about five seconds duration, the lirst of the
day. and startled the shook-up people. It
was not near as severe as the shock of last

9:29 o'clock, the vibrations continuing
about fifteen seconds.
Savannah, Ga., Sept. 4. At 9:C0 to
night another shock of earthquake was felt
here. "While not severe it was everywhere
perceptible, and people rushed fiom houses
and stores. Hundreds of people aie again
spending the night outdoors.
Augusta, Ga., Sept. 4. Two slight
shocks were felt today, one at G:3U and one
at 9 a. m.

Raleigh, N. C, Sept. 4. A special dis
patch to the News and Observer tonight
sa's that news has been received at Ash-
ville tonight from Mitchell county to the
effect that the earthquake phenomena was
very startling in the mountains in the
vicinity of the pinnacle of the Blackvmoun-
tains. Subterranean rumblings were tre
mendous and continued fifteen minutes.
Immense rocks were moved from their
beds and hurled down the mountain ide
into the valleys. People fled from their
houses into the woods.
Nnw York, Sept. 4. A Sun Charles
ton special say: As Thursday night ap
proached, there was a very general move
ment in the diiection of the public squares
which have been utilitd by those com
pelled to sleep in the city." Improvised
tents soon covered each vacant squaie.
The tents were all shapes and si.es, con
structed of quilts, awnings, comfortables,
blankets and whatever else in the way of
clothes could be had, petticoats and other
articles of wearing apparel being used :us
doors and windows. ArtcM'an park was
nacked. Two lame ambulances and sev
eral ice carts and express wagons sheltered
as inanv families: the wheels tied down to
stakes and the vehicles were thus prevented
from lurching during quakes. Around
were hundreds of makeshift tents. At
"Washington square, white and blacks
mixed up indiscriminately it was a queer
and peculiar sight and pitiful withal.
The horrible noises and orgies of two
negro men. who were preaching and excit
ing colored women to frenzy the night be- j
fore, w ere still frc-.li in the " minds of af- j
frighted and helpless women and children,
powerless to help themselves. Many col
ored people here regretted and deprecated
the terrible scenes enacted. The negroes
who took part were of the lowest classes,
they had the assurance of numbers and re
fused to desist or conduct exercises in mod
eration. Thursday the situation promised to be
worse; half a hundred negroes, menjind
women, began to play balfand took com
plete possession of the park. Mayor lluger
had the ball playing stopped and forbid the
usual religious orgies, and the night passed
in peace and quiet.
The attempt at repairing caused a terri
ble rise in the price of labor. Masons are
readily jretting 6 ier day, and other trades
in outrageous proportion.
The city council appointed a committee
to inspect" all buildings and order pulled
down any that arc dangerous. Among the
buildings condemned must surely be St.
Michael's. Diagonally across from St.
Michael's is the court house, an antique
and handsome structure, which has hardly

Charleston has a large Catholic popula
tion. After the first shock they imme
diately rushed for the churches. The
priest said that as he felt the shock he
rushed for the yard. In the streets were
gathered thousands of Catholics who
wanted to enter the church. He closed
and locked the iron gates, keeping the
people from entering. When he opened
the church that the multitude might look
upon the tabernacle where rests the Holy
Ghost, instantly all fell on their knees and
began praying." Donning his cassock he
went among his people and gave absolution
to each, passing among them and hearing
as manv individual confessions as possible.

though but few were absolutely leveled to
the ground. Not exaggerated two-thirds
of all here will have either to be torn down
and entirely rebuilt, or nearly so; the dif
ference in the cost wuTbe but trifling.
The very heart of the city seems to be
utterly shattered and wrecked. It looks
as though it had been literally riddled and
honey-combed by bombshells from a hun

ing in the air by mere shreds of masonry;
great, missive porticos with tottering pil

