Nothing had tw-en heard from the country south of Mobile up to the time the last wire to Mobile fulled. At 4:3" i yesterday afternoon the Western Union office In Mobile was abandoned, the water at that time lielng three feet deep In the operat lug room.

The storm which has leen sweeping the gulf coast from I'ensacola and moving westward during the past two days, has prostrated telegraph and telephone wires to such an extent that news from the outlying sect ions Is hard to get. The greatest fears have leeu entertained for the safety of the peo ple living at Port Kails, which Is at the mouth of the Mississippi river, and for the ships that started for sea just tiefore the storm legan. The wires to l'ort Kads have tecn prostrated since Tuesday night at 8 o'clock, at which time the storm which swept that sec tion was dcsi riUsl as a regular tidal wave, similar to the one which re united in such a wul ioss of life In 1S!KL All the iwopk' living on the east tin 11k of the river had moved np to the Jump," which Is 15 miles from the mouiii of the river. The house of n man named Cobden half a mile alnve the quarantine station was swept away, and the 15 tucmtcrs of the family, including nine children, were drowned. The quarantine build lugs were luidly damaged but no on injured. The big towlxuit Chamber lain was driven high and dry in the marsh, but her crew are safe. The government ttoat General Relse is be lie veil to have been lost. Captain O'ltrlen'a house was swept away, but lie was on the boat which was believ ed to le outside. The piledrlver at Iort Kads was sunk. The steamboat liuras was driven ashore near the lightliouse, and later It was reported that she had sunk. Her crew were said to have been saved. The tugtio&t Velisco went down to Pass A I'Outre, which is the easternmost mouth of the river, with two barges. When last seen she had her decks awash, and is lelieved to have goue down. If this Inat and her barges have been lost, 20 more people have been drowned There are numerous reports of Individ wal casualties all along the river from liuras down to the passes. Not a single vessel has passed np the river since the storm, and feart are entertained for the ones whicl are expected. There is serious appre bension concerning the Chenire Cam Inada and Grand Isle sections on the south Louisiana coast west of th Mississippi river, where 2.000 live were lost in by the tidal wave. Up to this writing no word has been received from that section, which Is largely Inhabited by fishermen, mostly Chinese and Malays. Ordered to Panama. Washington, D. C., August 16.

Much Talk of Reviving the Proposed Evansvilie & Richmond Railroad. bout ten years ago a number jrf ieru i'aprfa.Tigcsrt.ho owners of i railroad running into Evansvilie from the west, proposed building a rail line from Evansvilie to Rich mond. They completed the survey by the way of Greensburg and were to enter- Richmond from the wet-t coming through Centerville. The grading of the entire road bed was finished when the project was abandoned. Since then the own ers of the road have retained posses sion of the entire right of way; have kept the weeds cut on the road bed and have been prompt in the yearly pajment of their taxes. Why the company has undergone this expense for so many years has been a matter of conjecture, but a movement to re vive the construct ion of the E. A 11 gives an explanation of the company 's actions. The ( apitalists at the head of the proposed railroad are now in an excellent financial condition The railroad business in the states of the middle west is on a boom and th prospects for such an enterprise at the prtsent time are brighter than ever before. The practical failure ol gas for manufacturing purposes in the gas belt will in a short time make it necessary for the people of Indiana to use coal for fuel. This will open the coal fields of southern Indiana which lie directly in the lin. of the proposed railroad. Thes fields would bring to the roac a vast amount of shipping in the coal trade besides the advantages of connecting with the other railroads at Richmond. The late boom in our city ha. probably aroustd the owners of the right-of-way from Evansvilie to s; realization of the fact that while they are buildiug a road through a por tion of the state that is still open they will at the same time be mak ing connections with a promising manufacturing center. As the road bed is still in excellent condition, all tl at is necessary will be to build th bridges atd lay the track. While the project cannot be regarded as a definite thing, yet there are many strong reasons for believing that tne road will be built. $10,000 for a Filly. Lexington, Ky., August 16 Thos. W.

The church looked beautiful in all i s i ewaes.- I e andson e lesignin; , . he t.iutely coluu.ns, the. &ef4;lights. tie picturesque windows, the altar. uf pure white and gold all flombined to make the scene a grand oe to be hold. . i The opening nniiiber, th Pre- lude," thundered forth withja power that seemed limitless, and swell fter swell went out until that great struc ture was ebullient with unadulter ated harmony, ine audience, was almost breathless, so pt rfeefc svas the s.ilecce, and so charmed w4e they with the peals of the new orgfcn. The musical numbers wer' then rendered according to the rbgranj as published the other di! The most beautiful selections lundered were Allegro Cantabile, FiflU Sym phony; "Concert Overatu'. and ' "Taunhauser, Fan tasia. ' , fa - the various numbers fairly shaking j the large edifice, so powerfully grand were they. . The "Gloria," Mozart's Twelfth Mass, "Inflammatus Et,'' 4 'Regna Terrae,'" Hallelujah, and Te Deum were magnificently rendered Tne following persous constituted the choir, especially trained for last night's program: Soprano Misses Elizabeth Orer manu, Lizzie Niemeir, Martha Gei r, T. resaBahlmai n, Frances Engelber', Liliie SchwegnDiinn, Anna Scheier, Henrietta Wiikemeir.

Roell was a gem of pure though t and high sentiment. lie spoke of the music of the olden times, in thf temples, of, the great preparation Solomon made for the dedication of the temple to God. Then, the speak er looking at the clock before him in the steeple said: The clock tells me that at this time one year ago the hand of God was seen in the destruc tion of this temple of worship old St. Andrew's. We were made to feel sad and mourned our loss very greatly. But io less than a year the temple has been rebuilt, and out of the ashes of the old has risen this magnificent structure devoted ai.d dedicated to the worship of Almighty God. With the completion of the church there was something lacking the organ. It was soon put in place, and it is of the most recent invention and the best of the kind that money can buy. It is bing dedicated to the worship of God. No words of mine can exag irerate the power that music hasover the soul of man. There is music in every h n; the moaning of the stately pines, the pealing of the ihunder. the rolling of the ocean 11 is musical. Music is divine it ws made in heaven. Thus when we consider the nature of music, the philosophy of music, do we find that it i s of all appeals to the soul the most powerful it causes the' spirit of tne affections of men to rise to nobler enorts and to thrill with sublime emotions and influences. Therefore it is , of all sciences, the most noble and the most God like, and the grandest that can be cultivated by man on this earth. He then referred to how the Catholic church had fostered mcsic for 1,5 K years, advanced it and cherished it under all circumstances; spoke of the Gregorian music, how Pooe Gregory had set a pace that the world has ever followed. The ad dress was a scholarly effort, the sonorous voice of Father Roell filling the sacred edifice. The singing by the choir was highly commented on and the work of Prof Donley, the organist, and ProL Richter, the di rector, brought forth the praise of all. Every detail was carried out with great precision by all actively en- gaged in the work of makiDg the ef fort me success mat i was. be from twelve to si -num. ocrm perm ORGAN PEIIING LOOKING FOR HELP Toople at Colon Anxiously Awaiting Arrival of the 3Iaeliais.
