WITHOUT WARNING Sudden Collapse of a Big Stand- Pipe at Peoria, 111. A 'Young Boy Instantly Killed and Several Persons Badly Hurt— Street* Deluged with Water. D1SASTKK AT I'KOHIA. I'EOIHA, III., March ;;o.—The most appalling disaster I'eoriii has known since the wruek of the steamer Frank ie Volsom tliren years ago occurred about H o'clock a. in. An immense standpipe bolong-'mg to the IVovhi Water company suddenly burst, causing terrible damage. One boy w.'is Uilled, lit least ten other persons were srriunsly injured and two employes of the water company are tnissiiijf and are supposed to be untier the wreck, in addition to this five houses and barns were crushed, several cithers were swept from their foundations and an immense amount of damage was done to surrounding properly. Tlio Victim*. The boy who was killed was Frank Ilogan, aged 14. Among the injured are: Warron Anderson, sboulder broken-, Frank Caldwell, log broken In tour places and will have to be amputated; Charles Ltuiotleld, internal injuries which may prove fatal: Rollo King, bead badly cut; Charles Noedham, internal Injuries; Borttia Norman, head cut and badly brulsod; John.Iionnedy, Ironworker, Internal Injuries; 1 tbreo employes o( tlm Peoria Water company; name* cannot bo learned, seriously,Injured. How til* Dl«tt»ter Occurred. The standpipe was 120 feet high and 20 feet in diameter, built of steel plate three-quarters of an inch thick, and was supplied from a 30,000,- OOU-galloa reservoir 3 miles back on tho blutf, giving it a tremendous pressure. The recent, cold snap and subsequent thaw had sprung some of the joints and workmen were engaged in repairing them during the morning. A number of schoolboys were watching the operation when, without any warning, the great steel plates suddenly burst wundar with a frightful roar of escap- ng water. The workmen were swept away on the awful Hood, The tower was torn in two near the base, and the immense structure toppled slowly and fell with a crash that was heard all over the city. Luckily it fell in an open spiMie, so no buildings were crushed by its fall, but if any had joen there it is doubtful if they would have been left by the time the mmense moss of steel and water reached the ground, so fearful was th« 'orce of the water-burst, sent in all directions under a pressure of nearly 200 tot head. The tower stood in a thick- y settled neighborhood, on the brow of the bluff, easily visible from all parts of the city. When the crash was heard and the immense tower was seen to be rone telephone messages soon shut oft ;he water at the reservoir and stopped .he immense geyser that was boiling up from the earth in a column 20 feet ,hick and fully as high. B»rohtuK to' tbe Victim*. As soon as the water had subsided a orce of employe* and police began to earch for the killed and injured among tho debris. Most of the victims were found 100 or more feet away from he sita of the tower, where they had >oen washed by the force of the flood. The only one killed, Frank Hogan, was ,ak«n from under a twisted sheet of teel 20 feet square which had been torn out of the side of the tower and lurled 50 feet. The whole surrounding country was in immense morass and men found it lifflcult to pick their way amid the lebris of houses, trees and shrubbery. > Three of the boys were dug out of tho oundalion of a house where a supor- tructure had been carried away. They vere almost covered with mud and iebris. Some MurreJon* £*uape*. Serious as was the damage, there v-ere a number of very fortunate es- apes. Several children, among them baby 2 years old, were washed ahead r the terrible flood that suddenly certook them at their play, but luck- ly escaped any worse injury than » horough drenching, a bad scare and light bruises. The house next 0 the tower was completely demol- ihed, but fortunately no one was with- 1 it at the time. Two other houses vere washed several feet off their oundations, but their occupants, wom- n and children, received no further in- ury than the shock ol having their ome struck and moved away by an mmense wall of water. Tbe tower was built four years ago y the Peoria Water company, a corpo- ation which bought out the old city •aterworks and put in a complete ew plant Tho company has been aving trouble with the city, and everal months ago Judge Grossup appointed Cornelius Gold, of New York, recover, the company nav- ng defaulted in the interest on its onds. A number of heavy suits for amages, property and personal, are uro to result from this disaster and •ill still further complicate the affaiw f the company.

