RIVER RAISIN ON RAMPAGE AND
MONROE SUFFERS FROM
OTHER PLACES AFFECTED
Flood Came and Ended Quicker Than
Ever Before and Water Reached
Highest Point Ever Recorded.
The 1908 flood of the River Raisin
has passed Into history, going as rap-
Idly as it came, but leaving a path of
desolation, damage and Ice cakes be
hind It. Cattle, pigs and poultry have
been swept awav on the flood and
drowned, fences were carried away,
buildings surrounded aud isolated.
residents fled from their homes and
abandoned their property until the
flood recedes. In many parts of the
city rowbnats were the only means of
transportation, as the water was so
deep that It was Impossible to send
horses through the streets. The break
ing of the big dam at Manchester,
letting loose the Immense amount of
water so suddenly, is blamed for most
of the flood.
The real flood came without warn
ing. At 2:50 p. m. the gorge that
formed two miles north of the city
and another 1.000 feet from the busi
ness center gave way under the pres
sure, ror more than an hour me ice
passed. Then It jammed between the
bridges of the Lake Shore and the
Michigan Central railroads, spreading
over the lowlands, in some instances
reaching the second floor of buildings.
It came and went quicker than any
other flood that the oldest inhabitant
can remember, and subsided just as
It was beginning to attack the fires In

The River Raisin rose again during
Sunday night and flooded another
small section ln the eastern part of
the city. The gorge is still holding
solid below the docks, and that section
is still under water. A repetition of
Saturday's occurrences is feared at
the next warm spell.

out Matters of More or Less Mo
ment Briefly Told.
The interstate commerce commis
sion has made public Its report on the
investigation of the charges against
western railroad companies for dis
crimination in rates and has recom
mended that the offenders be prose
cuted. Put E. H. Harriman is exempt.
One of the members of the commis
sion said that It was the opinion of
the commission that Mr. Harriman
as directly responsible for the re
bates and other violations of the laws,
but that minor officers of the com
panies who, it is alleged, have been vio
lating the laws, will be the target of
the district attorneys in the efforts
o criminally prosecute the offender.
This means that the employes of the
companies who made the rate and ar
ranged for the rebates will be the
ones to suffer.
This is the beginning of an investi
gation throughout the United States
of railroad companies that have been
iolatlng the railroad laws. It is un
derstood that roads operating In Mich

The test case probably will take
place in Los Angeles and then will be
carried to the United States supreme
Four whole buildings and two halves
of buildings are habitable in Moss
ville, Miss. The remainder of the
structures were blown down and many
of them swept outside of the town by
tornado. Two people were killed
and a dozen or more injured. Inhab
itants of .Mossville claim that their
village was scattered at least over
four miles of territory. A hatchet
picked up by a farmer four miles from
the village was from the stock of the
general store. The tornado cut a
swath several miles long through the
timber and almost every other ob
struction on the face of the country.
The loss will reach several hundred
thousand dollars. The towns of Soso
and Service were wrecked by the
same tornado and another small town,
Epps, was badly damaged. Owing to
swollen streams, washed-out bridges
and fallen wires few definite reports
have come from these places. At Ser
vice a small daughter of Isaac Hollo-
way was killed, and It Is reported that
a man, woman and two children also-

In one of the homes a woman gave
birth to a child today, and it has been
named Robinson Crusoe. To reach th
house the physicians had to use a skiff
The body of one man was found

A Panama Mine.
Ores containing gold, silver and
copper have been found In the cele
