A Kansas Tornado.
Kansas City, April i. A tornado
mad with destructiveness swept over
Kansas last night. Butler county seems
to have suffered the greatest havoc.
Tonawanda was wiped off the face of the
earth, and Augusta, a few miles distant,
was buffeted out of all semblance to its
former self. No house or building was
left standing in Tonawanda. The town
was asleep when the storm swept down,
and not a house ' or building was left
standing. The storm razed everything
in its path and left dead bodies lying in
its wake. Four bodies have already been
recovered from the ruins . searched.
Twenty persons were fatally injured, and
forty more or less seriously, besides a
large number slightly. At Augusta Her
man Haskins, James Barns and the in
fant child of Will Rhodes were killed
outright. Fifteen others were hurt more
or less seriously. The wires are all
down and it is impossible to obtain a de
tailed account from either place. In
Kiowa the Missouri Pacific depot and a
number of buildings were demolished.
Though no loss of fife is known, several
mishaps are reported. The damage to
property is great. At Wellington William
Little's house was wrecked, and Little
and four of his children were killed, loe
waiters nouse was . earned trom the
foundation, and thirteen inmates were
more or less injured. Butterworth's
house, with its occupants, was carried
. . . . . . -.
several hundred yards, and some of the
inmates were fatally hurt. From indica
tions the storm swept across the country
lrom Indian 1 erntory, through Barbour,
Frazier, Sumner and Butler counties.
Villages and farm houses were carried
away as it swept along. The tornado
continued in Kansas and Northwest Mis
souri today, but was less destructive.
Southeastern Kansas was also visited last
night bv one of the most destructive
storms in years. .No fatalities are report
ed, but considerable damage was done.
Atchison was visited by a tornado to
day at noon. Several buildings were un
roofed and demolished, and signs and
awnings were scattered in every direction.
The Santa Fe depot was unroofed, the
scholastic convent demolished, Thrall &
Co. s warehouse destroyed and the
grocery store of Taylor & Co. put in
rums. The orison roof was carried off
and the building partially demolished.
A small house m the Missouri Pacific
yards was blown into the river. Hun
dreds of chimneys were blown down.
and a great deal of minor damage was
done. Fruit suffered badly in the country,
but no one was injured. At Leavenworth
the Great Western Stove Works was
partially unroofed, and work will be sus
pended for several days. At St. Joseph
early every telegraph and telephone
wire in the city has been torn down.
Numerous small houses were demol
ished, and many large ones unroofed.
1 housands of dollars damage was caused
by the breaking of plate glass in the store
windows. In the eastern part of the city
brick house was blown down, serisuslv
injuring a child. At the factory of Tootle,
Hosea & Co. there was a stampede of
several hundred girls when the wind tore
portion oi the root on. No one was
seriously injured. A dispatch from Law
rence, Kan., says the wind has been
blowing a gale there since midnight
Many buildines were unroofed and sev
eral houses demolished. The roof of the
Haskell hospital was blown away, and it
was necessary to anchor the building
with cables to prevent it blowing over.
Kansas City the damage consisted
principally of roofs blown away and plate
glass windows beine broken, t The roof
of the High school, at Locust and Twelfth
streets, was blown oft. 1 here was no
panic, but the school was dismissed.
Signs were blown down all over the city,
some of them crashing - through costly
plate-glass windows, ihere has been no
loss of life. . :

