Hunting Lions on the Southern Coast AS DWo minister has forbiddSn the use ot tails dnriss services, and advised his that they could keep cool by thinking <3 icebergs, the North pole, polar beftrs, and looking at thft minister; and yet most preachers remind their he»rers of the other pfcde. Louis WoMBLfcf says the United States and Great Britain must never again come together in deadly conflict. Wolsely saw the fights around Richmond and he knows what stuff Americans are made of. Not that the Britishers are afraid. Cowardice does hot run in the blood oh either side of the Atlantic. He just recognizes the fact that when the men of the old country and the hew are bitted against each other the war will be So bloody that the world will stand agast at the faerful spectacle and civilization will be set back a century. THE people of North Dakota have a Watchful executive in the person of Govei- hor Miller. If there is any truth in the old apothegm that a stitch in time saves nine stitches, he will see to it that the initial stitch is taken. The Mexican Lottery Company, that endeavored to outbid the Louisiana company for the charter in Louisiana and was defeated, will make an effort to debauch the honor of the people of North Dakota as the people of Louisiana were debauched. They have offered to the state of North Dakota, through the governor, 4250,000 for a charter. Of course, this is merely a preliminary proposition to be increased as the opposition grows stronger. Governer Miller has issued a circular, in which is embodied the terms of the lottery company's tender, and in which he calls attention "to the danger that menaces the good name of the state and urges that public sentiment be aroused BO that no friend of any. lottary can be placed in authority. This is the right course to pursue. Such prompt and decisive action may servo North Dakota a good turn before the legislature meets again, THE GREAT CENSUS. Great as the growth of the United States has been in the past ten years, as the present census will show when the returns are in,, greater still will be the census of the British Empire, Which is to be taken next year. No attempt will be made to compile special statistics, but the census will be very little more than enumeration of the people. After making nil allowances it is likely that it will show, as the Chicago Hearld estimates it, "that the British Empire has about 300,000,00 inhabitants. It is calculated that at the beginning of "1890 the population of the empire was nearly 829,000,000, of whom almost 39,000,000 were in the United Kingdom, almost 272,000,000 in India, and the remainder in the other possessions." This will be abouc four times the total of the census • of the United States. America can boast of as many cities as the Old World which require seven figures with which to express their population, but they are yet a small comparison. London has 4,351,738 inhabitants, Paris 2,260,995 and Berlin 1,489,672. Vienna with 811,434, St. Petersburg with 927,467, Moscow with 748,000, Constantinople with 600,000, Glascow and Liverpool with about 560,000 each, Naples with 494,000, Birmingham and Manchester with about 400,00 each, Madrid with 397,000,.Warsaw with 383,000, Brussels and Lyons each with 377,000, Buda-Pesth with 365,000, and Marseilles with 360,000, comprise the European procession of big cities in the ordes named. But, as the Boston Globe wisely remarks: "This is not a matter concerning which we should feel any impatience, to eclipse Europe, for it would beundoubtedly better, for us if we never succeeded in packing as many people into .as small a space as the European nations have done. The best social conditions are not attained in the largest and most crowded centers of population. Asia can b r ^fcjt has any ground for boastir ,« ^/e millionaire cities than Eurp; ,... the United States combined, the *JS*ugh the absence of any exact census of the Celestial Empire makes this merely a|matter of conjecture. It is generally believed, however, that China has seven cities with over 1,000,000 inhabitants. She is welcome to them, and long may it be before we surpass her in that respect.''

THE loss of life by the cyclone Sunday afternoon at Lake City, Minn, and vicinity is estimated to be between 150 and 200. It is certain that 125 to 150 persons perished by the wreck of an excursion steamer on Lake Pepin. The bodies of sixty-five victims have been recovered and sent to Red W_ing, where most of them resided, and it is thought that nearly as many more are still in the wreck at the bottom of the lake Two instances of whole families perishing together are reported. An accurate statement of the loss of life can not be made until the search for bodies is concluded. 8h6Stl: :«dfB&, N. T ^ "" o»e was ihfored.

