Under the abore caption, the St. Louli
Itpvblic, referring to a communication
rom a correipondeot at JackaonrMe,

bit state, tart:
'. ir tad lawi are to be enacted if the
opla are to be robbed by corporation!
!-it I better that it be done by republU
"-ana. It la unfortunately true that aome
i me Democrats elected to the laat legls
' alure la Illlnoie failed to pioDt by the
flsaons oi toe campaign In which they
ere elected, but were found aiding the
'epuMteaos in their direct and indirect
aide upon the treasury. But this must
, tot occur again. The democratic state
oovention and all other democratic con
Mentions in Illinois should adopt a plat'
form about which there will be no uncer-
aln sound. They should pronounce In
aor of the Australian ballot system; In
pposltloo to the terrible eipense in
urrea by me useless and unnecessary
nllitia; In favor of a more economical
tdmlnistration of state afitlrs. And no
nan should be nominated for tbe leeli
ature until be faces his fellow democrats
md pledges himself to stand for these
This la necessary, not only because It
, s desirable to cairy Illinois in 1890. but
ecaose It is much more essential to carry
. iiinols for tbe democracy in 1903. There
'ias not been such an opportunity pre
vented to the Illinois democracy in thirty
'ears ss Is now before them. Under tbe
eederthipof Oen. Palmer tboy will un
loubtedly corry tbe next legislature and
'ilect the two state oftlcers. This done,
be legislature must at once go to work,
erform its duties and go home. There
s no eicuc for more than a ninety-day
eaaion. The republicans will do all tbey
an to prolong tbe session In order to in
, ure tbe democrats, but this must not be
wrmltled. No democrat should be elect-
id who will not also pledge himself to re
nain at the capitol six days out of tbe
veek until tbe work of tbe session is ac
Illinois will cast its electoral vote for
be democratic presidential nominee in
.893 if tbe democrats of tbe state will so
letermine In electing members of the
egislature next fall. It is none too
r!y to begin the discussion of this
juestlon. Let only such men as will aid

after A o'clock Bunday evening a cyclone
struck this town, destroying seventy build
kiga, killing ten persons and wounding fifty,
Several of tbe latter being so badly injured
that they cannot survive. The usual cyclonic
phenomena were olieerved an hour before
tbe twixhT arrived. The temperature was
warm and there were several dangerous
looking clouds in tbe south. A short thun
derstorm set In and then up from the south
came the funnel-shaped cloud, sweeping
everything before It The dwelling bouses
are nearly all constructed of wood, and a
number of them were lifted from their

A path a block wide was cut clean through
the western portion of the city, but fortu
nately the main residence district escaped.
The wind crossed Main street and razed a
number of stores, the second floors of which
were occupied as dwellings. Scarcely three
minutes were consumed in the work of de
struction. Then tbe air was filled with the
cries of the wounded, and the whole adult
population turned out and began rescuing
the living and caring tor the dead.
Leaving Ten Corpses En Route.
The list of the dead is as follows: J. A.

The cyclone swept away everything in its
path on both sides of town. The tall iron
chimney on the Sour mill was torn from its
fastenings and carried a considerable dis
tance away. The RaptUt church steepl
was blown over, falling on the roof and
breaking through with a crash. A number
of freight cars which stood on the tracks of
tbe New Orleans, St Louis & Chicago road
were turned over and a pile of lumber
scattered like straw. The money loss is es

