Two negroes who live near Marion, Ark.} attempted to otoaa Mound Lake In a dugout, when they were caught in the mighty current, their boat waa capsized, and they were swept away. The change In the situation In the past > twenty.-four hours has been decidedly foir the worse In every respect so far aa the flood and flood victims are concerned. 'Localities that were expected up to the last moment to withstand the overflow are at last under water. People who thought they were?..safe from the angry river find themselves hemmed in and their danger Is the greater because of the confidence, that prevented'them from providing against them. From 'every direction 'come reports of unexpected and unprecedented disaster. . \ Many rumors of wholesale drowning are current, but these cannot be verified. The conditions are undoubtedly such that there will be Innumerable fatalities before long,'unless thd'help- less ones are relieved. Intense Interest In the floods animates everybody in the city.

Inaargents Blow tip a train on a High Tre*tle In Flnar del Rio — Prisoner* Captared Are Retarded to the 8p«ol»!» Line ». •' . •' New York, March 17.—A Havana special to-the-World-Bays^that-a-trala carrying Spanish troops was blown up by dynamite while passing over - deep gorge south of Candelarla, Pi del Rio province, and that nearly -jJ soldiers were killed or Injured. The locomotive and six cars were demolished. This occurred about March 10. Th6 Spanish general, Arlal, had learned of a projected Insurgent attack • on San Cristobal, and he sent off 500 troops In armored cars to reinforce the garrison there. About ten miles from San Cristobal the road crosses a deep gorgo on a very high bridge, about 500 feet long. The insurgents, learning of the departure of the train, lined the bridge at the bende and the center with heavy charges of dynamite, connecting the explosives by wires with a battery in the woods r.ome distance off. Three hundred Insurgents lay In ambush near by. Captaiu John Lynjft, the young American electrical engineer, who has made Jiimself famous In Cuba for his work on the dynamite" gun, contrived the affair. • The train approached the bridge about 3 o'clock In the morning. When fully on it all three charges were exploded by the wires. The engine and cars flew into the air like so many chips, and fell into the deep gorge below, crushing dead and Injured alike. -Ihere—the-wreckage-caught-flre. _ As soon as. the explosion occurred tho-lnsurgents^lashed-out from under cover and opened fire. But for the timely hoisting of a whlt« flag by Colonel Mores, who was In command of the Spanish forces, every man would have been macheted. As It "was the Cubans secured 300 prisoners, Including ten officers. The private soldiers were released and sent to San Cristobal, the officers were retained as hostages ; , v for twenty-five insurgents who r 'are held at Artemlsa and threatened with death. • The Spaniards here admit the dynamiting of the f rain, but claim that the details are exaggerated. ,, Want High Ti»riff on Lumber.

The memorial demands a duty on rough lumber~6raFIeasr $2 "per 1^000 and on shingles of 36 cents. - Complications Over the Bermuda. Washington, March 17.—An interest- Ing complication seems likely to arise In the near future between the British Embassy and the Spanish Legation here over this filibustering steamer Bermuda. The Bermuda Is a British ves- cel. She is believed to be liable under the Britsh foreign enlistment act rather than the American neutrality laws, and therefore the British and Spanish diplomats.here r it is- expectedi-will exchange notes on the subject.

Her troops are ill-fed, Ill-clothed, and unpaid. They are murmuring, and the wet Reason Is now less than a month away. It will bring the deluge. It is possible that the Cuban provisional government would pay for freedom, but with an unpurchased freedom , within their grasp It Is 'not probable that they would buy it. REVIEW THE New Tariff Meaiure Before the Fall Committee on Wfcy§ and Mean*. Washington, March 17.—The democratic members of the ways and means committee received their first official Information on the new tariff bill Tuesday, when the bill was considered at a secret session of the full committee.

This granting ^J the tern- l porary Injunction, to take the place of a. restraining order, Implies that-the court holds that the Injunction pro- ; ceedlng Is the proper one. The order prohibits the canvassers from delivering the ballots to any person, and Is to hold until the question of the constitutionality of the act providing for will be-in,two• or three months. The governor will probably lay the matter before the legislature. Say Rebels Are Victorious. Madrid, March 17.—A dispatch to the Impartial from Manila does not. bear out the rosy-hued statements Issued by the government respecting the situation in the Philippine islands. • Instead of the Spanish troops winning successive victories over the Insurgents, the Imparclal's correspondentrdeclarea that the campaign- Is almost-paralyzed 1 owing to the lack of reinforcements. Owing to the scarcity of troops, it la impossible for the Spaniards to carry on an offensive campaign. Republican -Senators Are Seated.
