PENSACOLA. Fla . Sept. 29. Already
the list of dead from Thursday's storm
has grown to 26,. and it 1 known that
many more have been lost and others in
jured, while more than 3000 persons are
homeless. For two days rescuing parties
have been . working to bring conditions
to some degree of order, but their, efforts
have not shown to any extent and there
are many bodies yet underneath masses
of wreckage. .
For ten miles east and 'west of the
city are strewn the wrecks of homes and
vessels of all classes. Commencing at
Fort McBae, on a point overlooking the
gulf, and continuing to Escambia Bridge,
east of the city, there is nothing but
devastation, ruin and desolation.
Struggle or Soldiers for Life.
At Fort McRae five lives' were lost.
The 30 men had a terrible experience.
They sought the batteries, the very high
est point, . as the waves began to dash
over them, and lashed themselves to the
guns. There they clung for more than
13 hours. Only one lady and her little
child were at the post. She was the wife
of Sergeant' Prentice, and, although the
big. strong solcter fought to save the
lives of his young wife and baby, they
were almost wrenched from nis arms.
Three artillerymen were lost by being
washed from the batteries. The fort was
Across on Santa Rosa Island. ' also on
the Gulf,, is Fort Pickens, where more
than 1500 men were stationed. . There was
no loss of life, but great destruction of
property. The mortar batteries were
driven In and the guns were wrecked.
The barracks were demolished.
Five Gunboats, Many Tugs Lost.
Fort Barrancas was badly damaged.
The Navv-vard suffered nrihahiv tn th
extent of Jl.000,000. Many of the new
buildings have been damaged or de
stroyed completely, the floating dock
crushed against a stone one, the latter
damaged, and the gunboats Vixen, Isla
de Luzon, Gloucester, Machlas and
Wasp, as well as the naval tugs Wau
ban and Accomac and a number of
smaller tugs and launches, are complete
wrecks. Some of these vessels have been
driven in-shore for more than 200 yards.
The homes of the working-men at War
rington and Woolsey were wiped out and
three lives were lost.
Across the bay. at the United States
Life-Saving Station, directly on the Gulf
beach, there is not a board to mark the
spot where the station-house and wharves
once were. The men remained at their

CHICAGO. Sept. C9. (Special.) Rev.
Charles.Scadding. for ten years rector of
Emanuel Church, La Grange, today was
consecrated bishop of the Episcopalian
diocese of Oregon in the presence of 13
bishops, more than 200 clergymen repre
senting almost every important diocese
In the . United States, and hundreds of
members of the church in La Grange and
The elaborate services, held in the
handsome edifice where the new bishop
so long labored, began at 10:30 o'clock
and continued until 1:30. A special train
on the Burlington road brought to the
southwestern suburb nearly 300 visitors;
including the visiting bishops and clergy,
and.. despite the Inclement weather, every
seat (n the church was occupied.
Great Gathering of Bishops.
The venerable presiding bishop of the
church. Right Rev. Taniel Sylvester Tut
tle. bishop of Missouri, conducted the con
secration services, . In connection with
which was celebrated the festival of St.
Michael and All Angels and the admin
istration of the holy communion. The
other bishops participating in and at
tending the services were:
Henry. Cod man Potter. New York; Wil
liam Andrew Leonard, Ohio; Charles
Palmerston Anderson, Chicago; George
Franklin Seymour, Springfield; Cortlandt
Whitehead. Pitteburg; J. W. McCormick,
Western Michigan; M. Edward Fawcett,

