By order of the Democratic Congressional Com
mittee of the Eleventh congressional district of
llinois. J. W.POTTKK, Chairman
Monmonth, 111., July 13,1390.
Lillian Rivers, a young woman who
created a Bensation a year ago by escap
lag from the Beth an? college at Topeka,
Kas., is courting fame again by having a
diamond set conspicuously in one of her
front teeth. She recently made her ap
pearance on the streets of Philadelphia
displaying this innovation, and the effect
when she smiled was said to be startling,
flavins; once seen it you could well say,
"her bright smile haunts ms still."
The Vrarril OptalAn.
Congressman Qest. of Rock Island, has
been renominated. That was a foregone
conclusion. But in the Eleventh Illinois
district a republican nomination does not
mean an election. Mr. GeBt will have
harder time of it getting there this year
than be did in 1886 or 1888. There is no
man in that district capable of giving
him so much trouble as Ben T. Cable,
who is likely to lead the democrats to
victory next November. Davenport
Truthful words, Mr. Democrat! Gtst
will never be reelected to congress from
this district. Our nrxt congressman will
be a democrat, and his name is Cable.
Senator Ccllom, who is a member of
the senate's commerce committee, says
that the river and harbor bill will cer
tainly be passed at this session of con
gress. "It is only a question of a few
weeks at most." he continued. "The
committee on commerce has instructed
Chairman Frye to consult the managers
of the tariff bill and learn their views
upon the question of giving way to the
river and harbor bill incase the tariff da
bate runs along beyond a reasonable
time. There is such a demand for ao
Uon on the tariff that we are willing to
let the river and harbor bill await a vote
on that measure, but if the debate is un
duly prolonged the committee on com
merce will insist on consideration of its
measure as an appropriation bill."
It l Tine teqalt.
The members of the Fifty-first congress
night go farther and fare worse than lis
ten to the counsel of the venerable editor
of the f biladelpbia lAagtr. which is in
effect that the statesmen pack their bag
and go home and stay there. The Ledger
opines that the country will fare very
well until December, when the new con
gress will convene. Mr. Child a paper
gives this advice largely on the gronnd of
party expediency and does not hesitate to
aay that the longer the republican major
ity continues at Washington the more
barm it does to the republican party and
its chances of success later on.
There is hardly any room for doubt,
aays Mr. Childs' paper, that the prolong
ation of the session must result in both
public mischief and in embarrassment to
the republican party organization if there
shall be an attempt to force the election
bill through against the manifest instinct
of republican senators to the contrary, or
if there shall be s railar purpose to enact
the Mckinley tariff bill in anything like
its present form or any probable shape
to tight at this time.
The Evening Pott puts it on the higher
ground of national good a.Dd nations,
honor. The Fifty-first congress has do
veloped more and more invidious forms
of political chicanery and political row
dyism than any of its predecessors with
in the memory of men now living. Much
that has been done can never be undone
the record can never be recalled; but
there will be some atonement in a unani
mous vote by the members to snuff the
session out Chicago Pott.

rence at about 9:15 o'clock Saturday fore
noon, and in fifteen minutes had killed
eight people, seriously injured from fif

twenty more, cut a swath through a
thickly populated section 300 feet wide

Just Missed the Crowded Mills.
-South Lawrence is a busy railroad Junc
tion, and is occupied mainly by well-to-do
mechanics. The northern boundary of the
belt of destruction was but three streets
south of the lofty mills with their busy
throngs of thousands of workers, showing
how narrow was the escape from a more
appalling loss of life aud property. It was
a veritable do day. The air was hot aud
humid. Dark clouds scurried westerly
through the heavens, with an intermittent
rain. Suddenly the wind veered to the
west, an inky-black, coal-like cloud s -emeJ
to drop from the cumulous mass hanging
in the southwest, and moving rapidly with
an'ful aspect toward the city.
The Onslaught of the Tempest.
It was accompanied by torrents of rain.
In an instant the crash came. Buildings
were crushed like egg shells. Some were
lifted from their foundations and dashed
to pieces. Othere were tipped over or
blown from their positions and more or
less damaged. The air was filled with
flying debris. Most of those who mat
death in the wreck were killed instantly.
Many lav unconscious in the ruins of
their homes, groaning.
Work of the Wild Wind.
The cyclone demolished everything in
its course. In Union square over 500 trees
were leveled. On Emmet street the wind
lifted a house belonging to Thomas Evans
and threw it into the road a complete
wreck. Mr. Evans' wife and baby were
in the house at the time, but escaped with
out injury. One house was occupied by
James Lyons and family. On the ap
proach of the storm Mr. Lyons rushed
Into the house, seized the baby from his
wife's arms and fled to the street. Both
man and child escaped, but the dead body
of Mrs. Lyons was subsequently taken
from the ruins.
Working People the Sufferers.
Innumerable instances of loss of life or
remarkable escapes occurred. The occu
pants of the ruined houses were mostly
hard working mechanics and laborers
whose homes represented a lifetime of
toil. The engineer on the 8:30 express
from Boston saw the cyclone as he was
Bearing South Lawrence and stopped his
train, thus probably ssiving the lives of
his passengers, as his train was due In
South I-Awrence about the time the cy
clone struck. A slight fire started in one
of the houses, but was promptly extin
guished. But for the heavy rain fire
would undoubtedly have added to the
horror of the scene.
Names of the Eight Dead.
The following is a list of the dead
Michael Higgins, aged 35; Mrs. Mary
O'Connell, aged 34; Miss Mary O Council
aged 17; Mrs. Elizabeth Collins; Annie
Collins, aged 6; Hannah Beattie, aged 0;
Mrs. Mary Lyons, and Helen Cutler.
The Most Seriously Hurt.
Most of the Injured were taken to pri
vate houses, but a number were conveyed
to the hospital. The worst injured are as
follows: Andrew Hart, will probably die;
Patrick Nugent, cut on cheek; Lizzie
Oldsworth, badly bruised; Bridget McDer-

