Every ened to the refugees stack Phe min is were rising Eon it mined in torrents. The o fir a e that the rain Cut knife re in the Waters of the Gulf and Bay met. And by dark the entire City was submerged. The flooding of the electric Light Plant and the Gas Gas plants left the City in darkness. To in upon the streets was to court j death the wind Mas then at cyclonic a a Clorite roofs. Cisterns portions of j build inns. Telegraph poles and malls were falling and the noise of the mind and the pm Hing of the buildings were terrifying in the extreme the wind a a a a a a v a Lark until 1 4 o d it k sunday morning. Purine All this time the people of Gal Vest n were like rats in traps the higher portions of the City Mas four to fire feet under water while in the great majority of cases the streets were submerged to a depth of ten feet. To leave a House was to drown. To remain was to court death in the wre Kage such a night of agony has Seldom been equated. Without apparent reason the maters suddenly began to subside at 1 45 a. Within 20 minutes they Hall gone Down two feet and before Daylight the streets were practically freed of the flood Waters. In the meantime the wind had veered to the Southeast. Very i a escaped. Very few if any buildings escaped injury. There is hardly a habitable dry House in the City. When the people who had escaped death went out at Daylight to View the work of the tempest and the floods they saw the most horrible sights imaginable. In the three Block from Avenue n to Avenue 1�. In Tremont Street. 1 saw eight bodies. Four corpses Mere in one Yard. The whole of the business front for three mocks in from the Gulf was stripped of every vestige of habitation the dwellings. The great bathing establishments. The Olympia and every Structure having Bren either carried out to sea or its ruins piled in a Pyramid far into the town according to the vagaries of the tempest. The first hurried glance Over the City showed that the largest structures supposed to he the most substantially built suffer �1 the greatest. The orphans Home. Twenty first and Avenue m. Fell like a House of cards. How Many dead children and refugees Are in the ruins could not be ascertained. Of the sick in st. Mary a infirmary together with the attendants Only eight Are understood to have been saved. The old woman a Home on Rosenberg Avenue collapsed and the Rosenberg school House is a mass of wreckage. The rail High school is but an empty Wall crushed and broken. Every Church in the City with possibly one or two exceptions �3 in ruins. At the fort nearly All fhe soldiers Are reported dead they having been in temporary quarters which gave them no Protection against the tempest or the flood. At military Headquarters department of Texas at san Antonio the information is that of 120 men stationed at fort san Jacinto Galveston Only 15 est a pod. Further information is that the Captain in command is among the victims. Lieut. Col. C. S. Roberts adjutant general department of Texas. Is in Galveston on a tour of inspection. It is not known if he is among the Small number at the fort who escaped. No report has been received from the Catholic orphan Asylum Down the Island. But it seems impossible that it could have withstood the Hurri a. If it fell All the inmates were no doubt lost for there was no Aid within a mile. The Bay front from end to end is in ruins. Nothing but piling and the wreck of great warehouses remain. The elevators lost All their upper works., and their stocks Are damaged by water. A the life saving station at fort Point was carried away the Crew being swept across the Bay 14 Miles to Texas City. I saw capt. Haines and he told me his wife and one a Hild and one a it of the Crew were drowned enough wreck a ire to i �imii1<i n City. The Shore at Texas City contains enough wreckage to rebuild a City. Fight persons whom were swept across the Bay during the storm were picked up there alive. Five corpses were also picked up. There were three fatalities in Texas City. In addition to the Liv lira Calobr i7��apm. Many go ring were current of houses falling and inmates escaping. Clarence h. Muley editor of the Everling Tribune.

Of the family six out of seven Are reported dead. Of the Burnett family Only one �3 known to have been saved. The family of Stanley g. Spencer who met death in the Cotton Exchange i Saloon is re ported to be dead. Thirteen were killed in one building on eighth Street and Broadway.

