Secretary Scandrett Talks
About the Local Team.
MOERIS MAY BE RELEASED.
New and Good Pitchers to Be Secnred
at Any Cost.
NEW BROTHERHOOD CRITICISED.
Ton Der Ahe Will be Compelled to Pay His
GENERAL BASEBALL NEWS OF THE DAI
Secretary Scandrett. of the local ball
club, talked significantly yesterday about
chances to be made in the team. Morris
maybe released at once. Mr. Scandrett
also criticised the new brotherhood scheme.
President Wikoff states that Ton der Ahe
must pay 53,000 fine for his Brooklyn fun.
Eain stopped all the ball games.
Secretary Scandrett stated definitely yes
terday afternoon that some very important
changes will be made in the local ball
team at the close of the season, if not before
it The Secretary and directors have now
become thoroughly convinced that the
pitching power of the team is not much bet
ter than worthless. He talked very point
edly on the matter and said:
"Just before the season opened every base
ball authority in the country declared that
Pittsburg had the best pitching force in the
country. We all seriously believed this, but
we were sadly disappointed before the first
week of the season had passed by. After ono
or two games we only had one pitcher that we
could rely on, and the team has not been much
better than that during the whole season. I
don't think that the team has been in its best
condition for more than ten games during the
entire season. Of course 1 do not blame any
one in particular lor this, but it has been very
unfortunate and costly.
SOME BIG CHANGES.
"It means that we'll make some big changes
when tbe season is over. It would seem useless
to begin with the changes now."
"How about Moms?" was asked.
"Well, Ed's wort has fallen considerably be
low expectation and I don 't see that he is
at present worth anything to the club. I don't
want to commit myself on any feature of the
matter to-day, and therefore, I am not in a po
sition to talk about whether or not he will be
released when the club comes borne. We can
not make any money this season and I will be
content to quit even."
A call was made on I resident Nimick but ho
was too busy to talk about baseball affairs. It
was stated on good authority, ho ever, that
Morris is to be released w hen the club returns
from the East. The gentleman who made this
statement said: "Morris will be released un
conditionally if no club makes an offer for
him. It is likely, however, that if none of tbe
clubs in the big organizations want him some
of the minor leagues may be disposed to offer
a price for him. At any rate it is safe to say that
HE WILL BE BELEASED.
He has been a very disappointing man this
season, and the general opinion is that his good
pitching days are over.
President Nimick is inclined to give Alexan
der Jones, tbe Homestead left-handed pitcher,
a trial. A conference between tbe player and
President was arranged for yesterday after
noon, but if it took place Mr. "imick declined
to say so. Neither would the officials say
whether or not Jones was to be sent on to
Washington. It is, however, very probable
that Jones will he giTen a try, and if he does
anything like good work he will be reserved for
next season. It may be remarked, however,
that the local club has not given much en
couragement to young pitchers lately. Lots of
them have been signed, but after making one
or two poor displays have been cast adrift
again. Few have been kept long enough to
test them thoroughly. It is also a fact that,
while the local club has been experimenting at
a costly rate with cheap youngsters, other clubs
have come to Pittsburg and secured at reason
able prices such excellent pitchers as&umbert,
Tener and Baldwin.
IX MIGHT HAVE BEES.
It these three borne men were now in tbe
local team what a power the; would be. The
local officials stated that a big price was paid
for Sowders, and he has yet to prove that he is
a success. If matters had been rightly
managed any or all of tbe three local pitchers
named could have been secured for nothing,
and any one of them is pitching considerably
better ball than Sowders.
After talking about the affairs of the local
club Secretary Scandrett expressed himself on
the new Brotherhood scheme, as proposed by
Mr. Johnson, of Cleveland, and John M. Ward.
The Secretary said: "I never heard ot such a
foolish thing in my life. Why, such a scheme
is almost impossible. For instance, if tho
players have to divide the receipts how will
they ever agree. Buck Ewing would want con
siderably more than a catcher like Fields, and
the latter would want just as much as any
body. Who would decide the argument?
Johnny Ward would also want more than lots
of other good men and they would want just
as much as him.
THEY COULDN'T AGKEE.
