Result of the Building Society ^afl
nrcs in Kngl^*nl.
N«w YORK, April 2U.—A dispatch
from London says: the official report
Of the governuifljit examiner of the
liberator Building society, and its 700
kindred organizations which have
failed during the past six months as a
result of the fradulent practices of ex
Member of Parliament J. S. Balfour,
•who is now believed to be in the
United States, has been made
public. The membership of these
companies was composed exclusively of
wage-earning men and women, who
had invested their small savings either
to secure homes for themselves, or to
have something on which to depend in
sickness or old age.
An Astounding Tot«L
The report shows that the total defi
ciency, after allowing the highest possi
ble value to the assets, reached tbe
astounding total of $:$8,OUO,OOQ. The
best basis of settlement that can
be made to the creditors of any
one of the group of concerns is 8
cents on the dollar, while the stock
holders will lose everything. Prince
Christian presided over a meeting of
the committee appointed to raise a
national fund for the relief of the suf
ferers. It was reported that the amount
already subscrib^l was nearly $100,000,
while on the other hand the applica
tions for relief already exceed 35,000.
This means that at least that number of
families have been absolutely ruined.
Importance of a Measnre Passed
the Ohio Assembly.
NEW YORK, April 40.—A special to
The Times from Cleveland, O., says:
The Hilldebrand sentence bill, which
passed the Ohio general assembly last
week, is the most important workhouse
legislation enacted in the United States
this winter. It marks a distinct inno
vation in the management of the public
workhouses and is of wide interest in
its bearing upon the progress of prison
reform. Tha Hilldebrand law proposes
to apply the habitual criminal prin
ciple. The second sentence of any cul
prit is to be twice that of
the first and tbe third twice as long as
the second.' After the third conviction
the misdemeanant can be sentenced
from one to three years, at tbe discre
tion of the court.
The purpose is to give the prisoner
time to reform and learn a useful trade,
while saving the public the large ex
pense of his frequent arrests and con
victions. It is said to be the first
measure of the kind ever enacted in
this country and it is endorsed by
President Brinkerboff of the National
Prison Reform association and many
other eminent penologists.

Vice Chancellor Will I»»
ve*»t irate It.
NEW YORK. April 20.—An order
issued by Vice Chancellor Bird of
Trenton, N. J., requiring Father Tracy
of Swedesboro to show cause why he
should not be enjoined from interfering
with Father Leahy in carrying out his
function as priest of the parish, was re
turnable Tuesday. Father Tracy was
on hand and filed the answer. He
claimed that the decision of Mgr. Satolli
was not conclusive, and that be had
appealed to Rome.
Evidence Necessary.
When the vice chancellor heard this
he said it would be necessary to have
evidence upon the right and authority
of Mgr. Satolli to finally 4ecide between
the two points,.and, order an adjourn
ment for two w«4ta to enable*-Father
Leahy to secure snch evidence. Peter
Backes, counsel for Father Leahy, said
ha would proceed at once to Washing
ton to sacrrre such ervMence and, if nec
essary, Wonld make an effort to secure
the ewovn testimony of the papal dele
When the testimony
secured the
vice chancellor will then have to decile
the question which has caused so much
contention in the Catholic church of
America, namely, whether Mgr. Satolli
has absolute power ove$ Catholic

World's Pair Directors Bound IVf
Terms of Appropriations.
WASHINGTON, April 20.—Attorney
General Oiney, to several questions pro
pounded to&im by Secretary Carlisle as
to appropriations available for the
world's fair commissions, summarizes
hi sopinion as follows:
I regard the act of March 3, 1893, as
an appropriation of a specific amount
of money, devoted to certain purposes,
and to be expended by the world's fair
commission under the conditions stated
in the act. as I have construed in this
opinion. The expanses of the bureau
of aw :rd are to ba paid out of this ap
propriation, nd not out of the $*,500,
000 provided by the act. of Aug. o, 1892,
of which last named sum an
amount tqual to this appropri
ation is, in my opinion, a i
fault of security by the worlds
Columbian exposition to be retained in
the treasury, and by subsequent legisla
tion or proper proceedings, to be cov
ered back into the treasury for the ben
efit of the government and to recom
pense the government to the extent of
the actual expanses on account of bureau
of awards. It is held simply as a re
serve fund for that purpose, and any
unexpended balance in the present
state of legislation would doubtless ap
ply to the World's Columbian exposi
tion. The full text of the opinion
makes about 5,000 words.
He Will Spend About a Week on
World's Fair Ceremonies.
WASHINGTON, April 20.—The presi
dent expects to be absent from Wash
ington about a week in attendance upon
the naval review and the opening of the
world's fair. He will go to New York
next week and remain until the official
ceremonies connected with tbe review
are over. A short rest will follow his
return to Washington and he will then
start for Chicago to be absent for three
or four days. Tbe details of the pro
gram have not been arranged. Mr.
Cleveland will not attend the naval
rendezvous in Hampton roads and Mrs.
Cleveland will not accompany her hus
band to Chicago, though she will go
with him to New York. All the cab

