Th storm came without warning, from
a southwesterly direction. The length of
Its path in the village was less than half ',
a mue, out. owing to Its peculiar action,
the distress and damage resulting were ,
not as great as they, might have been.

crumbled by the power olr the wind. A :
earn DDionging tp Dr. Dargabel5 on -the

TEXAS' LATEST STORM.
Tovrn C Marble Falls Reported to
Be Washed Atvay.
BXKJSTON, Tex., Sept. 24.-A bulletin
xrom Austin says:
It is rumored here at a late hour to
night that the town of Marble Falls has
been washed away by the Colorado River"
and that there is a 50-fbot rise at Kings
land. Efforts to reach Marble Falls are
without avail. It is a small town of
800 people, 25 miles above Austin, on the
Colorado River, and Is the terminus of
a branch of the Austin & Northwestern
road. The dispatcher says that at 9
o'clock all offices on his line were closed,
and he has heard nothing of any de
luge. Kingsland Is a small town in
Llano County, also on the Austin &
Northwestern, and is near the junction
of the Llano and Colorado Rivers, both
of which are very high.
Trinity River Rising.
DALLAS, Tex., Sept 24. The Trinity
River is higher tonight than It has been
since 1890, when It broke all records. The
water tonight lacks only six feet of reach
ing the 1300 mark and Is still rising. Ow
ing to heavy rains last night and ves
terday on the Elm Fork the West Fork
ana tne Clear Fork, all of them empty
ing Into the Trinity above Dallas, the
prospect Is favorable for the stream go
ing past the 1890 mark some time to
night No lives have been lost in the
immediate vicinity of Dallas, but cotton
and livestock, notably sheep and hogs,
have suffered heavily. The County Com
missioners of Dallas County estimate the
loss of county bridges at 525,000, Inde
pendent of numerous small bridges, and
the streets damaged in the County of
Dallas, which will be nearly as much.
The item of damage to roads and bridges
alone in the dozen or more counties af
fected In Northern Texas wJU be about
A bulletin received here this morning
from Fowler, Boso.ue County, says:
"Brazos River out of banks; higher than
in 12 years and going higher. Big rise
will result tonight." Fowler is 50 miles
north of Waco.
Brotvuivood Xot Seriormly Damaged.
Houston, Tex., Bept. 24.-The town of
Brownwood has not been seriously dam
aged by the overflow of the Pecan Bayou,
nor have any lives been lost The water
flooded the town, and some damage re
sulted from this cause. Trains will
be running through tomorrow over
hoth the Santa Fe and the Rio
Grande. The rise in the Trinity has
not yet reached the lower river, and the
people in the towns have been warned
fcy the newspapers. There are few tele
graph stations along the course of the
Trinity, and It Is difficult to get relia
ble information of the damage done. The
rise in the Brazos has reached Hearae.
and people in the bottoms have been
warned that an overflow is possible, but
not probable. The greatest damage has
been to cotton open In the fields. Corre
spondents at all points In Northern Texas
report this loss as heavy.
The reports from West Texas are
meager as to damage done by the Nueees
River. The country Is sparsely settled,
and Jt will be some days before accurate
information is obtainable. The loss of life
reported from San Antonio is so far all
that has been heard of.

Destruction &t Somalia. .
TfEW OREEANS, Sept 24. A special
from Austin, Tex., says:
A telephone message received hero by
the Chief of Police from Llano says that
Sansaba, 40 miles north, of that place,
containing about 1000 people, was partly
swept away by the flood in the Sansaba
River, which Is still rising. All bridges
have heen carried off. No news can be
had from Sansaba tonight, the wires be
ing down. It Is feared there has been
great Joss of life In the bottoms, as the

