from w York show that there is a

better, and shall shortly resume work at

profit in silver at SO cents for us, but it
will pay expenses."
"The feeling ia much better than it
was a few days ao," said W. II. Jakes,
of the Omaha and K. Grant smelter.
"We cannot count with any certainty

we hear from the government regarding

of the state are inclined to accept the

with visitors and th demonstration w as

the mineral palace in the Occidental
square, and the battle ship Monterey,
which lay in tlie harbor. The former
contniud minerals from all over the

display of natural wealth and genus
never before witnessed. The Monterey

He bad arranged for two strong search

j Fomia, lx., July 7. One of the most
' ''reaiUul calamities in thehi-torv of this
state visited this section last evening.
A cycloi1 started southeast of here
about 7 o'clock last evening and swept
almost due east, leveling everything in
its path for a w idth of 1,00 yard-, kill
ing and maiming the inhabitants in the
towns and tliictly populated farming
districts. As far as heard from, the
calamity took its most (rightful form at
I'otiieroy, a town of about SON) popula
tion. Iteports received are to the effect
that the entire town, except 30 houses,
was swept from the face of the earth.
One hundred people are killed, and 200
injured, many of whom will die. As
soon as the news of the disaster was
learned, special trains, with physicians
and nurses, went from here and Kort
Iodge, and every able-bodied man in
the vicinity lent a helping hand to the
wounded and dying. The wounded w ere
found lying all about the streets, l
The scene was appalling as men with
lanterns went about in the debris. In
some instances entire families were
wiped out. Mangled remains were
found in the ruint of the homes. The
work of rescue was slow, and the train
loads of helpers made but little head
way. The south half of tho town is
razed. The church, just opposite the
track of the storm, was turned into a
hospital. Here the surgeons worked by
the aid of lanterns ami lamps. Those
with broken bones were stretched upon
the pews, while those less severely in
jured were compelled to lie on the floor
awaiting their turns. The dead were
laid out on the ground on a vacant lot
at the edge of a devastated block.
Through the aisles between the bodies
the snrvivors ssed lookiug for lost
At the approach of the storm, which
imparted a greenish tint, followed by
darkness and what appeared to lie a
column of smoke, many sought shelter
in their cellars, and others mounted
horses to flee from the path of destruc

IUmuvki.i., Ky., July 7. Tho name
given by tlie ravisher ami murderer of
the two innocent girls is Charles Miller,
but it is l!ieved ho is tho negro who
has been in the habit of giving glass

of the country. The negro savs ho has
not been in Kentucky recently, but a
coat foiod at the scene of the crimes fits
him, aud rings found on him were iden
tified as stolen Sunday night it Clinton,
Ky. A fislifrrruan who saw the fellow
ocross tlie river the evening of the mur
der identities him as the man. By 11
o'clock the crowd gathered here num
bered thousands, and when he was taken
from the train a mad rush wag made
and nothing could be heard above tho
shouts of the angry multitude. Finally
the father of the murdered girls mounted
a stand and taid :
"This it the man who killed my chil
dren. Li js burn him at the proper
time, hut let ua keep quiet."
The crime for which the negro is to
suffer such a penalty was the ravishing
and murder of Mary and Ruby Ray,
aged 16 and 12 years, who were picking
berries Wednesday morning near their
home. A bloody coat found on the
scene proved a good clew. The peniten
tiary blood hounds were given scenfof
the coat, and they followed tho trail to
the Mississippi river. Tho ferryman
said he ferried over a yellow negro. The
dojrs were taken across the river and
followed the trail to Bird's Point. There
it was learned the man had been ar

Nwpokt, R. I., July 7. Associate
Justice Samuel Blatchford, of the United
States supreme court, passed quietly
and peacefully from earth at 7:20 this
evening. He retained consciousness un
til an hour or two before his death.
There was no sudden change in his con
dition, simply a gradual slipping away,
which had been taking place for the last
week. The arrangements for the funeral
are not at yet completed, but the body
will probably be taken to Washington
for interment. For many seasons the
dead jurist had been a quiet visitor to
this city during the summer season, and
w hile not greatly given to society follow
ing, he was frequently entertained in
the first families.
A i'rehtfttorta City Discovered.

kind have yet been discovered.

New Yokk, July 7. The Herald says
Archbishop Corrigan has practically de

Monsignore Satolli directed the arch
bishop to restore Dr. Richard L. Durs

from which he was transferred three
years ago to Rondout, X. Y., for defend

parish in this city equally important as

instruction, referred the matter to the

Four Persons Were Drowned and
Many Others Had Narrow Es

Chicago, July 9. A furious wind and
rain atorm passed over the city between
5 and G o'clock this evening, and caught
fmony a craft on Lake Michigan. Four
persons are known to have been
drowned, and in seveval cases boats
were capsized and narrow escapes from
drowning were had. By the capsizing
of the sailing yacht Chesapeake, near
the life saving station, the occupants
were thrown into the water and four
were drowned. Their bodies were not
recovered. The dead are Themistocles
Fiambolis, William B. Cornish, Ethel
II. Chase and Harvey Marlow.
At the world's fair grounds little dam
age was done to buildings, but the pas

balloon came down none too soon, for
the passengers were barely out the

flattened out and trembled under the
terrible force. Then, with a succession
of cracks, the giant silk covering was
rent completely in two and the halfs
were blown in different directions. The
loss is aliout $35,000. Two boys who

Portland, Me., July 8. The steamer

having been sufficiently calculated con

City ok Mkyico, July h. Senator
Stewart, of Nevada, who is now in the
city, conferred w ith President Diaz to
day on the silver question. Tho senator
in an interview said :
"The desperate effort of the gold com
bination to convert contracts payable in
silver info contracts payable in gold
alone, by the destruction of more than
half of the metallic money of the world,
is producing its legitimate fruits in
bringing bankruptcy and misery upon
the people. It whb necessary for Glad
stone with his slender majority to act
quickly and to suspend coinage in India.
It is equally necessary to have an extra
session of the United States congress to
force action before gold contraction could
be realized. But' many bankruptcies
have occurred, and they will arouse the
people to resist the consummation of the
resolution to reduce our basis of circula
tion and credit more then one-half.
The scheme will fail. The Sherman act
will not be repealed unless something
better is substituted for it.
