A cyclone, btieh ns Is frequently en
countered In tho West, but of a kind
probably never known before In tho
history of Aliunde cities, descended
Upon Philadelphia, Camden and the
river between them a few minutes after
3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. In
traversing lla course, which ran from
Greenwich Point. Northeast across the
Delaware, through tho Western section
of Camden, across Potty's Island and
thcuco Into and beyond Port Itlchmond
as far as tho Huntingdon Valley, It. oc
cupied nob mure than ten minutes of
time. In that, period It killed four per
sons. Klfty-elght moro are wounded
and many ot these will die. Five
others mo missing. Five vessels are
wiceked. Hundreds ot people have
been rendered homuli'ss, and hun
dreds moro aro ruined by a calamity
for the havoc ot which there Is no
Nobody In Philadelphia or Camden
knows at Just what locality tlio great
pillar ot wind was formed. The men
on tho bleamers, schooners and tugs
passing or lying oil' Greenwich Point
ilrst saw It Inland about 3:15 p. m. It
looked like n column of cloud rising
from the marshes. Tho traveling col
umn of llylng cloud was attended on
either side by bits of Hying cloud that
kept whirling with trcmoudous velocity.
The commotion among the shipping
along the wharves wa3 great and tho
damage considerable. Tho tide rose to
an extraordinary height, and In many
places overflowed tho wharves.
Soon after 3 o'clock the great shed at
Dialogue's Delaware ltlver Iron works,
a mile and a half above, at Atlantic
avenue, Camden, was laid Hat, and tlio
roof ot Bamfort's Hotel, hard by, sailed
into the air.
The foreman at tho American Dredg
ing Company's works saw the blackness
to the southward and heard a uoisu llko
thu whirring of a thousand eagles' wings
approaching. "Get out, men, or you'll
bo killed," he yelled. Charles B. Daisy,
CO years old, was caught in tho whirl
wind and when they found hhn across
the yard tho wind had killed him, dug
his grave and half covered him with
earth. Thciewnsa frozen teiror on
his dead face that made men sick to
see. Harry Stovoas ran for the yard
gate. Tho wind caught It as lie readied
there. Tho ponderous wooden thing
seized ids tight leg and fairly pinched
lb oil against the gato post, leaving tho
severed limb below tho kuco on ono
side and tho dripping thltih on tho other.
Late last night tho man was reported
John Matthews, a colored man from
Baltimore, was hurled to tho ground
and left with a dislocated hip. Harry
Smith, iv youth ot li), was caught by
tlio wind while lleelng and hurled 100
yards, and left In tho mud of the marsh
to the noith of tho works. A gunning
skill' which lay at tho wharf was blown
clear across the samo swamp and splin
tered to plccesagalnst the Pennsylvania
Railroad Company's docks. Tho big
machine shop of tho Dredging Company
was totally wrecked.
When tho storm struck tho round
house of tlio Pennsylvania, at tiio foot
of Stevens street, it fell In llko a pack
et cards on the polished brass and shin
ing woodwork of seven engines which
had been run iu there. The storm was
fairly In Camden now, and people ran
shrieking through the streets for shel
ter, ono shouting as lie dashed past the
Courier olllce, "Tho last day lias come!"
A darkness not as of midnight, but of
gloomy twilight, lied before tlio wind
abovo tho stricken town.
The tornado had hardly been two
minutes hi reaching tlio centre of tho
town. The scene it created in that
tlmo will haidly be witnessed again till
crack o' doom. Huge trees upturn,
with sections of brick pavement cling
ing to their roots, were scattered every-
icre. Teiegrapu poles ovcrturown,
with a score of wires clinging to each,
iniido the streets impassable Roofs and
timbers were sailing in tlio air, and wo
men and children running from shat
tered houses were shrieking with terror.
Awning and lamp-posts were twisted
into fantastic shapes, as It by lire.
Soon after tho excursion steamer
Major Rcybold left tho whiul the tor
nado was seen approaching.
"I began to feel very anxious 'and
apprehensive," s'dd Captain Reynold,
who commanded her, "when I saw that,
but there was not much chance to
think about what had bitter he done.
Almost before 1 could say anything tho
big black column was on us. Suddenly
it irrow black as nicht in the pilot
house. Tho terrible wind seemed to
come from all sides at once. I looked
over toward Townsend and saw his
deatldv white face shlniiiis iu the dark
ness. I was afraid ho would I030 his
nerve and called to him as loud an I
"'For God's s-ake, Tmvuioud, hold
fast to that wheel.'
"The wind roared so I don't believe
ho heaid mo at all. Just then thu tim
bers began to crack, and iu another In
stant wo went overboard with the pilot
house." Kortilnatcly tho passengers weio
mostly on tlio main deck. The boat
careened under tho heavy strain. Thero
was crash after crush. The consterna
tion amont: tlio passengers was fright
ful. They huddled together around the
engine-room with blanched faces. No
voice could ho heard abovo tho howling
'of tlio wind and tho rattle of tho rain.
In a second or two a last tremendous
crash enmo and tho whole of the upper
cabin wont by tho board. A second or
two later tho darkness began lo clear
and tlio boat righted. The cyclone had
passed on to lurtiiui won; oi uestruo
