MANY POINTS BLOCKADED ON ACCOUNT OF SHIPPING. FARMERS ADVISED TO HOLD GRAIN. Railroads are Ilclng rushed to Their Greatest Capacities to Handle tti Grain Shipping, hut the Facilities are Not Equal to the Great Do mandi of the Vu,t Crops of this Year, Kansas Citv, Mo., Xov. 4 .The clam or for cars is becoming greater each day and each day the roads seem to be a little worse oil than on the preceding oue. The shortage seems to be gen eral and from every part ot the country come the cry for additional cars. Although grata is being shipped from Chicago iu immense quan tities by Eastern roads and steam ship Hues tho mighty rush of grain that is ilowiug in from Western mints keeps the shipping channels at Chi cago blocked up. Au ofllcial of the IJurliugton says 5,000 more cars and 100 more engines could be used to advantage on that system alone. A dipatch from ISurliugtou, la., says that 5J0 cars of grain crossed the Mississippi for Chicago yes terday and this is but a fair sample of what the other roads arc doing. The members of the railway commission of South Dakota started for Chicago yes terJay to plead with railway man agers to relieve the stale from tho car famino it is now experiencing. Over 100 written complaints from dif ferent ioInta are recorded on the books of the commission, all arriving within ten days. Many towns report that their ele vators arc full and that they have stopp I buying grain, having uo cars. The railroad oftlcials arc advising farm- ' ers to store their grain for a while as a solution of tho problem. The farmers, however, need the money, but already ia many cases they have been obliged to haul their grain home after taking it to the station. Tho result is the farmers, having no chance- to sell, are short of money, and in some instances pressing obligations are causing much trouble. Instead ot being confined to .tho roads and shippers tho difllculty arising from the short car supply is beginning to affect tho entiro Western country, and unless relief Is ?iven soon the gravest results are ex pected. Tho Burlington has issuod orders to suspend the loading of all grain for Chicago owing to a threatened blockado j at that city. INDIANA'S GOVERNOR DEAD. I General Hover Expire After Brief Illneii. Isdiaxai-oms, Ind., Xov. 2. General Alvin P. Hovcy, governor of Indiana, died this afternoon at 1:20 o'clock. Governor Hovcy had been sick for sev eral days and from the first it was conced ed that his illness was very dangerous. This morning his condition was extremely critical and his friends gato up almost every hope that he would overcome his malady. Governor Hovey recently visited Mex ico, but he was compelled to return from this trip twelve days earlier than ho intended to on account of sickness. Tho governor's illness was attributed to t:.o fatigue caused by tho trip and the unfortunate effects of high altitudes, ulkill dust and poor water. It seized upon his entire system, and his con dition was regarded with all tho more doubt, because his age and uncertain health did not fortify him against such a violent attack as came upon bio.

Particular of the Frightful Earthquake Shock. Sax Fkascisco, Nov. 21. Tho steamer Gaelic arrived from Hong Kong aud Yoko hama ycstenlay morning bringing details of the great earthquake that occurred in Japan on October The shock was first felt in Yokohama about twenty minutes before 7 o'clock in tho morning, but uo serious damage was done in the city proper. The Japan Mail says: It was naturally expected the accounts first received of tho damage done by thu earthquake would prove to be exaggerated, but unfortunate ly the opposito nppears to bo the fact. Hitherto the records havo shown that the most serious loss of life occurred iu Aichi prefecture, the figures for which were: Killed 2,1'J; injured i',T7I; houses totally destroyed and houses partially destroyed SfiUl. Hut tho latest reports show that thu worst results were in the Gifu prefec ture. Of 4,4:14 houses at .Ogarki, 3,.VG wero completely overthrown and 7CC wero par tially ruined; I.4S7 wero destroyed by fire. The number of persons killed is 747, tho number severely injured 52J and the num ber slightly injured 751. It will be seen from this that uo houses spokcu of as burned are included in the list of thoso completely overthrown. Doubtless houses said to be practically ruined arc too much shaken to be habitable, at any rato se long as the shocks coutinuo. it would follow, therefore, that out of 4,431 houses constitut ing the town only llj escaped without in Jury. Appalling as is tho magnitude of this calamity still mora terrible is the report which comes from Gifu perfecture as a whole. The number of killed in the whole pcrfocturo is 5,000, tho number of wounded 15,000, and tho total number of bouses de stroyed i:,000 to 16,0). Thcso figures of course include the casualties at Ogaki. The town of Gifu, on the Tokio railway, with a population of 15,000, was almost en tirely destroyed. Thirty-five hundred out of a total of 4,40J houses in the town wero overthrown or burned. Seven hundred and seven people wero killed. In the town ot Kuno CjO houses wero overthrown. 200 houses burned and 700 people crushed to death. Nearly CO houses were overthrown and a like number burned and over 00 peoplo were killed at Tokcgehama. Tho entiro villago of Eutakutomi was destroyed, and eighty people were killed. Tboso towns all in three provinces Ezozi, Owari and Gifu represent a total of 3,409 killed and nearly 4i(O0 houses totally destroyed. Up to November 5 the earthquakes still continued to be felt, but with Intervals be tween them. Gradually tho intensity of the shock diminished. From tho com mencement of the disturbance up to No vember 5 it is cstlmatoa that 6,200 shocks, or more than ono every two minutes wero felt. Tho top of the sacred mountain of Fusi yama has been rent asunder for a dis tance of 1,20J fcot in width and COO feet in depth. A lake COO yards long and CO yards wldo was formed at the foot of Hakusau mount ain in tho Gifu protecture. Bis rock3 be side Gcngen hill, Inaba hill and several other hills ia Gifu gavo way and water sprang from the cracks in the ground. Water in wells was changed to a brownish color and rendered unfit for drinking. Tho embankments of tho Xagara. Kiso, Shouai, Gojo and Xiko rirors wero broken and it is estimated that about one-half of 35J miles of embankment damaged ia Gifu prefecturo which will have to be wholly rebuilt. The general appearance of MIzushima division of Motosu district underwent a complete transformation and at Nogo ia Ono district, marked subsidence of the earth's surfaco has taken placo throughout in area of two and a half miles in diame ter. The bed of tho river Xeo, In the vicinity of Mizutomura, was raUcd about six feet and the rumbling of thu mountain in that vicinity was beard at frequent intervals. Out of 700 temples in Gifu prefecture, more than one-third arc totally destroyed. Anything like a hcavy'rainfall would cause nearly thu whole of Gifu to be Hooded aud many months would bo required to repair the embankments. In some parts of tho town boiling mud spouted out of the fis sures to a height of ten feet. A majority of these geysers continued spouting for over two hours. Immigrant Frozen to Death. Knoxville.
