Windows Broken and Much Other Damage Done. Street Car Animals Made Frantic by the Hail, and Passengers Panic-Stricken —The Southern Floods. Associated Press Dispatches. I Washington, April 27.—The Signal Office furnishes the following report from the signal service observer at Bal timore: The heaviest hailstorm on record at this station passed over Balti more from northwest to southeast be tween 3:45 and 4 p.m. today. Many thousands of windows in the city were broken, the damage being confined mainly to western exposure. Many runaways are reported. Some horses and carriages were abandoned in the streets, their owners leaving them to seek shelter. It is probable that num bers of people were injured, as the stones were very large, some measuring more than two inches in diameter and weighing more than four ounces each. The extent of the damage has not yet been ascertained, but must be very great. . A very heavy rain fell with the hail, eighty-hnndredths of an inch fall ing between 3:45 and 4 p.m. Many of the car tracks at the foot of the hills are covered to a depth of six inches with soil washed down upon them. The wind at 3:55 attained a velocity of thirty miles per hour, rapidly decreasing after the passage of the storm. The hail went through thick panes of glass as though they were tissue paper, and the amount of the damage will run up into thousands. Some of the hail stones were ragged and as sharp on the edges as a steel blade. Hen's eggs were nothing to them in si/c ; many of them were as large as a man's fist. The storm came from the west and was local in its character, and swept to the east with a rattle like heavy musketry, frightening people out of their wits and hitting those who were on the streets, giving many of them hard knocks and driving them into places of shelter. There was a per fect Niagara of water, with hailstones— or rather chunks of ice—weighing some of them a quarter of a pound. In al most an instant the streets were rivers, tlie pavements were Hooded from two to three inches deep, and the man who remained in the street was almost in danger of losing his life. The hail drove horses wild. Those that pull street cars became uncon trollable, and the drivers were com pelled to let them have their own way. The people in the cars became panic stricken, and many of them crouched trembling on the floor of the cars, pray ing for rescue from the elements, while the drivers dodged the aerial missiles as best they could. All over the city the damage was heavy. On Charies street the windows looked as if they had been on a battle field. In the annex the rain, wind and hail did even more severe damage than in the city. Walls were swept down, houees unroofed, glass smashed and other damage done. THE TEXAS DELUGE. Greatest Flood Known in the History of the Country. Dallas, Tex., April 27. —The most destructive flood ever known in the history of North Texas is now passing through the Trinity. The great rain raised every tributary of it far out of its banks. Yesterday and last night it rose rapidly, and this morning passed the highest water mark in fifty years. In front of this city it is two miles wide, extending to the foot of Flanders heights west, and to Oak cliff, south of the city. On the north all the residences from a hundred yards beyond Cochran street, are submerged, some to the second floor, and others to the attic. No one has been reported drowned. All night and all day, today, tbe people have been moving to the higher ground. The back water extends far upon the north side of the city, whilst on the south houses are submerged as far up as Ward street. North, south and in front of the city there is one vast ocean of water about forty feet deep, and at this hour it is still rising, and will continue to rise until at least Tuesday. Trains on all the railroads are not running west, I north or south of the city today. Wash oats are reported all along the lines, but j the worst are immediately around the city. Tonight the crest of the waves lacks six feet of the flooring of the bridges in the city, but the Santa Fe and Central below town are submerged. News from the surrounding country is bad. Most of the small bridges have been destroyed by the deluge. The destruction of crops will amount to little, for as soon as the water goes down they will grow again. Friday's storm extended from Indian Territory to the Gulf, and from Marshall to Abilene. There was not a stream that was not raised high above its high water mark. At many points there were hurricanes and one cyclone. Many houses were blown down." So far, only one life has been reported lost. CRUMBLING LEVEES. Crevasses on the Lower Mississippi Widening and Matters Growing Worse. Bayou Sara, La., April 27. —The steamer Stella Wild has brought down a number of refugees from New Texas. The break at Morganza is widening fast, and yesterday's storm made