Over a largu share of this exclusive
residence territory the water rushed
with terrific force, varying in depth
fromormto six feet. Culverts, tres
tles and bridges wcro torn down nnd
for hours nothing seemed capable of
stemming the tide of destruction.
Hundreds of residents who were im
prisoned in their beautiful homes like
stranded islanders were almost panic

to wade out into "the swirling waters

were flashed about the city as speedily

chickens will bo found this year than
in any years past. Tills is the almost
universal opinion expressed by corre

. Tho reason advanced in the majority

extreme dry weather of tho present

breeding of the birds. Hunting parties
arj quite frequent in tltat section.

it has been accvtalucd that on Au
gust si, during Secretary Hay's recent,
visit to Washington, a telegraphic, mes
sage was sent to the ministers lit Car
acas and Itogota, directing them to in
form tin- foreign secretaries of Vene
zuela aud Colombia of thcillstress with
which tin- president had heard of tho
likelihood of a disturbance lietwi-en
those two republics.
Adverting to the responsibility of
the United' Stntcs being 'exerted to
compose tho pending questions, thu
ministers have directed to say that,
while the relations of this government
with both uallous aru equally intimate
ami friendly nnd every opportunity Is
taken to show thu good will wu bear
them, au offer of tin- president's kindly
otllces to arrange any differences which
tuny exist between Colombia and Ven
ezuela would bo Ineffective without the
acqulcsence of both. Nevertheless, In
spired by the sentiments which are
common to all the govern ments of the
American i-epu biles, the United States
would sincerely deplore a breach of the
amicable relations that at this time
happily exist between the sister na
tions of the western world, and would
especially regret any action by either
of them which might menace tho se
curity tif transit, across the isthmus of
the neutrality of its territory anil
thereby constrain the government, of
the United States to consider Its re
sponsibilities and functions under ex

not been made public. It is under
stood that au acknowledgment ot its
receipt has been mado by thu Venezue
lan government, but its purport, has
not been made known, although it is
said to lie friendly iu tone, and while
charging invasion by Colombian forces
on the Venezuelan border nml refer
ring to tho temporary suspension of
diplomatic Intercourse which lias oc
curred, the way appears to be open for
explanations. Venezuela has not de
clared war against Colombia. No ac
knowledgment lias been received from
Hogota, but this is supposed Io-Im; duo
to tho reported delays in telegraphic
communication bet weed Hogota and
end the coast stations.
Colombia, also, It in said, has made
response to tho notu of Secretary Hay.
While its contents aru not obtainable,
tho statement is made thnt it is concil
iatory in character and expresses an
earnest wish that war with Venezuela
may be avoided. Such a result, it is
stated, would lie a cause of genuine
regret to tin? people of Colombia. Col
