Sax Fiuxctsco, Aug. 20. To-morrow
morning tho freight conductors
and brakenien of tho western division
of tho Southern Pacific railroad will
decide whether or not thoy will go on
a strike. Their action depends upon
tho decision of tho comapny upon tho
proposition of advancing wages. The
conductors, who now get S85 per
month, demaud S100, and the brake
men want an advance from SOS to $75,
as stated in last Monday's dispatches.
The belief prevails to-day that the
company, fearing the disastrous con
sequences of a striko with Admission

grant the men's demands, or compro
mise with them by a reduction in time.
However, General Superintendent
Fillmore will be asked to give the

corps of the Boyal Engineers left here
and anchored off McNabb's island,
where Corporal Nichols went down in
a diving suit in about 100 feet of
water after an anchor to which a
chain -was to be attached. After he
had been down some time those
above observed that something was
wrong, as they could get no signal
from him. After six hours the life
less body of Nichols was taken from
the water. Nichols was 100 feet
under tho water and had attached a
rope to tho heavy anchor in order to
have it hauled to the surface, when
the rope in some way became en

order to get clear, and the anchor fell

Special b7 Tho TLsitkd Press.
Wilkesharre, Pa, Aug. 20. This
morning the city presents a scene of
awful devastation. After the cyclone
spent its fury last night, darkness fol
lowed so quickly that it was impossi
ble to gather much inteliigcuce as to
tho extent of the damage and loss of
life. About 530 last night thunder
and lightning began and evident heavy
rain soon fell. All who could sought
shelter. Later it was noticed in the
vicinity of Leo pari: that the lower
clouds began scudding in great circles
at a terrific speed. A sudden gust ot
wind sprang up, and in a moment in
creased to a roar. Tho Vulcan
iron works, James Norris foundry
and Jveystone llounng mill hrst felt
tho shock. Heavy inaterifil of till
descriptions was dashed about like
chaff. Main street was directly in
tho path and buildings on the west
side suffered badly. All the trees in
lin street a brick dwelling was un
roofed. The Barber Asphalt Works
and Brown & Co.'s business block,
comprising ten wholesale stores, the
Murray coal breaker and Hollenbeck
breakers were so badly damaged that
they will have to be rebuilt. Thej
upper 6tories were torn away audi
some were leveled to tho ground.!
Fallen trees and timbers have block
aded the streets. The cyclone carried
disaster in its path along tho railroad
to Five Points, where it turned cast
ward again up Pearl street by Shaft.
It then dashed up tho moun
tain and spent itself in
tho woods. Tho sweep of tho cyclone
at Five Points was terrible. Frail
houses were-blown away, and tho air
was filled with debris from tho fallen
buildings. Mothers clasping children
were seen calling to heaven for aid.
Men and women rushed hither and
thither, not knowing what to do. On
Scott street the houses occupied by
tho families ot James McGinley and
Jamas Hanagan were leveled to
tho ground. Mrs. McGinley and
her baby wcro crushed to death, as
also was John McGinley. Mary, tho
yonnger daughter, was fatally injured.
In the ruins of Hanagan's house no
trace of the occupants can be found,
but hopes are entertained that they
may have been absent. Tho Ninth
Begiment is on duty in an
swer to a proclamation i-wued
by the mayor, and the soldiers are as
sisting the police in maintaining or

aid in doing whatever is asked of
them. A careful estimato places the
number of buildings demolished at
nearly 400. The loss will probably
reach nearly, it not quite, S1,000,000.

DcMwraie ili-asurt'.-; !e-oried T.i Isy an
A singular instance of fortitude and
endurance was that exhibited by Her
mann Loebnitz, a worthy German, liv
ing a short distance from this place,
and who recently was the victim of a
peculiar accident, says a Middletown.
Miss., special to the Philadelphia
Times. Some months since Loebnitz
purchased for farming purposes a tract
of land, of which several acres had
never been cleared, and with the
energy and thrift of Ins nation, at
tempted the task of cutting away the
timber aud removing it without aid.
With this intentiouj he had for several
days shouldered his ax, and with a
lunch basket gone to the woods, about
a quarter of a mile from his dwelling.
On the morning of his accident he
commenced his work by cutting down
a largo tree, which in falling was
caught and supported by the branches
of another close by. Loebnitz climbed
this in order to cut away the limbs
which upheld the first, having carried
his ax up with him tied by a cord to
his waist. He succeeded in breaking
away one of tho supporting branches,
and tho tree fell a short distance, but
in its fall hurled tho uuhappy man
downward. His foot being caught,
however, between tho trunk and
limbs of tho two trees, he did not
reach tho earth, but hung suspended,
head downward, in the tiir.
Ho remained thus for some time,
crying for help and endeavoring to
free himself, but the pain of lm
crushed foot, imprisoned as he was,
and the discomfort of his position
growing insupportable, and despairing
of any help arriving, he grew desper
ate, aud, succeeding in swinging him
self upright for a few minutes, with
desperation seized his ax and with a
stroke or two cut his foot off just
above the ankle. Then began a pain
ful descent under what were perhaps
tho most remarkablo circumstances
under which such a thing was ever ac
complished. When down he reached his hat, aud,
filling it with earth, moss and leaves,
bound it to tho bleeding stump, then
crawled home, slowly and painfully
dragging his leg after him- It was
not until ho was within a few rods of
his home that ho was perceived by
his wife and children, who then as
sisted him to tho house. lie was
placed in bed and Dr. Bcnshaw of this
place sent for, who tied up the severed
arteries, and who says that Loebnit's
powers of endurance were beyond
anything in his experience, for, in
spite of his dreadful sufferings, the
man remained quite sensible and calm
through it all, thongh the mere shock
of such a thing was enough to kill

