An accident resulting in the death of 148 ?
fives occurred near the mouth of the Gulf of
flpezzia, Italy. At 1% o'clock a. m. the
Reamers Ortigia and Maria P. ran into each
ether, and the Maria P. was damaged so bad4jr
that she sank in a very short time.
The Maria P. had on hoard in addition to
fcer crew 176 passengers bound from Naples
for the River Plate. Most of them were emigrant?.
It was pitch dark when the collision
occurred, and there wa* a terrible scene
aboard the sinking steamer.
Most of the passengers were asleep in their
bunks at the time and were awakened by the

This boat also saved the thirty passengers. hi
The Maria P. was a schooner-rigged ir?n er

A dispatch from Findlay, Ohio, says: On
of 'the most destructive windstorms eve
known to have psssed over this part of th<
State occurred in and around Findlay, caus

its path. All day long the heat had been in

About 3 o'clock dark clouds appeared and i
slight breeze sprang up from the southwest
In half an hour rain began to fall and witl
scarcely a moment's warning the gal
burst forth and steadily increased L
fury until it was nothing short of )
tornado. It was of short duration
however, lasting only five minutes, but i
swept everything movable before it. Th
rain was blown along in such volume that i
person could not distinguish objects a feT
feet away. Several houses were unroofed, bu
the occupants escaped serious injury. Th
south wall and a portion of the roof of thi
Huber School building were demolished
Hardly a smokestack In the city was lef

Nearly every awning and sign In Main stree

Several large plate-glass fronts were broken
A large wagon of the American Ex
press Company was blown over whli
crossing Main street, and the driver wa
slightly injured. Hundreds of fruit an<
shade trees were broken off like pipe stems
rendering some streets impassable. Th<
Btorm did not extend far beyond the oiti
limits, and consequently no damage wai
done In tlw oil fields or to growing crops.
A dispatch from Lewiston, 111., says that t
cloudburst in that neighborhood did grea
damage to growing crops. Samuel 8haw, i
well-known citizen, was killed by a bolt o

Severe storms occurred in various parts o
Illinois and Indiana. At McCoinb, 111., light

sixteen horses had sought shelter. John
Barclay, Jr., was killed, and Roland McAlister
and William Cale severely shocked. A1

A fatal windstorm, accompanied by a
heavy rainfall, burst upon St. Clair, Mich.,
aoon after I o'clock p. m. For several
weeks prayers had been offered for rain.
Before the storm had spent itself a child had
been killed, two men Injured, and mud
property destroyed. The City Hal
j was partly demolished, hundred!
of trees were blown down, roofs wew

The roof was torn off the Hotel Cadillac. A

the roof of one of the largest store buildings
In the city.
| Rain, wind and hail storms over large
parts of Iowa did much damage to crops and
property. In the north part of the
state a storm swept a strip twenty-five
miles wide in Palo Alto, Emmett and Eos|
3uth Counties, and small grain was badlj
damaged. The corn will recover except ic
places where it was beaten down by hail. Ie
the mi'tdle of the storm strip was a section
about five miles wide, in which there was a
fierce hailstorm, and there the damage tc
crops was immense. In the eastern part ol
the State another storm did almost as much
damage. It started just east of Des Moines
and swept over the country as far as the Mississippi
River and south to the State line. A1
Brooklyn there was a waterspout which
amounted to a four-inch fall of water in
about an houi. It covered a wide section
and the streams were flooded. Bridges we?
carried out and there were many washouts
on the railroads. At Eeokuk the storm was
almost a tornado and many buildings were
unroofed and other damage done. There
was more or less hail and crops were badij

] JOHN MORLEY DEFEATED.
A Serloa? MUfortune to the Liberal Party
in Great Britain.
The Liberals received the new- of another
| serious defeat when It was announced that
John Morley, who was Chief Secretary for
Ireland under the Bosebery Government,
had been defeated at Newcastle-on-Tyne,
where both the Conservative candidates were
successful. The result of the election was
1 JOHK KOBLZ7.
* as follows: C. F. Hammond, Conservative,
? 12.883; W. D. Cruddas, Conservative, 12,170;
Z John Morley, Liberal, 11.802; J. Craig, Ltb?
eral, 11,154; F. Hamili, Labor, 2302. At the
* election of 1892 there was only one Conservative
candidate opposed to two Liberals, and
the total Conservative vote then was 13,823,
1 to 25,053 polled during the election Jus<
i ended, a gain of 11,230 votes for the Conseri
vatives. Mr. Morlev, in 1892, polled 11,903
* votes, and when ne was re-elected in the
same year on taking office as Chief Secretary
j for Ireland, he polled 12,928 votes, consequently
he received 1126 v*t*s less than
* he did when re-etected in 1892.
The defeat of Mr. Morley caused a great
' sensation throughout Great Britain. After
* the result of the election was announced,
" Mr. Morley, in a speech at Newcastle, said:
? "This is one of the most tremendous battlea
? ever fought in any British constituency, and
I jrreatly regret to say we have been defeated.
' But we have before shown that we knew
* how to bear triumph with moderation, and
[ I hope we shall show that we know how to
bear defeat with cheerful courage." (Cheers).
At the conclusion of his remarks Mr. Mor:

Wyoming be expected to do so? Please wire

The clause in the treaty between the Bannock
Indians and the United States, under
which the Indians claim they wore within
their rights in hunting in the Jackson's Hole
district, is as follows:
"The Indians herein named agree that they
will make said reservation their permanent
home, and they will make no permanent
settlement elsewhere; but they shall have
their ri?ht to hunt on the unoccupied lands
of the United States so long as game may be
found thereon, and so long as peace exists

of the hunting districts."
