Disastrous as the Texas flood Is proving to have been. It will not measure up to the frightful catastrophe of May 31, 1889, when Johnstown and a number of adjacent towns In Pennsylvania were swept away by a flood released by the bursting of the South Fprk Fishing Club's dam. The dam broke at 3 P. M., and In three-quarters of an hoar the three 'miles of water behind It, abont 480,000,000 cubic feet In all, had drained out and was precipitated upon Johnstown. A swath of 1,000 feet was cut through the Iron works and the principal business and residence portion of the town by the water, which rose to a height of 30 or 40 feet. In three-quarters of an hour between 5,000 and 6.000 had perished and about $40,000,000 damage had been done. This has not been the first visitation of the kind Galveston has experienced, although it Is the worst. Beginning on September 15, 1875, the city was " half submerged and cut off from the mainland from Wednesday until late Sunday night. Scores of lives were lost and the damage aggregated a quarter of a million dollars. Following Is a list of a few of the notable floods and cyclone disasters of the past decade: June 20, 1892 Breaking dams flooded Ti-tusvUle and OH City, Pa. Oil and gasoline tanks burst and the flood became a seething mass of flames, Jn which 300 persons lost their lives. March 27, 1890 Tornado swept Louisville, Ky.; 93 killed; 500 Injured. May ,15, 1896 Tornado struck Grayson and Denton counties, Texas; 100 killed. May 27, 1S96 Tornado in St. Louis and East ,St. Louis; 500 killed and 1.500" wounded. Property loss, $200,000,000. Part of the two cities razed to the ground. September 29, 1896 A tornado and tidal wave destroyed part of Cedar Keys, Fla., and wrecked many vessels. Many lives lost. . June 12, 1890 A tornado In Southern Wisconsin and Minnesota partially destroyed the cities of Hastings. New Richmond and Hudson; 500 killed, 1,000 wounded.

PART OF COAST IS ISOLATED Desperate Efforts To Send Help To Stricken People Cotton Crop . Damaged To The Extent Of 250,000 " Bales, According To Reports. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. Houston, Tex., Sept. 10. The full horror of the calamity wrought by the West Indian storm Saturday and Sunday at Galveston and other places in Texas Is begln-nlg to dawn on the people of this State. Estimates of the loss of life in Galveston alone now vary from 1,000 to 5,000. The exact number may never be knpwn. The property loss is believed to be fully $10,-000,000. . Experience Of A Survivor. Richard Spillane, a Galveston newspaper man, who reached Houston today after a' terrible experience, gives the following account of the disaster at Galveston: i "One of the most awful tragedies of modern times has visited Galveston. The city is In ruins and the dead will number probably 1,000. I am just from the city, having been commissioned by the Mayor and citizens committee to get In touch with the outside world and appeal for help. Houston was the nearest point at which working telegraph instruments could be found, the wires as well as nearly all the buildings between here and the Gulf of Mexico being wrecked. "When 1 left Galveston shortly before noon yesterday the people were organizing for the prompt burial of the dead, distribution of food and all necessary work after a period of disaster. . - "The wreck of Galveston was brought about by a tempest so terrible that no words can adequately describe its intensity and by a flood which' turned the city Into a raging sea. The weather bureau records show that the wind attained a velocity of 84 miles an hour when the measuring Instrument blew away, so It is Impossible to tell Vhat was the maximum. Beginning Of The Storm. "The storm began at 2 o'clock Saturday morning. Previous to that a great storm, had been raging in the Gulf and the tide was very high. The wind at first came from the north and was In direct opposition fo the force from the Gulf. While the storm in the Gulf piled the water upon the beach side, of the city the north yrlnd piled the water from the bay into the other side of the city. ' "About noon It became evident that the city was going to be visited with disaster. Hundreds of residences along the beach front weVe hurriedly abandoned, the families fleeing to dwellings In higher portions, of the city. Every home was opened to the refugees, black or white. The winds were rising constantly and it rained In torrents. ' The wind was so fierce that the rain cut like a knife. "By 3 o'clock 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 plants left the city in darkness. To go "upon the streets was to court death. The wind was then at cyclonic velocity, roofs, cisterns, portions of buildings, telegraph poles and walls were falling, and the noise of the wind and the crashing of buildings were terrifying