OIDONNELL 0 K Letter from the Distillers of O'Con. nell O R. CINCINNATI, OImo, May 19, 1883. tI W. S. Wetzel, Esq., Benton, 3t. T: DEAR SIR.-Our attention has been call ed to the antics of one J. M. O'Donnell in , your city with reference to our celebrated brand of whisky O'Connell O K, and his impudent assertions in your papers that it is a counterfeit of his :so-called O'Don nell O K. This man O'Donnell is an ar rant humbug, well known in this city where he once flourished after a fashian, and left a record behind him. As to his "claims" about the brand, it is [only necessary to say that the O'Connell brand of whisky was distilled by our predeces sors, Saml. N. Pike & Co., and had a wide reputation before Mister O'Donnell !left his native bogs in Ireland. The following letter received a few years ago from Mr. Henry Pike, brother and partner of Samuel N. Pike, will per haps be of interest to yourselves and the public generally in this connection : NEW YORK, Sept. 4, 1878. FRIEND JOHNSON.-TO my great aston ishment I saw by the papers that J. M. O'Donnell had you arrested for infringe ment on the brand called O K. This is a piece of great outrage on you. If you will look hack over the old books of S. N. & H. Pike (which I presume you have) you will find that I established the brand of O K O'Connell Bourbon as tar back as 1851 or 52, long before O'Donnell ever thought of going into business in tfis country. If I can serve you in the matter you can com mand my services." Your old Friend, H. PIKE. The "arrest" mentioned above in Mr. Pike's letter was of a piece with O'Don nell's general character. The case was, of course, dismissed, and had O'Donnell any responsibility to make it worth our time, we should have made it quite interesting i for. him. But he was "bomb-proof" in I that respect then, and so far as we know I is no better now; like the man who began business on nothing and ended the same way--he holds his own. [ A sufficient answer to this man O'Don- I nell is that if he has any "claims" we in,. vite him to come to Cinoinnati mtud test them in the courts. This he will never do, of course, for obvious reasons. His 1 O'Donnell brand has never troubled us in 1 the least. It might be "O'Flaherty's 0 f K," for all we would care. In point of purity, quality and all that a'tfine whisky C should possess to give it merit before the I public, it is absurd to consider the stuf I he tries to sell asin any sense comparable to the O'Connell 0 K; and if we are not greatly mistaken this is about the size of it in Benton. While we dislike notoriety especially of the newspaper kind and regard it as hu miliating to have to defend ourselves after an honorable record of many years against such "'persons as O'Donnell, we would be pleased to have the contents of this letter given to the publiQ'0through your press, after which we will, and you may also, treat this humbug with the con tempt he deserves. Respectfully yours W. W. JOHNSON & Co., Sole proprietors and Distillers of the Celebrated O'Connell 0 K Wkisky. P. S. O'Donnell, weunde rtalnd "claims" to have a distillery, if so, it mu be located in Spain or some other favored locality-it certainly is not in. Kentucky. We are of the opinion that if diligent search could be made among the St. Louis rectifiying houses Mr. O'Donnell's "Distil lery" might be discovered in a -convenl ent corner of one of them. That is not the kind of a "Distillery" to expect much pure whisky from, no matter how much advertised, or however fancifully put up and branded, or by what name it may be called. W. W J. & Co. Notice, Notice is hereby given, that from this date, no person or persons will be asso ciated or interested with me, in any min ing locations made by me in the future. JOSEPH W. MEEK.

INDIANAPOLIS, May 30.--News of a veliry destructive torvado having passed over the counties of Clay, Owen, Johnson and Shelby, Monday evening was not received I sooner on account of the smaller towns which suffered the most, having no tele graphic communication. At Clay City, a town in the southwestern part of Clay county, the bank building of Thompson & Witz was unroofed and Abe Burger's wareroom destroyed, besides other smaller buildings. The storm passed over a part of the town and destroyed John Craft's farm house, demolishing it, and KILLING FIVE INMATES, Mrs. Craft and child, Mrs. lWilliamsotl and child, and a young man named l'fister, who stopped to take refuge. A heavy rain and hail icompanied the wind at Patricks. burg, Owen county. Th path of the cy. clone was a lile wide and greal. I,.ave was made in the town. Two saw nmills were destroyed besides a dozen houses. A large flouring mill was unroofel. Coots & Small's store was badly wrecked, and the proprietors badly injured. The houses of Dr. Rlchards and Dr. Storm and the Chris tian church were all damaged greatly. The Flat Rock valley in Shelby county suffered from the high winds, destroying timber, orchards, fences and houses, ren dering many roads impassable, and the loss of many thousands of dollars. ADDITIONAL DETAILS, CINCINNATI, May 30.-Reports are still coming of the storm of Monday night. Up the Little Miami valley something like a cloud-burst occurred, driving people off first floors with the flood. At Freeport the bridge across the Miami was torn from its piers and wrecked, Stubb's flouring mill was uuroofed. In Shelby, Decatur and Bartholemew counties, Ind., the de struction of barns, fences, timber and growing crops was almost immeasurable, yet not a single person was hurt. In But ler county, 0., a family near West Ches ter, was badly injured by falling walls A great number of barns were unroofed, and two or three dwellings demolished at Lancaster, Owen county, and W. R. Wil. Hams, wife and child and four Craft broth. ers were killed by timbers falling on them, Several others were injured. From vari ous other points in Ohio and Indiana come reports of high winds, extraordinary rain, hail and lightning, An Enterprising Chinaman. The Mongolians are rapidly getting civ ilized here. Tom Lee, whplarried a bnx om Irish lass, took out naturalization pa pers,gave a feast in honor of a daughter got appointed a deputy sheriff, and became by common consent the leading spirit.in the colony, has proved an exceedingly apt scholar. He began poor: he became rich. His little cigar store grew into a manufactury. It is now found out that he has been levying tribute on the Chinese gambling houses in his official capacity, much the same as the police captains do on a larger scale. He has only charged $5 aweek to protect each den, but his collect ions from this source are believed to have amonted to $20,000 annually, and it is charged that in many instances he has ter rdoized men who do not kcep gambling houses, but simply played harmless games for their own amusement. His credentials as deputy sheriff' have been takenl away from himq but he has barricaded hisp'ace armed his followers, and threathen dire vengeance against all who shall go before the grand jury on his account. After all, will it be consistent to make an example of Tom Lee and say nothing of Capt. Will iams, for instance. Accident Or Design? ST.L.WATER, Special Telegram, June 3. -About 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon three boys named, respectively, John Ba ker, John Weber, and Mark Gobbert, were fishing in a small lake near Steia acher's brickyard, when a shot came from across the lake from the direction of the Stoughton house, and struck young Gob ert in the top of the head as he was stoop ing over, killing him instantly. The other boys say they heard several shots in that direction and saw boys about there, but could not distinguish who they were. Of ficer McCarthy and Dr. Watier went at once to the place, but could find no further facts. An inquest will probably be held to-morrow. The boy was about ten years of age, and resided with his parents on Seventh street, near Churchill* Brlek Rouse to Let.
