Las Yeqa aiilt Optic VOL XVIII. EAST LAS VEGAS, NEW MEXICO, FlttPAY, EVENING, NOVEMBER 27,1890. NO. 21 A TERRIBLE STORfl Sweeps Southern and Wes Central States-Wires Down and Reports Meagre. LOVED HIS MOTHER-IN-LAW General Weyler Asks Spain fer Help and Mores Back to Flnar del Rio. AN EPIDEMIC IN CHICAGO The telegraphic report U very short, to-day, owing to the prostrated condi tion of the Uoited associated press wires Dkwver, Colorado, November 27. A furious gale swept over the sooth central states, last night, but owing to the wires being down, it Is impossible to tell the extent of country visited or the results. The worst destruction seems to be in western Kentucky, where the greatest storm that ever visited this ection of country prevailed. In fact it was literally a tornado and it is feared that many lives have been lost The storm has touched, to a greater or less degree, all the south . and south western states, and the telegraph ser Tioe in all this section of the country is in a prostrated condition. Added to the furious gales that have been blow. lag. is the intense cold that has been experienced in some of . this country which does not, as a rule, experience now and sleet. Paducah. Kentucky, November 27 Owing to the wires being down only meagre details of the storm 'Which swept west Kentuokv last night have reached here. One house was des troyed at Fulton and considerable other damige was done there. A man and ohild are missing from Kuttawa, Kentucky. It is believed they were blown into the Cumberland river and drowned. The depot was wrecked at Eddyvllle and a factory blown and court house unroofed. down A Western Failure. - South McAlister, I.

Micb., November 27 Congressman Smith, who returned from a visit to President-elect MoKin. ley at Canton, last night, said, this morning, he was sure an extra session of congress would be called. Anethsr Big Failure. Chicago, Illinois, November 27 Shoninger, Levy & Co., wholesale lace dealers, confessed judgment In the sn perior court for $53 000, to day. Li a bilities are about $100,000. The asset are not stated. The failure is caused bv slow collections and lack of busi ness. Railroad In Trouble. Indianapolis, Ind., November 27 A bill of complaint was filed in the United States court, to-day, against the Terra Haute & Indianapolis rail road and Indiana, Lake Michigan rail road asking for the appointment of a receiver for the latter road, so it may be sold to satisfy a debt of $12,000 due . the Central trust comyany of New York, and the holders of the bonds. A Change In Telephone Control. Boston. Mass., November 27. The contract between the Bell tele phone company and the Western union telegraph company lormauy expired bv limitation to-day. Various stories to the effect that the contract had al ready expired have been printed dur ing the past few weeks, but as a mat ter of fact the instrument dated for a period of seventeen years from Novem ber 27th, 1879. It has been officially stated by high officers of the Western union telegraph oompany that no steps have been taken looking to an exten sion of the oontract, and which has virtually been the mainstay of the Bell oompany, and it is therefore believed that the Western union proposes to go into the telephone business for itself. The developments of the next few months in this connection will be awaited with interest by telephone users throughout the country as well as by the independent telephone manufacturers. LOVED HI5 MOTHER-IN-LAW. Improbable as It Must Seen Nevertheleu It Muet Be True. London, England, November 27 The trial of Lady Scott, Cockerton, Aylott and Kast for having criminally libelled Earl Russell, continued to-day with Earl Russell still in the witness box. In the evidence produced on Wednesday, a letter from the earl to Lady Tina Scott, bis wife's mother, he sy8 : "Parting with yon seems hard er to bear as it gets nearer. I ion sea why you are not coming to the station. I want to give you a last bujr, my dsrllng, my angel. Bother, I am beginning to cry." la a subsequent letter to Lady Scott the earl described his wife as "Hard hearted fiend" and while the countess was gone on a three months visit to Earl Russell's mother the witness wrote to Lady Scott and asked her to come and stay with him during his wife's absence. Be said : "If you fail to accept this concession, I shall know you love me no more than that falsa woman daes." This characterisitioa applied to the countess. This letter also read: "God bless yOo my dear one. God keep you safe always. Uh dearest, I can't write any more, I Cannot see the paper. Good-night my darling." THROAT TROUBLB EPIDEMIC. Thousands Are Ska With Dlpth.rl., Tonslll- tla and Ulceration, la Chicago. Chicago, Illinois, November 27. Never within the recollection of Its old est physicians has Chicago experienced such an epimomio of throat troubles as prevails at the present time. Dipthe ria, tonsilitis, ulceration of the larynx and simple sore throat are raging with extraordinary vlrulenoe, espootally in those portions of the oity adjioent to the lake, and the demands on the