A Phenomenal Hailstorm at
Huge Chunks of Ice Fall From
Windows Broken and Much Other
Street Car Animals Made Frantic by the
Hail, and Passengers Panic-Stricken
—The Southern Floods.
Associated Press Dispatches. I
Washington, April 27.—The Signal
Office furnishes the following report
from the signal service observer at Bal
timore: The heaviest hailstorm on
record at this station passed over Balti
more from northwest to southeast be
tween 3:45 and 4 p.m. today. Many
thousands of windows in the city were
broken, the damage being confined
mainly to western exposure. Many
runaways are reported. Some horses
and carriages were abandoned in the
streets, their owners leaving them to
seek shelter. It is probable that num
bers of people were injured, as the
stones were very large, some measuring
more than two inches in diameter and
weighing more than four ounces each.
The extent of the damage has not yet
been ascertained, but must be very
great. . A very heavy rain fell with the
hail, eighty-hnndredths of an inch fall
ing between 3:45 and 4 p.m. Many of
the car tracks at the foot of the hills are
covered to a depth of six inches with
soil washed down upon them. The wind
at 3:55 attained a velocity of thirty
miles per hour, rapidly decreasing after
the passage of the storm.
The hail went through thick panes of
glass as though they were tissue paper,
and the amount of the damage will run
up into thousands. Some of the hail
stones were ragged and as sharp on the
edges as a steel blade. Hen's eggs were
nothing to them in si/c ; many of them
were as large as a man's fist. The storm
came from the west and was local in its
character, and swept to the east with a
rattle like heavy musketry, frightening
people out of their wits and hitting those
who were on the streets, giving many of
them hard knocks and driving them
into places of shelter. There was a per
fect Niagara of water, with hailstones—
or rather chunks of ice—weighing some
of them a quarter of a pound. In al
most an instant the streets were
rivers, tlie pavements were Hooded
from two to three inches deep, and the
man who remained in the street was
almost in danger of losing his life.
The hail drove horses wild. Those
that pull street cars became uncon
trollable, and the drivers were com
pelled to let them have their own way.
The people in the cars became panic
stricken, and many of them crouched
trembling on the floor of the cars, pray
ing for rescue from the elements, while
the drivers dodged the aerial missiles as
best they could.
All over the city the damage was
heavy. On Charies street the windows
looked as if they had been on a battle
field. In the annex the rain, wind and
hail did even more severe damage than
in the city. Walls were swept down,
houees unroofed, glass smashed and
other damage done.
THE TEXAS DELUGE.
Greatest Flood Known in the History of
Dallas, Tex., April 27. —The most
destructive flood ever known in the
history of North Texas is now passing
through the Trinity. The great rain
raised every tributary of it far out of its
banks. Yesterday and last night it rose
rapidly, and this morning passed the
highest water mark in fifty years. In
front of this city it is two miles wide,
extending to the foot of Flanders heights
west, and to Oak cliff, south of the city.
On the north all the residences from a
hundred yards beyond Cochran street,
are submerged, some to the second floor,
and others to the attic. No one has
been reported drowned. All night and
all day, today, tbe people have been
moving to the higher ground. The back
water extends far upon the north side
of the city, whilst on the south houses
are submerged as far up as Ward street.
North, south and in front of the city
there is one vast ocean of water about
forty feet deep, and at this hour it is
still rising, and will continue to rise
until at least Tuesday. Trains on all
the railroads are not running west, I
north or south of the city today. Wash
oats are reported all along the lines, but j
the worst are immediately around the
city. Tonight the crest of the waves
lacks six feet of the flooring of the
bridges in the city, but the
Santa Fe and Central below
town are submerged. News from
the surrounding country is bad. Most
of the small bridges have been destroyed
by the deluge. The destruction of crops
will amount to little, for as soon as the
water goes down they will grow again.
Friday's storm extended from Indian
Territory to the Gulf, and from Marshall
to Abilene. There was not a stream that
was not raised high above its high
water mark. At many points there
were hurricanes and one cyclone. Many
houses were blown down." So far, only
one life has been reported lost.
Crevasses on the Lower Mississippi
Widening and Matters Growing Worse.
Bayou Sara, La., April 27. —The
steamer Stella Wild has brought down
a number of refugees from New Texas.
The break at Morganza is widening fast,
and yesterday's storm made matters
worse. The Fanny Rich crevasse con
tinues to widen, as well as those at the
Taylor and Preston places, and it is only
a question of a few days when there will
be an unbroken sheet of water from
these points to far above Raccourci.
McCann's Story Is False.
New York, April 27. —The World prints
a cablegram from Richard Croker, in
which he says McCann's story is false;
that he would not believe him under
oath, and that he is a blackmailer.
LOS ANGELES HERALD.
STUDENTS OF THE OCCULT.
Convention or the. Disciples of Madame
Itlavatsky at Chicago.
Chicago, April 27. —The fourth annual
convention of the American section of
the Theosophical Society was held here
today. Bertram Keiglitly of London,
was present, as the bearer of a message
from Madame Blavatsky, the ruling
spirit of the organization. He read a
lengthy address from the Council of the
British section, and fraternal communi
cations from branches in various Euro
pean countries. Madame Blavatsky's
communication warned members against
the results of the present germinating
of many of the latest physhic
and occult powers into such
forms as Christian science, mind
cure. etc. "Understand atonce for all,"
said she, "that there is nothing spirit
ual or divine in any of
these manifestations. The healer
interferes consciously or unconsciously
with the free mental action of the per
son he treats, and this is blank magic.
The general secretary's report said the
visit to Japan by Olcott, one of the
founders of the organization, has been
of momentous importance to the Bud
dhist church. Tlie repart recommends
the suspension of all forms of initiation.
"The existing ones," the report said,
"while commonly symbolic, merely con
fuse the signs and words by which mem
bership can be approved." The objec
tions were that the society was not a
secret body, but merely an organization
of students and philanthropists. The
present system of grips and passwords
arouses, in many countries, disgust

