Fort Wayne Weekly Breeze (Newspaper) - June 9, 1892, Fort Wayne, Indiana Moi Rok Villuc Ino. A Wall paper Trust will stick at nothing. _ if we Are Good example is the Best Luster of virtue if we Are bad shame is the Best step to amendment. A new Post office in Nebraska has been named tonic. The postmaster pertaining thereto declares it pleasant to take. Italy is now tasting All the bitterness of financial distress. Disarmament or bankruptcy constitute the two horns of the dilemma which King Humbert must face. A Man in Barry 111., who fired six shots at his wife with a revolver was fined $6 by the indignant Justice of the peace before whom his Case was tried. It is Lucky for him that his gun was not a seven shooter. His Fine would have been $7. The regions of California not irrigated by artificial Means Are already suffering from the drought and crops Are greatly injured. This Side of the Rockies would have willingly spared them seven or eight inches of water and not missed it. Quot the glorious climate Quot has its drawbacks. The remarkable intelligence is sent from Cincinnati that a base Ball game was stopped because of the fact that the rays of the setting Sun got in the eyes of the batsmen and pitchers. When the relative positions of these two functionaries Are considered it becomes Clear either that the Sun is very Era tic in the Vicinity of Cincinnati or else that the players Are afflicted with a very extraordinary and aggravated forms of strabismus. All England is agitated Over the poisoning of the Duke of Westminster s racer Quot Orme Quot on the eve of the races. The incident seems like a chapter out of an antiquated sporting novel and will appear in the pages of scores of new ones. It illustrates How wide spread is the English interest in racing and it illustrates also the fact that some of the most thorough Blac Gards imaginable were interested in Orme s not running. New York has a guest just arrived from Rome and acknowledges that he is Quot a fugitive from Rome Quot and has doubtless left there for Rome s Good. He candidly tells a reporter of the recorder Quot i am Here to make propaganda for my cause. My principle is the abolition of private property of capitalism and government which Are All one namely the enemy of True he should be shipped Home by the first boat with a notice to stay there. The question of Quot Good common roads Quot is beginning to take prominence in All the wide awake states. There is no question in which All classes of people Are More directly interested. The Ordinary methods of Road making and Road repairing Are Only Quot playing at Road Quot the Iron horse Quot has solid Road Beds beautifully ballasted and bridged but the faithful four legged horse goes on mining and wearing out his life in pulling the Farmer s wealth to Market. The times Are Ripe for a Reform in country Road building. Western colleges Bent upon getting the Best have formed the disagreeable habit of offering the right Man for president a higher salary than Eastern colleges Are disposed to pay. Now of course your really Ideal president ought to be above sordid considerations. He ought to love learning for learning s Sake and supervise a College for supervision s Sake. But most of. Them have families dependent upon them for support and Are obliged to think of dollars a and cents. Hence a other things being equal the College which pays the most gets the Best president if the manuscript of John Banyan s Quot Pilgrim s Progress Quot is still in existence and can be produced at the world s fair it will be certainly a t matter of no Little interest. Mrs. J. W. Patton of Springfield iii., believes the manuscript to be now in of Possession of a family named Bates a Quot of living in Southern Illinois. It is said to have descended As an heirloom in the family from Bunyan s widow to whom after his death the manuscript had been returned by the printers of the Book. The unearthing of relics for exhibition at the world s fair will probably become quite common in some instances no doubt and we could wish it might by so in the present cases with supporting testimony that May be trusted. John is pouting. Deep Down beneath the impenetrable mask of the stolid Asiatic peasant is a Pride of race which has been deeply wounded. It is dimly dawning upon John that the caucasian whom he inwardly despises has told him to Quot get As he seeks the reason for this pouting meantime most tremendously he discovers that he is not wanted because he comes Here to get and carry away and not to contribute anything to the general wealth. He is neither useful As a citizen nor As an investor of moneys nor As anything save a labourer. Alien and Pagan he is marked Quot a. G. Return to he sees it. And we shall now hear him clamouring