HuailreiidliiK Scenes In the Ktilns. Score, of Dead and Dying Taken Out by TtinneMoo, Illliiuli and IiifllitDu Towns Mavch The Courier- Jour- nal says: The mighty stroke of the tornado fell with a suddenness that bcarcely gave time for quickened heart beats before these hearts were milled in death Twice before the wrenching asunder of life and homes and castlra of trade, the impulses of the gale fought to accomplish the work resei ved tor the whirling tiger of the air, whose avant couriers they were. Twice, for five furinus minutes each, they strove and passed on, screeching their baffled rage. Then came a lull, but only for a little space, and then the tornado thundered over the doomed territory, with terrible lightnings constantly ablaze From Eighteenth and Maple streets, diag- onally across the city cmahing dwellings and business blocks like egg shells, toppling down church steeples and wrenching ware- houses to fragments, the dread visitant passed Jo the river front, leaving to mark the boun- daries of ruins a broad swath of wreckage anJ dead and mangled humanity impaled anj weighted down, or burning in the ignit- ed debris. This belt of destruction extended from the n est side of Sixth street as far as Ninth and Main, and an equal width across to the point where the city was first touched. Foe loss of life and property is at present incalculable. It will require long days of painful search and computation to reach a proper estimate, but it is certain that nosuch havoc hob ever been recorded before for an American city from such a cause. To add to the sudden horror of the scene, fire came loiseize upon the shapeless ruin and consume the helpless woiimled and disfigured clcail. Louisville is not left alone to mourn Ibihdrradlul visitation. The city of Jeffcr- sunvillt' WHS also invaded and many of her humcH destroyed, but it is thankfully re- ni.rtnl ivith nn case of death in a single household. Kuini'i-a n-ere current that the beautiful ynviV'-n'nirb of Parkland is also a sufferer, Init I I'lhcr this is true, or to what extent it nmy tine, a lack of communication by iro nr rail, anrl the awful magnitude of this city's, calamity, makes it impossible to ascer- tain at present The destruction of the water works stand tower, anil consequent cutting off of the ivliter supply is another matter of damage th t must cause inconvenience and daiurcr to the entire cuv, while the complete luvakipir ilownof nearly all communication with the outside world renden the situation pretty hard Among those drawn out of the wreck who were badly Hounded or dying from suffoca- tion, and n hose names are known, are: Mr. and Mrs Puff, James Bidd, Mrs. Sarah Kelly, Mrs. James Rock, little Eva Wintersilver and her two little sisters, John Shell of Twelfth mid Market streets, John Good of Twenty-seventh and Hank, Henry Ziiigler of Fifteenth awl M'u-kct. William Jackson and Henry Feltheldeii of Fourteenth and Market Mr. Peifler nf Twelfth and Main, Minnie Henry, Mr. Walter Grubb, Mary Harris, Mis. MuGloughlin, Miss Annie Neil, Miss Mary Harrison anil I'eter Fullett. Most ot the officers of the lodge were at the meeting, and as far as is known were all saved. Their names are- Allen Peterson, financial secretary; William Owens, protec- tor; Charley Hnber, secretary; Mrs. Mary Rock, vice protector; Mrs. Lizzie A.Walton, treasurer, Mrs. Wall, guide Those who were lukeii out dead wore: Kudo ph Hipp, four Tinmon ami three men, not yet identi- lle Ihe women and eleven men, all un- known. BURNED TO DEATH. Heartrending Scenes at the Bnlnt of Falls City Hall. LOUISVILLE, March 13 o'clock the opening up of a portion of the debris of the Falls City hall caused a draught to penetrate the ruins, whereupon the smoldering fire broke out luth tremendous fierceness. It spread rapidly and forced the workers to de- Krt tie pile. As soon as the fire gained head- way the groans of the imprisoned people be- came shrieks, and so great was the horror of the moment that the watchers were frantic and screamed and ran about like wild, the terrible suffering which they were unable to alleviate driving them to despair. Several lines of hose were soon throwing water on the flames, but it was more than an hour be- fore the work could be proceeded with, and then it was carried on with orach more diffi- culty than before on account of the heat. SIARCHIXU FOR MISSING FRIENDS. Up to 12 o'clock only about thirty-five dead bodies and twenty-five wounded and dying were taken from the wreck. The corpses were laid in the various houses across the street and in Doughterty's Keenan's undertaking establishment on the block be- low. At the latter place