Cyclone At Valparaiso.
VALPAHAISO. Neb. , July 0. | Special to
the llnE.j Yesterday afternoon about U45n ;
cyclone formed about two miles northeast of
town and , traveling In a southeasterly di
rection , lirst struck the residence of E. L.
Lister in the east part of town , literally tearIng -
Ing It into kindling wood. It next struck
the house of Mrs. Hays , demolishing it. Botti
families had taken refuge In a cave and es
caped. The next and only other building in
the track of the cyclone was a small stable ,
which was lifted from Its foundation , leav
ing a span of mules uninjured. It now lost
Its force and disappeared. Had It taken a
course through the center of town great de
struction would have resulted , as Us power
seemed very great. No thunder or light
ning accompanied ! t , but as the ground was
very dry great clouds of dust were carried up
by It , hiding tlio center from vlo\v. It lirst
appeared In the form of a white funnel , com
ing down from a very dark cloud , ami was
met by another of dust and tlyinc limbers ,
etc. Fortunately r.o rain has hindered the
gathering together of the scattered house
hold goods of the families thus left homo-
less. Your correspondent had a close view
of the storm and is pcifoctiy satisfied with
Its neaincss to him , and never wants to sco
nnother. Great excitement prevailed In town
while the cyclone was In sight , which was
not ojer twenty minutes , as trom its slow
and wavering motion Its course ahead was
very uncertain. Its track was about two

WASHING ro.v , July 0. [ Special Telegram
to thu BKK.JIt Is understood that Uio ad
ministration Is playing for the admission of
Utah Into the union. The report of the com
mittee In the Mormon constitutional conven
tion In favor of making bigamy and polyg
amy a misdemeanor , and in reality of the en
tire separation of church and state has awak
ened tbo democrats to moro decisive action.
Solicitor Gcneial Jcnks Is in Utaha pendinc
the action of tlio convention on the report
and It Is said that the object ot his visit Is to
manage the necessary negotiations for the ad
mission of tlio territory. For several years the
democrats In the house have opposed the ad
mission of Dakota on political grounds alone.
It Is possible tliat this game cannot be played
much longer , and democrats think that they
can sea their way to admit Utah as a set oft
to Dakota. In spite of the vigorous manner
In which the Mormons are apparently mak
ing haste to correct their errors of many
years standing It will bo hard to divest
their motives of suspicion. The country
would rather sco them undergo a certain
period of probation before being taken Into
tbo sisterhood of states. Mr. Jonks Is a vary
astute lawyer and a good Judge of men , but
It would bo well If this bo tbo object of his
visit to subject every one to the closest possi
ble scrutiny. _
Forced Out ny Drought ,
WASIIINOTON , July C. Commissioner
Sparks , of the general land olllce. has re
ceived a letter from the public land entry-
man In eastern Colorado stating that the
drought has already greatly damaged crops
In that section and tliat if It continues much
longer the crops will bo a complete failure ;
that Insects have destroyed growing vegeta
bles , and tliat there is absolutely no feed for
stock. The ontryman states that his neigh
bors aru forced to leave their holdings to ob
tain thu necessities of lite , and neks if this
absence will operate to defeat their claim
when linal proof is olfered. The commis
sioner , In answer , sajs that whatever relief
may bo possible within the discretion of the
ollice will bo extended to enable settlers suf
fering from such afllictlons to preserve
their claims. Settlers who are obliged to
leave their claims on account of drought
should be prepared to account for their ab
sence from ' .his cause when thev make their
linal proof , but in such cases the proof
should not be olfered until tlio law has been
fully compiled witli after their return to tlio
land. An enforced absence on account of
climatic reasons will not imperil their claim
If tlio fact is established when proof Is made ,
and If proof Is not attempted to be made in
advance of the time when residence , Im
provement and cultivation requited by law
can be satisfactorily shown.

