turned from Heppner at t o'clock this
morning. He left the scene of the disaster
at 6 last night.
' '.'It Is now known," said Mr. Conner,
hat at least 275 or 800 people were
drowned. 115 corpses having been hastily
buried In wooden boxes and some were
merely wrapped In blankets. There were
still several wagonloada . of dead on their
way to the cemetery when I left. Heppner
Itself has now been pretty well searched,
except In piles of debris, where It Is thought
great numbers of bodies will be found."
"Between Iono and Heppner," said Mr.
Conner, "there are great plies of debris, but
the flood passed so quickly that the roads
have not been seriously damaged. The rail
road track, however, from Lexington on
Is badly torn up. It looks strange to see
the heavy steel rails bent and ,'wlsted like

"The rain was not falling In Heppner,
but could be seen some distance away.
Sharp flashes ot lightning were accompa
nied by howling thunder. Then suddenly
the thunderstorm died away and left an
ominous silence. Then a low, rumbling
noise was heard, very faint at first, but
growing louder. .
"The city is situated on Willow creek,
which makes a sharp turn above the city.
As the noise grew louder and louder, the
people became frantic. But In a moment
the van of the flood burst Into vtew around
the curve of the creek, carrying In Us

transformed Into a roaring torrent, 400 feet
wide and twenty feet deep. Houses were
lifted from foundations and carried on the

of the flood. People were caught In their

he left Heppner about 10:30 o'clock Sunday
night on horseback.
- "On Sunday afternoon," said Mr. McAtee,
"there had been a pretty sever rain storm,
accompanied with much wind and lightning.
I was standing In front of the house and
noticed that a cloud of remarkable demo
ness shrouded the top of the hill on the east
side of the canyon. I turned for a moment,
when a roar caused roe to look again at the
hill. I saw a wall of water, whose height
I would be afraid to gauge, rushing .down
the mountain, carrying immense trees and
timber on its crest and tearing the very
rocks from their foundations.

also every person was drowned, as was
the case in the Hale and Baling residences."

All of these houses were about four or
five blocks a Dove the business center. The
residence of Abraham Hamslck wes en

Treaty 1 In Donbt.
Additional advices coming to the State

ing prospects of the ratification of the

so conflicting as to leave the officials here
in donbt as to the outcome. It is believed
the weight of opinion In Colombia is averse
to the ratification. The sentiment favoring
ratification seems to be confined principally
to the three provinces of Panama, Cauca
nd Aritloqula, which make up the Isthmus
of Panama proper. The states In the inte

directly benefited by the ..development of

tlcally complete In Its commercial features,
but that the deadlock Is over the opening
of Moukdon and other port In Man

There Is much comment tonight upon the
testimony offered by the defense, especially
that of Judge llnrgls and Sheriff Callahan,
who were standing across the street when
Marcum was killed. While the witnesses
yesterday consisted of the defendants
themselves and their friends, those today
Consisted of the relatives, employes and
close friends' of leaders of the Hargls fac
tion and the drift of all v.hb to prove an
alibi for, the prisoners.
When the common wen Hli dosed its testi
mony last week It was announced that It
was because some of Its witnesses could
not be found, among them John Smith and
John Abner, charged with being In th con-!
splracy with the dof?ndants to get Marcum
out of the way. The troops chased all over
the mountains to find these witnesses for
the prosecution, but In vain. Consequently
It was the more noticeable that these same
men were on hand for the defense today of
their own accord and denied emphatically
the statements In the affidavits of Marcum
and Mose Feltner regarding plots and ef
fort to ret Marcum out of the way.
The defense today placed Dr. J. M. Kash
on the stand. He testified that he saw Jett
on the nlk at the corner of the court
house ten seconds before the shots were