Kansas City, Mo.. April i. -Late ad
vices from the town of Tonawanda state
that four persons were killed and sixteen
injured by the cyclone which- completely
wiped out that town.
American Tin.
New. York, March 31. The first ship
ment of pigtin to reach this city from San
Francisco has arrived on the Pacific
mail steamship Newport from Colon. It
consisted of 334 pigs, weighing .22,000
pounds. The tin is of the best quality,
equal to the foreign Straits, and will be
sold in small quantities to dealers in this
city as samples of the article which will
soon supply the American market. It is
known as "Temescal tin," coming from
the Temescal mines in California. It is
consigned to Balfour, Adamson & Co.,
in the Cotton Exchange building, and is
the output of two weeks. Mr. Simpson,
of the hrm ot saliour, Adamson & Co.,
This is the first consignment of Ameri
can tin which has reached this city from
San Francisco. The tin is equal to that
from the Straits sestlements, and we have
notified our broker to that enect, author
izing him to sell in small quantities. The
present shipment is a small one, but it is
only the advance guard of what is to fol
low. As there is only one smelter at
work at Temescal at present, it is not ex
pected the market will be flooded at once,
but so soon as we are well at work we
can supply the demand. . The present
price of Straits is from 20 to 22 cents per
pound. We expect to sell our Temescal
at the same rates, and have no idea that
we cannot get it. Of course in the event
of large orders we .might do a trifle better
in regard to the price. The only draw
back at present is shipping overland, the
railroad freight being pretty steep. In
shipping by water to Panama, overland
to Colon, and again by water to this port,
we are able to compete. We deny em
phatically that America cannot produce
tin of the best quality . We have made a
statement to our brokers giving full
particulars regarding the tin.
A Jladman'e Crime.
Ban Francisco, April 1. Cartolonoe
Galiarde, an Italian' laborer, today shot
his wife and - brotber-in- law, Jacob
Canaba. and then killed himself. Gali -arde
lives near Telegraph Hill and has
alwaj been a hard working man, but
rather fligb'y at times. No cause is
known for the crime, and it is supposed
be was insane. Canaba was visiting bis
Bister, Mrs. Galiarde,' when Galiarde
rushed in and fired two shots from a re
volver at Canaba. - Both shots took effect
io the head, and Canaba fell uoconscioua
to tbe floor. Galiarde then fired two
Htiots at his wife, one striking ber in tbe
bead and tbe other missing. He then
struck her with the revolver several
times, stunning ber.' The madman then
fired a bullet through bis own heart, dy
ing instantly. Canaba and bis sister
were removed to tbe receiving hospital,
where tbe sargeons stated their wounds
are very serious and will probably prove
millions In Smoke.
: New Okleans, April 8. -One of the
most destructive cotton fires oa record
broke bat at 10.30 this morning among
some cotton on tbe sidewalk in front of a
fire proof cotton press on Front street,
where 10,000 bales of cotton were stored.
Tiie department promptly responded, bat
the wind was so high and the cotton so
dry that it borned like tissue paper. Tbe
fl imes ran right and left and in a short
time communicated to the press itself.
The firemen worked like demons to ar
rest tbe progress of tbe flames, but their
efforts were unavailing Through tbe
yards swept tbe fire carrying devastation
witb it. After three repeated alarms
geDeral alarm was sent in, and all the
engines in tbe city, witb two or three ex
ceptions, were called out. In half an
hour after tbe flames surfed tbe fire
proof press was totally consumed with
its conients, and the names communiuat
ed to tbe upper press, attacking tbe
building from all sides with wonderful
rapidity. In tbe press were stored 50,
uuu oaas or cotton, some ot wnicn was
saved, but tbe greater portion was de
stroyed. It required but a very short
time to destroy tbe press, several fare
men had narrow escapes from falling
wails. Tbe sight was an awe-inspiring
one. For a space of at least two blocks
a ' sheet of flames shot upward. Tbe
smoke and sparks from tbe fire, blown
down into tbe 'street by tbe wind, cboiied
and singed tbe spectators. Suddenly a
small flame was teen to leap skywhid
from corner ot tbe Independence press.
In a second almost tbe entire block
was ablaZe, and the flames formed a solid
block of fire. In the vara was stored
some 10,000 bales of cotton, which were
consumed in a short time. The place
was gutted and tbe contents, consisting
of about 20,000 bales, destroyed. So
soon as it was apparent there was no
possibility of saving tbe burning struct
ure, the firemen devoted their attention
to the surrounding structures.. Every
engine of both sides uf the river was then
summoned. The people living in tbe
neighborhood took fright and a wild
scene ensued. Houses were dismantled
of their contents - and carried away.
House after bouse went down and tbe
efforts of the firemen seemed in vain to
face the overwhelming odds. Tbe flames
spread in every direction owing to tbe
varying winds, and soon tbe section
bounded by First, Third, Laurel and
Magazine streets, four b ocks, was ablaze,
and tbe wooden buildings devoured as if
they were so much chaff. Every build
iog in tbe four blocks mentioned except
tour was destroyed. Handereds of peo
ple were left homeless by the fire, and in
many cases nothing will be saved from
the burning buildings. Tbe scene pre
sented is truly otie of desolation. Nothing
regains of the many handsome buildings
embraced in the four blocks but the
blackened ruins. The lostes by tbe fire
are estimated $2,500,000. It is believed
the buildings were mostly insured.
The Chicago Disaster.
Chicago, April 2 .One of the injured
in yesterday's terrible disaster, the 8 year
old Alice Hulletr, died today. It is
charged that the Hullett building was four
stones higher than it should have been.
Tbe permit issued to tbe owner, Samuel
Young, was for a three-story structure.
In behalf of the owner it is asserted that
the strength of tbe building was fully np
to tbe municipal requirements. Just be
fore 3 f. it. the first-of the corpses buried
under tbe ruins was taken - out. Tbe
body was so frightfully crushed tbat
identification w well nigb impossible.
The remains were thought to be those of
Miss Walsh. ' Nearly two hours elapsed
alter the discovery before the debris was
sufficiently removed to allow tbe body of
Miss VValsb to be carried out of tbe ruins.
Her left arm was crashed to a pulp, and
her face was swollen and disfigured.
Just before ber body was removed tbe
foreman, who bad been digging in the
kitchen, discovered the body of Mrs.
Keown. She was clad only in a wrapper
and evidently had just arisen from ber
sick bed, and was endeavoring to escape
when tbe crash cane. Her . breast was
fearfully crut-hed, and the iividity of her
features indicated that she died from
asphyxiation. Io about half an hoar,
and near the place wbere Mrs. Keown's
body was found, tbe remains of Samuel
. Risdell were discovered. He bad
evidently been caught under the heaviest
part oi tbe walls. His bead was crushed
almost flat and bis left arm was reduced
to a jelly. Almost touching Risdall's
body on tbe left was found the body of
William Cowan. He was badly crushed.
but tbe appearance of his features indi
cated tbat he was smothered to death"
So soon as taken from tbe ruins tbe
bodies were removed to tbe morgue, and
later viewed by the coroner's jury. After
an examination of tbe bodies tbe ary
adjourned nntil next Friday, when wit
nesses will be heard.
Ureal liOss of Life.
Kansas City, Mo., April 2. With the
cessation of the storm the telegraph is
again brought into, service. Tbe wire
service is still bad, but enough informa
tion has been obtained to show tbe terri
ble destructiveness ' of tbe storm. All
that territory lying west of the center ot
Kingham county is still cut off from tbe
world, and tbe exteut of tbe destruction
of life and property in tbat territory can
not oe learned lor some days yet. The
following is tbe estimate placed on the
dead and wounded as near as can be as
certained at this time.

