Louis, May SO.—Although several days hare passed since the tornado tore its way through this city, there still exists about as much uncertainty as to the actual number of people killed and the amount of property damaged as on the first morning after the disaster. Scores of dead have been identified, but no one is willing to venture a guess as to how many bodies may be in the ruins of the hundreds of buildings as yet unexplored. The total number of dead in St. Louis identified is 162, and in East St. Louis 127. In St. Louis there are 52 bodies still unidentified, and in East St. Louis 2. It is believed that the deaths of the injtired and the future recovery of bodies will bring the St. Louis death list well up to 200. In East St, Louis the city officials declared that they have hopes that the death roll on that side of the river will not exceed 150, but the ruins upon which the rescuers have not yet begun work may swell the totals far beyond that figure. Guessing at the Property Loss. Many guesses are being made itpon the property loss, and they range from $20,000,000 to $50,000,000. The most popular estimate is in the neighborhood of $25,000,000 for both cities. The contractors of the city have been overwhelmed with orders for rebuilding, and the work of wiping out the havoc of the storm will be pushed with all energy. Although thousands of men have been at work night and day clearing away the wreckage in the path of the tornado, they have scarcely made a perceptible impression towards restoring the chaotic confusion to anything like order. Passageways have been made through some of the principal thoroughfares, it is true, but for the most part .the streets are still choked with the Battered Remains of Homes and Factories, hospitals and clrurches. The path of the storm, is fully a mile and a half wide. It starts away out in the suburbs of the city, where beautiful homes of people of wealth are located. Taking a zig-zag course it extends down through where the densely populated tenement houses are located, fully six miles, aud crosses the river. At the extreme limits of the city to the west is a quarter known as Tower Grove Park. It is populated by people of wealth and the houses are palatial, with beautiful grounds and surroundings. To the southeast of this is another region of wealth. The storm mowed its way through them both. Magnificent residences in both places were Wiped Ofl' the Face of the Earth in some cases, while iu others roofs were carried away, trees torn from their roots and all the picturesque beauty destroyed. From the corner of St. Vincent and California avenues away to the northeast as far as the eye can reach is a stretch of devastation and ruin. The Christian clrarch at this corner was an almost imrecognizable pile of bricks, mortar and timbers. The Chouteau school, half a mile north, was eo badly damaged that it will probably have to be rebuilt, while nearly every dwelling intervening Was Unroofed or Demolished. At California aud Russell avenues the houses at the northeast corner are in ruins, while those on the opposite corner were scarcely damaged. Looking from this point towards the business center of the city as far as can be seen we wrecks of homes. Lafayette park, one of the most attractive public pleasure grounds in the city, has not a single tree left standing. It resembles a thicket of underbrush with the trunks of great trees twisted and torn, scattered throughout. The Lafayette Methodist church, facing the park, is in ruins, as is nearly every beautiful house in this vicinity. North from Lafayette park on Mississippi avenue are the ruins of Schneider's beer garden. Nearly every house on the east side of this street for a mile or more is Either Blown Down or Badly Damaged. Brown's tobacco factory, a 6-story structure at Eighteenth street and Chouteau dvenue, was almost wholly demolished, and to the north of it is what remains of Evans Bros.' tobacco warehouse. A short distance south of Chouteau avenue on Seventeenth street is the Fulton Grammar school, or the ruin