had spent over 82,000,000 in experiments.
Then he sat down and told about his latest
discovery , by which messages can be trans
mitted from ship to ship by means of steam
whistles operated by keys very much like the
telegraph system. All his experiments so
far have been confined to the waters of
the Caloosahatclile , where he has succeeded
In conveying intelligible messages a distance
of ono milo. The principle upon which Edi
son will endeavor to perfect his experiment
Is the remarkable faculty offered by water
for transmitting sound. Divers in the ocean

hip at a distance ot at least seven tcitlcs.

ransmitting wire running through the tube.
iVlien the captain of one vessel wants to sig-

ho sound waves strike the bounder of the

CiiAiti.r.STo.v , S. C. , July 0. [ Special Tel
egram to the Bin.l : For several jears Mor
mon missionaries have been trying to get a
foothold in Upper Cntollna and Cicorgla. A
number of converts havu been made In York
and Spartctiburg counties , South Carolina ,
and several families have gone to Utah. The
converts ha\u been Ignorant country people.
Public sontimuiit Is strongly opposed to the
spread of tlio missionaries' pernicious doc
trines. They havu not done much in this
state for the last year , but scum to have trans
ferred their field of labor across the Savan
nah river Into Itlchmond county , Georgia.
The people ot Wrlghtsboroujh neighborhood
are stirred up just now by the appearance In
that locality ot thu Mormon missionaries , the
Hev. David Brownson and Elders S. O. Spen
cer and Joseph Murphy , who have been
pleaching at Goodman's chapel about A
month. They aru good talkers and serin to
havu abundance ot money , and In a
remarkably short time they have worked
themselves Into the good graces of some of
the most Ignorant of tlio people. Having
gotten supporters they began working hard ,
promising all who would profess Mormon-
lulu to send them to Utah free of cost and
piovido for them there. They stated that
they wcio sent out as missionaries by thu
people of Utali to convert puoplu to their
religion and to send all who confessed such
to Utah. They are working principally to
send out young mon and young women.
1'liu missionaries had worked the Ignorant
class into such excitement that the people of
education decided that something should bo
done to rid the section of .such people. Some
nays they called a meeting , and It was de-
cidea to draw up a request asking the mis
sionaries to leave the country. The paper
was handed them by a committee / -
tee of live , but they pointedly
ana determinedly refused to 1:0. Thev had
all this time been holding nightly services In
( ioodwin's chapel and distributing among
thu people numbers of pamphlets on the
Mormon icliirloii , and even went so far as to
preach "that all who did not confess the
Moimon tellKion and 1:0 to Utah hufoio lbl)3
would bo destroyed by tire ; " also telling them
"that they were living In adultery , " that no
mairiagi ) was in conformity with thn laws
ot ( iod other than the Mormon service , and
iiy a Mormon , and tliat "no woman could ob
tain absolute perfection In the future state
if site died a virgin. " This , of
course , put the Ignorant people Into
a tien/.y ot excitement. When all
tills became known to tlio people
who liad requested tlio missionaries to leave
the country , they decided that soincthlnir
should be done at once , and Immediately
oiganizcd a body of regnlatois , consisting of.
two < lo/en men , who went to one of their
meetings In ( loodwin's chapel and ordered i
tiicm to leave and never enter the chapel *
again. They lett the chapel lint retiised to
leave the county , and havu since been preach
ing in private houses , and the excitement
continues. On Sunday last not less than
twenty-eight persons attended their
services nt n privatu house. A number ot
"regulators" were dealt with quiet severely
by the courts some time a o for whipping a
party of negroes whom they were confident
iiad tieen c.tirylng on an organized system of
robbery. They , however , have determined
not to allow thu Mormons to continue , longer ,
and will In all probability run the missiona
ries from the county 111 a few days. This
will be a ditllctilt task , as thu Mormons have
qulln n strong backing among a certain class ,
and when the attempt Is made there is llablw
to bo borne very lively lighting.
American Party Plans.
SA.V FIIA.NTISCO , July fl. Delegates from
