Homeless People Stood Out in a Driving
Storm All Night Now Provided
Omaha, June 14. The town of Her
mans, Neb., is totally destroyed. Train
No. 2, on the Omaha road, palled into
Herman just after the storm, and its
crew began the work of rescue; nearly
100 persons were brought back to Blair.
This morning relief and assistance were
sent to the homeless people, many of
whom had been out in the rain all night.
A larger number whose names are not
reported are severely injured, while half
of those reported have received possibly
Story of an Eye Witness.
Blaib, Neb., June 14. One of the
beat descriptions of the storm was re
ceived from J. A. Kelley, a Council
Bluffs traveling man.
"When it reached a point to the north
west we were terrified to see it suddenly
change its course and make directlv for
the town. We all hurried into the cellar
and saw no more of the tornado, but we
knew by the frightful din that it was
working bavoc in the town. When it
bad passed, we emerged from the cellar
and found that the bouse bad been
wrecked and that every building in town
bad been blown down with the exception
of an isolated' few on the outskirts. The
tornado swept right down the main
street, crushing the buildings as though
they were eggshells. The only brick
building of importance in the town was
"After the storm I do not recall seeing
it and I presume it, too, was destroyed.
The town was a pile of debris soaking
with water. In front of us we could see
horses, pigs, and frame buildings all
heaped together. I conld not eay bow
manv persons were killed or bow many
were injured. I saw several dead and
many wounded. Of course there were
many still alive after the storm and they
did all they could to assist in the work
of rescue. When the first train left I

Herman, Neb., June 14. Ten were
killed and about twenty injured in last
night's tornado. It is thought all are
now accounted for, unless the storm has
been more disastrous in the country than
anticipated. Not a single building in
the town is left whole.
The Dead at New Richmond.
New Richmond, Wis., June 14. No
bodies were recovered from the tornado
ruins last night, The work is being
abandoned on account of a heavy rain
and exbauetion of the working parties.
It is expected the task of looking for the
dead will proceed with greater Euccess
than yesterday. The number still in the
ruins is variously estimated from 50 to
AH morning long funerals were passing
through the town. There were no hearses
and the dead were carried to the graves
in grocery wagons. No more bodies have

I awoke last night with severe pains
in my stomach. I never felt so badly in
all my life. When I came down to work
this morning I felt so weak I could hardly
work. I went to Miller & McCurdy's
drug store and they recommended
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Remedy. It worked like magic
and one dose fixed me all right. It
certainly is the finest thing I ever used
for stomach trouble. I shall not be
without it in my borne hereafter, for
I ehould not care to endure the sufferings
of last night again for fifty times its
price. G. H. Wilson, Liveryman, Bur-

Denver, Colo., June 14. Three thou
sand employes of the trust smelters in
Denver, Pueblo and Leadvllle, walked
out at noon today, having extinguished
the fires in the big furnaces and put
everything in perfect order for the sea
son of idleness. All shipments of ore and
fual to the smelters have been ordered
stopped. As a result many coal mines
are preparing to reduce their production,
and some will close. Almost every in
dustry in the state will be affected.

Washita, I. T. He writes:
"Four bottles of Electric Bitters has
cured Mrs. Brewer of Ecrofula, which bad
caused her great suffering for years.
Terrible sores would break out on her
head and face, and the best doctors
could give no help; but her cure is com
plete and her health is excellent." This
shows what thonsands have proved,
that Electric Bitters is the best blood
purifier ' known. It's the supreme
remedy for eczema, tetter, salt rheum,
ulcers, boils ' and running sores. It
stimulates liver, kidneys and bowels,
expels poisons, helps digestion and
builds up the strength. Only 50 cents.

" THE TRUST
Says Tariff Injures Claims if Tariff
Were off Cuban Sugar, Refined
Sugar Would Be Three Cents a
Washington, June' 14. Henry O.
Havemeyer, president of the American
Sugar Refining Company, was examined
by the industrial commission today in
connection with the investigation of
trusts. His testimony related almost
wholly to the sugar industry, and he
opened with a vigorous attack upon the
customs tariff, which he declared was
the "mother of all trusts," becoming
such, by providing "an inordinate pro
tection to manufactured articles."
The attack was made in -a written
statement, whicb he read. Havemeyer
asserted that a tariff of 10 per cent was
as high as any tariff should be. He con
tended that sugar is discriminated
against in the tariff in the interest of
Louisiana canegrowers, beet-sugar-makers
and the eugar-makers of the
Hawaiian islands. To these interests,
he contended, the United States contri
buted $24,000,000, which was taken out
of the pockets of the people.
Replying to questions by Professor
Jenks, after be had concluded reading
bis paper, Havemeyer said the American
company was capitalized for much less
than it was worth. "But for the clamor
against trusts," he said, "it could be
sold for three times its capitalization."
Yet the refineries could, be duplicated
$35,000,000 to $40,000,000. "The present
capacity of the trnst is," he said, "45,
000 barrels a day and the output 30,000."
