SMITH It Extended From the fndlnn Territory Across Kansas Into Missouri — Bfore Death* Reported From Towanda—Seven Persons Killed Near Wamego—The Iluru- ngc at Augusta, Wellington, Wichita and Other Place* Along the Jlonte of the Hurricane. i KANSASCITY , April a.—Fifty killed. Those two words when story of the recent Kunsus cyclone is told, will represent the loss of human life as near as, can be counted now, Telegraphic communication with a ma jority of the towns in the stricken district is as yet very imperfect, and there is still no connection whatever with a few points that were in the path of the storm. The first news over the restored line tells of destruction and death. It is believed that most of the worst disasters have been reported, but there are still to be heard from New Kiowa and DcGraff, and the eouu- try districts where the storm created the greatest havoc. Many- isolated fatalities will doubtless come to light within the next few days, swelling the death list to a considerable extent. The present list of dead, including those who have died from their injuries now number twenty-seven. The death roll is:. ' AtTowanda—Dr. John D. •odfrey, aged 78., retired physician; Herohell Culp, aged 21, a farmer's son; John Bailey, aged 21, a railroad laborer; John Blake, aged 47, merchant; Geo. Blake, aged 6, the latter's son; Miss Annie Robbins, aged 35, postmistress; Earl Karr, aged 11; C. L. Westgate, aged 32. At Augusta Kan.—Albert Barnes, aged 23, farmer; infant child of Wm. Rhodes; Harmon Hoskins, aged 30, u farmer; infant of the latter; Mrs. Herbert Abbott. Near Wellington—Mrs. Joseph Showalters and infant child; Wm. Little and his four children. At Sauth Haven—Benjamin H. Mapie, and James II. Maple, his son. At Wichita—Pat Martin, former. At Eureka—Miss Mary Riser. At Strong City—John Glosser, Mrs. John Glosser and infant child. In Missouri there were only two fatalities, so far as known, as follows: At Mohcrly, Mrs. James Connelly, and at St. Joseph the seven-year-old daughter of Rev. E. B. Uushnell. These deaths resulted from injuries during yesterday's gale, both victims being struck and killed by flying missiles hurled by the wind.

Annual Meeting of the Stockholder* of the Exposition at Chicago, CHICAOO , April 2.—The annual meeting of the stockholders of the world's Columbian exposition is in progress today. It was called to order at the Rand XIcNally building at 10 o'clock with Hon. W. T. Balcor presiding. The attendance of stockholders was large, about two-thirds of the capital stock being represented by participants or proxies. It showed that the receipts of the exposition from all sources up to date have been in the neighborhood of five and a quarter million of dollars, with expenditures of four and a half millions. Of the total receipts three aud a half millions have come from stock subscriptions, and one and a half from the sale of city of Chicago .— The schedule of the depart- doveloped some interesting Twenty-one thousand dollars have been spent for postage stamps and $32,000 in commissions of various kinds, although the kinds arc not stated, The salaries of office clerks have aggregated 8106,000 and of offi cials of the local board 8137,000. Tho rent of offices amounts to 832,000 and the printing and stationery to 824,000. Tho exposition takes a few newspapers to see what has been said about the fair in other cities, and these have cost nearly 88,000. The lawyers have got about'812,000 and foreign agents over 8100,000. Not a dollar, however, has been paid out for advertising in the thousands of newspapers ut home and abroad, whose columns have daily contained more or less matter in relation to the enterprise. The amount so far paid out to the contractors on the various buildings at Jackson Park exceeds one' and a half millions. Landscape gardening has cost one hundred thousand dollars, although ono might travel over the grounds all day and wonder where it has gone to, and it has cost fifty thou sand dollars for police tj protect the stone, wood and iron work of which tho buildings arc being constructed. Another one hundred thousand dollars has been spent for railway sidings to facilitate the delivery of building material to the contractors. Twenty-four thousand dollars of tho stockholders' money was paid out to secure the right-of-way for the extension of the tracks of a single railway to the fair grounds. The cost of superintending the construction of the buildings has so far aggregate Si>r>,00l: and S57,00^jM»ve..-ibe«l»,;-p» ? pended in temlKwart building' that are either already pulled' down or shortly will be. All' these disbursements are, of course, outside of those of the national governmeukcominlsslon. The executive staff of the IflT^trt.»ilUMl.fl now numbers nearly eight hundred souls, and it costs 872,000 a month to pay them. President Baker has been paid at the rate of 812,000 a year, with an assistant at the same enormous figure, and the expenses of the president's oflice alone have been 850,000. Tho cheapest department has been that devoted to press and printing. Men's Milwaukee oil grain lace shoes calf gusset, hemlock soles and counters—solid as a rock. Only 81.

