CALLING FOR HELP
TOPEKA. Kan., May 30. <10 p. m.)—
Every foot of North Topeka, inhabited by
10,000 people, is under water. The cur
rent is. so swift that no boat can liye in
It. Several thousand residents have es
caped to the. south side and are being
cared for as well as possible. The re
maining large number have not yet been
accounted for. They have been seen on
tops of houses and waiting for tho water
to subside or be rescued. They are safe
only so long aa the houses stand.
Below town scores of men arc in tree
tops yelling for help. Thousands of re
volver shots and screams have been
heard on the north side— signals for aid.
Women and children in the west part of
North Topeka, 1 where the water is prob
ably deeper than at any other point in
the immediate part of the city, are stand
ing on the highest point within reach and
yet are in 'water to their necks. It is
reported bv men who have been in sight
of the district that hundreds there are
suffering and sick. The current is so
strong that oars useless and early in
the afternoon a. gang was being organ
ized to row as far, thither as possible and
then to swim the rest of the distance.
Several boats and wagons were "over
turned and men and women were seen
struggling in the water.
The river reached the Rock Island de
pot on First street this morning. The
water on Crane street is eight feet deep
and the current Is like a mill race. Per
haps 100 persons have been hurled into
the water at this point. The river ia
twenty-five feet above low-water mark
and is still rising.

Early in the forenoon Company A and
Battery B turned out to help in the res
cue work. Company A was in charge of
Captain E. E. Banks and First Lieutenant
Evans. There were thirty-five men. Cap

four men.. The militiamen were assigned
to police duty and- did' their share, with
the regular force and a number of spe
cials. In keeping the mob from crowding
forward on the workers. In the early
part of the forenoon people were permit
ted to go down the uve.nue as far as the
Chesterfield. Later the dead line' was es
tablished at Second street, and the crowd
was held south of that point.
The men of the battery 'worked like
beavers while the pontoon was being
built hauling up poles from the power
house to be used In making the bridge.
After this task was completed they re
mained on the ground and made them
selves generally useful. ¦' ¦
The pontoon bridge was built over the
backwater to the Melan arch bridge, and
many were rescued by this means. It
was pitiful to note the condition some of
the refugees were In when they were re
ceived on the south side. Mothers with
little ones held .firmly in their - arms
sobbed with nervous dread, while they
shivered and shook with fear and cold.'
In tho case of many of them it seemed
that the magnitude o'f the disaster and
the troubles through which they had
gone had numbed their sensibilities. They,
were crushed by the weight of the catas

Earlier estimates of the number of dead arc confirmed by refugees coining to the city from
North Topeka. In the darkness and rushing water no bodies can be recovered and the dead will
not be counted until the flood abates. All encrgfes arc concentrated on rescue and relief, and it is
impossible at this time to even attempt to makeup a list of the missing.

Business in Topeka is practically at a
standstill because of Memorial day and
most of the stores were closed the greater
part of the day. The flood and the condi
tion- of the sufferers took the attention
of every one to the exclusion of every
thing else. An army of men was engaged
in the relief work and it would be idle to
attempt .to place an estimate on the im
mense number rescued by, their efforts.

came near being swamped. When his
boat struck the swift current under the
Tenth-.avenue bridge it was jerked loose
from the hold the men had. on a safety

hold of the guy wire, but was compelled
to remain there several hours until taken

There is no danger to the inmates and
wjien necessity arrives they can be re

All day long the need of boats was felt.

are entirely, cured by tne great blood-
