STREETS UNDER WATER
BLADENSBTTBO FLOODED AS BE
8ULT OF CL0UDBDB8T.
Mr. and Mrs. Chester Fowler narrow
ly Escape Drowning ? Hone
Drowned, Baggy Lost.
Aa the result of the heavy rains that I
have occurred during the past w??k, terml- j
natlng yesterday In a veritable cloudburst,
portions o^the streets of Bladensburg, Mi,
were several feet under water, and the
lower floors of many of the houses were
flooded. The water has but once In the
town's history been higher than It was
last night, and that was at the time the
Johnstown flood occurred in 1880, when
the only means of locomotion in Bladens
burg was by means of rowboats.
Mr. and Mrs. Chester Fowler of 1253 9th
street southwest, this city, had a narrow
escape from drowning In the swollen stream
near the bridge that separates Hyattsville :
and Bladensburg. They had been visiting
friends In Bladensburg and after passing
over the bridge on their return to Hyatts
ville took the lane leading into Locust
avenue, which was covered with water. ]
Instead of turnipg Into the street that
leads up the hill into HyattsrHle, Mr. Fow- |
ler drove directly Into the rapidly running
stream, and In a minute both he and his
wife were struggling In the water. The
horse and buggy, belonging to Mr. O. G.
Garges of Washington, was washed down
the stream and lost. Mrs. Fowler had al
most given up, when she fortunately grasp
ed the limb of an overhanging tree to which
she clung until rescued by Mr. William A.
Dorr of Hyattsville. who was attracted to
the place by the cries for help. Mr. Fow er
managed to reach the fence at the bottom
of Locust avenue hill, and he, with consid
erable difficulty, was taken to a place of
safety by Mr. John Walsh. Mr. and Mrs.
Fowler returned on a late electric car to
The Water Becedes.
At noon today the water had receded,
and by night, with the exception of muddy
streets, matters in Bladensburg will as
sume their normal aspect. The water last
night stood several feet at the south end
of the Bladensburg bridge, and traffic on )
foot was entirely cut off. Residents of
Bladensburg who had ventured out of town
in the morning had considerable difficulty
in reaching their homes, and the evening
mail was taken over by a man on horse
Mr. C. W. Hutchinson, agent of the Bal
timore and Ohio railroad in Hyattsville,
stated to a Star reporter this morning that
while the water was unusually high the
bridge over the Alexandria branch of the
road was never in danger, and that no In
structions were issued that trains could j
not pass over It. although he doubts wheth- )
er the passage of trains would have been
wise. The water was about two feet from
the rails on the bridge, and the current
was swift. ,
The storm did not in any way affect the
Chesapeake Beach railway, there having
been very little rain along Its line. It
was stated at the office of the company
this morning that all trains were operated
on schedule time.
Water stood in the bar of the Pan Elec
tric House, and also came Into the kitchen
of the George Washington House. Mrs.
Steubener. proprietress of the latter place,
declares that the water has never been as
high as it was last evening?at least, she
states, It has never come into her kitchen.
In a few houses at each end of Main
street furniture, etc., was removed to the
upper stories, but the damage is inconae- j
quentlal. Several persons lost chickens,
and gardens and growing crops are some
what injured. ,
The flood did not affect Hyattsville. ex
cept as is usual upon occasions of heavy
rains, and some of the streets were in
much better condition than were Wash
The Storm Elsewhere.
A special dispatch from Boyds states
that the storm near Damascus and Cedar
Grove yesterday did considerable damage
to corn, washed out fences and flooded the
roads so that many thoroughfares were al
East of Washington Junction and near
Frederick Junction the railway embank
ments were washed out for a space of fifty
feet or more and trains were delayed dur

APPEALED TO POLICE.
Woman and Two Children Given
Shelter From the Bain.
With one small child In her arms and
another clinging to her hand, Mrs. Carrie
Russell, thirty-nine years of age. was
found on the street In the northeastern
section of the city about 11 o'clock last
night. After appealing to Policeman
Connor of the ninth precinct for a night's
lodging she was taken to the station
house and later sent to the house of de
tention. This morning she was turned
over to the board of charities, and it is
expected that she will return today to her
home, which sho says Is at 503 Mountain
To the policeman to whom she appealed
she stated that she was entirely without
funds and had no place to go for a night's
lodging. Her clothes and those of her
children were drenched from the rain,
which came in torrents last evening, and
the little ones were plteously pleading for
something to eat. which the mother was
unable to buy for them. The children,
one a boy ten years old and the other a
girl aged two years, were neatly dressed
and both had bright faces.
When the woman was taken to the
house of detention she stated to the au
thorities there thut she had come to this
city to stay with a brother who lives on
the Bladensburg road, but had found that
he was unable to support her and her
children, and consequently she had start
ed to go back to her home in Baltimore.
Night came on, however, and she was
compelled to appeal to the police for aid.

FOBCED UP THE PRICES.
The Canal Commission at the Mercy
of a Provision Trust.
Provision trusts and combinations In the
Isthmian canal zone succeeded In Increas
ing the price of meats, vegetables and
fruits more than 100 per cent and forced
the isthmian canal commission to pass a
resolution at a recent meeting enabling its
agents to buy supplies in the open mar
ket and without eMrertlsing for bids.
Members of the commission discovered
that all the dealers in provisions who had
sufficient capital to furnish the bond re
quired of bidders on supplies had pooled
their Intecests and cornered the contracts
for all vegetables, meats and fruits re
quired fer the commission hotels and
messes. The combination was In position
to demand prohibitive prices and the com
mission was forced to change Its methods
and enable small dealers and producers to
compete for the business.
As a safeguard, the commission resolu
tion provides that not more than *500 wotth
of supplies Is to be bought daily la the open
market without asking for bids. This limits
the purchases in open market to perishable
