be united in marriage to Mrs. Holt, a

Th Pan-Electric Invoatlaratloss.
Washington, April 15. The exami
nation of Benthuysen was continned
before the Telephone Investigating
Mr. Ranney questioned the witness
as to the withdrawal of his applica
tion, and he said the object of his
visit to the Attorney-General was
simply for the purpose of asking him
to act npon the recommendation of
some District Attorney that suit be
brought without referring it to the In
terior Department. Mr. Brieraon had
made the request, but the Attorney
General hadjrefusod to bare anything
to do with it. Witness denied that
anybody uttered Pan-Electric to the
t Attorney-General on the occasion of
that visit. Witness had often ex
pressed wonder at the very positive
mistake made by M r. Garland when
he stated in his letter that he had
been approached by somebody con
nected with the Pan-Electric, if obody
connected with the Pan-Electric
except Mr. Young accompanied him
(witness) to the Department of Justice,
and not a word had been said about
The committee at this point had a
long discussion over the New Orleans
record, during the course of which the
witness suddenly interjected the re
mark that as a representative of the
New Orleans committee, he should say
that it was none of the committee's
"It is astonishing how he can hear
sometimes " sarcastically said Mr.
Hanbaek, referring-to the deafness of
the witness. "He has the most accom
modating Bet of ears I ever saw."
Tbe Harrow Cstlneee Bill.
Washington, April 15. The House
Committee on Foreign Affairs to-day
considered the' Morrow Chinese bill
and the Chinese indemnity resolu
tion, and although no final action was
reached thore was a free expression of
individual sentiment upon those sub
jects. The period fixed for the re
striction of Chinese in the Morrow
bill was regarded as too long by a
number of the members of the com
mittee, and there was a decided op
position developed to that section of
the bill forbidding the return of Chi
nese to this country after a two years'
It was held that this section is in
conflict with treaty stipulations, as it
would apply to Chinese who were in
this country before the consideration
of the bill. It is probable that the
measure will be amended in these re
spects. The indemnity resolution in
its present shape was regarded as ob
jectionable as establishing a danger
ous precedent, and there is some dis
position to make a cash payment to
China, under the guise of returning
an excess of the indemnity paid by
China to the United States, a result
of the outbreak of 1857. The Cali
fornia delegation urged the committee
to immediate action, and it is prob
able that at the next meeting both
measures will be agreed upon.
Tbe Electoral Coaal Bill.
Washington, April 15. The report
of the Committee on the Electoral
Count, opoa the Hoar bill, was pre
sented to the House to-day. The com
mittee has made several important
amendments to the bill, which are ex
plained in the report. In that part of
section 4 which prohibits the rejection
of ny State fom which butone return
has been received, "except by the af
firmative vote of ..both houses," the
committee has struck ont the excep
tion. The majority of the committee
was of opinion that where there was
but a single return from a State, that
the two hous 8 should not have the
power to reject the vote of the State.
A material amendment has been made
in the latter part of the same section ,
relating to two sets of returns from
one State, so as to provide that those
votes only shall be counted which are
by electors whose apiwintment shall
have been duly certified under the
seal of the State and the executive
thereof, in accordance with the laws
of the State, unless the two bouses,
acting separately, shall concurrently
decide such votes not to be the lawful
votes of the legally appointed electors
of such State Th committee was of
the opinion that whenther was more
than one return from a State and but
tingle State government, the vote of
the State law fully certified by the ex
ecutive and to be cast by the lawfully
appointed electors should be counted,
unless both houses concur in rejecting
the vote. ShooM this amendment be
adopted by the House, and the bill
passed, the mode of counting the
electoral vote may be thus briefly
stated : In those States where a tri
bunal has been established for the de
termination of contests and concern
ing the appointment of electors there
in, and such tribunal has decided
what elector, were duly ap
pointed, the determination of the
Mate tribunal shall be conclusive.
Where there is but one return from
the State, the vote so returned shall
be counted ; but in case there should
arise a question as to which of two or
more of such State authorities de
termine what electors have been ap
pointed in the legal tribunal of
such State, the votes of the
electors, of such State shall
be counted, whose title as electors,
the two housea acting on separately
shall concurrently decid is supported
by the decision of such State tribunal
as was organised by law. Under the
amendment already referred to, where
there is but one State government and
two sets of returns purporting to be
the vote of the State, thai return shall
be counted which is supported by the
executive's certificates, unless both
houses acting separately shall decide
that the vote is not the lawful vote of
the State. . -