Charley Foster's Little Gift to Brlce's
Wife and Its Growth Into Millions
From Lawyer to Railway Millionaire.
Columbus, Jan. 14. Since it has been de
termined that Calvin 8. Brlce is to go to tbe
United States senate be baa become the most
talked about man In seven states. Countless
itories are told of his boyhood, his ancestry,
bis war experience, his wealth and how be
got it, and very much, indeed, of this Is new
to tbe public, for until the campaign of 1883
Mr. Brlce was not a national character. His
career has indeed been meteoric. He shot
into fame like a rocket It seems like starting
a fairy story to say that eleven or twelve
years ago this man was a poor and obscure
country lawyer, thirty-three years old, with
two or three children, and with bis career
all before him.
"Calico" Charley Was His Friend.
He bad a law partner named Irwin.
Brice & Irwin was the firm, and the two
used to sit in their dingy little office in Lima
and wonder if the world bad anything in
tore for them. Brice was very restless
even then, and used to pace the floor with
quick and nervous tread. He had one warm,
close friend in those days; that was Charley
Foster, ex-congressman and now ex-governor.
The Fosters, father and son the son
being Charley owned a little jerkwater
railroad which ran from Sandusky down to
Fremont It occurred to Foster that as the
Vjttle railroad had a good deal of petty liti
gation in the way of "hog cases,' etc., it
would lie well to have a regular attorney for
the road, and "Cal" Brice was appointed at
the flattering compensation of $1,000 a year.
That was Attorney Brice's introduction to
the railroad business.
The Fosters Build a Railway.
A friend of Mr. Brice tells the following
entertaining story of how that $1,000 job led
to a fortune.
"A year or so after 'Cal' had been made
attorney of Foster's railroad the Fosters
concluded that as the road didn't pay they
would extend it down through Fostoria,
their own town, to a junction with some
trunk line, and then try and sell it out They
1 : I ; .... .
mis, due tne construction or the road
nearly swamped them. They built it with
bonds and stock secured by their individual
credit, and by the time they got to Fostoria
the Foster ship was carrying a frightful
load. Both bonds and stock were listed on
the New York stock exchange, and both
were nearly worthless. The stock sold as
low as f a share. Matters ran along a few
months, when all at once things began to
Doom in northwestern Ohio.
Struck by an Oil Boom
"Oil was discovered, the Hocking Valley
coal fields came into prominence, new and
great resources began to reveal themselves,
and right at the same time railway values
au over tne country took a sharp rise in
Wall street The Ohio roads were all very
strong, and Foster's depreciated securities
went up with tbe rest The owners of the
road made a calculation that if they coul
unload their huge blocks of stock at $10,
they wonld get out whole. The stock had
got up from $7 to $11, and. thouch it seemed
like a forlorn hope, they sent Attorney Brice
to new i ora with a truckful of securities,
ana orders to watch the market and feed
out whenever the upset figures were reached.
unce could tell tbe W all street people all
about the Hocking valley, and he was In de
mand to toll what he knew, and this helped
the stock, which finally got up to $19 and
witn a stm demand. Brioe then tele
graphed: 'Stock is up to $J0, but I think
going higher. What shall I dor
A Political Deal Going On.
-Now here is where the fun comes in. Just
about this time Charley Foster was setting
up a deal in Stark county to knock out the
Democrats in that district Tbe only way it
could be done was to fix up a compact be
tween the Prohibitionists and the Republic
ans, and Foster bad sent Gciu Gibson up to
ummn to arrange tne aetails. On the very
day that Foster got Brice's telegram from
New ork about the stock he also got one
irom ttuison, which read: 'Can do nothing
without you. Better come up a day.' Fos
ter, who was then in Columbus, went into
the reil bouse to reply to the dispatches. To
Brice he wrote: "Sell 'em all out, quick
you can.' To (libson he wrote: 'Do noth
ing more till I come.'
The Operator Mixes Things.
-ow, the amiable lady operator at the
Neil bouse she is not here now, for she
afterward got $5,000 for ber blunder got
tnose messages mixed. Oen. Gilson, who
claims to lie the very soul of honor hi poli
tics, was flabbergasted to get a message in
structing nun to sen out anybody or any
thing, in fact, be was so Incensed that he
would not reply to the message, but started
for home, muttering that if Charley Foster
wanted any dirty work done he could do it
himself. Brice in New York, who got the
message ihi nothing more till I come,' of
course sat down and waited.
And the Stock Advanced.
"Meantime the W all street movement in
creased in importance, and tbe whole market
seemed on the rampara The stock flint.