The Frightful Accident at the Minn*
sota Mines, Near Tower,
Three Killed, Two Fatally
Seriously Injured—How It
Four Persons Cremated at Bradford,
Minn.—Another Kansas
TOWER. Minn., April 20.—Tbe most
disastrous fire in the history of the
Minnesota mine, near this city, oc
curred shortly after 10 a. m., when
three men were killed outright and
nine others suffered serious injuries,
two ot' whom will probably die. Sev
eral oihers were slightly injured. The
killed are:
CHAHI.ES NELSOK, gas pipe driven thnragh
hit chest.
JACOS KOSHAVKR, lirabe blown off.
The accident occurred at the mine
blacksmith shops, where about 20 men
are employed, neirly every one of
which sustained at least slight injuries.
The men were engaged in breaking up
a lot of worthless gas pipe before throw
ing it into the scrap pile. The pipe was
being put under a 1,200-pound steam
hammer and broken into such lengths
as would permit its easy handling. The
men had been engaged in this work for
nearly an hour when suddenly
A Terrific Report Sounded,
and when the smoke cleared away a
terrible sight presented itself to the
gaze of those who had heard the report
from the adjoining machine shop and
ran to the scene of the explosion. Sense
less forms, mangled bodies, and men
staggering from the scene of tbe disas
ter weak from the loss of blood, charac
terized the scene. The news spread
rapidly to the homes of the miners, and
soon the place was surrounded by a
crowd of distracted relatives anxious to
learn tbe extent of the calamity.
Stretchers were brought, and the work
of carrying tbe injnred to the mine
hospital commenced. Nettle, Nelson
and Koshaver
Died Almost Iitaatly,
It is extremely improbable that Marsh
ead and Mahoney, two of the injured,
will recover, both having suffered
greatly from the loss of blood. The ex
plosion was no doubt due to the pres
ence of a quanty of dynamite in the
pipes, which had some time been used
as a "gun" in opening "raises" that had
become clogged. The moment the
steam hammer struck a blow the explo
sion followed. The blacksmith shop is
badly demolished, all its glass being
blown out. The iron roof was riddled
with pieces of flying gas pipe.
Sad Ending of a Spree at Bradford,
NEW YORK, April 20.—A special to
The Press from Cambridge. Minn., says:
The house of Dan Erickson of Bradford
was burned with all the household
effects, and the man, his wife and two
children were cremated alive. Two of
his neighbors had spent part of the day
with Erickson, and the three drank
liberally of liquor. It is supposed that
while attempting to light his pipe in a
drunken condition, he dropped some tire
and was unable to quench it himself.
The remainder of the family were sleep
ing upstairs.
Several Killed and Many Injured at
Osage City.
OSAOE CITY, Kan., April 20.— About
4:80 o'clock p. m. one of the worst
cyclones which ever visited Kansas
struck this city and in a short time 40
buildings had been wrecked and several
lives lost. About 20 persons were seri
ously injured, many of whom will
probably die. The part of the city
which was devastated lies on the south
side of the track® of the Santa Fe and
comprises both business and residence
buildings. Fully 100 houses, barns and
stores in the suburbs were completely
demolished. Telegraph and telephone
lines are all down and the streets are
lined with debris. The damage is esti
mated at $50,000.
Osawatomie, Kan», was also in the
path of the cyclone, a terrific hailstorm
occurring at 6 p. m. Houses were
flooded from the torrents of rain, win
dows broken and several barns and
small buildings blown down.
Seven Persons Killed by a Cyclone at
Bole*, Ark.
LITTLE ROCK, April 2A—NEW* has
just been received here of a fearful cy
clone in Fourche valley, Scott county.
The town of Boles was almost entirely
destroyed. Seven persons were killed
and large numberfc injured. The path
of the storm was half a mile in width
and everything was swept before it
The bodies of a number of the killed
were carried over half a .mile by the
storm. It is impossible to get full par
ticulars, but it is known that at least
seven persona wove killed and the nlim
ber may be much larger.

crop bulletin: The week has been
cooler than usual. The greater portion
of the wheat belt, which was deficient

more than the usual amount of rainfall,

SAN FUAXCISCO, April 20.—The people
of San Francisco are enjoying this week
an entertainment which for uniqueness
and magnitude surpasses anything ever
seen on the Pacific coast, and perhaps
in the country. It is the Olympic club's
circus maximus, the opening perform
