Rome, May 0. A monument to Gari

Ex-Premier Crispi delivered an address,
in the course of which he said: "Ital
ians animated by the spirit of those
who suffered for their country will
never consent to let the nation efface
itself. A nation of thirty-one millions
can not count for nothing among
States. We will not brook this humil
iation. In the hour of danger we
shall be inspired by the memory of
Garibaldi, and on tho day ox victory
we shall sing a hymn in his honor."
Serloaa Aspect of the Strike.
London, May 30, The determination
of the Durham miners to pool in the
strike threatens to bring untold suffer
ing upon them and others who are
thrown out of work by the lack of f ueL
So-serious is the outlook for the work
ing people that the Rt. Rev. Brooke
Foss Westcott, Bishop of Durham, has
written a letter to the Coal Mine Own
ers' association suggesting that they
accept the miners' offer to return to
work at 10 per cent reduction, and re
fer the question of the other 3 1-2 per
cent to arbitration.
Plana of the Liberals.
London, May 30. Whatever may be
the intentions of the government as to
dissolution, the Liberals are evidently
preparing for a campaign that will
surpass any in the past in the
energy apd activity to be displayed,.
The striking feature of the contest will
be the wonderful exhibition of vigor
by Mr. Gladstone. A committee has
already made arrangements for
speeches to be delivered by Mr. Glad
stone in every pariah of Midlothian.

O.OVERNOR BOIES' HOPES.
A Beller that the Hill Mem Will Go to
111m at Chicago.
Des Moines, Iowa, May 30. It is de
veloping here by talk among Demo
cratic politicians, including some of
the delegates to the Chicago conven-
Jien, that Iowa expects to be the bene
Iciary if Mr. Cleveland's name is with
drawn in the convention. It is assumed
that Senator Hill is not a possibility
under any circumstances.
Mr. Croker is reported at this end of
the line to think very well of Mr.Boies
and his campaign, and since Palmer
has practically lost his own State it is
regarded here as almost sure that the
Hill men in New York will go to Boies
as the available western man, if one is
to be chosen.
IOWA CROP REPORT.
Farmers Greatlv Encouraged by a Week
Des Moines, Iowa, May 30. This
week's weather crop bulletin reports
cool and dry weather with abund
ance of sunshine, giving farmers
their first favorable week for
field work; about one-half the corn
planting is done, but it is probable the
acreage will be considerably reduced
even with the most favorable conditions
in the future. Wheat and oats on up
lands are doing well, but oil flooded bot
toms and undrained fields will be very
light. Fruit is slightly injured by frost
and cold winds.
The weekly bulletins of the bureau
will hereafter be issued on Tuesday,
beginning June 7.

INJURED IN A WRECK.
jr M. Gelding of Chicago aad Others Hart
la a Collision Sear Indianapolis.
Indianapolis, May SO At 3:30 this
morning the Panhandle passenger due
here at 3:45 had a collision with a
a freight train near Howland station,
two miles below the city limits, and a
dozen or more persona were injured,
one perhaps fatally. The passenger
train was coming around a long curve
at high speed when both trains sighted
each other simultaneously. When they
came together each was going at the
rate of fifteen miles an hour. The en
gines were wrecked. Most of the pas
sengers were asleep. The injured are
David Inglxh, Indianapolis, freight fire
man: back wrenched and internal injuries,
Conductor Gillis, Indianapolis, of the pas
senger: badly bruised and sprained.
H. O. Pkrime, mail clerk, Indianapolis; nose
cut and badly bruised.
J. H. Goldxkg, Cnicago: injured, internally.
Charles L. Martz, Louisville; face and
Kemp Ridcfxkt, Louisville; beadand hands
Several other were slightly injured.
Ridgeley's injuries were received after
the wreck. The collision awoke him
and he frantically broke a window
and jumped out. The cause of the col
lision is said to be the fact that the op
erater at the Belt road was asleep and
supposing the passenger had gone
through, gave the freight the right of
way. Several thousand dollars' worth
of damage was done to the engines.
CALIFORNIA AGAIN SHAKEN.
Several Earthquake Sh cks Felt at San

in which two Middle Village Indians
were involved has just come to light
The two Indians were taking a boat
load of potatoes to the north shore of
Lake Michigan. They became involved

