The river rose to the top of the canal and run over. The earth at the entrance of the canal gave way and lei the water rush through with tremeudous energy, tearing out the high canal bank next to the river and letting the current through. The gap widened and every- thing went down before the flood. One aecot*nt has it that expensive dynamos for developing 250 horse power were swept away, buT this is not exactly tbe fact. One dynamo on the bank and a steam farm houses have been carried away and stock has suffered severely. NORTHERN \1\. CONFERENCE. The session of the conference at Rome the past week has proved a very important and interesting one, many of the most prominent Methodist workers in tbe coun- try being present and making addresses ; on various topics. Bishop Walden, of j Cincinnati, presided, and the conference engine and derrick used in construction , ' , - tolled , into Jhejopd and were bad!y | organized by electing Rev. C. damaged.

Y. at $25,000 to $100,000, About five hun- dred Italian laborers employed at-- the works attempted to close the entrance to the canal, but the river, which is nearly a mile wide there, continued to rise and to bafBe tfcern. Another account of the disaster states that the canal was about 30 feet wide at the bottom some 2,790 feet from the village-of Han- nawa at. an incline of about TO feet. At the lower portion was a huge bulkhead connected to the main land by a stone wail 12 feet wide an3 80 feet long. Below this was the nearly completed power j bouse\. When the earth gave way tbe » water came down upon the bulkhead i ; with a 30-foot head and destroyed tbe , wire screens protecting the flumes. The extending from tbe land to tbe bulk- head then gave way and the water made a clean sweep of the power bouse, destroy- ng the two end walls and injuring the side walls\ badly: but according to this account no machinery had yet been placed in the building, which is probably correct, as the power bouse was still unfinished. Large portions of the banks of the canal were completely carried away. The work- men were finally obliged to give'up the attempt to stay the flood through the canal by placing timbers between piers at the head, but the attempt was resumed la- ter and the increasing damage was stopped. The Salmon river, running through this village, never was known to go so high at this point except when blocked with ice. It took out the east side of the dam of the old paper mill and a part of the canal bank there. The new company, which expected to begin paper-making by water power last Thursday, will now be delayed about three weeks, until an engine ar- rives and is set up. They had intended to purchase an engine, so as not to be obliged to close down in extremely low water, and they felt much better to have tbe dam break before starting than later Walkover Shoes areTiow made for ladies as well as lor gentlemen at $3.50 a pair.

It is reported that an indictment has been found by a Kentucky grand jury against Governor Taylor in connection \witfr the death of Goebel. The proposi- tion is ridiculous, but there is no telling what a Kentucky jury will do or what evidence can be secured for pay. It is not long siuce the usual verdict of a coroner's jury down South ou the,, deliberate shoot- ing of a nigger was sure to be suicide. The indictment against Gov. Taylor is, of course, a partisan one, there being but two Republicans on the grand jury. It was found ouly after a strong sceue be- tweeji the foremau and one of the Repub- lican members, which came near resulting in a personal encounter. Gov. Taylor is io New York, but will go back to meet the\' tr.Umped-up \ charge. Postmaster O'Neil has received some of the stamp books for sale which promise to become popular.

