WRECKED BY A CYCLONE. Appalling News Again Comes From Kansas. The Thriving City of Welling ton Laid in Ruins. Huge Brick Blocks Crushed to the Earth Like Eggshells. At Least Fifty People Killed and a Hundred Injured—Fire Adds Horror to the Scene of Destruction. By the Associated Press. Kansas City, May ?7.—A special from Wellington, Kan., says: A cyclone passed over this place this evening, kill ing and injuring 600 people. The storm passed directly through the center of the town, wrecking everything in its path. Fire broke oat in the wrecked district, and is now burning fiercely. PARTICULARS OF THE DISASTER. A Journal special from Wellington, Kan., says: A cyclone tonight ploughed through the business part of town with immense destruction to property and some loss of life; just bow much, is impossible to tell at this writing. A heavy storm of wind pieceded the cy clone about half an hour. A few minutes after 0 o'clock the cyclone struck the city, coming from the southwest. Wash ington avenue, the principal business street, is lined on both sides for blocks witn ruins. To add to the horror, fire broke out among the debris of Oolonel Robinson's block, and Mrs. Susan Asher is supposed to have perished in the flames. A solid block of brick buildings, con taining half a dozen stores and printing offloes, lies in a tumbled heap. Just across the street a laborer named Fan ning was taken out of the ruins dead. It is thought other bodies are in the pile. T Hundreds of dwellings were either totally destroyed or more or leas dam aged. The city is in darkness, as the broken mains made it necessary to shut down the gas works and save destruc tion from fire. Hon. James Lawrence, Walter For sythe and Ed. Forsythe wore danger ously injured. Seven bodies have been taken out of the Phillips house ruins, and a large force is at work removing the debris. Two members of the Salvation army are expected to die from injuries re ceived. At Squire Smith's residence, seven persons are more or less injured. The streets are littered with tin roof ing, cloth, awnings and timbers. The people on the streets are carrying lan terns, anoHritutterly impossible to get at the exact facts. The destruction is simply awful and every minute adds to the horror of the situation. The Standard and Mail offices are wrecked. The opera house and dozens of the best business build ings are destroyed. Fine school build ings and churches are ruined and the loss will foot up many thousands of dol lars. No reports have been received from other points. Wellington is the county seat of Sum ner county, and has a population of over 10,000 inhabitants. It ia in the center of a thickly settled agricultural district. AWFUL DESTRUCTION. ' A Times special from Wellington,Kan., says: The cyclone was terribly destruc tive. At 11 o'clock fifteen persons are known to have been killed, and the in vestigation of the wrecked buildings is only barely commenced. The cyclone did not do much damage till it reached the center of town. On Jefferson avenue it destroyed the Lutheran church. Furious work was done within the com- Eass of the four squares bounded y Jefferson avenue, Avenue C and Seventh and Ninth streets. Every building in those two squares is demolished and wrecked. Fortunately the residences in tbat locality were not numerous, otherwise the loss of life would have been much greater. The Phillips hotel was demolished, and seven dead bodies have been taken from the ruins. The work of rescue there is only begun. The house was well filled with guests, and the loss of life is thought to be great. The destruction in the northeast part of the city was £reat, but definite details cannot now be ad. Great confusion prevails every where. Following is a complete list of the killed at 2:30 this (Saturday) morning: Frank D. Campbell, James Hastie, Leonard Adamson, Ida Jones, Mrs. Sasber and her sister, Kittie Strahn. Professor Mayor and Hort Upson are missing and probably killed. Lieut. Wm. French and Cadet Samms of the Salvation army, Mrs. Murphy and a chijd named Mattie Hodges are badly injured. Charles Stoner. Guy Colby, Dick Wea ver. Carrie Mitchell and Ed. Forsythe each received injuries more or less seri ous. The streets are impassable and noth ing but ruin exists everywhere.-Atleast fifteen bodies have already been taken out of the ruins, and something less than seventy-five are injured. Men are working everywhere to rescue the im prisoned ones. No one now can realize the extent of the catastrophe, and day . light will alone reveal the saddest scene of ruin and desolation ever witnessed in Southern Kansas. The Cole & Robinson block ruins took fire, and strenuous efforts are being made to rescue the people known to be buried there. THE LOSS HALF A MILLION. St. Louis, May 26.