Terrible Effect of Storm
Baltimore. Md., July 21. A tornado,
accompanied by thunder, vivid light
ning and a heavy rain, suddenly burst
upon P.altltnore at l-'io p. in. yesterday,
coming from the southwest, with the
net result that eleven persons lost
their lives, hundreds of houses were
unroofed, trees in the public parks and
streets were torn up by the roots,
many "buildings damaged and several
people injured. The storm exhausted,
its fury in less than 15 minutes. The
damage done in the business part of
ihe city was comparatively slight, be
ing confined to the blowing down of
tigns and injuries to roofs. It was hi
the residence portion of the city along
the river front and in the harbor
where the wind spent its violence.
Most of the Dead Are Children.
Of those who perished nine were
drowned in the harlior from open
boats, one was killed by a falling tr-e
and one by a live wire. The following
is a list of the killed: Drowned in the
harbor Uoy rateinan, 12 years old;
Joseph Cain, 10 years; John Cain, 0
years; Thomas Carroll, 21 years; Har
ry McCormick, iy years; Mrs. Mary
Schuler, 28 years; Harry S. Schuler,
10 months; Olive Schuler, 4 years;
Charles Schuler, 7 "years. Killed by a
falling tree William Cornish, colored.
Killed by a live wire Charles Schae
How Some of Thetn Died.
The first three victims on the above
list were out in a rowboat on the
' river, with three other companions.
When the storm broke the boat was
capsized, three being drowned and
three rescued. The boy killed by a
live wire had, in company with two
other boys, gone into a' shed for pro
tection, when the shed blew down and
a live wire fell ou one of them, re-"
suiting in his death. .The drowning of
Mrs. Schuler and her children was the
most pathetic incident of the hurri
cane. Michael Schuler, with his wife
and three children, accompanied 'by
his brother-in-law, Joseph Cook, and
his wife, had gone out into the baiitor
for a sail in a thirty-foot boat. The
boat was capsized and those drowned
, wore shut up in the nbin.
FARMS ARK IN A WASTE OF WATERS
Scenery Along the Mississippi Picture a
Loss of Six Million Dollars.
Keokuk, la., July 21. Exploration
Of the flooded districts of the Missis
sippi river from Keokuk south shows
. conditions beyond the appreciation or
realization of any but people of long
experience with the Fathers of Waters
In his inost-destriictive'inood. The sit

a great eonllagratlon in a great city

the slightest chance of stopping this
dozen-times most costly flood in the
history of the great river above St.

penniless and homeless, hundreds
watching and praying that -the great
levees may hold, which are now their,
bulwark against additional millions of
loss and many cases of penury.
Careful estimates of the territory
covered and generalization of the
statements of best informed people
indicate the loss up to yesterday is
about $0,000,000, with everv prospect
of $2,000,000 or $3,000,000 additional.
Most of this loss is on the Missouri
side of the river between Keokuk and
Hannibal. Passing tbe"watcr-lapped

of the Des Moines river Is seen to be

WILL STICK IT OUT
Convention Decides to Carry on
the Anthrocite Strike as a
Te3t of Endurance.
PLAN THAT WAS FINALY ADOPTED
Address Issued to the People Justi
lying the Strike. and Asking
the Fu pile to Help,
Indianapolis, July 21. Having de
clared against a general strike, adopt
ed a reiort calling on the United
States people to contribute $1,000,000
a month to aid the striking anthracite
miners, provided for a maintenance
fund and issued a stirring appeal to
public opinion, the United Miue Work
el's' convention sang "America" at 1 p.
m. Saturday and adjourned. The ap
peal to the public recites at length the
hardships and low wages of themluers,
declares that they have lived up to the
letter and spirit of their contracts and
still refused to violate them. Intimates
that the purj.Kse of the operators is to
destroy the miners' union and then
urges the people at iarge -to bring all
possible pressure to bear on the officers
of the anthracite coal interests, to in
duce them to treat considerately the
appeal of the miners for arbitration.
Says the Struggle Will Go On.
It also says: "There is no more rea
son why we should be required to sell
our htlor at a lower price than we
are asking for it than that a member
of a corporation should be compelled to
sell his stock when he wants to keep
it. The struggle in the an
thracite region will be continued until
our demands have been granted or a
competent board of arbitration has de
clared that we are wrong." The report
of the special committee, which was
adopted unanimously, is as follows:
- . "First That the national sit-rotary-treasurer
of the United Mine Workers
be authorized to appropriate S.'iO.OOO
from the funds of the national treas
ury for the benefit of the districts 1. 7,
and ! (these are the anthracite dis
.triets). "Second That all districts and sub
districts and local unions be asked to
donate whatever they can afford for
the support of the strike.
Three Kinds of Assessments.
"Third That an assessment of 10
per cent, be levied upon the earnings
of members of the unions t, S, 12, 13,
19. 23 and 25, and that an assessment
of 1 per cent, per week be made of the
members of districts 2. 5. 11. 14, 15.
10, 20 and 21. This assessment is not
to be made against members of unions
now ' on strike, but in such cases the
assessments are to commence when
the strikes are over, the manner of
this being arranged by the unions.
"Fourth The assessments to be
paid direct by the local unions to Sec
reta ry-Trea surer Wilson.
"Sixth That the assessments begin
from July 10." Other provisions are
that all the money is to go to the an
thracite region and that the idle men
be given other work as far as possi
ble. Seems Plenty of Money In Sight.
The miners of Illinois announced
that they nave appropriated $50,000
from their treasury for the support of
the anthracite strike. Ohio gave $10.
0O0. and Iowa and Indiana promised
contributions to be made later. Presi
dent Mitchell declared that there was
approximately $1,000,000 in the treas
uries of the various local unions and
that his construction of the clause di

