Comtnerriul itow. tteno, for Family a valuable and Physician" is reliable doctor Another Terrible Cyclone. By Associated Press WILKKSBAKHK, Aug. time ijoes on the severity of the cyclone be- i comes more demonstrated. Immense buildings containing many people were unroofed, and in many cases almost torn in twain, and debris of every character scattered in every direction. This city in ita most frequented part, around the depot, presents its worstap- poarance, and when it is remembered that passenger and freight trains were lifted from the tracks upou which they Htood and laid on their sides, while other cars were rushed along the track by the force of the swirl, small conception of its terrific velocity may be obtained. The center of activ- ity was noticeable in tb.e vicinity -of Park, where the clouds began their work at a tremendous speed. Their vortex seemed close in that vicinity, but to the north of the cut- lery works at South Wilkesbar-e, A sudden gust of w ind opened up, and in a moment had increased to the roaring of the Vulcan Iron Works. James Norns' foundry and the Key- stone Flour Mills felt the first shock, the wind dashing the heavy materials about like straws. The storm swept tip Main street, the buildings on the west side of that thoroughfare. Then it reached Hampton's resi- dences, stores, green-houses, pottery works, etc., along Main street as far an The weatero edge of the storm extended to the lower edge of Franklyn street and Hana Place. Brick dwellings were unroofed and the upper stories torn av.ay, and soaie were leveled to the ground. South Main and Franklyn streets were com- pletely blocked with fallen trees, roofs, timbers and wire. Veering eastward, the storm swept out over HazeUstreet to South Hani] ton street, extending as far east as the Hazard Wire Rope Works. It followed VVarfington streefrand wrecked several and then ciossed to the depot, 'thence to Stegmaire's brewery and swept along the railroad to the rope u. arks. Here it turned east and ngain up Pearl streeb, out by the Baltimore mine No. 2, and then dashed down again and spent itself in the woods. The scene at the Hazard Wire Rope Works was terrible. The immense building was oadly injnred and in the debris lay the dead and injured, the latter being helpless until assistance came to them. Here one of the worst phases of the cyclone's work could be realized, the ponderous machinery being mixed with the brick, mortar and general debris in a confused mass. The num- ber of seriously injured men at Works exceeds twelve, and there were two killed. Near the Delaware Hudson Rail- way on Scott street were houses occu- pied, by the families of James McGin- ley and James Helegan. All mem- bers of these two families were at home while the fearful" destruction was going powerless to do anything for tbeir Jane McGintey, agwl about 28 years, and babe, whom she held to her breast, nere crushed to death; John McGin- ley, aged 13 years, was crushed to death; Mary Jane McGfnley, a little daughter aged 8, was severely hurt and crushed, with but little hope of her recovery. The family of James Helegan could not be found in the ruins of then home, and fears are en- tertained that they all perished. The Ninth Regiment is on duty in answer to a proclamation of the Mayor. The soldiers are assisting the police in maintaining order and are everywhere eager to assist and do whatever is asked. A careful estimate places the num- ber of buildings demolished and par- tially destroyed at nearly 400. The JOPB will probably reach nearly, if not quite, The number of killed ts eleven; fatally injured, ten; and severely injured, twenty-four. Thejr Mtand rat. By Associated MILWAUKEE August.

The site is both beau- tiful and appropriate, and there, doubt- less, the remains of America's great- est military hero will always remain. But the action of the Senate should have the effect of quickening the effort of New York, in this matter. The pride of the metropolis should _be aroused by the public rebuke admin- istered by a vote of the Senate. An Klccfrlc Light combine. There is an electric light combine in New York City which threatens to make a difference of hundreds of thou- sands of dollars in the price of electric lights. The average rate paid last year wan 29 cents a lamp per night, while the lowest bid this year was 35 and the highest 45 cents: Bids re- cently opened show the combine be- yond a doubt. Each company offered to furnish light from the present Until January at 35 cents per lamp, and from that date till April SO, 1891, at from 45 to 50 cents a lamp. EAM A frntt Trader's Cheek.

If ahould _IA for useful purposes and In lulling ttho .Id tttrike the cheek p State Convention. Special GAZFTTE.) SAN JOBB Aug. Waters called the Democratic State Convention to order at this morning. The report of the Committee on Cre- dentials was read and approve 1, there being no contents.. Ex-State Senator A. Caminetti of Aniador was nominated for Congress by acclamation bv the Second Con- 'gressional District Convention. ,The platform declares that the Dem- ocratic party of the State of California reaffirms the doctrines of the National platform of 1884 as adopted at St. Louis, and that a depleted Treasury, the imposition of unequal and op- pressive taxes, an effort to enaot co- ercive legislation, the arbitiary disre- gard by the Speaker of the House ol Representatives of all Parliamentary rules, and the shameless servility dis- played by the majority in the House in yielding a ready obedience to his tyrannical mandates; the'r refusal to join the Democratic party in its effort to procure the passage of a measure permitting the free coinage of silver; the neglect of th'e present Administra- tion to modify an admitted erroneotic tariff, suggest with more emphasis than words that the reins of govern- ment should be placed in safer hands. Continuing, the platform says: "We denounce and condemn the Republican majority in the National House of Representatives for the pass- age of the infamous Lodge Election bill, by which that majority seeks, while masquerading under the guise of a free ballot and a fair to per- petuate itself in power by insidiously destroying the liberties of American citizens, usurping the legislative func- tions of the State Governments, and bringing the Federal election machin- ery into an interminable conflict and collision with the statutory efforts of the people of the various common- wealths of our union to institute genu ine, practical and permanent political reform. We hold that this species" of Federal interference with the people in the regiHtration of their sovereign will is despotic and centralizing in its tend- encies, dangerous to the libertv, peace and prosperity of the people, revolu- tionary in its nature and principles, aud in direct contravention of the principles of the Government as be queathed to us by the framers of our Constitution. "We denounce the McKinley bill aa opposed to the best interests of the producing and consuming classes of the country. The Chinese restriction act, adopted by Congress, as the result of Democratic effort, is about toescpire, and it is the duty of Congress to enact a law perpetually excluding the Chi- nese from the United States. We favor the free coinage of silver and demand it be made a legal tender for all purposes, public and private." The platform favors the enactment of laws against pools and trusts, the election of United States Senators by a direct vote of tbe people; pledges its nominees to the Legislature to use all lawful means to secure the adoption of the Australian ballot system; pledges its nominees for Congress to endeavor to secure liberal appropriations toward making the great waterways of the State freely navigable at all seasons, and reaffirms the doctrine that the waters of the State belong to the peo- It leaffirms ConrreMfllonal By Associated Press.! WAbHiNGTON, Aug. res- olution tin ing the time of voting on the Tariff bill and designating the other legislative business to be taken up this eecsion, was laid before the Senate. Hoar offered a substitute, making it in order when any bill or resolution shall have been under consideration for a reasonable time for any Senator to demand that debate thereon shall be closed. He also moved to amend Quay's resolution by adding to it a provision to include in the business to be taken up the Federal Election bill, and to have a vote on it taken on the 4th of September. Quay gave notice that at the proper time he would demand a division of the question. Hoar addressed the Senate at length, initiating that the Election, bill sboUl'd' not be postponed- At the conclusion of Hoar's speech Spooner moved to refer Quay's resolu- tion to the Committee on Rules. Frey made an impassioned speech against that motion and in favor of an amendment to the rules providing for the adoption of the previous question. Several other Senators spoke, and at 12 o'clock the Tariff bill came up as unfinished business. A suggestion to lay aside the Tariff bill temporarily was refused, so the Senate procee'ljd with its consideration.