GREAT LOSS OP LIFE IN A KAN
A Cyclone Works Destruction Merry
Makers In a Hotel Varied la tho
Ruins An Entire Block or Building
Leveled to the Ground.
. Wellington, Kan., May 30. This
city has had a visitation last night
from the funnel-shaped cloud which
plowed its devastating track through
the business part of the town, with im
mense destruction of property and
heavy loss of Ufa. A storm of wind
preceded the cyclone about half an
hour. A few minutes after 0 o'clock
the cyclone struck the city, coming
from the southwest There were no
premonitory signs. Everybody was in
doors, and tho cloud passed with its
destructive rush and awful roar un
seen. Jefferson' avenue, the principal
business street, is lined on both sides
for blocks with ruins.
Those known to be dead are:
ASHER, SIRS. WILLIAM.
CAMPBELL, FRAN D.
FANNINO. MICHAEL, laborer.
HASTIE, JAMES E.
JONES. IDA, dining-room girl at the Phil
SLASHER, MRS. SUSAN, burned.
UNKNOWN MEN, two Salvation army sol
diers. The injured whose names were
Lawrence, James, candidate for Attorney
General. As fast as the injured are found they
are being conveyed to the Grand Army
hall, which serves as a hospital, and
their number is now increased to sixty
three. The number of the dead is "now
reported as being fifty. All of the
finest buildings are in ruins, and every
newspaper office in the city is a wreck.
It is now estimated that the number of
buildings destroyed exceeds 200 and the
majority of them are business blocks.
A ball was in progress at the Phillips
hotel, and the guests were nearly all
there when the storm broke. Seven
bodies, all unidentified at 11 o'clock,
had been taken from the ruins.
To add to the horror, fire broke out
in the debris of Cole Robinson's block
and Mrs. Susan Slasher was burned to
death in that house. A solid block .of
brick buildings containing half a dozen
stores and the Monitor office is in a
neap oi mortar. Micnael canning, a
laborer, was killed there. Four hun
dred dwellings arc crushed. There is
no way of getting at the bodies now in
the ruins. The gas works are on fire
now and that leaves the town without
a sign of light, as tle electric light
plant was blown down.
Thestreets are littered with tin
roofing, cloth awnings, and broken
timbers. Everybody is on the streets
carrying lanterns, and it is utterly im
possible to get at the facta The de
struction is awful, and every minute
adds to the horror of the situation.
The Press, Voice, Standard and Mail
offices are wrecked. The opera-house
and dozens of the best business build
ings are useless. Fine school buildings
and churches are ruiped.
The most appalling scene was that
at the Phillips house. Where a ball was
in progress when tbe cyclone burst
The dancers were given little oppor
tunity to escape from the toppling
structure. As the building began
swaying in the force of the terrific
gale the people in the crowded ball
room made a frantic rush for the doors.
The stairways and halls were imme
diately filled by the crazed men and
women, who tore at each other in their
mad rush for the open air.
With the crash of tbe walls about
and over them there arose a great wail
of despair from the imprisoned and
doomed multitude. As the timbers
crushed down upon the struggling
merrymakers their hoarse cries were
throttled in their throats by the
weight of the mass of timbers above
them. Then came the silence of death
and insensibility, only to be followed a
moment later by the shrill blasts of
the tempest as it rushed on to other
destructive work, and the agonized
shrieks of the injured or dying who
were pinned down in the mass of de
bris. A meeting of the Salvation army was
in progress in a hall near the Robinson
block. The falling walls of this build
ing crushed the hall and many of the
soldiers were injured.
It is known that two of them were
killed and it is probable whentthe
wreck has been cleared away it will
be found that many more perished.
In the midst of a'l these scenes a
heavy rain was falli- drenching
those who had been re. -ercd home
less and. were seeking shelter.
SILVER MEN ADJOURN.
Subscription Started to Carry on the
Fight la Congress.
Washington, May 30. The last day's
session of the silver convention was de
voted to business incident to the clos
ing of the meeting. The executive
board was authorized to employ
a corresponding secretary, whose duty
is shall be to distribute all current
literature on the silver issue.
Chairman Warner said it was neces
sary for the silver people to raise funds
enough to offset the $500,000 which, he
said, he had learned on good authority,
had been raised by anti-silverites to
defeat any legislation by Congress in
favor of free silver and to suppress
that issue in the approach
ing Presidential campaign. About
$2,000 was subscribed and guaranteed
by the delegates present and on behalf
of the silver leagues, principally in
Colorado, to carry on the silver fight
Resolutions were adopted thanking
Chairman Warner and other officers of
-the convention for their exeitions in
behalf of the bimetallic cause, after
which the meeting adjourned subject
to the call of the chairman.

