WAsniXGTox, Oct. 8. General Wade
Hampton, commissioner of railroads, has
just ret nrned from an extended trip over
the (rovcrnmont-aldod roads, which come
nnder his supervision. The commissioner
says that he encountered in California a
jrreat deul of clamor for Roverument con
trol of not only the Vnion and Central
J'.-ielllc roads, but of all roads, '"srth of
these proiHisitions ure opinisod bv tlie
commissioner. "In the ilrst plae,"- he
raid, "the bonds on those roads are not
due until 17, and the povernnii-nt can
not forelisc until that time. Then it
liecomcs a question of expediency. If the
government should foreclose, it havinz
only the second mortprafre would be com
pelled to pc.y t lie lirst mortp-ajie, amount
ing tc many millions. Even then the kov-

The worst damage, however, was done
to property on Markham and Commerce

The streets are filled with tin roofs, elec
tric wires and other wreckage and it will
be several days before the extent of the
damage can he accurately known. The
large eotton warehouse situated at Second
and SMitt streets, own.nl bv .T. H. Bnoum,
was wrecked. It fell on the Western I'nion
telegraph ollicrc next door and wn-oked it,
thus cutting off nil telegraphic communi
cation with outside points. The city is in
the densest darkness and the streets are
veritable streams of mud.
Rescuing parties are busy senrehing for
the- wounded, but a list of casualties is ut
terly unobtainable. Among those known
to lie seriously and probably fatally in
jured are C. 1. M on rot;, member of the
Arkansas legislature, and Eaton.
Sam Smith, a prominent cotton buyer, is
also batily wounded. Others are known
to have been more, or less injuri!d, but
the names are not obtainable.