ing. The Colorado River here at 10 P. M.
was rising rapidly, and people In the low
lands have prepared to move out, having
been warned by the police.
Six Persons Perished.
ST. LOUIS, Sept. 24 Dispatches from
Nueces River Valley, Texas, say in a lit
tle Mexican village, La Algle, on Gal
lardo Creek, a branch of the Nueces, not
a house Is left standing as a result
of the flood. A Mexican family of four
and two American campers, supposed to
have been deer hunters from Eagle Pass,
perished. All efforts to get word from
Brackettsvllle, which was wrecked by a
flood a year ago, failed, owing to the
washing away of the telegraph wires,
GALVKSTON'S DEATH LIST.
As It Stands It Represents
of 3850 Names.
GALVESTON, Sept. 24. The newest list
of deaths from the storm represents a
total of 3S59 names. The indications are
that not more than 2000 will be actually
accounted for. The News has made a
diligent effort to get as complete a. list
of the dead as possible. t is reasonable
to assume that 800 or 1000 people were lost
whose names are not obtainable, which
would make the total list on Galveston
Island about 5000. The News is of the
opinion that the death list on the island
Is slightly below rather than above 5000.
This statement Is made, notwithstanding
the fact that there are close observers
at Galveston who are still estimating the
death list on the Island as high as 7000.
- Nearly 10,000 men went to work today
clearing the .beach front of debris and
After -being closed a fortnight the sa
loons opeped by consent of the Mayor.
The railroads are "trying to replace their
tracks In the storm-swept district be
tween here and Houston, but find it diffi
cult to get men. General Manager Krutt
schnitt and Manager Van Vleeok, of the
Southern Pacific, were here today, and
made an inspection of the property of the
company. Thb work on the wharves has
been resumed with all the men ayailab-fj.
Governor Bayers " will arrive here to
morrow to confer with the central relief
committee in regard to ghlng out a state
ment of contributions received for the
relief of Galveston, also in regard to pro
viding for the support of necessary de
partments of the city government.
The storm swept away a great many
coffins which had been placed in vaults
In the city cemeteries. Among the miss
ing coffins is that which contained the
remalps of Charles Coghlan, the actor,
who died here November 27 last. His re
mains had been placed in a receiving
vault awaiting final -disposition upon gir

