COUHTIIIG THE GOST ACCURATE ESTIMATE OP DAMAGE DOSE AT ST. LOUIS HARD TO GET. DEATHS NUMBER ABOUT 350. FUTURE DISCOVERIES MAY ADD GREATLY TO THE TOTALS OF CASUALTIES. MONEY LOSS AROUND $25,000,000. Estimates as Hijjrli as $70,000,000 Are Made, but They Are Aot Generally Credited. ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 29.—The situation in St. Louis tonight, as viewed from the Re public's standpoint, is as follows: St. Louis—ldentified dead, 136; unknown dead, 18; missing, 33; fatally injured, 19; serl- EAST END OP THE EAUS BRIDGE OVER THE MISSISSIPPI RIV ER, LOOKING WEST.

Property loss, esti mated, $5,000,000. ST. LOUIS, May 29.—Tonlglit, forty-eight hours after the tornado of Wednesday tore Its way through the city, there exists about as much uncertainty as to the actual number of people killed and the amount of property damaged, as on the first morning after the disaster. Scores of dead have been identi fied, but no one is willing to venture a guess as to how many bodies may be in the ruins of the hundreds of buildings as yet unexplor ed. The total number of dead in St. Louis, identified up to tonight, is 162, and in East St. Louis 127. In St. Louis there are 52 bodies still unidentified, and in East St. Louis 2. It is believed that the deaths of the Injured and the future, recovery of bodies will bring the St. Louis death list well up to 200. In East St. Louis the city officials declared this even ing: that they have hope that the death roll on that side of the river will not exceed 150, but the ruins upon which the rescuers have not yet begun work may swell the total far beyond that figure. Guesses were made today upon the prop erty loss, and they are from $2,000,000 up to $50,000,000 for St. Louis, and from $4,150,000 up to $20,000,000 for East St. Louis. The most popular estimate is in the neighborhood of $25,000,000 for both cities, Including railroad buildings damaged. The contractors of the city have been overwhelmed with orders for rebuilding, and the work of wiping out the havoc of the storm will be pushed with all energy. There is a probability that one man, whose horribly mangled body was taken to the morgue, was not killed by the storm. A gen tleman who was in the neighborhood of the union depot power house just after the storm, asserts that some of the crowd there assault ed a ghoul, caught thieving and beat him to death. His story is, that while viewing the wreck, he saw half a dozen men Jump on a man who had been loafing about in the crowd. Some one hit the man with a club, felling him to the ground. Then the crowd kicked him until he was unconscious. Some ono cried, "Lynch the thief!" The crowd then picked up his limp form and carried it to Russell avenue, where they put It in a dead wagon and carted it off. The Business Men's league issued the fol lowing announcement tonight with reference to offers of aid from cities throughout the United States: "The league indorses the action of Mayor Walbridge in declining outside aid. It feels grateful for the many EVIDENCES OF GENEROSITY in help offerings, but having made a careful investigation of the storm-stricken district, which, though extensive, is almost entirely confined to the section of the city outside of the principal business area, it Is its deliberate judgment that the city will be amply able to fully provide for all the needs of the afflicted. "They further announce that not a single hotel in the city has been affected, nor the wholesale manufacturing district "materially injured. The slight injury to the special building erected for the Republican conven tion has. already been repaired, and the build ing is now ready for occupancy." Although thousands of men have been at work night and day clearing away the wreck age in the path of the tornado, they have scarcely made a perceptible impression towards restoring the chaotic confusion to anything like order. Passageways have been made through some of the principal thorough fares, it is true, but for the most part, the streets are still choked with the battered re mains of homes and factories, hospitals and churches. . The path of the storm is fully a mile and a half wide. It starts away out In the sub urbs of the city where the beautiful homes of the people of wealth are located. Taking a . xiK-zag course, it extends down through SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 30, 1896. where the densely populated tenement houses are located, fully six miles and crosses the river. At the extreme limits of the city to the v/est is a quarter