Gloucester, N. J., June 30.— At 1:10
this afternoon a wind storm of cyclonic
character struck this city from the
southwest, doing great damage to prop
erty, killing two people and injuring
three others severely. The killed are:
Patrick Highlands, aged fifty years, of
Robert S. Hamilton, fifty-five, of Glouces
The injured: Mrs. Robert Hamilton, wife
of Robert Hamilton, foot badly crushed;
Mary Hamilton, daughter of Robert Hamil
ton, seiiously injured about the body and
limbs: Patrick Iliggius, severe contusions iv
For an hour or more before the storm
burst threatening clouds tilled the west
ern sky to the zenith, an occasional
flash of lightning rending them from
top to bottom. The air was close and
heavy, and the light wind that was
blowing sent the clouds before it with
hardly a preceptible movement. By 1
o'clock the heavens were almost coy*
ered, and the people began to hurry to
wards places of safety. Shortly after 1
o'clock a few persons who were on the
beach were panic stricken by seeing a
black cloud of the
rushing across the river in a southwest
erly direction from the Pennsylvania
shore. With almost incredible swift
ness the cyclone bore down towards
this city. The cloud did not approach
with any great forward movement, but
bounded from the water m leaps like a
gigantic football. Th'a path of the cy
cloid .'. was about 300 feet wide, and
whenever it struck the water it lashed
it into foaming waves. Fortunately no
ships were in the path of the wind,' and
it wasted its fury upon the river itself.
In 'the meanwhile people upon the
beach rushed for shelter. Some jumped
into the river.and as the cyclone passed'
over them they dove beneath the sur- |
face. Patrick Highlands was among
those on the beach. He ran towards
Frombogen's pavilion. The wind, how
ever, was close on his heels, and as he
dashed into the building the cyclone
struck it. There was a crash of falling
walls, and Highlands fell dead across
the doorway with his brains beaten out
by a heavy girder. Standing behind the
bar within a few feet of where the
lleeine Ilighlaads was struck down was
one of the -bartenders. Girders, joists
and roofing fell all around him, but he
Adjoining Frombogen's on the south,
is Haggerty's saloon. The pavilion
saved it from destruction, but the cor
rueated iron roof was taken off as com
pletely as if «to'.ie by a roofer. With
what remained of Frombogen's and
Eaggerty's roof in its grasp, the wind
rushed on to more destruction, sufiering
and death. A toboggan and some
patent swings received part of the
debris from the clou 1, and were totally
Killed in His Home. *
. Three hundred feet behind Frombo
geii's was the humble home of Kobert
Hamilton. Hamilton and his wife and
daughter were about to sit down to din
ner. With appalling suddenness the
greater part of Froinbogen's pavilion
was hurled upon the house, crushing it
to the ground. Hamilton was instantly
killed and his wife and daughter badly
injured, and will be crippled for life. •
After completing the destruction of
Hamilton's house the. wind swept on to
the southward, tearing up trees and
fences, but fortunately no more build
ings were in its path.
Within ten minutes after the destruc
tion by. the wind the sun was shining,
and the gay crowds of men and women
who Jill this place , were laughing and
jesting as usual.
QUAKER CITY STRUG K.
"A Colored Man Killed and Several
Philadelphia, Pa., June 30.—Be
tween 1 and 2 o'clock today a "terrific
thunder and lightning storm, accom
panied by torrents of rain and a heavy
wind, passed over the city, doing con
siderable damage to houses and trees,
killing one man and injuring several
others. When the storm broke John
.Jenkins, a colored man, and three white
men were working in a brick yard.
They U«,k refute from the rain beneath
a shed and stood watching the storm.
Suddenly a blinding sheet of flame
seemed to envelop Jenkins.and a strong
sulphurous odor filled the air. Jenkins
stood perfectly rigid for a moment, and
then fell back on the floor dead. The
same bolt of Lightning, after striking the
colored man. passed from him to his
companions,' shocking each one in suc
cession. None. of the three, however,
was seriously injured, and this even
ing they had nearly recovered from the
effects of the stroke.
A great number of trees were blown
down throughout the city, and a num
ber of houses were unroofed. A house
in course of construction was blown
down, and a workman named John
• "Mercer had his leg broken by the walls
falling on him. The roof of a house on
Geisler street was blown off, and its
owner, Mrs. Ella Sigrnan, was struck by
it and badly injured. A boy named
Whittaker was picking cherries when
the wind struck the tree in which ne
was perched, and he was thrown to the
'ground, receiving a broken arm. In
addition to the injured mentioned sev
. eral people received bruises and contu
sions from Hying bricks and limbs of
trees. _ __

