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-
(From the Globe-Democrat.) ~^«.v«^
ously injured In hospitals, 401; estimated in
jured outside of hospitals, 1,000. Property
loss, estimated, $20,000,000.
East St. Louis—ldentified dead, 110; un
known dead, 6; dying, 6; missing, 10; seriously
injured in hospitals, 200; estimated injured
outside of hospitals, 2,000. 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
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
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
where the densely populated tenement houses
are located, fully six miles and crosses the
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
■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«
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
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

old Tremont house. One more corpse, that

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.

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.
It Took Up Most of the Day iv the
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-
(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
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.
Favorable Report on It to the Hon*e
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,
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. Press rates
*rfi not to exceed one-quarter of these charge*.

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.
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
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.

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."

MILWAUKEE, Wis., May 29.—Samuel Gom

the company will not grant the request. The
strikers held a mass meeting today. Gov.
Upham attended the conferences with Gom

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
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
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
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.
