GLENWOOD, Minn., July C— The first cyclone in Pope county, so far as known, came today, and it was indeed a sorrowful introduction. The funnel shaped cloud was first noticed at 2 o'clock this afternoon, one-half mile southwest of Lowry, where it formed and immediately proceeded to clean ev erything in its path. The first house it struck was a large farm house belong ing to Iver Liegen. The house was splintered into kindling wood, the oc cupants escaping with a few bruises and a bad scare. It then proceeded to the small vil- O FERGUS PAULS N \ k f,, § j / I ©CLENWOOD I |J_T£V/Nsj_POPf_ JS7CARMS O St.Clo U d l'|SL SV^IFT ' & / Wj Ml^NtAPOL|"s>/^ f SGESE OF THE CYCLONE. The cut shows the approximate location of Samuel Morrow's farm house. lage of Lowry. on the Soo road. The people having been warned of the ap proach of the storm, had sought refuge in 'their cellars, and thus avoided death. Three elevators, the Soo depot, the mill and about one dozen dwelling houses were swept from the face of the earth, leaving the village nearly totally ruined. The storm then went south easterly to Robert Peacock's farm, where the dwelling and barn were to tally demolished. Mrs. Peacock was seriously injured, as was also a little boy belonging to Robert McGowan. After having completed its work there, it set upon a large brick house just completed, occupied and belong ing to Thomas Landers. It did not even leave so much as a brick to show where that structure had stood. The cellar here also saved loss of life. After having left Mr. Landers with out house or home, it wended its way to the farm of Sam Morrow, and here is where it spent its last fury, seem ing as though it would make a des perate attempt before giving up its de stroying propensities. Mr. Morrow's houses and barn were torn and twist ed into kindling wood and scattered for miles around the country. Mr. Mor row was found a short distance away dead, as was also his eight-year-old daughter Anna. The rest of the family are all injured. Mrs. Morrow is not ex pected to live. Winnie Morrow is seri ously injured. Alfred Morrow has hi 3 leg crushed and other injuries, and his recovery is doubtful. Oswald Morrow is seriously injured, and a one-year-old baby, badly hurt, was found in a tree some distance away. The hired man, Tollef Laavan, had a piece of board eight inches long driven into his back, his legs were badly bruised, and his recovery is doubtful. It was a sad sight to see Mr. Morrow and his daughter laid side by side, cold in death, when an hour before they had been happily partaking of dinner with the rest of the family. In looking over the ground, a horse was found lying dead with harness on, over fifty rode from where the barn had WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 7, 1897. stood. Sheep, hogs, cattle, horses and chickens lay scattered everywhere, mixed with bedding, trunk covers, car pets, everything imaginable, all left worthless by the grim destroyer. No estimate can be made as to loss to standing grain and meadows. Ev erything in the path of the storm is left black and ruined. It no doubt took more lives and destroyed more property than here reported, but ow ing to the lateness of the hour and the impassable roads no particulars from other sources can be obtained. It is safe to say that at least ten people have lost their lives. DULUTH, Minn., July 6.— Dispatches received here late tonight at railroad offices say that a cyclone has obliter ated the town of Lowry, and that four people were killed and several injured. Lowry is situated on the Soo line, seven miles from Glen-wood, on the Northern Pacific railroad. Particulars are mea ger, but it is learned that the cyclone traveled from southwest to northeast, and that the little town of Lowry wan right in the track of the storm. A second report is that seven persons were killed and many injured, while still another is that ten were killed. The cyclone struck Lowry shortly after 6 o'clock this evening. Evidences of the cyclone cloud wei % e seen in Duluth about 7 o'clock. The sky was over cast with clouds that circled as they moved rapidly north east, and there was a yellow cast that was ascribed to the sun penetrating through them. People looked in won der on the scene, but nobody ascribed the conditions tc a cyclone. The clouds moved high in the air and circled with a perfectly steady motion. TWO-FOOT RISE. Danger Threatened tit I>ointM on Luke St. Crol.v. Special to the Globe. STILLWATER, Minn., July 6.