THE SURF AT ATLANTIC CITY.
Highest Ever Known—The Hoard Walk
and Hath Houses Washed Away.
Atlantic Cit y, August 29.— For à week
the high seas which have been running
steadily, despite the absence of heavy winds,
have puzzled the old coast men. Owing to
the position of the moon the evening tide
runs the highest. The height obtained on
Tuesday evening was sufficient to alarm a
great many about the safety of the piers,
board-walk and even the bathing establish
ments. At high tide, at 5 o'clock this
morning, It was raining, but hundreds were
on the beach to see the great waves. It was
warning of what might be expected when
the evening tide came in, with its 18 inches
more of water than the morning flow, and
workmen were kept busy all day strength
ening In every possible way the walks, pa
vilions and bath houses.
High water was due at 5 o'clock and 49
minutes, and although thousands of people
went down earlier in the afternoon the
crowd comprised nearly everybody in town.
They were rewarded by the most raagnifl
cent spectacle ever witnessed upon the coast.
There have been higher tides than tbit fre
quently, but never anything like so heavy a
surf. The best view was had from the ocean
pier, which stood'as firm as a rock through
It all. From the elevation of the pier, as
far as the eye could reach, the surf was roll-,
lug house-top high, the sea was lashed into
a fury and Its aspect was changed from blue
to almost white, so solid was its covering of
foam. A steady wind was blowing from
As the waters came in the breakers be
gan creeping nearer and nearer to the board
walk, until at last they broke beneath it.
At point after point the w-ater began to climb
up to the underside of the walk and the
people upon it reluctantly fled to higher
ground in the rear of the bath houses.
From Pennsylvania to South Carolina
enues, two blocks in distance, the walk was
built nearer the water than at others and
here the work of destruction began. The
surf would come rolling under the walk and
break there, lifting the walk from its piles
and dashing it against the underpinning
upon which the bath houses rested. Then
ii would be carried out to sea until it would
be broken to nieces or carried back aud
dashed against the piliug supporting
the bath houses. These repeated attack*
against the bath
houses began to
tell. The first to succumb to them
was the large bathing establishment of Lions
Brothers, at the foot of South Carolina
avenue. It was two stories and a-half iu
height, the upper portion being occupied as
a residence. When the walk had battered
down the piles which held the house up it
dropped into the sea and would be c. rried
out, lifted up and then dropped suddenly
into t.he trough ot the sea and broken; then
the waves would grind the pieces into frag
ments Others rapidly followed It, and in
au hour's time nearly all the bathing estab
lishments, photograph galleries, cigar and
fruit stands, stores aud booths were carried
out to sea aud fairly pulverized. Iu many
instances the beach end of long bathing
tablishments would be ground to piece*,
leaving the remainder of the buildings
standing with their ragged ends.
Before the work of destruction was com
pleted It had grown dark and places, if
standing, would be surrounded by water.
This rendered it impossible to obtain
thing like & list of the proper les damaged,
but from' Wiedemer's establishment, next
adjoining the ocean pier entrance, north
ward to the United States Hotel establish
ments the destruction is widespread, in
the first few blocks above the pier Apple
rate 's photograph gallery is the only estab
ishment not carried away, but everything
U) front of it is gone. Below the pier, which
stands in about the centre of the beach, the
damage has not been so universal, but still
it is great. The pavilion of the Park Parlors
was carried away. *At about 8 o'clock the
West Jersey excursion pier was carried away
in a moment's time.
By actual measurement the water ad
vanced up Kentucky avenue 730 feet. The
ocean pier has received a terrible strain, but
it didn't give way. Twenty five sections, 16
feet in length, of board walk, three bath
houses aud a large number ot electric light
poles were dashed against, the pier at one
time. Two thousand feet of board-walk
above the pier are gone. All the railroad
tracks across the meadows are under a few
Inches water. The contents of the build
ings destroyed are nearly all lost. The loss
on the buildings themselves is not less than
$200,000, with no Insurance whatever. The
wind is increasing in velocity and rain
has set in. It is feared that if the wind
continues through the night the high water
iu the morning will more than double the
damage already Gone by making a clean
sweep of the beach. The wonder is that no
lives, so far as knbwn, have been lost. The
people had ample warning from the board

buildings. The owners of the buildings
stood upon the beach and saw -their houses
floating away, some of them ridiu

the destruction of their property.

