The wind is making a business of blowing- this year. One of the things they do not make at Canton is Canton flannel. The Prohibitionists are unable to in dorse the water of Pittsburg. Why doesn't Gen. Weyler dust off and hoist the bulletin: "Gomez is dead!" _^_ There is no hurry, Mr. Cleveland. Tou have until after the Fourth of July to think about it. Omaha is in the dumps again. All of the Methodist bishops have refused to go to that town to live. ,—, —^^^»v— Now, if Capt. Gen. Weyler could in terest a cyclone in his cause he might Bubdue the Cuban recalcitrants. It isn't certain that Chicago won't get twice what i>t bargained for. It may get two Democratic conventions. _^»- These are the days when the weather service Is furnishing us with sunshine, rain and frost every twenty-four hours. The money question is hard on the politicians. It really forces some of them to think who never thought be fore. Wool is a little higher in St. Louis. That may be because Republicans are bujdng it to pull over the eyes of the public next month. The young Khedive of Egypt has de veloped into a musician. In doing it, however, he produced insomnia In his whole neighborhood. The cyclone struck the Republican convention hall at St. Louis. It is now certain that it will stand the minor cyclone of next month. «^». Times do not appear to be. getting much better in Minneapolis. A receiver has been appointed for the salary of the mayor's private secretary. _«. If the fellows who are going to run New York street cars with compressed air would contrive to use some of the air Inside their cars it might be fit for publication. The appropriation for the St. Paul public building has been increased from $60,000 to $125,000. There is, therefore, a chance that the structure will be completed this century. , _^> Mr. Lowndes, of Maryland, Is a can - dldate for second place. He is in the class with Bradley and Evans. After it is all over somebody may think to state that they "also ran." _^»_ Chicago has money to burn. In an investigation there yesterday it was shown that one man on the pay rolls was drawing salary for watching the grass grow in Washington square. The Prohibitionists have nominated Joshua Levering, of Baltimore, for president. The people probably do not want a Southern man for president, and they certainly do not want a man named Joshua. _ m What Is known as the McKinley coon, now In the hands of a Pennsyl vania man, is to be returned to Canton, the day McKinley is nominated at Str Louis. The Buckeye Napoleon thinks the coon Is a mascot. If this country ever needs a poet laureate' it 'may be at)lo to induce a Kansas versifier to take the job. Re ferring to the downfall of Ingalls, Eu gene Ware says: Up was he stuck; And'ln the very upness O£ his Btuctitude Ho fell. Warner Miller announces that he is ready to lead a revolt against Platt. Just here It isn't probably amiss to etate that Warner Miller has led mighty few winning fights in his time. Warner Miller is the man who lost New 1 York ■when Harrison carried it and the coun try.

MANY CASUALTIES NOW REPORTED FROM OUTSIDE THE CITY OF *T. LOUIS. THE REVISED DEATH LIST. AN ACCURATE COMPILATION OF THE IDENTIFIED BODIES SO FAR RECOVERED* SEVEN HUNDRED ARE INJURED.

LOUIS, Mo., May 28.—1t will be several days before definite informa tion can be obtained as to the loss of life and injury of the unfortunate peo ple who happened to be in the path of | the cyclone which swept over portions of Missouri and Illinois Wednesday aft- | ernoon. In addition to the killed and ! injured in St. Louis and East St. Louis, j the cyclone mowed down many people as it advanced. Dispatches received today gave accounts of serious loss of life and maimings in quite a number of places. Appended is a table, show ing a careful estimate of killed and in jured, based on the disaatches: Place. Killed. Injured. St. Louis 200 300 East St. Louis 250 300 Near Centralia 42 35 Breckinridge, 111 2 Near Mt. Vernon, 111 6 20 Near Vandalia, 111 13 15 Near Mexico, Mo 15 34 The number of killed cannot be far from 500, and of injured about 700. When darkness Interrupted the search for storm victims tonight 315 people were known to be dead on both sides of the river, and, although the complete death list will never be known, it is believed that it will ap proximate 400 in the two cities. The number of the injured is even larger and many of the maimed cannot sur vive. The property loss will reach well Into the millions, but insurance .people, firemen and police alike refuse to hazard even a guess at accurate figures. The uncertainty regarding loss of life and property is due mainly to the wide extent of the havoc wrought by the storm. The miles of wrecked buildings as yet unexplored and the numbers of col lapsed factories may hide almost any number of bodies, as the police have been unable to secure anything like an accurate list of the missing. In the ■ . ■ m« M B| . -'II ■■■I.iH.