Hep- burn, of Madrid, at tbe home of the bride last Thursday was a very pretty event and was enjoyed by a number of Malone people. The house was magnificently decorated with wreaths of tulips and smilax and the ceremony was performed by Revs. J. A. Macintosh and C. W. Hardendorf. Mr. W. L. Allen, of Ma- lone, acted as best man; Miss Roberts, of Johnstown, Pa., as bridesmaid and Miss Fisher, of Potsdam, as maid of honor. The bride was arrayed in white crepe-de- chine and carried lily of the valley: the bridesmaid wore blue silk mull and the maid of honor pink silk mull. Both car- ried Easter lilies. The bridal procession advanced to the strains of Mendelssohn's Wedding March played by Misses Haig and Lockwood, little Isabella Howard, niece of the s groo.m, leading the bridal party. The ceremony, read was that of the Episcopal church. The presents w^«e beautiful and the refreshments superb, including ice cream and strawberries. After the ceremony the happy couple eluded their inquisitive friends who in- tended following them to the station by taking a hack and driving away towards W-ad^tBgto&r butxhey did not escape the red fire and fire crackers which formed a parting demonstration in the front yard as the hack rolled away. There were about 75 guests present, including.besides Rev. Macintosh and Mr. Alien from Ma- lone, Mrs. Macintosh, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Howard and family, Win. T. Short, Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Hale and Prof. Hodge. The bride and groom have now returned to Maione and occupy rooms at Mrs. Ben. Webster's, on Park street. In abouc six weeks they leave for a summer trip to Europe. The bride is a graduate of Wells College and a niece of the well- known banker, A. B. Hepburn. The groom is one of our best-known and most prosperous young business men. Both are now receivtng the congratulations and welcome of our townspeople. Miiton Duquette, an employe of tbe 'Chateaugay Ore & Iron Co.. was working with others pumping out the mines at Lyon Mountain on Monday of last week, when he slipped and fell a considerable distance and bis body disappeared in tbe water. Blood was found on the pump at the foot of the shaft and he must have been killed or so badly injured as to be unable to help himself when he struck tbe water. A diver from PlattMburgh was sent for to recorer the body if possible, and although he went down f a depth of 125 feet aud made careful search he could not go to a greater depth. It is thought that the body cannot be found until it rises or the water is pumped out of the shaft. The pressure on a diver's body at 150 feet depth is 70 pouds co tbe square inch-aud 99 out of 100 divers do not go as deep as that. Duquette was generally liked by tbe miners and leaves a widow, having been married about rive months. An attempt was made by two men Sat urday night to blow up oue of the gates on the Welland canal uearXhorold. Much damage resulted and miles around were brokei „ It was evident that the mi . of glass for oy the shock. intended blow out both gates at once which would have let down a mass of water almost «^ mile in length and wonld have carried out the entire system of seven locks. /The ^ men were captured but refuse to give any' continued to winder about until fatigu. M. R. Sackett. ot St. Lawr&nce, and A. E. Bluuck. of Fulton, were nominated as alternates. Royal Newton, of St. Law- rence county, was Dominated for presi- dential elector. A civil service examination for deputy officer, day inspector and night watchman in the classified customs service for* this district will be held at the Plattsburgb Custom House June 20th, commencing at 9 o'clock A. M. Applications for the examination must be made on the regular government blanks to be secured of T. F. Dtfyer, secretary of the board of examin- ers/Plattsburgh, and must be filed before tbe hour of closing business May 22nd. The sooner they are filed, the better, as some time may be lost in making neces- sary corrections. Numerous persons de- siring customs positions have been in- quiring for some months when these ex- aminations will be held and thisannounce- ment will therefore be of considerable public interest. Governor Roosevelt, about the middle of last week, announced the appointment of a commission to Iccate the State hos pitai for consumptives in the Adirondacks OD the commission are several city men -to p seemed more bright. \In point of population,\ says the Herald \ Tupper Lake has but one rival in the Adirondacks: in volume of trade none.\ A conserva- tive estimate places tbe number of men to be employed by the principal industries in and about Tupper Lake the coming sum- mer at 1700. A young man named Venette, aged 20 'ears, residing near Chateaugay Lake, committed suicide by hanging himself with a halter April 13th. His body was found hanging in a barn aud and no cause is assigned for the act except sudden in- sanity. A few days earlier Charles Trim, of Bangor, aged 22, committed suieide by taking Paris green. Unhappy domestic relations are assigned for the act. The Massena Observer says that, after an enforced idleness of nearly five months, work was resumed on the excavation of the Massen^a canal last week. The__w-_ork of getting machinery moved and making repairs and changes has been going on for eral weeks. Two big steam shovels have been started on the Andrews ridge, but the ground is soft and no great head- way can be made\\ at present. Many Italians are now arriving to renew their labors along the canal. Miss Cora Baker, a Gouverneur girl. who was employed as a nurse in the Massachusetts State Hospital, where numWous consumptives are treated, con traded the same disease and came home. After a short time she was compelled to return to the satae hoi^ksl as a pa tient where she had been recently em- ployed. Now she goes to Star Lake iu the Adirondacks to spend the summer. The infectious nature of the disease is now everywhere recognized. Quite a party of Maioue^_Masocs went to Saranac Lake last week \to* assist iu the and physicians aud Frank Kendall, the well-known druggist of Saranac Lake, who is tbe only member from the Adir.in- daeks. Mr Kendall understands the ques- tion thoroughly^-aud. with his city friends, ought to be able to locate the new sani- tarium near Saranac Lake, if the people there desire it. Saranac Lake being al- ready the Mecca for people troubled with incipieot tuberculosis, it would seem that it is the proper place for this State insti- -Mjtfee-^ -bfecjm^g. rhp ppoplf there _under_- stand the disease and know bow to take care of it. besides possessing ail the con- veniences needed for the care aud comfort of patients./ Tbe Tapper Lake Herald says, regard- ing fire insurance rates in that village:— \Mr. A. H. Merritt, of Chauneli's Agency. Malone, met with a cumber of business men in the Altamont on Thursday morn- ing of last week, at which the insurance rates in this village were discussed. Mr, Merritt stated that the rates adopted by the underwriters as peraianant were much the same as the temporary rating lately in force, though in some cases slightly lower. However, the under--, writers were willing to make a reduction of 25 per cent, if certain improvements as to lire protection were carried out, whio^, chiefly, rfiore hydrants and a certain establishment of a Chapter at that point. The blue lodge at Sarauac Lake has growr: ,to be a large and strong organization «n-i the application for a charter for u chapter was duly granted by the Grand Lodge.