Two More Victims— Preparations to Halse
New York, August 29.—Hundreds of
persons thronged the riverside in the neigh
borhood of the Klverdale disaster early this
morning. The wreck lav off Fifteenth
street, about a sixth of a mile from shore,
and at high tide but a small pait of her port
Bide was visible Attached to the sunken
steamer by a hawser was the steamboat
company's tug Reindeer, which was
stationed there throughout the night to
warn approaching vessels. At sunrise a
large n urn lier of row boats surrounded the
wreck in search of more bodies, and in two
of the small crai t were men with oyster
General surprise was expressed by many
in t.he throng that, as hour after hour
passed by, no signs were shown of any at
tempt to raise the sunken vessel, and the
company was referred to asheartless in not
at once prosecuting the work. Those who
have missing friends that are supposed to
have been lost in the disaster were very in
dignant, and expressed their feelings forci
bly. Â6 soon as the wreck can be suffi
ciently buoyed it will be dragged out of the
channel, where it lies in the strong tide,
a source of great danger to boats going up
and down the river. A thorough examina
tioti cf Its condition and a search for more
bodies will then be made, and the truth will
be known, both as to the condition of the
boiler and the number of victims of the ex
plosion. Steamboat men express the opinion
from a look at the capsized vessel that it
may break when an attempt is made to
raise it. They believe that it is split into
three or four pieces.
In addition to the victims reported yester
day are Thomas Joseph Saul, a pump-fltler,
living at 292 Sumter street, Brooklyn, who
died this morning in the hospital, and
Charles Sisson, of Tarry town, aged 72, the
husband of Mrs. 8issou, whose death has
been reported. He is supposed to have been
instantly killed, and his body has not been
recovered. The three injured men in the
New York Hospital are doing as well as can
be expected Two of them, William H.
Henry, the oiler on the steamer, and John
Solair, the mate, are out of all danger.
Rev. Howell Gardner Is Injured more ser
iously, having been dreadfully scalded. As
he is between 60 and 70 years old, he may
succumb to the shock. The hospital physi
cians have stroug hopes of his recovery. It
is believed by th*-se best informed that the
full extent of the calamity has been 6tated.
A special policeman has been stationed
alone the river walk, Hoboken, and along
the "cove" to look out for any bodies that,
may be washed iu from the Riverdale wreck
The current of the North river sets in with
a strong eddy at the "cove," and persons
drowned on this side are generally carried
by the flood tide over to the Jersey shore.
Coroner Marri n this afternoon began mak
ing preparations for the performance of his
duties in connection with the explosion by
viewing the bodies of the victims aud visi -
ing the scene of the disaster. 4e has signi
fied his determination to make a rigid ex
amination into the matter, so as to enable
him to ascertain exactly where the fault
lies. The inquest in the case will be begti
on Saturday and will probably continue lor* 1
two or three days.
CLKANLMl THE RACE.
Very D rty From Orange Mi-oet to the City
weae put to work by Chief
Engineer Coyle of the Water Department,
yesterday morning, at cleaning out the
South long race, beginning at the third da»u
and worked toward the City Mill. Nothing
but grass and stones were reached exoept at
mud and filth was found. From Orange
street to the end of the race the bottom
was one mass of soft mud, filth,
stones, etc. As the city now owns
the entire race one of the wires which di
vided the water rights of the previous owner
was removed. No carrion was found, neither
were any valuable. The race was flushed
last evening and the loose dirt left behind
washed out. The turbine wheel in the City
Mill was necessarily stopped,aud the Worth
ington pump, which has been taking the
water from the Brandywine, was also
stopped and thoioughly cleansed. The
pump started last evening again, pumping
from the Brandywine, and the mills farther
up the stream were notified not to allow
any dye to enter the stream until this after
noon, by which time the race will be in
proper condition to supply the water again.
Passengers in Danger.
Boston, August 29.—The steamer John
Römer left thl6 morning on her regular trip
to Pemberton and Nautasket, cairying
about 700 passengers. The trip was a very
rough one, a strong northeasterly wind
blowing at the time. When off Long Island
the Homer began to roll heavily on the
rough sea, which rapidly increased as the
steamer proceeded on her course. Just be
fore crossing the sand bar between Nix's
Mate and Long Island, a tremendous
struck her on the port side, and directlv
under the wheel, tearing away with a crash
the after part of the port paddle box and
the entire state-room adjoining. A
panic ensued among the passengers,
and a rush was made for life pre
servers, while others sought the boats.
The officers of the- Römer headed
Gallops Island, In the meantime blowing a
signal of distress, which was answered by
the steamer Rose Standish, which was on
her course to Boston from Strawberry Hill
and Pemberton. Alter receiving about 200
passengers, the Standish proceeded for Pem
berton, where they landed safely, while the
Römer being relieved of a part of her pas
sengers continued on her course to Naptas
ket.. The accident is said to have been the
result of the steamer listing to the port side
and shutting in a heavy sea which had no
chance of escape except by breaking through
The Case Dismissed.
A case which embodied all sorts of in

was tried by 'Squire Vandegnft last eveniug
but was flually dismissed for reasons of the
best kind. The case in question was that

Best charged Shurtz with disorderly con

hearing last evening. Best had about 20
witnesses, including the managing editor
and city editor of the Morning News, all of
whom testified as to the disorderly conduct
and other matters eutirely irreleveut. The
disorderly conduct consisted of Shurtz
talking to a man named Anderson,
In which Shurtz 6ald he didn't

Swept Away by immense Waves
London, August 29.—Further particulars
of the great volcanic eruption In Java,
which have just reached London from Ba
tavia, show the disaster to have been even
more widespread than reported in yester
day's advices. At noon on Sunday the
eruptions and shocks were supposed to have
reached their greatest height, but late in the
afternoon and evening the violence of the
disturbances suddenly increased and the Is
land of Java seemed about to be
pletely buried In a
and sulphurous ashes,
time the enormous waves began to dash
with greater force upon the shores, coming
in some places far up Into the interior, and
great chasms opened in the earth and
threatened to engulf a large proportion of
the Island's people and buildings. About
midnight the most frightful scene of the
whole disturbance took place. Suddenly
enormous luminous club, similar tr that
which was seen over the Gunuug Gunter,
but much greater in extent, formed over the
Kandang range of mountains, which skirt
the southeast coast of the island. The cloud
gradually increased in size until It formed a
canopy of lurid red and whitish gray over a
wide extent of territory.
During thi6 time the eruptions increased
and streams of lava poured incessantly down
the sides of the mountains into the valleys,
sweeping everything b< lore them.
One of the most singular freaks of the
eruption was the carrying in the mldt-t of
the molten lava of a bed of solid ice of
mous size, which had been emitted from one
of the craters, carried along by the current
and landed ou the extremity of Point St.
Nicholas, on the northeast . orner of the
island. This bed of ice was surrounded by
a thick envelope af sand and scoriae, which

hot stream of lava running over them will
not melt snow. It is supposed that this ice
had formed the crust of some vast subter