They would never agree, simply because the
men now receiving big salaries would want the
same advantage in the new organization. Bat
the people talking about organizing new clubs
have no idea what the cost of a club is. It
takes $80,000 a year to run the Pittsburg club
and who would put up that amount of money
to place a second club in this city. I ventut c to
say that 30.000 could not be obtained, and that
snm would be much too small. The fact is that
no new organization could pay the salaries that
such men as Dunlap, Ewing, Keefe, Clarkson
and Ward are receiving. I look upon the
scheme as Utopian, and I am surprised that
people can entertain any serious notions in
favor of it. To put it into operation would re
quire men in every city selected to have as
much money to put up as the Johnson Bros, are
alleged to have."

NewYoek, September 1L There was no
game of ball at Washington Park to-day be
cause of the rain. President Byrne Informed
Mr. Von der Ahe by telegraph at 1 o'clock this
morning, thus saving the St. Louis club a net
journey to Brooklyn. The Browns will leave
the city to-night for Philadelphia.
So far the St. Louis club is getting the worst
of the recent squabble. Tbe following letter
was received by President Byrue to-day, which
is a duplicate of a similar document sent to
every club in the American Association:

Baltimore, September 1L Ex-Umpire Ke
rins is very indignant because of the statement
that he had been approached by a Brooklyn
player to throw games against the St. Louts
club. He pronounces tbe story a fabrication
from beginning to end, and avers his readiness
to appear before the American Association at
its meeting next Saturday and testify as to the
facts in the case.
His storv is that while umpiring one of tbe
St. Louis-Brooklyn games in St. Lonis. Charley
O'Brien, of the Brooklyns, incidentally re
marked that he would willingly give $100 out of
his pocket if his club -would defeat St. Louis.
It was after this, while illustrating O'Brien's
earnestness and desire to defeat the Browns,
that Kerins repeated this remark to Comisky,
never thinking that the latter would put upon
it the construction that a bribe had been
offered. Kerins feels very bitter against Co
misky, whom he blames for spreading tbe

A Pittsbnrg Pugilist Goes to New Tori to Fiffht an
John A, St. John, the backer ot Gaudaur, 1
arrived in the city last evening. He said
many interesting things abont the race and
other aquatic events. Bain interfered with
the grand circnit races at Albany, and Ed
Annan won the pace. Some New York
sporting men have taken a local pugilist to
New York to match him to fight.
John A. St. John, the backer of Gaudaur
for to-morrow's boat race, arrived in the
city last evening from St. Louis. The
popular and plucky patron of aqnatic
sports never looked better and was in the
most cheerful mood. He comes here full of
confidence relative to Gaudaur's victory to
morrow. He talked quite freely and inter
estingly about tbe race, and about rowing gen
erally. Regarding to-morrow's ra ce, he said:
"Of course I think Gandanr will win, and I
have good reasons for thinking so. Teemer
must have Improved a minute in three miles to
beat Gaudaur. I had the latter row two trials
for me before he left St. Louis, and he showed
a remarkable improvement. In one instance
he rowed a mile, and for Tialf that distance he
rowed at the rate of 36 per minute, and be
finished the mile at 34. I am confident that be
will show tbe public some speed on Friday. I
say this because we are not betting a dollar on
the race. I don't want to bet, and if Gandaur
wins he gets the $1,000. lam anxious that the
race be a fair one, and that nobody outsiders
Interfere with the rowers. I am also sorry to
hear that Teemer is not likely to get his new
boar. I would, indeed, like to see him get
everything that will enable him to row his very
best, so that, if he is beaten, he will have no
excuse. I think
GAUDAUR CA1T BEAT HOI.
"Indeed, I have always inclined to the belief
that Teemer has been a slightly overrated
man. I say this in no disrespect to Teemer, but
I merely express my opinion as a reason why I
deom Gaudaur a better rower than he is. Peo
ple should not at all feel sore at Teemer be
cause be was beaten by O'Connor. I lost money
on Teemer that day, and I was convinced that
be was beaten fairly. Friday's race is for
blood, and I think we'll win it. At any rate
Gaudaar will make a tremendous effort to
Referring to the Searle-O'Connor race, Mr.
