Lownow, Nov., 11.-Last night a heavy
gale set in to the south of Englaud and
Ireland, and already dispatches have been
received telling of wrecks caused by thb
storm. From Hrthe, on the English chan
nel, comes the report of the wreck of an
English schooner. The crew got ashore
safely buit the captain, his wife and son
perished. At Sind Gate the ship Benvene
was wrecked. Her crew took to the rig
, ging, and an attempt was made by the life
savers to rescue them, but the sea was too
Shigh,. Another vessel is reported ashore
close to where the Benvenu lies. Later re
1 ports from Sand Gate say that all hope of
d saving the crew of the Benvenu have
been abandoned. The bodies of sev
eral " victims have been cast ~apon
the beach. A body of troops had been
sent to aid life savers along the Band Gate
section of the coast in their efforts to
render assistance to distressed vessels and
a their crews. A telegram has been received
a from Soilly island, stating that a schooner
a had been. wrecked there, though the crew
was saved. The vessel Paramount was
e sunk off Lowbstoft, in Suffolk, all hands on
board except two sailors being drowned. In
London the storm did considerable damage
to buildings in course of erection. A dim
s patch has been received 'from St. Leonards,
a the well known watering place in Susiex,
I announcing that the bark Amor had
a stranded near that town. Her crew took
to the rigging. The only hope for the
t wrecked sailors is that the storm may sub.
side before they die of cold. Interruption
of telegraph service is general throughout
southwest England.
A dispatch from Sand Gate this evening
says the life boat crew made another stren
uous, but fruitless, effort to reach the Ben
venu. Some of the crew, exhausted by
their long exposure, became so weakened
that they found is impossible to longer
cling to the rigging' and dropped into the
waters and soon sgnk from sight. Others
were still in the rigging. Thousands of
people gathered along the shore sympa.
thetioai watching every attempt to save
the lives of the shipwrecked sailors. The
storm caused considerable damage through
out tbh southern counties of England and
Irelanid. Rain fell in large quantities. The
fishing boatlStar of the East while entering
port crashed against a pier and was
wrecked, six of the crew being drowned.
Reports of many other shipwrecks are
coming in.
It is believed the storm has spent its
force and that when the final estimate of
damages is made it will be found that the
loss is much greater than that incurred
through any storm that has prevailed for
years. Reports from the gale-swept dis
tricts are very slow coming in. but those
thus far received show that the damage
must be widespread and very heavy. The
damage to property at Folkestone and Deal
is very great. The roofs of houses were
blown off and the streets strewn with
slates and tiles. At Christ Church the riv
ers were swollen by the excessively heavy
rains which accompanied the gale. They
have overflowed their banks, flooding the
country and part of the town. Farmers in
midland cbunties are growing discouraged
at the misfortunes pursuing them. In
these counties previqus gales and floods
did an immense amount of damage. In
some sections water was just subsiding and
farmers had began to look forward to
plowing and preparing land for autumn
sowing. Now the waters have again sub
merged the land.. The rivers are rapidly
rising and it is feared there will be a gen
eral repetition of the floods.
Part of the life saving crew at
Hythe, while engaged in rescuing a ship
wrecked crew, were swept from. their boat
and drowned. From Dungeness. too, comes
,a story of the loss of some brave lifeboat.
men. A foreign bark went ashore at that
place and the lifeboatmen started gallantly
to the rescue. A tremendously heavy sea
was running and the lifeboat caneized and
all hands went overboard. Five of the crew
were swept away before they could grasp
life lines and although they wore cork
jackets they were lost. The other men
succeeded in righting their boat and
scrambling in. Several vessels are ashore
between Dungeness and Dover, and it is
feared they will go to pieces and the crew
perish before assistance can get to them.
A number of vessels in distress have been
driven past Sand Gate. It was impossible
to do anything to relieve them on account
of the tremendous heavy seas.
Part of the roof of the Ludgate hill sta
tion, in London, has been blown off. A
dispatch.from Loweston announces that a
bcotoh lugger capsized off that port to-day,
and ix of the crew were drowned. Un
known vessels are reported wrecked at
many points. Great anxi ty prevails on the
enast and south coast as to the fate of hun
dreds of fishins boats whieh put to seayes
terday, lured by the fine weather then pre
Flntlly Ifesened.
LonON, Nov. 11.-A later dispatch says
the life savers at Seabrook made another
desperate effort to get out to the Benevenu
this afternoon, and afiter a tremendous
struggle succeeded in getting a line to the
ship. The work of taking half dead men
from the rigging was begun, and twenty
seven of the oflicers and crew
were safely gotten into the boats.
Then came another terrible struggle to
reach shore, the boat finally bringing up at
Fulkestone, where the survivors of the
wreck were tenderly cared for. The cap
tain and four of the crew were drowned be
fore the life savers reached the vessel.

