The only result thus far. therefore, is
that Esterhazy is cashiered and will
retire on a small pension. Even after

When daylight came the streets wera

Probably 100 buildings were wholly

more were damaged in other ways,

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

is filled with water and the rich trea?
ting was ruined.

'. and which candid expres?
sion is being quoted in English finan?

American interests in Gr, at Britain
and to English interests embarked in
this country:
"There are, of course, many worthy
private persons in the United States;
but what we have to think of now are

In the- business part of the city doz?
ens of stores wer,, umoored and win

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

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

NOT INDIFFERENT.

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.

LEE'S TROOPS PARADE.
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.
