St. Ci.airsvii.i.k, O., April 16.—St.
Clairsvillc to-day presents the appearance
of s town that had yesterday beeu played
upon by sheila from a hostile army. Here
»od there a wall has beeu thrown inward,
leaving the building and itn content» a
crumbled mass of brick, mortar, fur
niture and debris of all kinds.
The roofs of sym« houses have
been crashed in, ami more bave been lifted
and now cumber the streets, other build
ings have Iteen wrenched and twisted ou
their fouudatiou as if by a vorticose earth
quake. The sides of some frame buildings
are punctured and shattered as if they bad
been standing against tattering rain*. The
glass from brokeu wiudows lines the pave
ments. Broken street lamps are scattered
about and
FALI.KX [l.MHtCKS
and rubbish obstruct the streets. Every
where one looks, from the place where the
stonn blast struck the western part ot the
town, along the path up Maiu street, over
Marietta street, on till it passed over the
Fair Ground out of town, are to be seeu
scattered almost all kinds of debris imag
inable filched from within and without
houses and barns or wrenched
from fences and trees. The cycloue is St.
Clairsville's great communist, leveltug
down and taking one man's possessions aud
tearing them upoti another man's prem
ises. »
The town to day was thronged with
hundreds of visitors, coming iu from the
surrounding couutry and from adjoiuiug
towns to look upon the wreck. Mauy
Wheeling people bave been among the
number. An excursion party from Wbeel
iug cumedown this afternoon aud returned
this evening.
THK PKOPI.K
who have snôered losses are not sittiug
dowu lamenting over spilt milk. Every
body is at work to-day cleauing out ruit
bish aud rootiug and repairing bis house
aad has his more tortunate neighbors help
ing him. It is welt that the storm has not
been followed by heavy rains, as such
would have greatly increased the damage
aud iuconveuieuce from the rootless
I bouses. The
ESTIMATE OK THE LOOSES,
«iveu ia your columns yesterday. was a
pretty fair one. The lows to shade trees,
shrubbery, leu ce* und the like, cau uot
well he estimated iu money value. The
three-story Welday hank building has two
stories blown off and is one of the worst
wrecks ou Main street. The whole of the
l*atterson block is unrooted. The hnildiug
occupied by the t!az>tt>- was so badly
wrecked that the remuants of the press
and tixtures have been removed to other
quarters, aud the paper will now
appear as before. Several families
bave liad to sei-k shelter MMng their
neighbors. Citizen* who have escaped the
storm are cbeeriully lendum thaw assist
ance to tlmse iu need. A considerable
Ibrce of Wheeling men are at work iu roof
ing aud repairing building. The telegraph
company has a considerable force ol men
at work putting up the fallen poles and
wires and all wdl soon lie ready for use.
THE WolNHEH
are all doing well. Mr. John Riley's in
juries seem to he the worst. Wheu he saw
the storm coining he tied from the house
taking his mother, who was in feeble
health, with him to seek a place of safety,
lie reach a tree near the house and held
ou to it, being blown round aud rouud the
tree with hi* mother. The tree was snapped
by the tore« of the wind,struck Mr. itiley
crushing hLs ankle so that he will have to
liave it amputate aud seriously iujuring
bim about the chest. It is almost a miracle
that more were uot inured. The town
authorities are doing what they can to
secure the safety of the exposed property
and the comfort of those whose homes are
wrecked.
Strang« Ca«« of Hulelilv.
Lkxixqton, im, April it;.—J. W.
Middleton, with bis two sou*, went to the
woods to tell some trees, near Austin, yes
terday. They selected a very large tree
j aud begau chopping until it commenced to
totter, wheu the word was given to iuu.
I'he two boys retired, aud wheu they had
readied a place ot safety, they turned to
look aud saw their father with folded arms
standing directly under the falling tree.
The sous yelled to him to ruu, but bepuid
uo attention to their cries and in auothcr
instant was buried beneath the tree. The
youug meu were so frighteued that thev
left the woods iu threat haste and gave the
alarm, aud within a short time the place
w here the old man was lying was sur
rounded by au e\cited crowd- The log
was rolled away, but only a pile of blood
tie» pattered clothes. Iles h aud bones was
found. The coroner failed to tind a cause
for the terrible deed. Mr. Middleton was
a deacon in the Methodist church.
Clot «laud's Muulrlpal SeiiMttion.
