Little Bock, Oct l A terrible cyclone wept over the business portion of this city t T:N to-night Shortly after dark a heavy storm came from the west, ac companied by lightning and thunder. The sky was suddenly cleared and the storm was thought to be over when a heavy gale from the southwest ap peared, and for three minutes the city was In the throes of death and de struction. The wind was terrific. Trees and tele graph, telephone and electric light poles were uprooted and carried 200 yards. The roofs of about forty of the largest buildings In the city were torn off and hurled against other buildings on the other side of the street, leaving the occupants and property within, to the mercy of the rain which feU in torrents shortly afterwards. The residence por tion of the city entirely escaped, but Main street to Third, Markham street, from Center to Cumberland, and Second from Cumberland were totally wrecked. This territory covers the business por tion of the town. The Western Union of fice is located in the center of this district The building was wrecked be yond recognition. The operators, who were at work at their desks, had narrow escapes. Operator Culbert, in particu lar, who was at work only twelve feet from a large two-story brick building. escaped miraculously from instant death. The cyclone blew that building over on the Western Union building. The bricks and timbers came crashing through the. latter building, and Cul bert was badly wounded on the hip, He is at work to-night, however. None of the other operators were injured... At 11 o'clock a message was received from the insane asylum, situated , two miles from the city and the state peni tentiary. Just "west of the Union depot, calllne- for a corns of physicians and other .assistance. It Is reliably stated that a number .of patients at", the asy lum are fatally injured and great dam age waa dona to the biuldlngaw- - - Reports "from the penitentiary saj sis convicts, were badly injured - by falling timbers and two of them will die. i" Mayor Hall called out the entire fire and police departments. ......... Intense excitement prevails and all kinds of exaggerated reports are cur rent - The loss to property will amount to at least a million. The damage to the insane asylum is $100,000; to the peniten tiary $60,000. Memphis, Tenn., Oct. J. Prom all In dicatlons the cyclone which swept over Arkansas to-night has been serious in the amount of damage and the extent of territory covered, but only the most meagre reports can be obtained at this point The weather bureau here knows nothing, the wires having been swept away before reports were receivd from Tort Smith or Little Rock. It is not known that Fort Smith was struck by the storm, but there is no doubt that Little Rock is a serious loser. The Iron Mountain train dispatcher has been ad vised by the operateor of that road at Fine Bluff that the state penitentiary at Little Rook has been blown down, and at least one convict killed, and the residence portion of the city badly damaged. It is not apparent how the Pine Bluff operator could get this infor mation. The wire out of Little Rock went down at 7:30. Since then not a word has been heard. The cyclonio storm made its appearance in the ex treme northwest, moved southeast wardly and was reported this evening central over the Mississippi valley. The trough of the storm thus occasioned ex tended southward to the northern bor der, but there is no report of damage done in Texas. . ; ,, At 1 o'clock a storm of cyclonic pro portions struck Memphis accompanied by rain and heavy electrical demonstrations- '.'.-.,.'

