STORM IN THE SOUTH
Fierce Hurricane Along the
Coast of Georgia.
HEAVY LOSS OF LIFE REPORTED
The Storm Was Especially Severe About
8aaanab, and Many Vessels
Nkw Oblbans, Sept. 29. A . Times
Democrat special from Atlanta says : .
A disastrous hurricane swept over
Brunswick and along the Georgia coast
this morning. Meager reports have
been received from the storm center,
saying the hurricane was most terrific
and that great "damage and probable
loss of life resulted. . All the wires along
the coast are down, and up to a late
boar communication has not been re
stored to Brunswick, Savannah or
Charleston. - The wires are down for a
distance of forty or fifty miles this side
of Brunswick and no information has
been received from that place, except
by a train, which left there while the
etorm . was raging. The train was de
layed in Brunswick two hours, the en
gine being unable to make headway
against the wind, which was blowing at
a high velocity.
Wires, telephone and telegraph, and
parts of buildings were blown down and
carried away. People were injured by
flying objects, and one lady was killed at
Everett, a station a few miles" from
Brunswick. The railroad track was ob
structed by trees and poles, and the
only train which came through from
Brunswick .was preceded by a -wrecking
train for a distance of twenty miles.
Mr. Herrin, of the Atlantic Telephone
Company, reached Atlanta tonight from
Brunswick, and states that the city of
Brunswick is ba-lly damaged, and that
three big vessels were sunk in Bruns
wick. The latter were blown away from

1'aaaer Immigration Laws May Bar Out
Washington, Sept. 29. The atten
tion of Commission Stump, of the emi
grant bureau', was today called to the
movement looking to the colonization in
this country of Armenian , refugees.
Commissioner - Stump said - Secretary
Carlisle and himself had been fully ad
vised of such a movement, ' and variona
appeals has been made from Lady Henry
Somerset, Francis Willard and English
ana American relief associations asking
the co-operation of the government in
furnishing these stricken people an
asylum in the United States; but, while
the sympathies of all good people must
be aroused in their behalf, of course the
government must .enforce the laws as
they exist. The matter was being in
vestigated, and if any lawful means
could be found, they would be exercised
in behalf of the refugees. The law on
the subject, however, strictly prohibits
the landing in this country, of all persons
, likely to become public charges, and also
"any person whose ticket or passage
money is paid for with the money of
others, or who is assisted by others to
Lady Henry Somerset, it is understood
inquired whether bonds would, be re
ceived that these Armenians would not
become public charges. A reply has
been sent that the department cannot
accept bonds, exceptunder special cir
cumstances, after thorough investigation
of each individual case. It seems pro
bable the law puts an ' insurmountable
obstacle in the way of relief in the man
ner proposed. . . .

other members of the jnnta held a con
ference as eoou as the offer was received.
Palma was asked what action bad been

official advices say that, on the 25th and
26th instant rebel groups attacked the
western trocha along the entire line,
firing upon almost every government
fort between Mariel and Majala. A Ha

Artemisii was fired upon by insurgents
at a point between Los Canas and AI

were wounded. General Beral started

' Suicide Near Albany. .
Albany, Or., Sept. 29. Mrs. Nathan
Bond, a widow 73 years old, living with
her son, Albert, Bond, committed sui
cide yesterday evening by taking poison.
She went to an oak grove 200 yards from
the bouse, taking .a rope to hang her
self if the poison failed to act.- She was
lying under a small leaning oak when
found. A phial, containing water and
some other liquid was on the ground by
her side, and grains of poisoned wheat,
UEed to kill squirrels, were scattered on
The neighbors were aroused by Mrs.
Albert Bond and her daughter, and
commenced a search early in the even
ing, but did not find the body until 1
o'clock this morning. It was lying as
described, one end of the' rope being
around the neck. She evidently in
tended to put the end over the leaning
tree, step on a backet ihatwaa near
the tree, with a board on it,, fasten the
rope, kick the bucket away, and so
finish the work, if the poison failed to
act. It was not necessary, as the poison
completed the work. Coroner Wright,
Of Harrisburg, held an inquest, and the
verdict of the coroner's jury was that
death resulted from poison taken with

