Electrical Disturbance
and a Green Atmosphere.
Lacrosse, Wis., Oct. 11.— Further details
of the terrific cyclone which struck the town
of Arcadia, in Trempealeau county,on Mon
day ulght, show that it came from the
southwest, and that upon its approach the
air was so charged with electricity that
lights could not bo made to burn, and
people rushed to their cellars In tbe dark
ness to avoid the danger. The atmos
phere was of a peculiar reddish-green color,
with a strong sulphuric odor, and the deaf
ening roar of the tornado is utterly indes
cribable. Barns and outbuildings were
lifted from their foundations, torn to frag
ments and scattered In all directions.
Broken boards, trees, bricks and stones
filled the air, and were hurled with such vio
lence in some instances as to drive them
through the sides of buildings.
Among the losers are Patrick Manning
and a farmer named Olsen, who lost every
thirg, including their houses, barns and
outbuildings. John Bingham lost his gran
ary, barn and contents, 100 tons of hay,
four horses and some blooded stock. John
Robertson's house, barn and outbuildings
were destroyed. James Gaveny lost an orch
ard valued at $5,000. Senator Comstock's
new sornhum mill was destroyed and his
barn wrecked. There
varying from $1000 to $1,000 each.
Bessy and Miss Piper,who were most in
jured, are considered out of danger. The
clone seems to have spent ita force up North
Creek Valley, doing considerable damage to
properly, but causing ltolo'S of life.

Church, last evening at the the church,
Market street above Ninth. Mr. N. B. Cul
bert, chairman of the committee of arrange
ments, proved to be the right man in the
right place, and the whole affair was very
enjoyable. The platform-front was decr
rated in a tasteful manner. About 8 o'clock
Dr. Nixon opened the exercises with prayer,
after which a hymn called "Welcome" was
sang by the choir. Rev. A. N. Keigwln
delivered the welcoming address, which was

DuVal came forward to respond, looking
hale and.cheerful.
He began by saying that he was pro
foundly thankful for this mark of friend
ship and esteem. He 6 aid that much was
to be learned and said of books and became
to the concldsion last spring that he needed
some of this knowledge. After making ar
rangements with a number of ministers of
Princeton College to fill his place during bis
abscence, he Informed tho Trustees of his

about four months,and they very kindly con

speaker and described in a brief manner his

beauty and grandeur of the scenery was re
ferred to, with a promise that sometime
soon he would tell about It. He told how
he found a brother away out in one of the
Territories, among the mines. The meeting
was unexpected by tho western brother
miner, and when they came together the
meet,lug was very affectionate.
He remained in San Jose Va)ley|about
three months and was mnch pleased with
the place. He spoke of preaching in a large
church, with a large congregation, excellent
6 iug 1 ng and the large number of young per
sona who attended church on the Sabbath
and evening prayer meetings. On the fourth
day of July he was appointed chaplain of a
meeting held on that day, having been
waited on by a committee of ladies
who would accept of no excuse. He told of
engaging an outside seat on a stage, some
160 miles from San Francisco, by telegraph,
anil when be was presented with a tick
for $45.00 he felt like becoming discouraged
as he would have to cat down his grub bill.
He visited Oregon and the Pacific coast, and
not pleased with it. He related many
amusing incidents. Altogether he traveled
some 10,000 miles by rail and by coach with
out an accident, except on his return home
at Chester, where the train
lumber on the track, giving him only a little
shake.
Mr. DuVsl concluded by formally tbank
iDg the congregation for their klud recep

Notes or the Game*.
Yesterday was a good day generally for
base ball and a number of contests took
place between League and American Asso

small scores, it can be set down as decided
that the October games have settled the su
periority of the League clubs over the
American Association clubs, with the ex
ception possibly of tbe Metropolitans and
Cincinnatis. The Athletic^ luck having
deserted them they are losing games with
unvarying regularity. The luck of this
club has been wonderful. If the manage