Poll Mm. n Thomas Culeman Be'ol r Le.ow InrMtl gating commit.. 1 New York, Oct. 2. The Lexow (n- mlttee was called to order at 11 Qz, k and Mr. Oolt said that he propo to Introduce evidence' which was of j ut Importance, both .to the commute, ltd; citizens of New York. "The testlM ny will be considered in three lights,' suld Mr. Goff, "first with, regard tothe po llceman as a disturber, of" the peace, and a danger to the safety of the citi zens of this city. Secondly, that the police force Is above the ordinary laws of this state, and it will be shown that a policeman who commits a felonious offence may get off with a few days' fine and a reprimand from a poller court A policeman can brain a citizen with a club, and all the punishment he receives will be a small fine, whereas an ordinary citizen, If he committed the same offence, would be senf to Sing Sing, and, thirdly, that the perjury which has been committed by policemen during the recent trials at the head quarters is unmeasurable and unparal lelled, and In fact, as one of the com missioners put It, the air of the court room at police headquarters was blue with perjury. Lawyer Moss, of Parkhurst's society, testified as to the efforts made by the business men's association, of which he was counsel, to suppress the social evil in the "tenderloin" district. Captain Williams, who was in com mand of the district at the time, was brought to trial before the police board, and a tie vote two for. dismissal and two for acquittal was the result. At the same sitting Williams was promoted to the rank of Inspector. Mr.Moss also brought charges against Captains McLaughlin, and Carpenter for not suppressing gambling In their precincts. The result of the trial of Mc Laughlin on these charges was the same as that against Williams a tie vote. Captain Carpenter retired on a pension before the' trial. The cases against Williams and McLaughlin are still undisposed of. Policeman Thomas Coleman, who was sent to the hospital to take charge cf George Appo after the latter's throat was Cut last Sunday, testified that Appo told him that he had attempted suicide and had said he wished he were dead. Then Mr. Goff changed his examina tion and ( asked Coleman . how many times he had been convicted before the police board. He answered sixteen times; twice for clubbing. Mr. Goff then reviewed the charges that had been made against Coleman. Coleman was then excused and Mr. Moss then reviewed his story of the crusade of the society for the preven tion of crime against the social evil. Mr. Moss here produced a big volume of records of police irlalg at headquarters, which he -said he himself had pre pared. "It appears," said he, "that a ma jority of the officers on the force have had convictions recorded against them, and that In cases for which, if tried in criminal courts, the penalty would be heavy, the policeman was let off with a small line. There has been no serious punishment by captains previous to the appointment of this committee. There are now on the force ninety policemen who have been convicted since January, 1891, of assaulting citi zens in a brutal manner. Mr. Moss report showed that from January 1, 1891, to May, 1894, 'there had been 109 convlcions of police officers and that ninety-two of these officers are still on the force and sixteen have retired. The offences charged were op pression, neglect of. duty. Indecent ex posure, assault, burglary, attempted rape and similar charges. In addition to the 109 oases there were twenty-two cases of not such serious character. For instance, an officer was fined ten days' for carelessly handling his pistol and killing a citizen. Then there were two cases of tampering with register books on voting day. There were fifty six cases that were still pending, and Bixty-flve cases up to May 1. A num ber of witnesses then told of brutal clubbing by the police, most of them without cause. t Policeman Richard S. Meaney testi fied in regard to the complaint of the Columbia college students that they were assaulted and badly clubbed while "burning the legendre" on June 2. Meaney said he did not assault any students that night - He was Asked how many complaints there were against him since April 1. "I think there were five," he replied. "The record shows that since November 11, 1891, there have beeij-flfteen complaints against ! you, two of which only have been dis missed." . , . . : Witness admitted that he was .fined three days' pay for assaulting John Strahmeidel in his" own ' apartments. A number of policemen were called and testified as to trials and charges against them. Policeman' Thomas O'Neill ad mitted having been fined two days' pay for assaulting a citizen. The proceed ings were then adjourned. Had a Shock at Hi. Table. Norwich, Conn., Oct. 2.

In the in quest to-day into the alleged poisoning of Watson Peck and his two " sons, Charles and George, the preliminary lanaiysis on ine urgan ux vvu.tBun xeci I made bv Dr. Wood of Harvard 'Medi cal school, was submitted by Solicitor Hoyt at the session of the coroner's jury this afternoon. In the report Professor Wood says he examined about ohexlifth of the liver and found it contained, about a grain of arsenic. A liver ordi narily weighs about thret pounds, sf, that the whole liver contains about 4ft grains of arsenic. The body hadjiot beeta embalmed before burial. . . When the .autopsy was held on. the body of George Peck,' the last son to die, Dr. Bolton mad the report that he had found the same state of things in his stomach and also gave the' opinion of arsenical .poisoning. . Dr. J. F. Axtellel who attended both- Charles and George, has outlined the symptoms in those cases as Identical in every par ticular with those of the father. So the finding of Professor Wood that Watson Peck died of arsenical poisoning seems to establish that the two sons died of the same thing. ; ; The theory, based on evidence so, far secured, is that George, who-was' in clined to be wayword and who was; re garded as irresponsible mentally, ad ministered poison to his father on two occasions. Two weeks later he is be lieved to have made' a successful at tempt to take the life of Charles, his ten-year-old brother, who' died August 9. Inside of two weeks, and on the Sun-' day before George himself was stricken down, his mother was taken with the same symptoms that had been noted at the commencement of the Illness of te father and son. Prompt -medical aiLenaanuv oaveu uer liiev. . -v.. About two weeks afterward," when public attention had been called, to the .two deaths and Mrs. Peck's similar at' tack, George succumbed to the .same symptoms and died in the same man ner as his father and younger brother. It Is believed with perhaps the fear of exposure of the cause of .the death, of the two others, drove him to suicide. Gedrge is known to have had arsenic In his possession for use in taxidermy. Chester Peck; the youngest -member of the family, who was taken 111 About three weeks ago, died this morning, the' cause attributed being 'typhoid pneumonia.

