On the take SajMrior.DQrtion of the llnei betwmn Minneapolis/fBt^lPaia and P 'andSti PaQland^A8hlpnd,:.Pil|lnian;-8)eoper8'are: Cleveland, O., June 16.-Two hundred people were hurled from a broken foot bridge in Beyerle's park at 6 o'clock last night and piled in a stmggling mass on the sloping sides of a guUey or precipitated into the bed of the stream sixty feet below. Forty persons received more or less severe cuts and contusions, some of which may prove fatal. The crowd had been drawn to the park by the announcement that a man named Bellar would jump from a cable stretched from the cliffs to, the artificial lake, nearly 100 feet below. One of the best points of obsei-vation was from a foot bridge across a gnlley sixty feet high. This frail sti-ncture, some seventy feet in length, was packed with men, women and clnldren. Suddenly, with a loud crash, the overweighted stringers snapped and the 200 occupants of the structure vi^ere pitched headlong into the ravine. Men, women and children fought their way out of the heap as best they could, trampling on those below and crushing down those who impeded their progress. When the last person had been rescued from the pile it was found that all but ten of the victims were able to go to their homes unassisted. The others were taken by the ambulances to the hospitals or their homes. Some of the ten have internal injuries that may prove fatal. Following is the list of the seriously injured: Jaues SANFono, 63 years, right leg fractured and internal Injuries, probably fatal. Rmjoi-PH WoODRicii, 28 years, right leg fractured and head bruised.

Cincinnati, June 16.-A terrific thun der storm passed over this city between 12 and 1 o'clock, doing considerable damage, especially to the macadamized streets.

Overwork' inl THE DUTY; ON WOOI- The Consumers' Association Ask for Total Abolition of Duty. Boston, June 16.-The Wool Consumers' association have sent to the senate .finance committee at Washington a memorial in which they say: "For the protection of the woolen manufacture of the country, and for its rescue from a most hampered and depressed condition, we ask for a great reduction or the total abolition of the duty on wool." The memorialists proceed with an elaborate argument in favor of this proposition, in the course of which they say: "A free selection fronr many varieties of wool is essential for the manufacture of the cloths required by the trade, and the exclusion of foreign wool interferes with the necessary supply of raw material as to reduce rather than increase the quantity of American wool used." In conclusion the memorialists say: As all the wool grown in the world is now wanted, the American grower could hardly be injured by the readjustment of values. If, at the worst, his product should fall slightly in price, he would be compensated soon by . the larger and more certain demand from the stimulated and increased manu-facme, The demand for mutton is rapidly increasing, and mutton is afforded better quality by sheep which produce long wool than by the breeds producing short, fine wool. The half-breed mutton sheep's wool in the warp works admirably with the rejected worsted fibre and the Montevideo fleeces in the fill; ing. Thus the mutton flocks would be stimulated through the importation of free raw materials. The Ameridiin consumer of woolens and worsteds would get better fabrics at prices generally lower." AN IOWA coyvENTioy. All Grades and Shades of Antl-HIbnopllstM to Meet at Des Moines.

