A VICIOUS CYCLONE
Turns Out a Genuine Ar
UPSETS MOST OF LITTLE ROCK
And Does Immense Damage to Both
1,1 fe and Property The Japs -Still
Little Book Cyclone.
Little Rock, Oct. 3. Last evening's
cyclone grows in deatrnctivenesa as the
details are gathered. Dark 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 the electric lights
were extinguished , and the darkened
streets were filled with flying roofs,
walls and debris of all kinds. The
cyclone swept np from the southwest,
striking the city near the insane asylum,
the male ward of which was demolished.
There Dr. 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
v 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.
a tThe next marked damage was when the
jtorm struck the Martin building, a
iarge' briek building and -apartment
house, occupied by the Arkansas Meth
odist church, and several offices. Gov
ornor Fishback and General Armstead,
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 was
- 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 the lime.
Telephone wires in the business por
tion were blown down. Wild rumors of
death and destruction were "rife. As
soon as the rain had abated the streets
were filled by an excited populace. Pe
destrianism 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
windows filled the streets and sidewalks.
Many were the stories of narrow escape
and most sad the deaths. It is a matter,
of common wonder hundreds were 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 Dr. Ingle was recovered
from the ruins of the asylum at noon,
but so mangled as to be almost nnrecog-
nizable. Several inmates are missing.
Conservative estimate of the financial
loss on state institutions is $225,000. On
business property, $600,000. On dwell
Hot Spkikgs, Oct. 3. The cyclone
which did so much damage to Little
. Bock last evening, passed north' ot this
city a few miles. .Reports from that
section today say considerable damage
y was done to farm property, but no fatal
ities are reported.
Looks Like War Preparations.
London, Oct. 3. The secretary of
state lor foreign affairs, the Earl of Kim
berly, has been in communication with

the Indian government, and prepara
tions have been made to concentrate
English and Indian troops in readiness
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 heads of de
partments at the dockyard held a con
ference today, at which opinions of
officers were taken regarding the time
that the first division of reserve ships
could be in readiness to put to sea. The
dispatch adds that the training squad
ron's departure for the West Indies has
been postponed from Saturday to
Wednesday, and if necessary the cruise
of this squadron will be abandoned and
the men on the training ships be trans
ferred to ships which will be shortly
A. Decisive Rattle.
Shanghai, Oct, 3. Native newspa
pers confirm reports that 5000 Japanese
troops have landed in the northeastern
part of Corea. It is reported the Chinese
soldiers who retreated from Ping Yang
have taken up a position at Kgan, where
they have been joined by troops landed
on the bank of the Yalu river, and oth
ers from Shing King. This Chinese
force is reported to be entrenching itself
in the most thorough manner possible,
and it is now thought probably the re
sult of the war will be decided in the bat
tle which it is expected must surely be
fought at Ngan. The Chinese authori
ties of this city attempted to arrest a
Japanese traveling from Manchuria,
suspected of being a spy. The police
handed him over to the American con
sul. ' A Batch of War Notes.

To Discuss Chinese Affairs.
London, Oct. 3.Officials of the for
eign office deny the summoning of the
cabinet tomorrow is due to a hitch in
the negotiations with France regarding
Madagascar. They say the reason is the
necessary discussing of important inter
national questions, one of the chief sub
jects to be brought up being the safety
of British subjects resident in China. A
dispatch was received at the foreign
office today from the British consul at
Peking stating be was making arrange
ments to insure the safety of British
residents of the Chinese capital.

penses of the war. . .

A Yankee Skipper's Cordwood.
Capt. Bobbins had an experience
with the peculiar taxes in Sicily, says
the Portland (Me.) Press. - He took
over a cargo of - oil from Philadelphia
to Marseilles and had thirty cords of
ordinary four foot firewood to pack the
oil barrels with to prevent their roll
ing. It is called, by . the sailors oil
wood." He paid fbr this wood 6n6.hun
dred aijd fifty dollarf in Philadelphia.
He did not sell in Marseilles because he
expected to get more for it' -in Trapani.
But the dealers there offered, him only
fifteen dollars for the whole of it, say
ing that the enormous tax upon it
would notjallow them to offer more.
He declared that he'd bring it back to
America before he'd sell it at that
price, and so he did, and it is here in
Portland now, after traveling eight
thousand miles over the. -ocean, and it
may go three thousand more, because
if he can't get a decent price for it here
he will take it back to England, where
he is going from here with spool wood.
There he can get about one hundred
dollars for it. England doesn't want
cordwood. She lias got enough coal,
and less is paid for cordwood there than
A Bengalese magistrate, having been
informed of the whereabouts of a mad
dog, armed himself and went to the
place where the rabid animal lay by a
house door. He learned upon inquiry
that two women were in the house and
sent word to them that he was about to
shoot the dog, and, therefore, they
should not be alarmed by the report,
and that as he might not inflict a fatal
wound at the first fire, and, in fact,
miirht miss, they should remain within
until notified. "Such a supreme cour
tesy is in marked contrast with that of