W. M. Brown, Arkansas; S. E. Edaall,

Solemn Procession Enters.
The church was crowded half an hour
before the ceremonies began at 10:30
o'clock, when the deep eilenca suddenly
was broken by the first notes of the organ
in the processional hymn, "Ancient of
days, who sittest. throned in glory."
Instantly the distant voices of the choir
Joined the melody, and a few moments
later the impressive consecration proces
sion entered with elow and measured
tread and proceeded up the wide aisle
toward the sanctuary.
The vested choir, the bishops in their
flowing habits, the clergy robed in the
black and white vestments of the church
with flashes' of color in the purple, scarlet
and pink hoods representing various uni
versity degrees, hanging from the shoul
ders of many of the bishops and clergy,
formed an impressive and beautiful spec
tacle. " '
Vision of Jacob Recalled.
As the bishops entered the sanctuary
the choir began the hymn, "Where the
angel hosts adore thee." When it was
concluded and the dignitaries participat
ing In the consecration had taken their
places. Presiding Bishop Tuttle began
the celebration of the long and elaborate
service of the administration of the holy
communion. The epistle was read by
Bishop Leonard, of Ohio, and the gospel
by Bishop Potter, of New York.
Bishop Anderson, of Chicago, the
preacher, took for his text the vision of
Jacob.- He declared that high and lofty
visions could be seen today,- as in the
time of Jacob, but not with the same
"We don't realize." he said, "how close
most of us are to earth, how mean and
sordid wc are, attending only to what
the eye can see, the hand can span. We
are incapable of lifting our eyes where
God can be seen. Do as Jacob did. get
by yourself, forget the world, close your
earthly eyes and open the eyes of the
soul. Get into the atmosphere where
you can realize the presence of God.
and all will then seem natural, not un
natural." "There is a false sort of liberalism
abroad in the land, a kind of intellectual
imbecility. It is one thing to say that
the Savior, our Lord, Is both God and
man, and it is a different thing to say
that he Is some sort of a god and some
sort of a man. When you set forth to
confirm the idea of church and no church
you feel something which is neither com
prehensive nor positive, a kind of intel
Advice to New Bishop.
The bishop concluded his sermon with
a brief personal address to Bishop-elect
Scadding. who arose from the chair
where he sat- alone at the foot of the
sanctuary stairs, and listened to the ad
vice of his senior. He was advised to
rule his diocese or it would rule him. but
to rule it like a father, not like a marti
net or a tyrant. ,
After a hymn the bishops of Spring

circle within the sanctuary while the

SAN" FRANCISCO. Sept. 29. (Special.)
The Gubernatorial fight in California has
resolved itself Into. a three-cornered con
test between James N. Gillett, the Re
publican nominee; William H. Langdon.
of the Independence League, and Theo
dore Bell, nominated by the Democrats
and lrldorsed by the Union Labor party.
All three candidates have already taken
the stump, and in a few weeks every pol
itician in the state with a voice and an
opinion will be contributing to the cam
paign oratory. James D. Phelan and Gov
ernor Pardee are among the lights who
will participate actively in the contest.
Gillett is of middle age and has served
two terms In Congress as the representa
tive of the northern counties. He Is a
lawyer of great ability. In fact, his legal
powers were at once recognized at the
National capital, and he was given a place
on the Judiciary committee. It was as a
member of this committee that he offend
ed organized labor, for he took ground
with Speaker Cannon against the anti-injunction
Cannon, Llttlefield and Gillett are the
men whom It was President Gomper's de
Sire to defeat for office. Glltett's home
has been in Eureka, where he is looked
upon as the "first citizen." George
Knight, the well-known California orator.
Is also from Eureka, and an ardent friend
of Gillett. Knight has been active In be
half of the candidate and will speak fcr
him in the doubtful districts. Friends of
Gillett are wont to describe him as "rug
ged." He has a high, reputation for in
tegrity. . Nominated by Southern Pacific.
Gillett was nominated at the dictates of
the Southern Pacific Railroad. No ona
disputes the fact. The railroad had da.
elded that Pardee should not be renomi
nated. Pardee has always been independ
ent. His appointments were all strong
and were made without railroad Influence.
Pardee gave the state four years of good

power to prevent, not a breath of scan

final act, which decided his fate in tha
eyes of the railroad, was his refusal to in
terfere when the Railroad Commission
marked up the assessments on all tha
lines in the 6tate. Herrin, the Southern
Pacific political agent, cast his eyes over
the list of candidates, decided that Gil
lett was the strongest, and as a result
Gillett was nominated.

William H. Langdon has been somaa
