Tho wet sponEO of the air was squeezed last

the wnter was wiling out of It no suddenly
that things below went floating. Tor
threo hours and n half West strcot. from
Fulton to Duane. and tho side streets
for hnlf n block toward Greenwich, were under
water from an Inch or two to threo feet
Through tho water splashed street cars,
cribs, trucks and other volilclcs, nil
loaded down with men mill women,
while other men nnd women who wero
bound to or from tho Hoboken Ferry waded
hcioss tho totrenl. Tho Incoming tide backed
up Into the sewers nnd met ths rain water that
was trjlng lo flow out from tho streets. As
soon as tho tide turned the water subsided and
left Vcnev stroet nnd tho buildings along It
reeking with sower filth.
The water begun to rise about .r:!l() o'clock.

Hooded tho fruit nut Into the stroet. The sa

tho water by tho barri'lful Tho water ran
over a step Into tho restaurant nud caught
n lot of customers bv surprise. Some who
waited to llnli.li their meals had to
wade out through two feet of water
Ono waller earned half n dollar earning
two diners out on his back. It wns three hours
bofoie tho water subsided in that place. In tho
saloon nt 1 10 est street the customers sat on
the tables with their feet on thu chairs. The
bartender and wniter nadeil through eighteen

Foremen Murray and Tlmmermnn of tho

Hundreds of passongers who came In on tho
Hoboken boats were held up by the flood dur
ing the thickest downfall of rain, while hun
dreds more utood in Washington Market wait

or trucks waded across, and women followed
suit. Many took olT their dress skirts to do it.
At first bo)s had a footbridge of Planks at
Vesey street, over which men and women
wnlkod for a cent each. It was floated away.
Hundred of fruit crates and boxes were
alloat and a wagon broke down In tho water
bee uise of Its minv passengers
There was an exceptionally largo orowd in
Central Park vesterdav afternoon and Iten
jovvd Itself so thoioughly that It took no notice
of tho warning given by tho lowering clouds
and did not start early forborne. When the rain
began to fall heav lly, at fi.MUo'clock. there was a
grund rush for shelter. Many scamiiered for
the nrches. hut this limited spaco was not
enough to hold them, and nearly every big tree
In the more frequented part of the park had
two or more peoplo under It
Tho Arsenal and police station were crowded,
andevonthe monkey house, which Is not an
exceptionally pleasant place in muggy weather,
was full of peoplo who preferred bad air to a
wettliiB. Even then many wero drenched.
Soinoof those who were under the arches did
not escape wet foot, nnd the rain was so hard
that tho trees were useless us shelter. Somo
of those who were under tho nrches re
mained ns late as 10 o'clock last night. Sov
oral baby carriages were left at the police sta
tion for the night.
Just after It began to rain hard the sidewalk
In front of tl East (seventeenth street caved In.
The building Is used for oflleos and studios,
and some of the ttnauta who were In
tho building concludod t lint, the front
wall wus about to tumble and got out ns
quickly as possible. Then they rejiorted to
tho police that tho building was unsafe An
Investigation showed thnt the cave-In was
caused by the rniu washing nut somo of the

