DUtreu at Wllllamiiport, Wn.LiAiisroBT, Pa., May 33.—All of tho horrors of the disastrous flood of 1889 have been repeated, and Williamsport nnd all of the country around has been swept by a mighty river that spread out over almost every portion of the city, carrying away with it property of such value that it is uttnrly impossible to calculate the amount. The river is now going down rapidly acd about one-half of the flooded territory is out of water. This is the center of the city. The lower portions east and west are yet under water. When communication with the out- Bide world was cut off at 3 o'clock Monday morning by the breaking of the wires the river had overflowed its banks east and west. It rapidly came up and spread out over the city, and early Monday morning it was impossible to get anywhere except by the .use of bouts. The night was one of terrible experiences. The water came up so rapidly in some parts that the people in their houses were compelled to fleo to the upper stories for safety and were rescued from there by heroio boatmen, hundreds of whom risked their lives to save others in danger. Light Plant Crippled. To add to the unfortunate situation the electric light and gas plants wero early crippled and- the city was In darkness after 3 o'clock. Half the big boom, containing 150,000,000 feet of logs, went out shortly after midnight. The other half went at about 4 o'clock. The logs in the mills along the river, as well as thousands of feet of sawed lumber and porilons of mills, were also swept away, and the loss to the lumbermen is as great as it was in 1880. The Market Street and Maynard street bridges, which cost the county $300,000, were carried away. The flood reached its height about 10 o'clock Monday night, when the water began to slowly go down. At that time it was about 33 feet high, which was within 1 foot and 10 inches as high as the flood of 1889. The city at that hour was covered with water as far as High street on the north in the central part, and in the east and west ends was completely svbmerged. Many of the smaller houses along the river banks wpre swept away, and others that were flooded were from 4 to 18 feet under water. No Lou of Life. A remarkable fact is that not a single life "appears toi have been lost. Burners of many droTitoJJngs have been heard, but so far not fijingle one has been confirmed. I'<' Lockhaven, Benovif i Jersey Shore and other points welt! were greater sufferers than in 1880.1!North of here the damage was not *o great. East of WUUaraaport there wak great destrno- have been swept away and many of the little mills and stocks of logs have gone with the great body of water. High Water tit Phllailelphln.

Two small bridges have boen washed away on the Frackville branch of the Beading railroad above St. Clair. At Lewisburg the water is nearly us high as the flood of 1339 and still rising rapidly. . £olllerlea Flooded. All the factories along the Lehigh river are closing down. At Easton and Bethlehem the factories are flooded with 8 feet of water. The flood at Reading is likely to prove as disastrous as that of 1889. Throe bridges have been carried away on the Pine Creek : division of the Beading railroad at Suedburg, Stony Creek and Dauphin and traffic is completely-checked. The reports from the coal. regions say that many of the collieries have been flooded and 'it inay require a week to, pump them out. . '.'.'.' -.Mov*d Oat the Cattle. TO GOVERN HAWAII.
