Much Damage Done to Wharves and
Shipping in the Bay.
The Tacht Nellie Among the Vessels
Driven Ashore—Many Small Cratt
Founded to Pieces—A Heavy
Fall of Rain.
By tho Associated Press. I
San Francisco, Nov. 27.—Shipping in
San Franciaco bay had a lively time last
night and today. The weather haa been
atormy for the past few days, and laat
night before midnight a furious gale
commenced which aeemed to increaie in
intensity until nearly noon today. Then
the wind began to go down, but there
waa atill a heavy gale on at 6p. m, At
2 o'clock thia afternoon the wind was
blowing 54 miles an hour from the
southwest, and during the early morn
ing its velocity must have been much
greater. Outside the heads the weather
and the aea were bo bad that no ahipa
left port, and there were only oteor
two arrivals of steamers. Even in the
sheltered bay the sea waa unprecoient
edly heavy. Ships were torn from t leir
anchorages and knocked together, and
those lying at the wharvea were bai ged
up considerably. Tuga were in feat
demand to pull colliding vessels at *rt.
There was a score of accidents, but, ao
far as is reported there was no losi of
The British ship Stronaa and the ship
Occidental dragged their anchors tnd
fouled each other in the stream. The
damage was slight, however, and they
soon drifted apart. The British enipQ
Taliaman and Manchester, which were
at anchor in the stream, drifted toge her
and before they were hauled apart by
tuga damaged each other considerably.
The British Bhip Nereus broke adrift
from her berth at the long wharf, Oak
land, and fouled the British ship
Benicia and the schooner Laura Pike.
All three were severely damaged and
had to be cleared by tugs The lcng
wharf became unsafe, and the ship Are
thußa waa pulled out into the stream,
where ehe dropped anchor. The
Bchooner Maria Z. Kmith collided wi.n a
ecow in Mißsion bay. The Harri- jn
Btreet wharf was badly shaken by b» as
going clear over it. The whaling bark
William Bayle lost ono of her anchcra
and went Bailing down the bay. She
dropped another anchor in time tc ye
her from further injury.
The wind was accompanied by a pelt
ing rain which fell steadily for nearly 12
hours. The indications for tonight are
that there will be more rain and more
The telegraph wires are in bad shape,
and for a abort time San Francisco waa
cut off from communication with mott
of tbe outside world.
No Let Up in the fury of the Gale— Wide
spread Havoc.
San Francisco, Nov. 27.—The storm
continues tonight with almost unabated
fury. A heavy rain is falling and a high
wind ia blowing.
In addition to the damage to the ships
at anchor in the atteam and at the
wharves off San Francisco and Oakland,
shipping has suffered Beverely at Sau
salito and Tiburon, on the Marin county
shore. The damage at Tiburon alone is
estimated at from $20,000 to $30,000, and
probably as much more at Sausalito.
At both these places big ships and
Bteamers lie up for the winter, and they,
aa well as a great many yachts and
small boats, were hustled about by the
wind and sea in a most alarming man
At Tiburon the yacht Belle, valued at
about $7000, waa blown aehore and
pounded tv piecea. The yacht Duke waa
alao wrecked, aa well as a number of
house boats and small boats.
At Sausalito tbe big iron eteatner
George W. Elder dragged her anchor
and went on the rocks, where ehe
pounded a hole in her bottom. She was
pulled off by a tug, but is Btill in a dan
gerous position, and liable to go ashore
again it the wind changes. Half a dozen
big ships were run up on the mud fiats,
but their position ia not considered dan
gerous. The gasoline launch Marin was
driven under the big ferry boat Tamal
paia and sank. The yacht Nellie alao
ran into the Tamnlpais and wa3 badly
battered. The valuable steam launch
Mary McNeill waa driven ashore. The
Tamalpais Land and Water company's
wharf waa destroyed by heavy eeaß.
The damage to big ships on the San
Francisco and Oakland side of the bay
cannot be estimated until they go on
the dry dock for repairs. The big iron
ships Talisman, Beniciaand Nereus had
plates stove in and spara broken while
in collision. Hundreds ot email sail
and row boats were knocked to pieces
or eunk.
In San Francisco the wind did no
very great harm. Some trees were
blown down and chimneya toppled over.
The rain also caused a few eewers to
break and washed out gardens and
yards. At Golden Gate park the casino
was uprooted and plants and shrubbery
suffered aome injury.
The storm iB general throughout
Northern and Central California, but
beyond a few buildings unroofed, no
damage iB reported.

