Fonr 1)on00(:, Ia.. June 20.- An eye witness of Tuesday's flood who has just arrived from Cherokee, states it is neces- .1 sary for one to see to have the least idea of the great amount of damage done. "Why," he exclaimed, "it is simply ter ribly wonderful the way that imnuense hady of water swept things before it. houses were but iubtbles on its crest. I was at Cherokee when the cloud burst came and in less time thaji it tabes to tell it the tisel wais upon the town. IHoises were seen to tremble, swing half 1aroun11 aniti e t arritO along by the i torriits. iTre-s were beit l li Lrokin like reeds and not ia thing couli stop the t territic(na tiwrd rush of water and all this occurred before the people could p ossibly realize what had happened. The Inist remarkable feature of the disaster is that any of the people in the track of the tilod esiaped with their lives. As far as I know no lives were lost at Cherokee and the immediate vicinity." The storm rendered between three hundred and four hundred families homeless in and about Cherokee. 'Thhese were being cared for in the Masonic, G. A. IR. and Knights of Pythias halls at Cherokee. The Illinois Central's loss is 12,077 feet of road bed and 97 feet of piling. This does not include the bridge I taken out over the Sioux river. Theii amount of damage will reach a quarter of a million dollars. A DEVASTATING FLOOD. A Town in Iowa Nearly Swept Away amu (treat Iaumage bone Elsewhere. Hoo8s, Iowa, June 20.--At the Chi cago & Northwestern headquarters in this city was received today the tirst di rect news from the scene of the floods on the Maple River branch of the road. The dispatch is from the operator at Moville, and says the town is almost wiped out. Water runs into the depot windows and is up to the ceilings of all the buildings. All the houses in the flat portion of the town have been swept away and the rail road turn-table is washed from its place. There are miles of track gone between Moville and Kingsley, also most of the small bridges and the bridge over the Sioux river. This destruction is now being supplemented by another storm, raging at present in the same vicinity and extending south to the main line of the Northwestern. It is raining very hard and the storm is traveling east. An Appeal for Help. ('ii :onumi :, Is., June 26. Five hunired people are rendered homeless and destitute in this city by Tuesday's flood. The resources of the citizens have seen taxed to the utmost to meet the present requirements of these people and outside aid must be given to avert hard ship. Mayor H. D. Bloon has issued an appeal to the public for aid and tele gra lied the governor for 100 tents. Con tril utions may be sent to Mayor 1lmoan who will ackwwledge receipt and place It in the hands of a responsible execu tive cotnmittee which has been appointed to distribute aid. A FATAL CYCLONsE. It Dashes a Buiding to Pleae. and Kills Several Alen. MourT CARnEL, Pa., June 20.- The Patterson Coal company breaker, located at Natalic village, two miles north of thes city. was destroyed by a cyclone this afternoon and the following persons were killed: J. N. Blossom, Hawley. Pa., J. Bently Dodeon, Mickshiny, Pa., Richard Roberts, Luzerne, Pa., Wm. Lodge Luz erne, an Italian unknown and another stranger, all still under the debris. The breaker was located on the summit of a big mountain about 1,600 feet above the sea level. It ran almost due east and west. The structure was 300 feet in length and the highest point was 165 feet Lodge Roberts and two unknown men were slaters and were engaged in rooting the breaker at the time of the accident. The other men killed were carpnters and met their death while employed at work on the interior of the breaker. Shortly after noon the sky in the north became black and the darkiess grew in tense. The men perched on their high tower gazed on the advancing storm ex pecting to come down in tine to avoid the rain. A flsasi of lightning illumined the horizon, a thunder-peal shaking the ground followed, ).nd the next minute a terrible wind-gust gathered up the mighty structure as though it was a feather. and, whirling it around, dashed it to ruin. The men were mangled al mot beyond recognition. The breaker was one of the largest in the region, its cupliit) being about 40,0t0) tons per month. The cost of erection exceeded $100x,i0. The loss falls on Wilkesharre, Pittaburg, and Philadelphia capitalists. TUN MtIBMOiRI lItElt, It Is Within 11I Inehes of the Highest Point iteached in to Years. Sir. Josi-ti, Mo., June 2).- The river has risen steadily since Saturday and at noon today is within sixteen inches of the highest point reached in ten years and is still rising. If the river should overflow the French bottoms it is ex pected a new channel will be cut through leaving many farms on an island and diverging the stream from the Kansas shore two miles. If the present rate of rise continues twenty-four hours the stock yards and hundreds of houses in South St. Joseph will be inundated. The situation is serious as to the packing interests as well as to hundreds of small farmers on the low lands.

