He stated that not one false entry had been mach- in the hooks, ami that tin- only thing tampered with was the cash box, So far this has been found correct, and the directors tonight believe that the shortage will not exceed $35,000, the figures first announced. ah during today telegrams and let ters poured into the Hank of Ander sofi from hanks far ami near, from bankers* from cotton mill presidents anil from financiers offering assist? ance. One ha nit In Greenville, through it.-- president offered $100,000 if that much Were needed. The directors ap? preciate all the offers, hut the Hank ? a Anderson has surplus enough to ? hurge off the loss and not he Impair ? ti ?'!? crippled In tin- hast. When the doors of the bank opened for business this morning sphere wa* the usual amount of business to be transacted, but there was not the least semblance Of a "run." It seems that no one has lost confidence in th< i ank. and there Is no withdrawing of deposits. Ail Anderson!ans have expreese? sympathy for the defaulter's wife am 1 hlldren. Holleman's friends heri numbered i?> the hundreds am many of them have stated th:,i the; would bt glad of the opportunity 1? repay the shortage and allow Holle ?hui tu start lifo over again, if' whereabouts are unknown, hut hi rrlonds and relutlve* are trying to i<> cute him to have him return whe the) xv ill come to his assistance.

Boats were sent to their as? sistance late today and it was team ??(1 that tin- hon-?' In which they had taken refuse had been washed away. While it is Impossible to get an ac? curate list of the dead owing to th< fact that the register has always been kept at the pier, the best information obtainable is as follows: Cap!

The inhabitants of the few scattered houses in tin* low part of tiic island had already sought safety and tile vessels that had cleared and prepared to sail were riding at an< h >r in th? hay. The fury of th ? Stenn soon abated and the anxiety of those who enter? tained fears of another tidal wave were soon relieved. Small boys pad? dling around in the Hooded streets, even before the heavy wind had died down, presented a scene which die* pel led the alarm felt by the timid. So short was the duration of the storm that the Mai lory line steamer. Which was hooked to sail for New York shortly after noon. left on schedule time. It is impossible tonight to make an accurate estimate of the monetary damage. Few buildings were blown down, hut it is believed many ware? houses were Hooded and goods ruin? ed. The storm covered a wide area along the gulf coast. Some damage is reported as far south as Matagorda bay and us tar east as the parish of Cameron, La. Pears were entertained until to? night for the safety of the lit. Rev. Henry .\. Aves, a missionary bishop of the Protestant Episcopal church, who, with a large fishing party, was last heard from this morning at Fled Fish shoals, San JacintO bay. Worn lonighi was received that in-and Rev. P, S. Sear-- of Houston were safe at Morgan's Point. A fishing pier, seven miles from Galveston, was demolished by wind and waves. Thirty or 1" persons en Joying the day on the pier were res CUed by the pilot h..a Texas and brought to Galveston in safety. As a result of damage to the bridge that connects Gaheston with tie mainland communication by rail hn been cui off. Crews will work on th bridge all night, but it is not prob aide that trains will be allowed to over the structure until late tomor row.

Washington, July It.?Estabftshtng B new record f<T aviation in America, Orvllle Wright in the Wright eef? plane late today at Fort Meyer made a spectacular flight of one hour. 10 minutes. 4"> seconds duration. The longest previous flight was of 74 min? utes, made by Mr. Wright at Fort Meyer last fall. During the cnthe flight the ma Chine was under perfect control hut several times appeared to the spec ta? tors to he on the point of diving for ward. The machine traveled a distance of about TO miles, it was estimated by Wilbur Wright, and at one time dur? ing the flight the height attained, be? tween 260 and 280 feet, exceeded the highest point ever attained by are a/ ier-t han-air machine on the conti? nent. The most wonderful part of the (light was the execution of three com? plete "figure-eights," which required careful manoeuvering in directing the machine. A thrill passed through the specta? tors as tin- white flyer, apparently l?e ginning to dive to the earth, would regain its equilibrium and speed on? ward sround the oval above the pa> rade ground. After rounding the course half a hundred times. th? avia? tor directed the machine around the ? ?urs.' in small double circles of "fig* lire-eight." It was the tir?t time dur? ing this season, and the second time during his career that he has sum ut ??(1 ids maneover. To the amazement of the crowd the machine described a second eight and a third one, alter which it was guided back to its former course of large ovals. With the determination of making a longer flight than heretofore at? tempted, the ?Vrlghts oidered the aeroplane taken from its shed to the starting apparatus shortly after fv o'clock. Three members of President Taft's cabinet, Secretary of Navy Mey? er, Attorney General Wickersham and Postmaster General Hitchcock were on hand early to witness the nigh (a. In today's flight Mr. Wright met ever> 1 lulremenl set forth by the government except that of carrying one passenger and iris king the five mile- straight away run Wilbur Wright, replying to a com? ment that the (light today would hat 1 covered the width of the English . hannel which Hubert Latham un? successfully attempted to ?. roes yes? terday, said ii would have I een pos? sible for his brother to have crossed] from France attain without landing.
