Too Maty Cottrtn-Martial.
Army and navy affairs are receiving seri
ous consideration, attention being directed
to them by the fact thit there are now
three courts-martial in progress, viz.- The
Meele-Wild case in Chicago", the McCalla
case m New York, and the Healy case in
San Francisco. In each case the com
manding orlicer is being tried on charges
of unwarranted severity ana cruelty to
those under them. It is probable that
Admiral Walkers squadron of evolution
will result in a court of inquiry when the
squadron returns to the Fnited States,
and a court of inquiry may be ordered in
the caee of Lieut.-Com. Longnecker, at
Newport, P.. L The facts that such a state
of affairs exists is attracting congressional
attention, and resolutions of inquiry into
the number of convictions of soldiers and
sailors by courts-martial, will probably be
offered in congress this week.

Prophets or Disaster.
Three of Oakland's religious cranks, who
have made "Borne howl" for the last two
weeks with warnings of a rloca to come on
April 14, have left for St. Louis, which has
kindly been excepted from the fate of Chi
cago and San Francisco. Prophet Erick

struction of Chicago, Milwaukee. San
Francisco aad Oakland, now languishes in
the Stockton insane asylum, but his fol
lowers are as rampant as evar. Many have
saenfieed their property for half its value,
while others have traded furniture for
horses and wagons with which to make a
hegira to the mountains a few days before
the flood is expected. The meetings of
believers, wno call themselves "Doom
Sealers," are now secretly held to escape
the attention of the police, and the scenes

Frenchman calling himself Itarqois De
Larmont, represented himself as being
the possessor of large estates in France
and extensiTe ranches in Texas, whither he
was proceeding He fell desperately in
love with the tlder iliss ilcEnery and an
engagement was imminent.
On the arziral of the ship at New York,
the govemnr met his daughters at the pier
and was introduced to the marquis. The
goTeraor gave him a most cordial recep
tion, invited him to a special banquet, and
was so well pleased that he introduced him'
to many ew York friends. Suddenly the
marqui3 was called to Texas to look after
his ranches and not wanting to wait for a
remittance, drew through the obliging gov
ernor on a business firm at Baton Houge
for $2,000 and a second draft on soce
other place in Texas for $Go0. He bade a
most affectionate farewell with promises of
an exchange of letters, but was never heard
from again, and the drafts remain unpaid.
The governor has since discovered that the
marquis is a French chef, and is now be
lieved to be in Paris working in a restaur
ant. In the meantime, iliss lIcEnery is
in a state of dismal despair.

of the greatest calamities the county has

duty of the press t j warn the people of

"The damage will be greater below Mem

EDDIE AT THE HELM.
To uns Edwin Gould la Control of Affairs in
the Old Man's Absence.
Wall street is interested in a report that
Mr. Jay Gould is to order hi3 yacht into
commission early this spring and go sail
ing for several months in foreign waters.
Several members of his family will accom
pany him, while his two elder sons, George
and Edwin, will remain at home to
look out for the family's millionaire
interests. The confidence which Mr.
(ould feels in the business capacity and
judgment of his sons i shown by the fact
that during his present extended trip
through the southwest and Mexico, his 22-year-old
sen Edwin has been in full chirge
of the GonlJ railway affairs.
This means more than the transaction
of nieie routine business. Such impor
tant interest-, were probably never before
committed so fully to one of Edwin
Goulds years. He is credited in Wall
street with having drawn one check the
other day for something like $600,000.

THE STORil ULSEWHEKE
A Town lu
Metropolis, 111., was v.sitjd by a fearful
storm, resultiaji in

thi wounding and
its citizens and such
wholesale destruction of property aa was
, never known before. Suddenly there came
from the southwest a rolling mas?, appar
entlybornof the union o two clouds,
which met m mid air and in a moment
' swooped down into the Ohio river and on
t lifting were followed by a column of water
' estimated all the way from oO to 200 feet
m height. 1 bis curious phenomenon
swept onward, striking the river front.
From th"r8 it rushed

flenew nortmn of tht r?irv. rnAiro
path escaping damage more or less aeri- I
ous. A number of buildings were com
pletely demolished. Not one of the mast
prominent and cotiy buildings in the city
escaued. Allen's hotel, Glass Wmton's
stove works, the Metropolis woolen mills,
the First National bank, Witiman car
riage factory, the jail and city buildings,
and the Empire flouring mills and ware
houses are amocg those who contribute
most to tk loss.
The only person killed outright was Em
ily Marshall, a colored woman, but the list
of wounded is Iorrg and it is feared some
of them will die. Among the more seri
ously injured are: Mrs. Mary Keebier,
Mrs. Jeff Shepard, John .Allen, Green

were some marvelous escapes, the most
notable being that of the familv of Wm.
j Mathxas, whose residence was overturned
and earned away, leaving the family on the
lower floor unharmed.
Ia the country the devastation is even
more appalling. Wm. Bruners farm resi
dence and outbuildings were entiroly swept
away. Mrs. George Matthews had her leg
broken. The Kingston chapel and the
graveyard adjoining, gravestones and all,
are blown down. The houses and barns of
many farmers are gone. A quarter of a
million is perhaps not an exaggerated esti
mate of the loss.
A conductor of a Louisville Nashville
train says the whole country from Louis
ville to Cincinnati for many miles is amass
of wrecked trees, houses and other debris.
At LaGrange great damage was done to
property. At Eminence many houses
were wrecked and two or three people
were killed. The trainmen report the
storm an awful one. The -lightning was
I almost incessant, and by its light could be
seen dving timbers and wrecked houses.
Men. women and children were " running

wrecked, together with a large axount of
valuable stock killed. The total loss will
be great. No person is reported killed,
though several received severe bruises.
