SECOND FLOOD ANOTHER FLOOD COMING DOWN CANADIAN R.VER. C.iuslnrj Much Anxiety It Is Greater in Volume Than the One Now Re ceding Official Notified to Move All M-itsrlal. . An Oklahoma special says: Rail way olllcials in Oklahoma City and rallnmd men nil slong tho valley ot the South Canndlnn river are bolns ndvlsed by wire today or nuothor big rise coming down the river Trout Colo rado, duo tw snow and heavy rains. The olllcials nave been notified to get nil loose material out or the way as It Is believed the Hood will be greater than the one now receding. r fj. Tho railroads hero liavo just com menced to recover frum their crippled condition, l-ist night tho first through train ovor the bridgo at Purcell was al lowed to pass on Its way to Oklahoma City, and points north of hero. Since the bridge nt Purcell has been In such bad shape passenger traffic for Texas, Now Mexico and California points lias been tnkon caro of over the Shawnco line, over tho bridgo near Asher, to Texarkann. In Texas tho passengers wero transferred to tho Guir, Colorado and Sanla Fe and the Southorn Pacific lines. Now that n second big rise Is headed this way and from tho Tact that tho bridge at Purcell Is In a safe con dition all passenger traffic to Califor nia, New Mexico nnd Arizona will bo handled through Oklahoma City. -1 Canadian City,. Tex., Ojcl. i;. There Is much uneasiness here over the sec ond flood which Is now coming dswn tho South Canadian river from Colo rado. Tho river at this place, which caused great 'destruction to railroad property, has again commenced to nso nt a very rapid rate and fears nro cn tortalned that repairs on the railway hero will hnve been accomplished for naught. Tho workmen In tho employ of tho Santa Fo, who hnvo been re pairing tho roadbed and bridges In this vicinity, have been Instructed to removo nil loose material beyond reach of the second Hood nnd to innko ' nrrangements for tho protection of the repair work wjilch would have been finished this week. Reports from Col orado indicate that tho second flood will greatly surpass tho recent high water scon hero. Purcoll, I. T., Oct. 11. Tho roport of nuothor rlso in tho South Canadian liver Is causing anxloty hero. Last night tho two Santa Fo pllo drivers finished thu work of putting In somo 100 foot of troBtlo work nnd repairs on tho bridgo and permitted tho first train to cross In five days. It Is be lloved hero, howover, that n second flood can do but Ilttlo damago to the railway proporty because of a now channel cut by the river which glvcs- tho water moro space. Thero Is much apprehension ovor tho trestle work on account of tho fact that tho new chan nel runs' under tho approach to tbo bridgo which has just been repaired. Barnett Glbbs' Will.
