KANSAS CITT, ORONOGA. MACON CITY AND OTH
ER TOWNS OF WESTERN MISSOWI STRUCK
Bt A CYCLONE. BCSTROYIK MANY
LIVES AND A VAST AMOUNT OF.
Kansas City was visited by her flrfct cy
clone about 4 o'clock on Sunday afternoon,
aud from all accounts it mutt have been a
destructive one. Trom Ibc accounts pub
lished in the Kansas City papers come 200
houses were demolished or greatly Injured,
four persons killed, half a hundred more or
less injured, and one or two hundred thou
sand dollars, woith ol property destroyed.
A storm approaching from the southwest
was met by another from the west. The
two united, forming that whirling moticn
commonly called a cvclonc, which struck
the city and went tearing through the
streets leveling every thing In its course.
Krom the Journal and Timet ol yesterday
morning wc take the following account:
Almost wiping Argentine aud the other
suburbs from the face ot the earth, It cross
ed tho Kawand struck the Stock Exchange.
Here It killed Its first victim In the city and
commenced the tcrribledcstructlon of prop
crt) by partly wrecking the exchange build
ing". With a bound It cleared West Kansas
City and leaped upon the crest of the bluff
to Sixteenth and Jefferson streets.
The firce of the storm is Incomprehensi
ble. Trees as large aa a man's body were
suapped and hurled away almost as if they
were straws, and heavy limbers aud roofs
were picked up and carried for blocks. The
track of the cyclone was from 150 to 200
aidsulde, and, from Its point of contact
with the top cf the bluff, trended east by
northeast, half cast. Iu its course it took
iu the residence pait or the elty mainly, and
ouly injured business bou-e.s when it struck
Grand Atcuuc. Iu tome instances the
slotm very oddly demolished substantial
brick structures, aud permitted small aud
weak frames immediately adjoining to re
main standing. Within the limits of the
cyclone nearly every house suffered more or
Ic-s. Windows were blown out, porches
.wrenched away, tree torn up or broken off,
roofs lifted or wallssprungor settled. Very
few houses escaped some kind ol Injury,
and in the majority of cases the furniture,
even down lo llic most secure rooms, were
A bow: Wyandotte tho storm was even
more tcliible than in Kansas City. The Wo
cjilones started from one common storm
center, which was a Idsek cloud formation
southwest of Wyandotte. The cyclone
which went iioitheast crossed the rher
about a mile above Wyandotte, aud the
sears il left ou the eai tli's surface show that
It was amoiepoweiful storm. When this
culoue was lasl seen it was spinning tow-
aids the norllieastataterriblcratcol speed.
At Kausas City at leastlifly building and
residence are completely destroyed, while
2ts) more are badly damaged. The saddest
featuio is, ol course, the loss of life, and It
serins almost like a miracle that not more
thau four persons wrru killed, and had the
storm fallen upon tho city at light the loss
would have been appalling. Atterthe wind
had spent its fury In tho eastern portion of
the city the rain continued to fall as it had
never fallen before for at least ten minutes,
and the streets became torrents of running
water. Lightning played about the heav
ens, while peals of thunder added grandeur
to the fecne, but later in the evening the
urn broke through the clouds, a rainbow
appeared in the southeast as If to remind
the world of the promi-cof old, and the
storm was over.
Three people were killed outright in Kan
sas City aud a great many wounded and
mangled, (literal fatally. The loss in the
county is now placed at 7t,iK)0, or more.
Much ol It, damage to shrubbery aud house
