Mexico City Aug. 30. A conserva- tlve estimate of the damage wrough'. i at Monterey ty the flood pluces the dead at 1,400 and the property loss j at $12,000,000. Tin- river has gone down and all flood danger Is over. One quarter of the city of Mon terey is destroyed and 15,000 persona arc homeless. j The water mains are usehs and the city consequently is without drinking water, neither is there lis it nor street car service, for the power plant is seriously' damaged and It will be impossible to resume train service for a wei k. The city threatened with a food famine. The slaughter hotwes have been do- , etroyed. Ten thousand persons are being fed on bread, coffee and soup by the municipal authorities and the I American consul is giving food to ull ! who apply. Thousands of persons have taken, refuge jri thi cuihedral and churches. Many adobe utruc tures. eoaked by rain, are falling, und there Is some additional loss of life from this cause. The railroad situa tion Is deplorable. On the Branch of the International line between Monterey and Tampico there are a score of washouts. The iron bridge at Man Juan was destroyed and seventy-live miles the Matamoroa branch lino was wash ed out. There are a dozen washouts between Matamoros und Cuevas, and the big iron bridge over the Kiconaga Kio between Saltlllo and .Monterey is gone. The total loss to the railroads vill probably exceed $500,000. Tai greatest loss of life in Monterey is said to have been caused by the giv ing away of the reservoir dam. Mon terey is situated in a cup-like valley and surrounded un three sides .y steep mountains. The waters rushed into the valley down the bed of the anta Catarinu river. The stream ordinarily is 150 yards wide, but with the advent of the flood the banks were fully three uuarters of a mile apart. It is esti mated that eighteen inches of rain fill. The cities of the republic are. responding to Monterey's call for as sistance. I' tilted Slates to Help. ( Washington, Aug. 30. Consul gen eral Hanna at Monterey, Mexico., on , behalf of the officers of the American icclony there, made an appen' to the American people to assist the d--.su- j tute sufferers of Monterey. j "It might be gratefully remem bered and appreciated," says Hanna in tlis telegram, "that the city or Monterey, of 100,000 inhabitant-,' docs 85 pi r cent of its foreign trade with the 1'nited States." Nearly every person In tne el'y suffered lots and many of the poorer classes lost everything. ) Further reports indicate that ail river settlements have been swept away. The town of Cadcreyra. in th river bottom, is said to have been destroyed, and it is feared a In aw loss of life in the country districts ad jacent to he Santa Catarinu river has occurred. The fact that the water' mains urj broken in Monterey has forced the people to use old, polluted wells fur drinking purposes. The local Young Men's Christian association and the American colony arc aiding in tie work of rescue. No coninuinu ation with districts outside of Monterey is possible.

Ail. tween the Santa Catalina river, which carried the flood, and the steel works, which are reported greatly damaged, and he fears that this house was among the buildings wrecked. His father and sisters were in a summer resort, seventy-five miles distant from the city, but he has cousins and any number of more distant relations there. According to Dr. Osilna, Monterey is wedged between the mountains und is on both sides of the Santa Catalina river. This river is 450 miles long and drains the water from the west side of a great range of mountains. It runs from west to east. It is dry most of the year, and the present Hood is the first great damage H has done since 18S1, when it swept a large part of the city away, but no one was drowned at that time. All had been warned in time to" make their escape. Dr. Osunu says that only the poorer J n sidents of the city lived along the river and in the lowlands, though a high Mood would carry it to the bet ' ter part 'of the city. There Were ! waves fifty feet high in the Hood of 1&81, which he saw and great dam age was done to property. The bet ter buildings are built of stone. Only the poorer ones are adobe. The American district is in the northern part of the city and well out of dan ger. Monterey has a population of about 100,000 people. RECEPTION PLANNED FOR PRESIDENT GoMi nor ami Secretary Here. Yeslcr day to IXsciiss .Mattel' Willi Local People. Turner, .. Y., Aug. 30. The trend of opinion regarding Harrlman's con dition lis demonstrated today by a re laxation of the Intense Interest tills community lias displayed on that sub ject. Another Indication was the thinning ranks of newspapermen who lushed here Friday when Wall street first was startled by a report that the financier was about to undergo a critical upcratioli. Cine tiling is cer tain Dr. Friday, the noted special ist, and perhaps several other spe cialista held a consultation at Ardei House. W hat the verdict was can only be conjectured, butif they came to consider an immediate operati l.l they decided against it. Harrimun seems to be in no immediate Hanger but his life must be regulated with extreme care. Arden Hounc is in a slate of. siege, so tar us the newspapermen are coo cerncd. and ull inquiries are met with a positive refusal to talk from do mestics and members ol" the faml'y alike. Mr. Harrlman's health Is not ill cussed anil ull efforts to secure statement have thus far proven un availing. After,,' hi- first talk with the newspapermen .on his arrivi here, the little man of railroad fain-' has sealed himself up In his bono ami declines to be seen by anyon. except thorn- in attendance. However, it is apparent that ki condition is not immediately alarm ing, and one by one the corps "' newspaper reporters have been quiet ly leaving, with nothing to report ex cept that "Harrimun won't be seen. ' Kmployes of the estate who came down to Turner today said that Hur riman appeared on the porch later in the morning in an adjustable reclin ing chair and spent some time In the sun. He said he had a restful night and was in good spiiits. LIEUT.
