A cloud burst 20 miles north of Guthrie nt six o'clock Wednesday morning turned the already flooded valley of the Cotton wood into a deluge and tent a wave of water six feet high sweeping w ith ter rifle force tow nrd Guthrie. The great wave came down the valley like a cat aract and broke upon the sleeping city without a moment's warning. It came with a mighty roar, crushing house in its path, and swept across the lowlands of West Guthrie, leaving death nnd de vnstation. It is believed that over C00 homes are in ruins, hundreds of house having been floated away on the crest of the flood. Large numbers of people. possibly 200, have been drowned. Dridges between Guthrie nnd Seward have gone out nnd the railroad tracks are gone. The est hunted loss is betw een $200,000 nnd $500.0(10.

Dusiuess has been suspended in Guthrie, the stores nnd banks being closed. As thorough an organization for relief ns is jwissible has been made, but all aid Iras been necessarily retarded by the confused continuation of things. It will be impossible to explore the houses until the water shall subside, ns many of them nre submerged. Tlie flood i.s supposed to have been caused by a cloudburst, supplemented by heavy rains. The Cottonwood river is a small stream scarcely more than 40 feet w ide, that winds in many curves between the banks in West Guthlie, which lies in the level valley of the river. A ter lific. rain fell the day before, nnd a greater part of the night. The river was already full from a heavy rain sev eral days ago. No great nlarm was felt nt night, as the river rose gradually and the people felt that it wa.s impossible for the waters to rise high enough to overflow the steep bunks. About six o'clock in the morning the river began to rise as if by magic. Higher nnd higher it cmne, jumping four feet in 30 minutes at seven o'clock. Persons who saw the first wall of water said that it was nlout eight feet high, spreading entirely ncross the val ley. There wns no water in front of it save that In the river's channels. The first wave wa.s followed by others in quick succession, until the whole swelled into a bank of water from six to eight feet high. Many had already begun carrying their household goods to places of safety, but few had made more than one trip when they were forced to flee for their lives Jiefore a raging, resistless torrent that no jxiwcr of man could hope to stay. To add to the horror of the situation, the main supply pipe of the water works system burst where it crossed the Cottonwood, in the southern part cf the city, and nil the water in the res ervoir burst into the river. In the southern part of the city a long nrm of land is formed by the widening of the river. On this land lived hun dreds of negroes. During tlie night the bridge leading ncross the river to the city had been swept awny. The people were nbsorbed in watching the rising waters, when the fk)od from the reservoir came down in a solid wall and cut ncross the nrm of land near the mainland, cutting off the people from scape. They lied from their homes to the higher tortious of the newly-formed island. In half an hour the mountain of water had done Its work and prac tically spent itself. The air became hideous with the crashing of houses nnd tlie cries for help of the unfortu nates. When the first shock of the disnstcr wns over the more fortunate on the island Immediately lwgan to help those nearest them, while ncross In Guthrie roper prompt steps were taken nt leseue. i he nouses, liarns nnl other effects began to drift down strenm, each freighted with one or more human beings; boats or rafts shot out here nnd there from the shore nnd despernte ef forts were made to rescue the people. Improvised rafts were ouickly thrown together nnd started out Into the mad stream. Defore many of them hud been propelled a couple of yards from shore they were twisted nr:d broken by the witters nnd the would-be rescuers thrown into the stream. Half n dozen rescuer were drowned even be fop those they had tried to save had been reached. Wednesday night 40 or 50 people could be seen clinging to trees and roofs of buildings, but could not be reached, and Kp"ut the ni",lit there. ARROW POINTS.

Wash GOES TO THE SENATE. lAtna Content In Kentucky Rnde4 by the lllrrtlon u( Drbor, Frankfort, Ky., April 29, Gov. Drad ley has written out the certificate of election for Hon. William J. Deboe, of Crittenden county, a junior senator from Kentucky, to succeed Hon. J. C. S. Dlackburn, whoso term expired March 4. Senator Deboe will be in hU ent In the senate on Monday next. The end of tlie famous struggle which ha, extended over two legislative sessions will go Into history us the most mem orable Kentucky has ever known. Dr. Hunter came here six weeks ago with n majority In tlie legislature, with a clean majority of these republican atanchly for him and the additional backing of the national nnd state party organizations, but circumstances were ngainst him, and Deboe won on the one hundred and twelfth ballot. Amid Intense but suppressed excite mcnt the ballot was taken. It stood: Deboe, 71; Martin, 12; Stone, 1; Dlack burn, 46. After the official declaration of the election of Deboe there were such loud demonstrations that even the telegraph oftiees in tlie lobby had to suspend business nnd nothing but the bare bal lot could be sent out. The excitement was intense, as it ended a contest that w. J. deuoi:. has been waged here since last year. Senator Dlackburn and his friends, utter lighting hard for over a year, in the regular and the extra sessions, went down with their colors Hying The silver democrats concealed their disappointment and the gold democrat joined in the jollification. There never was such a scene in the Kentucky state house. The cheering nnd demonstrations were ended by the president putting a motion and declaring the assembly uil journcd sine. die. Deboe can never be charged with using money in his brief, victorious race. He and hi.s friends nre tco poor to give a banquet. He has re ceived hundreds of telegrams of con grattihition nml Is besieged by men for federnl positions In Kentucky. William J. Dehoe, the firt republican United States senator ever sent from Ken tucky, wns born in Crittenden county, Ky., In 1K-0. He received his early education in tlie schools and academies of Crittenden and Caldwell counties. 1 le attended Kwlng college, Illinois, and afterward whs Krndu at(d in medicine from the medical univer sity of Louisville, lie practiced awhile In his native county, and then took up the study of law, preferring tho latter profes slon, which ho has practiced for about nln years. Dr. Dcboo tlrst became prominent In politics when he was elected delegate to the national republican convention In lsx, which nominated (Sen. Harrison, in Chi cago. In WD he was elected superintendent of schools for Crittenden county, and in August of 1V.12 he was nominated for con gress. Although defeated, he cnrrled sev eral counties which had been democratic. From IS'.mi to the present tlmo he has been a member of the republican state central t ornmlttie. In lv3 ho was elected Btato senator, and drew tho long term. COL. JESSE PEYTON DEAD.
