St. Louis, May 26. It was posslblo
Friday to mako an intelligent csMmato
'-tot all figures are as yet estimates
of tho loss of lifo and t property in this
cltypnd vicinity by tho storm on Wed
nesday night. It will bo many days
beforo tho exact facts arc
known, if they aro ever known
at all. It is truo that in this city
and East St. Louis, tho records of tho
health department will show tho num
ber of .interments, so that the number
of dead within tho municipal limits
will bo eventually ascertained, but no
such verification is possiblo In tho
country districts whero tho loss of lifo
was undoubtedly gredtor than was at
first reported. Tho property loss, of
course, is practically an unknown
quantity, and figures vary great
ly., Tho best that can bo dono is
tQ aycrago tho estimates -of competent
authorities. In St. Louis tho number
of dead reported to tbo authorities up
to four o'clock Friday morning was 143,
of which number 110 were identified
and 27 unidentified. Of courso tho
larger proportion were at tho morgue
or reported at tho undertaker estab
lishments. But hero aro undoubtedly
many others, awaiting burials at pri
vato residences and It is still more cer
tain, unfortunately, that tlio removal
of debris will disclose tho bodies of
other victims of the storm as yet
unaccounted for. Still, Micro can
bo no doubt that tho first
rumors of scores crushed beneath fall
ing buildings woro largely exagger
ated, and tho number to bo accounted
for in this way will not bo so, large as
was at first feared. A careful survey
of tho situation, therefore, justifies tho
belief that tho unreported dead those
in private houses and those unrecov
ercdi from wrecked buildings will not
exceed 100. This brings tho total dead
in St. Louis up to about two 'hundred
and fifty, and it is believed that event
ual verification of the death roll will
not show a variation of moro than ten.

Coming to tho loss of property, tho
estimates, of courso, vary greatly, but
setting asido tho natural tendency to
exaggeration in tho face of tho great
calamity, it is pretty safe to say that
tho damage in St. Louis will reach
$5,000,000. Other estimates havo been
given out, among them ono by Mayor
Walbridge who places tho figures at
520,000,000, out they aro all too high.

alarming rumor prevails, according to

tors by wind and rain is estimated in
tho aggregate at 810,000. Tho princi
pal sufferers are tho Olympic, Hav

caused by buildings 'being unroofed

for a tug and a few rowboats, placed

with this city since Wednesday night,
a section of the uppor or railroad
portion of tho Eads bridge having been
carried away, whilo guards w ere sta

thieves and toughs of the city, how
ever, reinforced by scores from tho
country surrounding started in Thurs
day afternoon to pillage tho overturned
trucics in tho streets and the freight
cars on tho sidings, and which
woro filled with valuablo merchandise,
groceries and provisions. The small
police forco had been detailed to aid
the injured and assist in tho task of
searching tho ruins, and realizing that
they v ore powerless to preserve order
or prevent pillaging, Mayor Bader
callqd up Gov. Altgeld for aid. Ho
