In the track of the storm and was entirely
swept away , together with the Inmates , con

Peter Rcamcs , a peddler who lived near
Paw Paw , was passing the school house with
n team and wagon. Ills dead body was later
found lodged in n willow fcnco , but his team

The storm hurried on in a southeasterly
direction , taking everything It came in con
tact with. The whole country from near
Enrlvillo to Paw-Paw , In Leo county , is
marked with ruin. At least fifty farm houses
nnd other buildings were wrecked and
eight more persons killed. All the fences ,
orchards and crops were mined nnd the dam
age done is very great. The cyclone con
tinued increasing in violence until it reached
the village of Paw Paw Grove , where the
greatest destruction of life and proi > crty oc
curred. This village was left in. ruins nnd
the loss of life there was very great. It is re
ported that seventeen persons wcro killed and
ninny severely injured. Twenty houses were
torn to piece i and the eastern portion of the
town entirely wiped out. Many of the bodies
of the dead were carried hundreds of yards
and mangled almost beyond recognition.
AMIIOT , Leo county , 111. , June 21. It is be
lieved hero that the reports of loss of life in
this county nro exaggerated. At Subletto a
Mrs. Bltncr was killed by fulling timbers and
eight or ten other people wcro hurt , but none
of them seriously. Ten or twelve frame houses
In the outskirts of town were blown down ,
tiut very little damage was done to the busi

A school house between Earlvllle and Paw
Paw was caught by the cyclone
and completely wrecked. The teacher ,
Miss Magglo MeBride , and six
children wcro killed. Fifteen

EAUI.VII.M : , 111. , June 21. The report that
Paw I'aw was entirely demolished and seven
teen people killed is false , no injury being
done to person or property there. The
storm came from the southwest , striking
liear Subletto , doing considerable dnmnco ,
but passing Just south of I'aw I'aw , where it
rose above tlio groYnd and did no further In-
'jury. The path of the storm was about forty
rods wide and several miles long. The dum-

the usual amount of "gall" possessed by his
species , did n very peculiar piece of work
hero this morning. While the work gang of
the Milwaukee road was eating breakfast at
a boarding house near the railroad track , n
tramp jumped Into the cab of the locomotive
attached to the work tram standing nt the
depot , and opened the throttle wide. The
train pulled out with lightning speed , and al
though the rtilroud men saw it start they
wcro unable to overtake it. Ten minutes
latter n freight train pulled in , the engine
was detached and the crew started in pur
suit of the stolen train. Just this side of
Panama , seven miles west , tlm work train
was found standing on the track , but no trace
was discovered of the thief. Steam was up
in the engine , hut the tramp was oviddntly
afraid to run by the town , and sq deserted his
stolen property. The engineer expresses the
belief that the tramp must be an engineer.