OUTLINE OF THE WORK TO BE DIS
POSED OF THIS WEEK.
The Senate to Vote on the Land Grant
Forfeiture Bill Today—Silver to Have
Early Consideration in Both Houses.
Washington, April 27. —The Senate to
morrow will resume consideration of the
Land Grant Forfeiture bill, with the ex
pectation of coming to a vote before ad
journment. After that the Customs
Administrative bill will probably fill out
the remainder of the week. There is
considerable opposition on the Demo
cratic side to the measure, and Evarts
has an amendment to propose.
The Silver bill will be taken up this
week, if any time remains. Although
the Republican caucus of the Senate has
not agreed upon the details of a silver
bill, it is believed a measure will be
prepared for the consideration of the

The failure of the House to pass the
Legislative Appropriation bill Saturday,
leaves it to come up tomorrow as unfin
ished business. The previous question
has been ordered.
The present intention is to pass the
Silver bill, and it will probably be called
up on a resolution to be reported by the
committee on rules, allowing two days
for its discussion.
The pension committee is to be given
a day, and the committee on public
buildings is to have the same privilege
in order to dispose of bills reported. The
Diplomatic Appropriation bill will prob
ably be passed without discussion.
No time has yet been allotted the
River and Harbor bill, but as a large
number of the members desire tbe
measure passed before the Tariff bill
comes up, they may be able to have it
considered during the week.
VOTED TO STRIKE.
One Thousand Packing House Employees
Threaten to Go Out May Ist.
Chicago, April 27. —Fully one thou
sand packing house men by unanimous
vote decided this afternoon to go out on
a strike Thursday, unless their request
for eight hours a day was complied with.
President O'Neill, of the Packing Labor
ers' Union, presided at the meeting.
One of the speakers, John McCullough,
said the packers owned the laborers
body and soul since the last strike, and
now when an effort was being made to
shake off the coils that bound them,
they should take advantage of the oppor
tunity. This time there would be no
Pinkertons to intimidate or murder.
Lawyer Richman assured the men from
whom money forfeits against a strike
had been enacted by different establish
ments, that they would not lose one
cent of the forfeits by a strike.
President O'Neill in an interview
tonight said the men had an organiza
tion of four thousand members, and
were being backed by the Chicago Per
sonal Rights League, and the Federation
MISSING LEG FOUND.
Police Still Looking for Mrs. Mlttman's
Leavenworth, Kas., April 27. —The
missing leg of the mutilated body of
Mrs. Mittman, who was murdered a
month ago,was found in the river today.
The police are still hunting for Charles
A. Benson, the supposed murderer. An
investigation of his career shows that he
is an exile from Germany, whence he
escaped to America several years ago.
He was charged with blowing up his
sister's house and killing two of her chil

was much surprised to learn of the
alarming reports of her condition current

she has almost entirely recovered.