Clouds Prevent the Comet and Meteors
from Belog Seen.
Chicago, Nov. 27.—Local astronomers
were much disappointed today at being
unable to obtain a view of the comet
and the expected star shower. The sky
was overcast the entire day with heavy
gray clouds. Professor Hough of Dear
born observatory; said tonight: "There
has not been the slightest chance of
seeing the comet. It is not Biela's any
way, nor is it at all likely to collide with
tho earth ; in fact it is moving directly
away from our planet at the rate of 15
miles per second, and it is already 150,
--000,000 miles away. Dispatches from
many points throughout the west and
northwest state inability to see meteors
or tbe comet.
Nkw Haven, Ct., Nov. 27.—The Yale
observatory were on the
watch for a shower of meteors but they
were disappointed. No meteoric display
took place.

and Schlitz and Pabst (with four auxil
iaries), with a capital of $40,000,000, and
bonds to amount to $200,000, to supply
the world with beer, is a gigantic
enterprise which is being fathered by
the Rothschilds of England, and the
consummation of which is among the
possibilities. That it will be ultimately
accomplished, Mr. Adolpbus Buscb,
president of the Anheuser-Busch Brew
ing company, stated there is reason to
believe, and when seen by a reporter to
night, the millionaire brewer seemed
enthused over the proposition.

Caracas, Nov. 27.—A minister at the
capital today told a correspondent that
General Oreapo would maintain
full jurisdiction of Venezuela, and
especially its right to arrest criminals
on merchant ships in her waters. This
right will be more particularly insisted
upon when the fugitives are citizens of
Washington, Nov. 27.—Happily, it
appears from unofficial news received
from Venezuela, that the Mijares inci
dent is at an end, the Venezuelan gov
ernment having been silenced by the
presentation of the case made by Minis
ister Scruggs.
Mr. Shannon, United Statea minister

wae warranted in refusing.
A Mexican Festival Mas a Disastrous
Saltillo, Mex., Nov. 27.—The mayor
of Arteaga, a town 40 miles southeast of
here, arrived here this morning aud re
lates a thrilling accident that occurred
at Arteaga, yesterday, and the object of
his visit was to secure medic.il aid for
the unfortunate victims. The fall festi
val opened in Arteaga this week, the
feature of which is bull fights. The
great event of the week was postponed
until yesterday, when four wild bullß
were turned into the riDg at once.
About 4 o'clock, when over 3000
spectators were present, the bull
fighters took their places and the
animals were turned into the arena.
After working the bulla into a state of
| frenzy a matador attempted to Vill the
j first bull. The wounds were not fatal,
and the bellowing and wild capera of tbe
wounded animal stampeded the others,
and they made a united rush against the
barricade made for the protection of the
spectators. The barricade gave way and
the bulls rushed frantically into the
crowd, tossing the people right and left.
In the height of the excitement the
seats collapsed and roily 50 people sus
tained broken limbs and severe internal
injuries, while a number of others were
otherwise injured. The bulls killed one
person and wounded 10 others.
It Now Promises to Lead to Beneficial
Brussels, Nov. 27.—1t is now under
stood that the proposal Baron Alfred de
Rothschild of the British delegation will
submit to the monetary conference is a
well conceived and long thought of plan
for an international monetary agree
ment, and not a mere project of air.
There is a feeling of greater
confidence among tho delegates
that the conference will have
practical results. The attempt in
certain quarters to ridicule the confer
ence, and the false impressions conveyed
by certain European papers, is strongly
resented by delegates of all opinions.
Indeed, it caused the Russian delegate
tonight to announce his intention of
bringing the matter before the conven
tion tomorrow, and protest against the
circulation of such reports.

Paris, Nov. 27.—1t is reported here
on seemingly good authority that Baron
Hirsch's right hand was blown off

store, neatly trapped two amateur bur
glars last night. Yesterday it waß dia

ingresa. The grocera put out their
lights, aa usual, and went up-stairs, but
stole back, armiDg themselves with a
bung-starter and a cheese knile, re
spectively, to await the invadera. At

Zackery, one of the bank robbera who

brother George and the officer. George
was taken to Westburg tonight.
