THE DALLES, OREGON, FRIDAY, MAY 6, 1892. NUMBER 21 VOL. II. VRECKED AT THE FAIR Jactson Part Visited liy a . Terrifflc Wind Storm. DAMAGES AT f20,ooo A MINUTE. The Thirty-Acre Building of the Liberal Arts Laid Waste. TORNADO CIRCLES ON THE FLOOR. A Tremble, Rocking, a Deafening Roar, a Forward Flung, a Crumb ling Waste and Wreck. . Chicago, April 28. During a gale that swept through Jackson Park yes terday afternoon, sections of the south and west walls of the manufacturers' and liberal arts building of the world's fair were wrecked. This is the biggest building on the grounds. One tornado followed another. About 1:30 p. m., the first one bit the big building at the southeast corner, and tore out 100 feet of the latticed woodwork that served as awall. Three men were injured in the wreck. Half an hour later another tornado tore through the park, and in " its path;; left the wreck of the west wall, 100 feet long and sixty-six feet high. Nobody was injured in the fall. When the first section tumbled' down all the employes climbed down from the build ing. Nearly all of them were crowded about the wrecked section when the second tornado did the greatest damage. Scores of workmen would have been carried down with the falling timbers had the west section given way first. Warned of their peril by the collapse of the south wall, they hurried down before the second section fell. The wind blew great guns all day, but the laborers kept at their work. After the first crash Frank Agnew, contractor for the carpen ter work on the building, ordered his men to make ready for another shock by bracing the weaker sections of the build- ing. He was confident that the west wall would stand against any storm, but had less confidence in the strength of the east wall, which stretches 1,718 feet -wr along the lake shore and is fully exposed to the winds. Before his orders could be carried out the second gale swept through the park. It also came from the south? " west and rushed through the building with frightful velocity. The tornado seemed to describe a circle across the 30-acre floor and strike the extreme northwest corner of the building. The first damage was done at the southeast corner The massive timbers trembled and shook for an instant before the blast. The whole section rocked, and a deafening roar sounded through - the building. One of the heavy wall-piers at the very corner of the building snap ped and plunged forward with the cen ter of the wall, and as it fell it carried down the next pier south of it. The jirhole wall crumbled, falling down by piers and trusses, like so many blocks in . a row. In an instant the entire section, 700 feet long and sixty-six feet high, was piled on the floor. The few workmen who remained at their posts went down with the wreck, but escaped injury. .Three of them jumped to save their lives. This building is the largest fair building in the world. It is 1,700 feet long by t 150 feet wide, and will cost $1 ,500,000. Alaska Explorers Misting. Victoria, B. C, April 28. Grave fears are entertained as to the safety of John Ingersoll and Steve Vaughn, who - left last November on a prospecting and ... trapping expedition around Cape Cau - ;; tion. They were last seen in the middle of December, by Frank Rothwell, who . was also on a similar trip to that region. , When they left Alert bay they only took provisions.. to last until March 1, the , time they expected to return. . Inquiries f . have been made of all the steamers and . canoes coming down the coast, but no . one appears to have seen or heard any thing of them. It is feared they . have met with some accident, as Cape : Can-' tion and the adjacent waters are not very safe for boats. Vaughn has a wife and family in Seattle. . ;' A.Denver Conspiracy. " , . Denver, April 28. A. sensational ex ; posure was made daring the hearing of . the attachment suit against the defunct liquor firm of Boehman A Co. by the first national bank. . The firm failed for 250,000. A member of the Hound city distilling company stated daring the trial : that Boehman A Co. and Nagle' & Becker, liquor brokers of Chicago, had entered into a conspiracy, whereby the former was to purchase through them goods amounting to $4,000,000 and then fail, the Chicago firm to share the nrofits. In this way over $50,000 worth was disposed t)f in Chicago, Denver and the east. An attachment of the bans cm declared void on the ground the discounted paper was not given for a consideration. National Bank Failure. . Washington, April 28. In the house the committee on banking and currency yesterday began, the investigation ordered by the Mutchler resolution into the failures of the Keystone and Spring Garden National banks of Philadelphia Andrew J. Sarden, assistant book-keeper and collector of the Keystone National bank, swore that he knew where the books of the bank were in which, false entries had been made. The witness said Lawrence, one of the employes, kept the books in part of which he made the forced