^. " EADS BRIDGE, ST. LOUIS, OXE END OF WHICH WAS DESTROYED BY THE CYCLONE. factory districts many of the employes on duty at the time the storm broke were without relatives in the city, and their disappearance would scarcely be noted, even though they be buried in the ruins. It is believed by the police, too, that, owing to the suddenness with which the crash came, many tramps and homeless ones sought shelter among the buildings which were lev eled, and that nothing will be known of their death until perhaps weeks hence their bodies are found. The list at 6 o'clock of known dead in St. Louis is 169 and in East St. Louis 146. The city is in darkness tonight, re pair of the electric wires having been scarcely begun, and but few of the trolley lines are running. All over the stricken district the debris-choked streets are crowded with sight-seers, and through the dim morgues In the east end of the city and at the morgue at Twelfth street a constant stream of people is urged forward by aisles of police. Hundreds of homes in ruins, dozens of manufacturing plants and dozens of business houses are wrecks. Many steamboats are gone to tfee bottom of the river, and others are dismantled; railroads of all kinds have suffered great lens, and wire and pole-using companies have WEEKS OF TOIL and large expenditures <rf money to face before they will be 1^ 'satisfactory shape again. The most furious work of the storm FRIDAY MORNING, -MAY 29, 1896. was along Ruttger street, Lafayette and Choteau avenues and contiguous thoroughfares east of Jefferson avenue. The houses are in the streets with the roofs underneath, buried by brick and mortar. Under the brick and mortar are household goods of every descrip tion, and on top of all are uprooted trees and tangled masses of wires. There Is not a tree nor a building standing in Lafayette park. The wreck of the city hospital is so surrounded by wreckage that it is barely possible to reach it. By far the most remarkable freak of the storm was at this many»winged house. About 200 patients were scattered through the wards when the tornado struck, but, although the entire upper story was cut off clean and one wing razed to the ground, but one inmate was killed. The victim was located In one of the upper stories and was killed by a fly ing brick. In the demolished wing the MAP OF ST. LOUIS AND EAST ST. LOUIS SHOWING THE DEVASTATED DISTRICT. walls fell out, the roof came straight down upon the foundations, and the rafters, after resting upon sound bed castings, enabled the parents to be rescued without serious injury. The entire building was rendered useless, and the tottering walls will be torn down and a new structure built. Many of the handsome residences in Fourteenth street and about Lafayette park are ruined, but the most damage was done on Sixth, Seventh, Eighth and Ninth. South along Choteau ave nue in the tenement house district, houses are to be seen in all stages of demolition, from loss of roof to complete destruction. In some of them the front walls had fallen out and the tenants performed their household duties, cared for their injured or mourned their dead in view of the crowds In the street. From the doors of many partially wrecked houses fluttered black badges of mourning, and scarcely a house In all the districts that did not have some injured relative, friend or neighbor within its wind-battered wall. The path of the storm is about a half-mile wide and over four miles long, through the thickly populated southwest portion of East land and across the river into St. Louis. Col. Wetmore, manager of the Lig get & Meyers tobacco plant, which was wrecked, estimates the entire prop erty damage at $25,000,000, which will be, he says, almost a total loss, owing to the lack of cyclone insurance. Other estimates range from $15,000,000 to $30, --000,000, but the majority of them are close to that made by Col. Wetmore. LIST OF DEAD. Revised Compilation of the Bodies Recovered at St. liouls. ST.

