Other Building * Torn to Pieces.
NAPER , Neb. , June 22. A terrific
tornado went down the Keya Paha
valley , twenty miles nor of Stuart ,
Holt county , at sundown last evening
and left death and desolation in its
wake. Eight persons dead and several
others injured is the result of the
The dead : Jacob Greening aged 55 ;
Maggie Greening , aged 12 ; John Green
ing , aged 8 ; Mary Greening , aged 6 ;
Jacob Greening , aged 3 ; Clara Ander
son , aged 7 ; Ida Anderson , aged 5 ;
Bertha Anderson , aged 10.
The injured : Mrs. Jacob Greening ,
seriously ; Theodore Anderson , aged 8 ,
dangerously ; Mrs. August Anderson ,
in a critical condition ; Otto Metz , se
vere bruises ; Henry Metz , leg broken.
The weather had been extremely sul
try all day and about 6 o'clock storm
clouds gathered in the northwest and
soon were seething , boiling , black
masses. Three funnel-shaped clouds
formed , one of which followed the
valley in its mission or ruin and
It first paid a visit to the home of
Henry Metz. It was seen aprpoaching
by Mr. Metz , and he and his brother
Otto went into a slough , lay down
and hung onto the grass. They were
picked up by a twister , carried 200
yards and dropped , then picked up
again and carried back , then picked
up a third 'time ' and flung to the place
where they were first. Otto is badly
injured. Henry had a leg broken.
The tornado then paid a visit to the
homo of Johii Berg and scattered out
buildings and farm machinery around ,
but injured no one.
From there it went to Jacob Berg's ,
upsetting a granary full of corn , and
then came back and took another
chance at the corncrib , reducing it to
Then it whirled to the home of John
Hauff and tore it up badly , but hurt
It then struck the dwelling of Ja
cob Greening , killing Jacob , Maggie ,
John Mary and Jacob , jr. The only
one of the family to escape is Grace
Greening , aged 14.
Your correspondent today witnessed
the gruesome sight at the place where ,
twenty-four hours before the Greening
family had lived in peace and happi
ness. Not a vestige of the house re
mained , while out on the bare ground
in the morning sun , with only a blan
ket to cover their nakedness , lay the
father and four dead children , a bruis
ed and blackened mass of humanity , .
Four horses , a lot of sheep and other
domestic animals were killed at this
place , while a new mower was picked
up , carried 100 yards and twisted out
From here the twister went through
big timber on the bottoms , smash
ing it down like so many reeds , and
struck the new bridge across the
Keya Paha. The bridge was totally
It then took a jump and struck the
house of August Anderson a quarter
of a mile distant. Mrs. Anderson was
home with her children , the husband
nt a neighbor's. Seeing the storm
coming , Mrs. Anderson thought the
chicken coop at the brow of the hill
ii safer place and took the children
and went into it. The cyclone wreck
ed both houses , killing Clara and Ida.
Mrs. Anderson and baby were tak
en up in the air thirty feet and violently
lently dashed to the ground. Mrs.
Anderson is in a critical condition ,
while the baby was not injured in
the least. Bertha Anderson , aged 10 ,
died this afternoon making eight dead
altogether. Theodore Anderson , aged
S , is dangerously hurt. Mr. Anderson
probably owes his life to being away
Nothing was left around the An
derson place except wreckage , and the
valley up and down a long ways is
liteered with broken boards and house
hold furniture in a thousand pieces.

