GRANITE REEF IS NOVMJiER WATER Injury To Construction of These Projects May Not Be Large But Extent Is Now Un knownMany Ani mals Drowned Phoenix. Art. Oct. 19. Several days and nights oC frequent rains, some of them downpours, have placed Salt river and Us tributaries in the flood stage again. Early this mornlne about 120.000 Inches of water, flooding the river from Pinal creek, twenty miles above Roosevelt, submerged the 'big storage dam un der construction at Roosevelt. This afternoon another flood poured In from Tonton creek, a mile above the dam. Sixty miles below the. Verde river began emptying Its flood wa ters. Uranite Reef diversion dam, one thousand feet long under con struction four miles below North Verde and 25 miles below Phoenix, will probably be submerged tonight when the Roosevelt flood waters join the Verde flood. The reclamation service at Granite Reef was busy last night removing all machinery from the bed of the river. Much Damage Probable. The damage on the upper portions of the rivers and creeks was not large as the continued ralnA warned the ranchers to protect themselves and consequently their effects were out of the way. but on the lower rivers, where the creeks empty Into the larger streams, considerable harm has ben done, and it is re ported here that many animals have been drowned, though no confirma tion of this report has yet been re ceived. The principal damage will be at the reclamation works where a considerable amount of new work is hardly In, condition to be overflowed. Most of the supplies and machinery are out of the danger district, but it Is possible that some of the tools which were used In the big dam con struction, especially those below the dams, will be swept away. Groat Rise Feared. The reclamation bureau expects a great rise In the rivers as the heaviest part of the flood is yet to come and while the rivers are hand ling the present flood in good shape, not much more water can enter the river beds without causing a tre mendous overflow through the sur rounding low country. Preparations are being made at the Roosevelt dam to ward off any. loss from such a rise. lUtliilii"- Over Arizona. The rains of the past four days have covered practically the entire territory, and have been almost con tinuous. For four days there has not been over an hour of sunshine at any one time, and the downpour still con tinues, though the clouds are moving northward and eastward. The sec tion director states that the storm will break tonight and that sunshine will come tomorrow. Late reports from the Granite Reef dam Indicate that the water has al most reached the crest of that work and thru It will be totally submerged by night.

HENEY SAYS THERE WIlljEINDICTMENTS Grand Jury Treated to Pyrotechnic Displays Frequently Power Company President Tells His Story of That $12,000 He Got From Brown. San Francl.co. Cal.. Oct. 19. The grand Jury which has been listening to evidence concerning the immature incubation of the plot to kidnap ad raham Ruef. has been hearing more pyrotechnlcal speeches than anything ebe. The Investigation has been enliven ed by some fever scenes both In the grand Jury room and the anteroom of the Inquisitorial chamber, in which Assistant District Attorney Francis J. Heney became Involved In Beveral torrid disputes with witnesses from whom he was seeking enlightenment on this and other kidnaping exploits of recent date. James McDonald, president of the Newman Light and Power company, who Is accused by the prosecution of being Implicated In the scheme to wrest Ruef from the custody of Elisor Biggy's guards and convey mm, bound ana gagged, to a prison shack In some mountain re treat, was one of those who became Involved In wordy combat with the noted prosecutor. Wanted Expenses Paid. "I would like to know who Is go ing to pay my expenses while I am here in town and away from my busi ness," demanded McDonald, on em erging from the grand Jury room, somewhat ruftled and In a bad hu mor. "We'll find that out later," retorted Henry. "You had better to go to Luther Brown and get your expenses. We may have an Indictment for you, and then you will not need any ex penses." "Thank you. That Is a very poor way the prosecution has of doing business," retorted the president of the Newman Power company, after which he proceeded to express his feelings In terms that were rich In feeling. From the dialogue it Is to be in ferred that some Indictments will be foi thcomlng before many days. ,. , Ho Accuses McDonald .Acordlng to the testimony of E. T. Newsom, who, previous to becoming one of Detective Burns' men, was led to take a hand In the plot to kidnap Ruef, James McDonald was the front and back, as well as the top and bot tom and both hides of the scheme to abduct the fallen ex-boss, managing the affair for J. C. Brown, who Is de clared to be a United Railroads de tective. McDonald Indignantly denies having had any connection with or knowledge of the "plot," and de nounces all who have endeavored to Implicate him In the enterprise Mc Donald's story, as he told it yesterday afternoon after being before the grand Jury, is as follows: "It is a dirty frame-up. Merely be cause I went to see J. C. Brown and Luther Brown on private business they have brought me Into this thing, which I think is but the creation of a disordered imagination. In the first place, three years ago my broth er John, and myself founded the Newman Light and Power company. When the price of oil was raised from 60 cents to $ 1 a barrel It became ab solutely