BAT ClTT, Mich., March 3. What had
been! looked forward to as one of thepleas
antest days in the history of F. W. Wheeler
& Co.'s shipyard at West Bay City yes
terday terminated in a most frightful ac
cident. The company was to lay the keel
of the Centurion, the 100th boat built by
them, and it was an event of more than
ordinary importance, drawing people from
all over the Saginaw fcilley. When the
timbers had been placed and the speeches
and presentation of a silver ink service
to the company had been made the vast
throng adjourned to the wood-working
yard where Xo. 90, a large wooden schoon
er built for Colin McLaughlin and others,
of Port Huron, was to be launched.
Disregarded Timely Earning.
The steambarge Kittie fc. Forbes lay
frozen in the ice on the north side of the
slip in which the ice had been broken be
fore the launch. Hundreds of boys and
many men flocked to the steamer and
climbed to her hurricane deck. They were
warned of their danger and told that the
swell from the, schooner whec launched
would knock them off, but many remained,
the view being very good from the point.
When all was ready at 4:45 o'clock, and the
last hawser cut, the schooner started slowly
for the water. Then with a rush she
plunged into the icy slip, and an immense
wave forced the ice and steamer Forbes
Into the air. The Forbes rolled until half
over, and then the crowd on shore saw a
sight which chilled them.
Thirty Thrown Into the Water.
Those who bad remained on the upper
deck were clinging on for life if they could
And projections, while less fortunate ones
were flying headlong toward the water.
Fully thirty were thrown overboard and
In an instant their black forms rose to the
surface betwten the two boats and in the
field of broken ice. How many are lost
has not been ascertained, but George Haw
kins and Ross Bennett, boys living in this
city, and Fred Peel, a Michigan Central
conductor from Detroit, are missing.
Fully a dozen, were injured, among them
being Fred Babcock, George Doyle, Wil
liam Battishill and George Clark. Batti
ahill U probably fatally injured.
The Missing; and Wounded.
The missing are: Ross Bennett, 10 year
eld, Bay City; George Hawkins. 15 years
old. Bay City: Pred Peel, railroad con
ductor, Detroit. Following is a list of the
most seriously injured: Fred Babcock,
painter, West Bay City, left leg and arm
broken; Willjam Battishill, painter, West
Bay City, "skull crushed cannot live;
George Clark, freight agent, West
Bay City, wounds about head and
internally Injured; George Doyle,

son, carpenter. Bay City arm broken.
Every one of the men saved from the
water was thoroughly drenched and some
of them sank twice before assistance
SWEPT BY A CYCLONE.
A Louisiana Parish Left a Wreck by a
Marksville, La., March 8. This parish
(Arroyells) was visited on Tuesday evening
by a terrible cyclone which left death and
destruction in its wake. The course of the
cyclone varied. First it was west, then
south, then northwest. " Its general course
was from west to northwest. Never in the
history of this parish has such destruction
been seen. Its path presents a scene which
is indeed pitiful and which baffles descrip
tion. The Scene Deluged with Kaln.
Scattered timber and uprooted trees now
mark the place where once large residences
stood. In addition to the violence of the
wind was a rain that . poured in volumes
for about an hour. It began with and was
a part of the misfortune of the occasion,
for all who were left homeless were ex
posed to it and in it sought to extricate
the two who were lying crushed to death
beneath the wreck, and pick up the wound
ed scattered about.
Only Two Fatalities Reported.
For it is a strange fact that only two per
sons were killed Maximilliaa Brouillette
and a child of Mr. Laborde. But forty
people were wounded, some seriously,
while others are only slightly hurt. The
following is a list of the bouses and
buildings blown down: Baptist church
(white), Baptist church (colored), houses of
Louis Deshantelles, Trevalle Denzato (and
all out bourn), Mrs. Bernard (and all out
houses), Mrs. Colonne Dupuis, Pierre
Dupuis, Jr., Louis Dupuis, Aristi
de Bennettes, Alcide Berddens,
Benoist Brouillette, Maxis Brouellette
(killed), Marcel Laborde (ntid gin), Marie
Maxis, Oyide Laborde. Valsin Laborde,
Elpheye Locheny, Ferdinand Cbauffled
(aud store), Raymond Bordelon. Giles Gas
pard, Laster Ford, Oliver Dupuis, and tho
Protestaut cemetery completely ruined.
This only in one neighborhood; particular
from other parts have not come in; but re
ports are that other places in the path of
the clycloue shared a like fate.
DISASTER CAUSED BY A PULLEY.

Rioted Against New Tolls.
Vienna, March 3. A riot attended by
severe fighting and bloodshed occurred
Wednesday in the town of Szoboszlo,
Hungary. The cause of the outbreak was
the imposition of the new market tolls,
which the populace of Szoboszlo and of the
Haidnck district resented. After a long
conflict the rioters were dispersed, three
of their number having been killed and
many seriously wounded. In addition to
the rioters killed durin j the fight a woman

The Block Tin Hill Will FalL

been struck in the sen ate in the progress
of the block tin and linen tariff bill and
the indications are tha- the bills after pass

taken up they will move to add to them
the various special taril bills sent over by
the bouse last session attacking the wool,
binding twine, cotton bagging and other
schedules of the McKii.ley tariff bill, which
are now in effect. The result has been to

ARKANSAS ClTT, Kan., March 8. Relia
Ie reports received here indicate that the
threatened invasion of the Cherokee strip
by home seekers has already begun. A dis
patch receivedtere yesterday from the
Pawnee agency says: 'The settlers made
a raid on this part of the Cherolcee strip
last Saturday and Sunday and now every
quarter section along Black Hear creek has
a settler on it. In fact all of the good
claims are taken by the people." All the
available troops at Forts Supply, Sill and
Reno were ordered out yesterday by Col
onel Wade, of Fort Heno, to patrol the
northern line of the Cherokee strip to repel
threatened invasion by boomers.
The Boomers Kxplain Themselves.
The Cherokee Settlers' association met
festerdiiy and issued the following:
"To Whom It Mat Concern: Unfortu
nately the settlers' meeting held some days
ago at Cale has placed the intended settlers
in an unfavorable light in the ryes of
many. We are not a mob. We are not a
band of outlaws; we are making no de
mands not in tlie line of justice and fair
honest dealing. We are a band of men en
titled to fair and honorable treatment
from all. We believe we have rights as
American citizens and we have the courage
to speak our convictions.
Notice Civen to Congress.
"A misconstruction of facts as to the in
tentions of the prospective settlers in and
about Arkansas City Las caused the occu
pation of the Cherokee strip by settlers.
We have nothing to say further than this:
In the event of a failure of action on the
part of congress before adjournment, be
lieving such a failure to mean a neglect of
duty toward the honest settlers, we say
to the settlers on the south, high noon on
the tith of March will find homeseekers of
the north with you in body and spirit"