KANSAS CITY April 2.—The Star's special from Wamego, Kan., says: Seven people killed is the dreadful record of Thursday night's cyclone. The dead are: Mrs. Albert Eggers and two ehil dron, aged 3 and 5 years, respectively; Joseph Johnson, a laborer on the Eg- gerB farm; Charles Taylor and Mrs, Charles Taylor and their 0-year-old child. The house of Albert Taylor was completely demolished and scattered broadcast over his farm. Mrs.-Eggers was found clasping in her'arms the dead body of her young child. The body of the elder child was found some distance from those of its mother and brother. The faces all had the appearance of being powder burncd.dust and dirt having been forced below the skin by the forco of the wind. Albert Eggers was found about midnight wandering about his farm. He was in a dazed condition and had sustained a fracture of the right arm aud other bad bruises. His injuries may result fatally. His mind now appears to be completely lost, the result of learning the dreadful fate of his wife and children. The house of John Taylor was moved some distance from its foundation and was then dashed to the ground with terriblo force, wrecking It completely. Taylor's body was found among the debris crushed and mangled beyond recognition. His !)-year old child met death in the ruins, its body being found near that of its father. Mrs. Taylor was rescued from the ruins in an unconscious condition. She cannot recover. The house of J. T. Genns, occupied by J ohn Fullmer, was twisted out of shape and almost completely wrecked Fulliner's wife and mother were terribly injured. Thoy will probably recover. Other houses In the vicinity were badly damaged by tho storm, but no other fatalities have been reported, Slight Damage at Kiowa. KANSAS CITY , April 2.—A dispatch from Kiowa dated April 1st, which has been awaiting transmission ever since has jUBt be received, stating that the storm there did no considerable damage, • Kiowa was in the direct line of the storm and it had been feared here toforo that loss of life might have occurred there.

News and Gossip From State Capital. the Consternation Among the Backers or Morrill for Oovernor Created by the Withdrawal of Murdoch: Fro»» the Kuri»—The Charges Against Hovey and Stover—Topeka Visited by the Next Governor. TOI'KKA , Kan., April 2.—[Special.]— John P. St. John has seut forth his 'declaration of principles" for tho coming campaign. It is to the effect that If the Republicans place* A. W. Smith In nomination for governor, he, John Peter, will stump the state against him. Bless the memory of the old martyr, when has the Eepublicau party placed any man in nomination for anything whom he did not Bght? But there is a deep, dark spot in St. John's heart, filled with crystallzed hatred for the said A. W. Smith. It was occasioned by a little Incident happening the legislature over which said Smith presided as speaker. Certain persons, with malice aforethought and no fear of John Peter, were advocating a measure changing tho name ot St. John county to Logan county. Two or threo members were defending the third-termer and wore making it warm for the speaker for not helping them kill the measure. Speaker Smith quietly called a momber to the chair and took a hand in the discussion, showing the hypocritical demagogue and ingrate up In his true character, and the bill passed. From that day revenge at any cost against Smith is a Bweet morsel to John Peter. But St. John and his wreckers are to camp on the trail of anybody the Republicans may nominate. That is the only means they have of making the money for which they are working. The opposition, whether in the form of Democrats, Union Labor, Alliance, or Anarchists, are all laboring for one common purpose— defeat of Republicanism. They will welcome any agency or assistance, from angels or devil, which will assist them. St. John only wants the money. He can't get it from any other source, and the hilarious spectacle is likely to heave in sight of the Democratic party flanked on one side by the Alliance and on the other by the St. Johnites, the procession hcadedby the anarchists with red flags, • While the Stragglers are prodded up by tho "red legs." The withdrawal of Murdoch has created consternation among the federal building crowd. They were not prepared for the move. They had not recovered from the fight between the two Seventh district candidates, and thought, as the contest waxed warm, there might be a chance for their candidate to slip in. The fates, or the weather, or some uncontrolable force, Seems to bo against their schemes. Several weeks ago I made the prcdic- friends not one man in ten in Shawnfce county is for Morrill. y It is safe to say that this city visited this week by tho next govern of Kansas. There 1 wore three of his Smith was hore conferring with world's foir committee; Morrilt w trying to get himself saved from some of his friends, and Wright was looking for a man who was not for ono of tho other fellows. All appeared satisfied with their visit, and the merry war goes on. , The People's party managers, have been in session two days and nights this week, and have called a state convention at Wichita. June IS. They concluded they would leave all to the delegates, and made a call which will allow them to name a full ticket. At that noted gathering in this city on Kansas Day, T. B. Wall, of Wichita, responded to tho toast, "What arc wc here for?" He might have raised thq same query at the Sedgwiek 'county Republican convention. vi., v.