Salem Daily News, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1890, Salem, Ohio THE SALEM DAILY NEWS. VOL. IL NO. 197. SALEM. OHIO, THURSDAY AUGUST 21. 1890. TWO CENTS. J Latex Details of tbe Wilkesbarre Disaster. Eleven People Were Killed and Fatally Injnrad During the Cyclone. Property Will Amoont to of Dectractton oa WILKESBAKRE, Pa., Aug. city presents a scene of awful devasta- tion. After the cyclone had spent fury Tuesday evening darkness fell so quickly upon the valley and the excite- ment everywhere was so intense that it was impossible to get any intelligence as to the extent of the damage to prop- erty and the loss of lifo. Now, how- ever, tho severity of tho cyclone is more and more demonstrated, and it is re- markable that so few livos were lost. Immense buildings in which were many people were unrooted and in many cases almost instantlv demolished, and this at a time when Wilkesbarre's streets are most crowded. It is indeed singular how so many people escaped the flying timber and debris of every character: Around the depots, the most frequented part of tho city, the worst scenes are presented, and when H is remembered that passengar freight car-, were lifted from the tracks upon which they stood and laid upon their sides, while Other cars were rushed along tho track by the great forco of the cyclone, a small concoction of its terrific velocity may be obtained. So suddenly did the storm make its appearance that the stoutest hearts were appalled. Tremendous thunderbolts and light- ning began to assort themselves about o'clock. It was evident that a heavy downpour of rain would come upon the town in a few and all who could sought shelter. Later an unusual center of activity was noticeable in the vicinity of Leo Park. The lower clouds began scudding in great circles at ter- rific speed. A suddon gust of wind sprang up and in a moment had in- creased to a roar. The Vulcan iron works, James foundry and the Keystone flour mill folt the first shock. Heavy material of all descriptions was dashed about like so much chaff. Main street wus in tho direct of the storm and the buildings on the west side of that thoroughfare suffered badly. Shade troos woro uprooted, and in fact but little was left untouched on Main street until Academy street was reached. Brick dwellings wero unroofed and the upper stories torn and some woro leveled to the ground. Fallen trees and timbers completely blocked South Main and Franklin streets. The storm swept along the railroad tc Five Points, where it turnexi eastward again, up Pearl street, out by Baltimore shaft, No. 2, then dashed up tho moun- tains and spent itself in the woods. The sweep of tho cyclone at Five Points was terrible. Tbe frail houses were blown away and the air was filled with debris from tho falling buildings. On Scott street the houses occupied by tho fami- lies of James McGinloy and James Hcn- agan woro levol'v to the ground. Mrs. Elila McG-inley and her young baby were crushed to de--th. as was John Mc- Ginley, a youth of thirteen years. Mary McGinnis, the little daughter of this most unhappy household, was so man- gled and crushed that sho will probably not survive. Tho Barber asphalt works, S. L. Brown Co.'s extensive b isiness block, comprising ton wholesale stores; the Murray coal breaker and the Holland breaker were so forcos '.iow in sxistonc-e arp cup'iMo of supplying all reasonable war.tv: that the interests of should be paramount to tho special of any trade or occupa- tion; that tho abolition of the wage should bo declared imperative, and the establishment of a system of co-operative owner-hip and of tho means of production is a necessity. THK ASIATIC SCOUKGE. MS OF m Sffl Story of Life iu Ohio Told In Different Cities. Tlmt CholiTH Slay Spreml In II mi y 1'eojiU' EtpoitMl to Coll- ttftKlon. Losnox, 21. A private inter- view with the doctor who examined tho cholera patient, Robert Loipb, elicited the fact that he wandered freely about the East End boforc ho became so ill that ho obligcnl to sfo to bed. During his wanderings he drank and conversed with a number of persons. Tho doctor has no doubt whatever that many per- sons have contracted tho disease in the coffee house where Leigh lodged, and expressed tho fear that it will spread rapidly. There is no question that tho man is suffering from Asiatic cholera in its worst foria. Tho disclosure of the nature of tho man's ailment has created a panic in tho neighborhood of his lato lodging place. though the health authorities display a greater degree of alarm than do tho peo- ple who have been exposed to the dis- ease. _ _ War ItlomllrM. LONDON, Aucr. 21. Juencmann, of Vienna, has invented iv fluid, the use of which ho claims will minimize tho hor- rors of war, it almost bloodless.

The fluid upon being released so affects persons inhal- ing ita odor that they immediately be- come unconscious and remain in that state half an hour or more. Tho in- ventor is endeavoring to obtain a tost of his invention by the military authori- ties. Jfcir York Fireman's Convention. WATETITOWS, N. Y..