The McKinley Bill Will Be
Tlie Congressional Pulse on the
Members Interviewed as to How
They Will Vote.
The Republicans Will Stand by It Almost
to a Man—The Democrats Helpless
in the Premises.
Associated Press Dispatches. I
Philadelphia, April 27. —The Press
tomorrow publishes the most complete
and careful poll of the majority in Con
gress ever made by a newspaper. The
purpose was to ascertain tbe views of the
individual members as to the necessity
of passing a tariff revision and reduc
tion bill as speedily as possible. Inter
views were had with 209 Senators and
The Press interviewers found what op
position exists to McKinley's bill on the
Republican side of the House, and, by
extending the interviews to the Demo
crats, found the particular line of
attack upon the bill likely to
be adopted by the opposition.
The fact of supreme importance is that
a bill revising the tariff and reducing
the revenue will be enacted before Con
gress adjourns for tho summer.
The Press interviewed 159 Republi
cans, and with two exceptions they all
agree that the Republican tariff bill
will be passed, and while differences
exist as to many of the schedules, the
entire party is in accord on the general
principle and purpose of the McKinley
The interviews show a strong senti
ment on the part of the Republicans in
favor of the bill, even if some of its fea
tures are not wholly in accord with their
individual opinions of the measure.
Although each was called upon to ex
press his views, there is a singular
dearth of strong criticism on the part of
the Democrats. In a general way the
Democrats protest against the bill with
out going into particulars. They admit
the probability oi its passing, but they
are evidently displeased with a measure
which offers the masses of the people free
sugar on the one band and the farmers
of the country additional protection on
important articles which they produce,
on the other band.
The result is summarized as follows :
Total number interviewed, 209. Total
number of Republicans interviewed,
159. Number of Republicans who
believe that the bill for the revision of
the tariff and reducing the revenue must
be passed before this Congress adjourns,
twenty. Number now ready to vote for
the McKinley bill as it stands, 141.
Number who believe the McKinley bill is
sure to be satisfactory to the party and
country by amendments, if passed, 118.
Number who are not sure about it, 7.
YOU MUST HAVE A "FAD."
The Memory Hoop Has the Attention of
the Gothamites at Present.
If you stand for all you should in your
service to the present age you must have
a "fad." It doesn't make much differ
ence what it is—it may be fond or foolish
or profound, Ibsen or violets, but some
thing exclusive and all your own it must
be, and you must cherish it as you do
your own personality. If you have any
ingenuity,think out your own "fad"—the
more pains the thinking of it costs you,the
more successful it is likely to. be. If you
haven't the requisite amount of in
genuity, find somebody who has, if you
can, and get him to furnish you with
If that isn't possible, then you will
have to adopt one of the lesser "fads"
that belong in common to the world of |
young women. Chief among these at
present is the memory hoop, which per
haps will suit you as well as anything.
To begin the memory hoop, you must
first have a hoop made of some polished
wood about as big as a barrel. Then you
must get each of your girl friends to give
you a piece of her favorite colored rib
bon with her initials worked thereon.
These bits of ribbons you wind round,
round the hoop until the wood is en
tirely covered. Then have the hoop
suspended horizontally over your dress
ing table or .your reading chair, and now
the real work in connection with the
memory hoop begins. Each one of your
men friends must be Bailed upon to con
tribute an old-fashwhed copper two
cent piece. It may put him to a deal of
trouble, but a man won't mind a little
trouble surely, if it is reasonably certain
to result in his being perpetuated within
the magic circle of the memory hoop.
So when he has secured the copper two
cent piece, he must have his initials en
graved on one side with the date, and a
line of poetry on the other. Then the
polished disk is suspended from the
hoop by a bit of ribbon of the color of
the dress you happen to have on when
the copper is given to you.
Now the real sentimental utility of
the memory hoop reveals itself. When
any one of the coppers grows dim and
tarnished it doesn't mean in this case,
as it ordinarily would, that the chem
istry of the air is at work—it hath a far
deeper meaning than this, and goeth on
to signify that the giver is in some
"peculiar circumstances of trial or dis
tress," as the prayer book or some
other equally good authority has
it, and that you must write to
him at once and offer him as
appropriate consolation as you can, not
quite knowing ' whether his distress
comes from having backed the wrong
horse at the races, or because the girl he
loves has broken her engagement with
him. But do the best you can, and he
will be comforted and you will be canon
ized, and the ration d'etre of the memory
hoop will be established, between you
two at any rate, beyond the suspicion of
a doubt.—[New York Sun.

