No new projects wore added to the .bill.of ISM. It will thus be seen, the report status, that tho principal work of the committee 1ms been the Investigation and examination .ot 'improvements-to which congress has repeatedly committed Itself, The river anrt harbor bill of 1S90 appropriated J26;000,OOC and placed certain works under the contract system which Involved the additional expenditure of J1G,000,COO.' It appears, therefore that by far tho greater number of projects appropriated for In this bill wore also expropriated far In the bill .61 1380, and Which are not yet completed. The report explains that that bill was referred to Gen. Casey, then chief of the United States engineers, who reported to President Harrison that only eight, of the Items seemed to bo of llmlted,or Local benefit. The press amount appropriated for these Items was $72,000. From thls'it.wlll be seen, the report continues, that tlie largo part of the projects contained,In the present bill passed the scrutiny 'and received the approval of Gen.

St. Louis, June 2. — No addiiion»l deaths as a result of the storm last Wednesday evening have been reported either in this city or East St. Louis since five o'clock Monday afl-emoon. Up to. ten o'clock Tuesday morning a carefully revised list o£ the dead from the storm in St. Louis fools up 141 names, :iv,d SS persons are at present unaccounted for. In East St. Louis the death list has crept up to 99, and ^7 persons arc reported missing-. The city rescue corps dug 'or bodies Tuesd'r.y in the ruins of the buildings at Seventh and KtHger streets »nd at the ruins of t.he Sawyer manufacturing- plant at :S19 Chouteau avenue. The buildings on three corners of th* former location were totally wrecked, and it is said that, several bodies are buried in them. One. of these strufr tures, at, the southeast corner, was • tenement house. The work, of rescue will be carried on until all of the Icrgcr ruins have been searched. Additional p:ing-s of laborers were placed ut work in the ruined districts of St. Louis Tuesday morning and order is rapidly being wrought out of chaoe. S.rntcmatic Relief Work. The relief work has assumed mair.- r.ioth proportions, ond it is now being prosecuted on a systematic and thorough basis. It now extends to every section of the affected district. Agents of the charities—Jj'cn nnd women—art milking a thorough canvass of every street, searching for destitute cases. Splendid results were had Monday, and many cases received attention. The relief fund is s' 1 " 0 " 1 " 1 !? handsomely, ta are also the donations. The relief fund Tuesday morning had crept up to nearly $120,000, nnd by • night- at least $20.000 more had been subscribed. The public schools in the tornadodU- Trict were reopened Tuesday morning with nearly the usual attendance. Poculiur Feature of Cyclone. . A -peculiar-feat lire of the effects ol t.he cyclone is the total disappearance of the house boats which lined either side of the Mississippi river. For a distance of four miles along the rivei front it is estimated that at least 7S of these .flat boats were anchored aud were occupied by about 300 persons. Xot one of the boats is left and the fate of their occupants is a mystery, It is believed that they may have deserted them at'the first blow of the storm nnd sought refuge among the railroad cars and elevators. Levee workers who were familiar with, this class of nondescripts, however, scout this beiief, and say that within a few days the finding of dead bodie»a.tlower i-ivcr points will swell the death list at least 100.
