The storm began early Tuesday night and raged with increasing vio until ,s o'clock this morning. It ; its height between 4 and 5 :. when Hie wln.l reached a veloc eigbty miles an hour. It waa he heaviest damage was done. When daylight came the streets wera impassable from debris. Probably 100 buildings were wholly >r partially unroofed ami as many more were damaged in other ways, fhej-oor was torn from half of the Sa? vannah theatre and the auditorium of that building was transferred into a lake. The First Baptist church is among Hie most heavily damaged buildings. The entire western half or the root was lifted from the walls anil curried into ,e street below. The handsome organ is filled with water and the rich trea? ting was ruined.

ALG ER What the S In the- business part of the city doz? ens of stores wer,, umoored and win lows were blown in and the interior Hooded. There was no telegraphic com? munication during the day until late in tin- evening, when the Western Union and Postal Cable lines were in partial working order. Street car trav? el is blocked ami tonight the city is in darkness. The streets are a network o? tangled wires. In the harbor and at quarantine at Tybee the damage to shipping Is heavy. Tin* British bark Breamer, from Dema rara. was blown on a Jetty during tha night and is heavily damaged. Tha Italian bark Maria Maraffo broke loose, from her anchorage and drifted into ihe marsh, where she Is lying. The Norwegian bark Noe broke loose from h.-r moorings at quarantine and went ashore on Daufuskie Island, at the mouth of Savannah river. Her crew oC Twelve men were rescued 'by the tug McCuuley. She Is a total-wreck. Be? tween llftisen and twenty naptha launches in the river at the Savannah Yacht Club anchorage, at Thunderbolt, oji'd as many more small sloops and ch.loners doing n coasting trade with ihe Islands, were sunk or lost. Tha steamers Alpha, and Doretta drifted their anchors and went ashore and are heavily damaged. The steamer Eulala broke from her moorings at Wilming? ton Island, about ten miles from Sa? vannah, and sank. Mrs. J. E. Lucas, wife of t$gp owner, was on board and was rescued with difficulty by the cap? tain ami a deck hand. She was taken to Hi.- top of the wheen and thrown In shore and was caught as she struck the water and was carried safely to land. The re-venue steamer Tybee, In com? mand of George Maher, went lo the as? sistance of the stranded vessels in the harbor before daylight and rendered valuable aid in saving life and proper? ly. The cutter Boutweli was in Wil? mington river and Is safely anchored. At Tybee Island the hotels and cot? tages were heavily damaged. The North Carolina troops passed a terrible night there, but were all brought safe? ly to the city today. All of the railroads suffered severely, by washouts, and trains have run with difficulty all day. The rice and cotton crops have been heavily damaged. It will be impossible, however, to estimate the damage far several days. Tin- storm covered a comparatively, small territory. It extended in the in? terior not more than thirty miles, and hardly that distance north and south. It is believed to have been severe at sea and fears are felt for vessels oft Ihe coast. .

WASHINGTON, Aug. 31. ?Tt cannot be said that Secretary Alg.-r is Indiffer? ent to many sensational stories tha! arc printed as to tin- conditions that pre? vail in the greal military camps, for his first interest lies in the welfare of the individual troops. But he said to? day that, with a full knowledge of the lack of foundation for most of these. In- deprecated such publications, not because ..r tear that the American peo? ple would be mistaken in their under? standing ol" the actual rai ts, but rather from an apprehension of the evil effect such publications would produce abr.1. There the people, who, with their full military training, knew just whal hardships must be encountered by troops in a campaign, and especially in military camps anil manoeuvres, would regard with amused surprise the in? numerable complaints that are pouring forth upon Ihe government here upon pretexts that would be disregarded en? tirely in Europe, and they could scarce? ly fail to gain the impression that the American people arc lacking in sol? dierly qualities.

Most Magnificent Military Pageant Ever Seen in Jacksonville. (By Telegraph.) i JACKSONVILLE. FLA.. Aug. 31.~ The parade of the seventh army corps today was the most, magnificent mili? tary pageant ever seen in Jacksonville. Nearly 20.0(H) men were in line, and ev? ery regiment presented a fine appear? ance. Fortunately good weather favor? ed the soldiers, and not a drop of rain fell during the day. The procession started past the re? viewing stand occupied by Oeneral Lea and staff at 3:10. and it was 5:30 befora the last regiment marched by. The streets along the line of march were lined with thousands of people. who cheered and applauded the soldiers, each regiment seemingly getting its lull share of applause. The First Wis? consin regiment, which Is to be sent home to be mustered out, was excused from llu- parade and was the only ona that did not appear. Colonel William .It nnings Bryan, in command of the Third Nebraska regiment, received a continuous ovation all along the line of march. The inarch was a very tedious one for Some of the regiments that are encamped outside of the city limits, and the ambulance carried a good many men back to camp. So far as reported, however, then' were no seri? ous affects as the result of the pa? rade. The soldiers made a splendid appear? ance in their khaki trousers and blue shirts. All carried their ponchos as well, but for the first time in a general parade in the city had no use for them. BAD KENTUCKY BLOOD. i m. Business Man Shoots Another on the Street in Versailles.
