L W. Helltanu of the Xevndn bank,
when asked this morning for his views,
relative to tho passage of the silver
bill, spoke as follews: "I think thai
the'. measure will be of incalculable
benefit, not only lo the Pacific coast,
but lo the whole cf western America.
The effect will bo to make money
much easier out west, and to reopen
mines in Xevadu and Arizona that
closed down on account of the low
price of silver. The good effect in
fact, may be said to be felt already,
as this morning it is telegraphed that
silver is quoted at S1.09 per ounce. 1
thin!: that congress acted wisely in
passing the bill, and believe it will
lend eventually to free coinage."

JIix:aLroiiis, July 14. At an early
honr this morning a special train took
correspondents of the United Press
from St. Paul to the scene of the ter
rible cyclone. No sign of the terrible
havoc wtis visible until the top of the
bill overlooking the little valley was
reached, where on the side of tho liill
was seen a house belonging to Air.
Harris, with f lie roof blown ofi' and
part of the south side blown away,
but buildings were .eotlered about in
a bad condition.
No one was burl at this point, but a
quarter of a mile north the whole scene
of destruction lay spread before the
eye along the shore. At a point where
the storm turned ami crossed the lake
wore trie houses of Sshnrmeier and
Good, and another house iu which
each had an interest. Ail these were
lolally demolished. All the trees in
the neighborhood were torn, twisted,
and stripped of bark and limbs, and
from Hie mangled trunks of many
hung articles of clothing.
In the lake arc the bodies of horses
Skv.'ing amid heaps of boards and
house timbers. Here probablv will be
fonutl lito bodies of the missing, as
they could not bo found in thestacked
up b:ard, and furniture on the land.
As an iliuslration of the force of
the wind, iron pipe were torn from
the well iu front or the Good resi
dence, twisted and bent almost double,
and deposited 50 yards from tho well.
On lhe edge of the water is a pile of
boards covered with turf, lifted from a
swamp 200 yards away. Strewn all
about are pieces ot furniture, baoks
The wells and eellcrs are tilled to
tho top with bnilding debris, and in
the Schurmeier cellar, lie the mangled
remains of a horee. The ground
about those houses has the appearance
from a dlstauce of having been gone
over with a plow, while from this
point .: to Gaetskes, lre:$ are blown

St. PxOTi, July II. A married
daughter of Mr. Good, who was in her
father ; cottage when destroyed at
Lake Gervais, telis the foliowiug
stery: '-All our family were iu the
house wailing upon compauy. Wo
saw the storm approaching, and some
of 11 to household suggested that wo
get into the cellar. The storm looked
as if it were coming right down on the
houses of Schurmeier and ours. My
husband and I were standing at the
window, wlrile others were scattered
around the house, all suggesting some
place of security. After a few mo
ments a great spinning cloud reached
the center of the lake. I saw tho
water divido and overflow the banks
forty feet. As papa was looking out
ot the door ho saw tho trees near the
Mullanehes cottage crash beneath the
whirl of the wind. The Mullauche
collage was then swept away and our
barn thrown broadside against our
"Just at tins time my hnsbaud threw
me bodily down ihe cellar stairs and I
landed in the potato bin. Then he
threw Miss lving. and Mr. McPherson
jumped after. My husband then
tumbled down, and called upon the
othero to follow. Tho building
crushed in upon us; then portions of it
were hurled skyward. Then a huge ice
chest fell jnto the ccller, and pinned
us all down. As we lay there in pain
ful refuge, we heard the Schurmeier
house, alxjnt fifteen feet from our
SIOM THE OCEAXT BEACH,
house crash and scatter its timbers in
all directions, and for 15 minutes
timbers and furniture from both
houses were hurled about the site of
sAf ter our release from the cellar,
we began looking for members of the
household. We found them scattered
about. Miss Minnie lay m the road,
her head and mouth bleeding badly.
Carrie, her sister, was pinned under a
tree and hurt internally. George
Miller lay dead and mangled in the
road. His wife was also buried be
neath the wreck and hurt badly. Mrs.
Hastings and her daughter Stella,
were bruised badly and the former
will lose tho sight of one eye."
F1SD1XG THE XSODICS.
From 125 to 150 Persons Were
Special to Tiik Astokiax
Red Wixg. Minn., July 14. During
the night fifty-live bodies were re
covered, and this morning up to 10
o'clock soven more had been pulled
out. At 1030 the bodies of a woman
and child, to which ropes had been
attached, were drawn from the water.
The child was the daughter of John
Winters, of Eed Wing. Fred Zeivers,
a blacksmith, was taken out a few
minutes later, making a total of sixty
five, which is probably about half the
total number drowned.
From early morning a patrol of row
boats has been kept up all over the
neighborhood of the wreck, looking
for bodies, and several were found in
that way last night. A small boy
was found floating and yelling threo
nules down the lake from the see 'e of
tho disaster. Battery "A,M of St.
Paul, kept up a cannondiug during
the day, trying to raise bodies, but
A tug this morning pulled out the
shattered wreck of the iSea Wing, re
leasing three bodies, one woman and
two men. Alice Palmer of Trenton,
was one of these, but the two men
had not been identified up to 1
o'clock. That makes a total of GS
bodies now found. Estimates vary
as to the number of the dead. There
were over 200 people on the steamer
aud barge, when they started to return
to Eed Wing, a very few remaining
behind on account of the storm, al
though many protested against the
proposal to steam up the lake, in tho
face of such a gale as was then blow
ing. Of the whole number it is known
positively that about fifty were saved.
More may have escaped, but only this
many are known at this time to bo
safe." That would leave about 150
victims, but everyone hopes the num
ber may not go beyond 125. A goodly
number are still in the wreck and a
great many on tho bottom of the lake
at the point where the galo first struck
the steamer. Just how many are lost
will not be known for some time yet,
possibly not for several days.

