AN ADTENTUBESS AND HER TEARS One of the nest Known Men in Colorado Fatally Sliootv His Wife aed Suicides- A Denver Street Tragedy-Other Criminal News, San Antonio, Tex., June 10.-The east-bound Southern Pacific train passes Spofford Junction at 4:40 every morning. It is generally pretty well loaded with passengers, and the express carries a good deal of money. Spofford is 180 miles west of here. At 12 o'clock Monday night two men broke open section house 100 and took a wrench and pickax. With these instruments they removed the fish-poles and loosened a couple of rails between Spofford and Anacacdio, and tied lengthy wires to them so that they could be snatched from their i)laces in an instant. At this instant a tramp came stumbling down the track in the darkness, and he saw the men at work before they saw him, and crouched by the side of the track. He saw what the men were after, and made his way back to tlie section house. He entered in the open door of the house, walked up to the boss and told him what had happened. The two men rushed down to the break at top speed. When thev got there the bandits were gone. By working at the most rapid rate they managed to refasten the rails, and as the last spike was driven the headlight of the fast paeseinger showed around the curve. They had barely stepped back when it thundered pa;8t. The conductor was standing on the platform of the forward coach, and threw the light of the lantern into their faces. When the sound of the train had died in the distance Section Boss Eoonev turned to the tramp and asked bim his name. He declined to give it. Booney offered him Jl; the fellow took it, dropped it in his pocket and contentedly trudged off into the. darkness toward Eagle Pass. The train reached San Antonio on time and not a soul on it knew that anything unusual bad happened. At the point where the break was made the fast passenger trains make forty-five miles an hour.__ Airs. Dunn Breaks Down. New York, June 19.-The first of the unfortunates who appeared in the supreme court were "Mr. and; Mrs. Jere Dunn." Mr. Dunn is well known throughout the land as a "spirit" of the first water. Mrs. Diinn, ip a bleached suit of hair, rouged- cheeks, diamonds and silks, appeared. She was married to Jere Dunn with the hotel register as the Bible of their troth, and now she wants a divorce, with alimony thrown in. She took , the ' stand, the lawyer taking her in hand for croSs-examination. She was icy in her bearing, and chilly in her modesty,; but she melted when the long course of her life was inquired into with minute detail, how she was a thing to be picked up and thrown aside later at every man's pleasure. The crowd leered at her. There was not a ray of pity in any eye gazing at her. Her counsel endeavored to protect her in vain. At last she softened, the lip quivered, the eye grew moist, and with a convulsive throb the woman in an appealing look at the court, cried, "My God, judge, I cannot stand this," burst into a flood of tbars, tears that did not avail her much. The case was taken under advisement. A street Tragedy In Denver. Denvek, Colo., June 19.-Last evening at 5 o'clock George McCartney met L. A.

Cyclone and Waterspout Claim Sever al 'Vlotlms in Soutli Dakota. Hdron, S. D., June 19.-Reports from the northwest part of the state concerning Tuesday night's wind and rain storm indicate that it was more severe than any storm this season. An inch and a quarter of rain fell here, but no winder hail. AtFaulktop two cars loaded with rails were blown from the the track. The rain was heavy. At Redfleld an Episcopal church was lifted from its foundation and badly damaged. A regular cyclone occurred near Lebanon, in Potter county, and swept things clean for several miles.

Almost a Horror, New York, June 19.-A section of the bridge leading from the sea wall in (front of the Hudson square park. Hobo-ken, to the free baths, gave way and precipitated about iforty persons into the water beneath. There was great excitement among the hundreds of people that were on other parts of the bridge, and their frantic movements greatly retarded the rescuing of the drowning people. They were all rescued, however, without serious injury as far as known. It is impossible to tell whether or not some of those who wore on the bridge were drowned. At a late hour friends and relatives of those who are known to have been in the vicinity of the bridge are anxiously scouring the neighborhood for traces of the missing ones.__ THE DUNRAR MINK IIORROII. A Sensation ProniiRcd at the Coroner's Iiii|UOHt-Tho Searvli. Ddnbar, Pa., June 10.-The last report of Mine Inspector Keighly on the condition of the Hill-fai-m mine is still missing.

