Special DUpatcU to The Tribune.
New York, Aug. 10.—A Tima special from
Wallingford, Conn., says no man who has not
looked upon the ruin wrought In this place by
the storm ol Friday can conceive of the terrible
force with which the elements beat upon the
plains of Wallingford during the few moments
It lasted. Never did storm come with
more appalling suddenness. Friday afternoon
■was one of the loveliest of the season. Light
clouds sailed across the sky until 3or 4 o’clock
in the afternoon, occasionally obscuring the
sun. Then a few black clouds portend
ing disaster appeared over .Mount Lamen
tation, a high hill lying to the westward
of the village. Tinder the foot of this hill
spreads Lake Windermere, an artificial pond
created by the community people by damming
the Quinuipiac Kiver. Wallingford lies between
this hill and another not so high that
runs parallel to the mountain east of the town.
Hills surround the pretty village.
toward 5 o’clock, when the workmen about the
village left the factories and the mills, and
started for their homes. The wives set about
preparing supper for their returning husbands,
and only a passing glance was east toward the
murky clouds that rolled oyer the western
By s:3oo’clock they had become Intensely black.
Still there .was no sense of impending danger.
The utter stillness that precedes many
storms settled down In the valley Just before B
o’clock. All the wind ; scemcil to have died
away, but aloft
at such a pace that many observers took alarm,
and hastened through thcstrccts to seek shelter.
Lightning began to play incessantly across the
low-hanging clouds.
With horrible suddenness a change took place
in the heavens. Under the threatening clouds
other and blacker clouds were driven. They
came up from the west almost with the swift
ness of thought, before a dense black mass that
rolled over the Wallingford community. A
fleecy, white curtain advanced, hiding the
orchards and vineyards as it moved forward.
The • lightning flashed in blinding forks from
this cloud, that was
in its lightness. Incessantly the flashes lighted
up the surrounding country with a lurid purple
light, while the thunder rattled and boomed
with interminable and deafening loudness.
It was about 0:13 that a second mass of
clouds was noticed approaching on a different
current of wind from the northward, aod some
say there was also a counter-current setting in
from the southward, bringing heavy black
clouds that seemed to touch the tops of
the trees. A few drops of raiu fell gently.
Men and women hurried to the windows to
close them, and home-going laborers began to
run. Little reckoned any one the peril of that
moment. Before a cry could be raised, or prep
aration made to escape,
fell upon the homes of the poor. The heavy
clouds over Windermere Lake seemed suddenly
to drop upon the lake, and the waters were
churned into foam with a great whirling
and whistling. The winds from opposite
quarters seemed to meet. A great volume
of water was lifted from the lake and went
swirling up and up Into the air. Lightning is
not quicker than was the advance from west to
east of the column of water and the clouds that
seemed to mingle with it. In a second it started
on a forward course. Before it lay the sand
plains ou which
mostly Irish, have bought lots and established
their dwellings. The plains are nearly flat for a
distance west to east of about a third of a mile.
Then the land rises rapidly to the ridge on
which the main street is laid out. The
Wallingford Community had a water
wheel on the shore of Windermere
Lake. The whirlwind caught it, and it
was crumbled as it it had been built of straws.
A few hundred yards from the lake was a poor
cottage, in which lived Michael Mooney, his
wife Mary, and their sons Daniel and Michael.
Michael was in the village. With the first puff
of wind the woman attempted to shut the win
dows ; the hoys assisted her. Before they knew
what had happened the house was
A power Irresistible carried the building,twisted
into fragments, living through the air, Mrs.
Mooney was caught up and hurled along
through branches o£ trees, and over a telegraph
wire, beyond the railroad, across two lanes, a
distance of nearly a quarter of a mile, when she
was flung down.
The boys were blown through windows along
with bricks, pots, aud pans. Michael was car
ried into the branches of a nrostrated apple
tree. Daniel was whirled away on the gale 150
yards, where he was flung down so violently as
to have bis arm broken, while bis face was a
mass of livid bine spots and deep scratches.
The wind swept out, taking everything i n its
way. High street and Wallace row Intersect
Colony street, and lead up ovoc.the hill toward
Maiu street. On these streets were cabins wid
a few neat new dwellings, and about them gar
dens thriving ana well Kept. In the twinkling
of an eye
and the fragments of what were but a moment
before houses were carried aloft in the consum
ing gale. Houses in Colony street were lifted
from their foundations and crashed, while the
roofs went sailing over the plain toward the
hill, crumbling into fragments as they went.
In the path of the gale stood the Roman
Catholic Church, hemmed In on three aides by
a cemetery. The storm, to judge from the ap
pearance of the ruin as it-looked to-day,
pressing them away from the frame-work. Then
the walls, front and back, were crushed In, and
the roof fell so as to cover all completely. A
more complete wreck than this church could
not have been made, except by fire. Opposite
the church were several little tenements, all oc
cupied by large families. When the gale bad pass
ed, nothing remained to indicate that there had
been there, except the gaping cellars
and a line of splinters leading into other lines
that at last met in an unbroken covering to’the
ground of broken joists, fences, kitchen uten
sils, and clothing.
