Many thrilling escapes are told. A company of i n.*ltla ha? taken charge of tho worg of reoctie, nnd by their ef? fort? several hundred people have- been ?avod, who otherwise would have perish? ed. The situation of the bellaguered peo i pde to-night Is despornto In the extreme, Not only nre they threatened by fire and water but through long oxposure in the cold dismal atmosphere, without sufllct ont clothing, they would havo died In any evnt.

The damage to Cudahy's and Sohwartzohlld's nnd Sulaberger's will bo nearly a half million dollars, about ?otiually divided betwoen the two plnnts. It is estimated that the loss In Armour daile to-day will exp.eed five .m'jriio.n ?dollars, Oakland, a suburb five miles northeast of Topeka, Is deserted. The people began leaving this afternoon, . having heon ?warned by the olty engineers. At 4 .o'clock the water from the river backed ?up over the street car tracks In East Topekji, near the Santa Fe shops. Tho ?wny for the people between Brewer Street Wind tho river to get out was not mado a "moment too soon, as that part of the ,e!ty to-night is completely flooded. Farther out the water rose early In tho afternoon. In this locality several people are still in dangerous positions. It is said tho police havo all the boats JUnrtor their charge, and thnt the housea ajn this district nre given this much pro? tection. The houses (r* this section are being looted and the police are trying to not possession of the boats to stop tho About 8 o'clock a current began to flow ?with great swiftness through a break In tho buildings lining the block between Crane nnd First Streets. This widening of tho current made it still hurdo rwork *o pull the bonts ncross to the pontoon by monns of the line. A great amount of drift wood begun to come down the new current, pressing with groat force against the pontoon. A number of men was start? ed at this point with poles, nnd only by hnrd nnd continuous work on their part vus the drift kept from piling up and pushing tho bridge away. One of the men who worked all the afternoon with ? p. pika polo was Dr. Kastei-, chief surgeon ? of the Santo Fe Railroad. The men prom? inent In tho city worked as common laborers all day.

Tho flood and the sufferers took the nttentlon of every one, to the exclusion of all else. An army of men was engaged In tho relief work, and It would be Idle to attempt to place an es? timate on the Immense number rescued by their efforts. Fire Chief Wllmarth was In a boat which came near being swamped. When his boat struck the swift current under the Tenth Avenu? bridge It was Jerked loose from the hold the men hod on a safety wire, which had boon stretched from pier to pier. The chief succeeded In catching hold of tho guy v. ire. but was compelled to remain there several hours until taken off by a skiff. Tho Insiuio asylum Is very near the river on the south side, and on account of the rapidly rising water It Is not Im? probable that the whole? Institution mny have to bo abandoned beforo night. The asylum' Is compos?;d of ten buildings, and is tho largest public Institution In the State, with about 3.000 inmates. Tho asy? lum has already lout Its Ice and water ?supply. There Is no danger to the Inmates, and when necessity shall arrive they can bo removed In safety. The Kansas River ordinarily Is a very shallow stream, and there are no boats of any site obtnlnnhle. The small boats ennnot be rowed agalnnt the swift cur? rent which sweeps the street. If a steam launch were at hand many people would be paved who are now facing certain death. At the Chicago Lumber Com? pany's yards A. B. Betts, a wealthy clti ze-n. a member of the Legislature, had a gang of men engaged nearly all day In making skiff?,, that kept communica? tion open over tho bridge that connects the two parts of town. ' ALL LEND A HAND. Children suffering with scarlet-fever are compelled to bo near tho-e who are well. The county court house and the Federal buildings are crowded to-night with people of all classes. There Is no lack of help for anything that 1? to bo clone. Men of all callings and profes? sions, white snd black together, work side by side, doing whatever lies In their power. As tho water advanced It became ne necessnry to drive ?mrrlnges and ambu lnnces to the south end of tho pontoon In water so deep that the horses had to swltn. Among those who took n hand In this work were James A. Troutman, Cyrus I.elnnd, pastors of the leading churches; Father Payden, of tho Church of the Assumption, tho county attorney, the sheriff nnd his deputies. A number of trusties nt the county Jnll were libe? rated by tho sheriff to give them a chance to help tho sufferers. If It be? came necessary to get out Into the water shoulder deep they did it willingly. One of the men, named Weatherly, was cre?1ltr,d with saving five lives on the north side. The entire city Is thoroughly at the mercy of any fire that might break out. The Fire Chief to-night Issued an order wnrning the people to guard against flro, Tho Board of Health to-night issuod nn ortfer warning tho people not to drink any wnter unless It he boiled, nnd giving otlier directions for preserving health. John E, Frost, Immigration agent of tho Santo Fe, is In charge of the relief headqunrters. WATER STll.L RISING. Reporters who have Just arrived from the river say the water Is yet rising. An unconfirmed report from "Wamego and Manhattan, west of Topeka, says that another rise Is oomlng down tho Republi? can and Blue Rivers. If this lie true, tho situation here will be grently Intensified. Fire Chief Wllmarth sa y h that the fire, on tho east sjde of Kansas Avenue, in North Topeka, Is rapidly taking the re? maining buildings. The lire Is going to? wards tho wind, and this will serve to check Its progress, but there Is so much burning wreckago Hosting about that the destruction of the remaining houses Is regnrded as certain. People on the roofs of houses nre yet heard calling frantically for help. It Is said that two hoots loaded with people were swamped and that a doson or more people were drowned. Shorey. another suburb of Topeka. northwest of tho ,clty, near the Reform School, is now Inundated. The Jackson sehoolhouso"shelters 100 people. They en? ured the building before the water be? came so high, and now they cannot es? cape. The building is slightly raised from the ground, and if no further rise shall lake place the prisoners may he rescued. They are now standing ?>n benches, the water covering tho flrwor several feet deep. Tho Harris elevator also shelters fifty people. Tho water Is now ho high that It Is rupldy spreading out over tho country north of Topekn. At midnight earlier estimates of tho number of dead are confirmed by refu? gees coming to the city.

