Galveston, the public mind nnd attention
has. for the time being, almost lost sight
of that other afflicted section, known as
the coast country, and extending from tho
mouth of tho Brazos northwestwardly to
the mouth of the Sabine, a distance of
over 1D0 miles', and Into the Interior of tho
State almost an eiual distance.

suffered an largo a percentage of wreckage

being tho four eastern towns of Sablno

Practically all the energies of the people
have been bent toward the relief of Gal

EVERY MAX WHO IS

The presence of the troops has had a ben

LITTLE SO FAR DONE

The city still presents tho appearance of
widespread wreck and ruin. Llttlo has

Some of them arc littered with elebrls.
Others are so thickly covered with slime
that walking on them Is out of the eruvs

Tho appearance of tho newspapers to-day,

the Tribune are urging prompt succoring

effect of the disaster Is to be on the city.
Many -of the people have left and somo may

cltlzens, tho people of Galveston, will
despair, nor that their energy will over
come their present depression. We feel
convinced that American manhood, which
so readily adjusts Itself to adversity, will
assert itself in the hard trial which Provi

Their city, once so fair and commercially
supreme, will, we trust, again rise rhoenlv

ALL WAITING TO HEAR
WHAT RAILROADS WILL DO.
What Is most bothering business men at
present is what attitude the railroad, and
especially the Southern Paeilie. are to as
sume with lespect to reconstruction. The
decision of the transportation lines will do
moro than anything else to restore contl
dnce. Big shiis, new arrivals, rode at anchor
to-day in ftont of the city. They had Just
re-ached tho port and found the docks and
pier el.imago so widespread that no ac
commodation could Ik- given to them.

The destruction of the bridges of all tho
railroads entering tho city makes It well

only a few concerns who operate their own

Among tho worst sufferers by the disaster
wero the churches. Nearly every one of
them felt tho effect of tho storm. Somo of
them are wrecked beyond repair.
Tho wcrk of relief continues. Mayor Jones