In the extreme. The wind and waters rose steadily from dark until L45 o'clock Sunday morning. -' Persons Lilce Rats In Traps. "During all this time the people of Galveston were like rats In traps. The highest portion of the city was four to five feet under water, , while in the great majority of cases the streets were submerged to a depth of 10 feet. To leave a house was to drown. To remain was to court death In the wreckage. Such a night of agony has seldom been equaled. "Wlthont apparent reason the waters suddenly began to subside at 1.45 A. M. Within 20 minutes they had gone down 2 feet and before daylight the streets were practically freed of the flood waters. In the meantime the wind had veered to the southeast. "Very few if any buildings escaped in-Jury. 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 sight Imaginable. In the three blocks from Avenue N to Avenue P In Tremont street I saw eight bodies. Four corpses were in one yard. . , "The whole of the business front for three blocks In from the Gulf was stripped of every vestige of habitation, the. dwellings, the great bathing establishments, the Olympia and every structure having been either carried out to sea or Its ruins piled In a pyramid far into the town, according to the vagaries of the tempest. Largest Structures Crumbled. "The first hurried glance over the city showed that the largest structures, supposed to be the most substantially built, suffered the greatest. , "The Orphans' Home, Twenty-first street 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's Infirmary, together with the attendants, only eight are understood to have been saved. "The Aged Woman's Home, on Rosenberg avenue, collapsed, and the Rosenberg schoolhouse is a mass of wreckage. "The Ball High School Is but an empty shell, crushed and broken. Every church In the city, with possibly one or two exceptions, is-in ruins. "At the forts nearly all the soldiers are reported dead, they having been In temporary quarters, which gave them no protection against the tempest or the flood. "No report has been received from the Catholic Orphan Asylum, down the island, but It seems Impossible that it could have withstood the hurricane. . If It fell all the inmates were no doubt lost, for there was no aid within a mile. ' Bay Front In Ruins. V "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 superworks and their stocks are damaged by water. "The life-saving station at Fort Point was carried away, the crew being swept across the bay 14 miles to Texas City. I saw Captain Haines yesterday and he told me that his wife and one of his crew were drowned. - "The shore at Texas City contains enough wreckage to rebuild a city. Eight persons who 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 living and the dead which the storm cast up at Texas City caskets and coffins from one of the cemeteries at Galveston were being fished out of the water there yesterday. Several Bodies Found. "In the business portion of the city two large" brick buildings, one occupied by Knapp Brothers and the other by the Cotton Exchange saloon, collapsed. . In the Cotton Exchange saloon there were about 15 persons. Most of them escaped. Up to the time I left Galveston three dead bad been taken from the ruins. "The cotton mills, the bagging factory, the gas works, the electric light works and nearly all the industrial establishments of the city are either, wrecked or crippled. The flood' left a slime about one Inch deep over the whole city, and unless fast progress i made. In burying corpses and carcasses of animals there is danger of pestilence." . "; . , Some of the stories of the escapes are miraculous. William Nisbett, a cotton man, was burled In the ruins of the Cotton ' Exchange- saloon, andr when . dug .out In the morning had no further Injury than a few bruised fingers. Dr. S. O. Young, secretary of the Cotton Exchange, was knocked senseless when his house collapsed, but was revived by the water and was carried 10 blocks by the hurricane. . " ' A woman' who had just become a mother was carried from her' home to a house a block distant, the men who were carrying her having to hold her high above, their heads, as the "water was five feet deep when she was moved. A Miraculous Escape. "Many stories were current of houses falling and inmates escaping. Clarence N. Ousley, editor of the Evening Tribune, had ' his family and the families of two neighbors In his house when the lower half crumbled and the upper part slipped down into the water. Not one in the house was hurt. ' , "Of the Lavlne family six out of seven are reported dead. "Of the Burnett family only one Is known to have been saved.