Ho has been In Wusco, Oil Hum and Morrow countlca, talking for the white metal, and advocating the elec tion of Qulnn for congressman. Every where ho .poke he was greeted with big meetings, and, amongst the Populists, the feeling he describe. I. very strong In favor of electing a straight-out silver man to congress. General Weaver My.: "The Democratla vote I. vanishing In Eastern Oregon. It Is going to the Pop ulist.. Judge Northup will poll a very large vote east of tha mountains, and 1 am very much surprised to see .0 many leading Republican, active. In support ot the sound-money candidate. I was told by a reliable cltlxcn of I'matilia county that Northup would get 500 votes In the city of l'endleton, which surprises me. In Wasco county, nl.io, Judge Korlhup will get a big vote: In fact, he will do ao all over Kastern Oregon. Turing my lour, 1 heard no tulk of Kills, not even In his own county Mor row. It may be possible that Kills will get less than 1ik majority, but I really think that ho will not even carry his own county.

The wind seemed to take the form of a tornado rather than that of a cyclonu and tho wrecked buildings show none of the twisted Irons and girder, which usually murk the track of a rotary wind storm. The tirst heavy damage was In tho vicinity of Tower Orove and LaFayette Fark. where hundreds or handsome residences were wrecked and many people injured. St Louis, May Si. A river man esti mates that tl.SKi.tiO would not repair and replace the boats alone that figured In yesterday's disastrous storm. The Loul. Lodge broks It. hawser, dur ing the tornado. Four of the crew plung ed overboard and were seen to drown. Others were rescued. The crew and pas senger, of the ferry-boat Christie hud a remarkable experience. When the' storm broke the boat was torn from It. moor ing, at the foot of Spruce street and blown down stream with fearful velocity. The passengers were erased with fear and sixteen two-horse teams stampeded on the lower deck. The water rushed over the boat, filling the hull, but by a miracle It floated and was driven be fore the storm down stream. The river was like sf raging sea, and the crew was unable to launch any of the boats. The passengers crouched In the cabin, expect ing every moment to go down. The boat drifted aa far as Jefferson Barracks, where she sunk In .hallow water. The teams on the lower deck were drowned, but the passenger, were saved. St. Louis, May as. Nothing whatever remains of Broadway from the river to the viaduct and on the east side for a width of probably 600 yards there Is ab solutely no semblance of a house, freight shed or cars left standing. The Big Four, Vundiillu, and L. and N. freight sheils are raxed to the ground, not so much as a stick remaining In un upright position. At the Vandalla depot the loss of life and thu number Injured Is very great. 8t. Louis, May Kl. Business was prac tically at a standstill today. Street cars were running In some directions, but In the vicinity of the wrecked district trol ley, telephone and telegraph wires were badly tangled and practically useless for a great irt of the day. In some streets the telegraph tKiles were all broken on close, to the ground, making passing al most Impossible owing lo tho twisted wires. Through South St. Louis damage was done between Russell avenue on the south, and Choteaut avenue to Tapln street on the north.

ANOTHER CYCLONE. Havoc In the Capital City by a Regular Western Cyclone. Washington. May 2S. For the third time In ten days Washington has expe rienced a cyclone, and for twenty min utes this afternoon wind swept the city and rain beat down with a violence sug gestive of the St. Louis horror. With newspaper stories of yesterday's tornado fresh In their minds, the sudden sweep ot the storm caused much suffering to ner vous folks. The wind came from the southwest at the beginning, about half-past S, and rap Idly Increasing In velocity, swung around to northwest and north, and tore along, sweeping away roofs from a number ot buildings. Including the Lutheran Memo rial church, uprooting scores of trees all over the city and doing other Injury. Much damage waa done to the splendid foliage of the executive mansion grounds and two of the finest of the large old trees were torn up by the roots, making four lost In a week by storms. The wind acted like a genuine western cyclone In the White House grounds, cutting trees and great limbs In a clean but narrow path across the rear lawn. At the capitol the storm caused a tem porary suspension ot business. The tem perature fell thirty-one degrees In fif teen minutes. The force of the wind for the first five minutes averaged sixty miles an hour, gradually Increasing to seventy-one miles for the last five min utes. FIFTY-FIVE WERE KILLED. Victoria. May 28. The work of rescue at the scene of the bridge disaster was completed this afternoon, when the Inst of the bodies was recovered by the div ers. The death roll includes fifty-five names and it Is feared that two or three strangers may yet be missing. Evidence is accumulating showing grave negligence on the part of the city authorities, they having been warned the day before the accident that the bridge would not hold. This afternoon was given up to the funer als of the victims. Twenty burials are arranged for tomorrow. THE STATE GRANGE. McMlnnvllle, Or..
