came a very hard rair , accompanied by n co
pious supply of hail , which continued to pour
down about half , in hour GO bard that the

the wind left in its wake evidencoj of mon

The piiutipitl and greatest damage waa thn

b ° rr , bricks and boards were ecnttsred in nl
directions over n space of two hundred feet
The tceno of terror lasted but n few moment

the roof of the main building had not only
gone , but the whole of the fifth story nnd n
portion of the fourth , whllo the heavy
torrents of rain had drenched everything.
The wlmrs which are not so high as the
main building had suffered some , but inamlj
by tha tearing nway of connecting timbers , as
the main building w s carried olT. The long
corildor leading back from tbo main build
lug was swept nway , nnd a part of the root o
the now chapel was Injured , while the fron
of the now chnpelrai damaged by the teurln ;
awry of ttiu corridor leading to the
main building. It could not bo determine !
last night how extensive this dnmago to tb
front was , but it was not thought to bo vary
ereat ,
Superintendent Hammond last nigh
roughly estimated tha damage to the main
building at S5.0UO , but it eeems that it mua
far exceed this amount.
In the front of the main building waa a.
very Urge window nbovo the entrance nnc
ono of tin first waves of the cyclone was to

It waa moat fortunate that tha calamity die

sleep on the Grst floor , in the very part of the

In time. The grounds nro strewn with tbo

LONDON. Juno 12. It is learned from an
authoritutlva source that the Marquis of Sals

storied nt midnight last night for Balmoral
Now that It baa become apparent , by the de

to adopt home rule measures for Ireland ,

Gladstone announced in the house of corn
mons this af torncon that ho had resigned office
and that the Queen had accepted bia reaigna
tion nnd had informed him that aho had sum
moned Salisbury , leader of thn opposition in
the house of lords , to Balmoral for the pur
pope of entrusting him with n formation o :
a new ministry.
Gladstone , continuing , said that under the
peculiar circumstances surrounding the out
going government , ho would a little later pro
pose that thn bouse of commons adjourn un
til next Monday. The question had arisen ,
he proceeded , whether It would be best for the
public confidence and Interest to go on with
pending legislation concerning tha redistribu
tion of seats bill. The present government
would only do so with the consent of the
house. He did not boliave that any differ
ence of principle In roi.ird to this important
measure could now possibly arise between the
parties , and he ri minded the house that the
government nnd opposition were both under
a compact regarding the redistribution bill.
It would however be gratifying to himself and
colleagues in retiring from the cabinet if be
fore they ceased their public duties they
could regard the bill as sealed and delivered
Northcote , on behalf of the conservatives
responded that bis party desired to proceec
with the redistribution bill as rapidly as pos
sible. There wai no reason why amend
ments to the bill by tbo house of lords shouk
not at ones receive assent of the house o :
commons , but he thought it would ba desira
ble to have them printed before formally
acting on them. Gladstone acquieseed in this
view nnd it was decided to make the amend
ments n subject of discussion on next Monday
and adjournment was then taken to that
At 5 o'clock this afternoon Gladstone re
ceived a communication from the queen , in
which her majesty acknowledges the receipt
ot the resignation of tha prime minister and
cabinet , nnd nleo states that pending consid
erntlon of tha resignation of the Gladstone
ministry aha had summoned to Balmoral tbo