—The Globe-Demo crat's Wellington special says the loss by the cyclone will aggregate $500,000. Two hundred buildings were destroyed. The house of Squire Smith was levelled and several members of the household mangled, probably fatally. The fire at this hour (3 a. m.) is stilt raging. TERRIBLE FATALITY. Wellington, Kan., May 27.—Silva .and Walter Forsythe, taken out of the LOS ANGELES HERALD. ruins of Conrad's restaurant, have since died. The Grand Army hall has been converted into a hospital, and there are now there fifty killed and injured. The latest estimates are fully thirty dead and perhaps a hundred more or less in jured. BOUNCED THE JURY. An lowa Federal Judge Creates a Sen sation. Dcs Moines, la., May 27.—Judge Woolson created a sensation in the fed eral court today by discharging the twelve jurymen who tried the case of President John V. Newton of the Dcs Moines and Kansas City railway. The defendant, after hearing the verdict in hie favor, invited the jurymen and attor neys to an elaborate banquet at a hotel. Judge Woolson, when he had the jury before him, reprimanded them severely and then discharged them. He also reprimanded Newton and said if he could he would set the verdict aside and put him on trial again. The matter has created a great sensation here. New ton's trial was hotly fought for ten days. General Buckland Dead. Cleveland, May 27.~-Gen. Ralph H. Ruckland died at his home in Fremont, 0., this evening, of apoplexy. IS DR. BRIGGS A HERETIC? THE PBKSBYTERIAN ASSEMBLY SITS ON HIS CASE. An Attempt to Send It Back to the New York Presbytery for a New Trial. Confession of Faith. Portland, Ore., May 27.—The Pres byterian assembly was again constituted a court today by the moderator. A res olution was introduced looking to the return of the Brigga case to the presby tery of New York for a new trial. Amendments were offered slightly mod ifying this action, but with the same object in view. The parties to the ap peal were allowed to withdraw in order to prepare a form of action which would be mutually acceptable. Pending this action, the reading of tbe report on the revision of the confession of faith was proceeded with. Just before the closing of the reading of tbe revision report the parties to the appeal returned from their consultation, and revision went over as unfinished business. Judge Struvell stated that no agree ment had been reached, and the mod erator then ruled that as the committee of prosecution refuses to agree to the propositions suggested and to allow the case to go back at once to New York, tbe assembly must hear the appeal. At the afternoon session Dr. Bunch, for the prosecuting committee, took the floor and traversed the six grounds of appeal and tbe twenty-five specifications thereunder fer an hour. Immediately thereafter Dr. Briggs was heard for an boar in rebuttal. His treatment was historically following the order of events at the trial in New V ork. At tbe evening session the report and recommendations of the revision com mittee were adopted, and tbe twenty nine overtures therein proposed were ordered sent down to the presbyteries for their action. This ends the question of revision to far as tbe assembly of '92 is concerned. United Presbyterians. Pittsburg, May 27.—1n \he United Presbyterian general assembly this morning, the committee on prevalent evils and means of reforming them reported at great length on Sabbath desecration by railways, news papers, secret societies, murder, divorce, the social evil, church lotteries and gambling. The report rec ommended that the clergy boldly and openly make themselves acquainted with these evils in order to be able effectually to combat them. It was decided to build a church in Salt Lake City. Tbe report on the religious interests of the army and navy urged congress to provide an adequate number of chap lains in the army. Southern Presbyterians. Hot Springs, Ark., May 27.—The morning session of the Southern Presby terian general assembly was devoted to the hearing of reports on home and foreign missions. At the afternoon session a lengthy debate took place over the wine ques tion, the majority report declaring for fermented grape juice in administering the Lord's supper, and the minority as serting that unfermented was the proper element. After hours of discussion,the majority report was adopted. Southern Methodists. Westminster, Md., May 27.—The general conference of tbe Methodist Episcopal church South adopted a reso lution favoring the passage by congress of an amendment preventing states from passing laws respecting the establish ment of religion, or tbe use of its prop erty or credit or money raised by tax ation for aiding any church, religious denomination or institution under re ligions control. Disastrous Storms. Brownsville, Ind., May 27.—A disas trous storm passed through Jackson county last night. Thousands of acres of wheat were destroyed by wind and bail; much fruit was destroyed. J. D. Johnson and Levi Miller, farm laborers, were killed by lightning. Charleston, W. Va., May 27.—A dis astrous hailstorm visited this section yesterday. Trees were cut to pieces, and corn and fruit ruined; the farmers are discouraged. Investigate the good values in fine tailoring, a perfect fit and large new stock at 125 W. Third st. H. A.

