buckets suspended at the top of the light
The experiment was a success in a way

of the force of the wind. The bucket was
soon filled with water, but the water wis
salty and could not be used.
Several attempts finally resulted In secur

the thirst of the excited refugees The salt
water spray was shot skyward over 120 'feet
and mingled with the rainwater that fell in
the buckets. From the top of the li-ht

storm sufferers Mewed Ihe destructive wort

dead bodies were recovered near the lleht

GALVESTON CITY'S FUTURE.
New York. Sept 12. The view taken by
railroad men In this city to-day as to the
future of Galveston as a shipping port
was far from gloomy. In spite of the ns
sertlon that the destruction of the city
Is so complete as .to render its- rebuilding
unlikely. A. F. Walker, chairman of the
Board nf Directors of the Atchison, To
peka and Santa I'e, said that he expected
the city to be extensively rebuilt and "do
ing buincss at the old stand" within three
"Galveston will rebuild," said Mr. Walk
er, "and quickly, because the lte combines
the greatest natural advantages as a Gulf
port and has solid commercial backing.
It Is Imperative that we have n port on
the Gulf tho extent of shipping demands
It. Galveston offers. In spite of the real
handicap of her low position, the best
site, and I see no reason why it should not
be rapidly rebuilt."
Vice President Tweed of the Southern Pa
cific Railroad said that he felt sure that
the road would repair the damage done to
its properties at Galveston and go on with
the further Improvements planned. A rep
resentative of the Sablne Land and Im
provement Company (possibly biased) ex
pressed the opinion that at best it would
take Galveston two years to recover anil
be prepared to handle the shipping of the
"We are, naturally. Interested in Sabine
Pass as a Guir port," said he. "We are In
formed that, while the f-torm reached that
port, little damage was done there. Wheth
er Sabine Pas, with eight miles of deep
water frontage connecting with a S3.503.000
Government Jetty giving a minimum depth
of twenty-five feet and already- having a
heavy lumber shipping, will supplant Gal
eston or not remains to be seen."
WORK TO BE COSTLY.
Washington. Sept. 12. To protect the city
of Galveston from the ravages of future
cyclone? would be almost as costly as to
re-establish the city on a new site.
This Is the opinion of eminent engineers
To Insure the maintenance of the channel
It has been necessary to erect Jetties which
have con more than .000.X. The Utiles.

dead bodies of hundreds of human beings.
the c&rcasscs or norses, cows, ciogs uou
chickens, and the rottenlrg cabbage, the

fruit ot every kind add to the odor and
almost defy invasion by relief parties. ;

are to be found bodies nnd housenold gooas
of all kinds, stapes, sizes and quality, from
the kltchin stove lid to the ery finest
vases with which the people had adorned
their parlors. Handsome pictures are to bo
found Ivlng alongside an ice cream freezer,
and resting beside the nude llgurt! or some

"The great masses of debrlt are not con
fined to any one particular stclion of tho
elty. The cruel waters of the Gulf and Un
winds pnr! no one nnd few portions of
the Island. Wh'rllng house around in Its
grusp. It piled their shattered frames high
In confusing mosses and dumped their con
tents on top.
"Human beings were thrown around like
n many logs or wood and left to rot in the.
withering sun. 1 believe that with the very
best exertions of men It will require weeks'
to secure even semb'anee of physical order
In the e-itv. and It is doubtful even then if
all the debris will be disposed of.

"I never saw such a wreckage in my life.
Prom the gulf front to the center of the
lland. from the ocean back, the storm wave
held high revelry, and left death nnd de
struction In Its wake. So complete was the
wreckage. . . . . ,
"There is hardly a family on the island
whose home Is not short a member or two,
nnd. in some Instances, entire families
have been wlpd awav or killed. Hundreds
who escaped from the waves only did so
l fall victims to a worse fate by being
crushed to death bv falling buildings. Down
In tho businoss portion of the city the foun
dations of great buildings have given away,
carrying towering structures to their rain.
Those ruins, falling across the streets,
formed barricades on which gathered all
the floating debris and the human bodies.
"Many of thest. bodies were stripped of
their clothing by the water and wind and
there was nothing to protect them from the

bodies are In condition unlit to handle for

conervativc men on the Island place th.-

and possibly 13.0").
"The live stock on tho Island has been
completely annihilated. Every Interest on
the Island has suffered. Not one has es
caped. From the great dock company to
tho humblest Individual, the !os has been
felt and H in many instances irreparable.
In cases where houses have been left
standing the entire contents are damaged."
