REBUILDING JsTRICKEN TOWN
Residents of Buffalo Busy Repairing
Damage of Cloudburst.
DAMAGE QUARTER OF MILLION
Only Victim of Flood Loses Life lo
Savins; Sister and Babj
Woman May Yet Die
. from Exposure.
BUFFALO, Wyo'.7 June 13.-(Speclal
Telegram.) Men and won. en at Buffalo
today set about the task of rebuilding
their little .city .which was swept last
night by the raging waters of Clear
Creek, a mountain stream converted b
a cloudburst Into a torrent 200 yards in
width. ' .
Volunteers have been at work contin
uously for the last twenty-four hours
cleaning up the flood swept portion of
the city, embracing the business district
and the lower residence sections. From
twelve to eighteen Inches of mud and
debris covers everything.
This morning the town presented a scene
of destruction ' probably unparalled in
the history of Wyoming. Houses and
business blocks torn from their moorings
blocked the streets. Others hud disap
peared entirely .In. the heart, of the
city a mass of twisted iron and broken
concrete Is all that remains of the bridge
connecting the .north and south business
districts. A, great' jagged hole In the
rpar of . the Occidental hotel marks the
point of contact with the steam laundry,
which was carried by the rising waters.
Stephen Langworthy, vice president of
the Stock Growers bank, at Buffalo, de
clared ' a quarter of a million dollars
was a conservative estimate of the prop
erty loss. Ten and twenty thousand
dollar stocks of hardware and dry goods
are almost a total loss.
Ranchers .Heavy. Losers.
East of the city In -Clear Creek valley
many ranchers lost everything, houses,
barns and stock being swept away and
crops ruined. The cloudburst broke on
the divide between Clear creek and Sand
creek, several miles southwest of the
city. Buffalo only received the waters
of Clear creek directly. The Sand creek
flood joined the other torrent a mile be
low town and the waters were backed
up. on the main street of Buffalo by the
lodging of buildings and debris against
the bridge before the latter went out.
The funeral of Rodney Chllds. so far
as known the only victim of the flood,
win e . held . tomorrow-. His slhter. who
was rescued as she clung to the roof of
her home, may die from exposure.
A- relief fund of $1,000 has been raised
by the citizens of Sherldsn. Buffalo, one
of the oldest and most historical "cow
towns" of the west was visited by u
Similar disaster In 1S95.
The cloudburst was accompanied by a
terrific electrical storm that was felt
throughout this section of the state.
Four blocks" of business houses were
swept by the . flood. The Occidental
hotel on the verge of the creek was di
rectly In the path of the deluge, and
thousands of dollars worth of valuable
furnishings were destroyed. The floor
of the hotel building was carried six
feet above the foundation by the force
of the torrent. A two-story frame build
ing situated In the rear of the hotel and
used as a laundry . was totally wrecked
and the ruins carried down stream.
The stabies of the Buffalo Livery com
pany were demolished and slxteen: head
of horses drowned. The stable office -and
a millinery store, both frame struc
tures, were swept Intact along the sur
face of the creek. Half a dozen frame
dwellings south of the town have entirely
disappeared and no trace of them has
Hundreds of the 2.000 residents of the
town , had to flee for their lives . and
scores of thrilling rescues and narrow
escapes marked the brief . half hour lu
which the storm lasted.
Saves Sister, Lose Life.
It was In endeavoring to save the life
of his sister and her child that Rodney
Chllds. aged 30 years, loat his life. His
sister, whose life he saved, " became a
mother only three days ago.
Thirty minutes after the storm broke
the sun shone on the scene of terror and
desolation. Scores of people ran hys
terically through the street left passable,
looking for relatives and friends for whose
safety they feared.
TRENTON. Neh., June U.-(Special
Telegram.)-The country between' Max
and Stratton was the scene of a flood
tonight. The water in the west part of
Stratton wai eight feet deep on he low

M'KLNLEY CHARGES CORRUPTION
Roosevelt Leader Openly Talk of
Bolt, While Some DlsonRtou la
Heard of Compromise Mass
CHICAGO. June 13. -Apparent irrecon
cilability of the differences between the
Taft and Roosevelt loaders In the repub
lican party, borne on a rising tide of
charges of bribery, theft and other ac
cusations, tonight threatened to pre-
I cipitate decisive developments before the
opening of the national convention next
The charges of corruption were made In
an open statement given to the press
tonight by Director McKinley of the Tsft
bureau which directly accuses the Roose
velt managers of an effort to capture
the convention by force.