St. John said; "It seems to me tbat O'Connor
was beaten on his merits. Searle, no doubt, is
a great sculler, but I am prepared to match
Gaudaur against him on American waters,
whether we win Friday's race or not A party
of gentlemen in St. Louis, in consequence of
my efforts to popularize professional sculling,
have informed me tbat they will join me in
raising a stake for Gaudaur to row Searle. If
this is done our loss will be small, even though
Gaudaur is beaten. I do not attach much im
portance to a victory or deleat on the Thames.
Certainly not as much as I do to victory or de
feat here. At any rate we are ready to tackle
Searle if be Cumes here. When Hanlan was
returning from Australia he visited me at St.
Louis, and he stated that Searle was undoubt
edly the most wondcrf nl rower that ever got in
a boat. 'I replied to him to tbe effect tbat if
that was so for him to back Searle forme at
HANLAN CHANGED HIS MIND.
"When Hanlan got home,however,and heard
O'Connor's friends talk, he wrote me to the
effect that he was not so sure about Searle be
ing able to beat O'Connor, and later still Han
lan definitely predicted tbat O'Connor jWould
win. However, we can find a man for Searle."
Mr. St. John is engaged in organizing a pro
fessional rowing association that, if founded
on the principles suggestedby "him,- will prob
ably elevate that good and exciting sport to its
former and honorable level. His plan in brief
is to have all the leading professional rowers
in America join tbe organization, and hold a
series ot regattas every year. He said: "For
instance, if we had 12 of the best rowers in the
country we could have 12 starters in the single
sculls; six in tbe doubles or pairs, and three in
the fours. My idea is to make the distance
lor the singles a quarter of a mile, and every
contestant to wear brilliant colors, and that
his boat and sculls be tbe same color as his
costume. This would make an imposing sight
and an exciting race, because of tbe short dis
tance. If 12 men started in a race like tbat, all
in one heat, who could pick the winner T
IT WOULD ELEVATE ROWING.
The distance for the doubles would be a
quarter of a mile and return, and for the fours
a half mile and return. Regattas of this kind
would keep the professionals much better than
they are being kept now. Besides the associa
tion would demand honest racing in all re
spects, and if any member was discovered act
ing crooked, he would be expelled and not an
other member would be allowed to row against
bim under any circumstances. I have written
all the leading rowers on the matter and they
are willing to pay an initiation fee at once, and
attend a meeting to have tbe organization per
fected. I think it will be a go. I have
the bye-laws and constitution ready to
submit to a meeting. Of course Fred
Plaisted would have to be a member.
Fred made me laugh the other day by a letter
be had sent me relative to a regatta they are
arranging at Portland. He says the course is
in front of numerous residences and some of
the occupants are subscribing to the regatta
ard some are not. Here's how he figures it:
Brown is a good man and he gives $25: bis
neighbor, Jones, gives nothing. Further down
Smith gives J15 and still further down Robin
son gives nothing. At the end Clark gives $50.
Now when the rowers pass tbe $25 door they
row well and slack off in front the 'nothing'
residence. They put on a little steam in front
ot the $15 man's house and float past tbe next
mean and at tho $50 point they make a grand
rally. Plaisted is still Plaisted."
O'Connor Tttlka About His Defeat He
Ready for Tcemer.
Loudon, September 1L Talk about the big
boat race is still going on. Tbe Kanueks are a
depressed crowd, and tbe Australians are not
O'Connor says that before tbe first mile was
rowed bo felt that he was not at his best. The
mishap to his right scull he blamed qn the
choppy water, but his defeat he laid to over
training. His arms seemed to have lost their
power. He is a temperate man, and even while
doing nothing does not take on much flesh. He
was trained just as hard as if ho had been fat,
inead of in fair condition. Before he went
into training he weighed only 162 pounds,
h hereas he ought to have weighed at feast 1G7
pounds. He was too light several days before
the day of tbe race, and had reached such a
stage that be could not take on flesh even
while cutting down his work. O'Connor, when
it was suggested to him that be would have
Teemer and his old rivals to conquer again,,
said, "I can do that easily enough."
Joseph Kogers, wno DacKea uuonnor, taKes
the defeat of his man quietly. He admits that
Searle was the faster man of the pair.
