Some of Mrs. Schmidt's friends were deter

DEATH IN STORM'S PATH
FIFE PERSONS PERISH.
Much Damage Done at Winona,
Mu*. t and Adjacent Region.
Memphis, Nov. IS.— Telegraphic and telephonio
communications received to-day from points in
Mississippi. Arkansas and Tennessee, for a dis
tance of sev< tal hundred miles, report that
territory to have suffered lnst night and early
to-day from a destructive rain and wind storm.
Only meagre details are as yet obtainable,
but five lives are known to be lost and great
damage to have been done to property and crops.
Railroad traffic from Memphis is demoralized
by numerous washouts, and many trains have
From the reports so far received the greatest
damage occurred in the central and delta re
gions of Mississippi.
At Winona, Miss., the Roman CSfhollc, the
Christian and the Negro Methodist churches and
the Efcsty brickyard were demolished and many
other buildings were unroofed and damaged.
Ainonj; the largest buildings damaged at that
place are the postoffice, the Opera House, the oil
mill, the cotton compress, the warehouse of the
Jackson Mercantile Company and the house of
E. J. Bunkston. Besides these, twenty-fivo
smaller buildings were partly damaged.
Telegraphic communication is prostrated.
Of those buildings not destroyed, the Com
press was probably the most severely damaged.
The roof of this building was torn off by the
wind, which at times reached almost the velocity
of a tornado, falling on the home of E. J. I>unk
ston, 250 yards away. The windstorm was pre
ceded and followed by heavy rains, causing seri
ous washouts along the route of the Illinois Cen
tral Railroad and damaging crops.
At Mathison. Miss., serious damage is re
ported to have occurred. A woman was killed by
a falling building there.
At T.imla a falling tree striking a small frame
building caused it to be set afire, burning a
woman and a child to death.
At Xoncomah Creek, a few miles from
Memphis, a railroad trestle fell under the weight
of a switch engine, the engine plunging Into the
bwollen stream, carrying with It the engineer,
C. V. Peterson, and the fireman, A. R. Ritchie,
who were drow mil.
West Point, Columbus and Mahin. Miss., are
reported to have suffered serious damage, but as
these points are cut off from communication it
is Impossible to verify the report.
Wolf River, a small stream In the vicinity of
Rossville, Term., is out of its banks, the water
flooding the surrounding territory for many
miles. The entire town of Rossville is Inun
dated, the water in the public square reached a
depth of four feet, and great damage has been
done to property at that place and eastward.
A railroad employe arrived here this afternoon
on a handcar from Rossville reports the people
of that place almost in a state of panic, the flood
being the worst in the town's history. Quanti
ties of loose cotton have been washed away, as
well as many small buildings and livestock
drowned. For eight miles, between this place
and Moscow, T»;nn., the water is from one to six
feet deep on the tracks of the Southern Railway.
To-night th« I ,mi]«vUlr> A- Xashvllle Railroad
annulled all night trains from Memphis because
of the weakness of the bridges across Wolf
River. The Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis
Railroad expects to have their track in shape to

all trains are detoured by way of the 'Frisco
and Mobile & Ohio routes. On these roads,

President Roosevelt reached Pier 11 at 8:30
c/clock. There was an enthusiastic gathering
of at least eight hundred persons, principally
men employed on the canal at Cristobal and
other points along the line. The President as
cended the bandstand and made a 30-minute
speech. In giving his impressions of the work
on the canal he said he was pleased with what
already had been done, and paid his respects to
those who had adversely criticised the work.
"How about Poultney Bigolow?" came from
among the auditors.
With much deliberation the President re
marked that In every large work there was al
ways some one to find something that was not
done as it should have been; but the employes
should on no account pay attention to such crit
icisms, as the critics would sink out of sight.
while the work the men were doing and had
done would remain long after all criticism had
been forgotten. He said, also, that he was so
impressed with the magnitude of this work that
he would like to see one <>f his sons engaged
therein. He congratulated all the heads of de
partments upon the work being done, and with
especial warmth he congratulated Captain
George R. Shanton on his success in maintaining'
order In the canal zone and in perfecting tho
Bplendid police force under his control. He said
he would like to remain longer on the isthmus.

his work in the United States.