The evening Telegram says: "The

for tho attendant who was with him

Ho came from Ireland a few years
ago. He became mentally diseased
and was sent to the hospital February
last. He was seized with la grippe in
March. His attendants found great
difficulty in keeping him awake, and
finally he fell into a deep sleep. A
lack of nourishment was evident by
his decreasing weight, deathlike
pallor, and pinched wan features,
accompanied by corp3e-liko rigidity
with no animation.
All efforts to pry open the set jaws
for the administration of food proved
futile. Then a silver tube wtts inserted

in milk, and a varying liquor diet was
administered, together with medicine.

The Biggest Mill on Earth.
Charles Hanson, of the big Tacoma
mill, has traveled extensively and
tells some interesting things to
Wea77i oftJie West about what lae saw
Tho biggest saw mill on earth, he
says is in Christiana, Norway, and
owned by one man. It has a capacity
of 1,000,000 feet in a day (eighteen
hours). It runs 36 gang saws, though,
they are much smaller than the ones
used in this section; it is fitted up
with circular saws and their Troll
machinery similar to ours. It has six
plaining mills. From 40 to 50 ships
load at one time at its docks. In
connection with, this mill, and owned
by the same man, are two largo flour
mills. The London yard of this mill
extends more than one mile in length.
The lumber shipped is all seasoned,
some of it in kilns and the rest by pil
ing. The greatest care is exercised in
keeping the floor clean and white. In
some parts of tho world the men who
unload it are not allowed to wear
boots but must go in there bare feet.
The lumber is manufactured much,
smoother than in this country
as the saws are not crowded
as much as here. It is cut to
exact gauge and so evenly cut to
length that when piled the ends' are
almost as even a3 the face of a brick
wall. The extent of the traffic in lum
ber on the Baltic ocean can be com
prehended when 500 vessels laden with
lumber were seen by Mr. Hanson in
one day on that body of water. En
gland, Ireland and Scotland absorb
annually 3,700,000,000 feet of lumber.
The English people have a fancy for
white floors, hence the Norway pine is
the popular lumber in that country.
The forests of Norway are good for
500 years, iu fact under the present
system one might say for ever.
When a piece of timber land
has been cut over it is at once
thickly replanted; at the end of a
few years is it gone over again and the
poor trees cut out to give
room - for tho good one3.
The lumber of Norway is the
great barrier against whicb the Pa
cific coast lumbermen must always
All lumbermen know Mr. Hanson's
big mill at Tacoma, that can cut a
a half million in twenty
four hours but when a
captain of a vessel from Norway,
that was loading at his docks inti
mated that "it was a good little mill,"
but that that there was one in Nor
way two or three times as large, he de
cided to see the biggest mill on earth.
He was not disappointed, for tho Nor
wegian captain had spoken truly.
