A htirrlcffof Denver 8 xlety.
Denver, Aug. 29. The 6heriff of this
county arresed Albert B. Maynea ami
his wife Minnie on a ranch about forty
miles from this place and they were
brought to Denver and lodged in jaiL
The charge placed opposite their nstnea
U murder. Maynes is a lum'jer mer
chant of this city and was married to his
wife January 1 last In March, Mra.
Maynes, being in a delicate condition,
went to Madame Astle, the abortiouust,
who is under arrest and was delivered of
twins which we re placed in a e'ove and
roasted before the husband's eyes while
they were still alive. The police eay
that this so prejed on the mind of My
nes that he made a full confession to
them of the awful crime. Mrs. Maynes
who is a very pretty young woman
does not seem worried about the mat
ter, however, but will not talk to re
porters concerning it. The police are
after other married people on the samo
charge, and say that am sts will follow
thick and fast and that before the mat
ter is through with there will be such
a stirring up of Denver society as never
was dreamed of. Madame A: t'e says
that if some one don't come to her aid
and get her out of this trouble that she
will tell alJ she knows, which 6he says
is a great deal. Complaints have been
made against prominent cflijials in
some of Colorado's smaller cities, and
they will probably be brought into the

Tboy, N. Y., Aug., Til There was a
cloudburst m the mountains near Sund
Lake about 2 o'clock Friday afternoon
and the damage resulting was '.he
heaviest that has ever visited this vicin
ity from such a cause. The heavy rain
fall of the last two days has swollen the
mountain streams that enter into Glass
house lake into torrents. The lake rose
rapidly, but no fears were entertained
until the cloudburst occurred, Then
the heavens seemed to open up and the
rain came down- in sheets of water.
Nothing like it had ever been ex
perienced and for several hours the
stoma did not abate n particle, but
seemed rather to increase.
Whether any one has been drowned
by the deluge can not be determined,
although several are missing. That a
flood of such seriousness aa this could
occur and no li es 1 e lost is almost im
possible. It ifi expected that when
communication is restored thro will be
reports of missing people. The damage
is probably $100,000. The cutting away
of the mountain forests is largely re
sponsiole for this and similar floods.
4 Hlomly Tragedy.
Georgetown, Ky., Aug. 29. For sev
eral weeks there has been 1 rouble be
tween the Kendall and Jarvia families,
which culminated in a bloody tragedy.
There had been severe quarrelling the
last, few days over the robbing of a
watermelon patch. Peace warrants
were sworn out and the trial set. . Yes
terday M. H. Kendall and four sons
came to town, armed with rifles and re
volvers. The three Jarvis brothers also
came, only one being armed. About
9 o'clock Milt Kendall, jr., coming up
behind John Jarvis shot him in tho
back, killing him instantly. His brother
Burrell Jarvis, ran into the hardware
store of A. J. Montgomery and asked
for a gun. Milt Kendall, the father,
rushed in after him and fired a shot
which entered Montgomery's breast and
kiiled him. Burrell Jarvis jumped
through a rear window, but Kendall
followed him and shot him down with a
revolver, inflicting a mortal wound.
Montgomery was in no way connected
with the trouble. He was a prominent
and worthy citizen and leaves a large
family. The Kendalls afterwards sur
rendered and are now in jail.
Philadelphia, Aug. 29. L'zzie Wil
son, aged thirty-two years, living at No
1507 Fourth Front street, poisoned her
self and her illegitimate child yester
day. The babe was dead when the
couple were found, but the mother
lingered several hours before death en
sued. The woman before her death
made a statement in which she said a
man named Kantz was the father of
the child, and his persistent refusal to
marry her caused her to commit the
terrible deed. The wrongs of the wo
man had so preyed on her mind as to
cause her to become insane. While in
this condition she gave her babe arsenic
and took a dose herself. Kantz has

St. Petersburg, Aug. 29. The town
of Moscow is considering a proposition
to compel all employers to furnish their
workmen with rye bread at the normal
cost, or about one-half of the present

Walter Miller, aged twenty-four, were
unable to get off in time, and as it fell

and hurried to them they found that
Minnicks had been instantly killed, and
Miller seriously injured. The latter

San FnANcistx), Ajig. 29. The Chron
icle's Ounalaska advices note the de
parture of the United States commis
sioners from Alaska waters and states
that the British commissioners before
leaving intended visiting the islands
north of the Pribiloy croup, the object
being to ascertain as nearly as possible
the range of the fur seal in Bebring sea.
The advicos et ate that the persistence
with which the English commission la
seeking informrtion leads to a belief
than an effort will be made to break
down the theory advanced by the
American authorities that the Pribiloy
group is tbe home of the seal and that
the animal belongs more to the land
than to the sea. A list of sixty-one
vessels and their catch up to August 10
is given. The number of sella caught
was 27,000. Twenty-four British and
eight American vessels had not been
boarded up to that time and their catch
had not been ascertained. The corres
pondes' says the sealers conceded that
this number does not represent more
than C2 per cent of the total number of
seals destroyed up to date this season

that a real live wolf roams ot large in

noon one trotted along the Bowery just
along Houston Htrt-et. It is believed
that he is prowling around yet, or that
he has been picked up by some shirp

offer of a reward. If any one has tho
wolf Superintendent Conklin of the
Central park menagerie would like to

Cwcao. Aug. 23. A Chicago genius
named Uathmaa has a plan for produc
ing rin by the use of carbonic acid gas.
His plan is to explode cylindrical shells
filled with the gun at a distance of four
to dve thousand feet above the earth.
The throwing off of such a tremendous
amount of carbolic acid gas at the low
est possible degree of temperature
would produce a very huge cloud, says
Gathuian. Bung heavier than the sur
rounding air it would descend at the
same time enlarging and accumulating
moisture. This would continue until
the cloud became so heavy that percipi
tatfon would result aud a gladsome
shower would follow.
