1 1 HUMAN. Ni l)., June IC-Special to
the Omaha I !-: The desolation Is in
describably pathetic. Sm li is the uni
versal verdict of the thousands of spec
tators who have visited the hi t c of the
once pretty village of Merman today.
Yesterday it was peopled ly a hap
py, prosperous half-thousand citizens
as c ould ho found In Nebraska. Today,
with half a dozen exceptions, all are
homeless, without a place to lay their
hands or a table from which to eat.,
Yesterday they would have scorned
charity. Today the wealthiest are liv
ing on provisions sent hy kindly heart
ed citizens from neighboring towns.
Days will pass before the debris will
have heen c leared away and the scene
will have lost even a portion of the
heartrending features which may ho
seen on every side.
As a result of the stoiii. ten persons
lie clead, one family having iieen al
most entirely swept, out or existence.

Yesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock
Herman presented a peaceful scene. A
little later clouds began to gather and
before 6 o'clock torrents of rain were
deluging the streets. The citizens were
not frightened at the appearance of
the storm, because they thought it was
simply a repetition of the heavy rain
falls, which had visited that section
previously. At 6 o'clock, however,
omnious clouds began to appear, and
little knots of people assembled in
every part of the town to watch them.
As the clouds grew more dense the
inky blackness appeared terrifying
and the more timid sought storm cel
lars. Scores of people congregated in
these cellars awaiting the approaching
At C:1S it swept down upon them,
coming from the northwest with a
frightful velocity. Those who were still
in positions to watch its onward
sweep sav that it came from two di
rections ana tne appearance of the
town today would indicate that such
was the ease. Old-timers who were
cooler-headed, however, think differ
ently. They believe it came down
from the northwest, spreading as k
struck obstructions and converging
when these were torn out of the way.
It required but a few minutes for the
xtorm to do its work, although It
seemed hours to the unfortunates
penned up in the storm caves.
Citizens who are able to recall their
Impressions during the storm, al
though suffering with terror, say that
as the wind passed over them It
seemed like the flight of thousands of
large birds, accompanied by the inter
mittent craBheu or heavy shells, l ney
kmw little of the havoc which was
wrought In and around their homes.
Whe n they emerged Jt wuh to find a
'ceiie of desolation which was abso
HouseH wer blown down in every
direction. With few exceptions the
citizens could locate their homes only
by the cellars In which they had
cio'ic hecl or by a few familiar plees
of furniture which remained In the
s) ( Us whic h formerly had been com
modious and comfortable homes. As
far as the eye could see, from south
to north, no building stood to furnish
a refuge- for the homeless citizen.
It required only a moment of con
templation of the frightful scene to
bring the citizens to a realization of
their duties to each other. Parents be
gan looking for children, wives for
husbands and sons for their parents.
As these were found unscathed the
neighborly spirit took possession of
them and they turned their attention
to nlleviatlng the sufferings of those
The clead were removed to the Meth
odist church in the north part of the
city, which served as a morgue. The
injured were taken to a parsonage to
be transported later on a relief train
to Blair. Relief trains came down from
Tekamah and Blair with physicians
Huns and nurses to aid in the search
for the injured and dead. Ninety-six
persons, injured and uninjured, were
sent on an Omaha train to Blair,
where they were cared for in the Cfif
ton hotel and in the homes of the citi
zens. The night was made all the more
disagreeable by the rain, which fell
on the houseless citizens in torrents.
It ceased only for an hour, apparently
to gather additional force and make a
second attack. Few thought, however,
of seeking refuge from the elements,
spending the night, especially the men,
in looking for the injured. The women
and children were sent to the school
house and the other buildings which
The darkness of the night was
broken by brilliant flashes of light
ning, which added to the impressive
ness of the scene. The power of the
storm appeared to have been irresist
ible, although its ravages were not
plainly observed until this morning,
when the sun revealed them in all
As the hours passed and the returns
from the injured increased it seemed
to the citizens as if every family in
the town had suffered. After a sys
tematic canvass had been made, how
ever, it was discovered that those liv
ing in the northern portion had suf
fered most in casualties. It was there
the storm had done its worst, although
its force was almost as great in tha
heart of the town.
The storm undoubtedly came down
from the northwest. Its first effects
are reported from five miles northwest
of the city, where the home of J. E.
Hawkins was wiped off the earth. Mr.
Hawkins was blown into his barn.
Lightning seemed anxious to supple
ment the cyclone in its destructiveness
and added a bolt. It struck the barn,
setting it afire and killing M-r. Haw
kins, if the force of the wind h-ad not
ended his life previously. This morn
ing his remains were found charred
to a crisp and unrecognizable.