Fatal Steamboat Fire.
Cincinnati, O., April 1. The steamer
Golden Rale caught fire yesterday after
noon just as she was leaving tbe wharf.
and a panic ensued among tbe passen
gers, who could not escape. - oo iar tbe
only passenger positively known to have
been lost is JSellle Maloney. Tbe follow
ing persons are believed to be dead:
Frank T. Riley, second mate; Mrs. O'-
Leary, cook; Buck Warner, Billy Madi
son, Mac Hoi man, stevedores. Six to
fifteen roustabouts - perished in tbe Gol
den Rale's hold. One who escaped says
nine were there when be left.
Mrs. Rev. George B. Easton, of Addi
son, is also among the musing. JNone ot
the bodies are yet recovered. Tbe num
ber of unknown deckhands is now be
lieved to be four, making a total ot 11. .
Anarchists in Hadrl.
Madrid, April 4. Great excitement
was cans today by tbe discovery ot an
anarchist plot to blow up the chamber of
deputies. The police bad. received infor
matiorPthat two foreign anarchists were
conspiring witb Spanish anarchists to
blow np public buildings. This after
noon the suspects, a Frenchman named
Duval and a Portuguese named Feiriera,
left tbeir booses, each carrying a parcel
wrapped in a newspaper. Ibe ponce
watched them, and at tbe Cortes building
both placed themselves before ibe door
leading to the chamber of deputies. Tbe
uolice then decided to arrest tbem. 1 hey
bad bombs inclosed in cast-iron cases and
each having a three minute fuse. Tbe
bombs weighed eight pounds each. Tbe

