Lincoln, Neb., May 13. Yesterday
afternoon Lincoln presented a torn-up
appearance. Portions of trees and
other sorts of debris were scattered
along the streets, while here and there
an upturned delivery wagon or buggy
dotted the pavements. Several build
ings were overturned while others had
shingles blown off. Most of the bill
boards in the city were either blown
down or damaged to a greater or less
extent. Awnings, especially those on
the east and north sides of streets, were
torn from their fastening. All this
was caused by a very severe wind and
rain storm which struck the city from
the southwest about 4 o'clock. For
three hours clouds gathered in the
west and south and continued to gath
in force till 4, at which time it came,
gently at first, but increasing in force
until it had attained a velocity of 80
miles per hour. A heavy ram came
with the wind, accompanied by very

The storm lasted fully ten minutes
and did considerable damage, which is
only partially mentioned below:
Seventy nine cars were blown over
in the Burlington yards. Out at the
asylum the wind tore away the roof of
,the dynamo building and flooded all
the electrical machinery. Ihe iron
roof was hurled 1,000 feet away, and
iron rafters scattered in all directions.
Large trees in the beautiful grove
were broken as pipestems. Superin
tendent Abbott says the damage will
run up into thousands.
At Lincoln park the new amphithea
ter was partially overturned and the
roof blown off.
The Catholic mission at First and E
was blown over and at Eighth and B

William Wellman had an exciting ex
perience west of the city on the flats
where the Salt creek ditch crosses the
road. He was in a wagon cceiingto
town when the storm struck him, and
he got out of his wagon to help a little
girl who was lying fiat in the road, un
able to rise for the wind. Just then
a fearful gust of wind took him off his
feet and hurled him down the embank
ment into a shallow pond of water,
where he had to lie until the wind sub
sided. When the worst of the storm
was over he got up and found his team
had run away, leaving his wagon a
wreck. He carried the little girl to the
first house he came to and where her
father found her later.
A velocity of eighty miles an hour
mean a pressure of thirty-two pounds
to the square foot exposed, and is what
is called a hurricane. This velocity
was maintained for five minutes, but a
velocity of sixty miles was maintained
for twenty minutes. Only twice before
has a velocity of eighty miles an hour
been reached in Lincoln, during the
past six years, once in in March 1803,
and once in June 1894.
The precipitation was about 2. IS.

Omaha, Neb., May 18. The "sur
face cock" of the engine attached to
a special train conveying General
Manager Holdrege of the Burlington
to the Black Hills, blew out between
Hyannis and Whitman yesterday
afternoon. The Fireman, B. L. Har
ris, was probably fatally scalded and
injured. He was blown from the en
gine by the explosion and was later
picked up by some section men and
taken to Whitman. Engineer Corn
wall was badly scalded, but remained
with the engine. The locomotive
could not be stopped and it ran at a
terrific rate of speed for three miles
before it "died."

Falls City, Neb., May 13. Mary
Carr, a blooming widow of thirty-eight
who resides near the creamery, is so
fortunate as to have two lovers, Theo
dore Defew and John Brannan, who
was formerly her husband. Chance
brought them together at her house
yesterday afternoon. They quarrelled,
naturally, and the reason why Defew
is not dead and Brannan not a mur
derer, is because Mary hit the latter's
hand and the bullet imbedded Itself In
the ceiling instead of in Defew. The
parties were arrested and were bound
over for trial.

Populists .Marching on.
Mr. Parsons, member of the national
committee, writes from the eastern part
of Oregon thus: "The campaign now
has progressed so far that we caubegin
to reckon where "we are at." In this
county we will elect our joint senator,
three representatives and our lull county
ticket. Two years ago we polled 1234
votes. The republicans 1550, and dem
ocrats 800. We are making steady in
roads upon the enemy and according to
the precincts polled we have gained suf
ficient to give us a clear plurality. In
every county m eastern uregon a line
condition exists and 1 believe we will
carry nine out 01 every twelve counties
in the eastern section ol the state, in
western Oregon our affairs look very
promising and we will make great gains
there. Portland has been our chief stum
bling block in the past giving 5,000 le
publican majority. This year all is
changed there. The republicans are di
vided into two nearly equal factions-
Mitchell and anti-Mitchell, with hostile
city and county tickets in the field. This
insures the election of ex-Governor fen-

NEBRASKA'S SOLDIERS HOME.
It is Better Supplied and Mora Cheaply
Maintained Than over Before.
Grand Island, Nebk., May 1,1896.
Special to the Nebraska Independent:
Reaching Grand Island in my round of
missionary work for the Nebbaska Inde
pendent and having a few hours on my
hands between trains I concluded to
visit the Soldiers and Sailors Home loca
ted at this place, and acting upon the
thought I boarded the street car and
after a half hours ride we reached the
home, about three miles distant from
the post office in the city. Arriving at
the home, we were shown into the office
and met for the first time Commandant
W. Wilson, Adjutant Dan. Althen, Or
derly Kirkpatrick and other officers
antf employees whose names we do not
rf.-collect, except Haunab, zimmer ma
tron. It was my privilege through the
kindness of Orderly Kirkpatrick to look
through the books which are kept in con
nection with the business anaira 01 tne
home and I can truthfully etate for the
benefit of all concerned that the books
are kept in a business and scholarly
manner and that all branches of affairs
of the home are conducted on the most
improved and economic plans. In my
talks with the boys wno are maKing
their home at this institution, I find the
bet of feeling, not only with Command
ant Wilson, but with all the subordinate
officers. They are especially pleased with
Commandant Wilson's management and
control of the home; to a large degree ne
has done away with the red tape prac
tices of former Commandants wnicn nas
operated in a large measure in bringing
about a better discipline, ine men ueing
placed more on their honor as men and
citizens than as common soldiers sub
ject to the beck and call of an exacting
officer. As a whole it may be etated
without fear of successful contradiction,
that compared with former times
the home is. notwithstanding the large
number and the necessarily different
temperaments there congregated, a very
happy and contented family. There is
at this time a membership in the home of
243 and and a total all told in the home
To give the average citizen of Nebraska
an idea of the expense incurred and the
strict economy practised by the present
management of the home as compared
with former management, it will only be
necessary to state that the cost per cap-

