Alone the «ntlre route there was arreat enthusiasm. The decorations were pro - iuee throughout the city and the route of the parade was a mass of bunting, flags and banners.

ROOSEVELT CLAIMS ALL THINGS Bough Eider Tells His Audience That He Is a Dutchman. Holland. Mich.. September 8, - Govemor Roosevelt began the closing day of his flying tour through Michigan by address - Insr an audience composed almost wholly of Hollanders and their descendants. The governor evidently took pride In beinir able to address them as fellow Dutchmen. President Kollen, of Hope college, and a delegation of Holland citizens met the governor at Grand Rapids and came through with him. In the Holland city park i„crowd of 2,000 was waiting. President Kollen presided and referred to the fact that Roosevelt came from Holi^nJ stock, like themselves, saying: "Governor Roosevelt was born a Dutch - In acknowledging this sally. Roosevelt, with a laugh, opened his address with "My fellow Dutchmen." This set the crowd cheering and some of the did set tiers yelled Dutch salutes. Colonel Roosevelt's speech was devoted principally to the prosperous condition of the country, urging that the only threat to the welfare of the country was the election of Bryan. He predicted that if wc reverse our present condition a commercial crisis and business paralysis would follow. He appealed to all citizens who loved their country ana their flag to stand by the administration. TAKES THE PABT OF THE NEGRO Roosevelt Says Black Han's Bights Are Trampled Under Foot. Kalamazoo. Mich.. September 8.— Colonel Roosevelt made a 'speech here In which he sharply criticized the democrats for talking imperialism in the east ana silver in theJfeSt. Speaking of the Philippines, he said: "Another question that we hear 4 good deal about Is the consent of the governed as applying in the Philippines. We hear nothing about it from our opponents as applying in certain sections of our country, where they deliberately trample the doctrjne about which they talk so mucu underfoot They loudly proclaim that no man has a right to govern another as long as eie man in an American and another a Tagal bandit. But they have not a word to say when it Is a whits man that governs tfcs bjack man without his consent, although the black man In all probability was born free and equal; a fellow citizen with Mr. Bryan - He ought at least to be consistent without any question of policy.

Houston, Tex., September 8.— A hurri - ine, accompanied bv a heavy rain, has been blowing along the Texas coast and or a hundred miles inland today. Tel graph and telephone wires are down along the coast and no accurate news Is obtainable. There are an sorts of rumors. nothing authentic. Galveston Is shut entirely. Communication Was lost at o'clock this afternoon and no trains have been operated today and none will be run until late tomorrow. The last report from Galveston stated that the gulf waters were encroaching rapidly on the beach and that the flood had extended nto the residence portion of the city tor leveral blocks. The waves were high and boisterous In the bay and considerable damage was being done to small. craft, though none of the big boats were then n any danger. The rain has been heavy 11 dav and traffic was entirely suspenoea. There had been no casualties and but little damage except along the water •ont. The Southern Pacinc wnarves, 1 .r construction, had been damaged le extent of 126.000. At 4:30 the wind as increasing In velocity. Inland there has been much damage to v. cotton crop, the lint being blown and beaten from the open bolls, and the rice op has suffered severely as it was near ly ready for harvesting. CITY OF GALVESTON CUT OFF. All Texas Anxious as to Bate of the Metropolis. Dallas. Tex.. September 8.— All Texas Is In the keenest state of doubt and un certainty tonight concerning the fate of Galveston island and city, m everybody's mind is the dire suspicion that an awful calamity rests behind the lack of information from the gulf coast. It is reported here that Immense destruction has befallen Galveston and other places. It Is said that the bridges leading from the mainland to the island have been swept away by the terrible force of the wind and the rolling up of the water In the bay. The bridges are four in number, three for railroad uses and one the Galveston county public wagon and pedestrian bridge. It seems hardly creditable that all these bridges could be swept r without the cltv suffering tremen dously In the loss of bulldisgs, general perty and Hves. ot a wire is working Into Galveston, either telegraph or telephone, and as all bridges carried wires, the fears that all the bridges are gone Is strengthened. The Postal Telegraph Company this evening started out a repair train from Houston. - but it proceeded a few miles only before it had to stop because of storm obstructions and had to return to Houston fwsthout making an improvement In the Postal service. The Western Union Is equally as bad and the telephone lines are also down. Considering that all that has been learned so far of the storm is from the mainland and the bay. a dread is felt that the wind may veer around gulf ward, in which event Galveston will be in direst peril. special late tonight from Houston says there is "an unconfirmed rumor In that city that she hurricane raging along me kiui coast nas played smash with the town of Rockport, on the lower coast, and that the great clubhouse built by E. H. G. Green near there has been blown away with the loss of life, as there were several guests In the house, but their names are not Known here. The cam port says that a cyclone raged through Live Oak county, but It could not have done much damage, ae that county Is not 1 meaiy seniea. The storm on the Texas coast has a fierce one, and there are ail son rumors ss to the damage done. The telegraph and telephone wires are down in every direction, and there is no way of confirming these rumors or of getting any accurate news as to what has really The wind has blown a hurricane all day. and has been accompanied 1 driving rain in Houston. Considerable damage has been done, but all of a minor character. Galveston Is abut off from the re the earth. Not a train has come in or gone cut today, and none will get through tor 'ght, A partial report came through by wire thla afternoon, tt to said the low streets on both sides of the city were Inundated, and that many p# had been driven from their homes along the beach by the encroaching waters; the rainwater was standing in the stree the depth of three feet, and could not run off.

