Pueblo, Colo., May 31.—A storm
which has been raging in this vicinity
for the past two days broke in all its
fury during the night causing the Ar
kansas and Fountain River, whose
junction is in this city to burst over
their levees and Hood the whole lower
portion of the town. The fire whistle
was blown to call out the police and
fire department also the volunteers to
assist In rescuing some three hundred
families who were hemmed in the
“grove” or bottoms.
The work proceeded as rapidly as
was possible. The men in their work
were greatly hampered by the rising
water. An alarm was sounded at 10
o’clock last night calling the rescuers
from the bottoms. The levees had
broken above the city and there was
great danger of the people being
drowned. High wagons and boats
were used in getting the unfortunates
to the high ground. When the second
alarm was sounded the work of saving
property was abandoned. At 11 o’clock
the city was in total darkness. The
water six feet deep coming down
Court street. This is the resident por
tion of the city.
The Journal building is under water
and the printers fled to save their lives.
It is almost certain that a number of
people have been drowned.
11:30 v. m.— The flood is increasing at
the rate of six feet an hour. Over one
hundred dwellings have been swept
away. The business portion of the
city is entirely cut off from communi
cation with the south and east side.
1:30 a. m. —No abatement. Rain has
commenced again, A police patrol
wagon with ten men standing
on the seat, stuck in the mud, only the
horses heads being visible above the
water, can be seen from the office
of the United T’ress. The position of
the wagon is oiTa eol-ner with the wa
ter running at a tremendous rate. The
position of the men is perilous.
Later —Telegraphic communication
cut off. The Journal building is going.
Vancouver, B. U, Visited by a Rise of Water
Unequalled in her Territory.
Vancouver, B. C., May. 31 —The
overflow of the Frazer River is causing
great destruction and loss of life. The
vallies have been submerged, houses of
ranchers have been swept away and
fields lay in waste. Many herds of cat
tle and flocks of sheep have been drown
ed, Whole villages on the banks of
the stream are flowing. So far, seven
lives are known to have been lost.
Langley, a little boy fell from the
Langley Hotel and was swept away by
the flood. The whole of the Langley
prairie is now under water and the is
land on which the Indian reservation
is situated is entirely under water.
The dead bodies of three men and a lit
tle girl were found on Ilatzic Prairie
tangled among floating trees. Many
other bodies are reported as having
been seen in the stream in other locali
ties, but so terrible was the current
that no attempt at rescue could be
made. At Morris, steamers are sailing
in water where a week ago were farms.
Farmers, fearing to remain longer, are
taking passage on steamers and bring
ing their families here.
The towns of Chillawack, Harrison
and Centerville, have been almost en
tirely inundated, and was with diffi
culty that the inhabitants have escaped
with their lives.
The damage done to the Canadian
Pacific Railroad tracks is very serious,
all along the line. At Ilatzic, the dik
ing has entirely given w’ay and six
hundred yards of road have been des
troyed. At Necomen, the whole town
is under water. Traffic over the rail
road is entirely stopped, no train hav
ing arrived from the east since May 23.
No mails have been received or sent.
At Ilatzic and Griffin six hundred men
are endeavoring to repair the tracks.
At places, it is proposed to throw haw
sers across the chasms and iu this way
transfer the mails to the opposite side.
Every farmer and rancher at Hatz ic
prairie is ruined. The latest report
says that the Matzqui Dike has caved
in and the country is all flooded. Re
ports from Mission City cannot be ob
tained for the wires are down. The

This was the opening day at the track
here and fully 25,000 persons took ad
vantage of the clear and a trifle cooler
weather to witness the races. The
track was in excellent condition and
everything about the grounds was in
perfect order. Among the interesting
events on the brilliant programme wefe

Juvenile stakes. In the former race,
Dr. Rice, the favorite started out well

Brighton Beach Race Track, May
HI. —Fully ten thousand persons took
advantage of the holiday and attended
the races here yesterday. The grand
stand was uncomfortably crowded, and
it was almost impossible to get into the
betting ring. The track was in excel
lent condition, and, as the card was
first class, good sport was indulged in.
The weather was perfect. This was
not one of Briglitons regular days. The
regular meeting does not begin until
July 4th. Despite the warning of the
jockey club, one, two, three books were
made, but this was due to a misunder
standing at last Monday's meeting of

such books will be allowed.
ATTACKING THE TRAINS.
Desperate Strikers Kdsort to Desperate
Acts in Ohio.
Columbus, 0., May 3b —A special
fro r Glouster states that striking mi
ners stopped a Toledo & Ohio Central
coal train loaded with West Virginia
coal yesterday and detained it. This
morning- another train was stopped
there. The railway company appealed
to Sheriff M. M. Riley to prevent this
interference, but owing to the grea
number of strikers, he decided to in
voke military aid. There has been no
conflict yet. Glouster is in the n "th
em part of Athens county, at the _ unc
tion of the Kanawha and Michigan and
the Teledo an 1 Ohio Central railroads.
It is in the heart of the Hocking valley
mining region, aud the thousands of
striking miners there have become
desperate at seeing train load after
train load of West Virginia coal go
through to the northwest market.
More Trains Attacked.
Massillon, 0., May 31. —A party of
250 miners attacked three W heeling
and Lake Erie trains laden with West
Virginia coal as they passed through
Herrodsville yesterday. The windows
in the engine and cabooses were brok

