SOUTHERN STORM NEWS.
Aftermath of the Great
Details of the Disaster Still
Sickening* Tales of Death, Suffering
The Very Ground Torn and Bant by the
Foroe or tho Tempest—Hundreds
of Corpses Unburled—Boenes
By tho Associated Press.
New Orleans, Oct. o,—»The aftermath
of the great atorm continues to pour in,
bringing additional detaila of death,
Buffering and destruction. On Cheniere
Caminda it reached the climax of hor
rors. It contained-one town, Oaminda
vi lie, of about 1800 people, the majority
fishermen. /On Sunday evening there
were 1200 dwellings within the limits;
today 25 only remain standing, and of
these not one ig uninjured. The very
ground upon which they were built is
torn and rent. Tbe pier has disappeared.
Only a heap of oyster shells marks tbe
spot where it stood. Not a leaf remains
upon tbe luxuriant shade trees, and tbe
trees for the most part are prostrated,
and growing fields blotted from the face
of tbe landscape. The grief-stricken
survivors come and go silently, or stop
to mutter a few words of condolence. It
ia not an unoinal thing to see ragged
fishermen embrace each other in tears.
HUNDREDS OF NBW-MADE GRAVES.
Fathers and mothers are burying their
sons and daughters, and vice verso. Aa
many as 10 people are placed in one
grave. Hundreds of bodies are still un
buried, some under wrecked buildings,
othera floating on tbe bay. Tbe brave
little band of grave-diggers ia exhausted.
They have already buried on the island
950 persons, and tbe work ia not yet
done. In the house of L. Terrebonne
the grave-diggers found hia body and
that of bis wife and six children. In the
rear of tbe ialand hundreds of little
mounds mark tbe resting places of those
wbo were killed in tba terrible storm.
Men, woman and children joined in the
search for the dead. With polee and
hooka and ropes tbey drew corpses from
tbe water or dragged them from the
debris and bnriad them.
HORRIBLY MANGLED CORPSEK.
In Madame Dueros' house were found
fully 60 bodies, all mangled in each a
manner that tbey could not be identi
fied. Madame Cidioc and daughter were
found many yards away from tbeir
ruined home, in which were the bodies
of ber eon and another daughter. Artbnr
Bizani and Leo Paul, their wives and
children, with numerous cousins, aunts
and other relatives, were all drowned in
their homestead. The family consisted
of 25 people. Tbe bodies were buried
in three graves. Thomas Lorio was
killed by a falling tree. Florentine
Broußaard and two children were
drowned. Iv Broussard'a house Ferdin
and Brousßatd, Bernard Broustard,
Regina Brousaard and Bernardo Broue
eard were drowned. Hundreds of bodies
have been found since Monday and they
were buried without a prayer.
AN APPEAL FOR AID.
The New Orleans board of trade today
telegraped to tbe leading boards of the
country, reciting the terrible disaster
and tbe fact tbat the survivors are pen
niless and In dire distress. "The peo
ple of Louisiana will bury the dead and
feed the starving, but appeal to the gen
erous pnblic to assist in contributions
which will enable thousands of worthy
people to again follow their vocations
and support their families," says the
telegram. Subscriptions cf every char
acter will be received and be distributed
by the executive committee of the board
of trade, acting jointly with committees
of other commercial bodies.
CROWDS OF REFUGEES.
This morning the logger Evelina ar
rived, crowded with refugees from Cav
arnache on Grand bayou. Cavafnacbe
was completely wiped out, but none of
the inhabitauts were lost. At Bayou La
Fonde 11 people were killed. At Bayou
Henry the latest repoats place the loss
of life at (15. The suffering at these
three places ie terrible. At Bayou La
Fonde the people are eating hogs, chick
ens and other animals that perished in
the storm. The greatest suffering is
from lack of water. Tbe Chinese colony
near Boyon Henry was totally wiped
out. Over 40 Chinamen perished.
SCENES OF DESOLATION.
The Picayune's rslief Bteamer returned
this morning from Grand I-jie and Che
niere. Tbe Grand Isle hotel, with its
contents, valued at $75,000, waa totally
destroyed. The inhabitants of both
islands are in need of clothing, water
and provisions. Nine hundred bodies
were found floating in the waters of
Grand lake. At Bayon Caminda a fam
ily of six were washed to sea on a rait
and back again wbeu the wind changed.
The loss of life at Cbeniere is not less
than 700 and may reach 1000. Only 18
persons were killed on Grand isle, though
tbe destruction of property is great.
GUKAT LOSS OF SHIPPING.
Shipping suffered to an extent almost
incredible. Hardly less tban 350 craft
were wrecked, and in many instances
all of the crews were lost. Nine out of
ten of those who were saved underwent
a terrible experience. More tban 200
sailors were lost al different points. The
total property loss will run into mill
ions. An arriving schooner at Biloxi
reported many bodies floating on the
shore at Cat island. Ship island and
Chsndilenr island. Not less than 70 ol
them war* coemted 02 Cat island aloue.
Tbe American bark Holer. 15., with her
crew, the American brig Roselia Smith
and crew, and American echooqerUnion
and crew are reported lost. Five large
ships oi Chandilsur island are complete
wracks, but the names are not yet
known, and the fate of the crews is a mys
tery. Before the storm Sunday there
were over 100 craft anchored around
Biloxi; only three survived.
The Reward is Safe.
Washington, Oct. 6.—The rumor that
the revenue cutter Seward waa lost in
the Gulf of Mexico during the recent
storm, and all on board lost, has not
been verified. On the contrary, reports
are received from New Orleans of the
good service which the Seward has been
performing ia carrying supplies to the
lighthouses after the recent storm, which
wonld seem to contradict the rumor that
sbe was lost.
A Cyclone in Arkansas.
Camden, Ark., Oct. 6. —News reached
this city last night that a cyclone passed