would abandon nil ordinary business ,

It is reported to-day that the Marquis of

state commerce committee to-day nn import
ant statement wna mndo by Gen , John Kina-
ker , president of the state railroad commis
sioners. Ho said it was apparent that con
greas thould take some nction on the subject
of equal rates in freight transportation.
In some casea notably on the Wabaah road
in this state rates were lower between points ,
one of which was in the state and one in an
adjoining etato , thnn between points in this
state of shorter distance. In the former case ,
that this was a discrimination was admitted :
that it w s an unjust discrimination was
hardly to bo questioned. The shipper was
not on equal terms with the carrier.
Senator Cullom naked what moans congress
should take to remedy the evil ? Gen. Klna-
ker said the government should furnish tome
means to ascertain the facts by preaentlng
some moans of investigation , some moans or
agency by which facts could be gathered.
The officers of roads should be made to fur
nish information ns to the methods by which
they do their business. llo thought a com
mission would be the beat agency congress
could furnish for that purpose , but if thic
commission undertook to fix maximum ratea ,
the dillicnlty of the problem would then
Senator Harris naked if any powers should
be given to such a committee in regard to fix
ing rates. Kinaker said that they should bo
clothed with powers of n board of arbitra
tors , nnd after having ascertained the facts
should ou them make recommendations to
congress. Ho then explained to the commit
tee the law of Illinois under which the rail
road nud warehouse commissioners acted.
Senator Harris aaked wbatho thought ought
to bo the unit of transportation , ono car or
five. General Kinsker was inclined to think
that one car should be the unit of transpor
tation. He did not aee why the small shipper
should be discriminated against.
Senator Cullom aaked it the witness thought
that it would be wise to embody a provision
in any law congresi might pies providing that
there ehould be no unit quantity but that the
same amount might ba cuargpd per pound as
par car load. Iho witness thought that they
had better start with aomo unit of trans
Senator Plntt askoi what wna his exper
ience of railroad companies in regard to fur
nishing information'Iho witness stated that
lie found railroads very prompt in furnishing
all the information desiied. Specific com
plaints in this state were overcharges and dis
crimination. He thought a federal commis
sion would have the power to fix rates after
consultation with the roads ; that their rates
should ba published to tha world , and should
not be changed without notice , say twenty
days. The question of fixing rates was one
full of perplexities , on account of the immense
size of the country and the diver
sified conditions of the different parts
of the country. The commison : ! should not be
so large ns to be cumbersome , and yet too
small to meet the exlgercncies of tbo caso.
Ar n general rule rebates and drawbacks
should ba prohibited , but the law should ba
! lexibl9 enough not to discriminate against the
customers of ono road in case of a cut in rates
by other roads , But any road should bo pro
nibitcd from allowing rebates or drawbacks ,
to discriminate between Its own customers.
He thought it wculd bo cafe to pajs a law of a
joneral character prohibiting pooling
rebates discrimination , and requiring the pub
lication of rates , but that elasticity would
lave to be a prominent feature of such a law

WASHINGTON' , Juno 12. The reductions in
the pay roll of the agricultural dopnrtmen
for the month of May were a little over S3-
000 as compared with the previous month ! ;
average. Additional reductions for June
amounting to about $500 h.-uo bean made
nnd others nro thought to bo inevitable In
eider to piovent deficiency , The working
force of the statistical bureau has nlrcady
been greatly reduced , but cloaa computation
dlscluson the fact tint the Available funds
kaml nro sufficient to carry the work through
n month npon the present scale , nnd it is np
prehended that the discharge or suspension
of nearly nil the remaining foio
will take place ot once. On the other
side , a considerable fund appropriated for the
bureau of animal industry , and available foi
no ether bureau , will bo returned to the treasury
ury while the etymological burenu and ono or
two others of the department have lusbandei
their resources and will coma out even at th
end of the year.

