Minneapolis, Sept 23.
EPORTS of the destruction
wrought by Friday night's cy
clone indicate that the loss of
life will be in the neighborhood
cf seventy-five while tbe injured will
lumber several times as many. Some
of those hurt are expeoted to die and it
is not unlikely that folly 100 persons
will be unmoored in tbe list of Ibe cy
clone's fury. Tbe property loss is very
heavy and it is almost impossible at
this time to obtain anything more than
rough estimates of tbe damage
As indicated in lust nigbt's dis
patches, the storm originated near Em
nietsburg, la., and passed east and
north to northern Iowa and sontbern
Minnesota, finally passing over into
Wisconsin. No reports.of evrioas dam
age have been received from this sec
tion and the fury of the ele
ments seems to have been spnnt
with the destruction of Spring Val
ley. Here fonr persons are dead, some
severely hurt, while the property
loss is estimated at $35. 000, tbe resi
dence portion of the town lying directly
lu the path of the cyclcnt. At Le Roy,
lying sonthwest, fonr are dead and
several fatally injured. Tbe detrac
tion of property amounts to $75,000.
This M a heavy blow to the village for
its ebief business hooses lie in ruins.
Five miles north of Ojage, Iowa,
six persons were silled and large num
ber hurt. Tbe destruction of farm
property is quite heavy, but no esti
mates have been made. East at
Lowther, a town of about 100 sonls, on
tbe Chioago and Great Western, three
persons were fatally hurt, and the
whole country for miles aronnd laid in
rnins. Tbe loss in this vicinity will
probably be not far from $100,000.
Fifteen mile north of Mason Clty.iowh,
fonr persona were killed outrigh t and as
many more probably fatally hurt, while
11 the buildings struck are total
wrecks, the loss being- in the neighbor
hood of $50,000. West of Mason City,
near Brut, two persons were killed out
right, while north of this town some
half dozen lost their lives. North of
Algona seems to have been the soene of
the greatest harvest of death, more
persons being killed in Kossuth county
than in any other one county through
which tbe tornado passed. Nineteen
funerals were held at Algona today.
North of Emmetsbnrg, whicn seems
to have been the point where tbe cy
clone first assumed dangerous propor
tions, two lives were crushed out.
As the storm traveled through the
country and avoided villages aud
towns, the property loss is largely con
fined to farm bnilings and these beta
badly shattered render even an approx
imation of the loss impessible, but
conservativeestimates place the dam
age at not less that $1,000,000.
Bicycle Blders Are Htld Up br Weary
Newark, N. J., Sept. 123. Thirty
tramps held up and attempted to rob a
party of bicyclists who were returning
from Eahway on Frelinghuysen avenue
tonight. They blocked the roadway
and rongbly demanded money, sup
plementing their demand with dire
threats in case of refusal.
The wheelmen had dismounted and
one of their number, drawing a re
volver loaded only with blank cart
ridges, gave a loud command to "Fire''
and bin zed away point-blank at the
would-be robbers. The latter, think
ing they bad encountered Newark's
force of bicycle policemen, beat
a hasty and Inglorious retreat, Then
the attacked party became the aggres
sors and captured five of tbe Coxey
detachment and held them until tbe
arrival of the police who were at
tracted by the shooting. When locked
np they were recorded as Peter Lynch,
George Moore, John Sicklim, David
Welsh and Conrad Bender, all without
a home except Lynch, who said he
livps in New York.
Tbe attempted robbery occurred in
front of dense woods, where it was
found later tbe highwaymen had an
elaborately famished headquarters in
an nnnsed barn. This was razed and a
quantity of stolen goods found there
was taken in charge by the police. The
gangbai terrorized that seotion for
two months.

Scranton Diooeaan union met in

der diiouasiou matters bearing on the
annual parade of tbe Catholic Total
Abstinence societies on Father

Tha nanui nf the Lackawanna

counties has signified its intention to
be present.