ports are meager. A cabin is known to

War Finally Declared Against King
Lobenzula—Great Excitement In
T.ondoo Over the Turn
By tho Associated Press.
Cape Town, Oct. 6.—A dispatch from
the front says the Matabeles attacked a
patrol of tbe Becbnnaland police near
Shaeto. Tho attack waß replied to and
after a sharp skirmish the Matabeles
fled to the bush. The affair derives im
portance from the fact tbat it was di
rected against tbe imperial forces which
are protecting Chief Krrama, and also
indicates that King Lobengulu intends
to attack Tati and the country under
government coDtrol. The police will
be strongly enforced by Khama's
watchers, and some eevere fighting
is anticipated. An official communica
tion haa been received, saying it has
been decided to force tbe imperial troops
to occupy Tati as soon as possible. Vol
unteers, well armed and mounted, are
flocking from all parts of tbe colony to
forts Victoria, Charter and Tati, and
news of an encounter between the
Matabeles and colonists is expected at
any moment. The colonists are few in
numher, though well armed, but they
will find it no easy matter to cope with
the Matabele warriors. Tbe population
of Matabeleland is about 300,000 and
every man of age is a soldier.
Londoß, Oct. 0 —Sir Henry Lock, high
commissioner and commander-in-chief
of Cape Colony, has telegraphed to the
colonial office confirming the news re
ceived here regarding the Matabeles
outbreak. The news caused the greatest
excitement here, ane it waa sjggested to
members of the government that ener
getic action ia expected, aa the people
are growing angry at the apparent
coldnesa of Gladstone's ministerial
associates. This evening it was an
nounced that Marquiß Ripon, secretary
of state for colonies, cent a dispatch no
tifying the officials to consider the affair
at Sbaato aa a hostile act against Great
Britain, which justified a declaration of
war against KingLobengula of Matabele
land. Tbe announcement caused the
greatest excitement at tbe clubs, hotels
and theaters, where England's latest
"little war" ia being eagerly discussed
The Spanish Anarchist Meats Death
Like a Btolo.
Barcelona, Oct. (>.—Pallas, the an
archist who on September 24th made an
attempt on tbe life of Captain-General
Martinez Campos, by throwing two
bombs at him, was shot at 9 o'clock this
morning, according to the sentence of
the court-martial which tried him.
From first to last be refused the minis
trations of the priests; he enoered at
tbeir exhortations, laughed at their pic
tures of the future state of tbe unre
pentant, and marched to the place of
execution einging an anarchist song, as
if to drown the words of the holy fathers
of the church. The execution took
place in an enclosure near the castle.
A large body of troops of all
arms formed three sides of a
square, facing tbe death wall against
w'nich Pallas was placed. Outside'the line
of troops a crowd of people withered,
though ft was not as great as it wonld
have been, bat for the fact that the
place of execution was not announced in
advance, with the view of preventing
Pallas' anarchist friends from plotting a
dynamite outrage in connection with it.
The preliminaries arranged, the firing
squad was drawn np; tbe guns were
loaded and Pallas was placed against tbe
wall, with his back to the firing squad.
A sharp ordet was given; the guiiß
came to the shoulder and aa the com
manding officer's sword flashed down
ward, a volley rang out and Pallas fell
forward, dead. Tben his body was
lifted np, the troops marched away and
all was over.

If Yoorhees fails in tbo effort, or fails iv