Searle took up a collection for the defeated
TO-MORROWS BOAT RACE.
All Arrangements Made for the Big Event
iUoney for Gnadnur.
Public Interest in to-morrow's boat race be
tween Gaudaur and Teemer is exceedingly
great. Yesterday a prominent sporting man
tried to charter a yacht so that himself and
friends could accompany the race, but the
yachts were all engaged already. There will
be a good supply of steamers, however. Cap
tain Clark alone will have the Twilight and a
barge that will accommodate 1,000 people.
Other boats will leave tbe McKeesport wharf.
The race will be rowed promptly between
430 and 5 P. M. without fail, unless rough water
causes a postponement, and that will hardly
occur. The men both claim to be in the con
dition they desired to be.
It is expected that about 5.000 mill men will
make Friday the short working day of tbe
week in order to seethe race. But few persons
will be allowed in the referee's quarters on the
referee boat and they will be representatives
of tbe press, tbe reason being tbat a crowd of
20 or even less occupying the referee's quarters
would Interfere too much to permit that
gentleman from fulfilling his duty to the best
of his ability or as is required.
In local betting circles last evening Gaudaur
seemed to be most fancied. One gentleman
called at this office last evening, making
Inquiries for Teemer's money.

ICFECIAL TELEGRAM TO TUB DISPATCH.!
Albant. September 11. Everything seemed
opposed to, the continuation of the Grand Cir
cuit meeting at Island Park this afternoon.
About 11 o'clock this forenoon rain fell, and up
to 2 o'clock it looked as if the races would hare
to be postponed. Then it cleared up, and as
tho course was not injured by the wetting
there was no more trouble on tbe score of
weather. The people were wanting, however,
aud it was a modest sized crowd that assem
bled. Then the fields of starters were mate
rially reduced, all but Aline declaring out in
the 233 trot, so that this event had to be struck
off the programme. This placed the whole
burden of furnishing amusement on tho pacers,
and as it turned out the field of four were
equal to occupying the entire afternoon, six
heats being necessary to a final decision. It
was by no means a flrst-class contest, though,
for the favorite, Ed Annan, let the other three
light for the three first heats, when be could
hafe been sent aldng to end the affair much
sooner. This was evident from the fact that
the time was not beyond what Annan is capa
ble of, and that he sold at 5 to 1 over tbe lot in
pools after the third heat, when he had not
been better than third. When he was cut
loose be bad the easiest kind of a victory, so
that those who invested in the mutualsand
books on previous heats 'had anything hut a
drive for their money.
The contest fpr second place was the most in

Her driver had been ordered down, and Thos.
Grady, a local trainer, was put up. He kept
well np with Annan till he used the whip, his

pressed into the service. He had no better

LOUISVILLE'S GREAT PROSPECTS.
Large Fields of tbe Best Horses Expected
at tho Fall Meeting;.
Louisville, Ky., September 1L The
Louisville Jockey Club has everything in read
iness for the best autumn meeting held over its
course in years. Colonel Clark inaugurated
tbe straight chute business in America, and
has the safest and best track of tbat character
in tbe country, but tbe public has always
kicked against racing on the chute, as tbe
finish is all that can be witnessed by the
crowd. To avoid this the back stretch of the
Louisville Club has been widened to 130 feet,
which makes it wider than any track in the
country, and thereby insures equal chances in
starting large fields of horses, giving satis
faction to starter, owner and the public. The
grounds have never been in such perfect order,
and tbe horsemen are responding nobly.
All indications point to the best meeting held
in years. Horses are arriving from all sections
of the country. Saratoga, New York, Chicago,
St. Louis, Memphis, Nashville, Latonia and
Lexington, and Woodford county, and the
course is alive with thoroughbreds. Lester, A.

A NIGHT OF TERROR,
Continued from First Page.
the foolhardiness of their undertaking and
they decided on a retrograde movement.
Their engines were plowing through two to
four feet of water which threatened every
moment to put out the fires, and as 'there
was a veritable sea ahead, there was no al
ternative but to return.
A BETEEAT NECESSARY.
