Destruction Beyond Calculation
Galveston, Texas, Aug. 18.--Storm-
swept and battered, with a loss of 14
lives, Galveston, fortified by its en-
ormous seawall, Wednesday emerged
victorious from one of the most se-
vere storaffc known in the history of
the Gulf of Mexico. However about
rive hundred houses have been crushed
and the island is covered with debris.
Four of the dead arc United States
soldiers and ten. civilians.
The fourteen lost thei£ lives in an
attempt to reach the Theraont hotel
during the height of the storm. Sev-
eral thousand persons were quartered
in that hotel.
One thousand feet of the sea wall has
been washed awuy, one !b reach of
twenty-flve feet being directly in
front of the Galvez hotel. It was
through this break that most of the
resident section of the city was flood-
ed.
Three fires raged 'Monday night and
the'fire loss has been great.
Three bath house and 400 resi-
dences on the bay front were crushed
and the wreckage is floating in the
bay. The water made a clean sweep
albng the boulevard.
The storm reached its height at 3
o'clock Tuesday morning when its ve-
locity was ninety-two miles.
The greatest need here Wednesday
is water.
Martial law has been ordered. The
mayor Wednesday issued a state-
ment that outside aid will not be
needed.
Direct word from the storm swept
communities of the southeast Texas
•coast was briuging'details of the trop-
exceed $30,000,000.00 with Galveston
contributing half that amount.
According to information available
Wednesday night the deaths were re-
corded as follows:
Virginia Point, 14; Texas City, 32;
Galveston, 14; Morgans Pointy 7; Syl-
van Beach, 3; Houston 3; Hitchcock,
7; LaPorte, 7; Port Arthur, 4; Lynch-
burg, 3; Seabrook, 3; Dickinson, 1.
Property loss estimates were vague
except in a few instances. Houston.
Texas City and Port Arthur advices
gave fairly definite figures for those
places but most of the towns reported
in such phrases as "considerable,"
"very heavy," and "not yet estimat-
ed."
Some of the estimates were as fol-
lows: Galveston, $15,000,000, or more;
Houston, $2,000,000; Texas City, $400,-
000; Port Arthur, $200,000; Seabrook,
$100,000; Sabine, $100,000; Sabine Pass
$100,000; Kemah, $50^00.
In addition there was an enormous
loss to cotton growers in the storm
belt, some estimate that 25 per cent
of the crop of central Texas was des-
troyed and placing the loss at mil-
lions of dollars. The oil fields also

Ixmdon, Aug. 18.—Kovno, one of the
crucial ipoints in the Russian defen-

Germans last night, and the road to
the Vilna, Warsaw and Petrograd rail-
way is now open to the troops of Em-
peror William.

Woodward, Ok., Aug 16.—Ed. I. Dur-

shot about 11 o'clock this morning iby
Henry Bliss Richardson, of unsound armies, retiring to the Brest-Li-
t ideations they were unable to subdue.
With the Fortress of Kovno the Ger-
mans have taken over 400 guns, and
according to their account, an enor-

This, however, is not the most seri-
ous part of the matter to the Russians.
Besides opening the way to Vilna,
which is an open town, from which
most of the inhabitants have departed
and from which everything that might
be of use to the invaders has been
removed, the fall of the fortress takes
away the last protection, with the ex-

SEMIANNUAL SCHOOL APPOR-
TIONMENT MADE.
Amounts to $666*600, or 90 Cuts Per
Capita.
Oklahoma City, Aug. 14.—Semi-an-
nual a-pportionlment of the common
school fupdei has been made iby the
State School land commissioners. The
sum this period is >565,000, being 90>c
per capita for the scholastic populat-
ion. The last preceding apportion-
ment was $1.20 per capita. The sum-
mer apportionment is generally less
than the winter distribution, for the
reason that rents are paid in the fall
in most instances.
It is the opinion of Secretary George
A. Smith of the School Land Commis-
sion that the apportionment for next
winter will be the largest ever made
In this State. This is due to the sale
Hi is fall and summer of the school
lands in a numlber of counties and the
necessity for collection of all arreas
of rent as a iprerequisite of the sale
to the lessee or out of the proceeds
of improvements, if sold to other than
the lessee. With the land all sold off,
as will be the case in a few months,
the collection of interest will probably
result in increased apfportionment to
the common school fund over what
' I las been the rule under the lease
Isystem, owing to the greater values
for 6al purposes that have been fixed
by the appraisers than have prevailed
for the last six years for lease pur-
pose s.
It is the 'belief of iMr. Smith that
when lands shall all have been sold
the annual distribution to the common
school fund as proceeds of the invest-
ments will average $2,000,000.

the fact that Frank was brought to

from the state prison farm. The body
hanging from an oak tree, wa found

HENRY STAR UOKiS TO PRISON.
•McAlester, Ok., Aug. 16.—Henry
Starr, the Cherdkee Indian outlaw,
who has twice .before ibeen sentenced
to iprison only to be pardoned on par-
oled, this morning began a 2o-year
term in the Oklahoma penitentiary,
following his plea of guilty to roibbing
I wo national banks at &troud last
March.
With Louis Estes, confessed member
of the same gang, he was brought here
from Chandler and his name changed
for "'No. 6120." Lorette Starr, the iban-
dit's wife, came with Ihim, announcing
tfhat she will find employment in Mc
Allester In order to ibe near her hus-
iband. It was for tlbls woman, accord-
ing to reports, that Starr 'broke his
parole from Colorado penitentiary and
fled to Oklahoma.
The Russian commander continues
an orderly retreat, as is evidenced by
the fact that outside of the guns taken
with the 'Fortress of Kovno or cap-
tured in the forts of iNovogeorgievsk,
two more of which ihave fallen, the
Germans make no claims to the cap-
ture of artillery. It would appear also
that few prisoners have been taken,
which doubtless means that a con-
siderable part of the Austro-Germans
in their most recent advance have not
met with serious fighting.
With Kovno in German hands and
Any progress made by the British
at Suvla Bay would, according to the
military experts, be important, as it
would threaten the Turks who are
facing the Australians down the coast
and, like the other operations against
Turkey, have an influence on the Bal-
kan states, which seemingly are aibout
to decide which set of belligerents
they will Join. Serbia will probably
make here reply this week to the sug-
gestion of the entente ministers that
she cede Macedonia to Bulgaria. Opin-
ion is divded in Serbia as to what the
reply should be, 'but it is expected that
it will be favorable.
Serbia, it is asserted, would like to
await the outcome of the Greek crisis
-before giving her decision. This, how-
ever, is likely to continue for some
days, and is likely to end before King
Constantine and the new premier, M.
Venizelos, who will guarantee con-
tinued neutrality of Greece.
