There waa another' big flood last
Thursday afternoon, but It was not quite
bo high as the big flood of last summer.
There have been more floods down the
streets of this city this summer than
there have been in any previous Bummer
of recent years and most of them have
beun pretty big floods.
If there are many more rains iu the
mountains thia summer there will be
enough water to make the Mimbres river

built.
Grass on the ranges in mout parts of
this County ia from three to six inches
in height and looka better than it hna at
this time of year for many years. There
will be ample time for it to ripen before
the early frosts and an abundant supply
of winter feed for stock is assured. It
was only a few weeks ago that cattle
were eating oak brush and anything else
they could get on the ranges and many
of them were sulTering from want of
water, but now there is feed and water in
plenty and all kinda of stock on the
ranges are improving in flesh rapidly.
George Ilegli, who had furnished many
of the reaidunts of this city with water,
has gone out of the business. Ilia wag
on was a fumiiiur bight on the streets
before the water works were thought of
and in those daya he did a thriving busi
rieai. When the water works were put
in he lost muny of hia customers, but
quite a number of people still bought
their drinking water of him. During
the present year there has been a steady
fulling otl in the number of his custo
mers and the first of this mouth ho de
cided to quit hauling wuter and go to
prospecting, so last week he notified his
customers that he would discontinue
furnishing them with water and the
water wagon ia seen on the streets no
more.
The frequent floods which have come
down the streets within the past few
weeks huve done considerable duinuge in
the upper part of town. In some piucos
the streets are hardly piinbtiblu and will
have to be repaired as soon as the flood
season is over. There has been little or
no duinuge done to that part of the
streets which wus repuired luut year by
Supervisor Purkeo. This goes to show
thut there is no other way to keep the
streets from being washed out than to
lny the surface with rock in hnch a mun
tier thut the water cnunot get under it
and WObh it out.

The floods have exposed a portion of
an old water trough on Main street just
above the Elephant corral. This trough
was put in when there was more wator
in the streets of Silver City than there
has been for some years past. Old

on Mnin street and that the ground was
soft enough for teams to mire in some
places. If there should be many seasons
like the present one those times might
come again.

The iU?xoit Flood I'.Ter Known More
Cams Down Last Snnifny Afternoon.
If the flood season continues much
longer there will hardly be enough of
the Silver City and Northern railroad to
repair. It would have been bettor for
the company to have built the road from
this place and bridged the arroyas than
to have built whore the road is aud have
it washed out every time there is a heavy
rain. At tho time the road was built
this town would have contributed Í10,-
000 to 815,000 and this would more than
have pnid the difference in the cost of
construction. No road enn ever be main
tained where the S. C. A N. is built and
if there is evor a revival of the mining
interests at Hanover and Santa Ilita
there will be a road built to tho minea
from this place.
But for ita timely discovery a fire at
the Rosenberg residence last Tuesday
evening might have been a serious one.
About half past seven in the evening the
servant stuelled smoke in the dining
room and called Mra. Rosenberg who al
most immediately noticed that the pa
per in one corner of the room was scorch
ed. There wns an unused fireplace in
this corner of the room which had been
closed up and papered over. Mrs. Ro
senberg lost no time in gotting the zinc
covering which had been nailed securely
over the firoplaco off. The fireplace was
half tillod with burning soot and the
base board in front of it had commenced
to smoke. A few buckets of water put
tho fire out. The pipe from the kitchen
stove goes into the bit me chimney aa the
fireplace and the soot probably caught
from the fire in the kitchen stove. It
the fire had caught later iu the evening
it might not have been discovered until
it had gained considerable head way.