After allusion to Roosvelt's possible
arrival, late tonight after repeated con
ferences, the Roosevelt leaders an
nounced that the mass meeting set for
Friday afternoon had been postponed to
Monday night. No reason was given for
this change in the date of holding the
Roosevelt demonstration. There was con
siderable speculation aa to Just why the
date had been changed to the night be
fore the formal opening of the con
tlon. Prominent men on both sides tonight
admitted the situation had become so
acute that almost anything might happen
within the next few days. Among pos
sibilities discussed In conference rooms,
hotel corridors and party headquarters
were two that continued to come up
again and sgaln.
M" Talk of Bolt.
The first of these was the possibility
of a bolt by the Roosevelt forces and
the organization of a "progressive" party
If President Taft Is to be renominated.
The bolt talk was ever present during
the day and once In a meeting of Roose
velt leaders rose to a point where Wil
liam Fltnn of Pittsburgh, who was pre
elding, refused to let it go further.
The second possibility, and this seemed
to hold the center of the stage tonight,
was that of a compromise on a third can
didate. A number of the leaders declared
that now it was positively beyond ques
tion to expect either the Taft or Roose
velt people to abide by the nomination
of the others' candidate.
The situation was crystallzed to great
degree by the action of the natjonal com
mittee In the contt hearings, particu
larly the California case, during the day.
RooBavelt meii ln!sUJ that ihey could
expect nothing for their candidate ai
the hands of the ruling Taft majority In
the national committee and criticised
the work of that body with increasing
Rooeevelt's Coming Dlsroaaed.
The question of whether Colonel Roose
velt would come to Chicago and what
effect his coming would have upon the
tense situation, came up at almost every
turn of the endless discussions and ar
guments. Nearly all agreed that the
arrival of Colonel Roosevelt would
bring the situation to an Immediate focus
but the final outcome of sucti an event
The states that loomed large in the cal
culations of the Roosevelt leaders tn case
of a bolt were California, Oregon, Kansas,
Nebraska, Pennsylvania, .New ...Jersey,
West Virginia, South Dakota, Minnesota.
Wisconsin and North Dakota. Several
other states ware named, but the former
president's campaign chiefs seemed to
get greater satisfaction out or their sur
vey of those listed.
The third candidate talk Included Cum
mins, La Follette and then went on to
the much debated "dark horse" possibil
ity. A dozen names ,Vere mentioned In
the latter connection, but there was no
unanimity of opinion among the leaders
In this regard.
Early In the evening .Director McKin
ley Issued a long statement which, after
claiming that Taft would be nominated
on the first ballot, charged that the
Roosevelt forces were planning "more
desperate measures to prevent the In
evitable." "The effort to corrupt Taft delegates
to the Chicago ponvention," said the
statement, "has been under way for
several weeks. It Is common knowledge
that seven weeks ago money was aent
to' two Taft Instructed delegates In a
certain southern states by telegraph by
a well known Roosevelt leader now in
'Within the last two weeks two men
sent from New York to a southern state
have brazenly approached Taft delegates
with offers of money In return for votes
for Roosevelt. Other agents on a sim
ilar mission have made their appear
ance in several .state recently.
'That a well defined effort Is on foot
to buy the president nomination for
Theodore Roosevelt is beyond question'
The statement then charges that a
plan Is on foot to Influence the local
police with a view to packing the con
vention hall with non-ticket holders and
to perpetrate In the hall a system of
Intimidation and terrorism, which
might easily culminate In a full fledged
"A plain campaign lie," was Mr.
Dixon's retort, to the McKinley state
ment and refused to discuss it further.
Later in the evening the Roosevelt
committee phrased Its opinion of the
national committee action In today's
contests in a long statement The Michi
gan case was characterized as "one of
the most outrageous attempts at strong
arm tactics perpetrated by the Taft
forces In a campaign marked by ruth
less disregard of justice and fair deal
ing on their part
"The rape of California" was the key
phrase of the Roosevelt statement on
the committee's action In the Fourth
California district contest
