St. Louis, Mo., Juno I . The situa
tion in St Louis, ns viewed from tho
Republic's standpoint, is as follows:
St Louis Identified dead, 130; un
known dead, 18; missing, 33; fatally
Injured, 10; seriously Injured iuhos
pitats, 401; estimated injured out3ide
of hospitals, l.OuOj property loss, esti

East St Louts Identified dead, 110;
unknown dead, il; dying, A; missing, 10;
seriously injured in hospitals, 200;
estimated Injured outside of hospitals,
2,000; property loss, estimated, sri.OOU,1
000. It Is believed that the deaths of'tho
Injured and tho future recovery of
bodies will bring the St Louis death
list well up to 200.
In East St Louis the city officials
dcclarod that they liavo hope that the
death roll on that side of tho river
will not exceed 150, but the ruins upon
which the rescuers havo not yet begun
work muy swell tho total far beyond
that figure. j
The building contractors of that
city have been overwhelmed with or
ders for rebuilding, and tho work of
wiping out tho havoc of the storm is
proceeding with much energy.
Tho Commercial Exchange an
nounced last night that the iudi
torium to bo used for tho Republican
national convention lias been repaired
and now shows not tho slightest effect
of tho storm.
Although thousands of men havo
been at work night and day clearing
away tho wreckage in tho path of the
tornado, they have scarcely mude u
perceptible Impression toward restor
ing the chaotic confusion to anything
like order. Passageways have been
mutte through eomo of the principal
thoroughfares, ib is true, but for the
most part the streets are still choked
with the battered remains of homes
und factories, hospitals and churches.
Tho path of tho storm is fully a
mile and a half wide. It btarts away
out in the suburbs of tho city, where
b.autlful homes aro located. Taking
u zig-zag course, it extends down
through where tho densely populated
tenement houses are located, fully six
.lilies, und crosses the river.
At the extreme limits of the city to
the west is a quarter known as Tower
Grove park. It is populated by peo
ple of wealth, and the houses are
palatial, with beautiful grounds, etc.
To the southeast of this is another
region of wealth. The storm moved
its way through them both. Magnifi
cent residences in both places were
wiped off the face ot the earth in
some cases, while in others roofs were
carried away, trees torn from their
roots and all the picturesque beauty
The number of families left home
less by the devastation along the path
of tho storm will reach up into the
thousands. In many instances these
unfortunates have lost all their
worldly possessions. Many will for
days be dependenton charity und their
more fortunate neighbors for shelter.
There is a piobubility that one man,
whose horribly mangled body was
taken to the morgue, was not killed
by the storm. A gentleman who was
in the neighborhood of the Union
depot powerhouse just after tho storm
asserts that somo of the crowd there
assaulted a ghoul cauirht tuieving and
bent him to death. His story is that
while viewing tho wreck he saw half
a dozen men jump on u man who had
been loafing about in the crowd.
.Some one hit the in. in with a club,
felling him to the ground. Then tho
crowd jumped on the mm and kicked
him until he wus unconscious. Some
one cried "lynch the thief." Then the
crowd picked up his limp foim and
curried it to Rustell avenue, where
they put It In a dirt wagon and varied
It off.

1 he effect of these s'rlngent meas

of Police Ganey swore in fifty depu

of tho city. Tho property loss is hard
to estimate, butS2,000,000to $3,000,000
are conservative figures.
Lato figures rather tend to rcduco
tho estimates of the number killed,
and tho probabilities aro that it will

