T v STORM-SWEPT STATES I ILLINOIS, 'INDIANA, OHIO AND MICHIGAN. rh Telegraph Service to All IVntalnthe. Four Mute Virtually Deal roy-l for Time Only One Wire Out of Chicago -Storm Most Severe. Chicago, Nov. 27. The storm which raged in this and adjoining' states last night and early this morning: was one of the. worst on record. The Western Union Telegraph Company was com pletely disabled and the Postal Tele graph Company had the only wires out of the city and alono prevented this eity from being entirely cut off from the world. The total depth of the snowfall in this section since Sunday evening hns been about. 12.0 inches. This is tho heaviest snowfall reported in Chicago for November in the lust twelve years. Uusiness of every sort is greatly crippled in Chicago to-day. Suburban trains on the steam railways are greatly delayed, while some of the trolley lines had to be abandoned en tirely. At 10:30 o'clock the Western Union Telegraph company had established communication between this city and St. Louis, and wus accepting Associ ated 1'ress news and general business. An hour before practically not a tick of a "sounder" was heard in this city, the telegraph offices being silent. Old operators said that they had not known such a state of thing in thirty years. The general demoralization of the wires wus due to the heavy wet enow and high wind which had broken them clown in all directions. A few remained intact, but they were use less onacconntof others being broken, which crossed and grounded them. On account of the complete prostra tion or crossing of the wires, how far the storm has extended is not known, but as far as can be judged ut this hour the principal trouble seems to be in the vicinity of Chicago, due doubt less to the large number of overhead wires. Meager reports show that the storm was as severe in Michigan, Indiana ' and Ohio as in Illinois, but it is impos sible to obtain and details at present, all wires to Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Detroit being down. SOUTHWEST AFFECTED. St. Louis Street Railway IJeuioralirci Heavy Nnotr at Many Point. St. Loiis, Mo., Nov. 27. The storm almost completely demoralized street railway service yesterday and last night, the electric lines suffering es pecially. Reports from all parts of Missouri, Arkansas, Iowa and Northern Texas were that there had been an unusually heavy fall of snow, with more or less wind and prostration of telegraph wcres. Trains generally were de layed and in Texas the storm swept over the ranches, covering them with snow several inches deep, severely ex posing all kinds of live stock to its fury. If the temperature falls much lower in that section there will be great loss of cattle and sheep. As it is, there is much suffering. At Kama City. Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 27. At the United States signal ofticc, in the Rialto building, the wenthcr prognos ticates were handicapped by tho ef fects of the snow storm. It had raged with intense fury in tho central .Mis sissippi valley, though the snow full J was not heavy. Jtclween Kansas City and St. Louis the Western Union wires were down in many instances, and the wires still on the poles were working weakly. At 11 o'clock no reports had ennio from Chicago, so badly crippled was the telegraph ser vice. The snow fall at Kansas City during the past twenty-four hours was.3'5 inches. The snow fall for the State was .70. CAMPOS WELL EQUIPPED. More Than One Hundred and Forty Tlinooand SpunUh Troop In Cuba. CibnfiuAS, Cuba, Nov. 2". Five hundred troopi have arrived here.