known as Tower Grove Park. It is populated hy people of wealth and the houses are palatial, with beautiful grounds and surroundings. To the southeast of this is another region of wealth. The storm mowed its way through them both. Magnificent residences in both places were wiped off the face of the earth in some cases, while in others roofs were carried away,trees torn from their roots and all the picturesque beauty destroyed. Along California avenue, in Coropton Heights, are strewn wrecked homes, roofs of houses, trees and masses of rubbish whirled into the city from the farms and wild timber beyond- the city limits. The same is true of the other thoroughfares. Not a tree or a house in the way of the storm was left without damage. From the corner of St. Vincent and California avenues, away to the notheast, as far as the eye can reach, is a stretch of devastation and ruin. Lafayette park, one of the most attractive public pleasure grounds in the city, has not a single tree left standing. It resembles a thicket of underbrush with the trunks of great trees twisted and torn, scattered throughout. The Lafayette Methodist church, facing the park, is in ruins.as is nearly every beautiful house in this vicinity. At Lafayette and Missouri avenues is a MASS OF DEBRIS ■which was formerly the Lafayette Avenue Baptist church. North from Lafayette park, on Mississippi avenue, are the ruins of Schneider's beer garden. Nearly every house on the east side ot" this street for a mile or more, is either blown down or badly damag ed. Brown's tobacco factory, a six-story structure, at Eighteenth street and Chou teau avenue, was almost wholly demolished, and to the north of it ia what remains of Evans Bros.' tobacco warehouse. A short distance east of the warehouse is the wreck age left from a blown up gas house. A short distance south of Choteau avenue, on Seventeenth street, is the Fulton grammar school, or the ruin of it. From here can be seen the remains of the city hospital. This structure has been damaged to the extent of over $200,000. The stables of the hospital have been leveled, while the building itself is so badly wrecked as to be almost uninhab itable. The patients have for the most part been removed to the Good Shepherd's hospi tal. Devastation and ruin is seen on every side from the hospital. It was at about this point that the storm turned its way to the north. It swept nearly everything before it for two or three miles from the river to Fourth street. Among the important structures to fall were the roof and part of the walls of the Saxony flour mill, the Southern White Lead works, Plant's mill and elevator, the St. Louis Foundry and Machine company's works, all of which were more or less seriously damaged. The number of families left homeless by the devastation along the path of the storm will reach up into the thousands. In many instances theae unfortunates have lost all their wordly possessions. Many will for days be dependent on charity and their more for tunate neighbors for shelter. The number who lost their lives in the river is a matter of conjecture only. No attempt has been made by the authorities to prepare such, a list and river men say it is a hopeless task. The crews or regular passengers of the wrecked boats can be ac counted for, but dozens of the visitors and loungers always to be found among rivei» shipping may have been lost. It is not believed, however, that the death list on the river will be very heavy. The situation in East St. Louis has grown worse each hour. The crews -of rescuers at work have made comparatively little prog ress and- the belief that large numbers of bodies are yet to be found is growing. The wrecked town presents an awful appear ance today. Th« DEBRIS-CHOKED STREETS are patrolled by militiamen and police and the work of the rescue parties has made lit tle impression on the jumbled masses of brick and timbers. Scores of dead horses and cattle are scattered among the ruins and are adding a sickening feature to the already unsanitary condition of the "district. The in flux of visitors at the morgue has some what diminished, but hundreds have viewed the blackened and mangled remains in the hope of identification. As two days have gone by, there will be some burled as un identified. Thomas Griffin, the ex-policeman who was killed at his home, was one of the 600 who survived the famous "charge of the light brigade" at Balaklava during the Crimean war. While on the police force he won the title of "Old Sleuth of East St Louis." Two companies of the Illinois state