The Mistrot House in the West end was turned into a Hospital. All of the regular hospitals of the City were unavailable. Of the new Southern Pacific works Little remains but the piling. Half a million feet of lumber was carried away and Engineer Buschke Saya As far As the company is concerned it might As Well Start Over again. Ocean Steamer str Niider a. Eight Ocean steamers were torn from their moorings and stranded in the Bay. The Kendall Castle was carried of or the Flats. Thirty third Street wharf to Texas City and lies in the wreckage of the Inman pier. The norwegian Steamer Geller is stranded Between Texas City and Virginia Point. An Ocean liner was swirled around through the West Bay crashed through the Bay Bridges and is now lying in a few feet of water near the wreckage of the Railroad Bridges. The steamship Taunton was carried across Pelican Point and is stranded about ten Miles up the East Bay. The Mallory Steamer Alamo was torn from her wharf and dashed upon Pelican Flats and against the Bow of the British Steamer red Cross which had previously been hurled there. The Stern of the Alamo is stove in and the Bow of the red Cross is crushed. Down the Channel to the jetties two other Ocean steamships lie grounded. Some schooners barges and smaller Craft Are strewn Bottom Side up along the slips of the piers. The teg Louise of the Houston direct navigation company is Ulso a wreck. It will take a week to tabulate the dead and the missing and to get anything to an approximate idea of the monetary loss. It is Safe to assume that one half of the property of the City is wiped out and that one half of the residents have to face Abse Dute poverty. At Texas City thre a of the residents were drowned. There Are but few buildings at Texas City that do not Tell the Story of the storm. The hotel is one Man saved from a wreck will attract the worlds attention to the life Saver. Yet let the life saving to get continued every Day and very soon it attracts no Public attention. If the scene of the saving of one life by that life saving remedy or. Pierces Golden medical in covery could be made to staud out alone like a picture on a screen it would attract the notice of the whole nation.

Official reports from Galveston to governor Sayers Are that 400 Luj Dies have been identified 200 More Are in an improves d morgue awaiting identification and Many More Are thought to have drifted out to sea and their identity will not be known for weeks. A Tele am from adjutant general Scurry who is at Galveston to the governor is As follows a a have just returned from Texas City with several Galveston parties who assure me that conditions there beggar description. Accounts have not been exaggerated. One thousand lost is too conservative. While a portion of the provisions have been destroyed by water sufficient on hand to relieve immediate necessities. The citizens seem to have the situation Well in hand. United states troops and company a Volunteer guard with citizens patrol the streets to prevent looting. I respectfully suggest that the distress is too great for the people of Galveston even with the assistance of Houston to stand and that a general Appeal for help would be welcomed. The estimate of 10.000 destitute does not seem to be from reports reaching the governor it will be necessary to co operate with the Federal troops to place All the Mainland opposite Gale it ston. As Well As the Island under martial Law. If reports reaching Here Are True thieves have begun to enter the City for the purpose of pilfering the bodies of the dead. The governor has been informed that the commander of the Texas troops has been ordered to Galveston by the Federal authority its and the governor will lend him every assistance possible with state r1 to keep vandalism Down. According to reports to the governor the work of recovering corpses continues unabated and while a number of them Are so in tilted that they cannot be recognized they Are being held As Long As possible in the Hope of securing their names. Quite a number of children arc noted among t in list a Large number of state militia tents were shipped from Here to Galveston for temporary use on the Island. Governor Sayres received upwards of 1.u00 telegrams during the Day from parties in the West and East offering assistance to the flood sufferers at Galveston and from various portions of the state reporting the collection of Money and supplies. A Telegram from new York informed the governor that two Relief trains of supplies had left new York for Galveston. Approximately one third of the residence portion of the City has been swept away. There Are several thousand people who Are homeless and destitute. How Many there is no Way of finding out. Arrangements Are now being made to have the women and children sent to Houston and other places but the Means of transportation Are limited. Thousands Are still to be cared for at Galveston. More bodies have been picked up on the Beach at Virginia Point and Texas City and searching parties Are now getting into the country Between the two Points. One member of the life saving Crew says he believes that not one third of the dead bodies Are being recovered. Many Sank before reaching the Beach and he believes that a week will pass before the Bay gives up All the dead. A Man just arrived from Galveston says that bodies Are being cast into the Gulf with weights attached As the Best method of disposing of them while others Are being buried in the Sand where found. Many of these Are unidentified. And so the death list will never be known. Scores of people Are trying to get into Galveston. Many of them claim Rel Alves there but it is not possible to reach that City at present. All of the Small boats and tugs in the Bay have been taken Down the Bay to be used in Herriage. The great storm covered a Large area of the Cotton growing Section of Texas and did tremendous damage to the crop. A travelling Man who covers a big area of the state reports that for a Hundred Miles West of Houston the wind and storm have wrought great havoc and All chances for a crop have been destroyed. Southwest of Houston the Fields Are ruined. In Large Cotton growing counties around Houston it is said crops have been beaten into the ground and Are worthless. An Appeal from Galveston. It hum the Lon of life will i tech three Ali Dunand. Galveston sept. 12.