Auto Fees Cut In Two And 4c Gas Tax Passed Continued for 24 Hours and Reached Height in Last Few Hours. FRIDAY'S STORM BRIEF Wind Velocity Probably as Great but Duration Com- paratively Sliorl. OJd timers disagree as to wheth- er Friday's hurricane was us severe as the sturm of 1SSU, which caused the abandonment of indianola, once important Texas port. All atfrce however, that the recent storm was the severest since that of 1SSG. The iSSG storm blew as a steady Knlu for 2-1 hours and reached its height between six and o'clock in the morning, subsiding about two hours Inter, while last Friday's storm lasted only, three and a halt hours, beginning at five o'clock in the evening and continuing until o'clock. While there may not have been much difference in Ihu maximum velocity of the two .storms, the ISSli storm did much more damage in Victoria and resulted in many moro casualties, due to Hie fact that Hie continuous gale for so many hours loosened many structures before the storm leached its height. Fur- thermore, the buildings in those (lays were not as substantial as they are today. lie-ports of the damage done by Friday's storm continue In he re- ceived from outlying sections, At Fannin, (iuliail Comity, the large stone monument in Ihu Fannin Bat- tlefield 1'aik was blown ilmvu and the Methodist (Jliurch lifted from its foundation, and at Cologne, Co- liail County, the Southern Pacific depot wrecked.