Comml.eioner sparks of the Innd oflice , this
nfttrnoon submitted to Secretary Latnnr a re
port upon the famous Mnxwell laud grant in
Now Mexico , In which nearly 2,000,000 acres
of n public land grant were claimed nnd pat
ented in 1870. The official proceedings lead
ing up to the patent are recited in detail by
the commissioner , who , then a ays IB brief :
"Pending these proceedings a large number ol
iotters , complaints , petitions , protests , and
charges were transmitted to this ollico nnd
the denrtmont from citizens of New Mexico ,
alleging fraud in the location and boundaries
of this claim , Its ex torsion far beyond any
original claim or posaeision by the grantees ,
the invasion of settlement and mining righto ,
and of the rights of native Inhabitants and
fndUn occupants. Nothing moro than a
mere formal notice of these various
: omplainta and allegations appears to have
jeen taken or done by this office.
No investigation was bad , but the claim
'or this enormous region of country appears tq
lave been carried through the office with
readiness but without regard to the interests
of the government or the rights of the citi
zens of the territory in actual occupancy of
, he land. Evidences of fraud wera manifest
n the bold fact of the presentation of a claimer
or nearly 2,000,000 acres based upon a grant
of leas than 1,000,000 acres.
"The grants of. the Mexican authorities
were governed by the laws of native coloniz
ation. The grants were limited iu quantity
to eleven square leagues , or about 40OJO
acres , to each person. The outbounda-
riea of the localities mentioned
n the npplcatlons for grants are usu-
illy of a most general character ,
in tbo present case thoeo boundaries might
lave been found or alleged to be found at
uost divorce points. The alleged making of
boundaries under the purported judicial pos
session was of an unstable character , easily
removed aud liable to onrly destruction from
natural and other causes. Nothing was oaeier
, han to find such alleged monuments wherever
ihey were desired , but in the BO called adjudi
cation of this case tha boundaries claimed
and tbo monuments assorted bo the interest
ed parties were accepted as the actual bound
aries and monuments ot the grant , which \vas
thus swollen from a little over four townships
at the most to more than sovonty-five town
ships of the public land ,
' The proceedings of this office In carying
, his extravagant claim through to patent ap-
lears to mo to have been of an extraordinary
: haracttr. The decision o the secretary of
ho interior In ISC'J that the claim under the
sonfirmatory act of congress was limited to 22
eagues but became final under the rules gov
erning this department In its administration
> f the laws , The refusal of Secretary Delano
; o review it rendered that decision us to
bat case res adjudicata so far as any exertion
vaa concerned If the secretary of thu Inter -
or could not bavo reopened the case , certainly
Clio commissioner could not under such rules ,
The commissioner , however , did reopen it
as assumed result of correspondence between
himself nnd the secretary bcretoforo cited ,
An examination of this correspondence shows
that it furnishes no proper or sufficient basis
for the commissioner's action in reopening the
decided case. The commissioner' , ) letter
asked for instructions as to future cases only ,
not to cases previously decided , The secreta
ry roplius to this specific request , nud In
structs the commissioner in uhat , shall
be done in similar case * , but does
not say that anything shall
bo done In the caaei already
settled. Ho is not instructed to reopen any
case that had been decided , The commis
sioner naked for no instructions In respect to
the Maxwell grant und received none. This
grant was not before the comuuoner on a re
view of the decision of the secretary of 18C'J.
Ho had no duty to perform in regard to it ,
but tie proceeded upon his own motion ap
parently , to order a new survey. Ho directed
it to be in strict accordance with judicial pos
session , not according to the grant which
must have been determined by the law ;
not according to tha confirmation which
made no mention of the alleged mounds by
which 2OCO equare miles ot territory waa
claimed to have been marked outtas the
boundaries of tbo colonization grunt limited
under tha Mexican laws to 150 square miles ,
but precisely according to these aggregated
boundaries ; and in accepting the alleged
boundaries of judicial possession as deter
mined of boundaries under the grant and con
Urination no notice appears tp have been
taken of the facts disclosed by the record and
adverted in tha report of Commissioner
Anderson to the secretary in 1600 that the
sketch map , purporting to define such bound
aries , and In subitautlal accotdanco with
which the approved survey was executed , did
not accompany the surveyor gcneral'u report ,
upon which the confirmation was made and
wai therefore no part of tuch
confirmation but was produced with but
slight or no evidence of its authority eleven
years after the report wa made , nine years
fter the confirmation cf the grant and twcn-
ly-slx years subsequent tu the date ef thn doc-
ament of possession , of which it was claimed
o ba a pirt. The claim to poaiesslon of the
xtont so described was contradicted by
ram , claimants themselves befcra the depart-
nest assembly In 1814 when they stated that
ha grant did not exceed fifteen or eighteen
ogaues and exhibited to tha assembly the
udiclal certificates confirming such state
ments , The surveyor general , Mr , II. M.
lUklniou , lied anticipated tha commissioner "
jy making n t jntract for the survey by tbo
urge claimed boundaries -with the same cur-
eyor who had made the private survey far
.he grant of the claimant In 1870 , which uc.
tuthorl/ad contract waa not approved by the
ammiesfoner , The coznmitelohei'a Inetruc-
lena to the surveyor general that a " dl < .
Interestey deputy" should be selected
make the survey "who has n
connection or business trnnsnctlo
referable to the Interests of the owners of the
grants" appear hive beeu Ign jraJ
u ; the surveyor general and hia neplect o
such Instructions alio docs not appear to hav
besn disapproved , for the contract for th
survey was given to n brother of the alleged
owner of the grant nnd the nllrgoi ownc
himself was the bondsman , and this contract
obnoxious as it eeomj to ma , to public morn !
and official obligations , was approved nnd tin
purvey made nndor it approved and patented
No dtcision wn > rendered by the cominii
sioners upon the boundaries or otherwise in
the ese before the issue of the patent , bu
the patent was summarily issued without a
formal decision nnd without nn opportunity
being afforded a jvereo parties or protestantj
to appeal to the ac < retary of the interior to
invoke his supervisory judgement. "