they could afford" was one-half of this

FILIPINO AND FRIAR
What a Roman Catholic Priest
Says of the People and
HOLD! TO THE CHTTEOH OF HOME
But Some Orders ef Friars Are l'n
popular Because They Own
FL rani, Minn., July 21. Rev. Pat
rick J. Hart, a Roman Catholic clergy
man, formerly of St. Taul, who spent
two years and n half as chaplain with
the United States forces in the Philip
pines, says of conditions in the archi
pelago: "The Filipino people are in
tensely Catholic, most firmly attached
to the priests of the Catholic church,
devoted to its practices and animated
in all their relations with deep relig
ious sentiments. There is no antipa
thy whatever on their part to ' the
priests of the Catholic church, as such.
Their attachment to the native Fili
pino priests was unlimited. If they
show opposition to the friars it is for
other reasons than for that of their
priesthood. They show no opposition
whatsoever to the Jesuits, Lazarists or
Capuchins; on the contrary, to mem
bers of those orders they are much at
tached. Four Orders Not Liked.
"A fact, however, so plain and visi
ble to me, and 1 could not close my
eyes to it, was that the Filipino
showed much antipathy to the mem
bers of the Augustiuiau, Dominican,
Recollet and Franciscan orders. I'.e
fore Admiral Dewey's fleet arrived in
the harbor of Manila the members of
those religious orders, who had been
previously scattered through the arch
ipelago, had been driven into Manila,
where alone their lives were in safety.
Of those that had not come into Ma
nila some were actually put to death
and the others imprisoned and even
cruelly tortured. Those who had been
imprisoned were ultimately released
by the American army.
Keuson That Tiiey Are Hated.
"The question is raised, of course,
why such antipathy was shown by the
Filipinos to the members of those spe
cific orders. From my observations
the reasons are the following: They
Mere the land-holding friars. The Fil
ipinos were their tenants and had been
for long years paying- rent to them,
which rent was collected from the peo
ple in the name of the Spanish govern
ment. The original acquisition of those
lands by the friars were tho possible
Intentions and principles. The people,
then savages, were gathered upon
those lands by the friars, civilized and
Where the Friars Erred.
"The mistake of the friars was this:
They having civilized and Christian
ized the people, they failed to observe
what was the fruits of their own
teachings, the development in the peo
ple of a sense of independence which
led those people to the desire of being
proprietors themselves. The friars
should have aided in making tliein pro
irrietors. It is a case over again of
Irish landlordism and tenancy."

"The offer is insulting and will in

One of Field' Crair Jokes.
In his biography of Eugene Field
Slason Thompson says that shortly aft
er the humorist's arrival ia Chicago It
occurred to him one bleak day in De
cember that it was time the people
knew there was a stranger in town.
So he arrayed himself in a long linen
duster, buttoned up from knees to col
lar, put an old straw hat on his head
and, taking a shabby book under one
arm and a pa If leaf fan in his band, he
marched all the way down Clark street,
past the city hall, to the office. Every
where along the route he was greeted
with jeers or pitying words, as his ap
pearance excited the mirth or commis
eration of the passersby.
When he reached the cutrance to The
Daily News otlice, he was followed by
a motley crowd of noisy urchins, whom
he dismissed with a grimace and the
cabalistic gesture with which Nicholas
Kooran perplexed and repulsed An
tony van Corlear from the battlement
of the fortress on Rensselaersteln.
Then, closing the door in their aston
ished faces, he mounted tho two nights
of stairs to the editorial rooms, where
he recounted, with the glee bf the boy
he was in such things, tho success of
Praise of Work Well Done.
Perhaps there is nothing else 60
productive of cheerful, helpful service
as the expression of approval or praise
of work well done, and yet there is
nothing N so grudgingly, so meagerly
given by employers. Many of them
seem to think that commendation is
demoralizing and that the voicing of
appreciation will lead to listlessnesa
and tho withdrawal of energy and in
terest. This evinces but a poor knowl
edge of human nature, which is al
ways hungering for approbation. But
how mistaken such views are is shown
by the loyal and unstinted service giv
en to those large minded men who
treat their employees as members of a
family committed to their care. Suc