militia from Greenville and Belleville, 111., in all about 100 men, patrolled the levee district of East St. Louis all day. Dead lines were established and no one was allowed to pass without a permit. The effect of these stringent measures was soon seen today in the greatly decreased number of people in the devastated district. Over sixty suspects have already been arrest ed and were sent out of town or locked up. Several pickpockets and confidence men have also been arrested. In addition to the mili tia and police force, Chief of Police Ganey swore in fifty deputies, who were placed in different parts of the city. The property loss is hard to estimate, but two to three millions are conservative fig ures. Late figures rather tend to reduce the estimate of the number killed, and the probabilities are that it will not run much over 150. The bodies of Mike Kilday and Will Far rere were recovered from th 6 ruins of the Vandalla general offices last night, and this morning an unidentlfi°d body of a middle aged man was found by workmen while re moving the debris from the location of the old Tremont house. One more corpse, that s( George Luckey, w&s tovud. about noon. The railroad yards are gradually being cleared of debris rendering the moving of trains once more, possibf® though it will be weeks before anything _:*e order can be restored. At least 409 height ears were overturned and either w>^;lly or partially demolished, and as man?" of them were loaded with merchandise, T « work of clear ing the tracks will necessarily be slow. A ladies' relief corps has -een organized, of which Miss Louisa Gross, I East St. Louis, is president, and Mrs. Ira ?weet, of East St. Louis, vice president. Committees have been appointed from all churches of the city and are actively at work solicitng aid, and are meeting with good success. Mayor Bader estimates that at least 500 families are left entirely destitute and will need imme diate assistance. Many have not even suffi cient clothing. ADDITIONAL DEAD.

LYNCH LAW THREATENED. SOME WILD TALK BY THE AU THOR OF THE AXTI-BOXD ACT. STOKES COXTEST CASE DEBATED. Republicans Outvoted in the House When the Time Came (or Test of Strength. WASHINGTON, May 29.—The senate reached an agreement today to take a final vote on the bill to prohibit the issue of bonds on Tues day next, before adjournment, Mr. Hill reserv ing the right to move to postpone the vote. The bills appealing the law relating to re bates on alcohol used In the arts and amend ing the law concerning the distilling of brandy from fruits were passed. The latter author izes the exemption of distillers of brandy made from fruits from the provisions relating to the manufacture of spirits, except as to the tax thereon. Mr. Butler (Pop., N. C), author of the bill to prohibit the issue of bonds, in a speech, de clared that the gold element was about to execute a skillful stroke of politics by allow ing the Chicago convention to be controlled by silver men, In order to weigh down the cause with the evils of the Democratic party, which had become a "stench in the nostrils of the American people." He appealed to silver men not to be deceived by this piece of politics. In answer to a query from Mr. Gear, of lowa, as to what methods outside of the ballot could be adopted to correct financial legisla tion, Mr. Butler declared that the time m'ght come when outraged people might swing some man from a limb. The senator said he had seen men swinging to a limb who were less infamous than those who participated In these financial crimes. Mr. Butler presented a letter written by Mr. Gear in 1890 favorable to free silver,which brought out an explanation from the lowa senator that an investigation of the subject had led him to change his mind. The senate adjourned until Monday. STOKES COXTEST CASE. It Took Up Most of the Day iv the Honse, WASHINGTON, May 29.