Washington, June 16.-The silver debate, which has been prolonged for so many weeks, comes to an end to-day. By an agreement reached last Friday general debate on the bill ends at 3 o'clock, and then debate continues under the five minute rule" until a vote is reached. The pending measure is the house bill, as amended in the senate committee on finance. It will then go into conference, the chief point of difference between the two houses being the proposition to make the silver certificates legal tender and to make them redeemable in bullion at the option of the secretary of the treasury on demand of owner. The matter is not likely to be disposed of finally for some time. Following the silver bill, Mr. Piatt, the chairman of the committee on territories has arranged to call up the bill for the admission of Wyoming into the Union, and after that the Idaho admission bill. Senator Allison the chairman of the committee on appropriations, has promised that he vrill not antagonize these bills with any of the appropriation bills. It is the intention of the Democrats to offer an omnibus bill (including Idaho, Arizona, and New Mexico) as a substitute for the Wyoming bill, and the debate will be on that measure, Mr. Piatt has said that he will present the report of the committee in favor of the bills and make no further argument. In this event the debate on the two bills is likely to be brief and they may be disposed of by Thursday. Mr. Frye, the chairman of the committee on commerce, will have the river and harbor appropriation bill before the senate by that time, and he has the assurance that Mr. Allison and Mr. 'Aid-rich, of the committee on: finance, will not call up the tariff bill (which will by that time have been reported) until the river and harbor bill is out of the way. Senator Morrill's agriculture college ::bill is down-for consideration Thursday. It may be crowded out by some otljier measure. The legislative appropriation bill is on the calendar, and likely to be called up at any odd minute.  Before the end of the week the house will probably have passed the new federal election biU agreed upon., by the RjBpublican caucus'. ,^The^ bill'will; pr.obablyiJbe iiitrodueed in ' the' housl'' to-day, and after the committee On thB-i election of president and vice president has made its purely perfunctory report on it, the house will take it up for consideration. The consideration of the bill may run into the following week. The consideration of the sundry civil appropriation bill will take the place of general suspension business, which the rules of the house provide shall occur on that day. Tuesday the contested election case of Chalmers (Republican) and Morgan (Democrat) from Mississippi, will be taken up and speedily disposed of, as the elections committee has decided in .favor of Morgan the sitting member. The national bahkruptcy bill will also be taken up during the week. Where Cornwallls Surrendered. WASHiNCiTON; June 16.-This afternoon, a select party will leave the Baltimore and Ohio depot for a visit to York-town, Va., to inspect the monument erected there to commemorate the surrender of Cornwallis at that place. The party is made np of congressmen from the thirteen original states and a few invited guests, who will be under tho care of Col. J. F. Payton a gentleman who has figured in every large event of this character. From Baltimore the I party will take a York river steamer'at 1 5 o'clock, and vdll be met at West Point by the govenimeut steamer Despatch. Tuesday morning they will be entertained by Mr. Cruikshank, the present occupant of the Moore house, in which the treaty capitulations were prepared. CheokinK Up for the Government. Washington, June 16.-William Thompson, the bookkeeper of the office of the commissi6ner of railroads, started west to make the annual examination of the books and accounts of the subsidized Pacific railroads, in order to ascertain the amounts due the United States for the past year. He will stop in Chicago and Omaha and look into the affairs of the Sioux City and Pacific rail-;road and the Union Pacific railway companies; after which he-will iiroceed to San, Francisco; Cal., to examine the books of the Central Pacilio railroad company. Death In a CoUUlou. i Chiffewa Falls, Wis.; June 16.-A freight engine on the Central railroad while moving at high spead; two miles below this city, collided < with the Short line passenger train running between this city and Eau Claire. Engineer J. O. Watson,", of the passenger train, and Archie McNnlty, fireman of the freight; were fatally injured. Both engines were completely demolished. The collision occurred in a curve; on the track and neither rof; the engineers saw the other approaching. :'!s';Vaolflo Railroad IiegUlation, :/^WAbhinoton, June 16.-rThe prospects (^Pacific legislation at this: session of (ingress are now very bright,. Senator JVye; who has the matter in hand, said to a'reporter of the United Press that he did^fnot see any prospect of getting tlie funding bill before the senate before the tariff bill is taken up, It is possible it will come np while the tariff bill is in conference; hut it is more, likely it will go oyer until the short seseionof congress. Spoiikor Uecd Says tito Appropriations Must IJo Scaled IJonn 86 Per Cent. Washington, June 10.-The senate committee on commerce, v/hich has been handling the river and harbor bill for a little less than two weeks, will likely report it to the senate by the middle of this week. Senator Frye says he expects to have it ready Wednesday. By refusing to give hearings to any but senators and members ot the house and ox-senators and ex-members, the committee has simplified its work very materially and hastened the completion of the bill by several weeks. T le bill, as it came from the house, appropriated 130,000,000. Tlie increases thus far made by the senate committee aggregate about $4,000,000. Other increases will be offered in the senate and urged there and it is likely the bill will go into conference with an aggregate of $25,000,-000, or very little less. It is currently reported at the Capitol that the speaker of the house has said that he will not allow the bill to go through unless it is scaled down 25 per cent, from the amount appropriated by the house bill, that is, unless the aggregate appropriation is reduced to about $15,-000,000. This means that the bill will be in conference for a long time, probably a month. Mr. Reed has the appointment of the conferrees and he can. instruct them at the time of their appointment, if they are willing to take instructions from him. Mr. Frye, the chairman of the committee on. commerce, will make an effort to have the bill taken up and disposed of before the tariff debate begins,so that the long conference will have concluded before congress takes its summer recess. Flying Over the Water. Washington, June 16.-A party of Washington correspondents were the guests of Secretary Tracy on a trip down the Potomac on the phenomenal torpedo boat Gushing. The guests were welcomed by Mr. Raymond, who represented the secretary, and at 4:30 p. m. their cigar-shaped little vessel steamed away from the navy yard under command of Lieut. Winslow. After passing Alexandria the speed was gradually increased until opposite Fort Washington. A mile between two buoys was made in two minutes and three seconds, seven seconds faster than the previous record of the flying craft. The crowds on the excursion steamers and at the various river landings and excursion resorts watched the Gushing pass with unconcealed wonder, and the fastest boats on the river v,'ere overtaken in an inconceivably short time. Opposite Mount Vernon the boat was put through a series of maneuvers which were full of interest. The breeze created by the vessel in cleaving the air was equal to a gale. _ The Tariff Bill. Washington, June 16.-The position of the tariff bill is very well outlined. Only two schedules have, not been completed and the action of the Republican riipfiinbers of the committee on tliem has iheen'.^jSfx Jwell-ireshadawed.

On tobacco, it is thought, the reduction from the present rate of duty proposed by the McKinley bill, will be struck out. With these schedules disposed of, the bill will be ready to go to the senate. It will be reported probably early in the week, but it is likely debate on it ^vill not begin until the week following. Wliere Vance Iiocatos the Trouble. Washington, June 15.-Senator Vance has ^vritten a letter to Census Superintendent Porter in regard to the reported obstruction of the census enumerators by the people of Asheville, N. C, in which he defends the people of that city from the charge, doubts its truth, questions the character of the men appointed as enumerators, and says in conclusion that if any real trouble exists, apart fi'om the irritation caused by appointing unsuitable men for the purpose, he will exert what influence he possesses to have the census returns made as complete as possible. Chinese Annoyed. Washington, June 10.-Complaint has been made to the police of this city by official sof the Chinese legation that neither the ladies of the' legation nor themselves can, during these warm evenings, avail themselvep of the cooling balconies of their legation residence without attracting a crowd of curious idlers, who, by their manners and conduct, greatly annoy them. This annoyance is so continious and-so persistent as to. practically make prisoners of both the ladies and the officials of the legation within the walls of ther residence. .ji . Indian Supplies."

The work was the subj ect of a congressional investigation two years ago; and the engineers connected with it were itransforred to other cities for duty. The President at a Beform School.
