BRUNSWICK'S GREAT LOSS.
Mr. Wilson Writes of the Big Storm
Which Visited That Place. j
The following was received from
Mr. E. A. Wilson by the Sun this
! Brunswick, Ga., Oct. 2, '98.
Salisbury Sun This city has j ust
passed through the worst storm
and tidal wave it has ever experi
enced. I suffered very little loss.
The Southern ! Rail way lost prob
ably ten thousand in wharf prop
erty and buildings and about 2,
500 bales of cotton. Very few
people who had anything to lose
but lost something. j
The wind reached a velocity of
70 miles an hour and the water
flooded the city. J
Many vessels broke lose from
their moorings and are high ai d
dry today, one being across a
track to their dock 4 miles from
the city. The waves were 10 ft.
high in the river here. j
One man was killed, and several
MA ren drowned. The loss to
city and shipping is estimated

FOR A Y. M. C A. BUILDING.
Williams and Lewis Address
R. railroad men's meeting, as an
nounced in the Sun . Monthly and
Tuesday, was held in the' court
house last night. Messrs. : H. O-
Ulillianis, one' of the secretaries of
thb International' Association, and
Wu M. Ixjwis, State secretary for
North and South Carolina, ad
dressed .the men. There was a
fair crowd present at the meeting.
Both speakers awakened much in
terest in the audience and were
listened to attentively. ;
The object of the meeting was
to place the matter of erecting a
Y M. C. A. building at Spencer
before the shop people and to en'
lit t the railroad men in the cause.
The Southern Railway ; Com
pany has already been asked to
donate $5,000 towards the associa
tion building and to set apart $100
por mohtli to hejp conduct it. The
rs ilroad men are asked to join the
association, each member to pay a
due of $3.00 yearly.
Already, we learn, about 200
names have been secured. Sever
al were added last night. It is be
li ived that when a sufficient num
bi r of names have been sccu red
and sent to the Southern, that the
company- will comply .with the re
q lest of the association and give
the mOney for the building. 5
We learned from Mr. Lewis
that the Southern Railway Com;
piny looks upon the establish
ment of railroad associations with
favor, and he spoke pretty con
fi lently that the Southern would
h ip the men erect a building and
