j t mav be thut the community has'nt
hal its 9hare of run this season but very
meny people think so. In addition to the
drt sdful downpour Wednesday night
ligjt f bowers continued to fall during
yesterday forenoon, and in the afternoon
another soaking rain drenched the side
walks and streets. The air was sultry
during the entire day and after some light
showers again last evening, another heavy
rain resembling the one of the previous
nif ht eame on and fcli incessantly for
no triy two hours It kIso showered off
an 1 on until early this morning, and peo
ple who before were able to keep back
th( rater hnvt: now found it ini
po.sible. All the overflow of
water from tfce bluffs is draining into the
slough, and in consequence people who
ye; terday still used the lower floors of the
dwellings have today moved up one story
an I are living on the second fljor exclu
sively, and others who had no upper floor
to move to have waded ashore and found
sht Iter with kindly disposed neighbors.
The pump at the mouth of the Fifth ave
nu a sewer is kept going night and day,
bu this of course make9 but little differ
ent e in the flooded condition of the
elo igb. The water standing along the
soi ih side of Fifth avenue has now made
nei.rly all the streets iu the lower part of
the city impassable, except Nicth and
"he mills and shops in the lower part
of .own being shut down on account of
the water, gives the owners of comes in
the flooded districts a chance to look after
their property which is being taken ael
vai tage of by them. Property along the
noith side of Fifth avenue that has not
bet n filled in, is also beginning to show
the effects of the fljod, while any
locility which happens to
be a trifle lower than the rest, is
transformed into a small lake. Csllars
in different parts of the city that have
heretofore been dry are now filled with
wa.tr. Particularly is this noticeable
along Third avenue. The owners of the
Be in block at Third avenue antt Twelfth
stri et have been particularly unfortun
ate. The basement which was used as a
kitchen and dining room was
completely flooded by the inundation
Wednesday night, dishes, silverware, etc.
now being at the bottom of about five to
six feet of wa'er. It was caused by
brick being piled in the gutters, thus
tuning the water toward the building
wh ch forced a portion of the foundation
out, allowing it to pour down in a great
stn am into the basement.
A large hole was washed out on Elm
street near Iluber's brewery and the road
alo lg College hill is in a dangerous con
dition. Out in South Rock I-land the
Hot d tlid considerable damage also, in the
wa of gardens being washed out by the
water from the bluff s. Gaethje the florist
Buffered perhaps the most from the over
flow, his hot houses, beds, etc , being
sub nerged and washed away.
The river is still on thejboom. All the
low lands of the Wapsie bottoms below
Clitton are oveiflowed and the Marias de
Oaie r low lands above Cordova ate all
undsr water. The current of the latter is
now said to have changed and is running
bacl: into Rock river instead of t he Miss
issiipi. Down the river things are in
the tame condition, and the prospects
are for higher water. The rise here has
tlon no serious damage so far, though
the -vater is now lapping along the tracks
on First avenue. The Diamod Jo ware
house is now surrounded by water and
ponds have begun to form along the foot
of Eist andJWest Seventeenth street. In
the vest end of the city everything is in
the ! ame condition. The R. I. & P.
tracks back of the Stove works are over
flow d and the company has a force of
men at work filling in along the weak
points in the road bed.
The tracks between Milan and Coal
V all y are in a bad condition and all
trait s on this end of the Peoria road haye
beer abandoned. The water is also just
com ng over the C, B. & Q., and R. I.
& P, road beds at the foot of Thirteenth
and fourteenth streets, and is rising rap
idly. TheStove works bave now suspended
wort entirely on account of the likely-
hoot of the water coming in on the floors
at any time
Tt e situation at the dike at the west
end f the city is now more Betious than
atan 7 other time- While there is probably
no lrimediate danger yet, should the wa
ter c intinue to rise every precaution will
have to be taken to Keep back the water,
as eyen now it is seaping through the
Tee water has risen five inches eincc 6
o'clo :k this morning and the indications
are t lat probably another foot of a rise
is co ning. The stage of water at Rock
Islanl bridge at noon today was 17 10,
w hie ) is nearer the high water mark o'
1888 than at any time this spring. The
water in '88 reached its maximum mark
o 18. .
The C, R. L & P. road Was again
blocked yesterday afternoon by an
other washout, this time about
two miles east of Geneseo at Spring
creek where the road bed was washed out
for a considerable distance. Other dam
ages were done by the storm to the com
pany's lines in Iowa bo that no trains had
passed either way since yesterday after
noon until late this morning, when they
were again started, and the prospects are
now good for a continuance of train
The R. I. &P., which has had no
trains into the city since yesterday, is
now able to run trom Peoria to Orion,
and arrangements have been made with
the "Q." to handle its passengers iuto
this city, so that passeogers for Peoria
and bejond will be handled by the com
pany the same as usuil,
The Chicago, Burlington & Qiincy
continues to make fairly good time con
sidering the disadvantages under which
it is working. Trains are again being
run direct to St. Lor.is, atd Savanna and
Sterling trains are running right along.
On the C..M. & S:. P. the trains were
delayed last r,ight for the first
time. The afternoon passenger leay
ing here at 2:50 only went as far as Sa
vanna where it was turned and came in
late last night in place of the through
train from the north that was delayed on
account of washouts just this side of
Freeport. It left at 6:45 this morning
and went through to Freeport, ts the
damage has since been repaired, and it
is thought that by tonight the trains will
all be running again.
Not alone is the apprehension of seri
ous effects felt by those along First av
enue but business men along Second av
enue are preparing to vacate their base
ments. At the syndicate power station
Engineer Gowling has been fighting back
the water since yesterday morning, and
has succeeded so far in keep
ing it out of the buil'ing. but should
the rise continue it might be impossible
to keep the water out of the grates and
thereby necessitate the shutting down of
the entire street car system.
For the 24 hours endir.g at 8 o'clock
this morning there was a rise al Dubuque
of 1.4 feet the stage at that hour being

