago he came to Buffalo and en gaged In the real estate business. He was worth at that time In the neighborhood of 175.000, but his unfortunate connections with shallow real estate deals broke into this money and he lost tne greater part of it.

The Advertiser publishes the following regarding the relations between ex-President Harri son and ex-Speaker Reed: Scarcely once since the inauguration of the Indlanian in 1889 haa the Maine statesman so much as nodded to him. Indeed, there is about as little cordiality between them as there ha been for three months between Thomas Collier Piatt and Mayor Strong. The trouble began not long after Harrison took the oath of olllce. Reed called upon him at the White House one day and Informed him that the Democratic Col- lecUu- at Portland, Me., the home of the ex-Speaker, had been cutting up so many monkeyshlnes that he thought lit would be conducive to the excellence of the public service that he be given his conge. The President replied that he proposed, so far as possible, to perml Cleveland's appointed to serve out their terms. But, of course, if charges were preferred he would- be compelled to consider them. Mr. Reed formulated charges and presented them. The President did not hasten consideration of them with the speed Mr. Reedthoped he would, and the latter chafed much under the delay. Repeatedly did Reed urge the decapitation of the Democratic incumbent and the appointment of a sterling Republican by the name of J. T. Bartol In his stead. While the President was' heal, fating Mr. Reed waa elected Speaker of the House of Representatives. Soon after he learned that James G. Blaine, who was then Secretary of State, and Senators Eugene Hale and William P, Frye were quietly grooming a candidate. Inquiry revealed the fact that they had already recommenedt-d the appointment of a son of Gen. Neal Dow, the Prohibitionist leader, and that the Presl-dent was seriously thinking of naming the young man. On hearing this Speaker Iteed hurried to the White House, saw the President, and secured from him an admission that Dow had been recommended, but could obtain no satisfactory reply as to whether Dow Instead of Bartol would be chosen. During the interview the Speaker, In his own peculiar sarcastic way, reminded the President that, as Speaker, he thought he was entitled to have a little something to say as to who should occupy the federal otllces in his own home and his own district. "I beg to remind you of the fact," continued the Speaker to the President, "that neither Blaine, nor Hale, nor Frye Is a resident of my district. Blaine has the world at his command, by virtue of his office as Secretary of State, while Hale: and Frye, I should think, ought to be content with a monopoly of about all the good things In the State at large, without intrenching upon my territory. Things have come to a prettty pass," added Reed, with a scornful tone, "If the Speaker of the House of Representatives cannot recommend and have appointed the Collector of his own port." What Harrison's reply was has not yet been given to the world. Not very long after, however, the President sent Dow's nomination to the S -nate. The Speaker learned of It on one of the dnys upon which he had been wrestling with over M0 filibustering Democrats, with Willie Breckinridge and Buck Kllgore at their head, and a madder man was never seen at "Washington. -Asking Julius Caesar Burrows of Michigan to the chair, he hastened to the Senate Chamber and called Senators Frye and Hale Into the cloak room. There he gave them such a dressing down as they never had before or since. The epithets he applied to them were said by those who overheard them to be unique in the history of billingsgate. But they refused to ask the President to withdraw the nomination. That night Speaker Reed sent for the writer of this story. When the writer entered the Speaker's apartments at the Shoreham he found him pacing the floor like a caged lion. He ground hia teeth, and then turning upon his visitor demanded to know what he thought of a President who absolutely Ignored suggestions from a Speaker as to appointments In his own district. He waa told that old timers would probably agree that the situation was most extraordinary. "Well." exclaimed Reed with all the rage he could summon, for the ncca: slon, "this little man over at the white House will live to sorely regret this dny. It Is an outrage on public decency to be treated as the Speaker of the House of Representatives haa been treated." Then the Speaker dictated to the correspondent one of the most venomous attacks that was ever directed at a public man. President Harrison waa flayed most unsparingly and unmercifully, and hl Administration, so far aa it had gone, was arraigned with all the vlndlc-tlveness of which Reed is a master. After the attack had been made ready for the telegraph, Speaker Reed requested that it be not wired th.it night. "Let me sleep over It, and come and see me in the morning," he explained. The next day the correspondent visited the Speaker In his room at the Capitol and asked permission to telegraph what had been dictated to his paper. "No," responded the Speaker, waving his hand toward the other end of the avenue. "He Is not worth the powder." This was said with a look of mingled scorn and contempt. From that day to this Gen. Hrr!an and Mr. Reed have scarcely been on speaking terms. Much as Reed resented the interference of Blaine, Frye and Hale, he regarded the act of Harrison as so much the more reprehensible that he did not darken the doors of the White House during the remainder of the Administration. And when Hirrl-son came up for a renomlnatton Reed united with the admirers of the Secretary of State In the plucky but unsuccessful battle to name him for tie Pees tdency. Repeatedly since, on hearing that the Hoooler statesman was to be the guest of honor or at any rate a guest at political banquets to whch he haa been Invited, Reed has sent his re-gretrf or ignored his requests to be present. Explanation From Dr. Foote. Dr. Foote denies that he charged $5 for a death certificate In the case of the little Polish girl who was knocked off a trestle by a train on Decoration Day. The child lived until the next morning under Pr. Foote'a care and he charged is for his professional services. The parents probably misunuerstooa tne matter. EVEXTS AND MEETINGS.

