Another victim of the Lake Gervais cyclone died yesterday. Mrs. John Clark, whose home at little Canada was wrecked, had her left arm torn ofFand lung exposed, and died in great agony. A sliver pierced her husband just above the heart, but it is thought In- has a chance to recover. LAKK CITY, July lake shore was made to reverberate this morning with tho thunder of dynamite which was brought into requisition in tho hope that it would be of help in bringing some of theasyetonrecorered bodies to the surface. Country people who had driven from all directions yesterday were again on hand, and residents were also there at an early hour'watching the workers. A mili- tary guard wits kept up all night at the beach, and they kept back to-day as they had done yesterday. The Hmiling sky in no way reminded one of the great horror that had come upon this whole section of the State. Nothing new has developed along the lake shore, no bodies having been recovered np to noon. It is probable no more bodies will be found for two or three days. At Lake City they hope there are not over a dozen more in the lake, but at Redwing the number is placed at two or three1 times that figure. Captain Weatheren-, who has not been seen hore since >enterday noon, told the citizens of Redwing that the number on _ board at the timo of the diwastei would not exceed 170. A Redwing man denies the Captain's figures as owr thirty below the truth, and accuses both the Captain and the crew of being drunk and unfit to have charge of the boat at such a time, but there is no proof of such a state of affairs. There were those on board among tho passengers who had been drinking, and whose actions drove the woiuen and children to the cabin. This fact may be the grounds for the rumor. Another rumor that is making great indignation accuses the Captain of ordering the doors locked and keeping the people inside. Miss Aggie Bartron of Lake City, ono of those rescued from the barge, says all the women and children were ordered into the cabin from the barge. It would be natural lor the captain to do this, as it was intensely dark, and tho rain and hail made it extremely disagreeable to remain on the barge. On the other hand, the engineer says the captain thought the barge safer than the steamer and sent au order down to the cabiu for the women and children to go on the barge. Instead of carrying the order correctly the man told them to stay in the cabin and lock the doors, which they did. Previous to that most of the women left the barge for the steamer, telling the engi- neer of the men being drank, and they would not stay there. Whether these be facts or not it is certain the doors were shnt if not locked when the rescuers reached the steamer, and everything indicated they had been closed throughout the gale. RED WINQ July six bodies brought here yesterday were laid out in an empty store-room, and to this place of death came the mourning relatives and friend to claim their dead or look in vain for the ab- sent. All day long the long pine boxes that suggest heart-aches and heart- breaking were being carried from this store room to the stricken homes of the city, and at many hearthstones but one or two survivors of a family" awaited the coming of the mortal clay of their loved ones. This is a day of funerals. Nearly all of the bodies yet recovered are being carried to God's where the last words of fare- well and consolation are beinxspoknn, and the falling earth aa it strikes the coffin lids beats also upon the hearts of the mourners and the agony of their grief attain comes over them. Movements or frutecrH. By Associated Press VICTORIA (B. July statement that two Canadian vessels which recently sailed out of Maple Bay were armed with guns and would resist the American revenue cutters is wi thoiu foundation. The steam schooner Mischief, belonging at Seat, tie, was chartered to take supplies to the sealers and bringdown their catch. Messrs. Hall and Marwin, who own seven out of the thirty vessels running out of Victoria, say the reports were sent out to prejudice the foreign office at London against the cause of the sealers. "We are neither poachers nor pi- they stated. "We clear at custom houses, and the officials know our destination. If our business is illegal they should refuse to give us the proper gajgejt. Incase the ques- tion is decided against the sealers, we will quit the business, but to do so now we would have to admit the right of the United States to pursue the course it has adopted." The following vessels are hi Esqui- mault harbor: Second-class cruiser Champion, 280 men; third-class cruiser Ewpiogle, 130 men; and the gun boats Daphne and Nymph with a complement of 140 men each. Cap- tain St. Clair of the Champion, the senior ranking officer in the absence of Admiral Hathatu, was seen, and in reply to a question, said: "The reason of gathering here in such force is to welcome Admiral Hatham, who succeeds Admiral Hen- eage in command of the fleet. I can an8tire you on my honor that we have received no orders regarding Behring Sea. As senior officei of the squadron I have opened every message cabled from London by the Admiral. The most of them related to the stations ol the vessels during next year. The Espieael will probably go to Honolulu, the Champion to Callao, and the Nymph or Daphne may go to Behring Sea, but only for a cruise, as was done last year." Drawing.

Census Supervisor Murray of New York City says the women engaged as census enumerators did splendid work, and he regrets that he did not appoint all women. Some of the men resigned because of fatigue and the intense heat, hut not one woman made such complaiut. John Kelly and James Caldwell, for the same offense, were held for sen- tence. Judge Young this morning judged and jugged Henry Meyers, Jarora Gorman, John Burns and Indian for ten days each for disturbing the peace. Officer Nash was seized this morning j with an attack of gastritis, which, under speedy medical treatment, proved mild, and, though confined to bis bed throughout the day, it will not incapacitate him from work.