— A sudden rise has occurred in Lake St. Croix during the past three or four days and the rise has been particularly great since Monday evening, the gage at the pontoon bridge, showing a rise of more than two feet in twenty-four hours. On Monday afternoon a large number of logs that had been sorted and tied up near the boom, broke up and were firmly jammed against the bridge here yesterday. Several million feet were turned afloat and large crews of men are at work repairing the dam age. Log rafts lying in the lake be tween this city and Hudson have also suffered considerable damage by reason of the strong current and it is impos sible to say at this time where the trouble will end. It was afraid that the works at the boom would not with stand the strain of the logs piled up there, but up to this evening no trouble had occurred there. The head of water at Nevers' dam is greater than ever before and men were sent up from here to take needed precautions in ca«e of threatened danger. The water Is backing into the sewers in this city and the city's pumps on the levee were started up yesterday afternoon. The btlllwater feed mill has shut down and if the rise continues much longer some of the saw mills will have to suspend operations. Rumors of high water come from all sections north of here and Snake river and Kettle river are raging torents. A number of small bridges and one dam have gone out. aENVIU,K FLOODED. Damage Done In the Town amil to tlie CroiiN, Special to the Globe. RENVILLE, Minn., July 6.— A very severe thunder storm struck thu place about 7 o'clock this evening. TJain poured down in torrents, flooding everything. All low places are filled up. The damage to crops will be great. HEAVY HAIL. STORM. Wheat Lodged nnd Vlnen Vnt to Shred* at Wlnthrop. Special to the Globe. WINTHROP, Minn., July 6.— A wind and hail storm burst over this plase and the surrounding country at 6 p. m. yesterday. It was the severest «storm by far that hae occurred here In many years. While the wind did little dam age, except to foliage, the hail stripped the leaves from the trees, cut corn, potato vines and peas into shreds and lodged the wheat badly. The damage will probably amount to thousands of dollars. Inside of the city limits scarcely a house remains without broken window lights, and the hailstones were remarkable for their size. They ranged from one to seven inches in circumfer ence, and were of a peculiar construc tion. In the center was the usual con centric formation, but the outsi.l.? si;.ia tum consisted wholly of a rougn, ir regular non-crystalline ice like frozen slush. DAMS TAKES OUT. All the Con ii try About Little Fall* la Flooded. LITTLE FALLS, Minn., July 6.— The heavy rains of the last few days have almost flooded this section of tho coun try. Every small stream is more than bank full, and the Mississippi is at a very high stage. In the eastern part of the county, and especially along the Platte river, great damage has been done to bridges and dams. It is re ported that two dams on the upper Platte river have been taken out. and the Gravelville and Rayalton dams and bridges are in a precarious condi tion. The boom company stopped sort ing logs at this place, as it was feared than in moving the jam with the pres ent stage of water it might do great harm to the boom workers. Nine Men Mangled, Frightful Boiler Exposion on a Farm in Tennessee. m . HARTSVJLLE, Term., July 6.— A frightful boiler explosion occurred on the farm of W. A. Allrti, in this county, this afternoon, by which nine people were instantly killed and five badly injured. The dead are: W. A. Allen, James Allen, Lindsey Allen, Mock Tens-till, Asa Barr, Porter Averitt, Bolton. Len Barksdale, Will Allen. The lat ter two were negroes. Mr. Allen and his men were just con cluding the work of threshing wheat and were preparing to leave the field when the explosion occurred, from what cause is not known. Some of the victims were mangled beyond recog nition, and pieces of the boiler were blown hundreds of yards. Lindsey Al len's head was blown away and has not been found. Wheeler, Dice and Foley are certainly fatally injured. W. A. Allen was a member of the Trous dale county court and a prominent man in this section. Heat Still Intense. Additional Deaths at Cincinnati, Chicago and New York. CINCINNATI, 0., July 6.— The death list from heat today is a.s.;',\'i/iJovvp: L. B. Bonton. fruit comnjiUftlo^i merchant; Mrs. Dma Breckinridge's nnjiapi,t>-i infant: in fant daugter of Mr. and Mr;--.., Joseph O'Don nell; Philonu-na Sorg; August Wyandt news paper solicitor, from Columbus, O. This makes five fatalities today and thirty-six dearths in the last four lays. Prostrations of a more or less serious nature usually are four cr five times as great as the number oT deaths. To day was no exception to the rule. The mercury at the weather bureau sta tion reached a maximum of 91 at 3 p. m. It was 74 at 5 a. m., and is 81 at 10 o'clock tonight. The same instru ment would stand from six to eight de grees higher on the street. NEW YORK, July 6.-— A warm wave struck this city today and at noon the thermometers on the street level regis tered 102 degrees, while the humidity recorded was 91 per cent. There was one death and eleven prostrations. Toward evening the sky became over cast and there was a fall of 12 de grees between 5 and 10 p. m. CHICAGO, July 6.