PEAKY SUFFERED MUCH.
Met Terrible Weather After Leaving
[By Tflfpraph to The Tribune. ]
Ottawa, Ont , Nov. 18.— Further details of
the Peary Arctic exploration reached Sydney.
N. S.. late last night, and were telegraphed here
to-night. The steamer Virginian Lake, which
met the Roosevelt at Battle Harbor, supplying
her with coal and provisions, nas just reached
Sydney. The Roosevelt is badly damaged, and
as her sailing power is useless and two of her
propeller blades gone, 6he can only steam four
knots an hour, so it will probably take her a
week to get from Chateau Bay to Sydney. Ail
the crew are well, except Larke, the engineer.
Peary and others of the first party starting
out made a "dash" early in February, but en
countered terrible weather and a temperature
70 degrees below zero and lost a sled of pro
visions. In time their supplies ran out and
they had repeatedly to kill their Esquimau dogs
and eat them. After being in a storm that
lasted six days they killed a hundred musk oxen
end some deer, which gave them provisions for
a time. Aftt*r beins out 117 days they got back
to the Roosevelt, having suffered terribly. The
vessel started home on July 4. She met terrible
storms, lasting sixty-Are days. The topmast was
destroyed, the sails rendered useless, two blades
of the propeller broken and the rudder disabled
repeatedly. A jury rudder was rigged, but only
after great risks. Blubber oil was used in an at
tempt to ease the force of the seas, but it did not
have any great effect. Running short of coal,
the crew cut up the vessel stanchions and burned
every loose wooden article on the decks.
Finally they reached Chateau Bay and Bat
tle Harbor, almost exhausted, and a consider
able time after their meals had been cut down
to two a day.
The- Roosevelt will repair at Sydney and then
proceed to New York, Commander Peary, his
wife. Dr. Wolfe, the historian with the party,
and others going there by train. On the ves
sel are more than three hundred skins of musk
oxen and deer and a number of Esquimau dogs
that the explorer brought home.

BOMB IN ST. PETER'S.
CROWD IN PANIC AT MASS.
Third Recent Outrage in Italy —
J».>.ne. Nov. 18.— A bomb was exploded In St.
Veer's to-day. The edifice was crowded and in
describable confusion followed, though there
were no fatalities. As soon as the echoes of
the explosion had ceased a canon sought by re
assuring words to quiet the people, but in vain.
They fled in all directions. A number of women
fainted, women and children screamed, and men
tried to protect their families In the crush. The
church is so large, however, that there was amplo
room for the crowd to scatter, and no one was
Injured. No trace of the perpetrator of tha
deed has been found.
Since Saint Anacletus. who was ordained by
St. Peter himself, erected an oratory in 90 A, Dw
on the site of the present edifice, no such occur
rence is noted in the annals of the church.
LARGE CROWD IN THE CHURCH.
To-day was the anniversary of the dedication
of the church, and It was beautifully decorated
for the occasion. Holy relics were exposed, andl
a large number attended the service. Cardinal
Rampolla, formerly Papal Secretary of State,
was among those present. He took part in. thai
service in the choir chapel.
The last mass had Just been finished when
the explosion occurred, and only one canon,
who had not finished, remained at the a'Jtar oC
St. Petronilla. This altar Is at the end of tha
right aisle, and it was near here that the bomb>
had been placed. As the canon turned to bless
the communicants there was a tremendous roar,
which echoed through the arches of the im
mense dome like a thunderclap. Dense smoka
spread throughout this part of tha church, anti
a strong odor of gunpowder filled the air.
Confusion and panic at once seized' the people.
The canon at the akar shouted out: "Do not bo
afraid! It Is nothing— the noonday- gun: -
His words, however, had little effect. They we*»
refuted by the smoke and the pungent smell of
powder, and the people continued their headlong
flight. Chairs were overthrown, making the*