lead ing pbysioans and throat specialists are keeping tbem on tbelr rounds from early In the morning until late at night. The members of the profession have not even proven proof against the pre vailing trouble, and a number of them are reported on the sick list.' It is the general opinion in the med loal professin that the epidemic is due to the - peculiar oliinatio conditions which have prevailed this f ill, the sum mer weather haviug been succeeded by extreme cold weather, without the in tervention of the umA period of In. dian summer, which has always served as a kind cf "letting down" period between the heated spell and the ad vent of winter. The return to summer temperature, that prevailed for several days a week or so ago and which was immediately followed by cold and dampness, had the effect of largely in. creasing tbe number of cases. , fovsl ciaos say that tbe epidemic will dlsap pear with tbe advent of dry, cold bracing weather. So far, the mortall ty in the diplheriatio oases has been below the average. HB SAW NAPOLEON. An Actor Ninety-Three Years of Age Celcbrat Ing His Birth Anniversary To-day. London, EngUnd, November 27. The oldest living actor in the world celebrated bis ninety-third birthday at Plymouth this week, and the event was made the occasion of a flood of congratulations from members of the profession, and of a reception tendered by some of bis fellow townsmen His name is Henry Del, and for sUty.five years prior to his retirement a few years ago, he hal at one time or an. other been identified with most of tbe leading English companies. Even now he occasionally takes "juvenile parts in the plays produced at tbe local tbea. ters, and is an inveterate "hrst night. er." i he preservation of bis memory is remarkable, and without reference to manuscript he can rehearse and speak parts that be took in plays that were tbe rage more than half a century ago. He also clearly recalls how when a child be was taken in a row boat to Plymouth sound, and saw tbe first Napoleon walking tbe quarter deck of the "Bellerophoo" upon which be took refuge u:et tbe battle ol Wa terloo, and which subsequently con. veyed him to his borne of exile on St Helena. Crying for Help. Madrid, Spain, November 27. General Veyler has made an urgent request for a regiment of cavalry, and they will sail for Cuba in December. Havana, Cuba, November 27 Captain General Weyler left Havana 12:30 o'clock, this morning, for Mariel. on boatd tbe Legaspi. He i accompanied by his cbn-fo'f staff ard djutant. Other members of tbe gen eral's staff left Havana by the train, this morning, for ArtemisaVi- 7 - Havana, Cuba, November 27. General Weyler returns to the "province of Pinar del Rio for the purpose of . re. nwing the campaign against tbe in surgent forces of Maoeo in that prov ince, which was begun under bis per sonal command a fortnight ago. - . Sugar Beet Culture. ' A week or so ago, Secretary , Miller re ceived a letter from . Mr, Stewart, repre senting capital In Scotland that seeks profitable investment in the United States, propounding a series of pertinent questions touching the success of the sugar beet raising experiment in New Mexico, and limiting that himself and associates ight conclude to engage ia the produc tion .and manufacture of sugar beets in is sunny and resourceful region, says tbe New Mexican. Mr. Miller promptly referred Mr. Stew art's letter to Mr. A. C. Campbell.of Eddy, one of the actire promoters of the Pecos Irrigation and Improvement company, and he received a very complete and satis factory reply thereto. Mr. Campbell in telligently and fully answers tbe ques tions seriatim and accompanies his reply with carefully prepared bine-prints and much printed Information regarding tbe soil, olimate and water supply of the Pecos valley. . ' The importance of this correspondence will be realized wben It Is understood tbat the Scotch syndicate mentioned contem- ates an investment of 750,000 in the sugar beet industry. ';. -.

The Michigan passenger association seriously considered a proposition to issue inter-cbaogeable mileage books, recently, good on every road in the state. Governor- elect Plogree's announcement tbat be would flint tor a two-oent-a-mile rata is tbe only cause for this, Captain Derby, representing the United States, and Benor Tbarrata, chief engineer of .the international dam company, for Mexico, have agreed upon a report recom- meodlng the construction of a dam and reservoir across tbe Kio Grande at El Paso for the storage of flood waters for Irriga tion purposes. General Manager Frey, of tbe Atchison, was also there in consulta tion with Colonel Anson Mills, United States boundary commissioner, relative to tbe cost of moving the Atchison track back from tbe river to tbe foothills, to get tbe road out of tbe way of tbe reservoir, which is to be twenty-seven miles long and fit- teen miles wide. It Is understood tbat General Mills and Mr, Frey agreed on moving tba tracks. Tbe management of the Atcblson rail way has settled upon another Important contraot which will place thousands of dollars In circulation.