LEVERING FIRST OUT THE CANDIDATE OF THE NATIONAL PROHIBITION PARTY FOR PUBS ID EXT. SILVER FORCES ROUTED. WHITE METAL PLASTK REJECTED ANU A \ ARROW GAUGE PLAT FORM ADOPTED. JOHXSOX FOR VICE PRESIDCXT. By the Platform the Party Leaders Are Pledged to Wry Little bat Prohibition. For President JOSHUA P. LEVERING For Vice President HALE JOHNSON PITTSBURG, May 28.—The Prohibition na tional convention nominated the following ticket: For president, Joshua P. Levering, Mary- land; vice president, Hale Johnson, Illinois. The free silver plank was rejected, and tho candidates were placed upon the thinnest kind of a narrow gauge platform, embodying mere ly the principle of prohibition, and even omit ting the woman suffrage plank, which has been a feature of its platforms for years past. Ex-Gov. St. John, seconded by nearly all the Western delegates, made a gallant fight for the free coinage of silver, and Helen M. Cou gar, of Indiana, and Mrs. L. A. Poole, of New York, struggled In vain for woman suffrage, but the narrow gauge people controlled the convention and took everything. When the nominations were reached the name of Charles E. Bentley, of Nebraska, the broad gauge candidate, was not presented, his boom having been burst by the overwhelming defeat of the . silver forces at the afternoon session. It was long after midnight before the last business was concluded, and the convention adjourned. Joshua P. Levering, the Prohibition nom inee for president, is a prominent coffee mer chant of Baltimore. He is fifty-five years of age, reputed to be very wealthy and Is pres ident of the Young Men's Christian associa tion. He was formerly a Democrat, but has been connected with the Prohibition party sines 18S4, and has for some years past acted as vice chairman of the state executive com mittee. He ran on the Prohibition ticket last fall for governor, receiving the highest vote ever cast in the state for the party.. Mr. Lev ering is pronounced in his views on the ques tions at issue, and previous to the conven tion stated positively that he would not accept the nomination upon a free silver or broad gauge platform. Hale Johnson, the nominee for vice presi dent. Is forty-nine yeara of age. He was born In Indiana, and served through the war. He .Is a past commander In the G. A. R. and a colonel in the Veteran Legion. In 1894 he was a delegate to the national Republican con vention, but shortly after became a Prohfbi- CONVENTION HALL-ONE OF THE BUILDINGS DAMAGED BY THE STORM. ttonist, and has been prominent in Us coun cils ever Bince. It was 9:30 o'clock before the second day'a session of the Prohibition national conven tion was called to order. The attendance at that hour was light, as many of the dele gates had been laboring In committees, until the early morning hour. When comparative quiet had been obtained, Rev. P. Mackl«n, of Ohio, offered prayer. A resolution wa» then presented expressing sympathy for the suf ferers of the St. Louia cyclone, and it was adopted by a standing vote. Mrs. Fnuices Beauchamp, of Lexington, Ky., pressed a memorial from the W. C. T. U., ad^jted at the national convention in Baltimore last fall. The resolutions reaf firmed alletfanoe to th» Prohibition party "as the ©sly pollUcai party with the cottr- PRICE TWO CENTS— \ AvTcim. age to speak out boldly in favor of woman's suffrage, and the total annihilation of the liquor traffic." A request was also made that the name of "home protection party" be adopted, and that the convention adopt measures looking more to the protection of the homes and the care of th« young. A committee of five was appointed to draw up resolutions embracing the requests of the ladies. The committee on platform was then asked to make its report. Dr. I. K. Funk, chair man of the committee, stated that the nar row gauge and broad gauge factions did not expetly agree, and that a minority report would be submitted. The reports were as follows: The- majority, or "narrow gauge" report, declares its agreement with the United States supreme court that the statistics of every state show that more crime and mis ery result from the use of ardent spirits than corrupt legislation, and make good government impossible: that the party Is unalterably opposed to the drink traffic, and declares for Its total suppression for bev erage purposes, rejecting all compromise measures, whether license, local option, tax ation or public control. Wage-earners' at tention is called to the enormous waste caused by the liquor traffic at the cost of production, and to the fact that the success of the Prohibition party will remove 'this great burden from Industry. It declares that the Prohibition party stands for good gov ernment, honestly and economically ad ministered: that there is no greater peril to the nation than the competition of political parties for the liquor vote, and calls upon the voters to enforce the declaration of the churches against the liquor traffic. The minority report, which was presented by the "broad gaugers," has this declaration on the money question: "That all money should be Issued by the government only and without the intervention of any banking association. It should b« based upon the wealth, stability and integrity of the nation, and should be a full legal tender for all debts, public and private, and should be of sufficient volume to meet the demands of the legitimate business