THE STUKM'8 WAKE GREAT HAVOC WROUGHT IN SOUTHERN MINNESOTA. Tho Number of IV-iillis >•»«• Thought to llo About Tivcnt;r—r.oss of I'roju-Hy In Koot Uivci- Valley Ki;Um:ttr<l ut :i Million Dollars. MA.vKA.Tf.), Minn., June 17. — The streets of Minnesota; and V.'i'lls are filled with lamentations of tln> '•im-i>v.:id- .ut farmer.-;, who have lost all except their hare land ;>,nd growing crops. The storm was midonbtedly (lie most severe that ever visitoil thn state, and it:- path extends for eighty-five miles, from Sher- burno to New Richmond, yet its width is not over. fifty yards. Hundreds saw the huge fvuniel-phapcd monster as it sped twisting over the prairie, now in the air and now crushing some Imilding to splinters, and some few sought safety in cellars. Several owe their lives to this thoughtfulness. Accompanying the black, rolihi;;;- cloud of vapor, and fragments of buildings was an awful roaring sound. The path or' the storm can be distinguished for miles in either direction by the destruction which it wrought i farmers' wind brakes, the trees left standing bei.ig leaflet and broken. It is a mystery where fragments of house.! went to. Pieces of broken furniture from one ho,.so was traced for two and a half miles. The dead at Minnesota Lake are: MRS. JOHN LATUSIC. JOHN BRWCN. JOHN PIKTIIUS. Two dftugb f ers of CinsTiAN M-LCHEHT. MBS. JOHN DELLAT. Miss MARY SHOWN. Mrs. John Brown was fatally injured, Mrs. Gray suffered a dislocated shoulder and broken hand, Mrs. Craychee was severely injured and Miss Agries Murry, school teacher, was badly injured. A great deal of destruction was wrought near Wells and the town had a narrow escape, as a portion of the cyclone passed only half a mile away. Herman Beamer was killed, his body being found under his .wrecked house. Two sons of Albert Klingbert were badly injured, one receiving a terrible scalp woiind and the other a broken leg. Besides the death of Charles Melchert's two daughters, his son suffered a broken leg. A child was killed near Eaton and it is believed that several other deaths occurred in that direction. The huge funnel then passed on toward New Richland, where two persons were killed and five at Hartland. Full reports from that neighborhood are not to be had, but it is rumored that several more lives were lost. Five miles from Wells four horses belonging to August Honz'j were killed. Immense quantities of water fell for several miles about Mapleton, it amounting almost to a cloudburst. Whole fields are under water, and Such a flood was never before known. Everything is overflowing. DAMAGE BY FLOOD. A Million Dollui-H* Loss in tlie Koot River Valley. HOKAH, Minn., June 17.—People living in the Root river valley along the Southern Minnesota road, have been forced to see\ protection on the hills from the heaviest flood ever known in Southern Minnesota. For seventy-five miles the valley is flooded from hill to hill. The loss, roughly estimated, will reach $1,000 100. All trains aro abandoned, factories closed down and business virtually suspended. FAL3E WORK FcLL. Twenty-five Deaths Caused by the Wreck of a Kentucky I'riclge. CINCINNATI, Jxtne 15.—One of the most fearful accidents in the history of this vicinity Avas that of the fall of the bridge which was i?i the course of construction over the Licking river between Covington and Newport, Ky. Sixty-three workmen were on the structure. Not more than half a dozen escaped unhurt. The others were cither killed by the crushing of the iron and timbers or were drowned in the water. The cause is surmised to be the weakening of the wooden false work. The river had washed out the earth about the supports, and it is said that a day or two ago one of the contractors said that he was afraid the structure would not stand under the weight of the heavy material. But still they kept at work. At least twenty-five of the unfortunate workmen were instantly killed and over a dozen injured. ELI T. STACKHOUSE. A Suutli Carolina Member of Congress Dint .Suddenly. WASHINGTON, June 14.— Representative Eli T. Std,ckhouse, of the Sixth district of South Carolina, died suddenly at Ms residence in this city shortly after 2 o'clock a. in. of heart disease. Mr. Stackhouse was born in Marion county, S. C., in 1824. He served in the Confederate urmy and became a colonel. He afterward became prominent in agricultural pursuits, was president of the state Farmers' Alliance, was a member of the legislature and. was elected to the Fifty-second congress as a Democrat. ruggist lot free bottle Dr. JliKw' Jfwrte*.

Mr. Elaine proceeded with his remarks and reiterated what had already been said, adding with emphasis that the state department was able to take care of all the busineea' belonging to it without advice or interfrence from aiiy one occupying a subordinate position in it. Thereupon Mr. Foster said lie knew Mr. Elaine was not presenting the views of the president and proceeded to state them by his direction and in his name. "Gentlenu i," said the secretary, "thin conference is at an end," and he quickly loft the room, penning his resignation while his indignation was at its height. Mr. Foster assured the Canadians that Mr. Elaine's action would not make the slightest difference in the object of their visit and that, they could return to Ottawa at once and resume the discussion by correspondence. They accordingly left on the 4 o'clock train. There were other causes which Mr. Elaine thought were intended to make his stay in the department disagreeable, but after the humiliation in the presence of the Canadian officials he said he could not" retiriYr^bfrtCa. another- moment, and for that reason the exact time, 11:45 a. m., was written on the letter that it might hereafter appear that between the record of the adjournment of the conference and his resignation there was but a very brief space of time. Kxplains tho Concluding Sentence. This statement now explains the concluding sentence of Mr. Elaine's resignation: "Tho condiuon of public business in the department of state justifies me in requesting that my resignation may be accepted immediately." In other words, Mr, Elaine construed Mr. Foster's statement as an announcement that i.e and not Mr. Bhiuo was tho present representative in tin") stat'-> department, and that his cffidal rights and faculties as the \ 'resident's mouthpiece had been suspended. EMMONS BLA1NE DEAD. Tin- KHlest laying Son of tli- Ex-Secretary Dies Sutlilenly nt Clih:ag:i. CHICAGO, June 18.— Ennnons Elaine, the second son of Jame.s G. Elaine, ex- secretary of state, died at 11:13 o'clock a. m., at the McCormick mansion, No. IS.j Rush street. He had been ill but a few hours and his death was wholly unexpected. Septicaemia, which developed late in the night from a bowel complaint, was the immediate cause of death. Mrs. Emmons Elaine and her son McCormick Elaine, two years old, and Mrs. Cyrus McCormick, were the only members of the family at the bedside when Mr. Elaine passed away. Death came so swiftly that there was not time to summon the other members of tho McCormick family, Mr. and Mrs. W. G. McCormick, who were in the honse at the time. Mr. Elaine's death is due indirectly, no the ordeal he p. .seed through as tho chief director of the interests of his father at the Minneapolis convention. He labored incessantly for several days previous to the opening of the convention throughout its se^ion, nor did he relinquish his labors until after the nomination of Mr. Harrison. Emmons Blaine, at the time of his death, was vice president of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad and until quite recently resided at Baltimore, coming to Chicago to take charge of the Western interests of the company. His wedding in New York state to Miss Anita McCormick, daughter of the great reaper manufacturer, was a social event of the first magnitude. The have had only one child, the infant who was at the bedside when the father died. Before being connected with the Baltimore and Ohio, which company he served in less conspicuous places than the vice presidency, Mr. Blaine was at different times in the service of the West Virginia Central, the Chicago and Northwestern and the Atchisoo, Topek.ft and Santa Fe. .. i» _«,5- ,'•' Removed to the Rink.