In this spot, an eighth of a mile on each side
of and opposite to the Catholic Church,
It is a remarkable fact tbit every person killed
was a member of the Catholic Church. In one
of the houses lived Mrs. Downs, a middle-aged
woman. She was whirled! away COO feet, and
picked up dead and almost naked.
A hay-stack on John Lynch’d farm was car
ried an eighth of a mile, and then dropped upon
the side of the bill. «
All this destruction was done in much less
time than it takes to write It. With appalling
violence the wiuu swept up the hill towards
Main street, ' whirling and eddying
about, and dropping a shower of rubbish
on the tobacco fields nelow. ! Where it touched
the brow of the hill, the district school-house
stood in its path. The edifice cost *40,000 in
IS7O, and was a fine brick building of three
stories and a Mansard root The wind struck
upon its west front, pushed in the walls of the
two upper stories,
ana flung them into the yard and then passed
on. In an instant the building was ruined.
Two stories stand, but they arc pushed out of
perpendicular so completely that they will never
be straightened. ‘ . 4
Looking back from the school-house towards
the Westward, about fifty feet below, at the end
of a steep slope, is the; plain, covered with
its carpeting of debr!es,| The entire work
of devastation In thal direction could
be seen, a plain wimjow, half a mile
in width in Its widest part, and In that dreadful
lane were only two or three houses that still
clung together at all, and these so badly

to-day were, heartrending,'and unmanned the
strongest spectators. A. brick school-house was
used as a dead-house, and around this the
thousands gathered, manjr searching for rela
tives and friends, the 'rest 'curious to sec
the dead. Not less than 30.000 people flocked
into the rulued village from ail the surrounding
country. Twenty-five families arc homeless,
and a relief subscription-fund has been started,
headed by Gov. Hubbard with SIOO. Everything
possible is being done for the sufferers. Such a
tornado is almost unprecedented in this section.
Mbridhk, Conn., Aug. 10. —Four of the in
jured at Wallingford, Airs. Alary Lynch and her
daughter Maggie, and Mrs. Patrick Coshen and
her son, Josh Goshen, have died since last night,
making the number killed twenty-five. No more
bodies nave been taken irom the ruins.
Arrangements are being made for funeral
services, to be held in the Town-Hall on Sunday
afternoon. ,
A relief committee has, been appointed, who
are caring for the survivors. , , -
' A large crowd of visitors throng the streets,
and liberal contributlona <g -m6ncy are collect

the public generally.
The tornado also swept: over the southern
part of Dunham and through the town of Kill

down, trees uprooted, and crops injured.
All the saloons in town have been closed by
the Selectmen.
Special DifpatcA to Tht Tribune.
Washington, D. C., Aug. 10.—Washington
was visited by two very severe storms of heavy
rain and strong wind this afternoon at intervals
of an hour. The damage to trees throughout
the city seems to have been greater than in
the earlier part of the week. Some of the
larger residences in the city were un
roofed, hacks and wagons were upset
in the streets, and half, of each of the
glass fronts of the Western Union Telegraph
office were blown in, and one of the messenger
bo\’s very severely mangled by falling glass.
Some of the oldest trees in the city were badly
broken, and all the parks in the section about
the White House were considerably damaged.
The fall of water was again very great, and the
overflow Irom the sewers .caused much damage
iu several parts of the city.

Special Dlepatch to The Tribune.
St. Lodis, Aug. 10.— For over two weeks,
Notary Watts lias been engaged in taking
depositions in wlmt is known as the Chambers-
Damcron suit, a litigation; between two prom
inent Methodist brethren involving a certain
publication right. Chambers is a book pub
lisher and Damcron is the well-known Logan
D. Dameron, publisher of the Christian Advo
cate of this city. Until to day the develop
ments of the case had been so prosv and mo
notonous that most of the local papers had
declined to give them more than a passing
notice. To-day, however, Mrs. Emma
Roberts was placed on the witness-stand,
and her testimony at once gave
a character to the case that ; made it intensely
sensational. She was a witness for Chambers.
She testified that she was the wife of E. A.
Roberts, resident physician of St. Luke’s Hos
pital. She testified that on the 6th of June,
IS7I, a voung lady named Miss Emily Robinson
was brought to the hospital, being very sick
and in a delicate condition.. She was aoout 17,
and unusually pretty.
The following is tne pith of the story: Re
ceived the patient in the Hospital, my
husband being sick at the time. i
inquired Into her condition, and so
forth, and assigned her to her room. Then I
saw her two or three days alter that, hut had
no conversation with her except to ask how she
was, and so forth, to know whether she was
better or worse. The second evening after her
arrival she was taken worse, and sunt for me.
