125 DEAD AT MOBILE
NUMBER OF CASUALTIES IN GULF
STORM IS SLOWLY INCREASING.
Losses to Lumber Interests Alone
Will Aggregate $10,000,000 Reports
From Coast Towns Pascagoula
Beach Heaviest Sufferer. i
Mobile, Ala., Oct. 1. The number
of casualties in the great storm of last
Wednesday is slowly increasing as
messages aro received from places
which have heretofore been Inaccessi
ble. Tho total of the known dead is
seventy-nine. It Is estimated that
twenty-three lives havo been lost from
the oyster fleet around Cedar point.
It is known that some of the boats on
which these men wero have been
driven ashore and it is entirely pos
sible that some of the crews managed
to reach the shore. It does not seem
likely at present that the death roll1
will amount In this vicinity to moro
Mobile itself Is rapidly emerging'
from the confusion caused by the
storm. Large gangs of men arc clear
ing tho streets of debris, three of tho
street car lines have commenced to
run for the first time since Wednes
day, the confusion at the docks is
rapidly being repnlred and business
will be at normal as soon as the rail
roads are able to run trains.
The situation along the coast to
tho west oMhis city is now fairly well
known. At Scranton, Miss., ono
church and several buildings wero
blown down. At Eascagoula Beach
not a residence is left standing, the
river front at that point is completely j
torn up and tho lighthouse thoro has,
been destroyed. Shipping at this point
has been badly damaged. The keeper
of the Horn Island lighthouse, Just
.outside of Scranton, lost his life. Tho
entire end of tho iBland on which the
lighthouse was situated is said to havo
been carried away by the waves.
At BIloxl tho damage has been of a
minor character to buildings. Boats
which have from time Immemorial
found refuge from all tho storms that
blew by fleeing Into the back bay at
Biloxi were granted no such Immunity
on Wednesday, as the waves ran high,
and many of the boats that sought
refuge there were sunk and all of
them wero badly damaged. Tho
wrecking of a few houses comprised
tho damage at Gulfport and no lives
wero lost there. Five out of oight
vessels at Ship island at tho time of
the storm wero beached and two will
bo total wrecks. Several vessels are
ashore off Horn island and tho small
Islands marking the passage between
Dauphin island and tho mainland havo
been destroyed. Tho schooner Alico
Graham of Mobllo is known to have
been lost, with her crew of six men.
Tho known dead at Dauphin Island aro
Captain John Worten of tho schooner
Irene. Cantaln Robert Peters of tho
schooner Louisa B and Mitchell Plsell,
mate of tho same boat.
It is now believed that tho loss to
tho lumber Interests alono by tho
storm will nggrogato $10,000,000. It
Is almost Impossible for any person
who has not been through tho storm
swept district to comprehend tho ox
tent to which the country has been
swept of pine lumber. Tens of thou
sands of trees of tho finest quality
havo been blown down.
