Great Desolation and Death,
Dead, Dying and Homeless Ming
ling in the Debris.
GuTimiE, O. T , April 1. The latest
reports from Chandler say that the cy
clone, which almost swept the town
off the face of the earth, twenty peo
ple were killed outright or burned to
death, and fully 150 injured. Of these
latter it is thought fourteen will die
and twenty-four others are in a danger
ous condition. The remainder of
the population is homeless. The
Presbyteriin church, Mitchell's ho
tel ond two other buildings are all
that remain standing. These have
been turned into hospitals. The
property loss will aggregate $500,000.
There arc not half enough coffins
here to bury the dead.
Thejpeopie were slow to recover from
the shock of the calamity, and not
until day did anything like system
prevail in the work of relief. Save
one slow working telephone wire out
of Chandler, and but one telegraph
wire from Guthrie, the town is ltill
pracrically cut off from the outRldc
The storm broke upon the city
suddenly. The sky was clear an hour
before. Shortly before six o'clock a
mass of dark clouds gathered In the
southeast and then whirled north.
They soon developed into a funnel
shaped monster and drew down upon
the outskirts of the town. The mas
touched the ground and the roar' was
deafening. The funnel split as it
struck the southwest border of Chand
ler, which is situated on a hill over
looking Cow Creek valley, and one
half went torough the town and the
other turned north. Before escape
was possible the cyclone had passed
through the town.
Tearing through the business dis
trict, stores were hurled right and left,
or lifted high Into the air and tossed
in every direction. One of the occu
pants was killed outright, and a dozen
others injured. Further down Main
street the Lincoln county'bank build-,
lng was toppled over and was soon en
veloped in flames. Here before aid
could reach them, live unfortunates
were burned to death, pinned down
by heavy timbers. Still further down
the street three children suffered a
like fate. A two-days-old babe was
carried four blocks and ndt injured,
while the mother was crushed in her
bed. The trail the storm left was one
of wreck and ruin most complete.
But one of Chandler's physicians es
caped iujury, ond even when aid from
Guthrie arrived there was a scarcity
of surgeons. Only two of these were
able to do anything last night, and
one of these, Dr. Walcott, with blood
streaming from a sightless eye,
worked until ho fainted. Daylight
brought hundreds of people from the
surrounding towns, and women and
children assisted in caring for the In
jured. Queer sights greet the eye on all
sides. Ten trees have a house roof on
each; clothing and household goods
are scattered in the streets; dead
horses, cows and other animals are to
be seen everywhere, while a pile of
ruins has a fine piano perched on top
of It. Many of the citizens wander
about the streets dazed at the calam
ity and almost on the verge of insan
ity at the loss of family and homes.
Two or three have gone stark mad.
By nightfall 10,000 people had
flocked into the city. Many came to
render aid, but the majority are there
as morbid slght-scers, Great quanti
ties of clothing, bedding and provis
ions have been sent in and a Guthrie
club has raised $1,500 In. casii to send
tomorrow. The city has put to use
all Its cash, about $700, for immediate
aid. Hundreds of tents have
sent from Fort Remind Guthrie, and
will provide temporary shelter for tho ranice. xr you want to see a cooa com

SALEM, OREGON THUKSDAY. APRIL 1, 1897.
The Terrors Are 'increasing,,
Rain and Wind Add to the River
Memphis, Tenn., Aprll 1. A heavy
rainfall, accompanied, by a strong gale
from the west, Is adding to the terror
of the flood situation. One hundred
and fifteen miles below Memphis, In
the Mississippi delta, there are four
breaks, and each is leltiog in a stream
as large as the Ohio river at Cincin
nati, or tho Hudson at -Albany, and
this tremendous outflow has caused a
la.il of only one-tenth of an inch at
Vlcksburg, immediately below the
last break. The rairi and wind will
cause more breaks. The river is now
like an inland sea, and this afternoon
a telegram from a point below Rose
dale, Miss., announced that the waves
were pounding against the levee and
that at frequent Intervals the water
tore itself loose from the main channel
and dashed over the embankment.
This being true, there will be, in all
probability, miore creyasses befor