Rio that the state of BRio Grande do BSl had
seceded. In the absenoe of any contradic
tory statement from his government the
mminister believes the province has revolted.

d was any chance of the revolt extending to
other states; that the government was as
stable as ours and there peed be no fear of
Sa uoneral revolution. The tlisaffection in

of the dissolved' congress representing that

a there is really nothing to cause revolution.
News from Brazil is awaited with great in
terest. Dispatches reporting the revolt of
the important rrovinces of Rio Grande do
SSul and Grao P4ra have. prepared those who
f are watching the progress of
events in Brazil for further reports
of disintegration. Some Brazilian
news appears to be getting across the An

Called Gladstone a Fanatic.
e Lolfiox, Nov. 11.-At the conference of
the Liberal-Unionists association at Man
chester. Sir Henry James presided. Sir
Henry was the attorney general during
Gladstone's last administration, but he
was and is opposed to Gladstone's schemes
for the establishment of home role for Ire
Sland. In hisapeech at the opening of the
meeting, Sir Henry claimeid that the recent
I experiences in Ireland (referring to the
serious factional fight of last week) had
proved that the policy of the liberal-union
Sits was the only correct one. A letter
from Joe. Chamberlain was read. He said
that Gladstonians had lost confidence in
the home rule movement, and were trying
to pass a bill to establish home rule, sand
wiched between more alluring proposals.
The duke of Argyle, in speaking of the
motion to support the general policy of the
Sgovernment, described Gladstone as a
"fanatic who is incapable of argument."
His followers, according to the duke, were
mere puppets.

Lepers Over the Line.
VANcouvra. B.'C., Nov. 11.-The lepers
are now at large, as neither the governmbnt

TOLEDo, O., Nov. 11.-The Knights of La
bor convention to-day settled the contested
case of district assembly No. 135, by restor
ing eighteen local assemblies to good stand
ing, and seating all five delegates. Among
the amendments to the constitution adopted
was one to the twelfth article, as follows,
"and all children over the age of seven and
under 15 be compelled to attend some in
stitution of learning at least ten months of
the year, or such part of the year as may be
offered them." The question of the expul
sion of a member from the order
for publicly attacking the charac
ter and standing of another member
was settled by giving the general executive
board full authority to act. An amend
ment intended to place the selection of the
general executive board in the hands of the
general assembly, instead of the general
master workman, was defeated, another
Svictory for Powdsrly. In his annual ad

Government Itallroadlug Would Be, in the
Opluioun of a Congressman.
SEDALTA, MO., Nov. 11.-The National
Farmers' oongress reassembled at eleven
o'clock this morning. A number of reso
lutions were introduced and referred.
Congressman Head, of Misiisaippi, deliv.
ered ann address on railway transportation.
This spbject, he declared, was of supreme
importance to the farmers and that the one
solution of this vexed question was to be
found in the state railway commission,
Another method of controling the railroad
corporations in the interest of the people
was through the national commission.
Some of the members professed to be
lieve that the railroade should all be placed
under goverlnment management. Govern
ument railroading, Head believed, would be
a gigantic failure, as in the tilrt place the
government would havu .to buy tho rail
roads, and that would cost $1,000,000,000.
That would be an impossibility, practically,
because there is in ciroulation only $1,500,
000,000. Tihe purchase of the railroads
would necessitate the incurring of a debt
of giganttio.proportiouise, and hlie did not be.
lieve that 'the farmers, or any one OIse,
wanted to o dlown into their pookets and
pay any mote debt than they were now pay
Ani. Another great objection to the gov
ornment controlingr the railwanys would be
the inerease of the federni oflice holders.
Ii. Brown, of Georoii, endorsed ovorything
Head had said. Martin MBIohler, securetary
of the Kansas state board of agriculture,
read a paper on "The race under condition
of high civilration."
Among the resolutions were, thie follow
lig: Urging congress to cede arid lands to
the various states and to provide the states
with systems of irrigation; recomumending
that the presidsnt and vice-president of the
United States and Uniteu States senaators
be eleted by direct vote of the people; de
m·ndlnag the extension of the signnl servioe
reportsl- equmlsing the federal government
to aid s~ates in the irrigation of arid lands.
The resolbtlone were all adopted except the
lutttr which the congress struck from the
rer by a vote of forty-four to seventeen.
The committee on finance presented a re
port requestlpg state legislatures to
nake approprltiot for the expenditures
of state delegations to future oongresses of
this character, in order that each state may
have proper representation. The report
was adoptel.
At the afternoon seeeion more resolutions
of thanks to Seeretary Bask for his work
for the farmers were adopted. The com
mittee recommended the adoption of reso
lations pledging the organization to main
taln a non-partisan character; demanding
the peasage of laws distributing the burden
of taxation on all classes equall; deelaring
that the public domain should be reserved
for settlement of United States; cit.
izens to the exclusion of , for
eigners; declaring that national taxation
should be limited to the laws of the gov
ernment econominally and honestly admin
satered, requesting the secretary of agri
culture to increase the number of agents
abroad to push the work of introducing
corn as food: demanding improvement by
the federal government of water ways and
harbors of the United States, requesting
free delivery of mail among farmers, and
demanding control of all trusts, combl sa
tions and monopolies so they shall work no
harm to the people.

Edgerton, who ably set forth the
necessity of teaching current events in the

Stebbins followed with an interesting paper