It is a coincidence worthy of remark that the day following u ,the wedding of one great explorer should have witnessed tho deatj of the other, last Sunday. Gen. John Charles Fremont died at the advanced age of 77. He was the first candidate of the Republican party for the Presidency, Buchanan defeating him by 174 out of 288 electoral votes. He was a dismal failure as a soldier, but, nevertheless, a man of singular courage and wonderful executive ability., Gen. Fremont began hie career an an exploree and surveyor at «n early age, each undertaking a little more extensive and difficult than the rest. He made repeated trips across the plains and over the Rocky Mountains aiid the Sierras to the Pacific, in the interestpf the United States, and to his reports the first settlement of the great West was due. His party was never large and their escapes from death at the hands of savages, from hunger and cold, were little short of miraculous. His energy was exhaustless ant) hi* love of, adventure so great that he hardly alloWad'hiiubelf to recuperate from one expedition before starting upon another. In the pant twenty-five years he has not been prominent in public affairs, devoting himself to, railroad building. From the Texas Legislature he procured an important grant of land in aid of the Memphis and El Paso Railroad, but was prosecuted by the French Govjritoient for false claims made by tho agents "sent to float the bond* in Paris, aud finally reJiu- quiehed the enterprise.

The conference is to be held at such place as may be mutually agreed upon by the executives of the governments joining in it. And when, in the judgment of the Prsesident of the United States, a sufficient number of nations shall have entered into international Arrangement, he shall declare the rato so fixed to be the existing ratio in the United States. The president is to apoint not less than three nor more than five commissioner tc attend to such conference on the part of the United States, and who are to receive $2,500 and their reasonable expenses. The joint resolution was referred to the finance committee.

House. —In the house to-day Mr. Perkins, of Kansas, presented the conference report on the bill granting the right of way across the Mille Lacs Indian Reservation, to the Little Falls, Mille Lacs and Lake Superior railroad. Mr. Enloq, of Tennessee,-raised the question of consideration in the interest of the private calendar. No quorum being present, a call of the House was ordered. One hundred and ninety-four members—more than a quo- urn—responded to their names. Mr. Perkins moved that further proceedings under the call be dispensed with. Agreed to. Yeas, 130, nays, 55. The conference report was then adopted. SATUIIDAY, July 12. Senate. —In the senate today a remonstrance of the board of trade of Jackson, Tenn., against the federal election bill was presented by Harris. The senate then resumed consideration of the two shipping bills and was .addressed by Mr. Vest. A vote was taken on the postal suosidy bill, and it passed, yeas 28, nays 16— Payne voting.aye, Edmunds no, Plumb not voting. On 'motion of Morrill the tariff bill was token up and tuade "unfinished business." House. —Mr. Conger, of Iowa, called up tne conference report on the silver bill. He said tho bill presented in the report was in the nature of a compromise. It was not just such a bill as he thought congress ought to pass. It was not just such a bill, perhaps, as any member of the house would like to have passed if he were preparing the measure to state his convictions; but it was a bill that would answer the demands of the country, and would answer the demands of the agriculturists, laborers and business men of the country. Mr. Cuteheon, of Michigan, said he regarded the bill as a vast improvement over the monstrosity sent here by the senate, which pioposed to make the United States mints the dumping grounds for all the silver Ml the worlu for the benefit of speculation. It was also an improvement over the bill as it originally passed the house. In the •course of the debate, Townsend (Col.) said he and some other republicans voted for free coinage, and if the gentleman on the other side stood solid, the free coinage bill would have passed the house. Then they had recognized that the only way to get silver legislation at thu session was to go back to the republican party, where they had belonged and (jet it from that party. The conference report was finally agreed to, by a strict party vote, yeas, 132; nays, 90. The bill now goes to the president for his signature. MONDAY, July 14. Senate —The senate took up the sundry civil bill today. Among the many amendments was one inserting $333,000 for tho improvings extending and repairing the vaults in tho treasury building for the construction of vaults o. safes there. An amendment to insert an item of 8500,000 for establishment in Washington of a Latin-American library site to be selected by the secretary of the state and the building to be erected under his directions and supervision, having been reached, Sen, Vest opposed it as a part of sentimental program to secure commerce with South American states. It was nonsence to expect that any glammour could bo thrown over a subject in way of sentiment that would bring such trade. Besides there is now being erected a magnificent library building at the cost of $6.000,000 and certain rooms in that building mijfht bo dedicated to the purpose indicated in tho amendment. Sen nalley concurred with everything that Sen, Vest sa>d. It would be better to take a section or branch of the congressional library and entitle it the Latin-American memorial library. He offered an amendment to that effect and appropriation $25,000 for that purpose. The amendment went over without action. Spooner moved an increase to limit tho cost of the public building uf Milwaukee by $400,000. Agreed to. Having diupos- ed of fifty pages of the bill it w'as laid aside till tomorrow. The senate bill to further suspend for ten years the statute in relation to the guano islands was taken from the calendar and passed.