George Hinman had quite an advent
ure down in Okluhotuu recently. He
carries along a quantity of sulphurio ucid
for the buttery which furnishes the cur
rent for his electric motor to drive the
phonogruph. lie made the mistuke of
putting the acid in his trunk along with
his clothing and other useful and orna
mental articles which he carries and
when the baggage smasher pitched hia
trunk out on the platform of one of the
stations down there the demijohn which
contuinod the acid broke iu pioces and
the acid ran out of the trunk and onto
the platform, blackening everything
with which it came in contact. The na
tives thought it was un infernal machine
and took to tull timber without unnec
essary delay. George viewed the re
mains of his trunk from a sufo distunce
but concluded that it would not be safe
to go and cluuu hia baggage as they
might think he wau a Ruusian nihilist
end tie him up to a tree where his feet
could not touch the ground. He tied
the remainder of his belongings in a
handkerchief and blurted back eai.t on a
viuit w here he will remain until he can
get hid inuchiue in working order ujuiii
and repluuibh his wurdrobo.
Thero hnve been but few days si nco
the commencement of the rainy Benson
thia year that there has not been a Hood
down the Btroets of this city, Sovernl of
them hnve been ns high ns any flood
within tho past ten years, excepting only
the big floods of 18'W nnd the big flood
of last year.
Lnst Sunday afternoon it commenced
to ruin in the mountains around Pinos
Altos about 1 o'clock and it mined atend
ily for about 2 hours. Uetweon 2 and 3
a little flcxid cmne down Hudson aud
Main streets but at that timo there wns
no indication that there would be a big
flood. It increased in size steadily and
in a Bhort time a flood enme down from
the direction of Bear Mountain and this
started a flood down Bullard street.
From this timo the water commenced to
rise rapidly until between 4 and 5 o'clock
such a flood was running down these
streets as hna not been seen boforrvby
tho oldest inhabitants of Silver City.
The big flood of lB.Si will be referred to
no more ns tho biggest flood of recent
yeara, but the big flood of August, 18.13,
will be remembered for a long time by
the residents of thia placo.
When tho flood wus nt its height there
was an unbroken sheet of water along
Ninth street from the west side of Bul
lard to the hide house on the east side of
Hudson, a distance of about 800 feet.
At Seventh street the water Was more
than two feet higher than it has been at
any time before this your.
From Seventh street to the lower end
of town, Bullnrd, Main and Hudson
streets were raging torrents currying
more water in them than has ever been
in them before. Mont of the buildings
on either sido of these streets were more
or less protected by the breakwaters but
some were flooded. The brenkwuter at
tho foot of Main street which was con
structed a few weeks ago resisted the
flood for a time but when the sudden
rise came the force of the water was bo
great that the entire breakwater, with
the exception of one length, wont down
with a crash and an increased volume
of water went down the arroya, causing
considerable damage below town.
A idea of the immense volume of
wator which went dowu may be gathered
from the fact that the flood, apparently
undiminished in sizo, reached below
Whitewater, sixteen miles below this
place.
Considering the height of tho flood
there was much lesa damage done than
might have been expected. Laizure
and Grabe lost about 2,000 feet of lum
ber from thoir binning mill on the flat
above town, and were out yesterdoy
morning look for boards and skantlings
which had gone down in the flood.
No damage worth mentioning was
caused by tho flood to any of the resi
dents in the vicinity of the pluning mill
except to Mrs. Endlich, whose cellar was
flooded nnd a largo quantity of clothing
and household goods were ruined. The
breakwater around her house was car
ried away and other damage was done
to the premises. She sustained the great
est loss on household effects of any ono
in town by the flood. The house at the cor.
nor of Ninth and Maine streets which was
vacatlod only Inst week by George Potten
waa flooded to a depth of more than a
foot Just as the flood reached its height
the brick wall at the near of tho house,
which serves as a breakwater, broke and
the yard was flooded in a moment. Only
a short time before the big flood came
down there were a number of women
and children in tho house looking at it
but a Mexican who was passing with a
load of fruit brought them across the
flood. Had the Mexionn not happened
along at the right time they would have
been in the house until darkness came
on Sunday night as it would have been
impossible to have reached them.
