of the Disaster to Be Told.
Topeka, Kans., May 31. There is
ground for hope that the worst has
passed but treacherous has the Kansas
river proved itself today .in the ris
ing of the water tonight, so slowly as
to be almost imperceptible. The five
mile stream is settling back into its
rightful channel. Up and down the
official guage has fluttered all day.
Tonight, however. City Engineer Mc-C'jwbl-?
issued a bulletin giving out the
cheering intelligence that the waters
had subsided to the extent of exactly
7i inches. It may be a few hours be
fore another drop will be noticed.
With 175 or 200 lives lost, millions of
dollars worth of property destroyed;
hundreds of pistol shots as signals of;
distress, blended with agcnizlng cries
of unwilling inhabitants of tree tops
and roofs of homes, and the waters
treeplng upward and then slowly sub
siding and alternately changing hope
to despair, the capital city has passed
the memorable Sabbath day of. its ex
istence. Through all this discomforting condi
tion of affairs was added the presence
o a cold, dismal rain. The ardor of
the rescue work of the heroic rescuers
was not abated in the least by the con
dition which confronted them. For
long dreary hours knee deep in water
and some times in water up to their
neck?, they worked with might and
main. Tonight they tan proudly point
to 3iH) or more rescued ones who oth-
i vi.;e might have been swept away in
th' current.
THE SUMMARY.
P.rieily stated the present condition
of the flood is this:
One hundred to two hundred people
drowned.
Eight thousand people without home3.
Four million dollars' worth of prop
erty destroyed.
Identified dead, five.
Floating bodies seen, twenty.
People missing, 20o.
Houses burned, ax result of fire in
lumber yard from slaking lime, proba
bly 1WD.
Banks collapsed, two.'
Wholesale grocery stores flooded,
two.
Big business blocks almost ready to
crumble, fifty.
Wholesale commission houses desert
ed, six.
City water works plant usoless.
The known dead:
EARL HUPP.
ORVILLE RUPP.
Two RUPP girls.
(i. R. GARRETT'S five-year-old son.
Twenty unidentified bodies.
ABANDONED HOPE.
Twenty members of the rescuing
party, tell of how they saw people drop'
from houses only to b-? swept away by
the flood and others tell of men, who,
terrified at the approach of the file,
dropped into the water where they
sank and did n."-t reaprear.
This estimate-! number of the dead
'iocs not include the large number
classed as missing who cannot other
wise be accounted for. Neither does it
include the number who are supposed
io have lost their lives in the fire. In
the latter class, there is absolutely no
means of arriving at even an approxi
mate number of victims. The water is
si high and the current so strong that
all that can be done now, is to rescue
those in the buildings surrounded by
water.
FRIGHTFUL SUNDAY AFTERNOON
At 1 o'clock this afternoon the north
end of the Mellan bridge, the only way
of reaching North Topeka, went out.
All of the pontoon bridges to the north
side were washed out early this morn
ing and the only chance of reaching the
survivors then was by boats. A boat

The boats were too frail to live in the
swirling waters. A number of boats
arrived from adjoining towns and hurry
messages had been sent to other towns
for more.
PLACE OF DESOLATION".
North Topeka is a scene of the ut
most desolation. Not a square foot of
land can be seen in any direction. There
is but a small chance of any of the
residences being left standing at the
end of the flood period.

of provisions. He was two hours in
making the trip of not much more than
4 mile. Here half a dozen persons are
in an abandoned street car just north
of the bridge and have been there for
thirty hours.
EIGHTEEN SAVED.
Eighteen people were rescued late this
afternoon from a house at 1208 North
Monroe street. From this place he