for citizenship and a Juring his false gods and vile habits. Pirates seem to have sprung up in the Mediterranean again. A Spanish sailing vessel was recently looted by them off the Morocco coast and within hailing distance of the Ocean Lane on which steamships Are plying night and Day from the Mediterranean ports to new York. Is the old free booting which so flourished at the beginning of this Century to be revived if so the United states which cleaned the Barbary pirates out of their nests and swept the coast of the Tripoli Taine with the Besom of destruction must Call out new de caters Prebles and Bainbridge and do the Good work Over again. But is it just possible that the cry about pirates is raised by John Bull who is anxious for a Chance to interfere in Morocco Swiff Turne s essay in the dramatic Arena will excite much interest among the poet s admirers. Coming so soon after the production of Tennyson s play Quot the Sisters Quot will attract additional attention. The poet laureate has not proved himself a master of dramatic situations and effects but he has produced a play which is a great treat for All lovers of Good literature. If Swinburne has the dramatic instinct More highly developed than Tennyson he has not yet Given evidence of it in his writings. He is however a Superb master of English a consummate Lyrist and a poet of exquisite taste. We shall probably have no exciting scenes in his new play possibly no absorbing plot but we Are sure of melodious lines and delightful songs. And after All we shall find much refreshment in an occasional change from the tank drama Quot Annie Rooney Quot and Quot the Bogie one of the most famous institutions of the presbyterian Church in the West Quot Lane Seminary Quot Cincinnati once presided Over by Lyman Beecher professor Stone and men of National Fame is in a turmoil. The Peculiar views of or. Briggs have created wide discussion and it is now stated that professor Smith of the institution has boldly come out As an advocate of the doctor s doctrine in a pamphlet entitled Quot biblical scholarship and the pamphlet has caused a genuine sensation. A storm of opposition to or. Smith s utterances was soon aroused but he remained firm and now it is announced that trustees Alexander Mcdonald s. J. Broadwell and Peter Rudolph Neff All prominent men and millionaires have resigned leaving the Board As a whole in sympathy with professor Smith. The next general Assembly which meets at Portland Maine will Likely tackle the subject and will find it knotty. A portion of Dubuque seems to be situated Over a vast subterranean Lake. Such a state of affairs has Long been suspected and the sudden disappearance a Short time ago of half an acre of ground is Strong proof of the theory. Fortunately no houses were situated on the ill fated half acre. Had the phenomenon occurred in a crowded portion of the City it would have occasioned one of the greatest catastrophes of history. Some such misfortune has been frequently predicted As on the programme for Chicago. Engineers have shown or attempted to show the possibility that her heavy buildings might sink out of sight and one wild eyed negro preacher has had a vision in which the Waters of Lake Michigan were holding a riotous dance far above the City s housetops. According to his theory Chicago is to be sunk by the weight of her own wickedness. None of these Prophe cies have As yet come True. On the contrary Chicago real estate is going up All the time. Even a slight slump is improbable and As for the Bottom s dropping out As it did in the Case of that half acre in Dubuque the thing is impossible a Valley of death. Awful catastrophes in the Oil to contest. Floods caused by the Banting of a Diu. Become an Ocean of fire a Titus value and Ull City in bal Nso fearful less of life and property. Scores a need or . The Oil regions of Pennsylvania were visited sunday by a disaster from fire and water that is Only eclipsed in the history of the state by the memorable flood of Johnstown just three years ago. A Pittsburg dispatch says it is impossible at this time to give and thing like an accurate idea of the loss of life and property As chaos reigns throughout the devastated Region and a terrible conflagration still rages in Oil City. It is Safe to say that not less than 150 lives have been lost. Nearly one Hundred bodies have already been recovered and Many people Are still missing. The number May far exp eed 150, but this is Reid added As a conservative estimate. The property loss will reach far into millions. At Titusville the loss is estimated at $1,500,000 Oil City $1,500,-000 Corry $e0,000 Meadville $150,-oco, and surrounding country probably a million More. For nearly a month it has been raining throughout Vestern