So the engines were reversed and the trip
back begun, now doubly hazardous because
of the fact that the waters had risen several
inches. Hardly a furlong had been covered,
however, when the fires were extinguished
by tbe running torrents of water which now
dashed against the cars with terrific force,
breaking the .windows and completely en
veloping the trains in sheets of spray. '
The conductors went from car to car and
shouted themselves hoarse to the effect that
relief trains had been telegraphed for. When
they did come it took a mighty effort to pull
the beleaguered trains over the sunken and
twisted tracks, and it was 3 o'clock in the after
noon before the last train load of weary pas
sengers was pulled slowly into the Camden and
Atlantic depot. ,
Guests at ine ucean hotels were badly fright
ened. Tho thought of spending another night
in such close proximity to the waves unnerved
them, and as night again approached and the
storm raged with even greater fury, they made
hasty preparations, to leave their hostelrles.
There was a stampede to the Atlantic avenue
hotels and ere the shades of night had fallen
the big ocean front hotels were deserted ana
the Atlantic avenue houses filled to overflow
ing. The demand for vehicles were so urgent
that as high as $25 was offered for a trip not ex
ceeding two squares.
With Tuesday morning's flood tide the waves
swept the coast with destrnctiveness that was
appalling. Whole squares of the boardwalk
were thrown high into the air, the shattered
timbers falling down in a shower of infinitesi
mal pieces; pavilions, bath houses, booths and
other buildings were raised bodily and carried
out to sea ut mrown on me Deacn in a mass oi
ruins; on the inner side of the boardwalk large
three-story houses were quickly undermined
and fell into the bailing surf into fragments,
and stout bulkheads were shattered and the
heavy timbers cast about as if they were match
Ignoring the inlet, the most notable damage
was at the iron pier. Portions of this costly
structure were swept away. The new switch
back, which was built recently close to tho
Eier.was torn to pieces, as were the shell stores,
ooths and boardwalk in the vicinity. In the
intervening space between this point and States
avenue all the photograph galleiies and stands
were wiped out. Tho new bath houses and pa
vilions belonging to the United States Hotel,
Adams & Johnson's bath bouses and pavilions,
and the handsome establishment of George W.
Jackson, all of which were reconstrncted at a
cost of many thousand dollars last spring, fell
a ready prey to the waves.
Then followed the elegantly appointed sea
side baths aud sun parlor, one of the most
beautiful and substantial structures on the
beach. It stood alone for fully an hour after
tbe other buildings around it had been demol
ished and the proprietor, Charles Evens, who
had spent 810,000 in its erection, entertained
strong hopes of its holding out, but finally it
fell with a crash.
THE EUIN COMPLETE.
Starting at Howard's pier and reaching down
to the Park baths, the ruin wrought by the
wares is complete. Mrs. Harkins' shell stores
and tbe fruit stands and booths ad
joining Smith's cottage baths, the lit
tle Brighton Restaurant, Thomas Brady's
surf baths and pavilions, George T. Bern's
bathing establishment and pavilion and the
many adjoining stands and booths were all
wrecked beyond recognition. Frem Bern's
place, just above Illinois avenue, all the way
dorn to Chelsea, hardly ten feet of the board
walk remains, and not one of the lighter struc
tures along that extensive stretch withstood
tbe attack of the sea.
From Michigan avenue down to Chelsea
there is not a beach front property of any de
scription left standing, and many buildings as
faras Pacific avenue have been undermined
anc wrecked. The Fortesque it Griffiths fly
ing horse pavilion. Bowker's concert garden
anc hundreds of buildings, including bath
hotses, photograph and shooting galleries,
sbll stores, booths and stands of every descrip
tion all went down and mingled their debris
in tie whirlpool of destruction.
Fire and water both assailed the dozen or
mrj-o buildings on the elevated area below
Tolas avenue, known as Lee's Ocean Terrace.
ThSs juts out inte the ocean, "but it was con
sidired safe from the surf. Tuesday morning's
hi h tide broke through the sea wall and dashed
ar una tue Duitdtngs in threatening volume.
They haa to be vacated. I
PIEB ALSO THERE.
