SLIGHT RISE IN RIVER TODAY:
SOME DETAILS OF DAMAGE
While the Mississippi river contin
ued to rise ' according to measure
ments, taken at the Hock Island
bridge, coming up .03 feet this morn
ing and attaining a stage of 13.05, the
rains of today are not ex
pected to cause any marked increase
and the damage will be limited to
what is now within reach of the flood.
" The river as it stands now is un
comfortably close to the danger line,
which at this point is 15 feet. Th
pump at the outlet of the Fifth ave
nue sewer is kept working steadily
and a heavy rain at this time would
cause a repetition of the trouble of
the spring when some of the residence
part of the city east of Second street
was under water for a time. Up and
down the river each way some minor
damage is reported, the crops in the
lowlands being affected. Muscatine
island is in danger to some extent,
but the crop of that fertile tract is
The Clinton Herald describes the
condition of affairs along the bottoms
between that city and Princeton,
which is similar to that reported else
where, as follows:
"Iietween this city and Princeton
the fertile farm land adjacent to the
river is a sea of water and indeed pre
sents a desolate and waste appear
ance. A trip through Ihis section on
the train perhaps reveals the true
state of affairs better than if viewed
from any other point. The railroad
tracks run through the inundated sec
tion and on each side of the train for
a long distance no land can be seen
except the exceedingly high points.
In the spring a large section 'of the
country was flooded, but spread over
a much larger territory where the
country is so Hat, and the additional
two feet of water has injured crops
that were not preiously taken and
are now a total loss.
"From the train haystacks and
shocks can be seen floating around
and in many cases marly all the win
ter's supply of forage has been float
ed away. The fences are submerged
anil , in places not even the tops of
the posts are sticking out.
"The cattle are nearly without
pasture, and in many instances 4() or
50 head are compelled to graze on a
high place in the field comprising not
more than an acre."
At I'.et temlorf, the new suburb of
Davenport, the shops of the P.etten
florf Axle company have been com
pelled to close on account of the wa
ter having invaded the floors.
The forecast for today follows:
For IS hours ending s a. in., Friday,
Oct. 2, l!Hr?, the Mississippi will fall