Chaflee'a Koport Show * Other Kllllngi
Since Pekln'n Capture.
WASHINGTON , Juno 21. The re
port of Major General Chaff.ee on the
campaign in China has appeared for
publication at the War department.
Among other matters it contains spe
cial reports upon the Russian , Japan
ese , French and British troops ; also
reports on equipment , supplies , etc. ,
of foreign troops , and reports on dif
These reports were made by United
States officers , and from a military
view they are of considerable inter
est , but all the main facts have hereto
fore been published. Some of General
Chaffeo's comments are interesting.
At one point bo says : "For about
three weeks following the arrival of
the relief column at Pekin the con
dition In and about the city and along
the line of communication was bad.
Looting of the city , uncontrolled for
aging in the surrounding country and
seizure by the soldiers of everything a
Chinaman might have , such as vege
tables , eggs , poultry , sheep , cattle and
other articles , whether being brought
to the city or found on the farms ;
indiscriminate and general unprovoked
shooting of Chinese in city , country
and along the line of march , and the
river all this did not tend , as was
natural , to gain for the troops the
confidence of the masses , with whom
it is certain we have no quarrel , but
who were in need of their labor.
"It is safe to say that where one
real Boxer has been killed since the
capture of Pekin , fifty harmless cool
ies and laborers on farms , including
not a few women and children , have
been slain. No doubt the Boxer ele
ment is largely mixed with the mass
of the population , and by slaying a
number one or more Boxers might be
taken in. "
General Chaffee speaks of the re
straint ho placed upon the American
troops. The Japanese commander also
made it known that general war on all
classes was not intended. General
Chaffee says he opposed entering the
Forbidden City unless looting was
prohibited. This was agreed to and
he thinks but little looting has been
done there , though articles have been
offered for sale said to have been
taken from the Forbidden City.
SHOOTS AT "BOSS" SHEPARD.
Mexican Assassin Attempts to Take Iilfe
of Man of Prominence.
NEW YORK , June 21. A special to
the Times from El Paso , Tex. , says :
Word has been received from Chiahu-
ahua that an attempt has been made
to assassinate A. R. Shepard , who did
so much to build up the city of Wash
ington during the administration of
President Grant. Shepard , after
leaving the District of Columbia many
years ago , went to a small settlement
in the republic of Mexico , where he
since has been engaged in the mining
business. On Saturday , while Mr.
Shepard was away quite a distance
from his mine at Batopilas , he was
shot at by a Mexican in ambush , the
bullet grazing his head. Shepard beat
a hasty retreat in the direction of the
settlement assassin following
, the would-be
lowing and keeping up a running fire.
Luckily none of the bullets went true
to the mark and the intended victim
finally reached the door of his house.
Has to be Killed.
ROCKFORD , 111. , June 21. A mani
as took possession of the Illinois Cen
tral depot here 'tonight and opened
ire with a revolver upon everybody in
sight. Several persons had narrow
escapes. Policeman FranK Sully at

twice shot at. He returned the fire
and killed the madman , sending a bul
let close to his heart. From papers
'ound on the dead man his name ap
pears to be A. G. Peterson and his res
idence is Chicago. What seems to be
a will was also found. It is written

daughter all that I have. My secret
I carry to the grave. "

The United States Government Eoviewa
Its Foreign Relations ,
COVERS THE SPANISH WAR PERIOD
Exhaustive Summary of Official Cor
respondence Ouceo , Listens to Pope-
About to Decree Termination of Cuban
WASHINGTON , June 20 The
American red book for 1898 compris
ing the foreign relations during the
eventful period of the Spanish-Amer
ican war , has just made its appear
ance. It contains an exhaustive sum
mary of the official correspondence.
The Dupuy ed Lome ini'Ment and the
blowing up of the Maine are treated
under separate heads. The first offi
cial notification to Spain that the Uni
ted States expected the independence
of Cuba was in a dispat"h from Sec
retary Hay to Minister \Voodford on
March 28 , 139S. The president had
previously instructed Mr. Woodford to
endeavor to have Spain grant Cuba
"full self-government. " Spain at once
asked the meaning of this term. In
reply , Secretary Hay cabled , "Full self-
government , with indemnity , would
mean Cuban independence. "
It'apepars that just before the war
broke out Minister Woodford sent
word that the queen regent , yielding
to the request of the pope , was about
to decree a termination of the war in
Cuba for a period of six months. Mr.
Woodford was hopeful this would
avert a crisis in the trouble between
Spain and the United Stales , but this
hope was not realized , as congress
soon after adopted the resolutions of
intervention. The peace negotiations ,
both in Washington and Paris , are
given in extenso. When the acquisi
tion of the Philippines came up Secre
tary Hay cabled Mr. Day , baying : "The
sentiment in the United States is al
most universal that the people of the
Philippines , whatever else be done ,
must be liberated from Spanish dom
ination. In this sentiment the pres
ident fully concurs. Nor can we per
mit Spain to transfer any of the is
lands to another power. Nor can we
invite another power or powers to
join the United States is sovereignty
over them. We must either hold them
or turn them back to Spain. Consequently
quently , grave as the responsibilities
and unforeseen as are the difficulties
which are before us , the president can
see but one plain path of duty the
acceptance of the archipelago. "
Early in the war the State depart
ment directed our ambassador at Lon
don to discreetly sound the British
government upon war vessels using
the Suez canal. In reply it was slated
that the British government held that
we were unquestionably entitled to
the use of the canal for warships. The
declarations of neutrality bv most of
the foreign governments , except Ger
many , are given , and as to Germany ,
Ambassador White gives a conference
with Baron von Buelow , in which
the latter says that Germany has not
for twenty years issued a proclamation
NEXT MOVE IS AMERICA'S.
United States Must read if Russian Game
WASHINGTON , June 20 The sit
uation as to the retaliatory tariff
war between the United States and
Russia is such that the next move
must be made by the United States ,
if the contest is to be pursued. Sec
retary Gage , in his letter , raises the
question whether the Russian govern
ment has not infringed upon the
rights of the United States under trea
ty. Article vi of the treaty of com
merce with Russia of 1832 reads : "No
higher or other duties shall be impos
ed on the importation into the United
States of any article the produce or
manufacture of Russia ; and no higher
or other duties shall be imposed on
the importation into the empire of
Russia of any article the product of
manufacture of the United States than
are or shall be payable on the lige
article being the produce or manufac
ture of any foreign country. "

