SJLX FRANCISCO, April to the prophecy of Mrs. Woodworth, George Erickson and several other re- vivalists who created considerable citement in Oakland some time ago, yes- terday waa the day on which San Fran- cisco and Oakland were to be destroyed by an earthquake and tidal wave, and the cities of Chicago and Milwaukee were also to suffer the same calamity. There was no indication of any convul- sion of nature here, but the "doom seal- as they have been termed, held their faith in -the prophecy up to the last moment. Several hundred persons who attended Mrs. Wood worth's lectures and became believers in her predictions of destruction left the city and took up their abode in the mountains. CLFN-TOX, 111., April strange man committed suicide near here Mon- day. He asserted his belief in the prophecy that Chicago would perish yes- terday and that he could avert the dire calamity by offering his life as a sacri- fice. He could not be dissuaded from the delusion, and while no one was pres- ent cast himself before the westbound train on the Illinois Central and was in- stantly killed. He was well dressed and about forty years of age. Letters show his name to be Hamilton and his home to be near Louisville, Ky. THE SILVE1J BILL. Conference on the OuesUon Some Very Shrewd WASHINGTON, April 15. Secretary Windom and Director Leech, of the Mint Bureau, had a conference with the House caucus committee Monday after- noon on the silver question. The chances of a veto of any bill that would not meet the President's stated views were discussed, and it was agreed that caution should be maintained in pre- senting a plan for the settlement of the question to the House. There was an almost general expression of opinion in favor of clinging to the lines of the House bill, with a concession to the silver men providing for the purchase of bullion certificates in lawful money or coin, at the option of the Secretary of the Treasury. The Senate caucus committee devoted the entire afternoon to the discussion of the silver question. The stand of the House committee was discussed and there was some talk of conceding cer- tain points to them, but when the meet- ing adjourned it with the under- standing that the Senate bill should be insisted on when the joint House and Senate caucus committees meet to-day to endeavor to effect some compromise.. Excursionists in Hard NEW ORLEAXS, April able excitement has prevailed here since Sunday evening, caused by the excur- sion train on the Illinois Central rail- road which left here Sunday morning being unable to return to the city, on account of overflow and washouts in the vicinity of Pass Manchael. This train has on board about 300 people, including many women and children. They will arrive to-day, coming via Jackson. All trains between New Orleans and Jack- son on the Illinois Central have been abandoned. Panic Among Wheat Gamblers. CHICAGO, April was a wild time in wheat Monday morning, the May future, which closed at Saturday, opened at 90 cents, immediately boom- ing to 62% and then falling to 89. There was talk of a corner, but the principal cause of these strange fluctuations ap- pears to be the terribly oversold mar- ket. The shorts were frightened and rushed into the market to buy, but found little for sale. A panic resulted, and after a little was sold the longs of- fered so much that prices fell. Clerks Hoycotted by HAVKX, Conn.. April An Alarming State of Aflkirs te Chicago. Carpenters' Strike Threatens to Re- sult in the Idleness of Men in Other Trades. DELUGED. i of Hftll Break id.. April rrolL Edward OTIara jail pi thus place a horse r of a notorious rf opera.4- part of this dry goods concerns here will attempt to form a combination to govern the em- ploymontof clerks. They propose to emplo. no clerk who forany cause what- ever has been discharged from any city dry goods house. A female clerk recent- ly discharged by F- M. Brown Co. be- cause she had been previously dismissed by William Neely Co.. will probably bring suit against the latter firm. of to lock Complete TmU' Aetloa of MaaaaehuotU VitiOM. CHICAGO, April industrial situation in this city Is fast becoming critical. Should the strike continue an- other week its effect will be to throw men out of employment, as there will be nothing for bricklayers, hod car- riers, lathers, plasterers, painters and the vast army of laborers who find work in connection with building operations to do, and they must all wait for the settlement of the carpenters' strike be- fore they can resume operations. It needs no argument to show how disas- trous such a condition ot affairs is likely to be. It will have a depressing effect on every branch of trade and industry in the city, and the longer the strife is continued the worse will the conse- quences be. The attempted resumption of work by the master carpenters Monday morning may be reckoned a complete failure. Very few of the journeymen who on Sat- urday promised to go to work were on hand, and of these but fewer still had the hardihood to go to work. That this is the state of affairs is affirmed by the strikers and admitted by the bosses. "We have reports from all parts of the city as to how things stand, and they all say that work is shut down tighter than said Secretary Howard. "I had eight men promise me to go to work Monday said a master carpenter at the Builders' Exchange, "and only two of them showed up, and they wouldn't go to work. They said they were afraid. In the same building were plumbers, gasfltters and other tradesmen all strongly in sympathy with the strikers and my two carpenters were afraid of these men. I offered them police protection, but they refused to work under such circumstances. So in- stead of-having eight men at work, as I expected, 1 had none." Owing to the recent failure of J. T. Meyer Sons, who had the contract for the woodwork on a big Adams street building, an assignee was appointed by ;he court to complete all existing con- tracts. The carpenters' strike stopped all work, and unless the building is soon completed great loss will, caused.- morning an application was made to Judge Prendergast to order work to proceed. The president of the Carpenters' Union and two members of ;he executive committee were present ,n court, and after an argument by them and by attorneys for the assignee, Judge Prendergast decided that he could not 'orce the men to work if they did not wish to do so, and that he would make no such endeavor. He instructed the assignee to comply with all the demands of the hours a day, forty ;ents an hour and full recognition of their union. BOSTON, April reported at a meeting of the Carpenters' District Council Sunday night that every trade organization in the State promises to financially support the carpenters in their eight and nine-hour demands. The union carpenters of the State number 0.500, and they are urged by their lead- ers to make every effort to secure the concessions without a Strike. April threat- ened strike of union carpenters for eight hours a day and thirty-five cents an hour began last eveaing. There are fully 100 houses in the city in the several stages of erection, and all these will stand as left yesterday until some settlement of the matter is reached. William Himself. April 35. The bod" ol McGregor, ajred .seventeen Years, was found last night suspended by the neck from rafter in Mrs. John- ston's boarding: bouse on Fifth arcane.

