Ciiicai.o. July lu. It is M-l.lom that Chi
cago experienci such a sudden and furi
ous M.-.rm a that which c&ui?ht the peo
ple who attended Sunday afternoon church
en-ices', ami the thousands who spent
their holiday in the trks. From warm
weather and a clear sky in a remarkably
short space o( time there was a ch nee to
a hurricane, a deluge of rain and a bit?,
drop in the temjw-rature. It is probable
that there never were more people caught
in a rainstorm in Chicago before caught
no as to have to chant; their clothing.
Life Loot on the Lake.
It is not surprising that life was lost on
the lake the surprise was th so few
were lost art suddenly did the vr. 1 1 sweep
down. A number of boats were capsized,
for it had been an ideal day for a sail, but
at this writing but four drownings have
bten reported, although there were many
narrow escapes. This fatality was the re
sult of the capsizing of the sailing racht
Chesapeake, near the life saving station.
Xine people were thrown into the water
and four of them were drowned. The dead
are: Themistocles Fiambolis. W.B.Cornish,
Ethel H. Chase and Harvey Marlow. Those
who were rescued are: George Gray, Edith
Compton, Fred Avery, William Averv and
William Elliott. The Chesapeake was a
well built yacht and was owner bv the
Avery brothers, William and Fred. The
former was captain and is counted skillful
in handling a sailboat.
Brave Hesene hy a Ierkhand.
Ikhum Howell was alone in a row boat
about Am yard- when the squall struck
his craft and overturned it. The tug
Flora went to his rescue, but the waves
were so high that it was impossible to get
near enough to Howell to throw him a
line. Seeing that Hov.-.-'.l whs about to

rope to the waist of Albert Herman, a
deckhand, and told him to swim to the aid

Four boys. Went worth Higgins, Charles
Ruddard, Fred Hurnham and Arthur
Uurnham, had narrow escapes from
drowning. Their ltoat was overturned and
they were In the water forty-five minutes
before they were finally rescued in an ex

clung to it for thre-fuarters, of an hour
and was losing consciousness when "New
York ; Dutchie," one of the crew of the
Flora, swam to his assistance.
At the World's Fair City.
There was a wild scurrying at Jackson
park by the visitors there, and those out
Bide hastened to get Into the big buildings,
where, as it turned out they were not en
tirely safe. The force of the wind was so
great that the guards could not shut the
doors of the Liberal Arts building
and the glass in them was shattered
to bits, while the guards themselves were
thrown to the floor. Two sections of glass
roof ."VxlO feet were blown in and the
rain did some damage to the exhibits im
mediately underneath. At Agricultural
building a section of glass roof fell all
around a candy stand, but the fair dam
sel who presided thereover was not even
scratched. Two sections of the glass roof
on the Transportation building were also
blown in, and and some glass in Machin
ery hall. There was necessarily some dam
age done to exhibits, but nothing serious.
Two Other Itoys Miming.
It is learned that just before the storm
came up two boys, each about 16 years of
age, hired a boat at the foot of Harry
avenue. They were about a mile from
shore when the squall struck them.
Neither the boat nor its occupants have
reached shore, and it is feared the boys
DEATHS MAY REACH SIXTY-ONE.
The i'rolmble Boll at Poim-roy Other
Killed in the Country.
PoMi:ny, In., July 10. There are now
in the various hospitals here 113 people.
Of this number ten or twelve will die:
fifty are severely injured, but they stand a
better chance of living than of dying: fif
teen are quite badly hurt and the balance
have merely cuts and bruises, most of
them painful, but not dangerous. With
those that have died the death list readies
a total of forty nine. This does not in
clude the dozen or more who were killed
out in the country, but merely those who
were within the corporate limits of I'omi
roy when the cyclone swooped down upon
Henry Gulke, who had several bones
broken and who was internally injured,
was one of those who has succumbed. The
other was a baby. The 113 persons now in
the hospitals are not by any means all that
were injured. Fully fifty who were hurt
and many of them seriously, too, were
taken away by friends and relatives to ad
joining towns and farm houses nearby.
The streets are full of people who are hob
bling along with canes and crutches, or
who have their arms in slings or bandages
over their heads and faces. It is therefore
safe to say that fully 300 people were either
killed or wounded in the tornado.
In addition to the list already published
are the following dead. Missliauks. John
Iletty and two children, Kenry Gulke,
Mrs. K. J. Halve. Mrs. Henry Hulett,
Henry Hulett, Lena Kilbe, J. Molierlin,

POWDERLY S LABOR SCHEME.
It Means Control of Politics liy the Labor
NewYokk, July 10. No more Knights
of Labor, no mon Federation of Labor.but
a vast central couicil. representing all the
workmen in the United States by their
trades. Such is the plan for the labor un
ion of the future of General Master Work
man Powderly. In line with this plan is a
movement in the west for the erection of
a great central labor temple, where rep
sentatives of lain r from every state in the
United States can assemble for conference
at stated periods if the year.
Powderly gave his ideas at length on
the subject. "In the first place," he said,
"I believe that the labor union of the pres
ent and prist has seen its day of useful
ness. It can win no great strikes; it can
accomplish no gnsit reform. In the future
the power of the labor union will be its
great strength as- a political factor. The

guide him, says that labor unionism with

is ostensibly occasioned by stress of busi

councillor, but among his associates it is
asserted that the commissioner has lieen
called back to the Fatherland to escort
Emperor William to Chicago,
The Commissioner Has Hopes.
Commissioner Wermuth sajs that he
hopes ami confidently expects to return
before the close of the exposition, and that
fact strengthen the rumor. In an inter
view Mr. Wermuth said: "Of the fair as
a whole I may say impartially it is the
grandest exposition ever conceived. It is
the utmost anybody can accomplish. It
would lie dangerous to attempt to go
further, for to do so is more than human
energy can si-e. The highest thing I can
say of it is that I regret to leave it. The
fair is complete and the whole grand
scheme is the most beautiful thing the
centuries have produced.
Kaiser Billy Much Interested.
uOur papers are now full of its praises
and our people are all talking of the great
World's fair in Chicago. The emperor
himself is much interested and wants to
see it. I have reported to him that
a a people without much experience
in this regard have made the
greatest exhibition ever seen, beyond
which it is impossible to go, and I "have
described the splendid way in which the
work is donp. He is more than pleased.
He is delighted."'
Herr Wermuth Is Diplomatic.
"As a matter of fact, is it not to be one
of your duties on going home to escort Em
peror William to the fair?"
"I do not care to answer that question
now. Emperor William is very much in
terested, especially since he learned how
the people celebrated German day, but I
am not prepared to say that he will come."
Neither did the commissioner say that he

UP IN THE CAPTIVE BALLOON.
A Frightened Party of Highflyers J out
Landed In Time.
When the storm struck the park yester
day it came near causing a wreck in mid
air of the captive balloon with eight per
sons aboard. As the first puff of wind
came JErona nt Allison, who was up with
the passengers aliout 400 feet, saw that
a big blow -was at hand. He immediately
leaned over the car and signalled frantical
ly for the men below to pull the balloon
This is done by an engine and the way
that machine moved was a caution, for the
men saw the danger. The aeronaut's
haste was well advised. Hardly had the
passengers, sick with fear, been hustled
out of the car when the storm burst with
all its fury. Nothing was more striking
about the gust than its cyclonic sudden
ness. The bnlloou swayed and rocked and
the wind penetrated into its center, pres

Then there was a crash, a hissing soud.

the bill to a committee. The chancellor

about the operations of the surveyors who
are trying to find a feasible route to con

that a route has been found which runs
