building wns crowded with children many
ot whom went nrnrlv frantic with cticf over
the appalling darkness nud stillness which
ircccdcd tlio tempest. The wind swept in Id-
way across the broad prnltle from the west ,
and seemed to concentrate Its force In n de
scent upon the tower , which yielded with a
crash , and , tearing down tlio heavy
> ell , plunged through the Intcrvcn-
ng floors to the basement. The
main building Is n mass of ruins
within , shattered walls which still stand.
The wing was comparatively uninjured , nnd
the scholars In it were not hurt. In the
imln building , however , the one fact was
that the awful falling floors piccipllntcd ter
rified children Into the basement , wheio
masses of bricks and boaids crushed them to
HO ground and burled them from view ,
Persons near , hearing tiic crush , made their
vny as best they could ngainst the beating
storm to the scene.

them to leave her nnd help the boy bcsido her ,

State legislation , affecting legislator , hud
piohlbltcd members fiom accoptlng inllroad

iho people to think they were moio honest
than others. Yet ho noticed that members
traveled up nnd down tlio inilroads just the

kind of weakness in legislation that caused

Is hero earnestly supporting the interests of
tlio dairymen of his state and Nebraska nnd
is helping on the light against the fraudulent
manufacture and sale of oleomargarine. Ho
regards this as ono of tlio overshadowing
questions of the day and says the matter has
leached that stage whcio congress must de
cide whether or not a few gicedy and giasp-
Ing men shall be pci milled by deception nnd
fraud to smother out nnd destroy one of our
greatest Industries one In which f > ,000,000
citizens with 15,000,000 , cows mo engaged on
small farms ami large farms In nil
parU of the couutiy and whether
the many millions of consumcis
of butter nnd cheese shall be deprived of
puio nnd healthy dairy product and com
pelled to either do without or use the bogus
aiticlc. He believes the question of health
alone will settle this contioversy in favor of
the pure aitialc. In icteiencc to tlio claim
ot the butteilno men , that the demand for
butter cannot be supplied by fauueis and
hence butteilno becomes a necessity , Mr.
JJcerlng said to the BKE correspondent to
night that the northwest alone could supply
the world with good butter If loft mi tram
meled and given a fair opportunity for do-
\elopment , and that In the west their meth
ods of tanning had changed. The practice
of raising wheat almost exclusively had been
greatly abandoned and dairying had taken
its place. Ho said that in his own
county six years ago not ono pound of
creamery butter had boon undo , but last year
that county shipped to tlio cast 1,2.50.000
pounds : and so it would FOOII be in rxK ) other
counties If they can ha\e encouragement and
fair play. Mr. Decline expiessed the belief
that the wclI-oiganUcd elloits of bogus mat
ter to mislead and diivo this congiess and
the country would fail , and thatii comme-
hcnsivo and stilngent law will be enacted
which will furnish that icliof from this

Business has resumed Its usual aspect nt
nil the freight depots to-day , nnd Is moving
nlong ns smoothly as bcfoio the strike began.
New men who wcro brought hero to fill fho
places of the stilkcisnio still ictalncd by turf
majoilty of the roads. Chicago , Burlington
& ( Julncy load was among the Hist to reopen
their ficlght houses with a full set of ne\V

western road , nnd n majority of the others ,
also icfiised to discharge new hands nnd re
instated only ns ninny of tlio old hands ns
were necessary to give them nlull comple
ment of men.
In regard to the end of the strike of switch
tcndeiH on the Western Indiana road , the
oflicer.s of the company say that they made
no concessions whatever , but that the men
returned lo woik on the old basis of pay
"crssiin MOUKMIAN poriAi.ibTP. "
A ride thiough the southwest lumber dis
trict nt noon to-dny found most of the great
raids still deserted. In ono or two places
twenty-five or thirty men weie nt work as ou-
yestcrdny. In nearly ovcry yaid live or ten.
stand-bys , who nio hired by tlio year , are
keeping things In shape and gum-ding piles
from suspicious looking strangers. Proprie
tors aio enungcd Inigcly In sitting at the
doors of their ollices waiting.
"These cussed Bohemian socialists , " said
ono iitnn who would not allow his name to

Notwithstanding the strong protection , the
lumber men and planing mill bosses did uot
attcmot to statt up their woiks. Both cm-

tacks by the anarchists. They wcro not
at i aid ot open attacks on men
while nt work in daylight , but of secret at

their day's labor. Tills is thoimht to be one of
the htiongcst motives for leinnliiing Idle for
a while. While lumber men will notconcedo
anything from ten hotiis woik it Is nShCitcd
that the majority of their hands would return
to work at one were it not for tills fear of
intimidation. i *
Tliestiiko in the North bide lumber yaids
is pincticnlly settled. Fiom H.OOO to 5,000 men
aio employed thcio nnd they liavo resumed
\vork nt tfio old scale ten hours work nnd

Most of the wounded oflicers now lying at

Affairs in Chicago.
CHICAGO , May 11. There was no attempt
