was blown from a scaffold of a build-

Hulett lived immediately in the rear
of the ruined seven-story
building. He and his family

that it will be passed lsterin the week.
It is desired to pass Mr. Springer’s
plaster, composing the large building
foil. Its force seemed to be directed
towhrda the rear immediately towards
the Huiett residence. A passerby, as
soon as the accident occurred, turned
in the tire alarm and police and ambul-
ance calls. Citizens who heard the
cra'h and cries of the injured also
rushed to the scene and tno work of
rescuing them at once began. The
dead and injured were at once removed
to residences near by. The Hulett
family occupied only one side of their
dwelling and on this the ruined build-
ing desponded like an avalanche. The
six months old baby of Mrs. Hulett
wap crushed into a shapeless mass. Of
13 people seated at the table, the in-
fant was the only one killed. Those
pinioned under the broken timbers and
bricks were soon released by hundreds
of willing firemen, police and citizens
wiitf rushed to the rescue. A nnmber
of physicians were soon at the
scene of the disaster to care for the
woimded as fast as they were removed.
The following are known to be buried
in,the ruins of the Gowan house and
undoubtedly dead- Mrs. S. Brown,
Wm. Gowan, Wm. Walsh, Samuel Vis-
dale of Joliet, Ills. In two of the de-
molished house? upset stoves set fire to
t]he ruins, but before serious damage
was done the flames were extinguished.
At No. 1.0 Pearce street, the wife, 0
yearold daughter Lizzie and 80 year old
father-iu-iaw and Miss Lodera Each
were making a call on the family at
the time of the accident. When the
place at No. 12 Pearce street was struck
it was thrown against Allen’s house,
a marble slab pinned the 80 year old
man to the floor. Mrs. Allen and
daughter were released by firemen,
Miss Rach was pinned to the floor by
the mantel piece. When she succeed-

was so dense that she could see noth-

persons killed is the dreadful record
of Thursday night’s cyclone in this vi-
cinity. The dead are:. Mrs. Albert
Eggers and two children, aged 3 and 5
years; J. Johnson, laborer on the Eg-
gers farm; Charles Taylor, wife and
9-year-old child. The house of Albert
Taylor was completely demolished and
Was scattered about broadcast over his
farm. Mrs. Eggers was found dead

ber younger child. The body of the
elder child Was founds some distance
from those of its mother and brother.
The faces of all had the appearance

was found about midnight wandering
about his ffarm. He was in a dazed
condition And has sustained a fracture
of the right arm and other bad bruises.
His injuries may result fatally. His
ipiod now appears to be completely
lost, the result of learning the dread-
ful fate of his wife and children. The
house of John Taylor was moved some
distance from its foundation and was
then crasued to tho ground with terri-
ble force wrecking it completely. Tap
lor’s body was found among the debris
crushed and mangled beyond
recognition. His nine year old
child met death in the
ruins, its body being found near that
of its father. Mrs. Taylor was rescued
froto the ruins in an unconscious con-
dition. She cannot recover. The house
of J, T. Genus, occupied by John
Fullmo.e, was twisted out of shape and
almost completely wrecked. Fullmor’s
wife and mother were terribly iuj ired.
They will probably recover. Other
houses in this vicinity were badly
damaged by the storm. No other fa
tajfites have beeu reported.
Want* China to Retaliate.
New York, April 2.—The Evening
Telegram states that the Chinese resi-
dents of this country have for some
time been circulating a petition among
their countrymen praying the emperor
of the flowery kingdom to retaliate on
the United States, and that the peti-
tion has already received 400,000 signa
aures. The petition states that the ce-
lestials in this country are to experi-
ence even grea er hardships in the
future than they now endure, and ac-
cuse the United States of breaking
faith, The blame for this is laid on
emflilgrants from Europe and not on
the native population. .■*
