Dam Built By

The expectij break came this

when the earthquake broke aw ay the
mountain t-iid threw it into Cache
creek, was 107 feet hioh. 1000 feet
wide at its base and 200 feet wide al

cubic feet of water, and 1 lie warned
peoble of Rumey, Quinda and Capay
had taken to the Mils and highlands
to avoid the tremendous flood that
was certain to ensue when the pres

No man could' tell just now high
the flood would rise, any more than
tie could tell just whan it would burst.
So the people, spent day after day
and uight after nigh in apprehen

had been warred in time, and the
families had tak?n their flocks and
herds and their most 'valuable- per
sonal property up to high ground.
There they ren;amed cneainned in
tents or sleeping under the trus
waiting for Uie cataclysm.

the beautiful Capay valley. Rumsey
is at the ni)i lher:i end of the valley
and was the first place to feel the
effect of the onrushing flood. The
people, from the hills, saw a great
wall of water, which seemed to them
twenty or thirty feel high, sweep
d(wn out of the canyon upon their
homes and the village buildings in
which they had so much pride.
The water burst from 'thg narrow
canyon a short distance above the
town and at once began to spread
through the lowlands of the valley.
Telephone Operator Lloyd was the
on'y one of the inhabitants remaining
in town, and he Rtuck to his po&t and
told the story of the oncoming flood
over the 'phone until he had warned
the entire country below Rumsey

Below Rumsey the damage was not
nearly so great. The wall of water
had a chance to spread out, and in
consequence it lost its terrific force.
The farmers and ranchers had re
moved their slock and valuables to

lofs t'.'om the overflow. Consequently
it is now certaic that the people of

sufferers from the flood.

all danger is over.
The flood reached the vicinity of
Woodland at about noon today. But
at this place the bed of the creek is
a mile wide in places, and as a con
sequence the flood has not encroach

the. vicinity. If the flood should in.
crease in volume, however, thousands
of acres of the finest land in Califor

No definite news has been received
from the dam itself. J. Creig, pres

Company, and the experts of that
corporation assert that only a small
portion of the dam has yet been car
