AROUND THE METROPOLIS.
New York Did Not Get the rail Force
of the Hurricane.
New York, August 29. New York
did not catch the full force of the hur
ricane that swept up along the North
Atlantic coast this morning. It had
left death and devastation in its path,
sweeping through the South, and sev
eral lives were lost in New York and
Though the wind blew with a fury
that has not been known here since the
blizzard of 1S88 comparatively small
damage was done. The greatest suf
fering brought to New York was, by its
isolation from the rest of the country,
north and south, east and west, lor the
storm was so general that when busi
ness hours came yesterday morning
rapid communication with outside
points was impossible.
New York escaped the hurricane, be
cause, after its center had carried
havoc to Savanah and other places on
the Atlantic Coast, 11 turned westward,
passing over Lynch burg, Va. Then it
passed due north. Its contact with
the earth decreased its fury. Its course
was on the west side of the Blue Ridge,
which did much to avert its violence in
this vicinity. New York only caught
the eastern segment of it, but still many
houses in this city are unroofed or de
molished and wires of all descriptions
are broken. Long Island and the
lersey shore resorts suffered more than
from the storm last week. Several
wrecks on the water are reported, and
when the torm abates others are ex
pected to be heard from. Railroad
communication between Jersey shore
resorts and Philadelphia has been cut
At Philadelphia two deaths by elec
tricity occurred this morning as a re
sult of the storm. The I )elaware river
was higher than for years, and the
wharves and structures along the river
front of Philadelphia were flooded,
and considerable damage resulted.
The dry docks of the ( ramps' ship
yards were damaged to the extent of
$10,000 by the high tide.
Heavy damage was done to property
at New Haven, Conn., by the storm.
Shade trees went down and chimneys
and roofs were blown off in profusion.
The oyster beds are thought to be al
most entirely ruined. Telegraph!) and
telephone communication have betn
wanimu all day. I he Iruit orchards uf
Connecticut suffered much-, some were
The Oruiser Olympia.
Yesterday afternoon the Olympia
was out for one of her engineers' trial
trips, and the way she slid along by the
front of the city indicated the posses
sion of a high rale of speed, from the
shore it was impossible to more than
guess at the rate at which she was
going, but as sne 1 utiie from the direc
tion of Red roi k toward Mission bay It
was evident that it would have taken
an OCdn racer to overhaul her.
In the Olympia the Navy Depart
ment abandoned its I irmer notion ol
leijuiring a specified rate ol speed under
certain conditions, I his, it is obvious
is the only sensible plan, lor in a vessel
built for speed the requirement should
be speed, not a certain engine-power
from which a preconceived rate of
speed may be theoretically developed.
If a cruiser can steam twenty knots an
hour for four hours consecutively the
Government need not concern itself
with whether she shows 1000 horse
power or 10,000, or any given amount.
Yesterday s trip was only for the
purpose of testing the machinery,
