Galveston, Texas, Aug. 1!). Galves

( hurricane today, just two days more
than a year since last year's destructive
I But while the storm took a heavy
toll in lives and property a year ago.
yesterday's mlow only provided an in
teresting spectacle for thousands of
persons who crowded the beach until
tar into tne night something like a
movie on u gigantic scale.
The wind attained its highest velocity
of 42 miles an hour early in the after
noon. The average for the day was 34
miles. The property damage was negli
gible, being confined to a few small
structures on the beach.
The weather bureau explained tho
storm's arrival on the coast 12 hours
ahead of scliedulo as due to the fact
that reports of its passage through
Vucntau channel were incorrect as re
gards time, anil also because of the sud
den veer it made across the gnlf to the
lower Texas coast.
Aie only fear felt here was for ship
ping in the gulf. The (lulf Const Fruit
& steamship company's liner Fort Mor
gan was due at Galveston at daylight
yesterday with passengers and a'cnriro
of bananas from l'uerto Kico, but it had
not been reported early today. Several

and the object of the meeting Monday
evening is to discuss plana whereby all
who are interested in prohibition become
duly informed of the proposed amend

officer of the Anti-Snloon league, will