matters worse. The Fanny Rich crevasse con tinues to widen, as well as those at the Taylor and Preston places, and it is only a question of a few days when there will be an unbroken sheet of water from these points to far above Raccourci. McCann's Story Is False. New York, April 27. —The World prints a cablegram from Richard Croker, in which he says McCann's story is false; that he would not believe him under oath, and that he is a blackmailer. LOS ANGELES HERALD. STUDENTS OF THE OCCULT. Convention or the. Disciples of Madame Itlavatsky at Chicago. Chicago, April 27. —The fourth annual convention of the American section of the Theosophical Society was held here today. Bertram Keiglitly of London, was present, as the bearer of a message from Madame Blavatsky, the ruling spirit of the organization. He read a lengthy address from the Council of the British section, and fraternal communi cations from branches in various Euro pean countries. Madame Blavatsky's communication warned members against the results of the present germinating of many of the latest physhic and occult powers into such forms as Christian science, mind cure. etc. "Understand atonce for all," said she, "that there is nothing spirit ual or divine in any of these manifestations. The healer interferes consciously or unconsciously with the free mental action of the per son he treats, and this is blank magic. The general secretary's report said the visit to Japan by Olcott, one of the founders of the organization, has been of momentous importance to the Bud dhist church. Tlie repart recommends the suspension of all forms of initiation. "The existing ones," the report said, "while commonly symbolic, merely con fuse the signs and words by which mem bership can be approved." The objec tions were that the society was not a secret body, but merely an organization of students and philanthropists. The present system of grips and passwords arouses, in many countries, disgust and antagonism. At the evening session papers were read by Dr. Jerome C. Anderson, of San Francisco, and others. John J. O'Brien Dead. New York, April 27.—John J.O'Brien, the Republican leader of the Eighth Assembly District, died this morning at Coney island. FIFTY-FIRST CONGRESS. OUTLINE OF THE WORK TO BE DIS POSED OF THIS WEEK. The Senate to Vote on the Land Grant Forfeiture Bill Today—Silver to Have Early Consideration in Both Houses. Washington, April 27. —The Senate to morrow will resume consideration of the Land Grant Forfeiture bill, with the ex pectation of coming to a vote before ad journment. After that the Customs Administrative bill will probably fill out the remainder of the week. There is considerable opposition on the Demo cratic side to the measure, and Evarts has an amendment to propose. The Silver bill will be taken up this week, if any time remains. Although the Republican caucus of the Senate has not agreed upon the details of a silver bill, it is believed a measure will be prepared for the consideration of the ■Senate \>y the time that body is ready to entertain it. The House. The failure of the House to pass the Legislative Appropriation bill Saturday, leaves it to come up tomorrow as unfin ished business. The previous question has been ordered. The present intention is to pass the Silver bill, and it will probably be called up on a resolution to be reported by the committee on rules, allowing two days for its discussion. The pension committee is to be given a day, and the committee on public buildings is to have the same privilege in order to dispose of bills reported. The Diplomatic Appropriation bill will prob ably be passed without discussion. No time has yet been allotted the River and Harbor bill, but as a large number of the members desire tbe measure passed before the Tariff bill comes up, they may be able to have it considered during the week. VOTED TO STRIKE. One Thousand Packing House Employees Threaten to Go Out May Ist. Chicago, April 27. —Fully one thou sand packing house men by unanimous vote decided this afternoon to go out on a strike Thursday, unless their request for eight hours a day was complied with. President O'Neill, of the Packing Labor ers' Union, presided at the meeting. One of the speakers, John McCullough, said the packers owned the laborers body and soul since the last strike, and now when an effort was being made to shake off the coils that bound them, they should take advantage of the oppor tunity. This time there would be no Pinkertons to intimidate or murder. Lawyer Richman assured the men from whom money forfeits against a strike had been enacted by different establish ments, that they would not lose one cent of the forfeits by a strike. President O'Neill in an interview tonight said the men had an organiza tion of four thousand members, and were being backed by the Chicago Per sonal Rights League, and the Federation of Labor.