FOUR BURIED ALIVE.
A. Bursting Water Pipe Drowns
Providence, R. 1., June 30.— Four
men were killed while at work this aft
ernoon laying the stone abutments to a
bridge under the Road street in this
city. The bank above them caved
in, completely burying alive Pat

dirt until the face of one was visible.
He opened bis eyes, blew the dirt from

THOUSANDS ARE OUT.
The Homestead Mills Shut Down
and Lock Out the Em
Confidence of the Men Shown to
Well Founded by a L<atc
Homestead, Pa., June 30.— Every
employe, of Carnegie, Phipps & Co., at
their Homestead mills, is idle today, ex
cept the mechanics and day laborers
who are engaged on repairs. At 10
o'clock 3,000 workmen assembled in
open meeting at the opera house and
thoroughly canvassed the situation
The meeting was orderly, and the sev
eral addresses counseled moderation
and strict observance of the law. A
resolution was adopted that during the
lock-out the men of the Amalgamated
association should not be permitted to
leave the town without a special permit
from the lodge officials, under penalty
of dismissal from the organization.
Another resolution was unanimously
adopted that the day laborers and me
. chanics should be called out tomorrow
morning. Committees were appointed
to watch the trains and entrances to the
town to prevent the importation of out
"side workingmen. The Amalgamated
workmen were sworn in as special offi
cers by the burgess, and will aid in pre
serving order. The locked-out men an
ticipate the arrival of Pinkerton men',
and are prepared to welcome them.

subject. Eiirht effigies of the proprie

Pittsbukg, Pa., June 30.— The scales
under which the members of the Am
algamated association have been work
ing for the past year expired at mid
night with a condition of affairs con
fronting both manufacturers and
workers that has not occurred in recent
years. The scale to govern wages in
the iron and steel mills employing
union men for tne year commencing to
morrow remains not alone unsigned,
but exhibits such a wide divergence in
the prices demanded by each side as to
place a settlement very far off, and
probably difficult to arrive at.
The firm front presented by. the Iron
manufacturers and workers was broken
at 10 o'clock last night by the manufact
urers, who made a request for another
conference with the scale committee of
the Amalgamated association. The re
quest was at once granted, and the con
ference will probably be held tomorrow.
This action of the manufacturers is re
garded as favorable to a settlement.
Pamperin Is Seated.
Rochester, June 30.— Judge Start
today gave a decision in the well-known
Lad Pamperin election contest. In
March, 1891, Ladu and Pamperiu were
contestants for aldermanic honors. The.
judges of election gave out that there
was a tie; this being conceded, the two
men drew lots and Pamperin, Demo
crat, lost. Later it was learned from
those who had watched the count that
an error was made at the time. Pam
perin brought suit and today a recount
was ordered, and Pamperin was found
to have been selected by two majority.
This gives the Democrats six out of
seven of the city aldermen. • %