per capita with the exception 01 a iew
first months of Commandant Wilson s
time has not been more than 13 cents, as
against from 16 to 17 cents per capita
under former managment, and in addi
tion to this it can be truthfully
stated that the home at present re better
supplied with the necessaries ot ine man
formerly. The general government pays
to the state for the use oi the home
cents per quarter per capita, which
makes the snug sum of $4,600,00 for

Central City, Neb., May 5, '96.
Editor Independent: I see by reading
your paper that you still keep your "eye"
on the middle of the road, and like the
republicans try to make the whole
world believe that Cleveland-Carlisle and
Tobe Caster and a few more traitors are
the democaatic party, assuming that
that the goldbug element will control
the Chicago convention. If you are in
formed as well as your paper indicates,
you know there is not the slightest
chance for the administration democrats
to be in the majority at the Chicago
convention. If we as silver democrats
run the goldbugs out of the temple, as
Christ did, for making his house of wor
ship a den of thievs, are we not entitled
to the respect of the people. When did
you ever see the people of any political
party rise up and rebuke their president
as we democrats have done? If you
had in former years witnessed the same
in the republican party would the republi
can party have treated the traitors in
their party as we are treating the trai
tors in ours? If you had, you would have
never left or had any occasion for leav
ing the "grand old party," aa they still
You seem to think it would be an ever
lasting disgrace to fuse with the Bilver
democrats and elect a president. You
go on the plan of a goldbug republican.
"If I can't get in myself, I would rather
have a goldbug democrat in." The poli
ticians and the editors of the pop party,
if they can't get in power themselves
would prefer to see the old party in
power, where they got their training. It
is not the reform you want so much as
it is you want to get into power. You
are afraid if you help the free silver
democrats and should succeed in electing
a democrat president on the silver issue,
you would lose the pop party. That of
course is a delusion. 1 thinK the pop
party is all right and if I had or do have
occasion to leave my party your party
woudl be my choice, but simply because
we have had a few more traitors in our
jcamp than you have had, is not in my
Judgment any good reason for me to
leave. Whenever the traitors are in the
majority, then and not 'till then, will I
feel justified in leaving.
We still believe in the pure democratic
rinciples many of which you have
adopted in your platform with some
others that you will ultimately drop.
Do you think that any good can come
out of a reform movement for the pops
to fuse with the republicans as you have
done in the last two years. If
the republicans work in the senate and
congress with you, and represent your
principles more than that of the demo
crats, then I would say go with them,
but you say you left the republican party
because it went back on the pure princi
ples your party represented, and now,
you in many placesloin hands with them
and can't join hands with the free silver
democrats to get a silver president and
a congress on the very qestion we both
agree. You seem to think you would
loose your character if you do this, bnt
you know better. We democrats nomi
nated Holcomb, your pop governor,
Did we loose anything by it? I say no,
We are glad of it and would do the same
thing over, W by? Because we are in the
monority in this state and love reform
better than office, (see?) We did not
loose our party organization and were
not afraid of it, as you seem to fear a large
skehtoh dangling in front of the par
There could be a union of all the forces
and get the present reform if the pops
would agreeand yet you would hold your
organization and promote the interest
of the country. I believe the larger part
of the pops want to affect this very

we cannot win. Why not do this when
it is so much neeced? Respectfully yours,

THE FRATERNAL ORDERS.
The Money Power is Determined
to Down Them.
Benedict, Neb., May 1896.
Editor Independent: Today I was
in the office of J. E. Hoover, an attor
ney of this place, and be showed me a
circular letter from a gentleman in Lin
coln on the subject of selecting members
for the next legislature, wbo will not be
favorable to the legislation that is sure
to be introduced in favor of the old line
companies ana against an mutual, ira-
ternal and benevolent associations in
the state. It seems that all fraternal
orders in the state are at last waking up
to the fact that the monopolistic money
power of the country is determined that
no organization snail live mar aoes not
belong to them, and that it alone has
the God-given rignt to do tne business
of this land and tax the people what it
thinks fit. The populist party has
warned the people many a day and many
times a day that all institutions of the
people must inevitably pass away and
all power be given into the hands of
monopoly unless the masses are willing
to lay aside party prejudice and come to
gether at the ballot box for self preser
vation. Tne trouble nas never reacnea
the benevolent orders like the A. O. U.
W., M. W. A. and the K. 0. T. M. They
cry out in their fear to one another a
vain :ry, except tney repent 01 partisan
folly and bigotry. I send you a copy of
Mr. Hoover's letter in reply to the gen
tleman. Mr. H. has been a strong pop
ulist since the founding of the party and
believes with all his heart, soul, mind and
streneth in the night 01 tne masses to
earn an honest living, and keep and edu
cate their families as Americans have tne
blood bought right to do.