SWEPT BY THE BLAST.
Farther Account ef the Morror at Well
ington. Wichita, Kan., May 30 Severe as
have been some of- the storms which
have visited sections of Kansas this
spring they pale into insignificance be
fore the havoc wrought by the tornado
which devastated Wellington last
night This morning its streets are
strewn with wreckage. Many of Its
brick business houses are piles. of rub
bish and the residences are torn up to
splinters. It took but a minute for the
wind to do its work of destruction.
The town of Harper, about twelve
miles from Wellington, was visited
about the some time as the county
seat, and five or six lives arjs known
to have been lost, though the names
of only three are given. These are:
W. L. STROUHOUN.
G MALLORY AND CHILD.
It is said that nearly every house in
the town was shifted from its founda
tion. Topkka, May 30. The cyelone in
Kansas'seems to have been even more
disastrous than was at first supposed.
Havoc seems to have been wrought in
several villages throughout the State.
The wires are in bad condition and it
is difficult to secure details of the de
vastation. Dispatches received at the Santa Fe
headquarters from trainmen on the
road say that the town of Argonia of
150 inhabitants, and Harper, seat of
Harper county, with 2,300 inhabitants,
have been totally destroyed by the ter
rific blast that wrecked Wellington.
Argonia bears the distinction of being
the first town in Kansas to elect a full
set of women officials. It is impossible
to get news from either place, as all
the wires are gone.
Telegraph service at Wellington is so
badly delayed that it is almost impos
sible to get any message through. At
12:30 this afternoon a heavy hail and
rain storm passed over the section
north of Kansas City, but what dam
age was done it is impossible to learn
now. The Santa Fe has sent special
trains to Argonia and Qarper with all
the help obtainable at Wichita.
Inter-State Commerce Commission.
Minneapolis, Minn., May 30. To
day's hearing before the Inter-State
Commerce commission closed the case

A fire broke out in the post hall
on the parade ground at Fort Nio
brara. The building was used for
headquarters and the officers' club.
The greater part of the post and regi
mental records were saved, but the
building was totally destroyed. It was
valued at $10, 000. The cause of the
fire is unknown. It required the ut
most exertion to save the barracks,

N.K. Griggs, of Beatrice, talks
of the weather in the local paper thus:
We had precisely this sort of weath
er in this country in 1869. Corn was
not planted until June, and it was a
fair crop, while wheat was magnifi
cent I was doing a little farming
mjsjelf that year and the yield of my
wheat was thirty-five bushels to the
acre. There is nothing discouraging
in the situation: We will have big
crops this yearl"
J. J. Fay, a retired Michigan lum
berman, says within ten years the
pineries in that State will have been

in the forest continues.

Daa't Believe la Progressive Woaae.
Rider Haggard evidently has no sym
pathy for the "progressive" woman,
and, in fact, docs not much believe in
her progression. He inclines to the be
lief that all the efforts in the world
will not bring about woman's emanci
pation, since Providence and nature
have marked out the functions and
sphere of the sex. It may be old
fashioned, as Rider Haggard says, but
the "eternal boundary stones "set by
Providence and nature are not to be
lightly rolled away. "May women,"
he says, " be such as our mothers were !
1 wish them no better."
To Improve Honey.
Honey could be Immensely improved
by the planting of the flowers known
to yield a fine flavored nectar. Every
one knows the difference in the quality
of the comb contents in different parts
of the same country and in different
regions. The Narbonne honey obtains
its fine flavor by being harvested
chiefly from labiate plants, such as
rosemary, etc., and though it appears
that the Maltese honey docs not, as
of ten stated, owe its fine aroma to
orange blossoms, the latter undeniably
perfumes the Greek honey.
A Brave Reporter.
The reporter on the Morning Adver
tiser of New York, Frederick J. Ham-ilton,-who
accompanied Dr. Cyrus Ed
son on his rounds among the typhus
patients and contracted the fever, has
died. He exonerated his employers
from all blame in the matter, stating
that it was his zeal in his profession
that caused him to take the risk. A
few years ago, in order to investigate
the Pasteur treatment, he was inocu
lated with the rabies germ and spent
two months under treatment in the
hospital, almost dying with hydro
phobia. To Whiten the Hands
Melt a pound of white castile soap
over the .fire with a little water. When
melted, perfume slightly with any one
of the extracts, and stir in half a cup
fnl of common oatmeal. Use this
preparation when washing your hands,
and you will be surprised at the im
provement in their appearance.