Mr. Sweeney (Iowa) presented the conference report bill authorizing the construction of a bridge across the Iowa, river at Wapello, Iowa.

Mr. an aincnil- t was at Keshin, on the southern coast of Arabia) as agent for an English house which purchased hides and pelts from the dtsert tribes, when a deputation of natives came in With it petition that a "makekki" be promulgated. This was no more or less than that a courier be sent out by the ruler of the city to read a proclamation to the lions, which had become unusually numerous iri the west. The poor benighted nomads believed that such a proclamation would at once Clear the country of marauders, but Were told to return to their camps, call up their manhood and courage, and defend their property with their lives. About fifteen miles to the west qf Keshin is the eastern border of the Arabian desert, and along this border for .a distance of 200 miles north and south were citinps and villages of half-civilized. Arabs. I had a talk With one of the men who came in, and he told md that none of them could remember when there were so many lions about, and when theyexhibited such boldness. Every flock not only suffered from their depredations, but many people had been killed and carried off, The hunters had gone out, but somehow the beasts had either evaded them or their weapons had bean hoodooed, and they were now at their .wit's end to know what to do. As 1 had a month's let up from business just then, and wanted to study the native character as much as possible, 1 agreed to go out with them and soo what could be done. 1 was no mighty hunter, nor had I ever tested tny nerve on biu game, but the confidence of the natives led inp to hope that 1 might acquit myself with credit should occasion offer.

Each camp has its name, and is generally named after its head man or ruler. 1 found this camp to be situated on the bank of a creek, and as it had been icrmanent for two years it was inclosed. The people numbered about 800 souls, occupying about eighty huts and tents, which were packed very closely. The ierdd pastured on the level lands to the lorth during the day time, and at night were brought into the villago for safety. L'here was a palisade enclosing about five lores of ground, but it was old and out of epair, and there was no place where a ion could not jump it. Indeed they had umped it, and their weight had crushed it down for a distance of several feet, enabling them to trot off with goat or calf or colt without hindrance. On the night before my arrival a lion had smashed down a place seven feet wide, and this had not not came yet been repaired. It was easier to by the granlinj, " ' " >id- A Simple Mini of Millions. Now York Star.. "Cornelius Vanderbilt is one of the most unassuming men in New York City," said Patrolman Jeremiah O'Brien, an old officer-of the Twenty-second precinct the other day. "As he walks from his home on Fifth avenue to the office of the New York Central Railroad in the Grand Central Depot, he has a pleasant word of greeting for every acquaintance that ho meets. There is not an enploye around the station that he does not recognize with a kindly greeting, and they would do anything to oblige'him. He is very much like Chaancey Depew in that respect, and unlike his father, William H. Vanderbilt, who rarely noticed his most intimate acquaintances on the street. 1 have seen Cornelius Vtmdarbilt assist a lady or an old man across tho street, at the corner of Fifth avenue and Forty-second street, when there was an almost unbroken line of vehicles passing that point. Most of the coachmen would recognize Mr. Vinderbill and give ghim a clear passage. These kindly little acts are part of his daily life. They tell me that his charities' are unbounded, but that he gives in such a quiet, unostentatious manner that tho beneficiaries seldom learn tho name of their patron." TUISHDAY, July 15. Senate.— Senator Suerman reported a substitute for the bill introduced by him on the IGth pf May to reduce the amount of United States bonds to be required of tha national banks and to restore to the channels of trade excessive accumulations of lawful money placed in the treasury, it was placed on the calendar. It provides a compulsory requirement to deposit, United States bonds with the treasurer of tho United States by the national banks be limited in amount to $1,000 of the bonds for each bank; provided, that the voluntary withdrawal of bonds for thu retirement of national bank notes shall not exceed $3,000,000 in any month, and also provides the act shall not apply to deposit bonds to secure the deposits of public moneys. Also providing national bunks be entitled to receive circulating notes not exceeding the whole amount per value of bonds deposited and that at no time thu total auount of such shall exceed the amount of capital stock actually paid in. The senate resumed the consideration of the sundry civil appropriation bill, the first item being $200,000 for surveying the public lands, the committee recommend ing an increase to $800,000. Without disposing of the amendment the senate adjourned. House. —Mr. Ciuiuou moved that the house go into committee of ! the whole on the bill appropriating $637,180 for additional clerical force to carry into effect tlw provisions of the dependent pension'act.