Committee on the Judiciary to-day in
structed Representative Bennett to re-
Eort favorably a bill to ameliorate tbe
arshness of the internal revenue
laws. The b 11 abolishes minimum

Washington, Atril 15. The acting
Secretary of the Treasury has author
ized the Surveyor of Customs at Lou
isville to adopt, in regard to the stor
age, exhibition and sale of foreign
articles at the Southern Exposition, to
be held in that city, the course pur
sued at the Exposition of 1885.
Aa Interesting- Claim.
A peculiar and interesting claim has
just been passed upon by the First
Auditor of the Treasury. In 1780
many of the officers of tbe Continental
Army, having become discouraged
over their failure to get pay and cloth
ing, were threatening to res gn. In
that year Congress passed a law grant
ing to all officers who served on to the
close of the war half pay for life.
Three years later the officers were per
mitted bv Congress to vote whether
they would take full pay for five years
or half pay for life. Gen. Washington
reported tne result of the vote to Con
gress; this vote was in favor of the
five years' full pay. John Baptiste
Ashe was a lieutenant colonel of a
North Carolina regiment ; he never
claimed his five years, but in 1838 his
descendants put in their claim, and
by special act of Congress thev were
granted 13600, the full pay for five
years ; this they accepted as settle
ment. Now comes Mr. M. A. Collins
of Memphis, the lineal descendant of
Col. Ashe, and, quoting the law grant
ing the half pay for life, sets up that
Col. Ashe lived nineteen years, and
his descendants have only received
nay for five years. He therefore prays
tor pay for the other fourteen years.
He is cited the facts in the case, and
his claim is disallowed.
THE RIVE 11 AT HELENA.
Planter on tbe Hlaalaalppl Bide
Strengthening tbe Leveee.
ISPICIAL TO TBI AFPClL.t
Helena, Abk., April 15.- The river
here is now forty-thr e fet three
inches above low-water mark, and
three feet eleven inches below high
water, and has risen three inches in
the last twenty-four hours. A large
force of men are at work strengthen
ing the levees on the Mis-issippi s do
of the river, (ommercing at a point
just a short distmce above Austin and
extending down. The planters of
Mississippi fear tbe levees near Austin
more than any other place, from the
fact that the St. Francis empties into
the Mississippi near that po nt and
the immense volume of water coming
out of the sunk lands is carried
against them with so much violence
th t it id feared they cannot stand it
alter the water gets to its highest. It
will be fully ten days before the water
quits rising at this point.

FIRST REPORTS OF THE DISKS
TER NOT EXAGGERATED.
Probably 100 LI res Lout at St, Cloud
and Sauk Ranitls Toraadoes la
Iowa and Xissonri.
Sr. Paul, Minn., April 15. There
ports of the eye one at St Cloud,
fr'auk Rapids, Rice station and other
points in the vicinity la-t night and
early this morning were not exagger
a ed. At 3 o'clock this morning in the
S laces named there were forty-nine
ead and nearly 200 injured, with
many still missing, whose bodies will
probably be recovered to day. Just
enough houses are left in Sauk Rapids
to form a fringe around the city lim
its. The debris is not piled in heaps,
but (tea tared far and wide. The sign
"Sauk Rapids" in the Manitoba depot
and a basketful of books were found
in Rice's Station, fifteen miles away
This shows the terrible power of the
storm. No reports have yet been re
ceived from outlying districts where it
is believed great dent' notion of prop
erty and loss rf life has been wrought.
The storm extended from Jamestown,
Dak., through Minnesota and Wis
consin, though its most disastrous ef
fects are to be found in the three
places first named.
AID FOR CYCLONE KDFPBRIK.
The City Council this morning voted
f "000 in cash to aid the cyclone suffer
ers, and Gov. Hubbard dispatched a
car-load of provisions to Sauk Rapids.
The car was accompanied bv a com
mittee of the Jobbers' Union, who
will offer all assistance in their power.
who, with others, went lust evening
by special train to St. Cloud, returned
this morning. Ujwu reaching St.
Cloud, he said, the physicians from
St. Paul and Minneapolis divided, part
going to Sauk Rapids. : Dr. Denslow
was on the force sent to the St. Bene
dictine Sisters' Hospital, and they
were kept busy until 3 o'clock this
morning. Fully twentv-five injured
were taken to the hospital alone, and
he does not know how many more
were cared for in private housed. Two
of those taken to the hoiiital will
very probably die. One is a woman
who has a croken collar bone, both
bones of the left forearm and both
bon-s of the left leg frcctured, all
comminuted, and the pe'vis broken,
an accident seldom chronicled in sur
gery. Her head and face are braised
beyond recognition, yet, Strang; to
say, the woman is conscious, and
talked freely, saying her hip hurt
some, but otherwise she felt no pain.
The other probably fatal case is that
of a young lady twenty years old,
both legs being so badly crushed
that they had to be amputated mid
way between the kn-e and the thigh.
One man, lying in the hospital badly
injured, said three of his children
were dead. Another man in the next
cot to him responded, saying his wife
and three children were killed by the
storm. Three little boys about six
years old were brought in at midnight
wounded cruelly. A woman was found
with a piece of the scalp large as a
man's hand torn from her head and
hanging by shreds. Drs. Denslow and
Ritchie shortly after midnight went
across to Sauk Rapids to render what
assistance they could there. Twenty
three dead bodies had been found,
and doctors from Minneapolis were
busy caring for the injured.
Tne following is a revised list of the
killed at Sauk Rapids: John Re nurd,
County Auditor; Gregg Lindley, Reg