Then the tenants made n break for the street,

Long Conference nt the White House Re
garding the Appointment of Ofllters for
the New Rrgliiieiits-teriins of the I.nte
War with Spain to Have the Preference.
Washimitov, July 8.-Gov. Uoosevelt nr
rlvcd In WnshltiEton thlsinfternoon nt 4 o'clock
and will be the guest cf Presldept MeKlnloy lit
thu Whlto House until to-morrow or Monday.
Ho came in response to u telenraphlo sum
mons from the President, and was met at the
Pennsylvania station by Acting Secretary Cor
teljou Ho was driven immediately to the
White House. He talked with Mr. Mclvlnlov
In the Cublnet roomfor a quarter of an hour
and then left the house while tho President
and Mrs. McKlnls) went for a drive.
The purpose of the President In summoning
tho Governor, ns Mr. Uoosevelt lilmsolf said,
was'to have a talk with him regarding the or
ganization of tho ten new regiments of volun
teers about to be recruited, nn.l particularly
with loferenoe to the appointment of principal
ofllcers for the regiments. After dinner to
night the President and Gov. lioosevelt had a
long conference in regard to the coming ap
pointments. It being the doslro of Mr. MoKln
ley to carry out conslsientlv the unnounced
policy of the Administration to appoint these
ofllcers solely on their merits. After tils first
Interview with the President tills nfttrnoon
Col. lloos-evelt said:
"Now thnt the President has asked my ad
vice In regard to thise appointments I hnvo no
hesitation In expressing to him my opinion
thnt tho officers for tho new regiments of vol
unteers should he chosen strictly from the list
of those who berved In the Spanish-Amerlcnn
war, and so far as possible from those who
served with special distinction nnd from first
to last demonstrated their capacity for taking
care of nnd commanding their troops If a
sufficient number of these vetorans are avail
able It wo-! d .seem particularly wise, in tho in
terests of justloo and efficiency, to appoint
them to commissions In the new volunteers.
I shall tnko occasion, of course, to recommend
a number of my old comrades in arras In the
Iloncli Riders' resriment. for they deserve
places and some of them want them. But I
have no fnvorltej, except as thev may deserve
consideration on a"count of their seivlces dur
ing the recent war."
The President was asked to-day to appoint
Col. Ward, late of the L'O'-'d New York Volun
teers, to a Colonelcy In the now volunteers and
It was understood that this officer Is among
those who will be favorably recommended by
Gov. Uoosevelt.
As soon as Gov Uoosevelt saw the President
It was made clear to him that Mr. MeKlnloy
wished to consldercandldates for commissions
on the merit 'basis only, and that ho had sent
for the Governor, first, because he believed til
judgment in military matters to be excellent
and, secondly, because he is a rcrornn volun
teer officer hlmelf, who will be governed by
no motive of politics In discussing the candi
dates for appointment.
Witblnlthe last week a great many candidates
for commissions have been presented by Sena
tors and members of Congress, and the lum
ber of these recommendations Is not limited
ov the.'numberot ongrossmenwho have called
ut the White House within that time, for a del
uge of letters relating to the proposed appoint
ments have been received from distinguished
men In every part of the country. Z.Th Presb
debt has caused It to be made" known very
plainly, however, that the same rules which
governed nppolntmentsiforthe Spanish-American
war will not obtain at; the: present time,
but that veterans of the recent war will have
the preference In every Instcnee, without re
gard to polities. This Is not regarded, of
course, ns no admission that the appointments
Inst venr wre not wise one. hut simply nsnn
expression of the President's view that recent
milltnrv experience Is a vnluable consideration
in making and issuing the new commissions,
A ronortor of Tiik Si'n asked Oov. Itoossvelt
to-night If there wns any truth la the report
that he has Ision summoned to VvashlDEton to
have the post of Secretary of War, tosueceei
Bussoll A Algor. offered to lilrn.
"There are some stories that are not worth
denying." was the reply.r"nnd this Is one of
them. To becin wltn. the President wouldn't
offer me the Place of Seeretnry of War. and. In
tho second Place. If there were fourteen Sec
retaries of War I coul 1 not give up tho Gov
ernorship to be made one of them."
In thocourspof ,i running conversational out
matters of present public Interest t lie Governor
referred brieflV to the Sainpson-Kehlo). Hodg
son eontiovi rsy. siving that thu easo was nn
exceedingly unfortunate one. nnd that
tho proper authorities should treat It
"with a heavy hand" This wns in con
nection with n rumor in circulation to
day that Col Uoosevelt was to be
culled back to the post of Vsslstant Secretary
of the Saw, which rumor he characterized ns
the must nbsmd of nil
lteferrlng to nntl-expansinn anil the antl-ex-pansionlsts.
Gov, Uoosevelt said'
"Of course over) Amorii nn worth) the nnmo
must stand behind the President In hks
resolute purpose to tiring the Insurrec

have no question that by tho beginning
of the ralnv senson Oen Otis will be in

Then the President will see that tho reign
of absolute Inw and justice follows It
cannot Im too clearly kept in mind
that tho whole trouble is due to men who for
two months prevented the ratification of the
treatvof pence, nnd to tho-o who declined to

It Is nil the moro to tho credit of the Admin