Nnw York, Sept. 4. A special from
Charleston to the Times says in addition to
material losses there are sentimental losses
which are beyond all estimate. Charles
tonians set great store by the house in which
he was born with all of its associations. An
Episcopalian lady whose husband is cer
tainly ruined by the catastrophe said: "I
could stand it all if St. Michael's had been
spared; my grand parents were both bap
tised and inarried there, and within its
walls I. too, was married." This feeling
for old St. Michaels is quite general, even
among those not Episconalians. The build
ing was part of the family traditions of the
state, and as such was claimed by every
body. The great dread now is the approach of
equinox: in three weeks the equator will
balance the sun and will be in the midst of
the great storm era. Equinoxial gales
have "always Ix-en disastrous m Charleston.
In fact last year's disaster was so great as
to attract national attention. It is estimated
that every house in the city has its founda
tion shaken by the earthquake; walls have
been rent, chimneys and steeples are oil
their square and there is nothing plumb
about the city. If an equinoxial gale of
usual severity strikes the city before con
siderable repairs are made, nearly every
house in the city will be blown down. The
sale comes some times as late as the first
week in October, but last year it came in
the last week in August. It will thus be
seen the citv is in imminent danger at any
moment. This would cause such crashing

a few moments as tragical appearance as
on Tuesday night. But little actual harm
was done on Thursday night.

The sensation today is the falling of
showers of pebbles in the lower part ot the

Capt. Lee Vogel.of .the steamer City of Pa
latka, briefiv describing the effects of the
earthquake at sea. He had just left
Charleston and was about twelve miles off
the harbor at Port Royal in eight and one
half fathoms. "We experienced a terrible
rumbling sensation which la-ted one and
one-half minutes. There had been quite a
lieavv sea from the southeast, but when
the rumbling began the wave motion ceased
and the waters remained perfectlv calm un
til the rumbling came to an end. "When
the swell was again manifest the wind was
southeast and light; weather cloudy; bar

At Summerville Prof. McGee contin
ued his investigations and talked
freely with gentlemen. One of these gives
the Xews and Courier a sketch of Prof.
McGee's statements. Prof. McGee said
that the ornamental work and gingerbread
work in Charleston was in many "instance
out of proportion to the size of these build
ings and these parts would be apt to fall
and carry away portions of the general
structure. He said that when he left
"Washington he thought lie would have
little ditiiculty in determining the approxi
mate cause ot the earthquake, but con
fessed to have been much puzzled by his
observations. Contrary to expectations he
found that the fissures were not uniform in
their direction: some extended from north
to south, others from east to west,
and on this account he would
hesitate to give any scientific declaration, i

was no connection between the shakes and
the supposed volcanic action. His impres
sion is that the area covered bj the land

hundred miles under the bed of the sea.
He was confident, moreover, that the worst
was passed. This statement, however, was
made prior to the shock at 11 o clock last
night. You would be surprised if, when
in" sounding the sea, its bottom, off the
American coast, should be found to have
shifted. This is not at all improbable. He

Prof, McGee's remarks have had an ex
cellent effect. Up to Yesterday about one
thousand persons, or one-third of the pop
vlation, had left Summerville, but it is ex
pected that Prof. McGee's statement will
stop any further exodus.
Mr. Samuel Hammond, Avho was re
potted as dangerously injured aud dying,'
is now doing well. His leg, however, is
fractured and he has many severe con
tusions. The feeling today is decidedly more
cheerful and a better tone naturally per

The workmen are at work upon the in
jured buildings putting them in order, and
as much as possible is being done to pro
tect the interiors from the rain which is ex
pected. Another elemeni which increases confi
dence is the organization today of a strong
committee which will take entire chaige ol
the provisions and food, clothing and quar
ters as far as necessary for those w ho have
suffeied by the earthquake. A consider

and the indications arc that several times
that amount will be forwarded. City As
sessor Kelly says that the loss w ill reach
1,000,000; the taxable propertv aggregates
$2,000,000. As the greater portion of the
property destroyed was inherited by old
families who have no stiplus means, it
is believed that only a portion w ill be re
