PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 13.--The »wry of the great sea born cyclone of September, lS??y, is far from told. It rug_-d ihe fourcli day nearly as furiobsly as wheu it sent its nr»t huge tides roaring against £· ih«res of the Atlantic. It may rage savagely again. For nearly 1,000 miles along the coast, between Virginia and Halifax, the winds have howled and the rains deseeiidtKl and the tide; beiten ·with a combined fury never known in this Lititu Ie. It is impossible to e^ti- iiia^o the damage done to summer resort properly, but it wiil reach far into the millions. The storm is still raging with \ iolence along the entire Xew Jwbey coast from Sandy Book point to Cape M.iy City, and up the Delaware river as far north as Trenton. It is, beyond question, the most severe storm that has vi»itc-d that portion of the Atlantic coast within the memory of the present generation. It is impossible to estimate in dollars and cents what the loss will be. but it will rm; up int*the millions. The contour of tht.- coast lias been changed to a remarkable degree in manv places. Alliiutic'City*!, Vlight. The place \\ here the danger seemed greatest, where thousands of lives were in peril, was Atlantic City, which or Monday night v.-os' completely cut of from communication with the rest o fhe country by the "oods over the_ sal marshes, ^vo trains could move in o: out of the city until yesterday, and fears ·were entertained that the people woulc: have little to eat except bread am water. But railroad communication has at last been restored to Atlantic Citv. the Pennsylvania railroad stlirouh its roads, the "\Vest Jersey and Camden and Atlantic) opening up communica tion. At 10 o'clock a tram was tent out of Atlantic City, and at noon a train was despatched from. Camden to Atlan tic. ;Sb lives -were lost in Atlantic City nor ·was any serious destruction ·wrough there by the storm, except along the beach. Tlie Damage Done- The greater portion of the board walk and most of the structures afoug it was damaged or destroyed, and at one time nearly the whole of the city was floodet by the high tides. Lee's ocean terrace property .already damaged by the wa\ os. was destroyed by fire. The restoration of railroad communication will bring great relief to the people at the seaside, as provisions were beginning to run short. A number of yachts are reportec to have been wrecked in, the thoroughfares and creeks at Atlantic City. The Inlet house is safe, but the surrounding property is much damaged. Mr. Frank Smith, of the Inlec house, telegraphs that he and his family are all right, and are as comfortable as possible under the circumstances. At Cape May. There is really nothing new of importance from Cape ilay and Cape May Feint. At Cape May proper the damage is cot large, being: confined to the shifting of several sections of the board ·walk and the undermining of the backing of the sea wall. Parts of the city up the beach, east of the Stockton hotel and along Cape Island creek, were so inundated that the inhabitants of several cottages oa the front, on Beach ave- nne. had to be carried out through the water on the shoulders of hack drivers, to the carriages ha waiting. These families took refuge for the time being in the large hotels that have remained open. Horels Swept Away at Sea Isle City. It is learned that ac Sea Isle City trwo hotels and about a dozen cottages ·were flooded to their third stories. Efforts are being made to repair the railroad so as to get piovisions to the place. It was just as stormy yesterday along the shore as the day before, so far as wind and rain are concerned, bur the tide -was not nearly so ferocious and not so high by nearly two feet. Coney Island suffered little extra damage. The fall of the big amphitheatre adjoining the bathing houses at Brighton Beach was the chief mishap. The Oldest Inhabitant Konplnsscd. Those "who spent this last summer season on the !New Jersey coast -would be surprised to see the havoc that has been ·wrought at the several resorts. The furv of the storm was such that even those talkative fellows, the '·oldest inhabitants," were amazed, and when questioned by newspaper reporters were found to be speechless from awe and astonishment. A trip was taken bv the reporter along the coast from Sandy Hook point to the Bamegat bay bridge of the Pennsylvajiia railroad. Everv- ·where -were seen the marks of the ravages which wind and "waves have caused among cottages, hotels, pie r s and railroads. Xol Over Tef- Tfae storm threatens to work still greater damage, aad it will be n-jrariy a ·week before the full extent of the loss cap. OQ ascerta'.Bei. The pretty little ·villages of Ken Bright ana LOT Moor suffered terribly from the surf and from the waters hacked up into the soath branch of the Shrewsbury river, on the ·west side of tiie town. The ocean hammered a^ay at the Sandy nook peninsula, opposite the too: of the highlands of ^Cavesink. until j succeeded in reoj-c-ning the passage into the Shrewsberry river, which has beers closed since she days of revolution. The waves tore out oiti£iiead. carried awav the beautiful lawns which were the j pride of the ^umm-r cottagers, and toppled several elegant cottages