, Spokane, July 6. A terrific cyclone
passed over Montana yesterday. The
amount of rain and hail that fell and the
freqaency of the lightning were unpre
cedented at Helena. In ten minutes an
inch of ruin fell. Hail came down like
bullets, and the leaves of trees all over
town show clean, round holes. People
who were caught ont in the storm had to
seek shelter until its cessation. The
wind that preceded, the rain and hail
blew 50 miles an hour, leveling trees and
fences. Lightning struck' the Scandina
vian church, entering the steeple, when it
divided into several bolts and flew in all
directions. The steeple and part of the
church were wrecked, and the. parsonage
was badly damaged. Rev. Henry Lin
derman, the pastor, bis wife and 4-year-old
child were shocked, but not seriously
hurt. The child has'; a -distinct bine
streak down one arm: Several persons
in the neighborhood of the church were
prostrated by the shock.' The church
was set on lire, but the flames were
Tlie Colored " People.
Chicago, July 6. This appears to be
the year of national conventions. The
colored people now in session in Cin
cinnati are discussing matters of inter
est to their race. One of the speakers
yesterday, D. A. Budd, discussed- the
situation with more than ordinary
intelligence. A number of other speech
es were made reciting southern outrages
etc. A resolution was adopted appealing
to the American people for justice;
against murder and violence, robbery
extortion, hasty and cruel judgements,
and against fierce mobs; appealing to
the colored people to bear in mind their
prosperity and advancements depend
upon themselves; they must practice
industry, economy, sobriety ; be
orderly, law-abiding and honest, that
they may win the reputation of good
citizens. The resolution declares that
the interests of the colored people re
quire the establishment of a literary
academy, where colored . youths may
acquire a thorough practical and engin
eering education. The .resolution de
clares that Washington is best suited for
the location of such an institution, and
the project is submitted to the consider
ation 'of the United States. . -
THE DALLlCS FINANCES.
Mayor Maya Message---Financial State
The common council of Dalles Citv,
met at 10 o'clock" a. in. yesterday, Mayor
Robert Mays presiding. Present, Coun
cilmen Haight, Joles, Kreft, I.auer and
Bonds were presented and approved
for the recorder elect, Frank Menefee ;
marshal elect, Dan Maloney ; and treas
urer elect, L. Rorden.
The following .standing committees
were appointed :
Judiciary Dufur, Haight and . Maier.
Finance Maier, Joles and Kreft. .
Fire and water Haight, Lauer arid
- Streets - and - public property Kreft,
Dufur and Lauer.
Mayor .Mays submitted . his annual
message as'followsr ; ."' '
One year has passed since I first as
sumed the duties of Mayor of Dalles
City, and while I am not now prepared
to make a detailed statement of the con
dition of 'the city's finances, I desire to
call your' attention to some of the affairs
of the ciy which seem to me to require
attention at your hands in ' the near
future. V -
I shatl, in the near future, present for
yonr consideration a full statement, of
the citiy's finances ; I feel that notwith
standing the loss suffered by the great
fire of September 2d, 1891, and the con
sequent increase in the contingent ex
pense's, the city is in a good and healthy
condition financially; our city warrants
are readily disposed of at par and the
regular contingent expenses of the city
are regularly met.
Our fire department is well equipped
bo far as apparatus is concerned ; lint
the fire department is in need of an en
gine house with its appurtenances; I
urge upon' you the necessity of giving
this your early consideration that this
need may be supplied. I would recom
mend that if an engine house be built
that it be placed upon the ground now
occupied as temporary quarters; that
the lot formerly occupied as an engine
house be disposed of, as soon, as a fair
price can bn obtained therefor, and that
the proceeds be used to cover the ex
pense of a new bouse. I would further
recommend that when a new engine
house be built that the 'City hall and
jail be -thoroughly repaired, that they
receive a hew roof and new floors and
such other repairs as will make the
building safe and comfortable.
While all of the interests of the city
should receive great care and your best
consideration, iu addition to the fire de
partment, to which I have called your
particular attention. I shall be pleased
to see you guard with the utmost vigi
lance the finances of the city. You are
choBen by the people of this municipal
ity to look after and care for their interr
efts; your ability to do. this is unques
tioned and I shall at all times take pleas
ure in assisting you in the discharge of
Hoping that we may at all times work
together"with harmony and pleasantly,
I remain, Very Respectfully,
Robeht Mays, Mavor.

Fatal Oversight in Tbe Senate Passing:

Washington City"'ly The Free
Washington, July 6. If it be true, -as
representative Culberson of Texas
says, that the senate made a fatal over
sight in passing the silver, bill, in that it
failed to reserve, in the repeal of the act
of 1890, the legal tender qualify of coin
notes issued under that act, and also de
stroyed the authority of the secretary of
the treasury to redeem them, the effect
will be to demonetize more than - f 100,
000,000 of coin notes, and postpone their
redemption until congress authorizes it.
Tho house wiil bo compelled to amend
the bill, and thus the session may be
After Major Handbnry.
Voktland, July 6. The committee of
citizens forcing conclusions for more free
bridges, are arranging for a trip to
Washington city .to investigate Maj.
Handbury. It i quite probable that
the entire delegation will proceed in a
body. A. D. Charlton, of the Korthern '
Pacific Railroad company, has kindly
tendered the use of a special car to con
vey the delegates from Portland to Chi
cago. He will also make arrangements '
to convey the delegation from Chicago to
Washington over the Baltimore and Ohio
road. This special car has been ordered,
and will be ready to convey the dele
gation eastward tomorrow morning.

-Wasco News. While it is an undeni
able fact that the. crops of Sherman -county
are in a. bad condition, yet we do
not believe that they are so far gone as
some of onr exchanges would have us
believe. " Statements in some of our ex- -changes
are to the effect that the. wheat
crops in this county are entirely burned -up.'
There will be considerable wheat
threshed iu Sherman county this year,
though not by any means the amount
i mere was iasi year, .-ouie oi our larm-
ers "claim that they will have wheat to
sell this fall. Some, of course, will not
raise seed, but there will be plenty raised-,
to seed the county and some for export
Tho crops are short, there is no denying.
that fact, but there will be more wheat
raised than many think. Thos who
know say that the prospects are better
this year than they were thrt-e years ago.
Considered a Freak. -m
Chicago News. There was one "we- .
view-with-alarm" in the democratic
platform, and its appearance was greeted
with derision. But how docn it happen
l that the platform contains no "we-point-
with-prides"? The omission of so es
sential, time-honored and immemorial a
phrase cannot but be detrimental to the .
democratic cause among the residents of
those back counties where a platform
without it is considered a freak.-
One Lone Sheep.
Grant County News. Last Thursday
a huge mountain sheep wandered down
from the everlasting crags and peaks of
Canyon mountain to Myers' mine near
the creek a mile" and a half above town,
and grazed around until the miners went
to the cabin and brought forth the
trusty rifle. They got him. Mountain
eheep and ibex were numerous in these
high mountains in early days,.' but
hunters have thinned their ranks.
