Horrified Districts of the South
Charleston, Sept. 1. Two slight
shocks of earthquake have been felt here
since; the first at S:23 this morning, and
one at about 1:30 p. m., neither doing any
further destruction. Not even during
General Gilmorc's bombardment of the
city has there ever been sucli a deplorable
state of affairs here. The city in literally
in ruins, and the people arc living in the
open squares and public parks. There is a
great rush to the railroad depots to get
away, but owing to the earthquakes no
trains have been able to be dispatched from
the city. Telegraphic communication Is
also cut off, save one wire of the Southern
telegraph company, which is crowded
with anxious private messages.
It is impossible to depict the ruin and
desolation that prevails here. Not a single
place of business in the city is open, ex
cept one drug store, which is busy prepar
ing prescriptions for the wtiundcd.
Ic is imposssblc also to give any correct
estimate of the killed and wounded, as bod
ies are constantly being disinterred from
the debris of wrecked housc3. One under
taker who was interviewed said he had
furnished eight coffins up to noon to-day.
Many of the dead are lying unburicd, these
being of the poorer classes of colored peo
ple, who await burial by the county.
There arc not a half dozen tents in the
city and the women and children arc ex
periencing great privations in conse
quence. As night approaches most heads
of families are trying to construct tents out
of bed sheets, spare awnings and any
other material that come3 in their hands,
the sun is about to set upon another night
of horror for poor Charleston. Heaven
only knows what it may bring forth.
Without any further violent shock of
earthquake it is calculated at least three
fourths of the city will have to be rebuilt
entirely if the houses are to be inhabited.
The compositors of the News and Cour
ier decline to work tonight, expecting fresh
shocks of earthquake, and the paper can
not, therefore, issue tomorrow. The fol
lowing article was prepared for publication
in the News and Courier and is telegraphed
almost in the writer's own words:
"Necessarily the description that can be
given of the disaster which has befallen our
city consists in the narration of the exper
ience and observations of an individual,
and the subject being the same and the ex
perience of all being nearly alike, the story
told by one careful observer may well
stand for a hundred others with slight
While engaged in his usual duties'in the
second story room of the News and Courier
office at the time of the first shock, the
writer's attention was vaguely attracted by
a sound which seemed to be caused by the
rapid rolling o'f a heavy body, as an iron
safe or a heavily laden truck, over the floor.
Accompanying the sound there was a per
ceptible trembling of the building for per
haps two or three seconds. The occurrence
excited no surprise or comment. Then bv
swift degrees, or perhaps all at once (it is
difficult to say which), the sound deepened
in volume, and the tremor became more
The ear caught the rattle of window
sashes and fixture? and other loose objects.
The men in the office with perhaps a simul
taneous flash of recollections of the dis
turbance of the Friday lefore, glanced
hurriedly at each other and sprang to their
feet with startled questions and answers.
"What is it? That's an earthquake,"
and then all was bewilderment and con
fusion. The long roll deepened and spread
into an awful roar that seemed to pervade
at once the troubled earth and the still air
above and around.
The tremor was now a rude, rapid quiver
that agitated the whole lofty, strong-walled
building as though it were being shaken by
the hand of an immeasurable power with
intents to tear its joints asunder and scatter
its stones and bricks abroad. There was
no intermission in the vibrations of the
mighty subterranean engine. From the
first to the last it was a continuous jar,
only hdding force at every moment as it
approached and reached the climax of its
It seemed for a few terrible seconds that
no work of human hands could possibly
survive the shocks.
The floors were heaving under foot, the
surrounding walls and partitions visibly
swayed to and fro, the crash of falling
masses of stone and brick and mortar was
heard overhead and without the terrible
roar rilled the ears and seemed to fill the
mind and heart, dazing perception, be
wildering thought and for a few panting
breaths, or while you held your breath in
dreadful anticipation of immediate and
cruel death, you felt that life was alreadv
past and waited for the end. None expect
ed to escape.
A sudden rush was semultaneousiy made
to endearor to attain the open air and flee to a
place of safety, but before the door was
reached all reeled together to the tottering
wall and stopped, feeling that hope was
vain; that it was only a question of death
within the building. orVithout.to be buried
by tliesinking roof or crushed by theTtop-
pling walls. Tiie uproar slowly died away
in seeming distance. The earth was still
and oh, the blessed relief of that stillness!
But how rudely the silence was broken as
we dashed down the stairway and out. into
On every side arose the shrieks,
cries ot pam anu icar, me
prayers and wailings of frightened
women and children collected with the
hoarse shouts of excited men. Out in the
street the air was filled to the height of the
houses with a whitish cloud of dry, stifling
dust from the lime and mortar and shat
tered masonry- which, falling'', upon the
pavement and stone roadway, had been re
duced to powder. Through this cloud,
dense as fog, the gas lights flickered dimly,
sheddinsr but little light so that vou stum
bled at every step over the piles of
brick or became entangled in the
lines of telegraph wires that de
pended in every direction from their
broken supports. On every side were hur
rying forms of men and women, bare
headed and partially dressed, some almost
naked, and many of whom were crazed
with fear or excitement. Here a woman
is supported, half fainting,. in the arms of
her husband, who vainly attempts to soothe
her, while he carries her into the open
space at the street corner where present
safety seems assured. There a woman lies
on the pavement with upturned face and
outstretched limbs and the crowd passes
her by for the time, not pausing to see
w hether she be alive or dead.
A sudden light flares through a window
overlooking the street; it becomes . mo
mentarily brighter and the cry of fire re
sounds from the multitude; a rush is made
toward the spot; a man is seen doubled up
up and helpless against the wall, but at this
moment somewhere, Out at sea, overhead,
deep in the ground, is heard again the low,
omenous roar which is already too well
known to be mistaken. It grows louder
and nearer, like the growl of a wild beast
swiftly approaching his prey, and is for
gotten again in the frenzied rush for the
open space, where alone there is hope of
security, faint though it be.
The tall buildings on cither hand over
hang every foot of ground between them.
It seems that a touch would now send the
shattered masses left standing down upon
the people below who look upon them and
shrink together as the tremor of the earth
quake again passes uade r them, and again
is experienced the blessed feeling of deli v.
enmce from impending calamity again, for
along the street and up from the alleyways
that lead into it from every side, is heard
that chorus of wailing aud lamentation of
helpless, horror-stricken humanity.
It is not a scene to be described by any
mortal tongue or pen. The first shoci oc
curred at seyen minutes of 10. as was indi
cated this morning by the public clocks,
the hands on all of which had stopped at
that frightful hour. The second shock
which was but a faint and crisp echo of
the firt, was felt at eight minutes later.
As it passed away the writer started home
ward to find the scenes enacted on Broad
street around the News and Courier office
repeatcdit every step of the way. All the
way up Meeting street, which, in respect of
its general direction andimportance,may be
called the "Broadway of Charleston," the
roadway was piled with debris.
At Marion Square a great crowd had col
lected. From this crowd composed of men,
women and children of both races, arose
incessant calls and cries and lamentation5,
while over the motley, half-dressed throng
was shed the lurid light of the conflagration
which hud broken out jnst beyond the
square immediately after the first shock
and had now wholly enveloped several
buildings in flames. In three other quar
ters of the town at the same lime similar
large fires were observeJ under full
headway and the awful significance
of the earthquake may be mo-.t fully appre
ciated perhaps when it is said that with
these tremendous fires blazing up all at
once around them aud threatening the city
with total destruction, the people evidently
did no, give them a thought The crowds
poured in from every direction to the
square just described as though life depend
ed on passing within its grassy bounds.
The colored people everywhere were bud
and increasing in their declamations of
alarm, in the singing of hymns and in fer
vent appeals for God's mercy.
There were no distinctions of place or
j power, pnae or c&si in me
assembly that were gathered together in
Charleston on Tuesday night. It was a
curious spectacle to look back upon it b a
good one to remember, for white and black
alike. There were instances of unselfish
devotion.of kind and loving regard between
master and servant, mistress and rnaid, in
the presence of a common ill and of threat
ened rain that showed as nothing else could
show how strong is the thread that binds
our white people and our black people

