A SAND LOT DEMONSTRATION.
San Fjjancisco, Iny 24. A

at the sand lots at about eight
o'clock and took up the march
down Market street, the route be
inir to Kearney, to Montgomery
avenue, to Montgomery street, to
Market and back to the sand lots.
About 3000 were in line, including
musicians, boys, etc. Crowds
lined the sidewalks and cheered
the procession as it passed. The
transparencies borne in the line
were, to a great extent, devoted
to ridicuhiiir the Chronicle and its

Mr. D. S. Dunlmr. who lives half
a mile from the ColuniLia river ami
two mile east of Portland, gives the
Dee some interesting particulars of the
terrible storm of hail that sneni. over
that pari of the ooimtrv WedneiKlay
j AT X. . T, , , - , , , . ,i
Mav21st. It was about .)o clock in the
nftJrnoi,n that a roaring sound of
I noise was heard over in Washington
! territorv. This was ten minutes in
advauce of the tcitije,st, which struck
the Columbia river, followed upstream
a short distance. and thence
south in the vicinity of Fairiw church
on the Columbia slough. The storm
covered a strip of country about two
J miles wide, and was accompanied by
heavy thunders and sharp lightning.
Jt lasted about half an horn, and is
described by Air. Dunbar as a scene
of iudt'scrihahh' fury and terror. The
:r nind was left cover d to the depth
of two inches with hail, some of which
measured two and one-half inches in
circumference. It had a disastrous
eifect on crops and fruit, batting down
fields of growing grain and leaving
thetn badly cut up. while nearly all
the black berries, currants, cherries
and apples were lieateit from the trees
and vines. The clover fields apjH?ar
to le cut in pieces and In-aten down
boytuid redemption, while gardens,
crly potatoes, strawberries, etc., are
actually demolished. In some instan
ces windows are broken. Passing south
from there ihe storm seemed t join
forces with black clouds coming from
some other direction, and passed on
like a messenger of rain.
The velocity of this storm and its
fierceness may le judged from the
fact that one hour after crossing the
Columbia river it swept over Salem,
fifty miles distant. The direction of
the storm for fifty nrlcs was southwest
by south. It was proceeding with mi
aliatcd fun when it reached Salem,
and must have left a swa-h of devas
tation for all that distance, of a mile
and half to two miles wide, and no
