Jacksonville. Fla.. Oct. 2. The West
Indian hurricane which entered Flor
ida at Cedar Keys Wednesday morning
and swept through the southern part
ot the state In a northeasterly direc
tion left death and destruction In Its
path. Owing to the prostration of tel
egraph wires and the delay of trains,
due to washout, only meager reports
have been received. and yet, meager
as those reports are, tiiey show that
over twenty towns and villages have
been wrecked, and that thirty or forts'!
persons have been killed, while jjrofc
sbly thrice as many juore received
wounds more or less serious.
At 4 o'clock in the morning the hur
ricane, which had been churning the
gulf, left the water and swooped down
upon Cedar Keys, a town of 1.500 in
habitants about 100 miles southwest of
Jacksonville. Thlrty-slx hours have
elapsed since the storm struck Cedar
Keys, but no word has yet been re
ceived directly from that place as to
tne damage done or the number of
lives lost. No trains have been able to
reach there because the tracks are cov
ered with heavy timber.
Cedar Keys Is Wiped Out.
The only report from Cedar Keys
comes by way of Gainesville, fifty miles
northeast of the gulf town, and it is
to the effect that Cedar Keys has been
swept away and many persons killed
and wounded. This report reached
Gainesville by courier from Wllliston.
which is twenty miles north of Cedar
Keys. The report Is hardly exagger
ated, as Cedar Keys was directly in
the path of the hurricane and received
its full force as it leaped raging from
the gulf. A relief party left Gaines
ville for Cedar Keys and details of the
disaster that has overtaken the gulf
town will soon be known. After demol
ishing Cedar Keys the storm, moving
in a northeasterly direction, struck
Wllliston, a village of 400 Inhabitants.
At that place eleven houses .were
wrecked, one person killed, and fifteen
wounded, some, it is feared, fatally.
HI Convicts Are Crashed.
Near Wllliston is a large turpentine

draw the condition that none but union
men should be employed if the mana
gers would raise the scale to $ !. Many
of the members were averse to this,
saying It would have no result, but It
was warmly advocated by Secretary
Dewar and others, whose Inlluence is
very strong. What the final decision
was has not been mad:- public. A grand
Jury has been called by the district

that quite a body of armed men who
had apparently left an incoming train

Burlington, Oct. 2. Fifty years ago
Iowa became a state, having previous
ly occupied a prominent position
among the wltd western territories. In
honor of this semi-centennial anniver
sary 20,000 people gathered in this city
Thursday to Inaugurate an eight days'
celebration. Burlington was selected
as the place of holding the celebration
on account of Its prominence In terri
torial affairs, being a number of years
the seat of government.
The opening day. Governor's Day,
was honored by the presence of Gov
ernor Drake and staff, several ex
governors, Vice President Stevenson,
and a large number of other prominent
citizens of the state and nation. The
day opened with a salute of guns at
sunrise. At 9:30 a reception was ten
dered to Governor Drake. Vice Presi
dent Stevenson, and other distin
guished guests at the Hotel Delaro. At
10:30 the grand parade, consisting of
Governor Drake and staff and promi
nent guests, escorted by four compan
ies ot state militia, citizens in cartages,
and numerous handsome floats, passed
through the principal streets, crowded
with masses of people and profusely
decorated. At noon all the bells and
whistles In the city broke forth In a
welcome to visitors. The afternoon ex
ercises were held In the large coliseum
at Crapo park. While the parade was
passing the reviewing stand contain
ing Governor Drake and staff and fifty
others, the stand collapsed, throwing
all to the ground. Injuring many of
them, but none fatally. County Treas
urer Burros of Burlington had a leg
broken: Fred L. Poor, city clerk of
Burlington; Major Wyman of Ottum-
a; James D. Rowen of the governor's
staff, painfully bruised. Others only
scratched and bruised. Governor
Drake was not injured.
The accident had a frinhtful appear
ance to spectators. Vice President
Stevenson and Governor Drake went
down clasped in each other's arms and
It was several minutes before they
could be extricated from the strug
gling mass of people. The greatest ex
citement prevailed for a time and It
was a wonder no one was trampled to
death. Ex-Governor Sherman was
found lying under the debris, a large
plank across his neck, but was rescued
without serious Injury. Miss Drake,
the governor's daughter, was not in
jured as at first reported. A number
of ladles were slightly injured.

history of the road. One man Is dead,
two fatally Injured and several others

the rate of over one hundred feet to