' STRIKERS' RIGHTS. The Mianonrl Snpreme Conrt Kendrr Dei-lalon of Much Interest. Je ffkhson City, Mo., Nov. 27When the employes of the Ilumilton-Hrown Shoo Company of St Louis struck some months ago, tho strikers, led by A. J. Saxey, undertook to picket tho buiiding, and by entreaties, threats and intimidation, induce other em ployes to join them, and visited their houses at night and renewed their im portunities and threats. The com pany applied to Judge Vallinnt of the St, Louis Circuit court for an injunc tion restraining the strikers from in any way interfering with tho em ployes. This was granted. The strikers claimed that if any offense had been committed, it was a criminal one, entitling them to a trial by jury, and that a court of equity had do juris diction over tho matter, und appealed to the Supreme court. With the full concurrence of the Su preme court, Judgo Jirace rendered the decision to-day. Ho holds that while a court of equity has no juris-, diction ovqr a criminal proceeding, yet un injunction to protect property from injury is within the scope of au thority of such a tribunal. Defining the rights of employers und employes, ho says: "The injunction in this case does not hinder tho defendants from doing anything that they claim they have a right to do. They are free men und have the right to quit the cm ploy of plaintiffs whenever they see fit to do so, and no one can prevent them and whether their act of quitting is wise or unwise, just or unjust, it is nobody's business but their own. And they have a right to use fair persuasion to induce others to join them in quitting. Hut when fair persuasion is exhausted, they have no right to resort to force or threats of violence. The law will protect their freedom ud1 their rights, but it will not permit thorn to affect the freedom and rights of others. The same law which guarantees the de fendants their right to quit the em ployment of the plaintiffs at their will and pleasure also guarantees the other employes to remain at their will and pleasure. The defendants are their own masters, but they are not the masters of the other employes and not only are they not their masters, but they are not even their guardians." MURDERED ON A BOAT. Three Men and a lloy Found Killed Near Arthur tily, I. T. Paris, Texas, Nov. 27. Three weeks ago three men bought a covered boat above Arthur City, f. T., and with a dog started 011 a fishing and hunting trip down the river. Seveaal days ugo the boat anchored just below that pluce. No signs of life were observed on it und finally a party of citi.ens decided to investigate. On the deck was seen a man with his head almost severed from his body. A nereedog prevented the investitators from boarding the boat for a time, but the animal was finally overcome. Then it was found that the other two men and the boy had been murdered while asleep in their berths in the cabin, all of their heads being crushed lu. All had been dead for several days. The men's clothes were scattered about tho room, with the Dockets turned inside out, showing robbery, as well hs murder. REUNITED AFTER YEARS.

He clasped the hand of the wife ho had abandoned so long ago and each gazed long and earnestly into the face of the other. Then O'Connor turned and embraced his 10-year-old daughter, who was a child of 3 when he disappeared. Mrs. O'Connor had never believed that the man in jail here was her hus band until sho stood face to face with him. She recognized him at the first glance, although he is wonderfully changed.

Firmans Ismied Allowing Four (ireat Tn'atlmm t:i Hive an Fttra Veel at t'oimtanlinole Anieriran Missionaries ut Kearput Not Well Trolected. Constant ixopi.e, Nov. '2$. Tho Turkish minister for foreign affairs, Tewfik Pasha, called upon Sir Philip Curric, the Hritish ambassador, and announced that the port had decided to issue the lirznans providing for the passage through the Durudunelles of the extra guurdships demanded by Oreut Hrituiu, Russia, Italy and Aus tria, us additional protection for the safety of the foreign population here in view of the recent rioting in the streets. This puts an end to a very dangerous situation, for there is no doubt that the powers would have in sisted upon having the extra gunboats here. Fuller details of the burning of the American lAission buildings at Khurput show that the Turkish government of ficials, in spite of the (abundance of promises of protection for the Ameri can missionaries and their property, made by the porte to United States Minister Terrell and to the Americans themselves by the authorities of Khar put, utterly failed to guard the Ameri cans. No protection was offered un til the massacre hud actually occurred and the American mission buildings burned. The value of the American property destroyed was about 5100,000. It consisted of the girls' college, theo logical seminary, the chapel and live residences. All of the personal effects of the Americans, missionaries, the libraries, scientific instruments, etc., were stolen. So far only a sraali pro portion of the property has been re covered. The ladv missionaries were in great terror while the rioting was going on. The authorities of Khar put, however, protected the mission aries after the latter tied from their residences to the official quarters. Some of the American missionaries, including Dr. and Mrs. Crosby and Wheeler, Mr. Kllisund Mrs. f'oyudjiun and iier children, have arrived here. The other members of the Kastern Turkey Mission at Khurput elected to remain there for the present. All reports agree in establishing the fact that the rioting was fearful; that several hundred Armenians, men, women and children, were butchered; that the massacre seemed to be pre meditated and the Turkish troops, if they did not take part in the slaugh ter, as the Armenians claim, certainly made no effort to stop it. Mr. Terrell, when informed of the destruction of the mission buildings at Kbarput, made a strong formal pro test to the porte, und as soon us the work of collecting all the data neces sary is completed, he will demand the immediute payment of an indemnity. When he intimated that this would be done, he was assured that the Turkish government would pay the indemnity required as soon as all the facts in the case should be established. THE COST OF BAD ROADS. IlnnilrrdH of Million Wasted Fvsrjr Year In A merli n. Wamiinhton, Nov. 23. The road in quiry bureau of the Department of Agriculture has received returns from about 1,200 counties, showing the aver age length of haul from farms to mar kets or shipping points to be twelve miles, the average weight for a loud for two horses 2,002 pounds and the average cost per ton Der mile twenty five cents. Kstimuting the farm pro ducts at 219,824.227 tons in weight, and making estimates on other arti cles carried over the public rodds. it is calculated that the aggregate expeuso of this transportation in the United States is S-'4f.,4l4,i)t'i." per annum. lieports have been asked from tho United States consuls abroad of the expense of hauling where the roads are good, so as tj render possible a calculation which will show how much of this vast outlay i? due to bad roads. The estimate is ventured, however, upon information in the oCico, count ing the loss of time In reaching mar kets, the enforced idleness and the wear uud tear to the live stock and hauling machinery caused by pour roads, that two-third, of the cost might be saved by improvement of the roads.