- "The family of Stanley G. Spencer, who met death in the Cotton Exchange saloon, is reported to be dead. "The Mlstrot 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 Boschke says, as far as the com-" pany Is concerned, it might as well start over again. Eight Big Steamers Stranded. "Eight ocean steamers were torn from their moorings and stranded in the bay. The Kendall Castle was carried over the flats and Thirty-third , street wharf to Texas City and lies in the wreckage of the Inman pier. The Norwegian steamer Gyller Is stranded between Texas City and Virginia Point. An ocean liner was swirled . around through the west bay,-prashed 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 10 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 BritlsTT 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 np along the slips of the piers. The tug Louise, of the Houston Direction Navigation Company, Is also a wreck. . Time Needed To Ascertain Loss. "It will take a week to tabulate the dead and the missing and to get anything near an approximate idea pf 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 absolute poverty. "At Texas City three of the residents were drowned. One man stepped Into a well by a mischance and his body was found there. Two other men ventured along the bay front during the height of the storm and were klllecL. "There are but few buildings at Texas City that do not tell the story of the storm. The hotel Is a complete ruin. The office of the Texas City Company was almost entirely destroyed. Nothing remains of the piers except the piling. "The, wreckage from Galveston litters the shore for miles and Is 100 yards or more wide. "For 10 miles Inland from the shore it is a common sight to see small craft, such as steam launches, schooners and . " oyster sloops.

The bodies are mostly those of women and children. WIDESPREAD DESTRUCTION Not A Word From The Gulf Coast South Of Galveston. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. Dallas, Tbxas, Sept. 10. Allr reliable Information that has been received here from Galveston since the storm comes from the advance guard of the relief forces' and the linemen sent out by the railroad, telegraph and the telephone companies.' None of these reports places the number of dead at Galveston at less than 2,000. Some of them predict that 5,000 will be nearer the mark. No one places the property loss at Galveston at less than $10,-000,000. Manager Vaughan, of the Western Union office at Houston, wires Manager Baker at Dallas that "Galveston as a business place Is practically destroyed." Along the coast for a hundred miles each way from Galveston Is a scope of country that is nearly as badly Isolated as Is Galveston Itself. In this territory are not less than 100 cities, villages and hamlets. Each of them has, as far as heard from, all the way from three to twenty dead persons reported. In a radius of approximately 20 miles from Virginia Point, the center of railroad relief operations, up to late' this "afternoon more than 700 human bodies had been washed ashore or picked up from the mainland. Hitchcock, Clear Creek, Texas City, Virginia Point, Seabrook, Alvin, Dickinson and half a dozen other points midway between Houston and Galveston compose one vast morgue. Down along the coast toward Corpus CUrlstl and Rockport all is silence. Not a word had come from there up to this evening. The first news from that section Is likely to come from San Antonio, as that Is tie most directly connected point with that section of the Gulf. An awful calamity, it is feared, will be chronicled when the report does come. ' Telegraph communication was opened late this afternoon with Beaumont and Orange on the other extreme end of the Gulf to "the eastward of Galveston. News was received that those two towns and Tort Arthur were safe. In the territory adjacent, 40 miles wide and 100 miles long, many lives are believed to have been lost, and immense property losses, including commercial and other material Interests at Galveston and Houston, put the total at from forty to fifty million dollars for the State. This Includes the damage to cotton, which is placed at 250,000 bales. . . . , John Clay, one of the foremost men In the cotton trade at Dallas addressed wire inquiries to all accessible points In the cotton-growing districts of Texas concerning crop losses. Spot cotton sold at 10 cents per pound on the market, an advance of half a cent per pound over Saturday's closing figures. Futures for October and November advanced '55 to 60 points o rer Saturday's best figure. "A telegram was received by W. C. Conner from E. H. R. Green, a son of Hetty Green, of New York, dated at Rbchpo'rt, stating that that place had not been damaged by the storm and that the visitors at the Tarpon Clubhouse on St. Joseph's Island were safe. tThIs news lessens the fears felt for the safety of the people living along the coast In the vicinity of Roch-port and Corpus Chrlstl.

