PORTLAND, Mich., July 1.—A cyclone
passed over this town and Orange, in
Ionia county, causing great damage.
The storm first struck William Suyres'
timber, a tract of ten acres of fine hard
wood, and
Leveled the Whole Grovo,
tearing up the trees by the roots or
twisting them into all kinds of fantastic
shapes. From here the cyclone crossed
a belt of open country, carrying fences
and trees with it. Edward Harwood's
barn was in the track of the tempest,
and it was first set on fire by lightning
then demolished by the wind. Three
valuable horses were killed. Stephen
Drum's house was blown to atoms
and the
Family of Five Burled
in the ruins. All escaped alive, how­
ever. Farm fences are obliterated and
dozens of persons injured. Crops are
ruined and much stock killed.

tornado passed over the northern part
of Gallatin at 5:30 p. m., lasting about

roofs, and tearing awnings and signs
from their fastenings. A church, the
African Methodist,
blown to pieces
and the roof caved in on the congrega­
tion. Their screams and cries could be
heard a great distance. Ten were taken
from the debris, and two were so hor­
ribly crushed by the roof and falling
timbers that they are dying. Granville
Brown, the minister, was badly crushed
in the pulpit.
Among the wounded and crippled are
Ann Martin and Mrs. Mary Hoffmann
(both dying). Gilbert Woodford and
child, Mary Horton. Mary Lowrey, a
child of Nannie Sawyers, Granville

An Ohio City Visited by Heavy Winds
Many Buildings Damaged.
TIFFIN. Ohio, July 1.—This city and
the section north were visited by the
heaviest rain and wind storm of recent
experience. Nearly two and a half
inches of rain fell in less than half an
hour, flooding the streets and inundat­
ing cellars in all parts of the city. The
wind tore the roof off the Ohio Stove
works and damaged other building ins
various parts of the city. Shade trees
were prostrated and loose articles scat­
tered about promiscuously. A pecu­
liarity of the wind was its frequent and
stidden shifting from one point of the
compass to its directly opposite.
JSyraud, the Strangler, in Paris.
PARIS, July 1.—Michael Eyraud, the
strangler, who murdered M. Goffe, a
court bailiff, and who after having been

Lafayette, has arrived in Paris.
Ferdinand Criticized.
LONDON, July 1.—The death warrant
of Maj. Panitza received the signature
of Prince Ferdinand, of Bulgaria, while
the latter was on a steamer bound for
Vienna. The absence of Ferdinand from
his capital at this time is severely criti­
cised By the European press.
Washington and Worcester Club* Arrested
and Fined—Something of Farce.
WASHINGTON, July 1.—During the
progress of Sunday's ball game between
the Washington and Worcester clubs at
the Gentlemen's driving park, near Al­
exandria, Va., Sheriff Bench, uf Alexan­
dria county, accompanied by Justice of
the Peace Drummond, colored, served
warrants for arrest upon the manager
and members of the two teams for play­
ing base bull in violation of the Sunday
law. A trial, which developed into a
complete farce, followed, during which
the spectators unmercifully guyed the
justice and the sheriff. Each participant
of the ^aine was fined $2 and costs,
amounting to $4, which was promptly
paid. The game was then itinueil,
and a warrant was again made out
against Secretary Burkett, of the Wash­
ington club, on the charge of playing
ball without a license. Burkett, How­
ever, learned of this move,' and quickly
drove to this city, with ilie sheriff in
pursuit, He will probably be arrested
in the morning to answer this charge.

CHICAGO, June 27.—The decision to be
given the strikers by General Superin
tendent Sullivan, of the Illinois Central,
at 10 o'clock a. m. has not yet been an­
nounced. The officials of the company
and a committee of the strikers are now
in conference, but it is learned that the
company is determined to light to the
end. As the strikers are equally deter­
mined it is not unlikely that before long
the strike will spread all along the line.
Another "Q" Siege Expected.
The railroad officials learned that tile
freight conductors were not able to sup­
port a strike, and propositions were
made to them. The conductors, it is
said, have decided to return to work,
whether the other strikers approve of it
or not. It is said that conductors and
brakernen have been hired from other
roads in the East and that the officials
will not take back any of the old em­
ployes who have not already consented
to return to work. The officials say they
are determined to run the road without
being dictated to by men, and another
eifge similar to the big "Q" strike is
looked for.
Another Division Tied Up.
CAIRO, Ills., June 27.—A committee
of the strikers came here, and on their
orders every freight train between here
and Centralia on the Illinois Central was
side-tracked. The passenger coaches
were detached from two trains and lociu
roads were notified not to handle Cen­
tral cars going to other lines.
Mobile and Ohio Compromises—Other
Bonds Threaten.
ST. LOUIS, June 27.—The St. Louis
freight handlers' strike is still on and
bids fair to last some days. The Mobile
and Ohio has acceded to the men's de­
mands for $1.50 per day, but refused to
grant them extra money for over time.
The men went back to work. It is said
that unless the strikers go to work in
the morning new men will be imported
to fill their places.
The Boston Strike.
BOSTON, June 27.—The building labor­
ers will not accept the wages offered by
the Masons' Builders' association, hold­
ing that the excavators as well as hod
men should have 25 cents an hour, in­
stead of only 22 cents, as offered. Of
the 2,500 men who originally struck,
there are but 419 on strike. Their of­
ficers assert that the others,} whether
excavators or hod carriers, have obtained
the 25 cents per hour demanded.
Strikers Surrender Unconditionally.
DENVER, Colo., June 27.—After an
idlness of eight weeks the striking car­
penters and wood workers returned to
work here on the terms of the mill men.

Three Killed and Four Fatally injured by
Tiie Bursting of a Boiler.
ITHACA, Mich., June 27.—The boiler
in Frank Gardner's stave mill at Norh
Star, near here, exploded, killing

sion train returning from Chautauqua

Herald from San Antonio says: Two
parties have made a maraudin ex ptd
tion against Mexico, one above and the
other below Laredo. The band above
were so hotly pursued on United States
soil by United States troops, that they
crossed over into Mexico before they in­
tended to, and fell into the hands of
Mexican cavalry. In the short fight
which ensued Santiago Sandoval, one of
the leaders, and several of the filibus­
ters were wounded. Soon after their
capture another leader was summarily
?hot, and it is reported that on Wednes­
day evening, after a brief military trial,
the other members of tho party were
taken to a ravine back of Neuva Laredo,
Shot by Tlieir Captors.
The second expedition crossed to Guer­
rero, twenty-five miles below Laredo,
where they robbed the custom house
and several stores. During the attack
on the town one of their leaders was
killed, and shortly afterward the major­
ity of the band was catured. but what
was done with them is a mystery. The
Mexican authorities are studiously silent.
All of the invaders were Mexican citi­
zens, their object being to plunder.

the Murder of Mr. and Mrs, Coombs.

the murder of Mr. and Mrs. Coombs.

of reporters The condemned man was
unattended by clergy as he had stead­

penalty was the murder of Mr. and Mrs.
Coombs at Pine City last November.
His wife had been unduly intimate with
Coombs and Brooker announced his in­
tention of leaving the country. Being
indebted to Coombs he went to the house
taking his gun along, for the purpose of
effecting a settlement. A quarrel arose
in the course of which the killing oc­
curred. He maintains the killing of

the case is the fact that one of the jury­
men a few days ago made afiMrivit that