-;. It is believed that .St;.;#»6tt.,w,lU yet charge the Republican* wWyT^th the e [amine in Russia. : " Web Wilder has fllleS a column of the Capital with his dictum to the Republican party of KansaR. Tho old barnacles, out and in, will yet cause Morrill to return to that "rest" ho has so much enjoyed during the lost two campaigns. II THOMAS JEFFERSON. NAVAL MILITIA. An Orgiiiilzittlon will Probably he Kneeled at Duluth. DUI.UTII , Minn., April 2. —Apropos of the late report of the committee on military affairs of the house of representatives of the defenseless coudition of the grain states of Minnesota and the Dakotus the grain elevators and flouring mills of Duluth and Minneapolis, and the Bessemer ore fields and timber districts tributary to Duluth, Dwight E. Woodbridgo, of this city, has received from Acting Secretary of the Navy .fames R. Soley a letter on a naval militia for the head of Lake Su porior. The report of the house committee shows Cbw grave that body considers the situation, in view of any possible complications with Great Britain, for it states that in thirty-six days a force of 100,000 men from the Indian possessions could be moving into'Du- luth, St. Paul and Minneapolis, aud it recites the .flour and grain stores at Duluth and.Minneapolis and the resources about Duluth, and says the United States could not feed its troops if these cities were taken. It also says that the control of the great lakes would be in the hands of the British, with one wing of the army at Duluth and another wing of another army at Lake- Erie. The letter of Assistant Secretary Soley shows that the navy department concurs in these fears and believes the formation of an effective naval militia ut the head of Lake Superior will be an effective assistant to the government. He urges the organiza tion of a naval militia at Duluth as soon as the proper legislation can be passed by the state, and promises all the aid possible from the government, both in the way of supplies and vessels for practical drill, for "what the government considers a highly important auxiliary to the naval defense of the United States." The next legislature will he asked to pass the needed laws, and a strong nuval reserve militia will be established at Duluth. Tried to Unug I'lumulf. HOUHTOX , Tex., April 3.—Chas. McMullen, a negro in jail here, attempted to hang himself while uuilcr the impression that he wus to be taken to Sedalia. From this it is supposed that he is the man who committed the Taylor outrage. Weather Indications. WABUUfOTOjf, April 2.— Forecast till 8 a. m. Sunday. For Kansas: Generally fair; slightly warmer; southeasterly winds. tion that Murdock'sname would not be before the state convention. I now make the same prophecy as to the name of E. N. Morrill. It is" not necessary to discuss all the many whys 'and wherefores, but will only suggest that when a cause becomes so desperate as to demand the bulldozing tactics which which have been inaugurated by some of, the very prominent federal- officials within the past few days, its days are numbered and its weeks are few. It was a bad break when these men undertook to parcel out tho offices of the state, and to pack a convention of the Republican party of the state of Kansas! Hut when they say to their subordinates their job depends on doing the will of their master their cause is indeed weak, and the death rattle can be distinguished above their anguish. The visiting manager from the Perkins camp last week departed without promising to "come again." And Ady secured another chance for his whito ally. He bus been on the hunt all week. Ho visited some of the southwest counties, but got no encouragement. In the meantime the mean, contemptible two-column screed printed in the Troy Chief last~ week has been struck off in cheap pamphlet form, and is being sefltover the state by Cy Iceland and Sol'Miller. It is composed of Insinuations and hints, alleging that if so disposed, they could make serious charges against Hovey ' and Stover. The only charge they can make is that these officials did their duty, and the bosses of Doniphan county were badly worsted in one scheme of trying to make every other county in the stato pay a portion of their state taxes, and another In which they tried to secure all the taxes assessed against tho. St. Joe bridge instead of allowing it to be distributed with tho rest of the taxes of the St. Joe railroad. If you desire to be accused of about all the crimes in the decalogue just tread on tho very tender corns of these gentlemen who run Doniphan county. The orders were given the Topeka Journal from Charlie Gleed on Thursday, and it now turns "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" just as Morrill says, [t printed the names of six men in the city who had declared for Morrill and claimed Shawnee county was solid, it did not print the thousand uamcs of prominent, influencial Republicans who declare it would bo a great mis take to go before the country with n candidate who is the president of two national banks. Neither docs it print the names of Postmaster A im King and all bis employes, who are solid for Morrill; it left out Dick Walker and all his men, Cy Leland and his force, Joe Ady and his man Soper, Barnard Keller and his pension office—by some oversight the Journal overlooked the names of these men, who are for Morrill. And without these men and their Chlcngo Celebrating the 140th Annlrer- . sary or His Ilirth. CmOAGO, April 3, —To -day is the 149th annlvesary of tho birth of Thomas Jefferson, and although the National Association of Democratic clubs has recommended that the event be observed on April 13th, because it was the date chosen by Jefferson 's contemporaries for the first event of the kind in 1830, and at which President Jackson gave the historic toMt "The Federal Union—It Must Be Preserved," tho Iriquous club of this elty , will celebrate _ tho. anniversary to -night at the Pajmer house with gone of the ;,i lairg«at and most brilliant banquets, ever given by this band of braves.
