An Fp-Stream Storm Creates fatl Havoc Among the BastuCss KstabliRtameiits Along the Submerged Kiver Front of Metropolis, Illinois About Fifty Build ings Destroyed. Metkopolis, Ira.., Feb. 19. The river front of this town may be said to lie well nigh in ruins. Such another catastrophe never visited tho place since its existence. About three o'clock p. m. a black cloud came up, 'charged with rain, thunder and lightning and a hurricane ol pod, That part of the city lying, on tho low gvounefs bordering on the river is' flood ed to a depth of from one to seven feet of water. In this district, wdth three excep tions, lay every prominent industry of the qity. It began with Land's lumber yards, which were swept from the face of the wa ters as with the besom of destruction. The storm king took his course of ruin up the river bank, striking tho large stave works of William Bhelton & Co., scattering tliem to the" four- winds of heaven. The destruc tion of these institutions will throw out of employment near fifty families, placing the larjrer portion of thorn on the mercy of the world. Kteping up the river, Captain Johnson's and William Shelton's new frame buildings are a total wreck. The Greens botel, a new pnilding, was also wrecked. Then followed the McHanu build ing on Lower "Ferry street. The next build ings to go wero Riehtei 's saloon and tho front part of the McCauley House, the best hotel building in the city. The Side brick flouring mills of Quanto Bros, are yet weathering the gale. Powlo & Co. and Yost, Bigelow & Co. will suffer great loss. Tho "flooded streets are literally filled' with the debris of wrecked buildings, household furniture and merchandise, making such a scene of destruction rfis the human eye seldom witnesses in a lifetime. It can not yet be told positively whether any lives are lost or not. Sheriff Karr and two other men saw two men without oars in a skiff out in fhe river and tried man fully to .reecue them but cpuld not reach them. They, perhaps, found watery graves, as the waves rolled and pitched like the old ocean.

A TlIREK- ORXEKED TRAGEDY. A Supposed Murdered Husband Turns Un in Kentucky Only to See his Wife iOfled to Kill her Second Spouse and to Him self Receive a Oeatli Wound. Madison, Ino., Feb. in. About nine years ago a young man named Stephens married a beautiful young lady in Chicago and shortly removed to Triml le County, Ky., buying a farm nnd settling dQw, Jsoitle ydars ago Stephens left homo for' the Hhst to purchase some land, since vyhieh time nothing has been heard from him Until yesterday. His wife supposed him dead, robbed and murdered. Sho lived alone until last summer, wlien she formed an attachment for a young farm hand who bad been in her employ for four - years, and they were married in Louisville last July. Stephens stopped at the house yefterday, not intending to let himself be known, but his wife im mediately recognized him, throwing her arms about his neck, and screaming "My long lost husband," and kissing him. This aroused the jealousy of the new husband, whereupon he struck her across the neck with a drawing-knife be had in his hand, cutting her in a frightful manner and sever ing the jugular vein. Sh ' fell to the floor and expired almost instantly. -Stephens drew a revolver and shot the murderer, who in return gave Stephens a cut across the back of the neck with the drawing knife.

Nineteen Miners in a Pennsylvania Colliery Killed by an Kxplosion of l'ire Iamp The It sidles all Recovered A Large Num ber of Widows and Orphans lft to Mourn. C.niontown, P .., Feb. 30. The little mining village of-West Leisen ring. four miles north of here,- "stas this morning the scene of the most terrific ex plosion ever known in the coke regions. Tho Connellsville Coal and Iron Company have 2,000 coke ovens here which have been In operation about a year. The works give emplo3rtnnt to about 100 men and quite a little town has sprung up. The coal is ob tained by means of a shaft wdiich reaches the mine at a distance of 400 feet from the surface. (This morning a part of the force, who had worked all night, left the mines at a littlo after two o'clock, and seventy others took their places, making tho usual morning shift. At about half past-six o'clock, while tho men were digging, suddenly, w ithout warn ing, there occurred an explosion that con vulsed the mine in every apartment and threw the men into the utmost consterna tion. The scene of the explosion was in ono of tfie apartments, fully s60 feet distant from the bottom of the shaft, and therefore about feet, from the . surface opening, yet the report was heard on the outside' for a considerable distance, and eaused such a jar that the top of the derrick a hundred feet high was knocked off. Two nmlus were standing at the bottom of the shaft, 800 feet from the explosion, and therush of air blew one of them through the wooden cage, shattering it to pieces. Tho other mule died from suffocation. The pwful scene that ensued among the terror-stricken miners can not be c scribed. All their lamps were blown out and they were left in darkness and confu sion. They bad not time to recover from their shock until they found themselves nnable to breathe. The explosion of the firedamp left tho mine tilled wilh after damp, which contains no oxygen, and ren ders it impossible for life to be sustained for any time. This after damp is densest in the upper part of the mine and hencethe men hovered near the bottom, but even here they did not long find relief. Of all those who wero in the heading whero the explosion occurred Dick Baisley alone escapod to tell the awful story. When the explosion came and all the lights were blown out Baisley was just changing his clothes He at once wound part of his clothes tightly aroiind his face and mouth to keep the ioul air from choking him and gave the rest of his garments to nis com nanfon. with instructions to take the same precautions. He then started for the main entrance, bidding his companion to follow. They ran over the bodies of men and over shattered wagons. They could see nothing, but could hear the gums qf dying men. Presently Halsley's companian protested tnat thev were not going in the' right, direc tion and turned back. Like Lot's wife, he perished. Ilalsley pushed on until he flu ally saw the light and was taken out. When the news of tho explosion was flashed around the families of the men gath ered about the shaft and wero wild with suspense. Balsley's story gave them little ground to hope that any of the miners would be got out, alive. So dangerous was the after damp that It was fully two hours before any volunteers could enter the mines. Many were on hand ready to make the search, but were unable to do so uutil hope of rescuing the unfortunates alive had quite fled. It was about eight o'clock when the first body was brought out. It was that of Michael Ripko, a Hungarian. His face bore no marks of violence and ho had evi dently died from suffocation. The work of rescuing the men now went on rapidly by willing volunteers and at noon nineteen bodies had been carried out. The company's books were then examined, the roll called, and it was announced that, all the men were accounted for. Coroner Rattan Of this place, with many citizens, weut 'rom hero and the inquest began at .t:.'!0 o'clock.

Their faces were very black, the smoke and dust having been blown into the skin. The la3t man taken out alive was Henry Wilson, who had managed to subsist on air in the very bottom of the mine until res cued. He was almost gone. Many of thoso who were in other parts of the mine suf fered severely. After idemifyingthe bodies Coroner Bar ton adjourned the inquest until Saturday morning. The company will bear all the expenses of the funerals which will take plaoo to-morrow and next day. The accumulation of so much gas in this mine as to cause such tCi explosion is a matter of much surprise. No accident ever before occurred here, and it was regarded as a very safe mine.
