Butte and Gar Theeast track of the Helena Electric lway is in pretty bad shape on lower . in atret and Helena avenue, owing to the rain causing the ground to sink. In onsequence, from Placer street to the BNothern Pacific depot the west side track s the only one used. The newly laid track t .the Helena Rapid Transit company on Clrk street and Harrison avenue held up very well, but the earth between the ties sunk but of might in many places. On all streets :where drainage pipes or sewers had been put down'the earth over them has caved in, leaving gullies very dangerous for horses. SOr Howie street a gully several feet deep h'fl been made by the washing out and ilaking of the earth, and a heavy express wagon which struck the place about the e of the eave suank in so far that it had Sbe abandoned, These caves took place in every locality and on all sides of town, aid drivers should be very careful, as the Boles are so numerous that the street com amissioner has not had time to mark all the -, dangerous places. Paussngers to and from the Broadwater were compelled to cover the distance be : tween the hotel and the motor round-house ea foot. Neither of the car lines could get beyond Kessler's. The water from Ten Mile gan coming down in a roaring flood early - .the day. It formed three separate ponds gear the motor round-house, one between each line of tracks. The one to the south pf the Montana Central spur lay stagnant, gaining steadily,. however, from the falling rain. This continued until the track of the Rapid Transit company, from Kessler's sta .lon to within 100 yards of the natatorium, was from two to six feet under water. It was impessible to run the cars through it and they had to stop and reverse at the edge of the big pool, which covered several acres. Passengers to and from Broadwater had to walk the intervening distance on the Montana Central track, which is elevated and out of reach of the flood. President Lawrence. of the Rapid Transit company, doea not think the track under water has been damaged to any extent, as the water was still, having no outlet. SThe Melena Electric railway did not fare so well at this point. Their track is north of that of the Montana Central. The water between the Montana Central and the Hel ena Electrio tracks was constantly receiv ing sacessions from the streams up the gulch toward Ten Mile. When the water had gotten to a level with the tracks it broke through the embankment under the HelenaElectrio railway tracks, sweeping away tons of earth, and leaving the rails suspended in the air. Through this break the water poured out across the low lands to the south, cutting paths for itself until it reached Ten Mile creek, where it was met by a flood of even greater proportions. Later in the afternoon a dam was formed at the break and the water again rose to the level of the tracks, the surplus being earried off by nataral channels. Ten Mile creek from the electric car lines looked like a river safficient to float a steam boat. At many places the stream was clear out of its banks, and had spread out into numerous independent waterways. The eymer ranch and the Chinese garden near Kessler's were both flooded. The latter sauffered most, the garden truck being badly washed out by the overflow. S tanding on any prominent point on the north side of Mount Helena the Prickly Pear valley looks lke it$ was intersected by streams enough to irrigate the whole state if properly dis tributed. It is a eight worth seeing. nolutside of the damage to strests, the most harm in this eity was along the line of the Davis street flume. At Breckenridge treet the waterarot clear beyond the flume and people living there managed to get out of their houses before they had to call for Reports from Rimini at six p. m. yester *ay were to the effect that that section was overed with water.