SHOWS CLEARLY THAT FREE SILVER
WOULD MEAN RUIN TO INDUSTRY.
Threat to Put the United States on the
Silver Baals Would Cause Business Stag
nation Mr. Bryan's Scheme to Throw
the Country Into Fits So That He Can
Try His Sixteen to One Qusvck Medicine
Evil Effects of the Free Coinage Agita
tion Already Manifest. '
Hon.- Carl Sohurz, ex-secretary of the
interior, addressed an immense audience
in Central Musio hall, Chicago, on
Sept. 5. Speaking of a possible free sil
ver victory he said :
Consider what the immediate conse
quences would be if Mr. Bryan were
elected president, with a congress to
match. Mr. Bryan would of course be
anxious to have his free coinage law
enacted, but that could not be, even if
he called an extra session of congress,
until some time in April or May, five or
six months after the day of election.
But as soon as on the 4th of November
the result of the election was announced
everybody would know that the parity
of gold and silver would not be main
tained. It having been made' certain by. Mr.
Bryan's election that the parity of gold
and silver would not be maintained,
there would be a rush upon the treas
ury for the gold in it by persons hold
ing greenbacks entitled to redemption,
and the gold reserve would be exhaust
ed in a twinkling. Gold will instantly
disappear from circulation, to be board
ed or exported. Why will it disappear?
Because every sensible person when
making a payment will prefer to xnake
it in the 'less valuable dollar "and hold
the more valuable gold dollar back for
more ' profitable use. Gold will there
fore quickly rise to a premium, and we
shall be on the silver basis long before
a free coinage law can be enacted; Our
daily transactions in buying and sell
ing, in paying and receiving wages,
will no longer be carried on upon the
basis of the gold dollar worth 100 cents,
bat of the silver dollar worth 50 cents
or thereabout, for the government will
no longer hold up the silver dollar to
the value of the gold dollar..
- The quantity of gold vanishing from
circulation will amount to about $600, -000,000,
the disappearance of which
will, make a tremendous hole in the
volume of our currency. . But, says the
silver man, there will be free silver
coinage to fill the gap .promptly' with
coined silver or silver certificates. . Oh,
no, my fellow sufferers. The disappear
ance of gold will happen promptly after
the election of Mr. Bryan, and . there
will not possibly be any free coinage of
silver for at least six months, and it
will require a great many more months
to fill a gap of $600,000,000.
What will happen meanwhile? The
St. Louis Globe-Democrat reports Mr.
Bryan to have said some time ago: "I
think it meaning the victory of the
free coinage movement will cause a
panic. But the country is in a deplor
able condition, and it will take extreme
measures to restore it to a condition of
prosperity." Whereupon the St,: Louis
paper pointedly remarks, - "Evidently
Mr. Bryan has heard othe doctor who
always threw his patient, into fits before
administering any curative.' medicine. "
How, then, would Mr. Bryan's ?fit"
work? The sndden disappearance of our
gold from circulation would produce
the most, stringent contraction of the
currency on record. Business men who
owe money and at the same time have
money due them will be forced to col
lect that money by every means at their
disposal. . Nobody will be inolined to
iena out any money except upon extraor
dinary security. The banks will nat
urally consider it their 'duty to keep
themselves strong, and therefore to call
in loans and to - restrict their discounts
and advances to business men with the
utmost caution. Bnsiness establish
ments, manufactories, . mercantile
houses, unable to get the money for meet
ing their obligations, will by the hun
dreds succumb to their embarrassments
and tumble down like a row of bricks.
Others wjll cautiously restrict their op
erations to the narrowest possible limit,
and wage earners by the thousands will
lose their employment and be turned
into the street .. '
How can I foretell, these things with
so muoh assurance? - Because they have
already cast their shadows before. Do
yon remember tbe crisis of 1893, when
the silver basis, was in sight? And
now again the mere apprehension of
ja possibility of Mr. Bryan's election
and of tbe consequent slipping of Our
country, upon the silver basis has al
ready caused untold millions of our
securities to be . thrown . upon , the
market in Eurooe as well .as here.

escores of business orders are already
recalled, a large number of manufac
turing .establishments have already
stopped or restricted their operations,
enterprise is already discouraged and
nearly paralyzed, many works of publio
utility by industrial or railroad com
panies have already been ordered off,
thousands of workingmen are already
thrown out of employment, gold is al
ready being hoarded, capital is already
being sent out of the country to be in
vested in Europe for safety.
And why all this? Notc as the silver
men foolishly pretend, because the ex
isting gold standard has made money
scarce, for capital is lying idle in heaps,
scores upon scores of millions, fairly
yearning for safe employment. ' No.
Ask those concerned why all this hap
pens, and with one voice they will . tell
you it is because they apprehend serious
danger to every dollar ventured out
through the change of our standard of
value in prospect, throngh the debase
ment of our currency threatened by the
free silver coinage movement. And if
these ara the effects of a mere appre
hension of a possibility," what would be
the effect of the event itself?
It May Do as Much for You.
