Dent, of the firm of Wells & Dent, druggists, went into his wholesale and retail drug store in the Heinlin block, corner of Btnk and Bennett streets, with an alcohol lamp. The store had been more than two-thirds submerged and a barrel of gasoline was upset. The gas from this had risen to the second story and no sooner did this come in contact with the (lame than an explosion took place and the buildings were set on fire. Dent J DUPED FROM THE SECOND STORY WINDOW, badly burned and in the fall was seriously injured internally. The Wheeling fire de partment was unable to cross to the Island which is still covered to a greit depth with water, and there were no means of checking the fire. The Heinlin estate lose on their buildings $17,000 ; insured for $7,500. Wells & Dent lose $10,000 ; insurance $6,500. Geo. Griffin, grocer, loses $5,000 ; insured for $3,500.

MANY NARROW ESCAPES ARE REPORTED and doubtless several lives are lost which are not yet discovored. At Martin's ferry over two hundred people are led by the or ganized charity funds which are drawn from the pioceeds of fines under the Scott law. An increased force of the fire depart ment are pumping out the flooded base ments and draining water from the gas pipes. At midnight Eggy Condiery, a brother of Curley Jack, the noted cracksman, wis caught by two special policemen trying to enter a store in the flooded district. On the way to jail he ran and the officers fired several shots, finally -recapturing him and lodging him in jail. The few people out talk of lynching him, but it will not be dene. Tim McCarty, on the island, lost $2,500 in gold in his house which was swept away. Many other large sums of money were lost. The estimate on the total loss in this vicinity will reach $6,000,000, in cluding both sides of the river. I he Whittaker Sheet-Iron works and the Car Booting company lose $75,000. The steamer, John Lewis, arrived from down the river this evening, she was RIDDLED WITH BULLETS, and the passengers lying on the cabin floor covered with mattresses and life presrvers as a prot1' from missiles.

Great fears are felt of disastrous tloot water by the guards of the first lock above the city giving way, and should they break loof'e every vestige of property iu that section will up swept away.

At Moundsville the penitentiary ran out of water and the citizens had to carry it. The situation here among the homeless, snel- tered in school houses, churches, and other buildings, grows worse. Not enough food can be procured to feed them and give out . . T LI ' . t T r iu me ueiguuurmg iowds, wnicn are suner- mg. ALavor iuiUer said to-night he honed to avert appealing for aid to" the countrv at large, but found it would have to be done. weather all ovar the Ohio valley is foggy and drizzling but not much rain falling. The gas has lasted all through the night and there is still a supply on hand this morning. At S p. m the river is sixty-four ftvt and one inch. Already the river h-? ne BEYOND THE FLOOD OF 1 ! f , making this the third in r.u.. It has only five inches to rise unti" t.i- mark of the famotis flood of 1S32 wilt reached. There is now no doubt that puiut will be reached, and the race becomes interesting between 1SS4 and 18S3. In the Mill Creek valley, where immense vegetable gardens exist, the loss is incalculable, and it would be idle to compute in figures the total losses. Up to this time there has been no great disasters. No railroad prop erty has been injured except in the ma chine shops. The tracks, embankments and bridges in the vicinity are all intact. The Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton road has had no interference with travel, and its depot is used by the New York, Penn sylvania & Ohio and Cincinnati Washington & Baltimore roads, the coudi tions for comfort and safety are excellent. In the main portion o! the city the impres sion, that a large tract of the city is cover ed by water, is erroneous, and the portion submerged, except the suburbs, is not much used for residences, the main residence and business portion of the city stands on high ground far out of reach of the highest flood The police are reinforced by five hundred militia who patrol the streets at night Belief work here grows daily as the stock of provisions of the poor families impris oned in their houses diminishes. The best men in the city are directing the work and giving it constant personal attention. In Newport Ky., the burden has grown so great that the mayor has called on the neighboring Kentucky towns for help. Two caaes of drowning are reported to day. Marietta and Parkersburg have been entirely cut off by railroid and telegraph since Wednesday. This afternoon a sin gle railroad wire became opened to Bellpre, Ohio, opposite Parkersburg, and from this source it is ascertained that the flood hss been terrible at that point, and at 1:30 this afternoon the river was still ris ing. It has already gone NINE FEE HIGHER than last year's flood. The reason for the exceptionally high water here is that the Muskingum poured its unprecedented tor rent into the Ohio just as the floods from Pittsburg came nown. The frame depot of the Columbus & Hocking Valley road at Pomeroy, Ohio, floated off down the river to Point Pleasant, where it struck the pier of the Ohio Central read and went down. Pittsburg. Pittsburg, February 9. The waters are steadily receding. Affairs are resuming their nsual condition, and in a few days all traces of the flood will be obliterated. The effective arrangements lor relief prevented much suffering, which otherwise would have been experienced. Many manufac turing establishments resumed operation this morning, and others will start up Monday. With the exception of the Pitts burg & Lake Erie and Pittsburg, McKees port & Youghaigheuy all the railroads a.e running as usual. The Pittsburg & Lake Erie expects to resume Monday. der water. Many houses have been moved from their foundations and the river is still rising. Harrisburg. Harrisburg, Feb. 9. The ice in Cenodo quinot creek broke to-day and caused a tremendous flood. Four bridges over the creek between Carlisle and Susquehanna, valued at over $SO,000, were carried away, and considerable damage was otherwise done. Three dams are washed out and the mills badly injured. The freshet is the worst ever known in the Cumberland val ley. Portious of the wrecked bridges are now jammed against the piers of the Northern Central railroad bridge at the mouth of the creek. Galveston. Galveston, Feb. 9. A News Long view special says : It has been raining continu ously for nearly one huudred hours. The bottoms iu every direction are flooded, and many extensive washouts and slides haye occurred on the railroads. Gallipolis. Gallipolis, O., Feb. 9. At 6:30 p. m the river is five feet eight inches higher than last year, and rising an inch an hour. During the day a large number of houses and other property floated off. Maysville.