Main Planks of the St. Louis
Pronouncement Are AH
An Emphatic Protest Against

For Moses, but Persists
Omaita, Neb., June 30.— Three of
the rival political organizations who
have hoped that the People's party
would divide over questions of prin
ciple and not be able to agree upon a
common platform of declarations will
be surprised to know that the People's
party platform is already practically
agreed upon. The leaders have been in
constant correspondence for months
past, and it is tacidly agreed tlfat the
St. Louis platform of February 22 shall
be taken as a basis, and that
the only extraneous matter to
receive consideration will be the
denunciation of the force bill, the de
mand for a broader reciprocity than is
now offered, and the condemnation of
the recent state bank plank adopted at
the national Democratic convention.
The platform, which Chairman Tau
beneck, of the national executive com
mittee, has in his pocket this evening,
and which Gen. VVeaver, Ignatius Don
nelly, Congressman Watson, Jerry
Simpson and the oilier leading spirits
of the party agree shall be adopted as
the war cry of the coming campaign, is
People's Party Platform.
First— We demand a national currency,
safe, sound and flexible, issued by the gen
eral government only, a full legal" tender for
all debts, public and private: and that with
out the use of bunking corporations; just,
equitable and efficient means of distribution
direct to the peopl», at a tax not exceeding 2
per cent, be provided, as set forth In the sub
trensury plan ot the Farmers' Alliance, or
some better system ; also by payments in dis
charge of its obligations for public improve
We demand tree and unimlitsd coinage of
We demand that the amount of circulating
medium be speedily increased to not less
than $ r 0 per capita.
We demand a graduated income tax.
We believe that the money of Uie country
should be kept as much as possible in the
hands of the people, and hence we demnnd
that all state and national revenue shall be
limited to the necessary expenses of the gov
ernment, economically and honestly admin
We demnnd that Jpostal savings banks be
established by the government for the safe
deposit of the earnings of the people and to
Land and Transportation.
Second— The land, including the natural
resources of wealth, is the heritage of all the
people and should not be monopolized for
speculative purposes; and alien ownership
of land should be prohibited. All land now
held by railroads aurt other corporations Iv
excess of their actual needs, and all lands
now owned by aliens should oe claimed by
the government aud held for actual settlers
Third— Transportation being a menus of
exchange and a public necessity, the .govern
ment should own and operate" the railroads
in the interests of the people.
The telegrapn ana telephone, like the post
oflice system, being a necessity for trans
mission of news, should be owned and op
erated by the government in the interests of
Against the Force Bill.
In addition to the above there will be
a plank which is expected to frustrate
the herculean efforts that are being ex
erted by the Democratic leaders of the
South to reclaim their ietlows from the
People's party ranks. This plank will
be a denunciation of the Republican
force bill, and it will be as ringing and
as emphatic as the arraignment by the
Democratic national convention a week
The leaders of the Independent party
have given this subject most oareful
consideration, have weighed its effect
in all its details; and they announce to
night that the die is cast, that the force
bill of the Republican party will be de
nounced as an unwarranted, dangerous
and unconstitutional iuterfereuce in
The announcement of Chairman Tau
beneck, of the national committee, that
he favors such a plank is regarded as
practically settling the matter, as Tau
beneck, being a Northern man of past
Republican affiliations, would be nat
urally expected to oppose the declara
tion, if opposition were to be encoun
tered. But Mr. Taubeneck is one of the
warmest advocates of the plank and
says it means the electoral votes of five
Southern states for the People's party
presidential candidates this fall. Taube
neck does not fear any injurious effect
in the North from an arraignment of the
force bill, because lie says the Western
states, where the People's party are
strongest in the North, have always
been opposed to the force bill. In ad
dition to condemning the force bill, the
platform will indorse the Australian
ballot law as a needed reform in all the
The ITlan IViist be Svuglit.
The man who receives from the na
tional People's party convention the
nomination for the presidency of the
United States will receive it unsought,
and it must come to him unbeckoned.
The nomination must seek the man and
not the man the nomination. Half a
dozen promiuent leaders of the great
independent movement are freely dis
cussed, but not one has yet arrived
upon the ground, and none is making
the slightest effort for that great honor
which any one might covet
The selection of a candidate is to be
the last work of the convention, and
the choice is to be made after, calm and
mature meditation. The magic of but
one name is sufficient to take this con
vention by storm, and that name will
never be mentioned within the pre
cincts of the Coliseum, if the wishes of
this great popular American are fb be
respected. Walter Q. Gresham. of In
diana, could have the nomination by
acclamation by the merest signal of as
sent, but he has forbidden his friends
to allow his name to be mentioned in
this connection, and his friends are so
loyal that they are disposed to accept
his wishes as their law.