A VERY VALUABLE STRATEGIC POINT ,

Br.iti.ix , Juno 81. During the prolonged
sitting of the bundcsrath Chancellor Caprivi
explained the alms of the government in con
cluding the Anglo-German agreement rela
tive to African territory. Ho dwelt on the
immense Importance of the strategic value of
Heligoland nnd recalled the fact thnt
during the wur of 1S70 It was ueccs-
sury to detach a largo force to guard against
n possible French landing at the mouth Of
the Wehr nnd Elbe rivers and lay submarine
mines to protect the water approaches to
Hamburg and Bremen. Ho produced an
opinion from Von Multko that Heligoland
could be so fortified nnd that it would bo
equivalent to a largo Increase in the German
army in the event of war. The bundcsrath
unanimously approved the compact and con
gratulated the emperor and chancellor , to
whose initiative the cession of the Island to
Germany by England was due.
The report that Lord Salisbury spontane
ously offered to cede the Island is in direct
variance with the fact that Count "Von Huz-
feldt handed to Lord Salisbury two weeks
ago a formal demand from Chancellor von
Caprivi making the cession of the island an
absolute condition of an English protectorate
in Zanzibar. The English government prob
ably will not like to produce the
opinion of military experts on the value of
Heligoland. Hero the strategic importance
of the island is universally recognized. Ad
miral Honks' paper , written in 1882 , Is largely
quoted as proving how greatly the possession
of the Island strengthens Germany. Before
long Admiral Hcuks' idea of a great island
will be realized.
The opinion of the people of the island
docs not count with either government. Both
know that the islanders are opposed to an
nexation to Germany. During n former dis
cussion regarding the cession of the island
by Great Britain an informal plebiscite re
sulted in a deputation waiting upon
the governor and presenting him with
the unanimous declaration that every
man on ttie island would prefer to emigrate to
America rather than to eompulsorily become
German subjects. The dread of military ser
vice scemcd.to be the main objection of the
people. The German customs regula
tions was n minor objection. The
agreement endeavors to modify these
objections by giving the islanders twenty
years exemption from military service , with
the same period of exceptional customs privi
leges. Whether or not these concessions will
reconcile the islanders will not effect the ces
sion of the island , which adds to the security
of u great nation.
The leading Hamburg journals regret the
granting to England of a protectorate
over Zanzibar because it will paralyze the
recently formed line of German steamers to
East Africa and place the whole tr.ide in the
hands of the English. The East African
colonial company , which lately absorbed the
Witu company , already claim compensation
for the cession of the Wituland.
Major Wissmann , who will arrive hero to
morrow , has telegraphed expressions of his
concurrence with the opinions of his old lieu
tenant , Baron Gravenrenth , to the effect that
the surrender of Zanzibar makes the English
masters of East Africa , nnd that the sur
render of Uganda into the hands of the
English gives them the key to Central
The Hamburger Nuchrichtcn declares that
German commerce in East Africa will bo
ruined , but admits that the acquisition of
Heligoland balances any loss elsewhere.
England , the paper says , hns done Germany
a real service to the disadvantage of France ,
which always requires to bo closely watched.
The National Zcltung holds that the Ger
mans will soon establish trading ports In the
main land of Capo Zanzibar , and reminds the
malcontents that most of the regions con
ceded to England never belonged to Ger
many. Public opinion , influenced by articles
dilating upon the strategic nnd naval
value of Heligoland , become moro and moro
pleased with the compact , It is probable
that the opposition of Franco to a British
protectorate in Zanzibar was not overlooked
in the negotiations. The Anglo-French agree
ment of IfciW , guaranteeing the Independence
of Zanzibar , was held as lapsed under the
French recognition in 1SS7 of the German ac
quisitions in East Atrica , combined with the
British treaties with the sultan o'f Zanzibar.
An ominous note was presented today to
the porte by the Russian ambassador , Nell-
doff. It suggests the intention of the czar to
actively interfere in the Balkans. The note
declines the request that Russia wait until
November for the payment of the war indem
nity by Turkey and demands Immediate pay
ment. The note declares that In th'6 event of
a refusal Russia reserves the right of takhig
all necessary measures to compel payment.
Yesterday the Bulgarian envoy presented
to the povto a note from Stunibuloff , demandIng -
Ing the extension of religious Jiherty
to Bulgarians in Turkey and also
recognition of the Bulgarian government.
Stnmbuloff Is acting in concert with Russia
without regard to the personal interests of
Prince Ferdinand , mid it is expected that his
action will develop n proclamation of the Independence -
dependence of Bulgaria under the prince , who
will be ngryenblo to Russia , with.tho absorp
tion of part of Macedonia Into Bulgaria.
Dr. Wimlthorst , the leader of the clerical
party in the relchstag , has offered the ndhe-
blon of his parts to carry the military credits
on condition thnt the government introduce
n measure giving the Cuthollca effective con
trol of their primary schools ; also that it
modify the army bill by granting nn extension
of tile leave of absence. The opponents
of the bill calculate upon having 15'j"votes. .
It is certain that the government will ljuvo

of the Catholic members nnd the members
from the Rhlntsh nnd Westplmllan districts ,
whom Dr. Wlndthorst manipulates.