Niagara Falls Barbers Kept Right on Sharing Funeral of Miss Colman at Dunkirk State Keifs. SPBCIAT. TO Tn IVKNIHO HEWS. Lockport, June 3. The agony of the second trial of Joshua 8. llelmer Is over and this time the Jury failed to agree. As forecasted In the NEWS yesterday the Jury came In with a report of a disagreement at 0 o'clock yesterday morning and were discharged by Judge Nash. When the tlrst ballot was taken the sentiment was about evenly divided as to llelmer's guilt or innocence. After asking for Instructions from the Court several times adjournment was taken at 11 P. M. until 6 A. M Sunday. The vote last taken stood lu for acquittal and 2 for conviction. This probably will mean that llelmer will not he tried on this indictment again, having escaped twice. There Is still hanging over him an Indictment for perjury in swearing to false statements relative to the condition of the bank and this will be moved next undoubtedly. Klsle Colman's Funeral.

Illinois Anarchist Governor Yents His Spleen on the United States Supreme Court. DECISION AGAINST DEBS. "XiTr Were There So Many Influences at Work Strangling Republican Institutions at Wfishlngton," Siys Altgeld-Turnlng tolnt In Onr Illstorj. Springfield, Ills., June 8 Governor John P. Altgeld is of the belief that the United States supreme court has established a dangerous precedent In remanding Kffgene V. Dobs and his friends to jail. Ho eiprosscd himself In a very caustic manner regarding the decision, accusing the court of trampling on the rights ot the people and being the tool of monopoly. He gives his views for publication in a 6lgned article, In which he says in part: "This decision makes a turning point In our history, for it establishes a new form of government never before heard of among men, that is, govornmont by injunction. "The provisions of the constitution 'that no man shall be deprived of his liberty without a trial by au impartial Jury' is practically wiped out by this decision of the United Stafc-s supreme court, and the theory that ours was exclusively a government of law is now at an end, for every community is now subject to obey any whim or caprice which any federal judge may promulgate. And it federal judges can do this, then It will not be long until state judges will follow this example. "Fur a number Of years It has been remarked that the decision of the United States courts were nearly alwoys in favor of corporations. Then It was noticed that no man could be appointed to federal judgeship unloss he Wits satlsfoctory to those Interests. V "Over a year ago tho New York World talked nboue a packed, supreme oonrt and tliaicotirf hiu'-WTthm a few days rendered two decisions which unfortunately tena to confirm this charge. "Copital sits in the White' House and legislates in the CapitoL Court of justice are Its ministers and legislature are its lackeys. And the whole machinery of fashionable society is its handmaid. "Never has there been so muoh patrlotio talk u in the last 25 years and never were there so many influenocs at work strangling Republican Institutions." RETALIATORY STEP.
