      Naah…I think it is just plain old stupidity at work.
      The Jesuit paper says:
      1897 Oct 7-16 710.00 Guiam, Samar
      The NYT says:
      “The typhoon which swept over the Philippine Islands on Oct 6…”
      Another article from the same period says:
      A GREAT HURRICANE.
      At Leyte, the damages caused by the late hurricane were estimated at 7,500,000 francs, and a thousand natives were drowned. Tackloban Island, near Samar, was also devastated.
      ~27 Oct 1897

      They are all one and the same typhoon.

    You must have made this one up as well…
    CYCLONE AT THE PHILLIPINES.
    The steamer Australian, which has arrived from the East, brings details of a destructive typhoon at the Phillipine Islands on October 12.

    This one shows a bit of originality…
    HURRICANE IN THE PHILIPPINES.
    THURSDAY ISLAND, November 26. Latest Eastern files received here give reports of a terrible hurricane which occurred in the early part of October in the Philippine Islands. Three vessels were wrecked, and there was also great loss of life. The town of Hernani, in the island of Sanar, is reported to have disappeared entirely, and a new island was thrown up off the coast.

    I want a ride in the time machine. There are some things I’d like to warn Reagan about. He could send Seal team 6 to Harvard.

    Religious zealots used to say that the Devil placed fossils in the rocks to confuse the faithful. What’s old is new again.
