In «. nnr»tln« 0am Dor« Great F>a Idaho. ItouK, Idaho, March 15.—Xcws wn* received in this city Wednesday evening that tho Indian creek reservoi r had broken and was swooping down upon ranches and villages, carrying destruction and ruin in Its path. This reservoir was constructed of «olid masonry at tho head of Indian croek by Hyde * Jackson. Nsw York capitalists, to irrigate an orchard of 640 acres. The reservoir covered 500 acres. Tho dam cost |SO,000. The country between Dysuka anil Caldwell is all under water. Every railroad bridge between Uwnpa and JJysnka Is washed out und many miles of railroad track is submerged, which will prevent trains from running over the Shore line for many days. The dam broke about noon and messengers were sent at breakneck speed on horseback to warn the settlers and urge families to places of safety. A mighty wall of water came sweeping down Indian creek, bearing houses, iheep,calves,barns,farrning utensils and submerging- whole farms. The citizens of Nama, a little town on the Short line saw the approach of the devastating water and fled to high ground. Soon all tho lover part of the town was under water from B to «0 feet deep. Fifty houses are ruined and many families are without shelter and bedding. Merchant* are loaning blankets to destitute families, and provisions are being furnished to those in need. Vt is reported here that two men were drowned, one while attempting to save his property and another who rushed to his assistance. Tho cause of the disaster was the sudden turn of > tho weather, coupled with heavy rains, which caused the rapid melting of tho snow in tho mountains. Snake river rose 8 feet Wednesday. This part of Idaho has had the heaviest fall of snow this winter known for years, and this melting rapidly tilled the creeks and burst the dam. Tho property is a total loss. So far Mountain Home reservoir is safe, but fears are entertalnnd that it will sharo tho fiitn of its Indian creek neighbor. MAY'S SrUJHTAUt »l,aBU,UUU.

Ellsworth, the famous commander of the Ellsworth zouaves, at Alexandria, Va. The Incident created a furore at the north and fanned into Intensity the blaze of patriotism then sweeping over the land. The Killing of Jncloon. Hrowncll was » private in the Ellsworth zouaves and was with3 that company when it went to Alexandria, Va., the day after the ordinance of secession was passed. Mr. .lackson, proprietor of the Marshall house in that city, hoisted the confederate fl.og over the building. Col. Ellsworth went to the hotel and hauled it down.

His conduct during; the remainder of tho great struggle was creditable iu tne extreme and he retired with a record enjoyed by few, j. .Brownell was 63 yews ot age. During his fatal illness he talked in his de-. lirium of his efforts to disclose tho conspiracy of the Knights of the Golden Cirle. which ho investigated while acting as assistant to the provost marshal general of St. Louis.

Ind., March 15.—Tie supreme court Wednesday declined to consider again the College avenue saloon case. The court had passed upon, the subject three limes. John H. Stehllu opened a saloon in College avenue adjoining the property of Mary E. Haggard, 'the plaintiff, who took the position at court that the saloon depreciated the value of tho property. The supreme court first decided the controversy in favor of Stehlin. Judge McCabo, in a rehearing of the case, decided in favor of Mary Haggard. The) court Wednesday, without an opinion, declined to reopen the case. Afar-reack- ing decision is thus finally sna- tained. The court holds that where it is shown that a saloon depreciates property a process at law to secure damages is proper. The liquor interests have looked upon this as tha heaviest blow struck at their business in recent years. Hf.»TT Vote AffullMt. a Krtlurtlon.
