WeUiagtoa states that the dam was ia
reiy respect of inferior coasUaetionane
of a kind wholly unwarranted by food
engiaeeriag- practices of thirty years ago.
Both the original and reconstructed
asms were or earth only with
no heart walL fcnt ml n-nl-.nn
om the slope. The original dam,
boasBTer, was made in rammed and
watered layers, which still showed dis
tinctly in the wrecked dam. It was
better than the new and greatly
added to its stability, but it was
to all appearance simply dumped in
like an ordinary railroad fill, or. if
rammed, shows no evidence of good effect
from it. Much of the old part is standing
intact, while adjacent parts of the new
work are wholly carried off. There was
no central wall of puddle or masonry
either in the new or old dam. It has been
the invariable practice of engineers for
thirty or forty years to use one or the
otfar in building high danis of earth. It
is doubtful if there is a single other dam or
reservoir in any other part of the United
States of over fifty feet high which lacks
this cential wall. The reconstructed dam
also bears the marks of great ignorance
or carelessness in having been made
nearly two feet lower in the middle than
at the end. It should rather have been
crowned in the middle which would have
concentrated the overflow, if it should
occur, at the ends instead of the center.
Had the break bejrun at the ends, the cut
of the water would have been so gradual
that l.ttle or no harm might have resulted.
Had the dam been at once cut at the ends
when the water began running over the
center the sudden break of the dam would
have been at Ieat great'y diminished,
pos-ibly prolonged, so that little harm
would have resulted. The crest of the old
dam bad not been raised in the reconstruc
tion of 1SSL
Wellington aid that no engineer of
known and good standing fcr such work
could possibly have been engaged on it,
since in the particulars mentioned it vio
lated the most elementary and universally
understood requirements of good prac
tice. He did not believe that any other
dam of equal height hid ever been con
structed in this country wholly of earth
without -o:ne kind of special protection
against leakage or abrasion by water in
the center of the dam. The estimates of
the original dam indicated that it was
made of about half earth and half rock,
but if so there was little evidenc: of it in
the broken dam. The riprapping was
merely a skin on each face, with more or
less loose spauls mixed with the earth.
The dam was 72 feet above the water. 2 to
1 inside slope, 1J to 1 outside slope,
20 feet wide on top. The rock through
out -was about one foot below the
surface. The earth was pretty good
material for such a dam if it was to be
built at all, being of a clayey nature, mak
ing geod puddle. To this the fact of its
standing intact since 18-S1 must be as
cribed, as no engineer of standing would
have ever tried to so construct it The
fact that the dam was a reconstructed one
after over twenty years' abandonment
made it especially hard on the older part
of the dam to withstand the pressure of

The body of Rev. AlonzoP. Diller. rector
of the Johnstown Episcopal Church, and
those of his wife and child were recovered
yesterday under circumstances both sad
and strange. Four Episcopal clergymen,
who bad been sent here by BUhop
Whitehead, were working about the ruins
near Lincoln street, when they came upon
the body of their late brother. Ciasped
in one rigid arm was the body of bis babe
and in the other his wife, whose arms
were about his neck. They were removed
in this position and will be so taried to
day, the Episcopal clercymen officiating.

Mr. and Mrs. Rodgers war awakeaed
by the sudden entrance into the room of a
man from the oatside. Springing from
bad Mr. Rodgars found himself confront-

at n glance the character of the intruder
and started to grapple with him, followed

they closed in on him, tha ball taking ef

A fierce struggle ensued, in which all
three took part. Several shots were fired
by tha desperado as his wrist was held
tightly by Mr. Rodgers. One of these took
effect in Rogers' left arm and another in
the center of the abdomen. A third bul
let entered the burglar's left band.
Rodgers got the revolver away from
the burglar and struck him
over the head with it. The prisoner begged
piteously to be allowed to go and was at
last permitted to escape, his captors being
to weak to continue the struggle longer.
He jumped to the porch, slid down one of
the pillars, leaving blood stains on the
wood, and ran for life, leaving a trail of

