aWILD WOEE OF THE WIND.
Hessea Ua roofed, Trees Uprooted and Hirer
Craft Torn From Their Slooriagj.
Tornado Camo Without Warnlnr;
and Based Tar Half an Hoar.
Pittsburg, Ang. 19. Last night's
storm was the most terriffc and destruc
tive that has visited this city in many
years. It came -without warning and
at a time when the parks were fiUed with
people and the rivers with boats crowded
with excursionists. As far as known
at this time two lives were lost, a score
of persons injured by flying debris, two,
it is thoughtj fatally, and property dam-
aged to the extent of $100,000. The
Millie Linbatjgh, cook on the steamer
Lud Kecfer; drowned.
Unknown woman, blown from the Point
Those probably fatally injured are:
Patrick Shea, foreman of the "West End
Electric raUway power house.
John Adams, conductor Second Avenuo
Another life was lost during the
storm, making the death list three.
Archibald Scobie was blown into the
river and drowned while trying to
tighten the lines of some coal barges.
The storm struck the city about 10 p.
m. and raged half an hour, but in that
brief time death and widespread de
struction was left in its track. The
rain came down in torrents and was ac
companied by vivid lightning and ter
rific wind. Houses were unroofed,
trees uprooted and fences and outhouses
demolished. So tremendous was the
force of the tornado that the steamers
Lud Keef er, Little Bill and Arlington
were overturned and many barges, coal
boats and small craft torn from their
moorings and sent adrift.
The day had been extremely hot and
thousands of people were at Schenley
park. "When the storm came on there
was a rush for shelter. The wind had
prostrated the electric light wires and
several women were seriously shocked
by coming in contact with them. On
Second avenue a feed wire was broken,
and in attempting to repair it Conduc
tor Adams was fatally shocked. He is
still living but has never recovered con
On the South side the large elevator
of Henderson & Johnson in course of
construction was almost completely de
molished. The heavy iron girders fell
on a row of tenements and crushed
them, but fortunately the occupants
were away from home.
The tornado broke loose while nearly
500 persons were scattered along the
road. "When the storm came up every
body rushed to the fences to hold on
and keep . from being blown over. The
wind tore up the fences, and blew men,
women and children to and fro. Every
body got soaking wet and many were
slightly injured. Great damage was
also done to the houses scattered along
the. road, while giant trees were twisted
and hulled across the road.

New York, Aug.. J 9. Greatly im
proved net railway earnings are shown
in a carefully prepared special report to
Bradstreets.an. abs tract of whickis as fol
lows: The. gross earnings of lis rail
road companies for the first six-months
of 1895 aggregate $349,099,773, a gain of
8.6 per cent over the corresponding
period of 1894, which in turn showed a
decrease from 1893 of 16.4 per cent. The
net earnings of the same roads for this
year aggregate $102,767,788, a gain over
last year of 8.1 per cent, and following
a decrease in 1894 from 1893 of 18.8 per
cent. Divided into groups, a striking
uniformity is noted in the increase and
decrease in gross and net. Of the 126
railroad systems comprising 145 rail
roads, which make up the following
table, two-thirds show decreases:
Granger, gross decrease, 7.7; net, 3.4.
Central Eastern, gross increase, 9.8;
Tjunk, gross increase, 6.9; net, 8:1.
Eastern, gross increase, 12.4; net, 23.2.
Coal, gross increase, 5.3; net, 1.0.
Southern, gross decrease, 1.4; nefc,7.1.
Southwestern, gross increase, 2.8;
Pacific, gross decrease, none; net in
Mexican, gross increase, 7.3; not in
Total, gross increase, 3.6; net increase,
There are some decreases in gross
earnings this year from last, notably in
the cases of the Southern and Granger
roads, but there are also notably larger
increases in all the other larger groups,
where last year the increase was with
out relief. When the net figures this
year are considered, the showing is still
better. The decrease in the Granger
and Southwestern railroads are stiU
notable, but the gains shown in the
other groups of roads are sufficient to
more than counterbalance this falling
off and the result is a very satisfactory
gain in net over a year ago.

Chicago, Ang. 19. Concerning the
view of national committeemen on a
long or short campaign, The Times
Herald says: Thirty-eight national
committeemen, 20 Democrats and 18
Republicans, have responded to ques

cerning the policy of holding a short

full enough to clearly indicate the pro

shortly be held by the two national
committees of the dominant parties.
The Republican national committee
will declare in favor of a short presiden

Talkyrle III Greeted In New York Bay by
Hundreds of Craft.
New York, Aug. 19. Thousands of
people were on the lookout Sunday for
the arrival of Valkyrie HI, and the
British racer did not disappoint them.
At 12:45 news came over the wire that
she had passed Morich's life saving sta
tion. Soon after there was a scene of
commotion in the harbors. Crafts of
all kinds were -gotten under headway to
meet and welcome the foreign visitor.
At 9:45 Valkyrie, in tow, slowly passed
Quarantine and was boarded by the
health officers. The cup challenger
looked trim and neat in the glimmering
lights. On her decks were apparently
all the members of her crew. Hearty
cheers of welcome were exchanged with
the English sailors and then the usual
formalities having been complied witn
Valkyrie continued her journey up the
Valkyrie looks a monster. "When one
steps on board of her one can almost
fancy an ocean steamer. Her beam is
simply immense and she shows tremen
dous length. Her bowsprit for her ketch
rig is very short, quite a little spar, and
her masts are splendid sticks. In a
word, she may be labelled "dangerous."

CALIattENIA SILVER CONVENTION.

San Francisco, Aug. 19. At noon

MORRISON MUST DECLARE HIMSELF.
Editor Carmack Says He Can Get the Votes
of Sllverites on One Condition.
Memphis, Aug. 19. Hon. E. W. Car
mack, editor of the Commercial Appeal,
one of the delegates from Tennessee to
the recent Democratic silver conference
at "Washington, has returned. In an in
terview he said: "The talk of Hon.
"William R. Morrison for the presidency
by certain zealous silver men must be
taken as tentative. Colonel Morrison
has a reoerd ofunbroken loyalty to the
cause of silver remonetization, but so
had a number of other statesmen who
suddenly began to 'think about the
question' one night and rose up con
verted to gold monometallism the next
morning. You can't depend on records
as you once could, and no more can you
pin your faith to men's loyalty to party
platforms. Colonel Morrison can get
the votes of free sUver Democrats only
on the condition that he climbs upon the
house tops and makes a few unequivo
cal and well understood remarks to the
American people. The country's faith
in human nature has had some pretty
Eevere shocks of late, and will not go it
blind for the next campaign but wiU
keep both ears and both eyes open.
Every candidate that seeks Democratic
votes must be running down on the
counter, and no exception can be made
in favor of Colonel "William R.Morrison."

The "Western Wheelman suggests
that bicycles will not become
cheaper until the manufacturers
give up the habit of sending expen
sive teams around the country to
advertise their machines. Now,
advertising of the right kfnd never
increases the cost of any article to
the consumer, and if it can be
demonstrated that the "employment
of fast riders to show off the various
wheels result in increased sales the
consumers have no just cause for
complaint. It does appear, how
ever, that the returns from these
investments are so meagre that tax
money spent amounts to useless the