interests of the country. And for the purpose of honestly liquidating all our outstanding coin obliga tions, we demand the frep and unlimited coin age of both silver and gold, at a ratio of 16 to 1, without consulting any other nation." Other planks In the platform declare against the manufacture or sale of intoxicating liquors for beverage purposes. The use of liquors for medical and other legitimate purposes should be controlled by the state. Equal rights of suffrage for both ma is favored; alien ac quisition of land opposed. Government con trol of railroads; only English In the publlo schools, and. no public funds for sectarian In stitutions; election of president and vice presi dent by popular vote; liberal pensions; amend ed immigration laws; none but citizens to vote, and naturalized citizens to vote only after being naturalized a year, are other recommendations. The final declarations of the platform are: "There should be proportionate representa tion In state and nation, and the Initiative and referendum adopted, so as to secure free expression of the popular will. We favor the imperative mandate as a guarantee against the misrepresentation of the people by men chosen to be their representatives." Ex-Gov. St. John read the minority report. Almost every sentence was applauded. When he came to .the free silver plank, the broad gaugers broke loose with oheera and pro longed applause. After finishing its reading Mr. St. John moved that the report be in corporated as a part of the majority report. A motion was made to lay it on the table, but this was defeated, the vote standing 310 yeas to 430 nays, a big victory for the broad-gaug ers. A great commotion was created when the vote was announced. Mr. St. John then spoke In favor of the re- port. The motion to make the minority re port a part of the majority report -was curled. The moLioa to take up the report section by section was carried with a cheer, and Ota broad-gaugers were confident ot carrying everything, including free silver, with them. The first seven planks, Including the one favoring woman's suffrage,, were then taken up, and as they did not differ materially in either report, were adopted. The convention at 12:20 then took a recess for dinner. When the convention reassembled Mr. St. John announced that after a conference with Chairman Funk, !t had been decided to take up the money plank next. The minority reso-' lutlon, favoring free coinage of silver, was then read, and the battle betweon the silver Continued OB Fifth Page, WEDDED AT HUDSON FORMER ST.

DULUTH. Minn., May 28.—A surprise wa« sprung this afternoon upon the heirs of Rich j A. Gray, a wealthy Duluthlan, who died in | Boston recently. Miss Kathryn Western, formerly of St. Paul and now of Duluth, claims to be the dead man's widow, and a* such she will put In a claim for a dower right in the estate, which In this state in cludes everything. Miss Western, or Mn. Gray, is a sister-in-law of John C. Bulliti Jr.. an attorney, and she has lived hero with his family ever since his removal her* from St. Paul two years ago. Mr. Gray and Miss Western are said to have been Intimate in St. Paul, and friends of both say they were together there a good deal. They are said to have gone quietly, without letting any one know, to Hudson, and there got married In the Gretna Green of the Twin cities six years ago. Her relative and representative. John C. Bullitt Jr., was seen this afternoon, but he would say nothing beyond the fact that the announcement had been made to tha heire today. Why the affair was kept quIM so long and why it was Just announced will probably come out later. Mr. Gray left a large fortune, In fact, he had an Income of considerable more than $100 a day. ll« owned the sawmill property at the end o| Rice's point; the west half of the Mesaba block and many other valuable properties. He always carried a heavy bank account and there were few men In Duluth who were In better circumstances. His estate Is not encumbered In' any way and was prubabljr worth fully $500,000. The announcement wai a surprise to the heirs, who had supposed that Mr. Gray had no wife, and that tiittr title was clear. There will a figtit Hi court in ail probability. Miba Kathryn.

May 28.—Three liun.lt «d feet of the roadway of the Northern I'uciflo sunk in Buiuarg lake, near here, this morning, and twenty feet of water now washes over the spot where the heavy trains wctp running yesterday. The grado was built upon the north shore of the little hike, and must have b««?a built over an underground lake, as the whole track for from SM to 400 feet simply dropped out of sight. A westbound freight barely es caped a eompleU wtcek there at 4a. m. The | engineer saw the waves rolling ahead of him where the track had always .been. Applying the brakes, he and the fireman Jumped from the engine Just as it leaped over the beak into the lake. A large force of men are now laying a new track north of where the old on? stood.

As the expense of holding the encampment of the association is quite heavy It was deemed advisable to econo mize as much as possible, and thus enablo every old soldier in the association to attend the big encampment. The encampment at Jackson will occur in 18S7 on the same date* set for this year. The officers elected at th© Worrhington encampment In 1895 will hold over for another year. BILLET IN HIS DRAIN.