Within an hour 2,03 people were scour
ing the country for the robber. At six
o'clock a young man, about nineteen years
of age, having a wound in his hand and
answering the description, was arrested
and taken to the prison. Immediately
G.0u0 people congregated about the
prison, and but for the fact that there was
some uncertainty alout the identity of
the prisoner the officer could not have held
him. There is little doubt, however, that
he is the right man.
The man gave his name as 2?at Oliphant,
and said he had just been put off a freight
train bv the train bands. On the left side
of bis forehead were two fresh cuts as if
made with a Hunt instrument. Ha wora
his Vat so that the wounds were not visible
until it was removed. His right hand
showed evidence of having been lately
bitten, and there were the imprints of
teeth on two of his fingers. In his pockets
were found two watches, a number of
rings and a breastpin which has been
identified as the one taken from F. Cook's
house at the corner cf Fifth and Buchanan
streets Monday night. The Cook house is
near the Rcd;ers homestead.
The prisoner said the wounds he tore
were inflicted by a brakemau who helped
to put him off the train. The brakeman
has been telegraphed at Kansas City re
carding the matter. The man first said
he lived in Colorado, but told others that
Indiana was his home. He was taken to
the county j il and Mary Klinkerman. the
servant at the Rodgers house, was sent for.
In the meantime news of the tragedy
had spread through the city and an im
mense crowd gathered in front of the jsiL
When the Swedish cirl drove up in com
pany with the sheriff the excitement be
came intense. The girl was conducted
into the jail and the man Oliphant was
brought before her. "That's the man,"
she said emphatically and without tha
slightest sign of doubt;
Topeka. Kan.. JuaeS. Daring the after
noon the crowd in front of the jail in
creased, but no demonstrations were made.
The hoodlum element was entirely absent.
Lawyers, merchants, bankers and other
business men gathered in knots and dis
cussed the situation and the unanimous
opinion was that the wretch ought to
hang. The idea that he might be inno
cent was scouted from the moment the
servant girl identified Oliphant as the
Seven o'clock found 2.000 men in front
of the jaiL An hour later this number
had doubled. Soon after eight o'clock a
large part of the crowd marched to Metro
politan ball, where speeches in favor of
lynching the murderer were loudly ap
Sledge hammers were brought and after
some energetic pounding the jail was
forced open and the prisoner waa in the
hands of the mob.
Through the streets Oliphant was
dragged, the rope not yet encircling his
neck. The First National Bank occupies
a commanding posit. oa on Kansas and
Six'h avenues and to the entrance to this
building the condemned man was led. Ail
alone the route the shouting continued,
and.by the time the prisoner reached the
bank steps- there must have been S.0CC
people facing him. It waa the
most thrilling spectacle ever wit
nessed in tae West. A hush settled
over all as the prisoner straight
ened up and faced his accusers. He
wants to pray," shouted a man. Oliphant
did not rraJt DU to a reporter who stood
at his side he said: "I am guilty. I shot
Mr. Rodgers and his wife, but I did it in
self defense. My name is Nat. C Oliphant,
I came here from Newton. I had two ac
complices last night, who were from Kan
sas City. I am willing to d.e, but I wish
thy would hanc me from the State House
60 that my ncfc would be broken."
This was all the condemned man had to
say and the mob recommenced clamoring
for his blood.
In a twinkling the murderer was jerked
to the ground. The ever ready rope was
placed about his neck and the crowd
surged toward an electric light pole
standing near. Two men climbed to the
cross trees with the bight of the rope. It
was adjusted a moment later and before
they could descend the body of Oliphant
shot upward and met them. They
scrambled to the ground and as they
cleared the pole a pistol shot was heard.
Oltphant's arms swayed slightly and
his legs drew up several times. Then he
was quiet, and the light shining in hit
face showed that he was dead. The mo
ment that his form was seen against the
pole the crowd gave a cheer and then sub
sided into silence, and not until the body
had hung fifteen minutes did the uproar
break out again.

making the most remarkable showing
perhaps, for the sansoa in the history of
Reports now ia from about 900 corres
pondents, repretenting 10S oat of the 106
counties in the 8tate, indicate an unusu
ally good condition of crone ceamHj'
thronghont the State. The weather eon
ditioas have been pre-eminently favor
able to the development of the
wheat, as well as to the growth of rye,
oats and barley, while the growth et com
has been retarded somewhat ty excessive
rains and cool weather. The agriculteral
conditions generally throughout the State
are excellent at this date, and the pros
pects for abundant harvests in nil crops
could not be more encouraging.
Winter Wheat The area as estimated
by the correspondents of this board in the
March report was 1,333,979 acres from the
abstracts of assessors' returns already in,
and special reports of county clerks, kind
ly furnished at our request, we find this
estimated too low by about 175,000 acres.
A few counties are yet to be beard from.
Enough, however, is known to warrant us
in placing the total area for the State in
round numbers at 1.500,000 acres. The
probable product per acre for the State is
placed by our correspondents at 22.52
bushels, a fraction higher than the aver
age product in 182, which was the high
est in -the history of the State. This aver
age per acre gives a total wheat product
for the State this year of 33.780,000 beth
els, or an excess of 17,644, &5J bushels above
that of last year.
Spring Wheat The area as estimated
by our correspondents in a previous re
port is 54 920 acres, and from the abstracts
of county cleiks now in we are warranted
in saying that tha actual acreage re
turned by the township assessors will not
be less than that amount. The plant is
generally iu excellent condition and
promises a full crop.
Core The acreage as estimated by our
correspondents is 4 per cent greater than
that of last year, making a total area of
7,265, 658 acres. The s and is good, only a
fraction over 1 per cent, is reported as
having failed to grow. The wet and cold
weather has retarded the growth of the
plant, however, as the important matter
at th.s date is to secure a good stand. The
prospect for the crop, exeept where ex
cessive raics have interfered with its
cultivation or rendered replanting neces
sary, is entirely satisfactory through
every section of the State. It seems to be
entirely free from insect depredations.
Oats Oats in a few of the eastern coun
ties are reported damaged to some extent
by chinch bugs, but generally throughout
the State they are in excellent condition
and in many places promise extraordinary
Rye Rye is reported a good crop. The
average product per acre is estimated at
twenty bushels for the State.

