Entire towns in the interior of the state were demolished. Early rumors spoke o£ Cedar Keys having been wiped out but, fortunately, later..and more authentic reports show thisj.'was an exaggeration. As it is, however, 15 persons are reported drowned. - In Mrs. Weidley's house ulone five persons perished by the flood, including 1 -three of Mrs. Weidley's children nnd her niece and the latter's child. Bodies-tire being-recovered from nlong tl;e coast, nnd inn-ny fishermen who. went out Monday night have notVen. heard from since they left. It is feared that fatalities will exceed Ihe number already reported. The Florida Central & Peninsular railway will be compelled to build en entire new trnck for a distance of four m!!cs. All -the wharves at Cedar Keys were washed away. Several houses we.re blown down and six were desl royect by fire. This is the result of Tuesday's storm and tidal wave. -Particulars of the dis- nster are only just beginning to come in, end they show the calamity was worse than first supposed. Sponger Mary Elix.a reports that nt dark Monday night nearly 100 vessels' were anchored on the sponge bar below Cedar Keys and that all but about 20 were lost. These boats carried from four to ten 'men each; th'j loss of life was groat. Eight corpses have already been washed ashore. The schooner Rosalia was sunlc nnd eight of her crew drowned. Hundreds Loft Destitute. Reliable news from the western part of Levy and Alachua counties has just reached Jacksonville, Not less than 200 families are left destitute. Scores of injured have been reported with ovpr 30 fatalities in Levy county. Columbia county fared very badly. All the country south of LakeCity is devastated. 'In the Caleb Marcum neighborhood scaree)3-a residence or house is left standing. In the vicinity of Payne nnd Mount Tabor post offices the destruction was'great. Appalling Loos of Llf«. Exclusive of the hundreds of spongers supposed to have been drowned' oil Cedai Keys, the death list in thesinte proper bids fair to reach 100 and the. property loss will run into the millions. The people seem to be paralyzed by the calamity' thnt has overcome tlu'-m, nnd this is reflected in the uccount sent in of the storm's work. In th majority of cases nothing- like n detailei description is attempted, and in bu few instances are the names o;'the deo given. '' .-....It is. inferred from this that a ma jority of those killed outside of Ccda Jicys and the points at which schoo children were victims were negroes employed on the turpentine-forms. Workmen K'" ;ipo<l by Tottering Wall!. - Washington, Oct. 2.—Advices received bytlie weather bureau indicate that the threatened Potomac flood will be uvcrt- ed. and that the river here has reached its highest point, except as it may be (•lightly increased by the next tide. At three o'clock Friday morning the back water from the river filled some of the cellars on Pennsylvania"avenue to a-depth of nearly a foot, but subsequently receded.

Indianapolis, .Ind., Oct. 2.—The supreme court has handed down a decision of importance to express companies, their employes and railroad companies. In hiring messengers the express companies have in their contract a clause caving themselves harmless in ease of accident or injury to the employe. Iu I urn the contracts between the express companies and railroad companies hold the railroad companies harmless in case }f accident to the employes of the express companies. The court declare* that in carrying the employes of an express company under a special contract the railroad company is not-acting as a common carrier nnd its common law liability as . such docs not attach. Keefer was in no sense a passenger nnd had none of the rights of a passenger. Hitherto these contracts have been held by many courts to be void on the ground that they were not "free.' 1 as the company recjuirad'them to be signed as a condition of giving the signer employment, and for the further reason thnt a man could notsign away the contingent rights of his lawful heirs. The decision in the court in effect establishes the freedom of contract in the cases referred to, and holds them binding- on both parties thereto. Window Clan* Worlcn Ronuine- Klwood. Ind..