THE FLORIDIANS' KICK.
They Resent President Harrison's Re
flections on Their State.
Jacksonville. Fla., April 27. —Editor
Hawthorne, of the Times-Union, pub
lishes an open letter to President Har
rison, stating that the people of Florida
regard the President's letter to the At
torney-General with surprise and a deep
sense of injury. They are convinced
that the statements it contains must
have been based upon misinformation
as to the actual state of affairs in the
counties named. Hawthorne proceeds
to cast discredit upon the reports by
charging that District Judge Swaine
boasted that the policy of his couit
would be the persecution of Democrats.
The letter also asserts that the jury
Commissioner flagrantly discriminates
against Democrats, and that wholesale
indictments against Demociats for po

SACRAMENTO VISITED BY FIRE
Several Firms Burned Out—A Number of
Spectators Injured by the Collapse of
Sacramento, April 27.—Fire broke out
tonight in the paint and oil store of Sul
livan, Kelly & Co., and, the store being
filled with inflammable material, was
soon a mass of flames. The Are was
confined to the building, although
the surrounding property was badly
damaged by water? The "building was
owned by Green & Trainer, and
is almost a total loss. The
stock of Sullivan, Kelly & Co. was
totally destroyed; loss about $30,000,
partially covered by insurance. The
cause is unknown. During the progress
of the lire the sidewalk on the
apposite side of the street
gave way,- and twenty or thirty
people fell fifteen feet into a basement.
A number of persons, including two
ladies, were severely injured, and a
Chinaman had a leg broken.
THEY ACCEPT THE CUT.
The Employees of the United States Ex
press Co. Will Not Strike.
Chicago, April 27. —All fears of strike
by the employees of the United States
p]xpress Company were banished today.
The men by unanimous vote decided to
accept for the present, at least, the re
duced scale of wages. Vice-President
Crosby has told them that the reduction
is absolutely necessary. The unre
strained competition of the express com
panies necessitated unprofitable con
tracts with railroads, and the employees
have been paid regularly when the
stockholders received nothing. A pledge
was given that when the condition of the
company would warrant it, the salaries
would lie restored.
THE NATIVE SONS.
Chico Giving the Grand Parlor a Cordial
Chico, Cal., April 27. —Every prepara

afforded the Grand Parlor. The busi
ness portion of the town is a mass of
bunting and Native Sons' colors. Head
quarters has been established at the
Park hotel. A large number of visitors
arrived last night. The town is rapidly
filling with strangers. Grand Secretary
Lunstedt arrived this morning and was
met by a delegation of the Chico Parlor.
The Park band from San Francisco, with
the majority of the delegates from that
place, arrived this morning. The con

A Manager Mobbed.
Long Island City, April 27.—There
was a lively time at the Recreation ball
grounds this afternoon. The Metropoli
tan baseball nine were to have played
the Senators, and 000 people paid admis

The Metropolitans offered to
play a picked nine, but the
offer did not please the crowd,
who shouted for the return of their ad
mission money. Manager Ryan offered
to give checks good for next Sunday's
game. This made the crowd angry, and
they set upon the manager, whose