The President Not in the Coming Race. HE WILL RETURN TO THE BAR Upon Completion of His Tcriu of Oince- Tho Silver BUI-The Day hi Congress- Stipcriiitcitclcnt Porter on Census �iuinicratioii. Washl\won, June 19.-A piece of news that will bo read with intense interest came from the White HouSe. It is no less than a positive declaration by President Harrison that he will not be a candidate for renomination under any consideration or circumstance. The president, it appears made up his mind some time ago not to seek the presidential nomination again. He did not think it necesHary to make any announcement of the fact, although it was assumed by thousands of party men that in the natural course of things he would be a candidate for a second term. Indeed, the announcement was made in the most casual way. The president was in conversation with an intimate friend at the White House and the talk turned on the silver bill. Incidentally, national politics were mentioned, and the president expressed himself quite freely. He said among other things that he matje up his mind not to be a candidate for renomination, and that at the end of the present term he intends to �ettle iu Indianapolis again and resume the practice of the law. The president's declaration touching his relation to the next presidential nomination, made as it was without reserve, was soon in wide circulation, and afforded a topic for conversation that in interest subordinated all other topics for the time. _ The Consns.   � Wariiinoton, June 19.-The board of directors of the chamber of commerce of Denver held a meeting with respect to the alleged delays in taking the enumeration of the census and the possible inaccuracy of the count resulting therefrom, and telegi-aphed their action to the two senators from that state, Messrs. Teller and Wolcott, with a view to having these gentlemen see tho superintendent of census for the purpose of extending the time in which the enumerators throughout that state may do the work of counting the people thoroughly, so as to give no opportunity for complaint on the score of alleged omissions. The two senators in turn repeated to the superintendent of census the telegram received from the board of directors of the chamber of commerce, and urged compliance with their request. To this the superintendent made reply as follows: 'No specific extension of time can be granted. Wherever any enumerator has been unable for good and sufllcient cause, to complete the enumeration of his district in the prescribed time, he should be instructed by the supervisor to complete the enumeration, and his accounts will be allowed and paid on the certification of tho supervisor that the delay was due to circumstances beyond the control of the enumerator. Persons can be enumerated at the supervisor's office. Names thus presented as omissions must, however, be verified by enumerators at the residence, and examination must be made of schedules to avoid duplication. All necessary time and clerical assistance will be allowed the supervisor for making such examinations."        ^_ The Silver Bill. Washington, June 19.-While nine-tenths of the members of the house of representatives are expecting a fight over the question of reference of the silver bill in the house, the bill is reposing calmly in the custody of the committee on coinage, weights and measures. The speaker, under one of the new rules of the house, has referred the bill without laying it before the house. This news will be a surprise to the silver men in the house, and not a very agreeable one. An effort was made in the house to have the bill laid before the house, and if this had been done there is little doubt that it would have been put through in the form in which it camo fi'om the senate. Thespeaker,antiopating this difficulty whenever the bill should be laid before the house, went over the rules carefully, and after consulting with the leaders on the Republican side and with Mr. Bland and the principal advocates of free coinage, detennined that under the rules the bill need not be laid before the house at all, and that the reference of it was a formal matter which the clerk could attend to. The bill will now be considered by the committee and returned to the house with recommendations as to the senate amendments. It will take its place at the foot of the calendar, to be caUedup on motion at any time. Beforeit is considered it will doubtless be made the subject of caucus action. The Government Will Stand the Xosg. Washington. June 19.-The senate committee-on judiciary reported to the senate favorably the bill of Mr. Hearst releasing S. H. Brooks, assistant treasurer of the United States, and his bondsmen, from liability for the loss of $10.-1)00 from the sub-treasury at San Francisco. The loss was discovered and reported by Mr. Brooks Feb. Js7, 1880. The treasury department investigated the matter fully, but has not been able to determine how the money was lost. New Banks.":..'.' Washington, D.