balances. The amounts were doctored by rubbing them off. the book and making false charges. - Sarden said he saw Lawrence make an entry for John Bardsley for $40,000 or $50,000. He said they put .him out of the bank one night while they doctored the books and that imitations of his handwriting had been on the books, which, upon see ing them at first he thought actually his. Tennessee Regulators. Knoxville, Tenn., April 28. Twenty men last night surrounded the house of Eufus Jenkins, a deposed minister, near Dandridge, and ordered him to surrender. He answered their summons by firing into the crowd with a shot gun. The bouse was set on fire and Jenkins sur rendered. His face was filled with small shot and his' body mutilated by the gang. The woman with whom Jenkins is charged with living has disap peared. This morning W. A. Givens, a merchant and influential citizen living at Dandridge, found posted on his door a document notifying him to remain in doors after dark or 'he would be foully dealt with. The whitecaps are a por tion .of the Anti-Lust and Laziness Or ganization, formed in Jeffepson county sixty days ago. They are believed to be composed of farmers who have be come tired of the way in which some residents conduct themselves. What Stanford Says. Pittsburg, April 28. Senator Leland Stanford passed through here this a. m., and during the 20 minutes waiting at the depot for a change of locomotives, was engaged in a conversation upon political events. Among other things he said: "The peoples' or independent party, will certainly have a candidate in the field next fall. With a national debt of $2, 000,000,000; an enormous railway in debtedness ; half the land mortgaged and the load growing heavier ; it is time that measures of relief be taken. In the west particularly, people feel the need of freer money. The peoples ' party hope to get it. I do not know who their candidate is to be. I presume Mr. Harrison and Mr. Cleveland will be the respective can didates of their parties. This is the gen eral impression in the west." Eegard ing the university at Palo Alto, the sen ator said he was making accommodation for 500 more pupils. Oat With. Hint. Melbourne, April 29. The judge re fused to grant a further postponement of the Deeming trial yesterday. The Standard announces without reserve that Deeming confessed to the -lawyers and doctors who examined him that he committed the majority of the "Jack the Ripper" crimes in Whitechapel. The article created a sensation. When ar raigned, for trial today he showed much depression. After the selection of the jury, the demon listened closely to the prosecutor's . speech portraying bis crimes. ' i Don't Need Any Mongoose. Sacramento, April 28. At a meeting of the executive committee of the state board of agriculture today the following resolution was' adopted: ."Resolved, That the reported action of the National Fruitgrowing Company of San Francisco in arranging for the introduction of mongoose into California, is by the state board of agriculture deprecated, and that the said company be petitioned to refrain from importing said animal into this state, as we believe it more danger ous than ground squirrels or gophers." . ' ' Shot Himself. - - ' New York, April 28. News has been received here of a fatal accident which happened last night to Thomas Olwell Speir, an architect at South Orange, N. J. He was. examining a revolver, when the weapon was accidentally discharged. He fell to the floor and died soon after. AWFUL PANIC SCENES. A Tleatre in PMaiMDMa' Consnmed With Fatal Effect. SIX PERSONS BURNED TO DEATH. The Fire Had a Stubborn Hold on the . Building Before Aid Came. UNUSUAL MADDENED STAMPEDE. One Crazed Indlridaal Actually CarTed His Way Through the Mass With n Knife. Philadelphia, April 28. A very dis astrous fire occurred here last night des troying nearly $1,000,000 worth of prop erty, killing several people and injuring half a hundred others. It broke out on the stage of the Grand Central theatre shortly before the time set for the opin ing of the play and spread with such rapidity that it had a stubborn hold upon the building before the firemen arrived. The theatre and the Times building adjoining were totallyjdestroyed, and several smaller buildings in the vi cinity "wrecked by falling walls. In the excitement to get out of the theatre, many were trampled and received injur ies from which they will likely die. One individual, -maddened and brutalized, drew a large knife and cut his way through the mass of people. - Fifty-two persons were cared for at the hospitals in, the vicinity- Several are reported missing. ' The destruction of the theater proves far more, terrible in its results than was anticipated. Six members of the "Devil's Auction Company" lie dead beneath the fallen walls. Nearly three score people are in the hospital suffering from burns. ' Of the men and boys in hospital, seven are in such a serious con dition that their recovery is doubtful. All were members