New Orleans, September 8.— Owing to the prostration of the telegraph wires. trickled into this city tonight very slowly, with respect to the twenty - four hours' storm that swept the country last night for miles around, but the wires brought at least one cheering piece of in formation, and that was that Dr. O. H. Buford and Sergeant Quinn, of the United States military forces, who were reported drowned, bad been miraculously saved. and had turned ud safe' and sound at Fort St. Philip today. The damage dene about New Orleans was trifling, amounting only to the cost of fences blown down and truck farms on the outskirts flooded. At the resorts on the lake shore, where it was feared there would be considerable damage, none of any serious character occurred. Wharves and revetments both withstood the fury of the blow, and in spite of the shallowness of Lathe l'ont - chartratn and its choppy sea. no siu - r craft seems to have succumbed to the gale. The most costly damage June by the storm baa been to the rice end cane At the hotels tonight there were soma forty Louisiana planters from various sections of the, state. .They gave altering estimates of th* damage do. - .w bu. both In the southeastern and southwest ern portions of the state the cane seems to have been badly blown down and the rice fields damaged. Both the young cane and the maturing stalks suffered, end many thousand acres lay flat this a ing. With favorable weather the damage to cane will probably be materially induced. The damage suffered by the rice, however, to likely to be considerable. There wag a large crowd at the depot ot the Grand Isle train when it pulled into the station tonight. These present expected dire tidings from below. Superin tendent Landry aad other official, of *he road, however, said that the news they had to bring was both good and bad. It good In that definite informatlof came of the rescue of the two army oflfa rs, and bad in that It had been learned that very heavy damage had been done :o the growing crops. The Grand Isle •oad - traverses some of the finest sugar and rice plantations in the state. As far an be learned tonight, the storm s to have been attended with prsctic no loss of life. The owners of the telegraph line running from here to Port is - were able to get communication as down as Fort St. Philip. Gangs have been sent out to restore the broken com - unl cation STEAMER.

New Orleans, September 8— Advices from Fort St. Philip late tonight say that " the sea water backed up Into the Mississippi so rapidly that it went clear over levees ana luggers were carried lt - to marshes by the waves, and with the reced'ni; waters were strewn along the river bank high and dry for a mile. A stern - wheel steamer on the "way to Koloxl, Miss., now lies on dry land to the back of a house, five miles above Fort St. Philip. The boat was carried a distance of two miles across the marsh in ten minutes. Most damage appears to have been done on the ras: bank nf the river. of the Jetties was damaged the crop destroyed.