KANSAS CITY, May 30.?Unprecedent? ed floods are raging in central and east? ern Kansas, northwestern Missouri, east? ern Nebraska' and southwestern Iowa, the result of ten days of almost continu? ous rainfall. The general situation Is con? sidered most grave, with no immediate relief In sight. Many Uves have been lost, and it Is estimated that no less than 2TI.000 persons have been driven from their homes, many of which wore washed away, and that the property loss will run well up Into the millions of dollars. The greatest damage has been occa? sioned between Kansas City nnd Ells? worth, Kansas, one hundred miles west. The chief suTferor is North Topuka, which has been separated from the main part of the city and become an island. At Kansas City, Kansas, and In the su? burban towns of Armourdale and Argen? tine, and at IJarlem and Sheffield, Mo., near Kansas City, Mo., an aggregate of 10,000 persons have been forced to leave their homes, and 8,000 employes of the numerous packing houses and railroad shop In the bottom are out of employ? ment.

The alrendy flooded condition of Cen? tral and Eastern Kansas, which has been In tho grasp of the flood for two days, became acute last night by a sudden rise In the streams. The rivers nlong which the main damage was done aro the Kan? sas, which at many places from Its source at Kansas City to Mnnhattan, Kansas, a distance of 110 miles, hns spread out over miles of land on either side of Its orig? inal bed; the Smoky Hill River, a dis? tance of another 100 miles, touching Junc? tion City, Abilene, Salina and Ellsworth, fl?>oding all these towns and tho Interven? ing country; tho Blue niver north from Manhattan; the Missouri River, north and east of Kansas City, and the Dea MoineB River at Des Moines. Railway trafile In Kansas Is prnctlcally at a standstill, dozens of big bridges hav? ing been washed out between Kansas City and Ellsworth, and many miles of tracks being under water. Every West? ern rond entering Kansas City Is affected. The Rock Island a,nd Union Pacific be? tween Kansas City and Colorado are laid oat completely, and all Santa Fe trains from the West have been annulled at a point west of Florence. The Rock iBiand has four trains stalled at McFanand, one a I Wichita nnd one at Illtchinsou, und, in fact, trains aro held up at all division polntB.

Tho case was that of Fred Goodman, to which reference was msd? a few days back. The young man has been married something over eight months. Last Tuoj day or thereabouts his wife was walking in the neighborhood of the house on Graham Street, when sha saw three men who were passing along the strraf to? gether. They wore laughing and talking together, and to her It appeared that they made some alighting remnatt* con? cerning her. Shu reported the mutter to her husband and on the next evening when two of the tnree fellows came oy and again apparently made sotne alight? ing remark about bis wife. Mr. Goodman went out und soundly thrashed one of them?O. H. En bank. The two friends of Eimnnk were T. H. Hewitt and H. A. Sp.ence. An a result of the attack on him, Ku bank sworo out a warrant charging Goodman with assault, mid tho case came up for trial yesterday. The plaintiff stated positively that hu had muda nu. slighting remark about Mrs. GorJ*7nnn, and that he was laughing and talking with his friends, absolutely without any reference to the young woman. If Mr. Goodman bad given him time ho said he would hove explained and removed all ground for offenes by disclaiming any Intention to Insult his wife. Dut tho de? fendant rushed at him, ho said, and knocked blm down befara ho could utter a word, While rocognlzing the mitigating cir? cumstances arising from a laudable de? sire to defend and protect his wlfflj 'Squire Thomas dxpraonted tho precipi? tancy of the young man and thought that Mr, Goodman should have sought on explanation first.