Said she had a secret to tell me. 1 went to the
room, and she requested that all should leave
the room mid the door be closed, and
her first question was, il Mrs. Roberts, do
you think 1 am done or going to die!” I
told her Dr. Pallen told me that he thought she
would die, and she held up her hands and looked
at them, and said: “Pcs,-Mrs. Roberts, I know
lam going to die. I feel like It; and do you
think that God will forgive me for my great
sin I” She then asked mo if I knew her condi
tion. I told her I did: that Dr. Fallen had told
me; and said: “Emily, you have been taking
some medicine that, has made you very
sick,” and she said “ Yes." I asked her where
she had got that medicine. She got it of a Mrs.
Eugeles. Seventh and Lynch, No. 27—, she
could not remember the balance of the number,
but told me I wouhT-findher address In , her
pocketbook. r • -
l ocked her then who was the father ot her
child, and she then declined telling me on'ac
count of the affection and esteem that she
held her mother and. the child. She
disliked to hare her mother and the
child disgraced. She-was very fond of
the child. 1 Insisted on her telling, and she
then told me that Logan D. Dameron was the
fatberof the child, tasked if be bad advised
her to get this medicine. She said, “No.” I
asked her who did tell her. She said a cook in
Mr. Dameron’s kitchen told her, and she tried
to recall to my mind the oay she got the medi
cine. The day she got it she passed by house,
and saw me at the window and spoke
to me. I sent for her mother, and told
her mother what her daughter had said,
and some person asked her (1 don’t know, who
it was) it she didn’t wish to see Mr. Dameron;
I think it was her sister Kate. She said she
did, and her mother and sister went after Mr.
Dameron, but be did not come. 1 went also for
Dr. Johnson to come, andner mother asked her
before God and all the witnesses around the bed,
who was the father of the child, and£she said
Logan D. Dameron, and Dr. Johnson
and the Chaplain didn’t hear. She
didn’t speak loud enough for them
to hear, and her mother repeated
the question again. Dr. Johnson repeated Mr.
Damercn’s name again, but I don’t know
whether Mr, Wickens, the Chaplain, heard it or
not. He is a little deal.
Well, I stayed with her some time longer that
night, and left her in the care of her mother
and sister. The next morning the child was
born at about 10 o’clock.
Q. —How long did she live after the birth of
the child. A.—She died that night, some time
about 12 or 2 o’clock in the morning.
Q. —Now, have you stated, as near as you can
recollect, this conversation with Miss Robinson
with reference to the paternity of the child.
A.—Yes, sir; every word that I can recollect.
I remember now I asked her If Mr. Dameron
promised to do something for her, and the re
ply was that he promised to support her. I
asked her also If she had seen him lately, and
she answered “No." I believe, that is every
thing I remember about the conversation.'
Q.—Did you have any further conversation
with her! .
A.—No, sir. She was not in her right mind
after that, so that she cDUId talk to me.
Q.—Did you ever have any conversation with
Fallen i
A.—Yes, sir; we had a good many.
Q. —Will you slate, Mrs. Roberts, as near as
you can, what these couversations were
A.—After the child was burn, and Dr. Fallen
was told who the father of the child was, his re
mark was, “ I expected this. I have been look
ing tor something of that kind.” Thai he bad
attended Mrs. Dameron in her illness, and he
said he hau noticed too great familiaritybctween
Miss Robinson and -Mr. Dameron, and be re
marked that there was another girl who had left
the house under suspicious circumstances, and
that Miss Robinson was a connection or relative
of ,lis - . ....
Q.—Airs. Roberts, was there anything else
you know in reference to this matter that I
have not asked vouf If so, please state it.
A.—l have not told you of the disposition of
the child. Dr. Johnson was there just after the
child was born, and so was Dr. Fallen, and I
asked Dr. Fallen what we should do with it, and
Airs. Robinson requested so much not to give
any publicity to it, and 1 promised that I would
not, and Dr." Fallen said be would sec that the
child was taken awav. He told me he would
send Dr. Lightburu to the house.
Q.— Anything furtner.
A.—That is all I know.
This testimony naturally created a flutter
among the brethren present, and the Rev.
Dameron, who was absent at the time, was hur
riedly sent for. He came in a considerable
state of excitement, and, after a protest to the
Notary that such evidence was irrelevant and
immaterial in the case pending, was about to
cross-examine the witness, when an adjourn
ment was taken until Monday.
The facts in this case have been discussed
often before in certain circles, but the lascivious
person has thus far escaped publication in the
newspapers. It is said that he has been a par
ticipant in a number of ocher licentious adven
tures during his ministerial career, about which
his enemies will no longer keep mum.
