Houston, Texas, Sept. 11. The West
Indian storm, which reached the gult
wast yesterday morning, has wrought
awftil havoc in Texas. Reports are
conflicting, but it is known that an ap
palling disaster has befallen the city oi
GalveBtou. where it is reported, a
thousand or more lives have been blot
ted out and a tremendous property
damage inifloted. Meager reports
from Sabine Pass and Port Arthur also
indicate a heavy loss of life, but the
reports cannot be confirmed at this
The first news to reach this city from
the stricken city of Galveston was re
ceived tonight. James C. Timmins. of
Houston, superintendent of the Na
tional Compress Company, arrived here
at 8 o'clock from Galveston. Alter
remaining through the hurricane on
Saturday he departed from Galveston
on a schooner aud came across the bay
to Morgan's point, where be caught a
train for Houston. The Hurricane,
Mr. Timmins said, was the worst ever
The estimates made by citizens' of
Galveston was that 4,000 houses, most
of them residences, have been de
stroyed, and that at least 1.000 people
have been drowned, killed or are miss
ing. Some business houses were also
destroyed, but most of them stood,
I thougli badly damaged.
Thn oitv. Mr. Timiiiina avers, is a
complete wreck, so far as he could see
from the water front and from the Tre
mont hotel. Water was blown over
the island bv the hurricane, the wind
blowing at the rate of 80 miles an
hour, straight from the gulf, and foro
ing the sea before it in big waves.
The gale was a steady one, the heart
of it striking the city about 5 o'clock
yesterday evening and continuing with
out intermission until midnight last
niiiht, when it abated somewhat, al
though it continued to blow all night.
In the bay the carcasses ol nearly uu
horses and mules were seen, tut no
human body was visible.
The scenes during the storm, Mr.
Timmins said, could not be described.
Women and children were crowded

Seattle, Sept. 10. The steamship
Berhta arrived from Yaldes last night.
She brought about $30,000 in gold

Kyak, where the company 1ms found
oil and coal.
Whether the earthquake disturb
ances which were felt on Lynn canal
and at the head of the Yukon river had
anv connection with similar disturb
ances at Lituya bay is a mere conject
ure, but according to information
brought out by the steamer Bertha, a
vast amount of damage was done at the
latter nlace. Five Indians are known
to have been killed.
The news was brought from Lituya
bay to Yakutat by Indians in canoes.
The disturbances' there occurred on
August 11, one day after the earth
quake shocks above referred-to. They
apparently proceeclea irom ine oisiikt.
in which Mount St. Eliaa and Mount
Fairweatlier are situated. On August
11 two heavy shocks were felt, accord
ing to the Indians. The second sho k
created great havoc, as well as destroy
ing five lives. The Indian informants
told persons at Yakutat that five of
the immense glaciers which head into
Lituay bay weree dislodged by tne
disturbance and were sent crashing
into the bay, partly tilling it with great
mountains of ice.
The five Indians are reported to have
been killed on a small island situated
out about a mile from the face ol one,
of the glaciers. They were in a cave
and were drowned by the reat rush of
water which swept over the islr.ud
when the ice rivers crashed down into
the bay. Chief George, one of the
best-known characters in the north,
was one of the drowned Indians. It is
g'aid that the cave cache in which they
were caught was bis personal prop-
No definite news concerning mo
strike on Doruix creek, at the head of
the Copper river, had been brought out
to Yaldes, outside of what was already
known when the steamer Bertha left.
The government trail, under the direc

proached within 70 miles of the strike,
or a distance of 170 miles from Yaldes,
and work was being pushed with all
speed, so as to connect the district by

Operations in Philippines.
Washington. Sept. 11. The war de
partment has made public a report ot
Major-General Otis, giving details ot
the operations of the United State
army in the Philippines from Septem
ber 1, 1809. to May 6, 1900. The re
Vort covers the operations of the arm
ies and commands of Generals Lawton,
MacArthur, Wheaton, Schwan, Jamea
M. and J. F. Bell, Hughes, Bates aud
Young, as well as different colonels,
who had separate or independent com
mands during that time. Nearly all
the facts contained in the report and
all important matters were published
during the campaign. Besides con
taining an aocouut ol tne movements
of the United States forces, there is
considerable spaoe devoted to the poli
cies of the insurgents shown to a great
extent in the publication of the cap
tured correspondence and documents
found in possession of persons in sym
pathy with the insurgents.
General Otis Bays he desiies to cor
rect an ('erroneous impression that the
war with the insurgents was initiated
by the United States." After explain
ing the conditions that existed at the
breaking out of hostilities, he says:
"War with the insurgents was forced
on us and was inevitable."
He asserts that this is shown in Fili
pino correspondence captured by the
Americans, which, he says, proves that
the war was planned ty Aguinaiao.
He says another erroneous impression
prevails that the Filipinos eudeavored
to stop hostilities after the first out
break, but were refused by the United