On the Arkansas side the levee from
Helena to Arkansas City is as full of
men as tho Inner wall of a beseiged
( There is a break at Westover, -which
ocenrred at an early hour in the
morning. A thousand men were at
work on the levees when the craih
came. For a moment a thin thread
of water began to trickle from the
Inner wall of. the embankment. Ex
perienced levee men saw the danger
and cried -out a worlof jvrirnlng, and
tho laborers rushed back but in five
minutes a gap of 50 feet wide and six
feet deep was torn In the wall of
earth. The break grew until it is now
several handred feet wide. The
crevasse Is 10 miles below Helena, and
tho water rushing through it will de
stroy a dozen splendid plantations
and may back up to Helena.
ThoLacona circle country, a few
miles below Westover. Is under water.
This circle is surrounded by u levee.
The levee In the rear wall went to
pieces at a late hour on Monday, and
the water rushed in and spread Itself
over and across some of the most
fertile land in Arkansas, cut up into
plantations and giving support to no
less than 5000 people.

The Dlngley Bill Has Passed,
By a Vote of 205 to 121-21 Not
Washington, April 1. The house
passed tho tariff bill by a vote of 205
to 121, 21 not .voting. Voting on
bill had not begun until 3 o'clock yes
terday at ternoon.but the gallarles were
crowded early to witness tho maneu
vering leading up to the climax of
the ten days' battle.
Dlngley and Bailey, tho opposing
leaders were in their places when
Speaker Reed called tho house to
order at 1 o'clock. Richardson, of
Tennessee, called attention to the fact
that there was manifestly no quorum
present, but declined, on account of
the brief tlmo remaining for the con
sideration of tho bill, to make the
Grosvenor presented the amend
ment, about which there has been so
much discussion during the last ten
days, fixing April 1st as the date on
which the bill shall go Into effect.
The democrats were alert. M. Bailey
immediately gained the point that
the amendment was out of order. It
was abnoxious, ho said, to the oldest
and best rule of law, that no statute
shall be retroactive.
As the hour for voting arrived the
excitement increased. Fifteen min
utes before 3 o'clock McMillin was
recognized for five minutes to close
the debate for his side. Dlngley took
the floor and closed the debate In a
Bailey demanded a special yotc on
the amendment iixing date when the
bill goes into effect as April 1. The
roll call was demanded on the amend
ment, and It was adopted by a vote of
200 to 140. The combined opposition
of tho Democrats, Populists and free
silyerltcs voted against the amend
ment, except Mr. Newland (silver) of
Nevada, who voted for It, and Messrs.
nartman (silver) of Montana, Jones
(fuslonlst) of Washington, Martin
(Populist) of North Carolina and
Stroud (Populist) of North Carolina,
who did not vote. Tho bill was then
ordered read the third time, after
which Dockcry offered the motion for
for the minority to recommit tho bill

Nowlands for it. nartman, of Mon
tana, Jono' of Washington, Martin of
South Carolina, Shuford and Stroud
of North Carolina, who did not vote
on the proceed lng votes, wero recorded
in favor of the motion,
The roll on the passage of tho bill
was then taken and followed with In
terest. Not a break occurred in- tho
Republican ranks. Five Democrats,
Meyer, Brousand and Davey of Louis
iana, and Kleberg and Slaydcn of
Texas voted with the majority.
Howard of Alabama was ttie only
Populist who voted for the bill, but
twenty-one of the Populists, fusion
lsts and sllvcrltes declined to record
themselves either way. Before an
nouncing the result of tho vote the
speaker directed his name to bo called.
"Mr. Reed," shouted the clerk.
"Aye,'' replied tho speaker.

the results "Ayes 205, noes 121, absent
and not voting twenty-one, and 60 the
