coping. The Gorman aitillery hall is some
what injmed. The wateiwoiks biitldlngand
rcseivolr aio injmed. The Injury to St.
Phillips' chinch Is almostundescrlbable. Sev-
eial arches of the splro above the clock tower
arc torn down and tlnown out.
On Sullivan's Island the shock was severe ,
butcompai.xtively little Injmy was done. Xo
lives weie lost. Many of the summei visit
ors came to the citj this morning.
Tlio last eaitluiuake shock was cxuerlenccd
heie at 11:50 : hiht night , since which time
there have been no vibrations. Tlio people
nro just beginning to pick up courage to come
out. Efforts ate being made to clear paths
through the stieets for the passage ol ve
hicles ana pedestiians , and the city onto
more begins to show some signs of lite.
1'or two long dajs and nights of 1-orror ,
women and children have been camplngout
in paiks and smiaies. The earthquake swept
ovet the city like a besom of destruction. It
Is Impossible to give any correct estimate of
the loss of life and pioperty. 1'or two days
and nights tlio people have done nothing but
huddle In the Kqiiaie. Small detached relief
parties aie going out to dig out the dead
11om the debris or succor the wounded. The
llrst systematic effort to get at the facts Is
now beini } made. The list of dead recog-
nl/ed and reported this morning
' foots up to sixteen and the search has only
commenced. The list of wounded will do
Into the hundreds. About sevoi-clzhts of the
houses ot public buildings aio either clam-
nged or wrecked. The waves from 0:5.Tues : '
day night have been coming every live or six
hours. There has been none now for tvvclvo
hours and htiong hopes aio enleitiilned that
the honor Is about over.
A special to the News and Courier from
points in .South Carolina , ranging from the
c\tiemo northwest to the sea coast , repoits
hcvciat shocks of caitluiuako , with moioor
less dnmago to proprrty. though without
loss of life so far as Is known. In Gunge-
burg the people became so nlauned that
many moved to Columbia.
As the details of tlio calamity In tills cltv
are gathered , Its effects becomn more and
inoroalaimlng. It is feared also , that much
distress will pievall , as by far tun laigcr part
of those whoso pionoity has been wiecked or
seriously damaged belong to thopooior
classes. 'Ihe people are as cheer
ful as possible under the terrible
clienmstaniTH , and are living to lestoro
oidei out of chaos. The nggicgato loss is ex
pected to reach tlueo millions. The vvlmues ,
w alehouses and business facilities of the cltv
generally aio unallVcted by the catastrophe ,
and Chirlcston Is ready as over foi the tuns-
action of business.
' 1 ho ofllclal total of deaths Is thlity-tvvo ,
and the wounded will probably number 100.
Business Is still suspended , the whole atten
tion of the people being given to providing
lor the homottss.
Brlcklajerfi have advanced their rates to

piobably meet to moiiowtopiovldemeasures
lor relieving the poor. KxpiVKSlons ot grati
tude are henrd on all sides for the assistance
oflered to ChaileMon of which the sulterlng
people will L-ladly avail themselves. Confi
dence Is gradually returning , but much ap-
pichonslon Ishtlll felt.
The people are gradually takliu account of
the details of the injury worked by the eaith-
tuaUo , and the list or damage to propcity Is
startling. A limited section In the south of
the city Is n sample ot the whole. Standing
at the postotllco and looking west , an almost
Impassable roadway of debils meets the eve.
The building ot the chamber of commerce Is
badly damaged , a poitlon of the south
and east walls having been thrown down
by the v lolciiro of the shock , and the build
ings of Walker , Kvans it BOL'SVV ell luv e also
milfeied. while heavy granite slabs which
foi iiied the parapet of the News and Courier
building lie upon the sidewalk , leaving the
Hate roof and a portion ot ! the nttlc floor ex
posed. Most of the building * , on the street
nro more or less damaged , but the violence of
the eattluiuako Is most perceptible at the his-
tone Intersection of Broad and Meeting
Etloots , The police station Is almost a com

boon torn down and that of the north wall

Tlio fireproof building seems to stand as a
reck. The gables of the north and south
yoicut-3 , however , uuuleol solid browu stone ,
have been thrown to the pavement below.

There have necessarily been many changes
in the piogramme , and some llttlo confusion

good-naturedly. The numerous interests to
be looked after in a vast camp entails a largo

Vou may hare noticed that no lard from this

that we are laigo holders of poik and meals ,
which will bo wanted by consumers. Wo
treat our customeis well , and sometimes try
to make it especially agreeable foi them to
do business with us by helping them to make
a little money. We are Honest believers In

more Inrccly of Januaiy pork than any other

The object of this lettei is to call your at

aio firm belleveis in hlchur pi ices for hog
products and wo base it on the healthy out
look and condition ot tiado generally. In
the south a good common crop Is assured ,
which means a liheial demand for provis
ions of all kinds fiom that section. The corn
ciop Is hnally conceded to bo largely short ,
not nverGj per cent of a full average , which
condition alvvajs biings higher prices for
hogs , and consequently for their various pro
ducts. The expoits of provisions during the
past year are lanrely In excess of those of fho
preceding jcar , and the slocks of hog pro
ducts throughout the country atuveiy light ,
especially at Intoiior packing points. Lake
fieights are Hun and advancing , because ves
sels are busy tiansporting lion and othei

give employment to many thousand men
