Galveston, Tex., July 21.' -Ten dead
i> the t'?tai number of ii\es lost, so
far as i< known, in the hurricane
which swept .-vor the Gulf of Mexico
and struck Qalveeton this morning
and continued until alter midday.
While the city of Qalveeton was held
safe against the fry of the storm by
the new nea wall, far out in the gulf,
on Tarpt n Ashing pier, seven milet
from the city, where the storm whip?
ped over the jetty Into the hay. 10
persona were washed from the rocky
promotoriea Into the gulf. Boats to?
night are searching the hay for bodie
hut so far have been unsuccessful.
Those drowned ware members of a
Ashing party and employes of the
Tarpon pier, marooned from the jet?
ties. 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! Bettlson and wife, Edward
Lewis, c. H, Dalley, circulating man?
ager of the Galveston Tribune, form
erly ol Cl Icago, Ray Teetshorn of
Houston, and four negroes. The
others are nknown.
Ft lends In Galveston set forth a
taint hope that it might have been
possible tiwit all or u pari of the part
on the pier might have secured
wreckage from the pier and flouted
to the Bollver shore.
in view of this report the Inunch
Clifton, owned by Capt. Bettlson,
made the trip to Bollver this evening,
returning shortly after 7 o'clock, thi
captain, however, reporting thai n<
trace of the party had been found.

Ing and warnings were sent out. j
When wind and rain arrived several
hours later, they found Galvestou pre*
pared. 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?
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

P, S. Sear-- of Houston were safe at

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