CLEVELAND, O., April 10.—A sensation
was created here to-day by Republicans
who claim that the present Board ol' Alder
men, elected two years ago, is entirely
without authority to legislate or per
form any of the functious of such
body. The bill creating the Iward
(Kissed the General Assembly late in
the session. It ia alleged that it provides
tor the election of aldermen, bnt tails to
give tbem any power save to elect a presi
dent and vice president to preside over
»hem. The Hoard of Conncilmen is Repub
lican, while the Hoard of Aldermen is Dem
ocratic, and in joint session, Democrats
have a majority. It is now claimed that
the election was illegal, and if such is the
case the Republican* will continue in
charge of the principal city offices.

Kamor Set A tloat.
PlTTSBt'BO, Pa., April 16.—It is quite
probable that uo hearing will be held tit
the cas«« of the Panhandle robbery, un
M outlay. More than ball'or tbe prisoners
bave already waived a preliminary bearing
for trial, and it in believed the other* will
take tbe saute action. This will enable tbe
defendant« to get their cases I »t fore tbe
(«rand Juty in time for ihe present term of
Court. Within tbe past tweuty-four hours
a number of tbe prisoners have made vol
untary coulessions to tbe attorneys of tbe
railroad company, but tbe natnre of tbe
dim-losares bave not been given to the pub
lie. It is claimed, however, that they
tally almost with the facts .19 learned
by tbe detectives in their researches.
It is thought that before the trial comes otl
nearly ail tbe men will have admitted
their part iu the robbery. Another and
very
IMPORTANT ARRKST
was made to-day. II. C. Busby, who
escaped from tbe officers at Denn won, O.,
on Mooday, by jumping from a train, was
recaptured this morning and lodged iu
jail. He is regarded by the detectives as
one of tbe ringleaders. Conductor Black,
who has been since released ou bail, re
turned to the city this morniug, and is
ready to stand trial.
A SENSATIONAL REPORT.
An aftcruoou paper to-day publishes a
sensational item in wuich it is stated that
a secret meetiug of employes of the 1'au
Handle road was held last night to con
sider a bold and decisive move to force
their railway associates to some kind of
compromise. It U proposed to demanda
guarantee that no further arrests will be
made, and all men now employed on the
road be completely exonerated from any
complicity in the alleged thefts.
Should these guarantees not be
forthcoming, the men decline to
enter again îuto the compauy 's service un
der suspicious resting on them until all
tbe cases are settled. Demauds will also
he made respecting certain parties of those
under arrest claimed to be innocent of tbe
charges against tbeui.and respecting others
a guarautec that they wiiK not be kept iu
jail all summer, but that they would be
tried immediately. If the demand is not
complied with a strike will be ordered aud
all trams will be sidetracked. Tweuty
four hours' notice will be given of tbe in
tention to strike. Another meeting will
be held to-night or to-morrow when deti
nite action will be decidcd on. Tbe paper
claim* that their authority for the story is
beyoud question.
l>LEURO-PXKUMOXIA.
Thu Government Authorized lu l'ito Force
to Kill the I'Ugue
W.VSHlNüTüX, April Iti.—The Commis
sioner of Agriculture has issued a new set
of rules governing the operations of the
department in the suppression and extirpa
tion of pleuro-pneumouia and other infec
tious disease«.
The Chief of the Bureau of Animal In
dustry is required to send inspectors to
points where he has reason to believe aoy
contagious disease of cattle exists. The
inspector id required in case he tiuds the
disease actually exists to impose temporary
quarantine, notifying the owuers and
warning them not to remove the quaran
tined animals under the penalties imposed
by Congress.
j The Chief is also required to report to
the Commissioner whenever he Is satisfied
that contagions diseases exist iu a locality
and there is dauger of its spreading to
other States and Territories, whereupon
the Commissioner will quarantine that
locality, cause the diseased animals to be
slaughtered aud the infected premises to
he disinfected. Should auy animal he
permitted to go iuto such premises betöre
the disinfection is officially declared com
plete, a second disinfection will l>e orderet]
at the expense of the owner.
All quarautiued animals will lie regard
ed as affected with contagious disease, and
auy person removing them from the in
fected district will lie prosecuted. The
Chief of the Bureau may cause exposed
animals to be slaugbted whenever it is
deemed necessary to prevent the spread of
the disorder from one State or Territory to
another, fiovision is made (or tl|e ap
praisal of and payment for slaughtered
animals.
Whenever it Is deemed necessary by the
Chief of the Bureau to snpervise and in
spect any lines of transportation doiug
busiuess in more tlian oue State, and the
boat«, cars aud stockyards in connection
therewith, he is required to designate suit
able iusiicctors and make ueceftsary regu
lations-tor the quarantine and disinfection
of such boats, cars aud stock yards as arc
suspected of lieiug affected with disease.
