The high Kales promised by the
Weather Bureau came on time yester?
day morning;, the wind blowing hard
all day front the Northeast, teaching a
maximum velocity In this city of twen?
ty-six miles an hour. These winds had
the effect of blowing the water up In
the harbor, giving Norfolk the highest
tides known for a long time. Streeta i
in the lower part of the city were In?
undated, and for some time In the
morning street car travel to Bramble
ton was abandoned; the water cover?
ing the tracks on Queen street and
about the Norfolk and Western depot,
where the wuter was even with .the
station platform. York stieet was also
covered and street cur travel was here
Interrupted.
Around the wharves little or no dam?
age was done, but It is said that the
loss around Lambert's Point will
amount to several hundred dollars. In
the lower part of the river It looked like
a rough sea.
No damage Is reported from Ocean
View or Virginia Huioh.
Further down the coast the Storni
was more' severe. At Cape Henry the
wind reached u velocity of fifty-two
miles an hour, while at Kitty Hawk,
sixty-eight miles were registered The
Government telegraph line between
Kitty Hawk and Mutteras was blown
tlown and no information was received
from the latter place, although It is
probable that a still greater velocity
was reached there.

ATLANTIC CITY.
The ilrn on Central avenue yester?
day morning started a little after 3
o'clock in a house belonging to a Mrs.
Wilsen, recently vacated by a. man by
the name of Teagle. That house anil
the one adjoining It owned by Mr. Tll
? t?n Con kl In, were destroyed. Mr. Conlt
Iln's house was insured for $SO0. and
was occupied by Mr. .lames Hitching*,
a worthy citizen, who lost much of bis
' household goods, and has the general
sympathy of the community. Three
j things deserve comment: 1st. The
watchfulness of Patrolmen Freeman
anil Guy. 2d. The need of a fire alarm
box or else of a telephone In the cen?
tral part of the ward, say about the
corner of Central avenue. The patrol?
man had to go about three-quarters of
a mile lo sound the alarm. In which
time one house would probably have
been saved, ?d. The quick response
and efliclenl service of the Fire De
! ailment. The wind was almost a rule
ind the Harnes were fierce. The Fire
: Department responded to the alarm,
i carrying two engines to the scene, one
from each engine-house. Tile llremen
were served with hot coffee by Mr.
and Mrs. Miller. Mr. and Mrs. Hurst,
i'apt. and Mrs. Williams and Mr. and
Mrs. J. 13. Simpson, for which the boys
were very grateful.

Under tlie ubovo caption an afternoon
paper yesterday published a statement
made by John W. Shields, a drummer
for a Boston hardware house. In the
Police Cotirt yesterduy morning, In
which he said that he had been locked
up on Thursday in a cell ?'with two
niggers." Shields, who Is a well-dress?
ed and Intelligent-looking man. came lo
Norfolk Thursday and was arrested
that afternoon for drunkenness. lie
was token to the station end locked,
up In No. 6 cell, the best and most com
fortuble in the place. Thursdav night
he was bailed by Justice Asbburn. At
the station-house last night It was de?
nied that he was placed In n cell with
anyone else, especially with colored peo?
ple. Last night a Virginian reporter
found Shields in a colored cook-shop, on
Cove street. He wus seated at a table
with a colored man ami both were eat?
ing from the same dish or meat. When
pressed, lie said that he was put in u
coll with' two men, one of whom he
knew to bo white, while he did not see
the face of the other.
Capt. Ln<dd wns indignant nt the
man's assertion that be bird been locked
Up with colored men, something never
done In Norfolk. He remembered that
Shields on Thursday night had tried to
bribe a Virginian reporter lo suppress
his name, dropping a sum of money
Into the reporter's pocket, which was
returned to him In the presence of Capt.
Ladd and Justice Asbburn.
A BARGE SUNK.

F.ugliKli Ktennis1il|i.
About 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon
freight barge No. 1. of the Norfolk .and
Carolina railroad, was run Into at her
wharf by the British steamship Oregon
and sank In a lew minutes.
The barge was loaded with freight
at the lime, mostly of a perishable na?
ture, such as cakes, candles, sugar,
raisins and other Christmas goods, and
will prove almost a total loss. A large
hole wus stove In her side near the
how, and the water rushed In, sinking
the barge In a few minutes.
The Oregon was bound for Newport
News. ffn midstream the pilot (lost
control of her steering apparatus, and
the Washington steamer had a narrow
escape. The Oregon was uninjured.
After sinking the barge was lowed
up the wharf and mts'Ie fnet to another
barge, and a large force of colored men ,
divested of shoes, went lo work remov?
ing such of the freight as could be
saved.
It is said that the Oregon will be li?
belled by the railroad company.

December 1st. took a heavy gale from 1
the northwest, which hauled around
to the Northeast. Gates continued after
this from all points of the compass and
were accompanied by high sens, which
caused the vessel to labor heavily and
spring a leak, requiring the vessel's
pumps to be manned all the time.
The forcB'pmast backstay chain plates
