CANYONS FILLED
BY CLOUDBURSTS
Terrific Storm Comes as Climax
to Excessive Hot Wave in /
Death Valley
Thunder Roars and Shacks Are
Turned Into Houseboats
by Great Floods
SAN BERNARDINO. July 22.—Cloud
bursts that filled canyons with debris
and turned bunk shacks at the mines
into houseboats, has marked the climax
of-A hot wave which I sent the mercury
upv lo 140 degrees in the Death Valley
sink. The terrific heat drove out all
of the human Inhabitants of the desert
Just in time for them to avoid the
heaviest precipitation from the moun
tain regions surrounding the sink ex
perienced for 30 years.
The climax of the storm developed
terrific cloudbursts vln remote regions.
One mining camp was almost entirely
obliterated when the floods deluged the
Copper hills. * The distant roar of
thunder ln regions more than 100 miles
from this city could be heard here.
News of the devastation caused by the
storms has reached here In piecemeal,
the fragments pointing to unusual
changes. In the topography of certain
sections. v>
Railroad traffic was Interfered, with
during the fore part of the week. Santa
Fe officials tonight' report that the
backbone of the storm had been broken
along the route. The damage has been
repaired and trains will be moving near
schedule today., 77; .' *
I During the fore part of the week the
Gideon- Marshall camp was aroused by
the roar of water rushing down Alkali
gulch. The miners leaped from their
bunks to see a wall of water, 15 feet
high, Just turning the bend in the rocky
canyon before breaking over the camp.
Several narrow escapes from death in
the flood occurred.
George Harkness was struck by, a
tree | trunk and was hurled into the
awter. He was saved by a shift fore
man.
In the zone intersected by the Ton-
Tidewater railroad many canyons
were almost completely filled with
debris, while at the Boston gold quartz
property. 15 miles north of Silver lake,
seven bunkhouseff were carried away
and a number of horses were drowned,
while the Chinese cook was carried for
a long distance down the canyon; being
found next day helpless from exposure
and his terrible battle for life.
Electric Storms Make Trouble
PHOENIX, Ariz., July Electric
storms, general throughout the north
ern and central portions of the terri

lighting was intermittent and the Glen

The government telegraphic lines
east-and west of Maricopa were dead
for some time yesterday, as were the
wires along the Santa Fe road. West

A suggestion for the erection at the

tral .court or hub. In this building
space would be g reserved for plants

show the complete process of the man
ufacture of some article from the raw
material to the finished state. - * '

nue, at the entrance to which should
be a large electric arch emblazoned
with the words "Dixie Land." ;