of the audience. Be sides those seriously enough hurt to re main in the hospitals, fully fifty others were -treated for minor injuries: The members of the company who lost their lives are : : Thomas Lorella, grotesque, and wife Flora, ballet dancer; Viacen- tina Chitten, premier danseuse, one of the Chitten sisters ; Fancheon Coniters, juvenile; Sarah Golden, ballet dancer; William L. Brooks, leading man. The injured who are likely to die are : Harry McCloskey, James Pigeon, AmosHinch cliffe, Rand Patterson, Albert Cleum backer, Thomas Atchison and Ralph Fraser. - - Cattle King's Telegram. ' Cheyenne, Wyo., April 28. The stock men imprisoned in Fort Russell are moving heaven and earth to defeat the attempt to return . them to Johnson county, wnere tne ngnt witn the rustieraj in the state are. working like Trojans on the case. What steps they are taking to. checkmate their enemies they will not say. They only assert the case shall not be tried by public opinion. Too much excitement they think has been occa sioned already. It ia now thought that it was a mistake to remove the prisoners from Fort McKinley, where, under mili tary protection, they were safe, and where, had they remained, the dangers of the return to Buffalo, should it be come necessary, could have . been avoided. - Accident or BuicldeT Corvallis, April 28.--A1. Modi, living near this city on a farm, shot himself yesterday .afternoon. He was in town in the morning, and drew $900 out of the bank. When he reached home he gave the money to his sister, and took a rifle out, presumably to kill a pheasant near the house. He had gone but a short dis tance when the gun was discharged and the top of his head was blown off. It is not known whether it was an accident or a suicide. , RaTlshers Lynched. .Nashville, April 28. Four negroes were lynched, and two others shot at, in Goodletsville, last night, because of brutal outrage upon two respectable white girls, aged 14 and 18 years. The negroes entered the house and forced the girls to submit to their - desires with drawn revolvers. - Greatexcitement pre vails, and it is thought the 'mob is not through with their work. The names of the girls are Mollie and Sadie Brace. , : Clarke WU1 Take Charge. . ' Boston,' April 28. A Union Pacific official says Clarke wiU soon resign as manager of the Missouri Pacific, with a view, of giving his whole time to the Union Pacific. Hill or Cleveland. ... New York, May 2. There are many New Yorkers who think that when Col. Henry" Watterson has killed off Cleve land as a possibility he will spring Car lisle upon the country as its only sure salvation. The exact date when all this will happen is not known, but maybe posterity will find it out. So much has been said recently about "going west" for a democratic candidate for president that there may have been a tendency to overlook the latent strength which Cleveland possesses among the people of his party in .the west. Is it a small matter for instance, that nine-tenths of the delegates to the Minnesota state democratic convention were given iron clad instructions to vote for Cleveland as the choice of the state? Or is there any significance in the fact that the leading Gray organ of Indiana announced that henceforth Gov. Gray's supporters will support Cleveland as their first choice? It would be idle to deny that Mr. Cleve land's strength before the people is be coming more manifeet as the convention approaches. - Conversely, the weakness of Gov. Hill as a popular man is growing more evident daily. The politicians Fn a national campaign cannot get very far away from, the people. In the west especially there are few political ma chines that are stronger than the pop ular will. Hence, when the politicians begin to put state delegations on record as favoring Cleveland for president, it is merely popular sentiment speaking through the politicians. - . . The Pretentions Millbank. . New York, May 2. Based upon a windy cablegram from London, the sen sational press of this city, was again filled yesterday with forage for scandal hunters, in the shape of explanations concerning Milibanks' last duel "with a Frenchman." The only truths gleaned from the stuff show that it was not, positively, the Due de Morny,..' with whom the alleged fight occurred; nor had the meeting any ' connection with the Drayton-Borrowe scandal.. That a duel took place at all, as described, is very much doubted. The identity of "the Frenchman" has not been fixed. , World's Fair Scandal. 'Chicago, JMay 2.

Two of the "only man" variety of politicians have been developed the last few days.- Perry Belmont is the only man left to assert that Hill would be nominated for president at the national democratic convention, because he was the only man who- could carry New York. A mob of 200 citizens made an ineffect ual attempt Friday night, to lynch the remaining criminal for assault on the Brace girls, negro Grizzard, at Goodlets ville, Tenn. - They" were driven off by police guard.