It Can HcittuiT.
Washington May 29. As has been
confidently expected, the president
sent to tho house to-day a vigorous
message vetoing tho rivers and har
bors appropriation bill. The full text
of the message is ns follows.
"There aro 417 items of appropria
tion contained In this bill, and every
part of the country Is represented in
the distribution of its favors. It'
directly appropriates or provides for
tho immediate expenditure of nearly
8:1,000.000 for river and harbor work.
This sum is in addition to appropria
tions contained in another bill for
similar purposes, amounting to a little
more than S3,0o0,000, which has
already been favorably considered at
the present session of Congress. The
result Is that the contemplated imme
diate expenditures for the objects
mentioned amount to about Si", 000,000.
"A more startling feature of this
bill is its authorization of contract
for river and harbor work amounting
to more than S02.O0O.00O. Though tho
payment of theso contracts are, in
most cases, so distributed that they
are to bo met by future appropria
tions, more than $3,000,000 on their
account is included In the direct ap
propriations above mentioned.
"Of the remainder-nearly S-0,000,000
will fall due during the fiscal year
ending June 30, 1M8, and amounts
somewhat less In the years immedi
ately succeeding. A few contracts of
a like character, authorized under pre
vious statutes, are still outstanding,
und to meet payments on these more
than 3,000,000 must be appropriated
in tho Immediate future. If, there
fore, this bill becomes a law, the obli
gations which will be imposed on the
government, together with the appro
priations mude for immediate expend
iture on account of rivers and har
bors, will amount to about SsU,000,
000. "Nor is this all The bill directs
numerous surveys and examinations,
which contemplate new work and
further contracts, aud which portend
largely increased expenditures and
obligations. There is no ground to
hope that in the face of persistent und
growing demands the aggregate of
appropriations for the smaller schemes
not covered by contracts will be re
duced or even remain stationary. For
the fiscal year ending June 30, 180o,
such appropriations, together with
the installments on contracts which
will be duo in thntyeur, can hardly
be less than 530,000,000. and it may
reasonably bo apprehended that the
prevalent tendeuey towurds Increased
expenditures of this sort und the con
cealment which postponed payments
afford for extravagance will increase
the burdens churgcable to this account
in succeeding years.
"In view of the obligation imposed
upon me by the constitution it seems
to me quite clear that I only dis
charge a duty to our people when I
interpose my disapproval of the legis
lation proposed. I learn from official
sources that there are appropriations
contained in tho bill to pay for work
which private parties havo actually
agreed with tho government to do in
consideration of their occupancy of
public property. I am convinced that
the bill now under consideration will.
open the way to Insidious and increas
ing abuses, and is itself so extravagant
as to be especially unsuited to tiiese
times of depressed business aud result
ing disappointment in government
"This consideration is emphasized
by the prospect that the public treas
ury will be confronted with other ap
propriations made at tho present ses
sion of Congress amounting to more
than 500,000.000. Individual econ
omy and careful expenditures are
sterling virtues which lead to thrift
and comfort. Economy and the ex
action of clear justification for the ap
propriation ot public moneys by the
servants of the people are not only
virtues, but solemn obligations.
"To the extent that the appropria
tions contained in this bill uro insti
gated by private Interests and to
promote local or individual projects
their continuance cannot fail to stim
ulate an injurious paternalism and
encourage a sentiment among our
people, already too prevalent, that
their attachment to our government
may properly test upon the hope and
expectation of direct and personal
favors, and that the extent to wuich
they are realized muy furnish an es
timate of the value of governmental
care. 1 believe no greater danger
confronts us as a nation than the un
happy decadence among our people of
genuine and trustworthy love aud
affection for our government as tho
embodiment of the hiirhest and best
aspirations of humanity and not ns'
the giver of gifts, and beciuse its mis
sion is the enforcement of exact jus
tice und equality and not the allow
ance of unfair favoritism.
'I hope I may bo permitted to sug
gest at a time when the issue of gov
ernment bonds to roaintnin the credit
and financial standing of the country
is a subject ot criticism, thut the con
tracts provided for in this bill would
create obligations of the United States
amounting to S.-'.000,0(i,, no less bind
ing than Its bouds for that sum,

KuMla In Trnyorful Attitude.
London, May 2G. Sir Edwin Arnold
In his dispatch to tho London Daily
Telegraph In regard to- the uoronatlon
of the czar, says: 'The edifleo itself
(the Cathedral of tho Assumption) Is.
minute, but its inner glories nnd
sanctuaries arc such that you feci as
if you were standing at tho heart of
Home jeweled cavern of dreamland.
To feel, however, as tho devout Rus
sian feels in this astonishing place,
you must know something of tho
overwhelming associations clustering
around it
"The most impressive moment was
when all, including tho metropolitan,
were prostrate on their knees in,
prayer for the protection and guid
ance of the czar. He alono remained
standing a lonely flguro in tho
thronged -cathedral a lonely figure
in his empire. For at this inlonse
moment all tho empire is practically
on its knees for him before the throno
of heaven. Ono can hardly bear to
look upon his face at this prodigious
instant, when a hundred million
hearts concentrate their thoughts und.
supplications upon that single head.
Imperial lofty, confident, pcrhap ho
is; but how isolated, how solitary,
how ulono!
"Now commences the striking feat
ure of tho ceramouy, which fills tho
mind with inexpressible sympathy
and almost with compassionthe
molting of loyalty into the family
passion characteristic of tho Smv,
With an exquisite softness of voieo
and gesture, tho emperor calls to him
his empress. A passing tremor seems
to shake the fair form which arose in
obedience to the summons, but, with
a'l dignity and grace, she falls upon,
her knees before her august lord u
sight as touching as it is majestic, her
long hair looso upon her white neck,
her splendid garments trailing in a
sheeny glory; her ungloved humls
meekly clasped every inch a quceu,
though not yet crownod."
Dr. Dillon of the Daily Toleirraph
describes the lighting of the Kremlin
as follows: "At 0 o'clock in the even
ing tho emperor appeared on tho bal
cony of the palace. wreathed in smiles,
his figure adorned lu medals and
ribbons. He advanced with a grace
ful bow and offered to the czuriua u,
curjous bouquet Directly the czar
ina's hand touched the nosegay, every
flower and bud took fire and at. tho
same moment tho whole of tho Krem
lin burst into llame. The thunder of
".O.OOo voices rent tho skys, followed
by snatches of song nui shrieks of
delight as the various figures in flro
came into sight, mingled with howls
of pain as some unfortunate person
was crushed and disabled by the care
less crowd. "'
