lic's special from New Orleans Bays:
The return of several relief parties sent

There is great complaint throughout
the Bayou Cook section of the stench of
the bodies lying in the swamp. A large
number have been buried, but there are
still over "00 exposed. The damage at
Chandlier islands is more serious than
thought at first. Nearly all the vessels
anchored there were wrecked. The
United States quarantine station and
the transfer steamer Walsh were des
troyed and everybody in quarantine lost
except the United States physicians.
The loss to the government is $130,000.
The steward, nurse and three patients
wero diowned.
Relief for tbe sufferers poured in to
day. The city of New Orleons Bnb
scribed $2500, and the parish authorities
of Jefferson and Plaquemine voted
money and at once sent a relief expedi
tion. A dozen luggers reached New Or
leans from portions of the storm country
today, all crowded with refugees, and
there are now between 200 and 300 in
town.

lieved approximately full details are
now at hand. In the Pointe ala Hache
country tbe death list has swollen to 80,

groes. The property damage there is
$100,000. At Cheneiere" the popula
tion was abont 1400. and the
loss of life is 900 to 1000.
Seventy-two persons were drowned in
the Chinese camps on Bayou Senet and
Bayou Andre. The estimated aggregate
loss of life in the storm is between 1200
and 1500. Tbe property lose is several
million dollars. There were 300 or 400
fishing craft, of which nearly half were
wrecked.
This cripples the oyster Industry and
an oyster famine for a time in .this city
is looked for.
Filty-Beven bodies were found in tho
vicinity of Grand Prairie and the old
quarantine station.
At Bayou Dupont 10 persons were
drowned. Collins are out of tbe ques

CONSTERNATION IN RIO.
THE BOMBARDMENT OF THE CITY
CONTINUED.
Frightful Outrages Perpetrated by Peix
oto's Soldiers—lnhabitants Fly
ing In Terror from
the Capital.
New York, Oct. s.—The Herald's
Montevideo special says: Wojd is just
received from Rio that the bombard
ment of the city by the rebel fleet,
begun .yesterday, continued without
cessation all day, shot and shell from
the ships being thrown into tbe city,
while the batteries manned by Peixoto's
force returned the fire. The greatest
alarm prevails in tbe Brazilian capital
which is in an absolute etate of panic.
Business is entirely suspended; the
bankß are cloced; the bourse is entirely
deserted; workshops and railways are
shut down, and every man, woman and
child whe can do co is fleeing from the
city.
Frightful outrages are being perpe
trated by Peixoto's soidicre, who are
committing murder and robbery and are
apparently beyond restraint. They
killed many defenseless persons and
carried on a general plandeiing raid on
stores and private residences. Tbeir ex
cesses increased in ferocrty during the
panic caused by the bombardment of
the city. Squads of armed soldiers are
scouring tbe city in search of recruits.
Men of all classes are being pressed into
Peixoto's service.
All the English residents of the city
have been warned by tbe British minis
ter to escape from Rio de Janeiro, as the
fleet has given notice of its intention to
continue the bombardment. Postal fa
cilities are suspended and Peixoto iB
searching all the mail. Peixoto is
blamed for drawing the fire of the fleet
upon the town, as the sympathies of the
efiitiie city are with Mello. Peixoto
opened Are from the shore —batteries on
the fleet which replied to his guns.
The commanders of the foreign men
of-war in the harbor remain inactive.
Decisive battles are momentarily ex
pected in the vicinity of the cities of Rio
Grande do Sol. Port Alegre and Pelotas.
Lonoon, Oct. 5. —A high British
official has received a dispatch from
Rio de Janeiro Baying the insurgent are
again bombarding the city.
The diepatcn adds that the bands and
business offices are closed and business
is at a standstill. In reference to the
statement that the foreign admirals were
undecided es to what they should do
in view of the Brazilian government's
preparation for detente, a high official
in London eeys the action of Brazil in
erecting forts in the city made inter
vention extremely difficult. He thought
unless Brazil abandoned the new de
fenses intervention on the part ef the
foreign ships would be impossible.
A number of dispatches were received
today from Rio, including one by the
Bank of England, making no mention
of the bombardment. On the contrary
they say everything is quiet; banks are
reopening and business resuming.