"That ia another thine that has never been
puousbed, but it was very handsome. Char
ley Foster went and bought $300,000 in e
per cent, government bonds, had them regis
tered in tbe name of Mrs. Calvin S. Brice

One day he said to Mrs. Brice: 'My dear,

as 5 cents. Let us sell those bonds and let
me do something with the money.' Mi
Brlce made a tremendous kick.
Another Little Scheme.
"Mr. Brlce coaxed and teased, and finally
Mrs. Brlce went to Charley Foster and
begged to know what to do. Foster winked
to himself, and, with a grave face, told her
it was a wife's duty to obey her busband.
'Besides,' said Mr. Foster, 'there is a little
scheme on foot by whi cb I think we can all
mako aome money, and I dont want -Cal to
be left out for lack of means. You bad bet
ter let him have the bonds. I don't think he
will lose them.'
And ao be got them, and the whole
amount and half as much more borrowed
money went into the Nickel Plate deal, and
out of that deal Cal Brice made $1,600,000
clear. His associates made in the aggregate
three times as much."

FIENDISH AND BRUTAL ASSAULTS.
He Tries V Stamp the I.I re Ont of His
Wife, Then Smashes Another Woman's
Face to a Pulp A Policeman Surprised,
His Skull Laid Open and His Face Hor
ribly Mangled The Miscreant Finally
Catches a Bullet.
Chicago, Jan. 14. Crazed from the effects
of a Saturday debauch John McNulty, a
teamster of Portland avenue and Twenty
fifth street, committed a series of the most
fiendishly brutal assaults ever recorded. He
got home in the middle of Sunday afternoon,
and with an accompaniment of horrible
curses proceeded to wreck the scanty fur
niture of bis little flat. Mrs. McNulty pro
tested, and for answer the worst than beast
knocked her clear through a door and tried
to stamp out her unhappy life by Jumping
The Attack on Mrs. Miller.
Mrs. Miller, a neighbor, bearing the
woman's agonized shrieks, interfered, and
McNulty left bis half-murdered wife to at
tack her. While he was engaged in smash
ing Mrs, Miller's face to a pulp the wife es
caped, and on discovering this he proceeded
to attack the remaining articles of furni
ture. Meantime the police bad been called,
and when Oflleers Dunn and Barrett de
manded admittance McNulty threatened to
kill the first man who tried to force the
A Wild Beast En raged.
While Barrett was seeking assistance, Mc
Nulty suddenly opened the door and laid
open Dunn's skull with a terrible blow from
a hatchet The officer fell and McNulty
dragged him into the room and again locked
the door. Then a scene of almost incredible
savagery took place. Sinking his teeth into
the unconscious policeman's lip, tbe wanton
brute bit out a piece of flesh as large as a
half dollar, following this up by tearing his
left eye-brow completely off. The pain re
stored Dunn to consciousness and he made
a feeble effort to defend himself.
Brought Down by a Bullet.
As tbe wretch was about to complete his
desperate work a relay of officers burst in the
door and McNulty fled to the yard and over
afonoe to Twenty-eighth street with the
bloody hatchet still in his hand. Officer
O'Shea, knowing the man and seeing the
blood, ordered him to stop, but with a curse
McNulty ran on. O'Shea fired twice, the
second bullet taking effect, and shattering
the fiend's knee-cap. A tremendous crowd
gathered, and it required a continuous use of
clubs by the police to prevent a lynching.
Even after the prisoner had been landed in
the station the crowd surged around the
door uttering threats.
May Be a Case of Murder.
It took the police an hour to disperse the
mob, after wbich McNulty was taken to the
county hospital, where the surgeons said his
leg must eventually be amputated. Officer
Dunn is scarcely expected to recover from
the wounds in bis head, and in any event
will be horribly disfigured. He is an old
officer, married and has a family. Mc
Nulty's reputation for repeated and savage
attacks on his wife is notorious, and if he
recovers the police w ill do their best to have
him adequately punished.
WHITE CAP WORK IN INDIANA.
A Couple or reareahle Cltlsens Brutally
SlTMOCR, Ind., Jan. 14. Fifteen white
caps early Sunday morning visited the home
of Andrew StWe at Crothersville, dragged
him from his bed, and when he resisted shot
him through the Ixxlv, inflicting a wound
from which be will probably die. Leaving
him they went to the residence of John C
Warner, whom they also forced to leave his
bed, when they took him out and gave him a
severe whipping. Both victims are hard
workers and peaceable citizens, and no cause
for the outrage is known. Intense excite
