STORM-SWEPT STATES I
ILLINOIS, 'INDIANA, OHIO
AND MICHIGAN.
rh Telegraph Service to All IVntalnthe.
Four Mute Virtually Deal roy-l for
Time Only One Wire Out of Chicago
-Storm Most Severe.
Chicago, Nov. 27. The storm which
raged in this and adjoining' states last
night and early this morning: was one
of the. worst on record. The Western
Union Telegraph Company was com
pletely disabled and the Postal Tele
graph Company had the only wires out
of the city and alono prevented this
eity from being entirely cut off from
the world.
The total depth of the snowfall in
this section since Sunday evening hns
been about. 12.0 inches. This is tho
heaviest snowfall reported in Chicago
for November in the lust twelve years.
Uusiness of every sort is greatly
crippled in Chicago to-day. Suburban
trains on the steam railways are
greatly delayed, while some of the
trolley lines had to be abandoned en
tirely. At 10:30 o'clock the Western Union
Telegraph company had established
communication between this city and
St. Louis, and wus accepting Associ
ated 1'ress news and general business.
An hour before practically not a tick
of a "sounder" was heard in this city,
the telegraph offices being silent.
Old operators said that they had not
known such a state of thing in thirty
years. The general demoralization of
the wires wus due to the heavy wet
enow and high wind which had broken
them clown in all directions. A few
remained intact, but they were use
less onacconntof others being broken,
which crossed and grounded them.
On account of the complete prostra
tion or crossing of the wires, how far
the storm has extended is not known,
but as far as can be judged ut this
hour the principal trouble seems to be
in the vicinity of Chicago, due doubt
less to the large number of overhead
wires.
Meager reports show that the storm
was as severe in Michigan, Indiana
' and Ohio as in Illinois, but it is impos
sible to obtain and details at present,
all wires to Indianapolis, Cincinnati,
Cleveland and Detroit being down.
SOUTHWEST AFFECTED.
St. Louis Street Railway IJeuioralirci
Heavy Nnotr at Many Point.
St. Loiis, Mo., Nov. 27. The storm
almost completely demoralized street
railway service yesterday and last
night, the electric lines suffering es
pecially. Reports from all parts of Missouri,
Arkansas, Iowa and Northern Texas
were that there had been an unusually
heavy fall of snow, with more or less
wind and prostration of telegraph
wcres. Trains generally were de
layed and in Texas the storm swept
over the ranches, covering them with
snow several inches deep, severely ex
posing all kinds of live stock to its
fury. If the temperature falls much
lower in that section there will be
great loss of cattle and sheep. As it
is, there is much suffering.
At Kama City.
Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 27. At the
United States signal ofticc, in the
Rialto building, the wenthcr prognos
ticates were handicapped by tho ef
fects of the snow storm. It had raged
with intense fury in tho central .Mis
sissippi valley, though the snow full J
was not heavy. Jtclween Kansas City
and St. Louis the Western Union
wires were down in many instances,
and the wires still on the poles were
working weakly. At 11 o'clock no
reports had ennio from Chicago, so
badly crippled was the telegraph ser
vice. The snow fall at Kansas City
during the past twenty-four hours
was.3'5 inches. The snow fall for the
State was .70.

STRIKERS' RIGHTS.
The Mianonrl Snpreme Conrt Kendrr
Dei-lalon of Much Interest.
Je ffkhson City, Mo., Nov. 27When
the employes of the Ilumilton-Hrown
Shoo Company of St Louis struck
some months ago, tho strikers, led by
A. J. Saxey, undertook to picket tho
buiiding, and by entreaties, threats
and intimidation, induce other em
ployes to join them, and visited their
houses at night and renewed their im
portunities and threats. The com
pany applied to Judge Vallinnt of the
St, Louis Circuit court for an injunc
tion restraining the strikers from in
any way interfering with tho em
ployes. This was granted. The
strikers claimed that if any offense
had been committed, it was a criminal
one, entitling them to a trial by jury,
and that a court of equity had do juris
diction over tho matter, und appealed
to the Supreme court.
With the full concurrence of the Su
preme court, Judgo Jirace rendered
the decision to-day. Ho holds that
while a court of equity has no juris-,
diction ovqr a criminal proceeding,
yet un injunction to protect property
from injury is within the scope of au
thority of such a tribunal. Defining
the rights of employers und employes,
ho says: "The injunction in this case
does not hinder tho defendants from
doing anything that they claim they
have a right to do. They are free
men und have the right to quit the cm
ploy of plaintiffs whenever they see
fit to do so, and no one can
prevent them and whether their
act of quitting is wise or unwise,
just or unjust, it is nobody's
business but their own. And they
have a right to use fair persuasion to
induce others to join them in quitting.