of it. From here can be seen the remains of the city hospital. This structure has been damaged to the extent of over 1200,000. Devastation and ruin is seen on every side frow the hospital. At Fourth j||Ld Spnlard streets the mf to th« _ swefrt aeafly etsif thlfig teteri for **rt dr flifee MlUt f>oai the ritef to Fourth Street. the Important etrftctut&s to fall were the roof and part of the \vall6 of the Saxony flour mill, the Souths*ft white lead works, Plant's mill and elevators, the St. Louis Foundry and Machine company's works, all of which were more or less seriously damaged. The number of families left homeless by the devestation along the path of the storm will reach tip into the thousands. In many instances these Unfortunates have lost all their worldly possessions. Many will for days be dependent on charity and their more fortunate neighbors for shelter. thirteen Killed tteaf Vandnlla. VANDALJA, Ills., May 29.—-News has reached here that a cyclone swept over Irvington and Richview, south of here on the Illinois Central road, destroying everything in its path and killing outright 18 persons. Worst Cyclone Officially Knoxvn. WASHINGTON, May 80.—Weather bureau officials say the St. Louis tornado was the most fatally destructive in the history of the office. This official statement was made at the bureau. THE IOWA STORM. Fatalities Probably Amount to Over Fifty. DES MOINES, May 27.—Over fifty killed, a score fatally injured and about 50 people less seriously hurt is, as near as can be estimated, the result of the destructive tornado which swept portions of Iowa, Illinois and Kansas Sunday night. Six towns were partially destroyed. They are Bondurant, Val ria and Mingo, on the line of the Chknyo Great Western from Des Moines, nnd Ankeny, Polk City and Slater, on another branch of the same road running north from Des Moiues. Bonduraut, Ankeny and Polk City are iu Polk county, Valeria is on the line between Polk and Jasper counties, Mingo is in Jasper county and Slater is in the southwestern corner of Story county. The property loss is heavy, but accurate estimates are, thus far, an impossibility. The list of killed stands as follows: Jasper county, la 10 Polk county, la 9 Bockford,Ills 4 Elgin, Ills 1 North McGregor, la 25 Durango, la 5 Fort Scott, Kan 3 MAWPlSf6 86Aff IftS PAKB5N WitH A PBt£ HAN5, Mottdfty, Sfo? **, ttttfi* DROPPED TO DEATH. Terrible Accident at Victoria, B.C., Caused by a Bridge Collapsing. VICTORIA, B. C., May 28.—A terrible accident occurred here during the day. A sham fight and review was to take place at Macauley point, near Esqui- mault, and crowds were making their way there by every route. All the train cars were packed. Two cars left Government street with more than 100 people on board. The first got over Point Ellice bridge safely, but when the other was about half way over the middle span of the • bridge, about 150 feet in length, gave way, and the car plunged into the water some 100 feet below. The oar was completely submerged and all on board were drowned, with the exception of some of those who were standing on the platform and who, escaping injury from falling timbers, managed to save themselves by using the floating ruins of the bridge and thus got ashore. SEATTLE, Wash., May 28.—A Victoria special to The Post-Intelligencer says: Fifty-three bodies have been recovered from the Point Ellice bridge wreck and there are known to be three more bodies beneath the mass of timbers and iron work, MICHIGAN DEATH ROLL. Arrears of TA*aii<m Remitted afid dredft of Sentence* Commuted— Ceremonies Mark the Coronation E*cf - clscg At Moscow. Moscow, May 2 1 ?,— The czar's ttiani* f esto, issued upon the ' occasion of his coronation, remits all arfeills of ta*a- tioaift European Russia aii'rl Poland, reduces the laud tax by oiie'half for 10 years and remits and reduces all fines, quashes all petty convictions involving imprisonment or fines up to 800 roubles, With the exception of persons sentenced for robbery, embezzlement, usury, fraudulent bankruptcy or offenses against honor.