THE COLONEL'S STORY. llrscklnrlclRO Contlrnii-n Illii VMilviien In Mm Fitmi>uft 1 rial. WASIIIXOTO.V, Murcli 30.—Congressman lirL'cldnridfrc continued his testimony, telliun an entirely different story than wsis told by Madeline Pollard of their nine ycrxrs of illicit relationship, On Thursday afternoon he told of the circumstances under which this relationship began. 11 was fliiriuff a buggy ride taken at Uie plaintiff's suggestion, and was brought about tliroiiffh no persuasion or protestations of love by the witness. Col. Kreuiiinrid^e said that the day after the biifgy ride incident., lie took a train for Lexington and found the plaintiff there, not by any prearraufrc- mentwith him, however. A conversation resulted in an arrangement to moot at Sarah t!oss' house in Lexington. The place of meeting was suggested by Miss Pollard, who said she had visited there with Rhodes. The meeting at the Goss residence took place and witness said he remained with the plaintiff until about 10:30, and she elected to spend the night there instead of going to u more respectable place. There were no protestations of love or affection on his part, said Col. Jireckinridge, and no talk with the plaintiff about helping- her to secure an education. She appeared to be a woman fully grown and matured and understood matters pertaining to the -sexes that a young girl would not know. The witness paid her expenses and gave her sufficient money to get back to Cincinnati. lie denied having had correspondence with the plaintiff under assumed names, and then devoted some time to tracing his own movements. For a long time, till August, 188.1, he knew nothing 1 of plaintiffs movements. Col Breckiuridfifo told of several other meetings with the plaintiff. He denied the statement -made by the plaintiff on the witness stand that she went to Washington to reside because of his importunities. On the contrary, he said, he did all he could to prevent her going to the capital. There was no resumption of relations with the plaintiff until July, 1887. He told of her sending to him for mone/frequently, and said he always gavo her 'whatever amount she asked for, believing Lor story that it was used for the purpose of defraying medical expenses. The witness had nerer told him that she had given birth to a IMag child. Mr. Butterworth then •aid to the witness; "The plaintiff has said that on two occasions, after protestations of love, you said you would marry her if it was possible." •There is not a acintllla of truth in that atatement—not it shred. Under no circumstances, at no time, was there such a statement The plaintiff never alluded to the possibility of it Before the death of ray wife there was not a solitary word that could be distorted into such a thing."

Not a word has passed between the governor and the speaker, and the ]at,ter's name had not even been presented formally to die governor. A SllrpriHO. The appointment created a groat surprise when it was announced, because the name of the spi'.uk«r had not been mentioned or suggested in connection with the position, but on every hand the governor is beinfr highly complimented for his selection. There were some thirty aspirants for the place, arid delegations have been uulliug on the governor for the last two days urging the name of some one of the possibilities. John Hall, assistant attorney general. a» soon as Senator Golquitfs death seemed imminent, appeared in Atlanta, on behalf of the administration, to 81'EA.KRR CEISP. urge upon Gov.

The Governor** Reuon. Gov. Northen refuted to enter into a formal interview upon tbe subject of the senatorship except to say that he hod decided that the man selected to succeed Senator Colquitt would have to entertain the same political viewa that Georgia had voted for, the free coinage of silver, the repeal of the 10 per cent. tax and other measures of financial relief. Her senator, therefore, should be a man who would stand squarely upon the democratic platform, without regard to the plans or wishes of President Cleveland. As soon ft* he learned that Speaker Crisp repudiated the veto measage of President Cleveland he decided that he was in the beat position to battle for Georgia's construction of the democratic platform. The appointment of Crisp i» made with the conviction that he will flght the administration followers with all the strength and energy he has. 11 m> Not Ileclded. WABUINGTOH, March SO. — Speaker Crisp authorizes a denial of the story that he has declined the senatorship. He says he has reached no conclusion as yet. The speaker, upon entering the house, received a most warm reception from the members on both sides and the spectators in the gallery. He bowed several times in response and then called the house to order in regular session. While Speaker Crisp as yet has reached no definite conclusion with reference to the appointment as United States senator tendered him by Gov. Northen, of Georgia, the chances are decidedly against his acceptance of the honor. The speaker feels that his presence is necessary in the house for the present. Representatives Durburow of Illinois and Cadmus of New Jersey have been circulating an address to Speaker Crisp asking him to decline the Georgia .senatorship. It is being signed by many democrats in the house. At 'J o'clock the speaker left the chair and . retired to Uis room for consultation with his friends. Mr. Crisp said just before the house convened that he thought he should decline the proffered senatorship. CrUp'a Career. IChurlos P. Crisp was born in SucffleW. England, on January », IMS.
