THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOURNAL--WEDNESD AY EVENING, JUNE 12, 1907.
7 BIG THUNDER STORM. I'misual Atmospheric Disturbances at Early Hour This Morning. " The first severe thunder storm of the season broke out in this city at a quarter to 3 o'clock this morning: and for the next hour the sky was a con tinuous glare of lightning: while the crash of the thunder rattled the dishes and shook the houses. This atmos pheric disturbance was accompanied by a downpour of rain whiie only measuring .31 of an inch came in sheets during the few moments when the storm was at its height. There was everv indication of the proximity of a tornado and the barom eter at the government station in the Columbian building bobbled about like a thing possessed. AVhen the storm was at its height the barometer fell fifteen-hundredths of an inch in as many minutes while between the hours of 4 and 5 the temperature rose from 63 to 79 and during the hour follow ing dropped back to 65. "There was every indication of a cy clone for awhile last night." said Mr. Flora, assistant at the weather bureau, "and the action of the barometer as well as the sudden changes in the tem peratures indicate unusuai atmos pheric conditions. The wind at no time attained a velocity greater than 2S miles an hour, but that was enough to blow the rain around considerably. The air was heavily charged with elec tricity and the storm between 3 and 4 o'clock from the electrical display point was a beautiful sight." "While the storm was not exactly lo cal It was of that nature and covered a portion of the northeastern corner of the state east from Riley county where the heaviest fall occurred, to Topeka and reached as far south as Osage county. The nature of the storm was about the same at all points included in this territory a light hail which did but little damage, falling at several points while the atmospheric conditions were highly disturbed and thunder and lightning prevailed. The sun has been shining since its first peep above the horizon this morn ing, just as though this section had not been visited with a soaking rain Just before daybreak, where all of the elements took a hand in the grand finale. The forecast for tonight and Thurs day is partly cloudy which indicates on unsettled condition of the weather over the state and showers may occur at any time and at any place in the area covered by the forecast which is fpr the entire state. The wind is blowing from the south at the rate of 10 miles an hour and the gauge which recorded last night's precipitation in dicates a fall of .31 of an inch. The temperatures for today were: 7 o'clock 6711 o'clock 83 8 o'clock 67(12 o'clock 8 9 o'clock 73! 1 o'clock 83 10 o'clock 69 2 o'clock 85 Manhattan, June 12. The heaviest storm of the season broke on this com munity shortly after midnight last hight and at 7 o'clock this morning the rain which is still falling amounted tt 2.92 of an inch which is by far the heaviest amount of precipitation re corded this spring. This is the second good rain within a week and the ground is in splendid condition for growing crops and the prospects for late crops were never better than at this time. The rain last night was ac companied by a high wind and a light hail storm though the damage done if any. will amount to little whn, com pared with the benefits to be derved from the soaking rain which fell. Osage City. June 12. This section was visited by a heavy electrical show er last night during which .68 of an Inch of rain fell accompanied by a light ran or nail wnicn aid no damage. The atmosphere was heavily charged with electricity and a high wind pre vailed during the downpour which lasted for about an hour. ALL WERE DROWNED. One Kansas Man Among Officers Lost In Hampton Roads. Washington. June 12. The loss at one time of six bright young midship men fresh from the academy at Annap olis, a young marine officer very re cently appointed, and a boatswain an-1 four enlisted men attached to the big battleship Minnesota, 12 men altogeth r. with the battleship's launch, as re ported to' the navy department, was one of the hardest mows tnat has rauen upon the personnel of the navy since the Spanish war. In the estimation of the officials. The navy department received a dis patch from Rear Admiral Evans, in command of the fleet at Hampton Roads, which says: "A ditty box belonging to the fire man of the Minnesota's missing launch has been picked up afloat near berth 27. and I am forced to conclude that the launch with all on board is lost. Have ordered board of investigation. Steamer last seen at exposition pier about midnight." Admiral Evans telegraphed that the five missing seamen are: R. H. Dodson. seaman: H. L. Van dern, ordinary seaman; F. R. Plumber, ordinary seaman; G. W. Westphal, fire man, first class; Jesse Conn, coal passer. Midshipman M. H. Holcomb. of the second class, was attached to the Con necticut, and took passage on the Min nesota's launch. He was a member of the second class, and was appointed it the Naval academy from Newcastle. Del. His father, Thomas Holcomb, is employed as a clerk in the comptroller's office at the treasury department. . Midshipman H'.nry C. Murfin, Jr., was a native of Ohio and a member of the second class at the Naval academy. Like the other, he had been sent aboard the battleship Minnesota for a sum me' course of instruction, to afford the prac tical education necessary to supple ment the theoretical work at the Naval academy. Philip H. Field was a midshipman from Colorado, who belonged to ths first class of the academy. Midshipman Walter C. I'lrich. of tha second class, was from Wisconsin. Midshipman W. H. Stevenson, of Cal ifornia, was a member of the second class, and Henry L. Holden, of Wis consin, was a member of the samo class. David M. Randall, second lieutenant of marines, was born in New Tork and appointed from Newton, Kansas, enter ing after a severe competitive exami nation March 10. 1905. The conclusion was reached at the navy department that either on account of the lateness of the hour of the re turn trip the Minnesota's launch in her haste had been driven hard Jnto the heavy sea that prevailed in Hampton Roads, or that the little boat had been run down by some of the giant tramn steamers that make use of the roads as a refuge in time of storm. How It Happened. Norfolk, Va., June 12. It was reported today that the disaster In Hampton Roads Monday night which resulted in the sinking of a launch from the battle hlp Minnesota and the drowning of 11 men. Including six midshipmen who were returning from the army and navy ball at the Jamestown exposition that night, and five seamen who made up the crew of the launch resulted from the Minnesota's launch being run down by a tug and coal barge which the tug was towing. The identity of the tug and barge are as yet unknown. It wa said that the tug stopped after the accident, but find ing no trace of the object struck, or any sign of life in the water, resumed its course with the coal barge in tow. The presumption is that the launch sank im mediately In the darkness of the stormy night, the 11 ocupants being caught in their canvas covered craft with no pos sible way of escape and carried to the bottom, drowning like rats in a trap. It was raining and the choppy seas were sending spray to such an extent that it became necessary for those In the launch to have the canvas covering buttoned tightly down from overhead to the sides of the little vessel. It is not yet positively known whether the tug and barge were outward or inward bound, or that the tug men knew what they had struck. The President Is Shocked. Baltimore. Md.. June 18.