The cattle barons have discharged most of the men who drank, and have frowned so persistently upon gambling that little is done. Cards and whiskey being put away, there is small temptation to disorderly conduct; so it is only when they reach some large city, and are not on duty, that they indulge in a genuine spree." On tho ranches kept under fence they have little to do when not on the drive or in branding- time, the cattle being all safely enclosed. But they must take their turns at line riding, which means a close inspection of the fences; and tho repair "of all brakes and damages. Where night overtakes them, there they sleep, staking their horses, and rolling themselves in their blankets. These ridea of inspection take days to accomplish, for there are ranches in Texas which extend in a straight lino over seventy-live miles. Those ranches which are not kept under fence necessitate more work. The boys must then keep their cattle in sight, and while allowing them to graze in every direction, must see that none in the many thousands stray beyond the limits of their own particular pastures. They go then in parties, scattering over the territory, for they must cover hundreds of thousands of acres in a day. It is not a life of hardship, and pays well enough. Everything is furnished them free and of the verj best, and they are paid besides thirty dollars per month. Each party stays out from two to three weeks at a time; but they take-with thorn the finest camp wagons, with beds and bedding, cooking utensils, tho best groceries of all kinds, and as excellent a cook as money can employ. The prairies are full of game, and their rifles are over handy. The life is free, fascinating, and peculiarly healthy. Tho men are exceedingly chivalrous to all women; thin seems to be a trait born in them, iis much a part of their moral nature as it is of their physical to have small feet, for it is seldom that a genuine Texas cow-boy can be found who has not the distinguished uiark of a handsome foot, and his boots are to him all that the sombrero is to a Mexican, Ho will deny himself mapy pleasures, he will go without a coat, and bo seenjin a most delapi- dated a tiro, but his boots must bo of the best and the most beautiful make that the country can afford; high of.heel and curved of iustep, a fine upper and thiii solo, fitting like u glove, and showing the handsome foot to perfection.

