Meagre Uctalli.
HOUSTON , Tex. , Sept. 10 The
West Indian storm which reached the
gulf coast yesterday morning has
wrought awful havoc in Texas. Re
ports are conflicting , but it is known
that an appaling disaster has befallen
the city of Galveston , where it is re
ported 1,000 or more lives have been
blotted out and a tremendous property
damage Incurred. Meager reports
from Sablne Pass and Port Arthur
also indicate a heavy loss of life , but
these reports cannot be conflrme-
this hour.
The first news to reach this city
from the stricken city of Galveston
was received tonight. James C. Tim-
mins , who resides in Houston and
who is the general superintendent of
the National Compress company , ar
rived in the city at 8 o'clock tonight
from Galveston. He was one 01 the
first to reach here with tidings of the
great disaster which has oeiallen the
city , and the magnitude of that disas
ter remains to be told because 01 his
endeavors to reach home. After re
maining through the hurricane on Sat
urday he departed from Galveston on
a schooner and came across the bay
to Morgan's Point , where he caught
a train for Houston.
The hurricane , Mr. Timmins said ,
was the worst ever known. The esti
mates made by citizens of Galveston
was that 4,000 houses , most of them
residences , have betJK destroyed and
that at least l , 3w people have been
drowned , killed or are missing. Some
business houses were also destroyed ,
but most of them stood , though badly
The city , Mr. Timmins avers , is a
complete wreck , so far as he could see
from the water front and from the
Tremont hotel. Water was blown over
the island by the hurricane , the wind
blowing at the rate of eighty miles an
hour straight from the gulf and forc
ing the sea water before it in big
waves. The gale was a steady one ,
the heart of it striking the city about
5 o'clock yesterday afternoon and con
tinuing without intermission until
midnight Saturday night , when it
abated somewhat , although it contin
ued to blow all night.
Of his own knowledge Mr. Timmins
knew of only one house succumbing
With fatal results , though he heard
of many residences being carried away
with inmates. The house that he saw
destroyed was Ritter's saloon and res
taurant , at 2109 Strand street , a prin
cipal business street of the city. This
three story building was blown down
and nine men prominent citizens
were killed.
Among the dead are : Charles Kel-
ners , a cotton buyer for an English
firm ; Stanley C. Spencer , general
manager of the Elder-Wemster steam
ship line ; Richard Lord , manager for
McFadden's cotton company , whose
body is still in the ruins.
Secretary Bailey of the wharf com
pany and several waiters and custo
mers saved themselves by jumping
from the upper story just before the
crash came.
It was reported that the orphan asy
lum and both the hospitals were de
stroyed and if this proves true the
loss of life will be great , as these in
stitutions were generally crowded and
as they were substantial buildings the
chances are that many had taken re
fuge in them.
The water extended across the isl
and. , Mr. Timmins said it was three
feet deep in the rotunda of the Tre
mont hotel and was six feet deep in
Market street.

The revenue authorities of Manila ,
collect under the Spanish laws a tax