J., April 27.—Cashier Soer, chief clerk of the money-order de partment in the Newark postoffice, has surrendered himself as a defaulter in the sum of $6,000; His peculations date back only to August last. MONDAY MORNING, APRIL 28, 1890. TARIFF REVISION. The McKinley Bill Will Be Passed. Tlie Congressional Pulse on the Measure. Members Interviewed as to How They Will Vote. The Republicans Will Stand by It Almost to a Man—The Democrats Helpless in the Premises. Associated Press Dispatches. I Philadelphia, April 27. —The Press tomorrow publishes the most complete and careful poll of the majority in Con gress ever made by a newspaper. The purpose was to ascertain tbe views of the individual members as to the necessity of passing a tariff revision and reduc tion bill as speedily as possible. Inter views were had with 209 Senators and Representatives. The Press interviewers found what op position exists to McKinley's bill on the Republican side of the House, and, by extending the interviews to the Demo crats, found the particular line of attack upon the bill likely to be adopted by the opposition. The fact of supreme importance is that a bill revising the tariff and reducing the revenue will be enacted before Con gress adjourns for tho summer. The Press interviewed 159 Republi cans, and with two exceptions they all agree that the Republican tariff bill will be passed, and while differences exist as to many of the schedules, the entire party is in accord on the general principle and purpose of the McKinley bill. The interviews show a strong senti ment on the part of the Republicans in favor of the bill, even if some of its fea tures are not wholly in accord with their individual opinions of the measure. Although each was called upon to ex press his views, there is a singular dearth of strong criticism on the part of the Democrats. In a general way the Democrats protest against the bill with out going into particulars. They admit the probability oi its passing, but they are evidently displeased with a measure which offers the masses of the people free sugar on the one band and the farmers of the country additional protection on important articles which they produce, on the other band. The result is summarized as follows : Total number interviewed, 209. Total number of Republicans interviewed, 159. Number of Republicans who believe that the bill for the revision of the tariff and reducing the revenue must be passed before this Congress adjourns, twenty. Number now ready to vote for the McKinley bill as it stands, 141. Number who believe the McKinley bill is sure to be satisfactory to the party and country by amendments, if passed, 118. Number who are not sure about it, 7. YOU MUST HAVE A "FAD." The Memory Hoop Has the Attention of the Gothamites at Present. If you stand for all you should in your service to the present age you must have a "fad." It doesn't make much differ ence what it is—it may be fond or foolish or profound, Ibsen or violets, but some thing exclusive and all your own it must be, and you must cherish it as you do your own personality. If you have any ingenuity,think out your own "fad"—the more pains the thinking of it costs you,the more successful it is likely to. be. If you haven't the requisite amount of in genuity, find somebody who has, if you can, and get him to furnish you with one. If that isn't possible, then you will have to adopt one of the lesser "fads" that belong in common to the world of | young women. Chief among these at present is the memory hoop, which per haps will suit you as well as anything. To begin the memory hoop, you must first have a hoop made of some polished wood about as big as a barrel. Then you must get each of your girl friends to give you a piece of her favorite colored rib bon with her initials worked thereon. These bits of ribbons you wind round, round the hoop until the wood is en tirely covered. Then have the hoop suspended horizontally over your dress ing table or .your reading chair, and now the real work in connection with the memory hoop begins. Each one of your men friends must be Bailed upon to con tribute an old-fashwhed copper two cent piece. It may put him to a deal of trouble, but a man won't mind a little trouble surely, if it is reasonably certain to result in his being perpetuated within the magic circle of the memory hoop. So when he has secured the copper two cent piece, he must have his initials en graved on one side with the date, and a line of poetry on the other. Then the polished disk is suspended from the hoop by a bit of ribbon of the color of the dress you happen to have on when the copper is given to you. Now the real sentimental utility of the memory hoop reveals itself. When any one of the coppers grows dim and tarnished it doesn't mean in this case, as it ordinarily would, that the chem istry of the air is at work—it hath a far deeper meaning than this, and goeth on to signify that the giver is in some "peculiar circumstances of trial or dis tress," as the prayer book or some other equally good authority has it, and that you must write to him at once and offer him as appropriate consolation as you can, not quite knowing ' whether his distress comes from having backed the wrong horse at the races, or because the girl he loves has broken her engagement with him. But do the best you can, and he will be comforted and you will be canon ized, and the ration d'etre of the memory hoop will be established, between you two at any rate, beyond the suspicion of a doubt.—[New York Sun. Marine Intelligence. New York, April 27.—Arrived: Egyp tian Monarch, London; City of Rich mond, and City of Rome, Liverpool. Queenstown, April 27.—Arrived: Ser via, from New York. THE FLORIDIANS' KICK. They Resent President Harrison's Re flections on Their State. Jacksonville. Fla., April 27. —Editor Hawthorne, of the Times-Union, pub lishes an open letter to President Har rison, stating that the people of Florida regard the President's letter to the At torney-General with surprise and a deep sense of injury. They are convinced that the statements it contains must have been based upon misinformation as to the actual state of affairs in the counties named. Hawthorne proceeds to cast discredit upon the reports by charging that District Judge Swaine boasted that the policy of his couit would be the persecution of Democrats. The letter also asserts that the jury Commissioner flagrantly discriminates against Democrats, and that wholesale indictments against Demociats for po litical offenses were found on the most unreliable testimony.