- * The Sinews of War.
"\ Dr. J. Evans, of 'Abingdon, 111., at
the morning session presented a plea
for contributions to enable the national
committee to prosecute its work. They
needed money, not tor "blocks of five, 'l
but to keep up the contest against the
liquor traffic. The liquor : interest "gave
money freely to the old parties, and
Prohibitionists ought to .be as ready to
make a sacrifice for principles as their
; opponents were for money-getting. Dr.
Evans succeeded . in raising $20,000 in
I two hours. ... •':• -j:\f-:
\ • The reading of the report of the plat
form committee was the first thing in
: order at the afternoon session, sfnd the
convention promptly decided to limit
speeches upon it to five minutes each.
A minority report was signed by
twelve members, headed by James
Black, of Pennsylvania. Tire two re
; ports were read, and the convention was
I in a good deal of confusion ' over the
method of proceeding with its consider
ation, but. finally, on motion of ex-Gov.
St. John, the majority report was taken
lup ; section by section. There was no
; serious trouble until the ; financial and
silver planks were reached.
St. .John for Silver.
There was a warm discussion of the
merits of the silver question, St. John
and Hipp, of Colorado, championing
free coinaee, and Carskadon, of West
Virginia, opposing it. St. John ob
jected to the, resolutions of Hartz and
of the minority 'as indefinite and so
bound up with conditions as to bo
meaningless. . .
: "For God's sake, he exclaimed, don't
let's do anything that will need a com
mittee on interpretation to explain it.
Free coinage of American silver would
m ot furnish the needed relief because
the production is insufficient. We have
a 70-cent silver dollar now, because in
; iS73 congress adopted the most damnable
robbery that ■: was ". ever perpetrated.
Under Republican and Democratic rule
that system , had been continued to the
present time, and if we have a 70-cent
;' dollar it is a Democratic and a Repub
lican 70-cent dollar. The opposition to
this free silver demand of the laboring
| and farming interests finds its main
* soring in Wall street."
There was a babel of unnecessary noise
i before, a vote could be had, but "finally
; the minority report was ■ defeated on a
lisine vote. The majority plank, num
ber three, relating to finance, was then
adopted without division.'
Free' Coinage Shelved.
\\ 'The fight then came up on the fourth :
plank declaring in favor of free coinage
i off both metals. A vote was T promptly.
taken by the "states, and free coinage
got a bad knock-out. The plank was
rfcjected by a vote of ; 335 to 596.. The
result of this action is that the . third,

came up and precipitated quite a fight,
Mrs. Gougar. St.John, and the strong
anti-fusionists opposing it vigorously,
suspecting it squinted at fusion.
St. John got the floor and made a

On motion of St. John it was ordered
that the convention reassembling at 8:30
p. m. prpceed to balloting for candi
dates lor president of the United States.
Nainiiig tlie Leader.
Anxiety to get to balloting caused the
convention to fonret the usual prayer
at the opening of the night session, but
pious delegates objected strenuously to
the omission, aud when the Throne of
Grace had been properlyinvoked, the
nominating speeches promptly begau.
Ex-Gov. St. John, of Kansas, at the
request of the California delegation, was
given the floor lirst to place before the
convention the name of Gen. John Bid
well, of California. St. John assailed
the circulation of unsigned dodg
ers in the convention hail, at
tacking Gen. BidwelPs record
because the latter voted . for
the Pacific railroad land grant and
against a tax on wines years ago. The
speaker defended Gen. Bid well's action,
and answered another objection that
Bidwell might withdraw for Weaver.by
saying Gen. Bidwell would stay iv the
field until November.
Much cheering .greeted the conclusion
of Gov. St. John's address, and various
states seconded the nomination.
When Illinois was called Dr. J. C.
Evans arose. It was expected he would
nominate David ilcCulloch. but he sur
prised the delegates by saying that cir
cumstances had caused a change, and
Illinois' favorite son had retired from
the field. He seconded Bid well's nomi
nation. lowa and Kentucky did the
same thing, the reiteration growing
Damorest and Stewart.
Chairman Ward well, of the New York
delegation, announced that the state had
voted 73 for Bid well to 7 for Demorest,
but he asked llr.it an opportunity be
i given to present Demorest's name. John
• Lloyd Thomas made the nominating
'. speech. The people, he said,
■ had turned 'spontaneously to one
i man, whose name it was not
i necessary to spell before any Prohibi
> tionist; whose record it was not neces
sary to vindicate, whose political record
needed no explanation, and that man
i was W. Jennings Demorest. [Loud ap
> G. N. Grandison, a full-blooded negro
j. college protessor of North Carolina,
amid much enthusiasm seconded the
■ nomination of Demorest for a part of