A Disposition to Defer the Elections Till Next Spring. Strong Opposition to the Proposes! In ternational Monetary Conference. The Queen Offers Salisbury a Dukedom. By the Associated Press. London, May 27.—[Copyright; 1892, by the New York Associated Press.J— A cabinet council was convened today for the special purpose of determining the date of the dissolution of parliament. Tbe bulk of the Conservative election agents were of the opinion that it is urgently necessary to dissolve parlia ment within a month, as was the case with the Unionist members. Prior to the council a number of members bod an interview with Balfour, and impressed upon him the necessity of settling the question without aelay. The almost unanimous representations made advised that the dissolution either take place at the end of June or be post poned until the spring of '93. Tbe ten or of the communications made after the council adjourned, indicates the decision of the government to proceed with the Irish local government bill, and tbe abandonment of the intention to resort to dissolution. Balfour promised defin ite declaration on the eve of .the Whit suntide adjournment. This decision will enrage the opposition, who, without de lay, will resort to every device to ob struct government business, but tbe majority of the Unionists will approve it though it will embarrass many. If Conservative anticipations, lodg ing from tonight's talk, be fulfilled, no Gladstone government will be possible till the end of the spring of '93, and no home rule till '94, or while Balfour's local government measure, having a clear year to operate, must complicate Gladstone's task in creating a new Irieh administration. THE SILVER CONFERENCE. Reliable authority tells the Associate*! Press- that Goßchen's acceptance of tjfh invitation to an international monetary conference met with adverse CQmme»t from some of the cabinet members. Jtjpe opponents hope that certain influences now being used with the European government will prevent their tending delegates. Tbey insist that if - the pro gramme commits England to anything, Qotchen should even now withdraw acceptance. Hfgb financial bouses in London, Bremen and Vienna oppose the conference. REDMOND'S MISSION. John Redmond, who leaves Sunday for America, intends to remain enly a week. He hopes to explain the posi tion of tbe party to the Irish-Americans, and refute the cable reports tent by the enemies of the cause. A COMMERCIAL CONGRESS. The proposed programme for a con gress of the chambers of commerce of tbe empire will include considerable protectionist agitation. The proposed resolutions favor a commercial union of the empire; tbe establishment of differential rates between Great Brit ain and the colonies; preference of home products against foreign; Great Britain to grant a discriminating tariff against grain; an international mone tary union, with a unification of tbe currency of the empire. From present indications the gathering will be the greatest trade demonstration ever held in Great Britain. SALISBURY OFFERED A DUKEDOM. It is announced that the queen has offered Salisbury a dukedom in the event of his retiring from power, but it is doubtful if the premier will accept the honor. Baron De Hirscb's mare Le Fleche is now the favorite for the derby. Italian Cabinet Resigned. Bomb, May 27.—The cabinet has re signed. The king refused to- accept their resignations. A-dissolution of the chamber of deputies is believed to be imminent. The resignation is the result of the narrow margin in the vote of confidence in the house yesterday. Tbe cabinet has been in existence only since the 15th instant. An Italian Sensation. Verona, Italy, May 27.—A man named Marchesini surprised bis wife with a lover, an army lieutenant, whom he shot and killed. The parties were in good position and the affair has created a sensation. Stolen Silver. London, May 27.—Burglars scaled the foot wall in the near of the store of Map pin brothers, manufacturers of silver ware, and carried off 3000 ounces of sil ver. The Portuguese Cabinet Resigns. Lisbon, May 27. —The king has ac cepted the resignation of the whole cab inet and charged Ferreira to form an other cabinet. • Portuguese Ministers Resigned. Lisbon, Hay 27.—Finance Minister Martina and Minister of Public Works Cbanceilleiros have resigned. Editors at Sacramento, Sacramento, May 27.—The National Editorial excursionists arrived hereto night from Ohico, and are taking a brief rest. At 2 p. m. they will be taken on the road for Dutch Flat and other points of interest in tbe mountains, re turning here tomorrow night, when they will disband. The officers were ban queted here tonight at the Sutter club. The Swollen Sacramento. Sacramento, May 27.