— There were four deaths due to the heat today, although the mercury did not rise above 30, ac cording to the weather office. The buildings and pavements have become so thoroughly baked that it is much hotter on the streets than in the tower where the weaather man does business. The dead: Johnson, Charles Smith. Adoli* Balkruan, Edward O. Barr, W. J. There were four oases of prostration, only one of which was serious. Diaz Approves of It. Mexican President Favors a Pan-American Alliance. MEXICO CITY, July 6.— lt may be said authoritatively, In view of the tour of the Pan-American tourists in the United States, that President Diaz is in cordial sympathy with all legiti mate endeavors to bring together in the bonds of commercial relationship the republics of North and Latin America. The commercial museum plan ait Phila delphia has hte entire approbation as the first practical effort in this direc tion. ST. PAUL WELCOMES THE ELKS. Fifteen Tl}ousat?<i pipers Obey. Fate of the Great Coal Strike Still Uncertain . PITTSBURG, July 6.— The strike or der of the national executive board of the United Mine Workers of America was obeyed by from 10,000 to 15,000 of the 21,000 miners in the Pittsburg dis trict today. The great struggle is now on in earnest, and the developments of the next few days will determine the success or failure of the fight for a uniform mining rate. Pittsburg is the pivotal point in the five states engag ed in the contest, and the success of the local officials in their efforts to se cure a general suspension in this dis trict will have an important bearing on the outcome oi the movement. While it is estimated that at least two-thirds of the miners have thrown down their picks, enough men are still at work to seriously impair their chances unless they can ultimately be brought out. T^is President Dolan claims can be done. The operators, on the other hand, are in no wise disconcerted, and assert that the strike cannot succeed. The first break in the operators' ranks was made this afternoon by J. W. Steen, of the O. 1. C. mines at Ross ville. The diggers refused to work, and the mine was closed down, but a no tice was posted that after today the 69 cent rate would be paid It is not likely that the officials will allow the men to, work until a majority of op erators have agreed to the miners' de mands. In West "Virginia the miners have been slow in responding to the strike '■rder. A dispatch tonight says that a general strike in the state is not prob able. The men are not organized, and they are inclined to regard the strike elsewhere as favorable to their chances qf securing plenty of work at good prices while it is waging. Great pres sure is being brought to bear upon them by the United Mine Workers' of ficials to join the strike, but so far without success. The impression among both operators and miners in this state is that West Virginia will be able to supply the demand for coal in the event of a prolonged strike, and that the operators will be justified to offer the miners inducements to remain at work, as they did in 1894. Chief Mine Inspector Paul says he does not look for much response to the order. CINCINNATI, 0., July 6.— A very, important step was taken here today in connection with the coal .miners' strike, which puts the power of the United States against all violence or unlawful acts, in at least a portion of the territory in Ohio. An order of th<? United States circuit court, Southern district of Ohio, eastern division, was made by Judge Taft, upon a showing made by Myron T. Herrick and Robert Blickensderfer, receivers of the Wheel ing & Lake Erie railway company and of the Wheeling, Lake Erie & Pittsburg Coal company, whereby the United States marshal is directed to protected their miners at work, and to prevent unlawful interference with the operation of their railway. The re ceivers state that they are engaged in the operation of two coal mines of the Wheeling, Lake Erie & Pittsburg Easterrj Situation ffoSaip Grave. England Ready to Join in Coercing the Sultan. LONDON, July 7.— A1l the morning papers comment editorially upon the new danger in the Graeco-Turkish situ ation. The statement of the Marquis of Salisbury in the house of lords yes terday afternoon (Tuesday) is regarded as extremely grave, and as a clear intimation of the readiness of Great Britain to join in active coercion of the sultan. CONSTANTINOPLE, July 6.—Con trary to expectations, the decision of the council of ministers yesterday was not favorable to the demands of the ambassadors relative to the Graeco- Turkish frontier negotiations. The situation, therefore, is regarded as be ing very strained, the Turkish reply virtually implying a rupture of the ne gotiations, and that the powers must make a concession or adopt measurts to enforce their decision. It is report ed that the grand vizier has declared to the sultan that he will never sigu an agreement based on the strategic lines proposed by the ambassadors. At the same time, it is thought in some quarters that the attitude of the Turk ish government is designed to enable the sultan to yield later by sacrific ing some of his ministers and rumors of impending cabinet changes are al ready current. The bourse at Galata is largely affected by the situation. There has been a considerable fall in Turkish consolidated securities. The sCurks are soiling freely, some circles PRICE TWftiqffftSS^flggSry.