The officers of the National Government have taken steps to render all possible aid and assistance to the flood sufferers of Texas.

President McKinley's telegram was as follows: "Washington, D. C, September 10. "Hon. J. D. Sayers, Governor of Texas, Austin, Texas: . "The reports of the great calamity which has befallen Galveston and other points on the coast of Texas excite my profound sympathy for the sufferers, as they will stir the hearts of the whole country. Whatever help it is possible to give shall be gladly extended. Have directed the Secretary of War to supply rations and tents upon your request. "William McKinlet." Battery O, First Artillery, which. garrisoned Fort San Jacinto, on Galveston Island, was commanded by Capt. William C. Rafferty. First Lieutenant Lasslter Is at present on detail duty at West Point, but the second lieutenant, J. C. Nichols, was with his company during the storm. The War Department tonight received a dispatch from General McKlbbin, in command of the Department-of Texas, saying: "Start first train tonight. Press reports received here state that all of battery lost but 15 men; both officers lo6t." Adjutant-General Corbin thinks the telegram means only 15 men were caved. In view of the reported difficulties In reaching Galveston owing to the condition of the railways, it is expected that General McKlbbin will .scarcely be able to report to the War Department upon the disaster Inside of 24 hours, unless he avails himself of reports coming to him.. Acting Secretary of the Treasury Spanld-ing has ordered two revenue cutters, one at Norfolk and one at Wilmington, N. C, to proceed at once to Mobile, Ala., and there await orders. It is expected that they will be needed in supplying food and tents to the storm sufferers. Miss Clara Barton, president of the American National Red Cross, has telegraphed Governor Sayers at Austin, Texas, as follows: "Do yon need the Red Cross in Texas? We are ready." SATERS ORGANIZES RELIEF Governor Drops All Other Work Many Responses To Appeal. Austin, Texas, Sept. 10. Governor Sayers has organized a perfect relief committee f or'alding the flood sufferers at Galves-" ton. Tonight he stated that he would give his personal supervision to the matter, relegating ail State business for the time being and remaining in -his office here for the. purpose of being in constant communication with every point available. He has spent the day placing himself In communication by telegraph with all the Mayors and county judges in the State, calling on them to hold mass-meetings and secure Immediate assistance in the way of money or food for the flood sufferers at Galveston and along the Gulf coast in general. Starting with the 50,000 rations granted him by the War Department, Governor Sayers has been given five carloads of rations by citizens of Dallas, and he received upward of ten thousand dollars in subscriptions up to tonight. He is in receipt of numerous telegrams from the Eaef offering assistance, and he is confident that he will be In a position within a few days of looking after the wants of all.. Though they will be many,, the Governor stated tonight that he never knew of a greater public calamity and that he felt that every section of the country would respond liberally to the call for assistance made by the distressed people of Galveston. Relief work for the Galveston sufferers was started vigorously in Dallas on receipt of an appeal from Governor Sayers. The City Council appropriated $500. A mass-meeting of citizens appointed soliciting committees, as did also the Odd-Fellows and the Knights of Pythias. Fully $10,000 in cash had been subscribed by night. A special train was started from Dallas for Houston tonight over the Houston and Texas Central Railroad carrying committees of Odd-Fellows, Knights of Pythias and citizens to render aid and distribute relief in the storm districts. 0 At the request of many persons in Dallas the telegram was sent to Governor Sayers by J. C. McNealus, secretary of the Dallas County Democratic Executive Committee, inquiring of the Governor as to his idea of calling an extra session of the State Legislature. Governor Sayers replied as follows: "Telegram received. I will do nothing until I can hear directly and authoritatively from Galveston except to call upon the people to render assistance." As there is approximately a surplus of $2,000,000 cash in the State Treasury, it is reasoned that the people of Texas would Indorse the Governor's action should he conclude to call a special session to furnish public relief to the smitten section of the State. Houston, Texas, Sept. 10. The citizens of Houston, storm-tossed themselves, have been actively at work all today endeavoring to mitigate the situation at Galveston. Two vessels loaded with supplies left the city during the morning, but their trip will be slow, owing to the obstructions which have been blown into Buffalo baypu. The railroad companies are unable to reach, even Virginia Point, six miles across Galveston bay from the city, and are giving relief to people along the line, for there has been considerable loss of life and tremendous damage to property on the mainlandthe territory south of here. The railroad's bridges connecting the mainland with Galveston are demolished and It wlll be Impossible to operate trains for some time. The. almost complete loss of sailing and steam craft will seriously militate against relief measures, but what is possible is being accomplished by the people of Houston and the State authorities. There is a strong element of uncertainty and until the relief parties are heard from it will be Impossible to estimate the situation accurately.. New York, Sept. 10. Jefferson Selig-inan, of J. & W. Seligman & Co., of this city, has contributed $1,000 for the benefit of the sufferers by the Galveston floods. The firm will also act as agent in receiving and forwarding contributions.