When this place was named,Mark IJan
nawas a director in the Pacific Coal
Company, whose mines are lere. Gov
ernor Koosevelt reminded' his hearers of
the times four and six years ago when
It was difficult for miners to get work
and asked them to compare those times
with the present, when all were' em
ployed and all obtaining good wages, and
asked If they wanted to change back
again to the hard times -from which they
had emerged with so much difficulty.
Laramie was reached at about 3:30
o'clock today, and here two speeches were
made to nermit all who wished to see
and hear Governor Booseyelt speak. The
day meeting aroused a good deal of in
terest Governor Roosevelt said in Part:
"I do not appeal tQ you primarily as
Republicans. I appeal to you as Ameri
cans. I appeal to you as. citizens with
whom the welfare of .the Nation is great
er than any other con&ldgr'atlbn; to stand
above 'anything (that is' merely -'partisan:
There are two 'interests in this campaign.
One Is the lnteresfof our-material 'well-
being,-"the interest of the material pros
perity of this country. The other Is the
even more important side, 'the I question
of .National greatness, a question of the
Nation doing 'Its duty as -a nation.
"Here' ih'thisr state and this city, whoso
name commemorated the old pioneer days
of struggle and of risk and hardship,
it surely Is unnecessary for me to oall
your attention as to how this Nation be
came the great 'Nation that it now Is,
and how It has moved forward, onward
and. upward. If throughout our history
we had had to deal with timid souls who
feared danger and who feared to risk,
who feared to go forward when the Na
tion went forward, you would not have
been here. We began to expand within
three years after the second Continental
Congress sat in Liberty Hall and declared
ourselves free and independent. In 1803
occurred the greatest bit of expansion In
our history, Vnder the administration of
Thomas Jefferson' "we acquired what wa?
then called the Louisiana" Purchase, which
extended from the Gulf of Mexlcp to thf
Rocky Mountains. Thomas JeffersCn "wa
the author of the Governmental' doctrine,
but did not try to push to so ridiculous
and fantastic a conclusion his theory aa
to, get the consent of the dwellers In that
region before the American people could
take It It was right emphatically" that
we should deal justly with those we found
in the land, but it would have been folly
and weakness for this Nation to have
halted in Its onward growth because 'pf
some scruples as to our right to introduce
the spirit of civilization In these waste
places of the earth. Afterwards, we ac
quired from Mexico what Is now Cali
fornia and New Mexico Wo alsu ac
quire Alftsjip., The acquisition of 1I this
territory was opposed by men who Used
the same arguments In that day that are
uspd by our opponents now."
Preparatlpns on quite an extensive scale
.Were made for the reception of Governor
Roosevelt and his narty at . this place
tonight The special train arrived at 0:45.
Excursion trains from various parts of
the state brought In quite a number of
visitors. Two evening meetings were ar
ranged for, one at Turner Hall and the
other at the opera-house. Both nlacei
were crowded. Expansion, militarism and
Imperialism were the points touched on
by the Governor' in his remarks tonight.
In reference to Mr. Bryan's remarks in
a recent speech about the menaoe to the
pepple of 100.00) troops walking about In
idleness, he saldj
''Lawtop no longer walks about In idle
ness; Llscum and Rellly no longer walk
about in idleness, Was it Idleness when
Chaffee, at the command of PresIdent'Mcr
KlnJey. took his troops forward, refusing
to wait longer for the other allied forces
Who said they could not advance until
they wore shamed Into advancing by his
forward movement? Was It idleness
when the bov Titus sprang on to the
walls surrounding an immoral despotism
With the' flag that was to bring' security
an4 liberty to the women and children
starving and waiting In that dreadful
barrier surrounding the legations? Was
It idleness? The gallant efforts of our
men in the Philippines and the death pf
so many of them, it seams to me, might
at least spare them the slight and sneer
of any pf our own people."

CAPE TOWN, Sept, 23.-J-. W. Sauer,
ex-Commissioner of Public Works, Intro
duced' an independent resolution In the
Cape Parliament today, declaring that the
spirit of independence In the "Transvaal
and the Orange River Colonies might he
kept down with bayonets for a time,
but it would rise again. The peace of
South Africa, -he further asserted, called
for the restoration of the independence
of the two republics. The .Premier, Sir
J. Gordon Sprlgg, replied vigorously,' ad
vising Mr. Sauer Jo address himself to
Messrs Kruger and Steyn. In the course
of the debate, the Premier, referring to
the attacks upon capitalists, said that Mr.
Kruger was the greatest capitalist in the
country and that fie was not only a cap
italist bnt a thiof, The opposition speak
ers condemned the Premier's references to
Mr. Kruger. '
Mr. Schrelner, ex-Premier, moved an
amendment to Mr. Sauer's resolution to
the effect that the two republics should
be supplied, under the protection of the
Queen, with a guarantee preserving their
.National existence. The House rejected
the Schrelner amendment, and by a vote
of 41 to 39 decided to go Into commit
tee of supply without discussing Mr.
Sauer's motion. '

