The Great Storm.
The storm that visited Butler, Monday
afternoon, was as wide-spread as any we
have ever read of. Reports iroui Titusville
and Oil City to the north of us, and from
Wheeling to the south of us show that the
width of the belt visited by the storm was a
wide one, and reports from Huntingdon to
the east of us and from as far West as Tope
ka, Kansas to the west show that the belt
visited was an unusually long one.
The storm struck Butler at about 2 p.m.,
and in a few miuutcs did considerable dam
age. Part of the tin rotfiug of the Court
House was ripped off and thrown to the
street, the tin-roof of the jail was bulged,
almost all the stationary awnings in the
town were torn to tatters and in some cases
the iron rods holding them were bent, the
cornices of the new Schenck and Reiber
buildings were thrown over, but jne derrick
on the hill south of town was left standing,
the hose drying steeple on the jail lot was
upset, Madison Starr's new house on N. Mc-
Kean street was moved ab jut a foot aud the
contractor, Adam Haffner, put it in place
next day with four jacks, shade and fruit
trees were broken and blown over, fences
were blown down and Charley Kerr, who
was working on the ball grourds fence says
he was blown acrcis the street —the first time
he ever flew and perhaps the last—; Phillips
Bros. had 21 rigs blown down at Keibold aud
Glade Run, ail the oil operators in the coun
ty had some rigs destroyed, bail fell in the
Saxon field and the hail stones hitting the
team of a man named Martin saved his life,
for the team scared and ran out of a shed
just before a derrick tumbled upon it; John
Robb's barn in Oakland twp. was upset and
his 13 year old boy, who was in the barn at
the time had his arm broken, a traiu was
blown off the track near Foxburg.
Reports from Beaver, New Castle, Green
ville, Oil City, Kittanning and other towns
show that the damage done there was similar
to that done here.
Out West, a water-spout in Dawes county,
Dacota, submerged a railroad track for five
miles and washed away bridges, at Daven
port, la., hailstones weighing an ounce fell,
windows were broken and crops damaged;
near Indianapolis, Ind. a farmer named
Benson aud his team were struc.k by light
ning and killed. Near Tupeka, Kan. large
hail stones fell and drifted toa depth of three
feet, and cattle were cut by the hail stones
until the blood ran; at Stockton, Kas. the
river bottom was overflowed and two fami
lies carried off, three children are known to
have been drowned.

The people of Butler will have a
genuine treat on Sunday evening, at
the Presbyterian church, in the lec

Y. It will be remembered that she
delivered one of hor popular lectures
to an overflowing house here a year
ago, and so delighted her audience
that the W. C. T. U. under whose
auspices she comes, has succeeded in
securing her for another lecture. We
may safely say that those who attend
will pronounce tbe lecture one of tbe
best. No admission fee will be char
ged, but, as usual, a collection will be
taken which, it is hoped, will be gen

The Indiana, Pa , Messenger says:
The idea that "DO license" makes a
dull town is all fudge. Indiana has
not had a licensed house for several
years and there never was a time
when more business was transacted.
When we had seven licensed houses
at least SIOO per week were spent at
the bars for beer and whisky That
money is now spent for the necessa
ries of lifejandjnany families now have
plenty to eat and good clothes to wear
who, under license, were half fed and
half cloched. And the curious part of
it is that our hotel men appear to
thrive as well without license as they
did with it. They have more satis
faction iu conducting their business
and are not harrassed by the fear of
prosecution and are not it constant
dread of a drunken row that will break
up a hundred dollars worth of furni
t»re and generally demoralize their
houses. One of our prominent land
lords told us the other day that he
would rather close his house than con
duct it in connection with a bar. And
after an experience of several years,
men who thought they could not pos
sibly get along without their daily
beer and whisky, now find their ap
petite for the fiery liquid gone and
they, too, are satisfied to live in a "no
license" town. All things considered
a town might be struck with some
thing worse than prohibition.

The twentieth annTVersarv of Pec
oration Day has come and gone. The
custom originated with the late and
lamented Gen. John A. Logan, and
steadily prew iu popular favor, until
it became a legal holiday. Wednes
day was a beautiful day—not too hot,
not too cold, with neither dust, mud,
nor rain—and the fine weather com
bined with an unusually complete
programme brought people to Butler
from all parts of the countv.
The first event of the day was the
presentation of the banner given by
the Reed brothers of Pittsburg to the
G. A. R. Post here which is named
after their brother, A. G. Reed, who
was mortally wounded at Fredericks
burg, and who died a few days after.
Uol. Thompson made the presentation
speech, and it was as patriotic, poeti
cal and pathetic an address as anj one
could wish to listen to. Captain Alex
Russell received the banner and in
behalf of the Post made a very gooi
This took place in front of the
Court House, and tht n the procession
consisting of the two brass bands, the
G. A R. Post, the Militia Company,
the Soldiers' orphans, the Odd Fel
lows Lodge, and the Spriogdale Hose
Co., led by Major Reed and Judge
Story on horse back, formed and
marched to the North Cemetery.
Here the soldiers' graves were decor
ated, and then the soldiers assembled
and listened to the usual services.
Capt. Fieeger was the orator of the
day, and he made a splendid
on the duties of the day, and mem
ories awakened by its recurrence, and
he paid Gen John A. Logan a beau
tiful and just tribute.
The procession again formed and
wended its way down the hill, and as
nearly everybody was thirsty, the
three tubs-full of lemonade that the
ladies of the W C.T.U. had supplied
were soon disposed of.
Decoration day is steadily increas
ing in popular favor, and there are
good reasons why it should, and why
we should continue to revere the
memory of those who risked, and who
gave up their lives that the Union
should be preserved.
Every jear of our continued pros
perity as a Nation, renews our appre
ciation of the services rendered by the
armies of 1861-5, and brings more
forcibly to our minds the terrible con
sequences that would have resulted
from a failure of those armies to
conquer the Southern hosts.
Peak Pleads Guilty.
MT. HOLLY, N". J., May 20—There i
wa3 a great serration in the trial of!
Barclay W. Peak, for the murder of
Kate Anderson, this morniug. At
the opening of court, Peak entered a
plea of guilty to the indictment to the
utter surprise of everybody connect
ed with the ca9e except possibly his
own lawyers. The action of the
court yesterday, in excluding the dy
ing declaration of the murdered girl,
which was the testimony on which
the former conviction was obtained
by the S„ate. almost assured acquittal
of the accused or a disagreement of
the jury. Why Peak should have
pleaded guilty at the last moment
under these circumstances is one of
the most remarkable features of this

that he was entirely innocent of the
charge, and has borne himself in
prison aud in the court room with the
After the decision of Judge Garri
son, yesterday, excluding the dying
declaration of Katie Anderson, the
testimony left was circumstantial, but
pointed Btrongly to Peak's guilt.
Upon Peak pleading guilty, Judge
Garrison instructed the jury to find a
verdict of murder in the second de
gree and the court would be responsi

brief absence, returned with a verdict
of murder in the second degree, in ac