Special by The Usited Press.
Sax Jose, Cal., Aug. 20. The Dem
ocratic stale convention re-assembled
at 10:15 this morning. The commit
tees on credentials, organization, order
of business, and platform and resolu
tions, presented their reports. The
temporary organization was made per
manent. It was recommended by the
adoption of a resolution favoring the
election of United States senators di
rect by a vote of the people. Stephen
M. White, ot Los Angeles, mado the
follownig speech: "I am hero to-day
to sacrifice my strongest aspirations
upon the altar of democracy. I have
been charged with being a traitor to
the party, but sooner than do auy thing
to call this undeserved charge upon
me, I stand aside. I did ask that
yon endorso a Democrat; not myself,
but a Democrat best qualified for tho
office. I will never throw my
self against the interests of
my party " or my friends,
and I will not put myself in such a
position as to cost the Democracy a
single effort. But do not think that I
will not be in this campaign from the
beginning to the end, nor that any
thing that mav be said takes me from
mv aspirations of seeking to be elected
to the TJ. S. Senate." As White took
his seat cheer after cheer went up and
the entire convention rose, aud swing
ing hats and canes in the air, cheered
him more. Chairman Beel B. Terry
then read the platform. The doctrines
of tho national platform of 188S at St.
Louis are reaffirmed. Tho Bepublican
majority in tho House of Beprescnta
tives is denounced and condemned for
the passage of the Lodge election bill.
"A depleted treasury, the imposition
of unequal and oppressive taxes, the
effort to enact coercive legislation, the
arbitrary disregard by the Speaker
of the House of Bepresentatives
of all parliamentary rules, the neg
lect of the present administration in
any manner to modify an admittedly
onerous tariff," says tho platform, is
suggestive of more emphatic words,
than that the reins of tho government
should bo placed in safer hands. The
McKinley bill is denounced, congress
is urged to enact a law perpetually
excluding all Chinese from tho
United States, free coinage of silver,
enactment of stringent laws against
trusts, adoption of an amendment to
tho constitution providing for the
election of United States senators by
a direct vote of the people, also the
superintendent of state printing. We
call the attention of the platform to
the continuous hypocrisy of late in
the Bepublican state convention, in
attempting to place upon the slender
Democratic majority in tho legis
lature the entire responsibility of
the appropriations made during the
last session. In every instance the
appropriations so made were approved
by a Bepublican executive,
whose administration his party's
convention had not manliness to
endorse nor courage to condemn.
Tho Democrat nominees to the legis
lature are pledged to secure the en
actment of a law embodying the
Australian ballot system. The party
is pledged to the advancement
of the educational interests of the
state, and the furnishing of text books
by the state, free of cost, to the pupils
of the the public schools, is favored.
California Democratic representatives
at Washington are pledged to secure
liberal appropriations for the improve
ment of the Sacramento and San
Joaquin rivers and their tributaries.
Tho doctrine, that the waters of the
state aro for the people of the state, to
be used for irrigation, mining and
manufacturing and other useful pur
poses, and that they should never be
subject to private ownership or mono
poly, was re-aflirmed. The liberal
support of citizen soldiers,
the eight honr law and tho
fostering of the wino growing
industry of this state are favored.
The administration of the affairs of
the state prison uuder the Bepublican
management is condemned as extrava

Democratic party is declared as unal

for their object a division of the

Tlie Body of a Suicide Found After
Jr. II. TA.YT.OH SHOOTS JIIJTSJjnF.
Yesterday afternoon while coming
over the hill, Joseph Hughes was hor
rified to find in the bushes on the
sonth side of the cemetery, the body
of a man whose face was black and
covered with maggots eating the flesh.
The coroner's office was notified,
a wagon sent out with a coffin, and
the body was brought in.
An investigation of the pockefs
brought out a letter and a receipted
bill iu the name of H. H. Taylor, a
silver watch and gold chain, pipe,
knife, and a purse containing $63 in
coin. In the right hand was a Smith
&Wes3on revolver, caliber 33, fonr
chambers oE which were loaded and
one contained an empty cartridge
Near the left eye was a hole
where tho bullet had evidently been
fired by tho unfortunate man, pro
ducing instant death.
Tho letter was dated at Clifton, Ore
gon, May 28, 1890, and written on a
printed letter head of the Franco
American Patent Can Opening Co.,
by James O. Spencer, secretary and
treasurer, and reads as follews:
"Yours of the 27th inst just at
hand, and I herewith enclose check
for two hundred dollars as requested.
Am sorry to hear you are having such
a serious lime, but hope to hear yon
are on the improve."
The receipted bill was dated
August 19, 1890, and was for 17
weeks board at St. Marv's hospital,'
from April 22 to August 19, 18J0, at,
SIO per week, SliO. It was learned
that Taylor paid up to that date,
thongh he left there last Friday noon,
and has not since been seen.
Dr. Ftdton stated that Taylor had.
been troubled with dyspepsia and it is
very likely that ho followed the ex
ample of many others who had this
terrible disease and finding it incurable
have committed suicide rather than
live in misery.
Coroner Surprenant will arrive this
morning from Portland and an inquest
and autopsy will be held, but the re
sult will doubtless be in accordance
with the above facts.