Rainfall and Chinch Bugs. With the
exception of the extreme fouthwest por
tion of the State our correspondents re
port rain6 abundant in some sections ex
cessive for the month of May; and the
weather being cool, the conditions were
not only highly favorable to a vigorous
growth of cereals, but in aa eminent
degree favorable to the desti action of
chinch tugs which in the early spring,
probably because of the mild winter, were
exceedingly numerous. Without this
providential interference the damage mast
have been immense. As it was, in some
localities wheat and oats were seriously
hurt. The crisis however, seems to be
passed. The old bugs which have done
the damage, after depositing their eggs
seem to have filled their mission and died,
and the yonng broods are reported either
dead or in a dying condition. Enough,
however, are likely to survive to be the
source of much anxiety and loss before
the corn crop is made.
Lard Tank Explosion.
Hctchlnsox. Kau., June I Shortly
after ten o'clock yesterday morning while
General Manager Woods, of the N. K.
Fairbauk & Co. lard refinery, and George
D. Lewis, superintendent of the same
company's refinery at St Louis were
testing the heat of a lard tank an explo
sion occurred which seriously injured the
two men and a steamfitter named
John Gavin. They were standing directly
over the vat when it exploded, and were
thrown to the ceiling above and covered
with the boiling-hot lard. Lewis in ad
dition to being badly scalded, bad his
ankle bone fractured and received two
dangerous wound about the head. Phy
sicians, however, think there are chances
of his recovery. The injuries of the
others, while serious and exceedingly
paintul, are not considered fatal. The ac
cident is supposed to have been due to an
over pressure of steam.

THE TYPICAL CLUB-MAN.
e Is Tolerant Bare ass He Ia h
Earnest Aaeat Nothing.
The typical club-man is tolerant be
cause he is in dead earnest about nothing-.
If there were any thing that
could arouse him to a lively activity,
it would be his own comfort; but as his
own comfort consists so largely in be
ing placid and unexcited, it follows
that he is defeating his own ends when
he actively defends even his own inde
pendence and will. This is, of course,
the fault of the age as well as of the
individual, but it comes to life in club
life as it does nowhere else. There
are a great many men who find in club
life the comforts which would be be
yond their means in their own homes,
who are able on a given income to live
far more luxuriously with the aid of
these institutions than they could in
any other way. It has been said that
this fact hinders marriages, and very
likely this is true.
Men who are accustomed to having
things to suit them in a club, and who
are not able to keep up an establish
ment, naturally think a great deal be
fore they give up the comforts they
have for the doubtful blessings of a
home which must be managed on an
economical basis. This view of life
may be selfish.but it is undoubtedly the
one taken by many of our marriageable
men, and it is difficult to see how it
is to be changed. Men belong to one or
several clubs, which have a restaur
ant; they get for a moderate sum a
capital dinner, with the best of com
pany, varied from day to day. and
when they contrast this with a dinner
of herbs in their own home, they do
not always find the prospect suffi
ciently alluring to take the risk. "I
would like to be married,' a man said
in my hearing, not long since, "but I
am more fond of good dinners and good
company that I am of domesticating,
and I've concluded to worry along with
my clubs." The melancholy part of
it comes when the men are getting
along in life.
Then many of their friends have
married and have homes of their own.
and little by little the club seems to
lose its delights. The lonely bachelor
somehow finds himself stranded, and
wishes he had made a different decis
ion long years before. 1 won a certain
amount of approval in a discussion of
this sort once by laying down the
principle, that while a man might
manage to have a more lively, and
more agreeable time remaining single
until he was forty, the trouble is, that
when he is forty, he finds that he
should have been married ten years.