received this afternoon, the water has
rising at the rate of seven inches an hour.
If this is not exaggerated water be more
plentiful here by tomor.-ow morning
than it has been for sotne time.

A north country Scotch boy had dislo

to a "bone setter" in whom she hail great
faith. The leg was duly examined, and it
was found necessary to haul it very severely

the bone in." The lad was lileral with his
screams while this was going on, but event

a few days.

They were having a little conjugal argu
ment about the fondness of women for cos
metics, when lie thought to clinch the
argument by exclaiming, "Angels never
paint." "Perhaps not," she calmly re
plied, "but all the same, you never saw an
angel that wasn't painted." And the only
way he could get out of it was by declar
ing that she was an angel, which com
pelled her to admit that he had seen at
least one unpainteel angel. New York

ville qainry Goes to Pieces Now
The Rock Island-Moline club won from
Jacksonville yesterday by a score of 7 to
1, Cushman and Sagebeimr in the points
for the Twins who now are a tie with
Terre Haute for second place, Rockf ml
A report comes from Quincy that the
new club recently organized in that city
has collapsed because the Terre Haute
management was dilatory in releasing
Laraque to them If the Q lincy manage
ment proposes to be so sensitive about
a thing of that kind, their withdrawal is
good riddance to the league. Quincy
sterns to have been spoiled by Secretary
McCauli in begging the club back into
the league after its first withdrawal. But
the worst of it is the Quincy people have
probably pulled the wool oyer McCa nil's
eyes and after getting their $)t;0 forfeit
money back, have if the report i3 true of
their second break-up, simply given
the league the worst of It All of which
is not a refreshing commentary on the
tact judgment and ability of the said W.
S. McCanlL The delay of the secretary in
compelling Terre Haute to give Laraque'
to Q iincy is on a par with his disposi
tion in permitting Mackey the blacklist
ed player of the local team to play with
Aurora, and also his persistency in plac
ing Rock Island a few points below its
proper position in the official percentage
column. McCauli in fact seems to have
made a mistake when he deserted the on
ion patch for the ball field, and the best
thing the league can do in behalf of its
own preservation is to bounce the b! und
erline and get a secretary who is compe
tent to discharge the duties fairly and
