STORM SHOWS FURY
Wind Races Through City
Sixty Miles an Hour.
HEAVY DAMAGE IN ITS WAKE
Washington and Vicinity Visited by
Destructive Hurricane.
RAILWAY TRACKMAN KILLED
District Street Car Service Blocked.
Roofs Blown From Houses?Plate
Glass Shattered.
The storm that swept Washington a''d
the surrounding territory shortly after
o'clock yesterday evening. while not of
long- duration, was one of the most de
structive that has visited tho city iti
years. Uttered streets piled high with
limbs; twigs and leaves torn from the
trees; telephone and electric light polos
blown down or snapped off. houses and
small buildings unroofed, and windows
smashed in. pave evidence this morning
of the fierceness of tho hurricane, which
attained a maximum velocity of sixty
seven miles an hour and which blew at
the rate of nearly sixty miles an hour for
tho official period of five minutes, as in
dicated at the weather bureau's observa
tory.
It is believed the heaviest of the storm
was felt in the vicinity of Springfield.
Prince Georges county, Mil., about fifteen
miles from this city on the line of the
Pennsylvania railroad and Washington,
Baltimore and Annapolis electric line,
where Moses Stewart, colored, a track
walker on the Pennsylvania railroad, was
killed.
Stewart sought protection from the
storm in the station on the electric line,
and shortly after he entered the struc
ture it was blown over and he was
killed. At Bell s station, only a short
distance from Springfield, the station
building of the electric line was blown
down. A boy was in the station and he
was severely hurt.
Follows Day of Showers.
The storm came as the culmination of
a day of showers. Shortly atter noon the
clouds drifted away and the sun came out
clear and warm, enticing hundreds to
the parks and resorts.
About ."> o'clock heavy clouds began to
pile tip in tiie southwest, and the rapidly
increasing humidity indicated the ap
proach of a thunderstorm, and the more
timid of the Sunday outers began to
seek shelter or to board the city-bound
cars for home. The air grew hotter as
time passed, while the clouds took on a
more menacing aspect, and a few min
utes after ~ o'clock the wind, a veritable
tornado, swept down, bringing with it
blinding sheets of rain that drove into
the faces of those exposed to its fury
with the stinging impact of hall.
In an instant the air was filled with
flying leaves and small branches; um
brellas, quickly hoisted by pedestrians,
were turned wrong side out or whisked
out of the owners' hands in a jiffy; straw
hats sailed into the air and were gone,
and the street crowds, in a panic, dashed
for every available doorway, drug store,
cigar store or any place of shelter.
Dazzling Electric Display.
The hurricane was accompanied by a
display of lightning that was dazzling,
while the roll of the thunder was almost
continuous, sounding in ear-splitting,
crackling crashes above the rumhie and
roar of the wind and rain.
Within the first few minutes of the
storm huge limbs were torn from trees
all over the city; giant trees themselves
were uprooted or snapped off; roofs were
torn from houses, garages and sheds;
poles that carried electric light, tele
phone, telegraph and trolley wires snap
ped off or were torn from the ground,
and the lighting system of the city, as
well as every means of communication,
was badly crippled.
Canoeists and owners of small river
craft who had been deceived by the clear
ing weather earlier in the afternoon and
who were caught on the river when the
storm swooped down were in dangerous
predicaments. Several small boats and
canoes were capsized and their owners
were thrown into the water; but aside
frm accidents such as these, with their
resultant drencliings, the storm, it la
thought, had few serious consequences.
Damages to windows and buildings
throughout the city will run far into the
thousands of dollars, however.
As the details of policemen started from
the various precincts for their stations
last night they were loaded down with
lanterns, to be hung up as danger signals
at the hundreds of points where uprooted
trees and other evidences of the storm s
fury made, dangerous obstructions.
Plate-Glass Windows Broken.
Several big plate glass windows of busi
ness houses were demolished and goods
in the various windows damaged by
broken glass and water. At the. Palais
Royal a large glass was smashed and*
considerable damage done the stock.
O'Donnell's drug store, at Wisconsin
avenue and P street, suffered the de
struction of :i window, pieces of tho
heavy glass being blown into the store,
where a number of persons gathered to
get out of the storm.
Plate glass windows of three business
houses in the block on Mount Pleas
ant street were demolished. The damage
done at the store of K. T. Hunt amounts
to about At the stores of M. L.
King and William Johnson the loss was
estimated at only about $30.
A plate glass window worth about $.v?
was broken at the store of Otis 11. Wood,
Connecticut avenue and Ij street. The
water did very little damage.
Kiseman Bros., clothiers, at 7th and K
streets northwest, also suffered the loss
of a big plate glass window, .while at
Swenk's shoe store, in the next block, a
window and showcase were broken.
A glass panel was blown from the hall
door at 007 7th street northwest.
Incidents of the Storm.
Nick Bobys of 1115 7th street north
west. and Mr. and Mrs. Goldenberg.
neighbors, had an exciting experience
shortly after midnight while riding
along R street near the river front in
a vehicle of the Terminal Taxicab
Company. The chauffeur, it is thought,
did not see a light on a tree that had
blown across the roadway, and the
taxicab was driven against the obstruc
tion.
Mrs. Goldenberg fainted, and Mr
Bobys sustained a slight injury to his
face. The taxicab was badly damaged.
Two churches and a number of resi
dences were damaged by the storm, but
the occupants escaped injury. One of
the churches was the Anacostia Baptist
Church at Wth and W streets, a
large tree having been blown on to the
roof of the structure. Only slight in
jury resulted. Part of the roof of the
A. M. E. Church at Garfield was blown
off. causing about SloO damage.

by a big tree that was blown against
the front of his dwelling. He was at
a window trying to arrange an awning,