The breakwater at the corner of Bul
lard and ninth streets, on the property
belonging to J. F. Longer waa washed
away and the yard waa flooded. Twoout
house were washed away from thut cor
ner and tho adjoining lot.
A log cabin on the block below floated
down through town. Thia cabin waa
unoccupied but was one of tho land
marks of that part of town, having been
built many years ago. Tho rear wall of
an adobe hut just below the hide house
fell in and the re.-it of the building was
being torn down yesterday.
Wator ran into tho Tremont, Hin
mau's furniture store, Cosgrove and
Brownell'a store, the Timmer House
the Enterprise oifico, Gurdon Bradley's
store and Gillett and Son's. A little
water came into the composing room of
the Southwkst Sentinel and somo oth
er buildings in the business part of town
were more or less flooded. Considerable
duinuge wus done by wuter iu tho Enter
prise office to stock. A large quantity
of paper wa soaked by wuter w hich wus
a foot deep in the room wliere the paper
is kept. The wuter in tho composing
room was not quite so deep but the
floor wns covered with mud from one to
three inches deep yesterduy.
There was no damage dono in any of
the other places which wore flooded ex
ceeding $25, except at the Benton llouuo
at the foot of Bullurd street. The whole
house was flooded to a depth of more
than a foot and a half and the furniture
in the rooms which belongs to Mrs. Gay.
nor was badly dumuged. The curpota
are ruined and the bedding in several of
the rooms was soaked with muddy
water. The occupants of the house es
caped through the windows on the west
sido. It waa thought for a time thut
the house would be washed down.
Considerable damnge was done to the
premises of L. II. Rowllee alve town.
Hia residence was surrounded by a
breukwuter and he had a large number
of trees planted nround his house. The
breakwater wus carried away aud muny
( f the trees were broken down.
There was but littlo dañineo done to
the railroad truck iu town except to tho
(twitch oppooite the Southern nud a sec
tion of truck between tho Timmer Hoc!
find tho bridan where the rails mid tes
hang supliendo, f r a distance of 3-) or 40
feet.
Bullard ftrert wr.s damaged but littlo
except below the Mmndwiy eroding.
From there to tho Benton Hoimo the
slrret is badly wiithod out. Repnira
were commenced yesierduy. Mam
street la practically imp.irwnblo from
Ninth street to n point below the Ele
phnnt corrnl, but tho work which was
dono o'i this si rent lust yiar between
Yankee street nnd tho breukwuter vvna
not damaged.
Many of tho people who live between
Bullnrd and Hudson streets or who were
between those streets when the flood
?nmo down wore badly frightened and
morsurea wore tnkon to rescue them in
case the Hood got higher, an many ex
pected it would, as it wna raining in the
mountains until after tho highest point
hail boon reached. A ropo wna thrown
across Bullnrd street opposite tho ron
idenco of Dr. Bailey nnd a crossing of
ropes and ladders wns nindo opposiio the
whnlesnln liquor store of Fleming nnd
Rosecrans. A cabio wnsstretchod across
Main street nt the Brondwny crossing so
that it is' hardly probablo that thire
would have been any lora of lifo even if
the flood had been higher thnn it wan.
Harry Whitehill wan out on horseback
rendering assistance whero it nppenrod
necessary. He took the waterbound
people in the Benton Houso out and
brought Borne Indies acroes the flood nn
Bullnrd street from a house opposite Dr.
Bailey's.
People who lived outside the flood
limits gathered on the hillo on either
side to boo the rushing waters and not a
few were apprehensive of gravo danger
to peoplo who were in tho flooded dis
trict. A general feeling of relief was ex
pressed when the flood commenced to go
down but it fell only two or three inches
when it was ngnin augmented by the
rain which was steadily fulling in the
mountains. The rise was of but short
duration nnd by 5 o'clock the wator had
receded very .appreciably. Two hours
later it had dwindled down to a flood of
moderate size and no more danger was
feared.