Aud Northern Pennsylvania almost incessantly and for the last three or four Days the downpour in the devastated regions had been very heavy. The constant Rains had converted All the Small streams into raging torrents so that when the cloudburst came sunday morning the streams were soon beyond their boundaries and the great body of water came sweeping Down Oil Creek to Titusville which is eighteen Miles South of its source. The lower portion of the town was soon inundated. The flood came so quickly that the people had not time to reach a place of safety. The water soon swept a number of Oil tanks Down the Stream and in some Way not known they were ignited. In less time than it takes to Tell the Story the flames spread to the surrounding buildings and before they could be subdued five blocks had been burned. The Oil from the scores of broken tanks ran into the Creek and was ignited by floating debris. In a few minutes the Creek was ablaze from Shore to Shore and As it was carried Down the Stream death and destruction followed in its Wake. Everything inflammable took fire and by the time it reached Oil City All the Bridges Between the two Points were consumed. Story of tie Lii Saster. At Oil City a Large proportion of the population was distributed along the Banks and Bridges of the Allegheny River and Oil Creek watching the Rise of the flood in both streams. At the time an ominous covering of Oil made its appearance on the Crest of the flood pouring Down the Oil Creek Valley and the foreboding Waves of Gas from distillate and benzine could be seen above the surface of the Stream. People began to slowly fall Back from the Bridge and the Creek but they had hardly begun to do so when an explosion was heard up the Stream which was rapidly followed by two others and Quick As a Flash of lightning the Creek Lor a distance of two Miles was filled with an awful mass of roaring flames and Billows of smoke that rolled High above the Creek and River Hills. Quot Eun Quot yelled a Hundred voices and the people turned like stampeded cattle and started for the Hills. The panic stricken crowd shrieked madly in their efforts to escape. Quot women and children were trampled under foot and about Twenty were severely bruised and had to be picked up by a few of the cooler Heads and carried out of harm s Way. Almost As quickly As the words can be written fully 5,000 people were on the streets wild with terror Rushing to the Hills. Men forgot that they were men and scores of men women and children were knocked Down and trampled upon both by horses and people in the mad flight for places of safety. Just As this frantic mass of humanity had started up Center Street the second explosion occurred knocking Many people Down shattering the windows in a the main part of the town and almost transforming the Day to night with the a immense expanse of smoke. Hundreds of people thought that the Day of judgment had come and Many prayers were heard mingling with the moans and lamentations of the fleeing multitude. The heat was intense and the weird and awful spectacle presented to the panic stricken people was that a cloudburst of fire bordered and overlapped by a great canopy of dense Black smoke. Men wept and women fainted. Many left everything behind them and ran or were helped to the Hills where after they were out of danger came the anxiety and suspense for relatives and friends who had been along the Creek watching the flood when the Avalanche of flame came. Most of the bodies recovered Bear evidence of having met death from burning Oil Many of them being burned almost beyond recognition and several of them in such a terrible manner As to leave the bodies without the least semblance of human form. A Birds Eye vicar of the situation As the smoke from the burning Oil on the Waters Rolls away discloses a pitiful bight nothing but a mass of burned and flooded ruins from Monroe Street East to the most Eastern line of the City limits. The streets lie filled full of debris overturned houses half burned parts of what were once Railroad cars and empty Oil barrels. A great Deal of live Stock was lost and it will take Days to got the streets in a passable condition. The loss in the county by washouts and loss of Bridges will be enormous. There is not a county or township Bridge fill Many Miles that is not washed out and the roads in every direction Are nearly impassable. The Western new York amp Pennsylvania and the Union amp Titusville roads have not attempted to run trains and will be obliged to spend an be noxious amount of Money before trains a in be run in any direction. New York anti Hill men organize. A Dele Gratton favourable to Grover Cleves land chosen to the Chicago convention Hill convention electoral nominees endorsed. Convention