A telegram received at the general offices of the Kansas City, Fort Sco: t and Memphis railway this morning from ils Memphis representative says that 111 lives were-lost in last evening's tornado at and near La Grange, Tenn., and that property damage to the amount of. nearly $40,000 was done at that place. The telegram follows: "A heavy rain storm passed over Memphis yesterday evening about dark. Two and eighty-fi'.-e hundredths inches of water fell from 7 o'clock yesterday morning until midnight last night at Memphis, and for 40 or 50 miles east. "A terrific wind storm struck La Grange, Tenn., a point 4!J miles east of Memphis, on the Southern railway and destroyed property to an estimated value of $25,000 or $40,000 and caused ID deaths at ihat place and vicinity, according to the ibest information no-.v obtainable. "So far as have been able to learn, there Is no damage at any of the stations along our line, though the storm seems to have circled around Memphis, beginning at, Lula, Miss., a point .jfl miles south of Memphis on the Yazzoo end Mississippi Valley and through Batesville, Miss., a point on the Illinois Central railway about 60 miles south of Memphis, to the northeast through La Grange." telegraphic and telephonic communication that neither the origin nor the ending of it can be determined at present, nor can the extent of the disaster bj learned.

HEIGHT OF SEVERITY TENNESSEE AND NORTH MISSISSIPPI GET IT. Louisville, Ky., Nov. 21. Telegraph and telephone communication in the path of last night's storm is still interrupted, and although every effort is being made to reach the scene of devastation from various points, no definite information has been received as to the loss of life or the extent of the damage. The storm is .believed to have reached the height -of its severity in the middle and western parts of Tennessee and northern Mississippi, as no reports of damage elsewhere have reached this city. At Columbia, according to a message by telephone, the loss of life was 14. The list as reported Is: MTSS FLORENCE FA R ft ELI MISS EVELYN FAKRKLL. CAI'T. A. F. AYDELOTTE. .MRS. A. F. AYDELOTTE.

In Nashville the rainfall for 21 hours was fi.()2 inches, an abnormally Iarg precipitation. .Memphis reports 2.4.-4 inches. I lie wires are blown down in all directions, and the telegraph companies arc badly handicapped. New York, Nov. .. Maj. Gen. Fitz-hugh Lee, who has just returned from Havana having appointed to the command of the department of Missouri, had little to say about Cuba. He has now 'severed all connection wiwth the island, after an intimate association with its affairs for nearly live years, except for a brief period during the war. "The constitutional convention is in session to organize a free and independ ent governim nl for the Cubans," he said. "Thus far it has not made much pi egress. It is a small convention, only 31. delegates, all Cubans. "Some pro veterans of th" Spanish war. They have about disposed of one or two contests over senis, - od are nearly ready to begin with teal business. "How long It will take l!ie convention to adopt a constitution is rroble-matical. Nobody knows what the outcome will be. Until this Is settled, there is little to say of the futu.v of the Island." When the general was asked vbnt hp thought of the recent elect! in and its results In the island, he ii'iiHol: "Oh, they don't think much about our elections down there." He did not express his own opinion. "I am going to be here for a few days," he added, "and I shall th n pio-cced to Washington to make my report. From there I go to Richmond for a short stay. I expect to re ah Omaha and establish my headquarters about the first of next month." With Gen. Lee are Maj. R. E. Michlo and Cant. W. H. Hart, members of his staff, and W. P. Pedego, lis private secretary. Maj. Michie, who was his adjutant general when he commanded the 7th army corps during the Spunhh-American war. will conlinnn ,, 'm'd the same position on his staff in Omaha.

Olin Castle last June by cutting her throat with a razor, was called for trial here today. The case is one of the most remarkable in the history of Kansas crimes and promises to be a legal battle, euii lient altorneys having been engaged on each side. Miss Morrison's alleged motive for th murder was Jealousy, she having been a former sweetheart of Oas(.le, who is a elerk In a local Racket store. .Miss Morrison, who is 2fi years old, Is daughter of Former Probate Judge M. II. Morrison. Mrs. Caslle, who was a Miss Mary Wiley, was the same age as her alleged murderer, and her family also Is well-to-do. Uefore she died Mrs. Castle made a statement in which she declared that Miss Morrison had attacked her wllh-ou! provocation. Miss Morrison will plead self defense, alleging that Mrs. Castle attacked her llrsl with a razor, which she finally wrenched from the married woman and used to protect herself. A r uie preliminary hearing last summer Miss Morrison was held without b ill. Much of her time in Jail has been spent In reading (he I'.lhle. Late yesterday aflernoon atlorifys for the defense entered a plea of abatement, alleging that the defendant had never had n proper preliminary hearicg. and asking that the plea be tried before a Jury. This was the (list thing to he taken up when court opened this morning. Jessie Morrison was taken Into court yesterday afternoon to hear the plea of her attorneys. She was taken from her cell nt the county Jail by Sheriff Turner, but ho dil not accompany her directly In the court room. Iler father, ex-Judge Morrison, war; allowed to lake his daughter into the court room, and he sat beside her during the healing. She was tin ssed In hl.ick. Once in Ihe court room she did not show any sign of emotion, but sniib'l pleasantly lo her friends, and innoied those who were prosecuting her. Iler iilloriieys are J. L. Reoder of To-peka, Kramer of Eldorado, II. VV. Shoemacker and V. P. SfOoney. J. W. Shinn of Eureka is trying th case. County Attorney Rrumback la prosecuting Miss .Morrison and he will be assisted by several other attorneys. Miss Morrison's attorneys entered a plea of abatement in width they asked for a Jury trial. They alleged that the other preliminary trials were not Just toward Miss Morrison, and Judge Shinn took the plea under advisement until today. Great crowds gathered around tha court house today when she was brought In for trial. When Judge C. W. Shinn announce! the case the court room was crowded wllh spectators. Among them were a dozen women, clerks in the store where Castle and Miss Morrison worked, or neighbors of the dead woman and her husband. On the front seat sat Ju lge Morrison, the aged father of thealleged murderer, and hack of him, cromhing lOiV to escape the gaze of the curious, young Castle, for love of whom, the slate will contend, Miss Morrison killed his wife. Presently Judge Morrison left the room accompanied by the sheriff. A few minutes later the two men escorted Miss Morrison, slender and frail looking, to a seat beside the judge's desk. The prisoner was dressed plainly and 1iore a dejected appearance. She pat quietly through the proceedings, making no comment and hardly speaking a word. Her live months' confinement la the county jail had, apparently, chang ed ner completely. Yesterday Mlsss Morrison's attorneys filed a plea In abatement, asserting that the preliminary hearing had not beea regular and that the prisoner, therefore, could not be tried on the (barge of murder In the first decree. The slates attorney moved that the plea he amended, and usked that the case proceed, Considerable argument from counsel followed. Judge Shinn finally announcing that In? would pass upon the ues-tion at Ihe afternoon session, and a recess was taken, Difficiilly In securing a jury Is expected and It is not believed that t h-j taking of evidence will begin until late in the Week.