Factory Inspector Watchorn Investi
gates the System in
Harrisbitrq, Pa., Sept. 23 An In
vestigation of the sweating system as
it exists in Philadelphia has just been
made under tbe direction of Factory
Inspector Watehorn, who baa been try
to discover bow many of these
sweat Bhopa are nineoable to tbe
factory inspection act. The
special investigation just concluded
hows a icondition of things almost
incredible in a city like Philadelphia.
The investigation was made by Miss
Mary O'Reilly, a deputy inspector, in
whose district tbe exorable system is
in full operation. Factory Inspector
Watcborn accompanied Miss O'Reilly
occasionally, and what he saw con
vinces him that the report does not
exaggerate the situation.
He finds that 2,014 persons are em
ployed in sweat shops at 643 places.
Of this nnmber but 52 places oome
under the jurisdiction of bis depart
ment, whiob he nrgea as an increase of
authority for tbe department In order
that these places may be reached and the
evil in some measure eradicated. Miss
O'Relllj'j report iscompreLensive ss to
detail and describes many of tbe places
viaited and scene which she witnessed.
The system flourishes in the tenement
district- Few Americans are employed
in tbe work, the Russian' Jews pre
dominating, The report speaks of
crowded rooms, men, women and chil
dren huddled together eking out a
miserable existence with their needles;
men ashamed to say bow little they
were paid for the work they do; the
wsgea are beggarly.
Miss O'Reilly describes the kind of
goods manufactured by the half starved
men and women and suggests the dan
ger of a spread of disease from the sale
of such clothing, She makes a strong
plea for a division of home and -work
Erie Opara House Earned.
Erie, Pa., Sept. 23. The Park Opera
Bouse was entirely destroyed by fire to
night The bona was built in 1S73 and
was valued at t5,0(X)j insurance, $30,000.
The fire was of iacendairy origin.
Senator Manderson is very hopeful, in
view of his advices from Nebraska, of suc
ceeding himself in tbe senate.
Don M. Dickinson, who is in Washing
ton, believes in the possibility of Hill be
ing the nominee for governor of New
'Squire McMullen.'of Philadelphia, thinks
Harrity was Innocent of McAleer's defeat,
but admits that "everything is now up
side down."
Tbe rnmor comes from the Seventh
Hatsachnsetts district that the Domocrats
mny nominate ex. Governor Russell to suc
ceed Dr. Everett.
Ex-Director of the Mint Leech, now a

After a conference with Senator Hill,
Lieutenant Governor Bbeehan, of New
York, said: "Mr. Thatcher is a very strong
man. Of all tbe Demooratio candidates
thus far mentioned I conaider him the
most available."
O. A. O'Brien, a Pittsbnrir Democratic
leader, discussing McAleer's overthrow,
says; "Mr. Harrity baa achieved another
glorious victory, as he is reported to have
defeated another successful Democratic
congressman, for which class he appears to
have a deadly hatred,"
The Republican congressional commit
tee has decided tbe contest for nomination
from the Seventh South Carolina district
between Messrs. Ellory M. Brayton and
Johnson, in favor of the former. Mr.
Brayton is a white Republican, formerly
collector of internal revenue and chairman
of the state Republican committee.
The fact that Mr. Singerly has issued a
manifesto to the Democracy of tbe state
taking himself out of tbe light has evi
dently not served to fully relieve hi feel
ings, He is still fighting mad and will
continue to pepper the Democratic organi
zation in a manner that they will not rel
ish. It is reported that Mr. Singerly is so
much vexed tbat he will not attend the big
reception planned for him. In thts event
it will be tendered to the other candidates
on tbe state ticket.
John J ilea, of Pittsburg, formerly Idea
titled with the Harrity machine at Harris
burg, bnt wbo has since broken away,
says: "The defeat of McAleer was noth
ing else than an outrago. it waa a breach
of faith on tbe part of Harrity, as it baa
long been the agreement that McAleer
would receive ttx nomination. Singerly
only became a candidate for governor for
tbe sake of harmonizing the factions, and
hia work in tbat direction ha all been un
done. It will have a demoralizing influ
ence all over tbe state."
Admiring Friends of tbe Iron Prince Visit