WASHINGTON , Juno 21. In the house today ,
after the reading and approving of yester
day's journal , Mr Bland moved to reconsider
the vote by which the yeas and nays floro or-
dcred upon Mr. Melvlnloy's motion to table
his ( Blund's ) nppaal from the decision of the
chair ycstcrd'iy , declining to entertain his
motion to take the silver bill from the speak
er's table. Ho announced that ho desired to
withdraw his nppjul , but Mr. MelClnley in
sisted on a Vote , so Alt' . Uluud's motion to re
consider was put and defeated 90 to 120.
The roll was called on Mr. MoIClnloy's mo
tion to table Mr. Bhiud's appeal and it pre
vailed yeas , 140 ; nays , 45. ,
All the free coinage men except Dchavcn ,
who did not vote , voted to table the appeal ,
as well as the following democrats : Bucka-
low , Campbell , Dunphy , Fitch , Geissenhaln-
cr , Lewis , McAdoo , Mutchler and Traeey.
A largo number of democrats refused to vote
Mr. Forman of Illinois , rising to n question
of privilege , said the journal showed that lie
was present and refused to vote when the
administrative customs bill was passed ,
when as a matter of fact ho was in Spring
field , Ills.
The regular order being dcmaded , the
speaker said the question had been discussed
yesterday us to the condition of the bill ( sil
ver bill ) , which had been referred
by the speakur and the record
of which in the journal had
not been concurred in by the house had 'been
said to bo effaced. The rules required that
such bills bo referred and n statement to that
effect should bo put In the journal and record.
The statement was made and the house saw
' fit to not permit It to become part of the
journal , which left it a somewhat difficult
question ns te the status of the bill. Indi
vidually the chair believed , as did the gentle
man from Iowa ( Conger ) , that a refusal to
record the fact did not obliterate the fact
itself. The action of the house might have
its origin in another motive that it would
not give its sanction to record in the
journal a transaction which it desired -
sired to subvert. and while it
might seem to the chair that some dcilnito
action should be taken by the house , yet , as
the gentlemen might have noticed , parliamen
tary law did not seem to bo an exact science.
[ Laughter aud applause on the democratic
sidel. The chair , however , desired to give
the house all proper opportunity for the tran
saction of business which it might desire ,
subjo.t to the rules. The reference was made
in accordance with the custom which had
prevailed over since the establishment of the
rules. The chair believed the senate amend
ments to the silver bill came within the view
of rule 20 , which prescribed that any amend
ment made by the senate to
any hoi so bill must bp .considered
first in committee of the whole if it
would have been so liable had it originated
in the house. Thu senate amendments to this
bill struck out the first section and substi
tuted another section containing no words of
preparation and proposing n different line of
action , to-wlt : "Fashioning of silver bars
and coining of all silve.r presented instead of
the purchase of silver bullion. " This and
other substitutions were plainly now propo
sitions , requiring consideration in committee
of the whole. Under these circumstances the
chair announced to thohouso that the bill had
been referred to the committee ou coinage ,
weights and measures.
Mr. Bland of Missouri appealed from the
decision and proceeded to argue the appro
priation clause in the original house bill , and
the bill as it came from the senate was the
same in terms and purpose and was not sub
ject to reference to the committee of the
whole. Besides ho held that the point was
made too late.
Mr. Springer declared that the silver bill
was the only one which had been subjected
to this kind of-treatment.
Mr. Peters of Kansas said that all the gen
eral appropriation bills took the same course.
Air. Springer denied the statement and
challenged the speaker or any ono else to pro
duce a single similar instance. This was an
attempt to revolutionize the rules them
selves were revolutionary in conception.
The republicans and tlulr speaker were
dodging the silver question.
Mr. Crisp of Georgia said It was evident
that there was a deliberate intention to pre
vent a direct vote upon this question.
This was the only opportunity to get a vote
on free coinage. If the speaker was sus
tained and the bill went to the commltto , if it
over again came from the house it would
como under a rule that would keep it entirely
within the control of the gold men , who
would alone bo recognized to move amend
ments. If the frco coinage men would do
their duty they could got a-voto upon the
proposition before the sun went down.
Air. Herman of Oregon said the silver
question was an Issue at every election held
In his state. Ho had agreed to support the
republican state platform , declaring in favor
of free coinage.
Mr. Fitch of Now York said It was plain
that yesterday's proceeding was a victory for
free coinage. VY&en it came to that point ho
jyould refuse longer to combine with the free
coinage republicans and vote to refer the bill
fr > the proper committee , The gentleman
Irom Georgia ( Crisp ) , was slightly mistaken
In his estimate of party position , for at least
some democrats from Now Yorlc would refuse
to vote for free coinage.
Mr. Perkins of Kansas said tlicro was n
purpose not to secure free coinage , but te
force through a measure that the president
would bo obliged to veto. The democratic
party would wreck-business in the streets of
the country If in so doing they could advance
the interest of the democratic party.
Mr. Henderson of Iowa held up the urgent
dcllclcny appropriation bill as an Instance of
u bill that had taken the same course.
Mr. Springer sought to put n question , but
Mr. Henderson waved him off : with the re
mark : "I will not yield to you : you are
bobbing up all the time. " Continuing , ho
said ho wanted silver legislation. Ho did
not care a snap for the money lenders of Wall
street or the great mine owners of the west.
Ho stood for the laborer and farmer. The
bill would come back from the committee.
Mr. Bland Will this free coinage bill comeback
Mr. Henderson The house bill will como
hack with such recommendations touching
the senate amendments as the committee may
Mr. Conger of Town said there were not
three districts in the United States out
side the silver producing1 states that would
support such a proposition contained In the
amended bill. As for the coinage committee ,
ho would promise again that the bill would
be reported back at the earliest possible
moment. The committee was not unfavor
able to silver.
Council of Nebraska said ho could not see
why this should be regarded as a political
question. Some of the democrats would bo
lound voting against the majority of their
party. Why should not wititcrn republicans
show the same Independence.
The debate having closed , Mr. McKlnley
moved to table Mr. Blund'ti appeal. The
yeas and nays resulted yeas HI , nays 117 , so
the appeal was laid on the table. ,
The following republicans voted with the
democrats against Mr. MeKinloy's motion.
Bartlne , Council , Dchavcu , Hermann , Kelly ,
Morrow , Townsend and Fuuston. The dem
ocrats who voted with the republicans In fa
vor of the motion wore Bucknlew ' , Dunphy ,