sion, but it is not known whether they
gave a clue to their fellow-conspirators or
tbe scope of tbe plot.
Cleveland is the Choice.
Chicago, April 4. A distinguished
party assembled Saturday night at tbe
Iroquois Club banquet. The central
committees of eight contiguous Western
states, besides such distinguished Demo
cratic leaders as Governor Boyd, of Ne
braska; Governor Peck, of Wisconsin: ex
Postmaster Don M. Dickinson, of Michi
gan ; Hon. bhermaj Hoar, of Massa
chusetts ; Governor Winans, of Michigan ;
Hon. Uewitt Waruvr, of New York ; were
present The first outburst of applause
came at a fervent reference to Grover
Cleveland, near the end of tbe address.
1 he brst speaker was Hon. Ewing. of
Chicago. Alter nominally speaking to
the toast, "1 nomas Jeitersoo, whose
anniversary tbe club celebrated, be
wound up bis remarks witb an exultant
poetic outbreak to the effect tbat
"Ten thousand times ten tboosaud men
shall name Cleveland."
Don M. Dukioson, whom tbe members
of tbe clnb pointed to as "Cleveland's
personal representative," seemed to feel
tbe importance ot the message be was
about to deliver, whether or not it in
spired the ex president. He began by
eulogizing the valne of party discipline.
and the necessity of yielding to tbe de
cisions of tbe party's accredited repre
sentatives in caucus. Tbe conclusion of
Dickinson's speech was an expression of
the belief that tbe party would choose as
a standard-bearer a man who is surely a
representative ot tbe Democratic party
and of the people.
Bandits Were all Women.
Boise City, Idaho, April 4. The de
tectives who went to a ranch near Sal
mon FoJIs, io search of tbe six women
suspected of being stage robbers, have
placed the women under arrest, and re
port there is no doubt of their guilt.
The women, who claim to be sisters, are
said to have committ-.d many -highway
robberies in tbat section of tbe country.
ibey were dressed as men while engaged
in tbe crimes. Tbe women declare tbeir
father compelled tbem to become ban
dits. Tbe arrest of tbe old man is ex
Tbe name ot tbe family is Harvey.
Tbe girls say they hated tbe work and
are giad it is oter. Tbe proceeds other
than the money -ot the various stage rob
benes in which tbey took part were
shipped East by their father and mother.
This was done so as to avoid exciting
suspicion by using or selling tbe articles
in the vicinity. The sheriff and ten
deputies hid in tbe woods near Harvey's
ranch, and waited for' the stage to be
stopped. As tbe six women, in male at
tire, "held np" the stage driver, tbe posse
held up the robbers, and captured tbem
without much difficulty.
A Canadian Mensailoai.
Ottawa, Ont., April 4. The sensation
this evening in parliamentary circles is
tbe formal impeachment of Sir Adolph
Caron, postmaster general, by Mr. Edgar,
member for West Ontario, who has given
notice of a resolution charging Sir Adolph
witb corruption, and demanding an in
vestigation. , The resolution alleges that
during tbe years between 1802 and 1801,
the Lake St. John railroad received from
tbe Dominion government subsides ag
gregating over $1,000,000; that tbe com
pany of which Caron, while a member of
tbe Dominion government, was a partner;
that Caron corruptly received large sums
of money out ot tbe government sub
sidies, and money was raised upon tbe
security of such subsidies; that . large
sums were contributed out of tbe com
pany's funds at Caron's request, for elec
tion -purposes, to aid in tbe election of
members and supporters of tbe govern
ment. .' .

Oreifou City Enterprise: J. W. Draper
caused a little flurry list week by the an
nouncemeot tbat be bad obtained title to a
small rocky island in the Willamette river
just above Aberoathy island on which the
electric station is located. The claim to tbe
island is based on tbe alleged discovery tbat
a part of tbe spot surveyed as an island had
never been filed on, it being supposed that
the Electric company owned the whole
property. So Mr. Draper took advantage
of his discovery to acquire title to the land
from the state. The upper end of tbe island
having an area of 7 63 acres is what he
bought from the state. He paid $10 and
estimates the valne of the property at $90,
000 or $100,000. Not many people believe
tbat Mr. Draper can substantiate his chum.

Judge Fulton said: "Tbe new law went

that all persons who engage in salmon fish,
ing here shall either be citizens ot the - -United
States or have declared their inten

"No license is.exaoted from oar fisher

ty recorder tbat he is qualified under the -law
to engage in fishing. This certificate is
presumptive proof in the courts that tbe
holder bas complied with the law.. Tha fee
therefor is 60 cents, bat that is not collected

"As regards aay attempts in Washington
to impose license or oompel people to take
ont certificates there, I would say that the '
two states bave concurrent jurisdiction ia
the Columbia. An Oregon citizen, there. -fore,
is entitled to flsh on the Washington
shore as well as on that of Oregon." .
The elanse of the fishing law referred to
by Judge Fulton is as follows:
Nothing in this act shall be ooostrud to
prevent citizens of any state having concur
rent jurisdiction with this state over or
upon any river or waters from fishing upon
such riyers or waters.
In Washington the law contains the same
section except that Indians are excluded
