Chicago, July 9. At least ten per
sons were drowned and incalculable
damage was done by a storm which
wept over this city and suburban re
torts north of here yesterday after
noon. Six of the dead perished at
Lake Geneva, Wis., and the other four
lost their lives in Lake Michigan.
The storm came from the Northwest
almost without warning and was one
of the most furious known in years.
The day had been intensely hot, and
hundreds of people had gone out on
the lake in excursion vessels, sailboat
and rowboats. There was only about
twenty minutes warning of the ap
proach of the storm, and it is a wonder
that the loss of life was not far greater
than it was, but all the excursion
Bteamers and nearly all the sailboats
managed to reach land in safety. There
were, however, many thrilling es
capes, and all night long police, life
saving crews and other persons were
out on the beach seeking for traces of
missing boats. There were many re
ports of overturned vessels in the lake,
but so far as can be found out now
only four lives were lost here, though
to-day may add to the list.
Charles Klein, John Boss and
Charles L. Shook were out in a row
boat when the storm burst, and of
them no trace has yet been found.
At Lake Geneva, a noted summer
resort, just before the storm broke,
the steam launch Dispatch started on
its last trip of the day with Father
Hogan and sister of Harvard, 111., Dr.
Franz, assistant superintendent of the
Elgin asylum, and his wife and child,
with John Preston in charge of the
boat. The vessel had not gone half a
mile when the hurricane bore down.
The air in an instant was filled with
leaves and broken limbs of trees and
the waves were lashed into small
(Mean billows. The hail and rain
which followed the first gust was the
most furious ever seen there. It was
possible to see the little boat from
' both landings and the boatmen
Watched the battle. The storm was
directly behind it. The first gust
drove the nose of the boat far into the
waves and it was feared that the Dis-
?atch had died at the first onslaught,
t came up, however, with
the next crest, but the
glasses showed that one passenger
was missing. This was probably Miss
Hogan, as the searchers found her
body a mile from the wreck with a
life preserver fixed in her hand. This
plunging and rolling was continued
for more than an hour when it was
seen that the launch's steam had given
out. Tho excursionists were seen hud
dled in a group in the center of the
boat. One big wave followed another,
beating upon the helpless thing with
increasing fury. It finally rolled over
on its side, turned bottom up and sank.
The men on shore took the bearings,
telephoned to the hotels for help and
the moment the storm permitted
started to search for the bodies. Miss
Hogan's body was found at Kaye's
park about sundown. A most vigorous
search by a hundred men has failed to
get a trace of the others, and it is
. feared they are all in the hull, held by
the engine and machinery against the
bottom of the lake.

POINTS FOR THE PEOPLE.
The "middle of the road" is all
right, but don't stick in the ruts, Peo
All value is independent of money.
Money is simply a medium for exchang
ing articles of value.
The power possessed by the banks
to produce depressions and panics at
their pleasure is a threatening danger
which the people cannot afford to per
mit. This is a growing evil that de
mands the attention of the people.
The part that ba ok credit plays in
effecting commercial exchanges, and
the dangers surrounding its manipula
tion by irresponsible parties has at
tracted widespread attention. Public
interest in this matter is not likely to
diminish. Chicago Express.
If free silver democrats or free sil
ver republicans expect to accomplish
anything of material benefit to the
country they will join the people's

Miss Francis Willard, president of
the W. G T. U., and most widely
known American woman, has, as she
herself acknowledges, at last made the
great discovery that intoxication is not
the cause, but the result of poverty
and oppression. This is the true solu
tion of the great question, and we re
joice to know that Miss Willard so un
derstands it Marshall (Mo.) People's
United States Senator Eoach, of
North Dakota, while attending a col
lege commencement at Columbus, O.,
said that the people west of the Missis
sippi river are solid in favor of free
coinage and if both the old parties
should declare against it there would
be a big split from them and a silver
party would be formed. It would put
a presidential candidate in nomination
next year and the result would be that
the election would be thrown into the
Says the Kansas City Star of late
date: "A three-million dollar 4 per
cent, gold loan of the city of Chicagoof
fered in London was subscribed several
times over yesterday. English capital
ists evidently do not consider Altgeld
and Hinrichsen such powers in Illinois
as the two consider themselves and the
English capitalists are right" Rats!
The return to the free coinage of sil
ver will not set aside a contract to pay
gold, but it would reduce the value of
the gold thus paid.
The silver agitation by democrats
is only to save the party for the offices
it gives. They know that the demo
cratic party cannot give the country
free silver or any other reform. It
has on several occasions made the at
tempt and failed. The democratic
party cannot shake off the money
power, and its proposition to do so is
only to fool the people. The leaders
know that the democratic party would
not stand a ehost of a show for su
premacy now if deserted by the mil
lionaires and English money power.
The Nonconformist says: "The banks,
which made the panic for their own
selfish purposes, are now anxious for a
revival of business as the only means
of stopping the silver agitation. They
hope that a sham pretense of prosper
ity will lull the people to sleep again
and allow things to go on as they
were, with the money power in full
control and able any time to make or
break the country at the turn of a
screw." Just so. The plutes are now
yelling that "confidence is restored,"
while the banks are expanding credits
and the employers are raising wages.
An era of good times is billed to ar
rive, in order to kill off the populists
and the pesky free silverites. It will
come very near doing it, too, "What
fools these mortals be."

Pittsburgh Dispatch. Yes, and if you
will read the declaration of independ
ence you will find a taint of pop
ulism there. You will find the same
taint of populism in the speeches and
writings of Abraham Lincoln. You
will find it in the teaching of every
educated man who is not directly or
indirectly under pay of the money
monopoly. You will find it pervades
the sentiments of every man who is
unselfish enough to wish his neighbor
a better fate than slavery. Sledge
The action of the republican leaguers
at Cleveland forecasts the action of
the republican convention next year.
There is little doubt that the western
free silver men will be able to force
either a straddle or a dodge. There is
but little doubt that after much bluster
and menace they will acquiesce in the
straddle or accept the dodge. Then
the grand old party of high 'moral
ideas will make a campaign for gold
monometallism in the east and for
humbug metallism in the west And
if victory is won, Wall street's choice

duly placed in charge of the finances

Dallas, Texas, July 9. Judge
George Clark, of Waco, has submitted
an opinion as to the legality of the pro
posed Corbett-Fitzsimmons glove con
test. The opinion is very exhaustive
and lengthy. His conclusions are:
First That the original act of 1691
was wholly inoperative.
Second That when its provisions
were re-enacted in the penal code of
1895 it was still inoperative for want of
some court to try the offense.
'Ihird That the law was repealed by
the revised statutes, which go into ef
fect on September 1, 1895.
Fourth That there is now no law
upon the statute book of Texas pro
hibiting pugilistic encounters, and
that upon a payment or tender of the
license fee prescribed for such exhibi
tion, there is no lawful power in the
state, under present laws, to interfere
with the exhibition. Judge Clark gave

The Baltimore Plan,
now practically endorsed by President Cleveland, is attracting
universal attention because it is based on the evident fact that
the currency and banking systems of the country must be re
formed. But is the Baltimore plan a reform? It gives the associated
banks the power to expand the currency and relieve the country.
It also gives them the power to contract it at will and create
universal distress for their own private gain.
It puts the credit of the government behind every bank note.
It donates all but half of one per cent of the profit on the note
issue to the banks, and it leaves plenty of opportunities for a
Napoleon of Finance to wreck a bank and leave the government
to pay the notes.
It leaves the banks free to demand the highest interest that
the several states will allow, and affords no relief to farmers and
business men of moderate capital.