NEW- YORK. 'Sept. 34. A 'dispatch to
the Trlbuna "from London says:
Lord Salisbury's .manifesto is remark
able for the manifestation of style and
argumentative force. It contrasts strong
ly with Mr. Chamberlain's Birmingham
speech, which is open to criticism for
faults of taste. Mr. Chamberlain aimed,
however, at drawing the fire of the Radl
oa3s and setting them talking about South
Africa, and In this way hoped to swell the
The air Is heavy n the political clubs
With the rumors of Cabinet changes. Mr.
Goschen's retirement from the Admiralty
Is now regarded as a foregone conclusion,
since his health la broken and he 13
weary of official responsibilities, and can
not pe Induoed to remain at the post.
Lord Salisbury, wpo considers old age a
poor excuse for retirement, Is reported
to be greatly annoyed by Mr. Goschen's
determination to' abandon .office, 'but will
be fprced to find a successor for the Ad
miralty. Lor4 Lansdowne's tenure of the War
Office will also be short, but he, will not
leaye the Cabinet, Lord, Salisbury's re
lations with Lord Jansdbwne are most
mumaiq anane is not convwcea mat any
change In the War Office Is' required.
Well-informed men.rWbd know what Is
going on behind the scenes"; assert that
"Lc(d' Salisbury -when forced to admit
that the logic of the situation requires
a' new head for the 'War Office since mil
itary "VeorganlaeUioh is heralded as the
first- work of the next Parliament, will
transfer Lord Lansdowne'to the Foreign
Office, This result has beert predicted
by leading members of the diplomatic
service who have reasoned from, the In
timacy of the two ' statesmen that Lord
Salisbury will be likely to choose Lord
Lansdowne as his successor In the For
eign Office. This transfer would leave
Mr. Balfour leader of the Commons where
th.a old Tories are not ready to take
orders from Mr. Chamberlain.
The succession to the War Office Is
generally conceded to Mr. Chamberlain
on the ground that he Is the only mlnl3-.
tor with sufficient force of character and
administrative ability for carrying out
thorough and far-reaching reforms in the
military system. The reformers, how
ever, are over-zealous when they assume
that the emergency required the services
of Mr. Chamber)aln at, the. War Office.
Lord , Roberts as Commander-in-Chief,
and Lord Kitchener, as, Adjutant-General
of the British Army, must be In a bad
way If the. concentration. of so much,vtal-
ent Is Indispensable.
One of the freshest rumors In the air
points to another field of activity for Mr.
Chamberlain. This s the report that
Sir Mjchael Hicks-Beach, as well as Mr.
Goschen, Is weary of office and bent upon
retiring from the Cabinet. If this rumor
be well-founded Mr. Chamberlain may
hecome Chancellor of the Exchequer and
leave Sir Alfred Mllner to work outrtho
settlement of South Africa. This solu
tion would delight military men. who
know that Mr. Chamberlain cannot be
controlled from AJdershot and possibly
it would tend to promote a "reconciliation
of the -whole race In South Africa, where
the Dutch are bitterly prejudiced against
him. If Mr. Chamberlain does not take
the War Office, George Wyndham may
succeed Lord Lansdowne. He has earned
promotion by his debating skill 'and Is
the 'most promising among the younser
men on the conservative side.
The retirement of Viscount Cross, the
Duke of Devonshire, and Lord James is
also strongly hinted at from many
sources of Information. Lord Salisbury
unless al signs fall, will be forced to re
construct his Cabinet after the elections.
His superannuated colleagues have not
learned" the secret of perennial youth,
nor has he himself found it in his chem
ical laboratory at Hatfield. He Is de
scribed by those who have recently seen
him, as more cummunicatlve than ever,
as harassed and wearied with public life,
apd as hard to part from his colleagues,
or do anything but brood In silence about
perplexities and Chinese complication.

, ANGLO-JAPANESE SIGNS.
A Constant Source of Amusement to
- - Century.
In the larger cities of Japan many
shopkeepers have applied to a sign-painter
who has" acquired that dangerous
thing, a little knowledge of English,
without drinking deep at the Pierian
spring, for a "shingle" that shall ex
press to the world In 'Western characters
the nature of their business. The assur
ance of tbse slgnpalntars Is not matched
by their familiarity with English spell
ing, construction, moods, and tenses; and
the result Is often amusing In the ex
treme. For Instance, one Is amazed to
see in Toklo a sign that boldly -announces
A Tailor "Cut to Order.

and the like. But it does seem as if a
wag with a keen sense of humor had been
at -work when we read, as we do In a
prominent street of Osaka:

Put the last syllable first, and you will
catch the thought,- A wag, too, must