— Coal company, known as the Dillenvale and Long Run coal mines; that there is a strike among the mine workers of Ohio and other states under the di rection of the United Mine Workers; that all of the 500 miners at Dillenvale and one-half of the 400 at the Long Run mine are desirous of remaining at work, but have refrained from so do ing by reason of threats and warnings from other miners, who have joined the strike; that it is necessary for the mines to continue in operation, and that the miners will continue at work if protected from physical injury iv themselves and their property. The receivers also represented to th-^ court that they have been advised that in their operation of the Wheel ing & Lake Erie railway they will not be permitted to transport over th»j road what :s known as "Virginia coal received from connecting lines;" that they regard the situation as serious and are placing watchmen to guai :1 the wooden bridges along their rail way at night; that a large body of men are liable to come upon the property at any time to prevent their men from working. They therefore ask the assistance and protection of the court. Marshal Denvanney was served with this order late today and will at onco proceed in person to the locality, and, after consultation with the receivers, will take measures to fully obey the order of the court. Heavy < Cil si:»-Us. COLUMBUS, 0., July 6.— A. Brenlio-lts, who jnanagos the home office for the General Hock ing Coal company, says there is at least 150, --000 tons of coal in storage in the Northwest. He estimates that this will supply all de mands for at least four months, no matter how general the miners' strike becomes. Street Car Casualty. Twenty People Injured at Pitts burg, Four Fatally. PITTSBURG, Pa., July 6.— Four peo ple were fatally injured and eighteen or twenty others were more or less injured in a street car wreck .tonight on the Forbes street line of the Con solidated Traction company. The names of those worst injured are: Michael Doyle,, motorman; will die. W. A. Manly, passenger, hurt internally; probably die. >liss Smith, skull fractured; will die. C. 0. Rogers, hurt internally; will die. Mrs. Mary H. Wi'.son, o£ Allegheny; may recover. The full list of injured is not ascer tainable at this hour. The wreck oc curred on the Soho hill at the time when the immense crowds which at tended the fireworks display at Schen ley park were returning home. An Atwood street car had gone about half way down the hill when it jumped the track. Closely following it came an open car with a trailer, both densely packed with people. Before the second train could be stopped it crashed into the derailed car. Hardly had the first collision happened before a third car, heavily laden, came down the hill at full speed and forced its way into the wreck ahead. It was the second crash that did most of the damage, and the scene was' indescribable. expressing the opinion that Turkey will only yield to European pressure. ST. PETERSHURG, July 6.— The No voe Vremya strongly exhorts the Turk ish government to abandon any fur ther subterfuges in the negotiations for peace between Greece and Turkey, unless the latter country wishes thp powers to adopt harsh measures ir. order to enforce their peace pro gramme. LONDON, July G.— ln the house -tf lords today the Marquis of Salisbury, replying to Lord Connemara, said the dek.y in the settlement of the peao? terms between Turkey and Greece was entirely the fault of the former pow er. There was no delay so far as the concerted powers were concerned, but Turkey has carried deliberation and circumspection to such an excess that delay was not without danger, though danger was not immediate. They were apparently at present no nearer to a solution of the question than at the beginning. Having -alluded to the situation in 1878, pointing out that then a Russian army was at the gates of Constanti nople, the Marquis of Salisbury remark ed that as proportioned to the circum stances, the year 1597 became analog* us with the year IS7B, so his hones of a satisfactory result ircr^asei. Th^ mar quis further said: "If Prince Bismarck were presiding at the conference, as he did in 1878, the result would be differ ent. A powerful Russian army was then within a stone's throw of Con stantinople, and any suggestion from Prince Bismarck that a failure of the conference would result in the move ment of that army undoubtedly pro duced that effect upon Turkish deliber ations which is desired now." FINAL VOTE ON TARIFF. It Will Surely Be Taken Today in the Senate. AN AGREEMENT REACHED. The Beet Sugar Bounty Plan Laid on the Table. NO ANTI-TRUST CLAUSE. Amendment Voted Down Despite the Effort Made by Mr. Pettus to Save It. WASHINGTON, July 6.