'he first knowledge of the
ter was contained in a telegran
ent to Mayor Ames from St. Cloud,
reporting tMe disaster and asking that
a special be sent with physicians.
A samilar dispatch was received from
Sank Rapids. Innediately upon re
ceipt of these messages preparations
were made to respond to the call for
help. A train for St. Cloud left at 6
o'clock. Information at hand is very
meagre, and setisational reports are
current that one hundred people were
killed. It is believed that at least
forty persons have been killed and
about seventy-five wounded, but it is
impossible to get much information as
yet. All is excitement and the streets
are Uiled with men and frightened
wohien and children. The disaster is
certainly appalling. As nearly as can
be learned scores of houses have been
entirely wrecked. Twelve physicians
were aboard the relief train -yhich left
for St. Cloud.
ST. PAUL, April 14.-Private advices
say the storm struck the railroad be
tween the round house and depot, and
swept a path 600 yards wide through
the city, levelling between 1.50 and 200
houss. H1. M. Clark, a well-known
lumberman who lives in St. Cloud,
sayaininety persons were killed and
more 4than 100 injured, many very
seriously. Superintendent Wakeman

doubli that number injured.

S'. 9LQCD, MXns, April 15.- A few
mitmtes after 4 o'clock yesterday after
noon the skies became overcast with a
dark cloud, and a great black mass
rose ovr the hills sonthwest of the
city, arutcoming with terrible velocity
to the western outskirts in a direct line

where its'curse was diverted and f ol
1owed the river banks until it reached
Sank Rapids, where it diverged to the
leWi,- passing directly throught the cen

The utmost excitement prevailed.
Women and children fled from their
houees and rushed aimlessly about in

an avalance of boards and brick. Men

monster that had so viciously pounced
upon them. They were like cockle
shells in the grasp of the whirlwind,
and were picked up and tossed in the
air and rent into a thousand pieces.
The earth was plowed up in the line of
the-cyclone, and the path over which
it passed, to a width of nearly a quar
ter of a mile, looks as though it had
been upheaved by a terrible volcanic
eruption. It hid hardly begun its
terribte work before it was finished,
and the scene that greeted the eyes of
those who had escaped its fury was
one that caused the stoutest heart to
shaddir. The cries and shrieks of the
wounded rent the air, and the ground
was strewn with the bodies of the
dead. Among them were stalwart
men, weak women, and weaker child

SAUK RAPIDS, Mrs., April 15.---The

The court-house is now a heap of ruins,
and several county ofhxcers are killed.
The Union school-house, the Presby

the postoffice, a flour mill and a large
muchine shop were all converted into
kindling wood in less time than it takes
to tell it. What was once the centre
of the town is now covered with
debris--timber, doors, pieces of furni
tvre, etc. Only the City Hotel re
mains intact. The Northern Pacific
depot is lIterally blown away and a
large number of freight cars over

Scarcely a vestige of any of the

The'force of the storm was such az
to wrench off the door of the ,afe in

bell weighing 1,000 pou)nds was found
among the debris lour hundred feet
away from any buildiig. The re

blackened. There are a remarkable
number injured about the hips and
spine. Many of the survivors will be
disabled for life.
Thirty-one persons are already dead.
The list will be swelled to forty. Dr.
Ames, of Minneapolis, who is on duty
at St. Cloud, informed Dr. Dolliver
that at least tLirty deaths can but re

The freight house was totally wrecked.
The roof was lifted aid blown several

BLIND CHAPLAIN MILBURN.
Soei of the Characteristics of the 1arson
Whose Public Prayers Please the Fe.
(1mn the Thukbiiton Post.)
The Rev. Dr. Milburn, the blind
Chaptain of the H[ouse of Representa
tives, whose prayers are inst now
creating a sensation, is a remarkable
man in more than one respect. Forty
three years ago he was told by emi
neut doctors tsat he would be dead
within six months, and since that time
he has traveled, by actual computation,
a million and a half miles in his voca
tion. le is now physically, although
i his sixty-fourth year, as .trong and
robust as most men of thirty, and his
intellect is of more than common
power. He can give more accurate
descriptions of Westminster Abbey,
Cologne Cathedral, Nctre Dame and
the other Old Word monuments than
can the majority of those persons who
have not been deoendent on otlher
people's eyes and on their sense of
touch. He can describe the rocky
outlines and mountainous declivities of
the Sierras and of th'e Rocky Motuntains
and of the picturesque beauties of the
Blue Ridge with a force and vigror
combined with accuracy, rarely equaLl
ed, even by writers who still retain
their sight, white he has beein blind
since he was five years old. It is his
wonderful power of thus describing in
simple language the concrete things of
lite that renders his sermons and
prayers so forceful and attracts to themi
such widespread attention. llis tirst
invocation to attract notice in the
House was a vigorous denumnciation~ of
stock gambling, but recently he cast
all previous utterances in the s.hade by
referring to the present labor troubles
in such a manner as to call fort h from
a Representative the remark that it
was "an incendiary ap~ee:hi."
A reporter of th~e P~at found Dr.
Milburn enjoying the delight of a
long-stemmed pipe. A t the reporter's
entrance the Doctor arose, and, in a
hearty voice, said he was "hIad to sce"
him. The reverend gentleinan is of
tall and commanding peenece. Broad
chested and inclined to stotnetiW, he is
the picture of health. A full, tun
trimmed gray beard floats way~ down
his v'est, while his black hair, streaked
with silver, is bruthed back trom his
bigh forehead and hana~s in brushy
laxuriance Upon the collar of his cler
Ical coat. Ilis strongly-tmarked feat
ures bear a kindly expression, and are
every now and then lit up by a pleas
ant smile. While talkina- he fixes his
eyes upon the pertson whom he is
addressing, and the sightless orbs
appear to look straight into the soul of
his listener, lie is a most entertain
inig talker, and onte of his favorite
hobbies is the subject of health antd
its promotion. ile is a very Jew in
his selectionl of tood, po-itively eschew
ing all hog mneats, and he treats him
self to a regular course of curry-comb-,
and rough towel, cold water, oil and
sun-baths every morning. As lhe
himself says, he -is one of the best
groomed meni in the country.