The Ex Chancellors Speech to the
Berlin, Sept. 23.
THE demonstration at Varzin today
waa marred by tbe heavy rain
which fell throughout the day.
Tbe roads were bardlv nasi able.
tut this did not deter tbe people from
tne vieinity from gathering about tbe
railway station at Hammeramuhle to
await the arrival of the special trains.
Seeing no signet cessation of the storm,
Prince Bismarck telegraphed from
Varzin to tqe committee: "Don't
trouble yourselves to come to Varzin.
It will be bad marching in tbe mod and
rain. I will come and meet yon at
Councillor Von Gerlich put tbe ques
tion to tbe committeo whether tbey
should stay at Haminerstnuhle or
march to Varzin. Aftor a few short
speeches by members of the committee
it was declared that Varzin was a
sacred resort for Germans and that
they must go there. At this point a
great number of ladies, forming a
separate battalion, pare of them march
ing and part occupying harvest oars,
formed a column and proceeded to
ward Varzin. The rest of the proces
sion followed.
As the bead of the procession
marched into the ojstle yard at Varzin
tbe bands were playing and the pro
cessionists were singing "Tbe Watch
on tbe Vistula" and -'The Watoh on
tbe Rhine." As far as possible the yard
had been covered with boards and
twpaulins, bat tbey did not suffice-to
keep off tbe rain.
Abou jfaoon tbe procession entered
the yard with ladies in front, each
carrying a bonquet. Prince Bismarck
ordered forms arranged for the ladies
te sit en srfaiia -be we speaking, and
walked behind and around the ladies to
see tbat they were comfortably seated.
The battalions formed in good order
each under a standard showing the die
trict from whieh they were deputed.
The banners were inscribed with a
variety of mottoes, such as "Faithful"
from ElblDg and "True'1 from Gran
de nz, etc.
When Prince Bismarck mad bis ap
pearance preparatory to speaking there
was a prolonged ohorns. - Then the
ohoral ''Deutsebland Ueber Alios" was
sung and Baron ' Fourneok presented
tbe ex-ohancellor with an address adding-
"Your are our ideal statesman.
Onr star is still old Blsmarch. " There
was a chorus of hurrahs at this and
the band playedi "Ich Bin Eln Prenss."
Prince Bismarck, before beginniug
bis speeoh in reply to the address.drank
a glass of branky and soda. Then east
ing hia eyes over the assemblage, be
aaid: "I am greatly pleased with your
visit, all the more so because the hot
weather Aid not deter you from com
ing. None of yon can longer hope, fear
or expect anything from me, yet bare
yon are. What leads us together is
common love for tbe Fatberland.
Cheers. It is a distinction tbat no
state colleague of mine or no Prussian
minister ever experienced. I claim
nothing except that I havo done my
dnty in the service of a master with
whom I am bonnd in common faith to
ward tbe country."
After the prinoe's speech, Councillor
Von Gerlich handed Princess Bis
marck an illuminated addrees, and the
ladies presented her with bouquets.
The procession then passed in review
before Prince Bismrck, the bands
playing and tbe choruses repeating
"Ion Bin Ein Prenss." Prince Bis
marck's chief ranger supplied the visi
tors with warm drinks, sandwiches
and milk. The weather improved
during tbe afternoon and the marob
baok to Hnmmeremuhle was pleasan
ter than the march to Varzin.