Washington, Oct. 2. Whatever may be the outcome of the Indictments found Messrs. Havemeyer, Searles and company in connection with the senate sugar investigating committee some portions of the text of these documents will be likely to go down In history us among the most remarkable present ments ever made. Such, at least. Is the opinion of leading members of the dis trict bar, who scanned the full text to day with Interest and surprise. The opening paragraphs recite the terms of the sugar schedule of the Me Klnley act and conclude with the state ment that "Ihe several terms and pro visions aforesaid of said act were of great benefit and advantage to the In terests of a certain corporation called the American Sugar Refining com pany." The Indictments recite ihe methods of nominating and electing candidates, the work of the various campaign com mittees through which "the said dem ocratic party obtained control of con gress and of the power to enact laws of the United States." The grand Jury finds that on February 1, 1894, and for three years prior thereto the refining company had been extensively engaged In the buslnes of refining sugars, and that by reason of the act of 1890 had been able to fix the price of sugar for the higher grades and that Its stock became of a value largely in excess of Its par value, and so continued to be until certain legislation was proposed In the house of representatives which, if enacted into law, would destroy the ability of the corporation to control the product and greatly reduce the value of its stock. The Indictments re late to the passage of the tariff bill in the house, Its transmission to the senate and reference to the financial commit tee, and declares as the bill passed the house it would be to the disadvantage of the corporation and lessen Its profits and that its stock was greatly impaired in value for the time being. The indictments proceed to recite the report of the finance committee on March 20 and then refer to the democratic- caucus, the Jones amendments and the sugar schedule as finally agreed to; v.,. - - These peWGpa per articles that called .forth the senatorial investigation are Iquotediand particular attention is paid to those portions which charged that the sugar trust had made large campaign contributions. Liberal abstracts ,are taken from the testimony of the sugar trust officials and the answers, wherein they refused to submit their books, are given In full. The grand jury says in conclusion that "these matters were especially per tinent to so much of the inquiry as had for its object the ascertainment as a matter of fact whether the said amend ments to the tariff bill had been made by the refining company or whether they had been permitted to dictate the amendments in consideration of the large sums of money contributed by the company to the campaign committee of the democratic party to aid in the elec tion to the senate of members of that party." SOLir SMITH HISSED. Used Suspicious Tactic, in the Fight With Prank Erne. Buffalo, Oct. 2. The ten-round contest between Frank Erne, the local feather weight, and Solly Smith, the well known western pugilist, for a purse of $1,000, was the drawing card at the Buffalo Athletic club to-night. The place was crowded. As a prelude Patsy Haley of Buffalo and James Dever of Jackson, Mich., boxed eight rounds and put up a better, fight than did the featherweights. Haley received the decision. Smith and Erne appeared in the ring at 10:45, both looking well groomed. Smith weighed 119 and Erne 120. In the first and second rounds Smith got iji the hard blows." lift the third round Smith -ducked, caught Erne on his shoulder and threw him in the air. The "round was replete with, vicious rushes. In the next three rounds but little was done. Erne did the leading, but could not land.' In ' the seventh round Erne caught Smith a .terrible blOw on the jaw. Smith went down and appeared to be out, but rallied and in the clinch which followed both men landed on the out side of the ropes: Light blows were ex changed in t n e . eights' ' round. In the ninth and tenth rounds Smith landed Beveral hard blows. He had Erne well in hand when the gong sounded at the end of the tenth round. The referee declared the fight a draw. Erne was fouled during the fight. Smith was guilty of using suspicious tactics and was hissed from all parts of the house. . '' CHANG'S rOWSK NOT WANING.