The Governor of Colorado Confering With
strikers, to Whom he is Partial.
Denver, May 3b —Governor Waite last
night left Denver secretly on the Rio
Grande Road and arrived at Victor this
morning where he is having a confer
ence with the strikers. The nature of
it has not yet developed. The governor
says he goes to Cripple Creek as a knight
of labor, to talk with his fellow knights
No more war therefore, has been made.
The strikers have warned the people
they dislike to leave the town of Crip
ple Creek. Deputy Sheriffs are still
encamped at Divide and are being re
inforced. It is not thought that Waites
presence will stay a battle there, which
seems inevitable, and the general be
lief is that trouble will occur as soon as
the governor leaves. The people of
Colorado Springs and Denver are high
ly incensed at the governor and his
partiality to the strikers and the press
is unanimous in condemnation of his
acts, even the populist papers pointing
out the errors. The Rocky Moun
tain News denounces Waite.

having been finished at the opening

State Immigration Congress begins its
practical work this morning.
Yesterday after the meeting was call
ed to order by President Bryan, of Ten

part of the city. Mayor
Alexander's speech was full of inter
esting historical facts about Augusta,
the oldest inland city in the south At
lantic States, and the second establish
ed by Oglethorpe. This city before the
day of railroads being the furtherest
inland city with liver navaga ion to
the sea south of Virginia, was the point
of comm unication with the outer world
of all that territory embraced in North

North Carolina, North Georgia and

“This city is mentioned in contemporaneous
history in 1710, live years after the settlement
was planted, as already in a state of great pros*

an extensive traffic throughout the vast and

“It was here that Eli Whitney eondticted his
experimental works and in i790 developed the
cotton gin, one of the most tamo us industrial
inventions of the world, which immediately rev
olutionised the agriculture of this section from
tobacco and indigo to cotton as its staple crop.
In 1791, the whole cotton crop of the south was
38 bales. In li 00 seven years after Whitneys
gin appeared, Georgia alone exported over 7,003

Following Mayor Alexander, Honor
able Joseph R. Lamar, president of the
Young Men’s Business league of Au

for this city, welcomed the congress,
and followed with more valuable, facts
concerning- the Augusta of today. Tak
ing simply the official census figures
for ISSO he showed that Augusta had

Gov. Northen’s Welcome to Georgia.
Governor Northen wekvjmUd the con
gress on the part of Georgia and gave
a glowing picture of her prog-ress and
thrift. He declared the readiness of
Georgia to welcome industrious imi
grants who came to cast their lot here.
Governor Northen was greeted with
most enthusiastic applause. The
southern people he said were grossly
misunderstood and abused and from
some cause, (he trusted it was from ig
norance) misrepresented in their so
cial and political conditions. lie con
This convention should come to the defense
of our civilization and let the world know that
no people among the nations has a prouder re
cord for law and order or a higher or a better
civilization tnan the people we have the honor
to represent. He recc m mended still more lib
eral appropriations for schools and better high
ways. Fnally, there is a spirit abroad in some
sections with which personally I have no sym
pathy. Undue antagonism to corporations is
not only unwise hut it is destructive of the com
mon good. Individuals as such, cannot main
tain a state nor build • section. Corporations
In their corporate capacity are just as essential
to the thrift of a community as the individual
farmers, physicians or any other class of its
people. We cannot afford ruthlessly to destroy
them. We cannot afford to do less than give
them all needed protection and encouragement.
In my honest judgment, this convention cannot
do a better thing than say so far as they have
the power to control the laws of uhe states at
the south shall he such as to protect legitimate
ly invested capital wherever at the south, it
it shall be placed. (Prolonged applause)

President Bryan's Address.
I At the conclusion of the addresses of
welcomes and the responses, President
Bryan addressed the congress. He ex
plained the need for immigration in the
southern states by contrasting the pop
ulation per square mile of some of the
states as follows :
Massachusetts 287; Kentucky, which is the
most densely populated of the southern states.
19; Rhode Island 2&1; Texas 8. He showed the
material advance which has taken place in the
! south and called attention to the fact that edu
! rational advantages were keeping pace, the in
; crease having been 100 per cent, in the past de
rade. in aporopriations by soathera states for
this purpose, last year being over sixteen mil
lions. Tne total value of school property in the
south is ten millions; at m er of teachers ‘■4 .
XX); white pupils two and a quarter millions;
aegro pupils one and a quarter millions; pupils
in private schools three hundred thousand; in
paroc liul s.-hools forty tho-sand. He thought
the time was ripe for the immigration move
ment in the south, and telieved that by patriot
ic and united effort on the part of the intelligent
men composing the ongrdss somewise and
. praetu ai plan would be adopted.
At the afternoon ses'ion. permanent

court, deciding the results in the other
suits. In the lower court, as will be
remembered, the jury returns a verdict

dicts were also returned in a number of
other suits ranging from $1,500 to 85,000.
Then the city entered a plea of no
cause of action, which was argued for
three or more days before Judge Par
lange. Judge Parlange decided that
there was no cause for action in a
lengthy but interesting opinion.
The decision of Judge Parlange was
sustained, the court holding that muni
cipal corporations of this state are not
liable for any damage done by mobs or
riotous assemblages, except for dam
age to property. Judge Parlange ren
dered the decision, Judges McCormick