If there hnd been a flood from Chlo
ride aa thero usually is when it rains
hoavily tn the mountains, the damage in
the business part of town would have
been much groater than it was and it is
not at all improbable that some of the
more insecure buildings would have beeN
washod down.
Where the greator portion of tho break
water at the foot of Main street was
rrtanding lnst Sunday morning, there is a
great vacancy, the dirt having been
washed out to a depth of 10' to 15 feet.
It will be impossible to build a break
water now where the ono put in this
summer stood, and Mayor Fleming is
considering whether it would not be the
wisor plun to construct a dam where the
old Main street bridge stood to hold the
water and thus obviate the necessity of
putting in a new broukwater. Such a
dam would hold the debris wushed down
and the arroya would soon ba Hilad up
to a level of the top of the dam ns the
Lyons and Campbell dam was filled up
just below the railroad bridge. There
is solid rock on which to put the foun
dation of such a dam and it could be
made strong enough to resist tho pres
sure of any flood which might con.e
d jwn.
Trains Tic Ip.
The heavy rains of last week did a
great deal of damage to the track of the
A., T. & S. F. R. R. between this place
and Rincón. Tho train which left here
last Thursday morning, at tho usual
time, returned at 12:30,. being unable to
get to Doming. Thero were several
washouts on the line between this pluce
aud Deming and there were others be
tween Doming and Rincón so that it wns
not possible to transfer tho mail.
The work of repairing the track from
this end went on slowly for the reason
that it was impossible to get a work
train uny where near the washouts.
There have boon a good many delays
in the running of trains on the road be
tween Deming and this place on account
of washouts but the running of trains
Lbs not been suspended for so long a
time before since the summer of 1886.
The regular tmin which left here lust
Wednesday morning took the lust mail
out of this place until Sunday.
On account of tho steady rains of Into,
the ground hus become so soft that it
washes away very easily, and every rain
that come does more or less duinuge to
the truck.
The washouts beyond Deming were
not repaired until last Saturday so that
a work train could be got to Vie wush
outs on this side. Sunday forenoon a
mail cur wus taken out from here and
the mail waa transferred near Crawford
station. The car wns started on the re
turn trip but when it reached White
water it waa ascertained that the bridge
this side of thut piuco liad been washed
away and the train could not get here.
Word waa received here Sunday even
ing thut the train was at Whitewater but
no one would venture out when there
wus such a flood as wus going down then.
A teuui wus sturted out early yesterduy
morning for the mail which was a lurge
ono, none having beon received hero
since the arrival of the truiu last Wed
nesday afternoop.
The railroad company has hud but a
small force of men at work since the
washouts occurred which accounts for
the long delay in getting mail through.
Muil might have been brought through
throe or four days ago by team but no
effort was nirde to got a team to bring
in tho mail until Sunday.
Conaidurublo work will huve to be dono
in order to get tho road in shapo so that
trains can get to the station hero but it is
probablo that there will be a train in
three or four days.
Col. Miu Twomoy tried tho ladder

There is water enough Box to insure a

Lant Thursday Mrs. Laird nnd Mrs.
F. M. Galloway, who is hero on a visit
from Deming, hud quite an exciting run
away. They wero out with a horse
which belonged to Mrs. O. B. Colby but
which was recently purchased by Shor-
iff Laird and which has quito a reputa- j
tion for running away. Tho horse be-'
enmo umnnnngenble and throw the
ludiea out of the buggy but neither of
them were beriously injured. Mra.
Galloway had a littlo child along nnd it
wus thought for a timo that it was badly
injured, but it soon recovered. The
horso did not ntop until the buggy wns
smashed to pieces and the horso was
badly injured. It is rather doubltul
whether it will ever be of any value
again.
Silver City was shut off from the rest
of the country the latter part of lust
week as completely as though it had
been a hundred miles up in the mountains.
