Mr. Ray, the ' murdered girls' father, said he had promised the Cairo people and the Wickliffe people that be would let them :know before the affair took place what they .'wanted to be there for. Be further stated that the prisoner was to be burned at the stake. A collection waa ordered taken up for the bene fit of the bloodhound that so faithfully aided in the capture.

He came with a lirnt step and confident air to the edge of the platform and said: "Please be quiet, everybody. My name Is C. J. Miller. I am from Springfield, Di. My Wife lives at No. 716 North Second street. I :am here among you to-day looked upon as one of the most brutal men before the people' stand here surrounded by men who are excited; men who are not willing to let the law take its course; and, as far as the crime is concerned, I have committed no crime. and certainly no crime gross enough to deprive vie of my life and liberty. I had some rings which I bought in Bismarck of a Jew peddler. I paid him 64.50 for thent. I left Springfield on the 1st day of July and , came to Alton; from Alton I went to East St. Louis; from there to - Jefferson Barracks; thence to De Soto; thence to Bismarck and to Piedmont; thence to Poplar Bluff; thence to Rosie. to Jonesboro; then on a local .freight to Malden; from there to Sikeston on the 5th of Julythe day I am , supposed to have committed., the offense. That day I was at Bismarck. gentlemen" But he was here interrupted. Members of the mob shouted to let him talk. but there was too much noise for him to be heard. The Sheriff then ateppect to the fraht and , Said: , For God's sake, 'gentlemen. I must take this man to Jail- I am bound by my oath to deliver this man to jail.' , The mob had become somewhat collet by this time, and one man shouted: - Tee. take him to jail until 8 o'clock; then ere went him", , . - TAKEN To JAIL. The prisoner was helped off the pile and, taken to jail. ' The crowd dispersed soon atter and all that could find dinners ate them, but thcitisands Could not be accomtno! dated. Farm wagons and venicles of evert 1 description could be numbered by the bun. dreds The people for fifty miles about were on hand to witness the execution. As the hour of 8 o'clock arrived the mob hurried to the sail yard. The Jail was entirely sue. rounoed. The bout set for the. final act had arrived and those who were to be the executioners were on hand. Before Miller bad been brought from the Jail. Mr. Ray. the lather of the girls had changed his mind about the burning. Be had a lingering doubt as to the men being the murderer and felt that while it would be an awful crime to bang an Innocent maa it would be worse ' to burn him. and as a compromise with the mob proposed that Miller be hanged instead of burned. This was agreed to, and a rush was made for the lad. Chief of Police Ma( honey. of Cairo. was Just leaving, and they shouted for him not to Close the door. The mob rushed in and seized the prisoner. He was stripped naked and his shirt tied around his loins. A long chain was placed around his neck and body, and he was led through the streets followed by thousands of the pee-pie to the depot. near which a platform had been placid. Hetwas lifted on the platform , amid shouts oti 'Set it on ffrel" "Burn him!" - . , - g Tait Essors0. , The chain was...taken from his body and - hooked around his neck. A man climbed a telegraph pole, and the long end of the chain was passed up to him and be made it fast to the cross arm. This took up about all the slack. and the other men brought a long ' forked stick, which was placed between Mil- ler's hips. and his- body was lifted up sev eral feet and allowed to drop. It is believed the first fall broke his neck, but It was re- peated. Theo numerous shots were fired Into his body, and be was left hanging until It was certain that life was extinct. Then, as If their desire for blood had not been ea. tiated, they set tire to tee indemabie materiel under him, which had originally been intended to burn him to death . and the corpse was roasted and charred out of resent-, bleat,' to a human form-- 1 , Springiteld Careers - I Bowls!

