The Grand Lodge committees, I. O. O. F., were here to-day and organized local relief com

sent to the lodges of the Union for relief.
The keeper of the life saving station at the western extremity of the island got in to-day.
He reports the station gone and that a frightful scene of desolation exists there. He says that
I^o bodies were buried there; that the prairie and marshes are strewn with the carcasses of ani
mals and reptiles, and that the stench is terrible.
The injured and sick, under the thorough system established by the Board of Health and
local p-ivsicians. are receiving every care and attention and doing as well as. could be expected un
der the circumstances, which are being improved daily.
All the churches in the city being either wrecked or ruined, with one or two exceptions, di
vine services were suspended.
To-morrow a census of the Catholic population will begin to ascertain the number of wid
ows and orphans caused by the storm and the exact number of Catholics that perished.
Since all the railways terminating here have united upon one bridge and are pushing the
work night and clay with a large force reconstructing it, while the tracks are being restored on
the island and mainland by large forces, it is confidently asserted that Galveston will have com
munication directly by Wednesday next. If this is done it will relieve the existing situation won
derfully, as all supplies are now being brought in by boat.
The cleaning up and disinfecting of the streets, stores and buildings is being diligently
carried on. and the sanitary condition of the down-town portion of the city has been greatly im
proved. Mayor Jones stated to-day that there would be no abatement in the work until the en
tire city is cleaned and disinfected.

The destitute wishing to go to friends in the country are given free transportation and are
being sent out of the city as rapidly as the limited transportation facilities at the disposal of the
committee on transportation will permit. The owner of any water craft or railway found guilty of
charging more than the regulation fee will be arrested and severely dealt with.
United States Marshal Grant has been given full authority by Adjutant General Curry, and
is directing affairs on the mainland, aided by troops of rangers, who are ordered to make short
work of looters and to arrest all suspicious characters. The rangers and militia and civil guards
stationed at Texas City and Virginia Point are under the direction of Marshal Grant. These are
the two points of ingress into the city. He also has control over all the railways running into the
city and all craft plying between Virginia Point and Texas City, and no one can embark or dis
embark at these places without his permission, unless having authority to do so from his superior
GALVESTON, Tex., Sept. 16. — This was a dreary Sabbath in Galveston. Services were
held in the few churches made fit for use since the great storm. All day men and boys
were at work clearing away the debris. Only a few dead were found during the. day and
they were quickly burned, no attempt being made to identify them. The military authorities and
the civil authorities are now co-operating harmoniously and consequently there is less looting and
desecration of corpses. Sheriff Thomas is in charge of the isolated district and is directing inter
ments and the recovery of property there.
The Santa. Fe system has concentrated
nearly ail Its best bridg-e and track men
on the spot, working to restore communi
cation with Galveston. The track was
completed to Virginia Point at 10:30 to-
State Health Officer Blunt left here to
day for Austin, where he will make a re
port to the Governor concerning condi

£300 souls. Dr. Blunt was in Galveston
revwal days and made a thorough investi
ca.tion of the results of the storm.

THE Pved Cross Society of California entered the field of subscription for the

Red Cross had established headquarters at 338 Sutter street and was pre
pared to receive donations of money or supplies in any quantities, which
the society would forward as soon as possible and without expense to the River.
The motto of thg Red Cross, however, is not to send on anything that is worth
less, so that whatever goes out will be fit for use at onee when it arrives in
the stricken district. To-day Mrs. Dr. MacKenzIe and "Mrs. Arthur Cornwall

the occasion by the agents.
The State committee let one day pas3 and will start active work to-day. The
organization of the committee was completed Saturday, the sub-committees were
all appointed and to-day they will all get down to business. A plan, already pub
lished, has been decided upon by which the entire State will be covered so far
as the committee is concerned, and all who will give will be reached and hi*
subscription taken care of. Arrangements have been made with the express
and telegraph companies by which money and supplies can be shipped with the
least posible loss of time and the least expenditure of money, and with the
work systematized it will not take long to gather In all that can be gathered
from the people of. the State. - --«?-fi