Whenever auy inspector is prevented or ob
structed or interfered with iu the perform
ance of his duty he is required to call
upon the police authorities for aid and
protection, and, if this is denied, he is then
to call upon the United States Marshal for
force and to tile iu formation with the Dis
trict Attorney.
Shottld it be found impossible to enforce
these rules iu auy State, the Commissioner,
if he thinks the exigency requires it, will
declare the Stite in quarantine, and auy
person removing auimais therefrom, except
upon a certificate of an inspector of the
Bureau, will lie prosecuted. All previous
roles aud regulations .-»re revoked. The
circular bearing this code of ii|les contains
also a copy of the acts of Cougress upou
which they are hased.

THEY PLEAD WATER COMPETITION
To fccape the Long and Short Haul Classe
of the Law.
Washington, D. C., April 16.—Quite a
large percentage ol" the letters received by
the Idter-SUte Commisniou are ou irrele
vant subjects.
Une man asks that the Pennsylvania au
thor! tie« be prevented from collecting a tax
imposed on him for selling goods by »ample
for Eastern manufacturers. Another claims
that unless be gets a lower railroad rate on
his refrigerators he won't be able to make
a profit.
Mr. H. C. Cutumiogs appeared to-day on
behalf of the Louisville, New Orleans and
Texas and the Newport News aud Missis
sippi Railroad. He stated that both roads
had serions water competition: that he be
lieved, under the Inter-State law, the
roàd had a right to charge less lor a
longer than fora shorter distance, because
dissimilar conditions existed aud they
were so charging. If they were in error,
they wanted to be so instructed by the
Commission, and they would then apply
for exemptions from the action of the fourth
clause.
Couusel appeared before the Commission
and asked exemptiou from the fourth sec
tion for the Wisconsin Central liues of
railroads.
A priuted petition has been received by
the Commission
FROM THK IOWA BARB STREI. WIRE CO ,
of Marshalltown, Iowa, stating that up to
the first of the present mouth that com
pany has bad au equalized rate "of freight
charges upon its receits aud shipments;
that is through rates from Chicago to the
Missouri river, being 25 cents, tht com
pany has paid 15 cent« for bringing it«
raw material from Chicago to Mar
shalltowu at 10 cents for transportation of
it« finished product from Marshal ltowti to
Missouri. I'nder this arrangement it has
built up a reasonably profitable business ol
$400,000 a year, has given employment to
a large uumber of mechanics aud laborers
aud contributed mnch to local prosperity
by furuLshiug the home market for farm
ing products. The railroad company, fear
ing the penalties ol the law, aud not hav
ing any decision of the Commission sanc
tioning this equalized rate, has now sus
pended arrangement, aud has made rates
from Chicago to Marshalltown and from
Marshalltown to places of cousignmeut of
the company's goods which are enormously
higher than the rates from Chicago to such
places of consignment. As a result of this
action petitioner must either snft'er great
FINANCIAL I.OS9, OK SUIT DOWN
its factories and discharge its employes.
The margin in business has for some years
been very close; the company is carryiug a
large stock and the season of the greatest
consumption is at hand. The system of
makiug equalized rates has lieen customary
in the Northwest aud the (N-titioners' case
is represented as similar to that of hun
dreds of other establishments. The |>eti
tioner therefore asks that the system be
sanctioned or the operation of the law lie
suspended until such time as the subject
can be investigated.

THE PROHIBITIONISTS
to Warm I p at Parkernburg—
The l-atemt New*.
.Sprein/ IHeywm to the Su win y Rrgidtr.
Pabkek.sui.-bu, W. Va., April Iti.—The
Prohibitionists are beginning work in earn
est, hi this community at least, aud those
who are opposed to the adoption of the
AaMsdmeot should not deceive themselves
by any vaiu hope that the enemy is rent
in*. It is the intention, as your corre
spondent has gathered from conversation
with the leading Prohibitionists here, and
IheM are none more outspoken and deter
mined in the State, to make a hot, vigor
ous «uupaign from now until the night of
election in November, 1888. All avenues
of communication are to he worked. The
rtcboal house and the church, the religious
conclave and the jtolitical convention, the
Teacher«' Institute and the Farmers' Club
am all to be used for all that can lie got
oufcof them to make votes tor the amend
ment A mitral committee, cntu|>o9ed of
the following persons lutve beeu select
ed: First Seuatorial District, George W.