Last night in Pomeroy was one that Will never be forgotten by those who were here. Darkness followed quickly In the wake of the tornado,: and those who escaped 1 death and Injury were - compelled , to grope their way aiming the ruined homes,' guided along by t the - cry of 1 some poor unfortunate who was pinned under the falling timbers. Almost every light of any description whatsoever was destroyed, and people from the surrounding places who were the nrst to reach the scene failed to bring lanterns with them, It The search for the 'victims, therefore, was 1 necessarily slow till morning came. It was not until the first streaks of light appeared in the east that the enormity of the disaster dawned upon the people. They looked out where once; a city stood and saw nothing but a timber-strewn prairie. Every residence to the south of the railroad tracts had disappeared, and t the spires of several churches in - the place -- that only a few hours before- shot upward to the kies were nowhere to be seep.- Pomeroy yesterday had a wealth of , shade I trees, but this morning nothing was to be Seen of them save a broken and twisted mass of limbs and roots. , Horses and cattle lay dead in the streets, pigs stuck In the -sides of houses, and dead cats and dogs and -chickens were scattered over the grounds. Poets of human blood mingled with the mud at every I turn, showing where some victim of the tornado had been tossed after the life luta been crushed out of him. The air was full iof moans and sobs and - shrieks, and - every I other face met en - the , street was stained with tearit Tho people in Pomeroy seemed powerless toile anything for the - sufferers. and it was not until this morning early ,J when the people from outside towns arrived . that anything - was - done ' toward ,,-recover- ing - the i dead -- and -- caring fort - the wounded. What is -called the Post !Office- building. but what has recently been used as a billiard room, was turned into--e . morguei and hospitals were , established in the remaining buildings, the biggest.: one -be lug - the Pomeroy Hotel. The -, improvised morgue was a ghastly one. Billiard tables were turned into slabs. and on these the mangled remains of the dead were placed. The floor was badly sunken in the middle,hod here the blood as It dripped from the tables ran in small streams, soon, with the asaietance of the water from the rapidly melting Ice. forming a puddle up to the tops of the attendants' shoes. On the tables were paodles without - beads and bodies without larms, bodies whose legs had been blown awayby the cyclone and bodies with heads that had been crushed beyond recognition by the falling timbers.' On one table lay the remains of an old woman, a hole as big as a mans list torn. In the rear part of her head. Close by was a baby not more than a year old, one of its legs gone, and its little arms mashed to a jeIly. - COURSE op ERB STORM. : The tornadofor tornadofor such it e from the Northwest All those who saw it agree . that it was not of the funnel-shaped but came bounding along the prairie 'like a huge ball It was of a dark-green ,Color. and was accompanied by a terrific noise. There are many 'who saw it when it was far out of town. These gave the alarm and many were preparea for the monster when it reached the village. Most of the people, however. became -panic-stricken. I They ran out of their houses and fled up the streets crying and sbrieking till struck by the flying timbers and whirling trees. - The cooler ones. however especially those who were near to them.. made for the two caves In the southeast part of the towns built especially for such occasions as this. Into one of these caves collected , itwenty-five - people and in another fifteen. LAB escaped without a scratch. It is pretty ell agreed that the tornado struck the town about 6:50 o'clock. A half hour before this it was exceedingly hot and sultry. and save for a small cloud, there was no evidence of the approaching whirlwind. The tornado was but of a few minutes' duration, and was followed by a terrific rain storm.; which continued at intervals more or less throughout the day. - The path of the storm was about an eignth of a mile in width and two miles long.

By that time there was a good supply of doctors, not large enough, however, to care for , the wolinded. The women of Fond and Fort Dodge went out as nurses. and there was a plentiful supply of bedding and food. As rapidly as possible the injured were taken to the improvised hospital and given medical ettention.

A: Ills-bury was interviewed to-day regarding the prospective wheat crops and grain prospects In general. lie said: . Under the mOstfavorable conditions I do not estimate that Minnesota' and the two Dakotas can raise over 68.000.- 000 or 70.000.000 bushels - of ., wheat. .

It takes 20,000.000 for bread and seed for the three States. That leaves 50,000,000 bushels. As the Minneapolis mills tise 50,090,000 of Wheat alone in a season; as the mills at Lake snperior they run), need 15.000.000 or 20.000.000 bushels more, and the other mills In the State outside of Minneapolis and Lake Superior generally, grind 20,000.- 000 or 25,000,000 bushels, one can easily figure there will be quite a squabbling for the next year's crop, and if the farmers, are not forced to sell the great bulk of the crop during the first two or three Indliths of:the season wheat will be scarce.

