A STORMY NIGHT.
Much Damage Done to Trees, Wires
and 'Phones Sunday.
Sunday night ami caily Monday
morning will probably po down in local
chronology as "the night of the big
wind," for from the coming down of
darkness until the going away of tho
snme a mighty avalanche of moist
wind was hiulcd through the streets of
this city, at times approaching the
velocity ot n hurricane. Sleet, snow,
hall and tain accompanied otd Ilorens
on his hasty Journey und the noise of
tho hnll ut times on window panes
awoke the soundest sleepers.
Considerable damage was caused
thiouglioiit the town. Teleguiph, tele
phone and electric, wires generally
wore the focus for the fury of the
storm, with (in occasional crash as
some stately ttee was crushed beneath
the weight of the tempest. When ull

The telephone lines xxete In bad
shape, thu two companies having about
110 'phones out of commission In the
rally moi'iilng. They xveie icpalied as
quickly as the linemen could get to
them. The Postal Tclegiapli had but
one Hue left, the direct one to New
Yoik. The tlectile lights xxcro all out
after 3 a. m , but today the tompany
expects to have them all In shape. On
South Main stmt the tin roof on the
James Harrctt store waft paitly torn
off. The chimney on thu house of 'Clur
cnte Hose, on Spiing stiett. was de
molished utterly, and other chimneys
paitlully. Theic were three treeb blown
down on Tciiaci stieet, emu on North

theie was u great flash of lire. The
Inmates of the house weie axx.ikened
by the ci.tsh nf the falling of the tree
and seeing the great blaze outside
thought instantly that the house was

of ihlldien added to' the confusion and
the fourteen Inmates of the house pre

MR. CARNEGIE'S OFrER.
Eveiy One in Towns Says It Would
Re n Pity to Turn It Down.
The fair offer of Andiew Carnegie
to endow the city of C.ubontlnle with
a public library building on the solo
condition that the city will guaiantee.
thiough Its councils, to make a yeaily
appiopiiation of 10 per cent, for its
maintenance. Is universally racplvcd
with appinbatlon. This city should
certainly be able to pay that much
towatd keeping the original Invest
ment In pi line condition. Ten per cent.
Is not an cxoibltaut mini to maintain
any business, public, or prlvute. Ths
money is undoubtedly Intended to be
used for adding to the collection of
books, subscribing for periodicals and
newspaper for thu reading room, re
blndlng nnd the many little e.Npenses
that must be met to keep a llbraty In
good onler and up to dat.'
Many little towns with less than
half the population of Curbondale have
llbi aides and reading rooms costing
full) as much per milium ns this city's
would If we accept Mr. Carnegie's of
fer. It a vote by ballot would be tuken
on the proposition as laid down In
the oifir there Is no question but that
It would be overwhelmingly carried.
In nearly every case whete Mr. Car
negie has made a similar ofter to a
community It has been accepted glad
ly and In every case tho same, condi
tions as bind this gift (10 per rent,
of tho amount per annum) has willing
ly been voted. Two weeks ago the
city of Port .Itrvis had a like tender
made, Mid It took less than u week for
their city fath"rs to pass an ordinance
guaranteeing the conditions.
Another site, besides those mentioned
In csterday'fi Tilbune for the llbraty
building, Is Memorlul Paik. There Is
ample room on the upper aide of this
tt tangle, back of thu monument, for a
building l.uge enough tor this purpose.
Nothing In the paik would have to be
disturbed, except possibly the iltllcu
lous. Iron fence sin rounding It, xvhleh
would not cause many tears,
Clenig,. S. Kimball hns llguied nut
that tho actual tost to the city If tho
count lis detltlo to accept this offer will
bo "less than one-half dollar n jear to
euch family, or ten cents for ujc.li
being In our little mountain city." Ho
"Never tl Id Cmbondale have a mure
momentous question to settle. For the
years to tonio we arc elthei to bless
the wisdom that guided us In uifptlug