As a rule, no more than one pair of lions will frequent a neighborhood, but tho natives insisted that there were at least half a dozen prowling around this. That first night 1 heard distinctly from four, at any rate, though none of them came very close to tho camp. To the west of us was scrubby, rocky ground, with. hero and there a thicxet. It was the same to the south. It was from these directions that the l.ons came, and they often passed clear around the inclosuro before attacking. Next day after my arrival every man, woman mid child set about strength- n ing the inclosuro. 1 brought out from Keshin a camel load of telegraph wire, which had been stored in a wo rehouse there for several years, being part of the cargo taken from a vessel wrecked on the coast. By stretching this wire in three lines.above the palisades wo considerably increased the height, and many new poles and a great quantity of mud helped to make tho defence secure. Six feet inside the gap alluded to I dug a rifle pit. Then we set a stout post an either side of the gap and wove the wire back and forth until it would have stopped the charge of a buffalo bull. About 4 o'clock in the afternoon a goat, was killed opposite this gap, and ila blood allowed to soak into the ground. When the flocks wore driven up at night a large, fat goat was tied to it stake just behind my rifle pit. Just.as dusk came on [ got into the pit with a double-barrelled shotgun, loaded with slu^s; while, as agreed upon, the camp continued its regular routine, so as not to arouse suspicion. It was a star- ight night.'light enough so that I could see a rabbit running over the close-cropped jlain fifty feet away. It was hardly dusk jeforo I heard the far-away roars of lions, but it was an uour later before an enor- nous big fellow suddenly walked into •iow on the spot where the goat had been slain, and, after sniffing at the blood, he raised his head and uttered a roar which nado the earth tremble. Ho stood head- on to me, right in front of the gap,' and while ho still roared ho was joiiieu by his nate. They hadn't come to play the neak. They luul come to take what they wanted by force of arms, whether the viragos thought well or poorly, and fhoy vere even willing to give the men time o prepare. The animals in the inclosure vere wild with fright, and that was to my dvantngo. I knell, down, rusted my gun IU.TOSB a ridtiu uf narth, and wiw ready. Alter "standing for ton minutes on tlm spot where the goat was killed, roaring almost continually, tho lion advanced to within twenty feet of fchog.ip. Ho was the chap who had made it, but I was afraid ho would suspect • some trap and go over the pa iiaite at another point. Ho slood looking square into the gap for three or four minutes, lashing his eyes with his tail, and the goat* behind inu kept up a mournful bleating, Whilu l;.wna looliing full at the lion ho made hid lioinul. His . last ofle had killed a cow ftfld dragged ah lifted her over, and the ends of the logs ato poles Were cotered (with hair atid dfiei blood. On the first nicrht of nsy arrival i seBTftfd as if there were a awsen lion prowling about, but they contented them selves with rosrih? and fighting. The ne* day 1 had the villages dig a pit at the fob of the stockade teh feet deep by four broa and ten long. The* then brought in limb and made a Wattle large enough to spreac over the excavation for a cover. My idea was to capture a lion alive, but so gre>i was the terror of the people that they «?e every argument against the plan. I WB determined, however, and went aheai With mp plans. About twelve feet from the ftockade was as old abandoned hut This We repaired as well as we could, and when hight came T took my station there With a native, Jeach armed With a gun We faced the spot where. a lion would b< apt to enter in case any came, and al around us were .the live stock which 'ha( been driven in for the night. Soon after sunset we heard two lions roar Then all was quiet for an hour, and 1 hai begun to fear that hone of the prowler would come near us, when I Suddenly caught sight of a great object OR the stock ade. It was there only while you conic count five, for it was a lion in his leap H« simply totiched the top of the stockade With his feet and then leaped to the ground, and the next thing we heard was a muffled roar. "He's in the pit— come on!" I callet to the native, and leaving my gun rushed out to the hole. Just as I reached it the beast roarec aorain, and I heard him bounding about, The wattle loaned against the stockade and I dragged it away and flung it over the hole just in time to have it bumped by the head of the lion as he sprang to gel put. I stood on it and called for help, bill it was ten minutes before I could get one of the cowardly rascals to come near me Then they rolled large rocks on the wattle and we had his royal highness secuiely imprisoned, For a quarter of an hour the bpn-st made a tcrriole fuss, but he finally realised that he \ms helpless, and ho grew quiet. The village was awake all nigh] long, and when morning came and wo coulc see our prize we found him to bo a full- grown male and a perfect specimen. It took all that day to build a cage stoul enough to hold him, and dm ing the day and night we trave the animal neither food nor drink. Next day we|jet about getting him out of the pit. *Ve accomplished this after three or four hours' hard work bj means of forked poles, noosed ropes, ancl several blankets. He fought us every instant, and when he was finally safe in the cage he kept up a continuous roaring for more than an hour. It was a week before I started with him for Keslnn, and during that time not a lion was seen nor heard. Indeed, it was nearly four months before another appeared. I got my captive down to tho sea in good shape, and it wasn't three days before he was sold for 80 pounds to go to the zoological gardens at Bombay. — New York Sun. WilHlilngton In Summer. After May Washington is in all essentials a Southern city. Houses change their aspect both outside und inside,,.and a distinct suiuiner order reiifiis. Outside blinds arc hooked to house windows.| iwnings fend off the sun's rays, and floors and stairs bare, or, at the most, laid with straw mat- tings, giving a cooler, fresher, and more spacious air to the interiors. Portieres, curtains, and dust-inviting articles disappear, and furniture slips itself into cool holland coverri. The White House, tho public buildings undergo this change as much as private'houses, and the city is in trim for its long summer siege. The doorstep becomes the drawing-room after dinner, and every one follows this good Southern fashion. The ladies wear white and light wnsh dresses on the streets, in hotel dining-rooms, and everywhere else, as is not done to the same extent in any Eastern city to the north of it. Tho open street cars deaj rheumatism, returns to la grippe, and summer colds; but those who become seasoned to them and survive pronounce them a summer blessing. A Washingson house is a great responsibility through tho summer to the owner who does not care to or cannot be in it all the year round. The most trusted servants, the "perfect treasures" of butlers, have furnished many sad and amusing stories by their coolly turning handsome residences into colored boarding-lumses for tho summer. One Senator who left his house in charge of a faithful man-servant was suddenly called to Washington in a deserted summer, and found a reunion ol colored society on his doorstep, a colored pianist, vocalist, and several conversationalists enjoying the • drawing room, and quite Uio ' comedy of The Belles of the Kitchen beiiif, played without foot-lights. Tho great floating population of the,bet ter class, the people without fixed homos but with sufficient income-faiyij^fe rf lei sure, complain that theorbo"plac?i%« ( to in June. These are jS ]e people w)«Wf South in the winter and return slowlfniSti li ward in the spring, who help fill the watering-places in the summer, and at intervals make long stays on the Pacific coast and in Europe. It is the boarding-houses and the pensions that they fill rnlher than the peat hotels, and to Washington they come in increasing numbers yearly. The greaterpro- portion of them are widows, and the women in mourning attire are two-thirds of the whole class. For then 1 Juno is too late to stay in any of thesi Enstern cities, and it is n FOimon of loneliness, of carpenters, and painters at the watering-places. It is the tiding over of these June weeks which sends half of them to Europe, where sone place is always ready, and is never out of season, and the vagaries of the American thermometer are never approached.