Pont-y-Pridd, Sontb Walts, Sept. 13.
U are now in Font-y-l'ridd ami
having a glorious time. Ow
ing to the lateness of tbe Ber
lin in getting into SontbamD-
ton and to the temporary loss of the
trunks ot two ot onr party, we began
our concerts a week later than we had
promised, thereby disarranging sev
eral dates; but we are now in working
order again. Our time is all filled up
with concerts, one Doing givin every
night. We ure staying at Pont y
Prldd as our headquarters, and go
from there every evening to towns
eight, ten or twelve miles , distant
where we give a concert and return to
our hotel tbe same night, after having
been royally entertained by tbe towns
men of the place in which the co'noert
We are being very cordially received,
to put it mildly. At the first concert,
given at Treberbert, JMr. Evans was
greetid with cheer after oheer as he
stepped upon the stage, and a very flat
tering reoeption whs given to the rest
of us, even before we opened our lips.
Bnt when tbe concert began the open
ing number was greeted with wild ap
plause, nnd nearly every number called
forth unthusiaatlo recalls We are one
and all appreciated by tbe musical
Welsh people, and I should be the very
last to complain of my reeeption, as it
is perfectly beautiful. They are very
kind to me, indeed, and I am surprised
and delighted beyond measure by the
warmth of my reception.
The playing of onr violinist, Miss
Allen, is everywhere commented on
with tbe highest praise. Her audiences
rise to tbe "highest pitch of enthusi
asm rthTiewgjSnperrsy,' over net
playing and her fine instrument, and
aa I said before, we' have nothing to
complain of in the appreciation in
which we are held. Tuesday nighl,
Sept. 11, we performed at Peutre, and
last night. Sept. 12, at Ferndale, and
at each place onr reception was only a
repetition of the others.
We can see that the Weleh people
are very much surprised at the ex
cellence of the American voices. Tbey
knew, of course, that we conld do
something in the way of making music,
bnt not much, yon know. They ex
pected ns to be sort of uncouth and in
artistic 'about it, I fancy, as they take
no pains whatever to conceal their
unmixed surprise and pleasure iu
our work. We have met several of the
leading Welshmen in the Rbondda val
ley and have been beautifully enter
tained by their wive and themselves.
Tuesday night we were given a small
reception at Tom Stevens' bouae, where
we had a very pleasant time. Mr.
Stevens will be remembered as tbe
1 wider of the Ebondda Valley Male choir
whioh carried eff one of tbe principal
prizes at tbe World's fair last summer,
and afterward made auuh a sueeesef ul
concert tour in the States. He is geui
allty itself toward us, and every timo I
eee him I have to think of that quota
tion we come across so often in tbo
hack part of tbe magazines among tbe
advertisements: "We are advertised by
our loving friends,'' for he is always
doing something tbonghtful and lovely
for ut.
Today there is a horse show at Car
diff and some of us are going down. as
it is not many miles from Pont-y-Pridd.
I expect to enjoy myself very much, as
there is nothing I love better than a
fine horse. There is much of interest
in Pont-y-Pridd as well. On Sunday I
attended the English church here and
listened to the finest choral service I
ever bad the pleasure of bearing. It
was exquisite and in passing other
churches all day Suuday, the congrega
tional music of which I caught snatches
was very Sue iu every instance. No
wonder these people are fine chorus
singers, as a couple of hundred of them
will often sing a whole anthem with
out tbe support ot any instrument and
not deviate a single thread of a tone
from the key.
This part of Wales is often called
"the much-ohurched" country, on ac
count of tbe myriads of churches
which one moots in going around at
all. There are churches everywhere,
but when one stops to think about it,
it is really not surprising, be
came this valley is so densely popu
lated, that I daro say tbe numbor f
churches is merely proportionate to
the nnusber of people in tbe valley. It
is said tbat there are at least 800,000
people In tbe Rhoudda valley itself.
Tbe last throe evenings we gave con
certs we had a man with a trap drive
us from Pont-y-Pridd to our oonoert
town, and the scenery through which
we drove waa simply magnificent.
For wild, startling bits of scen
ery this . country exeela any
locality through which I ever
passed. The roads are, of conrse,
fanltless, as you know good roads are
what England and Wales are famous
for, and we roll easily along from one
town to another, passing the numerous
mines or pits, as the mouths of the
mines are called, and going from one
little valley Into tbe next through
scenery tbat is simply idyllic. Volumes
conld be written about the difference
between their way ot mining ooal and
ours, and tbe scenery, the old Druid
temples whioh we saw, the famous
Rocking Stouc, nnd the wonderfnl
bridge (Pont-y-Pridd), fter which thi
town waa named all tueie last three.
here at and near Pont y-Pridd but I
know you don't cure to heat about it
and if you do you can read it all In
guide books much better than I can
tell you.
There ore so many amusing differ
ences between being Engliah and being
American. If yon are English you
will call a telegram a "wire," as "Here
is a wire for you, Miss." as the maid
8id to me this morning. They call a
smoking room, a smoke-room, and in
stead or saying "Post no bills" they
eay "Stick no bills." A street car is a
"tram," and by the way, let me soy
that tbe most antiquated street horse
cars are goiug ovr here still. In faot
there is but one electric road in big
Loudon itself, tbo whole city being
traversed by means of cabs, horse cars,
buflseo, and of course, the underground
