The streets heretofore have not permitted of their use. In different parts of the city much progress was made In clearing up debris. The beet work In this direction waV done along the skore line of the gulf on the south side of the r. During tne day bodies were found frequent Interval* and just at sunset en were found In the ruin* of one house. It Is expected that more will be found tomorrow, aa the working gang that today found the seven bodies will clear up some debris where it la known that fifteen people were killed. Will Rebuild at Once. The residents of Galveston are plucky In the extreme In their determination to rebuild and make Galveston a greater and better city than if ever has been before, but in one direction at least they have suffered a loss that is beyond renalr. and that Hes in the extent of territory wrested from them by the storm. The waters of the gulf now cover about 5.500,000 square feet of ground that was formerly nan of Galveston. This loss has been suffered entirely on the south side of the elty. where the finest residences were built, facing the gulf, and where land held at a higher valuatlo n than In any, other part of the city, with the ex ception of the business district For three miles along the shore of the gulf this choice residence property extended, and the shore line was ao chang ed by the storm that at low tide the water is 350 feet' higher along the entire tkree miles, in the eastern part of th* erty there are places where 350 feet is less than the actual amount of ground taken from the city. It Is a fair estimate, however, for the entire distance. The foundation piles of the Beach hotel, which was burned two year* ago, now stand In the water. Before the sto rm there was beach in front of the hotel site nearly •30 feet wlda There Is no possibility of any of this land being reclaimed. Every hour brings Galveston nearer to normal condition* and the Improvement of each day shows a decided gain over that of the preceding. It will be weeks and possibly months before the city will be I* good running shape, but matters are fast condition, which,, compar ed to the existing chaos in the early part of the week Is comfort and happiness. The great Immediate need of the city t present Is money— not subscriptions. but cold, hard cash. It is needed in every direction and for a multitude of purposes. most important of these is to pay men who are cleaning up the streets. Adjutant General Scurry said today: Tehave not a dollar to c - av th. men whn are working In the streets all day long. I work.' I have not th* monev to maka good the promise. I hope and believe that the country will understand the situation. nust have this city cleaned up at any and with the greatest speed possible. ^ «jppuea witr. this spiencoa ani J*»need never fear rising or sweUlnf, re w"'to usually accompany p*wg - a larra hotel in Tampa.

Which was tuned en yesterday afternoon for a short time, was on again this morning, in full force, and win remain so from bow on. The waterworks, never badly damaged, have been nut Into a condition that affords an abundant supply of good water on every hand. The mains were thoroughly flushed this morning, and for several hours the hydrants were allowed to play Into the gut ters, the effect being one of great im provement. Ever since the feionn there hae been a mass of dark, foul - smelling slime over parts of all the streets and i a menace to public This has now been almost entirely cleared away, and the Intense odor that filled the city during the early part of the week has in consequence been greatly re - The work of burning bodies is still going on, they being hurried to the fires as soon s possible after being taken from the ater. All of last night and all of today there have been numerous great fires along the shore, and in every one of them there were anywhere from three to twenty bodies. There is no longer the slightest attempt at identification. No effort is made to ascertain whether the body is that of a white or colored person. All of them hare been* so long to the water r a blazlns sun that It would be ex ceedingly difficult to determine the iden tity of anybody unless by the clothing, and in most eases the bodies are entirely destitute of garments. Pull them out - of the water aa soon as seen and throw them in the flames as soon as taken from the water la the order, and It Is most effect. uallv carried out The residents of Galveston are of the opinion that there are more dead than the outsiders coming in are generally willing to admit It is beyond all possibility that any actual count will ever be had, but the best evidence obtainable, and allowing for those bodies which bare been cast up by the waters after being once thrown Into, the gulf and twice counted, and for thex numbers that were carried out to sea sad will never be heard of, a total list of the dead cannot be far from 1.000 and Is under that figure rather than over it. The people of Galveston say that they know that tt will amount to anywhere between 6.000 and and the estimates are for the most Bart in the neighborhood of the larger figure. General McKlbben gives the of 1.000 in the city of Galveston alone. All no and down the coast there baa been loss of Ufa that will not be learned of for weeks sad months. If ever. Tffca total number of dead from the storm in this state cannot be far from Adjutant General Scurry, who m a most ed in placing the gangs of laboring saea like order, and the work of cleaning up the city is progressing mora systematic manner than at any time heretofore. The results are consequently greater. For three days he has struggled. In addition to the other manifold duties that have been thrust upon him. with the task of get the laborers to work according to previously determined plan, and he has at last succeeded. Forage for the horses Is badly needed. There have been tons and car loads of supplies received from ail parts of the country for the suffering residents of Galveston, hut not a wisp of hay or a bushel of oats has come in for the ani - uds. General McKlbben said before leaving this morning for San Antonio: "I am not an alarmist and I ft - not predict a pestilence; bat I think things Die unless prompt fa Iron and there Is nothing that will be so effective as fire. The water mains are working now and there will be no trouble in' controlling the Provisions continue to come in from all points, but there to need for It all. The supplies are handled In an excellent manner and there is no waste. Stringent orders have been given that all people who attempt to procure more than their rightful proportion of the supplies shall be punished, and there have already been several arrests for the offense. Several car* of supplies came to this morning from point's In Texas sad two barges laden with government stores came to this afternoon. as well as the flag.