Atkinson; Second, George W. Kinsey;
Third, David McGregor; Fourth, Dave D.
John-on; Fifth, J. L. Hensley; Sixth,
Thortms F. Hodges; Seventh, William M.
Reynolds; Fighth, C. H. Payne; Ninth,
Robert J. Simpson; Eleventh P. R. Rey
nolds; Tweltth, T. Ii. Carskadon; Thir
teenth, Miss Flora R. Siler.
The following compose the State Central
Committee: Dave D. Johnson, of Wood,
Chairman; Geo. W. Atkinson, of Ohio;
Jas. H. Ferguson, of Kanawha; Wni. A.
Strickler, of Ritchie; Mrs. M. M. Snow, of
Wood.
No party lines are drawn here, and it is
on the ground of nou-partisan efforts that
the Prohibitionists expect to win. Refore
long the State is to he entered at all quar
ters by prominent male and female Prohi
bition speakers, among whom will lie
ex-Senator Colquitt, of Georgia; Miss
Francis |Willard, Senator Rlair, of
New Hampshre; Dr. Leonard, of
Ohio, and, if possible, Senators Maxcy
and Reagan, of Texas. So far there has
la-en no formal announcement that St.
John is to be here. He is too bold a fraud
to be recognized now by the wiseatuoug the
Prohibitionists, aud the State will doubt
less be spared the inllictiou ot his pres
ence.
It is now generally understood that
both the Gas Company and the Electric
Light Company will take the case just
decided to the Supreme Conrt of Appeals.
In the meantime the Electric Company
are working like heavers puttiug in poles
aud up wires. The company expect to
have the lights turned on by the tli»t of
July and perhaps sooner.
The eloping couple reported a few days
ago have made this city their home. The
yonng lady is a daughter of Chas. Knott,
ot Jefferson county, and her husband is
Wm. Reazley, for a year past a fireman on
the Ohio River railroad. The marriage
was quite romautic, as the young lady, to
overcome the obstacles interposed by her
uuwilling parents, had to flee to this city,
w hen she was met by Reazley.
At the last meeting of the City Council,
in response to the petition of Capt. Muhle
man, of the Andes, the following ordinance
was passed: That the wharfage rate for
through passeuger steamers from Cincin
nati aud Charleston to Wheeling and Pitts
burg, lying at the wharf, shall lie $1.25
for every tweuty-four hours or fractiou
thereof.
The latest railroad project for Parkers
burg is the annouueed change in the ter
minus of the Cincinnati, Daytou and Hai
ti more railroad (a brauch of the H. AO.)
from Pomeroy, Ohio, to Belpre just across
from J^us city. The line has been surveyed
und work Itegins at once. It will follow
the Ohio river, on the < >hio side, anil he a
competing line for the Ohio River road. It
will eventually give the people of this sec
tion another road to Cincinnati.

They Can Agree.
Cll K'AOO, A (nil 1U.—The strikt' of the
i-arpenters was practically declared off this
morning.
The F.xceu^ive Hoard of the Central
Council men met at an early hour aut] dis
missed the outlook
The result wiw that an order was is
sued to the men to resume work ou Mou
ilay for all the bosses who will pay 35
i-ents an hour, and make the working day
fight hours.
The strikers have been uotified of this
decbtiou through the walking delegates
and by all other means which their officers
liave at their disposal.
"This is not a sudden resolve on our
part, nor is it the result of fear for the ont
L-oiqe of a protracted struggle," said Chuir
luau 1'urks to a reporter to day.
"We prepared this order yesterday after
uoon," he continued, "before we sent our
ultimatum to tho Masters' Association.
We could keep our men out for months
yet if so desired, but we thought it better
to try to settle thews difficulties at ouce.
So men will go to work to-day, but by
Monday noon I think it can be snrely said
that nearly all of them will be wielding
the saw aud hammer at 35 Centn an hour
They waqt it understood that we do not
consider that we yield to ?ny organization.
l>ur agreement with the new association is
perfectly satisfactory to Iwth parties, and
is drawn up t<> meet the present circum
stances. No, it will not lie necessary for a
boss to belong to a new organization of
bosses in order toget men to work '(>r him.
AU that vye retire is eight hour* a day at
cents per honr."

I'lTTSHi R«i, Pa., April 16.—The notion
if the Move manufacturer* in Irving to

price of their wares. Master Workman
lia vie, of the K. of U, who is a memlter of
the International Moulders, »ays the man
ufacturers have lieen preparing for a strike