A TAME DRIFTING MATCH.
Bad Beginning of the Big
Yacht Race.
The First Heat Resulted in No
Contest.
A Lack of Wind Caused the Trial to
Be a Fizzle.
The Valkyrie Proved Herself to Be the
Better Drifter — Thonaanda of
Tlrad and Disappointed
Spectators.
By the Press.
New York, Oct. s.—Raffled by light
winds, tbe yacbts Vigilant and Valkyrie,
which started today on the first of tbe
international races for tbe America's
enp, were compelled to abandon tho
contest. The English cutter was then a
mile in advancn of the Vigilant, and tbe
point from which they Btarted about six
hours before was yet mileß away. It
was a keen disappointment to tbe thou
sands who had stood by the rails and
clung to a vantage ground on board of a
steamer all day. The overpowering at
traction of the big rnce between the
British and American prize winners
drew the biggest flotilla that ever sailed
to Sandy Hook to see yachts race, and
every boat was crowded, too. From tbe
deck of the steamer Republic Associated
Press reporters dispatched carrier
pigeons with the earliest news of tbe
start, finish and progress of the con
test.
There was as a matter of fact
no actual contest between the yachts,
bat under today's conditions it hsa to
admitted the Valkyrie had every
thing her own way. The little wind
prevailing waa due northwest and the
regatta committee decided that the boats
should start away to tbe leewprd for the
first 15 miles and return to the wind
ward. The international racers, lying
close to the starting point, were busy
with preparations till well on to 11
o'clock, when they began to make sail.
There was a general remark tbat the
Vigilant's sail area was greater than
that of her opponent. When the pre
paratory gun was fired, the Valkyrie
came aronnd and fonnd a position under
the Vigilant's lee qnarter. Botb boats
then beaded for the line. It waa only
40 seconds after the starting gun was
fired that the Vigilant got over the line.
The English boat was about sis lengths
behind. When two miles out the
center-boarder gained half a minute of
time apparently.
During-the first two miles tbe breese
freshened up a bit, but scarcely had the
spnrt made itself known than it died out
and left less air than prevailed previous
ly. From then the boats entered into a
drifting match. They were about six
miles out, with tbe Vigilant pretty
nearly half a mile ahead, when the acci
dent of the day occurred. The Vigilant
was seen to point off to leeward, as
though about to enter new waters. The
appearance of a row boat gave foundation
for the belief that the American yacht
had lost a man overboard and was lying
to to pick bim up. This opinion was
lost in the minds of those who held it
when they sow the American boat con
tinue to leeward. It transpired later
that the boat had simply lost the wind
and could not'hold her helm.
It was full; a qnarter of an hour be
fore the Vigilant made indication of
picking up her heels again. By that
time her adversary was so far ahead
that it was generally conceded that the
English boat must win the race unlera a
good stiff breeze should epring up. The
wind began to haul to the south, and the
yachts had to make a tack to reach the
outer buoy. In this work the Vigilant
gained no little on the Valkyrie. The
Valkyrie rounded the buoy amid the
sbriekings of steam whistles.
Twenty-six minutes after this the
Vigilant made the tarn with even
greater clamor. She was a mile behind,
and had to allow over a minute and
three-quartarß. If it had been a run
home, it iB doubtful if the Vigilant with
her poor handling to the outer mark,
could overcome the obstacles. When
about half tbe homeward journey was
completed, Lord Donraven, who was on
his own boat, hailed a tug, asked for a
tow line and was brought back to the
bay nnder steam power. Almost simul
taneously did Mr. Isslin on the Vigilant
determine to do the same tiling.
There will be no" race tomorrow, bat
another attempt will be made Saturday.
LoNnoN, Oct. 5. —The greatest interest
is taken in England in the race between
tbe Valkyrie and Vigilant. The various
clubß and hotels and other resortß at
which it was poesible to obtain news of
the race wero thronged nntil midnight.
Itubsrta Goe* Ahead.
New York, Oct. s.—The series of
billiard matches between Roberts and
Ives was continued today. Ives played
poorly and Roberts again went ahead.
When the afternoon's play was over

the evening game Roberts ran out in
..the 47tb inning, with an unfinished

Indianapolib, Ind., Oct. s.—The Atbl
serious outbreak cince the strike of tbe
boiler-makers on tbe Big Four began,
occurred at the Monrfield shops today.
If a gnard appeared he received a ehower
of rocks and was compelled to retire, by
yonng men who sympathized with the
strikers. A policeman who was being

bullet struck a man named Stamm in
the hand. Str.nim showed his bleeding
hand, and it caused much indignation.
Tonight when a train with "scabs"
aboard str.rted for the city, a crowd
howled and some one threw a stone. In a
moment hundreds of stones were thrown
against the car. A special officer stepped
to the car door and tired into the crowd of
school children standing on the side
walk. They escaped injury, bat J. B.
Pitts, a fireman, was shot and fatally
wounded. The firing aroused tho in

By the Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. s.—On motion of
Voorhees tho Senate at once proceeded
to executive, session, for the considera
tion of presidential appointments for
positions in territories which violated
the homo rule plank in the Democratic
platform. Speeches wero made in oppo
sition to the appointments, by Hill of
New York, Dairis and Washburn of
Minnesota and others.
Mills made a speech criticising such
appointments in general as a violation
of the' Democratic platf jrm. Davis and
Washburn spoke specifically cf outside
appointments to Minnesota, particularly
that of R. M. Allen of Illinois te agent
for the White Earth Indian?.
Some of the president.'.] friends de
fended the appointment on the ground,
that the appointments so rnad/e were all
of a B-trictiy national character. Voor
hees and Palmer spoke in this line. The
opponents of confirmation believe they
can defeat tho administration. They
count on all the Republicans and on sen
ators Hili and Murphy oj New York,