the demoralized condition of everything
here it is impossible to give the correct facts
further than this. The number of casual
ties has not yet been ascertained: probably
from thirty to forty killed aud over one
hundred injured. " The loss to property
will probably reach $S,000,000 or 10,000,

Columbia, Sept. 1. There were sixteen
distinct shocks from earthquake here last
night and up to 5 o'clock this morning.
The first shock was fearful and houses
were shaken as though made of paste
board. It seemed as if everything must
topple. The rumbling in the earth was
loud and horrifying in the extreme. Clocks
stopped, tells were rung and damage done
to some buildings, principally by toppling
of chimneys. Two rooms in the govern
or's mansion were wrecked. Two shocks
were felt this morning, one at S:30 and an
other about an hour later.

London, Sept. 1. In the house of com
mons tonight Mr. Sexton moved his amend
ment to the address in reply to the Queen's
speech as follows:
We humbly represent to your majesty
that circumstances accountable for the re
cent riots in Belfast dictate the necessity for
special measures to maintain order there,
the most urgent of these measures beintr
the rc-establishment of your majesty's au
thority in the district wherefrom the police
have been expelled by an increase of local
constabulary, to sucli strength as w ill en
able it to deal with any practicable contin
gency. Inoffering the amendment, Sexton de
nied that he had acted contentiously. He
charged that riots in Belfast had been con
ceived and prosecuted in the interest of the
present government (cheers). He demand
ed that the government restore order in
Belfast now, and not await the results ol
the protested inquiry by a commission
Six hundred poor Ca'tholtcs had been de

trigue. He was not aware that any protec
tants had been treated similarly, lie asked
Lord Randolph Churchill.what the govern
ment .proposed to do to induce the
protestant employers of Belfast to
fulfill their duty and re-emplo
the Catholics they had discharged.
It was impossible to connect these riots with
the nuestion of home rule: with or without
home rule riots would ensue unless the
government brought those who had incited
disorder to book (Cheers) by the use in In
land of public lorces, promptly ami ue

London, Amsterdam and clsewhtre. Lord
Randolph Churchill's Belfast speech had
tended to excite a spirit of disloyalty among

earnestly implored the Farnelites to refrain