COUBSE OF THE STORM Tile Atlantic Coast Was Threatened At One Time. - TURNED ASIDE AT SET Tf ESI OriR-inatcd About Augrust -30 Near - - The Windward . Islands Progress ' Across Gulf Of Mexico. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Bun. Washington, Sept. 10. Dr. H. CFrank-enfleld, forecast official of the Weather Bureau, in a statement concerning the West Indian hurricane, which has done such great damage in Texas, says: - "The first sign of the storm was noticed August 30, near the Windward Islands, about latitude 15 north, longitude 63 west. The" morning of September 3 found It about 175 miles south of the middle ' of Cuba. It had moved northwestward to latitude 21" and longitude 81 by September 4. "Up to this time the storm had not developed any destructive force, but had caused heavy rains, particularly at Santiago, Cuba, where 12.58 incites of rain fell In 24 hours. On the morning of the 5th the storm -center had passed over Cuba and had become central between Havana and Key West. High winds occurred over Cuba during the night of the 4th. "By the morning of the 6th the storm center was a short distance northwest of Key West, Fla., and the high winds had commenced over Southern Florida, 48 miles an hour from the east being reported from Jupiter and 40 miles from the northeast from Key West. "At this time it became a question as to whether the storm would recurve and pass up along the Atlantic Coast, a most natural presumption judging from the barometric conditions over the eastern portion of the United States, or whether it would continue northwesterly over the Gulf of Mexico. "During the 6th bardmetrlc conditions over the eastern portion of the United States so far changed as to prevent the movement of the storm along the Atlantic Coast, and it therefore continued northwest over the Gulf of Mexico. On the morning of the 7th It was apparently central sonth of the Louisiana coast, about longitude 89, latitude 28. "At this time storm signals were ordered up on the north Texas coast, and during the day were . extended along the entire coast. On the morning of the 8th the storm was nearing the Texas coast and was apparently central at abont latitude 28, longitude 94". "The last report received from Galveston, dated 3.40 P. M., September 8, showed a barometric pressure of 29.22 inches, with a wind of 42 miles an hour northeast. Indicating that the center of - the storm was quite close to that city. At this time the heavy sea from the southeast was constantly rising and already covered the streets of about half the city. Since then nothing has been beard." Prof. Willis Moore, Chief of the Weather Bureau, said today that the storm was central in Oklahoma today and was rapidly losing its destructive character, the wind at Oklahoma City being reported as blowing at 30 miles an hour. It probably will pass Into history as one of the most disastrous, as well as peculiar, storms on record. ' Chief Moore received the following telegram from G. L. Vaughan, manager of the Western Union . Telegraph Company, at Houston, Tex.: x "Weather clear and bright here, with gentle southeast wind." "The telegram Irom Mr. Vaughan,' said Mr. Moore, "Indicates that the waters from the Gulf encroached six miles inward. The sudden passage of the storm per minted, I am afraid, 'this water to recede ranldlV- find In ssiirh easuk no aha cuti tuarf- mate the damage to life and property done. I heartily trust my fears are groundless." ANXIOUS FOR MRS. R0SENBCRG Maryland Woman A Prominent Resident Of Galveston. ir kiii. rnAtii T 1 of Dr. Charles G. W.