L. 13. Logan, of Ohio, earnestly put in
1 nomination Gideon T. Stewart.
The official record of the ballot gave
Bidwell, 590; Demorest, 139; Stewart,

under way. The .following candi
, dates were presented: Sam Small, of
, Georgia; W. Satteriee, of Minnesota: J.
Levering, of Maryland: J. B. Cranrill,
of Texas, and Thomas Carskadon, of
West Virginia. Small withdrew before
a vote was taken, saying he was no
man's fool, and knew before he was
here many days that the ticket had been
made up. He tried, as he had previously
tried against Bid well, to break the slate
by urging Crantill in place of Levering.
The totals on the first ballot for vice
president were Loveiing, 3SO; Cranh'll,
386; . Satterlee, . 26; Carskadon. 21.
Enough changes were made before the
figures were announced to give Cranfill,
of Texas, 416 votes, 9 more than enough '
to win. i
Dr. Cranfill was called to the stage
and made a stirring address. Before
adjournment a discussion sprang up as
to the treatment of the colored dele
gates, one of them a woman, at the Cin

other Southern men favored the adop
tion of a resolution censuring the hotels,
and about 2:30 a. in. adjourned sine die.

Sax FnAxcisco, June 30.— The wl»«
warn where Joe McAu!iffe,was knocked
out by Joe Goddard tonight was packed,
fully 3,000 people being present. A
number of preliminary bouts preceded
the principal event of the evening. Joe
McAuliffe, who is well known as tne
"Mission Boy," has always been a
favorite here, while Joe God
dard, "the Barrier champion," of
Brisbane, Australia, has made
himself strong with many by his show
ing with Peter Jackson and his two de
cisive defeats of Joe Choynski. It is
estimated that 150,000 has changed
hands in this city. The odds this even
ing were 20 to 17 and 10 to 8& in God
dard's favor. Tho men fought at catch
weights, Gcddard's being given as
190 and McAuliSe's 21' J. The purso
was $5,000^ of which the loser
was to take $750. McAuliffe was sec
onded by Alex Gregtrains and Martin
Murphy, while Herbert Goddard and
Henry Gallacher were in Goddard's cor
ner. President Hiram Cook was refer
ee. The men stripped apparently in
the best condition, hard and without
superfluous flesh. Goddard appeared
small beside his bi;, boyish opponent,
but was really finely proportioned from
the hips up.
Gotidartl Quickly Floored.
Time was called at 9:07. McAullffe made
the first lead and the men clinched a couple ;
of times. Goddard rushed with his left in
the chest and right on the heart. Goddard
again rushed McAolifftß to the ropes but was
sent down with a righthander." ■"'"•.:
Round Two— Afier some fiddling Goctdard
let go his left and the men clinched. Mac
staggered him with a right bander on the
ribs, and Goddard missing a lead, Mac came
in with -both hands. McAuliffe again stopped
a rush .so forcibly, that the Australian's
right leg flew up, and the spectators hissed,
for they thought Goddard was Irving to kick
him. Hot rallies near the = ropes followed,
McAuliffe jabbinc his opponent with both
hands, while Goddard resorted to rib pouch
ing. -;-- ?.••.•.--,---.■•■.-•-,.,..:..-« :;._ ..;,... 7 ,. : i ,
liound Three— Goddard . rushed with his
left and after ■ a clinch sent Me's head back
with a lefthander. His overhand smashes
generally failed to reach, but he landed a
good left on Joes ear. Goddard then banged
him about the head, Joe slipping to the floor'
again, all but falling on his kn#ess. - ■' '■■->'■
liouud Four— Goddard ■; came up a little
winded but eager and forced the pace. Both
ducked a couple of swings cleverly. Godd
ard now showed up' better, and banged the
mission boy hard about the head.
Kound Five— Goddard had a great way of J
going under Me's guard, then giving him -
both hands in the face. This puzzled Me,
who was forced to clinch, but he got home
on a break-away and the Australian's left
eye was soon closed and bleeding. .
'»«• A (i li JtV Hard Pressed.
Round Six— Goddard was agnin the ajr
