IHEAVY STORM LOSS
Northern Coast Suffers Severely From
A MILLION 10LLARS OF DAMAGE
Tremendous Damage to Small Boats
and Summer Cottages on the Coast
—Work of the Wind.
New York, Special.—The great storm
which came speeding up from the
touth on Saturday night, has spent Its
force in this sone of the Atlantic coast
and the watera driven up on lowland
and beach are subsiding. A more care
ful eurvey of the storm-swept coast In
dicates that aggregate damage will ex
ceed the general estimates of Monday.
Hundreds of small craft were wrecked
or badly damaged, wharves and piers,
at every exposed point were battered
down, many seaside resorts were un
roofed, city cellars were filled and hun
dreds of town houses were damaged.
Estimates of the aggregate damage
runs slightly below and conaideiably
above »1,000,000. Down at Monmouth
Bench, where the big German skip
Flootsdek drove ashore, and where
there was a thrilling rescue of her
crew by Ufe-savere,, an angry sea was
•till beating up on the beach. Wreck
ers have been engaged but until tho
sea calms nothing can be dona to
ward saving the ship and ber cargo.
The big craft firmly embedded in the
land was still Intact and Captain
Zlnglcr, her master, who watched hrr
from tho life-saving station, was sure
that both vessels and cargo would b*
saved. Storm-bound shipping was re
leased early Tuesday, but sea coast rail
way and trolley service will limp until
waahouta are filled In. Linemen were
busy restoring prostrated telegraph
and telephone wires today, \bu; It
will be a couple of days before these
services are completely restored.
Reports of the damage done by the
storm of Saturday night and Sunday
continue to come In. Details from
points on the Jersey coast, the south
ern coast of Long Island and the upper
shore of Long Island sound, show that
the destruction was widespread and
the monetary loss much hoavler than
at first suppoaed. Long Branch reports
to-night show that hardly t building
there escaped some damage. As evi
dence of the forte bf the wind, a plank
*bout 20 feet long, 7 Inches wide and
two thick, was torn from the roof of
the pier pavlllion and blown across
wran avtmutt. u SHUCK mo usnux no
tel end on and was driven Into the aide
of the building to a depth of four or
five feet. The wreck of the tug, Haddcn,
at Long Branch. Is complete. The woi'k
of unrigging commenced Monday.
Tho railroads are gradually getting
their tracks In working order, but at
some places no trains have yet been
Besides the loss resulting -from stop
page of traffic It will take many thou
sands of dollars to repair the breaks.
Temporary repairs are being made as
fast as possible.
Tho wealthy New Yorkers who have
summer houses on the upper .shore ol
the sound visited them In wreck and
ruin. Tho shore Improvements are In
ruine, while- fine shade treea are laid
low and extensive lawns are piled high
with sand and wreckage. Reports still
come In from New Jersey, and the eur
rounding Inland waters. It will Uk«
days to figure out the loss.
Philadelphia, Special.—Advices re
ceived In this city Tuesday mornlnc by
the maritime exchange state that fiv«
men were drowned yesterday at Lon*
Branch during the height of the norlh
east storm which swept the Atlantic
coast Saturday night and Sunday. Th
men are suptnised to have been mem

Knoxville, Tenn.. Special.—Follow
ing the report that the court of in
quiry would cost Admiral Schley $20.-
000, the Knoxville Sentinel on Novem
ber 18th sent the admiral a dispatch,
-asking if he would,consent to public
subscriptions to pay the amount. Wed
nesday the Sentinel received a personal
letter from Adtfilral Schley, the pur
port of which was that he cannot ac
cept the offer. He says, the report as
to the cost Is a mistake, as the amount
Is not so great. He suggests that the
matter la "too delicate to discuss," and
.trusts that bis friends will "appreciate
and respect It."