STRIKES AT AMERICAN TRADE.
Bassian Government Imposei High Tariff
Rate Upon White llraln.
WASHINGTON , June 19. The Rus
sian ambassador , Count Casslni , has
communicated to the state department
that In consequence of the action of
the American government through an
order of March last applying tariff re
strictions against Russian petroleum
imported into this country , the Rus
sian minister of finance , M. DeWItte ,
has issued an order , dated June 7 , im
posing the high tariff rate of the Rus
sian schedule on American white resin
under article Ixxxii of the Russian
tariff law and increasing the rate on
American bicycles under article clxxiil
oithe Russian laws.
This action Is entirely apart from
that taken in connection with the Rus
sian sugar , and is a new development
in the discriminatory duties Imposed
by this government and the retaliatory
duties imposed by Russia. The order
of the Russian minister is to take ef
fect next Friday , or two weeks from
the date of its issuance.

KEARNEY , Neb. , June 18. It has
been decided by the owners to close the
Kearney cotton mill. For some time
past , particularly since the closing of
the Asiatic market , occasioned by the
Chinese war , the mill has been oper
ated at a loss. The Kearney mill was
a direct shipper of special grades of
cotton goods to China. The building
of nearly 200 mills during the last
year , more than three-fourths of them
in the south , has overstocked the
sheeting market , and It is understood
ther is now more than a year's supply
of manufactured goods in storage in
this country. The high price of cotton
has made it impossible to manufac
ture without a loss. Eastern investors
hold mortgage bonds for ? 90,000 , bor
rowed to use as working capital. The
mortgage Is in process of foreclosure
and a decree is expected within thirty
The mill will then be sold. It Is not
improbable that the present owners
will buy the property and reorganize ,
but at this , time it is not possible to
say whether the mill will be operated
again or not. Considering the hard
competition and the condition of the
cotton goods trade the outlook is not
encouraging. There have been various
rumors regarding the purchase of the
property by other interests and the
use of the water power and building
for other purposes , but these cannot be
traced to a reliable source.
A Series of Popular Concerts.
The Bellstedt band , widely and fa

ization may never again occur , and
those who would enjoy a season of rare
entertainment should remember that
the engagement closes with the month.
Concerts take place twice a day , the
afternoon matinees being at reduced
rates of admission. On certain days
railroads are offering a cut in fares.

Latest Quotation * from South Onc u
and Kaniui City.
Cattle There was a very light run.
Puckers nil seemed to want a fairly lib
eral number of cattle and us a result the
feollnp was a little better on all jjood
cattle. There were about twenty loads
of beef steers Included In the receipts
and the market could safely be quoted
stronger , particularly on the good heavy
weights. Packers are not very anxious
for the common stuff and the light-
welsh ts. and on that class the feeling wua
not so much better. In some cases the
choicer bunches sold 5c or even lOc higher
than yesterday , but the situation could
probably best bo described by calling It a
good , strong market. Practically every
thing was sold In good season. The cow
market did not show much change , but
still a little better prices were obtained
for the better grades of corn-fed stuff.
Prices are probably a dime higher than
they were Tuesday , which was the low
day , so that the market Is about back to
where It was on Monday. The grassers
have not Improved as much as the corn-
feds , but still they are selling a little
better than they were on Tuesday.
Hogs The fresh receipts were fairly lib
eral and as there were several loads car
ried over from yesterday the supply on
sale was of good proportions. The mar
ket opened very slow and puckers wer
bidding a&iSoc lower than yesterday's
general market. Sellers did not like the
Idea of selling any lower , and as a re
sult It was somer time before much was
done and the hogs moved toward the
scales very slowly. The bulk of the early
sales went at W.ST sS.O V-i , with some of
the better grades as high as Jo.DT'/fc. The
market , however , grew worse Instead of
better as the morning advanced , and It
finally took pretty good hogs to bring
$5.00. The most of the later sales went at