Parnell added the church t ceremnny wou'di s celebrated in lh ton In so soon as he and Mrs. Parnell were able c to put in a fortnight's residence there. This would probably be after the elec tions at Carlow for the successor in t in parliament to the late Ot'orman t Mahon. Parnell also, referring to the t religions ceretmony which is to take place in Iondon, said that in the event of his case he would do his beat to pre- F vent mutsiders from being present. i "especially reporters," lie added with ai smile. I Asked if he intended to take an active I part in the Carlow election. Parnell re- I plied: "I shall certainly go to Carlow. in t fact, I start tomorrow night if I can pos- r sibly manage to do so. I am eonnident I that we shall win." This election, it may be stated, is the I only election since the O'Shea divorce i proceedings in which Parnell has had a chance of winning. He will take Mr.. I Parnell with him to Carlow if he can I possibly do so, but Mrs. Parnell is known to be a bad sailor und, on the other hand she is compelled to remain near her law yers owing to the coming trial of the will suit in which she and her brothers I are interested in respect to the Elthtnttu piroperty. Parnell intends in future to devote special attention to the Irish industrial question in which he is more interested than any other question at present. He cently Parnell has given a general stilt port to Balfour's Irish land hilt, believing that it is a well conceived mnisure and that it will be well carried out Parnell believes the measure referred to will greatly benedit both Irish tenants and Irish land owners. In conclusion Par nell said he intends if possible to visit the I'nited States during the comiing atoutnun. lie is of the opinion that the sentiment of the Irish and Irish-Aiteri cans on the other side of the Atlantic is in his favor, conseqiuently Parnell will I try to attend the Irish national eonven tiot to be held at Baltimore, Md., during the fall. Whnn Parnell was asked a hat he thought would le the political effect of his marriage to Mrs. O'Shea. he said he had not given the question thought and did not intend to think what the effect of his marriage would he. Hle and his wife, Parnell 'xplained. were perfectly happy, and he was now experiencing greater happiness than ever previously during the entire course of his life. The reporter with whom Parnell had this in terview adds: 11 never saw Parnell in a more healthy coitttion or better spirits." P.SHINELi'a STANDING. His Friends Think With His Moral Posi tion Assured ils Political Ieotrra lion is only a Matter of Time. (Copyright 1S111 by New York Atsociated Press. I Loaxnu, June 2-.- Mr. and Mrs. Par nell entertained some friends yesterday evening at Walsingham Terrace and re ceived today several intimates. Parnell has sent greeting to a number of adher ents in the house of cor.nuons expressing pleasure that the prolonged period of suspense is over and thanking theni for their steadfast friendship during his troubles. He writes tinder apparent conviction that his marriage will rapidly enable him to be reinstated as I risk leader in parliament. A strong impres sion prevails in the same direction in the house of commons in spite of the know ledge of the fact that the Catholic clergy will not accept the marriage as cola d ing his offense. English liberals ire ready to hail him as the man doing his best to atone for his faults. Parnellites tonight did not ripire to sound the opinion of members on th marriage. Fronm every side congratulu tions poured in unsolicited on their I moral rehabilitation. Friends in the house of colmmions have sent to IIrighIto an invitation to Parnell to make in early appearance in the house of con uoms. when his entree is likely to be greetel with cheers. If the feeling in parliament reflects the sentiment of the country the marriage will become a big political event. No immediate restoration of con fidence between Parnell and the liberal leaders is possible, nor is it probable the faction feud will end without long oppJi sition from some of his now irreconcila ble enemies; but the marriage has de prived his foes of one of their nost p' tent weapons of attack. His moral po sition assured political restoration. it is generally believed, becomes it matter of time. The future plans of Mr. and Mrs. Par nell indicate that after a period of seculsion it is their intention to enlarge their social life. Mrs. Parnell talks of leaving Brighton and taking a large house in London. If she wins the pro bate suit she will be rich and able to entertain. Those knowing her best say she aims to form a political and artistic salon to create which she has capacities equal to her ambition. It has long been known she has been a valuable poli tical ally of Parnell with whom she has discussed every turn of affairs more in timately than with any member of his party. It can be predicted with certainty that under her open guidance Parnell will immediately modify his taities. In he fight with the McCarthyites reconcil iotion will he the watchword. The tirst contest Carlow will he fought on the I Parnelite side with greater attention to larsonil amenities. A letter from E. Dwyer (iray indicates this change. He renews his appeal for a reconciliation and urges that the Carlow contest be fought on both sides in such a way as will not he used hereafter as an argument against the capacity of Irishmen to adjust their own domestic and national affairs. Mc Carthy has practically withdrawn from the leadership of his party. TEl1tRIVIC IPOWH)ER EXPLOSION. Liglhtnaiug (Saune. the Eixploainn of Two Thouaind Kegs of Powder. t.11.viaiiro. Tex.. June 2(.

Don Pedro .lontt. the ('hilian congressional envoy. allowed another day to puss without making his appearance at the executive mansion or department of state. It now begins to appear the mission with which Senor Montt and his asssciates are in trusted is regarded as a failure in so far as their official recognition by the United States government is concerned, and it is i probable they will be received in any cupacity either officially or unofficially by any executive officer of the govern tment. A person well versed in diplomatic precedents and thoroughly aequainted with the history of the department of state this afternisn said the reason for the adoption of this course by our gyv ernnment was broader than any of the questions involved in the present case and was founded upon it uniform line of precedents running hack to the dalt of the civil war. Early in the history of the reltellion the oonfederaey sent represt tatives to Loandon auni Paris to e ( tare recogniiun for their cause. Se ward. then sicretary of state, preatpily instructed Ad.ais and Dayton. United States ministers ait London and I'iris resjetirely.to notify the governments of I reat itritan and Prance that the recep tion of these inifederate agents either olleidly or privattily. would be regarded by the United states its a elitist for the breaking otf of diplimittiv reiations. Further than this Seward refused to re eyive thte joint notes of the British tntd French ministers referring to the state Iof the civil war in theli United States anil undertaking that their governments should iit strietly as neutrals. The I secretary's rejoinder to this lhit state mett was that the governments could only nat ts friends of the anitted States. later on Seward refused to utll any in terecturse with Emperor Muximnilian.then siriuingto establish his empire in Mexico or even to receive from hli a letter of condolence on the death of President Lincoln. So it has been the uniform custom of the United States government. and the custom which will not in the judgnient of diplomates te broken in the case of the (hilian insurgents, to refuse to rec ognize the revolutionary tittvetitents in Ameritan republies. It is said in dipli muatic circles that this custom is founded upon good jplicy and tends to conserve American interests. Revolutions amung our neighbors on this hemisphere. it is asserted. obstruct commerte. injure American residents at disturbed Istints, and bring about untold compliiations. so that good policy dictates an adherence to an established government as long its it can maintain itself in power. which. it is assumed, it can not longer do against the will of the majority of the people.