Mr. Brewer of Michigan presented the report
port of the appropriation committee on the
senate amendment to the fortifications appro
priation bill , The house non-concurred and n
conference was ordered.
WASIUXIITOX , Juno 81. In the senate to
day Mr. Morrlll presented several petitions
for u duty of W per i > outid on and several
against a duty on tin plate.
The resolution offered yesterday by Mr. Ed
munds for n committee of seven to take Into
consideration the state of the administrative
service of the senate nnd to report what
measures should bo adopted In respect to the
greatest eftlcleney and economy of the service
was taken up nnd agreed to.
The house bill , supplementary to the act of
Maruh 83 , lt S2 , in reference to bigamy , was
taken up. It provides that all funds or prop
erty lately belonging to the Mormon church
shall bo devoted to the use end benefit of the
common schools in that state.
Mr. Butler offered an amendment devoting
the funds to the endowment of Institutions of
learning in Utah , and for that purpose turnIng -
Ing over to the general board Of education of
the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day
Saints , subject to the rules and regulations to
bo approved of by the president of the United
Slates , nnd not to bo used In disseminating ,

Mr. Edmunds opposed the amendment.
A vote was taken on Mr. Butler's amend
ment and the vote was yeas , 0 ; nays , 84.
The nine anlrmatlvo votes were given by
Bates , Berry , Butler , Call , Coke , Harris ,