Eraest Rosen, a brother of the proprietor, was also badly burned. BLOOMnfGTOX, I1L, April surroundings were deluged Suday afternoon. Four inches of wattt fell inlets than an hoar. All are far out of their banks and great damage has been done to country roads and bridges. A phenomenal fall of hail as large as walnuts accompanied the storm. The glass in greenhouses was .demolished by the hail. At Minier, seventeen miles west of this city, nearly every window in town was broken. The country between Minier and here was deluged, and considerable injury was to the Chicago Alton track. Piles of ties were floated away, many of them being lodged on the rails. Young wheat and garden vegetables were crashed flat. iUxTouu 111., April heavy thvnder storm passed over here Sunday afternoon, accompanied by terrific light- ning. Hailstones as large as hen's eggs breaking many windows. KA.NKAKEE, 111., April mer- cury dropped thirty degrees in a short time Sunday afternoon and the heaviest rain, storm ever known in this vicinity fell for half an hour. The streets in the lower portion of the city were flooded, doing great damage to streets, side- walks, sewers and crops. The Kanka- Icee river is rising rapidly. COVISGTOS, Ind., April vi- cinity was visited Sunday afternoon by one of the most severe hail storms for many years. The storm came from the west and lasted twenty minutes. Hail- stones as large as walnuts and many as large as hen's eggs fell, covering the ground to the depth of four inches. Many window lights were broken by the hail and considerable damage was done tolruit and the growing crops. WRANGLING PLUTOCRATS. Callfornlumi Excited Over the of Senator Stanford and C. P. Hobtlnffton, Noted Railway Magnate. SAX FKAJJCISCO, April Stan- ford-Huntington quarrel still occupies public attention. It is that the Southern Pacific directors will act promptly in regard to Mr. Stanford's' demand for an investigation into the charges made against him by Hunting- ton. Mr. Huntington on Sunday said that the impression in some quarters seemed to be that he has charged Mr. Stanford with using the money of tho company to further his own personal ends. He did not make that charge, but he had charged that the company's money was used in Stanford's behalf, and that it was his (Stanford's) business to know at all times how the money oi being used and to see that it was only spent for the company's purposes. Huntington also insists that the South- ern Pacific general offices shall not be made a rendezvous for politicians, as he claims is the case under Mr. Stanford's administration. Fatal Row With Riotous Negro WHEELING, W. Va., April negro laborers on the line of the ex- tension of the Norfolk Western rail- road a few days ago became riotous, ow- ing to some dissatisfaction in connec- tion with their work. They destroyed a large amount of the company's prop- erty an d fired upon a company of whites who attempted to protect the railroad work. A. L. Meyer was killed and five other whites badly injured. After- ward a larjre posse of whites was se- cured and seven of the negroes were captured and placed in jail. Further trouble is feared. Canadian the KaUer. TORONTO, Ont, April a large gathering of Protestants here Sunday an address to Emperor William of Ger- many was adopted and ordered for- warded to him. The address prays that the Emperor will not encourage the re- turn of the Jesuits to Germany; and also protests against Germany entering into any negotiations looking to the recogni- tion of the Pope as "the head of a gov- ernment which is false in fact and hurt- ful in theory." The hope is expressed that thv Emperor "has been chosen of God to strike Romanism its fatal blow. Items Collected from Every tton of the State.

Sleeting; at Columbus for the Purpose of Reorganizing Under the Plan of Con. aolidatlon. COLUMBUS, O., April conven- tion of the coal miners of the State, for the purpose of reorganizing under the newly formed United Mine Workers of America, was called to order Monday morning by John P.

'Ihese are two organ- izations which were consolidated by the formation of the United Mine Workers. The convention will probably not com- plete its work before noon to-day.

The following1 committee on creden- tials was appointed: John Pcddicord, Bellaire; George Haskins, Washingtou- ville; John Farrell, Krumroy; John Campbell, Sherrodsville: John Buddy, Buchtel. The most important matter to come before the convention after a constitu- tion and by-laws are adopted and per- manent officers are elected will be the division of the State into districts. The prevailing sentiment seems to indicate that the State will compose but ofte dis- trict, though a large number of dele- gates are in favor of dividing Ohio into five districts. The Indiana and Illinois operators refused to attend the conven tion. ______________ tn the Fen for T.lfc. Coivornrs.

Believed That the Urrat Tracedlaa Has Appeared on the State tor the Last Time. CIXCIXXATI, April While in thi3 city last week, Edwin Booth, the trage- dian, received a letter from Lawrence Barrett, now in Europe, which makes it appear improbable that the latter will ever again appear on the stage. The letter stated that the operation to which Mr. Barrett submitted last summer would not finally relieve him of neck affliction for which it was under- taken as a last resort. The gloomy tid- ings just received are in substance that the complaint has again manifested Itself in enlargements in other parts of the body. This time the legs and arms are afflicted. One of the legs, Mr. Bar- rett states, is especially distorted with tumors. City Officials Indicted for Bribery.