people paced to and fro hunting for friends and relatives. One man said he was looking for Lonis Lipp and the very first sheet lifted revealed the corpse of the person wanted. The man covered his face, groaned, and would have fallen had be not been sustained. MR. SIMM'S BEREAVEMENT. At about o'clock the room where the children were dancing was reached. Mr. Louis Simm, Jr., of 1124 Market street had for hours been moving about in ah agony of grief in front of that portion of the wreck where this room had been, for his wife and four little children were there. When the room was reached Mrs. Simm was the flrst one found and she was fatally hurt. Within fifteen minutes of each other three of the Simms children were recovered. They were unconscious and there is only a faint possibility that they will live. While the father was imploring the workers to get bis other child, fire broke out and work was suspended. The last man taken out alive be- fore the flames started was John Bepden of West Broadway, and just previous to that a woman, who was unable to give her name, was recovered. It was not possible to tell the extent of the Injuries of either. Mrs. Whitman, wife of Policeman Whitman jumped from the third story of the hall Hhe was terribly injured and will hardly live There are 2QOor more people yet in the debris and the probabilities are that few, if any more, will bo recovered alive Of those taken out <mlv a small number were identified. Everything is chaos. There is no system and under the circumstances none could be expected. PROPERTY LOSSES. The loss of property on Market street, be tw.ien Tenth and Eleventh, was greater on the whole than that between Eleventh am Twelfth, where Kails City hall fell, but in comparison to thp life lost at the latter place It sinks into insignificance. O. F. Burker's large three-story building was blown away. The store and residence ol Isaac Laughter, 118 Market street, was totally demolished. Pour children wh were i eepiug upstairs were protected from the falling wall by the head of their bed. Mrs. Slaughter, who was sleeping in the front room, was lifted from her bed and blown out of the window into the street. One arm was broken and some internal injuries are feared. The four-story brick building of M J. Doyle was left a complete wreck. All the other buildings on the square on both sides of the street were unrooied and most of the upper stories utterly gone. Even after the force of the wind had been broken the rem- nants a street car from the track and blew It fifteen feet. Between Tenth and Eleventh street no one was killed, but a few wounded The stores and buildings between Eleventh and Twelfth streets, opposite the Falls t ity hall, are comparatively unhurt. On the side the damage was greater, but all the force of the cyclone seemed cen- tred on the Falls City hall. One of the harrowing incidents of the dis- aster was tho killing of the Rev. Stephen E. Barnwell, rector of St. John Episcopal church, and his young son Dudley. Mrs. Barnwell was so badly hurt that she may die. 8t John's Episcopal church, adjoining the double house, was shattered throughout and nothing but a mass of bricks and splintered beams are left to tell the tale. The rectory was next to this, and here the beloved rector met his aw f ul death, side by side with his child, Dudley. He was with his family read- ing when the death crash ended his useful life, and from his position when found, must have been killed instantly. His head was horribly crushed, his chest caved in and his whole body bruised and mangled almost be- yond recognition. His beautiful boy, who was evidently sitting at his father's knee, was killed by a terrible fracture of the skull, and was also torn and mangled. The laundry girls of the Louisville hotel who wens killed, roomed on Main street next to the hotel. As the rtorm came without warnms those confined had no time to escape. The walls fell with a orash and the screams ol tha gjrls could be plainly heard above the roar of the storm and falling debris Mary Crowe and Mary Parrell escaped and the rest wore bulled beneath the ruins. TRIED TO SHOOT HIMSELF. Officer John Tully of the Central patrol wagon and Joe Baldwin beard the piteous appeals nf a woman's voice beneath the rums. Both set to work, and with their hanils threw away the bricks and timbers that kept the bodies pinned down. In a short time the body of a man was discovered, and be afterward proved to be Hon. T. Henry Mason of Hawesville The foot an 1 hand of another were also uncovered, nml by this time Maj. Hughes arrived from the Brown fire and put the hook and ladder men and the firemen of No. 