At midnight, when tbe nervous hotel guests
were endeavoring to get a few honrs'rest,these
bnildings took fire. The buildings were nearly
all burned. The occupants of bouses in Medi
terranean, Baltic and Arctic avenues had held
out against the flood up to Tuesday morning.
Then tbe high tide which worked such sad
havoc along the ocean front struck their frail
dwellings and a stampede began.
In one instance a mother and father deserted
their babe in tbe cradle and on returning later
in a boat, found the little one dead. Boats
plied to and fro carrying weeping
women and terrified children from
their houses to high grounds. No
effort was made to save personal property,
so sudden and unexpected was the rise in the
flood on the meadows. Dozens of houses were
picked up bodily by tbe waves and thrown
across tbe railroad tracks or carried blocks
away from their original location. Some of
tbem were taken far out on the meadow.
Tbe yacht Alert was driven into a house tin
the Penrose track and finally stranded on the
Camden and Atlantic Railroad track. From
Pleasantville down to Atlantic City, seven
miles, tbe railroad tracks are almost entirelv
destroyed. On the West Jersey road sections
of a mile in extent are carried away out of
THE EAILBOAD LOSS.
On the Camden and Atlantioroad the water
has encroached from two to five feet, and an
occasional glimpse only can be had of tbe
tracks. On the Reading road, which has a
much higher roadbed than the others, tbe
water has undermined the tracks for miles.
Late this afternoon the meadows still had the
appearance of a raging sea, and threatened
even worse attacks on the three railroad lines.
Late on Tuesday night a steamer came ashore
opposite Arkansas avenne. The crew of the
life-saving station hurried along tbe beach
with their apparatus, but tbe waves made any
attempt at rescue impossible. Tbe colored
steward jumped overboard and was washed
ashore balf .dead. His answers were unin
telligible. Captain Bowen is of the opinion
that the steamer went to pieces during the
niffht and that her crew perished.
Fire buckets and a water cask were found on
the beach this morning inscribed with the
name "Philadoux," and there is but little
doubt that they belonged to the steamer.
ALL ALOMTHE LINE.
Tho Damage nt Asbnry Park Will Be Very
Heavy Rumors of Loss of Life The
Worst Ever Known on the
tFPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.1
Philadelphia, September 11. At As
bnrv Park, which usually Buffers compara-
Hvelv little damage, the loss to Mr. Brad
ley, who owns the pavilion and board walk,
will be very heavy. The fishing pier has
suffered the most serious damage. The
outer end has been knocked 20 feet out of
the line of the waves. The railing and seats
are mostly gone, and the flooring has been
torn up so tbat it will be impossible to walk
upon it till a new floor is laid.
Tbe pilings are gradually rasped to splinters
by the action of tho water and tbe floating
driftwood. The little house at the shore end
of the pier rocks with tbe gale, and two watch
men stationed there never leave it. All the
pavilions on the beach front of both the park
and grove have suffered. This is particularly
so with'Ross' and Lillagore's, tbe two Ocean
Grove pavilions. At the former the floor is
completely gone, and the board walk directly
west of it is covered with sand and debris.
THE LITTLE STANDS ESCAPED.
The waves have battered in the doors and the
sides of tbe bath houses, but the little stands
where fruit and candy are sold were saved by
being moved hack. At Lillagore's pavilion
even a worse state of affairs prevails. A por
tion of the roof has been torn off, a number of
tbe pilings have been knocked out by tbe drift
ing pieces of timber, and tbe floor aud railing
have gone by the board.
Since Monday evening there has been no
communication with Beach Haven. There is
an unconfirmed rumor here to-day of loss of
life in the bay from the many boats that were
caught there by tho storm. A great many
boats have been driven up tbe bay by the gale,
and are' in a heap at the long bridge. The
storm Is now as bad as at any time since it
started. Since Mopday morning there has
been no communication wbatever with Beach
Haven by rail, telegrapb or boat. It has a per
manent population of over 500, and there are.
abont 1,000 summer visitors there, more than
one-half of tbem from Philadelphia.
FEABS ABOUT BARNEOAT.