Aii Attempt to Muzzle the
Press in Brazil.
The Provisional Government
Realizes Its Mistake.
Newspapers Forced Out of Business
by Restrictive Decrees.
Part of the Restrictions Finally Removed.
Rumors Still Rife of Impending
Associated Press Dispatches. 1
Rio de Jeneiro, March 31. —The
Government has at last taken official
notice of the false reports and alarming
rumors which have been frequently cir
culated, and Marshal Fonseca has issued
a lengthy decree regarding these re
ports, which be says are highly injuri
ous to the foreign credit of Brazil, be
sides being intended to create alarm and
panic at home. The decree declares all
persons who originate or aid in circulat
ing such reports subject to the decree of
December 23d last, which provides that
they be guilty of military sedition. From
this provision is excluded written or
verbal criticism of Government acts for
the purpose of exposing, correcting and
preventing administrative errors, pro
vided it be free from personalities and
When the decree of December 23d was
issued the editor of the Tribune, (the
organ of the last monarchial ministry),
discontinued the publication of that
paper, alleging that the decree was de
structive of the freedom of the press.
Other papers, already guarded in tone,
became more so, and the discussion of
political matters was almost confined
to private circles. In these, however, it
became more and more lively, causing
no little annoyance to the ministers and
Then there arose a feeling favorable to
the freedom of the press, and shortly
after two members of the ministry
gave an open expression to this
feeling. In the latter part of February,
the official paper published a declaration
of the provisional Government, that the
decree of December 23d was not intended
to restrict the liberty of the press. Since
then the tone of the press has become
much bolder, and some very violent arti
cles against the Government have been
published. Rumors of all kinds have
continued to circulate and some of them
have found their way into the prees.
Dr. Pedro Tavores, the editor of a
paper at Campos, was arrested
yesterday for publishing articles
against the Government, but was
afterwards released. Tavores is
an original Republican. When
the republic was first proclaimed, he
was appointed Governor of Maranham,
but resigned shortly after because the
Government annulled his decree sep
arating church and state. He then es
tablished an opposition paper.
One notable article published in a
San Paulo paper, by ex-Minister of the
Interior Lobo, says, in part: "Let them
say what they please, there must exist,
enveloped in the cloud of mystery which
the provisional Government has not
been able to penetrate, an element that
is conspiring against our present in
stitutions and against the future
of the republic. There is something
singular in the reports which from time
to time spring into circulation, and
which are becoming more and more fre
quent. They originate simultaneously
at distant points, and spread over the
country as if conveyed by a network of
wires. The celebrated and lamentable
insurrection of the soldiers was pre
viously announced at different places.
The provisional Government could per
ceive that some hidden hand was touch
ing the springs of'a plot against it, but
this hand it was never able to discover."

Beginning of the Combat of Flowers at

City of Mexico, April 27.—The flower
feast, or combat of flowers, began this
afternoon. One hundred thousand peo
ple were on the promenades. In ad

carriages containing sight-seers, there
were over forty carriages adorned with
flowers and ribbons, and fully one

Stanley Likely to Swear Allegiance to
London, April 27. Stanley was inter
viewed yesterday as to the rumor that
he is to become a British subject. He
replied that it would be premature to
answer that question.
"My heart," he added, will always be
with America. On account of my future
work I may formally have to declare my
self a British subject. At present I con
sider myself an American citizen. I owe
my first start in life to America, and
shall never forget it."
It is believed the British Government
intends to effer Stanley the Governor-

tory in Africa as mapped out by him.

SUNDAY BALL GAMES.
CALIFORNIA LEAGUE CLUBS PUT IN
The Oaklands Win Both Games From San
Francisco and the Sacramentos Do the
Same From Stockton.
San Fbancisco, April 27.—The Oak
lands and San Franciscos played at the
Oakland grounds this morning. Spears
and Lohinan caught, while Young and
Meegan were the pitchers. Both pitched
line ball and were given excellent sup
port. After the game at Oakland the
San Franciscos and Oaklands came over
to the city, where they played another
game. The makeup of the teams was
similar to that of the morning, with the
exception of a change in batteries, Look
abaugh and Stephens, for San
Francisco, while Oakland placed
Cobb in the box. The afternoon game,
although more closely contested, was not
as interesting as the morning game.
The Oaklands outplayed the 'Friscos in
every point. Lookabaugh and Cobb
pitched good ball, but the latter was
considerably more effective in his de

Sacramento Vs. Stockton.

tween the Stocktons and Sacramentos
this afternoon was a fine one. The
home team outplayed the visitors both
at the bat and in the field, but pre

Sacramento, April 27.—The Sacra
mentos beat the Stocktons this afternoon
for the second time today, by a score of

the sixth inning, but his support was so
bad that he seemed to become discour