being cold enouglh to freeze, after a
few hours of suns hilne all traces of the
snow disappeared, leaving no visible
sign of damage either to the fruit crop
or to vegetation. Since then the
weather has been such as to cause
everything to put on a new aspect of
life and vigor.
The fariers throughout the country
are very busy :ziakizn preparations, as
usual, for a large crop of cotton. This
is a gooc corn country, but cotton is
made the leading crop. There is very
little small --rain raised bere, and what
is, is generally sown late in the spring,
as the abundance of rain aid the hard
freezes during lhe winter almost in
variably prove destructive to fIall sow
There has been the greatest demand
on the pamrL of farmiers this spring for
supplies I ever heard of. This is
partly owing to the fact. that the inilux
of imnmigrat ion during tie past winter
was unusually large, tuost of the new
comers being negroes who had just
enough, or but little more ioney than
it took to defray their expenises liere,
and Owing to certain hanges. made in
the mnortg'age aw by out- last Legisla
ture, a mortgage on crop without itock
or some kind of real estate is not valid
security. Ience tany have experi
etteed considerable difficult v in obtain
ing supplies. Blut the new-comers are
not alone inl this respect. There is a
class of farmers here, as there is every
whecre, I suppose, who, from a lack of
foresight and proper ecotnomy, or from
other causes, have gotten behind, and
depend altogether on the credit ;ystemn
for supplies during til the summtetr, and
they live hard, they pay :tulch enor

THE IRISH PARLIA3MENT.
The Text of 3Ir. Glads~tone's Famous Bill
for tthe Future Government of Ireland
The I louse of Commons having voted
permission to Mr. Gladstone to intr-o
duce his hill for the bete governtmett
of Ireclanid, the official text of thte meas
tre is tnow made public. It debamrs the
Irish Parliament fr-omt legislating con
cernitng the status, dignty ot- succes
siont of the Crown, ftrm passinmg laws
affecting peace or wat- the at-ty or
navy, miilitia or v-oluntceers, or- the
defencee of the realm. amid ft-om takmng
anty action concer-ning te thr-eign or.
colonial relationms of the Emapire.
Among othetr subjects placed beyonud
tile power of the Irish Governmnetnt to
deal with are digntities, titles and hion
ors5, pr-izes and booties of war-, offences
agaittst the law of tnationis, tteasont atnd
aienaige, usvigationt, co)pyight, pat
ents, mautils, telegr-aphs, coinamgc,
weights and meastures. The bill turthi
eri pr-ohibits Ir-elanid from doing atny
thing to establish oi- endow ny r
ligion, or to disturitb or confer anyv
piivileges otn account of r-eligious be
lief, and also forbids it to impose cus
toms or- excise duties. The Queen is
given tile same prer-ogative to sutmmton,
rrto-ogue atnd dissolve the Ir-i~h Legis
latui-e as she has with mespect to the
Imperial Par-liametnt. To her Majesty
is also given the power to er-ect fot-ts,
asetals, magazines anid dock yatrds.
The Ir-ish Legislature is permtiitted to
impose taxes to be paid into the comn
solidated fund to detr-ay the expetnses
of the public service in Irelanid, sub
ject to the provisions of the lIrish land
putchase bili, but is not to either r-aise
or rspp oprmiate revenues without the
recotfmendationi of the Queenm, made
through the lor-d lieutenanttt. Chut-ch
popertyt ini Irelanid is to belong to the

The executive govermnr.ent of Ir
1.ind is vested by the Queen in a lord
lieutetnat, who will gover-n withi the
aid of such officers and counicils as the
Queen may appoint, and will give or
withhold the Queen's assentt to such
bills ats the Irish Legislat ure mtay pass.
The absetnce of modification of the
home r-ule bill dishear-tens the Liber-als,
and a~tnovemtent is on foot to obtaini
Gladstone's assentt to the itroduction
of a mnotiomn asking thte Hlouse of Comn
mon~ts, before the seconid r-eaditng of the
bill, to adopt a r-esolutiotn simply
afiming tile inecessity of establishing
