With a rar and the velocity only
attainable by a mountain torrent, the
subway, meant to carry through the
heart of the business section the ter
rific floods of the summer season, gave
way yesterday afternoon about 5
o'clock. A section of Us wooden top.
loaded with several tons of the surface
of the street, was hurled like a barri

The storm yesterday, which began
at 4:30, was the third wirhin Ihe past
three week. In p int of damage to

the business nooses to suffer are on
the north side of Main street
Fire Mains Broken.
The fire mains of the city were
broken by the giving way of the sub
way, and tie city is at present with
out protecUc-a from its ravages. The
sewer mains were also destroyed In
several parts of the camp, the gas
mains were broken, and the electric
liirb'ing of the city interfered with oy

electrical storm, the most severe of
the season, which accompanied the
flood.

lowing the first heavy precipitation ,
was two ana one-quarter niciies me
heaviest of the year. Those who were
the lookout noticed that the
heaviest part of the rain was this
side of the Divide, up Tombstone Can
yon, and predicted that there would be
something doing with the subway.
Within fifteen minutes every street in
the camp was impassable. Those sep
arated from Main street could learn
nothing of what was going on there,
not even by telephone, as the light
ning was so vivid that the phones
could not be used.
Drowning of Horses.
The most pitiful siitht of the flood
v.a. the drowning of several of the
who stood at the subway at Ixiwe'il
counted seven horses, all dead, which
floated past, and two burros, both st"l
alive. Four vehicles floated under the
subway near the E. P. S. W. depot
while five horses, ir. rapid succession
we"c swept down the same pa-sge.
way.
The train from the west had ,'ust
arrived, and there as a large crowd
at the station. When the flood reach
ed its height a crv aroseJrmn several
of t'i- spectators, and The crowd im
mediately l-nshed ivit to see th cause
of it. Floating pa;t the C pper Queen
gem ral offices, were three lore aud
three buggies. Men rushed out in the
hope thi". they could do something t"
prevent their death. It was in vain.
To have ventured Into the torrent
which was then pouring into the mo lit
of the'depot subway would have been
suicide. While men clenched the.r

How the Post Office Escaped.
The fact that while there was more
damage would have been practically
nothing.
The extension of the retaining wall
up Tombstone Canyon yesterdav
proved inadequate to carry the vol-
ume of water which fell, and it over
flowed in several places, carrying
around the turn at Castle Rock sev-

long. Ij, also overflowed just in front j
of the Muirhead boarding house, but
did no damage
Fierce Electrical Storm
A fierce electrical storm accompan
ied the rain. For a few minutes be
fore the' heaviest period of the storm
the heavens were rent with sharp
.' thunder and vivid flashes ct
lightning, many of which seemed to
-ing close.
J. G Pritchard stated last night that
're- rainfall of yesterday brings the
Irecipitation up to the average for

have been nearly so heavy ami U.e

that fell up the canyon was mn
heaviest that ha-i fallen this season.

was at the bank and saw the danger
too late. He said, "When I noticed
the danger the maehine was in. there
was entirely too much water coming
down Main street for me to take any
chance. As good luck would have it,
though, the machine is not damaged."

in the work of rescuing horses, bug

the flood. They stretched a rope from
the Bank of Bisbee to the postofflce

carried down by the flood they could
be rescued, or a desperate attempt
made at least.
The Bank of Bisbee force also were

Fitzpatrick. one of their number, with
C. E. Rinehart. got loose a fine roan

tied near the bank just in time to save
them from being washed down the .

markable coolness breasted the flood
and started up Main street with the
water washing up to their necks. They
got above the Antler bar. when some-
one- got hold of them near the side-

between Rinehart's and the Bank of