THE CYCLONE DEATH LIST.
A St. Cloud special to the Pioneer'
Pretusavs: The cyclone death list in
cludes Abner St. Cyr, who had a large
sliver driven through his head, but
lingered in great agony until to-night,
when he died He was commander of
the Grand Army post and a promi
nent Mason. He was an old Missis
sippi pilot. There are to-night twelve
coffined bodies at Rice's Station and
fifteen maimed, a number of whom
cannot recover. A child's bloody
dress was found this afternoon in
Buckman township, twenty-two
miles northwest of Sauk Rapids. Mrs.
Maggio Dier died at the hospital this
afternoon, and Senator Buckman has
just learned that his farm buildings
were wrecked and his foreman killed.
Mrs. Shea was sick in the house but
escaped injury, although the roof and
upper story were swept away.
Tbe Work of tlevaatailoa at Nt.
St. Cloud, Minn., Atril 15. The
work of devastation in the district
visited by the cyclone is complete, as
the littered and shivered remains of
what were frame buildings will tes
tify. The scene to-day was one to
appall strong heart. For a width of
about GC0 feet, running from south
west to northeast, the tornado had
leveled almost everything before it.
An occasional building, partially
wrecked, was left to tell the tale of
destruction, as if by contrast with the
ruin to be seen on every s de. Scarce
ly a vestige of any structure remained
so as to oe recognized, the ground
being literally covered with all k nds
of timber promiscuously tangled to
ge her. It is estimated that 400
structures were blown down, all of
frame and not costly. The Manitoba
depot was unroofed and wrecked
thus almost entirely cutting off all
telegraphic communication. The
only bu ldiiig of any consequence,
aside from the depot, injured was
the brew ry, and this was badly
warped and twisted. The Binall resi
dences were mostl y occupied by for-
eigners, whose nami it ha been ini
potwihle to secure with any degree of
ccuraev. The Catholic rosiiitul is
tilled with the wounded, but only five
or six of them are considered to be in
a dangerous condition. The others
are slightly hurt. There were fifty
four wounded in the hospital last
night, besides a number that were
akn to rrivate residences. To-dav
there are about fortv in the hospital,
two having died and the others being
removed. Tbe dead hodies at the
engine-house have been neatly dressed
and coffined. The funeral will proba
bly occur to-morrow. It is iniposs ble
to my anything definite about the re
building, but it is not believed that
there will bs much delay in repairing
the structures, as tenant bonnes for
laboring people are tn demand. The
pecuniary loss will hardlv go shove
ltiO.000. 'The fo ce ol the 'storm was
such as to wrench ofl the door of the
safe in the postottioo and carrv it
some distance from the building.
The church bell, weighing 1SIK)
pound, was found among the debris,
400 feet away from anv building. 1 lie
remains of the dead are almost nn
recognizable, being terribly crushed
and blackened. There are a remark
able number of persons injured about
the hips and spine Many of the sur
vivors will be disabled for life. The
delegation of doctors fr -nt Hi Paul
and Minneapolis worked all night un
der the disadvantage of having no
splints or drugs, as the drug stores
we e demolished. Splin's were made
from shingles, with which the ground
was strewn in the trac k ol the storm
for miles, due fortunate thing was
the fact that school had In-en dismissed
on Friday, or the fatalities among the
children would have been appalling,
the school house having been razed to
the foundation. Following are addi
tional names of killed in St. Cloud:
C. F. Andrews, thirty years; Miss
Hlreitz.twenty years; an 'unknown man,'
thirty years; Ed Meehan, twenty-live
years; Mrs. Seiunitz and two children ;
Anna Seihold, four years; Jacob Short
ridge; Jennie Junglen, sixteen years;
August Junglen, nine years; Mary
Junglen, fourteen years.

