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.
General Hover Expire After Brief
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
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
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,

Out of 700 temples in Gifu prefecture,

Anything like a hcavy'rainfall would cause

many months would bo required to repair
