Loudon, July 18.—The Daily Telo-
graph haa the following from Canton,
dated July 16: v I
"In an interview with the foreign
consuls today, Li Hung Chang aaid
that hia miwiou to Pekin was two-
fold—to save the U vea of the foreign
miaaiouaries and ministers and to ar-
range the beat posaible terms of peace
with the allied powers. The Ameri-
can and French consuls, who con-
gratulated him upon these oommend-
able purposes, reminded him of his
pledges to protect foreigners and to
preserve peace in Central and South-
ern China. "
'•Earl Li replied that he must obey
the summons to Pekin but* that he
had talen all necessary .precautions,
He added that he had received com-
plete oables from Lord Salisbury and
M. del Casse demanding protection
for the foreign ministers in Pekin and
threatening to Imprison the offioials
who are responsible, He told the
consuls that he was the only man in
China who dared transmit such mes-
sages to the empresa, but that he had
aent them verbally, and that he did
not doubt that tbey had exerted pow-
erful influence in saving the minis-
on to say that as the Doyen
roys, he bad also induced
ther viceroys except two to
a lengthy memorial to the
asking security for the for-
go era, suppression for the Boxers
'ud full reparation for the damage
one and the lives lost.
"To the American who inquired
'«bout the actual fate of the foreign-
ers, Li answered that be bad re-
ceived no information from Pekin
within the past week, but if they
were alive, he was almost oertain that
matters could be satisfactorily ar-
ranged with the powers."
"If they are dead?"
"Here he shrugged -his shoulders
significantly and answered with low-
"It is hard to tell what may hap
pen. J am going to Pekin practioally
unarmed except for my bodyguard of
200 men and that ought to be evi
denoe to the whole world that I do
not favor any fighting and of my
pacifio intentions. I am old and in
very poor health, and it is a heavy
personal sacrifico to undertake such a
journey in this horrid weather,'
"After a moment's thought,
" 'If your ministers aré killed,
you think my life may be taken
Jbtaliou en route?"
"This question received a strong
negative reply. He then asked the
consuls to wire to their respective
admirals to respect bis own flag and
to allow him a safe conduct to Pekin.
He wss evidently exceedingly ana-
iou^bout the ministers, for, return-
iDRian^ho "ubJ^da&® 8"id-
^ily, and I am
ma with them.'
t he realized bis
en wrong, an4 that
cablegrams from Lord
M. del Casse to the
for word, ss be received
ooncluded by asking the
n of the allied powers in
furthe; Vb the success of his mission,
and r,rlI^ emphatically that he de-
pendf A^pon them."

Oolkman, Texas, July 17,—Yester-
day's . flood haa proven an awful
calamity for this town and vicinity.
Tho bodies of ten persona are awai^
iog burial and still others are known
to have been lost. There has been
an extended drouth here—about two
months. «Sunday night a steady rain
fell all night. Hord's Creek, a sun
Stream rising about fiftMfi&T
north of Colemah and ruunihg th
about a quarter of a mile of town, was
full to the banks Monday morning
and a number of people had goue
aoross the valley to look at the stream,
when, without any warning, a huge
wave of w4<*r ton feet in height and
a quarjteVof a mile wide bore down on
tbe people living in the valloy be-
tween the railroad aad town. J. O
«path, a butcher, was on the edge of
the creek on horseback, and as soon
as he saw the water coming be took
two little ^irls up on his horse and
made for town, but was Overtaken by
the mountain of water before he..had
gone half way and was burled agsinst
a wile fence and was seen no more
until his body, tocher with those of
tbe little girls, was tÉken from the
debris about half a miie further down
after the flood bad subsided. Spath
leaves a wife and baby. - ;
Crawford Jackson, who was with
Spath at tba time, also picked up two
chiltfrétt and started for town, but re-
alising that it would he impossible to
make it, climbed a small mesquito
bush, but found that it would not,
hold the weight of all three! He
placed the children inm safe a posi-
tion as possible, stepped down into
tbe water, which was then six or eight
feet deep, and swam to an old barn
into which he with difficulty man-
aged to climb, jackson and tbe two
children were finally resetted in boat
John EuIlatine, who was a bartend
er in a saloon sittuted just outside the
corporation and near the oreek, also
tried to esoap* with a little girt, who
wm caught in the fl >od, but they
both perished and their bodies were
washed about half a mile and lodged
in some bushes.
Heck llodges, proprietor of the sa-
loon, started to ride, but wss .caught
in the rush of water and narrowly es-
caped by grabbing small brush and
holding on till rescued with boats.
Head's wagon yard, looated a fow

taining a number of barns, houses,
etc., was.catight in the current of the
flood. Mr. Cheek and his wlf; w«ré
