" * A. Miniature Cloud Hurst. A remarkable phenomenon was witnessed oi ) HarrUon street Friday nUernoon. About 3 o'clock a little thunder shower , or what up- peared to bo only a llttlu shower , pa sed north of the city. TUe cloud was not much larger than the flgur.itlvo "man's hand , " but it created considerable atmospheric disturb ance and was accompanied by a terrific roar ing. As far t'own tno street as Foster's greenhouse there VIM no rainfall nt all. The first Intimation the rc9ldont $ of the lower portion of the street had of any moisture in the vicinity was the ftppcarnnco of n solid wall of the liquid coming down the street , It was first observed by n pang of carpenters at worK on a new house n block from the end of the paving. They hastened down to get Lhclc tools nnd lumber from the street , but before they succeeded a river of water the full width of the street was ruxhlng by. Two feet back from the flrst advancing rlpplo the flood was six inches deep In the ccntorof the street , and at the sides it was overflow ing the curbing nnd spreading over the side- wulks. Such a vast body of water overflow- inif the dry nnd dusty paving presented a re markable phenomenon. It continued to run for-nearly three hours , nnd during the time a much larger quitntlty of water descended the street than during the heavy rain on Monday afternoon. It was evidently a miniature cloudburst o.r waterspout In the vicinity of Mynstor Sorlngs , nnd as tlio street drains the larger portion of the territory In that vlclnelty it was compelled to carry off the contents of the cloud. The ocxvcrs curried oft the water effectually , nnd no damage was done. S. B. Wndsworth & Co. loan money. The Silicon War Wnrmlnij , Up. Th'o war on the saloons iostitutcd by the Temperance league still continues. Friday warrants wore Issued from Justice Barnott's ofllce against Chris Hudio , 012 Broadway , and several vessels containing liquor confis cated. The Ued Front , nt 101 Main street , was nlso treated In the same manner. "John Doe" was the nnmo used in this case , the real name .of the proprietor not , being given. The naloan kept by Frank Dominlsso was- next visited and his wares destroyed. A warrant against , the Manhattan did not bear any fruit. It is a cigar store und bil liard hall , nnd though the proprietors for merly were dealers in wet coeds at another part of the city , nothing could bo ftuiid in their place this time in liquid form , except a tank of acceptable ice water. Yesterday morning the saloon In Lower Broadway , nearly opposite the waterworks pumping station , was raided , and n quantity of beer-secured. It is'statcd that tho'worlr will bo pushed vigorously on this line , and every saloon" in the city will bo visited. It is rumored that the localities of search will Rhortiybo extended , so'ns to take in districts not previously visited , nnd n vigorous cam paign will be opened up all along the lino.

N Forest Denizen * of All Sizes nml Do- BorljHloMB diwo Wltlilu tlio Grasp ot the Deadly Una Never Ittycnpo Aitvc. Another Yellowstone fnrk Wonder. The story of Dentil gulch and its ro- mnrknblo discovery SB told for the first time outside of the doparlniontixi'Wash ington by Ilonry W. Mclntyro , who ar- rlvnd hero a short tlmo ngo from Mon tana , says the San Francisco Examiner. Mr. Mclntyro has just completed n geological logical examination of this nature's wonderland for Arnold Ilngus , the emi nent geologist , in chat-go of the survey of tlio Yellowstone park. "I have been in Yellowstone park forever over two years now , " said Geologist Mclntyro , "nnd I have scon many str'nngo ' things there in that time , but perhaps the strangest of nil is an actual death gulch , where largo wild boasts , birds and insects liavo perished in at tempting to cross it. Mysolt and others of tlio survey discovered it on the 17th of last month , whllo completing our work. "Death gulch is a ghastly region , where poisonous gases cscapo in such quantities that they kill whatever they como in contact with. It is situated about fourteen miles south of the mail route from Lnmtir river to the llttlo mininir camp of Butte City , and is only about three miles from Soda Butte crook. sur/rnuiious onous. . "As you approach Death gulch the odor of sulphur becomes very notloo- nblo , and as you got near to it you cx- poi'ionco a decided irritation of the lungs. Tlio gulch ends in a 'scoop' about two hundred and fifty foot nbovo Cache crook , a phenomenal stream that winds its way over u bed ot natural glass. " "In th"e lower end of the depression which is a V-shapod trench about sov- onty-fivo foot deep , wo found the fresh body of n largo silver-tip grizzly. Beside - side him was a smaller boatof the same species in an advanced stajro ot decom position. Only a few feet away , and scattered at intervals , were the skele tons of live moro boars and the bones of an oik. , , , "This was not allthat , was discovered , however. In the , bottom of Iho poeKot were found the f psji