Hut when fair persuasion is exhausted,
they have no right to resort to force
or threats of violence. The law will
protect their freedom ud1 their rights,
but it will not permit thorn to affect
the freedom and rights of others. The
same law which guarantees the de
fendants their right to quit the em
ployment of the plaintiffs at their will
and pleasure also guarantees the other
employes to remain at their will and
pleasure. The defendants are their
own masters, but they are not the
masters of the other employes and not
only are they not their masters, but
they are not even their guardians."
MURDERED ON A BOAT.
Three Men and a lloy Found Killed
Near Arthur tily, I. T.
Paris, Texas, Nov. 27. Three weeks
ago three men bought a covered boat
above Arthur City, f. T., and with a
dog started 011 a fishing and hunting
trip down the river. Seveaal days ugo
the boat anchored just below that
pluce. No signs of life were observed
on it und finally a party of citi.ens
decided to investigate.
On the deck was seen a man with
his head almost severed from his body.
A nereedog prevented the investitators
from boarding the boat for a time, but
the animal was finally overcome.
Then it was found that the other two
men and the boy had been murdered
while asleep in their berths in the
cabin, all of their heads being crushed
lu. All had been dead for several days.

O'Connor of Muryvllle Meet lllm.
Sr. Joski'h, Mo., Nov. 27. The wife
and children of .lohn O'Connor, the
Mary villo postmaster who disappeared
thirteen years ugo, saw him in jail
last night for the first time since he
went away. He clasped the hand of
the wife ho had abandoned so long
ago and each gazed long and earnestly
into the face of the other. Then
O'Connor turned and embraced his 10-year-old
daughter, who was a child of
3 when he disappeared.
Mrs. O'Connor had never believed
that the man in jail here was her hus
band until sho stood face to face with
him. She recognized him at the first
glance, although he is wonderfully
changed.

THE SIJLTAX GIVES IN
ACCEDES TO THE DEMAND
OF THE POWERS.
Firmans Ismied Allowing Four (ireat
Tn'atlmm t:i Hive an Fttra Veel at
t'oimtanlinole Anieriran Missionaries
ut Kearput Not Well Trolected.
Constant ixopi.e, Nov. '2$. Tho
Turkish minister for foreign affairs,
Tewfik Pasha, called upon Sir Philip
Curric, the Hritish ambassador, and
announced that the port had decided
to issue the lirznans providing for the
passage through the Durudunelles of
the extra guurdships demanded by
Oreut Hrituiu, Russia, Italy and Aus
tria, us additional protection for the
safety of the foreign population here
in view of the recent rioting in the
streets. This puts an end to a very
dangerous situation, for there is no
doubt that the powers would have in
sisted upon having the extra gunboats
here.
Fuller details of the burning of the
American lAission buildings at Khurput
show that the Turkish government of
ficials, in spite of the (abundance of
promises of protection for the Ameri
can missionaries and their property,
made by the porte to United States
Minister Terrell and to the Americans
themselves by the authorities of Khar
put, utterly failed to guard the Ameri
cans. No protection was offered un
til the massacre hud actually occurred
and the American mission buildings
burned. The value of the American
property destroyed was about 5100,000.
It consisted of the girls' college, theo
logical seminary, the chapel and live
residences. All of the personal effects
of the Americans, missionaries, the
libraries, scientific instruments, etc.,
were stolen. So far only a sraali pro
portion of the property has been re
covered. The ladv missionaries were
in great terror while the rioting was
going on. The authorities of Khar
put, however, protected the mission
aries after the latter tied from their
residences to the official quarters.
Some of the American missionaries,
including Dr. and Mrs. Crosby and
Wheeler, Mr. Kllisund Mrs. f'oyudjiun
and iier children, have arrived here.
The other members of the Kastern
Turkey Mission at Khurput elected to
remain there for the present.
All reports agree in establishing the
fact that the rioting was fearful; that
several hundred Armenians, men,
women and children, were butchered;
that the massacre seemed to be pre
meditated and the Turkish troops, if
they did not take part in the slaugh
ter, as the Armenians claim, certainly
made no effort to stop it.
Mr. Terrell, when informed of the
destruction of the mission buildings
at Kbarput, made a strong formal pro
test to the porte, und as soon us the
work of collecting all the data neces
sary is completed, he will demand the
immediute payment of an indemnity.
When he intimated that this would be
done, he was assured that the Turkish
government would pay the indemnity
required as soon as all the facts in the
case should be established.
THE COST OF BAD ROADS.
IlnnilrrdH of Million Wasted Fvsrjr Year
In A merli n.