Dene diet, the trusted und intimate friend ! of President Cleveland, that the presi j dent will not under any circumstances accept the nomination for a third term. Mr. Benedict has long enjoyed the confidence of Mr. Cleveland and is so close in his relations with him that this statement has a semi-oilleial com plexion. Mr. lienediet said: "I am certain that Mr. Cleveland would decline an other nomination if it were offered him. I am positive that he doesn't want to serve a third term. .1 am equally positive that he could not be persuaded under any circum stances to accept the nomination if it should be tendered him. I have heard him say that he intended to make a tour of the world at the expiration of his second term; that he wanted to see more of tho world than ho hud seen and that he had his traveling companion already picked out at least that he had asked a personal friend of his to accompany him on the tour." In making this statement ' for pub lication, Mr. Benedict has so fur de parted from his previous reticence with regard to Mr. Cleveland's affairs, that it lias special significance. To-day Mr. Benedict said further: "Mr. Cleveland does not make me con fidant. 1 can not speak for him with authority, and I don't like to be placed iu the position of acting as his mouth piece. It is not a pleasant position for one to be in by any means. I feel positive that Mr. Cleveland doe3 not want to serve as President for a third term. He feels that he has done enough for his country and no longer cares for the successes or defeats of politics. I feel certain mind I don't say 1 am certain that he could not be persuaded to accept a re-nomination. It has not been offered yet. 1 feel certain, and there are little social matters into which it is not necessary to go, that Mr. Cleveland is anxious to get out of politics. He wishes to enjoy the sov ereignty of the citizen rather than the servitude of the State. He is count ing the days and hours until he can return to private life.-' "There are some who say Mr. Cleve land must accept a rcnomination," was suggested. "I feel that he will not." "Then he will have to make a de claration to that effect." "I think," was the reply made slowly, "that he will cither refute or confirm what I have said ut an early day over his own signature." DEATH BEFORE DIVORCE. Teter Mrfieorh of I.ard Corner Fame Stioot lilnmolf. MiMVAtKKK, Wis., Nov. 28. Peter Mctieoch, millionaire, known through out the country as a daring specula tor and keen financier, the man who ran the great lard corner in 1883 and lost millions in its collapse, shot him self this morning at his home on Na tional avenue, just outside of the city, and wus found dead in the bath room of his bis house at lli.lii o'clock. He hud placed the muz.le of a revolver in his mouth and fired. The bullet took an upward course and penetrated the brain. Mcticoeh's domestic troubles un doubtedly led him to take his life. It was announced yesterday that his wife was about to bring suit for di vorce on the ground of incompatibili ty of temper, and it is well known to their acquaintances that their married life had not been happy and they had lived apart for some time. Mctieoch was a man who had ex perienced many reverses and gone un daunted through trials that would have broken down most men. but do mestic scandal was more than heeould hear and immediate cause of his sui cide was no doubt the milking public of the fact nf the impending divorce. No man for years wus better known on the Chicago and Milwaukee Boards of trade than Peter Mctieoch. He was a daring speculator up to the disas trous lard deal of IrtS.'l, when he at tempted to corner the lard of the country and wus buried under the loud. Daniel Wells, jr., of Milwaukee wus interested in the deal, and a long and acrimonious law suit followed. After t he failure of the lard corner, Mctieoch dropped nut of the specula tion, and devoted Ins time to his street railway lines up to I sO. when he sold to a Pittsburg syndicate, headed by Mr. liyan of Now York. Since then he has devoted himself to his various interests, which are of considerable mugnit nde. Mctieoch was married eight years ugo to Mrs, Libby of Kenwood, a Chi cago si: hurb.
