Yesterdays storm w s ons ef tha wont
over known on the cult coast of Texas
Wlnt damass hM been done Is not
known For once both tho tolftsraph com
panies woro ltnoolted out and not a word
could be secured from Galveston or othor
points on the ooa t The longvllstanco
telephone had no wires to coast points
standing and communication was utterly
cut off
Galveston was cornplstely Isolated from
tho outsld world and all kinds of onsa
Uonal and nlarmlnc reports were in cir
culation
Tbo storm pa e4 to the Interior durlun
the early part ot the nlsht and then
Houston was cut off from tht earth av
tor The Posts leased wlrs onrrylns Asso
ciated Freas dispatches lfivery effort was
made by both teiletraph oompanlos to get
Into Galveston an effort was made by
the Western Union to got to Mexico City
and thence to Tampieo where connection
could be bad by cable with Galveston but
the Mexican governments linos wero all
down and this scheme Droved futllo
Aftor the storm ptasod to the Interior
both companies lost all of their wires and
thon Houston iad only s single telegraph
wire and no telephone wire and was
nearly as icotatod as Galveston

up from Oalweton yesterday morning on
one ot the last trains leaving the island
Ho aald that standing on tho rear plat
1 form a person oould not s o th brldgo
1200 feet away as tho water was lashed
into a fury and was jumping over tha
brldgowork
In tbo oarly morning hours there was
eome communication by wire but after
i oclock all wlren telophouo and tele
graph went down and tho railways aban
doned thnlr train service It was thoro
foro Impossible to learn anything ot the
conditions in Galveston
The trains on the Santa Ve went as far
as Alvln Those on the Galveston Hous
tun and Henderson nearly to Virginia
Point while the Galveston Houston and
Northern could not go beyond 6oablook
One ot the sevoreat storms ever expe
rienced ln Houston was that which com
menced yesterday forenoon and continued
Iiiaetically no loss of life Tho owners ot uUrlne the diy wIth raaowerl vlgor grow
the telegraphic lino runningfrom hero
Ing stronger as the day advancod and
more ferocious as the night cams on Its
maximum of velocity being about 12
oclock last night when the storm was
raging at least olxty mies an hour The
wind was accompanied by a heavy rau
during tho day and night and many build
lngs wero Inundated where roofs wero
ripped off by the force ot the wind
Early ln tho day all communication
with Galveston was shut oft and conditions
were very similar to those prevailing In
1875 but the otorm soon became a record
breaker and Incomparable with anything
that the oldest citizens had ever wit
nessed
At noon the barometer got down to
2930 which is below tho ganger line and

No track has so far seta washed away
though It Is feared damico may bt don

It could not ae ascertained last night
when traffic would be resumed at tho

wires were still prostrated
Not since the awful storm at Septem
ber 1875 whon Indlanola wa wnshei

cut off from the outside world
It s Impossible to orots the bay la a
boat < M tht wave ars too huch and th
wind has been blotrlnr a As se n

trains throuia
The international and Orost Northern
frst moll was unable yeitarday to set out
and should tho storm continue the train

Much uuiety was displayed locally as
to the situation at Galveston and Th