-The house spent almost the .entire day debating the Johnston- Stokes contested election case, from the Seventh South Carolina district. The Re publicans were badly divided. Those who favored seating the contestant, Johnston, who ran on a Populist-Republican ticket finding themselves slightly in the minority when the voting began, Inaugurated a filibus- WRECKAGE OX THE LEVEE AT EAST ST. LOLIS, (From the Globe-Democrat.) ter which lasted until the conference report on the naval appropriation bill came to the rescue and the house recessed before final action was taken. Johnston's partisans were out-voted 105 to 86 and 103 to 99, the first vote being on the minority resolution declaring Johnston entitled to a seat; the second on the majority resolution declaring him not entitled to it. An effort will be made to reconsider on Monday, and If that fais, to unseat Stokes and declare the seat vacant. The river and harbor bill veto was read and referred without debate to the com mittee. Mr. Herman stated that action on the motion to pass the bill over the veto would probably be taken on Tuesday. The naval appropriation bill was again sent to conference, the two houses disagree ing on the number of battleships and the senate amendment limiting the cost of ar mor plate to $350 per ton. After the night session devoted to pension bills the house adjourned to Monday. SUBSTITUTE CABLE BILL. Favorable Report on It to the Hon*e Authorized. WASHINGTON, May 29.—The house com mittee on commerce today authorized Mr. Ben nett, of New York, to make a favorable report on a substitute for several bills providing for a cable to Hawaii, Japan and China. Under the terms of the bill, the postmaster general, in his discretion, may contract with the Pacific Cable company, of New York, for the con struction of a cable between the United States, Hawaii, Japan and China, via the Midway island. The bill grants the right of way over the United States land and provides that the line may be controlled by the president in time of war or other extraordinary emergency. A subsidy of $100,000 is granted. If advantage is taken of thfe measure, the line to the Hawaiian islands must be completed by Jan. 1, 1899. The cost of the cable from San Francisco to Japan, with a repair, ship, is estimated at $7,500,000. The subsidy of $100,000 per annum 'is to be paid for twenty years, and the com pany is to transact free of cost for all time the official messages of the government, giv ing them right of way. The rate for ordinary private dispatches is not .to exceed $1.25 per word, on messages between the Baited States and Japan and China, and 35 cents between the United States and Honoluln.

The Pacific Cable company is organized, with a capital of $10,000,000, and proposes to build the cable by sales of stock, and does not propose to issue bonds. SEXATE PROCEDURE. Plan of Business Adopted by the Republican Caucus. WASHINGTON, May 29. — The Republican senators held a caucus today and decided upon the order in which bills on the calen dar should be taken up. There was a gen eral understanding that nothing should in terfere with the consideration of conference reports on the appropriation bills, and that no obstacle should be placed in the way of reaching a vote on the Butler bond bill. Other bills are to be taken up and disposed of in the following order: Filled cheese, al cohol in the arts, fruit brandy, immigration, 5 per c»nt bond bill, labor commission, elec tion of senators by the people, bankruptcy; contempt of court, courts in Indian territory, reorganization of the Northern Pacific, Ala bama election investigation, animal industry, New Hampshire war claims. It is generally conceded that the list will be by no means completed before adjourn ment, and the prevailing opinion In the cau cus Is that it would be impossible to dis pose of more than the first three measures, though the friends of the immigration bill will press it to consideration if it be pos sible to do so. There was an effort to have the Pacific railroad refunding bill placed fourth on the list, ahead of the immigration bill, and a motion was made to this effect, but it was defeated, and a definite decision reached not to attempt to take up this bill until the next session. On motion of Sena tor Nelson the caucus decided not to ac cept any amendments to the filled cheese bill. REORGAXIZATIOX SET BACK. Small Chance Xow for the Hartman- Tavrney Resolution. Special to tire Globe. WASHINGTON, May 29.—The action of the bouse Judiciary committee today in continuing until next Tuesday the consideration of the Hartman-Tawney Northern Pacific reorgani zation resolution materially lessens the chances of Its passage at this session. The subcommittee made its report on the com promise resolution, and this was considered by the full committee this morning. It is like ly that the resolution will be ordered reported on Tuesday, but only a few days of this ses sion remain, and It Is probable that the North ern Pacific resolution will fail. Congressman Tawney hopes, however, that the resolution will be called up Tuesday and passed without delay. It does not seem probable that the resolution will be enacted, as the senate will no doubt fall to pas 3 it. Lamorcaux Coining This Way. WASHINGTON, May 29.