County Judge James Harris, an uncle of

WASHINGTON, June 14. Th weather
bureau's weekly crop review says:
The week ending June IS was sbnormally
cool in nearly nil district east of the Kocky
mountains, the minimum temperatures
from the loth to the 13th throughout the
central valleys and the southern stittos. be
ing the lowest record of the second decade
of June, and heavy frosts were of general
occurrence Ir the upper Missouri valley,
with light frosts as fur south aa Tennessee.
I'nder these conditions the growth of veg
etation ha been slow, but with an absence
of rain or light local showers. In the cen
tral valleys, much needed cultivation has
oiHoe favorable progress.
Generally favorable condition prevailed
on the Pacific coast, except during the early
part of the week In Washington, where dry
ing northerly winds proved Injurious In
some sections. The week waa unseasonably
warm In the eastern portions of Oregon and
W aldington and la Idaho and Northern Ne
vada. While planting replanting and cultivation
or coin In the central vailevs have been
vigorously pushed, cohsiderabfe planting re
mains unfinished In- the northern district.
Corn Is unusually late and has made verv
slow growth under th low temperatures of
the past week.
Winter wheat harvest progresses as far
north as southern portions of Kansas. Mis
souri, Illinois. Indiana and Virginia. While
an Improvement In the condition of this
crop Is Indicated in northern Illinois. Ohio,
and over the northern portions of the mid
dle Atlantic states, It has suffered deteri
oration over a large part of the winter
wheat belt as a result of Insects and In
In California th crop Is maturing
rapidly and harvest In In nrnrress In t ha
southern portion, with heavy yields. In
Oregon and Washington winter wheat is
heading- short, but with gooor heads. The
crop wns threatened by hot drying winds In
vvasningion aunng ine latter part ot the
week, but escaped with slight Injury.
Spring wheat is generally thriving. Im
provement Is shown in Oregon, but In
Washington It has experienced trvln ron-
aiuons, Minougn apparently not seriously

LINCOLN, June 16. (Special, i-'i he sum
mary of crop reports received at the cen
tral office of the climate, and crop service
of the Weather bureau for the week end
ing June IE Is:
The last week has been cool and dry.
The dally mean temperature has averaged
11 degrees below normal In eastern counties
and logrees below In western. Light
frosts occurred In lowlands quite generally
on the fHh, 10th or 11th; no Injury resulted
except In a few places In northern counties
corn and garden vegetables were slightly
The rainfall .the last week has been light,
generally less than a quarter of an Inch.
Th last week has been favorable for the
growth of small grain. Winter wheat in
eastern counties Is rusting considerably
and some fields are heading unevenly. Oats
and spring wheat have grown well and
continue very promising. Planting, re- j
planting and cultivation of corn have pro
gressed rapidly during the week; planting
la about completed, although some low
land 1b still too wet to work. Most of the
early planted Corn has been cultivated, but
many fields are still weedy; the condition
of corn han Improved, although It has been
too cool for this crop to grow well. Pota
toes are generally very promising. Cher
ries are beginning to turn and will be a
very small crop. First crop of alfalfa la
being cut and the crop Is generally below
normal, having been damaged by wet
weather.' Light c shower would be bene
ficial In all seotlons, as the soil has become
dry and crusted on the surface.
DES MOINES, June 18. Crop bulletin for
week ending June IS, 1903:
The past week was cooler than usual,
tho dally mean temperature for the state
ranging from eight to ten degrees below
normal. There .was about the normal
amount ot sunshine, with but little
precipitation In form of light local showers.
In view of the previous saturated condition
of the soil, the weather conditions of the
weak were altogether mora favorable than
would have been a sudden chnnze to hot
and dry weather, resulting In encrusting
the surface. The low temperature was
favorable for oats and spring wheat, check
ing the tendency to rankness of growth
end damage by rust, and these crops are
generally doing fairly well.
Work In tho corn fields has been vigor
ously carried on, in planting, replanting
and cultivating. In numerous localities
farmers were cultivating the second time,
while In the same vicinity planting was
being done in fields previously too wet. The
weather has been too cool for quick ger
mination and rapid growth of corn, but
the crop has shown a fair measure of Im
provement within the last few days. Th
work of finishing planting Is likely to be
condition till the 20th; but with the beat
condition the usual acreage will not be
planted. The hay crop is likely to b a
record breaker, and In a few localities hay
making operations have been commenced.
Th apple crop still gives promise of a
