The wnter Is up to the floors of houses on this street. In other parts of the village
many houses ard houseboats are submerged.
Almost as qulcklv as It rose, the Mis
sissippi promise to subside, averting the
threatened disaster to the whole East
Side. According to the weather officials,
the worst of the flood is over, and the
river will come to a standstill to-day, and
then begin to fall.
Only the breaking of the levee at
Mitchell. Tuesday, rivermen saj, saved
the East Side cities from serious results.
Thousands of acres of farm lands were
submerged, but the strain was removed
from the dikes ne.irer the cities and the
water diverted from the threatened dis
tricts The quick work of the different cltv of
ficials and the East Side railroad official

In a porltion to withstand the 34-foot
stage predicted by the Weather Bureau
without Ferious inconvenience.
The tracks ard roadb'd of the Chicago
and Alton Railrcod along the East Side
shore were tested jeaterday and found In
food condition, and the company rescind
ed the order against receiving freight rt
St. Louis and announced that all offerings
will be handled.
Other roads followed In its lead and will
to-day receive all classes of freight for
immediate shipment. Forces of men are
still employed "protecting the tracks
against further rise of the river.
Although both the Mississippi and Mis
souri continue to nso slowly at upper
.points, it )s not believed it will increase
the volume of water at St. Louis seriously,
as It Is. absorbed by bars and overflows
before It reaches this district.
At m'dnlght the stago at St. Louis was
creeping past the 33-foot mark. Accord
ing to Forecaster Bowie, it will continue
to rise slowly to-day, and reach its crest
this evening at about 34 feet.
Cheered by the appearance of the sun
yesterday morning, many residnts of
Venice and Madison who had fled from
the towns Monday and Tuesday returned
to their homes and will assm In the la
bor of preparing the towns against further
Many houses in the western sections of
both towns are still flooded and will not
be ready for occupancy until the water re
cedes entirely.
Some apprehension was occasioned In
the afternoon'by the discovery of a small
break In the Madison County levee a few
rods north or the Merchants' Terminal
An alarm was sounded nnd citizens of
the town hastened to tho levee. The
strong current had eaten Hi way through
tho tmbankment and was pouring through
into the town.
Seveial tralnlosds of dirt was rushed to
the spot. It wat placed in sacks which
were thrown Into the breach. After work
ing several ho-irs. it was announced that
the leak was under control.
Street railroad traillc between Venice
and Granite Cit was resumed over the
n.ain line, and cars are now running res
u'arly. Traffic on the branch line from
Venice to West Madison and Newport Is
sttn suspended, the tracks in several
places being tinder water.
At St Louis merchants along the river
front are preparing to pump out the cel
lars of their buildings, and regard the
flood an practically over unless there are
further heavy rains.
It will be several das, however, before
railroad traffic can be resumed on the
Levee, as the surface tracks are still un
der water In many places.
As result of unceasing activity the
offlclaln of Ettst St. Louis feet confident
that should the flood continue to increase
they can successfully resist it.
Although the flood news received by
Maor 8ilas Cook j esterday was decided
ly reassuring, none of the active prepara
tions to protect the city from the en
croachmento were abandoned, but. If an
thing. were pushed with redoubled energy.
City Engineer Helm directed the filling of
the place at Ninth street and Lake ave
nue. Besides the concrete which was
placed there Tuesday, four tralnloads of
dirt were dumped Into It. Another trnln-Ioad.i-
expected this morning, will make
thls(polnt absolutely sife. it is said.
On the southern side of the city the
Illinois Central has filled in the gap where
the break occurred last jear and has
built a sack dike extending two blocks
from the roundhouse at Trendley avenue.
The dike last evening lookr.d like un
necessary work to many who visited the
place, as the water has not risen within
a foot of the top of the railroad tracks,
but It is said that the precautionary
measure has been deemed the best.
In Rush City, a negro settlement near
the old East St. Louis race track, the
Inhabitants had to seek higher ground.
Mayor Silas Cook and City Engineer
Helm made a tour of the city yesterday
morning Inspecting tho barriers against the
(expected fioodwaters of the river. Mayor
Cook expressed himself as highly pleased
with the work that has been done and
sold that he believed that with the prepa
rations that bad been made almost any
stage of water could be kept out of the

Venice is practically a deserted city.
Hardly fifty families have remained in
the city. The others have hauled and
carried their household furniture, either to

This j car they have determ'ncJ not to

began creeping up on the railroad em

rations were made to move.
The moving began Monday morning and
has continued until the town looks abso

out of the town. On the west side of

are under from four to twenty feet of

done voluntarily by other houscboatmen
and fishermen.
The Miatesippl River at AUon continued
to rir jestcnlay. and at 6 o'clock last
night showed a total rise 'of LS foot dur

is ccpected, however, that by noon to-day
the river will show a decline and that
further danger will have been averted.
The water has caued considerable In

The older and Eastern Representatives In
the House, who have hitherto controlled
Its organization, are helping to urge him.
But the Speaker will not have them suc

have the Illinois man sidetracked, but.
Instead. Mr. Cannon is sufficiently acute

No other office would tempt him unless It