at Syracuse. A Syracuse n. A dispatch says the Quot dandelions Quot Are on top to Day As much As Hill was on top in february. The purpose of that Early convention was to give Hill a grand Send off. It was believed by him and his near friends that a declaration by the democracy of new York in his favor would be the initiative of a movement that would land him in the White House. Subsequent events proved the fallacy of this Promise. Hill was Short sighted and the ladder on which he expected to climb to the chief magistracy gave Way under his weight. When the convention of to Daj was called Hill was politically prosperous. Since then Hill s decadence has occurred and Cleveland s Rise into new prominence has been equally Quick. The conditions to Day Are different from those under which the Call was issued. In fact they were called into being by the february convention and a pretext was Given for the gathering of the dandelions now. The consequences of the action taken will probably drive both Cleveland and Hill out of the Field and leave the Way Clear to nominate Russell or Pattison from the East or Boies or Palmer from the West. Unprejudiced political observers of Long experience predict that the nomination will not come to the state of new York. Everyone concedes the eminent respectability of the delegates that assembled but old hands at the business of politics Call it a mob that could not carry on a Campaign because of the Lack of working element. Such comments it should be stated come mostly from Hill lookers on. Chair Man Kernan s speech As delivered was not at All the speech that had been mailed by the press association. The most Savage of his thrusts at Hill did not appear in the written pages. There was no mention of him by name. He was ignored As Tot Illy As Cleveland was in the convention of february which Kernan dubbed Quot the Snowshoe convention Quot but Hill s administration and his control of the party were scored without mercy. Quot the delegates of the february convention Quot he declared Quot will represent what a few men thought then but the delegates from this convention to Chicago will represent what the people want when he reached the Climax of Cleveland and for the first time mentioned his name it was the Blaine convention of 1884 Over again As much As any state convention could be with smaller numbers. The delegates sprang to their feet mounted chairs and shout d themselves hoarse. Fairchild and Grace from the platform started the Waves of applause with their umbrellas and it was at least ten minutes before the speaker could go on. Another outbreak came when he made a demand that Cleveland should be nominated. This was a step beyond the policy of the most conservative but apparently every one joined in the applause. The Way was then easy for saying Quot democratic disputes will end at Chicago. New York democrats will accept the decision of the court As this sentiment was cheered to the Echo and it showed that the delegates were still Loyal democrats. The platform adopted contains declarations against Republican fraud the Tariff and free Silver. Result of a drink cure. Son of a prominent Kansas 3ian passes away ill violent spi Sims. Of orge Bradshaw son of a prominent resident at Wichita kan., died from causes alleged to have been brought about by the treatment he was taking for the cure of in Briety. He entered what is known As the Quot Huntsinger Institute Quot and soon after taking his first shot his mind became affected. He was treated again and that evening had spasms. His fronds saw the physicians in charge but they advised a continuance of the treatment and gave Bradshaw three shots again. About Midnight after an evening of wild raving Bradshaw was again taken with spasms which lasted until Daylight and a Little later he died. His friends will make a full investigation. May s big record of rain. Average precipitation for Twenty years nearly double in Chicago. The United states Veather Bureau records show that during the Mouth of May rain fell in Chicago on no less than Twenty one Days and As is believed by 99 per cent of the population the precipitation was rather heavy every time. The rainfall for the month was 6.77 inches a most remarkable record even for Chicago. A Normal May precipitation for the last Twenty years is 3.82 inches but the May just Over put this far in the rear not quite doubling the Ordinary allowance. Sues tie governor of Texas. At Austin Texas a $50,000 damage suit has been filed against governor Hogg by Charles t. Bonner of Tyler on the charge of defamation of character. It is alleged that governor Hogg called Bonner Quot a professional liar Quot in a Campaign speech. Bonner stands High at the Quot Texas bar for integrity and honesty.