A lot of ten-year-olds were told by the teacher in a Preequo isle, Me,, school the other day to write the names of five persons of v/hoai they bad read.

In fulling backwark she got her foot twisted "in the wires and could not extricate it. She hung with shoulders on the ground, and of all the infernal noises ever made by u wild animal her racket capped tho climax, nhe roared, shrieked, growled, howled, sobbed, moaned and wheezed, and while every man in the villi.go cowered in four, I was so rattled (hat it was a couple of minuets before.I"could reload.

CINCINNATI, July IS.—A terrib sion occurred late this afternoon at the Rings powder mills, on the little Miami railroad, 29 miles east of this city. Teri persons are known to have been killed and thirty or forty more were more of less seriously injured. Two empty freight cars weie being rolled into the side track, where a car con taining five hundred kegs of gun powder was standing As the cars struck there was an explosion, and immediately afterwards another car, containing eight hundred kegs of gun powder, exploded, making thirteen hundred kegs altogether, Win. Frnuly, a brakeman, was standing on one of the empty curs when the explosion occurred. No trace of his body has been found. Fivo other persons supposed to have been employes if the powder company, were killed. The Kings powder company and Peters cartridge works have buildings on both sides of the river along the railroad. The explosion oc- cured on the south side and the destruction was enormous. There are a number of. cottages occupied by the workmen in the powder company, and situated close to the track. Those were shattered and their inmates injured. Twelve or fifteen girls at work in the cartridge factory were crippled by the explosion. The railway freight house belonging to the Little Miami railroad, together with all the adjacent buildings, were set on fire and totally consumed. The track and tics of the railroad are torn up and a great hole is ploughed in the ground, Peters' cartridge factory was burned to the ground and nothing but a mass of blackened, smoldering ruins remains to mark the spot whnre the building stood. As soon as the news reached this city a relief train was dispatched to the disaster, with Superintendent Peters and a large party of surgaoni on board, and relief was afforded the sufferers as soon as possible. The work of searching for the missing and caring for the wounded is now progressing. The force of the explosion demolished all the wires in the vicinity and it was impossible to get any news from there until midnight, when the delayed Pan-handle train arrived. Even then the passengers could not say much as everything about the Kings mills was in too demoralized a condition when they left to learn much about the actual state of affairs. They describe the scene in the vicinity of the explosion as awful. Fences, trees, and buildings for hundreds feet in all directions, from the explosion were wrecksd. The Peters cartridge factory was literally demolished by the explosion and the fire from its combustible contents completed the work of destruction. About 30 girls are thought to have been at work in the factory at the time of the explosion and mcst of them are thought to be badly injured. Passengers Who arrived .on the train say that ten persons were killed and it is possible that more bodies are in the debris. UELJCNAP JUSTIFIES IIIMSEI/F.

BED WING, July 16.—The doleful tolling of the church bells is still to ba heard in this city, today. The list of recovered dead from the disaster having been greatly- increased since yesterday. Eight bodies wore brought up this morning. In the afternoon sixteen more were brought up, and one was sent over to Lake City, and tonight another boat load arrived. This swells the list of recovered dead to 100, and it is thought that about a dozen bodies still lie in the lake. The scene at the lake shore, the disaster having occurred two miles this side of Lake City, in Goodhue county, is a sad one. When the first bodies were recovered Sunday night iiri.l Monday morning, the faces were calm and peaceful and showed little or no signs of having come to a sudden death. Not so with those found last night and today. All' these were bloated and blackened beyond, recognition so that the clothing, aud jewelry and papers were the only way for friends to claim their dead. The warm weather and the shallowness of the water, together with the fact that several big steamers sent up heavy swells today, as they passed up the river brought the bodies to the surface very quickly, Patrolling row boats towed the bodies ashore, where they were identified as soon as possible, boxed and shipped to this city. Engineer Sparks, of the Sea Wing, tonight entered an emphatic denial ol the report that he, the captain, or any of the • crew had been drinking, 'fhe friends of Sparks mul Capt.