Boston, Feb. 9 The Mexican Central railroad announce that $1,076,000 has been subscribed pursuant to their call for Bl, 000,000. The directors voted to increase the capital stock from $25,000,000 to $26, 000,000. Steamer Lost. The ship Andrew Jackson, from Cardiff for Coquinto, is believed to be lost, with all on board. The captain had his wife and two childien with him. WASHING-TON. Toledo. Toledo, Feb 9. Reports from up the river show a more favorable condition of affairs, while the very high water is re ported to have fallen somewhat during the day. The ice gorges remain firm, and the water is passing off. With the exception of a partial destruction of a wagon bridge at South Toledo, no special damage is re ported. i?iom these reports the feeling i mat xoieuo will escape a flood gains strength. The unusual solidity of the gorges makes it reasonable to suppose they will remain unbroken, permitting the wa ter to escape gradually to the lake. THE PACIFIC RAILWAY. Washington, D. C, February 9. Judge Dillon, of the Union Pacffic rail road, appeared before the house committee on the Pacific railway to-day and argued against the proposed legislation affecting the Pacific railroads. Catlettsburr. CatletUburg, Feb. 9. The town is com pletely submerged. Onlv three houses on the hill side are free from water. Several frarae houses have floated off.

There is much suf THE CROOKED OFFICIAL INVESTIGATIONS. E. B Wiegand, examiner of the depart ment of justice, continued his testimony to-day before the house committee on ex penditures for the department of justice investigating the conduct of government officials. The witness was examined in re lation to the conduct of R. M. Douglas, ex-marshal of the western district of North Carolina. He said he found him impracticable and almost entirely with out business capacity. His office was in charge of his brother-in-law, who is said by Wiegand to be totally incompetent. The main object of Douglass, the witness thought, was to make his office pay the maximum compensation allowed by law rather than to failhfullv administer the duties of the positiou. Wiegand cited a number of instances of overcharges and false accouuts made for guards and trans portation, and said the report of four or five investigations of Douglass' office were against the incumbent. In explaining the charges against the deputies for making false accounts, the marshal defended them i fay saying the law allowed them to make enng. Three hundred families nr drvn I "ch charges.