THE TRACK WAS BADLY TORN UP, Fortunate However From the Fact That No One Was Killed. . MESSENGER APPIEGATE'S ESCAPE. Locomotive Upside Down Luckily the Bight Side Mall Car Telescoped. Tire Broke Oat. Pobtland, April 30. Passenger, ex press, mail and baggage from the north bound S. P. R. train which was wrecked north of Myrtle creek station yesterday morning, reached here this a. m. Pas sengers gratefully expressing themselves that they were fortunately saved from death. The wreck was a deliberately planned one. Two heavy ties had been placed crosswise of the rails,, and stuck under the ties in- the main track so as to clear the pilot. It must have been done by some- one who understood how to place the ties so as to prevent the cow' catcher from throwing them off. The engine was turned bottom side up, and Engineer Morris, who jumped, was badly cut about the head and face. Fireman Galling had a leg broken and was con siderably bruised otherwise. . The mail car was telescoped, but the clerk escaped any injurv: Fire broke out in the mail- car at once, but the agent, with the as sistance of the passengers, succeeded in extinguishing it before much damage was done. All the letters were saved, but the paper mail was nearly all des troyed. None of the passengers were injured. The locomotive was thrown to the right of the track, which was most fortunate, as on the opposite side there is a steep bank eloping to the river, and if the train had gone over the bank, the loss of life would have been fearful. The track was torn up badly for 200 feet. .There is no clue to the perpetra tors. Robbery is supposed to have been the object, but it was given up, perhaps because the train did not leave the track r8 the murderous wreckers bad designed. The, postal, clerk escaped unhurt by a miracle. He was in the back end of the car.tieing up the Roseburg mail.

In spite of the asser tions of Paul Lefargue, the workingmen's deputy, that if the socialists do not carry the day at the municipal elections they will at least cut a prominent figure ; that it is not the intention of the socialists to resort to violence to attain their .ends ; that they will remain within ..Ih.e? law, and whatever manifestatjg ; tuat they may make will be of a- -pwvely peaceful character; there is a dread apprehension that within the next three?;' days from this there will be some blood-wordling reports from . this city. Socialists are certain of majorities in several-places; and Culine, who is now undergoing a long term of imprisonment for unlawful acts at Fourmies, will be selected mayor of that town.. Jules Gnesde, chief of the Guesdist division of the aocialiet part', in reply to questions as to what was proposed to be done ia Paris, said : "I do not know what , the future has in store for as.

A high mountain, overlooking Las Posas, is evidently undergoing the preliminary internal work of a volcano. A peculiar odor, as of burning sulphur mixed with asphaltum, pervades the atmosphere and gives a faint idea of Dante's Inferno. The ground is hot, .and. resembles the covering of a smoldering fire. An at tempt has been made to dig down into this covering, but the workers went no farther than a foot or two, as the heat became too intense. There does not ap pear to be any fissures for the fumes to come out of, and from its appearance it would uot require much excavation to strike the source of the phenomenon. A Mnrder Confessed. WlLKESBABBE, Pa., April 29. A B6U- sdtion was caused here yesterday by the confession of 'Samuel Shiner, of Sugar Loaf, near Hazel ton, of complicity in the murder of the two Kester brothers for $2000, at Seybertsville, Pa., in 1886. The murder was a most mysterious one, and it was not until last October that a clew was found. This led to the arreu't of Henry Higgins, Joseph Evaland and Joseph Gallagher. A few days ago Shiner was taken very sick, and believ ing that he was dying he confessed that he was one of the Kester murderers. "I went to the house with Joe Evaland," be said, "and also two men named Eunkle and Christensen. 1 stood out side while they went in. Evaland shot William Kester and the others clubbed John Kester to death. v Then we divided the spoils." He does . not implicate Gallagher and Higgins, who are now in prison. Shiner will be arrested as soon as he recovers, for the physicians say he ' will be all right again in a few days. Vanderbllt'a Palace. Newport, R. I.', April 30; W. K. Vanderbilt's marble palace at this place, . Marble House, is constructed entirely of marble, and will surpass anything of the kind in the- country, and will not be ex- -celled by any of the famous old bronzes of Europe. The design is French, of the period of Louis the XIV, and is ex tremely chaste and beautiful. : The ex terior work is solid bronze, and the interior is a duplicate of the exterior in wrought iron. ' The doors, or grilles as they are technically termed, will cost more than $50,000. They are twenty five feet in width by sixteen feet in: height, weigh nearly twenty tons, and. fifty men have been at work on them for a year. The portico is supported by enormous marble columne, and is ap proached by a gracefully winding drive way rising from the street at a consider able grade. , A Grimm Old Mlaer. Pakkebtow.v, N. J., April 30. The - old miser, Christian Grimm, whose death in rags occurred here yesterday, . leaves property valued at $00,000. But few people had any idea that the old? man was worth any such amount, as he- appeared on the streets in poor, and generally soiled i clothes. Several years ago Grimm . sent to Germany for his sister to come over and keep bouse for him, bringing with her a daughter about sixteen years of age. Grimm treated them shamefully from the start. Before long the girl was taken sick and died. She was shortly followed to her grave by ber mother. Both deaths, it is believed, were hastened by Grimm's refusal, to buy proper, food for the sick ones. Grimm left no will, and according to the New Jersey laws, if no heir is found, the property will be divided between the stale and Middleton township. ' Belief of the Distressed.