Press reporter that flew bodies were

Twelve iniu-ed people were brought
in, several of whom will die. Drug-
?;ist Seuabert's remains had just been

two weeks Four have died of wounds
since morning. At a church east of
Rice's Station thirteen instead of ten
of a wedding party wire killed, includ
ing tlie officiating minister. At Sauk
Rapids thirty-one are already dead.
The list will be swelled to forty. Dr.
Dr. Ames of Minneapolis, who is on
duty at St. Cloud, told Dr. Dallister
that at least tbir y deaths can but re

Searching for tbe Head at hank
Sauk Rapids, Minn., April 15. The
dismal work of searching (or the dead
among the dobris of the storm-swept
section still continues, while the re
covered remains, blackened and
mangled, are beng shrouded
for the grave, and the wounded ae
receiving every possible attention.
Physicians from neighboring cities are
till on duty, tireless in their efforts
As the returnB come in from the
country in the track of the tornado,
new fatalities are discovered, and of
the maimed that are be ng brought in
for treatment no pen can depict the
horrors of the scene. The final
muster of casualties will surely swell
the total of fatalities to 100.
Tbe Tornado In Weatera Iowa.
Dks Moines, Ia., April 15. Reports
from yesterday's tornado in Western
Iowa show that the storm ranged
from Taylor county north to I'oca
hontas county. Four persons are re
ported killed, and about twenty-five
seriously injured. From fifty to
seventy-five dwellings are demolished
and large damage was done to bams,
stock and trees.
The Cyclone at t'oon Kaplris, In.
Chicago, III., April 15. Special dis
patches from Panama, la., say that
the cyclone which struck Coon Kapids
yesterday was more serious in its
effects than t first supposed. One
boy was killed and numerous persons
were injured. Twenty-five nouses,
tw i churches, one school house anil
Bcveral business houses were de
stroyed. A freight train, except tho
locomotive, was blown from the track
and demolished and the contents
ruined. The cyclone swept over
Western Iowa, doing considerable
damage. It is supposed to have start
ed about three miles east of Griswold,
then passed north and slightly cast,
then going about nine miles northeast
of Atlantic, and passed two and a half
miles east of Brayton. The cyclone
had the appearance of a funnel-shaped
clout. Southeast of Atlantic, about
four miles, Henry Roger's house was
blown away, and his hired man was
badly injured. John Kirk's big stable,
300 feet long, was destroyed, together
with his house. In Benton township
ten houses were totally destroyed and
one woman fatally injured. Near
Brayton tlie dwellings ot James Key
nolds, William Burtner and Donald
Burtner were destroyed, and also the
Burtner school-house. The pupils
escaped, however, by running with
tho family into Burtner's cave, or
cyclone cellar, they having seen tho
cyclone coming. Mr. Northgraves, in
that vijinity, was dangerously hurt.
Much stock lias been killed. Reports
from the cyclone are very meager so
far, but it is feared that great damage
lias been done and many lives lost.

correspondent that Gen. W. C Whit

HiKinseioa nquiry from the Aiteal's

presence of several gentlemen, aid:
"1 have no hesitancy In saying that I

when considered in the light of other
circumstances. In the fiixt place the
Governor has decided, as the Appeal
pred'eted two days ago, that the ap
pointment will be made from Middle'
Teiincs.ec Virtually there have U')t
for two days lieen but th ee men from
this section who were strong in con
nection with the successorship. Gen.
Dvbrell caused bis name to lie with
d awn from the consideration of the
Governor us soon as he learned of its
presentation by his friends. He is a
candidate for Governor, and did not
desire to risk his Gubernatorial
chances fora temporary honor, though
somewhat higher. Speaker Berry
tins never been seriously consid
ered. Col. Cole has never been any
thing more than a possibility. Wil
son, Whit'.borne and House have
been the favorites from the start. It
is believed that had Wilson wanted
the apH)intiucnt he could have got
it, but since last night it has been do
ciled that he would certainly not ac
cept the honor if tendered, and tho
Governor ceased to consider him.
The Governor was left to choose be
tween WHITTHOIINE AND IIOI SE.
While the Governor has not com
mitted himself, it may bo stated with
almost absolute certainty that he has
decided to appoint Gen. Whitthorne.
The odds a e UK) to I that he will bo
appointed within an hour after Jack
sou's resignation is received, and thut
is expected to-night.
