Later,' estimates place the dead in the Ohio floods at 3.066 an !9fi in Indiana, a total of .3,262. Two thousand, it is feared, penshe in Dayton. Ohio, alo'ie. Probably half a million persons were mad homeless in the two states, and the property damage will be < lca-it Si00.000.000. An additional horror was reported last night from Dayton. Fir there, which seemed widespread and prooably uncontrollable, i view of the paralysis of the water plant, probably brought a horribl death to many who sought to escape drowning by climbing to uppe floors of building?. Looting is reported in many of the flooded cities and towns Vigilance committees have been formed to apprehend marauder. At Dayton a gang of toughs went through a part of the city no inundated late last night, instructing the people to extinguish al lights 'or fear of a gas explosion, and then began raiding. University su-ticnts from Cincinnati and the traffic officers dispersed them. Rescue parties at Dayton reported that fabulous sums had beer offered them by wealthy citizens to take them from their maroone-r! home. In most cases the torren?" raged 10 fiercely that it was im possible to remote the sufferers. A' Pe??i. Ind.. whcie a thousand refugees were crowded intt ihr courthouse, the congestion was so great that seven persons wen reported to have been suffocated. Weather Bureau authorities in Washington predicted that rain' in the Ohio Valley would cease within twenty-four hours, and wouk be followed by snow. While the melting of this snow later wouk j add to the volume of the streams, it was believed that the cole wcathc. succeeding the rains woul?! give the streams a chance tt ?recede.? and thus lessen the chances of more distressing condition: along the valley. Ptes'dcnt Wilson issued an earnest appeal to all citizens te contribute to the relief funds for the flood sufferers-. All the force? of the federal government were set to work, and tents, food, medical supplia and stoves were started for the flooded districts as quickly as possible Physicians and nurses and Red Cross agents were also hurried-forward. States and cities everywhere joined in the raising of funds for the Hood victims. Railroad officials were authoritv for the statement that line" converging into Indianapolis woviJd have to stand a loss of $.">.000.000. Railroads were chief sufferers from property damage It wa-; said by engineers and construction bosses preparing repair trains for the flood districts that strips of ra lroad of more than half a mile each had been washed away in several places through Indiana. Concrete and iron bridges, their supports undermined, crumbled be? fore the strength of the torrents. The loss through cessation of traffic cannot be estimated. Only two roads, the Michigan Centra! and the Lake Shore, ma?ntained communication with New York over their own lines, those further south finding mile after mile of their right of way under a fathom of water. Telegraph and telephone lines all over the stricken district were down. Long distance telephone service to Ohio was cut off. with the exception of connections with Toledo and Cleveland. Wires through Indiana were down irt many places, and some of the devas? tated towns were cut off from all communication. FLAMES RAGE IN DAYTON. FED BY MANY EXPLOSIONS Dayton. Ohio. March _6.?Flames that destroyed various build? ings in Dayton*! submerged business sectlcn to-night cast a red, weird glow over the flood-stricken city that added to the fears of thousands of refugees and marooned persons and led to apprehen? sion that many may have been imprisoned in the burned structures. That a fierce fire which appeared to be sweeping through the half submerged business district of Dayton late to-night had de? stroyed the Beckel House where there were supposed to be more than 200 flood refugees, was the consensus of opinion of scores of watchers on top of the National Cash Register Building, nearly two mHes from the scene of the flames. The flames, which destroyed eight business buildings this af? ternoon, are believed to have got a new start in the store of the Patterson Tool and Supply Company, in 3d street, just east of Jef? ferson street. Thence the fire ate its way west, apparently aided by escaping gas and exploding chemicals in a wholesale drug es? tablishment. Investigation at close lange was an utter impossibility. Traced by aid of maps, it appeared that the Beckel House was destroyed some time after 10 o'clock. Whether the refugees had escaped was a* matter of conjecture. Notice was posted in the headquarters of the emergency com? mittee to-night announcing that the city was under "martial law," and several companies of soldiers arrived from neighboring Ohio cities. The soldiers were employed to patrol edges of the burned district and prevent further looting. Rescue squads worked frantically to-dsy to throw back the veil that hides the true story of the Dayton disaster?the number o?
