Rochester, Minn., Auit. 22.
The sun never saw a sadder sight than
when it rose on Rochester this morning. A
cyclone stmcktho city about 'x o'clock last
evening. Its track presents a foene of des
olation never equaled in this vicinity.
North of the railway not a house stands unin
jured, and of the most of them not a vestige
remains. Twenty-three persons are re
ported killed, most of them outright, and a
large number are not expected to live.
About eighty persons have been thus far
found injured, and are being cared for in
vacant halls and buildings, anat the ho
tels, as well as the limited resources of the
citizens will permit. The weather through
out the day had been unsettled, but not un
usually threatening. Clouds would form
and disappear, forming again heavier than
before. The wind was mostly from tha
southeast, blowing scud louds with it,
while away above the rain-bearing stratum
it drove from the northwest all day. About
three o'clock a black cloud arose in the
west, very threatening, but it passed harm
lessly by with a furious wind and somo
drops of rain.
At five o'clock a low black bank lay in
the southwest. It rose rapidly, but pre
sented only the appearance of an ordinary
thunder-storm. As it neared the city
it began to assume a horrible appear
ance. The whole sky was tinged with a
ghastly green, and the masses of clouds
swept around here and there in immense
circles. Wherever it was possible people toe .k
to their cellars, and in no case where this
was done was life lost. In the upper palt
of the city the darkness was at no time
great, but at the lower part of town it gre .v
dark as night. Tne condition of things in
the northern part of the city defies de
scriptii n A few splintered stumps an 1
scattered boards alone remain to show
where the Third Ward was. The mill an 1
dwelling of L. Tordre are a total ruin,
while the immense Zumbrota Planing Mill
is badly wrecked, Mr. Cole, the proprietor,
being caught up by the wind, carried a die
tance of eight or nine rods and dashed to
the earth a mangled corpse.
The residences south of the railroad to
Zumbrota street all suffered, losing roofs,
windows and chimneys. The shaded resi
dence streets are almost impassable from
broken trees, pieces of roofs and debris of
all kinds. On Broadway the tin roofs are
off from Zumbrota street north, anil much
of the plate glass is shattered. The First
Ward suffered the least. Many dwellings
escaped without any injury.
Following is a list of the killed as far as
can be learned at present: John M.Cole,