the place was reached. A man who has
Just returned from the scene of the
flood says he could see as many as ten
persons hanging frm trees near the
Sardou avenue bridge at the foot of
Morse street.
.E. D. Lang and Charles WoUlon. San-
ta Fe employes, started out in a boat
early today to rescue a Russian whom
they saw on toji of a house not far
from the bank of the river. They got
the Russian in the boat, which imme
diately capsized. The three found rest
ing places In trees, where they re
mained. The water gauge went up and down
all afternoon until at 3 o'clock a fall
set in. At 4 o'clock the water had left
the first floor of the Rock Island gen
eral offices, but was yet six feet deep
just outside the building. It was then
that a gang of telegraph linemen suc
ceeded in getting a heavy, wire cable
stretched across the top of the pontoon
bridge. A large sand dipper was at
tached to this and used to take large
quantities of provisions to those who
were not yet rescued.
THREE DAYS OF TERROR.
The first flood victim to be rescued
by means of the cable was the Rev. A.
N. Pearson, pastor of the North To
peka English church. Mr. Pearson
said. "We spent Jhree days on the toup
of our house. We were fairly warmly
dressed but had only two loaves of
bread for our family of four during
that time. All day Saturday and today
we had nothing to eat. Our situation
was desperate and extremely uncom
fortable, but we at no time lost faith
in the ultimate ability of our friends to
rescue us. Yesterday my wife and
children were rescued. Today my turn
came, and 1 cannot begin to tell how
thankful I am."
W. N. Keppard and wife, aged peo
ple, were rescued at 4 o'clock, while
they were so numb that they could not
feel and had to be knocked down into
the water before the men could reach
them. They were standing close to
gether in the attic of u house, and so
severe had been their experience that
their minds gave way under the strain.
They cannot recover.
A PITIFUL INCIDENT.
A Mrs. Anderson and her one-year-old
babe had been seen three days
in a tree in plain sight of people who
were powerhss ta rescue them. The
mother clasped her child close in her
arms and managed to brace herself
against a limb in a reasonably secure
position. For three days she Kept up
the battle for life. At 4 o'clock her res
cue was very near but sne lost con
sciousness. Roth mother and child fell
into the water ami wer? drowned being
immediately drawn under by the cur
lent. Harvey Parsons, a local newspaper
man, had a thrilling experience. He
took a boat Friday night and made his
way to a house in the hope of making
some recues. A woman and her baby,
whose" names are unkown, were In the
house and Parsons took them into his
boat. They had proceeded only a short
distance when the boat capsized. Par
sons contrived to get himself and the
others up into a tree and there they re
mained until 3 o'clock this afternoon
when they were rescued. They were
brought to a place of safety but will
probably not survive.
Two small steam boats were put into
service at 4:30, one from Ottawa, and
the other from St. Joseph. By this
means the work of rescue was greatly
facilitated. One of the boats brought

Commenting upon the general condi
tion of trade. Statistical Secretary
Taylor says: "Three noteworthy events
took place during the year: the nego
tiation of a new British commercial
treaty, the revision of the import tariff,
and a heavy fall in exchange. Of these
the last my prove Important. The re
vised Import tariff, owing to the fall In
exchange and the rise In silver prices
since the years 1897. 1898 and 1899, has
left the incidence of taxation very much
as before. But the collapse in exchange
which will call for higher currency
prices for new cargo, with the uncer
tainty of its future movements, natur
ally disturbs the import trade; while,
by augmenting the amount which the
government has to find to pay its gold
obligations, it has led to heavier in
ternal taxation. The pessimistic views
expressed in some quarters regarding
the commercial solvency of the country,
based upon the demand of the govern
ment to pay the indemnity in gold, are
without any solid foundation. The for
eign trade of China is trifling when the
size and potential resources of the
country are considered, and only a very
small adjustment between imports and
exports Is necessary to cover the late
increase of indebtedness. At the same
time, it is disappointing to note that
trade always seems to be the first vic
tim when heavier taxation is decided
upon. What the foreign trade of Chi
na might be is shown by a comparison
with Japan, which with a population
of less than one-seventh, spends al
most exactly as much as China on for
eign goods But before such expansion
an be looked for domestic trade must
be relieved from the taxation of goods
in transit, liyal industries must be as
sisted instead of being hampered by
excise and by taxes on raw materials,
and the enormous resources of the
country must be developed. Meanwhile
trade is slowly growing, and will con
tinue to grow in spite of artificial ob
structions. The commercial solvency
of the country, however, is one thing
and the financial solvency of the gov
ernment another; and there is no doubt
that great difficulty is experienced un
der the present defective fiscal system
In collecting the additional revenue re
quired in consequence of closer con
tact with western nations. Reform In
this direction is urgently needed. As
obstructing the growth of commerce,
any proposals to raise more revenue
by methods tending to check the do
mestic trade, such as the imposition of
t. consumption tax on native goods, or
to hinder the progress of local indus
tries and the introduction of foreign
capital by a lyavy excise on machine
made products, are to be deprecated as
having a tendency to lower Ihe pur
chasing power of the people by pre-
,0?f, she has more tQ gjve , exehanKe:
a condition dependent upon cheaper
transit, which railways will gradually
provide, upon the freedom of native
goods from uncertain and heavy taxa
tion." o