necessary for us to shut down the plant at 12 o'clock instead of continuing all night. This man New m had been refused a position by us because he was Incompetent. When we shut down he went around among the saloon keepers of Newman cir culating a petition to discontinue using our power, and went over to Modesto to try to arrange for another power Hue. Accused by Honey. "As far as my being implicated with Luther Brown, it was brought about by my being in the field for money to advance our business. My brother Jack and I went to Han Fran cisco, hunting high and low to raise J10.U0O or $12,0(10 on our holding. I found that there was a company by the name of the .Sierra Power com pany going to build a line into that territory. I went to the office of the concern and met J. C. Brown. He Introduced me to Luther Brown. Both were representatives of the company. We secured the $1:2,000 and jnort gaged our property. "'You got that 112.000 to kidnap Ruef,' said Heney to my face in the jury room. Newsom was brought in to the case in this way: I was work ing for Frank Maestretti here in June and July, and Newsom was em ployed us a detective to go around and get information as to the forming of a political club at that time. "Newsom came to my house at 621 Page street, in July and borrowed llo. When Newsom was at my house J. '. Brown was there also in con nection with my own business, and I introduced them to each other. That is ail 1 know of this kidnaping plot." lii other on Stand. John McDonai ... brother of the wit ness, who was with him at the time he made the statement, corroborated the explanation. "I suggested to my brother that he go and see the Sierra Light and Pow er Company," said John McDonald. "There he met Brown, who wus con nected with the concern. We did not have money enough at the time to Increase our businens and so thu ar rangements were made with Luther Brown for the 112,000 mortgage, as I the records of Modesto will show." McDonald i-aJd that the character Will Divorce Him From Aler. cantlle National Bank To Restore Confidence In Institution. SITUATION PURELY A LOCAL AFFAIR No Spread Of Trouble On Market Expected And Matters Are Well In HandStocks Did Not Decline Much Today. New York, Oct. 19. A perplexing situation Is being faced by the bank and financiers who are trying to straighten out the affairs of the Mer cantile National bank and divorce It completely from association with F. Augustus Heinie, Its former presi dent. With the resignations of lis en tire board of directors in the hands of the clearing house, that institution appeared to control the situation and was committed to the task of putting the bank on a firm footing. For this purpose nine clearing house banks had promised to contribute $200,000 each to tide the Mercantile bank over any distress it might encounter as a result of the suspension of Otto Helnze and company, and It is F. Augustus Heinze's desire to reestab lish that firm. The debit balance of the Mercantile bank to the clearing house this morning was one million one hundred thousand dollars, llelnzo Talks, F. Augustus Helnze said today: "I still hold a controlling interest In the Mercantile National bank. I have not parted with a share of my Mercantile stock and I would like to Bay this about the clearing house committee, It was asked to come into our bank and make a thorough ex amination. It found it perfectly sol vent and said so. Later It added that gratituous blow about 'surplus im pairment.' You know why It did that. Nothing more or less than to induce our depositor to withdraw their accounts. A fine game. It was endeavoring to attract our deposits to Its' own bank." No Sensational Decline. Stocks declined in the final deal ings today; closing weak at the low est of the day In most of the active stocks. The closing quotations on United Copper common on the curb was 8 bid, 0V4 asked. While the prices of metal stocks declined to day, the losses were not sensational and the prices of railroad stocks were held better than had been expected,. Situation Purely Local. It U an evident fact now that the situation is purely local and that no one will be hurt outside the Helnze interests. Confidence In all other stocks and institutions Is being rapid ly restored, and the clearing house association has the banking situation will In hand. The solvency of the banks of New York is unquestioned today, and while a few of the Helnze Institutions throughout the country may be slightly crippled. It Is the general belief that his firm will pay out dollar for dollar. Helnze has asked that the firm be peimltted to do this and be reinstat ed on change, and while it Is hardly likely that the latter request will be granted, the clearing house will take steps to see that all claims are paid as far as the brokers' estates have the funds. KidKvIv Won't Atft. Washington, D. C, Oct. 19.- Comptroller of the Currency W. B. Rldgeley today declined the presi dency of the Mercantile National Hank of New York. of Newsom would not stand Investi gation. A cipher telegram figured In the proceedings.

Westbrook, clerk of a Chlco hotel, were examined in connection with the cipher paper. Mrs. Mclxinakl. wife of James McDonald, while waiting for her husband to emerge from the Jury room, said the hotel clerk had told her thut Newsom went to him and tried to get him to say that he had received the telegram. According to Mrs. McDonald, the hotel clerk told her he had never received the strange epistle. DEIS AND POPS FUSE IN NEBRASKA ! Lincoln, Nebr., Oct. 19.