—The river rose one inch here today, but fell again, standing this evening at 26 feet 11 inches. Tbe levees down the river re main intact, and unless a storm should come to raiee the river or create waves, it is likely tbe embankments will hold. There is some wild talk of parties on the Yolo side having been shot at while trying to cnt the levee last night, but it appears to be more suspicion than oth erwise. PONTOONS SUNK. No Trains Able to Cross the Strait* at Port Costa. Pobt Costa, Oal., May 27.—A pon toon under an apron at Benicia sprung a leak and filled with water, drawing the apron down so that the steamer So lano cannot make her landing. A wrecking train and pumps have been at . work all day, but have not yet raised ■ the pontoon. All the Central Pacific : overland trains have been sent by way of Stockton and other trains have been delayed. Tbe pontoon on the Port Costa side of the straits sprung a leak and sunk. It is hard to say when trains will again be able to cross tbe straits. Benicia, Cat., May 27.—The caisson under the apron in the slip of the great ferry steamer Solano sprung a leak, filled and sunk on Thursday night. It was impossible to raise it today, and passengers and baggage are being trans ferred between here and Port Costa by means of the ferryboat Solano. No ' trains are running across. THE MAN FROM MAINE. j i BLAINE PEELING GROWING MORI ; RAMPANT. The West and Northwest Solid for i Him—Blame and Estee Is the Latest Racket. ' New York, May 27.—The Blame feel- ' ing has taken a decidedly bold move- j ment. Senator Pettigrew of South Da kota has evidently got his bearings. He said tonight that he confidently believed Blame would be nominated on first ballot; that tbe South Dakota del- j egation will cast its first vote for Blame; he would get eighteen out of forty-eight delegates; four from North Dakota; half of the Minnesota , delegates; five from Nebraska; six from Montana. California Will go to him with a rush, and other-states will follow suit. J. M. Ashler, of Michigan, a pro nounced Blame man, said the Pacific slope should have a place on the ticket, ana thought Blame and Estee would sweep the country. J. Bloat Fassett thought Estee was a good man, and the Pacific slope ought to get what it wants; but Estee was not a soldier, and the candidate for vice president must be a western man and a soldier. He thought General Alger was a very popular man. 4 reporter asked if Fassett was pre pared <te say Blame would anasiit, the nomination if he receive4*4M, votes. Tfeaeett aaio> he did not ask Blame, but be did not think he would accept under those circumstances. , CALIFORNIA CROPS. Bountiful Production Promised and High Prices Predicted. San Francisco, May 27.—The State Horticultural society held its regular monthly meeting today. Reports from the members concerning the fruit crops showed a generally fair crop of peaches in the interior, and light along the caast. Tbe pear crop in parts, of the northern belt and in the San Joaquin valley was reported heavy, but light in other sec tions. Apricots were reported as being plentiful, but the crop of cherries, plums and prunes is light. The grain crop was reported to be very heavy in many counties. High prices of fruit for the coming season were predicted, as tbe crops in many parts of the country were injured by the recent storms. Charges Being Investigated. Chicago, May 27.—The members of the executive board of the Farmers' Mutual Benefit association, the Farmers' Alliance and Patrons of Husbandry, of this state, met in secret session here to day to inquire into the charges of the National Union company being con trolled by the National Cordage trust. The Bed Hirer Flood. Sbreveport, La., May 27.—The situa tion in this section is growing more se rious. Because of the steady rise of tbe river, a general overflow of the Bed River valley seems inevitable. Thou sands of people have been impoverished. Two more breaks in the levee occurred today. A BIG SCHEME. A Man Who Will Do Universal Adyer • Using. The proprietor of a tailor shop at No. 217 South Spring street hr-d an experi ence with a crank yesterday morning. A tall man walked rapidly into the shop, and in a very business-like way asked to see the proprietor. The clerk showed him to the proprietor, when he quickly left a note in his bands and walked out just as rapidly as he came in, without giving his name or address. The note he left read as follows, and it was taken to the police station to Police Clerk Bean, who is the favorite with the cranks these days: "I can spread your name and business all over the country and hold it there forever. Must get help. Will call about noon tomorrow. Must talk in private. It is' interesting." miles'* Nerve and Liver Pills.
