Moiiii.k, Al Oct 2. A terrible ((ale
struck tlila: auction of the country, coming
from tlie soutlieaHt, tiefore daylight tliia
morning, and (tils ftrn(xin the wind
wan "Uli blowing over fifty miles an
hour. M'ator was blown In from the
gulf until the river reached Royal treet,
four blukH from it and at an elevation
of about fifUien feet from the main river
height. There is no way of eetimating
the money damage tonight. All the
wholesale and a lance portion of the
retail district of the city is four feet
under water, and thousands of dollars
worth of goods have been damaged.
Several tugboata and other small crafts
were driven ashore and it is reported
three dredgers, which were working on
the channel, have been lost. It i re
ported that fitly miles of the Louisville
& Nashville road along the coast is
underwater, and that the Biloxi bridge
has been swept away. Nothing lias
been heard from the gardners in the
marches east of the city, and the worst
is feared. Telegraph communication is
cut off in almot every direction, and
from the present outlook everything
will be gone belore late at night in the
way of wires. In the city many houses
were unroofed. One cotton warehouse
waa destroyed, and much minor damage
has been dune.' Smokestacks of all
the manufactories have been blown down
and street-car traffic is susiended be
cause of the damage to the electric wires.
The busiest thoroughfares of the city are
being navigated in boats, and as this
dispatch is sent the people are wading
up their armpits trying to save their
goods. It is corceded to be the worst
storm ever known here. The southern
part of the city presents a scene of
wreckage as if it had been bombarded.
The towers on the courthouse and Christ
church are tottering. Two men are
known to have been drowned so far.
TIIK STORM AT ITS UKlGHT.
The storm reached its beiulit about
3 P. II., when the wind reached a
velocity of seventy-five miles an hour.
Rain has been falling in torrenta the
entire day, and tonight the city ia in
darkness, and not an electric light of
any kind is burning.

Washinoton, Sept. 30. Leading dem-
ociatic senators who have been trying
for the last forty-eight hours to arrange
terms for a compromise on the silver
question, encountered a very determined
obstacle today, when they approached
republican anti-silver men; who thus far
have been acting with democratic repeal
forces. The republicans simply declare
there is no common ground upon which
they could act with the democrats longer
if unconditional repeal be abandoned.
When it came to negotiating for termo
with silver, they announced their inten
tion of flocking by themselves and de
clared they were ready to fight compro
mise to a finish.
This bellicose attitude of republicans
disheartened the democratic repealers
and compelled compromisers to halt,
temporarily at least. Senator Voorhees
ia in no way connected with the compro
mise movement. He said today he had
no reason to despair of the passage of the
repeal bill in the ongonal form, thought
it quite redlculous to conclude in that a
body of eighty-five men, a majority of
fifteen, could not secure a vote upon any
given proposition He said he felt con
vinced the majority could hold out
as long as the minority.
Washington, Oct. 2. Some of the sil
ver advocates who been studying the re
peal bills, proiiosed in the eenate by
Voorhees and in the house by Wilson,
have reached the conclusion from a sil
ver standpoint, that the passage of either
of these bills, instead of proving an un
mixed evil, may be a real benfit. They
claim tlmt the enactment of either these
bills into a law will have the effect of re
storing the free coinage of silver. Iheir
reasoning is to the following effect:
Both the Voorhees and Wilson bills
repeal only bo much of the Sherman act
as directs the secretary of the treasury
to purchase from time to time silver bul
lion to an aggregate amount of $4,000,000
ounces of silver, or so much thereof as
may be offered each month ; but leaves
untouched the fifth section of the bher-
man act which repeals the purchasing
clause of the bland-Allison act in full ef
feet, except where it requires purchases
of from JL'OOO.OOO to $4,000,000 of silver
per moutti. luepanoi mis ci um
is unrepealed provides for the free coin
age of silver dollars in accordance with
the provisions of the act of January 27.
1792. This act establishes a government
mint and provides for the coinage of
both gold and silver in sums greater
than f 100 at the request of the depositor.
Washinoton, Oct. 3. W. M. Sprlnuer,
of Illinois, chairman of the house com-,
mittee on coinage, says:
"There will be no compromise on sil
ver repeal. If the senate does not pass
the repeal bill, there will be no repeal of
the federal election laws and no tariff
legislation, and none of the democratic
measures which it was hoped this con
gress would pans will be adopted. The
hill to real the r lierman law will be
kept before the senate, and will not be
withdrawn before being voted on under
any circumstances. There has never
been anything known such as absolutely
indefinite filibustering, and I don't be
lieve a precedent will be established
now. The opportunity must, I suppose,
lie given to those who have not spoken
to express their views, but when they
have done so a vote on unconditional
repeal cannnot long te delayed and the
bill will pass."
Coallotlsg AocoonU From Ble
Londo., Oct. 2 A private cablegram
announces that the rebel fleet at Rio
Janerio bombarded that city all day
yesterday, resulting in further damage
to the city and a great loss of life. De
tails as to the amount of damage and
the number killed ashore and afloat are
not given ; but it is presumed from the
fact that firing was kept up all day the
loss roust have been considerable on both
sides. The cablegram adds that famine
prices for provisions prevail in Rio.
On the other band, the Brazilian min
ister here furnishes the following dis
patch, under date of jester lav, giving
the government's side :
"The insurgent squadron is still in the
bay, though some weaker by daily deser
tions. Some of the vessels have been
damaged by the shore arti llery. The
forts vigorously answered yesterday's
bombarding. Two steamers wbich es
caped have been repulsed at Santos. At
Santa Catharina they failed to land.
The troops are united, loyal to the gov
ernment, and public opinion is opposed
to the insurgents."