hold goods, cannot be computed. The in
dividual looses on buiidiugsis generally be
low ?i,0is) , and are so numerous that a lie
tailed statement Is impracticable. Kamp's
biewery, one church and several of the bet
ter houses are damaged fsom $l,0n0 to J,.
ooo, but the large aggregate Is made up of
small auiouut". Kcports from the branch
of the storm which crossed Wyandotte
county, esllmite the loss at f IO,OOP.
Of the Heed family, near Wyandotte, Mrs.
Heed and one child arc dead, and Mr. Kccd
and three other children are badly hurt.
Their recov cry i doubtful. They were all
in the house at the time the building) Was
torn to pieces. ,; ,
A dispatch from Urooklicld, siys flr per
sons w;rc killed and ten or fifteen wound-
At Macon City, on the Hannibal & St Joe
railroad, for forty miles tho wires arc down
on both sides of the tow n. Therefore notli
in confirmatory can be learned yet.
The storm struck the town of Oronogn,
ou the Trisco railroad, in the shape of a
cyclone and und in a few minutes the town
was entirely destroyed with the exception
of a Tew buildings in the southeastern part.
.Si x persons werekilled, thirty-lhrec wound
ed, many seriously mid perhnps lataliy.
The storm was not so disastrous at Webb
City as at lirst reported. Very few people
wcie hurt and uonc killed. A few houses
were unroofed and some moved oil' their
foundations. Itusihcss signs were carried
three miles from the city by the wind.
The St. Louls'ilispatchcs of Monday night
say the telegraph wires are still prostrated
between here aud the seeuc of yesterday's
clone iu southwest Missouri, and no defi
nC hifbjmntiou regarding it has yet been
received. In a general way it is stated that
Orouoga was totally destroyed and a mini
rof persons injured, but none killed.
A relief frain was started from Joplin,
but il could not proceed, owing to the rail
road being covered with (alien timber, aud
il was obliged to return. Further efforts
are being made to reach the place, both by
train and telegraph and it Is believed lliat
news or tbeslliilillon there will soon be re
ceived. At Liberty several houses wcredestroyed
or badly damaged, aud Iu the country ad
jacent several farm houses and other build
ings were blown down, fences destroyed,
and trees uprooted. Capt..lolin Thompson
was severely hurt and his horse killed while
passing n barn that was blown down.
At Missouri City, on the Missouri river,
tho steamer llrown Light was torn from her
moolinas and blowu across the river aud
saud bar. It Is not staled
whether she was damaged or uot
Kcar Pattonsburg the storm was severe,
leveling several houses blowing down trees
fences and so forth. Fragments ot houses
aud pieces of clothing wcro blown into
1'attousburg from across Grand river, indi
cating a good deal of destruction doue ou
the south side of that stream.
At Troy, Kausas, stxteen mllrs west of
St. Joscph,two liouc. were demolished but
there was no one hurt.
A dispatch from Springfield, says tele
graphic communication with Oronogn ha.
been restored, but the particulars of the
ravages ol the cyclone cannot be obtained.
It is know n, however, that all the business
part of town and about two-thirds of th-j
residences were demolished, and three per
sons were killed outright and thirty-five to
It Is thought that Webb City andJopHn
escaped serious Injuries, although signs and
purls or awnings belonging In Webb City
were carried In Orouoga, a distance of sev
eral miles, by the wind. Telegraphic lines
wcra blown down for fifteen miles In differ
ent directions. The St. Louis & Sail Fran-
I cisco railroad escaped with slight damage.