— The final vote on the tariff bill will be tak-n in the senate before adjournment to morrow, a definite agreement, assented to by all parties having been reac at the close of the debate today. The agreement is as follows: "That debate on the tariff bill shall proceed under the five minute rule after 1 p. m. tomorrow, and that the final vote on the bill shall be taken before adjournment. Mr. Allison did not ask that the hour for the vote be set, being content with the positive agreement that it should be some time tomorrow. The • limitation of speeches after 1 p. m. to five minutes, will bring the debate within narrow limits. The announce ment by the vice president that the agreement was perfected led to a gen eral exchange of congratulation among senators. During the day the anti-trust ques tion was debated at length, and Mr, Fettus' amendment on the subject was defeated 33 to 26. Mr. Allen (Neb.) ?.gairi""offered the amendment for a Ko bounty on beet sugar. It led to lively and somewhat personal speeches from the two Nebraska senators, after which the Allen amendment was tabled, 57 to 9, the Populists and silver Republicans being the only out s recorded against the motion to table. As soon as the bill was taken . Mr. Bate (Term.) was recognized. He made a general argument against the measure from the standpoint, as he announced? "of fair trade and free sil ver." The senator analyzed the Mil in its bearing on the agricultural to dustry, saying it was designed to foul the farmer by giving him fictitious pro tection on his products, while roai protection was given to all the articles consumed by him. He criticized th<_ steady extension of the protective policy, saying the slogan of the cUy was "a tariff for robbery" instead of a tariff "for revenue." It arrayed us against the world, making the United States the Ishmael among nations. Mr. Pettus (Ala.) then offered hia amendment, declaring unlawful the importation of sugar by any trust or combination, operating in restraint of trade or for the purpose of advancing the price of sugar. The amendment also provided for the forfeiture ol sugar so imported, and directed the attorney general to enforce the for feiture, and to prosecute trusts and combinations. The senator spoke at length in support of the amendment, referring to the gradual absorption of wealth in the hands of vast concerns. Mr. Morgan spoke against trusts, saying he favored the amendment, but would attach to it another and more far-reaching proposition. He thought seizure and confiscation provided for by Mr. Pettus' amendment might, as in the case of the sugar trust, enable the trust to put up the price of sugar, pending action in the courts, and he suggested a modification which pro vided for the immediate sale of ar ticles seized. The vote was then taken, and He'.t feld voted with the Democrats In favor of it. and Messrs. McEnery and Stewart against it. The Chilton amendment was then lest, 2S to 33. Mr. Caffery then offered an amendment to strike out all the differential on refined sugar which was lost. 28 to 34. Messrs. Heitfeld and Teller voted aye and Messrs. McEnery and Stewart no. After the amendment had been lost. Mr. White (Cal.) raised a laugh by reading from the record of the debate on the sugar differential the statement of the present secretary of stat", Mr. Sherman, to the effect that the sugar trust needed no protection. "1 had rather cut off my right hand," said i.he senator from Ohio, "than vote a single cent of bounty to that corporation." Mr. Chilton moved an amendment limiting the drawback on refined sugar tn the amount shown by the polariscop* when the raw sugar is first Imported. Lost. Mr. Allen then brought forward ; amendment for a bounty on beet svga P, and supported the amendment. At t outset, he was involved in a com. with Mr. Chandler, who read from I record a speech by Mr. Allen denounc ing the protective tariff and declaring that it was unconstitutional to imj taxes on one class to enrich another. In view of this speech, solely to pi - vint the consumption of time and to avoid long debate, Mr. Chandler said he appealed to the senator to let "the senate pass this bill of prosperity and plenty in place of the bill of perfidy and dishonor passed in 1594." Without replying to this appeal. M . Allen turned his attention to Mr. Alli son. "I ask the senator," he saM, "what, if anything, occurred in ihr R publican caucus to lead to tho aban donment of the bounty amendment." Mr. Allison replied that the commit.* > on finance had offered the amendment, but it was firmly met with the stab mc-nt from the other side of the cham ber that the amendment would delay the passage of the bill. For this reason the amendment was withdrawn. "So that I understand the Republi can party surrendered to a threat ( I filibustering; it has taken fright at a threat to d«?lay," pursued Mr. Allen. "Oh, no," Mr. Allison explained. "It is very important that this bill should come to a vote, and In case of sharp Continued on Fourth l'u^e.
