counties scorn to buvo boon the scene , nl
though It was storming at the tltno proity
much all ever the stato.
These counties HUfforod so much moro that
other sections bavo boon given llttlo thoucbt
today. The cyclone bogau to form near Jnnk-
ou , ID Jackson county , and after sweeping
nerois Martin Mid Fanboult counties was
scattered near Wolli , close to the boundary
ol Freeborn county. Its course was to the
northeast at first , but it later took n sudden
iwccp to the south and disappeared below
Wells , which Is almost directly east of Jack-
Knnrinous Logs of Life.
The loss of Ufa Is largo , some estimates
being as high as 103. It soeras pobablo that
forty or llfty lives have boon destroyed by
ho fury of the storm , but the exact figures
cannot bo given tonight. Everything In the
path of the storm was swept from the face
of the earth , houses and barns bom < ? splin
lercd nnd trees nnd telegraph poles snapped
off Ilko pipe atoms.
A houvy rain storm broke nt half past , 4
o'clock and before that had passed awny the
clouds began to gather. In all its torrlblo
blackness the terrible looking cuno put In
its appearance , tind as it whirled
across the country It licked up houses , earns
trees , crocs ana people everything that
came in Us path. Mutiy houses that wcro
but partially destroyed covered the mangled
remains of Iho former occupants. Timbers
\vcro strewn along the railroad tracks , BO
that where traffic was not Interfered with oy
the washouts it was blocked by the wrecks
of buildings nnd trees on the tracks.
Nearly all the trains through th soulhorn
portion of the stuto were delayed , and in
man v cases the delay was duu moro to the
wrecks than to the Hoods.
Snicil by n rini.li of Lightning.
Last nleht ono of tuo freight trains which
pulled out , of Mankuto , lifter running n few
miles ftom that city , discovered u lingo ob-
mruction across the truck. It proved to bo a
house that had been blown across the track ,
nail the engine was .almost touching it when
It stopped , u iluiU of lightning l.twlng re
vealed Its presence In time to save another
wreck. The train hands found half a dozen
people 1 } Ing among iho broken Umbers , nil
seriously and some probably fatally hurt.
The injured persons were talton to the near
est housu and cared for. The cyclone had
taken the building from Its foundation , some
Ulbtanco off , and dragging the wreck along
had left It u.on the truck as found.

of all was the wreck of the homos.
Near Shorbourno a teacher and eighteen

tion of the work on the domocratlo wigwam
warrants the formal prediction matlo this
morning by the building comtMlUco that the
cdltlcu will bo completely finished by Satur
day ovonlng. Workmen ore busy all ever
the Interior of the great pine cu-p which ,
from the Interior , looks Ilko nn oblong bowl
of yellow wood about 320 fact long by 200
foot broad , In the central space whcnoo the
eloquence of next week will distill into
space , now stands n pony steam onglno ,
straining at cables and jerking long limbers
to the upper floors. Above all is the sky ,
nnd n right largo sky it is.
But the builder will have the firmament
shut out in the next seventy-two hours.
Shifts ot 100 mon each nro now working day
and night , are lights being provided for the
hourrt of darkness , and the damnu-o douo by
Sunday's ' cyclone Is being repaired so rapIdly -
Idly that the building seems to grow visibly
us ono looks at It. The cntlr clmngo of
plan made necessary by the substitution ol a
wooden for a canvas roof has naturally af
fected the appearance of too interior.
Spalls Mimy Good Kent * .
\Vncro before ono great polo stood in tbo
center of the wlgwa'n holding up iho roof ,
there will now bo homo hundred Inrgo pillars
mudo aich of thick boards nailed togi-thor
with broken joints. These dot in two circles
thu ground between the spectators and the
delegates' part or the building , and t > Ix ot
thorn will stand In the central parquet. The
effect of this will bo thnt many of the most
desirable seats , as they wcro before Mou-
day'n storm , will now bo safely ensconced
boblnd wooden screens that are not even as
transparent as a theater hat.
With the exception of tboso great posts
the Interior nrraugcmonts are practically
uncnanged. The convention will fuco to
ward the wost. The delegates will ocupy
u platform In the middle of the hull ( n the
ehapaof a fat ellipse. About this rises tier
after tier of seats already ohalrod , nnd on a
second blory sot further back and much
moro acutely tilled climb Iho seals of Iho

When the now roof Is on , instead of the
former simple device of lilting up the canvas
to lei In fresh air Ihcro ulll bo n long ellipti
cal break In the roof , which will drop dawn
over what rutgul bo called the dress circle

N. M. Allen , the builder , who , through no
fault of his ownhas had so'mucu of his work
to do over again , sold. "Everybody mav
feel absolutely certain that tho.wigwam
will bo ready to turn over to the committee
on Saturuav ovonlug. Today and tonight I
am working shifts of 100 men , which nro all

croasoa to : ) JU as soon as wo can got to a
point whuro tbo roof can bo dlrojlly at
tached , uf

Tbo financing of the enterprise has caused
a good deal of attention. It is now believed
that the now roof and other repairs will add
something moro than $0,000 to tno cost of the
cdlfico ns originally contemplated , nnd ar
rangements to find this money nro being
made today. The whole cost of the struc
ture will bo about 30,000 , and the full ex
pense of the wiitwnra. decorations , music
and the entertainment of visitors will not

An exact stulomont of the seating capacity
was nmdo yesterday by > Ir. F. B. Winston ,
chairman of the local committee. There
will bo 17,500 chairs for tno guests who come
In by tlckot , 000 seats in the boxes. 1,000
chairs for the delegates on tbo door , and 550
seals for Iho press. This makes the total
10,050. No arrangements bavo been * muilo
for alternates , who will have to find their
places with Iho common bord of spectators
until Ihoy nro called upon to alternate.
Mr. Winston , who will bo remembered as
tbo late minister to Persia under the lasl dem
ocratic administration , who Is at ttio bend of
the local arrangements committee , has found
tbo question of ticket issuing ouo that moves
him to cominual bitterness and vexation or
soul. Ho docs not believe tbat Chicago is
gelling nearly Iho number to which she Is
entitled , and at the public meo'lug at the
Palmer house during yesleruoy afternoon ho
said so very Hatty. Somebody asked what
chance Chicago was going to have to sco too
convention. Mr. Winston said :
"Thoro Is a fine street railway running up
and down in front of the wigwam. Ar
rangements have bocn made whereby during
the convention the faro will bo continued nt
5 cents n rido. Such Clucagoans as cheese
may taka this rlao nnd look nt the wigwam
as ttungo by. At any rate this is all ttio In
formation of which lam at present iu pos