�?the following statement of conditions at Galveston and Appeal for Aid is issued by the local Relief committee headed by mayor w. C. Jones Quot a conservative estimate of the loss of life is that it will reach 3,000. At least 5,000 families Are shelter less and wholly destitute and the entire remainder of the population is suffering in greater or less degree. Not a single Church school or charitable institution of which Galveston had so Many is left intact. Not a building escaped damage and half the whole number were entirely obliterated. There is immediate need for food clothing and household goods of All kinds. If nearby cities will open asylums for women and children the situation will be greatly relieved. Coast cities should Send us water As Well As provisions including kerosene Oil gasoline and some order is being brought out of chaos and something like a systematic attempt is being made to Clear the debris and remove the dead. Idlers Are being pressed into service at the Point of the Bayonet and made to work and a military cordon is being drawn tighter and tighter about the place. Every horse and mule that was left in the City is in service. Supplies Are coming in from Houston and the first line of communication with the outside world was opened yesterday via Texas City. Large forces Are working on the railroads and in a few Days the people of Galveston believe the situation will be greatly improved. Among the Saddest of Many sad incidents of the storm was the loss of the families of two police officers while the husbands and fathers were engaged in Rescue work. Officers Joe Bird and John Rowan were assigned to Rescue work in the East end Early saturday afternoon Ami together with other officers they worked faithfully to Succour water bound families near the Gulf. They rescued about 100 people from the fury of the storm. They returned to the station Only when the High water floated the patrol Wagon and threatened to drown the team of horses attached to it. They had no idea that the Waters of the Gulf had invaded the Western portion of the City where they lived until they returned to the police station and heard the report. Rowan and Bird started immediately for their Homes but their families had been swept away. Officer Bird lost his wife and five children and officer Rowan his wife and three children.

Is would not Back Down and that the Only outcome would be a strike or a satisfactory adjustment of the miners grievances. Fatin r Phillips left yesterday afternoon for Philadelphia and Washington. While he refused to say that his Mission was to Confer with the officers of the National federation of labor at the capital it is believed Here that he will make further efforts to have the trouble in the Anthracite Coal Fields settled in an amicable manner. There is a Rumor afloat that father Phillips has had a conference with president Mitchell in Philadelphia. It is reported that about 125 men employed at the scotch Valley Colliery 15 Miles from Hazleton and inaccessible by either Telephone or Telegraph have gone out on strike for higher wages. They Are not members of the United mine workers organization and it is expected that the trouble will be settled in a few Days. The superintendents of the Mineral company and of the Philadelphia and Reading Coal and Iron company at Shamokin were notified from their respective executive Headquarters yesterday afternoon that if the men at the Cameron Burnside and Henry Clay collieries go on strike in sufficient number to cause the operations to be closed Down then the mules and Iron shall be taken from the operations and the latter be abandoned. For some time the collieries had not been paying investments according to statements by the companies. If the three operations Are shut Down 3,000 men and boys will be thrown out of employment. National organizer Fred Dilcher of the United mine workers arrived at Scranton yesterday direct from the session of the National executive Board in Indianapolis and after learning from District president Nichols and Secretary Dempsey of the unrest and mutterings of discontent regarding the delay of the strike order framed and gave out a statement in which he says a i ask All men to he patient and to not discuss your matters on the Street but do your business in your Hall which is the proper place. So please remain at work until called upon to Stop and then let All quit and remain Idle until your rights have been granted and Justice done to All Quot the matter is now absolutely in the hand a of president Mitchell to whom was delegated All the Power necessary to act in behalf of the Board. No Man can yet say what that a action will be. But we have Confidence enough to know that not until the very last Effort at conciliation fails will there be a move on his part not inconsistent with the a How about the funds for the support of the men Quot he was asked.