—Land Commis sioner Lamoreaux will start on his tour of In spection of the offices of surveyor generals in the public land states tomorrow. He will first go to his home In Wisconsin, and from there to St. Paul, to give Mr. Kerwin some good advice, as he says, as to the management of his office. He did intend to go to Duluth to have a talk with Register Taylor, but says he will not have time. From St. Paul, Judge Lamoreaux will work his way west to the Pacific coast, and will return to Washington July 15. Indiana Cared For. Special to the Globe. WASHINGTON, May 29.—5. J. Brown and Chief "Two Stars" will leave tomorrow morn- Ing, but will spend a few days at Carlisle In dian school on the way. Mr. Brown says: "The president has agreed to give us $25 per capita, in addition to the $9.50 already allowed. We will- now be able to pay our debts to the merchants, and Senator Pettlgrew Is taking care of us in the Indian appropriation bill." Bridge Bill Reported. Special to the Globe. WASHINGTON, May 29.—A favorable re port was today made on Congressman Towne's bill authorizing the county of St. Louis to build a foot and wagon bridge across the St. Louis river, between Minnesota and Wiscon sin, at Fond dv Lac. Tinvncy Cannot Speak. Special to the Globe. WASHINGTON, May 29.—0n account of con gressional duties, Congressman Tawney has been compelled to decline an invitation to speak before the West Virginia Bankers' as sociation, at Fairmont, W. Va., on June 3. GOMPER'S EFFORTS. They Have Wot Unraveled tke Strike Situation. MILWAUKEE, Wis., May 29.—Samuel Gom pers held two conferences with the street car managers today, but was unable to unravel the strike problem. The men made a propo sition that the company make three shifts in its forces, so as to employ all the old hands, as welt as the new, at the old wages, but the company will not grant the request. The strikers held a mass meeting today. Gov. Upham attended the conferences with Gom pers, in the capacity of a private citizen. £ MINISTERS EXPELLED. Convicted of Being Drnnk and Dis orderly. MIDDLETOWN, 0., May 29.—A sensation was created today in the synod of the West ern district of the Evangelical Lutheran church, by the announcement that two minis ters, delegates to the synod, had been fined this morning for being drunk and disorderly. They were immediately expelled by the synod. They are Rev. Andrew Popp, Stan ton, InJ., and Rev. O. T. KobliU, Hopevllle, Mercer wuaty, OWo. FIX UP THE SLATE FRIENDS OF MICHAEL DORA* MEET A.\n PREPARE FOR THE PRIMARIES. NAMES ARE NOT MADE KNOWN. WILLIAM JOHNSON. OF THE FIRST WARD, INSISTS OX HEARING THE LIST. FREE SILVER SENTIMENT ABROAD, Plans for the Conference of '-Mlturi in Favor of the White Metal. Daniel W. Lawler presided at a meeting of Democrats held last evening in the may or's office, and James P. Healey, secretary elect of the school board, acted as secre tary. Upwards of 100 men. representing th« various wards, were present. It was under stood to be a gathering in favor of Michael Doran, and only men known to be friendly to him were Invited. Admission was strictly by invitation, and R. T. O'Connor, United States marshal, kept the door. Reporter* were told that there was nothing there for them. Very prominent among the attendants were members of "the old guard." There were present, among others, William Johnson, Tom Martin, Capt. James King. P. T. Kavanagh, J. G. Donnelly, Pat Kelly Jr.. Mayor Smith, William Codden, Pat Mellugh, George Mitsch. Aid. Kartak, Aid. Murphy, John Wagene-r, William Foelsen, J. A. Tierney, John C. Mc- Carthy, Anton Miesen, Tom Tierney, Ed Quinllvan, William Delaney. Ed Wallace. John C. Geraghty, Pat Conley, M. Mullane, and a great many others who are numbered among the rank and rile. The special object of the meeting was to select the men who are to be run as dele gates in the different wards on Monday next. At a previous meeting pronounced friends of Mr. Doran in the various wards had been instructed to make up a lint of names for delegates. Last night some men wanted to hear the names, but William Johnson, of the First ward, was the only one who carried his point in thla respect. Mr. Johnson Insisted that the First ward ltet be read. While his request was ending Aid. Murphy made a speech in which he said that ho thought the committees from the wards who were ready to report should do so. He thought Mr. Johnson was justified In seeking to learn the names of the delegates selected from his ward. J. G. Donnelly and one or two