"Grandma" Nosier, mother of Mrs.
Hawkins, was badly injured inter
nally and both arms were broken. It
is not believed she can survive. Mrs.
Hawkins was badly injured and her
daughter had her back hurt. The
house was razed to the ground, while
not enough of the outbuildings could
be found to fill the box of an ordi
nary lumber wagon.
Continuing its southerly course,
tearing trees up by the roots, leveling
fences, strewing barbed wire across
the country and covering the earth
with debris the cyclone next made its
appearance at the home of A. B. Hop
kins, half a mile northwest of Her
man: Here it wrought the saddest
havoc, the happy family of the farmer
being slain outright, with one excep
tion. The bodies of Mr. Hopkins and hl
wife were found 100 yards north of
the house in his orchard after the
storm. They had been blown out of
the house by the wind, which, in its
rotary motion, apparently whirled
them out of its path as if angry at
them for not having placed an ob
struction in its way.
The body of Mrs. Kelso was found
lying on a pile of debris near the for
mer site of the house. Anderson
Hopkins, the son of the owner of the
farm, lay. near in the last agonies of
a terrible death. Back in the orchard
holding to a small sapling as if her
life depended upon the tenacity of
her grip, lay Ella Hopkins, an elderly
daughter, with her face and head badly
cut and her body bruised. Near her
little Carrie Kelso, granddaughter of
Mr. Hopkins, was sitting on a stump,
dazed and motionless, as if she did not
realize what had happened.
The wind played strange pranks
around this house, apparently delight
ing in the destruction it was making.
The trees in the orchard north of the
house were torn up by their roots.
Their tops pointed in a southwesterly
direction as if they had been blown
down by a wind coming from the
northeast. To the west of the house
the trees were blown toward the
southeast, the wind apparently re
suming its original course. Not an
outbuilding was left standing. Bed
clothing, wearing apparel, furniture
and stock were scattered in every di
rection. Having demolished everything about
the Hopkins homestead, the death
dealing cloud sped upon the town. It
struck the first house in the extreme
northwestern portion. This was occu
pied by Peter Christiansen. Hardly a
vestige of the formerly comfortable
cottage was left, it being carried away
and smashed int such small frag
ments that Mr. Christiansen could not
find even the lintel of one of his doors.
Again the storm seemed to desire
vengeance upon an unintentional ob
structor. Not only did Mr. Christian
sen lose his home in Herman, bnt the
storm swept away his house and barn
on his farm four miles west of the
city, in what is knewn as Dane Hol
low. In the same yard with Mr. Chris
tiansen was the home ef Mrs. William
Bree. She had seen the storm ap
proaching ad had taken refuge, with
her daughter, Mrs. Louis Wachter, In
the cellar beneath the front porch.
Mr. and Mrs. Christiansen came and
joined them, and it is to this desertion
of their home that the latter two owe
flieir live. The Bree hcKiue was torn
from its foundation and twisted to the
'outh, leaving the cellar and its occu
pants unprotected. A brick struck
Mrs. Bree on the shoulder, while sev
eral flying missies fell upon Mr. and
Mrs. Wachter, bruising and cutting
I hem finite severely.
Veering a trifle to the rust, the wind
passed between the Bree house and a
dwelling across the street, leaving the
latter unharmed, although it was only
fifty feet away. Right on this street
is where the storm spread. Striking
the home of John Fitch on the corner
of the street southeast of Mrs. Bree's
home, it commenced the leve ling pro
cess, its swath being two blocks in
width. As if guided by a hand whic h
believed in destroying everything pos
sible, it backed up a trifle, crossing
the back yard of the home of Mrs. .1.
C Stokes, the first house on the west
side of the main street which was in
jured. Only slight damage was in
flicted here, however.
Across the street from Mrs. Stokes
it struck a house where dinner had
evidently been ready when the storm
approached. The tahle was set and
even today the dishes are still un
touched. It was here that the Ander
sons lived. They took to a cellar, ac
companied by Louis Ciaussen, which
proved so poor a refuge that all were
injured. Claussen so badly that he died
several hours later after having been
removed to Blair.
The rest of the citizens between Sev
enth and Second streets felt the full
brunt of the storm. Across from John
Fitch's place, west of West street, his
barn was razed, not a single shingle
being left. A little further south on
West street the home of Mayor E. W.
