S'au Antonio, Tex., Sept. 9. The startling news has just flashed over the
wires from Houston Informing Governor J. I). Savers that a messenger, at
great risk to his life, has reached Virginia Point from Galveston with the re
port that -r.oo a m probably be the number of dead as the result of the fearful
storm of Saturday. The message came with an urgent appeal to all Texas for
help, and the startling situation was briefly wired to Governor Sayers.
According to this messenger, grain elevators at the water front are wrecked
and hundreds of buildings have collapsed or were carried out to sea, and the
greatest distress is said to prevail. It Is Impossible to give anything like an
authentic statement, but the messenger was Instructed to say that Galveston's
dead probably will number 2,500.

Memphis, Tenn., Sept 9. A special to the Commercial Appeal from New
Galveston was struck by a tidal wavo and the loss of life there was be
tween 000. and 3,000.
Every effort Is being made out of Xew Orleans to get telegraphic or cable
communication with the wrecked city, but to Httle avail. One message was re
ceived this evening fixing the loss of life at 2,500. It came by cable from Vera
Cruz, and later was confirmed In a general way.

Is appalling. The Island city has been all

Many bodies are floating In the bay, while

Mr. Tlmmlns chartered a tug and left
Galveston at noon to-day. His story of
death and destruction spread terror here
'among thousands of people 'Who have rela
tives or friends In Galveston.
Mr. Tlmmlns nearly collapsed when he ar
rived, but the following brief story was ob
tained from him before ha was forced to
seek a room or rest:
Hurricane UtEHB Saturday.
"From early yesterday morning a hurri
cane began raging at Galveston, and soon
the waters of the gulf and bay began en
croaching on the town. By night the water
was all over the city, and at 9 o'clock It
stood five feet deep in many of tho princi
pal streets. The floor of Tjemont Hotel,
the principal hotel of the city, was threo
feet under water at 9 o'clock last night.
"The wind blew furiously, and houses,
residences and business buildings went dowii
before the gale.
"When the sun rose this morning it cast
Its rays over a sight that would send terror
to the heart of the strongest man living.
Four thousand houses were wrecked, and
-t least 1.000 dead and missing. In fact. Jt
1 my positive belief that the number of
dead alone will reach 1.000.
"Bodies He In the streets under wreckage.
In alleys and In partly dismantled hojse.
The laborer, the capitalist, rich and poor,
yielded up their lives to tho awlul fury of
the storm. Every member of one of the
oldest and most prominent families of the
dty was killed.
"Men, women and children were hurled
into eternity In an Instant, and a once beau
tiful and prosperous city was made a
ragged, ghastly charneI-houe of un
shrouded and unburied dead.
"I am an old man, and I have never read
the story of a disaster more terrible than
this has been at Galveston. The property
loss will run Into the millions, hundreds of
people being left entirely homeless and even
City Institutions Gone.
It was reported when Mr. Timraons left
Galveston, that tho orphan nsylum and both
the hospitals had been destroyed, and if
this proves true tho loss of life will bo
great, as these Institutions were generally
crowded, and as they were substantlAl
buildings, the chances are that many had
taken refuge In them.
The water had extended across the island.
Mr. Tlmmlns said It was three feet deep in
the rotunda of the Tremont Hotel and was
six feet deep In Market street.
Along the water front the damage was
very great. The roofs had been blownfrom
all the elevators, and the sheds along tho
wharves were cither wrecked or had lost
their sides and were of no protection to
their contents. Most of the small sailing
craft were wrecked and were either piled
up on the wharves or floating bottom-sldo
up In tho bay.
There Is a small steamship ashore three
mites north of Pelican Island, but Mr. Tlm
mlns could not distinguish her name. She

AND THE DIRECTION IT IS NOW TAKING.
Washington. Sept. 9. Doctor IL C. Frankenfield, forecast ofllcial of the
Weather Bureau, gave to-night an account of the West India hurricane now
traeling north through Texas.
"Tho first sign of the storm," said Doctor Frankcnflcld. "was noticed August
30, near the Windward Islands, about latitude IS degrees north, longitude 63 de
"By. the morning of September 6 the storm center was a short dlstanco
northwest of Key West. Fla.. and the high winds had comenced over Southern
Florida, forty-eight miles an hour from the east being reported from Jupiter,
and forty miles from tho northest from Key West.
"Advisory messages were sent as early as September 1 to Key West and the
Bahama Islands, giving warning of the approach of the storm, and advising
caution to all shipping. These warnings were supplemented by others on the
Id, 3d and 4th, giving moro detailed Information, and were gradually extended
along the Gulf coast as far as Galveston, and the Atlantic coast to Norfolk.
"During the Cth. barometlc conditions over the eastern portion of the United
States so far changed as to prevent the movement of the storm along the Atlan
tic coast, and It, therefore, continued northwest over the Gulf of Mexico. On
the morning of the Tth It was apparently central south of tho Louisiana coast,
about longitude 2S, latitude S3. ,
"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 Sth
the storm was nearing the Texas coast and was apparently central at about
latitude 28. longitude 31.
"The last report received from Galveston, dated J:40 p. m., September 8, show
ed a barometlc pressure of -3.22 Inches, with a wind of forty-two 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 that nothing has been heard."
The latest reports come from Fort Worth, and show that the storm center Is
located In the vicinity of that city. The wind thero Is blowing at the rate of
forty-five miles an hour, and heavy rains aro falling. The course of the storm
Is nt present due north. This Indicates that It has made a curve since striking
Galveston, as Us direction was then northwest. Weather Bureau officials are
very reluctant to make predictions concerning tho future of this storm, owing to
the lack of information. It was stated, however, that two courses are open to it.
Ono to the Upper Mississippi Valley and one to the Ohio Valley. Tho chances
are that the former direction will be the

Houston. Tex., Sept. 0. News of a dreadfnl nature comes from Sabine Fass,
a flourishing port at the mouth of tho Sabine River.
The best authenticated reports s,ay that the entire town has. been swept
away by a tidal wave, and that the loss of life is practically commensurate with

Austin, Tex., Sept. 3. From Bed Biver
on tho north to the Gulf on the south, and
throughout the central part of the State,
Texas has been storm-swept during tho
last thirty hours by a hurricane, which
has laid waste property Interests, caused
large loss of life and effectually blocked all
telegraphic and telephone communication
south of here, while the operation of trains
has been seriously handicapped.
Starting with tho hurricane which vis
ited Galveston and the Gulf Coast Satur
day noon, and which Is still prevailing
thero to such an extent that no communi
cation can be had with the Island to ascer
tain what the loss to life and property,
the storm made rapid Inroads Into the
center of the State, stopping long enough
last ninght at Houston to damage over halt
of the buildings of that city.
Advancing Inland the storm swept into
the towns of Hempstead, fifty miles above
Houston, .thence to Chappell Hill, twenty
miles further, thence to Brenham, thirty
mlle further, wrecking all three towns
and terrorizing the people beyond expres
sion. The storm was so destructive at these
points as to blow over quite a number of
houses, and several persons were killed.
Owing to the destruction of the telegraph
and long-distance telephone wires. It is
dillicult to get news from any of the
points named, but It Is known that the
loss to both property Interests and to live
etock as well as life, has been great.