others thought differently, on the ground tbo< m-n from other wards would not care to know who the First ward delegates were. Hut Aid. Murphy's Idea prevailed, and the names ot the First ward men were read. Johnson had evidently not seen the list previously, for ha said afterward that be did not recognize halt the names. About 9:5 the majority of the Invited peo ple left the city hail; but Messrs. Smith, Lawler, Kin?, l».'lan«*y, McHtlgi, Geraghty', Kavanagh, Codden, Kelly and half a dozen others remained in conference until 9:15, when they, too, came down and dispersed. Several men who were approached said they had been obliged to say nothing 4b( ut the proceedings to reporters; but from all the stray stories which leaked out it was gather ed that the Doran men rather expect tha county committee—or part of It—to make up a delegate ticket of its own. This mini all 'tho more strange, from the fact that almost half of the members of the county committoe were at the meeting lust night, or had sent word that they were In sympathy with Its objfw-t. Several delegate's said they fcad some fear that Thomas D. G'Hrlen. Pierce Butler, F. W. M. Cutcheon and J. E. Stryker might attempt to stamped., the convention on Monday. But no information was vouchsafed as to why or In whose favor the alleged stampede Is to be engineered. However, the plea of the men who fear a stampede of some kind was dlsposod of hy the statement that the Doran men would be fully prepared to meet anything of the kind that might be attempted. • • • Monday morning at 10 o'clock a conferenca of Minnesota editors favorable to free coinage of silver will open In the rooms of the Gold and Silver club. New York Life building. Min neapolis. There will be others there besides the editors, and one of the St. Paul men who will attend, said yesterday that immediately after the conference of edltora the silver men of Minnesota will proceed to organize for busi ness. "The action of the Prohibition conven tion at Pittsbure Is the signal for organized work on the part of the free silver advocate*," he said. "We expect that the Republican and Democratic national conventions will likewis« try to evade this issue, or else will adopt a gold standard plank. The silver men will openly rebel, as they did at Plttsburg, and we confidently look to see a silver party or ganized to put a candidate in the field. Tin convention to nominate him will very likely be held at St. Louis about the time the Peo ple's party meets. There is plenty of good timber, and I would not be at all surprised to see Teller or Boles nominated for presi dent and a Southern man for vice presi dent." The gentleman who talked thus was in downright earnest. He evidently expects de cisive action along the line indicated, as a result of the Minneapolis conference. Frank N. Stacy, of Minneapolis, will open the meet ing of edltora with a statement which Is ex pected to define the position of the Minne sota free silver boomers. Then the editors will proceed as a convention of the Independ ent reform press, with the principal writer of the state organ of the People's party as tna main ousher. J. B. Child, of the Waseca Herald, Is to talk on "Government by Corporation Prox ies," which is a great hobby of his. Sidney M Owen will dilate on "What I j know of the Press In Minnesota Politics," and his admirers are looking for something out of the ordinary. "The Independent Editor" is the topic as signed H. G. Day, of the Albert Lea Stand ard; but Lieut. Gov. Day is not on the pub lished list of speakers. Frank will attend, | however. Dr. C. Johnson, of Wlllmar, is to speak on "The People and the Press," and George X. Lamphere, of the Moorhead News, will an swer the question, "Can a Dally be Honest?" "Free Speech and a Free Press" are to be discussed by W. R. Dobbyn, of Minneapolis; and "The Minnesota Reform Press" will be defied and analyzed by K. C. Mitchell, of Duluth. After the set speeches, which are sure to be long and strong (for silver) three-minute im promptu addresses will be called for from various gentlemen who have been invited to attend. The business session for organiza tion of the silver forces is expected to be secret, and It will be participated in by others than the editors. • * • Conversations had with Democrats from Blue Earth, Winona, St. Louis, Hennepln and Ramsey counties make It certain that the coming state convention of Minnesota De -1 moeracy will have In It a stronger contingent ! favorable to free silver than haa ever vet at tended any convention except the Populist.