The crowning business Is about played
out on this earth. This or the next gener
ation will tee the last of that relic of stu
pidity and barbarism. But the new Czar
is going to make his a memorable one. The
coronation or the Czar, Alexander HI,
will, it is thought, bo the grandest and
most magnificent ceremony of this kind of
the prcssnt century. Besides the festivi
ties In the Kremlin, the great fetes for the
people will be one of the most interesting
parts of the coronation program. The
enormous Chodynski plains are now the
scene of the most busy preparations.

ponents or a great Itusslan fair an being
erected, with stands for the spectators,
and an imperial pavilion opposite to the

least 400,000 persons will be present. Drink
and food for the people will be distributed
from one hundred and twenty decorated
railway baggage cars, transformed into
temporary bars and drawn up in one long
row. I'vcry guest will receive an earthen

aud the date of the coronation, with which
he can call lor Ids beer aud mead. The
Malcnuikoff factory at Moscow furnished
40.1,000 of these Jugs in different sizes aud

receive two meat pies, candies, dried trulls
The Chicago Timet says: A tripartite
agreement has been consummated, the par
tics to which arc the Atchison, Topcka &
Santa Fe, St. Louis & San Francisco and
the Atlantic & Pacific railroads. Under
this agreement the controlling interest in
the St. Louis & San Francisco road is sc
cured to the Atlantic Ik Pacific, the latter
agreeing to stop the construction of its
lines west ot the Colorado river for the
present, but will be permitted to proceed
with the completion of the work, cventu
idly, to the Pacific coast, making Sail Fran.
cisco the western terminus, as originally
contemplated. Should this agreement be
faithfully kept by the other parties, the
Atlantic & Pacific will not bo permitted to
reach San Francisco for the full term of
contract, which Is twenty years, aud the
controlling interest which It has secured
in the St. Louis San Francisco is practi
cally a stoppage or the cxtention of that
line, and equivalent to merge Its franchise
iu the Atlantic A Pacific. The connections
of this line to tho Pacific coast will be from
the Colorado river over a branch of the
Southern Pacific to Mohave, then by the
main lino to San Francisco and Los An
gelcs. The new arrangement goes luto
effect at once.
Senator Plumb, of Kansas, has been
looking the political situation in the face
and has this to say about it :
The l'epublicaii party is a proselyting
party ; it may scatter badly between presi
dcutial elections, but it manages to gel
together once In four years. It is Indo
pcndcnt,jand always finds fault with its
ticket -'after' it is nominated, grumbles a
good deal, shows signs or insubordination
until .after the Democratic convention,
When It loots the Democratic ticket over
and turns to (tis own with the remark : "I

FEELIN6 THEIR POCKETS.
The great Democratic journals are evi
dently uneasy over their party's attitude
ou the tariff question. As aglitteringgcn
crality "free trade" sounds nice, but the
policy won't take with a Nation of people
who Ictl In their pockets for results. The
Courier-Journal, and other free trade or
gans of the country are respectfully refer
red to the following from, a Democratic
..utboiily, the New York H'erW, which
takes the portion held by an.ajsrlty of the
"U the advice or the IIWW is taken the
'battle Tor free trade pure and simple' will
be 'fought out after the National debt hss
been paid oil' aud the pensious stopped aud
the expenses or the Federal Government
:irc reduced lo the lowest point compatible
with decent efficiency iu all departments."
Major Henry Inman, in commenting on
the action or a board of architects who bad
been discussing the tornado problem in Its
relation to buildings, lays :
"All the efforts of the architects in the
world would bo perfectly lutlle against the
effect of the tornado ; its force bas a power
derived from electricity, and Its energy Is
irresistible. It can as easily demolish the
grandest structure ever reared by man as it
can the veriest shanty. Wc are Inclined to
believe that the storms In Mississippi, to
which tho lleriUl refers, were hurricanes
or strong winds and their force measured
by pounds per square foot. The energy of
tho tornado, on the contrary, is an ineom
mcnturable quantity, and bas nothing to do
with simple impingement of force on a sur
face; It is a burning, twisting effect, defy.
lug any thing that man can construct."
DANA AND THE PRESIDENCY.
Charles A.Dsna.of the New York s5', in
tervlcvvcd by the Denver Tribune, tayt that
political parties now make it a rule to.selec
their Presidential candidates in doubtful
States. There has been no exception to
this rule since 182. when Frank Pierce wai
nominated. Thls.he said, "necessarily ex
cludes some of the ablest men In both par
tics men who might give lustre totbeoflee
of President, such a, John Qufney Adam,
ot Massachuesctta: Senator Edmunds la
Vermont; Senator llayard In Dele ware, or
Senator Tngalls In Kansas." He thinks
the Republicans will nominate In 1884, eith
er Gov Cornell, or JJVY., Secretary Lincoln
or Ueu. Logan, of Ills., or Gen'. Ben. Har
rison, or Irid., while the Democrats will
nominate either Gen. Palmer, of 111., Joe
McDonald, of Ind., or ex-Senator Thurman,
of Ohio. Since Mr. Tildent withdrawal, In
