Probably IVo Danger of Epidemic.
The Houston Post has printed a list of
4434 nnmes of people who lost their lives in
the Galveston storm. It is noted that the
list of dead contains the names of very fewr
prominent men; this is accounted for by
the fact that they lived in the centre of the
city, which is higher, and for which reason
tbey had opportunity to escape before the
storm reached their houses. The poorer
classes of the people in the city lived in the
east and west ends, and along the water
front, and had little warning of the fate
which destroyed them. The railroads are
making active preparations to resume busi
ness, and several officials of the lines run
ning into Galveston ore in the city. A
president, of one company estimates the loss
to railroads alone at $5,000,000 or $0,000,
It ia conservatively estimated that the
loss of human life in the Galveston disaster
will exceed 0000, with half that number
wounded. Gov. Bayers has received the
following official report signed at Galves
ton hv Mavor Jones. Congressman It. B.
Hawley and Gen. McKibben, commander of
the department of Texas!
After the fullest possible investigations
here we fe'el justified in saying to you, and
through you to the American people, that
no such disaster has overtaken any commu
munity or section in the history of our
pnnntrr. The loss of life is aDDalling and
ran never be accurately determined. It is
Animated at fiOOO to 8000 Doonle. There is
not a home in Galveston that has not been
injured, while thousands have been de
ntroved. The nronertv loss represents ac
cumulations of 00 years, and more millions
than can be safely stated. Under these
conditions, with 10.000 Deocle homeless and
destitute, with the entire population under
a stress and strain difficult to realize, we
appeal directly in the hour of our great
emergency to the sympathy and aid of
The treneral situation at Galveston is de
cidedly better. The state health officer be
lieves there is now no danger of an epi
demic. Emergency hospitals have been es
tablished in every ward, and every effort
is being made to provide the best of care
for the sufferers. Large gangs continue to
work clearing the streets, and good pro
gress is being made. The water works
have been sufficiently restored to provide
an ample supply for all needs. Complete
telegraph service is in operation. So much
progress has been made toward clearing up
the wreckage in the city that Gen. McKib
ben has decided that his presence is no
longer necessary, and will leave for Hous
ton. Since Adjutant General Scurry as
sumed police direction of affairs, looting
and nlunderine have ceased. No one has
been shot, and order prevails throughout
The Rig Coal Strike.
SO Per Cent of the 143,000 Men In the
Anthracite Ileglon Stopped Work
The great strike of mine workers in the
anthracite coal fields of Pennsylvania,
which represent practically the hard coal
oumut of the world, began Monday.
According to President Mitchell of the
United Mine Workers of America, who is
personally directing the strike from his
headquarters at Hazelton, the success of
the four days' effort to tie up the mines ex
ceeded the expectations of the strike leadx
The hard coal region is divided into four
large districts, the Lackawanna, Wyoming,
Lehigh and Schuylkill regions. In the first
two, representing nearly 00,000 men, the
tie-un it. nracticailv complete, only one
mine employing a few hundred men being
operated, and this the strikers say they
hope to close soon.
In the Lehigh region about 8000 of the
16.000 mine employes have quit work.
Principally because the uuion has com
paratively little strength in the Schuylkill
region, and the workmen there have no
decided grievances, as in other districts,
the strike was not general among the 60,-
000 men employed. Indications point to
the closing of some mines in this district
that were operated early in the week, des
pite the assertions of the officials of the
Philadelphia and Beading Coal and Iron
company and other companies operating
the region that they will continue their
collieries in operation.
China Negotiating for Peace,
The desire of China to aotually begin
negotiations for peace was evidenced Mon'
day in a despatch from Prince Ching, de
livered by minister wu to me state depart
ment. Prince Ching states that he has
been clothed with full authority, along
with Li Hang Chang, to negotiate for
peace, and expresses a desire to proceed in
the matter, and aslts Minister vvu to sub'
rait a request to the secretary of state to
send instructions to Minister Conger to be'
gin the negotiations at once. No immedi
ate response to the request for instructions
to Minister Uonger can be given, as Prince
Ching's request will have to be laid before
the President and sufficient time given to
consider the question of his credentials, aa
well as the desirability of proceeding at
Gen. Chaffee's telegram, speaking of
Russian railroad construction in China, is
regarded as highly important in view of the
disclosure of the purpose of the Russian
government to reconstruct the road from
Taku to Tien-Tsin and thence to Pekin,
showing, it is believed, the expectation of
the Russian government that at least some
Russian force will be maintained at Pekin
through the winter.
Wu Ting Fang, the Chinese Minister to
this country, will present in the October
Century "A plea for fair Treatment" In
behalf of his fellow-countrymen.
The losses by forest fires in Hancock
county. Maine, are estimated at $7r,000.
The flames ate so deeply into the land that
lumbermen say It will not support another
growth of timber in 70 years.

the United States and in Germany, prefer

subscriptions. Payments for the loan will
be distributed over a considerable period,
and will be entirely In bills or exchange,

The money market, therefore, is not likely

An accident during the descent of John
Sawyer in his parachute at the Point of

Sawyer had descended to within 20 feet of

rapid rate and within a few feet of earth,
he was thrown against a pile of railroad

would have a notable precedent for such
action in the retreat of the Freneh army

January, 1871, at which time about 80,000

in South Africa is so near its end as to
leave the British government practically

From tha St, Albans Messenger.
If the people of the state of Vermont are
afraid to face the Issue Involved in the sub
mission of the prohibitory law to a popu
lar vole, It Is time tbo fact was known, if
we are to go on for tne next n&it century
as we have for the GO years past, haltlog
and eblftlnc between two opinions, amy-
dallylnc and procrastinating witu a law
that has never been honestly enforced and
never will be, If we are thus forever to
play fast and loose with cur political con
sciences and biennially send men to the
General assembly who will not only them
selves shrink from corageonsly facing the
Issue, but absolutely refuse to allow the
people to face It for themselves, then The
Mesaencer Is prepared to cease its admoni
tions to the young men of the rising genera
tion not to leave Vermont and to urge
them in all earnestness to fleo to a state
where the people are permitted to express
their will at tbo polls.
Let ns settle tills question and settle 11
emphatically. Let us find out whether the
majority of tbe people of Vermont are In
favor of prohibition or whether they are
not, and, when wo have ascertained the
vs 111 of tbe people, let ns make the law they
want and enforce it.