2 Engine eompam at work digging for the men. A man's voice was heard m a corner, and a light showed the scarred face of Virgil Wright He was pinned in with a mass of bricks and mortar. In his hand he held a pistol, with which he was trying to end his sufferings. His arm badly bruised, however, that he was unable to pull the trigger, and he was rescued quite badly wounded, but able to walk. WATER WORKS DEMOLISHED. The water works are ruined. The big stand pipe, through which all the water is forced into the reservoir, was demolished by the cyclone. The city water supply is cut off, and it is not known how long it will take to repair the damage. Consequently a water famine is sure to follow. All the windows of the pumping station were blown out. The stand pipe was 100 feet high, and mat built of brick, iron and wood, and was four feet in diameter on the inside. The tobacco industry is awfully crippled. The Kentucky, Enterprise, Falls City, 3reen River, Louisville, Central, Crescent, Planter and Ninth street warehouses on Main street are utterly demolished. The Phoenix, Pirk-tt, Oievens, Headlpy Co., and Sawyer, Wallace Co, ware rooms are considerably wrecked. The Globe and Farmers are uninjured. Pat Rauly, a ware- house clerk, was hurled seventy-five feet, and was found fatally injured. Four men are supposed to be buried in the Main street debris. SAVING THK STEAMBOATS. The life savers under veteran Capt. Devan did gallant service rescuing a score of river men and snaU-hlng valuable steamers from the foaming stream. The steamboats Hiber- nia, Fall City, James (iunthrie, Grace Mor- ris and other boats were toi n troni their moorings and were cameil helplessly down stream. Through the Herculuan efforts of the life savers and the crew of the City of Madison, however, all were safely brought into port. The forry W. C. Hite with many passen- gers was snatched from doom just as she neired the falls. Sergeant Burke, cignal service observer, says the storm possessed the characteristic features ol a cyclone. There were three distinct tnolions. an outward motion at the rate of spied varying from 25 to 65 mijes per ho.ir: socond, a spiral movement around a veitical axis, with an estimated velocity of to miles an hour, and a third, a bounding motion with con- tacts with the earth at irregular intervals. The saloon of John Thierman at Sixteenth and Magazine streets was crumbled beneath the storm. The woodwork ignited from the stoves, and Nick Sullivan, William Diemer and Ben Chelk wei e burned to death. The corpses were charred beyond possibility of identification. The residence of J. W. Bern- heim at 1208 Second street was struck by lightning in the midst of the crash and wan utterly demolished. The following are additional names of killed; Rudolph Senger, Genevieve Suns, Henry Lingo, Squire James M. Stevens, John Riehl, Charles Seibert, Sullivan, J. Miss Mary Schatter, A. S. Stoulerling, Elmer E. Barnes, Aiiuie E. Ndes, Clarence Loeser, Robert Hamilton, Mrs. John Koran, four unknown men, Bridget Crow, laundry girl; J. D. Hathaway, Chicago; John Paul Hill, John Raidy, William Sabrie, Bud Lusher, Walter Davis, infant of Mrs. Austin, fore- roan Eagle Brass foundry, Mrs. Joseph Niles, Mrn. Lelloff, Frank Paine, Mrs. MacComb, Robert Sullivan, James McCulline, Maggie McClure. The following deaths were reported by funeral directors at 11 o'clock: R. Deniker, Parker Cornell, Jacob Lusher, J. B. Schildt, Fritz Dep, Mr. Mason, Mr. McKee, M. Stevens, Frank Paul, Jr., Lncretia Dragoo, Mrs. Kelly, Chris Mill, John Emerick, John Hamilton, John Rement, Mrs. Bishop, Mr. Reil, Bob Lyps, Mrs. Mc- Laufhlin, Hin Emma Hostetter. A. S. Streiblmg, Jake Baendeiu, Theodora Angie- meir, Mr. Sullivan, Mrs. Horn. The friends of Claude Goodman, chief train dispatcher of the Louisville Southern, are searching for hu body, which is supposed to be buried in the debris. He left home to meet his brother at the depot Thursday night and has not since been heard from. The names of the Injured, in addition to those already given, are as J. H. Rilcy, nuuiter, bruised on side and breast; Tom Allen, ticket agent, Union depot, leg broken; wife of Sergeant George Uolinbach, slightly injured; the col- ored porter at the Seventh street depot, pinned down by a beam and left shoulder broken; Mrs. Joseph Sellers, Twelfth and Walnut streets, slightly injured; William Sullivan, Tenth and Walnut, arm broken; John Blaias, ribs and leg broken; two chil- dren of Louis Simm, Jr., aged 4 -.nd 5 years respectively; two older girls and a servant were taken out of the City hall, slightly injured, Mrs. John B. left arm broken; Mrs. Benof, injured; Mis.