Thcro was no quorum voting , but Mr. But

Mr. Voorliccs moved to postpone the bill
until the second Tuesday In December next.
By that tlmo , he said , the supreme court
would have reached a termination of the liti
gation now pending.
Mr. Edmunds opposed the motion and said
the bill did not touch or affect the property
at all until after the supreme court should
have finally disposed of everybody's ' rights ,
public and private.
Mr. Voorhees motion was not agreed to
yeas , 20 ; nays , 83.
The bill then passed without division.
There were some formal amendments made
to it which will require a conference.
Mr. Merrill moved to proceed to considera
tion of the senate bill to establish an educa
tional fund and apply the proceeds of public
lands nnd receipts from certain land grant
railroad companies to moro complete the en
dowment nnu support of colleges for the ad
vancement , science and industrial education.
After'some objection it was taken up , but
soon went over without action.
Mr. Edmunds offered an amendment to the
sundry civil bill to pay to the widow of Chief
Justice AVuito $8,7.10 , equal to the balance of
his salary for ono year , and appropriating
$2.r > 00 for a tablet in the interior of the Wash
ington monument , suiting briefly the history
of the structure. Referred.
After some routine business and a short ex
ecutive session the senate adjourned.

A rtcception Tendered to Sciilior Ita-
Julin , the Brazilian Minister.
PAHIS , Juno 81. [ Special Cablegram to
Tin : Buy. ] The reception ot Senhor Itaj'uba ,
the representative of Brazil , by President
Carnet yesterday completes the first official
recognition which the Brazilian republic has
received in Europe. Scuhor Itajuba was n
long time In the Brazilian diplomatic service
under the eniporer. Ho was prompt , how
ever , In tendering his services to the republic.
The minister then in Paris , Baron Penedo ,
on the other hand , refused to recognize
the republic and tendered his resig
nation to the emperor. Senhor
Itajuba was Immediately promoted
and sent to Paris , but was not received by
the French government. The long delay
which followed caused the Brazilian govern
ment some embarrassment and the new min
ister was even falling under suspiciuu as not
being sufilelontly zealous in his efforts to se
A curious explanation of the delay Is now
given by M. Dclonclc , a member of the
French chamber of deputies , according to
whom Franco has only recognized the repub-
He now on condition that the Brazilian
government make u prompt settlement , either
by arbitration or direct treaty , of its old
territorial dispute with Franco respecting the
boundaries of French Guinea. M , Delonclo
claims that the settlement can bo made
which will not doubt the territory of French
Guinea , and there is u possibility of Franco
getting a territory five or six times as great
us is now included In the French colony. In
any case , ho insists France cannot fail to se
cure the left bank of the Amazon between
Maeapa nnd the sea.
, Mucapa will thus become n French port
and Franco will bo the only European power
established ou the Amazon , and will have tjio
privilege of navigating and trading on that
river. The wealth of which the future , M.
Delonclo thinks , will surpass that of the Nile
or the Congo.
Senhor Gabriel do Pizu , the now Brazilian
minister to Germany , has arrived in this city
nnd will proceed in u week or two to Berlin.
The Brazilians arc very hopeful that the
recognition of their republic by Germany
will soon follow. Senhor do Pita was edu
cated in America. He has long been a promi
nent Brazilian republican.

New Yoitic , Juno 81. Holders of sugar
trust certificates were dismayed ' this morn
ing when they read of the unanimous vote by
which the house adopted the conference report
port on the anti-trust bill , nnd long before
the opening of business the sugar post on the
lloor of the exchange was surrounded by a
largo nnd excited crowd of brokers discuss
ing Its effect. They boon realized what the
effect would bo , however , for when the chair
man's gavel fell the entire crown began to
offer certificates. At the close of business a
decline of 1 % per cent was noted for the day.
Many speculators who bought certificates
above SO lust week ara crippled. Represen
tatives of the sugar trust are anxiously
awaiting the decision of the court of appeals
on the legality ef the trust.
Reciprocity IN What AVe Want.
WASIIINOIO.N , Juno 21. Referring to the
published utorics concerning n scene in the
room of the committee on appropriations the
other day , u gentleman who was present said
tonight that while the affair was greatly mis
apprehended the discussion which took place
was not In relation to the general schedules of
the McKlnley hill , but the feature which Mr.
Blulnu condemned was that of giving a free
market in the United States to the products
of the sugar planters of the southern conti
nent and not asking in return free markets
lor the products of 0'ir own farmers where
we can get them merely for the asking. Mr.
Blalno huy.i that corn would uot be selling in
Nebraska fur 17 cents a bushel if the markets
of Lutln-Aincricu were open to our prouucts ,