Exiled criminals have a third of Their Sentences Remitted, life sentences nre Commuted to 20 years and many other punishments are light* ened. Regarding political prisoners, the minister of justice is authorized to grant, according to the nature of the offense, remissions of punishment in addition to those in the general amnesty, and advise the czar to restore civil rights to those who have led blame- ,ess lives since they have completed their banishment, and to reconsider the nses of those punished summarjly, who, by their subsequent behavior, nerit indulgence. Political refugees ;-re accorded immunity from prosecution, provided 16 years have elapsed since their offense. THE CORONATION. Czar and Czarina Crowned With Imposing Ceremonies at Moscow. Moscow, May 27.— The crowning of his majesty, the Emperor Nicholas Alex- androvitch, autocrat of all the Russias, and her majesty, the Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, occurred in the cathedral of Assumption and was attended with the utmost ceremony and in accordance with all the religious forms and ancient rites. The coronation was attended by representatives of nearly every nation on earth. In addition to Minister Breckinridge the United States was represented by General McCook, Admiral Selfridge and others. France was represented by General Deboisedeffre, Admiral Lamonix and several other officers. Prince and Princess Henry of Prussia and staff represented Germany. The Duke of Connaught and General Sir Francis Grenfel represented England. Italy was represented by the crown prince. Li Hung Chang appeared for China and Marshal Yamagata for Japan. Portugal sent the Duke of Qperto. Sweden, Norway, Greece, Denmark, Austria-Hungary and Persia were also represented, and countless Asiatic princes were in attendance. BASIS OF REPRESENTATION. Verified Total of Forty-three Has Been Keported, OXFORD, Mich., May 28.—From reports that continue to come in from adjacent points, the full force of the fierce wind that swept this part of Oakland county is beginning to be appreciated. The death roll in this vicinity may run to the hundred mark, for many homes that were on the edge of the cyclone suffered from its fury. At Oakwood, a hamlet 50 miles north of Oxford, having a population of about 200, not a house is left standing. The two churches are flattened to the earth. Forty-three are known to have been killed iu this vicinity. THE RUSSIAN HORROR. Fatalities by the Catastrophe Near Moscow Increasing Every Hour, Moscow, June 1.—The disaster on the Khodijnskoje plain Saturday is constantly gaining in proportion as the investigations by the authorities continue, These are made under difficulties, as the recovery of the victims was conducted by hundreds of volunteers aud many were carried away before they were enumerated. Many additional deaths of the injured who were carried away are occurring, which are only added to the enumeration after some time. It is now said that the fatalities will amount to between 3,000 and 3,000, but it is impossible yet to ascertain accurately the extent of the disaster. An official statement places the number of dead recovered at 1,836, and the seriously or fatally injured at 286. EIGHTEEN DROWNED. Waters of Lost Creek Cause Disaster to Seneca, Mo. SENECA, Mo., June 1.—The scenes in and about the district of Seneca's awful flood disaster presented a picture of desolation. Seneca's principal business street is divided in two sections by the loss of the splendid iron bridge which spanned Lost creek. Searching parties are constantly beating either side of the street in search of missing persons who are evidently drowned. Of the i8 thought to be drowned 14 have been from the water* Republican Convention May Decide on a Change. WASHINGTON, June 1.—The question of the basis of representation in future conventions is again to be agitated at the Republican convention at St. Louis. At present the representation in both the Democratic aud Republican conventions is based upon th.e congressional representation from each state, no account being taken of the party vote in the states. The scheme of basing the representation in Republican conventions on the Repiiblican vote in each state was brought before the convention in 1884, by General Ewing of Pennsylvania, who proposed that the representation be based upon the Republican vote cast in each district. It was bitterly opposed by the Southern delegates, led by ex-Congressman Lynch of Mississippi, who claimed that the proposed change was unfair because the Republican vote in the South was suppressed. In 1893 the Southern vote was a potent factor in determining the result, and in the succeeding summer N. B. Scott, the West Virginia member of the national committee, at a meeting of the committee offered a resolution to provide representation on the basis of one delegate for each 7,000 Republican votes by congressional districts. Action on tho resolution was not taken. The matter will again be brought to the attention of the committee by Mr. Scott when it meets in St. Louis June 8. The Bermuda at Philadelphia. PHILADELPHIA, June .1.—The steamer Bermuda which left Jacksonville, Fla., on April 27 with the alleged intention of landing a cargo of ammunition and a/ body of men on the shore of Cuba, arrived at this port today with a cargo of fruit.

Roger Ryan, vicar general of the Catholic diocese of Dubuque, was Sunday invested with the purple robes of a domestic prelate of the papal household and the title naonsignor.

Francis Hermanns has been located. G. M. Nolan, au employe of the California Wine company, declares he met Hermanns in his recent travels, and was on a railroad train with him two days. ' From the description given, he is certain he has made no mistake in the man. Liabilities of 8150,000. MILWAUKEE, June 1.—The sheriff has attached the stock of J. E.