The Fate oethe Empire Dependent Upon , Its Igilitsry Strength VI Pnrin t BlotsCause of the Trouble Behring Sea Controversy. - I BERLIN, July i 7.When the new Reichstag met to-day. for the first time, for the consideration ot regular, parliamentary - business nearly all the ,897 members , were 'In their places, for it was known teat theaGovernment would at once Introduce the army bill, and general Interest: was felt as to the concessions. if any,; that the Government had made on the original bill. , Immediatery the formal opening of the r house was conchaded. Chancellor von Cap?ivi ascended - the ;tritr tine and in a long speech Introduced; the amended measure. Ile stated' .that the present form of the bill--represented- the andulmum that the I Government would accept 111 men or money .1 - The Government's demanda were the lowest possible consistent with the safety of the empire. The prevlous bill had been before Parliament and the country$or nine , months I and : everybody understood what the Government wasted. It was. there 'needless to repeat the arguments tent had heretofore been advanced in favor ot the measure. -1 , - ' In the course of the 'speech the Chancellor referred to the action of Russia In increasing the peace footing of hSr army by 94.000 men since I889.and saiI she had not yet exhautted her resources. 1 Germany be declared must-Increase her peatae footing if her voice was to continue to have weight ItC the European areopaghtts. The assertion macie by the opposition that Germany did not have sufficient men to answer the can for recruits was disproved by the fact that 90,000 serviceable men had , not been i recruited. Be-. Jarring to the expense- that -, would t- be entailed by the granting of the Government's , demands, Chancellor Von - Caprivi- oald, that the new taxes that must necessarily be- lore led would be borne on strong shoulders. These taxes - 'would not - touch-- the - classes or the agricultural population. Ho could not now he added, dennitely state the tax plan. but It was the Government's tention to again Introduce the old financf al, proposals, and especially the - one providisig' for a tax on bourse transactions. ,- ' The , Chancellor briefly recapitulated tiro leading-features of the old measure. According to this bill the peace effect, excepting commissioned ,officers and non-commissional officers above the rank of corporal, was to have consisted of 492,068 men between Octobet 1. 1892, and March 31, 1893. The strengtn., of the varioua branches of the service during the period nfentioned was to have been lit' battalions of infantry'. 477 squadrons of airy. 494 batteries of field artillery. 37 battalions of toot artillery, 24 battalions of plo-e floors. 7 battalions of railway troops and 21 battalion. of the transport -- The i av-erage strength df - the standing army was talculated in accordance with the principle off two years' active service with the colors of; the infantry-- The increase involved the ex-, penditure of 66.800,000 marks in a lump Of this amount 61,000,000 was to have ' appeared in the budget for the financial years 1893-94. The annually recurring expenditure was fixed at 64,000,000 marks. - When the new system should have been fully developed I Germany would have in timee of war a trained army of 4,400.000 mein. - , -,, These- proposals of the Government. the Chancellor added, Old not meet with the ap-1 proval of the honse, and in attempting to so fix the measurotbat it would be acceptable to tile Reichstag the Government had accepted the suggestion of Freiherr von Fluent, and incorporated it in the bill, withdrawing its own demands on the points on which the compromise was effected- The saggestion of Frelnerr von Hueno was, as the House was aware, that the peace effective should be intreased by 60,-- 000 men at once.antl In the course of the next three-years shouldts raised gradually until70.000 men, practically the full number demanded. should be added to the standing army.. It was also suggested 'that , the sixty batteries of field artillery should have tour instead of six , guns each. ' The bill, as thus amended had been rejected, the Reichstag dissolved. new elections called. and now the Government submitted to the - new house a measure that in its details Irais Practical-1Y the old house compromise bill. - - - , - - Herr Payer, a member of the Volspartel, tot-, lowed the Chancellor. Herr Payer declared it was not true that the country had - pro-' flounced for, nor did a majority of the house support, the army bill. Such small majority as the Government might obtain would , only be secured through diplomacy-. - - Freiherr von Mantstillie. a Conservative and an active supporter of the Government. said he regretted that the Government had &ban-. doned its own bill for the linens compromise. It was impossible for Germany to be -too' strong. The riots in Paris. he added, furnished' striking proof of this assertion. - The mob now shook, and might possibly overthrow, the French Government, and establish a regime-that might seek ettength through foreign di- Herr Liebkneeht the well-thown- Social-Democratic leader, said the Government did not want an increased army because it feared France or Russia, but because it desired to fortify-itself against the German people. , This assertion was greeted with cries: of "Shame!" "Shame!" , 1 . -I The Paris Blots. r Pant July 7.--The city is again, quiet to, day, but it is ' brooding quietness ' that augurs M for order when darlim' ess- sett 1n.- The troubles that lied their origin- In a freak of students In the Latin 'Quarter have ' trown'4--- and - spread.' and., the situation now promises to become critleaL Only the administration of the law with a strong hand will prevent general trouble, but It can be said that the Government is tally alive to the condition that con-trouts it and is prepared for almost- a4y, contingency that may arise. , 1 The leaders of the workingmen. not only la Paris but in the provinces, many of whom are , Socialists, are ever ready ' to take advantage of any occasiOa to make - a demonstration against the Government and they have not been slow to grasp the present opportun-. Ity to make trouble. Therein lies the danger. A simple students' row could' easily be quelled, but now tbe students disavow any connection with the disorders . and their 'association has , appealed to them , to not take any part in any -- of ,-- the rioting. The workingmen have now become- Incensed against the police, and propose to show their indignation against them and their Waspproval of' the 'Government by Inaugurating a general -strike. An appeal ,signed -1 by the delegates of 167 trades' - syndicates was issued to-day in Paris and the provinces, requesting the 'workingmen to quit work. The troubles between- the Government and strikers at Carmaoux and other places' are still too fresh In the public mind to allow of the prospect of - a general - strike ' end-its attendant disorders being viewed with an degree of equanimity. The tension between the Paris Municipal Council.- 'some of whose members are avowedly Socialists and ' the Government, shows no signs onessening.The Council held a meeting to-day at which the situation-in the city was discussed. Several members made speeches in , which they violently denounced the ' Government ' for supporting the pollee ''--- in - what. - was termed, their high-banded an reckless disregard Lot - the law.
