SEVERE STORM SCARE.
The Town of Galva Visited by a
Heavy Rains and High WlsfcM Play
H ivof in the t'lty and at Many
Other Flares One Killed and
Several Injured at dialva.
T lis city was visited last night by one
of the seversest storms of wind, rain and
hail that has been seen here for some
tim . Shortly after 6 o'clock last evening-
dark ominous looking clouds over
spr ad the horizon that caused no little
con -ternation about the city . The storm
kiajr was not long in mustering her forces
and in a few minutes the temperature be
can e perceptibly lower, a strong; wind
can e up and with it driving sheets of
blii ding rain. For a few moments pre
ced ng the rain the wind blew a terrific
gali;, fenceB, awnings and signs were
blown down and trees bent and uprooted.
A sign over Davidson's restaurant blew
down striking the large plate-lass win
dow below and bteaking it in, another at
the Crown restaurant next door swung
log': and whs just prevented by some by
stander from swinging against the
windows. At Bamberger's clothing store
a iarge plate-glass that had been pre
viously cracked was blown in by the gale
and a portion of the bill boards at the
corner of Twentieth street and Second
ayi nue were blown down. The torrent
of water that fell filled numerous cellars
in different parts of the city and flooded
ditches and sidewalks so that it was al
mc st impossible to move along the streets
after the rain. To make matters worse
tb smoke stack of the electric light
station in Moline was blown down ana
Um entire city circuit of electric lights,
besides those in a large number of busi
ness houses were extinguished, leaving
lh greater part of the city ii. almost total
da kness. This together with the flooded
co ldnion of the walks made it decidedly
unpleasant for pedestrians.
The storm was a yery severe 6train on
th' syndicate electric lines on nccount of
its being so intensely electrified, and
would undoubtedly have resulted more
se-iously had it not been for the prompt
ness and efficiency of Electrical En
gi leer Fredericks, who was out from the
time th : storm came on until morning.
H i had all the currents switched off as
Hi ickly as possible, but nevertheless, the
sfain on the short circuit in the station
w is so .reat that a crank disc on one
o: the new Ideal engines whs broken so
tl st the latter was disabled, It was
mcessary to send a part of it to Spring
fit Id for repairs, and in the meantime
tie Company was obliged tn cut out
The Davis Company's power for the Mos
line Central lite and all their other
Dovei service, wtich will not be running
arain until the engine is repaired.
Another of the freaks of the wind last
n ght was the breakirg ofl of the trunk
o a tree 10 inches in diameter in Fred
Hiss' yard on First avenue.
In South Rock Island there was consid
erable minor damages by wind and hail,
tl e most serious of which was that at the
0 lippianock nursery owned by Henry
G-ietbje. Nearly 8(10 panes of glass in
his hot housc3 were broken by the hail
and a large number of plants and dowers
destroyed. The houses were completely
f! ioded with water, which will be a great
inconvenience to Mr. Oaethje in destroy
ing beds, etc. The loss will not be less
tl an $2(H) besides the inconvenience that
hi' is put to.
At Milan the storm did considerable
di.mage also in the way of leveling fences,
etc., trees being blown down but nothing
was seriously damaged . About a mile and
a half south of Milan the storm again dis
p ayed a greater force approaching almost
t( a cyclone. It came from west to east
aid covered a path about a half mile
wide. Barns and outhouses were blown
d iwn and fences and sheds were leyeled
to the ground. On the farm of John
liet ig considerable damage was done.
Eis house was unroofed and his barn ard
si me outhouses were almost completely
d :molished. Jacob Simmons' barn in the
some locality was also demolished and
hivoc was played bv the wind on the
p-emises of Henry Bastian and others.
So injury has yet been reported to any
o le in that vicinity.
The storm was the most serious at
Galva of any place in this vicinity. It
s'ruck there the fiercest at 8:10 and laBted
b it a few minutes, but in that brief space
n any hundreds of dollars worth of dam
a ;e was done.
The wind struck the northwest end of
t) e R. I. & P. depot and demolished a
p irtion of the building. Two churches
and an elevator were more or less dam
a red. The Mulford Steam Heating works
a id the Hayes wind mill building were
b idly damaged and a large number of
dwellings were blown down. The C, B.
&. Q round house, a frame building with
four stalls was also completely derr oi
ls bed. Several persons were injured and
o le died from the effects of injuries re
ceived. The path of the storm was
through the center of the town, which is
n w said to present a desolated appear
a ice. At Alpha there was also a hard
b ow but no serious damage was done.
The storm was general all over the

this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the

The republican congressional com
mittee met at the efflce tt City At
torney J. L. Haas this morning to Let
upon the date of the congressional con
vention which Chairman Haas last May
called in this city July 7. The commit
tee decided to change the time of the
convention to August 17. and the place
to Bushnell. The basis of representation
was fixed at one delegate for
every 175 votes for Harrison
instead of one for every 200. thus in
creasing the number of delegates from
98 to ISO, The action of the committee
is a direct slap at Chairman Haas, who,
ia the interest of Gest, called the meetinc
early in July and ignored the lower end
of the district entirely; and the commit
tee also ignored the Union's desire for an
eirly convention. The committee is evi
dently badly rattled, and mav be looked
upon to meet again between this and
