with them, who was to receive much
greater pay. The Chinese are engag

I.lltls ICork Cyclone.
Little Rik k, Oct. 3. I-ast evening's
cyclone grons in deetructivenets as the
details are gathered. Hark ominous
clouds gathered from the west and south
west, yet the city was unprepared for the
dire visitation that followed in their
wake. The first intimation of the im
pending catastrophe was when the
cyclone struck. All tiie electric lights
were extinguished, and the darkened
streets were filled with flying roofs,
walls arid debris of all kinds. The
cyclone swept up from the soutiiweet,
striking the city near the insane asylum,
the male ward of which was demolished.
There Ir. Ingate was killed and several
inmates seriously injured. It then
passed on to the penitentiary, doing
slight damage at intermediate points.
The second and third stories of the shop
building were blown off, the cell build
ing unroofed, the office destroyed and
the old building scattered broadcast.
One convict was killed, and several
guards injured. Toward the main part
of the city the path of the storm was
strewn with the debris of wrecked build
ings, tangled telegraph and telephone
wires and fallen trees that had withstood
the tempests of many decades. Many
residences were damaged, the roofs
blown away and walls partly demolished.
The next marked damage was when the
storm struck the Martin building, a
large brick building nnd apartment
house, occupied by the Arkansas Meth
odist church, nnd several offices. Gov
ornor Fishback and General Armetead,
I who had rooms in this building, escaped
injury. The colored porter was seriously
injured. From that point east the scene
that met the view of the vast throngs
who flocked thither this morning wae
beyond description. Some of the most
substantial brick structures in the dis
trict lying along Main and Markham
streets, south to Fourth and Fifth, were
razed. The wind was followed by a
drenching rain, that lasted nearly an
hour and kept every one within doors,
so the real extent of the damage could
not be ascertained at tne lime.
Telephone wires in the business por
tion were blown down. Wild rumors of
death and destruction were rife. As
soon aa the rain had abated the streets
were filled by an excited populace. Pe
destriauism was attended with extreme
difficulty, and danger, as there were no
lights, and tangled wires, heaps of brick,
twisted tin roofs, and great plate glass
w indows filled the streets and sidewalks.
Many were the stories of narrow escape
and most sad the deaths. It is a matter
of common wonder hiindredswere not
killed. The police were on the scene
promptly, and everything was done to
restrain the disorderly element from
creating a disturbance. Saloons that
were not entirely destroyed were ordered
closed at midnight by Chief McMahon.
Patrol wagons were pressed into service,
and many of the injured were taken to
the headquarters, where their wounds
were attended to. The storm proper did
not last more than three minutes.
The body of iJr. Ingle was recovered
from the ruins of the asylum at noon,
but so mangled as to be almost unrecog
nizable. Several inmates are missing.
Conservative estimate of the financial
loss on state institutions is $225,000. On
business projierty, $1)00,000. On dwell
Hot Si'binos, Oct. 3. The cyclone

was done to farm property, but no fatal

London, Oct. 3. The secretary of

to proceed further east. It is added that
the sanction of the cabinet is necessary
before further steps are possible. A
dispatch from Portsmouth says rumors
are circulated there regarding extensive
naval preparations. The head of de
partments at the dockyard held a con
ference today, at which opinions of

that the first division of reserve ships

Shanghai, Oct, 3. Native newspa

they have been joined by troops landed
on the bank of the Yalu river, anil oth

force is reported to be entrenching itself
in the most thorough manner possible,
and it is now thought probably the re

On his person were found a lot of loose

Poet Lewis, Island of Maritius, Oct.

was brought here by steamer from
Madagascar. The report appears to

French measures to prevent the landing

The Madagascar papers etate the French
settlers have been warned to repair to
the coast in view of possible hostilities.

London, Oct. 4. English newspapers
have apparently recovered from the scare
caused by the hasty calling of the cabi
net council. The afternoon newspapers
are now unanimous in expressing the
opinion that the.e is not the slightest
cause for anxiety to fear a serious dis
pute w ith France. It seems to be ad
mitted that the cabinet council will not
be called upon to decide anything more
than the protection of British .interests
in China. It seems generally agreed,
however, that the cabinet council will
decide the question of whether British
troops will be sent immediately to treaty
ports of China.
The cabinet council met today. Most
of the ministers were present. Sir Wil
liam Harcourt, chancellor of the ex
chequer, was absent. At the hour of
sending this dispatch the council is still
2 p. m . The cabinet meeting lasted
from noon until 1 :30 p. m. It is under
stood a perfect agreement was reached
respecting the plans submitted for the
British residents in China.
It is announced upon authority, the
cabinet after discussing the state of af
fairs in China, decided to send troops to
that country to protect British interests.
It is also probable additional ships will
be Bent to strengthen the fleet in Chinese
waters, under command of Admiral Free
mantle. It is also said, in consequence
of the day's meeting of the cabinet, the
British legation at Peking will shortly
be guarded ky Britieh bluejackets and
native Indian soldiers.
McKinley Going to Nebraska.
Belleville, Kan.. Oct. 4- Gov
ernor McKinley passed through here
today on his way to Nebraska. Fully
8300 people assembled at Clay Center to
see him. "We are engaged this year,"
said the governor, "in a contention
among ourselves whether we retain the
American markets nnd work shops.
The republican party believes in retain
ing both." Three cheers for McKinley,
the next president of the United States,
were given at Clifton. Some one asked
how about silver, to which McKinley
replied: "You must ask the democrats.
They are in full control of the govern
ment and have absolute power to do
whatever they please."
Corgla Klectlon Ke.ultn-
Ati.anta, Oct. 4. Enough reports
have been received by the Atlanta
Journal up to noon to indicate an aver
age democratic majority of 20,000 to
25.000. Atkinson, democratic nominee
for governor, has been scratched in all
parts of the state, and his majority will
not exceed 15,000. Tim democrats will
have 30 majority in the senate ami 15 in
the house. FCvery congressional district
except Black's and Watson's went for
the democrats. A great surprise is the
defeat of Warner Hill, a prominent can
didate for speaker of the house. His
county went with the populists.
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 4. Returns
from accessible points Indicate Atkin's
majority for governor at 30,000, and the
state ticket will probably receive about
10,000 more. Probably 40 populist
members of the legislature have been
elected. Tim democratic majority last
year was tV,000. Speaker Crisp's dis
trict shows a falling off. Most of the
districts represented by free silver dele
gates have furnished populist gains. All
senatorial calculations have been up
set by the increased representation of
populists in the legislature.

Highest of all in leavening Power. Latest U.S. Gov't Report
has been brought about by the
introduction of CottolF.NE, the
new vegetable shortening. The
discovery of this product, and the
demonstration of its remarkable