Burdic had the roof lifted off the east
ern wing. It was not far from this
point that Postmaster W. S. Richards
lost his life. He sought safety in a
cellar, but it proved his tomb. He was
suffering from chronic asthma and it
is believed that this, augmented hy
the terror of the occasion, was the
cause of his death, as there were no
marks upon his body when he was
Another was so seriously injured in
the heart of the city that he died lat
er. He was T. J. 1 lines, a contractor
from Blair, who had come to Herman
during the afternoon to attend to some
business. He was caught under some
debris which fell between two bind
ings and injured fatally. He was re
moved to his home in Blair, where he
died this morning. Mr. Hines was for
merly a resident of Omaha, where he
was well known and -highly respected,
lie came to Nebraska early in the 'OOs.
With the exception of the Central
hotel and a residence a block north
not a single building was left standing
in the heart of the city. Both these
buildings were fairly gutted by the
wind. The storm came just as the
evening meal was being served at the
hotel. In fact, tv o guests were at the
table when the propi ietor, M. J. Ken
yon, entered and advised them to ac
company him and his family to a cave
until the danger had passed. In this
cave the ten persons composing the
family of Mr. Kenyon, the help at the
hotel and ten boarders and guests,
found a safe shelter from the storm, as
no one was injured.
The Baptist church, several blocks
above the hotel, was leveled, the w ind"
scattering the seats about the streets
and carrying the pulpit several blocks
toward the south. Just below the
church the implement house of Louis
Wachter was demolished. A large
stock of buggies and farm implements
was wrecked, the wind carrying the
lighter portions of the vehicles away
and, angry rt the resistance of the
more weigh y machiaes, wrapping
them up in roils so they would be
rendered useless forever.
The Plateau bank, the only brick
structure in the town, was torn to
pieces, the brick being scattered for
blacks. Nothing but the vault was left
standing, the wind driving a heavy rail
through its side to remind the own
er of its terrific force.
Below the bank the general mer
chandise store of E. A. Pegau, the
millinery store cf Mrs. M. Denny, the
harness shop of William Gray, the
general store of Kenyon & Co., the
hardware store of D. W. Harper, the
saloons of Sam Deaver, Ed Bonneau
and Sam Barrett, the grocery of Ben
Trueblood, the drug store of G. M.
Lydick and the general store of H. H.
Wallace were crushed to splinters, the
loss being almost total in each case.
Mr. Lydick had just put in a hand
some soda fountain, which was dis
figured beyond recognition. His loss
is very heavy,- as he also had abouf
$1,200 worth of furniture stored in an
other part of the city which was to
In its course southward the storm
struck the new waterworks of the city
and demolished them. A great iron
boiler sixty feet in length and weigh
ing seventy tons was rolled a block.
Not only did the storm wreck all
the buildings on the main street, but
it went out of its way to deal the rail
road a pretty hard rap. The stock
yards, opposite the Plateau bank, were
razed, the heavy fence and deeply im
bedded posts proving poor obstructions
to the wind. Back of them the Peavey
elevator and the elevator of the Crow
ell Grain and Lumber company con
tributed their roofs, the upper portion
of the cupola leaving in each case.
The contents were thus exposed to the
rain, which poured down upon them in
floods all night.
Along the Omaha railroad track nine
cars were blown over, their trucks be
ing twisted off and carried twenty-five
or thirty feet away. Two cars were
apparently picked up from the tra-k
and set down three feet away, thereby
giving the impression that the wind
had found them with their load of
grain too heavy for further transporta
tion. The railroad depot, coal sheds
and telegraph wires were blown down,
the books of the depot being carried
half a block away and deposited in a
bunch upon the hill. Superintendent
Haynes estimates the loss to tne rail
oad alone at $6,000.
Over across the railroad lived the
only man who carried cyclone insur
ance in the town. This was John Lar
son, section foreman for the Omah.1
railroad. When Larson saw the storm
approaching he gathered his family
about him and descended to the ce
ment cellar which he had constructed
shortly after a hard windstorm several
years ago. He thought from the ap
pearance of the storm at that time
that ha might need it and it was tor
this purpose that he put so much toil
and money Into it. His labor was re-
h1 after years of waiting. That, cave
veil his life ati'l those of the- lieinga
valued most. The storm carried
;ty his house, leaving the cellar ope-n
the world, but the occupants were
:,"( :re from harm. He is homeless to-!;-,
but hi cellar will remain and a
i: 'v home will-rise on the site of the
old as John says he intends to
i ".all! the cellar as long as he lives.