down into j the boiling surf, where they were almost instantly knocked to pieces. Havoc at T^oug: TSranch. One of the saddeat features of the storm was the encroachment of the sea along the front of Long Branch. Here the storm carri d awav bath houses and pavilions and cut huge gaps in the bluff which skirts Ocean avenue, the famous ' sat up aU night, almost wild with terror. It was pitch'dark and the storm raged so furious- J y that even strong men were unable to face it. Th* .Sandy Hook Railroad Wrecked. The tracks of the Sandy Hook division of the Central Railroad company of New Jersey was torn away in several places between Sandy Hook point and Sea Bright. At Asbury Park the los was not a ^-evere as it was further oorth. James A. Bradley, the founder of the town, liad his famous wooden DCean promenade badly damaged, and one of lu big pavilions was partially Uizdei mined by the *urf. The !and was cut out Irom the beach from 1'eal lake south through Aalniry Pork and Ocean Grove to Avuii-by-ihe-*\»- Itelour IK-can C.rofr. The *ar.ie story of wrecked walks, pavilions and bjthing hour's comes from all part* of the coast below Oce-u Grove us far as- -Sea Side Park on the narrow line of sanJ tiuit lies betvxvu, I the ocean and Kamegat bay. At ser- i eral places between the head of the bay ssd Sea Side Park the ocean broke over into the luiy, carrviajc witlxflfc hundreds of fe^-t of the track of the liong Branch and Philadelphia division of the Pennsylvania Kailroad coiiiuany. I A number of dead bodies have been J been floating in the surf. This indicates i-everv marine disasters.

Ut_vj \MI.N H.MUtlsoy. History of tlio C«»-. Tho following ^tatcsuent of the be- giimin-r and end of tiio Tanner ditliculty is oilicial and thoroughly veritied in every respect; Before his departure from \V:uhinjjton for his vacation trip Secretary Xoble on several occasions spoke to the president about tiie course of Commissioner Tanner and his clerks in the matter of reratin;* pensions and also in relation to unguarded remarks which the commissioner had made from time to time. The president was inclined to defend 3Er. Tanner an'l he did so several times. Recently 31r. Tanner made speeche*: at Elmira, Chatauqua and Milwaukee, which called forth ttrong- protests from prominent .Republicans. .*yobl«_,lle«iue«t* Hit Kentov:tl. Directly "after the Milwaukee incident Secretary Noble returned to the cicy de- termtned to bruis the Tanner matter to a climax. He put lus views before the president in a very positive manner and intimated that he would letire from the , interior department if 3Ir. Tanner was continued in office much longer. On Tuesday Senator Hiscock. of S"ew York, who had been talking with the- president about the matter, arid who had learned from him that it was likely to come to a climax, went to Commissioner Tanner, -without authority from the president, however, and said that the commissioner would better resign his office, as, if he did not, he ·would be removed. Atlvi^ed to KeMirn- From this interview grew the story, which was continued by the commissioner that he had been asked for his resignation. "When 3Ir. Tanner visited the "White House later he learned that the president had net asked for his resignation, and that Senator Hiscock had been acting on. his own responsibility. "Wednesday evening about 'J o'clock Daniel Eansdell, marshal of the District of Columbia and a particular friend of the president, went to }Ir. Tanner's house and in his private capacity, as he explained to the commissioner, suggested that Mr, Tanner would better re- heve the president of the difficulty in which he found himself placed by resigning. He told the commissioner'that the president had been his constant friend, and that he had shown it when , he gave him the office to which he was appointed, and afterward when he defended his course. Tlie Commissioner Surrender; The commissioner said that he appreciated this fact, but for a time he w,-is quite firm in his determination to force the president to choose between removing him and leaving hiin in -'-\ Shortly before midnight, however, he gave in an-1 agreed to write his resignation, and placed it then aad there in the hands of Mr. Raas'lell. The tone of the president's letter o acceptance is generally cort-iderecl not at all cordial, and it is commonly interpreted as unfavorable to Mr. Tanner's chances of being appointed to another office. Secretary HaTfonl Interviewed. Private Secretary Halford. in an interview, speaking about the published re ports of the conferences her over the Tanner ca^e and of newspaper statements bearing on the attitude*of Secre tary XobJe in tiie matter that have appeared from time to time, said: "You know the president is not a believer in much talk and I don"^ like to say anything about the pension office matter, bus- there are one or two mib- stateaients which ought to be corrected. Xo_ issue was ever made by Secrerary ydbl-s to the president as TO whet")t-r he or Mr. Tanner should go. Next, jhere was never any formal cabin"t conz-ultn tion about thu matter and then 1 w.o? no disagreement whatever among th.: niem- _ less any exchange of JT.CJV- The president hafj '-ev^-rrjj Tisnes the summer maie ^urgestion-.