Barnegat Bay and the ocean come very close
together at Beach Haven, and it bas undeniably
suffered severely. Next to Atlantic City It is
the point on tbe Jersey coast on which the
greatest anxiety is concentrated, and where the
most damage is expected. Tbe height of the
beach, however, causes hope that there may be
no loss of life. Tbe storm is still violent, and It
is not likely tbat any one will be able to reach
Beach Haven. To do so wonld involve crossing
six miles of one of the most dangerous bays on
the coast in a dreadful storm in boats none of
which are snitable ior tbe purpose.
All the reports at this point indicate that in
its damage and results this is the worst storm
ever known on the New Jersey coast. The
railroad between Bay Head and Point Pleas
ant, np near Sea Girt and Seaside Park, or
Berkeley Arms, bas been abandoned. It Is
badly damaged. The expensive brick hotel,
tbe Berkeley Arms, is deserted and dilapidated,
with its roof blown off,and Is storm-wrecked
inside and out, though still standing. The
Seaside Park Hotel near it is badly damaged,
ana is tinea over nice a canai Doai.
CONDITION OF LONG BBANCH.
Long Branch, always a sufferer from the
ravages of the northeast storms, is in a sorry
plight. The bluff, on which is -the celebrated
drive Ocean avenue, has been losing steadily
each year. A big gap was cut in the roadway
near the West End Hotel last spring, and for 650
feet along the bluff. In nearly tho same locality,
from 5 to 25 feet of tbe roadway bas been cut
out. It is now impossible to drive along certain
portions of the avenue, and the morning light
may see further inroads upon this drive.
The road is strewn with debris torn from the
hotels and cottages along the beach front. The
seaside chapel, a chnr.cU near tbe beach, has
been badly damaged, and will probably be torn
down rather than to repair it.
WOESE THAN THE EA.ST,

Thrilling Escapes nnd Rescues
Disasters In the Bay.
t SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Baltimore, September 11. From vari
ous points along the Chesapeake Bay come
reports of disasters to vessels; but, owing to
the high winds -and heavy tide, itis impossi
ble to obtain details. Last night all steam
ers inward bound sought anchor. None of
tbem cared to brave the storm. Toward mid
night the southern part of Chesapeake Bay
was a raging sea. From Norfolk comes the
news tbat the schooner Paragon, off Back river,
was totally dismantled, and when last seen was
drifting out One sailor was clinging to the
mast, tbe rest of the crew having been washed
All telegraphic communication along tbe
Virginia coast has been cut off, and details are
as yet unattainable.
The worst reports come from Ocean City,
which is said to be under water. This cele
brated Maryland resort suffered as much if not
more than tbe Eastern watering places. The
guests were compelled to flee for their lives,
and the residents who were loath to leave their
homes were only rescned with the greatest dif
ficulty. There are only two hotels in Ocean City
Congress Hall and the Atlantic. Both are well
appointed, and during the season do a rushing
business. There were but few guests at either
when the great wave struck the town on Sun
day. Some of them at once left town, but the
On Monday night the waves were dashing
along the beach up to witbin 100 feet of Con-
fress Hall and the Atlantic Hotel. Those who
ad returned were awakened soon after mid
night to learn that tbe water was rushing into
the lower floors. They hastily gathered to
gether their belongings and hurried out by the
back way. By morning the waves were dash
ing oyer the huge caravanseries. They had
already carried away the support of tbe
porches, aud the water was pouring into the
second-story windows. Soon the furniture was
afloat, and it was only a matter of a few hours
when the buildings wonld be totally wrecked.
The cottages soon caught it, and the residents
who had stuck to their houses found, when too
late, that all escape was cut off from the main
When the news of the condition of affairs
reached Salisbury, which is only 25 miles dis
tant, a train was manned, and with strong men
started for the flooded town. When they
reached the place it was already night, and the
entire place was under water.
To reach the imprisoned residents it was
necessary to wade in up to their waists, and in
some places the water reached almost up to
their necks. Calling to the women, who were
very much frightened, to keep up their spirits,
they started out to rescue them. The work
was accomplished by a large number of stout
men joining bands and wading through the
water waist aeep. Aney nrougnt the ladles to
the cars one by one. seated on their joined
hands In this way all were saved.
A Nnmber of Pittsburgers Were Summer
Ins Along tbe Stormy Coast Telegraph
Wires Heavily Worked.