A terrible tragedy was enacted on otirjS mam street this morning about 11 o'clock. Three brothers, Frank, Jack and William Flynn, were proceeding home in a hack, whea a party of seven men armed with double barrelled shot guns aud Winchesters, stepped out from the door ol a saloon and opened fire. The Flynns were armed but THI ATTACK WAS TOTALLY UNEXPECTED. Jack Flynn was shot through the fore head by a ball from a Winchester, and died in a few minutes. William Flynn was shot through the breast with a Win chester, probably fatally. Frank Flynn received a shot through the hand, inflicting a slight wound. Frank Hall, the driver of the hack, was shot through the back of the neck and died an hour afterward. Robert Hargrave, a bystander, was shot through the brpast and will probably die. J. H. Craig, a prominent lumber man, received a charge of buckshot through the back. His condition is considered precarious. THE DIFFICULTY originated some weeks ago on accouat of Frank Flynn endeavoring to prevent Doran from opening a cambling house. It culmi nated at the time in Doran making an at tempt to assassinate Flynn which he failed to do and fled the city. He returned se cretly a few niehts ago, but Flynn was un aware of his presence in the city until the fatal volley was opened on him. Intense excitement prevails now aid STRONG THREATS OF MOBBIXG the prisoners are indulged in. Seven were arrested and are now in jail. S. A. Doran, the two Pirutt brothers, Howell and three others. The citizens are loud in theircon demnation of the murderous and coward ly act. Judge Wood has been telegraphed to by leading citizens, requesting him to adjourn court at Malvern and return here and hold a special session to try the mur derers. If he consents the lav will proba bly be allowed to take its course. If he does not the citizens boldly threaten to burn the jail and hang the prisoners. THE ORIGIN OF THE DIFFICULTY as follows: Some two years ago Frank Flynn, James Lane, Chas. Watson and Louis Goodman were engaged as partners in an agricultural house. A dissension arose and the firm was dissolved. Lane continued the business, while Flynn & Goodman opened a rival house. Lane, jenlous of its growing popularity, began to circulate rumors affecting its character. Flynn remonstrated with him, and threat ened to break him up unless he closed. Lane, however, continued to circulate his reports unti 11 Flynn and Goodman closed their house. Flynn then took steps to cloye Lane's house, and suceeeded so far as to financially ruin him. Lnne left the city and went to Kewport, strll retaining his interests here. About six months ago he returned and openly boasted that "he would soon have a man here who would opeu his house, or would HAVE FLYNNS BLOOD. It was soon discovered that this was ne Alex Doran, a man whose record has bee one of blood and crime. In Tennessee and elsewhere he has murdered men in cold blood. He came here some three months ago penniless. It was known to Flynn he was a desperate man. Doran with two brothers named Pruittjat one time open ed a gambling house which Flynn through legal measures endeavored to suppress. A few days afterward Doran met Flynn and without a word DREW A PISTOL AND BEGAN TO SHOOT. Flvnn's right arm was creased and he re treated to a neighboring store, and drawing his pistol he advanced ou Doran, who in turn retreated. Officers interferred and both were arrested SubsequentlyFIvnn was placed under bond to keep the peace in the sum of hve thousand dollars. Doran left the citv but returnpd surreptitiously Tuesday ac companied by two or three companions, whose presence has been kept concealed. Flynn was unaware of his presence until the fatal volley was poured into them. As soon as the hack was fired into Frank and Wm. Flynn jumped from the vehicle and opened fire on their assailants, but without effect. THE NAMES OF TIIE PRISONERS now confined in j il are S. A. Doran, David and Robert Pruitt, Hurry Lenning, Ed. Howell. J. Lucius and John Allison. Excitement is intense. Hail is not dead as was first reported though he cannot live and Wm. Fiynn's condition is critical as well as Hargrave's. Craig's wounds are not considered dangerous. The Mapleson Troupe. Chicago, Feb. 9 In view of the calamity which has befallen Cincinnati Col.
