Damage In Intra and
Other State*.
By tbe Associated Pros*.
Chicago, Nov. 18.—In B<J hours not a
click has been heard from the telegraph
instruments connecting Chicago with
the great northwest. Up to midnight
tbe situation is unchanged. It was
learned from £. J. Earling, general
manager of tbe Chicago, Milwaukee and
St. Paul railway, who arrived
from the northwest, tbat last
night's storm was very severe
throughout Wisconsin, lowa and South
ern Minnesota. It started with a heavy
wind and rain storm. The rain sudden
ly turned to snow, which fell to the
depth of a foot throughout Western
Wisconsin. The rain froze on the wires,
breaking them down with the great
weight of ice, and any number ol tele
graph poles are down.
Utter Rnln and solution in th* Track
of the Sturm.
Red Bud, 111., Nov. 18 —The cyclone
which passed over this town yesterday
completely demolished one portion of
the city, wrecking 93 buildings, killing
three people, wounding 20 and causing
a loss of property to the amount of
$150,000. It was one of the worst storms
that ever passed over tbe state.
The scene following the disaster was
one of utter ruin and desolation.
Tbe country was strewn with
debris' of all descriptions. Trees had
been torn up by the roots and carried
hundreds of feet away. Houses were
razed to the ground and scattered over
acres of ground. Household goods and
wreckage of all descriptions were mixed
into an unrecognizable mass. Tbe work
of rescuing tbe wounded and taking
the dead from the ruins began immedi
ately after the storm had ceased. The
work was hindered by the inky dark
ness, and could only progress under the
momentary,flashes of lightning. It ie
feared that eeveral of the injured
will yet die. Ia many cases
people were left, unhurt in tn'eV U ts,
while tbeir houses were bloWn half a
mile away. One-third of the people of
Red Bud did not hear the storm, and
rested quietly in bed until dawn. Had
the tornado's track been 300 feet further
north the business portion of
town would bave been de
stroyed. _ The mayor convened
the council; citizens called a meeting,
and relief committees were appointed to
solicit assistance from the public. It is
bel ievtd that Red Bud, wbich has al
ways been prompt to respond to all calls
of distress from elsewhere, will not be
forgotten. Contributions foiwarded to
the msyor will be placed in good hands.
Chester, 111., Nov. 18 —The cyclone
which did to much damsge at Red Bud
destroyed considerable property here.
Tbe storm blew rtown a large tree upon
the house of Htrmon Ottengen, six
miles north of here, and crushed it, kill
ing his wife and two children.
Only • Few DUantora Reported So Far
as Heard From.
Detroit, Nov. 18 —The wind blew a
terrific gale on the lakes last night
The average velocity was nearly 40
miles an hour, and the maximum 50
miles. It is hoped that few
disasters will result from the gale, as
ample notice was given of its approach.
The only serious casualty reported in
this vicinity is that of tbe large schooner
Hattie Wells, lumber laden, which was
driven ashore on the west side of Lake
Erie during the night. She is exuoeei
to tbe full fury of the gale, and the seas
are breaking over her. The crew suc
ceeded in reaching the chore.
East Tawas, Mich., Nov. 18—The
small schooner Spsulding, of Mount
Clemens, which dropped anchor during
the gale last night, struck against Em
ery's dock and badly damaged Doth cap
stans. The captain's son in-law and the
mate's son were drowned.
Tremendous Damage Dona at Dubuque
and I Iclnlty.
Dubuque, la., Nov. 18 —Dubuque's
first winter storm proved the severest
and most disastrous it has experienced
for many yeara. Snow began falling
yesterday morning, accompanied by a
high wind, and before night a bliz
zard set in, and in a short time
telegraph communication was entirely
cutoff In tbe city tfie telephone, fire
alarm and e»ery kind of electric jervice
was rendered useless. It is impossible
to estimate the damage, bnt in tie city
alone it will run away up in tbe thous
ands, whil" it will probably be much
more along the railroads in this vicinity.
A Cyclone in Arkansas.
Durham. Ark., Nov. 18 —A village in