gressor; Mac flushed but confluent. Goddard
pushed him nb.out the ring and countered for
cibly on his jnw. Goddard slipped to his
knee fro.n a long drive by McAuliffe as the
Hound Seven— A right smash on Me's ribs
and left hook on the Australian's was fol
lowed by a desperate clinch. Goddard land
ed straight on Me's jaw, and a series of fruit
less swings followed Goddard lauded a
hard right swing ou Joe"s ear aud smashed
him in the chest.
Kound Kight— Goddard upper-cut Mc-
Auliffe nf:cr some fruitless swings, and long
ranee sparring followed. Goddnrd pounded
hardwith his left on Joe"s shoulders, draw
ing blood. McAuliffe got in a good right
drive iv the face as the gong sounded.
Hound Nine— McAuliffe proved something
of a disappointment to bis supporters, while
Goddard"s friends were correspondingly
tlated. The men now got to close work,
Goddard doing more forcible work and put-
UriK in a couple of telling right handere on
the ear and wind. Goddard punched Jbe in
the stomach with his left aud two right up
Kound Ten— Bets had been mideihat the
fight would not lust over ten rounds. God
dard forced McAuliffe against the ropes,
swinging his right on the jaw. .McAuliffe
seemed flurried, and the Australian rushed
him. Goddard struck the San Franciscoan a
hard back-hander on the cheek, but Mc-
Auliffe retaliated hard in the face.
Eleventh Round— Goddard forced McAu
liffe from corner to corner, making desperate
drives for his head. McAulffes temper was
aroused, and he punched the Australian bard
on the chest. Goddard paid most attention
to the body and head and seemed trying for
a knock out. McAuliffe pursued the usual
slow method of long rauge drives after
In a Wicked mood.
Round Twelve— Goddard came np evi
dently bent on finishing the San Franciscoan
ai:d banged him about the ring with both
hands. McAuliffe made more use of his left
and stopped several desperate lefts with jabs
on the month. Goddard crowded him to the
ropes, and McAuliffe resorted to clinching
to save himself.
Round Thirteen— Goddard banged Mc-
Auliffe around the ring. The Mission boy
crabbed him by the neck in a bear-like hug,
lasting over tw > seconds. Goddard coun
tered forcibly with both hands. McAuliffe
upper-cut once, but he hau apparently lost
all idea of guarding himself or making an
Rouna Fourteen— McAuliffe made a quick
lead, but Goddard countered with his left on
the jaw ' and staggered him. McAuliffe
clinched him about the necK, and Goddard
smashed him in the ribs. The Australian
then banired Mac from corner to post, send
ing him through the ropes. McAuliffe was
down several seconds, and rose with nose
bleeding. Goddard crowded and drew blood
from McAnliffes mouth. This looked to be
the end of McAuliffe.
In the fifteenth round McAuliffe was
groggy in his own corner, and Goddard sent
him to his knees with a right-hander, and
smashed him abouc the head with both
hands as he rose. Near the other cornet
McAuliffe threw in three good left stops, but
Goddard dropped him to his knees with his
right. McAuliffe remained On his hands and
knees with his head bent down for nine
sec >nds and when he rose helplessly. God
<3ar.l. who had been to his corner, rushed on
him and after a couple of blows sent him
down near the ropes where he was couuied
Goddard was borne to his chair by his
seconds annd the cheers of tue specta
No One JBadly Hurt.
McAuliffe was seen iii his dressing
room. He was despondent. "I have
nothing to say, 7 ' he said when ques
tioned regarding the result. "1 don't
know what was the matter with me; I
was in the best of condition."
Greggains and Murphy his seconds,
confirmed his remarks. * Martin stated
that McAuliffe had reduced his weight
during his training over thirty pounds.
Joe bore little traces of the battle save
a puffed face and a few scratches on
the body. His seconds complained of
the referee's method in allowing punch
ing during clinches, but there was
apparently no grouud therefor.