Washington, Oct. 4. The foreign
affairs committee have decided to report
favorably the MeCreary substitute for
the Everett bill. As agreed on, it ex
tends the Chinese registration period
of six months from the passage of the
act. It strikes out the word "white"
from the Geary act so as to permit the
testimony of anybody except Chinamen
to be adduced to prove "Chinamen are
entitled to register." It defines a
Chinese laborer. Geaiy offered his
amendment requiring photographing in
connection with the identification clause,
but only secured three votes in its sup
jiort. The majority deemed the regnla"
tions of the treasury department suffici
ent, Geary cast the only adverse vote.
He declares the bill's teeth are drawn,
that it is a makeshift in keeping with
the course of the administration, and
thut he will fight it tooth and nail.
Tinkering With the Tariff.
Washington, Oct. 3. The democratic
members of the ways and means com
mittee are making progress with the
tariff bill. The ground work is under
stood to be free raw material, with com
pensatory reductions on other materials.
There is a growing impression that the
consequent deficit in the receipts will be
met by increased intornal revenue taxes
on whisky and tobacco. Carlisle is un
derstood to favor au increased tax on
whisky to $1.20, calculating this will in
crease the revenue $30,000,000.

Steps Being Taken to Provide
More Eggs and Fish.
FOR A FISH VI AY AT THE FALLS.
In Company With the State Board,
Fish Commlssloaer McDonald
Examines the Falls.
The official investigation of the Clack
amas hatchery, the Cross mill dam ia
the Clackamas river and the Willamette
falls, which has been carried on by the
United States Fisb Commissioner Mar
shall McDonald during the past few
days, terminated last evening, and the)
state officials find themselves with some
very valuable advice, which, if carried
wut, bids fair to lend a new lease of life
to the salmon industry on the Columbia;
river. Mr. McDonald visited the hatch
ery on Sunday morning. He found that
Superintendent Hubbard has only been
able to secure some 300.000 eggs, instead
of 8,000,000, which be ought to have on
hand at this time of year and which be
could handle with ease. Then the com
missioner started down stream to deter
mine the cause of such a scarcity of fish.
The Cross mill dam, wjiich is situated
about a mile from the mouth of the
stream, be examined carefully in com
pany with Senator Cross, whom be hap
pened to meet on the ground and who
introduced himself to Mr. McDonald aa
the "notorious Cross.,' Mr. McDonald
last evening expressed the opinion that
the only adequate fishway for that dam
would be "an opening four feet in width
extending from the top of the dm to the
bottom of the river." If that remedy
does not prove efficient he proposes that
either the dam or hatchery must be re
moved from the river, and in event of
sucb an alternative he has promised to
use bis influence in removing the former.
At the mouth of the Clackamas, Mr.
McDonald found that it was the custom
of the fishermen to stretch their gill-nets
completely across the mouth of the river,
making it almost impossible for salmon
to enter the stream at all. As an im
mediate remedy for this evil, he recom
mends that the racks now in use at the
hatchery be placed in the stream below
the dam. This will practically put a
stop to all fishing In the' Clackamas, as '
the law provides that no fishermen shall
use gill-nets, seines, traps or wheels
within one mile of the rack, under pen
alty of a heavy fine. The commissioner
further recommends passage of a law
forbidding fishing within 600 feet of the
mouth of any stream ascended by sal
mon on their way to the spawning
grounds. Senator Cross readily fell in
with the idea of placing the racks below
his dam, and promised to render material
assistance by deeding to the United
States government a sufficient amount of
land upon wbich to work the racks.
PROPOSED riSHWAT AT OREGON CITT.
Yesterday morning Commissioner Mc
Donald, accompanied by Governor Pen
nover, State Treasurer Phil Metshan
and FiBh and Game Protector McGuire
paid a visit to Oregon City and spent
three hours in examining the falls, with
a view to selecting a site for the pro
posed fisbway. In Bpeakingof his inves
tigations, he said last evening that while
he thought a fishway over the falls was
practicable, and could be constructed so
as to fall within the available appropria
tion of $10,000, it would be impossible
for hiu to make any definite 'statement
at the present time. He proposes to
have a government survey made of the
falls, with reference to ascertaining the
topography of the ground, the volume of
water at high and low stages and the
corresponding rapidity of the current.
This will take time, so that it is improb
able that any work will be done upon the
fishway until next summer at low water.
Arranging For th Mid-winter Fair.
San Francisco, Oct. 4. The great
mid-winter fair will be a success.
People of the United States have now
been educated to the point of knowing
that the Midwinter Fair is not to belike
the state or county fairs, with which
every one is familiar but a great interna
tional exposition 7 The foreign countries
have all Bhown great interest in it and
exhibits are assured from twenty-four
different countries. From every quarter
comes assurance of hearty co-operation,
and opposition from no source, other
than the unpatriotic Californians to
whom allusion has been made.
Applications for Bpaca on the part of
those who wish to obtain concessions or
to make exhibits are coming in very
rapidly. The foreign commissioners
receive many letters every day from
tbeir countrymen abroad, asking par
ticulars about the exposition or making
applications for space, in which to show
the product of their handicraft.