Steele, daughter of L. Manly, Mrs. VVeath

The (irand I'arade of Knight Templnr
An Imposing Pageant Wilnessed by an
Immense Throng.
San Fkancisco, Aug. 20.
The grand procession of Knights Temp
lar which took place this afternoon is ad
mitted to have been an unqualified success.
The entire population of San Francisco and
seventy thousand strangers declared it so,
cheering throughout the entire route. To
the people of this city it was eminently
gratifying. As early as eight o'clock in
the morning crowds legan gathering on
the streets along which the procession
would pass, nnd by nine o'clock Market
street was rendered impassable, except
the roadway whi.m, by police orders, had
been kept clear for the passage of the
Kni' ' s. At half-past nine o'clock the
Co dories began to arrive, taking up
the p...,,tions assigned them in the streets
off Market re: erved for the pur
pose. At ten o'clock all had
arrived and at thnt hour the scene pre
sented from the gallery of the Baldwin
Hotel was one not readily to bo forgotten
by San Franciscans who had the good for
tune to witness it. On one side a mass of
decorations extending as far as tho tri
umphal arch ; cm the other side, 4,tXK) richly-clad
Knight i, representing every State
and Territory i the United States. To the
old California p'oneer it was something be
yond realization His mind reverted to the
sand hills, and be was dazed. At half-past
ten the order was given by the Captain
General to move forward. A platoon of
mounted police spurred their horses onward
to clear the way, followed by a detachment
of police on foot. Tho first Commandery
that led off was California Commandery,
No. 1, their silver-embroidered velvet
cloaks and plumed hats, with richly ca
parisoned horses, attracting marked atten
tion. Following them came the Golden
Gate and Oakland Commanderies, the
Grand Master, Governor Sir (Jeorge Per
kins, riding a milk-white charger specially
presented to him for the occasion by Judge
Denison, of Sacramento, following accom
panied by his staff. Next in order came
various Commanderies from California,
Oregon, Washington Territory, Ne
vada and Arizona, each preceded by
their respective bands. These completed
the Hrst three divisions, after which, up to
the tenth division, came the Commanderies
of States east of the Rocky Mountains.
Among the latter particularly remarked
from the smallness of numbers nnd pluck of
coining were Arkansas, De Molni of Fort
Smith; Washington, No. 1, of Hartford,
Conn.; Damascus, No. 2, of Jacksonville,
Fin., and Cyrene, No. 8. of Middleton,
Conn., which in the person of Sir
Knight Brataard LeRoy is repre
sented. The approach of Lyon & Healy's
band of Chicago with their striking
uniforms made every ono nsk:"Whoare
these Knights coming?" "They are the St.
Bernards, of Chicago, who by the Knights
of this coast are held in especial esteem."
As they passed by, the knowledge of what,
they were and tho appearance they pre
sented excited long and hearty cheers. The
tenth and last division was oomposad of
the Grand Kncampmentof sbetTntted States,
led by Sir Wm. Knox, l'ast Crand Com
mander of California. Tho Royal Hawa
iian band, selected by the Grand Command
ery of this State as official orchestra of the
Conclave, immediately preceded tho Bos
ton Commnnd''ry .which acted as especial es
cort to theGrand Master of theUnited States.
The Bostonians were highly complimented
for their excellent nppearance, and cheer
after cheer was given them as they passed
by, marching in close order and with mark
ed precision. Following them, on white
chargers, came Grand Master Dean, accom
panied by a numerous and brilliant, staff,
and tho procession terminated with DeWitt
Clinton Commandery of Virginia City,
Nev., mounted on black steeds and acting
as grand guard of honor to the Grand En
campment. The Virginians merited com-
idiment in dress, horses and accoutrements,
t was generally acknowledged that they
bore off the honors of tho day. The Knights
first proceeded to the payilion, where ad
dresses were delivered by Gov. Htoneman,
of Califowia, ex-Gov. Perkins, Mayor of
tho city, and others. Then they marched to
Vanness avenue, where they were reviewed
by tho Grand Master, after which the march
through tho city liegan. It occupied an
hour in passing a given point. As near as
ran Iu determine ' " W(J ICnights took f art,
representing .'Mid ntanderies, from forty-six
States and ;rritories. In a word,
every State and erritory in tho United
States was represented.
The Crops in Hie Northwcsti
St. Paci Minn., Auk. ).
Harvest began all along the Northern
Pacific to-day. In the entire valley the
week has been characterized chiefly by the
increase of quality of the wheat fields,
which were expected not te go over No. 1.
Under the favorable condition of the past
week the fields are now confidently ex
pected to give up a bounteous yield of No.
1 hard. George Barnes, President of tho
Northern Pacific Elevator Company, speaks
very highly of tho crop being harvested.
He says that in his long and varied ex
perience in wheat matters he has never
seen such a wonderful outcome. Six weeks
ago there was apparently n complete
failure. The stalk is rather short, but the
beads are long and the grain plump and
large. Indeed, so large and heavy are the
grains that some fear has been expressed
that careless handling would cause somo
shelling, but by oommcnapig early and cut
ting it before it is over-ripe it is hoped to
avoid this contingency. There can be no
question that the crop will be largo. The
few fields that have already lieen
cut fully bear out the assertion that the
Red River Valley output of wheat will lie
a great one. On the Dalrymple farm har
vest commenced to-day with 130 self-binders
in a row. The oat crop in Cass will
also be a large one and the result big. The
average wheat crop for the immediate. Red
River Valley can be set down at twenty
five bushels, and beyond a distance of
thirty miles from the river it may fall a
little Iielow it. In Traill, Walsh, Grand
Fork and Pembina Counties the harvest will
commence to-morrow and next day, and
the present fine weather mav be taken as a
guarantee that the crop will lie secured in
good condition. On the Minnesota the har
vest was begun in several places and the
yield was good. Five large elevators are
being erected along the line of the More
head Northern for the reception of the fall
crop. With another week of fair weather,
and everything points to that now, the
crop of North Dakota will be cut and in
shock, and the best ever harvested in thi

St. Pact Minn., Aug. a).
The first legal execution which ever oc
curred in Western Montana took place on
Thursday, at Misscula, in the hanging of
Ah Yung, a Chinaman, in the Misscula jail
yard. It was witnessed by about MM peo
ple. The crime for which this execution
was the penalty was committed January
251 last, when in an attempt to blow up the
tent of the Paymaster at. Horse Plains and
rob the inmates, Ah Yung shot and killed
the Chinaman who owned the tent, and
wounded his brother, who attempted to fol
low him. To the last Ah Yung maintained
his innocence.
