Gibson and wrangling with her, "fought it out." She emerged victor. ''Crazy Willie" Stevens, brother ot Mrs. Hall, and looked upon as simple minded, remains the same "Crazy Willie."

The struggle was between ght and darkness, and the govern- ent would win, he said. All Catholics in the country are to be disarmed in accordance with an order issued by Attorney General Or- tega.

Nassau had meager warning of the advance the hurricane. The Tropical Radio Station near Miami radioed weather reports Sunday when brisk winds and a rapidly fall- ng barometer indicated the ap- proach of storms.

The wind stead- ly increased in velocity throughout the day and at midnight a gale lash- ed the island, tearing houses from their foundations and uprooting trees. Wires were blown down and the public utility plants damaged to such an extent that the city was plunged into darkness. The govern- nent record showed the wind reach- ed its Telocity peak at 130 miles an lour at 6 o'clock Monday morning. Churning the harbor into seeth- ing mass of waves, the hurricane piled water high over the wharves nto Bay street, a block into the city. Soon a gale swept down from the northwest, meeting tho onrush from the Caribbean, and ships were lifted high from their moorings and sent onto the wharves.

Several were blown to sea. Among the vessels known to have sunk in the harbor here was the 80- ton yacht Isoceles, formerly the Shamrock IV, Sir Thomas Liptou's famous American cup challenger. It lies under 40 feet of water beside numerous small craft varying from sail boats to small yachts. At tho island of Gun Key, eight large rum running boats, heavily laden with liquor were dashed to pieces by the waves. The crews es- caped rowing ashore in small boats at the first approach of the hurri- cane.

Nothing was known of the fate of the government mail boat Brontes, which proceeded for San Salvador shortly before the inrush of the storm. The Albertine Adou with 40 persons aboard, sailed for the island of Inaugua, a few hours before the hurricane struck. It was also class- ed among the missing craft. The mail boat carried 20 persons. The liquor trade, one of the chief sources of income of the islands has been dealt a crushing blow and he probable loss of the sponge fleet will curtail for some time the group's oldest and chief industry of fishing for some time.

Strewn I bits like shattered playthings by the temperamental hur- ricane a mass of broken wreckage clutters the water front from the eastern parade, one of tho several government prominades, far to the westSrn edge of the island.