The Metropoli tan baseball nine were to have played the Senators, and 000 people paid admis sion. The Senators failed to appear. The Metropolitans offered to play a picked nine, but the offer did not please the crowd, who shouted for the return of their ad mission money.

Aii Attempt to Muzzle the Press in Brazil. The Provisional Government Realizes Its Mistake. Newspapers Forced Out of Business by Restrictive Decrees. Part of the Restrictions Finally Removed. Rumors Still Rife of Impending Trouble. Associated Press Dispatches. 1 Rio de Jeneiro, March 31. —The Government has at last taken official notice of the false reports and alarming rumors which have been frequently cir culated, and Marshal Fonseca has issued a lengthy decree regarding these re ports, which be says are highly injuri ous to the foreign credit of Brazil, be sides being intended to create alarm and panic at home. The decree declares all persons who originate or aid in circulat ing such reports subject to the decree of December 23d last, which provides that they be guilty of military sedition. From this provision is excluded written or verbal criticism of Government acts for the purpose of exposing, correcting and preventing administrative errors, pro vided it be free from personalities and defamation. When the decree of December 23d was issued the editor of the Tribune, (the organ of the last monarchial ministry), discontinued the publication of that paper, alleging that the decree was de structive of the freedom of the press. Other papers, already guarded in tone, became more so, and the discussion of political matters was almost confined to private circles. In these, however, it became more and more lively, causing no little annoyance to the ministers and their friends. Then there arose a feeling favorable to the freedom of the press, and shortly after two members of the ministry gave an open expression to this feeling. In the latter part of February, the official paper published a declaration of the provisional Government, that the decree of December 23d was not intended to restrict the liberty of the press. Since then the tone of the press has become much bolder, and some very violent arti cles against the Government have been published. Rumors of all kinds have continued to circulate and some of them have found their way into the prees. Dr. Pedro Tavores, the editor of a paper at Campos, was arrested yesterday for publishing articles against the Government, but was afterwards released. Tavores is an original Republican. When the republic was first proclaimed, he was appointed Governor of Maranham, but resigned shortly after because the Government annulled his decree sep arating church and state. He then es tablished an opposition paper. One notable article published in a San Paulo paper, by ex-Minister of the Interior Lobo, says, in part: "Let them say what they please, there must exist, enveloped in the cloud of mystery which the provisional Government has not been able to penetrate, an element that is conspiring against our present in stitutions and against the future of the republic. There is something singular in the reports which from time to time spring into circulation, and which are becoming more and more fre quent. They originate simultaneously at distant points, and spread over the country as if conveyed by a network of wires. The celebrated and lamentable insurrection of the soldiers was pre viously announced at different places. The provisional Government could per ceive that some hidden hand was touch ing the springs of'a plot against it, but this hand it was never able to discover." FRENCH AFFAIRS. Quiet Municipal Elections—The King of Dahamey's Complaint, Etc. Paris, April 27. —The municipal elec tions today passed off quietly. In the suburbs the police destroyed a number of Orleanist and Boulangist placards. President Carnot has returned to Paris. Two Republicans were elected and fifty-nine new ballots will be necessary. Oi the latter, the voting today favored the Republicans in forty-two cases, the Boulangists in thirteen and the Conser vatives in four. The Royalist deputy for Belleville has been sentenced to 1,500 franks fine and 10,000 francs damages for libeling Gob let. President Carnot has received a letter from the King of Dahomey, complaining that the French attacked him without warning and without declaring war against him. The French merchants now in his power will be kept as host ages. Comtesse Kessler, daughter of Ad miral Lynch, has brought actions against the Matin, Soir and Parti National (newspapers) for accusing her of being a Prussian spy and giving receptions with sinister ends; also for accusing her of stealing Boulanger's mobilizing scheme. FLOWER FEAST. Beginning of the Combat of Flowers at the City of Mexico. City of Mexico, April 27.—The flower feast, or combat of flowers, began this afternoon.

The quantity of flowers was enormous, four carloads coming from Jalapa alone. The celebration was un fortunately brought to a hasty conclusion by rain. A Mexican Run Over. Sacramento, April 27. —While the baseball train was returning from Snow flake park this afternoon it ran over an old Mexican, Peter Gonzales, cutting off his right leg below the knee.

Stanley Likely to Swear Allegiance to the Queen. London, April 27. Stanley was inter viewed yesterday as to the rumor that he is to become a British subject. He replied that it would be premature to answer that question. "My heart," he added, will always be with America. On account of my future work I may formally have to declare my self a British subject. At present I con sider myself an American citizen. I owe my first start in life to America, and shall never forget it." It is believed the British Government intends to effer Stanley the Governor- Generalship of the entire British terri tory in Africa as mapped out by him. DUTCH REPRISALS.

The makeup of the teams was similar to that of the morning, with the exception of a change in batteries, Look abaugh and Stephens, for San Francisco, while Oakland placed Cobb in the box. The afternoon game, although more closely contested, was not as interesting as the morning game. The Oaklands outplayed the 'Friscos in every point.

Sacramento, April 27.—The Sacra mentos beat the Stocktons this afternoon for the second time today, by a score of 21 to 7.
