LIVERY and FEED CHICAGO, April a.—A terrific wind and thunder storm passed over the city at 6 p.m., wrecking buildings and demolishing outhouses and prostrating telegraph -wires. The seven-story brick building at 14 and 16 Pierce street, on the West Side, was struck by the wind and crushed like an eggshell. The building was surrounded by one and two-story buildings, the homes of laboring men, which were also wrecked, killing and injuring the occupants. The killed are as follows: DAVID HULET, 6 months old. HOKACE MOTT, 5 years old. EDDIE MOTT, 2 years old. MRS. ELIZA ALLEN. Mns. J. L. GOWAS. WILLIAM GOWAK, 3 years old. MAHY GOWAK. 4 years old. MARY WAL»H, SO years old. A niece of Mrs. Gowan is missing. The Injured Are: James Gowan, 30 years old; may live, Alice Hewlett, cannot live. Mrs. Ada Keowen, will die. James Mott, will die. Mrs. James Mott, will die. Jane Mott, 12 years old; may die. Mamie Mott, 10 years old, will probably die Hoi-ace Wygant, will die. , . v ...... Horace Wygaut, infant; will die. Mrs. Ella Gleason, slightly injured. Mrs. Kate O'Shaunessy, slightly cut. Mark Soavey, cut about the head by falling debris. There were several others who were slightly injured. The towns of Ban^n and f-janta An?a in Texas were heavily visited. Three persons lost their lives and ten were injured at the former place, while at the latter thirteen were injured and one death occurred. Little has been heard from the interior of the state and grave apprehension is felt as to the condition of affairs in cattle districts toward the Indian terriorry where the storm rased in its greatest fury. Iowa .Suffers Heavily. Throughout Iowa a hurricane prevailed a greater part of Friday and Fitfdjay night, and although so far as heard from there was no loss of life, the property damage will probably be Mpprthan in any other state. At _0tfjMoines, Boone, Stnart, Mount Ayr, Ottniinwa, Muscatine, Marshalltown, Dubnque aod many other places, buildings were unroofed, windows smashed, trees uprooted and liver crafts sunk by the gale. At Des Moinea the damage •yrill be upwards of $100,000. A passenger train, running at full speed was blown from the track near Burlington and four passengers injured.

Missouri Got Off tlfently. Missouri seems to have been lightly visited, except on the western edge. Kansas City was roughly shaken up, and unroofed houses, uprooted trees and tangled telegraph wires bear testimony to the strength of the gale.

CHICAGO, April 2.—Reports of the storm show it to have been ^the most general aa to extent of territory for many years. The states of Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Texas and Indiana were •wept by a furious storm of wind, raiu and hail, in some places rising to the force of a tornado, and nowhere falling below the danger line of velocity. Owing to the general prostration of telegraph lines the fall extent of the loss of life and property will not be known for several days to come, but the facts at hand show the known fatalities to reach thirty-one, while the list of the injured numbers 105. Of the latter class a large proportion will be added to the death roll, aa the injuries in many cases are so serious as to render them probably fatal. The loss in the way of property—buildings, etock, fences, etc.—cannot as yet be even surmised bat there can be no doubt that -when all the reports are in the figures will reach high up into the million?. In tbe Oyoloo* State. Kansas, the "clyclone state," leads in the list in the matter of fatalities. The storm scourged that commonwealth iu all its length and breadth. It is known that eighteen persons lost their lives and that fifty-seven were injured. These figures are based on authentic reports. What the addition will be when new comes from outlying counties anc districts remote from railroads and telegraph — communities with which no communication has yet been had—is a matter for conjecture. Cer tainly, judging from the facts at hand it is to be feared that the list win a least be doubled, and it would not be surprising if the figures should run even higher. Towanda was the heaviest sufferer. There were six persons killed and twenty-three injured. Wellington follows with five killed and sixteen injured. Then comes Augusta with five killed and seven injured—all fatally; South Haven with two killed and two injured, and Salina winh seven injured. Reports of loss of life and injury come from Eldorado, Strong City, Kiowa and other points, but as they are unaccompanied by names or particulars they are not included in the foregoing statement. AU Kansas suffered from the cyclone; nearly every county was affected.' Partioujwly in the southern t waj the damage severe. Sedgwick, an and Butler counties suffered siderable damage there were no casualties and the gross loss will not be heavy. In Illinois the rain, wind and hail were heavy, but only in Chicago and its suburbs, so far as heard, was there any loss of life. The fall of a huge seven- story burick building in Pearce street, which crushed an adjoining cottage, is responsible for the death of eight persons and the injury of a dozen others. In the suburbs-of Q-rand Crossing four persons were injured by the collapse of a house, and at Woodlawn, four others •were hurt in a similar manner. East of this city the storm seems to have lost its force, and although heavy rains and accompanying high winds are reported rom Indiana and points along the lakes, ;here was no loss of life and little damage to property. THE DEATH LIST. Mambar of Killed la th» Kao«iM Cyclone Orer Fifty. KANSAS CITY, Mo., April .—With the going down of the wind the telegraph is again brought into service and She storm stricken district of Kansas beard from. The wire service is still very slow, but there is enough coming in to show that the terrible work was far reaching and very destructive. A careful estimate regarding the number of killed and wounded throughout the state, the result of the wind's havoc makes it nearly one hundred killed and between two and three hundred injured. In addition to this principal storm, there was a second of less intensity, which went across the eastern part of the state, not taking so many lives but doing fearful damage to crops, trees and farm buildings. The following is the estimate placed on the dead and wounded as near as can be ascertained at this time: Towanda—Nine. Bosehill—Two. Wanego—Eight. Strong City—Nina. Torna—Five. Smolan—One. Vint Creek—One, South Haven—Nine. Louisville—One. Augusta—Three. These towns are the only ones from which anything like a definite report has been obtained, and the possibility is that when the western towns and villages are heard from the dead list will be swelled to nearly one hundred.