A POLITICAL MURDER.
FATAL FIGHT BETWEEN POLI
TICIANS.
BESULT OF PARTISAN JEALOUSY
A Row in the Streets of Baltimore That
Would Do Credit to a City In tho Far
Southwest—A Bystander Wounded.
Baltimore, Md., Oct. 11— James F.
Busey, a well-known Democratic politician,
was shot and mortally wouuded in iront of
tho City Hall to-day. The man who shot
was William T. Hörig, a Fiiteeuth ward
rounder.
The shooting was peculiarly tragic, and
the affair has caused more excitement here
than any event since the Tivoli disaster last
summer. Busey is the superintendent of
streets for tbe Western district, having al
most constantly been in office for the last 10
years. He visited tbe City Hall this morn
ing lor the purpose of submitting his report
as a district superintendent to Commissioner
Barte E. Smith, head of the City Street
Cleaning Department Busey, while In the
office, chatted pleasantly, and seemed to be
in tbe liest of humor. There was lo excite
ment of manner about him, and after a
few moments of quiet conversation he left
the office.
When he reached the North street
pave
ment he met several Democratic friends,and
began talking over the sheriffalty primaries
of the day previous. Busey had been work
ing for Joyce, who had* been successful.
Among those in the crowd was Washington
Tbater, a South Baltimore heeler, who had
been opposed to Joyce. Pusey and Tbater
began to quarrel, when Harlg stepped up
and mingled in tho dispute. The discussion
became spirited, when a blow was struck by
one of the parties.
Busey and Uarig, at the fame instant,
drew pistols and began firing on each other
in rapid succession. There was a large
crowd in the neighborhood at the time and
Ihe fusilade was so fierce that that Bo one
dared to approach the combatants to sepa
rate them. Busey seemed to fire wildly, as
none of his ballt took effect on his antago
nist. He himself, however, was struck and
began retreating across^ North street,
towards the old No. 4 engine house, Harig
following closely, firing his revolver until
the chambers were all emptied.
BEATINO HIB DYING VICTIM.
He then seized Busey by the lappel of his
coat with his left hand, and began beating
him on the head with the butt of his
weapon. In the meantime Busey was I old
ing him with both hands by the lappel of
his coat. About this time one ot tbe by
standers ran up and,seizing Harig,wrenched
the pistol from ids hand. The noise of the
shooting and the screams of several ladies
who were passing at the time attract cd the
attention of Captain John Lannan, of the
Central Station, and Detective Mark Logan,
who, hastening to the scene, arrested Harig
and took him to the Centra) Station, where
he was at once locked up. Previous to this
he remarked that he had a pistol and in
tended to protect himself.
Busey was also taken to the station house
and it was found he had been hit four times
—once in the abdomen, once in the left side,
and twice in the left arm. ~
The wound in
tbe abdomen is likely to prove fatal. Al
though Busey Is believed by his followers to
possess a charme 1 life, the last rites of tbe
Catholic Church were administered to him
soon alter the shooting.
There has been a long feud between these
men, which originated in a political quarrel
some 10 or 12 years ago, ami was further iu
tensifled by the election of William F. Mc
Kewen as clerk of tho Criminal Court in
1879. Busey was an active partisan ol Mc
Kcwen, having been one of his most bitter
opponents. The usual charges of crooked
work were made by Harig, the champion of
the defeated candidates. Accusations and
recriminations followed thick and fast, and
the two men, enemies for years, fell to
hating each other with g. eater malice than
ever.
Harig was a fireman in tbe City Hall until
a few mouths ago. The police record shows
that Busey has been arrested over 50 times
within the last 19 years for assaults upon
inoffensive persons upon the streets and at
the polls. The Criminal Court records rhow
that he was uever punished but once, and
then with a $10 fine.
Busey is the brother of Billy Carroll, the
prise fighter, who once had a mill with Sam
Collier. Carroll changed his name from
Busey when his mother married the second
time. Busey is related by this marriage to
Judge Carroll, of the Orphans' Court.
ACCIDENTALLY DROWNED.
A Young Man Under the Influence of

Before Assistance Can be Procured.
As stated in yesterday s Gazette Coroner
Smith in answer to a summons from Dela
ware City went to that place yesterday
companled by Dr. Ogle and Undertaker
Palmer and held an inquest upon the body
of the drowned man Thomas McKecfrcy, en
gineer of a Philadelphia tug lying at that
port. A Coroner's jury was empaneled who
returned a verdict of accidental drowning.
The deceased
ac
a young man between 30
and 35 years of age, and the tug upon which
he was employ d belonged to his father. Ou
Wednesday night he went out and drank
S uite heavily, becoming so much intoxicated
iat the proprietor of the hotel ref used him
any more liquor. He left about 11 o'clock,
and between that and midnight a woman
who was on board another boat near by
heard a splash and a gurgling sound, as of
someone struggling in the water, and gave
an alarm. A search was Instituted, but all
was quiet, and it was supposed that the
alarm was false until tho other hands of the
tugboat returned about 12.30 o'clock, wheu
it was discovered that young McKeefrey was
board and a search was instituted.
It was concluded that he fell overboard
while trying to get aboard and was drowned,
and early yesterday morning thc body was
recovered by grappling irons. The body was
taken to Philadelphia.