The anxiety of Pittsbureers yesterday
who bad friends along the stormy Atlantic
coast was intense. Numerous telegrams
were sent, none received, and there was mutual
distrust and fear.
Among tbe Pittsburg people at Atlantic City
areD. P. Reigbard and wife, Mrs. George
Dennlston and little son. Architect Wallace
and daughters, Miss Pernne, Philip Reymer
and family, Thomas F. Kirk, Jr., clerk of the
Mansion House: Prof. Carl Retter's family,
Joseph Eichbaum, Harry S. Paul and wife,
and Mr. Daly, nt Doty & Kennedy are at
Beach Haven. W. J. Diehl and Mrs. Ernest
Oraft and family, of the East End, are also at
Beach Haven. Mr. Diehl telegraphed tbat
they were confined to the hotel, but he didn't
think there was much danger.
At tbe present time, too, C. L. Magee, Sena
tor Rutap, George von Bonnborst, Fred
Magee, Matt Weiss. Adam Trautman, Emil
Roerstel and George Fisher are on the ocean
coming back from the continent. Adam Traut
man was very ill before he started.
A number of anxious people called at The
Dispatch office for information, but little
definite news could be given them.
In an interview yesterday evening with Su
perintendent Clark, of tbe Western Union
Telegraph Company, be said: "There has been
intense anxiety on tbe part of the Pittsburg
people to bear from their friends at Atlantic
City, Webave had an unusual large number
ot messages offered at our office, 'but in every
case, we refused them. People then sent their
messages to Philadelphia. So heavy bas the
business been tbat it throws us two boars be
hind. All communication between Philadel
phia and Atlantic City is stopped.
'The Postal Telegraph has no direct wires
with Atlantic City. The chief operator said:
"Our communication with Philadelphia has
been large to-day. People who had friends vis
iting Atlantic City sent frequent messages to
ascertain the latest news from tbe storm swept
city. We were able to send every message
without much delay."
A MAN AND WIFE LOST.
Two Persons Reported Missing In tbe
Vicinity of Cape Mny.
tSFICIAI, TELEGRAM TO TBE DISPATCH.1
Philadelphia, September 1L Telegraphic
communication with Cape May had not been
restored to-night. The trains were making
their regular trips but with the greatest
difficulty. The latest train up last evening
arrived in Camden shortly after 6 o'clock and
came heavily loaded with passengers, James
Robinson, tbe athletic trainer of. the Cape
May ball park, was one of the passengers. To
a reporter he said: "I have for years been at
tbe different resorts along tbe Atlantic coast
and at all seasons, but I have never seen a
storm so terrible in its destructive force as this
At Sewell's Polut, where the Cold Spring
Inlet is, all the yachts and small craft which
are moored there to take out parties have been
swept away, carried out into tbo ocean or scat

name of James and Annio Clark, who live In a
small bouse built over the water, are missing.
Their little house has been obliterated. Clark
was tbe Captain ot a popular little yacht named
May. Several relief parties have set out to
find Clark and wite,b ut ail attempts so far have
failed. These are the only people who are
missing at that point.
The railroad running between Sowell's Point
and Cape May, a distance of 2i miles, is
wrecked, and parts of it bave been washed Into

The Damngo to Vessels at the Delaware
Breakwater Will Reach 83,000,000.
IiATfBXL, De:u, September U. Advices from
Delaware Breakwater state that it was the
most furious storm known to tbe oldest in
habitants. At least two score vessels are now
beached. Both wooden piers were washed away.
The beach from Rohoboth to Lewes is strewod
with wrecks. Itis thought at least SO Uvea
were lost. Men were seen clinging to the
rigging of tbe fast sinking vessels frantically
yelling for'help. The life saving crew were
powerless to render assistance, owing to the
fury of tbe gale. 'It was a terrible sight to wit
ness, but no human power could save them.
Their bodies were washed ashore this morn
ing, and were buried in sand along- the tatter.

reach, it is thought, $3,000,000. Tbe storm bas
continued here with unabated fury, but beyond
demolishing a few, outbuildings and fences and
the uprooting of some trees there bas no ap.
preciable damage in this immediate vicinity,!