'I'- had $1,000 cyclone insurance on his
house and contents. As scarcely a
vestige of either remains he will ask
the Phoenix Insurance company to pay
Returning to the main street and
concentrating its force, the storm scat
tered the lumber from the yard of the
Crowell Lumber company to the four
winds, although they seemed to have
been concentrated into one for th
time being. The cottage of I). W.
Pipher, local agnt for the Standard
Oil company, lost its roof, and the oil
company's building to the south of
the cottage was lifted from around
the two heavy tanks and blown across
the country to remain unidentified.
The pipes around the tanks were bent
into coils, having the appearance of
having been wrapped around a gigan

the house badly marr
rices. The wind blew
out of Dr. Clark's house and the rain
did the rest during the night, coming
in through the damaged roof and
soaking everything within.
The last house struck in the south
ern portion of the town was occupier!
by S. J. West. It was switched around
so the corners rested on the sides of
the foundation, but the damage was
slieht, except to the contents, -which
suffered materially from the soaking
they underwent. It. was here that
"Caney" West was injured. The xrc
maineler of the family went to the
cave as soon r.s they saw the dark
cloud approaching. "Caney" West did
not think the cloud would strike Her
man, so he remained in the house.
"When he saw it really intended to
visit the little town he removed his
shoes so he could wade to the cave.
He was too late, however, ns the wind
caught him before he left th house.
It carried him out through the window,
which was broken by the wind for his
passage. He was found by his broth
er later limping arounel in the yard
in a dazed condition, trying to find his
way back to the house. He had run
a nail through his foot and was se
riously injured about the body.
After passing West's house the
stormed veered to the east, and left
the large school house and a couples
of cottages opposite it uninjured
Then, as sated with destruction, it
rose in the air and left the vicinity
which it had ravaged so sorely.
SEARCH 0E RICHMOND RUNS.
Estimate) of Number of Dead SOU i" the
Debris Vary Widely.
NEW RICHMOND, Wis., June 1.'.
No bodies were recovered from the
tornado ruins last night, the work be
ing abandoned on account of the heavy
rain which fell during the greater part
of the night and partly by exhaustion
of the working parties.
No organized movement looking to
the recovery of the dead or the dis
tribution of supplies has been inaug
urated as yet, but order is beginning
finally to show amid the chaos and de
moralization which has been prevalent
since the storm.
Telegrams from all points of the
country from San Francisco to Boston
are pouring into New Richmond ask
ing for the safety of relatives and
friends. No official list of -the dead and
injured has been kept and replies to
many of these inquiries will necessar
ily be slow. Many messages have been
received offering financial assistance.
The total amount thus far offered is
about $2, COO.
The militia is patroling what was
the business section cf the town and
nobody is permitted inside the lines.
It is expected that today the task of
looking for the dead will proceed with
greater success than yesterday. The
number still in the ruins is variously
estimated, some estimates running up
to 100 and others being placed at fifty.
O. W. Mosher, who has been at the
head of relief work, says this morn:nt?
that fully sixty-five children were still
missing and a large number of adu'ts
as well. This estimate is generally
considered too large. The working
party expects to find anywhere from
fifteen to twenty-five bodies in t-;e
basement of William's hardware store.

DENVER, June 15 The 3,000 em
ployes of the trust smelters in Den
ver, Pueblo and Leadville walked out
at noon yesterday after having ex
tinguished the fires in the hig furnaces
and put everything in perfect order for
a season of idleness. Within forty
eight hours, it is predicted, most of
the mines in Leadville, Aspen, Creole,
Ouray and the other mining camps of
the state, with the exception of Crip
ple Creek, will 2 closed, throwing
thousands of miners out of employ
ment. Tne low grade metaliferous mines of
San Juan county already have hen
forced to cease operations by thf
strike at the Durango smelter. All
snipments of ore and fuel to the smel
ters have heen ordered stopped. As a
result many coal mines are preparing
to reduce their production and somi
will close. Almost every industry in
the state will be affected.
The strike is due to the refusal of
the American Smelting and Refrain ?
company to pay the same wages for
eight hours as it has paid heretofore
for ten or twelve hours or in fact to
negotiate with the smelter men's union
concerning a scale to be paid unrlei
the eight-hour law. which becomes ef
fective June 15. The smelter employ
es rejected the offer of the sml'rr
owners to continue to work at the pres
ent rate of wages until the constitu
tionality of the law shall have been
passed upon by the supreme court. The
Colorado law is a opy of the Utah
law, which has been sustained by the
United State supreme court.

Argo) in this city, and the large plant