THOUSAND DOLLAR BILL
Waiting' for Owner to f ame Around
and Claim It.
New York, May 31. W. J. Snyder, an
insurance man, is looking for the own
er of a $1,000 banknote, which he found
In the smoking compartment of a Pull
man car on the Reading road It has
been a white elephant to him. The
note was a brand new yellow gold cer
tificate. He thinks he knows the man
wh5 dropped it, but he can't find him.
On the way from Philadelphia last
Friday evening Snyder fell into conver
sation with a flashily dressed man, who
seemed to be in high spirits and ready
to tell the story of his life on the slight
est pretext. Incidentally he remarked
that luck was all coming his way, and
that he had just won $12,000 o:i the
races at Morris park.
When Snyder's face betrayed a shade
of doubt at this statement the stranger
drew cut a fat wallet from his inside
pocket and showed a large bunch of
pellow notes. Snyder left the compart
ment without 1 yarning the lucky indi
vidual's name. .
Half an hour later, as the train was
approaching the terminal. Snyder re
turned to the smoking compartment to
light a cigarette. In doing this he ac
c.dentally upset the box of safety
matches on the floor of the car. In
reaching down to pick them up again
his hand encountered a crisp $1,(100 note.
He stared at it in amazement for a
minute and then made a hasty tour of
the train, seeking the man who had ex
hibited his wealth so freely a short time
before. Rut that gentleman had left
the train.
Snyder thereupon told the conductor
of his find. The latter demanded that
the bill be turned over to his keeping
as railroad property. Snyder refused
to do so, but handed the conductor a
visiting card with his name and ad
dross. That wasn't satisfactory and the ar
gument following ended in threats nf
(arrest. While one of the train crew
was locking for a policeman. Snyder
managed to persuade the rest that he
meant well and they let. him go with
the money in his pocket.
Next morning he deposited the note
with a downtown trust company. Lat
er Snyder told his story to the presi
dent of the institution. The money now
awaits its original owner.

Much Capital Going Into
Develooment Work
J. W. Hanna, Well Known Colorado
Pioneer Says Field Is the Richest
He Has Ever Seen.
New York, May 31. James W. Hanna
of Denver, well known in Colorado as a
pioneer in the mining history of that
state, has just returned home aftr
having spent several months in exam
ining some new placer timls located
near the Colorado river in I'tah and
Arh.ona. In an interview lie says:
"If tbe3 fields were uw.iy up in the
north there would lie thonr-.aiid:; on the
nail by litis iiine, but ihey are in the
other direction. Tiw gold r,la ers in the
Grand Canyon of the Colorado are the
most promising I havs seen and tliis
year a great amount of development
year a great amount of work will bo
doii". Capital from the fast is going
there and some big enterprises art- be
ing lilted out. 1 went down thre a
year ago and hav; taken up ground
which I am working through a p''!"'-'
line.
"There has been prospecting gcing
on in a small way for years, the pros
pectors hauling the dirt from an eighth
to half a mile to water, but it had to
be pretty rich to stand this. The banks
are from 40 to 100 feet above the river
and the richest of the gravel was skim
med. Systematic work Has now been
started. The Hoskimna Gold Mining
company of Boston capitalists has
rpent $250,000 and taken up about fif
teeen miles on the river. The Good
Hope Mining company is putting in an
electric plant twenty-five miles from
the river, close to a big coal bed and
will run feeders to the grounds and
dispose of the power. It has had appli
cations for 800 horse-power already
from prospectors. Electric power will
j be used to pipe the water from the
river up the banks forty to seventy feet
and a great amount of gravel can' be
handled in this way. There is a
stretch of forty miles up and down the
river, where the bank runs ten to
I twenty feet' and are rich enough to
! work and there is an unlimited supply
of water. The climate . is. ideal and
4 work can be prosecuted all the year
round.
"Cass Hite is down there and doing
well, f supiiose-every man in Colorado
i Knows of him and his picturesque ca
lled. He has ground twelve miles above
me and is doing well. There is finite
a r-ttlcment around what has bee-,-,
named the Hite postofTice. Ex-Representative
Adams of Dolor ;s and John
S.. Perky oT Denver are Interested in
ground there."
The center of activity is about 120
miles from the Green river station on
the Rio Grande Western road. The
outfitting point is Hanksville. a pros
perous Mormon pettlement midway be
jtween Green river and the placer
'grounds. Privat? conveyances have to
! be taken from Green River station, but
j it is expected a stage line will be start-

The gravel runs from 25 to 73 cent3

a profit can be made fiom the poorest

direction of Explorer Canton, who
passed through the Grand Canyon of

while the highest figure ever rei-tJ
prior to 1902 was 1S-a. when te i t-l
was 3S0 millions. A comparison of ih.
prospective figures of nearly
$500,000,000 in the fiscal year about u

Should the figures of May and Jun
equal those of Marvh and Apr.i, :t
would bring the total imports of miiu

A COUNT OF CHILDREN
Insisted Upon by a Philadelphia Mag
istrate. Philadelphia, May 31. "fount your
children before you go to l-d. and iiukf
sure they are all in the h-iU!." -advised
Judge Rregy in the Juvenile coin!
yesterday morning.
This caution was forth-ominK afi.-r
several parents had been unable t.
explain why thefr children xr
mitted to lie in the streets luteal nighi.
Some of them said they had so ni.n-.y
offspring they were unable to We-p
track of all oT them.
"Count 'cm. count "em," said the
judge. "That's the way to make jirr."
Petty offenses only were- chjn.-d
against the boys who faced the ju.lee
yesterday. Culprits guilty of h:h an-1
mighty crimes against the common
wealth were missing.