remains of several rock hares , n number of squirrels , and other small animals. There wcro myr iads of dead bulterllics around , too , and a number of other mountain insects. NO MARKS OF IN.TUHY. "Wo looked the grizzlies over care fully , but could nbtnlind any bullet holes or other marks o'f injury. Thoro'wpro no marks of violence. The only thing was a few drops of blood on the nose of the moro recently doatl bear. "Thoro was it cinnamon bear about thirty feet awayjfrom him. on the other side of the gulclu The body was pretty far gone. The ctfreassos of the others wcro almost aonudca of flesh. "It was very plain from the smell of the gas about tlfat-"thoy had been as phyxiated , just as a man is in a room whore the gas is turned on. It smelt just Uko the gas from a defective pipe in the street , only stronger. Wo no ticed the elloct , and began to have a dull , heavy fooling , which we overcame at intervals by going up the sides of the depression for better nir. VA1UAULE DKNS1CNESS OF THE GAS. "It is a well-known fact that this gas lies close to the ground. A mAn walk ing across the gulch would not Icol the olfect half so much as a bear. But if ho stooped down or walked on all fours , then he would instantly notice the gas , and die in a mighty short timo. " .None of us ventured to go clear across on our hands nnd feot. We wore fully persuaded that wo could not stand it , out that , like the bears , wo would bo asphyxiated unless rescued by our com panions. "Wo were too much surprised and too much in awe of tlio horrible Death gulch to then muko all the tests wo could have done. Wo could , for in stance , have lighted a match and tested the qualities of the gas , but we were afraid. Wo thought it might burn up the region , or that there might bo an explosion. The matter so weighed upon us , however , that on the 20th ult. wo walked moro than fifteen miles back from our camp to take another look at the gruesome place. A STUUGGI.K FOR LIFE. "There was a deer in the gulch this time , and ho could not hnvo boon dead more than u day. From the dcop im prints of his feet in the bottom of the gulch it was evident ho hud floundered around in a vain attempt to got out. The body of the once-fresh grizzly had ad vanced in decomposition , and was slightly offensive. Some moro dead rock hares wore also found. "Tho gas , however , was not escaping so strongly as when we ; first discovered the placo. The exudations did not uf- sect us so much. Then wo tested the hollows for carbonic acid gas with lighted tapers , but there was not enough to catch lire. There was a strong wind prevailing at the timound thiB may liavo had something to < lo with it. Our labors were blown out and the gas , as YO.tbeliovo , was blown away. j r. i "There was still a strong smell of sulphur nnd a choking sensation of the lunge , howovert'C9pocinlly ' wnen wo stooped down. ' "From what we'1 saw wo were per suaded that the ' , gas cumo fortli in ir regular volumcp. J Sometimes there would bo a lot pft gas , and sometimes there would notlu ; nearly so much. "A visit to tlw grounds below the scoop , too , was productive of an impor tant dif < iovory. Wo found there uov- oral scattered rdAiMns of wild animals , which had evidently boon washed down the scoop by frekhats. Those frestiots occur over.v sm-iritf , and sometimes oftener , owing \ft the variableness of ' the season , andewh'on they como they carry everything before them. HUNDREDS OF THU8ANDS KILLED , "It was , therefore , highly probable , in fact , proved almost to a certainty , that this death gulch had boon filled and emptied time after time , through many years , perhaps reaching hundreds buck , for all wo Know , nnd occurring two or three times u year. " "What if a man , or crowd of men should huppon to cross it when the gcs is'us thick as it cotJd | boV Would they all die a horrible deaths' ' " "Lucidly tlio place lias hitherto boon far olT the trails of white in on. If any Indians over unwittingly ran into it ut uch times , they doubtless mot the fate of the wild unlmuls that have died there by hundreds. "Tho natural doalh * . gulch is a trap.

The water is clear and cold and perfectly sour with sulphuric acid. The slliclpus residue formed by the .decomposition of the rocks from acid vapors is the crook bod. This residue , hard and white , and look ing like glass , forms the sides in places as well as tlio bottom. When the- water is low , us it was when visited it , you can see the white sides nbovc. "Tho crock Hews down a narrow and steep channel , and part of the way cuts through a bank of sulphur and gravel , cemented by crystallimtravertine. . Then again it cuts a hard vocanlc rock , when more of the glassy coating is soon. It is a very tomnrknblo stream , and the dead geysers and living and extinct soda , and sulphur springs are ulso , but the queerest thing is the ghastly death trap , the story of which 1 have narrated. It is ono of the rarest phenomena of na ture. " Weekly nnnk Statement. New YOUK , July 13.
