i A curious phenomenon developed i
the cellar of Christian Sc-hnepf's Jru
1 store, in the Biley Block,about l o'cloc
yesterday afternoon. At a few minuU
i before 4 the water began to come i
through a six-inch crock sewer, Asth
river rose the cellar filled U)i to thre
leet. Bsddeniy the brick floor in tb
1 southwest corner gave way. making
ragged bole right in the corner, abot
two and a half feet across. Into tbi
opening the water ran till the cellar w>
. clear. By that time the water in tb
tiver waa at least two feet bight
than the bottom of the cella
tad the pressure caused the eixinc
sewer to discharge the water into th
cellar very rapidly and with conaiderabl
force. The hole in the corner was, ho ?
ever, equal to tho task, and tho wate
from tne sewer passed off through :
without clogging it a particle or in un
way indicating that the eptce into trhic
it ran was limited as to capacity.
It is known that there ouce was a wol
near the site of the Rellly Block, but th
aix-inrh stream with a three foot prei
sure, and a limitless supply back of ii
would in a lew minutes fill it. Occt
pants of the building were conaiderabl

PmaBUEOH, Pa , fob. 18.?At 1 o'clock 1
this afternoon the flying current in tbe [
Allegheny river reached thirty-two feet i
eleven Inchea and began to alowly recede.
As even the wildest estimate bad >
placed tbe high water at twenty-five '
feet, tbe great damage is due to carelesa- !
neeain removing gooda. With nearly I
every iron mill flooded and closed down,
railroad tracks washed away, squares '
upon squares at etfeeta flooded to tbe
second story and tlionsifnda of cellars
filled, the direct lo-a br the flood cannot
fall less than $1,000,000. The poor llvlog
along tbe rivers have suffered so
greatly that appeals for aid have been r
issued by tbe Mayor of Allegneny. j
The greatest losses, of course, fell upon ,

' thip, building Inspectors say the flooded
I districts hive suffered great injury in ,
1 the way of damaged foundations.
To-night tbe rlrer has fallen several
' feet, and trade and street car lines Will
j op-n to-morrow. The damage to
1 railroads has been generally repaired
' and all trains are running slightly b
* hind time. Reports from all np-river
j points show rapidly declining waters,
1 and people are returning to their homes
' to ligare up and repair the damage,
B which, in every case, is far greater than
? was expected.