ated wrist; Mrs. Merriman, scalp wound;

How One Man Found His Wife.
One man, who owned a house a short
distance east of South Lawrence, hurried
home when he heard of the storm to find
his place. His house had been blown over
to the east, and while the leeward side
was all jammed together the windward
front was lifted up fully ten feet in the
air. Fire was already beginning to blaze
among the ruins. He forced his way
through the timbers to hi sitting room.
and there on the floor, under the piano, he
found his wire. A pile ol bricks was on
top of the piano. At one end of the in
strument was a big stick of timber; at the
other was all the flooring of the room
above. But the pjano )egs were big
and strong. They held up under all the
pressure, and his wife Jwas rescued 'alive
(lingular Feature of the Storm.
What seemed singular about the cyclone
was the fact that soma of the oldest and
most rotten houses stood the gale well,
while new blocks of brick and wood fell
in masses of ruins. Houses which atill
stand have all lost shutters, chimneys or
windows. As soon as the apents of the
mills learned of the catastrophe they di
rected their carpenters, mechanics and
other male employes who could be spared
to repair to the scene with saws, axes and
bars to assist in removing debris. The
work of the storm was so severe that

HORSE RACING EXTRAORDINARY.

Saraxac, Mich., July 28. Horse racing
under MethodUt ministerial auspices has
caught on here in public favor and Sara-
nac was completely filled with people Sat
urday to witness Rev. J. W. Arney'a driv
ing matinee. Most of Mr. Arney'a flock
regard his ideas on horse racing as being
rather in advance of the Methodist belief,
but no eruption has occurred in bis church
here. The people as a whole sem proud
to claim as their own a man 'vho can ery

The races in themselves were fairly at

had them in charge aud was foremost In
bringing the event to a successful termina
tion made the affair unusually interest
ing. Sinners and saints alik-i turned out
to witness the day s sport. In the three-
minute class, best three in fivs, half-mile

tured the race In straight bests, amid the
prolonged cheers of the spectators. Iqthe
3-year-oid trotting race Dodger, also owned
by Mr. Arney, captured flrit place. A
proposition was made to cnt I he colt race
short owing to the limited Uiro, when the
crowd called to Mr. Arney to flmh the
Ilia Keverenre View of the Matter.
This caused him to look grave. There
was no open betting ou the a rounds. In
an interview Parson Arney siid that he
had been actjve in verting the races up.
because no one else did it, anc be wanted
it done. As to racing, he was born to en
joy it, and was sorry It had b;eu so much
abused. Good people had never thought
it wrong for him to try his own speed at
foot-races while at college, at d he asked
why they should object to his trying the
speed of bis horses.

New York, July 23. Twenty seven cow
boys made Capt. Morgan and the officers

Wanted Kootn to Projaenaie.
The cattlemen who left London e July
10 on the Chicago were a little more live
ly than the usual lot. Two days after the
ship sailed several of them were caught
tearing down the cattle pens. When the
secoud mate asked them what they meant
they answered that they wanted more
room to promenade in. The second mate
told them to stop and they threatened to
give him a thrashing it he did not speak
civilly. He got them to desist bv threat
ening to report them to the captain. One
of them said that if they were not treated
with more considerat on they would call
up the boys" and take charge of the ship.
Had Liberty to Snlt.
As there were only twelve men above
deck, and no firearms aboard, the second
mate looked upon this project as unpleas
antly feasible. The cattlemen had pretty
much all the liberty they wanted, and
they wanted lots of it. They strolled into
the captain's cabin when he wasn't there 1
(and sometimes when he was), aud made
themselves almost as much at home as if
they were co-partners in command. Some
of the cattlemen went forward to sleep, as
it was cooler there. The whole ship com
pany was aroused by a fight in the cattle
men's new quarters on the night of
Let Them Fight It Out.
A dozen or more of them were drunk.
They were allowed to fight it out. The
third mate found out early next day
where they had got their hunor. One of
the cattlemen, mistaking the mate for a
common sailor, took a bottle of Bass out
of the nook forward and gave it to him.
The mate reported to the captain, who,
accompanied by some of the sailors, went
forward and found the hatch broken open