Wamiinhton, Nov. 23. The road in
quiry bureau of the Department of
Agriculture has received returns from
about 1,200 counties, showing the aver
age length of haul from farms to mar
kets or shipping points to be twelve
miles, the average weight for a loud
for two horses 2,002 pounds and the
average cost per ton Der mile twenty
five cents. Kstimuting the farm pro
ducts at 219,824.227 tons in weight,
and making estimates on other arti
cles carried over the public rodds. it is
calculated that the aggregate expeuso
of this transportation in the United
States is S-'4f.,4l4,i)t'i." per annum.
lieports have been asked from tho
United States consuls abroad of the
expense of hauling where the roads
are good, so as tj render possible a
calculation which will show how much
of this vast outlay i? due to bad roads.
The estimate is ventured, however,
upon information in the oCico, count
ing the loss of time In reaching mar
kets, the enforced idleness and the
wear uud tear to the live stock and
hauling machinery caused by pour
roads, that two-third, of the cost
might be saved by improvement of the
roads.

WANTS NO THIRD TERM.
. . .
K. C. Ilrnedlrt. t'levelamrj CloKett Friend
Spend.
New Touk, Nov. 28. It was an
nounced lust evening by E. C. Dene
diet, the trusted und intimate friend
! of President Cleveland, that the presi
j dent will not under any circumstances
accept the nomination for a third
term. Mr. Benedict has long enjoyed
the confidence of Mr. Cleveland and is
so close in his relations with him that
this statement has a semi-oilleial com
plexion. Mr. lienediet said: "I am certain
that Mr. Cleveland would decline an
other nomination if it were offered
him. I am positive that he doesn't
want to serve a third term. .1 am
equally positive that he could
not be persuaded under any circum
stances to accept the nomination if it
should be tendered him. I have heard
him say that he intended to make a
tour of the world at the expiration of
his second term; that he wanted to
see more of tho world than ho hud
seen and that he had his traveling
companion already picked out at
least that he had asked a personal
friend of his to accompany him on the
tour."
In making this statement ' for pub
lication, Mr. Benedict has so fur de
parted from his previous reticence
with regard to Mr. Cleveland's affairs,
that it lias special significance.
To-day Mr. Benedict said further:
"Mr. Cleveland does not make me con
fidant. 1 can not speak for him with
authority, and I don't like to be placed
iu the position of acting as his mouth
piece. It is not a pleasant position
for one to be in by any means. I feel
positive that Mr. Cleveland doe3 not
want to serve as President for a third
term. He feels that he has done
enough for his country and no longer
cares for the successes or defeats of
politics. I feel certain mind I don't
say 1 am certain that he could
not be persuaded to accept a
re-nomination. It has not been
offered yet. 1 feel certain, and
there are little social matters into
which it is not necessary to go, that
Mr. Cleveland is anxious to get out of
politics. He wishes to enjoy the sov
ereignty of the citizen rather than the
servitude of the State. He is count
ing the days and hours until he can
return to private life.-'
"There are some who say Mr. Cleve
land must accept a rcnomination,"
was suggested.
"I feel that he will not."
"Then he will have to make a de
claration to that effect."
"I think," was the reply made
slowly, "that he will cither refute or
confirm what I have said ut an early
day over his own signature."
DEATH BEFORE DIVORCE.
Teter Mrfieorh of I.ard Corner Fame
Stioot lilnmolf.
MiMVAtKKK, Wis., Nov. 28. Peter
Mctieoch, millionaire, known through
out the country as a daring specula
tor and keen financier, the man who
ran the great lard corner in 1883 and
lost millions in its collapse, shot him
self this morning at his home on Na
tional avenue, just outside of the city,
and wus found dead in the bath room
of his bis house at lli.lii o'clock. He
hud placed the muz.le of a revolver in
his mouth and fired. The bullet took
an upward course and penetrated the
brain.
Mcticoeh's domestic troubles un
doubtedly led him to take his life. It
was announced yesterday that his
wife was about to bring suit for di
vorce on the ground of incompatibili
ty of temper, and it is well known to
their acquaintances that their married
life had not been happy and they had
lived apart for some time.
Mctieoch was a man who had ex
perienced many reverses and gone un
daunted through trials that would
have broken down most men. but do
mestic scandal was more than heeould
hear and immediate cause of his sui
cide was no doubt the milking public
of the fact nf the impending divorce.
No man for years wus better known
on the Chicago and Milwaukee Boards
of trade than Peter Mctieoch. He was
a daring speculator up to the disas
trous lard deal of IrtS.'l, when he at
tempted to corner the lard of the
country and wus buried under the
loud. Daniel Wells, jr., of Milwaukee
wus interested in the deal, and a long
and acrimonious law suit followed.
After t he failure of the lard corner,
Mctieoch dropped nut of the specula
tion, and devoted Ins time to his
street railway lines up to I sO. when
he sold to a Pittsburg syndicate,
headed by Mr. liyan of Now York.
Since then he has devoted himself to
his various interests, which are of
considerable mugnit nde.
Mctieoch was married eight years
ugo to Mrs, Libby of Kenwood, a Chi
cago si: hurb. The two had not been
hapf-y for some tim.
