At 7 o'clock Sunday morning the
rain gaugo showed that 14.53 Inches
of water had fallen in the previous
twenty-four hours. This Infinite" vol
lime of water was racing through llllo
to And Its level In thu sea. As the
darkness camo down upon thu city
Saturday night, thu clouds hugged
closer tu tho earth and their Inexhaust
ible contents came down In ava
lanches of drops and sheets of spray.
A llttlo after 5 o'clock tho heavy
tail rare at tho electric' lignt station
carried like drift wood down thu river.
Tho pipe was of Iron and ovur two
(ect in diameter, iiul It was tossed
about llko straw. It was soon discov
ered that tho head gates near Rain
bow Fnlls were clogged nnd no water
van coming down the big sluice to
turn tho electric dynamos. Manager
Bcdgcwlck went at once to Halnbow
Kulls, where hn found tnu sluleu hend
burled to thu depth of three feet. It
was out of tho question tu open thu
clogged water Head.
Therefore llllo went to sleep wet
and In darkness. How dark and how
wet nobody knows except those who
tuny have fallen Into a cistern in an
unllghtcd cellar. Candles and kero
sene lamps were brought Into requisi
tion, and an occasional feeblo ray
piercing the Stygian darkness was all

Walolama Bursts Banks.
I-nto Saturday afternoon grave
tiouble was brewing in another quar
ter. Tho bed of tho Walolama stream
had becomo a lake. Tho outlet ot
this stream was formerly at a point
on Front street now occupied by
Ilackfeld's lumber yard. Thu cannl
cut to thu Wnlakea river mauka of
Kront street, to divert the course of
tho Walolama, was gUen moro work
that it could do. The whole district
umth of Church street and makal of
Volcano street was Hooded. Many
houses occupied by Japanese, Chlneso
and Hnwallans were covered with wa
ter on tho first floor and were In Immt
uent danger -.of being cnrrled from
their foundations by tho rising waters.
Fonohawal street was covered with
water coming up to tho bed of hacks
Kront street was a sheet or water, cov
ered with floating pond lllllcs, from
Ilackfeld's coffee mill to Davles'
warehouse. Tho big 300-foot warn
house belonging to Haekfeld & Co.
was In danger. Tho wholo Haekfeld
fcrce from Mr. Humburg down wcro
on the spot to do what tbey could to
avert disaster. The warehouso was
stored with all kinds of merchandise.
Lumber Yard Devastated.
When darkness camo the grade In
Front street Btlll stood a substantial
barrier between thu lumber plant and
ttlll raising waters. At 10 o'clock thu
current broke through the loosu soil
beneath tho macadam at the corner of
tnu' planing mill, on tho city sldu of
tho big 300-foot dry shed which pro
tected suiuiuo feet or dressed lumlier,
Tho freed waters literally scooped
their nay to tho Bea soon creating a
channel eight feet cleop and forty feet
wldo across tho road. Tho water
main to Walakea was snapped and
that suburb, though submerged, still
was waterless. Tho soft sandy soil
soou crumbled from beneath the foun
dations of tho planing mill and tlm
dry lumber shed and tall plies of lum
ber toppled over.
Sunday morning revealed a state of
wreck and confusion in that lumber
yard. Thu dry lumber shed was tilted
toWard tho new Walolama river, mndu
during tho night and its long roof was
torn and mangled as It touched by thu
breath of a Kansas cyclone.
Damage had been wrought during
tbe night, nccordlng to Mr. Humburg,
of from 1D,000 to 120,000. Tho Hack
feld force was on hand bright and
early at tho work of salvage. Hum
berg, Castcndyke, Patterson, Conradt,
nichardson, Andrews nnd tho rest of
them with gangs of Orientals worked
like Trojans to Bavo lumber from be
ing carried to tho sea. In tho after
noon Sheriff Andrews sent down a
gang of twenly-ona prisoners to aid
In tho work. Leaning towers of
bonrilB nnd scantling wero pulled
down and tbo Japs worked llkn water
rats in retrieving whatever roll into
All day tho wreckage was viewed by

No Damage to Olaa.
At cloven mile, tho rainfall Is re

as high as three to five Inches. This
water would seemlugly be swallowed
up by tho earth. It was this phenom

soil that prevented the flood from

The little schooner Alice Kimball
which arrived from sea yesterday had
a very hard time of It after she passed
Koko Head on her way to Kahulul on
Saturday. She met with terrible weath
er on the trip and a high wind and
very heavy sea made things uncomfor
table. In a very severe squall which
the vessel mixed up with, her fore rig-
glng-was earned away and her nialq
rigging badly strained. As there ap
peared no chance that tho storm would
subside, Captain Gardner determined
to put back. This be did nnd tho ves
sel was plCni'd up by tho Kcarless yes
terday afternoon a couple of miles oft

safety. Captain Gardner was compll-1
mented hy tho vessars owners on the
neat job he did In bringing tho vessel
to port without losing tier masts. The
rigging on the Kimball which Is very
old win bo replaced and she will then
be In One condition.
