ST. I(ris. Mayli'i. Althouuh thousands
of men have been at work nia't- 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 tlie rinci)al thorouh
fares. it is true, but for the most part the
streets are still choked, with I ho battered
remains of home; and factories, hospitals
and churche--. 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 lo
cated. Taking a zitrza; course it extends
down through where the densely popu
lated tenement houses are located, fully
six miles, and crosses the river.
The number of families left homeless by
the devastation nhmu: the path of ihe-iorm
each tin into the thom-ands. In many
tliese imbaaunates h.aveio-r ail
their worldly pos-eesions. Mr ivy wail for
days be (h'pene.enr on charitv and their
more mrtunate neb -hboi'S for sholder. Tills
has made it n eeessary for the mayor of Fast
St. Louis to make eat appeal for aid.
There exists a!) ut as much uncertainty
as to the actual mimli'T of people killed
and the amount of r perty damaged as
on the first morniirzof thi' disaster. Scores
of dead have been identified, but no one is
willing to venture a .ruess as to how many
bodies mav be in the ruins of the hundreds
of buildin-s as ye: unexplored.
Corrected reports from various sources
alom: the river front materially reduce the
estimate of the loss by drowning. How
manv roustabouts went down will proba
bly never be known, as they are generally
of a class in whose welfare there is little
interest, most of them beinpr nero no
mads who move from one port to another.
The destitution, misery and want here
has touched the hearts of the people in :dl
parts of the country, --ml as a result, ever
since the storm of Wednesday offers of
help and contributions have been pouring
in. Up to a late hour $45,000 was the
total amount of donations received.

delegate for every T.Ooo votes, with one
additional delegate for a fraction exceeding