mends that suitable action bo taken looking

COLUMDIA , S. C. , Juno 12. News has
icon received here of a bloody riot which oc

gated the idea that they did not deserve the
iresenco of the town negroes at their meet
ng , "puUIn" on alra , " and In turn the town
negroes bad boaated they would go down to
Zion and teach the rural darkeys a lesson m
tiquotto. Besides knives nnd razors , nnd
heap pistols , which go to make up the ne
groes' defensive outfit , each party were
veil supplied with whisky. Scarcely
md the first town contingent arrived
when hostilities began . The conflict was dee-
terato and bloody , and raged for over nn hour ,
it the end of which time the countiy "coons"
raid in possession of the field and the town
arkies in full retreat. The casualties as near
.a . can bo learned were on ? man killed , two
atally wounded , and nt least twenty moro or
ess seriously Injured. A general stampede
allowed the first clash. The meeting closed
without the formality of doxology , and the
rtghtoned negroes of both texea nnd nil ages

CHICAUO , 111. , June 12. There was a
firmer feeling and higher market for wheat
tc day owing to eevcral causes. A larr i
amount of short wheat waa put out yoitor-
day with the expectation of much lower
prices to-day , Tha market opened only
lower and immediately sold up to ic. Another
fact that Influenced prices was n report that ,
the millers association , of Minneapolis , ha < !
estimated the next crop nt ! ! 10,000,000 bushels
egalnst 900,000,000 , us put forth by. the Wash
ington bureau. This led many to think that
possibly the latter authority had made a
mistake , and that all the bul
reports heretofore given were at leaat
as well founded na the estimate of tlio govern
ment officials. It seems certain that there
must ba a mistake somawhoro about the re
ported condition of the growinc wheat. As
.ho caee now stands it \Irtually the .Wash-
ingtoii bureau vs all other sources of informa-
Lion. Private and all Plato authorities have
been lying , or the Waslungto bureau ia misin
formed , Both cannot bo light. July oprnid
ntSSic , lold up to b'.tc , back ngain to 88go
August following nt nbout 2c premium.
Around SDc for July aud .lie for August , quite
t battle took place between the two forces ,
The bulls came out ahead. Liverpool repott
ed ouly a moderrte demand while cargoes wera
] Ulot nnd neglected , but the quotations
were unchanged. No ono , however , expecU
anything encouraging from foreign markets
while their present clut of receipts continues ,
The weather in Kuclnnd was warmer. Now
York opened Jc lower for July aud go for
August , while St. Louts wns greatly demoral-
teU nt the start , opening IJc off for July nnd
IJc lower for August. But that market for
a long time has been the highest in the couu-
; ry , nnd the decline was greatly needed to
iring it on a level with the others. Whether
tbo change in administration in England
noaut further International complications was
nn open question , but n slight decline in con
sols rather fnvored the chances of moro diffi
culty. So far as can be rxpcfrtnlned the big
mils are still holding onto their wheat nnd
irmly bollevo in better prices for it later iu
, ha season ,
The situation in corn continues dull and !
trong , and will do so until the farmers shell
out more liberally. Trading is light , compar
atively , because np ono cares to sell much
inder existing circumstances. Neither ia
here any great profit In buying. Everybody
s waiting for more corn to come in. When
t gets hero or looma up In sight , trading will
commence again , Liverpool says that corn
was firmly held , And the same is true every
where. Tha receipts hero were fair , but not
icavy , while the demand is steadily good.
ftily and August opened ; } c lower ; but nd-
vancr d about ,3c with wheat , the range run
ning from ICc to JClc.
Oats wore quiet for the speculative , but tba
irmness in wboat and corn circles created !
trengtb , and the nenr futures climbed J@i
ent , while the long futures remained eta-
ionary , July ranged at 33.\33J \ cents nnd
loted ut 333gi cents.
The demand was strong and prices n shade
ligher on best fat steers , either corn or stall
eel. Among the fresh receipts were about
! ,000 Texans , largely of an inferior quality ,
hat aold onslderobly lower than heretofore.
jfv grade native steers , especially canning
tock were dull and neglected , and with the
ncreased aunnlv of Texans will continue to
ell'ower until the eiaon is over. Beat na
