The Story m (tie Flood at Flic
ulx Told by the Clirnnlclo.
To the eastern pipers which arrived
to-day we are indebted for the first
news of the Hood at Phenix and viiin
ity. The news was telegraphed to
that enterprising newspaper, the San
FranrNco Chronicle, and wiieJ east
and cent by mail around Ibis way.
This Hood happened a week ago to
morrow, and the heaviet rains occur
red on Monday. Probably by next
week we will get additional pews.
The Chronicle's stxtisl from Tem
pe, Arizona, says the Salt Kiver valley
has just b en visited by the greatest
Hood on record. Thursday mominc
early Salt river had iien seventeen
feet atove the ordinary level at a point
twenty eight miles above Phenix. At
Tempe the railroad bridge was swept
away. A little south of Phenix the
rier left the channel and overflowed
a number of farms, cutting out the
tracks. Many farm housYs built of
adobes crumbled away and others of
frame floated off to the northern edge
of the flood, which was a mile wide
und about three feet deep. The river
entered the city of Phenix, flooding
out many of the poorer families. The
Territorial Insane Asylum had a nar
row escape, the water being banked oil.
The electric works were flooded and
the town left in darkness. About 100
adobe houses fell in and a large amount
of personal properly was lost. The
water did not penetrate to the busi
ness part of the town, which is built
on high land.
Measures for the relief of the needy
have been taken. Churches and pub
lic building" have b en thrown open to
the shelterless aud a subscription has
been started for their benefit, but
many families a.e still without protec
tion. 'I he river began to fall Friday
and ha ncirly reached its norm ll
point. The loss i- not les than f 123,
000. of which one third fell to the
railroad company. Alout five miles
of track was wa-hed ou! and a bridge
destroyed. They will be at oi ce re
placed. The first lxat crossed the
river to Tempe this morning. The
telegraph w.re is how being stretched
acro- llie rin-r und will bo working
to morrow. '1 he damages to canali in
the valley is not great and they will
Ik MKin working again.

Mexicans at Sulphur Springs, about
33 miles from Tombstone. Their
names were Gareio and Castillo.
Both had families at Willcox and their

on Sunday by T. J. Hill. Both men
had lieen to Tombstone, hunting for

at 75 tons. The process used is a pe
culiar one and includes a miiliitudeof
mall furnaces, each holding a charge
of about one ton. Unlike the usual
zinc tmelUr process the presence of
lead is no detriment, but, on the con
is desired, aud forms part of the prod
uct. The zinc lead bullion is to be
us-.d for making paiut, and is claimed
to be equal to pure lead, for the pur
pose. The plant at Canon will also
include furnaces for the purpose of
saving the gold and silver in ores,
which metals, with the silica or other
gang matter, gather on the grates

form of "clinker," and which are read

The plant when nil completed, will
cover twelve acres of ground. The
management has contracted for the
dumps of the Col. Sellers mine near
Leadville, which contains anj amount
of zinc, and which will ke p the
works running for an indefinite length
of time. It is sincerely to be iKped

however, has been achieved by modern

More than 300 different industries

steamship. To build a 2,50O-ton steam
ship requires COO men in direct and con