wheel is responsible for tbe wreck.
He Hays the People are Better Informed
on Financial Topics in Tbis Coun
try Than on the Other Side
of tha Atlantic.
1 London, Nov. 18.—The Financial
News publishes an interview with
Benator Jones, one of the American
delegates to the monetary conference.
Senator Jones says the people of tbe
United States appreciate the vital im
portance of the currency question, while
in England many people are ignorant of
the rudiments of the matter.
"There ie hardly an American elector
who has not formed an intelligent
opinion on this subject," said the
senator. "It had a most important in
fluence on the late election."
In reply to the question as to whether
the Democrats would introduce a free
coinage bill in congrees, the senator
said: "Yes, they are bound to. The
Times affirms tbat the majority of the
new house of representatives are op
pneed to free coinage. I feel cure that
this is erroneous. On tbe contrary
there is a two-thirds majority in its fa
vot. It was among the Democrats of
the last house that the supporters of
free coinage was found. If you trace
these men to their constituencies, yon
will find they have been re-elected
Whether a free coinage bill is introduced
by the Democrats, and whether it
passes or not, are different matters.
Mr. Cleveland himself is against free
coinage. It ie just a question how far
the Democrats will feel the influence of
his personality. A great maBB of the
people are bent on free coinage. Why
should free coinage tend to depreciate
silver? We hear from the Indian offi
cials much about the depreciation of
silver in India, but the Indian gets as
many free commodities as be ever got.
It is not silver that depreciates. It is
gold that appreciates- We hear about
great stacks of silver. Where are they?
When you talk of grain or petroleum
you can substantiate your statement.
I want the same done in tbe use of sil
ver "
The British delegates to the interna

Tne complacency with which the cab

dealingwith political changes in Ireland,
has broken down on facing the financial
question. Gladstone himself has not
ventured to present.adetinite or detailed
solution of the question, postponing,
with the consent of bis colleagues, the
clauses relating to finance until tbe
cabinet resumes its sittings in January.
Frank James, Conservative, in the

occured on the Union Pacific, four miles
weat of Cascade. Passengers and mails
are being transferred by boat around
the obstruction. Tbe slide is about 400
feet in length and it will take several

A vast stream of soft earth, huge
boulders and trees is constantly corn
inn: down the mountain side. It
has completely covered up a ranch,
with all the buildings on it
and is securing an outlet in the river'
about one-fourth of a mile from the'
railroad track. A loud rumbling can be
beard from the mountains whence the
stream comes, and the noiße
made in the breaking of tbe boul
derß is distinctly audible several
miles distant. The railroad company
cannot stop the flow, as tho mass ia so
enormous. Only a slight delay is occa
sioned, however, as the company has
boats at the scene with which to trans
fer passengers and mails.

Mrs. Blame Anxious for a Change of
Scene and Climate—The Family
Coming Here After the
Christmas Holidays.
San Francisco, Nov. 18.—The Call
says: James G. Blame has signified
his intention to spend the winter
months following the Christmas holi
days in Southern California. A per
sonal friend of tbe Blame family resid
ing near Los Angeles has been prevail
ing upon America's great statesman to
spend bis remaining years among tbe
orange groves of ■ Southern California.
In a letter received about a week ago,
Mr. Blame accepted a hospitable invita
tion to test the virtues of the California
climate. In bis letter Mr. Blame says
his physical condition has been impaired
by overwork, excessive study and by
tbe sorrows which have encompassed
bis declining years. His physician has
exacted absolute retirement from all
mental work and advised a change of
climate. Mr. Blame admits that bis
sojourn in Italy did bim much good.
He prefers to remain under the stars
and stripes, and the tone of his letter
indicates that if all the circumstances

The Queen and Crnacont Telegraphers
Strike May Nut Take Place.
Cincinnati, 0., Nov. 18 — Judging
from what has been accomplished today
the prospect of the strike by tbe railway
telegraph operators on the Queen and
Crescent system is more and more
uncertain. President Felton, Vice-Pres
ident Harvey and General Mana
ger Carroll held quite a lengthy
discussion today upon the sub
ject, and invited the grievance
committee of the telegraphers to meet
them this afternoon. This last confer
ence was held late, and for lack of time
no definite settlement was reached, but
an appointment was made for a meeting
of the same parties tomorrow. From
what has been said by Vice-President
Harvey, the inference has been drawn
that a compromise is possible.
The Truffle Puol Postponed.
New York, Nov. 18 —The agreement
of the presidents of the trunk lines to
eetablieb a pool for the diversion of all
westbound freight traffic between New
York and Chicago was to have been fol
lowed by similar action governing east
bound business. Tbere was a hitch,
however, in the programme. The trunk
line presidents calculated that the time
for a pool would remain secret
for some time to come, possibly
until tbe proposed amendments to
the interstate commerce act were effec
tive. The publication of tbe detaile of
the new west-bound traffic association
brought things to a temporary stand
still. It is thought this does not mean
tbat it will not be formed, but it will be
postponed until they see bow tbe west
bound pool is received and how it
Another Traffic Aoaoolatlon D»ad.
Caicago, Nov. 18 —Another traffic as
sociation gave up tbe ghost today. This

tion. A meeting of the members was
held here today and without much pre
liminary discussion ihev adopted a reso
lution providing for the" disbandment of
the organization to take effect tomorrow,
the 19th. General Manager St John of
the Kock Island who presided at today's
meeting, thinks tbat a new and inde
pendent agreement will be adopted by
the trans-Missouri lines in time 'o be
come effective January Ist. A confer
ence by tbe general passenger agents of
the Northwestern lines will beheld here
next Monday to hear the chatges pre
ferred against them by the Soo line.
